Yep - there's a few pages of my Smile scattered initially with Epock's Mad - and then he just goes to empty posts.

I see Maine is still in existence. This is a porblem.

Yeah, gas ain't cheap.

It is a minor annoyance now that I drive a large gas guzzler. I have a big tank, probably 22 gallons or so. And in California, you can't fill up more than $75 worth on one fill, probably to prevent people from gassing and going.

With the high gas prices, it probably costs me about 80-85 bucks to fill up. SO I either have to swipe the credit card twice, or not fill the tank.

They should bump that 75 dollar limit up.

THere's a $75 limit on getting gaz? WTF? H3ll iz lnger for tourons.

Never heard of it, of course I can fill up my truck for $50. Do you use premium or something? Yuppie.

You probably just have a 12-15 gallon tank. If you are a good consumer like I am, you need to burn much more gasoline! 22 gallons baby!!
Should be the same size as my runner was. 16. Subie is the same as well

You have a Landrunner too?

No. I had a 4runner.

Quite the yuppiemobile.

Not really. It was two wheel drive 4 cylinder. I miss my runner. I loved that thing

The zekez rock a 12 year-old, purple Toyota Tacoma. It's not even 4wd. Ewe guise awl drive yuppiemobilez!

My runner was a 97. Pretty much base model except it had electric windows and door locks. I really miss that thing

Yes, my subie is way more yuppie mobile than the runner was. Heated seats. Two sunroofs. Leather. etc. I paid way less for it. It used to be my uncle's

Two sunroofs? My subie has 0 sunroofs.

Jelus.

Way to fuck things up nicodonny.


It just doesn't feel the same to postwhore like that. Mindless "content"

I'm done. Have fun donny.

Jay tires only four pages in. Script apparently keeps going for a while yet.

I'm still jelus I don't have any sunrooves.

you should be jeluz uv our blorted pc++. yore under 4k because you took a potato-fucking interlude.

I admit to skimming a page or two of the PCI a few days ago. There was some terrifyingly misinformed aid climbing technique spray going on.

- "Meat bomb" takes the BET vernacular by storm. Accounting for approximately 5% of all words posted during this latter days of this period. The semantics evolve from the generally accepted definition to become a verb, noun, adjective, PT, a text-enhanced photograph and post-whoring filler.

- Even after the return of chossmokey from Calgary (the Calgary Times actually extends well past the actual vacation time period as demonstrated by the occasional late period post from granite_grrl), he does not post to the thread.

Without having found an epochal post (as opposed to an epoch post, which I found plenty of) to define a boundary, we shall loosely refer to this period as the Early Years. Some of the discussion points of this period:

- The underlying tension of the thread, a guy (chossmonkey) with a friend and climbing partner (brent_e) who has other interests besides climbing, provides the solid initial cohesion of the thread. Ultimately when we answer the question, "Why do we still have the BET and not one of the other thousands of threads that have started and died?" we find at its core this archetype that resonates strongly across time, geography, cultures and gender.
- Chossy has strong, unique online presence and an uncanny ability to roll off the on-liners in a consistently droll yet (usually) non-confrontational manner.
- Another unique aspect to the thread is the interplay between the lead character (chossmonkey) and his wife (granite_grrl). She provides a foil for some of chossy's best material and the reader is left with a sense of two people who are deeply in love and comfortable sharing it with the world. Again, a compelling theme in the climbing world where relationships and climbing often don't mix.
- There is a much more diverse population in the Early Years, though many of the core personalities remain. People seem to stop in to post-whore for a bit then move on. Some of the heaviest early posters like kachoong seem to no longer participate. Others like the_climber seem somehow out of step with the proceedings.
- Beyond post-whoring and the abortive "drive by" concept, there is little structure to the thread. A far cry from the highly ritualized dystpoia of today.
- While the Canadians still are in clear command, several of the major California players are in place (CI, Snoop, Zeke, Art, et al).
- The good doctor has solidly established his avatar which remains largely unchanged today. In the EY, next to chossy, he is clearly leading the way forward.
- Pagination has been noted but not heavily discussed and certainly nowhere near the competitive contact sport it is today. Early research into post deletions is complete.

Moving on...

That's a quite exceptional run-down of the history of the thread... nice one!

I rarely post to the site anymore, let alone to this thread... with a four to five month absence I was inevitably drowning in around 600 odd pages of catch-up... much to the dismay of the PC gland inside of me I refrained and as such missed out on the commanding informative drivel passed down by generations of pages... pages which were set to a different tune of my 40 posts per page... the PTFTW were, in essence, lost for me at that stage... and being blind to PTFTW's is much like RC.blab without the donnies... where is the fun in that?

I came into the BET late - around page 1400 or so. They told me I had to GU the whole thing to get them to stop being mean to me. So I did, out of spite. And yet they are still mean to me.

we actually just thought you were an annoying donny. which hasn't changed.

Forty posts per page?! I have no concept of what your life must be like. Sort of like if you were an evangelical Christian living in Kansas.

Yeah, the confusion comes and goes... at least there is what I like to call an eclipse of the page setting... every 8 of your pages... and every 5 of mine... a bit like two bands playing at different rhythyms will every now and then come into sync and then back out of sync again... it's not always easy to catch.

Sort of a plantetary conjunction. If you take all of the pagination fluffery out you lose a lot. For instance, the 50 pages before page 2000 went by in an afternoon. Leading to the infamous Francis-gate, which provided most of the content of the next 300 pages. And which wasn't actually resolved for another 1000 pages.

Unless CI has recognized that I did not violate teh parlay first, it has not been resolved.

Everyone was getting butthertz about the pages of flickr pictures, inane quotes and randomly recycled posts so I must have been at the point where I changed over almost exclusively to post-and-delete.

It apparently wasn't in it's final form yet - which would check my Friends list round the clock and wait for everyone to be offline. Then there would be a frenzy of posting and deleting. I had added the modz to my friends list as well as the regular B-Teem so as to fly under the radar as long as possible.

I wonder how far it would have gone had art not been manually running the same game in the star forum and taunting CI? That was the downfall, trying to pull Dave into the mix.

it wuz yore fault, you gave him teh shitty krypto.

He actually had some different view settings or something that tripped up the delete part of the script. So when I ran the script as him it slammed in 300 posts while Mack-Herry was watching but didn't delete them.

I rarely post to the site anymore, let alone to this thread... with a four to five month absence I was inevitably drowning in around 600 odd pages of catch-up... much to the dismay of the PC gland inside of me I refrained and as such missed out on the commanding informative drivel passed down by generations of pages... pages which were set to a different tune of my 40 posts per page... the PTFTW were, in essence, lost for me at that stage... and being blind to PTFTW's is much like RC.blab without the donnies... where is the fun in that?

I came into the BET late - around page 1400 or so. They told me I had to GU the whole thing to get them to stop being mean to me. So I did, out of spite. And yet they are still mean to me.

we actually just thought you were an annoying donny. which hasn't changed.

Now we see the violence inherent in the system...

So the second major period of the BET runs from the mid-300s to the early 500s and co-incides with choss and becs' trip to Calgary, which gives this era it's name: the Calgary Times. We see a rapid evolution of the thread during this period:

- Biodiversity drops precipitously. Brent_e makes some early moves but quickly dwindles. Within a short period of time the Californians are solidly in control. They are joined by ex-military elements Dr_Feelgood, who explicitly swears fealty to them early in this phase and Epoch, who implicitly supports the filling of the power vaccum. The California Cabal is responsible for over 80% of all posts during the Calgary Times.

- The unholy marriage of pagination and post-whoring is consummated. No longer do we see the shy, apologetic posting of several successive lightly populated notes. As this period wears on we often see the bottom sections of each page become countdowns, often with some gimmick like using a foreign language to count or breaking a short phrase into component words.

- "Meat bomb" takes the BET vernacular by storm. Accounting for approximately 5% of all words posted during this latter days of this period. The semantics evolve from the generally accepted definition to become a verb, noun, adjective, PT, a text-enhanced photograph and post-whoring filler.

- Even after the return of chossmokey from Calgary (the Calgary Times actually extends well past the actual vacation time period as demonstrated by the occasional late period post from granite_grrl), he does not post to the thread.

Without having found an epochal post (as opposed to an epoch post, which I found plenty of) to define a boundary, we shall loosely refer to this period as the Early Years. Some of the discussion points of this period:

- The underlying tension of the thread, a guy (chossmonkey) with a friend and climbing partner (brent_e) who has other interests besides climbing, provides the solid initial cohesion of the thread. Ultimately when we answer the question, "Why do we still have the BET and not one of the other thousands of threads that have started and died?" we find at its core this archetype that resonates strongly across time, geography, cultures and gender.
- Chossy has strong, unique online presence and an uncanny ability to roll off the on-liners in a consistently droll yet (usually) non-confrontational manner.
- Another unique aspect to the thread is the interplay between the lead character (chossmonkey) and his wife (granite_grrl). She provides a foil for some of chossy's best material and the reader is left with a sense of two people who are deeply in love and comfortable sharing it with the world. Again, a compelling theme in the climbing world where relationships and climbing often don't mix.
- There is a much more diverse population in the Early Years, though many of the core personalities remain. People seem to stop in to post-whore for a bit then move on. Some of the heaviest early posters like kachoong seem to no longer participate. Others like the_climber seem somehow out of step with the proceedings.
- Beyond post-whoring and the abortive "drive by" concept, there is little structure to the thread. A far cry from the highly ritualized dystpoia of today.
- While the Canadians still are in clear command, several of the major California players are in place (CI, Snoop, Zeke, Art, et al).
- The good doctor has solidly established his avatar which remains largely unchanged today. In the EY, next to chossy, he is clearly leading the way forward.
- Pagination has been noted but not heavily discussed and certainly nowhere near the competitive contact sport it is today. Early research into post deletions is complete.

Forty posts per page?! I have no concept of what your life must be like. Sort of like if you were an evangelical Christian living in Kansas.

Yeah, the confusion comes and goes... at least there is what I like to call an eclipse of the page setting... every 8 of your pages... and every 5 of mine... a bit like two bands playing at different rhythyms will every now and then come into sync and then back out of sync again... it's not always easy to catch.

Sort of a plantetary conjunction. If you take all of the pagination fluffery out you lose a lot. For instance, the 50 pages before page 2000 went by in an afternoon. Leading to the infamous Francis-gate, which provided most of the content of the next 300 pages. And which wasn't actually resolved for another 1000 pages.

Unless CI has recognized that I did not violate teh parlay first, it has not been resolved.

He never accepted the signed confession from blutarski?

Good find Jeff. I didn't realize nilco-whazzizface produced the skionbomz.

did he definitely make it?

He posted it right after the Double Arrogant Bastard acronym was developed. Though apparently CI inadvertently coined the scion phrase itself.

NFG!! NFG!!

Donny just francized himself.

Ha! I must have had the poste-and-delete script running during my birthday page.

Everyone was getting butthertz about the pages of flickr pictures, inane quotes and randomly recycled posts so I must have been at the point where I changed over almost exclusively to post-and-delete.

It apparently wasn't in it's final form yet - which would check my Friends list round the clock and wait for everyone to be offline. Then there would be a frenzy of posting and deleting. I had added the modz to my friends list as well as the regular B-Teem so as to fly under the radar as long as possible.

I wonder how far it would have gone had art not been manually running the same game in the star forum and taunting CI? That was the downfall, trying to pull Dave into the mix.

it wuz yore fault, you gave him teh shitty krypto.

He actually had some different view settings or something that tripped up the delete part of the script. So when I ran the script as him it slammed in 300 posts while Mack-Herry was watching but didn't delete them.

sounz like some shitty krypto that wasn't properly accomodating uv all settingz.

I'm surprised the BETroglyphs never caught on. This one apparently asks whether art is mad about the post-Nice Hike cavorting and Golden Post ruminations.

they never caught on because they're emoticonz.

You make a gud poynte. The emoticonz are teh ghey. Except mrs_zeke's pirate. I saw her first poste and it had a bunch of pirates in it.

pirates, still ghey.

no, he still claims that my original deleshun that moved me from post 50k1 (a ptftw) into 50k (a non-ptftw) was a parlay violashunz. It was not. The parlay only prevented removing others from the PTFTW, which I did not due.
