So your argument is that if she is ALSO a child they have a chance? Possibly. But somehow I doubt she's "into" trading her boyfriend moving 1000 miles away for some online video games unless she's just not that into him. Regardless of what she says, this will not be a substitute for the real thing.

This isn't going to work. You're living in a fantasy world. Long distance relationships are difficult (and not even really that fun). If you want it to succeed in the long term, you've got to make an effort. Talking about what games you're going to play together online is what children do and your relationship is therefore doomed.

See, the mere fact that you're moving 1000 miles away from her speaks VOLUMES to her (and to me) about what you really think of her. Video games? What the fuck are you thinking?

If you are serious about maintaining this relationship, don't spend your time playing video games with her. Spend that time at a second job and use the money to visit her and (this is also important) fly her out to see you. This will not only show her you are *serious* about your relationship, but that you're a good provider.

She's looking for a committed man. What you're showing her right now is an uncommitted child. I'm not saying that's what you ARE, I'm saying that's what you are SAYING you are. If that's not what you are, start saying something else. Actions > Words.

I think you greatly underestimate how difficult it is to wage war on your own populace. Imagine Iraq, but with everyone armed, your own troops defecting, and every person you kill potentially related in some way to people who are on your side. Oh, and any infrastructure you destroy is your own.

Isn't it obvious?!

He has evidence:

1. The moon landing was faked.
2. The U.S. is complicit in the alien abduction of its citizens.
3. The U.S. is reverse engineering alien technology at area 51.
4. Bigfoot is real and a consultant for the DEA.
5. JFK was killed by Jimmy Hoffa and Elvis.
6. The U.S. is run by lizard people of which George W. Bush is one. (Also Morena Baccarin.)
7. Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Holly, and other supposedly dead musicians are alive, well, and immortal prisoners in an underwater city in the Atlantic for the rich and powerful.
8. (The truth about eight is too awful to print.)
9. Tater Tots are PEOPLE.

Air is water with holes in it.
