Foo Patterns

Having to sit on my butt all day because of my back, I've noticed posting patterns that I'd like to share with all the foosters. (Keep in mind, this is Mountain time)

8:00 am to 10 or 10:30 am is really heavy posting time. around 10:30 am, things nearly quit completely. Around 2 pm, things start to pick up. Not as much as the morning rush, but it does ok. Around 3:30, things die off again until around 8 or so. After 8, sporadic posting occurs. About 9, it quits. Then, around 11 pm, things start rockin' again. This happens until 1 am.

That is all

You know everything is not an anecdote. You have to discriminate. You choose things that are funny or mildly amusing or interesting. You're a miracle! Your stories have NONE of that. They're not even amusing ACCIDENTALLY! "Honey, I'd like you to meet UnsafeAlpine, he's got some amusing anecodotes for you. Oh and here's a gun so you can blow your brains out. You'll thank me for it." I could tolerate any insurance seminar. For days I could sit there and listen to them go on and on with a big smile on my face. They'd say, "How can you stand it?" I'd say, "'Cause I've been with UnsafeAlpine. I can take ANYTHING." You know what they'd say? They'd say, "I know what you mean. The non girlfriend havin’ bikeforums foo quy. Woah." It's like going on a date with a Chatty Cathy doll. I expect you have a little string on your chest, you know, that I pull out and have to snap back. Except I wouldn't pull it out and snap it back - you would. Agh! Agh! Agh! Agh! And by the way, you know, when you're telling these little stories? Here's a good idea - have a POINT. It makes it SO much more interesting for the read!

Based on that little rant, I'm guessing UA turned you down again.
