It's just not the same without the pantslessness!

wasn't my first time at the dance.
Rednecks abound where I live. I'm not trying to be racist, but for the longest time it was hard for me to understand some black folks around here. Some of them would speak with a heavy redneck accent, but coupled with black euphemisms (ebonics) I was completely unfamiliar with. I had a job for a while when I was younger where I worked around a lot of black people who spoke as such, so I finally got used to it, and figured it all out. Which is good if you want to have any hope of ordering fast food around the town I live in.
I didn't think I had a southern accent until I listened to a podcast I was part of a few years back. I was appalled at myself. Now I attempt to make a concentrated effort to minimize it. That's a bit difficult when I'm surrounded by southern twang speakers though, including my own family.
My younger brother spent a year in Newcastle upon Tyne, and when he came back he had a bit of an English accent to many of the words he said. That took about a month to wear off. I was like WTF you're from bumpkinland you poseur!
Scientifically, I think one can make a case for this being true,Debatable, but not in this thread.Suffice to say, when there is a conflict of definitions en masse, I don't think government intervention is the best way to resolve the discrepancy.
I've got to admit, I've started doing better with the girls as of late simply because I've adopted more of an "I don't really care what people think" attitude. It's not completely true, but I was always the guy that would clam up, afraid that I'd say something wrong. Well, people can't exactly get to know you that way, and you're just seen as that dude that doesn't ever say anything. Now, I'm my normal, goofy, fun-loving self, and if they don't like my general demeanor, then they're obviously not the right one for me anyway.
That's not saying I show up shabbily dressed, or try not make a positive impression, because I absolutely do. I just don't try to be something I'm not, or worry about being anything other than who I am. Makes me wonder why I didn't figure that out years ago. Oh well.
Sounds more like a form of Asperger's.
The only way that would happen is if people got married too early. You should date/be engaged with someone about five years before marriage takes place. If you can date someone for five years and they still have personality secrets, well it's more your own fault for not probing deep enough.
And there's nothing in the ocean but sharks, right?
Risk aversion for too long, becomes living in a bubble of self denial. If you want reward, you have to take risk.
Eh. It's kind of forgettable. Pressing "UP" to jump? Wtf?
I never figured out how to do Gief's full-circle moves, so I never really played as him or anyone modeled on him.
