Rapacity

RAPACITY, n. Providence without industry. The thrift of power.

2010 Update: Amorality in the satisfaction of appetites shared with a hungry observer, such as an illimitable voracity for hyperbole.

Note: I'm not sure whether to be proud or embarrassed, but I believe Saturday's post was the 1500th on this blog.

Rapacity: Congrats on the 1500th post. I make a motion that you have all the thrift of power for that accomplishment :)

RAPACITY -- having the great capacity of thriving on the fruits of someone else's labor.

Congrats on 1500, Doug. That's a lot of words!

Karen said...

And what about comments. ... Do you know how many of those you've had?

jenn said...

1500 posts? Impressive. Dems a lot defining.

I got nothin' for rapacity.

My verification says "pubmen"

I think it's telling me something.

1500! You'd have to be rapacious to eat all those words.

Happy 1500th!

Doug, you have a rapacious appitite for blogging. I mix mine with pizza.

Congratulations on the 1500 for this blog.
My Little Blog hit 1482 this afternoon, I'm right behind you
My comments hit 12,860 on all blogs, a lot more were on the Little Blog than the others combined. You have to be way ahead on comments! You run daily with 15-20 every day here.
Anyway I am not in competition with you.

Doug said...

Thanks, Thom. Maybe I'll pinch a penny later today.

You bet Quilly, particularly if we count the fruits of other people's labor.

I don't, Karen, but 30,000 is a safe low-ball estimate, which means I'm only 5% responsible for this site.

Yep, Jenn. It's telling you you need to pluralize.

You did, George. One of these days when I next open my template I'm going to give that song a place of honor here.

Bow wow.

Actonbell, soak 'em up. A fine ceviche, I think they'll make.

Nope, Jim. Competing on blogs would be like comparing big toes, I think.

Hey, thanks, K! You were there when it started.

Hotdog-OK, Ariel!

I love that word it has some spit to ti.

I think that the 1500 posts is quite an accomplishment. Congratulations.

I won't tell anyone.

Karen said...

Promise, Coop?

Hobbes said...

Congratulations, and many happy returns.

I'm happy for you too. I have no idea about the word of the day though.
