  1. My apologies if our rather combative exchanges in any way exacerbated this. But I will say this. While it's fairly evident that depression has a genetic component, an environmental component, and can occur after trauma, you do need to approach it as an episode of "what can I do to make my life better" - some of which may be a change in environment. But moreover you have to think long and hard about why you are in the rut you are in now, and what you can personally do to make it better. I know you're not going to fully agree with this, but entertain me for a second. I would say that the ideologies you have attached yourself to is not good for you at all, and may make your depression worse. Obviously you became attracted to it by what you were feeling yourself, but I think you have made your own state of mind worse by accepting its conclusions. If you think of everything as systemic, everything is already set in motion and you are just a small mouse within it - why do anything to change yourself if it's all structural? This kind of determinism is akin to being fatalistic. Here's the definition of wikipedia: "Fatalism generally refers to any of the following ideas: 1.The view that we are powerless to do anything other than what we actually do. Included in this is that man has no power to influence the future, or indeed, his own actions. This belief is very similar to predeterminism. 2. An attitude of resignation in the face of some future event or events which are thought to be inevitable. Friedrich Nietzsche named this idea with "Turkish fatalism" in his book The Wanderer and His Shadow. 3. That acceptance is appropriate, rather than resistance against inevitability. This belief is very similar to defeatism." Either way, the best way forward for your own mindset would be to think about what can you do to make a positive impact. How can you be productive? What makes you happy? What is a realistic way forward, step-by-step? Hang out with friends (positive ones, not one who bring you down). Moreover I think some of the messages you're listening to from your broad "Social Justice" ideologies are themselves coming from people with mental illnesses, whether that be people who are depressed, bipolar, or who have some kind of personality disorder like Narcissism PD or Borderline PD. Even if they're not, they are almost certain to contain very negativistic, very bleak, very dire views of the world. You really need to focus on more positive messages, or at the very least realistic ones. I'd slowly divest yourself from whatever sources of information that have these tendencies, and move to ones that tend to make you happier and more enlightened. I had to do that myself as I started to figure out that the progressive messages on places like dailykos were unbearably negativistic and whiny, as well as even entertaining the doomsday rhetoric from the exact opposite side of the spectrum - Austrian hyper-individualists (thanks, brother & sister-in-law!). Anyways, take care, get lots of sleep, start execising and building muscle, and start hitting on women (in person or online). That should also make you feel much, much better - make you more attractive and more confident. Good luck, you can pull through.

    "Weak" CBs

    Hey, this is essentially the same point that I made in like 3-4 sentences in the same post In any event, if El Salvador can go to war with Honduras over losing a soccer game, MK can go to war to "Save Dave93"

    Well......

    Great. I had Duke in the finals. Only put them there since they beat Mich St. earlier this year. Knew I should've gone with them.. I'll revert back to my usual $%&@ DUKEness, and this exactly why. Also, wtf Michigan? Poor Mizzou.. GO BADGERS!

    Analogies

    Yes. This is a great post, like a post that Aristole would have made!
  6. Gibsonator's been in GOD for a month+. Keep up. Same alliance, different AA.
  7. This is clearly a giant conspiracy.
  8. heh well, this is good n' all, but I wouldn't necessarily mind if he were to use his pixels instead against GOD. He'd be doing us a favor then. But, happy hunting TLR
  9. RIP. He was by far the NDP's most successful party leader, and left the party in its absolute best shape it's been in. A good guy, too.
  10. This is a very bad hypothetical. You should both instead fight together against SF or Fark
  11. A really tough call, and I was tempted to first go with NEW, but after looking at their wonders, NoR has a slightly better count of WRCs/SDIs/MPs. So I've gotta give it to NoR since most other things are near-equal.
  12. My remark was aimed at RV, not NSO, but your response raises another point: RV's moralism (for want of a better word) has previously been a distinguishing characteristic of his posts, and one associated with NSO (including via The Moldavi Doctrine). More recently, however, it seems that he is more interested in using his moralist platform as a justification for prosecuting old grudges, which is really no different to all the other posters out there, or to other alliances (particularly Xiph and GOD, ironically). It's also not like this isn't anything new RV has done. Do you recall RV's thread several months back: "Why is SuperFriends so terrible?". Yeah. RV along with the rest of NSO have thought that SuperFriends are terrible for a long time running now. So yeah. SF deserves to be rolled. And yeah, it does seem though like you guys have turned against us after the Legion stuff, but c'est la vie.
  13. it's because you're big, warm and fluffy.
