Headlines from 2029
From The Weekly World News, January 3, 2029:


         On January 2nd, 92 year old Gary Allan from Silent Hill, 
PA, and the poster only known as Tempest, 87, a life-long Las Vegas,
NV, resident, have set a new world record when making on one of 
BITOG's (Bob Is The Oil Guy) many forums the one millionth post  in 
what is now the longest forum thread in the 40 year history of the 
WWW (World Wide Web).

         The new world record did however come at a price, not com-
pletely unexpected by some, when, immediately after the media was
alerted of new world record was, forum head administrator X [un-
named for privacy and safety concerns] locked the massive thread. 
Asked if they would resume their contentious topic elsewhere, Gary
Allan, while looking a little tired, said, "Well, I'm not done with 
this topic," while Tempest declared, "We haven't even started yet!"

         We can only presume that we have no yet heard the last of 
those two feisty word warriors!
