Is anyone else bothered by the fact that Threads I'm On shows your last 51 threads?

51 is wrong. It should be 50, or even 60 or 40 , or something-five at a push. For some reason, it being a something-1 annoys me because it's wrong. It irritates me everytime I click on Threads I'm On.

Am I a freak?
grin

Hecate Sat 09-Aug-08 12:39:21

Oh dear. That's a resounding YES Hec, you're a fecking Freak!!! grin

Isn't the number of threads that you are on within a certain timeframe. So basically you have the power to choose how many are there. Post on another 9 threads quickly and you'll be at 60. Then ration yourself to positing on a certain number of threads daily in order to kep a nice even number.

No LM it's capped at 51 threads.

Hecate Sat 09-Aug-08 12:43:39

No, 51 is the MAXIMUM! If you've been on more, it won't show. I think it is wrong that the cut off should be something-1!! It makes me fidget! grin

Yep Jura, maybe I should get out more, eh? grin blush

SlartyBartFast Sat 09-Aug-08 12:44:24

No you're not a freak. I have am booked on a flight next week, the departure time of which is 23.41. That is just wrong, wrong, wrong! Even if it does take off at that time, I would prefer it to be scheduled for 23.40 and be 1 minute late!

FabioFridgeFluffFrenzy Sat 09-Aug-08 12:46:17

SBF you are clearly not full of enough shit eloquence.
Some of us can do 51 threads in a day.

[proud]

Hecate Sat 09-Aug-08 12:47:17

Thank you! I hate that as well. My driving test was 10.44 hmm

That wound me up so much I really thought I'd fail! grin

SlartyBartFast Sat 09-Aug-08 12:47:49

i like that fabio grin -

SlartyBartFast Sat 09-Aug-08 12:48:22

10.44!!!
ridiculous

FabioFridgeFluffFrenzy Sat 09-Aug-08 12:49:59

My trains go at 9, 24, 39 and 54 minutes past the hour.
I regularly miss my train because I round up to a proper time and get there a minute late.

<unites in numerically obsessive twattery with Hecate>

Hecate Sat 09-Aug-08 12:50:01

I also hate 99p blush

This amzing bargain £4.99

IT'S A FECKING FIVER!!!! ARRGGGHHHHHH

Hecate Sat 09-Aug-08 12:50:36

your train leaves on time? shock

FabioFridgeFluffFrenzy Sat 09-Aug-08 12:53:20

The farking pound shop near my sells NOTHING for a pound. It's all 99p.
THey must be losing a bloody fortune, and giving themselves hernias with the run tothe bank for another £50 in coppers.

House prices.
£299,950.
FFS add another £50 and call it £330 grand, it won't break the bank.
AND we get not to hear people say "Yeah, it's on at two nine nine nine fifty" which makes me violent.

<needs to calm down>

Hecate Sat 09-Aug-08 13:02:18

A pound shop where everything is 99p? <head explodes>

No, don't calm down. If you calm down I'll be out here all on my own! grin

2point4kids Sat 09-Aug-08 13:12:43

I just had to go and check my threads i'm on and its at 34

You will just have to ration your posting and keep to a strict 50 within the time frame grin

FabioFridgeFluffFrenzy Sat 09-Aug-08 13:14:37

Note to self: £299,950 + £50 = £300,000, NOT £330 grand.

[dunce hat]

Hecate Sat 09-Aug-08 13:18:32

The question is, am I actually weird enough to do that?

I'm afraid we all know the answer. blush

VictorianSqualor Sat 09-Aug-08 13:29:41

Hecate, you are totally reasonable.
What weirdo doesn't round things up or down to the nearest 10? Or at the very least 5.
I'm assuming you could cope with 55?

Kewcumber Sat 09-Aug-08 13:32:20

Isn't 51 a prime number? I don't like prime numbers.

VictorianSqualor Sat 09-Aug-08 13:39:37

Yes, Kew, it is.
Prime numbers should be eradicated.
Maybe when we take over the world we can make them disappear completely.
Everything can be done in 5s and 10s.
So I would still be 25, as I can't be 27grin
But then I would have to round up to 30 next year, Hmmm.

Kewcumber Sat 09-Aug-08 13:52:47

Oh I don;t mind even numbers so much and that would give you the opportunity to always round down. PRime numbers shouldn't be allowed though, its just not right. Or 27 which in my book is a pseudo prime number.
