Hey, Kickstart70? Come closer. Closer. A little closer. Just a wee bit closer!

We really are a bunch of romantics aren't we?

*hears Kickstart gurgling*

Aww, he's so happy he's crying. That's nice.

PROBLEM: It's all gone pearshaped.
SOLUTION: Delete the site, start over.

I suppose there's really some happy medium, like in the >1000 but <5000 range that lets good conversations grow without too many idiots ruining them.

Kickstart70, could you please explain what you were thinking when you posted this? I don't get it.

About that thread though, women in their early 20s were a big part of what made my 20s & 30s such hell. It's not that they were afraid of commitment, it's that (e.g.) sunday Linda made a commitment to me, tuesday she made a commitment with Susie, saturday noght Susie & found out about each other by accident, sunday night Linda cried to me that nobody really loved or understood her, wednesday Susie called me to come over because Linda was threatening suicide, then monday Linda disappeared and rumor had it she took off to be a punk band's shared groupie. Eventually I decided that women should be lesbians until they're 30, it'd be much easier for men. But anyway, and the point is, I didn't post of any my observations in the Green so where's my damn cookie?

davy: no sarcasm intended, and it's not about the question asked. The responses in that thread are above the usual quality, IMO, and not talking about my own. It's a good thread that shows we're not all embittered grouches who hang around here.

A Long December: Those three comments are amazing.

ALongDecember: those are, subtly, among the three funniest posts ever made on MeFi. What a great find.

Sweet Romantics? Or Tomcats' Weiners. You decide.

In some way or another, aren't we all looking for a used car?
posted by brain_drain at 11:44 AM on September 1, 2007 [3 favorites]


Those 3 comments are the total input from Fred. Questions rush to mind. Did he ever find a car? Is he still walking, footsore and weary, thoroughly dejected because MetaFilter failed him? Poor Fred.

Was that fred guy (found by ALongDecember) seriously that clueless, or was that some kind of performance art?

Okay, that was simply the greatest flameout ever.

And I want to be like Grumblebee when I grow up.

"We're not all embittered grouches who hang around here."

An embittered grouch is a sweet romantic who got mugged by reality. You're young, you'll learn.

I found it typing in real-name user names to see anything was funny. I don't know, the great thing is that no one in any of the threads even noticed, maybe they thought it was a random "I like pancakes" thing. Not sure why he thought he was being bashed around, maybe because he thought people were ignoring him.

C'mon, y'all. He flamed out after a thrice-repeated non-sequitor with a minor paranoid rant in the Death of Irony thread. It was performance art.

I'm just to sensitive for this MetaFilter stuff I guess.

Fred? If you're reading this, I have a car for you. It needs a little work, but I'll let it go for a couple grand. Don't worry about looking up the book value, just trust me, it's a good deal.

I think maybe de was alluding to ownership.
posted by It's Raining Florence Henderson at 12:58 PM on September 1, 2007


Huh. The existence of this thread gives me a place to say that pretty much everyone in that other thread is dumb as a fucking stump.

Yes, that means you.
36, why do you ask?
As a matter of fact, I have.
No, the problem is your own stupidity.
Very happy.
Best of luck to you too.

Holy crap, I was just reading grumblebee's response, and I realized that "bedroom" is an anagram of "boredom".

I guess that's not really related to anything, but huh. Look at that.

Oh crap.

I swore that if I ever became one of those people who used "to" instead of "too" that I would subject myself to harsh discipline. Please... anyone... come on by. The door is unlocked, and there is a 2x4 with a nail through the end right inside the entry.

Swing away.

Said quonsar: "i have a used car. in my pants."

Something in there has to be.

Dear AskHitler,

How can I be more sensitive and caring towards people of different backgrounds than me?

Yours,

Very ingenious, Kickstart70. To prevent negativity and cynicism from entering that AskMe thread, you're directing it all here, right? Well, it's not going to work, thanks to the 'fred & the used car' derail. Okay Cynics, everybody to AskMe 70423 on the double!!

Actually, I seem to recall that grumblebee is older than me. Which means he's fuckin' old.
