1. I read the original post of every thread unless it's too long.
2. Most of time I just read short replies. But well that depends whose reply
is. For example I usually read Astronuc's posts.

4. A person who usually doesn't write alot in every single post unless it
would be a serious issue or s/he has to.
5. 11AM

Need to give some examples? :uhh:

1. Most of them. Once in a while I skip one.
3. I like the threads with lots of fun stories (like the current one on injuries), or very creatively funny posts, like zooby's contributions to the Stupid Quetion thread.
4. Not sure how to answer this one. I enjoy reading contributions of almost everyone, for a lot of different reasons.
5. Whenever there's a lot of activity; I check in a lot, whenever I have little bits of idle time here and there during the day, as well as while having my morning coffee. You guys are usually my dinner companions too, but I don't eat at regular times, so that doesn't help much, does it?

1. Not all, just the subjects that interest me, or that I think I can participate in without screwing it up.
2. I start with the first page.... if the discussion is good, I read the next and so on... if it starts to go off topic, I skip to the last page... if there are more than 5 pages, I read the first, maybe the second... then skip to the last few comments to see where it's going... If I can't say anything new or add a perspective, I stay out of it.
3. I tend to like opinion polls, political threads, threads that pertain to life (advice) and funny stuff... there was this one with the cartoon physics... it was pretty funny.
4. I like reading perspectives from: The Smoking Man, SOS2008, Smurf, loseyourname, Skyhunter, russ_watters, Ian Seeking, moonbear is always fair and a few I can't remember right now. I find Heman important to the mix despite the clarity of his content, and having other insights from some other members who will remain nameless are also good too.
5. The best hours are whenever I have time to... I leave my computer on until it goes on standby... so it looks like i'm here but i'm probably not. :tongue:

Start a new name? You didn't get what I mean. What do you want to do at home? Suppose one of the PF'er give wrong information to your wife about why you spend so much time in this site and I don't want to think what would happen to you after that :uhh: :uhh:

:uhh: Really? But I'm afraid women around here to think I btray them. Yu knw I started "How much men and women know each other" so thet men and women would share their insights, but almost none of them shared any kind of important insights which help me.

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: what his wife would think if she see your alert, arildno?

i. Yep, I read all the new threads in GD (althought rarliy comment!)
ii. It depends on the lenght of the thread, if it was started in the small hours and it is 3+ pages long then i normally can be @rsed.
iii. Funny ones, I loved the Moonbear attempt at killing thr thread killier champs threads and then the poor victimisation of Franzbear :rofl: . I also like things like Yummy receipys, things that have a practical purpose.
iv. My Fav PFs Well Artman cracks me up, his caption comp ... captions are a hoot. As Ive allready mentioned Moonbear in thread killing mode, Atronuc for his insite, Wolram and Brewnog (fellow brits *stands and salutes*), EVO :!!) (look out smurf that wedding will never happen ), Well to be honest i think all PF`ers are my kinda people since i keep coming back .
v. Not too sure about this one i think it varies, but since we all live in different time zones and there seem to be more people from across the pond, the later hours are best!

Are you sure about that? If I was married and my husband was ignoring me to spend time online, somehow I think I'd prefer if he was viewing porn rather than sites about physics. :rofl: At least with porn, she might be able to join in and enhance the experience. :uhh:

I think it can be troublesome than real porn if your frame gets distracted!
if unobjectively you fell in love with any hottie here( :!!) ),the story can change over time! :rofl:
