...from 10,000 posts. At least, as of right now he is.

(John, this gives you an opportunity to get at least a couple of free posts in this thread alone.)

He joined here 2 years, 4 months, and 5 days before I did and I am no where NEAR 10,000 posts. I guess I need to post just over 7 posts on average a day for the next almost 2.5 years to catch up.

Maybe he'll just stop at 9,999.

Or maybe there will be a dramatic revelation.

Or maybe he'll buy an expensive tube amp.

I've always learned a lot from everyone here, and I'm grateful for the community.

I guess I should get started on my 10th Anniversary post, since 10,000 seems pretty impossible.

I think his 10,000th post will be something witty, well written, grammatically correct, and informative.

I'm expecting a treatise that seamlessly aligns the spiritual tenets of Catholicism, gun ownership, solid-state electronics, consumerism and law. In short, I've been waiting my entire life for The Answer, and I expect JohnK to deliver it.

But, you know, no pressure.

All I know for sure is that The Answer will be revealed with a classical music soundtrack.

Maybe a medley starting with Strauss's "Also Sprach Zarathustra" and transitioning into "Mars, Bringer of War" from Holst.

9999 is a nice symmetrical number. Maybe I should stop while I'm ahead.

Oh that doggone JohnK. Always posting just to stretch his post count. Never any pithy or helpful posts. Well, what can you expect from someone who attended that university up North. His sole redeeming quality, though it demonstrates his masochistic tendencies, is that he is a Cleveland Browns fan. grin

Seriously, congratulations on hitting the 10,000 post mark, John. All the best.

So what is a 'brown'?
I can understand Penguins, Chiefs, Bears, Bulls and even Bruins, but what the hell exactly is a 'brown'?

I mean, it just isn't very intimidating.
Hell, ducks CAN be intimidating.
Anyone ever come across a mallard during mating season on campus? They fly right at you!

How did they become the Browns? The Cleveland All-America Football Conference franchise conducted a fan contest in 1945 to name the team. The most popular submission was “Browns” in recognition of the team's first coach and general manager Paul Brown, who was already a popular figure in Ohio sports. Brown at first vetoed the choice and the team selected from the contest entries the name “Panthers.” However, after an area businessman informed the team that he owned the rights to the name Cleveland Panthers, from an earlier failed football team, Brown rescinded his objection and agreed to the use of his name.

I wasn't drunk but i do recall some photography guy with a camera popping the flash several times blinding me so constantly that i couldn't see and hence i staggered around like a sailor who just came back from 6 months at sea.
I can't IMAGINE who that photographer might have been.

That's MY story and i'm sticking to it.

The shine doesn't get you drunk. It simply enhances the singing & dancing center of your brain at the expense of the cognitive speech center. Good science is all about cause and effect.
