The End wasn't The End - Found a new home after the great exodus of 2012
Thread Starter - Vent thread

Vent your frustrations here.

Right now I have some asswipe claiming that sampling in music is wrong because it’s not creative, any dickhead can do it, and it "killed black music".

The ignorance of some people…

It is ill advised to give me any area from which to vent my frustrations. I can fill an entire book with shit that pisses me off.

Zealots, of any faith or belief, or lack thereof.

Arrogant atheists and militant vegans aggravate me just as much as ignorant rednecks and religious nutjobs.
If you follow a system of belief or whatnot, that’s fine. But don’t be a dick about it.

I feel the same way about people and music. Sure you like heavy metal, but don’t go around telling people the music they like sucks.

@Feral_Socks

Feral summed up what I would have said, cept he did it in a much nicer way than I would have. Granted, my hatred is towards…particular branches of zealotry. I’ll be mum on that little tid bit to avoid offending anyone.

This, as well as:

Condescending pricks whom use the terms "gamer entitlement", "artistic integrity", and "patriarchy" without the slightest hint of irony or understanding.

People whom use the Indoctrination Theory to justify the ending to Mass Effect 3…and then praise Bioware for their ’genius’.

Related to what Feral said: Xbox One zealots. They really piss me off, since I’m a strong advocate of consumer rights.

People whom automatically presume that libertarian == objectivist.

People whom hold egregiously hypocritical double-standards. For example, people whom hold a strongly hobbesian world-view, yet get really upset when people are mean to them.

People who think having any kind of sexual fetish makes someone a bad person.

The hypocrisy of the media (by this I mean when you watch TV or something and see a ton of blood and gore, but heaven forbid that anybody should show a titty!).

When people think there’s a difference between the religious right and the radfem left.

People who justify bad spelling/grammar with "Oh, it’s – insert website here – so I’m not going to worry about how I spell! It’s not like it’s English class!" (Seriously, have some damn pride in how you represent yourself!)

And last but not least, the assholes at EA (or anyone, really) who sell me a game and then dictate what I may do with it.

Angry Immature Generalizing Massive Prick Rage Mode Engaged Bitch!!!!

Warning: PREPARE FOR ANGRY RUDENESS THAT EXAGGERATEDLY PRESENTS MY OPINIONS! GRAAAGHH!!

Internet athiests. Specifically the kind of guys you find on Youtube who like to go into videos that have nothing to do with their beliefs and just act like a smug asshole. They’re the same damn assholes they claim to be fighting/ better than/ smarter than. Newsflash morons: YOU AIN’T SMARTER! YOUR JUST AS FUCKING IDIOTIC!.


Other side isn’t any better, but the atheists seem to be FAAAAAAAAAAAAR more arrogant and smug.

(Hey me. Pot calling the kettle black. Ya prick.)

Next: the entitlement this fandom seems to have is irksome. Equestria Girls is the best example. Guess what: You guy’s ain’t the intended audience. What? A young/grown man not being the target audience for a movie about a magical pony girl in highschool? What is this madness!?

And on that note: Blaming Hasbro for change. Ever think that maybe Alicorn Twilight was the WRITER’S idea first, since the script was written in like 2012, and Hasbro, once they got the script, approved it, got to work on making the toys and such. Ever think of that possibility?

(Though EQG clearly was Hasbro’s idea. Whether that’s a bad thing depends on your personal opinion)





VEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! VEEEEEENTS!!!



And finally: Me. I’m a hypocritical, petulant little asshole and I don’t like that. Screw you, me.

I hate groups who decide that they are going to ruin someone else’s life because of some things that person might have said or done on the internet.

I understand there are some cases where certain horrible people need to be brought to justice, but those people (In my opinion) should be punished under color of law, not according to the whims of some mindless mob.

Plus, sometimes the punishment does not even fit the "crime", even though what that person might have done could be unethical, creepy, plagiaristic or downright douche-baggy, but I don’t see what’s wrong with calling those people out on what they’ve done and if they’ve breached the law or a contract, let the courts decide the correct punishment.

However, some would go so far as to ensure that person or people would never have a chance to right their wrongs and get their life back on track, even if what they did was the result of some bad choices they’ve made in their life which didn’t really hurt anyone, might have pissed a lot of people off, but didn’t really hurt anyone or preach hurt onto others.

I hate the mindless mob mentality of some people and some websites out there.

EDIT: To clarify, I mean crossing the line with actions like sending death threats to one’s home address, constantly invading that’s person’s privacy, throwing eggs at their house, and etc. (Just some examples, though.)

But calling them out for what they’ve done or said is fine with me.

Fuck social media. Orwell would have a field day with that shit.

If you’re dumb enough to hand out the details of your personal life on the Internet – which is basically what social media revolves around – you deserve every hacker, stalker, advertiser, and general misanthrope you draw the attention of.

Moreover, social media puts microphones in the hands of people who need their vocal chords ripped out. Take a random sampling of Facebook groups, and you’re pretty much guaranteed to get at least one extremist-wingnut page on par with the WBC. Sadder still, that page will have supporters.

Twitter, if anything, is even worse. Most genuinely useful and coherent opinions/messages cannot be condensed into the teensy space it gives you, leaving a space dominated by whoever can fit the most dramatic soundbyte into 140 characters. Catchphrases, taglines, and buzzwords fly around with no context whatsoever in one giant irrelevant mess.

Fuck social media.

Fuck the news. I want to hear about the situation in Syria and whether or not there is actual evidence of the Syrian loyalists using chemical warfare, NOT "Kim Kardashian is now more tan".

Also my mom annoys me a fair bit. Right now I’m staying with my family so I can pay off my school loans, but she forgets that I was away for four years and thus know how to take care of myself.

Yeah, family members who still doubt your ability to take care of yourself and insist in taking care of you; despite you proving that you can take care of yourself is quite annoying.

Duck - Like the movies Birds, but with just ducks. Ducks everywhere.
Thread Starter - Person Above You

Why does my caregiver (let’s call them "them" or "they" to avoid privacy issues) complain about me all the time? They always say that my constant eating will cause them to go poor, despite the fact that I have done it for months and we still have an average budget like we always have. They also complain about every little thing that I do wrong, and refuse to accept my abrupt anger as part of my personality, and they do not accept that I am a jerk. When I try to have a serious conversation with them, they simply make jokes and take the piss out of me. When I attempt to point out what they have done wrong with ME, and confront them about it, they accuse me of being a bully, egotistical, or arrogant. Even if that is true, I do not care nor do I plan to change.

TL;DR my caregiver is a drama queen.

…unbeknownst to anybody in real life (because the last thing my folks or myself need right now is another drama-storm), I’ve been going through a quarter-life crisis (yes, this is an actual thing; I didn’t believe it at first either).

…aaaaand I think it just got worse…

…as if my insecurities/shame with regard to fulfilling my adult responsibilities, my own competence AND my seemingly hopeless future, I’m now also grappling with pretty much ALL the implications of subjectivity; if I can’t find a way to reconcile the objective, deductive skepticism that best defends man against manipulation with the absolutist faith I’ve been raised to embrace, that would mean I have to take it at face value. To do so would be to say that the Founding Fathers, the champions of the very freedom that let’s me sort stuff like this out to begin with, are wrong; but according to the faith, if I stray away, I’ll go to hell.

…somehow I never realized how big a problem this really is; since both our senses AND minds are limited and flawed, we literally can’t trust ANYTHING 100%, which means there’s even the ever so slight possibility that something as extreme as solipsism is true. Sure, there’s stuff like math and the scientific method that are at least "sound," but much of what is often treated as fact isn’t technically quite so factual.

For example, is History subjective? And if History is subjective, then does that mean that a book that’s gone through multiple translations AND took hundreds of years to put together really is as unreliable as the naysayers say? Not to mention I haven’t won any arguments against moral relativity, which actually calls the aforementioned freedom into question. (No, seriously, is there any real reason others should leave me be?)

…and even if I didn’t go to hell, the alternatives can be scary too. I mean, how am I supposed to be okay with non-existence, especially if not only will my memory and my mark on the world inevitably become distorted, but the whole frickin’ universe will all just revert back to potential energy? (In fact, for what it’s worth, how did all that energy get released anyway? Wouldn’t it need a trigger from OUTSIDE of the closed system?) And then what about solipsism? Isn’t that pretty much "immortality blues" cranked to 11? Futhermore, if some other religiion WERE in fact the "one true religion," how am I even supposed to find it before it’s too late?

…seriously, how am I supposed to resolve all this shit?

Let me See,

I hate people who call Evangelion a Deconstruction, It doesn’t deconstruct Shit!

Everything that Eva Supposedly "Deconstructed" Was already done way before Eva was even a concept

The only thing EVA has going for it is its dark tone

And Almost every frame of Gurren lagann can be traced back to Different Super robot anime

So people calling it original is bullshit

Seriously, Can EVA fans name one actual Deconstruction that EVA has Done, Not just something that’s dark and that hasn’t been done before in previous super robot shows?

I’m just going to give one example

"The Guy who gives them the Robot/s is actually a bad guy"

Space emperor God sigma – 1980

The Mazinger Z manga also Implied that professor Kabuto wanted Kouji to use it for evil before he got killed by Dr. Hell

And The Guy who made Dangaioh was completely willing for Whoever bought Dangaioh and Its Memory wiped pilots to do whatever the hell they wanted with it

I’ve already went insane over the "PC Mustard Race" so I’ll let that pass.

You know what word I really hate because of 4chan?
Faggot.
It’s the word people use when they have no other insults to use. It’s the most pathetic word on the internet and that goes for all it’s variants.
Newfag, oldfag, pcfag, consolefag, (INSERT NOUN HERE)fag.
DO THEY HAVE ANY CREATIVITY?!
