    ....since everyone is complaining about stuid topics on the board and all that crap. Why don't we start something lame like book club? Pick a book for everyone to read, set a time limit, and then discuss it on the board.

    So I thinking that the book should be number9dream by david mitchell.

    If it works it works, if not it's my stupid thread of the day.

    Your solution to curing the stupid thread problem, is to start something lame?

    Hi Keith.

    If we have a book club, can I tell you which character is my fav-o-rite?

    "It's like playing a video game."

    Actually I think it's a good Idea,
    but for the TBK?

    i agree.
    you are talking about people that complain that a 3 paragraph post is "too much information"

    getting them to read a book would be like.. umm.. like.. getting them to do something real tough.

    Are you trying to imply that there are not very many intellects on this board? [​IMG]

    I second that...but apparently Melepants finds it a little difficult, so we'll just stick her in front of the tel-o-vision, where her mind can be appropriately stimulated without overload...

    I've already read every book ever written, including the ones that haven't even been published yet.

    But yeah I'd be in.

    I am sliding off my chair in anticipation of your "better" idea.

    The only thing more annoying than incessant pissing and moaning about lame threads is pissing and moaning without actively doing anything to change shit.

    Actually, I don't. Keith said in first post "Why don't we start something lame like book club?". I wasn't saying I think it's lame.

    So fuck off.

    Please see above explanation. I wasn't pissing and complaining. I wasn't saying it was lame, Keith was.

    Once again, fuck off.

    Sorry Keith...

    Keith i think this is a good idea but I have so many other books i have to read for school so right now is not the best time. If this doesn't work try it again in June when most people are finished school and can afford the time to read. What is number9dream about?

    I read slowly since I don't have much time for it, I'm lucky if I open my book up once a week. I don't think that I could catch up to the Tribe book worms...

    I think "The Multi-Orgasmic Man" would be more on point for a tribe book club.
