Should governments make laws to protect people from hurting themselves?

>>35566
Yes. A person's life and meaningful freedoms aren't harmed if you prevent them from eating corn syrup shit and using meth. Both of which being harmful, addictive substances which exist solely for profit. There's no exact formula for these things, just a "I know what's killing people when I see it" approach.

No. Who decides what's "harmful?" You trust the same governments that wants to ban encryption and file-sharing with the power to outlaw arbitrary things? Also this thread should be in /tat/ I think.

All of these options are pretty terrible, mostly since you're competing with third world agencies by working online, but i might as well list them
>transcription work
high wpm will help you but you still won't make much, will eventually be replaced by a computer.
>art freelance
Any freelance site that takes a cut / blocks interaction outside of the website (i.e. fiverr) isn't worth the effort. If you know the software well and have a bit of experience you can find desperate small jobs, of course being paid little for a lot of work, and the people are sometimes very hard to work with
>code freelancing
probably the best bet, though I haven't tried it. Knew someone who basically got paid to do some kid's programming homework. As with all freelancing jobs your advantage over the third world is your ability to english
>other
with no real skills or abilities, but with some luck or networking, you might end up managing someone's wordpress / wix website. Old people feel good paying young people small amounts to do shit they don't want. Downside is all these jobs require social interaction, but with personal jobs like this you might get someone who is at least understanding.
>be a phone rep at home
this is legit work but it's the worst shit ever. Most stressed out I've ever been.
in any case your best bet is going through family members / friends because networking will get you 10x what a forum will. but everything (except transcription) requires social interaction to a large extent

Be born rich. Then you can fail at everything & still be "successful" like PoTUS 45.
>> No. 35592 [Edit]
With the recent trends due to el virus, I guess almost all software engineering jobs are indefinitely "work from home." Of course at that point you just have a full-time wage-slave job.

-people with shit taste. this is largely why i have no friends. i fucking refuse to hang out with someone with no standards. everyone i talk to, "dota 2", "shitty marvel movie", "shitty anime about talking about snacks and making squeaky noises for seven hours", "modern nintendo". no thanks. shit taste doesnt just lower my opinion of them, it actually ruins everything for me. why are no good things made anymore? because the world is full of shit eaters who are happy with garbage.
-normalfag's cruelty. it makes their dicks rock hard to make children homeless and downplay mental illness.
-retards that defend demonstrably shitty things for no reason, sometimes at their own expense ie. ignoring crime statistics, buying pitbulls just to be contrarian

I will be hijacking this thread for the purpose of consulting a disgusting health issue.

How do you deal with ingrown hairs?
I noticed an itchy bump in my groin yesterday. I thought it was just a pimple but today I took a closer look and there's four of these ingrown fuckers in one spot. They appear to sit under the skin surface in one swollen red bump, 10x5mm size.
I had a clean needle so I decided to pick at the spots where hairs appear to be trapped. I wiped it with alcohol and tried to break skin in each of these places, no idea if this will do anything good. I can't tell if I hit the right spots either. I think I did but I'd have to break my spine to take a closer look at it.
I put some generic antibiotic ointment on it, slapped a bandaid over but it's an awkward place so it barely sticks.
Do you think that will, uh... do the trick?

How do you feel about english songs in anime sountracks? What about songs actually made by western musicians? Stand Alone Complex has a lot of them and some are better than others. Berserk's bad op is another example. Made in Abyss's entire sound track was done by an australian team and I think they did a very good job, with the exception of two atrocious tracks featuring pop singers.

I generally dislike anything that reminds me too much of what plays on the radio. I'll never understand the "cool factor" english has for people that don't speak it natively.

I don't really care what language a song is, to me lyrics are just a different form of instrument and their meaning is only tertiary to how they sound in their song. If they are a good "instrument" then it's fine by me.

I like this interpretation. Baroque music used the human voice like any other instrument, demanding vocal techniques you wouldn't see as much later one.

Do you know any nice places to visit in Japan?
Especially anime related places.

I plan to go to Japan this year and try to find some less touristy places to go to.
The thread will most likely still be up so I can post some pictures I make.

Does any one recognize the place in this picture?

>Yes. Go to Kyoto or Nara. Get your ass out of the city. Don't spend more than a few days in Tokyo (make sure to spend a couple of hours at Akasaka and the imperial gardens, but otherwise avoid the concrete jungle, it is basically like any other big city in the West just in Japanese and with a lot more people crowding the place), the rest of Japan has a lot more character.
We plan to stay at last a week in the Kyoto area and get a 14 day railpass to visit some more remote places.
I have never been in any city outside of Europe, I don't know how much I'll like Toyko but I'm not a fan of big cities anyway.

>>31347
>https://anime-tourism.jp/. This is what you're looking for.

This one is nice. I don't recognise most places though.

>Have only been to the various Lucky Star locations in Saitama and Ooarai (twice) so far. First is a little bit depressing since you can see how its popularity is fading (quite literally, the flags in Satte or whatever you call them almost have no color anymore), second is still going well (they really know how to promote it).

The Lucky Star locations are a bit remote but I hope I can find time for it.

Ooari is from that one Girls and Panzer Episode?

Do you hold any spiritual beliefs? The subject has been on my mind a lot lately, particularly since having watched Your Name and Weathering With You. I read a bit about Shinto, and I suppose if anything I'm a bit sympathetic to it and similar kinds of beliefs that hold there is not a distinction between matter and spirit. The Greek notion of logos or pneuma is actually pretty similar in this regard.

Of course a difficulty is that I have never experienced anything that I would call spiritual, which could lead me to believe in a spiritual side of life.

I hold the belief that at a rough level there is some sort of collective conscious, and like you mentioned that >there is not a distinction between matter and spirit.
>> No. 34542 [Edit]
If there's no disctintion between matter and spirit, what is matter at all? See Berkeley.
>> No. 34632 [Edit]
Belief is something you choose for yourself, anyone can have spiritual beliefs if they want to. Since spiritual beliefs necessarily defy conventional logic, its impossible to disprove them convincingly and since they require faith, proving them convincingly negates the spiritual element. Until the airplane was invented, its was generally considered a given fact that birds could fly because god made them that way. These days we generally believe that birds can fly because of aerodynamics and evolution, but almost none of the people who hold those beliefs have studied either issue in detail. Most of the people who believe that birds can fly because of aerodynamics and evolution believe so because they trust "the experts". "The experts" function as the priests of the system of belief for most people, because those people have faith in "the experts". For most people the idea that birds can fly because of aerodynamics and evolution because "the experts" say so is fundamentally a spiritual type of belief, its not one based on learning, experience or observations, its a belief based on trusting their priests. Taking all that into account, there are probably a lot more people who hold spiritual beliefs than there are people who will admit that their system of beliefs is based on faith.
Its not out of the question that one day "the experts" will fully discern the functional mechanisms that make DNA work the way it does and they might understand how one very small core molecule governs the life of a person and determines their character and characteristics and then they'll be telling us all that souls were real all along, just like what those stupid old religious texts have been saying for thousands of years.
