    CHIVE

    I can't be the only one who thinks that the Chive thing and website is stupid. Am I missing the point here, It looks like a bunch of bro humor and frat boy antics? Feel free to correct me I dont mind being proven wrong.

    Re: CHIVE

    I'm not/wasn't a frat boy, and don't consider myself a "bro", but I still think a lot of the content there is hilarious. Not to mention oodles & oodles of hot, scantily clad women...

    To each their own dudes. If you don't like it, don't go there? No reason to have an internet standoff about it.

    Re: CHIVE

    I have a feeling the coolness of Chive is nearing an end (not that I'm wishing this). When not many people knew about this site it was "cool" to be a part of. Now it seems you can't go anywhere without seeing a t-shirt, hat, bumper sticker, etc with "Stay Calm...". Our culture will soon turn on this and it will by My Spaced.

    A) A lot of the pictures are user submissions

    B) As far as the t-shirts & meet ups go, I think they're meant to bring together people with similar interests/senses of humor.

    Different (obviously), but somewhat similar to an ISU recruiting party. We all wear ISU shirts & get together to talk about a common interest.

    I'm not saying it's some elaborate exclusive club or anything. Still, I won't sit here & mock you for having a different sense of humor than me.

    Re: CHIVE

    This is about the only funny video I can find:

    http://thechive.com/2012/11/01/when-...obref=obinsite


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.
