Anyway, I've been thinking that areyouincahoots' picture is much too cute to be real. And seriously, isn't she just a little toooo witty to be that cute? Then i saw ereandil's avatar. Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. I'd be willing to bet big money that areyouforreal looks exactly like ereandil's avatar, (and more than likely) the opposite is just as true. So....if you're following my logic here, and you want to flirt with a hot babe, forget about areyouwhatever and start pm'ing ereandil......lol

Well what can I say, it is a dame cute pic. But i tell you I know a few cuties that are smart, unfotunelty most of them are taken, and the others moved away. :( . But I would not be suprised if that is realy her!

... Looks rather real to me. I mean, she's a cutie, but she's not drop-dead hot or anything (if you read this Cahoots, don't be offended - cute is good! I envy youth and cuteness!).

... Now, Crimzon . . . that one is doubtful. :roll:

The point is?

Postby Scarus on Fri Apr 14, 2006 12:13 pm

I think you guys are missing the point. Which is, of course, to push our thread to forum and message board domination....lol

Maybe I should re-edit my previous post and include more lols....lol

The point is not to bag on areyouincahoots, but to simply call attention to one of online gaming's little quirks. You just never know who you're really talking to.

Plus, I really liked the fatman avatar....lol

Length Does Matter

Postby Scarus on Fri Apr 14, 2006 1:46 pm

Page 8 here we come...lol

I was pretty slow to warm up to this thread but now find myself completely committed to the cause. I really like this kind of stream of consciousness posting.

The Giants are in town tonight and everyone is getting keyed up to go out and Boo Barry!! We have three sports talk radio stations in town and that's all anyone is talking about. It's pouring rain right now, so I don't know if that's going to work out or not, but Dodger Stadium only had one rainout all of last season so everyone is keeping their fingers crossed.

I'm all about being committed to this cause - I also think there's more of a challenge to this longest thread thing than we first realized. To me, you see, if the thread ceases to be the longest thread thread and becomes a longest thread about something other than being the longest thread, we will have defeated ourselves somehow. For a moment there a while back, I was afraid it would become something of a flame war thread between the north and the south, but I think we've retreated from the brink of ruin on that front.

I think to really be a thread about the longest thread, its subject matter can't be supplanted by anything really worth talking about - it kind of has to be a thread about nothing.

That said, I think a discussion of whether or not it is a thread about nothing is reasonably within the bounds of being nothing, so all your comments are welcome...

Boo steroids.

Postby Scarus on Fri Apr 14, 2006 4:20 pm

I agree RockSolid. Once we start talking about anything in particular we are succumbing to relevance.

Kind of reminds me of the whole slant on the final days of Seinfeld. A show about nothing. Everyday people pursuing absolutely meaningless goals.

Truly an example that we can aspire to follow.

SHOUTING?

Postby Scarus on Fri Apr 14, 2006 4:34 pm

Hmmmm....Good Point.

Truth is that for years I have been primarily posting on MSN Groups messageboards without avatars. Obviously, on this board you can see the avatar and you know who is posting. Just an old habit that I need to leave in the past.

There must be some kind of mathamatical formula that sets forth some kind of ratio of how many posts you make to how many people you annoy....lol

Then again, some people are more easily annoyed than others. You are truly Insulted by this?.....lol

I'll look around and decide if I want to put my name in my sig, or not, but the name at the end of the text has got to go. ..... Well....maybe one last time just to make sure that you know that it really was Intentional this time....lol

Paperplunger and I have already had this discussion about leaving names after a post. Indeed I have the habit from MSN Groups also, along with a few other forum boards. And to me it just seems like the right thing to do. I always sign my letters at the bottom, even though I put my return address on the envelope and they know who it's from. It just seems like the correct thing to do.

And by the way, Seinfeld is a great show. I've got the first couple of seasons on DVD, and they always make me laugh. A few particular scenes from episodes sporadically pop into my head and I'll just start laughing. But along with Seinfeld, Whose Line is it Anyways is about the only other show that I genuinely laugh at time and time again.

Edit: Did anyone ever look up the longest post on the internet? hehe, it'd be neat to see what the 'actual' longest post has.

I don't know how many pages we should be shooting for, but I think for each page we completely control, we need to get a bonus number of armies per turn.

Scarus

(It's contagious)

P.s. This just in: as of April 14, the longest thread on CC is 176 posts, a thread in the Callout index. This number is growing at a pretty impressive rate, so if we're serious about this, we've got a ways to go before we can overtake them. But I believe in us, and you should too. Go Longest Thread Squad! I only post this information so that nobody has to go looking at any threads older than April 14 to find a longer one - some of these indices have 8 pages. I only went to the trouble myself because of my unflagging dedication to this endeavour. Feel free to send me Easter chocolate in gratitude.

Why did rocksolid sign himself as Scarus? I'm confused.
