The prophecy foretells that on the day that The Thread becomes the longest thread on PF, PentaxDude will return, bearing a K-3 and a mighty roll of black gaffer tape. He will defeat the live Hocir, and bestow gifts of beer, bacon, and cheese upon all the True Believers. Sadly, on that day (or the next business day), Tokyo will be destroyed by a flood of lutefisk and Velveeta.

And there are factions that believe it will instead be a roll of silver electricians' tape.


Millions have died in the fighting over the centuries.

Hi guys, I'm new here

You just crack me up. I've read the last 15 pages or so and I've decided it's time to join in the fun!

Welcome, Berty; but you can't just junp in uninformed. You have to start at page 1 and read ALL of the posts, then get at least a 64 on the quiz. (Don't worry, it's only 732 questions.)

I thought it was just three questions, one with 730 parts, viz:

1) Name one of the smelliest foods known to mankind.
2) Why won't you buy a K-3? (hint: answer must NOT be photography-related)
3) List 730 OTHER reasons for not buying a K-3, as given in The Thread.

Right. Question 4. (It would be too easy to start at question 1, so we'll start at 4, then jump to 56, and so on)
Anyway, Question 4: When you wake up, what's the first thing you think about - (and yes, this is a multipe choice question)
a) lutefisk.
b) bacon.
c) (a) and (b)
d) Otis.
e) Fred. Any Fred will do.
f) FF.
g) Why everyone thinks Model T Fords were only available in black.
h) Donald's hair.
i) Velveeta
j) The hociR

Sad, but true. Then there are those weird numerological sects that believe the Great Taping will not happen until post #123456, or maybe #112358.
