Haven't you figured it out yet? Sleep is for weaklings.
Or as my buddy likes saying, seven days without sleep makes one weak.

Hi. This is Martha. She likes dull objects. She likes you too! Oh wait... I guess you'd better get some brain training on then.

Oh no, wait, I remember, in school we had this copy machine that I named Lassie. She was real smart and could a lot of clever things, but when push came to shove she was a real bitch. We spent more time fixing that thing than actually using it.

It's not actually my baby. It's like calling your S.O. by that; its a nickname, no relation required.
Did you guyses know that "monies" is an acceptable word for a variation of "money"?
I did not, until today, and I am pleased with my discovery.

Eh, being nervous is something that happens to everyone.
I was nervous when I got to school, since I didnt know anyone in my classes, but after a while of just being in the same room, you begin to loosen up.
Besides, having hordes of freinds is over-rated.

Agreed. I'd much rather stick with the two real friends I have than have hordes of fake ones. Try joining a club. That way you start off instantly with a similar interest.

Wow, you guys, I gave up on friends a LONG time ago.

...Just kidding! I just had to post because I looked...though that's kind of fallen apart by now. The "Count to a Million" thread has a better ratio than this one, mostly because people just go there, post a number, and move on. It's quick and easy, and there's no motivation to be a bad person (I don't curse) and view the thread out of spite because the objective of the thread has nothing to do with it.

I would say what I thought about people on the fora, but I'll just kill two or three of them instead.

Hmm, I wonder if you can make some kind of allegory for Kantian ethics with this thread... you probably probably could I reckon, but unfortunately it would be unbearably dull.
