    Why don't we just deduct like 10 reasons from this list to compensate for the duplicates.

    Like the next person that posts, why don't you start at 960 or 970 or something?

    That way it will be a legit 1000.

    I guess we have passed 100 now - but what is #1000? after doing my #855 I found several duplicates numbers (not reasons) in the first 500 so I guess if it is the same in th last 500 around 990 is really #1000.

    I also read through the first 500 (I have made some comments in my #855) and I was suprised to see that there was very few duplicate reasons if any. I saw a few twist and turns around the same issues but they were really not the same reasons - although 149 1/2 and 150 are quite the same (not sure about the numbers but one was numbered with 1/2 and the next by another poster was stating almost exactly the same. (the 1/2 one was from rockHEAD)

    ------------------
    We can reach our destination, but it's still a ways away.

    the story behind the half, if i recall correctly is... if you go back and look, Vengeance and I posted the same thought at almost the same time. One minute apart. [​IMG] Both our posts start with 149 and Tacoma Park Legend's ends with 149. [​IMG] Vengeance changed his I guess not noticing that TPL's ended in 149. I would've been 150 and his first post would've have followed with 151. [​IMG] So, before I could change mine and by the time I noticed several people had already posted and Vengeance's post was changed and I was stuck with the extra 149 [​IMG] ... so I changed it to a half and left both our threads instead of deleting it... [​IMG] i just left it. I could've edited and left it blank or something... but never did... [​IMG]

    [​IMG] <whew>

    so... there it is.. the story behind the half. [​IMG]
