    A Brief History of Overreactions,...

    ...Instant Gratification, and Unrealistic Expectations.

    You could write a book w/ material from this site. Don't get me wrong- I love CF. It's the best place to get ISU information. But it always reminds me that people need to put things into perspective, take deep breaths, step away and go play w/ their kids or other.

    Whether its a loss we shouldn't have, a win that wasn't expected, a lost recruit, or any subject matter in the "cave," you will find both fantastic exaggerations and disgusting cynicism.

    ...It also reminds me of how much people love this University.

    You'll have that with all the inside info.

    Makes me wonder what people did before the internet? Where did people meltdown at?


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Awesome Post! I couldn't agree more. Logical thinking, patience and respect seem to be MIA in a lot of peoples posts around here lately. Some people just won't be happy with anything - whether they know it or not.

    Once upon a time, there was a magical place called a "bar".

    At this "bar," many Rabbis, Priests, and three legged dogs would congregate...
