I'm fairly sure "getting a girl's number" means hitting on her in a bar/party/whatever and convince her to hand over her number so he can get in touch with her. I don't know, maybe everything's on facebook now.

Today, I think I had a revelation.
I think normals like talking to each other because they do things that give them a sense of accomplishment. And thus, they have things to talk about.

I don't like talking to people because I have no accomplishments and therefore nothing to say, and so talking to people uses up time I could be using to try and do something that makes me feel like I'm a sack of shit. However, because I am a sack of shit, it takes me an inordinate amount of time to do something and inevitably fail. And then I have nothing to talk about with people because I can't do anything.

I don't really think "It's all boasting about your various achievements." is a very encompassing view of why people would talk to each other. Probably a kernel of truth to it though; when I last met some of my old acquaintances from school times they mostly discussed some real esoteric tech research one of them was doing for some fancy university title thesis and various get-rich-quick schemes.
But eventually things did turn to the dreaded "So what have you been up to?" which deflected things to a pleasant conversation on the latest news in Chinese cartoons, physics, and hot 2hu tips after some slightly shocking concern over me "not doing anything with my life." (Were they always the kind of people to worry about stuff like that?)

So I guess my latest singular sample of anecdotal non-evidence on social interactions in "normal people" partly does confirm that having to prove something about your undeniably high societal status and wealth might well be a very common part of the formula, but also that reasonable and potentially enlightening discussion about things and not people is likely at least somewhat commonly had.

Everyone agreed we should meet up again. Haven't seen or heard anything of anyone in well over a year once again.
Maybe next summer will be one of those. Or the one after. Or maybe not.

Hard to keep track of how many it's been lately. Maybe that was actually this year for all I know.
How old am I really?
Don't think about it. Just go play one of them video games or something.

How about just pics and links with some comment, this time?

Part 1/3. Now you can begin to imagine what Fuminori experienced everyday (also: some of the most faithful depictions of 3D sex I have ever seen in part 3/3).

First Lain video I ever saw.
Back in 2000-something it was labeled "Layer 00" on Kazaa, so I thought it was a promo video or something. It's well-made enough that I assumed that for a while. It took me a few weeks to find out what the hell an "AMV" was. Good times.

I find it to be therapeutic.

It's a personality trait. If those things are really hindering you, you could organise your room/stuff to be both accessibly and tidy looking. It'll get untidy after a week, that's why it's a weekly thing. For dust you could wear a face mask that filters the air.
>> No. 24614 [Edit]
I have thought about that. Hard to come up with anything that doesn't involve a furniture overhaul. Weekly cleaning is just out of the table the way things are now.
The masks aren't a bad idea, I need to look where I can obtain these.

That's fantastic, thanks. A shame that it's in C#, Mono never ran anything 100% here. Will try it later anyway.

what are some things that really bug you?
things that genuinely piss you off?

I thought it would be nice to have a thread to vent about any little annoyance, no mater how big or small.
Any and all complains about the world around you are welcome here!

I absolutely cannot stand losing in online games, especially when I feel like I've been let down by teammates.

It's really becoming quite a problem. I'm losing friends and destroying property. Just before typing this I threw an $80 mouse across the room.

Is anyone getting sick of *chan sites and going back to normal forums?

After browsing chan sites nearly daily for hours on end, you start to think that people being snarky mean assholes to each other is the norm. Which is quite untrue. And the notion perpetuated on *chan websites that anything that isn't a chan is complete shit, is also untrue.

So long as you can find the right forum, the quality of anime/manga/media discussion is of a much higher quality than that on *chan sites. In addition, people are much friendlier. For instance some of the anime/manga discussions on MyAnimeList under the specific title's forum are pretty good. For more general things, Reddit is actually pretty good, despite all the hate from 4chan. The upvote system provides a structure that encourages informational posts, wit and friendliness.

Yes, there are really bad forums, such as gaia. But there are many good ones. Even on the good ones, you'll sometimes get one or two know it all types or irritating teenage weeaboos, but I find that somewhat more tolerable than whats currently on 4chan's /a/. And you don't have that duckspeak-like language on 4chan including greentext, implying, X is best girl, reaction images, X will win the Xbowl, etc etc. /jp/'s community is considerably more knowledgeable and serious about their hobbies, but good discussion is sandwiched between lots of bad threads. And you know, even sites like good old tohno-chan, can frequently extremely hostile and narrowminded.

pre-emptive warning: please don't turn this thread into a shitstorm about how 4chan/tohno-chan is 'shit', be civil.

I've seen that image a billion of times and I never even realized it's a goddamn monitor. Then again I never looked at it closely but still. I always assumed the point is she is trying to kill herself. By moving one of those tables away and dropping that iron weight on her head. I'm worried I might be legitimately retarded.
>> No. 24596 [Edit]
>she is trying to kill herself
Of course not. She's so lazy that she won't even sit upright to use the monitor.

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.

Four other people and I went to a secret factory to analyze cheese from different pizzas. The machine we used to do this could be harmful because everything sticks to it permenantly except pizza cheese. Somehow one of the people I was with messed up and did something they weren't supposed to. This caused some other machine in the room to turn on and bring up from really far underground(really quick)some terminator-like cyborg. I think they also got part of that machine stuck to them. After this I wake up.

I was at home browsing Tohno-Chan when the doorbell rang. I looked out the window, and saw a group of men with rifles at the door, and I realized it was the Fourth of July. "Oh, its the NRA" I thought. Every Fourth of July, when people were the most patriotic, the NRA would go to every door in this backwoods town to solicit donations.

As I went to the door, my Sister handed me a rifle. I asked why she was giving it to me. "Well," she said "you at least want to look like you care, idiot". I gave her back the rifle and told her that I would just tell them like it is, that I did support 2nd Amendment rights but did not support the NRA on ideological grounds. And so she thrust it back to me, and told me not to look a like a jerk. And so I thrust it back and retorted. This goes on for a few moments, until realize we are in front of the door and the men outside can obviously hear.

I open the door, and the fellow outside looks at us disgracefully, and simply says "forget about it," the group of men turning away to get into the back of their Ford Ranger.

And then I wake up and realize that the doorbell was actually ringing. It was my Sister's boyfriend, who had been locked out.

I had read a guro manga similar to Mai-chan's Daily Life in that it was just a series of ludicrously violent things that happen to a protagonist that can't die.

Next thing that happens in the dream is that I'm back in high school for some reason, and the sociology (for some reason now a high school subject) teacher assigns the manga for school reading. Also, at the end of the manga, for some reason the "delivery man" shows up. He is the demoman from TF2. I don't remember any other details from the manga.

I had a dream last night where I was murdered.
I don't remember what led up to it, but I was being held hostage in the 3rd backseat row of a van. I had tried to escape over a fence in a backyard overgrown with weeds into a wooded alley earlier but they caught me and tied me in fetters. I remember the key to my escape is socks, but I can't find any. We drive to a large facility and I chat with the scientists until I'm tied spread eagle to a table, where they cut my penis off. Then they lowered a bandsaw into my chest sawing my sternum in half from top to bottom and blood was everywhere. When I 'died' I woke up and spent a long time trying to calm down, it still felt like there was blood all over me.

Do you speak Japanese? There are a lot of really small and okay-ish anime boards like good old futaba.

I don't have much experience because I've not been browsing Japanese boards actively for too long but here are some things I noticed.

二次元画像掲示板 - dat.2chan.net/img2/futaba.htm
Is my favorite futaba board, it features mostly discussion about anime and manga without porn and crap everywhere like in the 2D/random boards. The posting quality on this one dropped over the years and it's not the greatest but it is leagues above 4chan and the like because people tend to actually discuss shit without meme spouting and off-topic discussion.

フィギュア - dat.2chan.net/46/
I'm not really into collecting figures but it looks okay at first glance.

パソコン - bbs17.meiwasuisan.com/pc/
PC board at MeiwaSuisan, I don't browse this one personally but still found it worth mentioning because there are quality posts.
MeiwaSuisan also has an anime board and stuff like that but I don't like the users, their posting behaviour is pretty normie-like.

I don't browse text boards but from what I've heard major 2channel boards are complete shit these days. I wouldn't be suprised if they're so popular, but there might be smaller invisible boards on there with better posts. I have no idea though, you'd have to look for yourself.

Most jap boards tend to be so dead that you can completely forget them. Often people then just dump images to their liking. Example: cap.nullgiko.net/2j-jikkyou/2j-jikkyou.htm

Baculum is a latin word that used to define a cudgel that was used, amongst other reasons, to beat slaves and children. It is used now as the term that defines the penis bone that some animals have, although absent in humans, which serves to auxiliate in erection during copula. These penis bones can sometimes be big enough to make a cudgel out of depending of the animal, especially because some are extremely hard and can be used as a bludgeon or club.

This could be used as the opening quote to an H-game.
