How many topics will Savage post this year?

Anyone want to place bets? My guess is: 58,000.

I have only seen lynxes in the wild twice. The first time it was a mother and cub pair, the second time there were three lynxes (presumably siblings - they were not very large) together and I would suggest that could be called a trio. So much for being solitary creatures. However, the internet tells me there is indeed a collective noun: a chain (who would have guessed?).

Challenge accepted!!!

And I give you this:

There is a thread here in which a group of protesters offer to "chain" themselves together to bring attention to their plight...

Unfortunately I don't think they have the "brains" to accomplish this feat...

Therefore I will send a "group" of "lynxes" to help them "chain" up...as it were... laugh.gif

Would I be right if the group of protesters you write about are the same ones I am getting a little suspicious of lately.

By the way there is still no sign of Savage.

You are right...

The volume of posts that Savage put out was amazing and required a lot of effort...

The desire to do so has to wane and disappear after a while, I think that is what's happening now...

When I encounter a poster like that, I think...This too shall pass cool.gif

Imagine if you will, the following scenario.

A certain company that was facing serious external financial threats to its own survival, due to a political shift, tied to a limited network of specific investment partners that it could only turn too.

Now, what could prompt partners to invest more into such a company?

Information warfare? Or so called hateful vigilante reporters laugh.gif who translate Swedish news into English and tarnish a brand image closely linked to government agencies? The same agencies which often invest in such brand?

So imagine if some dastardly person at that same company decided to assign a group of people to conduct an external opposition to help bolster new investments from its slacking partners. In-turn, helping shore up said company.

Anyway, thanks for all the concern wink.gif
