Default Explain me....

I am probably too old for some aspects of MTF but please give me a reason for some threads I saw on this forum.

When there is so many things to do in life, even just helping people or smile with your parents / siblings / children or go for a walk.

Is there so much boredom in some lifes that you should post a thread where people are posting ten times a day to count down from 1 million to zero ?

Or to create a false tournament where players get games when fan posts.

I can understand a lot of things, passion must be the motor in life.

Better if you are the center of this passion (I mean the artist or the sportsman or...) but it is ok too if you are just a fan.

But creating a full fake world make of boredom and wind ????

We just get one life, and you will get no payback for the moments you waste.

So for some, I will get some advice from my age andmy previous errors, WAKE UP !

I can understand.

And hopefully people have different tastes and different passions.

But that is not my question.

What is the goal and/or the pleasure you can get from counting down 1 million to zero by posting ten times a day ?

Is it just time wasting ?

Or in what way could you be satisfied if a tennis player wins a "fantasy draw" game ?

TBH, I better understand second case because your vote can change the results (uninteresting result to me but probably not for those mixing popularity and tennis) but the first one

There are only few users who post in the million countdown iirc. As for posting in other parts of the forum, different things work for different people. Some people may spend a couple of hours every watching some TV show or whatever, some people may build small ships or play bridge, everyone usually has some hobby, and I don't see why this one should be worse then some other.

You get pleasure when watching TV, or building ships. There is an act and a result. And anyway a road and a choice.


But posting a number you can't change and you can't choose.

Where is goal road and pleasure.

Obviously some people have a hobby being a forum zombie and posting daily 100 posts in different parts of the forum.
Others like being a tard and jumping if their idol gets mentioned in any negative way to defend him.

Why could it be worse?

No answer for the first group of people.
For the 2nd one, they get extremely tedious by the end of their posting career...

Too many people hating on the "1 million to 0 thread" recently. Just because it would take 11 years to hit 0 if someone posted in there every 6 minutes.

Indeed. Why would anyone be so bored to make such a thread? I understand a lot things, but I'm confused?

Like I said, there are like 2 or 3 people who post there regularly, maybe they just have nothing better to do? It's not exactly massively popular.

It started with telenovelas back in the early to mid 90s, and even before that with Dynasty back in the 80s... there is a long tradition here.

Hi Crvena Zvezda,
I have always respected your opinions and posts on here, so I will attempt to answer your question about the 1,000,000 to 1 thread.
I have in the past posted in that thread. I do not at the moment, but I might in the future.

Why? I see it as one way of saying, "Hi, I'm here and I'm a fellow human being, and I have a few seconds to spare to greet you, whoever you are."
Yes it's juvenile, but no worse than text conversations that go somewhat along the lines of,
"Hi John"
"Hi Peter"
"Hi"
"Hi"
"All right?"
"All right! You?"
"All right"
"Good. Busy?"
"No. You busy?"
"No."
"Ok then"
"Ok"
"Bye John"
"Bye Peter"
"Bye"
"Bye"

That does not really explain why people post more than once or twice a day, but perhaps if there were a hundred people using the thread instead of a handful each one would post less frequently.

As the creator of those "false tournaments" that you talk about, I feel I should answer this.

I do help people, I do smile with my parents and my brother, I don't have children, and I do go for a walk. However, I still make those "false tournaments" because I want to. And for me, that is reason enough. I may not be as worldy wise as you are due to you age, but I do not feel that every action of mine should be measured in terms of the impact it has on my life or the lives of the others. I want to is generally enough motivation to do harmless things.

I am fully aware that it is not the most "useful" thing to do, and that I most likely will not be remembering moments from the draw game on my death bed or at any other time. But, I don't care. I am not trying to maximize payback.

Also, on a lighter note, I believe in rebirth. So that last argument does not apply to me. Probably gives me a few more moments to waste
