Just thought it'd be a good idea to make a thread dedicated to the awesomeness that is The Pit. There's a lot of bashing of this forum, but personally I find it to be amazing. So many different people from all over the world sharing different points of view and bringing to light things that people from another country wouldn't have heard about.

I'm very appreciative of the pit for a few things.
1) General fitness and exercise thread. The people in there taught me a lot about working out and being healthy.
2) Sex/relationship threads. Helped me be a better lover
3) I can't rely on myself to find all the awesome things in life. The Pit has helped me discover some of my favourite bands, my favourite movies, and my favourite books.
4) Most importantly I've discovered what I want to do with my life...maybe not solely because of the pit, but it certainly helped. A user on here (DorkusMalorkus I believe) recommended I read Cosmos by Carl Sagan. I hadn't heard of Mr. Sagan before that, but I got the book and loved it. Because of that book, I started getting into astronomy and eventually realized I wanted to be an astrophysicist. Pretty cool.

There's definitely more reasons I love the pit, but that's a start.

How about you?

Q: OK, so do you care about the labels — nastiest, edgiest team in the NFL?

Jim Schwartz: It's better than the alternative — meekest, least aggressive, softest team in the NFL.

It gives me someone to talk to all day.

It's a funny place.

Idk, I don't really know how to put it into words but... idk. I love The Pit.

You do know that there are girls (such as myself) that use The Pit, right?

To be honest, I have no clue why I come here. This is possibly the least productive thing I could do with my time... but I enjoy it, I guess.

It's actually really interesting. Good talks.

I've learned a lot through lurking debate threads and without the pit I wouldn't have heard of 85% of the bands I listen to.

Great place to vent, especially the Hugging Thread. Also, there are a lot of really funny people on here. I just come here for the lols and the venting.

Whenever I ask you all what music you think I'd like, I always find a song, or a band that i just fall in love with.
Actually listening to Modest Mouse right now, thanks to a thread the other day.
Thanks, Pit.

I really need to argue so the pit gives me that catharsis when it veers into debate.

I have learned an insanely huge amount from the users in the politics and religion/philosophy threads.

I like it because there are some really nice/cool people on here, its a good way to waste time when I'm at work, its funny, and its a good way to learn about new bands that I otherwise would not have found.
#14
Everyone in the pit is my friend. Granted I have no friends in real life, but the pit does well.
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant

The Pit is entertainment. It is a community of (relatively) musically savvy people who are pretty fun all around.

Oh, and TS, I'm going to study Astrophysics as well ^^.
My signature lacks content. It is, however, blue.
#24
I think one reason I can appreciate it is because a lot of the Pit users are very similar to me. It's mostly teenagers and young adults who play guitar, like similar music as I do, hell even a lot of pit users have the same awkward social lives as I do! It's a place where you can find epic lulz, learn things through heated debates and relate to other people will similar musical interests.

Sorry to burst your bubble, bud... *cough*
Anyway.
It amuses me, it gives me a place to vent (thank you, sound off thread), occasionally good for advice , and there are some damn cool people on here that I enjoy talking to.
Begin again in the night, let's sway again tonight.
Your arm on my shoulder, your cheek against mine.
Where can we go, when will we find that, we know.
