Damn. Now that is an answer.
Thanks, Amanda. I don't know how those **** got into the word tor****. 🤔
GAG doesn't allow use of the word. I suspect they don't want people talking about how to illegally download things, media. It's just a guess though.I was confused at your wording at first, but figured it out.
Seriously? That is truly bizarre.
They might want to crack down on movie pirating.You know how it went with Napster. Gov't got involved, lots of people got emails warning, file sharing sites got taken down.www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=torrent
Still. Just because some technology or behavior is called a certain thing, the idea of censoring a common word without looking at the context is insane. This is one of my problems with censorship, especially when it is done by robots.The word "tor****" has a freaking definition. "A strong and fast-moving stream of water or other liquid. A sudden, violent, and copious outpouring of (something, typically words or feelings)." It says nothing about behavior that might cut movie industry profits. Money, money, money.I'm gonna stop before I go on a full rant. LOL
lol. Yeah neither of us should go on a rent here. I'm not in a bad mood so why ruin a good one.But just one more thing... I think it's especially wrong when the word has an original meaning. It's sooo disrespectful to language to then ignore that and pretend like it no longer exists. Words stem from something. Often going way back in history.Fyi, @GirlsAskGuys, it's weird. T-o-r-r-e-n-t. It's not a promotion of anything. Nor it is crude or demeaning. It would be more fair to remove qs asking about how to do it, rather than eliminate a perfectly good word from original use.
Perfect reply, Amanda. Exactly.
. 🤛 .
Well said. That was interesting. Good for you.
Fair enough. 👍 You're an S in the MBTI then.Hey, unrelated, but can I ask you how you chose your u/n?
ohh okay hahah, that’s interesting I’m actually not that familiar with itlol yes… to be completely honest, it was due to lack of creativity, so I chose my favorite color (black) and combined that with something else I like, cupcakes!!😋
Ah I see. Most people don't like black food, for obvious reasons. Ever heard of Korean black eggs as an appetizer? They're buried and rotten. People have some strange ideas about what to eat.Well then speaking of black...How do you feel about wearing all-black outfits? ↗
yes I’ve heard of those, I’ve seen pictures of it and I’ve seen videos of people eating it hahaha I’m not sure if I’d be down to try it, it all depends on the smell… if it’s stinky then I know I won’t be able to try, otherwise I’m pretty open with trying new foods!😋😋And yes, I LOVE all black outfits, and most of the clothes I own are actually black hahaha
have you tried the egg?
Me too, I love black. Never tired of it. Sometimes I realize how someone else never wears is, and it seems so odd to me. But it's also cultural, generational; not just personality, preference. It's interesting to me, the why.Yes I have. I wasn't told what it was. It was just served to me. It looked odd, but I don't remember a smell, and yes, like you, if something smells bad I definitely won't eat it. I have a strong sense of smell and I smell all food before I eat. It tells me, most times, what it is going to taste like.The egg was not terrible. I ate the whole thing. After, they told me what it was. One person even said, "Wow, I can't believe you ate that." ha haIt wasn't tasty enough to eat again, though.
oh wow that’s interesting… I had the impression that it was all just about preferences, cause I could never do any bright flashy colors so I assumed it’s all based on personal preferences simply because you choose it based on what you like hahaha I actually am very fascinated with cultural foods… way more than the “modern and creative” foods there are nowadays so I’m intrigued about that egg now hahaha, especially now that you said that wasn’t any off putting smell…
Hey check this out. I do kind of relate to this guy. Have you have of Karl Pilkington? His best friend Ricky Gervais made a very unorthodox travel show out of forcing Karl to travel and put him in all sorts of challenging, uncomfortable, situations. It was like torturing him for TV.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhAvm8uFYHgIt was called An Idiot Abroad, if you interested.www.youtube.com/results
ooh interesting!! I have not heard of him actually but I’ll definitely check it out, it sounds like a fun show to watch😆
Yeah I really enjoyed it. So did my husband.It's great for people who like the idea of travelling but can't get out there.And you also laugh a lot. Poor guy. I like Karl, not Ricky. Though you also learn how to be a good sport, and that complaining is kind of annoying to others.
I will definitely check it out, and let you know who my favorite was!😆😆
Please do. I watched them all years ago and have forgotten my favourites, but would be fun to job my memory.

That was good. 🤛
Thanks, how about you?
Complex. Definitely.Though I find it impossible to explain why. (Ha ha.) It's a massive, broad, q, I think. I try to answer my own when I ask them, but sometimes I can't. (But many people don't here, so I don't feel all that bad.)If someone narrows things down to a specific context, I'm more likely to have a comment or answer. I like details, and specificity. I can say that I need a lot of mental stimulation and get bored easily. I tend to think (or write, or communicate with others, etc.) until I am too exhausted to think anymore. If I am doing menial tasks, I will keep thinking. So I like things that keep my attention and curiosity.
Good one! Sounds like me as well. Aries?
Good for you. Takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'. That's fucking perseverance.
I had a mate who used to tell me he was convinced I was either an Immortal (think "Highlander") or a Terminator.Must admit, I'm starting to wonder...
Yes, sounds like he's right.I have noticed men tend to be alright with the metal in them (after surgeries.) Kind of makes you feel like an efficient machine; maybe even bionic. Nothing wrong with that kind of attitude.
I'm not completely sure being a Terminator would be the best I could be. Although it could explain the sudden homicidal tendencies when I'm driving...
I believe that about you. I really does seem to fit. 👏
Aww thanks 😊
That is so lovely to hear. 💐 That's growth.
That's a refreshingly honest, and interesting, comment. 👏
Probably unrelated.Men are less language-oriented. And they haven't been brought up as much to express how they feel about things. They keep it internal, grit their way through, try to be self-reliant.I find this with most men, personally (although particularly younger and introverted.) If they can talk enough to express some things to me, over time I can often eventually fill in the others for them, and then they feel I understand them, and can speak for them, articulate the feelings they couldn't quite wrap their minds around. It's not uncommon at all.
That seems like an accurate observation. Aside from language I think plenty men express themselves better through other mediums. Ones like music or art, etc. If men are as visual as they're said to be then it makes sense to me.
I don't think it has to be based on others' opinions at all.
It has to be an opinion of others or it would be like checking your own test papers
Nice. I believe it. 🤛
Why? Does that seem straightforward to you?
I like it. 👌
How does that work?
In my lifetime I have raced motorcycles on dirt tracks, in the deserts, and on road courses. I have raced everything from high-performance go-Karts to NASCAR modifieds, dirt modifieds, and land speed vehicles.I have been in the Coast Guard as a search and rescue swimmer, primarily on the Eastern Seaboard, but also in Vietnam.I've been a volunteer firefighter for 25 years, and a Los Angeles Police officer as a trainer for high-speed pursuitI've worked with my dad as a carpenter building homes, for several years I was Vice President of an automotive firm that imported and sold foreign auto parts.I have been a parts manager for dealerships, a service manager for dealerships. I was in Porgie and Bess opera, sang in the choir at the Syracuse Dome for a national religious ceremony. I sing solos, duets, trios, and 4 man barbershop. I sign occasionally with an Elvis impersonator locally.Each year I put our 400 flags, flowers, and markers for my Lifesaving and Coast Guard veterans in cemeteries from Oswego, NY to Association Island.That's most of my history. But I live a simple life in a retirement community. Because of my arthritis, I am unable to do much physical activity, other than the occasional singing gig or the twice a year putting out flags etc and picking up.
Those things are impressive; but it sounds like a resume, not an introspection as the question is intended. You're a very performance-based person, eh?
Yes, always have been. Even today. As for the resume', I suppose you're right but it does give you some perspective into why I consider myself as complex.
The "simple life" sounds merely like circumstance, at this age.I don't know if "complex" is exactly the right word here though. I still think these fall into some other category. But I can't think of a word to sum it up and I shouldn't try. It's your life, and you know yourself best. It does feel like you were either born, or bred, to be a certain way. It's what drives you.
I was born to a lower-middle-class mother and father. Dad drove a milk truck to go to farms and pick up the farmer's milk. Mom worked for an insurance company and eventually bought the company from her employer when he retired. My grandfather was a hero back in 1901 when he and his crew saved some people on Lake Ontario in the middle of a winter storm. My work ethic came from both of my parents, and my desire to help others came from my admiration of my grandfather and my Christian values I learned as I was growing up.
I believe that.
tsk tsk. No soup for you! 🛑🍲
I try to be... but I have nuances...🙄...😏...🤪
How do you say that?
@amazing07 with my voice.
@amazing07 yes I would.
