I let the water chamber of my moka pot fall while cleaning it. I've damaged the coffee chamber and the basket quite a bit before and it still worked fine, but now it's leaking and thus broken.

Was my birthday, I turned 25. As always the birthday gifts I got sucked ass and the only decent one came from myself (pic related). Although as always my dad did gave me $100 which can be counted as any sort of gift I want. made my own cake last night... mom ate most of it before I got a slice. would have honestly have liked one of those dumb kids cakes with toys and stuff on it and maybe some candles... then again that might be embarrassing, I'm just gonna eat it alone in my room watching anime anyway. My email inbox got spammed with birthday messages from sites I don't even remember joining. Had dinner with my dad who I haven't seen in half a year, might be the last time I see him if me and my mom go trough with our move cross country. He dragged me the gym with him; I'm really sore. Kept talking about how it's a good place to socialize and meet people compared to clubs and bars, I kept telling them I didn't want to socialize and they said my attitude would change if I worked out more and they used to be the same but I doubt they had a waifu and a disgust for 3dpd. I'm just glad that crap is over with so I can get back to loosing myself in front of my pc screen.

Basically he is conducting something of a Scorched Earth campaign to keep his brother from getting anything from the place as his brother apparently stole a shitload of money from his account/cleaned it out & tried screwing him over.

I got my new headphones (beyer t1), I'm enjoying them a lot, it has resurrected some of my music adiction, which is nice, now my life isnt completely empty.
http://youtu.be/YZj_UK3-Ckg
Wow this song good in my new headphones. I didnt think that would happen but the T1s actually reveal even more details which wasnt obvious when I used my previous headphones, DT880.
Kinda irks me though that I define my days by what stuff I bought or got, its kinda sad in a way but I dont know how to solve it, Im not really interested in anything anymore.

.... I also got my package from jap amazon with all yuikaori singles and their photobook. I have it all on my computer of course but I feel good owning hard copies.

Oh, and I started eating supplements to increase my sperm production (ordered it because I was bored), it has only been a day but it feels as if my sex drive is higher, which I really dont want, it would make me miserable if I started feeling attracted to women.

My mother's dog had her puppies. There are, like, 4-5 of them. It's unfortunate, but one of them was born physically malformed with it's head all messed up. Both eyes are bulging out and entirely red, and it seems like a part of its brain is sticking out of the top of it's head.

I'm not sure if it can see or not, but it doesn't seem like its eyes will ever work and it doesn't seem to be able to latch on to its mother to feed. The whole thing is sad.

I played some Heroes of Might and Magic 3, its the only game Ive ever played that I truly suck at, I just cant figure out how to play it properly

Ive set my keyboard to dvorak, its terribly frustrating, took me a good 3 minutes to type out the sentence above. Learning it faster than I would have guessed though.
f is the hardest, I always press g instead

I bought a manikin head, torso and hand, I dont know why

Attempted to use this old super 8 camera that I brought some time last year but it didn't work at all; most likely due to rust on the springs in the battery compartment.

Brought myself another one from ebay. Hopefully I'll have more luck with this one since it's been tested, or so the seller claims.

>check out the rest of his stuff too when you have the time, Tryshala is really good.

Because a lot of people are saying Tryshala is somehow better than BBGT, I am almost scared that I will burn away in the face of brilliance or something, you know like when people look at the face of Haruhi in the Bible. In all seriousness though I will download it whenever I finally have the chance to return my ath-m50s for a new pair (the bass somehow broke) but BBGT managed to immerse me in total atmosphere, and at the same time at the end of the album when that last piano segment came in my emotions were completely drained. I know this sounds over exaggerated, but that album really managed to nail everything in terms of what makes music good for me, so that something even better from him exists is exciting. And it just gets better and better with each listen. Like I said I know it sounds like I am overpraising the album too much but that is really how I feel about it.

Compiled a list of books/anime/comics/games I haven't finished. Both in books and games I have listed a dozen (and I'm afraid I've forgotten to include some titles)

Today I finally replaced my window that broke in an earthquake with a screen.

Then I found a dead cat in the corner of the property. I buried it. Now I don't know if I should print up fliers to give to the neighbours telling them what happened.

If my cat went missing I'd be devastated.

Rotted teeth at the back of my mouth started throbbing again. Spent most of the night writhing and screaming. Not pleasant, but not nearly as unpleasant as the dentist's office is going to be.

When the pain eventually stopped I drank a bottle of wine, smoked a joint and played Persona 4.

By playing video games and doing the same exact things that I do everyday while eating food that is slightly tastier than normal. I've tasted the food, so I can say that much at least, but that's pretty much what I did today.

Can't complain since it wasn't too bad of a day with not too many people coming and doing the whole birthday thing.

In my country we can't get much strong stuff over the counter, and prescriptions for anything decent are hard to get. Whenever my jaw/teeth started throbbing I would usually cold water extract Codeine from Paracetamol(500mg)/Codeine(10mg) tablets. Most companies here put Paracetamol or Ibuprofen in with the Codeine to stop people using it for recreational purposes, which is a nightmare if serious pain persists even after you've taken the maximum safe dose of Para you can take without OD'ing, which is around 1500mg if I remember correctly, meaning only 30mg of Codeine unless you want to try your luck with unsafe doses of Paracetamol. If I hadn't learned of cold water extraction I'd have probably killed myself to end the pain by now.
>> No. 21992 [Edit]

Bought myself a jigsaw puzzle. Pic related. I bet you can't even tell but the bottom part depicts the still bagged pieces (along with a box of matches for comparison). Regrettably I have nothing I could take a proper picture with, sorry.

Will start tomorrow I guess. 2000 pieces, this will probably take a while (wanted to buy a 3000 pieces one but I don't have a big enough table). Haven't done one since I was like 5~6, so well over a decade and a half by now.

Now that I think about it my birthday is ~a week away, I wonder if I'll manage to finish it before then...
>> No. 21995 [Edit]

Looks nice. Always wanted to play with one of those humongous ones, have fun(and care not to lose any pieces).
>> No. 21996 [Edit]
>>21995

Well, 2000 is still not that big - after getting assembled it'll form a 96x68cm picutre. Just about the size of my only table, didn't want to assemble them on the floor.

But yeah, saw some 24000 pieces ones when I checked it on amazon out of curiosity - now that's big.
>> No. 21998 [Edit]

I attempted a 2000 piece puzzle once. I failed.

I will stick to 500 piece ones. 1000 if I wanna go for a challenge.

Daily progress report and more craptastic photos.

Sorting those puzzles took me literally two hours (first pic). Didn't have it in me to spend another two hours sitting there so I just put together the top edge and called it a day. This will take a long while, especially since this picture is pretty hard.

I've had an interesting last couple of days in regard to wildlife encounters. First, I met this fledgling blue jay, who hopped about so slowly that I didn't even really have to chase after it. It only squawked a couple of times after I grabbed it, and then just chilled out and stared at me. Knowing these birds, the mother wasn't likely about, as I'd have at least received a stern talking to if she'd seen me.

I thought things were getting better. I was getting along with my family, I'd made a few friends, I've been trying to eat healthy, and for the past month I've been waiting for my birth certificate in the mail so I can register my car and get a job driving and delivering things.

But then my Mother has to tear me back down again, telling me to get a job, telling me to grow up. Whenever I try and open up to her, she dismisses me. She's tired, and it would be better for her and anybody else I know if I just disappeared.

It's my own fault, though. I hate myself so much. I'm beginning to wonder if killing her and then myself is really such a bad idea. I just don't know anymore. I love her, but she makes me feel worthless. She makes me feel disgusting. I can't articulate my feelings, I'm narcissistic, egotistic, cynical and poisonous to anybody around me. I'm beginning to wonder if I can feel healthy emotions at all.

Today I got up and watched breakfast television. Today I wondered if I'll ever truly connect with another person.

It's probably not a very helpful thing to say, but shut-out and disregard anybody who makes you feel that way. That's what I've done for the last 10 or so years, and it hasn't failed me yet.

There's a spider that lives between my window and window screen. The air conditioning system is out. My dad came to my room and opened my window to demonstrate that I could open my window if I wanted to. I tried to warn him that a spider lived there but he misinterpreted it.

But the amount of time you gain by sleeping, isn't that some amount similar to the amount of extra time you spend awake? It'd be much better to buy sleeping pills (like Benadryl, with the active chemical diphenhydramine acting as a good knock-out drug) and abuse them.

The spider should be fine if he didn't squash it. Spiders repair or rebuild their webs daily, so it'll be business as usual for her, even if she had to set up shop in a different location.

I like spiders as well, although I have been killing the brown recluses lately because I've just seen too many, and I sleep on the floor. I have quite a few common house spiders hanging out, and I like having them around. This morning I even saw that one of the larger ones has a recluse nearly three times it's size all gnarled up in it's web, which kind of blows my mind. The house spider was still feeding on it when I got home in the afternoon and it's abdomen had doubled in size. I tried taking some photos of it, but couldn't really get close enough to it without destroying the web.

できた! Took me a while but I finally finished it.
... Wait, what am I supposed to do with it now? I kinda need to use that table for other things, it's been a problem for a while now.
Sigh, I guess I'll buy myself an A0 sheet and move it to that; hope it won't fall apart altogether.
On the other hand I can't deny there's this Sim City-esque desire to just destroy it right now. It really took a while and the second I finished it I thought 'okay, time to tear it apart'.

It was fun overall; can't deny there were some frustrating moments when I couldn't put a single piece in it's place for 10 straight minutes and I wanted to quit altogehter right there and then but when things were going well it was a blast.
I think I'll end up doing this again some day. I'd like to try a 3000 pieces one but I ain't buying a table just to play with some puzzles and my only one is too small for 3000.

>>22177

Surprisngly the rocks weren't as hard as I believed they'd be. They weren't easy either but they were far from the hardest part. I spent tons of time on areas like the sky or the black spaces between the rocks/mountains. You have absolutely nothing to go by except for the shape because the puzzles are exactly the same shade of one color. Same goes for the forrest on the left side - I thought it'd be very easy but it turned out to be impossible to put together based on looks and I ended up going by nothing but shape again.
This taught me a lot about how to choose puzzles. I picked this one based on looks alone; I just liked this picture. Turns out there's much more to look out for.

I read maybe 10 pages of a book. It's annoying that I have so many books to read. Whenever I start one, I get half way through and then see something on my bookshelf that interests me more, so I feel like dropping it and starting that instead, but then the cycle would just repeat itself.

I found a fledgling starling today and brought it home. Over the last couple of weeks I've found two injured fledglings, a sparrow and a cardinal, and both died pretty quickly on me, but the experiences really left me wanting to raise a bird as a pet. And although I've only had this lively guy for one evening, he's a lot of fun, hopping about and just being disgustingly cute. I'd already done a ton of research before finding it, and he seems old and healthy enough that I'm optimistic, especially since I had no trouble getting him to eat. And I thought that it would perhaps be a bit too old to become imprinted on me, but it didn't seem afraid of me at all by the end of the evening, even falling asleep in my lap as I was at the computer.

I'm thinking it's 20-25 days old, definitely in the early fledgling stage. It can hop it's ass off and manage a clumsy descending flight across the room. I'd thought that imprinting occurred more in the nestling phase, but this must not be entirely the case with starlings.
The bird is almost doing too well, and I imagine it will be quite a handful as it grows up, good fortune willing. I don't have a proper cage yet, but it enjoys hanging out in my little screen-windowed cubby.

The little starling is doing awesome. I didn't think he was going to live through the night of the 3rd, he was barely standing and showing what I thought to be symptoms of pneumonia. In the morning, I tried setting out a small dish of water. He took a couple of tentative steps in it, took a drink on his own, and then went crazy giving himself a bath and splashing everywhere. It was like flipping a switch, and suddenly he started eating again and hopping around happily. Today, he's beginning to take clumsy flights across the room, and peck and prod at every little thing.

Here he is asleep on my wrist while I was typing.

And I'm very tempted to keep playing now, as the atmosphere in this game is fantastic, but I don't want to have to re-do much when I play after the wipe.

An accurate assessment should take how eco-friendly the weapons used are(e.g. giving preference to weapons that don't rely on ignition, or at least assuring there's no heavy metals on the ammunition primers), the substances generated by the corpses decomposition, whether the wood for the coffins is properly certified, assure that the crime scene is near a police station so the cops can reach it without using cars and even the status of all victims(imagine if the gunner kills a prominent climate scientist).

I used to teach guitar at the local music store before giving it up (I became very disillusioned with the guitar as an instrument, as well as my abilities, once I discovered Prog Rock and Jazz) and since then I've not done much of anything at all, much to the dismay of my parents who felt I had natural talent. "Natural talent" is the result of practicing hours each day. Some are lucky enough to enjoy it, some aren't. I was one of the lucky few who enjoyed the work, enjoyed finding new voicings and working hours to refine them.

Discovering Electronic Music like Boards of Canada, Autechre, Flying Lotus and James Blake has really excited me. It's challenging every view I had of contemporary music (I was once a fairly typical "born in da rong generashun" closed-minded metal fan), and I'm loving it. I haven't been this excited about music in a long time, and I feel like I'm coming home. This time though, it's without my guitar. Now all I need is the money to fund my sound projects.

I'd also like to apologize for my walls of text.

Are you me, but played guitar instead of keyboard and viola, and actually ended up doing something with his life? Anyways if you want me to recommend you some electronic bands/albums I can.

Last.fm has been really useful for me in finding new, good music. Both for the site's own recommendation feature and from friends.

As were /mu/ sharethreads a fair while ago, but last I checked the majority of them had turned into request threads.

Electronic music doesn't cost anything to make if you have a reasonable desktop. All of the software can be pirated. Don't spend big on monitors or anything like that until you've got some experience.

It seems every single summer the same thing happens to me.

I post like usual on my usual boards.
I find some boards increasingly intolerable while others stay relatively untouched.
I avoid those boards for a little while but the only boards I go to now are relatively quiet.
I eventually go back to those boards.
I get upset again to the point where I'm completely fed up with all imageboards.

It's also strange that this usually happens around July every summer but oh well.

Oh, not at all. I've long been a reclusive NEET like most others here. I was just lucky enough to have a like-minded friend be the proprietor of a less than successful music store once upon a time. Haven't held another job since.

>if you want me to recommend you some electronic bands/albums I can
Absolutely, that would be great!

>>22438
I was looking at buying a few amps and microphones, which are never cheap unless you're looking to sound like a wasp trapped in a polystyrene cup. I've got a few guitars and bass guitars gathering dust, so I might as well put them to use.

I'll just assume you can find these yourself in high enough quality, if not look for kuru-kuru on the irc I might not be online depending on the time, but some good starters would be:

Orbital - In Sides, kind of a mix between the experimental non generic stuff and the more generic dance techno stuff

Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 85–92

Nine Inch Nails - The Fragile, Double album, takes multiple listens, lyrics are important, there are also a lot of rock and other elements mixed in really creative album

Secede - Bye Bye Gridlock Train and Tryshasla as already mentioned in this thread

The Prodigy - The Experience, This album isn't serious or experimental like the others, more fun dancey stuff

That should be good enough for now. Could be you know some of these already depending how deep into electronic you are. Keep in mind fairly good speakers/headphones are best for this kind of music. I'm somewhat in your position too with the whole starting to explore electronic, or at least the experimental stuff although I am assuming I am a good deal further than you, could be wrong though. Ah yeah and let me know what you think, onegai. Always love hearing people's opinions on music.

I used my Mother's computer to re-download the Fate/Stay Night visual novel. That's all nice and good, but I accidentally forgot to delete the torrent file after transferring the extracted folder to my barely working netbook. So now my Mother's probably found out about my otaku related hobbies. All those years of hiding it down the drain.

I'm enjoying the game, though. It's been a while.

Ugh, I think my motherboard is fucked or something. My display driver has been crashing a lot with firefox and sometimes playing certain games, and my connection is going nuts, too (router is plugged directly into this computer, the wireless connection to the family computer is working 100% fine).

At one point everything but the mouse froze up and when I moved it, it kept making a beeping noise as I was moving it.

Ran speedfan and coretemp, CPU and GPU seem fine, but speedfan said "AUX" had a temperature of 80 or so. Not sure what AUX is but I think it must be the motherboard fan or something?

I don't know what to do. I don't have the money for a replacement right now. I hope it can last til my next pay, I don't want to have to borrow from family or anything. I have 0 technology knowledge too, except for having replaced a few parts. I guess I just take note of where I unplug things from and transfer the parts over one at a time.

The AUX may or may not mean something, sometimes it's just not connected to anything and generates crazy values, which seem to be the case here.
Now the beeps you mentioned earlier could mean something. I presume they come from the motherboard(as opposed to the speakers)? Sometimes that happens when the temperature exceeds a certain threshold(usually visible on the BIOS configuration), other than that I don't really expect the MB to make sounds after booting(unless you tell it to do so, of course).
>> No. 22561 [Edit]
>>22560
The beeping came through my headphones as I moved the mouse. It really weirded me out.
But I just sucked some dust out of my PC and everything seems to be going swell now, I really don't know.
Only consistent problem I have is that a fan really grinds on cold days until the room/PC heat up. I think it's the power supply fan, which I just replaced.

Scratch that, it's still happening. Whether I'm playing a demanding game or just browsing the net listening to music.

This didn't happen before I reformatted the thing, and I just saw that there were 50 optional updates I have yet to install, so I'm trying that and googling some other stuff.

Is there a tool or anything I can run to check for potentially damaged hardware, just in case? Or some general kind of diagnosis program?

I should say that when it freezes, it doesn't blue screen or anything. It just stops altogether and I have to power off/on it again. It gave a blue screen only ONCE out of the 30 or so times it's crashed now. The error it gave at that time was "Clock interrupt not received."

I'd post this in the /mt/ help desk thread but it seems super dead.
>> No. 22578 [Edit]
>>22576
Already ran memtest on the machine? Booting up on a LiveCD and watching if it keeps stable might help ruling out drivers and software-related issues as the cause of the problem.

And about the /mt/ thread, have you considered that perhaps it's dead because nobody has asked for help there in a while?
>> No. 22579 [Edit]
>>22578
I haven't. I'll do that now, thank you.
>have you considered that perhaps it's dead because nobody has asked for help there in a while?
Yes, but I also figured that because the board overall is much slower than /ot/, that less people would be checking there for new replies.

Pass completed, no errors.

This website helped me a lot. I love the idea that the Internet is the next step in evolution, and that this network of formless "people" is so tangible, so blatant and embedded in our consciousness now, and yet so hard to grasp, as if the Internet really were a higher power that we are incapable of fully comprehending.
Lain is definitely difficult. Impenetrable, cryptic, convoluted beyond belief. It takes time to come to any satisfying conclusion. Everybody takes something different away from it.

>>22591
I played Portal 2 with my sister mid-last year. She doesn't normally play video games, but I insisted Portal was worth her time. We had a lot of fun (well.. I had a lot of fun laughing at her frustration, anyway. I'd long since completed the game).
Made her watch Cowboy Bebop and Kino's Journey after she told me she'd seen Death Note and loved it around the same time. Right now I've loaned her some 3D stuff. The Wire, Breaking Bad and a bunch of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (a new favourite of hers, and blatant indication that she's a relative of mine).

I love my sister. I don't think I've ever told her that since we haven't really been talking for long, but I ought to sometime. She's on her way to shutting herself inside just like me now that she's in her second year of high school. Maybe I should talk to her more, try and instil something positive.

The first Armored Core.

Things that made it not enjoyable for me:

- Aiming is sluggish, L2 to aim up and R2 to aim down is really awkward.
- Because of the above, the game gets really difficult because you have to struggle with the controls but the AI doesn't.
- At least half of the stages have no music for no apparent reason.
- Some of the stages are incredibly irritating, such as a mandatory stage (game over on failure, rather than taking you back to the mission selection screen with new missions) with platforming, with those awful controls and the platforms themselves shooting at you.
- When it's not too hard, it's too easy.

I would rather play Front Mission, as it does the two things from AC that I did enjoy right (plot and mecha customization) without all the things I disliked.

IRC (and group chats in general) aren't really my thing, and imageboards have gotten awfully boring, lately. Though /vr/ is nice, it's awfully slow.

Don't really know what to say. I was sort of in the same position of listening to music and f5ing image-boards all day when I wasn't playing a game I would get sick of or watching anime.

Then I was forced onto the IRC to ask a mod a question and ended up just staying, it's given me a lot more to do and filled a hole inside of me that was probably there from lack of socializing, which is something humans unfortunately have to do since we are social creatures. Image-boards are nice and all, but T-C as we all know it is very slow, and any other image-board is bound to be filled with Ford Drivers and other things I try to escape from.

I found out that a certain VN with a female lead I'm rather fond of got a mobile remake (???), and she was completely redesigned, to the point of unrecognizability. Not upset, just really confused. Maybe I'm misunderstanding something.

I finally went back to university after failing to kill myself last semester. My therapist said that it might help if I had some friends, so I tried talking to a 3DPD who sat next to me in a class.

She seemed really nice and she was struggling with the material so I offered to help her in the library later that day. She agreed and I gave her my number to text in case something came up.

Then I waited for a fucking hour in the rain while she blew me off without even letting me know.

I checked out all of the songs but need to relisten to most of them, but the one that caught my attention the most was 'Under the water it glowed' from Eluvium, such a haunting, beautiful ambient piece, so I downloaded the rest of the album and it was very good, the clarinet on 'There wasn't anything' felt a bit forced though. 'Zerthis' was fucking mind blowing. The weird thing about that album is at first you are like 'alright cool' then the song gets stuck in your head and you keep coming back and it becomes more and more haunting each time. I'll check out some of the rest later meanwhile here is some of the stuff I've been getting into, although I'm more at the tip of the iceberg than you are with a lot of these genres so you may know some of these already:

Such great ambience in the form of post-rock, the beginning ambient segments can be boring for the impatient but the part at the end makes it worth it and the other stuff builds on you over time. Really haunting stunning masterful track (and album).

I'm sure you already know this one, very moving track, sort of like floating in warmth and peace, but sort of gives off a feeling of loneliness too.

Very physcedilic song, who needs drugs when stuff like this exists.

Fun song, very dancey. Not much more to say.

One of the best albums I've heard recently, utterly unique.

There's more but I think that's good enough for now.

>You should avoid women though, they're all out to harm and destroy you.

Indeed, just stick with 2D.

Yeah, Eluvium is fantastic. His other albums are the same kind of stuff, except for Similes which has vocals, and is a lot... "warmer" I'd say.

Haruhispeed I need to look into, I remember having them in my library at some point but never got around to listening to them much.

Slowdive also rings a bell, another discography to download!

You've probably heard of Mogwai and Grails by now, but if you haven't and you're a fan of post-rock, you owe it to yourself.

One other artist I forgot to recommend, Worrytrain. Ambient, electronic, neo-classical, noise. Haunting is honestly the best word I could use to describe his work.

When you go on a niche site that hates women with a small user base and are surprised that people actually hate women you are retarded. It's like going into a Chinese restaurant and being surprised when they serve Chinese. It would be like going to I don't know let's say a religious site and saying 'I really hate thoz satan worshiperz amiright guys am i fittin in yet' Point is it's obvious when the rules are full of anti-3D rules and people constantly talking about hating women and a fucking board dedicated to loving 2D women that this site has no interest in that kind of thing and popular opinion will be that 3D is to be avoided and is shit. The nice thing about the internet is you can find like minded people easier.

This is /fb/ material so mods feel free to delete my post the guy is probably just looking for reactions anyways and I couldn't help but take the bait.

Alright I'll let you know what I think, also it would be nice to hear what you think of the stuff I recommended. My Bloody Valentine - Loveless is another one I'm listening to right now, it's actually admittedly my first vinyl rip I've tried. Apparently £250,000 went into the production of this album so it deserves the best quality.

I thought this site was for NEETs and otaku, at least it was back when I started posting here (when AnonIB hikki board went down several years ago).

>The nice thing about the internet is you can find like minded people easier

Thats why your type of posting is dangerous. Some of you young guys are obviously going through an awkward phase where you decide that you hate women, fine, but I think you are doing real damage by broadcasting these stupid ideas and creating an echo chamber.

>I think you are doing real damage by broadcasting these stupid ideas and creating an echo chamber.

The only place I broadcast it is here it's not like I go onto other websites and preach how 2D is the way to go or something.

>Some of you young guys are obviously going through an awkward phase

Stop assuming things, 90% of the people here are in their 20s.

>I thought this site was for NEETs and otaku, at least it was back when I started posting here

It is my understanding that the site was originally created for people in waifu threads on /a/ to have a place to talk and escape from Ford Drivers. It is yes a place to discuss otaku things and yes a large section of these people happen to be NEETs since hikki otaku losers are likely to not have jobs. But it is also popular opinion here that 3D is shit, Ford Drivers constantly butting in with that stuff and saying things like you are saying now and not letting us discuss our waifus and otaku things in peace is one reason the site was created in the first place. Waifu threads would be full of people coming in and ridiculing us calling us stuff like you are doing now or saying we are batshit insane. So this site was created to run away from that, and it pisses me off that these people follow us here.

But once again this is really becoming meta-shit now so if you want to argue back with something just do so on /fb/ otherwise I will see you don't have the respect or decency to do this and don't care enough to try to prove your point and I'll assume you are just another troll who decided to make fun of 'those guys with the anime wifes.' The fact that you are using reaction images ridiculing us and acting clueless about something that is stated clearly in the rules and is a well known fact around here and was just discussed recently on /fb/ shows me that you are just looking to get reactions out of people.

Each email service and domain registrar/DNS provider's going to have its own web application thingy for doing it. Basically the email service will give you one or more host names that you take to the DNS provider and add them to a table of DNS records. Then you go back to the email provider and tell them your domain. Any remotely popular service is going to have guides for this stuff.

You must've not read any of the homeless threads in /so/, but the homeless do not want food, they want money. Food is given out by Christians and other such people, so that isn't a problem.

Aside from TC, most homeless people are out there because of some sort of drug addiction though. I see them everywhere in downtown Orlando blocking sidewalks and shit. Some dude was even holding up a sign saying he needed money for whiskey and drugs.

Hard to say what they've gone through in order to start taking serious drugs. When the situation never gets better, or simply becomes worse and worse no matter the effort, any kind of person will break at some point. They might've fought valiantly for quite a while. I hope you'll keep that in mind.

I was on a train a few days ago. It was nice to just relax in the big city where you're just a faceless being in the crowd, you just blend in. I feel very much at home in huge cities and large crowds, it gives anonymity.

Homelessness is a very complicated issue and I think it irresponsible to make such a stark catch-all statement as "they should be rounded up and murdered".

I went walking for the first time in a while. Since I've already seen all of the area around where I live, and because it was raining, I decided to walk around the unused property of a quarry that is nearly next door. The gate was locked so to avoid being seen jumping over, I went a secret route through a hole in a wire fence in the forest. I ended up finding out I live next to a river and didn't know it. I also was startled by a turkey in the middle of a quiet gravel forest path when he fly past me. After that I came across a spider web around a yard long with a large spider in the center, which scared me, but I thought nothing of it once I ran past. It turns out that there are hundreds of spiders like that in the forest, and for the next 2 hours I was dodging and running past spider webs. In the end the path was just a large circle and I got home soaking wet. I'm currently sick from being in the rain so long then coming inside. I think I'll avoid forest from now on.

Normally I would NEVER, EVER, EVER say this, because I hate phycologists and I think any stupid doctor would diagnose everyone on this website as batshit insane for loving fictional characters or/and being a hiki, and I think being abnormal in this way does not make a person insane. But I think if it comes to the point of hurting yourself or others (and not even just suicide, the desire to escape reality in that way is a bit more understandable) you should really consider getting help somehow before you do serious damage. If you have it under control somehow/know what you are doing then don't listen to me but for all you know it could turn from pencils to knives.

I also have anger problems sometimes but not to that extent, usually I just feel the need to throw my anger onto an object, as in banging my fist on the keyboard, throwing something nearby against the wall, etc. Too often have I given my anger gratification and now it expects the instant gratification of releasing my energy onto something else, I need to learn how to chill when I feel this way. And even then, I hardly ever get that mad anymore usually only when I get mad at a video game otherwise with other stuff I usually only get annoyed/irritated.

Does punching a pillow not help with the heavy breathing thing, breaking something, thinking of calm things, nothing? It absolutely must be hurting yourself?

I was in the metro today and halfway to my cousins apartment this dirty unwashed hippie got in and handed out flyers to everyone. he called himself a street artist and asked us to read his poems. he smelled like drugs, too. the "poems" were 2 lines long and were all the same- TV is bad, politicians are corrupt, cops are evil, etc. I got upset so I stood up and ask him how he can possibly call himself a poet when all his poems were so short. he told me there are no established rules in poetry or something, I wasn't really paying attention so I don't remember. I called him a hack and said he probably only writes poetry because he can't play music or paint. he told me "that's just your opinion" which made me very angry (seriously, thats probably the laziest rebuttal ever) so I took the pile of flyers from his hands and threw it away. I thought he was going to hit me but he just looked at me and then started picking them up from the floor. I told him he's never going to improve and become a real artist if he can't take criticism and that he should write about the real issues, then called him lazy and untalanted and pretentious other stuff. since he didn't answer me I just kept calling him names. at one point the other passangers started shouting at me, so I had to get off, I was still ways from my cousins and had to call my mom to pick me up. shitty day. why did he just stand there without responding? was he trying to provoke me? I don't get people really

I got home today after spending nearly a week at my dad's place house sitting for him. this was after a very short return to my home after spending another few days over there. and unfortunately there's no internet access there.

I guess I should start at the beginning. something like two weeks ago I got a call out of the blue from my father who wanted me to work a security job for him (first time he's ever asked me to do anything like this) he told me over the phone that he was evicting some of his tenants and wanted me around in the unlikely even that they cause some trouble. He also said he may want me to stay a night or two there and would pay me $100 a day. sounded easy enough. my mom was able to barrow a security guard uniform from a friend and I headed over there Monday morning (8/26/13). When I showed up and found out he had something like 7 other guys with him and started giving me the run down it became apparent things were a lot more serious than the phone call had led me to believe. anyways...

we go to the house and I knocked on the door, no response. my dad tells us to head around the side/back where he opened the door and had me go in with him as he yelled 'marshal' a few times. (I think he wanted them to think it was the cops) we make our way into the garage where a cholo and a older lady confront us. as in instructed by my father before hand I told them they were being evicted and asked them to leave. the guy started getting angry and arguing with my dad. I think it was when my father yelled at him to "get out now!" that the guy(danny) took a swing at him, and they started fighting. keep in mind I was standing next to my dad at this point but started backing away as best I could, but the garage was really cramped as it had a car in it at the time. the lady fell down and hurt herself which really set off the cholo guy(Danny) my father managed to hit the garage door button and we made our way out in front of the house. Apparently my father broke one of his left pinky while defending one of the guy's punches but got a good hit in himself. (me and my uncle were under the impression he broke it while punching the guy) My uncle was able to land a punch in the side of the guy's face but that just pissed him off more. (I should add that my dad & uncle both visit the gym daily and are skilled in martial arts) I saw my father in a fighting stance egging on the guy while chasing him off "I'm a old man!! hit me! hit me!! I'll rip off your balls and grind them up you little prick!" as the guy said something like "this guys crazy yo, get away from me!".
The lady was saying something about children in the house, so me and my dad went in and seemed a kid was still in the bathroom so my father proceeded to start kicking the door down until he exited.
when we exited the house the older lady tried pulling out a cellphone and my dad wrestled it out of her hands threw it to the ground and stomped on it as she screamed "my phone!"


I didn't see it, but the guy apparently pulled a pocket knight on my dad. cut him a bit on his arm but dropped the knife and I'm guessing it got kicked into the street.
Seemed as if the guy was scared off, but he simply realized he couldn't fight head on. The movers my father brought with him started clearing out the house as the guy grabbed some of the items and started throwing them at people somewhat indiscriminately. I gave the helpers a hand as my father yelled to get everything moved out quick. out of nowhere I got hit in my arm by some exercise equipment (black thing in image 1). and noticed the guy throwing items at us. He also hurt one of the of the movers who ran off soon after (got hit in the leg with the chrome thing in image 1). my uncle was able to use a coffee table as a shield from some flying ten pound wights, one of which penetrated that table a good distance and left a large impression (image 2&3). the guy called the police while telling them he was planing on shooting us all if he had a gun (probably not a good idea)
Someone asked me to stand over the knife in the street so he couldn't get to it again, soon after the guy stole a gardening hoe from a neighbor (image 4)and came at me with it while making threats, but I stood my ground over the pocket knife and managed to talk the guy down.

Something like 5-6 police cars a firetruck and an ambulance showed up, they asked a few of us what happened and took the guy away for brandishing the knife. The spot I got hit created a very large lump and the paramedics gave it a quick look over, asked me if I wanted to get it looked at but I told them I had no insurance or anything and declined but they gave me a ice pack and told me it was free.
The guy(danny) left his plaid shirt behind and my dad took it as a trophy. he also gave the older lady and the kid till 5pm to get their stuff off the drive way/front lawn before he'd dispose of it. The lady couldn't drive and her sister had somewhere they needed to be, they were only able to take what they could fit in a single uhaul truck and left a lot of stuff behind which was either tossed out or taken by us.
I was able to get a BBQ grill out of it which I gave to my mom, a bused dell Inspiron laptop, and a ps3 guitar controller(which turned out needed a pricy replacement dongle)
I tried recording the incident with a hidden camera but most of the video ended up being just sky, so it's mostly just audio.

My dad asked me to hang around for a few days at the now empty house in case they came back to watch over the house. I kept a little pepper spray bottle on me almost contently and kept an eye out for any suspicious cars. each one made me a bit more nervous than the last. my father and the group of people he brought quickly started repairs on the house, filling holes in the walls and so on. one of the reasons my dad wanted to forcibly evict them rather than let the law run it's course was to prevent them from doing even more damage to the house.
I slept in a closet the first night on a hard lump thing (image 6). got maybe 3-4 hours of sleep. I barracked myself in one of the rooms. kept a mattress in front of the door and over the window so even if they tried to kick in one of the doors it would be hard and at least give me a chance to call the cops or something. having my dad around with loaded guns didn't help much, knowing him he could just as well use one on me. we've never exactly been close...

next morning police showed up with a tow truck to haul away a stolen car that was abandoned across the street, probably related. my dad was completely convinced the people in this house were drug addicts. Not much else happened after that. I mostly kept near the living room window keeping an eye on the street/walkway while watching anime on my laptop. (image 5)
In the end I got $500 for the stay, and bought $100 worth of figs almost as soon as I got back. He asked me to go back for a few days, thought the worse was probably past and repairs complete. never saw the tenants again but there was still hard work to be done such as replacing all the carpets and my dad had me help with that which was kinda lame but I got another $200, which my mother took for debt bills almost as soon as I got back.
Haven't been able to sleep might the last week becuase of my arm which really hurt to sleep with and is still sore even now.

He asked me to spent some more time over there while he goes on a vacation on some curse ship for two weeks, biggest ship in the world or something I don't really care... work on the house should be done by then, and he wont be around which should make things peaceful so I'll give it a go. Probably gonna have to gather some more mods before then, our current mods proved to be unreliable and I was greeted by reports of dicks and 3dpd when I got back.

Everyone he knew told him to go the legal root, but he didn't care. For one, the longer they stayed there the more damage they would do. when we arrived they had already started kicking and stabbing holes into walls and braking things like cabinets and toilets along with ruining the carpet. and that was light, I've been with him to houses that were completely trashed. he's been in the business a long time and owns 13 homes, people -never- move out and leave the houses in the condition they were received.
Another reason for the forced eviction was the fact that as stated he owns 13 homes all in the same neighborhood. He didn't want others to think they could get away with doing the same. Of course I pointed out that was a double edged sword, and he might scare off his current tenants. But he claimed he didn't need people like that.
He also claimed they were drug addicts and didn't want people like that living in his property, but I saw nothing to support this claim.

While I agree my dad is a douche, taking advantage of the legal system to screw over property owners like him is a douche thing to do itself. I would say these self entitled assholes who think it's alright to screw over people who have more than them are the real douches. My dad gave the person living there four months to pay her rent before forcing her out. It wasn't that she couldn't afford it, she was just trying to screw over my father. During those four months she prioritized all other bills. shortly after the eviction someone from the gas company showed up to turn their gas back on and the day after that someone from the cable company showed up to install a satellite dish. I should also note that at no time during or after the eviction did the tenants offer to pay the rent. I had to watch as my father(63) worked on his hands and knees doing hard tiring work from 6am to night with cuts and a broken finger to repair what they did. I'm sorry if I don't sympathies with a violent cholo who hit me with gym equipment and attacked my father and uncle with a pocket knife. The guy wasn't even living there and none of the things in that house belonged to him from what the lady and her kid told me.


I should also add that my mother has tried renting out a second property to people who actually were drug addicts. She went the legal root to get them out, and the house was wrecked. tools and materials she bought to repair the place were stolen from the property, and the house was burned to the ground not long after. and no she didn't have insurance on it.

I unerstand where your family came from - my grandmother had issues with renting her old house to some people she knew from church. She doesn't have as many as your father does though, only one. She gets stressed out over little things about her house which I don't notice. Then again she lived in the place for liek 30 -40 years so she'd notice it more. I showed her this video to show how it could be 'worse' for her: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eQvN0eqkTg&list=FLIbDxO9dQDs1C24U_Wb1gMw&index=16

How long does it take to evict someone in Southern Cali? I know in, for example Chicago they wil not evict you until the next spring if winter is approaching due to the whole 'throwing people on the cold'. As in the county clerk will put it on hold. Ditto with cutting off utilities.

>>22845
>people -never- move out and leave the houses in the condition they were received.

Did he think of paying them to move out quickly? I know some guy mentioned a friend did that on city-data and it worked to some extent.

>. I'm sorry if I don't sympathies with a violent cholo who hit me with gym equipment and attacked my father and uncle with a pocket knife. The guy wasn't even living there and none of the things in that house belonged to him from what the lady and her kid told me.

From his POV a bunch of people went to gang up on an old lady who was a friend of his and her child or nephew and wanted to throw them out and were also probably posturing aggressively/trying to intimidate them. Some people get really defensive about stuff like that.

interesting video. yeah I've been with him to some real disaster holmes. One house he fixed up like new and sold got put up for sale a year after he sold it and we took a look out of curiosity, they filled up the backyard's swimming pool with cement and didn't bother to even it out but were nice enough to leave hand prints and their names written all over it. they also knocked a massive hole in one of the walls, looked like they were trying to make one room into two. it was a damn shame becuase it was a really nice place before.

My dad was saying it could take 6 months or more to legally evict someone. and yes actually my dad said he offered them $2,000 to leave after the first month or two. Just to avoid having to repair all the damage he knew they'd cause and get someone in there quickly who would pay their rent without any hassle.

And yes I can understand his POV if that was the case. He kept claiming that we hit the lady although I saw no such thing. My father however was convinced that the tenets were tipped off about the eviction and guy was there to guard the house. he also thinks the kid was there at the time for a similar reason since he really should have been in school at the time. but of course that's all speculation.

Didn't get a job I applied for, thanks to the ineptitude of one Manager.

I was interviewed for a job at Pizza Hut more than two weeks ago. It went about as well as it could have gone, what with my non-existent work history and horrendous speaking skills, but this place is desperate for delivery drivers. The lady Manager told me to expect a call within the week. Here's where things get hairy.

A week passes, and nothing. I go in store and inquire, and get told to expect the call within the next "few days". Okay, fair enough. They're busy, not everything can go to plan, peaks and valleys, etc. etc. Another week passes.

I wait 9 days, and today I finally decided to go in again and ask about what in fuck's name was supposed to be happening here. I'm then told that the Manager had tried to contact me multiple times through the homephone number that I listed, but since nobody picked up she left it alone and assumed I was unavailable for the position. She left NO MESSAGES. IT'S LIKE THIS STUPID CUNT DOESN'T UNDERSTAND THE LIMITED FACULTIES OF A HOMEPHONE. SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN PROMPTED TO LEAVE A MESSAGE BY THE MACHINE, WHY WOULDN'T SHE LEAVE A MESSAGE?

And just to make it hurt even worse, the other pizza place in town, my backup plan, told me that they had filled their delivery driver position less than a week ago. If I wasn't sitting around waiting for a fucking phonecall that had already happened I might have been able to land this other job instead. Now I'm left with nothing. Now if I want a job I have to eat shit and like it, I have to get up in the mornings and jump through hoops and be a TEAM PLAYER.

In other news, I'm playing Tsukihime and Final Fantasy VI. I feel pretty deflated after this job fiasco though, so I'll probably end up buying a bunch of cheap wine and getting drunk for a week before I get back to either of them.

Last night I had some chest pains. I had them for a while so I thought that I was having heart problems. Since I was really worried this time, I walked to the ER and they checked me out; it turns out my heart is fine, I just have GERD (I had Mexican food with my Dad a couple of years earlier). That is why only my right arm hurt and not my left, which is typical of heart disease.

The nurse was able to tell that I was on the Schizophrenia spectrum. That was interesting; at least she didn't think that I had Asperger's.

I feel very relieved because I was worried about my heart for a while, and now I know what my problem is. But I still feel like my health is deteriorating and I feel like a fat shit (I' not fat, I just have a slightly large belly).

I'm on SSI and Medicaid so fortunately it won't cost much, if at all.

Every now and them I'll get heart-pain that shows up and sticks around off and on for a few days, along with some swelling around my left armpit, and I just ignore it really. Feels like a pressure or squeezing feeling. I'm not one bit over-weight though, I think it's a form of inflamation.

It's from lack of exercise or when I eat to much salt hopefully, I throw out some punches with my left arm and walk around for a while until it feels better, but it tends to come back if I sit back down again.

To be honest I don't trust doctors as far as I could throw them. I literally have no faith in their competency because I have seen unbelievable amounts of malpractice, incompetence, or otherwise rude or careless behavoir.

Just because a doctor told you it was GERD does not mean you should believe them or accept it automatically, but rather take it as food for thought.

I don't ever bother going to the doctors for anything anymore. If I went there describing this problem, they wouldn't do shit and I'd probably just leave that place with them telling me it's anxiety induced or whatever bullshit they feel like saying to get around the fact that they don't know the answer.

It's very frustrating when you are stupid and cannot do anything about it. I have been on the internet for over a dozen years and still managed to get my machine seriously infected. I don't know anything about software or hardware either because I can't seem to piece together simple concepts. I also panic and get really desperate when something goes wrong with my computer or internet, so today was fairly stressful.

Now I will have to spend a day reformatting and getting everything back to how it was. At least there will be less clutter and better performance afterwards.

Heh me too, today the PC wouldn't turn on and just made an obnoxious beeping noise, talking with the tech expert of IRC revealed that it was because of bad ram so now I had to take one of my ram deals out and am left with only 2gb ram. While I was trying to get it to work during the beeping noises I really started panicking and realizing without the PC I don't have hardly anything to live for, which was like a slap to my face. Music, anime, friends, my waifu, entertainment, without the PC this all disappears. It's the gateway to the world I am escaping to.

I was thinking about suicide earlier today.

Assuming you were planning to die, how would you tie up all the loose ends before leaving?

I'd probably leave my mom a looong list telling her how much every single one of my figurines is worth (and why), where to sell them, how to spot scammers, etc. I have some rare video games as well.

then I'd have to clean my room and wipe my hard drive.

leaving her a list of my online accounts (paypal, amazon, amiami, gmail, etc) and their passwords too could be a good idea.

I asked steam support about this and they told me they can't delete my account, and that if I "threaten" to kill myself again they'll get my billing address and contact my local police station, so I guess I'll just have to remove all the wapanese stuff from my profile and set it to private instead... bummer

I'd also have to check google and see if there's any pre-2005 stuff that can be linked to my real identity, just in case, and see if there's a way to delete it. Probably not, but changing the associated email addresses should be enough. I didn't know much about net safety back then, and fortunately I didn't have to learn the hard way, but still. The last thing I want is my face on the newspaper next to a 10 year old post from Neopets or Newsgrounds

I don't trust doctors either; they've made a few mistakes with me. My own father is a doctor and he was really no exception.

However, they did hook me up to an EKG and then they took blood samples to the lab, so there is a good chance that I don't have heart problems. The doctor seemed knowledgeable as well, so while I don't entirely trust him, I do think he is more right than wrong.

Usually you can tell when someone is a quack. I didn't get that from him.

For in the under 100 range they are pretty good, I started with ones like that then moved up to audio technica athm50 then to beyerdynamic dt770 and I am therefore becoming a huge audiophile.

What kind of music do you listen to? This can be an important aspect for deciding what you want.

Also googling the specs on these now you may need a good sound card to be able to get these to high volumes because the impedance is fairly high.

If your financial situation is dire enough that you'd have to start saving to be able to $60 headphones, I'd advise against it until your financial situation is less dire.

Unless you're blowing half a grand or more on your rig, an external headphone amplifier isn't worth the money and the budget is better allocated on the headphones.

I had to go outside and buy blank CDs. A guy followed me into the store and accosted me, sounded and looked either mentally disabled or on something. I couldn't really follow what he was saying, it was slow and disjointed. First it sounded like he had some kind of issue with me. Then he said he needed some money. I realized oh, he's a panhandler, I can give him money and he'll go away. So I did, and he did. Afterwards it occurred to me that that might have been an affected role to induce that reaction. If that is the case, it's pretty interesting and I don't mind having wasted the money to see it.
Or he could have just been retarded or drug addled, which is boring.
Also the knowledge that I look like an easy mark is interesting. I'm going to try to be more conscious of body language now to see why this is so.

I don't feel very well, /ot/.

I woke up already tired and it hasn't got any better. My muscles shake at the slightest effort; I can barely stand and now I breath heavily while all my joints hurt (I'm having a sweet time on my fingers just by typing right now). It's damned hot outside but I'm starting to feel cold (I seem to have a little fever; took some Ibuprofen); however, I have no stomach ache to indicate intoxication.

I've been hiding it from my family cause I don't want to worry them (it's not unusual at all for them to see me lock in my room the entire day). Also, I don't wanna go the hospital: I have no health insurance and the public service here is terrible anyway; they'd just put me to wait with the others until I either collapse or give up, or even misdiagnose me (no joke, I've been through all that with my mom several times before).

I'll try to go back to sleep now (mid-afternoon here). I'm sure it's nothing: I'll just rest and I might get better; though I'd like to know what it is.

So I found out that my window in my new room is apparently broken. I put some nails into into the thing so that it couldn't slide up. I did that a couple of days ago. Today, I check it to see if the nails were still holding up and apparently they are gone. I mean they couldn't have fallen off since I wanted them to hold up, so I screwed them in tightly into the wooden frame, but even around the window they're completely missing.

I have no idea how severe this situation is, due to many walking shit stains have been in this trailer due to how simple my mother's thinking is, so I have no idea who I am dealing with and just what they want exactly. I know that they've been in my room before, since the only way to get the nails out was to unscrew them from the inside of my room, and nothing is missing as far as I know. I have no idea if I'm on surveillance or not and I have no idea how to remedy myself of this.

I'm not ready at all to deal with this kind of person or situation.

What the hell, man? Have you told your mother about how the window's been broken? If she owns the trailer that ought to be relevant to her interests.

There's not much you can do about uninvited guests if your mother owns the place and lets them in, I suppose. So somehow getting your mother to do something about the trailer being fucked with would be the only way out of this, if that's possible.

Also, it doesn't necessarily need to be your mother/the owner doing the job - if you can get legal permission from the owner/whoever's in charge to act on their behalf in cleaning out shitstains and securing the place, you could do it, too. But that may or may not be viable depending on the details of your situation.

Been thinking about buying a 3DS now that Phoenix Wright 5 is out. Better yet, there's an auction with those Animal Crossing 3DS XL bundles on local ebay. And it's 200 Euro each, the launch price was 220 and I saw people resell them for like literally 400$ back in August. Dirt cheap considering those circumstances.

But like with everything but books I kinda feel it's a waste to buy one because I'll kill myself any day now.

I did tell my mother about it. She worried about it for a bit but then lost interest some way along the day. I did, however, put a bunch of nails and these clamp-like things for the window and this window curtain pole that my mom had given me that night.

The good news is that the window had in fact been opened from the outside, so my worst fears of some well equipped guy with more knowledge than me was thrown out of the window (so to speak), as I actually investigated during the day and saw that the nails were broken and the heads had been completely broken off. I mean, the threat is still there, but now I know that I'm dealing with someone on a lesser level. Which would make sense since I think that the highest amount of money I've ever held in my hands throughout my entire life is only $350-$380. Then again, I've noticed nothing to be stolen (I haven't looked and I still feel too lazy, but I'll be very upset and angry when I find out what's missing) so either the person who broke in was somebody looking for something good and decided to call it off since it wasn't possible to search the other rooms due to me putting an outside lock for my door or was unable to take anything of good value since the window is a bit too high off the ground and decided to bide his time until another opportunity, or it was my shitty brother and his friends trying to get inside but not being able to due to the locks on the door (my mother's disinterest at the subject does kind of point to this if it were revealed to her by said piece of shit brother), or it could be some pervert trying to find some 3DPD to rape them in their sleep or something. There are a bunch of scenarios that can fit, but it'd be too foolish to assume one of those so the only thing I can really do is set up these anti-measures and hope that they'll last me whenever it occurs again. I want to set up some bear traps, but I'm sure that an accident is waiting to happen where I'll be found liable.

Apparently my state has a law where I can defend myself in case of intruders, so I think that I'm okay in the eyes of the law, but I'm not really sure what to expect, so I'll keep my tools close by and use them as weapons if I am to find myself in a position where my fists alone won't be suitable for the situation.

That is exactly what I'm talking about. During the summer I had my internet taken away from me, so I ended up doing this almost every single day as opposed to just once every month or so. It feels really nice sometimes, albeit really empty. I did not find anybody to spend some of my life with during those two months of searching. Still, through the experience, I learned this city well, and determined for myself that it's not a good idea to stay here. The problem is deciding on where to go, but even moreso, where to get money. I'm also afraid that this situation might not be resolved even in another place. All this is secondary to daily torment of feeling absolutely alone, though.

>>23224
That's interesting, I'm happy that there are others out there who do the same thing. I have sometimes had those thoughts while wandering, about other people doing the same thing as me at that very same time someplace else in the modern world. It's a bit tragic since we probably wouldn't be able to identify each other unless it was made extremely obvious in some way. I know that nobody would be able to tell anything about my life from the physical appearance I select to present to the outside world. Maybe I walk in a strange way but just don't notice it... that's about it. I always wear a backpack too, even if there is nothing in it, so it would probably seem like I am actually going someplace and have something important to do.

It just seems so futile, taking into account how much searching I've done with no results but some very minor but pleasant memories of stumbling into an interesting place I've never been in before. But even that is covered with a veil of meaningless and emptiness in the end.

Yes, I think that's pretty much key in order to get completely unknown people to talk to you. Back when I was a metalhead I had people starting conversations with me by commenting on the band whose t-shirt I was wearing and stuff, met some nice folks because of that.

I had a dream today.

In it I was an investigator / detective who visited a town where allegedly a lot of strange, supernatural kind of stuff was happening. Apparently it had to do with the devil or demons, or something along those lines.

I was scheduled to interview two women about it. My memory of the dream has a lot of holes, so I only remember certain episodes from it. I don't remember how I arranged the interview or how I got there, so here's the next bit that I remember:

I'm standing at the doorstep of her house, waiting for her to open. She opens the door and invites me in. She's a shortish girl; looks about 23, but it's hard to determine her age. The inside of her house looks very cramped and unusual. The walls are made out of metal, and it looks like the inside of some tube. She then tells me she lives inside a ventilation shaft so that "they" can't find her. It kind of makes sense. The ceiling is too low for me to stand upright, so I have to lean forward to fit in. Her whole "home" consists of three small rooms (of which one is a bathroom) joined by a hallway of sorts in which we are now. She leads me into the room on the left to show me some thing. It looked like a water pump, or a water filter. While showing me this undoubtedly very important thing, she got something on her clothes, and said she had to change. She went into the bathroom and started taking off her clothes. For some reason, she took off her pants and underwear, leaving the top on. Then she walked up to me and said "Shall we?". That was really unexpected. I didn't really feel like it, so I said "Can we do this instead?" and hugged her. That was the best part of the dream.

I found out that this is a thing (some guy shows up at the end, so 3D warning): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98BIu9dpwHU

For those that don't want to click a yt link, it's about Amazon Prime Air, which is when they send a helicopter drone to deliver a package directly to a house.

I'll keep it short and say that I think that it's somewhat ridiculous and probably will fail due to people stealing the packages or shooting them down or some shit where people ruin it for others.

I just thought that this might be a bit interesting.
>> No. 23341 [Edit]
>>23340
For Amazon Prime Air to fail? Quite possible, it probably will, along with most early adopters. For the whole drone delivery systems to fail? No way, it's not gonna get any more expensive, nor less profitable, and the(corporate) powers that be will be sure to make tampering with their drones/dronenets quite a risky enterprise.
As much as I don't like John Robb, he(and some of the commenters on his blog) has some interesting thoughts on the subject http://globalguerrillas.typepad.com/globalguerrillas/2013/01/dronet-think-interactive-tv-itv.html

>will fail due to people stealing the packages or shooting them down or some shit where people ruin it for others.
That was my first thought as well, but then I got to thinking that they'll almost certainly have tracking devices built into their drones. If you shoot one down they could just go to your house and slap you with a fine for doing it, or send the police. It's not like there isn't risk of people stealing packages/mail as is anyway. If anything I think you'd be better off knowing a package is 30 minutes away compared to a mailman dropping it off 2-8weeks after you order it and leaving it at your doorstep at who knows what time of day when you may not even be home, or leave it there when you are home without your knowing. I once had a $100+ large package sitting outside my house over the weekend becuase of that. I was lucky no one took it.

I mostly meant Amazon since today's technology isn't enough to 100% guarantee its protection, but in the future, they'll definitely be a thing.

>>23342
I think that it's more likely that they'll leave the packages on roofs and get caught in trees and such or some douche will just take them down for the sake of taking them out with nothing stopping him since he'll be smart enough to not get caught, but I do see where you are coming from and i do agree that the convenience of time does work as a safeguard since you are aware of it showing up within the day and pretty much prepared to receive it.

>>23351
Makes sense. I think that they'd try once there is access to some A.I that lets the thing make safe deliveries.

All in all, I'm somewhat surprised that this was shown now as opposed to when it'd actually be a viable thing. Maybe it's just so that Amazon can show up as the first with their fingers in the dish to say that they were first.

Well now that I have no pc of my own and I'm typing this from a computer in the basement I can't be on all the time I can't do much until it's fixed. And if it is fixed and I get it back with a new HD sometime hopefully soon I may need to redownload some music and anime that wasn't saved if the person working on it can save it. Then after that I just need to add everything from my external back on to it and remake my music library. But I'm pissed cause now my life is frozen till that's back and then building everything back to normal will be a major pain in the ass. I'll get the news tonight about what's up with that. Hoping for the best.

So tonight I'm throwing some frozen spring rolls in the oven and tagging along with my mother going shopping at the mall. May see if somewhere has some caffeine pills since choking down coffee is gross most of the time. I also have a few tokens here from the small arcade there to play a game of pinball with.

It's not at all about others but about myself.

I had my first kiss last night and I'm very confused.
I won't go into too much detail because I don't want to get banned but I've been a NEET for a few years now and the idea of kissing, making out, ecc. with another human being never really crossed my mind. All I wanted was to be left alone and mind my own business so this was a huge shock to me. The first thing that came to my mind when she grabbed me was "I'm being set up, this girl must be trans or something" but I checked and she wasn't. Then I thought maybe my step brother who was with me had given her money or something. I didn't fully understand what was going on. Maybe she lost a bet or she was just too drunk. It was pretty dark and there was a lot of smoke, she could have confused me with someone else too. I've had self esteem issues for a long time and I don't know what to make of this, maybe things aren't really all that bad? I'm also kind of disappointed because I would have wanted my first kiss to be more romantic, I don't really like the idea of a total stranger taking it away without saying anything but I guess I'll just have to live with it. Pic related, this was my reaction.

The week is finally over.

AND THE TSA AGENT JUST FUCKING WATCHED.

I had to bend the hard drive bay back to how it should be, the aluminium was bowed out to the point where it couldn't physically hold any of the drives in the slots that they were suposed to.

On the bright side, the old, small Maxtor 250gig is still usable, the mobo recognized it as working, and the windows install disc recognized it as NTFS formatted... though completely empty. They really don't make things like they used to. And with Thailand's full recovery, HDD prices are back down to sane levels, I'll be able to buy a HDD bigger than the entirety of the data I lost for less than what I paid for the 500gig half a decade ago.

On the bright side, fiber optic internet sure is swell and dandy. I just hope some of those older shows that I had and was able to grab before bt removed the torrents are accesible in some way, and that I have time to watch them.

Was pretty sick today and yesterday. Woke up at 7, read the first 18 pages of Steppenwolf. Hesse’s prose felt very tedious, just like Narcisuss and Goldmund. The story has a decent premise. Went for a walk. Checked the store’s philosophy section before realizing that I had a few books I should read before I buy more. I am thinking of starting my little foray into phenomenology tomorrow. I might start with some lectures by Heidegger. Sat down for a read at the local café. Beside me there was a biology professor chatting very warmly with a female student who also bought him a coffee. I started dozing off and wondered what she was trying to get at. Those speculations and some depressing writings I read last night about essay mills and ghost-writing made me wonder if today’s academia is truly corrupt. Came home. Chatted with a few friends online. Still sick like before so I’m going to bed early.

Today I accidentally found that there was a piano on the ground floor of my apartment building. I played for about half an hour, my only audience being a young woman using one of the treadmills nearby. I had not played for two to three months. It was a cheap instrument. The keys were not particularly responsive, either. I played whatever came into my head and it was a mess of etudes, a ballade by Chopin and some sonatas. My technique had seriously decayed after months of negligence. The piano was poorly tuned and the sound was not very crisp, so a lot of mistakes were muffled up.

I'm probably going to go down there a few more times. Devote about two hours or so on a daily basis. It had been a long time since I was this motivated to play the piano.

I have a theory that right wing conservatism is really just an excuse for racism, exploitation and the like. People hold these anti-humanist beliefs first, and the politics of conservatism is built around it in order to justify it.

For example, some people might be anti-immigration. They don't want to invite any more asians, blacks and middle easterners to the country, so they campaign against immigration and say immigrants introduce culture and are welfare drains. Which isn't neccesarily wrong. But its just a coverup for the real reason why you want ethnics going in the country- because you're a racist.

Another issue with immigration is the vast majority of immigrants are leaving a country that they want to leave for a multitude of reasons (disease, economic disparity, culture problems). But then they turn around and make villages where they continue to practice the same culture that clogged the pipes with shit back home.

There are "good immigrants" too, who leave countries for Haruhi knows what reasons (who the hell would leave, say, New Zealand or Japan or Taiwan to live in the US?). And they make wonderful businesses in the US, and make great villages (some Chinatowns with HK and ROK people are wonderful, and Japan town and Little Tokyo are amazing, clean, and safe.)

But then you have the Latin slums around LA and any urban area, which just take the problems from Mexico and Central America and transplant them into colder climates. And then there's all the Koreatowns (like in LA and basically all up and down the east coast) that are absolute shift holes filled with old people loitering at McDonalds playing Go and nursing a $1 small coffee for 16 hours and kids spitting inside buildings, urinating in public, and literally just tossing garbage on the sidewalk, just as they do in Seoul.

Is it as lightweight as utorrent? I really don't like utorrent's ads as they sometimes slow down my seeding until I open the damn thing up just to look at them. There's also the barrage of 3DPD ads and I would like to seed without having to see that as much.

Well, I looked at the forums for qbtorrent and it seems to have a shit ton of bugs. How about you guys tell me your experience with it? That seems like a sensible and logical thing to do when recommending obscure programs to others.

Today I've went outside for a bit and studied what I could while organizing things for this week. What I really enjoyed was that the first signs of autumn are starting to show up: the wind has started to carry that strong and cold chill that autumn brings with itself whilst the sun and warmth of summer has still not gone away just yet; the clouds have ceased to form those towering formations that summer has and have begun to flatten in the sky like elastic sheets. This entire feeling of autumn really brings me back memories of the times I used to have friends and childhood times. I can arleady see myself becoming awfully sentimental and nostalgic throughout this entire season, but I guess it'll be a good season overall.

In Russian it was much funnier. She said:"Here I'm a prosecutor, so no nyash-myash!"

"Nyasha" is a slang world of Russian anime fandom, derivative from "nya", synonymous to "bishojo", "cute girl". So journalist said to Natalia, that internet users paint her pictures and call her "nyasha" And she reacted shyly...

And she has anime face and moe personality.

I got an xbox 360 controller to use with my computer. I got it because games that are better with controllers sometimes assume an xbox controller. It's okay, though there's a few things I don't like about it.

The default driver is full retard. Apparently, it behaves differently if the application is using DirectInput instead of the newer XInput. In DirectInput, the left and right triggers behave as directions on a single z axis. This means pressing both at the same time registers as no press at all. What the actual fuck. This is how ZSNES and snes9x behave. It is also how the configuration utility joy.cpl displays the configuration. So I had to install the xbcd driver.

The bumpers are in uncomfortable positions, which is why I wanted to use the triggers for SNES games. I guess that's why they're called bumpers, because they don't seem to be designed to let your fingers rest over them.

Other than these issues, it's a decent controller.

Okay, so I'm not fired yet. I already hate working. Not even because customers are often fucking stupid. It's just a pain in the ass, and for what? To live a life I can barely enjoy? I don't even work full time, just ~25 hours per week. I don't get how people work 40 a week and still want to live. The only reason I'm not killing myself is because I don't want to hurt my parents.

If you want a job, here are some protips:
-Call a day or two after applying, ask to speak to the hiring manager for the position you are applying for. Ask if you can meet him in person to give him your resume. This is the only time I got interviews. Managers hate work as much as anybody else, and would rather someone else do the work of calling. Also, you find out if you failed the personality test.
-Lie on the personality test. The manager doesn't see anything but a number from it. And the managers I talked to hinted that they don't even want to use it, but it's mandated by corporate. The tests don't respect you, the managers don't respect the tests, so you shouldn't either.
-References I assume will be a problem here. I was lucky in that my parents are rich and essentially sent me to a NEET (mental health) rehabilitation facility, which had a vocational services program that lets you work part-time for them to get some experience. Your best bet if you don't have any school references is probably getting a volunteer position at volunteermatch.org.

It mostly relates to past interests and occupation. Gaming, building, computers, books... marbles. Game boxes, gamecube, gameboy, PMP, CD's, PC's, PC parts, cables, plain old cardboard boxes and other miscellaneous stuff. There was a period in my life where I thought I'd be able to use everything I came by. That was of course a lie, I was basically taking in other people's trash, and now I'm throwing it away.

As for the keeps - basically everything I know is of need or value. Things I actually use, or know more or less will be of use in the near future. The maybes and nostalgia fuel goes in space efficient storage boxes. I have a couple of those now. I try to be as strict as possible now, I don't want to be owned by my stuff.

Holy schnikies, when did making an email account require so much information? You now need a cell phone number to make one, which just makes having multiple emails (for different purposes) almost impossible without throwaway numbers. I'm not even sure if it's possible to use one number for multiple accounts.

I also forgot my old email password, so there's that, too.
>> No. 24368 [Edit]

Yeah noticed that, but it's not all email providers that are doing it. there are still plenty that don't require that shit. You can still use a service like tenminute mail for crap you don't need long.

I woke up just now, and I can remember 4 of my dreams last night extremely vividly. I remember all the details from the dreams and I can easily create a connection as to why I dreamt these things. (Mostly after I saw weird shit on the internet) The 4 dreams were really weird and messed up, perverted even.

Short version:
In the first dream I was in Moscow and I was able to respawn after I died and I could fly. Everybody around me was just a normal human being. I was at a beach with a pier like the one in GTA V. I made fun of some random guy and he got mad and tried to shoot me. I proceeded to fly up in the sky so he could not hit me.
I then commited suicide just to shock him. From 400 meters height I let myself fall into water and die. I promptly respawned a few hundred meters south and flew to my dead body. 3 people were standing around my corpse that hit the water violently. I then decapitated my corpse, took a hammer and broke the skull of my dead body.
I then removed my dead, bleeding, gross brain and some random guy came up to me and wanted to eat it. I didn't see why not, so I gave him a cutting board and a kitchen knife. He cut my brain into 3 pieces, like a bread. The first slice he didn't eat (too much crust for his liking), but the second slice he ate. Meanwhile I was recording the whole fiasco with a video camera. The guy ate a slice of my brain and said "the taste is so-so" (quote from Elona)
I then also took a bite of one of the slices, it didn't really taste like anything, kinda watery with the taste of blood. Afterwards I went on Tohno Chan and uploaded the video I took to the "real life guro" board. Then I woke up.

I must have dreamt about eating brain because I read on wikipedia about diseases cannibals in West Africa sometimes get when they eat brain.


In another dream I was in "Nintendo Land". Nintendo Land was about three times as large as your average electronics store and it was a mix of a restaurant, a store for video games and the E3. You could try all the new games and consoles, like the new smash brothers. I must have dreamt about this because I've been watching some videos made by Rocco Botte recently where he was at E3 showing some of the stuff they were playing.
My family and I (consisting of Me, my little sister, my mother, my old buddy and some weird person who does not exist in real life (he constantly changed his appearance, and personality)) were eating in the restaurant part. Next to us there were some little kids eating with no adults. They were 7 - 12 years old, there were 7 of them.
Me, my buddy and the weird one went to the toilet. At this moment the weird one was a girl, about 14 years old, wearing a skirt with bright colors. We three went to the urinals to pee. The girl was standing next to me on the urinal and had a penis. She was peeing like the rest of us.
Suddenly one of the kids that were sitting next to us came out of a cabin and threw toilet paper with shit on it at me. I had shit all over my shirt and was fucking pissed to no end. I went to follow the little shit, caught him and beat him up. Then I also made him eat his own shit. 70% of the dream was just me beating him up and my family cheering on me. The weird one also was like a big brother (about 25 years old) to me at one point, he told me to beat him up because he couldn't.
Later, the kid's friends called an authority figure. The CEO of Nintendo Land. It was, I shit you not, the german entertainer Thomas Gottschalk. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Gottschalk
The kids told him I threw shit at him, they were lying. I went to him and said "Mister Gottschalk, this child threw shit all over my shirt" as I was pointing at my messy shirt.
Gottschalk saw the evidence sticking to my clothing and believed me, he then gave my a coupon for a free 3DS or something.

Now that I'm writing this down I realize how funny it is.
The 3rd and 4th dream blended into each other, it was like the one became the other over some time.

To make it short, in the third dream I installed Arch Linux on my old friend's laptop and showed him how to use it. We were at my home. Later we were in a theme park called "Phantasia Land". This is the actual name of a real german theme park, however it was nothing like in real life.
It was a theme park that was like the video game Final Fantasy X, as you progressed through the park you went through the same locations and chapters you also saw in the game. In the right order. I have never in my life played FFX before, only FFVI, so this was just plain weird.
My buddy with his laptop and I were eating something at a snack bar. Later his laptop got stolen and we had to go on a quest like in Final Fantasy to get his shitty laptop back because the security at the park wouldn't help us. I could explain more about the quest, but it is not very exciting. Most of the time we were flying on a magic carpet to escape from Sephiroth or something.

I'm not making any of this up, I have never dreamt so vividly before (except for lucid dreams, but those don't count) and these were some of the weirdest things I can imagine.

It really makes me wonder whether the jokes about virgins/losers having to carry virgin cards and register on a virgin list are really going to come true. Sort of like some kind of holocaust against losers.

I found a relatively young stray cat around my house. The cat is badly hurt on one leg, it can't walk properly.
I put water and food outside for the cat and she already ate a bowl - now it knows where it can get food. I want to catch her and bring her to a vet but the cat is still too shy and tries to run away when it sees me. I guess I have to wait a few days till the cat gets used to me.

why not setup a trap for it? like a basket rigged to fall on it.
>> No. 24456 [Edit]
>>24454
The cat could easily push the basket over to get out and would lose a lot of trust.

Obviously you put weights on top of it and it was just an example anyway. Don't you know anything about setting traps?

No, and that's why I'd rather not risk it.

The cat is not going to trust you unless it sees you putting the food in the bowl, you know.
>> No. 24470 [Edit]
>>24469
Thanks for the tip, but there's been a slight change of plan.
Looks like the cat has been missing for some time now and I'm going to the vet today to borrow a trap so I can catch it. After I caught the cat I'll send pictures of it to the guy who reported her as missing.
If it is his cat he'll take it of course and also pay for the vet bill, if it isn't his cat I might adopt it.

I didn't work on any of the RP stuff I promised myself that I would finish. I seriously wonder why I agree to GM things these days if all I do is shit out the bear minimum of something that qualifies as a session at the last moment. I lack the core motivation to actually work on anything, even the stuff I take joy in doing. Tomorrow will be different, surely.

I've learned how to fry an egg today. I then went to put my skills to test and fried an egg for a sandwich, which I did so flawlessly. I feel that my virility and independence has raised manyfold today due the acquiring of this skill.

"Life improvements" are just things other people think you (and by extension they) need. Stop listening to other people and be what you want to be. I don't care if that means having a 3DPD. Otaku path for life, forever.

Yesterday I caught the cat in a trap and brought it to the vet. It's not the cat that was reported missing because the gender is wrong.
The vet just called me and told me the cat has AIDS and has to be put to sleep. I now also have to bring my own cat to the vet to check if it also is infected.
Feels bad as fuck, I wanted to help the poor animal and make it happy by treating the wounds and then letting it free or bringing it back to the original owner. Now I am the reason why it is goinbg to die.

I had no idea that cats could get AIDS.

Anyway, don't think about it that way. Think about it as if you were saving a ton of other cats from getting cat AIDS.

I didn't even know cats had an HIV/AIDS equivalent, really interesting.
Not trying to know it better than a trained profesional, but wikipedia says the testing procedure is inconclusive(it tests for antibodies rather than the virus itself) and shouldn't be used as a criterion for euthanasia of stray/adopted cats:
>Cats that have been vaccinated will test positive for the FIV antibody for the rest of their life due to seroconversion, even though they are not infected. Therefore, testing of strays or adopted cats is inconclusive, since it is impossible to know whether or not they have been vaccinated in the past. For these reasons, a positive FIV antibody test by itself should never be used as a criterion for euthanasia.
There's a citation for that paragraph but it's on a paywalled publication.

Today I fell and scratched my right hand. It was one medium size and two small circles of penetrated skin. I realised that I fell after pushing my hand against the rough concrete, so I rolled a bit too late, but early enough to save the rest of my arm, and most importantly the head and knee. I washed it with spring water until the blood stopped flowing, and washed it again with something called Pyrisept (antisepsis). I didn't have any distilled water. I applied liniment/ointment (moisture), then I layered a clean compress (dries), and fastened it with regular bandages (didn't have any skin tape). The pain is just enough to feel a bit good. I can't move the hand much or else the bandages fall off. I need some proper skin tape and distilled water.

I talked to the vet again and the cat had multiple injuries and injections that were severe overall.
The jaw was broken, there's was a large cyst in it's leg so it walked awkwardly, there was a severe throat infection, one of it's balls was swollen so maybe he had cancer in his testicles, the cat AIDS and other small things like parasites.
I asked the vet about the false positive test and she said that that is true and could happen, but not on the AIDS test, that's for a different test regarding Leukemia or something iirc. The cat was also relatively old and like I said very, very, very scared and aggressive when it saw a human.
Usually cats with AIDS get adopted by the local animal-safety-whatever and get into a small group with other invested cats where they hang out, but he was too wild and scared for that sort of thing. You can't leave a stray locked up like that.
The cat is dead now. Here's a (creepy) picture. RIP
