...after a four-day hiatus, and spending a little time catching up.

OK. I've got 1400 posts. Let's say two minutes each. 2X1400=2800 minutes.
I probably spend ten times as much time reading, as responding.
So, 28000 minutes. 28000 minutes didvided by 60 minutes = 466 hours divided by 24 hours = 19.44 days, call it 20.
Before POTUS, I never posted or read much, (ya know, name my puppy threads, FF problems, I just got a CDX, football etc.)
Just quesstimating now, that 75% of my activity has been POTUS, that means in the last three years, (since POTUS) I've lost fifteen days of my life I won't get back....

...and some have lost a lot more.

Yet, nothing has changed, the least anyone's mind.

Perhaps, B. Russell said it best;


“The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”

What's your fetish with me?
I'm staying out of most of these worthless threads, only to see my name drug into them.

I would ask that you limit your use of my name, when I'm not involved. It makes it look like you miss me, or something more perverse.

And what is that "bwahahaha" stuff? Is that the sound of a redneck orgasm?:(

With that attitude, you would fit in much better on the main forum where you can look down on everyone who doesn't fit the RTF mold. Heaven forbid someone doesn't run dog games! What's your beef with it? Is my dog less than yours? Oh, I know...I am inferior to you, right?

How come you don't do the math for Yardley??

5,800 + posts at an average of 5 paragraphs per post.

To his credit, he may well have changed some minds..........to the opposite of his points!!:D

Nice to see that Duck has a little Duckling spokesman!

Not that it matters a hoot, but when I say something that supports another, I get chastised and called "little so-an-so".

Whats good for the goose, is good for the little duckling!

ps....I must add, that is the first post I recall where you actually said something, and not just name-called or insulted! Your threrapist has my regards! :D

While I don't always agree with Jeff, he is by far the most articulate, well-supported poster on this forum, so I take that as a complement. I've seen just about every RWE argument (if you want to call them that) turned inside out by Jeff, far better than I could. Its nice to sit back and watch him dismember all your false ideologic fallacies. I respectfully disagree with much of the athiest position, but we're allowed our differences, last time I checked.

Also, the bigger I get, the more I appreciate being called "Lil" anything!

This thread prompted me to go look at my post count/PPD average. 1200 posts in 7 years, average .44 per day.
http://i490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/MouseOnAFeedsack/LIARkin/awHowSad.gifOh no! That puts me in last place. Got some catching up to do. Or maybe I'll never catch up, coz one simply has to be more verbose on certain issues, you know, like

The thread wasn't about post counts, Julie. It was about enjoying wasting time. Ducknwork brought up the post count issue, and I accomodated him.
As far as wasting time, all who post here are equals, post counts not withstanding.

Really? You must not have read the post that this guy made. (It's the first post in this thread, just in case you didn't notice. Glad to help where I can!;)

OK. I've got 1400 posts. Let's say two minutes each. 2X1400=2800 minutes.
I probably spend ten times as much time reading, as responding.
So, 28000 minutes. 28000 minutes didvided by 60 minutes = 466 hours divided by 24 hours = 19.44 days, call it 20.
Before POTUS, I never posted or read much, (ya know, name my puppy threads, FF problems, I just got a CDX, football etc.)
Just quesstimating now, that 75% of my activity has been POTUS, that means in the last three years, (since POTUS) I've lost fifteen days of my life I won't get back....

...and some have lost a lot more.
Yet, nothing has changed, the least anyone's mind.

Perhaps, B. Russell said it best;


“The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”

I believe I've refined being shiftless and idle, including wasting time, to an art form ;) so therefore it was distressing to discover that by your yardstick I'm in last place. But thanks for calling me the equal of you, dippity-do, dnf and more! http://i490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/MouseOnAFeedsack/Smilies/SARCASM.gif

I'll try to explain. My OP was merely a comment that I thought I spent to much time on POTUS, and that maybe that time was wasted, but what the he!!, I enjoy it.

He is without question the biggest ideologue on this board.

If someone asked will the sun come up tomorrow, he could spin 5 paragraphs telling you why the moon is white.
I could answer yes.

You would swoon over his "fact based well thought out" post that meandered off topic and be confused by my "yes.":D

That's assuming you answer "yes". We've been hearing "the sky is falling" for 18 months now, so to fit your agenda, your answer would probably be "no", for which I would have to agree with the more correct, albiet verbose, Yardley. :D

But in case you're the correct one, I would suggest we sip a fine, aged bourbon and celebrate the good times as frequently as possible.

You're losing it. Are you saying there's been no talk of how Obama is destroying America? No "we live in Cuba" comments? Get real.
"We" is anyone who's been reading POTUS since January 2009.

I won't be surprised if you fail to answer.

But at least answer this: what do you mean by "traveller?" I know the reference, but I'd like to hear your idea of it, and how I fit the description.
