I'd say yes but tumblr have probably invented a new one to label me with in the time it took for me to write this so I'll go with no.

Don't judge your life by Tumblr. Judge it by Pinterest.

And don't forget the online gaming community. I'm very much biased against silenced players who hover dps as a last pick in a tank or healer-less comp in MOBAS.

...I really want to forget, though. I don't play MOBA games, but that crap is endemic. Everyone wants to deep that ass, but blame the healer and tank when things go to shit because of it.

I keep lowering my expectations of men and yet so many seem determined to disappoint me.

The key is to have no real expectations of anyone at all. That way you can just accept people as they are, and enjoy their weird soul stink.

Why yes. I hate liberals, minorities, muslims, communists, obama, clinton, and anyone different from myself.

And I'm damn proud of it.

It's pretty damn near impossible to be completely free of biases.

Statisticians and pollers know this well. You won't believe how expensive it can be to minimize the possible biases when taking polls, especially regarding things like socioeconomic class.

I thought you were nice.


But to be clear: I'm not a misandrist nor do I think all white people are bad

Unfortunately I have a seriously bad habit of having standards for people I associate with. I'm much too young and foolish to accept things as they are.

Alright fine lets do this slowly:

1) Nobody will truly look out for you at the end of the day if you want something done you got to do it yourself.
2) Looking out for yourself, because no one will do the same for you and if they do you're not living your life.
3) This is what my parents taught me, A lesson that i still try to incorporate and live up to.


Well that is a truly depressing viewpoint and a utterly wrong one as far as I am concerned. It does explain why you are too jaded to see any positives to a truly selfless attitude though. And as a side note your parents were terrible people if that was the lesson they taught you.

Student B calls up Student A again for help on even more studies Student A declined because he has his own studies to take care of. Now does that make Student A an asshole for looking out for himself? No it doesn't because he has to pass and take care of his own shit.





As for this is a piss poor way of supporting your jaded viewpoint. If Student A was truly in a position to offer his help to Student B that means a) he either has enough free time that he can make up his own studies later or b) He finds the subject matter easy enough to understand that a grinding study session(s) are not needed for him. If neither of these conditions are true Student A would not been helping Student B or he wouldn't if he had an gram of sense.

LOL. The fact that you can't see the bias there is hilarious to me, but keep on going with this whole 'holier-than-thou I'm in the military so I'm better than the common man' shtick. Anybody who can't admit their own faults has no chance of ever fixing them.


I am not as you put it holier then thou because I serve in the CAF. I am "holier then thou" because I serve period. Military service is not the only kind of service I respect. Doctors, Teachers, Police Officers, hell even some politicians have my respect. This is because they are helping people and trying to make the world around them a better place.

However I have no respect for people like you who offer nothing but snark and criticism. And I have no respect for those who do nothing to make the world a better place. And I have nothing but contempt for those who expect the world to do everything for them. If that is bias so be it, it is better then the alternative.

How is my viewpoint jaded you fucking prick? No Student A has taken the classes that Student B has taken before so therefore has more experience to help out a fellow student. But Student A only agreed to the conditions out of sense of charity, time to help and sufficient knowledge. The next time Student B asked for helped Student A declined because he needs to study for his exams which he has a firm grasp but needs reinforcement on both knowledge and confidence. AND HOW IS THIS A JADED EXAMPLE? JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE HAS A GOOD GRASP THEY DON'T NEED TO STUDY PRIOR TO AN EXAM? THAT'S ONLY FOR A HANDFUL OF PEOPLE NOT EVERYONE IS A GENIUS AND NOT EVERY PERSON HELPING ONE ANOTHER TO STUDY IS A GENIUS.

You are intentionally being obtuse, belligerent and you are being disingenuous in order to support your arguments we are done you can go fuck yourself you don't get to assume anything about me.
