    see, more of you need to be nocturnal. I feel goofy rereading the same shit over and over.

    Either that, or we need more Europeans.

    Man, you don't want me to be nocturnal. You think I'm weird earlier in the day, you haven't seen anything. My world gets freaky-deaky after midnight.

    On that note, I'm going to bed.

    Tah kiddies.

    Bed at 3, waking up at 10am is pretty much my idea of the perfect, civilized schedule.

    Sadly the way it actually shakes out for me, many weeks I work all three different shifts here.

    EDIT: night, fireguy!

    I'd say something pithy about the party being right here but I can't carry it with a straight face.

    I have drunk a few times with no intention of going out, just killing time in chat. Those are not my proud moments, though.

    I dunno, drinking at home while socializing online is still probably better than drinking at home whilst staring at the wall morosely. Marginally.

    Yeah, somewhat better. More entertaining, at least.

    I have fewer compunctions about getting my buzz on than I used to. Partially because I realized that my parents drink wine and liqueur every night with dinner, and it leaves them a little happier.

    I do have trouble stopping once I get going, though.

    Despite my sydneyishness timezone, I go to bed by 10-11pm every night. The few times I am up outside of these hours are because I can't sleep at all so give up because its so boring staring at the goddam ceiling for hours.

    I don't agree that everyone around you wants you to fail and that you can achieve anything you put your mind to, or that you should even try.

    Me neither. I may tell myself that in order to tap into the stubborn-motivation thing, but I don't genuinely believe it, no.

    You can achieve anything within the natural realm of possibility.

    Considering this, why not try?

    The male in that couple would have to be an utter punce to allow their wife to name their child renee.

    That child will have to live with that name

    That's good, because that's a pretty pathological thing to believe.

    I don't think you can achieve anything, and I don't think you should try. Everyone has limits, and attainable goals are better than the fetishization of unrealistic success. This is especially true of the sorts of success that tend to get idolized--wealth and prestige, rather than quieter goals like contentment and kindness. Furthermore, I hate people who blame the unfortunate for their misfortune, as if they all deserve whatever comes to them.

    ege, this philosophy is great if what you want to do is charm women or make a lot of money in business - I will never gainsay the power of confidence, optimism, a firm handshake and a fake-ass grin. But there really are lots of endeavours in life where energy and enthusiasm aren't going to be adequate substitutes for innate talent or luck.

    Unrealistic? Hardly. The world is full of people who start with nothing and end up with everything. People who got fucked in the ass by circumstance a hundred times but succeeded because they didn't give up. If they could do it, why can't you? I mean, besides the fact that you don't think you can, or that you don't think you should even try.
    Furthermore, I hate people who blame the unfortunate for their misfortune, as if they all deserve whatever comes to them.

    I think pointing out that most of them can get out of their unfortunate situation if they tried is very, very different from blaming them for it.

    Look, things like innate talent or luck... you can make up for their lacking by putting in extra effort. And the funny thing about luck is, it's a numbers game: the more you try, the more you increase your chances of "getting lucky".

    I'm not denying that other people can get ahead of you with their innate talents or by getting lucky. But situations like that are only temporary setbacks.

    And see, I'm already finding you unctuous and grating. It's a little hard to whip up a rational discussion on this topic, since, as I said earlier, we view everything differently.

    Mine too. Also: I worked in a used bookstore for four years. We had a ceiling high stack of this shit - decades' worth of manuals on positive thinking and glad-handing, from the nineteen-twenties through the 00s, all promising the world and offering the same elementary-level advice ("break difficult problems into steps! write down your goals!") combined with whatever pop psychology was in vogue at the moment - and the stack never decreased in size. It was constantly being added to by run-down looking dudes in their forties and fifties who were selling their get-rich-quick books for pocket money. It made me a bit cynical.
