Signs you might suck at life:

1.)  You are 30 and have roommates
2.)  You are 30 and still pass out on the couch with your shoes on after a night of drinking
3.)  You hang out with people who are either functionally retarded or liars (I swear, I tried it on my arm and it comes right off, so I drew a dick on his face....)

In any case - if you can easily remove the drawing - then it's a 'haha' funny prank.  The victim will go around and not know they have a dick on their face for a while.  haha, funny.  But once it's permanent or semi-permanent (after all, a tattoo of a dick on your face isn't permanent - it can be removed and, worst case, it only lasts about 60-70 years) it can be quite serious.  Most everyone with a job cannot go to work with a dick on their face.  Most people can't call up their boss and say, 'I need 3 weeks off work because I have a dick on my face that is slowly fadding'

Personally, I think everything that happened in the story is fair game.  House rule is if you fall asleep with shoes on, you get drawn on.  House rules should also include anyone doing the drawing gets the crap beat out of them.  Ironically, these were the house rules we followed when I was in college.  Depending on the marker - a black eye/broken nose will look normal in about the same time it takes for the drawing to fade completely.

// I bet the dude with the broken nose never draws another dick on a passed out drunk guy again.

clowncar on fire: Fark_Guy_Rob: Creoena: Fark_Guy_Rob: Signs you might suck at life:

1.)  You are 30 and have roommates

[img.4plebs.org image 250x272]
/Maybe you own a home and rent a room for extra income
//Or you were laid off
///Or went though a nasty divorce
////I doubt any apply to these idiots but that's one of the most idiotic statements I've read on fark all morning

I said *might* suck at life.  Having roommates at 30 doesn't mean someone necessarily sucks at life, but it certainly would be correlated with sucking at life.  If being laid off results in a financial need for roommates, I would argue there is almost certainly some bad life choices at play.  Getting laid off....sure, that can happen....but positioning yourself in such a way that you can't survive a lay off without roommates is *suggestive* of bad life planning.

A nasty divorce?  I'd say that strongly suggests someone sucks at life.  People don't just get married, they go out of their way to get married.  It's a choice, one that doesn't even have to be made.  Selecting someone that is going to do everything they can to make your life a living hell would also suggest some bad choices being made.

Owning a home and renting a room out?  Maybe.  But then you would have a roommate.  Singular.  I was speaking about *roommates*.  Plural.

Now sure, there might be some guy out there with a great job and a great life who said to himself, 'I know - I'll buy a house, and then get some roommates who will pay me to live there.  Even though I have a job and reliable income and savings, I can save lots of money by having several roommates'.  That guy might be awesome at life.

That's why I said 'signs' and 'might'.

No single 'sign' guarantees that someone sucks at life.  But enough of them and I can be confident in saying they almost certainly do suck at life.

Actually- having roommates at 30 might make you a farking genius.  It worked when I was in my twenties while I was establishing my finances.  Immigrants do it all th ...


I think 'farking genius' is a bit much - but sure, it's a well known, obvious way, to reduce living expenses.

But so is living in a car.

And while you might be a 'farking genius' by living in your car, and you might be investing that money into some business that will some day be worth a billion dollars......you might also just be some guy who is living in a car.  Most people living in their cars aren't geniuses.  They are people who probably had some combination of unfortunate luck and bad life skills.  Roommates are like that, but to a lessor degree.  The higher the cost of living is, the more financial sense it makes to have roommates and the more common it is.

I'm not saying people who live in their cars are bad people or that they necessarily suck at life.  Quite a few successful/rich/famous people have slept in their cars at one point or another.  But if someone is living in their car, most of the time, it's not a sign of sound financial planning.  Roommates are kind of like that, just a much less extreme version.

Pretty sure going through a nasty divorce is a sign you suck at life

So, the soldier who gets deployed to Afghanistan, Iraq, etc and comes back to find his wife divorcing him because he "wasn't around enough" sucks at life?

I was going to say the guy that puts in the extra hours at work or gets tagged for "on-call" on his weekends and is never there, or the spouse that has that job that requires they be on the road all the time.  They definitely suck at life.  Let's toss in psychiatric issues, abuse, etc.  Definitely life's losers.


You can come up with scenarios where someone is 30, living with roommates, and not one of life's losers.  Nobody is arguing against that.

Think of it like a medical diagnosis.  People who have X *usually* show certain symptoms.  Sometimes people with X don't show the common symptoms and sometimes people without X have the same symptoms.

Someone can 'fail at life' and not have roommates at 30.
Someone can have roommates at 30 and not 'fail at life'.

But I will bet every single penny I have; if you performed a detailed analysis on every American who is 30 and has (nonromanticly involved) roommates - the MAJORITY will suck pretty hard at life.  For every edge-case long hour-working/on-the-road person who has roommates and an amazing life - you'll find five people who make really poor decisions.  Like drawing dicks and getting into fist fights....

It means they took a lifelong decision lightly.

Yes, because everyone in the history of the universe shows their true colors when NOT actually in a divorce situation.  Do you even have any concept of what marriage is?  The emotions involved in falling in love, and having it end poorly?  Do you actually think people will be able to completely figure out "OK what is this person going to do if we get divorced" before proposing, and EVER get it 100% correct?  People are not robots.

People are missing the point.  Having roommates at 30 doesn't guarantee someone 'fails at life'.  But it *suggests* they might.   You can come up with edge-cases as counter-examples; but it doesn't change my original point.

Maybe the guy is a famous researcher who is also rich and spends his free time travelling the world performing medical work (he's also a doctor) in 3rd world countries out of the good of his heart....and since he's usually at his super-model wife's house or travelling the world, he let two deserving individuals come and live at his place with him.  He could be the most successful guy in the world and have roommates at 30.

That wouldn't really affect my claim that *generally* having roommates at 30 is an indication of poor life choices.

// 30+
// Has roomates


You have a penis drawn on your face, don't you.

I think the response would've been different if he wasn't drunk and tired. Back in the day someone shaved my arm pits and legs when I passed out. Rage was flowing through my hairless body when I woke up, but after my hangover went away, I felt relaxed, soft and smooth. csb

marksman: I thought it was international law that passing out with your shoes on warrants others to draw on you.


It is.
It's also international law that drawing on someone may result in an ass beating.

As a result of the assault, the victim suffered a broken nose, an eye that was swollen shut and other facial injuries, according to police and prosecutors.

"But you should see the other guy!"
