    Starting up a conversation with a stranger is acceptable on a night out, and makes you seem suspicious any other time.

    what the fuck is a night out

    Beach Volleyball rules even if it is a fantastic way to break an ankle.

    Back when I wasn’t too old to do anything I enjoyed some beach volleyball from time to time.

    I hate talking to people because none of them are ever as smart or interesting as you, my best forum friends

    Anyway, I walked around Lisbon for 3 hours today with a stranger tasting random food while listening to her lament to my wife about her Brazilian brothers’ obsession with Bolsonaro

    The ultimate sport is naked wind surfing.

    I don’t know why I’m claiming this. But I believe it now.

    In defense of talking to strangers, I have a story.

    A while back there was a staging of Ghosts at a local theater here in Seattle. I happened to go with my dad to see it, on his birthday. It was the final performance, and we had excellent seats. Fifth or so row, dead center. We got to the theater early and made our way directly to our seats after my dad got some snacks.

    Curiously, as the auditorium opened to the public, there was already a woman sitting directly next to my own seat. Now y'all know I love the theater, and I love talking to people about how much I love the theater, so I decided to chat with this old lady upon sitting down next to her. I don't even remember what my lead in was, but it was probably something akin to: "Pardon me ma'am, I don't mean to bump you with my shoulders on purpose. They're just naturally broad as pair of barn doors. Nothing I can do about it."

    Fortunately for me, this seemed to tickle her, and we got to chatting while my dad, the consummate introvert, read the program and ate his theater snack. She asked me what brought the two of us here to see the show today. I tell her I adore the two leads, Mary Mastrantonio and David Strathairn, and that I was so excited to see such incredibly skilled actors chew scenery here in my own far-flung city. Also it was my dad's birthday, so I figured we should probably do something together to celebrate the day. My dad said nothing, continued to read the program.

    When I, in turn, asked the woman what brought her to come see the show on its closing performance, she replied that she was here to see her husband. She said he was in the cast, and that he was very nervous about the final show. Does your husband play old Jacob Engstrad, the orney, scheming carpenter? No, she replies, her husband plays the pastor. The pastor was played by David Strathairn! I was sitting next to the wife of David Strathairn, chatting with her about theater, while her husband watched us from the wings of the stage!

    Always talk to strangers, y'all. Sometimes the results can be banal, but sometimes they can be pretty fucking cool.

    I once chatted for a bit with the vocalist from nekrogoblikon outside the local venue they were playing at in like 2015

    I'm not incapable of talking to strangers sometimes

    I am honestly very bad at talking to strangers most of the time. At a party or something I'll occasionally go off on a jag and wake up the next morning with a half dozen new numbers in my phone and recollection of two of 'em, but that sort of casual conversation I've generally fallen out of practice with. It's exacerbated by doing most things with my partner these days, I think, when I already have at least one person to talk to then I feel less need to start introducing myself to strangers.

    Oh I never exchange numbers with anyone

    Too personal

    Oh wait raijin has my number, dang maybe that's not always true either.

    Basically I'm bad at turning casual acquaintance into friendship and maintaining them like a normal, functional person, so I just usually don't try

    You mean to suggest there are forms of communication other than posting? I don't follow.

    Is that the one where I never have to talk to a stranger IRL ever again? Because that would be rad, everyone else on Earth can fuck off to Mars or whatever

    i carried a free dresser home from a block away and the guy who had it helped me and on the way he told me about all the drugs and alcohol he used to abuse

    strangers: not even once

    I once bought a new sofa off of Craigslist and the guy helped me carry it to my apartment three blocks away and I know more about that dude than I do most of my friends.

    He had been in a lot of rehab!

    I am in the business of saving lives.

    One time like a decade ago I called out of work while driving in (I was very depressed at the time) and ended up parking at the end of a dead end street and taking a little nap in my car.

    And a guy who lived nearby came and brought me a cup of coffee and a packet of peanut butter sandwich crackers and we talked about him kicking his heroin addiction.

    Strangers kick ass, I think about that dude all the time, I hope he's doing good out there.

    The last unprompted spirituality question I had was with an uber driver and it's the only time I've ever been tempted not to give five stars.

    I dislike when my pizza delivery guy tells me to have a blessed day

    I don't want to be blessed by a god I was to get a boon from a mysterious spirit

    But really isn't that what pizza is? The most delicious boon
