Hey my names Dan, I'm 18 and live in Aus.
Basically I've just left school and am currently doing laboring just as a job for now, as it pays quite well and makes my friends jealous
i like going out on the town on the weekends with mates or just cruisn around looking for parties and getting pissed pretty much.
I joined this forum as I found it interesting; though sometimes I find it hard to comprehend / retain interest in some topics due to the fact that I often visit this site after work and I am quite tired whilst doing so.
Perhaps another reason might be that I am only 18 - with limited experience of the world, and the exit results from school would indicate that I'm quite the opposite of intelligent, far, far down the scale.
What I mean is that you'd only have to read this forum for 10 minutes to discover that pretty much everyone here is pretty dam intelligent; and seems to have great insight and depth of understanding of philosophical issues / other topics.
It's not that I feel daunted by this, but I guess I am little bit reluctant to share my philosophies or opinions because mine would not be as valuable as those who are smarter than I.
In that respect I guess I have a slight "fear" if you will, of being scoffed at, but then again, it's the internet, so who gives a ****.
you might see some of my posts in the near future
cheers for reading
