Racer... this is a valiant effort, but... 40,000 - 30,021... that's still 9,079 posts to go
You don't have to blame him. He got the idea from me. It was, I admit, a little ambitious but without ambition we achieve nothing.

I went to the office all day. Was very foggy this morning and traffic was bad on the 420, it was a bit of a carpark in the 50 and 60 mph zones going the other way. Apparently people dodging a crash on the London bound M4 near Reading, 50 miles away.

Spam?
I missed that!
Was it the bacon variety?
Ugh, my mom eats that. She buys it, they eat it. One day she handed me a sammich. It was bacon spam. Fried Spam. After a couple of bites I inspect the suspicious sammich. "Seriously Mom? You gave me a Spam sammich?" Her answer was that I mentioned I was hungry. Her and my Aunt were quite pleased with themselves especially knowing I cannot tolerate MSG. They are crazy

I'm still dumbfounded how in around 12 hours you guys managed to spam this thread with nearly 300 posts.


And nobody was banned for it.
No, but we *did* get a not-exactly-subtle message from one of those Kiwi MoDeRaToR guys about it... Not a ban, though. Possibly since there were no Skwerlz involved.

I don't have to, no... but it keeps him alert and on his toes.

Oh, I agree. Tonight, my ambition is to have a couple of beers and watch some TV. With sufficient drive and clarity of purpose I'll achieve most, possibly all of that. Shoot for the moon, that's my motto...

You should save this for convenience, then you can copy and paste it for the other 259 weekdays of the year

A lofty expectation.


We should all aspire to such greatness.

I like to start and end each day with a sense of purpose, Racer. Sometimes I push myself too hard, I know, but I guess that's just how I'm built...

I have always liked that map projection, just because it gives such a different view...

A nice little (!) list of map projections...

List of map projections - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Scan thru those and you might be *really* dizzy!
