-What is the oldest thing you have in your house belongs in House forum
-What is the oldest clothing you have belongs in the fashion forum

It seems so, yet the responses would be pretty boring for people in their 20s. By posting those here, retirees or those son to retire have a nice long track record.

Basically, I think it's because people really like talking about themselves.

I said give the OP a break because he/she is a poster on this forum, just like every single one of you are, and she/he doesn't deserve to be treated badly just because you don't like his/her choice of posts.

I mentioned her/his age just to let you all know that she/he isn't doing a thesis.

What a bunch of grouches.

Well they're gone now. Thank goodness.

I hated filtering past 10 threads in the forum in order to read threads that were really meaningful...

I enjoy them very much.

I've always been curious as to how other people live, to compare for sure, but mainly just curious.

What time do they get up, what do they do all day, what are their fears and dreams, how do they get along with others, what are their family relations like, do they pray, do they think about death/sickness a lot or never??

I find it all extremely interesting.

So. Here's a thing.

I collect teddy bears. Some people collect stamps. Some people collect music, of one genre or another.

And some collect logistics/data.

So, seriously. Chill, everybody. If you don't want to answer it then simply don't. It's really that easy.
