Lets play a bit of a game.
Say the first word that comes to mind when you see the previous post's word.
The old one has been on autosage for a long ass time, guys. Make a new one already. Old thread: >>24879
I had a friend who was Hungarian years ago. He had a Polish last name, though. He used to do this thing where people would ask him to say something in Hungarian, and he got so sick and tired of it that he would say "You take a horse cock in the ass" as a joke, and no one would know anything about it. The funny thing is that I knew about that insult years prior; I'm oddly pretty knowledgeable.
I have a similar experience with Mandarin. I can somewhat understand what people are saying if they come from Manchuria, but my own "accent" can be indecipherable, since I stumble on the tones.
If someone is speaking Japanese, I can usually pick up on what they are talking about even better than with Mandarin, but since I have little experience forming sentences, yet alone talking, I usually keep quiet.
Even with knowing "Erhua" Mandarin and Japanese, it still more often than not that I encounter people speaking something indecipherable, which could be anything from Korean to Cantonese. I simply can't parse it.
I learned English and Japanese so I could read and listen to media in those languages, not so I could talk to people. When I'm not at work, I hardly even talk to people in my native German.
I did eventually end up speaking both languages fluently, and at work I've become the guy who handles Japanese and Anglophone customers when they call, which makes the job a bit more interesting. But for years I was perfectly content with just playing my weeaboo video games and browsing my American nazi websites without ever talking to anyone in those languages IRL.
>I did eventually end up speaking both languages fluently
How? "End up" sounds like you've learned it passively without much effort, you said years but how many did it take you?
I'm almost exactly in the same position (imageboards about chinese cartoons instead of nazi sites though), so I'm wondering if I should start learning actively how to form sentences and express myself in Japanese or keep doing pure recognition.
me top right
If not being bad isn't enough to make you good, then why not just be bad?
If that's how you see it, give evil a spin. Let your desires be king. There's no reason to obey if you can't be forced to obey.
You'd make for a great parent.
Children have to learn what's wrong before they can do what's right, by learning earlier they can apply a wider logic earlier.
Of course you have to prevent them from seriously injuring or killing themselves.
The reason there's so many spoiled kids and into adults is often because of coddling and enabling.
I think the greatest message here is self-discipline, so it doesn't matter where you are ethically.
I think that the good behaviour arrow should also point towards negative consequence as well, just like choice can result in misbehaviour.
I think you're kind of writing your own rules into it. "e.g." just means they're tangible examples of positive consequences.
So if your goal is murder, rape, theft or whatever. So long as you don't get caught, or perhaps you do and get the spin you want; the graphic isn't necessarily wrong.
I disagree with the graphic on a few points as successful people don't necessarily have manners. Assertive people rarely give people the space they want, but just enough so they get what they want from them.
It just goes to show again that morality is not linked to reward, whether it should be is a much more complicated question than this thread can discuss.
I know we're a lazy bunch and we don't go out that much but I'd still like to propose you a photography thread as it can be funny like I'm imagining it.
It's simple. Use any device that let's you take photos and report back with something interesting you found. It can be anything. Outside your window, in your room, in your backyard, in your garage or house. It doesn't have to be any kind of professional stuff, although that's okay of course.
Please limit photos to a maximum resolution of 2560x1920 or something around that area for everyone's viewing pleasure. The photos have to be new and not something you took last year. がんばって!
I found a marshmallow on the ground walking home today I was overjoyed with this find, an I wanted to share this with all of you it's these little things that make me happy in life :3
Did you eat it? Don't lie to me.Post edited on 21st Sep 2015, 8:50pm
Sorry you just struck me as a person that would.
How pleasurable it is to see my post from 2.5 years ago about my post from 3 years ago!
Because the last thread, http://tohno-chan.com/ot/res/15686.html, is now on auto sage.
Does anyone else find human reproduction completely revolting?
I didn't use to, but now I do.
cervical bukkake is actually kinda my thing
I thought I had already been exposed to it all, but it seems I still have a lot to learn.
What's a suitable automobile for the tohno-chan veteran?
A 4rd, of course. I think most of us ib4f users have been forced to leave our hiki ways by now.
They say you learn something new every day. Let's see if that statement is true!
ITT post something new you learned today. Trivia knowledge is more than welcome.
I learned that waka/iichan is back.
I learnt the difference between noir and neo-noir.
Noir was heavily dependent on the era it was released in. It was a time when overt sex and violence was forbidden in film and technological limitations prevented the presence of colour however it was these very restrictions that caused noir to have the impact that it did. With those restrictions lifted, violence and sex have to be much more overt to have the same emotional impact on today's desensitised audience than what was necessary for the audiences of the '40s.
Neo-noir is an attempt to create the same impact that noir did despite the technological and cultural changes that have occurred since the '40s. Some believe that noir to be an inimitable cultural phenomenon that will only ever exist within the bubble of time that was present during its creation. Others have continued to experiment with the neo-noir genre and prove otherwise.
Personally, after watching Chinatown, I can safely say that I don't get it. I'll probably need to watch it again to get it though. Preferably with subs since I seemed to have missed most of the dialogue.
Yesterday I learned that x64 Windows has only one HAL.DLL, because the x86_64 is so standardized that there's little configuring OEMs can do. x86 versions of Windows have a few HAL.DLLs for the inclusion or absence of stuff like APIC.
Today I learned there are 100% Animal Crossing speedruns. They average for 70 hours but the world record is 63 hours. And the runners don't take breaks.
It used to be that if you google 241543903 you get images of people sticking their heads in a freezer. Now googling 241543903 brings up images instructing people to google 241543903 to see images of people's heads in freezers.
Any of you guys got any pets?
You made me look up Show by Rock and it looks so moe.
I'm a bit old for this kind of series nowadays but if i ever get a happiness burst again, i'll watch it.
The artstyle hit me deep, i can only hope the anime is as fun as the chara designs are.
>i can only hope the anime is as fun as the chara designs are.
I got some bad news for you...
To elaborate; While the anime features some fantastic character designs and even some nice music here and there the rest of the anime is poorly written and directed. A major issue many had with it was the regular use of CGI during long segments of the series, typically whenever the bands would perform if memory serves correctly. I'm not even talking about cost saving corner cutting gci versions of characters used during hard to animate segments like many anime do. They'd transform into furry nendoroid versions of themselfs that looked like something out of the Sonic universe. Oddly enough too etotama aired in the same season and did something like that too with it's characters. Difference being etotama tried to make the characters look 2D during those segments while Show by Rock went for a look that made them look like figurines, which even the ED alludes to.
Finals this, finals that...
Is it just me or does it seem like every person on the internet is attending classes in some form or another? Do people destroy their computers when they finish school or do they just attend schools for all eternity? It feels rare to meet people online who work regular jobs and who don't still have homework to do on the side, or who are truly NEET for that matter.
Those children are just more vocal. You tend to be more of an attention whore in your childhood/puberty but this hopefully stops after reaching adulthood.
>To be fair, the people I've met who work 40hr jobs have some of the most boring and uneventful lives imaginable.
That's what I used to think, and then I started meeting uni/college students. Jesus are they a bore. Completely unbearable. Compared to that the couple of full time employees that have a habit of blogging outside of their non-existent blogs are fairly entertaining and they even have an actually funny work anecdote to share once a month.
Yeah I guess in retrospect some folks do occasionally have amusing stories of weird customers and coworkers.
>or do they just attend schools for all eternity?
This is my aim. I hate work and the government won't let me be NEET in peace, so why not?
Is Loli/Shota allowed here? It's technically illegal.
I deleted my stashes all a long time ago out of paranoia.
They'd have to raid your house to bust you anyway. So unless you're getting cops in your house you're safe. You'd think they'd have their hands full with just real cp.
Then again, there's a case from Swedistan where a guy got jailed for having too extensive a doujin collection. No idea how they got him.
I would be fine with it, but then again,my name and address are not attached to the servers.
Also the map is inaccurate, because the US constitution allows loli and shota under free speech, so even if yo are charged, it would take the world's most ineffectual lawyer to not get that overturned.
I am in a state in red, and have bought doujinshi hard copy in another adjacent state in red, with underage characters, and nobody has had an issue.
>my name and address are not attached to the servers.
Neither are mine, but I'm paranoid what can I say?
Again with this faulty map.
>Prohibits computer-generated child pornography when "(B) such visual depiction is a computer image or computer-generated image that is, or appears virtually indistinguishable from that of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct"; (as amended by 1466A for Section 2256(8)(B) of title 18, United States Code).
Japan has a similar setup.
>Prohibits drawings, sculptures, and pictures of such drawings and sculptures depicting minors in actions or situations that meet the Miller test of being obscene, OR are engaged in sex acts that are deemed to meet the same obscene condition. The law does not explicitly state that images of fictional beings who appear to be under 18 engaged in sexual acts that are not deemed to be obscene are rendered illegal in and of their own condition (illustration of sex of fictional minors).
The Miller test is here:
"Ashcroft vs. Free Speech Coalition" clarified the previously ambiguous law. Loli and shota is legal in all 50 states, although ignorance could lead to erroneous prosecutions.
