Wake up! Time to fly!
Yes, I do! So if I was to create one of those nefarious accounts, I would use a picture like that just to see what kind of people would actually respond. Might be good entertainment in itself to create a whole persona to go around that picture... LOL
The scary part is you WILL get someone seriously trying to be with you. think about what kind of stalker you would have from that point forward hehe.
 
Haven't mentioned this before but I'm also a photographer. I usually only shoot when I travel, there just isn't anything interesting around here. Here's some of my best ones from last year. First two are Puerto Vallarta, Mx, third is "Dolly" at Planes of Fame Air Museum, fourth is Lake Isabella Ca. I have daydreams of becoming a real life Walter Mitty, which is profoundly ironic if you've ever seen the movie. Definitely my favorite.

All of these were done on a cheap entry level Nikon, those first two were edited in Microsoft Photos. I don't care what anyone says, you don't need expensive equipment to make good shots. Anyone who says otherwise is selling something.

Beautiful pics man!
 
Recently I've ended up getting into nerf with a bunch of buddies, being the adult children that we are. Needless to say we're taking it way too seriously and there's a bit of a heated arms race currently. I picked up one of the new Adventure Force Pro guns and have been doing some mods. Here's what I started out with:

And here's what I ended up with:

All my external parts came in first so I haven't touched the internals yet, it performs very well out of the box though. I have an improved spring on the way and may add a rifled SCAR barrel to tighten up my groupings a bit, I'll hide it in the suppressor.

It's mostly Worker parts but the suppressor is from an airsoft gun, I drilled it out with a forstner bit to fit over the flash hider. I milled out a wooden block to fit inside a Retaliator stock adapter and bolted it to the receiver, there's just enough space behind the plunger with some sanding to fit a decent nut. I epoxied a picatinny rail under the barrel and bolted it to a wood block inside the shell for structure, then fitted a Worker grip.

I can say the stock really makes this gun easier to use. The spring is very stiff so having something to brace against your shoulder is nice, especially since I have a bigger one (16kg?) on the way.
 
I have a Lenovo Legion 5 arriving thursday so I can game more seriously, bc I had to use an Xbox. xbox is pretty good, but my brother always joins me and my friend's minecraft server and messes stuff up. So I had to make him a spectator, and then he was just asking us to do stuff for him. My friend has a lenovo too, but not a legion 5. he says he doesn't know what model it is and neither do i. so ya, I cant wait to game UNDISTURBED over the weekend and spend some quality time with my friend! :)
