    Besides, we don't "donate", rather we "Make a substantial contribution for the health & well being of the Children". And then we write it off !

    As far as a perpetual -motion device, look into the Mexican operation of rat breeding & cat skinning, for the production of cheap fur coats.Skin the cats, feed them to the rats, in turn feeding the rats to the ever breeding cats, etcetcetc.....

    Now if we could just get the Mexican Cat Skinners Union to donate their time, we would be good to go !

    Around here we worked out a slightly more complicated version that involves earthworms, rabbits and a catfish pond.

    Those with more room substitute pigs for the rabbits.

    As we approach a milestone an idea has popped into my furry brain. No doubt this is a reflection of the fourth Red Bull of the day but it might be worth considering.

    It would be possible to employ the Tardis to journey back in time to the beginning of the thread and create a sort of "reversed and double twisted, "Time capsule" of sorts and insert a page of posts into the beginning of the thread wherein the current denizens could "write their name on the wall" as it were and make predictions about the course of the thread. Now in the case of lowly late arriving serfs such as myself it would induce much confusion to those who might be trying to follow the course if we had posts in the thread that pre-dated our membership in GT in general. The predictions would also be so eerily accurate that it might induce a sense (very deserved anyway) of awe at the powers of the organization. Those of lesser or short and weak caliber minds would be no doubt amazed.

    Wow.

    The Dungeon is absolutely full of brew at this point.

    I think we poped a leak somewhere.

    WE ARE THERE!

    Anticipatory raucous inebriated debauched revelry can conclude. Celebratory RIDR may now commence.

    Fun as it would be, using TARDIS to re-write history is not permitted. Part of the deal with the Time Lords, along with no profit making activities, enhancement of collections, etc.
    We can go back in time & play with the toys, but they must stay in their respective time-space areas. And we must be careful not to change history as it stands, lest we eliminate ourselves from the mix, which would in turn, alter history. A sad Catch-22 if you will.

    did Eng.151515 mention something about the Dungeon being awash in "N"Sweat Lager ??

    The SUPPOSED accidental libation overflow problem in the Dungeon production area is actually a clever plot to keep the 10-Ringers mellow during the transition from the end of the millionth hit blowout until the start of the Mayan calendar end of the world party.

    I am mildly surprised they were that easily misled.

    Thanks to the Pee-ons who Sucked Up the leaked libations! The effort was dually noted! :whistling:
    Due to the recent SUPPOSED accidental libation overflow problem in the Dungeon production area, the 10-Ringers had a slight proplem with overflow cleanup on Isle 5, this resulted to several restroom trips by the 10-Ringers...This test of the recycling facilities prior to the start of the Mayan calendar end of the world party, has proved satsisfactory given the shear volume deposited in the recyling rooms!

    SPECIAL ADMINISTRATIVE NOTICE

    The Dungeon peons will soon be making the libation transition FROM the millionth hit blowout TO the Mayan calendar end of the world celebration. This transition will require that, for a fifteen minute period, libation delivery service time will increase from the standard three seconds to an admittedly substandard 4.8 seconds. While we LSMPS(BBB)DPs regret this inconvenience, the maintenance of the sterling Lagoon party reputation makes this delay necessary.

    We appreciate your understanding.

    Nobody can prove you were NOT the millionth viewer!

    You just got first dibs; that counts for SOMETHING!

    I counsel restraint in padding post count. Generating THAT level of activity is more the style of the common-rabble-9-and-40 crowd.

    I mean, I've always been opposed to padding post counts.

    Your steadfast opposition to this practice is noted.

    On a different subject: the transition between partying blowout themes was accomplished with less than expected hassle. The libation service lag was held to 4.5 seconds at its longest, well under that deplorable 4.8 seconds we had projected.
