    Birr is my wife's home town, where they are rightly proud of the Rosse Telescope which was the largest in the world when it was built. In Space Truckers we see how Birr is to become part of the Lofar Telescope spanning western europe.

    I don't bother to open any thread which has "hate" or "dislike" in the title, nor do I bother with threads which already have more than about 50 responses. If I enjoyed a thread I will keep going back no matter how epic it becomes, but by the time a thread has 50 responses someone has probably already put forward my point of view, there are enough shorter ones to spend my time on.

    Rule #1: Skip the threads that don’t interest you and go to the ones that do. Rule #2: See Rule# 1...

    With people coming and going, attrition may take it's toll. That reflects on content for sure.
    We lose a member like threeplyguy a few years ago, he was always good for smarter threads. I notice at times, I do not see anything I want to comment on. Then a few days later, I am posting in multiple threads.

    The Hubble and quantum physics? That's science... apparently a controversial topic. :(

    'Calamity Jane' is an incredible movie. DD is also incredibly prolific; seems she recorded around 1,000 songs? I don't have the exact data. :cool:

    But she did a lot in the short time she was active. And her son's life is equally as interesting.

    I know exactly what you mean. I've been posting less here lately and hardly start threads anymore but I've actually started 2 out 3 threads with subjects very close to your list.

    I also once started a thread about "Your Favorite Female Actress." I can't find it maybe it was removed due to some one getting a little loose with pictures. ;)

    My favorite actress is Alexandra Daddario just to give it an update. She acts good and she looks amazing.

    Controversial? I think you mean wrong. Like when it contradicts what I believe to be true.

    I'm not sure that a whole lot of detailed analysis is what we need.

    This place is best when it is spontaneous and just an escape from all the stressful "stuff" going on out there in the "Bigger World".


    I like pie.

    Controversial? Only when it becomes a religion.

    How much has the membership gone up or is that top secret?

    I agree that threads that are 6 pages long don't interest me as far as reading them or even contributing to them. It's basically 6 pages of variations on the same thing with half the responses trying to be funny but aren't.

    The thing that killed the glory days Bad Dog was when they stopped allowing threads about music in here... and pushed all of that talk to other forums. The Bad Dog was only created because “sum peepholes” (ahem) didn’t want any talk going on in the forum if it was explicitly about a Telecaster. So music threads were considered “off topic” and pushed to the Bad Dog. Now it seems that anything that becomes popular enough gets its own forum. Statistically speaking, the “I’m I the only one who...” threads should probably have their own forum by now.

    There are only so many words you say about two nicely made bits of wood screwed together invented by a man who didnt play guitar and sold his company to a cold calculating and misinformed music giant .So roll on Doris Day.......

    Are we talking about Bad Dog or TDPRI as a whole? With regard to TDPRI as a whole, my sense is that there's a bit less overall GAS aiding and abetting involved. People are much more quick to advise that folks
    work on their chops, that any decent dirt pedal will get the job done, etc. It seems there used to be a much more whole-hearted chorus supporting constant gear upgrades. But maybe that's just me....
    my GAS has been reduced dramatically and so maybe I don't really notice the GAS aiding and abetting chorus as much as I used to....

    I though those threads started with "AM I the only one . . . . ?"

    I've often wondered how many 'dog threads' are in the Bad Dog Café?

    Change is the only thing that permanent.
