sometimes when I'm talking to people online, I genuinely think ''I'm really cool irl and you dont understand that''
and then I get a little sad that I care about proving myself to people on the internet
User avatar #276220 to #276187 - revengeforfreeze (06/13/2014) [-]
Why? Fitting in on the internet is just a matter of preference, really. It's really shunned, but on no valid basis; especially for people who are autistic. The internet provides an easy way for them to express themselves in way they may not be possible to in real life. Yet, some people discourage finding friends on the internet on the basis of "you're supposed to meet people irl".

I've heard that you can get a more fulfilling feeling from finding acceptance in real life, but people usually don't think at the same level as I do in my day to day life. They think about fulfilling basic biological needs and I think about how to design weapons or how to spend my time the best way and not become a wage slave.
User avatar #276239 to #276220 - TheseChocodiles (06/13/2014) [-]
no I do see the value in having friends on the internet because I do have them, it's just sometimes you encounter fuckers who dismiss your opinion for whatever reason and you just want to shake them because they don't understand you.
User avatar #276241 to #276239 - revengeforfreeze (06/13/2014) [-]
I know how you feel all too well. I've encountered that a lot on this board. Especially one dude who likes to call me out on my weirdness, though I suppose I can forgive him since he has reasons to be like he is.

I still hate people like that that refuse to realize how everyone has formed their opinions under circumstances that made them act a certain way and that people are attatched to their opinions. Really, who likes it when their opinion is disregarded as less important?

I'm not cool at all in real life, so I don't have this problem.

KYM has so many articles about politicized shit nowadays, especially hashtags. Most of them are made by the same two users. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if they're looking at every little shortlived trend just to annoy the users on that website (that is the point of the website, but a lot of this shit barely lives after a week passes).
User avatar #276185 to #276182 - majormayor (06/13/2014) [-]
On a side note, all of those hashtags help convince me to keep off of Twitter. At least on Tumblr there is a lot of interesting content. There's too few things on Twitter I care about to make an account.

Walked into a coffee shop and ordered a cup
The girl says "small, medium, large?"
I say "bitch I don't give a fuck"
She said "I can't process your order if you don't pick a size"
I said "fine, I'll take a large, but I still don't give a fuck, alright?"

I partially agree. 1v1 sports like tennis or billiards are pretty interesting in my opinion. Team sports, however, have gone to shit recently. Those fuckers have no motivation to do well. Especially in football - you've got millionaires, who know they'll make a fortune regardless of what the outcome is. How do you expect someone like that to run after a fucking ball? Watching random rookies play is more entertaining, since they actually TRY to play well, not just look good for the cameras.

Gladiatorial combat would be a sport.
You're going to tell me you don't support gladiatorial combat?
User avatar #276194 to #276176 - aoeui (06/13/2014) [-]
Me too. But I think it should be lethal, unlike thechosentroll. It can take place in some lawless country in the middle east and it can be supported from watchers around the world. Would be so glorious watching a Russian fighting a Korean who then goes onto chop an African in half who finally gets his arm cutoff by a Iraqi man.
User avatar #276211 to #276194 - EdwardNigma (06/13/2014) [-]
I agree with the lethality, actually. Go hard or go home. But do you really need to make literally everything about race? God damn nigger. Thechosentroll, it is unlikely obviously, but I don't actually see the problem. It becomes a problem when people are forced into it, it needs to be a volunteer thing, with massive rewards from it so people take the risk.

The only problems that arise are
A: Corruption of judges in the fight (Like the Romans who would say "yeh okay let him live" and what not, though an easy solution is not having that.
B: Corruption of fighters in general, or unfair competition, given lives are at stake.
C: Endless bitching from people calling it "inhumane" even though I can't see how it is inhumane to allow people to die how they choose, for honour an glory.

A non lethal version could exist, but if we're doing this, we can't half ass it, at mose we can 90% ass it, and just get hardcore maiming.

I think we should reinstate it. Well, a non-lethal version, so people don't bitch, but definitely bring it back. Like wrestling, except with weapons. Maybe cover the edges of the weapons in paint and make the gladiators wear clothes, so you can see what someone's been slashed or something along those lines.

Athletes get hurt enough already, I don't think that allowing people to swing bludgeons at eachother is going to be helpful for anyone
User avatar #276195 to #276193 - thechosentroll (06/13/2014) [-]
Like I said, they don't have to actually get hurt. Wrestlers bludgeon eachother with shit all the time and they're fine. I'm sure we can somehow create a gladiator version of it.

I know, I know I said boxers and wrestlers. But they practically do the same thing, except in wrestling there's a lot more body-slamming. I doubt brain ailments caused by repeated head injuries are non-existent among wrestlers, even if they might be lower than in other sports.

I ordered a donner wrap and a drink for delivery.

I understand a place being really busy - but I really don't get how my ONE thing, that is made in under 5 minutes has been delayed by 2 hours (which is their estimate for when I'll get it)
User avatar #276140 to #276138 - leonhardt (06/13/2014) [-]
It takes time to deliver all the other 5 minute sandwiches to everybody else that ordered them. Say they get 100 orders at once. They only have 10 delivery guys. Each delivery takes 15 minutes. That's a total of 2 hours for each delivery guy to get those 100 deliveries done, assuming they don't do any double or triple runs.

Plus, the World Cup is on.

FunnyJunk is full of users that are just plain underinformed about all kinds of things. Look at the arguments over feminism on here for example. There's barely any actual arguments that even deserve to be called strawmen. I think that even the people who call themselves feminists on here are a bit ill-informed about it (I saw one of them recently telling an asexual person to get laid after getting a red thumb from that person. She was complaining about FJ being so damn racist and sexist and its users whining about being oppressed and the friendzone on yet another post that's a joke about black people).
User avatar #276128 to #276127 - majormayor (06/13/2014) [-]
Pretty much my thoughts are that many users around here change their views not so much because of new information but simply because of how they feel. There has been much less atheist content after the rise of the "euphoric" meme but such posts still reach the front page with euphoric/fedora jokes being discouraged. Many FJ users may as well "become" feminists in a backlash to all the anti-feminist content, but I'm sure they would be very ill-informed about the subject. It's funny how some people complain about the OP not posting funny content. I may as well blame the atheists for starting that by posting content that wasn't even meant to be funny but managed to jerk so many posts to the front page anyway.

Why do people even birth children that are defective enough not to have a normal life? It's hard to define, but sometimes, you can easily see that this child won't be able to do anything independently or become anything.
User avatar #276180 to #276085 - TheseChocodiles (06/13/2014) [-]
Well it all depends on the quality of life and how people define it. If you define quality of life as smiling and laughter, then you aren't going to get rid of a person who can do that, despite defects.
If you define it with more depth, then you may not see the point in keeping the child.
User avatar #276181 to #276180 - revengeforfreeze (06/13/2014) [-]
I guess. I don't really value that kind of 'happiness' where you smile and laugh and that, it's all very little. In depth is more convincing and quite possibly the only really lasting hapiness. How that is supposed to be attained, I'm not even sure. Meditation is a good candidate though.
User avatar #276183 to #276181 - TheseChocodiles (06/13/2014) [-]
Well you don't value it because you don't have learning difficulties, but when your intelligence only extends to so much laughing and smiling is important.
User avatar #276184 to #276183 - revengeforfreeze (06/13/2014) [-]
Good point, but they'll never be able to join in on 'the hedonic treadmill'. Not that it's preferable or anything, really, I guess if you could play some really calming and soothing music to these children often, they would have a higher quality of life than average.

Normal life
My life is alright, about as good as it can be right now, and I meet peers on the internet. I'm aware of my flaws and it's something I think of every day, so I don't need you to point them out.

I have the capacity at least + I'm fairly intelligent and I live in a great country.
User avatar #276124 to #276120 - teoberry (06/13/2014) [-]
And what makes you think you're gonna become anything? Take the log out of your eye before you point out the splinter in your neighbours, buddy. Your intelligence means nothing. Life isn't about how much you accomplish or if you're "normal". You legit need to get off the internet.
User avatar #276130 to #276124 - revengeforfreeze (06/13/2014) [-]
Besides, before I was at this point, you know what I did?
Ah yes, 2011 I went to school each day even though I was lethargic. Mostly for fear of judgement from my peers, though, but still. I slaved until I had a nervous breakdown and went on even after that. Probably resulting in some bad emotional problems, but whatever. Shit fell apart after that though, and I'm only starting to recover now. I help at home too, buy groceries and all that. Do I feel bad about not doing much? Of course. Change is nothing that comes overnight though.

Please dude, stop failing right now. You're always putting me down for being different than you and engaging in different activities.
Normal life =/= conforming to societys standards of what is normal and not normal
I'd say life is very much about what you can accomplish. Accomplishments is the highest purpose one can achieve along with living a life where you're comfortable and healthy. As I've stated, I'm aware of my flaws and problems, but I don't only 'whine', I do plenty other things on the internet too.
"Point out the splinter in your neighbours"
I think that by bringing someone who will almost only suffer in life and cannot have sex, cannot masturbate, cannot eat properly without help, cannot move properly, cannot have higher cognitive functions, cannot meet or keep any friends, then you've pretty much lost any moral high ground you might have had. I can point out flaws in others even if I'm flawed myself, in fact, that's what everyone does. You're flawed too, yet you point out flaws in me, which is in itself a flaw, considering you're preaching against it. INCEPTION!

What makes me think I'm going to become anything? There's a wide array of things I can become. I can become a caprenter, I can become a janitor, I could easily become a psychologist, join the military... Yeah. I have opportunities in front of me. What makes you think I'm not going to? Also, if I may say so myself, a sports scholarship is worth less than being a janitor, since both can pay taxes but in one of the jobs you're actually also contributing with something helpful. Spoiler alert: It's not in sports
What more, what more.. oh, and I am not dumb. My intelligence doesn't mean 'nothing'.
User avatar #276133 to #276129 - teoberry (06/13/2014) [-]
Ooooooooooooooh boy.
a) How are accomplishments the highest purpose in life? If anything, being happy should be your only goal. I'd rather accomplish nothing but be truly happy than be a multimillionare who's depressed.

b) Not surprised you put sexual stuff first. You thirsty fucker. Damn shame you're never gonna get any because you're a fat idiot who's too focused on your (seemingly) nihilistic outlook on life. What does is matter if someone can't eat without help? Ever stop to think that some people enjoy taking care of others? That some people find joy and hope in helping out those who can't even help themselves? Not everyone is a selfish dickhead. You don't know they're suffering. Some of the happiest people I've seen have been those who you describe. A family friend might never be able to live by himself even thought he's 22 and has severe mental issues, fuck, he can barely speak, but I can see his eyes light up when he's watching a football game or playing with his pets or throwing a basketball around. The people who have the moral high ground are those who don't terminate pregnancies because they're too lazy/selfish to take care of a "challenged" kid. That's being selfish. That's being a prick.

c) Keep thinking that buddy. You say you can make something out of yourself, but at the end of the day, you're still just an overweight kid who has no marketable skill except maybe knowing some Nietzsche. I don't care if my job helps people. You don't need a job to help people and make them happy and to contribute to society. You have to actually just work at changing lives. Hint: Asking existential questions online doesn't help anyone.
User avatar #276145 to #276133 - revengeforfreeze (06/13/2014) [-]
a) Well, it depends really. I'd rather put my health at risk while conducting some dangerous experiment.
guy has a point

b) Huh, a guy in his teenage years experiencing a pull from the strongest drive we have? strange. I may be fat, but I'm not an idiot. You are way too harsh, man. And I still think it's selfish to birth people like that, because they'll not experience much pleasure themselves. We should think of the people themselves, not the people around them. If they really feel that they need a child, they can adopt. I'm not selfish, dude, I'm thinking of the children themselves. A person like that, I'd say, still has a semblance of a normal life. I'm guessing that since he can throw his basketball around, he can also feed himself and move somewhat. Still though, you're showing how I'm not even in your moral sphere with all these words.

You are right there, the people who are too lazy to terminate such pregnancies are also immoral.

c) Sure, it doesn't help anyone but myself, but I can still do something to help earth by a fair amount that you could probably never do. Even I have a hard time thinking about it and so on, but if I had to do it, I guess I would. How do you know I have no marketable skills?
User avatar #276151 to #276145 - teoberry (06/13/2014) [-]
a) Not sure what that has to do with anything.

b) If that's selfish, wanna know what's more selfish? Terminating the pregnancy because you don't want to/can't feel you can take care of them, even when you don't know what it's gonna be like. I think burnsie put it best. They're still gonna have pleasure. It might not be the same pleasures we have, but I don't think it's good to assume their entire life will be full of suffering just because they're handicapped. And if by "feed himself", you mean cook, then no. If you mean bring a fork to his mouth, he still needs some help, yet I've never seen him angry or sad. Most of those kids have a semblance of a normal life, you just can't see it.

c) When the only subject you can hold your ground on is philosophy, I can assume.
User avatar #276160 to #276151 - revengeforfreeze (06/13/2014) [-]
a) I'm saying that being happy isn't really my number one priority considering I have an ever burning desire for sex, food, and everything there is (as everyone else does) that can never be sated.

b) Maybe. No, not cook. I mean take the fork and put it in his mouth. Maybe you're right, maybe I can't see it. Just saying though, that I'd have a much easier time reading if you didn't have to insult me in the process.

c) I used to be good at math until I got mentally/physically sick. So, I lost that. Maybe can still retrieve it to some point, I do believe I can, since neuralplasticity lasts pretty well into your 30s. Diagnosing with psychology is not that hard and I can probably still learn languages like I used to. I'm actually not that good at philosophy, I just know of a few concepts that make sense. I know some basics of physics and that's about it. I have.. whatchamacallit.. physical endurance though. So, I can always do something that takes strength or so to do. Or I could just join some bullshit job like life coach or something like that, as I've been pretty good at helping people see the positive side in their life. Yes. Me. That's right. I'm not bad at everything though, especially since I'm capable of higher forms of cognition than, say, a cat. That goes without saying, to be honest. Pie also said that you are capable of changing your mind and rewire it fairly well (which is pretty much the biggest boon of human beings) at least in the early years of your life. I also don't fear death that much, the only thing I fear is dying, so I can always end my life to make place for others. I would hurt a lot of people in the process, though.

Some guy had a daughter with a (bunch of?) disabilitie(s). Mind of a toddler (she was 13), and something(s) that made her in almost constant pain. I think it was a problem with her spine or something. One day, her dad got so sick of seeing her in pain that her brought her into the garage, put her in the car, hooked a tube up the the exhaust, put the other end in the car, started it up, left the garage, effectively euthanized her himself, and then turned himself in to the police.

Apparently the whole country was torn on issue. Many people wanted him to walk, many people didn't. In the end, the judge ruled against him. She (or maybe it was he) charged him with first degree murder -- 25 years in prison. The father was visibly confused, so the judge looked him in the eye and said something along the lines of "Mr. [insert whatever his name was here], in all your time with your daughter was she never happy? Did she not smile when you were with her? Did she find enjoyment in nothing? You already know the answers to these questions. You and her mother gave them to us. You didn't just end your daughter's suffering, you also ended her happiness, her joy, and her love."

Life aint all suffering. Normal life is overrated. I myself want to be a superhero.

I'm not sure, I've suffered through constant physical pain and I would not like to have lived the rest of my life like that, rather ended it. Though, I suppose that me not having grown up like that is also a determining factor. Life isn't all suffering, but there is definitely a lot of it. I'd say the standard mode of life is either suffering or boredom, we do momentrary things to relieve the pain or the boredom. Buddhism yo

Wasn't that a giant tumour? Didn't he have an operation to fix it? And I myself would probably terminate a person like that, that's just me though. I'm thinking that if this person will have loads more pain than they will have pleasure, it's just not morally sound.

You're making all these attributions. I never said my judgement was objective, this is mere opinion. I'm not saying you should kill them, I'm saying you should terminate the foetuses who you can see are going to have substantial damage.

Yeah, but your opinion is pretty retarded considering your definitions of "normal", and the fact that you act like/think you should make decisions for others. I'm not offended at all, I'm just amazed at your bleak outlook on life and how fucking sad it must be to be you.
User avatar #276143 to #276139 - revengeforfreeze (06/13/2014) [-]
You're right in that it was pretty sad to be me earlier, but I've started to grow up more and not take so much offense to what people say on the internet for example. Also realizing that I need to take care of myself and that I need to live for my parents and friends. My opinion of normal are retarded? That's your opinion and I respect your right to have it. I'd say there are some universal moral laws, we haven't charted that territory very well though since religion's been taking care of that for centuries.

Ever thought about that... I may not exactly be normal either? I haven't told you about the worst yet, and I really don't want to, but if I have to I will. As I said, I'm still considering whether or not it was moral or immoral of my parents to bring me into existence. Mom had some issues though, so whenever I raise that question, everyone gets all touchy.. icky situation.

Saddest thing is probably being trapped by my instincts.
User avatar #276144 to #276143 - teoberry (06/13/2014) [-]
Exactly. See, no one's normal. Everyone has their different problems. You shouldn't try to justify a termination of pregnancy based on "normal" or perceived accomplishments because those are VERY subjective terms. Each person is different, and while a handicapped kid might not seem to have any impact, for all you know, they could've changed their parents outlook on life. Raising the kid could've taught them virtues they wouldn't have otherwise.

User avatar #276026 to #276019 - theblondefetus (06/13/2014) [-]
I wouldn't go as far to say any or half, but I guess that does have some validity

However I do believe that for every man who obsesses over the looks of all the women around him, there's a woman doing the same with the men around her. It's not like women don't sexualize men as well. Furthermore I don't see that that has to necessarily be a problem. We're all sexual beings to some extent and it's evolutionary to seek out and desire those attributes.
User avatar #276031 to #276026 - thebestpieever (06/13/2014) [-]
Yeah, but it does say a lot that the go to insult for men is being stupid, or "a douchebag" or whatever. But with women they're "sluts" or they're "ugly bitches". Plus, really, go see any video with a woman in it and I can attest a good chunk of the comments is something along the lines of "I wanna do her so hard". Which is not unseen, but certainly much less common on similar content with a male host.
User avatar #276039 to #276031 - theblondefetus (06/13/2014) [-]
If I could speculate on that, I would say the slut/whore insults are derived from centuries of sex being looked at as shameful, puritanism and all that, and it won't completely go away until our cultures in general are more accepting of sex in general.

And with the prevalence of those types of comments, again speculation, but it may have a lot to do with the usual dynamic male-female relationships have, that is to say males being the ones to approach and females being the ones to judge and accept. Essentially, in sexual situations males are usually the instigators and this dynamic could manifest itself subconsciously making women less likely to vocalize thoughts like that than men even though a roughly equal number feel them.

In any case I don't believe it's anything as insidious as evidence of a male dominated world trying to keep women down. Hanlon's razor feels appropriate here. It may just be because we've got a lot of stupid people.
User avatar #276050 to #276039 - thebestpieever (06/13/2014) [-]
Well, that's precisely my point. You say, males tend to be the one that approach women and are the ones that instigate this dynamic. Now, the question that one ought to ask is "why is that the case?". Sure, in nature the working is very similar, but humans have a knack for breaking natural systems. One ought to ask themselves why is it that despite giving them the power to choose their partner, our culture still encourages women to passively wait for the options that are laid down in fron of them instead of pro actively looking for it. And how one may fix that.

Hanlon's razor, I think is a way of explaining malicious systems carried out by non-malicious people. While I don't think there's some dude out there named Bill Patriarchy who dedicates his days to keep women in what he judges to be their place, I do believe completely non-malicious people acting out things they consider natural on an emotional level do keep these systems in place. And rationalising both their effects, and just why one might carry on with them or not is a way to changing or outright erasing them. Once you understand the system then it no longer applies to you.
User avatar #276059 to #276050 - theblondefetus (06/13/2014) [-]
I don't know why you think humans are somehow outside of these "natural systems." In fact the only way you can really define a natural system is something outside of what's been created by humans, which is an arbitrary point since they are essentially one and the same, humans being a product of nature and all can't truly make an unnatural product themselves. It's just an extension of nature.

I would like to point out that I never really disagreed with you here, I was just talking. Anyway, as far as the whole passivity thing is concerned, I think it already is more or less "fixed." The way I see it we're currently in the middle of the shift toward gender equality and the people we're describing are little more than remnants of the previous common type of thinking. Already men who act that way are commonly seen less like alpha males and more like degenerates.

I wholeheartedly agree with that last sentence, actually goes along with what I was going to say at the end of my last comment but decided against it. Like a lot of problems it boils down to the education, awareness, and intellect of the general population. That's also why I've been against most of what I've seen under the YesAllWomen trend, a lot of it is just people with misguided ideas spewing misrepresented facts and hate. It's counter productive.
User avatar #276062 to #276059 - thebestpieever (06/13/2014) [-]
Well, that nature thing is mainly semantics. I don't think human created systems are natural. Otherwise, the very word natural becomes meaningless because if everything is natural, then nothing is unnatural and both words become redudant. After all if everything is natural then there's no need to describe it as such, it just is. And if nothing is unnatural because everything is natural, then that word becomes increasingly unhelpful as well in usual discourse.

No. I hold that nature's systems are to be taken as more or less self-preserving cycles that allow species to continue to grow and change through generational replication and natural selection, the new generation born only to do the same. This process being in service of the other organism's around them. Human systems on the other hand are less cyclical and less linear. Not in theory, but in practice most of human action has resulted in a countdown to extinction to many species and has resulted in certain areas of the planet to become death zones. I don't think unnatural practically means bad, nor am I suggesting to ditch what I consider unnatural systems in order to go back to the simple natural ones. But I do think they're an alteration to what was already in place.
User avatar #276063 to #276062 - theblondefetus (06/13/2014) [-]
It certainly is semantics, but I think in this case it has a big impact on the way a lot of people think about things. It subtly drives the idea that humans are somehow special, separated from and above nature, which sets the two up in opposition. Making that distinction is one of the few things I'll go out of my way to make a point about. Honestly I'd like to see the whole "unnatural" concept removed from human vocabulary entirely and replaced with something more accurate, though I don't know what that could be

Human level intelligence certainly did change the game. It's fed into a completely new era of complexity and social development quite literally unthinkable beforehand. I just see these complex new systems as extensions and new developments in the larger system that created them rather than a different system broken off from another.

Some user on this site used to call every anon that. "soldier of my brothers army".
These are just the first 4 that appeared in google.

I think it's his equivalent of saying "No u"

Yeah sure, compromising human rights for information sounds like a wonderful idea.

It would be kind of inhumane, but it sure as Hell would be efficient. What if the information is, for example, the location of an atomic bomb?

Or hell, what if you torture the person just a few minutes to make that person less likely to commit atrocious acts?

Or what if the person actually doesn't know anything and they're just tortured for days on end for no reason

And what if we just start rounding up every war prisoner we take and do the same

If we're willing to torture people just to modify behavior toward less "atrocious acts" (a category which I would argue torture belongs) then we will at least have to evaluate what it is we're really trying to achieve. It certainly isn't peace.
