The "whatever's on your mind" thread

posted by GuruGuru214 on - last edited - Viewed by 126.9K users

One of the things that's great about this forum is its randomness. Well, this is the epitome of it: a thread for whatever random thought happens to be passing through your mind.

For example, I've just been struck by the most random craving for Taco Bell nachos.

  • @coolsome said: I wouldn't take it out cos I'd be afraid I'd get mugged. Also when I googled it, it said 3G would eat the battery and almost everywhere said just get WiFi(plus I dont even own a mobile phone so have no interest in a pay as you go not phone). So I said I'll send it back and wait a week for Uncharted and the PS vita I ordered.

    Good call, imo.

  • I ended up saying sod it the 3Gness wont kick in unless I put a sim card in. Im still getting the game I just gotta send the golf one back.

    I was thinking about my old apartment. It was in a really bad neighborhood. A woman who lived upstairs used to peek in my windows and look at my mail. A drug dealer lived next door, and the cops knocked on my door looking for him when he moved out (although I only talked to him once when I moved in). The apartment building caught on fire... it was almost surreal to have a fireman knock on your door telling you that you have to leave because the building is on fire. The room where the fire started was infested with roaches, so they came downstairs into my apartment after the fire. And there once was some sort of skerfuffle with people in the building on the other side of the street. There were 4 police officers with rifles aimed at that building and we were instructed to stay inside (like we would have left with that going on right outside).

    It was scary there, but on the bright side, there was never a dull moment.

  • I still don't get the point of anything. As a species living a horrifying existence destined to die, we should be trying to expand our exploration of space, and the safety of our species and the intelligence we have. Instead we spend our time squabbling over pointless leaders. Laws and patriotism are clouding our purpose and taking up our precious time.

    Anyway, that's what I was thinking as I sat in bed last night trying to work up the courage to take a lethal dose of medication. What? I have nothing to offer this world or anyone in it. Yet I have a better understanding of what we should be offering each other than most. What a joke.

    It's too bad I'm such a coward.

    ... I've been there too man, hell, earlier at work I just wished a dark void would just open up under me and tear the very fibers of my being out of space and time, but I guess the reason I keep on living is that I care about my family too much to do something so selfish. (And I guess a little twist of cowardice to taste as well... :( )

    I guess I also hang onto the hope that one day I might get my shit together and actually make something. Something to bring a little joy to others, maybe even joy to people further down the timeline.

    But thats life for you. Very rarely do those that deserve to influence the world ever get into the position to make real change.

    You know, as crazy as it sounds, I think I would support a scheme that could fast-track those who have talent, but also the emotional and mental stability to properly utilise that talent, to the top of society.

    Of course power can corrupt, though I always wonder if it is society that corrupts those in power instead of the person themselves.

    I wonder if, when you take out the weeds, (those people who corrupt others and suck away the resources of humanity like a parasite), those new people in power could govern and improve without falling to corruption.

    But... then again... Human nature is subtle. That natural greed and dark curiousity may even turn the nicest into twisted shells of themselves eventually.

    Heh. I guess even a dreamer like me can't stretch his imagination that far to find an answer.

  • My family would be better off without me. I don't have a job, so they support me when my welfare checks don't help them with bills. And other than that, we have nothing in common. I'm a drain. My fiancee deserves way better.

    You have no idea how often I think the same thing. But the I figure, I should care, simply so that life will be slightly less miserable.

    Sounds like you haven't found your way yet, and I bet people like you more than you think they do.

    I know thats the case for me. Everyone tells me how lovely I am, yet I absolutely despise myself because I know I can be so much more. I look too far into the infinite of the future, the possibilities, and it drives me mad, when really, I need to focus on the here and now. To get myself to do things for myself now. To develop myself else nothing will ever change, and that stagnation is the worst part. That boredom. It drills into my skull and scrambles my brains up.

    Just a shame then, that I spend most of my time beating myself up about not doing anything, instead of doing anything. -_-
    (I really need to get past this apathy...)

    EDIT: I mean tonight I could have gone to a D'n'D session that just started up at the comic shop.
    I could have met new people, and maybe have some good fun there too.

    But I convinced myself not to go because I was "too tired", and that it may have been awkward to work with people I don't know (without the safety net of a teacher around... -_-).

    Tomorrow, I should force myself to go out in atonement. Try to do something new. Else I'll just be moping around and getting moaned at.

  • Nope, I just get to hear all the time how every single thing I do is wrong and I'm the scum of the earth.

    Pretend that they're calling you the SCUMM of the earth.

    Sorry, I can't think of anything else to say right now. I feel like an alien is about to burst out of my abdomen and start eating everyone in sight or something.
