I'm not too sure, stats page use to show how many people registered per day and I saw some days we were averaging around 200-300 or so newbies per day even more. Originally as geo said it was around 2000 members then when GYR was created that drove tons of traffic and we got up to about 10,000 or so... after that and the RGR it just went through roof and now we are over 55,000

Have you ever been to USA? Where would you go on vacation if it had to be in USA?

yeah, I've been to the States quite a few times... half a dozen at least. I've vacationed there plenty of times. I would probably do Hawaii at least once... maybe California for Disney Land and all the other stuff in and around LA. Maybe Disney World as well... I also want to go to New York and DC. I've been to DC but I only had a single day to spend there which meant we couldn't see very much.

Do you think that my previous action will be forgiven by the time I reach 5000 posts?

"Jean Paul Sartre" the french playwright who basically coined the term "existentialism" and explained it as a belief system influenced many other writers; such as John Gardner. In John Gardner's "Grendel" many of the main characters represent an ideologue or belief system (other then religious belief systems).

Having explained this, which character from John Gardner's book "Grendel" is analogous to the existential belief? Please explain what lead you to choose this character, and feel free to use quotations from the text (highly recommended for full marks).

Bonus points: which character showed Nihilistic traits. (HINT: there is a specific dialouge from Grendel where this character says something that is often used to describe Nihilism).

Ill give you a grade out of 10, with the bonus being worth 3.

Sept - I dunno... depends on how long you take to get there And I didn't really find getting a drivers license to be particularly difficult. The road test can be stressful if you haven't done too much driving before that... but I think it's all pretty straightforward and easy. Drive the way they want you to.

An J0e - what are you... my professor? I'm sorry. I'm not playing your little essay game. If you want to cheat on your assignment then go do it somewhere else.

that wasn't a question jake....

and I'm willing to bet I'm one of the best known and most liked members on this board. Just because you don't like me because I closed a couple pointless threads doesn't mean much to me. If you choose to stress about it then that's your problem not mine.

ok, saw the thread and my friend said give him one that would take a while to see if he would answer it. I read a few of your other awnser, and they were pretty expansive; so i bet you would attempt it, looks like i lost a buck.

The answer was Beowulf, and the bonus was The dragon with the nihilism quote being "Find some gold and sit on it".

As an actual opinion question.

Who do you hope runs in 2012?
i kind of like Ron Paul, but he has some serious issues in some areas (foreign policy for one).

Honestly... I'm skeptical enough at this point that I don't care. If Obama loses then we could get another George W. in office.... if Obama wins then we get another 4 years of speeches that go nowhere.

Ron Paul has always seemed like a bit of a loony to me. Although I do admire that his policies are pretty much already out there completely.... and I would see him as one of the only people to actually follow through on what he says he is going to do as president.... but I'm also scared for the world if he becomes president

well put, i think he would be one of the best at lowering the deficit (he cut over 100k in his district alone last year); but he could do some serious harm if his full ideology goes through. While he could get some economic legislation passed, i would still vote for him because i severely doubt that congress would let some of his more extreme polices through.

We just need to get Penn Juliet to run already.

PENN AND TELLER 2012.

heh... I wonder how well Penn would do if he ran for President. That could be really entertaining to be honest. He would pretty much call people on their crap all the time. It's too bad I'm not American or I would totally vote for him!

Since you're in Canada, have you ever seen Red Green live? He's been down here in Washington a couple times (but I've always had to miss him... ). Also, what's the weirdest question you've been asked?

alex - terrible layout. Looks awful.

And you won't get a redo.

Tido - Nope. Red Green is east coast... I can't stand him.

The question about existentialism was pretty odd. I'll give that one the weirdest question award for now

Good thing, I disliked it also.

I also don't think I did very good.

What's the weather like in the west coast, it's really hot here in the east coast.

well, I'm not actually on the west coast.... Annette would be able to give you more info on the west.

I'm on the East side of the Rocky Mountains... today and probably the rest of the week it should be low 70's which is just fine by me.

Hoochman : having an insecure moment or something?

The fact that you asked "Or is there even anything you find good about me at all?" is a little over the top. So instead of answering you question I'm going to leave you without an answer and tell you to get over whatever it is that is making be over the top.
