Hey John. Day 38. I am tired. I didn't want to do anything and I'm tired of being at home all the time. The only good thing that I found a new hobby I can do in my garden - it's wood working. Does John like the same?
What are your new hobbies due the pandemic?

The taxi missions get you a ton of money too, and when you do enough you get hydraulics in the taxis or something, I forget. Great way to make money for guns early on though

woodworking too. That's a nice hobby John

John Smith 20/10/17(Sat)15:04 No. 47540

I like all of it - woodworking, gardening, building. I like spend my time doing something useful for my house and backyard. Malibu garden tools user manuals helped me so much because I've lost some important instructions. If someone is interested take the tip http://malibu.manymanuals.com/garden-tools

Average people is stupid thread

Excuse my grammar, i'm not a native english speaker.

The average person with average intelligence is actually quite stupid, toxic, selfish, and they follow the group, they act as a whole, they worship celebs and ridiculous amounts of money like they are the more important things in the world, they listen of what is more repeated on the radio, they worship imaginary gods because their parents told to do it, they follow only one political party because that's the way is written, they look for the meaning of the universe despite the fact it doesn't need one, they eat what publicity tells them to do, they watch garbage television all day; and despite the fact of having the biggest encyclopedia in the planet (internet) they get bored on a quarantine on their own homes, they follow challenges like if it is necessary, they get involved into toxic relationships and simp because they “deserve love” like if having a partner is vital, TikTok makes us realize that and that's why we hate it.

Sorry if it sounds like i have a superiority complex, i don't and i also have weaknesses.
Aslo Reddit is a joke, i posted this on /r/unpopularopinion and i had to delete it because it got too much hate.

Dear John, At first I was not going to read your post, Because the average person is of average intelligence. There's little more needed to be said there.
Well then read the reply real quick and so read your post.
On thinking about it, it's been this why for as long as I've been alive and that's a good 40+.
Newspapers, radio, television and computers. Have just help make it more obvious.
Teach yourself how block the dumb culture. You will have few friends, yet you will be happier.

I'm glad you got speak your mind, though.

Humans are sentimental creatures that use logic to get what they want.
That's why politics and philosophy are popular in adulthood.
Obsessing over abstract and metaphorical constructs are "easier" than physical science.

Hello, John.

I have been doing some music recently. And i made a tra k out of nowhere which i think would fit this atmosphere very well. I'm just going to say one thing before-hand. I'm not here to promote my music. I just want your opinion if this suits the board.
Anyway, here it is: amornebrolmo.bandcamp.com/track/a4tone
If you want i can make a loop for this.

Yours truly,
John Smith.

John Smith 20/09/27(Sun)12:29 No. 47526

Hi John,

I like the atmosphere you're going for but the higher frequencies really mess with my speakers. Not sure why you chose to use them so extensively.

That aside I quite enjoyed what I got through although I'd remove the static/noise track you've overlayed on everything and give the whole thing a cleaner sound, but that's just a preference.

Kind Regards,

I tried to ride my bike up a sloped embankment behind the supermarket today but I didn't hop off fast enough so I lost my balance and toppled over onto my back. I didn't get hurt, just dirty. No one saw. I'm grateful for that.

This store is closed now but the building is still there. It's an interesting building, though, so that's not for here.

Never forget that we're all human, John. Even if someone saw you, I'd expect more a moment of camaraderie and compassion than derision.
I recently had a similar escapade, myself. I took my push scooter off a curb, no different from any other time, but I landed wrong and bent the entire middle platform. I'm quite disappointed with myself, but so is life.

John Smith 20/08/20(Thu)03:13 No. 47510

I had to stop riding my scooter. I was developing a weird charley horse feeling in my calf that I didn't like. I miss Scooter McGavin.

I was feeling awful. Exhausted, uninspired, hopeless and all that. So I thought to myself, maybe I should wash this huge pile of dishes. Will it make me feel better? Well, not doing it sure isn't making me feel any better.

So I washed them, and now I feel a little better.

I clicked on this board because I wanted to see some particularly uninteresting conversation. I wasn't sure if it would be fun or not, but I clicked on it anyway, and then I saw your thread. It was kind of eh, so I guess the board lived up to the name.

John Smith 20/08/19(Wed)20:07 No. 47506

These little steps are the sort of thing necessary to beat back depression, John. We're not here because we're happy people. I'm proud of you for doing the dishes. I hope this is merely a precursor of things to come.

Dear John,
I heard about high schoolers having a 2000s party, which sounded strange until I realised it's 2018 and most of the seniors that graduated earlier this year were born in 2000. It's trippy to think about as an older John who remembers growing up in the 90s. I think I'm having an age related crisis. Any other Johns relate? Young enough to be treated without respect by younger immature people, but not old enough to be talken seriously by the older generation.

This is common. Every generation goes through this. Ours just happens to coincide with the information age and reading about it online.

John Smith 18/10/24(Wed)00:32 No. 46724

Try being an old man John who remembers growing up in the 60s and 70s.

On the other hand computer technology kind of grew up alongside me so it's been helpful to understand how systems work based on how previous systems worked, since most "modern" operating systems inherited large sections of their code from "old" operating systems.

Remember that the next time you hear one of those punks yammer on about how outdated something is, since most of that outdated code still lives inside that shiny overpriced fisher price toy they call a phone.

John Smith 20/07/29(Wed)07:34 No. 47487

Hate to rain on OP's parade, but I'm kind of getting tired of any era of people feeling entitled to the entirety of culture.
There's nothing wrong with wanting to remember your childhood, but please don't make it your political statement.
People nowadays are hitting nostalgia like it's puberty except they never grow out of it. And they think old critique to any current-day problems are ahead of it's time even though said problems have been going on for decades and centuries.

Adults are becoming more childish and self-righteous because of it.
It's not just Boomers. The late Gen X and early Millennials are even worse.

>Remember that the next time you hear one of those punks yammer on about how outdated something is, since most of that outdated code still lives inside that shiny overpriced fisher price toy they call a phone.

Now you know how I feel about old men who whine about gangster rap while listening to hard rock.

Are people only able to talk about politics and philosophy?
Or can they get over themselves and have some appreciation for natural science?

People seems to think every natural disaster or common phenomenon is a conspiracy or divine/psychosomatic effect.
If I talk about natural science they seem dumbfounded or they deny it as "blasphemous scientists trying to disprive God", or "controlled media".

Most of our literature read by 30+ is either self-help, politics, philosophy.

Like seriously, how many inspirational cliches do I have to see on homepages or bumper stickers?

John Smith 20/07/09(Thu)15:38 No. 47445

Hi John,

Point of note; If you want to talk about natural science might I suggest starting a conversation covering a subject within the scope. Talking about talking about a subject leads to fruitless banter and I suspect you are in pursuit of something of substance.

This morning I ate three biscuits with my coffee.
Usually I only eat two, but it happens I am hungry after that. And being hungry is uncomfortable.

This. I can still feel full from dinner 12 hours prior to waking up and shitting.
If I eat, it makes me tired. Maybe because my stomach has to process it all, so I need to nap.
Alas, my mother doesn't seem to agree with me.

John Smith 20/07/11(Sat)05:24 No. 47451

Dear John,

What do you usually eat? Or rather, what quantities are you eating? That might be what is causing the dowsyness. Personally, I have a small breakfast and that seems to keep me energized. Then again I also have a cup of coffee which could be the actual reason for my energy.

Best regards,

Since I bought a house life has become so much more /eh/. It's what I was hoping for and more.
People that live ten houses down the road greet me. I have no idea of who they are or if we even have any shared interests, but enjoy the interaction and their friendly manner. An older lady that's moving away came to my door and asked me if I wanted to have her old chair. It's a very nice and comfortable chair.
Doing the dishes while looking out the window at the garden that's slowly becoming my garden is very soothing. One of the nicer customers at work turns out to live a few houses down the street. We say 'Hi, neighbour!' now when he comes in.
Today I found myself looking for one of those enamel house number plaques. All in all, pretty ok.

Hello, John.

It's been a long, long time since I last wrote to you. I find that I have moved on from internet culture and websites such as these in general yet here I am, again, indulging in the nostalgia of this grey scale page and the soothing tones of Tenpenny Tower. Curiosity is a dangerous feeling, John, but I find myself comforted to know that my exploration of the past reveals that nothing has changed around here. In my years of absence, you will likely be unmoved to know, that life has continued on in a distinctly uninteresting manner and the day-to-day happenings have settled into a mundane and repetitive regime. No longer a young adult, and instead an adult proper, the so called rat-race fits me just fine and I struggle to see why those around me and those I once called friends have failed to settle down and wear the mantle of "adult" with contempt.

How about you, John? Most of us discovered this place in our teens and have grown up a lot since this board, and this website, was created. Do you still visit this place as often as you used to? How is your adulthood coming along?

Regards, John.

People seem to thing angst and insecurity is only " young people stuff". Or rather, young people have no right to feel uncertain bc "muh optimism"/"joy of youth".
