  No, and I hate you and every political policy you stand for.
 
2017-11-21 03:35:04 PM  
For all my tough talk of the need to suplex people through tables on here, I only rarely do it in real life.
 
2017-11-21 03:37:17 PM  
No, not really. I'm am overall genuine person.  I am what I am.
 
2017-11-21 03:48:49 PM  
Naw I am the same snarky person here and there.
Probably why I am happily divorced
 
2017-11-21 03:53:29 PM  
Well I'm more of a person than a series of letters and punctuation on your monitor, but the general attitude is the same.
 
2017-11-21 03:59:19 PM  
In real life I'm much more attractive.

I hardly ever use walls of text in real life, but I sometimes use gifs.

/Don't ask!
 
2017-11-21 04:34:35 PM  
Online there's a lot less actual barf.
 
2017-11-21 04:37:41 PM  
Judging by how often my wife hits me in the back of the head for saying something snarky or rude....no.

If I were, I'd be dead.
 
2017-11-21 05:05:26 PM  
I am kind of a big deal......
 
2017-11-21 05:31:22 PM  
I'm the same, but I like to test lines of thought here on Fark to get a wide variety of responses, and as such tend to push arguments further here than I would in person.

Same. Though sometimes, I think this place brings out the worst in me.

Depends what you think "real life" is.
 
2017-11-21 05:54:22 PM  
Anonymity + internet = asshole, so no, I'm not the same person. IRL, I bet every one of you would either like me or not find me interesting enough to care about paying attention to. And I'm not a Trump supporter despite having that label here simply because I criticize liberal Democrats.
 
2017-11-21 05:57:13 PM  
I can't post images in real life so I guess I am kinda different on Fark...

<thats not how any of this works!.jpg>
 
2017-11-21 06:01:42 PM  
Yes I am.  My real name isn't even TDYak.
 
2017-11-21 06:03:04 PM  
There's a little more to me than what I post here (which is mostly me just joking around) but I try to make it a point to not say anything to someone directly that I wouldn't say to them in real life.
 
2017-11-21 06:03:22 PM  
Hell yes I'm different in person, I don't share my stupid thoughts and opinions with my friends unless forced to.
 
2017-11-21 06:05:51 PM  
Who told you I was a person?!
 
2017-11-21 06:06:25 PM  
Fark is real to me dammit.
 
2017-11-21 06:07:59 PM  
we are what we pretend to be
 
2017-11-21 06:09:26 PM  
I'm more talkative in real life, but still shy. I try not to be mean in either place.

/taller IRL, too
 
2017-11-21 06:16:50 PM  
No.  I crack jokes, im a music snob, I like to get laffs, i like to talk about sports and music.....same guy.

but i have a bit of a stutter IRL so sometimes when it is really bad or pronounced (pardon the pun) I might clam up a bit, which on several occasions has led farkers to be like, 'yeah man, he's way different, on page he won't shut the fark up, in real life he just nodded and smiled a lot, totally different cat in real life....'

but not really.  depends on what day you catch me.
 
2017-11-21 06:20:55 PM  
I probably swear more in person than I type here... otherwise this is about what a conversation with me is like outside of here.
 
2017-11-21 06:20:59 PM  
Nah, I'm always a sarcastic, slightly drunken, asshole.
 
2017-11-21 06:27:22 PM  
Well, I have a different name...
 
2017-11-21 06:31:50 PM  
In real life I am worshipped as a god-king.
I come on here to stay grounded.

MAJ Ethanolic: No, and I hate you and every political policy you stand for.


My take on politics...

lordargent.comView Full Size


And an excerpt from my profile...

"Politically neutral (I agree with democrats on some things, and republicans on other things, I also disagree with democrats on a lot of things, and likewise, disagree with republicans with lots of things).

I feel that modern politics is garbage and the strong focus on partisanship is destroying society."
 
2017-11-21 06:33:33 PM  
I'm pretty much the same in person as I am when I'm on Fark. Most often, I'm not funny though I try to be. I'm often surprised I get greenlighted headlines & articles.

While I have friends here, I don't have close friends locally. And I'm single, which I often make self-deprecating jokes about.

I just find it's difficult to meet single women in Alabama:
- In my age group.
- Who support progressive policies.
- Who believe in equality for all including GLBTQ folk.
- Who are not religious zealots.
- Who vote for the individual's qualifications; not solely for their Republican party.
- Who are not obese or morbidly so.
- Who are not crazy.
- Who have most of their teeth in their head still.
- Who can stand on their own two feet financially.
- Who can hold a decent conversation.

See. Not looking for perfection. Just someone within normal bounds of sanity.

Yeah, you should move.

Well, that makes you a Trump lover. Anyone even slightly right of the far left is a Trump loving Nazi douche bag these days.
 
2017-11-21 06:39:45 PM  
in some ways, sure. I'm more apt to call someone out for being a stupid fu*k here than in real life. Sue me.

Oh yes, in real life my penis is much, much larger.
 
2017-11-21 06:50:52 PM  
In real life, my name is Ben Garrison and I write Chuck Tingle fanfiction.

Are you my twin. I'm exactly the same. Stuttering included.
 
2017-11-21 06:55:12 PM  
I am a smart and clever person in real life too.
 
2017-11-21 07:03:50 PM  
In real life I am polite, erudite, and not a jerk.

So, yes.
 
2017-11-21 07:06:21 PM  
I am startlingly bright, quick-witted, and wise beyond my years.

Well, presuming I can keep my mouth shut.
 
2017-11-21 07:09:08 PM  
Yes. I use the "F Word" about 100 times a day in real life but I can't here because I might offend some delicate sensibilities.
 
2017-11-21 07:09:55 PM  
Is this the real life?
Or is it just fantasy?
Caught in landslide
No escape from reality.
 
2017-11-21 07:11:31 PM  
For the most part, I'm pretty much wysiwyg. :)

On Fark, that's absolutely a farking fact.
 
2017-11-21 07:15:52 PM  
I'd screw up trying to remember what 'part' to play in which place, it's just much easier to be 'me' where ever I am. I am NOT taller IRL.
 
2017-11-21 07:19:18 PM  
Mostly the same, though I do try to avoid being too vulgar online (vs my max capacity) so it doesn't come back to bite me someday.

Sometimes I used to ask people at the grocery store to click my Funny button, but now I have to shop at a different grocery store.

Same here. If I've said it to anyone on FARK I've said it to people IRL. I am what I am.
 
2017-11-21 07:29:31 PM  
I'm a wise old dude on Fark, a wise old dude in real life.

Belligerent and Numerous: IRL, I am startlingly bright, quick-witted, and wise beyond my years.

FTFM. On Fark my flaws are more obviously evident.
 
2017-11-21 07:43:23 PM  
While here I am seelorq, in real life I am more griknap, and a small group of people know exactly what I mean.
