I hate that there aren't enough arcades.

That first sentence says it exactly. Back in the geocities days (and including all those other terrible free web hosting sites) there was a certain charm to everything because people were learning basic html and putting their own ideas out there. Now everyone just goes "hey look what I found" on facebook so that people can go "huh, cool" and it's just an endless cycle of uncreativity.

I don't know if it's getting older as much as it's losing your capacity for accepting change, which probably does come with age but I feel completely different in this respect from everybody in my age group. When you're a kid you don't care when shit changes, you even love it, but I'm in my mid-20s and I already find it extremely hard to give a shit about new trends and technology. My phone is from 2006, my TV is from the 90s, I only have a new laptop because my old one broke but I got cheapest fucking thing I could find and it still has more features and hard drive space than I care to ever use.

But it definitely sucks that video rental stores and bookstores are becoming obsolete. The internet, from my vantage point, is pretty damn awful and I honestly question how much I would really care if SOPA passed.

AW, BRO! :( WE COULD MAKE COMMENTS ON EACH OTHER'S STATUSES AND HIT ON EVERY RANDOM GIRL THAT COMMENTS. I COULD EXPLAIN IT BY SAYING "THAT'S MY AMERICAN FRIEND," AND YOU COULD DO THE SAME, ONLY DIFFERENT.

lol :(. if you're desperate, don't smoke any of that synthetic gas station weed i've heard it's pretty awful. i have a big fat nug in my room right now, i'm gonna go smoke some weed and go buy a nice winter coat. being a middle class white person rules

I think part of the reason why the internet is so boring now is because more people use it. It's had this homogenizing effect where accessing entertainment has become easy enough for my mother to do it. The internet used to be more like the wild west, except populated almost exclusively by weirdos. Now nothing is really "weird" anymore, it's all safe enough to entertain errbody

tbh all SOPA would do to the internet is destroy domain names, which might actually be an improvement because then the good parts of the internet could go back to being elitist circlejerks. I do love me a good elitist circlejerk. Of course the more sinister aspect of SOPA is what it represents and the precedent it would set.

I don't really give a hoot that video rental stores are disappearing. I don't even particularly care that DVDs/Blu-Ray may be obsolete soon. With the invention of netflix and all those streaming websites, I have a much wider variety to choose from than I did from my local blockbuster.

damn son you got some generous friends.

ugh i hate scraping my bowl for resin. honestly i think most of that high is just from inhaling excessive amounts of butane. unless of course you haven't cleaned your bowl in forever and you've just got this sludgy resin chillin in your piece, hit that and you can get pretty stoned.

kahljorn Jan 20th, 2012 08:52 PM

yea i dont clean my pipe very often and usually when i do its to get stoned on the resin.

It WAS A GIRL

MAYBE SHE LIKED ME ;) ;)

Cannabis edibles are a fun idea at a shitty hick flea market. I don't think that blue-haired oldster will ever quite figure out why I was laughing so much.

Rongi Jan 21st, 2012 10:49 PM

guys i'm 21 years old, 3 and a half years deep into college, at my third college and i still have no fucking idea what to major in

i thought psychology was cool until i found out literally no one takes psychology majors seriously and with good reason, most psychology students are shallow and stupid

i would major in environmental studies because apparently there's a market for that major and i guess saving the world would be cool but studying the environment sounds incredibly gay and boring

i don't think i'm smart enough to do hard science/math/engineering

economics and finance are fucking boring and classes are full of bros and girls that fuck bros

i like sociology and anthropology but i might as well major in "i wanna suck dicks behind a dumpster for the rest of my life"

i like philosophy too but see above

Zomboid Jan 21st, 2012 10:50 PM

You're only 21? NEWS TO ME :lol

Rongi Jan 21st, 2012 10:51 PM

unless i decide to go to law school, then i can pretty much major in any stupid liberal arts and it won't really matter
