Interesting

not mine

One of the great things
about the human mind
is its ability to learn from experience.
Based on only a handful of observations
we can draw conclusions about things
we have never seen before.
We quickly conclude
that a chair is
judging from its '
There is no need for us to thoroughly
analyze every aspect
of a song
to know it' s
a rock song.
it is in our nature to categorize and make
general assumptions based on previous
similar observations.
That is why we have to try so hard
not to do it with
people.

This hit me really hard. When I was about 12, I was being bullied by a group of Hispanic kids. This is the only time I had ever seen a Hispanic person, and the encounters left the thought in my head that all Hispanics were inherently bad, and that the countries they're from must be really bad places. I was fortunate enough to find a nice one before I did something stupid.

not the same. this is more like "god there's so much litter here! What? Help pick up? Naw that's for other people."
User avatar #138 to #136 - randomserb (09/13/2013) [-]
No, it's not. Him posting content does not stop the "litter" from being there.
#145 to #138 - kuroking (09/13/2013) [-]
Better Content= Litter Stuck in Newest Uploads. for instance. not as many miley posts on fp. they're still here. but just overshadowed by other content.

You're one in tens of thousands. You're not going to make a significant difference.
Unless you post like crazy, which people also seems to dislike. Take phanact, for instance. I'd imagine he likes what he posts, and he thinks he's adding to the site by doing that. Yet people hate him for it and consider his content litter.
In the end, you come to the site not to enjoy your own content, but to enjoy that of others. Every once in a while you contribute, but mostly you just skim through that of others. To make a reference to music again, artists don't listen to their own music like we, the consumers, listen to their music. They listen to other music by other artists of their liking. In this way, posting content doesn't add to your enjoyment of content on the site.

if everyone said "im one in tens of thousands" there wouldnt be any content in the first place. And if you never try you'll never know.

We're talking about individual enjoyment of content here, not about the big picture.
Your original point was that he should post content if he doesn't like what's on the table, my point was that posting content wouldn't improve his enjoyment of content. Please stay on topic in a discussion, and rebut my point if possible.
#152 to #150 - kuroking (09/13/2013) [-]
jesus, man. you're really getting in to this. my point is that if your not going to try to get better content on fp, dont complain if you dont like whats on fp. i dont like debating on the internet. it's annoying and basically pointless

In my first couple weeks of high school, I got chosen to do a speech about stereotyping. I talked about not doing it even though it's hard because judging things on past appearances is in our nature. At the end I got more applause than I expected and felt like I should really practice what I preach. About twenty minutes after the end of that school day, I got mugged by four black guys because I refused to stereotype and cross to the other side with my friends

well yeah, its not fair to say sharks are mindless killing machines and that they should all be killed, but that doesnt mean you should go swimming with them covered in blood.

Not judging black people is fine, seeing a group of thugs coming at you and not taking precautions is just silly.

One great thing about the human mind is its ability to learn from experience....

few animals learn general rules that can be applied to nonsimilar situations.
