Well, I would like to point out that you never even told us your gender. So I think that we have the right to say:

"Great, ANOTHER person who won't give us a straight answer..." :P

Man, I hate not knowing. :(


He referred to someone as a "female friend". I'm pretty sure only guys do that. Just for future reference.

Actually, I don't remember ever having a strong impression that parkaboy was male... males tend not to call themselves "boy", but rather "man" or "dude". The name "parkaboy" sounds more tomboyish than masculine.

But this is teh blagonets and I don't much worry about y'all's genders and sexeses.

I don't know about this thread but I'm pretty sure you had the 1337th post in the confessions thread (the dude that runs marathons whose handle I don't remember right now had the 1337th reply... or was it the other way around... and for some reason I can almost remember this but not my mother's birthday...).

Okay, so they're bestowed. Thank you...all the other fora I've been a member of have had user-set titles. I suppose I'll put something about testicles in my signature then, to clear up the gender issue.

Oh hey. I have come to this thread by a long and arduous road of poor reading comprehension, but I have finally arrived and am eager to make a good impression and so win your hearts (this is just the next iteration in the long cyclic process of scaling back my goals).

My name is Scheaume. Actually my last name is Scheaume and my first name is Venerable. Why not let's call me Scheaume or V.S. or really whatever whimsical words we wish.

A little about me, I wanted to be a sherpa but mom said "Get a real job". Now I am trying to pick one of those. Ideas?

I think there is a minotaur on the internet and if you surf long enough you will find him. Minternaur!

Also I love xkcd unconditionally and without reservation (so I hope you take walk-ins). It is just so wry and kitschy and mellifluous, how can I resist? Also spinning-counterclockwise and I-forget-small-talk are like 100% classy concentrate.

Anyway that's all there is to know about me. The rest is essentially details and I look forward to getting to know the rest of you better and forging strong bonds of online community. Forging bonds? Isn't that illegal?

I wanted to be a writer, but mom said, "Get a real job." So now I'm a musician.

I think the ninja/pirate route is probably lucrative.

What do you play, Ren? I could click back a few pages and find your entry in the introductions where it probably says, but...the cursor, it is so heavy.

That's what I'm saying now.

And clearly, the proper use of a condom is to blow it up like a balloon and bat it around.

One guy in my PDHPE class back in school tried to stick the whole condom over his head, not only did it get stuck but he got lubricant all through his hair. :D

Yeah, sometimes imagination can get the better of you. I did not even know that Scheaume knew that the rice crisps were my favourites.

But make believe condoms don't work at all, let alone when they're in their make believe wrappers.

I just assume rice crisps until someone tells me differently.

I'm starting to get confused as to where these rice crisps are. Inside make-believe condom wrappers?

I do not think I would be munching condom-chips. Scheaume brought them in an attempt to stop us from saying condoms. Condoms.

Yeah, and I have the right to be an annoying hypocrite (I was joking by the way). It's in the U.S. constitution, right after the right to alienate one's allies and right before the right to tease people who live in Canada.

Hey now. It's true that if you die in Canada, you die in real life--but it's also true if a Canadian kills you anywhere.

(Or should be. *sticks out tongue*)
