    That John wort thread cracked me up. I keep searching for more and more threads like these in the post waspinat0r pinside that we currently live in.

    Im going to nominate the "Imamaculate" Baywatch FS thread. A thread for any "doofus"

    Man attempts to start a conversation about pinball finance that dissolves into a brick in a box and proof of existence:

    I'll nominate a series of threads.

    The Otaku Collection. It chronicles the sad flamout of an enthusiastic collector who was a little too big for his own breeches and burned a few too many bridges along the way.

    Awful first experience with PBR, any good alternatives? = https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/awful-first-experience-with-pbr-any-good-alternatives

    Surprised so many people send in nice BGs to be printed over, sad = https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-sad-side-of-bgresto

    SOS in NJ - Help needed after flood = https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/sos-in-nj-help-needed-after-flood/

    PSA: Come on people... Down with Napatha, up with Novus 2! = https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/psa-come-on-people-down-with-napatha-up-with-novus-2

    Otaku's 'ULTIMATE ELECTRO-MECHANICAL GUIDE' & EM THEORY OF OPERATION! = https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/otakus-ultimate-electro-mechanical-guide-em-theory-of-operation

    -----

    Otaku took his show on the road, to KLOV, and a reprise of the Pinside performance took place. I've included a KLOV thread as I think crazylevi is at his outlaw best when he posted there. Otaku changed his name to "Interlock" on KLOV if you are following along.

    Is this how Otaku acted here? = https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/is-this-how-he-acted-here

    Lou Ferrigno needs your help, but don’t make him angry. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry:

    I'd like to throw this one in for another one of the Best of Pinside Threads.
    It captures many of the entertaining and somewhat insightful topics here on Pinside Forum.
    Great Pinsider Mudflaps created it about 5 years ago, it still comes up periodically and has been favorited by over 100 Pinsiders.
    Yes, it is true that it doesn't give enough credit to all the great technical info and helpful solutions to problems that arise with pinball machines, but perhaps that needs its own thread topic.

    I have to bump this again, the thread was great when it was originally listed here...but if you have not checked out the last week or so you have really missed some of the most creative postings ever seen on pinside...

    This will be Pinside thread of the year. It has transcended the "JD is a $1400 game folks" influence. I'm blown away how much we are seeing "imamaculate" on Pinside now. Many avatars have been changed, gifs out the ass, and more alien faces than an X-Files marathon. In some ways, this thread has changed Pinside for good.

    #170 1 year ago

    Agreed. We’re in Star Wars kid territory now.

    It's a word on urban dictionary now because of that thread. Lol

    At 37 pages..no frickin way.. i read the first few pages and can't be bothered. I believe he's trolling you boys!

    #173 1 year ago

    This is such a good thread. I've read through a bunch of them during the course of my nightshift @ work.

    The pinslut thread had me in stiches, LOL.

    Keep posting threads!! I enjoy reading these gems.

    Post #142

    Quoted from Pinball-is-great:

    This one below probably set some records for # posts per hour, but actually appears to have a decent resolution agreed upon at this point imho.
    However, the actual final transaction still needs to be completed of a restored 1978 Bally Playboy pinball machine.
    Hopefully the inspection, payment, load-up, and delivery goes smoothly.
    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/orangecountypinballcom-daniel-buenrostro-tries-to-steal-my-machine
    p.s. trying to sell a machine on Facebook and Ebay that you don't own is not a good idea, especially when the owner notices this, and starts a thread on Pinside Forum about it.

    The Homepin TBAG threads because the amount of backflips contained within would leave a circus clown envious.

    For those completely lacking in hindsight, 2014 must seem like so long ago now -

    “We are not mucking about here, we’re building a serious factory capable of producing a hundred machines a week,”.

    “We actually have five other machines in the works."

    “We’ll also be OEMing for two other companies as well."

    Wow. That dude found his own self destruct button and mashed it.

    #197 1 year ago

    He’s one of the small group of chest-thumping “real men” crew. I wouldn’t be sad if he left.

    Amazing collaboration on a new Pinball book is ill received by the pinball community. Then the accusations fly!
