Quiet night in the forums

  • #1

    You can hardly hear anything. Just a slight breeze blowing. It's kind of neat.

    Imagine what would happen if you posted a youtube link about the five people slowly burned to death by Christians in Kenya because they were suspected of sorcery in obedience to the biblical book ofExodus.

    Oh my goodness! How sad...

    I went through all the unread, and unanswered posts for the last three days. There just isn't much to make fun of. I like it when an uber-sensitive establishment yuk, pops on the forums like it's his first time on the internet. That's kind of fun!

    Or, when some "genius" has figured out a chess variant that is so amazing he expects a reward. That's fun!

    Have to settle for the lesser kind... where they post a bullet/blitz game and crow about how instructive and powerful their moves are when it's just 1-2 move tactics after a blunder Tongue out

    Seems to be plenty of that still.

  • #7

    So true. The "analyze my bullet game", is almost depressingLaughing

    I don't usually find a whole lot in the regular forums. As soon as it gets interesting the threads get locked. But they can go on and on in the Open Discussion Group.

    ODG is our competition, Timotheous. I like it when the mods are having trouble figuring out which forum is whichLaughing

    The word "troll" is definitely the most overused word on the internet. It doesn't really mean anything anymore. It seems like it used to be an insult of sorts, but now it's really just used instead of thinking. You would think that there would be all these imaginative descriptions, insults, compliments, etc., now that the entire world can speak to each other in real time. But no, just like texting has reduced the vernacular to acronyms, certain words like "troll", has replaced originality and wit.

    Just a thought, on a quiet night in the forums...

    I sometimes like to think about what my life would be like without electricity.  If I just shut off electric power to my house.  Often I think it would be better.  Not that I could quit modern entertainment cold turkey so to speak... but slowly ween myself away.

    That's what I think sometimes, as we fill the silence on this quiet night... :)

    Strangely, my 16-y.o. granddaughter has a cat named "Bob," who looks just like that big orange monster in post #10.

  • #16

    The forecast for tomorrow night is (-17) F .  I know what my life will be like if the electricity goes off . . .

    Heh, I googled something like "quiet too quiet" and that was first picture in images.  Maybe your cat is famous!

    Again, he's my granddaughter's cat & he's not famous, just lazy!  I just remembered that her other grandma has a big/fat orange cat as well, who's also named "Bob," & who is also not famous but just as lazy.
