What did you eat today?

For lunch I had some leftovers of the tofu and rice stir fry I made a couple of nights ago. It's got snow peas, cashews, onions, mushrooms, and, of course, tofu on top of rice. I haven't made this in some years, but it sure came out delish this time.

Cuddle (2nd place: Sleepy)
>least favourite word
Pick any word SJWs tend to use (typing any of them would be painful)
>what turns you on
Physical: Hugging, holding hands, showering/bathing. Other: Politeness, servitude (so I definitely do love maids), cuteness, purity, timelessness (being detached from most modern trends)
>what turns you off
Anything graphic, extreme or dirty, loudness in general, brunt/aggressive behaviour
>sound or noise you love
Sounds from the beach, rain (nature sounds in general), music boxes
>sound or noise you hate
Anything loud really (that isn't from my headphones when I set it to high volume on purpose), since my hearing's very sensitive... though if it's a natural sound such as thunder, I don't mind too much
>favourite curse word
I use "shit" the most, but my favorite is "doofus" though it's not much of a curse

Ever since the age of 5 I've been picking and biting my nails and skin. I've always kept my nails really short to the point where they can't be used for anything and I peel the skin on my fingertips so much that sometimes I expose the sensitive layer that hurts. This is a habit I probably picked up from my dad from me watching him do it at such a young age.
Since last year, I've been keeping my clippings in an empty pill container. I'm starting to get attached to my collection. When I don't have my container with me, I will hold on to my peeled nail and/or skin until I can deposit them in the right place. What used to be just an act of nervousness or being bored has now become a hobby of mine.

Does anyone else do the same thing? Or do you have another bad habit like this?

I pick my nose when I feel no one's looking. I know I shouldn't but I can't help it. After a while it starts to feel clogged up and gets on my nerves. Talking to a doctor about it once and he gave me some nasal sprays which didn't help much.

I also sometimes talk to myself. Helps me think to voice my thoughts.
>> No. 27541 [Edit]
As long as no one is looking and you make sure that your hands are clean before and after doing it, I don't see how picking your nose is a bad habbit.

Talking to yourself is a good thang I feel, its funny.
>> No. 27542 [Edit]
It will eventually stretch out your nostrils and if you aren't careful you might damage some of the more exposed blood vessels and start a bleeding. Granted, you probably won't die from it, but it's annoying.
>> No. 27543 [Edit]
Really? If I continually do it will I get a nigger's nose? Gross

I feel like imageboards are either too fast, too shitty or too slow. I would like to start using forums again, does tc know of any good ones?
I'm mostly looking somewhere to discuss the usual tohno stuff. JRPGs especially, but anything goes really.
If there is a good place to discuss something in particular, please post it

This pretty much.


Well, /vg/ is the place you actually want but sure, why not.
Really late to the party but I more or less finished Xenoblade Chronicles. Logged 140h into it. I'd be willing to go into more detail but again, /vg/ material.
>> No. 27538 [Edit]
I haven't played anything recently, but I can barely wait for the new Mount and Blade to come out. The wait has been long but I think they are finally releasing it this year. It's going to be an amazing game.
>> No. 27539 [Edit]
I can't wait for it either but sadly I don't think it will be released this year.

Vol 6: http://www.mediafire.com/download/f7d0r3lw3dmxdas

We finished translating the first EX CD (it's in QC now). Unfortunately we made a stupid mistake and started translating them in wrong order - we translated winter before summer. If it bothers you you can wait a couple of weeks, we've already begun working on the other EX CD.

We translated a series of EX vids in which each character introduces the other 5. Here they are:

I don't want to bore you with an in-dept report regarding our future plans so I'll just keep it short.
We still don't really plan to translate Vol 4-6. Various reasons. They are fun CDs so if you understand Japanese you should give them a shot.
I kinda plan to translate self-introduction vids for vol 1/2/3. When (hopefully 'when', not 'if') I'll get that done I'll post them in this thread but I intend to sage it since it's not particularly important anyway.

Most importantly Ririkuru is getting a VN! It has its own vndb entry now: https://vndb.org/v18057
All the details are unknown yet pretty much, all we know is that it'll be called 'Ririkuru Rainbow Stage'.
We actually kinda sorta would like to translate it but we'll have to read through it first to figure out if we're up for the job.

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.

It kind of just started to happen after my 30th birthday. I'm a wizard, so maybe there is some truth behind the internet myth.

Do you think it's possible that you're experiencing some kind of psychosis or something similar? It doesn't sound like you're being negatively affected so that's good.
>> No. 27189 [Edit]

It is possible. I have thought about that before, especially since virtually no one else experiences that. But on the other hand, it only happens when I'm half-asleep and it is more interesting than anything else. So long as it doesn't control my whole reality, I'll probably be okay.

I was at a water park/school with a water area. I was there for a while. Then there was a runaway airplane that I saw a few jets going after and everyone was freaking about about it. I was able to shoot it down with a button on my cell phone that shot a stream of water out of the back. After it crashed on the ground it was a bouncing ball I had to chase around. I was chasing it around for a while shooting it with my cell phone water gun. but soon the water ran out. after that I yelled "Stop that canadian!" and a french guy caught it.

Why does it seem like the word "otaku" is taboo these days online?

Not just on the infamous mother *chan, of course. Everywhere from tumblr to reddit to YouTube comments, everyone just spouts

At the mere mention or sight of anything anime-related. What happened? Do you guys care?

It's just shitty ironic Gen X humor. They like anime themselves but sprout it when they see anime because self-deprecation is the new funny thing to do. It's also why everyone calls themselves "trash" to the point of it being irritating.

>It's also why everyone calls themselves "trash" to the point of it being irritating.

I wasn't aware that this was a common thing, but I'm not aware of much, because I generally try to avoid interacting with people.
I call myself trash because I am. Also to the point of it becoming irritating because that's inherent in the tedious, repetitive, untenable thoughts of trash. Usually I don't bring it up because it irritates me enough as it is. It must really irritate the reader of this post. It can't be helped. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
