I hope nobody minds that I cleaned up the title a little bit.

801 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6854 03:51

Trust me, she isn't worth it. You don't need her to affirm your life - the only one that can do that is yourself. And remember that DQN is here for you. Bros before hoes.

802 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6854 05:22

I'm calmer now, thanks. I just get worked up sometimes...

803 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6854 09:57

It's best just to not ever get into a relationship in the first place! The world is a mean place, and the only way you can maximize your happiness is by spending your time in isolation - stop looking outside of yourself!

804 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6854 11:54

I played Psychonauts (got it as part of the Indie Bundle V) and I was surprised how much it sucks despite all the critical praise. The writing is amusing, but that's all it has going for it. Game-wise it's just an old N64 platformer but with frustrating controls and a camera. If you're going to make me do generic platforming, at least give me smooth controls and camera. I might be able to forgive the terrible gameplay if it had good atmosphere, but the graphics are ugly as hell and I can't stand the whole 'wacky music' thing. No wonder this game didn't sell well.

Sword and Sworcery EP, on the other hand, is proving to be pretty good. It's light on the gameplay end, but it's more about the atmosphere of the graphics and music, which I think are excellent.

805 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6854 12:26

( ˃ Д˂) >>803 No, no, no! Don't shut yourself off from the world, you might just find someone who will love you and make it all worth it.

( ・-・) 。。。

806 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6854 12:45

I assume you have Amnesia: The Dark Descent as well? I seem to recall I made a post about that a while back... Haha, yes, I did.

807 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6854 13:56

>>804 you're probably not going to be surprised, but all that's been said before.

( ・-・) I for one am absolutely ecstatic that collectathon platformers have gone the way of disco.

808 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6854 14:03

I agree it's most important to find happiness from within yourself first, rather than rely on others to give it to you. However, once you've established that, there's no reason to stay lonely. Nothing last forever, but that doesn't mean we can't love and be loved while it lasts.

Yep, but I'm waiting for the weekend to play it because I want to get good and drunk first. I don't normally scare very easily but I've never played a horror game before so I'm not sure how it's going to go.

809 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6854 14:26

I'm mostly contented with who I am, but love is nice!

810 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6854 18:28

Then she does not deserve you.
But don't close yourself off from the world. I do consider myself to be introverted and asocial. However living like that *all* the time makes me feel sad. I made a promise to myself to change for the better an age ago. Now I have good friends, and maybe even something more in days to come.

811 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6854 23:34

My head hurts.

812 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 01:13

Is it bad to love someone more than they love you?

813 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 01:22

Nope! All relationships are like that, at least in the beginning.

All you can do is hope and try that they'll come up to your level. But don't try too hard, or you could end up in some sort of institution.

814 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 01:33

>>810 I'm also an extreme introvert, and I want to become a part of society again. But I can't stand dating, or even women for the most part. How do you get over that fact?

815 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 01:40

Einfühlungsvermögen, 811, einfühlungsvermögen.

816 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 04:06

Forget about dating for now, start with the small stuff - learning how to use small talk to make quick friends and such.

817 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 04:24

>>816 I can already manage small talk. I have to do that at work. I can't make deeper connections, though. And I'm pretty sure none of this will help me with the relationship problem.

sorry, I don't mean to be contrary. But I've thought it through a lot by now.

818 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 06:32

Ah, I see. When you said you were extremely introverted I wasn't sure how bad it was since some people can't even leave the house.

Anyway, deeper connections are just a matter of slowly revealing personal things about yourselves little by little. Drop little hints of your true self here and there, and they will start to reciprocate with their own. Sometimes you can move along the process faster with personal questions. That's how you start to become friends.

Of course you don't have any reason to do this if you don't like them in the first place. You can't really force yourself to like someone. Just take it easy and eventually you will meet somebody that's true friend material. They're rare but out there. You may already know one but not realize it yet.

819 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 06:45

goddamn I just realized I sound like a freaking horoscope, please don't take my words too seriously

820 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 12:42

One kind of criticism to the exclusion of all other kinds of criticisms is is the cancer that is giving criticism a bad name.

821 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 14:06

>>819 don't worry about it. Your advice is good. I just need to find people who share my interests, and who I can talk to. And maybe romance can come after I have some friends...? Well, I still have serious doubts about that, but there's no use thinking about it.

822 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 14:48

It carries out and is Tungsten.

823 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 15:22

Get over it? I don't. This is going to sound really arrogant, but I look at most people as idiots. And my IQ is only slightly above the average. This situation is probably a lot worse for people with much higher IQs. But anyway, most people are shit. It's the norm. I just deal with it. But if I choose not to interact with anybody at all then I won't ever get to find the few people who are not shit. And they are great. People like me and people like you. I never knew this was what real friends were like until I got some. And it's great.
Is good advice.

824 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 16:10

Too much thinking in this thread and too little feeling.

825 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6855 19:26

I have a very high IQ and I appreciate the differences in people. I don't think that intelligence has anything to do with it.

826 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6856 00:54

I'm not particularly intelligent, but I feel the same way about people. Though the fact is, a lot of people think exactly like us.

I'd quite frankly rather be one of the idiots and appreciate everyone as my peers. It must be so nice to take everyone seriously rather than a select few people.

827 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6856 05:37

Try to look at life from their perspective and analyze why they think the way they do. It's possible to find grains of wisdom amidst the stupidity. I think writing off other people as 'shit' is just as dumb as the inability to solve logic puzzles.

828 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6856 11:26

My IQ is stratospheric. Doesn't make me not an "idiot" in any sense but the "low IQ" one. IQ is largely a measure of your ability to take IQ tests.

If you look at most people as shit, you are arrogant.

butts butts butts

829 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6856 12:23

>>824 is T A N A S I N N

830 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6856 12:42

>>828 I look at most people as shit, but it doesn't have to do with intelligence. Intelligence isn't something that can be controlled. Either you're smart or you're not, no sense in being proud of something you can't control (like your nationality, etc.) I don't look down on someone with a low IQ, because that wasn't his choice.

No, what I despise is ignorance. Ignorance is something you can control. Different opinions aside, I've got no respect for people who spout off about subjects they know nothing about as if they did. And while education can help, it doesn't always: I've met people without high school diplomas who are very well-informed (and very smart sometimes too) and I've met people with advanced degrees who completely had their heads up their asses.

831 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6856 12:58

>>830, I think I grasp the distinction. May I illustrate with an anecdote from my family?

In high-school, a science teacher played a prank on his class by telling them that the direction, clockwise or counterclockwise, that the water runs out of the toilet when we flush is dependent upon the gender of its last user. Most of the kids, including my younger sister, went home and attempted to verify this by experiment.

When she told our stepfather, a man illiterate his entire life, who also could not perform basic arithmetic, he laughed and said "How does the toilet know?"

My sister, as many youths are, was ignorant. My stepfather, while not a learned or worldly man, was not.

Is this the distinction, or have I failed to grasp something?

832 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6856 13:12

> I've got no respect for people who spout off about subjects they know nothing about as if they did.

And neither do I.


833 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6856 13:45

>>831 yeah, I'd say that's the distinction, pretty much. Though that might have to do with the fact that students can be easily misled by their teachers, since they're supposed to be authorities on their subjects and all. Formal education doesn't teach you common sense, I guess.

I was also thinking of people who talk about "important issues" like politics and economics, and who think that because they've got a B.A. in Business Administration and watch 24-hour cable news that they know how to fix the world. There's nothing wrong with talking about these things, but if you're going to talk as if you were an expert, at least take from more sources than goddamn CNN and Fox News. Maybe read a few fucking books first, do some research and try to find both sides of the story. Sorry, I don't want to make this political, but I know a lot of these people. There might just be a lot of them where I live.

I'm trying to scrobble one of my favorite artists, and it shows I'm listening to her, but it won't record the plays.

846 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6857 14:51

For some reason I find Last.fm invasive. I mean, it has logs of all the music you've listened to in the past X years. Of course it's not like your music library is going to come up in a court of law years down the line, nor is the Last.fm software judging your terrible music taste, but it just feels scary to me.

What kind of ritual are you talking about?

881 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6860 17:59

One of my own creation. It consists of picturing a thought that is troubling me as a small tangible object, holding it in one hand, and, using my other hand, making a cutting motion through it. It doesn't help dramatically, but it has stopped me from dwelling on certain thoughts, as tends to happen.

882 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6860 18:10

I've been doing that four the last four days.

883 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6860 19:34

I want the >>>888 GET.

I must have it.

884 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6860 20:33

My mother calls me. She asks if I have a Book of Mormon she can borrow. I tell her I think I have one but will probably have to dig for it. Whatever. I think she's studying up on Mormons because one might be president. She tells me that they went to see The Avengers which is kind of weird, but everyone else on earth has seen it. She then tells me that Captain America is "way too Aryan; Hitler would have loved him." I tell her that he's from the forties; there were a lot more white people back then. She says "well, then they should have used someone like John Hamm or 'some Italian.' Someone with some color to them..."

Old people are unbelievably racist. We should put them in camps...

885 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6860 22:22


> there were a lot more white people back then.


886 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6861 05:51

There has always been minority populations but back then the minorities were whiter.

Thank you.

896 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6861 16:44

Is it weird that I'm buying a book of mormon rather than getting one for free by just asking? I think if I ordered one from the church, they'd send guys to my house to tell me how great their little club is. I guess I could have ordered it and had it sent directly to my mother. The terrible things she'd have to say about the cheery and clean-cut white people on her doorstep would almost be worth it.

I went to two used book stores, each of which had multiple copies in the past. Both were out. Now is the time to invest in Mormon futures, I guess. I actually ended up ordering it online through Amazon marketplace. They don't sell it themselves, which seems weird. Well, they do sell a Kindle version. Even weirder, I guess.

897 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6861 17:06

They mail it to you. If they come to your house, just say that you can't deal with people, it's what I did.

What does it mean to "invest in a Mormon future"? Reading the book of mormon won't make you millions of dollars, it won't even probably make you five. The only people who need religious texts by necessity are religious leaders or religious teachers, and then there's some doubt (in my mind, at least) that they truly need their sacred words then. Faith is built around belief and nothing else.

898 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6861 19:05

Can't you buy one of better quality, though? I had a ton of free Bibles but they were all small and printed on that awful recycled paper you can see right through. A couple of years ago I got rid of them and bought a sturdier one.

899 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6861 20:03

I'd only end up talking to myself anyway.

900 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6861 20:31

Sorry, it's just a turn of phrase and related to futures and options, not a future of mormonism.

I have a few of those giveaways. Some had a prayer translated into a bunch of foreign languages and were always briefly interesting to look at. Tamil is a funny looking one.
