Good lord, you were doing bottles of beer on the wall back in '05 too?  :laugh:

Congrats to all!  Job well done! 
It was quite a time.  I think GiC and I combined made over 150 posts that one night (Dec 30), back-and-forth with one another, posting about once every 3/4 of a minute.

But the congratulations go to all, who have made this site so successful and beloved!

This is definitely an unreal milestone for all.  I look forward to the next one! 
If we maintain the 8500+ post per month pace of Nov and Dec, then we'll get it before 2008 is over!

Wow! Has this been the biggest lull ever in posting on this thread?

Who wants to go through the thread to verify an answer to that question?

What about the Great Turkish takeover of 05 was it?? Or the Server Switch??

^^I wouldn't count those, since the Turkish Hacker Incident of '05 was due to this site witnessing so well to the Body of Christ, and the server switches no one could post.

So, was that period the longest voluntary lack of posting on this thread?

4 days?  I think there have been longer ones.  I remember at one point re-resurrecting the thread like 3-4 times after a week long lull...

But I may be exaggerating on the week thing...
You.....exaggerate?? Since when!? :p

Well I could, but I might need a cheap source of excessive quantities of alcohol in the future, so it wouldn't do tick off the Serbs. :p

I just call it "loza" cuz it's easier that way. 

it's not a brand per-say.  It's more of a KIND of shlivo.  It's actually "grappa" as you mentioned, made from grapes.  It's pretty vile, not usually good tasting. 

i'm not sure what kind you had, doesn't surprise me that you had a bad experience.

It had the most vile aftertaste.  :p  Though, I have now converted a Serb and Bosnian Serb to grappa instead of it.  Of course, they would be too embarassed to show that in front of their friends so they just pour grappa into a loza bottle, but anyways...  I knew I wasn't any match for Serbian nation pride.  :laugh:

i've had grappa too, and it was WAY better tasting than Loza. 

But you aint a Serb unless you drink something disgusting.  why make it taste good?  that would make ENTIRELY too much sense.  ;D ;D

LOL!  It was too funny.  I walked into the kitchen and my fiancee's mom was pouring grappa into this bottle with Cyrillic writing on it and pictures of grapes.  I just watched and she looked up and said "Uhhh.....  It is for my friends, they just wouldn't understand why we do not drink Serbian" in her thick accent.  Then she swore me to secrecy.  :laugh:

Let's be honest...the Serbs need no second bidding to crack the liquor cabinet....I'm sure some of them drink to celebrate the fact that the sky is blue!

LoL, tell me about it.  But it sure helps pass the time in boring lectures.   :laugh:
either:

a.  you have mad skill (which is highly likely)

b.  you are in a HUGE class (also highly likely)

c.  you are the master of deception (i wouldn't recommend this one). 

I can NEVER hide my phone in my classes, and I have a SLVR.  But then again, we usually have 10 people in our classes...so....

Some of my classes are huge which make it easy, others we all have computers in front of us, so it is easy to hide.  :p

You're gona love this...

I actually take notes in all my classes.  I have over 100 pages of notes for like every class.  I just copy word for word what they say.  that way later when everyone finds out the truth about them, at least I can provide the evidence... ;) ;D :p

Plus, MAC doesn't really come up with good games.  I wish they had internet in the classrooms...that would be incredible.
