Some things I like:
4) Lengthy discussion
5) Pokemon from Heartgold and back (I’m not caught up on the current generation).
Feel free to ask about any of those things. Or other things; it’s all good.
What I’m currently listening to:
It’s running on TV right now too.
Good gosh this one hurts
As for the verse itself, it speaks to the constancy of God. I like change myself as a way of spicing up life, but it is always good and glorious to rest in our constant, eternally just and eternally true and faithful Christ.
This verse also has interesting implications for books like Hosea and other OT prophets. They spoke often of harsh judgment and destruction, but the same Christ was over His Israel as is over His Church. God’s mercy is colored by His judgment; in Christ we have a very real and enduring reminder of that which we have been spared. The Divine is not devoid of emotion. No, He feels powerfully for His own, and in Christ we see not a God of stoic observation, but a passionate, intense effort to strive for His ultimate purpose: unending redemption for His glory. He is a God who is determined to save His own. And this determined, tenacious Love is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
I’ve been really busy as of late. So that could use some prayer. Also I’m glad to announce I’m moving past “Julia” at this point (if you don’t remember what the heck I’m talking about, that’s my bro’s girlfriend I was in love with for a while). In fact I have a first date with someone this Wednesday! So yeah, I’m getting better. Still not totally there, but vastly improved from, say, two months ago. Thank God for that. My brother could use prayer as well. In general. Also the ministry I’m a part of (RUF, reformed university fellowship, if you’re curious) is trying to do more outreach and evangelism, and I want to be on board with that. Badly. SO for that as a whole.
In fact, I’ve decided I’m gonna apply for a job with RUF after I graduate here. So for that as well. I feel like I’m finally hitting a stride here, and I pray that momentum would power me through what has been in the past a very rough semester. And I’d like prayer that I’d give God His due glory in His work in my life.
Holy freaking crap.
Well, looks like I have a new username in the future. Thanks, brah.
That’s perfectly fine. just wanted to make sure I had the right place.
Did you get it?
Second, I find it interesting that he mentioned his parents in one of the original posts. Maybe he just needed an excuse to post work he’s probably very proud of himself for, or maybe they really discovered his UTV obsession, but it’s interesting that 1) he may be relatively young still, i.e. college age or younger or 2) he may live with his parents because of an already discovered and crippling mental dysfunction. Also worth noting: assuming he’s not lying about his parents, they’re still together. So the Archiver’s problems haven’t destroyed his family, at least not at the time of his posting the document. Since he only mentions them in one very brief statement, we can only speculate how his problems affect his family, or whether they even knew about them at all.
Third, we have to ask ourselves, as KYM, if this deserves an entry. Is it a noteworthy event that deserves its own page?
Freaking absolutely. This is, again, one of the most hilarious, disturbing, and entertaining things I’ve seen on the internet in an extremely long time. Bravo, /sp/, bravo.
I’m no psychologist, but it seems more likely that the Archiver has a delusional disorder of some sort than straight up autism. It is possible that he or she is autistic and is expressing a ritualistic behavior in collecting all of UTV’s posts, but it may be possible that, since the Archiver’s cognition and logic at least expresses normalcy within his delusions, he or she has some delusional and obsessive problem. “Autist” and “autistic” are commonly used insults on 4chan (and I’m not here to start a flamewar about the ethics or morality of this), but I don’t think that label fits here so easily. The Archiver may very well be autistic, but I think his obsessions are indicative of a different, deep seated, and enigmatic diagnosis.
This is, by FAR, the most hilarious, interesting, fascinating, terrifying, and depressing thing I’ve seen on the internet in quite some time. This is beyond freaking words. I feel like the raises way more questions than anything else, but let’s take a look at a few things, shall we?
First and foremost, I’m not convinced this Archiver guy is autistic per se. Obviously he’s got some serious issues, but based on his posts I think he has some different disorder than autism. Now, a user here named cookiex mentioned in the very first Archiver image uploaded to KYM that this reminds him of an incident involving a “humanbeing151.” That name led me to a Cracked article here (and the humanbeing151 story is #2 on that list) explaining that this user, humanbeing151, was a guy who had a terrifying obsession with P. Diddy. Now whether or not our Archiver and humanbeing151 have the same problems, or if that comparison is even fair, is up for debate. But you do see a common thread of crazy in these two instances. Also, you see completely dysfunctional, delusional obsession.
At last, the mystery is finally solved…
Behold, KYM. Look upon your master. And softly weep tears of submissive joy.
You’re awesome. Thanks.
So did this thread get archived? Anyone?
He’s a specific poster this guy just started stalking for some reason we’d never understand, I’m sure.
Hey, just checking in when I can. I’d offer some commentary to this verse (and I plan to by the end of the week) but at the moment, I’m just gonna take a day or so and think about it.
Requests: I am still kinda struggling with what we’ve talked about before, but some new details have emerged. I’ll besure to fill you Iin, but I wanted to let you know before handwhat’s going on.t
HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU
I’d always thought this should be a thing.
“I’ll take ‘things that happened’ for $200, Alex.”
My, uh, difficulty we’ve already talked about. Things have gotten generally worse for me personally, though I’ve obviously not let that difficulty extend to Julia, nor in my limited contact with him to Jonathan. But still, it’s hard to handle. That feel. That feel when no gf.
Also for the shooting victims and families in DC this morning. It hurts a lot to hear about these sorts of attacks, and it’s very eerie to me to see images of street corners I know pretty well and walked not two months ago. I know it’s a busy area, and I can’t even imagine the terror that unfolded.
