Fwiw I'm actually sitting here testing that out, laughing at nothing, and I've decided it's best described as an "I'm being a vaguely derisive arsehole" laugh. It's still difficult to do without smiling a bit though.

Honestly that's 75% of the reason I'm still here. For the weird thread derailments.

Sometimes when I'm alone I like to suddenly fixate on some random corner of the room, and then proclaim something like "I know you're watching," as if there were some sort of hidden camera there.  If there IS someone there spying on me, I'll totally freak them the hell out!  But if there isn't... nobody's gonna know, so no harm done.  Either way, I win!

Close. 20% maybe. The remaining 5%, I can't tell you or I'd have to kill you. (That makes me sound interesting and mysterious, right?)

I hope you weren't wrong and somewhere there are hours' worth of footage of this.

I sincerely have no life, holy fuck. Enjoy a recording of me doing the laugh-without-smiling thing.

Randomity is often the best amusement 😆 I remember when I was more active on another forum where off-topic was strictly forbidden but people did it anyway so the poor admins constantly had their hands full of work 🙈

Haha yeah, well I guess we're encouraged not to do it here as well.

 

Personally, if someone can't or won't derail a thread with me, I probably don't like them. I don't like externally-imposed rules and I don't much like people who insist on following them. -_-
 

I wonder if one could get a warning if they tried to intentionally derail multiple threads? Not gonna try to find out, though. I'm sitting in that happy place of only one active warning and don't much want a second one and a two-week suspension.

You've just made me realise the one commonality between me and all my friends xD

I definitely believe it, haha. Mild shit stirring via derailment is an appealing quality. :P

Yeah. I mean, I know why you're not supposed to stray too far off topic, it makes sense, but I enjoy the social nature of the forums. It's different than talking to people privately, obvs. I don't have the social energy to maintain too many one-on-one connections, so that's an incredibly low number of people... like, two maybe?... but I enjoy the forum chatter for different reasons. And yeah, discussion happens.

Same, and same.  I get it that someone asking a question may not be interested in the stream-of-consciousness activity that leads in a completely different direction, but I also enjoy the conversational “oh, that reminds me of ____” that tends to stray farther and farther off-topic.

So a bit rebellious, I guess? :P Well, you could always save yourself by bringing it back to the subject. "I connect with people while spontaneously derailing threads..." :D

Via chat, internet.

 

I'm extremely introverted. :P

For me, I connect to others functionally and to an extent verbally.

 

I'm very introverted though, so I don't often talk a lot, unless it's important or an engaging conversation.
