    "Resistance spaceships disappeared in a puff of dust as the enemy platoon rained lasers upon them" = orgy

    Like the gay sex scene in Gatsby.

    Hey man

    Just because I hang out with other dudes in my underwear, looking at photographs or whatever

    i was hangin out with my friend yest who i hadn't seen in a while cuz her work cray

    she is a teacher so she wakes up mad early

    i'm like real good friends with her and her roommate, but they have a 3rd roommate who is this guy who is like, i mean, he's an okay guy, bit weird but

    well i guess he'd been kinda dating one of my friend's close friends, but uh they broke up for her wanting a more real relationship and him not, and uh i guess he slept with a person or two, including some lady when he was in hawaii

    so, that's awk for one

    but i guess he unexpectedly now brought that girl from hawaii to stay for a bit without asking other roommates

    and their walls are thin / sound carries

    and my friend has to sleep early and wake up early

    so

    that whole situation sounds awkward and unpleasant

    my friend said she got woken up today at 2am and yelled "are you fucking kidding me" and then things went silent

    can we say HEY KIDDO START WITH COMEDIES (Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams) and with dark but relatively straightforward fantasy (Neil Gaiman!)

    no, I don't think that was it. in fact iirc that particular point flew right past me when reading - wikipedia says it was A Wizard of Earthsea, I guess Earthsea is a series. some other review pointed it out to me, a while later, this was years ago

    I think it was the magic system that I found repellent - I guess the author's excessive sense of enjoyment that a completely arbitrary magical system turns out to be working exactly the way she likes (WHAT A SURPRISE!) coming through the text

    As opposed to how magic actually works?

    If you want to understand humanity's great capacity for complexity you must put aside your standards of morality for the real world and explore great fiction

    Or you can just read Jane Austen which I love completely sincerely and no one dare say a fucking word against Pride and Prejudice which is an exploration of a very different kind of human complexity and depravity

    cB, disregard vidja games and literature

    Acquire sports

    Until the day comes when they shut down the NFL because all of the players' brains are being destroyed

    It's a cash cow

    And also enjoyable to watch!

    actually i am heartily regretful that I was disdainful and scared of sports (mostly because gym class is a nightmarish joke) and was afraid to exercise for the first 20 years of my life, because now I enjoy it and wish I had built up a base when i was a teenager and it would have been much easier to build up said base
    i think the thing is not finding a sport i enjoyed for a while

    i still don't think i would enjoy team sports, because i didn't and i doubt i ever really will, they were really a drag (though i was forced to play them for forever, like i played soccer from 4th grade thru 8th at school - and also as a yout, and then basketball in middle school, and then in HS - i went to private school - they also made us do physical things, but i did lol 3rds squash and "physical fitness" to avoid doing real sports)

    i do wish i'd gotten into lifting earlier though - especially in HS, but even earlier in college tho i started in college, because now it is my favorite thing, i fucking love it

    and i found that i loved jiu jitsu when i started senior year of HS, when i had a chance to do an independent elective sport not at school - (which made me regret not doing wrestling in HS)

    and i have always loved snowboarding though my opportunities to do that have varied and it's hard to go enough to get good


    so what i think is important is - even if you do not like sports you should find something physical that you really enjoy and get into because there are all kinds of things
    if not team sports, you can get into hiking, or running, or lifting, or kayaking or alpine sports or rock climbing or martial arts or yadda yadda yadda, you just gotta find the thing you like
    i think this is important

    shaz you are a wizened sage fyi
