DISCLAIMER: Glistam, don't you dare for a minute think I'm complaining here. This is a comment without opinion.

Now, without further ado:

Has anybody noticed that the catch-all thread is like 14-15 pages long and has not been moved to the vault? It is indeed a thing of wonder.

Well, on ezboard it seemed as if I was the only one bothered by threads with many pages, so I've opted here to leave it alone and just let it keep growing.

I prefer to let it grow it's own personality. I'll be curious to know what it enjoys doing for fun, what kinds of books it reads, what concerts it likes, all that.

Or how it plans to kill us and become self-moderated.

That's honestly the nicest thing you've ever said about me <sniffle>.

Your mom says nice things about me all the time, though.

I just wanted to be the first person to start the poultry cleavage discussion on this particular thread. That being said, I hope you all have a pleasant evening.

I'd like to point out that the thread's growth is accelerating. Soon it will consume all resources, choke out all other threads, require all available bandwidth, and reign supreme for a short time.

Shortly after the apex, a new threat will be introduced and - lacking diversity - the entire thread species will go extinct.

You are describing this ecological behavior:



It is described by the Lotka-Volterra predator-prey equations.

At what point does the chicken-boobie thread develop self-awareness and become fully sentient? What precautions have we taken to protect us from this? Will the chicken-boobie entity be willing to negotiate, or will we even be able to establish a means of communication? These questions keep me awake at night.

"How may I serve you, Master Breast?" There that will work.

I think this has come up before, but maybe it's not the same issue

No, it isn't. Chicken boobies are far more important.
