    My bf had a bunk bed. his mattress was on the floor because his brother broke it. The rest of his room was clothes and comics and a tv he never used all piled on the floor with three empty dressers and a two inch layer of dust throughout.

    Trust me, girls wanna get laid too. Even to 26 year old boys. >.<

    My boyfriend likes to play with cars, but not the ones that look like real cars, but the movie cars. And his room is a disaster and I can't even walk in it.


     I can understand the food spatters, although at my age it becomes beer splatters. Ive always had legos and k-nex and none of my friends have ever laughed at me about it cause of the cool factor of what we all build. I dont know a soul around here who dosent have some sort of gaming console. Guys and gals alike, we all play video games and beer pong on the weekend. It must be a high-schooler thing, cause around that age it seems to be a "try to impress" age. once your out of college, noone cares anymore, hell me and my wife will probably end up playing more video games than our kids. Wait till we introduce the NES to them. They're gana be like WTF is this dad!?!

    Oh and to add to the instructable, vinegar and baking soda make a VERY good universal cleaner.

    Haha, you sir, deserve a medal for that. I hate when 13 year olds try to act mature, but can't bring themselves to using proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation.


    Reply 9 years ago on Introduction

    Hey, not all thirteen year olds are like that, not at all. In fact, some are exactly the opposite. Plus, that rayman5 guy doesn't really use very good grammar, just like _Ko0LaiD_ said. But, you are right in the case of some thirteen year olds, who have the grammar of a nine year old.
