    [–] What is something that Reddit has ruined for you? TheOneAboveAll 105 points ago in AskReddit

    They do live in peace on reddit. They just push and downvote the minority viewpoint and beat it to submission. Then they talk about how impartial and open minded they are because they considered the opposing viewpoint for half a second before attacking it some more.

    [–] What is the longest you've gone without any significant human interaction? TheOneAboveAll 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I'm currently going through 5.5 years of not having talked to anyone outside my family. Not counting online.

    [–] College graduates, what are your thoughts on college? TheOneAboveAll 1 points ago in AskReddit

    i think for most people it has become a sort of extended adolescence where you push off adult worries for a few years (while racking up debt). Very few high school graduates have a life path already set out and it would be silly to expect them to just hit the ground running when most haven't even thought about adult worries or responsibilities. Nobody wants to say to themselves, "Well, I should just resign myself to the fact that I'm going to be stuck with crappy jobs so there's no point in attending college. I'll just start working at Starbucks right out of college with no hope for better prospects." People attend college and get that worthless degree to give themselves hope for a better future. That even though they're working at starbucks, maybe they'll get a call back from one of the 50 applications they put in related to their major and move up. Colleges sell hope, not degrees.

    [–] What is the best 'So bad it's good' movie you've ever seen? TheOneAboveAll 5 points ago in AskReddit

    I always see The Cat in the Hat on lists of worst children's movies. The main criticism being that it's unfaithful to the source material, but if it was faithful, it wouldn't be a good, nor long, movie. And people tend to be so snooty over comedic movies. If it makes you laugh, it's a good comedy, even if it lacks 'character development' or some other critic buzzword.

    [–] How was your college/university experience? TheOneAboveAll 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I was overwhelmed by it all. I did well all first. But the exposure to so many new people was too much and I locked myself in my room only leaving to eat and shower. I would leave my room on occasion to pretend to have a life, but I'd just go to the library. I was overwhelmed with fear of talking to people and never attended classes except for the first few days or so. I obsessedly mapped out my plan to avoid as many people as possible whenever I was forced to leave my room to do something. I always felt like a stranger who didn't deserve to attend college. Or maybe it was a dream. Every waking moment revolved around avoiding as many people as possible. Almost all the classes were just repeats of those I took in high school and I could just sleep walk through them and pass, but the social anxiety was too much.

    But even as I describe it as a fear or anxiety, it never seemed that way to me. It felt like a mental block or an invisible wall that would prevent me from talking to anyone. Social paralysis.

    That was 5 years ago. Every single night since I've left I've dreamed about my time there. 5 years ago was also the last time I've talked to someone outside of my own family.

    [–] Things got a little heavier than they already were TheOneAboveAll 1 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    Except divorce tends to screw you over alimony and such. It's not something you can just do.

    [–] are there any podcasts about classic literature and literature schools? TheOneAboveAll 10 points ago in books

    It's pretty clear that you only want to find a classics podcast because you want to sound more cultured and knowledgeable without actually doing any of the work. You want someone else to do all the hard work so you can parrot back their words and put on the persona of a well read man.

    But honestly who cares about anyone's selfish or self righteous intentions for literature. I'll try and help you out. If you haven't heard of him, there's a guy called Harold Bloom who seems to be what you're looking for. Type his name on YouTube and look for some long videos where he's speaking. Convert them to mp3 and enjoy. Also his books like "The Western Canon" and "Genius" are similar.

    Although there are "schools of literature", it's not that simple since a lot of great writers can't be put into "schools" since a great writer's uniqueness and strangeness is often what makes them endure over time.

    [–] Game Thread: Houston Texans (4-7) at Tennessee Titans (7-4) TheOneAboveAll 9 points ago in nfl

    I'm totally completely shocked. Tom Savage getting a turnover on a critical game moment???? What is this? Reality??

    [–] Game Thread: Cleveland Browns (0-11) at Los Angeles Chargers (5-6) TheOneAboveAll 1 points ago in nfl

    Long time since I've payed attention to a Browns game.

    I'm ready to see the first 300 yard receiving game.

    [–] Game Thread: Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans TheOneAboveAll 15 points ago in Texans

    Only sadistic fucks and hardcore fans watching this shit.

    [–] Everyone thinks I'm being nice... TheOneAboveAll 3 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    Don't attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by ignorance.

    I had always assumed all pans were more or less the same and am only learning about the differences from this thread.

    [–] When did you realize that you're not as smart as you thought you were? TheOneAboveAll 2 points ago in AskReddit

    It's sad that this is what's happening to most workplaces nowadays and that your realization is what lots of people are going to have to learn.
    In any decent sized company, HR has all the power.

    [–] Aside from Reddit, what has been the biggest waste of time you can't get back? TheOneAboveAll 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Over sleeping. And all those times where just did nothing. Just stared at something or did something mindless.

    [–] Still one of the best and most underloved games of all time TheOneAboveAll 1 points ago in PS3

    It sure wasn't under loved when it came out. It was the cornerstone of the PS3 at the time. But this cover looks so much cooler than the American version.
