I feel justified yet disgusted with myself at the same time

What is the point in life on Earth? What is the point in life in the universe? What is the point in the universe itself, even? LOL, it all sucks. "Chinese" restaurants in the US suck, I doubt they even taste like real Chinese food, I bet real Chinese food is a lot spicier, and less shitty tasting. Fuckin' "lo mein", tastes like saucy noodle garbage. All the universe is is just a collection of matter and energy interacting with each other in one large ever-expanding clusterfuck of meaninglessness. What is meaning? Something that human beings assign to things to assess its function. Not that it matters, humans suck in general, especially me!

I often wonder the true meaning in everything, even if I realize that the concept of meaning itself is stupid.

I find it easier to go on living when I have some sod to comfort me.

But seriously, stop posting while high. Or just stop posting.

I'm not high. I'm depressed and don't know what to do with myself.

But it tastes kinda bad. I even prefer ramen noodles to it. I just want to stop living in isolation and self hatred. The only reason I posted this thread is because I feel that I have no other channel of expression and just needed to get it out.

"real" chinese food is much more bland, IMO, and they use a lot less meat and more veggies. I much prefer the western variety. Especially the sweet & sour; traditional sweet & sour is vile. As for chow mein or low mein or pancit or whatever noodly shit is in question, I load it up with soy sauce. Love that shit. I use it in everything.

Also life sucks then you die, get over it. Best way to deal with it is to make your own meaning. Quit sitting reveling in your own self pity and do something.

Though honestly I had mostly the same outlook till I've gotten a kid in my life, and I'd do anything for her. <3 my babby

Ah, to be drunk and young... Then again, I'm only 25, so it's not like I'm old or anything. I've just gotten past that "I'm worthless and the world is meaningless so I'm just going to moan and drink" phase of my existence.

Seriously, fuck that shit.

I hate it too, but I'm not sure what to do in place of it. All I know is that I don't like suffering the way I am, and want to improve myself as a person to end it.

The only good chinese joints I found were a cheapass place where you picked from a menu, and I'd always get the $3.50 bigass plate of whatchamakalit, which didn't have much meat but lots of veggies and rice, and was tasty and filling (it had lots of cabbage - good stuff). The other place was a $10 all-you-can-eat buffet, where I'd always pig out on shrimp and steamed broccoli, and the hell with those damn noodles and rice. But anyway, those were sit-down joints, not delivery (that stuff in my experience tends to be unsatisfying).

And if you want spicy... add some fresh, diced hot peppers and garlic to your food. Works with just about anything too. You can even prepare a large amount of chutney, store it in the fridge, and have some every day. This is a lot nicer than store-bought hot sauces.

Outside of the extremely slim chance of life on Earth being a giant scientific experiment instigated by aliens, I don't believe there's a "meaning" to anything, in the spiritual sense that most people apply to the word. Our brains have evolved to the stage where we can spend surplus processing power asking what the point of life is and feeling sorry for ourselves, particularly during that stage that everyone goes through at at least one point in their life (I've gone through several of them, but I got past it thankfully).

Just enjoy the ride as best you can. Even if you're one of those people who lives to be 110, it's a pretty short one. Try to exploit the fact that you were born in a comparatively privileged environment by making money so you can enjoy what time you have even more.

Yes, the universe has no damn meaning. Tough. Now you know why people desperately cling to their silly religions. Build your own meaning. Make shit better. Make anything better; just try not to make other things too much worse. Or just find something you like and do that. If you don't know what it is then spend time - possibly most of your life - figuring it out.

Chinese food in China comes in as much variety as you'd expect from a country with more than a billion people. Some of it is fucking delicious and some of it is fucking awful (everything I had in Hangzhou).

Chinese food elsewhere comes in similar variety, but I suppose that depends on where you live. Where I live (Edmonton, AB) happens to have a massive Chinese community so I can have a ridiculous range of Chinese food, both in style and quality. Sometimes the westernized stuff is better than the authentic stuff and sometimes not. Japanese food here is unfortunately not so diverse, but it can still be pretty tasty.

In conclusion, drinking is best done while not alone. Well, at least if you're going to get drunk. I drink while I work sometimes and it helps keep me happy, but two beers does not make a drunk Aliotroph?. Drinking is best done with one or two people you get along very well with. Too many more and you can get into that thing where you get pissed at the debate the others are having - or you can just end up in a big, sucky party. (OK, that last part is really just my anti-party bias talking.)

Yeah, big parties suck. The more people at a party the less I want to socialize with anyone. It's best to get pissed with four or less friends.

I don't see the big deal with drinking solo either, unless you're self destructive. I drink by myself all the time and usually just end up playing videogames until I start getting motion sickness, then I chug a big glass of water and go to bed. Is a good way to relax, and occasionally I get just the right amount that makes me feel good without feeling like shit later. I'd probably switch to pot if my girlfriend would let me, though.

Seconded.

It's best to know who you're drinking with doesn't have an aggressive side that starts showing after a couple of beers. Otherwise you'll have a hard time relaxing.

Also helps when your best drinking buddy happens to be your ex-gf.

Yeah, I like to have some beer while I relax. It goes well with video games, movies and the web. I prefer interesting beer that probably costs a bit more. I have less and enjoy it more.

It seems the thing to remember with alcohol is it's a mood amplifier. It's nice when you want to relax or socialize with friends, and it sucks when you're depressed or angry.

Pot doesn't relax me. It's interesting, but doesn't usually agree with me, so I just leave it alone.

And to address an earlier comment, Chinese soy sauce is too salty. Japanese soy sauce is nicer, but I only have it with a few things. I never put it on Chinese food unless I find myself stuck with a bowl of rice containing nothing else.

Ah, good ol' existential crises.

If the world was actually meaningless, then it wouldn't technically 'suck'. Because there's no room for 'suck' to mean anything. If you really think about it, meaninglessness is quite awesome (I don't mean the post-modern bullshit they talk about, 'oh we're all subjective, hurray!').

Adjust your attitude and expectations, just learn to admire what we have going on in this universe, and don't let any mass-media, pop culture, consumerism tripe, or safety of mediocrity get to you completely. Play some fun sports, exercise regularly, do some hobbies, experience and titillate your sensations and your mind with many things this world has to offer. And socialise with people, face-to-face (ever wondered why therapists are helpful?). Doomworld forums, facebook, online conversations, or whatnot, are not exactly healthy social substitutes but they can be reasonable supplements. And definitely reserve drinking for social occasions. I always end up feeling like shit if I just drink on my own. It's just not fun.

Life is meaningless and completely unnecessary. People act like it matters, but in another thousand or million or billion or however many years humanity will be extinct. So it's best to try to have good morals, treat people nicely, find stuff you're interested in (or make yourself interested in something if you're depressed), so that waiting years to die will be at least somewhat enjoyable.

Also, procreation is never the answer!

The meaning of life is that we die. And afterwards all that remains is a legacy borne of our actions and achievements. To make a mark that lasts on the collective human psyche is the only way to achieve a sort of 'immortality'; to be remembered beyond one's years.

So, you have to ask yourself, do you really want to be remembered for 'MY POSTS AREN'T THAT BAD, SERIOUSLY' and existential crises over faux-Chinese food?

Same here, though I usually choose those when I'm drinking solo at home and just grab one from the fridge, they tend to be ridiculously overpriced (and rarely available) at pubs.
