Trolling is like, saying stuff intending to kick up a fuss.

FuzzyChickens, I would like to make a request that you stop trolling with everybody. I find your Sarcasam very distasteful. I deal with Sacrasim enough in my own personal life. I don't need to deal with it whenever I visit this Site. You take us all for a bunch of fools. Let me tell you. We aren't fools. We are very bright people and we know when somebody is taking advantage of us. I just want you to know that I'm not afraid to stand up to anybody who takes advantage of the people who truly rely on Wrong Planet.

I think I am missing something here. I don't see it with Fuzzychickens. Of course, as I said before, I have a hard time seeing anything humorous as wrong unless it is plainly in poor taste or directed at a specific person.

Society confuses me sometimes. There are so many unwritten rules that you have to follow to mesh with the rest of Society. I have a hard enough time understanding people. If you're not like the Society People, you're written off as being Sub-human. I see Society as a bunch of young people cut out by the same Cookie Cutter. One Cookie Cutter for the Females, and one for the Males. I feel that Modern Society leaves a lot to be desired. I wouldn't mind going back to the 1960s or even Victorian London. At least people used proper grammar back in the 19th Century.

society is full of itself. They are too caught up with the latest thing that does not concern them to allow us the chance to communicate with them.

If you ask me, it's all pop culture's fault. Think about what people care about nowadays. Football, baseball, basketball, hockey, golf, et cetera, not to mention Hollywood in general. Why exactly are sports such a big deal, anyway? After all, they're nothing more than a bunch of people in uniforms trying to control an inanimate piece of leather/rubber/latex/etc., with no inherent purpose. I find it insulting to my intelligence that I'm expected to find this entertaining in any way. As for Hollywood, and the press in general, all they do is supply people with idiotic information of no value that doesn't affect anyone, and yet oddly enough people care more about this information than something that would actually affect them, such as the fact that they're wasting their time collecting information about people who don't have anything to offer society except entertainment. If a single mediocre actor is able to distract you from the entire movie, then you obviously don't understand why people go to movies. I don't know why NTs go to movies, but I go to experience a story in visual format. Apparently other people go to movies in order to judge the actors' worth.

You can be an aspie without having the super-abilites from it. Like, I was diagnosed with HFA but I am not genius, it just helps me in school a little bit so I can study less....sometimes.

In my life, the one thing that I've learned most thoroughly about people is that most of them are unfathomable idiots. People have constructed this elaborate code of social BS that they follow without having the slightest clue why, and they ostracise or feel offended by those who defy it. Why does the clerk at Walgreens thank me for buying milk there? Have I done her some personal favor that I'm unaware of? Why am I expected to apologize for things that I do completely by accident? Why does no one realize that life would be so much less stressful if we didn't have to put up with this crap?


That's fun. I find that people are dumb, and self-centered, but most of them have good in them. That I agree with about the social code. Haha, I say thanks so much just because I know I am supposed to and I am not sure what else to say. I honestly don't know the times when I truly am supposed to say thanks and when I am not, so I just try to cover all my bases. The accident thing, grrr, I hate that too. I just say sorry and get it over with.

Guys... you don't need to have a neurological disorder to be socially inept. Our culture is designed to make life difficult for people who think logically and practically. Nothing makes this more clear than Seven of Nine on Star Trek: Voyager, whose ruthlessly pragmatic approach to life was the source of much amusement when she tried to interact with the rest of the ship's stupid crew (except, of course, Tuvok). So what's the solution? Should people like us just keep BSing our way through life in an attempt to "fit in"? No. We should take a more... aggressive approach. Instead of altering our behavior to fit popular culture, we should attempt to alter popular culture to fit our behavior.


What about girls? :wink: What? No way... that's gonna happen. :roll:

Don't scoff. It's much more possible than you think. I'm sure that all of the Borg wannabes in the world, pooling our talents, could concoct a veritable onslaught of books, TV shows, and movies that could change the way people act. Humans, especially the young ones, really are much more imitative than even we realize. This plan would take at least 20 years to get rolling, but anyone exposed to the works at a young enough age would know the truth and be unable to turn back. This could also be used for other purposes (making geekiness "cool", abolishing fabricated emotions, etc.), but probably with less success. At the very least, people would be more readily accepting of those who speak bluntly and only when they have something important to say.


I didn't, I rolled my eyes....totally different. That is true about young humans.

Quote:
Note: When I say "fabricated emotions", I refer to emotional responses that we learn by imitation rather than direct experience. For example, no human has ever been attacked by a wolf, yet some people are afraid of wolves because popular culture teaches them to be.


Wo, I think gayness is a fabricated emotion. If learning by seeing, and seeing the tv is what you are referring to...or books, or etc....then a lot of things could be "unlearned" if we were to stop all mass-media....but i'm sure that's gonna happen soon. :roll: :roll:

the clerck at walgreens thanks you for buying milk because you are the consumer...without consumers walgreens would be out of buisness as well as all retail buisnesses...your milk purchase, in a small way, helps keep her employed. customer service is important and most customers like to feel apriecated for the money they part with and if a store treats them like just a number on the cash register, then customers will go elsewhere which effects that particular store's quotas. If she store's quotas are bad enough then they will fire a bunch of people. So she is thanking you for keeping her employed.

just because you did something by accident, you should still appologize. Why? just because you did not mean to do it, doesnt remove you from the responcibilty of your actions. You still negitivly impacted someone else to some degree or another and you still have to own up to it. If you wrecked someone elses car by accident and it was your fault, you are still responcible for making things right again. That may be that person's only form of transportation...you would have greatly impacted them regardless of the fact you did not mean to.

Manners are important because even though they are superfical for the most part, they keep peace by recognizing the needs of others to be considered. By needs, I mean that people have need to feel like they matter...it is part of our social programing and manners recognize that the other person matters, Even if they dont matter on a personal level, they should matter as a fellow human being because without respect for each other's humanity, you have a dangerous situation. People are crazy and manners tame down that craziness to a dull roar. It is only nessisary to keep the peace.
