This question was asked today by the lovely <b>Theia</b><br><br><br>
I have a logistical question. I know this has been suggested before, but I'm bringing it up again. Does anyone like the idea of TWO daily threads? One strictly for running reports and advice, and the other for all the (more) fun stuff. That way, legitimate running questions and accomplishments won't get lost in all the other fun stuff we end up talking about every day. A lot of people have mentioned that it's hard to keep up with the thread, and I agree. If I don't have time to check in early, I don't even bother because I can't get through all those posts at once when we're at multiple pages.<br><br>
Thoughts<br><br>
Do we keep it as it is, or do we make two specific threads?

I already mentioned it in the daily thread, but I vote for separate threads. We really aren't a running thread any longer and, for me, that's why I'm here.

I've thought about this for quite some time now, because I also have a hard time keeping up, and I'm personally more into the running support than life support side of the thread.<br><br>
We could definitely try it. Don't cost nuthin'.

I also vote for two separate threads. Back on CR, one thread as a part of the Newbie forum made sense. Now that we've got this whole forum as our playground, why not take advantage of that?<br><br>
As a practical matter, being 3 hours behind the Right Coast (at least until standard time kicks in for the rest of the country again), even if I get here early I'm often looking at 6 pages before I can post. If I get here later, I just can't get through 10, at least until after work, when I'm most likely to feel social anyways.<br><br>
Just my $0.02

<b>Nettie</b>, I was going to do exactly that, but I never get here early enough to be first. It seemed weird to start a thread when there was already a thread that had both running and non-running info in it, so I just asked the question instead. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

I voted for 2. I felt I at least had a chance of contributing when the discussions were running related.

I voted for two. sometimes I feel like talking about running, sometimes you don't. But when you want to talk about running, it's kinda hard to sift through the chatter.<br><br>
The marathon training thread that pacer started over in the race report forum is all about running and training and racing. Kinda cool!

'Bloody peasant!'<br><br>
[thud]<br>
[King Arthur music]<br>
[thud thud thud]<br>
[King Arthur music stops]<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Old woman!<br>
DENNIS:<br>
Man!<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Man. Sorry. What knight lives in that castle over there?<br>
DENNIS:<br>
I'm thirty-seven.<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
I-- what?<br>
DENNIS:<br>
I'm thirty-seven. I'm not old.<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Well, I can't just call you 'Man'.<br>
DENNIS:<br>
Well, you could say 'Dennis'.<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Well, I didn't know you were called 'Dennis'.<br>
DENNIS:<br>
Well, you didn't bother to find out, did you?<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
I did say 'sorry' about the 'old woman', but from the behind you looked--<br>
DENNIS:<br>
What I object to is that you automatically treat me like an inferior!<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Well, I am King!<br>
DENNIS:<br>
Oh, King, eh, very nice. And how d'you get that, eh? By exploiting the workers! By 'anging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society. If there's ever going to be any progress with the--<br>
WOMAN:<br>
Dennis, there's some lovely filth down here. Oh! How d'you do?<br><img alt="" src="http://www.mwscomp.com/movies/grail/inlines/03_peasn.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
ARTHUR:<br>
How do you do, good lady? I am Arthur, King of the Britons. Who's castle is that?<br>
WOMAN:<br>
King of the who?<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
The Britons.<br>
WOMAN:<br>
Who are the Britons?<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Well, we all are. We are all Britons, and I am your king.<br>
WOMAN:<br>
I didn't know we had a king. <b>I thought we were an autonomous collective</b>.<br>
DENNIS:<br>
You're fooling yourself. We're living in a dictatorship: a self-perpetuating autocracy in which the working classes--<br>
WOMAN:<br>
Oh, there you go bringing class into it again.<br>
DENNIS:<br>
That's what it's all about. If only people would hear of--<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Please! Please, good people. I am in haste. Who lives in that castle?<br>
WOMAN:<br>
No one lives there.<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Then who is your lord?<br>
WOMAN:<br>
We don't have a lord.<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
What?<br>
DENNIS:<br>
I told you. We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week,...<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Yes.<br>
DENNIS:<br>
...but all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting...<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Yes, I see.<br>
DENNIS:<br>
...by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs,...<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Be quiet!<br>
DENNIS:<br>
...but by a two-thirds majority in the case of more major--<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!<br>
WOMAN:<br>
Order, eh? Who does he think he is? Heh.<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
I am your king!<br>
WOMAN:<br>
Well, I didn't vote for you.<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
You don't vote for kings.<br>
WOMAN:<br>
Well, how did you become King, then?<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
The Lady of the Lake,...<br>
[angels sing]<br>
...her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur.<br>
[singing stops]<br>
That is why I am your king!<br>
DENNIS:<br>
Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Be quiet!<br>
DENNIS:<br>
Well, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Shut up!<br>
DENNIS:<br>
I mean, if I went 'round saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Shut up, will you? Shut up!<br><img alt="" src="http://www.mwscomp.com/movies/grail/inlines/03_denni.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
DENNIS:<br>
Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system.<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Shut up!<br>
DENNIS:<br>
Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help! Help! I'm being repressed!<br>
ARTHUR:<br>
Bloody peasant!<br>
DENNIS:<br>
Oh, what a give-away. Did you hear that? Did you hear that, eh? That's what I'm on about. Did you see him repressing me? You saw it, didn't you?
