Default Hey, do I win a special prize?

I just noticed that my "like" count is higher than my "post" count.
Do I win a special prize for that?
Or is the "like" count an indication of the exceptionally low standards that some folks have around here?


My 7th Grade English teacher told me that I'd never amount to anything. That was a lot of pressure to put on a 12 year old kid, but it gave me a goal in life, and I thought I nailed it.
Then 1,000 people come along and "like" me.
It's a lot if work to amount to nothing!

I wonder if I'll ever get to 5 million like Sip did.

Thanks all.
I love this place.

It's not a thousand different people, it's about twenty, and just one has liked you over 900 times. Kinda creepy, innit?

If they installed one of those, it would probably get used so much that it would overload the main circuit board and crash the whole forum.

Hate is a harsh word. How about 'Dislikes'?

There is a name for that "prize", but to avoid another infraction I will refrain from posting that kind of picture on the forum.

Don't let your ego get too inflated. It's Annie and the puppies -- we're suckers for puppy pics and stories. Your kindness helped your cause.

No, sir!
Any time I let my ego flare up, God comes along and flicks my ear with his finger. Never fails to get my attention.
