That’s an 80s show. Starred Johnny Depp. Didn’t watch it though but I remember something about it. Johnny Depp being in it is about all I remember about it.

I remember Dom Delouise – loved him. Carol Burnett – seen all her shows. I mostly avoided pop culture from about 1987-1994 and regained an interest in pop culture around 1995-2016.

So, there’s a blank spot I’ve been filling in very slowly from that time period and there’s lots of missing pop-culture parts.

Ah. All the less reason to watch it then: If I’m a living embodiment of it then I don’t need to see it reflected on the TV.

But, I was raised on TV after school specials, the GI Joe “words of wisdom”, Captain Planet, Wonder-Twins-Activate, He-Man era, Smurfs, so I suspect it’s just a part of the time-frame.

Yeah, I don’t take what Gary says personally. Got no reason to. But I listen and response. Goes back to civility. Basic stuff for me.

I wasn’t ALWAYS this good at it of course. It’s a learned skill. Sword sharpens sword. I used to get hit by sarcasm and passive-aggression as a kid. 3rd grade it was bad.

But 4th and beyond, the shields started coming up and my swords came out. Just gets easier and easier smile emoticon Should’ve seen me around the mean-girls in middle school; I could defend any kid they were after, whether me or someone else, and they’d curl their makeup lips and walk away.

I haven’t taken your seriously from the 1st moment you responded. I mean, I take _you_ seriously, but not what you say. Gotta read between the lines. It’s a game. I play it. That’s why I’m here.

I’d appeal to whatever shred of humanity they had. Make them feel bad. Total passive-aggressive moves on my part. The leader wouldn’t budge: leaders are usually true sociopaths – but the followers would get it.

I stole antiperspirant in the 7th grade because a teacher told me I stank and needed and was too embarrassed to ask for money. That’s about as deep as my wickedness goes.

You nailed me bruh. It’s why I stay on the light side.

Of course. It’s metaphorical. A commonly understood cultural reference point.

You’re killing time before you die. This is likely a better alternative than other things you might be doing at this time. You’re engaging with people online that mildly amuse you at best, whose company is better than a pillow, and engaging in a way that beats a needle in the arm.

Gary doesn’t bother me being here. To me this is like a bar. Get together, talk about whatever. I’m online ’cause it beats sleeping right now and I take whatever comes at me as it comes.
