    DUDES!!! Just reiceved my signed photo of JAY LENO!!!

    ...why?

    Because i requested one ;)

    Same question.

    If it clarifies the question, I ask because Jay Leno appears very much to be a vapid chump.

    Join the campus newspaper! It's a great way to meet people and was probably the most fun I've had at University.

    Also join your school's facebook group, it's a good way to just keep up when events and such are happening.

    When you sit beside someone, especially in a smaller class, introduce yourself and talk with them a bit. It's still early in the year, so people are usually pretty outgoing.

    You're gonna have to be a little more proactive when it comes to making friends and meeting people than you were in high school, but on the flipside people are usually easier to get along with and start talking to once you're in college.

    I've heard that leaving your dorm door open so every stupid motherfucker in the world can waltz in and ask you if "y'all like football?" when you're busy trying to figure out how to heat up a can of soup in the microwave when you happen to own no bowls but you've already opened the damn thing shit, is a good way to socialize.


    Yeah, I didn't make a lot of friends in college.

    I didn't meet anyone living in the dorms. Everyone that lived there was an asshole. I met people in my department, and I also met people by getting involved in my student organizations. Also the bar and parties.

    I just saw Matt Hales (Aqualung). It was great. I even went "backstage" (the hallway by the kitchen because it was a small venue), got a poster signed, talked to him a bit, and got a picture with him.

    But I'm really pissed. I wish I had a real camera, because I use my phone, and it just doesn't do. I basically recorded the whole performance in video, which was a stupid idea. I thought "I don't care about the video quality, just as long as the sound is good." because he was making all this funny conversation and stuff between songs. Well, turns out the sound blows more when there's video involved. I should have just recorded sound. Ugh. I wouldn't care so much, but the whole time I was thinking "I want some way to remember this better."

    I guess his music, signed poster, and the picture will have to do. But damn man. He even improved a song about otters! He's great.

    Also, yes, new 360s appear to be rock solid. I've got a launch one though. That'll teach me for adopting early.

    Maybe I will lay down the monies for a PS3, as a Blu-Ray player that has gaming potential which I will never use. Does it come with a remote control or do you have to buy one separately?

    I have the best internship EVAR.

    Basically, I get to go pretend to be a city working and paint some marks on the street. It's akin to that scene in Ghostbusters 2 where they pretend to be city workers while examining the slime river. They even provided me with and orange vest!

    Word is that they're working on a BluRay player for the 360, despite what Microsoft said in the past.

    Internships are basically slave labour though right? Or do they actually do something decent and pay you?

    :lol: In this particular case, the sleeve of the book doesn't match the cover--which is to say, though I'm pretending to be a city worker, my task is actually tantamount to street art. And in this case, I guess also literally.

    I'm socially retarded tooo but I made a friend recently wooooooooo! It's not about going to the parties and clubs (I still don't and I fear going outside nore do I know anything of what people like to do such as sports movies names of places and streets and names of people favorite music places to eat at... um...)

    anyways I dont know how but I made a friend... Wait how is this helping you? Wellllllll!!!! My advice is you cant save yourself from being a dumbass socially so your only hope is by going to your class and being like "haro" also if you act fearful people will be like "oh my gawd he suckz" then go away so you gotta supress your fearz BEST PLACE EVAR

    alsooooo my own motto is always be absurdly negative so you'll NEVER BE DISSAPOINTED!!!

    but dont be emo thats bad also dont act negative to others because thennn it doesn't work you can only tell yourselfff that it will fail! That way you'll feel better when you fail and have absolutely nothing to lose! because you have nothing in the first place and suck at life anyways already

    I didn't get a remote with my PS3, so i think you need to buy it seperate. Even though it looks stupid, the controller works fine for navigating through the Blu-ray menus. Iron Man looks totally badass on blu-ray!

    ...and there's your problem.

    You could join 5000 damn clubs and go to 5000 events and if you don't talk to a single person, well, of course it's going to be hard to make friends!

    Where's the magic in making friends?

    Talking to them first!

    You don't have social anxiety or anything, do you? If you are indeed "socially retarded", it's probably of a result of just.....not talking to people! Find somebody somewhat unintimidating, and just start chattin' it up with them....about anything. You're in class? Talk about the assignment. The teacher, the school, what classes they're taking, what you've heard about the class, the teacher, the school, your major, the weather, the art supply store, how their prices suck, and have you found a better place to buy acrylic, and speaking of, do you know of a good brand to buy? etc etc etc etc etc

    If i've learned anything from living by myself in Toronto it's that being sociable is absolutely vital to your survival.

    Seriously, if I didn't go out and meet people on buses/subways/events like the Toronto Film Festival i'd be dead in the water. I never get why people struggle to just go up and talk to somebody. What's the worst-case scenario? The person will think you're a wierdo and walk off? Who cares? There's thousands of people in the city, just pack up your shit and try again elsewhere.

    The same applies to relationships. Have you ever wondered why all of these assholes out there end up with gorgeous women? It's because they just keep on trucking like the goddamn energizer bunny. Eventually somebody's going to buy into whatever bullshit they're selling, and when it happens BAM! new friend/girlfriend/whatever.

    I guess what i'm trying to say here is stop being so afraid and just do something about it.

    You know the whole, "ladies like confidence"? Yeah, that's a huge part of it.

    Assholes have (sometimes too much) confidence...and guys that never go up to anybody to talk to them...well, where do you think they end up?

    I think I'd be much more attracted to a guy who comes up to me, makes eye contact and starts talking than a guy across the room who gives me a nervous half-smile and quickly looks down, suddenly becoming very interested in the marks on his desk.

    One time I was at this bar with a couple of friends of mine, and there was this guy working his way through the bar top. Like, literally going from one hot chick to the next, trying to buy her a drink and "see where things go."

    This guy was quite possibly the biggest douchebag in the planet. He went through five women back-to-back before some girl bought what he was selling and actually left with the fucker.

    So yeah, confidence is key. You can be the biggest jerk-off on the face of the earth and people will still buy into it.

    Eh, I dunno.

    That last "hot chick" could've not seen this guy go from girl-to-girl, asking around...

    Maybe she just wanted some ass! It's not like they had a loving, committed relationship after that (I can pretty much guarantee you).

    Hell, maybe she was a total bitch, and they were a perfect match.

    If you're talking about committed, emotional relationships vs. purely physical relationships, I mean, there's probably a noticable difference in how much a "confident asshole guy" will get of either.

    At least I would imagine so.

    Can anybody recommend me a color good printer, by the way? I want to avoid the 3-in-1!!! bullshits. I guess my price range is under $150.

    I'm wondering if I should even bother buying one - I hardly ever need to print anything. I'd just like the convenience. :(

    I have to print text every now and then, and graphics about half the time. I'd maybe be printing something....once every three weeks, on average?

    I'm pretty sure the guy just wanted some ass, hence hitting on women at a bar, so if that was his intention, mission completed.

    But yeah, this girl have to be blind, deaf and mute to not know that this guy had been shot down four times prior. He was one loud motherfucker.
