Title: What is the ideal number of Mercy threads?
Post by: briscoetheque on September 14, 2010, 04:32:34 AM
I really think we need to settle this once and for all... Clearly some feel that there are not enough threads about mercy, the new lyrics, the amount of saliva bono expelled whilst singing it, and the levels of indigestion suffered during the 2nd verse.

So help us out people, perhaps we can achieve consensus.

How many Mercy threads do we need?

I'll say 14.

 ;D. good question. i'm glad they've played it to stop the endless pleading for it on this site. do you think they'll play acrobat for us now?  :D

i think the song title is ironic in that we now need a bit of 'mercy' from mercy on these pages.

I'd be quite happy with one, entitled "U2 play new song Mercy; Every Breaking Wave Is Fifty Times Better"  :D

One is sufficient. I think we're a little overboard right now.  ::)

Does this count as a Mercy thread?  ???

I wanted pi, but since it wasn't an option, I chose one.

No. This is NOT a Mercy thread. This is just a tribute.

Ah, so if we're going by the studio version, it's "An interminably, unjustifiably large number which causes the threads to drag on and on and on and on far past what they reasonably should have"? :P

Ah, so if we're going by the studio version, it's "A more than justifiably large number which causes the threads to continue on and on and on and on about the wonderful gem of a song U2 has decided to finally play after years of wanting and yearning "? :P

Yes :)

There's a mathematical formula to answer this

Mercy Threads >/= (atyclb threads + htdaab threads + 1)
