What's Wrong with Going Off Topic?
I figure this is the forum to post this in, so here it is: why do people get so bent out of shape over a thread going off topic? If it's getting silly, or ridiculous, then yes, I agree - get back to the point. However, I've seen it countless times, and it always pisses me off when someone gets their noses out of joint over a tangential conversation. This is how we learn a lot of new information, techniques, etc and it's just the natural flow of communicating with others. I'm the kind of guy who can sit in a coffee shop, or on a patio for hours, talking with the same person, and you know what? I like it!
Maybe next time a thread goes askew we should all just stop replying at all, and kill the thread.
Speaking of thread, I often find myself marveling at Nike's Dry-Fit material, because it feels incredibly soft and tightly knit. I've wondered if it might be a very fine, yet high thread count, unlike Adidas' which seems to hurt my nipples when I run. Actually, a funny thing happened the other day, when I was running. I really had to burp for about the first kilometre (.6 miles), but the burp wouldn't come up. FINALLY, I let out a huge belch and I swear, I felt 10 pounds lighter. Anyway, the weirdest part is, it kinda tasted like vanilla ice cream, but I hadn't had any ice cream in over a week! This got me thinking, "is it still ice cream if it's melted, or is it now just vanilla flavored milk"?
