This comes from the theories that the world would end in the year 2012 and of course, the movie "2012". Lenny Bruce is a reference to the song by R.E.M, "It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)"
The song was released in 1987 in the form of a vinyl disc.
L.B comes from the quartet of individuals listed in the lyrics of the song that all have the initials L.B., Lenny Bruce, Leonard Bernstein, Leonid Brezhnev, and Lester Bangs. The lead singer of R.E.M., Michael Stipe Claimed that the references to L.B. in the song came from a dream he had where he was attending a party and found himself in a room full of famous people that shared these initials.
On December 21, 2012, a radio station in Cleveland, played the song 156 times back to back to coincide with the supposed Mayan apocalypse.
With the recent forum software upgrade, the title system is a little bit different. For one, any title you unlock will be available for use from that point on. With that in mind, any hidden title you earn will be usable at any point, not just for the specific post count it shows for. That also means that when you get to that specific post count for a hidden title, it will stay beyond that post count, rather than revert back to the previous title. While we could have simply removed the hidden ranks due to the new system, we decided to keep them in place at the same post counts to unlock.
The update to post ranks is finally here! Sorry to take so long on that. It was a bit difficult trying to keep most of them the same, add new ones, and still keep things on a fairly steady title change scale. Oh, and laziness.
First off, Pig Tamer is not the final title anymore! In fact, it's just been flat out removed. It was placed there before because at the time, we only had one person even close to it. Now that so many are passed it, it's not really needed as a placeholder anymore. There are now far more ranks after 5000, and a few minor tweaks to some lower ranks. There's been a few new hidden ranks added as well. For now, we'll wait until people find them before added them to the spoiler'd list.
(Once you get past the post number mentioned, you have that title until you reach the next number)
