The lightning bolt thread was the most epic undertaking ever attempted in RM, if not internet, history. It's best moments should be remembered. So in this thread please nominate your favorite moments. Ideally by quoting the post.

These aren't really individual posts, but:

* Betterman (Live) [lecherouslittlestump, I believe]

* Chud's incredible dog top post run.

What brave soul is going to trawl through the whole thing? I had grand plans and got to page 20 before giving up.

20? That's shameful. I usually have the stamina for around 50 before I give up.

Stip, maybe you should gather a team of selectors for nominations. They can each take a portion of the thread to trawl through, looking for entries. We might need to recruit more RM members first though.

"This album sucks," -McParadigm, page 7

"Please pay attention to me," -Lament, too many pages to count

I just want to say, before we go any further, that even if my efforts aren't nominated for any prizes, I hope I at least win a prize for longevity... you know, like Pearl Jam.
