If the Internet is junior high, then Fark is the group of wanna-be hippies playing hacky-sack in the hallways and putting Grateful Dead stickers on their trapper keepers, without understanding what they represent.   They're eager to embrace new ideas, without fully comprehending them, but it angers their parents so they get on board quickly.  They quickly become a mindless clique of drones, eager to satisfy each other, without actually contributing anything new of their own.

I'm that guy (except I'm a girl) that puts articles up on Facebook that only 2 of the same people read because nobody else wants to read anything longer than a paragraph.  The last couple of weeks I have been doing an experiment in which I update my status with crap like, "I made shrimp fettucini alfredo" with a picture, and a picture of a dog.  That crap got all these farking "likes."  I have been wondering why I keep in this very shallow form of contact with these people.

The one piece of advice I gave all my kids as they went through highschool is not to make such a big deal out of it because the day you graduate, everything changes and none of that bullshiat matters anymore.

Kids are growing up in this social media environment.

The downside is that all the trolls, assholes and losers all have internet buddies now. Their behavior cannot be regulated in the usual fashion i.e. real life social sanctions or consequences. A bunch of assholes all reinforcing one anothers' bad behavior makes for some really persistent, haughty, and narcissistic trolls.

Maybe I'm hanging out in the shiatty parts of the internet and/or getting older and crankier, but I've never seen this caliber of anti-social behavior in the past. Fortunately Fark attracts an older crowd so it is relatively immune to this.

That's a nice notion, but sadly not true.

The cliquishness, bullying, abuse of position and power, cults of personality, and aggressive ostracism never actually leave for many people. They just diversify into wider venues.

I've met, or seen others suffer, far too many people who never outgrew that phase of their lives to believe in your optimistic viewpoint.

If anything, it has taught me to despise mankind.

With that in mind, my serenade to a species I'd annihilate if I could:

Run and hide again
I want to wait this time
Don't wonder why you can't clear this final sin
You know this story was over before it began
This is a battle
You're not gonna win
Welcome to the end

I've spent a lifetime planning out your destruction
You're never gonna witness another day
Alone in my mind, planning out your destruction, with no other function
You really don't know how long I've waited for your destruction
I'm telling you, you just can't get away
A whole lifetime planning out your destruction, with no other function
You really don't know

You better run

Ask me why again, nowhere to go this time
Revenge will be mine again
Say goodbye, my friend
Don't run away this time and die like a man
There is no escape from my plan
Welcome to the end

I've spent a lifetime planning out your destruction
You're never going to witness another day
Alone in my mind, planning out your destruction, with no other function
You really don't know how long I've waited for your destruction
I'm telling you, you just can't get away
A whole lifetime planning out your destruction, with no other function
You really don't know

There is no reprieve
You don't dare to look in my eyes
We'll turn their gaze away in time
You better run!

I've spent a lifetime planning out your destruction
You're never going to witness another day
Alone in my mind, planning out your destruction, with no other function
You really don't know how long I've waited for your destruction
I'm telling you, you just can't get away
A whole lifetime planning out your destruction, with no other function
You really don't know

Welcome to the end

Run and hide again
I want to wait this time
Don't wonder why you can't clear this final sin
You know the story was over before it farking began

Everyone thinks they're a nerd now, because they own a computer, or have an iPhone.

Most intellectuals don't mix with the borderline retarded masses online at all. Them being able to completely avoid them is one major difference between the net and school.

In Jr. High, they'd send me to the high school for math classes.

In high school, they'd send me across town to Portland State for math classes.

After the first year, I was allowed to punch cards for the computers.

In the Marines, they found out that I had been in the same room as a computer, so they made me file reports over the Arpanet.

I've been online since '83, peons. Suck it.

I was also a 19-year-old bikini model for several years on BBS.

idk -- on one side i agree. The whole "it gets better" anit-bullying campaing is such bull. Adults perpetuate the exact same behaviours they discourage in their kids. Gossip and vitriol are the adult tools of bullying. It all stays the same. People are terrible. No empathy. Maybe they have a sense of empathy, they just dont like the way it makes them feel when they use it...

But at the same time school does NOT matter. People can change. I'm different. I was bullied in school and i also bullied people in school. I changed. I hope i changed. I try every day to be different than i was. I try to be mindful -- to be wary of how i talk about people when i'm not there. I have been, for the last 10 years -- more than a third of my life -- trying to live kindly.

I know one other guy i was knew in highschool. He was a big nerdy dork. Like coke bottle glasses and not an ounce of muscle and his social skills weren't great... but after high school he just started looking so -- normal. His glasses changed, he went from scraggly teen stick boy to a tall regular (if thin) fellow, and his former social awkwardness somehow translated into a smart quiet and incredibly polite man. He got a hard time from ladies and the more athletic crowd. He's gotta be one of the nicest guys i know.

Some people never outgrow their petty ways. I think being aware that they wont change is important. I also think its important that we always believe that we ourselves CAN change.

I can be different. I can strive every day to be the person i want to. Other people can be garbage. But other people can be pure gold. I would say the sentiment should be "Don't get hung up on any one moment in your life."

Phineas: If the Internet is junior high, then Fark is the group of wanna-be hippies playing hacky-sack in the hallways and putting Grateful Dead stickers on their trapper keepers, without understanding what they represent.   They're eager to embrace new ideas, without fully comprehending them, but it angers their parents so they get on board quickly.  They quickly become a mindless clique of drones, eager to satisfy each other, without actually contributing anything new of their own.


And you're one of the non-conformist, alternative types who projects a negative attitude as a substitute for your true emotions. You represent everything with a facade of apathy because it hurts you to accept the fact that nobody really cares about your opinion in the first place. It's difficult to realize that despite all importance you place on yourself, you're actually completely insignificant.
