Why don't we ever have a /r9k/ meet up? We could all literally be with one another and not be lonely anymore. We would all literally make it
I'd love to meet people from the internet but I live too far away. I've talked to some people that could be my best friends for the rest of my life if I were to meet them IRL, but I live in
Chileand most people in the internet are from the USA.
>Wanting to meet up with a bunch of reddit, tumblr, and >>>/soc/ faggots.
Op is one of the three.
Everyone would hate me because they think I'm a Chad
I don't think so
I met up with two people from r9k before and it was pretty relaxed, even though around other people I have stuttering issues and spill my spaghetti profusely
It's like if you're both awkward then they cancel each other out
I always imagined a 4chan "con" going down like this:
>Everyone makes reservations in hotels/ buildings that surround a park in a particular city
>Adopt a black child from an orphanage there or a nearby city
>They are your "avatar"
>Immediately drop them off at that park
>Scurry back to hotel/ reservation, peer out into the park from behind the blinds
>Everyone watches the little baby niglets interact, document it
>Leave city and come back to this Taiwanese door handle inspection forum with a fresh batch of nigger memes
Pic related was a /fit/ meet up. An /r9k/ one would be a fucking disaster
If the people here were actually autists irl with zero dignity, I'd have less trouble hanging out with them than regular peopel
I don't like social scenarios, too much faking
Even when I get complimented/ invited to the fun, it doesn't feel right without a bit of reality or trolling
Despite being more of a cyborg normie, I always gravitate towards the weirdos/ actual autists/ people with depression, cause I feel they're more real, so I can be real as well.
>Enjoy vidya, films, literature and memes.
Go back to reddit :\
Someone get this original hothead outta here
Real me would be intolerable. I like to make random noises + sing completely stupid shit, quote/ spew shitty memes, always complain about shit and debate to myself/ rant to others
But not about petty shit, but about shit that could go into a comedy routine or one of those talks on design/ infrastructure/ commentary on society
I'd be "an interesting character", but completely intolerably. I'd be poking and prodding people, making everyone uncomfortable and then saying some evil shit to either outright disgust or revel in that disgust with friends.
I wanna talk and talk and talk, yell my fucking head off
But even the "real me" is more tame than all that. I self deprecate, try having fun dumb debates and conversations about the state of things (that we have control over, nothing like politics)
And then there's the "me in public", who acts like a legit autist (if there's a chance to separate from people, I'll jump on that shit), stand alone, sit and stare at a wall, avoid looking even AROUND other people/ their general direction. I know most people here are just slightly nervous irl, but I legit stand in silence with a blank face. When it comes to conversation I emote/ act welcoming, but I just default to that "blank/ no substance here man, look elsewhere" shit
I got dragged along to a r9k/soc/b meeting at my uni.
Everyone was a weeb, either in computer science or some weird shit like urban design.
Beta as fuck white dudes, a lot of them were super senior for some reason.
Had a good convo with a few of them, offered to keep in touch with a few, but none did.
This is sweet anon but once you actually meet a robot you'll realize that the reason they have no loved ones is because robots have an external locus of control that inhibits their ability to develop healthy relationship skills.
The average person (who is self-aware) understands the role their actions and decisions play in the outcome of their life. They know that some things are out of their control but they learn healthy ways to cope with those things (i.e. self-care as a healthy coping mechanism after an uncontrollable event like a loved one dying). They take responsibility for their actions and shortcomings when it's appropriate. For instance, it would be inappropriate to blame yourself for a loved one's unexpected death, but it would be appropriate to take responsibility for your part in a recent break-up.
Robots do not have the ability to take responsibility for their issues, such as a relationship ending. Essentially they have victim-complexes. They feel inferior, blame others for their problems and actions, and ultimately continue the cycle of unhealthy relationships.
The truth is, if you look at a robot who has "no friends" after a little prying you'll actually find out that there ARE people in his life, they're just people who he's not close with because his actions have put them off and he's never owned up to it.
Find me a robot who claims that the world is out to get him, and I'll show you a robot who refuses to take responsibility for his harmful interpersonal actions.
>Robots do not have the ability to take responsibility for their issues, such as a relationship ending.
>such as a relationship ending
you stupid fucking normie, robots don't have relationships.
Yeah I'm kind of like that. Spit out random stuff and do little jigs/movements when alone. Not quite to your extent though, since I can still act normal around others for a little while. Typical anti-social.
/soc/ was alright at first, but it quickly devolved to the point where every thread on the 1st page is a camwhore thread for some different type of fetish.
I'm not really looking to meet up with normies and camwhores.
Everyone would think i'm Chad, plus i'm black, so i'd probably be hated. Oh well, such is life for us socially adept people.
How it will end.
Anyway get drunk together seems funny
fucking tired of this 'failed normie' meme
yeah, i failed at being a normie. You know why? Because I'm not suited for the lifestyle. Because I don't share normie values. I had my chance, and that showed what I was made of.
What, you think you're better because you had outside forces cuck you out of being a normie? I had my chance, but you're still waiting for your chance, if only you got a chance to succeed and not be a retarded poorfag you could become a normie? Fuck that shit
Because the vast majority of r9k users are ironic highschoolers coming here for the memes and feeling "in".
Sorry m8, you're on your own.
>you go to the r9k meetup and walk down to the banquet room that is booked
>shitbox vehicles and bicycles litter the front of the building
>there are no lights on inside, you wonder if anyone is inside
>you open the door
>it's dark but you can see about 30 faces of young, depressed men
>their faces illuminated by their laptop screens
>a couple moms are making snacks off to the side
>you walk in
>two obese men have you fill out a questionnaire to prove you aren't a Normie
>you sit down, pull out your laptop and begin posting on 4chan in the group
>the silence is only broken by keyboard typing
>suddenly, someone says something
>a man looks up and says "that feel when no gee effff"
>a large sigh comes from the group, you see tears well up in some of their eyes
>afterwards everyone goes home
>someone ends up committing suicide in the bathroom and the police need to clean up the building
I'd consider going to a Los Angeles meetup. But I think one of you guys would try and stab me.
Im Exactly the same way. More of a normie though, since i made a lot of friends by approaching robots, being real with them, and eventually they became normies too. Also have a gf with daddy issues.
Hate me if you want. It still wont land you a gf.
this is the exact opposite of how things are
lack of self awareness is where normalfag confidence comes from and is evident in the disbelief normalfags feel when confronted (are informed of) by robots in real life
Then it wouldn't be quite as much of my personal problem. But I dunno how stabby you guys are.
>trying to pretend what I think
>implying that isn't dangerously close to what projecting is
western society is on a suicide path
I reside within western influence
it is counter to my benefit to embrace the dissipation of western opportunity
In any group of people there's bound to be one Chad, robots or no. Chad's chaddiness is directly related to the average of the others present. If 49 identical robots show up to a meeting, and #50 is just a bit taller than the rest, then he gets the Chad title and the extra social advantages that go along with it.
I think r9k only works because of its anonymous nature.
Feel free to prove me wrong tho
>/k/ has meetups that are apparently epic
Oh they're very epic :^)
If I met up with any robot, it would be me showing up to a meetup and looking over from a safe distance before leaving.
Social anxiety is caused mainly by fear of rejection.
If you don't have to worry about being a bit weird then it's not really a problem for most.
Once you have normal dudes and women institute a social hierarchy where you have to tow a line then things go to shit.
This is why meetups generally don't go so well, /r9k/ in particular would be a bust as people would get lost even finding the meeting place.
I'm down to hang out and maybe go drinking
Temecula/Inland Empire area
>be failed normie\cyborg
>go to meet up
>all robots go REEEEEEEE, like some body snatcher shit
As a highschooler, i'm telling you now that a tiny minority of people go on 4chan, and most of them go on /b/. I'm one of two that actually go on /r9k/. I guarantee that it isnt a cool thing to do, and that you're delusional.
I live in Georgia. I went to AWA when Moot was there. It was weird seeing all the people from 4chan in one room.
I don't think I would ever attend a meetup from this board. Maybe /out/ or something with a shared hobby.
Most 4chan meet ups turn into gayshit and anons sucking each other off
at least the /a/ or /jp/ ones do, never again
I'll be in Berlin on 17.02
I've met people similar to me, even far more autistic.
With certain people I tend to do well (socially)
There are the down to earth normies, who may either be ugly or likely to be "robot that has turned into a normie", that start conversation with me. Maybe for the same reason I like to start conversation with people slightly more autistic than me; just trying to make everyone more comfortable/ more open. Cause there is no reason not to be.
These relations typically dwell on funny shit, sarcasm, those "lol this shit is crazy" nods to each other. These people are fucking awesome. I don't know, I feel like these relations don't dwell on some kind of dignity. Like trying to impress each other, or validate each other. It's more like you're both observers or something
I've also found that smiling helps a shitload
I didn't really know, but my face defaults to disgust mode. Resting bitch face. And I almost never really move/ stretch my face. Been making an effort to do that more, deliberately. I practice when I'm alone. Smile in conversation.
I've had insight that I need to make other people more comfortable about being vulnerable around me, but that makes it EXTREMELY hard to do my objective criticisms/ debates. Once they know a bit about how I am, what I like or don't like, understand that I never hate individuals personally, especially over petty shit, they're able to understand that even if they end up part of my criticism it's not that I hate them. I criticize myself all the time.
I don't know, it feels super challenging to open up because of this. I'm like an ENTP personality type, except with introverted tendencies. This shit fucking sucks- I feel like people on 4chan would fundamentally understand the self deprecating/ "no actual offence" stuff
>tfw live in the middle of west texas, 3 hours probably from the nearest robot
A Texas meetup would be cool, but there would only be 3 people since anywhere you host it, you're half-way across the state for most people.
Why don't we have an /r9k/ group suicide meet up?
Most of us have been very unhappy for a very long time. Let's face it: things haven't gotten any better; only worse. It's all downhill from here.
