    Default Random Banter #117

    Welcome To Random Banter
    We hope you enjoy your stay.

    We still might kill you, though.

    This thread does exactly what it says on the tin. Only it's not in a tin. RB is a place to talk about... anything you feel like. Anything (As the title suggests) random, that you don't feel is significant enough to merit it's own thread. Though some topics seem to come up more frequently than others (e.g. Maths and Shakespeare)

    New people should not be scared, we're all very nice really. Well, except for that guy over there, but never mind him. Feel free to jump in. I did, and see, now I have the transient and entirely worthless pleasure of making the new thread myself.

    I'm afraid there are a few rules, put in place to keep these threads from getting out of hand.

    Rules
    Spoiler
    Show

    1. Spam. For the purposes of RB, one word posts are generally considered spam. Likewise, posts that are nothing but *actions like this* are also be considered spam. Remember that the quality of the post's content is much better than the speed of your response.

    2. This isn't the Play by Post or Town forum, nor is it the Silly Message Board Games or Structured Games forum. Please avoid continuous roleplay or mock battles and fights such as the "competition for control of the universe".

    3. If it's already a thread, don't bring it to RB. RB has such a huge range of subject matter even restricted to the little snippets that probably don't warrant their own thread, it doesn't need legitimate thread topics cluttering it up as well. The exception to this is to bring something that is off-topic from one thread, but on-topic for RB and the subject doesn't warrant a thread of its own.

    4. Don't advertise other threads in RB. Just because these new threads move at speeds more appropriate to a message board than an IM session doesn't mean you need to come over to RB and brow beat people into posting in your latest brainchild.

    5. Please don't post single line posts alerting us to your current status -- as in "I'm back." This is Random Banter, not "How to stalk Random GitP forum members."

    6. Don't poke, kick or bump the thread. It will move at whatever pace it wants to. Also, please refrain from Captain Obvious comments akin to "My, the thread is fast today."

    7. Random Banter can only be as good, or as entertaining, as you make it. Demands to be entertained will fall on deaf ears unless you can add something more meaningful to the conversation.

    8. As this is a public forum, where the current topic is nicely recorded for you, and not a conversation where you could have missed the beginning, please refrain from asking something to the effect of "What's the topic?". Please take the time to read up a bit first.

    9. Thread Creator must include the words "Random" and "Banter" as well as the thread #. Try to be concise as well.

    10. Every post should contain two visible, legible complete sentences, Subject and Predicate. C'mon, make your old English teachers proud.

    11. Remember, Random Banter is not your IM client. If you want to have a back and forth discussion with just one person, look in their contact information for IM details.

    12. Whenever a new thread is created, all "first post", "first page", and all posts of that nature will be deleted by the administrators. Please avoid doing this, as it is frustrating for them to deal with one-lined posts like this.

    13. Double-posting is not your friend. We have edit buttons for a reason.

    As stated above, this thread is for random discussion, not random chit chat. That is to say, this is a forum, not your IM client. People have set up an unofficial IRC chat thingy for that sort of thing. Not only will you not annoy the people here, you will also help increase the popularity of the IRC chat.

    And by natural law, I state that this thread belongs to the Collective, and thus should not be named alliteratively or after a poster. Also, boogies and blessings of any kind shall be frowned upon (though you're still gonna do it anyway, aren't you?).

    Scene 1, Take 117... Camera, lights... BANTER!
    I use black for sarcasm.


    Call me Rose, or The Rose Dragon. Rose Dragon is someone else entirely.

    If you need me for something, please PM me about it. I am having difficulty keeping track of all my obligations.

    Yay! Collective banter.

    If we can't boogie or bless, can we sing?
    Please, please, please, pretty please. Let's all sing together collectively.

    Yes, I too am used to the long titles. Although the reason behind this is sound and quite understandable.
    But yeah, we're still going to boogie like it's 1999.
    *Boogies like it's 1999*
    Also, singing would be good. What should we sing?

    I'll do the Blues Brothers, but the only song I can remember from that off the top of my head is "Theme from Rawhide". (We could sing it in honour of the mod.)

    I know "Everybody needs somebody". Although I've heard the Rawhide theme, I don't know the lyrics per se.

    For everyone's singing pleasure, lyrics to Rawhide Theme Song.

    Also, it's "per se", not "per say". Anyone who uses "per say" will be shot at dawn.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who habitually misspells a specific word. Mine is "terrific". I just did it wrong when I tried to write it there - I ALWAYS want to say "teriffic". WHY?!?!


    Edit: Freddyfoo asked if fizzy (carbonated) drinks had caffeine. Yes, many do (although you can buy decaffeinated varieties, they still have a small amount). But I don't like those, either.

    I'll just stick with Cola (Not Coca-Cola or Pepsi, just the normal stuff you can buy), Lemonade, Blackcurrant juice and Orange juice (Or Squash)

    Fredthefighter: I don't know about tears, but that line about ". . .I should never have said things like "If it weren't for you". Without you I'd just be another lonely guy taking his fifty bucks and blowing it all in one night. . ." was inspired. I'd expect someone to have dreamed and grieved themselves before being able to write that. Well done.

    The Rose Dragon: Thank you for the clean banter title. We did need a bit of alliteration detox.

    The saga of the screwdriver has ended. If anyone needs me, I'll be resetting the timing on my sewing machine--again.

    The saga of the screwdriver has ended. If anyone needs me, I'll be resetting the timing on my sewing machine--again.
    Thankyou, that means a lot coming from you. Alas, the only grieving I have done was for my Grandfather, who passed away in January. I was sad, but not "I must write something" sad. It was an "on-the-spot" task that took place in 5 to 10 minutes.
    I have another poem if you would like to hear it, although it is a bit more "sappy-romance-mush".

    I disagree. It's been over 100 threads of silly titles.

    I actually like the plain ol' RB title. Besides not having the same thing that caused Roland St. Jude's Banter a few back, everything fits in the Title bar.

    But, every Random Banter needs an alliterative title! Or at least a creative one.

    Just so you know, I really tried to make this post one big alliteration. I should get an A for effort.

    Not true. There have been several RBs with simply the name of the first poster and Random Banter #(insert number here). I simply took it one step further and removed the name part.

    The title does not a good Random Banter make. That's the job of the banter.
    I use black for sarcasm.


    Call me Rose, or The Rose Dragon. Rose Dragon is someone else entirely.

    If you need me for something, please PM me about it. I am having difficulty keeping track of all my obligations.

    Yes, but an interesting title promotes posting in the thread, it draws people in, whether they are new blood or long-time members.

    I don't know, I remember some pretty amazing Random Banters that followed the Name's Random Banter #Number formula for the title.

    I dunno, I quite like having a simple random banter name. A long name wouldn't really draw me into a thread, it'd make me think what is this madness, leave me alone.

    I'm not saying about content. I'm talking about face value, without exploring the thread.
    Example
    Random Forumite looks at the names of two threads, one is called "Random Banter (Insert random number)", the other is called "Amazingly Awesome and Totally Righteous Random Banter of the Gods". Which are they more likely to click on?
    Answer: The second one. Attracting new customers is all about image. I don't like using business terms here but I feel I have to.

    Sub-Zero, that is your opinion. Some people enjoy the madness of Random Banter.
