    Good choices, all. Congrats!!!

    How come Kurdt didn't get the "best Kurdt" award, though?

    Congrats to everyone (including myself).

    When does the volcano ceremony start? Is volcano allergic to anything, or can I eat whatever I want before? Should I dress formal? Plastics allowed, or natural fabric only to keep pollution low? Sorry if I am asking too many questions, but I don't wont to spoil the ceremony, and you know, I was never thrown into before, so I am a volcano virgin :shy:

    Darn! I'll have to watch out for that sneaky MIH if she tries to steal my "best turbo" title. She'll have to camp out here and grow chili peppers and make chili relishes to qualify. In the case of a tie (yay!) there may have to be a Jello-wrestling tie-breaker. Tickets will be available on a first-come-first-served basis.

    Wow - thanks and congratulations to everyone!!!!
    I'm going to have to be more careful checking my answers now.

    Well done Borek (I know I should have worn a wig as well - assuming that is a wig and not a chemistry lab accident )

    one small step for a goldfish …

    congrats to all the other winners, and thanks to everyone who hangs around the homework forums and knows more physics than i do, but voted for me! :redface:

    ahem … is this mike working?

    i'd like to thank all the smilies who've supported me during the last year …

    particularly wink smilie :wink:
    rolleyes smilie :rolleyes:
    and of course smilie smilie :smile:

    i could not have done this without them!

    i would also like to thank my scientific mentor, sir isaac the newt :approve:, and my mouse, whisskerstein :eek:, with his sage advice "what we cannot speak about we must pass over in silence" (and without whom of course i would not be able to access my computer!)

    this now qualifies me for the international goldfish of the year finals
    in the superbowl! :approve:
    i hope everyone will come and support me! :smile:

    i'd like to thank my 117 brothers and sisters, my mum,

    :cry: :cry: :cry:

    oh i'm sorry

    this has never happened to a goldfish before

    :cry:

    i think i'd better just quote from julie brown's speech in the 1988 film earth girls are easy …

    Congrats to all.
    I did not vote this year because I simply couldn't make up my mind. All nominees were over-qualified for their categories. Also, I haven't really been around enough to form a solid opinion.
    The election results are pleasing, though.

    And, he was very nearly the most helpful Humor Guru too!

    Congrats to all the winners. If I get around to it, I'll try to honor some of you with special redbelly avatars in the near future.

    Two.

    That's not the only category in which differences between the winner and the second place were minimal.
