Listen up edgelords, post your edgiest philosophical views in here.
Who's the smartest person you know?
Well /lit/, do you pull the lever or not?
Why isn't gooder a word?
Gooder is gooder compared to words like greater and better. Please start using gooder so it can catch on.
Thoughts on this book and other Tim & Eric related literature?
I'm thinking of buying it from Amazon out of interest.
How much does the Oatmeal trigger you?
I think it must be really sad to think you know what the hallmark of humanity is and not have any serious interest or capability in it. Pop science depresses me more than it triggers me.

Anyone read this? What did you think?
From what I remember, /lit/ tends to hate self-inserts.
Is this true?
If so, why? Why is it you hate self-inserts?
If you discovered that the MC in a novel you enjoyed was a self-insert, would it change your opinion on either the work or on the idea of self-inserts in general?
I'm aware that a lot of teenagers are all Ayy Lmao about it and think they're special so they use a SI and it makes the story boring as fuck.
But honestly, this is like saying all books are bad because Twilight was published.
Ok. When I hear self-insert, I think reader insert, which is sure to be pandering wish-fulfillment escapist trash.
Author insert can be that too but if you refused to reading anything semi-autobiographical you'd be missing out on a shit ton of great novels.
Anybody here who has actually read this meme author ? If so is he any good and wich book do you recommend ?
Thoughts on this? wiki claims it's autobiographical but I remember one of the stories was proven false. Is this worth reading for comedy?
read it awhile ago when it came out, thought it was funny at the time but I remember maybe two scenes from the whole book, I remember fairly large typefont and spacing, nothing else.
I'm considering picking it up again if anything to philosophize about the empty musings of a drunken brodude, but is the book authentically debauched or is it all a guise for shills?
Anyone read this horror anthology?
Pretty decent imo
I'm finding that I've started to refrain from having opinions or confidence in my knowledge because I'm now used to having my conceptions destroyed since I began reading regularly.
I dont have any convictions because I know there are books out there that will convince me otherwise. I feel prepared to let go of anything I believe at a moments notice.
Is this just a phase? I look back on how dumb I was a few years ago compared to now, and I imagine it will be the same in the future so I get instantly discouraged and constantly worry that I am unaware...

No, because I've thought of things in this way since I was like, 14. You should get used to deriving confidence from your willingness to adapt and see things from as many perspective as you can, rather than from the idea of cocksure certainty. That way you will actually be stronger than the ignorant, and this is a good thing.
What are the impacts of science on the social order in never let me go
hey /lit I have an essay due tomorrow that I don't want to write. Know any good sites that will write it for me?
