I am 33 years old
I was born in 1982
This probably makes me older than 90% of the users of 4chan
Ask me anything
It hasn't been 24 hours, I got it like at 10pm yesterday and it's 9am here. She approached me so I know she'll respond, I just want to increase my chances of getting pussy
You are about to graduate, that alone is an achievement despite what you may think given the current economic climate. Its your call. You are ridiculously young. If you have the opportunity and can afford it then I'd say grad school would be worthwhile. All depends what your current career goals are. Take it from an older guy that had zero career plans and didn't get a proper education.
Killing yourself would be silly. You might as well just let the ride take its course, you'll be dead soon enough, we all will
I was also born in 1982. Has your life been shittier than mine?
Lets hear a brief summary of your life, friend.
We are both posting on /r9k/ at 33 years of fucking age. I think its fair to say that neither of us have exactly excelled ourselves
I reside in the United Kingdom
I am unemployed
My biggest regret would be not getting a degree, or not getting laid or having a gf until my late 20s. Least I swerved Wizardhood I suppose. But its not much consolation knowing how much I missed on in my younger years
>graduted uni with STEM degree
>be NEET 3 years
>work 3 years working my way up to software testing manager
>pay was shit for IT ($30-40k)
>become NEET for 5 years (but still have my own place living off savings)
>run out of money
>move back to parents' house
I have no plans. I cannot face wage slavery yet I'm desperate to leave home and become independent at last. My apathy grows by the day. I'm in a strange no mans land where I'm not depressed enough to kill myself or seek help but yet not emotionally stable enough to try and make changes. I just sit....spend time on 4chan, fantasize, jerk off, waiting for some motivation or a miracle.
I split with my gf some time ago. I never got over it. Doubt I ever will.
How does it make you feel knowing that you have maybe 15 more years to live before your heart explodes from being a burger faggot, also you never had anything that that kid did in the picture
I called in sick on my 30th birthday, I bought taco bell and liquir and got destroyed, I also got so drunk I fapped to a trap not even knowing there was a massive penis all in all pretty depressing
I'm turning 30 this year too. I'm going to take time off and go off grid, probably some place like Scotland with a shitty cell phone signal, get wasted, maybe to drugs, anything.
I don't want to be conscious when it happens.
'87 was definitely the most faggoty year of the 80s
I beg to differ. Barring terminal illness, freak accident, WW3 or suicide, I expect I will live a fairly long life. I am a lanklet with perfect BMI and I eat healthily. I live in a safe, developed country in a sheltered suburb with my mommy. I expect I'll make it till at least my 70s. Not that I particularly care.
But you're right with your other comment. I never had any of that stuff. A NES was my dream console (still is) but was beyond my parents means. I remember playing a demo unit in a department store every weekend in the late 80s. I had to settle for a cheapo Atari and Spectrum ZX
I just went out with my friends to various bars. I don't like parties etc so I was glad it was a low key thing
'87fag also reporting in.
Honestly I'll probably come to 4chan until the day it 404s.
Feels weird to be pushing 30. I guess at least I'm not a complete failure. At least I finished college and got married. Have a complete shit job, though. Fuck it.
I dreaded turning 30 for years, to the point I had a mid 20s crisis thinking about it. Now at 33, 30 literally seems young. 31 and 32 are far worse, they are not milestones and you just notice your 20s fade away into the distance whilst everything around you changes.
Wish I was 30 again
I got NES down the road I remember at christmass time coke had bottlecaps of santa mario and if you got the right one you won a NES, till then i played the ol atari and went to actual arcade places, not that these younger faggots know anything about that or roller skating too
Yeah, I've been dreading 30 since since I was 24.
I've become paranoid about my health - things I paid no attention to at 22 now warrant a calling a doctor.
Every foggy batch of piss is diabetes, every bit of numb tingling is a blood clot, every sore spot is cancer.
I have the feeling that by 33, I will have either gone completely nuts, or I'll have stopped caring altogether.
>>26413552 here. How's the hair situation?
I've been thinning out on the top and hairline slowly but steadily since about 23. I recently started using special shampoo and foam, but I don't have high hopes.
At least my dad says I have more hair than he did are my age.
NES were expensive as fuck, and the games. I only knew one kid who had one and he was a spoilt brat. The Atari served me well until by Spectrum. I still wanted a NES in the early 90s but my mom duped me into accepting a C64 which, although it was a piece of shit, holds many happy memories to this day. I eventually got a SNES so I have no complaints
As someone who is a jack of all trades and master of fuck all, you need to practice incessantly, consistently and without let up. I simply don't have the attention span, passion or self-esteem to have got really good at anything, despite having many creative interests. You can get "good" with nothing more than consistent, moderate effort over a number of years. I play guitar for instance and I am "good" as a result of years of aimless jamming and trial and error. Yet I would be pitiful up against a guy that had practiced diligently for the same amount of time that I have been playing (almost 20 years now)
Number 1 life lesson I have learned - hard work is pretty much everything. Hence why I have nothing, I simply don't work hard enough or have the stomach for inevitable failures and rejections.
My penis is 6 x 5.8. I'm not particularly happy with it but I believe the girth is impressive, if surveys are to be believed. I don't get the trap thing at all. If they were fapping to men then fair enough, that makes them full on gay. But mos of these traps are usually indistinguishable from real women apart from their cocks. Its probably the result of too much porn at a young age, morphing sexual tastes and looking for novelty. Beats me.
My hair is holding out well. My temples are receding every so slightly but in no way could I be considered bald or thinning. Going bald is one of my biggest fears. You accept as a man that it is likely you will lose at least some of your hair. Its whether your face suits it. Mine most certainly would not.
I have friends who went from full head to totally bald in the space of a couple of years. Its pure genetics it seems. Nothing you can do but make the most of a bad situation
I'm from 85 and 30 years old. I've been here since I was 20. I've been called a robot and a normie.
Who cares about age, anon? We're all going to end up in the same place anyway. Some faster than others, but who cares.
I suspect there's a lot more oldfags hanging out 4chan than we initially suspect. There's always going to be a renewable supply of edgy 14 year olds discovering the place for the first time, but it seems like most teens these days are stuck to their phones and simply stick with whatever "social media app" is hip for the next six months. I bet huge swaths of 4chan users are people who discovered the place sometime in the 00s and just never left (or check back in every so often).
Been on 4chan since '07.I originally migrated here from ebaumsworld after /b/ kept raiding the place and I was curious about this "toilet of the internet" everyone kept talking about
There must be shitloads of guys in their late 20s/early 30s on 4chan when you think about it
Yet way beyond my prime according to this place.
I'd rather share something meaningful than just split costs for survival but to each his own I guess.
I'm not anyone's gf so I'm certainly not yours, don't worry, she isn't posting on 4 chan.
But I'm not even in it for that, and she even less likely. I'm in it because I genuinely like her as a person. Not even horny or even desire to get that poon even though I'm kv myself.
It's ok. I was only joking and just wanted to talk. I already have a wife anyway. I just want friends in life life.
I very rarely disclose my gender (only in response to something somewhat relevant), and yeah he does know because he gets on here too from time to time. We often browse together.
Yeah, in a couple of years. I don't want to wait too much longer because I'll be a dried up old cunt by then. >inb4 i already am
i'm 33 too you gay asshole, stop pretending like we know anything.
if you guys want to know how to keep coming to this board well into your 30s, ask me or this gay faggot. otherwise maybe don't.
It's fine, greentext is only great line-initially (though how do you not know that?). I believe there used to be syntax spoiler wizardry to make green greentext midline, but I never learned them.
>we often browse together
I hope I'll find someone with whom I can exchange screencaps and shitposting.
As for the kids, before 35 is still quite ok, but if I were you i would get down to it immediately.
The 90s were awesome, the last great feelgood era before the internet came along and ruined everything.
I vaguely recall the news headlines at the time. I live in the UK so it wasn't as huge a deal as in America I suppose. I remember thinking it was just fucking scary at the time that it could happen. Now, in hindsight and with all the subsequent shootings that have occurred, I can see that these kids are always driven to the point of insanity by American society and the school system you have.
Thank you. I hope to find some good friends someday that I can somewhat relate to at all, at least I have my wife to keep me sane. She's my only real friend I guess, so that's good..
>you remember when edm was called techno
>you remember when molly was called ecstasy
>you remember when indie rock was called college rock
The 90's were bitchin' and edgy as fuck. I loved every minute.
>The 90s were awesome, the last great feelgood era before the internet came along and ruined everything.
Very true, famila. Now everything is fake and doesn't feel real.
Is today's youth retarded? Because we went to uni pre 2008-crash, now you look at the world two minutes and you know your gender studies won't cut it.
Well gender studies is thanks to the new awful brand of feminism so I guess that is different.
i don't really blame the kids, everyone in their life has basically told them from the day they were born that if they don't get some type of uni degree they are complete failures
and all it has done is create a huge bubble of debt that will eventually fuck everything up again like 2008
>The 90s were awesome, the last great feelgood era before the internet came along and ruined everything.
The internet was good for a few years into the 00s. When it was just misfits talking on message boards and sharing their projects and art.
That all changed around 06-07 i.e. when facebook got big. Say what you will about myspace, at least nobody used it as their own personal get-rich-quick scheme. It never convinced boring normalfags that they were somehow destined for stardom and worthy of fame (except for Tila Tequila, but look where that got her).
Nowadays the internet has become just another utility. It's like water or electricity. 98% of the stuff on it is just there so somebody can make a quick buck or function in everyday life. All these techbros are thinking they can change the world and become millionaires thanks to their crackpot "startups"
Thanks a load, Zuckerburg.
>All these techbros are thinking they can change the world and become millionaires thanks to their crackpot "startups"
i think the worst lot of those types of people are the ones who quit their job to 'follow their passion' and make another shitty irrelevant app or game for mobiles
Cuckerberg and his ilk have literally made the planet a worse place to be and negatively impacted society in a non-reversable way
But hey, least that autistic jew gets to make tens of billions
