I'm bored.

Tell me something interesting. Do it anonymously if you wish; I'm screening comments but will unscreen if you tell me to. Or if you're nasty and I think it'll be funny to unscreen.

Humans are amazingly consistent when they flip coins. If a human repeatedly flips a coin, not taking care to make each flip different, always starting with the same face upwards, the results will be closer to 60% / 40% than the expected 50%/50%.

Yep, still in love with someone and she doesn't know it. That's not the interesting thing though, the interesting thing is that she's totally focussed on having kids... and I would. How scary is that, particularly at my age and with my outlook?

The big problem is that I'm /so/ not the right one for her, which is why I've kept it from her - I just can't take the risk of fucking up her life, even if she was interested, and I think that she isn't (but I'm dying to know).

It's been going on for over a year. I think I'm going to have to get another job because I work with her and I can't bear to see her every day... except I live for seeing her every day. Despite eveything I'm actually helping her back into the dating scene and giving her advice on how to find a decent guy (like I'd know). How ironic is that?

Anonymous, so you can unscreen if you like.

Doesn't she deserve to make that call for herself? Would just asking her out really fuck her life up so thoroughly?

Simon Cowell is shagging Cheryl Cole.

*heh* It wouldn't surprise me that much, except that I'm not convinced she would. And besides, I hear he's dating some bloke at the moment.

Two of your close friends (I specifically mean moral vacuum and margotmetroland), tell you you look divine then turn around and snigger at how tight your clothes are and how fat your ankles are. Lots of people feel sorry for you.

Oh dear, Anon; I think perhaps you're the one who needs some sympathy, huh? Perhaps you didn't get enough hugs when you were a child? Perhaps you still don't?

And Anon is ugly and smells of wee!

That's entirely possible, yes! Certainly Anon doesn't know me, or my friends, very well!

Tight clothes and fat ankles? Is that all? They can't have been listening when I said: Men don't go out with you because you're too desperate; you only fancy gay men because you can't face rejection from straights; you dress like a student/frump/slut; you hang out with emo kids in the vain hope of shagging them, like a raddled old Cougar; you cook in order to sublimate your maternal urges; your tattoo looks like an albatross shat on your shoulder.

I'm sure there are more things I could find to snigger about behind your back if I really put my mind to it. Any requests?

From: [identity profile]
Oh, but it's the fat ankles that really keep me awake at night, you know! But maybe you could throw something in about my limited intelligence, my lack of popularity, the untidiness of my flat, and the fact that I smell of wee too? Just to cover all the bases, y'know! :-)

I completely forgot the "living in squalor" bit. Damn. Although I'm sure Moz would have reminded me next time we got together to rip you to shreds.

By the way, I've just coined the phrase "gigankles", which is now making me giggle helplessly.

Yeah, I think I know who this is and don't think for a minute you get off lightly either.

Ooh, Anon wars! I think you two need to identify yourself as Anon1 and Anon2 though, otherwise this could get confusing!

Droll attempt at "wit", uncloak at your leisure.

The Anons support each other in email?
From: [identity profile]
*heh* Quite probably yes.
To be fair, I have, a couple of times, had email from lurkers, supporting me. I laughed.

Interesting thing, "back channel" support. Sometimes, it is a good option, but mostly I think public support is better.
From: [identity profile]
Well, it's fine for providing a moment of warm fuzzies, but public support is better for al-round vindication, I think.

I have to concur. Also, if you will, feel free to uncloak my comment outside this thread. It MAY provide some amusement to others.

Do you mean that Anon 1 wears tight clothes and has fat ankles; or that I slag them off as well? I don't mind which, I'm just confused!

I know, right? _And_ I asked for interesting stuff, and I really don't feel that qualifies.

wow, Anon1 and 2 really need better friends.

Yes! Or indeed, just _some_ friends!

In honor of the anon war, I would like to illustrate a dorky math thing with llamas:

You are a llama-based entrepreneur with several llama paddocks. The first paddock contains 1 llama, the second paddock contains 2 llamas and so forth until paddock #N contains N llamas.

Add the number of llamas in all paddocks to get your total flock size. Next, just for a hoot, cube the number of llamas in each paddock (but don't cube the llamas). The sum of those cubes equals the square of your flock size.

Now there's a cocktail conversation killer. :)

I spent about an hour today trying to help someone learn how to draw noses. Just noses.

Date: 2009-11-02 06:29 pm (UTC)

I can't draw noses; any tips? (No pun intended!)

Mind you, I can't really draw anything else, either.

Well you did ask for it...

You smell and your mum dresses you funny. And I'm gonna tell everyone that!

Oh that's it.... you make rubbish scones! I have had to choke down every single one I've ever eaten at your house and then made sick noises when you've been out of the room. In fact, you might find some half-digested scone down the back of your sofa!

That's the main reason we use pre-linguistic babies; so they can't tell anyone.

Blimey, that definitely is interesting! What brought that on? Are you going alone? Tell me more! (I'll rescreen this after I've hit reply, in case you don't want it to be public knowledge!)
