It's like a black hole. It sucks, and nothing useful comes out of it.
I predict that I will be the one with the last word.....
If your prediction comes true, and my prediction comes true, then you will forever be known as that guy who destroyed the internet.
Are you willing to assume such responsibility?
I predict that you will be proven to be someone that can't predict very well.
I predict that you all will get owned by others claiming to have the last post, fact unless the topic is locked then nobody gets last post =]
Actually, it took me a lot more that 3 weeks
Ah, but how do you define staying power?
Posting here longer than I have
Then I'll just have to wait only a year after you stopped posting....
Quite a long while I'd say.
You got a lot more credibility than the kids that have a join date of 2010 that think they'll be here longer than me.
Thinking that would be very un-wise...
Hey, if you are still here in a couple of years, props to you. It's just that I've seen a lot of people come for a few months, claim they'll outlast us all, and then never be heard from again. The test of time is the only test that really counts.
In addition to being a metalhead, I am also a homebrewer. A year ago, I brewed a stout that had neapolitan ice cream flavors (chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry), which won a gold medal last May. A local liquor store combined with a local brewery combined forces to convert my 5 gallon recipe into a 16.5 hectoliter batch a few weeks ago, and as of this morning it is on the store shelves.
Here's a few pics of the process and final product:

Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.'"
