I'd like to start another dream thread, if that's all right. I'll go first.
You know how when you're a fan of something like anime or scifi or similar things in your teenage years parents will try to buy stuff for you? My dad and stepmom bought anime\manga related shit at yard sales a lot. Sometimes it was good, sometimes it was off the mark.
Well, in my dream I'm still in high school. I'm sitting there playing Xbox when my dad & stepmom walk in and yell that they got me something at a yard sale. I'm think to myself, "well, probably shit, but I might as well see," and go to check it out.
I walk into the kitchen and on the table is a box full of stuff from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
I get more excited and go to see what it is. There's every episode in raws and fansubs on
VHS, some uniforms, figurines, and even Shinjis' fucking tape recorder with the tape he listens to inside it! All the merchandise seems to be older and seems like it was directly imported from Japan. I ask where they found it.
It cuts to a yard sale with a slightly sad fiftyish woman in her front yard. She talked about how her son loved this show and whatnot, and seemed very sad. She sold it all for about 10-20 dollars.
I take all the stuff out and find a suicide note. Her son had gotten into anime in the
eighties while in high school and was completely inept and friendless. He grew obsessed with
Evangelion and felt a strong kinship with Shinji because he was such a fuck up. He grew older
and couldn't find anyone to share his interests with, became more and more of a recluse, and
killed himself in the late nineties, which I recall being a shame since the internet as of
96, when he killed himself, could have given him a place to talk to others and feel less alone. I realized he was "an otaku of another generation." I hung up his note and saluted it. I then went to watch his tapes and realized that he had dubbed it himself in case he ever met anyone who wanted to share his joy. I inherited his legacy. His mother had cleaned house and ended up giving me a record of a hikkikomori life.

think it could work? because a day later i dreamed about being invited to a party in an abandoned mall in a nuked part of town (recurring theme), turns out that the party was organized by the fake 2D and her cult, the party was supposedly "for peace" but it was a plan to trick me into joining the cult or the guests would die along with some acquaintances they held hostage (maybe they considered me a useful tool), i smugly refused and they got berserk angry and began attacking me, i ran down the stairs and knocked down a bag that was hanging by a rope full of replica medieval weapons and armor, i quickly picked up a sword and began slashing, i chopped like 5 cultist in half in 2 or 3 swings, unfortunately they grabbed some of the weapons as well and began chasing me around the mall while i clumsily tried to put on armor, i don't remember much after that but i vaguely remember a toy/clown dimension bleeding into our reality and everything being consumed in the white void again.

what are some things that really bug you?
things that genuinely piss you off?

I thought it would be nice to have a thread to vent about any little annoyance, no mater how big or small.
Any and all complains about the world around you are welcome here!

Any form of group project. I can't imagine a system more carefully designed precisely to target those who abhor any form of social interaction. And as my luck has it, I'm always left with a group that does jack shit while professors tell you to suck it up and work it out yourselves.

It's hard to believe there are functioning people who don't respond to emails, can never manage to meet on time, etc., yet still managed to get into uni. And then you have the wildcards, people whose behavior leaves you stunned. This time I'm lopped in with an EE PhD from China who brazenly proclaims himself to be a member of the Chinese Communist Party and couldn't be a better archetype of a student spy.

This is the teeth-kicker. I don't understand people who go to school but act indifferent and aren't motivated--especially if you're paying for it. The best part is when one group member does close-to-nothing, and you tell the professor that she doesn't deserve credit.

I hate the consumerist aspect of Christmas, but the idea of a day to celebrate charity, kindness, and goodwill is appealing to me. Likewise, I like the concept of Thanksgiving being a day to express gratitude and reflect on the things we are thankful for, but people just eat a huge turkey dinner and go buy half-priced garbage the very next day. In general, I think it is very regrettable that normalfags typically prefer celebrating days like these by purchasing cheap garbage, eating excessively extravagant meals, or selfishly enjoying the receipt of things from others.

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?

Sure. About two thirds of us are overweight, across all of Europe. What I meant was not that Italians are unusually fat, just that they're also as fat as us.

The differences between 'national diets' aren't that big anymore. We all stuff our gobs with the same shit. Same 'imported' internationally popular dishes, fast food, sweets, snacks, soda, beer. Local cuisine got overtaken by the global favourites.
But I think even before globalization food in most regions was based mainly on cereal and starchy vegetables. That's what agriculture was always focused on, probably everywhere. But today barely anyone gets enough daily activity to eat all of that high energy food and not get fat.

Could be the only thing Europe is united in is obesity. We grow fat together, that should be our motto.

I don't know how we compare to the USA.

>>33091
Carry on then. Personally I can't tell the difference.

>I'll never understand this anxiety, I just ignore people when I don't want to talk with them.
It has more to do with their mere presence than [potential] conversation.

A fear of other human beings is probably nigh-impossible to imagine if you don't have it, but that also applies to virtually every phobia, along with certain elements of other neurological disorders (for example, the fact that many people on the autism spectrum are completely unable to perceive sarcasm, irony, and metaphors).

The tiger only has three methods of killing men, a crouch, a leap, and a blow with its tail. If these three fail the tiger at once loses all courage and spirit. In such cases it always turns around, and gives a loud roar.

Let's talk about every terrible thing Netflix has done. Purely as a service, it's a mediocre, roundabout way of getting access to shows. There's some committee of people deciding what gets hosted and what doesn't, which is almost entirely decided by market demand rather than quality. Good movies get booted to make room for cape shit. You also have to wait a year longer to watch new seasons of shows that already aired, even if the season is being hosted in another country. The monthly rate for streaming has gone up over the years. Streaming as a paid service is also ridiculous because if you're paying money for data, you should have unlimited access to that data.

With that out-of-the-way, the more important issue is with Netflix's goal of controlling the anime industry, at least in the west(for the time being). Buying up streaming rights is one thing, but from a cultural standpoint, they want control too. They make live action adaptations and new dubs with changed translations to control the image of these shows. They get exclusive streaming rights to new shows while they're in production, which means they will definitely get some level of creative control, which inevitably means censorship and ideological injection. This kind of things actually is a slippery slope. People who cheer and get excited when they announce the next show they'll butcher are so naive I can't believe it. I'm dreading their Ghost in Shell reboot.

I hate how they have some things on there purely to make sure that other services don't, then bury them. I liked the anime AICO: Incarnation that they claimed the rights to. What they did was dump it all out at once, which hurt its chances to have any sort of discussion on any anime sites, and ruined the fun of wondering what would happen week to week. It clearly wasn't meant to be put out that way either. They also either really insist on or outright force you to skip OPs and EDs.
God, it's just the worst. I don't think there's any worse way to treat anime than like this. Either they have no idea how anime fans enjoy watching a series, or they know and want to stamp that out.

I think that Netflix is trying to be as different as possible to TV. Hence no weekly eps. Although weekly eps work better if your subscription is based on time.

I do digital marketing. Mostly prototyping websites, online campaigns, copywriting and graphic design, analyzing analytics, and maintaining the manager and clients updated.
It's a rather cozy job. My company is the type that lets employees be as long as objectives are being met. Coworkers are respectful too. Either way, I promised to myself that I would never complain about an office job once I finally had the opportunity to quit my previous factory job.
College here is not a life indebtment as it is in the US, nor as intensive, so it was a good call.

>College here is not a life indebtment as it is in the US, nor as intensive, so it was a good call.
It's overly expensive, but it's not as bad as many make it out to be. Scholarships are easy to get, and many companies will offer some reimbursement for entry level (or otherwise) employees who choose to go to college. There's also the common route of going to a junior college and then transferring to a four year school to save a good amount of money.
Further, any figure shown that's used as an example of large college debt is typically deceptive. One tactic is to use the average instead of the median; thus, large debt accrued from, say, aspiring doctors (Who will easily be able to pay it back.) and students who make bad financial decisions (Because they're foolish.) will pull the average number upward.
Generally, if you're determined and are at least of average intelligence, getting a degree that's in demand (or will be) will result in an income that'll make the initial investment (debt) rather trivial.
>> No. 33587 [Edit]
>>33585
By far the majority of woe over the seeming "debt crisis" in the US seems to be from people who thought that taking out money to spend 4 years studying art history or the like was a good investment.
