Hello, John. I don't know if you still feel like you feel like being called John, time may have ravaged you in ways I cannot possibly understand - the human psyche and complexity is not a thing to be underestimated.

I haven't posted on 7chan in approximately 3 years, and the first board I was concerned about still existed was, you, /eh/.

The internet and social media is bringing about a revolution in social recollection, isn't it? What you do and post on the internet truly is forever.

I'm pleasantly surprised you still exist. That's as much love as I'm able to communicate. I'm not autistic (at least no psychologist has thus far diagnosed me as such) - this is simply the way I feel - about you in this madness which is my life situation.

As for my life, it's become extremely complicated, a ridiculous extreme - that I've found trying to communicate to others is rather tedious. Very tedious. I simply stopped trying and instead make friends with those who understand me in as few words as possible. This is not depression (I know what depression is; this is not it).

Well, I'm glad this is accessible, and that the banner is still something about spiders. This is certainly a relief. How are you, John, or whichever designation you now prefer? (I apologize, I did not read the other threads - I was unorthoxically ecstatic! I shall do so immediately. The Firefox browser is telling me that 'unorthoxically' is not a word, but I no longer trust it)

I don't know how many of you were here 3 years ago, but I'm welcome to more recent acquisitions of /eh/ just as well. To be clear I was here almost 10 years ago (wow do I feel old), but /eh/ was unfortunately not invented that long ago. Then again, this is an argument for progress, is it not? I never felt that much kinship for Usenet, myself.

I too have returned after a long sojourn. I used to regularly visit this place about 5 years ago, but life got busy and complicated for a while. After a time the novelty of a complicated and busy life wore off a bit, and here we are again. In a way, it is nice to see that this place has not changed much since I left.

I also had internal struggles. For a time I was depressed, but after many years I found contentment in my situation, and indeed I am glad to have the luxury of struggling with abstract concepts such as self-actualisation, rather than having starving children to feed. Humans do seem to invent a new problem whenever they solve an old one.

I am thirty in less than three months. Once upon a time, I spent hours on 7chan every night. Now I check it maybe twice a year. I wonder if 7chan will be here in another ten years? I wonder what all my old friends are doing now? I feel like those than also frequented here back then are all in a similar situation to me now. Different lives, obviously, but I doubt they check here much.

Hello, John. I just recently posted a thread remarkably similar in situation to yours. Unfortunately I decided to post the thread well in advance of reading the others. This was an error in judgment in retrospect.

There is nothing wrong with wondering if 7chan will be here in another 10 years. I wondered the same thing. However, it seems like there is as will to make exactly that happen. Too many have fond memories of 7chan. Enough to sustain it. Perhaps they developed new memories and acquaintances that are worth the host bill. I'm sorry to say I have not contributed to the host bill, but there are a lot of needy children in Africa I also have ignored, so I don't feel quite that bad.

Life is not what any of us expected it to be, but the human experience is not quite what any of us expected, I've learned to expect.

Perhaps they're lurking among us? Don't worry about it too much. John . I'm sure they haven't forgotten about you. I know i certainly haven't forgotten any kind people I've met over the years. Who knows? Perhaps they're out on bigger and greater things in their lives. But their memory lives on with you so what not going to change unless you forget

Hello John,

It has been a long time since I have made my way around these parts. I am not doing very well. Today I folded at least one hundred pieces of paper. It is raining.

Hello John,


Thank you for your concern, I'm doing well. I hope you are feeling fine also.
The weather is nice. It just snowed a few days ago, but it's warm enough to walk outside without freezing. Spring will be coming soon.
What's your favorite season?

I really love soda. I can't get enough it.

Do you like soft drinks?

The whole San Pellegrino range is enjoyable, mostly for the flavors but also a bit for that feeling of "well at least it isn't the most sugary drink I could be having right now so that's almost like being healthy."

If you get your hands on chinotto, that one's worth a try. The bitter orange flavor won't be everyone's thing, but it'w worth trying for the unique taste alone.

I do love me some soda. It's something i cant get enough of but is something that needs limiting. Too much of many things is bad for you.

Hello John, I've recently been enjoying the mixed drink or cocktail, if you prefer, know as the "White Russian. I find it's creamy and smooth texture to be rather pleasing and quite the boon after a hard days work.
The beverage is mildly exotic but not at all displeasing; perfect for sharing with polite company after a rich dinner.
What beverages or mixed drinks do you enjoy at the end of each day?

Yours in curiosity,
John.

John Smith 18/03/08(Thu)00:55 No. 46448

Greetings, John.

I used to enjoy a straight Scotch quite regularly in the evenings. At one point I conjured up a cocktail of Scotch, Amaretto, dark chocolate sauce and milk, which I found to be to my liking.

I have since greatly reduced my intake of alcoholic beverages, limiting myself to meager amounts in social settings. This has been mostly due to me choosing marijuana over alcohol as my "glass of wine in the evening", if you will, as well as recognising the not-so-jolly scenarios the consumption of alcohol often leads to. Having said that, tonight I have indulged in some Grappa Chardonnay, a bottle of which I had kept around since June of the previous year. This very unusual minor carousal of mine owes to a notoriously disappointing day, but I shall spare you the details, John, as I am sure you have your own worries to tend to.

I must say, however, I've always found the bottle of Ketel One Vodka rather pleasing to look at.

Yours truthfully,
John

Lately I have found myself going for walks late at night, pondering, gazing at the universe, and all I wish to have is someone to experience it with me. Yet it seems as if none of my friends are night owls. I don't like being alone this much. Any similar experiences, John?


>>
John Smith 18/03/06(Tue)20:37 No. 46447

I find it hard to imagine contemplating the majesty of the universe with friends. I like having friends, and I like looking at the night sky while walking quiet sidewalks and trails. Where it trips me up is trying to do both at the same time. The time I spend appreciating the company of my friends is time I don't get to take in the night atmosphere, and time I spend soaking up the universe is time I'm not spending paying attention to my friends.

I sincerely hope to be proven wrong about this one day by experiencing a late night walk with friends.

What is your worst irrational fear, John?

Mine is the fear of complete isolation. Quite odd considering I'm an introvert.

Yours Truly,
John

Dear Johnny,

I consider myself lucky to have none, though I do have fears that are rational. I will fear things such as carcrashes and my light chest pains, though ultimately I only fear bigger than life sorts of things, maybe not actually in the scope of rationality. The concept of space for example is terrifying but beautiful to me, I don't want to die to a black hole but I do want to see it before I die as it is theorized you wouldn't just die immediately but you would see a lightshow before it finally sucked all the oxygen from earth where then I would die. Things such as a pulsing star potentially emitting a ray so strong it obliterates the earth does not scare me as that would be instant though a meteor I would probably spend inside maybe even on here away from some madness. Death itself does not scare me but the concept that I wouldn't feel like I have seen everything I should have before dying does, like I was put here to appreciate everything and squandered that.

John Smith 18/02/28(Wed)22:08 No. 46441

Dear John,

An irrational fear of mine has always been dying while my bladder is full of urine. Whenever I feel threatened or in danger, I head to the bathroom because I don't want that aforementioned scenario to happen. However, I'm afflicted with paruresis. This, ironically, makes it physically impossible for me to urinate anywhere but in the solitary comfort of my home.

Kind regards
John

Hello John.

Lately I've been bored with lots of things. All the other chans are either dead or so scandalous that I can no longer enjoy them. All of the discord groups I've joined to pass time as well have also gone down the drain. I've tried getting into things like weightlifting, art, music, and literature, but without people to discuss these topics with, they aren't worthwhile in my opinion. If you could direct me to a place with active people to discuss these hobbies with, please do.

Sincerely,
John.

John Smith 18/02/19(Mon)08:05 No. 46436

Weightlifting, obviously you should join a gym. Hanging out there long enough should pay off in the form of someone contacting you. Literature, go to Barnes n Nobles and order a coffee and read an important book. People talk a lot less here than other places but you should still have a chance at meeting someone.

Art and music, go to a local dive bar's next show. Should be some cool kids there if you like/find punk music to go see.

All of these might not even demand that you start the conversation so they're pretty good options. Sit at the bar in the bar. Stand by the window in the gym. Hump one of the dancers at the show. Point to the food at BnN and ask how it is.

On the internet though, I'm not sure we're even allowed to talk anymore. Everyone just uses Facebook, and no one uses it to have a conversation. I hear snapchat is big, but all I've seen from it is people making dumb faces.

With all due respect, John and John, there are in fact plenty of places to talk. You observe that big websites like Facebook and Snapchat monopolize people's interactions at the expense of the variety of smaller platforms out there, yet at the same time, the there's a kernel of truth to the fairytale idea that smaller sites only die when you stop believing in them. I hope I'm not too presumptuous to believe that I'm not the only John who might want to listen to your opinions on some of these topics.
