Default Holy crap how 10 years pass and ATOT still cracks me up

So I'm backing lurking in ATOT for the first time in several years... Let's do a snap shot of what my life was like 10 years ago.

I was just finishing up my first semester in College and I was 19 years old working at Target part-time.

Now 10 years later, I'm 29. Married, and Father of two children. I'm a Senior Network Engineer at a Major ISP.

So a part of me expected that when I came back on ATOT, that a lot of the shit going on here would be immature and stupid. But guess what, this shit is funnier than ever! Looks like I'm back baby!

That is all.
