Most of us have been here for a while, and we've probably picked up some wisdom or skills from interacting for so long with others. Skills I've gained: -Debating experience. This year in US History we've had debates on healthcare, racism, and the Hiroshima bombing. I would have been quite nervous about them...except I've had the debates here at F-C and later, GF. Even reading Serious Discussion threads gets you in tune with how people argue and what's probably going to be brought up in a specific topic. -Halo experience. Thanks to Swift I'm a level 30 in Lone Wolves, despite having little to no actual talent in the game. -Conflict resolution. I've been a mod for most of my time here, and I've had to deal with a lot of shit. Dealing with this shit helps make similar stuff in the real world easier as well.
