    It’ll never make it that far…

    Jokes. The answer is March 13th.

    My father has a Honda hybrid. He is what I call a militant environmentalist. He travels to gas stations and laughs at the people getting gas, calling them fools and screaming “I get 55 mpg!”

  3. Dude. Why didn’t I think of this?

    What if I trade the car in before 99,999?

    Care for a side bet that says you don’t?

    March 26th at 2:15 pm

    That’s my guess.

    I believe that math, based on his in-school numbers, would work out to March 18, but then you have to pad it for holidays. BUT, you are talking Mahaffie. He has this penchant to just up and drive where ever the hell he feels like it and get all snappy with his camera. On that tid-bit, the guess should be rolled back to mid-February, but that’s crazy talk.


    March 20th and he doesn’t trade it in…as obsessed as he is with this, he wouldn’t dare miss the opportunity to take a picture of all 9’s and then celebrate the 100,000th mile.

    OK, I am voting for March 27th, my birthday. It has been lucky for me so far. Last year Atkins resigned on my birthday. So it will also be the one year anniversary of that event.

    Jason: Care for a side bet that says you don’t?

    Inner demon voice: Score! We can win this one.

    Inner angel voice: Now, now, Michael, let us not take advantage of dear, young, foolish Jason.

    Inner demon voice: Don’t listen to him! dammit! There may be a sucker born every minute, but they avoid you like the plague. Strike while the talons are sharp!

    Inner photographer: Hmmm. Mr. Smitty may be on to something. Let’s not take that bet!

    Inner demon voice: NOOOOOOOOOOO! You people are crazy….

    The key really is getting in Kilroy’s good graces and have him use his mad photoshop skillz to modify an existing image and have him post on the day you select…

    I’ll take March 16th 🙂

  11. liberalgeek says:

    Damn, missed it by a week. I guess I’ll just have to pull for Atkins resigning from the race in disgrace as my birthday present this year.

    I’d like to thank my trusty abacus for that amazing calculation! Also, thanks to Mahaffie for not screwing up my calculations with his knee-jerk photo junkets (keeping them to a predictable number, that is). 🙂

    Hey…do these new comments make this the longest-running thread (in terms of time) on the blogosphere???
