  • How much money could we make from a Multi-National?

    Say, get Coca-Cola and Pepsi to bid in the BIG figures on E-Bay for the rights to be the company to "Kill The Thread".

    Put the "dosh" to the Fallen Firefighters Fund?

    Get the Media weasels involved to drive it along.

    ps. "dosh" = "CASH"

    Just a thought Einstein.

    Would the Webteam mind?

    • Not if they made money and got publicity.

      But we have tried everything to kill this thread, all wanting the glory for it being the downfall. Someone will always post something hopping that it will be the last post, then the next person will do the same, in a never ending cycle.

      I think we should make the rule that if someone posts something in this thread, and no one replies within 24H they get a thread killer award.

        • well no award for you either then!

          Should we award people for previous kills? or start from now?
