I need someone to make me feel better about spending several hours a day on forums talking to people. Please tell me if you consider talking to people online "socializing."

If you do not consider it socializing, please do not post because it will make me feel bad.


Thanks, Pit

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

I actually do believe that it is a form of socializing, but those first 4 posts have such a nice build-up this way

sort of. i encounter people with views and experiences unlike my own, and i always find that valuable. the international quality of this forum, with a unifying theme of "guitar" and music more generally, makes it interesting. on the other hand, i have no real desire to get to know anyone here on a personal basis. i'll go months without so much as looking at this site, then come back and post several times a day. hard to explain my relationship with UG, really.

It is socialising, just a very dumbed down form of it.

nah, it's kinda like going to the zoo and watching chimps pull stupid shit. there are some cool people you can meet there but mostly it's just animals trying out different ways of jacking off

Id consider being on a forum most of the time like talking to a neighbor about the weather.

It's 2014, let's stop pretending there's a fine line between reality and the internet. It's become one in the same.

It's not socializing at all. It's in fact the opposite and can be a negative influence in your life if you don't control it. Go talk to real people face to face. That's a skill that will actually get you somewhere.

And what do you suppose effective networking requires?

Definitely not being a "banterful" poster on a forum.

And what exactly does being computer savvy have anything to do with posting on UG?

Most people here don't know shit about computers.

of course it is. honestly that's ALL it is - our bodies aren't even present, we're all just here for the sole purpose of communicating to others


also I think now that the internet has been around for a while we can finally stop calling the physical world the "real" world and just accept that the internet is simply another facet of the world.

I like to think of the internet more like a comedy club. But instead of doing comedy, we masturbate.
Places like the Pit are the backstage area where the "comedians" meet and talk about normal stuff, maybe discuss their craft a little.
And then you get called out again and get back to masturbating.

No, most jobs require that you know how to dial the phone number for your company's IT department.

can we just ban the word "networking" ?

if that is really something you care about, you're more boring than cable television.

It's important to network, that way don't feel alone.

Friendship and masturbation go a long way towards happiness. Until you have sex, then it's friendship and sex. And an empty wallet.
