Do you have any recurring fantasies or daydreams?

In high school I often fantasized about talking down a school shooter, thinking up scenarios where we traded extended, edgy dialogue. Now I daydream about being a great writer, although I've barely done any creative writing.

I daydream about winning the lottery every week I buy a ticket. I know it's seen as an absolute waste of money to buy lottery since the odds of winning the grand prize is astronomical... but for €2 I get to spend a full day or two thinking (and when I go to sleep, dreaming) about living a happy life surrounded by everything I could ever possibly need or want... a life of ultimate comfy. I know it's just a fantasy, but I think €2 it's a great price to feel joyful once a week. Sure, someone will say "But anon, you can dream for free", but it's not the same, there is no way (for me at least) to fake the delusional expectation.

I used to have a lot of fantasies about being some kind of hero that would save a bunch of people. It was more like the Zelda games and Ocarina was one of my favorites, I used to self-insert and fantasize all the time before I fell asleep about being in Link's role. I would do the sidequests, go through the dungeons, interact with Navi, all that cringe-worthy garbage. When I was not playing video games those were some of the only times I ever felt important and capable. In my dream world I was somebody who could feel useful and valued, somebody who can actually do something good. I still fantasize things like that to this day but it's harder because I don't have the attention span like I used to so I get sidetracked.

Pathetic. Just pathetic.
>> No. 29534 [Edit]
I sort of did. Now, I've kind of changed it so that now I just imagine characters, the characters worlds, their abilities, and such. I sometimes come up with pretty interesting things. I probably could've made a couple of pretty decent shounen mangas and seinen manga as well.

I do forget most of it, though, since I don't really have much of a reason to keep something like that in mind despite really enjoying making those things up.

I still kind of think up situations of me punching people just to "simulate" how things would go if I were to strike there so I could follow up those situations with more strikes if I were to get into a fight. Even though I've gotten quite a bit stronger, I still have so little experience to know if it'll actually work well.

From a non-moral point of view you could say some forms of self-harm (like drug abuse) disrupt the society as a whole. A sensible law-maker would seek to limit those kinds of self-harm.

Isn't that what speed limits and necessitation of insurance laws are about?

Speed limits are also there to prevent people from crashing into you, causing property damage, or traffic jams that effect everyone. Seat belt laws on the other hand force people to protect themselves.

Not unless they are also hurting other people. Or perhaps in some sort of psychotic state.

I believe the Jewish death toll from the Holocaust was greatly exaggerated, and the truth was warped in some way. I don't claim to know exactly what happened, or that the entire thing was a "myth", but there are a lot of inconsistencies with what was reported about it.

This too. Lot's of inconsistencies, and I say this as someone whose jewsish grandparents got BTFO from Germany. I could probably sue the German government for reparations, but the paperworks is incredibly tedious.

Do you hate pizza?
2 posts omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 29402 [Edit]
I think it's impossible to "hate" Pizza, and you'd have to be an stereotypical "hater" to despise it. Precisely because of how wide the range of what constitutes a Pizza is, and how versatile its preparation can be... It's unfathomable to hate it to the point there isn't a single variation that would satisfy your culinary preferences.

You can make anything from a traditional cheese and pepperoni (salami) pizza to a eegplant with pineapple aberration.
>> No. 29451 [Edit]

I'm a bit rustled that you put pepperoni in the same class as salami. Salami is absolutely disgusting.

I love the stuff.

>>29452
It can be just about anything you want it to be. It's like >>29402 said, it comes in countless styles and can be made without any of the things you don't like on it. It's next to impossible to not be able to enjoy at least one type of pizza.

Like the title asks, what kind of clothes do you like to wear either indoors or outdoors?

I like wearing my black zip-up hoodie a lot, I've had it for years now and I feel a bit attached to it. It's worn now, it can't even zip anymore but I still wear it often because it has sentimental value to me. Another thing I like to wear is aprons, not really sure why.

What about you TC? What do you like to wear and why?

Please don't hate me.

Doc Martens, Ripped jeans, Band T-shirt, Leather jacket with patches... A walking stereotype. Basically a "Hey normies, look at me! I'm dressing like you!. Which is fine and all... but doesn't change the fact is an imposed style.
>> No. 29358 [Edit]
I have like 10 "charcoal" t-shirts, very dark gray but not quite black. 3 long sleeved versions, and then a few other t-shirts. The only logo'd ones have software projects or incredibly obscure internet culture stuff on them, nothing that screams weeby or nerd. 2 tank tops for when I go to the gym or feel like being white trash.

As far as my jackets go, I have a few surplus military coats, some plaid button ups, and a few more fashionable ones. But less is more, in my book.

Pants are mostly jeans.

Oh, and I have a monk outfit from my time in the monastery. Comfy, but not really street wear.

When I'm hangin' in my room, I usually wear basketball shorts or pyjama pants, based on the weather, with a t-shirt.

I wear the same black dickies work pants every day and ugly black walking shoes. Then I have a baseball cap and wear some sort of t-shirt, either dark colored or stripes.

>Good. Having them around leads to tone policing and ad hominems of the type you're posting now.

True that.

My answers:
- I've moved out of my parents house, but I'm in uni housing on their dime. I still live with them during breaks.
- I don't know how "friends" are defined, but it's possible 10 or more people might come who are not family.
- Went to two concerts. One was country/indie and a sit-down affair. The other was EDM but I got there late and ended up sitting in the back row alone.
- Tried weed once. I suspect the guy who gave it to me did it thinking I'd do something funny. I just ended up getting paranoid and clamming up.
- Went to at least one house party (memory fails me). Got drunk, depressed, and left halfway through.

Fun stuff.

I really don't see the point in this, especially when it's so normal in itself.
10+ friends? How about one?
Get compliments regularly? Who are you interacting with to receive them?
Go out on most weekends? How about going out at all?

I'm working with the assumption that team sports and parties organized by my mom when I was prepubescent don't count, at which point I get 0.

It's just an easy and barely noticeable way cutting corners for practicality sake, anime/manga is full of them. It doesn't really mean they're lazy, it just means they're using their time and resources more efficiently and in creative ways. It's like animating only a characters mount when they talk rather than their whole face, panning over still frames for the illusion of animation, having background characters who are poorly drawn and don't move, putting the most care into a characters head area rather than the rest of their body which is where most people focus on then putting all the detail in the eyes for the same reason, and of course this also includes using school uniforms so you don't have to design and draw dozens of different outfits instead of variations of the same uniform.

Very realistic. After school ended, I was NEET for a year, , then my life just became centered around working. I did not do much in school, had no friends and hated school in general, but I could always count on toughing the day through then going home to browse the internet and watch anime and shit, especially when summer come.

When I was 17/18 I lost the spark of video games and anime. all star battle was released, JOJO was being animated, watamote got an anime, PS4 was out. None of it interested me. My life ended sometime around this time.

I was without internet for a good chunk of that time, so I hypothesize that I became "unaddicted" to anime and video games, and was reduced to a dead soulless husk with nothing to look forward to in this world.

My oh my, the lull of video games and anime was so sweet. Being absorbed in anime and videogames is like being on drugs. And when it's over I snap out of it and I'm crying on the bathroom floor.

when I was in middle school and early highschool, I wanted to do drugs, wanted to fuck women (or at least prostitutes) trannies, twinks, whatever. Wanted to watch all the anime in the world, play every video game, spend all my days browsing the infinite internet, spend hours combing gelbooru and paheal. Wanted to learn japanese, wanted to learn to draw manga and hentai, wanted to master guitar shredding. wanted to start a metal band, never wanted to work. wanted a full gaming PC set up, wanted a dakimakura, posters, onaholes, wanted an outcast loser tomoko gf to love, I wanted everything life had to offer.

It all just fizzled away in a moment somehow, don't know how, but now I'm here and I don't want much of nothin. It's all gone now. Maybe those were juvenile desires, maybe I got raped or something. Who knows? I did have a bad trip on shrooms at the end of this time. Don't recall it having much of an effect on me but the following months I was smacked with a series of existential crisis' and I guess I realized that none of this matters. So sad, I suppose.

They sort of make fun of the main character for wearing a suit to the job, and she's pretty much the only character who wears the same thing each ep.
Most jobs 'usually' don't have strict dress codes or uniforms unless it's an entry level/minimum wage kind of job. That's why something like Working! works for this but servant x service doesn't.
