Re: Also, I am 25 and male.

There's something about an introductions thread that makes me feel comfortable about talking about myself. It's allowed, and I know no one is ever going to read what I write here. Ever.

I plan on havign a NSFW mode and a SFW mode, in the SFW mode, only images that haven't been voted NSFW are shown, in the NSFW mode, and image is shown and when voting you can also vote an image NSFW.

We will see how it goes, but the intent is to keep it entirely user moderated.

Tritium is rare and expensive. It's got a half-life of only 12.5 years. You can produce it (if memory serves) by bombardment of lithium-6 with neutrons, but that just moves the bottleneck.
