Ok, as it is nearly 2006, we must all have a say on what was your favourite discussion of the year. My vote goes to Moon Man's 'I will prove the Moon landings were fake!'

My reasons? It was without a doubt the most passionate thread with more hits in a short space of time than any other. It was funny, loads of people got told off by the moderators, and Moon Man proved only one thing. That he had no grasp of any of the scientific facts of the Apollo missions! He also managed to get himself banned then reinstated then banned again. What a total star!!

Great fun, roll on 2006. Now, what thread gets your vote?

I'd probably have to agree. I was out of town while that one was raging, but read through it fairly recently.

I'm not sure I could bring myself to vote for that trainwreck. It goes against the intended spirit of the board.

Let me think about it and I'll get back to you.

ToSeek's flying object thread was a good one (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php?t=36178)

Meteor, clouds and domes (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php?t=35281) by jscotti in Astrophotography. Iím still amazed at such a mind blowing photo.

Seconded! Thanks for bringing that up Candy, indeed one of the best images ever.

Perhaps we could have a thread for topic of the year and another one for picture of the year.

gah - it's only 21:00 and I thought the title of this thread was *bathroom* threads of the year. Coffee. I need coffee.

I HATE coffee.

I think the thread I most enjoyed was the nuclear power thread

And I want a copy of that photo. Swap for one of my fave Locomotive shots (Challenger northbound near my home, passing through a crossing) - http://www.sibko.com/ look at Erik's Gallery. I like 42, 61, 94 (the one I like most), 107, 110 and 112

I really should talk to Matt about putting the 2004 and 2005 pics up

Here (http://www.bautforum.com/showpost.php?p=598061&postcount=10) is my favorite response. Short and to the point...

Oh yes! Happy days. Whilst I agree with Moose to a point, I must say some of the arguing that went on was hilarious. In fact Moon Man's thread beat the 'official' fake landings thread for posts in a week. Mainly because we are all so passionate on the subject.

I also enjoy the photography thread.

Another fun thread that I find worthy of consideration was the "big book o' Darth names" thread. (In fact, if Darth Yarr is who I think he is, it's directly responsible for someone's screen name.)
