I can't decide whether to devote my life to the awesome count or to get a life.

I know. For a while I was like, eh, this thread is pointless, it'll take forever... but I just can't stop counting!

Sadly, few people are like that these days. Efficiency=ninjas all over the place, but that doesn't really happen anymore.

Even if we're never realistically gonna get to a million anytime soon, we can still make awesome achievements like 25,000, 50,000, or 100,000.

The thought of never actually getting to a million is sad. But yes, we can still shoot for mini-goals.

That's definitely better than I can say. The one time I ever saw part of a Star Trek episode a few years ago, I had no idea it was Star Trek. And it was on the Sci-Fi Channel.

Did you stay within the usual boundaries of math courses in high school (ex. up to Algebra II in 9th grade)? I do.

Yep. I slowly descended from an A student in 7th grade pre-algebra to a D student in 12th grade calculus.

Jumble, you just scored a mega combo breaker.

Oh, I didn't mean to scare you, boring bore. My nerdy friends did better. :lol:

Well, good morning anyway, Jumble.

And I'm still scared. I can't pick up my grades unless I stop being so darn lazy and start working (probably may never happen).

I've always battled with laziness doing schoolwork. Some of my best college papers I've written (from start to finish) within 10 hours of the class.

Yeah, I've had those times, but I sometimes tend to go a bit loopy with my thinking when I stay up for too long.

A zip code in Roanoke, Virginia.

The main belt asteroid named Pusateri.

Currently 1,123 behind the Hugs thread.

Good news, everyone! This count in the last 1.5 hours alone has caused our posts/hour to go up by about .01!

At this rate, we'll be done in about 46.268 years (total)...sigh...and early posters said they didn't want to be old by the time this was completed.

sorry about the mis-type earlier. Fleeting, on-train-to-work post. Re earlier comment, I've produced at least one proto-nerd offspring to take up the counting torch. You will have to check with Kohllial how her baby is getting on with basic nerd traits.

No one can agree how to count how many types of people there are. You could ask two people and get 10 different answers.
