I found a wallet with around $500 in it and returned it.

The owner needed the money to take a bus to visit family.

Threads like these are depressing. Twenty people doing their best to detail their strength of character and yet not a single one seems genuinely interested in conversation. It's like you've all found the great fountain of braggery and struggle to tell your own short, middling stories of selfless generosity before the thread inevitably collapses under the weight of its own uselessness.

Take the time to learn about these people. A-4-year-old went to Jamaica to build houses for Christ's sake (;)), ask him about it. Or about One Gram's stint in basic. Or jrgp's websites. I can't fathom how you might all complain about the lack of community on this forum when you aren't even interested in the community.

You can find me in the masturbation thread. At least that one is somewhat more interesting (and yes, 4yo, Gram, and jrgp, I actually want to hear about your lives; take the time to answer, with pictures and words of gratitude for my interest, preferably).

This is pretty quotable.
Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?
Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?

Okay, VijchtiDoodah:

Stuff I've made:
  • http://www.jrgp.org/ - Old flash gaming site I made in 2004 (I was 11). I used to love flash games and played them all the time and tried to get as many games as possible on that site. Now I'm not so interested and haven't done a major change to it in years. I do use the domain for all my stuff, though.
  • http://soldat.jrgp.org/ - My old Soldat fansite, it has some of my maps/mods/interfaces and a little more. It used to have a much more interesting layout, but now it's just simple for emphasis on content.
  • http://tms.jrgp.org/ - My Soldat mapping site. I had wanted to make a site like this since I created soldat.jrgp.org and eventually Ivel motivated me in 2007.
  • http://stupidasfuck.com - A story submitting site I made in early 2009. Not popular at all.
  • http://zcsp.jrgp.org/ - Little site I made for my friend since 1st grade, Zack when we were in 7th. Hasn't been updated for like ever, but still works.
  • I've also made a somewhat popular porn site, PM me over AIM/MSN if you want to see it.
  • http://www.jrgp.us/ - points to my local static IP address. I host some stuff on it and use it to get into my computer and access files from afar.

  • You can see an older version of my game site here, and never finished ideas for a new layout here.
  • There are a few projects I did for web design here, the npp lessons one being something my teacher had me do in place of a normal project, which she gave me 100% for. (meh, it looks horrible in anything except ie7 :()

Stuff I've done for others:
  • http://www.wphsclassof79.com/ - I made the layout. A lot of CSS. Uses many layerd background images made in Fireworks
  • http://www.wphs.ocps.net/ - I occasionally update pages' content. (my teacher logs me in as herself, which gives me access to the site's control panel
  • http://writewaydesigns.com/ - Over the years, I've changed and added dynamic features to my mom's site. She's made probably 97% of it, though.
  • I've also helped random people out with sites in the past, I can't really remember much about them though

There are also loads of old templates and site ideas floating around on some of my old hard drives and massive .tar.gz archives that a probably corrupt, but oh well.

Not popular at all.
Probably because you've already got ads at the top of the page before you've even had time to get any traffic at all.  The biggest detractor from a new website are ads. that's why websites like fuckmylife, which got popular around the time you put SAF online, got popular around the time you put SAF online.

Kudos to everyone that used their generosity in means of hard work and time spent helping. I honestly can't say I'll invest time in helping people who are not needy or close to me unless it has any slight gain for me in it.

When it comes to simple gifts or money though, I'm pretty generous (when I can afford it). I just bought a stolen subwoofer from some guy and tipped him 60$ just for installing it in the car, which is pretty simple.
When I'm broke I'm cheapskate as hell - to the point of lying about not having 5$ to chip in for a pizza.

Buddy I already put up some information about my basic but no one wanted the stories I guess. Which sucks because I have them ranging from singing "It's raining men" with 6 other dudes in the shower to me getting suckerpunched in the dark.

Took a court case for someone else. Ended up getting me in some deep shit, but I wouldn't change it. Although I guess it wasn't very generous since I wouldn't change it, hmm?
Maybe on a grander scale, I would have to say that giving some people some of my time when they needed it more than me.

You need to be more specific on which bushes you're talking about.

Hey I'd love to hear about some of this! I've somewhat considered entering the military myself, but even if I never do I still enjoy just about everything connected with it. Military history, weaponry, anecdotes, etc. Bring it on. :)

More like, was she a worthwhile person? Isn't that usually the more important question?
