Perhaps the future leaders were inspired by a combination of ideas or variations of a concept. Like how a writer gets an idea for a book from doing every day activities. The idea of the book never existed before, but by witnessing others the writer made it come into existence

i hate how, for some reason, there's now this weird stigma against college. i don't understand how wanting to learn more about what you enjoy could be a bad thing. I'm going to major in chemistry and hopefully help the world somehow after i'm done with school. how is this bad?

If you want to go and learn, that's great, and something you should do.

It's the idea preached by education that if you don't finish highschool or college, then you can't live successfully, or happily, and that college is a must.

Which it isn't.

Because most people don't like viable fields and go for liberal arts degrees that net them a job as either a teacher or a welfare recipient.

Jacked up college prices cause students to amass a whole mess of debt, causing them to live for the rest of their lives in debt unless they grab themselves a job paying 60,000+ per year.

And a few other reasons.

another problem is the stigma we've had for years against working in a trade without college. Right now college is expensive as hell partly because our schools are overcrowded because everyone without a degree has been looked down on for the last 30 years. Whats wrong with being a plumber or HVAC technician? Those are skilled crafts that make damn good money, but theyre seen as illiterate rednecks.

Yeah well its not like it's the college's fault, it's human nature that's at fault. The government puts out all of these student loans allowing people not fit for college to go, letting them gain useless degrees with no future instead of allowing them to move into the work force fresh out of high school and attain various skills that way. Then the colleges jack up their prices in response to the guaranteed money coming in from the government, which makes it harder for people who actually want to go to college to learn a trade or gain valid experience, and with everybody flaunting the fallacy of "Oh well you NEED to go to college or you will amount to nothing" lots of these people who don't receive aid go anyways and amass hundreds of thousands in debt, only to gain enough experience to go into a mediocre field.

So basically everybody's butthurt because they have no idea how to manage their life (which by the way they don't even teach in college for obvious reasons).

Guess we're lucky here. In Belgium atleast, the system is built so that everyone willing enough can get a chance to study.. student funds payed by the government depending on your social and financial situation, providing cheap living quarters if necesary. My friend's parents are divorced. He lives with his dad and due to the fact he can't provide anymore due to an accident at work, the government pays for his entire education.

The moment they see you're not doing your best and keep failing though, you can lose it all, but that's only fair.

aside from that, no, not having a diploma doesn't make you dumb, ofcourse it doesn't. and yes, it's sometimes unfair that people get the jobs just because of their education, but don't elude yourself by thinking a university education is worthless... "accurately repeat"? on the contrary, university is where you get encouraged to stand alone and get **** done without any help.

education not always means it is useful, however the sole process of education demands certain mental toughness -and students who graduate apparently are better at concentrating, memorizing, applying, working in groups.

Also that is a pretty blind accusation. OF COURSE education prepares people who can work for the society. Society needs proper specialists.
You can go all au natural if you please and live in a forest, but then you won't really be needed for the society.

I ended up skipping college. I'm 18 now.   
I've worked part time on a military base since then, but as I have moved back home I need to find some full time work.   
   
My plan is to save up some money within the next 2 years while publishing my first nonfiction book, and first novel. I also hope to build up a vlogging channel, teach myself computer programming and more fun stuff. I might even college part time.   
   
I hope to build a business within the next 5 years or so using any and all seed money I can gather by being ultra Jew with my finances and any/all of my achievements.    
   
I really think this is unfair but a lot of people give me a hard time about taking this path that will allow me to pursue my dreams while working hard to make a living.   
   
Lots of people look down on me for not going to college full time for the next 4 years and only worrying about studying, but I wouldn't be happy and I don't think I'd be moving toward my real goals and dreams.

My business ideas don't really revolve around programming. All I can say that is you shouldn't give in.

The reason I've gotten so many responses to my comment is because of peoples own personal fails and mentalities. Just because for example one person didn't make they assume no one else can. Which pretty much sets them up to failure forever anyways.

computer science is my minor now. but im saying its not something you get good at by spending a couple hours a week learning.

i wasnt assuming that your plans revolved around programming, but what are your business plans? because unless you are trying to become an entrepreneur i cant see you getting very far at this age with very little job experience.

the main reason everyone has failed at their dreams is because they werent truly committed or they didnt know the right steps to attaining them.

Entrepreneur is basically what it is. I need a starter business of some sort to really begin to build something great. At any rate I'll be working full time, hopefully getting published in the next 2 years, and working on several of my other projects. Programming is a maybe for me, but if I do I will really commit. If worst comes to worst I have a few back up plans, one which includes the Airforce. 4 years a steady job with decent pay and a GI bill to pay for college; I might just do that to begin with, but I'm still thinking about it. At anyrate it's pretty much my fail safe.

I'm not worried about me. In the end I don't care whether I live or die. The beautiful thing about that is: I have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. Survival means nothing to me, I'm interested in living.

I am, by going to school and opening more doors for myself. Going to college isn't synonymous with putting your life on hold. If you seriously think that you'd have to do that just to go to college, then maybe you are right not to go to college. I guess not everyone's cut out for the pressure.

You probably are better off staying in your comfort zone where it's easy, and insignificant.

I never said it was. It's very career specific.

Easy? It's much easier to just college like everyone else and flail about like everyone else. Insignificance, is following the herd just as much as it's trying to stray from it. It takes balance. You're just close minded is all. Convinced your superior, but in the end you're just full of yourself.

And look at you, not even doing it. It's so easy yet you can't even be arsed into doing it.

So it's either that college is too hard for you to deal with, or it's actually easy and you look less ambitious for not being able to do it.

Your problem is that your convinced you need college to be successful. I just don't believe that's the case for every field. I happen to be pursing fields a college degree wouldn't be too useful in. There is nothing wrong with that. And it's not like I'm being lazy. My goals aren't easy, in fact, they are probably more difficult than going to college, or at least on the same level. As I've said before, this was never a matter of right or wrong, but ego and vindication.

It's not even about whether college is needed to do well in life.

It's about a task you find meaningless and easy, yet you can't do it yourself. It's a negative mark on your character. It begs the question.

Then you can't. Going to basic training was a colossal pain in the ass, and I'll admit the term "I'd rather die" came up a few times, but I didn't give up. I didn't give up because I knew I could, and I did. And now? Now I know I can. I know I can because I did. You still don't know if you can because you didn't. You quit, even with all of that ambition you claimed to have. You take everything you've said, and most sane people would come to the conclusion that you can't, not that you can but didn't.

You "believe you'll succeed", but the truth is you're just as much a victim of things being "too hard" as everyone else.

I'll admit I didn't handle it well in my earlier years, but the truth is that really. I just really hate academia. More than I hate spicy food. It's just complete hell to me. Hollow foreboding, it was never about difficulty; it was about becoming so empty that I would simply fade away. I think this may be in part because of my currently unknown health issues. I may have a gluten intolerance, auto immune disease or a thyroid deficiency. I'm drained to begin with, my body is a real bitch. I really just want to work, earn some savings, and get some work experience. I really want to take the time to get my life together and start pursing the things I care about; like literature. I don't see whats so wrong about that. I'll be working hard to support myself and pursue my dreams. Isn't that okay? Is that wrong of me?

It's narcissistic to believe that your work will inevitably be picked up just because you're confident in it, and luck has nothing to do with it when it comes to getting a book published, you simply have to be a good writer and have a story people genuinely want to read, and that also has to happen to coincide with what's selling in the market at the time. If you're writing something no one wants to read, then frankly, you haven't got a chance in hell.

And you should be cynical, any writer worth their salt holds an air of cynicism in order to strive for improvement, being delusional is a terrible and often dangerous thing.

Tell me something I don't know: I'm not naive. But I spent far too many of my years depressed and cynical. It was far too counter productive. But don't worry about me.

I'm pretty much the same. I'm 19, went to a college for a month but decided what I was studying wasn't for me, so I left. Currently trying to figure out what I want to do. Got grades to get into any college I want, but I don't actually feel for anything. Don't have much pressure though, since my family/relatives believe that I'll be big somehow, don't know if they're naive or something, or just have lots of faith in me.

This is some really troublesome ****. I know for a fact I wont start my own company, a lot of work to get somewhere there and I lack motivation at the moment. I would know, my parents worked on their company for many years before getting big and even then it was really hard for them.

So I would say it's always better to have a education to fall back on, if you fail.
Good luck.

Ah...although on the whole you can never skip college, as it is not age restricted. I go to class with a guy in his forties. The whole illusion set up by preliminary schooling that you go to certain schooling at certain ages is really messed. Also, good luck with becoming published and all that, but I advise getting a good ol 9-5 job on top, as unless you actually write that 1-1,000,000 book, you wont get anything out of it. On top of that, hoping to have a business fully started up in just five years time is....well.....just a wee bit shy of lunacy. Only way to actually be successful by that time would be to somehow devise some form of required service or product people need, that isn't already provided absolutely everywhere.

Ah. Well, I get what your saying. Yes. I had been working, I had to move. I'm hunting a full time job; whatever I can get really, but there are plenty of openings where I live. I'm 1/3 finished with my first nonfiction work with around 120 pages, not much but something.

As for business, I'm not sure what kind of business, but there are plenty of mediums. It's not all about creating a gizmo, and I have some years in experience with media. It's just a starter business of some sort within the next 5 years. The real challenge comes after that.

I ended up rejecting the free ride to any average college or university.

Does that bother you? I hope it does. Because the only reason you are bothered is because of the issues you have with yourself.

Your coping mechanisms and mentalities. Please.

Ok, really? Really? You rejecting them suggest that you had to fill out that application and send them that application fee, and then you had to reject it. Colleges don't just hand out free rides unless you apply for them, which means you had to actively try to get that free ride.

Or are you thinking that just because a school like Yale set you a little pamphlet that they totally wanted you?

Nevermind, that's an even more asinine idea, it's more likely you didn't get accepted anywhere than you actually applied to a bunch of colleges just to turn them down. And no, I'm not calling you turning down a free stupid, I'm calling the fact that you had to put in all of that work to get accepted with either the intention of turning it down, or decided afterwards you didn't want to do it.

No, it's definitely more believable that you didn't get accepted anywhere, and are now mad at the system. You trying to convince strangers on the internet that you're some mastermind is just your way of justifying it. "I don't need college, because I have a plan! Only it's in my head and I never wrote it down, but it totally exists!"

If our little back and forth hadn't already convinced me that you're full of ****, this would sure do it. Look at yourself, you're having the same conversation with half a dozen people using the same regurgitated pseudo-psychological words to sound smart.

So you either really are trolling, or you've got to be the world's most self deluded person on the entire internet. Pick one.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

Wrong.

I never even bothered applying, hell I never took the SAT. By rejection I mean I had the opportunity to have my college completely financed. The Uni would have been average but a Uni none the less.

I swear. I could have the same conversation with 10 different people 4 would go ape **** 4 would sympathize and 2 wouldn't really care. Everybody gets self righteous, but don't assume everyone reacts the way you do.

Both of us are full of ****, but I do think you're being unfair, especially when all of this sprung from assumptions you people had about me in the first place. My ambitions might be a bit insane, my mentalities a little delusional sure, but that doesn't mean I don't balance that out with an extremely grim outlook on reality and sense of impossibility. To sum it up; it doesn't mean I'm not going to succeed on my own terms. How far that goes is really up to chance, but I'm quite sure I'll get for others to see me as another boring member of society.

However I don't think I'll hit a cap that early. And this internet narcissism towards anyone and anybody isn't anything new. Defeatist attitudes consume the masses almost unregulated, and everybody is always pushing that attitude on everyone else.

If anything you and are on opposite ends of the spectrum. I have a deep hunger and a personality type quite adept at scheming. I don't believe in imminent failure. It's a game, and I have nothing to lose. Live, die. It doesn't matter, as long as I push as far as possible. Anything to further fulfill this void inside of me.

You people can assume all you want, throw me in with the other trash that might spout the similar words, but in the end, there is truth. I won't spout the arrogance saying that I am right and you are wrong, but I will say that I'm not someone to be made light of. I have a burning all consuming desire to attain more, and I'll do anything to meet those ends.

Then no, you did not reject a full ride because no college would have offered you a full ride. You're basing all of what you say on the assumption that they would, at best, which isn't true. My issue isn't with you accepting, or declining a full ride scholarship, my issue is that the full ride scholarship never existed. You have no basis for why you would have gotten one. You didn't even take the SAT, so you wouldn't have even been visible to any college.

You like to think yourself as this intellectual, but you're just saying words and shouting points that are easily disproven, yet your response to that is to either change what you meant, or claim that that's what you wanted all along, or some hybrid of the two. You're not an intellectual. It doesn't matter how much you say the word "interesting" or "curious" the point is you said some ******** and everyone's called you out on it, but you're too arrogant to realize that so you've convinced yourself that you wanted that all along. You wanted to see how people reacted? They thought you were retarded, and rightly so.

You were a moron to skip college. That's your final answer. The sooner you realize that, the better your chances of actually salvaging your failed choice at life and becoming an actual, productive member of society. You can go ahead and update funnyjunk on all of your meaningless achievements all you want, but all that's going to happen is everyone's going to say you're an idiot and you're going to keep shouting "YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND!" like someone stunted at 14. I know this because it's already happened here, through me, hawaiianhappysauce, salari, and several anons. I'm not doing this to try and make myself feel better, or overcompensate for some disability I have, I'm doing this because I'm faced with some 18 year old who didn't even take the SAT and thinks he's going to get anywhere. That's not how society works, it doesn't matter how much you say "yes it is".

We meet again Lolollo, did I mention whenever I read your name it comes out as WOLOLOOOOO.
This kid isn't in denial or anything. Every school has one of these people. They think they know everything and look down upon everyone else without proving why they themselves are superior. When the chips start falling down and everyone starts going to college, they say "I'm too smart for college" to hide the fact that they are butthurt for being unsuccessful. So he says he is going to approach his own goals, that's only going to work if you devote all your time into it, going on funnyjunk isn't going to contribute so we both know how this is going to end. He will find out that he made a mistake, start doing drugs to hide the pain, take up a job as a truck driver, spend the rest of his life telling people what his life could have been, marry someone who is fat, pick up smoking, go on food stamps, become a super liberal and claim that the successful people who went to college aren't paying enough in taxes to support his welfare, then get divorced because his fat unattractive wife was getting real tired of his ********, and live alone for the rest of his life. What you have in the end is white trash.

Just don't bother with him. We've tried to simply offer him a dose of reality to prepare him for when it inevitably crashes down on him, but he thinks he's the underdog protagonist in an anime who despite being downtrodden finds strength and success through montages. If his writing and half baked and completely incorrect psychological reasoning on here is anything to go by, I'm sure he'll have a very lucrative career writing spin-offs for the 50 Shades trilogy on his fan site.

When I was young, my best friend tried to kill me with a knife.
I've had my bones broken, and my muscles torn.
I've dealt with the psychological damage my parents took from third world countries.
I've lived around the world and seen a lot of interesting things.

This dose of reality you speak of is far more injected into me than most people.
Pat yourself on the back. Whatever makes you feel better, I'm tired of trying to reason with you people. I'm in a position to succeed because I don't care what it takes or even if my flesh is ripped apart and my life ends. I'm not stopping. I'll keep pushing, and honestly nothing is more enjoyable.

I expected more from you.
And it wasn't as scholarship but a G.I. bill. My grades were always average but my tests scores were consistently in the top tenth percentile. I didn't study much, which is why I don't think I would have scored low on something like the SAT. I'm not basing everything off of that, but if I really wanted to going wouldn't have been too hard. But I needed a break and I don't want the money for it to just be handed to me. Not by that father of mine. If I ever did go, it would be on my own. No one is allowed to say they are responsible for the success in my life but me. That's pretty hard headed, I'll admit.

Sadly, I'm a bit earnest at times. And entirely honest. To an extreme level. I saw this post on FJ, I thought I'd share a little. That is all. Some people responded, I answered. What people think is of no consequence. I regulate myself. I belittle myself. I keep a grip on reality. Still, to roll over and just accept common negative mentalities is pathetic. I don't care how right or wrong it is.

Oh so a few people on Funnyjunk say mean things and I'm supposed to be shaken up? You're not some level headed dude trying to correct someone, you're a prick run by ego, like most of us.

You keep saying "disproven" but all I see are misunderstandings and assumptions. All of which, by the way, are incredibly off base.

If I decide I want to I'd join the Airforce, that would supply me with 4 years of decent work and another G.I. bill for schooling. Basically, no matter what, I've thought things out. I'll take the risk now, because I have nothing at stake but my current meager existence.

There is more than one path to success. Society, humanity, history. Always changing, what is truth today was a lie yesterday. It's all a pathetic illusion. Unless you realize that, than yes, you are a bound to ultimate failure for straying from societies path.

My point still stands, the G.I. bill isn't a full ride to anywhere. At best you'd have gotten 75% of your tuition paid for and would have to come up with the other 25%. At best, you'd get 100% of your tuition paid for with the 100% tuition assistance program with the National Guard, but even then you'd have to actually be in the National Guard, and that doesn't even cover things like room and board, and food. So I say again, you're either trying to pull **** out of your ass, or so deluded by what you think you find.

Are you even in the national guard? What MOS are you? What unit are you with? What state are they centered out of? I'm guessing you're not, are you? It was more like "Well you can get this financial assistance, but you'd have to do all of this stuff first" and you were like "**** that" like you did with everything in High School. That's good, because basic training would've tore you apart.

But no, this is good. Go ahead and keep talking about military aspects so I can tear little holes into this as well. You can keep saying that you're not being proven an idiot who's talking out of your ass, that it's all because we're misunderstanding you, but the truth is you're just trying to pull anything that sounds smart that might prove your case.

You picked the wrong thing. I'm actually in the military, and go through the process of financial aid through them on a regular basis. You don't know **** about this.

I'm not pulling anything out of anywhere. You've made up your mind about me. You aren't going to change it.

You in the army? I'm talking about the Air Force, each branch has differing policies. And even 75% isn't that bad. Though I don't plan to rely on it. And as I said before, it doesn't matter if my flesh is torn apart. All that matters are the goals.


You haven't torn holes in anything, you haven't proven anything, you aren't the god of judgement, and the world doesn't owe you anything because of your hardships. All of this self gratification is sickening. I'll play the fool if I have to, but in the end, all that matters are results. Win or lose, and for all you know, you might die tomorrow.

Bro, if you're going to admit that you were wrong about something (the situation pertaining to the G.I. bill), then you don't get to say that I haven't proven anything of yours wrong. You've done that, literally, the entire conversation. When one thing doesn't work, you move on to the next. First, it was when we established that starting a vlog was going to be about as influential to society as a tissue hitting a car would total the car. Then, it was the fact that you were actually smart enough to get into any college you wanted despite not having done the SAT (it doesn't matter how confident you are in your SAT taking abilities, you didn't do it. End of story). Now, it's that you got a full ride to any college you would ever want despite the G.I. bill being nothing of the sort, and there being way better financial programs that you could've quoted (I gave you one).

So you can go ahead and keep talking about your plans for the military if you want, I'm just going to sit here confident that if you actually do, they're going to tear your ass apart. That's even with the air-force.

Whether you're serious or not about that decision, I win.

Sure sure, you've "deconstructed" me. "Winning?" Are you serious?

Implying this was ever a contest battle or struggle is why is stopped respected your opinion as a human being a while back. A few people, ten people, a hundred people; statistically speaking: it's all to be expected. The numbers don't matter. I never grasped, I just left out lots of information. I never focused on getting you to understand me; I focused on me getting to understand you. Not to say I didn't give a few attempts. It wasn't pointless, in part because of this pointless communication my self awareness levels have reached an all time high. At the same time it' give me a much clearer picture of people like you. I remain vastly unimpressed. I'm not going to insult you though. It's all so pointless. You aren't going to change. And you aren't going to change me. I'm going to succeed in my life, maybe not as far as I would like but enough that its respectable. At least I have the probability, I don't know, so I can't say that you don't have the same probabilities, but in in all likeliness, you don't. Not that it matters.

This is known as "projecting"

Basically you will never matter because you are too afraid to take the risk and/or too lazy to do the hard work. Or perhaps not, but in the end you know that you yourself will never amount to anything.

So you feel the need to look down on someone like me who decides to do the impossible anyway. Despite the naysayers and all the hate

That's not "projecting". And do you really think you'll ever matter by setting up a business or vlogging? I'll answer that for you: no, you won't. And how can you possibly say that this guy has amounted to nothing? You don't know him, I don't know him. People don't look down on you for your aspirations (which, by the way, setting up a business isn't impossible, any monkey in a suit with good credit can set up a business), people look down on you because you actually think you're better than others for not having gone through higher education, and being so self assured that you're going to find success.

You forget that none of the negative comments here know me either, so thats a pretty redundant statement... basically calling everyone hypocrites. I don't think I'm better, I was just sharing my story. People take offense; usually because it conflicts with their own life choices/views.

Those are just the begging of my plans; child's play compared to the things I'm working towards. I have little confidence, but if I don't have faith in myself no one else will.

Of course. Failure is eminent. But if you let failure keep you down you are never going to succeed. It's a cliche, and why? Because it's ******* true.

To insult my English the very sum of the stupidity I'm responding to only for the fact I have a taste for human psychology. I'm really trying to understand you people here, and by mirroring your negativity perhaps I'll learn something.

Your first mistake was assuming I was some naive idiot who didn't know the meaning of a life of despair, failure, or utter devastating struggle.

Great things only come from hell. I've lived in it long enough to know what needs to be done. So let me demoralize you and a few others a little more: Trash is trash and I need not say anything other than you are responsible for your own short comings.

Not mine. Yours.

Yeah, work on that grammar and spelling. And at least attempt to make sense. Then again, with that much delusion, I'm sure you can get by. You brought on hostility by acting self-righteous and lacking humility.

Also, if you're going to claim to have a "taste" in psychology (wrong choice of words, by the way), at least be correct, what you defined there wasn't projecting, it was transgression, two incredibly basic principles of psychology, which you'd know if you had as much of a "taste" in it as you claim.

My English is pretty advanced, I just don't feel the need to waste using it on a website such as this.

It all makes sense. I leave out some assumptions you should be able to figure out on your own but apparently I expect too much.

If I'm being self righteous it's after the fact, I lack humility in the fact I won't allow myself to be insulted by people, especially when the source of those reactions are so petty.

I have a taste for the human psyche is better choice of words relative to your minds contstruct.
The kind of projection I'm talking about comes from that deep within, often what you do not realize yourself.
Like the fact you believe yourself to be so much more intelligent than I. It doesn't get more self righteous than that, and in the end all you were doing from the start was trying to obtain some basic self gratification.

You see. People feel the need to attack something for a variety of reasons, in this case, part of it has to do with issues within yourself, not issue as in post traumatic stress, but issues as in an inherent need to correct lead or be superior, the other was thinking your anger merits talking down to someone as you have.

Normally, I'm assuming you accomplish your task. You "win" the argument, but as the saying goes you eventually meet your match. But of course as I say that you think the opposite of me. "This person is stupid, wrong, etc." Leading to a feedback loop. No matter how much I try to reason with you, it won't work. On the other hand, I do hope to demoralize you a little bit since you've pissed me off by being a hypocrite and attempting to demoralize me first.

I don't need to mention how little sleep I've gotten how pointless it is to make light of someone else's hard work and efforts, but I will anyway.

I might have appreciated your initial preaching, but it came off stinking of self disappointment and pity. If I've humored anyone; it was for my own amusement. I won't fail, because I won't allow myself to be stopped.

And once again, that's NOT projection. You know NOTHING of the individual to deem it as projection, you're just assuming like some kind of asshole who thinks that because someone's questioning you and your decisions, that there automatically must be something wrong with them. Do you even realise how arrogant and insulting that is? To think that you have someone figured out by a brief exchange?

Pull your head out of your ass, get off your ******* high horse, and maybe people will stop talking to you like you're a ******* prick, because the only reason you're getting spoken to like that is because you're ACTING like a ******* prick.

And don't act like you're smarter than me. Throughout this exchange you've proved that on nearly every level you're intellectually deficient in fields you claim to have some interest in. Take the advice of me and others, and grow the **** up, and actually learn some ****.

People don't look down on you for not having gone to college, people look down on you because think you're smart, but you're distinctly ******* average.

If you're going to try and quote psychology, at least go to school for it.  Lemme guess, you got that in high school level sociology?  It was taught by the English teacher, wasn't it?   
   
And in the very least don't do it to a psych major who knows you're only talking out the ass as a way to try and make me asshurt.     
   
Have a nice day.

Human observation is the pinnacle of learning:

The human psyche can be consumed through basic human interaction of all kinds.

Your blatant offhanded insult to me to begin with is what made me revel.
At any rate, I don't think I need to rustle you: You are likely a rustled person to begin with.

Good luck with your life. I'm allergic to ********. And you have severely underestimated me.

You're so cute when you're trying to troll.   
   
What you don't realize is that, with Psychology, human nature is given in general trends, not absolutes.  You're basing the fact that I'm rustled on an assumption that I'm rustled.  I know that you have that lingering doubt that I might just be sitting here, replying to your comments between filling out subway surveys as I would any other reply to someone I'm conversing with.     
   
You can keep saying that you've rustled my jimmies, but we both know the truth in this situation...or is that just me?

That's not really what I meant. I meant as a person you were rustled a long time ago and it made you moot.

The "idgaf" type isn't exactly... uncommon. In fact I've seen on this site alone many a time. I don't really feel anything other than a light since of enjoyment and amusement as I reply or converse, so it's not like I'm entirely emotionally motivated.

That being said people like you bother me. To be so easily content and satisfied. Doesn't sit well with me. I have too much ambition. And not that you might care or understand this; but people tend to care about things sometimes. I care deeply for my goals and the whole point is to eventually make a large impact on society. For you, or anyone to make light of that, is a bit upsetting. I also have too much personal interest in people. I tend to be hypersensitive to those sorts of things.


At the very least it's interesting seeing how people respond when I decide to ramble.

You don't think that's such a blanket term to use, though?  That "at some point in your life, something bad happened!"  You're not writing horoscopes here bro.  Of course "something bad happened in my life in the past" but whether or not it was actually as influential as you're trying to say it is is completely up for debate.  Besides, my life has been full of "bad happenings".  I'd tell you them all and tell you to "pick one", but I can't even remember them all.  That's a weak argument at best, dude.   
   
As far as you being irked by my finding enjoyment in things so easily...even that's flawed.  Finding enjoyment out of "too many things" doesn't equate to "lack of ambition".  If I lacked ambition, I wouldn't be 8 hours away from my family in college, or even in the military.  I try to find enjoyment out of anything I come across because...well...why the **** not?   
   
Anyway, I got things to meet and people to do.  We'll have to pick this up when I get back.  I'd not go...but how else am I to prove you wrong that I have ambition?

Don't get me wrong. I agree with you on many accounts. I'm just trying saying your empathy was a little mean to begin with.

My ambitions are too grandiose to mention and they aren't for myself. I don't want to become successful because I want things for myself. I want to become successful so that I can hopefully do some good in the world and do good for mankind, anything else is a bonus.

In the end it just pisses me off you and others would say things so needless. Those that judge best be prepared to be judged, or something like that. And I know I assumed you were the product of experience and not thats just who you are, but for the most part thats usually the case.


I am curious though. What drives you to determine what reality will be?

And don't tell me it's just being "realistic" or living in the "real world". What I'm asking is why you must define whats possible for me so rigidly. Because of "probably" right? but probably isn't always the actuality. And I think thats a fair enough argument at this point.

Brojito...you're hoping to publish a couple of books and start up a vlog. If doing "some good in the world and do good for mankind" is your true cause, then you're doing it wrong. You're not even going to become the next Socrates if you're hoping to write some philosophical book because Socrates only got famous from being the first one to do such a thing. You want to know why people scoff when you tell them your dreams and goals? It's because you honestly think that what you want to do would actually achieve what you're hoping it does. It sucks, but welcome to the real world.

As for what I define the real world to be, I don't define the real world. It's already defined, and has been for billions of years. Who are you and I to define it?

This is why I have trouble taking you seriously. I didn't lay down my grand master plan, I just mentioned some short term goals. Most of which have nothing to do with my bigger plans.

The real world has been around for billions of years: but we haven't. And humans constantly define everything. Perception is a bitch.

Not everyone scoffs at me to be clear, but those that do I find to be... hm. Interesting to say the least.

People keep asking me about it but honestly I'm neither in the mood nor have the energy to seriously lay it out for you. All I can say is that as far as master plans go; it's pretty damn brilliant. Lots of variables and branches to it, since nothing goes as planned anyway. The good thing about it is that even if I hit my limits the results of the progression remain.

If your really that curious I can tell you that it incorporates everything about human behavior, success in modern day society, monopoly, influence, politics, geopolitics, economy, technology and culture. Though it might not be as grandiose as I make it sound I've really put a lot of thought and time into it.

If you want. I'll PM you the entire thing, I've never really written it down before since I keep it "all up here" but perhaps you can satisfy your curiosity/share your own thoughts.

I'll even cross reference it with your impressive list of **** it incorporates just to see how accurate it is.

Also, I want the whole thing. Then you can't come back and say "Well I didn't tell you everything." If you do, it'll just confirm the idea that you really don't know anything about what you're doing, that you're just another high school graduate who couldn't deal with college and is pissed at the world for it.

I'm guessing your plan doesn't even go past starting up some ****** vlog, does it?

You're forgetting something. People want to learn things, which other people will know of course, so they can use that knowledge to help others or gain more knowledge that no one else knows. Example: I plan to become a historian, maybe own a museum or at least work in one and if I get the chance, I will go and do archaeology and **** like that, so I can uncover more history to share with the world.

And you, OP, are telling me that because I have to learn things to uncover new things, I'm stupid? Everyone, the greatest inventors and scientists in the world had to learn their **** from somewhere in order to BECOME so great, but since they learned things that other people already knew, they are stupid according to this logic.

TL;DR, stop this ****.
