mostly just changed how I saw things but I guess that counts

Ah, sorry, didn't see that thread.
>>
>>7574392

no worries, it basically died from people only posting jokes anyway instead of being serious so we can always do a serious one here

just a tip for next time though if you want a more serious thread where people open up you would be better off posting a picture that is more neutral like a nature scene so people don't feel like the thread is being made by a joker/troll/etc.

>Mankind what at its height in the Roman Empire.
The Roman Empire during it most of its history was a large state that was well-extended out of its limits that was in a constant state of moral, military, and economic decay. The idealized picture of ancient Rome was a consequence of the Renaissance and the Enlightenment's romantization of Rome because their extant material on Rome were ancient Roman historians that portrayed themselves (and the Greeks) as the best people ever.

>Survival of the fittest.
unfortunately, that also applies to ahmed and tyrone who not only are fit but well endowed too
>>
>>7574661
Then that romantization of Rome is the height of mankind. You won't see any other cultures with anything as glorious as that, fiction or not.

I've not read anything aside from the odd non-fiction (how to) book in the past 8 years or so
I'm a bit lost though so I've been looking for cool things to read so I read 'The Stranger' by Albert Camus but to me it was nothing but a short story about a made up kind of man essentially. Nobody acts or thinks like this man in real life
Can somebody help explain this book to me?

Do the girls find him "haha he's so eccentric" funny or "omg what a dweeb" funny?
>>
>>7574862
whatever you might have heard, the truth is girls can't resist fedoras. That explains the irrational hatred feminists feel for the fedora. It awakens primal submissive instincts. That's why they must stigmatize it
>>
>>7574372
I just got this one over the weekend and it is amazing. I particularly like when his character of Demopheles defends religion and beats off the fedora by stating that the truth of the parables outweighs the literal truth.
>>
>>7574862
It's because he's a fucking dweeb. He should be focusing on getting his shit together so he can fit in with normal people but he failed at both.
