    Default A question for the Foo about the Foo

    Can a Foo thread ever be off topic? Are Foosters obligated to stay on task? Is it possible to derail a Foo thread?

    No. All Foo threads are nearly perfect as they are. That’s why they’re 5 stars.

    For example, it’s taco Tuesday and I’m not eating tacos.

    The mess on the mbb forum is another issue. It sucks to scroll through pages of internet poster to posters fighting when you’re trying to find out about a new recruit.

    There is no order in the midst of chaos.

    I submit your answer be accepted as official foo doctrine. Except that there is no official foo doctrine, so my motion should fail. I submit it anyway, never stopped me before.

    As for fighting on the MBB, as one who had a breakdown recently, I submit that fights are bad, and I am guilty of throwing a punch. But he was dissing a high school kid who had already signed with us! Is it ok to at least pushback then?

    I actually kind of want to know, bc I trust foo judgment, even though positive stuff came out of it - the foo is final arbiter, that's official foo doctrine, too.

    Does anybody have a recommendation for a pest control service in my area? We’ve got squirrels in the attic.

    But it is nice to get up to the minute news on the weekend weather forecast for Spokane.
