Autistic janny edition
I never seen a better philosophy ranking than this list. I wish it had more philosophers on it. Like Berkeley. To the anon who made it: can you add more? I agree wrt to all that I read from it.PlatoAristotleAquinasPlotinus / Proclus / Damascius / AugustineHusserl / LeibnizHegelKant / Schelling / Heidegger / HumeSchopenhauerDescartes / NietzscheKierkegaard
>>20369398speaking of philosophy what does this sound like?a) all living things are consciousb) which all proceeds from the consciousness of the universec) consciousness can exist outside the experience of bodiesd) which explains the existence of spirits
>>20369402>b) which all proceeds from the consciousness of the universeSounds like gay pantheism
i ate general tso's chicken for lunch fuckin gross idk what possessed me i guess it's the weekend so i just bought something low effort
>mods deleted thread in which I complained about mods deleting poetry threadI feel like it's giving too much credit to the mods to say they were embarrassed I painted them as the sort to believe Catullus was a Russian bot; it implies they know enough about Catullus to make a judgement on the matter.
I was just on Omegle and honestly it's a bit weird how many pervy old men and dumb little kids willing to do anything there are. Kind of spooky if you ask me. I'm in the bored college kids camp.
>>20369408haha. someone said it was close to Vendata Hinduism but whatever, dude.
Need me a comely, sanguine, virgin girl whom i can make my wife and love until i die.
>>20369455and if its pantheism, it doesn't seem monistic. someone remarked about cosmopsychism in the other thread.
>>20369459>>20369455Ok still gay
>>20369455>Vendata Hinduism >Vendatawww.youtube.com/watch?v=qKV9bK-CBXoVedanta, anon. Combining "Vedas" (scripture) and "Anta" (conclusion). Not vendata, combining Venn and data.
Why has the quality of this board declined so much? It used to be full of interesting discussions and you could here and there find genuinely well-read and intelligent posters to engage with. Nowadays it's just zoomers who don't read posturing anonymously ad infinitum. I've had better luck finding good discussions on pl*bbit during the last few months than on this forsaken wasteland.
>>20369477It's always been the same you're just a plebbitor in denial
>>20369477Zoomers are the report fags is my going theory and if you don't forcibly spoonfeed them every sentence this is about a book and a smart thing, they are unable to parse the relevance to the board. You can't rely on curiosity any more with a generation raised by a fyp
I'm done reading for today.I'm done with video games for today.It's still too early for bed.I'm bored out of my mind.So I picked out an episode of Night Hood to watch.Good god does this thing look both great and terrible at the same time.Why did it have to be set in late 30s?Why can't he be the usual thief everyone and their mother knows him to be?Why is it more about espionage and mafia than art and jewelry?Why is a teenage boy more familiar with shady bars than a reporter whose job is to know everything shady?Wouldn't be surprised if he sneaks out to go drinking there after she made him drink carrot juice again.Why does Karst have his men keep framing Lupin if he doesn't want Lupin to ruin his plans?Why is it even always Karst of all people?Why is Kelly even getting interviews from Karst in his building if he already had her kidnapped once and his men made several attempts at her life?How did Kelly, a reporter so absolutely useless at dealing with danger, manage to stay alive before Lupin spotted her?Why is french police so retarded it stops being funny soon?Why even bother giving pearls to Kelly if she is the type to dress as a man 24/7, including the evening at the opera? Speaking of the opera, it looked like two guys on a date. Three guys with Max. Grognard was probably counting his blessings he got to stay in the car.Why was Lupin's mother, the focal point of his characterization, completely ignored and replaced with his dad no longer being mediocre thief but rather secret agent of justice? Where the bloody hell even was that man when Titanic was sinking and his son had to be rescued by a random member of the staff?Why is nanny Victoire now uncle Victor?Why does so many people in this cartoon have red hair?It's still a very comfy cartoon, but Herlock Sholmes and Wilson were unironically the best part in all this, while appearing very little.

I keep falling for women I talk to online. Not in love, but just enough to care about them as if they were in my life for real. We talk on the phone, video call, share stuff about our lives and our days, and pleasure each other the best we can, and we enjoy each other. I don't feel bad about it because they're usually just as lonely as I am. But the day always comes where she finds a real man, not online, to give her the true experience of flesh that she wants and that I want. And it always hurts. And, you know, I have to stop once that happens because then I start to feel pathetic. Her being sexually active all of the sudden and old me still sitting behind his computer screen waiting for her to be online. I know I'm out once that happens. But it still hurts. I've been going through this same cycle for years, since I was a teen, and you never get numb to the fact that you aren't real to them, nor they to you. It's been years since I was attracted to someone I knew in the flesh. But, still, I do it to myself. It's fun. It's usually really good and fun while it lasts. And I feel cared about for a while. Almost like I have someone to go home to. In a way I do. Like something to look forward to when I get home besides a drab, echoing apartment that is just nothing but silence. Unloving, cold, heavy silence. Other than my loneliness, I'm starved for conversation. And I'm not talking about any of that water cooler bullshit that happens at work. I'm talking about real, interested, engaging conversation. The kind that exposes and connects you to people. There's nothing else to do other than talk to each other most of the time. It's sobering, really. We watch movies, play games, watch each other nut, but none of it comes before conversation. Like, a good conversation. Where you understand her and her you. Sometimes young men complain about how there is nothing left to discover in this world. But I would say to them that there is nothing more exciting left to discover than the intricacies of her life. Her wild plains, her canyons, her vast oceans. She is all more beautiful and surprising to me than all of the green outside my windows. And yet she and her life are intangible and are as temporary to me as every bit of nature. And when she inevitably finds her own way, I'll find my way on to the next one and the next one and the next one.
Why do I have this habit of sharing intimate thoughts in these threads? It has something of a religious ritual. WHO are you anyway. Pffft
I joined a /lit/ discord server once. I never follow it because it's just retarded zoomers. Today out of curiosity I searched some names. The level of discussion is worse than retarded.
>>20369662>Where you understand her and her you.I've no clue how to find this in person and it's killing me.
>>20369662i have gone so lonely that now i just troll people irl or pretend to be retarded so they feel pity and participate in my banter for a few seconds because i know that the moment i stop going outside is the moment i will become a hermit and ruin more precious time of my life
i honestly think im one of the smartest humans that ever lived
>>20369692same bro we have so much in common!!!!!!!!!
>>20369692I’m too smart for sex
Femanon I know you are lonely. I am tall and blonde. Be my gf
>>20369398Check out Philo of Alexandria and Boethius to supplement your reading on the Platonic tradition
>>20369453You have to wade through so much shit but I've had really good conversations on Omegle
>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwnH6KT-nawsummer hours start NOW three day weekends LET'S GO!
>>20369675Its people without direction trying to educate themselves. Cut them some slack, at least they're trying.
>>20369764Worse, quite a few of them are actually in academia doing this
why doesn't that guy who posts all those tl;dr threads of eastern mystical hokum just get a fucking blog. i always scroll past them like so much noise, but if he put them on his own website he could at least put ads on it or sell merch or something. why grind out so much content for people who do not care.
>>20369776Well if they're 18 yesr olds in their first year then its fine. If they're actually beyond an undergrad then they should be immolated
>>20369675tf you expect from discord
>read three pages of the /pol/ schoolshooter's essaywouldn't recommend. low, even for 4chud standards.
I want to fall in love and find a life partner, and better myself spiritually and emotionally, to make someone happy.
swear I'm not on drugs but isn't it pretty crazy how apart from the outside world you have a whole inside world. like, no one even knows what I'm thinking. it all just goes on in there. recently I've been thinking how it's weird that you just know your thoughts are in your head. why aren't they in your knees or something?
>>20369792you need to do that in reverse
>>20369792I want to love so badly.I want to create a world of absolute love and safety for the people that will be in my life.I want to be strength and comfort for them.How the fuck do I find them
>>20369797I am reminded why I have such disdain for academia. I think I'm going to go live in a dirt floor cabin.

>>20369805they are indirectlycertain stimuli on your knee can directly affect your brain and your thoughts, in other words your knee is a humble master of your head and thoughts and they cant do anything about it
Just bought a ruler...so apparently I'm six inches exactly (including bell-end). Should I just kill myself?
>>20369823i've seen people with IQs of 90 get phds from harvard. thinking academia is a real place where scholarship happens, with real standards and traditions, is like thinking congress is real, or north korea is a democracy because it says it is.
>>20369398This was supposed to be the time I would get closer to God and really study music theory for the first time but after meeting a girl (MPDG characteristics) while out one night I have felt like doing nothing but playing the sentimental passages of Rachmaninoff and going to the gym and consuming enough calories to get bigger. I feel empty.
>>20369825>(including bell-end)thanks for clarifying, whenever a guy measures his dick i always wonder, is he measuring it all the way to the end or is he measuring it as if he were missing the entire head of his penis for no reason? there should really be a regulatory commission
>>20369799What's up.>>20369807Yeah, I just really wanted to say it. That is the major thing that matters to me in life.>>20369813I don't know. I have faced heartbreak before but it will be worth it if I am able to meet new people with optimism and the mindset of serving and helping others without asking for anything in return. I need to get a job and start college, I am very young. I have a horrible fear that I'll be alone, but I do not believe it.
>>20369396People who charge $60+ for e-books should be lined up against a wall and shot.
>>20369791Is it just a Brenton Tarrant copycat or what?
Does anybody here think modern suits look boring as fuck but at the same time like older styles of suit? I like basically almost anything from the '20s and before but I really dislike the modern style.
im sadand unhappy
Holy based IoT episodes lately
I slept on Sigrid Undset. Read her now!
>>20369895No, I know enough about suits to know plenty of modern suits would pass just fine in the 1910s
>>20369791Its unironically a fedpost
>>20369834Counting the tip is basically cheating, let's be honest.
>>20369921>There's a Polidori episodeNice
>>20369892yes, but it's twice as long and this kid starts by saying he's influenced by Tarrant and half of it is memes and reposts. and then you realize he isn't even a kid but a 19 year old.>>20369931so a fed knew someone was going to shoot everything up and decided to make a 180 page shitpost instead? cmon now.
zoomers talk to me in the street and ask me for my instagram. I don't have one.
>>20369990Honestly things are so crazy now I wouldn't be surprised at weird shit like that anymore. Between the freaks shooting random strangers and the ideologues trying to use them for propaganda, anything is possible. The world just going to get uglier and uglier. Move to a small town ASAP and raise kids who aren't on drugs or social media. Try to hold on for dear life to any kind of normalcy and keep human decency alive at least in little pockets.
>>20370054>Move to a small town ASAP and raise kids who aren't on drugs or social media. Try to hold on for dear life to any kind of normalcy and keep human decency alive at least in little pockets.And what, work at the local Dollar General? But I agree...remote work and rural living is the best bet for those who can pull it off.
>>20370054small towns just delay the inevitable plus drugs and social freaks exist in every corner of the world. you need private property in your name along with the capital and social reputation. i just don't have any of those things right now.
>>20369990The guy is a total retard. He threw his life away because of memes. Its pathetic really
>>20370054Small towns have extremely bad drug problems
>>20369929Really? Personally I haven't seen to many suits similar to picrel.
>>20370122agreed and if people really are this mentally damaged, then it seems clear to me that the technology and theories behind what's driving humanity is just lightyears ahead of the people using it. between this retard and all those wolf of wallstreet wannabes that an heroed because cryptocurrency crashed, feels like everyone is throwing their life away because of memes. even elon musk cracking 'owning libs' jokes on his shitty app in the wake of all this is just wildly in poor taste.
Tranny Jannies have been acting up lately, I gotta say. We might need to halve their pay if they keep on acting like this.
>>20370240Its so weird to see. I had my own /pol/ phase and I can tell you it was caused by social alienation. I have to wonder what this guys problem was. He was in an engineering program and a member of engineering clubs in high school. He says it began during the pandemic. So my armchair speculation is that his social isolation is responsible for his mental condition. Something about internet use detatches people from reality. The tangible, physical world is divided from a pure mental existence which takes place online. The purely mental being, divorced from it's other half develops a bitterness which it then tries to bring back into physical reality. It's almost like a desperate attempt to reconncect with the physical.
tonight is the last night of my 3 week bender (i start my new job on monday)i think my friends want to score some coke but to be honest i just want to take it easy. just have a couple of drinks and smoke some weed. its been a long, crazy, and expensive 3 weeks and im kind of glad its over after tonight.https://youtu.be/9RkYvJRKpsA
>>20370295i scroll the catalog and i see one magic thread but with blavatsky instead of guenon for a change. then that eastern mysticism spammer who is probably an unemployed guy who just finished a worthless grad degree in eastern mysticism studies has his one containment thread. then many threads of random books and authors, hell there's even one hitler thread for chuds, i'm sure there's a fantasy thread for kids that into dragons and shit, there's something for everybody, but nobody is totally overrunning the place with bullshit. seems good to me, can't complain, t b h.
I think the concept of a suburb has the potential to be quite wonderful. It doesn't need to be the sprawling sort of quasi-urban thing which most American suburbs are.Suburbs are where urban and rural living should collide. I envision a place where manufacturing, farming, and comfortably large housing all exist. I think it would be an ideal thing in ecological, social, and cultural terms. How do I make this happen?
>>20370333My brother is an occultist and he can barely keep up with basic theology. Ocultism is retarded
>>20370430how can any place where u have to drive 20 minutes to buy a slice of pizza be ecological? your pic is just a community garden in a city. these already exist everywhere. go outside sometime.
>>20370449>how can any place where u have to drive 20 minutes to buy a slice of pizza be ecological?Well, for starters that wouldn't be the case anymore. But it would localize manufacturing and farming, so goods are not traveling to people anymore.
>>20370436oh it's definitely retarded, but in the interest of preventing creeping censorship they have to be allowed as long as they can find a book to talk about and keep it to one thread.

I just wasted 4 years of my life as a ZOGbot. What should I use my GI bill on? I have no real preference but would like to have a career that gets me away from other people as much as possible.I had a 3.0 GPA in high school, if that makes a difference.

>>20370230Literally the first image when I image searched "Pierre Cardin suit". Cardin is responsible for the weird ass suits you know from The Beatles, so it's not even like I picked a designer known for sticking to historical styles; I picked one known for being, if anything, futuristic, with a very heavy mass market focus to the point of market domination in some regions.
>>20370504my uncle was in the army during nam but i don't think he ever saw combat just did mail room bullshit, came back did a couple degrees including russian lit and some forestry type shit i forgot what it was called, but in the end he just worked at the v.a. washing bedsheets. maybe he had some weird guilt thing for never fighting idk. he had a sick collection of operas on vinyl.
>>20370567i'm a very sweaty man i just don't know how i could deal with suits especially in the summer give me some suit pro tips
>>20370574They make linen suits too, not just wool. You can also get heat regulating wools which keep you warm in summer and cool in winter, or go full Yakuza and get a silk one. It depends how often you have to wear a suit, but if you have a job which requires them, a good tailor will make you look professional by choosing materials appropriate to your needs and not just a cut flattering to your shape.
>>20370593I mixed up warm and cool here, in case that wasn't obvious.
>>20370593my job doesn't require suits but it seems like the guys who overdress in slightly gay suits get promoted while people who wear office casual or jeans get nothing.
>>20369396I'm trying to read Nicomachean Ethics right now and I simply don't understand it. Am I a dumbass?

Does anyone else get lost in their own ideas, only to realize that your skills are nowhere near high enough to present the abstract concepts in your head? I've been coping by reading the works of accomplished authors with similar tastes. Bittersweet.

Choice is a sieve: selection from items of a list of possibilities according to some criterion. The identification of choice as the liberating operation of cognition is the biggest mistake in the history of Western thought. The problem of free will is solved with the realization that we don't have freedom OF the will, but freedom FROM the determination of the will, and this ability is granted by our ability to question. While choice is the selective aspect of cognition, questioning is the mutagenic: by following lines of inquiry we can arrive at new experiences and options to choose from. The question mark is the true symbol of freedom, a fact that is confirmed in the Western philosophical tradition which began with methodological questioning.
>>20369605This is the face of current /lit/, that nobody really tries to think outside the box and everything not understandable at first glance is either "schizo", "lowwit" or "pseud"Here is the simplification: humans see the world as entities, how do you know that those entities are "reality" and not just the way people make reality intelligible to them. What is the pretheoretical background of the consciousness of entities, and thus also the background to every philosophical question (is there a mind separate from the body, does God exist, is the red vase in front of me a hallucination), how do we get to understand the being of entities, and what is being? Thats why Nietzsche is above Husserl, because Husserl never asked these questions; his philosophy starts with the consciousness of entities, not with the conditions that allow this consciousness in the first place

Often times I regret caring too much about someone. You devote your time listening to them, doing your best in helping them and making them feel better, feel better seeing them happier, you cast your problems aside and talk about theirs in hopes it would lift their mood all the while expecting nothing in return... except, you do get something in return, just not as beautiful as you may think.You will be ignored for hours, or days even, only for them to hoist petty excuses and then seemingly only talk to you out of spite and guilt. The guilt they carry is that you don't mean much to them, but they feel morally obligated to treat you with slight kindness as not to come off as a total douche. A merciless cunt, if you will.In my case, it's a recurring pattern; one that's been going on for almost ever. Every friendship formed is unilateral, on my behalf and only my behalf. I do hate the fact that I have grown to be just like these people, cold and uncaring.
It's gotten so Extremely Bad here and it will only get worse during the Summer. Get out while you can. I'm going to Twitter.

>>20371269it sucks to remember how every relationship you've ever had was one-sided.

>>20371240I missed you
>>20371307what i need to do is lurk a book, i hate how the urge to socialize wastes so much of human's time if you're not absolutely vigilant about it
>>20369396I'm unbearably mediocre. I have no passions or long term plans. No social life. No skills. No community. No values. No connection to anything, not even myself. Some savings but that will dwindle fast if I don't keep working, and the only thing I'm fit for are shitjobs. When I was a freshman I'd spend my days in the library just reading nonstop, but now the internet has turned my brain into mush. I barely read anymore and am incapable of thinking beyond a surface level. I have lost my sense of humor too. I used to be the goofy one in the family when I was young. Now nothing affects me one way or another. Like a vacuum cleaner has sucked out all the characteristics that made me myself leaving nothing behind.Now I live at home estranged from my family. There's nothing we hold in common. There's no emotion here anymore.

I was on a date and I had a moment of clarity: the only reason why I'm not a cast off hermit goblin is because I am handsome. I have an extremely odd personality, have difficulty with following social cues, weird movements, terrible ways of showing intimacy, and other mental illnesses. Yet I always manage to attract people as friends or girlfriends. I am not intelligent nor interesting. I don't have any special insights or talents. People don't entertain my ideas because they are good, they don't believe in my potential because I am ambitious.I'm just handsome.

>>20369398it's a strange order. Also, Plotinus, Husserl, Leibniz, and Hegel are very different directions and are difficult to accommodate simultaneously. You only have so much time on this earth and you're unlikely to actually like all of those at once. The person who wrote this list is invested in a religious, esoteric, and probably traditionalist side of philosophy. I'm almost certain they didn't read everyone they named. The emphasis on neoplatonism is unusual. If you like that stuff, go for it, it's awesome, but it's practically a different field altogether compared with Husserl/Heidegger. I think it's better to focus on the basic canon and then figure out a course for what you find more interesting/promising. It's better to chart as you go.Having actually gone through the program and read more than I needed to, here's what the actual basic history of philosophy curriculum list seems to be:Plato/Aristotle, Descartes, Hume, Kant. After Kant - Hegel, Nietzsche. There are spaces between these that can be filled by a number of options depending on interests. Philosophy of religion, existentialism, political philosophy, German idealism, or analytic philosophy.Past that it's sort of an open field, or at least, an unsettled canon. What I mentioned are just the main centers of gravity. They're not my favorite philosophers, they are where the influence and context actually lie. There are spaces between these that can be filled by a number of options depending on interests. Philosophy of religion, existentialism, political philosophy, German idealism, or analytic philosophy. So the "list" is highly variable.Kierkegaard, Schelling, and the neoplatonists are a matter of taste, not for understanding the western canon.And it must be mentioned - Spinoza. Philosophers from completely all sides of philosophy appreciate him. Bertrand Russel and Nietzsche both sang his praises. There are contemporary works of Neuroscience referring to Spinoza. He is a hidden gem in the field.Schopenhauer, like Spinoza, is a wonderful philosophy that should be approached as an experience of its own but not as a necessary step of a curriculum. Sort of the same for Leibniz.As for Husserl/Heidegger... The latter is a close student of the former who more or less supplants him, people like to study Husserl but it's not an essential point. But you shouldn't worry either. Heidegger's philosophy in particular is one you want a long experience of history of philosophy for. And it's pretty annoying to read.But if I were tutoring a future king, personally... Heraclitus, Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Descartes, Spinoza, Hume, Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, William James.
Only in accepting the past can we live in the present and face the future.
>>20371442The fact that you A) have a personality; B) can follow social cues at all; C) can show intimacy at all, means you're still pretty far above other people.
>>20369466that's not what your mother said
>>20371471it is a sign of the end of time in Islam that there will be much killing, and that the people who were killed will be asked what they were killed for and will reply that they don't know, and the killers will be asked why they killed and will reply that they don't know.that last bit is pretty haunting imo.
>>20371525Goatfuckers think this is some kind of profound prophecy.
Do you think you can take over the universe and improve it?I do not believe it can be done.Everything under heaven is a sacred vessel and cannot be controlled.Trying to control leads to ruin.Trying to grasp, we lose.Allow your life to unfold naturally.Know that it too is a vessel of perfection.Just as you breathe in and breathe out,there is a time for being aheadand a time for being behind;a time for being in motionand a time for being at rest;a time for being vigorousand a time for being exhausted;a time for being safeand a time for being in danger.To the sageall of life is a movement toward perfection,so what need has hefor the excessive, the extravagant, or the extreme
I'm on the path to living a very stupid and pathetic life but I do have time to change things. But I can feel myself being beaten down, losing my job in the pandemic and subsequently falling behind all my peers hasn't helped. Anyway I can't let myself fall into the rut you know. If I get comfortable here or convince myself I don't deserve better then it'll become a self fulfilling prophecy. After two years of Ls though it's hard to stay optimistic but you just gotta keep fighting I suppose. What else is there to live for anyway?
>>20369895i like italian suits because they're flashy and remind me of gangsters>>20371525i grew up in a muslim family and they literally called anything they didn't like the kids doing a sign of the end times. listening to music, getting an ear piercing, etc..also "butterfly" is back and shilling 2 pop economists, a keynesian and a silverbug, because why not i guess
I really need a job
>>20371525There are many other signs of the end times in Islam that the modern age fulfills.>usury will be prevalent>tall buildings will be constructed>women will work alongside men>men will be like women and women will be like men
>>20371495>Plato/Aristotle, Descartes, Hume, Kant. After Kant - Hegel, Nietzsche.Yes we already know academia is retarded. We see this "canon" all the time and it's nothing interesting. They are ranked by "importance" rather than intellect and philosophical abilitiy. >not for understanding the western canon.Some of us are interested in understanding the world, not the canon. Your lists are very bad.
Women are fun. Have sex with them.
>>20371562sex is disgusting.
>>20369675>it's just retarded zoomersThe average /lit/ poster is under 22 years old, so barely teenagers.

>>20371582>le funny women video so goofy lol sex xDNo
>>20371606>high test is being an incel who posts women webms on 4channel over the weekend
>>20371606Im not interested in sex outside of relationships and I've never been in one.
>>20371606I don't see the point in companionship with a creature who has no worth outside of a hole between its legs. I can masturbate with no effort or expense and then move on with my day.
>>20369396Nothing ever happens. I have been stuck in the same place for around 6 years, the only difference is that now I'm older and lonelier than before, and everytime I've tried to change things something out of my control ruins it and I end up in the same place again.
>>20371629then try harder
I was offered a pretty well paying job and I fucked it up again. self confidence is in the shitter
>>20371638How did you fuck it up?
>>20371647didn't respond that I was interested in a timely manner
>>20371561Frankly, you don't have a clue what academia is or isn't. Philosophy academia is as many things as philosophy is.Now what I just described is not an institutional narrative. It's where the influence is. As in, pick your favorite philosopher, and look at their fucking citations.>Some of us are interested in understanding the world, not the canonHonestly, if you're exempting so much as half that list, you are at odds with pretty much any philosopher you're likely to name. It's hard to realize this if you go on imageboards to pretend to read philosophy, instead of reading philosophy. There's a density of interconnection that is concentrated on these names. My only guess as to how you could end up with a different impression, besides not actually reading any philosophy, is maybe just being a Christian. Maybe your beef with me is deemphasizing Christian philosophy. In which case, philosophy is not your issue.Otherwise, name any philosophers you like. I'll describe their relationship with - and probably reverence for - the people I named.As a final note, you should hold yourself to a standard of honesty and maturity.
>>20371656I'm simply not interested in your input. You seem very mediocre with nothing substantial to say. I read this kind of stuff a million times before, and it's all worthless.

>>20371888You know the answer

My recent craving for kidney pie (thank you English fiction), has made me realize convenience stores are actually not as convenient as we think. I can get a t-bone steak or something similarly overpriced and quite foreign any time of the day, but kidneys I have never seen, despite them being part of our culinary tradition as well. And going to small business butchers is a gamble in more than one way.
The board is still shit because you are all still shit, but the jannies seem to be doing a good job: I can count the number of off-topic threads up right now on one hand.

I just came to let you all know that I wish she was here right now, sitting about two thirds the way down the bed with her back against the wall, fiddling around with her nails or something, with my feet in her lap. I'd worry she was bored and begin to mess around with my feet until she got in a mood to mess around right back. Lazy sunday. I wish she was here. The kind of day where yo uhave a plan for the evening just to give the it any kind of structure at all, where you're reluctant to go when the time comes but then it's alright and you go to bed satisfied, a little tired but full of life. Where without words you find eachother after you've each had a moment to lay down, and everything feels natural and you are both who you want to be. She did her face and perfume for whatever it is you did, her hair is still a little bit set, falling in that kind of lock that htey get from hair spray or something. Everything about her is clear, down to her taste. And all of this exists already, with my feet in her lap, in her boredom. It's a good day. I wish she was here.

>>20372118The loss of virginity is girl's most intense memory of her life. She'll claim it meant nothing to her, but the opposite is true. The hymen breaker stays in her mind forever. I know it hurts but it's true, I've had the same issue with my first gf.
aaaaaaaaaaaa how can everyone in this thread be such a pathetic fucking asshole
>>20372118I couldn't get over this and realized I would rather be alone than be with a girl who had done anything sexual with someone else, so I stopped trying to date or anything like that.
>>20372118Do girls think the same?
>>20372245No. Women desire men who are desired by other women, so a man having sex with other women shows them that he has a higher value.
>>20372245>>20372249Conversely, if a man has not had sex it shows them that he has a lower value since other women have not desired him enough to have sex with him. This one is on a scale related to age, as it does not really apply to adolescents, but the older you get without having sex the lower your value becomes until it becomes an active repellent force.
years ago, someone somewhere posted that ”frenposting” was not merely a thing that certain anons engaged in to simulate a goofy, chummy atmosphere, but that beneath all the cute frogs one could discern a wignat dogwhistle. it seemed silly at the time, but based on the current ads on here we can conclude that he was right all along
>>20372280>adsFuck off phoneposter
>>20371909well your experience is insufficient, there's more to jobs than what you've mentioned
>>20372280Here I expected something like constructive criticism about how faggy it gets around fren posters. No they're self aware unlike this shill post.

>>20372330oh i understand it just fine, ”fren”
>>20372360Go ahead and explain how frenposting is white nationalist.
>>20372310Final conclusion in this case would be the sum of multiple experiences, as the question "which career is the worst/best" doesn't have one unique and direct answer. Any career choice one might think about has people that praise it and people that belittle it, and reasons would be numerous.I provided my experience, I can't do more than that.
>>20369825>six inchesSame, to be honest I gave up on sex, maybe I'll get a whore someday. Women have become completely unhinged and spoilt by Chad dick - had sex with 3 girls in my life and 2 of them openly expressed disappointment with my 6x5.5 dick. What the fuck is wrong with you, sluts? It's a perfectly normal dick, not my fault you got ruined by tinder thundercocks already.
kek I was just warned and had my posts deleted for calling someone a tranny and saying they spam threads (they do). New janny is activist modding the board and still sucks at it anyway, great combo.

>>20372761>>20372748These are at least somewhat understandable, I don't agree with banning for them either but at least it's established that 1 in 10 gamer word posts are going to result in a ban when the mod decides to do his once a year visit to the report queue. The mods are known for having a hate-on for /pol/ posting and let's be honest, often when someone is posting infographics they are posting 10 at a time and derailing threads, so it's not always on topic, and the mods are too lazy to check context.What pisses me off more is new jannies erratically enforcing their pet peeves (>>20372752 is probably right and it's a literal tranny) while not improving the board at all.

i really don’t understand what atmosphere the anons going around calling others trannies are trying to establish here
>>20372786If you're trying to establish atmoshere try reddit
>>20372786One in which there are no trannies here.
>>20372786It's not just shitflinging. Post any remotely non-positive about trannies and hot pockets will delete and then run away after everyone in the thread starts calling him out for being a schizo tranny(redundant I know).
>>20372782I never said it's excusable, I said I don't support it, but it's understandable because it's been established for many years. Mods here used to ban people just for saying they were conservative or making a misogyny post, trust me, it could be worse. /lit/ has been relatively self policing in recent years and it has worked fine in my opinion. I think the no racism rule is retarded, only off topic derails of any kind (whether /pol/ or simps spamming their waifus) should be deleted.>>20372786Trannies are a well known invasive species so any intelligent community tries its best to keep them out. Not only do they twist everything into tranny shit eventually, tranny shit only attracts the worst kinds of terminally online social media addict failures with borderline personality disorder in the first place, so if you are attracting a lot of trannies you are guaranteed to be attracting freaks and losers who will lower the quality of discussion.

I think that the best way for those of us who lament the current state of the board to improve its quality is effortpost much more often. There’s no reason to believe that the jannies will suddenly become competent, so the only real path forward is manually improving the average post quality. The more people make thoughtful, educated posts the more the culture of the board will change. Would take a long time to be sure, but it’s better than doing nothing at all.

Now realizing this, how exactly does one live life knowing humans treat me like shit just for being ugly. Good/Bad does not exist.

>>20373046>>20373054If you want to actually do something, make a thread that isn't terribly lazy and that invites participation, then keep it bumped. Terribly lazy threads are ones in which you only post "worth it?" or "damn this shit slaps" or something else retarded. If you post a Boethius thread post it with something of substance about the actual contents of the Consolation, or at least a quote and some commentary. Don't treat every thread like a fucking Twitter post. If you do this consistently, and keep these threads bumped, the front page will become boring for low attention span faggots and trannies who are only looking for culture war shit to post in.

Sometimes, when a sudden and uncalled for feeling of joy, or happiness, or deep contentment that can be found, for example, in reaching an end of a surprisingly good book or seeing a particularly beautiful arrangement of clouds overwhelms me, I look for an outlet for this emotion. There isn't any. I've left myself none.I've imprinted into my mind that no aspect of me matters, and I dare not to project a piece of myself onto any part of the world, in any form. I'm spending hours typing out post on anonymous forums and never hitting submit. If you're reading this, then for once I actually did it. The madman.
