    The title says it all. What do you think TB?? There are some dumbass threads around these parts quite frequently, but there are several that pop up from time to time that exceed all stupid thread expectations. (Yeah, I do realize this is probably one of them.)


    So let's vote on the stupidity!!

    Damit! I can't add anymore topics to the poll, but that is certainly a valid point!
     
  6. Where is the one for those power cables that made your amp sound better :p

    By far, cover bands vs original bands.

    I've never seen something so stupidly polarizing in all my life!
    I'm getting annoyed just thinking about it.... I visited that thread a few times and just when it looked like people were starting to open up, some moron would come in, make some asinine blanket statement and ignite it all over again, and again...and again...and again.

    anything racial is also annoying..

    then a quick opinion on the last 3:
    Mark Wilson IS fail, there should be no "vs"
    John Turner banned Chuck Norris, that one's been answered already
    Carrots came first, ergo, carrots wins

    You'd need to have been around since 2000 to possibly know what some of the dumbest debates were. I'd imagine most of them were in the now defunct tin pan alley and I am sure I was involved in a fair share of them (probably on the side of dumb as well!)! :D
     
  9. I have: The debate over what constitutes a "tribute band" vs a "cover band".

    Hard headedness to the extreme.

    I would say in terms of sheer ignorance, any thread involving an "audiophile" product like power cables, fuses, wooden knobs, is likely to contain the highest amount of dumb statements per thread. That or any thread in OT!
     
  11. Bass vs bass guitar
     
  12. I went with the monster cable option. It's a cable, for goodness sake, and yet people get so riled up over it.

    I also voted for the monster cable debate due to the sheer amount of ignorance that gets passed off as science in those threads.

    Overpowering vs. Underpowering speakers should also be an option.

    Maple vs Rosewood, and "Is tonewood real?" belong in that poll.

    I forgot to add a few subjects like ERB vs B.

    I had to add a few epic topics as well, or this poll might not have turned out to be so stupid!
     
  16. Expensive vs cheap bass/amp/hookers/etc

    I'd say Mark Wilson Vs. Fail is probably one of the more intelligent debates going on in OT.

    SO I voted for Carrots Vs. Bacon.

    Carrots is a TB thing started by JT.

    Bacon is an entire internet thing.
     
  19. MAPLE VS. ROSEWOOD
