Be a post whore!

So, you want your post count to go up? But can't think of anything worthy of its own thread? Post here!

Your random thoughts. Your useless post posting. Before you know it, you'll be a post whore extraordinaire!

"Grok"? I haven't heard that since the 60s. "Stranger In A strange Land".


And I can be a post whore, pre-whore and any other kind of whore.

Why would we want our post numbers to go up? I don't see the incentive. Maybe if I got free iPod or something for every 1,000 posts.

I have one:

Walking through the halls, it occurred to me that when the first part of this building was built, in 1973, they never dreamed that students would one day not carry backpacks, but would wheel them along behind them. So the flooring in that part is tile/grout. You can imagine the noise between classes.

When I was in college there was only one way to transport stuff to class: a backpack with one, and only one, strap on your shoulder. To carry with two straps meant you were a total loser.

But, we didn't have laptops wayyyyyy back then.

Oh, my dear, you are so young.

In 1973 there were three ways to carry your books.

One was in a big, loose pile.
The other was bound together with a rubber strap that linked together with these bent metal clips on either end, kind of like a bungie cord but flat, and instead of the hook thingies with the points, it was more like a little toggle/buckle deal.

If you were a total loser, you carried a briefcase of some kind, either the traditional hard sided suitcase like variety, with a snap lock in the middle, or one of the top open kind that would balloon out a wee bit with a strap over the top that snapped into a latch on the side. You probably had at least one totally geekish teacher (Latin or Science, usually) in high school that still carried one of these.

Of course, textbooks were a lot smaller then, since you only had to take Readin', Ritin', 'Rithmatic, P.E., and Shop for boys, Home Ec for girls.

My 11 yr old had so many books, not to mention a 3 inch binder last yr-her backpack weighed about what she did

wrt backpacks in college...

Went to the health center because my back was killing me. Doc (nurse, pa, whatever...) said "stand up straight" and I did. I looked in the mirror, yep, straight. Ok, now take off your backpack and stand up straight. Ok, no problem. Stood up straight, felt straight, balanced fine, felt fine. Looked in the mirror and I saw myself shrinking away from some invisible something on my right. Like I was leaning away from something extremely distasteful. Needless to say, nothing was there. Including the nothing of my 25 pound backpack which I routinely wore "non-total-loser-style" on my right shoulder *only*. I had trained my body to accept this asymmetrical load and without it, I was definitely crooked. But my back hurt like crazy. And the prescription was to wear the load evenly. If the left shoulder went naked, that meant no backpack. If I had to bring the backpack (and I always did), two straps, two shoulders, and stand up straight, boy!

I'm a looooo-ooh-ooh-ser...[/musical reference]

Shortly after I registered, someone on here was talking about their dad (I think) totally buggering his knee by constantly sitting with on leg curled under him. I said "oh i do that too". Now my knee's buggered.

Me, too. And that same knee was buggered (I love that word, hope you don't mind if I borrow it) when I had the cartilage taken out because of HS basketball. But it's the only way I feel really comfortable.

So true, fashion over function. Just like many women's shoes.
