Tests make me nervous. Was this test announced? I didn't get a chance to study for it.

Please disregard all previous posts except for the first where we were supposed to disregard the thread.

Why create a thread if we are supposed to ignore it? That's like putting candy in front of a five year old and telling them they can't eat any of it.

And why in Foo? I should move it over to where he usually hangs out. Or better yet, we should all start Foo threads in Cyclocross.

hehe over in another forum I'm in - we would have a "vacation" (haven't had one in a few years) and we invaded the Hiking section of the forum (rodale magazine) and spend the day with the "mall walkers" as we ribbed them on their hiking sticks being used on the escalators in the malls, we got it fed back to us with the tricycling jokes, etc. Mods let us go as long as we played goood in the sandbox...

didn't the US military do a lot of testing back in the 50's and 60's?

Yeah, but they did some of that testing at Bikini Atoll, so it can't be that bad can it? I mean we are talking about an atoll made entirely of bikinis, right?

Hey. Slow down. Nobody said anything about bikinis in the memo. It's not even spring. I'm gonna need a couple more weeks before I'm ready for that.

Because I wanted to test the HTML wrap tags to see if it would render the enclosed HTML or not, and there isn't a generic "testing" forum or sandbox that I could find. Given that Foo is "Off-Topic chit chat with no general subject," I figured Foo would be best.

I also hang out in Road Cycling and Singlespeed & Fixed Gear. Knock yourself out.

Really, I didn't think it would generate so many replies. My bad.

How naive, young padawan.

Why I remember on another forum, years ago, we had a thread somebody started with the title, "testing...do not reply". It was the longest running thread on the forum with thousands of replies.

Meh. You didn't have to reply. This is a no reply thread, silly you.
