Default Typical posts on ISH

Not really trying to knock anybody but these are some posts I find amusing on here. It happens in ALL threads of certain categories. Funny stuff. But don't stop on account, I don't want to be a killjoy

The Best ......
Usually in these type of threads a poster will start of with a general consensus opinion. Then every following post is to try to get in the response nobody has mentioned yet. Sometimes acting shocked nobody even mentioned it yet even though the chosen response was mediocre. Then someone goes overkill and lists off every single response not mentioned
Example: Best Spiderman Villian
OP: Venom
next poster: Sabretooth
next poster: it's got to be Doc Oc
next poster: no: it's Goblin
Next poster: Electro, Sandman, Carnage, Mysterio, Scorpion, Hobgoblin, Rhino
Next poster: What, no mention of Flash Thompson?!?!!

Your Favorite.....
Similar to The Best.... threads but in this one when somebody asks Your Favorite.... there is somebody who has a need to make a list even though favorite generally means one. Usually it's to list off every response not mentioned just to be the first to get it in

(NBA Lounge) The Greatest.....
This is the only one that actually irks me. Anytime a subject is created with The Greatest....., no matter what it is somebody always seems to think posting "Jordan, nuff said" is the definitive answer. Irks the crap out of me because it further feeds into the Jordan over hype syndrome, even if the response is clearly far fetched
Example: Best Backcourt duo
OP: Magic and Scott
next poster: Isiah and Dumars
next poster: Monroe and Frazier
Next poster: Jordan and anybody, nuff said

/End Thread
Worst expression on a subjective forum. I'd rather respond "great post"

best ones I can think of.

Tone Loc is the shit. One of the first hip hop albums I ever got and it's actually good to this day.



proof that his first album wasn't just Wild Thing, Funky Cold Medina and filler:

Tone Loc - Cheeba Cheeba

Tone Loc - The Homies

While Sabretooth has battled Spiderman, he is really more of an X-Men/Wolverine villain.
