I expected everything from college kids experimenting to old elitist snobs.
I did not expect the mean of those two.
I dont think you quite get how means work.


If I'd been there, I could have at least said you were drunk, as a get of jail free card.

Hopefully she just assumed; I started drinking at 12:30 and this took place around 6:45.

I am also kind of hoping that she was drunk too, and doesn't remember it at all.

Great,  so all my problems are because I'm lonely.  And I've been regressing to a shit poster because my only friend is in jail.

Boohoo.  I work three nights out of every six and then when I'm not working, I'm studying.  Social life, friends...what are those?

Amazingly, I manage to not shitpost everywhere.

Yeah, but you also have a purpose to your life and a drive to achieve your goals. As far as I can tell, this kid has no goals and hasn't found any purpose or drive in his life yet.

I'm not really sure whether he's trolling or not. But then I figure, if he is trolling, what is he laughing about? "HAHAHA, I tricked Nigel into being supportive and compassionate!"

Yeah, how embarrassing.

Do you know how sometimes, you say something dumb that stays with you with a lingering sense of embarrassment and regret long after anyone who heard it has forgotten? I did that last night. I flippantly referred to my boyfriend as a "fine piece of ass" to a friend of mine I haven't seen for a while. It was supposed to be funny, but I knew immediately that it wasn't funny. She just sort of stared at me, taken aback, and I instantly wanted to retract my comment BUT THERE'S NO FIXING LOOKING LIKE AN ASSHOLE. She politely said "He seems really nice" and I was like "Yeah, he's great!" while dying inside.

An extended interview with former members of japanese biker gangs, wherein they re-tell stories of their youth. Over time, the stories get stranger and stranger, initially in ways that westerners could just attribute to "crazy japan" -- terms in european languages that were appropriated into slang based on absurd mistranslations, custom seat-backs that are so tall that they can brush the undersides of bridges if driven straight-on. Slowly, the stories get increasingly surreal, and eventually, entirely supernatural. A former gang boss talks about the time he saw an exact duplicate of himself wearing a rival gang's jacket, and fought his doppelganger to the death before stealing the jacket and creating an alliance between the gangs. One night when a number of affiliated groups rode together only to become lost, finding themselves in a town seemingly identical to the one they just left but with no people, only a multitude of cats staring at them impassively from every surface. Eventually, one of them explains that the subculture owes its longevity to annual human sacrifices of junior members to tengu, who consumed the intestines of these initiates in exchange for magical protection of members from the police. The interviewer explains that, during the interview, the people he was interviewing seemed to grow smaller and smaller. At the end of the interview, he finds that everything in the room, with the exception of himself and the walls and ceiling, has shrunk to approximately one fifth its original scale. The tiny former yakuza chuckle menacingly as he tries to squeeze himself out of the building through the now tiny door, only for him to find himself surrounded by cats, sitting on all surrounding surfaces, staring impassively at him. He gets into his car and races into the night, only to wake up the next morning, parked, on the breakdown lane of a highway on a completely different island.

Enki, you have some of the greatest ideas for stories.  Just thought I'd let you know.

It's true. He does.

I can't move.  Someone wheel me to the vomitorium.

That's how I felt last night.

Now I am merely being punished by my digestive system for my gastronomical indiscretions.

Speaking of which, have you seen Brene Brown's great talk on vulnerability?

I friggin' loved this one, and I'm glad you reposted it.


Have I mentioned lately that I love you all?  Because I do.

Awwww I love you too, Hoopla! You are awesome and adorable!

Holy crap.  Has anyone explored today's XKCD?

Hint: Go Right.

404. :(

Aww that's really too bad because it's the most fun ever.

American Millennials are far more likely than older generations to say the government should be able to prevent people from saying offensive statements about minority groups, according to a new analysis of Pew Research Center survey data on free speech and media across the globe.

U.S. Millennials More Likely to Support Censoring Offensive Statements About MinoritiesWe asked whether people believe that citizens should be able to make public statements that are offensive to minority groups, or whether the government should be able to prevent people from saying these things. Four-in-ten Millennials say the government should be able to prevent people publicly making statements that are offensive to minority groups, while 58% said such speech is OK.

I find it fascinating that this is the issue you have decided to focus your interest in.

Wait, actually, come to think of it, no I don't.

nothign mayyer ayets everyhting is full of meaning. everything is shit, yet the world is grat in cotnrast. MY ACTIONS ARENT PERSONAL INSULTS BECAUSE THE WORLD ISNT'T MEANING FUL.

life liberty and the pursuit of happyness. no hooves.
Your nihilism bores me.

The affectation of jaded nihilism has been popular for teenagers across millennia.

Yeah... when you think about it the very fact that our culture has enough slack in it to allow the tendency to persist into the 20s, 30s, and even no small number of forty-something folks and onwards speaks volumes about how much actual spare time after subsistence needs living in the "first world" affords people.

I wonder if there's a hard mathematical function to describe it. I'd call it the Jerkoff Function. The more time that one has to read nihilo-porn and jerk off, the more of a nothing jerkoff one becomes, absent other factors.

 :lulz: Please turn this idea into some sort of shareable infographic. Please.
