As this thread has something to do with counting, I thought I'd post here to announce that this is (extraodinarily!) my 5,000th post on TH (besides several hundred PM's). If you had told me 3-and-a-bit years ago that that would be the case, I'd have been very surprised and somewhat sceptical.
However, here we are! So I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Maria and Alan for setting up this forum to promote humanism, to thank them and all my fellow posters for the fun and education I have received from it, for allowing me the opportunity to explore (and share) my own views on a whole variety of topics, and perhaps most importantly, to say thanks for the friendships I have made with fellow posters, whom I would otherwise never have met.
3 cheers for everyone!
