Worked in the e9x. Sides, I have it on good authority this will be the magic one :) Either that or this sub-forum will feel the wrath of my OTness ;)

drivinfaster 06-09-2013 07:11 PM

now play nice boys.....:angel:

i just kinda dig it because it's a cool idea and is catching on (finally....)


i hope that you guys enjoy your ot thread as much as we do ours. it's a meandering adventure for sure, and was a heck of a lot more fun than the ot forum in general. (at least *i* like to think so....)

so, i'll do my best to keep these rascals in their cage, since it was *i* who posted a link to this thread (i thought it was cool to see you guys doing it as well :thumbup:), but if you've ever had teens you know how rammy they can be at times...:tsk:

anyway, hope yours works out for ya!!

Oh God, no.

The E9X has an OT thread because the entire forum became overrun by 17 year olds and their used E90's. It was the only place for anyone over the age of 30 to go to try and have some normal conversation. And then it went downhill. And then the 50 year olds started talking like the 17 year olds. And then the cliques started.

Delete this thread. We don't need it. There is enough good conversation here because the forum is filled with new-car-buying adults. You don't even own an F30 for christsakes, stop trying to take over the forum. It's great the way it is, thanks.

I know what comes with the OT thread and I am trying to save the forum from it, trust me on this one. There's a perfectly good OT thread in the E9X forum, let it carry on its silliness and cliquishness over there. We don't need an E90 M3 owner with a goat fetish over here, trust me.

BJ

drivinfaster 06-09-2013 08:17 PM

what's wrong with goats?? :dunno:

i've raised other farm animals as well, btw....


as for immature/mature content and whatnot, that happens in almost every forum, on every board i frequent. bimmerfest just seems to be doing a much better job with regard to keeping people on the polite side of things.

well, almost. :eeps: kinda ignore poly sci.....:tsk:

regardless, though, the e36 forum probably has a hugh number of young bmw owners as well and we seem to have a pretty good handle on the topics and such. seldom does anything get out of control in our 'clique'. if it does, we have several regulars who have noob and ban hammers that are not afraid to use them.

just ask temmoc and headtwista. they'll remember us....;)



i'm not saying that there aren't going to be rowdy ones around, but i believe they'd be rowdy on *any* online forum, not just an e vs f chassis or the like.

besides, if you do not wish to participate in an ot thread, the beauty is that you *don't* have to. :dunno:

just because i am not very fond of sweets doesn't mean that mrs df is not allowed to partake.

so you may wish to vote the thread down, but it will just pop up under another one if it gets shut down (pssst, guys, if you put 'super stealthy' in front of the title, the mods won't be able to see it.....worked for the tacos....even jon wasn't aware we had them until he saw them....:angel::D).



so i vote yay for ot threads. :thumbup:

Why aren’t we feeling superior to everyone today:rolleyes:. Just because you can afford a new BMW does not make you any more mature than the people who buy cheaper cars. Also, as DF stated before you are not required to ever look in this thread. If you do not want to participate in OT you can choose not to it will have no impact on the rest of the threads in the subform.

On a side note I have a hard time taking someone who signs his posts “BJ” seriously. I literally laughed out loud when I saw that:rofl:.

drivinfaster 06-09-2013 09:15 PM

well, i believe that this is probably *the* most ot thread *EVER*....because there seems to be an awful lot of non-f30 owners (myself included) in here.

see what happens when someone leaves the door open and the neighborhood pranksters put up a sign that says 'free beer inside' on the window??:p


seriously tho, i hope this takes off and becomes a popular thread. perhaps we'll even meat some of you guys @ bf east?? i look *exactly* like my avatar, so i'll be easy to spot. :D

come on over and chat!!:thumbup:

I am creating the OT thread for BJs benefit. That will keep the rabble rousers locked to one place. Currently, since there is no home for OT threads they can pop up whenever. Now they will be relegated to the Zoo cage

Where have I seen this before...

This thread needs more cat facts.

Some cats have survived falls of over 65 feet (20 meters), due largely to their “righting reflex.” The eyes and balance organs in the inner ear tell it where it is in space so the cat can land on its feet. Even cats without a tail have this ability.

A cat rubs against people not only to be affectionate but also to mark out its territory with scent glands around its face. The tail area and paws also carry the cat’s scent.

Researchers are unsure exactly how a cat purrs. Most veterinarians believe that a cat purrs by vibrating vocal folds deep in the throat. To do this, a muscle in the larynx opens and closes the air passage about 25 times per second.

When a family cat died in ancient Egypt, family members would mourn by shaving off their eyebrows. They also held elaborate funerals during which they drank wine and beat their breasts. The cat was embalmed with a sculpted wooden mask and the tiny mummy was placed in the family tomb or in a pet cemetery with tiny mummies of mice.

Sorry, this thread does not support cats. On the other hand it does support goats!
