    Lol, we are getting very internal with the humor now. Next would be "Why would anyone start a thread and not make fun of other threads in the title?"

  9. I'd posit 'WHY is TB suddenly ate up with WHY would . . . . . . threads' ?

    I asked myself why and man oh man is it circular and redundant. I think in fairness, we need more WHAT, WHO, and WHERE threads to balance this out, we're listing to starboard . . . . .

    Agree. I prefer the WHAT, WHEN, WHO and especially HOW threads for superior signal to noise ratios. :thumbsup:

  13. Finally a question worth exploring in a completely superficial manner to arrive at a foregone conclusion!

    No argument here. It's definitely the easiest of the cool instruments.

    which begs the question: Which are the uncool instruments? (besides keyboards with a keytar)

    The uncool instrument are the triangle, the accordion, and the oboe. Tambourine and cowbell could also be considered uncool, but it depends on the player.
