I also ran through the other forums that I posted on, including the non-Manics ones: Muse and self-injury dot net. I talked about how much I enjoyed posting on the latter and how I met P Wang on the former.
Then I talked about a classmate I had in school who I made fun of during rehearsals for our 8th grade school play and how I felt bad about this.
That ancedote was just an excuse to post about how I found her on Facebook, though. So I talked about my Facebook findings and how it was actually her daughter's page that I found. The girl I made fun of was the least attractive girl in our grade but her daughter looks alright and has a fiance who's a hot young stud. So I pondered the mysteries of genetics.
This was a segue to talk about Tinder and the sort of ladies that I'm attracting on there. One of my matches is a 25 year old Chinese girl. She mentions liking Lao-Tzu, ethnography, Marxism, and sewing so I talked about how much of a great match she was. Then I talked about her physical appearance and how she's nerdy-looking, which is perfect because that means Chinese men aren't interested so she has to look for white men. And nerdy Chinese girls can still be cute, as this girl is, and she probably has a smoking body.
I also mentioned, in brief, a 33 year old not-so-attractive Glasgow woman who I matched and won't be messaging.
That's where the message ended. Then I went to a streaming tv site on another window and there was some pop up that caused my browser to crash when I tried to close it.
But back to that Chinese girl. I neglected to mention that she lives in New York so it's a waste of time. But I was also probably wrong about Chinese women having smoking bodies.
There was a scandal a few months ago wherein Chinese loan sharks would give women loans at usurious rates in exchange for nude photos or videos as collateral. And they'd say if you don't pay us back, we'll send the pictures to your friends and family.
So some of these pictures got leaked and I managed to take a look at some of them. Holy crap. How did some of these women get loans based on this? There must be 150 women. Something like this. I didn't look at all of them. But I'd say that 5% are attractive, 20% are alright, and 75% are...well...I don't want to be cruel but I really don't want to see these women naked.
They don't shave in China. "Well, big deal. You have a problem with hairy pussies?" No, that's cool and I like the tuft of straight hair that Asian women have. But I'm saying that they don't shave AT ALL. I don't want to see naked pictures of women with more armpit hair than I have.
These must be women from rural areas without access to razors.
Aside from this hair issue, they're also surprisingly overweight.
So it was an eye-opening experience. If this is represetative of the average Chinese woman, as it probably is, you're not missing anything. One or two women looked great, really made an effort to take a good picture, got the lighting right, got a flattering angle, whatever. One or two even had some nice, big titties. But most of them were overweight, hirsute peasant farmers who just took a quick picture after a hard day in the fields and sent it off.
Wait a minute. That guy asking about "Nigel" is. apparently, 31. I'm 39. So when must I have been posting there? I was 20 or so when I found the first Manics site. Stay Beautiful was later. Probably...man, I don't know.
I remember early on in the chat room, people would talk about "V99". I had no idea what this was but now I know that it was a music festival that was held in 1999. That fits with my recollection. In 1999, I was 20 or 21.
Stay Beautiful was after ManicsShoppe closed, I think. But when was that? Maybe 2001?
Yeah, maybe. I would have finished university by then. Living in Rhode Island.
It's coming back to me. I remember asking people there if they'd let me stay with them when I moved to England until I found my own place. Actually, this may have been the Muse board. Maybe it was both. But nobody took me up on the offer and I condemned English people to being selfish assholes.
It's true. I mean, if somebody who I've spoken to for many years, even if just through the internet, says, "Hey, I'm coming to Scotland and I need a place to stay until I get on my feet. Can I stay with you?" I'd say, "Yeah, no problem." It's a cultural thing. Americans are hospitable. English people just lack any sort of empathy.
But I didn't move until late 2005. Was it still up then? Let me check archive.org.
2006 is the last year it was up.
So I was 27 in 2005, and presumably posting there. This guy must have been 19. Let's assume that I was also posting there in 2001. If he was also posting there, he would have been 15.
I'll give him a pass for not putting me up since he was just 19. Probably didn't have his own place. It says he's in London, by the way. But it's a bit weird. I assumed people were older.
I didn't even know what "SB" was and it took me about five minutes before I remembered that forum at all. So I don't think I was posting there long. although I may have been. Interesting that I'm a legendary figure to what were then young people.
I came to London in 2005. I didn't have internet access at all for the first year or so. It was maybe three years before I had my own internet access. So by the time I would have been able to check out the forums, they were already long gone. That's really a lost few years there, internet-wise. I can understand people wanting to know what happened.
I was posting on the official forum in...probably 2007 about the volunteer political work I was doing. So people at least from that. Was that guy Gary or whoever also still running his forum? What a douche he was. Promises a censorship-free forum and then immediatley starts censoring when people join. "Oh, I never said it would be censorship free."
How hard is it really to run a forum without deleting messages? Nobody was even saying anything remotely offensive. It's ridiculous.
As far as Forever Delayed, I posted there once years ago and was 'banned' so never bothered. Nothing on that forum interested me in the slightest and again, it's run by some mentally-challenged, no life faggot. That seems to be the way with forums, which is why TIY-TMB has always been so special.
