Poopsocking. Let's talk it out.

Z S, Monday, 18 August 2008 21:43 (eleven years ago) link

It seems as though it would be just as quick to get up and actually use a toilet than...aim in the sock. Or however they do it.

Abbott, Monday, 18 August 2008 21:48 (eleven years ago) link

That was my first thought, too. But this is why I thought it would be helpful to talk it out, because I did some deep thinking on this the other day.

You're right, it would be much easier, more sanitary, and possibly quicker to use a normal toilet - but what about the kids? Kids who don't want their parents to know that they're up at 4am trying to reach level 60? If they live in a situation anything like my own as I grew up, the bedroom and bathroom doors are squeaky, the floors are creaky, and their mom is insane and hears everything that happens. So, to avoid alerting the insane mom, they poopsock it. That's the theory.

Z S, Monday, 18 August 2008 21:53 (eleven years ago) link

There are bucks to be made selling gamers custom Lay-2-B0yz with built in pooping facilities.

snoball, Monday, 18 August 2008 22:22 (eleven years ago) link

Wouldn't insane mom find the shit-filled sock eventually? IMO that's worse than finsing your son's crusty cum-stained socks or something.

Abbott, Monday, 18 August 2008 22:31 (eleven years ago) link

I dunno. Any kid who's poopsocking it probably already has a drawer for his socks that are full of cosplay fantasy...remnants.

Z S, Monday, 18 August 2008 22:36 (eleven years ago) link

Maybe switching to an all liquid diet would reduce or eliminate the need to, er..., eliminate. But then you'd risk ending up like the guy on the "jug o' piss" thread.

snoball, Monday, 18 August 2008 22:40 (eleven years ago) link

His old room is full of Da5ani bottles of fermented urine, but man, does he have some phat lootz...

snoball, Monday, 18 August 2008 22:41 (eleven years ago) link

I can't fathom how quickly I would have been murdered by my parents had it ever occurred to me to try something this nasty/idiotic.

HI DERE, Monday, 18 August 2008 22:42 (eleven years ago) link

I much prefer the term "catassing".

Nhex, Monday, 18 August 2008 23:15 (eleven years ago) link

I kind of respect these kids. They are internet pioneers. And some day, when they get to heaven, they will meet up with Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett and the Donner Party and have a lot to talk about.

Z S, Monday, 18 August 2008 23:20 (eleven years ago) link

These kids should be put down in every sense of the phrase.

HI DERE, Monday, 18 August 2008 23:22 (eleven years ago) link

Do they also wipe with the socks?

THERE'S GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY!

Abbott, Monday, 18 August 2008 23:36 (eleven years ago) link

Just go with the door open, duh.

Leee, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 03:09 (eleven years ago) link

The bedroom door. The squeaky floor!

Z S, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 03:14 (eleven years ago) link

Once they (hopefully) outgrow this shit (no pun intended) here's never going to be a good time to disclose this sort of activity; this will be the big secret that they're going to keep from wives and boyfriends. Some real pent-up future shame here.

forksclovetofu, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 04:48 (eleven years ago) link

I think these people are already far beyond shame.

snoball, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 09:48 (eleven years ago) link

I bet one guy did this. Then other people made it a phrase to mean not leaving your console/computer for a long time-- a feat as easily achieved by, say, eating the food that these types often eat (pizza with extra cheese coes to mind. You won't have enough offal to fill a sock for a week).

Will M., Tuesday, 19 August 2008 15:22 (eleven years ago) link

The bedroom door. The squeaky floor!

Hrm, yr right, I didn't think this through; the sock is probably the best way to go.

Leee, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 16:43 (eleven years ago) link

Wait wait wait, CAN they not play on LAPTOPS, which they bring with them while twisting a log off on the toilet proper? (In the "Hackers 2/Kevin Mitnick Story" drinking game, you drink every time a person uses their laptop on the toilet.)

Abbott, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 17:09 (eleven years ago) link

thread should have been a liveblog

cozwn, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 17:56 (eleven years ago) link

sock should have been a Tupperware bowl

David R., Tuesday, 19 August 2008 18:42 (eleven years ago) link

ppl on my freshman hall shat in a tupperware bowl and microwaved it in the lobby

Curt1s Stephens, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 20:24 (eleven years ago) link

(I don't think they were poopsocking though)

Curt1s Stephens, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 20:24 (eleven years ago) link

Wait wait wait, CAN they not play on LAPTOPS

YA SRSLY. Which makes me wonder how long it'll be before the various MMORPGs are available via iPhone/cell phone (if they're not already).

Charlie Rose Nylund, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 20:48 (eleven years ago) link

any MMORPG which is made available for wireless play on an iPhone is going to be redolent with concessions to the casual XX phenotypes, WoW catassers won't stand a chance

I knew a catasser. I had a friend who even lived with the catasser for a time. Oh, the stories. Anyway this is completely indefensible and ruins all the furniture in your house. Bubbles from The Wire has more self-respect.

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 20:53 (eleven years ago) link

I wonder what percentage of poopsockers are "out". Let's say we can confirm that there are 100 outed poopsockers. I would guess, conservatively, that maybe 95% of poopsockers are still in the closet. So that would make 2000 poopsockers in total.

Toy with the numbers a little bit, and you've got a poopsocker epidemic.

Z S, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:04 (eleven years ago) link

epidemicPANDEMIC

Z S, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:05 (eleven years ago) link

lol Tom, that was the dude who was caught stealing underwear because he couldn't bear to stop playing WoW long enough to do laundry, yes?

HI DERE, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:06 (eleven years ago) link

oh indeed it was

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:31 (eleven years ago) link

also Z S I hate to pop your balloon but you do know Penny Arcade made a similar joke a waaays back?

http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2006/06/16/

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:32 (eleven years ago) link

I would play an MMORPG called PANDEMIC

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:34 (eleven years ago) link

I would not play an MMORPG called POOPSOCKING

HI DERE, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:34 (eleven years ago) link

Actually a post-apocalyptic POOPSOCK PANDEMIC would be interesting, a world overrun by feral cats and unpaid water bills

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:36 (eleven years ago) link

It would at least have a built-in explanation as to why the NPCs are always just letting you walk in their front door and smash open all their stuff to look for goodies

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:37 (eleven years ago) link

I didn't know, Tom. But the more people who are exposed to poopsocking, the better, IMO.

Z S, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:37 (eleven years ago) link

Idiocracy can be viewed as a dystopic poopsocking tale.

Z S, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:38 (eleven years ago) link

I would poopsock if they released an MMORPG called PANDEMIC

cozwn, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:51 (eleven years ago) link

at first I was all pronouncing "catassing" as one word with the a-sounds of catan and carcassone

but it's just a contraction of cat assing isn't it?

cozwn, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:52 (eleven years ago) link

no it's MORE than that

it's a WAY OF LIFE

HI DERE, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:52 (eleven years ago) link

Yeah, srsly. There's a certain lack of respect around here.

Z S, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 21:54 (eleven years ago) link

Anybody else find this term nauseating?

I lived with an ur-cat asser in college who spent most days retreated to his private bedroom with wall covered in media and floor covered in catshit. He played and downloaded hundreds of quake levels. One time, while LANing with him, he had a near total breakdown of the "that's cheating!" variety and we had to take a few hours just to get him to stop screaming and calm down. Poor guy. I wonder where he ended up?

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 22:01 (eleven years ago) link

would you believe I had to turn moderate safesearch OFF before I could get a decent GIS for "catassing"?

cozwn, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 22:04 (eleven years ago) link

you know

can some one post some pictures of poopsocking

cozwn, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 22:06 (eleven years ago) link

Laptops on the can = burnt thighs, surely!

Leee, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 22:17 (eleven years ago) link

I thought catassing was when you took out large-gage earrings and as they shrunk they looked like cat assers. What is it in this context?

Will M., Wednesday, 20 August 2008 16:54 (eleven years ago) link

Laptops on the can = burnt thighs, surely!

I have repeatedly tested this, it is a MYTH!

Z S, Wednesday, 20 August 2008 17:30 (eleven years ago) link

oh well.

forksclovetofu, Wednesday, 20 August 2008 19:45 (eleven years ago) link

Burnt thighs? Hello, this is why one takes the three-weeks old issue of NYT that's always sitting around for toiletroom reading material & places it under the laptop. I believe this technique was employed in 'Hackers 2/The Kevin Mitnick Story.'

Abbott, Wednesday, 20 August 2008 20:16 (eleven years ago) link

I only use my laptop on the can

cozwn, Wednesday, 20 August 2008 20:38 (eleven years ago) link

I am not catassing when I do so

cozwn, Wednesday, 20 August 2008 20:39 (eleven years ago) link

This thread has forced me to reevaluate my lifestyle.

did you guys see the story on how Square Enix is going to adjust the difficulty on FFXIs' epic battles because a bunch of people went on an 18 hour raid against this one boss and still lost?

Excuse my non-smoking naivete, but why would one chain-smoke what seems to be 1/5 to 1/3 of a cigarette at a time?

I don't understand your question, Nhex?

THERE IS NO VULCAN DEATH GRIP (Will M.), Wednesday, 24 September 2008 20:55 (eleven years ago) link

I do; most of the cigs in those pictures appear to be smoked only a 2/3 of the way down. Why smoke so many but leave so much tobacco on each cig?

I still don't get it? Please, humor me. Are you saying that all those are smoked filters? I thought the filter end had a different color on the outside.

Nhex, Thursday, 25 September 2008 11:56 (eleven years ago) link

the lady smoked all the way down to the filter

what looks like remaining cigarette is actually just filter, which is the same colour (white) as the body of the cigarette; if you look closely you can see the gold band which separates the filter and the cig

limey (cozwn), Thursday, 25 September 2008 12:03 (eleven years ago) link

filters that big she was probably smoking 100s; which means she's probably smoking 3 times what you and forks thought she was and is probably a very unhealthy person : /

limey (cozwn), Thursday, 25 September 2008 12:04 (eleven years ago) link

Ohhh, I see. I was misunderstanding your wording, Nhex.

Yeah looks like big ol' 100s.

THERE IS NO VULCAN DEATH GRIP (Will M.), Thursday, 25 September 2008 19:42 (eleven years ago) link

Man those are some big ass filters then.
And I clearly don't smoke.
And I don't think there was ever a doubt this was an unhealthy person.

You'd need to give up all fiber, otherwise you'd have a mess on your hands. Although if you're doing it already you're probably not caring much about unintended consequences.

Because poopsocking may seem like all fun and games at first, but that 3rd week is really fucking tough.
