Has there ever been a /lit/ meet up?
What would it be like?

Have you ever met anyone who browses /lit/ irl?
>>

>what would it be like?
6 people in a starbucks mumbling about Infinite Rainbow.
>>
>>7640195
When I went to see The end of the Tour, there was a guy quietly standing alone in line, a few metres behind reading Gravitys rainbow.

Everyone else in the theatre were 'artsy' rich kids.

I've no way to know for sure, but I know for a fact that a few of you guys are from Melbourne, so just maybe.

I met someone who drunkenly mentioned /lit/ memes in a small country town in Australia. They seemed cool
>>
>>7640195
>What would it be like?
really boring

I once posted in a lit survey thread (this was about three years ago) and some guy replied saying he was from the same town and wanted to study literature and French at university, same as me. I lived in a small town and only two high schools offered French. I had been to both schools at separate times (was expelled from the first) and knew they was only about 15 guys in town studying French, in the end I worked out who it was. In French class the next day I was like 'Hey Jesse, I see you browse lit, u read gravity's rainbow?'. He hadn't and we never really talked about it again.

>tfw he read l'etranger in french and i read it in english like the pleb i am
>tfw i gave up on french, he went to france after year 12 for a year

I'm from Melbourne and cosplayed as David Foster Wallace to see that movie at Nova in Carlton

it would be shit.it would be mostly faggots discussing how shit literature these days are and how good it was 100 years ago
>>
>>7640195
I walked into a store to get coffee once. Some fugly autist screamed "Gravity's Rainbow !!!!!!" I said "yeah." We looked at each other and then I left. I assume it would be like that.

>>7640195

On my first day working at B&N, I started laughing at this kid who tried to buy a bunch of meme books like Notes from Underground, Blood Meridian, and Crying of Lot 49. There's no way he could have wanted to buy those specific books and not be a c/lit/.

My boss yelled at me and told me not to criticize the customer's choices, so I quit because I didn't want to spend my time putting up with people buying pleb garbage and not saying something about it.

Dublin was nice, though. I miss it already.

Most of you are just as stereotypical and hiveminded as the people from Tumblr.
>white, male, right wing, awkward childhood and teens, not many friends, life decisions based on internet suggestions, lack of a role model, narcissistic, pretentious, contrarian and pseudo intellectual
Reddit today is basically a watered down 4chan. (less memes and blatant racism)
>>7640696
I guess you are an imageboard writer then.
>>7640706
Maybe because you are one of them

Funnily enough, I actually knew two hookers on a personal level and they weren't that much fun. I guess they were interesting characters though.

The difference between Reddit and 4chan will always be username's and Upvotes.
Consequently, this is the same reason why 4chan is interesting, and Reddit is just a big circle-jerk.
I don't frequent Reddit, but I know people who do, the most popular opinions are placed on a pedestal, while the unpopular opinions are drowned and shunned.
You can never have an open conversation, exploring multifarious facets, as long as that feature exists.
If I wanted to read pseudo-yokel's attempting to impress other pseudo-yokels with tired puns and regurgitated opinions, then I would go to YouTube.
The wonderful thing about 4Chan is that even if people decide to circle-jerk, or team up on an anon with an unpopular opinion, their comment will remain, and expand a person's scope of thinking.
Reddit is just water circling a drain, fuck you for comparing Reddit to 4chan.
>>
>>7640742
Nice overused meme, just as original as I would expect from /lit/.
>>7640746
The problem isn't that you people aren't funny, you are ! For like 2 days, after that it's just the same thing over and over again. Only certain kind of people tell a joke that many times and expect it to be funny all the time, the unfunny and the socially uncalibrated.

4chan DOES have a voting system in the form of replies. When you see a post that has 40 replies, that's the same thing as an up voted post on Reddit.

However, it's effect is actually worse than the voting system of Reddit: since only the loudest, most obnoxious, most hateful posters get this many replies, it encourages this type of posting. It's very evident on boards like /v/. People desperately try to get noticed. At least on Reddit they do so by trying to be clever or funny instead of controversial and edgy. This is one of the many reasons for 4chans decline in recent years. Take a look at a thread from
2011: there are fewer shitposters. There are other factors, too.

I've always hated Reddit (especially its godawful layout) but I may migrate there because 4chan has become insufferable. I've been here for a long time so o can definitely say I'm not making it up.
>>
>>7640730

Posters on 4chan aren't narcissists. They are insecure and insult others to cope with their overall feeling of inferiority.
>>
>>7640841
>4chan DOES have a voting system in the form of replies.
That's some interesting mental gymnastics there.
>>
>>7640795

Is that comment supposed to be clever? Because it's not. A country isn't a fucking house.
>>
>>7640854

It's true, and others have noticed it as well. I'm not even being original. Plus I have no idea what you mean by "mental gymnastics".

Go to /v/. make a thread/post that hates on a particular, popular game. Insult its fan base. Use a ton of curses and buzzwords.

Now make a thread/post with a post with thoughtful criticism on a game. Don't call it "shit". Say that you respect anyone who enjoys it and you can see why they do.

See which gets more replies.
>>
>>7640869
Nah I'm not going anywhere near /v/.
My point is that you have to be performing some mental gymnastics to ignore the fact that reddit also has a reply system. By and large, this is how conversation works. When people are obnoxious in real life, they also get more attention. This is just as true on reddit as it is on 4chan as it is on a BBS forum or youtube or as it is anywhere. It's an inescapable part of human interation. Not to mention that it has always been the case, so it doesn't make sense to blame any recent "decline" on something that hasn't changed.
I'm inclined to believe that saying it's better or worse is a meaningless value judgement, it's always in flux, it's more likely that you've just grown tired or out of it.
Migrate if you want, it's no skin off my duck's back, I'm just being pedantic because I think your reasoning is flawed.

You can sort comments on reddit, you can sort them by date/upvotes/controversy, etc.
But lets ignore this fact, because that's not even my point. I guess you just recently ( a couple of years) discovered 4chan so you aren't really aware of what is happening here.

Back in the day (lets say 5 - 6 years) you still could discuss several topics in here, sure you had some inside joke here and there but that was just something to 'spice' the discussion a little bit. Nowadays there is almost no discussion at all, people just post memes endlessly, parrot the same garbage the other people say without even doing any research at all. The worst thing is, at least for me this attitude would be acceptable if at least it was funny, but it's not, it's just boring and unoriginal. Despite 4chan having almost no rules, being in theory a great place for free discussion, its own users transformed it into this unfunny, unoriginal abomination. The medium(4chan) not being the problem, we can deduce it's the users who make this place awful, that's why a meet up of pretty much any popular board on 4chan would not be a pleasant experience

This guy is a nice example of the modern 4chan user
>>7640795
>>7640742
Sadly this kind of people now are the majority of the 4chan population
>>
>>7640786
No, they both seemed to suffer severe personality disorders. One was a poor Romanian girl and the other was a well-off white girl who did it part-time for fun, I guess.

>>7640782
That's a pretty big claim to make about the entire global population of white men.

Your question didn't deserve a more thoughtful response, sorry.

>>7641567
Basically I posted in a thread about loneliness since I was just about to finish high school, and I got a few replies offering to chat with me over email. We exchanged ~150 pages worth of emails in a month and then got each other's numbers and were together by then. After a month, with nothing else to do, I moved across the continent to live with him for a year. It wasn't awkward meeting him since we already talked over the phone, vidchat, etc. for a long time before then. (And to the curious anons: yes, we had sex the first night.) I'm in my first year of university now, so we're long-distance again, but it's still going great. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

>>7641687

>>7641690

>This question also doesn't deserve a thoughtful response. Sorry anon, try again.
not that guy, but why not? it's pretty relevant to contemporary relationship dynamics, especially considering it's an ldr
>>
>>7641742
Has Grace really been gone for two years or is this bitch lying to us? I say we make sure reve's still alive and on crack because at least she posts nudes.
>>
>>7641769
Okay, then no, I don't plan on cucking him, cheating, etc. I'm not sure why a long-distance relationship is so hard for some people, but I guess we started out long-distance anyways so it's not as big of a deal. I'm also not some sexually experimental socialite, I don't really go to parties, don't have many friends, etc. so I'm not really tempted by anything.

I've only met one /lit/izen irl. I was at a local show smoking a cigarette and having a beer and talking to another guy and he mentioned he was reading Gravity's Rainbow. I told him it was a meme book and then you know thirty minutes later we were sucking each other off in the bathroom. He was a tall jewish kid in his late twenties. Seemed nice enough. I think he had a girlfriend.


Also lol @ the guy mentioning grace/reve. That girl was adorable. We had many drugged out conversations together. We were going to meet then I got loveshy and stopped talking to her.
