I'm glad they believed in an afterlife, because it probably made their time in hell more bearable.

But the much more likely result, that their existence was just snuffed out forever, is something I feel we need to understand.

Our time on earth is the only time any of us ever have. Once it's gone, it's gone.

The lives lost in any war, or for whatever reason, are not reborn in heaven or hell, or anything in between.

They just don't live anymore

oh wow you KNOW there's no afterlife, holy shit, someone contact the pope so we can make sure everyone knows that one jackass on the internet knows for certain there's nothing after life and we can wrap up the whole religion thing once and for all

The bottom of this thread is even more cancerous than the /r/pics thread.

According to the detectives below, the shooter was an autistic MK ULTRA operative.

what the fuck is mk ultra?

Phylliida 10 points

It actually is real, it’s a project the CIA did in 1950-1970 to try to figure out a way of using LSD or related drugs to mind control people. However it failed and years later it was finally declassified

Rockah12 3 points

I feel like giving people LSD would make them harder to mind control.

Maybe dad knows you aren't his...

Rockah12 1 point

He had a DNA test done shortly after I was born, with it being, if my memory serves me well, 99.999995% match.
Maybe I should go and get a new one done... That WAS back in 1998, maybe the DNA test is more accurate and we can either prove or disprove the first test.


Either way, sorry. Nice of his to stick around but even if you aren't his that's not your fault and you shouldn't be treated line dirt

Rockah12 1 point

I'm not treated like dirt in general, but he just always calls me a pussy if I try to talk to him about things that make me uncomfortable. For instance, I don't have a full driver's license yet. I've had my learner's license for four years. Reason being, the year I got my learner's, one of my friends died in a car accident. I've been apprehensive to drive since, but my dad for a while kept telling me to "man up" and start driving.
He stopped when my niece passed away last year, also in a car accident, but I'm still not going to talk to him about my insecurities. I'd rather not be belittled for what I'm afraid of, what makes me uncomfortable, or things about myself I'm not entirely sure about. I'll stick to talking to my mom, grandmother, and therapist.

Well imagine if you get what you want and it’s too much.

Saw a foo fighters concert after getting some drinks and the stadium apparently doesn’t sell alcohol because it is the city college arena.

Four hours later Dave is still going strong.

Keeps saying they can go all night

Sobriety has taken hold and you can’t keep your eyes open

Every hit has an extended 10 minute solo added on

Dave still saying we ain’t done yet after every song

All I want is Dave to be done

Mama didn’t raise no quitter but Christ Dave, just let me go home

By the way shout out to u/totallynotdavegrohl for putting on a rad show in Madison this last August.

But real talk my dude, where is the beer at???

Rockah12 1 point

This reminds me of my first (and so far only) concert. It was the 9:30 Club in D.C., with Boris as the main band and opening for them was Earth. Boris was doing this Pink tour where, instead of just playing whatever, they played the album Pink (my second favorite album of theirs, after Flood) in its entirety. So, after the last song, I was like "Alright cool I'll wait by the entrance for my ride, since they're still in the crowd."
I swear to god the encore was like twice as long as the actual set. I can't confirm this but goddamn it was fucking amazing.
My only regret from that show is accidentally buying a girls' shirt instead of a guys' shirt. It fits me, too, it just doesn't look good on me...

IIRC agnosticism is the belief that we will never know if a god exists. The only real way to find out is to die and at that point it's too late to do anything about it and you can't tell everyone else the answer.

Rockah12 2 points

I care, because I do want there to be an afterlife and hope there is, but I don't know. The only thing to do is to be a good person until I die and hope for the best.
Guess that makes me agnostic, not apatheist.

And to love your neighbor as yourself.

How do you love your neighbor when he plays loud rock music 04.00 in the morning and you have to get up to work in 3 hours?

Rockah12 1 point

Depends on what kind of rock music. We talking Def Leppard rock, Nirvana rock, Sonic Youth rock, Highly Suspect rock, or Imagine Dragons "rock"?
there are other kinds these are just the ones i came up with at the moment

So alcohol kills two well known celebrities in the same week. Time for me to stop drinking.

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred…minus one day so I never have to live without you.”

A.A. Milne

Rockah12 1 point

Milne's work has always been a staple of my life. I watched The Many Adventures Of Winnie-The-Pooh religiously as a child, had VHS tapes and DVDs of the various other films and some of the TV show, read the books often... But this quote has stuck with me. With certain... Recent events, I've had to come to terms that I'm going to outlive someone very close to me. Several people, and not all of them many years older than me. I want to be by their side to the very end.
I want to be the one hundred to their one hundred minus one day. I love these people dearly and want them all to feel loved to the very end. I'll endure a life without them if it means we can be together until the end of theirs.

Also Pinkerton

Rockah12 1 point

ehhhhhh Across The Sea skeeves me out too much, which is a shame because aside from that Pinkerton is leagues ahead of Blue Album.

thedick009 5 points

I love Across the Sea, I think it's actually kind of beautifully sad. It's not about him being in love with some 18 year old girl he's never met, it's about him realizing that he doesn't really know what love is, as evidenced by the realization that admiration from some stranger halfway around the world is the closest relationship to another person he's ever had. He's suddenly this huge famous rock star with all these girls wanting him, but he's still an awkward guy who can't connect with people. The song, and really the whole album, deals with this sort of contradictory isolation that he feels. I mean I get it, there are definitely some skeevy overtones, but I think it's all very surface level, and the point he's actually trying to express is very different. But that's just my personal interpretation

Rockah12 2 points

...Holy shit. Yeah I just... I guess I only really looked skin-deep at the song. That interpretation makes it a lot easier to swallow and sort of... Fit better into the overall themes of the album.
goddammit it's 4:38 am i need to sleep but i gotta listen to pinkerton again aaaaaaaaagh

I had no IDEA this is how Hoppy got hired! That's funny as fuck. She was amazing, I loved her while she worked there. Senior pranks made a comeback but were kinda lame while I was there. Hoppy retired after my senior year, apparently she's raising goats in Colorado now.

I know a girl who is named "Brihhanha" or some shit like that.

Edit: It's spelled more like "Brihyyana" but the principle is still the same. Idk the exact spelling, that's how messed up it is.

I read that as "Benihana". My brain is fucking fried today.

I'm currently living with my parents and I started capturing videos of them recently. One of my mom telling me a story that I have heard a million times but I love to see her mannerisms and expressions when she tells it. I have another of her cooking an ethnic meal I love. I recorded my dad working on his car and whistling the same tune he has whistled for decades.

I was a baby when my maternal grandparents died and I never met my paternal grandmother. I would have loved to have seen videos of them so I could have better pictured the stories my parents told me. I'm making sure that my kids (and nieces and nephews) at least have that. We all have smartphones. It's never been easier to capture memories.

Rockah12 5 points

I turn 21 next year, and I'm planning on starting a new tradition then. I'm going to be recording a video talking to important people in my life and telling them how much they mean to me and how much I love them, talking about various fun stories from that year, sharing memories, stuff like that. Have it play at my funeral.
I want something people can remember me by, and remember me as I was. Cracking jokes, being a smartass, rambling about music and movies, telling people I love them too much... I don't want the people I love to just see me as a body in a casket when I die.

I love how the internet's latched onto the squirrel so much that there are now like fanfics where Merlin turns her human simply so that she can have a happy ending and be with Arthur.
