    My standard of English is excellent BTW, hyphens just make it look better to my eyes and worse to yours.

    I like a card game or two now and then, but I don't exactly know how to play poker lol

    I chose the username cause I think being able to type ♠ is cool. I'm a dork like that

    How old are you then? I thought you were 22/23. He's 13. Makes the actual age difference about the same, whilst the difference in implied maturity 13 ---> 22/23 is much greater generally speaking than the difference between 22/23 ---> 32/33

    Hyphens are okay by the way, I was just making one of those nudgy-nudgy jokes, as I'm sure you're aware as someone with your excellent standard of English.

    I'm 23 as of this post; you're 36 or something aren't you?

    Mind, these days I pretend to anyone who doesn't know that I'm 19. So that's a much bigger diff.

    Your nudgy nudgy jokes and your slightly snide remarks are sometimes hard to tell the difference between - especially as no-one is safe from either.

    I'm 17 years old from Australia and I've been loving (and playing) cricket for two years.

    As well as supporting Australia (obvious) I'm an avid fan of the Bangladesh Tigers and any form of good entertaining cricket.

    Shockying naughtying of late, has to be said. Everyone responsible. Seriously considering retiring it until it stops.

    Ooooh. I'm not as old as 36, 'young' fella. Heath Davis is 36-ish. I'm not quite that old. The difference between yourself and Fiji-bati and yourself and myself is similar. Unless you are actually 19 as it sounds like you have a penchant for pretending to be.

    Why should anyone be safe from either? Still, I prefer a cheap Carry On style gag to a snide remark.
