Once a week, fill out the OP questions and let us know what you're up to!
Think of it as a FRIDAY NIGHT thread like on other sites, only you can post any day of the week at any hour of your choosing since NEETs don't have a schedule or any reason to look forward to the weekend.
Or, just a wordier and more demanding alternative to the daily report thread as a more relevant example.

What games are you playing today?

What anime, movies, YouTube channels etcetera are you watching today?

Have you been listening to any podcasts or music today?

Are you reading any manga or literature?

What're you going to have to eat and drink today?

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!

Maybe people should stop being so fucking sensitive. Words really can't hurt you, and I'd much rather hear someone tell me honestly that they hate my guts and find me an annoyance than for them to lie or avoid the subject, trying to get rid of me some other way that only wastes both of our time. What's true is true, there's no point to getting upset about just knowing the truth. If someone hates me, or find something I do annoying, they aren't helping either of us by not saying it. And this goes even more if it was someone I was close to, if I had them. I'd much rather them tell me honestly if something was bothering them, then even if we don't work it out, we would at least be aware of how each other felt about it. And if the truth threatens to disrupt or destroy a system, that system isn't entitled to it's continued stability. I don't know, maybe I'm not making sense, but I can't see any downside to just saying what you really think unless you can't handle knowing that other people don't agree with you or think things you don't like. I'd honestly rather be shot in the face by someone who hated me than for someone who found me annoying to try to fuck me over in an underhand way.

As a pretty sensitive person, I agree. It's better to be direct than beat around the bush. Sometimes more offensive than to not be direct.

Also it's possible to tell the truth and not be a dick about it, people seem to forget that.

Is it weird to not be obsessed with something? Online and off I keep encountering people who seem to have one track minds. All they know and all they ever talk about is is one or two things, in some cases people revolve their entire lives around these things. Everything from music, to gun nuts, to gear heads, to specific videogame franchises, or electronics brands. Is it normal for real people to be this two dimensional? Am I weird for not focusing one one or two things and learning everything there is to know about those things? Rather than exploring bits of everything out there?
>> No. 30158 [Edit]
Although most Ford Drivers are fairly two-dimensional people, I'd be wary not to take a passionate post or two about a series or franchise as a sure-fire sign of a 'one track mind'; everyone has their favorites, after all. Granted it's certainly annoying when someone gets going about music, smartphones, live-action TV, or some other pop culture nonsense.
>> No. 30159 [Edit]
I don't mean internet posts, it's impossible to tell anything from that alone. I mean people I've interacted with for a time.
>> No. 30160 [Edit]
I gotcha. In that case it's pretty unavoidable with some people. The only thing I can say is that the 'obsession' phase seems most common with the 15-25 age group (especially with females). I don't claim to know how old you are nor the age of the people you're interacting with, but some of them will hopefully become more well rounded with time... if they don't just turn flat-out degenerate, that is.

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.

I was walking with my mom and my little sister. We came by an open door, and inside the room were animals in cages. Mostly cats, but they were twice as large as in real life. We walked in, and then there was a growling sound. A dog stood behind the door, and it was snarling at us. My mom stood frozen, and when the dog gave her chase she ran inside the room, falling down butt first into an open cage. The dog jumped on her and fell upon her face. I just stood there watching.

Over the past several weeks, I've been dreaming about African countries. I don't know why.

I've managed to get myself to dream about myself doing lewd things to the Gerudo girl in BoTW.
>> No. 30155 [Edit]
For some reason every dream I have now has some segment involving large passenger planes crashing, and they land closer and closer to me every time I dream. This time I was grazed by a turbine that shot out of an explosion from a nearby crash. When I was watching the GuP movie today I was startled by the cargo plane flying overhead. It might have something to do with living near a large airport, because I used to love planes.

Hi. I am a cultural social anthropology student from Latvia and I am doing research on a 2D relationship. I would be happy if you would share whit me your story. How and why did you choose your waifu? How is your everyday life? Do your friends and family know about your relationship?
If you can think of any other useful information for me about your lifestyle, I'll be thankful for it.

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.

I obtained a Master's degree in 2010 and then had to come back home thousands of miles away to take care of my mother, who died in 2012. I've been stuck here ever since.

I don't regret the experience but I wouldn't ever do it again if I had to relive my life.

I have written philosophy and posted it here before, but my degree is in Experimental Psychology.

I won't lie, higher education can do wonders for your intellect so long as you escape the whole liberal hivemind that tends to predominate in academia (although it wasn't so terrible when I went and I was in the American South at the time, so that makes sense that it would be more tolerable). Still, no job and no sense of real purpose. Then again, what is a real purpose? And we all know that even a high-paying job usually brings misery.

Maybe I dodged a bullet. I like to think that I'm better off, although I may not be.

Nothing is stopping me from doing anything. I could run out into traffic or set all my belongings on fire or cut myself up until I'm nothing but mashed-up skin and blood and bones. I keep thinking about it and it scares me so much.

Whats the oldest thing you remember from 4chan? (assuming most of us originally browsed that site) hopefully we can talk about 4chan without the thread going bad

For me I think it was either over 9000 spam or a hoax to put nuclear dirty bombs in football stadiums by some guy named Jake Brahm which led to the saying 'you don't mess with football'.

Man those were simpler times. Things were fresh, new and funny. Funnily enough, there were few 2D purists back then and most otaku were interested in 3D.

I think we should keep 4chads users off of TC entirely. Its been over a decade since anyone but normalfags/failed normalfags have been on that site & yet it makes up the plurality of content here. Associating TC with 4chumps in any way only serves to attract posters who currently use that site. If you're going to discuss chad topics such as your love of 4chads epic memes or other topics related to 4chads then you are necessarily going to be attracting frog posters to TC. please don't. Just use 4chads to post 4chads topics or reddit or facebook or wherever you people go. I'm sure there is a instagraham hashtag for all of the "respect me because i'm such an oldfag of the internet" crowd or just go to the mall or something.
I have no idea why you people are so focused on posting your superb 4chumps anecdotes on an otaku website

I didn't go on 4chan until pretty late in the sites existence, but I think it was kind of a strange case where 4chan didn't really impact my life because I never had "a life" at any point in my childhood or late teens. I've been sitting inside alone since day one, I can't ever leave imageboards because I don't know anything else.

Why do people like Steve Jobs so much? People act like he's some revolutionary hero who changed the world and idolize him as such. Far as I know he was just the face of a company that produced overpriced fashionable electronics designed for morons.

They simply die with your brain, presumably.

I would like to believe in the concept of a soul or something similar, but I honestly doubt anything like it exists.

Kenshiro and Guts.

I can't be entirely sure if there are more since my mind is as scattered as a box full of puchidol. I do know that I was definitely inspired by a couple more, but I feel that these two have definitely had a sizable impact on me.

My adopted grandfather, the only man left in my family with a clue regarding finances and frugality. His only major fault is having been so laid back, so hands off. So now nobody has a clue what they're doing.

While stereotypical, I really admire Nikola Tesla. The schizoid in me connects with his desire to just invent shit in his lab away from other people.

From history I admire a lot of people. Benjamin Franklin, Andrew Jackson, Caesar Augustus, Agrippa. There's more but they escape me at the moment.
