Fixing the problem means you have no problem though. I'm not saying by "getting over" depression, the person is no longer sad or does not occasionally become upset over this issue, I'm saying it does not become a long withstanding problem like depression is.

Part of depression is a loss of motivation, and I didn't care much what a dude on the internet thought anyways.

Actually my face has more of a bemused expression. I'm trying very hard to understand exactly how someone couldn't have motivation to improve their own life, and so far the only real argument given is "But I just don't feel like it, I don't have the energy, it's too hard".

I do like debating, but it's not as if I ENJOY being the asshole of the group, and in many of my comments you can see me desperately trying to grasp exactly what the other person means (and in a few cases, congratulating them for making a good example), it's not as if I'm not trying to understand.

This is why people don't expect you to understand; because you haven't experienced it first-hand.

I respect you as an individual, but I think that you're wrong, and I doubt that we'll come to a consensus here.
How about we just end this conversation and go our seperate ways, rather than bang on about what we think and feel?

You don't know that. That's why I'm astounded by the hypocrisy of people on this picture, because they constantly talk about how it's impossible for someone to understand, then immediately turn and talk as if they understand the experience of every person around them.

Very well, that seems the most reasonable. Have a good day sir, and enjoy the rest of your life.

People with depression just can't get that motivation to try. Yes effort breeds results, but getting that effort is the hard part. But people with depression just can't. You seem to think that depressed people can just do it if they want to but a lot of them don't see themselves ever getting better, if you don't think it will work then why try? It is a vicious cycle and a truly sad one.

And yes, the idea of being happy would motivate people to do better. Like people who are overweight and think that being thinner would make them happier, they then go out and lose weight. Or people who want to learn another language. But depression works a little different, it plays on your mind and tells you that you can never get better, than you are useless and can't do anything, and that you aren't worth it, that being happy is beyond you and that you deserve to be unhappy. People who are depressed can't see a way out a lot of the time. I think this is the part that you don't understand

Yes effort breeds results.
The idea of being happier does create motivation.
People with depression can't see this. It isn't obvious to them and when the light is shone on them, they see it as out of reach. They don't try because it seems pointless. That is where the problem lies, low self esteem and seeing themselves as unworthy.

I resisted and fought help for a long time because I thought it was a waste of time. Pills were the easiest thing (I live in the UK so they are free) but they made me feel worse. I puked, got no sleep and so on.

I didn't think anyone could help, people kept telling me to do things but getting anywhere good just seemed so far out of my reach, like this was who I was and there was no point in changing, that I couldn't change. I just took a real forceful push to get me to where i needed to be.

Don't just tell someone "You have to put effort in" because they just can't see it. you really have to push them into the first step or it never gets taken.

Depression turned me from being some super happy kid who could never be brought down into an apathetic bastard who has taken a knife to his neck multiple times just because he was bored and felt like seeing some blood.

Unless you can say that human nature is black and white (which it absolutely isn't, otherwise true communism and true capitalism would have worked), you can't say that mental problems like depression are as well. Even coming from my own completely cynical point of view I can tell this fact.

And if we go back to my argument about the common cold, you said that we don't have a cure for it because its always evolving. Well, if that can constantly change, then why can't depression and every other complex mental illness?

You're putting words in my mouth. I said if you can get rid of your depression easily, then it probably wasn't serious. If it takes serious effort, it's a whole different thing.

However "fake depressions" can actually bolster the effects of real ones, which is a real pain in the ass.

Also, that was a long time ago, I've learned how to successfully shut it out now, I've managed it, but some people have a much more severe problem.
User avatar #247 - captainfuckitall (11/08/2013) [-]
Perhaps, and I apologize for that, but it's not as if I was incorrect. It seems many people are judging a level of suffering based upon how easy it is to deal with, which would mean that a child experiencing the death of his parents is less traumatizing than a tween losing her cell-phone if the aforementioned child happens to handle it better.

I'm glad you've had success in this endeavour, and I certainly hope it never comes back to haunt you. If you ever need to talk, feel free to find me and I will be glad to be your friend.

I don't need to admit ignorance here since, as someone with severe clinical depression, I actually know what I am talking about. You're an uneducated person from the outside looking in.

Yeah, of course it is - usually.

What I thought you meant was that kind of retarded "Well, the world is your oyster. Climb a mountain and you'll get better, Bro."-stuff.

However, doing something is difficult in that particular state of mind, just as it's difficult to move on broken legs.
Your self-esteem plummets, and you avoid getting help, because you think that your condition is somehow less serious than somebody else's, and you don't want to waste anybody's time.

I understand that you feel that one should do something, but it's that very thing which is impossible for most people with depression.
Your reasoning is sound, were it not for the human factor.
User avatar #234 - captainfuckitall (11/08/2013) [-]
Ya, that's what everyone thinks I'm saying...

But then you're still just doing it to yourself, that doesn't change the issue. I understand it's difficult to move on broken legs, but surely you don't just say "No, I'm not going to try and move or heal them at all" and just sit there. I understand that many people do try to help themselves, but in the end they just bandage their arm instead; there are many reasons that one might have Depression, and addressing only one or two of them is sure to fail.

Mm, if you say so.

If your truly understood, then you wouldn't be getting so many thumbs down. I have read your other comments....

you have said that there are new drugs coming out, this is true but no guarantee that they will work, and sometimes the side effects can be worse. Like suicidal thoughts.

The term "effort breeds content" is exactly what depressed people don't want to hear, it is another "if you try you will get better" and while this is half true it doesn't address the problem directly. For starters it is very hard to get motivation.

A good simile for this i read once is this (not exact quoting)
Depression is like being in a fast flowing river, with uneven ground and you are trying to reach the top. Each step is hard and you often find yourself stuck and clinging to a rock or branch to stay afloat. You see others passing you with ease saying "go on, it's not hard" or "just put your back into it" and then passing on without a helping hand, and so you stay stuck in the river, unable to move and watching everyone else pass you.

Depression is near impossible to get out of on your own, you need someone there to help. The reason for this is that your motivation is sapped and you really can't start something for yourself, that or you just see no point in doing so, and having someone there to push you forwards rather than just telling you to do it yourself is the key.

I can see what you are saying, but just one thing you need to see. Mental disorders never go away, but they can be made easier. In my case i have my councilor who i check up with once a week but what i didn't say was that it took someone close to me to address that i was suffering internally and made me go and see her.

For a long time i resisted.

I asked my friend for a lift to the post office and instead of taking me to where i wanted to be she took me to the councilor.

I still have depression, but it is much easier to deal with now and I would never have done it without a real kick up my arse.

Thumbs aren't for understanding, they're for opinions. The fact I'm thumbed down doesn't so much mean that I don't understand, it just means that what I have to say isn't popular; saying I'm wrong because of my red thumbs is like saying someone on the playground doesn't deserve happiness because most people bully him. You see?

Obviously not, otherwise I wouldn't have to reaffirm much of what I've already said. I could literally begin copy-pasting arguments just out of past things I've said at this point.

Yes, because Depressed people aren't having suicidal thoughts already... In any case, I've already talked about this too, and have already affirmed that any type of side-effect is worth it if it gives you life or peace of mind, after that it is just a matter of opinions. Just as well, it's true that having new ones come out isn't a guarantee they will work, but it does increase the likelihood that there is something for you.

Okay, so now you're saying that I'm wrong because you don't want to try. Alright then... In any case, yes, if you try, things get done, this is a common rule of life, effort breeds results. You're right, it doesn't; I apologize for placing my trust in people that they understand themselves on a personal level better than I do, and would know what makes them happy and seek that out. How so? Again, this is what I've been having trouble understanding; to me, the very IDEA of being content and happy is enough to motivate me.

And then you scorn them and say they must not understand, right? In any case, they've given you plenty of helping hands; self help groups, pills, systems, boards and forums, doctors, psychiatrists, and even personal things like what you enjoy, friends, and family. The problem is that many people who are Depressed don't see a point, and just try one of these things and give up for dead.

Actually. I have tried to do something about it. Once I came off the drugs because they didn't work i went to see a councilor. Who actually understands how people with depression feel and how to handle it.

She took me a few steps on how to deal with it. Depression isn't something that vanishes but it can be made to be easier to cope with, and coping is a little different for everyone. Some harm themselves because the feeling of emotional numbness is broken by the stimulation of pain and the following releasing of endorphins into the system.

Some people it is destruction, taking control of something in a powerful way but sadly these are destructive means to something that can be helped in other ways. For me it was exercise, i felt useless, and unwanted and ugly and like i couldn't do something or be good at something and i was told to excersise, and i did. Every other day i do a routine and each time i can do it for a little longer which gives me a rather good sense of achievment. When i feel down i run or do jumps, just pushing myself to do something active. A few times though i have felt just too shoddy to even do it, which is where relapse can happen, where you just feel a sense of "what's the point?" and stop... which is where you need someone else to help, rather than handing you another potato and saying "pfft get over it already" you need someone to hand you a peeler, and go through it WITH you.

Depression is very real
I guess depression is a little like being colour blind, you can't really understand it unless you have it.

User avatar #215 - captainfuckitall (11/08/2013) [-]
Well first off, none of what I posted in my reply was genuine, I was just angry.

I'm sorry about that. Please excuse my outburst and my immaturity for that brief period.

I assure you I believe none of what I posted below, but I am simply so frustrated and tired of explaining myself over, and over, and over. It seems that most of the hate I am acquiring here is not because of what I said, but because of what people THINK I said, and every second person seems to be trying so hard to put words into my mouth that you can see the strain they put into their arm.

As a genuine reply... No, I was not saying that at all, what I was saying was that effort breeds results (for the fifth time), and that it is better to try and make your circumstances better than complain of how they are not.

I'm well aware Depression is a disorder, as I have stated it in many comments multiple times, I am aware that some drugs don't work, I have explained why this was (that it was not caused by a chemical imbalance, I.E. something the drug was meant to fix), and in the off-chance it is NOT caused by attitude or mood, I am sure in my faith that there absolutely is something to help, some type of pill or system.

Perhaps I am to blame for being more rational for emotional, but I never realized why people let silly things bother-them. I know what over-thinking can do to a person, but surely this behaviour is not over-thinking. I fully admit this is something I do not understand, although I would surely like to.

Have you considered that your problems are not caused by a chemical imbalance, but rather, your circumstances?

You're right, such an action is awful and is why I'm against it. I do have an understanding on the subject, thank you; I am well acquainted with suffering, pain, sorrow, and crippling sadness, and more-so I am aware of what people with Depression go through. It's cute that so many people tell me I cannot understand, yet insist they understand the feelings of others themselves.

Well why? Why did you put up such a fight?

People with depression just can't get that motivation to try. Yes effort breeds results, but getting that effort is the hard part. But people with depression just can't. You seem to think that depressed people can just do it if they want to but a lot of them don't see themselves ever getting better, if you don't think it will work then why try? It is a vicious cycle and a truly sad one.

And yes, the idea of being happy would motivate people to do better. Like people who are overweight and think that being thinner would make them happier, they then go out and lose weight. Or people who want to learn another language. But depression works a little different, it plays on your mind and tells you that you can never get better, than you are useless and can't do anything, and that you aren't worth it, that being happy is beyond you and that you deserve to be unhappy. People who are depressed can't see a way out a lot of the time. I think this is the part that you don't understand

Yes effort breeds results.
The idea of being happier does create motivation.
People with depression can't see this. It isn't obvious to them and when the light is shone on them, they see it as out of reach. They don't try because it seems pointless. That is where the problem lies, low self esteem and seeing themselves as unworthy.

I resisted and fought help for a long time because I thought it was a waste of time. Pills were the easiest thing (I live in the UK so they are free) but they made me feel worse. I puked, got no sleep and so on.

I didn't think anyone could help, people kept telling me to do things but getting anywhere good just seemed so far out of my reach, like this was who I was and there was no point in changing, that I couldn't change. I just took a real forceful push to get me to where i needed to be.

Don't just tell someone "You have to put effort in" because they just can't see it. you really have to push them into the first step or it never gets taken.

So you are basically saying "IT IS YOUR FAULT YOU HAVE DEPRESSION BECAUSE YOU AREN'T DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT, GET BETTER ALREADY, GOD!" which is what people with depression get all.the.time.

Depression is a disorder, sometimes the drugs don't work and in some cases they make you feel worse and it isn't always about what it in your life. Sadly Depression can just happen even if your life is great or not, it can pop up even if you feel like it shouldn't be happening.

I have had depression for a while, it isn't like it is always there. I can be happy a lot of the time, playing games and what not and then at some point during the day i start to feel down... and it doesn't get better and i just feel drained and tired, lacking the enthusiasm to eat or watch tv, play a game or go outside for a walk, I don't want to do anything and my lack of motivation gets frustraiting, like i want to be interested but just can't and i end up walking around the house for a while, then it gets worse and i start feeling like i can't do anything right, like i am useless and that because i have such little impact on the world no one will miss me when i am gone, and i start thinking about how much easier it would be on everyone else that i didn't exist... then i cry for a while and go to sleep if i can. Sometimes feel better the next day but this can go on for a few days, any little thing could set me off crying again. I remember once i dropped the lid to a jar of jam and that made me cry... for really no reason and it felt stupid to cry and something so small... but i did anyway. You know you are being silly, but you can't stop it.

I tried taking medication, but it actually made me feel a hell of a lot worse, it would make me vomit and tired, didn't want to get out of bed and it made my depression worse and last weeks rather than just a few hours/days.

Wallowing in self pity is an awful way to do it, you have no understanding on the subject and what people with depression go through.
User avatar #209 - captainfuckitall (11/08/2013) [-]
...Yes, yes that is exactly what I am saying. Everyone who has Depression is just a weak pathetic loser, and I am an ignorant asshole that you can feel superior over as you go to sleep.

Depression is not a disorder, it isn't even real, all drugs are bad, but they never make you feel worse and are in fact good, I'm just stupid because I'm conservative. Legalize it.

You don't have Depression, Depression isn't real, none of this is real, we all just live in a Matrix world, a Matrix world where apparently people substitute what I'm actually saying for what they want me to say.

You didn't try anything, you just did nothing, you dirty dirty hippie.

Wallowing in self-pity is awful, except when I do it, then I'm deep and misunderstood. You're right, I don't understand a single thing that a master like yourself can comprehend, but I'm still gonna think I'm better than you and I'm too stupid to listen.
#212 - Lacuna (11/08/2013) [-]
Actually. I have tried to do something about it. Once I came off the drugs because they didn't work i went to see a councilor. Who actually understands how people with depression feel and how to handle it.

She took me a few steps on how to deal with it. Depression isn't something that vanishes but it can be made to be easier to cope with, and coping is a little different for everyone. Some harm themselves because the feeling of emotional numbness is broken by the stimulation of pain and the following releasing of endorphins into the system.

Some people it is destruction, taking control of something in a powerful way but sadly these are destructive means to something that can be helped in other ways. For me it was exercise, i felt useless, and unwanted and ugly and like i couldn't do something or be good at something and i was told to excersise, and i did. Every other day i do a routine and each time i can do it for a little longer which gives me a rather good sense of achievment. When i feel down i run or do jumps, just pushing myself to do something active. A few times though i have felt just too shoddy to even do it, which is where relapse can happen, where you just feel a sense of "what's the point?" and stop... which is where you need someone else to help, rather than handing you another potato and saying "pfft get over it already" you need someone to hand you a peeler, and go through it WITH you.

Depression is very real
I guess depression is a little like being colour blind, you can't really understand it unless you have it.

Sorry, *Posted in reply to you for the first time
User avatar #215 - captainfuckitall (11/08/2013) [-]
Well first off, none of what I posted in my reply was genuine, I was just angry.

I'm sorry about that. Please excuse my outburst and my immaturity for that brief period.

I assure you I believe none of what I posted below, but I am simply so frustrated and tired of explaining myself over, and over, and over. It seems that most of the hate I am acquiring here is not because of what I said, but because of what people THINK I said, and every second person seems to be trying so hard to put words into my mouth that you can see the strain they put into their arm.

As a genuine reply... No, I was not saying that at all, what I was saying was that effort breeds results (for the fifth time), and that it is better to try and make your circumstances better than complain of how they are not.

I'm well aware Depression is a disorder, as I have stated it in many comments multiple times, I am aware that some drugs don't work, I have explained why this was (that it was not caused by a chemical imbalance, I.E. something the drug was meant to fix), and in the off-chance it is NOT caused by attitude or mood, I am sure in my faith that there absolutely is something to help, some type of pill or system.

Perhaps I am to blame for being more rational for emotional, but I never realized why people let silly things bother-them. I know what over-thinking can do to a person, but surely this behaviour is not over-thinking. I fully admit this is something I do not understand, although I would surely like to.

Have you considered that your problems are not caused by a chemical imbalance, but rather, your circumstances?

You're right, such an action is awful and is why I'm against it. I do have an understanding on the subject, thank you; I am well acquainted with suffering, pain, sorrow, and crippling sadness, and more-so I am aware of what people with Depression go through. It's cute that so many people tell me I cannot understand, yet insist they understand the feelings of others themselves.

User avatar #232 - captainfuckitall (11/08/2013) [-]
Well yes, that's really what you DO when you debate or have an opinion.

Well ya, how else would I get any type of point across. "I think it works like this, oh wait, it doesn't? Sorry, nevermind, I completely changed my views". I'm not a Wikipedia, I believe it works in a Black-And-White sense, and so far every piece of evidence that it doesn't has only been how people feel about it, even that guy studying to be a pharmacist. Really, me claiming to know about this is no different than them claiming they know about the experience of EVERYONE who's ever suffered from it. Furthermore, of course I will refuse to accept what someone is saying if I disagree with it, because in the end we're only throwing opinions at eachother; if they produced evidence or even a logical argument as to why it does NOT work in such a way, I would change my views.
User avatar #254 - hydraetis (11/09/2013) [-]
Depression turned me from being some super happy kid who could never be brought down into an apathetic bastard who has taken a knife to his neck multiple times just because he was bored and felt like seeing some blood.

Unless you can say that human nature is black and white (which it absolutely isn't, otherwise true communism and true capitalism would have worked), you can't say that mental problems like depression are as well. Even coming from my own completely cynical point of view I can tell this fact.

And if we go back to my argument about the common cold, you said that we don't have a cure for it because its always evolving. Well, if that can constantly change, then why can't depression and every other complex mental illness?
#217 - Lacuna (11/08/2013) [-]
If your truly understood, then you wouldn't be getting so many thumbs down. I have read your other comments....

you have said that there are new drugs coming out, this is true but no guarantee that they will work, and sometimes the side effects can be worse. Like suicidal thoughts.

The term "effort breeds content" is exactly what depressed people don't want to hear, it is another "if you try you will get better" and while this is half true it doesn't address the problem directly. For starters it is very hard to get motivation.

A good simile for this i read once is this (not exact quoting)
Depression is like being in a fast flowing river, with uneven ground and you are trying to reach the top. Each step is hard and you often find yourself stuck and clinging to a rock or branch to stay afloat. You see others passing you with ease saying "go on, it's not hard" or "just put your back into it" and then passing on without a helping hand, and so you stay stuck in the river, unable to move and watching everyone else pass you.

Depression is near impossible to get out of on your own, you need someone there to help. The reason for this is that your motivation is sapped and you really can't start something for yourself, that or you just see no point in doing so, and having someone there to push you forwards rather than just telling you to do it yourself is the key.

I can see what you are saying, but just one thing you need to see. Mental disorders never go away, but they can be made easier. In my case i have my councilor who i check up with once a week but what i didn't say was that it took someone close to me to address that i was suffering internally and made me go and see her.

For a long time i resisted.

I asked my friend for a lift to the post office and instead of taking me to where i wanted to be she took me to the councilor.

I still have depression, but it is much easier to deal with now and I would never have done it without a real kick up my arse.

Thumbs aren't for understanding, they're for opinions. The fact I'm thumbed down doesn't so much mean that I don't understand, it just means that what I have to say isn't popular; saying I'm wrong because of my red thumbs is like saying someone on the playground doesn't deserve happiness because most people bully him. You see?

Obviously not, otherwise I wouldn't have to reaffirm much of what I've already said. I could literally begin copy-pasting arguments just out of past things I've said at this point.

Yes, because Depressed people aren't having suicidal thoughts already... In any case, I've already talked about this too, and have already affirmed that any type of side-effect is worth it if it gives you life or peace of mind, after that it is just a matter of opinions. Just as well, it's true that having new ones come out isn't a guarantee they will work, but it does increase the likelihood that there is something for you.

Okay, so now you're saying that I'm wrong because you don't want to try. Alright then... In any case, yes, if you try, things get done, this is a common rule of life, effort breeds results. You're right, it doesn't; I apologize for placing my trust in people that they understand themselves on a personal level better than I do, and would know what makes them happy and seek that out. How so? Again, this is what I've been having trouble understanding; to me, the very IDEA of being content and happy is enough to motivate me.

And then you scorn them and say they must not understand, right? In any case, they've given you plenty of helping hands; self help groups, pills, systems, boards and forums, doctors, psychiatrists, and even personal things like what you enjoy, friends, and family. The problem is that many people who are Depressed don't see a point, and just try one of these things and give up for dead.

Well, in that case, I would like to become your friend. Perhaps we can help eachother.

#194 - That's nice, although I didn't ask. Your personal struggles do… 11/08/2013 on feels right -1

I thought I'd waste some time also, and FIX yo' thumbs ;)

Man, I think I love you
Man, I think I love you

Haha, where the hell did that come from?
User avatar #507 to #506 - thediablo (01/26/2015) [-]
I saw that kind of argument that you had and I liked not only what you said but the way you said it, I think you did it pretty cool and everything

if you meant the gif it's from Soul Eater
User avatar #508 to #507 - captainfuckitall (01/26/2015) [-]
That's the first time I heard that. Generally, my abrasive and blunt speech drives most people to dislike me, not give me affection. You're a sweetheart, though.

Haha, no, I did not mean the gif.
User avatar #509 to #508 - thediablo (01/26/2015) [-]
I feel the same way about myself, I have to say that if those speeches were used against me I would feel a little bit upset, but you ask for clear answers and sources, and you try to make the other person think before they speak, I like that in general, not just mindless bashing ahaha
User avatar #510 to #509 - captainfuckitall (01/26/2015) [-]
Well I'm certainly glad you can see the good in my speaking skills. Frankly, I do it to get to the point. I hate having my time wasted for any reason, and so I extend that courtesy to others and try not to waste anyone else's time either; which leads me to being very blunt and brutal in my words so that they cannot be confused or misheard. Though I admit I was frustrated in that debate.
User avatar #511 to #510 - thediablo (01/26/2015) [-]
most of them are frustrating anyway

and yeah, it sucks when people start to get offtrack because of a single comment that you used as an example or something, it's proof that they are desperately trying to derail the conversation to their favor
User avatar #512 to #511 - captainfuckitall (01/26/2015) [-]
Oh well. When you get into a debate with someone, the point should be because you are trying to change your own views, not theirs.

If someone doesn't want to believe something, they won't. End of story. You could use all the proof you want to tell someone the colour of the sky is blue, but if they want it to be green, it will be and there's nothing you can do to stop it.

Thus, the only person you should be focused on changing in a debate is yourself, and only do so to get more perspective on the issues important to you.

User avatar #499 to #495 - aurumleo (01/08/2015) [-]
Who's the artist? Sauce?
User avatar #500 to #499 - miia ONLINE (01/08/2015) [-]

#501 to #500 - aurumleo (01/08/2015) [-]
I found it! The artist's nukomasu. Thanks, Miia. If it weren't for that image, I won't find it.
User avatar #496 to #495 - captainfuckitall (12/13/2014) [-]
Well don't let me keep you. Hi back, and feel free to continue the conversation any time.
User avatar #503 to #502 - captainfuckitall (01/09/2015) [-]
Hello again.
#504 to #503 - miia ONLINE (01/09/2015) [-]
hello

i am exhausted
User avatar #490 - commencingfailure ONLINE (09/30/2014) [-]
******* retard compares the IS to today's feminists. One could say ignorance is an everspreading cancer, you did your job to increase the spread.
User avatar #491 to #490 - captainfuckitall (09/30/2014) [-]
You seem REALLY mad, friend. Perhaps you should calm down and take some ass ointment before you need to see a doctor
User avatar #489 - myfourthaccount (07/18/2014) [-]
dude, you're like my most favorite person on earth right now haha
User avatar #487 - imvlad (05/04/2014) [-]
you brought shame to your house
User avatar #483 - aerosol ONLINE (04/22/2014) [-]
Have you by chance had an older account here before?
User avatar #484 to #483 - captainfuckitall (04/22/2014) [-]
Yes I have. My first username was Hiimquinn, but it was deleted for some reason I never found, so I just made another.
#485 to #484 - aerosol ONLINE (04/22/2014) [-]
Oh. Never mind then. I saw someone call you Dave and I mistook you for someone else.
User avatar #486 to #485 - captainfuckitall (04/22/2014) [-]
It's fine. It was a joke from a picture a while back where a man was looking out the window and saw a dog and his owner walking down the street. The dog barked at another, bigger dog, and his owner just turned and said "See, this is why you have no ******* mates, Dave".
User avatar #481 - iforgotmyothername (03/20/2014) [-]
you are one cool tempered potato compared to me, bringing my fury upon your wrongness. i salute you, and thumbed up all your comments in the a capella debate.
User avatar #482 to #481 - captainfuckitall (03/20/2014) [-]
It's alright, I apologize for making you upset, but you don't need to thumb my posts up. Thumbs are a way to express positivity or negativity toward any type of comments; if you do not like them, it is perfectly within your right to thumb them down.
User avatar #474 - aherorising (11/20/2013) [-]
you're a really cool bro
#471 - shiifter (10/06/2013) [-]
This still makes me giggle.

Oh and by the way, i never actually thumbed you down. I just said that i did.
User avatar #472 to #471 - captainfuckitall (10/06/2013) [-]
The thing is, the way I found OUT you gave me those thumbs was because of the question mark, which allows people to see who voted on content. I could only KNOW it was you if you had thumbed them down, which you did.

And now you not only prove to be an idiot, but a liar as well.
#473 to #472 - shiifter (10/12/2013) [-]
Wait? You still remembered that? That's hilarious.

By the way, i screencapped this. it's like a trophy.
User avatar #468 - satrenkotheone (09/22/2013) [-]
I would just like to say thank you.
#466 - anonexplains (08/25/2013) [-]
Due to your pointlessly rude comment on the post "Jesus ain't got time for **** ",

I have gone through 20 of your previous comments and thumbed them all down.

You're also a stupid, unfunny, tryhard feelfag. Exactly the kind of user that this site is infamous for.
User avatar #467 to #466 - captainfuckitall (08/25/2013) [-]
I wasn't pointlessly rude. If you read it more carefully, you would find I am not insulting your god or faith, but rather, the people who spread it about; and even they are just doing it to themselves, while I am mearly making an observation

It's ironic you call me tryhard, considering you just went through the time to thumb-down my last 20 comments as if it would have any effect on me personally or my ranking here. It's also odd you call me stupid, considering you were the one who read it uncorrectly. And I think the fact I have so many comment thumbs anyways (including my own jesus comment) speaks to the point that I am, in fact, quite hilarious. "Feelfag", is that supposed to be a derogatory term for someone who is passionate about certain things? If so, then I take pride in it, as it is only through passion that things grow.

Considering you are pretentious, arrogant, immature, and without a sense of humour; you fit the criteria for '12 year old funnyjunker' far better than I do.

Hey, I would just like to say thank you for telling me to get an account.   
Yea I know, odd thing to give thanks for when I could have gotten one easily but then again, I was a dumb bastard then and could not think very well.   
I notice your comments from time to time and get some good knowledge off of them, mainly the Lovecraft related ones.   
But like I said, thank you very much and continue to be awesome.

You are just a wonderful person, you know that? Thank you very much for your kind words and appreciation, and I'm glad you have made an account and made many friends here, including myself
#465 to #464 - captainspankmonkey (07/16/2013) [-]
