I had planned on making this my 3000th post, alas this is actually number 3002... (there was a running thread, rife with juvenile genital humor... I could not resist... to know me, is to understand.)

By coincidence, I became an ATS member 6 years and 2 days ago. Weird how things work out sometimes...

I am not nearly as prolific as other members, with just an average of 500 posts per year... but, truth be told, if I posted every stupid idea that popped into my head... I would have been banned years ago. My best decisions usually involve me keeping my big mouth shut... as a world class smarta$$, this has probably prevented my murder. More than once.

I have a tendency to use humor in my posts, often excessive. This isn't because I don't care about the issues at hand... it's often because I care more than I should. The world is a brutish place... laughing at it, makes it far less depressing. If you disagree with my views, but get a good laugh... I'm quite OK with that.

There are many ATS members that I have grown to respect, and admire over the past 6 years. Sadly, a few of those folks have passed on. I keep their families in my thoughts and prayers.

There are a few folks on here that irritate the crap out of me... and I love you for it. Open debates keep the mind sharp... and we have many master-debaters here...

The true beauty of ATS, is that it is one of the few sites left that promotes open and free discussion. No one even cares that I am a white guy... which is oddly refreshing.

To the ATS owners, staff and mods I say "thank you, so much my friends!", and I promise to never sue your collective butts for my therapy expenses.


Now, to my thoughts on toast. No raisins... ever. I have said enough...

I hereby raise my beer to all of ATS! Thanks to all of you... I truly mean that


I hope to make a similar post 6 years from now, if we all live through the "doom porn", that is...

God bless,

Madmac

Thanks my friend

Hey, thanks to you, Springer and the entire ATS staff for keeping this place open-minded, yet respectable. It's a true rarity in this day and age. You guys should be very proud of the job you have done here. Thanks again

Wow... thanks for the nightmares... I may never sleep again.


Truth be told, I hope reality spins off and gives us all a great ending. What more could one ask for?



Edit to add: I wanted to wish us all a happy ending... but, that could be seen as both salacious and incriminating.

I try to be jovial, and tend to have nervous laughter to lighten the load a bit too. I won't disagree about laughter👍😊

Levity is paramount. That's what us Mountaineer fans keep telling ourselves.

I promised the Lord, that I would happily die when WVU wins a national championship.

On a sad note, I may now be immortal...

So where are your thoughts on toast, as advertised in the title?
White bread or brown?
Marmalade or jam?

Ummm...I beg to differ...well no...actually I won’t beg...I just don’t agree with your assessment...

You see...this place is rife with master-baiters...that’s right...

Hook...line...and sinker...

Master-debaters...no...not so much...

Toast is situational.

Steak and egg breakfast? White or wheat, lightly toasted with butter. No damned raisins.

Steak for dinner? Texas toast. No damned raisins.

Had all of your teeth pulled? Melba toast. No damned raisins.

Feeling frisky with my wife? French toast (of course), and no damned raisins.

Now, I'm going to get toasted... and No. Damned. Raisins.
