Children of broken homes have an incredible disadvantage as young adults.
I came upon a note I wrote in 2006-03-05 or earlier.
I avoid roleplaying with women for concerns over chastity, atmosphere influences, favouritism and pathetic newbie girl roleplayers.
I thought a bit about it and I figured I'd write on it.. since I've changed, and circumstances have changed.
A man wakes, reconstructed as a cyborg, and finds himself hunted by unknown forces.
A fucking astonishingly great movie! Fast, bloody and fun. It's effortlessly hilarious, and without being a comedy.
I was initially rather annoyed at the found footage-style shaky camera, but it got so intuitive so fast that it really helped me get into the character and movie. If you like bloody non-stop action movies, definitely give this movie a chance.
Exploring this concept.
I got burnt out and bored pretty quickly, but here are some notes.. I guess.
Women seem confused about "what to do" with regards to men.
Just a copy of some interesting text.
Why aren't there many geese here?
Well, I tend to make friends with people like me. People that do the same things as me and are interested in the same things as me. That's just how things work. Isn't that how you work? Aren't your friends mostly geese?
So I brought my friends, who are mostly ducks. So here we have mostly ducks. Most of the other people who were interested enough to come were also ducks, who brought mostly other ducks. Ducks share the same interests as ducks.
The question is, then, why didn't you bring any geese?
You came alone then blamed me for .. what.. not bringing your friends?
Why were you interested and your friends weren't?
You asked me a question you would be the expert at answering.
Some additional thoughts on "the wage gap". There is probably duplication, but I thought I'd be more directly blunt this time around. This seems to be a decently-complete set of thoughts, for once.
Problem - On average, "females earn less money than males".
A story about a man being a man.
A man, like all men, must "man up" instead of showing weakness. Not allowed to talk about his feelings, or ask for help, he is never diagnosed with mental disorders. When his wife dies, he is never offered and can't seek counselling. When he spirals into depression he cannot talk about it or seek help. When his disorders flare up, he again cannot ask for help. His bills unpaid, he's still required to suffer quietly until he is driven to suicide or is thrown into the streets. He can't even talk to his family. He is a man who must be a man.
A movie with no characters, no plot and no purpose. Though I wonder if it intended it, this movie supremely highlights the silent suffering men live with.
