This thread makes me feel like less of a misfit because I can honestly spew all of my thoughts without worrying about being judged, hurting anyone, or having any confessions used against me.
Its a load off my mind as well as a way of going around my trust issues and probably minor paranoia (which is still not heath, but "keeping things in gives you cancer" [; )

That was awesome to hear Harley. Sometimes I think the XKCD fora are a shining light in the darkness of the internet. The antithesis to 4chan if you will.

And gelsamel I wasn't trying to belittle or trivialize your existence, perhaps my sentiment wasn't very well thought out. I just meant that if you've never felt overwhelmed by life, a little scared by your own existence, and wanted a way out, then there's just a lot going on that you don't know about. Something makes me highly doubt you've never felt any of things.

I've never felt any of those things, but I don't think I'm missing out on much. After all they're just feelings, you can't get any knowledge from those.

I am cautiously optimistic about the future. I really want to meet more people, and today I met some awesome people my age at a show that go to my school. I really want to make more girl friends, though. Of course, I wouldn't mind having a girlfriend either. However, I know now probably isn't the right time for me. I have been getting melancholic and frustrated recently due to, well, several reasons, but I think things will get better.

Yesterday, I started to feel really misanthropic, detached, frustrated, and depressed. Usually, these moods last for quite a while when they come. This time, it passed fairly quickly.

Confession: I've never had a GF or sex, or driven a car or had a job and I don't care, I'm not sure if that is a problem or not (but I don't seem to care if it is or isn't haha). Chalk it up to an acute case of apathy, imho.

Confession: I've made a similar confession before at some time, maybe not in this thread though - I can't remember.

Sean, my dear, there's a reason why the Wizard doesn't give them anything: he doesn't *need* to. That would defeat the whole idea of our lovely adventurers finding their own strength.

Confession: When I was in fourth grade, I had a teacher who had served in Vietnam. He decided that one afternoon, we could write down any questions we had about Vietnam and his experience and he would answer them in front of the class. He made a homework assignment out of coming up with the questions. I was stumped (I didn't know enough about Vietnam to know what kind of questions to ask) but finally wrote down "How does killing people solve the world's problems?"

When he read it, he was utterly delighted with my question and gave me like half the candy in his candy drawer (where he kept those bite-size chocolate bars for when we asked exceptionally good questions or gave exceptionally good answers.) He spent a long time discussing this, and I do remember his answer but won't recount it now, except to say that I'm still not sure whether I buy it. He was so delighted with the question that two months later when we had the parent-teacher-child conference (he liked to involve the kid) he remembered to mention it to my parents and gave me more candy and more of his highest praise then, too.

But I'd gotten the question from a Calvin and Hobbes strip.

I'm sorry, Mr P! It wasn't really mine! You were a good teacher.

Read them order via issue number. Anything like annuals you can skip for the most part, but I'd read them in the same year (That is, read the '77 Annual after reading all the 1977 comics) Often the comic will say "Story continues in Spiderman Annual Blahblahblah! or whatever.

As far as reading the three of them goes, you can do this a number of ways - you can read all the Spiderman ones in order, then X-Men ones, then Fantastic Four. Or you could read all of April 1981's comics, then all May 1981's comics. Either way will work. Of those three titles, Spiderman and Fantastic Four have the most bleed-over, what with both of them being New York-based superheroics. X-Men won't have as much back-and-forth, but there might be some.

Generally speaking, the Fantastic Four comic will say something in there like "Why is Spiderman wearing a paperbag on his head? Check Spiderman issue 75, kids!" or whatever.

Or you can read them in the order of sweetest cover art.

Hope that helps.

I'm back from an evening of having dinner with a big group of friends, watching the new Underworld movie, then playing Katamari/Singstar at a friend's house, and it was all good fun. So why am I in a lousy mood?

I'm always in a bad mood for a reason, it's just sometimes very hard for me to see that reason, so that's what I'm trying to do now. It's weird that I don't know why, though: it feels like I'm trying to figure out why a friend is in a bad mood or something, like I'm detached from this somehow.

Well, hopefully Ender Wiggin will cheer me up before I head off to bed. Time to once again remember that the enemy's gate is down. *reads*

While I've never heard of Ender cheering anybody up, I totally get this. I just re-read it two days ago, and realised how much I'd missed it.

Bah. No way. You know, I don't even think 4chan is mainstream yet. Mainstream on the internet, but not in life.

It's stupid, it's offensive, yes. But it has no capacity for change. It won't corrupt people who weren't going to corrupt themselves anyway. A few pictures of Goatse and Loli, isn't going to tear down society. Anonymous can't even decide on any reall causes besides Scientology to fight. Such a disorganized force won't be able to do a thing to society as a whole.


Confession: I really am an idiot in how I view myself. I can make friends if I try. Why is it so much harder to make friends in real life than online? I just made an awesome friend from an IRC channel, and it was so easy.

Is it just that everyone on the Internet is so easy to get along with, and everyone in this university is too concerned about getting drunk or whatever than talk about serious things with me? Or is it that I don't try at all?

The latter, probably.

I need some more of this motivation. Alas, it is 3:30 AM and I can't do anything about it. All I can do is wake up tomorrow in my usual depressive state. At least I won't have any classes.

Confession: I've spent the past two weeks lurking here trying to pick up the courage to start posting again, and just failing utterly. It's so annoying that I've spent ages trying to find a fora that I might want to post in on a regular basis, and when I do I can't bear the thought of inflicting myself upon all these smart, witty, awesome people. I don't even know why I'm bothering to post this, since nobody here likely cares. I guess I just need some kind of outlet right now, and since I can't bear the thought of bugging my friends or family with any of this I guess I'll just annoy some strangers on the internet with it instead.

Confession: Though its bad and he is severely pissing me off and the manager has seen it (its impossible for him not to as it was directly referenced in front of him whilst he was listening), I'm also kind of glad; I've always had a so called 'arch-nemesis' in each place where I exist. At least now I know who it is.

That's just it, I don't have a copy of the original any more, and I can't remember where it was exactly. Somewhere on Geocities/SiliconValley, is as specific as I can go. Incongrously, I still have the Ultra64 screenshots up to Course 9 (the one with Bowser's sub, I forget the name); you can have those if you like :mrgreen:

I do remember that 100 coins on Course 15 was a pain in the butt; there were only 105 or so in the course, if I recall.

I can bump into the girl I had a crush on when I was 8-- and I did some stupid shit trying to impress her back then-- and can carry a conversation like 'no big deal, i knew you back in the day.' There can be a girl from uni or work that I'm really interested in, but as soon as I realise it's not gonna work out, I can make her disappear from my thoughts in a snap. 'Oops, didn't work out, oh well.' What I'm saying is I don't normally get hung up on girls, or what 'could have been.'

But this one girl... she comes into my work every-so-often, and I loose my shit. I blabber on about god-knows-what until the woman has walked away, and I find the adrenaline's pulsing in my system and it takes a sec before I realise what the hell even happened. I don't even like the girl that much anymore (when I told her I was going to America she asked me if I was going to Disneyland, and I just stared at her like she was a retard), it just seems like residual feelings from long ago that just won't die, because they're beyond rationality.

She's a teacher, and I'm studying to be a teacher, and I hope to god we're never placed in the same school, because I wouldn't function. -Actually, this probably isn't true. I think I just need to spend some time with her so I can internalise the fact that she is a person, and not some perfect creature I once idolised. Even so, this is a problem in my mentalty that I would like to think I'm beyond, but that I'm apparently not. *le sigh*.

You can use punctuation and grammar, and say things nicely.

You can't possibly bug us.

Fess: I've totally pissed today away. Ah, well, it's only work :P

Keep posting! I saw some quote somewhere that made a lot of sense to me. I can't remember it verbatim but it was somewhere along the lines of "it's not your job to decide if what you contribute has merit, it's just your job to contribute." As I'm typing this, horribly ignorant Youtube comments I've seen are popping into my head, so I'm qualifying my position on this statement: I don't think it's saying contribute BLINDLY without thinking about what you are saying, but each person has a unique view on the world and should be shared in an eloquent, well-thought out way, without worrying how other people will take it.


Confession: In the back of my brain I am really, really terrified that fundamentalist Christians are actually right about everything and that there is a hell and I will be tortured there for eternity, even though I try to be a logically and morally good person. I'm afraid that I am automatically screwed in the afterlife because I don't know what I believe in. Which is very strange because neither I, nor my family, are very religious.

Confession: despite posting on the XKCD fora, I am neither smart, witty, or awesome. Feel free to 'inflict' yourself on me! :P

Ok, that wasn't a real one. My real confession is that I asked one of my friends to stop telling me I was beautiful back when I had a boyfriend, and now I'm single I want him to say it again. But I can't think of any way to tell him he can say it without seeming like an attention-seeking camwhore. :(
