    Default What Do You Think Would Happen. . . .

    . . . .if everyone on COTH were to meet in one large room?

    Think about it. So many of us like/love posters; vehemently hate others. If we were all to meet in person, what do you thing would happen.

    I personally know that while on COTH I've seriously butted heads with people, I still think that meeting in person we'd get along. Anyone else feel this way?

    Would there be food, drinks and other assorted snacks in this room?

    Everyone on CoTH? I honestly think there would be a few deaths. But for the most part people would probably get along.

    Pretty sure we'd split into groups of like-minded individuals. We wouldn't be as rude as we are hiding behind keyboards.

    I think that a lot of people would be nicer if they couldn't hide behind the anonymity of a username and if they had to speak to each other face to face. Also, tone and inflection doesn't always come across well online, so I do wonder if a lot of people here would get along better when they could actually talk to each other in person. So much is lost without seeing expressions and body language. Personally, I'm pretty laid back and get along with almost everybody I meet until they give me a strong reason not to. I don't know that we'd all necessarily get along, but hopefully there would be a better sense of understanding.

    Just kidding. I haven't really butted heads with anyone I can remember on this board, so I'd be okay.

    To eat, or to throw?

    Hugs or fisticuffs, depending on the COTHer(s).

    And there would *have* to be alcohol...

    Would we have name tags? 'Cause if we didn't, it would be like meeting people you ride against every week--but you'd never recognize them without a helmet. I vote for name tags, wine or microbrews (and margaritas for twotrudoc and her minions ), and umpires with cattle prods to separate anyone who brings up natural horsemanship and slaughter alongside politics!

    Could there be juiceboxes for those of us who aren't old enough to drink?
    If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
    If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
    If I smell like manure, I tripped.

    Ah, geez, Dottie--the least we could do for the under-21 crowd is whip up some of Twotru's virgin margaritas or a Shirley Temple/Roy Rogers--that way the wicked members who know how to tie cherry stems in a knot with their tongues could teach you guys...valuable tool in college...er...nevermind...

    I think in person some folks would be VERY different.

    Still I think it would be a lot of fun!
