I agree.. I remember being on the fan tail of the air craft carrier ..waiting ...taking a breather waiting for the next flight ops. I would play songs in my head ..and watch the boats prop wash as we ziged zaged in the Gulf of Tonkin. I wondered what was going on back home ..I thought about my dog ..Sruff.

I miss that dog.

No, we're supposed to be snooty.
You know the thing, holding a newspaper tablet with ATS loaded, in a big chair with a cigar and a glass of wine, snickering to ourselves quietly.



Sorry OP, I don't think anyone cares to post to your discretion. If it's a problem, the mods will have been notified and taken care of it. Nevertheless, I do my best to stay within the confines of the T&C.

I'm not trying to be rude, just calling it how I see it.

This used to be a "Conspiracy Forum". Now, you can get a recipe for raspberry pie, fix a Subaru starter, build a lien-to for survival, learn how to download classic comics, books, videos etc.

We get love and relationship and medical and ethical advice, religious, legal and political advice. We can reboot our computers, program our phones, choose an insurance company. We can post our artwork, pictures, videos, music, poems, short stories...you name it.

"Conspiracy" issues as once intended to be serious? No....But you CAN find out how to rid your bed of bedbugs while baking that raspberry pie....

This is how it has morphed to now...along with the sarcastic humor...

Damn it... I closed my blinds earlier. And don't call it a tablet. It's an iPad. BIG DIFFERENCE. Tablets are what the poor people have.

When there is a serious discussion about a topic I tend to go serious.

But what's a guy supposed to do when a member says "I was at lunch the other day with my cousin T-Bone and realized I had stumbled into a CIA restaurant front when I found a Reptilian eyeball in my soup." And he is serious!! Then Beezer says "did it see you first or vica versa?" With a chime in by Kangaruex4Ewe saying "I hate it when that happens it makes the broth too sweet" Then along comes Destinyone and says "You can buy those at the grocery store now in a 6 pack for $2.50" and now I make a special bar of soap called the peeping tom."

It just makes the whole I can't deal with the world anymore go away. It brightens my day, keeps me from being a yet bigger buttface.

I read your post. This thread is up to five or more pages now. I am not going to take the time to comb through all replies to state the obvious...if you can't either ignore a humorous post about a serious topic, than maybe you should seek another forum. I will start a post with a little levity due to the subject matter being so inflammatory in order to put things in perspective. We are only in these mortal bodies for so long, enjoy it. Don't take things so seriously. Relax. It's just an internet forum, not the map to doomsday.

My apologies of course MarlinGrace. I never intended to be so uncouth, but I do hate sweet broth... and ants on a log, but for totally different reasons.

I think Des's peeping tom soap is a more egregious faux pas though. WTH? Did she not even think for a moment at the repercussions of dropping that particular soap? I think not.

Nightmares for months.

And it brightens my day as well. I don't know much more that I enjoy better than a good laugh.

Humour is a good way to disagree in a contentious and emotional debate without causing offence. Until the internet develops a sarcasm-font, humour will have to suffice as a way to stop flame wars - sometimes.

Laughter is the best medicine.


I don't understand what with all these rants on how other ATS members behave. Who cares . Is it really that important?
It isn't.


If you can't take the heat then get out of the kitchen.

Couldn't agree more. I only disagree with the negative aspect of humor.

You put that well. Shine on Sir.

Why agree with derailment, and ill-mannered humor to make others feel bad?

As I've stated many times in this thread... I love good humor and many other types of it. F.ex. jokes that makes one change his mind due to looking into ones own chest/head.

Have care for you FlyersFan and enjoy many of your responses.

THAT wasn't stated in your opening post. That's different.
I'd agree with you that using ill manner humor to make people feel bad isn't cool.

The opening post said things about 'too much unintelligent attempts at humor'.
That's kinda subjective. What is funny to some, isn't to others.
And lots of folks use humor to get a point across.
Those were the reasons I disagreed with you about 'too much humor'.

If you had said that ill-mannered humor makes other feel bad, then I'd agree.
Have a nice Sunday ....
