    no need to apologize Firi. that kinda sums up America. everyone should be able to realize the faults in their country (though a lot of people I know personally don't see any to America. but that's when I just shale my head and walk away)

    We have plenty of venomous critters in America, plus bears, wolves, mountain lions, and ladybugs!
    What empire in the history of the world has been so entertaining as America? We invade countries that 90% of our population couldn't find on a world globe if their lives depended on it, our Electoral College system by which we elect our President and arguably the most powerful person on Earth is something none of us fully understands, and all we really want is the rest of the world to like us.

    Unless you eat them and die! :D
    But yeah, true, that's one difference I keep forgetting. Thanks for letting me know :)

    That's a beautiful description - and one that I, as an outsider, would definitely agree with. :D

    Good morning, old folks! How are you all doing on this fine morning?

    I've had a full breakfast, complained about young people to good ol' Lady Cyllíeth, and cancelled my internet service contract without being conned into a new one (on the phone!). I'm so proud about how I'm adulting and just wanted to let everyone know. :D

    MAGIC! :cool:
    The contract will expire in March next year and I just wanted to make sure not to miss the 3-month cancellation period like I did last year. My 6k internet connection is just not bearable any more, not if I can have up to 60k for a lower price.

    It most certainly does, which is why I spent almost the entire rest of the day doing nothing worthwhile (apart from transplanting my PC hardware into a new case), or 'chilling', all young and hip. :D

    ... which, then again, is why I'm going to adult some more today by going to the office >_>

    I only adult when I have to work, and even then I act all crazy and stuff just to see my coworkers reactions. when I'm at home it's all non adulting for me :D

    Why does life seem to speed up as I get older?!?!!?? At 41 I figure I'm twice as busy as I was in my 20s.
    I am firmly against adulting any more than is strictly necessary. :D
