I highly recommend watching the documentary Going Clear as well as reading the book that it's based on. Scary stuff.

In the words of the Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard himself:
"You don't get rich writing science fiction. If you want to get rich, you start a religion."

    My new phone came in! It's a cheap LG Premier, but it's much better than my old LG Optimus Fuel. It's the first phone that makes me want to do phone things :P

    Maybe, no matter how hard you try, at some point you just have to accept that you're the weird loner who just can't connect with people or be social or make friends. Maybe being a more reclusive and silent person is just best for everyone.

    I feel like sometimes Jason, you like to be safe and secure and non-risky.. I think you need to let go of that, do something a bit crazier than normal now and then. You're more capable than you realize, I think.

    Did you have something specifically crazy in mind?

    I have to admit, I don't see the connection between what you say and being unable to connect with people...

    It took me a long time to realize it but the ability to connect with people isn't something you're born with... It's something you learn how to do by doing it a lot. For me, the best way to do that has been to just find local social events and go to them. Like maybe there's a board game club or video game club or something...?

    I dunno, I just feel like giving up isn't the best plan, unless you genuinely don't want to find connections.

    Oh, I couldn't really give up...as upset or depressed as things may get me, I eventually bounce back and try again. It's just my nature...and while I may have once been a total loner, I emotionally thrive on having close, personable friendships...it's something that I crave, and it's agonizing when I don't have that.

    Real life has always been a problem for me, just in that I don't have much in common with most people around here...but even when I think I would have something in common with people, I don't even know how to get things started with them. I rarely have an opportunity to casually chat or mingle with those people, and it seems like it'd be awkward and weird to just go up to them out of nowhere and start talking to them.

    But what really bothered me was my lack of connections online, a space where I have much in common with others and I have never had a problem in that area before. Sometimes I feel like an outcast in ways that I shouldn't, and sometimes I feel like I'm not relating to people in ways that I should be able to...ways that I used to be able to. That makes me think something has gone wrong with my mindset in general...

    Took me a while to remember who Jason was, for a second I was wondering if we had a new member or something  :P
    Evey and I were part of a community where most people were on a first-name basis...in fact, for a time we both used our real names as our usernames...and well, she still does here. :P Actually I think it's a shame that's not a tradition that we have here...I think it helps people connect as...well, people. Not as anonymous beings behind a screen.

    Teach me your ways O' Great One!

    But in all seriousness I get told a lot by the staff that violence isn't the answer, which I'm sure they'll probably tell you as well. In my experience sometimes you have to use violence to show an idiot that you aren't afraid of them and aren't afraid of taking them down.

    But I am a habitual pacifist so I have no license to speak on this subject.

    just tell them the spirit of Wayne Brady filled you in that moment and you were forced to comply

    Otoh if the kid is habitually an ass, they'll assume that it was understandable. So I wouldn't worry about it unless he's not a habitual ass.

    I once punched a guy at school because he constantly bullied me and I finally snapped. He told the teacher and the teacher just laughed at him.

    Now you have like.. zero tolerance policies and shit. Sigh.

    I have an older brother and he looked out for me growing up so the one bully I had was beaten to a red paste. That doesn't mean I haven't stood up to some idiot that decided to be an ass. I've choke-slammed one such person before. Violence does work with bullies. They like picking on people that won't fight back. When things become difficult for them they back down. They're cowards at heart.
