View Full Version : The advice thread experiment

Well, it's finally here, let's give it a try. Based on this other thread (http://www.offspring.com/community/showthread.php?t=45867) I came to the resolution of finally launching this experiment, and see how long does it last, and how will people react to this.

So, this thread serves the purpose of being a "support group" (maybe) and if you feel bored, ill, mad, whatever, you can share it here and maybe someone will give his/her insight about whatever it is you share here.

This thread is conceived to discuss about issues or situations whenever people needs someone to lend ears (or eyes) and help each other to carry on.

So, please, feel free to post about anything that concerns you, give it a shot! :cool:

My left testicle is bigger than my right, and it is lower than the right one. Is that abnormal?

I feel deeply sad... I don't know who to reach for this matter... but the guys of The Offspring have really hurt me with Cruising California... the song is awful, I just heard it 5 minutes ago, my face turned all serious, then I got mad, and now I'm deeply sad... how have you been able to cope with this? Because I don't know what to think or do. :eek:

It's normal for women to have a bigger boob than the other, (usually it's the left one, you freak!) but read the article I linked on response to Jojan, it can be serious...

At first listens, yes it's a terrible terrible song. But after 5-6 listens and if you still couldn't appreciate the song, I don't know. I'm even thinking this can be the best thing they put through in last decade. Maybe you can draw parallels between a highly comedic B-movie and Bumpin' in My Truck, but only I don't have any doubt that the latter will become one of the most famous 5 songs recorded by Offspring.

This is the only song I get after I type "bump" in my itunes search bar and that's just enough reason for me to adore it.

This thread is fucking gold.

Oh, on topic:

1. Testicles are lopsided to help with the cooling and sperm production. The varying sizes should be something to address, assuming it's a serious claim.
2. Everyone - literally everyone - knows that boobs are different sizes.
3. Take it to GOD, fags.

Nah, Baldwin is right:


This is the shittiest idea since wishomie's BBS pimp club. And since questioning your masculinity hasn't shamed you into shutting up about it, I'm going to explain why it's such an irredeemable abortion of an idea.

Firstly, general-purpose support groups are a shitty concept and don't work, because the drama-whores will devolve it into a pissing contest of who's got the worst life. Ever noticed how there's no such thing as "dying of a deadly disease support group"? No, they need to get ridiculously specific, and have separate spleen cancer support groups and stomach cancer support groups. Is it because there's a fundamental difference in the emotional baggage that comes with dying of spleen cancer, as opposed to dying of stomach cancer? No, it's because starting a nonspecific "Support Group" is paving a road to endless, eternal war. A war waged not with good old fashioned guns and bayonets, but with passive-aggressive comments and bad acting. A war that accomplishes nothing, and isn't even fun to watch.

Secondly, this is almost literally the worst place for a support group. There are worse places, I suppose (the Congo, perhaps), but unless you're from the Congo you could find a better place to whine about your feelings by literally just walking out your front door and talking to the first random person you see walking their dog. Aside from the trolling issue, any group you make is guaranteed to be dominated by two or three habitual attention-whores, with infrequent and tepid participation from anybody else. Basically you'll have a circle-jerk of less than a half-dozen people, and as any afficiondo of circle-jerking can tell you, it takes at least eight people to get a properly formed circle. Just type whatever your issues are into google, add "support" and your general location (not the Congo) and you'll find some sort of forum, or social group, or website, dedicated exactly to what you need. I guarantee it. I haven't googled "raped by a clown + support group + luxembourg" but I'm 99% positive that one exists, and is thriving.

Thirdly, as I said before, admitting you have problems is weak and womanly. Harden the fuck up and learn to cope with your crippling inadequacies in silence, like a real man.


It wouldn't work, so it's ok, I'm actually liking where is this thread going, it was an experiment :)

And yeah, maybe a group would be nice, but I don't feel like taking the lead there... maybe some other time.

I know I was cynical about the idea before, but now I genuinely need advice.

As some of you might know, I've been having a lot of financial difficulties lately. About a month ago I decided to rob and murder my elderly landlady. She was a horrible, greedy old bitch, and everybody hated her, so I figured I wasn't really doing anything that wrong. I spent about a week preparing and planning the murder. I distracted her with a gift-wrapped wooden block, and while she was trying to untie the ribbon I killed her with a hatchet, which I had concealed under my coat. She never saw it coming. Unfortunately, I was interrupted by her simple, but good-natured sister. I panicked and killed her too. It was horrible.

I ended up giving all the money away to the family of a passing acquaintance. It made me sick to look at it. I can't deal with the guilt and shame of it all. The police finished their investigation saying there are no suspects, but the lead detective knows that I did it. He keeps making excuses to visit me and drop hints. My sister, who I love more than anyone in the world, would be appalled if she knew what I've done. What should I do?

Try to refine your taste in literature and stop reading overrated classics. A man who enjoys modern literature is a rare find these days.

Yeah it's not yellow. It's iPunk. iPunk is just a really dumb, unfunny troll who posts bullshit and randomness and incoherence all over the board. And has made quite a few accounts after being banned each time, keeps trying to reincarnate itself with a different persona. I think most of the time, iPunk has been a girl... but I think there's been a few times that it was a guy? I'm not sure. It's also supposedly like 24 years old...

Yeah, I started this thread a half hour before I started drinking last night.


Probably the best response so far. I'll touch each subject lightly. I can't really diet. Granted, I've never tried, but I have a hard time telling when I'm hungry to begin with. I think putting a regimen in there would be a little pointless. A lot of people would probably disagree since it's a set time to eat a set food in a set amount, but I probably can't do it. I can't really maximize downtime and minimize stressful situations. I work six days a week. I go home to my daughter in need (we're working on potty training). Every Wednesday evening I get to see my lovely ex that fucked me over, cheated on me, and left me with a fuck-ton of burden. Thursday through Sunday, I sit around wondering what my daughter's doing and counting down the minutes until I get to see her again. No downtime. I legally can't escape the ex-stress. And I don't really drink all that much. One beer a week. Maybe.


I've bitten my nails off since I was four years old. I tried stopping. It's harder than you'd think. So I can't really use that as a stress scale.


There is way too much there to hone in on any one single thing. I could say yes to almost all of those. Then again, I feel like anyone can say yes to a lot of them.

http://www.offspring.com/community/showthread.php?t=45988

Andy is calling for help from the board, so I'm addressing his issues with stress to the right place, the advice thread experiment, or lame support group... please, share your thoughts. :cool:

Yellow seems like a much more respectable person for me now. TheJakes really annoys me (no offense intended Ms. Jake, but you'll probably take offense).



My grammar is high school shit.

You are kidding, right? I'm in Junior High (grade 9). My grammar is slightly worse than an intelligent grade 10 student, and way worse than an intelligent grade 12 student. I'd say that I have better grammar than you, and worse grammar than a high school student. I know I get high grades and finish at the top of my class and all, but you should have better grammar than me if you have graduated high school (which I assume you have). I wouldn't give you a hard time if you were from a non-English speaking country. You're from LA, which coincidentally can also stand for "Language Arts", the Canadian (and maybe American) name for "English" class from grades 1-9.

Huh, 9th grade in the US is high school... when do you start high school in Canada? And how many years is it?

Bud, your grammar is better than a lot of high schoolers. Just by reading your posts (and seeing your grammar), it seems clear that you're a good student. I wouldn't say your grammar is worse than a high school student at all. It might not be as good as a college-bound 12th grader, but you're better than the average.

iPunk has said in the past that she is 23 or so. Now she's saying that bad grammar is "original"... nope. It's not. It's just like the majority of uneducated Americans. "College or a University I can't qualified to study and earn a decent Ph.D." Hmm... sometimes I just legitimately think she's not actually American. A lot of her grammar mistakes sound like the mistakes a foreigner would make. I didn't get a PhD (don't plan on it, either... I have a bachelor's degree, and often consider going back to do my master's) and my grammar is pretty darn good. ;)

Elementary School: kindergarten, grades 1-6

High School: grades 10-12
This actually really differs from town to town. I have some cousins in Northern Alberta who start high school in grade 9. Most of the schools in my town and surrounding area go by what I highlighted in bold.

You want people to use your thread, then berate them for doing it wrong and not knowing how to use the multi-quote? Let me know how that works out for you.

First of all, you've been posting in other people's threads to tell people to post here (just as rude), and second of all, this thread would've been on page two ages ago if not for your persistence and the spam.

Why is everything always so damn serious in here? If I was complaining for real, I would write several profile messages to the "transgressors", as I did with you closing my other thread, or make a long post about it, I say a lot of things when I'm upset... and why would you ask me to let you know about how it works for me? How what works for me? I don't understand what you are saying here, but I get your condescending tone and your sense of "huh, this guy...", which is really uncalled for. Once again, I am not doing or saying anything to you, yet you come and moderate my opinions... btw, if you're moderating, you are very biased, if you're just posting as a regular user, you seem to unlike me, which is a shame...

Excuse me for my lack of internet "etiquette", I didn't know that joking/semi-trolling on other threads about this stupid thread would be as rude as you say...

I know that my advertising and the spam is keeping it alive, it is so amusing to me, it entertains myself, and it's an experiment, other things in this forum bore me or don't draw my attention... I don't know why you are telling me this, but ok.

You take a very negative attitude when anyone does anything counter to what you want, which doesn't make anyone feel inclined to be nice to you. There are certain behaviors I don't tolerate on the forum, and bullying people who are genuinely trying to participate in a discussion, whether or not they know how to use multi-quote or even the English language, is not okay.

If you want people to be nice to you, be nice to them. It's that simple.

is that your definition of genuinely trying to participate in a discussion? Coming from someone who has acknowledged to be a troll?


You were harsh, actually, but whatever.

Saying "shit" about random comments and saying "fucking" about my thread does not seem to me as insulting anybody.

And I apologized because it could be interpreted like it... I feel that I should start caring less about your opinions and conceptions...

Ok ok ok ok... from other threads and previous posts I understood she was a troll... maybe she isn't.

And yes, I think I am being super defensive, guess I'm trying too hard trying to have a conversation with you so I can convince you I am not a bad person.

I'll stop here.

I don't think the attitude toward iPunk is undeserved, honestly. Whether or not she's a troll, she's not nice and she's obnoxious. I don't care if she doesn't know how to use the multi-quote button, but she does plenty of things that are rude and obnoxious.

You may be right about that, but in my case, I really have no reason to show attitude to iPunk, she has never been rude to me, that's why I apologized.

You're cool btw.

So, now that this thread finally looks like dying, was it everything you hoped it would be?

You were told it would be a resounding failure, and you chose to make it anyway. Claiming it entertains you is clearly false, since you've all but ruptured your uterus in your pissy little attempts to force people to participate in the manner you want them to participate. Disclaiming it with "it's just an experiment" doesn't pass muster in this case, unless the 'experiment' was seeing how much of an annoying asshole you could be before people told you to shut the fuck up. Even then it's a pretty redundant experiment, since your past hissyfits have answered that question half a dozen times already.

So I guess my question is, are you going to invent some sort of unconvincing conclusion to your grand experiment and post your "findings" to try to convince us that you succeeded all along in discovering whatever the fuck you'll insist you were trying to discover, or are you going to admit that it was an ill-conceived mistake on your part, apologise to the good people of the forum for wasting their time, and bury this stillborn fucking abomination of a thread before you make yourself look even worse?

I didn't hope anything, it was just an experiment, I really wanted to see if people would man (or woman) up and share something, It seemed, at least based on my perception, that there were some people kinda having a bad time and maybe this site would help those people feel some sympathy or whatever from the users. I also came up with this because when I think about my motivation of posting here, I can never get to a conclusion, but I always get this sense of belonging and entertainment, I don't know how to say it, but it's nice, even if sometimes I get mocked and ridiculed. Can you tell me what is your motivation to come and post on this BBS? I don't believe it is because you're a troll and you like to be an asshole just because you can, because if it is the reason, you're definitely not the person you portray.

Are you telling me I should lose my individuality and do as people tell me to do? Everyone posts about what they want, why shouldn't I do the same? There are threads with 2 replies, or even none... that doesn't make the threads less legitimate, if you understand what I'm saying. And yes, it was an experiment, just like any other thread. About the annoying asshole, that is for you to judge and decide, but it really doesn't mean anything, because I know who I am and which are my intentions, there are people who get it and people who judge, like you. I never thought that my attempts of making people participate correctly would be taken seriously, I was actually hoping to be insulted, to contribute to the good fun, but alas I was ignored, until the moderatrix and you pointed out, cause anybody else seemed to have a problem with it.

To answer your question, no, I won't conclude anything, there was no hypothesis in this "experiment", I don't see the mistake, and if you are telling me I'm making people waste their time, well... then we are all wasting our time on this bbs. :)

People have been asking for advice here for years. It's totally normal, and there's no "manning up" involved. It makes no sense, however to make a thread for advice. It's awkward, it's forced... and if multiple people post asking for advice, it instantly becomes a mess of unrelated posts. People make a new thread when they really need advice. It's simple.


I also came up with this because when I think about my motivation of posting here, I can never get to a conclusion, but I always get this sense of belonging and entertainment, I don't know how to say it, but it's nice, even if sometimes I get mocked and ridiculed.

You're strangely hung up on motivation to come here. I think most people come here out of boredom and procrastination. That's pretty much my motivation.

Horrible comparison. Those other threads weren't made after asking people if the thread should be made and having people tell them reasons why it shouldn't be made... and after they were made, the posters didn't beg people to post in the thread.


And yes, it was an experiment, just like any other thread.

Everything you posted before what I quote is true, so no comment on that, but well, maybe you think I'm too whiny because that's how you interpret my speech, but I am relaxed whilst replying to the things he said, I actually like this dude Baldwin, I do not intend to shut him up at all, on the contrary, but I can't help myself but to express what I think about the things he addresses to me, and I reply with such detail and emotion because this is how I am, I overthink stuff and I like to analyze things and reply to people, maybe it's annoying but, this is the purpose of the BBS, to argue and debate about things, and I thought the boredom and procrastination was understood, but you can entertain yourself in any other site, the reason people posts here is because of the same interest we all share, which is The Offspring, of course, but why taking the likes for their music further? And with strangers on the internet? There can be many reasons, but I tell you the truth when I say I'm not sure about which are mine.
