this one REALLY tickled me, for a little too long afterwards:
I'm gonna use that somewhere somehow.
because threads before 2007 don't seem to exist anymore but it when grockle replied to someone with "I think you sound like a cunt". You had to be there...
I was looking for that too.
- When Mirrilondon started one of her insane threads about ViKrAm and Ibzo put JackoPopcorn
- When the lead singer from Editors came back to defend his band from all us champions and alcxxk said "While you're here, would you mind telling us what kind of disease someone DOES need?"
- When I was arguing with Welshbulb (crazy old man) and had a picture of marcofella on my profile and he responded with "You're one of the ugliest people I've ever seen! Unlucky!" and the ensuing arguments.
but the popcorn one was instantly funnier
in context, truly incredible.
Luckily everyone in my office has gone home so I don't have to explain why I'm laughing
That's the first time I've seen that.
that is great :D
I was rather baffled by it all.
well, especially the bit where Crablin asks if she's activated it.
I remember somebody once saying that Joy Division sounded like a Dalek wanking in a cathedral, which I laughed at for pretty much three years

and read down...
I miss out on all the fun.
it still makes me laugh
followed by this reply
made me laugh quite a lot at the time
(this was in the days of the swear filter)
absolutely broke me on the day.
and I didn't.
Shouldn't that be in "Most Retarded Reply This'd By Biggest Retard?"
nice work driving all the women away, douchebag.
argument could be aimed at any number of threads around here, but it seems particularly unnecessary when someone has committed the minor crime of asking a load of music fans - who've likely been to many a festival - where a good place to get a tent is. anyway, no big deal
That doesn't change the fact that you COULD just Google that. And that the very first result you get (and most likely most of the others) have extensive customer reviews.
Furthermore, idiots who come into message boards with their idiotic questions that could easily be answered just by typing their query into Google are SATAN. And you should probably bear in mind that I'm obviously not the only one who finds it annoying because there's actually a joke site dedicated to satirising the phenomenon.
Then there's the whole idea of asking for advice on a tent. IT'S A FUCKING TENT. Just buy the first one you see, you fucking moron.
I could go on...
have you ever been to a festival where it's pissed rain all weekend and you've come along with some shoddy tent which leaks like fuck, cos it was the first one you saw in the shop? not a great experience.
people finding things annoying on a mesage board shocker. there's a thread over on the music board asking if 'Nebraska' is worth a punt. why not go over and tell him to take his queries to google? might as well be consistent.
Logic Fail: Did your tent leak because it was the first one you saw in the shop, or because you failed to put it up correctly? Or maybe because the weather was too extreme for your budget.
Last I checked - ALL tents are supposed to shelter you from the elements to some degree. That's the point of the tent.
More Logic Fail: How do you compare a tent, that has ONE objective purpose that can be verified by anyone with half a mind, to a music album, that is subject to an infinite amount of differing, all valid opinions entirely dependent on the mindset of the listener.
I'm adding you to the list.
but both actions involve asking people you trust for opinions on something that they're well-informed on.
as you say,if they were to google it 'the very first result you get (and most likely most of the others) have extensive customer reviews.' this would also be true of 'nebraska'
That was an exact comparison. It was only ten minutes ago. You should remember it.
I don't really feel I need to go into why going onto a music site to ask for opinions on music is different to going onto a music site to ask for opinions on canvas shelters. Again.
SOME music fans use tents to go to festivals.
And if we're going to use that thread as a barometer - ONE music fan uses a tent and can be bothered to talk about it.
So in conclusion: The thread failed. The original poster's argument against why I said it would fail was itself Fail. You failed to justify it in this thread and just ended up talking yourself in tangles for my entertainment. And I'm about half an hour away from finishing all my work for the day and having some food, content in the knowledge that you'll be unable to reply - for reasons technical and otherwise.
i think you've lost this round. you're probably not used to that, but just let it go. it'll be forgotten about
How have you come to this conclusion?
You've basically asserted that because one time you didn't do enough research and got wet = you got wet because you didn't do the research. I already pointed out how this was a flawed conclusion (which is a polite way of saying it makes no sense and is totally retarded), to which you've replied with nothing but "you've lost" - which is cheeky to say the least.
I could go on: I have a tent. It belonged to my parents. I don't know where it came from. I took it to Reading once and it got totally flooded. My girlfriend at the time was pissed. I've since taken it to other places and it hasn't been flooded, despite being exposed to similar extremes of weather.
My question: Why didn't the tent get flooded other times I used it? According to your anecdotal evidence, it should have been ruined every time because it was literally the first tent that I saw.
you tangle people up in metaphysical knots to confuse them. simplify a bit.
'You've basically asserted that because one time you didn't do enough research and got wet = you got wet because you didn't do the research' - yes, exactly. which was a response to you saying research wasn't necessary.
'According to your anecdotal evidence, it should have been ruined every time because it was literally the first tent that I saw.' - not what i said at all. i said it's possible you could end up with a shoddy one.
and for the record, i know how to put up a tent.
so if you come back with more meta-nonsense, my non-response won't be an acknowledgement of defeat
Your "I'm suffering technical difficulties" cop-out will, though.
There's nothing meta about any of my posts. All I do is ask you to explain your own arguments.
If you can't, then that calls into question how 'right' you are, doesn't it?
Try it next time you have a defensible position.
Haha. I know where you live, you qunt.
but the link I have for it doesn't work anymore :(
- bad form
This one was pretty sweet
Anyway the one where chrisiscool said lots of amazing stuff about J "Dick" Traynor, and then Stealthy said watcha talkin about Willis?
And the one where meths listed things he would like for his birthday party and said tanks instead of thanks and theo said hmm that'll be tricky have you tried the imperial war museum
WHY CAN'T THEY GET THE SITE TO WORK PROPERLY YET OR IF YOU CAN FIND THEM THEN THANK YOU. I TRIED GOOGLE AND EVERYTHING AND FOR ONE I EVEN FOUND A LINK TO THE EXACT THREAD ADDRESS BUT IT WASN'T FOUND SO HAS VANISHED
I can't be bothered to find threads that don't have me in them.
just replace that bit with /community/boards/social/
the site still doesn't work though
with bamos meths and sadpunk which had me in hysterics. i will hunt it out.
much this: http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/music/4144555#r2570906
This accolade is probably the pinnacle of my 30 years on this planet however. I just want to thank my manager, my Mum - who's a source of constant inspiration - and Yvette Fielding.
but don't get uptight about it.
everyone knows it was a fake campaign of hate by dave and me to make theo fake quit dis but actually just go on his hols
that dave is not credited with this. appalled.
