Considering the launching of a very important, positive but provocative thread tomorrow...
but vacillating over a title...

Loss of Heavenly Salvation, Odious Damnation and Warm Roosting to Ye Who Refuse the Light

or should I just go with

You Suck, You Dirty Guys Who Differ With Me!

OK, fine, I won't start a separate thread on the flakiness of partners. Just be glad you married yours, that's all I have to say. Whether last minute cancels or arriving really late, I am just up to here with frustration about this phenomenon. One cancelled the morning of because she got her "moon" even though the night before we had confirmed!!! end rant

Is a thread complaining about negative threads negative?

Meta-negative?

You Suck, You Dirty Guys Who Differ With Me!

We all know that no matter what title you put in the Topic line, it won't be more than about ten posts until the title might as well have been "You Suck, You Dirty Guys Who Differ With Me!"

We should have a contest to see how much emotional distance there can be between a thread title and the bile spewed by the half dozen posters who inevitably take over and wreck things for the rest of us.

So why not come up with something creative. C'mon Jennie, be original. Post up something about how cute fuzzy little kittens are. Or about the perfect 5.9 handcrack. See how long it takes for someone to say you only think kittens are cute because you've been brainwashed by your religious leaders. Or that if you like 5.9 handcracks you must be a Republican.

This could be fun!

I'm mostly positive, some things raise my ire though. Sorry if my thread was your reason for this thread.

..Odious Damnation and Warm Roosting to Ye Who Refuse the Light...

Jennie, a warm roost doesn't sound so bad?

sorry, but I had to bring up the oldest and most hotly contested question,

Ciff Bar vs Power Bar?

Cliff vs. Power... definitely a temperature dependent question.

Right, Clif vs. Power offers a way to turn this into a really nasty thread...

Take a Power Bar out of its package, massage it into the shape of a small log, and put it just beside a trail you know you're going to be using as an approach the next morning.

Then, on the approach, as you pass the spot where you put it, stop short and say to your partner in an excited voice "Whoa! Look at that. There's a turd by the trail!" Then pause. "Well, it sure looks like a turd."

At which point pick up the turd-shaped Power Bar, sniff it, and say "Yup, it sure smells like sh#t."

Then bite off about half and start chewing, and wave the remaining chunk in front of your partner's face, and mumble around that mouthful of yuck "You want the rest?"

Eric, I think Wade either needs a bath or to spend less time in the sun... also it's a violation of beer drinkers anonymous to allow (even if partially protected by the mans foam insert) to be in direct sunlight. I suggest we start a midnight vampire , beer riddled ascent of something short neAr everyone. Amen bro..can I get a witness.....

if you like 5.9 handcracks you must be a Republican.

Repugs are indifferent to anything smaller than a #3 cameltwat.
