Everyone buys it eventually, its life, but just before that comes, whenever you want it to be, what will you hope that your legacy will be? Could be materialistic or more in thoughts and ways of thinking? Could you say "Yes, I did that" that with a smile on your face. I dunno, any thoughts?

I'm just trying to get through life as anonymously as possible. If nobody notices, I got away with it.

To have one of those uber-kvlt bands that nobody's heard of, but those who have get second mortgages to pay for my ultra-rare merchandise on eBay. Examples: Kruiz, Toxik, Spazztic Blurr.

I got a personalized title on this board. Yes.

I know this has been discussed before, but really early on, so I can't remember the answer. I thought that it was something like after 30 days and 50 posts, we could make up our own title, if we wanted it. Guess I was wrong. Conrad, AnnMarie, anybody...? :confused:

Oh, and, congrats, FL!~Bountifully, Fuchsia

Over 36 rep, I think. And maybe also Senior Membership. 30 days could come into play.

As it stands now, the first promotion comes at 100 posts AND 30 rep points.

As for my legacy, I hope that my work will have helped some people feel better about themselves, better understand themselves and those they admire, and perhaps even find their soulmates through the tools I provided. I also hope that my message may, in a very small way, have contributed to making the constitutionally suggested pursuit of happiness more easily attainable to my people.

It's a good buddhist question. I realize that enjoying my life isn't working for the greater mind. I realize that pleasure is fleeting. But that's what makes it special. As far as greater mind, I try to help people and make life better for all. We're all in this together.

But since I have no kids, what happens after I die really isn't much of a concern personally.

You have already nailed that legacy down... with plenty of time to spare! Good job, Mr. B. :D

I’ve thought about this a lot over the years, and it’s something that I’d like to experience through work and/or volunteer projects -- to give a voice to those who are vulnerable and to discover meaning, connectedness, and inner joy within the context of community.

Nice question, Australian Lord.

I paint so I hope my work will give pleasure long after I'm gone, all my friends own atleast one of my paintings.

I don't sell them I do it for the shear enjoyment of it, but who knows in years to come.:D

I imagine I'll leave an overflowing laundry hamper and something mysterious, wrapped in foil in the freezer.

And an embarrassing porn stash.

This is probably a pretty corny answer, but...

I hope I've taught someone, ANYONE, about deciding what kind of person they want to be, and then having the strength to make good decisions. Too many of my students from the residential treatment center had a learned helplessness about their issues, and didn't want to take responsibility to themselves. If any of them saw me as a positive role model for them, and learned to think before they act, then I've done something good for the world.

That is so true Betty, we always remember our teachers; some fondly and others not so.

If you have gotten through to just one of your students, then it is all worth while:)

I've got some touchy-feelie kinda stuff i'd like to leave but the thing that i hope makes my kids smile the most are my 50 shares of Martha Stewart that i got for less than free.

(my kids know how delighted it made me when Martha PAID me to take her...i seem to remember posting that story (fairly inappropriately, no doubt) on the Weight Board (of all places)).

Thankfully this is something I no longer worry about. ;)

I've enjoyed the Snapple things immensely and now i gotta ask.
Can you provide any background or details on this latest quote?

It has been said around the office that I have a head for a lot of crap. Or words to that effect. I'm sure it is meant in an endearing spirit.

That was from an old National Lampoon bit on actual insurance claims. Some of them just sorta stuck with me.

How 'bout you just start citing your sources on these quotes so i don't have to ask every time?
I wouldn't want to be suspected of trying to pad my post numbers to get ( to quote Old Dog Soldier, i believe) any board "benefits".

Your agendaless friend,
Egbert
