If I have ice, but no drink, I chew ice. It is pleasant and moderately thirst-quenching.
So, I got tired of the fact that the appearance of my band name in my signature made my posts on this forum the dominant result when googling for my music. Anyway, if you think I might happen to be a good musician, you can test this theory here.

No! Next to having fights with them, crunching on ice cubes is the most fun you can have with them!

And i have a theory as to why you didn't get sick, because i do the same thing, except for a while there i had a problem with chewing on my nails and constantly had my hands in my mouth, i think that you just end up with a super intense immune system.

To me it is. Along with the gum and toothpicks, it seems to be accepted usage here in the US, hence my original post about cultural differences with respect to ickiness. It seems many people here in the US are germ-phobic, much more so than in Europe, whereas I'm actually pretty easy-going about germs. I do bathe daily, and prefer not to touch very icky sticky things, but on the whole I don't really find shared common spaces repulsive. By most US standards, considering my lack of paranoia about touching money, door handles, stair rails, public swimming pools, and not washing my hands except before eating (and after using restroom), I should have succumbed to bacterial infections by now, yet I'm never sick.


Insert "You actually use your immune system, so it doesn't suck/antibacterial shit will destroy us all" rant here.

I think it's Rant #57. I may be mistaken. I always get that one and "What constitutes a reasonable listening volume at 2pm is nowhere near the same as a reasonable volume at 2am, asshole. Turn that shit down" mixed up.

Just make sure you spray the volume knob with antibacterial stuff. That'll show 'em.

Confession: I frequently see thread titles that I want to parody, e.g., "I need a smile" becoming "I need a simile", and for a moment, I'm tempted to make the parody threads. But I don't need a simile. Needing a simile is like... um... hmm.

just my opinion but i'd say go into as little debt as possible, especially with friends (including your ex). IF you've managed to exist without a car for this long, you should be able to work a little more, a little harder and hold out so you can do it all on your own. buying a car and keeping it gassed up is going to put a big enough dent in your pocket without owing someone else money on top of it.

this is, unless circumstances have changed and you are REQUIRED to have a car now. i cant see a very successful pizza guy using public transportation to make his deliveries, or whatever. good luck to ya, either way.

Okay, I've been avoiding the confession thread, but I really need to write this down somewhere and try to get it out of my head- or at least let it exist somwhere else.

Mini-Confession: I have about as much social life as a week-old fish. With halitosis.

Confession 1: I just semi-deliberately drove off the one person whom I actually interact (AIM counts as social interaction, right?) with on a regular basis.

Confession 2: I'm still having trouble deciding if #1 is on the whole a good thing or a bad thing.

Confession 3: Just today, I got a Just Shy shirt from a family member as a present. I'm wondering now if I should wear it or if it would be false advertising; I'm not entirely sure that I'm not actually anti-social.

Confession 4: I haven't got a clue who I am. I spent my life up through high school focussing on either books or video games, and occasionally studies, and dismissing friendship as not worth it, for the most part. Then I spent the past three years pretty much alone, aside from family I'm stuck with; now I have this urge to have the socialization I never did earlier, but I know almost no one and have no clue where to start; I want to feel comfortable somewhere with some people, but I haven't felt like I belonged anywhere since my junior year of high school. I try to be a comp.sci. geek, but I haven't the knowledge; I try to be a theatre type, but I don't have the... passion for it, I guess.

Confession 5: I keep lurking around here, but my post count is so low, because I read the threads, see how clever people are, and I get overwhelmed a bit; in any case, I never feel like I have anything useful to say, and when I do say it. I feel like I do whenever I open my mouth IRL- like I've just made an absolutely ridiculous faux pas because of all the social rules I don't get, and probably people are going to permanently shun me now.

Okay, that's enough and probably way too much (Really mini confession: I'm much too tired and ought not to be posting when I'm not thinking straight), but five's a good number to stop on.fnord
You know it's all beginning
To feel like pretending...

Happy yesterday to all!

You're like i would be if I didn't have the humongous ego I do.
I get that feeling too, not quite that good at anything, a jack of all trades but a master of none if you will. But since I'm so convinced of my own greatness I tend not to bother and fake it till i make it. I have a social life by pure accident, since i met likeminded people in highschool, and by the fact that my ego needs sating, and i can't do that alone, need others to see me i suppose.
If there is anything i've really got it's self insight. And by your confession so do you. The only real tip i have is this:
You don't need to add new information to a person to have an interesting conversation. Social life is not based on skills, and you don't need an excuse to just talk to someone.

For about 3 months up unitl recently, ive been using alcohol to not so much solve problems, but forget about things and keep my mind off other stuff. Not alcoholic style, but always going out and drinking or chilling with a few mates. and at one point EVERY NIGHT for 2 weeks drinking scotch and playing 500 with 4 of my closest mates. Kinda realised i was drinking a bit too much, and for some of the wrong reasons, as realistically i had just been pretending to be ok about things....

@Kamikazee - If you're aware of that and can stop drinking (or even, deal with whatever the problems are) then you've got nothing to worry about. I did a similar thing, except without the social element (ie three months drinking alone every night.) Came a point where I decided to stop that and move on.

@JayDee - Yeah, i realised what i was doing as i went on holidays and kept up the habit of having a few drinks every night (except alone). Had 2 massive nights in the city around New Years with close friends, and some of the things i said and sent (sms), I realised I what I had been doing (avoidence).

The day you stop and look at yourself in a mirror and say "what the fk are you doing?" is the day to draw the line.

Nice quote from battlestar galactica
Tigh: (to Bulldog) Tell you a dirty little secret. The toughest part of getting played is losing your dignity. Feeling like you are not worth the oxygen you are sucking down. You get used to it. You start to believe it. You start to love it. It's like a bottle that never runs dry. You can keep reaching for it over and over and over again.
Adama: So how do you put that bottle away, Saul?
Tigh: I don't know. One day you just decide to get up and walk out of your room.

Confession 2: Last weekend, I ended up watching Land Before Time while taking care of a friend's kids. I was similarly dry-eyed throughout the entire movie. I'm forced to believe that even captcha bots have more of a soul than me.

Oh, perhaps I should explain. It was because seeing the postcard made me realize the exact same thing about someone *I* know. You might as well consider that the postcard was written by me. So it was the emotion behind suddenly realizing that someone in my family just...doesn't love me and hasn't for a long, long time.

Confession: First I told my self I'd stop looking at this board during the school year (it extends my procrastination abilities far beyond their normal range). I failed that. I said that I'd at the very least stop posting here, as my ego causes me to act like I know more than everyone, which leads to bad things. You can guess how I'm doing on that.

Confession: Yesterday I took a test to determine who'd be in the regionals for this contest-type thing for science club. I started on the math test (which I realized I'd never finish and was about to miss the activity bus), so I was in a hurry. Assuming my ego didn't alter my memory, I somehow got a 39/40 on the biology test. I should be happy... but I think I'm more disturbed. About a page and a half of answers I didn't know and had to take an educated guess. Another answer I only got right because of a random fact a girl in my English class mentioned the day before. I find it disturbing that I correctly guessed the names of things I've never even studied "animals X, Y and Z belong to which <taxonomic name that I don't even know the level of>," and the functions of parts of animals I didn't even know existed. I barely know anything specific about the competition, like if next week in science club we'll be taking the actual test (against other schools instead of the class), or if we'll be preparing for them or what. I don't know if I should start studying random topics so I don't come unprepared or wait for further instructions.

Confession: I don't even feel like finishing that above confession because a large part of it feels like I'm just bragging. This is confirmed by the fact that I don't want to delete it either.
(confession: I just finished it)

Confession: I'm pretty much useless. Before I'd spend my time studying, but doing nothing else. At the very least, at least it got my grades up. Now I feel no motivation to do even that, and only spend my time surfing the web. Though it hasn't effected my grade yet, if I don't get off my ass, they will drop by Monday, and I only have a semester left in highschool... damn senioritus.

Confession: I feel like the above confessions feel superficial compared to other things I want to confess. (all pretty much more about how much I hate my self and life)

Edit: Yay! It turns out my ego did alter my memory (39/50)

Confession: I've created several postcards for Post Secret, but I've never sent them. I always end up realizing that telling people won't make the problem go away, and in fact, the time spent addressing it in that manner would have been better spent trying to find a better solution.

I've never sent one in, but I think that maybe if you've gone that far you should just go with it. It could be a rewarding experience, and since you've already made the cards...

Confession: I was just reading the "state of nature thread." (That's not my confession.) They kept referring to hunter-gatherer societies as H/G societies and the practitioners as H/Gers. ...So it turns out even though I haven't read fanfic for like a year, it's still in my soul. (This is my confession -->) I can't stop reading it as Harry/Ginny societies and shippers. "Harry/Ginny shippers are nomadic. Harry/Ginny shippers must find more food." And I giggle.

I have a confession to make (actually, I have quite a few, as you can see by the length of this post). I waited to post on the confession thread until the minute the thread turned one year old. Yes. This thread is now a full year old, and not a minute less (according to the forum timecodes, anyway...). I wanted to be able to claim that I RTFT, but 3 weeks with schoolwork and social responsibilities getting in the way isn't enough time. As it is, I read the first mile (5280 posts - 5280 ft = 1 mi) within a week, but then everything I was putting off caught up with me. So I must, unfortunately, admit that currently this thread is still TL;DR. And then there are people like Pero (p 116) that did RTFT in just 2 days(ish) that make me look bad. Bleah. But then people like Jauss who posted on p 75 with 11 pages to go make me feel a little bit better.

I must confess that this thread actually had something useful for my outside-of-xkcd-responsibilities. I was able to use this site to find music for a project I just recently finished.

On page 5 something was mentioned about Johnny Cash and Reno Rhymes. Confession: I never knew there was a connection. Obviously I should look at the blag more often. Still no clue what song it's from, though. (I assume it's from a song, anyway). I'm the one person who, when watching that episode of Idol, had never heard the song "I walk the line" before.

I found the whole "has my train" thing amusing, though. I must have a strange mind because when I first read that phrase I didn't think about transportation, I thought about the trailing part of a dress. And I'm a guy (very definitely hetero, tyvm).

On a somewhat related note, VSM's ambiguous sexuality for some reason reminded me of the line near the beginning of Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' on Heaven's Door, where the lady in the store says "What are you?" *blows smoke from the gun* "Just a humble bounty hunter, ma'am."

Another thing that was mentioned earlier is dancing. I know how do some ballroom dance (East Coast Swing and Waltz, primarily), and I'd probably have a good time at it if I actually danced with someone. My parents took a ballroom dance class, and I picked up on some of it. They brought me with them when they went to a venue for the local swing band and I pretty much just played wallflower. A cute girl tried to get me to dance with her (all but dragged me onto the dance floor) but I was too shy. I can be such an idiot sometimes.

Confession: I skipped High School altogether. That is to say, I graduated High School before I started my freshman year at High School. It should be noted that although I was the youngest person in my graduating class, it wasn't by all that much. There was someone in my graduating class that was only about two weeks older that I.

A couple years ago I played a mpog that had an unofficial irc room that I frequently visited. It's a fairly small room - the highest attendance I ever saw there never went over 20 (including the bots, which usually remained silent). One of the other regulars there often claimed I was stealing his brainwaves because we would both come to the same conclusion at virtually the same time on many issues. We could finish each others' sentences even though we'd never met irl. It was freaky.

About a week ago I was looking at a book that one of my co-workers had laying around, so he brought it to me to read, since there wasn't a whole lot of actual work to be done right then. Hooray for being paid to read! Wait, that's not quite what I meant to say. I finished about half the book in the ~90 minutes we were sitting around, which impressed him. He asked if I was a speedreader. Truth be told, I can, but I wasn't. I could have finished the book easily if I had been speedreading. Speedreading is a skill I have that I underuse muchly.

Well, I should probably get around to finishing reading this emo thread. Not all today, but eventually. Hopefully there aren't 300 more new pages by the time I get to this post!

I do that almost every single time I have a drink with ice in it. I'm often actually kind of disappointed when I'm in a restaurant and the waiter/waitress comes to refill my drink and it still has ice in it.
