CS4K: What Next for this Foron Most Foul?

Postby Chuck_Schick » Wed Dec 08, 2004 2:50 pm

Here lies my 4,000th post. So, dubious achievement, or flat-out sad commentary? Oh sure, it's been fun and I've made friends and enemies along the way, but since I'm unlikely ever to catch Paco or Daisy, it's tempting just to slink away and let that nice, round number stand.

So whereto from here?

you could take the barry bonds approach, hit one more than babe ruth and call it a career.

You'd never be able to pull it off. At 4,000 posts, your muscle memory automatically logs you in when you fire up the PC. You don't really have much say in the matter.

Another weak-ass messageboard in this town is offering cash for posts. We're well beyond that... once you're hooked here, you can't leave.

5 months ago you were 700 behind me, and now you're only 239 behind. I said blunt would pass me on Valentines Day, but it looks like you will now. This latest election was a boon for your numbers.

If i post 4/day for 60 days that's another 240 bringing me to 4480. you post 8/day for 60 days that's another 480 bringing you to 4480. That would mean we're tied on Feb 6(Happy Birthday Bob!). 8 days before my guess last summer.

Course you don't post on weekends so you have to make up for it on weekdays, but you can do 8/day before noon if you've had your jolt of joe. I'm sure Bush will do something stupid once or twice before then and you can do a couple days worth in just one thread. I'm burning out, 4/day might be a good guess for me. So let's go, get off your ass and get out there and post! Blunt you too! I've given up on the Flanderseses.

so, where do you get paid to post?? My dream job, getting paid to bitch, whine and moan. I think a lot of forons dream job.

P4K Party in the Park! Flash mob with Insanity Sauce! This is a bar, not a lending library!

From the archives, folks, part of one the first Schicklets I ever tasted:

Next is this whole business of "free whiskey shot and rock night" which is how we were suckered into this circus trainwreck to begin with. Well, it turns out whoever the genius is who came up with the fuckin' idea to begin with has discovered it's not so lucrative after all. Well, duh. But does anyone offer the band a free shot of whiskey as a condolence for this bait and switch routine? No. In fact, the bands (well, ours anyway) pretty much just gets a lot of horseshit from the staff. We couldn't even convince them to sell us a bottle of the rail shit.So it looks like it's free Pabst taps for the band. Well, I'll never bitch about free beer, even if it is second-rate mule piss brewed by a bunch of union-busting scab fucks. But here's the thing: right before we go on we're told WE'RE BEING CUT OFF FROM THE FREE PABST!!! Okay, I realize we can put away our fair share of free booze, but a ceiling on free shit beer? Christ, take back the measly $50 you paid us, but don't tell NR we're not getting any free taps.


Keep on truckin dude!

Did I ever tell you you're my hero?


Yes, you're the wind beneath my wings.

Well, I wasn't going to say anything, but since you brought it up...

http://www.madison.com/post/forum

Every week we publish in print the best excerpts from our forums and blogs (hey, anybody want a blog?)

If we use your posting, we send you fifty bucks.

Should be easy pickings for you veteran forons.

seems like a pretty shallow effort to attract posters.
But then, fifty bucks is fifty bucks, I guess....
If the nasty forons that nobody likes can go over there in an attempt to garner fame and fortune, the rest of us will just stay here and enjoy.

Keep on truckin'!

I remember that not long after I started reading this forum you posted on "Schick2K" and that was not even a year ago.
