Do you have any recurring fantasies or daydreams?

In high school I often fantasized about talking down a school shooter, thinking up scenarios where we traded extended, edgy dialogue. Now I daydream about being a great writer, although I've barely done any creative writing.

I daydream about winning the lottery every week I buy a ticket. I know it's seen as an absolute waste of money to buy lottery since the odds of winning the grand prize is astronomical... but for €2 I get to spend a full day or two thinking (and when I go to sleep, dreaming) about living a happy life surrounded by everything I could ever possibly need or want... a life of ultimate comfy. I know it's just a fantasy, but I think €2 it's a great price to feel joyful once a week. Sure, someone will say "But anon, you can dream for free", but it's not the same, there is no way (for me at least) to fake the delusional expectation.

I used to have a lot of fantasies about being some kind of hero that would save a bunch of people. It was more like the Zelda games and Ocarina was one of my favorites, I used to self-insert and fantasize all the time before I fell asleep about being in Link's role. I would do the sidequests, go through the dungeons, interact with Navi, all that cringe-worthy garbage. When I was not playing video games those were some of the only times I ever felt important and capable. In my dream world I was somebody who could feel useful and valued, somebody who can actually do something good. I still fantasize things like that to this day but it's harder because I don't have the attention span like I used to so I get sidetracked.

Pathetic. Just pathetic.

What does that even mean? You stream yourself 24/7 or something?
>> No. 29525 [Edit]
Oh, no. I'm not even sure if I'd be able to do the streaming thing and do it consistently enough to build a fanbase that would want to watch me play video games. What I meant by that is that I spend every day watching streams. I mean, with me being NEET, I could stream for hours every day if I felt like it and play video games all day everyday like I already do. I could probably do it if I had the proper equipment to stream gameplay from my devices.

I pretty much just go there to watch games that interest me and spam cute emotes of cute 2D girls that are available on a third party addon because they're free.
>> No. 29526 [Edit]
Which games do you search streams for?
>> No. 29527 [Edit]
Well, I don't really search for the games themselves as I'm willing to see anything new and interesting. Then again, I do for some reason watch the Food and Bob Ross streams way more than I should. I also sometimes go into the creative section and watch people draw stuff or make something interesting, or play an instrument. However, I do follow a few people that are entertaining to watch like Vinesauce and Cirno_tv, with the former being more of a normie jabroni while the latter feels like he wouldn't be too much of a stranger on this site, even if I have noticed some normie tendencies.

Being in twitch chat is an interesting experience as well. If the right people and content are there, it just becomes really fun, especially if you're knowledgeable about what is being played. Also, depending on who you're watching, you can use the BTTV/FrankerZ emotes to spam cute 2D girl emotes, even if they won't be seen all the time because of how it works, but people should still be able to know, if they know, that phrases like WanWan is the dancing Momiji .gif.

Fact is, sleep takes up a large fraction of anyone's life. Have a comfortable bed & a large fraction of your life is excellent.
Please tell me ways to improve the quality & volume of my sleeping.

I think the problem is that I bought one that doesn't flip over. I've tried sleeping on different ends on all different four corners, but nothing seems to have helped. Now where ever I try to sleep, I just roll into the sag, and it's only been a year or so. I'm highly disappointed and frustrated because this is the third mattress I bought in the last three years.
>> No. 29483 [Edit]
Where have you being buying your mattresses? I think you have been severely ripped off. I got a 10-inch-hight memory foam mattress for like €800 a couple of years ago and it's still perfect (and can be flipped over but I didn't have to so far. I've been gaining weight like crazy, to the point I'd consider myself morbidly obese now... and still no issues.
>> No. 29484 [Edit]
I think part of the issue is that i spend an abnormal amount of time in my bed. Whenever I'm watching anime or tv or something I do it while laying down in bed, and a lot of time i browse the internet from my bed as well.
>> No. 29524 [Edit]
I've been sleeping on the floor for about a year now.

At first it was because my family got a bad case of bedbugs and we didn't have the money to buy a new mattress.

I started to like it so I never got a new one. It's actually not that bad. Tried to find some actual research on it but just came up with advertisements and bro-science.

I found a few things claiming mattresses are actually bad for you because they slowly wear your back down. Seems like it might be bullshit but i lines up with my experience so I've rolled with it.

Another great sleep aid is a program called f.lux. Takes a while to get used to but makes you want to go to bed at a reasonable hour.

Not since the end of the fourth season it's not. I don't think it's a coincidence that the quality of the dialogue fell off a cliff the moment they ran out of books to adapt.

Its an unfortunate phenomenon, but people from lesser nations are often jealous of Americans. These are the types of people who buy in to nationalism, they mistakenly connect their own identities to the neurotypicals who actually run the show and they feel the need to take out their anger at their own smallness and insignificance and blame all their problems on others. So instead of trying to build themselves up in to what they really want (a nation better than America) they cloud their thought processes with anger and stay small and insignificant.
This guy was trying to discuss his favorite domestic TV shows, but all he could get out was "I hate America", his shame at his own weakness pollutes his brain so much that he has difficulty communicating effectively.

After seeing the immense popularity of the what bugs you thread, I decided that I would make a thread for people to post all the awesome things (big or little) in life that simply make you happy. I understand Tohno-Chan has a lot of gripes and resentments, but we cant all be negative all the time. After all, what is negativity if we have nothing to compare it too?

Which would you pick? Would having your memories remain intact or not with the red pill effect your choice?

>> No. 29444 [Edit]
It is tempting to take the red pill, but the past is the past, and I need to move on. It is just being older by five years; I can use the money to look as young as I want, within reason. Unless if you were dying or very old, you'd be a fool to take the red pill, at least considering that you'd be missing out on a lot of money.

I used to daydream about redoing childhood all the time until I realized it's not worth it. Even if I managed to get the chance to fix all my mistakes and return to my current age as a happier guy, I still don't want to have to deal with school, shitty abusive adult figures, being poor, living in the worst parts of town, having a slow computer with no internet, seeing tragedies happen all over again, having absolutely no one to connect with in the slightest (even moreso than the first time around)... the list goes on and on.

The present sucks, but at least it's not the past.

From a non-moral point of view you could say some forms of self-harm (like drug abuse) disrupt the society as a whole. A sensible law-maker would seek to limit those kinds of self-harm.

Isn't that what speed limits and necessitation of insurance laws are about?
>> No. 29493 [Edit]
Speed limits are also there to prevent people from crashing into you, causing property damage, or traffic jams that effect everyone. Seat belt laws on the other hand force people to protect themselves.

I believe the Jewish death toll from the Holocaust was greatly exaggerated, and the truth was warped in some way. I don't claim to know exactly what happened, or that the entire thing was a "myth", but there are a lot of inconsistencies with what was reported about it.

I absolutely believe in "The Crown".
This too. Lot's of inconsistencies, and I say this as someone whose jewsish grandparents got BTFO from Germany. I could probably sue the German government for reparations, but the paperworks is incredibly tedious.
