It turns out that an obsession with emojis--and overusing them--has a surprising perk. New research shows that apparently, people who pepper their texts with the icons get more dates and have more sex. Who knew?


Now I cannot personally vouch for the veracity of this article (I do not use emojis) but if it is true it appears Legion 4 is getting the most action of anyone on TMP.

evil grin I will neither confirm nor deny that statement … But thanks for the compliment based on what appears to be Scientific research … evil grin thumbs up wink

Since I can see no attempt to adjust for age, I suspect this was posted to the correct board.

Next up, a scientific survey proving that people who attend college classes go on more dates than people in nursing homes!

Not so fast Robert:


von Schwartz25 Aug 2019 6:00 p.m. PST

Well Legion, is that true?

You know we're not gonna let that one rest. Gonna be like a terrier with a squirrel. (smile)

von Schwartz25 Aug 2019 6:02 p.m. PST

Hey Legion, what color loofa do you have tied to your car antennae?

Thresher01 Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2019 7:13 a.m. PST

That explains a lot.

Wolfhag26 Aug 2019 7:20 a.m. PST

I hope the VA covers your Viagra prescription.


Legion 426 Aug 2019 7:38 a.m. PST

Again, I will neither confirm nor deny the veracity of any of these statements directed towards me … evil grin

But I will say … I have a very "active" social life … wink evil grin I will admit I do prefer younger women. But to me that is around 45-50+ years old … laugh old fart

Wolfhag26 Aug 2019 1:47 p.m. PST

That's not fair! Come on Capt Studmuffins, tell us the secret of your success. Is it the handcuffs?

von Schwartz26 Aug 2019 5:59 p.m. PST

Yeah, but whats YOUR excuse? (smile)

Legion 427 Aug 2019 8:26 a.m. PST

Well when going thru the Inf Ofc Basic course at Ft. Benning, GA in '79. The Tac Ofr said to me directly, "I can make you an officer but never a gentleman !" evil grin

(I do not use emojis)

In the interest of science, you should try using imojis and report back to us.

von Schwartz27 Aug 2019 5:08 p.m. PST

OK, who's got some extra Viagra?!

Wolfhag27 Aug 2019 7:30 p.m. PST

OK, Walking Sailor. Based on this song:

I guess I should try the Tequila emoji?

My doc said I'm so far gone I'll need a Viagra IV drip to kick start my hydraulic system.

We're all pulling for ya Wolfhag!!!

Maybe that was an unfortunate analogy.

Wolfhag29 Aug 2019 8:03 p.m. PST

Thanks for the encouragement guys. However, this is a private hands on matter that I have to take care of myself.

I know you saw that coming.


Legion 430 Aug 2019 8:46 a.m. PST

LOL !!!! evil grin

von Schwartz30 Aug 2019 6:04 p.m. PST

There we go with those double entendre analogies again!

And legion is still scoring!!!!

von Schwartz,
Are you making hurricane party plans?


von Schwartz31 Aug 2019 7:03 p.m. PST

My idea of a hurricane party is a highball and good cigar.

Seriously though, looks like Dorian is turning. The spousal unit has had me running ragged for the last couple days, she's toeing the line between being disaster preparedness and Doomsday prepping. I did clear out the grandkids toys in the back yard and tested my generator.

von Schwartz01 Sep 2019 5:34 p.m. PST

Anyone else in Florida? Since I'm in Ocala I'm actually where a lot of the people go when they're evacuating. You can set-up a tent in my back yard. (smile)

Gallows humor

Wolfhag01 Sep 2019 8:35 p.m. PST

I grew up in Dade County in the 60's & 70's so I've been through my share of hurricanes.


von Schwartz02 Sep 2019 6:22 p.m. PST

Well, it's beginning to look more and more like the little boy who cried wolf. Except the little boy is the media and the wolf is weather in general, or hurricanes specifically. The Bahamas are taking a serious pounding, but here in Florida, at least north central Florida, this hurricane has, so far, kinda fizzled.
Don't get me wrong, I believe in being prepared but they were hyping this storm almost before it left Puerto Rico and have been beating the same drum for over a week. They hadn't clue where it was going then and they're not all that sure now. Call me a skeptic and grumpy old fart, but I lived through 58 Minnesota winters complete with life threatening blizzards and summer's severe thunder storms and tornados. I have never heard some much hype and hyperbole as recently. They could not get through a single weather report/update without using the words catastrophic or devastating once or twice.

Wolfhag02 Sep 2019 8:22 p.m. PST

Fake/freak news for sure. Just a bunch of talk to hold your attention until the next commercial. My sister is in Merrit Island and has not evacuated yet.


Legion 403 Sep 2019 7:00 a.m. PST

Looks like the storm is not going to be as bad as first thought along the US Coast. But we will have to wait and see. Hopefully it will do little damage there.

von Schwartz03 Sep 2019 4:23 p.m. PST

I feel for the folks in the Bahamas, they took a real beating, my Gawd 24 hours!!!

Wolfhag03 Sep 2019 6:17 p.m. PST

It looks like it got hit by a massive ToT barrage.


Legion 404 Sep 2019 7:42 a.m. PST

Yes they go hit pretty bad … sadly …

von Schwartz04 Sep 2019 5:26 p.m. PST

The little rain we had here in north central Florida was nothing. I had to go out near the east coast today, just south of Daytona, on business and nothing was happening, just some rain and really menacing looking clouds.
