    Default Count Game II

    The previous count game was a rousing-ish semi-success. So what do you do with a marginal piece of work with limited appeal?

    It's sequel time!

    The rules were simple but have been amended to see if we can have a better game this time.

    *Your post must be a number.
    *The number in the post must be one less than the number in the previous post.
    *Your post may come in text or pictorial form.
    *You may post no more than two messages consecutively.
    **AMENDMENTS
    *If you are a mod or admin, you may post no more than one message consecutively. (abuse of the 30 second rule waiver clearly frustrated us mere mortals in the last go rond).
    *If you post out of order, you must edit the post to the correct number ASAP. Straggling incorrect numbers will be chastised with a stern look and perhaps a bit of whimpering from Lothar.

    The point of the game: be the poster who posts #1.

    888 seemed to be a stretch to far for the Foosters who clearly did not pay attention during math classes. So kdaleb is curious how far afield we can get when dealing with a massive number.

    I will start shortly.

    Check the bus number
    FYI, it's 4237 (which also happens to appear on one of kdaleb's licence plates)

    So for some reason, the board would not post the image, just a link to the image. kdaleb is too lazy to find another image with the appropriate number and will therefore move on to the next number:

    even though mods aren't liked in this game, Lothar fixed the pix of the bus (moved/stole it to imageshack)

    Lothar has a feeling that the average Foo SAT math score is waaaaay above average. This makes the inability to properly count down from 888 to 1 even more...interesting...

    We need a side prediction as to when this sucker will reach # 1 . . .of course it wouldn't take as long if kdaleb lifts the restraint of trade on mods/admins vis a vis the no consecutive posts by mods/admins

    yeah, it's not like a mod posting twice in 5 seconds while in the 3000s is going to affect who posts first when this thing gets close to 1...

    ...if the mod limit were to be lifted, the mod 1 post limit could be reinstated when the count gets below 100...

    Well, if the un-Foo-stitutional denial of mod/admin liberties remains in place, this Count Game might last until the start of the hoops season

    Personally, my rubbadub-ly bitter self is enjoying watching the mods be straightjacketed for once.
