Describe 2020 to someone living in 2010

2020 is overhated. A little pestilence here and some civil unrest there and people act like the world is ending when western civilization has been through far worse.

I guess it depends in what country you live in, but in some it hasn't been "a little pestilence" but the most devastating year since the last war they were directly involved. We're talking about GDP getting fucked between 10-15% in one year, that's absolutely nuts. Of course some countries will recover fast but others will lag for decades, if they ever recover. It could also be the year of the beginning of an enormous change in geopolitics and how the world power is distributed.
>> No. 36041 [Edit]
>>36040
I'm not the person to be talking about the geopolitical ramifications of it with, to be honest. I was more talking about the severity of the actual pandemic, the death rate of the virus is very low compared to things of the past.
I was also just talking about how people on social media bitch about every year like it's the worst ever.

Your life will pretty much carry on as is while all the normal people freak out about not being able to go out and get drunk for a few months. The economy will go to shit but since you're not retarded with money (and lucky) you won't really notice that either outside of some "free" money showing up in your bank account.

Its been a good year for me but a lot of it's down to luck. I saw the freakout over corona coming with how Italy went and planned ahead. When everyone else went grocery shopping I already had everything I'd need for over a month. A lot of normal people lost their shit in isolation. It took them down a peg mentally and helped my self image.

>>36040
Yeah, the economy has been the real thing. I've been learning more about finance lately and it really seems like the govt is pulling all sorts of tricks to keep the economy afloat until the election.

What do you think about webtoons as a format? They apparently originated in Korea, but some Japanese artists have picked it up and it seems to be gaining traction(at least for porn). Good, bad? Has anybody seen any interesting ones?

Some of the mangakaka I follow release chapters/bonuses on Twitter. Does that count?

I don't follow many, but I am annoyed by how many are uploaded onto the panda, often with poor, almost machine-tier translation.
>> No. 36005 [Edit]
I hate Korean webtoons because I don't like the big single page format they use. Web manga is not really the same.

I tried to enjoy some Korean webtoons, but the art isn't anything special (and doesn't seem to vary across different artists), and the stories don't appeal to me. Maybe one has to do some digging to find the good stuff.

do you still watch anime?

I enjoy older romance stuff a lot, or even just SoL, the typical otaku fare. It makes me feel good. I will branch out and read a lot of stuff though, like even stuff I wouldn't typically read like tragedy or sports, even if it's not that great because of the fact that lot of SoL isn't fully translated unfortunately. Not to mention that a lot of romance manga have taken the western comic/battle shonen route of never having an ending planned to drag it out.

Regardless, I probably should post on /ma/ more.

I don't really enjoy romance but with regards to SoL, have you read Chotto Ippai and Maid-san wa Taberu Dake?

I've read a bit of the former. It's cute.
I just enjoy romance because I unashamedly self-insert and it makes me feel less alone.

It's quite surprising that there isn't an anime adaptation of it yet, considering it's been around for quite a while and doing fairly well in Japan. Not to mention it's published in Manga Time Kirara.

I owned a kitty which I loved, but she died of old age. I won't be in a position to own another pet for years because the house is too small and my parents are too old.

They look much better when compared to TV cartoons from 2000's and on, but compared to Anime they do look kind of bad, they look a bit better in movement though.

I'm here to spread the gift of gay porn remixes. I'll be gauging interest here with this thread.

FAQs

1. What is an OtoMAD?

An OtoMAD is a musical composition created by taking samples from various sources (gay porn, anime, and such) and remixing them into a song.

2. What is a YTPMV?

YTPMV is an acronym for YouTube Poop Music Video. It's the western equivalent of OtoMAD. They mean essentially the same thing, but in practice OtoMADs and YTPMVs typically use different samples.

This is correct. The Iliad and the Odyssey are older than written language, and originate in Greek oral traditions.
>>34541
I was thinking of picking up Robert Fangle's translation. It focuses on capturing the meaning behind the Greek original and retaining the vivid style of Homeric storytelling, while using more modern language.

How would you describe what "cute" is to someone who's alien to the idea?
>> No. 35847 [Edit]
>>35843
Well seems like a dictionary definition would be a good start [1]. The first definition there is pretty spot-on

>Possessing physical features, behaviors, personality traits or other properties that are mainly attributed to infants and small or cuddly animals; e.g. fair, dainty, round, and soft physical features, disproportionately large eyes and head, playfulness, fragility, helplessness, curiosity or shyness, innocence, affectionate behavior.
The only circular definition might be "cuddly", but the specific qualities listed should help disambiguate.

Although perhaps more interesting is that the meaning of "cute" has diverged from its original:
>Shortened from acute, originally “keenly perceptive or discerning, shrewd” (1731). Meaning transferred to “pretty, fetching” by US students (slang) c.1834. Meaning drifted further to describe the pleasing attraction to features usually possessed by the young.

To my non-native brain, I understood cute as something attractive and/or beautiful but doesn't evoke any sexual desire. I would call a pretty butterfly cute or a nice, colorful wallpaper pattern cute but reading the dictionary definition posted above I see that's incorrect. Interesting.
>> No. 35852 [Edit]
>>35849
There are multiple definitions to cute. You might be referring to the usage as
>Generally, attractive or pleasing, especially in a youthful, dainty, quaint or fun-spirited way.
Although to me calling a butterfly "cute" seems a bit weird unless it's one of those cartoonish butterflies. Ditto for calling a colorful wallpaper "cute," since I normally only attribute cuteness to things that are nominally "alive" or intended to portray life (so a stuffed animal or figurine would count as well).

Then again maybe the term has diverged even further since I do recall some kids using "cute" in the sense you described, even though I feel the term "pretty" would fit better.

I think my enjoyment of things decrease everytime I share it with others (through the internet, only share I can do).
When I was a teen I played any videogame and I could find cool ideas and get some enjoyment from almost everything. And if the game was considered good I was probably going to find it good too or see why it had that consideration. Now as an adult I discovered every game I liked was actually shit. If it was a well known game, it was entry level shit. If it was a cult classic it was hipster overrated shit. If the game had good story, suddenly that story is considered horrid and awful, worse than the cheapest novel. If I felt the combat was great, it's now considered irredeemable and unplayable. The same with anime or movies.
You thought Legend of Galactic Heroes had good writing? It was actually the shittiest ever and also pretentious.
Akira had great animation? It was a forced, overanimated mess, but you didn't know enough to notice.
It's all bad and if you like it you are probably dumb/have no standards. I think the internet it's taking our enjoyment of things, turning us into sour individuals that can't enjoy a thing. And I know it's ultimately our fault, just wanted to reflect about it.
