Nickerless, often when Im at the servo putting fuel in my car, I will aim for say...$60.00, but sometimes I end up with $60.01 which means I have to continue to the next round number of $65.00.....

If this were to happen in your post count, would you consider rounding up to 6500 posts.....to just make it a nice round number? A number you could sleep with?

Also can we expect a stock market crash when you finally do post your last post? And is this the reason that the price of gold has shot up to record highs - in preparation for your last post? Is this why Roy is telling everyone to buy and hold as much gold as you can? Is this why Roy has come out of hiding and back into civilization?

If you do feel like ending on a controversial note, here's a few more:

*Why does Quiksilver have so much 'juice' with Da Hui and the North Shore?
*What's Sarge up to nowadays?

Why do you shy away from these controversial topics?

Don't you feel entitled to some kind of reasoned and firm intellectual committment based on your experience and your reasoning in the manner of, say JK Galbraith?
Or is there some reason that you don't wish to give offence?
Some stronger moral/philosphical guiding principle?
Ha ha ha shearer is that all you've got? Oh dear.

My apologies to Kurungabaa readers and to shearer -- he is not a New Sarcastic at all.

Anyway this is number 6000 so I will try to answer the few remaining questions in this last pack of posts.

As to the above, you wanna go and look at the Other Things I Hate thread.

bumfluff, I wouldn't be overly concerned about the stock market...despite the horrors apparently awaiting us according to that other thread about the doom of the global economy, I suspect everything will be sort of OK in the mid term. (ooo shit that wasn't very JK Galbraith was it. Still ol' JK never minded deficit spending.)

rightbrain, re Quiksilver having "juice" on the North Shore, perhaps it's because they've poured a lot of money and support into key surf-cultural areas there in the past 25 years...nurtured a lot of long term relationships...and avoided some of the errors of some of the other big surf co's in the process. It's not rocket science and it doesn't speak to the fabulously cheeseball old surf grapevine rumour about Quik and the surf industry in general being founded on drug money. Sorry. Oh well.

And Paul Sargeant is currently in Japan, where he is currently engaged in re-establishing his contacts within the Australian qualifier-level pro surfer milieu. He seems to have recently attended the 4-star qualifying event in Chiba, which was won by Davey Cathels. I'm not sure if this means his ASP event ban is over. You can find Paul on Facebook.

OK that's it, thanks heaps to to the lot of yas, it's been a real pleasure and a gift to be able to have this kind of contact with surfers whom I might never have got the chance to meet otherwise. It's reminded me of why I took up the writing gig in the first place; a bit like the Tracks letters pages in the late 70s. I'm gonna leave my account active here mainly so Buffy or some horrible rejuvenation of KK can't start pretending to be me -- it'll also mean if you want to contact me for some reason I'll be pm-able. And I might come back briefly to hype whatever "Internet" project I end up entangled in down the track. Otherwise, see ya! and thanks a million to Don Norris for setting the Realsurf thing up in the first place, it's clearly been of great value to a lot of surfers and I hope it continues to be. Good on ya Don.

Thomas Thomas might become violent with jealous rage.

If only he didn't have a rainbow paddle pop for a foot he might be able do something about it.

I doubt Dino has the intelect to turn on a tap.

Me on the other hand. Well my humility stops me from telling you just how f*cking good I am in bed.
