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.

Satanic music is apparently a thing. It's like something you'd hear at a spa. Fucking bubbles. Bach's music sounds more satanic.

They weren't really to symbolise things but their traits would be compared to biblical references, so each entry ends with kind of a biblical rant. The Pelican wasn't really Jesus but if a young pelican stuck the face of it's parent the parent was said to then kill it and after three days the mother would tear open her chest and pours blood over it which would resurrect it, the writer then compares this to what Jesus did when he resurrected in three days.

Today marks 4 weeks since I first found out about my armpit fetish. I've always considered the breast-armpit-arm area quite beautiful and attractive, but never looked at it in a sexual manner. At least, not solely focusing on that part.

Now I'm addicted to it. It began being the first thing I noticed about female bodies, and it further augmented the divide between being sexually attracted to 3DRL females, and 3DCG/2D ones. I could still fap to live porn before. Now, not anymore, as I less and less value other body parts and characteristics, and otherwise consider 2D more pretty.

It's also troubling me a bit in my relationship with my waifu. Precisely one month left to celebrate 2 years since we first met. We haven't consummated our marriage as of yet. Wasn't/Am not planning to do so for at least another year or two. I have however been paying particular attention to her armpits and imagining "fondling" with them. I do it more in a casual manner, tickling, for example, and I'm trying to restrain myself, almost scared of, not to be a creep or do something inappropriate.

Today I decided that I'll take this opportunity to learn how to better restrain sexual fantasies and perversions.

I have the same sort of thoughts. Can't allow myself to fully relax and enjoy myself. Ever. I could be NEET with a year's rent saved and I would still have the thoughts.
A psychologist once blamed this kind of thing on a pervasive Protestant work ethic. Your parents needn't be religious to inculcate it in childhood. She wasn't a great diagnostician in my opinion, because in childhood I didn't have such thoughts. It's living in the capitalist machine with crumbling social safety nets that did it. Never goes away. Imagine if a worldwide revolution ushered in a socialist utopia like in some anarchist's wet dream. They would still have to treat generations of people for something like PTSD. Variable in its severity, granted. Just from the memory of this shit.

I agree with you, I'm just remembering how it was in wizardchan, were normalfaggotry was determined by how much you were able to still enjoy things. So having hobbies and interests, specially the autistic/nerd ones, was quickly condemned.
It totally looked like a bunch of angsty teens competing for who was more depressed than the other and how much they hated things.
At the end, if normalfag meant being happy and not a normalfag meant being unhappy you could easily reach the conclusion that being a normal was just plain better. And that's awfully wrong.
If something, it's more normal not being able to enjoy things than social recognition, having crisis "when no gf" and all that kind of shit, while the unnormal is more like Dwarf Fortress guy, who can obsess and enjoy doing one autistic thing all his life just because it's fun.
>> No. 33679 [Edit]
Any place where people can't be shamelessly passionate about something is not worth being in. A big part of normalfaggotry is reeling in your interests, either in content or intensity, so as to not diverge from what's considered acceptable. Even among people who do seem "abnormal" on the surface, like those on wizardchan or some incel forum or who go to anime conventions, have the same mindset. Instead of revelling in how society sees you because of whatever you lack that's considered valuable, it's better to simply reject society's value scale.

>Normalfaggotry is more defined by a conformity-first mindset and certain attitudes.
I think this is a good characterization. They have an unconscious tendency towards conformity (either not realizing this action, or justifying it based on some superficial reason). This is usually accompanied by a desire to jostle for social prominence, which probably is in and of itself the primary distinguisher. Most actions are carried out towards that end: "watching anime" is not merely a comforting medium to be enjoyed in solitude but rather perverted into a competition to see who can be the most outspoken "weeb," overtly marking oneself as part of some supposed trendy in-group. Going to anime conventions becomes merely an avenue for partying with friends.
>> No. 33686 [Edit]
That's what exactly is. And that's what always bothered me of people. At the end it's all about socializing, even with weirdos, it all ends in the same. And I think females are probably 100% about that while some males can show some genuine appreciation, but social pressure makes them cynical.

They might be switching to avoid getting hit by cars in cases where there isn't a clear bike lane (or the bike lane is poorly placed). Although I'm not sure how the infrastructure is in Denmark.
>> No. 33619 [Edit]
They should bike on the fucking grass if there is no lane, and get off of their bike when going through a crosswalk. I don't live in a city, so my perspective is of a suburbanite.
They have a great reputation for it.

From games, comics, and cartoons, since the late 90s, westerns from America to Europe(especially France for some reason) have attempted to create "anime-like" media. You remember some of these: rwby, totally spies, avatar, teen titans, code lyoko, to name a few. Most of these are made to capitalize on a dying trend, but that's besides the point. These try to copy something more than the artstyle(which is usually a failure). There's some kind of character to otaku media that they're trying to replicate.

Aside from anime largly representing adult-oreiented animation that isn't primarily comedic, there's something else to it, some dynamic. Most people write these "knockoffs" off as shit and that's it, but I want to know, if I were to try to make something with that unique "spirit" to it, wouldn't it just come out the same? Could a westerner capture whatever that thing is so it feels the same?

There's a couple western porn artists which do a really good job, but that's as close as I can think of

Sorry for the misinterpretation of your statement. I don't have too much experience with other medias, but yes, compared to American cartoons, even aimed at adults, anime is a much more serious medium.

And yeah, Goepples-chan wasn't the best example to put in things relating to otaku culture, however, the comedic scenes are actually reminiscent of those in visual novels and the team that worked on it is actually Japanese. I appreciated the humor and the perspective of it, despite the fact that it went with the common [insert]-tan theme and was pandered to westerners.

Also goes to show that there are so few good EOL VN's, I had to bring that one up.

>there are so few good EOL VN's
"Games" like Heavy Rain, Telltale stuff and even that Life is Strange shit basically are EOL VNs, they just aren't packaged as such. The gimmick of these is basically "hey, it's an electronic, slightly interactive medium of story telling. That's never been done before! Games are art now, see?". Except visual novels were doing it 20+ years before.

I feel like those take after movies, not novels. You don't read much in them, or at all. While it is similar in the sense that the focus is entirely on storytelling, the method is too different for me to see them as comparable.
>> No. 33664 [Edit]
There's a few "fully-animated" VNs.

I feel like what they were wrongly taking credit for something broader than movie based games. They didn't so much as acknowledge the existence of visual novels, which I guess is a good thing.

>I'll never understand this anxiety, I just ignore people when I don't want to talk with them.
It has more to do with their mere presence than [potential] conversation.

A fear of other human beings is probably nigh-impossible to imagine if you don't have it, but that also applies to virtually every phobia, along with certain elements of other neurological disorders (for example, the fact that many people on the autism spectrum are completely unable to perceive sarcasm, irony, and metaphors).

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?

American Italians or Italy Italians, because what they eat and the way they eat it is not the same.
>> No. 33093 [Edit]
Sure. About two thirds of us are overweight, across all of Europe. What I meant was not that Italians are unusually fat, just that they're also as fat as us.

The differences between 'national diets' aren't that big anymore. We all stuff our gobs with the same shit. Same 'imported' internationally popular dishes, fast food, sweets, snacks, soda, beer. Local cuisine got overtaken by the global favourites.
But I think even before globalization food in most regions was based mainly on cereal and starchy vegetables. That's what agriculture was always focused on, probably everywhere. But today barely anyone gets enough daily activity to eat all of that high energy food and not get fat.

Could be the only thing Europe is united in is obesity. We grow fat together, that should be our motto.

I don't know how we compare to the USA.

Carry on then. Personally I can't tell the difference.

Italian Italians. I don't know why so many of them come here when our country is worse off than Italy in most aspects.

Speaking of Amazon, their inventory co-mingling practices have gotten absurdly out of hand. At this point buying something from amazon is more akin to purchasing something from a Chinese flea market, as you have no idea whether the reviews can be trusted or whether the item actually sold is as described. Even books aren't safe to buy since apparently people reprint unofficial scanned versions.

Interestingly the Japanese have an opposite viewpoint, finding a beauty in the transience/ephemerality of things:

You mean plastic model kits?
I had the same worries, but they disappeared when I made my first kit. I can't build the most basic Ikea shit, I can't even do the most simple informatic stuff like changing a hard drive, but model kits aren't a problem. You just need some patience, they are made to be extremely easy to build (there's complicated models, but the average HG/MG is almost always easy). If you need any help about how to start just ask.
