Does the use of "The former #3" implies #4 is ready to challenge the current #3 again:?:

The award for becoming #1 is the "Made it, Ma! Top of the world!" trophy, the trouble is, #1's have a short life expectancy:(

Let's hope the current #1 doesn't happen to read this and take any offence from those words...:!:

By "life expectancy" if you're talking about "time of reign" then as far as I know the current #1 (regarding to this topic) must have been staying there for quite a long time... Also there are many sporting examples of "long-lived" #1's, e.g. Roger Federer, Pete Sampras, Annika Sorenstam, Tiger Woods, ...

If you mean "life" as its general meaning then I don't find any scientific evidence supporting this... And it could be interpreted as some kind of cursing...:(

Maybe it's the quiet complacency of not knowing your #1:?:

If you look upon #1 in the more general meaning of 'leader', then there's several examples. The American leaders for example (Lincoln, Kennedy...). Also, as a trained platoon leader myself, I am aware that during WWII at our eastern border, platoon leaders had the shortest life expectancy within the platoon.

PS. I think the Flying Finn at #28 is soon going to be among the top 3 newcomers of the year, even though he missed the first 2 1/2 months of the season!:)

The Flying Finn at #28 is only 9 pts short of the Norwegian at #26 but still a long short of the top 10 or so competitors.

I know it's pointless but it's still a nice thing to celebrate, so...

With a wry grin, the Aussie Battler at #5 quitely slipped past the Wicked Lady at #4... And their positions are now swapped... But his very next obstacle, the much dreaded Riddler at #3, looks like a gigantically daunting challenge for any non-Russian speaker...

According to Babelfish this means Good to grant to upper 3

PS I'm not sure that I'm happy about foreign languages being used, since I don't really have the time to translate everything and I do have to monitor everything on the site, so please keep these quotes to a minimum.

Sorry luna, but I think this outbreak of Russian is at an end, it must have been this hot weather.

Re: Добро пожаловать до верхние 3

The English before Bablefish distorted it, was:

Welcome to the top three.

Sorry luna, in reply to MCC I think I must post this:

I guarantee it's nothing offensive, and would like to challenge MCC to see if he could guess my original English sentence of 7 words...:D
