How often do you bathe, /ot/? What about shaving? Do you fit into the stereotype that suggests NEETs and hikikomori have poor personal hygiene?

Twice a week, if I have to go out. Otherwise, once a week or a copule of weeks.

I don not shave, but trim my beard short.

I guess I'm somewhat of a grunge/hobo type.
>> No. 29835 [Edit]
I found rubbing some after-shave on places that get too dirty, like behind the ears, helps a lot.
Guessing any alcohol will do.
>> No. 29836 [Edit]
I shower every day and feel like filth on the occasions that I fail to.
I never bathe though; sitting in the same water as your anus and the very slime you're trying to get off seems counterintuitive to me.
I try to shave every day but it's easy to forget. I trim down my body hair every couple months.

I would like to use this opportunity to express my fascination with OP pic. Gosh that pictures sure is nice, isn't it?

http://www.stargazedcharts.com seems to be officially offline permanently, whois says the domain name expired in November.

I am posting this thread as a place for people to appreciate and remember Stargazed and any other formerly available internet resources which they might miss. After the initial excitement of the start of a new anime season, usually the next big event of the season was the release of the MK I version of next season's chart and the anticipation that came along with it. That was the way that it was for quite a while, so big thanks to Stargazed, they gave western anime fans some really nice service for many years. I hope that my adblocking habits aren't part of what drove them out of the game.

I've decided to translate Jewelpet Sunshine in order to challenge myself, because my Japanese is terrible.

I'm not sure if I understood a couple parts correctly though. Can someone check this for me please? This is the OP. https://youtu.be/dWq8Kk7OG-4


Go! Go! Sunshine! Glittering!
Lucky sunshine!
The message of the magic of love connects our beating hearts.
These feelings can’t be stopped, so just accept them!
Full of energy from the moment I wake,
I call out to you but there’s no reaction.
It’s ok!
I keep my head up and stay smiling!
I’m hiding the vibrations of my heart, but it looks like they’ll burst through!
Oh yeah!

Mostly seems fine to me. The only point I'd make is with the line "恋の魔法かけたメッセージ", which you translated as "The message of the magic of love connects our beating hearts". 魔法(を)かける (as in 掛ける) is a set phrase meaning to cast magic, whereas it looks like you were reading it as 架ける, maybe? I'm not really sure where you got "connect" from. But yeah, other than that, it seems like a decent translation.

Post more on /日本/, it's lonely.

that's a loose definition of collectible. i'm sure 20 years from now people will care more about those hideous figures than anyone's toenail clippings.

anything can be collectible, but a select few things have 'value'. toenails? no value.

value is where the questionability of the figures comes into play, they're just ugly to me.

You may wanna visit the world trade center while you still have the chance. Also, get a good PC and mine the shit out of bitcoin once it becomes available. Oh and if you can try to invest in apple products, their cordless phones are gonna become really really popular (don't ask me why, hell if I know). You'll thank me latter.

niggertits started as a place for people to share porn without risking $10 on every post. students like yourself are the most inherently boring and garrulous people on the internet, its a horrid combination of characteristics, mixing in the by-definition lack of education only makes it worse. almost everything you've read on ED or kym or twitter are comical lies made up by people who would rather not share the truth.
please stop making posts on the internet outside 4chumps

>mixing in the by-definition lack of education only makes it worse.
students are some of the most boring people on the internet. They have little of interest to say because their entire lives revolve around studying and they don't do much else. No one gives a shit if you're stressed over finals or your teacher is an asshole, we've heard it a million times before.

That's not true! They also get shitfaced, have sex with other shitfaced students, and play 'armchair politician' on shitty social media websites (even if every one of them has the *exact same* regurgitated political views).
>> No. 29750 [Edit]
>>29748
You forgot "armchair psychologist" as well.

But anyway; nothing wrong with studying per se. And we are all generalizing.

i'm a fan of the more conservative/'sukeban' style. off the top of my head i can only think of saeko from hotd as an example of this but there are more.

i prefer the dark blue ones though.

there's just something about them, especially with leggings. leggings are a must.

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

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.

A little late I know, but I am doing fine now, other than depression and anxiety which can happen at random.

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).

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?
sorry if this is bad

>>29679
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).
