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!

He is a figurative artist, so I assume it is intentional. If you look at the warped dimensions of the fork and the simplistic depictions of the area outside the room, yet notice the subtle shading placed in the reflection of the mirror, I would say he was going for a particular affect.

ITT post something new you learned today. Trivia knowledge is more than welcome.

WD My Book external hard drives use hardware encryption even if you don't encrypt your data. So if you take the hard drive out of the enclosure, your data is fucked.

Seagate external hard drives require a special pentalobe screwdriver to open the enclosure, which was designed by the dark lord Satan himself.

I do now. I found out while consolidating all my externals into one large enclosure. (In my previous case the GPU completely covered the SATA connectors so installing internals was a pain in the ass)

I must admit, I like them more because I can relate to them more than the average girl. Even in anime, the cliches of female characters tend to confound my view of a character more than support their characterization, but tomboys suffer from this phenomenon to a lesser extent.

I used to think I liked tomboys, but then I realized it was mostly about the shorter haircuts.

I do like tomboys whose "tough girl" attitude is an act (so not really tomboys I guess). When they're embarrassed by their girlishness, even though deep down that's all they want. A tomboy trying her hardest not to seem too girly and cute (and failing adorably). That's the best.

I look a little bit like Kasai. Except for the fact that my head is shaved due to encroaching baldness. And if you add about 15 lbs of unnecessary fat. And if you make him a much sloppier dresser and considerably less of a badass. We have similar beards, I guess is my point.

A fucking cold day, arrived home and found out we hadn't received water yet and everything left on the water tank had gone away. Had to use water from the fridge to wash my hands.
Then I tried to heat myself some dinner and a circuit breaker went off and shut down the microwave. I ate it cold anyway and then resetted the circuit breaker so I could come to the internet and rant about how shitty this is.
Well yeah, sorry for that.

Thank you and anybody else that helped me get a good pair of headphones. I'm surprised that somebody cared enough to put a any bit of effort into helping out someone like me.

Not really, I'll sometimes feel bad about something stupid I've said in the past, but I've learned how to get over it.

One time I asked who Jesus Christ was in High School, because I was simply out of it that day.

The minute I realized what I had said, and saw the resulting hateful remark from the teacher, I pulled my heads up through my shirt like a turtle to its shell, and somehow fell over and hit my hand against the desk adjacent to me.

Its pretty bad when you can feel the proxy embarrassment ooze off of everyone else.

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!

The story was complete shit though, 5 centimeters per second was much more enjoyable because you could actually relate to the characters.
>> No. 24675 [Edit]
>>24674
But I actually enjoyed the very simple story that they had with Garden of Words, and I also easily related to the characters and their problems. I have not seen Five Centimeters per Second, so I wouldn't be able to compare. I'm guessing this is just a matter of taste.

I agree that 5cm is still his best work but I also enjoyed Kotonoha and, argumentatively, I do not consider it a waste at all.

Those days I read some interview where Makoto mentioned that it was his first story about love as koi (as opposed to ai). He didn't add much more but, as I see it, if 5cm was about how those who gained consummate/mutual love (ai) and were meant to be as one can't possibly do so due to distance (understood not just as social alienation but as the world's irreducible spatial and temporal dimensions), Kotonoha deals with the motionless and timeless quality of love as pure longing (koi) which, versus the fast and unstoppable rhythm of the industrial world, can only be experienced by the nurturing of rituals: the almost religious repetition of their pointless meetings, in the same place and only in rainy days, built an autonomous time that allowed them to escape and eventually overcome their respective states of stagnation. Additionally, nature is vitalized once again but now in a generous way: if in 5cm the snow and the seasons were implacable enemies of love (as the spring that came too late), in Kotonoha the rain and the summer serve as love's enablers and accomplices. Also, the teacher was damned hot.
