I wrote a paper on you guys, the chat room anyway. Site isn't mentioned by name, just chatters. If you don't like your portrayal or anything I've written, please think long and hard, open a PM to me, and kindly fuck yourself. Criticism is alright. Don't bitch if I didn't put you in it, chances are I forgot or just couldn't think of much to say about you.

The internet is widely used for communications and the exchange of information around the world. I use it to watch fat kids fall off things and talk to people Ive never met in person and exchange said videos with them. Theyre some of the best and weirdest people Ive met, and Ill describe a few of them here.
First up is the man whos always in the room on IRC, a man known only as FigNewton. Hes from Canada, and if I have my information right, hes an ocular albino. I could look up what that means, but that would ruin the mystery. We do know it renders him legally blind though. Hes in the chat room every day and every night. We have no idea what he does, but hes an incredibly nice person and was recently deemed sane enough to be in charge of the room whenever hes logged in, which is pretty much forever.
Next up is my best friend in the room and go-to man for strange music Ive never heard of, Cameron. He lives in Missouri, in a small town about 6 hours away so if I felt like it I could probably go bother him. Hes a year younger than me and is pretty cool, and he loves him some puns. I dont think he has a mean bone in his body, and he knows everything about indie bands and bands that dont get much airplay anymore. His hair is also kind of awesome, and hes probably my favorite person in the room.
The token girl in the room is named Aika. Shes from Nebraska, and was a TA at some college. Shes older than most in the room, at 25, and enjoys flirting with the more awkward members of the chat to mess with them, especially the chat room chew toy, a 17 year old known as hacker. She likes anime and J-pop, and finding pictures of sexy Asian men, much to the chagrin of most chatters. She usually bothers the next person Ill talk about.
A man whose name I can only say is CB, hes from Colorado, and he just started college. He started a few much loved topics on the forum, not many of which can be mentioned by name as theyre not work safe, which is the same reason his full name goes unmentioned. Has a strange friendship with Aika, in which both of them flirt strangely with each other. Hes also into swing dancing, which is pretty hard to do, but apparently theres nothing else to do where he lives.
To expound on the person mentioned in Aikas paragraph, hacker is a teenage boy from Utah. Hes Mormon, a swimmer, and is apparently good at fixing computers, although this cannot be confirmed by any forumers I know of as he usually gets stopped and told to let someone who fixes them for a living help. Hes awkward, shy, and, in his early days of the forum/chat, he was a bit of a troll, which has led to his position of site chew toy, as stated above. He has a custom title on the forum of Banned as a joke for a few moderators who want him gone, but cannot get rid of him. He is the occasional enemy of the next two, who are in charge of the chat room.
The people in charge of this band of misfits and weirdoes that I associate with are Fernin and UsaSatsui, the Operators of the chat. Fernin, or Fer, is a laid back kind of guy, unless you happen to be a few certain members of the room/forum or youre messing up the D&D game he runs. He has a webcomic that updates pretty much when he gets around to it, although he attempts to stay on schedule, so it could be worse. UsaSatsui, or just Satsui, is a bit of a harsher Operator, preferring to get rid of annoyances or yell at them when they appear instead of toying with them. He runs the Forum Battles and whatever else he feels like, and is seen in the chat with the name of [anything]Bunny, due to his love of and possibly being a rabbit. Were not very sure.
To finish, those are the people I spend hours in front of a monitor talking to, and I never feel like Ive wasted time when I look at the clock and realize I spent 5 hours doing nothing but chatting. I wouldnt leave it for anything.

No grade, paper wasn't accepted due to lack of rough draft.

Ugh...I never wrote rough drafts. I thought they were a waste of time and paper. Nice paper though. I would've given you an A.

I had a friend convince the teacher he never needed to do a rough draft for his essays in the class.
