douchebag/hater: Interesting the amount of people biatching about Fark.Funny, you complain about the site in the site's own comment section.If Fark sucks so much WHY are you still here?As for the article: the writer is right on the money and the people here who are upset about must feel it applies to them on a personal level.
grinding_journalist: I mentioned upthread that I have the wife, the house, the picket fence, and a kid on the way. These things would suggest that I've matured into a responsible adult, not someone who gets hammered and rides around in a doorless, topless Jeep Wrangler shooting bottle rockets and roman candles at things on the sidewalk. Not someone who can spend hours playing video games or watching football and not feel guilty about being unproductive. Not someone who has spent the past few months (and many months to come) painting a veritable army of plastic and pewter men that are 1.5 inches tall. Not someone who refuses to quit smoking pot because it's illegal, regardless of the fact that it's superior to any other psych med out there. Not someone who will spend more time setting a fantasy football lineup and agonizing over a trade than getting real work done in the office that day. Not someone who refuses to throw away a 15 year old t-shirt that's more holes than cloth due to sentimental value. Not someone who leaves his pregnant wife at home to go play a Star Trek CCG with his friends who live a couple blocks away. Not someone who thinks doughnuts, two beers, a sack of cheddar Chex mix and a Caramello is an acceptable substitute for dinner. Not someone desperately clinging to the destructive ways of their youth because they're terrified of the future, the unknown, and themselves.
HellRaisingHoosier: I had most issue with #4 ...Eventually, though, you start to mature and realize that every second you spend living like that is a second you haven't spent building your career or securing your retirement or building a legacy. And the longer you put it off, the more of a head start you give your competition for the perfect job or the perfect spouse. You start realizing that all of your friends bought their first house at age 30, while you're counting wrinkled wads of singles from the strip club the night before to pay your rent.It's fine if this is a glimpse of your perfect life, but it's not mine. I hate when I'm judged on what other people want. I certainly don't want a stepford-wife, little house in the suburbs (by 30 no less), kids, and some 9 - 5 job to work at for the rest of my life.
GarbageDay: Has to be John Cheese*clicks*Yep.The guy acts like he's the one-stop encyclopedia for all of life's valuable information. You write on a comedy website for Christ's sake.
