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?

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.

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

Hi all, OP John here, cool to see that this thread is still near the top of the first page. I haven't been on in awhile, as I have been busy. But man does it sure feel nice to come back to this great board and fellowship with all of you again.

Regards,
John

One of the reasons I love it here is because there's a chance of dredging up an old thread you forgot you participated in.

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.

I just realized I forgot to refill my phone and went the past 3 days without noticing. The alarm clock functioned though and I use it mostly for that.


>>
John Smith 18/02/02(Fri)12:50 No. 46418

The alarm application on my phone requires one to specify the day for which the alarm is to be set. Failure to specify it leads to it assuming that the alarm is for 6 days in the future. This... feature has put me in unfortunate situations, especially when I am too tired to remember to set the day.

Do you set your alarms for 6 days in the future, John?

I apologize for making you wait on my reply John. My phone is old, actually a cheap flip phone, so I have never had to deal with any sort of "app". This actually gives me a slight feeling of satisfaction.
People can text me all they want, I cannot read them as the screen has been cracked for the past 5 years. More satisfaction.
I can only set the alarm to go off 5 times, so this gets set each night when I go to bed. I don't even know if I will be around 6 days in the future John. I hope so though, as I do have a vacation next month.

Dear John,

I actually took off tomorrow for the same reason. How humorous.

Seattle rain is a disappointment. For a few weeks in fall and sometimes late winter we get nonstop rain which is great, but then the rain just kinda gives up and only comes round every so often. Summers are completely dry. It's also usually light, so you can't even hear it on the windows.

I hear Ireland gets a lot of rain.

Dear John,

It has only snowed here twice this year. It is unseasonably dry.

I do like the rain though. We could use more of it.

Yours truly,
John

P.S. I like to just sit and watch it rain. I also like to just sit and watch it snow. Weather is so nice to watch.
