Sometimes I think the internet is a better place to be.

Friends you talk to don’t want to see you in person
Family members would rather see people they like than people they barely talk to

I’m starting to think this 2 week vacation was a horrible idea

[/quote]Honestly, I think it’s the worst thing to happen and it’s getting to the stage that people would rather talk to you via the Internet than in person

Even if it is for a free webcam code, I’ll be happy someone talked to me :slight_smile:

Looks like they are trying really hard to force players to leave the game…

Some sick fucks posting video’s on Facebook showing animals getting slaughtered or ran over

Alright, update on that friend I mentioned back at the end of May. She’s alive. So my worst fears were not realized. I probed a bit, but she didn’t want to share so I didn’t press the issue. We caught up, let her know that I’m relieved to see her alive and gave her a virtual hug so to speak. lol

So yeah, all’s well with her, for now.

Happy ending?


#1004

By my standards, yeah.

I love alcohol. Not drinking it myself, but I love what it does to other people. How it numbs their ability to care about consequences, and their tongue is freed up to say what the heart cannot. When your “friend” talks about their “0 tolerance for cheating” and how love is sacred and absolute faithfulness is paramount, but then actively encourages your boyfriend to cheat on you when you aren’t there.

In this way, I consider alcohol a rather effective weed killer.

People do stupid things, when they are drunk


#1008

There’s those kinds of drunks, and then there’s my parents. They’re the kind that get angry and start fights lmao


#1009

Yeah, but it’s normally things they want to do when sober it’s just that they understand the repercussions of what they’re doing, whereas when drunk, they don’t. Alcohol doesn’t typically conjure thoughts in your head out of nowhere.

I just love it when someone makes a fight out of something that was never a fight in the first place


#1011

pats back shhhh it’s okay Spec


#1012

Don’t you love it when someone you don’t like keeps bothering you and annoying you even though you’ve told them to stop and then they go and tell others that you hate them and that they’ve been nice to you even though if they were to be nice then they would have stopped talking to you when you asked them too?

pats back shhhh it’s okay Max

I just found out that Vudu charges you to convert discs to digital copies. It’s $2 for an SD DVD, $5 for a HDX (aka 1080p) DVD, and $2 for a HDX Blu-ray. I already own the movie, why the heck should I have to pay extra to convert MY OWN MOVIE to a digital copy?! Walmart’s (Vudu’s owner) getting greedy with this new service, and it’s bullcrap.


#1015

I find a lot of dumb rules regarding original copies and making more is to try and prevent ‘pirating’ which makes no sense because you wouldn’t use a service like this to pirate something. Although, some small amount of argument could be made to pay for server/bandwidth… but that would be mere penny change.


#1017

I see what you did there…

…please don’t hurt me.
