oh, and to be clear

I don't actually know these people, usually

sometimes they are friends of friends (or ex-partners of partners - don't judge me) or just people I have seen on twitter who seem like better versions of me

Reading vast amounts of true crime stuff, getting sucked deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole as they say. It is of no conceivable benefit or use to me to be aware of this stuff. I think it may fill the role that horror novels fill with other people.

it's awful when you're reading something that makes you feel terrible then realise after fvcking hours or days that you COULD just stop reading, isn't it

I cannot ever have a nice family like people in the photos because I am covered in broken glass and prickles

I could make the choices that lead to a result but it would never work because I am broken

I am so sad about this

I am going to do another weird internet habit now, which is googling Scottish hills that are good for jumping off

then I will go for lunch

ROF
watching weird videos on youtube about godknowswhat (beekeeping, crystal mining, cake decorating, pimple popping, flash floods etc)
playing children's mmorpgs (i.e. not World of Warcraft etc and not exactly club penguin, but somewhere in between)

Martian - do you mean the terror stuff? Because that has really just underlined what a pointless piece of shyt my life is and how readily I would swap with one of those poor dead children.

Sadly you can't do that.

not really

be honest, some people do not make the world better or anyone in it happier (and in fact have the opposite effect)

we're just animals, there's no reason to believe we all have value

mandrills with short fangs are unwanted and so are many humans

unless you meant the bees thing in which case you better not be talking any more trash because bees are brilliant

Just rof. It's the only place where I can post what I really think. Well here and in private whatsapp groups with my boorish m8s.

The rest of the time I just pretend (and fool most people) that I am a "norm".

Watching videos like "top 5 strangest ever things caught on camera" or "top 5 unsolved mysteries of people disappearing" on youtube - particularly the ones with bits taken from CCTV or news reports.

Doing online quiz websites like jetpunk or sporcle

checking out local news websites for places I have been - even places I only went to once or twice more than 10 years ago

North face of Ben Nevis is good, or the Cobbler (but you have to crawl through the hole and along the ledge first to get a decent vertical drop).

Of course, climbing to the top of either of those will hopefully put so many endorphines into your system, and the view will be so stunning, that you will change your plans when you get there

I have been thinking about hypnotherapy to get over my fear of hillclimbiong actually

I like walking so it's an annoying impediment

It's not a secret — clearly, else I wouldn't be posting it on here – and probably isn't that weird, but I still buy CDs online and rip them, rather than subscribing to an online music service.

I can't think of any. I was watching SNL videos on YouTube this morning before getting up. That probably doesn't count...

I have always been a member of at least one message board at any given time.

Can't think of any others!!

My weirdest internet habit is watching ASMR videos on youtube.

Tactile sound and soft voices that make my brain buzz and send me to sleep.

I do that as well, funky, although I buy CDs at FOPP or HMV. This is the major reason why I haven't upgraded my MacBook Pro from 2009--need that built-in CD drive.

I don't get ASMR (tho I find women whispering really disproportionately enraging so it must be doing something to my brain)

I have a friend who compulsively orders stuff off the internet that she then keeps, unopened, in a pile in her bedroom

she buys a lot of vinyl records

doesn't even own a record player

Nope.

No vinyl records here.

And I always open them.. like it's Christmas.

For some reason it always feels like they are presents.

it is a bit!

unsurprising presents

unless you buy dozens at a time as a kind of thrill

I am in a throwing kittens out phase so it has sort of put me off buying
