a cosmic query indeed

what would Carl Sagan have said? We can only speculate, but perhaps this will help

On the other hand, I just saw tonight that there are over 7 million folks on the Christian Mingle.

Not sure what it means, but that wouldn't be the first time.

I will bet that a statistical analysis will find that 70 plus % are OT, and 50 plus % are religious/ political in topic.

you sound like you're in the RANCHING business ;)

my twin buddies could USE you to nail up THEIR ol' fence posts,
that fast--with SKILLS like that, ;))


*they get a lot knocked down by not only their critters, but by near by elk, :))

it will never happen

SQL Server cannot deal with posts greater than 1,999,999 - I forsee a bad moon rising

WTF is everybody gonna do when the database gets flushed and everything returns to zero (not Mostel and not zeroBrown either)


there is a solution, but I will not reveal it until about 1,999,990


BTW

not 12 percent. twelve total.

can you send up the pointers to these 12 (apostles?)

I'll speculate April 14...

Of course guessing this close isn't tour de force...Dr. Ed's conjecture more than six months ago was a more audacious prophecy...he might be close

EDIT 3/23/2013: I meant April 24th...subtraction mistake. :-)

Yes, it's overwhelming how close Ed forecast this last year

The odds are that the two millionth post will not be about climbing- any wagers?

hey there say, cosmic... OOOOPS, as you can see, i am OUT dated, :O


oh my... well, whewwwwwww, i was wondering what could have made the second (so thought) one, needed, :O thought all was well and you were climbing, and of course:

you ARE... :)

and i was not thinking too clear, due to the clouds out tonight...
too much mommy worry, when i read the outdated note, is what it was,
enough so that i tried to cover home-base, but you'd already
batted and made the RUN and were now out CELEBRATING, :))

And counting.

Always smart to check the first posts on any ancient thread.

"This mouse dad's gotta put a SOCK IN IT..." from eKat on the front page kinda made me wonder if I've been here before, but that's silly. Just plain silly.

I know where I've been, and who's counting, anyway?




100 million is impressive.

If posting averages over the last two weeks continue, the two millionth post will come late on April 26.

But with good weather on weekends the average for those days may decrease and bring about a later 2M event...and you might be closer than any of us, Blue!

If the current trend on ST continues, the two millionth post will be more inane than the one millionth post.
