Hey, I see things and I bother people. I mean, it's the internet, so why not, right?

I'm glad to hear that you're making progress. Adjusting one's diet is pretty beast, dude; it takes a lot of self-control. People sometimes talk about it offhand like it's nothing, but man, sometimes I just want some fucking M&M's.

Hey uh, I don't mean to push, but if you get bored, I know some workout stuff that helped me. I'll throw some your way or whatever.

But like, I'm gonna go off and get lost in FJ again. So... ya.

bai. =o

Err. I do not mean to antagonize you further, or conjure bad things around you, but that was why I was initially hostile.

C'mon, man. You can take care of yourself better than that. ^^; Look, I was a scrawny guy all through high-school, and like... I only in the last few years ever started lifting weights and stuff.

And talk about addiction? Wow. Working out actually becomes addictive, if you do it correctly. Like...

... Well actually, I puzzled myself into a corner, here. Is there such a thing as a ' good ' addiction?
#65 - silasP (09/06/2014) [-]
Oh I'm aware of how inexcusable my shape is. I'm overweight and it's my own fault, and I plan to make some changes. I've cut out sodas and deserts for the most part, I'm running as often as able, and I'm hoping to see some improvement soonish.

My dad actually just lived through a heart attack, and jumped so hard on the fitness beast, that when he went back to the doctors they were shocked at how quickly he recovered. They said they've never seen someone snap back so fast, and took him off of like eighteen different meds.

I appreciate your encouraging words, and am further inspired to get this fat ass moving until it isn't fat anymore.

Another, kind of related example of this tactic would be when, instead of thinking of the product, you think of the brand.

Like with cotton swabs. Never in my life have I heard anybody call them cotton swabs. Everybody says Q-Tip. Which is the name of a brand of cotton swabs.

This also applies to Kleenex, or Vaseline.

It does make me feel better. Like. As much as one thumb on the internet means to anyone. I gave you a thumb too, because you kept calm and polite in response to an attack from my part.

Look, I'm not going to apologize, but I do respect you a bit more, now. Hell, I may give all your comments thumbs. I don't have a lot to do tonight, and I am having fun. :3

Also, I've been to the Coke museum in GA. It really is pretty impressive. And they do above-the-line advertising very well, I agree. Which is kind of terrifying, sometimes.

Addiction is a scary thing.
#57 - silasP (09/06/2014) [-]
I try not to be a jerk most of the time, but we all have our petty moments. Hence the red thumb. It's always nice when we manage to resolve these things peacefully, though. I do not regret giving you a green thumb.

I agree that addiction is pretty scary. I had a serious introspective moment when I walked out of that museum thinking, "man, I could totally go for a Coke!" I'm fat enough from overeating and being a desk jockey for 40 hours a week. I don't need soda's help. XD

What particular tactic?
o_o I know only a little bit about advertising, actually. I worked as a door-to-door salesman for like... all of a week before I quit.
Um. So please, tell me things?

Also, if that's you who gave me a red thumb, you're a jerk.
I mean, I was being a jerk, but I was doing it for a reason. I don't see your reason for giving me a thumb down for stating a conflicting opinion.
#55 - silasP (09/06/2014) [-]
The Pavlovian response. Or, as the advertising industry calls it, "branding." They've got a long history and a huge presence in the world of colorful shit that pops up in your face between TV shows and YouTube videos, and they're quite skilled at taking advantage of it. My point was that I don't particularly enjoy their flagship product, but the seeming omnipresence of the Coca-Cola brand, coupled with attractive packaging, makes me want to drink it. It works. That, and the museum made for a fun afternoon was all I was stating.

And I gave the red thumb not because you stated a conflicting opinion, but because of the condescension, which was apropos of absolutely nothing. I'll thumb it back up if it makes you feel better.

You are an example. That's what your life is. An example.
Have you even HEARD of Pavlov?

I think Pavlov may be the wrong one.
User avatar #72 - lathyrusvii (09/06/2014) [-]
I think you're fucking uneducated. He had empirical evidence and proof.
What kind of fucking science experiments have you done, shitlord?
User avatar #73 - johnmcallister (09/06/2014) [-]
No need to be angry, its just that I remember some other psychologist, not Pavlov, associated with the studies associated with this. I could be wrong.
User avatar #74 - lathyrusvii (09/06/2014) [-]
Oh. Wait, what? You lost me.

Are you saying that his assistant did the work?

Or are you trying to say that classical conditioning isn't a direct result of Pavlov's work?

I'm no longer angry, simply curious. <<
User avatar #76 - johnmcallister (09/06/2014) [-]
How is this classical conditioning? I don't see the neutral stimulus and the positive stimulus in the situation silasP described, unless of course, I am mistaken about the nature of classical conditioning.
User avatar #80 - lathyrusvii (09/06/2014) [-]
I retroactively corrected my thumbs, by-the-by, an light of how pleasant you are when assailed by my harsh words on the internet.

You're kind of tough. That's a neat characteristic. I like seeing that in people.

Would You Kindly visit my "choice-games" channel? I do not wish to ask much of you, but it is lacking in content, and given the nature of it, it would be a shame for it to starve.
User avatar #82 - lathyrusvii (09/06/2014) [-]
I don't know. You kind of freak me out, using that Bioshock terminology ' would-you-kindly... '

But I guess I can risk it. At least one of the endings in Bioshock was a good one, right? I'll aim for that one, just in case you're trying to mind-control me. <_<;
User avatar #83 - johnmcallister (09/06/2014) [-]
I have just seemed to notice, almost disturbingly, that I would ask people questions on FunnyJunk, and every time I used the phrase "Would You Kindly", they responded positively. Now, I know correlation is not causation, and Bioshock is just a video game, but my first post here was a Bioshock roll game.
User avatar #84 - lathyrusvii (09/06/2014) [-]
:3 Heh. That's kind of terrifying. But, if you'd like, I could respond negatively towards you when you use that phrase.

Because mind-control shit -is- horribly creepy. e__e I enjoy free-will too much to be deprived of it, or to deprive anyone of it, almost no matter what the circumstances are.
Hypnotizm is fucking scary.
User avatar #88 - johnmcallister (09/06/2014) [-]
I hate the idea of depriving people of free will, and I almost want to hurt people who suggest the idea. I even hate the idea of superheroes with political motivations, because anyone on the other side of the issue would look like Literally Hitler. Or even worse, a superman who would actively punish those who speak on the other side of an issue.

By the way, does that "chat in the corner of the screen" box work? I have never observed it to have worked. Did you get the message?
User avatar #78 - lathyrusvii (09/06/2014) [-]
Um. I believe that you are? Were it that I had my psychology textbook near me, so that I could actually have something to reference instead of my own memory...

I tend to try to not -rely- on my memory, as much as is possible. But that's a different story.

I believe that the ' neutral ' stimulus is the coke packaging itself. It has become so entwined with the brand that simply seeing the packaging causes one to develop a thirst.

Does this make sense?
#79 - johnmcallister (09/06/2014) [-]
I see. Thanks m8.
#51 - silasP (09/06/2014) [-]
