SC closing in on one million posts!

There's still 30,286 posts to go as of this post, but I thought I'd start a thread to track it as we get closer. We can also guess who the one millionth poster will be.

I've included the 19 posters with the most posts and who are still at least somewhat active. You can vote for up to 3, and you can change your vote as it gets closer to one million.

Should take ~ 6 months, extrapolating roughly.

Winner gets a week in Reno with a member's mom of your choice.* Maybe Abdul will award a brass figamajee (sp?).

* You pay all expenses, and must find and convince her to join you.

From the Rules Committee:

1. Determination of winner shall be made by Judge Shemp.

2. All Judge Shemp's decisions are final, unless an appropriate bribe is paid.

3. Rules may be changed at any time at Judge Shemp's discretion without notice, especially when drunk.

4. Anyone caught cheating will be sentenced to a night in the box with Abdul and a bottle of Viagra.

5. Anyone caught NOT cheating will be sentenced to two nights in the box with Abdul and a bottle of Viagra.

6. No prize shall be paid for by Judge Shemp. Winner is responsible for paying for and collecting his/her/it's own prize.

7. Socks: Use 'em if you got 'em. Feel free to run up the post count.

8. ed is a cheating cunt.

9. Judge Shemp has the right to disqualify dumbfucks and stupid cunts.

Pfft!

One million is just a number, not something amusing like a prime number or a sum of consecutive cubes or any good stuff like that.

I have 4% of the vote, bitches! That's higher than Trumps approval rating, and I only had to vote for myself once.
Such potential!

I claim this is #1,000,000.

Prove me wrong.

That's not just rhetorical. I want to be proven wrong so I can see how it's done. 8)

After we pass a million, look at the date/time of each post.

Suppose we forget? It is likely after all. We could be trying to reconstruct the 1,000,000 post a year from when it actually occurs.

It does not bear thinking about.
