22,701 Posts

For no particular reason, I just took a look at how many posts everyone has. Cute Fuzzy Bunny and W2R both have 22,701 right now. Just some interesting facts about this number. No, I'm not into numerology, but just think it's curious. I blame this on my current Stephen King reading jag. Just finishing up The Stand as we speak.

22701 is the zip code for Culpeper, Virginia. The place DH and I said we were going to live in retirement but haven't moved to so far. Still might though.

22,701 days = 62 years. The age you can get social security.

22,701 minutes = 378 hours = 16 days. If an average post takes one minute, it would take 16 days of non stop posting to get to 22,701.

BTW, the honor for most mosts goes to REWahoo with 27,053. Runner up is Nords with 25,712.

Man, that's a lot of posts. Maybe we need a category above "Give me a museum and I'll fill it. (Picasso)"

That is indeed a lot of posts. I think I post a lot and I'm nothing comparatively speaking.

I do? Wow! I had no idea.

Mods and admins post a lot in discussing (behind the scenes) whether a post violates the Community Rules or not, in the process of coming to a consensus. So, most of us have a high post count.

My post count tells me I probably talk too much...seems like 2000 took forever, not sure how I got to my current count.

We all know that those guys have way too much time on their hands. Probably way too much money invested also. So there's that...

Great. I recall seeing that in the 50's. Ya gotta love seeing Ralph stew for 35 seconds. It almost looks like the left side of his face is turning into a pork chop...

Well, whaddya expect when we get paid by the post?

I have thousands of posts on other boards besides this one, so the count has become somewhat irrelevant. You know, kinda like the content.
