Sorry to threadjack.

Well normal meaning those who don't like to bother other people by asking pointless questions when they can find out the answer by reading a few pages. I feel that this is normal courtesy.

Of course your definition of normal could be those who are too lazy to read threads(or make an attempt to) and post questions already answered. It can get quite irritating sometimes.

Or your definition of normal could be what the vast majority are doing, of which not reading threads could be one of them.

You don't have to put yourself down(or up) either. Don't understand what you are trying to say. Nothing against you either.

The explicit explanation of my post above is this:
1) Read threads or at least some of it before posting
2) It may seem normal to not read threads but it is NOT.
3) Don't cultivate that bad habit just because everyone else is doing it.
4) No need to be so surprised and invoke GOD just because you think he read the whole thread.

TO-5 can size is 9mm so it would not fit into a TO-18 5.6mm slot. Perhaps the barrel could be modified slightly to fit your TO-5 diode.

Wow! I often feel this way sometimes. It's not a personal attack on one person or another just an observation and common courtesy

No the 9mm diodes won't fit in these. Now if you have the means of drilling out the barrel diode insertion point i'm sure it will fit.

THerefore, conforming with or constituting a norm or standard or level or type or social norm; not abnormal;

so, do you concider not reading through 18 pages "abnormal"? I certainly do not. Yet I do not concider it normal TO SOME EXTENT

To not read a thread at least a little and to post would be spamming, and therefore abnormal. Yet happenening to rad what is in the middle of 18 pages, that is not abnormal, nor is it a common normality. Out of the 6K ppl on this forum, give me a % of people who read ENTIRE threads before posting...

regards,

amk

Default Re: GB laser barrels

Ok. You win. I didn't read through all that stuff you posted. Did you?

But I did read the first few parts and read the end and also skimmed through the various definitions of normal and (quite abnormally) went to look for the source of the stuff you posted.

http://au.answers.yahoo.com/answers2...4091507AAfAmI9
scroll a little down the comments to find the expanded version of what amkdeath posted.

The first and most commonly used definition from your list goes:

conforming with or constituting a norm or standard or level or type or social norm

The context in which we used the word is regarding whether it is normal to read threads before posting. You seemed to have implied that many people do not do so and hence it is considered normal to not do so.

I say the social norm should be the case where people DO take the time to read most of the thread. If this is not the case with society nowadays, I find it somewhat sad BUT would still consider it normal if someone reads through all 18 pages. At least it is not abnormal behavior in any sense.

Maybe take a curve of how many pages people read in an 18 page thread, the median might be between say 5-10 pages. So anyone within this range is normal. But of those who read all 18 pages and those who read only 1 page, should they both be considered abnormal?

Social norms should dictate that those who read all 18 pages are still normal and all those who only read 1 page are not acting in a manner befitting of a normal civilised person.

No matter what the percentage of people who read all 18 pages are. It would still not be considered abnormal to have read all 18 pages. It is normal TO ALL EXTENTS in my book. It's not like it is 100 over pages and would take a few hours to read. You read a few pages from the front, a few pages fron the back and if you are interested enough, you will find the time to read/skim through the whole thing. It really doesn't take very long unless you are the sort who has to read every single word and punctuation.

I believe at least 25% of the people who follow this thread have looked through all 18 pages. What kind of statistic do you want to be?

Look at it this way. Which side of a mathematical definition of normal do you want to be on? Would you rather have an IQ of 147 or have an IQ of 88?

nice...

and LOL "you win"? I thought we were having a freindly argument (lol that doesnt sound right). I always enjoy a good argument, as long as I learn from it.

Moral of the story (to ppl who did not bother to read our argument ERHMN ERHMN COUGH COUGH)
- There are many defenitions of an opinion, which is what makes it an opinion, if not, it would be a fact. Also, peoples opinions do not change very often (this second sentance is also an opinion LOL). So, WHAT IS YOUR OPINION?!?!? --> http://www.laserpointerforums.com/fo...m=1197259545/0

I think we actually agree on the same thing. Mainly that it is normal for most people not to have read the whole thread and also not abnormal to have read all 18 pages but abnormal to have read only 1 page. So there is no reason at all for this.

The "you win" comment was because i was very amused by you posting all those definitions and forcing me to skip through most of it. And also not to extend this friendly argument further.

Back to your regularly scheduled GB laser barrel updates
