    Yes indeed. 😲
    That should have been an awesome thread, but nobody participated.

    Makes me think everyone here is just fat, lazy and sitting at their keyboards all day.....oh wait a minute.....😏

    So I did participate.

    If we paraphrase you tried to elicit praise or at least sympathy for your trying to keep in shape.

    Where exactly is the intellect there?

    You could have tried to be philosophical about it (mind body interaction,...) you could have been psychological about it (internal vs. external Motivation, perceived values vs. socially atrtributed values,...) you Chose not to, but you do ascribe intelligence to that?

    I am far too dumb to see that. 🙁

    Lets look at Thread 177279:
    In the 'Revelations' thread, FMF revealed that sometimes he wears no underpants. Not sure if he was joking, but it got me thinking.....why do we wear underwear? Is it necessary?

    I know I'm more comfortable wearing them, as a 'barrier', so to speak, lol.

    What about you?


    So we do have: FMF starting a thread.
    You uttered a thought which I would rate rather trivial than intellectually stimulating (using underwear as barrier).

    Please Point me to the brilliancy!

    Hey Einstein, it was a thread to see what people are doing, or not doing to stay in shape. And to possibly find out what motivates them.

    That particular thread did not require my brilliance. 🙄

    You need to change from 'Zen Master' back to what's appropriate: 'Arrogant Atheist'.

    😏 was used far too much by RJHinds. He basically ruined it for me.

    I think I've probably used 😞 more than any other except maybe the basic 🙂 or 😛

    Yes, Hinds did indeed sour the use of 😏 but I feel like enough time has gone by to reclaim it.

    😞 Is likewise my 'go to' emoticon, as I am so frequently depressed by the forum posting of other users.

    Personally I think you are a combination of 😠😕😞🙂😴
