    Isn't "Coffee House" our general discussion forum? Yet 90 percent of topics seem to be silly questions and games rather than open discussion. "Do you need to pee" had over 200 responses. More than silly. Doesn't anyone talk about anything normal here?

    Can you define normal please? :)

    Nope. If you have to actually ask what normal is then it's not likely I could explain it to you. But then again you may have just pointed out the problem here. :unsure:

    what may be normal for one person isn't normal for another person. I never put much confidence on the 'normal' term anyway. Normalcy is so overrated! Besides the Coffee House is there as a distraction mostly...if you want a conversation, start one!

    I thought the coffee house was for light hearted banter and stuff not related for suicidal topics. I for one thought people were having light hearted convos. What's wrong with a funny thread instead of people mithering on about how they hate life. Every once in awhile you need away from that and need a laugh or smile.

    People can also chat via the Social Groups, but nobody seems really bothered about them.

    If you don't like it, you're the only one. Start a conversation thread if you aren't happy (Oh, btw, this doesn't count as one, it's just you slagging off something for the sake of it.) or stop whinging.

    ah "chat" is what the chat room is for :smile: though i can see why people wouldnt want to go int there, childishness etc. but its not just going to change without someone trying to change the mechanics of it.

    you can also have a general chat in soap box too. which is what this current thread is more suited to imho.

    def: conversation noun informal talk between people.

    and informal is messing and silly, and taht is what "do you need to pee" is. people see the light hearted ness it was ment in. thats the whole point of it.

    if you want a general conversation, then pick a general topic ie weather as previously stated here, oh but wait theres already a thread for hows the weather .... :huh:

    --edit---
    and also, the definition of our coffee house is:
    so the current threads open fit that definition quite perfectly.

    and just for s&g soap boxs def:

    so you want a convo about vending machines and/or pizza.

    well fair enough..
    pizza, its ok, lots of calories, and i would be scepticle of pizza from a vending machine as for heating it etc, and i'm not fond of microwave pizza if i do ever have the.

    as for toppings, i like pineapple cheese and onion :smile:

    Somebody describing a pizza vending machine as "a sign of the apocalypse." is normal?

    I'm sure if these sorts of threads were started in the coffee house people would respond to them, it's just a case of starting the ball rolling with what you're interested in I guess.

    Right ur: You started a great thread without even knowing it. A lot of posts with sarcasm, serious input, questions, etc...

    But what I usually do is click on many threads, read what they're about and then decide whether I want to post, continue a debate, try and help out, etc...I don't even look at where the thread is (Coffee House, Soap Box, etc...) because many times it can be in a slightly different area than one would think as it is very subjective.

    Recently, there were many very serious debates about racism, violence, sexting, lying men, lying women, men who want advice on how to talk to women, etc...So once in awhile someone starts a goofy thread about whether you have to pee or not. I think I answered this one right after a long debate on racism...because I had to pee.

    The threads often lead in different directions than originally intended, but I see that you've posted over 300 times so you probably already know this. Right now there is a newer one about GOD...you've probably already seen one like this but just start from top to bottom and click away. Or send one of the people you feel close to a pm. Most will reply. I don't know you but I'm up for any type of conversation on books, religion, Darwinian theory, jokes, etc...feel free to send me a pm, we'll come up with a new thread to start.

    Oh...one more thing, don't be nasty to people like you were with DaisyChain...it doesn't get anywhere and she posed a legitimate question. Anyway, she doesn't need me to back her up, she can handle herself.

    ZIGGY: Great line about the weather and the mouse,lol!
