Was 2006-2011 really that better than 2011-2016? Can any of you older fags confirm? It seems like so many things went to shit since then How did women go to shit in such a quick time?
>you will never experience the 2008 gentleman days of /r9k/ when half the board consisted of high functioning sociopaths engaging in enlightening discussions
>you will never experience 2008 /mu/ when you had 5 gigs of downloaded minimal techno, post-punk, post-rock from mediafire or megaupload
First and last time I had sex was in 2009
I'm 28. I don't recall much, everything else pretty much seems the same. Yesterday I was laughing when thinking about the POS desktop computer I first brought to college. I like the fact that girls wear leggings now, that's hot. When I was in high school they just had those ugly rectangular pants, and they weren't very tight but sometimes you did get to see some nice camel toe.
I'm a woman that's been here since 2006 and /r9k/ since 2008 so I could technically provide light on both of these queries but I don't believe that women "have" gone to shit, I believe that as a result of the internet becoming more ingrained in our social culture all of us are being exposed to a myriad of information, visual or otherwise, that we wouldn't have previously seen.
The internet back in 2006 was less "YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT THIS DUMB BITCH HAD DONE TO HER FACE" and more "20 pictures of cats that will brighten up your day" and weird niche sites for pictures of supposed ghosts and shit.
Basically clickbait, internet pornography and social media is ruining people, especially the generation below us born into the 00's who have grown up into an era where they have never not know the internet.
It's like when people talk about how refined and respectful the celebrities and film stars of the 1920's through to the 50's were compared to today's "debauched" celebrity but they weren't, you had celebrities having affairs with presidents, drugs were fucking EVERYWHERE, Monroe herself had something like 6-7 abortions in her lifetime.
It's not that things were better "in the old days", it's that you weren't getting to hear or see most of the bad shit.
Remember Anons, nostalgia is a dirty liar.
Have a sexy lady for your troubles.
How much do you actually think life could have changed inside of a decade?
You do realize that we've been the same animal for like a few hundred thousand years and that society was almost completely the same a decade ago, right?
Fuck you and your adolescent lack of perspective about how things change.
2011-present actually pretty great for me in many ways, finally got some real friends (in 2011), did some awesome stuff, made some money from getting a job, did some new stuff, 2006-2011 me fucking sucked, no friends, high school, community college, etc etc
I don't know about you but does anything feel like time is going faster than it should? I don't know if that's the normal progression but now thanks to shit like social media I feel like we're getting things faster and quicker, then tossing whatever is popular in favour of the next fad because everyone is now too ADHD stricken.
