Post no 1000!!!
That's 20 trophey points, I thank you!
Edit: don't know why they've not incremented?
Congratulations : ) - the trophy will follow, I think it's a batch process that runs in the background.
btw, I wouldn't have pegged you for a metric chap : )
I'm not, but I didn't fancy waiting for the 2240th post (call it cherry-picking ).
Points have caught up now. That means I've trumped your likes by weight of numbers
I meant Tonne versus Ton
Perhaps he could not find the words to laud such a feat.
Sigh... 1 ton = 2240 lbs (Imperial)
Ah, yes, that would be a few posts then!
Congratulations on your "kilo-post" (Even though I can remember polar bears and transparent mints, along with Marathons, Opel Fruits, Pacers and Sherbert Pips congealed together in a paper bag, stuck to the inside of your pocket and coated in pocket fluff - I'm afraid that for me 'Imperial' is just a prefix for another kind of mint!!! )
But have you still got your anorak?
It was the 'snorkel' for me - huge, blue, fur lined hood and a death trap because you couldn't see anything out of it when crossing the road!!! (Darwin calls that natural selection - we need more of that nowadays rather than all this dayglo jacket clipboard wielding namby pamby bubble wrap yourself can't step out yer front door without a bloody risk assessment yah de yah....) - sorry BH I'm not gonna dampen your celebratory thread any more - I'm off back into my box...nurse? Where's my medication? What are those straps for? Who made that jacket? The arms are clearly too long!!
I always preferred my duffle. Still got one, rotting away in a cupboard somewhere, warm, fur-lined... and little hope it still fits.
83 counting down!
...until I lose my points crown
Better stop encouraging me to post here then
I'm not a Canute*, it will happen some time, post away!
* yes, I know the facts are not the same as the popular perception
Black Hole are you going to try and get the 10,000th post???? There's only 138 to go....
