Be honest.


EDIT:And I know for many of you this fluctuates, so just kinda average it up on a year-to-date basis or something.

Now that I sit at a desk everyday, I have a lot of time to fill in between sales. I'm here more than once a day now. I don't know if that's something to be proud of.

I haven't really started regularly visiting this place until a couple months ago. Before then I came a few times a month

Lately, almost as much as Nawigacja GPS. It's saddening. It makes sense though- I'm working from home now and my job is completely computer-based. So now I can browse the BBS without being embarrassed about it.

Once or twice a day.

Since i'm a student, i'm pretty much on the internet either on my laptop or smart phone for most of the day and the bbs, along with the other forums that i frequent are on the list of sites that i tend to cycle through when i'm bored.

So i probably visit at least twice a day, maybe.

It's a tab on my browser and I spent a lot of time at my computer, I'll click the tab and scan the new posts quite a few times a day. I do that with all the bookmarks on my bar though, it's more out of habit than desire, I think.

Constantly. I do work from behind my computer so there's a tab open most of the time. Other times when I'm not working at my computer I visit the boards on my phone, just to see what's up.



Lately, almost as much as Nawigacja GPS.Ha! That's funny.

It'f funny how it took over a day for people to say that they lurk on a daily basis.

I go through waves. Sometimes I don't visit at all for several days, maybe a week. Other times, I stop by multiple times in a day. A lot of times I visit, I don't open any threads because the ones that have been posted in don't seem interesting, or the most recent poster is someone I dunno.

I lurk every other day. I'll log on, go through discussions and post where necessary.

Pretty much everytime I'm on a computer, it's in my bookmarks, along with a few other forums.

The question should run "How often do you lurk, and what is your goddamn excuse?"

I am paralyzed and intimidated by all the yelling.

Hihihi. Fancy that. A big boy like you (are you even a big boy, huh).

I am 6'6" of furry fury. Not like the weird kind of furry, just the unfortunate-amount-of-chest-hair kind.



Yeah, it's tough out there. Come on, get in the arena, put on your knuckledusters, we want some action!

I'm pretty terrible at being mean on the internet. Best I can come up with is quoting Rocko's Modern Life and pointing out misused apostrophes.


Talking about excuses, though... when you're 18 and a foreigner, you can always claim you're "working on your English" (though it wouldn't stand up to scrutiny, given the level of English practised here) or even "hey, I like the Offspring" (what the fuck??!).

But a native in their mid-to-late 20s... ? The "I like the Offspring" excuse is starting to wear pretty thin. The "my work is computer-based and I don't have to feel ashamed" cuts no ice, either. Your work may very well be computer-based, but you've got every right to feel ashamed, still.

A vague sentiment of nostalgia squeezing your heart gently, perhaps?

Absolutely. Refer to my post here (http://offspring.com/community/showpost.php?p=1449804&postcount=30). Also, I've lived in Argentina for about 6 years now and I'm pretty sure it's illegal for anybody over the age of 21 to listen to any Offspring record that isn't Ignition*.

*clause added solely for my own benefit; I don't care what anyone says-- I can enjoy the more refined wonders of Rachmaninoff and Ornette Coleman and Tom Waits-- but Ignition is still fucking badass.

to become aware of my own sensuality,
i first become fully aware of my own tactile sense.
in dim light, i close my eyes and remove my clothes.

do i lose his respect for being so wild?
hardly. he treats me like a rare and precious jewel.
and he goes through the day proud of the fact, that with me,
he is the world's most imaginative lover.

men pick amazing places for sexual adventure.
the wildest adventure proposed to me was in a bathtub which was full of jello!
all i could think of, was how many boxes it would take?
what would be the most alluring colour?
the most delicious flavour?
and how could that affect our oral explarations?
if the jello gets firm, would i bounce?

as you look around for what's new and different,
remember these three important weapons that should be learned to keep a man in love.
imagination, sensitivity to his moods and desires,
and the courage to experiment with new sexual techniques,
enticing situations and places.

lovemaking is physical, and so its its language.
suck, cock, fuck, and prick, are not bad words.
used in the bedroom by lovers to describe parts of the body,
and physical activities,
they are very proper indeed, and they distinctly enhance sex.
overhaul a prudish attitude.
don't whistle and stick up your nose, at least, not up in the air.

You should make a sequel, like

How often, on average, do you ________?

And keep the exact choices.

I know that it's not quite the same as the kind you learn in elementary school, where every other line rhymes.

I'm going to start lurking a little more. I'm running out of things to do in study hall... Other than homework, you know?
