"Man, wanting to better yourself is great. However, don't take away from what you are currently doing. In my opinion your job is more manly then the burrliest of construction workers. Any "man" that looks down on your job and taking…"
"I am a PC gamer when I have the time.. I've.never cared.for console games as they have always been several steps behind the PC's capabilities. Anyway, I currently play Diablo 3, DayZ and my all time favorite Ultima Online. UO has been…"

"I don't know...that's possible. But believe me, it's NOT like I'm hooked on some idea that I could be with her. Like I said, I know better than to cross that line. I hang out with them a lot because they are two of my only true…"
"Oh, and quit the roids, man. It has been documented to cause, small testicles, male pattern baldness, infertility, and heart issues. Your heart is a muscle, too. All those anabolic steroids affect it just like your biceps or quads."
