    You also give pastries to monsters in German folklore, it's not only monsters passing them out

    A surprising amount of German culture is pastry-based
    Or maybe that isn't so surprising

    Maybe some people here remember the Perchten, the costumed characters often looking like devils

    In an early form of the Perchten tradition, they would visit isolated houses and ask for doughnuts

    And they would claim some unspecified right of retaliation if they shouldn't receive any doughnuts

    We mostly know about this because authorities were very concerned about this tradition - these masked and costumed people would often carry real weapons as part of their costume

    I think some of the protocols I looked at were from the 17th century

    Imagine living on an isolated homestead and then suddenly a band of people dressed like devils, carrying weapons, come out of the mist, clamoring for doughnuts

    This was some gothic shit

    At some times there were fears that people would use this tradition to commit political murders or start a rebellion

    But as far as I know, there's no record of any murder which was committed, however people were tortured because they were assumed to have been somehow connected to it

    I have a feeling a modern doughnut rebellion would entail someone sticking their dick through a ring doughnut at some point

    I just keep thinking people who are way smarter than me are intimidating.

  • builderr0rbuilderr0r Registered User regular
    Oh, same. :P But I still think you should try messaging anyone who interests you. If they reply, they might start to appear less intimidating the more you talk to them.

    This is a toxic line of thinking.

    There's this idea among a lot of straight men that they have to be smarter than their partner which is hella misogynistic when you think about it.

    Maybe you're looking for dudes instead/as well but still, it is not a good thing to think.

    What? I don't think I have to be smarter?

    I just feel like I'm a big dummy and because of that more educated ladies would find me boring.

    Someone being interesting has nothing to do with their education, some of the dullest and most annoying people I've met are highly educated!

    At least if you're starting out talking online there's less pressure. Can't think of a response? You can take a moment to collect your thoughts without creating awkward silence because there isn't that same expectation of real-time interaction.

    I lose about as much anxiety as I gain with online chat, just because online chat is terrible at conveying tone.

    Posted this in the youtube thread and realized, it really fits here also, because, well, thread title asked.

    onions will be cut in this post, fair warning.

    Story behind it
    Almost 3 decades ago, they were a couple, due to circumstance, it had to end, their last meeting was to embrace in the center of the great wall , and leave in opposite directions

    Years later she was doing an art show, where strangers could come sit across from her, and they just stare in silence at each other for a minute.

    He arrives without warning, and it's the first time they've seen each other since, at 1:20
