Us POTM mods felt that a thread like this was a good idea to help those moments of awesomeness at the beginning of a month receive the recognition they deserve and be able to influence people of their nominations when the time comes. We won't be remaking this thread each month, there can be only one!

So here is where you place quotes of or links to great posts made over the course of the month. Now a few words on how to use it:

  • Copy and paste the full code for quotes or post a link to the specific post, merely copying and pasting the text will not show a date stamp and matters could get slightly confused.
  • Make sure your link/quote is for the relevant month, although as long as it is recent that shouldn't be a problem.
  • If it's a picture you're quoting, a link will do. There's no point filling this thread up with funny pictures, we already have a thread for that.
  • Please don't spam this thread out with agreements, lols and the like. Find the post in the main forum and lol there if you must. Remember this sub-forum has by far the highest moderator to active thread ratio. It will be noticed!

This thread will be unlocked when the current competition is over.

This seems an opportune moment to point out the other thread in this forum, which is for precisely this purpose. Well done for remembering Jezz, in future you might not have to.

Stickied! tongue

Would work if it was open after all funny stuff can already happen during the current PotM wink

It will be open in general, but let's just get this inaugural POTM done first.

[edit]Dammit! Booze was right!

somebody went and broke New Mexico.  It's snowing.  In May.  Also, my landlord turned off the heaters in the whole apartment building because, you know, it would be ridiculous to think that anyone could possibly need them in the desert in May!

It's frakking cold in here!

futurefreak may not be eligible to win for almost a year, but this is still a worthy post.

I've been told it's "male humour" before.
I can see that. Girls aren't supposed to find physics jokes humorous, they're supposed to like makeup and stickers and ponies and myspace.com!

I've edited the above posts to include quotes of the nomination-worthy bits mentioned within. That way this thread is easier to browse as a showcase, without extra tedious clicking.

This is probably Otis' most hilarious post ever.



I trusted Sony too, nothing lately has broken that trust, I mean none of this is their fault at all. It's all the damn hackers fault, but I tell you what, even though Sony are gods and I thought they could do no wrong, they've overstepped the line now, telling us it would be online by Tuesday and it not being there, this the first time they've ever put a foot wrong, I'm so shocked and dismayed, I don't know how I am gonna ever get over this and build my trust back up with them. The seed of doubt has been planted, all those posters of the PS3 I have lining my walls like wallpaper, I can't look at them now, I just can't see Sony in the same light ever again…

I think I might even go as far as to remove the photo of a PS3 from my wallet that I take everywhere I go. I look at it when times get tough, and it gives me strength when I think of the best moments of my life playing on my PS3. I just don’t know if looking at it will ever have the same effect again now. They’ve betrayed me, the trust barrier is broken, maybe it’s just a rocky patch and our relationship will become strong again, but I have doubts it can ever reach the lofty heights it once was. To think, until last night our relationship was stronger than an Xbox 360...

All you faddish followers of the latest thing, I'm perfectly happy with my stone circle. The very pinnacle of lithomantic technology it is, overrocked to 38megaliths, 500kilograms of foundation memory, lintles 3.1, portable if you have a team of oxen to hand and it's environmentally friendly. Doesn't need any energy at all, and it's made of rock. I haven't had a blue stone of death for ages, which is lucky as the last one nearly killed me. I'm getting it hooked up with Virgin soon, I hear they don't screw around.

I've seen things young PEELers wouldn't believe. Booze's hands on fire by the Moon Over Water. I watched stoned Belgians fall over in the dark near Amsterdam square. All those moments will be lost in time... like posts before the crash. Time to die.

So rant: on occasion people can suck.

On occasion? No, people suck all the time. The only thing that varies is when and how they reveal their particular flavour of suckitude to you.

Once you move past the end of the universe, though, you're outside the house. The path takes you back to the first door. The metaphor works properly now.

Time isn't set out how you think. People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly... timey-wimey... stuff. In fact, whilst people tend to think of it as linear, time isn't a straight line, it's all... bumpy-wumpy. there's loads of boring stuff, like sundays and tuesdays and thursday afternoons.

I've got a couple doomsday devices laying around. eBay rejected
them, but Craigslist accepted my time machine! I needed a new one,
anyway. It would only go back as far as when Tony Danza was born.
60 years isn't that bad, but I can never cinch when to save
Kennedy.
and from that debatey thread in recheck weird scenes:

Quote from: DannyJC13
Incorrect, the original Fry, Bender and Professor are crushed by
their future versions in the One-Way Time Machine, to which the
Professor exclaims:
You really need to try and live up to your 'Nerd' title a little harder.

and I nom pretty much every post made by TNUK and Chives in that thread.

Girls are evil, and guys are stupid.

There, I just summed up all relationship problems, ever. No charge, no need to thank me.
You could also say girls are stupid and guys are evil. You could also say girls are guys and evil is stupid.
There, life summed up.
Both posts are worthy.  The bolded part struck me especially poignantly.

Ok.  I'm going to try and restrain myself here... please forgive me for my failures... but you're very welcome.  It's difficult for me to put thought blocks together right now... but I'll get some more icy hot in the afternoon you see.  I really like that thread title though.... it feels like a holiday.... it's been like a holiday to me today.... you helped with that DannyJC13.  Thank you.  You have no idea how hard that was to type.  IT WAS RELALFYFH JVUCVJK KSDIGBNHAGHGARD.

That is my submission to the Nom-Worthy Posts thread. wink

But it was posted in the Nom-Worthy Posts thread, so that must mean....

PARADOX.

INFACT, I nominate every post winna has made and will make on the night of May 21st 2011. UK time. smile

Kitchens are the most privately intimacies of the human psychological connection.  That's where they do the cooking, and the love making... and the baby rearing... the grave digging... and the clothes stringing.  Save your soul, eh?  A marked tombstone in my alleyway gov'nah?  REACH INTO THE SKY AND PULL BACK THE SEAMS OF YOUR REVOLUTIONARY ORGANS.

This made me laugh harder than it probably should've.

We're all sick of your upbeat attitude, SpaceMaN.
'Bout time!!

This too:

This is a friend of mine's Facebook status today. He is a very devout Christian and runs a Christian youth scheme and stuff and really does take his faith seriously (he was even a Biblical literalist once upon a time, but has woken up in recent years). Anyway, epic status, I think:



A question occurs: Would doubleposting to seperate one idea from another be acceptable within this thread?

Usual rules. Don't bother double posting if you come here with two posts to link to, but if you're the last poster and a second post catches your eye, you wont be lambasted for double posting. Of course you could delay the second post to make it appear like you weren't double posting for the sake of it, but you guys aren't that petty about post counts are you?

Could you delay the second post until you find another post to make so that there is a post you made sandwiched between the two posts you made? confused
