You know what, I think I am going to use that as my signature for awhile.
Should get a few more laughs.
And hey, why did you foe me?

you said "for real, though" which causes me to judge your whole character and assume you work in a fast food restaurant and have no sort of college education because a college educated person wouldn't just say whatever they felt like saying at all. Everyone should think how I do. I'm not condescending, I'm just retarded

and I love your judgement of my character. I worked at whole foods for 3 years, in addition to having a mother who is a health nut who gives me health literature, exercise videos (the P90 workout is incredible), and nutritional supplements regularly. I take care of myself, I still have health problems, I'm not insured, and have a hard time paying for it while I'm in college.
While you're a bit of a condescending ass,
I must admit it is nothing short of remarkable that you've been able to take care of yourself. I am glad there are people like you in the world but that just doesn't apply to everyone.
