Default How has ISH impacted your real life?

Discuss the various proz and conz your fav basketball forum OTC has given to you.

  • Goodthangs
    - Introduces you to a broader spectrum of music firsthand by reading the various threads and putting an "LJJ" or a "Playtetris" on your buddy list.
    - Allows you to read an unadulterated version of someone's feelings/thoughts manifested into text a la Starface. Something most folkz would lack the courage to express en la vida real.
    - Killz stress by taking it out on the reprostitutes.
    - Allows you to exercise differerent personalities w/o being stared at funnily or misunderstood or slapped by your friends.

Bad
- Killz your time management skills.
- Detracts from your grades and limits your social life

How bout y'all!?

On a more serious note, my girlfriend has caught some of my infamous bull**** stories on here, and she didn't think they were funny at all. In fact, it seems to somewhat piss her off, and I can't figure out why. Why do you care so much babe?

She also found out about the whole /\bstract HIV/AIDS thing, and she thinks I need therapy, on the realz.

I can't help it I'm a big kid sometimes - and ISH just happens to be my playground. What's the harm in that?

I actually have to stop myself from telling people about some of the ish that goes on around this ISH forum.

"yeah this guy on the internet was saying..."

can't be starting sentences this way and expect to be taken seriously.

It's cool with some of the threads b/c you find out things you would never find anywhere else. Like, I never would've known about the porno during the super bowl, the fact that scientists brought back an extinct animal, etc.

Yes. Some of the crazy drama that goes on here. Especially when I've just logged of and meet up with someone, I can't keep some of the crazy stuff to myself.

Improving my English ability is a big plus for me. Makes me feel like I'm doing something productive.
