The hall of fame that's located in Atlanta, Germany? I think it's only fitting.

This thread is the enemy of common sense.




Hey, someone had to say it.

I'm glad Screwup defined the "cycle of art" for us all.

He is also responsible for the "cycle of Screw", as it turns out:

1 - Screwtape makes an insane assertion, based on 20 years of living at home, walking the fine line between looking at a girl and the penetrating glare of a psycho and reading a lot of Wilde, Keats and Pretentious Artist Digest (which IS art).

2 - Many people older, smarter, more open minded and wiser than Screwtape patiently explain why his point of view could be a bit flawed. These are, typically, rational arguments and a possible entryway into a nice give and take.

3 - Screwtape then digs in, and patiently explains why everyone is wrong, attempting the quickly end the debate he engineered in the first place.

4 - Patience thins, and Screwtape is, rightfully, scolded for being not at all open minded or capable of mature, intelligent discourse.

5 - Screwtape deigns to explain to everyone else that not only are they wrong, but that they could never understand Screw's perfectly correct point of view nor will they ever understand anything beyond their base knowledge of the world. Again, Screw is 20.

6 - The posts to Screwtape exclusively become personal jibes, most of which ring true. Patience has evaporated and exasperation sets in. Also, the comedic flair of some members comes to the forefront, which places Screw at a great disadvantage, as it's hard to be a myopic, stubborn twit but still have time to cultivate a legit sense of humor.

7. Screwtape, sensing that things are getting out of hand and a tad immature, decides to be the bigger man, by exclaiming something akin to "I am picking up my toys and leaving the sand box. So there!". Screw leaves in a huff, but, he always comes back...eventually.

8. Thread carries on without Screw, as aftershocks are felt and newcomers to the thread get to discover the wonders within. These threads are the gifts that keep on giving.

9. Everyone repairs to San Remo, Atlanta, Germany, for refreshments.

Meanwhile, the never-ending song chain keeps chugging along like a furious runaway train.

That one doesn't flabbergast me so much, and sometimes I even like popping in there for a song or two (waits for stoning). The one that flabbergasts me is the U2 song title chain. How many threads have we had on it? You know, there's only a finite number of U2 songs. So it's a never-ending chain of someone rattling off the same xx number of U2 songs in existence.

Over and over and over and over again.

WHAT ARE YOU EATING FOR BREAKFAST?... THE THREAD!

WHAT'S THE WEATHER LIKE OUTSIDE?... THE THREAD!

THE ____ NAME GAME... THE THREAD!

Those are the low points of human existence for me.

Well, it could be worse. They could be having those threads on a Nickelback fan forum.
