Re:Optimus - a whole world out there!

category: general [glöplog]
To Optimus. Hope you get the sentiment. This isn't posted with malice, just a bit of advice.

"If you can dream - and not make dreams your master,
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same:
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken,
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop aand build 'em up with worn-out tools,

...................

And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!"

There is a whole world out there, just waiting for you to discover. Go get it! Stop wasting ALL your time here.
Oh,. not again with those wannabe getalife advices!

Do you know these news are old for me? Go out, take some air, get a life, get a girl, grow up? Do you think walking in a predefined straight line is what I want from life? All of you people, are always telling me the same thing, but it's what you learned, what everyone says. I don't say if it's right or wrong, I don't even care about that actually, all I want to say is that I don't need to hear what you say anymore, since it doesn't help me! It's always the same. If it was so simple the way you say, would I stay here now? Afteralls I find the answers alone, lately I found that I just don't have to care about any shit and just be content with myself. Yesterday, I did what I did, but I was not unhappy that I lost my life or anything. I just had that rare feeling that I can kill some time without caring at all..

A more thoughtfull and organised portion of the above thoughts will be released later, perhaps the day I will leave Pouet and the demoscene alone. I can't wait that moment. But now I don't care, because I found what I want, the way to go. I don't need to get a life. This phrase was the biggest lie! We are all mice moving in a predefined maze with pieces of cheese at their corners. The mice who eat the most cheese, believe that they are happy, but is it so? As predefined the meaning of life is, that people of this society wants to define. As perfectly "normal" you have to be, in order to feel well inside this society. A lie!!!

P.S. You think a piece of poetry will make me wake up from that so called false dream? Afteralls, I could never understand poetry.. :P

A bag of bollocks, that's what this is. Very typical for people who have failed at just about anything they have ever tried to do, to claim that it is all society's fault for not understanding their "divine state of inner happiness". It is the same kind of bollocks that some people say when referring to wealth : I dont want to be rich, see how miserable they are... (and then spend half of their lives trying to become wealthy).

Same for the misogynies (like optimus), same for the lamers in demoscene (like optimus), same for the qbasic 'programmers' (like optimus) and so on...

Optimus is the unoffical pouet mascot. Just imagine how empty his place would be without his random posts. ;)

Optimus: Please don't take all these things as insults. I don't believe you should be going out to clubs or drinking until you puke if that's not your thing. That's what society expects but it doesn't suit some people.
And let's face it, those people are usually bigger losers than any computer nerd Ive met. What sort of moron thinks it's cool to act like a retard in public, foul themselves and wake up the next day to remember none of it?

BUT counting your posts and adding up your time spent on pouet is doing nobody any favours and is one of those things you will look back at and think "that was pointless" or worse, other people will think the same.

Read, study, work out, draw, compose, code, write etc because these things will have long term benefits and in time to come you will see that it was time well spent for YOU not for society.

Jeez - didn't think this would draw so much attention.

Wish i'd started with Ultimate Gas's post instead of 'If' now! It was reading the whole '8 squillion posts, 40 billion replies, 8 trillion threads' thing that got me started.

Do your own thing - there's nothing worse than a conformer - but keep the anoraking to a minimum and you'll be much better off!

Seriously, no offense intended Optimus.
okkie said it all. lives are for wussies.

zafos: Now that's strange. Some people say to me that my english rules, others that my english suxx..

linkt: "if he becomes 70 years old and so on..". Now that's another predictable pharse, heared from millions of getalifeists, who don't even know me.

Gimme a break! Do you know what I'll be doing after even 10 years? I don't even know. Perhaps Pouet will have shared me a bunch of good fun and then I'll get some kind of a nice life :)

This is shit! One person told me "You will be 40 years old (I don't need to reach 70 to understand ;) and wonder what the hell I was doing with my life all this time. And then he told me something like "You should grab the life from it's horns and suck it". That's what I do but in a diferrent way. I love some moments (yeah, even like this!) and it's enough for me. It's not that much what I need anyways. And life is not so important. I could die and be born again as a supposly "cool" person :P Or if I am not born once more, I won't even know that. If I know it, there is eternity, I can do whatever I have supposly lost to your own view, in other lifes. It's not important. If what I am doing is not the right thing, then wouldn't I know that? Why do people oppress me to go to the directions they think as right? What do they know about me?

I should hear Ultimate Gas thoughts for today and vanish from Pouet and the demoscene, sooner or later.

Oh,. and also, nothing is pointless. I didn't found my post yesterday pointless. Nor my time spend. We "loose" time in million other things. Nothing matters for me. If I had to think "Oh,. shit! I lost one more hour from my life, how miserable I am!" then shit inside..

I am trying to go away from all these.
And I love seeing your predictable answers and replying in a witty way.

I wish I could show some facts to the world. But I guess they are just not ready yet..

zafos: Afteralls, I don't think it sounds much diferrent than all my other texts. People could easilly find flaws in it to blame me..

No offense sammi curr. I just have something to tell to people. A Capricorn self who once wanted to change the world, he had an alternative vision of it. But it seems that I can't help it, not even myself, but I am just proud of still keeping this alternative vision that not even one person I know seems to have it. And also a bit hot these days..
added on the 2003-10-26 12:11:46 by Optimus Optimus
I wanted to say: Or I am also a bit hot these days.

P.S. I want to make some enemies as soon as possible, so that I can be a nice spot at mudfighting that will be organized at TUM =)

Of course that's a joke. In "reality" :-)>, I love you all ;)

Scheisse, say something more to entertain me! It's just that 3 minutes are left, in this coin-internetcafe.
