#109632 Open your mind to me....

Posted by Affray on 31 July 2018 - 09:58 PM

It's becoming increasingly difficult to take pride in our work when so many employers insist on paying people like garbage and still expecting above and beyond performance. A great many businesses are taking shadier and sleazier steps to make increasingly larger profits an they're doing so at the expense of their workers. I'm sure there are other societal factors involved, but from what I've seen it seems to boil down to people being unhappy that they are unappreciated and underpaid for their time and talents.

#109595 Mary Ann or Ginger?

Posted by Affray on 15 July 2018 - 02:28 PM

I love you so much, Affray.


This principle also applies to Carlton vs. Steve Urkel. Steve is the catch-phrase-slinging caricature and Carlton is a much more relatable, multi-dimensional guy who could actually exist. As a kid, Urkel is funny because you're a kid; when you get older, Carlton is way more interesting.



And that episode where Carlton buys a gun after Will gets shot so that it will never happen again is some of the realest shit that show ever laid down.

#109551 Mary Ann or Ginger?

Posted by Affray on 02 July 2018 - 10:38 AM

You like Mary Ann more now because she's actually useful as a human being. She's superior for the same reason that Betty trumps Veronica, they're down to Earth hard working women who don't often add extra stress to people's lives. Frivolous tarts like Ginger and Veronica will always fall short in the long run because they're selfish and refuse to change themselves for anything or anyone.

#109082 The state of Nerd Forum, 2018

Posted by Affray on 28 January 2018 - 07:32 PM

I haven't been around for shit lately and when I saw this thread title my heart skipped a beat.

I'm glad the forum won't suddenly disappear on me, I've become attached to some of you clowns.


I don't know when I'll have more time for leisure stuff but when I do I'll be more prominent again.

I've just started a super full time job so I can afford light and heat and stuff, plus I'm still running my business and trying to get an online shop going again for my patches.

Life is busier right now than I honestly thought possible, but I've got to do what I've got to do I guess.

In any case, I'll be around when I can be and will rest a bit easier knowing this place will remain functional with or without me.

#108948 Relationships

Posted by Affray on 17 December 2017 - 05:01 PM

Engaged, still. We can't afford a big, flashy wedding (which we both kind of want), so we're just working on saving money. Renting isn't the most stable way to live.


I've been married to my wife for two years but we've been together for eleven.

Seven years of which we were engaged for, so don't feel like the length of an engagement matters all that much.

We knew what we were about and wanted to get a house before we got married and that's what we did.

It's definitely nice to have a home that's yours together, even if it's expensive and more nerve wracking than letting a landlord handle any shit that goes down.

I wish I had more experience in the matter so I could give you something, anything that could point you in the right direction.


Posted by Affray on 26 August 2017 - 10:31 AM

That's definitely a rough run man.

Without trying to sound like a cliche, things do tend to get better after a huge drop like that.

Your first serious relationship is going to hurt like a bitch when it ends and it's the same for everyone.

It's all you know so it's all you can imagine, but trust me when I say the ache slows down and fades away with time.

Which sounds like bullshit right now, I know.


Just do me a favour and keep fighting through all the bullshit you're dealing with right now.

If you don't come out the other side a stronger man you can come on here and call me an asshole.

#108298 Am I Gay?

Posted by Affray on 21 August 2017 - 11:16 AM

I just smoke it for the nicotine, I don't want people to actually know I use one because of the stereotypes surrounding it. 

Then I think you're fine.

It's only the guys who act like it's the coolest thing since popped collars and puka shell necklaces that have to worry about being gay.

You're bi-curious at most.

My profile pic is probably one of the better photos Ive taken of myself.

You kind of look like Adam Savage and Tom Hiddleson did a fusion dance in that picture.

#108261 Why So Serious

Posted by Affray on 15 August 2017 - 07:56 AM

That's the sweetest thing, Affray.

If you aren't going to ogle your spouse for the rest of your life what's the point in even getting married?

She gets her eye candy too, it's a fair trade system.

#108258 Why So Serious

Posted by Affray on 14 August 2017 - 06:37 PM

I get laid on the reg and still catch myself staring at my wife's cleavage.

That shit's some kind of magic man, don't feel bad for getting pulled in.

This is my concealed carry, except I attach it to a bottle of maple syrup.

Why aren't mail-order husbands a thing?

The packaging has to be bulkier, so the shipping costs are too high.

I just expected a cartoony smokey the bear with a red mountie hat

Were not all mounties.

Some of us are hockey players.
