Have you gone outside lately? Did something terrible happen? Post it here so the rest of us can learn to avoid similar situations or just to remind people not to go out. No photos please.

Yesterday I went out and numerous strangers attempted to make eye contact with me as I walked down the sidewalk. It was awful, I knew that if I acknowledged their existence there was a risk of further interaction, so I deftly avoided it by looking at other things.

Asuka. I really, really didn't like her on the first viewing of NGE, but when watching EoE I realized that I empathized with her a lot. I guess I developed a feeling of connection to her that I felt with no other character, not even Shinji.

It is said that people you hate generally have traits that you yourself have and subconsciously dislike/deny, thereby hating them is a defence-mechanism to protect your ego.
>> No. 30593 [Edit]
As I was walking down the street, I passed a group of people, one of whom asked me if I "smoke weed fam". Being talked to by a stranger is bad enough already! I said "n-no thanks" and continued on. This is sadly quite a common occurrence where I live. I hope this post isn't against the rules, sorry if it is.

That is often said. By idiots who like to think that even those who hate them are secretly on their side.

Art is very powerful. You should try to create, even just as an outlet.

I have a lot of thoughts on the subject but I'll leave it at this: I believe that some form of the meaning we simultaneously created and were torn away from through our birth exists in art, in your own self-expression. Even if it's just for your own consumption, it's still cathartic and liberating. "Music is everything. God himself is nothing more than an acoustic hallucination." - Emil Cioran

I find fulfillment through that mainly. It's one of very few things I don't regard as tedious or depressing.

It's my treasure and a reason for tomorrow to happen.

Finals this, finals that...
Is it just me or does it seem like every person on the internet is attending classes in some form or another? Do people destroy their computers when they finish school or do they just attend schools for all eternity? It feels rare to meet people online who work regular jobs and who don't still have homework to do on the side, or who are truly NEET for that matter.

I have written philosophy and posted it here before, but my degree is in Experimental Psychology.

I won't lie, higher education can do wonders for your intellect so long as you escape the whole liberal hivemind that tends to predominate in academia (although it wasn't so terrible when I went and I was in the American South at the time, so that makes sense that it would be more tolerable). Still, no job and no sense of real purpose. Then again, what is a real purpose? And we all know that even a high-paying job usually brings misery.

Maybe I dodged a bullet. I like to think that I'm better off, although I may not be.

i'm a mentally ill neet with no hope of ever getting a job. i don't mind though. i don't mind dying alone. but i do wonder where all other neets went. feels like i'm the only neet left on the internet. it's pretty lonely

I'm here. I think most NEETs don't blogpost much because, well, what is there to talk about outside of our hobbies? The lifestyle is the same routine year in and year out for most I'd assume.
>> No. 30620 [Edit]
It's been years since I left school and I work a regular job. "Adults" rarely mention anything about their jobs because it's even more uneventful and boring than school. There's nothing to blog about.

Kind of. Sex in anime and stuff is hot, and making offspring through labs or artificial creation is cool, but 3D bodies are completely removed in my mind form what those are. 3DPD sex and reproduction are absolutely disgusting.

After seeing the immense popularity of the what bugs you thread, I decided that I would make a thread for people to post all the awesome things (big or little) in life that simply make you happy. I understand Tohno-Chan has a lot of gripes and resentments, but we cant all be negative all the time. After all, what is negativity if we have nothing to compare it too?

I feel very uncomfortable when I'm dirty. I shower every day, trim facial hair regularly, brush teeth, clean ears, fresh clothes every day all that shit and I still stink. For some reason I can smell my weird fucking genitals all the time. I don't get it.
Haven't slept a long time and for some reason this cracks me up but really it's pretty disgusting and annoying, I don't know what to do anymore.

Is it possible you're showering "wrong"? Alternatively, why not go to a doctor about it? You might have a fungal infection, which usually showering doesn't delete.
>> No. 30523 [Edit]
I barely even shower. Maybe once every two weeks at most.

Tonight or tomorrow night will probably be the last night this summer that I get to watch anime outside on my roof at night. There is something special to me about watching Japanese cartoons at night with the stars overhead and my garden surrounding me. I see meteors, satellites, bats, moths and occasionally owls flying around up there pretty regularly. A couple weeks ago I was watching Aho Girl around midnight and a pair of red tailed hawks flew by circling each other yelling and generally mixing it up a lot more than Wikipedia would probably say that diurnal animals do on the average night.
Next May or June I will watch more anime on my rooftop.

They say you learn something new every day. Let's see if that statement is true!

ITT post something new you learned today. Trivia knowledge is more than welcome.

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.

For years I've had the idea of making youtube videos, primary anime reviews. One of the main reasons being the slim hope I'd be able to at least make 'some' income off it as unlikely as that might be to happen. Well I finally took the plunge and went ahead with it. I wanted to at least get a few vids out before posting about it here. I should warn though that they've been pretty horrible so far and as such you shouldn't expect much. Should come as no surprise that someone who has very little interaction with people offline would have trouble speaking so the videos can be a little numbly, for that I apologize.

My channel can be found here for anyone curious.

That's true, also probably have to buy an expensive binural mic and make sure your background noise is very quiet. Perhaps it would be better to go after the 'unintentional asmr' niche of things that weren't originally intended to give tingles or that's not the main goal, but it still does. If you pretend like you aren't doing asmr on purpose, but make your videos relaxing, long form and about interesting topics people will tune in. Think Bob Ross for example, even though the focus is on painting, really you tune in for Bob Ross and his relaxing voice and general atmosphere. You could be the otaku Bob ross

I recently learned japanese and have been checking 2chan out lately. I have no reference to what it was previously but it feels more like what 4chan used to be with its own unique twist of course. I think it's the western culture and concepts of "memes", "shitposting" and more recently template posting that negatively affected the western internet in general.
