Thread: Does being superior ever burden you?

  1. #1

    Default Does being superior ever burden you?

    Sometimes I feel that it's not worth it to be so much better than the average person. I mean, it gets rather lonely knowing that people will never accept me because I like to use big words and complicated thoughts in everyday speech. It's not my fault that I was born with a high intelligence and amazing good looks, my friends! Why can't you just like me for who I am?

    But alas, it is not to be.

    For instance, I was watching anime last week, and my friend Jake was supposed to call me so that we could go see Appleseed at the midnight movie. But he didn't call! He said he forgot, but I know it's because he didn't want to be seen with a "Brainiac" as he says. This happens to me all the time. Also, during Finals week, I was talking to some kid at school (I'm in 10th grade), and I said that I was exasperated by all the testing because I'm in all AP and Honors classes. Do you know what he said? "What's exasperated mean?" Exasperated people!!! Can you believe that? how could I be put on a planet with such simpletons? I told him such, and he beat me up after school.

    The only time I feel I am with intellectual equals is when I'm watching anime. Anno is a god and when I'm using my big brain, I feel like I'm piloting an Eva. I'm lonely like Shinji. Anno knows exactly how I feel. I hope to meet him one day. I love everything he's ever done, including his post-Eva period of fruity j-pop teenager dramas. I know that Anno felt the way I do, because we are both superior to those around us and we are both alienated by our superiority. As soon as I can afford a trip to Japan, I am going to go because everyone in Japan is like me.

    My parents don't understand me because they don't do anything but watch TV and go to McDonald's. McDonald's is the devil, as illustrated in the amazing documentary Super Size Me. Morgan Spurlock is a great man, even though he eats meat. I don't eat meat because it's bad for you. I read that humans were meant to be herbivores and that eating meat actually kills your body. That sucks. I once met that lady who changed her name to "GoVeg.com" to promote vegitarianism. She was nice, but not very smart. I was uncomfortable because I could tell she was a sheep just like the rest of them.

    Being a sheep sucks. We're so caught up in our consumerism culture that we don't realize the government is shoving our brains full of much for the purpose of harvesting raw energy and work, brilliantly alligoried in the Matrix trilogy. Of the three Matrices, I like Revolutions the best. There is total Christ imagery at the end. Sooooooooo deep.

    So basically, what I want to know is, aren't you tired of hanging around all these sheep all the time? How do you handle your superiority over the Normals? I personally drown myself in anime. Anime and Manga and other things like that. And for those of you wondering, NO ANIME IS NOT A STYLE it is just Japanese Animation and it has nothing to do with how they draw things. Anime artists are as wide and varied as anything your STUPID american comics artists are capable of. It's just Manga is cool and deep and american comics are full of costumed retards for babies. That's why there are two shelves full of Manga at Barnes and Noble and only one for comics, and even that is half-full of "How to Draw Gay Crappy Muscle Men For Losers" and stuff.

    In a fit of overexertion of my brain, I attempted to conjure the essense of a caterpillar. I was able to secrete the slik and make a cocoon, but I had to go to dinner before I could Metamorphoze.

    If you're so smart why aren't you able to socialise with other people?

    Calling yourself superior and better than others just reinforces your inability to socialise in a manner other than video games, anime, and other typically non-social events (except the annual anicon omg).

    Interestingly I see allegedly smart men everywhere being controlled by women, who end up marrying average looking women, and generally being unhappy.

    Unless watching anime makes you as successful as Donald Trump I laugh at you.

    He has a point... a rather blunt point, and I don't much like his misanthropicism, but still. Who are you to define anything as "superior". There are a lot of very successful dumb people out there, I assure you.

    All things considered, it isn't ability, but *drive* that defines success. You're here whining about how you're treated unfairly because of your own "superiority".... well, here's news for you, I'm fairly good looking, and have a genius level IQ, and I would treat you the exact same way as those "inferiors". It's all about attitude, and yours sucks.

    Now, I don't expect this to get through to your "superior" mind, but if you're really all that great, why not go forth and use your abilities to overcome the situation. I know I have. It's not difficult, all you have to do is stop pretending you're better than other people, because you're not.

    I think his attitude is great. Infact, superior to yours.

    Of course, sticking and defending (even against rational sence) those whom you affiliate with, just like everyone does. It's the same sheep mentallity that he attacked so happily before. I take an opposed stance, instead of going with the crowd, and naturally get ostricized for it. Fascinating. So, you do to me as society does to you, and since you're "superior" to society, does that mean I'm superior to you? But, chances are, you won't stop to consider that question in a serious way.


    EDIT: Or you're just trying to be funny. Which I wouldn't put past a lot of people around here. Nor would I hold it against anyone.

    Sometimes, brevity doesn't work. I think this is one of those times.

    *realizes once again why staying out of general chat is a good thing*

    But, in all seriousness, your short answer, it doesn't even include which question was answered. I could always be an idiot about it and twist your words to my benefit, but instead I offer you the chance to clarify? Appearantly my courtesy went unnoticed.
