Okay, this one is easy:
Fellow members who find a way to take this thread seriously - vs - those who definitely do not ;)

:lol: haha, you got me there!
But people are such a fascinating topic, so it is certainly a topic worth talking seriously about too though ;) (look I inserted a couple smileys, so my message comes of as less serious, I'm evolving!)

As a newbie I can't say too much about people I don't know all that well; though I have seen a couple of others here in other places. There are a lot of excellent posts here from people with a lot of knowledge and experience. It beats other sites I've been a member of where what some people write makes you narrow your eyes and wonder if they're joking or just live in a very small village they've never ventured out of.

Generally all people are great, until a political or economic discussion starts. Then it all goes downhill, because obviously I'm right and they're wrong. 8-)

Finally, I'm gonna take that as the green light. You and I.... sorry 'we'.... sorry 'I' have always wondered whether we/us/I/you should tell everyone that we are the same person. Well that time has come, but who's gonna tell them, you or me? Maybe you should ask your wife, sorry my wife... Huh? I'm confused... what the hell is going on here? :? If I'm me, then who the hell are you?

I love this forum. You meet some cool and nice people. Some are truly amazing. But then once I started reading some of their outlooks on the world, I realised no place is free of idiots.
