    When some consider males and females two different species who happen to be compatible for procreation, is it not wise to ask members of the other species what makes them tick.

    Males just gossip about females and get most things wrong. And vice versa.

    Some males react well to blunt to the point questions. Some function only with deadlines. Ofcourse you already have done research online with his name?

    Touché. Still, you should probably avoid labels like "gamer guy", like we're all cut out from the same cloth.

    Gossip is the lowest form of discourse. Also, in my experience, guys don't really gossip much about women.

    Actually I chose my words carefully. This is in fact a gamers site and me calling you guys that is not an insult. Why do you think I joined this site in the first place? Although I should have said "gamer guys and a few gamer chicks" .

    Some do, some don't. I don't know the percentages, because as a rule of thumb I don't hang out with the ones that do, so the fact that I don't know many that gossip about women perhaps doesn't mean that much.

    I'm okay with being labeled a gamer guy, though. I play games and I'm a guy, it seems accurate enough. I wonder what Nalia would say if someone called her a gamer chick, though.

    Nalia would probably complain about helping the poor and downtrodden. Now, Nakia might have something different to say. :p



    I don't mind being called a gamer guy. It's better than being called a gamer geezer.

    The point wasn't that there's anything wrong with being called a "gamer guy". I don't think anyone would find that insulting. Just that one should be careful with such labeling with regard to unrelated things to avoid unnecessary implications. Being a gamer has nothing to do with our likes and dislikes. Notwithstanding the fact that we all enjoy games, we're all very different people. I like to think that's part of this community's charm. :1eye:

    Keneth is a genious. Love him or hate him for that fact. I am not quite sure :D

    Btw I have given up on making the lyrics for gamer guy using Sk8ter boi.
    BBtw I don't know what to think about the movie gravity. Somehow I really don't like it, but somehow it is sticking.

    I could ask Nakia her opinion on the gamer chick thing if you like ... I have her on FB.

    Seems you are the only one who objected Kenneth ... although that kind of talk only encourages me. :p Unless I start getting bitten by a dragon I'll assume I haven't stretched the limits.

    What was sticking to me was the absolute level of annoyance at Bullock's moaning, yelping and general uselessness.
    That and the fact that I just can't get over the flagrant disregard of physics in the movie.

    Why not, would be nice to have her over again :)

    Our resident pink dragon is generally pretty civil and rarely bites.

    I object to pretty much everything. It wouldn't be much of a conversation if all we did was agree on everything. :shake:

    What stuck with me was that the lady is 50 and still fine. :p

    Yah, that is a stupid song although if a person is happy in general I think that's great.

    This was the first time I've heard this song and I still don't get it. Was it played constantly on the radio or something?
