Thanks for the advice, I really appreciate it. I've actually been browsing /fit/ for a while now, and it's been pretty helpful. As for deadlifting I made sure to keep my back straight. Now that it's been a few days I'm sure that my lower back pain was only DOMS. Scared me a bit because I never had DOMS there before. It made me realize how weak my back was; probably from sitting most of the time. I'm still scared as fuck I might snap my back but I'm going to progress with baby weights until I get my form down perfect. Also, I agree with you on exercise being enjoyable. I don't know what it is, but I can't go a day without doing some sort of exercise. Otherwise I just feel tired and sluggish the entire day.

Thanks man, that's pretty encouraging. I'm always think that people are judging me, but if the situations were reversed I wouldn't care, or rather I'd respect the person for trying. Also I've been eating well and trying to set up a better sleep schedule since I started, funny how it's been sort of like a chain reaction. It just feels really really good to work towards something for once.

What's the longest you've ever gone without showering/bathing? I'm actually trying to remember the last time I showered and I'm having trouble, which is probably a bad sign. However I feel like it's been about a week.

A week I guess. I haven't showered for five days currently.

But you just know if you have to shower. If you bend over and can smell you crotch, or when sitting at your computer you can smell it.

If you don't have to go outside it's fine, but if you do, you pretty much have to shower. I don't want to be that person that everyone passes that thinks 'damn, that guy smells'.

I'm thankful to moot for creating a board that has provided me with so many hours of entertainment ever since I found the site in 2006 or so. As for what he did: He held the site together, for starters. Just look at 7chan and its troubled history for contrast. moot was certainly one of the most capable imageboard admins, as can be seen from the size of the userbase and his track-record of uptime.
Him leaving doesn't affect me directly, because even though last time I checked /a/ was still the best place to discuss anime with a large community on the Anglophone internet, I haven't been on /a/ or /jp/ in years because even though I still read manga and watch anime, I simply don't feel the urge to talk about this stuff anymore. And I took most of my other posting to 4chon (and now 8chan) when moot destroyed /new/.
Only thing about his adminship that really bothered me was the political stuff that cropped up over the last few years, where tumblr-style leftists were free to shill for their garbage on even on boards like /vr/ etc. while anyone refuting their shitty self-contradictory worldview was banned and had his posts deleted by the mods.
That, and how he let /b/ completely go to ruins over the years.

4chan has had an enormously beneficial impact on western online culture because of its promotion of anonymity. I do hope the internet of the future won't be entirely in the hands of Facebook-style social media where people post everything under their real name.
>> No. 26857 [Edit]
Hey... I like 7chan. Its been my premium content network since /b/day. It has its own culture, rules and the quality of posts is generally quite a bit better. Slower... But better IMHO.
>> No. 26871 [Edit]
But look at how often the site simply ceased to exist before having to get resurrected. After some trouble in the very beginning, 4chan has been pretty stable for a full decade.
>> No. 26872 [Edit]
It doesn't matter, anonymous message boards existed before 4chan, they will exist after. 4chan is just the brandname version of a generic product. Its not better at all, and it costs a little more.

Hello, this is my first post on this site. I just wanted to say it is very nice to see a site like this, an English imageboard returning to its cultural roots.

I just have a question. What do you think of the recent fad on the internet of the wordfilter "weeaboo" being used everywhere instead of otaku, hikkikomori, animefag, etc? I had spent months on tumblr and I noticed that now even young teenage girls call themselves "weebs" for watching one scant episode of Attack on Titan, because apparently the word otaku is negative in Japan and using it positive here makes you look cringey, lame and racist or something (mostly the former on 4chan). Is the word otaku dead? Did you notice everyone seems afraid to act like nerds on the internet compared to mid-2000's culture?

(I apologize if I posted this on the wrong board.)

You are pretty much right on all accounts. Younger people like him just don't quite know how things once were before social media or even the internet itself took off, because they were either too young to seriously remember, or they weren't even alive. Both of us remember how it once was, even though we were young ourselves back then.

Perhaps human nature in and of itself hasn't changed. The basic feeling of self-entitlement, the overwhelming force of emotions that would require a decent amount of intellect to curb, and so on. I don't deny that. However, how humans, particularly the younger generation, have manifested is markedly different to notice an immense generation gap.

Younger women treat men like shit now. They see them as potential rapists, they think that they owe them the world while believing that they don't have to give anything back to them, they don't take care of themselves, they are far more asocial and stand-offish; the list goes on. Ten years ago, college-age women were far more friendly to you, at least to your face. And this was during a time when rape was probably more frequent and taken with less seriousness. Now, they don't even pretend to be a certain way unless if they are behind a counter or have a pretext; a year and a half ago I was minding my own business in the commons of the local University, and some young harlot passed me by with an arrogant look and openly said "douche". That shit never happened before; women have become far more self-entitled, hostile and arrogant these days.

I'm not even a misogynist or a red pill. Sort of used to be, but I know that there are still exceptions to the rule and I'm not interested in any real relationship, in any case.

But, seriously. Younger people are just so different, and they can't quite grasp how things once were. I'm not even a nostalgia-fag, because I hated the 90s and the 00s. Those years had their own problems. I just despise how things are now even more, at least to some extent.

I worry about what Internet 3.0 is going to be like. And I worry about our future. Whether we become insanely &qu

Sometimes, if I'm doing it properly. However, I think the idea is more that the guy is giggling under the pressure of being in a surreal situation such as having an attractive girl give him a handjob while he attempts to sing karaoke, not to mention the fact that the whole thing is on TV.

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.

Under some odd circumstances (that I can't recall now) I ended up sleeping in a room of cute girls. Later in the night there was someone who was.. I'm not sure what, but looking into each room with a flashlight through the windows. The rooms were lined side by side in two long rows. So I had to warn them.. or something. I think I was wearing some strange baggy pants. Then I woke up. AH.

Oh, yeah. There was a second dream where I was in a room with someone else. There was a small table near the door that was raised higher up than normal. On that table was some cereal boxes. I remember the cereal in them was the plain kind, like wheat whatever cereal, a bunch of different varieties of it. Then after a while there were more and more cereal boxes everywhere. And more and more came... etc.

Last night I had an odd one.
I was just casually walking through the woods, not really knowing my purpose, when I saw a wolf.
We stared each other down for some time, and I started slowly moving towards it, eventually lunging at it and grabbing it by the throat and slamming it against a tree until it was dead.
I left its corpse and continued walking, and after some time I came upon some wolf pups that were cowered against a tree. I thought nothing of it in my dream, I just kept moving. It was strange.

On reccuring dream I've had is about a very young girl (7-10) that can stand but can't walk. We were in a town that was perpetually uphill. She was in a wheelchair, and she wasn't strong enough to get herself up any further.
I suggested she wore roller skates and I pull her with a comically oversized chain.
We talked, and I enjoyed her company for some time. The sun began to set, and eventually I felt nothing towards her, and I only saw her as a burden holding me back from reaching the top of the hill.
I let go of the chain and watch her roll back until she got hit by a truck, then turned around and kept walking towards some unclear goal.

File 142954913890.webm - (1.10MB , what it reminded me of.webm )
At one point, I was in somebody else's apartment. They had a cat, and it seemed interested in me. Then it jumped on me and started trying to bite my hand off. Even though it was so small it was hard to hold back. Then, suddenly its jaw unhinged or something and tried to eat me whole.

A second part I was, even though I'm a dude, went to get a pregnancy test for myself. The person I went to took a piece of paper I had and started whisking some liquid on it intensely while another older man held it. It looked like it was a hard task for some reason.
While the older man was holding it he told me to get him a book called "A Road to the Sea" quickly. He explained the cover had a path on it between a split sea during sunset.

A third part took place in a scenario where I'd moved out of my parent's house into an apartment with a room mate. The room itself was very small, about the size of the room I'm in right now. What I remember from this is that whenever my room mate brought people over I absolutely hated it.

During the last part of my dream that I remember, I was talking online through chat with someone I am acquainted with. While we were chatting he asked me to check over his anki deck to make sure it was error free, or something, that makes no sense but I didn't think of that in my dream. He sent it to me and I proceeded to print out the entire deck onto paper. At this point, I had a whole shitton of papers on my desk that I tried putting in piles, but there were so many that the last (5th, for some reason I remember this) pile fell all over the floor. I didn't bother cleaning it up. I didn't check the deck either I don't think.

I literally just woke up from a deep sleep remembering this thread because I think I've found a way to do this. A few months ago I graduated from a taxidermy class and I too thought how I could preserve an aborted fetus. I'm sure I could get the right tanning agents, bacteriacide, and some type of skin toughener which I haven't figured out yet.

So yeah, it would be neat to have a little well preserved fetus I could carry around for good luck or a conversational piece. Probably hybrid resin heat shrink wrap the whole thing after I finish the work on it.

Ugg what was I thinking? I'm not going to skin it to preserve. My mind just messed up the whole processes over what I learned to do and what would actually work.
>> No. 26795 [Edit]

Lol not quite what I had in mind, but that is so delightfully gruesome! Alright, I'm amending my proposal: by 2025, I want functioning pocket lolis. By 2016, I want a preserved fetus charm.

Ever since the age of 5 I've been picking and biting my nails and skin. I've always kept my nails really short to the point where they can't be used for anything and I peel the skin on my fingertips so much that sometimes I expose the sensitive layer that hurts. This is a habit I probably picked up from my dad from me watching him do it at such a young age.
Since last year, I've been keeping my clippings in an empty pill container. I'm starting to get attached to my collection. When I don't have my container with me, I will hold on to my peeled nail and/or skin until I can deposit them in the right place. What used to be just an act of nervousness or being bored has now become a hobby of mine.

Does anyone else do the same thing? Or do you have another bad habit like this?

I bite the skin off my lips.
I push my thumb with my finger against the nail and other side until it bleeds. I also do the same to my other fingers. I don't do this as much as I used to. I remember one point in high school all my nails had blood spots on them.
I rub the area where my neck connects to my chest to the point people ask why it's so red.
I pick my nose a lot.

I used to bite my nails but stopped when I got braces. I also used to pull out my leg hair. I never thought anything of it until I looked at my legs and I had huge bald patches on my legs. They still haven't grown back completely even though I stopped about five years ago.
>> No. 26776 [Edit]
I don't save my fingernail clippings, however I do gnaw on my fingernails almost constantly. Pretty much any time they are long enough to bite a nice wide swath off of I will chew it off, and then I like to move the clipping around in my mouth for a while, pushing it into the spaces between various teeth, and then gnawing it down a little until eventually I've chewed it to bits and swallowed it. Sometimes little fragments detach themselves and get stuck in the spaces between my teeth and it's really annoying, but not enough to stop me from doing it. It's kind of an oral fixation, like what some people do with toothpicks. My toenails, however, I rarely think to clip, to the point where people actually remark on how long and nasty my toenails usually look (I tend to prefer wearing sandals whenever I go outside if the weather allows it; shoes are entirely too much of a hassle).

I'm afraid that you two aren't the only ones that do this.

I mostly do it since my lips get dry pretty often and it just becomes something that I sometimes do without even noticing.

I recently refound this site, and also rewrote all of this because I accidentally made it into a huge blogpost and dont want it to get deleted.

I don't really identify myself as a hardcore weeb anymore, but I'm still stuck in a weeb-ish shutin rut, so I hope this won't be deleted for being too normie.

Does anyone play Runescape, maybe since it became free to play?

It's the perfect way to spend 18 hours of my day, grinding away.

It would be nice to have some losers like me to maybe play with or something

probably pointless asking but whatever

I used to play this minigame a lot back in 2013. Then I just got bored with the game. I logged back into once this year and all the worlds were dead and I didn't understand the interface. I can't tolerate the grinding any more so I didn't get back into the game. They put too much P2W stuff and messed with its recipe. The gameplay was never its strong point. It played like shit even from the start. But what it did exceedingly well was hooking you in with it ssimple gameplay and getting you addicted to the treadmill of grinding and levelling up, and they screwed with that.

You should play Nostalrius, OP. It's vanilla WoW, and it's a lot better than runescape.

It's free too.
