Hi Woland!

I was just thinking- since most of us have predictable positions on all of the political and religious stuff that we're not supposed to talk about anyway, why don't we just devise a simple shorthand that allows us to show up and get our two cents in without overly annoying one another?

For example, an appropriate smiley could get our position across. For this thread I would just post:

:huh:


Danny made a similar proposition a while back to number our arguments. That way we can just take position #12 and be done with it.
The notion caught on for a short time but died out. Maybe it's time to bring it back!

Yes, I agree. Also, thumbs down and thumbs up smilies would be helpful. Anyone know where to find them?

You do these things :: like any other smiley and put "thumbsup" in the middle. Not sure about thumbs down though. Let me try it:
:thumbsdown:

Hey! It worked!

Yes Bob I was yelled at for my idea. Here it is though. (To be fair it was the Canadians that had the most problems with it. Along with Jonathan LOL.)

Anyhow there is an old joke about war buddies who have been meeting weekly for decades and figured out they were telling the same jokes. They end up just numbering the jokes and calling out the numbers. Everyone laughs because they remember the numbers. Well a new guy wants to join so they tell him to go home and memorise the jokes and come back the next week. Well after about 40 minutes he deceides to try to fit in so he calls out 32. Nobody laughs. He calls out 12 and nobody laughs and he is now sort of angry. He says "guys you said I could join you and I memorised all the jokes what is wrong?" The guy who invited him simply said "Some guys can tell jokes and some can't."

So that got me to thinking that we should just number the positions.

As for smiley faces I do not find them very manly so I have NEVER used on and never will.

Hi Bob and Danny,

When I read Bob's post, above, I also immediately thought of that joke. But Danny beat me to it.

When I heard it, though, it was told about convicts in the penitentiary.

32! = 263,130,836,933,694,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

That's some list of jokes you've memorized, Bob!

(In all fairness, however, you did pick a good one, and told it well.)

This isn't the number I got. Must be a rounding thing.

Wait 'til you hear 32! + X

I can't tell you the value of X here, though, because some consider the comment rather lewd.

Pssht. You told it all wrong. It's a round table of Borscht Belt comedians, and the numbers are 24 and 67.
