After 10 or so years...what keeps you coming back here?

I'll respond later when I figure it out myself.

I think Nick was on to something in the other topic: this place is like a little piece of our past that we can always come back to. When the stresses of an adult life start to wear you down, it's nice to have a place where you can go and relax and rip on 10 guys you've never met before (minus you of course Fade, but the last time I saw you was probably about when we started coming here, or maybe even before).

Which is another interesting thing about this place. With the exception of Fade (and cait sith, although he stopped coming a long time ago), I've never met any of you guys. I don't even know what you look like. And yet here we are 10 years later, still sporadically chatting about random shit in this virtual hole-in-the-wall. I guess there's a sense of stabilty here that I like.

Society had a crime problem. It hired cops to attack crime. Now society has a cop problem.

Yeah I don't know, I can't explain it. I've changed so much since the early days of Gensou and The Brink, but I keep checking this site occasionally. Nostalgia, maybe?

Honestly, I've pretty much forgotten who everyone is. I feel like I used to have a distinct relationship with (almost) everyone here and now I have trouble keeping track of who is who, which is sad. And I've never met anyone from here in real life either. Very strange.

Boredom of course.

Boredom's not a burden anyone should bear.

I forget about this place and one day I'll suddenly remember and be like 'welp, time to go post in the ten most recent threads and leave again.'

I probably check this site everyday while I'm taking a shit, before I head to GameFAQs...

I like what Lethal said. It all seems familiar and reminds me of a simpler time.

And even though none of us have really ever met I guess I consider you all friends. It's always nice to catch up with people you know.

I'm sure Blaarg is joking and is/was real life friends with Deuce and Useless.

Right. I forgot about that.

Also, I was going through some old files and came across this: http://imgur.com/1T2jPnN (It's Deuce)

I think that was when I first discovered photoshop and was (am) not very good at it.
