I fucking hate this site. I had not internet by month, and only thing i was doing was reading books (neet here), and i really fealt better, i havent crying once since withdrawal. This feeling, when you see a "interesting thread", and you read it whole cause well you started reading it; and all those posts are so sad and pretentious and not interesting at all; always i end with this feeling of complete waste of time. Generaly most of internet seems likely depressing. Just - you know, so souless and boring. What are some books that will help me appreciate internet?
the Internet is a cultural wasteland, it's depressing, soulless and full of pretentious cunts. the good thing about this site, compared to, say reddit, is you occasionally get a glimpse of authenticity in between all the circlejerks and meaningless posturing, but that is still all too rare. IMO try doing something else.
try reading Marshall McLuhan, it might not make your internet experience more enjoyable but it might help you understand it.

I was literally amazed when I read the first 50 pages of a John Gray book and later on a Zizek book recently (haven't finished more than one book since November). They were so interesting, erudite, and insightful After so much 4chan browsing I was pretty sure I knew everything, but maybe not. I'm now worreid that I'm an idiot who doesn't know how dumb he is
