Absolutely. I'm after that first spot, Robbo. 4,200 posts won't save you from falling to 2nd postition.

To see thread counts, just go to the f-9 forum page (chit-chat) and click on the "16,000" number at Thread Must Die.

And Jelena, thanks for the heads-up. Post 667!

Except when the forums misbehave and you can't click it.


Same with smilies.

Can someone please tell me what my post count and position on this thread is?

Really? You met an actual alien in Las Vegas? And you have proof of that? Why hasn't this been on the news?

Or do you mean you met the actor that plays Tuvok which would be a crushing disappointment to me.

I think the maid was an alien, she rolled her Rs and kept eyeing my valuables.

Are you kidding? Las Vegas and Reno are full of aliens!
From observing them, I have drawn several conclusions about their home planet:
A. It has a much weaker gravitational field than Earth, because they do not walk but instead ride electric scooters everywhere they go.
B. It has a significantly higher ratio of oxygen in it's atmosphere, because these interstellar tourists are always hooked up to a supplemental oxygen supply.
C. It has a much weaker and/or dimmer sun, because these aliens never set foot outside dimly-lit casinos during daylight hours, and frequently can be seen wearing dark sunglasses inside said establishments.

They sound, well not in the least bit dangerous actually.

Unless they run you over with one of those electric scooter things of course.

They're generally pretty benign, but they quickly become vicious if you try to distract them from pumping coins into slot machines. I've often wondered if they're receiving coded messages from the symbols on the reels and don't want to miss a vital bit of information. Bar-double bar-7 might mean the difference between a full-scale invasion and a slight change in dinner plans.

That's an ever-present danger in a crowded casino.

Depending on their preferred diet it could stand for both.

I just got back from tennis practice, and I see that conversation has picked up again. Or should I say, repeated itself again.
