'ello QC people and those who are not completely people.

As an avid reader of QC, I felt the sudden urge to join in the fun here on the forums.

I am a certified old fart from the midwestern US of A. I am a complete and total QC junkie. I discovered QC when one of my WoW guildies said my toon looked like Dora, and acted like Faye. When I said "Who are they?" I was bombarded with scorn and ridicule and force fed comic strips via email until I submitted and read the entire series. In all honesty, I was hooked after the first one.

As a medically retired (disabled) veteran, I have a huge amount of time on my hands now, and QC is the buffer between my addictions to WoW, SWTOR, and Skyrim. I have the books, the plushies, and several of the prints now, all because of he greatness that is Questionable Content.

As an old fart, I have no idea what even half of the little abbreviations are (my kids had to explain LOL, GMTA, and ROFL) so if I don't get the joke, oh well.
I think thats about it for me on this post. Have a super day and will see you in the forums. Now I go and try and figure out an avatar, signature, and funny saying for a post script.  :-D

Welcome, fellow old fart. You may not be the oldest old fart in the forum.  I too have been learning the cultural references as I go, sometimes with reference to Urban Dictionary, Googling the anime and other references, or concluding I don't need to understand it all. I compare it to a previous binge: The Master and Commander series of novels was so laden with early 1800's nautical jargon it needed a glossary. I purchased it, decided I didn't need to know the position of every sail and line -- neither did Stephen Maturin -- but valued the glossary anyway for other entries. In that series, the geography needed an atlas. I bought one. And it needed a repeat archive binge. I re-read the series, as I have QC 2.5 times.

This place is even currently looked after by an old fart*!  You should fit in fine.

* The other mods are not old farts, though.

You'd be surprised at the number of posters here over the age of 45.

Myself currently included.

What about young farts? I'm getting close to 30 but I think I can consider myself a young fart. Can we welcome farts of all ages? I might be too sleepy for this to be particularly coherent.
