Do you ever feel ashamed or guilty when you find or look back on the things you liked in the past?

This song makes me feel some comfort but regret as well. I spent a lot of my time playing games since it was the only time I ever felt... not useless. The alternative wasn't great; my parents were mad at me a lot because of my grades (I was lazy), I would get made fun of in school sometimes and I didn't have many friends. Thankfully the few I had were great friends. When my life wasn't school or home it was videogames, perhaps the only time where I didn't feel as if something bad would happen but if it did I could handle it. I probably should have lived life but it might not have worked out so well.

This song brings me comfort and regret.

Yes, over stupid stuff from when I was a kid. When I was around 6 I was in foster care, swore at school a lot, had no friends, stole from school, and even though I was only 6, I had to go to the city to have tests on me to see what was wrong with me, just because my parents drank and smoked. Up until high school, I never really had any friends.

Some people apparently get extremely anxious when leaving their room, specially if the house configurations makes it having to encounter people on your way to the bathroom, specially when their parents, siblings, room mates, etc. have visitors.

I'm a student at university not a teacher."Education" as the first E in NEET.
Will likely do some small job at university soon.

I'll never understand this anxiety, I just ignore people when I don't want to talk with them.

It has more to do with their mere presence than [potential] conversation.

A fear of other human beings is probably nigh-impossible to imagine if you don't have it, but that also applies to virtually every phobia, along with certain elements of other neurological disorders (for example, the fact that many people on the autism spectrum are completely unable to perceive sarcasm, irony, and metaphors).

Some people don't like drinking out of bottles and cans. You can wash a glass afterwards, so it's not wasted.

You know, some of us do actually enjoy the taste of beer, and shockingly, did start drinking it because we enjoyed the flavor, not because we want to get drunk. The normies who define themselves by their public image rather than true character drink lager garbage (Bud, Miller, carbonated urine, etc). There are, however, some people who enjoy sipping on a good craft beer while they watch their anime.

There's nothing like getting cozy on a rainy day, wrapped in my blankets, watching Sakura Trick as I enjoy a good, dark stout. Comfy. I'm so glad it's winter.

Sounds like me and tobacco. I always liked the smell of it and was surprised to learn normal people actually don't (it always sounded like hyperbole to me). Naturally I started smoking but mostly for the taste.

Can't stand the taste of alcohol though and it chooses to make me feel sick rather than good 4 out of 5 times.
>> No. 29704 [Edit]
>>29684
Yep, you sound like me. There is such a thing as good beer, albeit not everybody will like beer period.

How do I become a paid internet shill? People often seem to think paid internet shills exist, do they? I would probably be pretty good at it if they paid me enough. Who are they and how do I contact them?

Thanks to the information provided by Edward Snowden, the existence of paid government shills that misdirect and manipulate political discourse on the internet was confirmed a while back. I don't recall any mention of how they picked up these people, though. The NSA and CIA scouts hackers in relevant colleges, so my only guess is that they'd do something similar for paid shills/trolls.

I've seen ads for entry level shilling on amazon's mechanical turk before.
That was an ad for actual political canvassing before.
The jidf as a particular example has both unpaid shills and paid shills, and in both cases it uses software to track the activity of the users (especially important for the paid shills, who were paid using a fairly complex metric according to anons who claimed to be paid jidf shills on a site which was confirmed (by the twitter feed of the actual jidf) to be shilled on).

If anime has thought me anything it's that teru teru bozu aren't all that effective. According to anime a much more reliable strategy is to find someone who's sad and cheer them up.

You probably need a 2D one since 3D anything is never as good as 2D. Probably also needs to be made by a 2D loli at that for full potency.

whats the best country to move to if you just want to live off welfare and lurk the internet?

None, considering in most, if not all, of these countries, you need to have nationality to apply for NEETbux. The alternative is to go to Germany, Netherlands, Belgium or Sweden, burn your passport and then claim you're a refugee or something equally stupid.

I had a recurring fantasy of going to North Korea to seek asylum from the trappings of life in the west. Of course, they would probably either always suspect me or execute me on the spot, and North Korea has it's own problems. Why would they support me? They don't even feed their own citizens. Still, it's nice to think about before bed.

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 .

Should 4chan shut down, almost everyone will go to 8chan. It's the second biggest imageboard and already has /a/, /v/, /b/, /pol/, /tv/, /co/ and /r9k/.

>People are simply worried you won't be able to take care of all the normalfags who shitpost about how much they hate anime or whatever faceberg /soc/ garbage they will inevitable drag here.
That's just what almost all self-described anime fans in the West are like, even if they've been watching since the 80s. There is no anime fandom in the West and never was. No place is exempt, not even /an/. It's all shit.

Yeah and you're totally not one of them and thats why its perfectly OK that you come to TC to discuss 4chan metashit. Fucking hell this whole site was built exclusively so that uninteresting 4channers could have 4chan meta discussion about their home site when they were somewhere else on the internet, so thanks for stopping by & don't forget to tell your friends at 4chan all about us, OK?
Thanks & goodbye, have a good time on 4chan! see you next time

I did not start this thread so I don't know why you're suddenly complaining to me about this.

Fact is, sleep takes up a large fraction of anyone's life. Have a comfortable bed & a large fraction of your life is excellent.
Please tell me ways to improve the quality & volume of my sleeping.

Where have you being buying your mattresses? I think you have been severely ripped off. I got a 10-inch-hight memory foam mattress for like €800 a couple of years ago and it's still perfect (and can be flipped over but I didn't have to so far. I've been gaining weight like crazy, to the point I'd consider myself morbidly obese now... and still no issues.

I think part of the issue is that i spend an abnormal amount of time in my bed. Whenever I'm watching anime or tv or something I do it while laying down in bed, and a lot of time i browse the internet from my bed as well.
>> No. 29524 [Edit]
I've been sleeping on the floor for about a year now.

At first it was because my family got a bad case of bedbugs and we didn't have the money to buy a new mattress.

I started to like it so I never got a new one. It's actually not that bad. Tried to find some actual research on it but just came up with advertisements and bro-science.

I found a few things claiming mattresses are actually bad for you because they slowly wear your back down. Seems like it might be bullshit but i lines up with my experience so I've rolled with it.

Another great sleep aid is a program called f.lux. Takes a while to get used to but makes you want to go to bed at a reasonable hour.

Buy goose down, some plain white bed or simple sheets, and a cheap sewing machine. If you can figure it out, this is the ultimate in comfy.

I saw a very long Japanese drama film about a month ago, I disliked it so much I don't remember the name. Relatively recently I watched the 1962 Lolita movie, it wasn't really particularly great, I remember the more it went on the less it made sense and the more confused I got. Someday I will watch the 90s remake, but meh. I also saw A Clockwork Orange, which I liked.

Last movie I saw was Inside Out. I found it very 'okay'. Only saw it because it was brought up a few times among movie review channels I follow. Right from the get go I couldn't help but wonder what the movie would be like if the mc came from a dysfunctional family, rather than being a marry sue with first world problems. still, it was entertaining enough for a kids movie I guess.

Before that I finally got around to seeing ant-man, and found it pretty enjoyable. Story was a bit paint by numbers but they had some really neat and creative action scenes.

Two Japanese films I've seen are 'Goemon' and 'Dai Nipponjin'.

'Goemon' is a fun and well-done film to watch, background is Goemon is Japanese Robin Hood.
'Dai Nipponjin' is interesting, what I took from it is it's a film about the degradation Capitalism and the post-war period has done to Japan and the Japanese people. In particular, making them weak and greedy.

Its an unfortunate phenomenon, but people from lesser nations are often jealous of Americans. These are the types of people who buy in to nationalism, they mistakenly connect their own identities to the neurotypicals who actually run the show and they feel the need to take out their anger at their own smallness and insignificance and blame all their problems on others. So instead of trying to build themselves up in to what they really want (a nation better than America) they cloud their thought processes with anger and stay small and insignificant.
This guy was trying to discuss his favorite domestic TV shows, but all he could get out was "I hate America", his shame at his own weakness pollutes his brain so much that he has difficulty communicating effectively.

I used to watch 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'.
It doesn't show on TV in my country much and I can't be bothered finding a place to stream Western TV so I dropped it.
Good stuff though.

Look at all this entertainment I have! The first week or two of every anime season are great, even if you drop most of the shows you check out, they still deliver that 22 minutes of first episode to amuse you.
What other periods of time are regularly worthwhile?
