View Full Version : BBS History III; From dish washing to religious wars

01-05-2007, 10:46 AM
Dear fellow BBSers, another year has passed teaching us many valuable lessons. Once again it's time to look back on a time when diswashing was a promising career start, self-defence lessons were told by people who really knew what they were talking about, wonderful literature was written and religious values really mattered.

In 2006 we finally discovered that true Offspring fans (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24957&page=1&pp=10) really exist, even though the band screwed the fans and would not wish them happy holidays (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27772) any more.

Probably the most useful lesson for life all of us could learn on here was how to make preps cry (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=23045). A further level of self-defence is the sissykicking (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25208). To enroll for practise, consult Whiplash who notoriously denied (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25335&page=3&highlight=pathfinder+whiplash) being pathfinder after creating a new user name in shame. And if that's not enough for you, Maria (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26865&page=4) can teach you how to make armed robbers die (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26911), because she knows it from the movies!

But it takes more than trupunx to wage a religious war. A real jihad (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27326) (multiply thread by over 300) was started in the Politics section over some cute stick drawings (a gallery established later (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27413)), or at least the terrorists thought so. But it seems Allah is not against Muhammed doing laundry, the Turks are gone, Kurds are still better (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26454) lovers and religion (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27423) continues to flourish.

And while we're on the topic of worship, let's not forget the 36-year old dishwasher virgin (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26279) who taught us how to shut her out! (Post #75). Mark Bryan, now with picture gallery (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v372/ricky2tone/40virginlol.jpg), will be remembered by his teachings of cannabis and cantheism and Gusto's (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26300) with clean plates.

A big accomplishment was that we finally proved that we're not just drunks and drug addicts with no lives, but also have a humanitarian side when the BBS attempted to help save the puppy (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27243). But did it really?

Like every year, there have been many glorious comebacks. Among these Oxygene (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27132), bringing us backstage passes straight from the Asian steppe, Mark with the insane conspiracy faggotry (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26436&page=3) and TTiG for doing a lolz (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26805).

Literature did not come short this year with a new collection of Sin Studly's ballads:

The Ballad of Tanichka (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25072)
The Ballad of Sanni (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?p=859915#post859915)
The Ballad of Postman Per (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25092)
The Ballad of Joey (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25110)
The Ballad of Gülşah (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25100)
The Ballad of Oxygene (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27353)

And those of you who intend to try so hard this year, won't get too far since last year we established the effort police (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22142).

Oh and before we rush into another year, you really should (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24940) check out my band www.myspace.com/dtoxrockers

Semi-compulsory study literature:

Not a good year.

01-05-2007, 11:15 AM
haha!))You're a good chronicler! It's very pretty!

01-05-2007, 11:18 AM
This is amazing, but haven't you always done these on the anniversaries of when the BBS started?

01-05-2007, 11:20 AM
Good point. I wanted to keep the October (then April again) date but it was kinda hard to come up with enough threads that would make it. So I waited, because it's been a little weaker since April last year.

01-05-2007, 11:24 AM
Sweet. I've been waiting for this and you know it.

01-05-2007, 11:31 AM
This is fantastic.

Very, very well done. I would have figured Jojan's boobs would be somewhere in here, though.

01-05-2007, 12:06 PM
Simma, you're as legitmate a historian as I've ever come across! Wonderful compilation here!

lol, sissykicking.

01-05-2007, 12:13 PM
I wonder whats going to happen this year. Another religious war?

01-05-2007, 12:15 PM
This was classy. It was fun because some of them were jokes I knew about, but had never seen the threads for. *Applauds*.

01-05-2007, 12:21 PM
I hate you for not posting as much as you used to do. :( You make this board ten times better.

01-05-2007, 12:53 PM
The last two were hilarious. This one isn't that funny.

01-05-2007, 01:03 PM
Yay! Story time!

01-05-2007, 01:50 PM
Awesome, Maria's stupidity frightens me some times.

01-05-2007, 03:10 PM
This thread brought back old nostalgia that I had previously lost, but now have found, no matter who you are, I'll be here to love you.

anyone anyone?

Yea, way to distract away from the thread. Atleast read about it before you talk about it. Mormons don't deserve to be mentioned here.

that was great. just like the first two.

01-05-2007, 04:57 PM
This thread is like, zomg-lol-wtf-zomg-lol-wtf-zomg-lol-wtf. Keep it up.

01-05-2007, 08:28 PM
This whole "BBS History" thing is great, but I've noticed that most of the references come from very late in the year, like in the last month or so.

10-18-2007, 08:17 AM
I still love this and the other two.

10-18-2007, 08:20 AM
Does this mean another BBS History thread is coming up? The past 10 months since this thread have been very historical.

10-18-2007, 09:18 AM
It's time for another BBS history thread!

10-18-2007, 09:19 AM
I've always loved these threads. Simma is amazing.

10-18-2007, 09:45 AM
I favor new history (I've been absent and am curious as to what else I missed)

10-18-2007, 09:48 AM
These are fab and why I'm so very glad this board has been around for so long. Gems to be treasured.

10-18-2007, 09:48 AM
Not a good year.

Well, I did miss half of it.

This was way funnier than History of the World Part I, but then so is cancer.
I had completely forgotten about Whiplash's aborted first attempt to join the board.

I was going to ask why Sinister's predatorial tendencies or the belated April Fools thread weren't included until I realized the thread was almost 11 months old. I'm from Canada, they think I'm a little slow, eh?

10-18-2007, 01:24 PM
I fell off the monkey bars, and when I woke up I was in here.

10-18-2007, 01:38 PM
My approach on Oxygene was the best on that list, by far. Fuck everything else.

10-19-2007, 05:39 PM
Come on, Mark_Bryan_420 was lulz incarnate.

10-19-2007, 11:31 PM
I hesitated between mild amusement and crushing bouts of pity.
