Shitposting litmus tests:

>Does my thread OP discuss personal issues by any stretch of the imagination?

If the answer is no, it's probably shitposting.

>Is my reply related to the OP, other replies in the thread or board discussion in general?

If not, your post is likely a shitpost.

Use your better judgement please.

>Well OP, I have to wonder why you would bother

It's mostly virgin thirst at this point I think, but the idea of taking the demons of a fat feminist out of her, making her slim and attractive without piercings was also a factor.

>I'd tell you to look elsewhere but I'd also tell you that you shouldn't hesitate from cucking the guy if you get the chance. People who enable women like that are just as bad as the women themselves.

Nah, I'm not that deep in the shit. I'd just like to find somebody to have a relationship with but since I've never been in one and heard that after the first one attachment to a person wears thin I'm kinda wary about it.

>I like the idea of fixing her

It's a good goal to have, no doubt, but I think that's probably more wishful thinking than anything you would be able to achieve. In my experience, it's incredibly difficult to get other people to change themselves in positive ways. I've never seen it happen before. I'm sure it's possible and I wouldn't say that no one can do it, but replacing someone's bad qualities with good ones isn't something I think you should go into a relationship expecting. Because if it doesn't happen, then you've screwed yourself.

>I'd just like to find somebody to have a relationship.

Well, that's pretty respectable, I just wouldn't want your first significant relationship to be something you'll end up regretting.

>after the first one attachment to a person wears thin

In my experience, given enough time, this isn't that true. If you get into a really important relationship with someone and then she ends it for example, yes, you will have trouble finding attachment with other people for a while, but spend enough time apart, and you'll be able to move on and be able to love someone with just as much passion as you did with the previous person. Mind you, the time it takes for this to happen can take years, depending on how you feel, what kind of person you are, the nature of the relationship etc.

The only thing I think you should be careful about is your first relationship being really really bad, because that probably will colour your perceptions of romance and women in the future in a very negative way which would be a pretty shitty thing to happen.






You can't change someone who doesn't want to change without diving into emotional manipulation. At that point you're not helping them, you're abusing them. I especially don't think you'll be able to change a hamplanet feminist. You need to redirect that thirst towards women who are (or at least look like) decent human beings.



This. The amount of effort you spend trying to fix someone else would be much better used improving yourself. Exercise more.

There are many times during the day where I feel like none of this is real. I feel like I'm just using this body as an avatar. It makes me lose focus and it's causing me trouble in my classes. I constantly feel like something in my body wants to float out and away from it.

What should I do? I want to get help but I want to get the kind of help that won't just throw pills at the problem and hope for the best


essential oils brah


Go talk to a psychiatrist. Tell them you are reluctant to use pills. They can help you in other ways. I can save you the trouble however and say exactly what they are going to say. Exercise more. Don't drink a lot, or at all if you can help it. Don't use drugs. Focus on your schoolwork but also do things you like in your spare time. If that means playing videos games or talking with people on imageboards, go wild.


Also it sounds like you might just be depressed. I have felt seriously out of sorts when in actuality I was just treating my body horribly and not getting enough sleep.

I know that many of you will say "ah its just annoying underages" but I dont think so. These folks get so pissy about any new slang or meme that "le edgy teens" is not really plausible. "Le edgy manchildren" is more like it. Just more proof that Xennials are the new boomers.

Well, no one on 4um these days can be bothered to make OPs that are longer than a one sentence question and 80% threads on non-sfw boards are literal cuck and or trap threads.

>4chan-anons are degenerates that practice occult, have nasty fetishes, and may plan coldblooded murder.

Yeah but to be fair, most people live without any kind of moral guidance and without any forms of real support, friendship or family. It's not all that surprising people are becoming fucked up and revel in murder, guro, degenerate fetishes, and political extremism but at the same time cry about how much they wish they had real honest friends, or a caring gf/wife or a family that loves them. Most everyone is eating the shit these days and no one in the "real world" cares.

It really feels like we're all the beautiful ones these days.



This is the truth. Most people on 4um (and pretty much all imageboards if we're being honest with ourselves) are isolationists who become more and more twisted and degenerate as their lack of human connection causes them to lose their humanity


Seriously. Log out of your reddit account and browse vanilla reddit homepage. Read the comments. You will quickly realize that those faggots are even worse than imageboard types. I agree that there is a lot of hivemind culture on the chans, but reddit is so fucking gay it is difficult to reconcile your OP with reality. The fact that they have a 4chan subreddit but complain about how scary 4chan and 8chan are just shows how big of posers they are. Losers.

That said it is good to step back and analyze the people you talk to. A lot of channers spout crap to fit in, but that is just human nature. I dare you to find a place where this kind of ingroup thinking does not occur. You seem to be jaded about these imageboards so why don't you take a break? I do not mean this condescendingly but it would be good for your mental health. God knows I should take a break too.

The internet exacerbates problems in human nature. You could take break entirely. You will be a lot happier.



>practice occult, have nasty fetishes, and may plan coldblooded murder

That is the price of liberty. Weird unsavory shit festers even if you do not want it to be that way.

That doesn't sound like it was a great relationship then. But I guess that explains why she's your "ex" wife



Yeah…she was damaged goods. She threw herself upon me because I was the first half-decent guy who showed any remote interest in her and seemed like a good candidate for her knight in shining armor. At the time, it was nice for me because I was a depressed autistic misfit loner with no friends and finally was able to make a deep, meaningful connection with another human (one that was a member of the opposite sex, no less). We had a nice time for several years, probably because I was too enamored and stubborn to acknowledge I was being taken advantage of, but when we got married and moved in together, shit started piling up. Literally, in some ways. I would always come home to find her either still in bed or glued to her PC playing World of Warcraft or browsing Reddit, with dirty dishes piled up everywhere, garbage overflowing, clothes strewn about, some mess her cat made, and whatever nonsensical arrangement of objects she had to make because anything else made her anxiety act up or whatever. I made multiple ER trips because I'd find her catatonic and unresponsive, only for her to wake up as soon as they put us in a room like nothing ever happened, and each time, the doctors found nothing wrong. I just went with it because I'd convinced myself she needed time to get better, and there were some small aspects that did get better, but over time, the small improvements gave way to huge regressions, and the anxiety and other aspects worsened considerably. Eventually, her time on Reddit got her to drink some ultra-strength leftist kool-aid despite alleging multiple times she was "red-pilled", and then one day, she decided I just wasn't worth talking to anymore. I decided enough was enough at that point.

And so ended the story of my big tiddie goth gf.

Sorry for the blogpost…it just stings a little bit still.



>big tiddie goth with little to no personal accountability

sounds like one of my sister's tbh, useless cunt, at least you got to fug yours though.



Part of me wonders if we're talking about the same person.

I'm the post above that can't cry. What's that like? I can't really understand it. I can get really sad, down right depressed, but I never cry. Even if it's crushing my soul I never cry.

Anons, I need some serious help here. No /r9k/ or /mgtow/ stuff, fellas that actually get girls without being Chads.

How the fuck do you do it? Social circle would be easiest, but as I said, I don't actually have any friends and I haven't the slightest clue how to go about breaking into those circles. I did join a Latin dancing club at uni, but I usually leave after the sessions end because I don't know how to talk to anyone.

Listen faggot I'm an alien incarnated from higher dimensions here to help Earth transvibrate back into Love and Light and I didn't come here to be sage'd by some anonymous nobody on an obscure abandoned 8chan board, capiche?


it's called confidence bronon. you are obviously not so autistic that you can't pick up on cues, girls in the library smiling after a long stare, you are just too much of a pussy to capitalize on the opportunity. At that point you had already done the hard part without even realizing it, you got her attention and you got a cue that she thought you seemed decent. staring at a girl in a library can go one of two ways, you obviously didn't creep her out and have security called on you, so i really do think you're working with more than what you think you have.

if you're going to a reasonably size uni then that's great, university campuses are actually reasonably big places, don't be afraid to fail, you're not going to get better without trying, the fat fuck pajeet spitting game was likely fucked with mercilessly and has probably stuck out more than you ever will in your whole life no matter how much you try, yet he goes for it…..the alpha mentality isn't being a dick, it's being strong enough and having the balls to push all of the internal bullshit aside and just fucking capitalize..that's what you're missing and you're not going to get it without a change in the state of your mind, sports psychology has become a big thing for a reason, there is a mental attitude that separates people and it reflects itself in every aspect of a persons life. you need to find this shit bronon and nobody can tell you how to do it, it's a world view sort of thing, when you look at yourself you need to see yourself as the person that girl in the library smiled at, not whatever this shit is, you got a lot going for you, you're going to school you're not a fat fuck, apparently you're somewhat attractive. lean into that shit, i did a lot of extreme sports growing up and nothing will get you fucked faster than hesitating, you focus, then you commit and there's no looking back, it's all forward motion, if you eat shit, roll with it. picking up girls is no different, you're a guy, they expect you to say stupid shit, you have no fucking idea as women all of the stupid shit men have said to them over the course of thier lives, you this is true, a lot of us are fucking idiots, especially when it comes to talking to women. just go for it anon, introduce yourself, ask questions "what's your major?" has worked for generations, listen to what she has to say and just be you man, last thing you want Post too long.

I'm 42, kind of chubby, I'm going bald, I'm 5'8", nothing at all special about me. I look my age. I don't have money. I drive and old beat to hell ford ranger. I have no problems pulling in pussy from 18 to 80. Of course I rarely pull in any prime cunt any more, but at least I can get my weekly lay in without much effort or cash out flow. I also do not live near a big city. I live outside of a bunch of rural towns in the country. I live in a beat up mobile home to keep my costs low.

When it comes to females, all I do is act like I am interested in what they have to say. I do it with a smile and act happy. I act a little snarky and combative, just a little. I'm always a bit vague about my relationship status. If they think you're not at least seeing someone, then they feel you're damaged and no one wants you. It's easy to fake confidence when you know you probably won't see that person or group of people again. Where I am, there are plenty of places to go fuck without having to go to each others houses or buy a hotel room. I used to do that in my youth. A girl can cool off in that 10 minutes it takes to get the room and then refuse you your pleasure. Had it happen.



Pretty much this

Why can't adults as a collective take responsibility for their shit? Why do they always blame the youths for everything that goes wrong?

People in the west flip out about teens jacking off to porn yet they see no problem with 40-something men drinking themselves stupid to the point where they require surgical intervention which will go shit because of alcoholism.

Grown men drop F-bombs all the day long but get pissy about some fourth grader makes one.

Or how about people getting angry about grade schoolers not knowing about pop culture from 20+ years ago yet these old farts don't even know what was popular in their grandparents' day?

I go on the Internet and see mostly people in their 20s, 30s and 40s whinng about not finding about the perfect mate with the perfect bod but they accuse teens of narcissistic thirsty virgins. (*cough* /r9k *cough* /cuteboys).

I mean adults nowadays really are just eternal older siblings. (Not that adults were mature to begin with.)

I notice adults get angry when a child doesnt say "please" or "thank you" but these same folks rush out of the place without a please or thank you. And when there's some tech the elders don't know how to use, they make smartass commemts, but when a teen criticizes the tech of their day they huff and puff.

When a child or young adult makes a mistake on a task, especially if they're male, the elders accuse them of being lazy or immature. Yet these same elders walk out restrooms without washing hands or they pick up food they dropped on the floor and eat it.

I know most of you will never agree bc we've been conditioned "criticism of your elders is disrespect." And thats why boomers can get away with recklessness over and over simply because theyre "too old to scold."

I think it's because society really does regress as the generations pass. With that said however, I think you answered your own question. As people get older they get wiser in other ways but they think they get wiser all around and that's not always the case. This leads to their ego inflating and simply thinking that their immune to criticism and anybody thinking otherwise simply has bad manners. It's easy to think you know better when you have more experience.

Or at least, that's what I think.

Don't see anything wrong with this. 8chan complies with US LAW, not NZ law. Understandably they've asked info about the shooter to better profile him, but no data will be given other than that, otherwise the website would have been shut down already.

Anybody else like to download/pirate obsessively?

I have USB's, disks, and even a laptop devoted to collecting online stuff. It's usually films, TV shows, Anime, books, videos, music, Video Games, Pictures, and other misc media and stuff, but I've also started adding leaks, hacks, doxes, Documents, webpages, and other stuff like that to my collection.

I like to call it "archiving" and fancy myself a sort of scholar, but it's more like digital hoarding of some sort. I'm barely even interested in the stuff that I have, it's just cool to say that I have all of it, more so with this TPP trade deal threatening to take down content en masse.

I think you data-hoarders, possibly with the exception of the porn guys (no offense, porn guys), are fulfilling the human need to preserve stories.

Everything in the modern world is so fleeting. For the most part, pictures aren't the forever keepsakes they used to be. Pictures used to be taken only at significant events, or when capturing freely experienced moments of joy or other emotions. Families, couples, children. Christmas morning. Your first car. Getting drunk for the first time at a high school house party. First apartment. First house. Wedding day. Your childs first steps. Grandfather out in the yard, teaching the grandkids how to throw a baseball

Getting everyone together, into the frame, to save a moment forever. Taking a polaroid at a dance. Or winding your disposable nikon as time flowed by you, forever capturing some important moment with a click of the shutter.

Even if it wasn't important, capturing it made it that way. No matter how mundane, it became one of a limited number of windows into the past. Shoeboxes of old pictures, leafed through with nostalgia in some distant future that somehow always comes to pass too soon.

We're so surrounded by cameras now, and the culture has become so painfully meta, that we've become perpetually self conscious. We take so many pictures now that they don't mean anything. The sushi you ate for lunch. Twelve slightly different selfies you took, trying to get that perfect combination of looking good without looking like youre trying to look good. Those fifty pictures and six second video of the inside of your pocket you took on accident.

Theoretically, it'll all live forever.

But it doesn't. When every single moment is captured- or at least capable of being captured- intention is lost in a sea of perpetuity. The significance of the moment is lost in our sense that each of them will be around forever.

With every moment captured, none of the memories feel precious. With all of them preserved, none of them are truly saved. Millions of tiny slices of life, lost with each harddrive failure. Each phone upgrade. Frozen in amber on every forsaken flash drive that lies forgotten in every drawer oPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



Holy wall of text. But I do agree, I love looking back at the small amount of Internet history we have now, listening/reading stories about what happened, lore, all that. I'm saving stuff in the hope that I can show others the good times and the bad back when I was younger. That's why I try to save every funny or interesting moment I can. I hope someone will care to dig around my TBs of videos, audio, and text someday.

I really got interested in this stuff when I found out about textfiles.com. Jason Scott inspired me immensely. If it weren't for him, I wouldn't have such an interest and stuff. If you do think he's doing cool stuff, you should shoot him an email saying thanks, he enjoys those.

I felt this just yesterday when my nana busted out some old photo albums and baby books. I thought

>the photos on someone's old iphone 3 are less important and won't be passed around at family gatherings



Music, images, and lately imageboard threads. Collecting them ever since 13 or something. Old songs from the olden days that would be hard to find even on the internet, let alone an authentic CD. Started collecting anime pictures shortly after because I can use them on my MSN profile or as a wallpaper (inb4 weeb, I am on the east side of the hemisphere, 3 guesses). Imageboard threads as of few years ago. Threads full of fun, laugh, and kindness shown by anons here.



Can you post pics of epic breads?
