Sorry, I don't see the humour in this just a lot of barbed comments and in some cases downright unpleasant innuendo. Or am I being a tad oversensitive ? At least my eyes are still working. Max

It does rather start the debate on humour.

It'll get some laughs.

It's a shame, because our man posted it with good intent and all we've done is slapped it down, but real humour shouldn't leave people feeling down or inadequate. Real humour laughs at situations that people find themselves in, not the people.

Sorry to pop our friend's bubble, but it's a matter of opinion - said the man with a wooden leg (and that's probably non-PC now as well) :speechless::speechless::speechless:

I think that we probably see much of ourselves in that tome, makes uncomfortable reading to see some of the truth and I include myself as one of the uncomfortable ones. Still at least I can stand up and be counted for having heavily modified some of my G Scale Trains. Plus I was into 0 Gauge when I was seriously poor, Scratch Building stuff can be quite cheep it you have the time, inclination and patience.

Similar to Jon’s comments having dabbled in N, OO, O and now G, I see some broad likeness, and if some outsiders were to look in to the hobby may see like these “comments”. Not taking any personally, I found them mildly amusing.

What does "LARP" mean?
Live Action Role Playing (LARP)
people, who dress up in costumes for some events and play the role, that their dress implies.

in europe there are many medivial-age LARPS. (usually 3 or 4 day events)
the "reenactments" of independence or civil war in the US are more or less the same.


the original post seems to be more sarcastic than funny. from my point of view.

edit: but we shouldn't forget, that humour is a highly cultural thing.
(remember: english food - german jokes - french tecnology)

What does "LARP" mean?
Live Action Role-Playing. The folks who like to run around the woods dressed in Orc masks and hit each other with rubber swords. And we think that we're strange.... :rofl:

Actually, I know quite a few LARPers and most of them are really nice people.... just "enthusiasts" like we are.

Jon.

Then there is that game where people whack a ball with a stick to get it in a small hole in some grass. Having managed that they take it out again and try with a different hole in some more grass. You would think that having achieved the goal of getting the ball in the hole they would leave it there?

No, you can't leave it there, it'sagainst the rules!
He we go, I'm taking the Mick out of people's hobbies, after whining about someone doing the same to us!

So maybe we all need to "lighten up" life is too short, especially at my age :)

I think generally we're fairly good at taking the rip out of ourselves - It's just that for some of us, the original humour didn't quite get the ball in the hole :nerd::nerd::nerd:

Tony, if you click on the 'thumbnail' it should open in a new window..

I 'get' the stereotypes, and so a wry-smile.. I think it is the profanity, and barbed comments, that detract from the humour?

Korm:
French technology plumbing! ;)

We all take the michael out of each other.. Our 'faction' is best!
Hence I occasionally throw the 'upper / lower quadrant signalling - which is best?' rant discuss out. ;):giggle:


<edit>
This is another post that does not appear to have 'posted' though I am sure I did??

Thanks Phil.
It surely does open but the type face is so small these tired old eyes cannot read it.
If you magnify it the type face does get bigger but the top 30% and bottom 30% cannot be read and you cannot scroll it.
