oh also, i had an honest question for the thread. I have had this profile on OKC for years now, with minimal success (few real dates, and even fewer message responses) I haven't really updated it in a while and i was wondering if i should just tweak the stuff thats changed in the meantime(for instance, I've now got my BA and am no longer a student) or start over from scratch. I've got a rough draft for a new profile, but first i'd like to know what you guys think. here it is:

In addition to everything Nigel said, get rid of the income, add a couple more things on "you should message me if," switch out your profile pic for one with better lighting and focus, and answer another couple hundred questions. Oh, and your media section needs some newer entries, too.

I don't know if this is universal, but every time I see "kissing" "cuddling" or similar smarmy shit in the good at section I barf a little in my mouth. This may be a personal problem.

Mark Thomas is a good man.

RE: Checks and balances are supposed to check and balance government and corporate interests, but they are working together more and more. Cooperation is nice, but it kinda sucks that they are working together against humans.

Humans are no longer the dominant organizational pattern on this planet.

Friend's 30th birthdayparty yesterday.
I am overhung.
I woke up and I couldn't find my glasses. I put on my spare (old) glasses but that didn't help at all. In the end I had to stumble downstairs, find my prescription sunglasses and use those to find my regular glasses. It turns out they were in the windowsill near my computer. Apparently I tried to play a game or something when I got home yesterday? I can't remember.

The life of an alcoholic is rough.

I like the idea of barter currency.

That said, most modern currencies are  barter currncies. many places have tried to implement a barter currency. It sometimes works for a while. Have you looked into these?

High Weirdness / Re: The Annals Of Improbable Research
« Last post by Sexy St. Nigel on Today at 08:25:26 am »
The ironic thing is that I actually did a forum search to see if this had been discussed before, and it only turned up a single ancillary mention of the magazine.

I think I accidentally ran a search of the High Weirdness subforum only, because I ran another search today and got significantly more hits; including a similar topic that I apparently started five and a half years ago. So I do apologize for posting nearly the same topic twice, but I legitimately did check into whether this was redundant with previous discussions.

The ironic thing might be that the most social board on the forum is frequently purged. It might also be that it is hard to search article links by parent publisher name. But actually I think that it is most likely that you are ignoring the important part of the message, which is that there are some methods that you can use when rejoining a forum after a long absence, other than bumping many old threads and replying to them and

actually, never mind. Fuck it. I'm too tired and have too much to do this week to try to swim upstream.
