Something on-topic for the web site

anarchist's picture

Well, this was supposed to be an on-topic journal. It kind of turned out differently. Fuck you, read it anyway.

I'm growing increasingly misanthropic (thanks to the Amazing Atheist). Right now I'm sort of at 50% of people other than me should die, the other 50% is okay. Or maybe more like: 10% of the time everybody else should horribly die before me while I watch the world burn, the other 90% of the time I'm calm and I don't give a fuck.

I love being alone more than anything right now. So I guess that means that I'm not really gay anymore, since I just want 100% of the day to myself, and maybe a bit with my pets.

I lived pretty much alone the week before last week, since my mother has a new day job, and my father was working in Texas. That was nice.

And don't forget the new recent "Things to Do" section of my journals!

This is entertaining:

It's a bullshit documentary about the 2012 apocalypse, Hebrew aliens, and Atlantis. Fun to watch. I didn't embed it because it's an hour long, and you don't want to stay on this journal for an hour.

Here's another fun video:

A collection of George Carlin's personal favorite routines throughout his career.

And finally, this is really cool:


Tilt-shift photography is a style of photo editing that involves adding effects which make real scenes look like miniatures. It's really interesting to Google Image search it and look at the tilt-shift photographs.

I don't believe you!

"I love being alone more than anything right now. So I guess that means that I'm not really gay anymore..."

Uh... Cheers of congratulation expected? Dunno!

Being gay is a matter of libidinal orientation... Oh... I forgot... you profess to have no libido!

You seem to want it both ways: What mental images were you enjoying when you experienced that mind-blowing prostate orgasm (now a few months back) --- through diddling or dildo? Or... was that just a waking wet dream? :)

When you first joined Oasis... you professed to be totally devoid of any libidinal instincts... even to the extent of total ignorance of masturbation! We're back there?

Yet... you've stolen the avatar of one who has been perfecting the art for over 5+ years!

Something's failing to compute! :)

I guess I am gay in that sense,

but not in action, if you know what I mean. I do still fap and stuff, but in real life, I'd rather just stay away from people than have sexual or romantic relationships with them. Maybe this is because of too much solipsism.

elph's picture

Yeah... I'm sure that that expression...

went over the head of all but a few. Solipsism is a "good" word (although I doubt that it has any substance in fact)!

As for "fap"... does it mean what I think it does?

Anyway... your honesty is appreciated... and I see that you've now (past few minutes) returned the stolen property!

Great!

anarchist's picture

Yes I did.

Because I'm honest. I decided to steal a picture from somebody who hasn't been on here in years. He won't notice.

And. . .
I thought we already explained to you what fapping is.

elph's picture

Oh... you're right...

I just thought that hearing it again might spur some latent interest. :)

"50% of people other than me should die."

I'm not exactly a people person either, but damn, kid. Hateful much?

anarchist's picture

Maybe more than 50.

There are so many people who are either horrible or useless. Like pretty much every person in Afghanistan. A bunch of idiots who'll believe anything.

radiosilence95's picture

It's what they've been

It's what they've been raised in. There's hardly ever been a time of true peace in that country. The violence of their radical religion is probably all they'll ever know and all they'll ever want to know. I'm not sure that fanaticism is punishable by death, though. But I do agree that fanaticism like we see in the Middle East stunts, even reverses, any human progress.

anarchist's picture

Exactly.

They're completely useless. Afghanistan should just be removed from Earth. Maybe sent to Mars or somewhere where it won't be a threat to the human species.

I was going to do a short list of people who should all just die, but Maynard has done it for me:
"Fuck L Ron Hubbard and Fuck all his clones.
Fuck all these gun-toting Hip gangster wannabes.
Fuck retro anything. Fuck your tattoos.
Fuck all you junkies and Fuck your short memory.
Fuck smiley glad-hands with hidden agendas.
Fuck these dysfunctional, insecure actresses."

Ah, "Aenima" is one of

Ah, "Aenima" is one of Tool's greatest songs. My personal favorite would have to be "Forty Six & 2."

swimmerguy's picture

Holy shit

Well, I didn't have much problem when you did like that poetry is gay thing or anything else, but the "Afghanistan should die" thing was a little over the edge for me...

Afghanistan is a threat to the human species?! Since when?
I think the human species is a threat to Afghanistan.
There's nothing wrong with the Afghan people per se, more so than any other ethnic group of people. Afghanistan was, especially in the era of the gunpowder empires, and still is in some ways a center of a beautiful culture and language and way of life.
But although fortunes had been declining for some time, Afghanistan wasn't much violent until foreign invaders came, first the Russian invaders in the '80s, then after they'd buttfucked the country and its people and infrastructure for 10 years, and we, positively, supported the Afghan Northern Alliance against the Soviet occupation, the Taliban moved in, a group that we somewhat supported.
Then, after 9/11, we jumped at the opportunity to invade once more and fight a war against a Taliban insurgency.

What you'll notice is that all of these wars are not fought by Afghans. They are fought in Afghanistan, but by foreign actors over the territory of the Afghan people, who often fight solely defensively in defense of themselves (the Taliban is not Afghan, they are an international organization, mostly from Pakistan, but from other countries and Gulf States as well, that wants to establish an Islamic Republic and figured Afghanistan would be an easy place to do it), with often the only true losers being the people of Afghanistan who have a constant war over their heads, sometimes between Afghan people v. foreigners, sometimes foreigners v. each other.

This sort of rich-country chauvinism, holding an oppressed people in lower esteem because they're oppressed, because they're poor, because they're uneducated, boils my blood every single fucking time.
No doubt, Afghanistan is home to fairly conservative Islamic views on women and hosts of other issues, (due to a lack of education from being poor and in perpetual war) but the people who force women to wear burqas on pain of death are the exceptions, and the international Taliban, and are not the views of mainstream Afghanistan.
Afghanistan is a blight on the whole fucking world, but only because of the way foreign powers have and continue to exploit it for only their own fucking gain and regional power and oil, at the expense of its own alienated people.
While it would be unproductive and unnecessary for me to say that you, the wealthy American kid with time to think and leisure, are in fact the one who needs to die, I would plead with you and everyone you know to stop blaming a poor and oppressed people for being poor and oppressed, and hopefully realize that factors influencing regional views are complex, and that for you to judge them as an affluent American from thousands of miles away, taking the minority to represent the majority, makes you at least 100X more of a douchefuck the Afghan people have ever been, as a group.

Regardless of its history,

Afghanistan is broken beyond repair. It's lowering the IQ of all of humanity. And so is Mississippi. And Mali. All three should disappear. (And that's saying quite a lot coming from someone so in love with Malinesian history; it just isn't the great culture it once was.)

swimmerguy's picture

Honestly dude

There's just nothing I can say to that...

anarchist's picture

Then the internet is no place for you.

Like this one time I saw a British person explaining that the people in the World Trade Center deserved to die on September 11th because they were supposedly personally responsible for the wars in the Middle East due to the fact that they were American citizens (or at least working in America).
But I digress. The point is, the Internet is a place to post controversial, radical ideas. Just watch a few of Dendrophilian's videos and you'll get the point.

elph's picture

Well... I'm truly chagrined!

On the face if it, it looked like a desperate and very juvenile 24-hour tactic: heisting another's avatar!

But... it worked! Like a charm!

My own prediction had been: not a chance!

This, however, is your story... not mine! :(

(btw: This in no way constitutes my endorsement of the political speculations to which you have alluded.)

Something to agree on,

George Carlin is my favorite comedian of all time, hands down. RIP!

anarchist's picture

Check out Demitri Martin.

He's sort of like a modern George Carlin, but less cynical and more intelligent. He's a fucking genius.

My favorite comedian.
Actually, he's more of a Bill Hicks. Still, check him out.

elph's picture

Thanks for introducing me to this...

He reminded me of how I would often scrutinize the numbers on the license plate of the car in front of me (more often as a passenger... not while driving!)... searching for obscure mathematical relationships that might tie all the numbers together. Somewhat regrettably, this fringe OCD(?) was more predominant in my more youthful days...

Anyway... here are the links to Parts 2 & 3 of this performance:

Bosemaster42's picture

Yeah,

he's very good. I've seen him before. He is similiar to Carlin. Much less profane I suppose, but Carlin was pretty intelligent as well. One of my favorite lines regarding flying in airplanes-"Hey you gettin on the plane?
Fuck you! I'm getting in, let the daredevils get on."

Logical fallacies

"I love being alone more than anything right now. So I guess that means that I'm not really gay anymore, since I just want 100% of the day to myself, and maybe a bit with my pets."

"I do still fap and stuff, but in real life, I'd rather just stay away from people than have sexual or romantic relationships with them."

Let's look at the Oxford English Dictionary: http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/homosexual

Sorry, you're still gay. Elph has also pointed out your choice of icon, so I won't repeat that. You clearly enjoy some form of human interaction since you just posted an article about your new friends, which indicates that I can probably infer that you're either really insecure, bitter about something, ect.

You're also writing on a gay community site, which means that you're deliberately choosing to be a part of a community, which means that you're not a sociopath. Sorry.

"There are so many people who are either horrible or useless. Like pretty much every person in Afghanistan. A bunch of idiots who'll believe anything."

"Afghanistan should just be removed from Earth. Maybe sent to Mars or somewhere where it won't be a threat to the human species."

Okay, so I don't need to point out how racist and ignorant those statements are. Swimmerguy has already made a lot of good points, but it comes down to the fact that the geography, cultural capital and natural resources of the near and middle east have caused conflict for millennia. You and I may not agree with a good part of Afghani culture, but a human life is worth the same no matter where that life is from or what it believes in.

Then, you continue with another comment :

"Like this one time I saw a British person explaining that the people in the World Trade Center deserved to die on September 11th because they were supposedly personally responsible for the wars in the Middle East due to the fact that they were American citizens (or at least working in America)."

You do realize that you're doing the exact same thing as said British person? You're essentially stating that every person in Afghanistan deserves to die since they are a "threat" due to the fact that they are Afghani citizens, or working there.

Bosemaster42's picture

I have to agree with angel syndrome,

Reclusing yourself because the rest of the world isn't measuring up to your standards is quite selfish. I thought you were baiting for responses, so I ignored your comments on hating and wishing people gone. You would be better served to not give in to the negative thoughts coming into your mind. Watch your thoughts and try to understand them before typing up a confused maelstorm of contradictory rhetoric.

anarchist's picture

It isn't racist.

It's ignorant, but not racist. Afghans come from various races: the majority are Persian, but some are Arabs, some are Aryan, some are Central Asian Indo-Europeans. It's a diverse region, not a single-race nation.

MaddieJoy's picture

you're starting to remind me

you're starting to remind me of that mean guy who was on here when I 1st joined, the one who spent all day writing angry journals and posting inflammatory remarks & then saying he had a right to his opinions & everybody should shut up.
Yes, you have a right to your ignorant opinions, but please don't waste space on a nice website like this with them. That's what blogs & facebook are for.

anarchist's picture

It isn't an ignorant opinion.

It's a hastily-produced, half-baked idea. Sort of thinking out loud. I tend to do that all the time.

angel syndrome's picture

You're right. Xenophobic may

You're right. Xenophobic may have been a better word?

anarchist's picture

Yeah, that's it!

Xenophobic.
