    If you were going to save something or a record of yourself that best describes you, a passion or activity you do for a person 100 years from now, what would that be?

    For me it would be one of my published writings ( but hard to chose which ones): the first article I ever wrote for a newspaper in junior high, a catalog of my writings down through the years and/or a copy of the non-fiction book I am writing.

    Looks like no gay men (on this Internet site at least) want to preserve a bit of the past to show to future generations how we lived. Sad...

    jprichva saidI'd let them read my unpublishable novel.


    You know, a single sentence consisting of 143,000 words does not qualify as a novel.

    Kickass contender for your average RJ post, though.

    That is different.

    RJ has emoticons.

    My Ex (now best friend- go figure) takes a video of himself every year, for the past 6 years. Just a 3 second clip of a cute little wink. It started as something he did for me while I was deployed and he just kept doing it. Kinda weird, but neat in a way.

    I would print out a poster from any of my profile pics (face pics) minus the blurry one with shitty ass resolution.

    That seems to be another gene that has passed me by. I don't feel any need or urge to leave something of myself to posterity and absolutely don't care whether I will be remembered or not.

    what makes you think that your novel would be so important for future generations? nothing is forever. Now is forever.

    Oh, maybe you mean twelve hours and four minutes. Possibly?


    DRAT!!! That is like the third time this week I thought four minutes had passed and it turned out it was a whole night.
