I would like to think you were too, but from personal experience, everyone I run into is in the lower end of the bell curve. Its not just girls, most guys I meet are stupid as ****. I dont know any intelligent people. I just know one guitarist who is pretty good and knows a few things about life, I know my drummer who is fairly talented at drums, and thats it. It makes me horribly depressed to know that there isnt anyone to talk to that will make me smarter.
Not even. Dude got hit by a train. Daytripper took it the hardest. Poor guy was so distraught, he actually started logging in on Kensai's account to post for him.
Honestly, I think the UG community is a bit more evolved and mature than your average internet community.
People have this 'good old day's mentality. The only thing I miss is the activity. The Pit used to have 3 or 4 times the amount of users, and it was great and threads were usually always fresh. However, with that, you had a bunch of idiots and idiot posts.
There were plenty of threads people made just to share a youtube video, and the first few posts would be total reddit-core like "OMG that's epic!" and "hahahaha WIN."
I think what's happened is that our community has thinned and matured. There's a rotation of different inside jokes every community has, and I think you see enough people often that you can sort of discern a personality. I also don't really mind all the bit Official and Only threads, especially the MLP containment thread.
With the exception of activity, pretty much every part of the community is better now than it was 5 or 7 years ago. The most popular thread on this site used to be that giant Demotivational Pictures post, and the content of which is totally regrettable in hindsight.
What happened to the dude who had the mom who shat on the floor and blamed it on the dog or whatever? I miss that guy.
Don't son me you dirty 07'er. I ate noobs like you for breakfast. That's why you will not see many 07ers around.
We all got a bit gayer
Happy coincidence, I just finished this a few days ago for class. Shit's great. Way more profound than I thought it'd be for an alternate history thing
Haven't seen you in a while
Spend your time applying to jobs to get out of your mom's basement
Yeah they all ran away with the Pear and Icy Hot.
Only thing that has really changed is that there are less people now so they all think they can be assholes to each other, then they cry and complain when someone gets banned or decides to leave.
A little snarky, a little bored. Great combo.
Yay 2007 master race.
Actually only 2007ers have posted so far.
You'll fit right in.
Any thread about terrorism or being mean to women.
you mean a lot less neckbeards? this place was ****ing awful 5 years ago
Buy some Spice. I'm gonna try some tonight.
Then obviously being in a specific party doesn't mean anything.
People are still Republican with the same beliefs those men had. But no, CNN said they're racist... so they have to be!
I wonder why Dr. Martin Luther King called him self a republican then. And why did Mr. Abraham Lincoln abolish slavery!?!?
Those damn republicans don't believe in these ideologies!!! GODDAMN THOSE LIES!!
Democrats are just as racist and bigoted at times. They are often the party of "no" and mistrust also. And don't stereo type Christians, because even Christian disagree with each other.
Look I am not a loyaltist Republican at least not any more. They have proven to be as corrupt and nannying as any other to me.
But, many Republicans see it as more "caring" to allow someone to stand on their own rather than be perpetually reliant on government. And what do Democrats do for the "poor" more often than not? Set it up so the "poor" stay poor and reliant on them, thus insuring a continued loyal voting base. You know just because someone is "wealthy" doesn't mean they got that way by beating down on everybody else. Some got that way by hard work, and is it fair to bleed them because?
There are greedy people who are poor, there are greedy people who are rich. As are there good people either way also. It isn't all black and white. There isn't a political party of "good vs evil".
As I have listened to certain Democrats/liberals while some are more interested in political party loyalty than anything else, I have opened or changed my stances sometimes about some points they make depending at least on judging them on a individual level. Try doing the same toward Republican/conservatives, because even they are not all the same.
There is no one political party that has a monopoly on truth.
Hope this doesn't turn into a political partisan thread but I had to respond to this....
Well all I'm saying is I'm sure the liberal population has its fair share of racists, homophobes, and sexists. To say they don't exist is pretty ill-founded in my opinion.
Edit: I don't mean to twist your words, so I'll reword that.
To say they are few is...
Well a few of those can pretty much be seen by votes on bills and such, but much of that is just voting within partisan lines (of which democrats are equally guilty of). The opposing women's rights thing is just ridiculous though.
Oh really? That's a pretty bold statement with little to no evidence.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a liberal, but I don't know if that's a fair assessment.
I'm sure this is all factual and not stereotypes you got from watching the Daily Show.
You are going partisan in politics, while Republicans are guilty of that at times, Democrats are equally so, Democrats are not the party of love and equality they portray themselves as(or try to).
Those programs are expensive to the point that the country doesn't bring in enough money to pay for them. Without them, one could invest the money his or herself and make much higher dividends. Conversely, one could spend the money on hookers and blow. After all, they worked for it, they earned it, why take it from them?
The prices for shipping a package with USPS is about the same as shipping with UPS. That is, until you factor in the tax money that goes to USPS.
You're right, we can't all afford public schools. The reason we can't afford them is because demand is low since there's a "free" school you can send your kids to. If there was no public schooling system, schools would be forced to compete with each other for business. This would drive prices down. Supply and demand. Economics 101.
The reason health care is so expensive is the demand is high, but because of government regulation between states, the supply is low. Also, every time you see a doctor, you're using the time of a man or woman who dedicated at least 16 years of his or her life to treating you. As far as pre-existing conditions go, if you owned a hot dog stand and you offered a $10 all you can eat hot dog special, would you let a bus-full of competitive eaters frequent your establishment? Nope, and I wouldn't either because it's my business and I can serve whoever I want to serve. Or I can close my business down and move to Aruba if I want.
I don't mean to stereo type the younger generation , but the Democrats are masterful at portraying themselves as the more "caring" "more equal" "more fair" more humane". And beyond those that just buy into it no matter their age, the younger you are the more you may believe it because it sounds more idealistic without questioning the details of it. So of course "health care for everybody!" slogan is going to appeal. Who cares how, as long as it becomes.....because the other side wants to starve and leave you sick and homeless. "Vote for me, give me power because I care about you"......
Don't trust any of them (politicians or parties) before listening to both sides, before looking at the potential bad that can come from what they say they will do, don't just believe in what they "say". They all through slander and lies to promote themselves and you got to try to weed through the bullshit to come to some sort of conclusion. Most people don't want to bother to try.
It always peeved me that MTV and media and artists were or are often openly one sided toward reaching to the younger, MTV basically became a hack for the Democratic party.
Funny you should mention that, Democratic Senator Dennis Kucinich proposed an amendment to the bill which would do exactly that, but was stripped (along with a lot of other things) due to fears over the Republican response.
