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.

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

-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.

Wow! So much candy! And books too! Thank you Secret Santa!
And a mystery gift from a mystery santa! Thank you so much, mystery santa. I don't know who you are but I appreciate it very much. Long have I lurked and wanted to participate in a secret santa with everyone but I was too shy to ask. I lurked since early in the life of Tohno-chan. I am very happy that I asked this year, I hope that there will be one next year too! Thank you, I had a lot of fun and I hope everyone did too! This was an amazing gift!

I found a $100 bill on the ground today and I don't know what I should buy with it. If it helps I have no interests because everything sucks and 2D are just as slutty as 3D, nobody agrees because nobody looks past the surface.and if your disagree you're wrong and you can take it to /tat/ instead.
What should I do with these $100?

Wow, free pizza for the precinct.

Literally the stupidest thing you can do with loose money without any sort of identifying container or specific denominations is turn it in to the police/ guest services/ security, because nobody can return claimed money since any old idiot can say "uhhhhh I lost money"

If it isn't in a wallet, money clip, or envelope, just pocket it, whoever you turn it into will just use it to buy food or some shit anyway.

>I feel that the idealism of animation and drawings doesn't have to be lost just because it's seen through VR goggles
I agree. I've tested VR using phone based headsets and found that if it just covers your entire field of view it's good enough. A sense of depth is nice and does indeed add to the experience but is not completely necessary.
Besides that I've discovered there are already a few applications that will simulate an empty movie theater with your content on the screen. I tried watching an ep of yuruyuri like that, it was neat but gave me a bit of a headache half way in.

I feel lucky that I get to listen to the majesty of voice roids, especially Yuzuki Yukarin. Yukari's voice heals me and I like to listen to it when I'm sleepy. I also feel happy to be able to listen to yukkuris play games, they're so cute and funny.

incredibly cute works of art are a modern miracle
there has never been an age of artistic realization like this before, its a massive paradigm change from the "wonders of the ancient world" monstrosities that humanity used to be impressed by. in 20 years people will walk past burj dubai and whisper "gross its too big" to their cute little sister

You see it too?
Just like the Italian Renaissance is defined by works of art, so is now the Japanese Renaissance.
The people of the Italian Renaissance did not think at the time 'we are in the Renaissance', so it is today that we are experiencing a certain culture of art.
Sure, there may be fault-finders, but I'm sure the Italian Renassance had those who viewed their 'trendy art' of the time as distasteful.

Japanese anime art will no doubt be a permenant feature in tomorrow's history books.
