What should I do after I stupidly read a site's comment section?

Postby SolarpunkFan » 2017-01-23 02:47pm

Well, I went ahead and read the comments section on a website. I should've know better not to do so by now. Apparently not. :banghead:

So now I'm pissed and can't stop thinking about them.

My question is: does anyone know of any techniques of cooling down and stopping obsessive thinking after reading a comments section?

Bunnies. Real, silly bunnies doing bunny things. I wish I still had my real ones.

Then there is my flute or my tin-whistle if its a really bad self-depricating-self-hating cycle. Just find a quiet spot and improvise.

Really, anything that has an emotional response and distracts you while engaging your brain.

I really suck at arguing though. I'm not sure if it's because of my disability or just because I'm stupid, but it takes me a long time to come up with a counterpoint to something. :P

Thank you for the suggestions everyone (including you mr friendly guy, I appreciate your suggestion too). :D

In Chinese tradition / superstition after going to an "unclean" place - a morgue, a wake, to prevent whatever negativeness of death from entering the home, people should make a small fire - with newspapers or something like that - and jump over it... and quickly change clothes.

Or visit another establishment before going home, so the death-aura or whatever goes to that place instead of going to the home.

I feels ya on the inability to debate well. I've found my way of not being a complete fuck up is to take things slow and to try to form a coherent argument in my head before putting fingers to key. I tend to try to work out a conversation with the back and forth in my head imagining the person as a real person and while its rarely close to reality it gives something more then text on screen to debate against. Sometimes I find it easier to do so.

Mind you I also try to go slow because my writing is total shit without tons of correction, like pure gibberish because all the letters and sometimes entire parts of sentences get really badly jumbled if I don't concentrate to form something coherent.

Take a nice, stout, oaken stick. Next, hit yourself in the balls with it. Repeat as needed (whenever you are tempted to see an internet comment section.) Afterwards, spend thousands of dollars on treating the PTSD you will give yourself in following this advice. Realize that, thanks to Donald Trump, you won't have thousands of dollars to spend on treating your PTSD. Die penniless, and in misery because only blood comes out when you urinate.

In seriousness, keep your expectations strictly bottom-shelf, and learn to accept that the average IQ of the average internet comment section is within a standard deviation or two of "the family dog ... no, not the smart one, the one that insists on eating pennies." Arguing with comment section trolls will only reduce your lifespan and make your doctor rich managing your severe hypertension.

The Japanese game show works better since a)he won't even have to hit himself in the balls, the mechanical arm does it for him, and b)he'll get paid so he'll have some money to deal with the aftereffects of getting ball slapped by a mechanical arm. But the most important part is we'll get to see it all on Youtube, and who doesn't like seeing guys getting dropped by groin shots? It's wholesome entertainment for the entire family!
