I would like to know how a census thread turned into talk of religion and sex.

Threaddrift is a tradition. It's so common, in fact, that we don't have a Threaddrift Day. BTW, wait for drifttalks about Jews, Muslims, racism issues or terrorism: they're as funnier as the sex and religion ones; but the best ones, in my opiniom, are when we review past historical events and personalities.

You know, I think that, to keep with the metaphor, it should really be called "thread fray".

(Also, don't we have one about Jews and one about racism right now?)

Location: The Lone Star State
Basics
Username: Nate
Name: My full title is Natheus Gilliami, Emporer of Tamriel. Okay, not really
Other nicknames: Nate is my general nickname, and my grandfather calls me Ro or Thanaro.
Birthplace: SE Texas, USA
Place of residence: SE Texas, USA
Occupation: Slacker student

Identity
Gender: Agenderish male. I consider myself a man, but I feel that my Y chromosome has about as much weight to my identity as my hair color.
Sexuality: Homoramantic bisexual (both genders can be pleasing to the eye and a certain other organ, but I've only been in love with men, and most of my perverted thought involve a penis in some way)
Relationship: Single. :'(
Nationality: American
Ethnicity: White, but I think the only part of my heritage that I'm even remotely interested in my small Irish heritage.
Religion: none, atheist
Politics: pretty leftist, especially for Texas - maybe completely socially left, a few grains of economically conservative, but mostly, in my state I could be called a communist or at least a socialist.

Measurements
Age: 23
Height: Short (5'2")
Weight: Chubby (200+)
Shoe size: Disproportionately big for my height (US 12~13)
Blood type: No clue
Handedness: Right, for everything. Don't worry, I wash my hands afterwards.

Languages
Native language(s): English (Southern US variety, y'all)
Other languages: Japanese (very good, but not fluent), Spanish (not bad), French (ditto), some understanding of at least the grammar of German, Italian, Hebrew, Latin, Ancient Greek, and bits and pieces of others.
Your conlangs: Currently, Newroman (in need of a revamp phonologically), Entarese, Unnamed fusional Japanofinnish-like conlang, and a billion unfinished ideas

Favourites: 1 each!
Favourite language: Japanese
Favourite colour: Blue
Favourite food: American-style pizza, especially thin crust supreme
Favourite drink: Sprite
Favourite sport: uh, the one with the ball and the people running around doing stuffs
Favourite book: hmmmm... I'll put "World War Z" for the time being.
Favourite movie: Batman: Under the Red Hood (for now. not much of a movie-goer)
Favourite game: Depends, really. I'm a big gamer (usually PC), but there are a lot of game I regularly play. I'd say... Tales of Phantasia (Cross version).
Favorite TV show (I'd think this would be a good addition): Fate/Zero, an anime.

Extra credit
Name one interesting talent you have: Uh... I can speak a certain language very well despite not ever having traveled to its country and knowing maybe five people from it. That might actually be somewhat common here, though.
Your favourite pun: the majority of puns make me groan...

I've never been able to figure out why people here think thread drift is unique to this forum and not commonplace.

It's not, we just have far less of any sort of taboos against it. Despite some efforts for them *stink eye*

And I've been on dozens where any off-topic comment brings a lecture from a mod and frequently some form of black mark.

I'd personally rather there not be thread-drift in these archival NOTA threads. Especially the Quote Thread and such.

Bow. Bow. Is there a negative stigma to necroing on this forum? I get that kind of feeling.

I've actually never been on a forum that didn't have a negative reaction to necroing.

I'm new to forums and I never encountered the word until yesterday. What is the maximum time a thread can be inactive before a new post is considered necromantic?

It's... not really a huge issue... but given that this thread is literally titled "census 2013" I think it's pretty obvious to stay away from it. Don't we have a more recent topic like this?

This one doesn't. In fact, you are expected to search for an appropriate old thread to necromance before you start a new thread! But it is the only forum I know that entertains that stance on thread necromancy.

There is nothing wrong with reviving old threads here per se. Sometimes someone has something valuable to contribute to an old thread that hasn't seen activity for months or even years. I have done this several times in the past, e.g. in The Great Proto-Indo-European Thread and in European languages before Indo-European.

BUT - this thread is ZBB Census 2013, and that means that contributing to it in 2016 is meaningless.

I've just realised that this is the more recent topic, and there must have been a Census 2011 thread before this. I even started this topic and wrote that in the opening comment... Oh dear...
