            lol, I don't know who my birth father is but my mother's family was good Irish and French Canadian stock. My 100% Irish grandfather was an actor in the 50s and 60s who often played the lead or something close to it so to say I look inbred is pretty fricking stupid. I come from some of the most desirable human beings on the planet. Cope and seethe some more.

        99% sure these three were posted by RJC himself in an effort to get attention for himself and fuel his narcissism. Pathetic. You have a dead-eyed soulless stare and a negative canthal tilt, by the way.

            Seriously doubt that this is a coincidence. If anyone here is a tech illiterate homosexual it's you, considering that you LARPed as one of your haters and faceposted for attention without even having the common sense to pick publicly available photos or change the filenames and cover your tracks.

            Just for the sake of pointing this out. A reaction like this when you've been accused of samegayging pictures of yourself for attention is a HUGE giveaway of narcissism. It's completely textbook, in fact; shame and attack your accusers, don't acknowledge their accusations.

      Before I became a father I was knee-deep in pussy, so much so that I wrote my 1st book about getting too much pussy and being depressed that no relationships ever panned out because there was so much endless pussy.

      A big part of that, I discovered after having kids, is the anti-natalist culture I grew up in.

            Now he's an "author", before he was an "actor" and before that a "musician". Never just himself, and failing, always failing.

    No, we're not doing this again. Last thread it was already clear there was zero discussion of the new issue. 019 has had its discussion, and now the troll(s) will just copy-paste the threads over and over. Only fake drama, which is now wholly shifted to RJC, though not about his pieces in &amp or anything substantial about his book. Add some “Jason”-schizoing in the mix, and bam! we have a totally unpalatable thread.

        &amp issue releases have always been content with one thread more or less up to the limit, but after that ppl have said about all they have to say, and that's enough for that issue.

            Okay, this is going to come across extremely narcissistic, but I don't give a frick:

            1. Why do we play professional athletes 8+ figures a year to play a child's game?

            The other day I noticed some Toronto Maple Leaf player got an $84 million dollar contract to slap a rubber puck into a net. I started asking myself, wouldn't most people see that person as being extremely valuable, but for what? For low brow, physical entertainment? How does this person earn millions of dollars doing this?

            Meanwhile, we have real problems in society, many of them. Birth rates plummeting, housing crisis, hospital crisis, drug crisis, and a near total lack of leadership and innovative minds to fix it. Naturally, being the insane masochist I am, I spent a lot of time I shouldn't been writing or finding a part-time job meditating on these ideas and what it would take to fix anything. Well, you'd essentially need a National Solutions League, or the NSL, which would keep a scoreboard for positive contributions to society, like how many people you've married, how many children you've had, how many people you've helped off the street, how much housing you've built without making any profit, how many unique innovations you've provided to Canada. Then the country could come up with ways to fund it similar to the budgets of the NHL, but instead of people rising up and making $84+ million on some contract to play a sport, they'd bid on and win bigger and bigger contracts to solve issues.

            For example, if we really had visionaries to lead society in a better direction, it would not be difficult to supply pod-type housing that would give people a very basic, heated and cooled living space. The reason why the NSL could not exist is because of the need to profit and keep society in a financial prison. The goal is, was, and never will be to lower costs for goods, make living easier, or to innovate to "make things better", but the goal instead has been to consolidate capital with the aid of government. The government doesn't want capital spread out among the people, it wants more of a oligarch system where the people work for the government and corporations. It's working, too.

            Problems are not meant to be solved, but maintained, to the benefit of everyone who thinks inside-the-box. Imagine if you just focused in the last 10 years in buying up as much property and AirBNBs you could've, instead of writing or working on anything else. You'd have ridden a wave of immigration and money printing to riches! The wealthiest people I've met have like 50+ properties on AirBNB and are now fabulously rich.

            Much is similar in the publishing world, as if you think inside-the-box you could probably come up with a pen identity and write the next POC queer love story and sell your book's film rights. Outside-the-box thinking may not get you very far.

            Anyone who has driven around B.C. is aware that we have a ton of space literally fricking everywhere.

            It would not take much to setup little communities of pods with hot showers, bathrooms, and a community outdoor kitchen. The "housing crisis" could be solved in a couple of ways, but the housing crisis is 100% intended to keep the status quo going. This is what has people like me sitting on the sidelines of society scratching our heads that other people can't see it. Or they refuse? I'm not sure, but clearly, many "problems" in society are called problems, but they're actually intended to keep the whole show going as promised, so everyone is keen to work their 9-5 job, watch sportsball, eat slop and repeat for 40+ years without questioning anything.

            Then any of us looking at society with an out-of-box mindset are looked at like the complete schizos we are, because certain patterns and beliefs in 2024 western nations are completely and totally verboten, even if they ARE recognizing patterns and seeing the correct way of the world.

            I suppose this is why I write, because it is the one things only slightly less useless than meditating on why none of the problems in modern life are meant to be fixed.

            Whenever you see the word "crisis" you should bear in mind that it's a solvable problem, artificially created.
            The housing "crisis" is due to massive immigration that the federal government knew would lead to housing shortages years ago. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/ircc-immigration-housing-canada-1.7080376?cmp=rss
            The hospital "crisis," same thing. Massive immigration with no increases in spending on services.
            The drug "crisis." We knew what would happen when BC legalized drugs, because the outcomes were already apparent in Portland. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2023/07/oregon-drug-decriminalization-results-overdoses/674733/
            We know what policies reverse the mass use of hard drugs because countries like the UAE and Singapore have successfully implemented them.
            You seem to think of these issues as organically manifesting, while a look at policy changes over time (e.g. bail reform) created these issues intentionally in the first place, and the solutions are found plain as day in other countries.
            The only way out is to make enough money to pay for private healthcare, buy your own home, and live in areas that don't have tent cities due to a lack of resources for junkies. Alternatively, have the means to leave the country. Writing about it won't change anything. All these issues have already been talked to death and you should focus on saving yourself and your loved ones.

            Well, yes, now that it is totally apparent and I've already alienated myself to 99% of the population by screaming "the suffering is intended", now I understand that there is no use fighting "the system" when it already has complete and total control.

            Even asking why sportsball dorks make such insane money playing a sport while the real problems of society have zero chance of being solved, how there are no actual real "benevolent billionaires" or even anyone with real power for that matter. We're in a "Universe 25" scenario where pointing out anything that is possibly bad or untrue is the worst option, COVID showed us just how foolish it is to resist the grand plan and how you will be crushed like a bug if you get in the way.

            I don't find fault in people who stuck to their convictions and ended up paying the ultimate price for standing up in the world full of hammers, there have been far braver people who have been disappeared for simply connecting the dots with their powers of autism and schizophrenia. I do find fault in others who haven't discussed the real issue we face in 2024:
            >where do we go from here?

            Essentially, they know, that we know, that they know that we know, so anytime you interact with this society, you have to act and think inside-the-box, because the areas outside-the-box are shrinking faster and faster.

            It does feel some days that our entire society went through a polite "mid air pilot swap" and then they started handing out the poisoned roast peanuts. The levels of destitution I've seen all over B.C. are only eclipsed by the luxury towers, the near-constant evocation of the D.I.E. dogma and the astroturfing of nearly all social movements and entertainment.

            >The fact that we've allowed things to go this far as a society calls into question our willingness and ability to course correct.

            People divided by identity are compelled to fight with each other for power instead of unitying against tyranny. Aristotle was pretty clear on this.
            >*The people in charge being a network distributed super-intelligence of global capitalists, intelligence agencies, and monarch wealth that work together in consensus with the ultimate goal being control over the entire planet
            It makes the most sense that people will only accept an erosion of their rights and independence if it's to solve a "crisis," e.g. the Patriot Act, so it's plausible that this is imposed economic and societal hardship where the "solution" will be further globalization via the unification of Canada, the USA and Mexico a la the EU. Nobody will stop it. They'll suffer a synthetic regression and then clap like seals once the people who did this to them promise to fix it with just at the cost of just a few liberties.

            I booked a meeting with my corporate diversity officer that our "diversity scholarship" is unethical as it denies poor students educational opportunites based on their race and gender (see: categorical imperative as an ethical standard, which is THE standard taught in business schools throughout western civilization). It took me an HOUR to convince her why doing so is fundamentally wrong. She then agreed with me and said she would raise it up to the powers that be. This was two years ago, the scholarship still exists to this day. You can tell the average person that a racially discriminatory policy is in place to fight racial discrimination and they will not question it. I'm not sure if it's fear or programmed cognitive dissonance but I've given up on believing in the capablility of reason amongst the common folk.
            When someone in a leadership position doesn't understand why telling a poor student they can't have scholarship money because of their skin color is WRONG, things have gone too far.

    You walnut brains have huffed too many of your own farts and it's led to early-onset senility. Just because you puked a scum of molten dogshit onto KDP doesn't make you an author or a pro writer. Likewise, earning the disgust of a dozen people on a dead board doesn't equate to fame.
    Don't get it twisted--nothing you say has any kind of profundity or wit, it's just cliche heaped upon cliche and delivered in the most banal, whitebread, flavorless way possible.
    And reaching for a litany of excuses every time you're called out. Above and beyond your lack of skill in writing you repeatedly display a lack of maturity in general, which is ironic given your advancing age.
    As you both spiral into a final end of mediocrity it might occur to you in a sudden flash that you wasted your time, but more likely you'll go the same way you came--unaware, drunk on delusion, and thinking anyone gave a shit.

            Remember when Segal used to punch noobies outside of the wall in Qeynos, knock them down to -x hitpoints, then berate them about being in Segal's town? Those erudites would show up, fresh off the boat, thinking they're about to move in and setup shop. Nuh-uh, not in Segal's 'hood! The best part was lipping them off while they had to just lie there and listen while regenerating hps.

            His is the same problem any of these attention starved wannabe writers have, which is that they don't excel at anything in particular and it's uninteresting to read. The prose is dull, characters nonexistent, no interesting angle, nothing new to say and all said in a boring cliched way. Or even worse, they do a bad impression of an extant writer like Simon Rich or DFW. They trade their sad little attempts at fiction among themselves in the jerk-off tent of their discord server and believe they've cracked the code because they didn't make a grammatical error or typo. But that's just the beginning of writing, not the end. This shit is hard work and requires raw talent, and above all a clear analytical mind that is honest with itself.

            Does anyone know how to write today?

            The last interesting thing to happen for me personally was the early 2010s shot-lived fad in weird horror, which back then had its flashes of genius buried in the pulp; but even that nowadays is overrun with the same tired amateuristic writing of people who haven't written enough yet. Land's attempts at fiction are surprisingly fresh and feel like reading Lovecraft for the first time.

          Trash empty stories that aren't even well written. It belongs on fanfic dot net. If you can't see why he is a talentless hack you are beyond saving.

          His is the same problem any of these attention starved wannabe writers have, which is that they don't excel at anything in particular and it's uninteresting to read. The prose is dull, characters nonexistent, no interesting angle, nothing new to say and all said in a boring cliched way. Or even worse, they do a bad impression of an extant writer like Simon Rich or DFW. They trade their sad little attempts at fiction among themselves in the jerk-off tent of their discord server and believe they've cracked the code because they didn't make a grammatical error or typo. But that's just the beginning of writing, not the end. This shit is hard work and requires raw talent, and above all a clear analytical mind that is honest with itself. You could almost say it's a personality problem that it comes down to. It sucks, I know, that some of you, most of you, will never figure out how to engage a reader--but that's just how it is.

      I bought Shards and although it is overpriced, it’s a pretty impressive demonstration of what one or two amateurs can do with some online tools. The book itself is designed very cleanly, and the storytelling is both abstract and engaging. It’s a solid effort, and although it doesn’t break any significant literary ground, it’s a cool testament to the outsider spirit that exists among IQfy‘s resident content creators.

            Pre-COVID, I was, in general, the center of attention. You can ask the fricking old bro on here who knows Jason Bryan, he can confirm, Jason used to be a very popular guy. POST-COVID I can socialize and even make friends, but when it comes to even emailing or texting anyone back... I just don't do it.

            When I moved out of Big White this November, I had several locals give me their emails and phone numbers to stay in contact... I never did.

            Previous to this, through various jobs and other activities, I was given phone numbers and email addresses to stay in contact with other people... I just can't be bothered. Hell, I used to love sending out hate mail and talk shit to people I used to know, and even that got boring. One of my old friends is working at a shelter on Hastings and Main and has reached out a few times with some stories and asking about me, but I just never wrote back.

            Post-COVID, I just feel so disconnected from basically everyone. Hard to even feel motivated at all to socialize or make friends. Ryan emailed me at least once or twice and I wanted to make plans to meet up with him this summer, but I still have this post-COVID... umm... rage I guess? I feel like nobody went through the shit I went through, losing my jobs, not working out for 8+ months, feeling like I wanted to just lose it on this shit society. The way I made it through the tough times was just withdrawing completely and now I don't even feel like I want to participate in, well, anything.

            Just feels like COVID never ended and I'm still surrounded by dipshits and homosexuals that would put the mask back on and line up for COVID shots again if they were told to. I would fricking SNAP if that shit ever happened again. I couldn't handle a fricking single more day of that utter bullshit.

            >I can't relate or connect with anyone.

      Oh silly little crab, once Day of the Rake is done, you can read it and thoroughly grill me over it if you hate it. Until then, enjoy "The Shitkickers" and "City of Singles", as I am a vastly talented and incredibly smart person- two qualities that mean nothing in a country where conformity is the #1 thing that provides an income and a role in modern society.

    no they aren't . people are buying fentanyl . they know they are buying fentanyl . it's like saying the tequila has been poisoned with alcohol.
    The "toxic drug supply" meme is media and government gaslighting to justify to taxpayers why their provincial government is turning them into heroin dealers.

      The people I know who died were buying coke! Three dudes I was friends with/knew, one who worked the oil rigs, one who worked as a diamond driller up north, and the 3rd... my dealer.

      The oil rig guy came back and showed off his new $8000 bicycle at the Blarneystone and did some rippers with us on a Friday night. We had a few drinks and then he walked to the Woodward's building to buy an 8ball from his dealer who lived there. We never saw him again until his girlfriend came and told us at the bar that she came home from work at like 3 AM on Friday night/Saturday morning and he was dead.

      The diamond driller guy, he flew back into town and picked up some coke, he was supposed to party with his "girlfriend" that night and HE ended up OD'ing and dying. Found that one out through Facebook.

      My dealer, the week I found out my baby momma was pregnant, I had already seen the two guys above die, and another couple of locals in Gastown, so when she told me she was pregnant, I decided to quit cold turkey. I had already moved out of Gastown and was renting a house in south Vancouver. That weekend, where I would normally pickup from him either outside of Funky Winkerbean's or "go for a ride in the limo", because he would rent a limo and be driven around downtown making tons of money selling coke... well... he died in the limo that weekend! He only sold coke and e.

      The coke back in like 2014-2015 was definitely poisoned! Multiple people, multiple different dealers, It was 100% absolutely happening.

          Haha no... I do know that when they were prescribing hydromorphone to addicts, and giving away the blister packs for free, one of the local hipsters at the underground bar in Strathcona was pissed because their brother who was in high school in Burnaby got ahold of one of the blister packs and had taken one at school thinking it would be a fun experience and it ended up fricking the kid up real bad. The "harm reduction" people had been giving out those hydromorphone blister packs and addicts took the skytrain to places like Metrotown and would deal the pills for $10 a pill and the kids would buy them thinking it was e or molly or whatever. When I talked to Frank during COVID, I believe he said they were taking the skytrain to Richmond and dealing hydromorphone there too.

          I don't know if they're giving out the pills to just anyone for free without a prescription anymore, but who even knows what the plan is? (other than getting as many people addicted as possible because it just keeps expanding the government)

        I agree.
        Granted, I hope Iran can correct Cyrus/Kourosh's mistake with the eradication of ~~*them*~~, who are the children of Ahriman. Almost all major problems can be traced back to ~~*them*~~, and in my view, Iran should be more anti-~~*them*~~ in a deeper and more metaphysical way. So long as ~~*they*~~ continue to exist, new problems of a scale and magnitude we cannot conceive will be perpetuated.
