    My short rant.

    Post by Kyōkai on Sun Feb 03, 2013 10:50 pm

    Every day I make a supposedly countless number of references and parodies and only, like, 1 guy who's in my class at school understands approximately 2% of them.

    sad

    Although of course I am only referring to the times when I'm NOT on the internet.

    Whyyyyyyyyyyyy?

    I use the simplest of internet jargon when around people I know and it seems as if I am talking to the wind. Where I live, you're lucky if you know how to go to a website other than facebook or YouTube.

    Cool your jets Wedge, I know how you feel!

    All these nerf herders rarely get my super cool references!

    It's like I'm just a Dark Force lost in space talking to itself.

    it's probably because you're the only one that likes whatever you're making a reference of.

    I make Dark Souls references every once and a while. It's like I'm speaking Mandarin to them sometimes. It's even worse when I make a reference to the internet, I just get weird looks all the time.

    In some cases, probably, but even when you see me make a reference to let's say, "School Days", a series I really, and I mean REALLY, dislike, nobody gets it either. Although most of the times it's as if I'm speaking in Japanese. Wait no, I actually do, sometimes, but you get the point. Doesn't even have to do with liking something or not.

    >nice boat
    >lol nope


    And I had originally thought some people would get even the most basic and mainstream memes, but apparently not.

    Ah, I guess I'm just LOSING MY HEAD.

    A lot of popular memes get heard of by say, 10 million people.

    There are around 8 billion people on the planet.

    Do the math. silly

    Obviously the only way I can be accepted in this society is if we are to decrease the overall human population dramatically.
    Or I could just stop referencing my addiction to Green Blossom all the time.

    Sometimes it doesn't even have to be a meme or some series that you've probably never heard of before.

    I mean, who doesn't love Edgar Allan Poe and/or apple turnovers?

    Or I could just stop referencing my addiction to Green Blossom all the time.

    You're dead to me!

    And are now a force ghost!

    So it's pretty much that you are a person, but this strange figure which I can't physically interact with.

    AKA, a forum buddy.

    It's just like me with regards to all those new music sensations of the day. I know their names - for the most part - and I know they are enjoying high levels of popularity but I'll be damned if I can even name one of their songs.

    Looking at you Bieber and Adele...

    YOLO = You only live once.

    It's actually a very inspirational quote if worded right. Unfortunately some young artist that I don't care for introduced it as an excuse for doing incredibly stupid things.

    I'm so glad you used the image of the right force ghosts, not anyone younger with an douche haircut that was written by an idiot.

    When I was surfing the internet for images I almost grabbed the wrong one, but then I realized that image wasn't in the original movie.

    Sometimes the internet makes me hate people.

    I find that it depends on the way you look at it. Again most people look at it as a way of explaining their incredibly stupid actions. I don't, I look at it as a way of actually making some use of my life rather than wasting it away by doing nothing but self indulging things.

    It can help certain people to move on with their lives and make something of themselves, but at the same time if you were to introduce the concept to an immature individual the idea quickly loses it's credibility and sometimes, original meaning.
