Is 5001 a post-doc? Where is PI or tenured faculty?

Go ToSeek!

I believe it is your fate to be here. It is your destiny. I believe these posts hold for each and everyone of you (in case your schizophrenic) the very meaning of your lives.

I too am approaching a countdown. I'm just over a hundred from crossing the kilopi threshold.

ToSeek
2003-Nov-19, 10:37 PM
That's a lot of responses in the first ten minutes!

Yeah, Glom, I see you moving on up there. I thought TSC was going to be the second to break the kilopi barrier, but he doesn't seem to be upholding the honor of Canada.

Glom
2003-Nov-19, 10:46 PM
It's going to be close.

ToSeek
2003-Nov-19, 10:57 PM
So will the first non-American to break the barrier be a Brit or a Canadian? ;)

Nah, its being engaged. I have to actually spend time with her and can't be on here as much. Dang women.

Making good progress: 34 posts in 24 hours. (Humphrey's record is 80+, though). My goal is to achieve Bad Post-Doc around the end of the year, at the same time I claim victory in the PlanetNancy Backpedal Date Pool (http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=6711).

Not to dampen anyone's fun (but in fact, specifically to dampen everyone's fun), but I am not a big fan on post count padding. It eats up space, both on the disk and in the forum. This was one of the reasons I almost didn't use ranks when I set up the board. It creates an artificial goal line.

I'd like to thank the Academy....

No, seriously, I'd like to thank those who, like JayUtah, Grapes/kilopi/milli360, and many others, who have taught me so much about astronomy, the moon missions, and about rational argument. Then there are the Humphreys and Gloms, whose entertaining posts while not usually as erudite are always fun to read. Thanks as well to everyone else who helps make this board fascinating, educational, fun, welcoming, and comfortable. Lastly, a huge thank you to the Bad Astronomer himself, for establishing this fortress of sanity in a crazy world, defending it against all comers, welcoming and hosting us here, and making it such a splendid place to spend way too much time in.

Thanks to you all, and I look forward to many more posts here.
