Watch out for this type of person. The whiner, malcontent, sickly type, etc. Almost all of them are textbook narcissists, constantly on the make looking to guilt trip others into doing shit for them. There is no winning with these people, no "one good turn deserves another" or anything like that. They will always be on the receiving end of favors and they never give up, you can never relax around them without suffering the consequences because of their massive and unreasonable sense of entitlement.
Heed this warning, this kind of person is easy to sniff out once you're aware of what to look out for and if you aren't on the lookout they'll get you like some kind of predatory leech because their persistence.

When hanging out with people, I try to talk, but most people just give rapid-fire responses to one another. Whenever I try to say anything, the conversation has already moved on, or nobody gave me enough time to say something. Sometimes, people even talk over me.

Yeah, I'm so quiet. Maybe if you gave me the opportunity to talk, you'd hear what I have to say!

It especially sucks when you're with 2 other people. At first, they try to include you in the conversation (even though they do the things I mentioned before). But eventually, they just give up on trying to talk to you, so you end up just being an observer to a conversation between two people.

Or sometimes people will put you on the spot and say "why are you so quiet?" What are you even supposed to say to that? What do they even expect you to say? That's like the one time people will stop talking and listen to you. But when you're put on the spot like that, it's hard to find something to say.

Anyone had any similar experiences?

Point out to me immediately where I complained about people not wanting to talk to me.

Today I was talking to someone it was clear that they didn't understand what I was talking about, and they proceeded to explain something really simple that I already know. I just gave up trying to continue talking about it after that, since it was clear that nothing I said was getting through.

I'm the loud one who annoys others with my useless talking.

No really. I very rarely meet people who only discuss boring stuff I'm not interested in. Maybe I'm interested in to many things.

I only noticed that people always change topics when you have something interesting to tell but I think that's a point of few thing, maybe I did often enough switch to topic to something I wanted to talk about.

Maybe I just was luck mostly meeting people I want to talk to.

That's the worst and it's almost never by people who actually understand what they're trying to baby you on either. It'd be a lot less annoying if the people who acted that way actually had a reason to, but sometimes people try it and even condescend with an incorrect understanding of said basic principle.

Everything always has to be dark and gritty and violent. It's fucking depressing.

This world is such a horrible fucked up unfair miserable place filled with pain and suffering and injustice everywhere. While you're reading this a dozen people are probably being raped and murdered, someone's watching a family member die, someone's dog might have been run over, someone just got sold into slavery, who knows. There's so much lying, cheating, stealing, and corruption everywhere on this little green and blue rock of ours. We're on this earth for such a short period of time, and during that time we struggle to make the best of what we've got. This while uncaring people try to make life worse for us each step of the way. There's nothing we can do about this though. This is just how things are and will always be.
I want to try and not think about it, to take my mind off that stuff and relax without thinking about war and crime and murder for a minute. Seems like the logical thing to do. Yet as horrible as this world is, most people can't seem to get enough of it. From news covering all the most recent gruesome crimes in the area, to tv glorifying more crime and violence. The most popular movies making a spectacle of violence while games let people act it out. Sure sometimes these things might have interesting stories to them, stories of perseverance, good vs evil, or that can pull some emotion out of you. They have their artist merits to an extent in some cases, but that's all people seem to like, Violence, and lots of it. When it comes to anime, the small amount of CGDCT fans out out there for instance is nothing compared to all the massive amount of people who refuse to watch anime that isn't filled with tons of action and fighting like your dragonballs or what have you. If there's no action, people get bored of it or in the case of things that are cute/moe can get angry and hateful even.

Whenever something cute and wholesome gets popular, there's likely a big twist behind it. Be it cute cartoon animals mutilating each other, muppet style youtube vids being philological horror, magical girl anime that turn out to be dark and violent, dating sims that are gruesome horror games in disguise, slice of life anime that turn out to be zombie filled survival horror. Stuff tha

It's not violence in particular, but rather a general lack of satisfying problem solving. Working away at the same task like a robot everyday isn't exactly mentally stimulating. I find the most pleasure in dealing with mathematical or scientific problems, violence is certainly one thing that can entertain though. I just feel that as a whole humans like to have puzzles to solve, and without that conflict we are bored.

I often think what I would do differently, if I had the chance to go back in time. Then I remember the times, when I had friends and we hung out in the streets, fooling around or playing games and later drinking beer, breaking stuff or scuffling with each other.

After school everyone went his own way and changed quickly. Few months after graduation I couldn't relate to my once best friends anymore and they had no interest in me either. I went to uni, while they got their job, car, gf and phone and didn't even try to choose a topic, that wouldn't exclude me from conversation.

Nowadays I meet now and then with a former school mate and fellow student back from uni. I got him into anime long ago, so we have that shared hobby, however I don't feel like we are close friends, even though we know each others porn preferences.
In my good days, I have been a quite active guy, getting outside, doing sportsy stuff, adventuring in the woods or exploring urban ruins, but since I lost all my friends, who liked doing such things too, an important part of my social circle has been missing.

How do adults make friends, not acquaintances, colleagues or bedroom prey, but real friends, with whom you can share great experiences, giving you something to talk and laugh about in the future? I might just have to grow up already.

Meet people online basically is your answer. People you meet in real life are gonna be too occupied with their jobs and are more often to be the type to have 'grown up' and to somehow find enjoyment or whatever people take in that. You're in prime territory for people who give a crap about all else other than work after all.

How can you be a hikikomori without income? I hear that most don't have jobs so it confuses me. Do you guys just live with your folks or what? I try to be a hikikomori but I still have school and my sister is taking up our room most of the time.. So I don't really understand some of it, I guess.

Despite you didn't actually state it, but since it seems to be a trend here to misappropriate the term... Moriko Morioka is not a hikikomori, but rather a NEET (elito neeto, as she says it). While she has obvious social anxiety due to her seclusion, she doesn't have that much issue with going outside and even enjoys engaging in social interactions in crowded places as shown repeatedly.

That aside, working from home as a hikikomori is very hard because of how few of these types of jobs are. Been looking for such opportunities for years.

Good point, very true. I just meant similar in that it's purposefully saving up to drop out of society. This is the route I took.
You are also right about working from home being very hard. I think a good idea is to diversify your income sources as much as possible. I don't personally do it but I hear people can do pretty well from cryptocurrency trading, so that might be worth looking into. You can also resell stuff, there's a guide somewhere about buying things from chinese sites and selling them on ebay for profit, without it ever going to your house. If you have specialist knowledge or skills you could probably turn that into money. Another option is creative stuff, if you build a little fanbase you can set up a patreon or ko-fi and make a little extra there. This could mean music, art, fanart, writing, blogging, reviewing, youtube, streaming etc. If you work hard it's possible even though it takes time and work, I make a little that way. Finally there's things like mturk which are essentially slave wages for a westerner but if you live in the 3rd world that much money can make a difference.

What I mean by this is, say you go to a few irc channels/chat rooms or even places like discard or what have you. You get there, and either you are treated like the odd one for being there, or the place is dead or hardly any activity with plenty of people lurking there anyway. I see this shit everywhere, and it pisses me off to no end. What's the point of lurking in a channel and staying there if you only check back every five years to say a few words and fuck off again for another? It's just so lame, I find a place where people are supposed to be talking about something I am interested in as well, so I join and am usually greeted by scarce talk even if I try to start conversation in a normal way. Why are so many places dead pieces of boring shit? Why are so many people such annoyances to try talking with?

It's intrinsic in such platform.
>it pisses me off to no end. What's the point of lurking in a channel and staying there
If you are connected through a desktop client, what difference does it make if you have an extra channel open? It's not like people open IRC just to lurk. That aside, people don't owe you their attention. You're not entitled to being interacted with because you joined a chat room, even if it makes no sense to you.
>Why are so many places dead pieces of boring shit?
A lot of IRC channels, forum communities, etc. are mostly vestiges from years ago, where people who still join or lurk do so out of routine, nostalgia, occasional reminiscence or even off-chance of encountering someone they interacted with in the past. Therefore, the degree of activity is vastly reduced from what it used to be. For discord the issue is different; since as a platform is designed to maximize circlejerking and prioritize identities over topics, people will naturally gravitate to communities that allow them to have their identities grow, or exploit them for attention, making the average lifespan of a channel incredibly short in comparison to IRC, so you're bound to find dozens if not hundred+ channels related to anime that are now either deserted or transformed into a clique's hideout.

I see your point here, and now I am realizing that my post came off a bit differently than I intended, which is my fault. No point is good unless it is explained properly. It isn't very often that I visit random channels that I've never been to. I sometimes see one mentioned somewhere and decide to check it out. What I am annoyed by, that I didn't explain very well, is the common trend I see of egotistical bs. As in, people not responding to a simple question or treating one in an otherwise unfriendly manner on purpose. I am taking those things I described and viewing them as that. I understand that there are older communities where people don't talk so much anymore or lurk out of habit or what have you, like you said, but it seems to me that isn't the case with every channel. I don't expect to get social interaction every time I go some place and order people to talk to me or else I flip out and go crazy, it's that it is rare for anyone to even care. For example, if someone joins a channel and asks a simple question related to the community or topic around it, any reasonable person would expect that sooner or later, even after a few days someone would see that and bother to respond (so long as the person who asked is still there and the question isn't stupid). Of course there are places where people legitimately don't look and don't check, for the reasons you mentioned which really I hadn't thought much about, but make some sense. The origin of this is, there are some things I might find one small community for in form of an irc channel, and when I go there and see no active members it seems as if nobody cared about it in the first place. You'd think at least one other person would. As for discord, I realized a while back the platform was crap in more ways than one (namely the identity part as you said, more egotistical bs) and it should be treated that way as anyone reasonable wouldn't be using it as their platform of choice in

I just want to talk a bit about this phrase which I am sure some of you have seen tossed around lately. This I think is the most ignorant, moronic, and backwards thing you could ever tell someone, especially if they're feeling frustrated/hurt about something.
It's the sort of insensitive and uncaring thing people who know nothing about the person or what they are feeling will toss around like nothing and I think it can really hurt people and drive them to commit hurtful actions to themselves or maybe others. If you tell this to someone they might just end up deciding they in turn don't owe the world anything and start lashing out, or take it to heart and hurt themselves because of it. But aside from all that, it's a double standard that goes both ways. If you've ever felt wronged by anyone or anything, then by the logic of this statement and what it represents you forfeit any right to complain about said wrong doing or problems. Imagine you just got mugged and and when you ask for help someone says "The world doesn't owe you anything". Failed that test you studied so hard for? well the world doesn't owe you anything. You just got cheated on? Too bad the world doesn't owe you anything. Imagine grieving over the death of a loved one you wish you could see again just to have someone tell you "The world doesn't owe you anything".
I think this is a cruel thing to say in any context and you're a shitty person if you say it to anyone for any reason.

The world doesn't owe you anything. That's true. But if someone has wronged you, the person owes you, not the world itself. If the person who wronged you in some way says that statement to justify their actions, that individual is a fool.

I'm the opposite. I use it on myself and it makes me feel less crap. The world takes and takes and it's about all it does. Pretending that it's a just place just gets my hopes up. At the end of the day, all you got is number one, expecting anything else to come through is just a crapshoot.

It's not really tactful, polite or even really correct to use it to cover your own crap, but the statement itself isn't strictly untrue when used in the right context.

"The world doesn't owe you anything" sounds like a phrase a baby boomer (who grew up in the wealthiest generation in human history) would tell a millennial who doesn't make much money, after being forced to go into massive debt for college, then do an unpaid internship, then get hired for minimum wage and no benefits. Boomers pretend that the world is just like it was when they were growing up, even though it is in fact vastly different now.

The world doesn't owe you anything, not fairness or justice or happiness, as such is the way of the world. If this is true, then it stands to reason that you in turn do not owe the world fair conduct, equal and just exchange, or happiness. To owe, to be owed, and to have a set of rules for the benefit of one party, is something that must go both ways in a relationship between entities, or not at all. If the world and its laws will not regard me, then I shall not regard the desires and needs of the world or its laws. The world can only demand adherence to it's own wishes if it holds up its own end of the bargain, which is, in fact, the promise of just treatment under its care. If it fails to do so, or even refuses to do so, then the contract is voided, and I shall act accordingly with disregard for the world or its laws. You cannot give nothing yet expect to be given something in return.

I owe the world nothing, not observation of its laws nor fair exchange nor just treatment.

Going to college certainly isn't for everyone, and some majors are pretty useless. But many majors lead to pretty straightforward career paths. It's really not as bad as you make it sound, unless someone studies gender studies or art or something. Besides, not all college is university. There's always trade schools, where you can learn welding, HVAC, or something like that.

What this means, in the case of college, is the ability to deal with four years of BS, that you not only do not get paid for but have to pay for yourself out the ass.

>>23647
This is true. I hear all the time about people who go to college, complete their degree, and do the exact same jobs they would be doing had they not gone to college in the first place. The only reason anyone should go to college is if they know for sure that whatever they study will let them go into a job that they know exists (and have the money to pay for it/can get financial aid from govt). Really, that's all it is good for. If all you want is to actually learn things, you can very well teach yourself. Going to school, spending the day in classes, then going back home to do work for those classes while having to be around a bunch of retards all day sounds like garbage to me. The only form of post-secondary education that I've seen that seems somewhat worth it are some trade programs at community colleges.

The other question you have to ask yourself is, even if you did go to college and get a degree that is worth something, would you even want to work at that higher paying job that you'd be able to get? I sure as hell wouldn't want to be a computer programmer or some sort of highly skilled position, that sounds like a pain in the ass. I'd rather deal with less work and get paid less accordingly. Not like many of us have families to pay for or whatever. It's much easier to live on low wages when you've only got yourself to pay for.

I do understand that he could have taken a few steps, such as committing suicide in some other place and have the authorities notify his parents to spare them having to behold the gruesome outcome, but in his defense, just as his parents did not wish to see the scene, maybe he neither wished to be born.

Do you think drinking helps with anxiety and depression, or does it make it worse?

I think it serves a few useful purposes for when you have to interact with people.

Firstly, it calms your nerves. This makes it easier to talk and not be self-conscious.

Secondly, if you say or do something awkward/embarrassing, you can just blame it on the alcohol instead of admitting that you made a mistake.

Lastly, it's useful even if you're the only one drinking, rather than drinking with other people socially. Go to the restroom to open up your hidden flask if you're feeling too nervous.

This area was extremely hot, but the tour moved to a cooler area afterwards.

There were also other things, like horses and a stable, but I didn't take photos of everything.

Sure, people dis Budweiser and think of it as a bad/cheap national brand. But to me, it's a local beer.

It was weird seeing all of the cars in the parking lot with license plates from different states. People really came here as a tourist destination.

Some people think beer is lame, or some activity for "normal" people, but it can really help if you have psychological issues. It's essentially a form of self-medication for many people. It might not be a permanent solution, but it at least helps people cope in the short term.
