Seriously, I'm reading some of this crap and I just don't get it. "I made a lower out of bamboo" or "I served in Iraq and shot this guy on full auto from 100 yds and hit with every shot."

Are people so lonely they need attention from others on a message board? (I realize how contradictory this is me starting a post about attention-mongering, but I'm just trying to procrastinate writing my IR 301 exam).

Seriously though - I have video games, movies and of course my evil black rifle if I want to escape into fantasy land. I just don't understand why people feel the need to make up BS to impress other people sitting infront of their computers who they will probably never see. To top it off, their BS usually stinks so bad they can't even cover it up with bad grammar and lousy spelling.

Have any studies ever been done on this phenomenon?

I have a friend that lies about the most trivial things. Lying is second nature to him and he thinks nothing of it. Maybe some of these people are the same.

I love how some of these "internet gun experts" post how this gun or that gun is a pos. Most of it is just some BS they read somewhere else, probably by someone that don't even own the gun they are talking about.

To get their post counts up, of course. How do you think all those guys get 10000+ post counts?

BTW, did I ever tell you about the time I built a nuclear submarine with toothpicks and bubble gum?

I have my *own* personal saviors, I change 'em every hour, I don't give a fuck if there's life after death, I want to know if there's even any god damn *Slack* after death! I have a triple nose, I was sired by the Anti-Virgin, give me *all* your Slack! I'm *fuel-injected*! They say a godzillion is the highest number there is. Well by God! I count to a godzillion and *one*! Come *on* and give me cancer, I'll spit up the tumor and butter my *bread* with the juice! I've packed the brownies of the space monsters, I leak the Plague from my brows, opiates are the *mass* of my religion, *I wipe the *Pyramids* off my shoes before I enter *my* house!* My droppings bore through the earth and erupt *volcanoes* in *the Atlantis Zoo*!

Praise Bob and stamp out the Pink.

Toothpicks and bubble gum? Amatuer. I built an aircraft carrier out of compost and urine.

I've known people like that too. And then they wonder why you double check everything they do, and why you don't trust them with anything....

Just because you are aware of the irony of your post doesn't justify it. If ya don't like it.............
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 7:10:58 PM EDT
Because people want to feel important. People feel that if people notice them they are great and powerful and most importanly, important. This is the same reson people have troll acounts. They are so pitiful they beleive that if they lie to people they will never meet there life will have improved.

Eh, it was just practice. One of my real projects was building a stupidity reverser (out of bubble wrap and Wolf ammo). I hooked it up to the State of California, and wound up with the Starship Enterprise.

I think it's also important to consider the OTHER SIDE of this "phenomenon"

Absolutely, there are a bunch of posers on this site, ranging from those who try to invent a completely fictional fantasy persona on the internet, to the people who just lie about a particular thing (like serving in the military, or in an elite units), to people that just have strong opinions about things they don't know much about.

However, it's also worth remembering that there are TONS of people here with really diverse and fascinating backgrounds - and the range of amazing things that members on this site have experience are no doubt quite unbelievable at times.


I mean - I've never told a lie on this site - but how unlilkely do some of the things I claim sound???

.. I mean, who really believes I'm NOT Dutch .
