View Full Version : Why do people even bother trying to pretend they're not assholes?

I don't understand. If they're not openly being jerks, then they get on their high horse and pretend like they're actually any better than anyone else. People are assholes, period. Everyone knows it so why bother trying to pretend otherwise? You only end up looking worse for it when you try to tell someone off for being salty, while probably thinking "lol this retard n00b just needs to kill himself" or something. It's a fucking moba. I know better than to think anybody's actually a decent person here.

Point in case. You probably act all high and mighty in games, and here you are making fun of me. Mock me more, thanks.

No it's a legitimate question. Why do people bother pretending to be nice?

I was joking. I see you are having a bad day. Please go vent in the Vent Thread. Also, lighten up a little, its just a game. Focus on the game and not the people out to ruin your day.

Because humans suck.

People are gonna be annoying... It's the Internet, the place where the mentality is you're right and no one else is.

It's extremely far-fetched theory in my opinion, but when thinking about it, maybe people in general are better than worse yet they pretend otherwise because of Internet anonymity abuse?

As someone who was born with an unselfish heart and due to that heart SUFFERING greatly through out my life.

I'm going to tell you that you are wrong.

You clearly know nothing of humanity if you think every single human is a selfish prick.

My life has been hell and I've been abused in more ways than one because of the fact that I could not muster up the will to be selfish.

You are wrong.

You do not know every last human being on the planet so you cannot make such a heinous call.

In all seriousness, I've been just playing with you a bit with the images. I have a somewhat cruel sense of humor, so take it with that. Also, lighten up, will ya? Don't take everything seriously.
Oh, and:


Thanks, you're great.

Tell me something I don't know. :cool:

But in all seriousness, not everyone is a complete asshole. Everyone partially is/can be one, I can be one as well, but I'm never afraid to apologise if I am one. So if you have taken my previous post too serious, I apologise for being an asshole.

But overall, there are a lot of people who are nice, usually I am a helpful and nice guy as well... Well, if I am not fooling around, because as I said, I have a cruel sense of humor, so yeah...

Are you saying in real life, or in the videogame?

Don't worry, I am pretty sure it's a feeling that has happened to pretty much everyone at some point in their lives. You'll get better!
Also, consider one important thing: YOU are people too.

I think in every person there's the potential to be a tremendous tool, or to be a generally decent human being. Some days you can rise above w/e is bothering you, and treat others well, and other days you say things you might be later ashamed of.

It's called being human. I won't claim to be perfect, but I mean I'm not going around stomping on flower beds, and stealing candy from babies for fun. And you can't really say every human ever has been nothing a prick, I mean look at Mr.Rogers. That dude was a mega saint.

I guess I don't care about my mother, or father. I guess my heart wasn't ripped out when my gram gram, grampa, and dearest cousin died. I guess I didn't almost slip into depression when my brother got charged with a 25 year sentence in one city, and then because we was from another city; the city he was from gave him another 25 fucking years ontop of that. I guess I wasn't really going ballestic when no one told me my gram gram had a heart attack before she died or my mother had a stroke.

Since no one actually cares about anyone else.

"Rarely anyone cares about someone outisde their family". Does that sound more correct?

I have a friend who has freely given me $200 worth of pastel, papers, and a wacom because he knows I can't always buy supplies. Friends who out of the goodness of their heart bout me lunch and asked nothing in returns. Professors who taken me out to eat, hell TWICE a professor helped me stay in school because I wouldn't have money to play for that semester (this semester being the second) on time. Hell, that same professor is even the reason I was able to get into a show at the mammal gallery last September. None of this is his job, his job is to teach me when I'm in his class. This is all stuff they did because they cared, the same way I gave a friend of mine my last few hundred dollars (when I had a stipend) because his truck broke down and he needed it to help fix it so he could go to work. The same friend I might add, who months before came all the way to Atlanta from where he was staying just to take me grocery shopping. To add onto that clusterfuck, this was a friend I knew and had last seen IN MIDDLE SCHOOL/sixth grade. Who found me through facebook only about a year before, and we only got to meet up again once or twice before.

So if people outside of family don't care, they are damn sure good at hiding it. I must be, especially when you I go to work for a charity organization on Christmas when I go back home, and I don't even celebrate the holiday.

there are people in this world who are complete assholes, but saying everyone is, family or not is pure ignorance. Hell anyone who knows me on a personal level will tell you, if I can, I will help you. Hell I have a old college roommate who literally lived with me for over a year free of rent. I let him stay because I know he was having troubles. That would be no different than me calling all Europeans or Caucasians racist or black haters.

I don't believe the moronity level has changed as much as people think it has, the only thing that has really changed is now the world's can actually see it now compared to pass gen that were just as stupid but could keep it local.

It has actually been proven that we live in the generation with less crimes and more cultured than ever before. However, saying that this generation is worse than the one before is a trend that repeats and repeats.

Btw, this thread looks quite trolly :P. I am not an asshole. I am selfish yes, but i am not an asshole. Idk whether this is about smite or rl. In smite i believe that we need to focus on the enemies. The moment people start attacking allies is the moment I stop wanting to play, and i always try to interfere to make people focus on the enemies. When someone is playing badly they know. Their own mind is already punishing them and making them play worse. If on top of that other players start shouting crap, it becomes a downward spiral. They feel worse hence they play worse and feed which on turn makes it even harder next time. I have been playing bad and had someone from my team saying nice job, and you rock still when i did nice plays. That helped a lot getting out of the i suck mentality, and playing to win. Sometimes people forget that it is not a robot playing a god in smite. There is a person behind it. The way the god plays is not only affected by the player's skill, but also by the way they feel.

In rl, i know some people that are so freaking selfless that sometimes you need to stop them and tell them to think of themselves. My girlfriend is in that group. She is a good reason why i need to be selfish :P. If you think everybody is an asshole, you will treat them like they were. Therefore, they will act like assholes to you. It is a self-fulfilling prophesy.
