That board had the most trouble with spam, so figured it'd be good to leave it there at least.

I found a pornographic dvd in one of my PS2s that I didn't use anymore, I think it might have been left there by someone who broke into our home a couple months before I discovered it.

Is human nature constant or is it molded by culture? Can human nature be completely changed by culture or society?

Assuming you're asking about the "nature vs nurture" argument, the general consensus right now in humans seems to be that roughly 70% of your personality and character is determined by your nature and genetics, and the remaining 30% is determined by your environment and external stimuli.

I actually have a couple bags of sand, if anyone wants to know what they feel like. I went to the beach & brought home some sand (i like to keep it around just in case any of my potted plants get fungus gnats) and i realized I could make bags of sand pretty easily so I did. I image this is what anime girl's tits feel like, yes?

Yeah pretty much. Although I imagine it'd be very heavy. water wouldn't stay warm for long also. Probably best to stick with air.

How do I stop fapping so much?
I spend too much time sitting in front of the monitor and then it just happens
I don't think this is healthy, I need to stop
>> No. 29222 [Edit]
By exercising the willpower not to touch your penis. Get up and make a cup of tea when the urge arises and make sure to drink it standing in the kitchen instead of bringing it back to your computer desk. You can read a book in the meantime, too. Or maybe go for a walk. The main thing is that you stand up and get away from your computer for a bit.
>> No. 29223 [Edit]
It shouldn't be unhealthy, as long as it doesn't hurt.
>> No. 29224 [Edit]
The only thing bad that will happen from constant masturbation is you will become very unsensitized. If you already are then the solution is to simply masturbate less(as little as you can) and switch to onaholes only. A real vagina works too.

>How do I stop fapping so much?

quantify yourself
i bet you're below average on this site
anyway masturbation is good for you. does it feel good? yes, so do it as often as possible.
if you answered no then you're doing it wrong.

How do I become an Otaku? I've liked anime and manga forever but "otaku" stuff has eluded me forever. I've been aware of these things but I've always associated them with a layer of the internet where everyone is aware of what's going on except for me.

I have no idea where to go to learn about otaku stuff except imageboards, because everything is always in japanese. Anime is easy and I've always watched it, but I've never pierced (successfully) past that layer where I could just go and download an anime after reading about it on wikipedia or MAL.

"Franchises" in particular, things that aren't actually based off an anime (the other way around often) are very difficult for me to "get". Stuff like Touhou or [email protected] and stuff like that.

Every time I see someone post something "otaku" that isn't anime and instantly recognizable I feel like I'm missing out on something everyone else "gets".

So where do I go? Niconico or something? Everytime I see a post about J-Pop or something like that everyone seems to know what every group is and every member's name etc. If I try getting into something like that often enough I'm just presented with a PV with the artist's name and song title in block letters and everything else in nip scribble.

It's a world of figurines and body pillows and light novels and stuff, MMD's and MADs and all sorts of music and I feel like, for someone who has been browsing imageboards as long as I have, to be missing out and not being "in".

I don't know about or have ever associated with otaku stuff outside of imageboards but everytime I see an otaku person or someone posts a picture of a touhou or something I'm left completely lost as to why every otaku seems to know everything there is to know about otaku stuff but I'm left completely lost as to how they learned these things and got into them.

Too late buddy. I'm already a "otaku" in the legitimate sense i.e. social anxiety, never go outside, everything thinks I'm a drug addict/potential shooter, never even held hands with a girl, browse wizardchan etc etc

This is just the icing on the cake, don't get me wrong. I've already learned half the hiragana since I started on Monday, only practicing during my breaks at work, or when I go to take a piss I'll take 5 minutes to practice etc. I work 10 hours a day Monday-Saturday so I'll get a big chunk done on Sunday and be finished sometime next week. After that comes katakana and that shouldn't be hard because a bunch look the same.

This isn't nearly as hard as people make it out to be. Sa is the smiley face with 1 slash, Ki is the smiley face with 2 slashes, Ku is just a greater than sign, Su has a loop-de-loop

Once I can speak glorious nihongo then I'll really be able to swing my dick around these normies

You aren't an "otaku" at all because none of those things make you an otaku. In reality, you're the only normalfag here because of your desperation to prove that you're not like them and your desperation in having something that makes you different.
Of course you browse Retardchan. You know what you are? You're a failed normalfag. You bring up that you've "never held hands with a girl" and such. You don't belong here at all. Fuck off and go back there.

The most important step in being an otaku is learning how to be alone & be yourself.
>> No. 29215 [Edit]
"Otaku" isn't really something you try to become, it's more of a murky swamp that you just sort of gradually sink into if you have the right type of personality. Before you know it you realize that you're in so deep you might as well get comfortable. Anyway I think I roughly understand what you're trying to ask so here is my personal experience:

Around 2003 or so I kind of got hooked watching the anime that Cartoon Network would run at night (Inuyasha, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, etc), and got interested enough in a couple of shows to start collecting them on DVD. When I started college the following year I saw a flier for a school anime club so I started going to that. Most of the people there knew a lot more about anime than I did and had been into it longer so I felt kind of out of place. However I got to be friends with some of the people in the club and I just kind of got sucked further and further into that world. In addition to the club we started going to conventions and the like, and we would frequently hang out and watch each others DVDs. I learned about 4chan from one of those guys too, and that was really the point of no return for me. Before I got into this stuff I was basically just a somewhat awkward and socially beta but still relatively normal male; I now live in a world of plastic figurines and erotic visual novels. My only close friends are the anime club friends I met in college.

Anyway, being otaku is basically like having any other interest that you're very deeply into, like being into a music genre or something. If you want to get into it just start looking into titles that sound interesting to you, learn all you can again, and go from there. One of two things will happen: either you'll find out it was just a phase, or you'll become one of us.

I'd like some nice, calm music to have as background
I really have no idea how to find new stuff though

If you could have any one supernatural ability or 'superpower' (barring omnipotence), what would you choose?

Definitely a solid choice, as long as you avoid creating any temporal paradoxes.

I'd be just as apt to choose simple invisibility too, though.
>> No. 29171 [Edit]
That is pretty good, but my choice would be to be able to venture into the Astral and Mental Realms at will, for as long as I want.

I've already thrown away so many things of hobbies that I intended to start but ended up simply trying for a week and never again. While I imagine that it would be curious to find these again, I honestly do not want to face those items of my past self. I think it would be a terrifying experience.

"What the fuck? How did you get this? Where did you get this? Why the shit are you giving me this garbage? You keep it, pawn it off to some shop you find or whatever, just get it out of my sight.

What do you think about IRC and other chat services like discord
Do you use them? I think it would be cool if I found one where I could jump in and casually talk about things like the game I'm playing right now, but so far I haven't
>> No. 29157 [Edit]
I prefer anonymous desynchronized communication because there you have no obligations. You don't need to reply if you don't want to even when you're OP, you can reply hours or days later depending on the board. Nobody knows who you are, the only things that matter are the content of the post.
In chat rooms everyone has a name and if they write more than once automatically a personality associated to them, you have to reply, preferably instantly, unless you want to leave a negative impression.

I understand why some people prefer chat communication but it's not really my preferred form of communication. I like communicating through the Internet exactly because I can avoid this type of "normal" communication.
