Curious about what’s been happening this week on the Mountain Xpress user forums? Let’s take a look.
Forum regular Johnny Lemuria has had it up to here with this country. And in the spirit of our Local subforum, he’s examining a decidedly local solution: Maybe it’s time for North Carolina to consider seceeding from the Union. And, as you might expect from such a provacative topic, there has been plenty of discussion — serious and lighthearted — in the thread.
Other interesting ongoing local topics this week include the describe Asheville in three words thread, the ongoing discussion of “URTV drama” and the thread where MX forums posters talk about the Asheville section of the Topix forums.
Meanwhile, in the Non-Local news subforum, a new thread has appeared for those who have simply had it with that rascally 44th President of the United States: Obama out to destroy America … Again!! But something tells me they’re not taking it all that seriously. For instance: “I heard he was a manchurian candidate who is going to order an air strike upon us all once we are waiting in our bread lines like in Soviet Russia.”
Other heated nonlocal discussions include a discussion of ex-VP Dick Cheney’s current ideological dust-up with the Obama administration and a wealth of amusing animated videos on national topics from “Hamwood County, NC”-based sketch-comedy act TVPigs.
And if you’re looking for a fun variety of other active topics this week, just check out this selection: The Horrific Music Thread, which examines music no one should be listening to; the still-progressing Choose Your Own Adventure thread, in which our heroes have just escaped a foul dungeon and are now on the run; an appeal for a “Serious Business” subforum for people who don’t like the casual tone of the MX forums. And that’s just a small sampling of what’s been happening this week.
