Did everybody finally leave for good? I wonder if proboards will eventually take this place down due to inactivity. I'm kinda surprised they haven't already. Hey, if whoever is looking at this is looking to hire a freshly graduated computer science major for a software engineering job, hit me up.

I hate drawing; if you guys start a forum about programming I'm in. Until then, I'll just keep posting meaningless bullshit every month or so until Proboards pulls the plug on this forum. Does anyone know how that works? Do they delete forums when nobody has posted in xxx amount of days, or do they just look at general activity as in x number of people logged in since a month ago? I'm thinking of archiving all the posts on here somehow; I'll always enjoy the nostalgia of reading all the old threads. Hey Xinxinix, Nitro, and Zarth: do you guys have steam? Anybody else that reads this should add me too: steam name: Elementelll (note the three l's!). Or you could just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say...
I can't believe you guys are still fucking around over here.
You know what's weird? I spent all my time on Newgrounds, then on this site for years, and although I didn't have any real life friends I had plenty of internet friends. Then, I made some real friends in high school and did some actual living and socializing for a couple years. Finally, I'm in college and I don't have any friends at all, real or internet. Honestly, sometimes I wonder if I should've stayed connected to all of these people I knew from the internet. I doubt they would've started doing heroin and going separate ways...
Also, I unbalanced your poll.

I found some old pictures I had from this place just a few minutes ago. This motherfucker is like a time capsule.
Remember when Grim hated Ghost? I don't know if she actually posted this on the boards but fuck it.
Remember me trolling the Proboards chat? Good times. John12346 always played detective for my shenanigans! He really, really enjoyed the phoenix wright series.
Remember when I became moderator like 5 times despite constantly proving the fact that I was not a good candidate for a power holding position?
Remember when I RabiesIsMe just wanted to see if I could open his flash document with all of his assets, and I stole them all and pissed rabies off by making pictures with them? Probably not, but that happened. Speaking of Rabies, during the last conversation I can recall having with him, he said that he took a shit out of a window onto a car. Take that how you will.
I used to spend ludicrous amounts of time talking to these two. Oh the times that were had while I stayed up literally all night, usually waking up at 5 pm in the summer and falling asleep around 11 am. It was like I was working the night shift except I did nothing all day.
Not that this has anything to do with you guys per say, but look at my fucking desktop from when I was frequenting this website at around 13. This is ridiculous.
I might dig up some more later if I get bored.

I just feel like I need to meet somebody that is in the same boat, but on opposite sides of me. Like, somebody good at drawing but terrible at programming. I've always been afraid of that though, because knowing me I'd want total creative control, and that would make me a total dick if we were making something without being paid for it.
Also, I didn't realize you were nitro until I scrolled over your name. Sup bro
Also also, the votes on the poll were 50/50 but I changed mine >: D

I've come to realize that I just don't have the patience to learn how to draw; I'm just like meowth, man. I spent all of my experience learning how to program, and now there's nothing left over for learning how to draw.
Also, was RabiesIsMe good at drawing from the start? I remember when he had that guitar character he was great but I can't remember anything he did prior to that... That guy was great. I was 14 and he was 16 and I thought he was so cool. Also, since he was from Belgium he could drink. You know what, I bet he is still one chill motherfucker, whatever it is that he is doing now.

How many people here still draw? Obviously I've never been able to draw (if anyone even remembers), nor did I ever put much effort into it being that I was 13-14 when I spent the bulk of my time on this website; I was just wondering how many of you continued pursuing it. I mean, there are some obvious people like Destructin or McJesus, who were already pretty good artists before they came here (and coincidentally both despised me), but how about you all that started drawing here? I know at this point I'm only reaching out to a fraction of the community that I remember, but at least it brings a topic of discussion for whoever floats in here.
Got a job and getting my first paycheck today. It goes well.
And good to see you after so long Elemantel. And I'd like to know why Dec 30 was so special as well.
And YOU BASTARD, FUFGDG.
Retail? My first job was at taco bell, and I have sworn against employment at a facility with a drive through since.
Yeah bro, although I never post I come back here at least one every couple months or so, sometimes more, sometimes less. I always look at the old posts and sigh. I've been thinking about that paltalk chat we used to spend so much time in too, I swear I've logged at least a hundred hours talking to you, captain chip and his sister, ghost, sheep shifter, MVG, john12346, and some other people who didn't come on as much. It's amazing looking back at the ridiculous amount of free time I had at my disposal as a kid.
Right now I'm fucking with the tablet I bought around that time for no purpose. I still can't draw.

Hey. Whats up? I haven't really been on here in 3 years or so, hows everybody that I knew hanging on to life? I've always wanted to actually be a part of this site, but I never really had the artistic skill, I don't even remember how I ended up finding this site. I sure did spend a shit ton of time here though, I definitely remember waking up to this site, spending all day talking to people from it and being on the site, then going to bed for weeks. that was in my awkward freshman/sophomore years of high school, so I had a lot of free time. I feel like everybody had the same problem I did though, because there were ALWAYS people on here man, it's crazy thinking about having all that time to waste, and now everything is so busy. People, a job, and college coming up.
When I posted here before, I didn't think about any of this. I was still locked up in my own little sanctuary, this fucking computer, with the people that were around then. I don't know if I can call you my friends or not, but I really enjoyed the time we did(n't really) spend together on chats and what not. I don't miss those times, I really don't. I was so weird, I'm glad I'm nothing like the person I was previously, but I miss some of the people here sometimes. I don't know, Grimscott, RabiesIsMe, Virus, firemario(for a while), pretty sure I talked to bulet a bunch, as well as playaplay. I hope I get these names right.
I just wanted to tell you guys that even though I was an oblivious to the world, shelled up person, you really meant so much to me. I really used to spend full nights just talking to grim and rabies, a good 3-5 hours, and that was all the time. 'This isn't a I wish things were the way before' post, it would just be cool to have my friends back. I have an actual life now, and I'm sure they do too, so I know its not feasible. It would still be pretty cool for the people I communicated with to say how their lives have changed in the past 3 years, whats been going on guys, we've all got to be so different now. 3 years is a long time. It's crazy being 18, next thing I know I'll be 40.
(edit) Now that I look at my old posts though, its really only been a year and 8 months. Well fuck... Thats still a long time.
I have an idea let's make it so at least once every week someone makes a comment on how the forum is slow even though it is obvious to everybody and while complaining about it you are only contributing to the lack of productivity.
You can't combo-break the serious atmosphere, bro.
I should have an opinion on this, but maybe I just don't have the time to write it all down or maybe I have a problem spreading my thoughts on the matter. Nonetheless, I'm fairly surprised at the amount of debate here, I almost didn't even click on this thread but scrolling down and giving everyone an equal 1-sentence skim, all I can say is... woah.
What made you think about this all of a sudden?
I'm reading the book Mutation, by robin cook. Its not bad, gets a little boring in the middle, but otherwise interesting. It has gene altering things, which got me wondering about the topic.
Hate to sound like a dick kro but you should probably have a general idea of how something works before you argue about it. The elaborate, you were talking about adaptation, not evolution, which is kind of understandable since they're loosely related, and generally talked about at the same time. Also I'd have to agree with you metal chao, currently it doesn't matter about your genes or general health, as long as you're not dying in a hospital bed, to reproduce. Actually, as far as I've read about other third world countries and other places of low quality of life, it seems fertility is higher in those places. Why, is it because sex is something to do? Why do people want to have children in really terrible places? I think its just more than just lack of birth control.
