I have a friend over here who does this constantly, according to him he's been all over the planet fixing everything from helicopters to problems with massive hydroelectric projects. His family has been around here for at least a hundred years and so have other families. Trouble with Bud's stories is that memebers of other families say he's rarely been out of BC and has only ever been as far as Alberta. We were discussing that one time saying he's a good fella because he only ever tells lies about himself and he's funny. He happened to hear that and spouted, "So I'm a legend in my own mind?" He got a good laugh outta that.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
So no-one really cares whether he's done what he says including him. He's got a good imagination, is a fair to good mechanic, and is entertaining.
As far as forums and chatrooms go, the longer people post, the more their character shows anyway, right? If they have a good character and are entertaining, who cares whether they tell lies about themselves?
I don't like ice cream that much, but I do like sherbet a lot. Lime sherbet the most.
Curio, sherbet's better than ice cream.
Well, Curiosity, I must never let you and my husband in the same room, then mention ICE CREAM, as he is a slave to it, and 'luckily' with no particular effort, I don't really like it much,
so I have saved him from working his way into those size 38 pants and 'up' if he were left to his
vices. He is Italian, and ALL food seems to be their enemy, at least on the scales.
I must be honest with you re: this board. I still feel like an outsider, 'different', and don't know
if I will ever feel confident that I belong, I delete complete posts from time to time, BUT,
something brings me back each day, so I will hang around hoping that I improve with age,
or maybe I will get fed up with 'myself' and just disappear, no sure yet. For the time being
I am enjoying myself, and everyone else here, (well, almost everyone).
I can't imagine people pretending they are someone other than themselves, and I would be the
first to 'believe' whatever they say, unless, of course it was preposterous information. I take
people at their word, and if they are giving me the runaround, it really is their problem, it doesn't
effect me at all in the end, as they are only hurting themselves. Have others had experiences like
this, that you know of, and do you think there are some who live a fake internet life
on this board.!!!!
Another thing I am curious about, I wonder, after time has gone by, how many people actually
'meet' others they have talked to on boards such as these.
For the most part what I post are my immediate thoughts when somone piques my interest. There is some inhibition on my part, sometimes I get a little excited and write out a response only to think better of it before I hit submit. Like when I realize I don't know what I'm talking about, and the fact that my brain can run wild sometimes.
When I first started posting, I did get very upset when Sanctus came on, and other religious
conversations, and I vented many frustrations, which I obviously had built up over a number of
years, and had not actually, (other than my husband,) said to anyone. I must have sounded like
an idiot, but as I got it all out, and at the same time began to 'know' Sanctus, the situation
definitely changed, I can see the subject much more objectively now, and I don't have those
feelings of 'hate' now. It was very therapeutic for me, and has taught me much about myself.
I think that happened with a few people. I tried arguing with sanctus too when I first arrived, and realised later I was rather impertinent and not helping at all. There are several posts in the various catholic threads I hope no-one ever reads again. Sanctus is a good teacher. He may even be right, who knows?
Yeah, he's an ok dood inspite of the religious mythery and fooferaw.
Sanctus and I are having a torrid affair.........Sorry Padre I just couldnt keep it a secret any long *sigh*
And Id meet ANY of you in real life.....just remember though Im a nutcase
Hey Self any time you want a nut case contest I'm up for it, you may have credentials but I'm an as yet undiscovered genius nutcase, possibly the nutcase of the century.
The chronological one. I have a charted position and a time of arrival in writeing with a stamp that puts me in this part of the spacetime thingy exactly eleven years three months twenty-two days and thirty-seven minutes and nine seconds before you. I sorry Self but I'v been a nutcase longer than you have. I didn't say I was a better nut case just an older one.
