Sometimes I wonder if I am too mean to the various oddities in behaviour I spot on IRC. People’s physical characteristics seem to vary, people get taller or shorter by the day, put on weight or lose weight faster then would normally seem healthy, sometimes even their gender spontaneously changes. Creepy.
(2:20:16 AM) oldman4u: hi
(2:24:12 AM) gothkat: Hello hello
(2:24:25 AM) oldman4u: how are you
(2:24:27 AM) oldman4u: asl plz

(2:25:56 AM) oldman4u: my names ray
(2:26:06 AM) gothkat: Wow. Aust…
(2:26:09 AM) gothkat: Australia?
(2:26:24 AM) oldman4u: yes
(2:26:46 AM) oldman4u: hope you dont mind my age
(2:27:20 AM) gothkat: I’m not really a science geek, but is that in a different time space continuum?
(2:27:42 AM) oldman4u: i guess
(2:28:13 AM) gothkat: I’m thinking it must be
(2:28:41 AM) gothkat: You’ve experienced two years, whereas I have only experienced 22 days. That’s so cool.
(2:30:11 AM) gothkat: See, we talked about three weeks ago, you seemed like a nice enough guy (which is odd for IRC, and is why I remember you), but back then you were 59, now you’re 61.
(2:32:47 AM) gothkat: Or is Australia just so far east that it’s drifting into the future faster then the rest of the planet?
Then he logged off. So sad.
Am I too harsh?
Am I at least funny? (I make me laugh, but that might be just me)
