    Nothing really confuses me, but everyday my expectations of what a reasonable person would be, get lowered just a little bit.

    Actually I got confused skiing down a mountain during a snow storm, I lost track of sky vs the ground....that through me for a loop until I got my bearings.

    I'm confused about what is vulgar. Up until a couple days ago, i thought I knew. All sorts of crap on these forums that didn't use to be.

    be careful with this. it's the fastest path toward being an angry bitter old person. my GF's grandmother is about to die and seriously everyone, including herself, can't wait. the problem with expectations are that they can get out of wack pretty quickly and the only person left disappointed is yourself. expectations are like baggage, best to check them at the door.

    That would only be if I cared for people enough to make it worth my while. Luckily I have friends that understand respect from both ends and don't play games and cry when it suits them. Last thing I would ever be is bitter...old maybe...but not bitter ...

    Ugh, its these stepper motors though. IT seems there is so much to it that once you get one of those "Ah ha" moments where you think you have it all. Somebody comes along with a little voice and says "actually...."

    back on topic...I'm confused as to why I can drink a half dozen cans of Mt. Dew and feel no effects, but after a third of a can of Monster energy drink, my heart is racing and I've got the jitters

    Let me help you out a bit. Guys are interested in three things: cars, girls, and beer. And we speak a different language. The following translations are most important for understanding what we are saying...

    "I'm hungry" = I'm hungry. [A better translation is "Cook something for me".]
    [Note: Occasionally, it can mean "Can I take you out to dinner?" See below.]
    "I'm sleepy" = I'm sleepy. [A better translation is "It's bedtime".]
    "I'm tired" = I'm tired. [A better translation is "It's bedtime".]
    [Note regarding "It's bedtime": See "I love you".]
    "Do you want to go to a movie?" = I'd eventually like to have sex with you.
    "Can I take you out to dinner?" = I'd eventually like to have sex with you.
    "Can I call you sometime?" = I'd eventually like to have sex with you.
    "May I have this dance?" = I'd eventually like to have sex with you.
    "I'm bored." = Do you want to have sex?
    "I love you." = Let's have sex now.
    "I love you, too." = Okay, I said it... we'd better have sex now!

    Some more translations to help members of both gender out can be found here.
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    You are SO bad, Jschen! So you didn't post this due to lack of nooky nooky? I mean, it's a 3 hour drive to and fro!

    And you know none of us believed that "jeans" story either. But we all just went along......
