Do threads having nothing to do with mountains and/or outdoor activity add to the .COM experience?

4) Yes. I like how worldly I feel when I learn about all the things to do outside away from my mom's basement and my puter.

5) NO! I am very narrow-minded and self-centered and don't want any gibberish about cosmetology school being a good career path getting in the way of talking over the difference between C2 and C2+ routes.

6) No. I want to only talk about those things related to mountaineering that 98.9% of the people on this site don't want to learn.

In actuality, I was laughing at all of us including me; I fit into several options. :lol:

We all take this just a tad too serious at times. Big group of Type A variables on the .com, it seems. Some more balanced than others. And the occasional mayhem is a part of the allure, for me at least.

Imho Dummy is OK, second (eponymous) album is getting there, but Third is the rapture. It is DF Wallace of 21st century albums, it is meta as f**k, it will lull you into thinking that you understand what it is about, just to dismantle you into oblivion on the next listening.
Third is classic
