i came up with this idea that neets prefer to interact with the computer rather than humans because the computer is more trustworthy while humans are endlessly and inscrutably manipulative and deceptive. does this seem plausible, that people withdraw from human contact as a result of one too many backstabbings?

I don't think you understand what NEET means. It's an acronym that means (N)ot in (E)education, (E)mployment, nor (T)raining. You can be a NEET and simultaneously be an extremely extroverted person, pretty much the kind that would resemble the dog in pic related. For example, someone who doesn't work or study and plays in bars with their band for free would qualify; hobos that love congregating and drinking in corners with their fellow reprobates qualify as well, and so on. Maybe you're confusing NEETs with Hikikomori?

I think you misunderstand what NEETs are, like what >>31766 mentioned. NEETs aren't necessarily withdrawn, introverted people, the definition of NEET is just an unemployed person. There are plenty of people on the dole that spend their days socialising.

I don't hate people, I just like being by myself. Being alone is great.

Is it weird to have your laptop like this in bed? Like before you go to sleep or something. Not a great drawing but I'm drunk and not an artist either.

Keeping your laptop on your bed like that could cause it to over heat due to the air intake on the bottom being blocked.
>> No. 31726 [Edit]
>>31725
Depends on the laptop. Some actually get air from the back, not the bottom. And some newer low-power laptops, such as Chromebooks, have no fans at all. They use ARM CPUs instead of x86, and even though they're slower, they make much less heat, similar to a phone or tablet.

I used do do that, but it wasn't comfy, so I got a monitor arm, attached it to my nightstand, and now I can achieve maximum sloth, not even having to turn my head.
>> No. 31741 [Edit]
I tend to put serveral pillows under my head so my neck doesn't hurt. While I prefer lying down with my laptop like that over using my desktop when I'm tired, I tend to not do it a lot because the area where I place the laptop (so either the chest or bladder area) will just end up hurting a lot.

Okay so lets say you're given the chance to get a do over on life and start over as a girl.
There's a catch, but you get to pick the catch.

- You can be a cute 2D anime girl, but it will be in the world of a horror anime and you die a slow painful death at an early age.

- You're a cute 2d anime girl, but you are born blind and deaf, and can never be cured.

- you can be born as whatever kind of girl you want, but you'll be born in the poorest part of south Africa.

- you're an ugly 2D anime girl who's abused and molested by her father, bullied and treated like shit at school, you never get to have friends, and you die alone as a fat fujoshi.

- you're a cute 2D anime girl from a typical slice of life anime with cute loving friends and are part of a club of your choosing, but you're forced to relive the same 13 days of high school until the end of time.

I've spent a lot of time on different forums and boards. Even been a part of my fair share of real life groups, teams and whatnot. There's one thing that irks me to no end - whatever the group, whatever the forum, there's always one or two people that seem to absolutely hate and detest me from the get-go. Whatever I try to do to appease them just furthers their disdain (as does distancing myself from them or ignoring them).
The thing is, I'm a decently amiable person. I go out of my way to find common ground with nearly everyone and it usually works. Usually. Even if I don't get the person to like me, I can at least be on friendly terms with almost everyone. Almost.

Yes there's that 'haters gonna hate' stuff. It doesn't help. I don't know if these people sniff vulnerabilities out or if I'm just making a major faux pax everwhere I go. Maybe it's just some cruel joke. I just don't know or even understand. Yet, I'll put on a tough face whenever this happens and say "pfft, whatever..." but it still hurts every time.

Having to navigate through life like this is so very frustrating.

Now then. Can anyone relate to any of this and maybe share some much needed armchair counseling?

Who gives a shit? You can't please everyone. Don't get hung up on things like that.

But at the same time, maybe have some self-reflection -- are you socially awkward or something? Or is the problem with the other people? After all, there can be some weird people on forums.
>> No. 31691 [Edit]
>>31684
Well you made two faux pas in your post here. People don't like "reaction images" from that other imageboard, and the material of this post is more suited for /so/ than /ot/.

You're also demonstrating that you have a somewhat self-absorbed worldview (which is nothing new for tohno-chan but still): you believe that everyone should like you.

Honestly though, you probably just rub people the wrong way. Maybe your "amiable" personality comes off as a facade; I know people like that. You can tell when someone is genuinely being kind, and when they're putting on an act to ingratiate themselves with you. I'm not fond of such behavior myself. It seems like you do that a lot - By trying to find "common ground" with people, you probably distance them even more because you seem disingenuous.

Some also dislike outsiders by nature, not everyone is welcoming, which can't be helped.

This isn't really criticism, though it might come across that way. I don't know you. This is all inferred from a single post on an imageboard. I could be wrong, I don't have all the information.

Even on the internet (especially in this day and age where so much of our social interaction is done through it) being treated poorly by others is painful. We all have our methods to handle the immense pain of co-existing with others. You'll be okay, just try to understand that not everyone has to like you simply because you aren't an asshole.

I think you're being too harsh. OP doesn't seem that bad. But the fact of the matter is that you can't please everyone. There's no point in trying.

A lot of people talk about visiting Japan, but if you had the option to full on move there, would you do it?
7 posts omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 31682 [Edit]
I see two benefits to moving to Japan. Firstly, because of my continual exposure of it through media, Japan makes me feel comfortable. Secondly, I can fully cut myself off from my family. Once I have enough money, I'm going to move out and never talk to my family again. I'm not obligated to stay anywhere, so I might as well live in Japan. I'm already learning Japanese because of hentai and I'm already in Asia, so moving to Japan won't be a big culture shock.
>> No. 31683 [Edit]
I do consider moving to Japan in a few years.
The main problem is that Japan isn't very immigrant friendly. To move there you basically need to find a job before you go there or marry a Japanese woman.
They only want people that pay taxes.

But learning Japanese is a good first step.
>> No. 31686 [Edit]
Serious question, is it really that you like Japan that much, or is it more that you just dislike your current living situation and you want to escape?
>> No. 31688 [Edit]
>>31686
It's both. I do not like my current living situation, and I want to escape. When that time comes, it'll be when I have enough to move where I want. Since I can move anywhere, I might as well pick the country that I feel the most comfortable.

Yup, but I do find myself struggling to keep up with currently airing stuff more and more each season. At the time of posting this I still haven't started a single anime from the current season and while I did get in 3ep today I'm still very behind on most of the shows I have picked up.

I can't imagine stopping, there's so many series I want to see. The amount I watch varies because of other hobbies, but I do really love it.

I still watch anime, but much less than when I first got into it. I still love anime, but I'm not reliant on it for happiness anymore. Now, it's just a thing I like. Also, I mainly watch slice of life now, and it's hard for me to digest more than a couple episodes of SoL at a time despite liking it a lot.

I learnt the difference between noir and neo-noir.

Noir was heavily dependent on the era it was released in. It was a time when overt sex and violence was forbidden in film and technological limitations prevented the presence of colour however it was these very restrictions that caused noir to have the impact that it did. With those restrictions lifted, violence and sex have to be much more overt to have the same emotional impact on today's desensitised audience than what was necessary for the audiences of the '40s.

Neo-noir is an attempt to create the same impact that noir did despite the technological and cultural changes that have occurred since the '40s. Some believe that noir to be an inimitable cultural phenomenon that will only ever exist within the bubble of time that was present during its creation. Others have continued to experiment with the neo-noir genre and prove otherwise.

Personally, after watching Chinatown, I can safely say that I don't get it. I'll probably need to watch it again to get it though. Preferably with subs since I seemed to have missed most of the dialogue.

Yesterday I learned that x64 Windows has only one HAL.DLL, because the x86_64 is so standardized that there's little configuring OEMs can do. x86 versions of Windows have a few HAL.DLLs for the inclusion or absence of stuff like APIC.

Today I learned there are 100% Animal Crossing speedruns. They average for 70 hours but the world record is 63 hours. And the runners don't take breaks.

It used to be that if you google 241543903 you get images of people sticking their heads in a freezer. Now googling 241543903 brings up images instructing people to google 241543903 to see images of people's heads in freezers.

I finally found something that explains in laymens terms why we consider time the 4th dimension, what a dimension really is, and what the dimensions 0-10 are. A dimension is really a way of measuring the location of something along a certain axis of displacement.

I don't hide the weeb stuff (my family knows what I am) but I do clean up. I don't want them to see anything near how messy and filthy it usually is because I was extremely tidy when I lived at home. Now my apartment looks like one of those news reports about hikkis.

No, I don't hide it, and I don't like it when people hide it. Everyone is allowed to show what they like, so why should it be any different to us? As the guy above me said though, I do clean my room when someone is going to visit, because it's usually very messy.

I was playing overwatch on voice chat and someone started calling everyone over where he was to look at something. There's nothing there but on his end apparently two characters clipped into each other and froze mid air or something so I'm watching this guy freaking out at nothing and expecting a reaction from the rest of the team until we tell him we can't see it. We move on but the concept sticks with me. Has there ever been a virtual reality story that's had literal physical differences in how different players will view reality? You're playing the same game but are you really? In online play you always see it in these little things like how people will only see certain bushes if they have their graphic settings high enough. If an online game is your whole world though it'd be fucking your perception of the world. A dead team mate could be floating by you, only by you and people would think you're crazy. You might be the only one who can't see a sunset your party is in awe of. Even though I kind of hate dystopian cyber stories I like this idea that in the future resources like good food and shelter are cheap enough that all their money is spent on getting the highest tier computer because mmo's are blowing up and that's where you see the economic difference between people. There's not some enforced hierarchy between the rich and poor. There's no longer a strong IRL difference between classes but they literally see different worlds. People build communities around what they specifically see or don't see and that creates a culture divide out of superiority and salt.
What are some game mechanics that still haven't been touched on in fiction?
>> No. 31632 [Edit]
it's not a VR game but dead space 3's co-op mode worked like that, showing player one things player two couldn't see and vice versa. I remember it was one of the very few things people universally liked about that game

Focusing on getting a dream job is pointless. Just start working now, whatever works, focus on jobs that will let you slack a bit even if you get paid a bit less. Minimum wage is high in many places now anyway. Live a lifestyle with as little expenses as possible, save all you can. Maybe in a few years after you've saved a decent amount you can buy a small house in a rural area (real cheap, buy in full), and cut back working after that for a while or go part time. That way you're never busting your ass at a shitty job, and you'll have something to work towards. That's what I hope works out in my case at least. I can very much relate to those thoughts and would certainly do the same myself if I could. Never is pleasant being and living around so many people, a life of peace quiet solitude is the only thing I want.

I mentioned in >>31616 that I already have a shitty minimum wage job that pays 14hr. I fucking hate it, I'd rather die than live this lifestyle of the terrible 9-5 grind.

Part time however, that's actually not a bad idea. I can live with such a thing if the hours aren't unbearably long like a full time position just in case my plans don't work out.
>> No. 31633 [Edit]
Yes but also in general.
It's not so much the waste of time but the lack of willpower that makes me not fulfill my personal and given goals.
