My sentiment as well. And I believe he's still so occupied with his own opinions (and perhaps ego) that he hasn't even begun to listen to others or to realize that there is plenty to gain by being a wee bit humble from time to time. It's all a matter of maturity imho.

I suspect that kid now has a sudden and inexplicable urge to play obscure and outdated first-person adventure games every time he or she puts the wig on.
That's great! Both the Locks of Love donation and increasing the adventure gaming community.

Don't be a stranger in the future and come here more often!

You and me both. At least I want the portion of my $60 back that covers the last twenty minutes of the game.

Well, if I recall correctly, we had one a while ago, but then we broke him in.

I envy stupid people, they seem so much happier, content in their ignorant little worlds.

Yes, unless their ignorant little worlds include spitting chewing tabacco in parking lots and speaking in unintelligible accents.

You seem like you do, anyway. Again, however, you need to listen to less hip hop.

I hate precocious children, mainly because I was one myself.

I feel it's my duty to kick the "smart people don't listen to hip-hop" trend.

Today's precocious children are tomorrow's evil geniuses. They're our most precious resource.


Oh, and I've never had to deal with a bully. Or the absurd social circles of high school. Yay for home-schooling. Although when I was about nine, a kid pissed me off so bad by trying to trip me (unprecocious children for you) that I sat on him while another kid he had beat up made him chew on a very used dog toy.

I don't like rivalry for the position of evil genius.

Were you a fat child? Sounds humourous nevertheless.

No, actually. I've been tall and skinny my whole life. Bullies are just that easy to slap around.

Well done then. These sort of personalities deserve to be put in their place.

Since the calculation for IQ involves taking into account your age, "high IQ for his age" is at best redundant or probably just plain wrong
