It's not a nice feeling isn't it.
is almost definitely considered anti-social, probably even more so during group discussions.
Just a heads up from your old pal limmers
automatically generates these thread titles for you?
The strange angst when you make the tea for somebody and last time it was a little bit too little bit too milky.
Not wanting to press send on an email because you've hyphenated more than three words and the recipient might be under 27.
Shop assistants being really helpful and making the atmosphere unnecessarily tense.
The unbearable lightness of being.
(Sorry wainbobs. I wish you the best with getting to grips with your shizz, but hip left an open goal and tbf tbh you've deffo developed your own daily thread niche.)
in a group of my girlfriend's friends who brought their partners with them. The girls sat in the kitchen drinking wine and I was sat with these blokes talking about Marvel films to each other. I have literally nothing to add to a discussion about comic books so felt a right lemon.
with 3 people about space travel and the possibility of mining from asteroids and its profitability, or something like that. I sat there for 30 mins with nothing to add. Felt like a turd.
Then I found myself in a deep political discussion with some other people. That wasn't as terrible and I managed to say a few head-nodding things, but it was still quite bad on the whole.
sometimes I feel like I don't know anything about anything. I just have very, very general viewpoints about some things. I'm more into talking about feelings and stuff than going on and on about specialist-yet-topical facts and knowledge (which as a student I feel I should know a lot more about, and feel guilty/embarrassed for not). And sometimes I just think 'well yeah but you could've said all that in much more brevity and with far less technical terms and inaccessible language, and arrive at the same conclusion.'
It's just embarrassing because everyone else usually has at least something to contribute and half the time I'm that awkward person who just says nothing and nods his head.
students having an alleged deep understanding of topical events is usually a tiresome trait of wrong 'uns who ought to do more cider-drinking and less guardian-reading.
it's like I'm at uni to get an education, not show that I've already got one
and drinking cider ofc
getting halfway through one of those overlong, naval-gazing, solipsitic posts from some whiner unwilling to try and improve their life, only complain about their perceived lot, and knowing you'll never get that time back, ever
Hang in there in_wainbows. I know that sometimes your day is long and the night is yours alone. But when you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on, alright?

Surely just ask, right? Then you would. If they think less of you for it, they are flat out twats.
Or of course you could just leave and get crunk.
I'm over opinonated even about shit I know nothing about
Its all the same stuff anyway
"Mining asteroids. That's just like that Simpsons episode where Ned Flanders sings Que Sera Sera! Has anyone else ever watched The Simpsons? I LOVE THAT SHOW!"
Works every time, and you get to choose the next conversation topic.
surefire conversation point, which is the sum of all knowledge you have on the topic of discussion.
You wait patiently for your chance, the conversation skirts around your sub point but you can never find the opportune moment. You got to pick up a drink or something and then someone else brings up your point leaving you with nothing.
Joey ends up buying one volume of an encyclopaedia from either Penn or Teller and then trying to talk about things that start with a 'V'.
