Only after we ban Bricypoo.

Now, by this, I mean when people post one sentence on topic. Then make the rest of their post about something off topic as in about a user, a thread, pie, exc.

Does this annoy you? or am I the only one

“Oh, it’s a little bit of everything, it’s the mountains, it’s the fog, it’s the news at six o’clock, it’s the death of my first dog, it’s the angels up above me, it’s the song that they don’t sing, It’s a little bit of everything.”
- Dawes, A little bit of everything

I feel that this is obvious bait to attract "This thread is now about ..." posts. If you actually want my opinion, I agree. I find it really annoying and very often report such posts. Unfortunately, it seems that not much ever gets done.

I like pie.

I almost always agree with that. Sometimes though, the side conversations spark something.

Because if you take a female monkey and fourteen horny dingos, the result can only be a baby or a dead monkey.

I don't see why you're so confused about this.

I think it makes a good bit of sense most of the time OP. Think about your IM A DINOSAUR CHOMPING ON YOUR BUNIONS.

I know exactly what you're talking about OP.

The yo-yo in its simplest form is an object consisting of an axle connected to two disks, and a length of twine looped around the axle, similar to a slender spool. It is played by holding the free end of the string (usually by inserting one finger in a slip knot) allowing gravity or the force of a throw to spin the yo-yo and unwind the string (similar to how a pullstring works), then allowing the yo-yo to wind itself back to one's hand, exploiting its spin (and the associated rotational energy). This is often called "yo-yoing". First made popular in the 1920s, yo-yoing remains a popular pastime of many generations and cultures. It was first invented in ancient Greece.

Because the thread is not interesting enough on its own.

Hyle and his mother are yo-yos.

It's possible (I'm not saying this is always the case) that some posters don't find the discussion interesting, and just choose to push the discussion in a different direction. However, digression is different than a new topic out of left field.

Case and point: don't worry about it. Girls start getting boobies pretty soon, and then you'll have plenty of other things to think about. Being an Inheritor is not a life goal.

I like pie.

This is the exact thing that the world needs to worry about. People aren't liking pie enough, I fear that it is becoming a huge problem that we can't turn back from.

OT: No, I never see anyone doing it.

No no no, it was invented by the Wickedtoe tribe in the South Sahara as a weapon. They would sit on top of trees and throw the yo-yo down and hit birds as they flew under them.

Hello community, If you have any questions or concerns then please feel free to ask, whatever it may be and I will answer them to the best of my knowledge/ability. (It may not be THE answer you're looking for but AN answer is better than NO answer.)

KEEP CALM AND PLAY XBOX
Thank you.

It mildly annoys me when a user posts something else off-topic in their post.

I made chicken patties for dinner today. They were good. There were 4 in a pack from the store near my man pad. Nuked em' in the microwave for about 50 seconds then i put some ketchup on it. Luckily I remembered to buy rolls. That would have been very inconvenient if I didn't. Then I washed it all down a cool Budweiser. Oh yeah, beer and cereal don't mix from past experience.
