Fewer than 140 needed for the milestone!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

115 and counting.  The stirring debates, while exhausting patience and whatnot, are indeed pushing the forum toward it's next big accomplishment.

What bugs me is when someone thinks of a 5-letter word that uses a couple of high scoring tiles, and one tile in the word lands on a triple-word-score square.  I had an opponent once score something like 48 points on that word. :P

Yikes.  I feel your pain (or is that just heartburn?).
Yeah, I've learned never to play Scrabble against a professional writer. :P

(82 and counting) This milestone seems to be coming with less fanfare than the others... No big count-downs, no great anticipation... Bummer.

10/3/2002 - 1st Post
12/30/2005 - 100,000th
01/15/2008 - 200,000th
03/19/2009 - 300,000th

That's quite an acceleration in posting: 3 1/4 years to 100,000; 2 years to another 100,000; now, just 1 1/6 years to another 100,000.

If I had to guess, it's probably some count from whenever they were "enlightened by 'the Prophet.'"

Are you serious?  I mean it makes total sense....But then wouldn't it be a "enlightened by the prophet" calendar and not a "persian" one per-say.

Persian is solar and Muslim is lunar, so Persian has a stable schedule of days comparing to Gregorian or Julian. See more on wiki.

^^  Just supposed to cut down on the bite, isn't it?

Then again, if coffee isn't strong enough to grow hair on your chest, what is the point?   :laugh:

You know what really cuts down the bite?  Replacing your regular morning coffee with... Beer.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

If Starbucks worked for coffee, can Beerbucks be far behind?  Drat, those liquor license restrictions would be an obstacle....

For an animal who's feet are supposed to be lucky, the rabbit doesn't seem to be to terribly so.  And they even have four... hmmmm.
