"It's all minis"

I hate hearing that. They are different hobbies. It's like car collecting. Some collect Hot Wheels and others collect real cars. Yes they both involve cars but they are different hobbies.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo John the OFM Supporting Member of TMP says:

Are you ever taken aback by the text of the first post in a thread that makes assumptions that surprise you? The OP is assuming that his way is the only way, and all you can say is "Not exactly". Not a real earth shaking topic, but just mildly amusing.

Poll set up by Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian, based on this pre-poll discussion.
