    I'm quite liking this new thread title and such, it's simple and to the point with no ideas above it's station.

    Not that I am an expert, but you're probably going to have to get used to it. The odds on, say, OkCupid aren't good. It takes 18 messages sent (as a guy) for a 50% chance of a reply. You're going to have to message over 50 people to put yourself into the "almost impossible to not have gotten at least one reply yet" camp.

    I also think dating sites really showcase the worst in people, and allow people to be way to picky/choosy, but obviously some people have success on them; you just have to stick with it. Good luck on any future attempts.

    As for my rant; I'm 25 years old and I've been having regular nightmares as far back as I remember. I really hoped I would have grown out of them by now, but apparently not. :(

    I don't remember the good ones. They probably happen. But I wouldn't know. They might all be bad and I only remember some. Either way, dreams are not a comfort. So, erm, I guess, you aren't alone?

    There was a blister or a boil or a pimple or something on my toe and it popped, and now it's all infected. :(

    I can totally relate. All of our equipment is donated to us... for cause.

    Fixed, to apply to me.

    Rant: I've been googling high and <redacted> low for a specific episode of the SMBC webcomic, but once again.... GOD DAMN GOOGLE IS <redacted> FAILING ME!!!! WHY DO YOU THINK I COMPLAIN SO <redacted> MUCH ABOUT SEARCH ENGINES BEING <redacted> USELESS, YOU GUYS?!?!?! :aargh:

    [pissed]

    Jesus Christ; OT. You guys never listen. When CivG complained about that one job, he was correct right from the beginning; but you forced him to apply anyway, and he still got rejected. Similar with me vs search engines.

    If we complain about something, we know from experience exactly how they (will) turn out, and we have empirical evidence to back us the <redacted> up, so you really need to stop insulting our intelligence and experience. :mad:

    So, tl;dr, PAY <redacted> ATTENTION TO OUR COMPLAINTS, DAMMIT! :aargh:

    Believe it or not, this thread is not about you.
    Rants threads have always had more comedy value than Raves threads.

    Idgaf.

    I am being serious.

    I'm here to vent. That's what this thread is for; I'm just using it for what it is intended for. Ranting. If you have a problem with that, the ignore list is not that hard to use, people. :rolleyes:

    It's not that you rant, it's just that you only ever rant about things that seem so menial and honestly not even worth getting worked up about.

    I've just realized some of the CFC posters are my brother's age (18) and younger.

    Makes me feel just a little bit older.
