    I was listening to Slipknot the other day, just because.

    Nirvana is OK but I'm not overly fussed with them that much. There's a couple of songs I like but in general there's many other groups I'd rather listen to. I personally think Nirvana is overly hyped.

    No Tool on the list yet...
    Slipknot is my number one band, if you want I can make you a list of best songs. There are some quite agressive, and again some of them are very touchy.

    For example, my favourite song of all time is Vermilion, both parts. Just listen to it, you won't regre it.

    I've come to a very interesting conclusion... Slipknot is like a harder version of Nine Inch Nails... I know some people would look at that and go 'what?' but that's what I get out of it. Nine Inch Nails is not really that hard, in general.

    I wouldn't want to try any online dating or long distance relationships.

    I'd be more inclined to meet someone through some sort of shared interest, such as a volunteer organisation.
    Yeah that sounds nice. I have heard of a lot of stories like that or starting that way. So sweet.

    It's not as weird as you think. I know of several women who don't want kids. My wife being one. :)

    I understand the pressures that are put on married women and men to have children. Some communities are have more pressure than others due to cultural or religious reasons.

    There has been big pushes in media about 'motherhood' (especially) being some great accomplishment and I get that being a parent is a tough job these days but popping out a kid is no great accomplishment it's been happening for millennia. Getting it to be quiet at restaurant.. .now that's an accomplishment.

    I do have very unflattering opinions about parenting I have to admit...
    I laughed. I think I need more people in my life who are about the child-free lifestyle, as the current people are always shocked and then we have the ones who like to ask if I'm sure or if I will change my mind (no).

    My dad has been after me for grandchildren for the past 5 years, so...
    I feel for you. Is he still as persistent? My parents like to say that they want to be not too old to play with their grand kids all the time to my older sibling (my sister). Fortunately she wants kids, so that makes it easier for me. Still terrified of becoming an aunt though...

    Online dating can be a minefield. The singles scene in NYC is more cutthroat than the hunger games at work 99 when through last fall...
    I have heard as much. I can only imagine in NYC, as it seems like you all have so much choice but I know that's what it seems like lol.

    I don't know if it's a phenomenon over there but there's this odd idea that kids can take their scooters anywhere they want with them. It drives me nutty... then there's the roller shoe...

    The people I've met who are 'child free' have been a mix bunch. Some are child free by accident, by medical condition and others by choice. The main issue is finding the 'normal' ones. I use the term normal loosely.

    Key thing is having other things in common with them besides being just 'child free'. Not always easy. Some can be a bit weird. Most are nice though.

    I think I have seen that with skateboards only.

    Noted, thanks for this. I'm going to keep that in mind about the normal ones. I totally agree on having something else in common, it would just be cool to have someone to relate to on that really.

    This is true, but I'm like super clueless. I don't like that babies might be needy, I don't know how to talk to small children. I have never changed a diaper or babysat a kid. I kind of did that once (the babysitting) and I hated it. Kids just don't mesh with me at all. Kids from 4 and up that have been potty trained and the like, seem a little less annoying to me.

    As for a slightly lighter topic, I read an interesting article on Android Authority yesterday.

    It’s not you, it’s your Android: confession of singles with iPhones

    tl;dr if you can't/don't want to click: Apparently people dating other people, care about the kind of the phone they have. Note that this info is from the US but still.

    Quotes to sum it up:

    According to the data, iPhone users are 21 times more likely to judge you negatively for having an Android device. But the feeling is mutual, it seems. Android users are 15 times more likely to judge you negatively for being an iPhone owner.
    And for those of you who aren’t too keen on updating your device every year or two? Tough luck. Whether you have an iPhone or an Android, having an old model makes you 56 percent less likely to get a date, according to the survey....The usual assumption is that the inability to upgrade your device after two years equates to financial instability.
    Of course the comment section is interesting, and I shared my thoughts, but seriously?

    I never had any children, nor did I want any.

    That wouldn't be an issue anymore at my age, and if I were to get married, it would be to someone who either doesn't have children or his children are adults by now.

    That somewhat makes sense. One girl actually noticed me for having a Widows phone, that is both of us had the 640s. Unfortunately I managed to avoide that one too. It's unfortunate 'case she's pretty much the prettiest girl in school, soo...

    That's really cool! I find people who have phones that aren't iOS or Android a little more interesting. I don't know how common Windows Phone is where you are but it's very uncommon in the US. To date, I have only met one guy who had a 640 XL about a year ago and another gal I see at work sometimes had a 640 too.

    Edit: I switch between the three OSes so kind of having a superiority complex over someone using one or the other is laughable.

    I'm all up for having kids, securing the survival of specie etc. On the other hand, there's already too many of us on the planet, so having less kids wouldn't be such a bad idea, lol.

    It's not that common here either. But I've seen ones from time to time. The girl I mentioned has a Windows phone, one of my closest friends has an old 920 (she actually had it way before we got ours WPs), a bartender at our pub has a 650 and my Latin professor has a 950. Interesting thing about the professor, she actually had a 920 as well, but it got broken somehow while she still had a warranty, and it was apparently not her fault, she was given a malfunctioning device and since they had no more 920s in stock she got a 950. She asked me if she should complain or not, I just told her to keep quite :D.

    Why is this Outlook so complicated. Why couldn't they make it simple just like Google's mail. I've changed my Live name and photo, but I can't change the Outlook details, at least I can't find the place to do it.

    NIN: Wish

    Oh, and here is a link to my AMV (Anime Music Video) page... There is a link to the AMV I did for Wish on that page: http://www.sinime.com/animevideos/index.htm
