Ok, maybe the question is too narrow. I don’t necessarily have to know the exact thread that caught your attention, but just a concept or idea that’s demonstrated here that you haven’t found anywhere else.
In the thread I mentioned above, it just made me feel a whole hell of a lot better about some of the truly assinine things I have done. It made me feel like I share the planet with similar life forms, instead of being the only one of my particular ilk.
A friend of mine emailed a hysterical story titled The Horror of Blimps and after some searching for the source of such a funny story, I was led here. I read some more stories by Scylla, Master Wang-Ka and others, and I decided this was worth $14.95 a year.
It seems to be off in archive-land now, but when I saw the incredibly inane level of nitpicky detail displayed in the Comments on Mailbag Answers thread “Galileo, a hammer, and a feather”, I knew I had found my home.
Master Wang-Ka’s thread about Christmas in a classroom at a school he worked at. I’ve never been able to find it. Could someone kindly provide a link? It had me and all of my friends (who never ended up subscribing) in stitches.
I had been around the front page for a while, linked from ehowa or fark or something. The first thread to really catch my eye, though, was Scylla’s story about his Irish wolfhound. Sadly, I’m not able to find a link to it… probably just as well, I’d just end up crying again.
