I have been analyzing my life, trying to figure out how I ended up as yet another loser posting at the obscure place of the Internet instead of becoming an internationally recognized scientist, or an inventor or just a successful rich guy (as seen on TV).

I traced everything back to a point of my life when I was a third grader. I loved one particular girl in my class, but instead of informing her of that fact I told about it to a friend, who seemed like a good, calm, even a bit timid guy (he was forced to attend a church school on Sundays, learn to play violin, etc). Upon hearing about my feelings, he immediately went to her and said that I told him that I love her. RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME! And she was laughing, and jumping over chairs and acting overall quite hyperactive. I couldn't figure it out. I was feeling deeply ashamed. I misinterpreted her laugh.

I never talked to her about it again. Although I must admit that I invited her once to my house around 5th or 6th grades, but she refused. And so, as years went by, I became more and more shut-in, still dreaming about her. At 9th grade she gained some weight, changed her haircut to a terribly ugly one, which made me realize that I've lost the sweetest years and fell into obscurity (I was even called gay for my shyness around girls and my, as I perceive it now, very cute appearance). Later she transferred to another class (mine was specialized on applied sciences, the other one was specialized on humanities) and I couldn't care less about her, but the time and mind were lost. I was far on my journey of changing from an open, curious, "life-of-the-party" guy to a misanthrope.

Even to this day I sometimes get nervous when I hear girls laughing behind my back, especially if they just passed me. I feel awkward around ladies and I lack the knowledge of how to talk to them "naturally". As a result, during any personal conversation I end up over-analyzing my words and actions and have to RTLS (or TAL at best), so to say. (ttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Shuttle_abort_modes#Intact_abort_modes)

As a side-note, there were ten years of schooling back in my day:
1st to 3rd grades - elementary school,
5th to 9th - middle school,
10th, 11th - high school.
Nowadays, 4th grade is back.

Better than I expected a Spyro game to be, from only playing demos of the earlier games in the series.

So we looked for a new Spyro game to play but oh god Spyro: Enter The Dragonfly is so bad, it's a bit painful and sad to watch or play.

The fact I can't understand them and the vocals become just another instrument is a reason I like foreign music, but I often wonder if those songs I love were sung in English, would I still like them? Probably not if done by your standard western pop starlets.

Is our language, English, capable, is English capable of sustaining demagoguery? I mean ummmm highly-charged oratory, persuasive whipping up rhetoric. Listen to me, if Hitler had been British would we, under similar circumstances, have been moved, charged up, fired by his inflammatory speeches, or would we have laughed? Is English too ironic to support Hitlerian styles? Would his language simply have rung false in our ears?

May I compartmentalise? I hate to, but may I? May I? Is our language a function of our British cynicism, tolerance, resistance to false emotion, humour and so on, or do those qualities come extrinsically - extrinsically, from the language itself? Itfs a chicken and egg problem.

"Why?" you ask. Well, imagine a fighter jet pilot who loses consciousness in the middle of high-G manoeuvre. This is what happened in Vietnam.

Most of Vietnamese pilots, however, couldn't endure high-Gs and making themselves easy targets.

So, imagine this happening to freedom fighters, that is US soldiers, during Sino-American war. All the high-tech fifth-generation jet fighters will suddenly become useless.

I've developed a worldview that convinces me that the human condition gives us "deep happiness" and flow when we engage in human deep actions. What is "deep" in this context? It's profound, resonant, understood by from down to the lower functions of the mind to the highest. Engaging in short time pleasure pleases the lower functions, but unsettles the higher, abstract, desires. Engaging in studies pleases the higher functions, but bores the lower functions. The human activities transcend lower and higher functions and resonate with the whole of the human mind. Exploration. Creation. Gathering a following. Winning debates. Competing in sports.

This is where we experience flow.

I am an Electrical Engineer for a small product development firm and I found peace in the job I do, as I am feeling like a creator. Just sometimes do I wish to also travel, document what I have seen and teach people of the conclusions I have drawn. Debate such conclusions.

here comes the great despair in my life. For I have found to hate modernism and progressivism. It is traditionalism that resonates most with me and it is traditionalism which is dead. I am a missionary with no ear that listens to me. A restless wanderer bolted to a system and place. The Keeper of a Secret. But a secret it shouldn't be.

This inner conflict will only find peace in abstraction. To find the concepts and patterns, the first ideas, the essence of traditionalism, to translate them to dispassionate describing language and publish a highly concentrated abstract form of the (varied, leaderless, beheaded) ideology, so someday it might be found by a person with more fire and clout than I have, in the time where the decline can be more felt than now.

There will lie my absolution and also the tragedy: to smith the key to freedom, but being to weak to turn the lock. As soon as the literature is written and known to be read, my mind will pulsate into harmony again.

Sometimes I want to kiss the posts on textboards. Not the people behind the posts, but the posts themselves. I want to slide my tongue all over the textboard posts and cover them in my cute girl saliva.

The problem with forums and public IRC channels is that they form cultures based around individual personalities, and those who are in or near the center are generally free to be assholes to newcomers while not being called out for that behavior, because most users are eager to please the older/more prolific posters. Fully anonymous boards are far better in this regard, because there are really no identifiable individual personalities. Thus, it doesn't matter how long you've been a poster; if you act like an idiot or an asshole there is nothing preventing other posters from being honest about your behavior. This promotes a healthy social atmosphere.

Regular bulletin boards also encourage a culture of quantity over quality, since the single most important thing in any account is the post number. A person with 15,000 posts will be respect more than a person with only 300 posts, even if the 15k guy just dumps crappy one-word responses to inane threads while every single one of the 300 guy's posts is a life-changing existential essay or comedy gold.

You can see SAoVQ getting directly shittier thanks to people naming certain posters.

Counterpoint, but what if anonymous message boards encourage a culture of making worthless posts without a second thought because there is no name attached to them, no face or reputation to save?

It's better than a vanity system. Some kind of time delay between posting and the post being visible (like a mailing list or Freenet-type network) could help with that. A voting system would too, but I don't particularly care for the idea, nor do I see that working well anonymously.

(I'm not bumping because you and I both know that neither of us thought for 24 hours before posting.)

Counter-counterpoint, having a reputation system doesn't actually prevent any of the shitposts from being made. In theory you could filter certain posters on a non-anonymous board, but I've yet to see a website that implements this. Beyond that, I think having a reputation - either positive or negative - is actually a bad thing, since readers' view of your post will be tainted by your history. Anonymity flattens the playing field and makes sure every post is judged by its own merits.

The real problem is when the users don't filter out the shit, which usually what happens when a community grows too large.
