I vacuumed the carpet, wiped down shelves, and dusted in my room today. I also opened up the window to get some fresh air in here for the first time in a while.

Well this is a pleasant surprise, I didn't expect anyone else on TC anywhere to also watch Adventure Time. For some reason I just didn't think it would be a thing.

Rick & Morty's creator is the Lemongrabs' voice actor as well, if anyone didn't know.
>> No. 24969 [Edit]
I just watched Rick and Morty, and I agree, it's more entertaining. I find comedy about despair to be entertaining. Although, the constant despair kind of makes me appreciate the light-heartedness of other stuff, so I guess that's good. My favorite line was:

You find yourself a Death note book, what do you do with it? if you use it, who are the first five people you kill and how/why?

Not really sure how one name is more valid than another since they are all arbitrary, but okay.
>> No. 24964 [Edit]
I think he's referring to the Death Note. Several characters in the story use fake names but those with the demon eyes can still see the name they were assigned at birth, which is the only name that works for killing them. I assume legal name changes would function the same way as an alias because death gods have no reason to care about human laws.

what are some things that really bug you?
things that genuinely piss you off?

I thought it would be nice to have a thread to vent about any little annoyance, no mater how big or small.
Any and all complains about the world around you are welcome here!

She's the type of old person that can't remember passwords to save her life and doesn't understand they should be kept private.

It's hard not to know it when she uses the same one for everything and its so easy to guess.

I hope this MAL problem gets solved soon.
My spreadsheet is fine but I use MAL with Taiga for anime I'm still watching and it really bugs me seeing all these entries with over 9000 episodes or renamed titles. I wish I knew about this before, I would've let the thing in offline mode.

I'd like to start another dream thread, if that's all right. I'll go first.
You know how when you're a fan of something like anime or scifi or similar things in your teenage years parents will try to buy stuff for you? My dad and stepmom bought anime\manga related shit at yard sales a lot. Sometimes it was good, sometimes it was off the mark.
Well, in my dream I'm still in high school. I'm sitting there playing Xbox when my dad & stepmom walk in and yell that they got me something at a yard sale. I'm think to myself, "well, probably shit, but I might as well see," and go to check it out.
I walk into the kitchen and on the table is a box full of stuff from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
I get more excited and go to see what it is. There's every episode in raws and fansubs on
VHS, some uniforms, figurines, and even Shinjis' fucking tape recorder with the tape he listens to inside it! All the merchandise seems to be older and seems like it was directly imported from Japan. I ask where they found it.
It cuts to a yard sale with a slightly sad fiftyish woman in her front yard. She talked about how her son loved this show and whatnot, and seemed very sad. She sold it all for about 10-20 dollars.
I take all the stuff out and find a suicide note. Her son had gotten into anime in the
eighties while in high school and was completely inept and friendless. He grew obsessed with
Evangelion and felt a strong kinship with Shinji because he was such a fuck up. He grew older
and couldn't find anyone to share his interests with, became more and more of a recluse, and
killed himself in the late nineties, which I recall being a shame since the internet as of
96, when he killed himself, could have given him a place to talk to others and feel less alone. I realized he was "an otaku of another generation." I hung up his note and saluted it. I then went to watch his tapes and realized that he had dubbed it himself in case he ever met anyone who wanted to share his joy. I inherited his legacy. His mother had cleaned house and ended up giving me a record of a hikkikomori life.

Found myself in what seemed to be another post apocalyptic setting (I sure do dream about those a lot) It was the dead of night. me and a small group were taking refuge in an abandoned prison.
Not all turned out to be as it seemed when it became clear we couldn't leave, we were trapped. spot lights bared down on us making it hard to see anything outside. Before I knew it most of the group had gone missing, presumed dead. A new group was lead into the complex. Apparently they brought groups in, did god knows what with them, then brought in another but somehow a few of us eluded them and stayed alive. can't rember the outcome if any.

I was In a large building with a friend trying to live in the basement undetected. One day we know we might be found so we go in one of the backmost rooms. The room has a full sized bed, a table, and a lamp we do not turn on inside. There are three doors: one to the hall, one to a closet on the left, and a third locked on the right. We are there for a while when we hear someone coming from the hall. My friend goes to the left closet and gives me the key to the door locked on the right. I enter to find a nicely decorated bedroom. I look around quietly just to make sure nobody is there. I look behind a curtain hiding a large part of the room to find a bed with someone lying in it. When i see that I run to the door as fast as I can and try to unlock it. I don't remember what happens after this, until later. The next day the owners of the building are confronting us and kicking us out. The person I saw laying in that bed was particularly angry because "I turned him gay and he can't go back"

I almost never have dreams, and when I do they usually have to do with anxiety and terror. I almost never have dreams that are surreal or weird, almost all of them have to do with school

Do you like America?

That's a bit different, if culture made up a nation the U.S. should be >10 different countries. There's Cascadia, Texas, The Confederacy, Yukon, Natives, etc, all radically different cultures. The only reason they're all grouped together is convenience and resistance to change.
>> No. 24893 [Edit]

Culture is defined more by the people living within a set of borders than by the borders themselves. Like >>24890 said, the US has at least 10, I would say a lot more, distinct cultures living within its borders. For instance, the culture of white, middle-class people living in a suburban area of a city is vastly different from the culture of black people living in a poorer urban area. Hispanics have their own culture, we also have immigrants from all sorts of places living here who have their own little subcultures as well. There are also cultures within cultures, for instance I am basically part of the white middle class culture, but I don't have a whole lot in common with most other people within that culture. Most people living in my neighborhood don't have apartments packed wall to wall with anime stuff, and I don't watch football or American Idol. There's crazy redneck southern culture, but in a lot of the major cities down there the culture is not that different from the city culture of cities in the Midwest. Overall culture varies from city to city, like New York has a culture different from Seattle, and Salt Lake City and Los Angeles are pretty different from each other. A lot of states tend to see themselves as separate cultures, and a lot of times regions within individual states have distinct cultural differences as well, like in Oregon where I live there's a pretty big distinction between Portland and the rest of western Oregon, which is more like California culturally and politically, versus eastern Oregon, which is more conservative and midwestern. It's all a huge mishmash; there's no single "American" culture.

If for whatever reason the American government collapsed and the United States stopped existing as a country, the myriad cultures living within it would still exist. Things would change and I'm sure eventually order would be restored, and there would be new imaginary lines drawn all over the map.

With the internet, cultures around the world are cons

I agree with what you wrote. I confused countries with regions I guess.

I meant that I don't view countries sololy as borders and governments but instead think of the people that live in the countries and what different cultures and languages they have. I made the mistake of not thinking about how different cultures can live in the same nation.

I love America, but who knows whats going on in that government. Either way I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

can we get a thread going for screencaps from animu and games, individual manga panels, etc., that are kind of funny when taken out of context?

We have threads like this for their respective boards, either way you can still post them in the picture thread and (probably) pretend that that was the last image you saved.

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?

I like finally being able to afford my own apartment, no roommates, no family, just me in a comfortable space surrounded by my own stuff and my own life. I like being able to hang around on my day off, work on projects, surf the web, play games, or do whatever the fuck else I feel like doing, just relaxing and enjoying the freedom to be as strange as I want to be in my own space.

Also, cute lolis.

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!
