    And what do you think the guy who coined the phrase "Skypesos" will say when I bring this up to him? :D

    Do you mean your fellow co-founder or the other guy, imposter or something, who also claims credit for the term? ;)

    I'm sure the co-founder can obtain expert advice regarding exchange rates at work, perhaps in return for help with booking a few award tickets. Free trade arguments suggest that we should indeed create a market for sky pesos to MP points and vv and the co-founder even has access to experts in the design of markets.

    Better posterior than posthumous.

    Not im-post-er? He's definitely a post-er.

    Is an impost like an unpost or is it shorthand for an important post?

    isn't it impossible to unpost one's posterior once imposed on a imposter?

    I'll take "important post" even though I've never actually witnessed one.

    I would not want my posterior to be impaled on a post.

    You really know how to hurt a person. Sniff. None of my posts were important? Not even this one?

    This discussion seems to be driving away our honored co-founder. So sorry.

    Interesting use of the word "honored". Now, if only my posterior weren't on a post....

    I believe that posting pictures of one's posterior would lead to one's posts being deleted posthaste

    Would you prefer to be honorable rather than honored? You can't be "your honor" without sitting in judgment.

    All this levity worries me when we are discussing possibly the most important status in the entire global travel industry.

    Levity is critical, without levitation airplanes would remain on the ground.

    Lesseee, IIRC helicopter levitate but airplanes do not. There is aerodynamic levitation, but levitation requires stability, and airplanes are moving through the air, while the helicopter need not, despite the obvious movement of its airfoils. I think that's correct anyway.

    I'll accept your hypothesis and we'll levitt at that.

    Levitt, my Chicago friend, is a NYC builder and founder of Levittown Long Island. :rolleyes: I doubt Arthur want to know from this conversation.

    At first I interpreted this as claiming that Steve Levitt was your personal friend, which would seem to be a bit of namedropping.
