Do you ever feel strange things from inanimate objects?

I don't like to look at my Rosalina amiibos or have them next to my computer much because I can actually feel hatred coming from them.

I've been dealing with both for some time now. Crap, this is kind of scary.

Never got anything from regular objects. Only those based on figures/creatures.
I've got a fair amount of figs and always kept the toy story concept in the back of my mind.
It can be kinda fun to imagine what they might get up to when I'm not home. I like to think they're content in how I take care of them and supply them with plenty of friends. Never got any vibes from them however, good or bad.

That's about finding beauty in the suffering of life.
So I don't think it's literal 'mono' as in stuff.

lets say /tc/ had some sort of battle royale where everyone here fought each other to the death in an argument over anime.
who do you think would win? i know i would kill at least few motherfuckers if it came to that, but then once it was safe and i was in the clear i'd lay down, play dead & wait to finish off the last guy standing once he thought he'd won and let his guard down.

Careful. Just because I'm volunteering to register the event doesn't mean I can't teleport behind everyone's back and nothingpersonel'd them all at the same time. You're on my list now. I'm still a magnanimous champion so I will execute you swiftly and painlessly.

>You could say a guy that is obsessed with western video games but hates everything Japanese... is still an otaku
Do you mean a westerner (America, Europe, Russia, etc.) or Japanese? If the former, why would anyone call him and otaku? If the latter, then it's more likely they'd call them a gamer why "otaku" would be reserved as more of an insult.

I was going by the Japanese definition of the word, like how they use lolicon for pedophile. Probably should have clarified.
>> No. 31337 [Edit]
I know a Chinese one. When it comes to their taste in weeb stuff it seems about the same as most other people from around the world. Their location grants them easier travel to japan and their cultures are similar in a lot of ways.
I've known some hispanic ones too. They almost always tend to have a deep love for saint seiya for some reason.
>> No. 31341 [Edit]
Not in person. I barely know any otaku people in person and don't really partake with them.

As for in anonymous boards, I'm a beaner myself and I don't think it ever specially stood out to anyone here over all these years, other than in my sometimes convulted wording. Also, I was often mistaken for a nord in other chans, so I don't think there's any solid criteria to pinpoint cultural backgrounds within the usual otaku board talk.

>>31337
Saint Seiya was huge on TV here when I was a kid (early 90's). I guess it's mostly nostalgia, but I could be wrong. I do treasure it too, however.

I made a tram transit map for my area.

I really should stop fetishising infrastructure I'm in the wrong place in the world to do such a thing.

The purpose of a transit map is to convey basic information on an easily replicatable, easily read format, not to give an accurate geographical representation of the area served. It holds all the pertinent information a person would need to use a transit system. It has a simple and easily read format for someone attempting to find their way around a subway system, going by their closest station and finding the closest station to their destination.

By default all maps serve a specific purpose, and every map can, does, and will omit information to that end. Imagine a history textbook about the Vietnam War that went into detail about the botanical information of the jungle, each species of plant by their genus and species name and their reproductive methods.

Any transit system worth their salt will put a detailed map of the street layout of the area within 100-500 meters of the station, but it's useless to put a station map with every street corner and building on it, as the pertinent information is lost to begin with in the rest of the noise. Someone on public transit won't need to know where Interstate 93 is, but they all will need to know the order of stops on a train.

Part of infrastructure is cost, another part is implementation. So imagine the process of production to make geographically correct maps of a transit system to be published in all sorts of forms (pamphlet, website, posters, cards, wall maps, etc). Now imagine the vast amount of wasted space that would be taken up by a map where a line has several stops per mile in high density areas but miles between spots in low density areas (as is the case with my map between two cities with two lower density towns between them). You need to print such a map large enough to not crowd the high density areas, so in short, you would have a map that only works as a large poster of abnormal proportions, or is completely unreadable in any way if you try to print it in a portable format, completely destroying the point of a transit map.

in almost every case its a far less functional use of space than it could be, people copy the old london tube style because it was on popular tshirts and shit. its far easier to copy the positively acceptable that to come up with your own style. most of the text on the graphic you produced is illegible so i can't really use is as a basis for comparison, but there is little doubt in my mind that graphic could be easily produced to represent a subway system with geographical accuracy if you were willing to sacrifice that cool combo of art deco stylized curves and bright colors.
furthermore i thought bostonians were really proud of having kicked the english out way back when, but now they're giving free publicity to the london tube tshirt salesmen? seems like an easily corrected minor mistake on their part.

It's depressing how Japanese girls who are considered tomboys are still ten times more feminine than the best western whore.

No, I meant that the illusion of non-fictional Japanese women being the epitome of femininity is nothing but marketing, even if unintentional, and that such notion would disappear quickly if someone were to actually engage with enough them to have an appropriate sample size, instead of extrapolating that idea from fictional animated series.

Ever since I was a kid I've had this tradition of beating a game on new year's night. First time I can remember doing it was with Spyro 2 on the ps1. Completed the game just after midnight (or maybe it was just before, who knows). It was a nice memory gaming there on the big fat living room ctr while my mom and friends were celebrating in another room. Now I try to time/arrange games to end on new years, or speed through a short game if I have to. Feels like a nice way to end a year and start another.

luckily it's not too cold outside at the moment, so I got back on track with my training on new year's eve, after I've been slacking off since october. Went outside and did my usual routine of pull-ups, dips, lunges and leg raises.

I beat MGS3 with no enemy alerts one new year's eve. it's a fairly short game though.

All of these options are pretty terrible, mostly since you're competing with third world agencies by working online, but i might as well list them
>transcription work
high wpm will help you but you still won't make much, will eventually be replaced by a computer.
>art freelance
Any freelance site that takes a cut / blocks interaction outside of the website (i.e. fiverr) isn't worth the effort. If you know the software well and have a bit of experience you can find desperate small jobs, of course being paid little for a lot of work, and the people are sometimes very hard to work with
>code freelancing
probably the best bet, though I haven't tried it. Knew someone who basically got paid to do some kid's programming homework. As with all freelancing jobs your advantage over the third world is your ability to english
>other
with no real skills or abilities, but with some luck or networking, you might end up managing someone's wordpress / wix website. Old people feel good paying young people small amounts to do shit they don't want. Downside is all these jobs require social interaction, but with personal jobs like this you might get someone who is at least understanding.
>be a phone rep at home
this is legit work but it's the worst shit ever. Most stressed out I've ever been.
in any case your best bet is going through family members / friends because networking will get you 10x what a forum will. but everything (except transcription) requires social interaction to a large extent

-porn of my waifu. someone just uploaded giantess fetish art of her moments ago and im trying to avoid an autistic meltdown so that's why i'm writing this, actually. (its not working im going to cry)
-people with shit taste. this is largely why i have no friends. i fucking refuse to hang out with someone with no standards. everyone i talk to, "dota 2", "shitty marvel movie", "shitty anime about talking about snacks and making squeaky noises for seven hours", "modern nintendo". no thanks. shit taste doesnt just lower my opinion of them, it actually ruins everything for me. why are no good things made anymore? because the world is full of shit eaters who are happy with garbage.
-normalfag's cruelty. it makes their dicks rock hard to make children homeless and downplay mental illness.
-retards that defend demonstrably shitty things for no reason, sometimes at their own expense ie. ignoring crime statistics, buying pitbulls just to be contrarian
