    Wait... what anime is this? I'm thinking something from Kevin Smith, or maybe Hugh Laurie.

    Or of course an attractive intelligent girl heavily into computer games.

    I don't know, just lots of them? It just seems like in lots of them some dude will just stroll up and be like, "what, we're friends now, deal with it."

    God, one girl at my old work was so introverted. Just, like wow. I blame her scientologist upbringing.

    I mean, she'd be reading a book and a guy would come up and ask her a question or something? She'd look up and then look right back at the book and keep reading.

    It's been a slow and painful process but I'm slowly turning her into a functioning human being.

    "That's it, slowly move your hand up and down.... very good"

    D: Ugh, no.

    I don't find her at all physically attractive and god, that would feel like taking advantage of a mentally handicapped girl.

    She is the girl that I've expressed wariness in chat before about her falling for me.

    Yeah, I worry about the women in my like getting Stockholm Syndrome too.

    Wait, didn't John Hughs make Ferris Builer's Day Off? Now I need to go look that up.

    Yes he did, and okay that's an exception.

    Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

    I hate you so much right now.

    Uncle Buck

    Okay now you're just looking at IMDB.
    Wikipedia

    I had no idea he did Uncle Buck

    He's like an icon. One I've never heard of. Like the Jerry Bruckheimer of comedies my parents love and I find all right.

    I am so glad the web wasn't available when I was a teenager. And any BBS's I may or may not have posted to are looooong gone.

    I would have been like every emo poster stereotype rolled up into one. Though, in my defense, I had never heard of the term "emo" until after college.

    Also I never had to deal with a lot of the relationship problems you guys go on about as I have been dating then married to the same girl since I was 15. Weird how it turned out. And not a process I would recommend others to try and emulate. But it did indeed work out very well in the end.

    I have recurring fantasies where some guy comes up and just sits next to me at lunch or something and starts eating my food and opening up a conversation, and then we're friends from that day forward.

    How very japanese-anime of you. :P

    Wait... what anime is this? I'm thinking something from Kevin Smith, or maybe Hugh Laurie.

    Or of course an attractive intelligent girl heavily into computer games.

    Well of course.

    I kinda lean more towards the cute tomboy with a secret nerdy passion type when my fantasies are concerned(So I like a girl who can kick my ass, is that so wrong?), but still.

    ...I have got to find out how to start a conversation randomly with people I don't know.

    Tube's character can be both entertaining and annoying, but he does do his job well.

    I think the more crazy things he's done is a result of being 'ground down' by the forums and wanting to resign.

    Kidnapping is a terrible ice-breaker because every time you take off the gag to make conversation they try to scream.

    Baby, I just want to know what kind of music you like. I'll even turn the fader up so it's not too loud back there in the trunk.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    Wish fulfillment for shy Japanese otaku teenagers. The only way they'll ever have cool friends.

    Oh wait, did I just imply that JamesKeenan was a shy Japanese 13-year-old girl? Why, yes I did.

    Also, please, please excuse the picture. I had been up for a very long time. Very long. But OKCupid wouldn't stop bitching me out for not having more pictures, so I just took it with a camera phone.

    But, as you said, you can only seem to get em from girls cause dudes be so weird 'bout it.
