Like the title asks, what kind of clothes do you like to wear either indoors or outdoors?

I like wearing my black zip-up hoodie a lot, I've had it for years now and I feel a bit attached to it. It's worn now, it can't even zip anymore but I still wear it often because it has sentimental value to me. Another thing I like to wear is aprons, not really sure why.

What about you TC? What do you like to wear and why?

Please don't hate me.

I just like the way it looks. Although i only wear that stuff when I'm going outside which isn't very often nowadays, mostly i just wear baggy sweats and a tshirt.
>> No. 29353 [Edit]

You actually have to make extra effort to dress like an asperger.
>> No. 29354 [Edit]
Doc Martens, Ripped jeans, Band T-shirt, Leather jacket with patches... A walking stereotype. Basically a "Hey normies, look at me! I'm dressing like you!. Which is fine and all... but doesn't change the fact is an imposed style.
>> No. 29358 [Edit]
I have like 10 "charcoal" t-shirts, very dark gray but not quite black. 3 long sleeved versions, and then a few other t-shirts. The only logo'd ones have software projects or incredibly obscure internet culture stuff on them, nothing that screams weeby or nerd. 2 tank tops for when I go to the gym or feel like being white trash.

As far as my jackets go, I have a few surplus military coats, some plaid button ups, and a few more fashionable ones. But less is more, in my book.

Pants are mostly jeans.

Oh, and I have a monk outfit from my time in the monastery. Comfy, but not really street wear.

When I'm hangin' in my room, I usually wear basketball shorts or pyjama pants, based on the weather, with a t-shirt.

congrats! You are a hipster.

Wish I could offer some advice but I'm not sure how NEET-bux work in Germany. I've considered filing for partial disability myself (I live in the US) due to my fucked up feet, but I would probably have to jump through hoops and hurdles, and still get declined anyway. They would probably say "Oh well you can work a desk or office job" even though there's very very few of those hiring in my area.

I guess maybe it's worth a shot sometime. I'd probably have to get some sort of doctor proof though, and I don't know how expensive that would be, unless they just decline me outright.

Either way, good luck man. If you end up finding work, hope you can mentally and physically handle it.

I'm sort of considering getting a tulpa. I know that it's probably not too good of an idea for someone like me, but there's a chance that it could be perfect for someone like me.
>> No. 29356 [Edit]
As someone who's studied a LOT about Buddhism -- don't believe the lore, it's just creepypasta. The traditional "tulpa" is just a simple image you focus on as your mind enters a light form of trance to deepen it. A tulpa is just an imaginary friend, nothing more, nothing less.

You may as well just learn autohypnosis and interact with your waifu in 3d. or take certain drugs and have the same dream-like experience with less effort

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.

From the time when I actually started lurking it'd probably be stuff like SHOOP DA WHOOP, cockmongler etc.
I stumbled upon it much earlier but I didn't even know any english then so I didn't understand shit and eventually forgot about it.
I think I discovered it again when media started reporting on DOMESTIC TERRORISM and scientology shit. People say it's when it went to shit so I'll always feel like a permanewfag.
Left probably 2013, maybe even 12 for some smaller places that eventually withered and died or changed for worse. Haven't browsed much in last year or two and most of the sites I have bookmarked are gone or dying now.
Every couple of months I get this feeling that I want to go back but I don't really know any places anymore.
Do you browse any other imageboards? Do you still find it fun or is it just a habit?
I thought I was doing myself a favor when I quit, many people were saying the same when they were going but for me nothing really filled that void. It's not like I ever had a "life" to go back to.
>> No. 29351 [Edit]
A lot of the mid 2000's 4chanism already mentioned itt I came across when i'd spend most of my time on the old YouTube community. I was young so I believed most of the rumors that hinted 4chan being the most fucked up place on the internet. Didn't start browsing well into what most of you would consider it's comatose state.
This is the only imageboard I browse. I've become so increasingly alienated with the internet as whole that i'm unsure as to what to do next. I think I might have found another clue as to why NEETs past the age of 25 that post are so rare. Someone on here has shared similar sentiments, hope he's doing alright...

What are your thoughts on the common portrayal in Japanese media of life essentially being limited to one's time in school?

It's just an easy and barely noticeable way cutting corners for practicality sake, anime/manga is full of them. It doesn't really mean they're lazy, it just means they're using their time and resources more efficiently and in creative ways. It's like animating only a characters mount when they talk rather than their whole face, panning over still frames for the illusion of animation, having background characters who are poorly drawn and don't move, putting the most care into a characters head area rather than the rest of their body which is where most people focus on then putting all the detail in the eyes for the same reason, and of course this also includes using school uniforms so you don't have to design and draw dozens of different outfits instead of variations of the same uniform.

Very realistic. After school ended, I was NEET for a year, , then my life just became centered around working. I did not do much in school, had no friends and hated school in general, but I could always count on toughing the day through then going home to browse the internet and watch anime and shit, especially when summer come.

When I was 17/18 I lost the spark of video games and anime. all star battle was released, JOJO was being animated, watamote got an anime, PS4 was out. None of it interested me. My life ended sometime around this time.

I was without internet for a good chunk of that time, so I hypothesize that I became "unaddicted" to anime and video games, and was reduced to a dead soulless husk with nothing to look forward to in this world.

My oh my, the lull of video games and anime was so sweet. Being absorbed in anime and videogames is like being on drugs. And when it's over I snap out of it and I'm crying on the bathroom floor.

when I was in middle school and early highschool, I wanted to do drugs, wanted to fuck women (or at least prostitutes) trannies, twinks, whatever. Wanted to watch all the anime in the world, play every video game, spend all my days browsing the infinite internet, spend hours combing gelbooru and paheal. Wanted to learn japanese, wanted to learn to draw manga and hentai, wanted to master guitar shredding. wanted to start a metal band, never wanted to work. wanted a full gaming PC set up, wanted a dakimakura, posters, onaholes, wanted an outcast loser tomoko gf to love, I wanted everything life had to offer.

It all just fizzled away in a moment somehow, don't know how, but now I'm here and I don't want much of nothin. It's all gone now. Maybe those were juvenile desires, maybe I got raped or something. Who knows? I did have a bad trip on shrooms at the end of this time. Don't recall it having much of an effect on me but the following months I was smacked with a series of existential crisis' and I guess I realized that none of this matters. So sad, I suppose.

Wouldn't a anime about people in their 20s would feature even less variety clothes and less variation in scenes since everyone would be wearing office suits in cubicles all day.
>> No. 29278 [Edit]
Watch new game.
They sort of make fun of the main character for wearing a suit to the job, and she's pretty much the only character who wears the same thing each ep.
Most jobs 'usually' don't have strict dress codes or uniforms unless it's an entry level/minimum wage kind of job. That's why something like Working! works for this but servant x service doesn't.

I found a pornographic dvd in one of my PS2s that I didn't use anymore, I think it might have been left there by someone who broke into our home a couple months before I discovered it.

Is human nature constant or is it molded by culture? Can human nature be completely changed by culture or society?

Assuming you're asking about the "nature vs nurture" argument, the general consensus right now in humans seems to be that roughly 70% of your personality and character is determined by your nature and genetics, and the remaining 30% is determined by your environment and external stimuli.
