Just what exactly are you saying?? That I talk too much?? That I can't shut up??

(In your graft* making, did you take into account the posts from the StarBlvd archives that aren't really mine?)


* When I was in school, I had a summer job working as a temp. At one of the offices (it was a blue jeans manufacturer), my job was to "make grafts of each worker to show their productivity". It took me ages to understand what I was supposed to do.


Grafts? I'm afraid I don't know what those are.
"You know. Line grafts."
Line Grafts? (am I at a tree farm???)


Finally, the guy drew a graft for me.... Yikes...

Random thought process: TV listings magazine --> Zena Warrior Princess --> Lucy Lawless --> Lawless in Lotusland

Having remembered the name "Lawless in Lotusland" and wondered how long it has been since he/she posted here so I looked at the Memberlist because some forums show the date of the last post of each member. Then I saw the total number of posts and wondered "How sociable I am compared to the other members?" Not very, it turns out. I can amuse myself for hours playing with numbers. For example, a Pareto Analysis shows that 5 people are responsible for 80% of all posts and the top 3 posters made more posts than everyone else put together.

Next week: David's wasted life explained by Venn diagrams.


EDIT: What the? The number "eighty" is considered so offensive that it must be changed into 80?

Hmmmm, must I put a note to check the "Disable Smilies in this post" box if using 8 and 0 side by side? (Or I suppose that I could go ferreting around in the inner workings to remove that annoyance.)

Hmmm, which shall I do? Do I need to put up a poll to find out what others would like?

80 80 80 80 80

sorry, couldn't resist.

AND, it ups my total number of posts. I'm sad to see that I'm only a few above "others". I guess I have to talk more.

I like this forum because I can exchange ideas. I couldn't care less about the number of posts that I make.
Still, I'm determined now to "make it to the top"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ha, ha

Lawless here. I lurk from time to time. Have been busy ranting about lawlessness in various and sundry jurisdictions like Myanmar, Pakistan, the USA and Canada.

Happy new year to all those on llizard's forum.

Speaking of Lucy, someone once called me "Lucy in the sky with diamonds." I was never sure whether this was meant to be an insult.

David, you said you are fascinated by numbers; how about this number - whose postings attract the greatest "views"? Does the number of views have any relation to the subject of the post? Do some of the very high number of views just reflect Google hits of words or topics that happen to be "hot"? I expect some high quality grafts in you response!!!!!
