I just broke it, but there were EXACTLY 80,000 posts on page 2000!

after this posts, there will be 80,001. I feel bad, but I need to point out the double epic milestone-ness.

EDIT: fuck, i broke it again. page 2001. welcome to the millenium, i guess.

Random Thought.
The men of the day believed in a better future.

Freedom from fear? Are they selling Drones at Radio Shack?
Are are all collaterale damage, waiting for a place to happen?

Freedom from want? Nice idea. Very social.

Freedom of Speach? The electronic voice never tires. Sound bites, everywhere.
(I was reading. The Selfish Gene. Virus of the mind.)

Freedom to Worship? Or, not. Public Space. The Cultural Church?

2000 more pages of nothing much, in the morgue? No problem.

Because sunshine conjures up happy feelings, and snowstorms don't.

They could do so much with amazing northern lights though. I know it's still unbelievable, but localised amazing clear weather is more believable than sunshine.

Surprisingly little fanfare for the epic 80,000 GET, considering this is the Screechings thread.
In light of the impermanence and absurdity of existence, I surmise that nothing is better for us than to rejoice and to do good in our lives, and that everyone should eat and drink and enjoy the good of his/her labor. Such enjoyment is a gift from God.

Yep. I was indeed talking about the one narrated by Burl Ives. The only christmas movies my family usually watches are Rudolf, It's A Wonderful Life and Charlie Brown Christmas, and of those only Rudolf took place at the North Pole. I don't think I've seen any Christmas movies made after 1980. Wait, no! I did see Polar Express. Were they going to the North Pole? I don't remember, but I think it was dark the whole time they were in wherever they were. Maybe?

The polar express was dark from what I remember, though I think it was supposed to happen at night anyway.

I revise my previous statement from all to most, and sunny to normal day/night cycles.

Well, it was nice to hear em make up after so much profanity. It warms the heart. It was hands down better than "Bitch gotta learn". The joys of final southern holiday season.

I know he was the longest serving presenter of any TV program ever, worldwide. I'm not sure if there are others who did multiple programs though. Bruce Forsyth started presenting in 1958, I think, so if he keeps going for another couple of years that'd be longer, but he started on ITV, not BBC. Who else might be in competition?

Yes. The individual persons are important. Some of the talent has been such a gift. Yes. A gift. From the people of England to all of the English speaking world.
