I am prolly not being totally real myself...but I am trying at least...

 

And being real is not just sumthun you do like a fucking Eagle Scout project...it is something that takes lifetimes of fucking hard work.  So therefore to denigrate it to nothing as you seem to be doing seems almost...I dunno...kinda Satanic. To be honest.

I prefer to be extraordinary I mean fuck keeping it real! Keeping it real would have have us all talking about how we washed our balls and junk in the showers :D yeah that's totally dope, but nobody gives a shit about what y'all do in every day life. You gotta mix up yo whole style and keep 'em guessing!

The fallacy in this is that all people are real, and the term IRL, or "in real life" is a bit of a misnomer; reason being: the internet is a place; all people are real, whether you meet/interact with them on the internet or any other way, and have real lives; and that everything that happens in life is real, whether it happens on the internet, or any other place. So, anything that happens in life, wherever it happens is real, thus real life. So everything that happens, happens IRL.
 
The same people that are on the Internet are the same people that are everywhere else.



Not really, this kind of format, messageboards, are a rarer thing nowadays.

The alternatives are places like reddit, where it's a free for all, or Facebook, which annoys me no end,

The same people that are everywhere else? I'm glad reddit types, or idiot daily post pictures of my lunch types aren't here

People don't get more real when posing as how they really would like to be perceived. 

 

Never had that thought when looking at a person acting tough, or when someone's attention whoring, or when someone tries to impress someone of the other gender?

Can't believe querillabedlam wouldn't waste her 20K post on me.

 

I guess you haven't seen any pics of GB

 

Srsly though, 20k is something special. My goodness, it'd take me 2 days to figure out which post to waste it on. Probably.  Seems fitting considering the context of this thread, I'm mean is your epeen really so gigantic you'd actually spend more than a few minutes trying to figure out who to stick it in? 

 

What da fuk you going on about and what the hell does it have to do with this thread?????

considering the OP's past contributions, this bit of silliness isn't surprising.

 

I'm pretty much the same with people online as I am in person, a bit of an asshole, but usually right about what I'm being an asshole over, so I leave people in the quandary "What a fucking ass, but he is right...damn!"

a lot of that's been going on at the new job lately where I posses decades of experience compared to the months that the people in charge possess.

Bottom line is:  Why fault anybody for being who/what they are?  Why expect folks to be perfect?  Are YOU perfect?  It seems obvious you are not. ;) 

If you are REALLY real...then why not engage folks in REAL discussions, instead of getting up on your high horse and acting superior? :)  Innit? ;) 

 

So who is posing here...see...

:D

 

When I read the Bible passages about separating the wheat from the chaff, I always wonder:  "Well...then who are the chaff???  Do I know anybody like that?  Am *I* the chaff???"

 

Based on your findings tho, I am feeling comforted to realize that:  "No, it looks like MAYBE I am not, in fact, the chaff.  I am MAYBE a real person."

 

So I am grateful for your little whitepaper here, George. ;)

 

And yes, I do believe you are onto something.

The basement's fine, just use plenty of glitter, a talking Rumsfeld doll, a swatch of tan carpet (shag if you can find it) with a few burn marks and of course, a velvet Elvis.

What really sucks is knowing that a company interviewing me has plans to jettison me after they get their first set of deliverables.  It's amazing the tells some of the "smarter" HR people have.  You just have to listen and read between the lines.  What really helps is recording the whole conversation and then listening to it on the drive home.  

 

A couple of years ago a firm was offering me a "real" or "permanent" position.  I happen to know that such a thing does not exist, it's a fantasy employers toss out to make you work like a dog for 19 years and 11 months so they can toss you out without a pension.  I took the job anyway because they had no idea what a talent I have for gumming up the works.  My favorite line when they ask about something is "I'll have that finished in 3 weeks".  I can sometimes get away with that for 3 or 4 rounds before they start getting terse.  While I do my best to avoid taking advantage of individuals, I show NO mercy to corporations.  Why should I or anyone else?  Corporations are by design a predatory concept.

 

People way up in the food chain at a corporation are already positive they can fool you and that you're clearly an idiot since you don't work on the same floor.  They're the best kind to observe as they reveal themselves in obvious ways while thinking they are being SO clever since you're just a cog.  Being a psychotic nightmare in disguise cuts through all of that.  At one meeting I couldn't stop thinking about using a glass award to cold cock my boss, then break the window with it and toss him out.

 

Which is why I'm saving myself for prison.  Virgin ass trades for more smokes I hear!

I just try to do what I want while ostensibly doing whatever my boss du jour seems to be asking for.  One of my most pleasurable projects was creating a highly complex piece of "temporary" software that our clients obviously needed, even though my boss was pushing hard to just give them basic shit that would not help them much at all.  She gave me major shit over the amount of time I spent, but in the end, I did what I wanted, and our clients were ecstatic.  And that "temporary" software is still their main workhorse five years later.

 

I dunno nuthin, tho. ;) 

 

It's clear that the execs three levels above me barely even know that I exist.  

 

They could throw me to the wolves, except that my current boss, God love her, sees my value and is fighting to keep me onboard.

 

That is the thing, see:  Sometimes God sends an angel on our behalf.

 

I know wut you are saying tho about being a psychotic nightmare in disguise.  I kinda don't think I would ever take that road, but I know how if I wanted to.

 

And it's not that they would not deserve it...cuz:  They would. ;) It is just that:  I have other considerations.

I have been posting on this thing on and off since twelve years of age--I am now 26 going on 27... sometimes this place makes facebook look sane, at this point.

Regardless of belief, there is a sense of anarchy and gratitude that I have never quite found anywhere else and I could be a total pretentious a-hole, back in the day--maybe sometimes still am, but I have learned to tone it down over the years. 

All I can ask anyone to do is try to be reasonable, in life.

although my daily driver is a 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250... in Jupiter Red,

The same people that are on the Internet are the same people that are everywhere else.


I agree. People are people, online or real life, they're people. It's just I think that there is a split between people online and in person.

There is a movie that I watched a long time ago on Lifetime that I think explained this separation, split, whatever you want to call it fairly decently. In this movie a girl that was completely normal in real life drove another girl to commit suicide. And she did this over the Internet. Obiviously, this thread is not about cyberbullying, or anything like that. But, the point is that with all the trolls, memes, and all that stuff that only happens online... there is a huge difference in atmosphere between people online and in real life. So, the same person can be completely different in real life in comparison to online. Things like morality is different as well. For example, it's easier to insult someone online than in person. It's easier to be whatever identity, or no identity online, while you have to be someone in person. And the list goes on. It's just different, even though we are all dealing with people, and it's the same person that we're dealing with.

With that kind of dehumanization and impersionalization it can be tricky having a life online and in person, while attempting to be the same person in both realities.
