    I've heard about this flashlight for a long time, never even thought about using one. But maybe its something I should look into.

    BTW, anyone messaged/heard from @LetsGoDuke301 lately? Haven't talked with him in what seems like a month or two

    It's gross. It's expensive. You'll feel disgusting afterwards. You'll try it again. You'll feel even worse. You'll have to clean it all up everytime and wash it. You'll do it maybe 6 times before you throw it away and never tell anybody about it except your internet friends.

    It's awesome. Highly recommend it.

    That reminds of the chick I met in Columbus. Amazingly accurate.

    I think I'm sold on trying one.

    Speaking of masterbation.

    Anyone here had an off hand injury and thought, even for a brief moment, I'm so glad it wasn't my prefered hand? Still have the hand injury, but just thought it could be worse.

    His account/IP is unable to sign in. For some reason that I was unable to figure out as well as the site owners. I am not sure where he has been though. He could have made another account but I think he chose not to.

    @ticket2ride04 can we get a rundown on what is happening over on the mainboard, if you know. Is the banning of kdawg, gavin, cordell and others just a giant elaborate troll (IYO) or is this all legit? I've lurked in a few of those threads that have been popping up about it and can't really get too good of a grasp on what is happening. I've been meaning to ask you since you're tied into that board more than anybody else here.

    Damn, it’s not hard to make another account. Maybe he will get back into it later.

    He's mentioned before how he would get too emotionally invested in some of the discussions on here and how it would affect his mood IRL. I could see him taking a break for awhile and not being able to log in would be a perfect excuse for that.

    Huh, I never took him for one of those guys that brought arguments on this board to real life. I always thought for most of us this was an escape from reality, if anything. Not the opposite. Regardless, I hope he’s doing well and will post again at some point.

    I think if you're going back and forth with people pretty frequently it's going to affect your mood. Especially since discussions about politics will occasionally lead to hostile words. We've seen that happen ITT several times before. I don't see how that can't affect your mood away from the message board from time to time. Obviously that wasn't what he was all about here but he did talk politics as much as anybody. I hope he comes back someday though.

    Hm. I guess maybe I didn’t post as much as he did. I can’t remember one time where I took my attitude on this board to real life.

    How do you only have 1870 messages? Amazing how you make them count.

    I'm over 20k and can't remember one of them.

    *btw, Knoxville it is. It's also going to be a lot sooner than I initially thought. We were planning June at the latest. It could be late March.

    Hardee’s got bought out by Carl’s Jr. in this part of the country probably 15-20 years ago. I did enjoy myself some Hardee’s breakfast back in high school though.

    He’s taking a long break. Pointed out that being here brings him no satisfaction and does nothing really too positive for his personal life. I think he’s recently married and has a kid on the way.

    I am trying to join him but this place is hard to give up.

    I grew up doing two things against my will. Washing cars at our dealership, and doing farm work. I hated picking tomatoes, bailing hay, feeding/watering cows, etc. When my mom said, "get a job, and you won't have to do it, I bugged the absolute shit out of the local Hardee's for a job". finally got it. "Only reason I gave you a job is so you'd stop showing up everyday". I didn't bring up the irony of that statement my mgr gave me.

    Turns out didn't work, food still had to be harvested, rain would be on the way and the cut hay had to be bailed, cows still needed feeding.

    I think my mom tricked me into getting a job.


    *also, I never heard of Carl's Jr until we moved down here.

    It’s definitely not for people with a weak constitution. I think this place is great. Don’t leave.

    I've been there. Short story, After HS, I worked at a place that installed commercial sound and security systems, I was doing a job at a local church, and my boss gave me his cell phone, (old cellphone that was in a bag and had an antenna coming up from the bag). He said, "don't use it unless you have to. It was my first time having possession of a cell phone and was amazed by it.

    Anyway, I'm in that Hardee's with my helper, and we thought it'd be funny to call hardee's from the dining area to ask for napkins. I was almost fired from that job due that one call. Horribly stupid on my part and If I didn't sell so much, I'm sure I would have.

    *i'm fairly certain that was London. ...yep London, it was First Christian Church. We upgraded their mics to where the elders could use hearing aids that tied into the microphones. F#ck, I'm getting old.

    Could be wrong about this, but I think @LetsGoDuke301 is still mourning the tragic death of his sister. That shiz isn't easy to get over. Hope you're doing okay, man. Your presence is missed.

    If so, I hope he’s holding up okay. I know when my
    Mom passed I definitely took some time away from the board, but also found some comfort in getting my mind off of things when I logged on. Hope all is well @LetsGoDuke301

    Wow! This tip looks pretty effective, if I'm being honest. Definitely not click bait.

    I'm sure if he does, no one here would out him on anything. I think we have a trust here. Which one would be like "That guy used to talk about beating off with fleshlights" for a couple of bucks?

    I mean if Trump can win with his background, anybody can win.

    I do fear of the day when hackers/kids expose everybody’s emails and text messages. Like every one you’ve ever had. That would suck. Nobody would go to work the next day.

    I don't get the whole "this place is addiction, bad in some how". Angle, been reading it more frequently.

    I like it. It makes me feel less weird and sexually deviant.

    ...Or we'd all just be more comfortable being the disgusting pigs we are. touching back on above, I like knowing, I'm not the only one.

    I had the most vile dream last night. It was just a dream, but I can't believe that was in my consciousness. It's too disgusting to share. I'm ashamed of my id.

    No not at all. I'm still ashamed from my jerkoff socks that I know my mom knew were jerk off socks when she'd do my laundry. That was 30 years ago, still shames me.

    I'm not feeling the basketball debating today, some reason fleshlight and running for office peaked my interest.

    The only thing it benefits me in is it cures boredom. The problem I have with it is sometimes I can be more in tuned to what is going on here than what is going on around me. Like I’ll say hold on or put off a project for a bit because I’m reading a thread. I’m entirely aware that is a me problem though. I’m having a child soon. I cannot let this board consume me when I’m having the biggest responsibility of my life, ya know?

    What about your boss? You sell cars, right? They’d be like lurker I see you logging in during hours to talk about the Kentucky effect all day. I thought you said you were reaching out to customers.

    I clearly have a very unhealthy relationship with this board. It could be living on an island, or the fact, I like being able to hang out with friends I can turn on and off at a notice. I can't do that in real life with all the pleasantries and stuff.
