universe wrote:My college roommate asked me what the deal with Scientology was, so we had a big discussion about Xenu and the bombs and everything. The next day he was walking downtown and got approached by a Scientologist who was working a booth trying to get people to take the e-meter tests, and he stopped and asked the guy "Is it really true that you guys believe the Earth was ruled by an intergalactic warlord who bombed volcanos with nuclear bombs and released evil spirits that make us unhappy?" and the Scientologist goes "Well, it's a little more complicated than that." And my friend goes "It's MORE complicated?!"

He split his share of the rent in half by letting his friend from high school, Hunter, sleep on the floor in the corner of the room. He didn't have a mattress, just a rug and a sheet.

I may have posted about this before but Hunter's daily routine in the summer of 2010 was to wake up and walk to the post office on 3rd & C, where he would pick up mail from a PO box and forward it to someone in Australia. The person in Australia had found Hunter through Craigslist and assured him that he would be paid for his mail forwarding services at the end of each month. It took until August for Hunter to realize he was being scammed.

After he was done forwarding mail, he would walk to the Tompkins Square Park branch of the New York Public Library, check out a novel, and sit in Tompkins Square Park reading it. If he got too hot, he would walk to a coffee place and get an iced coffee. He wouldn't come back to the apartment until he was done reading whatever novel he'd chosen that day.

He read a book a day, seemingly owned 3 identical t-shirts and one pair of shorts, and ate only hot dogs. One time I came back to the apartment after work on a 95 degree day and found him sitting shirtless on the leather couch with two 40's - one in each hand - staring at the television static (we didn't have cable, the TV was just for playing Playstation 2 games on). I asked him what he was doing and he said "I'm trying to finish these before they get hot."

Hunter is the most well-read person I've ever met, but I also saw him set fire to some frozen hot dogs on the stove and then throw up after eating them. He left New York in the middle of the night after realizing he wasn't going to be paid by the Craigslist person, without telling anyone and without paying his share of the rent. He left his library card on the kitchen counter, though.


i like this one bc i weirdly envy Hunter I think

is it even possible to read this post without taking some sort of mental inventory to determine whether it's financially/socially/physically possible for you to become hunter

this thread has definitely become more of a "greatest hits" compendium, which is fine, but not really in line with its original spirit, which was supposed to anthologize posts that for most are completely unremarkable but of which you think often, pretty much inexplicably, so what i'm about to post has been a long time coming & i think falls more in line with the original post

literally almost every time i look at a mirror that isn't primarily occupied by my own reflection, i.e. there's a lot of visual depth "behind" my image, whether it's a cityscape or a street-level window reflection that reveals the world in reverse behind me, i think of the post-- & i'm almost certain it was this poster-- manvstrees made in the 2016 election thread a few days after the election, where he said something roughly along the lines of, "i looked into a mirror earlier today & saw the world reflected back at me & it was like a portal back into universe A"

i mean i think about that post probably nearly every day & i'm sure he doesn't remember posting it at all

In that vein, around the time I first started posting and before I really knew who anyone was, boarder Penitent Man asked Petty how he didn't recognize a Simpsons reference (I don't remember what it was) when his avatar at the time was an image of Lisa Simpson. Petty's response was "Fuckin hate the Simpsons."

I don't know why but I think about that exchange all the time.
