I think Dan is worried someone will surpass him in likes if it's easy to like.

It's the like/post ratio that really matters (kind of like the HDL/LDL ratio that's more important than total cholesterol numbers). I think @Yehuda57 takes the crown for that measure.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

That's really for a few reasons.
1. His amazing wit.
2. His amazing wit.
3. His amazing wit.
4. Most of his posts are in JS, so they aren't added to the post count, but his likes are.

I am totally aware of those reasons. Doesn't diminish a well deserved Crown. Reasons 1-3 are contributing factors to reason 4 - knowing what/where not to post.

Awww, thanks. As my grandmother would say, "that and a nickel will get me a subway token."

When last was a subway token a nickel? Lowest I can recall is $0.75, and that's probably before you were born. https://mashable.com/2015/03/22/new-york-city-subway-fare/#C0idJbU0WPq2

That's probably even before @Yehuda57's parents were born.

Actually its  "That and a nickel will get you on the subway."  The phrase is from when the subway cost a nickel that you used to get through the turnstyle. Until 1948. I'm old enough that my mother used to say that.

a) My grandmother was born before I was. Weird, I know.
b) You provide a link answering your own question
c) A grandmother's idiom is not usually factual.

Thank you. I actually posted in order to elicit some wit, not in order to get into a ridiculous discussion.

That being said:

a) Your grandmother was paying for Subway rides since birth?
b) The link is there to substantiate my challenge.
c) Obviously. Very fine woman she was, your grandmother. Fondly remembered.
