Ping Death Pool

So kids, here’s a question I’m pretty sure we haven’t touched before: when do you think the Daily Ping as we know it will die?

I’m in a position of authority, but I have no “insider information”. So I’m going to take a guess: January 5, 2013. We’ll have a nice, long streak and we’ll pull the plug just before our annual Just the Ten of Us Ping.

I predict it will coincide with the birth of Ryan and Hyuen's 4th child.

If that's 1.5.13, they'd better get goin'.

Who says it HAS to die? Kids can be taught to type too. ;-)

Ciao,

THE DAILY PING DIES THIS WEEK. I READ BETWEEN THE LINES!

Whatever the day, it will surely coincide with my own death--of heartbreak.

Bold predictions are useless. Remember how Michael Stipe used to forecast that REM would break up and quit midnight 1999? If only they did.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
