Well if we're going to go that far then might I suggest food? Especially desserts, candy and snack foods, you know "Caramel Member", "Bubble Gum Member", "Chocolate Covered Pretzel Member" (I call dibs on that one), "Eclair Member", etc. Then we can all have arguments over which member is the saltiest or has the creamiest center.

I'd definitely have to be a bitter food.

Something like 'two day old coffee dregs'.

Or if we're going for gemstones, 'jaded'.

The best way to move up around here is to have something personal on the mods to blackmail them with :)
Whatever you do, don't pick on Ringo!
Its OK to pick on Grunt and bermuda though. They are just puppets of, The New World Order.
Oh I almost forgot; Buy a new kit every few weeks and post about it and you will be golden. Hi Bo :)

I think there should be something else when you get to 10,000. It just seems that way.

One or two confirmed tragic members are about to tip the 15,000 post mark. Sad :(
Three of us, if you add Pollyanna's 10k. Not sad in the least. There will come a time when almost all human interactions will be brain-to-brain, bypassing physical interaction. We are part of the future! :)

I used to have a special status. It was called the 'MFB Award'. It was quite fantastic. Now I just have to be normal with the likes of you ;-).

Does membership to PLEWFLADC still earn double reward points?

That will be only three of us in the world then = very cool! Do I move up from thinly veiled to marginally opaque?

I did elude to your dual account tally earlier. Actually, if I add my Guru Drums posts, I've already fallen into the precipice :(

& yes, we are the future Grea. Pity we'll be in a box before the future arrives eh!

Haha yeah, I'm not sure how that happened. Sheer persistence seems to be the key. Just noting that you're getting close to to the 10k club. We should have a compilation "the wit and wisdom of PFOG" page to commemorate it :)

We're the pioneers, Andy. It's a dirty job but someone has to do it!

Sleepless nights, utter dedication of a cause, faith and admiration, a little determination, some hard work and creativity has earned me my ranking title :)

Oh Jules, correction: "The Gentleman" had his title changed to "Rebel"... that must be the Renegade influence of this forum, lol.

It is not who's lying in the box, it is the legacy they left for us to appreciate, may the future take the time to come.

Hahahaha - sad, I know :( I was rehearsing last night so got my fix that way :)

Up early to pack for the Guru sessions recording over the next couple of days, so you'll have a nice break from me until Friday.
