So what are you really like behind that avatar?


I'm kinda the same. Really dry sense of humor, nice if I know you, stand off-ish if I don't. Opinionated, but not as vocal about it as my online persona lets me be.

Pretty quiet, usually keep to myself. Generally do my own thing, but aslo pretty much spineless when it comes to my wife, so most of my time is controlled by her. I'm easily annoyed, not very patient of other people. Often though of as conceited or arrogant, but in reality, I just don't care about people, so their opinions mean little to me, and are rarely worth my time.

I'm pretty similar. Dry sense of humor, sarcastic, very opinionated, fairly well spoken...

Not sure if that's a good or bad thing :think:

on RM, i generally sit back and read most of the threads, not posting in many, whereas in real life i am talkative, and love to meet new people. i get along with EVERYONE i mean everyone i meet. i may not like them all, but i get along with them. i AM a ladies man.

I'm sarcastic as hell, usually pretty quiet, and have mild adhd. In a nutshell, I'm a huge dork. I typically border between indecisive and indifferent in my thought process; I find the Political Forum fascinating for this reason. Perhaps I'd be better described as being laidback, but it really doesn't make a difference.

I'm much more reserved and less sarcastic online... things that I would normally say get edited once I read what I wrote.

Meh...I'm pretty easy going and sarcastic most of the time. I like to laugh...I don't really get bothered by anything other than stupid people, drivers, bikers, etc....If you're gonna be a dumbass, do it someplace else...Other than that...I'm big.....

I'm pretty laid back most of the time, except when I drive. I'm kinda standoffish at first til I get to know ya, and then I'll open up if I like ya, if I don't, I won't say much else to you. And like my avatar, I'm known for liking to go out and party a lot, and wave my naughty finger in the air and say "F the man!"

My wife says I'm "Painfully Honest", with a terrific but dry sense of humor. I give idiots, managers, republicans, and evangilistics (funny how those are one in the same ) a hard time, by forcing them to think. It's painful to watch sometimes.

I'm pretty laid back to most people I think... in general I tend to be sarcastic, cynical, VERY impatient, and sometimes selfish. I tend to avoid confrontational situations quite frequently but yet am fairly social among people I know. Probably not my best trait, but oftentimes I'm really interested when people get angry or upset or something like that because I find it intriguing to see their reactions and how they deal with it. I somewhat try at school, but somewhat not. :p

People meet me on the trail and call me Skookum or Skookes or whatever. i don't mind. Funny though what peoples perceptions can be.
i find that internet persona is just an accentuated version of a regular personality. So i guess i am whatever i am percieved to be. So as much as it will be interpreted by you.
Buy me a taco i'd probably take a bullit for you. Steal my taco i'll kill you in the face.

im a typical smart-ass teenager. ive been told by my friends that im brutally honest. i tend to make fun of alot of people (only ones who deserve it). im loud and have lots of energy in most cases. i like to do anything having to do with bikeys... exsept spending money (i picked the right sport huh?). and umm, riding with pros makes me feel sad.
