That's it. Your band can no longer be my band's friend on MySpace.

Kidding.

:D

But really...football is one of God's three greatest gifts to men. The other two being music and women (although that last one also comes as a curse ;) :rolleyes: )

Still kidding...maybe.

Myxology and myself both tried to make the claim in the Uggies thread that we were the ultimate thread killers. Well, I did some searching around and found out the truth of the matter. Since I had to search by user name and view the 500 most recent threads by each one, I only did a few people. Here were the results!

Threads killed by users in their last 500 threads in which they posted:

OFC-38
myxology-40
NWBasser-54 (but he only had 391 threads in which he had posted)
JoeT13Bob9-57
Thorn-62

So, I do have to conceid my title as threadkiller to Thorny, but I have to say that I truly believe in NWBasser to take over that title once he has 500 threads! (Well on track to do so of course :D)

Sorry for being so pointless and random :p

I THOROUGLY DISAGREE WITH THIS STATEMENT!

I dont think Thorn should be awarded the thread killer award, I think that in order to calculate an accurate thread kill ratio one must not only take the ammount of threads the person has killed, but the ammount in which they have participated.

I propose that in order to calculate an accurate ratio the following formula be applied:

Thread Kill Ratio (TKR) = Amount of threads Killed / Amount of threads participated in * 100

By the aplication of this formulae we can attain a far more percise calculation of the percentage of threads a person has killed.

By these means, we can see that both Thorn and OFC can not be a part of this group, as they both have participated in far many more threads than what they have killed.

One example... OFC's TKR would be:

(OFC)TKR=38/500*100

(OFC)TKR=7,6%

Meaning: Out of all the threads OFC has participated in, he has only killed 7,6% of them, while, if we look at NWBasser's ratio, it would be more along the lines of:

(NWB)TKR=54/391*100

(NWB)TKR=13,81%

Meaning, NWB has a far greater (almost double) kill thread ratio than OFC, making him a far greater thread killer. Another detail, mentioning the fallibility of this method, is that the forum only records the last 500 threads, meaning that OFC most likeley has a far lower TKR, but without the record I cant be sure how much lower.

Now, to see who of those mentioned before was the greatest thread killer:

(OFC)TKR = 7,6%*
(NWB)TKR = 13,81%
(MYX)TKR = 8%*
(JOE)TKR = 11,4%*
(THRN)TKR = 12,4%*

HUZZAH!

As I had forseen, NWBasser had the greatest TKR, Making him the official greatest thread killer! Congratulations!

* These percentages are based on the calculation of the TKR using the forums 500 thread maximum record, meaning the results ought to be lower, but once again, it's impossible to say how much lower without having a full threads record. NWB's TKR is the only 100% accurate one, since it's based on the actual ammount of threads he has participated in (which can be seen since he has not reached the 500 thread record yet).

(No more coffee for me).

Doc, I'm impressed with your methodology and honoured by your results.:D

Thanks man, you made my day.

I concede happily to my friend!:)

hahahaha Doc, you crack me up. Or you're on crack. Not entirely sure which it is.

You know what rules? I'm still #4! It was meant to be. :D

Man those are some heavy calculations for a bass forum :D Heh.. Math never really was my thing

You didn't think we were going to leave the counting up to a stinky, did you? :D

Pretty good Doc, but I do have to disagree that the numbers would be very greatly scewed by taking a larger survey of total posts by the users. Those kills were found in the previous 500 threads participated in BY EACH USER in the thread kill survey, not in the previous 500 for the forum. I first searched my previous 500 threads posted in. Then I did a seach for Myx's previous 500 and so on and so forth. (Remember how I had too much time? Lol!)

500 threads is a large enough test and it's likely that even if you went out to each users total threads in which they posted that those percentages would stay close to the same. Therefore, I agree that NWBasser is a greater threadkiller (as I said, he is totally on track to overtake myself and Thorny!) but in fairness, Thorn has still killed the most with over 500 threads participated in.

I think that if you look at it that way, NWB isn't even eligable for the contest because he hasn't reached the point of getting accurate results because the survey size is still too small. :D

OFC, you seem like you're getting eager to kill this one...

Oh no ya don't! Lol!

No dude, you're not following me here... Using this method, NWB is the only one who has accurate results. Since all the rest have reached the maximum thread record, there is no way of knowing how many threads they have participated in, meaning that we are calculating their ratio based on a set number which isnt the true number of threads participated in.

Since both OFC and Thorn have participated in far more threads than the 500 we are using to calculate the ratio, the ratio is actually quite smaller.

By the time NWB reaches the 500 thread record, he will have killed many more (assuming the ratio will remain constant) than the few Thorn and OFC have killed respectiveley.

I mean, out of the alleged 500 in which OFC has participated in, he has only killed 38. If NWB mantains his ratio, by the time he reaches the 500 he will have killed...[(500*54)/391] = 69,05 threads!

See what I mean?

I got what you're saying. I agree that it's NW based on the percentages. I also think though that the longer a poster is here, the less and less likely they are to kill a thread. I think that the reason for OFC being the lowest killer of the 5 is that whenever he says something, someone else responds with something to the effect of "OFC, you're soooo wise!" or "thank you for changing my life with your post, OFC!" :D

I'm not poking fun at you OFC, just observing your greatness! :)

I predict that the longer NW is here, the lower the percentage will become.

I take back my original assessment (sorry Thorny!). I declare NWBasser the ULTIMATE THREAD KILLER!!!! (do I even possess such authority to declare so? Maybe Thorn and NWB should fight for it!) Thorny has still killed the MOST threads with more than 500 threads posted in though!

this thread lives on...

....and on ;)

And on . . . :D

i was going to add somthing useless and random too, but you guys's post got to long and i cant keep up.

oh wait. that was pointless!

BASS.

:p I gave him the crown, what more do you people want from me!!!!!!!!!!:D

Seriously, I kill other things too, so if I don't get the thread killing award, I'm gonna eventually get the something else killing award! It's how I roll! :cool::D

I say we just go ahead sticky this fucker, because I don't see it dying anytime soon.
Probabally going to set a forum record for most pages.
;)
:D

I lost my car keys. There's a beer opener on it, a car alarm thingy, and a tuner that I let twangers borrow.... I know I had them this morning...

Where is this thread going, and why is it in a handbasket:confused::confused:

......So then I says to the guy: "If this is the house of pancakes, how come I can't eat the walls????......

bwahahahahaha.....Heavy that was funny!

Myx, lemme use my psychic powers to find your keys.............

Boolaboolaboogieboogielalalalala.............Where are myxo's keys!.......I'm seeing them in a couch cushion.........no ..........wait,,,,,,,,,,,,they are in the clothes hamper................oh well, i'm losing range..You are simply too far away..................

Myx, look in the fridge.
One time I lost my keys, and they were in the fridge.

Dude I know! It's wild!

Then what about that Criss Angel dude? That floating off of the top floor of the Pyramid in Vegas? That guys a total freak! There has to be a major, major trick involved in that b.s.! I don't buy it! Levitation is maybe possible at best when you are trippin on shrooms !:D

theres only one explanation.....sorcery \m/ :cool:

:eek: That is exactly what my sigoth says! Sorcery! EEK

Chris Angel drives me nuts.

You tube has a lot of video footage revealing some of the stuff he does but I don't see too much that is concrete..........The short levitation trick from the floor to a chair etc, he does with fake pant leg and shoe.......The big one? I dunno! Magnetics is my guess!

Oops I may have just screwed up! I think we actually have a Topic Heavy P!..LOL

Criminy! I go away to play my bass for the weekend and come back to this? Wow.

Now you kids play nice.

BTW - If you observe closely, you can easily figure out a lot Chris Angel's tricks.

I'm just sayin'.

Oh, and before I completely forget, as I'm prone to doing, thanks for the crown Thorn!:D
That thing would be perfect to wear to a GWAR show! I love it!

You know, everytime you make a useless post to try and keep a thread alive because you want to be the threadkiller...god kills a kitten, shrinks your genetalia and creates another idiot twanger and/or useless screamer.

Just thought you all should know that...

Heathens.

HAHA..........GWAR Crown would rock NWB! And you are welcomed! You deserve a crown dude!:)

Bass Pantheranther! Do you realllllllllllly think that kind of thing would stop me from attempting to kill threads?..HA I say to you my dear sir that I adore, but all the same, you talkin to a girl that wades around in swamp water, and beheads water moccasins! Ain't gonna scare "THORN"........nope! You talkin to a woman that beat the living crap out of a guy twice her size, knockin his teeth out of his head! (sheriff offered me a job!:p) Nothing is gonna scare me except hurricanes and tornado's, and possibly a very large apelike creature coming through my bedroom window in the middle of the night while I am asleep and wake up without my gun or sword.......Yep, that would frighten me pretty much!:)

Do you own a sword, Thorn? Wouldn't surprise me. :D

Do you live by Boggy Creek?

The Legend of Boggy Creek scared me pretty bad when I was a kid.

LOL...Yeah Boggy Creek be scarey! No, Boggy Creek is in Florida I think! I live on Contraband Bayou, where Jean LaFitte the pirate, hid his gold and hid from the Spanish armada! Bayou's are narrow inlets of water with beautiful wildlife and a lot of Oaks with Spanish Moss hanging, and Weeping Willows....Plenty of fishing too! :)

We have been down to the swamps often and done some crawfishing, that sort of thing, and I always managed to find the water mocassins...I hate SNAKES! So, I chop their heads off and scream at em!..:D Hard part is seein the gators swimmin for ya!..:eek:

!!!!!!!

LOL...Joe, I'm really a very mellow and peaceful person most of the time, but I was raised to be aware that other's are not always peace loving! I have to be alone a lot. I live in a mixed neighborhood of the good, the bad, and me, the ugly, and I've had several years of Martial Arts training...Never hurts to know how to protect yourself! My daddy raised us by putting a hand gun in our hands when we were very young........We shot of course, SNAKES, cause there are so many poisonous ones down here. Learning to shoot, slice, dice, hit, punch, grapple, and RUN like heck, was a part of our growing up!

We took Jujitsu, Ninjutsu, and Hoshin........We are licensed to teach Hoshin Tao Chi Kung.......I am very good with a sword! :)

Here is a pic of my three favorite swords!
