    Every now and then I learn something (mostly pointless internet memes). Even more occasionally, I actually change my opinion on something.

    On a positive note, I now argue far less with my actual friends in real life, because I get my idiot-flaming off my chest on here. If someone says something idiotic down the pub I would have previously pointed out the holes in their feeble excuse for an argument, whereas now I just smile and indiscernably raise my right eyebrow.

    TSR sped up the process of losing my faith. It was on the way out anyway, but TSR certainly helped it along.

    Edit: Lol, how exactly is this post neg-worthy? It's not opinion, but simple fact.

    I've realized how sheltered I have been/am but also how much time I've got to...become not sheltered, if that's the right term. Some people on here are good at putting things in perspective, even if it is in a harsh way.

    I've also learnt of a few internet memes such as "come at me bro" which always raises a smile.

    It has taught me that if you disagree with someone's view or offer a differing opinion... Negged.
    So it has taught me that many students are very stubborn and not worth the time taken to speak to them because, as soon as you share your (differing) view, you will get Negged and receive a confrontational, possibly abusive reply.
    Of course there are many friendly people. But a lot as described above.

    Im sure i'll get Negged for this but im not too worried about my rating on the internet. So Neg away my friends

    It's taught me to pander for people's affection with cheap gags and politically correct statements, which when you consider that I'm applying for Politics at uni... it's pretty helpful!

      It has definitely given me more information on medical schools than any prospectuses, websites etc ever could, and helped me to make better choices as to where to apply this time round

      Plus it's an awesome boredom-buster, and people on here are generally nice

      It's made me realize how awesome I am.

      So I stay on here to help out the less awesome.

      In the hope to spread the awesomeness, and one day, they too, can be as awesome, if not more.

      I love you all.
      Don't hold your breath for that standing ovation.

      I just like being able to give advice - (not always good but try to be) and get advice back when I need it. As has been said previously, theres always something different to write about, and it has kept me sane the last couple of months!

        I love TSR because it has confirmed that I'm as brilliant as I think I am. My name is pronounced "God".

        I'm ****ing brilliant.
