    Has anybody seen that show on the history channel? I watched it last night. Many prognosticators converge on the same date. The Mayan calendar mysteriously ends on December 21, 2012.

    Most disturbing to me is the alignment of the sun, earth, and the black hole in the center of the milky way. A few scientists postulate this alignment precipitates a shift or reversal of the earth's magnetic poles. Cataclysmic!

    I'm torn between going to Church everyday and dancing with the devil, frivolously spending what's left of my money and engaging in drunken debauchery.

    Perhaps we need a poll.
    We had a thread about this already. I want to say it was 9 months ago, but I can't find it. The SEARCH function isn't finding it easily. I want to say that EarlJam got this thread rolling.

    Cheers,

    Hey DA, isn't that some company out of Redmond WA called MS? A little different but same concept, how many times have you used MS Outlook and needed to attach a file before sending to only find that you have to resend because the attach "a file or item" button is right next to the "send" button. I can't tell you how many times I've done that especially after completing the master piece email.

    Thumbs up

    Was just wondering if one of the DBR'rs from FL is here at my work today in VA. I pulled into the garage here at work earlier this morning and backed into my spot right next to very nice cadillac to only look to the left and see a DUKE ALUMNI sticker on the back door window behind the driver. Wow, what a great way to kick off the morning! The plates were from FL, so was just thinking.....

    Well apparently it got moved, and quickly forgotten in the obscurity of the LTE. If I want to post something that gets paid attention to for all of 2 seconds, I'd have posted it here the first time. Anyways, point proven.
    Mmmm, BBQ!

    I have suffered the exact same frustration from time to time!

    In this case, I didn't ask to have it moved, I just wanted to get us closer to 11,000 posts

    I only need one more post for 1500. Hmmmm, I'll have to think about that one.

    I was looking at the stats for both threads. Pretty amazing juxtaposition with the numbers. The LTE is of course, the most visited thread. But only in numbers. Ymm, beer has a higher percentage of views per replies (VPR).

    thread---------------replies------------views
    Ymm, beer------------2128------------42,908
    LTE------------------10,884----------108,192

    That's a 20% vs. 10% difference, and it means more people view what is written on Ymm, beer. I've deduced through strict scientific methods that this is because Ymm, beer offers information for the good of the community and that the LTE suffers from an incurable case of A.D.D..
    An excellent analysis. I believe I'll go have a beer...

    Where's the science? I see no hypothesis, experimentation/observation, etc...

    I guess the RPV would lead me to think that the YB thread doesn't get people to respond as much. On the other hand, the LTE gets people to respond. Or maybe the percent of PWing is higher on the LTE.

    I think your last sentence sums it up precisely...

    I'm home. And sick. Won't be making it to the game watch tonight and I'll be lucky to make it through the game. Already announced I'm staying home tomorrow and maybe Fri.

    Thanks! I asked the pharmacist in CVS today if there's anything I can take to speed things along or make me feel better in the meanwhile... no dice.

    Forgot to mention... my organization won Star of the Year at the conference I went to! There's Rookie of the Year, Innovator of the Year, and (the biggie) Star of the Year. Woohoo!
