Why are we here?

I come to the forum for company during the day and because I like to laugh and joke around. Oh, yeah, I also am occassionally looking for information about car-related stuff.

I was just thinking about how suddenly fights erupt in OD and it made me wonder what prompts everyone else to log on to the forum. I rarely take offense at the coments made by others and try not to be offensive either.

It made me wonder if some folks here get pissed off about something at home, work, etc. and then come here and take it out on whomever is available. Am I crazy?

Nah. Dee.. You seem too mild mannered (and well mannered I might add) to go nutz here and get down and dirty.('least that's my first impression, having had the pleasure)
But you know what they say about the "quiet type"

For meÖItís all about being stuck in a hangar office and needing some entertainment.

Some folks (and the threads) here are more entertaining than others, mind you. But weíre all capable for sure.

Nice balance here.
Thatís not to say that sometimes kicking things a little off, isnít necessary.

Oh hell no you di'n't.

I just monkeyed with the fax.

I kicked Chuck Norris' a$$ ... twice.

My wife is on double secret probation.

My Lamborghini was so slow I traded for a Veyron.

I think so much of my monster toy that I named myself for a horse.
