    Okay, I just learned how to check which post was the nth post here so just out of curiosity I punched in my birthday. 02/06/69
    What's yours?

    Do you suppose it reveals something about my inner nature or destiny? Perhaps you have discovered the PF oracle?

    I DO have an obsession with going to Joshua Tree to view the Milky Way before I die.

    :rofl: This is turning out pretty funny. tribdog's post fits him too well! :biggrin: Here's mine, which is not nearly so fun.

    Though, considering I'm completely inept with latex, maybe this is fitting afterall. :rofl:

    Some technical information would be useful. Unlike you, I haven't learned how to do that yet.

    Just click on his link, and change the numbers at the end to reflect your birthdate rather than his.

    Mine sucks. It's a one-line crackpot post by a guy that's been banned.

    Interestingly, it's not possible to go lower than the number 100, so no way to call up the first post. The earliest I can find is Kerrie asking if, after the last server changeover, we'd still have the same web address.

    The worst horoscope ever :-(.

    Sweet, It depends which way you do it
    16/08/89 or 08/16/87

    I don't understand either of mine. They both suck.

    Hah, nice way to find people's ages.
    Mine is a crackpot claiming to have a proof that god doesn't exist, but doesn't share it with others because apparently it's too complex.
    Yeah, same old sh*t, I bet many others will get the same.

    Now you will understand better that I am rejecting every uncertainty
    approach. Uncertainty was created because there was a human
    measuring problem which Heisenberg tackled. But when people started
    to project his measuring solution for the explanation of the
    cosmological events or to explain the fundaments of consciousness
    systems ... it's too much. Did "uncertainty" became a CULT?

    Mine kinda suck, one is someone discussing the photoelectric effect, the other is someone who said the bush would be drafting people into service right now.

    Someone should turn this into a game. We could find random posts by inputing random numbers and then vote on which ones are the funniest. Kind of like the photo contest.

    Mine's a crank theory too, in the archived theory development forum. Fortunately, that forum was abolished long before I joined PF!

    Mine is just someone thanking someone for a link and doesn't even mention what it's for. :frown:

    I think I got the post that was meant for dduardo or penguino.

    Mine was hilarious. Best joke I've heard in quite some time and yet really gets to the heart of the human condition.

    Well, tell us the joke, dammit!

    Mine is pretty cryptic. I'm not sure I completely understand it:

    Just my luck. Mine was probably a post by someone like Saint - someone who not only was banned, but had every post they ever made deleted from the system.

    Or, in a different format:

    Well, well!!?? That was years ago and we've stayed tuned all this time and there's still no follow-up!!! Did you get hit by a bus??!! :frown:

    Let me try, yet again:

    Meh, at least it's upbeat and positive.

    I'll try, yet again:
    Dang! Now that's a dilemma! I'd gladly make up a date for my birthday and a post to go with it for a horoscope like that!
