I just wanted to give you acknowledgement for this. A week later.

The WHO just added gaming addiction to their disease list. Also sex addiction. While they're at it, how about THREAD KILLING ANXIETY DISORDER.

It's up there with "I posted something on Facebook and it didn't get a single like in two hours so now I have to delete it" syndrome.

I've never killed a thread
Though I have watched several die
No, I've never killed a thread
and I've never told a lie.

Was it something i said?

Beckdawrek 07-18-2018 09:19 PM

I could tell a long, convoluted life story about the Lil'wrekker or my Siamese cats. Maybe add a digression about my health. This thread will die in record speed.
ETA just say 'when'.

I once killed a thread in Reno, just to watch it die.

I predict this will be the longest running thread in the history of the Dope as people keep trying to make the 'last' post. :D

I was afraid of posting in this thread lest I become the threadkiller, which would be very bad. But it doesn't look like there's any chance of that happening now. None whatsoever.

This is exactly what happens to me. It's usually self-evident that there's nothing left to be said about the topic. And nobody wants to contradict my posts, because I am so bitter and vengeful.

Beckdawrek 07-24-2018 04:17 PM

No one is a killer like me.

You have to ask me questions and I will answer you.
Starting with the next post......
(I am waiting)

Bullitt 07-24-2018 04:22 PM

Why are you such an effective killer?

swampspruce 07-26-2018 09:52 AM

But can you make a decent pecan pie?

ISiddiqui 07-26-2018 09:58 AM

It's probably better than going into an active thread, posting a very thoughtful reply to the OP, and then the thread just goes on with no one responding or commenting on your reply.

Beckdawrek 07-26-2018 10:02 AM

Oh, honey pie is my expertise.
Pecan
Coconut
Chocolate
Apple
Peach
Cobblers (many )
Custard.
Key lime
Lemon,
Cherry Cheese
Frozen pudding pie,
Chicken pot pie
Cheeseburger pie
Chess
Name it, I can make it.

burpo the wonder mutt 07-26-2018 10:37 AM

My friends,

We are gathered here today to pay final respects to our honored thread. But it should be noted that this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new thread; a thread that our beloved comrade gave its life to protect and nourish. It did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate its profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of this thread, I can only say this: of all the threads I have encountered in my travels, this was the most…thready.

running coach 07-26-2018 11:47 AM

No argument from me; pie is pie. Chocolate, please! Or coconut.

Beckdawrek 07-26-2018 11:33 PM

I think pie should be in the bill of rights for every man, woman or child.
Wait... I take that back, kids don't need pie.

Lucas Jackson 07-27-2018 08:54 AM

Bill of rights? What about Tom of rights, Jack or rights or Steve of rights?

Cherry with a slice of old cheddar melty on top or Key Lime for me; or maybe my personal creation, mudbottom pecan pie wherein you layer the bottom of the pie shell with melted dark chocolate with a pinch of chili powder and then pour the ooey gooey goodness of the pecan filling.
