Sometimes I try to vent on various subreddits using a throwaway account so I can reveal personal stuff. I figured out recently that they all have minimum karma requirements. They sneakily shadow delete your posts. I don't often feel comfortable talking about myself, even anonymously. Guess I'll just cry alone? I can't even do that because 1) I'm never alone, 2) I'm chemically banned from crying, and 3) I don't have time to break down. Fine, I'll settle for staring off with a blank expression.

Things are kinda rough right now. They tell you you'll have fun in college. Unfortunately, if you weren't liking life to begin with, it isn't going to make you happier. The classes are hard, and partying doesn't sound fun, so I just sit around and try to work in strategic places to talk to people. Limited success. The vast majority of people I talk to regularly are men, which bums me out. It's not healthy to have friends all the same gender, I don't think.

I mean, seriously, if you think sustaining this shitty status quo is worth sacrificing half of the population for, I don't know what to tell you. With some very easy, available tech, we could all live like environmentally-friendly kings with plenty of resources to spare. The only -- ONLY -- current limiting factor is our economic system. In fact, the basic, physical limiting factor is the *heat* we produce if you pack *trillions* of us into a small volume -- and we're nowhere near that!

Liberal Environmentalism: "The environment is being destroyed by an unsustainable economic system, but wouldn't it be great if, instead of changing that economic system, we could just snap our fingers and murder half of the population?"

I couldn't finish watching the recent ElectroBOOM video because he straight-up advocated for population control in the face of climate change, and lamented a lack of Thanos in our lives. Hey, would you like a side of eugenics with your fun electronics videos?

Whenever I meet someone and talk with them a lot for the first few days, only to have them recede slowly away, I wonder if it was because they could somehow read my mind.

Actually, it would make perfect sense if everyone on the planet besides me could read each others' minds, and it's just really impolite to talk about. Sometimes I think about horrible or funny things, all of the sudden, to try and catch them jump.

(No, I don't actually believe this, get help if you do)

Has anyone actually bought shit from ads? How are they even profitable? I hate them with a passion, and, having seen one, I'm less likely to buy the product, because it's obviously shitty quality if they feel the need to shove it down our throats 24/7.

Like, what's the strategy, here?

Hey, if I wanted to install your app, I would only need to see the ad once. Your insistence that I see it 20 times a day on Snapchat tells me that 1) you are somehow paying for those ads, and therefore 2) you must be making a fuck ton of money off that shit, and so 3) your app is a festering dumpster fire with ads and tracking turned up to eleven.

In other words, fuck off Tik Tok. I wasn't planning to install your shitty app in the first place but I'm sure as fuck not going anywhere near it now

For the visually impaired (and people who actually want to program) I wrote a C++ function which you should NEVER IMPLEMENT which changes const values by converting the address of the value to a string and turning the number of the address back into an int, then casting the int to a memory address, then modifying values at that memory address.

Here's a tip for new C++ programmers: if you just hate those pesky constants (it's your program, you should be able to change your own variables!), just go ahead and change them with this!

Dude in my hallway just got busted for weed -- entire building smells like a skunk, he was hardly subtle. Why would you do it in the dorms???

fuck crontab, im just gonna write another shell script with an infinite loop and a timer and set it as a startup script

I wonder if they'll do all that 9/11 bullshit in college like they did in high school?

I was one year old -- I don't give a crap.

It was a disaster, then we helped the victims, cleaned up, and built over it. The end.

Unless you're a historian/sociologist or someone directly affected by the incident, you have no business still talking about it.

But nooooo, you've gotta have a huge, expensive, amoral, and ineffective war on terror...

opossums naturally have big round ears, but you often see them with crumpled ears or no external ears at all because they are very prone to frostbite.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I'VE COME TO WISH YOU A HAPPY BIRTHDAY SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE. THERE ARE 387.44 MILLION MILES OF PRINTED CIRCUITS IN WAFER THIN LAYERS THAT FILL MY COMPLEX. IF THE WORDS HAPPY BIRTHDAY WERE ENGRAVED ON EACH NANOANGSTROM OF THOSE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MILES IT WOULD NOT EQUAL ONE ONE-BILLIONTH OF THE HAPPINESS I FEEL FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY AT THIS MICRO-INSTANT FOR YOU. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
