Being a member of a forum, allows you to do things that you can't do in real life. You can say what you want here, whether or not it's true. You can say that you're a tough guy, but could be a wimp in real life. You can act like the funny guy, when you're not in real life.
My question is how are you different here, than in real life (if you are)?
There's not really much difference between the me here or in real life; only difference is that I have to express my thoughts differently because of the type of environment this forum is and I am more serious IRL but otherwise, there's not much difference.
