I have a few. 

1) Looking snazzy

14787268972_bd545a2690_z.jpg

Nah. That one never gets old.

2) Research (finding information)

Real Life: *goes to scholarly article database* *and wikipedia* *and wades through a whole bunch of questionable sources on Google* *finally just decides to find a book* *except there are ten dozen of those...*

BZPower: BS01--> Greg Dialogues or official story sources.---> Done (zip).

3) Citing sources/quoting people

Real Life:

 (parenthetical citation) [...]Author, Source. "Article Title." Website Title. Publisher or Sponsor, 1 Jan. 2010. Web. 30 July 2014.

BZPower:

 [quote name="source of quote"]quote is here[/quote]

4) Publishing fiction

14787301832_6fbf936e83_z.jpg

5) Talking to yourself

6) Spending time with people (in general)

7) Stealing stuff

Well, what I say almost always sounds dorky in real life, but one can go back and retype a post until it sounds right to make a joke or a snappy retort or something.

Staying out of arguments is significantly easier here. Not that that's stopped me until recently.

Talking to people. Seriously. I'm almost utterly incapable of doing it in real life.

Unless I "emulate" sociability, in a way. But if I do that for more than a day or two, I literally (not misusing that word) have a mental breakdown that lasts several hours.

 

Similar, but interacting with really cool people. There are a lot of you here.

Sharing stuff about Bionicle. There's so many people who, when I mention I still build with Lego, give me a weird look, so I just don't anymore. Here I can actually show off all my drawings and builds and not say "oh, it's just a robot."

 

And yes, talking to people. I can totally sympathize with you, Kopekemaster.

Asking people if they dream about farm animals is a lot easier here. People just look at you funny when you ask them in real life (outside of BrickFair, of course).

Amen. There's a lot of truth in this statement. People still seem to find it weird when an "older" dude says he builds with LEGO.

Talking about Bionicle. The people here are only ones I know that still have an interest in the theme, and even Lego in general. And since I still really like Bionicle, its nice to be able to discuss it with others.

Everyone is one choice away from being the bad guy in another person's story.

Having in-depth discussions about BIONICLE, other themes, and even other storylines... You don't meet people that are into that kind of thing much in real life, at least not where I live.

Collecting your thoughts and expressing them well. Being honest I still have trouble doing that here - but believe me it's a lot better than the irl version of me (people always misunderstand what I'm trying to express :( ).

While it applies to this website as any other I'm on, the only thing that is easier to do on websites then real life is talk about fandoms with friends. For me, it's BIONICLE, Ben 10 or Power Rangers/Super Sentai. Naturally, I don't have many friends in real life that are interested in any of these.Thus websites dedicated to them are great, because it allows me to interact with others that share my same interests, and make new friends.

It is really nice not having to reply to someone immediately and having time to check sources, plan what you're going to say, throw something clever in there, and then post maybe a few hours later.

Generally, I find that it's really difficult to be absent from real life for several months and then revive myself for about a week. I've done that twice since leaving BZP, however.

 

BZPower is pretty much the only place of the two where teens and adults can have in-depth discussions about BIONICLE, though. Closest I can get to it is a conversation with my little brother, and he'd much rather talk about Super Smash Bros.

I guess for me it's actually approaching people and forming friendships. :fear:

 

Apart from that, discussing Lego and Bionicle, obviously. ^_^

Trading. People are so hard to barter with in real life.
