They say you learn something new every day. Let's see if that statement is true!

ITT post something new you learned today. Trivia knowledge is more than welcome.

I learnt the difference between noir and neo-noir.

Noir was heavily dependent on the era it was released in. It was a time when overt sex and violence was forbidden in film and technological limitations prevented the presence of colour however it was these very restrictions that caused noir to have the impact that it did. With those restrictions lifted, violence and sex have to be much more overt to have the same emotional impact on today's desensitised audience than what was necessary for the audiences of the '40s.

Neo-noir is an attempt to create the same impact that noir did despite the technological and cultural changes that have occurred since the '40s. Some believe that noir to be an inimitable cultural phenomenon that will only ever exist within the bubble of time that was present during its creation. Others have continued to experiment with the neo-noir genre and prove otherwise.

Personally, after watching Chinatown, I can safely say that I don't get it. I'll probably need to watch it again to get it though. Preferably with subs since I seemed to have missed most of the dialogue.

Yesterday I learned that x64 Windows has only one HAL.DLL, because the x86_64 is so standardized that there's little configuring OEMs can do. x86 versions of Windows have a few HAL.DLLs for the inclusion or absence of stuff like APIC.

Today I learned there are 100% Animal Crossing speedruns. They average for 70 hours but the world record is 63 hours. And the runners don't take breaks.

It used to be that if you google 241543903 you get images of people sticking their heads in a freezer. Now googling 241543903 brings up images instructing people to google 241543903 to see images of people's heads in freezers.

You made me look up Show by Rock and it looks so moe.
I'm a bit old for this kind of series nowadays but if i ever get a happiness burst again, i'll watch it.
The artstyle hit me deep, i can only hope the anime is as fun as the chara designs are.

To elaborate; While the anime features some fantastic character designs and even some nice music here and there the rest of the anime is poorly written and directed. A major issue many had with it was the regular use of CGI during long segments of the series, typically whenever the bands would perform if memory serves correctly. I'm not even talking about cost saving corner cutting gci versions of characters used during hard to animate segments like many anime do. They'd transform into furry nendoroid versions of themselfs that looked like something out of the Sonic universe. Oddly enough too etotama aired in the same season and did something like that too with it's characters. Difference being etotama tried to make the characters look 2D during those segments while Show by Rock went for a look that made them look like figurines, which even the ED alludes to.

Part 1/3. Now you can begin to imagine what Fuminori experienced everyday (also: some of the most faithful depictions of 3D sex I have ever seen in part 3/3).

Damn. I had a very similar situation to yours. Here is some history I have with it.

I was booted from my house and lost my computer so I just had my psp as a browser. I also used it to play games too, naturally. I had to go home secretly(thanks bro) and download anime, games and unload pictures I saved. The browser wasn't very good though. I remember trying to browse high post count threads on 4chan and being unable to load further more because of the limited ram. I was using it for hours everyday non stop. Custom firmware is wonderful.

Some time later, my laptop broke in Japan. I had to again resort to my psp for wifi. However it was harder to browse on more modern sites and I was having connection problems alot of the time. I couldn't repair my laptop then and there so I thought, you know maybe I'll buy a vita since the psp served me well through all this time. Unfortunately I regretted it and should have got a smartphone instead. The vita needs CFW.

This psp is the most sentimental thing I own.

Also, to contribute to the thread my mx518 mouse is great. Mine has more than 15 million clicks and it's still going.

Most of TC is moe-kei and/or Akiba-kei otaku, but are any of us other types of otaku?

I have a big thing for Japanese naval stuff, but my other big love is urban infrastructure, mainly trains, trolleys and subways. Akihabara is like porn to me.

I spend most of my time in Minecraft making urban plans in creative mode, working around the auto generated maps and trying to make elevated lines, subway tunnels, buildings and canals. Right now my favourite map is one I have been working on for two years, inspired by Kanda and Chiyoda in Tokyo as well as Boston.

i think we can all agree that some anime has better art than others and the logical extension of that is that some anime is good and some is bad. blind obedience to the japanese will allow bad anime to flourish along with the good, while being vocal about their failing will allow them to eliminate the bad and eliminating the less desirable elements of anime will lead to an overall improvement that general acceptance will not. the massive cow-cunts the faggots in japan are appending to cute little girls are hideous. does your waifu have an inflamed infection down there or is she wearing pads or maybe some kind of monster dildo or is just just swollen and bruised from all of the cock? it that what you want for cute japanese 2dgirls? i don't. cute little girls have nothing external in that area. boys do, so if you want something like that then you are gay.

in my life anime had only gotten better, its hasn't stagnated or gotten worse yet and i've been involved for a long time. sometime something horrible rears its ugly head, but good anime fans shout it down and in general anime improves over time because lame fads like scrotomes on girls are eliminated.

new anime fans like you should just shut the fuck up. if forced maymays are your number one worry in life you don't belong here anyway so maybe consider the fact you and your kym-obsessed ilk can do a lot to improve tc by lurking instead of posting. the board will improve noticeably if this advice is followed and everyone enjoyment of it, you own included, will increase.
thanks.

Natto is good on rice, in a similar manner to soy sauce.

However, after acquiring a taste for it, kimchi also tastes good on rice, and is at least tolerable on its own.

On the same note, try to find a first-generation Chinese immigrant and seeing how much they like bleu cheese. You might just make them vomit.

Are you the same person you were when you were a child, or are you a completely different creature using it's name and pretending to be them?
At this point in time all cells in your body have probably been cycled out, lost over the years and replaced with the intake of new mater. Physically speaking you're not in the same body that you once were. You undoubtedly look a little different too. It doesn't stop there, your personality has most likely changed and become completely different, as well as your interests and tastes. If the 'old you' acted differently, thought differently, looked different, and had memories/experience you don't anymore. Can you truly say you two are the same person?

Calling someone a person is drawing a line where there is none. You are the universe, all of it, there are no persons.
If you want to draw a line then it depends on how you draw it if a person is the same when all the parts has been changed.

I've been studying 日本語 for a year now and I can still barely read VNs or a couple of pages of manga. The grammar rules just don't stick to me, I feel like I must suffer from retardation or a really low IQ. I'm honestly starting to feel like spending all my time on the internet has turned my brain into mush.

Meanwhile I see people who have studied in half the time make twice the amount of progress as me.

Then again I am lazy. I have no motivation whatsoever. If my mom didn't get me out of bed every morning I probably would just sleep until I die.

Just end me
