Given the plethora of 'association' threads on this forum, I thought I'd start one myself. The rules of this one are that I start off by entering the word 'association'. Each respondee must reply by inputting the word 'association', nothing more, nothing less. However, if simply inputting the word 'association' does not meet the criteria for the minimum number of characters per post, simply type in the word 'Association' a second time. (I'll get me plot. I mislaid it here somewhere.....)

So:

Association.

Or you could, if you prefer, use the more Slavic rooted союз! (adds Frenchie!).

Just for interest I put 'association' into Google and got 285,000,000 hits.

The American Heart Association gets top spot.

Since there are 10 hits shown per google page,
with only the next 10 results pages linked on the bottom bar,
it would have taken me 2,850,000 clicks of my mouse button to get to the last hit,

At a conservative 1 click per second (which would need fast broadband but would be just about do-able)
it would take me 47,500 minutes
or 791 hours
or just over a month of continuous clicking to find out what the last one was.

Trying to limit it somewhat (ideally to get a googlewhack) I put in 'Association mouthpiece' and still got 175,000 hits, but with tMP at number 2, with one of Brasscrest's posts in 'Movie Association Thread' being highlighted.

Not quite sure how Google works, but if you put in
association association
- i.e. the same search term, just twice - it only comes up with 33,000,000 hits and a completely different top spot - this time the canadian medical association.

I'm sure I said 'Mornington Crescent'. Doesn't that mean that the turnwise counter-provoking ombudsman convention comes into play, and that all subsequent association-based moves are illegal?
