So I was looking at my join date t'other day (yes it's wrong, my original Duff account was registered on the 28th, with another account registered four days before that), and just had a quick think about just how long I've spent here.

I've just turned 20. When I registered I was 14 and a couple of weeks away from starting studying for my GCSEs. Now I'm in my second year at university with a shitty part time job on the side to fund life. I've been on this site for nearly a third of my life. I dunno about anyone else but that's quite scary, particularly when I think what I did then and what I'm doing now. God knows where I'll be in another six years - still on this site no doubt, just with a lot more money and a nicer car (hopefully...).

I dunno why I made this thread. Just wondering if anyone else has ever thought about how much their life has changed in the time they've been shitting over the boards I guess. Any stories?

Eh, I joined when I was 18, now i'm nearly 23. I had been at my job for 2 years back then, now i've been there for 7. Tempus fugit I guess.

P.S. - Nothing has changed over the five years i've been here, I still sit at the computer day in day out wishing I wasn't the person I am... And they all lived happily ever after, the end.

QUOTE (Massacre @ Mar 15 2011, 01:24 AM) *
Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

Before I came here I had a life but now I'm just getting it back again, you know actually socialising again. Work has picked up quite a bit lately too so I haven't had much time to play games.

Fuck, how depressing does that sound? tongue.gif

Let's see... April of '08. Holy shit I've been here 2 years. That's fucking insane given that I joined solely to find out when GTA IV came out, nothing more.

Hmm.. I was 17 and a month from graduation. My whole life was about to begin. I was working at Papa John's from then until I quit in January.
Well, now I just party and play my drums as much as possible, trying to progress with my band. No, that's not how I want to live forever but I've been constantly trying to get a job for 6 months now with no luck. So... I guess I'll just live it up for now. I'm pretty lucky when it comes to getting free weed and booze. I'm just gonna keep applying and hope for the best.

And no, I still don't regret quitting my job at all. It's been a fun 6 months.

That's about Higher (AS level) time, and I'm a qualified doctor now (sort of). Jesus fucking Christ, I've been on and off this site all through med school.

When I joined, I was in high school, and I had ambition. Now, at the age of 21 and alcohol-free, I have all the characteristics of a 60-year-old alcoholic, both in my quality of life and my outlook on said life. Thanks, guys.

She killed herself by swallowing drain cleaner a few months ago. I really need to change the bedsheets but she's kind of stuck to them now.

I agree that I'm sick, but it's working out pretty well for me, so no, I don't need help. You're still my BFF, marney.

I've been here for a while, I'm not exactly sure how long but I know I was in middle school back in Summer of either 2003 or 2004, when I played Vice City and just wanted to join a forum to discuss VC and get hyped for San Andreas.
Now I'm about to start my third year of college ...

I know I went from some lurker who posted rarely/occasionally, then I started just spamming/trolling by posting topic related pictures (in the Asylum of course), then found a niche in the State the Obvious game where I "met" people like Nanook and CowPig and SoW and etc., and I won FML almost one time so I guess I was popular, but then I guess now I've gone back to lurking and posting occasionally.

Fuck, reaching 6 years.

Well, then I was a 15 year old High School student with no ambition. Now I'm an almost 21 year old Uni student with no ambition, who spends his time, both at work and uni, making life as uncomfortable as possible for those around him. Honestly, life has turned out pretty damn well.

Glad to see i'm not the only ambitionless fuckup who has done nothing with their life. It's reassuring in a perverse, sexual way... Like Marney's bedwife exhibition.
