Has it been seven years already? Wow, it seems like just yesterday we were in the Lower Decks trying peek up the girls dresses. Well, I was trying to peak up the girls dresses. You were trying to stick your fingers in Loki's buttcrack while screaming "WHERE IS THAT MAN JELLY, BUCKAROO?"
And we're done for another year!

I think it's time for me to wish Starscream a very happy anniversary!

Well done, my man, on your 8 years.

Re: Three Years Of Starscream: A Celebration

So that's...

Eight years of Starscream.
Seven years of CaptainWacky.
Five years of "Three Years Of Starscream: A Celebration".
Two years since I switched usernames back to CaptainWacky.

All there is to do now is PM Jethro, reply to whatever pithy comment he deems to leave, then sit back for another year...

Re: Three Years Of Starscream: A Celebration

Congratulations on your 8th anniversary! You may think this is not a special anniversary because it is not your 5th or 10th anniversaries, however the number eight is considered particularly auspicious in Chinese culture because it sounds similar to the word for 'prosper' or 'wealth'. It is pronounced like "bah" in Mandarin (pinyin: bā). It is also the same sound that many Chinese pigs make when mating, hence it has become a symbol for fertility. I also like the visual aspect of the 8th anniversary because it is similar to the infinity symbol which is a very happy thing to associate with the connection you have with Trekbbs. Or if you turn it sideways, it looks like a scrotum. So from all of us here at the Church of Jethro, may your 8th anniversary be bountiful with infinite blessings and joy!

Re: Three Years Of Starscream: A Celebration

Thank you for that, it means a lot to me. Especially the bit about pig mating and scrotum. This board need a karma/reputation system so I can "pos" you.

This thread usually goes through three key stages at this time..

1) I get my friends from TK and Jethro to bump it.
2) Some random newbies bump it with "Cheers on three years, Starscream!" without reading one post.
3) Susannah bumps it six months later.

Hoping for some random newbies now!

Congrats on the anniversary CaptainWacky!

I hope you're around for another eight years because the place just wouldn't be the same without you.

I'm not really a random newbie, but I'll offer my congrats. I just hit 7 years earlier this month.

[Keanu] Whoa. [/Keanu]

There is something about this time of year that causes temporal distortions in my vicinity. Reading this thread just multiplied that effect by about 1,000.

And the tradition continues.

But here's the real odd thing: I've only posted once in this thread and it was nearly FIVE years ago!

Count on Jethro to make the truly pertinent observation.

Re: Three Years Of Starscream: A Celebration

Thanks for the replies!

What does it say about this board that I have under 5,000 posts in eight years but over 80,000 on TK in five years?

(It says that this board has much tighter spamming rules.)

Yeah, but you're a much funnier person on Troll Kingdom. You need to step it up a notch over here if you ask me.

Congrats, by the way.
