I guess it's the Queensryche with the current line up.
I could have deleted your post if you had requested it via IM/PM. :P
Naah, too much trouble.

I suppose but you know that I have too much spare time. :P

Surely there's gotta be a point where it can no longer expand.
Scientists are sure that it will start to collapse at some point in the furute. But AFAIK, it's still expanding right now.

Yeah, it'll reach its limit but that's not anywhere near close. There'll be that grim part of the future of the universe but that's nothing for us to worry about. Still, I'm curious as to how things will look like by that point.

Fair point to that. Earth can't be that special planet that some sci-fi shows/films try to make it out to be. A bit silly for me to say that since I love Futurama a lot and they like to centre around Earth a lot and then you have Doctor Who where the majority of Earth-based events as well as the companions are located in Britain.
Well, I think the viewers want to see at least something they can recognize. Or maybe it was just because they wanted to save some money when they first started the show. So they used locations based in Britain.

Doctor Who is notable for low budgeting but in the modern era, the BBC can just fund the show as much as desired.

The one thing that always annoyed me in Star Treck was, that extraterestials ALWAYS looked the same and had the same character traits. Klingons are always agressvie, Ferengies are always sneaky, etc. Just humans might have had some different character traits within the same race...

Keep in mind that I never watched Star Trek, although it's probably something I'll go through somewhere down the line. Maybe when I'm 30 or so.

And it's still a place that's easy to get to from point A to point B without so much worry about traffic? I suppose Philip J. Fry had a point when he claimed no-one drove since there was too much traffic. :P
Well, if there's really much traffic and you are stuck in a traffic jam, then you have all the time in the world to figure out where you have to turn to reach your goal. :P

I'd rather avoid traffic. Although, work will make that difficult to do whenever I am doing something again.

If there was one thing school never tried to teach me in Geography, it was learning all the states of America.
I don't think it's really that important to know the states of the USA when you are not living there in the first place. I know the federal states of Germany, and that's good enough for me. But I do know more US states than I know federal states of England, haha.

Well, they could have taught me the counties of England better then. Most of my life, the only counties that I recognised were Merseyside, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Greater London and Cornwall. I'll have to teach myself all the counties in England. Fuck being educated in bad schools.

I don't expect instant changes to the portal but at least get some of the ongoing problems fixed already!
Exactly. Hell, just fix one thing per month (or, try fixing it at the very least). Then we could see some changes...

Now that would get things rolling a bit. They work how many hours a week? There has to be enough time...

The only exception I would ever agree is that the account was compromised.
I don't mind Coop asking (hey, you can always try), but I think it was the wrong decision from Tom to grant that wish.

I suppose I should give Coop credit for just giving it a shot. Some of the times I find myself bounded by barriers so I don't approach to certain things. I really need to just go ahead with it whatever I may get in return.

Thankfully I have a phone now so the only times where I'll really need someone to deposit for me is if I ever go outside the UK. Use of internet on phones in foreign countries can be screwy so it's best not taking the risks, unless reliable Wi-Fi can be provided.
If you have an Android phone, you could always use the Tethering mode so the phone acts as an Wi-Fi spot. I did that with my wife's phone when we where on Amrum and the Wi-Fi at our home didn't work. But again, I would only do that in my home country and not in foreign countries, since your provider might charge you extra for that...

Yeah, I try to be careful with that. I had one warning from my provider saying that I was close to the limit before it started charging me. I try to connect to free Wi-Fi whenever I can.

Well, hopefully. Less and less people are using the internet on computers and more and more it becomes phone/table-based which neither are adaptable for Newgrounds for the main sections of the site.
While I can see the advantage of a Smartphone with internet access when you are out, I still can't see myself only using a device with such a small screen and limited storage space. Hell, where would I store all the football matches I downloaded? I have 217GB of various football matches on my external drive. ^^

Even my phone is horribly limited on storage space. It's to the point where I struggle with just updating the Twitter or Facebook apps. Really annoying when it does that. The main ones like them and YouTube are on the internal memory and are some of the most used apps so the least I ask for is to manage with more than enough storage space for them.

Ah well. To be honest, I much prefer your communication here than you doing some reviews.
Yeah, the replies in the LUL are my top priority. I try to do them each day. ;)

I'm slipping here and there. Most of yesterday I wasted my time on Tumblr. At least I'm finding new people over there. I came across a female dragon lover from Britain on there today so I'm happy to be finding good things on Tumblr.

If a girl wants to be treated like a possession, they're asking out the wrong guy. Some men actually want to be nice to the one they love.
I never believed in that "you have to be an asshole to get a girl" theory anyway. Or that stuff that some self claimed "Pick up artists" write about, is just a hughe pile of crap, imo. How about this one: Just be yourself. If the girl doesn't like you for who and what you are, then she's just not the right girl for you...

I hate to be an asshole so it's a theory I don't buy into either. I'm not all that fond of pick up lines myself. You might say a funny joke or get a woman's attention but what about your personality and interests? When it comes to finding someone, I'm always going to look at personality and interests before their looks. I'll admit that their appearance does have some factor into whether I want the woman or not but that's really a small percentage. I'd be all fine if they were above average in weight but there does have to be a line drawn somewhere with one's looks.

The timing of when to arrive and leave a party is only natural. It's understandable why you two would be together in those cases.
Also, there's not much we can do about anyway. We live together, so it would be silly, if one stayed behing while the other already went to the party, heh.

Unless you really wanted to stay behind for something or either of you felt a bit under the weather during the night.

It always sounds so simple, saying something like this. I've been there, done that and I know from my friends' experiences that no doesn't always mean no - sometimes you have to come back and ask again later.

If they said they weren't up for a relationship at the time, that's fair enough. Originally the one who I was with said she was going to stay single for a while after experiences with her break up at the time. Despite what she had said, one thing simply lead to another between us. We were just talking a lot at the time and I said that it would be cool to hang out with her to make her feel better with her friends. The Saturday that it all happened was the start of each other showing our affections and then the following Wednesday it was the faithful day where she asked me out.

You'd think people would try and get something arranged prior to Valentine's Day. The timing with my last relationship was more than convenient for it since when we got together it was only two weeks until it was Valentine's Day so we just gave each other a little something but nothing over the top as it was too soon. Just being together for that day was the most I was going to ask for, although Thursdays were the best days to see each other due to her college timetable. It was a very brief period but it was good while it lasted. Some good times are better than none.
Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved, nes pas?

Yeah, I keep telling myself that. Granted, I just hope I'm not going to be alone for the rest of my life but at least I had a few good weeks dedicating my time to someone out there.

There's some reasonably strong statements to them and it's something to follow. I just gotta do things if I want something to happen. Now if only I could have better luck with getting a job.
Basically, you need to go out there and make it happen. Smile more (without looking like a lunatic) and try to have a positive outlook on life. It works.
The one mitigating circumstance with that was that I was beta testing the site for him and when it launched, it fell over almost 5 seconds in. I could have given Bahamut the password to access my account and deposit, but as I have Review Mod tools and he does not, that is a "what goes on tour, stays on tour" rule violation.

True, it's fine for you to deposit for me since the mod tools I have are considered lesser than review modding but the other way round it doesn't work. This is why Auz is a more ideal depositer for me since our modding duties are similar.

Ok, then take Star Wars instead. "Many Bothans died...". So, are the Bothans a "race of master spies"? How should that work out? Who would hire a bothan chef, for example? It's clear that he's a spy...

although it's probably something I'll go through somewhere down the line. Maybe when I'm 30 or so.

Just stay away from Deep Space 9. :P

I'd rather avoid traffic. Although, work will make that difficult to do whenever I am doing something again.

Maybe I will get to work by bike once it gets a bit warmer. It's about 15km, so it's possible to cycle that distance in one hour.

The main ones like them and YouTube are on the internal memory and are some of the most used apps so the least I ask for is to manage with more than enough storage space for them.

There are even people that say that the end of the PC is near. Because of Tablets and Smartphones, blabla. I doubt these people ever really WORKED with a PC. Can you imagine typing a letter on a tablet touch screen? Or what about Software Developers? I work as a Software Developer right now and I NEED a second screen! With only one screen, you'd go crazy switching between programs...

Exactly. "Good looks" are of course important. At least when you first get to know a person. But I made the experience that character is far more important. I think I've told this before, but I had it happen to me that I met a girl who I thought looked good. But when I got to know her a bit better I realized that she's just a dumb-ass... and after a while I simply didn't find her attractive anymore. And I've had the opposite happen to me as well.

Maybe you guys will get back together at some point down the road if you stay in touch, who knows?

Happy 3,000 pages to the Level Up Lounge! I only wish happier topics could be talked about around here but that's how things go.

At least something's still being talked about here... :\

I'll be going to the rock bar with my sister on Friday,

Any more karaoke? I want video evidence of you doing Gangnam Style. (Preferably while intoxicated.) 0:D

Last week I was trying to see if I could buy one of the latest games. I suppose with the saved money now I could potentially get one of them, particularly Tomb Raider. However, if my parents do go ahead with the trip to Spain then I'll need to save up a bit.

New video games are cool, though a trip to Spain sounds better. Hell, I haven't traveled anywhere long-distance in years... I think the last time was the trip to the Bahamas I took with my mom, back in the late 90's. I always wanted to see New Zealand, ever since seeing the Lord of the Rings movies. Damn, now THAT would be a hike! :P

I'm sure I've said my opinion on having kids already but I'll go ahead and explain my views in better detail. I generally don't have a definite yes or a definite no for having kids. While I can see that my cousin can be obnoxious, I was certainly no better when I was his age and raising a kid is certainly one of the biggest challenges in life. Somewhere down the road I could have a kid of my own and I'd have to raise him/her if me and my love partner made the commitment to reproduce.

I almost feel like at some point I'll want to have a kid. (Do guys have an biological clock? lol) But it just feels like a long, long way off, and doesn't feel as if it's getting any closer. (Makes no sense, I know.) While I don't enjoy the company of children, the bottom line is I'm sure I'd feel differently, if it was my own child I was looking at, not just some random person's screaming little whelp. ^^ The future holds what it holds, though -just gotta wait and see.

Oh, and there may be that debate about whether it's fine to have sex before marriage or not but after the relationship I had, there's absolutely no way I can be a preachy kind of person on the whole matter.

Never really understood the whole issue with premarital sex, but then again, I'm not a religious person, so... In my experience, we waited for at least 6 months into the relationship before beginning to explore that "area". lol Honestly, I'm glad we did wait until we knew each other well, as it made it so much more meaningful.

It's another thing I was fence sitting about when thinking about relationships but it was never a huge no or a huge yes. I just had to see how things went at first.

Like I said, it's not something that should be rushed into (even though it's a VERY easy thing to rush into.) ;P But if those involved really care about/respect each other and take the proper precautions, I don't see why you need to be married to enjoy that aspect of a relationship. I mean, I know I wouldn't be expecting my future wife to be a virgin in her late 20's/early 30's...

Hell, I could tell myself that I wasn't such a great kisser at first but I did get the hang of it all just before the turning point. Just shows what I was like before 2013. :P

Ha! See, it was a learning experience in more than one way! ;)

Hopefully the idea will be implemented. The hexalist adapts to the inclusion of medals well so I can't see why it can't be added for NG Log's total stat listings.

Yeah, I said as much to her. I've seen no change as of yet, but I assume she's probably busy, and these things take time, I'm sure.

EXP updates show that he can miss them half of the time. He's easily letting more and more users pass him at this rate. I can't say how he'll be in a few years time. Then again, maybe I can't say for myself how my deposit habits will be. I'm still going to keep up with my main account but the alts I'm ready to let them rest.

Well, if I pass him, then you know he's either dead or lost his internet connection. lol

Yeah, the more that are leaving us the deader this place is going to become. It's sad to think of it this way but I think the LUL is on its last legs.

;_; I'd like to think that so long as there are users who give a damn about stats on this website, this thread will continue on to some extent. While it's probably true that the LUL's glory days are behind, I could never see this thread falling off the first page and vanishing into obscurity. NG will truly be in a sorry state when that happens, whether those in charge of this site realize it or not. ;)

I'll still deposit my main and I'll check on my few favourite threads on here.

This of course being one of your favorite threads, right?

And now I've agreed to myself on a new thing to do on a regular basis. It won't be daily as I should probably do but a walk from home all the way into town is one way to get a bit of exercise.

Hey, that is a start, for sure. You don't need to kill yourself to have an effective cardio workout -even just walking at a brisk pace for a significant amount of time can do the trick. I don't know if you have any scenic areas around where you live, but I'd suggest looking for some trails to walk and maybe even get one of those stepometers so you can set goals for yourself. Just a thought! :P

Why not save some pennies while I'm at it!

Saving some money is a nice bonus, for sure.

I could have sworn a small group of friends of mine were going to attempt a weekly trip to the gym. Not sure if it's still going ahead or not, though.

The gym would be your best bet, in terms of versatility, though I honestly prefer to train at home. Sticking to a healthy diet and doing calisthenics (exercises that use body weight for resistance -ie. push-ups (or press-ups), sit-ups and squats are all good.) They're ideal, as you don't need any equipment to get started.

I can't even remember the last time I played any sport activity, especially since leaving school and no longer being forced into PE lessons which were always the worst of school, especially with what kind of teachers they were.

Yeah, PE wasn't my favorite, either. I was thrilled when my school came up with the alternative, "Personal Fitness" which was basically just a bunch of stretching/walking around the gym/track for 45 minutes with a bunch of attractive, young girls. :D Sure, I got ragged on for that one, but hey, I sure was cool with it! :P

I suppose. Her Tumblr is acknowledge by many of her friends and she was the one that actually brought me on there just because she had to make a post about me. Since then I'm stuck on there and while I've wanted to drift away from there, it can be hard to leave when you see funny shit like this.

I don't approve of abusing Metallica albums. >:( Well, if he was taking a hammer to Load and Re-load, then maybe I wouldn't object. But Master and Ride the Lightning? BLASPHEMER! :P

I've had some nasty shit said to me on this site and I don't want others to be hurt like that as well.

I'm sorry to hear that. I can honestly say that I've never made any true enemies on this site. (There have been several over the years that didn't like, but I managed to keep it to myself.)

Plus, if there's anyone attempting to add me that I know are trolls, I won't even accept their friend add.

I've had a few users try to add me that I had never even so much as seen around on the BBS. I mean, what's up with that? I have to at least recall having one decent conversation or interaction of some kind with a user before I add them to my friends list, you know?

None of my friends are BBS posters. Well, one did make a post or two here but that's it.

Now that I think of it, I actually did get another efriend from a Zelda fan group to make an account here, though he never stuck around for more than a day or two. Too bad. :(

They were more for the flash animations which is actually what you're meant to be fucking doing if you're on Newgrounds. :P A few of them are familiar with the whole incident with Sirtom, though and one even liked Dickneck.

Yeah, my friends at school going on NG for the flash content was what got me into the site originally. Nobody besides myself seemed interested in making an account, though, for some reason. Did the Sirtom incident get much media attention over there? If I wasn't around on NG when that all happened I probably wouldn't even have heard about it. lol

I used to talk shit against bronies but I don't even have that right anymore. First it was because I officially made myself part of the furry fandom and signed up to FurAffinity, then it was myself watching through an entire MLP parody series on YouTube because of my ex constantly spewing jokes from it and lastly, the pony cosplay that I agreed to and went to a fancy dress party as.

Pony cosplay? If you weren't so awesome I would be thinking less of you right now. :P

unless they're the sick fucks who have sexual fantasies over them. Keep in mind internet, a pony is a child form of a horse...

I thought that was an essential part of bronydom for most? Though I am ignorant to the subject, I must confess.

But yeah, the internet made My Little Pony a cool thing to like and it wouldn't have been possible in a million years had it not been otherwise.

True. I don't think something like that would have been able to originate in the physical world.

The name alone should give you a hint.

Yeah, it does. And I don't want to know anything more beyond the image my mind has conjured up. :P

I could talk trash about the anime part of it all day long due to horrendous writing and cliches. Come to think about it, if I was to ever watch either of them, it would only be from the abridged parodies.

The writing was pretty terrible, I wont disagree there. But who watches DBZ for the writing, anyway? That show was 100% about the action; the plot was more like a necessary afterthought that just got recycled every saga. lol I'd say watch everything from the Sayian Saga through the Cell Games -after that it kinda starts losing it, if you ask me. Oh, and the movies are damn terrible, don't even bother with them.

You could be considered the most attractive woman in the whole wide world but if you can't get along with my major interests, then I have no desire to love a person like that.

Certainly not love, but maybe some other things, perhaps. ;)

I used to think I was asking too much from a love partner but a few simple things like that, it can't be that bad and surely there's plenty out there that fit under that criteria.

It's certainly possible. That's why I suggest looking to find social groups that match some of your interests, as your bound to find like minded people there. Just finding a girl in day to day life seems like trying to find a needle in a haystack, but being lucky enough to find one that's like you? Damn, you need the internet for that shit. :P

I actually feared that if I ended the relationship with her, she wouldn't even want to see me again and it would cause problems with seeing those that we both know. Thankfully that hasn't been the case and we're still in speaking terms. As said before, she's handled the break up much better than the last few.

Yeah, the fallout of a relationship (or the creation of one for that matter) can sometimes cause some collateral damage. Looks like you lucked out.

Roommates are never something I've had to worry about but then again, being stuck with parents even at the age of 22 isn't so grand either but what can I do about it?

It's tough out there these days, for sure. Hopefully you'll be able to land a good enough job to support yourself. If not, hey, there's always roommates. ;)

The funny thing is, I actually tried to invite them all to my 18th birthday. It wasn't a problem for the teachers to be there but those old friends, only three managed to show up.

You invited your teachers? Not a chance I would do a thing like that. :P

Some I could possibly chase up on Facebook but it's been over a decade since they last saw me and I'd be amazed if they could recognise me now. Compare me to when I was 9 years old, it's a major difference.

That's really cool that some did show up, though. It must have been a really cool experience to see those people after such a long time.

It's really bad when they have to be immature and make homophobic comments. Even if you two were gay, what's their fucking business? Schools

can be hit and miss with how they handle those that get ridiculed with such comments but in this modern age there better be a zero tolerance policy on homophobia.

I wouldn't even have called it homophobia, as I never felt any sort of hate from those kids. They were just incredibly immature/bored, I guess. I guess they just felt like pestering us because we were really close friends and weren't part of their "cool" clique. (The funny thing is, our friendship eventually came to an end when a girl came between us!) LOL

I have a fair amount of friends who are either gay or bisexual so if anyone has to make nasty comments over those sexual orientations, I'm gonna have a sick taste in my throat. These words are from a straight guy and I will not have any friendship ruined just because one has a different sexual preference to mine. I'll admit that heterosexuality is dominant in my family and it's hard to think of a single person who may have different preference but at the end of the day, we're all human so no-one should be treating one less over a trivial matter.

I feel the same way. I mean, who cares where you stick your prick? It's a personal matter that shouldn't even concern anyone who's not involved, anyway.

Hah, I can do all the burning with my own throat. Amazing, isn't it? Too bad I'm not doing it as often as I'd like. :P

Maybe you can use some of that time you're not updating stat lists and go on a rampage or two? :P

It's probably bad that I still have a grudge against her over that even to this day but if you're meant to be the management for those with disabilities of any kind and that's how you feel was right to treat someone who was under stress, you have no fucking idea what you're doing with your job and you should have been fired. If this ever happens to my child, there'd be a shitstorm for sure.

I'd still hold a grudge, too, if it were me. Hell, that seems like one of those memories that would be tough to forget. :\

If we're still cool with each other despite the events, I can't see why we can't. It might be a while before I see her in person, though but when we do I'm sure we'll enjoy seeing each other again.

Sometimes I think about how much it sucks that I'll most likely never see a lot of the people from my past again. (Exes, old school friends or what have you.) That's why I'm happy it worked out the way it did for you guys. :)

I don't think I know anyone who'd be up for hiking but then again, those that I know aren't generally the going somewhere kind. Most they'll be doing is getting drunk and shit at parties.

lol! Well, that's a constructive hobby, I guess... 0.o

And here I wonder what happened if I took the other path in the fork and got myself addicted to World of Warcraft instead of making flash animations.

Why, you would have met an enchanting night elf and lived happily ever after in Warcraft land, of course! (Probably could have done more with that, if I actually knew anything about Warcraft.) lol

There was a certain point in my life when I could have been addicted to WoW but I managed to get out of it while I was ahead. Could I have met someone on there just like what happened to my sister?

God, I'm kinda glad I never got into WoW. You see, I have an addictive personality when it comes to nerdy stuff like that. (b/p'ing on NG is an excellent example.) It probably would have consumed my life to the point where I was reduced to a basement-dwelling goblin, living off Doritos and Mountain Dew who's only source of light is a computer screen. XD Hell, I don't even want to think how many hours I've spent playing Skyrim, and that's just a one player game! I also probably would have loved D&D; too bad I never knew anybody who was into it.

This kind of alternative reality is possible in a parallel universe somewhere. Yes, I'm the kind of fool that believes in sci-fi mumbo jumbo as that. ;D Anything is possible, you know?

The Multiverse is no joke, my friend. :P There is a Bahamut who played WoW and doesn't even have a Newgrounds account. And there's another who has an vast collection of Easy Listening music and loathes metal! lmao

Speaking of dating sites, I have been looking into them lately. I know I was cynical because it doesn't take much to pretend to be someone but you know what, it doesn't hurt to try. It's kinda like searching for a job on the internet. Chances are most of them are non-existent anyway but either you sit there and do nothing and earn nothing at all as a result OR, you could actually try and approach them and see what happens. The worst that would happen is hearing nothing in return or them simply saying they're not all that interested in you. The latter might be bad to hear but if they know so little about you anyway, it won't be such a huge loss. Just try again and find someone else.

That's the way you need to look at it, I think. I mean, you're odds of finding a relationship online are way better then if you don't make any effort at all. Seems like most dating sites ask for specific turn-ons/turn-offs, so you should be able to find someone you click with, though it'll probably take a bit of trial and error -just stick with it! :P

You know, I've always feared that by attempting to talk to women and see if I could ask them out, I'd only be seen as some stalker or a sex predator but if you're gonna advertise yourself on dating websites and you're looking for a partner of whatever gender, clearly there's no stalking there if all you're gonna do is try and talk to them.

I've often felt the same thing, especially when there's no easy opening to spark up a conversation without sounding awkward or like a total creep. XD

A recent strong statement to myself is if I don't ask, I simply don't get. I just gotta make these attempts and see if they would be willing to see me. Sure, despite finding them on DATING SITES, I'm not expecting to go on a date straight away but we have to get to know each other first.

It's the quickest way to get yourself out there, and hey, at least you know everyone on there is looking for a date and doesn't already have a damn boyfriend. (Or at least you hope they don't.) :P

What I'd like to do first is talk to them a bit and see how things progress. Generally I'd like to see that we can speak to each other on Facebook for general contacts and Skype to have a video chat somewhere down the line. Video chat is easily the best way to prove that they're legit.

Yeah, strangely enough, I always thought talking online (even just using IM, or something) served as a good way to "break the ice" with people, albeit on a pretty superficial level. Though I suppose when you're talking about a potential date, some kind of video chat would be required, as you said.

So yeah, online dating shouldn't be all that bad. I may not have much experience with it right now but it can't be all that bad. If I keep looking out, who knows what an amazing individual I can find!

Good luck, and feel free to let us know how your endeavors turn out. :)

She seems to want to steal them and then go back home. D:

Well, that's just shallow. :P

Well, I may end up making my activity minimal but I'll have to check here every so often.

It's always a good place to chat every once in a while, even if you aren't super active overall.

I keep meaning to retire them at milestones but it's a matter of if I feel like keeping it going now.

How many are you still depositing for these days? You could always just focus on depositing for the couple that are near and dear to you. ;)

Seriously, I don't even know how I've managed to handle all of this. I thought just having to kiss her would have got me nervous but it didn't. I thought going out on a date would have had me anxious but I wasn't and while I had to deal with a downhill slope of the relationship and had me depressed for some of the time, there has yet to be a time where I've had myself crying. I even kept telling myself, "Don't worry a thing, just cry already. You're only human after all." It's not that I don't have any human emotions because if I didn't, why would I be sad over losing her? Maybe things were gradually going downhill as opposed to a sudden stop so perhaps I slowly dealt with my feelings that way, or maybe I just knew some things had to be done and I had to take my own actions. Even my mum is amazed how I've dealt with everything here and she of all people would have seen all the worst of me on the outside.

Like I said before, things seemed to happen quite fast, so maybe it was a case of just being in emotional shock over the whole experience? I would almost say that it didn't last long enough to set you up for a proper, full-blown heart break. (Which is a good thing.) ;)

Five posts... Only got away because I'm a mod. :P

I've just got to keep mine condensed. :P

I guess a PM is too much effort. :P

Yeah, it'll reach its limit but that's not anywhere near close. There'll be that grim part of the future of the universe but that's nothing for us to worry about. Still, I'm curious as to how things will look like by that point.
We won't live long enough to find out. :(

And yet we keep wondering the fate of the universe. We should already worry what the world will be like in a few decades time. Who knows what they can do to maintain life?

Doctor Who is notable for low budgeting but in the modern era, the BBC can just fund the show as much as desired.
But that would mean changes to a successful series. Not always a good idea.

Considering the revival, some changes are acceptable. Although, some of the designs of classic monsters like Zygons and Ice Warriors as recently revealed show to have a retro feel to them which I think works. I didn't mind the modernizing of the enemies as others did but giving them a classic feel works as well.

Keep in mind that I never watched Star Trek,
Ok, then take Star Wars instead. "Many Bothans died...". So, are the Bothans a "race of master spies"? How should that work out? Who would hire a bothan chef, for example? It's clear that he's a spy...

Actually, Star Wars is a good one. Earth isn't even acknowledged in the stories, unless it is somewhere beyond the films.

Well, if there's really much traffic and you are stuck in a traffic jam, then you have all the time in the world to figure out where you have to turn to reach your goal. :P
I'd rather avoid traffic. Although, work will make that difficult to do whenever I am doing something again.
Maybe I will get to work by bike once it gets a bit warmer. It's about 15km, so it's possible to cycle that distance in one hour.

I'd cycle to places but I should first see if my bike can work again. Then again, I much prefer to walk and bringing my bike over to Liverpool and back can be a bit of a task.

Well, they could have taught me the counties of England better then. Most of my life, the only counties that I recognised were Merseyside, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Greater London and Cornwall. I'll have to teach myself all the counties in England. Fuck being educated in bad schools.
Never herd of Merseyside before. And I only know Cheshire because of a certain cat (and I think there's a Square by that name in Los Angeles).

Merseyside is the county I live in, although Wirral can be considered a county of its own. It's generally used over Merseyside for county on address forms.

Even my phone is horribly limited on storage space. It's to the point where I struggle with just updating the Twitter or Facebook apps. Really annoying when it does that. The main ones like them and YouTube are on the internal memory and are some of the most used apps so the least I ask for is to manage with more than enough storage space for them.
There are even people that say that the end of the PC is near. Because of Tablets and Smartphones, blabla. I doubt these people ever really WORKED with a PC. Can you imagine typing a letter on a tablet touch screen? Or what about Software Developers? I work as a Software Developer right now and I NEED a second screen! With only one screen, you'd go crazy switching between programs...

If desktops are dying, how do you explain the Steam community? Many will still play games on standard computers, although I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere down the line they start trying out adapting tablet games on there.

I'm slipping here and there. Most of yesterday I wasted my time on Tumblr. At least I'm finding new people over there. I came across a female dragon lover from Britain on there today so I'm happy to be finding good things on Tumblr.
Never used Tumblr... :/

I'm becoming an addict now. It can be seen as pointless like Twitter but with it I have found some good stuff and a few interesting people. Hopefully I can find more likeminded individuals to me. What I do like using Tumblr for a lot is archiving animated GIFs. I find good ones on there and save it to my laptop as well as reblogging them. I'm also posting the GIFs I have and/or recently made due to needing them, such as some Monty Python. Why I haven't found the old ladies applause on the internet is beyond me so I sorted that out myself.

I hate to be an asshole so it's a theory I don't buy into either. I'm not all that fond of pick up lines myself. You might say a funny joke or get a woman's attention but what about your personality and interests? When it comes to finding someone, I'm always going to look at personality and interests before their looks. I'll admit that their appearance does have some factor into whether I want the woman or not but that's really a small percentage. I'd be all fine if they were above average in weight but there does have to be a line drawn somewhere with one's looks.
Exactly. "Good looks" are of course important. At least when you first get to know a person. But I made the experience that character is far more important. I think I've told this before, but I had it happen to me that I met a girl who I thought looked good. But when I got to know her a bit better I realized that she's just a dumb-ass... and after a while I simply didn't find her attractive anymore. And I've had the opposite happen to me as well.

I'm just glad I'm not blindly looking into any woman. I can see myself as somewhat desperate when I'm single but I know who to not date based on their personality if it does not match me at all. You may be a good looking person but how are you personally? I just gotta be sure we have some good common interests before I can even consider taking someone on for a date. My last partner was both great in terms of personality and looks, contrary to what she might say about herself. It was a great match for sure but... well, you know the final outcome by now. We knew each other well enough about our interests so we did have something between us at the time.

I love that album. Some of the tunes in there are great for helping me down the motorway to work and back.

I like the album as a whole. It's still 5-star material to me. I thought with development of my musical interests would put them behind but they're still good to go back to, unlike Korn...

I suppose I should give Coop credit for just giving it a shot. Some of the times I find myself bounded by barriers so I don't approach to certain things. I really need to just go ahead with it whatever I may get in return.
Like I said, I was fed up of people getting what I wouldn't have said that I deserved, so I just tried the same.

You know what, if I feel like that for anything (well, almost), I'll just see what happens if I try asking. Again, if you don't ask, you don't get but avoid that at inappropriate times.

Yep, it feels nice to show affection for someone and to receive it back.

And I still look back at it and think, "You know what, someone out there did have an enjoyable time with me, even if it was briefly."

Maybe you guys will get back together at some point down the road if you stay in touch, who knows?

I'd be lying if I said it hasn't once crossed my mind. It's really up to her if she would like to go out with me again. She was the one that needed to take a break from things and in the end told me she couldn't be with me anymore as a result of the events that occurred. It's also a matter of her deciding when she's up for dating anyone again and that could be a while.

That said, she does want to see me again soon so when we find the best time, we'll meet again and I do look forward to it. Keep in mind that this will be the first time I'll see her in person since the break up so it will feel weird. I may end up taking the shot to see if she would take me back but I won't do it hastily so that won't happen during our next encounter. Perhaps after seeing her in person a few times I might just ask and see what happens but I'll only even dare to attempt that when I've not heard from her negative side for a while. Hearing that side of her ensures me that she is not to the self that she needs to be in.

Happy 3,000 pages to the Level Up Lounge! I only wish happier topics could be talked about around here but that's how things go.
At least something's still being talked about here... :\

And we do have different things to talk about now. Me and Haggard were wondering about the universe. :D

I'll be going to the rock bar with my sister on Friday,
Any more karaoke? I want video evidence of you doing Gangnam Style. (Preferably while intoxicated.) 0:D

At that bar, not a chance. The music will be all loud to the extreme so no chance to be singing there on mic. Also, Harlem Shake is the new thing now, not Gangnam Style. Get with the times. :P Although, I much prefer Gangnam Style as a song over Harlem Shake.

Last week I was trying to see if I could buy one of the latest games. I suppose with the saved money now I could potentially get one of them, particularly Tomb Raider. However, if my parents do go ahead with the trip to Spain then I'll need to save up a bit.
New video games are cool, though a trip to Spain sounds better. Hell, I haven't traveled anywhere long-distance in years... I think the last time was the trip to the Bahamas I took with my mom, back in the late 90's. I always wanted to see New Zealand, ever since seeing the Lord of the Rings movies. Damn, now THAT would be a hike! :P

I went ahead and picked up Tomb Raider. It's a step up from the Legend trilogy but it doesn't feel groundbreaking as the game should have tried to aim for. It can be fun for being action packed but like Resident Evil 5 and occasionally RE4, the amount of ambushes can get a bit tedious after a while. However, I like that they save the more puzzling parts for the optional tomb locations to attempt to get to the treasure. What I really didn't like the game was the horrible lack of diversity with enemies. You have wolves, you have scavengers and... nothing else until samurais later on in the game. Seriously, three different kind of enmies in the whole smegging game. What the hell is this? There were more different enemies from the first four levels of the first game alone than this. At least they did have a boss fight unlike the previous game. So yeah, not a masterpiece but it's decent for a one-time experience.

As for holidays, I'd like to do something again but again, I NEED A FUCKING JOB! I'm gonna have to pass down the trip to Spain with my parents due to money limitations. I should be going to Birmingham next month but plans haven't been confirmed yet so I may end up missing out on that. Still, for Spain I just have to see how much it will cost me. Maybe I'll get away with just a hundred or two to spend for the whole thing and it might pass that way. Otherwise, I'll have to give it a miss.

I'm sure I've said my opinion on having kids already but I'll go ahead and explain my views in better detail. I generally don't have a definite yes or a definite no for having kids. While I can see that my cousin can be obnoxious, I was certainly no better when I was his age and raising a kid is certainly one of the biggest challenges in life. Somewhere down the road I could have a kid of my own and I'd have to raise him/her if me and my love partner made the commitment to reproduce.
I almost feel like at some point I'll want to have a kid. (Do guys have an biological clock? lol) But it just feels like a long, long way off, and doesn't feel as if it's getting any closer. (Makes no sense, I know.) While I don't enjoy the company of children, the bottom line is I'm sure I'd feel differently, if it was my own child I was looking at, not just some random person's screaming little whelp. ^^ The future holds what it holds, though -just gotta wait and see.

That's just it. If you live in that more manageable part of your life, having a child is something you could consider more. Although, if my partner is dead set on not raising a kid at all, even with a house to ourselves and after marriage, that's really the final answer.

Oh, and there may be that debate about whether it's fine to have sex before marriage or not but after the relationship I had, there's absolutely no way I can be a preachy kind of person on the whole matter.
Never really understood the whole issue with premarital sex, but then again, I'm not a religious person, so... In my experience, we waited for at least 6 months into the relationship before beginning to explore that "area". lol Honestly, I'm glad we did wait until we knew each other well, as it made it so much more meaningful.

Six months sounds like a reasonable amount of time. Unfortunately with my partner, although she wanted a clean start with me, she later tried to push the idea of sex more and more and I think it got to her mind in the end. My idea from the start of the relationship wasn't even to try and get in her pants until a much later time. All I wanted to do was to enjoy ourselves and doing things together. That was my idea for the early days of the relationship. Some women think men are only after one thing, I am wanting to do much more than that with my partner in terms of activities and interest.

Hell, I could tell myself that I wasn't such a great kisser at first but I did get the hang of it all just before the turning point. Just shows what I was like before 2013. :P
Ha! See, it was a learning experience in more than one way! ;)

Yep, that's one thing that I can provide better for my next partner now that I've got hang of it. Even if I may not be able to kiss a girl for a good while, at least now I am able to do the french kiss after having my experience. As for other things I can learn from this relationship, if a girl says she needs some space, just let her give her own time. I was probably a little too hard on her when I was trying to do what I can just to see each other because I thought it might have helped her out if she did have my company. Next time I know just to give them time, although I won't want it to last for weeks on end.

Anything else, that's really about it. There were times where what I did would have resulted in a slap from the woman but considering her sexual characteristics, she was more tolerant of it as well as leading me on it. So as you can expect, when I just get her to get a feel of my ass, it did take me by surprise. :P

Hopefully the idea will be implemented. The hexalist adapts to the inclusion of medals well so I can't see why it can't be added for NG Log's total stat listings.
Yeah, I said as much to her. I've seen no change as of yet, but I assume she's probably busy, and these things take time, I'm sure.

I imagine that's the case, although I wouldn't be surprised when she can focus on it, it will be done within minutes.

EXP updates show that he can miss them half of the time. He's easily letting more and more users pass him at this rate. I can't say how he'll be in a few years time. Then again, maybe I can't say for myself how my deposit habits will be. I'm still going to keep up with my main account but the alts I'm ready to let them rest.
Well, if I pass him, then you know he's either dead or lost his internet connection. lol

Now that's looking far off. Let's just say when Coop ends up passing him, then you know he's lost an awful lot of deposits and is really slipping.

Yeah, the more that are leaving us the deader this place is going to become. It's sad to think of it this way but I think the LUL is on its last legs.
;_; I'd like to think that so long as there are users who give a damn about stats on this website, this thread will continue on to some extent. While it's probably true that the LUL's glory days are behind, I could never see this thread falling off the first page and vanishing into obscurity. NG will truly be in a sorry state when that happens, whether those in charge of this site realize it or not. ;)

It depends how much interest is left in statwhoring from the community. It certainly isn't what it was like back in the golden days. I do miss the 2005 era of Newgrounds but many have moved on. I mean, what's the site going to be like in two years time? They gotta pick up the pace here or they're really going to struggle.

I'll still deposit my main and I'll check on my few favourite threads on here.
This of course being one of your favorite threads, right?

Most definitely!

And now I've agreed to myself on a new thing to do on a regular basis. It won't be daily as I should probably do but a walk from home all the way into town is one way to get a bit of exercise.
Hey, that is a start, for sure. You don't need to kill yourself to have an effective cardio workout -even just walking at a brisk pace for a significant amount of time can do the trick. I don't know if you have any scenic areas around where you live, but I'd suggest looking for some trails to walk and maybe even get one of those stepometers so you can set goals for yourself. Just a thought! :P

Well, the area around here isn't the prettiest and the local town is a fucking dumpster. It's bad enough thinking I'm walking to there but I can't get to Liverpool without going in to Birkenhead.

Why not save some pennies while I'm at it!
Saving some money is a nice bonus, for sure.

It sure is. Sometimes I'll have to go with a day ticket but if there are times when I can get around it, that's always good for me.

I could have sworn a small group of friends of mine were going to attempt a weekly trip to the gym. Not sure if it's still going ahead or not, though.
The gym would be your best bet, in terms of versatility, though I honestly prefer to train at home. Sticking to a healthy diet and doing calisthenics (exercises that use body weight for resistance -ie. push-ups (or press-ups), sit-ups and squats are all good.) They're ideal, as you don't need any equipment to get started.

All I need is some appropriate sportswear and then I'm all set. I dunno about you but I could see it as a socialising thing as well. As for diets, I can't say I eat the most healthily but I am attempting to not eat so much so no more of those monstrous pizza burgers that I like having at the game shop and today at Subway, I went with a 6" sub instead of a foot long.

I can't even remember the last time I played any sport activity, especially since leaving school and no longer being forced into PE lessons which were always the worst of school, especially with what kind of teachers they were.
Yeah, PE wasn't my favorite, either. I was thrilled when my school came up with the alternative, "Personal Fitness" which was basically just a bunch of stretching/walking around the gym/track for 45 minutes with a bunch of attractive, young girls. :D Sure, I got ragged on for that one, but hey, I sure was cool with it! :P

Unlucky for me, the PE lessons were separated by gender. Then again, I wasn't fond of most girls in my school anyway so it wasn't much of a loss. Although, I hated the guys there a whole lot more. Either way, I wasn't happy with myself.

I suppose. Her Tumblr is acknowledge by many of her friends and she was the one that actually brought me on there just because she had to make a post about me. Since then I'm stuck on there and while I've wanted to drift away from there, it can be hard to leave when you see funny shit like this.
I don't approve of abusing Metallica albums. >:( Well, if he was taking a hammer to Load and Re-load, then maybe I wouldn't object. But Master and Ride the Lightning? BLASPHEMER! :P

Awww, sorry about that. You gotta admit that it's amusing to find Bruce Dickinson in this state. Maybe the other funny shit I find will cheer you up. These are the posts where it makes me happy to just waste my time on there and come across these to make me laugh.

I'm sorry to hear that. I can honestly say that I've never made any true enemies on this site. (There have been several over the years that didn't like, but I managed to keep it to myself.)

This isn't even for being a mod either so it predates the 2010s. I know it was years ago but some of those comments to me that I've had to read I just hope anyone I know out there doesn't have to suffer the same. No-one should be given anything vile like how one things I should be shot dead in front of family and friends. Thankfully that comment is long gone but it was never anything necessary to say. I'd have accepted a racial slur over that. The worst part is, the one that made that comment to me ended up becoming a forum mod and even to this day I still question the admins for making said individual a mod.

Plus, if there's anyone attempting to add me that I know are trolls, I won't even accept their friend add.
I've had a few users try to add me that I had never even so much as seen around on the BBS. I mean, what's up with that? I have to at least recall having one decent conversation or interaction of some kind with a user before I add them to my friends list, you know?

You mean the random adds on Newgrounds? I just accept them. It's not doing much harm to me so they can go right ahead.

None of my friends are BBS posters. Well, one did make a post or two here but that's it.
Now that I think of it, I actually did get another efriend from a Zelda fan group to make an account here, though he never stuck around for more than a day or two. Too bad. :(

And I have my metal e-friends from the Metal Hell. I think the fact that the community is more compact makes it easier to get along with them than a specialised metal forum like Metal-Archives.

They were more for the flash animations which is actually what you're meant to be fucking doing if you're on Newgrounds. :P A few of them are familiar with the whole incident with Sirtom, though and one even liked Dickneck.
Yeah, my friends at school going on NG for the flash content was what got me into the site originally. Nobody besides myself seemed interested in making an account, though, for some reason. Did the Sirtom incident get much media attention over there? If I wasn't around on NG when that all happened I probably wouldn't even have heard about it. lol

The incident with Sirtom did get on the BBC News website but it wasn't on TV. Maybe in the North East region it was mentioned but I heard nothing on TV for the local news.

I used to talk shit against bronies but I don't even have that right anymore. First it was because I officially made myself part of the furry fandom and signed up to FurAffinity, then it was myself watching through an entire MLP parody series on YouTube because of my ex constantly spewing jokes from it and lastly, the pony cosplay that I agreed to and went to a fancy dress party as.
Pony cosplay? If you weren't so awesome I would be thinking less of you right now. :P

The fact that it was a set up by her and she's not with me now should make me regret doing that but when I made the agreement, I only have myself to blame. Still, I tried to do a lot for her.

unless they're the sick fucks who have sexual fantasies over them. Keep in mind internet, a pony is a child form of a horse...
I thought that was an essential part of bronydom for most? Though I am ignorant to the subject, I must confess.

I know one guy who's a brony but utterly hates the rule 34 aspect of it. I give him respect for that. For those that actually masturbate to it, there certainly isn't something right about them. OK, so I could masturbate to dragon porn but at least it wouldn't be some child-looking dragons I'd look up.

Wait, what did I just admit to? :O
The name alone should give you a hint.
Yeah, it does. And I don't want to know anything more beyond the image my mind has conjured up. :P

And you don't. I'm just glad I know to keep a distance away from them. Some might show up at local meets but I'm still going to be weary of them. For now, I'll just find the cool individuals over on Twitter. I get my best interactions there.

I could talk trash about the anime part of it all day long due to horrendous writing and cliches. Come to think about it, if I was to ever watch either of them, it would only be from the abridged parodies.
The writing was pretty terrible, I wont disagree there. But who watches DBZ for the writing, anyway? That show was 100% about the action; the plot was more like a necessary afterthought that just got recycled every saga. lol I'd say watch everything from the Sayian Saga through the Cell Games -after that it kinda starts losing it, if you ask me. Oh, and the movies are damn terrible, don't even bother with them.

Well, if I did have the time to watch it. I should try and watch through more Doctor Who but now I'm thinking of getting into Game of Thrones. The amount of dragon posts I see that's related to that show is making me want to give it a shot.

You could be considered the most attractive woman in the whole wide world but if you can't get along with my major interests, then I have no desire to love a person like that.
Certainly not love, but maybe some other things, perhaps. ;)

Well then... :o Nah, even if a woman walked into my room right now and asked me for all the sex she wanted, even though we had absolutely nothing in common, I just don't think I would take it on. I'd rather dedicate myself to one who truly knows me and loves me. Then again, knowing that I can be desperate at times, I'd probably fall for it depending on my mood...

I used to think I was asking too much from a love partner but a few simple things like that, it can't be that bad and surely there's plenty out there that fit under that criteria.
It's certainly possible. That's why I suggest looking to find social groups that match some of your interests, as your bound to find like minded people there. Just finding a girl in day to day life seems like trying to find a needle in a haystack, but being lucky enough to find one that's like you? Damn, you need the internet for that shit. :P

Tumblr seems to be a good opportunity to find people with common interests. Well, if more were better with filling in their about info, it would be a lot better. I have my favourite search results such as dragons, Monty Python and plushies (although that gives me tons of ponies, lol) so if I find some potentially good individuals, I'll give them a follow.

Perhaps I can wander around on Last.fm as well. I was well involved with the community part of the site years back but that was ages ago. Maybe I can pick it up again and see who I could actually come across on my searches. I don't think there's much else to check on the internet for the time being so I'll keep up with my Tumblr exploring.

I actually feared that if I ended the relationship with her, she wouldn't even want to see me again and it would cause problems with seeing those that we both know. Thankfully that hasn't been the case and we're still in speaking terms. As said before, she's handled the break up much better than the last few.
Yeah, the fallout of a relationship (or the creation of one for that matter) can sometimes cause some collateral damage. Looks like you lucked out.

I have to agree. Recently a couple that many of us here knew very well broke up and they got engaged last year. To those two it's an even bigger shock to them what happened. I don't know all the exact details so I can't say for myself if this was just a general break up or something. I feel with my situation we were just hit with an unfortunate circumstance which I don't think actually made the final call on whether we were right together or not. She was just under stress and couldn't cope with it anymore. Potentially getting back together could work but I know I shouldn't build my hopes. I keep telling myself that but my brain and feelings just don't keep me 100% stable.

Roommates are never something I've had to worry about but then again, being stuck with parents even at the age of 22 isn't so grand either but what can I do about it?
It's tough out there these days, for sure. Hopefully you'll be able to land a good enough job to support yourself. If not, hey, there's always roommates. ;)

I'm not one for wanting to mooch off others. It's probably bad enough I'm still living here but it's a lose-lose situation here.

The funny thing is, I actually tried to invite them all to my 18th birthday. It wasn't a problem for the teachers to be there but those old friends, only three managed to show up.
You invited your teachers? Not a chance I would do a thing like that. :P

I'm actually quite fond of some of them. However, my mum did insist at one point to invite those from the secondary school but I did make a strong statement against that. At least I had it my way since after all, it was my fucking birthday party.

Some I could possibly chase up on Facebook but it's been over a decade since they last saw me and I'd be amazed if they could recognise me now. Compare me to when I was 9 years old, it's a major difference.
That's really cool that some did show up, though. It must have been a really cool experience to see those people after such a long time.

It was only the odd one sadly but it was still worth a shot. You just gotta give these things a try. I'm still pondering on the idea of tracking them down on Facebook and attempt to add them all there.

It's really bad when they have to be immature and make homophobic comments. Even if you two were gay, what's their fucking business? Schools can be hit and miss with how they handle those that get ridiculed with such comments but in this modern age there better be a zero tolerance policy on homophobia.
I wouldn't even have called it homophobia, as I never felt any sort of hate from those kids. They were just incredibly immature/bored, I guess. I guess they just felt like pestering us because we were really close friends and weren't part of their "cool" clique. (The funny thing is, our friendship eventually came to an end when a girl came between us!) LOL

If it did turn out you were gay, I wouldn't have been surprised if they bullied you some more. That to me is how some idiots in school are like.

Hah, I can do all the burning with my own throat. Amazing, isn't it? Too bad I'm not doing it as often as I'd like. :P
Maybe you can use some of that time you're not updating stat lists and go on a rampage or two? :P

Yes, it's good practice time!

It's probably bad that I still have a grudge against her over that even to this day but if you're meant to be the management for those with disabilities of any kind and that's how you feel was right to treat someone who was under stress, you have no fucking idea what you're doing with your job and you should have been fired. If this ever happens to my child, there'd be a shitstorm for sure.
I'd still hold a grudge, too, if it were me. Hell, that seems like one of those memories that would be tough to forget. :\

And they say you could do a hundred good things to them but they'll remember the one bad thing more than anything. Even so, some actions are inexcusable.

If we're still cool with each other despite the events, I can't see why we can't. It might be a while before I see her in person, though but when we do I'm sure we'll enjoy seeing each other again.
Sometimes I think about how much it sucks that I'll most likely never see a lot of the people from my past again. (Exes, old school friends or what have you.) That's why I'm happy it worked out the way it did for you guys. :)

Yeah, there's too many that I couldn't get back to simply because we moved on to different schools. This is why I'm wanting to see if finding that old group of friends on Facebook could do something potentially good. Nothing wrong with an old face saying hi.

lol! Well, that's a constructive hobby, I guess... 0.o

But hey, that's what people aged 18-25 are like. Shame I'm halfway through that age group already. I still look at myself and think how much more I could have done at this point but at least my social life is better than ever.

And here I wonder what happened if I took the other path in the fork and got myself addicted to World of Warcraft instead of making flash animations.
Why, you would have met an enchanting night elf and lived happily ever after in Warcraft land, of course! (Probably could have done more with that, if I actually knew anything about Warcraft.) lol

That could have possibly happened but I'm really not one for the monthly subscriptions for WoW so it won't be happening.

There was a certain point in my life when I could have been addicted to WoW but I managed to get out of it while I was ahead. Could I have met someone on there just like what happened to my sister?
God, I'm kinda glad I never got into WoW. You see, I have an addictive personality when it comes to nerdy stuff like that. (b/p'ing on NG is an excellent example.)

I know that feeling but at least I'm wearing thin on NG now and I'm using the internet more for social purposes and for contact... oh, and reblogging random crap all day long.

It probably would have consumed my life to the point where I was reduced to a basement-dwelling goblin, living off Doritos and Mountain Dew who's only source of light is a computer screen. XD

I think I may have spent enough time on NG already but it's not easy when you can't be going outside the house all the time.

This kind of alternative reality is possible in a parallel universe somewhere. Yes, I'm the kind of fool that believes in sci-fi mumbo jumbo as that. ;D Anything is possible, you know?
The Multiverse is no joke, my friend. :P There is a Bahamut who played WoW and doesn't even have a Newgrounds account. And there's another who has an vast collection of Easy Listening music and loathes metal! lmao

And perhaps a Bahamut who much prefer humans and hates dragons. Maybe there's a version of myself where I actually watch loads of American sitcoms and not so much on Britcoms. There could be one of me where I'm a chav (god forbid). Perhaps I was an animator along the lines of Adam Phillips. So many possibilities... Oh yeah, don't forget one where I'm actually a dragon. :P

Speaking of dating sites, I have been looking into them lately. I know I was cynical because it doesn't take much to pretend to be someone but you know what, it doesn't hurt to try. It's kinda like searching for a job on the internet. Chances are most of them are non-existent anyway but either you sit there and do nothing and earn nothing at all as a result OR, you could actually try and approach them and see what happens. The worst that would happen is hearing nothing in return or them simply saying they're not all that interested in you. The latter might be bad to hear but if they know so little about you anyway, it won't be such a huge loss. Just try again and find someone else.
That's the way you need to look at it, I think. I mean, you're odds of finding a relationship online are way better then if you don't make any effort at all. Seems like most dating sites ask for specific turn-ons/turn-offs, so you should be able to find someone you click with, though it'll probably take a bit of trial and error -just stick with it! :P

I think some sites can be over-specific and too personal with yourself but from what I've seen, I can easily tell who are potential matches and who I wouldn't even touch with a ten foot pole. What I've been liking about date searching the most is that I am truly going by personality. I look up certain keywords and if what they say about themselves sounds good, the second thought is their appearance. This is of course a lower priority but their looks do have some factor on whether I would be with them or not.

You pretty much hit the nail on the head with the trial and error comment. So far it's feeling like that. I have attempted to message some of them but most haven't responded back. I'm not the most experienced with this thing so I can only try.

You know, I've always feared that by attempting to talk to women and see if I could ask them out, I'd only be seen as some stalker or a sex predator but if you're gonna advertise yourself on dating websites and you're looking for a partner of whatever gender, clearly there's no stalking there if all you're gonna do is try and talk to them.
I've often felt the same thing, especially when there's no easy opening to spark up a conversation without sounding awkward or like a total creep. XD

That's been another problem of mine. I want to comment on what I like about them but it can feel like I'm overdoing it. I suppose sticking to the one thing or two that catches my attention about them helps. If they reply back, great! Try developing that conversation and then lead onto other things.

A recent strong statement to myself is if I don't ask, I simply don't get. I just gotta make these attempts and see if they would be willing to see me. Sure, despite finding them on DATING SITES, I'm not expecting to go on a date straight away but we have to get to know each other first.
It's the quickest way to get yourself out there, and hey, at least you know everyone on there is looking for a date and doesn't already have a damn boyfriend. (Or at least you hope they don't.) :P

It would be shit of them to be doing it when they're already with someone, unless things weren't working out for them. The only thing is that I'm not the only one who's looking for a date out there so I do have competition... This is really sounding more and more like the job market.

What I'd like to do first is talk to them a bit and see how things progress. Generally I'd like to see that we can speak to each other on Facebook for general contacts and Skype to have a video chat somewhere down the line. Video chat is easily the best way to prove that they're legit.
Yeah, strangely enough, I always thought talking online (even just using IM, or something) served as a good way to "break the ice" with people, albeit on a pretty superficial level. Though I suppose when you're talking about a potential date, some kind of video chat would be required, as you said.

Well with an IM contact you can pretend to be anyone so something like Facebook is far more genuine and video chat is the final thing to make yourself sure.

So yeah, online dating shouldn't be all that bad. I may not have much experience with it right now but it can't be all that bad. If I keep looking out, who knows what an amazing individual I can find!
Good luck, and feel free to let us know how your endeavors turn out. :)

So far not so grand. They say one of things is to mention on your profile is hopes and aspiration but I'm such a talentless guy that I really can't say much about that. Maybe if I was in a job, I could easily say that and put that down but right now I have nothing. I know not every woman is going to care about that kind of thing but it seems most do and if I don't say much about that, it feels like I'm stuck in the mud. Fair enough, they would like to know that they are going out with a guy who has solid future plans but not everyone is fortunate enough to be in employment or studying.

I've not been doing this for so long so maybe I just need to give it time. Another potential problem is the distance. I can understand a local distance is preferrable but some just need to look beyond their region and go for someone who lives around 100 miles away or so. If my sister has done that to meet with her now fiance and if my friend's brother is going to marry someone in America, many others can too go for long distance relationships just to find THE one. I know not everyone will be up for it but if you don't have much luck with your local area, you should at least consider looking beyond the surroundings of your area. I will only go as far as within Great Britain, although I would much rather live elsewhere.

She seems to want to steal them and then go back home. D:
Well, that's just shallow. :P

Eh, I think I'm used to women wanting to steal things from me. My ex had her fun with stealing my hair bobbles as she thought I looked a lot better with my hair down but at times I really needed to tie my hair back but then she'll just take them. Mind you, she still has some of my bobbles and claims I'll get them back at some point.

It's funny how the whole thing with my hair down started off at a party we were both at but she was too shy to say it to my face so she got a friend of hers to say it to me instead. I took the compliment for granted since anything people like about me I would like to keep up to make both ends happy. Because of that, whenever she is around I must have my hair down, otherwise I'm getting hell from her. However, since we're not together anymore, she doesn't quite have the full authority over my hair, even though this thing traits back to when she was in her previous relationship before going out with me.

Well, I may end up making my activity minimal but I'll have to check here every so often.
It's always a good place to chat every once in a while, even if you aren't super active overall.

I agree with that. Like I said, even if I do make a lot of cutbacks on the site, I'm still going to be around for this thread, unless everyone I know here is gone.

I keep meaning to retire them at milestones but it's a matter of if I feel like keeping it going now.
How many are you still depositing for these days? You could always just focus on depositing for the couple that are near and dear to you. ;)

I'm now only depositing for the one guy. All my alts have been put to a halt for at least two weeks now. I know I could try and put them on retirement counts but I don't even want to bother with that. With how I'm feeling about Newgrounds nowadays, I can see that one day I will give depositing on my main account a rest once and for all. This isn't something I can keep up with forever.

But Bahamut only puts down album titles and Chop Suey! is on Toxicity.

And that shows how long and well you know me Coop! ;)

You passed 66,000 Saves. Way to go!

Because of the condition of the portal, do save milestones even count as achievements since saves are much easier to obtain and high saves are frowned upon?

ZOMG!
Okay, now that is fucking hot.

Yeah, nothing beats hot virtual sex on WoW.

Wow, that's really disappointing... :( but now that I think about it... how on earth did you happen to know of the term "reach-around" if it wasn't for that movie? :P
Uh, you know, all that about "reaching around the block a few times" and such. :P

I have to admit, I never heard that phrase before, haha.

Ok, I'm glad we got that covered. ^^
D
Pretty much. But since we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, there's really nothing special going on in November.
I suppose you could always go to a wedding. :P

Yeah, I always wanted to crush someone else's wedding.

What you say? It's like saying Fagamut and Bahamut are the same person!
I think you may be onto something...

It smells like a conspiracy!

Thankless little bitch, for the tears I cried.

All blistered and burnt, can't hide my disgrace.

Yes. Writing, explaining, copying the post, waiting for it to be deleted, just so that I can post it again.... too much trouble. ;)

We won't live long enough to find out. :(
And yet we keep wondering the fate of the universe. We should already worry what the world will be like in a few decades time. Who knows what they can do to maintain life?

I don't know. The human mind and or brain doesn't seem to cope too well with an overly long lifespan.

Keep in mind that I never watched Star Trek,
Ok, then take Star Wars instead. "Many Bothans died...". So, are the Bothans a "race of master spies"? How should that work out? Who would hire a bothan chef, for example? It's clear that he's a spy...
Actually, Star Wars is a good one. Earth isn't even acknowledged in the stories, unless it is somewhere beyond the films.

Also, many people seem to miss that it's "A long time ago". Yet everyone says, the story takes place in the future...

I'd cycle to places but I should first see if my bike can work again. Then again, I much prefer to walk and bringing my bike over to Liverpool and back can be a bit of a task.

Yes. Taking a bike with you in a bus or a train sucks.

Never herd of Merseyside before. And I only know Cheshire because of a certain cat (and I think there's a Square by that name in Los Angeles).
Merseyside is the county I live in, although Wirral can be considered a county of its own. It's generally used over Merseyside for county on address forms.

I see. I thought The Wirral only was the name of the peninsula.

If desktops are dying, how do you explain the Steam community? Many will still play games on standard computers, although I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere down the line they start trying out adapting tablet games on there.

Just imagine playing a game like TF2 on a touchscreen...
