Wouldn't surprise me. They say 60 is the new 40.<quoted text>I bet you can't believe how much I've learned in four short years.
Compliment accepted, thanks.
Bring it on;>)
That's why this silly little thread survives. Not even with regulars missing for months-to-years at a time... it does provide the CONTEXT & CONTUNITY. Played out against THE most volatile, dangerous and thus EXCITING region of the world, the Holy Land, no less!
(Incientally, Facebook can never replace the "old-school" internet, while there is a downside to the whole "anonymity" thing.... on the other hand, because people are too self-conscious and self-censoring on FB (not to mention, self-obsessed!). It's just not the same.
Look at this thread. Its TOPICALITY & urgency hasn't decreased one-iota; if anything the tension, drama & stakes have GONE UP dramatically since 2009!
Proof in the pudding: we all changed here: some more than others; but also all stayed the same in several meaninful ways.
If you're gonna waste some guilty-pleasure time, this thread is as good a place as any.
And really, I don't get all the whiners about "why can't this thread die already!". What purpose does a statement like that make? Or is it just to get attention? If people don't like it, they can leave for a year+ like myself, or permanently like Gray's sanity.
Afterall, here in Jewmerica, it's all about freedom, baby!
