September 21 is talk in third-person day.

Chris L has just made this declaration, as it is currently September 21 in Chris L's part of the world.

Chris L also believes that it would be unfair for everyone else to miss out on the fun.

Rowan's not so sure whether ChrisL is bored or just short of a few snags on the barbie. But Rowan certainly got a good laugh out of the thread title.

Hey, Rowan's now part of the Trollie club! Wow!!

Of course, it only confirms that Trollie really does have good taste in men -- ChrisL, NZLcyclist and Rowan are all good Antipodeans.

It would seem to Chris L that Rowan, NZL Cyclist, Koffee and Trollie are all relative newbies on this site. Apparently they are not aware of that day in 2001, when Chris L celebrated his 1,000th post on bikeforums by observing a 24 hour period of third-person posting.

lotek thinks that ChrisL has always talked this way.
Lotek also thinks that ChrisL just wanted an excuse to advertise
and legitimatize that fact.

Lotek thinks this is a good idea.

Lotek, speaking for Marty

Chris L agrees, however, there is a little thing called "work" in the way.

Methos once again missed out on all the fun and now has to pull out the dictionary to look up antipodeans. Stupid big words.

You should try using the second-person. You'll find it really difficult to refer to yourself.

What I want to know is, if we're antipodeans, who are the podeans?
