MrSid: Yeah they got a word for guys like that, it's called looser!


You have a comma where a period should be. You have also written the word "loser" written with a superfluous "o." I agree with what you're trying to say, but you should still work on your syntax.

RenownedCurator: I got a very weird impression, reading through this, that this guy subconsciously believes that if he doesn't marry, work, or have children, he also won't die -- that by hitting the pause button on everything else he'll manage to avoid aging. Probably because he juxtaposed one friend's becoming a parent with another friend getting a late-stage cancer diagnosis. But beneath the worn-out, third-rate hipster writing style the guy just sounds paralyzed and afraid.


That was one of, if not the most, insightful analyses of a Psyche I have read in years. Thank you.

phedus: From a girl's standpoint, "novelty" sex usually sucks deluxe, and not in the good way. Been with Mr. Phedus for 8 years (not married, and were separated for one of those years). The sex with someone compatible and attractive, with a brain, who you are comfortable with is and always will be a billion times better than any novelty. I'm also not a viciously dependent and jealous she-beast, though, and we still put forward the effort to keep it interesting... Furthermore, my genitals are not "tired".


I totally agree. My wife and I are 34 without rugrats. We don't want them, we know ourselves well enough to be fine with that.

I know the "writer" hasn't spent a lot of time with one person sexually. If he had, he'd know that two folks that are hot for each other over the long term get better with practice. Each year of our lives seems like the best sex year yet =O)

quoinguy: the point is class-jumping


Maybe that's the difference. More young people are ambivalent (at the least) about class.

The lower class is downtrodden, sure. They might want to try to jump ahead. But most feel/realize they'll never break the cycle of poverty.

The middle class does OK, but is in decline. They did all the right things, but they have to work harder and harder just to tread water. I'm guessing the author comes from here.

The upper class are seen as thieves who have more than they need. Would a moral person want to join them?

And with all that being said, it doesn't take much to drop out. Internet, beer, and pizza isn't that expensive.

Actually, there's something kinda zen about it. Stop striving to get ahead, to reach to meet goal after goal, and just be happy. A modern day monk.

/the author is still a douchebag

Need Help Soonish: Pichu0102:

I will tell you what I've seen. I've seen families in trouble with money. I've seen people who I am certain simply wanted to kill me just because they saw me. I've seen people lose their jobs because the company they worked at decided to get bought over to another state so the CEO could pocket extra cash. I've seen those people go to one of the few companies left hiring that abuses them with horrible bosses and co-workers and they have no choice but to shut up and take it because no one else is hiring. I've felt people who secretly regret having kids and secretly hate them because of it.
I have not seen true happiness anywhere, save for on the faces of sociopaths. I have never seen anyone who thinks that they've truly enjoyed life and aren't telling a giant lie.

Bad stuff happens, therefore, happiness is a lie.

You are either VERY young, or very delusional, or have no concept of what "Happiness" really is.

You know what? They told me I was gonna die when I was 15. They amended it to "Well, your not gonna die now, but your gonna be lucky if you make it to 35"

Knowing how many years you have sort of puts things into perspective.

YOU are responsible for your happiness... If you cant be bothered, kindly stop biatching about it ;)


How can you say what happiness really is when people do their best to sabotage each other? Even within this thread, people are truly wishing death upon the article writer, and even each other in this very thread. They hate and truly wish to see people dead over a disagreement. How can true happiness exist in a world where people wish death for others so easily?

The Fakers doth protest too much, methinks.

I cant believe all the anger in the responses to this guys point of view. Not just comments stating the opposing view that he might be wrong, but pleas for him to kill himself or questions about his sexuality. All this passion makes me wonder if you all see this guy as having some sort of a point, or maybe even realizing that the whole marriage / kids / career thing is as bullshiat as he says.

Xcott: Teen Wolf Blitzer: From a 2005 article he wrote:

If, like me, you go to work each morning and sit in front of a desk, you belong in the professional lineage of Sisyphus, the mythical figure damned to roll a massive boulder up a mountain, only to do it all over again when the rock rolls back down. After all, do you really make any substantial difference from your cubicle?

I wonder if this is our fault, for priming this generation to believe that they're going to change the world in amazing ways. Then they get a job, and cannot cope with the reality that almost all jobs are monotonous toil.

Which is, after all, the whole point of a job: you work a job to make money, and you make money because it's monotonous toil. If it wasn't, nobody would have to pay you to do it.

Do I really make a substantial difference by working in a cubicle? I guess not, but I don't make a substantial difference in this world by raking leaves or doing laundry. The problem isn't the meaningless job, the problem is having some millenial brain disease that makes you think chores are supposed to have some profound spiritual importance, and then makes you cry into a blog when you realize that they do not.


Well said!

Ed Willy: "Marriage originally evolved as a way for people to have sex without being stoned to death in the village square. "

Stopped reading right there (considered earlier giving his horrible writing). He's one of those "I'm smarter than you because I'm an atheist" who has an utter disregard for the the facts. He might be trying to be funny, but it's verbal masturbation from a failure in life.

Like Citizen Ted said, maybe work sucks, but in many ways we contribute to a greater whole. The dipshiat writer might change his tune if suddenly all the IT guys that support the Internet were to decide to be like him and quit working.


Hell, I AM an atheist and I had a hard time slogging through that bullshiat. I THINK we're being trolled. If not, meh, humanity isn't losing much if he wants to remove himself from it.

I'm saying that true happiness cannot exist while people still are hateful beings. There are people who will take advantage of any perceived weakness, and they will always find you. Being happy leads to exposing one's weak points, leading to a situation much like having a bleeding open wound while swimming near sharks. They will get you. They may take their time, but they'll drag you into hell one day or another.

the fact remains that society really only needs about 30% of the jobs out there in order to actully function. builders, plumbers, doctors, engineers, farmers, manufacturing (at least that that hasnt been shipped out to china), and some others. such is the effciency of modern industrial society. the rest is pretty much pointless paper pushing. so save your scorn and vitriol against the idle for when you actully have something nessecary for them to do in order to survive, and not just busywork for appearances sake.

2012-01-06 07:52:26 PM

fortean chicken: Aside from having a job I love, I'm basically in the same boat at the author of the article. I grew up wanting a wife, a house, kids. I grew up wanting to be normal and to have a house in a nice neighborhood, having weekend parties with neighbors and friends, the whole American Dream.

However, I grew older I began to realize I didn't know anyone who was living that life. None of the married couples I knew were happy. Everyone was cheating on everyone else, embezzling their life savings or gambling it away. Everyone was dependent on some kind of drug, either illegal or prescribed. Their kids started out well enough, but being undisciplined, quickly became brats. When they hit their teenage years most of them were already drug-users or in rehab before they were 18.

My own parents divorced, then re-married only to divorce again after their new spouses cheated on them and bankrupted them. My sister is still going from one abusive relationship to another, without any education, job or prospects. Nothing but 8 cats and a coke habit to call her own.

I stayed out of the game. I sat on the sidelines and watched all of their lives self-destruct. I'm the only one who has survived unscathed. I'll admit I'm a bit lonely at times, but I honestly believe I came out ahead. I don't see anything positive about having a family. I don't see anything positive from having a wife or kids. Everyone I know who has traded their solitude for family has lost everything.

The only winning move, is not to play.


There are honorable people out there. First thing is to become one. Be someone you'd admire. Its hard but possible.

Then find another honorable independent person, someone you admire for the same code you hold yourself to. Become friends and see what happens.

As well, learn to be happy on your own, and only date people who are likewise. Relationships are for sharing happiness (or misery), not creating it where it didn't exist before.

Need Help Soonish: FTFA: One of the main elements of sexual pleasure is novelty, and after the first year or so, that's been killed deader than an unmarried fornicator in Afghanistan

This guy knows even less about sex than he does about life.

Novelty sex is not necessarily good sex... if your having a certain kind of sex just to be able to say you had it, that does not mean it was all that good.

Im going to go with "His parents need to kick his worthless ass out."

Cause being an adult isn't about doing what you want... It's about manning the fark up and doing what you HAVE to.


It's about doing what you have to do in order to do what you want, actually.

that's why I work anyways.
 
2012-01-06 07:56:10 PM
... you know, it seems to me that the longer I live, the more insistent someone is about how other people view them, the more clueless they are.

I guess the point I am trying to make; is anyone else under the impression that any perceived problems this guy has interacting with or being judged by other adults has very little to do with the fact that he is unmarried, childless, and practically unemployed?

I mean, I know a shiat ton of adults that are unmarried, childless, unemployed, or any combination of the three, who seem to get on fine OR whenever I hear someone speak negatively about another adult, it usually has something to do with;

1) Poor personal hygiene
2) Seriously unclean home or car
3) Slutty
4) A drunk
5) Any combination of the above

I mean, I will occasionally hear people badmouth doods that live at home at 30, but come to think of it, it's usually the dood that lives at home at 30 talking trash about what a loser he is.

Ok, I know I promised to get to the point sooner, but, my point is, maybe you are a loser for other reasons than the enumerated list you came up with, chief. Like, maybe you're "that guy" that always has to top everyone else in a conversation. Maybe you're "that guy" that leaves a puddle of urine in front of the urinal. Maybe you're "that guy" that wants to correct everyone when they say something.

Look inward a little deeper than the fact that you don't have a home/wife/children.

okay, after reading what I thought was a manifesto instead of an article, I've come to a few observations about Franklin Schneider:

he doesn't like his parents (read some of his other articles)
he expects his parents to give him a downpayment for a new house
he doesn't like women
he doesn't like people smarter than him
he doesn't like the US govt
he doesn't like society
he doesn't like the concept of marriage
he doesn't like organized religion
he doesn't like work
he doesn't like any employer who fired him (shocking!)
he doesn't like children
he doesn't like the idea of having children
he doesn't like his ex-girlfriend
he doesn't like to pay for things
he thinks it's okay to take things that aren't his
he thinks the world owes him a living and all the things everyone else works for

I can't tell if he's trying to be an emo hipster, a comedian, or is a sociopath.

All I can say with certainity is this - no real familial relationships, no romantic relationships, and managed to lose ten jobs in under ten years...

call it a hunch, but the problem might be you.

Word.

The first part was great. People need to challenge all the pre-conceived notions of adulthood that we were programmed with as children. Life isn't a one size fits all type of thing, and just because one specific way of living is widely-accepted doesn't mean that a great many people won't be incredibly miserable if they follow that path. You shouldn't try to fit a circle peg into a square hole.

That said, being a drain on those around you is not the answer. Like the guy that wrote the article, I don't have a solution. I don't think there is a ready-made solution for people who don't fit into the mold. Maybe that's the whole point.

Plastic Trash Vortex: Oh look, the pale, disheveled slaves wasting two-thirds of their lives in boxes, toiling away for some rich asshole's benefit, are scrambling to defend their choices and give deeper meaning to their pathetic, self-destructive way of life. God forbid someone have the wherewithal to realize that society is just layers upon layers of bullshiat, and the whole system is probably doomed to collapse in the next decade or two anyway. Milk the system for everything you can now, because there isn't going to be anything left by the time you're ready to retire.

If young people had any sense they'd get guns and start robbing the boomers en masse. Seems like a fair exchange for robbing them of their future by farking everything up. And given how many of them are unemployed, I wouldn't be surprised if this is already starting to happen.

It's funny you should say that. When I read this article I thought of the Sandman comic where the medieval dude suddenly decides he doesn't have to die, and Morpheus hangs out with him once every century until the present day.

It's funny because I didn't realize it was the article that made me think of this. I thought it was just a random brain fart until you pointed this out.

I stand by my earlier assessment, though, that this dude isn't really looking for a way off the merry-go-round, but is instead inventing a philosophy to rationalize his not working.

Robo Beat: MrSid: Yeah they got a word for guys like that, it's called looser!

Note the bottle of lotion in easy reach, heh.

The lotion is within his reach, but his penis likely isn't.


First rule of the Peter Pan club: dont try to turn being a loser into some kind of philosophical statement, you goddam loser.

ApatheticMonkey: You know, I was having kind of a bad day. I'm waaay underemployed, and my job prospects in my chosen field are grim. I still live with my (very understanding) parents, don't have a girlfriend, and am generally down on myself and kind of depressed. However, I then skimmed the "article" and now I feel GREAT about myself beacuse "I'm not that dude". So, um... Thanks for that, self absorbed douche.... I guess.

You can have everything you want including the girl, it will just take time and effort.

Need Help Soonish: FTFA: One of the main elements of sexual pleasure is novelty, and after the first year or so, that's been killed deader than an unmarried fornicator in Afghanistan

This guy knows even less about sex than he does about life.

Novelty sex is not necessarily good sex... if your having a certain kind of sex just to be able to say you had it, that does not mean it was all that good.


I don't think he meant kinky fun. He meant the novelty of newness, that once you get accustomed to someone, the sex gets boring.

I imagine he's very bored with himself right about now.

Pichu0102: ... I've seen people who I am certain simply wanted to kill me just because they saw me....I've felt people who secretly regret having kids and secretly hate them because of it....they will always find you....They will get you. They may take their time, but they'll drag you into hell...


This being Fark, I have to assume that you're trolling. But, on the off chance that you genuinely suffer from this sort of thinking, I suggest that you would ultimately find it more rewarding to consult a mental health professional than to flaunt it on Fark.

I'm 31 as of 12/27, married, with two kids supporting two households (I'm working away from home right now because that's what is necessary to PAY THE BILLS. Not outrageous or crazy debt bills, but my mortgage payment, my car, my internet and cell bills. At the end of the day do I always go home satisfied? No. Do I whine and complain about why everyone who is the diametrically opposite of me (like this little self satisfied prick is) should be dragged through the streets then put to hard labor for two or three years? No. My job is to provide for my family, for my children, and since this retard feels that he doesn't need to breed (or at least not be successful at it, thank God) I feel that much better for my kids growing up because they won't have whatever little spawnlings this person and his ilk may bring into the world.

I'm in every respect an adult - this person isn't, and sitting there bemoaning the fact that I'm a horrible person for being so is silly and self-centered in the extreme. Piss off honky, go diddle your piddle until you parents decide they are tired of you mooching, then find out what a real like experience of unemployment will do to you.
