LONG LIVE THE MEGA-POST!

You should be able to view it again, but Masako had to shut off the comments at…

3821.

She had to delete one spam comment to get it viewable again (link).

Please, let’s hear a big round of applause for all of you who posted in the Mega-Post and kept it alive for a year and four months. Please use this comment thread to post your fondest memories of the post with the most…

    And don’t forget her cousins: Faith, Hope, and Grace.

  2. Brother Mugga says:

    You’ve clearly never met any Cheltenham Ladies College ladies, Nxxx.

    Nor can Ace or Steve, come to think of it.

    They’re more like Plague, Famine (good god yes, Famine), Pestilence and Death (pronounced ‘Dee-ath’ as a family tradition).

  3. Ace Deuce says:

    I thought he said her name was Intelligence, but I may have heard it wrong. It could have been Incontinence, as the others in the room called her Connie.

  4. Steve G. says:

    To borrow a movie line from Cary Grant: “The Four Horsemen now have a riding companion.”

  5. Ace Deuce says:

    Death called in sick, but Death’s horse Binky is hot to trot.

  6. Brother Mugga says:

    What I want to know is who the hell saddles the horses? Trying selling yourself in the future with that on your CV.

  7. Ace Deuce says:

    On the one hand, I hate to see all the spam comments that come in to this site. On the other hand, they sometimes lead me to an article I have forgotten about, which I then read, and which gives me the chuckles. On the gripping hand, once I get the chuckles, I have to make another trip to the clinic.

  8. Brother Mugga says:

    I hesitate to ask what your hand’s gripping, having been led to an ‘article’ you’d forgotten about. But, as you can see – and in the true tradition of the Giga-Post – I didn’t hesitate long.

  9. Ace Deuce says:

    Did I make an obscure reference to the Niven/Pournelle novel The Mote in God’s Eye, which features an alien civilization whose asymmetrical people each have three hands, and refer to the third hand as the gripping hand? Why, I supposed that is the case.

    I believe the lesson we’ve learned here on the Giga-Post is that all roads lead to the gutter.

  10. Brother Mugga says:

    Which is why we keep returning, of course.

    You can’t get this kind of quality filth just anywhere.

  11. Steve G. says:

    At least not for free anymore.

  12. Nxxx says:

    Sorry to be absent, waddya meen, we woz glad but suffering broadband problems. Finally, when each byte was being delivered by a man with a cleft stick, the suppliers sent round a REAL ENGINEER. It works and can now cope with three words a minute which is faster than my typing and my lip movements as my finger moves across the screen.

  13. Brother Mugga says:

    Personally I miss the good olde Days of problem free Analogue Communication. Like semaphore. And whistling.

  14. Steve G. says:

    And signal fires.

  15. Ace Deuce says:

    I regret that I never learned sign language, because I get the sense that all these hand gestures that people direct toward me might carry admonitions that it would be healthy for me to heed. Consequently I just walk a little faster…

  16. Nxxx says:

    Windows 10 “Creator’s Update” became generally available in Holy Week.

    Micro$oft DO have a sense of humour.

  17. Brother Mugga says:

    I’ve always said Gates was a total giggle. In so many ways.

  18. Nxxx says:

    BroMu,
    Is that a reference to our gig economy?

  19. Steve G. says:

    Either way, it seems to have worked out well financially for him.
