reminds me of:
Im glad my parents weren't like that
My mom was gaming by herself when my big bro was in diapers. She would dream about secrets in Mario World, wake up and they'd be real. We've played Mario World, Donkey Kong Country and quite a few other games together. It's a damn shame she has motion sickness and can't watch or play any 3D game
I never understood why the majority of people set the volume so high.
Every single time i saw someone wearing headphones they had extremely loud sound leaking through them.
If i make Windows \ Player Volume more than 30 i'll be deaf
>not exercising at least one hour a day
you do, right /v/?
>"You're playing too many video games! They rewire your brain!"
>not taking the time to work out or do some physical labor and shower just to get that amazing feeling of sitting down knowing you can enjoy the vidya without having wasted the day for the rest of the day
>in dorm all week, summer too
>be home at weekends
>mom and little sister are literally shouting at each other, then crying
>ask father if they are doing this all week
>he sighs and says yes
Of course I raise the volume, I didn't come home for this.
i spend so much my time playing video games and browsing /v/ that i forget to eat and only have 1 or 2 (max) meals a day, and even those are small
im not in danger of dying of cardiac arest mind you
why would I do it
no seriously, why would i do it
muscles are useless in this day and age, and if you want them for aesthetics, i dont give a fuck
oh and im not fat, im a hungry skeleton
>WHY DO YOU SIT UP THERE AND PLAY VIDEOGAMES INSTEAD OF DOING SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE
>"It's not like either of you two went to College. I'm pretty busy most of the time."
and then they go away.
Anyone got the pic of the guy going like this? I tried my best to draw him, would appreciate it if you could find it
I'd like to but can't afford to go to the gym and my family would just laugh at me for it if I did it at home, at least I'm moving away for uni next month and have a little more freedom
> caring about what other people say
> doing something you like is considered a failure
You should get a therapist to raise your self esteem and stop caring about what others say or how society labels you
> My dad was the one who introduced me to video games
> My mother actually tried to learn about them a little because my dad and me played
> They both understood concepts like saving and playing online
Man, its really surprising to me how many parents are assholes. I guess I should be glad I got good ones.
>not having a nice place of your own
Even a NEET can live alone.
I go running every day 7.5 km and then swimming. Why don't you?
my life is shit anyway, no future, no job, no studies, no gf
the only reason i dont kill myself is because im a pussy
oh and i hate videogames, i only watch anime with cute girls, its the only gay to avoid the dreadful introspection
>seeing people having issues with other people/friends/relations from one thing to the other
>they ask me why I don't have any friends
if you just sat around moving your arm around and typing at a keyboard all day, how hungry could you possibly get?
maybe he just has his intake/outake balanced this way
hes going to have no fucking muscle mass soon enough though and that will probably be a problem
>"Anon you only sit in your room the whole day! You should really get out more and do something with your friends!"
>go out with friends every 2-3 days

She still calls me once or twice every week to ask if everything is okay. She is really overprotective.
He just can't leave, my little sister would certainly want to stay with our mother, and she (my sister) has diabetes. My mother's pay might not even cover my sister, not even her and a house.
I'd support him 100% if he was to leave though.
I kinda know this feel, years ago everything was pretty chill with my friends but they stopped inviting me out anywhere suddenly, and in the rare times that I see them now they are arguing all the fucking time over stupid shit
>How would you manage that?
NEETs depending on the government can be supported. The fact my tax money goes to these fucks pains me but i stopped caring, nothing i can do about it.
>Can't afford to move out
>Mum can't afford me to move out
>Stay in my room all day because I don't want to deal with my mum and her hoarding and diarrhea
>My therapist dropped me from CBT because I wasn't doing my homework
>Homework was to hang out with my mum every day
Still living with a parent at 27 is really fun you guys..
My parents weren't assholes, but they were afraid of there being a negative affect of playing too much video games, so for many years as a kid, I could only play half an hour a day and I could bank that time for a week to play it all on Saturday.
Its fine anon,everybody loves your mom
Don't take it the wrong way, I'm not fat (skinnyfat skeleton). It's just that buying healthy food and cooking it takes more time and money than just buying a pack of [whatever] for [meal]. I could probably afford a gym membership too, but besides having no idea of how to use any of the machines, the real problem is getting there.
So basically I'm stuck.
>have no job
>all I do play vidya and go gym
>been searching for months but no luck

>family laugh and jest and say I'm gay
Life's a bitch, /v/
Man, fucking runescape. I still remember the kid who showed me that shit back in the day. It blew my goddamn mind.
Just preaching the truth. The 90's was a pretty solid time to be a kid.
Yeah, then let's be a failure all together woo-pee!
Friends only bring troubles and make you waste money
saw on the fucking news this morning, god why was i watching that shit, NEW REPORT!!
kid who play up to an hour a day of video games may be better off! but kids who play more than 3 hours a day may be worse, and may be less polite
WELL NO FUCKING SHIT kids with boundaries in one area of their life are better adjusted than kids who don't have as clear boundaries? someone fucking call god, we've figured this humanity shit out now. we can move on to the next level.
or maybe, FUCKING MAYBE the kids who only get an hour, also have limits on other shit, and parents who actually give them attention and make them do homework and not be fucking assholes and shit, whereas the kids that spend over 3 hours a day playing vidya DON'T.
god damn what the fuck.
She's bi-polar and on a fistful of meds every day. She sleeps till like 6pm every single day on the sofa then complains about not being able to sleep at night.
She's not had a solid bowel movement for 2 years. Sometimes she shits herself and doesn't even notice(not done that for a while) The house smells like a dead body every time she goes to the toilet.
And my therapist still wanted me to spend an hour with her every day. We only have one couch in the living room. She wanted me to sit there on the floor for an hour away from my PC.
Fuck you. My PC is the only reason I haven't killed myself yet.
Not that guy, but where I'm from it's still a relatively new trend so most of my family isn't really familiarised with the concept (gym = for fat people in their heads, and why would I, a skeleton, want to go to a gym?)
Nigga I just went to my local market, asked if they need a cashier and boom, I had work. Sure, not the kind of work I was looking for, but sitting around on your fat unemployed ass and saying "Muh I cant find job" is pathetic. Just work as anything as you search for a real job.
Why are you not getting money for playing video games, /v/?
I finally got a good job I enjoy with decent pay after 2+ years of seeking, a lot of which was voluntary work too.
After payday tomorrow I can finally build the gaming rig I've been wanting for over 5 years.
And I still find time to take part in my hobbies.
...Feels good man.
> living in second world country, where "going outside" means either getting shitface drunk, or going to football match just so you can smash faces with benches and bricks, and get beaten the living shit out by OMON
>Ok little boy come here and let me teach you what I know
I wish those positions were free or I would do it in a heartbeat. But nope, only sales assistance or manager roles
Why didn't you do it so you could claim your prize?
I'm all for people sitting around playing vidya all day if that's what they want to do, but at least don't drag your parents into it. Get a part-time job, buy a cheap-ass apartment, and provide for yourself. You're dragging your parents down and embarrassing them.
Sure you did anon, sure you did.

It sure is. I was born with tinnitus, so sometimes when I listen to my music before I go to sleep it goes haywire. It's enjoyable half of the time for some reason, and the other half of the time it really doesn't affect me.
>"I don't want you to play VIDEOGAME anymore anon, it's bad and evil and takes away food from kids in africa"
>blacklist in internet explorer some random shit URL like www.videogame.ru
At least I don't remember them deleting shortcuts trying to delete games.
Give me another year and I will do it Still got some fat to cut
If you're an adult and you still live with your parents,
then your parents really truly love you.
I WISH I had that. I WISH I had parents I could move back in with. It's not easy out here, being an adult is hard. And I'm doing it, I'm managing, but that's halfway motivated by the knowledge that if I fail, I'll have to go back to the hell that was my life before this. I'd kill myself,
and this time, I wouldn't pussy out before I was done.
Chie is a fucking slut. Just imagine the amount of sausage she had between those lips. She was probably the town bike before you came around and she was instantly lusting after your salami next.
Her phonenumber is probably all over public toilets with the annotation that she's willing to do anything for a beefbowl.
And remember those 3 guys from her S rank? As soon as you enter the train to go back home those guys probably rape her and NTR the shit out of her, turning her into a sexslave so they don't have to pay for the meat to take turns on her.
i know they love me anon but now i'm failing for 3 people instead of just myself
>boo hoo I want a job
>but I don't want this kind of job
a job is something you do for money, not necessarily because you enjoy it
Erm... Who are you quoting exactly????
mate, you can do starter body weight routines, in your own room. i did it for like, a month, then decided i was too lazy for all that shit, but in the month or so that i did it i put on like 10lbs in muscle. i actually have some form of pecs now and can do 10 push ups, and while it's kinda nice, i just don't give enough fucks to continue. i'm just lazy, and happy being a stick.
also, protein powder, that's high cal is cheap on amazon. look for MRM all natural gainer.
if you want to do it, you can.
as for me? life is short, and meaningless. if it doesn't make me happy, or change something i care about, why fucking bother?
>make dirty jokes and she joked about incest once
Nope, I'm fat. But it's not my fault, there was a Cracked article saying that 99% of people could not keep off the weight they loss. So why bother if it's virtually impossible?
>finally do something to make my mom proud
>get a job, work my ass off on a vocational course
>finally got the qualifications to go away to college
>leaving in september

>leaving in a month
d-did I do good, /v/?
My mom once joked about helping me masturbate, it was awkward as fuck and I didn't even know how to answer
In retrospcet I should've gone with it to see if I could get her to do it
My friends always talk about her titties and what they'd do to her to me. I don't know why they'd talk to me about their sick fantasies with my mother, but hey, shit isn't always good.
I don't plan to nail my 38 year old mother just cause of one incest joke.
>tfw she did it infront of your best friend and she joked about you being gay once infront of friends too
feels fine having a mother that can joke about shit.
People who write for Cracked are not smart, trustworthy people. Do not trust what you read on Cracked, it is entertainment, not information.
Source: my roommate writes for Cracked. He's the stupidest motherfucker I have ever met.

fuck being such a social retard
this is what i was doing. it worked, but exercise doesn't make me happy.
Dudebro, it's the law of thermodynamics, if you eat fewer calories than you use in a day you will lose weight and if you eat more than you gain weight. You can't keep the same diet you had when you were 250lbs and exercising as when you are 190lbs and not exercising. Anyone who gains weight after losing it bears sole responsibility for being a fatfuck.
>People who have gone shooting without hearing protection
>People who have used power tools without it
>People with big car stereos
>People who go to loud concerts and don't use plugs
All of the above apply to me
You know those fucktards that hear music with their headphones so loud that you can hear it in the entire subway? Or fuckers that go to concerts every week and never wear earplugs?
They are almost deaf by the age of 40.
why the fuck do shrinks this is some kind of cure-all? Every time I hear of someone suffering, in whatever way, they always either get told to take anti-depressants or start on a course of CBT. It's ridiculous. Exposure therapy on its own is a fucking joke; it just doesn't give you anything in the long term.
every day man. we're all gonna make it, right?
alright how it works is this
you want to have a diet that's low on calories but filling at the same time, this is why people recommend vegetables, because you can eat a fuckton of them and barely have any gain in calories
meat can do this too, because it's filling, and drinking a bunch of water also helps
you do cardio primarily to shave off extra calories that you normally wouldn't shave off during the day
My stepdad was kinda strange, but didn't call me a name, ordered pizza whenever one of my friends came over.
Was kinda strict but still chill.
Did your dad jokingly call you Fuckface?

Let me ask you something, if you're here in Murika have you tried dating today's women? Because I have. Drugs and sex is what it all boils down to. I have to many horror stories to tell. Hell, one bitch my friend set me up with pushed an autistic kid at the zoo because he couldn't see the fishes. In general everyone needs a major attitude adjustment.
How can you tell if you have tinnitus or not? When there is no sound at all I hear a slight weird sound in my ear.
It's too late for me. I have no motivation and I'm already 25 years old. Only 5 years away from being a wizard!
This. I never understood why the volume controls go up so high on most stuff.

jesus, i just watched this, what the fuck, what a fucking cunt.
people just need to step up and understand, life doesn't mean shit. there is no point. no end goal. it's just a series of events, that are what you make them.
if he's happy playing fucking guitar good for him, fuck you for trying to take his fucking happiness.
Use a calorie counting smartphone app and measure all your food. At a 500 calorie a day deficit you could be down to around 220 in a year. You will have a marked increase in energy, you will probably gain at least an inch of penis that was shrouded in pelvic fat and you will not receive the harsh stares and instant branding of "typical walmart shopper" everywhere you go.
And fuck off about the statistics they're skewed by the fact that most fat people have no self control.
no pls,i JUST finished fapping my dick is numb
>still being below the pro gamer level

>Can't hear the actual song due to hearing damage
I bring earplugs to concerts.
It's nice going for a jog everyday in the early morning though. Makes me feel refreshed.
By the way this isn't vidya.
My problem with bodyweight exercise is basically lazyness and lack of stamina (I want to do everything perfectly right away, which I obviously can't)
I'm thinking of buying a bike, actually. I already run on occasion, but I like doing it with my friends better than doing it alone, and since they're almost all lazy cunts I can never get them to do it.
It's one of the problems, but not the only one.
You just need your mum to kick you out, will do you a world of good.
Humans instincts want them to survive, and for now, your best bet of survival is staying at home. If that was gone, suddenly that minimum wage job at the warehouse is a lot more appealing.
And there are ALWAYS potential jobs, people who think otherwise are kidding themselves or consider themselves 'too good' to do anything that takes the slightest bit of effort.
At least talk to your mum, dont just live there and never interact, not saying you do or anything, but I imagine a lot of people in similar situations keep to themselves too much. Give her a hug and kiss now!
Fuck I give advice on this site too much lol, you really all cant be that bad? I would help you if I knew you anon, but I dont, and for some fucking reason I care, likely because I was in the same situation as you before I kicked myself in to gear (much younger than 27, I moved out at 20). Or maybe it is because we are both on /v/ so kindred spirits or something.
>tfw you can't sleep at night due to the ringing
>tfw you have to turn up the headphones even louder to get rid of ringing thus making the ringing even louder in the long run
You two are similar to me, except I started telling my mum to fuck off and doing what I wanted anyway.
Can you recommend a good calorie counting app (Android)?
stop eating processed food.
all of it. stop. no more anything from a packet. nothing frozen.
no takeout. no fast food. no fucking mcdonalds.
NO SODA. jesus christ, just fucking dont. not even fucking diet.
stop snacking. cut it out.
buy smaller plates. have 1 plate. no more.
seriously, portion control is a huge part of being overweight.
eat until you're not hungry, not until you're full.
i'm you're hungry between meals, deal with it. you're meant to be hungry. you will not die if you wait until your next meal.
eat chicken breasts, no skin. eat lettuce. eat carrots and zuchinni and shit. don't add butter. carrots don't need fucking butter. good carrots are sweet and juicy. steam them fuckers, yum.
since you're eating less, and buying less food, buy good food. organic where possible, natural, etc.
park at the back of the parking lot. put your cart away at the front of the store.
take the stairs.
look for free exercise like this.
you'll be healthier.
I can hear the song fine at any volume, but it's impossible to actually "feel" the bass/beat unless it's set at a higher than average volume. Listening to music quietly isn't nearly as hype as listening to it loudly, nerd.
Have you considered the possibility of you having overly sensitive eardrums like a little sissyboy?
first time i did that routine i just scrapped through 2 sets. at the end of the month i could do 3, still struggling a little with push ups.
if you want to do it, do it.
if you don't, that's fine too, but fucking own it, and stop pretending.
I think one of my biggest problems is me and my friends drink together almost every night. So every night I have 12-14 beers and those calories add up. It's my only social time though.
pretty much, we used to just smoke weed and get up to all kinds of shit, I don't know what happened, I still see them around at times but they never specifically invite me to see them, i've even asked them to tell me the next time they do something but they never did, I guess it's time to just stop bothering and live the vidya and animu life 24/7
Just because she's annoying doesn't mean she's wrong, OP.
Try to do a little thing outside everyday.
Then commit to something, 1 hour a day (gym, jogging, running, w/e)
I've been seeing a nutritionist and doing regular exercises. Feels much guder.
I'll listen to music at a loud volume when I'm hanging out with friends or if I need a quick burst of energy. I appreciate the treble more than the bass, so I don't need to ruin my hearing just because "DA BASS". No matter how hardened your ear drums are, listening to music at a very high volume will damage your ears. Consequently, I'd like to actually be able to appreciate my music when I'm past age 40 instead of going deaf like you will.
jesus christ that sounds fucking retarded what the fuck are you doing, it's like you want your liver to rot out or some shit.
quit drinking for a month.
if this is hard, you have a problem, and need to seek help for that separately.
your tolerance will lesson, and you can enjoy 2-3 beers instead of 12.
if you and your buddies can only have fun shitfaced, then you need better friends.
alternatively, vodka. low cal, high alcohol. your pick, i'm not your fucking mother.
I work in a Taco Bell/KFC. I'm constantly running around making orders, in 88° building with seemingly no air condition. It's really all I need.
Similar story but in reverse, then back again.

Now moved out got my own place and my parents always invite me round all the damn time.
... Yeah, Maybe I do.
>wanting to live past the age of 40 in this day and age
But in all seriousness, I don't listen to music at a loud volume all the time, that would just give me a permanent headache. It's way more fun when it's loud, however.
>tfw that wild kid at the kindergarten broke my ears
>Always thought that ringing was normal
Didn't even bother me until it came up in school. Then I bought a loud motorcycle and wore ear buds which didn't quite fit. Ringing isn't even close to the hell that is unequal ears.

We're all gonna make it brah.
Is it pronounced "net" or "neat" then? NEET is obviously "neat"
My dad was sort of like that except he was very ineffectual at it. Eventually he'd just buy himself and me food before going on about how he thought something was strange about my girlfriend. Then when we brokeup he'd ask why I'm not in another relationship.
Then he'd tell me he doesn't care what else I do so long as I respect the British Empire I am not fucking kidding he's like 77 and I'm 23.
I'm the youngest in a big family and the only person who really gets onto me about anything in a weird and contradictory way is my older brother.
>in the humid sticky heat where you feel dizzy and unable to concentrate and your body feels like its burning from the humidity

That said, autumn can't come soon enough.
It's beautiful here all summer and I still can't be bothered to go /out/ most of the time.
I have on and off tinnitus cause of shooting guns but I know the hell if uneven ears cause my left ear is slightly smaller than my right so I have to wiggle the earbud around till u get the sweet spot
Yeah well I live in NYC so all I can do is live vicariously through gorgeous nature pics
>you will never visit the Alps
Starting to look like a bit of a curlbro, so I need to work on legs and calves more. Did some calf raise supersets about 5 days ago and I still can't walk now, so it's gonna be a bitch.
Pretty sums up how I feel about it too
Gym buddy is 95kg and built like batman, can be pretty demotivating doing sets with him when he's bench pressing with 120lb dumbells and then I go for my set and use the 60lb ones.
Just gotta laugh about it for now though. Progress is progress
