~*~ General Bullshit ~*~
GBS is the forum where threads that don't quite fit anywhere else go. We already have lots of specialized subforums already though, so a large portion of what flows into GBS are threads like "I just pooped my pants at work today and I don't remember eating all that corn". Oh, and these:
What pictures of JC do you find most inspiring? - Jesus saves image as: the thread for stocking up on all the Jesus pictures you need for your funny pics file.
You just BAGGED a 30lb Roe Deer Fawn! - An online hunting game made for Rednecks and gunless Europeans. You have just bagged 2,200 pounds of meat. You may only take 200 back to camp.
Sonichu and his quest for a boyfriend-free girl - Just so we can be clear, this is how real Asperger's screws up your social skills.
Jell-O Shots (organic edition) - The health conscious alcoholic now has the option of completely removing bull hooves from their diet. This is actually cooler than it sounds.
turn people into muppets - Muppets are people, racist.

The Thomas Pynchon thread
Ten pounds of literary titan in a five pound sack, tackling Thomas Pynchon is not for the faint of heart. Give yourself a step up and read this thread for a few summaries of his work and advice on how to get started.
JD Salinger -- His Other Books are Better
Yeah. Yeah they were.
Not everyone has a drunk booking agent for a club in Wilkes Barre to make fun of them for reading Catcher in the Rye in public. For you, there is this thread.
