Why are Republicans Wrong about Everything?

Politics, God and Religion vs. Science

these two threads are phenomenal, rarely off the front page here.

the "culprit" behind them is the same guy.

don't get me wrong, i'm not out to destroy these threads. someone recently started a feeble thread trying to do that, complaining that they "dilute" the climbing discussions. well, i think they also dilute the off-topic discussions.

i'm just trying to understand. to the credit of these threads, they seem to keep certain obsessive individuals happily occupied, people whose turbulent milieux and manner of (to strain the sense of the word) reasoning often destroyed the spirit of discussion a couple of years ago in predecessors to these threads. perhaps it's a tradeoff.

me, i just can't seem to get anything decent going. among my recent flops:

euell gibbons
my wife beats me
national parkitecture

feel free to critique my thread concepts as well as to analyze dr. F's two 800-lb gorillas.

the demographics control the tone. The two "gorilla threads" are powered basically by six or seven folks whom average a few hundred posts each.

I too have had my floppers- just recently the "once upon a fire" thread - a near zeeerohwww. (sniff snifff) I thoroghly expected more from the CALI people on that since i musta saved several thousand from burning to hell lol! But hey,, the sun has just risen to the east, casting a golden shine to the landscape outside mah window- its a golden man...

californians don't like the subject of fires, ron. we only talk about them when we have to, and feeling nostalgic about them? you can't get nostalgic about bad things that are sure to happen again soon.

ah, now we're getting somewhere, and this red-bearded entity could well be the key, since it was either he or his clone who, along with myself, was privy to recent conversations with the good doctor himself in a genuine on-topic setting which could bring us to the heart of at least one of the gorillas.

I wonder what would happen if people didn't post to those threads? Hmmmmmmmm?????

As far as failures Tony, you've had a lot of great posts you don't have to be concerned. But if you want front page action, might I suggest a thread titled "Why the democrats and their ideas are so lame". Be prepared to bump it repeatedly like Fattrad on an overdose of go-juice to keep it on the front page. LOL

um, in response to the query posted by the entity with the "drljefe" avatar:

i am the only tony bird in this physical vicinity.

i am one of two guitar-playing tony birds on this planet with an interest in ethnic music.

i am one of two wearers of a "tony bird" nametag at the todd gordon party earlier this year; i'm the one most closely resembling the avatar photo which appears adjacent. i don't think the other fellow at that party plays the guitar, but i could be wrong.

when you've made wikipedia, you know you've made it. this is not me:

Thread idea
Why Old Fakkas Refuse Crashpads
Or
The Legend of the Honey Bear and other outdated yet functional smoking utensils.
Or
Well
just add a rubber chicken to the mix.

now for the trick question:

how's rosebud?

p.s.:

olde fakkas set in their ways. a matter of well-honed conscience. your ass on a crashpad destroys all credit for a sit start.

honey bears? don't they get smoked along with the contents? yuck.

i see ronno is now submerged in the prurient interest of scrabble.

my trick question is taking some time, which means things are getting weirder and weirder. we could be engaging:

1. el jefe grande

2. clone of same

3. the ghost of orson welles

is this thread drifting already? i think not ...
