Is it me or are most of the noob's odd?

I mean by this, no intro, no preliminary posts, just a first post asking for help and arguing/disregarding your response and wanting immediate solution - or even asking for a part and then balking about the price to pull it and the postage, do they think everything is like amazon.com?

I am not even bothering to answer first posts anymore - or am i just being a old grumpy $%^& head?

Trip....

I guess I haven't payed too much attention. Kind of po'd to see that these are on a "hipster top 10 list". Like I want to be labeled as one of them dummies. Already got tards that think I'm a hippy because of the hair...

I don't see a problem with a first post looking for help.

Your other points I agree with.

Careful there Trip, you gain curmudgeon status like this lol.
But seriously guys like us have seen the same sometimes unrealistic questions asked over and over again. It is sometimes hard not be extremely direct which is taken poorly by the asker. And they will argue with you about it.
Ideas like part time tcase kits should gain 6 mpg, or a 700r4 doing the same, and of course they will pay for themselves in the first 6 mos.

Just part of being our Dad's now I guess.

I still consider myself a noob since I have only had a FSJ for about 2 years. I see folks on here with 8 posts but they have been members for the last 10 years.

I haven't seen too much arguing or disregarding (but maybe I am the one you are speaking of ). I do get bummed when I see a noob post a tech question, we answer, and we never get closure. Did it work? did you try it? What does your rig look like?

Luckily I don't have a Grand Wagoneer: I have a Cherokee; you've probably never heard of it. It's SOoooo much better than a Grand Wagoneer. mm mmm mmm.... (spoken in my best hipster/condescending voice)

Funny story, #7 Volkswagen Type 3 Fastback; I had a 64 Volkswagen Type 3 Notchback. Loved it. Wrecked it. Miss it.

So I have sort of had 2 of those vehicles. I give you all license to round house kick me in the throat if I buy ANY of those other "cars" on that list.

Ah, ah, ah, the Citroen Ami... hipster!... it was such a low powered, cigarette thin sheetmetal, not too sure where you can get one, not even in its country of origin... the oposite of the volvo in term of the hunck factor.
The saab... welcome to the world of failing head gasket and electrical gremlins... fun to drive, I was a alternate driver on some outings, the turbo is really fun, but not the maintenance

As for the noob questions... yes, always the same questions... nobody is using the power of search engine, too lazy I guess, then who needs the TSM...

They probably are hipsters. Let's see some traits of the millenial generation:

1. The most financially strapped generation since the one that grew up in the depression, meaning they are frugal tight a$$es. Their jeep needing a $300 part means they ether default on their student loan payment for the month or just don't eat. They're going to be upset when a Jeep part is expensive because many of them are lucky to make $12/hr.

2. The most highly educated (formal education) generation yet and very politically active, but are treated by older generations like they are dumba$$ pussies who can't be bothered to look up from their phone. They've learned to avoid talking to older people because older people often have nothing but rude comments to say to them, like calling them little snowflakes. They will come onto the forum, ask their question, and leave as soon as possible to avoid the BS. There is enough BS in their world without adding yours to it.

3. They are a generation that doesn't believe the things they are told unless they can verify it for themselves. They have grown up in an era where they are constantly inundated by information both true and false (internet), and so must verify an opinion or claim before they trust it. That pisses off older people who think young people should automatically trust the words of their elders 100% as a sign of respect, but millenials do not mean it as disrespect. They simply treat all sources fairly and objectively. They will take in your opinion and weigh it against many others. The fact that they even asked you is a sign of respect, because once again: millenials tend to avoid people older than them.

Notchback? Cool. I think I've only seen one in person.

Shame on you for wrecking it.

I'm a noob here, but far from a noob on car forums. I've been on several other car forums, one since the Internet was a baby.
I may never have many posts as I read the previous posts by using the search function first when I have a question, you know do a little research. It bothers me on the other forums when people ask a question that's been asked a thousand times without searching first.
I've been here a year, lurking in the background mostly. When I do have a question I can't find an answer to, I'll look to those who've around awhile and can help me out. It does help to close it out with a photo or a thank you.
Finally, one thing I've noticed on my other forums is that some members tend to use the forums for information on their restoration or repair projects and then move on. New people come in and it starts all over again. That's the nature of Internet forums.

do you mean "wouldn't be liking these goofy rigs"

People find me odd for liking these Jeeps, and all the other old cars I like. They find me odd for not liking new cars very much. and Many of the other odd things I personally like, one of which are vintage tube electronics...

Hey FSJunkie, I believe there were "hipsters" before this so called millennial generation. Its not some new thing just with them.

It seems that some people are just hit and run types. Get what they want and leave, and don't bother with the actual community.

I do find it odd though(i havnt seen much of it here) with people asking something, and arguing about the answers.

I have some AM and AM/FM table top radios and alarm clock radios ranging from 4-6 tubes each. One of them is brand new and still in box, unused except for my testing. I bought it for $5 at an estate sale.

My crown jewel of tube equipment is my 1965 Sansui vacuum tube receiver. 19 tubes and weighs 45 pounds. I keep it set up in my living room with some other old stereo equipment. I have other receivers but they're solid state. They blow away the old Sansui for performance, but having a tube receiver is a neat novelty.

I like buying vintage electronics, appliances, etc. and fixing/restoring them. I've done radios, stereo amps and receivers, turntables, cassette decks, 8-track players, car radios, car clocks, household clocks, vacuum cleaners, toasters, fans, and of course cars.

Still trying to figure out a way to make money at it because I hate conventional jobs. haha

I think people asking seemingly redundant questions are ok. Most people are using search engines and end up here. Lets face it Full size Jeeps can be had on the cheap. The newer generation is into instant gratification and so they ask questions and then try to figure out how to apply the answer. They buy a FSJ and usually end up taking it to a mechanic with his ob11 reader. $$$$$ dollars later with no fix they end up here.
