Talk Bass, five years from now. A vision

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by MicceO, Oct 7, 2004.

    There will be:

    :( a huge search button

    (as no newbie questions are allowed. everything is done to death by the oldies and everyone violating this unwritten norm will know his/her place very quickly)

    :( a medium size OT button and OT forum where fart humour florishes

    :( a tiny lounge button and a lounge where a small group of bassists run their high level discussions that newbies have not the least possibilities to participate in

    Hopefully not! But it would be interesting to know if there are different visions. :eyebrow:

    If you'd ever had the opportunity to read the Lounge, you'd probably find it totally disinterting.

    Well apart from the free gold bars for all lounge members thread, yeah, i liked that one. :ninja:
  4. Especially if you´re not American, since most threads there seem to revolve around US politics.

    But anyways, I´m sure Behringer threads will be plentiful even five years from now. :bag:

    A special mouse will be needed to login and browse, one that sends 9v electric shocks. Threadstarter gets it when a thread is similarly repeated, Nickthebassist everytime he logs in.

    There will be no need for an "Ask The Pro" section as everybody will already know EVERYTHING! ... wait a minute, that's the way it is NOW! :D

    Well, maybe that's because most members are from the US... (no, not me).

    That was a good thread. I needed the doorstops.

    the US bashing will eventually bore the ignorant and they will move on to something more interesting.
  10. Yes, I sort of knew that, just observing ;) . Personally I don´t much care about any politics, Finnish or American or whatever.

    I hope Blissheads mention of "US Bashing" wasn´t referring to my post. I have nothing against USA or any other country (well, maybe Sweden :p ). As I said, I´m just not very interested in discussing politics. I´m sure nobody here isn´t interested in Finnish politics either...
  11. That's cause we all think you are too close to Russia. Just how friendly ARE you with the Ruskies?

    oh, and more supporting member perks, like say, live nude webcams............

  15. It almost was. It had the "Opening site" message, which kinda got my attention. Then it just said Domain for Sale.

    It might bore the ignorant, but what about the Australians?

    Oh wait...

    We figure we can get away with it given the chance that any given American could find Australia on a map, and thus attack us, is pretty low :D

    I said ignorant not criminal... ;)

    CoolHat, if I was poking at you I would have quoted you, I was just joking around in general.

    I was in a group doing a project in eigth grade, and my partner, who wasn't the brightest buld in the box, thought Australia was a U.S. state.
