How do you think browsing tohno-chan affects you mentally?

Ive noticed myself becoming more and more cynical as i browse this site more and more. Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of good to be found on here, but it is dangerous.

Tohno-chan appears to be a double edged sword. The fact that you have a community similar to yourself, which attracts most people to this site, also causes them to confuse cynical thoughts as truth. And I think the more time you spend on here, the more depressed you get as a person. Which creates some sort of cycle. Being sad about life and doing nothing to change it, and coming back to the site for advice from other users who are just as sad as you.

I've heard people refer to this place as being far too depressing to hang out at, which seems fair. Lot of the founding members left because of the negative vibes here. Calling it dangerous also seems fair, as talk of suicide is not exactly uncommon. There's also very clearly a lot of acceptance for hate. I think you're probably more likely to be called out for liking something rather than hating something. We're like a black hole of negativity and despair. As the slogan says we really have no way of knowing how many people here have killed themselves so far.

Personally I've been on here for many years now. Could even go as far as to say I've sacrificed a lot for this place. To be perfectly honest there have been times when I've had the opportunity to really change my life, but decided to stick to the tc mindset. Kinda funny considering it's a place where people have told me to fuck off and go back to xyz more times than I can count, in spite of TC being the main site I've called home for the past five years. I dropped 4chan all together and have never been a fan of reddit or any other such sites. I don't really have anywhere else to go. TC means a lot to me and I'm not exaggerating when I say I've come here every day for years. Image boards are a dime a dozen, but I feel like TC is truly one of a kind and you're not gonna find these kinda people anywhere else. People here have called me every name in the book but I still consider them family, a very screwed up family sure but a family never the less.

Recently I have started to wondered if I haven't become too relent on tc. Like a sort of hugbox where everyone sees things the same way for the most part. I don't often find myself arguing or even disagreeing with people here very often and I can't help but wonder if that's not making me weak. Someone recently said I put up a protective bubble and refuse to grow up, I'm curious if this place is part of that.

I won't go as far as to say that Tohno-chan saved my life but it's nice to have a slow, safe, place.
Once you realize you don't have the balls to kill yourself and find hate too tiring nothing bothers you anymore.

I haven't been a regular on this site for a few years. Is it slower than before? Or am I misremembering things?
>> No. 27998 [Edit]
I dunno man I don't really take it that seriously. It's not a very fast site so I find it a little hard to. I just like to check in every now and then and see what people say. I do kinda wonder what I'd do if it was more active though.

I guess I do kinda find it depressing when people talk about how bad they have it, though. I don't know if it's empathy or something but reading about how depressed someone is makes me depressed. I feels kinda cheap to say it's empathy though, because honestly I don't care about a random stranger. Just out of apathy is all. Maybe like, reverse projection? Not like it really affects me or anything though, I just go back to watching anime.

Do you ever sleep naked because you find wearing too many clothes uncomfortable? Do you lounge around the house wearing nothing but tights, a skirt, and a bra because its too hot?

Does anyone else like to play on UFO catcher machines or like to play in arcades?

Recently I won this cute little Alpacasso mini plushie. Yeah I know most of the games in the arcade are a scam (almost all of them are designed only to pay out when they made a profit), but they're still plenty of fun. Some arcades have anime figs and other interesting otaku goods in them.

I know how those machines work. They actually have a series of DIP switches that the owner can flip to change how easy it is to win. So of course they can just flip them all and make it impossible. It's on the controller board in the cabinet under the machine, where the coins go. I don't touch the things. Here's a vid about one: https://youtu.be/Y-23zBshxD0
>> No. 27981 [Edit]
I myself considered an arcade one of the few business ventures I'd pursue if I ever had the chance. But yeah, you can't operate a business just because you like it. Sadly, even doing my best to acquire the right machines and location, I doubt it'd make a profit because of lack of interest by the general public.

I've loved to play Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 3 in the arcade at the mall for the past 4 years now. I recently found out that the manufacturer stopped making cards for it, so now I can only play out what cards I have left before it becomes rather pointless, the machines are in pretty bad shape now too.
I loved Initial D as well when I was younger, but I haven't seen a machine for that in 5 years, even then it had no cards.
Dance Dance Revolution is fun too, but the only 2 in my city both Super Nova, which isn't the godly original DDR.

Another arcade closed down in the past year, leaving me without Virtual-On and another Wangan machine, and a few other games that were atleast playable.
I mostly blame the owners for not looking after their business and failing to buy machines that are loved, rather than super expensive($10,000+) shitty games like BATMAN, RAMBO, TERMINATOR SALVATION... The list goes on, like they never bothered asking the customers, or even paying attention to what's played.

The death of the North American video arcade is a Shakespearean tragedy, like old friends humiliated and destroyed before the final act.

The movie theater in town used to have a hydro thunder machine. I fucking loved that thing and played it too many times to count. Then they replaced it with one of those fast and furious shits you see all over the place.

I'm this guy; >>27981
I recently visited a Barcade, a den of bearded hipsters and lost collegiates. The few machines there were actually older games, decent ones at that, although some were in disrepair. A few bore the scars of machines that I had played long before in the theatres and malls around the city and it wouldn't surprise me if they were the same ones recirculated.
It was very much an assault on my largely intact nostalgia. Playing cabinets I hadn't touched in over a decade gave me a tactile sensation that sent waves through my body, indistinguishable from a mild drug experience. As much as I appreciate the hours I spent there, it was painful to see them exploited by such an unappreciative crowd.

Some openly furry/brony handed me an extra token and that really summed it up, almost poetically.

i'm a shitposter
i try to limit my shitposting to shitty boards, but i cannot deny that i enjoy shitposting. i bet there are others here who also shitpost and fill themselves with shitposter's shame, but i think that shitposting done responsibly is no sin. shitposting can even be quite amusing.
if you're a shitposter then confess in this thread and none of your sins will be forgiven.

It's not mine; I wouldn't consider microblogging shit-posting.
My interpretation is shitposting is not merely inane, it is deliberately counter-productive.

>It's like trying to define art: it's too broad, subjective and vague a concept.
Art: the expression of the human mind.

I got a 3DPD and then it all rolled on from there. Having a lukewarm hole to squirt into every once in a while gave me the motivation to do other things.
I still have my old hobbies that are /a/ and /k/ related though. Just less time for them since I got promoted at work about a year ago to a full time position and have to pay bills.

I feel like imageboards are either too fast, too shitty or too slow. I would like to start using forums again, does tc know of any good ones?
I'm mostly looking somewhere to discuss the usual tohno stuff. JRPGs especially, but anything goes really.
If there is a good place to discuss something in particular, please post it

Calling something good without qualifier and then telling people IF YOU DUN LIKE IT THEN YOU CAN GIT OUT when they raise an eyebrow at your description isn't really good.
>> No. 27778 [Edit]
the thing about that is the person you're replying to has a concept in his head which designates which boards are good or not and he assumes that his opinions are both logical and self evident, which they are to him, so he doesn't not need to explain it to you.
lack of empathy, the inability to try to see things from other's point of view rather than your own, is a common characteristic of autists and in fact defines the condition.

Why does it seem like the word "otaku" is taboo these days online?

Not just on the infamous mother *chan, of course. Everywhere from tumblr to reddit to YouTube comments, everyone just spouts

At the mere mention or sight of anything anime-related. What happened? Do you guys care?

It doesn't. The outer shell is just its case. The actual egg is made of an extremely elastic synthetic material that you can stretch several inches at least (they also come with a bit of lube.)

I think it feels pretty good, but then I don't use these all that often because they're a bit expensive for what they are and having to prepare to masturbate makes it feel like a chore. I've found that it's a lot more about what I'm beating off to than what I'm beating off with. It's an exact science, you see.

Do you think jacking it when it's dry harmful?
Will I lose sensitivity?
I recently started putting some water on it for these cases but sometimes I just seem to forget about it
I want to have my penis as healthy as possible

when your dry and the skin surface starts ripping then what do you do?

I'm cut a birth and I've been masturbating since I was 10. 100% dry all the times, no such problems. I cum way to fast though.

There was one time where I stroked it fast enough I burnt/damaged the skin on my tip.
>> No. 27361 [Edit]
Personally I've never jacked it any other way than dry, and I have never had any problems. A couple of times I've spat on my hands first but that's about it. Does using lotion or lube or something similar really increase the pleasure by that much? I've never quite been motivated enough to try, which I guess is kind of pathetic when you think about it. Anyway, no I don't see how jacking it dry is going to cause problems, unless you're doing it an awful, awful lot, in which case you might have chaffing or skin irritation to deal with.

Honestly, I think you should a damp small towel soak it with water then sub it up sparsely with soap an water(like if you were going to wash your face with it) an apply the moisture from that to your penis before wanking it, it's just something I do if Its to dry down there also try taking a long soak in the tub then wank there its quiet refreshing, just be sure to do so right before you get out the tub an are about to drain it don't want to be sitting in your own stew....
