    Default Dedicated to Graham

    This post is dedicated to my friend Graham.

    You guys might not appreciate the amount of self control our friend from Tokyo he has shown these last few days. Must have just been eating him up inside. Or maybe... just maybe, he doesn't care any more. Sniff.

    So Graham, my hat is off to you (not that I ever wore one, you understand). I REALLY didn't think you had this kind of self control in you, buddy! - and I would have missed the big moment myself if somebody handn't, just moments ago, brought it up in the "cost of SLS and scouting" thread. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Graham. This post is to you. (I hope we actually get to clink beer glasses together in person one of these days!) *thud*

    Good night.

    Well, gosh. I'm blushing here, man. Thanks.

    Self control? Me? I'll have to tell the wife that, she'll love it..

    Do I still care? You bet! Just been kinda busy lately (work, grumble grumble..)

    Mmm, beer, yeah.. I reckon I should try and visit Sepponia next year. What's a good time of year?

    OK, enough of the warm and fuzzies. I was mostly feeling really good about my relationship with Graham because he just sent me tons of money. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    This is the kind of celebration I like. Quick, to the point, then everybody goes home. (But just wait until you see what HE gets in the mail in a couple of days!)

    Back to the boards...

    Say... that's not a bad idea.

    There are already two EV1's that are officially unaccounted for. What's one more?

    By GM's accounting, that would have added $245,000 to the production cost of the vehicle - or roughly what they're telling us a replacement battery pack would cost. Not.

    Gents,

    I'm sorry but I will kindly have to ask you to move these off topic comments to an appropriate thread! I don't see how GM's ineptitude relates to a dedication to Graham! And Darell, you should know better! It may be that through the free association of thought, discussions may lead out on tangents but for Graham's sake, a tangent goes on forever. Oh dang! Now I'm getting off your off topic. Shucks, I'd be inclined to self moderate but I'm already too busy................ [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

    I'm just posting because I can, and it won't be off topic, because the topic is me, so I can't be off topic, because I am me.

    Everybody with me now?

    Hey!!

    I just noticed, Saaby isn't a flashaholic, he's an 'Assistant'

    What's with that? Or does everyone already know, and I'm just slow? Well, ok, I'm slow, but tell me anyway..

    As Shirley, I jested.
    Then I was Frank.
    Now I'm confused and you have me frightened!

    Can Graham really say whatever he wants? And how do we know it's Graham? It may be a trick Holograham with the real one elsewhere, no matter where he goes! Come to think of it, I have to go 2 too.

    BTW, thanks for the complaint line. Will it be handled by the thread fuzz? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Yeah, poor Saaby. The demotion was not his choice. He now wields the whip for Sasha.

    Be afraid.

    Gives the phrase "being whipped" a whole new meaning, doesn't it?

    Shirley you can't be serious..

    I'm no holograham - the wife assures me, if there is one thing I'm not, it's hollow.

    So Saaby is an Assistant what? And for that matter, why do our whats require assistants? Can't they do their own work?

    This is getting too wierd. I'd better go to work and waste time there..

    The package said "Assistant" inside I found this:

    I set up a real (fake) complaint line...I solemly swear that all complaints will be delivered to a real live sparking wire. I am discussing the prospects of getting this sparking wire to power a LED with the owners right now, but alas we have not reached this level yet. Please forward all complaints to

    Saaby,
    Will you accept snivels or do they have to be full blown complaints?

    Perhaps a side column: Dear Saaby?

    If Saaby can be an Assistant, can I be a Lackey? Or maybe a Faceless Minion?

    Yeah, that's the ticket. Always wanted to be a Faceless Minion..

    Graham,
    This is your thread and this is your world! Why, you can be anything you want to be! Faceless Minnion; so be it.

    That's my opinnion and I'm sticking to it.

    Dear Saaby,

    Darell dedicated a post to Graham and he's just a faceless minnion. How come? [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Dear DimBulb,
    This thread started with Darells 4000th post. Somone who has worn out that many keyboards can start a thread in which their 4000th post is contained on anything they want. Thus Darell chose to start it in dedication to Graham, who is sending him a large, undisclosed ammount of money and a T Shirt. In return Darell will spend an even larger sum of money shiping his EV 1 bolt and bushing at a time back to Graham. It's a conspiracy to take my away because Darell would really like one. (Maybe I'll loan it to him some day) But he's not going to get it because I have a super metamorphic smiley to protect it.

    Furthermore this kind of behavior scares off new members! Maybe we should resort to something relativly normal, like word assosiation.

    Have a nice evening...

    Ryan out.

    Rothrandir,

    Historically, prior to reaching a new thousand mark, Graham would typically make a comment about the fact that Darell was approaching another mile stone. There would also be discussion regarding quality/ quantity issues as well. This time however, Darell was able to approach and indeed post his next x000th post without the flak usually associated with such an event.

    And now on to something of a more serious matter.

    YC, you have forced us to become what we have become!.... at least that's my excuse. (proud creator.......... at least you haven't procreated.........)

    And Saaby, don't count on it:
