    Naw we toss posts in the bin all the time. Spammers, prophets, preachers.looking for flocks, general ingrates...a plethora have flown through over the years.

    We are highly tolerant but our goal is respectful conversation. Folks either blend in because that resonates or modify their behaviour for this site....or move on.

    Choices.

    Let’s see I like, Eminem, lady Gaga, Vance Joy, lumineers, Ed Sheeran, Atmosphere, and Aesop Rock for music. Movies include Attila battle angel, inception, Lucy 2014, Saving private Ryan, and tombstone just to name a few. I loved dr who and lost in space as a child.

    As for being introverted or extroverted I swing both ways depending on if I am bored or not.

    In your above comments you claim everyone has problems. Always interesting to hear statements like this. I don’t remember the name of this old movie, I think the main actor was Jean - Claude Van Damme. In the movie he was a martial artist that got blinded. I remember that he thought his life was at an end until he decided to take time and figure his situation out. Once he took time and figured himself out he realized he had no problem. I try to use this same approach to understanding myself and those around me.

    Problems are what you make them out to be, not all of us have problems.

    I still ponder the idea that you can determine a persons life by calculating various statistical data together to generate a life - timeline of each individual. In those thoughts I never concluded that using movies and music would provide a usable pool of data to build on.

    Just some rambling, the whole everyone has problems thing caught my attention.

    I was the leader of a Dr. Who club in High School. I was also the leader of a computer club in Middle School and High School but I somehow ended up co-founding the Dr. Who club, too. I don't remember a lot of it because it was the same year that my medication messed me up for a few months but I do remember that we had custom t-shirts with Galifreyan writing on them.

    I'd post the shirt but the Galifreyan is just our school name so I'd essentially be doxxing myself.

    I never saw the classic series. I saw all of the 9th, 10th, and 11th Doctors but I sort of gave up after they blew up the moon in an allegory for the pro-life movement.

    May he find a home that suits his personality and soothes his soul.

    I appreciate it when troubled folk find their way here and then find a way to fit in.

    I feel we are somewhat an island of misfit toys finding our way to make someones life better.

    I grew up with the fourth dr who, Tom Baker. I basically stoped watching it all the time after him, the others just did not speak to me as much.

    Jeez, @Ella S., you know how to make someone feel old!

    Yes, I remember the first series, with William Hartnell!

    Dropped in and out of subsequent Doctors. I did enjoy the Russell T Davies reboot, although recently it's taken a dive. Looking forward to Russell T again next year, although really enjoyed Steven Moffat's nightmare creations ... Weeping Angels anyone ... ?

    I vaguely remember a professor (not one of mine) who proudly wore a copy of Tom Baker's Doctor's scarf. Heck, he was the faculty advisor for the university's Doctor Who club! The last time I saw him was back when GenCon was still in Milwaukee (so many celebrities visited that convention...)

    I also remember watching the fourth and fifth Doctors (I gave the sixth Doctor a chance but stopped watching a couple of months into him, switching over to anime.) I cannot watch any of the more recent series even if I was interested due to not having a television (not wanting one even if I was offerred!)
