Since we're talking about posts look at this (specifically the comments) there is a very long chain of geology puns, some of them are quite funny.

Wait did I just make a post about posts under a cartoon about posts? Postception!

Hah, "first post" dying? No way, most popular video's on YT still suffer from this syndrome, I've never really been annoyed by it, it's a part of our internet traditions, calling the first post, and then calling the first poster an idiot followed up by several clever responses on what the first poster was in fact first at.

It's an evolving tradition.

I've never felt the urge to claim Firsties, largely because whenever I arrive at a board that hasn't been posted to yet, by the time I compose and submit my post, there's usually one or more comments already (I'm a very slow typist), so I'd look pretty stupid to have claimed "First!"
