125. Love These Threads
Not for the reason the OP suggested but they're fun regardless.

You get the aggitator types. Usually the ones leading the charge from the rear or the ones suggesting that we must all rise up and damn having an actual plan. As long as we're doing something and taking actions things are going to change. Now, I don't want to sound like protest doesn't work. Sometimes it does. But it needs to have an end game. So the call to arms (as it were) of "Take To The Streets" doesn't really mean anything, but it's good for getting a bunch of recs on DU.

Next you get the holier than thou types. The ones who chastise other people for doing things they find distasteful, like watching American Idol or eating a jelly donut instead of takin' to the streets! It's always a fun collection of folks willing to bash what other people are doing instead of Takin' to the f'ing streets! Pro-Tip: If you're posting on DU, even to dump on people who are not TAKIN' IT TO THE STREETS! sufficiently for you, you're also probably not in the steeets. So if you're sitting at home or at the office dogging out people for watching reruns of The Simpsons and not TAKIN' IT TO THE FUCKING STREETS! then you're probably a jackass.

Lastly, I'll usually get so see some of my favorite DU'ers poking fun at the rabble rousers yelling about TAKIN' IT TO THE MOTHER FUCKING SKREETS! and next thing you know, it's 5:00 PM EST and time for me to pack up and go home.

So here's to you random "Takin' it to the streets" thread. You never fail to satisfy.
