#108 what are ya READING? in Music, Movies, TV

I'm not actively reading anything right now but I'm trying to read more since I've found this great app called Hoopla that lets me legally read just about anything on my phone or computer with my sister's library card.
-I just finished Animal Farm. It was good!

Show Content
rip boxer :(((((

-I just finished reading the Vision 2015-2016 comic series (12 issues across two volumes). Honestly, I wanted to like it because I love robots, the pitch was great and the art was gorgeous, but it felt like 12 issues of filler and disconnected plot points.

-If I have downtime in the car I'm usually reading some transformers comic! More Than Meets the Eye (2012-2018) is SO good you guys if you like humor, sci-fi settings, losers on spaceships and things that are good you will like it! It's just about my favorite piece of fiction ever! The first five volumes (which is one complete story arc) are avail on Hoopla, so if you have a library card you can read them for free! It costs you nothing!

#1154 Vent your anger in Off Topic

i will literally never ever ever be good at a multiplayer video game in my life.
TF2, CSGO, R6, Smash Bros, Splatoon, the whole lot of them.
No matter how many hundreds (or in TF2's case, thousands) of hours I put into them, I will always suck and I will always bottom score. I pour my heart and soul into trying to get better but I will always lose to some dude that plays video games every other weekend to relax.
I have no motivation to learn any new skills that I'm not immediately good at because I was "the gifted kindergartner" type and all that.
On top of that, I have no job and I can't get a job and I never will have a job, and if I ever do get a job, it will be some lifeless 9-5 that will never fulfill me, if fulfillment is even possible for me.
Not only do I suck at my only hobby and have no career prospects, I will also never have a positive impact on the world. Activism is not really viable for me without a car to go to protests or whatever, and I would never get elected to public office because of my views.
I feel like I don't bring anything to my friend group and I know this is me being paranoid but I feel like my friends secretly find me annoying. I also feel like I'm a disappointment to my parents for just playing video games all day. I kow they love me but I know they resent all the time I spend on my computer.
Some of my friends and family struggle mentally and it sucks that I don't know how to help them and I feel like I've let them down.
I actually have no real sense of identity because I'm always shifting different parts of my personality to the front depending on who I'm with and how I perceive their expectations of me. The only thing that's consistent across the multiple masks I have is that I'm an insufferable know it all.
I'm constantly doubting my own feelings because as a kid I internalized it when someone doubted if I was really feeling what I was feeling or thought I was feeling a different way (example: my mom doesn't think im happy unless im jumping up and down, so now I wonder if I'm actually happy if I'm not physical, but I know I'm probably happy. other example: as a kid my sister always teased me whenever I was near a girl so now I am incapable of distinguishing between platonic affection and romantic attractions when I meet girls).
I will also never get a girlfriend.
I always plan to be a nice kid when I'm alone, but when I'm around other people I immediately turn into an asshole.

So to recap:
No skill at my only hobby
No job prospects
Unable to be fulfilled by anything
Will never change the world for the better
Insecure in my relationships
Unsure of my own emotions.
Oh, did I mention I'm a coward and I'm scared of everything and the phrase "better safe than sorry" has destroyed my life?

All these things are constantly swirling around in my brain but I'm only viscerally angry about it when I lose at a video game.

Doom1CaptainZidgelhttps://assets.amuniversal.com/4f7a8a5c37b8102d94d7001438c0f03bRight, nothing bad will happen out of it. Except the EU telling Poland to shut down coal mines and therefore thousands of jobs because enviroment. Meanwhile Germany mines twice the amont of coal that Poland does, but quotas are quotas hehe. We must destroy weaker economies that can't afford to go green, right?!

I would actually like Germany to stop mining coal as well! I'd like every country to do so! I see you're from Poland. You've made the bizarre assumption that I share the opinion that the way forward is to do whatever happened in your country. Yikes, dude. I'd like countries like the USA and China to pull their big boy pants up, act as a good example, then help tiny countries create renewable resource infrastructure. Not sure about what Germany did to you regarding climate, but I do not endorse climate hypocrisy.

#41 Another mass shooting in El Paso Texas in World Events
Doom1UPDATE: The guy said in his manifesto that his plan existed long before Trump's presidency, but that he knows Trump's thetoric will get the blame anyways.

Picture this: You've wanted to touch the stove top for a long time. A real long time. Then, one day, someone with authority says "some fine people have touched the stovetop" or laughs and smiles when you suggest touching the stove. Yes, your desires predate this guy talking about the stove, but he's the one encouraging you. It's been said in this thread before: Trump is not the cause of the shooting, but he's no hindrance either.
https://theintercept.com/2019/08/04/el-paso-dayton-mass-shootings-donald-trump/

Obviously, the shooter must've spent some time on 8chan if he felt it appropriate to post his manifesto there, so his views were probably reinforced there, and if he watched cable news he'd have found a friend in Tucker Carlson.
The point is there are a lot of nasty people shaping minds in this world, and I'd rather the president fight back against white supremacy, not repeat and reinforce talking points about immigrant invasions (which he also gets from Carlson and Hannity).

So to sum it all up: Trump bears some blame but as Coovoo said he's just a symptom of American nationalism.

#29 Another mass shooting in El Paso Texas in World Events

some people in this thread have already said it but with a lot of extra words so I'm going to try and sum it up quickly.
El Paso shooter: I have right-wing beliefs about hispanics and I am shooting up a mall because of it.
Dayton shooter: I like leftist politicians, also I'm going to shoot up some people.*
not all violence inherits the ideology of the perpetrator.

(that about sums it up, but ive got an extra paragraph of clarification here)

Show Content
Now, see, the Dayton guy liked Elizabeth Warren, right? Warren likes to talk about breaking up big tech. Now, if someone who liked Warren shot up a Google office and left a manifesto about breaking up Google, then you could call them a shooter inspired by Warren/leftism, but for now, it's intellectually dishonest to say the Dayton shooter was inspired by his politics to shoot up a place.

*as of writing, the Dayton shooter's motives are still under investigation.

#367 le economy crash in TF2 General Discussion
Air_do we know what they're going to do or are we just assuming they're getting deleted

Bold of you to assume they're actually going to do _anything_.
Easiest thing for them to do would be "We've decided to leave the hats untradable". (Which I think would probably be the best option)

ScreamCaptainZidgelDaggerorange man badhuman rights abuses and war crimes bad... like seriously bad
you may think the only reason people dislike america is orange man but suprisingly, america's done some bad stuff
this is just off the top of my head :)
Every country has done horrendous things at one point.
The U.S. is just bad at covering them up XD.

Call me when other countries position themselves as God's gift to the world and defenders of democracy with a military that can never do wrong and a magic flag of freedom nobody is allowed to dislike.
Also, other countries doing bad things is not an excuse for America being one of the biggest sponsors of terrorism and the worst threat to world peace in 50 years.
