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.

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:

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 :))))))

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.

your question requests
of me to linearly quantify
a relative exchange.

i will attempt most any things;
though i fall short in my effort to meet your challenge,
because only the wind suggests
the absolute truths.

and whenever i play god,
chance hides behind my arrogance;

and the winds upon which chance travels
are sucked into the as#@&%e of time.

"Nemo, Sister Mary Simon, no time have I wasted, just copied and pasted to get the attention of those who ARE wasted."

Sr. MSimon was our Latin teacher. She was not a lay teacher, but could lay on the homework!

Ergo, I like to read this play, one of Bardini's best. Tempest About Nothing.

I like it better than his unfunny Two Gentlemen from Ventura, which I thought was in boorish taste, especially the scene where they blow Budweiser up each other's noses. But they were in Canada, and it gets the point across that Canadian beer rules! But I knew that coming here. So that beer thread might be a waste. No beer drunk is wasted.

She's no longer a nun, and has a shop selling sex paraphernalia and blogs as Sister Neverbeen. She also taught classics. I think she'd have appreciated Bardini.

And Norwegian.

sigh.


ST is like my life.

There are great moments!
I've read some great stories.
I've reconnected with 5 old friends and made at least 6 (that I've met and climbed with)new ones since late fall 2008.
I've written down and shared some stores that are worth saving.
I feel like I am part of the ST family! (on a good day on ST)

There are "downer-moments"
Posting on politard threads.
Quibbling with people, just to quibble.

And there are the many wasted moments.
No-one to blame for that but me reading those threads.




Best Wishes to all that post "good-schist" on ST!

For Christ sake! Buy a dictionary, you, you...or sum thesaruri. Got a toolbar?

It's "wuibble."

I been there, Fritz, and I don't just mean the Taco, I mean the lovely long grade III in our friendly skies to the north.

No time wasted. Helped save my life. Lots of stellar new friends, reconnected with old friends. I began climbing, got a job in a climbing shoppe and another in the Eastern Sierra which added hiking, peak climbing, and kayaking to my life along with more new friends from Lee Vining, June Lake and Mammoth.

Love yo Super Topo. Lynnie

Edit: and I didn't even mention, all the Face Lifts, Nose Reunion, Granite Climber at the Autrey Museum I could go on and on. ..... and on. :D

Looking back...I'd say the amount of time I spend on ST is directly proportional to the size of my stomach. Thankfully I've been on a smaller stomach cycle the past 12 months or so...

Occasional snacking is okay ;)

ritz, I agree, you are correct, it's absurd to question a man of your "hey, whate'er" attitude and integrity. But...

Are you sure you were there in the Bugs in 1972, as your photo suggests?! Because The Flames were there in 1970. I think we may have just missed Weej, as I posted sometime in the last month somewhere, don't waste your time looking bcause I already have, speaking of wasting time, so we might have just missed your party, as well, by a similar phenomenon, assuming, per the suggestion above, that time doesn't exist.

Now, more than ever, it seems as if it is very acceptable and maybe even legitimate to think in this way.

I know how to waste time productively. QED.

Likewise the brilliantly misguided Ed Hartoun.

What's Supertopo? Oh, you mean that bunch of climbing clowns who talk about everything under the sun, and then some.


Hey Mouse from Merced, did you really go to Catholic school? It was torture for me.

Got kicked out in sixth grade, but mom talked them into letting me back. Mother Superior, Sister Gregory, slapped me so I kicked her in the shin (that was in seventh grade).

It was public school after that.

Mouse: I know that East Ridge Bugaboo photo was Sept 1972 since I have great recall of significant events in my life. Besides, the slides were date-stamped.
It was a significant trip to me for several reasons.

by Jillian Ney:
"Way back in the day 2004 to be precise, Ridings and Gefen found that people participate in virtual communities for six reasons: (1) exchange information, obtain and transfer information about a topic, (2) social support, obtain and give emotional support, (3) friendship, to make friends, (4) recreation, for entertainment, (5) common interest, love the topic of the community and (6) technical reasons, technical features in the community."

I know we are missing a few

Also, I would add:
...and the post proliferation is proportional to the level of intoxication
