What do you get out of the Pit

Really, do you get anything out of posting in the BBQ pit? Ego boost? Catharsis?

How about reading posts in the Pit? It’s rarely clever.

What’s it to you? Do we go around asking what you get out of those goats you keep in the cellar? Huh? So sod off.

DrF, your post caused coffee to go up my nose. LOL :slight_smile:

This space for rent.

Bravo, Doc!

Dopeler effect:
The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.

Dear DrF. ,
Thanks a lot, I just spewed apple soda all over my desk, monitor, and my new shirt !

You sound reasonable. Must be time to up my medication.

Thank you for your prompt replies. While I didn’t expect example posts, they’re appreciated.

Actually, I get a big ego boost telling rude Texans with lame Hotmail accounts to fuck off.

“A big ego boost” from calling someone names? Your opinion of yourself benefits from name calling?

My dear, there are NO rude Texans ! The rest of ya’ll just don’t understand us ! So PPPPBBBBTTTTHHHHH !

What I want to know is: What in the name of all that is holy is a guy named “Mr. Thin Skin” doing in the Pit in the first place?

Modest? You bet I’m modest! I am the queen of modesty!

Looking for something to bitch about?

Just a wild guess !

Why am I here? Why “Mr Thin Skin?” I can answer that. I used to be here as someone else. Just like andros I made a knee-jerk post just for fun. I inadvertently offended many and decided to drop that screen name. I remarked to myself “Gosh what thin skins,” and hit upon that as my new name. I don’t troll except maybe Undead Dude on physics issues, but that’s just to get that clever guy (seriously), to post the SD. I have notice here, that many a post quits this board over misstatements here in this pit. Andros, my last screen name was based in St. Loius, Mo., since that’s where my last client was and I lived there for a year. I’m in Dallas now, but don’t assume I’m from here. You wouldn’t like me anyway, I’m a DBA/Developer, and have always had problems with sys admins :),

Strike that “Just like” and replace it with “In a manner somewhat analogous to, with respect to Texans,”

Dogs love cheese

You get out of the Pit by clicking on the main menu for the SDMB, or by clicking the little X in Internet Explorer.

Oh, you asked “What” not “How”…

Hey, no problem, Oh Thou of Inadequately-Dimensioned Epidermis. I just thought you were looking for flames. (Actually, I rather like Texas, and am only a system admin because it pays loads better than my former programming job. Programming . . . yeesh.)

In honest answer to your question, though, I post to the Pit to blow off steam, mostly. I don’t usually insult folks gratuitously, and I make a point of not taking anything said in the Pit seriously. Unfortunately, some people do.

There are people out there who immediately dislike others based on specious or prejudiced information. And I really fucking hate people like that.


Here in North carolina, they get BBQ out of a pit.

Contrary to popular belief, I do not reside in THE pit, though NC compared to NYC can certainly be Hellish…

Yer pal,

If ever a thread begged to be hijacked . . .

Thanks, Satan, I’m mind-numbingly hungry now. My SO is a Raleigh native, I lived in NC for several years. YOU CAN’T GET DECENT BARBECUE IN WASHINGTON STATE!!!

Any chance of getting you to mail me a big plate of pulled pork with some slaw and hushpuppies? I’ll pay whatever you want.


One of the favorite tactics of morons when confronted with facts is to whine about someone’s manners, or spelling, or sensitivity, or other silly pointless crap. The Pit is a bare knuckle, take that, and by the way, you are an idiot, on a good day style debate.

Take no prisoners, leave no enemies behind, burned earth, and Damn the Trollpedos!

I had a professor, long ago, who was accused of “cursing” in class by some anonymous weenie. Since the class was “Creative Communication,” the Prof’s response was to have a class on: “Cursing, Swearing, Oath Taking, Obscenity, Profanity, and Insult.” By the end of the hour, everyone knew that the Professor had not been cursing, but had been profane, and possibly insulting.

His final remark was: “Sometimes it really is a motherfucker, and you damned well ought to call it a motherfucker.” I still quote hie now and then.

Go ahead, correct my spelling. No, really.

They’re is nothing rong with you’re speling, Tris.
