I call foul. I could have posted four in a row and ended it but my kind nature got the better of me.

But now I see that 9k is more realistic as an end.


This is the thread that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friends...

thanksgiving was yes, but when you work 3 weeks on the north slope you might not be home at the actual holiday time. so a friend was cooking her husband his turkey dinner (which he missed being in the frozen white north) and needed some friends to complete the holiday aura.

this thread might be deserted if GNT were still around. after all the post padding, who knows how many of us would've stuck around.

will there be a prize for 16K posts also?

I think she would keep the "Underwood" name, as it's what has brought her fame, that and a wonderful singing talent, oh, and she's kinda cute. Plus, I think once your rich, you just do that, keep your maiden name in the event that a wedding breaks out, that is.

i always wondered why labs were equipped with fume hoods, now i know (and knowing's half the battle)

The fume hood is the only safe place to be on burrito Monday at the cafeteria.

For me it's Tuesdays. That's when tacos at Taco Johns (regional Tex Mex chain) are still just 49 cents.
