Could it be Marinelife? Egads! A party is in order! And possibly a floatation device. We can’t risk a drowning in all that lurve.

Thank you @marinelife.

This is simply amazing! You deserve a chorus of hearty Hawaiian “Ho’omaikai’s” sung to you as you drift through a pool sipping your favorite beverage.

50K? The mind boggles. I bow to @marinelife for supplying so many Lurveable answers and great questions.

AshLeigh's avatar

How does one go about boggling a mind? Does it involve pickling?
Great job Marinelife!

Applaus for one of my surrogate mothers/sisters on Fluther!
(One of) her last comment(s) sums up her enthusiasm:
“Damn it, I lost four hours waiting until midnight to even check [whether Fluther was back on, after the blackout [rebb]], because I did not want to be disappointed !
Have fun at your party, Marina!

Oh my gosh! Congrats to @marinelife! You are one very intelligent lady that makes Fluther the place to come for your wisdom and well thought out answers. Words escape me. Much love and many hugs to a very fine and good friend.

50Kongratulations. That is quite an achievement. Well done! Maybe you can do something about the orange tree jungle surrounding the 50K mansion!

augustlan's avatar

Congratulations, marinelife! You were one of my very first friends on Fluther, and it’s a joy to know you. Party on!

JilltheTooth's avatar

Wow, @marinelife, I am not surprised but I am impressed, especially because you’re not one to post every question and answer that comes to mind, you are considered and intelligent, and someone whose dogs I’d like to meet!

augustlan's avatar

@JilltheTooth I met the dogs! They are beautiful creatures.

Frigging amazing! Congrats :) That’s a lot of lurve. And the amazing thing is the amount of wisdom and sage advice that you dispense. If I see you answering a question I stop and read it over a couple of times, because I know it’s going to be good.

janbb's avatar

Oh darling, darling, darling – I wanted to throw your party! Well, you know better than anyone why I have being MIA today.

You are one of the prime jewels in Fluther’s mutli-gemmed crown; a wise, wise woman, the loyalist of friends with a wicked sense of humor to boot. You have seen me through some of the most ridiculous mishagass any woman has had to hear about with wisdom, understanding and just the right amount of truthiness,

I love you and am delighted with your friendship and accomplishments.

Mazel tov from me (and perhaps even the absent pd.)

Such a wonderful place in the ether, Fluther. It’s a place where everybody knows your name. I really got a jolt yesterday about what life would be like if there was no Fluther! It would be dark and cold.

I Fluther because I love answering questions and, I hope, helping people. I also love all of the jellies that make up this quirky place! Thanks to everyone for your congratulations. I wouldn’t be here (50kland) without all of you!

Congrats! You were one of the first jellies I ever talked to here, and you’re definitely one of my favorites! Your answers are always insightful and great and I love reading them. Keep on keepin’ on!!! :-)

Blueroses's avatar

Oh, now I see. It was your ascension that broke the internet yesterday! SOPA protest was a convenient scapegoat

Congratulations and felicitations, o, wise one. Long may you prosper.

Wait does this mean @marinelife and @wundayatta are the first two gods in Fluther’s Mt. Olympus!?

So 10,000 clicks of the “Great Answer” button, but how many more clicks didn’t move the meter? I’m guessing that only about 1 in 10 GAs actually “counts” for you; if that’s right, then your pithy answers have probably been the motivating force behind about 100,000 mouse clicks.

That’s about as many as the attendees at a typical Super Bowl.

At one click per second, it would take 28 hours to generate that many clicks.

If the amount of force required to click the average mouse button is about 0.5 newtons, then the cumulative force behind all those mouse clicks would be sufficient to stop a 10 ton truck traveling at an acceleration rate of 5m/s². Now, imagine that there’s a baby in the road in front of that truck; why, those clicks could save that baby’s life. Doesn’t that make you proud?

@Marinelife you get a yellow submarine for 50K right?

Great work. Cheers.

Fred931's avatar

Whoa, cool! I chose a really great time to stop by. Congrats.

Aethelwine's avatar

I think the only post you’ve ever written that made me think ”wtf!?” was the one I read today that mentioned you are hoping Baltimore wins the Super Bowl. (go 49ers!) Other than that, I lurve you bunches!!!

Congrats! :D

fundevogel's avatar

Thanks so much for your contributions. You are, if anyone could be, a pillar of the community. It’s hard to imagine this place without you.

wundayatta's avatar

Welcome to the moon! Sorry for being so late, but it’s awful darn dark over here on the dark side, and plus I got lost in the Orange Tree and while it seems like it’s today, it’s really yesterday, so I’m on time, after all!

Anyway, as requested, we installed the ocean yesterday. The beach has the coolest view! You can dial back the sun screen in the dome if you want more sun. Plenty of protection in the dome to keep out any nasty radiation.

SO…. congratulations! Welcome. Glad you’ve made it! You know I think you add so much to fluther. You’re a mainstay, and your advice is so good! See you around!

rooeytoo's avatar

Congrats to @marinelife , that is an amazing score! Are you and wundy the only ones there? You all behave yourselves now!

9doomedtodie's avatar

What each must seek in his life never was on land or sea. It is something out of his own unique potentiality for experience, something that never has been and never could have been experienced by anyone else- Marinelife.

Felicitations! Felicitations! Felicitations!......:D

Jude's avatar

Yay! Congrats. :)

forestGeek's avatar

Holy smokes @marinelife, that’s a load of lurve!!! Since that fateful day when I first signed up here, I have enjoyed and trusted all of your great and well thought-out answers and input. I cannot imagine Fluther without you. A very well deserved party for sure. Congratulations and cheers to one of my favorite jellies!

@marinelife: No only in my pantheon, but one of the three consuls here.

The stele is being constructed right now, and the stone carvers are sharpening their tools.

And as my grandma Birdie used to say, “Such a pleasure.”
