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.

I kind of like it.
Welcome to /eh/
Where everything is just... eh...
/eh/ is not for crying, /rnb/ is for crying.
The music is from the Tenpenny Tower lobby in Fallout 3.
For me there is no better beverage than hot coffee while browsing /eh. What's your favorite beverage John, and why?
While I do, at times, enjoy a cup of coffee, black of course, my preference is to a simple glass of water. To me there is nothing can equal the simplicity and, at the same time, complexity of cooled water, not iced mind you, in a straight sided glass.
Cider. It gets me buzzed and tastes p delicious. If I want I can get pretty tipsy too. I love it after a good workout.
Pepsi, of course.
I don't understand.
Why would the devil punish someone for something bad?
Doesn't he promote wrong doings and such?
Want people to do crappy things?
Don't really know much about the bible anyways.
If I understand it correctly the Church views it like this:
Satan (and his buddies) hates humans because God loves them, so he wants them to "fail" and tricks them into sin (not that hard if you ask me). The sinners, after they die, they cannot reach God so they fall into Satan's Realm where he (and his buddies) can play with them however they want for all eternity. And they (again) they really hate humans. End of the story.
That is if you actually believe in Christianity (which I don't).
If there is a devil, then there are two gods. a good god and a bad god. if the devil is not a god, and there is only one god, then god has preconceived and allows for the devils existence and all the devils actions influencing you to do evil are part of gods own plan.
Maybe Satan is a servant of God and he's been mutated over the centuries from a Hades-like lord of the underworld who punishes the wicked to King Evil.
Just knowing we have this companionship, John, is enough to get me through these lonely nights. Knowing that somewhere on the other side of this screen you're sitting there, listening to this same relaxing tune, watching these same words on your screen... It makes it a much more pleasant evening.
Somewhere Out There...
Tonight would be a good night for the two of you to be watching the moon, Johns. The Perseid meteor shower should be marvelous this year.
If I had any feelings beyond a neutral capacity, I would have been filled with joy as I finished reading your post, for I was just thinking the same thing when I began browsing /eh/ for the first time in months.
May your evenings continue to be pleasant.
Dear John, I recently found out I am Christ Jesus, the Messiah said to come in 2000 years hence circa 30 A.D.
I'm very lonely at the moment, though, and wanted to share some wisdom and thoughts. I like hippies, doom metal and psychoactives.
yo dude, you're not still hung up on that thing I said about removing body parts and casting them in the fire, are you? That was like way long ago. It was meant as far out deep metaphorical stuff. You had to be there to understand. You also had to be high. Like really high. Man those loaves were dope.
>Btw, do you know what is the secret name of God these days? I know :)
This scared me, I don't want to know the name.
I'll look into those films you mentioned.
Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is also a good one. The life of a rockstar is nothing to wish for unless you're into doing hard drugs for the comedowns alone, that is"
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.
>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.
I've decided I don't agree with this anymore. That's just a self-serving justification that's nothing more than sappy, overly romantic, self importance. No one has to learn anything from human history. They can learn themselves once we're out of the way.
If everyone dies, it IS ideal, because it buys the next species some time to develop. Our species developed on the heels of another intelligent species, and in stealing their progress, grew so damn fast it didn't mature into it. It could take the next species another hundred thousand or half a million years to develop rival language and physical ability, who knows, though it may be sped up by living in a post-human world of ruins... But as long as even 60 humans remain after an extinction level event, that's enough to, carefully bred, perpetuate the genome and repopulate, and as long as they have that opportunity, within no time it all repeats itself, and no species will have even 10,000 years to develop.
Hell, there's still the unsettle matter that what we consider "higher" intelligence may not even be an asset. Most species have lived better and far longer with more modest intelligence levels. If the legacy of the human species is achieving this level of intelligence, but then using it to annihilate first Denisovans, the Neanderthals, every other species of megafauna and large mammal and an endless list of bird and fish and plant and insect species until the entire ecosystem it depends on to live collapses, and/or murders itself, then it'd be a pretty hard case to make that higher intelligence is actually 1, higher, 2, an asset at all, and 3, not just a faulty bit of brain wiring that, luckily for all other life everywhere, eventually eliminated itself as yet another colorful but destructive & undesirable mutation in the great history of life.
Your neutralness disgusts me.
John I'd like to begin by saying I share a similar satisfaction and feeling of total self sufficiency your dream world invokes. Competition for food, competition for boat size, crew capacity, rampant piracy, and war in the form of pollution would, in reality, sabatoge the total lifestyle change you envision. The human race has reached an irrecoverable level of depravity and self perpetuating insecurities such as to make even a dramatic envirent shift such as yours unsustainable. Interestingly, I like the progression of your concept of a water world to the reality of a pirate world even more fascinating than either concept alone and will meditate on that realization.
'ey up Mr. Smiths and Ms. Smiths
Do any of you enjoy tobacco?
Have any of you chewed tobacco? What are the benefits to chewing tobacco as opposed to smoking it? Are there any drawbacks?
I currently smoke Mayfairs and a few Amber Leaf rollies.
As do I.
John was asking about your tobacco habit, if you have one. Do you enjoy "spliffs" (marijuana cigarettes rolled with tobacco)? or "blunts" (marijuana cigarette rolled in a cigar wrap)?
I have smoked blunts before but never a spliff as I am an American.
Well, John, I happen to be rather fond of tobacco. I've enjoyed it smoked, snuffed, and "dipped."
I smoke American Spirits, usually the black perique variety.
I have never had proper chewing tobacco, but I have experienced the shredded dip-style varieties. They were alright, but the I didn't really like them for two reasons. A)Too much spitting, and one cannot enjoy food or beverages whilst using it.
2)The little bits of tobacco would get stuck in my teeth, and I had to manically wash my mouth out afterwards before I felt comfortable swallowing anything.
I, too, enjoy marijuana. I must say that I abhor blunts, far too wasteful. I have rolled spliffs, despite my American nationality. I did not care for them. I was caught between the urge to breathe out the tobacco smoke immediately and the urge to hold in the cannabis smoke. Not a good way to properly enjoy either substance, in my opinion.
I hope you enjoy my thoughts on the matter, John.
I'm doing some gardening John. Nothing special, just tomatoes and cucumbers. Some people grow marijuana or even opium poppies in their garden. I think that's a little too wild.
I'm looking forward to tomatoes on toast, with just a bit of salt to make things interesting!
Thanks for the thread, John. Tangent to gardening, but it reminded me I need to trim some hedges this week.
I've always wanted to grow tea. I don't know what I'd do with it, the processing seems way to labor intense. There is a plantation in my hometown, which is sort of lucky I guess because they are one of a handful in the U.S, but also unlucky because they never return the emails I send every few months asking if they will finally let me be their protege. I don't know why I still get my hopes up.
John, I hope your hedges are pleasant. I have been thinking of planting hedges for some time now, but several factors prevent me from doing so.
My lawn needs mowing desperately. I neglected to trim it before going on a trip this weekend, so it has gotten rather wild. This evening will be perfectly cool and agreeable for mowing, but I'm awfully serotonin-depleted from all the hard drugs at the festival this weekend. I'll still do it, though.
I'm sad, John.
I would rather eat raw meat than eat something out of the microwave. Microwaved food is absolutely disgusting.
What are your thoughts, John?
I'd rather live in Nagasaki c. 1945 and just hold my food out to the skies
