Yep, in case you haven't heard: The Sun tisn't yellow.



This has been a community unsponsered message.








What did you expect for a 10k post from me? I thought I'd never catch Candy. I think I had more posts than ToSeek at one time, but I soon ate his dust. In fact, he is so far ahead in posts that I have to ask: has anyone seen him?

Congrats George and very appropriate. And yes, ToSeek is around, both in mod land and recently in Space Exploration.

Congratulations on your 10K-th post! Just remember the words of Bob Dylan:

The Sun's not yellow, it's chicken! ;)

You're the man! (sorry, perhaps a bit cryptic)

Congrats George and very appropriate. And yes, ToSeek is around, both in mod land and recently in Space Exploration. Thanks. I see you're in 30k-ville! Would you have ever guessed?

[Added: BTW, not seeing a high post generator was my vain attempt at a malaprop. So is the other obscure one in my signature. I'll keep practicing; I like baseball.]


Ten grand posts, wow. :) Yeah. Staying with one name helps. *razz* I'll probably stick with this name (but may someday reveal my real name).

Coincidentally, the binary version of 10k represents the total number of my sweet posts of efficacy.


That is a stellar record I think I'm getting more mellow with post counts. But don't call me mellow yellow. ;)


Congratulations on your 10K-th post! Just remember the words of Bob Dylan:

The Sun's not yellow, it's chicken! ETs are well aware of the Sun's color, so this makes sense. Musical talent increases with each light year traveled, too.


You're the man! (sorry, perhaps a bit cryptic) Hmmm. No surprise; y'all are still smarter than me. Sun.. son.. man??

[Too bad you can't lock #10,000 to that post. [Before leaving the thread, I noticed I had a 10,001 for the prior post count, but the original OP still showed 10,000.]

No, it just happens that "man (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/10000_%28number%29#Name)" means 10,000 in Japanese.

Spoken with a Jamaican accent, no doubt ...

Yes, of course, or a Spanish accent. Or just about any other language than the one we happen to be speaking!

Well, "sen" is right. So I would say you are not a sinner but rather a sen-sible man.

Well, "sen" is right. So I would say you are not a sinner but rather a sen-sible man. That would be sen-sational, if true, but at least not a man of such background. Perhaps my sen count, however, should have been stated as only 10.

It sure could be worse.
