Do the games this time include giant Jenga? I've heard good things about that at On Tap.

It sounds like a fun evening. Thanks, BigJohn, for helping to organize it.

Giant Jenga is on the menu! It'll be fun to see jimi bringing the thing down in early stages of the game!

A "who posted it quiz" is a great idea!

Could you help out? :whistle:

I did a "Who posted it?" quiz at one of ThreadKiller's Xmas bashes and it fell dismally flat. There were, however, only four or five forumosans there. It's definitely something to consider, though.

Sounds rocking. I'll be there, just a tad later, after work.

Sorry I will not be able to make this one. I'll be in South Beach, Miami.
As it is, we seem to regard it as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has taken one side or the other. We regard it (in other words) as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has contrived to reach the object of his reasoning. We call a man a bigot or a slave of dogma because he is a thinker who has thought thoroughly and to a definite end.

Absolutely. I love South Beach.
