Anyone else find it annoying to keep hearing about how millennials are so poor and struggling and can't afford anything? Yet those same millennials would gladly spend $600 every other year for the newest phone, macbook, or trendy gadget? Those same millennials winningly go into massive debt with college fees when they could just not go to college. They blow money on recriatinal drugs, expensive body mods, parties, trips around the world, and overpriced "organic" health food. waste a small fortune on rent when they could live with their parents for less or even free. I propose that Millennials are poor due to stupid life choices and trying to adhere to trendy cultural norms, not due to the poor economy. The problems with the economy are part of the problem, but it is far from the real issue in my opinion.

It's not hard to live on minimum wage or close to it. If you are okay with living humbly, you can even manage to save money. I've done it for a couple years, so it is certainly possible. College can go fug itself. Sure those people like in OP exist, but they are most likely enabled by their parents which causes such behavior. The above poster does have a point, however, purchasing a home is nearly impossible, unless I saved for a many more years or moved to a rural area. Rural sounds real nice to me, but there's a reason living is cheap: no jobs. One can only dream...

Wealth is relative.

I never thought I was poor until I started working in a nice area, then I felt like that moment in Great Expectations when the blacksmith boy goes to entertain the rich girl, and he suddenly becomes embarrassed about his family and appearance, never having known any different.

That's what he gets for being a normal. Being ashamed of not having more unrelated to your own capacity is ridiculous.

I have a hard time believing people that live lavish lifestyles like this actually manage to save a proper amount of money. Seems like it all goes into houses, cars, raising kids, and other spending.

Do you have any traumatic moments in your life you might want to share and talk about? It could be something deep in the past or a recent event. We're all friends here, feel free to let it out.

It's mostly similar to me, but I would say that even a lot of little bullying/teasing in early childhood eventually "collects" and builds up into a worse trauma. The daily grind with early mornings and being forced to sit down at school/work sucks too. Although there was one time that my dad beat me with a curtain rod because I wasn't doing my World Geo project in 9th grade (probably not that uncommon outside of the US and other Western countries), my memories of that aren't that bad but it probably did worsen my overall worldview.

that exact same thing happened to me at a comic con in crystal city virginia around the time the akira movie came out.
i still remember it well enough to tell you that i got an awesome independent version of thor that day, the story told from loki's perspective & printed in black, white and red. a real work of art, someone was trying to make a statement or at least make something that was worth at least the price paid, a rare commodity. i'm not sure what the long term effects were of being laughed at by a roomful of nerds half of whom were in star trek uniform shirts, but i can assure that i'm still an autistic idiot.

When I was like 6 I lied to my parents, looking back it was something real minor, but man did it get to me back then. For weeks I kept thinking about it and kept repeating the same words over and over again in my head like a rhythm.

Honestly, not much. I had the default half-disgust half-curiosity towards critters, natural fear of the dark, the occasional nightmare after a terror / horror film, and got spooked here and there. I didn't even grow up fearing death, to the point I have died dozens of times in my dreams (much to the chagrin of old wives), only to chill out around as a ghost (it's usually boring though). I had never really felt that something was truly dreadful when I was a child, until after watching The Exorcist III, when I was 11 or so, and seeing church porcelain statues opening their eyes, smiling, frowning, etc. I got spooked to hell and back and I still occasionally get the heebie jeebies when I see a creepily-made statue.

and all these year later i'm still too stupid to figure out what to watch out for, fearlessness and idiocy are two sides of the same coin.

The Prominent Australian Death Support Philip Nitschke has unveiled his new development - the Sarco suicide capsule from the 3D printer. The machine has a single and simple aim of helping rationally capable people to get out of the world. The capsule was said to have been developed by Nitschke in Holland. The suicide machine consists of two parts: a reusable machine bed and a detachable capsule that can be used as a coffin. The design for the suicide device should appear free on the Internet and can be anywhere in the world 3D printed and built. To get into the capsule, the lethargic person should complete a questionnaire to assess their mental status and get a four-digit code. Entering the code should open the door of the capsule and engage the user. Inside, liquid nitrogen is used to lower the oxygen content. It should all be over in a few minutes.

That's pretty smart.

This is not. As if a small questionnaire can assess the mental status of a person.

Also it looks like ass.

If you're either left-wing inclined or completely clueless about how this world works, you will never understand this.

In any case, he asked why people are hikki and some of us have replied. I guess that just critisizing and arguiing why this world is utter trash also makes people be racist or something.

Claiming that the opponent in a discussion can never understand based on some assumptions made for whatever reason isn't really a good argument. But I'm fine with ending this discussion.

>In any case, he asked why people are hikki and some of us have replied.
Yes and I replied to that reply starting a discussion that doesn't really belong here. I didn't say the first post was off-topic.

>I guess that just critisizing and arguiing why this world is utter trash also makes people be racist or something.
You guess wrong, also if you imply that I said anything like that, nice strawman.
It's pretty obvious why the posts are racist but I didn't say anything about that. The only problem I have is the thought that an action one does oneself (i.e. leeching off the government) shouldn't be allowed for other people. I don't really care about the motive for that, just calling it out for what it is.

To the mod: Couldn't you have edited it out yourself, if plain text is okay, instead of deleting the post later on? Just wondering.
>> No. 23134 [Edit]

Yeah, that's okay. Feel free to edit again and remove the mod warning as well as the question in the other post and then I'll delete this post of mine and we'll pretend this never happened.
>>23133
>Couldn't you have edited it out yourself
Yes, but people are very sparky lately so I'd rather not edit myself and then get called a fascist nazi and have to lock the thread.

It'd be probably better to leave it for others. It's not in the rules unless you count it as advertising and previous posts with direct links didn't get a warning as far as I know, so leaving it clears things up I think.

>Yes, but people are very sparky lately so I'd rather not edit myself and then get called a fascist nazi and have to lock the thread.
I think you can never make anything right for people who complain about something like that but I understand.

There's nothing to talk about. There was never something to talk about, at least in respect to /so/ because any kind of discussion would be better served in a board where its the actual main topic with people knowledgeable about it. Boards like this are just stupid because they encourage self defeating attitudes and mediocrity, 2 things that got you in this hole in first place. No one here is retarded enough to actually need "advice" and venting becomes addicting instead of helpful. This is why this retard >>20979 is wrong and this place will stay half-dead like its been for years. Unchanging, with the same userbase that has exhausted most topics. But hey if thats what you want who am I to judge? It just seems an obvious contradiction to me to admit wanting more posts yet have that unwelcoming attitude towards new posters.

"He had so much potential." - literally everyone and they would all be thinking about how many great things were left undone because of my premature demise.
I am sorely overrated.

I believe quite a lot of the people I know well would spend the rest of their lives in the colossal shadow they have painted for me, when, in truth, it was all just a matter of perspective.

no one would know except my mom. i never leave the house and i lost all my online friends.

she would remember me as a bad comedian. i do shock humor to her all the time. she's at the point where she doesn't mind my neetdom anymore, she wouldn't remember me as a loser or anything, this is normal to her now.
she'd probably kill herself because i'm the only one that's nice to her. her life is kind of a piece of shit.

Has anime (or other media) screwed with your mind and changed how you think or interact with this world?

I only recently came to a realization that tv/movies/anime has shaped how conversations between people should work in my mind, as I've never really had anyone to talk to offline and that's all I've had to go off of. I find it obnoxious when I do talk to real people, usually because they talk endlessly about pointless crap that doesn't matter, or repeat themselves in different ways a lot. In any sort of media almost everything you see and hear is there for a reason and generally has a point to it. Thanks to this I find myself expecting there to be a point when someone does talk to me offline, only to find there often isn't one. People also take a long time to get their message across, when in tv/film people are generally straight to the point. Needless to say, reality is frustrating.

Ironically, I've encountered people who barely watch any TV/Anime etc who complained that Americans have a tendency to talk very unnaturally. As in, they talk like they are a character of a TV show or something which just reeks of ingenuity to him.

I would have to agree with this. I feel like people's perception is warped by media, this isn't a new thing to say though


I also feel like a lot of people want to make it big in the media to spread some kind of world view or perception, for good or bad. Some of them might be trying to fight the status quo or raise awareness towards things. While other people maybe it's possible they just want to influence people in a way that benefits them or even manipulates society as a whole into thinking a certain way. It's speculation but you can see a lot of signs of stuff like this which is why I'm not the first to make comments like this about the media.
