A "new" classic. An internet-a-thon for those suffering from GTMS.
Tribdog, bless you for being the inspiration. :smile:

Evo, your support of our efforts here at the foundation for the Study of GTMS (Getting-Too-Much-Syndrome) is very much appreciated.

I guess you know just how hard it can be most of the time when you have this affliction. :smile:

We plan to stay on top of this until we can all come together for the benefit of those who are Getting-Too-Much.
:biggrin:

The Stupid Quetion thread went through several Golden Ages, notably one when Zooby, MiH and BoulderHead were holding the fort...I think in the 60s or 70s (page numbers).

When you realize that several prominent posters in the General Discussion forum actually changed their Avatars into nuns as a result of this thread, I feel this should definitely be added to the classics list. Also the great nun photos submitted by Ivan, the dancer submitted by polyb, etc. definitely classic stuff (check out page 25)

Here is a thread where PF members got into a rhyme off.

https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=55088

I have to add these two threads.

The first one started out innocently enough with a quiz to detect "Are you a nerd" Needless to say, it didn't take long before everyone turned into a pirate. :uhh: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=64484

This next one may be the thread to end all threads, except that we can't seem to end it. https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=63689

Then the thread was kidnapped by Nerd Pirates and Artman had to rescue the thread by coming up with a song. :approve:

A lot of people are new to PF and General Discussion. We have some very creative people here and I think some of the better threads deserve another look. I will be posting some of my favorites here.

Anyone that remembers a great thread, let me know.

Here's the first.

I've only just begun (sounds like a song, eh?) to check these out--so far I enjoyed this the most. I think Ivan and others should write for "The Onion" and other such offerings... :rofl:

Movies by PF members. These are great!!!

Moonbear made this movie about out PF 2005/2006 New Year's Eve Party, Math Is Hard was sick, I had no where to go, Ivan Seeking was getting bloated on Near Beer and tippling in his secret closet of hoarded Nyquil while his lovely wife Tsu was stranded at an airport, not to mention tribdog and his HUGE Honey Baked ham. http://mm.dfilm.com/mm2s/mm_route.php?id=2760130"

Tribdog made this tribute to Moonbear and ZapperZ's January 2006 trip to Disney World - ]http://mm.dfilm.com/mm2s/mm_route.php?id=2760109"

Yomama agreed I was boring :frown: and features a really tiny Zz :tongue: http://mm.dfilm.com/mm2s/mm_route.php?id=2760094"

Math Is Hard was able to obtain rare film footage of one of zooby's dates. :bugeye: http://mm.dfilm.com/mm2s/mm_route.php?id=2760129"

Gale managed to turn back time and join our PF New Year's Party after all :smile: http://mm.dfilm.com/mm2s/mm_route.php?id=2760948"

Before these threads get pushed too far aside (or worse dumped into the bit bucket to make room for more threads), I propose to assemble them together, perhaps in a place like Classic Discussion Threads.

They are quite entertaining reading and had me laughing :rofl: reading some of our PF members reminiscences. I recall most of these shows too..
