What would you be doing if you lived during your post count?

I stole this idea from another thread but though it quite a fun idea.

Possibly in the year 1003 Leif Eriksson discovered America.

Global Warming was pretty bad

If you are like Sandman or JD and have your eyes permanently glued to your monitor :wink: then what about BC?

The internet is a wonderful thing. I know what I’m about to type is going to veer way off topic but hey, it rings kinda true.

Back in the day when I was into online games and I participate in the cyber athletics league for CS, I wasn’t worried about post counts and shit like that. I enjoyed my time online. September 11, I was online playing a match during a sunny day in Toronto. Smokin a fat cannon and whipping out Terrorists with my cyber m41a and a piece of history I can say that I was a part of at that very second. Never did I give a shit about how much time I spent online or how many posts I had made on the [BLIND] clan forum. I had friends overseas and people I still chat with. I see no harm in that and when we have met (State side) it was really cool. Post count? WHO GIVES A SHIT?!?!

So why do we go on about it now as if it’s a badge of shame to post online? Mid-life crisis? No life outside your cubicle? What’s up?

Well if I were the Emperor Titus, I’d be dying and if I were the Emperor Domitian, I’d be succeeding. Otherwise, I suspect I’d be in the midst of writing a gospel of some sort.

With my frequency of hospital visits? Pushing up daisies!

Oh wait. No. I posted a lot.
Hmmm. No idea. I’m not creative enough to imagine the future.

Ummmmm…

I kind of meant it to just be a fun “game”.

Learn a bit of history by surfing the web.

I should have put it in the “Fun and Games” thread.

Mod’s. Move please. :slight_smile:

Sorry if I offended you mate. Wasn’t my intention. (From a fellow Torontonian)

That’s why I said B.C. as well

I read this on another forum:

Not having computer knowledge in the 21st century is…

Not having a driver’s license in the 20th century.

It’s Luddite to make fun of computer “geeks”…you’re like people in the 19th century making fun of “telephone” or “railroad” geeks.

Ah Lo Bo to. ya didn’t offend me. I see the net as an extension of my arm. I’ve met people who’ve egged me on for a scrap. I’ve met women for a date. I’ve met people off line due to similar interests. So what? Times have changed and although I love to rage against the machine - welcome to 2006/2007.

Scraps to… fucking: there’s something more pure about this approach, don’t ya think?

If you can’t live up to your words, then you’ll end up fucked. But…if you end up living up to you word, just like anywhere else, you’ll be golden. The net gives you a damn good chance to express yourself because it’s written fact as to what you say. Foreign languages to yours only have to look it up to feel you or if they’re from the same background then - they can only challenge you. That’s where you step up your game or confront them. I prefer confrontation. Regardless of the outcome. Why? I’m not gifted with words and it might be my grave one day. (Been there…done that…Mom’s station wagon.)

Ok…It’s late…Going to bed soon

I wasn’t being sarcastic or facetious with my thread.

For example…Monster…You have 1400and-some odd posts.

What happened in the year that is the post count that your current post is in?

Am I the only one who thinks this might be fun. If so then ignore me (This post) and move on.

I was poking fun at Sandman and JD just for the sake of poking fun.

Relax man.

Or maybe it’s too late and I didn’t get YOUR sense of humour Monster.

Off to the beach for the long weekend. Have a good one.

(I’ll be at Bai Sha (Kentings) if ya’ want to challenge me to a swim-off Monster) :wink:

As for words vs. real life…well, some people are better at certain things than other people. Ever heard of the multiple intelligences theory? Monster is - I’d like to think to so - a friend of mine. So he’s not so good at expressing himself on the page. I am very good at expressing myself verbally. But in a lot of other areas of my life, I am a total fuckup. Monster is better at dealing with people in real life, better than I am. What I mean is, that for all my intellectual intelligence, in a pinch where there’s a serious real-life situation that has to be dealt with, a guy like Monster has a lot more street smarts than I do. Well, there you go - multiple intelligences. Passing a test isn’t the ultimate expression of intelligence. I wish more Taiwanese understood this. I was a total fuckup at passing tests in my academic career, but I had read 100x more novels and knew more about literature than 99% of the people at matriculating at the Ivy League, when I was an 18 year old kid. That’s only because I couldn’t care less about math, science, foreign languages, etc…all that boring technical engineers’ shit. All I cared about was reading novels and picking up cool stuff from history. So I was a failure as an academic. Doesn’t make me stupid because I flunked out of freshman biology.

Dude you should SMELL what passes for porn these days!

What about her? Hmm?

Full O’piss and didn’t have a clue what you were goin’ on about. Come to think of it…I don’t have a clue what I was thinking about either. Jeeeezuz.

BTW: I can’t swim. HA!

In 1453, i.e. MCDLIII, Johann Gutenberg invented the movable type printing press. This brought about a social change arguably as profound as the invention of the Internet.

Umm…not having to think about stuff like this? :wink:

That, and Constantinople fell.
