Dear John,

I have come to visit you for the first time in quite a while, and I must say that your board is dreadfully boring.
Now I know you may see this as a compliment, but I assure you that it is not. This was once a source of pride for me - conversations were held on many topics and the superiority of Pepsi-Cola was never in question. It seems that through the years you have all forgotten the statement of this board: Every conversation is uninteresting.
This does not mean that only excessively droll conversation is allowed. You may talk about anything, especially topics that may not be suited for other boards.

Why am I telling you this, John?
I fear the trends over that past year have created a circlejerk in shades of gray; every man stroking unenthusiastically and not a single climax reached. The board approaches an insipid singularity and the userbase stagnates and shrinks.

What do I feel I can do to halt this monotony?
Remove this monochrome veil.
Turn off the elevator's wail.
Take back your own names.
Move from completely uninteresting to mild interest.

This elevator music is too exciting. Please tell the drummer to tone it down a notch.

I stole a chair last night out of someone's garden, it's a bit worn but it's comfortable and higher up than my other chair

John Smith 15/01/09(Fri)05:17 No. 44071

Just the right amount, John.

the right amount of sniffly.

John Smith 15/02/28(Sat)12:51 No. 44217

My nose has got all irritated and raw on the exterior of my right nostril. I keep wanting to itch it, but know I mustn't.

This is the worst I've felt in a while.

I enjoy moments like this where someone is enjoying a simple pleasure. Do you remember when you were a child and could do stuff like this without thinking twice. Now people look at you funny unless there's some publicity involved.

When we have access to something that solved a problem we had, eventually we then downplay its importance to our lives then neglect it, can you note an exception, or can't this be avoided? This occurs on the individual and cultural level, but the cultural level is the most relevant. Consider that one.

Except for when you account for air quality.

Your post reads like you're the one that posted about people not being able to psychoanalyse others properly.

I have a reaction to poor air quality.

I stop breathing without thinking about it when the air is dusty, dry, too humid, high pollen, smells like gas, is gas, etc.

I'm not sure if it's an instinc or something I learned as a child: I had allergy and exertion triggered asthma; air quality was a matter of survival.

Every once in a while when I'm having a conversation with someone I feel as though I should have something to say but I can't think of what it might be. On a slightly related note I hate leaving messages on the phone. I always feel awkward when basically leaving a recording of me talking to myself so someone else could listen to it.

John Smith 15/02/10(Tue)05:54 No. 44195

The solution is simple. Each time you receive the answering machine, state,
"Message Receiver, this is Messenger. You know what this is about."
This form message ensures that they know why you called, and when they call you back, there is a garunteed subject of interest, whether it be Messager Receiver knowing what you want to talk about about, inquiring what you want to talk about, or you finally remembering what you wished to talk about.

In a pinch, you can explain this as an anecdote.

John Smith 15/02/24(Tue)09:08 No. 44212

I often forget particular words and settle for simplifying my sentence.

Hello John,

tell me something interesting about the city you live in,
I would find it uninterestingly amusing.

We aren't an actual city, per se. We don't have our own police force, city limits or anything else of that nature. It's called an unincorporated area. And it's nice because there are taxes we don't have to worry about here.

John Smith 15/02/03(Tue)19:02 No. 44169

No municipal taxes?

Do you pay state and federal taxes?

Is it a white supremacist cult compound?

John Smith 15/02/22(Sun)06:06 No. 44209

I live in the once called "south american paris", it's the place where tango was born aparently though I don't know if this is interesting enough.
I'm not sure what makes the city I live in special if there is anything at all, hope one of you can tell me if you've visited by chance.

I think I would rather drift around from place to place on some kind of boat and tend to my vegetable garden there the rest of my life.

Actually, if all the land were so irradiated or biologically contaminated that it became uninhabitable, and people had to spend their lives fishing and drifting around the warm oceans in boats, our species wouldn't have any reason or ability to engage in arms races and weapons manufacturing or wars, religions would only be able to spread by their own merits & not by force, & humanity would soon have nothing better to do than develop in a more positive direction.

If all-out, total nuclear or biological war leaves even 1% of the human population alive, it'd be an ideal situation.

I suppose because typically there are always a few survivors on the fringes of any extinction event for a while. Only the long reach of time kills the stragglers off eventually.

If everyone dies, it's less ideal, because there's no one left to learn anything from all of human history and all the creativity and work and effort and energy and suffering and successes of it would just have been a waste, which would be a real shame.

So with some scattered survivors being a likely possibility, all that human history would have actually had some real value. Humanity gets the luxury of a reset button push, and a new generation of humans finally has the ability to decide its future, this time with the benefit of hindsight.

Having to choose between sailing around the Caribbean fishing and relaxing in the sunshine, or competing and risking certain radiation poisoning scavenging for weapons so we can be tribal barbarians and enslave each other working in mines and industry to build machines and breed bloated unstable populations that can't afford themselves and wars over petty resources and primal tribalism... without an external threat of someone else doing it against them, no majority would choose that path, or allow a minority to impose it upon them. A world made uninhabitable would preclude that external threat.

...actually, it's not even a stretch to think relatively peaceful anarchic society would likely develop, since that's exactly what developed the originally in the Spice Islands, shaped by the comfortable environment and plentiful resources. Well, up until the arrival of Magellan's ships.

I walked out to a point on the eve of Saturalia, and took a few photos.

These are they, that is, them.
