I have tried to fit into various subcultures, and it was a strained attempt each time. For a while, it seemed okay, but then I realized it seemed
I think the issue is with pleasantries. The usual BS remarks people exchange that amount to nothing. Example:
"Hi, how are you?" (expects to hear "good")
"Good, and you?" (expects to hear "good")
Who the frick bothers to ask someone how they're doing if you expect to hear the usual crap anyway? I mean, cut it out. If you don't really intend to
expect a real answer, what the hell are you asking for? I sometimes surprise people with exactly how things are going if they are going badly. It's
like they don't even know what to say! So funny. "Well, you asked." is what I tell myself. I don't go into awful detail, but they seem tense if all
you say it "I'm okay." Like, "Oh, only OK? What's wrong?" ...exactly! If you can't look around you and see what's wrong, you're dense as hell! It's
like society is filled with a bunch of fake barbie and ken dolls, all plastic and smiling all the time on the outside.
If I can't have a real conversation with someone, forget it. I have no interest in hearing petty pleasantries from anyone. Society needs to get real,
get in touch with everything going on (even the ugly), and let's start to progress instead of get lost more and more in fantasy.
That is my take on the social aspect of it. Such a waste to bother talking to most people. They are incredibly predictable. It's boring. I would
rather be doing thought experiments with myself.
I am literally about to run around my house right now!
THIS IS EXACTLY HOW I AM. This is crazy.
As I was reading the OP, this is exactly what I was thinking. I've been thinking
like this since forever. People don't get it though. They call you "anti-social"
or even take it to a level where they call you weird because you aren't a social
zombie like everybody else. Its sickening.
i have to throw my opinion inn here , people make this gesture of introduction because it is polite , and respectful , and depending on what kind of
person you are it could lead to a healthy positive conversation , it is a instinctual way of approaching and unknown subject , would it seem fit to
walk up and say "hey! how bad are you ? " you having a bad day !?"
why bother putting much thought into it ? , the statement alone tells me that the poster and the ones who agree choose to be anti social , and
negative , it it also shows that you care about what people think , so much so that you have put this much thought into the process of introduction .
IMHO i would rather deal with a "Fake" positive person , then someone who walks through life being negative
the world will pass you right up if you so choose to live that kind of life ,
thats all for now
