Pastimes : Post Grubbers Trophy Case -- Ignore unavailable to you. Want to Upgrade?

Double zeros ????

No way.

The MINIMUM length of a qualifying grub is 3 digits, and those are for especially significant numbers, like 222.

TRIPLE zeros, aka: millennium grubs, are AT LEAST four digits, and are legal.

Now, since you're concerned about my sharing the list ...

I will accept bribes.

I could provide a subset of the easy grubs online (for free) so the rookie grubbers can compete with the pros and actually feel like they're accomplishing something when they snag a grub.

Then, for a reasonable fee I could provide the really GOOD grub opportunities via private communications.

These darned retirement expenses keep building, you know.

BTW, the first use of the term "grub" was in June of '98, not '96. Typo.

Ooops ... sorry.

Make that 1998 -- gotta' be Y2K compliant. It just wouldn't do to have one of the FBNA founders screw that up.

Sure is a pretty day.

The value of a Karen Valentine has already been diluted significantly. I demand a return to the gold standard for KV -- only pure 222's, one per thread. If you want to increase the supply of KV's, you have to back it with a new thread.

Congratulations 3 Bar.... You got the big 20K grub on this thread...... I was looking to score it ......but got distracted with my work..

My good friend and former Co worker at Citibank...Henry Volquardsen, who set up the post grubbers
"Trophy case" would be duly impressed.!!!!!!

the day is young...but I am awarding you "The Play of the Day" for that propitious grub..

and all so close to the ever important Autumnal Equinox....... and also snagged it at the start of the Rosh Hashanah New Year!!!!!

Why is it called Rosh Hashanah?
In Hebrew rosh has many meanings, including “head” or “first” or “start,” and shanahmeans “year,” with ha simply meaning “the.” In combination, the name of the holiday translates as “head of the year.”

When does it start and end?
In 2017, Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown Wednesday, September 20, and ends with nightfall Friday, September 22. Technically, the holiday is September 21 and 22—the first and second days of the month Tishrei on the Jewish calendar—but in Judaism, the day begins at sundown the prior night. That’s why the Sabbath every week begins at sundown Friday and continues until nightfall Saturday. So Wednesday is Erev Rosh Hashanah, or Rosh Hashanah eve, and marks the beginning of the holiday.
