If my Junior High math studies are still relevant, "5" in Roman numerals is something along the lines of "V," or something!

The next contest hasn't even begun yet, and the controversy is already broiling!

I believe that the tradition was properly started with this contest, "Good Karma IIII" and should be continued in the sprit that it embodies.

I held my tounge back then, but I can remain silent no longer!!!! (Plus, I wasn't sure how to say "4". Is it IV, or VI???)

But think of the possibilities. If we maintain this tradition untill its origin is forgotten we will have people people posting about what idiots we are. That will be well worth the price paid.

I will bow to your superior math grade but I must trump the double negative.

I still think that there was a hidden message in the 11:42. perhaps if this post were read backwards.............

And the award comes back to Ohio. We might be #1 in pollution....but we're also #1 in good karma.


Way to go Beverly.

Hey! Somebody changed my guess, I had 8.703 in my post in the original thread!! Somebody's Cheatin!


















My guess is saying stuff like that won't actually help my karma all that much...

The way it works for me is this. If good karma reaches CC I still won't have won a chance to view that video. That's how good I am at these things.

Okay, if I can't win, I'm happy as long as someone else beats Big Paulie.

Sooner or later, I'm going to nail one of these Good Karma contests, and when I do there'll be hell to pay!
