Message from Matthias in Nice Respectable People Group #general
Why are kids bored nowadays?
We are in the thick of it boys
I played with sticks and threw rocks at snakes when I was a kid
No community, phones, no racial awareness...
Because we shipped all factory jobs overseas duh
Phones are a curse...smart phones that is
I had an action figure that was Skeletor from He-man that I played with.
Kids are so comfortable, nihilistic and complacent they are doing the dumbest things just to feel alive. Or...our IQ has dropped so far in a generation or 2 that we are doomed. 😃
Well from what Ive seen so far its more of the diverse groups of people who seem to be attempting these stunts.
Yes, smart phones and "social" media, are destroying our children and their ability to actually have meaningful, irl relationships.
White pill. 😃
One lady said, these challenges are usually attempted with water close by
They, um ...*cough*...lesser IQ'd... individuals
See, I called it before he even said it!
I just cant believe this is something people are doing. It really shows you how we are on the same planet but were not on the same planet.
Is it really hard to believe anymore?
Is anything hard to believe anymore?
I'd wager phones themselves are generally ok if introduced in the teenage years. It depends on the content. Snapchat, etc and many apps are cursed in terms of what they promote to the user and the mechanics of the interactions.
But I'm not a parent.
Everytime I think clown world has peaked another small car drives up and 10 more clowns pop out
Phones and technology is something that worries me about being a parent, even though I have a while before I ever really have to worry about it
I just want a simple life. A house in the middle of no-where, some kids and a wife, and some books to read.
I only have the wife currently
I figured :p
Trying to get our own place currently, and more secure work.
What do you currently do?
Web design and video editing.
Interesting. For a company or independently?
I work for a guy who does it independantly.
It's like a paid apprenticeship.
Neat. Do you want to continue in this field?
I do. He works from home and most of the time I do to. The money is good and the work is plenty. I'd love to work from home and my wife not have to work.
But you’d like the work to be more “secure.” What would that entail?
Just me knowing what I need to know and having the connections to ensure consistant work.
And If I work at home I can be more active on IE 😃
