It's so full of double- standards it isn't even funny. Many people don't even open their eyes and bother to question the rules of society, and I was one of them. For a long time, I used to believe everything about America and its people was just super-fine, and great, and grand. Used to believe that Bush was doing the right thing even. Never even saw what I now see, which is the absolute brainwashing of society. It starts at birth, and your parents take part in it, unknowingly, as it is instilled deep in their subconsious as well. If you are a guy, when you grow up you are automatically expected to be rich, doing great, and have 50 women at your call. (the last bit isn't that bad, really) When this doesn't happen, the person is automatically branded a loser. Why? Because that's society. And for women, they're expected to be perfect angels, never yielding. Of course, this is widely debated now, and I think I wont get involved in that issue, at least in this file. And also, when I was brought up, I believed in Catholic faiths. I never even questioned the Bible, or my religion, or anything. Simply went along, trying my best to fit in, which, of course, is impossible for some. This all came to an abrupt end in 1992. At the beginning of 1992, a friend of mine known to some as Spartacus got a 2400 baud modem for his IBM compatible computer. I thought that was neat-o, and I was introduced to modeming. I've had a Commodore 64, and never had a modem, so I was in for a complete suprise. Both Spart and I were astounded at all the possibilites (or at least I was, who knows what he was thinking at the time). At first, he used it mainly for file purposes. Then he found doors, and he proclaimed them fun. I finally logged on as me on a few bbs's with my real name at bbs's like Ground Zero, a door gamer's heaven. These soon grew tiresome for Spart, but I still made the trek to his house to finish up Blue Devil in Global War. But it was not until I got my own computer and modem when the fun began. April 21, 1992: Got my computer, and a spiffy one at that. Got a lot of software from Spart, and immediately called up Ground Zero to get my gaming in. I had fun then, staying up nights just to get a game of SRE in. Until the Night Light incident, which I mark as a turning point for me in BBSing. On Night Light (one great BBS, I might add), the sysop added a function to the bbs called a gold system. This would take gold away from people when they went in doors. Now until then, I never heard of Tal Meta or hegz, or anyone really. Spart told me to start newscanning message bases, as I wasn't very popular. So I did, and I started posting. Then John Doe, now a reformed door gamer, made idiotic posts to keep getting gold. Over this, Tal and I would proceed to argue about him and about this gold system, which I didn't like. But this argument made me get more involved in message bases.. Then I heard from TnL that Cyber/Chat! was going up, a (then) 8 line system where you could chat with other users. Since then, I have been on constantly, talking to Tal, Hegz, Midnite, Ffejtable, and a host of others express their opinions, which at first seemed rather shocking to my mainstream mind. As I actually thought about what they were saying, it made a lot more sense than what I had previously believed. From their ideas, I made my own views, which were much different to my previous ones. Heh, some would probably say they corrupted my mind, but I think they opened it up, now I can't stand talking to previous "friends" who are just completely enraptured and trapped in society. The new society of people I met through C/C! and various places just made so much more plain sense! I can't tell you that these ideas are any more correct than the mainstream ones, as that is each individual's opinion, but they do seem more logical. Try calling Cyber Chat and Phoenix Modernz Systems, and open your mind. *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* *-* Phoenix Modernz Inc. :908/830-TANJ *-* *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* *-* Modern Textfiles Inc.
