    Soma, why do you typically choose to forgo a question mark when asking questions?

    It's an aesthetic preference. I've always felt that my posting style lends itself to a a monotonous reading, and I think that forgoing question marks in favour of full stops accentuates this quality. I only use question marks if I would appear to be making a statement without one.

    And I was pretty adamant about getting the right pairs too, the graffiti logo had to be very extreme and the width had to cover almost the whole shoe. Cartoon characters were welcomed but not required by me. I did not own this particular pair as they didn't sell it in my size but I do remember wanting it. This was middle school teen years.

    I always assumed they'd be one size fits all. Possibly with an elastic waist.

    My whole body could fit in one leg at that point in my life. I then started shopping at express and buying lacoste shirts on ebay. Thought I had stepped into the world of high fashion rocking that crocodile.

    really not anything noteworthy. i have created my own information intake bubble and do a bad job of getting outside that. i read whatever's on Google News. now that i have a Financial Times and Wall Street Journal subscription for work i read them. i still like Fivethirtyeight and Grantland. most of the blog stuff i read is from Twitter. the poster formerly known as Feisty retweeted a good TechCrunch article today about the Bay Area housing crisis and gentrification (one of my favorite subjects!): http://techcrunch.com/2014/04/14/sf-housing/

    i read a ton of sports/fantasy sports updates that are of minimal interest but take a lot of time to get through. i mainly use Reddit to look at amateur pornography, but it's still the best source of links around.

    I love it when Fender copies and pastes entire webpages instead of just the text of the article he wants to share.

    Ha.

    Not sure why that one day became something I was gonna take upon myself. Maybe just having an actual person to yell at after reading nonsense in the news, as opposed to just yelling in my head. Or maybe it's just an opportunity to work out my somewhat complicated feelings toward my catholic upbringing. Or maybe I just like to tell people what to think. I don't fucking know.

    Oddly I don't have any ill will toward Fender, though we're obviously in complete opposition to each other about pretty much anything. I'm kinda interested in what his actual deal is. I've begun to wonder if he's from this country or not (I believe he's mentioned is wife being from Asia), or if he's like the driest Madrox puppet ever or something. Like how did this dude who seems to care about nothing but catholicism and Bob Dylan come to decide SOMB was fertile ground to spread the good news?

    Anyway, clearly neither of us is going to convince the other about anything, but it's a way to pass the time.

    Fender is a bad poster because he isn't able to present his ideas in a palatable way that in induces actual conversation. He is basically just proselytizing about Christianity. It is weird that he chose SOMB as an appropriate setting to engage that project.

    I don't have any ill will either despite threatening him over the Internet a few times.
