Real life and the Internet

It is easy to pretend you are something you are not on the Internet. :stuck_out_tongue:

Very true, that. Unfortunately. The world’s going to hell in a handbasket, and the internet’s not helping. But hell, all of us are using it, and spend a good bit of time here instead of “out there”. If it weren’t for that awfully bright lamp they call the sun, and the water that comes from the heaven’s instead of a tap, I would probably be outside more often :wink: .

This thread is horribly, horribly depressing.

Yeah, I know the feeling. Online I come across as a bit of an asshole and a total loser with no job, no girlfriend and essentially no life (you’re nodding, aren’t you?). However in real life, I am a successful businessman who has so many beautiful girlfriends - all models - and I have no complaints about anything and I don’t while away hours contemplating the meaning of life, the universe and everything… and I’m also quite honest :D. I also don’t start my dialogs with unfunny (bordering painful) paragraphs only to then say something serious as I will demonstrate.

It’s interesting how some people can get carried away with online personalities. But it’s easy to understand why. It’s like video games where there is a lowered (sometimes non-existent) sense of responsibility. But that’s not a luxury that real life gives you.

You have NEVER been to the US (not even as your internet persona), have you?

The whole website is a farce, but there is an element of truth that makes this article funny. I love the author’s photo, classic ;).

Since it is a farce, I can laugh at this. In real life being a loser is not funny :frowning: . It is like the movie There is something about Mary. It was very funny, but horrible if it actually happened.

It should be noted that the onion is just a humor publication. Its not a news source. Of course its a farce.

Hehe, good point. Except I’m not sure that life offers it to them, more they take it regardless. :wink:

I thought the same thing when I saw it. I was actually sympathizing with the guy as I was reading it but then when I saw the photo I changed my mind. He looks like a big gay biker. :stuck_out_tongue:

What I want to know is how you seduce someone over the internet. Not that I’m looking for tips or anything (shifty eyes), I just don’t think it’s possible.

Sure it is, I laugh at myself all the time :D. No wait, I laugh at my own jokes :-?. I think that’s different :P.

Have you not heard of married couples who first met on the internet. I know…it sounds crazy. I am sorry that I do not have any tips for you.

Actually now you mention it, Solocreator who is on Elysiun met his girlfriend online and now they live together.

And then there’s my Dad meeting other women online so I guess it’s possible. I keep forgetting about webcams and stuff. We live in a very strange age indeed.

Aw :(. Ah well, I guess I could always try and seduce someone the old fashioned way. Now where did I leave my stockings?

I thought that article was hilarious. It’s sad that some people probably are like that, but they’ve only got themselves to blame.

Not to forget their bad childhood, the big fat kid who stole their lunch in kindergarden, and then the football phags who beat him to a pulp in highschool. Not to forget his neighbor’s dog, who took him for a tree every now and then.

Hank Scorpio from the Globex Corporation, eh? I knew I recognized that from somewhere.

Nice catch! :smiley:
