Off Topic Thread NOT Presented by TDPF

Postby gargantua » Tue Apr 23, 2013 9:25 pm

Wrote a song about it, want to hear it here goes:

So I had this red Acura that I bought in December 91. It worked out well for me, since I just now gave it away. It had a couple of plastic lizards that I thought were good luck charms, and I kept 'em. I'm wondering it they will bring my new '13 good luck, or if I should try new lizards.

So, the next post should be about your laundry, or the poop you stepped in. This could really be fun....or not. Because the Admin said we should not go off topic or be banned. But what if being off topic IS the topic? Oh, the existential crisis!

Sorry, Garg. All my threads are off-topic.

I think what Jason was saying was that if you start a thread on Obamacare, "Clinton's Penis!" and "Chappaquiddick!" are off-topic. I think even some things that are seemingly on-topic are kind of off-topic, just judging from the groans they generate. For instance, a thread on background checks shouldn't lead to "Hitler took away Jews guns!" or "Clinton's penis!"

As best I can tell, random topics are still encouraged, as long as they don't pertain to Clinton's penis.

And now, of course, all I want to do is start a thread titled Clinton's penis.

My neighbor's dog keeps on looking out the window at me. What should I do about this?

How come so many people are up late tonight? I see Levitan and Remember_Me and I are all on here way past 2 am (or 1 am Forum Time, which seems to be following the time from Denver).

I'm always up late. That is when I do my internet work. I code PHP, JavaScript and MySQL modifications for IP.Board. They make commercial forum software.

I usually head for the sheets around 6-8 AM and sleep until mid-afternoon.

Oops that wasn't supposed to be on-topic.

So what about the price of tree wrenches.

So nightcrawlers come out when it rains, get on the sidewalk, die, and start to stink.

Who do they think they are?

I had a friend over who stayed pretty late.

And he brought and left a bottle of Glenlivet.

I'm checking my late night ramblings now for anything too embarrassing.
