And the winner of the "Guess When The 50 Millionth Post Will Happen" contest is...
Edited on Thu May-20-10 10:08 PM by EarlG
peekaloo

peekaloo's time was 9:30PM on Thursday May 20, which was the closest guess. She wins a fabulous DU T-Shirt.

And in case you were wondering who posted the 50 millionth post, well, it was NYC_SKP (one of our very own moderating team) who somewhat hilariously managed to post it right here. We think he deserves a DU T-shirt too :)

Congratulations to both of you, and thanks to everyone for taking part in the contest.

Here's to the next 50 million!

16. It's only because we are glued to our keyboards and monitors like little children in a sweatshop.

19. You say you do not get bathroom breaks?
Now let me call ICE on that operation.

:-)

(Been doing way too much readying into actual conditions at them sweat shops... true story, kids working at a Chinese clothing shop don't get a break for 14 hours)

5. Congrats to peekaloo and NYC_SKP!
This is a great place, and I am honored to be part of it!

My mathematical husband tells me I've contributed about 1/10th of 1% of all the posts!

27. In my own defense, I would point out that I was distracted by those little green
Rolling Rock ponies, which required part of my attention during the discussion
