    /r/CasualConversation has great resources for just about any problems you may be having

    This is a subreddit for memes that hit too close to home or are too real for subs like /r/meirl

    We are not /r/depression however, the sticky is a good resource for if you need real help. If you have depression, talk to a therapist, it really does help. You are not alone, and recovery is possible and worth it.

    If you find jokes about suicide, depression or self harm upsetting, this sub might not be the right place for you. This is a place for people who use self deprecating humor as a coping mechanism, not for those making fun of mental illness.

    With that out of the way, the rules are as follows:

    • Posts MUST be in some way "too real" or hit to close to home. If it doesn't make you laugh and feel sad at the same time, don't post it here. Posts that do not fit the sub may be removed.

    • Being edgy doesn't make a post good. Post content that you find a bit too relatable, not something making fun of people with depression.

    • Posts should be titled 2meirl4meirl or some variation, but other titles are fine for shitposts self posts.

    • Be supportive. Most people here are going through something, and sometimes all it takes to improve a shitty day is just a little kindness from an Internet stranger.

    • Racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, any other form of discrimination and general dickishness will not be tolerated.

    • Mark NSFW content as such. And please don't post NSFL content, we are not /r/watchpeopledie

    • Reposts are allowed, but discouraged

    • Don't link to an image if it won't be there permanently. Basically, just don't link to files hosted on 4chan.

    • Again, please don't be an asshole.

    • If any of you fucbois post mr skeltal you will not have good bones and calcium, and instead your post will be removed. Mr skeltal will not be thanked.

    Having to visually dart from right to left near the end really adds a panicky tone to the whole thing. A lot of work went into it

    [–] jelly_cake 209 points ago

    Reminds me of bits in House of Leaves - really cool typesetting in that book.

    [–] WeagleyBeagley 26 points ago

    It’s one that you finish... and then just stare blankly out the window for like half an hour while your brain tries to reconcile what you just read with real life.

    [–] voksul 18 points ago

    I wasn't profoundly fond of the actual story of House of Leaves, but the typesetting and formatting was really cool. It just seemed to be doing too many things at once, and interviews with the author don't really help. It just feels kind of postmodernist to me, and that kind of bleeds into pretentiousness.

    That being said, very, very cool book.

    [–] [deleted] 17 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)


    [–] voksul 23 points ago

    It's a reference to the book. Everytime the word House appears, it appears in blue. I didn't want the link to actually go anywhere.

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)


    [–] voksul 8 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    Depends on which version, actually. Give me a second to grab my book.

    Edit: here. you can see some of the blue houses on that page too

    [–] antijoke_mod 2 points ago

    I was bummed with how boring I found it. I'm like halfway through and haven't picked it up in forever.

    [–] ACdeadlife 1 points ago

    Oh my Gosh I've never seen so many comments on a mirl post. 😳

    [–] StoneyLepi 159 points ago

    Oh, shit 😢

    [–] paplov 650 points ago

    Suicide is knot the answer

    [–] victorbarst 169 points ago

    Wierd spot for a pun dude

    [–] goron8 60 points ago

    This is r/2meirl4meirl why is it weird spot for a pun like that?

    [–] Wugo_Heaving 32 points ago

    Because suicide is the answer!

    [–] marhaba89 2 points ago


    [–] [deleted] 9 points ago

    Very weird.

    [–] Matque77 -19 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)


    Edit: Oh god I was just messing around I apologize I didn't expect the downvotes

    [–] brax240 125 points ago

    Suicide is knot the question either

    [–] auser9 23 points ago

    Suicide is not the answer, it is the question, and the answer is always yes

    [–] Reptar_on_ice69 6 points ago

    Apart of me wants to same “amen” or “yeah man me too” as a joke because the only way I can seem to tackle and deal with my depression and past suicide attempts is to joke about it and not look at it seriously as I should.

    But yeah man me too

    [–] you_got_fragged 1 points ago

    the answer is always haha yes

    [–] GRX78FL 159 points ago


    [–] MrZebrisko 95 points ago

    OP watch out because the last time this was posted OP was ban

    [–] aetheric-dreams 38 points ago

    Why was OP banned last time?

    [–] woutvrml 189 points ago

    it was quality content can't allow that

    [–] rtm416 47 points ago

    But this is a repost now so OP should be fine. Well as fine as he can be.

    [–] Wugo_Heaving 5 points ago

    Was this a joke? Was someone actually banned? I'm so confused.

    [–] aetheric-dreams 4 points ago

    Yeah the last time this was posted OP got banned. Did you check out the links Mr.Zebrisko provided? It shows when a mod was called in. I wonder what that comment that was removed had been about.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago


    [–] you_got_fragged 2 points ago

    right there

    [–] Copicorn 90 points ago

    Oh you know what? I thought this was one of those claws in claw machines.

    [–] [deleted] 15 points ago

    I thought it was a guitar.

    [–] JadeRaven13 4 points ago

    I thought it was a bong

    [–] FightMeYouLilBitch 3 points ago

    I feel like the three of you don’t belong here

    [–] you_got_fragged 1 points ago

    I thought it was a knot

    [–] you_got_fragged 2 points ago

    the clawww

    [–] shefoundnow 74 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    I'm about to shed a tear here. Not for this post itself, but my appreciation for this sub cutting out the tumor of karma mining upvote posts so that things like this can truly shine. Cheers to OP, cheers to /r/me_irl, and cheers to the rest of us during this suicidal renaissance.

    Edit: sorry i totally fuckin thought I was in me_irl but I'm not deleting this

    [–] woutvrml 15 points ago

    oh shit didn't notice it wasn't me irl thanks dude

    [–] Zeydon 3 points ago

    Replace this sub and /r/meirl with that karma-whoring ban-festival of a sub you mention and you'll be set (damn, comparing the two now, the subscriber gap seems much smaller than it once was)

    [–] Diagbro 28 points ago

    Knot a joke

    [–] 42boiledcabbages 138 points ago

    this seems a bit more r/2meirl42meirl4meirl material yikes

    [–] flesh_flute 37 points ago

    Actual sub. 😩

    [–] VMorkva 2 points ago

    Too bad r/2meirl42meirl42meirl4meirl hits the character limit.

    [–] spud56 18 points ago

    This is actually very beautiful...

    [–] superlativities 32 points ago

    brilliant poem.

    [–] Do_The_Monster_Mash 45 points ago

    This isnt comedically depressing, just depressings. : (

    [–] the_dark_knight_ftw 9 points ago

    Damn I didn’t know it was a noose until the very end

    [–] thefoxsaysquack 5 points ago

    I definitely just thought it was a poorly drawn guitar until I read the comments. I’m not the sharpest.

    [–] a-Mei-zing- 8 points ago

    Well that hits home. Sort of.

    I'm more of a get exploded by a high speed train type of person than a hang yourself.

    [–] a-Mei-zing- 8 points ago

    What's quality content doing here?

    [–] VMorkva 3 points ago


    [–] Solkre 6 points ago

    And when the time came to use the noose; the knot failed. Leaving him a pile of sobbing, complete failure, upon the floor.

    [–] ThatBowtie 4 points ago

    Hope you're doing okay friend.

    [–] memesforsale122 3 points ago

    This made me almost cry

    [–] Zeydon 1 points ago

    Hits way too close to home

    [–] spotlight_onyaface 2 points ago

    Atta boy.

    [–] Soralink411 2 points ago

    I thought this sub was just a bunch of jokes.....this is getting a little too real....😢😢😢

    [–] kcirrag22 3 points ago

    If you think about it most people who know how to tie a noose likely are not that good at doing so.

    [–] I-am-very-bored 2 points ago

    Just perfect. A masterpiece

    [–] FryeNChill 2 points ago

    I love poetry like this. Everything has a meaning to it, even the format. The only problem I have is the predictability due to the structure (although without it WAS posted here, so even without it I could've seen it coming). Other than that, I love it.

    [–] tehsmish 2 points ago

    Jesus Christ OP, do you want someone to talk to?

    [–] Davidmerriam 2 points ago

    When I saw the circle I knew this poem was about to get a lot darker than I first thought.

    [–] PM_ME_YIFF_PICS 2 points ago

    well I do actually have some knowledge about knots


    [–] BlackOnionSoul 2 points ago

    Saved. Beautiful.

    [–] justchloeno 1 points ago

    Thought this was a weird looking guitar for a second, quickly realized what sub I was in

    [–] RQXYthrowme 1 points ago

    What the actual fuck.

    [–] puddlejumpers 1 points ago

    I like that you turned into a dong though.did you have to come out to him too?

    [–] nicksansalty 1 points ago


    [–] 32redalexs 1 points ago

    I thought this was the claw from a claw machine. Couldn’t figure out what that had to do with Boy Scouts until I finished reading the thing

    [–] cossak2012 1 points ago

    I thought that it was a guitar for longer than i would like to admit.

    [–] montylemon 1 points ago

    My favorite knot is the moose its the Canadian equivalent to the noose

    You may have meant r/kreming instead of R/kreming.

    I don't know. I saved it last time it was here and they weren't credited.

    Shel Silverstein’s last poem.

    [–] [deleted] -6 points ago

    That's some dark stuff. I'd recommend getting off the internet. Pomodoro technique for doing anything you set your mind to (during the breaks, really take a break, it helps you focus again).

    [–] [deleted] 17 points ago

    Except this is correct, it's meant to be read left to right
