This is just a silly idea to see how long it takes to get 25 unique members to post to a thread.

The rules:
  1. Post something random and unintelligible, like usual.
  2. Watch the thread.
  3. Profit!
You may only post once in this thread. If you post a second time it will be deleted.

Edit1: Posts that have a post count that is prime are worth more. Of what, we have no idea.
Edit2: Post counts are the number in the upper right hand corner of the post. Like this post is "#1".
Edit3: We have been told that DHL, at one time, considered 1 to be prime.

Stop the madness!

Last fiddled with by sdbardwick on 2007-08-10 at 01:50 Reason: I prefer powers of 2 over primes anyway. :pout: But I get a prime exponent.
