    Seems like everyone got a "Great post" reply from Jack Briggs except me! [​IMG]
    I shouldn't have said anything bad about 2001! I'm sorry Jack! Forgive me!

    Max, I’ve never received a Pretty Good Post™ award from Jack, either. I couldn’t be more disappointed. I’ve tried sucking up by saying good things about his favorite movie. I’ve tried participating in scientific discussions and using really big, scientific-like words. I’ve even appealed to his appreciation for good writing by always using the subjunctive mood correctly and appropriately. Oh, sure, I once wrote “should of” in a post, but that was a joke. I even included a smiley.
    Like you, Max, I’ve lost a lot of sleep over this. I lay awake at night trying to imagine what I possibly could have done to set Jack off. Whatever it was, it must have been horrible.
    But, for what it’s worth, I appreciate your longstanding contribution to this forum, Max. Your appreciation of significant scientific achievements, your clear and critical thinking, and your ability to express yourself clearly have made this forum a better place.
    However, if I were Jack, I’d stop checking that last sentence for faulty parallelism and give the Pretty Good Post™ award to me instead of you, because I love 2001 more than you do, and also because stochastic quantum resonance, Schrödinger interoperability radius, and xenonumismatist are just a few of the big scientific words I know.
    So, there.
    Wait… Is it “I lay awake,” or “I lie awake”?
    Dang! I think I just blew it again!
    Oh, wait a second. This will fix everything: [​IMG]

    Ok Brian, as long as I get the Nifty Post Lifetime Achievement Award instead!
    Maybe in a few years we'll meet in Jack Brigg's Mansion of Seductive Pleasure, surrounded by scantily-clad Playboy Playmates (how do you get the TM symbol?) who appreciate scientific reasoning, open-mindedness, and critical thought!
    I'm getting all snuffily about it. *sniff*
    I hope snuffily is a word.

    Oh and thanks for the kind comments Brian...your ass-kissing is noted. When I make my first billion, I'll let you in on it! I cannot make any guarantees about inflation though, if the Snow Crash scenario hits...

    Do you guys think a "Peter Hyams Appreciation Thread" would garner such praise? I'm thinking of starting one. [​IMG]

    Peter Hyams. Oh, the man whose mug I have affixed to a dart board in my office. The man whose photo I tried to talk the United States Post Office into putting on their bulletin boards next to the FBI lists. The man whom even my cat Attila knows must never be mentioned within the walls of Castle Briggs. Hyams.
    There, I feel better now. Great thread, guys! [​IMG]

    You're forgiven Brian...as a former victim of caffeine addiction myself, I understand the choice you made completely. You bastard!

    Whenever I hear the "Hyams" I keep thinking of hyman. Am I sick, or is it perversely appropriate?
