I put down witty too, no point in false modesty with yourself.

I think this is a losing game - I don't think people are very good judges of themselves. I've seen too many people in public and wonder what they were thinking when they looked in the mirror in the morning and stepped out the front door. I think the same goes on here with what we write and how we interpret the responses. I think most people are thinking about the next thing they're going to write vs really listening or reading. They've already got their mind made up.

In all honesty I don't know what others think of me on here - anymore than my impression of others is how they think I perceive them.

If the question was how do I see myself, that's easy. But I try not to spend my life second guessing others - it becomes a dangerously self obsessed trait.

Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.

Think I'm seen as a mentor, guru, inspiration, Jedi master. That kinda thing.

It's interesting to see how people have changed, as well as their views, during their years on here. I remember carefree, student Penk when he first got on here and now he's a stoic Swede, like the country he's adopted.

In all seriousness, it's been interesting to see how the young folks who came on here, you, Ed, Django, Markus, Fireplug, etc., have moved around and had families. Fireplug posted a photo of his son in skater gear on Facebook and I responded, "Hello halfpipe, goodbye parents' bowel control."

I remember when Steve was riding fast motorcycles all over the place. Karma's a bitch.

I've still got a fast motorcycle. And a couple of times a year I ride it in an excruciatingly sensible manner, at around half the speed I used to. I'm still relevant, damn it. And I'll soon be back to skiing and MMA and all those dangerous things too, just as soon as I get time, my back sorts itself out, I lose this weight I seem to have put on, and perhaps have a nap.

Sounds like me and basketball. When I. . . If I. . .

Shooting the basketball at a neighborhood court, some guy who wanted to play asked why i didn't play more.

I told him over Xmas vacation, I vowed to play every day. I shot around once and this was my first time back. . . a month later.

He was 35.

I'm 56.
