Life and death of a thread
 
I may have missed a step or two here, but this is what it might seem like. Maybe this could be a sticky so newbies to the forum can set expectations. 😃 Sharing so we might have a laugh at ourselves (we've all been one of these responses at one time or another so no offense intended!).

Life and death of a thread

OP: asks for opinion on best (thing)

#1: welcoming response. Warning of opinions to come. Encouraging salutation.

#2: welcoming response. Sharing of strongly held opinion. Encouraging salutation. Happy emoticon.

#3: sharing of strongly held opinion.

#4: sharing of strongly held opinion.

#5: sharing of strongly held opinion. Challenge of #3's opinion. Insertion of "brows" emoticon.

#6: sharing of strongly held opinion. Encourage trip to Canada.

#7: offer empirical evidence against Canadian solution.

#8: warn of legal liability for going against strongly held onion. Relate anecdote from authoritative friend/relative.

#9: request official citation for claim in #8.

#10: hurl insult at #9.

#11: blame China.

Ha! That's a scream! I love "brows", BTW. Try a specific example to better illustrate the point. How about axles or tires? :brows:

HaHa and Luv it,
I agree in so many ways, and waiting for those whose toes are stepped on to chime in! Just like to watch. U know! Oops, wife said I should not have said that. Sorry. I hope it does not "kill the thread."

Optional:

Blame EPA, IRS, CIA, IGA, CYA, Democrats, Republicans, Martians, for the fact that you cannot buy a 100% American Made tow vehicle that produces 800# of torque and gets 40 miles per gallon while emitting nothing more noxious than a butterfly fart.

That's just plain funny. But pretty darn true.

You can't tow with that!

BoldAdventure 11-03-2015 06:08 PM

I strongly disagree.

Perfect ...

In my experience, "Encourage trip to Canada" and "hurl insult" come earlier, probably both before #5. Very accurate otherwise :)

So where does the inflammatory mention of firearms for defense on the road come in?

CBWELL 11-03-2015 06:52 PM

Is somebody "picking" on Canada again? We just got a new Prime Minister!!!:lol::lol::lol:

One or two posts after the opinion that anyone who is towing their Airstream with anything smaller than a Peterbilt is a menace to society.

Thanks for laugh SteveSueMac!

I'd add: sarcastic comment regarding laws of physics being different in Canada
