I've got this idea from another forum. It isn't really doing well there, so I wanned to see if BAUT would do better...





Okay, so the rules are simple. Every post should sound as if it was a reply to one of posts below, so the whole thing would look like reversed thread. Quotes are fine, but don't abuse it ;)
I am going to let you explain what a hell was that about, and then this thread is over.

Where did you get this idea from? It seems like an intersting one.

The world is set up in the way that even if you don't really know what are you asking, there might be a simple answer to it.

No, no, and no, I'm not helping snowcelt to do his homework. He didn't even asked, in the first place.

I've heard it referenced before. If I recall, the term they use is 'thread excavation'.

Have you heard that threads like these are typically called "reversetipation"?

I think The Two Ronnies, did a funny sketch of this 'reverse'tipation, quite successfully. In one of their programmes.
Oh, more than two plus years ago....

It was in the same genre as Mastermind. But answering questions in reverse(!).
...
can't find a link/reminder of it...
anyway, here's another funny one, funniest, they'd put together. A classic.

I can't hear it (public browser/library), but I think that's the one in reverse...
