My 5,000th Post

Since Oct 2003 I've made 4,999 posts or 1.88/day. The next one would be #5,000. But, I don't have anything to say.

So, this is your opportunity to make my 5,000th post for me. The best Dex-like content and style* wins.

*?

Stocks are on a downward trend . The bollinger bands are stretched to capacity and will not bounce back until order is restored to networks . America is sinking lower and lower . We now have a presidential candidate with a cheating husband and a reality show . The Jersey Shore crowd ( the stench of America ) are rising in the poles and more spin offs are coming . There are riots in Egypt , China is going under and who knows what is happening in Russia . Your money is not safe . Cash out and move to fly over country. Higher taxes are coming and we will soon have an ask don't tell policy for our president . Act quickly !

You blew it Dex. If you comment on this or any other thread your 5000th will be lost in the noise. You need to start a new thread so you can preserve that 5000th at the top. So, were you just trying to generate some excitement leading up to the real thing?

If we just keep giving stupid responses, he can never post again!

(j/k - of course we want you to post dex - I just can't come up with anything witty at the moment, or maybe ever).
