I Move The Stars For No One
Chewing / Mouth sounds in general. And people clinging to me. I like hugs, but if you feel me trying to move away, please don't continue to cling to me.

Recently though? People who do not take this pandemic seriously.

people who talk louder/scream when they think their shitty opinion isn't being heard or agreed upon. they think they can scream people into submission and it works sometimes, but that doesn't mean they're going to agree with you any more than they did before you started yelling. civil conversations are few and far between, my friends.

i, personally, hate being shut down in a conversation and the fastest way to make me do that is to raise your voice even a faction louder than what it was before. I hate people knowing that about me because it just feels like i'm already going into certain discussions at a disadvantage. if they don't want to hear what I have to say, they just gotta yell and I'll shut up. and that's not right. you don't have to agree with me. i'm fine with that so why are you yelling? for the life of them, people can't agree to disagree or even consider another's opinion without immediately getting defensive about their own.

Honestly I do the same (in personal life lol, mod duties are different), and I never thought of it as a bad thing. The alternative is getting into a yelling match to see who can shout their opinion the loudest, and no one gets anything from that. You're basically becoming what you so despise.

Imo that's the best way to deal with those people, is to just go quiet. They're not going to listen to you, so it's pointless to try and make your words known to them. It's not worth the effort. It's why I only share my unpopular opinions with friends I KNOW will listen respectfully and give their counterarguments in a calm and collected fashion. Otherwise I just won't bother, cause it's more stress than I need in my life right now.

I was more so saying it wasn't right for them to start yelling in the first place, but I see your point.

Promoting, teaching, and exaggerating fallacies, trivialities, and/or things smaller than they appear to justify the creation of an unstable environmental, destruction of society, and self destruction. Viewing it as a great triumph when in reality they're making things worse, and end up causing the fatalities of others through the instability of one's mental state caused through the resulting oppression and decaying situation. Having such zealotry in such a belief that anyone even upon their side not sharing the exact same views and opinion is branded as a terrorist, a fascist, insane, and any other bogus word utilized so many times that its meaning is forever lost to time.

Due to my immense negativity around anything to do committing to self elimination besides humor, I obviously am disgusted by the acts of these parasites, a they're the direct source and a number even brag about it. Their actions so chaotic, that the actually sane marching alongside them but more reasonable ends up getting yeeted by mere association. Then the crazed lunatics even go as far as generalizing themselves and preventing the creation of new titles fir specific groups. Thus, all the good people upon their side end up categorized as being as detrimental and a terrorist as the moron actually conducting true long lasting damages. The destruction of property even their own, the eradication of uneven speakers on all sides and the indifferent, the burning of knowledge through throat cramming agenda, discrimination viewed as inclusivity, screaming their views at each other like mindless barbarians, racists acting like they can't be racist because they're not a white guy, the actions of extremists being triumphed in varying sexualities/preferences making anyone gay - to a mere entertaining straight drag queen become frowned upon, becoming as they so preach against, inevitable self and others' cancel culture, eradication of opinion, free speech being so pummeled that by this point nobody even knows it's limits, calling regressiveness progressive and the progressionist idea called regressiveness, countries such as Germany basically demonizing it's people for merely existing and acting as if they want to remove themselves from existence in both material and physical forms no matter how harmless or old, blasting down history WHILE also repeating history exactly while they do it and play victim rather than sell it off to a museum and treat it as awareness regardless of good or bad. Even some people weaponizing themselves and the pandemic to silence or otherwise negatively impact others for a giggle. [As for the museum part, to have an example exist of what not to do especially, but they're not smart enough to figure it out. I mean, that's just how it be in Arstotzka when you get scrap paper of identifying every gender than specializing or learning multiple fields such as engineering. These same brainlets smoother than paper also want to take down monuments dedicated to people that wanted to abolish things such as slavery. The absolute parasites, that sets a negative precedent!.] And much, much more. I cannot await the day someone creates rapture between Iceland and Greenland, with the lighthouse coordinates located far off from the city itself. I insult those types here of course, because not of intents or belief but that's what they tend to be. Groups flee from battles they start up as well as getting others to suffer for them then abandoning them when inconvenient, and the rest tend to live off the same stuff they so have a rage boner on destroying. Is that not the very definitions of both? However I do admit calling them morons is not exactly a scientific observation and is a 110% insult, but in of itself quite apt.

They literally create the conditions they fight against, promote actions that will inevitably result in the harming or deaths of others, walk about with weapons, and act as if they're the good guy. There is none. The moment one acts to defend themselves, their life is already metaphorically over. They're branded akin to a murderer, and if they're famous then the mere act of creating a rumor against them will leave a permanent ostracising mark upon them, while others that lack knowledge or refusing to conduct research will automatically believe it to be true. In effect, they've succeeded in causing what I'll call a "covert" and self induced and focused nation wide genocide spreaded across the seven seas. The demonization of entire demographics based upon crimes they themselves had nothing to do with outside what their skin looks like, and creating a double standard unlike ever seen before. People representing other demographics as if they are that demographic and lessening the voice of those demographics in the process, and overrunning and taking it too far. This and the self termination ratio that practically increases, and nolonger slows to as it once was. "Picking and choosing", whom speaks for certain groups or not, silencing those with a negative reaction to the above actions. Choosing a single race over all to care for to such an extent that it has evolved into an act of superiority preferential. Unnecessary and willing conduction of removal of life, and laws enabling even up to a newborn fresh out of there as capable of termination with glee, as the mental state of either willing or unwilling to the procedure is traumatized by the action and has to play it off. Practically OG eugenics/preferential living and undesired dying hailed, rather than life being allowed to thrive and any issues being resolved through technological aide. Predatory acts including threat to long term relationships. The eradication of firearms and absolutely no understanding of their laws, and the sources entirely ignored in favor of believing the weapons by themselves are the problem and not the people and hidden markets that have them... It sounds like a riveting tale from the world's most detailed franchise to even rival Dune, yet, this is reality. We march, smiling upon the streets we once maintained, nolonger understanding even ourselves and broken. Destined to certain death and pain, and all the more accepting. Any technology to resolve this perpetual and repeating cycle of this new fate either is limited, outlawed, or viewed as dangerous to society and frowned upon. The opinion carried over until barely anyone is left that understands what it actually does and how, and they themselves become disorientated and leave as the misguided shame them. The not-even-real-militia militia of people that took up weapons to defend themselves, their history, and property, and repulsing the terrorist organizations rampant is themselves shamed, but have held the line. Hope is, they hold it longer. Maybe even push ahead time after time again. Mimicking the rooftop Koreans scenario, they are the most progressive and "righteous" of us all. There was a time for peace, many still attempt. Yet, the violence and nonsense continues. The only logical remaining outcome is that of self defense. Grown tired of the rampant lunacy, proactive solutions to the modern problem is manifesting. They exactly only have themselves to blame, as the more "hardcore" will inevitably become imprisoned, and order is restored. This the natural and progressive aspect of civilization. One may fuck it all up, but inevitably, unless humanity becomes extinct or some other catastrophic meme event, another shall correct it. For now, it is a perpetual cycle that'll never be broken nor stopped. Through technology however there is always the chance to finally get rid of the problem once and for all, as tech is inevitable regardless of action taken or intent.

Surely, becoming a wall ornament in superpowered hell, after fighting to survive in an inescapable environment from a video game is a more logical and entertaining affair than the carnival that is the global stage. That or surviving only to die by being crushed by ocean pressure and collapsing buildings and flooding from it. If true AI is developed, and the western stereotype of it mindlessly wanting to genocide humanity is real, then it is a far more humane operation than the hell we have now. I propose relocating to another planet, the suffering might start still in a million years, but we would be happier until then. A false sense of overcoming, or security is a more acceptable outcome and we all know it to be true.

That right there lads, it is THAT which is my ultimate peeve.

People who have more than one child constantly complaining about how crappy it is to be a parent: lack of sleep, work/life balance, kids being annoying. You had ONE already, maybe you didn't know what you were getting into, but if you didn't like the experience the first time, why the heck have another one? Goes double if they are middle class and not really struggling in any meaningful way, and triples if they have more than two children under five. I have FB friends who do this and it drives me nuts.

I'm sure it drives me even more nuts because there's no way you can complain about this without looking like a total douchebag, unless it's solely to other people who don't have kids. XD

Kinda feel bad for the kids. I'd feel awful if my mom was genuinely complaining about how difficult I've made her life.

Well they probably won't get on FB for another ten years or so, so they won't know. XD At least I hope these people aren't bitching about it in front of their children. That would definitely be worse.

People who see the lane is ending. There was a sign at 2 miles. A sign at 1 mile. A sign at half mile. And yet, they wait until the very last second, until the very last inch of their lane, and are surprised and shocked when they can't find a place to merge into traffic. I just...ugh I can feel my blood pressure rising while just typing this. I gotta go do some breathing exercises, oof!

Worse, the [redacted] who see the Lane Ending sign/change in lines on the ground... and then merge into the ending lane so they can use it to pass you.

Every. Single. Time.

People who get snobbish or just plain mean about you wearing a shirt with a band on it that you've personally never listened to. Like, hello. I'm poor. This is a hand-me-down shirt. Thanks for noticing.

Here we freakin go.

People that don't understand communication issues. I'm autistic. That's something I am. Part of that is my complete and utter lack of ability to figure out hints properly, Like, you can't be passive-aggressive towards me, not just because it's rude and bitchy, but because I don't understand your hints!!! I explained to you that I need straightforwardness and what do I get? An 'Oh, sur, fine. Do whatever you want' like dammit I told you I'm gonNA TAKE THAT AT FACE VALUE-

This is only towards th people I've explained it too, btw. If you don't know I have communication issues than you're pretty much off the hook for expecting me to read the room properly.

It's a lot harder to pick up the tone of voice of a message through text in general. Everyone struggles with that aspect in some way or another and it's definitely not any easier for people with autism.
