Asked by Katniss (6641points) November 21st, 2013 from iPhone

Am I allowed to ask this? Sometimes it’s hard to tell whether a Jelly is male or female. Poor dxs, for example, always gets accused of being a girl.
I was thinking it would be helpful or at least interesting to know the age bracket, sex, and possibly the location of other Jelly’s, especially since we have so many new members.

Anybody game?

I’ll start. I’m not scared. lol

Thank you for asking this. I have been curious too, but been too afraid to ask.

Oh boy. This is never an easy question for me. The A and L are easy; I’m 47 (as of yesterday) and British.

I’m male, but I was born female and I’m about ¾ through the transition process.

I am also very surprised that @KNOWITALL is 40. I would have guessed at under 30 for sure. Also @Adirondackwannabe is older than I thought too.

<—- I’m jonsblond, not @Blondesjon. Blondesjon is my husband. Many people get us confused. I don’t understand why it’s so hard to tell us two apart.

People still ask this?
Almost expecting to hear the dial-up modem sound.

Katniss's avatar

@Nimis Obviously. lol It’s a classic.
Now answer the damn question.

I think we all know H_C’s sex. It’s on his profile after all…and just about every question he asks makes it clear he’s a dude.

I like that everyone who has posted from New York state has made sure to specify that they are not in New York City.

First please accept my sincere apology everyone. I always tell myself not to give out too much information on the net for the sake of safety. But now I’ve come to realize that Fluther isn’t like many sites out there. People are so friendly. Moreover, no one seem to be deceiving each other. That’s what I particularly like about Fluther.

So now I decide to give out my real profile:

P.S: I said I was sorry :(

Nimis's avatar

@Katniss I’m not trying to withhold personal information. Just that there are much more interesting ways to ask this question. :)

@amujinx Brings back memories!

Holy smokes Bullwinkle, I could have passed you on BART or at the mall and never knew it!?

@livelaughlove21 I think we all know H_C’s sex. It’s on his profile after all…and just about every question he asks makes it clear he’s a dude.
I am not trying to hide it; by the usual commentary more than a few seem to think gender distictions should go the way of T-Rex. ;)

@Espiritus_Corvus I’m amused that you’re still counting in fractions

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

@downtide Every day counts, bro.

Blackberry's avatar

Yea, there’s a lot of east coasters here. We should all meet in the Appalachians.

glacial's avatar

That would be cool.

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

Why don’t we all just take over the old Biltmore Mansion in Asheville for a week.? There should be enough room for everyone. We could get the ultimate group rate. We could get them to open the rooms for us and bring in adequate service staff, including a full kitchen and we could live out a late Victorian – Belle Epoch fantasy. We would have sumptuous breakfasts on the balcony off the library overlooking the mountains, luncheon in the Winter Garden (solarium/arboretum), dine in the main gallery or library, cognac and coffee in the den. Enormous stone hearths, cavernous halls and ceilings, and paneled rooms that make the Citizen Kane set look like a cheap motel. This place is the ultimate Dark House Set. There is horseback riding, biking, hiking and kayaking along the nearby streams and mountain trails, or one could spend the whole week exploring the house, grounds and vineyards. They are quite proud of their wine. We could have wine tastings, films, and anything we want. How cool would that be?

Don’t mind me. I think I just need a little shoretime.

glacial's avatar

@Espiritus_Corvus I could seriously use some shoretime.

ibstubro's avatar

@Espiritus_Corvus All I know about the Biltmore mansion I learned from watching the movie, “Being there” staring Peter Sellers.

Count me in. But, head’s up? Don’t be surprised if some members come prepared for an insurrection when they attempt to to evict us.

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

Yeah. We’ll just buy the damned place. Make this the IRL Fluther “mansion” everybody goes to when they reach 10,000 lurve. The place is beautiful.

ibstubro's avatar

10,000 is too much! I just reached 5,000 and I believe that’s plenty.

It’s probably big enough for all. We’ll just make the newbies live with the servants and help with the chores. There’s sure to be suites for the 10,000+ crowd!

Well have to check the place out and create new lurve rewards. Private bath, view, etc. Surely 5,000 will at least earn me a sitting room adjoining the bedroom! lol

@PhiNotPi, you didn’t surprise me. I’ve guessed the ages of nearly everyone I’ve seen posting, and I find I wasn’t far off on any. @Katniss is kind of funny though, because her profile picture is younger, but she talks older a lot. Not always. We’ve all been 9¾ on here sometimes. giggle smirk

Isn’t 50 Googolplex considerably longer than the universe has existed?

talljasperman's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr I repeated most of it… until I get it right. I have problems letting go of my regret. From failing in university and letting the one woman get away. Every time I have a two week flashback I add an other googolplex.

@Brian1946 Did you get to know I’m a Vietnamese through this thread?

Brian1946's avatar


I think I guessed that you’re Vietnamese from some of your other posts, starting with the one where you said that you lived in something like a military camp.

However, your quip in this thread confirms it.

dxs's avatar

@Coloma Were you born on a leap year?

@dxs Are you saying you believe @Coloma to be 216 years young??
