I am getting tired of people being so ignorant.
Apparently if you study on your own free time and talk about science and Philosophy, you are a very boring person (aka Me).
I always like to talk about new Scientific discoveries, how philosophies apply to our everyday lives, diffrent math equations and algorithms and the global news. In my school, everyone seems to get bored by me. I guess if I do not know what team won the last game, I cannot be accepted as an individual.

    @RAZERZ Yep. Practicing programming, reading books, and writing essays in my free time. A lot of people stop listening to me after the first 2 sentences.

    @ribchinski fuck em. Essentially. In a group work? Do it all yourself but make sure to take the fucking credit. Make sure everyone hates you and you'll be "remembered" as a hero. Look at Ben Shapiro for example, leftists hate him, but he's recognised 😗

    @RAZERZ Group work's fine; I usually avoid group work. It's just that the people are the shittiest douchebags I've ever met. That's why I have only like 3 pals who I can hang out with in school.

    @ribchinski yep, and that's that. Some would say "be nice; even to the cunts that aren't" but I'd say "be as shit as you possibly can. Use all your magical computer knowledge to fuck with them and you'll have a blast in school"

    The good part about people at school is that school is over and left behind after a predetermined time,and so bye bye crappy people.

    The import lesson however, is to learn the art of "not giving a fuck" what others think and say, because trying to be and act in a way that others don't have anything to criticize about you, is a losing battle from the beginning.

    So, as you will proceed in life, most of these around you will be replaced by people with more shared interests, so "what you don't like drinking and football? Ahahahaha you're no real man, loser!" will be replaced by "what you don't use git from a console? Ahahahaha you're no real dev, loser!".
    There will always be some shitty people because people love to feel superior for what they do, and chose and prefer. Fuck them.

    And don't become one of them.

    People really like talking about themselves. So if you can get them to share something about themselves that they think is important then you'll have an instant connection.
    Try asking them a simple open endend question next time you want to talk to them.
    Example:
    You look like an interesting person. What can you tell me about yourself?

    Once you've established a good connection with the person you'll find they start listening to you.

    The situation is the same when u go to work also I like to talk about science and philosophy at work where as people around me want to talk about family matters breakfast weather and other such bull crap.
    Thankfully I have one colleague who listens to me and understands me but when he goes on leave i bury myself with work to avoid the regular shit

    @thevariableman I have one or two people in school who honestly listen to me and understand my situation. Everyone else just cares about popularity, and will change the way they behave and look just to fit in with the crowd.

    I am 6foot 4inch (191 cm) and I wear a suit every day to school, so I can easily stand out from the crowd. I am also an immigrant, which makes me an outsider...

    @ribchinski In 'murica? That is fine man. I talk to peeps but I am not one of them. Besides in the end you got to remember you are working hard and that will pay off. Doesn't your school have different classes for honors Ap and normal classes? Or maybe clubs you can join? Or just be a lone ranger. In the end it could be more useful. Batman is a loner or was. And look at him.

    @ThaOneDude I am in Honors Geometry. People there do not think like me that much either, sadly.

    People get bored and sometimes end up hating those who are closer to God (you) lol
    It is indeed something to worry about. Most people hate smart conversations because they focus in other useless superfluous things. The future of this world is in hands of those guys.

    @Darmark it is kind of scary that they are the majority. And also what do you mean that I am "closer to god"?
  • 1
    @ribchinski well, you're prolly 10x smarter than them and can essentially play god with them
  • 0
    @ribchinski Oh nevermind, I had an egocentric teacher back in college who used to say we're closer to God than those who weren't in college

    Well man, here it goes. From what I read here, I'm not suprised one bit. You want to talk about things that are out of scope of an average highschool person, and then you are suprised that they are not interested. You wear a suit to stand out, and then expect to fit in. You think they are all stupid, and then you want them to respect you. Maybe you should think about what you can do differently, and if you don't want to try to change, that is fine, but then dont go ranting about stuff. You seem like a very pretencious person. This was my honest take on your situation, do with it as you wish, and the rest of you, hit me with your best!

    @Kulijana I wear a suit because that’s my style. I feel odd when I wear sweatclothes. And I hate gossip, which holds most groups in my school together.

    @ribchinski Dude your school sounds really cliche.
  • 0
    Science and Math? New discoveries? History? Tight as shit.
    Philosophy? A bunch of old white guys trying to play devil's advocate in as boring and roundabout a way as possible. It's a) usually a bad framework for thinking about the world, and b) not accessible.

    In highschool, etc, people haven't lived that long, but you'll usually learn a lot more talking to someone about themselves than arguing some utilitarian viewpoint trying to prove you're smarter than everybody else.

    That's just my two cents.

    @ribchinski
    Thats ok. But there are so many types of people in highschool, and there must be someone sharing some of your interests. Maybe its not always about what you say, but how you say it.
  • 0
    @Kulijana maybe I just need to work on how I say it, maybe. There are like 2 people in my grade who care about education and trying their best not just for the grades, but because we actually like learning.

    Then there's the nerd girl group. They take classes outside of school, play violins, etc. I thought that I might get along with them, since we're insterested in similar things, but they just avoid me.

    P.S. In middle school, a lot of rumors were spread about me... And believe me, they were horrible.
  • 1
    @SauceBoss @ribchinski Man I feel actually horrible for you. What rumors? That cos you were smart and wore a suit you were an odd boy?
  • 0
    @ThaOneDude I was taught the way to express my emotions by classical books and such. The first time I fell in love, I acted upon it in full force. Put on a tuxedo, buy roses and chocolates and ask the girl out. I did and she refused to me and later spread rumors that I’m a creep and a stalker.
  • 1
    @ribchinski Whoah. Well ya dodged a bullet. What grade are you in? Also people generally don't do that unless it is for like prom or homecoming or something like that.
  • 1
    @ThaOneDude all of the rumors were spread behind my back. I’m actually an becoming friends with some people who I’ve never interacted with before. They all have at least one similar reason on why they didn’t talk to me earlier: they thought all the rumors about me being a stalker, racist, sexist and a nazi sympathizer were true. But now that they actually talked to me, they were shocked to find out that I’m actually a very nice and caring guy who respects other people’s choices and tries to help them.

    @ribchinski That is pretty great what grade are you in?

    @ThaOneDude I’m a freshman. Many people who don’t know me think that I’m a senior, because of the way I formulate my speech and the way I act.
  • 2
    @ribchinski Oof i am a freshman and the same thing happens to me. Doesn't help that i'm 6 foot 1. But I quite like the way people assume i'm older than I am. You should maybe start talking more or maybe ask a school counsellor on how to stop that rumor. Do NOT mention any names if you ask a teacher or someone for help though. Also I think kids calling you a nazi supporter makes bout this much sense: 👎👎

    @ThaOneDude I’m actually a person who loves to talk a lot. I try to start up conversations with others, but most of the time they do not like talking to people they “do not know”.

    It also doesn’t help that I hate most rap songs that these people consider hip.

    @ribchinski
    Yeah, people might be a bit scared. I know you said you read a lot, are you by any chance refering to mein kampf 😂. Most of the high school girls aren't really into ethnic cleansings and the whole arian heritage stuff, maybe you should try asking them out for a movie instead
    (((Its a joke because he said some people think he is a nazi supporter, and if i dont add the (), someome will missinterpet this for sure...)))

    Why would you even be bothered by that?! Had the same problem, the queenB decided we're not besties anymore & others ditched me... It bothered me at first, what is wrong with me, what have I done to deserve this?!
    Um..nothing?! Just because you don't have a bunch of fake friends that doesn't make you weird or sth..the sooner you learn that individual thinking is loathed & frowned uppon & you learn to be yourslef & enjoy yourself you'll be much happier person! Fuck such friends who want you to be their mirror image! You know how you can get those? Dolly, sheep? Ring a bell?! Most kids nowadays are attention whores, collecting friends juat so they can have more likes on facebook & feel important somehow.. is this shit really worth your time?!

    @sladuled no it is not. I am actually a strong believer in individuality. I wrote a few philosophical essays about it and I keep telling everyone how bad it is to mirror someone else. They never listen.
