Ah...i thought the protocol was link back to post 19 itself, like last year...

(I did in the period at the end.) And according to the double-post auto-checker, people linked to cat-scan.com the first three birthdays. But anyway, "Yay, seven years old!"

"Feelin' 7-UP, I'm feelin' 7-UP...feelin' 7-UP, I'm feelin' seven up...It's a crisp, refreshing feeling...crystal clear and light...America's drinking seven-up...and it sure feels right...Feelin' lucky 7, feelin' lucky 7, feelin' 7th heaven, 7-UP! Feelin' 7-UP, I'm feelin' 7-UP, feelin' 7-UP, I'm-"

"Kevin, stop singing man..."

"Huh? I wasn't singing, guy."

"I'm standing right next to you and you're fucking singing. Cut it out!"

"Jeez. Why so tense guy?"

I look forward to metafilter's first user who is younger than the site itself.

I'm going to give you your birthday spanking, MeFi! Come out come out wherever you are!

wow... talk about an esoteric reference to ourselves. I was muy confused at this year's post and I've been around a little while... and have been reading even longer. Happy to participate in the celebrations though.

Metafilter: teaching indiebass a new in-joke every time he stops by

You were not alone, indiebass. One poor chap commented that the link went to a domainspotter.

I also wondered why "cat pictures" and "dick pictures" were on the same site, but given the tendency for bestiality around here lately, sort of shrugged it off.

Does anyone read the posts down here?

We all do!

How could you not?

Happy birthday to me! Oh, and MeFi too

My post or the other one? I was hoping to get a riff off the 'Give me a website until…', but no such luck (I really had nothing… believe me I tried). I am learning as I go and one of the lessons I've learned from this is, to be 'clear and plain' or it won't be picked up by other users. I do still wonder what has been wrought in these last seven years though. I'll leave you with 'We are seven' and to cogitate on the MetaFilter end. Bang or Whimper?

either way, I KISS YOU!
