I want to point out something:
More people commented on this than on this -- we're forum-based, not really commenting on anything with purpose :P

(*waits for people to debate forum purposeness so he can agree with them*)

Wow, I'm really glad I kept these two captions separate... I had suspected there would be a large difference - and I was right :p If I combined them (which would have been slightly more work anyway), these results would be totally different :) Interestingly, the range between #1 and #50 here is much greater than the other list of names. AND, #50 here is lower than #50 over there :p That's to say, we can see the active core community (inactive being more like a "drive by" question et. al.).

No, it means you'll have a 1/4 life when you're twice as old as you are now ;-) You're probably radioactive!

#10! I don't know if it is a good thing or a bad thing. I guess it is a good thing considering what type of community this is. It's better than posting on some useless forum I get nothing out of. Nice job Eric!!!

Yay! That's three lists! Man, I talk more on here than I ever do in "real" life...I guess that's because I know three other people who are as geeky as I am, and one's in college, another is in a different grade and I oddly never see him, and the other is my dad. I hope that LasVegas and lemonie return to defend their position...come baaaaaaack! Come baaaaaaaaack!

#5 -- Sweet! I didn't know I even broke 1000 total... I guess I get around! 'sfunny, though, I didn't do so well on 'ibles comments -- I thought I kept up with those. Again, a wierd curve at the top...
