Do you hate pizza?

I think it's impossible to "hate" Pizza, and you'd have to be an stereotypical "hater" to despise it. Precisely because of how wide the range of what constitutes a Pizza is, and how versatile its preparation can be... It's unfathomable to hate it to the point there isn't a single variation that would satisfy your culinary preferences.

You can make anything from a traditional cheese and pepperoni (salami) pizza to a eegplant with pineapple aberration.
>> No. 29451 [Edit]

I'm a bit rustled that you put pepperoni in the same class as salami. Salami is absolutely disgusting.
>> No. 29452 [Edit]

I just think it tastes bad.

I love the stuff.

>>29452
It can be just about anything you want it to be. It's like >>29402 said, it comes in countless styles and can be made without any of the things you don't like on it. It's next to impossible to not be able to enjoy at least one type of pizza.

My headphones have a long ass cable, so not really.

I do end up dragging a bunch of things off my desk from time to time though like >>29427 said because of how long the cord is though.
>> No. 29431 [Edit]
i did this and destroyed one of the headphone jacks inside my computer. i have to use the other one now.
>> No. 29434 [Edit]
I've broken far too many headphones over the years to count because of this.

Like the title asks, what kind of clothes do you like to wear either indoors or outdoors?

I like wearing my black zip-up hoodie a lot, I've had it for years now and I feel a bit attached to it. It's worn now, it can't even zip anymore but I still wear it often because it has sentimental value to me. Another thing I like to wear is aprons, not really sure why.

What about you TC? What do you like to wear and why?

Please don't hate me.

Doc Martens, Ripped jeans, Band T-shirt, Leather jacket with patches... A walking stereotype. Basically a "Hey normies, look at me! I'm dressing like you!. Which is fine and all... but doesn't change the fact is an imposed style.
>> No. 29358 [Edit]
I have like 10 "charcoal" t-shirts, very dark gray but not quite black. 3 long sleeved versions, and then a few other t-shirts. The only logo'd ones have software projects or incredibly obscure internet culture stuff on them, nothing that screams weeby or nerd. 2 tank tops for when I go to the gym or feel like being white trash.

As far as my jackets go, I have a few surplus military coats, some plaid button ups, and a few more fashionable ones. But less is more, in my book.

Pants are mostly jeans.

Oh, and I have a monk outfit from my time in the monastery. Comfy, but not really street wear.

When I'm hangin' in my room, I usually wear basketball shorts or pyjama pants, based on the weather, with a t-shirt.

I think sometimes I try too hard to dress normal and end up looking autistic-er.
>> No. 29373 [Edit]
I wear the same black dickies work pants every day and ugly black walking shoes. Then I have a baseball cap and wear some sort of t-shirt, either dark colored or stripes.

>Good. Having them around leads to tone policing and ad hominems of the type you're posting now.

True that.

My answers:
- I've moved out of my parents house, but I'm in uni housing on their dime. I still live with them during breaks.
- I don't know how "friends" are defined, but it's possible 10 or more people might come who are not family.
- Went to two concerts. One was country/indie and a sit-down affair. The other was EDM but I got there late and ended up sitting in the back row alone.
- Tried weed once. I suspect the guy who gave it to me did it thinking I'd do something funny. I just ended up getting paranoid and clamming up.
- Went to at least one house party (memory fails me). Got drunk, depressed, and left halfway through.

Fun stuff.

But you're still alone for birthdays and New Year?
>> No. 29405 [Edit]
I really don't see the point in this, especially when it's so normal in itself.
10+ friends? How about one?
Get compliments regularly? Who are you interacting with to receive them?
Go out on most weekends? How about going out at all?

I'm working with the assumption that team sports and parties organized by my mom when I was prepubescent don't count, at which point I get 0.

What are your thoughts on the common portrayal in Japanese media of life essentially being limited to one's time in school?

It's just an easy and barely noticeable way cutting corners for practicality sake, anime/manga is full of them. It doesn't really mean they're lazy, it just means they're using their time and resources more efficiently and in creative ways. It's like animating only a characters mount when they talk rather than their whole face, panning over still frames for the illusion of animation, having background characters who are poorly drawn and don't move, putting the most care into a characters head area rather than the rest of their body which is where most people focus on then putting all the detail in the eyes for the same reason, and of course this also includes using school uniforms so you don't have to design and draw dozens of different outfits instead of variations of the same uniform.

Very realistic. After school ended, I was NEET for a year, , then my life just became centered around working. I did not do much in school, had no friends and hated school in general, but I could always count on toughing the day through then going home to browse the internet and watch anime and shit, especially when summer come.

When I was 17/18 I lost the spark of video games and anime. all star battle was released, JOJO was being animated, watamote got an anime, PS4 was out. None of it interested me. My life ended sometime around this time.

I was without internet for a good chunk of that time, so I hypothesize that I became "unaddicted" to anime and video games, and was reduced to a dead soulless husk with nothing to look forward to in this world.

My oh my, the lull of video games and anime was so sweet. Being absorbed in anime and videogames is like being on drugs. And when it's over I snap out of it and I'm crying on the bathroom floor.

when I was in middle school and early highschool, I wanted to do drugs, wanted to fuck women (or at least prostitutes) trannies, twinks, whatever. Wanted to watch all the anime in the world, play every video game, spend all my days browsing the infinite internet, spend hours combing gelbooru and paheal. Wanted to learn japanese, wanted to learn to draw manga and hentai, wanted to master guitar shredding. wanted to start a metal band, never wanted to work. wanted a full gaming PC set up, wanted a dakimakura, posters, onaholes, wanted an outcast loser tomoko gf to love, I wanted everything life had to offer.

It all just fizzled away in a moment somehow, don't know how, but now I'm here and I don't want much of nothin. It's all gone now. Maybe those were juvenile desires, maybe I got raped or something. Who knows? I did have a bad trip on shrooms at the end of this time. Don't recall it having much of an effect on me but the following months I was smacked with a series of existential crisis' and I guess I realized that none of this matters. So sad, I suppose.

Wouldn't a anime about people in their 20s would feature even less variety clothes and less variation in scenes since everyone would be wearing office suits in cubicles all day.

Watch new game.

They sort of make fun of the main character for wearing a suit to the job, and she's pretty much the only character who wears the same thing each ep.
Most jobs 'usually' don't have strict dress codes or uniforms unless it's an entry level/minimum wage kind of job. That's why something like Working! works for this but servant x service doesn't.

I found a pornographic dvd in one of my PS2s that I didn't use anymore, I think it might have been left there by someone who broke into our home a couple months before I discovered it.

Assuming you're asking about the "nature vs nurture" argument, the general consensus right now in humans seems to be that roughly 70% of your personality and character is determined by your nature and genetics, and the remaining 30% is determined by your environment and external stimuli.

How do I stop fapping so much?
I spend too much time sitting in front of the monitor and then it just happens
I don't think this is healthy, I need to stop
>> No. 29222 [Edit]
By exercising the willpower not to touch your penis. Get up and make a cup of tea when the urge arises and make sure to drink it standing in the kitchen instead of bringing it back to your computer desk. You can read a book in the meantime, too. Or maybe go for a walk. The main thing is that you stand up and get away from your computer for a bit.
>> No. 29223 [Edit]
It shouldn't be unhealthy, as long as it doesn't hurt.
>> No. 29224 [Edit]
The only thing bad that will happen from constant masturbation is you will become very unsensitized. If you already are then the solution is to simply masturbate less(as little as you can) and switch to onaholes only. A real vagina works too.

>How do I stop fapping so much?

quantify yourself
i bet you're below average on this site
anyway masturbation is good for you. does it feel good? yes, so do it as often as possible.
if you answered no then you're doing it wrong.
