    "Deal with it".

    The free pass of every asshole.
    Why should I waste effort understanding some people are less tolerant to asshole-ish behavior than others, and act accordingly, when I can just, as the narcissistic spoiled manchild I am, keep acting like an asshole behind internet distance or anonimosity safety and just tell everyone else to deal with it.
    Fuck them. I'm not going to put any effort. They're the ones wrong here, clearly. Other people are assholes too, why should I put effort into being different?

    ^
    That line of thinking grinds my gears above all.

    Different experiences yield different attitudes,of course. The reason I asked is also because I know myself.

    I would like to say I have a high tolerance for stupidity and can ignore things without groaning or rolling my eyes or commenting, but truth is? I don't. And I know I also don't have much in terms of a filter, when I know I really should. So, something like FB's block-function? That's a godsend. Because I don't have to see the asinine comments and I can't be tempted to snark either. And while I'm getting better at ignoring stuff, some people just tend to push allllll the buttons, intentional or not. And that's where a block-button comes in handy, I suppose.

    Public forums are public discussion platforms. There exist private forums that are much more strictly regulated so that could always be an option.

    Honestly that's just a lesson from Nature. Can you imagine if our immune system didn't take such an approach?

    It's a pretty shitty response though because it's circular. Basically it's also asking for shit. Let's see how well you "deal with" the bottom part of my leg broken off in your ass.

    It's not really a shitty response; like I said it's just something fundamental. I mean, it's pretty much the crux of any underdog story in our species culture. The few times that it's not, their generally regarded as fables due to the characters ending as they began, usually suffering for it.

It's not that I have regrets already... it is more that I am so uncertain and it pisses me off that I just don't know what path to take.
    Don't feel too bad. I graduated a 2 year college 3 years ago and have yet to get into a 4 year college, or decide which one to go into. I spent a year taking classes thinking I was going to a certain university but they refused to offer me any grants or scholarships, so now I'm not going there anymore, and that year of classes won't transfer to the two universities I'm considering now, so year wasted.

    The response to deal with it is usually just another deal with it though.

    "fuck you, you're an asshole!"
    "yeah, I'm an asshole, deal with it, asshole!"
    "hey asshole, fuck you just because fuck you, deal with that!"
    at this point anyone with a gun will have drawn it.

    Ironically that's probably because no one in that scenario is actually dealing with it.

    Exactly, no one deals, they just pull their guns and knives or hand grenade or whatever it is! So? Why are we fronting all the time if we just want to wreck shit?
