i hate that people think the kardashian's ruin these men.

i reckon lamar got rob hooked on the coke and that's the dark times khloe always refers to about when rob was living in her martial home.

i make my boyfriend watch kuwtk and he has much more experience with drugs than i, and he says rob looks like a binger. he's probably done so much gear he's maxed out and fucked his serotonin levels.

Same, but when one roach dies another pops up in its place. Someone else as equally annoying will quickly show up to take up where they left off unfortunately. I feel like everyone is such a fucking exhibitionist these days. I just wanna see someone of substance take center stage for more than three seconds as opposed to the same plastic faced, beanbag chair assed nobodies.
I kinda feel you, but ehh. I mean, she'll be fine at the end of the day considering that she's a literal millionaire and has a gigantic family.

Any older anons that still haven't learned how to drive here?
Had my first driving lessons today at the age of 22. I find it kind of nerve-wracking, I have issues with turning properly. I wish I had taken classes when I was 16.

Anyone else in the same situation?

>>How do people in America get around without a car if they don't live in NYC or maybe Chicago?

Usually they carpool with family/friends, have a significant other drive them around, rely on shitty transport, bike, or live close enough to work/school/stores to walk it.

I didn't get my license until 25. I'm 27 now and live in England (from the U.S. bay area). The bus service is pretty unreliable here (often 20-30 minutes late etc) so ironically there are a lot of times I wish I had a car.

Meanwhile it took me until my mid-twenties to learn to drive because I was scared I'd kill someone.

All I can say is that it's important to have a good teacher. Just because they are paid doesn't make them good. My stepdad did a 100x better job teaching me to drive than any of the "professionals".

Driving can open up a whole new world, so I'd recommend it to any anons!


No. 209345

Oh god, I'm getting flash backs to when I first tried going to college without a car. I lived in the middle of nowhere, for perspective the drive there is 40 minutes each way. I carpooled with my aunt to there, but I had to use the bus to get to my parents place of work and then carpool home with them. I spent round 3 hours every day dealing with that bullshit, thank god I have a ride of my own at this point.

Thank you so much!

Me neither; no one in my family has a car/drives, and only a few of my friends have cars (but no time to teach). What I basically ended up doing was saving up money and getting driving lessons from a driving school. (It was ~$350 for 7 lessons + them loaning you the car for the road test. Not too bad.) Maybe there are decently priced driving schools around you? Would not hurt to take a look!

Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon the ds version (by nostalgia), and the other one (Rune Factory) also on DS.

right now i'm playing layers of fear inheritance because it's halloween and i have to play scary games during the scary season. i also did a replay of rule of rose recently and i still love that game.

when i think about it, my favorite games are generally horror-oriented. i really loved the most recent resident evil, there were a bunch of parts where i felt like i was getting hit on the head with all the references to horror movies, which was awesome.

one of my favorite games ever is deadly premonition. it's the best.

on ds i play monster hunter, harvest moon, rune factory and animal crossing. i also have a huge soft spot for the style savvy games. i love the fuck out of them, but i wish they gave you some romance, too.

speaking of romance i used to be a huge bioware fan but not so much any longer. DA:I was so bloated and boring and I was genuniely sad about that. KoTOR is still the best game, for me, with DA:O a close second.

looking forward to the new red dead redemption and i also love picking up saints row 4 or diablo 3 when i'm bored or just want to play something quick.

ITT we discuss our times having unhealthy obsessions with people. It can be any kind of obsession; romantic, hateful, wanting to wear their skin, etc.

I have an extreme tendency to cyber stalk girls I strongly dislike. The first girl I did this with was my ex best friend as a teenager. I actually found her tumblr recently and she had a few posts that seemed to be referencing me, even though it had been many years since I last contacted her.

There's been a few other girls I watch a lot online. Usually when one enters my interest, they stay there for a really long time until they start to bore me. I stalked the previously mentioned girl for 11 years and there's one who I have been for 7. Everyone else is much more recent, though.

I also stalk a few social media "influencers". It always starts out with me liking them too much and concocting this bizarre narrative of how we would be friends, but then as time goes by I start to dislike them quite a bit. I compete with them, at least in my head. With a couple of them, it's gotten so extreme that I'll have brief delusional episodes where I forget I'm not actually in their social sphere and they have no idea I even exist.

i have this stupid obsession with a girl that i met through rping. she was sweet at first but i quickly noticed that she tends to copy/blatantly steal other people's ideas and claims them as their own.

some of her bullshit:

>claimed that she was totes a transdude and getting surgery to have a dick very very VERY soon!

>turns out that she's the cissest cis girl to ever cis
>claimed to be self-employed, earning 600 bucks an hour by traveling to remote places around russia for a health insurance company?
>turns out she's actually in job training at a tiny insurance company and has to work 2 more jobs on the weekends to make ends meet
>claims to be russian and to be fluent in tons of languages (like hebrew, arabic, russian, english, german.. her english is subpar at best)
>turns out only her lame boyfriend is half-russian and has no connection to his russian roots either lmao
>currently claims to be a guy and a drag queen and her bf is a rich boy (he's not, he's a fucking plumber)

she also likes to get close to her rp partners and parades them around as "love of my life" without her boyfriend knowing anything about it. for the longest time i thought one of her "friends" was her bf but he's not even into rping.

i keep checking up on her even though it makes me seem like i have the dumbest grudge against her for all the bullshit she pulled, but she's just so funny and embarrassing to watch? literally like a car accident. i shouldn't stare but i can't look away either.

I want to be this guy's little sister even though he already has one. At first I thought it was just a lie since he runs this youtube series and I never saw his sister until I found his old tumblr where he has a picture of him and her together.
I still want to have him "adopt" me as his little sister anyways. I want him to pat me on the head and say "lil' sis" to me since I find that to be so much pure and special than being just a friend or girlfriend to him. I've seen how he treats his gfs and it's off-putting to me since he'll slap their ass and call them babe.
Maybe it's because my real big brother died and now I'm lonely without him so I want to have a substitute.
Maybe it's because I'm aromantic and asexual that I fear any other kind of relationship with a man so being a "little sister" is the best platonic relationship I can hope for.
Either way, I've been following this guy's instagram and twitter especially to see if he'll attend any con so I can go there too to hopefully see/meet him.
We can certainly pass for siblings, it's one of the reasons why I want to be his sister because we look quite alike and have similar tastes.
But I know this is fucked up and I'm still super shy so I don't think it'll ever happen.

i regularly use cannabis in concentrate form, i prefer indica strains. it's just more convenient and plus my tolerance is fucked lol. i've been smoking concentrates everyday for about 5 years now.

I used to do coke in my late teens/early twenties and I really enjoyed it. It basically cured my social anxiety completely. I know it's bad for you and expensive but I honestly had nothing but positive experiences with it. I think about it a lot, but that being said, I don't think I'll ever do it again.

In the same vein, I just don't understand how so many men think being raped is the same thing as being badly beaten up or something.

I've never been raped but just imagining the utter violation and guilt… I would rather be beaten into a coma than be raped without a single bruise.

No. 209185

>I just don't understand how so many men think being raped is the same thing as being badly beaten up or something.
I haven't seen anyone say the two are just as bad. But people do draw parallels. Assault is often used to force submission, and so is rape. The Tiberius rape scene from Spartacus comes to mind.

No. 209217

I simply think a lot of men don't understand, that the trauma is worse.
The do get that it's painful and can also be very physically damaging, and still, i think i wrote about this on lolcow before:

My younger brother is a nice normal dude, but we still had a fight over him saying that being falsely accused of rape is mentally more damaging than the actual rape itself.

If you read some rape reports; one woman i think it was in Sweden being gang raped by refugees there at some times 3 of them were inside her - how could she ever trust any men again? Sometimes even the skin between vagina and anus rips, that's not something anybody can ever get over with. I'd go as far as to say that rape is somehow even worse than murder; it not only affects the victim, but also every single person they know, their future life, tge husband or children she may never have, because it's something that will torture her for the rest of her life.

A few months ago there was even this thread about a rape victim being allowed to commit assisted suicide

No. 209219

I agree with many points but I don't feel that it is worse than murder. Murder does all of those things and on top of that it doesn't even allow the victim a chance at going on. I know many people are mentally destroyed by rape, but many others can cope and live a normal life. With murder, everyone is affected, but there's nothing that can even conceivably be done to help the victim.

No. 209279

>I'd go as far as to say that rape is somehow even worse than murder; it not only affects the victim, but also every single person they know, their future life, tge husband or children she may never have

Now that's just silly. Murder tends to put a hamper on her existing relationships too. Now I can't help but think of that professor some years back that tried to kill rape victims thinking he was helping.

Yay, spooky storytime!

When I was in my teens, my entire high school used to go on a camping trip together which was great because it always turned into a huge drug fest, but:

My friend Christa brought a Ouija board and we were fucking around with it. I remember this German exchange student that all the jock girls wanted to fuck joined us, and that was pretty funny but we were drinking and this other girl was writing down the letters in a notebook as it spelled shit out.

We asked for a spirit and waited. It dd that fast circling motion for a while, but no letters. Then all of a sudden it got very specific. There was all this weird talk about deer and deer season and the Bible. I so wish I still had this notebook page because I would totally take a picture but yeah.

Talking about deer season and then the Bible and about how all women are whores, telling us to stay away from whores and Ed or Eddie be a good boy(?) It got really weird because we were all like sixteen and not in any way thinking about weird shit like that. So we were asking who this spirit was and it kept spelling 'August' over and over again. You know how ouija boards can be super repetitive in the shit they spell out. Finally we got sick of it and tossed it in the corner.

A few years later I was telling this story to a friend and they were like come on, you don't know who it was? No.

It turns out that Ed Gein's mother was named Augusta. I officially signed off on those things after that.

This was before the internet, too, so coming by that knowledge would have been a lot tougher. It still creeps me out to this day.

Spent my entire educational career convincing myself I should be in STEM when math and science have consistently been my worst subjects. Somehow convinced myself I had a passion for those subjects. I entered uni thinking I'd get my bsc in X STEM degree and go on to grad school.

I've recently graduated and have been working in research for the past two years. I hate my job and hate what I majored in. My adviser has been pressuring me to go to grad school for months now and I feel so shitty for letting her down. I just feel so disillusioned with my life and have no idea what career to pursue.

No. 207757
