    I think there is a little too much jumping to conclusions here and not enough reading the conclusions that came about in the replies. There is a big market out there for things like this... board games, calenders, etc, etc... things that have interesting little questions on them that give people something to talk about. If posting on a forum for the sake of bringing people together for conversation is against proper internet etiquette then half the internet is living in anarchy. I'm not asking anyone here to do anything that they probably haven't already done... ask a question, start a topic, and see how much response you get. All I'm asking is for you to post your success so that I may come to my own conclusions and be satisfied with my curiosity.

    You can go about joining forums and spamming them with ridiculous questions or comments, but you won't do very well at this game. The idea is bring about enjoyment from enjoyment by satisfying another goal in creating an interesting topic. Now, if this appears to be an unusual concept to anyone, then you have the full right not to participate, however, I will be posting my entry shortly and anyone else willing to may do so at any time so long as the moderators have no problem with it.


    P.S. Congrats to Sand-Drax on the new location. I hope you are enjoying yourself.

    As I said, I like. I just couldn't make up my mind yet on where will I post.

    I'm working on it.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    None I guess. Apparently, from the looks of it, it failed.

    Like with most things unless a timetable is applied nobody will do anything.

    There is no time table... people you just gotta read. Most of you I know to be much more intelligent than this. You just submit an entry, from the time of the post, you have 24 hours to cumulate as many replies as possible. After 24 hours, that is your total which is then applied to an overall leader board. The game is endless, really... you just keep trying to top the best. There are two people that already said they will submit an entry, myself and Mario. Neither of us have submitted because we want to make a very quality post that people will find interesting and we're just simply not dedicating all day to thinking about it. This is fine of course because there is no overall time limit.

    Here's my application:

    Not something I could win with, but it may still produce a few surprises.
    Naturally, if I don't face any opposition, I will win and take the Z4 Coupe home.
