We're off again, with release 24 / 42 / 2.2.2.2 of the serial winners thread!

Just for the record, current winners are:
15: SandJ
14: Geoffrey Yeung
13: SandJ
12: zzuupp
11: mikey
10: zzuupp
9: Odd-Rod
8: mikey
7: BladeD
6: Odd-Rod
5: Tapio
4: BladeD
3: rroonnaalldd
2: Dune Finkleberry
1: Bruce

Welcome to round sixteen of this popular pastime!

The normal rules:

• Post in this thread, anything with legible words.
• Stay within the message board rules.
• Empty posts are invalid towards winning.
• You must wait for someone else to post before you can post again, any and all multiple posts are invalid towards winning.
• The thread starter — me — cannot win.
• Have FUN!

The abnormal rules:

• Not every vehicle in the game has smoke launchers.
• Non-standard anomalous inconsistencies will not be managed unlike unusual exceptions.
• Every tenth cheer, the widget-handler must change his or her socks.
• All posts must be made using colours based on the use or absence of cyan, magenta or yellow pixels.
• No abnormal rules are optional, except this one.

NB: Schrödinger's Rule on Rules applies: "rules subject to change at moderator's discretion without notice" meaning all potential rules simultaneously do and do not exist and you won't find out which until you try to test one. Or, don't entangle with a moderator, especially when it is a cat.

The winner will be the last person that posted prior to a specific time or incident that I may or may not be already thinking about, so unknown random arbitrariness applies. Then, the last person to have posted will be declared Winner 16 and entitled to put that under Achievements on their LinkedIn profile.

Let us begin the quantum uncertainty…

Ptah! Bah! Splutter! Ptooey!

If it wasn't for us wage slaves going out to work and paying taxes , you indolent coffin-dodgers wouldn't be able to spend all day lounging about in idle luxury !

Get off that PC and back out on the street, bashing school children with your stick , using your shopping trolley to push in at bus queues and moaning about "When I were a lad" and "Ooh, have you seen the price of fish?" like you're supposed to !

The last time I retired, I got all four. With balancing and mounting, it cost a fortune. I don't have to worry about having time off.

And actually some of us live quite comfortably off of our investments and not off any 'company retirement'. Did my old work make it possible ABSOLUTELY, do they still pay me or have anything to do with me, NO they do not. I am on my own to sink or swim, and right now I am surfing just fine thanks!

Sounds like you're definitely winning! Good on you. :-)



LOOK OUT! There's a huge sea snake behind you!

Actually my financial adviser says I can take even more money out next year, per month, and still make more then enough to cover it. Unfortunately that will cover my sons school loans and not more crunching though. My goal is for my 'nest egg' to grow while still taking out enough to live like I want to, so far it's working!! I am spread out into 24 different funds, so if one goes up hopefully the next one will go up more then enough to cover it, and when most of them go up I am rolling in 'on paper' money!!

Welcome back guys, it was getting lonely in here!
Is everyone all warmed back up again now? My temps are 3 times what they were the other day and it is still only 25 degrees F at 7am!

269*3 = 807

807K ~ 993F

I stayed indoors!!
I live about 25 miles South of Washington DC in the US. Right now it is 32F with some freezing rain still falling, but another few degrees and it should turn to all rain for the rest of today and tomorrow.
