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.
If you wish to award a brass figamajee (sp?) every time we hit a prime number, feel free. :roll:

Also, I did a test to see if deleting a post permanently would change the post numbers of posts made after that post. It does not. So you can't cheat by deleting post 999,999 to make post 1,000,000 change to post 999,999. I'm sure Abdul and ed were considering this.

No. Only interesting prime numbers.

For example NOT 1,000,003. :P

I'll award a brass figamagee to the first poster whose individual post count is one million.

Didn't pillory hit that a long time ago?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I have over 20,000 posts. That's over 2% of all posts on this forum.

I do believe that qualifies me for stock options.
Such potential!

Ummmm .... how does one know who actually posts 1,000,000?
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)

Hover cursor over post title, post number (as well as forum and thread number) appear in your browser in the URL address.

How long have you and Abdul been here? :roll:
Because, you dumb fucking itinerant wanker bastard, Abdul and I are gentlemen who have better things to do than to explore the innards of a goddamn forum. How underemployed does one have to be to find what you found? How many wasted years were spent in that pursuit? If such time were spent gainfully employed, even at your chosen "profession", how much money might have been realized? For you the number is insignificant but for others one can only weep at the wasted time and effort.

Ponder that you Sisyphusian toad. :x

No need. I have hired mexicans to post in my stead. Watch my numbers climb.

We need another thread about space heaters to get ed and Lister posting at full speed. :D
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

I tend to think of it as a Jewish dish, but honestly it's probably Byelorussian. Not African American, No no no no no. :coolspecs:
