Bold. Well that was the opposite of what I expected.

I've been doing a lot of squats and cardio; mostly jump rope and stair climber. I'm hoping to develop a really tight ass, then start a fitness website about it. What do you guys think?

Think Marketing and it become clear.

Best. Thread. Ever.

Now all we need is Philo telling us about a former employer who actually expected him to build a community with his ass.

Alright, who bolded this?

Maybe Joel's summer interns started early!

Actually, making this thread bold could be meta-circular ;-).

So, do you think 'building ... with software' is working ? :-)

A bold move it was to bold this thread... Is this becoming a Seinfeld episode...

Me thinketh the bolding is not manual but works on the principle that when enough trusted regulars respond the thread becomes bold.

Me also thinketh me is probably wrong.

Post another topic with a link to one of joel's articles to see if you have discovered an automated bolding rule.

You know, I once had this one client who asked for something really unreasonable. I said "Sure, let me just pull that out of my ass!"
And the client was all like "Hey, can you do that?"

I mean, honestly.

You should have said, this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Have you noticed that the last 3 bold topics are about 50 topics far from each other?

We seem to be part of a matrix-esque experiment called the 'boldness of the 50th topic' without being aware.

Ok. It may be just a coincidence.

Is arse a British version of ass?

Chris McEvoy

No, an ass is a type of donkey.

'Arse' refers to the buttocks, and is quite vulgar.

Your arse may be vulgar, I occasionally still get complimented on mine.  True its usually smelly old women pushing a shopping trolley on a railway station but one has to get one's compliments where one can.

The SOED gives as one of the meanings of 'arse'

(Women regarded as a source of) sexual gratification. M20.

Programming is beginning to sound like fun.

Though I rather thnk the ass is of the equine variety; probably a manager.

An ass is not equine it's asinine.
