    Who else feels like ranting about the repetitive nature of some subjects here on the forum, for example:

    - I am 20 something and my love life sucks / can't find a boyfriend.
    - Monogamy / Open Relationships
    - Is he gay?
    - Circumcision
    - Locker room nudity
    - Should I move or stay at my current location?

    Those same subjects keep coming and coming. I know that once in a while everybody likes to have the spotlight for themself, but the search box is there for a reason.

    Meh, you're at that early transitioning to mid-point in your RJ residency where you initially encounter this. You'll eventually be lulled by the repetitiveness and not care, or rather care but not really care...if that makes any sense.

    Ariodante, I'm curious to know if you're ever surprised by a thread or comment, or have you been on the forums long enough to feel you've seen it all?

    The only unique threads are the current events related ones. Anything revolving around life, love and jockstraps has been done a million times. I've only been on RJ since 2008 though (I have a previous account I deleted then made a new one a few months later which is my current one), so other RJers have been here long before me.

    Repetition not only expresses, nay, celebrates (did you like that, nay, celebrates?) the similarity of individuals but also offers opportunity to consider the same anew.

    During the years of dealing with mom's Alzheimer's, I made a game out of her repetition, particularly on days when she'd ask me the very same thing a dozen times. I never got frustrated with her unyielding, unchanging questions, not just because I loved her but I loved hearing her voice, I loved my interactions with her and I knew that one day soon I wouldn't have that anymore and I 'd have to live the rest of my life without her.

    So each time I'd find a slightly different way of answering her very same question. I'd add detail that I hadn't included before. I'd relate the story to other incidences that I hadn't thought to connect before. I'd ask her questions that I hadn't asked before. I was so thorough in finding new ways of relating the same information, so desperate to keep our conversations fresh that instead of lulling me into the great blasé, I embraced that challenge.

    Even while my mother is now sadly dead, I continue to embrace this very same challenge each day with every fresh cup of my morning coffee.

    How to get RJ members to notice you..

    - Post cute/mindless topics that don't require any brain power or personality to answer.

    - Search the forums for old topics that got a lot of replies. Then start a new thread with the very same topic/question.

    - Start threads that mock/berate others.. twinks, old guys in the locker room, bros that wear knee high socks at the gym, etc.

    Oh look, an opportunity to hijack a thread

    Probably little known about Karr was his love of plants. And it just so happens that I've an Alphonse Karr bamboo planted as the highlight to a walk down what will soon grow into a 100+ ft long bamboo cathedral on one side of my garden (it actually will extend around most of the property's perimeter, eventually.)

    Section of the bamboo tunnel (done in alternating seabreeze & graceful bamboos with a backdrop to one side of Asian lemon and golden Hawaiian)

    The Alphonse Karr in question

    Completely unrelated visitor to my gardens yesterday, a red-shouldered hawk, I believe.

    And now back to the same ol' same ol'.

    you forgot the random (and often hilarious) "n e hot guyz want 2 skype add me hotsexymuscleguy2u4413" thrown in occasionally and resurrected by (?) faceless new profiles often.

    Why thank you, Madame....


    I love bamboo too and finally have a right-sized property to enjoy growing them. I've currently got well over 200 clumps of more than 18 species. The collection will be limited, however, because I only want to plant clumpers, not runners, which tend to be tropical but I'm only in the semi-tropics. So some stuff might exhibit top kill during bad freezes but their rhizomes should survive to put up new shoots the following season.

    Not sure as to Karr's growing habit but I'd imagine in another year it will look more like this:

    Love your Karr quote. Think I will engrave it into a garden sign, sign it by the author and stake it by his namesake.

    See, it isn't true that no1Karr.

    After being on here for 6 years, you really learn to recognize those threads. You realize guys at different ages have different interests. Guys just coming out need to talk about it. So you just skip those threads . Problem solved. When you are really adroit, you can slip over postings in a thread without a flinch. icon_wink.gif

    And you also know if you want a lot of hits on your thread, just put "Underwear" in the title...whether it belongs there or not. icon_lol.gif

    There, I added one for you.
