I actually have a couple bags of sand, if anyone wants to know what they feel like. I went to the beach & brought home some sand (i like to keep it around just in case any of my potted plants get fungus gnats) and i realized I could make bags of sand pretty easily so I did. I image this is what anime girl's tits feel like, yes?

In defence of who you replied to... First time I saw this thread I only read "I actually have a couple bags of sand, if anyone wants to know what they feel like", thought "Heheh, ok..." and closed the tab. Until you read the very last sentence / question, you wouldn't know what the thread is really about.

Is it weird to not be obsessed with something? Online and off I keep encountering people who seem to have one track minds. All they know and all they ever talk about is is one or two things, in some cases people revolve their entire lives around these things. Everything from music, to gun nuts, to gear heads, to specific videogame franchises, or electronics brands. Is it normal for real people to be this two dimensional? Am I weird for not focusing one one or two things and learning everything there is to know about those things? Rather than exploring bits of everything out there?

I'm like that, I guess. When I find something that interests me it's hard for me to think about other things, I'm obsessed, I keep doing that all day until I kind of burn out.
Then I either stop doing anything and watch anime all day or find something else, which is often something I already was obsessed with at some point of my life. It's a cycle.
I didn't associate that with being normal though, rather with being autistic. I never met someone else like me before.
>> No. 30267 [Edit]
I'm the same exact way. To a sickening degree. I don't think that normal people are like this
>> No. 30270 [Edit]
normal people are like that. NTs are not like that.
don't give NTs credit for being mental healthy, NTs are uniformly insane. no intelligent, thinking person could ever accept those extreme levels of conformity. only an idiot savant with the knack for gaining social acceptance could.

Once a week, fill out the OP questions and let us know what you're up to!
Think of it as a FRIDAY NIGHT thread like on other sites, only you can post any day of the week at any hour of your choosing since NEETs don't have a schedule or any reason to look forward to the weekend.
Or, just a wordier and more demanding alternative to the daily report thread as a more relevant example.

What games are you playing today?

What anime, movies, YouTube channels etcetera are you watching today?

Have you been listening to any podcasts or music today?

Are you reading any manga or literature?

Still playing Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead. It's shit. I've realized now it's shit. I'm quitting today. I don't feel like writing a review, I don't think anyone cares here and I'm kind of pissed off about it.
I especially don't like games where you're supposed to handicap yourself to have fun, rather than the game enforcing difficulty on you organically. This is one of those. These last two posts where I said how hard of a time I was having was because of my own doing and not the game.

I guess I'll replay Ken's Rage 2 since I've been reading the Hokuto no Ken manga. It's a far cry from what I'd call a good game, but I suppose it captures the tone right.
Only truly disappointing thing about it is they didn't do an intro like they did in Ken's Rage 1.
I think this is the coolest opening ever.

I feel like watching a western. I have all of John Wayne's films downloaded, I guess I'll pick a random one.

3DPD warning: https://youtu.be/D8s_z8QhqQY this is my favorite kpop song and my favorite live performance. I listen to this on loop for weeks at a time and never seem to get burnt out.
I really love dancing.

Hokuto no Ken is slow to get through. I'm not even halfway done reading it.

My father's been emotionally scarring me again, I hate it when he fucking yells at me for making the slightest mistake and then patronizes me on the little details afterward. Sigh, more proof I'm better left alone anyway, can't wait to move out and have full independence.

At least I have places like these for my feelings, every time I let my emotions go with this family it always ends up being fucking worse. I'm rarely ever open about my own personal problems because every time I do they either don't understand and end up thinking even less about me (Did I mention it's SO FUN when your family almost has no hope in your future plans for reasons you don't understand).

I'm just surprised I can keep my emotions bottled up like this without snapping.

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 .

I guess the real question is who qualifies as an "oldfag".

For some, it's those who have been around since the start. I guess that excludes me. I've been around, but not for a LONG time. I feel a strong kinship with most of the people here. Some might call me a normie though. It's all hard to tell sometimes.

At the risk of sounding really immature and ignorant,
how good of an option is prison as an alternative to employment and responsibilities or homelessness?

I've been tossing this idea around in my head since I was very, very young. I always wondered why the homeless would not prefer the free medicine, food, clothing, shelter, bathing, in-house libraries, cable television, and socialization with like-minded degenerates (maybe not applicable for us) guaranteed by every jail or prison in the world.

Why not us NEETs? Everyone here is always worrying for their futures, and the unsustainable and fragile status of NEEThood. Have you considered prison when our time runs out as I have?

I worry about the blacks of course, but it doesn't seem difficult at all to get put into solitary confinement. Some are put into solitary merely for affiliation with certain groups--you could just claim to be a white nationalist during your screening, and your spot in solitary is reserved for you instantly. Or you could just spit on a guard and get taken there by force... I simply see absolutely no cons (no pun intended) to prison living, so long as you stick to solitary confinement. Every bad thing I hear about the place has to do with the other inmates exclusively.

Just seems to me like a very advanced version of welfare/disability.

Your thoughts?

Picture related, a very good book about how the prison life can be preferable to the outside world, though it goes without saying that Japanese prison is vastly different (and superior) to Western prisons.

I saw this video once where a guy went in for stealing something and he had to eat his own fingers. He ate two and a half but that wasn't enough so he was burned alive. That was in south america though but makes me think prison is not a good place
>> No. 30250 [Edit]
Getting thrown in to prison is my greatest fear, no lie, if I ever know they are coming for me beforehand, I would just kill myself, for real, no questions, I would NOT want to be alive in prison for a single day.
>> No. 30251 [Edit]
I completely agree. I'd rather be homeless and living on the streets than that.

From the J-List newsletter: "One of the more refreshing aspects of Japan is the laissez faire attitude companies take to certain aspects of Japanese copyright, specifically "doujin" or fan-produced works such as ecchi doujinshi comics that explore improbable relationships between characters, or other kinds of non-official creative works like music remixes and soundtracks and, er, anime onaholes. In the decades since the first Comiket in 1975, an odd tradition of allowing free use of copyrighted works has grown up, due to the fact that virtually every industry artist got his or her start making doujinshi, and the reality that every modern anime needs a healthy "ecosystem" of doujin artists in order to make a mark with fandom. When studios went to remake the venerable 1974 Space Battleship Yamato franchise, they understood the need to engage fans from several angles, including adding in fan-service and encouraging creators to make fanart using the characters. But now an animation studio is trying to stop these creative works: the owners of Love Live are asking doujin circles and shops to completely stop distributing products featuring their characters, citing Japanese copyright rules. Since Bandai also tried (and failed) to use Japanese copyright to ban Pokemon doujin works back in the day, I'm sure this new development won't affect things much, but it is kind of a disappointment."

I'm glad I never watched Love Live, nor bought any merchandise. Never will, now, either, and will inform others of why. I'll definitely never watch this anime, nor read its manga, ever.... considering how much money I spend on merchandise, they might regret it if this is a frequent opinion of people. Just, go away. Just, please go bankrupt, you fuckers... =_=

>there is fan fiction for sale of every single popular anything ever
It is referring to the legal sale of copyrighted intellectual property at events such as natsucomi. There is no Western equivilent; you cannot legally profit from fan-fiction of intellectual property for which you have not obtained the rights to, and therefore there is no market event for sales of such items.
>> No. 30247 [Edit]
I wonder if this is something the people working on the show support or not. It seems like the kind of decision that would come from higher-ups in the corporate ladder who are concerned about the "image" of their franchise. And why Love Live in particular? They own Idolmaster too but they aren't they trying to crack down on doujin works there?
>> No. 30248 [Edit]
You cant legally create fan-fiction. profit or not. Japan or west. But companies allow it, mostly

Finals this, finals that...
Is it just me or does it seem like every person on the internet is attending classes in some form or another? Do people destroy their computers when they finish school or do they just attend schools for all eternity? It feels rare to meet people online who work regular jobs and who don't still have homework to do on the side, or who are truly NEET for that matter.

I have written philosophy and posted it here before, but my degree is in Experimental Psychology.

I won't lie, higher education can do wonders for your intellect so long as you escape the whole liberal hivemind that tends to predominate in academia (although it wasn't so terrible when I went and I was in the American South at the time, so that makes sense that it would be more tolerable). Still, no job and no sense of real purpose. Then again, what is a real purpose? And we all know that even a high-paying job usually brings misery.

Maybe I dodged a bullet. I like to think that I'm better off, although I may not be.

I'm here. I think most NEETs don't blogpost much because, well, what is there to talk about outside of our hobbies? The lifestyle is the same routine year in and year out for most I'd assume.

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.

For some reason every dream I have now has some segment involving large passenger planes crashing, and they land closer and closer to me every time I dream. This time I was grazed by a turbine that shot out of an explosion from a nearby crash. When I was watching the GuP movie today I was startled by the cargo plane flying overhead. It might have something to do with living near a large airport, because I used to love planes.

A had an absolutely bizarre dream, closely related to shitposting. I was at some rock concert with a bunch of girls from various anime, including this seasons eromanga sensei. The lead singer was a black dude, and when he was singing it caused all the girls present to orgasm. For some reason, I felt like I was being NTR'd. I think I need to take a break from the internet.

I had a dream where I was at some university-like place where there were a ton of students and stuff, and I was there with my mother for some reason. I sort of forgot what it was like when it seemed like a normal day, however, as soon as I got into the parking lot building thing, gigantic teeth, big enough to destroy buildings fell out of the sky. There was no chance for people under them to survive, unless they got lucky or were in a position to somehow move out of the way from these massive things. The teeth missed the building I was in by incredible chance as there were a few really, really close.

After realsing that the incident occurred, a scientist or someone that knew how to investigate this kind of phenomenon managed to figure out that the creature that these teeth fell out of was a really powerful, omnivorous creature that had to have its mouth sealed permanently as to not devour living things. Apparently, its favorite food happened to be chicken.

I then thought: "How does a creature without the ability to open its mouth or that technically does not have a mouth lose its teeth?" . This thought followed me throughout getting out of bed 5 minutes ago, and I believe that the scientist might also be a hack and a fraud.
