If to live in this style is to be eccentric, it must be confessed that there is something good in eccentricity.

Today is the 150th year anniversary of the start of the fictional journey of Phileas Fogg and his Frenchman, Jean Passepartout, of around the world in 80 days, from the novel, aptly titled: Around the World in 80 Days, also published in 1872, i.e. 150 years ago.

A while ago I was thinking to myself, if the forums lasted 300 years - What would be the very last subforum I would post in or make a thread in? That itself would make a good thread, and someone can make that thread if they want.
But that got me thinking about what thread I'd make for each of these subforums, which gave rise to a new thought - What if I made a thread for every subforum? When I realized the 150th anniversary of Around the World in 80 Days was soon, I decided to make this thread! :toot:

So, for the next ~80 days, I'm going to try to go down the list of subforums and make a new, relevant thread. The goal is to hopefully get at least 1 page of responses, but some of the subforums are a bit quieter than others. I tried making a spreadsheet with ideas ahead of time, but I may need you, the viewer at home, 's help with coming up with ideas.

The journey starts at 20:45 GMT 2022-10-02 and ends at the same time on 2022-12-21, i.e. 80 days. Incidentally, daylight savings did not exist in the UK at this time. Not that this level of precision matters, haha.

There are 11~12 subforums I can't directly post in, so I won't be counting them. Though it seems the Paranormal/Conspiracy subforum is up right now and would fit into the schedule, so I might need to add that to the list as well.
But with those unpostable subforums removed, there are about 70 subforums, so that leaves me with 10 days to spare even!

:siren: Phone users - the table below is too wide, so be sure to scroll to the right to see the urls!
The plan and the journey so far:

the real challenge is coming up with the same thread you could post in every single subforum that would work no matter what. the universal thread. something all goons have in common and will talk about in any space.

i'm trying to come up with something, but other than maybe pants making GBS threads, i can't think of anything. but i know the unified thread equation exists... it's real and waiting to be discovered.

I'm actually really excited for this one. I have a few ideas, but I think I know what I want to go with. I also have a new microphone arriving in the mail this week, so I'm excited about being able to use that too!
For some reason, I thought it was much, much lower on the list, but I guess the Video Game forums are only a week away!
