If anime has thought me anything it's that teru teru bozu aren't all that effective. According to anime a much more reliable strategy is to find someone who's sad and cheer them up.

You probably need a 2D one since 3D anything is never as good as 2D. Probably also needs to be made by a 2D loli at that for full potency.

whats the best country to move to if you just want to live off welfare and lurk the internet?
>> No. 29623 [Edit]
None, considering in most, if not all, of these countries, you need to have nationality to apply for NEETbux. The alternative is to go to Germany, Netherlands, Belgium or Sweden, burn your passport and then claim you're a refugee or something equally stupid.

I had a recurring fantasy of going to North Korea to seek asylum from the trappings of life in the west. Of course, they would probably either always suspect me or execute me on the spot, and North Korea has it's own problems. Why would they support me? They don't even feed their own citizens. Still, it's nice to think about before bed.

Argentina. Say you are paraguayan or bolivian and you'll have right to get citizenship and wellfare.

Fact is, sleep takes up a large fraction of anyone's life. Have a comfortable bed & a large fraction of your life is excellent.
Please tell me ways to improve the quality & volume of my sleeping.

Where have you being buying your mattresses? I think you have been severely ripped off. I got a 10-inch-hight memory foam mattress for like €800 a couple of years ago and it's still perfect (and can be flipped over but I didn't have to so far. I've been gaining weight like crazy, to the point I'd consider myself morbidly obese now... and still no issues.

I think part of the issue is that i spend an abnormal amount of time in my bed. Whenever I'm watching anime or tv or something I do it while laying down in bed, and a lot of time i browse the internet from my bed as well.
>> No. 29524 [Edit]
I've been sleeping on the floor for about a year now.

At first it was because my family got a bad case of bedbugs and we didn't have the money to buy a new mattress.

I started to like it so I never got a new one. It's actually not that bad. Tried to find some actual research on it but just came up with advertisements and bro-science.

I found a few things claiming mattresses are actually bad for you because they slowly wear your back down. Seems like it might be bullshit but i lines up with my experience so I've rolled with it.

Another great sleep aid is a program called f.lux. Takes a while to get used to but makes you want to go to bed at a reasonable hour.

Buy goose down, some plain white bed or simple sheets, and a cheap sewing machine. If you can figure it out, this is the ultimate in comfy.

I saw a very long Japanese drama film about a month ago, I disliked it so much I don't remember the name. Relatively recently I watched the 1962 Lolita movie, it wasn't really particularly great, I remember the more it went on the less it made sense and the more confused I got. Someday I will watch the 90s remake, but meh. I also saw A Clockwork Orange, which I liked.

Last movie I saw was Inside Out. I found it very 'okay'. Only saw it because it was brought up a few times among movie review channels I follow. Right from the get go I couldn't help but wonder what the movie would be like if the mc came from a dysfunctional family, rather than being a marry sue with first world problems. still, it was entertaining enough for a kids movie I guess.

Before that I finally got around to seeing ant-man, and found it pretty enjoyable. Story was a bit paint by numbers but they had some really neat and creative action scenes.

Is it just me or do the MCU movies feel less like 'movies' and more like big budget tv episodes of a long running series?

Two Japanese films I've seen are 'Goemon' and 'Dai Nipponjin'.

'Goemon' is a fun and well-done film to watch, background is Goemon is Japanese Robin Hood.
'Dai Nipponjin' is interesting, what I took from it is it's a film about the degradation Capitalism and the post-war period has done to Japan and the Japanese people. In particular, making them weak and greedy.

Its an unfortunate phenomenon, but people from lesser nations are often jealous of Americans. These are the types of people who buy in to nationalism, they mistakenly connect their own identities to the neurotypicals who actually run the show and they feel the need to take out their anger at their own smallness and insignificance and blame all their problems on others. So instead of trying to build themselves up in to what they really want (a nation better than America) they cloud their thought processes with anger and stay small and insignificant.
This guy was trying to discuss his favorite domestic TV shows, but all he could get out was "I hate America", his shame at his own weakness pollutes his brain so much that he has difficulty communicating effectively.

I used to watch 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'.
It doesn't show on TV in my country much and I can't be bothered finding a place to stream Western TV so I dropped it.
Good stuff though.

Look at all this entertainment I have! The first week or two of every anime season are great, even if you drop most of the shows you check out, they still deliver that 22 minutes of first episode to amuse you.
What other periods of time are regularly worthwhile?

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.
>> No. 29518 [Edit]
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.

Should governments make laws to protect people from hurting themselves?

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?
>> No. 29493 [Edit]
>>29488
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.
>> No. 29706 [Edit]
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.
