It appears that BAUT post two million will occur before the Mayan apocalypse after all.

This particular post is numbered TBD1996926

Add any appropriate statistic you care to indulge us with.

Post one million, June 2007:
When did Hawaii tussle with Mexico?

Two things.

I sure hope I post the two millionth post (the accolades, the status) and

statistically speaking, more people would rather consume scrambled eggs than eggs over easy.

Eating country-rock bands (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eggs_over_Easy) is not socially acceptable, generally. Then again, Scrambled Eggs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrambled_Eggs_%28band%29) seems to be a Lebanese band, presumably equally socially unacceptable to consume, even statistically speaking.

pray tell, short of clicking on every post to see what number it is, how does one go about finding out which post corresponds to any given post number?

Click on a link to a random post, then edit the link in the address line.

Now you're just wasting post counts! :)

I just wondered whether deleted posts count, and deleted spam.....do they?

All posts that have existed at some time have had a number assigned, deleted post numbers aren't reused.

It's entirely possible that post number 2 million will be spam.

Every post gets a number, and the count increments

Is there a prize?

Or better yet, suspend everyone at 1,999,998 and force Phil P. and Fraser post a couple of times. "Speech!" :)

Or better yet, suspend everyone [snip!]

Great start for any cunning plan. :D

It also might be hidden to general viewing. Every Report (as in a Reported post) generates a post in moderator-land, which is an entire private forum area with lots of posts in it. It is quite possible it could be one of those.

Will there be a forum name change at:

3,141,592,654?

No, but we'll all be members of the Order of GigaPi.

It'll probably take a couple thousand years to get there, however.

So long as people ignore this post and don't change their posting behaviour, I think the 2 millionth post will be made around 10:21 UTC on the 20th of March.

I predict it will be this post:


What is the smallest number not ending in zero that is the product of three distinct primes?42

Which can then be edited retroactively to fit:)

Wow! I'm speechless and I have egg on my face. How weird is that? :)

That would be a travesty, surely.

Does the post count include the posts deleted by Phil at the BABB before the merger?

Regarding my prediction above, apparently Flat Handle made the 2,000,000th post some quite a bit earlier than I expected. But the rate of posting was influenced by this countdown thread (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php/129664-The-Counddown-to-post-2-000-000-thread). Had it not been for the posts in that thread, the 2,000,000th post would have been made by Jokergirl at 9:08 UTC, here (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php/129657-NSA-Death-Star-Fully-Operational-Soon.?p=2000091#post2000091).

Oh well, I didn't foresee a countdown, but that's a "change in posting behaviour". (Though I'm pretty sure the OP and the posters in that thread were unaware of my post above).

Oh yeah, the recent post count as a fucntion of date/time:

All hail, Joker Girl. She is most worthy.
