Amazingly, I haven't made a Superthread since January 2013.

Of course, there've only been about five since then.

At the current rate I probably won't make another one ever until about January 2023!

Messageboards really aren't what they used to be either. All the chat threads around here are ghost towns, and the forum itself is much slower. I think it's a shame really. I find most of the currently popular forms of social media to not be half as good as messageboards, but I suppose the nature of the Internet beast is that it's constantly shifting.

I just don't get a proper sense of community out of Twitter, Tumblr, etc., and Facebook is becoming unbearable thanks mainly to bloody old people.

I have fun in the comments sections on some blogs, but there's no firmness there. When we finish a thread, I can still go back to them and find them again.

I guess I can do the same with a comments section or facebook, but it seems like too much work, lol.

And Cobbler:

Bummerville, CA, United States Superthread

Yes, as Khan said, it's a reference to Kill Bill, a MASSIVELY popular film, which also was referenced again in the Lady Gaga music video for "Telephone" in which Beyonce and Lady Gaga use the Pussy Wagon as their getaway car.

I've made so many great friends through messageboards, especially this one. I really can't imagine a similar dynamic on other forms of social media, especially since I take a while to really get to know people. Plus I guess I'm a bit old-school-Internet in my attitude that regularly posting more than a couple of times a day is the behaviour of teenage attention whores. The rapid turnover of content on some forms of social media makes it seem to me impossible to keep up with and hard to develop a sense of community.

I'm personally just fed up with my IRL friends at the moment. Everyone is so wrapped up in themselves, with so much needless drama. No one just wants to hang out and have fun anymore, no they just want someone to play therapist for them.

Can you blame them? The world is so horribly fucked up. Yes, it's less fucked up than it's ever been, but we're aware of everything horrible that's happening.

Long may it rain, I mean reign. I'm all for message boards. As for the world, it will have to look after itself. Awareness does not equal agency.

I just ended one of the only irl relationships I've got on this coast because she couldn't respect my faith. It was really stupid, too.

I had a close female friend for several months earlier this year. A few years back she and I had been coworkers, and acquaintances, but it wasn't until this year that we really started hanging out.

She turned out to be pretty batshit crazy. For one, she was barely 21 and still in college, with no job, but desperately wanted to have a baby. She was single, but begin attempting to recruit sperm doners, including my gay brother (he was not amused at her popping the question).

Eventually she ended up hooking up with this guy. They had unprotected sex ONE time. He got her the morning after pill, and she took it. She was really worried and convinced that it wouldn't work. Her period was due in less than a week. It came on time. End of story, right? No.

A few weeks later when the guy was out of the picture, she referred to the incident as a "pregnancy scare" (fair enough), and told me that she had taken a bunch of pregnancy tests. They'd all been negative except one, which we can assume was a false positive. It happens.

But no, fast forward a few more weeks, when I guess she was craving attention, so she posted on Facebook that she has gotten pregnant and had a miscarriage.

Now this made no sense to me at all, and I ended up questioning her about it in private. She got super offended and made another post reiterating that her miscarriage did in fact happen. She and I pretty much stopped talking at that point.

Looking back, she had other moments of crazy. Her mood was a constant shift between gleeful when people were paying attention to her, and horribly depressed, and making suicidal threats when people were not. She once told me she was going to drive her car off the bridge on her way home, because she had no one to go home to. I told her I didn't ever want to hear any of that shit again.

That is not just me being harsh. I'd dealt with her enough by that point to realize that her threats didn't have much substance to them, but were rather attempts to get someone to come rescue her/be with her/take care of her. I'm convinced that the only reason she wants a baby so bad is so she can have somebody that unconditionally loves her, and that she thinks that she would never be sad again if she had a baby.

It makes me weary of trying to get close to new people, in case they turn out just as batshit.
