You got it exactly right.

You are not dumb. You are smart.

He listed the trees much later separately, and I got them to be a small part of history...and they happened to be my size.

I promise that I didn't pay $34K for them, though.

Well, he seems to kind of like us now.

Wait, you've _seen_ the holy of holies, the Shoe Sanctum? What was it like? You've entered Portnoy's Forbidden Cavern?

Jesus H, it had better be well north of 200. If not, I am going to have to brush up on my old Harvey C. lectures on Thomas Hobbes.

I prefer to believe there must be legitimate shoe consumer royalty.

Well, we rented this cat for 22 good years.

It's like when a thread reaches double digit pages...euthanasia.

This has truly been an interesting thread and has turned a rather mundane Friday afternoon right around. There is nothing like witnessing the shear spectacle of territorial pissing. It is also interesting to see who has the ability to state their case without resorting to emotional outbursts. Now I remember why I don't drink and post.

This is an internet forum. We decide as a group, communally.

That being said, my answer to getting a drink is always, "yes."

Does that mean you're buying?

This is my primary charm: I always buy the rounds.

It's always sad to remember at the end it doesn't make them love you.

If you must be cynical, be so in a French way.

They say that money
Can't buy love in this world
But it'll get you a half-pound of cocaine
And a sixteen-year old girl
And a great big long limousine
On a hot September night
Now that may not be love
But it is all right

Well, not French, but you get the picture.

I think it would be bizarre for anyone other than a billionaire, entertainer, or royalty to have 400-ish pairs of shoes (and, I believe, we have ruled out he is either of the 3, aportnoy has even posted his face in pics before). The fact that he never seems to wear them, he only takes pics of them 4 at a time, and they never appear on ebay is a mystery wrapped in an enigma.

You forgot the unforgettable Immelda Marcos. I also have a woman who works for me with over 200 prs of shoes in her closet.

I remember all those moments
Lost in wonder that we'll never find again.
Though the world is my oyster
It´s only a shell full of memories
And here by the Seine Notre-Dame casts a long lonely shadow...
Now - only sorrow
No tomorrow
There´s no today for us, nothing is there for us to share but yesterday...
... Tous ces moments perdus dans l'enchantement qui ne reviendront jamais
Pas d´aujourd´hui pour nous
Pour nous il n´y a rien à partager sauf le passé...

Wow, I mean wow....lookie what has happend to this thread.
Way to take this from a funny zany thread and turn it into a hallucination. I LOVE IT.
I only hope that the cover of darkness this evening drives this deeper into bizzare confrontation.
NICE WORK.

Ecce momenta
Illa mirabilia
Quae captabit
In aeternum
Memor
Modo dolores
Sunt in dies
Non est reliquum
Vero tantum
Comminicamus
Perdita
