Even though I live in a second floor apartment I define myself as a basement dweller, urbandictionary.com defines it as male over eighteen with no formal education who continues to live at home with his parents and has no ambition to move out or contribute to society. His will to live is sucked by his daily marijuana regiment. He can be found working second shift at your local gas station. Lives in a perpetual "getting his shit together". An arguable definition that fails to include video game addiction and social awkwardness. Definitions aside, basement dwellers have been globally considered social castaways and by no means referred to as distinguishable citizens, sure, we have earned ourselves a reputation in the internet as anti-heroes but god forbid b dwellers from becoming role models of the real world, lol... the real world... it's a bit different now, isn't it? Society is no longer demanding us to go out there, travel the world, get that dream job, that promotion so you can become the best version of yourself cause now your best version is being toned down, unless you're a b dweller, in that case your usual slacker attitude, your no-contribution-to-society has become a following-the-rules-and-kicking-ass-at-it role model, holy shit! Basement dwellers are now even advicing normies how to spend their newly acquired reclusive lifestyles by cattering a selection of video games and media content, revenge is balance.
Same goes for weebs now that social networks are booming with all these live stream trying to fill in the void of social isolation, again, the I've-been-doing-this-when-nobody-was people are a bunch of freaks who were formerly known as weirdos but who now seem to have the higher ground.
I've even dread the thought that we're finally getting how animals feel locked up in their cages, maybe now we'll see having household pets with a different perspective?
Sure, this might all be temporary (or not) and things will go back to normal (or not). Come what may it certainly looks like the status quo is changing and we're at the verge of true sovereignty. (thunderstorm sound fxs)
