I just have videos of me at 17/18 listening to music getting high on my bed in the sunlight. Not bad videos but not as productive as this one. It is funny to see the different body and mentality.

Good stuff! the only videos of me back then is at weddings, trying to dance like Michael Jackson while everybody else were staring at me in a funny way...

My girlfriend wrote to herself in the future when she was a teenager. When the date came to read the letter, she took a precursory glance and then tore it up saying that she was a "stupid teenage asshole".

....and she had the guts and the brains and years of experience honing the fine art of asshole for all those years to recognize that teenaged asshole-Otherwise she wouldn't be with you SluiceGate and she wouldn't be able to spot that young asshole unless you guessed it, she's still an asshole a bit smoother around the edges!

Needs the sarcasm button to take the edge of this, dear ching. A bit harsh, given you don't even know the woman. I'm assuming.

Nothing needs the sarcasm button!

bareboards2 says...

@alien_concept -- I knew me saying that would be frowned upon. I chose to say it anyway.

And here I was just saying to a sweet member of the community how I could learn from their example about always being nice and keeping my opinions to myself. I didn't last one day after having that private exchange.

Ah well. I guess I'll never learn.

What, no. Why would you try be something you're not? Opinions and stating them keep this place alive! And actually I'm pretty certain me and my hate for the sarcasm button puts me in the minority

Damn, see?! Here I am thinkin' alla time that my less-than-clever observations have a kernel of truth embedded in the of manure. Your GF Sluice, sounded to me like she had a sense of humor about herself even though ego wouldn't let her enjoy the "her" from the past's, letter she wrote. Hell, that's a natural response for anyone....(have you ever read some of the shit hatched from the mind behind the pen that others have saved??

I have a few ranting letters that I ain't too proud of that others have saved for ammunition or I-told-you-so's. You have to remind others and yourself that the person who wrote that is dynamic and chaotic....NOT static.

Fundamentally people's personalities/temperaments don't change much after maybe 12 years old and loved ones tend to remember you as you were.

Your GF read a reminder of the little girl who is still lurking there....maybe it scared her or pissed her off-Ego baby, it's a motherfucker!!

Since the inception of the sarcasm button I don't think I recall seeing anyone use it....It's akin to a utensil in the kitchen drawer you see every time you open it, but never use.

Personally, I like to think that I can be the sweetest asshole on the block...cause I KNOW I'll never be able stop with the asshole!!!

(especially if I went completely sober!)

This reminds me of the difference between an optimist and pessimist.

Lock a pessimist in a room full of "manure" and they will cry, cry, cry.

Lock an optimist in a room full of "manure", come back later, and you will find them happily digging through the crap with their bare hands. "With all this shit, there must be a pony in here somewhere!"

What's really funny about this is I hadn't realized you had come out of the sock puppet closet, chingalingachogchog. I was just honestly and pessimistically responded to the pile!

I need to unleash my inner optimist!

Fantastic that he thought to do it, and did so. And even better because his sense of humour now worked so well, he did an awesome job of this.

My wife wrote herself a letter as a teenager. She read it recently, but it made little impact
