I think defending victims of child rape is tumblr SJW PC extremism. Kids lie about being raped all the time, I know because I work with them.

I have friends who aren't goons that talk about the forums in real life and when I'm like having a casual conversation with someone and they're nearby they'll interject and start talking about some bit of forums history and turn it in to this big thing and talk it up and then be like "Yeah it's from some website 2 Track EP posts on called Something Awful" and always try to involve me and I'm just like smh... draw my shades this joint is dead to me now, going somewhere else

it always amazes me when someone says 'oh my roommate who is also a goon' or in some way have confirmed they have brought up their sa forum usage IRL. if i noticed my friend on sa i would pretend that poo poo never happened and if they didnt do the same for me then they are probably into anime and video games and poo poo so good riddens

I had a roommate over the summer who had a Something Awful bumper sticker on his car but I never dared to ask him if he was a fellow goon. Felt too weird.

(the S is for skeleton)

I knew some goons in college. One of them I discovered because a friend of mine jokingly said "do you have stairs in your house?" to the other, and this big weird guy farther down the dining hall table overheard, and yelled "YES. I AM PROTECTED." and it was super awkward. We never spoke of it again.

lol what is the big deal if you see somebody you know on the forum or with a bumper sticker on say 'oh do you post on their forum at all?' its not healthy to be so ashamed of yourselves.

Saw an SA grenade sticker on a car that parked near my school. (My school is located near a reasonably large university, and there are loads of apartments in the area that cater to students.) I decided to leave a note on the car the next day. The goon in question messaged me and we IMed a bit for the remainder of the school year. Then he graduated and stopped SAing. This was 8 or 9 years ago.

I knew a guy when I was in the army that posted on 4chan, I saw him do it on his phone. He was weird and I told him 4chan is gay. I told him I was a goon and we never really spoke after that. He also ended up getting busted for cp.

not as a "goon," no, but I've mentioned SA in contexts:
internet history
4chan
reddit

because I know people who talk about those things in real life. Cool people, I guess,
PhD students and stuff, and I was drunk

Now my question:
it snowed some tonight, maybe a half inch, and I'm thinking about walking down to the bar to meet some friends
it's the warmest it's been all week
do I go dumpster diving instead?

You wanna fuck with this shit I fuckin dare you. You fuck wit the hedge you get the spines


The city name sports shirt and emoticon lapel pins are in my regular wardrobe rotation, but mostly for casual fridays at work. I have told a bunch of people about SA Mart, the 'Something Awful Marketplace', where I have found some great items (chai tea anyone??) at super amazing prices. And I following every conversation with a new acquaintance with a 'uh, by the way -- do you have stairs in your house?'. Nope never met a goon yet this way, but hey it could happen
