If it's a choice between prunes and Metamucil, I go with the Metamucil every time. Just something to ponder as you age.

This is good as long as there are no dunce caps and three legged stools. :smile:

Congrats Hal! I remember the first thread I ever started was a thread about this White Sox Article that was on the homepage and some comments I had about it. I forgot that the homepage and the forums were related. :redface:
So I complemented the article and then realized that the forums and homepage were all part of the same site. Oh, and Hal wrote the article. !!

A greasy joint with bad food, slow service, state coffee and disgruntled employees.

Just don't piss off the security guard that's sitting in the back reading yesterday's paper and drinking the stale coffee. :wink:

I took Daver to a Jackhammers game a couple of years ago when Jeff couldn't use his ticket. I can say this much for him: At least he stood in front of me when put the arrow through my shoulder and said, "You know if I really wanted to, I would have killed you." You've gotta respect a guy like that!

just curious, what does it take to become a moderator? 7000 posts?

Post count has nothing to do with it.

It has to do with the way you carry yourself on the boards, how much you contribute to the site in terms of content (and financial contributions certainly don't hurt your chances - because they prove you actually care about seeing the place continue). How well you treat other posters and follow the rules.
