Congratulations, Paul and Professor Jacobson!

When I was declared #100,000, I was on top of the world. Now I find I am just a lowly foothill to Mount Shasta. That’s okay!

On to #1,000,000!

Good thing it happened to be a longer comment and not a snarky on-liner that would make no sense whatsoever out of its original context.

    (Or a correction comment for that matter. What are the odds of getting a 1-2 minute window to fix typographical errors on comments?)

Paul, I think you’ve been ‘unmasked.’

I’m crushed….. pretty sure I came in at 499,999


I knew it was a special comment when it actually made Milhouse stop digging himself deeper into a hole.

But seriously, lots of great articles and conversations here over the years. Kudos to the prof, the contributors and the readers for keeping it interesting and (mostly) civil.

    This site is interesting and the comments are civil leading to an exchange of ideas which makes it one of the few worth reading daily.
