A stanford student and olympic athlete killed herself earlier this year.

i love how rationalists are so infatuated with idea and fantasies that they can only become miserable
the best part is that when they try to be happy, they try '''''''''meditation''''''''''' and they think that it is about ''having no thoughts'', they suck at it and so they remain trapped in their worthless humanist daydreaming that bourgeois trained them to value for the last 200 years.

>> No.13962711

You should practice your reading comprehension. I said "she's the one in the worst shape" meaning, out of the four in the image, she's the one in the worst shape.

>> No.13962728

You were giving it as a reason for her suicide. Why would she kill herself because she’s in the worst shape out of a group of Olympic athletes. That’s like committing suicide because you’re the poorest out of a group of billionaires.

>Catlin was born in St. Paul, Minnesota; she was a triplet, with a brother and sister.[3][4] She earned a degree in mathematics and Chinese from the University of Minnesota, and was studying at Stanford University for a graduate degree in computational and mathematical engineering.[3][5][6] In addition to her career as a professional road cyclist, Catlin was an artist and a violinist.[3][5]

>Catlin died on March 7, 2019, at Stanford University following an episode of depression.[7] According to her sister, she committed suicide months after suffering a concussion due to a cycling accident.[3][8][9] The university issued a statement saying that Catlin's roommate found her dead in her on-campus residence without any sign of foul play.[10] Following her death, her family donated Catlin's brain to the Concussion Legacy Foundation Brain Bank at Boston University for further research into concussions.

First, no one in the US will identify as "upper class". Secondly, middle class means you require wage income to maintain your standard of living. It doesn't matter how high that income is. You cannot be upper class if you rely on wages for anything.

Overachievers tend to be dead inside. There comes a level of accomplishment where you have to sacrifice your humanity and joy in order to achieve it. This is probably what happened to her, which meant she wound up feeling empty.

In Christianity, she's going to Hell. In Islam, she's going to Hell. In Judaism she's in stasis until the end time. In Buddhism and Hinduism she's reborn in a worse life. So pretty bad in any case, religion sure is comforting.

I'd imagine that for an ultra high achieving super-efficient individual whose every hour is planned in advance, the burden of getting terrible headaches, being forced to e.g. sit silently in a dark room for hours at a time, etc, would be difficult enough to swallow

Fuck you nigger. I’ll have you know I won awards 3 months in a row for being a sales associate at Best Buy and helping sell many products customers enjoy today. You’re pathetic, just because I work at Best Buy doesn’t mean I should be treated less differently. Sure I get paid $13 an hour +bonuses but it’s a simple life. Everyday I wake up, comb my teeth, brush my hair, finger my ass to make it to work to help sell corporate goods to better your everyday life. All I do is tell what the electronics do, shuffle around products, ring up shit but it’s a decent life.

I’m 25 and have my own apartment and I’m single, didn’t have to go to school and it’s ok. Would I love to do something else? Sure, but I don’t have the time and I’m stupid.

Something tells me you don’t even deserve to lick the very sweaty seat of my managers chair.

Fucking kids come in and think everything is so easy, huuurrrr durrrr look how smarts I am, let me belittle those around me. So far I’m doing great at bestbuy and I hope to get employee of the year and work there until I die.

Smoke weed everyday, work hard selling for dr shlomo baggins and enjoy what little time for hobbies I have

Anyways I bid you farewell

"You" end at death. If there is an awareness that continues, it does not carry memories with it. Read any neuroscience book.
Or even just think about what your comment would even mean with respect to those who get dementia.
