    Not you WW.

    Wtftardation I thought Brandon was a highschooler.

    The older you are the more you fail…

  5.  

    It’s more complex than that, CB. Here is a graph comparing age to frequency of fail, showing the results of an anonymous survey of more than ten-thousand Americans.

    Notice the spike at 21 years, the age when people enter bars, allowing a whole new range of failure possibilities.

  6.  

    iF YOU POST ON II, THE OLDER YOU ARE THE MORE YOU FAIL.

  7.  

    W00t! Thanx Devin. I’m right in the bottom-most valley. Still got a few more years left…

  8.  

    Wow, Nate, you’re like ten years older than everyone else! (And I thought they were just joking when they termed you the grumpy old man of the office!)

    @CB: If my suspicions are correct, according to your theory (if you post on II, the older you are the more you fail), then you’re a pretty damn big failure.

  17.  

    Call me naive, but why does it matter if you’re older and post on II? I would think that it’s worse to be young and have no life (like me) than be old and have no life.

  18.  

    Come on, this is the one place where I can actually be immature!

  19.  

    Spanny, remember the words C.S. Lewis:

    Critics who treat “adult” as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adults themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence…. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty, I read them openly. When I became a man, I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

    Speaking of CS Lewis, he also said that the stupidest children are the ones who are most childish, and it is the stupidest grown ups who are most grown up.

    Lol, what swenson proposed barely constitutes as stalking.

    Running an ip tracker into their computer to find out when and where they go on the internet is only the next step up. From the tracker you can find their login information to whatever sites they use. And you don’t even have to be directly connected to their network. If anyone has read Neal Stephensons Cryptonomicon you’ll know what I mean.

    Yeah, that isn’t really particularly stalker-ish, as it’s extremely easy and public to do. And… it’s not even like it narrows it down to your house or anything, just a general area. My IP address, for example, shows up as being in a city twenty minutes away from me. Still is good for freaking out n00bs, though, especially when you’ve got mod/admin powers on a forum and thus can see everyone’s IP addresses.

  36.

    Swenson is welcome to try. Though I remind you I’m from the south where everyone owns weapons so… be careful who’s house you just happen to approach.

    Swenson, Michigan isn’t very Yank, you should know that. I’m disappointed if I meet anyone west of the Mississippi not packing. Still, I’m glad that someone will be able to check my bullet & gun research. (always been more of a blade man myself)

    I’ve heard some horror stories from “yankee” friends about how hard it is sometimes to get a gun. And I don’t mean usual restrictions either. I mean challenges that would make Frodo go, “That’s too much of an ordeal.”

    I’m a conservative who tends to support Republicans more than Democrats, although usually I sit back and whinge endlessly (and pointlessly) about both sides, not really caring much about politics other than to snicker at others once I set them off.

    Anywho.

    On guns: my Canadian friend was like “...NO WAY!!!” when he came over here and found there was a gun and knife show going on. He loves the US now, because it’s a lot harder to get heavy weaponry over there! (he buys insane amounts of paintball equipment here- it’s cheaper and easier than getting it in Canada, apparently)

    I agree with this.

    I’m an independent who leans toward the conservative side in most things. But I don’t agree with any of the parties in their entirety. All politicians are liars anyway. They tell the people what they want to hear to get elected, and then they do whatever they want once they are, which is usually not what they promised the moronic majority that they would do. Then after a few months of that, they start preparing for re-election. I hate politics.

  51.  

    @ Swenson- isn’t it good if it’s harder to get weapons in Canada? Oh, paintball. Never mind. I thought you meant real guns. Guns scare me, just a bit.

    Politicswise, I’m really not into it much, but I’m pretty liberal socially. (I did say I was from MA, didn’t I? XD)
