    Hi all. Perhaps I'm not in a great mood, but I have to say, after scrolling through the "new posts", there are a lot of dumb threads, so, I thought I'd start one of my own. Here are just a few threads that make me think some folks have too much time on their hands:
    1) How long can you spin
    2) Post your sunglasses
    3) Post your external hard drive
    4) Who's got a nice watch
    5) Favorite movie robots

    Wow. Riveting!
    Anyway, go ahead and post some more, for those of you who read this dumb post :)

    I don't see what's wrong with #3. Atleast it's on topic. You are right about the other ones though.

    Welcome to MR.

    Did you think you would get a different result??

    We are but a microcosm of Out There™. Nothing startling, to be sure.

    I vote this thread be closed, as it's insulting to those who start other threads.

    I told you guys I wasn't in a great mood. It just seems funny what people will post. How about the old classic "how many squares of toilet paper do you use".
    I know one "how often do you pick up your dogs poop"
    or, maybe, "post your messy room"
    and then there could be "how long is your nose hair".
    Just to add a few.

    You being in a bad mood doesn't justify posting ridiculous threads like this. Go take a nap and stop ragging on others who post here!

    Wow, I never knew people would post threads like those. Those should just be closed because they are off topic... but I guess this thread is too... so I have no idea what to think.

    The "Post your socks" thread, which quickly degenerated into mindless insulting was particularly stupid.

    Just playing devils advocate, people. Don't go getting your panties in a bunch.
    I just had to mention some of the sillier threads out there taking up space as we navigate through this site trying to find something useful. And, I agree, this is one of those space wasting threads right here.
