    That's pretty specific. You've clearly spent a lot of time thinking about this dilemma. That's a little on the scary side.

    There's something horribly wrong with the LTE post counter, I just posted and my thread post count did not change. Let me check again.

    Sweet, now I've passed DevilDeac!

    Tip du jour:

    Apparently, the thread post counter stays opened in a little window. To get a refreshed count, you need to close out the window and click back into the thread post count.

    This "wild card" duck doesn't fly.

    As long as we're negotiating, I don't want a tail that sticks straight out from the body. Give me a tail that dangles down properly, or a very attractive mallard duck that doesn't poop a lot, or a very cool cormorant and waterfront property. In return, you can have either a date with Cameron Diaz or a banana split with your choice of toppings.

    1) I'll take the banana split...
    2) There aren't any ducks that can't fly, right? So, I think you are stuck with the "wild card". Now, emus and ostriches may be another story. But that would obviously be a different one than the one we are discussing.

    Cayuga ducks can't fly. They are too fat. Or their wings are too small. I'm told they are very tasty, and lay good eggs.

    Does the duck quack vociferously?

    You can do it!

    Have you come down from your vacation high yet? Lost that rested and relaxed feeling?

    I think I can, I think I can...

    Yes and yes. The 1st week back was a killer with several 12 hour days and not much sleep so I could catch up on all the personal business in addition to work in the evenings to catch up on the daytime career. Thanks again for your suggestions. Did you ever receive my PM?

    Speaking of ducks that can't fly, was the dodo bird a duck? It looked like a duck and quacked like a duck. Wiki says it was a bird, close relative of the pigeon and dove. Still looks like a duck to me.

    Tip du jour:
    Some ducks are very fast, reaching speeds up to 60 mph.

    Ha ha, devildeac, I've taken the lead. With legitimate posts with genuine content about real matters such as ducks and the like. And during normal posting hours.

    I love the smell of victory in the morning!!!

    "legitimate posts", "genuine content", "real matters"-surely you jest?

    That would be like posting about posting milestones, beer reviews or diseases like "PW'ing".

    Tied! Perhaps we should set our sites on Wilson. Only 6 posts ahead, definitely within reach.

    Just to keep the post legitimate, I will mention duck tales. Duck tales.

    He (that's me) takes the lead again!

    Here's an idea: let's put the tail on the duck, and then have the duck follow Earljam! Brilliant!
