Do normies see the tech world differently? Posted on May 22, 2023 by Anonymous Do normies see the tech world differently?
Work in retail or IT for a couple of years.
Yes, what kind of retarded question is that. Normalfags see everything differently. Their whole life philosophy was programmed at an early age, and their intuition had been circumcised from their minds before they even had a chance to use it
It raises a point that in reality, they are just like this. Lemmings from birth.
if you have ever had sex you are also a normalfag.
even with my bf?
even when he ties me to the bed beforehand?
Gay sex is glorified masturbation. homosexuals and lesbians are still virgins.
Nah, i'm just an autist that can pretend to be retarded.
Even the Japanese term riajuu isn't that strict. Having sex doesn't make you a normalfag. Having a normalshit girlfriend doing normal couple things makes you a normalfag.
there is a high likelyhood you are normalfags yourselves
Butthurt normalfag detected
I'm not one. I've just seen normalfags pull this shit repeatedly because they are just a little bit quirky and now think they are an outcast.
I'm a virgin.
Fuck no I'm not a normalfag. I have the retardation of one but also never had sex with a girl either. I get the worst of all worlds usually
Do you want to have sex?
Newsflash if you ever had sex you are a normalfag.
>Their whole life philosophy was programmed at an early age
heh a LULZ drone saying this is hilarious
Shut the fuck up normalnagger NPC. Leave this place.
>tfw narcissists actually view the world like this
I would trade intuition for a foreskin any day
They think installing add-ons in Edge or Firefox is high level hacking and they refuse install a ublock. And people only use the software that already comes with the phone/computer, so no one is going to switch to NewPipe because they are obsessed with the YouTube mobile app or from the app in shitty smart TVs. Most have this mental gymnastic about how ads are integral part of internet and deleting ads is hurting "creators" when "creators" are the same person, they’re fucking indistinguishable. Same titles, same cartoon avatar, same fake angry gamer personality, same weird vocal cadence.
This, normalfags got their consciousness removed through programming and ritual humiliation. The majority you see around you are empty husks. This thread is pointless.
This is the point of public education. Friendly reminder that if your parents sent you to be raised by the state they did not love you.
>haha yeah bro just teach your kid every last thing about everything and how the world works while slaving away at a wage slave job and go through heroic efforts and overwhelming odds to make your kid an infallible flawless super being of strength intellect agility dexterity wisdom and what have you
You probably dont have a kid yourself to put the cherry on top of this whole joke
Are you implying that public school teaches your kid every last thing about everything and how the world works?
>make your kid an infallible flawless super being of strength intellect agility dexterity wisdom and what have you
or remotely does anyt of this crap you stated
a significant percentage of the population doesn't understand that a bicycle is made up of components that can be individually replaced or changed
True that. My neighbor thought i was crazy for changing my own bike tire and indexing the gears
indexing gears is one thing but changing a fucking bike tire???
gf has a 2014 RAV4 with the original factory wiper on the rear window. And she also only changes the front wipers when getting an oil change at a shop.
past year I bought back a Celica I sold to my brother ~5 years ago and still had the Bosch rear wiper I installed on it when I first got the car (I carved an R on it to remember which one was while replacing the windows' rubber gaskets)
Changing that thing is not necessary is it?
Rear wiper is kind of whatever tbqh. Don't really need the same level of visual clarity as opposed to what I'm about to drive into.
Aha, my wife never fucks me, so there!
One day received a Jira ticket for the application I was managing (not hands-on developing) that processing would stop unless the mouse continued to move. The fact that developers older than me don't know about main threads just makes my teeth itch.
Yeah but I understand the fundamentals of all of those things, too. Some people just cannot into computers. Maybe if boolean algebra was a topic covered in schools...
Wife freaks out on every little light on her car dash. I always tell her to read the manual. Instead she'll read literally anything else. Some people just literally can't help themselves.
fuck off normalnaggers go back to facebook
Significant percentage of those people don't understand that those components are to some degree standardized between vendors and so they buy name brand shit
How many of you know someone that hits their computer to make it work or speed up?
a customer service retard in the office will repeatedly hits her keyboard several times a day, every day, because our Enterprise Software™ tends to crash when used over wireless but she refuses to plug the ethernet cord in
women in it are a mistake. go back to cooking fuckin hoe
my rusty old socket AM2 machine stock cpu fan is getting screechy. once in a while i got to knock on top of the casing to get it back on track.
I had a screen that would work if i hit it hard enough.
One of my Case fans gets loud unless I give it a good wiggle. Works every time. Percussive maintenance is a real thing.
Yep, that's me.
I used to hit my laptop to get it's whiny fan to shut the fuck up
i do that quite a lot myself
I once filled my corporate MacBook with birdshot to speed up the process of getting a system that I didn't hate, does that count?
What is birdshot?
Hey, percussive maintenance is an art.
I once had an Xbox 360 that wouldn't read disks unless you beat the fuck out of it while it right after inserting the disks. I mean not just slapping it, but banging it on the ground, all kinds of shit. Kinky little Xbox 😉
That person was me. My power supply would make a horrible noise at random, I would hit the power supply with the backend of my screwdriver until it stopped. It always worked like a charm.
Does moving my mouse quickly in tight circles count?
I remember as a kid being able to type website urls in the file manager of an OS in the late 90s and getting to a website that way.
For about 10 years or so I considered that a delusion until the internet reminded me that this was a thing once upon a time.
Now Microsoft kinda does it with edge for the sake of blurring the line between local storage and cloud storage (for surveillance reasons). Remote computing was a mistake. Hell, networks and internet was a mistake.
That was because the file manager from 98 to XP was basically an Internet Explorer window.
I don't remember XP doing it... well not latter XP.
cuz microshart got sued and stopped doing that bullshit.
I almost sent my $150 mouse through the wall earlier today, but that was due to fucking up practice test questions while on 4 cups of coffee
It unironically works
used to work 20 years ago
I did that with a satellite receiver box and it somehow started working again after i gave it a hard hit
You joke, but...
"Percussive maintenance is a very common solution to many malfunctions. In fact, NASA says it’s been used during Apollo 12 mission when one of the cameras stopped working – astronauts just hit it with a hammer."
Worked very well on old tvs
Me and my sister used to back the fuck out of our old CRT to get it working. This was like 2012ish... not even that long ago.
In space you have no option.
That's very common in space I'd imagine because of the temperature/gravity issues.
I had an old xbox that wouldn't eject the disk tray unless I gave it a firm slap
I'm an IT guy/gorilla. Switch not restarting? Slap rack. Dock not working? Slap connector. Screen not working? Slap it back into the bezel. It works really fucking well.
Some of those lads in the programming and the database areas love the gorilla tactics and admire how few fucks you give. Some don't even know how their dependencies got on their computer and think you're a wizard. Some hate the fact that you can't remember all of their extremely niche and autistic tools. It all depends.
Me, you have to keep your pc in check else it starts installing mcafee for you.
of course. if you're not educated and acquainted with something you will see and interact with it differently. this can be said for basically anything in existence.
this works though 😉
My ps2 used to only work if I hit it in the back during the loading intro. I'm not sure how child me figured that out, but it worked every time.
It's the same principle as smacking the starter motor with a hammer. Everything that is digital is first mechanical.
I had a loose fan on the PSU and would have to regularly hit it to keep it spinning. One time I forgot and my PSU died!
That guy sounds like he might be going through something so I wish them luck
>Treating a computer like your wife
I literally still do that because I forget that SSDs are no longer disk based so it doesn't affect them.
But also, there are still computers with terrible designs that actually do require physical agitation to correct their chips in their sockets when they inevitably move from heat expansion/contraction.
The Apple III was notorious for this:
I actually do this with my mechanical keyboard a bit because I've literally seen the circuit board on it and no "it's a bit fucked".
My "N" and "`" start to fuck up after a couple hours.
I have potentially a laptop that does this too as it's poorly cooled.
I actually had a CRT that would sometimes display in an hourglass shape, and smacking it a few times would unironically make it work correctly again.
What about it?
this works though i kicked my toast back to life many times
my mom bangs the mouse on the desk
Literally dislodges gunk in my mouse so it doesn't double click.
I had 2x20mb mfm drives that would not mount unless i gave the box a kick, to be fair the machine was housed in a drafty shed at the bottom of my garden.
Some retard in my college class will bash the desk if he can't get a simple task right for the computer lab.
sending a vibration through a machine is hardly so different from sending an electrical signal through it
>my windows desktop won’t start up
>it says to setup a boot drive
>keep trying to turn it on and it says the same thing
>get pissed off and throw one of my mum’s boots at the tower
>next time I turn the pc on, it starts up as normal
I did that before, and it worked. It was a shitty CRT monitor that you had to hit to get the tube to work right sometimes. Had a TV that did that too.
I used to do it, when I was a child
I wish i was a normalfag, mindlessly living my life, consooming, whatever
There are two things I noticed. Normies are easily impressed. I went to someone's house to upgrade their SSD from 512G to 1T, and all I had to do was to use a Hirens image and a cloning tool. Motherfucker stared in shock when I entered the key combination to the BIOS to switch boot order. He thought it was black magic that I could swap over his data, and not need to reinstall Windows. Another thing is that normies also tend to use apps as-is. I've had people tell me a "hack" to skip YouTube ads, by reporting them as spam. I told them that they could use Firefox Mobile, but they didn't want to go through the hassle of installing addons and typing in the URL.
>Motherfucker stared in shock when I entered the key combination to the BIOS to switch boot order
At work I'm regarded as a magician as well because I know how to use Google to search for solutions. Btw it's also astonishing how a lot of normies don't know how to use Google, and I'm not talking about tech illiterate boomers
Funnily enough, I think that Google-ing is becoming a real skill now that there's so much shit in the results. Not just talking about knowing advanced operators like minus and quotes, but the sheer experience/intuition to know which results are buzzfeed-tier garbage versus what you actually need.
It's flabbergasting how every year Google results get shitter and shitter and getting useful information is getting harder and harder. What used to take 30 seconds to find 5 years ago now takes 5 minutes or more. It's no wonder ChatGPT made them shit their pants (funnily enough you're also seen as a hacker if you know how to use AI lol).
This is why Microsoft is pushing so hard to integrate AI into Bing/Edge/Office.
I hate how Google exclude blogspot, wordpress, neocities or sites written por human lifeforms. It always the same same corporate bullshit (Twitter, instagram, etc)
Or SEO plagued sites where they write 3 paragraphs of bullshit text before going into the actual issue
>I think that Google-ing is becoming a real skill now
it is, only because the demons of babylon have engineered entire generations to have huge chunks of basic knowledge and common sense deleted from their repertoire. A lot of them dont even speak the same language as the previous generation. Even if the engines werent crippled, you can't search for something if you don't know the words to use. fr no cap! Their sollution? Fucking ai-chat bots to try and interprete the negrobabel theyve taught zoomers.
>dont be racist anon
I'm being literal.
zoomer speak is based on atlanta georgia ghetto slang. Millenails were taught socal/new york negro slang, which came from a generation where blacks still practiced white culture to an extent and went to white schools. Then the open immigration happened, and it was unironically the black community that was hit the hardest by it first. Blacks basically got kicked out of their cultural strongholds by hispanics, asians and other immigrants and were dispersed throughout the country. The only real concentrations of black culture left are now in the traditional holdouts in the old black belt. If you ever wondered why zoomer music is so retarded,its because the movie and music producers went from using slightly educated socal blacks, to literal 80iq dumb as fuck southern blacks as their current-gen template for cultural subversion.
the next gen is unironically being groomed to embrace a different cultural group, so dont be suprised when your grandkids cant speak english and instead start interjecting random bits of chinese or whatever wins out. Then you're going to see some real inter-generation frustration.
this makes sense
never really noticed before
t. late-millennial NY black
that said i havent really lived there since like 2014 so i dunno whats going on there anymore
an interesting observation is that the "IT guys" at a normal office are seen as extremely intelligent tech wizards by everybody because they can plug in printers and reset passwords, but the "IT guys" at a software company are recognized as being clearly a few standard deviations below all the software engineers in IQ
It's a horrible feeling knowing that all things considered I'm pretty stupid but also that everyone else is even more stupid than I am, there's no bright side to it.
I'm in no way a genius or even smart but it's really a shock when you truly realize what it means that half of the population has a double digit iq. It's not even about tech literacy at this point, if you aren't retarded you are tech literate it's extremely easy. If you can watch a youtube video you should also be able to install adblock or switch to firefox to get rid of ads. It boggles the mind.
>install adblock or switch to firefox to get rid of ads
Chrome blocks ads just as good if not better.
>Chrome blocks ads just as good if not better.
No. Especially not with the upcoming Maifest V3 WebExtensions where Chrome will greatly limit adblocking capabilites.
People are already downloading other front ends to work around this.
For starters, some people use nothing but things like instagram or discord apps. Some people don't even use web browsers nowadays.
Google doesn't see the storm coming there. Soon third party front ends will compete with their browser market. Browsers are transforming again.
they'll do anything to skip watching ads but they won't install an ad blocker because that's "illegal"
yeah they think its arcane magic..
but then again a lot of tech people think its arcane magic too..
so actually they probably see it the same way that many tech people see it I guess. Black box that does stuff.
>I'm different. I'm special.
In these matters, yes we are, don't let your low self-esteem tell you otherwise.
>Sister and Mum needed me to fix something on the computer
>I look it up on my reliable tech site, follow instructions, fix it

>"All you do is look it up!"
>mfw responding with "Why don't you then?"
But in all seriousness, why don't normies look up the problem and try and troubleshoot what's happening?
Laziness and having had everything done for them. If you just refused to help from the start, they'd either have gotten so fed up that they'd learn how to fix it themselves eventually or gave up forever. Likely gave up forever though since they're women.
if i died, my wife would start buying movies and paying for netflix, despite all my efforts to try to teach her about torrenting
My dad is like this, he is an extremely smart chap but there is a blank void when it comes to simply troubleshooting a problem.
>I can do it myself anon!
>It's just easier if you do it.
>Oh alright then
He would seriously transfer the deed to the house to scammers if I didn't help him.
Troubleshooting means you need to have a functioning brain. NPC's don't have one.
I fucking seethe every time I see picrel.
I sincerely hope that this is fake but I doubt it.
There's a reason this image is known as
this is so old but I still really feel for that anon
parents blatantly preferring one sibling are horrible

Computers and internet are just enigmas to people who were born in previous generations. My parents have gotten better in the last 10 years but they still google things in funny ways and my step-dad exclusively uses voice inputs.
>they still google things in funny ways
my mom googles things as if she is sending a formal letter to google.
>But in all seriousness, why don't normies look up the problem and try and troubleshoot what's happening?
because something like 60-70% of people are either actually illiterate or functionally illiterate.
Because you do it for them for free
They offer him sex in exchange.
It's not just a computer thing, it's incredibly widespread. It's like 80-85% of people don't realize they can read the manual, that a lot of things are explained there.
It's something I genuinely struggle with, I don't understand why they don't know they can the manual.
Because "looking up" a problem is not that automatic, you have to critically think about how to write it. Example:
>why excel freezes when doubleclick number cell
>why my table becomes white if i click twice on a block? It is formatted to show numbers with decimals, like 7,89
You'd be surprised how much boomers write similarly to the second query. This is extremized, but normies too often do clear mistakes or are ambiguous.
>tfw I type with broken grammar when searching something because I'm 100% convinced that it actually gives me better answers
both of those queries are ungrammatical English, please go leaveand
decades of psychological torture in order to foster a self-reinforcing loop of learned helplessness.
"just google it bro" is a massive meme started by millennials and perpetuated by zoomers who grew up with windows and were at least familiar with it at a basic level.
>mfw responding with "Why don't you then?"
I actually never do that as much as I thought I did.
But then again it's things like "how do I save a word document".
This is a question from a person that literally used to save text docs in the 80s/90s on floppies in a way I don't really know and who has also been using word since windows 95. Old people scare me.
Then again, her slightly younger brother and sister can literally run virtual machines... how my mother is that computer illiterate is beyond me. The gap between gen X and baby boomer is rediculous with technical capability. Gen X are basically like millennials but they know all the shit I never grew up with as well (so the details of computer architecture and OS design because they saw it manifest and grew up with it as it developed). I know GUI interfaces very well, but they're still familiar with the text interface.
Also, people born after the Iphone scare the shit out of me. They're not aware of how code manifests their GUI at all and how drivers and file hierarchy works. They see symbols and links and that's "storage" to them. To them, the cloud is pretty much the same as their local storage. This is literally being indoctrinated into them by clever marketing tactics by Microshit, Applel and Goolag, who are slowly invasively suggesting to them to store everything on cloud (in win 11, the default is cloud to a degree for most home users).
this is exactly why I think NPC are real. it feels like only 25% of the human race has an inkling of a functional psyche, and only half of that actually use it.
Yes, yes they do.
>Plug in the network cable to your laptop
That's extremely brave of them to trust the regular idiot to plug the network cable correctly. I can see people using nail clippers or knives or whatever tools they happened to have on hand to trim the connector to shove it into usb or some other hole they locked onto
it's no different with regular AC power outlets
most modern (esp. thin) laptops do not have ethernet adapters
>most modern (esp. thin) laptops do not have ethernet adapters
No shit, he's saying you'd think they'd have laptops with Wi-Fi
nah no way
macbooks don't have ethernet port. Some computer illiterate is gonna try to jam it in the usb, sooner rather than later
>University of Canterbury
Considering it's filled with chinks you'd imagine they'd have laptops with modern network adapters
I do something similar on my locked down work laptop when I can't be arsed to switch to my own.
>have auto-play next suggested video enabled
>click next video arrow (or shift + N)
>go back to video with backspace
Skips those shitty 2 ads
going back works from any video, click another video in the sidebar then go back a page in browser and it skips the ads at the start
well i used to, now i just add the account to a list that yt-dlp checks and downloads every video the user has posted and keep them all on a big hdd just in case the world ends, so just watch it from there.
i know how to install ad blocker im just too lazy and also i dont want people to think i browse reddit and also the internet is pretty much dead to me i like seeing ads so i can just close the page and assure myself whatever was there wasn't worth reading which has actually improved my quality of life overall.
Who remembers being the designated VCR troubleshooter in the family?
>when it would chew up the home recording cassette because it had deviations from the standard form factor because your parents were cheap
so many memories chewed up and spit out by that late model sony
Yes, we do.

i meant NO appreciation oh fuck
they see it through their phones
I used this hack when I was 12 and primarely used safari.
Autists are turbonormalfags; just too stupid to follow normal social rules, so they follow simplified, thomas the tank engine-tier tier watered down versions of social rules, depending on which sperg-community they decide to join.
The other day i was drunk at a party and the host complained about her smart TV being so hard to use and i had flashbacks from dealing with retarded users at work and instinctively shouted maybe the TV is smart but the user isn't kek
SmartTv are shit, integrated apps are slow and clunky
weird how IT websites have ads and trackings, they think his audience are too dumb for deploy PiHole and uBlock.

My mother literally calls Google Assistant "Mrs Google".
2bh, I also tend to call her that now. It's catchy.
>Do normies see plumbing differently?
>Do normies see medicine differently?
>Do normies see stock trading differently?
Using a computer doesn't make you special, bro.
Normalfags see all of those 3 things differently to me though.
Then again, I probably am more specialised in all of those except medicine.
Medicine was just due to having a severe reaction to a vaccine :^)
>Normalfags see all of those 3 things differently to me though.
Most people can't fix their own sink
Most people take pills to fix rabdom pain in their bodies without thinking on the consequences
Most people don't know about personal finances
These knowledge is unknown for most people. But I gueas college have you covered, lol.
No, that's just americans.
by LULZ standards, i'm a utter newbie homosexual; i use mint for browsing the web, dowloading torrents & play old boomer shooters, but i'm also able to navigate the terminal and privacy-minded enough to figure out how to block ads and use a custom dns resolver and avoiding social media.
this has given me a status as a hacker. i've had people ask me how to crack chrome.exe to disable ads, how one can install spotify on a car usb port or how one reinstalls windows when internet goes down.
to be a "hacker" today, being able to install a browser extension is enough to impress a zoomer.
>Do normies see the tech world differently?
Apparently normalfags think chatbots are sentient super-intelligent beings, a lot of them worship chatbots already (not just the cumbrains too)
>Do normies see the tech world differently?
yes, it's pretty obvious when you see the popular "tech" channel on youtube, none of them is about technology and hardcore coomsumerism is now the official, most used definition of the word.
it's the same shit that led boomtards to believe that zoomzooms are goodwith tech because they can scroll on a smartphone, they mixing consuming gadgets with being knowledgeable about them.
you can coomsume all the things and still know nothing about it, see linus from ltt for example.
Most people see technology as something between magic and a tool, and this is fine. You don't have to understand all the details of how something works to use it.
The only difference is tech jobs seem to attract a certain crowd of people who think they're above everyone else merely because they have a (often superficial) understanding of the tech everyone uses. So yes, people who only use tech see it differently than people who design it, but they also see the underachieving neckbeard staring at them from behind the genius bar.
>Do normies see the tech world differently?
yeah they know what it's like to have a wife and kids
>reating a computer like your wife
I have a wife (male)!
Most people only use smartphones and don't bother looking into how to actually get what they want out of them.
A lot of people also lack proper computer training and think their computer will explode if they do something not documented in the quickstart guide.
>A lot of people also lack proper computer training and think their computer will explode if they do something not documented in the quickstart guide.
If you know enough about debugging, this is actually correct.
The more you ignore protocol on most OSes, including windows, macOS and Linux, eventually the background processes will bug out to the point where your computer becomes noticeably bloated and buggy.
This isn't the user's fault either, it's poor OS design.
It just takes some experimenting and curiousity.
90% of the stuff I learned about computers was just me fucking around.
>Do normies see the tech world differently?
I fucking hate transexual newhomosexuals so much. They don't have the balls (literally) to call people homosexuals anymore.
normalfag is having a GF or having socially acceptable lifestyle
normie is just chan lingo for sheeple at this point
>normie is just chan lingo
"normie" is actual double chan shit that plebbit started spreading.
LULZ literally avoided it for a while, but I remember double chan using it as a meme initially and it was kinda funny for about 2 seconds before plebbiters arrived on mass in 2016.
Plebbit homosexualry is now so normalised here that even I'm forced to use their shitty shill wikis because no one maintains our wikis anymore.
I fucking hate plebbit.
>Sort by oldest
>2010 on LULZ alone
It literally predates dubble you fucking retard lmao
It gets better
>Search for it on /a/
We literally cannot go back farther on the archive, but there's a non-zero chance that it also predates reddit
>>Sort by oldest
>>2010 on LULZ alone
Well I wasn't on LULZ until like 2013ish, I used to lurk other boards mainly like /a/ and LULZ.
>actually it's /a/ 2008ish
Now I'm just confused.
But it definitely became more normalised by double's use because it became something to differentiate LULZ and double a bit.
Back in 2008, moot sat on the servers and collapsed the hard drives
"Normie" is classic weeb culture
Bollocks, look at how few the results are up until late 2012.
It was foreign cancer back then too and there are even posts calling it out in that archive.
>Back when there were less users on the site and the term was new, there weren't that many people using it
There were posters literally criticising it back then if you look. Stop normalising such homosexualry and admit it's homosexuals with no balls too afraid of saying "fag" because it's literally personally offensive to them, homosexual.
>There were people complaining that new words bad
Whoa you're really blowing my mind here
It was a sign of newhomosexualry AND, as we called it back then, moralhomosexualry because gays are the law and the establishment now.
Never heard anyone called a moralfag for uttering the n(ormie) word. It was always used to tell people whining about e-boi and gore to fuck off
I mean jesus christ this was back when it was edgy to say hail satan
>Never heard anyone called a moralfag for uttering the n(ormie) word.
It was implicit.
Because normalfags are implicitly also moralfags.
Why do you think we come here? To behave?
>less users on the site
not really, LULZ has declining in users since its peak in like 2013 or so
anyway this is such a weird thing to argue when the proof is right there, in the same archive youre looking at
>normie was a word that existed but saw very little use on LULZ
>normalfag was instead a large part of LULZ vernacular
>circa 2014, normie becomes far more used, especially where normalfag would have been used
>this coincided with a large influx of redditors/outsiders
>people at the time call it out as such
what more is there to it? The only thing you can try to argue is that LULZ users suddenly after many years switched from using normalfag to normies one day because ?????????????
Okay Normald McDorkald
>NORMIES OUT REEEEEEEEEE
thing was quite common on LULZ
That's a dumb frogposter meme which means they'd be electionfags
This is much older than election, newfriendo.
Oh scuse me, I was mistaken.
It's 2014 gamergoobers
REEEEEE was more 2013 and that developed probably from WRYYYYYYYYYYYYY to a degree.
That's well before my time, oldfag tier shit.
Really? I always thought it was an onomatopoeia of what the frogs yells when you pick them up without consent, hence why it was paired with Pepe.
Example of said sound:
>I always thought it was an onomatopoeia of what the frogs yells when you pick them up without consent
It was as well, but that was a mere coincidence and it spooked the fuck out of us. I didn't know they made that noise until much time after it was being commonly said. I just assumed it was wryyyyy shit.
Meme magic works in mysterious ways
Meme magic? Or strategic forum conditioning?
I can't tell the difference.
I would be surprised if it was a coincidence. There are many things meme wise that are not just confirmation bias.
Especially with the internet.
In fact the timing around 2011 for most of this shit being changed around the same time glownaggers did CP crackdowns on this forum and elsewhere is ESPECIALLY suspect.
No it was definitely criticised more on here than the other chan, hence why it became more common on here around 2013/14 ish.
Plebbit didn't help though.
I started to antagonise it around 2016ish though because it was clear some people were just too scared of calling others fags. Which is like people being too scared of nagger.
That had to be stopped.
It's kinda like how /a/ was antagonising newfags around 2009/10ish because we were fucking cancer to them. :^)
Also :^) is not banned any more and I am ok with this. Because :^) and ;_; should be the only 2 acceptable smileys (they're not called fucking emoticons) on here.
Lenny is still not acceptable.
This is the law given upon me by thy lord of the internet, Lain, as sacred holy scripture.
Yes normie always existed as a word, however, it was rare and sporadic in comparison to normalfag, until 2014-2015 when reddit came over en masse through /LULZ/.
I used to care about this a lot like a retard, had charts and everything but I haven't really cared or bothered to have this this stupid discussion about normies vs normalfag since like 2018.
I basically agree with
now. Normie evolved from being a redditor indicator to having it's own connotation that is a bit different from normalfag. In any case it's nearing on ten years here.
Also you can go back further on the archive with oldfrens, like 2005
This is all so tiresome.
Nowadays in the generals I spent so much time in, I see unironic failed normalfags, whining about not being normal and talking shit like claiming to have a waifu just to state that they wish to have a gf to cosplay their """waifu""' for them. And when called out, some people do agree, but there is that loud minority of redditors that support normalhomosexualry and hate such gatekeeping. And most people don't even give a fuck about quality and cancer that is spreading on the site. And I'm not even that much if an oldfag, I only joined in 2012, but I clearly see change in mentality of many anons and the influx of cancer that everyone just let slip by.
This is what normies see on a daily basis when you use their personal computer instead of your own.
no way it's actually that bad, this must be satire
whether you use a desktop or phone, normies see the world differently than you.
honestly I'm in zoomer tier with this cookie shit
is there a firefox plugin that just auto declines the cookies? every fucking shitsite seems to use a different interface with different fucking buttons every time for that bullshit
on phone I just press accept on that shit because I can't be bothered anymore
>google something on private ff window
>get the fucking cookie page every single fucking time
>it's not even a popup but a completely different page
ubo has annoyance filters that remove those cookie banners
But fucking BRAVE ON THE BROWSER DOESN'T LET YOU CHOOSE EXTRA FILTERS
hmm I might have had that turned on on my PC, so I'm probably seeing the cookie shit mostly on my phone and work computer
Nobody liked popups. Browsers started blocking them by default. So guess what? They invented a new type of popup that you cannot easily block.
>is there a firefox plugin that just auto declines the cookies?
For desktop Firefox, it's called "I still don't care about cookies", wish there was an alternative for mobile too.
You can add "I don't care about Cookies"' filter list to uBlock origin. That will work at least for the normal popup type cookie notices.
There's a reason why some teens just don't use the internet any more.
If I grew up with this cancer I wouldn't either and I'd just consider users of it insane. It's fucking garbage now.
the cursor and scroll movement really ties it all together, exquisite webm
>Do normies see
oh my fucking god...
these naggers don't deserve the fucking Internet.
what the hell did I just read
