    I recently resurrected a 7 year old thread with no replies and it is getting some nice responses. Does that cancel out a thread I have killed?

    Tonight I will be turning water (along with some malted barley, hops and yeast) into beer. Does that count?

    That's just what I spent the weekend doing... does that count as a counter-miracle? Is it transferrable into threadkilling points?

    LOL, very clever; just randomly move some post from elsewhere on CPF to this thread and see if it kills it..

    What are you trying to pull mvyrmnd? Is this one of those sneaky tricks from down-under I've been hearing about?

    Get yourself a peice of thread, then try to kill it!


    Side Note: hopefully without a needle on it, to avoid hurting yourself.



    OK, ok JUST kidding! ....


    Btw, you guys heard about the guy that died (in his sleep I think) in Florida when a sink hole gave way directly under his bedroom? Didn't know Florida had lots of sink holes due to the ground is made up of lime rock or sometun like that!

    As far as dying goes . . . Definitely don't want to go that way. Fall asleep, but never wake up again? That's just . . . Unless it's a really old man dying naturally, that's not a good way to go.

    I want to die while sleeping, like my Grandfather did. Not screaming and crying like the other people in his car.

    We're not thread killers in here... more like thread resurrecters. I thought this thing had finally died. Maybe we should agree on the prize for the person who succesfully kills this thread so we don't have to ressurect it when that happens...

    Yeah but that would kind'ah be like a bribe No?



    PS Have you guys feard of Livestock Guardian Dogs? I'd post a cool vid of these dogs, BUT I know it'll be moved, ... bummer!

    PPS I guess I'll just cook up some frozen Shrimp fur supper!

    Btw, I did ask fur frozen Prawns, but the fish guy here in the High Plains Desert areas an Sunny Californny gave me a questionable look. Then said, "you mean frozen shrimp, right", asking "are you from Down Under by any chance"?

    I said, Down Under where?

    He said, Austrailia! They call'um Prawns there if I ain't mistaken.

    No Arizona, I guess my Hawaiian accent may've confused him. ... I donno? ...

    On the contrary, it would make the thread incredibly hard to kill; everyone would post, hoping they have the last post, until everyone forgets about the prize, justifying a prize for whoever got us to forget about the prize in the first place. The prize would justify itself just by it's mere existence! I suggest a "Thread Killer" trophy, perhaps a golden picture of a bulldog and a spool. Of course, if the winner comes back to the thread to write "I WIN", he is automatically disqualified...

    I think they call them Prawns in the U.K. as well, but I'm definitely no expert on that subject.

    Depends on how long "IT" takes to arrive, and how long "IT" takes to get the job done.

    So what's worse - 10 years waiting to die from a disease, or 30 seconds to realise you're not going to be able to get out of the way of that train?

    Depends on ones Worldview. Personally, I'd rather take the train, but being a man of faith, I'll trust God with my passing. My Father, and Father in-law, are both suffering from Dementia and/or Alzheimer's.
