I'm a little ashamed to have revealed where I'm from, even if I don't have a name or much to give myself away, aside from my typing style, of course. Thank you for the concern, however! I appreciate it very much, even though you don't know me. I can't help but feel ashamed and embarrassed.

The hurricane didn't go through where I lived so it wasn't much more than just a really rainy day on my end. Although it could've been really bad if it had since the lack of power and internet would've been terrible, even if it likely would've destroyed my home.

Meh. Still haven't had a proper meeting yet. Baby steps though. I got my pay raise early, and likely this will all get finalized and my role will transition in October. My replacement should be coming in to start work any day now. Once they are trained and I get some more training, and we work out my schedule, no more bullshit.

I'm trying to make friends with this person, but he keeps ignoring me. I wasn't pushy at first, I sent one message to him on his blog and waited like 3 days without response when it was obvious he had been online since, and then I sent him another message apologizing for being weird and then I sent him a thing I wrote about this game we both like a lot but still nothing, not even a vague passive aggressive post or anything and its driving me FUCKING INSANE
>> No. 29618 [Edit]
maybe he doesn't want to be friends

Do you ever feel ashamed or guilty when you find or look back on the things you liked in the past?

No. Honestly I wish I could go back to being a kid. Things were a lot simpler back then.

Things I did definitely, things I liked not so much. I don't see why it should matter.

This song makes me feel some comfort but regret as well. I spent a lot of my time playing games since it was the only time I ever felt... not useless. The alternative wasn't great; my parents were mad at me a lot because of my grades (I was lazy), I would get made fun of in school sometimes and I didn't have many friends. Thankfully the few I had were great friends. When my life wasn't school or home it was videogames, perhaps the only time where I didn't feel as if something bad would happen but if it did I could handle it. I probably should have lived life but it might not have worked out so well.

This song brings me comfort and regret.

So the new admin at 4chan is struggling financially with the site (ads are now gone)
And /a/ is having talks of where to migrate to if the site goes down for good , people are name dropping your site a lot
I'm not sure if this is wanted or unwanted but I feel you should at least be aware of it .

So? Good riddance. It's all their fault for not getting rid of normalfags and turning away from the ways of the samur/a/i.

Should 4chan shut down, almost everyone will go to 8chan. It's the second biggest imageboard and already has /a/, /v/, /b/, /pol/, /tv/, /co/ and /r9k/.

>People are simply worried you won't be able to take care of all the normalfags who shitpost about how much they hate anime or whatever faceberg /soc/ garbage they will inevitable drag here.
That's just what almost all self-described anime fans in the West are like, even if they've been watching since the 80s. There is no anime fandom in the West and never was. No place is exempt, not even /an/. It's all shit.

Yeah and you're totally not one of them and thats why its perfectly OK that you come to TC to discuss 4chan metashit. Fucking hell this whole site was built exclusively so that uninteresting 4channers could have 4chan meta discussion about their home site when they were somewhere else on the internet, so thanks for stopping by & don't forget to tell your friends at 4chan all about us, OK?
Thanks & goodbye, have a good time on 4chan! see you next time

That's correct.

I did not start this thread so I don't know why you're suddenly complaining to me about this.

Did you forget to take your medication?

Fact is, sleep takes up a large fraction of anyone's life. Have a comfortable bed & a large fraction of your life is excellent.
Please tell me ways to improve the quality & volume of my sleeping.

Where have you being buying your mattresses? I think you have been severely ripped off. I got a 10-inch-hight memory foam mattress for like €800 a couple of years ago and it's still perfect (and can be flipped over but I didn't have to so far. I've been gaining weight like crazy, to the point I'd consider myself morbidly obese now... and still no issues.
>> No. 29484 [Edit]
I think part of the issue is that i spend an abnormal amount of time in my bed. Whenever I'm watching anime or tv or something I do it while laying down in bed, and a lot of time i browse the internet from my bed as well.
>> No. 29524 [Edit]
I've been sleeping on the floor for about a year now.

At first it was because my family got a bad case of bedbugs and we didn't have the money to buy a new mattress.

I started to like it so I never got a new one. It's actually not that bad. Tried to find some actual research on it but just came up with advertisements and bro-science.

I found a few things claiming mattresses are actually bad for you because they slowly wear your back down. Seems like it might be bullshit but i lines up with my experience so I've rolled with it.

Another great sleep aid is a program called f.lux. Takes a while to get used to but makes you want to go to bed at a reasonable hour.

Buy goose down, some plain white bed or simple sheets, and a cheap sewing machine. If you can figure it out, this is the ultimate in comfy.

I don't think we had a movie thread yet so I wanted to ask, does /tc/ watch movies? What was the last one you saw? Have any good recommendations or favorite genres? Do you like american, european or asian cinema?

I saw a very long Japanese drama film about a month ago, I disliked it so much I don't remember the name. Relatively recently I watched the 1962 Lolita movie, it wasn't really particularly great, I remember the more it went on the less it made sense and the more confused I got. Someday I will watch the 90s remake, but meh. I also saw A Clockwork Orange, which I liked.

Last movie I saw was Inside Out. I found it very 'okay'. Only saw it because it was brought up a few times among movie review channels I follow. Right from the get go I couldn't help but wonder what the movie would be like if the mc came from a dysfunctional family, rather than being a marry sue with first world problems. still, it was entertaining enough for a kids movie I guess.

Before that I finally got around to seeing ant-man, and found it pretty enjoyable. Story was a bit paint by numbers but they had some really neat and creative action scenes.

Is it just me or do the MCU movies feel less like 'movies' and more like big budget tv episodes of a long running series?

Two Japanese films I've seen are 'Goemon' and 'Dai Nipponjin'.

'Goemon' is a fun and well-done film to watch, background is Goemon is Japanese Robin Hood.
'Dai Nipponjin' is interesting, what I took from it is it's a film about the degradation Capitalism and the post-war period has done to Japan and the Japanese people. In particular, making them weak and greedy.

Its an unfortunate phenomenon, but people from lesser nations are often jealous of Americans. These are the types of people who buy in to nationalism, they mistakenly connect their own identities to the neurotypicals who actually run the show and they feel the need to take out their anger at their own smallness and insignificance and blame all their problems on others. So instead of trying to build themselves up in to what they really want (a nation better than America) they cloud their thought processes with anger and stay small and insignificant.
This guy was trying to discuss his favorite domestic TV shows, but all he could get out was "I hate America", his shame at his own weakness pollutes his brain so much that he has difficulty communicating effectively.
>> No. 29532 [Edit]
Television is awful around the world.

I used to watch 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'.
It doesn't show on TV in my country much and I can't be bothered finding a place to stream Western TV so I dropped it.
Good stuff though.

Look at all this entertainment I have! The first week or two of every anime season are great, even if you drop most of the shows you check out, they still deliver that 22 minutes of first episode to amuse you.
What other periods of time are regularly worthwhile?

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.

committing crimes in public view is a really fantastic pose
in fact there is no other reason to commit crimes in public view
most criminals are more concerned with avoiding the penalties of getting caught than they are with how cool they look doing it.

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?
