I've gotten into "internet fights" with both these guys, and come to think of it an "internet fight" is about the silliest damn thing ever, but anyway I did, maybe more of a skirmish than a fight, and I either lost miserably or won gracefully, who cares, the trick is to be able to take it on the chin and to have a laugh.

one is a curmudgeon, the other a contrarian. I suppose it gets a little predictable. But all are welcome

both exhibits symptoms of low testosterone and early prostrate problems....

blah blah blah....

Emotional Changes
In addition to physical changes, low levels of testosterone can affect you on an emotional level. The condition can lead to feelings of sadness or depression, and an overall decreased sense of well-being. Some people also have trouble with memory and concentration, and lowered motivation and self-confidence.

blah blah blah...

Hahaha, if only it were true, nothing wrong with my levels of T. I was blessed by the almighty in that department. In fact I'm worse than a dog with three balls when it comes to that particular male hormone.

You should be grateful that me and old nowonmai are here to brighten up this parade of dullards, fuck it, apart from that bit of banter this place does fuck all anymore.

Cheers anyway

What is funny is that FS probably had the highest levels of T when she was preggers than any males have ever achieved (that probably explains some of her posts back then). Keep posting fellow, I appreciate every one of them.

No, it got sucky because as a result of the internet fight (that you started) you deployed the gender/bully card, because you were still sore about Penta being given the boot. Then like night follows day Pelton was called in like some gone to seed, dementia suffering sheriff, fingered the wrong people which pissed them off and this led to a significant lessening of activity on the site. So yes, you were directly responsible for one of the three main reasons the "community" (lol) reduced its interaction. It's all there on the record but keep on saying it often enough I'm sure you'll revise history.

It's okay though sister, cuz I know what really pisses you off is that you can't find anything interesting to say.


Well, I've been lurking for a minute, waiting for you to say something fascinating and fabulous… and…. um…. well this is, um…. well, it's made of words, which is something. I guess. [Trying not to say anything mean and "bully" you.] How's that travel to dangerous places going? It's a lot easier without a newborn in tow, I bet you've got some really exciting adventures coming up. Let us know!

Well, I was pregnant with a boy, so I might have been getting a testosterone bath, no joke. Biology is weird. Bearing boys actually changes your brain permanently. Having girls, too, because you lose about 15% of your brain mass starting at about seven months pregnant, and it gradually rebuilds until you're about five months postpartum using your child's, and the father's, DNA. If you have a boy, your restructured brain really is influenced by heightened testosterone. There's a whole suite of subtle changes that have been documented anecdotally and scientifically, including slightly more aggressive tendencies.

No. The testosterone theme originated from RYP giving FF shit for being grumpy. Although it's quite quite possible "what's your T?" will replace "how much can you bench?" in bro pissing matches.

Interesting. Didn't know pregnancy changed brain structure significantly.

FlipFlop and Nowanmai are some of the credible posters and somehow get bashed.
I agree with RYP that this site is a decent link up point, but also agree with my bretheren
that it always backs the posers, liars and losers which is why so many credible people left here.

At the same time, there is a balance of what the site originally said "a site for mercenaries etc..."
and has a good compliment of civilian types who travel alot and add substantially.

But most of all (and kidding) Kurt is a bastard and still hasn't posted my photos.

Burn Kurt, Burn Kurt! (again kidding, I think he is a great guy but don't tell him I said that!).

Recent MIA list:

Fansy - thinned out after vlindsaygate
The Belgian - fuck knows?
Sri Lanky - FUCK KNOWS?

I reckon there's about ten regular posters here now, and regular means weekly amirite?
