#45 - I'm older than you, and I'm in a better college than you'll ever get into. Yes, I play World of Warcraft, but that doesn't mean I'm a loser or I don't have a social life. Maybe you're the one who needs to grow up and stop judging people over the internet just based on their hobbies and a stupid picture, k?
"I'm older than you, and I'm in a better college than you'll ever get into." I'm going to have to second 45 here with the "grow up" statement. You're telling them not to judge when you just made a judgment about where they will go to school. I'm curious to know what school you go to. Also, if you really think that being older than someone makes you better, you're a fool. Experience makes you better, but age isn't a guarantee for that.
Yeah I'm guilty of judging people based on their looks as well. Damn it, looks like I'm human too. I got to UPenn. Not the greatest school ever, but it's up there. And why is everyone on my back? What did I do to gravely offend each of you? I think you people need to relax and not be so damn serious over the internet.
gulf, Renisca, and boatkicker: If bARbi3 doesn't bother to comment in literate English, that's her choice and her right; I don't really care. But to be fair, she can't get pissed when people assume she isn't intelligent. Likewise, gulf can post any picture he wants, but when he posts a nerdy one, he should know people will assume he's a nerd. It's just a matter of how you portray yourself. I think gulf got too defensive, but he just did what we all do-- made an assumption based on how bARbi3 was portraying herself. She admitted to doing it earlier too. It's the internet; EVERYONE makes snap judgements based on things like pictures and grammar.
bARbi3: That's why I said it's your choice-- you don't have to type like you're in class. But since FML attracts an older group of people as well, you *will* be judged on your grammar. In adult circles we (or at least, people like myself) judge our peers on grammar etc. more often-- for example, if a plumber doesn't take the extra few minutes to proofread his ad, knowing that this is the only contact he'll have with thousands of potential clients, do I really want him working on my house? Maybe he'll rush through that too and miss something important. It's just a little filter that you use more often as you age, and it becomes habit. If you just want to have fun here and goof off, type however you want. If you want to be taken a little more seriously in the discussions that develop, use better spelling and grammar. That's just how the world works.
I have to admit I thought that was actually gulf in the dp. I was wondering what age he went to uni since the pic is stamped 2008 and he looks extremely young. But then, I am literally a cartoon angel so I believe everything. For the record, I agree with boatkicker and IrishJaneDoe in this rather pathetic and unnecessarily instigated battle. Nerds are hot. Spelling will count towards your grade. I too am bored on a Sunday...kthxbai.
I play hockey, usually center, but I'm a decent left wing as well. My buddy and I got invited to play in the Swiss league a few months back, we would have done it because the experience is amazing, but the pay isn't enough to get us to both leave school and our jobs.. The league isn't like super good or anything, it just would have been a lot of fun.. I play football too, when the games/practices interfere with each other I usually go for football since the season is shorter and has less games.. I play wide receiver mostly, but I'd jump out as a free safety if our starter got hurt/tired.. I'm actually better than him at it, but my team didn't have anyone who could really play the Y receiver so that's what they wanted me to do haha... I'll probably be stopping football though, the hockey games are more flexible, so I can jump into other teams if they're short and invite me, or skip a game if I'm working or busy... Meh, love playing though, it's a blast. Last night I was on fire too, every time I shot the puck it seemed to go in. Also, I didn't really like hockey for a while because I didn't follow them.. But once I got into it, I fell in love with the sport. It's awesome.
julezbby, Love the rack and love the iPhone. You just keep on posting those downshirts -- there are a lot of dirty, old geeks out here that love 'em. You don't know how hard it is to find Apple-themed porn. Especially with attractive girls! You can imagine that video of nerdy guys who are endowed poorly enough to get it on with a SuperDrive are singularly unimpressive and creepy.
haha omg, you sometimes see some really pathetic people on here, but this is just one of the best. please kill yourself OP, you obviously make the world better place by doing that
You probably annoy them. Try pretending to be bothered by them for a while. Play hard to get. They will come around.
This sounds like you're exaggerating to get sympathy. If people were changing their status to avoid you, they would know it doesn't usually work. Annoying people do not respect busy statuses. Your friends would just block you.
