I'm 28 this Friday. I'm pissed because this is the first time I've had a Friday birthday and actually been old enough to go into a bar, but I'm coming down with a cold. I'm gonna be slamming tea, soup, and zinc tablets so maybe I can nip it in the bud.

i don't mean to holler your name out in the wind like this struttin', but i want to use this post as an example for something.

some folks round here know i can get to be as wild as a buck at times. heh, we all get wet grass in our veins from time 2 time.

thing is, i may be a wild blab, but i'm an honest blab too. unlike this here evil mushroom.

I know we have people that age around but that's definitely a novelty. Anyone that age who likes a forum style platform is probably on reddit.


reddit as a forum is hell on earth.

this place is small enough to actually have meaningful relationships with people. and if anything, age is a plus when it comes to talking about politics/society/indie rock.

I agree that reddit is a hellscape and it should die however thats also where i know something like this exists that kids use. Not that they DONT use message boards but they really didnt see the point.

It came up because they asked where I met my husband.

reddit is still probably one of the better systems to handle the amount of people that it does.

but millions of people posting at the same time (mostly anonymously) can't really be anything other than paranoid, gruelling, and repetitive.

reddit is fine if you really edit down the subreddits to stuff you are really interested in, the nicher the better.

Just like twitter is better if you turn off retweets for everybody and mute any political words you can think of, even the ones you agree with

Every year when kid8 makes his birthday thread I spend a minute reflecting that we're the same age and we've probably been on the board for roughly the same amount of time.

The world's a strange place.


That is something.

I doubt I'll live that long but even if I make it to 75 I don't see myself having anything better to do than boarding.
