I would agree with that.  As it is though, that is unlikely to happen.

all this suit talk dozingoff.gif

More interestingly, a day after Microsoft introduced an innocent Artificial Intelligence chat robot to Twitter it has had to delete it after it transformed into an evil Hitler-loving, incestual sex-promoting, 'Bush did 9/11'-proclaiming robot.

Wonder what styleforum would do to such an innocent robit
post #8599 of 15158

Uh, I think it's pretty obvious that the styleforum version of that robot would tell its followers Hedi invented jodhpurs, double riders, and skinny pants / the 2030 last is shit / and go down a half size for barrie

it would become a slightly more racist hirsh
post #8601 of 15158

Hirsh wasn't racist. just a denim lover who tried to make friends instead of enemies! She exposed us to the darker side of internet fashion and we are all grateful for it. Imagine if she posted on SuFu instead of here. Eventually she got caught slipping like the best of them and Fok brought out the ban hammer. RIP, the greatest denim bro of all.

Man On Internet Almost Falls Into World Of DIY Mustard Enthusiasts

DES MOINES, IA—When Steve Gibson first became casually involved with an online community of mustard makers, he had no idea his mild interest in the condiment would, within a few short months, spiral dangerously out of control.

But Gibson, unlike so many others, managed to get out before the hobby consumed his entire life.

"I don't know how I wound up at that point, but thank God I escaped when I did," Gibson, 41, said Friday. "There I was, a grown man, planning a trip to the Mustard Museum in Wisconsin, when suddenly I heard a voice deep within me say, 'This is not what you want your life to be about.'"

"It was like waking up from a bad dream," Gibson added. "A bad yellow and brown dream."

Gibson's descent into the depths of mustard obsession started innocently enough, when he got involved in an Internet exchange about the best kind of mustard to use on a grilled bratwurst. When someone posted a link encouraging him to "click on this if you really want to spice things up," he took the stranger's advice and suddenly found himself on MustardMonster.com, a discussion group devoted to the cultivation, preparation, and enjoyment of the table-side condiment.

"I immediately realized I was out of my league," Gibson said of his first encounter with the Internet's do-it-yourself mustard community. "At that point I had maybe three different kinds of mustard in my refrigerator, but when I looked at their forum topics, these guys were talking about the strengths of unique varieties of imported mustard seeds, brewing your own vinegar for mustard-making, ways to improve store-bought mustard when you find yourself in a pinch. That…that was the start of what I now call my 'lost year.'"

You can call it my "lost decade".

What's this year's Granna tshirt? @notwithit



Also: @La Guy when I have my Surface in tablet mode, the search button/magnifiying glass doesn't respond to touch - it work only if you're using a mouse. If I'm in tablet mode, and I touch the icon, nothing happens. Maybe a quirk of the desktop version of the site?
post #8608 of 15158
My main problem with Grana t-shirts were that they shrunk way too much in length after 2-3 washes.

This year @La Guy recommended the Alternative Apparel Eco-Jersey and I really like them--50% Polyester, 38% Cotton, 12% Rayon and I sized one up as they're still pretty slim.

lol amazing. Reminds me of the shaving forum, Badger and Blade. There are 7.8 MILLION POSTS. About shaving. 

 

Look at this list of acronyms.

Highlights include:

 

3017ers:
Wet shavers with large stockpiles of soap who are (aggressively) using it up one puck/tub/stick/tube at a time. Some of them estimate they will run out in about 3017.

 

BBS:
Baby butt smooth. A completely smooth shave result. Circular rubbing pattern with the fingertips can't detect any sort of stubble left, period. See also DFS, CCS and SAS.

 

CCS:
Close, comfortable shave. Perhaps a notch less than a DFS. WTG is completely smooth, XTG and ATG both can detect very tiny levels of stubble. (see also BBS, DFS, and SAS)

 

FBW:
Full Bottle Worthy

 

KOVT:
Knights of the Veg Table. A group started by Luvmysuper for fans of Lilac Vegetal aftershave. (See also LV).

 

LOTH:
Lady of the House (see also TWGW and SWMBO)

 

PFB:
Pseudofolliculitis Barbae; ingrown hairs caused by shaving

 

SMF:
"Shave My Face," another wet-shaving on-line community, sometimes referred to as "[the forum] across the street." See also TSD.

 

YTAD:
Yixing Teapot Acquisition Disorder

 

I spent hours there one day. I couldn't look away.

Do you think it is feasible to have one of your employees do a sweep of the most used phrases (e.g. one liners) used on Styleforum, add a couple of dank memes, 1 or 2 "Dubiously Honored" catch phrases and make it so that upon 'thumbs up' the user can quickly pick a phrase. It can be done in one click, right? I think it would be a good compromise for the lazy and those that enjoy leaving comments as well as those who are really trying to avoid cluttering forum space. Granted, it may not be personable or unique but as much emotes there are I am sure someone creative can come up with 78 options to choose from. And I think it'd be funny to see see 56 thumbs with the same comment back to back. May be the information you can collect for more statistics to use later for a different project? It would be fun [funny], which is really the spirit of things here right?
