Should I Give Up A.net For Lent?

Hey guys,

As the title states, should I? I know it's kind of getting late, so I was thinking about making my decision sooner than later. I'm sure most of you have pondered this thought. I'm clearly an addict, and I'm sure I can make better use of my time. After all, I'm sure my presence in the forums isn't all that appreciated.

Thanks for any input,
Ryan

Sounds like Catholic guilt to me. Recommendation: do what I did - give up Christianity for Lent.

Yes, stay! Big grin I swore to myself I'd stay away from a.net for at least a month... yet, I found myself checking non-av at least five times a week, and after around 2 weels. I just thought "ah, f*** this!" and rejoined...  crazy  Johan earns a bunch of money off people like us, I swear!  rotfl 

Don't worry about not being appreciated though- you are! People may not notice you due to the sheer amount of members on here, but at least one person WILL notice that you're gone and start missing you- and that's something, at least in my book!  Smile

I know exactly what you're saying. It's the same concept as sex. I could never go 40 days without that, or a.net..

I don't know what I was thinking..and, by giving up all fast food, I'm actually assisting my health..

Don't give up a.net. As much as we are friends with each other, I am going to have to say you should give up being a Cubs fan. Since both our teams are in the AL, lets make some kind of wager, loser can not post on a.net for 10 days, and winner can rub it in their faces for those 10 days. Man this should be fun Ryan.

If you are wondering what my team is, just take a look at my User ID, I think Ryan all ready knew that!

25 Boston92 : Damn, I was thinking of the White Sox (Their in the AL, Right?!!!!)
26 ORDRyan28 : Yeah, they are.
27 Post contains images AAce24 :
28 ORDRyan28 : AL Central..and the Cubs are the NL Central. I can see how you may have mixed those up.
29 Post contains images SandroZRH : Yeh i wondered where the hell you were
30 Post contains images AAce24 : Yeah, its easy to overlook the Cubs.
31 ORDRyan28 : Yeah! Totally right! Because that's actually what I was referring to, right...? Since when does "mixing up" mean "overlooking?"
32 Boston92 : When "Bryan" as you call him said mixed up, I think he was referring to they are both from Chicago, and I got confused on which was in which league.
33 AAce24 : Easy there, slick, I was referring to Boston92 thinking of the White Sox. Way to get your panties in a wad.
34 Post contains images ORDRyan28 : Okay..well, you surely rip on the Cubs enough, can I atleast know what team you support? It seems you've "overlooked" Boston92's same exact question.

37 Post contains images AAce24 : Likewise with 1908.
38 ORDRyan28 : Yes...I'm not doubting that. I love how everyone calls the Cubs chokers, well, 1-14 for the Braves...that's not choking...how?
39 AAce24 : Oh the Braves have mastered the art of choking. Anyone who denies that is blind. I think the main thing with the Cubbies, is they arent even ever in
40 ORDRyan28 : Thank you. I have said that all along, so they're really not "chokers" after all...
41 Boston92 : Go to itunes and look at the artist "Frickin A" and look for the song "Merry Merry Merry little Christmas". There are a few songs with that title, but
42 Post contains images AAce24 : Yep, I guess thats one of the few advantages of being a Cub fan?

46 Fr8Mech : Because Lent has little to do with habits. Lent is about sacrifice. By giving up something he enjoys, he is making sacrifice.
