When do people find the time?

No Snacks, no sweets, no seconds. Except on Days that start with S. Too simple for you? Simple is why it works. Look here for questions, introductions, support, success stories.

When do people find the time?

Post by Over43 » Fri Feb 01, 2013 2:55 am

Since No S is a "habit" to be formed, and so much of what we do is habits we have formed, I had an observation today.

I have come to the conclusion that the WWW allows many people to be full of...manure.

Now I don't mean anyone here. Because Reinhardt hasn't set up an internet tool here that allows us to be full of...manure. But let me give an example.

Last night, after I logged on here and posted my unsuccess, or success, I went onto a different website that deals with the certain type of exercise I am doing at the moment. This website, among forums, blogs, and journals has a real time chat. I looked at the 35 or so people on the chat, didn't recognize anyone on it, and left.

Fast forward, this morning: I was at work, went to the above stated website, and noticed that basically, the same 30+ people seemed to still be on the chat.

I got busy doing things, left my office, went to help a group of students with an environmental science test, which took most of the morning, drove to NY Burrito, picked up lunch, and went back to my office. I had forgot to turn off my computer, nor had I exited from the WWW. If you are seeing the pattern you know what's coming. The same 30+ people (plus or minus a couple) were still chatting.

Tonight, it has been about 24 hours since I was on last night. The same 30+ people are chatting. Understand that the whole group is dominated by 5-6 "superstars" who have done everythin from climbing Everest to bringing down terrorist cells with Nerf footballs.

My question to them would be, if they were to notice someone posted other than them, "How in the H3!! do you work, let alone get one of the workouts in, that you claim you do, when you spend every moment (I would like to say waking, but I'm not sure) chatting on this website?

That is my rant for the month of January.

:lol: that would never happen on this board because we would all at least take the time off to eat our three plates of food - LOL!

Interesting. If they're there 24 hours, I wonder whether they are chatbots to encourage real people to spend time there?
