View Full Version : Oh why don't you just GROW UP?!

Do you still do somethings that are totally immature and still really enjoy them?

Post one thing that you do per response to this thread which might completely embarass you if your colleagues at work or school knew about it, or God forbid, it was featured on the nightly news!


I'll start.

I make loud flaglating (farting) sounds by pressing my hands down hard on my face and blowing as strongly as I can. They're really, REALLY loud and I want to see people hear them and react - looking around to see who farted!

I get a big kick out of that. I learned how to do it in the 3rd grade, as it was taught to me by Mike Arzemanian, 3rd Grade Fart Master. He will forever be famous for teaching me how to do this. And I have practiced the fine art of farting ever since.

I like doing this in crowded restaurants when I can get away with it unobserved. I also appreciate the opportunity to try this at somber occasions, though I can force myself to resist doing it at weddings and funerals.

But I actively seek out almost any other inappropriate moment to let one rip, and I go out on my balcony during the silent, wee hours of the morning, when a fart in the wind will really carry and probably many in my apartment complex will hear it and wonder.

I love to make it echo in the shower - though there it sounds more like a power drill.

Also, if you do it when alone in an elevator, it's funny when you arrive at your floor to watch anyone who might have heard the noise, to hesitate boarding the carriage you arrived on because they assume it just might stink!

OK, I learned to do this when I was 8 and I am now over 30 and have never gotten over my fixation with making farting noises. With me, it's just another thing you have to expect!

Nope. Can't top that. About the worst thing I do is read comics and collect star wars figures on my spare time.

I'm not embarassed by anything I do.

Immature? Wiffle ball is bomb, yo.

We used to play whiffle ball games from my friend's driveway all the way into high school.

We tried it a little during college, out in our commons area in the apartment complex.

we'd play soccer in the hallways in grad school between classes with a super colorful, super bouncy ball.

the beauty of getting older is not having to worry what peers think of your actions. you just blame it mid-life crisis and everyone just nods sagely and accepts it.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Our generation is going to be just as immature in our 60s as we are in our 30s, and there's absolutly nothing wrong with that.

hell, when I reach my 60's i really won't give a damn what anyone thinks about anything. I'll just say my actions are the direct result of amnesia. i've already decided to forget my age and stop thinking in terms of years passing. every day is just a day. and what i fill it with is up to me. i no longer recognise weekdays unless i have an appointment at the hospital but even then i just refer to the date not the day. i almost always ignore clocks. time is elastic anyway you can't cut it into chunks. a minute can feel like an hour or a year can feel like a month. makes no sense to define time.

as for immaturity, i say the immature ones are the uptight grey and beige types who live in some bubble where life is so ordered there's no room for manouevre. the mature people are the ones who retain their child like sense of fun and adventure. the thrill of living and discovering and inventing and experiencing all this world has to offer. the ones who end up living longer because their minds are active and firing on all cylinders.

those repressed types die earlier (scientifically proven) and have miserable senior years. people need to loosen up and not worry so much. and belongings, it's just stuff. you can't take it with you when you die so getting umbilically attached to stuff is pointless. stop confusing need with want and desire. enjoy stuff for what it is and when it's not in use get rid of it. declutter, move on. start over. reinvent. and i'm talking to myself here too not just pontificating. I need to do all this too. junk the junk.

anyway. I'm 40 and probably menopausal so i don't whether my opinion counts anyway. lol

Well I liked what you had to say Jargo! :thumbsup:

If you want, wait for a really inappropriate situation and then make the loudest farting sound you can (and try to not let people know where it came from) and then watch and laugh at everyone's reactions.

It's especially funny when some people don't want others to suspect it was them! Haha. You see them get all nervous. That's just classic!

For over 20 years I have not gotten bored of doing this.

I'm known as Lord Thundergusset. My farting prowess is legendary. I'd never pretend someone else did it I want the glory of the phenominal trumpet to myself. it's the volume that counts and the musical lyrical tones. Not the smell. smelly farts are just so - common.

While I agree with all that, I might add that fake farts can reach a much louder volume. That can be quite fun.

I'm not embarrassed by my immature "ways", but I've been told by many family members I need to grow up and like. I'm only 22, why even bother growing old and serious before my time?

I honestly dont care though, I see myself just as immature in 10 or 20 years as I am today. I think it might be the new cultural norm, at least in certain age groups.

I don't think its immaturity if you can recognize it. There's nothing wrong with acting younger than you are, though there is a fine line between "acting immature" and "honey, the neighbors asked me today if you were retarded". As you get older, you actually find that immaturity does have a payoff when you have kids. I don't mean "let's set this thing on fire!" immaturity, rather the immaturity that allows you to yourself find the simple pleasure that comes from playing with SW figures on the living room floor.

How did Mrs. Caps answer them? :confused:

Stupid stuck up neighbors...taking a tone with me because of that crummy "pants are not optional" rule when walking around the apartment complex.

One lady reported me too because she said "hey you look familiar", and I answered "you probably saw my pic in the post office." Why can't people have a sense of humor??

I'm pleased to announce that my polish neighbours that flash in the bathroom while erm 'abluting' have moved out. obviously owing the landlords 1.000 or thereabouts. but yeah they's gone. and taken their strange music warbling hairyness with them.

some woman with two kids whose house burned down is moving in. here's hoping they believe in window coverings.....

Keep an eye on that group...they might try to set fire to your neighborhood too.

ha. strange you should say that. another car got torched in the alleyway near us and we had the fire trucks here and burly firemen looking as bored as they were entitled to look. joyriders naturally. the fire starter not the firemen. though that would be funny.starting fires to kill the boredom. hmmm
luckily the house in question is a brick build and not attached to us. tere's a good paved yard between us. and if their house burned down the only worry they'd have is from me wanting to kill them for ash and embers damaging my garden.

actually I'm hoping the two kids are grown up kids rather than pre schoolers. this area is fast becoming a residential creche. the sound of small children screaming cuts right through me like a sonic boom. especially little girls of which there are hundreds in my street. you can't move for pink bikes and pink dolls buggies and pink everything. it clashes terribly with my house's mustard/gold coloured paintwork.

what was this thread about?

Get a custom made sign that says "sexual predator lives here" and place it on your lawn.

You shouldn't have any problems with kids...of course you may still hear them in the neighborhood, but it won't be near your place. :)

I like to walk through loud, crowded casinos, and pass silent gas behind old women, then sneak off to watch everyone around and how they react. :)

That's a cool hobby, Chux. Is there any speacial training you recommend for beginners to get started?
