Watching scary movies while playing games. I have achieved nothing today except for accidentally creating a bad mood. Hiding from reality.

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 dreamed that I had to poop. When I woke up, it turned out that I didn't have to poop. Written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
>> No. 25156 [Edit]
M. Night Shyamalan writing and directing poop? Them some wild dreams you got there anon.
>> No. 25157 [Edit]
I was just being silly. I'm think Shyamalan is known for having a big twist in his movies. So I was just being silly and saying the revelation that I did not have to poop was a big twist.
>> No. 25310 [Edit]
I had a dream the other day where I was riding in a car, but when I got out I realized this dead animal (not a real animal that exists, I'm not sure what it was) laying in the floor in front of the back row seats. I was terrified of it. Later I was in my room with all the lights out, and right before the dream ended I was stumbling over my furniture trying to get to the light and turn it on. I was frightened of the dark room.

How do you like your pizza?
42 posts and 5 images omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 25158 [Edit]
I like my pizza with either pineapple and ham or just pepperoni. I prefer it thinner also.
>> No. 25161 [Edit]
Tombstone pepperoni ultra-thin crust. Ever since pizza was the last thing I ate before having a really violent (hacking up bile for over a week, constant fever, etc, violent) flu, I've associated real pizza, even delivery pizza with that experience. The only pizza I can stand is this kind of artificial pizza that doesn't taste much like pizza should. Yet despite this, its still one of my favourite things to consume.

Anything is fine as long as there are no mushrooms. I'm not picky when it comes to food.
>> No. 25311 [Edit]
I don't particularly like mushrooms either, I've never had pizza with them on it.

Gardening, does anyone else do it? Its one of the few things in my life where I can relax and just lose myself for hours doing. Its so relaxing and rewarding to admire my plants after i've worked hard nurturing them to maturity, even though I know it won't ever be profitable compared to simply buying mass-farmed produce. Right now I'm trying to create a new garden bed to grow more stuff in for spring (its spring here in the southern hemisphere), but all the topsoil is gone due to previous construction work, so I've been taking waste from the fruit market to make compost to enrich the soil, hopefully it will work. Pic related, its a set of sunflower seedlings.

Check the roots of the dead seedlings, if they're black you've got damping off. It's a very common fungal infection of seedlings caused by them being too moist.

Also sounds like you need a snail beer trap.
>> No. 21775 [Edit]
>> No. 21844 [Edit]
I don't think its damping off, as the pot regularly dries out (which isn't really that good either).
>> No. 25307 [Edit]
I've been planning on planting a few chilies starting next month. I have a lot of rawit left over, I read they are a perfect indoor chili pepper to grow. I've never done gardening before so I hope it'll go well.

How did you come across tohno-chan?

Are there any of you which didn't actually find this site from a *chan site?

I got invited but by someone who told me it was a lot different than what it is actually like, so I was pretty confused for awhile.

Somewhere off /jp/ if I had to guess, but It might have been a different chan. I don't exactly remember

Some guy had posted of those "what are you still doing in /jp/? We're all waiting for you at _!" linking to Tohno-chan some years ago.

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?

Rainy days or cold days make me happy, they make me feel so comfortable and nice, especially if I wrap myself up in a blanket or a comfy sweater. I am always a lot more angry and stressed out in the warmer months.
>> No. 25296 [Edit]
You have good taste.
>> No. 25306 [Edit]

The warmer months bother me some too, I think it's because the winter months are not very harsh where I live though. Even in the winter I don't go out in many layers.

Winter is nice, Fall is too.

There is a tree nearby that looks particularly pretty in fall.

Have you purchased any teas or tea related goods lately? Or tried any new teas you liked or disliked?

I don't know shit about tea and this actually made me wonder.. Is there anything special about Japanese milk tea or do people (outside of Japan) really only buy it for the novelty?
>> No. 25292 [Edit]
"Royal Milk Tea" in particular isn't really a thing outside Japan as far as I'm aware, so powdered forms of it consequently probably also wouldn't exist outside the market of aforementioned Japan, powdered foodstuff wizardry capital of the world.

But it actually is just plain old India-grown black tea prepared with copious amounts of milk, so specifically going out to get stuff labeled as Royal Milk Tea probably is just for the novelty of it. Barring it being a matter of convenience with ready access to and an established tolerance/liking for the powdered stuff of course.
>> No. 25293 [Edit]
The powdered stuff is nice, you just add hot water and it's already pre-flavored with sugar and milk. I dunno, it's just interesting to try I suppose. I like normal tea as well but I'm up for trying all sorts of kinds of tea as I just like tea in general.

It should be at any Asian grocer, or online from Amazon or something. I think you can prepare it from loose leaf but it's a lot nicer in baking if you buy the powdered stuff. I sift it with all my normal dry ingredients because it gets lumpy, too.

Wow, I've always had this and was always received with confusion when I explained it to people and asked them if they also had it. Good to know it's a natural thing.

It's very relieving to know this. Here I was thinking my nose was just always stuffy.

I heard it's so you can smell better, for some scents the air has to go through the passsage slowly and for others it has to go more quickly.

I had plucked half of it and had to shave. But yeah, used to be just like >>24021 described.

I find shaving awkward too, I only shave properly if required for a family obligation. Otherwise I just let my beard grow, and cut it with hair-clippers every few months when it looks too wild.
