girls prefer someone more confident and self-aassured.
So good of you to speak for half of the human race.

The opinion of a gay man here. I'd rather have Hermiod than you, captcalhoun. Hermiod makes me laugh.
two goldfish in a tank. one says 'you man the guns, i'll drive'

heard about the Soviet snooker player? he's called Inoff The Red.

How many Borg does it take to change a light bulb? Darkness is irrelvant. Light-bulbs are irrelevant. You will be assimalated. Resistance is Futile.

why did the cat run away from the tree? it was afraid of the bark.

a man crawls out of the desert into a town market place. He crawls to the first vendor and begs, 'Water...water..'

the vendor says, 'Sorry, I only sell custard.'

the man crawls to the second vendor along. 'water...water...'

"Sorry, i only sell cream.'

at the third table, the man once again begs, 'water...water...'

the vendor says, 'sorry, i only sell hundreds and thousands.'

the dying man says, 'why does no-one have water?'

the vendor says, 'it is a trifle bizarre...'


why doesn't Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez have a dog? he can't hang on to a lead.

In all seriousness, while I'm sure tsq might enjoy having a bunch of guys and Philo () fighting over her, it goes against what she said in the how do ladies like to be treated thread.

Re: Are you awesome?

Oh boys, I'll take you all. You can stay in my Man-Pen, with David Tennant, Hugh Jackman, and Johnny Depp (they're allowed out to make movies, occasionally).

In all seriousness, I don't mind the joking, it's when people cross the line into Creepsville, which seems to be happening a bit too much around here lately, that I get annoyed/uncomfortable -- and I think most of the ladies of the BBS (though I wouldn't presume to speak for all of them) probably feel the same way.

Re: Are you awesome?

Admitting you're awesome is admitting almost that you have a big ego. I don't feel I have a big ego, so I'm just content.

Re: Are you awesome?

^I disagree. Realizing those things about yourself that are awesome has nothing to do with ego, it has to do with recognizing yourself for who you are, and acknowledging that there are aspects about you both positive and negative. Knowing oneself in such a way, I think, helps one to remember that other people also have both positive and negative traits, and that it's important to find the good in even the most difficult of individuals.

If you believe your awesomeness makes you better than other people, if you go around boasting and bragging, then you have a big ego. But if you find things within yourself that you feel good about -- aspects of your personality or behavior that you are confident in, that's not ego. Despite my post about my own awesomeness, I am in reality a humble person -- the things I've gone through taught me patience and humility at an early age. I could make a list just as long of my negative traits.

But it's more fun to list the positive ones. So, I think everyone ought to take a minute and list the things that make them awesome. Find just one thing about yourself that is genuinely cool -- everyone has something (even if they think they don't). So long as you remember that everyone else has some awesomeness about them too (however well it might be hidden), then you don't risk becoming an egotist.

I only loathe my physical appearance. The rest of me is fairly nifty.
