Yep, I agree with you, not going to happen - at least not for another couple of decades and as another poster said - he will find out about girls soon.

As for having ones facts right - I also learnt that lesson (well sort of, still have to reminded of it every now and again) .

RODLMAO; however I seriously doubt I ever make any IN crowd, maybe I can join the likes DOJ et al as a junior member of the peanut gallery.

On a serious note, the OP is either as you describe or an awesome troll. Again assuming the former, where is the fine line of telling it as it is and yet encouraging one to dream big. I seem to be forever waltzing from one side to the other .

Pee pads. The solids go where the liquid goes. In a plastic sack and into the dumpster at the marina. Rare. He likes to water and fertilize trees, so he saves it up for opportune moments.
