Getting to know each other

A random search for something unrelated lead me to this thread, and I noticed something pretty obvious: the landscape of steady posters has changed a lot over the last decade+ of OOing. And while we all know each other well enough to argue with and insult one another (and sometimes agree and joke with one another, but mostly the first thing), we probably don't really know that much about everyone here.

So let's get to know each other, maybe? Start with the basics and branch out from there: How old are you? What's your job? Married? Kids? Hobbies? What do you drive? Anything else you think is relevant or interesting about yourself?

If this picks up any traction, I'll pop back in and give my story later on.

I was arrested at a gender reveal party once.

I had never been to one before, and at the big moment, I thought everyone was supposed to participate.

Did this get trainwrecked already? I'm guessing it was by the "fountain of semen" post, but I like to be certain about this kind of thing.

+1 to the goon!


It was my idea, so I feel obligated to play now that someone else did.

I'm 27 (for perspective, I started posting here when I was 14). My job for the past five years has been temping at a nuclear plant for about three months each year. They just decided to hire me full-time as an operator, so hello money, goodbye free time. I'm engaged to be married in 2020. No kids, and no plans for kids. Ask me again in three years once I'm more settled into my life. I drive a black 2015 Scion FR-S with a few visual upgrades. Nothing gaudy and nothing performance-wise. I'm not really a car guy. Hobbies include hiking, budget traveling (local vacations), vinyl records (new hobby), running my cats Instagram account (@thekittyinthewindow), and talking about wrestling with all of you wonderful, terrible people.

Age: 43 - I've been reading The Rick for about 22 years now. HOLY SHIT I'M OLD.

Job: I've been working for Disability Determination Services (under SSA) for over 18 years. 8 of them in Los Angeles, and the last decade in Seattle. I've been a Supervisor for the last 5 years. I'm now exactly what I didn't want to be when I grew up - a middle manager at an office job. Eh, could be a lot worse. I own a home, I don't hate my job, have good benefits, and a good retirement package. But that's at least another 20 years before that happens though. UGGGGGGGHHHHH.....

Married: No, but have been living with girlfriend for almost 7 or 8 years - I've lost count. She wants to get married, I don't care about marriage.

Kids: No and never. I have a dog. She's a 17 month old French Bulldog named Eleanor. She's fucking adorable and has an instagram. @eleanorrose_thefrenchie

Hobbies: Playing music (currently play bass in a Metallica tribute band), listening to podcasts, going on OO when I'm supposed to be working, watching rasslin, TV, and movies, video games, hiking, travelling, snowboarding, crossword puzzles.

What I drive: A 2012 Hyundai Elantra GT. I'm also determined to drive into the ground. Although at some point, I'd love to get a Toyota FJ Cruiser for non-practical stuff. And on the bucket list is an old motorcycle with a sidecar, for me and the dog, of course.

Age: 46 (47 this month, send gifts)

Job: Compliance Auditor for L Brands. Exciting I know, but I get to travel a little bit.

Married: yes, second one for both of us, going on 16 years.

Kids: 3ish. My first marriage produced one son, but his mother has been successful in making sure I don't have contact with him, so I have not seen him since 2003, or spoke to him since 2004. My wife had 2 boys from her first marriage, that are mine as well. One passed away last year, the other has been living with his girlfriend for six years.

Hobbies: Reading, video games, watching TV, playing board games.

Extra: currently have 3 cats, snake, and a gecko. I am the first person to join OO after Rick created them, I was also once a mod, and I once won a $3000 grill from Maxim Magazine.

I am job...

But seriously:

Age: 49. One of the oldest OOsters (if not the oldest)
Job: Analyst (budget, contracts, RFP's & stuff) for the City of San Jose, California. going on 18 years.

Married: Yes.

Kids: Yes, one. 23 years old and a Senior at UC Merced.

Hobbies: Since about age 43, playing bass in bands. I originally stopped at around age 23-24 because I had to finish school, then real life.

Extra: I have two Miniature Schnauzers, Luigi (11) and Chachi (9). I started reading the News From Dayton (Rick) when I was 26 and my boy was just a few months old. I was an avid WWF watcher and enjoyed the golden era of the IWC until the early 2000's when they started pushing HHH down people's throats. I'm in the 1998 Royal Rumble pre-show holding up a sign that said "SHOW ME THE SUNNY!" I also have a great memory (still) and remember a lot of you guys from back then. 2Hot was the guy who led the welcoming committee when I joined the forums. I almost completely stopped coming around when the pages were taking forever to load.

Age: 43. I look 47.

Job: I operate a fake guillotine at a traveling Renaissance fair

Married: Probably. It was several years ago in Bangkok and we were both intoxicated. Also, she may have been a he. I don't remember his/her name.

Kids: Unlikely. I'm really only into butt stuff.

Hobbies: pizza, prison films, artisanal home brews, glass blowing, DIY emojis, Zodiac Killer trivia

Extra: I used to have a dog until he was raped to death by a neighbor. I live in a school bus parked behind my mom's house. I used to live in a one bedroom apartment above a pirate-themed gay bar called the Poop Deck until I was evicted for having straight sex. I met janerd once at a wrestling show. He had soft hands and fetching smile.

Age: 52 (soon), look 45, feel about 82 mentally/emotionally

Career: effectively over, after being destroyed by the oil price collapse the Saudis deliberately caused in 2014; I was a welding/QC inspector specializing in piping/pipelines, but that's all over now

Race: Caucasian (aka fucking whitey) and please tell me about all the privilege that's supposed to come with it - maybe my portion of it got lost in the mail or something

Status: single, have been for a long time, glad I never had kids for this world, that gets more fucking awful every fucking day, to chew up and grind out; there's always been more than our fair share of doomed little bastards in my family and I'm damn glad I bucked the tradition of spawning more of them for the monsters out there to fuck over

Nationality: Canadian - believe me, there's nothing special about this status at all; this two-faced country is so full of hypocritical self-righteous shit that if it were a person it'd be pouring out of it's ears

Hobbies: golf (formerly, until the leg and back injuries put a stop to that), military model building (formerly, until the financial disaster put a stop to that - lost my home therefore lost my building/painting area), reading (not as much as when I was young, lost interest in things like sci-fi anyway), internet (probably made things much worse thanks to the daily exposure to it's innate toxicity)

Misc:
- like to think I'm a good guy, not that it means anything in this world anymore obviously; done my share of things to be remorseful over though, don't expect forgiveness and don't want it either
- gone politically numb; formerly conservative, not a full liberal either, just can't believe anymore at the rampant victory of indecency and cruelty at all levels now, like a fucking gotterdammerung of everything that used to be moral & ethical falling to pieces
- have a family tradition of prostate cancer and for a long time I've been seriously considering declining any and all treatment if I'm diagnosed; does that count as a form of suicide?
- I have never posted a picture of myself on the internet, not even once

That's me. Endut. Hoch hech.

Pad's posts over the last several months lead me to believe that he could be the next MAGA bomber, just with different motives. His constant negativity and ability to bring the mood down in any situation also reminds me of a former poster named Qonas. Cheer up, man! Alcohol is a depressant and weed might trigger psychosis in those predisposed. Good point about white privilege, though. And can you believe that people continue to push global warming and climate change as a thing even though it just snowed this past winter!?

I'll also say that as an onlooker, CCharger, I approve of your possible marriage. And can I take a guess at your favorite prison film?

Age: 47, will be 48 in a little over a month. And I look it and feel it. What isn't already bald, is gray. I have bad knees and a bad ankle from accumulated sports injuries over the years, and I blew out my elbow pitching as a teenager.

I have been watching wrestling since around 1980. First match I ever saw, my mother showed me Andre the Giant vs. Blackjack Mulligan from a house show on the MSG network.

Been reading/following Rick since the News from Dayton days. Been around long enough on the internet to remember the rec.sport.pro-wrestling Usenet news group.

I live in upstate NY, where we have had 3 seasons in the last 2 weeks.

Job: IT. No not the evil clown, I fix computers and the network at my local community college. Been there 28+ years. I actually helped get our campus on the internet way back when.

Married: Yes, twice.

Kids: Yes. 11 year old son, 9 year old daughter. Both from second marriage.

Hobbies: Gaming (I love having my kids be built in Xbox gaming buddies). Sports. I also coach both my kids in little league. Reading - I love Stephen King. I listen to 80's music, and otherwise I just watch TV. Big fan of Walking Dead.

Extra: I was a volunteer firefighter when I was younger. I am in the middle of having lost about 70 lbs over the last 9 months in an effort to get healthier and make my knees and back feel better. Got as high as 293, down to 224 now and hope to lose the remaining 24 and get down to around 200.





Screw you guys, I'm going home.

As someone who attended a community college in upstate NY 30 years ago, I am curious which community college you are at....
