I think we should factor in the WGAC Index. That stands for "Who Gives A Crap?" It uses the number of views a thread has to modify its number of replies. Based on my entirely unscientific observation, the average thread has roughly ten time the number of views as it does replies. So the WGAC Index is calculated by (views / replies * 10).
Here are the WGAC Indices for the threads with the most replies:
random about random .792
opposites game .375
You can see that the game threads suck for WGAC, and sex definitely sells. So if we multiply the total replies by the WGAC Index, here are the current thread champs with their modified size:
random about random 2260
opposites game 440
WAG1 still wins by virtue of sheer volume, but one Catsuit reply is worth almost seven WAG1 replies. Now we have a more realistic goal to which this thread can aspire, a possible methodology to calculate how well we're doing, and scientific proof that I've got way too much time on my hands this morning.
I have enjoyed watching King Kong all my life. It became one of my all-time favorites when, as a teenager, I dozed in front of my b&w TV and woke to the angelic vision of Fay Wray.
Tonight I'm catching a midnight show of the new three-hour version, even though I must get my kids off to school and myself off to work just a few hours after the credits roll. And all I can think about is how much Naomi Watts reminds me of Fay Wray.
