I progressed on to freethought boards after I spent most of my time posting typo-ridden posts as a thirteen year old on videogame forums. IIDB really opened some doors for me intellectually.
Naturally the next step in quality discussion was RnR, and here I am now.
My favorite thing about these forums is that I can find like-minded people who share my thrilling sense of adventure and intrigue in life. People who possess the same qualities that I greatly admire about myself.
Over time we develop a bond in fellowship that just resonates, you know. Like this one time some of us were almost able to drive a schizophrenic poster to suicide. It’s just those great strides in achievement that really cultivate strong friendships. Like you think, “Hey, when we put our efforts together look what we can accomplish.”
That’s what makes it worth it to me.
What board or fora are we most likely to find you in and what will you be talking about? RnR, mainly. I can usually be found debating politics and discussing secular activism.
If you had to spend your life marooned on a tropical island with three people that you’ve met online from this community, who would they be, and why?
Pavlov’s Dog, Red Dave, and TySixtus.
ETA: I answered this question assuming that the age of consent laws in America still held.
I know it’s a cliche answer, but the first name that comes to mind is George Carlin. I usually hear this along with nothing but praise for the guy from the same zealous atheists that Carlin would have most likely laughed at and mocked, but I’d like to think that he would have merely sneered at me.
Here we go…
I will probably never summon the energy to write a book, but if Chuck Klosterman lets me I will be happy to plagiarize his work one day.
Life is a misery-inducing well of nihilistic chaos, or so I read in a poem once. We’re all going to die with no significant meaning one day.
In the meantime I just plan to aim for reading some good books, enjoying some good jokes, and having some meaningless sex. That’s all anyone really needs.
That said, I don’t have a poison that springs to mind or an established amount. I’d just say that I know it’s enough when I start claiming to be a doctor to anyone who will listen.
