    On the look out for a small lot of land to lease for a couple years at the moment. I'm nowhere near buy land at this point. I'm going to school to become a farmer and I'm all in.

    "We have implemented a security system by placing two sticks on the bottom of the package. Please let us know if the stickers have been removed or tempered with. "

    Calling 2 stickers a security system is pretty funny.

    So sad when bands with amazing early albums start changing their sound. Creative evolution and whatnot and I'm sure they're happy with what they're putting out but I wish they stayed with it.

    I don't mind when artists do this cause I like to jump from genre to genre. The ones I've stuck with the most are those who changed their sound and have regained my interest. Though, I would agree that many artist's best works are their early ones.

    I feel like bands get bigger and they have more options and the records become way too polished. Give me that gritty avant garde shit you recorded in the drummers garage.

    yeah i agree with this. Like they made their fanbase off the early records and now everything is just far too polished that its so different from what they were even known/liked for.



    I went out for some food in my town recently and I ran into some people I knew from highschool that dropped out/didn't go to college. Its unbearable to even make small talk. Its literally the same conversations about hockey like local low-level hockey, dating the same girls from high school, fucking around in the same bars on the weekends. I can't fathom how someone can literally grow up in one place, and be completely content with just doing the same shit that you were doing in highschool for the rest of your life. Its like their life hasn't evolved or changed at all and they're completely okay with that. How do you not get depressed af. How does that work I'll never understand.

    You do and you try to suppress it by doing the things you know. Ask me how I know.

    the trick is to move around a lot and be a different person everywhere you go

    how do u know.

    Im not even joking, some of the conversations I've had went like this:

    me: "so your grandfather lived here his whole life too?"
    guy: "yeah"
    me: "your parents?"
    guy: "yeah they lived here as well"
    me: "dont you want to go different places? just to experience or see something new like why not?"
    guy: "idk. Its just easy here. I like it"

    like what even bruh

    Judging from what has been posted so far I'm guessing those people had many good experiences in their hometown which explains their lack of incentive to move elsewhere. It's likely that people who want to relocate elsewhere are trying to escape from their past negative experiences in that hometown. Or it may just simply be that some people would prefer to have a simple, easy life rather than a stressful, ambitious one filled with constant challenges and difficulties. Moreover these people can always go on vacation to other places without necessarily committing themselves to live there permanently at the expense of their hometown and former friends.

    I mean if you're happy with what you've got, why try to find something else. Change is annoying and exhausting. I just want to be comfortable and relax.

    I don't know if I like my earlier answer, it's hard to formulate what I'm trying to say. Basically my life revolves around quick and easy bursts of happiness even if those bursts are results of "bad" decisions. I drink, I smoke, I gamble, I play video games for the greater part of my day, all because those things tend to cause short-term pleasure, I know they work so I keep doing them. Yeah there's other things out there that probably make me happy but I don't know what they are and trying to find out if a certain activity is "doing it for me" is often expensive, time-consuming, exhausting and most of the time, in my experience, not worth it. I know what works, I'm sticking to it. Add in some self-diagnosed social anxiety, depression and introversion and you'll get a hell of a hard time making new experiences.

    To sum up all of what I've said: I'm just a simple serotonin-driven ape.

    I feel like this is common in dumb people not that I would call myself dumb but I'm probably not overly smart either. Certainly not well educated.

    Another issue w/ this convo is that it's already framed the wrong way. We're talking about people who stayed in their home town and people who "that dropped out/didn't go to college" as if they're necessarily the same people.

    I know tons of dropouts who do awesome stuff, and tons of people who went to and finished college only to stay in their hometown as dental assistants or whatever, and are exactly the type of people we're talking about.

    At that 16-23 age it's hard to sort people in your brain in any way other than "college vs non-college", but that shit fades away real quickly the longer you're in the real world. College means literally nothing in 95% of cases. Our children are being duped.

    No way I'd want to be a commercial farmer, or make money at it. Farming is to feed me and mine.
