We are called the Noodle Knights(We forgo the way of the pirate, for we are not worthy of the title). We are well versed in the ways of Pastafariansim, we are essentially like the UN Peacekeepers. We never start wars, and only go on the offensive to reclaim lands for the needy. We have Pasta Paladins, the strongest, and the brute force of us, the Macaroni Mages, the smartest of us, and the Sauce Scribes, the support groups who supply us and refugees. The Council that leads us is one from each of the three groups, if you wish to join, you can just send me a Private message, and I will send you the oath, we are based out of Lima, Ohio, and are looking for others to spread our might.

First, I don't see how that ISN'T spam.
Second, why is its profile picture in French? I feel like I already know why, I just wanna hear it.

You know what I realized?
More than half of all new converts get accounts and log off almost immediately. It's obvious why, but there should be some system to help reduce this statistic.

The statistics are about the same as for use of newly-acquired promotional credit accounts. Use it once, cash in your coupon, bury it in the desk drawer.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Get one. Use it, and pay it off promptly (but not so promptly that you don't pay a couple of dollars in interest). Use it a couple of times a year, even if you don't need to. Establishing credit is one of the most important things you can do for yourself as a young adult. I got my first card (Sears) around 1976 or 77. Because Mrs. T and I are not complete drunken layabouts, our credit rating is consistently as high as a credit rating can be, and in a pinch we can access as much money as we need in any realistically imaginable circumstance. This is in direct contrast to both of my brothers, who each earn whole number multiples of my annual income. Because they don't pay attention to their credit health, neither one can qualify for a mortgage. We qualified for a mortgage on a second home last year, though we ultimately chose not to buy it. We already have a mortgage on our primary residence, as well as an equity loan. One brother earns well in excess of $500K per year, but he cannot even get a car loan because he's such an idiot about credit management.

The only reason to avoid establishing credit is if you plan to go completely dark, and live in a hollow tree in the Alaskan wilderness.

Thanks for the advice.

You don't know me.
Random thought incoming:
Isn't 'credit' something you get on the streets of Compton?

And did you also realise dear Urk many of the "new converts" (ahem, cough, splutter) make their first post, ask a question, stick around for an entire 2 minutes and never log back in to find out the answer to their stupid questions? Bit of a give-away really. How else would one know the "new converts" are derived from the same source? To put it in a religious context, perhaps this thread should be renamed QUELLE URK. Thankyou, you're welcome, aarrrggghh!!!

Whoever you are, I applaud you for staying in character. Now you really do sound like a Trump supporter! Or a Sith lord. Maybe both.
