Well, there is always Vimeo... Much classier, though, which is always a stumbling block for popularity...

If most users didn't care it wouldn't be the single biggest topic discussed on Youtube

And you act as though competition is just something that pops up overnight. Even in cases where there's no demand for competition someone will eventually come up and try to do something better, such is the case with Facebook and Twitter

Discord is a rising star right now because it offers a lot of what Skype does, only it's easier to use and much more reliable. It's an app targeted toward gamers and non-gamers are using it because it's a functional alternative to Skype, the only thing holding it back is the fact that Skype has the bigger userbase and offers video services.

If Google doesn't get their shit together and fix Youtube, something else very well could rise up and take its place and very quickly too.

The question is will that actually happen? How likely will this happen? Are say the owners of Pornhub actually pursuing this? The person in the video said they might but didn't actually confirm anything. The whole video was pure speculation. Just because people want to leave Youtube doesn't mean there's enough incentive for companies to provide a platform rival to it. In fact I'm fairly certain this is the case. If Youtube is operating at a loss even as the largest video hosting service then how likely is it that a company would want to operate a rival video hosting service that will make significantly less money? That's a huge risk on their part. I'm not saying this is impossible just incredibly unlikely.

Ever get to the point where you've just... Given up on everything? Cause I have! I've come to terms with the fact that my grades won't be good enough to get into Uni. So... What's the point? Why am I still trying? I THOUGHT I was good enough. I thought; "I usually get A's and B's. This'll surely get me into Uni!" But NOPE. First of all...

English Writing is such a bullshit class, it's unbelievable. Your marks are based on whether your teacher is strict or nice, and I landed a strict teacher. The whole marking structure it's based off of is so faulty and fucked, it's with every English class I've been in. One year, same curriculum and work, I got A's, straight A's at the start of the year. New teacher, got C's for the rest of the year and that ended up being my final grade. This year, it's just a strict teacher through the whole thing. And I thought; "Well at least I can probably learn something from this class!" But I have learnt NOTHING. Only that I'm a shit writer, too ambitious, and that everything is a cliche and I'll never be able to make something original ever. You see famous writers today, successful because of their plots, their ideas, the intricate way they write. But when I try that, it's called "horrible" and I have to rewrite everything. This class is based off of how much you can fit in without fitting in too hard instead of the creativity you possess and what stories you can tell. This is bullshit. This is why I'm failing. And now the depression has made it hard to do anything else. I was committed to getting an A for my graphics class but I've fallen so deeply behind, I wonder if I'll even get a C. I've had A throughout the whole year until now, where I've lost all my motivation after I realized how shit I am. The education system is a fucking joke, exams testing our memory, and essays testing how good you are at following society's stupid rules and structure. If you're even just a little bit off, well "fuck you and everything you love". You want to be good at school? Be a mindless fucking sheep. You want to go to Uni, get a life? Be a robot, and nothing else. Forget everything you love, forget your clean mental state and go wither in eternal failure and misery, you worthless useless shit.

Groups on the internet are really starting to piss me off so I'm adopting a new policy. Whenever someone greets me with their agenda upon meeting me I will do everything in my power to piss them off. You don't just go up to someone and say " Hi, my name is Mike and I'm a liberal atheist vegan" or whatever, that's fucking weird. Said person in question looked like an absolute tool too, fucking hipster. Glad to see my lack of faith in humanity still remains intact. :roll:

I'm inherently suspicious of anyone too keen to surmise their beliefs immediately, or otherwise assign themselves a neat identity sans any natural inclination or individual nuance. I'm all too aware of that hoary old "those that preach have the most to preach about" adage. I also worry that subscribing to certain leftist politics or adhering to specific lifestyle choices will instantly relegate me to the "loon" category, thanks to the horrifying mutant strains of liberal orientations that the internet vomits forth - which to be fair and for the sake of balance is only as bad as the equally horrific right-wing elements.

Knowing full well what I was going to find I decided to look up that user. I found more than I expected. This person is the shining mascot of why I have a word blacklist addon for tumblr to make that site tolerable. They do EVERYTHING. Overusing big words made up by their movement to add weight to their argument and feign intelligence, accuse people of being those made up words even if the made up word wasn't made to mean what they're accusing the person of being simply for not being in full agreement with them, misusing existing words to add severity, passion over fact, complete and total dismissal of experts who have put much more time and energy and effort into their respective fields because what they've learned and uncovered is contradictory to their factless, angry "I thought about it real hard in the shower" arguments.

 

These people are literally impossible to argue with because they've managed to convince themselves so much that they're right and the entirety of the world is wrong that I'm not even sure god could descend from the heavens and say "look dude, you're wrong" and still manage to change their mind.

I'd say - if she hates sex so much, she is welcome to not have any. May even sew her snatch shut and enrol into a convent... She is as irrelevant as a rock lying on the bottom of a bog and to try and argue with the like of her is a waste of breath, in my opinion... :D

I hate customers.

 

Woman brings in her clothes this morning (I'm not at work at this point), and wants them done by tomorrow (our standard is two days). Laundry lady (who doubles as cashier when I'm not working in the morning) promises her they'll be done by tomorrow.

 

Later in the day (I'm working now), phone rings, I answer, lady asks if her clothes will be ready tomorrow if they were brought in today. (Again, normally no, and I didn't know about this morning, not yet.) So, obviously, I tell her no, they'll be ready Thursday. We go back and forth, telling me how she's getting mixed messages because the lady this morning told her that they'll be ready tomorrow.

If you were promised that the clothes you brought in this morning, will be finished tomorrow NO NEED TO CALL IN LATER IN THE DAY TO CONFIRM IT!

 

Which is what I wanted to say, which I did, but in a nicer, friendlier way.

I think she's talking about biological sex not the act of sex. Still adds 0 validity to her claims either way.

A while back I got my first car. After driving it for like 45 minutes, the brakes stopped working (on a 80 km/h strip), we got it fixed and I kept driving it.

I noticed pretty early on that the car jumped whenever you changed gears, but both a mechanic and my friend (who is a hobby mechanic) said that there was nothing to worry about.

After about 2 weeks of owning this car, the engine decided that it was gonna retire and collapsed.

The things that hold the engine up (Im too lazy to look up the english word, but not lazy enough to write all of this explaining myself) had just broken off, completely.

 

So I was without a car untill just this week, when I bought my second car off a friend.

What do you think happened just an hour ago?

Me and few friends were cruising around and I start hearing a sound that sounds like a bird chirping, coming from the right front wheel.

So I call up my hobby mechanic friend, he comes over and takes it for a spin and tells me "the brakes are locking up".

I drove it home SLOWLY, and once I got out of the car it just smelled like burned brakes.

 

Can I just PLEASE for the love of FUCK have a goddamn car that fucking works? I just want to go into town, maybe cruise around a bit and then go home.

I dont even want anything special, just a car thats cheap to own, doesnt drink up all the gasoline right away and thats fairly comfortable to drive.

I ask for so little.

 

Now all of the kids thats out burning rubber every night, their cars dont brake down, oh no.

I always stick to the speed limit, I know how to drive a car in order for it to not take too much damage, but they still break down.

 

 

I have another vent aswell:

 

Recently realized that Im in love with another guy. This makes NO difference to me personally, and I dont want to make a big deal out of it, (yet here I am) love is beautiful no matter what, right? Well for some people this is the biggest thing that has EVER happened.

Im meeting friends who go: "So I heard that you're gay now? Im so glad that you can admit that, you're so brave!"

Im not brave, and Im not gay. I hate these fucking labels. Im inlove with another person with the same gender as me, big fucking deal. Im still me, no? I havent changed simply because of being in love with ONE person.

A girl was actually thrown out of McDonalds because she kept saying that I wasnt really in love with a guy and that I was just faking it. She got thrown out for "homophobic comments" which is great fun and all (she was a real bitch the whole evening) but couldnt she have been thrown out for being a bitch, then?

Some people have made gay jokes and then gone: "Oh my god, Im so sorry!"

FOR WHAT?! IT WAS A FUNNY JOKE, LIGHTEN THE FUCK UP.

And a few of my friends have started tip-toing around me, I assume because they're afraid that I would be offended.

I make gay jokes myself! If you ever met me, you would know that I do not get offended very easily, I can joke about ANYTHING.

I dont even care about the people telling me its wrong, I can just tell them to go mind their own goddamn business, but the sensitive "understanding" people can really fuck off.

But the worst part, the WORST part is the few girls that have told me: "I could use a new gay friend." How about I just be your friend? Or better yet, how about you go fuck off somewhere else, and talk to people about your problems, because guess what? I dont give a shit about you, I just met you, I do not know you, and in fact, Im starting to really, REALLY not fucking like you, you idiot. You could use a new gay friend? Well I could use a new car, but not everyone gets what they want, now do they?

 

Fucking people, I swear to fucking god.

Im not even gay either, Ive been inlove with girls, Ive had 2 girlfriends, I just happen to like a guy, why does it matter so much?

 

I gotta say, though, being inlove is the worst part in all of this, fuck me it sucks (hehe, sucks...)

I would suggest not mentioning it and lay low in general if you want peace and quiet. Right now being any sort of sexuality other than straight is considered an amazing accomplishment that should be praised and celebrated. While I'm all for acceptance people should respect other's privacy.

The problem is that I live in a very small town, so if one person hears it, then in just a few days, the rest of the town knows it, too.

Come to think of it, that is not really a problem. The problem is that people (like you say) see this as some sort of accomplishment.

Im in love, gee, that sure is something that Ive worked hard for all my life and should be praised for.

 

Edit: I cant just not mention it, because if someone asks me if Im in love, or have someone special, I just cant lie. This is me not thinking that its such a big deal, not understanding that other people might see it like one.

You should definitely "clear the air" with your friends and family, so to speak. Make time to sit them down and explain your feelings on how you don't want to be treated differently just because you've discovered a certain aspect of your sexuality you didn't fully realize you had until now. Not everyone is going to be able to switch off about the subject of your homosexuality (or your own preferred term) but it's worth being patient with the people trying too hard to "accept" you or whatever. Eventually, if they really are friends, they'll likely adjust to your relationship and start treating you as the same self-effacing person you strike me as here.

 

Even the most liberal minded and accepting tendencies in popular consensus tend to pigeonhole individuals and gender/sexcuality roles, we tend to think of black and white ungraduated thinking as the preserve of intolerant bigots. But those who are tolerant of homosexuality and other orientations can still have overtly simplistic views and understandings of people's relationships. There is a discernible Gay (capitalization intended) counterculture as well as a perceived trope of queerness in the mainstream that all too often colours the image and assumed roles of anyone who has ever held romantic feelings towards someone of their own sex.

 

My rambling aside, I hope things get easier and less awkward for you. I really do!
