~*~ Goons With Spoons ~*~
If you've gotten as far as to read Internet articles about Internet forums (as you apparently have) but you're still not killing yourself by eating dishes of incredible unhealthiness devised by fellow Internet people, well I just don't know what to do with you.
ICSA XXI: Not a Dry Eye in the House - A quiet stilled over the land, that is until bombastic onions burst forth from the earth, heralding an age of teary terror. Until the mighty Goon Chefs came forth with their knives, ready to cull the onion hoardes into delicious cuisine!
Cooking Vegetarian/Vegan - Cast aside your meaty habits for a night and try one of these green dishes.
Avocado pit: does it stop guacamole turning brown? - If you've ever made guacamole, you may have also heard the old wive's tale about leaving the pit inside your mix. Is there any truth to the tip?
Mojito cupcakes! - Minty treats abound!
I somehow grew a lot of mint, help me use it - Mint left over from your mojito cupcakes? Here are some more ideas.
Pork: questions and answers - Tips and tricks for the other white meat.
~*~ The Goon Doctor ~*~
I got this gnarly gash on my leg and it's throbbing and now my head is all swollen up and I look like the redhead dude from that movie Mask. Should I seek medical attention?
My body doesn't bruise - What's black and blue and posts in TGD? I don't know, but it's not rump_roaster!
Tell me about ADD - Oooh! This looks like an interesting thread! It's actually been going on since April. Did you know Easter is in April sometimes? I like bunnies. Do I have homework for my class tomorrow? Hey! I'll bet there are some interesting threads in this subforum...
Gum infection? - Did it really take 5 people on the internet saying "GO TO THE FUCKING DENTIST" to almost convince someone that maybe bleeding gums, mediocre oral hygiene, and 3 years without a dental cleaning is a bad plan?!?
I get serious headaches and i have for years, plus i think im crazy - HOLY CRAP that's a long-ass OP. What's the enlightening diagnosis? EAT A SAMMICH!
~*~ No Music Discussion ~*~
Reppin': JOHNSON MCHUGH
Who doesn't like music? It's me. I'm the guy that doesn't like music.
That was a lie and I apologize.
Sound-Alikes: Do you ever hear a song and think it sounds similar to a different song? You can talk about two songs with the same sound in this thread. Also don't put the words "Zeppelin" and "Taurus" in the same sentence or you're gonna get beat up!
Help me understand The Pixies: Some guy hears this band from the late 80s that combines catchy rock tunes with anguished screaming and lyrics about incest and the Bible. Rather than turn away and run from them, he's content to stare them down and hope to figure out just what's so damn great about the Pixies.
Live Earth concerts: It feels like a redux of the 1980s, because musicians are suddenly pretending to care about "issues" again. Being socially relevant is a terrific replacement for musical relevance, as the majority of the event's acts have displayed!
Tell me what's so good about Iron Maiden - Number of the Beast : This thread provides yet another example of goons refusing to accept their own dissenting opinions on things deemed "classic" by fans and critics alike. Maybe you're just crazy, did you ever consider that??
Recommend Essential Hi-hop/Rap Albums Of The 90's and 00's: You'd think that anything truly essential would be common knowledge to the casual hip-hop fan, but I'll give "krooj" the benefit of a Reasonable Doubt and assume he's new to the whole genre.
What's happening with "mainstream" music?: RexDart basically made this thread to tell everyone how little he knows about today's top artists. The thread also includes goons complaining about how crappy mainstream music is (using only lyrics to prove their point), as well as this gem of a quote: "The only talented musician that 'contemporary America' has at this moment is John Mayer." Read at your own risk!
Record collecting (vinyl records): Spiderbox and friends revisit the fading tradition of buying albums in a pizza-sized format, with glorious cover artwork and fragile discs galore.
Salvia Divinorum: The Megathread & FAQ - v2.0 - I highly suggest everyone skip this thread, go buy the strongest salvia you can find, and smoke it all immediately. Don't blame me if you shit your pants.
Trip report: 52 year old Bulgarian gun powder - Goon PFC. Spengler relieves his awesome trip with some explosive ammunition. Kind of like that movie Lord of War, except he's nowhere as cool as Nick Cage.
Desperate times - No description of this thread, just a quote:
once after eating mushrooms i puked but i didn't want to waste them so i picked them out of the puke and ate them again and tripped
Give me your best "special" recipes - Sigma 6 shares an awesome recipe for some brownies with honey and bananas. Its like Goons with Spoons, but the spoons are for freebasing.
"Smell" Enough To Warrant Probable Cause? - An informative thread started by goon Sharks eat Bear. Smells like pot in the car? You're a stoner to the cops. Smells like P'Zones? You're a goon.
How to prepare mescaline from a San Pedro cactus and trip on it - Pretty much the most informative thread title in TCC, read along so you can find the inevitable link to the GOONMEET - DESERT thread.
The Big, Red, Syrupy DXM Thread - The-Mole has ALL the information you need to know about DXM. All you need to do is go to Sam's Club and buy a case of Robitussin.
The first time "fast", "decisive", and "efficient" could have been used to describe the Minecraft development team was when they snatched the $2.5 billion dollar check out of Microsoft's sweaty, shaking hand.
Paleo guru and definite non-idiot Luke K. clears the air about some of your favorite pumpkin treats this holiday season. Also he weighs in on the controversy surrounding a paleo wedding cake.
