View Full Version : Fastest Thread to 100 Posts

I noted with a minor degree of crowing satisfaction that the 'Digress here...' thread reached 100 posts in a paltry 39 hours and 3 minutes. This soundly trounced Herr Draper's 'Guess the film' thread, which took a languid 65 hours and 6 minutes to achieve the same total.

Just wondered if anyone wanted to use this thread to break the record?

Even with flood control you could do it all by yourself in 7.5 hours.... ;)

If you digress from digressing, where does that leave you

Man-on-the-fence, that all depend on whether you are doing what Onan the Clumsy is on about! :eek:

Gimme a break you lot! :( If you are trying to see if you can break the server with all these long posts at least have the decency to fork out for a cherished, Personal Title so I can afford to get the server serviced and patched up to sope with all this extra work you are so kindly loading on to it. What a bunch of [email protected]!

Capt Sir

Do I look like a Chinaman ??? :rolleyes:

Cant afford a personal number plate thingy but I will buy a T-Shirt, something more for Mrs Fence to iron.

23rd Aug 2001, 17:30
I thought the title was fitting, for to our companies, most of us are indeed:
"just another number" .... :D

Can we pay to have a title added to SOMEONE ELSES name? I have one in particular ....
(Could become a bidding war to title that person)

Oh, if one is doing nothing all day long, how does one know when they are through?

Capt. PPRuNe, Sir,

Just out of interest, is the "just another number" thing permanent? Ok, I know nothing is permanent, because you can (and will) change it on a whim!

But I'd hate to pay for "NOT just another number", only to find that the day after the money comes out of my account, everyone else goes back to PPRuNe Line Training and my hard-earned dosh is wasted on an irrelevant title.....

23rd Aug 2001, 18:28
I think i see a pattern to getting a title.
You just whinge alot and then you get a free one!
If that is indeed the case...

I hate everyone, especially #1 and he smells...alot! :mad:

(sorry) ;)

23rd Aug 2001, 18:30
[email protected] certainly got off to a flying start - for a moment I dared to dream, but we ran out of motivation towards the end... :(

Well, saved me from having to say: "suck on this, draper!" - which could have been misinterpreted to say the least...

24th Aug 2001, 00:51
Tricky Woo,

Wait a minute. I'm gone for a week and you've raised your posting count from about 400+ to 1,000+. God, man, did you get any sleep at all? Or did you pay off that flying pig big bucks to raise your status? At the end of the day, as the Brits say, bribes work.

I also hope you get the T-shirt, the cap, the badge, the key chain, the personalized ID card for the luggage (that's a good idea), and the personalized member number. How about a package deal for $99.99, postage and handling extra.


24th Aug 2001, 00:57

24th Aug 2001, 01:19
Ok guys and gals, lets all face it Tricks has lost the plot!!! Yeh, Ok up until about 3 / 4 weeks ago we would get the occasional gem from him, full of wit and sarcasm as a result of his spending too much time with "les petites Suisses" and this we could all comprehend and maybe even accept.

But now - well what are we to do - out Tricks has gone into 6th gear and his fingers are working overtime. Come on Tricks, slow down a bit and take plenty of anti-pprune juice to recover...

oh and btw how many is that now??? :eek:

back to the topic of the personal titles
so what do i have to do to get a free one?
i thought i already bitched and moaned :p
just doesn't seem to work for me. its like when i tried to get my name in a different colour in chat like some people have. i asked what who i would have to sleep with to get my name in green (my fav colour) and i even had the jessica rabbit icon at the time!
didn't work :(
but last time i saw danny in chat i noticed that he had his name in green, i wonder if he does this to show that he can and i can't
how cruel! :(

24th Aug 2001, 12:34
How do you even get a paid-for personal title? I think I missed that one.

Oh, and I'll help the cause also.

I stupidly took the time to read some of the posts on this thread. I noticed that that scoundrel Arrow2 is accusing me of having lost the plot of late. Utter bollocks, obviously.

I will admit that the onset of the P1K barrier may have increased the flow of my postings of late. What I won't believe is that the quality of my posts has varied in any way. An easy guarantee, seeing as the quality is horrifically low, in any case.

Please read the exchange between myself and Herr Draper encapsulated in the 'Best Job' thread, and then tell me whether you think that the infamously evil-humoured TW is flagging or not.

About being hung or decapitated ;

Well , from a certain point of view ,if you want a "painless" death between these two types , you should go to decapitation.
Also decapitation provides some last minute entertainment for your self (if you are willing to get more out of your death experience). You see, your head is,hopefully, separated out instantly by the guillotine (the method of choice here) you still (or your brain..more precisely) have all that blood trapped and I don't need to say what the TUC (time of useful conscience) is. So all you need is to arrange with your executor that he immediately pick your head so you can see your body laying down there. This can't be done when your hung (not in a still physically mode..). So you can see for your self how you really were. Not the image on the mirror. Or a photo...or video..

Of course...accidents can happen..even in the time of death. If the executioner puts the rope in a wrong way around your neck...it will be a VERY painful way to go away. The bright side : you can still exercise your self (debating) before you go definitely away!
And if you don't use a guillotine...the executioner may not put too much energy on the axe and..oops half job done. You'll die for sure...but with some big neck pain.

All said....I think I am going back to my grave.... :p :cool: :eek:
