Stay in the car, lock the doors and...
Oh fuck I spoke too soon. Now she's screaming her head off by staring at the body standing outside the car in plain view. Goddamn it.
My name is Dirk Yaple. I live in Austin, Texas and I go to a magnet high school which I’m sure as hell lucky to go to (I love school, but hate lots of homework). I spend my a good amount of my time slacking off, though when I am motivated enough I can fly to the moon on my own. I own my own blog where I share my opinions as well as vent about the things going wrong in my world sometimes. I’m very laid back and love to laugh and a very moral person, though people may be offended by some things that I might say.
I live my life not caring what people may think of me, also known as “not really giving a shit”, which sums it up just as well. I tend to not take life too seriously, which despite people thinking that means I’m suicidal or depressed, actually means that I’m impossible to be offended, nearly impossible to be angered, and most of the time I’m happy because I’ve stopped taking things seriously (note: this does not mean I can’t take things seriously when I need to; I can). I love to laugh, and I love to make others laugh, and I aspire to become a well known comedian like George Carlin someday, and possibly inspire someone else to take a similar path. I have an analytically based train of thought, and am swayed mainly by logic and evidence rather than emotion. School is a big aspect of my life, although I believe children should have the option to, at least by high school, be given a little more freedom in terms of their education, given I don’t want to have to memorize history or analyze literature as much as I want to do math and science; I also think that kids should be able to pick what kind of learning (as people learn in different ways) they’d like to do in school. Politics, at least in America, to me is one big circlejerk, and is not a field I’d want to go into (I’m a very honest person). I’m all for gay marriage, because fuck them, if they wanna get married, it’s none of my business. I’m also pro-choice and believe abortion should be safe and legal everywhere, although studies have shown that making birth control legal and obtainable has proven to lessen abortion rates; mainly though, I’m pro-choice because I think a woman’s body is hers to control, fuck me, right? I believe religion should have no influence in politics whatsoever unless they have agreed to be taxed (“if these church people want influence in government, let ‘em pay their fucking admission price like everybody else!”), but until then, we should get rid of everyone in the government who believes abortion and gay marriage are the two biggest issues the world is facing.
I’m an atheist, and certainly happy about it (I’m not sure if you guys could tell already...), although in some places I might be killed for saying those words, although that isn’t the minimum of what might happen (I might be passed up for a job or discriminated against), so allow me to clear up some things about my atheism. I’m not the kind of atheist that will shoot down any post that mentions the word “god”, if you’re just sitting there saying you’re a christian, good for you, I don’t care (when I do comment on these kind of posts, I’ll try to keep a deist POV so I’m not attacking anyone or anything like that). However, if your post about god mentions anything negative about gay people, atheists, science, or just bashes anyone/anything in general, I’ll go ahead and be that guy. I may post material about some aspect of religion- either the principles of the religion or the actions of a religious group- that I openly denounce as bullshit or harmful to society, but if you’re offended, you’re offended, I ignore your bullshit, you ignore mine, simple as that; If you tell me “well, my church isn’t like that!” or “but my family isn’t abusive!”, I’ll simply say, “yeah, did I mention your name?” no, I didn’t, so shut up about it, people are different, get over it. Should any religious person find themselves curious about atheism, ask me and I’ll gladly answer your questions (though this video might clear up plenty of misconceptions).
I have lots of things that I like and things which interests me, as given for pretty much everyone. A few of the things that interest me include:
Science fiction, which always interested me
Math and Science, being a logic minded person
roleplaying and daydreaming, allow me to make my own stories, and roleplaying allows others to give me ideas
reading and writing, I love reading, and I want to start writing my own material more often
humor and making others laugh, I’ve always had a talent for this
and philosophy and deep thinking, which really interest me
Among the things I love are:
Redditing, which I am addicted to
video games such as Minecraft, though not limited to just Minecraft
cool music such as Celldweller.
sleeping and dreaming, and I aspire to become a lucid dreamer (it’s like a holodeck in your brain. WHOA DUDE)
being a nerd/geek, given I go to a school that’s 90% nerds and geeks.
Conversely, just as there are things I like and am interested in, there are things I utterly despise. Among these things, I despise:
poor grammar, which just implies unintelligence
those that use emotion over reason or reject reason fully, because these tend to not be ideal friends
mean people (although I can be mean sometimes), usually those who are just being mean
The easily offended, whom I dislike because they get offended over every single little thing
English and Social studies (the only two classes I’m ever in danger of failing, though that’s mainly because of projects)
people with no sense of humor, just learn to laugh
my pollen allergies, and living in Austin, that pretty kills me during the spring
getting up early, PLEASE DEAR GOD LET ME SLEEP IN
chain posts/likewhoring (if you plus me into any of that, I won’t participate), in fact, I’ll just report these
Last of all, if you circle me, good for you, but I have a few conditions. Be aware that I won’t follow you back unless your profile has at least some interesting content or unless you occasionally like or comment on one of my posts (try and give me some acknowledgement that you’re there). Next, if you end up liking one of my posts, I don’t want you to simply comment ‘lol’, just like the picture! Just do that! How hard is that!? Last of all, If you’re offended with anything I post or hate a specific thing I post, do one of three things: you can debate me on the subject, I’d be happy to engage in a discussion with you. You can also ignore those posts, which I’m sure everyone would enjoy, or you could also simply uncircle or block me if it ends up being too much for you. Apart from that, I have no problem with anyone who’d like to be my friend or get to know me. Thanks for reading!
