my girlfriend of many months does not love me and i'm pretty sure the only reason she hasn't broken up with me is so she doesn't disappoint her parents. No one ever gives me compliments but my mom... very rarely. i love coming home to this wallpaper so i feel like someone cares about me

thats what im trying to do, but honestly im probably just going to get a technical and move someplace else.

I dont even want to draw or write or create anymore. I havent for a long time. Im just wondering if this is it for me.
Maybe ive burnt out what my life had to offer, and I passed on the good oppertunities ive had so many times that ive got none left.

Sorry, ive been drinking, im just rambling.
Have this paper, makes me feel at peace somehow.

its not about science or all the famous people.

what makes me post this is the question what they would have to say if they could see us now.
same as our grandfathers who fought wars for us.
so much pain and hard work.

and now we care more about posting selfies than to guarantee the rights they accomplished just for us.

im a german fag and last thursday the german government passed a statute which allows to officially spy with a trojan almost without restrictions.

I would really like to join my country's air force, but most people in my family would like me to join my country's gendarmerie/mp because of family tradition and MAYBE a little better pay(it doesn't change that much between branches tho)

One time last year (the worst year of my life in terms of mental health - near suicidal like), I was alone in my room, listening to my music on shuffle, feeling really blue and texting my closest friend about my issues. I often feel like I'm a worthless person because I'm not living at the standards of other college kids around me. I don't even want to, but my terribly low self-esteem tells me that I'm a pathetic loser for not doing so.
Anyway. My friend says something obvious about how it doesn't matter what other people are doing as long as I'm content with my own life, and how, regardless of other people, she will always be there for me; she will always be my friend and never judge me for being myself.
As she was saying this, my music put on Bridge Over Troubled Water and I broke down in tears. Whenever I hear the song now I remember my friend and our conversation and that period of my life.

You suck, someone has to say it so it might as well be me. Ignore the people who tell you they love you. It's shallow and meaningless, at the very least, to hear "I love you" from a complete stranger that doesn't know even know your name if not downright insulting.

Find out why you suck and make yourself better. Make yourself valuable to other and others will love you.

Don't go back to drinking dude, it's only gonna make your life go worse. If their isn't any tech jobs (assuming this is what your doing just because it makes money like most people in that degree) you should do something that actually makes you feel happy. Whatever your dream is, even if it seems impossible why not go for it? Becoming an alcoholic is gonna be much worse than failing your dream or being dumped. Trust me. That nigga probably was gay af anyway (Pape for anons who could get mad for not posting one)

My best friend and I live across the country from each other, we've been apart for over 5 years now. We send wallpapers back and forth to each other so that when we get home and log on, we each see the same thing the other is seeing. This is our wallpaper for this month.

>>
>>6956038
>>6956383

The show was slow at the start but once it got over the hump at about like episode 10-12 things just started moving fast, the characters weren't forced (before anime became one big inside reference) and it was a generally fun show, western, noir, old-school sci-fi, all the cool shit that was pretty much pozzed by the 90's got one last decent hoorah in that show.
If you got an evening binge it, most of it is literally build up for its last 8 episodes. But its worth it.

I don't really know how to say this, but when I was a kid I went skiing in the Alps, and seeing the top of the mountains, standing right under those very peaks, woke an immense feeling of excitement and adventure in me that I have never felt again in my mundane, boring, wasted life.

>Went through college with people who hang out with high school friends
>Mechanical engineering - went the learning route and had no time past sleeping 8 hour nights

>Go to national competition after 1 calendar year
>Had to leave early (before end celebration) because project manager told me I'd be in danger
>Took his word on the credible, non-specific threat(law enforcement lingo)

spent entire trip alone (driving 1500 miles included) and hated all but the stop on the way back I did at a brewery

>had panic attack returning to campus 2 months later

they opened pandoras box.

and they hided the passage of the bill in another bill (announced only 4 days before decision day) to avoid permission of our federal council. this is a serious fraud.

a trojan using sofware gaps is placed on your computer/smartphone tapping your communication before encryption. the tool is extremely powerful. can download other files onto your computer. can use microphone, cams,... (way more than constitutional court has allowed)

the pretended reason is terror defence but with a special case authorization this was possible before. they used it not even ten times without any help for catching those motherfuckers. btw we knew about all bombers/drivers in germany way before attack(also where they lived and so on).

it was restricted on defence against terrorism, now when your neighbour commit tax fraud it is enough to spy on you (reminds me of patriot act II). they also partially skipped judicial decision. no control mechanism for the controllers btw.

brave new fucking world.

so when there is a software gap which the government uses, they will insist on not closing it. invitation for other hackers. at least the willingness to tell about gaps will decrease without doubt.

you are a political opponent? hey, lets copy some cp onto your computer. or just read your documents. or change them.

i do not belief this was made without a hidden agenda but even when so. sooner or later this tool will fuck up our lives. just think about the current ignorance(alexa, google home,...).

Hate seeing so many people so down in the dumps. There are too many people so sad all the time, i really do hate it. But the two things I have always said to myself, and its always seemed to work; Be happy not sad, and, If you are unhappy with something in your life, go out and fix it. Dont sit around and be sad, be happy. Go find a new job if the one you are at isnt any fun. Go out and meet people. Go back to school and get that degree. Go to the gym if you think you could lose a couple pounds. Feeling good about youself imporves live drastically. You feel so much more confident in everything you do. Practice makes perfect. Dont ever let anyone tell you that you are worthless and cant acheive what you want to. Fuck them. Be what YOU want to be. Its your life, you have to take the chances. Not everything will come your way, you have to go out there and hunt for what you want. Just like a lion. Be the hunter!

Thats why this has and always will be my favorite wall paper. The lion is a majestic thing.

BE HAPPY. BE BETTER.

If you know what game this is from, then you probably have a good idea of what this can mean to someone. The short version is that a man blinded by vengeance and fear of his own lack of humanity, just hurt someone very dear to him without knowing it. Hearing their final words but not listening to what they mean. He then monologues to himself that he and those like him are a living symbol of everything wrong with the world. But he's speaking of his reason for vengeance, while blind to the actions he committed in that moment. Only understanding half of what his words meant.

Basically the idea of awareness of one's own actions and how badly they can hurt you and everyone around you is a concept that I like to keep in the back of my mind.

I never understand this one. At first I thought it was like a "modern presidents are shit and throwing away what the founders intended" but then why does Bush Jr. look so concerned? Why is Taft looking smug in the background? If "trampling on rights" is meant to be the message why is Nixon in the back looking on in disgust. Why is TR clapping? It seems like the artist didn't think out what could have been a really interesting painting.

I love this one.
I see life as a bunch of moments. When you get old or whatever happens, your going to look back on your life and your not going to remember going to work, school or uni everyday. You might remember a routine but not the experience exactly. What we do remember, what stays with us throughout our lives are small peices of great times: Moments.
These are immune to time, they dont fade they machure like wine. A moment might be the first time you met a loved one, an amazing night out etc. To me this wallpaper is capturing the middle of a moment. I imagine the camera man saying "hey wait a minute" as the girl laughs and then he puts the camera down after a picture and continues on laughing and running with her.
To me there is no greater feeling in the world when you realise in the middle of a moment that it is one, you realise your going to remember this. Like a lucid dream, you have awareness. I think this shot represents that single moment of blissfull awareness.
I learnt this a while back, so I made it my goal to be aware through these so I can appreciate them more. Nearly a year ago now. These were the best times of my life, but you know what I learned? no matter how aware you are, or prepared or reflective. Once these moments pass, you will always think you didnt savour them enough. I`m not sure its ever possible to really 100% enjoy them, regret is inevitable. My life has slowed now, Its changed and stayed the same in the worst ways. I reflect a lot, its my way of escaping . I think what truly makes these "moments" so amazing is the fact they are still frames from a fast paced none stop film. People running in and out of your life, you rushing through different stages of your own eager to get to the next one. Its all fast but within these quick fleeting plots of life, you are left with a few photos capturing the best or worst times. To me this photo is one of them, a still frame of someones memory, reminds me of my own.

I always enjoy looking up at the clouds and tracing all of their outlines. the almost cartoon-ish textures sometimes pull me into awe that I forget I'm currently observing reality as I gaze into their vast reach across the sky. I really like this pape because the reaper reminds me to be humble as I gaze up. it keeps me in a twilight zone between the feeling of being grounded to the earth and the feeling of being stolen away into the vast clouds across the sky. I feel as if I can accomplish anything if I stay calm, collected, and humble.

If she will never have you again, accept it and respect her desire for her own happiness, even if that means it is specifically without you.

been diggin the feels, friends.
Dyingllama is a youtube channel that does a lot of urban exploration in London.
I like his stuff for a few reasons. His material is stuff only an overly cocky young guy could make. It's audacious in a way that's admirable and blind. It also has nearly a cyberpunk aesthetic that I dig in a major way. I haven't done urban ex in a while, but some of those experiences were really formative for me, and I enjoyed watching someone else do it, too. I also like the way he occasionally brushes past some real important ideas but constantly employs meme-y rhetoric.

Do you have a memory, a time in your life that was so happy, that when you look back on it now, it makes you cry? Partially out of how beautiful the memory is, but also out of sorrow for how dim the present shines in comparison? That is how I feel about when I was in this show.

I'm 26 years old. I've never had a friend at all. I'm still a virgin. I make $10.50/hr, have no idea what I want to do with my life and while I have decent social skills, I have nothing to talk about with other people, no real passions or drives whatsoever. I'm not even really that sad, I just feel very empty inside, but I'm acutely aware of the fact that I'm not enjoying my life, that other people ARE, and that I'm running out of time.

I just can't relate to other people. Even when someone shares something personal with me that is something similar to what I've experience, I don't really *care.* Theres no emotion, no feeling, just numbness.

I honestly have no idea how some people can be so happy and seem to be enjoying things on a frequent basis. I have a coworker who's always smiling, always laughing, always telling jokes, and I just want to ask him "what the fuck are you smiling for?"

>>6970238
I've been self aware of my social disconnect for years, and I've taken steps to try and improve myself. 2 years of therapy that amounted to absolutely nothing, going out and asking out women a lot (no success though - I think they can sense the mental issues within me). Only thing I haven't tried yet is antidepressants but I've heard a lot of nightmare stories about them.

At this point I'm honestly convinced there may be something physiologically wrong with me, some kind of brain damage that could be revealed with a proper MRI, which I plan to get the moment I am able to afford it. My mother's water broke early and I was deprived of oxygen for about 2 minutes during my birth and I'm wondering if it didn't leave the part of my brain responsible for emotions somewhat damaged.

I don't even know what I would do if that were actually the case though. I mean, on one hand it's a relief since I would now know that my issues don't stem from me just being a fuck up or incompetent or whatever, but on the other hand I'm pretty sure issues like that aren't exactly able to be cured.
>>
>>6970241
not everything is meant to be cured, you already coping with it, not whilst being happy, but just being conversing and realizing stuff is a way of living also. When you have carrots you eat carrots. Sometimes we forgot how meaningful experiences we experience, due to our tendency to focus on the negatives. Your life is your answer, no one is going to help you better than yourself.

>slander: (noun) The action or crime of making a false spoken statement damaging to a person's reputation.

There was nothing false about the Watergate allegations. Saying he was slandered implies that he didn't deserve to be vilified. I will back off, though, since I seem to have misunderstood what you were trying to say, and it seems we might agree that Watergate has pushed his genuine accomplishments out of the narrative.

I first saved this from /wg/ in 2011. It was the first kind of positive message that really moved something in my angsty little heart. My life has changed and grown dramatically since then and I'm so thankful for how gnarled the path has been. But each time I see this pic in my folder I am reminded of being 17 and worried about my tiny problems. It's become almost nostalgic in a way because my problems in life now are my marriage, preparing to become a father, and pursuing faith once more. I hope that this message will reach one of you out in the void and help you on your way. Remember that, though the waves are tumultuous and the brine is stinging, you are never alone on the ocean. I love you for your heart and your mind anon and want the best for you.

On one hand, i definitely see what worries you. Society is changing and what is considered normal now can just as well be considered insanity caused by constant pressure to prove yourself to others.

On the other hand, this "corruption" of who we are could only be achieved by a society which is free and happy. The effect might be horrific, but the cause is actually happiness. In a twisted sense, you could say that the happiness that these people created is the reason many people feel like society is going to shit.

It's all in the experience you want your life to have. If you want to say "I tried and that's that," then do it. There's always a fallback.
If you're okay with dropping something you've wanted for so long, then take the safe option. Just remember that what you choose makes the person you want to be and the future you want to have.

You may recognise this photo but can’t quite place where you saw it - but the chances are you stared it at every day for years.

The picture - known as ‘Bliss’ - was the default computer wallpaper of the Microsoft Windows XP operating system, and if you ever owned a PC over the past few years, then you will have seen it the first time you ever booted it up.

It is a fair estimate to say that upwards of a billion people have seen the picture, that is a

And while the idyllic countryside view with its lush green fields and brilliant blue skies may look like it’s been digitally enhanced or even a complete product of a talented Photoshopper, Bliss is anything but.

The man behind the shot is National Geographic photographer Charles O’Rear, who was taking a drive through the Napa Valley in San Francisco in 1996 to meet up with his girlfriend Daphne - who would later become his wife.

This was no one-off trip - O’Rear would drive this way from his home in Sonoma, California, every Friday but this day he was looking for a picture to include in a book he was working on about wine country.

Default: Bliss was the main wallpaper for anyone using Windows XP (YouTube)

Along the way he saw a stretch of field that had none of the usual vineyards and so he pulled over his car, to get a closer look.
>>
>>6968714
He recalled: “I got out, took a couple of pictures, and kept on going. And the rest is history.”

And what a history that was - O’Rear had no idea at the time that his quick stop for a “couple of pictures” soon defined a whole era for computer owners.

As it happened, despite the striking and serene look Bliss never actually made it into O’Rear’s book so he instead made it available through Corbis, a stock photo company that photographers used to license their shots.
>>
>>6968714
And it wasn’t until 2000 that Microsoft - whose chief executive Bill Gates happened to own Corbis - decided to get in touch with the photographer, telling him they wanted to pay him for the license to use the shot.

O’Rear said: “I have no idea what they were looking for.

”Were they looking for an image that was peaceful? Were they looking for an image that had no tension?”

Quick stop: Photographer Charles O’Rear captured the shot while on a drive (Wikipedia)

If that is what they were looking for, then they had certainly found it in Bliss, and the firm were so adamant about using the picture that they wanted to buy all the rights to use it - and not just for use as its default wallpaper.

O’Rear was reportedly paid one of the largest payments ever made to a photographer for a single image - though the exact figure has never been revealed as he signed a confidentiality agreement keeping the number a secret.

To give you an idea of how much money was involved, Microsoft wanted the original film sent to them but delivery companies refused to transport it as the value was more than their insurance would cover.

As a result, Microsoft instead bought a plane ticket to Seattle for O’Rear to personally hand deliver the film to them.

After that, the picture soon started to become instantly recognisable, used on Microsoft’s marketing for XP and every person - around a billion who bought the operating system - who switched on their brand new computer for the first time was faced with the picture perfect scene.

Microsoft XP was retired in 2014 and the picture still remains a part of popular culture - but what does the place where Bliss was taken look like today?

Bliss as it looks today: The scenery has changed over the past 20 years (Rex)
>>
>>6968714
Located on Highway 12 in Sonoma County, photographers who have made pilgrimage to the area have found that the scenery that gave Bliss its name is no longer quite the way it used to be.

The lush green grass has been replaced by grape crop that is used to make the wine the Napa Valley is famous for.

Farm equipment, rosebushes and a house now make the area not quite as recognisable as the sight seen on millions of PCs since the early 2000s.

Sceptics who believe the original image has been altered or spliced together from several different photos have used the scenery based at the location today as proof.

However, O’Rear is adamant that his shot was not altered.

He maintained: “I didn’t ‘create’ this. I just happened to be there at the right moment and documented it.”

Sometimes you just can’t explain magic.

Anon, I think your inherent desire to experience that moment again could be symptomatic of why you're unhappy in life. I'm reading very deeply into a couple sentences; but hear me out. You will never feel that feeling again unless you seek out a new experience.
In essence, don't rehash, discover.

I might dump a few.

Star Wars has always been a huge part of my life, mostly because it in a way is a manifestation of my relationship with my Dad. My Dad is the kindest-hearted and noble man I've ever known. Ever since he was a child he loved Star Wars, and passed his love of the films on to me as I grew. He wanted to be a pilot, but was denied. My mother at one time almost left him for another man, but he pulled through. I didn't realize how amazing of a person my dad was until I became a teenager. He's always been there for me, encouraging, guiding, and supporting me along the way. I see myself in him, and he sees himself in me. He wants me to succeed in life where he couldn't. He sees opportunity for me. I'm his only hope.

I call him every day and talk about Star Wars with him, our mutual love for a timeless cinema classic.

High School is a trying time for everyone. It's a weird melting pot of people from all walks of life trying to find their place in the world. I had one friend who was an underclassman. it was one of those friendships where you could openly joke with eachother. One where you were always welcome over eachother's houses. Every weekend we would meet at his place with food and play vidya. I was kinda like a mentor to him in a way. I helped him through tough times.
We used to watch anime or cartoons together. Our favorites were Dragonball and Samurai Jack. We maintained contact even when I graduated. We got to watch the premier of every episode of Season 5.
That last episode kinda touched me. I saw it as the peaceful death of my childhood and the entrance of a new chapter in my life. After the episode, we bid our goodbyes as always. My friend was sad I had to return to college for a bit but I told him I'd always come back to see him for his graduation this year.

He never got to graduate. Drunk driver. It still feels like yesterday.

I live a modest ways away from my hometown. Every few months I go and visit. I hate traveling during the day, so I like to go at night. I put on Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon (an album that means very much to me) and drive down the empty roads, illuminated by streetlamps through the fog. Eventually I make it to the long, open country roads, far from most cities. Everything is dark. Everything is quiet. Nothing but you, the car, the dark world around you. There in that solace can you truly feel the music become something more.

I used to be in scouts. I made some of the most memorable experiences of my life, along with some good friends. I'll forever remember the stories we shared, adventures we had, joke we told, and songs we sang. I was know for my Harmonica that i would play by the fire as my friends sang hobo songs they learned, our favorite was "The Big Rock Candy Mountain". I still have the Harmonica and can remember the words fondly. It's a shame we all went our separate ways, but I'm sure we'll always remember the good times we had.

There's something inherently magical about Snow as a child. Waking up in the night to utter silence, looking out to see the blanketed land and against the dark hazy sky. I loved when the snow on the ground was seemingly brighter in contrast to the sky itself. Everything was so still and serene but all the same jovial, like a painting. The only other word I can think to describe it is solemn.

Video games, like most of us, have been an integral part of my life. They make us happy and bring us fun. However, the game that brought me to love the genre was the one game that made me feel sad.

It's no question Majora's Mask is a dark game. As a child most of the games I played were happy and joyful, but Majora showed me the other side of things. It was frightening, creepy, and made me uneasy. And for that I loved it. It was the game that taught me that the world can be a scary place sometimes; and that we've all, in one way or another, have met with a terrible fate.

That's enough for tonight. See you around.

ive been trying to quit porn for 3-4 months now. one time around june, i hadn't fapped in 8 days. i remember it so well, i was cycling past the cemetery, with the trees over me, bright green leaves brushed by the wind. the sky was blue. the sun was shining. no one was around. and i felt this happiness. Because i wasn't numbing myself anymore to the world i lived in.

but its the night that gets me. to gaze up at that void of infinity and think of the insignificance of all my problems while i've been staring at the ground. to take it all in, and yet not even comprehend the size of it all. there was another time after exams that i was on holiday in turkey - hadn't fapped in 5 days. it was 2am and there was no one at the beach. i got my phone, headphones, and went down to the shore. god it was beautiful. i looked up and felt. I felt things i haven't felt in a while. Started dancing, i know, sounds like a weirdo, but it was the most freeing thing i've done.

i still look up at the nightsky whenever i can.
