There appears to be only three of us here at the moment, but there could be others that are utilising the cloak of invisibility, then again perhaps there isn't.
It looks like I was right about the cloak of invisibility, but now it seems Matilda has got fed up and gone down the pub.
Let's go join her - the first round is on me !
Nim's here, we are three again, or is it four ?
Yes, I know what you're thinking, I'm only posting this rubbish in order to boost my post count and you're quite correct, but it's nothing to be ashamed about.
.... Or is it ?
I was watching a really depressing programme on TV about ending up in a care home. Giron does the GPO have a care home for former tea drinkers pretending to work?
I was watching that and it was rather depressing, as far as I know the GPO doesn't have any care homes, so I'm up the creek without a paddle when I
If anyone says I'm already doolally I'll report them to the janitor !
Sorry, KF was lost among about 15 windows of quotes on assorted subjects for images I'm working on.
You haven't missed anything, so there's no harm done.
In any case, Nim and Matilda seem to have gone back down the pub.
I've wasted a day and a bit trying to learn all the idiosyncrasies of my Billion modem/router because something keeps screwing with my settings. So, yes, I'll have a scotch, and a double, straight up!
Sometime there are three, but they're not the Trinity, which explains the depleted daily post count.
Speaking of Trinity, here's a useless fact that most of us had probably forgotten. The test site for the A-Bomb before they tested it on Japan was called Trinity. Something I learned from watching Billy Connoly.
The daily post count is much improved now that Leigh is back in action, well done that man.
I do my best, when I feel like it!
It's what separates the players from the spectators, isn't it ?
The Trinity are restricting their postings in order to keep the average daily post count below 50, a clever strategic move.
You could have been part of Trinity.
Once again the Trinity have done a magnificent job.
I wonder how many of them lived very long to tell their tale.
The Trinity have successfully managed to keep the daily post count low, thus ensuring the overall objectives of their master plan will prevail.
Once again the Trinity have successfully boosted the daily post count.
Never in the field of forum postings was so much owed by so many to so few ....
The GPO Rules !
Ain't KarlsForums good. We were posting even in 1957!
Ah yes, but they were imaginary posts.
How do you know? Were you here then, or were you imagining it?
I wasn't actually there, but I imagine that's what happened.
We don't have that sort of thing in open forum!Get ye over to the Late Night Club, where we all imagine we're having a good time.
But it's only an imaginary good time, isn't it ?
Only three here at this moment in time.
+25 at the door.
I think Dot's killed most of 'em with her
Hi it,s getting crowded in here.
Ah, so you managed to avoid the bloodshed ?
Bloodletting is contained to the outer courts. Those who use the (secret) tradesman's entrance usually avoid it.
I never use the tradesman entrance, so I wouldn't know - but I do think that someone should stack the bodies in a tidier way until the 'bone collector' comes for them. Health and Safety would have a fit if they saw them at the moment !
I would like to make it clear that I never enter by the rear passage.
I'm pleased to hear that giron. Maybe you could help Nim with the cleanup?
Once again the Trinity have done themselves proud with a multitude of interesting and expertly crafted posts.
So say you!
You can't deny the facts, please don't shoot the messenger.
Once again the Trinity have done a magnificent job and are currently responsible for 42 out of a total of 58 posts in the last 24 hours.
C'mon Bear, you should know that giron and imagination are never to be found in the same sentence, all of his posts are "factual".
Who are 'the trinity' ? Should they be expanded into a quartet or even a heptet ?
The Trinity are the top three posters at any particular time, the actual names will tend to vary but it's fair to say some names
crop up more often than others.
The Trinity are usually responsible for at least 70% of the total posts made and the top poster can achieve something like 1/3 of the total posts.
It's amazing what a big difference it makes to the daily post count when people participate and interact, isn't it ?
To use a football analogy, it's the difference between a player on the field and one on the subs bench.
Up the Accies !
Let's face it, without Man U and American Politics, it's getting harder and harder to reach the dizzying heights of a certain competition in recent history.
Ah yes, the halcyon days when scholar make up to 372 posts per day, sadly Ruby put her foot down and insisted he did something productive rather than spend hours and hours on the internet.
A bunch of overpaid overhere foreigners I think...
I take it you're not too keen on American tourists ?
Or any other sort by the tone of that comment.
They can come and spend as much as they like.
Quite so, as long as they go home afterwards.
That said, it would probably be a good idea if Mitt Romney was banned from coming here again, he made a right fool of himself on his last visit.
You just better hope they never discover large deposits of oil under English soil. If they do, we will be coming for the Motherland.
I've heard rumours that there's loads of oil under Scottish soil, but don't let on I told you.
The Trinity go from strength to strength and are currently doing a magnificent job in maintaining the post count at a respectable level, participation is the key to success.
scholar joins the Trinity .....
Matilda has raced into the lead with a magnificent collection of informative and well crafted posts, it's incredible what she is able to achieve when she has a day off work, but I can't help wondering why she hasn't got any housework to attend to.
The house will still be there when I'm gone.
Ah yes, the Quentin Crisp approach to housework, he came to the conclusion that dusting was a waste of time as it only came back again.
If you don't own a feather duster simply tie a red wig to the end of your trusty teachers cane.
Don't forget to remove the wig before you give unruly pupils a jolly good thrashing.
Dust is a preservative, If you don't disturb it, you'll find that the surface upon which it settles, is still there when someone (else) cleans it away, ergo: preservative.
the bear has joined thr Trinity
It's just the top three posters of the day (post number-wise), rather than just one member of the day Bear.
But bear in mind the top three posters continually change throughout that rolling 24 hour time slot.
And, only giron ever checks who they are...
Giron is GPO trained - that qualifies him to do many things !
I'm not the only one that's GPO trained, of course.
The Trinity is constantly changing.
Farther son & buttered toast
I think you're in the wrong thread victor, you need the Late night café where they post about imaginary food and stuff.
PS - what's your favourite imaginary music ?
Should we move this to RSE?
Once again the Trinity have done a magnificent job, despite the fact that some of our members don't believe they actually exist.
The truth is out there and plain to see.
I believe that The Bear exists, and you exist, Giron - not sure about myself or anyone else !
I'm GPO trained but I don't believe any of you exist, 'cept maybe, the Bear, but that's only 'cause he's nice.
There's been some excellent tactical posting by the Trinity in the last 24 hours which has successfully reduced the daily post count.
I used the capital letter because you are such Great Guy and keep us all Genned up about such Good things !
What are you after, Nim?
Being allowed in from the naughty step - it is cold out here !
Can I watch?
No you can't watch, there are far too many spectators as it is !
Participation is the key to success.
I can ensure a good number of paying spectators. I'm sure that John would like to watch, maybe Scholar, to give some moral support, we may even tempt Charles out of the woodwork if we tell him that it's a Man City supporter who is getting a flogging by an MU supporter. (OK - I know it's not true, nut never let the facts......and all that) RW may come along to give an unbiased media report, come to think of it, Scholar may be able to find some way of blaming Obama, even though I know it's all Jiliar's fault.....You get the idea.
Watch it Giron, he might like that.
He might not like it initially, but he's soon learn to enjoy it, probably.
Once again the Trinity have done a magnificent job and remember, if it wasn't for them, there'd be no posts.
That's a scientific fact, although it might be beyond the comprehension of some folk.
I do my best, considering I work full time...
