Why do we bother with a topic?
    #4564839 - 08/21/05 11:58 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Threads veer off almost immediately into unchartered waters never intended by the thread starter, so why even title them?

Hunting mosquitoes with a bow. That's funny Swami. :laugh:

You got to start somewhere.

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

Swami, if you are truly concerned about the rain forests then may I suggest switching to a Baday to save on toilet papper.

You have to get them with a heart shot right under the shoulder else you may have to track them for miles to put them down.

I just want every thread to end in psychoanalyzation of the poster.

I think swami wants to kill his toaster and fuck his refrigerator while screaming "PETER FRAMPTON MUST DIE!" atop a mig29 doing a barrel roll under the golden gate bridge as a unicorn poops a rainbow sherbert hotdog onto his chest. All because his mother didn't hug him after he struck out in t-ball.

You bring hogs into the bathroom with you? No wonder why it takes you so long.

Swami lives in the desert. I would suggest a friendly dog, as they use less water.

What's the alternative? Label each thread by a number?

The "topic" is really just something to catch people's attention and spawn conversation. Being humans, they have about a two second attention span and will go off topic before they realize what the thread's about. But it's the best way.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

We bother with a topic cause all we wanna do is hug each other and build trees in the forest. But we've learnt all these nifty words n' shit to keep safe and sound from one another. This topic is my safety zone and the shield I'm willing to let you play with for now. Come talk with me about it... but really... I just wanna love you. Woof woof. I'm like a dumb dog.
