Just the opposite: I think you are correct...

As one who posed the question, posted it, are waiting for responses to it...therefore that ultimately defines you as that person, questioner, member, poster etc.....ergo "someone"...not "no-one" but at the very minimum...you are at least the above.

You asked for questions, got one from me, answered it...as "someone who posted the original query".

Therefore, you are not defined as a "nobody"...but a "somebody-someone" posing a question. At the very least.

PS What color is the sky in your world?!

Ok. What makes you claim you are nobody special? We are all special in some way.


There is no quantifiable quality that I possess that isn't readily available in the majority of Humankind.


Do most people see multiple UFOs?

I do not know. But having experienced something my mind cannot accurately interpret is no more astounding than cavemen worshiping lightning.


According to surveys I've seen, 1 person out of 10 has seen a UFO. That makes you special, in at least one way.

Rare accomplishments and experiences make people rare, hence special.

Life is special, so everyone is special. Rare people are more so.

Ok, if you wish to discuss the fine points of grammar, you are entirely correct. Although contextually, the sentence implies that while my existence obviously makes me 'someone', I am not a special or remarkable 'someone'.
And it's a fading blue, with the beginning of sunset colors in the west.

I admire the joy your philosophy likely imparts on your life and the lives of those around you.
My pragmatism would argue that being an exception does not necessarily make one exceptional.

That looks like a tautology to me.

By definition an exception is exceptional.

You can be a special snowflake. Jack was.

I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.


Ok, you win the wordplay game, Blue One, but the textbook definition of exceptional wasn't the actual concept being discussed. And I don't discount that the possibility of my personal exceptionalism exists. But it has not occurred.

A bit of both. While my profession is not what I would truly call my passion, I do VERY much enjoy my job. My passion would be opening a brewery. Unfortunately, that is not my profession. But my profession is personally gratifying, and enjoyable.

I have a family member who was a Special Agent with the FBI for about ten years. He resigned to take a position with a state police department.
I have met employees of the NSA while the Utah Data Center was under construction.

That depends on a few things. Do you think there's a reasonable chance she won't consider it overbearing or creepy? Are either of you involved with someone else?

Well I'm trying not to be creepy after the last non response. I think were both single at the moment. We have previous( just fun) before she was in a long term relationship. Which was 22 years ago. She was very flirty before her break up. Is she just being a player?

Do you think that maybe she suspects you're the one being the player? Perhaps she doesn't just want a quick bang and bounce, but thinks that's all you're after. I obviously can't read her mind, but since you added the age factor to the equation I would say it's a possibility.

What about them, in particular. Buick makes fine cars, and a S&W .38 is a fine 2nd carry weapon.
Although I prefer a .357. A bit more punch, and you can also load .38 in it.

Thanks for the advice pfishy. It's true I'd like to jump her bones. But I'm a one woman man.

One a side note if I put a free flow air filter in my Volvo S60 t5 (which has a 300hp tune) will it make it to noisy under acceleration?

Generally they do increase the tone and volume of the engine under acceleration, but too noisy is subjective. Are you trying to keep it sounding like a sleeper?
Personally I like the throaty sound of a good K&N breather on an engine.

Yes sleeper is very important. I have been known to drive it with a trilby hat and suit, grey beard, driving gloves and a box of tissues (kleenex) stuck to the parcel shelf.

Should I tell the yummy mummy about this kink?
