    Please explain, at great length, until you bore me.

    You're asking on tbot? You're just asking for bias. I call shenanigans on your statistically invalid inquiry.

    edit: Whoa! I can vote for all of them! Im gonna, because TB is amazing. Except for the pedals forum. None of that for me, thanks.

    I haven't been to another in months, so OT. My basses are fairly neglected.

    I predict this thread will end in a way unexpected by the OP.

    It may or may not be boring, but it will be short.




    Unless, it's long. In which case, it will most definitely not be boring. Except for some of it. The tedious bits.

    I like OT. You never know what topic will interest you.
    Bassists are funny, strange, diverse and sometimes off the wall.
    TBOT is where you get it all.

    I didn't vote for OT. That would be too predictable. Besides, Luthier's Corner is amazing!

    I voted strings.

    I saw orange strings once and they reminded me of carrots...

    You said you wanted us to bore you so I voted for OT. Where else can you read detective stories, talk about nonsense, argue about flu shots and hear Makki's opinion. TBOT is a non/political, religious,non-religious, goofy, intellectual (HA!) somewhat coherent experiment in coloring out side of the lines. Please save the black crayon for me. The only thing the will get you tarred and feathered around here is starting a rage quit thread. And boy we love that. We got Mugwumps, high jumps, low slumps, big bumps. If Matti can't make it Titus won't it fake and Munjii will have the last say. Bassybill will expound slobake will goof around and Relic will be found eatin' pork rolls by the pound. Immigrant is Unrepresented we don't know where he's headed and Eric Perry wants to know what they said. Bwanna plays his Ric and Major plays his metal. Two Fingers can't be found, no one's seem him around. Pilgrim sets us all straight someone wants to debate and LowEnd say he's gonna be late. Derhoggz is in the back seat Mike N's cars can't be beat and Kwesi doesn't have one at all. slobake has to worry, he did this in a hurry and wants to mention everyone here.
    Hi jinks big pinks, skating rinks, rich dinks, rat finks, dirty sinks, we're off when the big light blinks. Back in the alley they'e countin' up the talley, basses sounding growly, cheese and biscuits back by the door. HbarCat got healthy, but no one's gettin' wealthy, someone stole the quote by the Chief.

    It will be OT when the story with the armadillo in the Carmen Miranda hat gets posted. Until then, I will have to go with OT. Thank you and good night.

    Seeing as to how I've only really strayed from OT once in months, (looking to upgrade the electronics in my Ibby SR406) my vote has to go to OT. I honestly forget that this is even supposed to be a bass forum.

    For this to be valid you would have to post the survey on all subforums and compile the data. So get right on it. :)

    Tough call actually. Still pondering.

    I voted amps.
    There is every bit as much bickering, snarkyness, hate and decent there as there is in OT with out getting into politics or religion or sex.

    You can imagine how much more interesting those threads would get if people were turning over their Ampeg to see if it was circumcised or trying to determine ideal port diameter for most satisfying friction levels.:|
