There's only one thread.Vimothy was right - past a certain point, all threads do converge.
It's a function of the fact that there are only a dozen regulars on this board, who, like old marrieds, can read one anothers' minds and therefore know that each thread will basically write itself, with everyone in character and the requisite amount of bickering.
It's only the new people who infuse /d/ with fresh blood. Right now you're still new, which is why I read everything you write and enjoy your fresh-faced reactions that to the rest of us are like unique snowflakes falling onto dirt.
