LOL.

By the way... I hope people have noticed that we're now just a major posting day from 200,000.  I think it's 549 (now 548) left!

^LOL! 

If you're paranoid schizophrenic and you know it,
tell your inner voices to hide in the attic because NASA is instructing you through a brain implant to clap your hands.

Dude, look on the front page.  Under the heading "Forum Stats" it gives total posts, which at the moment are 199,691 (with my current one it will be 199,692).  200,000-199,692 = 308, which is one large posting day for us (if you check the archives under "More Statistics" you'll see that we've had 600+ and 700+ posting days, so 300 could be a "drop in the bucket").

Well, don't get too jumpy.  It's only a good milestone if we attain it through thoughtful posts, reasoned dialogue, great participation, or bottles of beer on the wall.

Obviously you jumped too quickly on the beer, since there were 4 options, not 3.

So, having 4 options instead of 3 is just semantics?

Let me discuss this in terms you can identify with: Let's pretend you and I are drinking beers (*ahem*; because we never did such a thing as that at Mt. Lathos...) and you have 4 beers in front of you. You turn your head to talk with your fiancee...

and suddenly you only have 3 beers in front of you, and I'm hiding an extra bottle under my chair! I don't think your reaction would be a discussion of 'semantics', young man!  ;)

I got such a good laugh out of this one.  And for SO many reasons.  LOL! 

I agree my dear Father, but we are discussing words here, not beers.  BELIEVE me, I wouldn't have even turned around if beer was in the picture... ;D ;D

Even I wouldn't make that mistake; and do I love my beer ;)  Don't worry - SWMBO will whip him into shape in no time; the beer belly will hinder him from defending himself! :D

It probably wasn't, if you're referring to the FrChris/Serb1389 question.

What's amazing in this is that it took OC.net 3.25 years to get from 0 to 100,000 posts, but now it's only taken 2 years and 2 weeks to get from 100,000 posts to the cusp of 200,000.

It's a testament to the new users who have joined the site over the last couple of years!

Ebor should be proud.... This thread has survived both the push to 100,000 and the push to 200,000.

200,000!

I think I also made the 100,000th post back in the day.  I'm just so glad to have been a part of 2 milestones.  I'd like to thank my agent, all the producers and directors, my parents, my nutritionist, personal trainers, the stunt doubles, my CPA, my investment portfolio guy...

Congratulations on reaching 100,000 posts, oc.net!
I think Dustin, Phil, and Robert deserve many congratulations, and many happy returns!

{edit}
Oh, and I'm not just saying this 'cause I'm a company man... I really enjoy the site, even when the discussions divert off to bottles of beer on the wall...
