I'll preface my comments by acknowledging that perhaps you had a different intent than appears to me. But this note sounds a bit elitist to my ear.

So Pharm's excited - what's so wrong about that? You don't have to read a single one of those 1400 posts if you don't want to. That's the beauty of a forum like this - those who think I'm a jackass are entitled to skip over my useless observations and obsessive dog pictures as they wish. Or they can listen. I've learned a lot here, hopefully helped one or two people along the way and still have lots to learn. I'm now going to search out your posts and see what I can learn from you. That's what makes it "our" forum.

Happy camping.

I'd rather be a rivet master than a 2.5 million miler on Delta Airlines. For that, I get a Gold Medallion membership for the rest of my life. AND that ain't much for spending that many hours in their airplanes. MUCH rather have spent the time in SilverLeaf with my OWN bathroom, decent food, and my two basset hounds!

Don't nock the Santa suit until ya try it. Ya'd be surprised how many Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders have shopping lists. However, I normally forget what they want by the time they crawl off my lap. And, for some reason they don't want to hear about my 19'er Airstream

Me too, retired a year ago with 4.5 Million on Delta and 3.7 Million on USAirways. Gave as many as I could to kids, nieces and nephews and many were about to expire so Millions went to the Fisher House and to Make-A- Wish. Both airlines said if donated to those and a number of other like minded charities the miles would never expire.

Never plan on flying again, we've got our silver bullet and hopefully it never gets airborne.

My Best

Bud

Just reading this thread made me think of the irony: The true rivet-masters of the world grew up in the Industrial Age and were long gone before computers came along. My dad set millions of rivets in B727s years ago and hasn't read (or posted on) an Internet forum in his life. Meanwhile, some of the Airforums rivet-master greats could theoretically have never bucked a river in their life. Perhaps the term should be "irreversible aluminitis". Whatever the case I thought it was funny, but in no ways do I mean to diminish the contributions of those who post here. I've learned so many valuable things through this forum simply because people keep the communications strong. Thanks to everyone who makes this a fun place to learn!

You can edit your status if you don't want to track AirForums rivets. Once I hit Rivet Master (I've never bucked a rivet in my life) I edited mine to read "Figment of my Imagination" because I am a figment of my own imagination.

To paraphrase René Descartes…
I think, therefore I think I am.
