View Full Version : Have you read every one of Cecil's columns?

Was reading the thread (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?threadid=33448) about how people found the 'Dope, and I noticed quite a few people had found the site and read through the entire archives. I was kinda stunned, cause I thought I was the only one who was that fascinated/nuts.
So, who else? Fess up, I know you're out there.
P.S. I also read through the last 6 months of GQ message board posts. I think I've got a problem.

Nope, I haven't.
This is an IMHO thread (I think), but it'll sink before its splash is felt.
No. When I first found the site, you couldn't get a list of columns, so I just searched for "the" and read all of them that caught my interest. Probably about half of them or so.

Since Unca Cece may be watching, OF COURSE I've read every one of his columns.

I've read all the books as they came out, and also read the archive entries here that I wasn't able to recall from the books. I love finding out information I hardly ever need.

Yes, of course! Where else could I so readily fill my head with interesting but useless trivia?

Now ya need to buy the books. Until the 'net is truely wireless, this is your only option for carrying your reference source with ya everywhere.
I recommend a T-Shirt, too. They're damned nice and at $10, a real steal.

Yup, every one. Mailbag, too.

I've read every one in all the books... and always the online columns... in fact the last book I recognized almost all of them from having read them online. I haven't read through the archives.. I assumed everything in there had been in the books or at least the online columns. Can't claim to have read every mailbag column... but probably 90%.
