Great Milestone...

But the burning question is what was posting #7523 about?

I advise caution. Before long, you'll be having complete conversations with yourself.
I mean, just look a pcad.

I hope you don't ride as slowly as you type.

4 posts a day for 7 years... 1460 posts a year.

pcad posts that much before he has his second cup of coffee every day.



Seriously... you add a lot of quality content to this forum.

BBM,

You should have seen the burger I just had for dinner!

Local joint called the Nook.

Large, larger, largest.

I need a nap.

You'd think you'd have gotten the hint by now....

Really, we wouldn't have it any other way.
We're here because people like you are here.

And I'm saying that with a straight face.

If you weren't wasting time posting, you could be doing something constructive....

Like building mixtes for new members, and then have them piss and moan.


On a more serious note: I've benefited in a few ways from your posts and your shared wealth. Thanks

Always enjoy your posts BBM.
Always incisive, and only lacking in the requisite degree of enthusiasm for U-08's.

If you were paid a dollar a post, you could probably find a Confente.

Wow. As someone who still feels kinda like a newbie(didn't come back for a long time after the first time), I thank you for the good/educational posts of yours I've read.

Little Darwin did get me thinking, though. What Was BBMs first post/thread?
