    The case for foo

    Given the apparent tendency of at least 35% of 'non-foo' threads to be utterly pointless and silly (topics like 'I hooked my helmet mirror on a parking meter today'), I'd say that any thread that is entertaining to all the bike weenies here is arguably far more essential.

    Cast your vote.

    You can comment too. The more pointless posts here, the more fulfilling for all of us.

    So wait, any non-foo thread that is entertaining is more essential than non-foo threads that are pointless and silly? You smokin something Patent Boy? I hope your claim language is more clear.

    Patent attorneys write claim language. Pcad only does the drawings.

    But no, their claim language is NOT particularly clear. A vague and broadly worded patent provides a much wider platform for future litigation. What a country.

    Interesting.

    Ladies of Foo = Best Thread Ever! Watching Jon trash his Gaint is mildly entertaining as well- Makes me feel a lot better about myself.

    Wait, that wasn't pointless enough for this thread was it?

    I had hoped that this thread might be the genesis of a pro-foo MOVEMENT.

    By the way, for all those who voted that 'foo has no place on BF':

    your very presence here does earmark you as human foo.

    Embrace your fooishness.

    Interesting line of work! What program are you using? I've been on various versions of good old 2D AutoCAD for about 6 years now.

    PS: I can't believe this hasn't been moved to Foo yet.

    We use Adobe Illustrator, Mac platform, since 1991. I have long believed that using Autocad for patent drawings would be like employing a brain surgeon to remove a splinter. Perhaps Dr. Pete could comment on that last scenario since he is a federal employee.

    And of course, the true Zen Master TV show of all, Kung Foo:



    Why do I know with total certainty that those who vote 'Foo has no place on BF' are the members who post the 'I keep tipping over in these damn clipless pedals' threads?

    Yeah, you non-Foo folks just don't know what you're missing.

    Put it this way. Foo has more place on this bikeforum, than road does.

    What does that say about the quality of the road forum?

    Gooday good sir.
