Hey guys need some help with a bit of a project.

Preferably before Nov the 2nd. I would like to gain 561 additional postings on this glorious website Johan has created and successfully run in spite of us.

So what I need you all to do is band together and figure out some way to get me to post more over the next few days. Ask me questions, make comments for me to respond to whatever. I work this weekend so for the next four nights I will have up to 12 hours each to respond, assuming work is slow. Can be in this thread or any of the others on this site.

Keep me busy please.

And it case anybody is wondering.

I am formulating a special subject for a thread, but symbolicly I want to start it on the next even number in my total thread count, would add a bit to the message.

NO I AM NOT GOING TO TELL YOU NOW!!!

Thanks for the help guys.

L-188,

Over the years Alaska has voted for the Republican Presidential Candidate time and again. Why is Alaska such a Republican Enclave?

Thanks for the help Techrep

My take on it.

Well Alaska traditional has had economies based on resource extraction be it fishing, logging, mining, or currently oil. In the past 40 years the republicans have traditionally been more favorable to the reasonable exploitation of these resources for economic benfit.

The Democrates and the left however do tend to be beholden to enviromental interests. Both Clinton and to a much greater extent Carter in the late 1970's invoked wildland management policies that where decidedly negative to those industries that I mentioned that also employed a majority of the workers in this state.

You make enemies when you take away a persons ablity to feed their family.

Also nationwide you will notice that rural areas tend to be more conservative. Hard to argue that Alaska does not have large tracks of rural areas. I suspect that the fact that survival and success is more hands on in these areas has a lot to do with it. You actually have to plant your seed to get crops so to speak as opposed to going down to the soup kitcken.

Thanks only 560 odd left to go!

Well hi there, I am really curious about what you have to say, but you should also realize the fact that many users here do not like you, especially those with other political views, so after reading this post they may just as well do the opposite  Wink/being sarcastic

Anyway ! I have some nice suggestions/solutions to your little problem.

  • Answer to every thread in the "Polls and Prefs forum" (if you have not yet done that) or...

  • comment on every report in the "Trip reports" forum, people usually appreciate that - it should also take a while and bring you a lot closer to the magical 20k.

  • Start one of those silly word association threads and post frequently, Singapore_Air used to come up in the 300 post area (but you may not want to sink that low)

  • You can also start a thread asking all users who think you are a far-right-racist-psycho to sign with a post (that should generate quite a lot of them  Smile/happy/getting dizzy) and then you just reply to every one

  • Act like ScottysAir

  • Yeah and one more important thing to think of... DO NOT GET BANNED  Laugh out loud


  • Good luck !

    Leviticus...

    You really shouldn't consider yourself a member of the A-net family until you get yourself banned at least once!

    Twice would be better.

    Anymore then that and it is like have a 30 year old living with his/her parents.

    Sorry to skip over you SW733.

    The Meaning of Life is a very funny movie.

    Detals here.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085959/

    My personal favorite scene, when John Cleese teaches sex ed at one of those English boy schools. That looks like something from Harry Potter.

    Makes me wonder if that is what Superfly's school board canadate will do.

    If America sucks so bad according to many on this forum, then why when people move here do they love it so much?

    It isn't a matter of America sucking...although I do note that I vote Alaska Independence Party which is a political party tasked for the sucession of Alaska from the US. But what it is a matter of is people claiming America Sucks to further their poltical ends.

    Hey guys, got to go to class now, but keep it comming.

    Nope not a chace USairwys757, Kerry's conduct after Nam, his stance on my gun rights (purely against) put the nails in his coffin.

    However there is some logic to your comments, a very unfavorable president might be able to drum up the anger for succession and Kerry fits the bill.

    Don't quite see enough comming from there though.
