It's tough to follow such an eloquent Fiftieth post but with this the Fifty-First post in the increasingly long posts thread I shall endeavour to do so.

But first I would like to thank Stealth for setting the bar so high, and causing me to reach down into reserves of loquatiousness that I didn't even realize that I had.

Sorry I almost missed your post, Abin Quank. Good thing I looked on page two.

Thank you for the kind words. I do hope that someday my writing talents will make me money. I dream of being like J.K. Rowling, entertaining millions of people with my imaginings.

We've reached fifty-two posts.

So, the real question at hand is why all these threads were allowed to lie fallow. I know the theory that they will grow bigger and stronger if allowed to do so, but they seem to have withered on the vine more than they've come back and flourished. I don't like that.

Fifty-three.

It has been almost fifty-four fortnights since this thread was last visited.

Oops! Eryk Davis Ester has correctly exposed me for the slacker I am. I should have reminded myself what the proper rules were beforehand.

Via this edit, I hope to remedy my blunder in terms acceptable to Eryk and anyone else affected.

Kent Shakespeare seems to have forgotten the whole point of this thread, which is that each post should contain one more word than the previous post. His last post contains only twelve words rather than fifty-four. This one, by contrast, contains fifty-five.

Or, it will, once I add in this sentence with thirteen more words.

So, if I understand this correctly, what you guys are telling me is that in order to post in this thread I must compose a meaningful message containing exactly 57 words.

Is that a correct assumption?

If it is I fail to see any compelling reason to put the time and effort into composing such a message.

This weekend my son and I went to Atlanta to see the Chinese Terracotta army and Tutankhamun and the Golden Pharoahs. I like the Army better, and although, as most exhibits do, they ended in gift shops, the Army one was much less expensive.
Then we went to Oxford Comics and Fantasy Records. A very good weekend.

I'm sitting in a hotel room in Scarborough Maine, right now, waiting for a delivery of Chinese food. I changed jobs last year. I still work for the same company, but now instead of testing our product, Nuclear Submarines, I go to the vendors we buy products from and inspect those products before they get shipped to my company.

Ohmygod! Gramps said I should like post in this thread cuz' I like never say anything in like three words or less when I can use a dozen or more. But, I gotta admit I kinda don't get the point of this thread. Is it to use like a lot of word to say nothing? Or like the other way around? (61)

I know you've all been waiting for this thread to return! Thus, I am bumping it, with the hope that others will have fun adding to the thread! Just remember that each post should contain one more word than the post before!

It is helpful to put the number of words in your post somewhere in the post! This one has sixty-two!

Oh my gosh you mean I have to put sixty-three words in this post? I don't know how I'm ever going to do that!!
I should probably put together some thoughts on really important current events going on around the world, or maybe give my opinion on new songs being played on the radio these days.

This is going to be so difficult!

For the next post, I believe this groovy classic Beatles song is in order:

When I get older, losing my hair, many years from now
Will you still be sending me a valentine, birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I'd been out 'til quarter to three, would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me when I'm sixty-four?

"'65 Love Affair" was a song by Paul Davis that hit the Billboard chart in 1981. It peaked at No. 6 for two weeks.

I was never a big fan of Davis's, but "'65 Love Affair" is a catchy ditty that still goes through my head occasionally.

'65 love affair
We wasn't gettin' nowhere
But we didn't care
It was a crazy
'65 love affair

This is one thread where I can post from one of the old songs that I like:

Now you go through Saint Looey
Joplin, Missouri,
and Oklahoma City is mighty pretty.
You see Amarillo,
Gallup, New Mexico,
Flagstaff, Arizona.
Don't forget Winona,
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino.

Won't you get hip to this timely tip:
when you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66.

Yay, Rocky! I thought of that song when I saw 66 coming up but didn't have time to post it.

I appreciate the appreciation, Legion Tracker, but there is one little detail that you seem to have left out. Don't get me wrong. I certainly appreciate the accolades. We all get way too few. I definitely like the fact that I am not the only one around here who appreciates music from the pre-rock era. But I think you were supposed have 67 words in that post.

"In '68, Julie was Johnny's date..."

That's a lyric from Sweet's "The Six-Teens," a song about the death of Sixties idealism and the gloominess which followed in the Seventies. Not that it's likely the guys in Sweet cared about that stuff. They didn't even write the song. Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn did. The members of Sweet did write the delightful "Fox on the Run." Pop bliss.

"Summer of '69" is one of the few Bryan Adams songs I like. The song evokes the nostalgia of starting a rock band that falls apart when life intervenes.

Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit
Joey got married
Shoulda known we'd never get far


Ironically, Adams, born in November 1959, was only nine years old during the summer of 1969. That's artistic license for you.

According to heavy metal expert Martin Popoff, the year Nineteen Seventy saw the birth of the genre through the release of three crucial albums: Black Sabbath's "Black Sabbath", Uriah Heep's "Very 'Eavy, Very 'Umble", and Deep Purple's "Deep Purple in Rock." Controversially, Popoff disregards the early Led Zeppelin albums, as he seems to feel that Zep didn't come into their own until the middle of the decade. Personally, I agree.

According to Wikipedia (which I use from time to time). As 71 is the least prime factor of one more than the product of the first twenty-two terms of the EuclidMullin sequence, it is the twenty-third term. Also, 71 is the largest number which occurs as a prime factor of an order of a sporadic simple group.

Not quite sure what the Euclid-Mullin sequence is (Hey, maybe Wikipedia would know)

It has been almost six years since I posted to this thread. A lot has changed since then. Some old friends have stopped coming, but new friends have shown up. I am not sure if I should be getting so sappy for such a fun based thread. So for the remainder of the thread I will just write fun words.

Zany. Booby. Titmouse. Lake Titicaca. Fandango. Alabaster. Kalamazoo. And that is seventy-three words.

'74 was the year I was born!

But right now, I'm thinking of the posts in this thread around the late 40s and early 50s, where I had my very first Legion World interaction with the now-deceased Abin Quank -- a very pleasant one indeed, and it helped me feel right at home, which meant a lot to me then (I had just joined Legion World,) and still means a great deal to me.
