give good advice on matters such as relationships, careers and health issues?
It's a bit weird, no?
in case he^ answers
I'm not !
People ask such questions in order to be reassured that their porblems are not isolated. Also, the expected put-downs and comic responses can lighten the bad feelings and lessen the effect of the problem.
getting your problems out in the open and gaining sympathy and stuff, and partly that we are all quite intelligent. Also, out of the large amount of people here there are bound to be people who've experienced the same or similar situations to your current one.
yes. Look! A sensible answer! I can also talk about mams though if anyone wants to take this down a notch. I'm multi-talented.
With some exceptions, we're all around a similar-ish age bracket. Plus we all have an interest in similar types of music, and by extension (I've notcied) films, comedy series, books etc.
So we probably have quite similar views on things. Based on that, it's quite natural to seek opinions of people like yourself.
Do you not think that Cadd's, Lyle's and creaky's views are not as important, if not more so?
It wasn't meant to come across as such.
I think their views are equally important and often very interesting. I wouldn't say they're more important though.
creaky makes the point about experience. Although he is slightly joking, if one person has encountered many of the problems and has had subsequent time to view them unemotionally then they would be able to offer a different perspective then a peer.
that doesn't make them more important though
But not necessarily more important than the views of others.
is more important than another.
Some might be more relevant on certain situations ( but never mine anyway...)
don't be silly
also you forgot you
you're an idiot.
I've quite often thought this.
he's funny and into pies and cider and shit. BUT he's into mams.
What should I do? Should I invest in surgery? OH HELP ME DiS!
Take that back. This is about me right? Or do I got a twin?
ok problem solved >>> NO LONGER INTERESTED.
I can learn to embrace the shit, if that's what it takes. i don't want to miss out on you again. I've spent two years getting over it from the first tim :(
invest in surgery
I'm going to go start a thread and find out
if you wanted PROPER advice i have no idea where you'd go though. Maybe ask that woman in the Sun..if you're lucky you'll get a photostory too. wowsers
imagine photostories of most of the problems posted here. DiSers are all great photo actors, and some of them look good in a bra when wondering about their cheating husband.
can ask my mum if you like? She's very good.
a lot of the problems/situations that some of the people on here are going through at the moment will have already have happened to others, and they would like a bit of advice from someone who has managed to get past whatever problem it was that was affecting them.
No more weird than say, asking where the word 'cock' comes from. (sorry Bamos, love you)
Damn you! it was puzzling me all weekend.
i hate you :(
Your name was the first into my head and that's what I thought of.
has someone given you a bum steer? If you need advice please PM me. I am old. I am wise. I am a shamen.
DiS for advice for problems should I?
you big liar
from people with no alterior motives.
friends would be mmore careful about what they say than people might on here, so the advice is probably better because it avoids constraints of friendship.
contrary to popular belief, people on the internet are actually real people, and when i have a problem and i dont have the internet handy, I tend to ask real people.
so there you go.
it's a social forum and part of socialising is sharing stuff?
we're all e-friends here. well i'm not, but "you" all are
i should go to bed
basically the same answer over and over again.
down there vvv
it's a pretty anonymous way to talk about things, therefore for some issues it may be easier.
I've met some of you so I feel I can never ask any advice.
I've been close....
I sometimes envy the people who don't know anyone on here, I'd possibly post more stuff if I didn't. I do love you all though, OBVS.
..as my friends ALL have their ideas about what i should do, and adapt advice accordingly, even when it's definitely not in my best interest.
by the time ive read to the bottom of a thread ive forgotten what it was about anyway and just end up making rubbish puns, i think thats what most people do.
what was the question again?
pun your rubbish!
on your face
now that creakyknees has taught me
But they think some of the numerous answers might be relevant as there is many different points of view.
many points of view. everyone gives the same advice.
you don't read threads properly...
don't have a face
although personally its zxcvbnms monkeys I cant stand
they get a wide range of views, then pick the one that best suits what they want to hear
Better than answers.com as someone said the other day.
and the great monds will come together and answer the question.
I can understand when people ask for relationship advice, or silly advice, or technical advice, general knowledge etc...
...but the health advice? Ring bloody NHS direct! Go to your doctors! If we had a handful of nurses and doctors then I may understand it more.
And careers? There's services for that too, which are likely to be a hell of lot more accurate/useful.
AND anyway, can no-one make their own decisions anymore!?
srsly i think its just making conversation during boring work hours
I would question the careers advice bit
where I submit every decision I face to DiS.
Shall I have another mince pie?
but not through your mouth
I do know someone who has kept every text message he's ever received on a big colour co-ordinated computerised database, all in the name of 'art'.
One day in the Tate Modern, you too might be able to see the words 'Thanks for that Alan Wicker' on a 11' x 11' canvas.
Every single one of those badboys is a nugget of amusement. Here's his most recent (besides yesterday's "Yo La Tengo? I hate you":
"Once again I'm in trouble with my only friend, the fireworks go bang! Bang! Bang! B-b-bang! Whooshybang!"
I love Moribund's texts.
DiS is good for advice in general.
END OF (said in the voice of craig from big brother)
its much more valuable to have the individual stories and experiences of a hundred people than a careers advisor.
a combination of both would be best tho.
the opinion of 100 laymen is superior to that of 1 alleged expert.
never liked you anyway, you ugly bastard.
might read that book one day, sounds pretty interesting.
question I ask on here is in the desperate hope that someone can give me a definitive answer that I can cling to. Hoping against hope that a random from a messageboard knows the exact answer to my problem.
I think I speak for everyone here when I say that
and wait for it to go away at it's own apce.
I shouldn't confuse him
I just don't know what to do!
That's what I usually do.
you and your crazy remedies....
i find it best to introduce their natural preditors to your scalp.
but I'm LICE-FREE, BABY.
Im riddled with them I have several different types too, Im like the serenghetti
