Wink Year in review: best "oneliners" in ecomodder forum

As 2010 wraps up we need to take time to meditate and reflect back on the moments, one liners or phrases that got to us. can be a zinger, a smart arxx remark, a dumb remark, a very real smart comment.

1. can be up to 3 sentences long. (some zingers take a little longer to develop)

2. poster here can pull out anybody else's oneliner. just need to link or credit the writer

3. Anything is fair game. we're not here to rehash the issue, just acknowledge the oneliner

4. if this goes well, I'll create a VOTE FOR post right after christmas day and let it run until the wisemen show up.

so to ge the ball rolling:

You should have started this at the beginning of the year, it'll take some time to go back and sift through the old posts...

So I propose to start a "2011 oneliners" thread after New Years.

Oh, and I think this thread should go in the Lounge, [i]maybe[i] in Success Stories.

Jeebus I didn't know I had been nominated for anything

I think Frank's could go to make up a book - there is a rich seam of material there.

Forget the math. Just get some cardboard and a marker and start cutting. Once you make one you like out of cardboard, then you can transfer it to acrylic or coroplast or shower surround or whatever you like.
