    P.S. This thread was not created by me!!

    P.S. I gues that makes this a post script and above a pre script.
    I just love these random threads that pop up. I have no idea how this got here but here's a poser:

    What is the probability that a random thread will just pop up with the name speed?

    At what speed will a random thread with the name speed pop up?

    And, last but not least, why?

    Any answers welcome!!

    The why part is not that difficult to answer. Somebody/Something just wants to give us a nice subject to talk about.
    (but I don't know why it isn't in this forum)

    There is an old thread called "Speed" in this Forum and as I understood correctly, the site is having some tech problems. Check out the "Kings" thread in the <Only chess> Forum.

    Yeah, I posted on that thread like twelve times and the mods kept erasing it. Thanks though.

    P.S. I was hoping for funnier answers.

    Why do you think they kept erasing it ?

    Four-letter-words or something ?

    P.S. I got no funny answers on stock right now. Sorry

    Seems they were working on something. There was no profanity, but the posts really had nothing to do with the thread title. That's alright, maybe someone else wants to amuse me.

    I've got some adresses for you in Amsterdam.
    They will be delighted to entertain you ...

    Any chance you'll be springing for my plane ticket to get over there or convincing my wife it's alright for me to go?

    I think I might be able to arrange that plane ticket, but I doubt whether I've got enough money in my pockets to bribe your wife.

    Probably not. At least it doesn't work when I try it. Thanks anyway.
