Turn your back on this thread for a milli-second to set yourself up on Facebook and VOOMPA and these opportunists with pretentions to be LAST spring out of the woodwork.

Sheesh.

Let it be hereby known that despite now maintaining a presence elsewhere, I am still going to be LAST here.

LAST! LASTIDDY LAST LAST LAST!

....and, having now said that, it is time to turn our attention to a particular pretender to the LAST throne.

This individual has assumed various disguises over time in his efforts to sneak in after everyone else.

He has battled myself and a wide range of others in being LAST, even unto actually breaking the thread for quite a period of time in a vain attempt to dissuade us from pursuing our illustrious goal.

Along the way he brought much delight and intellect to our musings here, and for that I appreciate his commaraderie in this quest, albeit that he will be ultimately dissapointed in the outcome.

Yes fellow LASTers, I raise a glass to the thread's robot, our own Marvin, whose birthday is happening about now, plus or minus the ever present time difference.

Join me now as we recite the customary wassail on such occassions:

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy BIRTHDAY dear Maaaaaarrrrrrrvin (the Parnoid Robot),
Happy birthday to you!

Have a good one!

Wys

P.S. Sorry, you're not LAST. But I know that's just for now.

wys, you will neither here nor there nor anywhere (one fish two fish red fish blue fish, i do not like green eggs and ham) be LAST

as i am too lazy to check the LAST page prior to this, i don't know if i've already wished our resident android a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

so consider it done, now, and consider me LAST

which i am

you sure were last, SG!

Happy Birthday, dear Neo!

Happy Birthday, Marvin|PA!

...and cyn was LAST, for a flicker of time.

but she wasn't the LAST LAST

I have it on good authority that cyn can't be LAST at the moment because of a TypeKey screwup.

Which means, if I can successfully knobble SG, I'll have the thread to myself.

Knobble?! ... sounds kinky. is it anything like a lasting kniss?

eek! it posted.

Loving best wishes to the
Android on the occasion of his
Supercalifragilistic
Terrific Birthday!

*leaves refreshments*

LMAO! That's what you get for trusting that technology will always fail you. It sometimes works just when you don't want it to.

And I gather our Android is off having his teeth rearranged. No news of him in the LAST few days, but it doesn't sounds good.

androids have teeth?

(i'm not feeling particularly witty at the moment, so i'll just say...LAST)

it wouLd appeAr that they do, huh? ..have teeth. it's so Sad that They don't seem to have .. y'know .. um, ..fruits.

happy birthday marvin, let your cerebrations last as long as time itself!

LAST!

Just sayin'

wys, wys, wys...

you didn't really think that you'd be LAST, did you?

after that prior unsuccessful attempt at "knobbling" me, you should have known better

LAST

;p

Knobble you?

Moi?!?

Mais non! Knibble perhaps....

DERNIER! (as the French would say)

today i thought i would be LAST

under a certain circumstance in so-called "real life"

aLAS(T), it was not to be

so i shall take comfort in the knowledge that at LeAST i can be LAST, here

aLAS(T) it was not be so for long....

But at LAST you can join us in song...

...perhaps this one: LAST Song Ever?

Wys missed the LAST rhyme: Was it too clever?

Probably not. CRS has me missing a lot of things these days.

But its been a while since we LAST saw Dave D. I wonder what he's up to?

in summary:
aLAS(T) it was not be so for long....
But at LAST you can join us in song...
...perhaps this one: LAST Song Ever?
Wys missed the LAST rhyme: Was it too clever?

so much for the sing-along!

*Feels old at LAST*

wys, you may be feeling old, whomever that may be, but you still aren't LAST

What, me worry? LAST....

I haven't been around for quite some time. What the heck is the green flower thingee?

It's gone now - oh well - LAST.

oh!

dave, you saw that green flower thingy too?!?

i saw it when i posted my LAST comment, but then...when my LAST post showed up here, it was gone

huh

no matter, i'm still LASTer than you ;p

and now it's a blue flower thingy, but i'm still LAST

No you're not - LAST.

I agree with both of you. You're both not LAST.
Glad that's settled.

Say what? Glad to see the MBE LP honorific is still alive and well. I knew it would LAST.

I usually read it as "mmm-belp." It sounds like a noise made after a hearty and delicious meal.

Well, that LAST set of comments are all very well, but we're missing the point here - *I'M* LAST.

sorry, but no

LASTer LASTer LASTer

'mmm-belp' was that annoying song by hanson?

ALL Hanson songs were annoying if I recall correctly.

And sorry SG: LASTest LASTest LASTest!

*snorks* at insom, as always!

apparently Dave D has given up here, which is good for him, as I, neither dave, nor insom, nor wys, am LASTester LASTester LASTester

yes, that is a word, as i just made it up

last

dear, sweet marvin

you may be delusional, but you're not LAST

I'm rubber and you're glue.
Whatever you said last
bounces off me
and sticks to you!

hope everyone has a blast on thanksgiving!

*rips off the LAST that is stuck on SG, and slaps it on his own chest*

Now we're clear about who's sticking to being LAST, let me also wish all my Mercan friends a happy Thanksgiving! Eat lots. Sleep. Drive safe!

ouch, wys!!!

i ate
i slept
i also drove fast
and now here i am again
LAST LAST LAST

You were last for all of three minutes! Better luck next time.

*snork at Marv!*

That was pretty effective, stalking her post at 3am in the morning like that.

Still, doesn't matter because *I'M* LAST again!

wow, three whole minutes

*note to self: place more duct tape over the spy cam lens*

LAST

heh heh heh. She thinks that's the spy cam. I've hidden it in the LAST place she'll look!

merry lastmas, everyone!!!

LAST but not least - happy holidays all...

LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST

I had some LAST minute catching up to do for the LAST LAST of this LAST decade. But now we can all be resolved at LAST and lay this matter to rest.

LAST

(still LAST)

Marvin lasted from the last decade into the current. Too bad I had to come along so his record didn't last.

Well, of course, there is still the whole debate about when the next decade (like the new Millenium) actually starts - is it 2010 or 2011?

Of course at this point, having been beaten to the punch for 2010, I'll be arguing that we haven't seen the LAST of the decade for another 11 and a bit months...

I call bull on that LAST argument, wys. There's no way the new decade starts in 2011. That's like turning 30 and saying it's part of your 20's. As much as you want it to be true, that decade is over.

you people can argue over which decade it is all you want

i'm still LAST

...or you *were*, I can argue AND be LAST at the same time!

However, the problem for me, Marv, is that my heart really isn't behind the argument. As the project manager for Y2K for a major Federal Government Department, I'm here to tell you that all the world's computers knew the new millenium started on 01/01/00, not 01/01/01. And there were WAY more computers than people that thought it started on 01/01/01.

hmmmm...LAST time i was here i was LAST, but wys snuck in and tried to claim the LAST title

unsuccessfully, as i am, again, LAST

*turns on the radio and sneaks back out*

*loves S'girl, but cannot let her have the LAST word*

*lasts*

Christobol is at it again:
http://thechristoblog.com

last?

no, insom, you're not LAST

You and insom have something in common then, sg!

leaving a lasting impression?

aw, that's sweet, insom

i think

and now i am LAST again

Last.

LASTer.

Post-moativersary last.

We keep getting email from people, some of them irate, who want this blog to fix the clock, because apparently this blog is off by an hour. In response, we would like to say that: (1) We don't know how to fix the damn clock, and (2) If you are relying on this blog for the accurate time, or anything else that involves accuracy, then you are on the wrong blog. This blog is about issues. Thank you.

The time at the tone is eleventeen hundred hours centigrade. BEEP.

You tell'em, Dave! Give 'em hell! :)
