I don't even know why people try to make book forums anymore

    I have this routine, I read a book that engages me on some level. Maybe I like it, maybe I don't, but it has the positive quality that it makes me want to talk to someone about it. Sometimes I want to yell about it, sometimes I want to speak quietly about my feelings around the subject of that book. But in any case it feels somehow significant to convey my impressions to someone else. In these dark moments of my life, wherein I don't know any real flesh and blood humans who have read this particular work, I turn to the internet to engage in conversation. It is at such times that I am confronted with "internet literature forums" and I come to doubt the fundamental faith in humanity that previously underlined my participation in society. Here I see people who not only manage to spectacularly manage to miss the point of the book in question but manage to embody it's (fairly shallow, obvious) point in their vapid fucking heinous replies. Like I read what these people have to say and I think "why the fuck did this dipshit even bother reading the book? Why not just watch american idol or something and save some time?". Man, intellectual elitism bothers me but on an authentic level I just can't sympathise people who take time out of their day to post on a forum who don't apparently have then capacity to read a book on a fucking book forum. Like jesus, I get it, sometimes my gut can't handle literature or whatever, but ostensibly these people have actually managed to grasp the skeletal structure of the novels they think they're making commentary on and yet the most simple devices of allusion or allegory are totally lost on their frankly transparent proletariat psychologies.

    Like yeah, I'm up my own ass with self indulgence but got DAMN you'd think people who went through the effort of seeking out a literature forum would have the base level intelligence to discriminate between INTENSE STUPIDITY and not obviously bad taste

    People are horrible. I was on a Frasier fan forum back in the day, and everyone was talking like they do on that show. Jesus fucking christ, it's not even an intelligent show, it's a show about intelligent, upper class people and it's at their expense!

    You're typing like I did when I went through my "intelligent" phase a few years ago, when I read The Great Gatsby and then was obsessed with stuff the masses found too nerdy. I didn't REALLY know any big words, so I kept throwing in words I did know but rarely used, like

    wherein

    spectacularly

    embody

    vapid

    heinous

    elitism

    grasp

    Etc, etc, but I'd also throw in a few low-brown, casual words and phrases like

    Man,

    Like yeah,

    dipshit

    to fool myself into thinking I wasn't as pretentious as I was trying to be.

    Then I would try to find these smart communities and get pissed because I saw myself in them. I was having an identity crisis. I just wanted to be loved. And if that meant pretending to be a girl on the internet, then so be it.

    Gotta go, american idol is on!

    Lanny, just do mdma already and stop being such a phony. Be yourself for fucks sake. You'll be a lot happier in the long run.

    Never read The Great Gatsby! It was always set up in contrast to Catcher in the Rye which is a book I never really felt any love for but have sort of come around to have a certain nostalgia for, obviously a book you've read. I probably don't use most those words very often, and authenticity is something that I think about a lot, but then I don't use any words very often and I don't really know what an authentic person looks like any more. I don't really see how MDMA is going to make the quality of posters on literature fan forums improve and correspondingly how it's going to make me happier, but hell, if it's a drug I guess I'll give it a try.

    How do you know I've read Catcher in the Rye? I have, but only because people kept saying that he fucks his sister in the end, which never happened. I was disappointed.

    I've also read a couple of dickens books, which are fucking shit. I bought the whole collection during my intellectual phase.

    MDMA takes away your ego and makes your real self come out. Your inner child or whatever. It's amazing, and it stays with you if you let it.

    It's wierd, you talk about MDMA like it's some transcendent thing and classical psychedelics like they're nothing.. Can't say I've tried anything labeled MDMA directly but MAPB-5 and 6 and FA-4 and all of them were fun but nothing even touched on the mind-fuck transformative experience that lysergamides have been for me.

    Regardless tho, Dickens is, always has been, and for ever will be, shit.

    I hate discussing anything "intellectual". Fuck your view on shit you haven't written yourself. You think your fucking opinion matters you piece of shit student dude? Fuck you.

    LOL, that wasn't aimed at you Lanny. I guess you can read it that way,though. Haha.

    Discussing the ideas of other people and feeling elitaire(?) about it is pissing me off. It is what RDFRN was at it's core.

    WTF RisiR? I knew you would not be able to keep your word. You ginger bitch asshole wiperer. We could have been friends. Or at least friendly aquantiences. But no, you can't help but be a rude fucking cunt every chance you get. No wonder you're a mess of a person with no self esteem, no friends, no job and no direction in life. Enjoy choking on my fumes.

    The numbers in chemical notation have little to do with order of appearance or a sequence of some sort. Instead, they indicate in which position on the carbon ring the halogen(in this case fluorine) atom is bound.



    You start to count from the position in which the rest of the molecule begins assigning it the number one then take the shortest route to the Fluorine(F) or whatever you're substituting. Second position is called Ortho, third position is called Meta and the fourth position is called Para.

    Therefore the proper notation starts off with the number then follows with the rest of the acronym. So when we speak of para(4)-halogenated(F)-amphetamines(A) we know we have substituted an atom of the halogen group on the periodic table to the fourth position on the carbon ring belonging to amphetamine.

    What's the difference between actually being an asshole and pretending to be an asshole as 'bait'?

    Sometimes the way it seems is all anyone can see.

    I'm sorry, Obbe. The difference is the intention. Usually I try to be hurtful but this time I wanted to have some fun at your expense.

    Still a bitchmove. I see your point but I'm still really enjoying your reaction. Haha.

    You mad?

    The point is that your intention is irrelevant. The outcome is exactly the same regardless of your intention: If all anyone can see is that you're an asshole it doesn't matter if you were trying to be a clown, everyone just thinks you're an asshole.

    Anyway the reaction that you enjoy so much was actually just my attempt to mimic the way you react to people, like recently when you got all worked up over a picture I posted and you asked me to stop talking to you. Haha. You sure do have some funny emotional problems.

    LOL

    I understood your attempt at mimicing me you dumbass. That's what I liked.

    Can you please stop talking to me? You are very pathetic and I'd rather not waste my time with you. Thank you.

    You like it when people make fun of you? Your emotional problems are deeper than I thought. I'll talk to you whenever I feel like it and won't give two shits about what you want. Nobody is forcing you to read it, dummy.

    Have you never laughed about yourself, Obbe? You shouldn't take this forum stuff so seriously. Seriously.

    ^says the guy who constantly informs us of his life's failures and frustrations including his constant contemplation about suicide. Why don't you just laugh about it RisiR? Why are you so serious? Learn to be like me and maybe you wouldn't hate life so much.
