    I love reading the stupid

    and inane questions and comments people write. It amazes me that some of these people can actually get out of bed in the morning and dress themselves. My God, we are a bunch of self-centered, whiny, perverted poor excuses of human beings, aren't we?

    It says "share experiences"

    but the only thing people want to share with me are explicit pictures and dirty thoughts, am I the only one?

    I was feeling lonely.

    I am a photographer. I would like to find a person, who shares real love about photography too. I really love all kinds of art. Everything that makes one create something on their own. Here is a self-portrait.

    To Burn Time And Have Fun Privately

    I joined EP because it is fun to socialize anonymously and share thoughts that some times can't be shared in public. Plus I have a very serious job so this allows me to just have fun and understand what other people are thinking.

    In the film, "Annie Hall", there's a joke about a man who takes his wife to a psychiatrist because she thinks she's a hen. When the psychiatrist asks why they hadn't consulted earlier, the husband says, "Well, we would have... but we needed the eggs". I guess this is a little bit...

    I actually found this site by accident,

    but when I did I immediately made an account. I often feel like I'm the only one who thinks the way I do and it bothers me. But here you can say whatever you like and not feel judged. Plus it's nice when someone says "me too" when you thought you were crazy.
