Sorry? For what? What did I do? What happened? Where's the fire? XD

 

But oh. It's a good thing I'm really not that into sports. :P That means you HAVE to be sorry now because I have no valid empathy for the win against you. But... I can't resist using the opportunity - Sucked in Scots! XD Sorry.

You and me both. I always sort of zone out whenever people talk about sports.

I Remember visiting a Church friend's party (by force from parents), and it was all centered around the grand final footie game, live on TV. Eeegh, the people were so loud, screaming at the top of their lungs at the TV, and I couldn't even make out where the ball was. So I spent 2 hours sitting outside by myself, enjoying the peace and solitude. XD Much preferred that. I was called anti-social for that, but that's alright. X3 I don't give a shit.

Oh yeah, people get rather excessively passionate about sport, especially Football. You don't visit pubs on a Derby night, I'll tell you that. And don't EVER wear blue in a Celtic pub. Ye'll get yer heed smashed in.

 

Rugby's a much nicer sport.

A mate showed me what Australian football looks like yesterday. I still haven't changed my mind about not wanting to visit Australia...

 

XD What's wrong with Australia? What are ya trying to say, mate? :P

Football isn't that much of a hit from where I live, but mention anything basketball-related or switch to a basketball channel and all hell breaks loose, while i'm in the other room with a guitar or something.

Gotta love how just because you don't associate with a certain culture you get called anti-social.

 

If I hang out with other gamers, I'm really social. If I hang out with a bunch of sports fans I'm just gonna be miserable.

It's all about finding your crowd.

Can't agree more. I don't mix with anyone at my Church... except for the guys I play board games with. It's just two guys who like video and board games. And they're the only ones I can talk to without getting bored or offended. X3 I've had too many people from Church come up to me and hug me and I'm just thinking; "Get the fuck off me." XD But those two other guys? They're like, 25 years old, but they're my only friends from Church. I even went to the cinemas with them - to see that Jurassic World movie. Absolute fun. And all because of the fact that we all play video-games. XD

Forums are pretty much friendship goldmines for me because we all have the same interests. :D

I'm 23, and I've never been able to find a group where I can hang out and not be bored out of my mind. I pretty much have to leave the state to do that.

Yeah, I love this forum. I've met so many friends here.

On sports: I don't understand why watching other people play eachother in a multiplayer game is suppised to be entertaining. These games SUCK, too. They never mix it up and there's no story at all. I'd rather watch people play CoD matchmaking. Better variety, funnier, at least equal story, and less time with fuck all going on. And seriously, hour long matches? No fucking way.

 

(Hopefully, you all get the comparison.)

 

EDIT:

WARNING: WEIRDNESS TO FOLLOW.

 

Okay, so on a drunken lark a while back I tried showering with no light. As in, as near-total darkness as humanly possible. And it was FANTASTIC. And it remained fantastic for weeks while sober. Try it. Play with the temperature, the water pressure, your position... Whatever you change, you will feel so much more when your body has to adjust for the loss of your sight and diminishment of your hearing and smell. It is equal parts pleasure, life hack (experiment, instant wake-ups and sleep aids are easy with effective alternations between hot and cold) and and existential experience. 10/10 will never go back to lighted showers.

I don't think I could do that. For one I have a slight fear of the dark. Nothing bad, like I'm perfectly, 110% fine if I'm in a place I'm comfortable with (room, house, friends house, etc) which extends to a much stronger fear, an actual phobia I have, of deep, dark water. Like my biggest 'logical' fear is drowning in the ocean. As fascinated as I am with the ocean and sea creatures (I really really love the aquarium and any nature/science shows that talk about the ocean and what's in it) I'm absolutely terrified of it as well. XD

 

While I know it's not the same thing, just imagining being in the shower while it's that dark gives me close to the same feeling as imagining being in the deepest parts of the ocean without light. I think I'll pass. ^_^

 

Glad it works for you though! But do be safe. Slipping in the shower with no light could lead to dangerous situations. I slipped once and getting up was difficult enough with the pain and that was lit. XD

 

 

Bit of a deviation:

 

I always see a lot of guests viewing these forums and wonder to myself how many of them are new users waiting to happen, how many are old users who are silently keeping track of the place, how many are long time visitors that just never registered, how many are first time/last time, and how many are just search engine bots documenting pages. I don't know why that's so fun to think bout. Maybe cuz I know I'll never get an answer and my imagination can run?

I occasionally looked at comments on Ross's uploads for maybe 4 months before I made an account. I'm very glad I decided to take the plunge. I had definitely missed forums. I can also safely say that this place has the highest registration rate I've seen on a forum, but very little saturation. It got busy on the Moon Gaming thread when people basically went "I need to directly tell Ross never to make a Moon Gaming video again".

 

It's also interesting to see users that only post on the blog threads. They know not to get too immersed in the general section!
