Ravus' Thread # 12,829
    #4566567 - 08/22/05 03:32 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Ravus: What's the alternative? Label each thread by a number?

Discuss.


--------------------



The proof is in the pudding.

Well Ravus, with the overwhelming response to this thread, seems your proposed numbering system just won't cut it.

I said this was an alternative, but a shitty one.

Now we have empirical evidence of the alternative, so why do we need a topic? Simply to catch people's attention; they'll end up going off topic anyway, but they need something to deviate from first.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

Your proposal was a well-crafted experiment - and now we know.

Good job!  :thumbup:

Ravus' suggestion was a good idea, but it failed to win popular support because it didn't go far enough.

I propose that we number all our letters as well as our subjects. The ASCII code is already well standardized, so I nominate it (in Hex, of course) for use in all future S&P comminication.

0x57 0x68 0x61 0x74 0x20 0x64 0x6F 0x20 0x79 0x6F 0x75 0x20 0x74 0x68 0x69 0x6E 0x6B 0x3F  :grin:

Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Are you quoting The Army of Darkness....or it's original usage in The Day the Earth Stood Still?

I know it only from The Day The Earth Stood Still. :shrug:

By the way Jigz, it's spelled Klingon with a K. Geez, what kind of geek are you anyway can't even spell Klingon? :shake:

Clingon is a hybrid offspring from Bill Clinton and a Klingon "babe". I personally could not "do" a turtle-headed werewolf. :shake:

Clingon with a C is also what I call a turd that didn't quite fall off my cat's butt and clings on as he exits the litter box. :eek:
