Clueless Likes

There are members here who write on topics that make me feel like an alien from another planet, i.e. clueless . Those two topics are: Gaming and Sports.

Sports, I can sometimes relate to because I sort of recognize some of the names of the people or the teams. But Gaming puts me in a total clueless haze.

Nevertheless, if the title catches my eye , I pop over to the post and give it a Thumbs Up, even though most of the time I can't leave an intelligent remark or comment.

Post:

PoisonGirl_666 Vs. Tekkitu the Witch Doctor

Uuuuuhh … it has the number “666” in it.

Post:

Washington Redskins QB Robert Giffin III would "love" to play football for the Dallas Cowboys

Uuuhhh … when I moved to the Washington, D.C. area back in the 80s, there was a brew ha-ha going on about use of the name “Redskins”. Also, I once met a former player for the Dallas Cowboys at a worship service in El Paso, Texas. Can't remember his name but you couldn't miss the guy, He was huge!

That's the beauty of reading topics that you don't know anything about. They teach you about topics you didn't know about before.

I am not a great sports fan and don't do any computer gaming, so I am more than a bit clueless on both!

Retrogaming I can understand. but if it doesn't have pixels I can see, I'm not interested. I will occasionally review a game app on the phone but only because I have app designer friends and online contacts who know I write.

That is what makes reading and writing very interesting for we are always learning.

All of us are going to feel like aliens regarding various categories. There are many posts and categories that I cannot relate to at all. But for PP to be truly successful, there needs to be posts about everything under the sun so there's always something for everyone.

I am not interested in sports at all but still try to read them. The gaming ones are often a total loss to me

Some of the gaming articles that I know nothing about are kind of interesting because I have never heard of the game (so I have learned something new).

Same here. Even if I want to comment on some certain topics, I do not ahve anything to say.

Retogaming? Now I see how far out of the loop I really am. :)

cmoneyspinner wrote on January 8, 2016, 3:32 PM

Indeed. But I seem to recall one of the writers was going to write a post for each category. I thought to myself: Good luck! I could never set that kind of a goal for myself.

cmoneyspinner wrote on January 8, 2016, 3:33 PM

You and I are in the same boat. :)

cmoneyspinner wrote on January 8, 2016, 3:34 PM

For sure. That's the main reason I pop over. Hoping the post might shine a light in those dark corners of my brain. :)

cmoneyspinner wrote on January 8, 2016, 3:38 PM

Yes. And I don't want to leave a comment like “Nice post.” (O.o) They do stuff like that in another social network and it drives me nuts. “Nice.” “Cool”. “Great.” I'm thinking – Good grief! If you don't know nothing to say, then don't say nothing! emoticon :smile:
Anyway … I shouldn't say that because after all the person was kind enough to leave a note to show that they visited. I should be more appreciative. :)

No, you're not really. Retrogaming refers to games available in the 80s for the Atari, the ZX Spectrum, the Commodore 64 and machines of similar vintage. Back when laptops were only a dream and Bill Gates hadn't dreamed up Microsoft and Windows yet. Was about the time that Jobs and Woz were coming up with the Apple I

Well, I am no gamer and I am not into sports at all. So, I would stay away from those posts. There are other posts to read and comment on. Although lately there hasn't been much to sink my teeth into here.

Years ago on a news report, they showed some runway model walking out with a three foot tall, lopsided hat. That blew out my fashion circuit (if I even had one) and since then fashion makes no sense to me. And I don't care about sports. So those two categories I usually skip over.

When I sign in I check the activity and if titles peak my interest I go over to see. Sometimes people don't make it so obvious what the post is about and also some people don't pay attention to choosing the category.

With fashion, my mother was a dressmaker and my father was a tailor. My mom used to tell me certain fashion “rules” and I noticed that a lot of the models wore outfits that violated those rules. From then on, I decided if I like the outfit I like it. Don't care if it's in style or not in style. Don't matter if it breaks the “rules”. (O.o)

With sports, growing up in segregated America, it was an unwritten “rule” though obeyed almost as “law”, that if you're an African-American you're supposed at least know who the “brothers” and “sisters” are in sports. So I find that I know names even if I don't have any interest in the game whatsoever. Life is funny like that. :)
