Awkward First Day things

Post by LMP Dragon on Fri 30 Aug 2013 - 22:45

Well, today was awkward and somewhat understood. I made a Ask.fm account today, I got 16 questions asked today, most of them about or referring to Indianapolis. Some of the questions I got asked were (I also put my responses with the questions):

1. On a scale of 1 to Indianapolis Fun Cup, how often do you cause havoc in your local supermarket with a trolley?

Indianapolis Fun Cup Havoc Smile I'm joking, I am actually very mature in public areas, I think Indianapolis was a wake up call. Not all about winning, just having fun ( I regret the PM that I sent to jgroves1996.)

2. If you had the choice of winning races or winning championships how would you go about doing neither?

It is nice to win races, which lead to championships, I can't do it anyway, too lacked in skill to try anything like that!

3. (My personal Favourite) Do you drive lawnmowers in your spare time?

If you are referring to the Indianapolis corner cutting? No, I can't drive a lawnmower, but I have had the thought of painting an Evora as a lawnmower for the sake of that incident

Didn't a young girl kill herself because of bullying on Ask.fm not so long back?

I just ignore bullying, nothing of a problem to me, get it all the time, I'm used to it. Besides I'm not suicidal, just a bit slow in the head.

Not sure I'd call 1 or 3 anything like bullying, but 2 is verging. Personally don't see why you'd want any thing like that, I've been considering deleting my social network accounts never mind something with the ability to do stuff totally anon

Well they do always say at own risk, well for me it is how you deal with them. I do take cyber bullying seriously, I campaign for it at my school and it has worked so far. Also I prefer to socialise on a website because going out for me is very scary in its own right.

Fair enough but I'd say on a site like ask if there's an option to remove the anonymity I would go for it. The nastiest thing is that you don't know where its coming from.

Best answer for 2 is fun - if you don't have fun in winning a race/championship then it's not worth it. If you have fun then it doesn't matter where you finish.

The whole ask.fm at fault for bullying is a load of BS to me.
If you don't like the questions, you don't answer them and you don't go on the site.

It would be like blaming the shop who serve you booze for your alcohol addiction or Turn 10 for your divorce if you spent that much time on Forza.

Exactly Cowboy. This may seem quite controversial & insensitive, but I believe Cyber Bullying can be easily dealt with:

Log off. Then they can't actually do anything.

But why should I have to log off for them bullying? Most social networking sites have a block function.

And the girl who killed herself obviously had a suicidal mindset. It's not like the Ask.fm questions alone made her kill herself. Poor girl.

I agree, Just stating now, that none of these questions were me, apart from the ones about the World Wars, Beavers and Pianos Very Happy

But yes, best thing you can do on Ask.Fm is log off. Stupid thing.

Social networking site where people can ask you questions. You can also ask questions anonymously for those that are too scared to reveal themselves.

I personally find that the only thing that makes sites like these bad are the people who deliberately intend to do it, so, remove the haters, keep the likers and voila, best sites ever (Like this one really, although I feel I dull the tone a bit after Indy.)

I think the next console should feature on the next Durex/Trojan ads.

screw those inline-4's. Boxer engines FTW. (wonder if Subaru ever tried pairing two of the H-4's together, instant 4.0L/5.0L H-8 )
