Predict the date - 500,000 posts?

We are at 499,394 post right now (499,395 with this one) so in the spirit of TadW's Predict the date - 40,000 members thread, I ask you:

- When will this happen?
- Where will it be?
- What will it be about?
- Who will write it?

My prediction: July 5th, and it will be in the Introduction forum, written by the 40,000 member that really really wants to say how great MR is!

I vote July 1st, definitely in the llounge, and I predict it will be some otterly fabulous post about some sort of rodent or marsupial. Who? I'm not sure. But I am otterly certain it will be an illustrious member of MR...

Ah, thanks dreams! Funny how the fine print just gets missed.

540 some odd posts? We should be able to do that in a couple of days!

Maybe someone should start a "540 bottles of beer on the wall" thread?

Judging from our last attempt, we'll be drunk before we hit 535.....

Although, come to think of it, I don't think there's an easy way to identify post number 500,000. If we go by the number assigned, we've already passed 500,000, as my previous post was 505263.

Hmm.. I know - just before I post this message, the post count stands at 499,527. It it's up by one afterwards, we can probably convert from post number to number of posts.

Yes! That post quoted above was indeed 499528, and the post number (in URL) is 505271, so post 505743 should be the 500,000th post, if no more get deleted meanwhile.

Yes, the off-by-one error is the commonest programming fault, I'm sure!

I just can't resist playing with numbers.
