    I just started teaching that play yesterday! I told my students that Arthur Miller marrying Marilyn Monroe in 1956 gave hope to nerdy guys everywhere.

    Well dangit, the bandit strikes again. It was a GIF of Sally Fields's "you like me" Oscar acceptance speech. Trust me, it was hilarious

    I watched that last night! I like the 1985 Dustin Hoffman version, but enjoyed Kevin McCarthy as Biff in the 1951 version. I had just known him as an old character actor.

    You can, but you have to trawl through all the fakes.

    As well as earning 100,000 likes, he's probably given as many away too. I always see him liking my fairly limited contributions, which is always nice.

    A skilled collector, a pleasure to chat with Alegandron - and also a gentleman.

    I estimate that in about 237 years I will also reach this milestone.

    Congrats, @Alegandron! And thanks, @Andres2, for pointing out the milestone.
    ...Seriously, @Alegandron, besides generally being the greatest of all time (yawn), I have to wonder just how much of this tent you're holding up all by yourself. You're definitely one of the folks who keep me coming back here. (...On second thought, how much of an endorsement is that?)

    LOL, thank you EVERYONE. It was great to come home to read all these congrats, and some of the FUNNY ones! Thank you.

    Really helped my day. Had to get up early to take my wife to the Hospital (not an emergency), that is 1-1/2 hours away. She is basically deaf, so they are getting hearing aids, and other accoutrements for her. Then, en route home, total breakdown of our truck. Lost bearings on one of the pulleys on engine, threw all the belts, and total shutdown...no electrical, engine overheat, etc. 5 hours to get a tow truck to come out, then another 1hr to take it to a shop in a town near us. We live in Northern Siberia, USA, so it could had been a chilly day (we have been 10-15 degrees below, F for the last week.) Fortunately, we are above freezing today!

    Coming home to this thread really BRIGHTENED my day! THANK YOU EVERYONE!

    - Thank you @Andres2 for the COOL 100,000 Likes Bill with BLUE! Really cool!!!

    - Thanks @paddyman98 ... I always know you from your coin flips... but NOW we will be expecting you to be flipping an Ancient, and none of the Roman Empire stuff! Gotta be Roman Republic or at least a coin from BCE!

    - Thank you @Inspector43 ! Fun to watch all your posts... I have NO patience for cleaning!

    - @ancient coin hunter , thanks! ... yeah, now a couple bucks per like would be VERY cool!

    - Thanks @Justin Lee . Really enjoy your posts!

    - LOL, @LaCointessa ... not amazing :) , just putting up a bunch of dumb posts.

    - "Encomium", my new word I learned today, and a very kind comment, @kevin McGonigal ... very warm!

    - @YoloBagels ... believe making CT History and a dime JUST may get me a cup of coffee! Thank you for the thoughts!

    - LOL, @-jeffB , you will make it! It showed that I started on CT May-2013. I did not start posting until Mid-2015. I just lurked, learned, and stole ideas from everyone else those 2 years!

    - @Ignoramus Maximus ... I ask that of myself every day... WHO AM I???

    - Thank you @Al Kowsky ... I love the clapping! LOL

    - @NewStyleKing ... I betcha there is some type of scam that folks can buy likes on eBay... if NOT, LOL, I will be glad to sell you MINE from CT... interested???

    - Thank you @happy_collector , I enjoy your input a lot!

    - LOL, @Ryro , maybe YOU can get the next 100,000. :) Fun humor all the time.

    - @Curtisimo ... LOL... I even SAVED that Image, LOL..

    - GOOD ONE @ominus1 ... I am gonna save that one too... LOL

    - COOL @Theodosius ! LOL, gosh, that first Competition from @Curtisimo was a nail biter... I mean @zumby had WAY too awesome coins! He deserved it!

    - Thank you very much @DonnaML ... I enjoy your very thoughtful, well thought out, detailed, and educational posts! I am learning SO much about MY coins from your posts! VERY cool. And, fun to read your genealogy as well as your Ancient Egypt stuff. Some day, I would love to crash your Ancients party and look at all your items in your home!

    - Thank you for the complement @Collecting Nut ... I am amazed at the BREADTH of your collection!

    - LOL, @Gavin Richardson ... yeah the new standards make it a pain to post pics. I just hit reply on yours, and was able to see and laugh at it!

    - Thank you @Limes ... I really enjoy your contributions.

    - @Mr.Q ...thank you, are you from the Q-Continuum? :)

    - Best to you @Bing ! I am looking forward to looking at your collection in person again! Especially the completed Antony Denarii!

    - Thanks @potty dollar 1878 ... I used to collect US Trade Dollars, but only have one or two, and several Trades from around the world. Now YOU have to start posting ANCIENTS!

    - Thank you @Cucumbor ... But, many, I would take all your collection ANYDAY. Great stuff. I will even learn to be a Dombes expert!

    - Thank you @Di Nomos ... I just enjoy everyones' great contributions! Where ELSE can you brag about your hobby, and have your Ancients appreciated? Most of your friends and family probably glaze over, give a dumb look, and say "uuh-huuh" when you show them. :)

    - Thanks @jamesicus ... I really enjoy your collection, the knowledge you bring, and the guts you have to shrink it to 20. HOWEVER, even with that discipline... you are expanding your collection again! YEAH!!!

    - LOL, thank you @ambr0zie ... not skilled, most of the Experts here will say that I am a doofus collector. I just chase the coins that I like and have a passion for them! :)

    - Thank you @cmezner ... you have brought a LOT to these threads, thank you! Just great stuff!

    - @+VGO.DVCKS ... I keep learning about all this Medieval, Renaissance, and (heh-heh) "DARK AGES" stuff from you! As well as all the other long term guys who specializes there. I am only pulling folks legs about the Dark Ages, but I am learning the history and cool coins coming from that time. I mean, I went to school during the dark ages, and that was whet the taught us!

    - Thanks @panzerman ... you know I love the Gold! Keep 'em coming!

    - Thank you @Pishpash ! Love your stuff! Always great coins that you contribute!

    And to all.. again THANK YOU! Very kind.
