I'd pay money to see Integral in Evo's high heel pumps.

Zz.
I would pay if it meant that I didn't have to look. :surprised

undoubtedly, dainty little shoes, defies imagination!
As I recall, that didn't stop you from wearing her sun bonnet.

So I guess if you're retired, I can go back to calling you 'the old fart'.

Congrats, Zapper. Good on ya.

Hey, now seriously folks, I think Integral deserves a huge virtual applause for his many hours donated not only to furthering science education, but also helping to make PF what it is today. He has been a great asset here at PF from nearly the beginning.

clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap

Standing ovation!

Yeah... what he said. :approve:

I guess I'll hold off with the nickname for now. After all, I still owe you for the Vamp pix. Don't get too comfortable, though. :biggrin:

...This post was supposed to follow Janus'. Thank you for killing the masterful anticlimactic effect I was about to make, Integral.

Since Our esteemed colleague appears reluctant to speak, I'll do so on his behalf.

I've been here since the "Early Days", not as long as some of you, but long enough to remember PF as it once was. They were rough times. The battles were fierce, and those of us fighting the "good fight" were barely holding our own, it would not have taken much for us to be overwhelmed by the powers of darkness.

But then, on the Net horizon appeared a figure, an imposing figure who with mere keystrokes scattered the minions of crackpottery and ignorance, rallying the troops under the standard of reason. The tide turned, and PF survived to become the glowing jewel it is today.

And now our shining warrior has decided to step down from the lime-light, to reap a well deserved rest.

So let's raise our glasses into Salute:

To Integral!

Salute!!!!!! :approve:

(but in reality he has become more powerful) He's like Obi-Wan Kenobi when he raises his lightsaber to allow Darth Vader to kill him, except the only thing remaining is his robe. He becomes part of the force. :approve:

I'll say. Integral was already the Physics Mentor when I got here in 2002, but I remember that his predecessor was a raging crank.

By the way,who is Zz? :confused: Isn't he Zinedine Zidane?! :wink:

I don't know...I just went hunting for phrases to be said with toasts; supposedly they are the equivalent to "cheers" or "to your health" but since I don't know most of those languages, I just had to hope I got the right phrases. :biggrin:

it is worth gold if you know that many languages.

you must have at least a six digit salary, Moonbear

way to go

Hey Integral, do you realize that people are trying to give you the clap?

I'd run away very quickly if I were you. :)

:rofl: I wish...on both accounts! I'm working toward that salary, slowly but surely (actually, the one nifty thing I've discovered about academics is that although you start out grad school with a stipend that even WalMart workers would pity, it increases by leaps and bounds as you move up the ranks; when you get raises, they are substantial).

Though, as I was tracking down those phrases, I did realize I knew quite a few of them...apparently I can drink in many languages, I just never knew how to spell any of them! :biggrin: I'm character challenged too, so if any of them require diacritical marks to be correctly spelled (like umlauts), I can't include those (one of the few downsides to posting from a Mac; the codes just don't work).

So, when do we throw the retirement party for Integral and the inaugural ball for ZZ? Hey, wait, we still haven't had an inaugural ball for Gokul either! *chants* Party! Party! Party! Party! Party! Party!

I think it's the best time to hold a party for Integral because of his semi-retirement and his birthday!

Happy Birthday Integral!

Has no one said that Integral has been an integral part of PF? :approve:
Seriously, how can you pass that up? :biggrin:
