Ok, I got to 1000 posts and didn't make a big deal about it.

Then I reached Bad PhD and still didn't make a big deal about it.

But now I've passed the Kilopi limit. I wasn't going to make a big deal about that either, but for those of you still reaching for the K-L, its pretty cool! Its like a BABB right of passage.

Maybe BA needs a new category - after Bad PhD you become a Bad Kilopi. Or maybe Bad Grapes would be better, but I suppose people would wine about that. Ok, I'd better put a cork in this before you start to champaign about merlot bad dgruss puns! :D

congrats. I don't think I'll ever make it. I'm the wanna be kilopi club. I like reading more than posting, so I don't expect it. anyways, this is about you, so good job, I assume you will continue, or start a new name?

edit. it seems you've already passed it, or else I don't know pi.

I apologize, I live under a rock, and I do not know what the "Kilopi limit" is.

Pi, 3.1415.... times 1000 (kilo) = 3141 postings. For reasons lost in the mists of time, this has become a milestone on BABB. Some users stop posting at this limit and switch to a new user name, others plow ahead.

I did a google image search on "kilo pie" and came up with this (http://www.greek-recipe.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article107), a Greek cheese pie recipe made with a kilo of feta. Yummy. :D

Ah. That makes a not terribly unreasonable amount of sense. I was confused because I understood it to be pronounced "kiloppy."

:lol: I thought the same thing when I first came here. I thought the user with that name was a Russian fellow. I used to work with a Russian named Klipov. #-o

Me three. Although I thought it sounded more like "ki-LOP-ee." Wait, is that what you mean? I pronounced *your* "kiloppy" as "KI-lo-pee." We could drive ourselves crazy here! Or at least I could. :lol:

Lycus (http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=393977#393977) is the man. Here is his last post. It's easier to go by his signature, then his profile. :D

I always pronounced it "kill-opee" until I finally read what it meant. I've been wondering the same thing about dgruss too... :D

Its D.G. Russ 23 - although I've been told by some that they were reading it as "drugs" - probably seems a natural fit for someone talking about intrinsic redshifts. :lol:

I want to thank Lycus for posting my mug shot on the BABB album. In case there is any uncertainty, I'm the one on the left.

How come you were the only one that got a kiss?

I ask myself that every time I look at my beautiful wife (and she is if I can brag for a moment). Very glad I'm not the one on the right! :)

It's the name of an asteroid, 3142 Kilopi (http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=34889&highlight=kilopi#34889). (hey, if we couldn't search those old threads, I wouldn't be able to do that)
