Topic Wiki

With so much happening on DDF, there are likely many gems that you missed because you weren't following that specific thread. Well I say, "no more!" If you come across a post that you feel deserves a wider audience, whether it was very informative, funny, or deserving of being highlighted for any other reason, post it here.

A few proposed rules:

1) You cannot submit your own posts.
2) Provide necessary context.
3) Quote properly and provide links. Don't say, "Yo, check out Dan's post about RC. It's friggin awesome."
4) Let the person know in the original thread they've been "Best Ofed"
5) This thread is only for DDF. One liners, articles, pictures and videos etc. from outside DDF all have their own threads already.

List of a few of them:
"May your flights depart on time, your apps get auto-approved, and your MS never backfire." -MMGFARB
"Please only reply if you can actually answer the question and not litter the forum with useless Sarcastic banter." -Shnozolla
"Even a broken clock is right twice a day. You're the broken clock." -Baruch
"Sorry. Look at the bright side I just "bump"ed you" -NafNaf12
"I bribed the Guard $1 at the Anti-Corruption Unit to let me into the building - Just for the novelty." -Suave

Thanks! Though it's far from ironic - perhaps the opposite of ironic. (This comment belongs in the pet peeves thread)

huh?

Would you say the correct term is apropos?

That would work. Irony does not mean "neat/cool coincidence." Ironic would be me being against this thread, and then getting excited about having a post of mine added to it.

@Shoobi: sorry if it seems I'm bashing you when you were saying kind things about me, (how's that for irony?) but them be the rules of online discussion: Must. Be. Grammar. Nazi. Oh, and write in one word sentences.

@Something Fishy at it again. Here is is giving a photography lesson while critiquing Ergel's photos in his inimitable style.
Fantastic shot. A perfect example of capturing the moment; you've made a great image in hard conditions. The light is flat and boring, and focus missed the mountain goat and hit the background instead. Even so, the picture is extremely compelling. There's great movement (the goat's in mid leap), as well as tension (How high is he? Will he jump? Is there a cliff on the other side?). The background has a million interesting details to explore, making it a very interesting scene. The more I look at it the more details I discover - my eye goes from the initial "wow - look at that goat!" to more intricate details and observations...

Go read the rest of it.

Incredible ongoing Kenya TR by @Shunts

For example:

Part 3
...We arrived at the airstrip and waited for our plane to arrive. Our scheduled departure time of 10:15 came and went and there was still no plane in sight. We were in Africa after all, and thus the realization that the possibility of the plane not showing up at all was real and that we may be forced to develop alternative Plans for Shabbos.
Our fears evaporated when a few minutes later a gleaming airplane came in for a landing. Flying time would be twenty five minutes to the Masai Mara Oleski airstrip. It was nice to experience a plane making a special pickup just for you. The gate was locked, so we had to wait for the gate keeper who arrived by bike to open the airport.

A tarp for when it rains.
Anyone want to give a tutorial how to successfully assemble one that stays taut and doesn't gather water?  (We had a rather spectacular collapse one year.) Do you string the tarp or use shower curtain hooks?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
