:roflmao2: Some by a poster that does not like the tone in 50+?

At least I got to read them before the deletes (RTBD).

Cycling content: Took this at the top of the climb up Stunt Road.

Are not guns the political hot topic these days? You should be banished to P&R for that.

I have often wondered where Statler and Waldorf hung out on their days off ;) I didn't know they like to bike

This is a pretty well stocked pub! I just poured a Weyerbacher Double Simcoe. Nice! (in a bitter sort of way)

BillyD 03-07-13 10:41 PM

I'm sorry, but that's top shelf. I'm going to have to bill you for that.

BluesDawg 03-07-13 10:48 PM

Put it on my account. (on account of I'm not going to pay you)

To CB Hi: What prompted my post as to cliquishness is that 50+ has gotten cliquish, simply put. You don't see it because you are inside. I am also 50+, but view things from other perspectives and am constantly performing sociological analysis on ALL the forums to keep them interesting and manage conflict levels to keep them from getting out of hand or from getting too vanilla. My backgound is Social Psychology and Sociology and Philosophy of Mind, by the way and essentially, what I am is a Cultural Analyst.

OK, Fooish threads can stay in here.....I really don't have a problem with that.

Sometimes if a thread is more relevant to other forums, we are going to move them. If it's also particularly topical, we have an option to move a copy of the thread and leave the original. That may be an interesting solution, because then the posters can read both and see more than one dominant point of view on a particular topic. If we clone the thread, we will leave a link posted in to the original, as well to direct you to that thread as well.

If it goes political, that WILL be moved to P&R.

If it gets nasty and insulting, the nasty, insulting posts will be split from the thread and set into their own thread in the real dumping ground of Bikeforums.....Trollheim, where I keep my tame trolls and political prisoners that can ONLY see Trollheim because they're locked up in the dungeon until they earn their way back into society.

I believe we are now in a 'nuff said" point on this topic. I've explained things as clearly as I can.

As to Pub 51, yeah, it's a good Fooish 50+ Off Topic thread, so yeah...and when it gets too big to load properly, we'll just close it and open a new version, just like we do with Addiction.

I don't find it hard to believe that you can see things going on that we don't. I wonder if you would mind describing the general kinds of things you see in your analyses that lead to your conclusion about cliquishness.. without revealing anyone's identity of course? This isn't a challenge. I'm genuinely interested and others might be too.

I thought your warning about the tone of things was a good move, but this other stuff surprised me.

Anyone got any raspberry extract?

Daspydyr 03-08-13 07:21 PM

I've got a new bottle of bitters. Olde fashioned tonight, break out the Maccallum!

Anyone ever ditch high school to break the seal on a bottle or two of Annie Green Springs or Boone's Farm?

Dudelsack 03-08-13 07:31 PM

MacCallum is a grand idea. As soon as I am done my trainer session. Canuck here.. It was Molson Canadian and only once during school. My Dad taught in the same school so my behaviour was always under watch. :)

JanMM 03-08-13 08:12 PM

Any extra charge for the Guinness Black Lager I had?

Boone's Farm Apple Wine! Good ol' BFAW. After drinking it you'd bend over the bushes and try to say it. "bufaaawww..."

Ha. Your cluelessless proves you're not a proper member of the clique.

Cougrrcj 03-09-13 06:48 AM

Remember Champale? Or as Fred Sanford would say, Cham-pipple - that's what you get when you mix your Champale with Ripple.

I never touched Boone's Farm since my dad made his own -- we had probably 20-30 cases under the basement stairs, and sometimes when I was going out on a date one bottle would go missing. :innocent: Had to bring the empty back though for proper 'inventory'....

Beer? I have always looked older than my age, so even in high school I was going to the beverage store for 3.2 beer. In Ohio back then, 3.2% alcohol beer was sold on Sunday and to those unfortunates that were between 18 and 21. Regular beer and liquor/wine were 21-older only. Bars would stamp your hand for which age group. At Ohio State, again since I looked older, I was the designated dorm go-fer when it came to going to the liquor store. I'd buy ten bottles for the guys on the stipulation that they paid for mine... Ahhhh, youth!

I liked it quite a bit.
Lame, disturbing, and oddly compelling...much like the music of Enya.

I honestly think that 50+ is on life support now and making significant changes to it will kill it.

That's my concern as well. We're trying to fix something that only a couple of people believe to be broken.

BluesDawg 03-09-13 09:25 PM

+1

Something about the squeaky wheel. IMHO this "cliquishness" thing has always been much ado about nothing.

jdon 03-10-13 07:07 AM

Agree as well but I am also willing to give this a try. If it doesn't work for me, well, there is nothing nailing my feet to the BF floor.

Dan Burkhart 03-10-13 09:55 AM

Who drinks their coffee black?
 
I've done so since I first started drinking the stuff.
Now I'll say something truly heretical, and I may have to turn in my Canadian club membership card for saying it, but McDonalds serves better coffee than Timmy does.

Haha. I saw what you did with that double negative there.

Retro Grouch 03-10-13 10:04 AM

I drink my coffee black. I think that might be one of the things that makes me a retro grouch.

Cream and (artificial) sweetener always. Unless not possible-->Black is better than no coffee.
No Timmy's near here but agree that McD's coffee is very tolerable in recent years.
