I look in from time to time but never see anything to look at! Mind you, I have noticed even the Magic Cafe postings have dropped off drastically too unless I am imagining it. I detest Facebook but that does seem to be where the action is.

That's been the situation for quite some time, I too am very wary of FB but that's probably because I'm an old fogey! Over the years we've seen the surge in discussion boards like TM and then the way social media has taken over. I just wonder what the next stage will be?

Life does get in the way at times....

"Life! Don't talk to me about life. I've been on my own here a long time and I got very bored and depressed, The first ten million years were the worst and the second ten million years, they were the worst too. The third ten million years I didn't enjoy at all. After that I went into a bit of a decline"

"and then of course I've got this terrible pain in all the diodes down my left hand side..."

:D

I check in to several forums every morning, including this one. Hi.

I'm a newbie here so I don't know whether content has dropped off. However, as Mark points out, even The Tragic Cafe appears to have less people posting than I have seen for years.

Come to think of it, that's probably a good thing, given the utter dross repeatedly discussed over at that place, such as.....

What's BEST - red or blue backed cards?
What are the BEST tricks from....(add the name from a variety of sources)?
What are your BEST Top 10 Card Tricks?
What is the BEST DL?
What is the BEST ambitious card routine?
What is the BEST book to start with (cue the automatons recommending bloody Erdnase!)?
What is the BEST pile of garbage to purchase via pre-order, that isn't even going to work properly?
What is your BEST example of being conned by a video clip to purchase a trick, that then bears no resemblance to the actual effect in the real world whatsoever?

OK I made the last two up! :wink:

However, I did once read a fascinating discussion about the reason playing cards warped during a flight on an aircraft. Shortly thereafter, I slowly began to lose the will to live.

No surprise really that the busiest section over there is 'Latest & Greatest' - wherein people discuss the most recent miracle that is going to springboard them into overnight stardom. Or they prattle on about the most recent trick released during that particular hour - these days often involving a Rubiks Cube, a Sharpie, or indeed the most recent brainfart in gimmicked wallets.

As for Facebook. Thanks......but no thanks. I'm convinced that godforesaken thing is designed to dumb down society and transform people into either brainwashed, knuckle-dragging neanderthals or gibbering simpletons. Then again, The Tragic Cafe has similarly been achieving that goal for the past couple of decades.

I occasionally make intelligent comments at the Cafe. They almost always get ignored.
