    I thought I would use my 1400th post to look at a phenomena that afflicts quite a few here, namely PAD or Posting Addiction Disorder. There are many theories on the causes of this malady. Some say it is caused by the incredible boredom of work life, others have put forward the novel theory that its a way of ignoring your wife without the urge to build a new swimming pool with her as part of the foundations. The 'disorder' can take on a variety forms such as compulsive discussion of one brand or tobacco whilst advancing the theory that all other blends taste like 'Swan Farts' or Owl Pellets. Other symptoms can include obsessions about one style of pipe to the general exclusion of everything else which has the effect of generating long turgid picture laden posts. Other give away signs of P.A.D are the manic personality and scary eyes that the poor afflicted soul has in the final stages of advanced P.A.D. There is no agreed cure for P.A.D however it is thought it might be a mild form of Aspergers syndrome but should you encounter one of these disturbed individuals just nod sagely and smile whilst shuffling off to the next exhibit/member etc and inoculate yourself with a couple of large scotches.

    A leggy thread? Perhaps. I just felt the driving need to contribute absolutely nothing even remotely germane to the subject.

    It's beyond my control,
    out of my grasp.

    I'm driven,
    nay,
    compulsed,
    to post obsessive minutia,
    and,
    I cannot stop myself.

    For instance,
    at this very moment
    a force compels me
    to post up some
    Medieval Welsh Poetry!

    Yr aelwyt honn a’e goglyt gawr,
    Mwy gordyfnassei ar y llawr
    Med a meduon yn eiriawl.

    Yr aelwyt honn, neus kud dynat,
    Tra vu vyw y gwercheitwat...

    Yr aelwyt honn, neus cud glessin.
    Ym myw Owein ac Elphin,
    Berwassei y pheir breiddin.

    Yr aelwyt honn, neus cud kallawdyr llwyt.
    Mwy gordyfnassei am y bwyt
    Cledyual dyual diarswyt.

    Yr aelwyt honn, neus cud kein vieri.
    Coet kynneuawc oed idi.
    Gordyfnassei Reget rodi.

    Yr aelwyt honn, neus cud drein.
    Mwy gordyfnassei y chyngrein
    Kymwynas kyweithas Owein.

    Yr aelwyt honn, neus cud myr.
    Mwy gordyfnassei babir
    Gloew, a chyuedeu kywir.

    Yr aelwyt honn, neus cud tauawl.
    Mwy gordyfnassei ar yr llawr
    Med a medwon yn eiryawl.

    Yr aelwyt honn, neus clad hwch.
    Mwy gordyfnassei elwch
    Gwyr, ac am gyrn kyuedwch.

    Yr aelwyt honn, neus clad kywen.
    Nys eidigauei anghen
    Ym myw Owein ac Vryen.

    Yr ystwffwl hwnn, a’r hwnn draw.
    Mwy gordyfnassei amdanaw
    Elwch llu a llwybyr arnaw.

    Surprise Sparks hasn't chimed in on this thread. He's racked up more posts in as little time than anyone I recall in any board. And thats not a bad thing either, I love reading his opinions, thoughts and experiences as well as others.

    An active board is a joy to be a part of.

    How come, I use the simple word "creepy" and get dogged for it, but everyone else can spout off all sorts of things?

    Well, if this isn't just an obvious use of forum space to raise posting numbers..... glad I got in on it to!

    Til shade is gone, til water is gone. Into the shadow with teeth bared,
    Screaming defiance with the last breath, to spit in Sightblinder's eye on the Last Day.

    Mondays rank highest, according to assorted scientific polls, in number of posts containing drivel, inanity, irrelevance, nocturnal emissions. Ranked very low in humor so this thread is certainly a welcome distraction. Although, since I am retired, I had no idea that is was Monday until condor mentioned it.

    I was avoiding it so as to not be accused of post padding. Though I suppose that is better than pre padding...

    And thanks for the compliment Andrew... I was worried at first read that it was not a compliment at all, lol.

    I like pipes and tobacco. Do you watch football or not? Are you chasing Esoterica blends? Mason jars or jelly jars? Can you smoke in your abode or no?

    can you and me make sure the mods don't bust up hour thread because we don't youse good english with korrect spellin and grammer?
