I'm not quite sure how to respond to that. It's certainly interesting, and discusses concepts that I've seen first hand, but given the fact that (for the most part) my username is some form or derivation of my "real" name, what does this say about me? Or, more importantly, should I care about what it says about me? And then there's the notion that when I play video games where I can control the appearance of my in-game avatar, what does it say about me when I almost invariably create female characters with green eyes and slim (almost slight) figures and smaller than average breasts? ??? :-\ Or does it really matter? :D

I'm not a shrink but it seems you have some deep seated neurosis there that you should be proud of.  :LOL:

My best guess would be a "Lunatic"  :P

Good vid  :)

Very good video. I remember that those people selling parts of the moon from when I first went on the internet.

The universe isn't strange, we are  ;)

Yeah I liked that, another gem  :thumbsup:

That concept is only 'comfortable' if you don't really think about it. At first, I took it at face value and was fine, but then I started to contemplate the implications and immediately got a headache. :D
