Do you go out of your way to buy physical media these days? I recently purchased a PlayStation 2 to play games off of the HDD port and realized that it can also play DVDs. Both DVDs and older (but not retro) video games sell for literally pennies but hardly anyone bothers. Does piracy make physical media irrelevant? I would start collecting but my fear of disk rot destroying my collection years down the line is stopping me, which I suppose is another argument in favor of digital media.

What do you think?
>> No. 32363 [Edit]
Manga I do because I prefer reading physical copies and I want to encourage the market. If I am getting a game that I want on Console then I will try to get a physical copy of that too.

I still collect some physical media but it's much more about having it there to be admired rather than actually bothering to use it. A lot of games from my childhood are simply unusable now and I don't have the slightest clue as to why since so far as I can tell they were stored in nearly ideal conditions. Not in the sun, not with 2+ discs per case, not blazing hot or cold...

Plus there's just the question of size. A single book or DVD doesn't take up much space but when you have hundreds of them it really starts adding up. Every PS2 game ever made takes up a lot of shelf space, on a hard drive though? It's only 2tb. With the price of storage right now that's not bad at all. Hard drives aren't without their faults (the possibility of something wiping them, ransomware, bitrot, failure) but almost all of those problems can be checked for or avoided altogether. And all of that juicy, juicy content in such a compact form. Hell, you've probably already got a computer with excess bays, you won't even notice the extra object in your home.

All that considered there really isn't a point anymore outside of stuff you really like, want to support, or things that hold sentimental value. But for that you don't even need to buy the actual show, you could buy something arguably more useful like a fig. Outside of books and a few games from my childhood I'm at the point where I literally can't see any point in it.

Seems you can buy bully insurance in Japan in the event your kids get bullied in school.

what do you do when you secretly hire the local bancho to bully your kid so you can split the insurance payouts with him, but then he turns the tables on you and teams up with the kid to get the whole insurance check plus sweet revenge for the kid

That was the first thing that I thought about upon reading this, but it seems they only help with legal fees so you'll probably need to prove you're hiring a lawyer.

Why do people enjoy talking about themselves so much?
6 posts and 1 image omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 32330 [Edit]
Self-disclosure is gratifying, and makes the part of your brain that reacts to having sex or taking drugs active, albeit in a smaller way.

On here, people probably just can’t relate to anyone else and enjoy having similar company
>> No. 32331 [Edit]
Maybe they don't have anything else to talk about so that is easy for them. Plus there is a feeling of value that is implied by somebody wanting to have you talk about yourself.
>> No. 32332 [Edit]
My guess is due to living in a culture that increasingly encourages sociopathic and narcissistic tendencies, particularly in first world countries.

Shut-ins and NEETs live in their own bubble so it's difficult to talk about things outside of it, if they haven't experienced it and/or are far behind their peers. But I believe the divide between experience for those who aren't ones and those who are isn't all that great. Everyone else just sugarcoats themselves more. It's a society of always trying to make yourself look good.
>> No. 32334 [Edit]
>>32332
I don't think it's even a modern phenomenon necessarily. Time to talk about myself: my grandmother and most of her remaining friends are off the charts self-absorbed by today's standards. People enjoy this narrative of cultural decay: "things suck now because of social media, the internet, television, radio, books, ..." but I'm firmly in the human nature camp. Although Western culture is ostensibly individualistic, and technology can enable and amplify expression of both good and bad tendencies.

On may 14th Chiitan’s official twitter accounts were all deleted with the exception of their English account after some feud with the talk show host John Oliver.

Additional accounts aside from the main one have been suspended, now.

A theory popped up on online forums stating that the Chiitan account owners might have tried to be cute and set the birthdates to "0 year old", which caught attention of Twitter's rule enforcement team.

It's something to talk about. Pull your head out of your ass and make some topics yourself if you have a problem with it.

I wish I kept better backups of all my data. It's became something of a hobby of mine to archive things I think are cool and I've managed to lose so much stuff out of sheer incompetence. Mostly personal artwork that I'm never getting back.

Definitely the book thing. I don't think I ever read anything worth reading until around the age of 16. It was mostly fiction that I can barely recall the stories in.
I especially wish I had read Schopenhauer earlier. Maybe not 'World' initially, but I would give 14 year old me his short essays to read. People (teachers, parents, etc.) never tell you how bad life is and that its problems are intractable.
I think if I had learned that earlier I would have been more at peace, wanted fewer things. Maybe I would have mastered the art of taking it easy, instead of wanting and stressing over thing like I still do today.

Even Disney Renaissance movies from the early 90's don't look as good when compared side by side to modern Anime series, they look pretty mediocre honestly.

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.

One of the mods must not like Disney girls much.

Arby’s has created a chibi character mascot with an “#ArbysWaifu” hashtag.

How is that not enough? A large corporation is exploiting the waifu concept on main stream media and OP was asking how people with waifus feel about that.
God forbid we give the waifu board a bit of activity and show the board doesn't have to just be people talking endlessly about their personal waifu, nah we have to go and toss this into the catch all board that already gets plenty of posts while screwing up all the post replies in the process. Thanks a lot.

Isn't it just one twitter post? I hardly consider that mainstream media at all, considering that maybe a few thousand people maybe saw it. Not like it was being shown in ad campaigns on TV or something. It's pretty obvious what most people here think about others misusing the word, some dislike it and get annoyed while others don't care much. The discussion is mostly about the other aspects of it, bashing corporate marketing BS and how people on other parts of the internet view it in other ways as the OP mentioned pedo/racist/whatever.

This.
I get really triggered when people misunderstand art like that.
Thanks for making the explanation short too, I was about to write a giant rant trying to clarify why the classic ("western") way of art training is the correct way but that's unnecessary I guess.

I don't think they are even claiming to give a shit about otaku subculture. The moe subculture has become an internet meme and a lot of normalfags are changing their twitter pfps to cute anime girls for brownie points on social media. Arby's saw this was a new trend and jumped on it.
The point I am trying to get at is that no one really gives a fuck about otaku subculture anymore except us and other small internet communities. This is all a game to them, especially to Arby's considering that they can make money off of being "hip with the kids".

>the access to some adult material may have spoiled them in a sexual way
This concerns me greatly. Ever since the sexual revolution in the 60s, our society has become absolutely obsessed with sex. And on top of that we are expected to not only accept most types of sexual perversion, but to also celebrate them. I am already begining to see some teenagers on social media openly admitting to watching all kinds of degenerate porn in a non joking manner. As if to say "this is what I enjoy and you all better accept it."
I have no problem with anyone having some weird fetish (unless it's something morally reprehensible) but you need to keep that stuff to yourself or only talk about it in anonymous chatrooms. I would rather not live in a society where I see men openly getting pegged by a dominatrix in the streets.

Technically, yes, but YouTube comments were never known for their quality.
