The internet sucks Anonymous 04/18/2021 (Sun) 13:20:43 No. 3705
It really does It’s toxic It’s full of people who act like they care but step on you like a roach the internet is making me go insane it hurts to think of anything
>>3705 It can suck but there are specks of nice things on it
>>3705 Literally go outside. My life improved drastically when I deleted all my shit and started going outside and hanging out with people more.

>>3705 Someone was pretending to care on the internet?
>>3707 That doesn't solve anything because there's a lot of assholes IRL too. Some are loud and obnoxious, while others are quiet and manipulative. I had to work with some of them, so I couldn't even get away from them (without quitting, but the next job would probably have some like them too). IRL you have to deal with those people, but on the Internet you can simply ignore them completely and not even acknowledge they exist. Anyway here's an old joke about Internet. It was posted on Usenet long ago.
From: Tai Jin <tai@nexus.hpl.hp.com> The "Information Superhighway" Highway Free speech is such a slippery little eel... Just when you think the Constitution has it right, you run into an interpretation that fails the "common sense / bull shit" test. Perhaps an analogy will serve... Think of the computer highway AS a highway. There it is again. Some clueless FOOL talking about the "Information Superhighway." They don't know JACK about the net. It's NOTHING like a Superhighway. That's a BAD metaphor. Yeah, but suppose the metaphor ran in the OTHER direction. Suppose the HIGHWAYS were like the NET. All right! Severe craziness. A highway HUNDREDS of lanes wide. Most with potholes. Privately operated bridges and overpasses. No highway patrol. A couple of rent-a-cops on bicycles with broken whistles. 500 member VIGILANTE POSSES with nuclear weapons. 237 ON RAMPS at every intersection. NO SIGNS. Wanna get to Ensenada? Holler out the window at a passing truck to ask directions. AD HOC traffic laws. Some lanes would VOTE to make use by a single-occupant-vehicle a CAPITAL OFFENSE on Monday through Friday between 7:00 and 9:00. Other lanes would just SHOOT you without a trial for talking on a car phone. AOL would be a giant diesel-smoking BUS with hundreds of EBOLA victims and a TOILET spewing out on the road behind it. Throwing DEAD WOMBATS and rotten cabbage at the other cars most of which have been ASSEMBLED AT HOME from kits. Some are 2.5 horsepower LAWNMOWER ENGINES with a top speed of nine miles an hour. Others burn NITROGLYCERINE and IDLE at 120. No license tags. World War II BOMBER NOSE ART instead. Terrifying paintings of huge teeth or VAMPIRE EAGLES. Bumper mounted MACHINE GUNS. Flip somebody the finger on this highway and get a WHITE PHOSPHORUS GRENADE up your tailpipe. Flatbed trucks with ANTI-AIRCRAFT MISSILE BATTERIES to shoot down the KRUD Traffic Watch helicopter. A little kid on a tricycle with a squirtgun filled with HYDROCHLORIC ACID. NO OFFRAMPS. Now THAT'S the way to run an Interstate Highway system.
it's more of a mixed blessing anyone can be assholes with minimum consequences groups of assholes can team up and make peoples lives living hell but alot of careers started and almost every info out there can be accessed by everyone (unless you're in china) and creativity is king

>>3705 never go on the internet expecting good things. it's like a jungle; you should focus on survival and finding the things you need, but you'll eventually stumble upon some nice spots. i deleted all of my social media in favor of image boards and direct messaging, works a lot better that way because i'm not as emotionally invested as i would be.
>>3717 Yeah, I got rid of my Facebook account a long time ago. It was well worth it considering the whole thing was just a waste of time for me. I started off with social media just to stay in touch with my friends, but we ended up drifting apart anyway.
yes wel the lord is a dramatic faggots. he licks the atheist who has the same butt like his no wonder heaven dont come free now his randos are housed here. fucking shits.
>>3705 you mean like the doctors?
kiss feet then cut hands massive kek
if IRL were that good people wont need to invent phones
>>3880 why have religion since IRL were that good
no need to beg and pray if IRL were that awesome
>>3705 lol
>>3705 lol heaven is so worthless anyway
>>3705 lol if yer god wanted u that bad why r u still here cunts. guess a liar's child is another liar.
it does, find small communities you can interact with, they tend to be less toxic. Plus you kinda know when a community is toxic after a first glance. Just be smart with it.

>>3717 I like this, it's much easier and I become less impulsive with my screen time. Instead of being on the screen all day I use my computer for an hour or two at night before sleeping. than ontop of it the image boards give me the lil' ol' dopamine release here and there. Plus I get really anxious anytime I use social media. Not sure why but I know it correlates with social media.
>>3713 this actually sounds really cool I wish life were like this
>>3705 some things are good. As with most people, the big places are shit.
>>3713 I miss that internet
Stay away from toxic places on the internet (Large social media platforms like twitter/reddit/4chan/facebook or places that congregate to discuss politics) and stick to smaller fourms and such with active disscussion (even if the pph is low).
