How LBA and this forum is the basis for my life

Well as a kid my life was LBA. Then, on this very forum, I found out you could play LBA on the PSP. I had a PSP so wanted to do this very badly! In order to do this, you had to hack the PSP, so I then became knowledgeable on how to hack a PSP. This led me to make my own PSP hacking website, which became very successful and occupied a reasonable era in my life. Running that PSP website led me to make other websites and learn how to design them in Photoshop.

I am now a web designer: http://edmundreed.co.uk.

Thanks LBA for guiding me along the correct paths in life!

Congratulations

Its the base's of my life too - I met the love of my life here, moved country to be with her, and am living very happily indeed.

I have much to thank LBA and the MBN for.
Of course, theres downsides too....being self employed my wages are probably 1/4th of what they could be due to time wasted browsing this site :P

I have much to thank LBA's and MBN too, for a thousand reasons I wouldn't feel like writing down here, for I'd end up forgetting something.

DF.

I think everyone who used this site actively, as grown up in every aspect.

Just some key points for me:
  • Got in touch with the world (a lot of nationalities united for one cause)
  • I've learn English (I know I still have a lot to learn, but my firsts words on this forum were using a dictionary)
  • Made me learn a lot about Programming (instead of going into Mechanical engineering degree, I had taken Computer Science degree)
  • Met a lot of great people here (I can say I have friends here)

You know, I remember I started LBA2 in french the first time when I was a child, and it got me using the dictionary a lot as well... The very first time I used a dictionary was because of this great game...
But then I learned how to set the language to english

Haha, my mother is an English teacher so she always used to translate the dialogue in LBA2 for us (me & my brother) when we were little. Nevertheless, we had learned quite a few English words by the time we completed the game.

You know, I think my huge love for cloudy windy days and storms come from this game! I spent a lot of time in the first part of the game (I didn't know english very well, and on top of that, I had some trouble with the bug that lets you go to desert island with rain), and I loved the whole LBA world so much...

I don't know... I find nearly every girl pretty, but none of them outstanding...

And I can't just walk to someone and say, "Hey, how about going ou together not seriously, to make new experiences ?"

It might not sound wrong, but I don't think anyone would accept that from a stranger...

I didn't say it was easy...but if you meet people and you talk, well anything can happen.

Actually that relationship did not go so well, so the MBN owes me something now.

Any religion is fine man! Really, as long as no one tries to think they are better than the other, or tries to convince others, it's fine.

That's like 1 in a million.

If you want a gf then surfing the internet and forums is not your best shot lol

As long as both the people want that, it's fine. You just don't say in that explicit way...
But that wouldn't really be "having a gf"

How can I put it... I believe a loving relationship is the only one where the two parties do not need to... "like" eachother. After all, the first purpose of such a thing is sex...
If two people fight everyday, but enjoy the time when they are in bed, better than anything else they know, the chance that they will stay together is bigger than if they have the most interesting discussion, enjoy eachother's company but are bored in bed...

That doesn't mean you could go with anyone, there are different levels of desire. A man could probably make love to any woman, it's the instinct, but he would desire only a very few. And desiring isn't necesseraly wanting to have sex with, but enjoying seeing her, enjoying watching her move her arm upward... and never get tired of it, liking that the same way after more than 40 years...

That's why love is such an amazing relationship, it's enjoying being with a person who is not a member of your family, and probably couldn't be your friend !


(All that point of view is (sadly) only theoritical, as I had only one girlfriend ~7 years ago, and of course, I can't recall precisely what I felt back then.)

Well some people say love is learnt.

Anyway, long shot.

Besides, how are you gonna find all that if you are not willing to get to know a girl you like.

And be careful with that friendzone thing, very dangerous.

Thanks Zee
I was waiting for that since the subject popped up

And, Kasia and Zee, as girls, what are your thoughts about that so-called "friendzone" ? I always thought it was just a stupid way for boys to blame somone over something that has no reason...

I've been friendzoned before, it's annoying, I just told her I was not gonna be her friend and left.

And then I friendzoned a girl, and now I know how women feel when doing it lol.
