I've been reconsidering my life. They always tell you that as you grow up things get easier since you mature and bloom into a normal human being… but I've been pondering whether people only pretend to have their lives in control only to not lose their shit about it. I mean, yeah, I don't think everybody hates their lives, but I'm sure everybody gets chocked by the pressure once in a while. The question is, what happens when your life is constant chocking? Or rather, can you go on with your live as you're chocked every second? Some years ago I remember looking at people and feeling completely distant, and knowing that one day I'd merge with the multitude. Now that it's happening, I almost can feel my old self there looking at me from outside the crowd. It's been pretty surreal. My life isn't bad in on itself, but I feel I can't fit, and no matter what I do it's never enough. I don't know, I've had this idea that I'm broken somehow, and it's been my justification for so long. If I can't be fixed, why bother?

The Five Stages of Grief

The first stage: Denial.

Denial is the first of the five stages of grief™️. It helps us to survive the loss. In this stage, the world becomes meaningless and overwhelming. Life makes no sense. We are in a state of shock and denial. We go numb. We wonder how we can go on, if we can go on, why we should go on. We try to find a way to simply get through each day. Denial and shock help us to cope and make survival possible.

The clock is tickling, but everybody is unaware of this.
The world is blurring, but so is everybody else.
I am disappearing, yet people don't realize this fact.

Sometimes I think about walking down the road into the wilderness, and letting the void engulf me.
I possess nothing, I have no attachments. Nothing but a small case, that I can carry with me wherever I go. Why am I carrying a case in the first place? I guess I'm afraid to lose my identity. With one foot outside the threshold, and the other one inside, what does it matter who I am. I was never here in the first place.



How the US is trying to maintain dominance of the advanced semiconductor industry and limit China's ability to develop its own

The US has long dominated the advanced semiconductor industry and is going to great lengths, and expense, to stop China from catching up.

The tiny computing components are essential for almost anything that runs on power these days — from home appliances to consumer technology like smart phones, computers and cars, through to defence systems, satellites, AI systems and weapons of war.

On top of pumping billions of dollars in subsidies and other incentives into its industry, the US has sought to build alliances with South Korea, Japan, the Netherlands and Taiwan to boost production.

It has also taken steps to drastically restrict China's ability to access the critical technology, also known as microchips.

But experts warn the latest suite of US moves in the so-called "chip wars" could also backfire, and push China's industry to develop its own advanced semiconductors.


Why is Jupiter so bright right now?
There's a few reasons, according to University of Southern Queensland astrophysics professor Jonti Horner.

The first is because Jupiter will reach something astronomers call opposition.

"It just means that Jupiter is pretty much opposite the sun in the sky," Professor Horner says.

"Jupiter is rising at sunset and setting at sunrise."

This happens every 13 months and makes Jupiter appear bigger and brighter than any other time of the year.

"At that time, the Earth is at its closest to Jupiter for that year — so we'd describe that as Earth making its closest approach to Jupiter," Professor Horner says.

"However, not all close approaches are equal, some are closer than others.

I need a gf….


Have you ever thought you loved someone, and then your relationship failed for whatever reason, and some time later you fall in love with someone else, and realize that your previous love was just a make-believe love, a childish imitation that you mistook for the real thing––an honest mistake, because you had never felt the real thing before? And yet you still feel a little embarrassed that you thought something so shallow could really be love, that love was simple and weightless, like a single pop song played on repeat until you die. It’s only when you hear the rest of the album that you realize love is so much better than that one hit single, that it’s got moods and movements, sounds that you’ve never heard before, melodies you never thought you would like, but you do, and now they’re stuck in your head. It’s good in a way you didn’t know something could be good.

Imagine getting stuck in that first relationship forever. When it goes bad—and relationships like that always go bad eventually—you simply can’t separate, for whatever reason. You become one of those couples that doesn’t actually seem like they love each other. When you make fun of one another, it sounds like you really mean it. You go on lots of business trips because you don’t have much fun being around your spouse. You get cynical about love and you scoff at every love story and love song because that’s not really what it’s like. Nobody ever actually feels deep, abiding pleasure in another human being, you think, at least not for long.

Or, if you’ve never felt a love like that—imagine that the biggest body of water you’ve ever seen is a dinky little pond and you think, “Yep, that’s about as much water as there can be! There’s nothing deeper or wider than this. Seeing water that stretches onward to the horizon, water that can turn into tidal waves, water that hides giant whales and creatures that have never seen the sun, that’s just a bunch of tall tales.”

And maybe you can be happy sitting next to your pond, so long as you never see an ocean. Maybe when you meet people who tell you about the magnificent oceans they’ve seen, you figure they’re just exaggerating what it’s like to see a pond. “Ah yes, I remember seeing my first pond,” you chuckle. But somewhere deep in your brain, there’s a little twinge of doubt.

I think lots of people are stuck in that first relationship, stuck next to their tiny little pond, skeptical that anything greater exists. But it taPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Well my first gay experience happened like this:
I was about 50 yards or so up this path when I noticed a man standing off the side of the path apparently staring into the woods. As I got closer I realized his pants were down around his ankles and I could see his ass. Now, I'm straight but I have to say that it was a really nicely shaped ass for a man and I took notice. I figured maybe he was drunk and just peeing in the bushes, so I started to walk quieter so I wouldn't disturb him. But as I got closer I started hearing strange grunts and sucking sounds. I realized there was another man blowing him.
Now, I'm not gay but I slowed my pace down to watch. I slowed and approached the standing man from behind. His friend didn't take any notice as his eyes were tightly closed. I came right up behind the man standing so that I could have reached out and touched him. That's when I brought the cinder block down on his head, hard. He collapsed on top of his faggot friend and I quickly finished them both off. I rolled them into the bushes and finished my walk. That was only my first of many such gay encounters.


A friend of mine, who was adopted, and is quite successful and doesn't get drunk and maudlin about his adoptive status, decided to seek out his adoptive parents, which you can do, if you have money (which he does). They turned out to be two college students who had sex in college in the 1960's and had him. They didn't feel they could raise a baby, so they put him up for adoption.

They had since divorced and the birth Dad really wanted nothing to do with him, which I am sure hurt. But Dad had a new, new family, and wasn't even keen on visiting the kids from his first marriage, much less their first child they put up for adoption. His birth mother was a little more receptive, and his new siblings seemed pretty friendly. But there was no Hallmark homecoming - it was, in fact, awkward as be put it. And they haven't stayed in touch that much, in terms of spending holidays together or whatever. You meet someone after 40 years, what do you have in common, other than DNA? And the real truth is, we share 99.9% of our DNA with everyone else.

*sigh* Can't find love cos I don't love myself. Maybe. This is what adoption does to you…

Erotic anorectal violence—anoreceptive activity involving a combination of rapid thrusting, considerable girth, and a prolonged duration—is both rampant and one of the greatest contributors to societal decadence today:
• Due to its ubiquity in pornography, several generations now have grown up masturbating to, demanding more of, and seeking to emulate violent behavior that should easily be considered severely criminal when more than one person is involved. Perpetrators of this violence against one or more others going unpunished is a major problem, as is incriminating evidence being sold for profit. Those perpetrators are rewarded, encouraged, and celebrated when they should instead face justice and be condemned.
• Widespread apathy, (often willful) ignorance, and misinformation about anorectal anatomy, physiology, and health are enabling people with (self-)destructive tendencies to have a field day with such violence and to effectively spread disinformation. That unrestrained hedonism is contributing greatly to societal decay. Far too many people neither wish to think about nor seriously discuss anorectal matters, so rampant anorectal violence and its consequences "fly under the radar;" people would much rather focus on some other (in many cases far less dangerous) kind of erotic abuse.
• Widespread ignorance of what a human anus is even supposed to look like makes it an easy target for those who like to mutilate body parts. Although the anus is one of our most important body parts, typically it is very under-valued. It commonly is denigrated and intentionally harmed, a situation that is tolerated—or at least ignored—by far too many people. As the vast majority of humanity likely never will care much at least about another person's anus, discouraging anoreceptive activities entirely is the only realistic solution.

Rampant anorectal violence is caused by—and in turn contributes back to—societal decadence; this is called a positive feedback loop.

Consider, anon, that 'wall of text aversion' is not the primary factor discouraging people from taking you seriously. Consider, perhaps, that it is the fact that you are seeking justice for anal sex and general societal 'decadence' on a discussion site that evolved around an indie game about dreams and hikkikomori.

In addition, please be aware that posting large amounts of data is not always an effective means of persuasion, even to so called highly-intelligent and highly-literate people, particularly if that information challenges what they consider to be generally held beliefs or consensus. I would recommend reaching out to more active communities, such as reddit, where people can be eager to discuss contentious issues, and doing so in a style that focuses more on rhetorical argument, with your data as a device to be taken out once the discussion has begun and people request sources or information.

I wish you luck in dealing with your anorectal troubles.

ok then. I apologize for associating you with your posts, and thinking that your unique interests and methodology are reflective of you.

In the meantime, I have a genuine question. How often (and where) do you get a positive or interested response in your campaign of posting this information? Would you say you have reached or found agreement in many people? I am just curious. Certainly, you have made it clear it isn't the common response.


Thank you for posting


Positive and/or interested responses are indeed very uncommon. Regardless, even when people seem to be positive and agreeable: still nothing changes for the better from what I can tell. The significant issues I've covered in those English Wikipedia articles, for instance, have persisted pretty much constantly for many years now. And I've been posting about them for far too many years as well, seemingly ineffectually unless there is more going on (e.g. Wikipedia mods/admins abusing their power to make edits or reversions that don't show up in the edit history: I've seen no evidence that anything of the sort has occurred, however; a much more likely explanation is that people simply are not paying serious attention to—much less trying to effect change as a result of—anything I've been posting).
You're welcome.
> reddit bullshit & omission
Soon, instead of posting "bump" or pertinent wall-of-text quotes, I may provide details on said bullshit & omission for included URLs. That, at least, is not something I've done before; for some reason nobody has ever asked for those details. I might as well provide them regardless.
