RJForum's ability to stay on topic

    is entertaining. I participate in several other online forums, most of which are either mod-forcedly on topic 100% of the time (after the mods see the threads/posts) or else on-topic for the first 10 posts at best, and after that devolve to a totally unrelated (and not always sexual, despite most of the members being straight males) discussion.

    RealJock seems to be somewhere in between. Most of the responses in a thread seem to be on-topic; the only large number of exceptions is when two or more members digress to hit on one another/hit on-ignore one another.

    It can't just be because we're gay, because some of the other sites I've been to have been gay too, and they fell into one of the two above categories.

    So why is RealJock like this?

    NOTE: ALTHOUGH IRONY IS APPRECIATED, I WOULD PREFER THIS THREAD NOT TURN INTO A JUST-HIT-ON-EVERYONE-ELSE-IN-IT-TO-BE-IRONIC TYPE THING

    Ewww. Skittles are gross. M&Ms are so much better. Especially peanut.

    Peanuts are nuts. Can't you guys stay on topic? Let's get back to discussing threads. I like the ones that are not nylon.

    did you see this month's nylon magazine with that talentless cow rachel bislon on the cover? what were they thinking.

    honestly, i appreciate the occasional veering off topic in the threads, it makes for some entertaining reading. i think it's only natural, given the incredible wealth of creative and talented people on this site.

    I have been waiting for this............

    An alcoholic English gentleman receives a threat from his wife, who tells him "if you stumble home drunk one more time I shall divorce you".

    Lord Thistlebottom is on the straight-and-narrow for about 14 hours until he finds himself in the bar of his favorite gentlemen's club on Pall Mall. Needless to say he is three-sheets-to-the-wind in a force 4 gale.

    The rapidly deteriorating circumstances reach their seeming Nader (spelling intentional) when Thistlebottom throws up sick down the front of his Henry Poole dinner suit.

    Tears rolling down his cheeks he confesses to his friend Sir Thurbert Bugler that "ifff I come home like this my wife will divorce me".

    Sir Thurbert advises, "but this is no problem, just put a 20 pound note in your inside jacket pocket. When your wife asks you what happened show her the note and explain that someone threw up sick all over you but was kind enough to offer to cover the costs of dry cleaning".

    Lord Thistlebottom stumbles home consoled.

    On seeing him his wife immediately starts in and he interrupts "no, no, no someone threw up sick all over me and he gave me 20 pounds to cover the dry cleaning" and he pulls the note out of his inner jacket pocket.

    The wife stares at this in bewilderment and asks "if that is true then why do you have two twenty pound notes in your hand".

    Thistlebottom gamely replies, "Oh the other one is from the man who shat in my pants".

    It's disgusting to mix different colors of skittles in one mouthful.

    No. icon_surprised.gif In Massachusettes, to a man. One of the first divorces in CT (where we'd also had a civil union.)

    No skittles were involved.
