Hi bobbym and Agnishom

Welcome to the forum!

Here lies the reader who will never open this book. He is forever dead.

Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most. ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment

Did you have your own intro thread too?

Why are we greeting people we already know?

Why do you need to know the ages of people?

Okay.

It is because that I am pseudo-crazy that I need to greet known people.

I used to greet 200 people a day that I did not know.

Nope I am way to grouchy for that. I would just say hello to passing cars in the street while I walked.

I laugh in a strange way. It is like the way villains laugh in movies. Extremely loud.

We can change it a bit:

Clearer?

I have never encountered any person or creature that was crazier than I.

I was just thinking of how a supposedly intelligent scientist could say the same thing the idiot said?
