I guess it's okay if a little kid looks for old people online. But if old people look for little kids online then people go crazy.

Aidan: if that guy from that movie was Ed Lauter or James Rebhorn.


I think you mean James Rebhorn or James Cromwell. Ed Lauter always gets confused with Pete Postelthwaite.

Eddie Ate Dynamite: You two are forgetting something. If the answer to every question is available instantly then what the hell do you talk about while you're sitting at a bar getting drunk and/or being old? After a while everybody you've ever met for more than 5 seconds has heard all of your cool stories and jokes, and knows all your lies and opinions. All that's left is arguing over the vagaries that nobody remembers for sure or somebody misremembers.

I guess you could go to a new bar and meet new people. But...nah. It's generally more comfortable to argue bullshiat with the people you already know. Just get rid of Google and smartphones. For the sake of conversation!


You're on fark asking what people argue about? Seriously?

log_jammin: Eddie Ate Dynamite: If the answer to every question is available instantly

If the answer to everything was available instantly, my question of "how can I have sex with three, redheaded, bisexual, big titted women at the same time" would have been answered a long time ago.


www.the-reel-mccoy.com

That one's easy to answer. The question is, where to get $1,000,000.

Omahawg: i hate that. i used to be the person who knew the answers to every obscurity.

yeah, but if you just tell them the answer they don't believe you, but if read it off of something and they take it as gospel.

then again sometimes you could threaten them with looking something up. "The movie was 'Battleground'. trust me, I remember." "no it wasn't, it was Battle Zone" "Battleground. I can look it up *reaches for phone*" "No no no...you're probably right..."

log_jammin: before I stopped going to the bar, one of my favorite pastimes was listening to the old men argue over things like "who was that actor in XYZ" or "That thing is a XYZ" "NO it's not! It's an ABC!" and while they argue I just sip my beer, and do a google search on my phone, and give them the answer. I enjoyed the "are you a wizard?" looks I'd get.

of course trying to explain streaming netflix on my TV comes from the internet and not cable get me the sign of the cross and holy water thrown at me.

i've never owned a cell phone out of such bitterness

I helped the guy who installed our bathroom find one of his lost friends. Turned out he had become a mayor of a small city in Kansas.

As a reward, he installed a USB power outlet for me and said thank you.

All of my exes are too cool to have FB accounts. They have Eros.com profiles.
