Post here when you don't have enough to say for a topic and it's too depressing for the general crawl thread.

I HATE THIS WEBSITE.
I HATE CHANS.
I HATE THIS ANTI-INTELLECTUALISM THE WORLD HAS EMBRACED. But yet, I keep coming to this shithole because I have nowhere else to go. Imageboards make me angry. I can't stand you guys. I'm fed up. I'm tired of making thoughtful posts to get a reply such as "lol nice". Fucking imbeciles. I tell you.
Plus, at the end of the day, none of this matters anyway. ALL arguments are basically "I'm right and you're wrong." So I can only assume that arguments/discussions, most of the time, are also pointless and a waste of time. It's just people trying to boost their sense of importance at all cost. Knowledge is power, not because it will help you succeed in life, but because knowledge is just another way to feel superior to your fellow human beings. It's another survival mechanism. You see, animals aren't rational creatures, but their instincts are far more acute than ours. Our intellect then was given to us due to our fragile natural instincts. It's just a way to increase the Will to Power. Knowledge doesn't seek truth. It seeks power. So what I'm looking for is a place where I can talk to like-minded people and feel a sense of belonging but it's such a difficult task. I can't relate to anyone. I can't stand human beings and their manners. I can't stand small/trivial talk. I can't look at life any other away. I'm a pessimist. I can only have fun when I'm on drugs. I'm not blaming you guys, everyone is different. I encourage you all to read Nietzsche to understand what I'm talking about. I feel lonely, extremely lonely but it's MY loneliness. It belongs to me and I no longer want to mitigate loneliness by pointlessly debating with people on the internet, who most of the time, can't relate to you. Can't take you seriously and love insulting others (I must confess; I'm sensitive to insults. I don't like being insulted, but God I love insulting others, especially with specific words that mean something to me. It probably has something to do with all the bullying I went through in school). Freud probably knows more about this than me.

From now on, I'll write for myself and myself only (Kinda ironic because I could've been doing this right now). I hate debating with people who try to outsmart you without the necessary knowledge. I, however, have no problem with listening to people more experienced than me. I don't talk to people, the few exceptions are old people. I'll be old someday so I want to hear some advice fromPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

You have an over inflated sense of ego and cannot see the problems in yourself and choose to only see the fault in others. Your whole spiel reads like a very basic, common midlife crisis from someone who just discovered nihilism. The pic you attached almost makes this seem like borderline trolling. You are exactly the type of person you hate. You claim to have some sense of knowledge, a higher understanding of the world, urging others to read works you have decided to embody. But I guarantee your knowledge does not even scratch the surface of the field you are trying to display mastery over, you lack experience both in academics and life. Drop your ego and try to embrace the world with an infants mind

If you had actually read what I wrote, you'd notice that I admitted that knowledge is nothing but will to power. You know what your post sounds to me? "I'm right and you're wrong". Human relations are like that. That's why I like that quote from Schopenhauer.

I dropped out of grad school, so now I finally lost my pseudo-neet life. I had hoped that my parents could do something genuinely useful for me in my life (other than being a glorified atm) and just get me a menial job. Nope, they're gonna dump that on me. They're just gonna "point me in the right direction" or whatever.
My plan now is to hopefully get through the hell of applying to wageslave positions and hopefully get one. I don't even care about the money, I just need something stable and easy to do as an excuse. Then I can finally move out of the house, it makes me feel so shitty being here. Get a cheap apartment and work for a while. If/when I get fed up working, I can just go neet. They can't stop me if I'm moved out. I have a trust fund that apparently has 200K or so, I can use that and whatever money I save up to live until they die and I inherit the rest. Or I can go on autismbux or something.

Do you feel like you simply are not meant to be here on Earth?

Do you feel apathy towards the traditional metric of human growth and success (allegiance, military service, philanthropy, job, family, children, property, wife, friends)?

Do you frequently question you being here on this planet as a member of this species?

A lot of troubles in my life can be summed up to being incompatible with people. I simply don't "get" things that appear to be intuitive/common knowledge to other people. I don't care about most of things people care about. I don't display the "appropriate" emotions at the "appropriate" opportunities.

Every groid stereotype you can think up, I likely don't fit the mold. It's as if a divine power stuck the spirit of an alien or animal into this fleshy body to observe how'd it turn out to have opposing elements exist together, because they were bored.

Now, let's return to the original question: do you feel like an alien stranded on Earth? Please elaborate.

There is a certain emotional and cognitive distance that I notice towards other people. They react to situations and events instinctual and without delay while I most times don't know how to feel and what to do when things happen.

If I was a mere spectator of the universe around I'd be happy. But I'm involved in it and suffer just like the all other living beings and thus this distance from other life forms makes the suffering even worse. Normal people seem to have found their way of dealing with pain through categories like job, family etc. which you listed but we have to invent our own categories but this is much harder, takes more time and is barely appreciated and often disregarded by other people who in effect act against us making it even more difficult to have a endurable existence.

Having to fake these sort of reactions to things is why I pretty much just stopped interacting with people altogether. It's just so tiresome.

 No.207750

Same here. For example, deaths in the family don't make me feel anything and I react neutrally. It's pleasant to remove myself from interacting with people unless it is necessary. I find comfort in insulating myself from people and their problems.

Does anybody know of or experienced being dead for a short time and came back alive? Did you see anything or feel anything? I’d really like to know because it creeps me out.

The only coherent definition of death is the absence of life. So we know that life after death does exist since you were dead before you were born, and now you are alive.

 No.207732

>>207731
That's not a good defintion. It makes no sense saying you were dead before being born. You can only die after you're born. The time before you were born you weren't dead, you didn't exist, it's different. Something that doesn't exist doesn't die or do anything for that matter, it doesn't exist in the first place.

 No.207748

>>207732
If we cease to exist after we die, there is no reason to think that we can't come into life from nonexistence, since we have done so before.
If we do not cease to exist after we die, the nature of the death-existence must be explored further.

Because it's almost impossible to pull off nowadays. It worked in the 50s when companies did not expect their workforce to rebel, but now companies have all of their supervisors trained on how to identify unionizing and workers are told that they will be terminated if they unionize (they use different wording of course, like "your behavior does not align with the company's values"). Here's Amazon's union busting training video:

I've been working on a 'zerohour' contract for some months now, where I have to fill in the hours I work and am free to put in however many I like. but for some time now I'm not paid what I should be, I get paid 5 days or so a month, I thought at first it was an error since I just started or there was a vacation period and it'd come back but I'm going into the 4th month now and I cant live on the salary of 5 workdays a month. I put in roughly 13~15 days a month.

the problem is I'm too much of a mess to speakup somewhere and complain about it, I just check into work and try not to be bothered by anyone. anyone had similar experience? should I just casually try to bring it up with my manager or try though an email? I'm not really in a position to switch jobs either as I currently need the flexible hours and lack experience

My mom is constantly complaining under her breath about the mess of the house, yet most of it is made either by dogs she unilaterally decided to bring here, or her live-in boyfriend who she unilaterally decided to move in. Sometimes it comes to the point of shouting and it is very difficult to empathize as I know I would not have made these choices, and if I regretted their outcomes so much, would have gone back on them.

Half of her rage is justified as this guy is a slob, and he constantly blames me and my brother for things he actually does, like make a mess of the kitchen and leaving toilets full of shit. To avoid her meltdowns I sometimes flush a toilet he leaves behind or wipe up a mess he left.

It angers me greatly that he then goes and blames me for behavior I never do, for his own behaviors that I cover for. If not for having to actually use the toilet/kitchen occasionally I would more often leave his mess for her to find, which I have been trying to make an effort to do.

At the same time, she is quick to yell about noise, which gets yelling in return, and this is upsetting for me so I generally try to find a way to leave the room, preferably the house by taking the dogs out back.

I get angry at her for doing this, not because of getting angry (because it is understandable) but because she refuses to harness her anger to actually make a choice to solve the problem: ending the abusive relationship. She won't get counseling, won't find a support group, and inevitably will lash out at anyone who even agrees with her momentary criticisms of him, accusing them (including myself, her mother, her siblings) of not wanting her to be happy, being a racist, etc.

I'm increasingly becoming resolved to simply give up on this family, more and more it is just economic feasability which keeps me here as I've never had a high-enough paying job to rent a bachelor apartment in the area. Even renting a room (non-private bathroom) or taking a room-mate would be very expensive, and those introduce unknowns I would need to navigate which are frightening.

I feel trapped so I continue to bear this abuse. But it makes it hard to sleep, hard to read, I'm afraid to begin my schooling because I know how hard it makes to study. But unless I can get a psych to acknowledge my anxiety and depression for big bux it doesn't seem likely I'll find a path out of this without getting a high enough education to start at a high-wage jobPost too long.

Since the internet is as it was, a place for mistifts is in the great process of dying.. where have the actual misfits gone now?
For example this very site is affected too, in 2017 I could still see various quality posts on /dep done by real recluses but I guess the situation here drove them away.

If anyone of you, "those" people reading this.. please tell me where you have gone nowadays?
Be it other sides of the internet or I dunno where.

>The only thing I don't have is a vivid fantasy world.
I relate to this anon. I have somewhat of a fantasy world but it is hardly vivid. I’m very unimaginative for the most part. I have brief periods where my mental landscape becomes incredibly detailed and involved, and I have this amazing imagery and sensations. But it is incredibly rare (maybe two-three times a year) and has never lasted longer than an hour or so. 99% of the time my mind is just an endless internal monologue droning on and on, analyzing everything without emotion or passion.

The one exception is my dreams. Almost every night i have many intensely vivid and detailed dreams. So engaging. I am listless and detached m in my waking life but in my dreams i feel alive and in the moment. There’s many recurring locations, sometimes i’ll visit a location in a dream years apart. The environments are so complexly designed, even down to the small details. It fascinates me that my subconscious mind could create such things and is so imaginative, but when i’m awake i seem entirely unable to tap into it.

I sleep a lot because i prefer my dreams to reality. I take drugs sometimes to sedate myself so i can sleep longer/dream more. I’m starting to feel pain in my body from sleeping so much, especially since i don’t have a bed and sleep on the floor.

I may not be exactly you but this is my exact situation and has been all my life. It seems as I get older it only gets worse too even though I haven't really changed much over the past 4 years.

I can't describe it other than the fact I am a hate magnet, when I was younger I would call myself the most hated man on earth. I didn't need to do anything, I just had to be within interacting distance of people and sometimes it caused hostility or exaggerated negative reactions from others, it didn't even matter if I opened my mouth yet and said anything at all. It doesn't matter whose side I am on or what I do in any state of mind. I wouldn't say I look ugly but I also look awkward if that makes any sense and the only way to make myself look acceptable to even myself is to keep my head shaved very short. I also hate my voice and honestly think there was some birth defect in the development of something concerning it but that alone probably can't explain something like this. It's as if on a genetic level I am highly offensive to many others. I try not to look at people either even if they're in my field of vision with absolutely no focus on them cause they will literally feel it and react negatively. Shit you not, I had a funny situation regarding that lately actually where people got pissed at me for literally just standing in line and doing nothing but looking forward (of course not hard staring forward like a robot but you know what I mean), no anxiety nothing at the time. It was twilight zone bizarre. Are we cursed or something? Cause that's the only other explanation I have for this phenomenon.

In primary school I was bullied by 50% of the students in my class.
In middle school I was bullied by 75% students of my class.
In high school it was once again 50% of the class.

By bullying I mean being bullied by one person at least 2 times.


Does it mean that potentially 50% of the people of earth are my enemies?
Its quite logical conclusion.

Raises a good point. It has always appeared to me that some people are pegged by the greater crowd to be bullied. Even those who do not directly bully the unfortunate victim will either ignore or commend the behavior under many guises, such as banter or as the aforementioned post pointed out, that it is somehow a benefit of the victim in the long term.

Not really true. I was a silent loner in highschool and never tried to insert myself into social situations, and my experiences do agree with yours in that nobody went out of their way to fuck with "the quiet kid who never bothers anybody", but experiences can vary.

To begin it depends on whether you went to a school with "soft kids" (middle-class+/whites and asians) or "hard kids" (lower class, blacks, browns and etc.) For me it was the former but I can definetely see myself having gotten fucked with badly if I had gone to the latter.

On top of that, the truth is that I did get bullied, but I was too socially oblivous ro care. When it comes to "soft" kids they don't do things like beat you up or even verbally assault you, they aim for your reputation and talk behind your back. If you're a loner you're an easy, almost irresistable target since you have no "allies" or "clout". I was totally surprised when I first caught winds of what a bad reputation I had and how much people (even people I didn't even know existed, never seen before in my life) actually did care about and notice me.

Also, bullying in highschool is actually not as bad as it is once you're past highschool. People like to say kids are mean but I have always found that to be false; people become way more socially agressive when they get older. I never got fucked with in highschool as agressively and directly as I did once I was 19, 20 by other people that age and some years older. I'm still the schizoid-loner-who-doesn't-care-about-his-appearance that I was in HS and people now practically jump at the chance to insult me, laugh at me, or try to make me feel lesser-than, and be as egregious about it as possible.

Sometimes, I'll hear a normie use the following argument:

>X had to endure all these terrible things for decades. You can definitely survive what you're going through!


Or a slightly flipped-on-its-head version:

>Anon, you've gone through X, and Y; surely you can take on Z.


Isn't the logic completely flipped here? When I hear these stories, I'm not inspired at all. I end up thinking, "Why the fuck did X carry on at all?! You're proving my point!" All these 'inspirational' stories are just proof that giving up is often the best course of action.
