For years I've had the idea of making youtube videos, primary anime reviews. One of the main reasons being the slim hope I'd be able to at least make 'some' income off it as unlikely as that might be to happen. Well I finally took the plunge and went ahead with it. I wanted to at least get a few vids out before posting about it here. I should warn though that they've been pretty horrible so far and as such you shouldn't expect much. Should come as no surprise that someone who has very little interaction with people offline would have trouble speaking so the videos can be a little numbly, for that I apologize.

My channel can be found here for anyone curious.

Is Loli/Shota allowed here? It's technically illegal.

I deleted my stashes all a long time ago out of paranoia.

I would be fine with it, but then again,my name and address are not attached to the servers.

Also the map is inaccurate, because the US constitution allows loli and shota under free speech, so even if yo are charged, it would take the world's most ineffectual lawyer to not get that overturned.

I am in a state in red, and have bought doujinshi hard copy in another adjacent state in red, with underage characters, and nobody has had an issue.

Neither are mine, but I'm paranoid what can I say?

Again with this faulty map.
>Prohibits computer-generated child pornography when "(B) such visual depiction is a computer image or computer-generated image that is, or appears virtually indistinguishable from that of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct"; (as amended by 1466A for Section 2256(8)(B) of title 18, United States Code).
Japan has a similar setup.

>Prohibits drawings, sculptures, and pictures of such drawings and sculptures depicting minors in actions or situations that meet the Miller test of being obscene, OR are engaged in sex acts that are deemed to meet the same obscene condition. The law does not explicitly state that images of fictional beings who appear to be under 18 engaged in sexual acts that are not deemed to be obscene are rendered illegal in and of their own condition (illustration of sex of fictional minors).

The Miller test is here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miller_test

"Ashcroft vs. Free Speech Coalition" clarified the previously ambiguous law. Loli and shota is legal in all 50 states, although ignorance could lead to erroneous prosecutions.
>> No. 28988 [Edit]
I understand it is as being kind of a legal grey area, and I've never been able to get a straight answer as to the actual legal status of it. I think in practical terms it's like >>28740 said, the FBI probably has its hands full dealing with more serious crime and is unlikely to spend much time and effort investigating it. Considering 4chan/b/ has round the clock threads on the subject and I'm pretty sure the FBI is well aware of the existence of that board at this point, I'd say it's not a subject that law enforcement considers high priority one way or the other.

My guess is that viewing that sort of material and saving it on your computer is probably pretty low risk, although if cops happened to raid your house for something similar like CP and found lolicon they might try to charge you with something.

If you're really paranoid your best bet would probably be to create an encrypted container on a flash drive and then just keep the flash drive hidden somewhere when you're not using it.

Children have to learn what's wrong before they can do what's right, by learning earlier they can apply a wider logic earlier.
Of course you have to prevent them from seriously injuring or killing themselves.
The reason there's so many spoiled kids and into adults is often because of coddling and enabling.

>>28618
I think the greatest message here is self-discipline, so it doesn't matter where you are ethically.
I think that the good behaviour arrow should also point towards negative consequence as well, just like choice can result in misbehaviour.
I think you're kind of writing your own rules into it. "e.g." just means they're tangible examples of positive consequences.
So if your goal is murder, rape, theft or whatever. So long as you don't get caught, or perhaps you do and get the spin you want; the graphic isn't necessarily wrong.
I disagree with the graphic on a few points as successful people don't necessarily have manners. Assertive people rarely give people the space they want, but just enough so they get what they want from them.

It just goes to show again that morality is not linked to reward, whether it should be is a much more complicated question than this thread can discuss.

I know we're a lazy bunch and we don't go out that much but I'd still like to propose you a photography thread as it can be funny like I'm imagining it.

It's simple. Use any device that let's you take photos and report back with something interesting you found. It can be anything. Outside your window, in your room, in your backyard, in your garage or house. It doesn't have to be any kind of professional stuff, although that's okay of course.

Please limit photos to a maximum resolution of 2560x1920 or something around that area for everyone's viewing pleasure. The photos have to be new and not something you took last year. がんばって!

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.

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.

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.
