    Are Administrators preparing to award special recognition of this milestone?

    A little Competition before The Thirty Thousand Threader treads threatingly towards totals totally unperturbed before.

    Complete this "" Ode to Tirty Tousand Treds ""

    "" Oh, let it be me
    Who strikes the Tirty Tousand Treds,
    Not an Interloper
    Who is coming on the Groper
    When all the works been done.
    ""
    A rule must be brought in barring new Threaders when The Science Forum is nearing this time. Westwind. ( I am working on an "" Ode to the Winner of the Tirty Tousand""

    Men and women are such fools,
    with petty egos, bounds and rules,
    now thirty thousand is the craving,
    a brass ring snatched by flying raven.

    For scheherazade. Well done. What a beautiful picture. Your Verse entry has earn't you 93% in the Competition. We see the light reflected from the Sourer's Eye, Tip of Wing towards the Sky, He needs not Gold, nor fear the Cold...so bold...so bold...so bold. westwind.

    I might give it a go and rhime something like that,

    If it's just science we all seek,
    or is it the words we can speak.
    The thoughts of our own, bound the world back and gone.
    The epic post we're waiting for will damn,
    Probably be someone asking the answer to it's exam.

    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    LOL....thank you for kind remarks and respectable grades. Poetry is in my soul but my mind and body has long been trained to disciplined effort and the free flight of words on the loose rein of imagination does not come easy to me in the expression of verse and meter. Not that such deters me from venturing near....

    Raindrops glisten
    on the new fallen leaves,
    Autumn makes arrival,
    Departing Summer grieves...
    As time, in passing,
    Her handiwork, ravage..
    Comes imminent, Winter..
    Cold beauty, savage.

    Wipes clean the slate,
    with her palette of white,
    refecting the stars,
    each stark winter night.

    Eventually, too,
    forced to withdraw,
    each season, in turn,
    crescendo and awe...

    Weep not for the passing
    of each yesterday,
    For the passing but heralds
    a new dawning day.

    I'm quite chilly now.... Somewhat thanks for that.. haha..

    Thought it needed to be about the 30k treads

    "The person who once was.... isn't
    The one i saw and laughed with.... won't
    The cheers we feeled the pain we shared.... can't"

    "I can't believe it's gone.... over
    Could i ever trust another one.... ever
    Will i ever forget the way you made me feel.... Now"

    "It all changed me,
    For the better, for the worse.
    I wouldn't be "me" without you."

    This is something i feeled some time ago.. Hmm

    For Zwolver. Mate, your Competition Entry in the Thread has earnt you 93%. Not because I thought it was brilliant, it wasn't. But the attempt was brilliant, and the follow up even better, so more power to your pen. westwind.

    There's those 'bounds and rules' that I mention in my first post to this thread, lol....

    A bit metaphorical perhaps, but the benchmark of thirty thousand, like the passing seasons in my poem, shall be noted by some, and be insignificant to others.

    (Judge Westwind, I throw myself upon the mercy of this court for I am a force of nature, occasionally given to eloquent detours from the topic at hand.)

    Thirty thousand blooming threads,
    All constructed in our heads,
    All quite legal, so no Feds,
    But keeping us away from beds,
    Forcing us to take our meds,
    To stop us turning into neds,
    But all this writing simply weds,
    The droll, the trite, the simply shite,
    To wondrous thinking, oh so bright,
    And thought provoking, deep insight,
    Writen here in black and white,
    With velvet glove, or vicious bite,
    Attack and maul, or be polite.
    A new idea, flown like a kite,
    A hostile thought, meant to incite,
    And on it runs, no end in sight,
    Thread piled on thread,
    And post on post.
    So many members now are toast,
    (And finding rhymes is dearly loathed)
    But new ones always, through the door,
    And more and more and more and more,
    And on until the ending thread,
    And when that's here, we'll all be dead.

    (To be sung to the tune of Mahler's third symphony.)

    Dear John Galt.. Not bad for a Moderator. Really a good take on The Science Forums. Hard to believe that most have Souls and a smattering of Literal Skills. I wasn't going to give a high percentage mark, it could have attracted and entry from MW, but, on reflection, I decided to award you 93%. Mostly for your last Stanzar. westwind.

    Your thread, westwind, has hit the mark,
    for even Galt has thrown a spark,
    A clever ditty, quite reflective
    Of a forum Mod's perspective.

    A question, though, does come to mind,
    why 30K, you special find,
    For after all, 'tis just a number,
    Beyond which we'll likely lumber.

    Yet as it seems to be a measure
    by which some benchmark you do measure
    I hope the honor, then be thine,
    And satisfaction be your fine.

    Thank you all for your wonderful support. Attracted(except for adelady) the most Literate Byrons, Burns, Wordsworths, Masefields, that The Science Forum could make available at this time. There was never any doubt the Posters I sent $50.00 to, they were always going to be on board.

    Just to sum this Thread up.

    I've just done me Mathematics
    And tried to work out some Statics
    To my dismay, I was all astray
    There'll be no getting de Treds every day.

    Tirty Tousand Treds, dat I should live so long,
    To see the Treds all gathered, tirty tousand strong,
    At two a day from those that may
    Two bloody years, and none on Xmas Day.

    Oh you lazy lot of ....ards,
    (not the postes above)
    Get your bloody fingers out
    Lets see your treds, just trot them out,
    Like Galty said
    I'll be dead
    Before the treds get up and spout. westwind.

    'Tirty tousand treds' you groan
    In accent that of francophone
    So I will ask out of respect
    Louisiana or Quebec?
    Perhaps I might take a chance
    At whether you might be from France

    At any rate your accent's rough
    To identify, is kind of tough
    I think it really would be great
    To type as we enunciate
    Then we could do as we are able
    To comprehend, like building Babel

    A burr, a drawl, even a twang
    To coin a phrase... the yin and yang
    Of spoken word put to typing
    Raised eyebrows and constant griping
    The English language is in vogue
    Yet who can figure Scottish brogue

    Regrettably as we all know
    Members here make the show
    Don't sit back and simply read
    'Cause contribution's what we need
    And westwind really does his best
    To encourage threads from all the rest

    Dear marnixR. Surely this image in symery was not taken in one of your Welch Valleys? This is an Antipodes Sky and I'm wondering why, with those great golden eye, that this bird allowed you to pry on his restful image?
    Does He nest in this tree?
    He is a Field Owl. Couldn't possibly be a Barn owl, his eyes arn't large enough.
    He has a damaged right Claw?
    Surely a man in possession of this image would be capable of verse?
    Wales cannot be that far from Stratford on Avon?
    The Shackspearan Fart should have been smelt in Wales?
    Or is it just the Valley Singing takes up the time? westwind.

    Dear thropo. Yes, a late entry, but the books are not closed yet. Your mark? 93%. The reason I've given you a good mark is that half your concentration would have been on the road. Still, you've shown me that, when it comes to the real Science, the gathering of one's thoughts, the correct assembly of same, the wrestling with the metre, the balancing of the bounce, and the delving for the descriptive word, you have this ability in abundance.
    My English Language is derived from the condensation of all the UK Tongues assembled together for 5 months on a Third Fleet Convict Transport out of merry England. Toss in a few Kookaburra calls, some bunyip howls, and a Wombats groans. and then you get...Ay?
    Tirty Thousand Treds ay? westwind.

    And Ode to Thirty Thousand Threads

    Thirty thousand threads,
    and I've made nary a one.
    But in my few short months here,
    I've had a lot of fun.

    So many different threads,
    so many things discussed.
    I've enjoyed participating,
    and so have you, I trust.

    Can I live on Martian soil?
    Travel through a big black hole?
    Please can someone help me?!
    I'm under ALIEN MIND CONTROL!

    Thirty thousand threads and counting
    may seem quite immense.
    It's too bad only half of them
    made any friggin' sense.

    For Flick Montana. Well done. How come you haven't Posted?

    Have to give you a mark, especially for your collation of previous Threads in one Quadrant. Say, 93%?

    Yep, when you come to evaluate the Quality of some Threads you wonder WTF is this. Still, it is better to look for some redeeming feature. Failure to locate a redeeming feature, you can then Poste the Threader and propose that it might be beneficial if the Threader rested his/her head for awhile.

    Now you have stumbled upon a Quality Thread here.

    Full of meaning, calling for all assembled to take stock of the Journey so far, and the time, perhaps, to come. Where will we be when Tirty Tousand Treds arrive? What other History will have been written in the Annals of Life? And are there any Pearls contained in DE Tirty Tousand Treds? Bound to be.

    Although weighted by a younger age group, The Science Forum Threads often originate from older Members. Younger Members often fail to follow up on a topic, seemingly satisfied if they have raised two or three Postes.

    Younger Members will become Senior Members in a very short space of time, especially if their interests and responses are at an above average level.

    Thirty Thousand Threads has implied Science. In these circumstances Poetry can be justified. Assembling Words instead of Stars. Words instead of Calculas, Formular being created in symery resulting in an acceptable and satisfying model.

    Also indicating that Young Science Students can embrace all of their feelings when working on a project...music...arts...fitness... a looking at the total invironment they are contributing too. westwind.

    Sweet thoughts
    in distant lands
    swallows journey's end
    to farewells desire.

    Right times lost
    in tranquil space
    arisen now the
    truely elegant idea.

    Things long forgotten
    were never true
    so shall they begin again
    it was the strangest year.

    As time draws close
    each much choose a post
    or take a flyer
    far or near.

    Well that depends on your perspective, most threads have participants enjoying them but even if a thread has had no responses if it has helped the poster learn from it how to create a better thread for next time is that not in itself worthwhile? Maybe we could say some threads are more productive than others but I certainly don't think 99% arn't worthwhile.

    How would you identify a worthwhile thread? Or phrased differently, what do you think the function of the forum and therefore of individual threads is? Perhaps you would like to select three examples of threads that are not worthwhile and we can see if other members agree with your appraisal. To make it objective I suggest that you hit the New Posts control then choose the third, twelfth and seventeenth posts that come up at that time. Agreed?

    I totally agree that only 1% might be considered 'worthwhile' to any single reader yet that which has value is subjective to the interests and life experience of each person, therefore the value of the threads must be considered as a whole.

    If any of the readership finds even 1% of the threads of value to their perspective, then this site has been of 100% value to them.

    Thirty Thousand Threads. It is my responsibility to make a progress report on the closing in of the Thirty Thousand Threadrer.

    At the bottom of our Home Page we have progressive updates of activity on The Science Forum.

    Please note we are in countdown mode for The Thirty Thousand Thread,,er.

    I've decided that we shall not impose any restrictions on Membership Threading, common sense dictating that no Member shall sit there Threading away at hearts content hogging the fast lane to become a winner of this Prestigious and Honourable milestone in the History of The Science Forum.

    I am still not certain of how Admin. will make any Presentation in regards this matter?

    But I wish to assure every Member that their contributions are building a powerful source bank of accumulated knowledge. Beam me up Scotty.

    westwinds trinkets and pearls, rubies and diamonds are all there for all to see.

    Because I am The Enchanter I have forwarning that I shall not be the Thirty Thousand Threader. ( can't be helped ). I'm handsome and virile and can't expect everything to fall my way.

    So, I'll be watching, hoping that a worthwhile Member receives the Spotlight. Plus the publicity and the honours so richly deserved.

    THE lucky Member will have the obligation of shouting the Bar. Good luck and may the Spirit be with you. westwind.

    May I suggest a little dance and party music for the occasion?



    Shout
    to buy someone a drink. At a bar or a pub when a group of friends meet, it is usual for each person to 'shout a round', meaning buy everybody a drink. Each person takes a turn at buying a 'round'. It is also acceptable to say that you do not drink (alcohol) by saying that you are a 'teetotaller'. This also means you are not obliged to shout.
    In my neck of the woods, even the designated drivers and/or teetotalers will stand their round most often, for the entertainment value if naught else, lol. If a chap is down on their luck or between paydays, they will be looked after and expected to reciprocate in better times.

    Of course, there's always one or two of those slippery sorts who'll call the shout and then be conveniently absent when it arrives, leaving the next in line to pay. Pull that stunt too often and you'll find your own glass not making the refill list in future, lol...

    (In a mixed crowd, ladies were not expected to stand a shout but I would occasionally do so despite this convention. It just made matters very clear, in my single days, that while I was there for a good time, all interactions and expectations would remain respectful. )

    Void filled with lamentation
    Noise seeking your attention
    They wove the threads of vanity
    Hanging them between probability

    Light as photon they burn the wires
    Like apes so proud of little fires
    Taming ignorance with curiosity
    Killing darkness with theory.

    But the threads are running thin
    For it is time to pay for the sin
    High in the pit of gravity
    Boiling the guts of energy

    Older than life, and its temptation
    The start of all our religion
    Is brewing the next lesson to burn
    In that wasteland we couldn't earn

    Science as failed on us so much
    Or was it us that miss to touch
    Reaching high in the virtual winds
    Lame proxy for waxy wings.

    Are there stats kept about most 'viewing', most number of active participants, most comments, longest running, most 'likes'? I haven't ever used the 'rating' function but maybe I should. It looks to me that not many members do.

    Whilst my own interests tend to be in the Environment, Biology, Anthropology category it looks at a glance that Physics and Chemistry often have the most numbers 'viewing'. That may vary a lot according to what's on the boards. Sometimes an excess of active participants can make a thread hard to keep track of but it does reveal that it's struck a nerve.

    I have enjoyed my participation and like to think it's (mostly) been positive. I've certainly found a lot of good information and interesting ideas but am not too concerned that it's a bit hit or miss; I can move on, nonsense gets pointed out quickly enough and usually (unless a lot of stuff gets excised that I never got to see) I sense more passion than poison in those I don't have much time for.

    Dear Posters to this Thread. It seems to me there is a possibility that The Thirty Thread may come up on Rememberance Day. ( SundayAEST 11TH DAY OF NOVEMBER) Different Time Zones I know.
    Would it be a good idea to Dedicate the Thirty Thousand Thread to the young Men and Women who have lost their Lives in Wars not of their making but called to Duty from where They were never destined to return.

    May They Rest in Peace and may Science so enhance the World that the need for Conflict becomes a thing of the past. westwind.

    Great Fireworks. Thanks ADMIN for taking an interest in this Thread. It seems appropriate that there is a little celebration at this time. Then the significance of Remembrance Day becomes more important as we remember those who were not around to celebrate with their buddies and comrades at the finish of their Conflicts.

    We can celebrate here because we have taken up the challenge of moving the World on through the advancement of Science, hopefully leading to better understanding among the Nations of this World. westwind.

    Thank you all.

    It is on the backs and forebearance of all of The Science Forum participants and contributors that enabled westwind to poste The Thirty Thousand Thread.

    Thanks ADMIN for joining in the fun.

    And well done anyway to The Science Forum for achieving this milestone. Former Threaders, present threaders, and those that will thread to come will weave a useful Tapestery.

    Now a little Poem I shall now make up on the spot ( or Poste ).

    Oh the contest has been won and the Future begun,
    QFU and THROPO and SCULPTOR in the Van,
    Onwards, onwards, to the Trash Can,
    Where we will happily write Poems the best we can??

    Thanks for your Company up till now and lets hope it continues for some time in the Future. westwind.
