Why do people like Steve Jobs so much? People act like he's some revolutionary hero who changed the world and idolize him as such. Far as I know he was just the face of a company that produced overpriced fashionable electronics designed for morons.

Is death the end? What happens to our personalities, our memories, our thoughts, our feelings, our experiences and our sentience when we die?

I don't believe in gods in the traditional sense or an afterlife, but I do sometimes wonder if our consciousness is like an electrical field or something and our mind lives on after our body dies.

They simply die with your brain, presumably.

I would like to believe in the concept of a soul or something similar, but I honestly doubt anything like it exists.

Kenshiro and Guts.

I can't be entirely sure if there are more since my mind is as scattered as a box full of puchidol. I do know that I was definitely inspired by a couple more, but I feel that these two have definitely had a sizable impact on me.

My adopted grandfather, the only man left in my family with a clue regarding finances and frugality. His only major fault is having been so laid back, so hands off. So now nobody has a clue what they're doing.

While stereotypical, I really admire Nikola Tesla. The schizoid in me connects with his desire to just invent shit in his lab away from other people.

From history I admire a lot of people. Benjamin Franklin, Andrew Jackson, Caesar Augustus, Agrippa. There's more but they escape me at the moment.

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?

The mobile game Sid Story is a card collecting game with anime style versions of historical characters. Today they updated it to display more historically accurate images of the characters.

What other April 1st gags have you come across this year?

>>30051 What >>30058 said. It should only take a few minutes. Their recent updates even made it so there's an icon on the normal(feed) cards that show if they've been idolized or not. You can also filter it to show only the feed characters.

I wish they would make the girls in sid story look more like the people they're based on. Like at least the clothes and hair color.

I'd like to see less fujoshi bait characters, and maybe more consistency with some of the lower level card designs. They range from deformed chibi girls to weird eeg creatures. If nothing else I'd be happy if they just removed those disgusting looking bear cards. Those things are just so... like really what in the fuck are those things and what are they doing there?

Although it could be useful for my supports, even more than I think, I want to use them to max out my future SR/UR Nozomi if/when I get her.

Also, I play the game as casually as possible, so that doesn't really matter for the moment, even if my skills are awful at the moment because of my lack of playing the game more than once a day to get the single gem.

I don't get it guys. Shouldn't it be a well established fact by now that a large portion of anime fans love DFC? So why is everyone always putting down characters with flat chest in anime, manga, and games? Sure cow tits might be considered ideal in the real world, but when has that ever stopped anime from pandering to what it's fans want, not what's realistic?

I got no problem with women who have cow tits being present in anime, variety is a good thing after all. I just wish flat chested girls weren't always being made fun of, or made to feel insecure and inferior to those other women. They almost always treat it like a problem that needs to be fixed, often by chugging lots of milk. It's rare to see anyone just point out in an anime that lots of guys actually prefer DFC.

Just watched Queens Blade, and I noticed the exact same dynamic with Aldra

As a loli, she is an army-crushing, nation-uniting badass, but when she returns to her normal physical age, she becomes more reserved and less ambitious

Right, so we've been trying to find a use for the discord chat, and we've come up with Tohno-chan karaoke night!

What do you guys think?

We still need a time to do it and a DJ to play our tunes.

Apparently, you're supposed to listen to music in 44.1hz.
Computers are default to 48hz (standard for film and such) and without some research there's no obvious indication that this is how it's supposed to be.
With how much people listen to music, I feel I should have come across this knowledge sooner as it should be more common parlance. It's not hard at all to change either.

I noticed it heaps. In fact, in the beginning, I wasn't sure what I was hearing was good or not because it was so different to what I was used to.
It's less dense, in 44.1, in that the sound is more spread out so you can hear more of each instrument.
>> No. 29946 [Edit]
>>29945
And I don't mean spread out as in pulling it thin but spread out as in to lay perfectly flat as before it was squished.

I think it may be more pronounced at higher volumes. I tested it first on speakers which I turn to a moderate-loud volume.
>> No. 29954 [Edit]
>>29945
I think I noticed a slight increase in clarity for songs with a very high pitch, but I wasn't 100% certain if it was legitimate or only seemed that way because I was listening for it.

Then again, it could boil down to a difference in our sound systems. I'm running some fairly old speakers.
>> No. 29998 [Edit]
>>29954
My sound system on computer is basic stuff as well.
I also don't hear too much of a difference on my computer and, actually, the first time I tried it and heard the amazing difference was when I changed it on my PS3.
My computer is stock from an office so the sound card is pretty trash, I learnt recently, but the PS3 actually has a very good sound card and so that's why I noticed such an improvement on that.
