What I have found to be the most interesting about the Guys Lounge is that they don't seem to beat themselves up the way women appear to. I haven't noticed a lot of feeling bad about themselves and their slip-ups, or feeling like failures. Maybe I can learn something in here...

It was my first stop too - thought I'd come in for a dose of testosterone-laden perspective, but it was much more fun reading than that.

Yes, I see what you mean, this is one of the more womanly threads, even when I post on this topic I find I scratch myself less emoticon

I wonder if this is the first place women stop when they come looking through the Lounge (it was mine). I was expecting all aports talk, vehicle maintenance, and short little single sentence responses... Refreshing to see how intelligent (and normal) the opposite sex can be. I was just getting to the point where I'm not a big fan of men, but you guys have helped me abandon that idea. Thanks!

Docta4u and Matalynn,

A topic you might want to look in on if you're interested in new words is "New Words and Definitions". It's in the Games Forum, and although there are only two of us there right now, I've learned a few new, cool words there.

Don't be a lumpen. Join us.

Thanks to VeganWendy for starting this topic. I've met some really awesome people here.

Docta4u,

Your mother taught you well. You might even be from my state of Missouri. As with many words, avatar has been stretched to cover situations where it was never imagined. With the invention of the computer, and especially computer gaming, if a person didn't want to appear as him/herself - or couldn't because the game didn't have the capacity, they chose a virtual being to represent them. The two definitions that you did not find (and if was printed before 1995 or abouts, the new stuff wouldn't be in it), are:

1. An online image of somebody in virtual reality: a movable three-dimensional image used to represent somebody in cyberspace.

2. A computer games computer game persona: in computer games, a character or persona of a player with a graphical representation.

Any of the representations of SP people that are not photos of themselves are technically "avatars", but specifically those representations that are single characters - like, Superman, are what I meant as an avatar.

"Look it up" was a favorite saying of my mom and dad, too. Then they subscribed to Readers Digest and I really enjoyed playing the Wordpower game. I guess I could be described as a "word-aholic", I just have this thing about ... words.

I'll try to find an appropriate avatar and post it. I tried to upload a jpeg image today and it wouldn't load, so I may have to go to the SP specialists to figure out how to do it.

Bob emoticon This emoticon could be considered an avatar.

Okay........I know I shouldn't be confessing to this, but I am going to go out on a limb. I find myself actually looking forward to Bob's posts and what is going to come out of his fingers next. By the way Bob, not that I am in anyway qualified to pass moral judgement of what is right or wrong, but I would strongly suspect that the only way you can be accused of an inappropriate post is if it is a fiddling fingersation. If you are just having a fingersation, I think it is doubtful that you will be paid a visit from the Spark Patrol. So rest easy and stop looking over your shoulder.

Now to the point of my post. I have always considered myself to have a fairly descent command of the human language, but I found myself scratching my head when I saw the reference to avatar. It has been quite some time since I have had to look a word up in the dictionary. When I was younger my mother would prod me to "look it up" rather than to let me off easy and tell me the meaning of a word that stumped me. She would smile as I returned with the definition, telling me that now I will never forget it, cause the meaning wasn't something I was given, but had to work for. Now that I am older and a parent myself, I realize why she did it. She didn't know the meaning of the word either.

Anyway, I am hear to confess, still again (wow....... two confessions in one fingersation....and I am not even Catholic) that I went to the dictionary and looked up the meaning of avatar. Don't know where my mom is right now, but I do know one thing.........wherever she is Bob, I have you to thank for making her smile........and for making me laugh.

For the rest of the group.......let me save you the trip.......I'm not as stingy with information like my mother was.

Main Entry: av·a·tar
Function: noun
Pronunciation: 'a-v&-"tär
Etymology: Sanskrit avatAra descent, from avatarati he descends, from ava- away + tarati he crosses over -- more at UKASE , THROUGH
1 : the incarnation of a Hindu deity (as Vishnu)
2 a : an incarnation in human form b : an embodiment (as of a concept or philosophy) often in a person
3 : a variant phase or version of a continuing basic entity

Pronunciation Key

Need More Information: write to Bob

Bob, I suspect that even with the definition, there are a few, myself included that are still scratching their heads.

Don't know about the others who post here, but I'm so ugly a picture would have to be an avatar.

Actually my spouse - wife, thinks I'm kinda cute and she's held on for almost 35 years now.

Oh yeah, I post other places, too, 'cause I want to share my spirit and wit around. I wouldn't want anyone to think I was purposely denying them the opportunity to have one of the strangest conversations (with fingers on the keyboard, would it be fingersations, naw, that sounds like it might qualify for one of those "inappropriate post" warnings.)

I hope no one gets offended that my wit is sometimes dry and ascerbic, but at least it's all the way full. I wouldn't want to get the reputation of looking at a half empty (or full) glass, 'cause then I'd be a half wit.

Welcome Matalynn,

I'm beginning to think that this is a girl catcher. We welcome everyone here, with the caveat to girls that this IS a guy spot and what you might find reflects some hardwired guy stuff and some software re-training (read spouse/signiificant other).

From time to time, you may see some scrathing and spitting and "Guy Laws" or "Beer Rules".

If you can put up with that, we applaud you, and welcome the chance for interspecies communications (you are from Venus, right?) where we may all benefit and get a different perspective on what makes each other tick.

Again welcome. We hope this is a satisfactory learning experience!

Emmy,

At that age, most guys have been brainwahed into the societal standard of female beauty. If a good woman is too tall, too short, too heavy, skin color's wrong, eyes aren't shaped the same, etc., it's ALMOST impossible to break the brainwashing, and with two or more guys, its almost a cult thing.

Hopefully, your friend will meet someone who sees beyond the obvious to the real person. Usually, it's a guy who is too tall, or too short, or the wrong color, yada, yada, yada. Often just nerdy (they tend to think more).

You are obviously not the average 21-22 year old. You are responsible (don't drink, designated driver? Wow!), personable (just see this Topic), and..., and..., and... I'm blown away away (did I mention caring and intelligent?) Truly an inspiring person.

I would imagine you may have your professors eating out of your hand. They are not used to a real adult in most of their classes.

With your attitude and outlook, you are sure to have fun - and be an impressive campus personality.

The way we look at a person is often influenced by the way that we were raised and the messages we got as kids. In a society such as ours looks do often factor into alot of decisions for alot of people. Fact: Thinner, prettier people get higher paying jobs and opportunities. The ones without those attributes have to work harder to be noticed. Madison Avenue and Hollywood reinforce it.

Doubt my words then go chat with Oprah, when she was an overweight, black, female. She had plenty of doors slammed in her face. But what made her different, is she allowed herself to be vulnerable.....she shared the pain....the struggle.....and won praise and kudos for her courage,tenacity and perserverance not to mention talent.

It all starts in the household at a young age. I believe that. My grandmother once said to me the following: A full head of hair will one day turn grey and receede. Muscle will one day turn to fat. Smooth skin will one day wrinkle. But the only thing that endures is personality.

My daughter is beautiful and a "little diva in training" (she is pictured on my sparkpage) at age 5 with a strong sense of self and positive mental attitude. The one thing I try to focus on is her internal beauty not her external. Her sense of humor, her fearlessness, her intelligence. Yeah she knows she is pretty, but I don't want that to be the card she plays in life. I don't want her to judge others on their looks. There are plenty of people in life who are like Ferrari's without an engine. They are great to look at, but there is nothing under the hood. I can't change the world, but I can change the way my kids will look at it. I want them to be strong independent thinkers that won't just be suckered in by the IN crowd. Who can make good choices for themselves and not do things just because its the cool thing to do... and it starts with little tiny messages now!

I am now stepping down from my soapbox....sorry for the rant.

Emmy,

I'm sad to say that most young guys are too interested in looks and appearance. Especially if it's in a social setting such as a party, club, or bar. If the guy is given the chance to get to know the girl for who she is he'll often get beyond the weight issue and be happy. Unfortunately the only way this usually happens is if the two people have time to talk "alone". In other words, no other guys around. Most young guys are too macho and don't want to risk anything in front of their friends.

It's sad....so many people could meet other fantastic people if they could get over their issues. Whether it's weight, hair color, skins color, etc...too many of us excuses to not date "certain" people.

There are guys who don't care though. She'll eventually find someone who appreciates her for how beautiful she really is.

Thanks for the advice. Don't worry I am 22 and I already know about the drinking thing. I have only "really" drank 4 or 5 times since I turned 21. I already don't eat fast food. However, I am a social eater, so that might be my downfall. I will eat what my friends are eating if at a party on the weekend. But I always make myself the sober driver so I won't drink. I am glad to not know everything and I can't wait to learn more about life and educate myself. Thanks for all the great advice and I can't wait to throw myself into the "real world". By the way, do guys really care if a girl is heavy? Because I have a friend who is totally gorgeous, she is a little heavy, but she is an awesome person. If anyone should have a boyfriend it should be her. Are guys our age (21-23) just too immature to see real beauty where it counts?

EmmyGrace,

Welcome to the Guy's Lounge. I think it is very commendable that you are interested in what guys have to say. The first step to understanding is knowledge. You must be a very special person, because most young people just starting college are sure they know everything. I am truly honored to meet you in our virtual community.

I lived in Southern California and went to school at Long Beach State, back when the Beach Boys were young. If memory serves, and sometimes it doesn;t, Sonoma State is actually in Nothern California, isn't it? Up by Mendocino?

I am glad you are on SparkPeople amd already on a winning program, because it will probably protect you from that vicious disease, The Freshman Forty (OK, so usually it's 20).

What happens is at college you usually start hanging out with people who ... party ... nore than a little.
While at the party, a social event called "eating" occurs. Almost no one is immune. The results are that you consume way over the calorie level designed to keep your body functioning. Some people even indulge in a practice called "drinking", but it's not water and has hundreds of calories you can't even see. Most people in college drop their regular exercise regimen, in order to go to more of these "parties".

Remember, in order to lose a pound a week you must cut your intake and increase your burn to 500 calories per day. At just one of these "parties", you can consume more than 3500 calories. First, it's just a pound, and you say, "Not a problem, I can get it under control." But them, you don't weigh in for a couple of weeks and it's suddenly five pounds! And so on, and so on. It's easy to rationalize, after all, you're learning a great deal about life and you're having fun. But then the end of the semester comes and you find that the only clothes that fit are sweats, and you've gone from a small to feeling soooo good in a medium.

As a responsible member of the community, I want you to have fun and learn about life and learn in general.

Just be really careful of those people who offer you food or drink and say, "Oh, try some. It can't hurt you!" Remember, Nachos Supreme have a gazillion calories. Eating just one serving will have you on a 1200 calorie a day diet for three years, or running bleacher steps for four hours per day - and that's no fun!

You sound like a great person, and I'm only half serious. Your Freshman and Sophmore years are two of the most dangerous when it comes to weight gain. Forewarned is fore armed!

Enjoy your summer and spend as much time close to the Pacific as you can. It's the greatest, most awesome Ocean in the world. Living in the midwest now, I often dream of the days when the surf was running just right and the water was just warm enough. Trying to catch a wave poolside just doesn't compare.

Emmy,

Thanks for the info.

I am glad you popped in and enlighteded us, but now I'm sort of paranoid. Does your entry here mean that girls sometimes just drop in and SPY on the guys?

I mean, you are certainly welcome and encouraged to contribute, but.... No, I'm not paranoid, but that doesn't mean someone isn't out to get me!

Vegans can't eat anything that is made from animals or comes out of animals that includes dairy, eggs, etc. A vegetarian just doesn't eat meat but they do eat fish sometimes.

You can pretty much count on it, but maybe not on this string.

My wife once asked me, "Why are most husbands so quiet?"

I replied, "Well, you'd be quiet,too, if everytime you opened your mouth, you had your head bit off!"

I think it was three weeks before she realized I had snuck back into the house.

Bob...lol...I am not currently associated with any Vegans...but when I run into one I'll pass on your respects. =) lol....I'm definitely the furthest thing from paranoid about my own health, I enjoy life completely. But since I "represent" SparkPeople I do have to keep an eye on what things are said around the boards. I am rather sensitive when it comes to comments about someone's lifestyle, religion, politics, etc. I have seen arguments and name calling come from comments that you and I would most definitely laugh at or shrug away.

You would be amazed at how some people react to certain comments and words. Many of us have had to deal with insensitive remarks are entire life. I'm lucky enough to have a great self image and don't worry about what others think. Unfortunately many overweight people are already sensitive about their self image and don't need anything else to worry about.

I guess ultimately it comes down to one of my least favorite topics....political correctness. While I don't care for the whole idea of being politically correct, I understand the need for it and respect peoples' positions in life. I'm very easy going and just "go with the flow" through life. I want to see everyone enjoy life as much as I do. As I've gotten older I've learned to look at things from every possible point view and take others' feelings into consideration.

Having spent 2+ years around SP I've witnessed more than you can imagine around these boards. More often than not, issues arose because of the lack of emotion associated with this sort of communication. It can be very difficult to understand when someone is joking or being serious. And even when they are joking it may not be funny to someone else reading the post. That's why SP employees have th ability to edit or delete posts they feel are inappropriate. Topics that involve lifestyle choices such as religion, politics, abortion, race, etc...are very touchy and try to be avoided around here.

Hopefully you can appreicate where I come from in such an instance. Since I do volunteer work for SP it's not necessarily my choice to find something funny or not, as much as it's my "duty" to make sure that everyone feels comfortable around the message boards. While I may chuckle as I read something I have to use my discretion if there is the slightest chance someone may find something offensive.

Now then, as far as my handle...lol...yes, I'm a PGA Professional in the "real world". =) It's a fun job that allows me a lot of freedoms in my spare time.

Thanks for being such an active member around here, I DO enjoy reading your posts and look forward to seeing more of them

Matt,

Jeez, sensitive I can understand and being serious about your way of life is what we're all striving for. Looking at your before and after pictures, I would guess you have become very serious about your change in lifestyle, as have I. But being as sensitive as it appears goes beyond healthy, edging into paranoa.

From your handle, I would assume you are one of those talented people who can make those skinny sticks hit that small ball. Golf is a sport that has interested me for years - enough to practice and shoot two to four rounds a year, but until I made the game about fun and relaxation, it was totally frustrating.

Next week I go back to my cardiologist (had heart surgery four weeks ago) and find out when I can get back on the practice tees and then the links. I imagine with my wishbone split, I may have to take a different approach at swinging the club. My daughter-in-law's sister is an LPGA Pro who will be moving to a Florida course in the near future to be the Ladies Head Pro. Evidently, the course has enough members to require the services of a number of professionals just to handle the classes.

I've figured that if I average a hundred yards on every swing and I two putt every hole, I'll not break a hundred, but as I get my strength back, I'll be able to get back under.

Have a great weekend and do me a favor. If you know a vegan, please tell them that an old guy on SP says he respects their choice of diet but might joke about it, as he jokes about his own deficiency's.

Respectfully

Bob,

While I agree that the posts were positive or humorous, I live in an area that has MANY vegans and vegetarians. They all take their lifestyle VERY seriously and don't find much humor in people making jokes of it. I'm on your side and found the posts rather humorous, that's why I never intervened or made comments. But, from living in around such people I know that many would have taken offense to having their lifestyle made into a joke.

Hopefully she just forgot about it or didn't see it.

If VeganWendy was offended by the posts that followed her's, I'd have to ask what caused the offense?

Unless I missed something major, nearly all of the posts were positive or humerous, or both.

Aunt Bee,

Saying "hi" to the guys is not grounds for getting in trouble. Neither is spitting on the floor nor scratching. Just remember we're guys and have been told all our lives we know nothing about women, now we believe it.

I don't think I've ever encountered a mean answer on any board.

I'm one of the "old" guys (my age, not how long I've been on SP), and thank you for thinking of us. It gives us a little hope to run across a lady who is comfortable around her boy cousins, and by extension, the rest of us boys.

I've been waiting for a tsunami, a giant earthquake, a hurricane or F-5 tornadoe to strike, but it's been more than a month and nothing catastrophic has occured, so I guess you have your answer.

Actually, I'm surprised that you haven't had more replies to the fact that you're vegan. I've been a fan of science fiction for a long time, but have never had the opportunity to meet someone from another planetary system before. What's it like? Do you have similar weather and multiple continents, or is Vega one of those "Garden of Eden" places? Also, how did you get here? Do you use some sort of spaceship or flying saucer - or do you have some sort of teleportation?

Anyway I'd be interested to hear more from you.

Doohh! In the words of the great Homer Simpson, Maybe, just once, someone will call me "sir" without adding, "you're making a scene."

Wendy...lol...women can post in here anytime they wish. The title of "Guy's Lounge" is just kind of a warning to women that there is "man talk" going on around here and not to be offended by anything they may read. Not too mention there aren't many men around the message boards. This way men have an easier time finding one another.

You're more than welcome to participate in any conversation here though. And I LOVE the Simpsons!

(Simpsons fans will get it...)
