Administrative Note: If you don't want to read a lot of fluff go ahead and click "Next". But before you do that, click "Recommend It!" so that we can tweak the system for today and get an anomaly post as the most rec'd stock board post for the day.

The Post: If all has gone as planned, I should have a big GoldStar next to my name now. I'm sure some of you are wondering why I posted this on AAPL instead of a social board, it's pretty easy, this board is the Gimme My Recs of the stock boards and I thought I would take advantage of that. In all seriousness, this board has given rise to some of my best writing on the Fool and is also where I have also posted other major personal events so I thought I would come here to reminisce and thank all the little people that I can think of who made it possible.

A glance at my favorite posts within the past few months:

Agent's Cheerleading post
My movie making experience with iMovie, I really have no idea why this is my highest rec'd post

OT: Agent's CPA results
I think the title explains it all. I still can't believe how well I did on that exam after studying less than I did the first time I took it.

Re: Unbelievable
This one is great just because of how I started it, “Upon further reflection I have concluded that you are still an idiot”. Talk about great writing!

742 Evergreen Terrace FAQ
The Simpsons board I started has been one of my favorite places to post, very few personal attacks and for the most part, it's all Simpsons, all the time.

It's really not that great but that's what I get for writing after sitting in a hospital waiting room for 12 hours.

So I'm a geek, but I was proud of this post. It took me some time to get together, but I think it is pretty dang good. Look at the follow-ups for a little more detail.

Now for the thank you's (in no particular order). If I leave you out, it's not on purpose (well maybe it is), it's just that I only have so much room and I'm forgetful, deal with it.

MrHerring: Your analysis in poetic prose is always entertaining and enlightening. I hope you realize that the one time I used your writing style ( that I was slightly drunk. It was fun to write though!

Plato90s: It takes a lot of guts to be the bear on a board but you do it with analysis and I have respect for someone that can back up their position even if I don't agree with it.

CaveGirl: Somehow we always end up having crappy days on the same day but yours always makes mine look good. How that is thanking you, I don't know, I guess it's because you put my life in perspective.

Dcostello: Thanks for bringing 742 Evergreen Terrace back to life with Marge Madness.

Everyone that's posted on 742 Evergreen Terrace: What a weird bunch we have over there but you sure make it fun. Even when I was getting pissed with TMF, you were one of the big reasons why I kept coming back.

The entire B.O.P.E. (especially lserrin because she asked to be mentioned in the post): You give me a way to vent out my anger by coming up with great revenge ideas. It's rare that I don't get a good laugh from some of the great tactics we come up with.

Obviousman: Isn't it obvious why I'm thanking you?

Everyone else that I haven't mentioned that thought they would be: You are all great people and make my life at work great when I am bored out of my mind. Some of you make me laugh, some of you make me think and most of you piss me off (joke) and that's what this site is about.

Conclusion: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you

ps - Scooby Doo can doo doo, but Jimmy Carter is Smarter
