In the 5 years I drove Monstro and company, I drove far enough to circle the Earth more than 32 Times.
Or, look at it another way.

I could have traveled to the moon and back twice.

Actually this thread was started by someone who was unhappy with the livE hociR.

I referred to that page, post 2, recently, when the Mod Jim said that there was a certain word which should not be used here, and the that post included that word with a couple of extra letters.

Ironic that something started off as being a "satire thread" has ended up being so focused on one sick person - but he deserves it.
Well, James is an icon, too. A few posts a while back delivered bad news with a wonderful outlook on things ... a remarkable person.

But I found this only because of a side comment made on Rupert's "Squirrel" thread - other than being quieter than usual, that thread hasn't been affected by these events.
Yes, I think this thread is different in that regard. Too. Most other threads have a theme or topic. This being The Threadô it is above all such things. It is all-encompassing (almost) and as such the regulars here get to know things about each other that are rarely touched upon in other threads.

Lewdfish eaters and Velveeta eaters get along just fine here, for the most part.

I have just got off the phone with Gail, Jim (Rupert)'s wife. Gail has asked that I share with you that Jim is in the hospital. With luck, he'll be discharged tomorrow and Gail will take him home.
I'd like to ask all of you to keep Jim and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for the update Mark.
I guess it's about as good of news as we can expect at this time.
