21256 Exhibitionists
I am concerned that the world is becoming more and more exhibitionistic in the worst possible way. Any idiot with a popular enough blog/twitter/YouTube can suddenly become an over night expert in the eyes of increasingly lazy and stupid journalists who in turn feed thesencretins to the masses.

Then there is the over sharing people do on social media. Posting about your wedding is fine to a point, but a week of new fucking updates AND new albums from the same event ever day!

My neighbours also had loud sex which irked me more than it should have.

Excellent and true description. I used it for about a year before, hopefully, quitting forever. The word 'used' does imply the subtly addictive qualities.

My friends list featured some fairly high profile writers, artists, and musicians I know, and guess what? They are all acting like exhibitionist teenage halfwits too. They are all calling out their partners, blatantly hitting on attached people, posting fucking selfies or pics of their horrible kids or dinners, getting catty and passive aggressive with their best mates, threatening to end it all or posting direct threats of violence drunkenly. It might be good for people who are housebound or live a long way away from their IRL mates but it's a madhouse and I've heard even worse things about twitter.

Well that's just sad.

Interestingly there has been a rise in this stuff though, now that the internet is much more widely used. It's called Online Disinhibition Effect. What I think we're seeing more of now though, is it bleeding from the online world into the real one, as pretty much everyone is using the internet now. It's too easy for people to dissociate themselves and just view things as a game. But this can in fact breed a low EQ in people if they're online for a vast majority of their time everyday and not interacting often with others. More so with kids now growing up with the internet being a major factor in their lives. People will fall into two groups generally. The ones that are just disconnected/have a low EQ and people who genuinely have some kind of disorder. You can see this in a lot of things now, though. It's pretty interesting but also somewhat worrying.

Personally I'm not a cunt and don't require people to be suffering for my entertainment, but hey-ho.

20666 Skip this if you don't want to read me bitch about inane shit.
I had contemplated putting this in /emo/, but I don't think I need advice really. I just want to vent and get your opinions. I'll try and be objective.

Anyway, my best mate is getting divorced. "Pretty common." I hear you think, which is true. This woman is twisted though and orchestrated this, I feel.

They were having problems, she clearly wasn't happy for reasons still unclear to my mate and he (oblivious) was getting more and more wound up by her behaviour, because she was deliberately trying to bait him into losing the head over a period of months. So one day he does. He comes home a few hours late from the pub where he was having a couple drinks for his Dad's birthday, after buying her a chippy on route to make up for it, and she accuses him of cheating so he snaps, goes volcanic with rage, and bounces his fish supper off her face and calls her all sorts of names.

This is very bad, I do not condone this.

Queue 4 months later, she has left him because he has "changed" and she didn't love him any more, despite sleeping with him up until the day she fucked off. He is myopic at this stage, distraught, ashamed, can't sleep and can't eat. She is taunting him with guys she is dating, manipulating him and threatening him with their kids. She is a gale force cunt, at this point, in my eyes. His best friends, me and another lass (who he cheated on her with, according to her) build him back up. Get him back out in the world, get him to make her sign a joint custody agreement using Child Tax Credits as leverage.

He goes out, meets a girl. That's fine, things are looking up for him. They agree to go on a date. He fucking tells his ex-wife this, which was stupid, but I understand why he did it; turn about is fair play, etc. She is now livid. LIVID! Starts calling him names, going apeshit, accusing him of trying to replace her in the kids lives by having her "play mother to the kids", full blown meltdown material. They haven't even gone on this date yet, never mind her set foot in his house.

She was the one that left him, she created an opportunity to do that and she left. I don't understand why, but she did. He moped and pined for her for months and we had to drag him out the house, he was depressed over what had happened with fishsuppergate and we had him go to counseling over it. If she wanted him back at any stage during that time she could have had him back. She has no right to give him shit for moving on with his life, when within a week of taking her ring off she was bed hopping and getting pissed every night, smelling of booze when he was picking the kids up from her new gaff.

I fucking hate this woman, lads. I don't want to, but I hate her. There is something seriously wrong with her and I can't for the life of me work out why she is such a horrible person. I've known her for years and I never knew she had this in her. To be fair, I didn't expect my mate to throw his dinner at her, but she has used this as a catalyst for divorce and proof he isn't the man she married. She has been browbeating him about cheating on her since the day they met. Something had to give, at least that is the way I see it, but she takes no responsibility for it.

I get what you're saying, but I think that the difference between news presentation then and now is remarkable. Part of that is technological, but there are also a lot of aesthetic decisions involved. Here's a randomly chosen news bulletin from last year:


We can see a drastic difference in tone almost immediately, with incessant motion and visual clutter. Throughout the programme, the language is notably more hyperbolic and there is a great deal more focus on opinion and personality.

The story on energy prices is opened with a human interest framing. The coverage of the teaching strike was dominated by the impact on parents rather than the issues behind the strike. An entire story was given over to public opinion on the EU. Parliament passing a cap on welfare spending merited just 15 seconds of coverage, while a celebrity divorce got two minutes.

I think it's informative to look at a news bulletin from 1997:

When youtube got big I thought things would change. People could watch what they want whenever they want and a lot of them created content. Then almost ten years later the most famous youtubers are girls with big breasts, girls who talk about make up, little dumb kids and guys who play video games while talking about playing video games. TV may be almost dead but it killed our taste long ago.

I thought that if I would just ignore all the nonsense from disreputable websites like 'The Mind Unleashed' it would eventually die of its own accord but if anything it appears to be getting stronger. Has anyone else noticed this or is it a consequence of the booster jabs I had the other day?

Its not just that children have already died from the vaccine conspiracy but I innocently clicked one of those links that got shared and read the comments, it was as you might imagine full of asshats having a circle jerk wank over how much smarter (or more open-minded) they were to the sheeple. What is worse is that it seems to be a trend that is steadily creeping more into real life encounters whereas before people had the good sense to keep it online or at least in their circles.

The obvious answer would be to challenge this from friends sharing it on facebook but that doesn't really work when on social media egos are at stake. So yeah I dunno, maybe we should go back to using MSN.

Not sure if this warrants it's own thread, but I have a neighbour problem and it's turned into a rather serious one.

Basically, I live in a nice apartment complex, it's quiet, secluded and generally all the people living there are pleasant.

However, across from me lives a strange couple. A man, probably in his late 50s, maybe early 60s, with what appears his "wife" - a woman probably in her early 30s, young enough to be his daughter basically. She is Spanish speaking and I guess he can speak it too - and I only know this because of the frequent shouting fights the woman has with her husband. I sort of pick up bits here and there, and it sounds like nonsense, but the volume is ludicrous, to the point where if you have windows closed, you can easily pick up the screaming.

This has gone on and off for a about a year, and since it's summer, my windows are open constantly, and I have to listen to this bollox daily. But not only during the day, but night as well. For 3 days in a row, around 4 am, the bitch can be heard wailing like some kind of demented banshee, and last night was no exception, which her wailing some weird song.

I got fed up with it, and planned to write a strongly worded letter to them, I'm a pussy and I don't want confrontations, so anonymity is key. But I needed the apartment number to get it right. As I walked up to their side of the building, I bumped into one of their neighbours, a nice Columbian girl, whose expression dropped when I asked her about the noise.

Things are far more complicated than I first assumed, and it seems this crazy bitch is legitimately demented, when the Columbian girl had friends over, crazy bitch shouted curses at them, to which one of the Columbian girl's friends responded. Within 30 seconds, the crazy bitch ran down and tried to smash the door down. Obviously not letting her in the Columbian girl was reasonably shook up, but there have been several incidents where she would have the crazy bitch banging on her door at 6am.

So tl;dr, crazy neighbour bitch is disturbing the peace and threatening other people - is there a swift, permanent solution to this issue?

Cheers in advance.
