Me: 4462 posts.

If I spent only an average of 3 minutes per post, this totals 13,386 minutes.

13,386 minutes is 224 hours or twenty-eight 8-hour work days.

It must be more then that, because my average minute per post time is probably higher than 3 minutes.

This is just time spent posting. Itdoes not count the time I spent reading threads.

this thread should have a stickie so that it is permanently on the top of the list! I hate to think how many minutes of wasted lurking I've done

If it was wasted, are you saying you had something else that you preferred to do instead of posting?
Did you expect to get more satisfaction out of your posts than you actually received?

I probably should have said time "spent" rather then "wasted." Wasted is not really fair because I'd like to think that some of the time I spent posting was of value to some people.

What caused me to think about this was the new 911 thread and my temptation to post on it.



That's me at the keyboard:

It didn't take me three minutes to post this.

Yer gonna die!!!

Didn't even take me three minutes to add the edit and read the whole thread.

While I get satisfaction out of reading and posting, there are other things that would give me greater satisfaction that I could do more of in the future, if I spent less time posting now...

wasted?!

I posted 202 times. All educationa, high moral, and mature material!

In exchange, I received respect and love. This forum shaped my religious believes and political views. I also have some plans to read posts relted to climbing if I can find them here.

PS. Oxycodone makes me happy, happy, happy :))))))

Who knows. . .but a lot of time I've spent here has
been informative, even entertaining, and yes, even educational.

Suprisingly this is only my 1717th post. I've said it before, I used to watch a lot more tv so I consider myself better off. Typically I spend a lot more time on most of my posts if you include editing photos and whatnot.

Is it wasting time if you are at work? Is it a waste of time if your learning something or getting psyched? Is it wasting time if you are reading political threads & posting on them?

I can answer yes to only 1 of these questions.

officially have been here since 2002, but was actually posting before you had to register.

I have only posted 2745 times though. I am weak.

None. I have profited immensely from the ST forum. Don't ask me how I measured it.
