For a while there I was accepting every friend request that came along just for shits and grins. I've since made it mods-only, but if you're someone I know I'll send you a request. (and asking me to send you a request will get your picture and address posted at fatoldmenlookingtoporkyoungboys.com)

For those of you that don't know me, I'm the "cool uncle" of the mod family. I've only got two pet peeves: always use proper punctuation, spelling, and grammar while you're around here. I enjoy reading the forums at a certain pace, and having to decipher the train wrecks of posts around here makes me angry.
Also, don't bother me about mod points. I don't mess with them and tend to ignore any drama caused by them.
Hey kids, it's that time again! In this thread; I'm going to take pics of myself doing what you tell me to do and post them, hopefully garnishering a couple of chuckles from the audience.
So, tell me what to do!
ps: your suggestions better be funny.
So, we have a neat little tool to scan for porn that shouldn't be there, but where do we draw the line? I saw models in dental floss underwear giving the carpet a hug; but since they weren't technically naked, I declined to remove the images and notify the user. How much skin can there be before we should start censoring these horny little teenagers?
Don't think I saw this yet, and I want to see how good you fuckchuckles are at these games. Post your best scores from your favorite Mario 64DS minigames and see how they match up against everyone else. I will personally try and destroy any score that is higher than mine as I've needed to increase the girth on my epenis lately and I need some competition. Let's try and keep this an honest competition and keep the demands for photographic proof of scores down to a minimum.

(this is bit long and boring and I posted this somewhere else, but I need advice)
So... I'm getting older.
I turned 25 in September and recently, people have been advising me to buy a house. Also, I've been seeing a girl for the past year and five months and we've decided to move in together. Long story short, I want to buy a townhouse/duplex and live with her in one side and rent out the other side. I currently rent a room from a guy that built a house in north Austin when he was 24 and I have been living there for three and a half years. To make another long story short, it has been the perfect place to live 95% of the time and I have encountered none of the common roommate problems. We used to party all the damned time and the guy is now like my older brother. I feel like this is a good time in my life to make a change and I want to get a new place.
Here's the skinny on my financial situation: after my last paycheck this year, I will have cleared almost exactly $60,000 for the year. Barring any unforeseen losses of common sense, I plan to be at that job for the next thirty years or so... A steady paycheck is something that I feel comfortable about and I plan to keep seeing them. I started a 401k fund two and a half years ago that is now worth ~$11,000. I can take out up to a $5,000 loan against myself and can choose how long I want to take to pay myself back. It's weird how it works, but I've done it before and it does work. I figure that I could use that money for any sort of down payment that I need make. I also have a VA loan coming to me as I served four years in the US Army, 1997-2001. My inactive-ready-reserve status will be over in June of 2005, at which time I will receive my honorable discharge papers in the mail.
The one thing I am worried about is my credit. I don't currently owe any financial institutions money except for Mitsubishi Motors Credit of America; I'm making the car payments to them; roughly $460/month. I'd say than only about 75% of the payments I've made for the past three and a half years have been on time because I'm a horrible procrastinator. Also, in the past, I had owed ~$1100 dollars to two different institutions for the better part of five years. I thought that I could ignore the debt, but when you change addresses and file tax returns; people have a way of figuring out where you live. Two years ago, I paid off both of those those debts within three months of each other and I haven't incurred any major debt since then. I've never looked at my credit report/credit score but plan to do so at http://www.truecredit.com/ after the first of the year.
If everything goes according to plan, I'd like to be moved in to a new house by the end of August 2005. If I did, then I'd be all:
Here are my questions:
1. The VA loan: I've been told it's easier to go through than a conventional loan; is this true? What is the whole process like?
2. Living in one side/renting the other: anyone done this as well? It sounds like a good idea, but common sense tells me that it could go horribly wrong if the wrong people move in. I've also been told of companies that I can pay to collect rent for me and take care of any repairs that need to be done. Is this true? Has anyone dealt with a company like this before?
3. Moving in with your girlfriend: as cracked up as it's meant to be? Right now, I still have my own place and he has hers, but I'm almost always at hers as it affords us more privacy than at my house. I'm pretty sure I'm ready for it, but we've agreed to take it slow and neither one of us have plans for marriage any time soon. She just graduated from UT two weeks ago and she'll be a bilingual elementary Spanish teacher by August, making roughly $33,000/year. I hope this is enough so that she can pay for her fair share of the mortgage/utilities.
I've obviously given this tons and tons of thought but have yet to move past getting information for this kind of stuff online. If anyone has serious practical advice for me, I'd really, really appreciate it and maybe post some more pictures from my /images folder that are LOL.
Simple. Post where you've lived, in chronological order. Feel free to add links to maps and how many years you lived there and/or what year you moved.
