This should be my Gold Star post - number 5,000.

I would love to list all the posters I enjoy and all the boards I read, but I know I would forget someone. So I give you a blanket thank you: Thanks for making this fun. Instead of a long list of posters and boards, I'm going to give credit to an often ignored numberical value - the number 5,000. It's a lovely round number, isn't it? So euphonious.

I dedicate this post to the following instances of the number 5000.

5000 images of Barga, Italy

5000 Tsiklilinki

The 5000 fingers of Dr. T

China: 5000 years

The firecracker 5,000 midnight run

5000 ways to earn a living
