Fuck no. I know that my situation isn't as bad as a lot of other people's, but I can't worry about them when they likely couldn't give a shit about my worthless existence. Anyway, this question is about my own happiness, and no, I am not.

I don't think that I could be happy in a world like this one, even with all the money in the world or with a normie life with all the 3D pig bitches that I could want. I'm delusional enough to believe and want a life that's like a stereotypical shounen manga.

Although, to be honest, I'm not sure if someone like me can be happy at all with the kind of person I am. The impossible life I want, everything else that I lack, and whatever it is that it takes to make me feel satisfied with it.

This country is not only financially bankrupt but morally as well. This nation has become a den of depravity debauchery, greed, gluttony and degenerate behavior. Worst part is, people here actually take pride in it. It's a place where bad is good, where people think it's cool to be a trouble making hoodlum. A common saying is that rules are made to be broken. People here have no respect for anything, but of course they'll demand it all the same.

Meanwhile you have this wide spread hug box mentality where everyone is over sensitive and easily offended. you aren't allowed to be mean or say anything hurtful, question anyone's life styles, or really disapprove of anything. The modern day treatment of racism makes a complete mockery of everything people fought so hard for just decades ago. They call this the land of the free in spite of the fact it's economy was founded on black slave labor, the transit system and expansion was built on the backs of Chinese, meanwhile Americans systematically slaughtered the natives to the point of near extinction while destroying their culture and breaking their spirit, turning them into fat drunken drugged up wastes of human lives. Only to then oppress women too in the many years that followed. Land of the free my ass. Used to be racism meant segregated bathrooms or not allowing blacks into schools. Racism was refusing to hire or sell to someone based on their race. Now people call you racist if you ask someone their race, if you don't have x amount of colored people working for you, if you say "colored people" or even say "black people". They want you to say "African American" enough though many black people here have never been to Africa or have any ties to the continent. Used to be it was sexist to not allow women to vote or drive, now you get called sexist for telling a girl she looks good that day. They'll even call games sexist if the girls in them look cute and not fat/ugly like themselves. Just mistaking a person of one race for another will get you labeled as racist, as if to put you in the same boat as kkk members who burn crosses in front of people's homes.

People here are paranoid to insane degrees about anything that might harm their children and baby them to an extreme while banning everything in sight that so much

I can understand political persecution, but why would you want to homeschool your kids? Unless, you live in an area with lots of children, that's like sentencing them to a life of loneliness and NEETdom because they didn't have a competitive environment where their social skills could develop (the most important kind of skills you could have). Which country are you from?

This raises an interesting point, I've heard many people call America a "free country", but what does this actually mean? Sure there's more freedom there than say china or the dprk, but in some ways America is very much not "free", for example government spying programs, legal slavery, censorship etc. There are many other countries that do not do these things, what makes america particularly "free"? Am I just misinterpreting what this phrase means?
>> No. 23276 [Edit]

>Am I just misinterpreting what this phrase means?
You and most Americans lol.
The freedom in this county mainly refers to things such as freedom of religion, in spite of the fact that atheists over the years have been treated with more mistrust and hate than homosexuals, museums are persecuted endlessly, and Christianity is shoved down everyone's throats to the point where "in god we trust" is printed on our money and kids forced to pledge their allegiance to a "nation under good". Our founders wanted a clear separation between church and state, but the relatively modern government ignored that and mixed the two. Yes we have freedom of religion, and people here are free to force that religion (Christianity) on needy starving people in poor under developed countries in exchange for food and aid. Yay freedom!

You've got the freedom of speech, where you need a permit to protest and can be sued for slander. You might have your words censored due to how offensive they are or use of foul language. Say the wrong thing and you might get labeled a terrorist or traitor. The internet helped a lot with this and gave people a voice, but the way big sites are designed now your unpopular opinion will get down voted into oblivion before anyone can read it, or you'll get banned for saying something the corporate slave site admins don't approve of. Generate enough attention and supporters to your cause, and the powers that be will bend and twist it into something else. See how gamergate went from being about paid reviews on games to being an attack on female gamers thanks to the media's manipulation of the truth.

You're free to buy and own land, even though it can and will be taken away from you if the government decides it wants that land. That's not to mention the hefty property tax. One of the most famous events in this country's foundation was the Boston tea party, which was a protest against unfair taxation from Brittan. Mainly referring to not being properly represented in Brittan's political matters. Yet here we are paying taxes on literally every purchase we make from food to b

changed my mind on this. my dad's abuse made me into the man i am today. the man who loves his waifu very much. trauma develops mental illness and mental illness develops strong obsessive bonds with fictional characters.

instead i would go back to the 8th grade alternative school for retards and criminals where I met a kid named Earl and a kid named Abe. these are their real names, not ones made up for the sake of the story. if either of you are here, which is possible since you were both fucked up people too, i am sorry.
i was on a lot of psych meds and my parents had just split and i had no friends and spent my free time outside of school crying and playing video games in the dark and stuffing my fucking fat face with food. and i took it out on people. i beat people up and made people suffer cause i was suffering.
the stereotypes about "bullies are just insecure bigger losers than you!" is 100% fucking true. you were both better people than me.
i think about you two little retards all the time even though it's been a decade now. i respected you both and thought you were cool and i have no idea why i had the compulsion to punch the shit out of you and make fun of you for being poor. i was poor too. i was living in welfare apartments. i'm sorry.
i'd go back and stop myself from being mean to them. their lives were already a piece of shit.

i hope stopping myself from being a bully wouldnt have a butterfly effect and make me have never fallen in love with my waifu.....

Does anyone else here seemingly lack the capacity to care about things beyond some vague sense of liking/disliking? I can't remember a time before my early childhood that I have ever grown very attached to anyone or anything. In brief, I care so little about effectively everything that I could lose or abandon it all without blinking an eye; nothing feels sincerely precious. Similarly, I don't emotionally dislike many things in the same way, though that is of secondary concern to me.
This aspect of myself feels profoundly wrong and inhuman; I don't want to feel like some walking, talking automaton that can only pretend to care about things like a real person. If anyone here has overcame this kind of state, I would like to hear how you did it.

Depressed. doing college part time so I'm taking the degree at a different pace than my classmates. Thinking about a conversation I had with one that mades me happy.
I think "Maybe I should try talking to them next week and make friends"
> Remember it's the last week of the semester and I'll probably never see them again and if I do it'll have been too long to feel as comfortable.
> Every time.
I'm too damn autistic.
But the kind of autist that puts in the effort into not appearing autistic so when I talk, people seem to like me but until I get a good read on their personality I get so anxious and stressed.
So I gravitate towards the quiet kids who open up at the same pace as I do,
And the people who are too friendly and forward right off the bat make me super uncomfortable as I'm quickly trying to figure out what they want from me, but once I've known them for a few months I learn how to roll with it and flow with their specific energy I really like those sort of people.
It's the same either way though. The semester ends right as I've started getting attached to somebody but before I'm close enough to talk to them outside of school or online. I really regret not making closer friends in high school... Only thing I miss about it. I didn't have any close friends but I was socially satisfied making small talk with the same people around me everyday for 4 years.

Tldr: Does anyone have advice for how I can get consistent casual social interactions in my life? Maybe it's asking for too much but it seems like there should be a simple solution like a club or something but that hasn't worked out. that sort of thing is about short bursts of social focused intense socializing once a week. It's too much for me. way too much. You show up and everyone's there to make friends too so someone's going to approach you and ask you all about what your deal is and try to involve you in everything to make you feel welcome and I can't help but freeze up, dissociate until I can find an opportunity to run away and block the memory out. I'm just too damn autistic. School is such a hell hole but until the classes change it's the only place I have tha

Can't help too much really, but the only kind of 'club' thing I'd recommend is trading cards like Magic or something like that. I used to play years ago at this one dingy store on Fridays and while some of the people were friends, people were there to play cards and that's what focused the discussions. It wasn't simply intense socialisation. It didn't hurt that everybody was a grognard too I suppose. That said, this was one specific store from some years ago, perhaps it's different elsewhere/nowadays.
>> No. 23184 [Edit]
I also play Magic the Gathering as well, we mostly just talk about the game and it keeps us busy enough that it isn't too awkward. I am still relatively quiet and no one minds, in a sense I've gotten less awkward over the years.

Draft/Limited is the cheapest format at around $10-$13 a night depending on where you live, and usually that runs multiple times a week too.
>> No. 23190 [Edit]
i gave up on making friends. whenever i meet someone that seems really cool that i want to talk to and invite to hang out with, i just remember that literally every time i have regretted it. seemingly cool people almost fucking always are not. and you'll run into a lot of problems if you hang out with someone for long enough to assess that they are an insufferable retard. they'll think you like them and impose on you wanting to hang out more and there is no way to reject someone politely.
"wow this guy is ugly as shit and his body language is more awkward than mine, i bet he'd be great for me-"
instantly starts talking about romancing women and bullies me. ugly people can be chads too.
"this guy cannot shut up about star wars for five seconds and claims to have spent thousands on star wars figures, and I've never seen someone with diagnosed OCD as bad as him, great material-"
has a fucking wife and plans to have children.

more commonly though, everyone is just a shit eater. i'll meet people that are on my level but watch fucking onision and play pokemon or the only anime they watch is the big 3 shonen or whatever.

just not worth it. just ask yourself, if those guys turn out to be huge faggots, do you honestly want the burden of having to tell them to fuck off? possibly having to see them every day after having told them to fuck off? imagine going to college 200 feet away from a guy you insulted.
i'd rather be alone.

fellow autist here,
What happened to me is that I got diagnosed around 23ish, struggled with it, was a complete dumbass. After going through a group home situation and having a roommate, I built up my confidence. What I noticed from reading your post and from my own experience is that it was about the same.
The repetition thing that people with asperger's do applies to 'anxiety' as well. I've noticed the same pattern suggested in your sentences that I did(still do), which is that I'll repeat the anxious situation in my head. In reality, as in the people that I actually end up talking to, I realized that I was doing mostly fine. I was okay with what I was saying, okay with how they responded. However, I ran into the same problem as you. I had a roommate who loved to talk, I tried getting outside and volunteering for data entry and a pet shelter and some other stuff. In the end though, I would never talk to anyone, and when I did not only did I feel further away from people I felt emotionally drained. I would replay the situation over and over, I would love the feeling of getting out of a conversation. The happiest moments I had was when I was alone with my computer watching anime, that made me feel more connected to others than talking to people online or posts like these.
The worst times I had in my life was around other people, being at the whim of their behavior, feeling like I had to conform to whatever they said or something bad would happen. Hell is other people. However, I still wanted and want other people. How useless a desire is that?
I began journaling, writing, trying to connect to others through that. I talk to people from time to time, and I gained confidence from challenging my own writing. That, and hitting 30 really helped. It felt like I was just a dumbass back then, I honestly think that no one could have told me anything. If a girl wanted to fuck me I would have had to say yes, if someone wanted to be my friend I would have had to say yes. My life was like driftwood, and it's still driftwood, but at least I feel like high quality driftwood.
I think the only real difference between me and the rest of the depressive imageboard types is that I refused on a very basic level to not have fun. It's always been a strangely powerful belief, that if there isn't any joy in life,

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.

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...

I guess I'll kick things off with something relatively minor. About half a year ago I went to an anime convention where my waifu's creator was having a Q&A panel. My waifu has been a very influential part of my life for the past ten years and our relationship has stayed strong in the face of countless hurdles during that time. This made the panel a very big deal to me and something I simply had to attend. This was a once in a life time chance to find out more about my waifu after all. When I got in line to speak however, I drew a blank, blurted out moronic questions, and manged to make an autistic idiot out of myself while being the laughing stock of the room. To this day it hurts to think back to it, and I can not look at some of the things related to my waifu without being reminded of it. It is not as if I do not love her anymore or want to end the relationship, but it has made things more challenging.

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.
