Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. I know that I’m supposed to be reverent about the high-minded purpose of the Straight Dope Message Board. I mean hey, they’re fighting ignorance and all. But I confess. I have a dark secret.
The truth about my frequent visits is that most of the time, I come here seeking (gasp) entertainment!
I chuckle at some pit rants. I smile at some MPSIMS posts. I’ve giggled at some IMHO topics. Heck, every once in a while I even find amusement in GD and GQ.
Sorry to disappoint the serious ignorance fighters. Flog me with a Maters thesis. I deserve it.
Yep, I learn sometimes. Learning is a good thing. But I can’t help but want to be entertained and most of the time, the good old SDMB doesn’t let me down.
Now…who will join me out of the closet? Who here has the guts to admit that they’d rather open a Wildest Bill post to be entertained than to open another Collunsbury thread about the scientific nuances of race?
