That's a significant part of it for me. Of the various forums I've looked in in, this is the only one I've encountered where comedy can be freely expressed and developed and collectively appreciated in a pseudo-intellectual way. It matters not whether it's satire, silly, childish jokes or humour that only those with an education in the classics immediately appreciate, but there's nothing to stop anyone googling to get the references and find the humour within. I like it that I can express myself in all the personas I witnessed in others over my life, sometimes bringing ridicule to them and at other times pathos, and sometimes posting as the person I actually am. It's fascinating to read the responses I get from each persona. I find it fascinating too how seriously some people take themselves, as though what they have to say will do anything all to change the world, but I love it when I'm able to bring my technical experience in an attempt to help solve someone's technical problem. I particularly like that, since it involves more brainpower, both in steering a description of the problem into something that can be solved through an intellectual visualisation of what the cause of the problem could be and of devising an explanation of how it can be cured by the non-technical using only words. Mostly though, I post in the hope I can engage you in something we find mutually interesting. As I type, I'm being troubled by a wet dog, fresh out of his daily invigorating shower, which for reasons unknown, encourages him to imagine that I shall enjoy being pestered by his squeaky toys more than I shall before his shower. Who among you has a solution to this that doesn't involve strangling the little bleeder or trading him in for a proper dog?
