As for the sensitive millennials that I continue to offend, please understand ;)

I am from a different generation/born in a much different time.  I view this form of interaction quite a bit differently than you facebook, twitter, tinder using folks do (not my cup of tea).

It doesn't register as "real"/humane to me in the least, so I can be pretty tone deaf when it comes to my level of empathy.

I don't post here to coddle nor to be coddled by others.

I'm simply killing time and enjoy being able to help some in the rare occasion when I am able.

No harm meant here.

Rant/vent away...

Hmmm. It sounds suspiciously like you are asking for empathy considering your special situation. That's pretty snowflake-y of you.

My apologies (in perpetuity).

If it has to be explained to you, it means you missed it ;)

I don't think you offend anyone. Except the time you were chastising a dead couple who had fallen to the deaths for not having funeral insurance. While family members were posting in the same thread.

You just seem dreadfully out of touch with real human interaction. If you didnt already mention it I would guess people like you or Ptolemy had been in Korea for 20 plus years. It really, really shows.

ME: What's going on over at Waygook these days? ...oh.

Stop feeding the trolls!

1. Pecan gives these replies because people get mad.

2. Ptolemy is a troll, but also, as someone with an evolutionary anthropological background, I can tell you that he/she is supah supah wrong-uh. Probably the kind of person who uses the term "Paleo" incorrectly all the time, Ugh.

Anyways, thanks for the Overwatch game. Nice to see there are still so many good resources on this site.


P.S. Loki88, damn, don't let your kid die for the sake of family harmony! If she does it again, pretend you're gonna pop him in the freezer :D (kidding. Hope your kiddo's gonna be okay.)

I'm 40ish, and yet still fully aware that on the other side of any keyboard is a living, feeling human being. I personally don't believe that is a generational specific concept.

I really want this deep fried garbage now, but I don't think it exists in Korea (?) and though I've made cali rolls before, I've never deep fried them myself.  Ugh, crispy goodness with eel sauce and spicy mayo.

Yeah.  I wouldn't characterize it as you have above, but point taken.

My level of tact and social grace only continues to diminish as time goes by...

I hope many today, especially those that have started a family, have a term-life policy.

If not, do your spouse and dependents a favor and get it today.

Putting them in a position to panhandle isn't cool.
