    Wait I forgot, I also tend to an hour or so later after posting start a post with "Wait I forgot," and then basically ramble some more on kinda the same topic, but just a slightly bit skewed to whatever I've spent thinking about for the last hour.

    For instance here it'd be like, that first post was kinda all punchy punchy hit hit ouch things I don't necessarily like about myself. So this second one would be just slightly skewed. So maybe instead of sounding paranoid and socially awkward, I instead lean into the bit and make the whole post more about explaining the joke instead of actually making it. So like, I don't actually post much in SE++ besides in political threads and sometimes the TV thread, so I guess I'll have to post as if this is a political TV thread. Which the main political shows I've seen are the West Wing and House of Cards, so I really don't want to kick off a discussion on those for obvious reasons (cause they're both bad), so regular politics it is.

    So how bout that Biden and his flippant attitude when asked about his administration's continued support of Israel after these latest inhuman attacks?

    Edit: And of course I'd get an awkward TOTP where I'm not quoting anyone, so being somewhat awkward about my bold declaration of how I must post in this thread I have to edit in a comment about the TOTP. It's a given.

    For an actual post, here's an overly-edited piece that has been reworded over and over to be as unremarkable as it can probably get, because I'm often a coward about putting an actual opinion out there. Most likely you'll see me actually emote only when I've been reading a politics thread long enough to see something completely awful. Or if someone is the least bit critical of my opinion, and I decide to post a long-ass, absurdly contrite apology and retraction of everything I've ever said; because again, coward. Also, I use semicolons; I read about them a few years ago and think I know how to use them.
    About the most interesting thing you'll see from me is a line divider, to make my posts a little less messy.
    But sometimes I use them too often and it looks weird.
    It's hard to make a proper parody of my posting style. Both because of the base-of-the-lighthouse thing, and because I really don't feel like I have a proper voice. I feel like I'm often just nodding along with other posts, making jokes because I think that's what a personality is, or lurking. At the risk of getting too self-indulgent, I've been here for a good number of years, and I still don't really think I've conducted myself as a friend to anyone, you know?

    Listen, when I look at Capitalism on Wikipedia, Americans are only 4 of 17 people highlighted as principal contributors. Also who decided on these 17 people and why is Ayn Rand on this list.

    I believe I can answer this. Ayn Rand is a form of mold. Leave any document in a dark place long enough and you’ll find Randian nonsense stuck to it.

    Hi I'm Death of Rats and I take way too much shit personally. I like to complain about my life, hint at deeper issues I have that I'm not quite ready to confront in my life, and then get overly worked up about things that honestly don't matter.

    I've always fashioned myself as an artist, but the truth of the matter is I've never put in the work to be an artist. I'm also pretty good at quoting posts, restating what the other poster said, and not honestly adding anything myself. Almost as if I don't know what the like and awesome buttons are for.

    I like to consider myself intelligent, but once again I never have put in the work to actually nurture any potential that is there. So I can come off as well spoken, but most of my knowledge (on a wide variety of subjects) is fairly just surface. In fact, my whole deal seems to be kinda just "sitting around feeling sorry for myself while also feeling really hyped on where I 'should' be in life and cheated that I'm not there while also never actually putting in the work to get there", which is ok for a while. Because I'm a fairly nice person, and I can be funny. But be around me too long and oh wow you'll get tired of hearing of all these things I'm going to do... you know... someday.
    So it took me 30+ years to realize that having all the potential in the world means nothing if you don't have the circumstances to manifest it. It's not easy for me to accept it, but my life was absolutely never going to play out how I thought it should or wished it could almost entirely due to circumstances beyond my control. And when I do accept that, which is a daily effort, it means I can lay off beating myself up for not being what I wanted and devote some of that energy to being who I am

    So sure, maybe you're right and you didn't or haven't put in the work to realize your potential. But maybe also there have been roadblocks and obstacles that instead meant you did what you could with what you had. It's not nice and it's not fair, but being down on yourself for who you are isn't going to make that hurt less. Use that energy for something else. Even if it's 'only' to feel a bit more comfortable in your own skin

    Pls agree/awesome I'm addicted to the rush of other people confirming my existence

    So in this alternate universe, we all pledge fidelities to mega corporations like in Shadowrun, and you went with Pantone eh.

    I think I'd be a Nestlé person, despite knowing they're patently evil, I have a thirst and I have to drink.

    My posting style is to respond to something promptly, only to find out 4 other people gave the same answer in the time it took to write the post.

    I'm half expecting that several people posted this exact thing just a millisecond before this.

    I just, basically use filler words and empty modifiers, like 'like', basically all the time.
    Edit: also edit my posts multiple times in a row to correct auto correct typos.
    Also begin multiple sentences in a row with also.
