I finished Hitching Rides with Buddha, also known as Hokkaido Highway Blues. It's a travelogue of a hitchhiker's journey across entire Japan. Great read. Pretty funny, I really like the author's sarcastic deadpan comments. Somewhat insightful at times and I think it's pretty well written. Recommended.

I dug up an old amplifier from the 80s, Yamaha AX-500. It used to be my dad's I think, it was on our attic. I tested it and it still works and sounds much better than the other amplifiers I have right now!
The only problem is that I have no idea where to put it, it doesn't fit on my desk because it's so huge and weighs 8 kilos.

I am Haruhi Damn Sick of every company I do business with thinking they have the Haruhi given right to my phone number, date of birth, address, and employment information. What the actual airwolf. I don't want to marry you, I just want my airwolfing laptop that I'm paying for with my money.

The culture of privacy invasion people are creating by mindlessly spreading the inanities of their lives all over the everything is destroying my rights and I'm sick of it.

I sincerely doubt anyone on this website uses facebook
>> No. 23966 [Edit]
I don't get spam often and if I do it's just from websites I'm actually or the odd actual spam message from anywhere which goes to the junk folder. I also don't use gmail anymore which is probably even better for me.

I think google respects your privacy as much as facebook, in other words none of the big companies like that do. I mean you really can't get away from it all since data harvesting is everywhere, someone somewhere is going to have easy access to information on you no matter what.
>> No. 24036 [Edit]
>spam is spam, don't matter who it comes from.

when I say 'reputable companies' I mean companies that are sending me email for a reason, like I bought something from them and they decided to send me their newsletter but it actually has an opt-out link.

as opposed to the other kind of spam which is about nigerian prince, viagra, oakley sunglasses, you won the lottery etc.

>someone somewhere is going to have easy access to information on you no matter what.

nobody cares about your information specifically. its not like there is a guy at Facebook HQ who walks into his office each morning, goes to the filing cabinet, pulls out Anon's file and has a chuckle about which websites he visited today. they only want to target advertising to you, which isn't the worst thing in the world. the fact that the NSA are doing this worries me a lot more.
>> No. 25049 [Edit]
I only need one.
Not OP but anybody as paranoid as OP wont use facebook, and probably doesn't use google either.

Wow, it's almost like we're jobless NEETs with no monthly income!

But really, I don't see the point of patreon. I'd rather just donate through paypal.
>> No. 25045 [Edit]
I'd rather donate as well, even if I haven't as of yet and am unsure if I should.

What is the total amount at anyway? I would've done so on the first day, but Paypal is being dildos and I can't get back to that old account without using outdated information that no longer works. I don't even remember making a Paypal account with that specific email, either, although it's likely that I did in the past.

I don't feel okay with just putting in the information like that and let Paypal be dicks with my information because I don't want to use their shitty accounts.

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.

There's a natural cycle of blocking and freeing air passage on individual nasal passages.
I always thought I breathed mostly with one nostrill at a time because of sinusitis/rinitis and possibly deviated septum and all normal people always used both at the same time.

>> No. 25022 [Edit]
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.
>> No. 25023 [Edit]
It's very relieving to know this. Here I was thinking my nose was just always stuffy.
>> No. 25024 [Edit]
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.

Do you like America?

Culture is defined more by the people living within a set of borders than by the borders themselves. Like >>24890 said, the US has at least 10, I would say a lot more, distinct cultures living within its borders. For instance, the culture of white, middle-class people living in a suburban area of a city is vastly different from the culture of black people living in a poorer urban area. Hispanics have their own culture, we also have immigrants from all sorts of places living here who have their own little subcultures as well. There are also cultures within cultures, for instance I am basically part of the white middle class culture, but I don't have a whole lot in common with most other people within that culture. Most people living in my neighborhood don't have apartments packed wall to wall with anime stuff, and I don't watch football or American Idol. There's crazy redneck southern culture, but in a lot of the major cities down there the culture is not that different from the city culture of cities in the Midwest. Overall culture varies from city to city, like New York has a culture different from Seattle, and Salt Lake City and Los Angeles are pretty different from each other. A lot of states tend to see themselves as separate cultures, and a lot of times regions within individual states have distinct cultural differences as well, like in Oregon where I live there's a pretty big distinction between Portland and the rest of western Oregon, which is more like California culturally and politically, versus eastern Oregon, which is more conservative and midwestern. It's all a huge mishmash; there's no single "American" culture.

If for whatever reason the American government collapsed and the United States stopped existing as a country, the myriad cultures living within it would still exist. Things would change and I'm sure eventually order would be restored, and there would be new imaginary lines drawn all over the map.

With the internet, cultures around the world are cons

I agree with what you wrote. I confused countries with regions I guess.

I meant that I don't view countries sololy as borders and governments but instead think of the people that live in the countries and what different cultures and languages they have. I made the mistake of not thinking about how different cultures can live in the same nation.

I love America, but who knows whats going on in that government. Either way I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
>> No. 24991 [Edit]
I'd like for it to collapse and be reborn. like hoe yugoslavia collapsed in WWII and came back communist. Plus, nationalism gets a free ride in the meantime. Only with gencoide of whites and blacks against each other, etc until the revolutionary fascist or communist government forces a united north american continent

Anyone else here who doesn't know how to shave well? I always end up making small cuts and leaving some stubble.

I had plucked half of it and had to shave. But yeah, used to be just like >>24021 described.
>> No. 24979 [Edit]
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.
