I loved the movie in your profile pic, but I don't remember the name, what is it?

It's Princess Mononoke :) 

Wait, so is Kiba Inuzuka based on this character or viceversa?

Not exactly based on Princess Mononoke, but the Inuzuka clan design is actually a nod to it, lol

I'm weird in that I can talk your ear off and easily get lost in an intricate conversation with people I know and and comfortable with. But at the same time I struggle to start conversations myself with people I don't know or know as well, and I'm not much for small talk. I can go hours and even days only talking to a few people or I can be the chattiest one in the room at a gathering. It's oddly often one extreme or the other with me lol.

I was at a Father/Daughter function recently. Only guys there at the school. Not one guy, except a few Russians said hardly anything to each other. Myself included. I know absolutely no one at my kids school.

 

Today I was at Costco. They were out of Relish, Deli mustard and onions at their restaurant. A ...well an Asian or Oriental? older gentleman asked if it was all out. He looked like he wanted to say more but did not and I could not think of anything to say to him, so I sat down and ate my hotdog in silence without even looking at him. Felt bad, I think he was there wanting to have contact with others.

 

Do you just start talking to people for the hell of it or do you just ignore others IRL?

This surprises me, given your sense of humor and demeanor on this site I had you pegged as the "doesn't know a stranger" type that can chat it up and find common ground with most any type of person.

 

As for me I normally don't have problems talking to anyone and am fairly outgoing, that said there are times I just don't really feel like it either.

I‘m usually very sociable and rather talk too much, than to little. I’m very open to strangers and mostly upfront..which is why I’m sometimes a bit too much for people, as my fellow Germans are not known to like much small talk. I‘m a fire dragon, I guess, and it shows. That said, sometimes I just hate people and prefer to stay for myself, depending on my mood.

Not a big fan of that American style “how ya doing” smalltalk though. I prefer deeper topics than beer and football.

Hmm Errorist, I'm a fire dragon too ... are you a Sag or Scorp (my guess).  Not that there is really anything to all that mumbo-jumbo in my opinion but I used to work with a guy that was into it. We would always try to guess our server's sign when we went out between shows. 

I’m impressed...I’m a Sagittarius. I turned 36 on the 12.12.12. It’s a bit crazy.

I used to not believe the stuff as well, but I’m not just clearly a sag and feel mostly attracted to other fire signs (many of my friends are sags as well), but since I learned about the fact I’m a fire dragon and realised all their typical features and quirks apply to me as well, I strongly believe in it. It makes perfect sense. Now I just need to go and get that top manager job! ;o)



People have lost the ability to communicate. It is all the fault of bad parenting, lack of male role models, terrible school system, drugs/alcohol and social media are to blame for the lack of communication skills. Back in the good old days there was more discipline, young people were sent to war, no technology to waste time and better communication skills.
