Ok, I get that there will be a lot of potential opinions here but does anyone else find that SUF has too much “cheese”??
I don’t mind jokes and fun but using the program for just over 2 months I find some of the humor very dry and actually annoying. All the “shredded chamois”, “laser goats”, “holy water”, “lava”, etc. just becomes a bit boring and too much on the “high school humor” side.
Also, the videos could be vaaaaaaaastly improved if underneath the music we could hear the actual “race” sounds as right now the video’s have a really detached feeling.
No rant from me. Everyone has their own opinion. I love the SUF humour and the whole history and culture of Sufferlandria. To me it’s the humour that keeps me from taking myself too seriously and, unlike you, I find it motivating. I guess I embrace my inner teenager. On Facebook, the Suffferlandria page is one of the most supportive and helpful communities on the internet, and I’ve found the Forums so far, to be equally so. I’m about to take part in my 6th Tour of Sufferlandria, the greatest grand tour of a mythical nation in the whole wide world so consider me to have taken the blue pill, or the red one, I can never remember. This is about as close to a rant as you’ll get from me on this topic.
Personally, I like the humour, and haven’t found that it’s got old yet. I can understand that it’s not for everyone though.
Regarding the race sounds, I’ve never felt that it was missing. I think if there was sound from the race, as well as the music, there would be too much going on on the audio side. I like the soundtracks, and I think they work well in combination with the video footage.
I guess it’s horses for courses and laser goats for couchlandrians! Personally I don’t mind the cheese at all. I guess it’s a bit like the music, if you don’t like it the app lets you play your own, just like it lets you lose the storyline and even play your own vid.
Plus the seriousness of the science completely outweighs any cheesiness in the humor. Just my opinion though!!
How easy it is to start a flame war on this post. But NO, no flame wars among Sufferlandrians. Just solid some advice on how to get rid of the things @bikealotbot doesn’t like and acknowledgement of the fact that everyone is entitled for his/her own opinion.
Got I love to be a Sufferlandrian, and that I may be part of this community!
PS: There can never be enough cheese, for I’m dutch
