    Default Here is what sucks about OT

    How many music related threads do we have to sift through?
    And I think most humans in general have an affinity for music.
    Ban me for these outrageous thoughts.

    Have I posted in the wrong spot?

    we need some velocipedarchivists that know each and every thread that exists
    and they need to tell all these guys to use the search function every time they start a duplicate thread

    Yes. Paceline.net is the appropriate subforum.

    It hasn't snowed yet. Go ride then order a fat bike to avoid opening another stupid thread ;-)

    I'm more annoyed by threads asking for trainer/roller advice than anything music related.

    Human nature. Whattya gonna do? If people actually did use the search function, we'd never have a new thread, and the forum would be a ghost town. When I was learning to fly - back when the internet was called a "newstand" - I'd peruse the various flying mags, and over time, I noticed that there was always, in one mag or another, an article about "That Workhorse, the 172" or "Cessna's Venerable 172", etc. Even if the subject's old, people want a new chat about it.

    So a guy goes to prison. His first night in, he hears someone shout "84!", and it's immediately followed by laughter. Someone else shouts "23!", and more laughter's heard.

    He asks his cellmate what's up with the numbers.

    "Oh that's just how we tell jokes," the cellmate replies. "They're all so old, and we know 'em so well, that instead of saying the whole thing, we just shout out their number."

    So the new guy waits for a pause, then shouts out "37!"

    Doesn't even get a chuckle. Just crickets. "What happened?" he asks.

    His cellmate shrugs. "Some guys just can't tell a joke."

    Not to dogpile or nothing, but so ya know, like, ride reports for example. I doubt the autumn leaves look much different now than eight or 10 years ago, and yeah maybe some of the bikes have disc brakes now and oversize stuffs, but we we lay our bikes down in front of the same darn bridges on twisty forest roads year in, year out, to take a pic to put in the galleries or what have you. :)

    It may be connected to the old conversation and use some of the same words and phrases, but it's not only the same ol' thang. Still fresh, yo.

    I don't like metarock. That song's qoo.

    I like Sleater-Kinney's exposed cliche style.

    Youtube presented an add for a hair straightener with that video.

    Pretty much sums up my experience with the internet...

    As a kid in the 60s and 70s I was big into motocross and riding dirt bikes. Read all the mags. All the reviews and opinions. I then drop out of that scene for 20 year but decide to slowly get back into it a while back. Started to read the mags again. I should have saved the cash. If you were handed just the articles without photos you would hard pressed to tell which one was 20-30 years old and which one was new.
    Still bought the mags though...
