what are some things that really bug you?
things that genuinely piss you off?

I thought it would be nice to have a thread to vent about any little annoyance, no mater how big or small.
Any and all complains about the world around you are welcome here!

I wish the local classical music station would actually play classical music more. Does anyone care about whatever minutia about such-and-such composer or concert or piece they talk about in the spotlight sections? Why do they still need to announce the time when you can get the time practically everywhere else?
>> No. 12298 [Edit]
A lot of the things that used to bother me don't anymore.

I guess when one grows beyond hating people and things then hate seems meaningless.

I don't like to go down to the street, because it really irritates me when people walk, talk to themselves and each other, use their telephone, shout, whistle, throw away trash, search trash cans, tap with their hands and feet, stink, mouthbreathe, cry, laugh, complain, boast, drive their car, smoke, eat, drink, etc. Which is just about everything.

Eating. Such a pain in the ass. Every day. Stomach grumbling. I eat and eat and then eat some more but it's never enough. I look through the fridge but I never find anything I like. It's all such a hassle.

Bug me? Red nail polish, and nail polish colours in general that doesn't even remotely match what the person is wearing.

Things that genuinely piss me off? Anything that comes from the retarded userbases of 4chan and Reddit, and all of 9gag and FunnyJunk. You know, the rage faces shit, "memes" like business cat and hipster dog, recycling shit from years ago that's already old and unfunny, and genuinely thinking that they're the internet, and have made all the content on the internet.
>> No. 12307 [Edit]
this. people who spew the same exact unfunny garbage at each other and everyone else as if it's the funniest thing ever. like the "arrow to the knee" picture was funny when i saw it once. Once. then people said it fucking constantly about everything, youtube comments that mention it get thousands of likes, people get tattoos of it.

People who use a different mug/glass every time they have a drink.

People who think anime is a genre, they watch stuff like dumb shonen shows just because theyre anime.

People who only watch fansubs even when there is a free legal stream.

People who drive cars, eat meat and do whatever else without a thought for the environmental implications. The attitude of "I cant make a difference so why should I bother?".

Most people right now are too busy thinking of how to stay out of poverty to consider getting a hybrid to feel good about the placebo they bought.

And meat? Really? What the fuck is wrong with eating meat? I'm against the fact that a lot of places where they raise cattle for meat have awfully unsanitary conditions, but still.

Sour rice breath. I usually have to put up with it when male international students talk to me.

When people say 'fml'. I don't want to hear you complain about how your life is shit. Go do something about it, passively complaining isn't going to change shit.

Touching greasy/dirty public surfaces like fast food tables, mouses and keyboards, those straps and poles you're meant to hold when on the bus, doorknobs (especially those of toilets).

I hate listening to people speak. Like, whenever I hear someone speak, I think of how to phonetically spell what they are saying, and come up with things like

"Awgh, thaets awfaw, yeu shid gyet thet chikd owt."

I then want to punch these people in the face, and it makes me end up minding my own diction and speaking very carefully and accentuate my syllables, and make sure vowels stay with their selected readings. O seems to become A a lot in the US... Also T and D mix a lot. Really, lazy mouth is a huge issue I notice and it bugs me. So does vocal fry, and for christs sake, 3DPD here actually WANT to sound like C3P0 being drowned in lime jello.

Basically people talking makes me mad.

Also, watching how audiences act on talk shows sometimes makes me think the only things that separate chimpanzees on crack and humans is clothes, and even that wall is being torn down...

Websites like Memegenerator, Know Your Meme, and others that use copyright-free entertainment and profit off of it, and also kill it. I feel ashamed of myself for liking lolcats and reaction images now. It's all the property of fourteen year old kids making family guy references now.

Children who watch (western) cartoons and think they should be overly rambunctious and overanimate their expressions because of it. Once in a restaurant, a kid tried his father's curry, and he ran around the table making loud siren noises with his mouth open, waving his hands, and asking if fire is coming out of his mouth. Haruhidamn, if my kid did that, I'd backhand him and destroy every Disney DVD he ever owned, and block all the cartoon channels on the cable and make him watch Ponyo.

People who are always insincere or speak without reason. It's worse than lying to me.

People accepting the easily preventable. People throwing away perfectly good clothes because going to a goodwill bin is too much effort, even if it's on the way to the dump.

Not being able to do something because I lack motivation, and feel fatigued by just the thought of it, even if I really want to do something, and I end up not doing it.

People not caring about their outward appearances. Like how people wear pajamas in public now. What the fuck is this? Stay home if you're that reluctant to interact with society. I can't wait to see what people wear twenty years from now. Will it be depends and a Bud Light box?

Finding things in Walmart. Go to Walmart and try to find 1: a red bandanna, 2: a box of original Oreos, not double stuf or inside out, and 3: Original Twizzlers. Of note, I found out that the price match guarantee works like this: "Oh, you found an item that is cheaper somewhere else? Well, we're going to strike this item from our inventory and carry either an obscure, useless variant or a competetor's brand of it. We only match prices on items with matching UPCs, anyways!" I hate Walmart and it is the only store I condone, and even encourage, shoplifting from.

Using internet terminology in regular speaking.

I think I may be done.

Pretty sure plenty of weeabos do this as well. Like, gaia kids and that sort of people.
>> No. 12335 [Edit]
They do, but it's a bit different.

People get pissed at the weeaboos (good) but when a kid does the whole Wile E Coyote bit they just laugh and say "cute." Not okay.
>> No. 12337 [Edit]
Store workers saying "Hello!" whenever a customer walks in. Especially when they have one person stationed at the doorway just for that reason. It's so fake it hurts.

Being bugged with "Can I help you, sir?" when I'm just looking around or trying to find something on my own.

Hairy women. More so than other 3DPD women.

The way fat people grunt and groan when going about everyday tasks. It's not that I hate fat people, in fact I quite like the "jolly" look some of the older ones have to them. But this particular thing really pisses me off for some reason.

People who claim to be gay or have some kind of mental condition in an attempt to add something unique to their bland, boring personalities.

Old-fashioned people. Asking a legitimate question about something that makes little sense and being told "that's just the way it's always been, just do it."

People who force their definitions of "doing the right thing," "being a good person" and "becoming a better person" on others, as if they are some unspoken rule that must be followed, rather than individual morals and opinions. Especially when the person fails to realize that they do what they believe to be "the right thing" only for their own satisfaction, acting like they're some kind of Haruhidamn saint.

Modern 4chan culture (and what it has created) in general.

People who start games and never finish them. Not because of lack of fun, but they just sort of drift off onto something else and leave it abandoned forever.

Vegetarians by choice. The ones who preach to everybody else about how great their lifestyle is and how everybody else is a murderous savage.

People who get upset over very small things. I'm not meaning the kinds of things in this thread, but things such as the way you look at somebody, they way you stand, your tone of voice. The way they point these things out to you as if you should constantly be considering whatever they may be thinking about you and how you can tip-toe around them, changing yourself for the sake of every little stranger you come across.

People who only scrape the very surface of a medium of entertainment rather than digging deeper and finding the true gems, enabling them to form a unique and interesting opinion.

The worst, for me, is people/society still being controlled by "human nature." Come on, we're past that. Enough obeying "instincts" and screwing some drunken whore in an attempt to carry on the human race while not even understanding what it is that's driving you to do such a disgusting thing. Enough feeling as if you need to form a group and take safety in numbers, to fit in. I'm sick of people claiming that being "human" is the best way to live. Taking pride in being human, something you put no effort into yourself. I believe the world would be a better place if we all acted a little less human.

This post came out longer than I thought it would.

Drive up windows and food service in general, when they say incorrect variants of "How may I help you?" Most often it's "Can I help you?" No, I just came up to this window to chat. Of course you can, you're qualified and I have no other reason to be in contact with you.

The sound of people chewing.

I absolutely hate it. It's unbearable for me.
>> No. 12341 [Edit]
I'm always thinking of my chewing volume when I'm eating around other people.
Even my breathing volume is a concern for me, since my nose got broken I feel like its pretty loud. I know it sounds dumb but this is a big deal for me when I'm on the train and I have my ipod plugged in.
>> No. 12342 [Edit]
Oh Haruhi, my dad ALWAYS chews with his mouth open and it bugs the shit out of me.
>> No. 12343 [Edit]
This is probably my biggest annoyance. I can't eat downstairs at all because of the sound of eating or other people breathing close to me.

My mum likes to have the TV on, pretty much all the time, with the volume at crazy enough levels that she can't hear anything I say if I come downstairs. Alternatively she'll be blasting music from shitty laptop speakers with it sitting on her lap, completely unaware of the existence of headphones.

Unnecessary noise in general bugs me. She has some of her friends over about once a month and from what I tell they practically shout throughout the evening. People don't seem to appreciate quietness. It's the main reason I like to stay up all night and sleep through the day.
>> No. 12344 [Edit]
I said that to a guy the other day. He called me a crackhead.
You'd be surprised how many people really do just stand around the counter that don't need anything. So it was a valid question. In drivethru I usually say 'What can I get for ya'
you're supposed to greet people no matter what, supposed to help em feel welcome. also it helps to deter thieves. It's like saying, hi, I see you. don't take our crap.

What annoys me is people who care more about animals than humans.

And people who leave their trash on the table as opposed to throwing it away.
Littering in general pisses me off. I've kept trash in my pockets all day just to not litter.

People blaring shitty music in their car. I don't want to hear your music. Turn it the eff down.
People trying to talk to you, while on the cell phone. Cell phone games. I think they're retarded wastes of time.
>> No. 12345 [Edit]
Reminds me, I heard a story on the news yesterday about these parents who didn't take their cancer-ridden 8 year old son to the hospital because they didn't have the money, in their words, but did take the trouble to get their dog un-fleaed (?) at the vet's office. I raged pretty badly at that.

It's not even like they went to the hospital and were turned away, they didn't even try to do anything and just let the kid basically rot to death. But oh Haruhi forbid their precious dog has fleas. Thankfully, they are now in prison.

Cosplaying and conventions.
It makes me very angry to see people dress up as characters they've seen only a few times and declare they're huge fans of wherever the character is from. To top it off, the people who take part in these things are the lowest of the low, doing it for attention or sex at said conventions.

The fighting game community, or any "Hardcore" gaming community for that matter.

I note your word choice and must ask a question:

Do you hate the occupy movement or what it has become? 

I simply hate what it has become. People arguing against the abuse of the capitalism structure and economic inequality (when the words had meaning) have been outnumbered by self-proclaimed communists and anarchists reading anarchists_cookbook.PDF on their MacBook Air and poor kids who majored in philosophy complaining about tuition and not getting a job, again, typing out angry letters and blog posts on their iPhones and MacBook Air. 

There are people with legitimate issues and problems, who cannot afford to be lobbyists so they are not represented in the government, which continues to bail out some of the most privileged banks and corporations in the world, and continues to irresponsibly spend money and pass useless legislation. However, they are also joined by pieces of shit, and the media did not report on Occupy until the pieces of shit arrived, and then intentionally made the entire movement look like the nation's collective bowel movement. And you know it was intentional. Plus, it wasn't that popular on Reddit until about the sixth day if I recall correctly and my sources are trusted. You can tell Reddit was the source of the shits because the terminal decline of Occupy started after it hit big on social media. The same thing basically happened to the Tea Party. OWS's original design was out of necessity in today's world, it just needs to be refurbished and turned into a nameless movement that isn't taken over by fucks and that more people can agree with while not thinking it is a political party or "were making history guise #iminthemovement" crap. 

The economy is shit, and the culture is shit, and if any semblance of stability is to exist past 2020 there needs to be drastic nationwide and global changes within the next four or so years. 

For one thing, tuition and the existing structure of education, the main point I will make to make sure this thread isn't derailed again into political shit.

Since college now is basically a necessity if you don't want a union job in a post-industrial society, you would think tuition would be more affordable. However, because student loans and scholarships are given out on a much more lenient basis, schools take advantage of this and profit. Adjusted for inflation, a Harvard grad in 1960 would have spent as much for his four years at Harvard as a freshman there this year is spending on his first year alone. Yet very little of that money goes to professors, most goes to grandiose gymnasiums and six performance halls and three cafeterias selling unlimited hommus and Tibetan mince yak pudding, most of these things being unneeded and half of them not even being used by students who are there for LECTURES and STUDYING. When was the last time you saw a college student with enough time to take up aikido while studying computer science and getting his general education requirements out of the way?

Colleges are a business you have to buy into, and not get any customer's rights. That's an issue and I hate that. You spend $100,000 (much more or a little less) for a piece of paper saying you know things and spent five times more than you should have spent. 

Also some of that is for living in a cramped box with some kid who won't clean the fucking toilet or bring out the trash, farts a lot, and brings seven girls over at 11:30 PM on the night before exams so he can show them Human Centipede on full blast volume as the girls scream "EEEEEW!" every six minutes. 

Also some is for textbooks with a monopoly on a certain subject so they charge you $700 for one volume. 

Another thing is general education requirements (read: high school 2.0). This exists because America can't be assed to standardise high school curriculums in core subjects on a federal level and make free domain textbooks. Instead, if you don't want to take the same course over again for $20,000 a year, you have to buy into a $150 AP™ course in high school. Either way, someone makes bank for making you learn the same useless shit over again. 

The reason advanced math is taught in high school is so you can build reasoning and logic skills, and if taught properly, you can learn any language, program anything, and basically make a lot of money and solve a lot of problems for a lot of people instead of having to sweat your balls off over a blowtorch until you're laid off or injured. Learning math is not for memorising how to solve a problem, then promptly forgetting about it in six to eight months, like Spanish classes. However, math teachers rarely, if ever, teach math to reinforce critical logic as much as they tell you a prescribed way to get an answer and not tell you WHY each step is taken and what it actually does. If you do use your logic and reasoning to find a more efficient way of reaching the outcome, you are punished with a failing grade instead of rewarded for learning what the class is existing to teach you. This is so bad that many teachers actually think that the curriculum is needed in everyday life. Nobody ever multiplies a matrix in everyday life, for christ's sake. Nobody puts a meal on the table by drawing a parabola. If math only existed to teach you life math skills, where is the tax form chapter? Where is the checkbook balancing chapter? Where is the "Your wages will be sapped out by taxes, so your net pay can be significantly less than what you are being told you are being paid" chapter? None of this is preparing kids for the world!

High school is basically a useless time where you are "prepared" for college with lies and overstatements and given infinite opportunities to fuck up the rest of your life by stepping off the path once. No life knowledge or skills are given to you during high school, and many, many people are conditioned to hate learning, and remain ignorant because of it, and hate recreational learning as a result. Commas aren't taught correctly in school, it was something I had to learn on my own accord, in ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. Because so many hate recreational learning, you will notice pretty much a vast majority of people do not use commas, or don't use them within the rules of any prescribed grammar codes. The same can be said about knowledge of the world. Most people don't know anything about countries but what they see in a Michael Bay film. 

The only thing high school does is be a time placeholder that puts people in danger of being demoralised, unmotivated, and even killed, by their own hands or by the hands of someone who sees the futility of the existing system and in a deranged, hateful, thoughtless rampage, kills his fellow victims. 

TL;DR: Capitalism and education should be separate as hell and the moon, schools should exist to educate, not make cafeterias with Mongolian Hipster Wheat Dip in biodegradable packaging, the reason tuition is so high is because of ravenous supercapitalist sharks taking bites off of the lenient loan-giving and scholarships, general education is a crock of shit because high schools won't (or can't) do their jobs, math is taught for all the wrong reasons, and the government could solve all of this if it just standardised education and made high schools into places for education, not for putting yourself in daily danger of bomb threats and being shot by some kid whose dad abused him and blamed video games for his violent outbursts, and all this institution does now is prevent people from fighting their own ignorance by destroying our inherent urge to educate ourselves. 

Maybe this could go in Tohno U (/mt/) but it has a better place in this thread.

I think the guys who wrote KS thought a bit like that as well. It's more indoctrination than learning.
The pro's for private higher education is a lack of that, in opposition to whatever government agenda may be in place. However, it's easy to see where this would just be the same but in favor of whatever corporation backs that institution of learning.
My experience with teachers has been nothing more than glorified daycare. Even at the university level, it's been short lectures where I hardly learn 10% of what is needed, and the rest in self study or in laboratory work. Maybe that's just because I'm at the undergraduate level though.

Tuition may be very high, but it is affordable if you qualify for scholarships. This I see as a sort of filter for those who would not make it anyways. The problem here is as you said, this is taken advantage of again for profit. Something I have also seen is that general education does not grade you on how well you learn, but how well you follow directions. So the guy pushing out a 3.5GPA with worksheets and standardized tests will fail at higher levels, but the one with latent talent that was hammered down can't advance with a 2.3 or so.

As for general life skills, what helped me deal with household finances and other life skills like buying a vehicle, was my family. Western culture doesn't have a family model anymore as I see it, and with no support it is no surprise all these kids fail.

It'll be interesting to see how the future will come about when no one is investing in human capital through education and everything is milked for short term profits to fit a bare capitalist model.

I guess I also agree with you there on hating a crumbling system as well.
At least we have the internet free for a while longer. If it does get on lockdown, we can always go through a "quality control" phase and those that can will regress back to HAM geeks with packet radio and such.

Hope this wasn't a bother.

You reminded me of another thing that really pisses me off. Here in New Zealand, we have this terrible testing/marking system in high school. It's called "NCEA."

The gist of it is there are four grades, Not Achieved, Achieved, Achieved with Merit, and Achieved with Excellence. You receive individual marks for each question on the paper, which are then counted and averaged out to see what you get for the whole thing. 90% of the time this "averaging" causes a drop in grade. For example, one paper I've done: even if you get Merit or Excellence for all other questions, if an earlier question was marked achieved or not achieved, you get that mark instead. For the entire paper. It's ridiculously easy to achieve, but often ridiculously difficult to achieve with merit or excellence. What qualifies you for each grade IS written on the papers of the examiners, but they often manage to just twist it or misinterpret it, giving you the result they believe you deserve, because they're overworked and likely understaffed.

Basically, New Zealand realized that their education system was insufficient, that few were actually passing anything. So, did they improve their teaching or disciplinary systems? Haha, no way, that'd require money, time or effort! So instead, they "average" out the system like so. Now, sure, we have plenty of idiots passing. But they do the same garbage they would've done if they'd gotten no education whatsoever. A lot of intelligent people are screwed over because of this bullshit system knocking them down grades, simply because they don't understand what the requirements for passing with excellence or merit are. We're not told that before we enter, we're told what's required to pass, and that's it. That's all they want from us.

Funny thing is, we stole this system from Scotland. Then THEY dropped it, but we're still using it.

One more year. One more year till I'm in University and, at the very least, away from this garbage system.

I think I agree with that. College is just a fantastic way to produce entitled little shits who think they know everything, and for the most part on their parents' bill (though there are definitely exceptions to that, especially students coming from poor and/or military backgrounds.) College itself isn't a bad thing. It can be extremely useful to the resourceful, clever student who knows exactly how to play the system and make key contacts. But those sorts of people are in the minority, and for all the rest, primary and secondary education doesn't do a fucking thing to prepare them for that reality.

So it's hard to blame the students themselves. The ones at bad schools are generally there because of their low economic status, and the ones at "good" schools often get told that they're all special snowflakes etc., so that once they go off to college they think they already own the whole world. The lies we're told in our youth to make us feel better only hurt us, and it's the adults who are to blame for it. It's also one of the many reasons the US is going to be in the shitter (even more I mean) in the next 5-10-20 years unless something really incredibly dramatic happens.

We shouldn't be too quick to generalize about the Occupy people, though. Yeah, some of them are definitely dipshits, but many more probably have done their best and are understandably upset that they haven't gotten what they feel would be a fair break. Occupy needs to find a focus outside of the vague "fuck capitalism" thing they've been on for the last few months. If they actually want to get somewhere, they need to focus on electoral reform. As long as the Republicans and Democrats hold a monopoly on power, they'll never have to be held accountable for their actions. Just look at the coming presidential election: the choice will be between Barack Obama and someone either the same (if it's Romney) or worse (if it's Gingrich or Santorum.) He can pretty much get away with anything he wants and his base will still support him. It is a load of shit.

This whole conversation should really be on /mt/, I guess.

Haruhi damn it, 4chan posters are incredibly annoying. Not only do they think their ``jokes'' and style of posting to be the standard on every textboard/imageboard, they then act in an even more obnoxious manner whenever somebody points it out to them. And I'm not just talking about your typical ``/b/-tard'', I'm talking about every single board on 4chan, that place is infected. Just look at the textboards, they used to be a decent place to post on but look at them now.

That place posters just can't adapt, they want to shove their ``memes'' and ``clever'' jokes in every place they go to and when told to stop they resort to insults, ``U MAD'' and even spamming. In other words, they annoy me, not because they exist, but because they can't keep to themselves.

It is what it has become, and you realise, unfourchanitely, the website is nothing but fourteen year olds and misguided neckbeards now, with the occasional person who puts up with shit because they don't know there are better places to go.

They do have some 1 in 5,000,000 good insight posts. Someone sent me this screen shot. But this kind of good insight can be found on a lot of much better sites, like, say, this one here.
>> No. 12412 [Edit]
I could tolerate them if they just kept to themselves, but no, they must take that attitude wherever they go and insult the posters of other communities.
>> No. 12414 [Edit]
The thing that bugs me the most has to be when they get mad about Reddit and emoticons. Meanwhile, they're using MSPaint (and regular) reaction images, greentext stories and other meme garbage.

Oh, but it was FUNNY when THEY did it. Pieces of shit. I only recently discovered Tohno-chan after it was mentioned on /jp/ at some point.

>with the occasional person who puts up with shit because they don't know there are better places to go.

I could never find anywhere better, before the above happened. What sites are you talking about? I'm curious.
>> No. 12415 [Edit]
I think he's talking about this site. I also found Tohno-chan through /jp/, maybe one/one and a half years ago. It really is a haven. Slow sometimes, but that suits me a lot better now than seeing the same fucking threads over and over again every day.
>> No. 12422 [Edit]
You can adapt. Begin browsing quality boards like tc and bunbunmaru. Use the catalog to quickly scan threads and find ones you find interesting: http://catalog.nee v/a/

Also recognise that while poor quality posts has increased, so has the number of posts created with the implicit intention of creating quality. Quality posts on that site used to come about naturally and spontaneously, but nowadays there are more people who deliberately try to write and share good things.
>> No. 12423 [Edit]
Go ahead and pretend your "secret" clubs aren't mainly populated by people with a history on 4chan. Often even active posters.

Your definitions of quality are arbitrary, your claims of superiority aren't fully justified, and when you write your emotional posts on how 4chan is shit (Which it is) and how X is so much better, you sound like a child subconsciously justifying your choice of console because you can't have all of them.

Keep in mind I left like many others, but the people who can't let go and accept what happened annoy me more than the 4chan people of today.

what difference does it make if people have a history there?
people can grow up and move on you know.
just becuase you used to shit yourself and cry about it as a baby, doesn't mean you do it anymore right?
I'd think it rather petty to make fun of someone for the childish things they used to do and forever hold it over them long after they've stopped, especially when they're trying to better themselves.
I can't speak for everyone, but many here have grown tired of 4chan and moved past it.
I myself haven't frequented the site in years.

people who still go to 4chan on the other hand and still complain about it, yeah... they're something else alright.
>> No. 12428 [Edit]
The point isn't that people who use/used 4chan are somehow inferior. That's stupid, and I don't really care, I lost interest in the site some years back and I gradually stopped going, nothing more, nothing less. Holding grudges only gives you a temper and makes you stressed and go bald.

The point was that some people hold on to the delusion that they've somehow escaped the 4chan users they so vehemently despise by coming to smaller sites, take your pick which one.

"Oh, 4-ch has wonderful boards", "/bun/ has some great serious discussion", "Krautchan /int/ is full of personalities!", "Boy, these #X-LANGUANGE-ONLY boards are great because it gives a more close-knit community!"

No, it's all the same shit by the same people. And that's fine, just realize that no board is an island, no matter how much you like to pretend this is the case.

When I complain about typical 4chan users I'm talking about the 16 year old kids that go about parroting memes left and right wherever they go. Like you said, and like I said in my original post, I have no interest in what happens on 4chan, but it's when they go to different places (despite what you say 4-ch and the like are NOT like 4chan in the least bit)and don't respect the rules that I get angry, there needs to be an adaptation period whenever you go to a different board or website.
You can't expect to go to the SAoVQ with a /b/ like mentality and expect acceptance, you'll be banned on the spot. Hell, you don't need to go that far, a user on world2ch made a post on the SAoVQ; now, those are two pretty similar textboards but the community is so different that the thread on the SAoVQ was just left to die after having been classified as un-VIP, I myself politely said to stop bumping the thread.

Now yes, you are right, all of us were once 4channers, most of us anyway. But we know how to switch mentalities for whatever board we are posting on, at least I do. e.g; I don't post on tohno-chan in the same way I post on SAoVQ, they're different places no matter what you think. Is there an overlap in the userbase, yes; do they behave the same way, no. If you think there isn't a difference then obviously you're not paying enough attention. Here's another example; there are people on /bun/ that browse and post on /v/, yes you read right, /v/. And do you see him posting ``>spaghetti falling from pockets'' and ``FUCKING GAMESTOP'' everywhere? NO! Because he is in a different place. And that is the problem I have with most 4chan poster, the 16 year old obnoxious idiots that don't respect the communities of the places they go to.

Another example; a long time ago I was posting on /lounge/, now, that's hardly an example of a quality place to browse, mostly because it's a part of 4chan, when it was on w4ch it was much better but that's another story, but anyway this ``kid'' comes up and starts posting about a particular board so I kindly tell him: nobody cares. Simple as that, no one on the textboards cares about the imageboards, but he was offended see, he wanted us to care, so he continued to bump his shit thread, thus pushing the other ``good'' threads back, it didn't stop us from having conversations but it was mighty annoying having to see that silly little thread, and you can forget about reporting because MrVacBob-sama doesn't care in the least bit. That's why /prog/ is the way it is today, idiots from /g/ ruined it.

But anyway, I don't get that angry, like you said they're there and we are here. As long as they stay there, fine by me.
>> No. 12443 [Edit]
I hate how elementary school teachers have destroyed the meaning of the word "inappropriate", especially for my generation. 

Inappropriate means not apropos, not relevant, and not suited for discussion in a certain environment or topic of conversation. For instance, when two people are talking about their research in pine tree growth in warmer climate, and another person bumps in to the conversation to talk about his favourite tuna, that is inappropriate. 

However, teachers selectively use, and abuse, the word and incorrectly teach children through contextual learning that inappropriate means lewd, obscene, sexual in nature. Yes, that nature of conversation is ill suited for discussion in a classroom, but they never say "that's inappropriate" when a child interrupts long division to ask where the native Americans were relocated when Andrew Jackson was president, or if two kids get into a fight during geography, when both are highly irrelevant to the activity the schedule has set aside for them. 

So basically, we have an entire set of generations saying things like "that's inappropriate" on phone sex hotlines. What, did the landwhale with the deep voice on the other end start talking about the role of Prussia as a state in the Weimar Republic or the nature of architecture in ancient China and whether it was early evidence that humans could make structures that were earthquake resistant? 
Or using the line in the bedroom (I know this from middle school, and sleeping over my friends house as his promiscuous mother brought home another man half her age). Well, did he ask her what she thought of the monthlong Ezo Republic and what kind of implications it had on the thoughts of citizens in the early Meiji era?

I have had bad experiences using the word in conversation, like 
>"I saved up thirty dollars in a pickle jar, and I also put a 5000 won banknote and a stick of bubblegum in it. "
"Gum and foreign currency in your savings jar? Isn't that inappropriate?"
>"Jesus, what's so sexual about that, you prude?!"
Which then escalates to me trying to tell the person the real meaning of the word, and them telling me I am stupid and "teacher said x so she must be right," and them still not believing me even after I show them the definition in both the Webster's and Oxford dictionary of the English language, as they prefer the dictionary of Mrs. Backwater-teacher-who-always-wore-custom-made-dresses-sewn-together-from-1960's-sofa-upholstry-and-punished-kids-for-using-"they"-as-a-gender-neutral-pronoun. 

To avoid getting into arguments with people who refuse to accept citation, facts and evidence because "they feel like it isn't correct", I replace it with "not apropos." This makes sure the smart people know what I am saying and the dumb ones just smile and nod, instead of showing off their (dead wrong) repertoire of knowledge.

>> No. 12460 [Edit]
No, guys like you prevent me from being really bad, like hating Koreans for being Korean (genetic). I cannot find anything that would warrant that kind of feeling, and I won't try to look for anything. 

In fact, the least biased (pro or con) views of Korea seem to come from the people who have Korean blood but were born and raised outside Korea. They see the world perspective and when either looking at Koreans or visiting relatives in Korea, they see how childish and skewed they can be, and recognise that. 

My one friend in college, Lux, has a room mate who is half-Korean. I call him Wileom. I make jokes to him like buying him kimchi noodle bowls from WalMart and calling him a race traitor for going to ramen restaurants and liking anime and Perfume. That's beside the point though. 

He absolutely hates being Korean not because of the genetic or cultural parts, but from learning firsthand the mentality of born and raised Koreans. He absolutely could not stand his relatives when he visited Korea, and their extreme ass-headedness towards anything non-Korean, like the Miguk and jjokbari. 

I mean, for christ's sake, they have an Internet campaign to spell Korea with a "C" in the English language so they can come before Japan in alphabetical order. The last time I saw that mentality in a person, he was making a glitter pen card for mothers' day and had to go to the nurse's office because he was wiggling his tooth and it fell out, because he wanted money to buy a yoyo from the school store the next day. 

They go all over the Internet trying to make English-language websites look like so many people like K-pop, altering polls (in a similar fashion to /b/), 

There are so many Korean-descended people who knew nothing about the kinds of things that these people do and think. I remember reading several blogs about "Korean American Life" written by halfers and Korean-descended teens and young people, saying "holy shit, the things my mother said about Japanese people after the disaster in March... I never knew she could be this awful! Are there that many Koreans who think this?

I don't hate Koreans. I just hate the "What Japan did to us seventy years ago is terrible! Even though the Russians, Chinese and Mongols did worse. Since Japan is so terrible you should drop Anime and read Manhwa and listen to SNDK nida!" Koreans. And you know who is to blame the most? The government. Latent anti-Japanese sentiment is actually not a part of Korean culture. 

The government in South Korea is so restrictive and ignorant, the only difference I see with North and South Korea is that South Korea has more lights and food. Children are taught from a young age to hate their neighbours, especially Japan. For instance, "Dokdo artwork" crayon drawings from children were hanged in a train station, and the shit they drew... It's as bad as the Dear Leader hailing to the north. This sentiment is actually relatively recent in Korea, and even during the annexation period, aside from some fringe groups, the view of most Koreans of Japan was more like the views of Hawaiians to the US, until around 1940. "Yeah, it sucks that we we were colonised, and we want to be free, but let's face the facts. We were a shitty backwater the past 300 years, and it would be worse if Russia annexed us."

Also. The government has little pride in Korea's merits and more pride in how to make Korea look cool abroad. They claim other cultures' practices were Korean made (samurai, tea ceremonies, katanas, most asian martial arts, fireworks, Chinese hanzi, manga, even airplanes and pizza, Phonetians and the Aztecs) and important Asian people are of Korean decent. They are called "uriginals" (uri [our] originals) And it works for a few people, even abroad. 

For instance. A comic artist from Denmark that makes a web comic about anthro countries made her Japan a nerdy stereotypical Asian with squinty eyes and a bowl cut while South Korea is some sort of cool dude manga character with European-esque eyes. 

Koreaboos are just trying to distance themselves from annoying cosplayers who don't bathe, when they could just ignore them and like what they fucking want to like. 

I find it hilarious how some people discover "hey, when I was a narutard I really was retarded! So to distance myself from that awful time in my life I will be a K-pop hipster and talk about how bad Japan is! I totally am not a Weeaboo now guise!" not knowing it is the same shit, different fandom, being a Koreaboo. 

It's especially funny when Koreaboos talk about racism. 
"When I was in Tokyo, all of them were such racists, some stared at me! When I asked a guy for directions in English he ignored me! One kid asked if I was from Africa or America! Another held up a pen to me and told me "this is pen!" Do these kids think black people are all stupid! I'm really light for a black man! Then some cop came and told me to stop smoking in the street. Another yelled at me for talking on the phone on the subway, and all the other Japs were recording me with their cell phones! Japs are racist whale munchers!"
Versus, same people,
"I went to a shopping centre in Seoul today, listening to some SNDK(smokin hot Korean babes) on my Samsung Galaxy on the train. Koreans stare at people a lot, but that's the culture! Anyways, walking past the little kids playground in the middle of the place the mothers panicked and were all hiding their children and saying things like "dearde maenkee gyeo heom!" under their breath. Korean moms are so protective! When I bought a jar of kimchi at one of the stores, the man sent a new hire to follow me around, saying "NO DACH IF NOT BAE!" They must be really helpful here! I was frisked afterwards, in traditional Korean custom. Then I went out to a restaurant that was selling dog meat. It's just the culture, don't be so ignorant! I heard that another mall went into a full panic and lockdown because a Nigerian woman tried to buy some fabric. They just don't see many black people in Korea, it can't be helped!"

This is exactly the same as the Weeaboos who go to Japan and get lambasted for saying they are Otaku to normals, and in some masochistic flurry they talk about how nice the Japanese are to them, but when they are mean, "it's just the culture!"

Things that annoy me, then:
Korean protesters
Both Korean governments
People who think in liking something, you automatically are part of the annoying fanbase and are just like them.

Koreans puzzle me.
They really do seem keep to themselves and have no interest at all in outsiders. I live in the South, home of the redneck yet there is a very large Korean population here now. Why? I have no idea.

They build little strip malls, and buy up closed businesses, and cater only to other Koreans. What they sell in these shops is beyond me as I can't read Korean. That doesn't seem like the best business model, as it highly restricts their clientele to just those that have not been fully assimilated.

Back on topic about things that annoy me.
How people dress themselves. I could go on and on, but here are a couple of examples.

People that wear flip-flops and sandals outside of the beach or the pool. Put some fucking shoes on. I see this year round. Even winter time there will be those in shorts and flip-flops. It doesn't snow much here, but it does get cold.

Women dressing like men annoys me too. I mean wearing boot-cut jeans, boots, and a flannel shirt. That is fine attire for hopping in a Subaru and driving to the nearest gay bar. Are men going to have to wear frilly dresses to be masculine soon? I bet some here hope so
>> No. 12472 [Edit]
yeah it bugs the hell out of me too.
I've also seen people wearing those things in winter while it's pouring rain out.
I wish they'd get frost bite or something, they deserve it.

My neighbors are rattling my windows with car stereos as I type. My mother says we can't call in on them unless it's past 11 at night (then it is disturbing the peace). I'm really surprised since two of them got arrested last month for burglary and driving a car into a house (being chased by cops), so you'd think the remaining ones would try to keep a low profile.

My country is filled with people with no respect for property. 

The reason there is little public transportation and tax-funded public infrastructure is because there are a lot of people who can't be trusted to, quite literally, not shit on everything. 

Boston has a group called the Mass Bay Transportation Authority, colloquially called "The T". This is because all the Commuter Rail (Passenger diesel trains), bus stops, and subway are marked with a big sign with a T in a circle (Ⓣ) for Train or Transport. The MBTA is in charge of all public transport and even offers taxis. 

Anyways, because the MBTA is funded by taxes, they can allow for "lower" fares on train tickets, a third of the price of Amtrak. From the nearest station to me, a trip to Boston costs $7.25 and takes 1 hour or so. This is a hell of a lot safer, more efficient, and actually cheaper and less time consuming for one person to go into the city. 

However, people have no respect for the train. They leave trash everywhere. Even the workers throw tickets onto the floor when they are done clipping them. Normal people throw their gum on the floor. Sunflower seed shells are spat on the ground. And yes... People do occasionally have bowel movements. They sometimes forget to do it on the walls of a public bathroom, in a trash can, in a newspaper vending box, or Haruhi knows where else they spread their shit.  Jesus. 

Because they have to scrape shit and gum and graffiti off of every surface they own, the MBTA is now jacking up fares and cutting off some key services that people rely on starting next year (or within the next few months). This is going to kill the infrastructure and will be detrimental to the city's revenue and to the surrounding towns. If people actually respected public property this wouldn't be an issue. 

I especially love it when people talk about how "disgusting" it is that public urination is more common in Japan than in the US (to which a lot of people (Japanese or otherwise) say the Zainichi do it, and it's more common in urban China and Korea than Japan, etc). For christ's sake, have those people ever encountered a fucking fresh log sitting on a park bench, or shit spread (with handprints) all over the walls of a public bathroom in the guhd ol' Yew Eyss ah Ay? Because I see it so much... Fucking hell.

For those of you outside the US, is shit on everything common at all? I don't want to be making inferences I cannot confirm. Here, if you walk into a stall at McDonalds or any school or hospital or restaurant there is a 1:5 chance that the bathroom floor and wall is coated with someone's shit, or the toilet is clogged with a fucking ream of toilet paper mixed with shit and piss. Even sometimes, just piss is left in the bowl because some asshole couldn't be bothered to flush his piss, like most three year olds know how to do. If you do visit the US, always use public bathrooms between the hours of 5-9 AM, because this is usually before all the teenagers and frat boys can coat the walls in the only things they know how to create. This is the best advice I can give, and I guarantee no tourist book will tell you that. 

It seems like as soon as you call something "public", especially in urban areas, it automatically is disrespected by everyone. I hate it and think no wonder socialism is a bad word in the US. Who wants to work so their income is taxed to scrape gum and shit off of a train station platform?

I think sometimes that I should exact revenge on the public by leaving the bloody water sitting in a toilet bowl with a note saying "I never flushed in public bathrooms. Now this happens to me. This is what Haruhi did to me. Please always remember to flush or you too will be hit by Haruhi's holy wrath of bloody poop." so someone can have nightmares and remember to flush always. 

I. hate. shit.

That's disgusting. I rarely if ever leave the house, but I don't remember ever seeing shit spread on the walls of public bathrooms, or any place for that matter, at least not on the places I go to. I've seen piss, obviously, on the floor next to the urinals but that is, I assume, common. I don't know how it is in the rest of Europe, but people are somewhat hygienic where I live.

I really hate that too.
people, especial teens, love to deface public property for fun.

when I went to mexico for some dental work, I used a pay toilet, and it was disgusting, the floor was completely covered in soggy cardboard.
It would really be nice if people didn't feel compelled to brake, carve their name into, deface, or steal anything left out for public use.

My mother has a habit of leaving trash in parking lots when questioned about why she does it, she said that it was part of what we pay for at whatever business we just came from, that they have people payed to clean that stuff up, and generally believes it to be someone else's problem.
This is the problem I think, when citys get so big, no one knows each other, it all becomes 'someone else's problem'
you wouldn't trash your own home or that of a friend right?
I doubt these people would destroy or deface the property of a shop, if they personally knew the owner of the business.
but when that owner is a stranger you'll probably never meet, it makes people not care.
becuase people only care about what will eventually come back to them and affect them, and I don't mean shop keepers yelling at them or violating laws, I mean destroying things use regularly or that belong to people they care about.
I dunno, but maybe if there was no one around to clean their shit up for them, maybe people would stop doing it as much.
make them use the things they damaged and covered in shit, and teach them that it does in fact affect them to, because they certainly don't care if it affects anyone else.
>> No. 12706 [Edit]
less populated, more rural area are less likely to have these problems.
>> No. 12720 [Edit]
I believe this is just a symptom of 'freedom' being taken to ridiculous levels. True freedom is not only the freedom to thrive, but also the freedom to fuck up. There is a laissez faire attitude in America and to a (probably) lesser extent other Western nations towards people doing shitty things. Adults leave trash on the ground, mismanage their children, cheat on their taxes etc as if they were still children and expect everyone else to clean up after them because nobody is allowed to call them out. The law of the country and even the culture of the country lets people do these things and get off scot-free.

Other countries with stricter policies don't have these kinds of problems. In Japan, if you do something wrong, you get named, shamed and told to resign from your job. Chewing gum is banned in Singapore and you can get a $500 fine for spitting. You can prevent certain people from ruining it for everyone else, but the tradeoff is you have to restrict their freedom. Despotic regimes with draconian laws and punishments which are run for the purpose of improving life for the whole nation is this concept taken to its extreme. The health of the organism usually means the suffering of the cell.
>> No. 12739 [Edit]
I think anonymity plays a large roll in it to.
people are more likely to do something bad, if they think they can get away with it.
in large cities, it's easy to blend into a crowd and disappear in the sea of people.
where as, I doubt most people would shit on their neighbor's lawn and graffiti tag the person's house, if that neighbor was the only other person around for a 100 miles.

and yeah, I've always hated people that are always spiting everywhere.
I don't get why they can't hold it in, and dispose of their fluids in restrooms if need be, it's gross.

I took my laptop in to the apple store for some minor repairs on thursday

The "geniuses" have somehow completely destroyed it

They broke my harddrive, replaced it, and somehow have managed to completely botch the replacement

It was supposed to be a quick, very minor fucking repair and now my laptop hasn't worked for almost a fucking week. I have to take it in for MORE repairs tomorrow for the fourth fucking time.

Fucking Apple. Fucking macs. I wish I had a normal laptop.

So infuriating.
>> No. 12741 [Edit]
I don't use macs, but I understood Apple had some sort of total hardaware waranty, so if they can't repair your machine they replace it with another, at no charge... was I wrong?

However: I don't think any major company official repairing center guarantees software recovery; so even if they fix your machine, they might very well wipe out your entire power level in the process without even consulting you (since it's not their responsability).

Well let's see.
There's world2ch, like >>12839 mentioned, but that place suffers from the same problem that plagues 4-ch: Tokiko/Archduke. It's run by 0037 however and he's a cool guy. Used to be a poster on the original alongside with Shii/Menchi.

There's the SAoVQ, of course, but unfortunately it seems that it too is being overrun with normals. Don't ask me how they found that place, 'cause I have no idea.

None of the other textboards currently alive have anywhere near the traffic that these two and 4-ch have, which is a shame really. The 4chan textboards are only good for ``inane trolling garbage'', 6ch is slow and shitty (though it hosts AAchan), vip-quality is run by the same poster I mentioned in the spoiler, the Tablecat's Lounge gets like one post per week, 10ch is also slow, and the English language board on 2ch requires you to speak Japanese if you want to have a proper conversation with the natives.

If only we lived in Japan we could all call news4vip home.

I hate being poor. I hate this community, the state the whole country. I don't have a single dollar, my breakfast is a single off brand waffle since I can't waste them and eat two at a time. I can't afford to purchase anything for lunch and my dinner is whatever my mom can scratch together. I got to a shitty school and can hardly even afford that. The textbooks cost too much and I need to write down whatever notes I pick up in lectures and expand on that online, and Haruhi fucking help me if the assignments are straight from the book. I can't get a part time job since you need a car to go anywhere in this "city", and my I can feel the hard stares my parents give me when they have to give me a cent to pay for my school or whatever little thing I might need for classes. My mom only cares about her religion and despises me for not socializing the few times I go to church with her, my dad is on his third wife and doesn't give a damn about any of his kids.
Everyone I've come across is the worst kind of person. I'm hardly ever noticed when I do my work in a near empty labroom and hear the rest of them talk behind each others back, ridiculing the professors and their so called friends. I wonder if they talk about me like that too when I'm out of earshot. I always thought that it was a petty thing only women did, but it looks like men do it too. At least I have the benefit of hardly being noticeable or displaying any trait that they could criticize me on.
My own mom makes fun of me for not having friends of a 3DPD, and even wonders why I turned out this way too. Well when you lock someone indoors during non school hours don't expect them to magically be a functional member of society when they reach "adult age".

I've never come across a single person offline that had any redeemable qualities. If they along with their entire bloodline were shit off the Earth I can say it would be a much better place. Even online that list is very very slim.

I hate how sexist popular media is towards men.

I just saw the film Frozen today.
Two guys and a girl get placed in a very possible deadly situation.
and from just that, I bet you can guess how it ends.
one guy jumps from a height that brakes his legs on the ground, (nasty stuff) wolfs come and eat him alive.
about an hour latter into the movie, second guy makes his way across the wires down to the ground and fights off the wolfs then gos for help, but latter on they show that he didn't make it and was also eaten alive by wolfs.
stupid shit like that belongs in horror movies, not dramas.
as for the girl? the chair conveniently falls halfway down snagging on some previously unseen wire, allowing her to fall a safe distance and crawl her way to a road where someone helps her out.
along her way, she comes across the mutilated body of the second guy, and a wolf fucking Staring her down for a minute before going back to eat what's left of the second guy.

I'm tired of movies and tv shows treating men as being expendable, good for nothing but protecting women with their worthless lives, and feeding the dogs with their remains.

Prices for replacement parts, and repairs made by Dell.

It would cost me well over $800 to replace each part of my laptop (build it from scratch. Hard drive, power source, screen, keyboard, motherboard etc), excluding shipping.

I'm not into gore myself either, but stuff like this is why equal rights will never exist.
Not just because of crazy feminist bitches who have no idea what they're talking about, but white nights as well, guys putting down their own fellow man as they knowingly defend sexist double standards.

anime isn't filled with stupid dick envying cunts bitching about their rights.
3D is though, and if they want to be men so badly and get the same treatment as men, that should be in all areas, not just the ones they want.

You think real wolfs give a shit what kind of genitals a human has?
nature doesn't care.
Bitch in that movie used as an example didn't even offer to try and help once in the whole movie, just sat there and waiting until the guys died and left on her own.
I'm not saying she should have died also, what pisses me off is the portrayal of how worthless and disposable men are.
the second guy to get brutally killed actually said at one point 'you're thinking it should have been me that died down there? no I get it, no one gives a shit about me right?'
the guy was actually a well developed character with a back story but died an idiotic death ten minutes from the end of the movie for no good reason.
all the audience knows about the women, is that she's just one of the guy's 3DPD for a year.

It's not that women need to die in media more often, it's that men should not be killed all the time just for the heck of it, for fun even.
many movies will show men dieing by the dozens, which sends a clear message that men are born expendable.

I see the female sex as inferior, so equal rights seem pretty silly. Being treated just slightly better than domesticated animals for thousands of years and all. "Equal rights" wont work unless females are given a massive advantage to compensate for not being male, which would not make it equal at all.

It's my belief so I don't care if any of you think I'm wrong.

Women do have equal rights, in law. This is all they need.

If they don't make as much as men it's their problem for settling for lower paying jobs.

I can kind of understand why Japanese sites would want to keep out western users, since they tend to act like retards and shit places up.
Although not all western users are bad, it only takes a few idiots to fill an otherwise peaceful site into a den of cp/furry/penis spam.

English sites do it just to keep out bots(why?) and possibly increase traffic, with the idea that forcing people to make accounts might make them want to stick around, yet such practices seem more like deterrents to me.

But yes, excessiveness such as that in account application is also frustrating.

Why would you want to be a woman? It's estrogen itself that makes you beyond shit and an awful person, which you need to be flooded with to transform quickly enough. Thankfully elected leaders have an age requirement that is right at about when women should go through menopause.
A full transformation would be available long after I have died, so I'd rather opt to be 2D instead, since both options are just as farfetched in my lifetime anyways. I'd still be male though, with hopefully a bunch of 2D loli's swooning over me.

Even my car, besides getting dings and scratches and tons of miles put on it, uses the backseat of for dropping off garbage.
Almost all my old toys fell victim to my mom's friends kids when she's invite them over, and they'd destroy anything they get their hands on.
Shit, used to be before I sarted using locks on my doors, my mom would regularly go into my room and trash the place and leave it as if a burglar broke in and was looking for something valuable.
She'd say she was cleaning my room when asked about it, cleaning my room my ass, since when does cleaning some one's room involve sweeping everything off the shelves and pulling everything out of the draws and tossing it all into a pile in the middle of the room?

I see it, but as a commercial.
The old man finishes and smiles at his creation, a thunder breaks in, he glances at the cloudy sky, carefully hides his masterpiece under his garments and runs to his log cabin. There he puts it in a shelf and sits by the fire, admiring his creations, ranging from an almost amorphous mass of coarse wood to his recently crafted smooth piece of tight immaculate wooden vagina. He smiles yet another time and then we are greeted by the old familiar "Keep Walking, Johnnie Walker".

You know, those type of people who act like they know everything. It happens to all of us, especially when it comes to things you have alot of expertise in-- you naturally feel like you know most of the subject. Those are not the type of people I'm talking about though, this person is the kind of person who doesn't know much about what they're talking about, but still act like they do. This person talks vaguely about subjects and agrees with anyone reputable, and leaves slivers of freedom so, when proven wrong, this person can refute by saying "of course there are arguments towards what I just said", or something very similar. Now, that's not even the icing on the cake. In my experience, crowds and the general audience react very strangely to this happening.

Let's say I know for sure this person is bullshitting me and knows nothing about the subject. I call this person out and prove that this person has no idea. Instead of the audience agreeing with me and shunning the person for getting themselves in a conversation they have little to no experience in, they actually shun me instead for calling the person out, saying I'm a "know it all".

That's not even all. Let's say I didn't call this person out. This person would then be at the top of the conversation and everyone would praise this person, just for pretending like they know what they're talking about. Days upon days, this person would probably just do little to no research (depending on the topic), and speaks really vaguely-- and people suck it up like they're in an actual conversation.

I understand that I may have been smug when it comes to calling people out, mainly because I hate when people do such a thing, but whose at fault here? Is it the person themselves for playing with people's minds in order to gain a false sense of achievement? Is it the audience who don't care who they're talking to, so long as they have someone to talk to about the topic they like? Is it me for caring too much about this kind of stuff?

I don't even know anymore.

I find it annoying when people argue a point not for the sake of development of a discussion in the proper direction, but for an ego boost. I argue a point because I know it is true, while a lot of people argue a point because they want to look right, and look good doing it.

Some of the criticism is ridiculous, yes, but many of the politicians themselves aren't much better (in my country anyway). They know very little about the things they are making laws about. Even some of the ministers have little knowledge about their field (the minister of science is an ex-nurse, the minister of public health is a political scientist and two economic positions are filled by a historian and ex-detective). They are supposed to do (or make research institutions) do research about the right course of action, but they more or less ask those institutions for ways to justify their beliefs, ignoring the other side of the story.

I suppose that annoys me.

some anime adaptations exasperate that.

In the VN the main character only goes with one girl per play through. But the anime version tries to tie together all possible outcomes, making the MC look like some sort of Casanova.

>>This sentiment is actually relatively recent in Korea, and even during the annexation period, aside from some fringe groups, the view of most Koreans of Japan was more like the views of Hawaiians to the US, until around 1940. "Yeah, it sucks that we we were colonised, and we want to be free, but let's face the facts. We were a shitty backwater the past 300 years, and it would be worse if Russia annexed us."

There were a shitload of resistance groups in Korea. As in they never died down. Given Korean Nationalists sent a delegation to the Paris Peace Conference, there were anarchist groups in Korea resisting the Japanese, etc even during WWII - I'd say no. Yes there was strong support for unification with Japan ans the upper/middle classes accepted Japanification very well and quickly....but the fact that there were groups after WWII who harassed anyone who had to do with Japanese occupation suggests otherwise.

Also: Hawaiians were not that resisty

>>Also. The government has little pride in Korea's merits and more pride in how to make Korea look cool abroad.

Link that South Korea's government offically supports such?

>>For instance. A comic artist from Denmark that makes a web comic about anthro countries made her Japan a nerdy stereotypical Asian with squinty eyes and a bowl cut while South Korea is some sort of cool dude manga character with European-esque eyes.

I use Soulseek a lot and some people on there are either assholes or complete idiots. First you have people with super slow download speeds and you are lucky if you can get 1 album from them. Then there are the people that cut you off or go offline when your in the middle of downloading something especially IF THEY'RE THE ONLY ONES THAT HAVE WHAT YOU WANT! Makes me so pissed off I want to scream at my computer screen sometimes. Then there is the losers with downloading complex downloading rules who will ban anyone and everyone who doesn't meet their standards. It's an amazing program when you have a good day on it and is actually pretty fun once you know what your doing. But every so often you will just have days where everything goes wrong, so wrong that you are just left with half an album you wanted out of many and the rage of a thousand suns.

Oh Haruhi this is terrible. I have some downloads that are on hold literally for months because the cocksucker who have files went offline one day and never came back, and apparently he is the only who has the stuff I want.

There were many, many albums that I had to complete with the files from another user because the one I started with vanished from the face of the earth halfway through. Worse yet is when you start downloading something in, let's say, 320 bitrate, but then the guy cuts you off and you are forced to download some shitty files with 96bitrate because they are the only other ones avaliable.

I understand that you're supposed to keep your voice down in a library, but when you're speaking to someone, they need to be able to hear you.

I work at a library, and when someone asks me for help, half the time they'll speak so quietly I have to ask them to repeat themselves at least twice. And then I still can't understand them, because the thought "maybe I'm speaking too quietly?" never occurs to them.

I hate it when people say popularity or a fan base doesn't matter in media and it shouldn't effect how you view it or feel about it.
That's right, it shouldn't but it does matter, peer pressure bitches, have you not heard of it?!
Jesus christ, you'd think people who hate hive minded normals and almost everything they like would understand a little.
like it or not, their opinions are gonna stick with you, even if it's just a tiny bit in the back of your mind, and it'll effect how you perceive whatever it is you're viewing.

It's kind of like this image here, if no one said anything about it, you'd see the image at face value and take it as you would.
but if I was to tell you the word 'sex' is spelled out in the background at the bottom. once you've seen it that would be all you could see when looking at the image, and you'd never be able to unsee it.
This is kind of what happened to me when I watched rozen maiden, at the time I didn't go to 4chan, but guess what it changed how I viewed the series a little. and just as you can't unsee the word in that image, I can't unassociate desu with /b/. I could name off other examples but I think you get the idea.

Besides all that, how popular something is has a huge impact on popular trends. you think producers aren't gonna want to get in on whats popular? why do you think we have so many call of duty clones flooding the market? you think it's a Haruhi damn coincidence or something?!
Someone might say to me "hey buddy, who cares if that thing you don't like is popular, what difference does it make?" but then clones take over the industry and you can't 'just ignore it' anymore becuase it's suddenly everywhere now. I bet people who didn't like dubstep were told to 'just ignore it' and now you can't get away with it.

I hate it when power adapters have the huge ass adapter part right at the plug, instead of inline.
Man, Fuck the people who keep making them like that, what the fuck is wrong with them? do they think people have unlimited power outlets or something? shit! even if you have a power strip, these things are so fucking fat they can block the plugs next to them. Do they think their device is the only one I'm gonna have plugged in or something? and then on top of that, these fat fucking pieces of shit are so heavy sometimes they'll hang loose off wall outlets.

I saw a picture a while ago with a surge strip with various plugs in it, with labels denoting different nationalities, as if the plugs represented the essence of each.

A small plug with two USB ports was Japanese, an adaptor plug with a second plug on the outside was German, a plug with the adapter in line was British, and the huge power adapter that took up half of each plug on either side of it was American.

I laughed.

I hate that too, its just a cost cutting measure. I also hate that those litle transformer thingys waste so much power. If you've ever touched one, its more than likely pretty warm, plugging one of those in is basically like turning on tiny heater on for 24 hours a day. The only way to stop that is to flip the switch off at the powerpoint, but then the appliance has to do something stupid like lose all its memory or reboot when you turn it back on or something.

I can't stand people with dogmatic political beliefs. I lean fairly far to the left, but that doesn't mean I think that every Republican is a terrible person who hates all women and black people. I work at a college, and it seems that every person there thinks that. During the election, all I could hear was everyone talking about how Romney is the devil, but never hearing any qualms with the right other than "they're all bad people"

People who get into relationships where they raise someone else's kid. If you had a kid with someone and it didn't work out with that person, there is probably something wrong with you being such a poor judge of character.
This is mostly something that makes me mad about my stepdad. My mom pretended to be a nice woman when she met him and introduced us, and then the poor sap fell for it and got married. Now he works over 70 hours a week while my mom lazes off and scolds him for not making enough money to support my younger siblings.
Not to mention her selling off his collection of playboy magazines, his rock and jazz records at garage sales, and pretty much anything that he ever enjoyed.
I don't know whether to feel sad for, or laugh at the idiots who fall into situations like that. They get every single negative of being with another person, but not even the benefits of raising their own blood. I wonder if they're just cuckolds in the closet.

It gets annoying when you try to make a new word altogether, and the spellcheck comes up.
Like when typing the word spellcheck.

You just want to put it how its right, yet it still comes up red that way. I've had some problems with other word conjugations in 2 different languages come up with the same problem and it annoys me, because I can google and see that it IS word, yet it still comes up red.
Maybe these people who can't tell what the red squiggle means are just very confident that they've used the correct word, like I am when I make those super long words.

Fucking fuck. When people [women] expect people to do things without being asked or directed to do them. As if I'm supposed to fucking look at every detail in this hellhole. It all looks like shit to me, it's a fucking trailer you cunt.

Oh, and, when they do ask me to do something, it goes like this:
"Okay, tomorrow, when you do your cleaning and all, you know that stuff you do on mondays. But tomorrow, what I want you to do is, well the bathroom doesn't need as much cleaning this time you know. But tomorrow there is one thing I need you to do, well there are some things that need to be done to the bathroom, like cleaning up the hair and stuff. But I want to put something in there. Well you have to take a fan out of there but I want that cleaned, but you know that cord above the mirror? Well I want to put a heater in there later on but I don't know where to put it. You have to take the fan out of there first and I want you to clean it. You know, clean it? It's dirty so it needs to be cleaned. But the heater needs to be put in there because the cord looks stupid just sitting over the mirror. But we need that cord, you know, for the heater. Where did you put the heater anyways? Find one of the heaters, but you have to take the fan out of the bathroom and clean it, can you do that for me? Okay."

Turns out she was asking me to take an extension cord out of the bathroom (that she put on the medicine cabinet last winter for fuck if I know reason) after she took a fan out of the bathroom and asked someone else to clean it and put it away. I was never told to touch that shitty ass stupid surge strip. But I got hell for not doing it. Fuck.

She also has a "list of things we need to do around the house" which is a fucking rant with hyphens. It's written in a way that it's impossible to fucking check off anything on it. Like "-clean everything. knick knacks, door jams, the tv, EVERYTHING.
-Dust everywhere, under things, on top of shelves and shit, dustEVERYTHING.
-In doubt? CLEAN IT."

Well you're very fucking welcome. And what is this "WE" shit?! I'm the one fucking doing it all, for fuck's sake. And I'm not the one that fucking chainsmokes so there's fucking black ass shit on everything, I'm not the one that makes a fucking mess of the kitchen every day, I'm not the one who is even welcome out in the living room. None of this is my shit.

And like fuck you pay for my food or internet. That's not an expense you even take care of, I know for a fact because I am the one who helps with shopping. The minimum wage renter is the one who pays for all the food and the internet. You're just upset that you aren't getting the $600/month SSI from me so you can spend it on fucking booze and cigarettes and gifts for your ingrate bitch wife. $70,000 went to her to take care of me, and all I got from her was two fucking pairs of khaki pants a year and my birthday dinners.

I hate how easily my flow of life is broken. I was going fine until this week came. I ate too much on Sunday because I went to some breakfast buffet and on sunday's that are usually filled with depression along with the willingness to do nothing, so of course everything looks like heaven even though all of it tastes like shit. So now that my fragile self image for this week is fucked making me more depressed, it also just happens to be Thanksgiving week and every day and night is filled with parents being extremely annoying by cleaning the entire house when the people coming over couldn't care less. It's also getting very cold now and when it gets cold, my room turns into an ice box making me extremely irritable as I am in constant state of dull pain that's further amplified by being overly self conscious as I can't do much about it since parents dictate my life. There is no warm comfort anymore, every day is spent rocking back and forth on a chair curled into myself using the computer waiting for time to exercise or till night so I can take a hot shower unless it is Thursday night or Friday and Saturday where I'm to high and stuffed with food to care. My body is almost locked up 24/7 unless by some miracle my bed feels warm enough to easily fall asleep in and my skin isn't being stabbed by a thousand needles of body hair that are constantly standing. I can't even meditate in a sober state because I'm so uncomfortable. All of this combined with no escape makes me extremely sensitive to any negative thoughts about myself or things people do that make me angry. Tonight was the last straw. You know how you just read something someone posted anywhere online and you just get so jealous about their life that you want to punch a hole in the wall and kill yourself? Well that just happened, suicidal depression here I come. I feel like I'm in the final circle of hell right now, there is no fucking escape. There's just pain and negativity everywhere I turn. I really hope that I don't explode on my family Thursday because they piss me off even if I'm in a good mood. Only getting high off of inflicting pain on myself (ghost pepper based hot sauce slowly sipped until my body just goes "your dieing" and releases all endorphins it can causing peace of mind for once. poor man's morphine/heroine I guess) is the only thing that makes me feel good right now and makes me mentally numb for a couple days after. I'm not in the mood to do anything right now even watch anime since I can't relax. I'm gonna attempt to lay in my ice bed now and hope the sun comes up quickly. On the bright side I'm looking forward to all the left over shit I'm gonna have from thanksgiving and a concert to go to in a little bit over a month.

Are you serious? That's like complaining about your front door having a lock on it because it makes it less convenient to get into your house. It's not about what you're allowed to do with your computer, it's about what everyone else isn't allowed to do.

everyone else who? no one uses my computer but me.
If I had locks on doors in my house that I owned and lived in alone, and they wouldn't let me into certain rooms, I'd brake those fucking locks off and walk into those fucking rooms if I damn well please.
It's nothing like a front door lock that makes it inconvenient to get into your home becuase you can still get in. windows isn't asking for a key, giving me a simple warning or checking if it's really me the owner before letting me in, it's not letting me in at all, period.
>> No. 18717 [Edit]

It's fine to consider yourself the only user of your computer as long as you never use the internet. Otherwise, the door analogy holds; as long as you're online, you should ALWAYS behave as if you're on a multi-user machine, because you are.

And I've never heard of Windows flat-out refusing to let the user do something unless it would have immediately catastrophic effects (like deleting some important system library).

Filipino media. Because the people I live with are Filipino, I would expect them to sometimes watch Filipino television. I've lived with people that range from a variety of ethnicity, watching television that correspond with their ethnicity, and I survived just fine-- chinese television (at least the ones that I watched) were funny (dating shows) and if not, they were just serious news all the time. Hispanic television were just well done dramas (at least, from what I see, since I can't understand the languages), and in the morning, scantily clad women dancing to catchy music. Korean and Japanese? Well, I loved them to be honest.

Then I saw Filipino television. The first thing I realized was that the same commercials showed EVERY single time. Like, after every program, or more accurately, every 5 minutes, I would hear the same commercial loop for the entire month until they'd get new commercials. That is fucking annoying. The commercials are disgusting as well, if it's not people crying incredibly loudly, it's people shouting incredibly loudly. The programs, range from stolen American game show concepts or completely atrocious television dramas that feature the same range of actors for each of the shows. (Seriously the same male actor is the main character in two different shows that air right after one another). The plot of these shows are seriously the same. There is a happy go lucky main character whose life gets disturbed by a totally cliched and unrealistic antagonist. There is almost always a gay comedic character in EVERY Haruhidamn show. In EVERY Haruhidamn show, someone has to die by getting run over by a car or a gunfight. I've been watching different television dramas from this particular station (unwillingly, since my computer is right next to the TV), and over 4 years of this.. I could safely say that I am correct. What's worse is that the effects for the fantasy series are just laughable. Compared to Kamen Rider, where the enemies are just obviously people in body suits, the "fantasy" like characters here just have facepaint, tape, and wigs you can easily get in a party store. And they really try to pass it off as an adult dramatic show. It's unfathomable how this passes off as a show in one of the biggest television networks from the country.

Now, let's talk about the gameshows and talkshows. The gameshows, like I mentioned are stolen copies of America's gameshows. Not much to be said there, but their choice in music is rather strange. They almost always play music from an Anime or Videogames. I could hear Final Fantasy, Naruto, etc etc as the playlist. It makes me wonder, do they get the rights to play that shit or what? Sometimes, the buzz-in music is so strange that I can't possibly think they got the rights to it or not. An example is PBS's show Arthur-- the titular character's baby sister Kate has a distinct crying sound. They use that exact same sound in some of their shows. Is that even legal? They are even around 2 months late when it comes to music. Gangnam Style was just recently picked up and they are going INSANE over it. Every possible moment where they can insult or make fun of Koreans (and trust me, they do it in a very smug way that makes me assume they think they are superior in every way shape or form), they play the Haruhidamn Gangnam Style music and dance to it, almost mockingly. Same goes with Justin Bieber and almost every other "in" thing that Americans have.

Now, let's get to the talkshows.. The main annoyance. The talkshows are hosted by characters who think of themselves as incredibly perfect. They think of themselves as superior to every other race in existence, and they insult other races whenever they can, particularly the Japanese. Whenever they get the chance, they'll always make fun of the Japanese language, comparing their language to insults that sound similar to their language. Everytime they see anything about anime, they'll treat it like a kid's show and mention that their animation is WAAAAY better, claiming that since a Filipino had worked on the Simpson's movie, they own the entire franchise. This happened with the Bourne movie that was filmed in the country-- the news, for an entire week, had the movie as the main highlight-- as if they own the movie just because it's being filmed in the country-- as if they are the popular ones and that they deserve all the attention. This carries over in the news as well. You expect news to be.. well about, news. I can call the Bourne identity being filmed in the Philippines news, but does it really justify being mentioned for about a week or more? The newscasters are very annoying as well. It's like they WANT to be American and speak in a very annoying deep voice, even when it's not their natural voice. They do this while reporting rape and murder. There is something about that... using a fake voice, to report about atrocious acts-- that just doesn't ring well with me. Oh by the way, trust me on this. They will insert almost every self-praise they can think of in whatever is showing. "Everyone knows Filipinos are the most talented in the world!", "Filipinos are crucial to the world's society!" (All while in a mocking or insulting tone, as if they were the best). -- All of this is to be expected in the television of a specific culture or ethnicity, but... when was the last time I heard a channel say "WE ARE THE BEST, FUCK EVERY OTHER ETHNICITY" (That's exactly, what they're saying, anyway).

So from what I've witnessed BECAUSE of the media, I can only assume that Filipinos in general are narcissistic douchebags that rip off of other people (television shows and music), insult every other race (except whites) at any chance they can get, and think that their own media is just as good as any other. I think, because that their media is so weak, cliched television shows, poor ideas, no talent in actors.. they rip off of everything else and are in denial about how bad they are, while being completely obnoxious any chance they get.

Of course, I really don't think this is how Filipinos are. Or any ethnicity or culture. I don't think they are determined by the media, but they do a fine job of being a complete annoyance. And because they can still air this shit, people actually LIKE this, SUPPORT this, and more surprisingly, WATCH IT. This can lead me to assume that people... are actually like what I think they are.

I feel bad because I'm talking about an entire group of people here (well, more like an entire group of people's one specific television network), but holy hell is it getting to me. I thought Tim and Eric was a joke ass show. Hell, the entirety of Adult Swim felt like a joke to me, but that's the issue here. It was a good joke. Kind of like a good troll to me, it didn't take itself as seriously, and well, even though they fucked up sometimes, they continue to churn out tolerable shit. Adult Swim doesn't even have their own channel iirc, they are just sub-Cartoon Network, right? This particular Filipino network I"m talking about.. Well, it's the most popular out of all the other channels from what I'm seeing. It's a joke. A bad joke that takes itself way seriously, a joke that thinks it's actually funny but isn't, at all.

I could just be racist though, although I don't feel particularly biased against Filipinos. I'm just typing what I've experienced over the years, and only until now have I felt like writing this long, unnecessary rant.

TL;DR I'm very aware that self-justification is a global thing, but these guys make it completely obvious and are obnoxious about it.

I feel like puking every time I look at her anyways. I didn't know someone could get so ugly on top of wearing so much scented garbage and other beauty products that it's like she just dolled up a corpse because that's what she looks and smells like constantly. Don't get me started about how she complains about the way I look and smell sometimes when I'm complete normal at the moment and just haven't shaved yet or something. At least my body isn't part plastic. There's no winning with her, she always needs something to fight over. Whenever she comes near me to kiss me I cringe every time, so disgusting. If she ever actually hugged me I would die of shock because of how horrifying of an experience it would be. She walks around in very little clothes sometimes too and I have no care in the world if I see people naked but my parents...oh Haruhi what the fuck their bodies are the most ugly things known to man, it's almost unreal. My mother isn't that fat, she's more lumpy and her skin all over is just ruined from all the beauty products she uses and father kinda looks like some super hairy over grown baby that complains about being fat but shoves 10,000 pounds of food down his throat every night with a salad to pretend he's healthy and only exercises once on a Friday for a little bit before going out to our usual buffet or wherever we wanna pig out which is fine for me but for him since he eats like he's at one every night and drinks like a fish it's not doing him any favors. But even being the icons of imperfection and everything disgusting they still talk about how everyone else is a freak or crazy including me even though they dance around the dot every time they don't like something about me that they can't avoid. Of all things and types of people I've seen them call disgusting they are the most disgusting of all. One of the things that gets me the most is how my father has a constant need to display how weird and disgusting any display of affection between anyone not heterosexual but then all of a sudden in my mind I instantly get a near vomit inducing visual of this fat, man-baby walrus pig and the lumpy corpse painter making love to each other in their bed room. I'm starting to get sick just typing this.

I'm not even 'pinoy' though.

I think as time goes by, we're gonna be seeing a lot more kids growing up without natural fathers.
The way our fucked up society is now, it encourages women to sleep around and jump from relationship to relationship. it really doesn't help matters when the legal system is extremely biased towards women allowing them not just custody of children by default regardless of how fucked up the mom might be, but they also entitle women to screw over their men financially. they have very little incentive not to get into relationships with as many men as possible. and by the time they're old and ugly and no one wants their shit, they're supposed to 'settle down' and stick it out with some poor guy and make him to take care of her kids. It shouldn't be long until the average household has a different father for each child. Maybe then men will stop putting up with this and empowering women so much, then get serious about replacements. if we had affordable robotic women, there would be no need for real ones. think about it, with artificially intelligent robotic women the only possible downside is not being able to have a child, but in a society where you're expected to raise other people's children and not your own there's really no down side.

Indonesians are the lions of the publishing industry.

One of the bad things about Western culture is that people are incredibly lazy and feel far more entitled in comparison to people in poorer countries. I was watching this documentary about these British people working in Indonesia, not only did they work way slower than the Indonesians but some of them just had the worst attitude, like complaining about being shouted at or working too hard even though there were so many other human beings for whom this is a regular thing. Watching it made me feel embarassed about my own laziness and self-entitlement.

I get so mad reading your post that I want to punch my fist through the screen to your face. Are seriously that dumb believing that the "western civilasition" is lazy? I would also be angry if I saw/work the awful non-union work conditions in asia.
We get cheap shit from it.
Going from a desk job to the ground floor is not a easy task, those factory workers have done it for months and years. Do you have any critical thinking that the program is so only angled to make them look dumb. British people are inbred idiots what do you really expect.
Talk with me in fifty years again when they are fully "privileged" like us, because nobody is except for the ruling class of any society.
You are ignorant.

Fuck you.

People who go through extreme lengths to impress others.
This happens often when relatives come to visit. All of a sudden, my parents and I "have" to do meaningless chores such as steam-cleaning the carpets, power-washing the sidewalks, rearranging everything in the garage by alphabetical order, prepare a fucking 5-star billion-course meal, so on and so forth, simply because a person decides to stay for a couple of hours.
It wouldn't bother me as much if they actually wanted us to do it for our sake, but instead they just want to impress one of our family members who probably gives less of a shit than me and the rest of the world combined.
I don't mind helping out, but damn, this just gets on my nerves. I still don't understand why people care more about someone they see once a year than they do about their own family.

choking hazard warnings.

If you're stupid enough to try and eat those small parts, you deserve to choke on them.

So small children should die because their caretaker is stupid/irresponsible?

Excessive hazard warnings are a pretty typical thing for edgy dudes to pretend to be annoyed by. But they don't effect your life in any way so why bother.
>> No. 19196 [Edit]
The disclaimers' purpose isn't to protect kids, they're there for protection against ridiculous lawsuits. They also won't prevent retards from endangering infants - if a person is clueless enough to feed infants crap, they probably aren't going to read a warning on a piece of paper and would probably ignore it even if they did happen to read it.
>> No. 19199 [Edit]
if small children are stupid enough to cover their heads with plastic bags and suffocate themselves, try to swallow their toys, or drink chemicals from under the sink. then yes. It's called natural selection, survival of the fittest. If they're to young to read, there's no point to the label, if they are old enough to read it, they should have enough common sense not to do what the warning says without it being there. so what, if a toy with small parts didn't have a choking warning on it, you'd let your kid eat it? Haruhi people are stupid these days.
At least power outlets don't have warnings on them for retards saying something like "Don't insert forks or other metal objects into holes", or pens with warnings not to stab yourself or other people with them (yet).
Besides, people are going to so stupid shit warnings or not. Do you think warnings on skateboards would keep retarded teens from braking their legs?

I kinda get what you're saying but calling babies idiots is kind of strange

Survival of the fittest doesn't really apply in a lot of first-world societies like Sweden and such. With widely accessible healthcare, modern medicine reducing infant mortality to barely anything, plentiful food, and very little dangers to speak of, you could easily survive until adulthood just by doing nothing. It's really hard to just die like a wild animal without actively trying to do so - if you start sitting on your ass right this moment and refuse to eat or drink, soon someone's going to be calling an ambulance on you and the state will dutifully keep you alive well into your 30s-40s in various institutions.

Being someone with a lot to buy online when you can't use anywhere but Amazon (I suck at life so bad I don't even have my own ID or a bank account and I'm getting locked out of paypal because they say I need some ID all of a sudden) and you don't live alone sucks (let's just leave it at I have a lot of personal things I want). You're so limited. Besides that stuff I'm a big music collector, ebay and discogs are where the good stuff is at. Amazon mostly just gets the more well known stuff and the least interesting rare stuff that mostly wasn't wanted anywhere else. I'm looking for a lot of rare noise vinyl and cassettes (don't ask me why, I just like to horde weird noise shit). I've gotten all I can from Amazon and there is literally nothing left there for me when it comes to that stuff. As for other music, a lot of what I want is very expensive there or usually not there at all. The nearest record shop doesn't have much that I want and is very far away so I don't get driven there very often and whenever I even hint that I want to go there I can hear my mother die a little inside from how much of a pain in the ass it will be for her.

The way most people seem to be almost completely unaware of the world around them, or maybe they just don't care. I make an effort to make other peoples life easier if it doesn't cost me anything, and I try to not be in the way of other people.
An example is not walking slow as a darn zombie in the middle of the aisle at the store, completely oblivious of the people who doesn't enjoy casually strolling around the convenience store for hours upon hours.
Convenience store etiquette in general seems to be something that people don't get, put your things on the conveyor belt in such a way that its easy for the cashier to scan them and then stand in a way that enables the next person to put their stuff on the belt. Is it really that hard?
Another example is while waiting for the bus, if I see one coming that Im not taking I wave for it to drive past me, the drivers always seem to appreciate it and I cant think of a good reason not to do it, the average person obviously can because they never do that.

Do you hate your fellow human beings that much? Don't scream on the train, don't play loud music with your phone in public places, don't litter and don't dress inappropriately.

Walking and standing in line are two tricks that people cant seem to get a grip on, they should teach people how to do it properly in school.
>> No. 21117 [Edit]
>An example is not walking slow as a darn zombie in the middle of the aisle at the store
Most people do that because they're looking for groceries.

This is why I'm glad those self checkouts are becoming more common. Just walk up and scan your stuff then put in it and walk out.
>> No. 21119 [Edit]
Too bad it's a slow process crossing over. in my experience, people would rather wait in a ten minute line than use a empty self checkout. When I worked at a grocery store that had them, people avoided them like a plague and some older people would bad mouth them. I figure people are both too stupid and afraid to learn how to use it. used to see the same thing at the post office with their self service machine, even when the line was out the door no one wanted to use it.

Yeah, but at least it's becoming more common, the option to use it is there.
>> No. 21125 [Edit]
Yes it's nice, but the problem is those machines aren't exactly cheap. While they may save money compared to paying cashiers, if no one wants to use them it defeats the point. The grocery store I worked at was a new chain to the western coast states (fresh and easy) self checkout machines were a big gimmick for them and the majority of their machines in any given store were self checkout. Now they're going bankrupt and closing down many of their branches. The only other stores I've seen with them are walmart and home depot, and I figure that's becuase they're big enough to afford experimenting with it. Personally I love the things and use them whenever I shop somewhere that has them.
>> No. 21126 [Edit]
People just have to get used to them. Things like this usually take time. They're starting to catch on here.
>> No. 21127 [Edit]
I dunno about elsewhere, but I know that here in Montreal if you just wave "no" and are the only person at the stop, the bus will just go past. Usually.

You just have to make an obvious gesture, like backing away from the bus/stop or waving him ahead or something.

I dislike them, honestly. But I like human interaction. I figure the big box stores have them so that cashiers don't have to waste time fumbling with a dozen 13" 2x4s to scan them while customers with smaller items wait.

Because sometimes things simply can't be done any quicker, and rushing leads to mistakes.

just chill out dude, relax, and take some time to smell the roses. Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. good things come to those who wait.

I said something. I now not everything can be done quicker. I just don't see what's so horrible about it. Maybe it's just because I'm a hedonistic fuck. I can see what can be good about gratification that comes later, but people act like you can't have both.

>Life moves pretty fast
That's why I like things that can be done quicker to be done quicker. Then you can do more things. I'm not saying everyone should do things as quickly as they can, but I don't see why if someone wants do something quickly to why they shouldn't.

They do nothing but critique my eating habits. They strike up a conversation and just wait for me to respond with something they can use to attack me with.

>"You shouldn't be drinking green tea the caffeine is bad"

>"why do you eat rice? dont you know it's empty carbs and is bad for you" -type of shit.
I don't fucking care. I actually jog in the mornings. I doubt a cup of rice is going to critically destroy my life. Lately they have been wanting me to de-tox with them, I was semi-interested until they said the kit they were going to buy is like 200$ and it's the only one worth getting.

Have you ever noticed that a lot of people that just eat whatever they want but have control over it like when they eat and what they at those times along with exercising are usually under 150 pounds but so many more people that try to be as healthy as possible are near morbidly obese or just noticeably very fat? At least from where I come from that's mostly what I see. I was surprised that when I weighed myself last week out of curiosity I was around 133-135 pounds (older, non-digital scale but still accurate). When I was 4 years younger and had periods where I was anorexic I was around this weight range and I eat a bit more now or maybe I don't and I don't realize it in the long run (I've certainly calmed down when it comes to stuffing my face on weekends though especially compared to those days when I was anorexic during most of the week). I don't understand but I'm satisfied maybe my body is just really fucked up from so much abuse, I'm also a heavy stimulant user and I'm very tense and hyper active in both body and mind sometimes.

That's because it doesn't fucking matter what you eat as long as you don't go overboard.

Just don't eat, like, 300g of sugar a day and you'll be fine. Same goes for eating 1000g of fat, or 6000 calories. People that try to strictly regulate it get stressed, which just adds to their already bullshit eating habits.

Oh boy:

Teenagers, they are always trying to act cool and fit in, and they use so many methods to achieve this it's not funny. And people say we are the ones who obsess over things...

Gangsters, especially here in Germany. I don't really think I need to explain why.

Garbage mainstream music where the same shit gets churned out every week. I am open to almost all genres of music but every genre has those ''entry level'' type bands that just suck major ass. Metal it's stupid nu metal shit, rock you have all these teenie bands, etc.

Bad friends. Seriously every friend I had back in highschool was a complete douchebag to me. Friends need to be there for you, you need to be able to talk about them with your hobbies and other stuff.

Emoticons, I don't even know why. Sites like youtube and reddit probably played a huge part in making me hate this.

This could maybe be a more controversial one, but people who watch anime that don't really deserve to. I'm not taking about normal everyday day time airing anime either but I am more referring to moe stuff. The amount of normals who look at moe anime is depressing.

Also related to the last complaint, people who try to be uncool to be cool. You know like this whole ''such a nerd!'' fad. The fuck is that shit?

Sleeping. It is unnecessary. Dream worlds are not very often better than real life, and the way you wake up and don't remember what you dreamed about creeps me out. Not to mention that it is just less time on the computer.

Guro. A ton of people who have a guro fetish do it because they mix fapping and hate together. I don't want to see cute 2D girls being mutilated. Rape I don't mind so much and it is pretty unavoidable when trying to find doujinshi.

I could probably go on like this for a while. Maybe I'll post more when I am not so tired. Ah yeah and of course all the things Tohno-chan tends to hate as a whole, you know 4chan, emoticons, Ford Drivers etc.

I don't know, I think it's possible that there are people who look at gore as a kind of art, kind of like how gothic art shows the beauty of darkness. It does attract a lot of pretentious teenage ass holes who like to talk about pain and darkness the whole day though. Or the ''I'm so sadistic and evil'' crowd. It's sad that people can't just be themselves.

It often feels good to feel bad, as most people who understand moe will admit. The remaining dispute is simply one of degree and personal taste.

You can't compare a girl crying to a girl getting her arms ripped off and eyes stabbed out and I really hate it when guro fans make comparisons like this. You're not even taking into account that people can cry tears of joy, or from being near a cut onion or from getting something in their eyes. I get that it's what you're into and I have no right to criticize you for your personal tastes, but it sickens me when you people try rationalize it and can't admit you're just into some fucked up shit.

Didn't mean to come off sounding as much as an elitist pompous ass as you made it seem. (I guess I just have trouble communicating with others.)
My problem stems from looking at Japanese anime as a whole and what status quo animation developments were implied. I suppose I should open my heart and start thinking of stuff like Gundam Wing as an oldschool series. Even though it feels a little wrong.

I hate life. Life is inherently brutal; everything is about capitalizing on the weakness of other blobs of chemicals. I want to inflict mercy on to as many people as possible, but I am too incompetent.
I hate how people say "life is hard," and then go on to have kids. You fucking idiots, not only are you making life harder for yourself when your life is already a goddamn exercise in misery, you're inflicting meaningless suffering on a being that never even wanted to be.
I hate suffering. There is no meaning in it, like we are lied to to believe. If someone is worthless, it is going to suffer a lot, and at the end of the suffering, there is only more suffering because the suffering doesn't fix anything, and nothing can fix it. I think it was the anime version of Welcome to the NHK, where Satou says something like "life isn't a drama. There is no resolution, only the endless repetition of vague insecurities." Nothing can be fixed. I think this is why I like guro: it exposes the true nature of suffering. Or maybe it's just this goddamn SSRI.
I hate SSRIs. They make me aggressive and unable to feel pleasure.

Damn right.
I've heard people here try to justify it by claiming they do it so the kids can support them, but not only is there no garantie of that but it would take decades before that's even possible. Besides, if things are so hard you aren't going to have any hope of raising a kid who will be able to take care of you so much as raise a kid who will become a burn out druggy or something and that's not going to help you one bit. People are just fucking stupid.

There's a possibility the kid will become a druggy. There's also a possibility the kid will become a likeable person with a warm smile. There's a possibility the kid will be retarded. There's a possibility you are retarded. Life is exciting and mysterious, isn't it?

I think the rationale behind producing offspring is more in the line of personally bringing the baton to the next generation.

Hows that going to help you if you're poor and hopeless or similar? Sure anything's possible but the simple fact is a kid born to a rich family is going to be more likely to succeed in life than a kid raised in a crackhouse.

It is somewhat frustrating, as the condition is abused to the point where others will have plenty of anecdotal evidence to counter anything I say, and many people just think of it as a creative way of saying you are lazy, so convincing them I suffer from it is not in my best interest.

Construction workers. Why are they so universally obnoxious?

It's also a way for the owners of the site/service to make clear they wash their hands with regards to illegal/offensive content linked from other places. It is egotistical, and it has to be, because they've potentially got their asses on the line.

>scammers are indeed out there, but they'd make up a tiny fraction of whats getting linked in forums. If it's really such a problem for any particular site they should hire more moderators.

Moderators aren't even a possibility on some services. You can't reasonably expect, say, valve to have enough moderators to read every steam chat as it takes place -- actually I'd rather that not happen at all -- or even just check all links that get sent.
As for the fraction of links on a medium/big service that get flagged as spam/phishing/illegal and the effectiveness of that kind of measure in repelling legal action and successful attacks, it's a good question, but I don't think we have, or will ever have, any concrete data.

Fake noises.

Fake discussions.

Fake problems designed to conceal real problems.

In silence, one can perceive real problems with enough clarity and details.

But instead, buzzwords. With fictional tangents. Without any aesthetic merits at all, to say the least, except derivatives. Maybe they are actually derivatives. That might explain their utter impotence on dealing what they claim to.

I want silence for a little while.

If I can't get it, at least I want to hear poetry on my TVs. Good poetry, not commercial jingles.

I want people that I come across on the street to accidentally perform a scene from Hamlet, like at night, in the traffics.

I want to listen to people making poetry while inside the train at busy hours. Poetry about the working men. It seems that there are an utter lack of them nowadays. I want to listen to some which represent our mundane and bleak existence, without eventually making us passive like an opium. Cheap, pleasant arts tend to do that.

Or maybe someone singing 'Street Fighting Man' from The Rolling Stones while pushing each others as the slam opens. That sounds exciting, maybe a chaos would ensue. I have a list of people coming out of my mind that I want to burn alive.

My shitty memory and non-existent attention span. Theories, events, things and concepts that I was at some point deeply invested within have a tendency to become amorphous masses of thought-fragments that I never quite trust enough to adequately reflect the intricacies of the original subject. Loss seemingly occurs at random, and I far too often discover the wikipedia article I am reading at any given time is one I've gone through years prior. I am frequently led to consider the futility of my existence, as reading shit on the internet has been the predominant use of my time for the past 6 years.

Indiscriminate accusations of pretension and verbosity. In distinct communities I occasionally interact with, I've taken notice of a recurring pattern of interactions that are always precipitated by very specific factors. Essentially, when airing some form of criticism or anything that conflicts with prevailing site values, I will invariably elicit some vague attack directed at my prose. It's always some imprecise, subjective quip that the resident prose-attacker feels compelled to dribble out. Actual superfluity is almost never the case in these instances, and I don't see how employing certain words that whoever is issuing the complaint regards as flowery universally makes one a pretentious writer.

People often take a more utilitarian view of language, which is to say that language is merely a tool used to achieve an end. Therefore, the most 'efficient' use of the language would involve using words that convey the message in as few words and to as wide an audience as possible. Using a hundred words where ten would have sufficed thus seems like a waste of time.
For example, I quote you with: "In distinct communities I occasionally interact with, I've taken notice of a recurring pattern of interactions that are always precipitated by very specific factors."
I can summarize that into a far shorter and far less annoying to read sentence: "When talking with others, they always complain about the same thing". I'm pretty sure I captured the gist of your sentence, and with thirteen fewer words.

In addition, people associate complicated words with different types of people and strata of society. If I had substituted 'sesquipedalian words' for 'complicated words' where the latter served just fine, it seems like I'm trying to emphasize the fact that I'm 'intellectual' enough to know the word 'sesquipedalian', and thus you should respect me for it.

Finally, long and confusing words are often used purposefully to confuse people, such as in certain legal texts. People have thus developed a certain mistrust to the use of confusingly long words where short ones will do, and your behaviour evokes this emotion in them.

In short, there are many valid reasons why people don't throw words around pointlessly. It is up to you to decide how you communicate, but you should be aware of the effects of your choice of words. Communication is a bridge, in that both ends are important.
>> No. 24932 [Edit]
>I'm pretty sure I captured the gist of your sentence, and with thirteen fewer words
You reduced the complexity of the string but at the cost of context and precision. The meaning of your simplification is distinct from purely a semantic standpoint; there's just more (arguably necessary) information present in the original. As this is an anonymous image board, withholding that information would reduce the clarity of the post - you get more words in the aim of mitigating ambiguity and perhaps creating a richer scenario.

Verbosity is content characterized by an excess of words; syllable count and a subjective sense of word complexity are irrelevant to this definition. Yes, I could choose an absolutely basic set of words but that would be no fun at all and would make the prose boring and nondescript. I'm fine if you call me a thesaurus molesting faggot, but don't tell me I'm being profligate or ineffective.

I suppose a further point of annoyance would be the assumption that I'm straight up bad at writing because I dare to use words in excess of three syllables. The principles you've listed I generally agree with, but they can't be regarded as anything other than the more rudimentary points you'd encounter in literally elementary school. I don't get mad at people who use big words because I don't automatically assume they're attempting to draw attention to their genitalia. I couldn't be content in doing this as I don't believe there to be any inherently "pretentious" words or linguistic structures. Even if this were exactly what they were doing, why would I subsequently ignore what they were attempting to communicate, halt their train of ideas and bitch about an inconsequential, subjective issue?

Having a successful career does not necessarily require intelligence, it simply requires a healthy amount of motivation- and typically a high degree of social aptitude. The first has no correlation with intellectual capacity, and the latter is actually inversely proportional to it... speaking in terms of averages.

I was bored so I checked my mom's email out of curiosity.

For some reason my college email'd her instead of me about defaulting on grants I was under the impression I didn't have to pay back. She hadn't even opened the email and it had been sitting there for three weeks.

Looks like I owe $12K++ now though. Yay. Thats going to be a great conversation. Just when I felt like I was making some progress on being less of a leech on them.

Trying to talk with people. The close-minded culture of having to always "be right." It would be somehow shameful to admit having ever been wrong about anything even if it was just some stupid bullshit you didn't ultimately even have a well thought out reason for.
Emotional investment in preestablished conclusions instead of trying to reach the most correct ones. Just give in to your basest instincts. Only accept what fits your worldview. Everything in life is just a big dickwaving contest.

If you start off knowing you're right you'll never allow yourself to move on to actually becoming more right.
But what do I know? I'm just some mentally unstable waste of air.
Better just shut up than try to associate critical thought with myself. A good ad hominem has sunk easier to swallow perfectly unrelated issues than that.

Maybe I'd complain less if I went to live in the monkey enclosure at the zoo. Or more, but futiloly mumbling stupid cynical crap about monkeys at the walls like this might be better than doing that about people.

I hate my inability to relate or feel a connection to people. In real life I can't hold a conversation or maintain a connection with someone for more than ten minutes, and even less so online. It's gotten to the point where I rarely even use anything on the internet that has some human presence to it (such as social media, podcasts, let's plays, etc). I wish I could enjoy being around people because I still fantasize about having friends, but I just feel so uncomfortable around humans now-a-days.

What I don't like is how difficult it is to find high-quality, impartial, well researched information on controversial issues.

With science, you can find high quality information on, say, the causes of global warming, in a peer reviewed journal. In science you get the facts, no bullshit, it is rigorous and everything is peer reviewed. But with stuff like politics or the news most of the stuff is either low quality stuff or created by people with an agenda who are trying to persuade you towards a certain belief.

For example in Australia we have basically 5 channels. The ABC and SBS have news which is fairly unbiased as far as I can tell. Meanwhile channel 9, 7 and 10 which are privately owned have news which is mostly stuff like 'dog saves owner from fire', 'there was a car crash in Sydney in this suburb', etc. Both don't really go into great detail about issues.

My understanding is that in Japan a lot of the games the West knows as visual novels are called "adventure games", and that we don't typically use this term to describe them since adventure game refers to a different sort of game over here.

I remember a few months ago when a relatively newer VA who passed away, there were many threads mourning and reacting in an over-emotional way over her death despite most of them probably not knowing her name before the incident. I doubt most people cry over these sort of things, I get the feeling the majority of the time they need to overplay in order to show they care. There's nothing wrong with being sad over it, but the way the do it seems extremely superficial and fake.

Sometimes I read posts on here and can't remember if it was me who wrote them. My memory is really bad and I don't remember anything, and I share a lot of opinions with the people here.

Anyway. I went to this chat on discord that's allegedly for NEETs and hikkis and other outcats or whatever, but it's just like pretty much any chat I've seen. Maybe it's as some guy said, "The medium is the message", in that by their choice of platform, they're telling lots about themselves, and it's nothing good. All those chatrooms just end up being inane circlejerks about nothing in particular between a couple of the most persistent posters. The reason I was attracted to it in the first place is not because I'm attached to the idea of "a NEET identity" or whatever, but because it's yet another attempt to find some common ground with other people. And that has been increasingly hard, with more and more people learning about the whole "hikkikomori" thing and being drawn to it. It's a case of "no true hikksman", but I really think that most of the people there don't really belong, and would be better off somewhere else.

I just want someone interesting to talk to, someone with whom I would have more than nothing in common, and who would be equally interested in talking to me. I'm not even sure what I'm looking for. There was a guy I met on /jp/ in 2011 and we spoke for a year, and it was really nice, but then he just dropped off the face off the earth. It doesn't seem like I'm asking for much, but all the people I meet seem to fall into the same 3-4 categories or personalities that I'm just sick of. It's a bit lonely.

What I find oddly ironic about normies is how backwards they are. Try talking to an "educated" and "tolerant" person about anything and all you get back is barking about how moral/strong they are. "Trashy" people you can at least hold a conversation with because they're not obsessed with the status game of appearing 100% right 100% of the time.

It's sort of like in high school when I started hanging around the goths. I never really fit in with them either but I preferred them by far to the jockey/preppy type of shithead.
>> No. 29951 [Edit]
There are decent people going undercover among the normies. You'd have to catch them alone, because they can't take the mask off before their other friends, but those people usually seek exactly that kind of one-on-one conversation. Drop some hints and see if they drop some too. Even though they try to "integrate", they are probably just as bored and lonely.

Having actual conversations shouldn't work like a secret society. I'm guessing the problem is it's not "acceptable" to tell a poor conversant to shut up or leave.

they do that so people don't steal their pens.

the flower is used because it's not stupidly out of place with a bundle of them sticking out of a jar, and if you try to put it in your pocket it takes up much more room than it otherwise would and gets your attention (most pen thefts are muscle memory from using your own pen that you don't realize until a while later).

The reason the people never change out the pens when they run out of ink is to fuck with the morons who didn't think to bring a damned pen with them to sign or fill out paperwork when they ought to have known that they would be doing so once they got there.

Maybe people should stop being so fucking sensitive. Words really can't hurt you, and I'd much rather hear someone tell me honestly that they hate my guts and find me an annoyance than for them to lie or avoid the subject, trying to get rid of me some other way that only wastes both of our time. What's true is true, there's no point to getting upset about just knowing the truth. If someone hates me, or find something I do annoying, they aren't helping either of us by not saying it. And this goes even more if it was someone I was close to, if I had them. I'd much rather them tell me honestly if something was bothering them, then even if we don't work it out, we would at least be aware of how each other felt about it. And if the truth threatens to disrupt or destroy a system, that system isn't entitled to it's continued stability. I don't know, maybe I'm not making sense, but I can't see any downside to just saying what you really think unless you can't handle knowing that other people don't agree with you or think things you don't like. I'd honestly rather be shot in the face by someone who hated me than for someone who found me annoying to try to fuck me over in an underhand way.

I can't stand how damn never every website is run by people who think websites need to be made fashionable and overhaul their layouts to match popular trends every few years. Every time these sites get major updates it's almost always for the worse with this garbage minimalist/metro shit. They remove options for the sake of a clean look. They hide menus and buttons behind other hidden menus and buttons like you're solving a puzzle box. They replace unmistakable images, text, or icons with vague rudimentary shapes shapes.

The close mindedness and stupidity of Americans and the west. Some European countries are cool, but I just really fucking hate the US. There are so many shitty things they've done throughout history that they either think was a good thing, or they just don't know about it. I hate how they actually believe that the US is the best country of all time, and how they still think the world sees them as the good guys. They also fear when a different country starts to rise up in power and ALWAYS feel the need to put a stop to them before it's too late. Every single country the US gets it's hands on, they fucking ruin it! And I haven't even mentioned American culture! The youth thinks its so cool to be bad, to do drugs, to steal, ect. and the media they consume does nothing but fuel this belief. It's pretty much why I watch anime, because I can't stand American entertainment. Their most popular tv shows is garbage like "It's always sunny in Philadelhphia", and their cartoons (while some decent) is for the most part just crap made to squeeze as much money as possible! When I watch anime, I feel for these characters. I cry with them, I laugh with them, but this does not happen with garbage like... Family Guy. A bunch of pop references and fart jokes is enough to make every 12 year old piss their pants and think Family Guy is in any way a "clever" show. Bottom line is, FUCK Americans!

While I'm not going to go defending each and every action the american government has taken in its past, nor will I defend "culture", I will defend the principles america was founded on, which I truly believe to be a good basis for government. Of course, the current state of it is not ideal. One great thing about it is, each state has its own laws and regulations, allowing for a lot of variance throughout the country. Of course, the federal government has been ever growing throughout the last 100-150 years, and corruption is not unheard of. Mass media culture is of course horrible and only has a negative influence, but where isn't it? I don't think that culture properly reflects every single person living in any country, be it America or whatever other place. I live there, and I don't hate it where I am, although it would be better to live in a place with less people. Cities are usually garbage with some exceptions that I do like a bit.

I can't stress how much I hate hand shaking.
I found out one of my mom's friends apparently think I'm an asshole for avoiding shaking their hand. Skip ahead a bit and I came across someone at work who wanted to shake hands, I did it, found out latter he was sick, then got the feeling I was coming down with something myself soon after.
I got over it quick enough, but it's a really shitty custom

Aside from spreading germs, you're simply dirtying people's hands. I mean if I'm about to eat and your asshole self wants to shake hands, that means what I gotta wait till you leave to go wash my hands and now eat cold food because you'd be offended if I didn't shake your hands, and more offended if I washed my hands right after shaking them? I've had this exact scenario happen a few times too.
Secondly, why would you assume someone wants to touch you in the first place? Some people don't like being touched, just leave them the fuck alone and don't guilt trip them into doing something
Then there's douchbags with something to prove who try to crush your hand. What the fuck's up with that? Just don't fucking touch me you cunt bitch whore fag dick shits. Is that so much to ask for?
>> No. 32304 [Edit]
I understand this one. Do you ever sit and watch other people eat anything with their hands? A lot of people just wipe their hands and leave the restaurant. I can't prove that they don't wash them soon after, but somehow I doubt it. They must walk around with their hands smelling like fried chicken, etc. all day and not be bothered in the slightest. So I understand not wanting to shake someone's hand.

I tried to exercise and it was completely pointless. I did it every other day for about 6 months, noticed no positive change whatsoever. I progressed very slowly with no benefits other than being able to perform the exercises themselves slightly better. I stopped because I was trying so hard yet my mother was calling me fat more and more. It's pointless. Two months ago I tried to start again but then I've suffered an unrelated wrist injury and I can't continue. It doesn't even heal, just hurts all the time. I'm so frustrated I can barely hold back from harming myself.

Probably don't need to say this, but it goes way beyond touhou, even if that's what most people are familiar with. The creative aspect of otaku culture isn't really present in the west because "otaku" is incorrectly tied together with anime, manga, etc.You wouldn't call someone who's obsessed with making model trains sets a train otaku and you wouldn't call someone who designs and prints 3-d models as a hobby a 3-d printer otaku. Maybe in Japan you would, but here you wouldn't. Over here, very, very few people attempt to create "doujins" and when they do, the result is very often a sub-par imitation dismissed by most people.
>> No. 32528 [Edit]

Because the culture is different. Many people who would have become doujin creators in the Japanese framework instead pursue the indie creator's path as Westerners.

The hypocritical and arbitrary distinction between weaboos and otaku which a lot of people have. I get the behavioral aspect and the tendency for weaboos to have very narrow taste in what's most popular, usually shounen and shoujo. What I don't get are these two things I see get brought up a lot:weaboos don't "respect" Japanese culture, weaboos don't feel more connected to their own culture. The whole respect thing is bullshit. It's not like our culture is respected in Japan. They constantly paraody medieval fantasy and the dumb, easily excitable foreigner is a common trope there. The notion of "respecting" other cultures only exists in the west. No one else cares, about others at least. It's a double standard.

With the second thing, what is my culture? What am I supposed to feel more attatched to? American culture? There's some good American literature; hell, there's even some good movies and a very select few good tv shows. If I had to pick between the pop/modern culture of America and Japan though, am I really expected to pick America? Really? If so, I'll gladly be a weaboo.

There's so many faggots who watched Cowboy Bebop or played final fantasy as a teenager and think that gives them license to look down on anyone "less normal" than them. They think even though they also liked "anime type stuff" they're better than those people.

>that shouldn't surprise anybody
What do you mean? There's lots of good British books. I don't like their tv much, but from what I've seen, it's better. Compare Gordon Ramsay's shows from Britain and the US.
>people who claim it is less political or whatever often just don't catch the subtext
That's the difference. Things are controlled by politics here. Even if that's the case there too, I personally find their "politics" to be less abrasive. Don't want to get into that though.
>done more efficiently over a smaller population and area with a better social system
So better. I know what the roots of anime and manga are, but that's superficial to me. At the end of the day, Japan produces Akira, Disney produces the little mermaid, which is a watered down version of the fairy tale. I prefer Akira, both aestetically(the actual movement style is different, disney makes everybody look like they're made of jelly) and narratively. Animation + everything else in that catergory is a niche, so it's not exactly "pop-culture", but you get the idea. I fully acknowledge that I don't like or watch J-dramas or whatever. I've seen some serious "adult-oriented" animation from America. I don't like how they look and they have a way smaller budget anyway, so they aren't significant.
>do you really think people who come from different lands isn't going to be found amusing?
Missing my point. If I ran a show and made a character named Mr.Gook with buck teeth and a goofy accent, do you think that would fly? You can't even wear a kimono without some people throwing a hissy fit. They don't care about making fun of Americans or using christian symbolism for cool factor, but "disrespecting" them is off-limits.

You’ve probably been to large regional cities, which are almost uniformly homogenized and bad, I would say Kansas and Massachusetts are very different in smaller towns and especially university towns.
>British books
I was referring to poor mass media as in yellow journalism that the UK is probably more infamous for than the US even though major new outlets run news stories like “Ubuntu operating system causes girl to drop out”.
I’ll concede about animation, especially Disney’s post corporate takeover stuff, although Akira is probably a poor comparison considering it’s only liked for the animation. The titular character does not even appear in the film! I will admit that due to the microscopic budgets of TV animation in America that it’s pretty poor (although once in a decade or so there’s a good TV animation like Over the Garden Wall or Archer), but the reason it’s underbudgeted is due to the west in general undervaluing the potential of animation and the only thing I’ve seen that can match the visual appeal are a handful of French series. I will die on the hill of early western animation that was made for theaters is timeless and still looks good today.
Yes, making fun in good faith and being outright mean for the purpose of being hurtful or getting laughs from actual bigoted people is different in my book. I’d also argue there are indeed people inspired by dharmic religions which are considered very Eastern simply because of their exoticism or because they’re “cool”. There’s also a lot of creators that take influence from Japanese stuff that just aren’t super obvious about it, like Genndy Tartakovsky. Also, everyone makes fun of everyone, but I think jokes about Asian peoples being less warmly received than, say, the French is due to trying to cultivate better race relations in general.

I’m not even saying it’s not understandable that you dislike it, I just find it comical you find a place with heavy American influences so much better than the US culturally. I will agree with you about how the preoccupation with politics and the resulting tribalism is annoying and representative of a bigger problem.

Drove through Georgia once. Fucking shacks lined up in a row next to a pond constituted a "neighborhood". Maybe I should visit Kansas.
Don't know why you're mentioning it.
>Akira is probably a poor comparison considering it’s only liked for the animation. The titular character does not even appear in the film!
What? The soundtrack? The action scenes? Even the plot was refreshingly original(for me) and there was enough social commentary to give the film some substance. Don't know about everybody else, but I loved it. Akira himself appears when he's summoned by the three children and in a flashback, so I don't know what the fuck you're talking about. Also, in terms of budget, release date, and recognition, Akira is a fine example.
>west in general undervaluing the potential of animation
A big part of this is economic. Animation will never flourish here because of how the economy works. Doujinshi will never floruish because of our copyright culture and a massive lack of talent. Nobody is cultivating their skills that way. Moving away from animation, Manga is more interesting as a whole than comics, which are dominated by supershit and never-ending story-lines for the same characters. Comics are dying anyway, partially because of politics. Lets's go further, VNs, we barely have any. Then you've got erotic material of all types, which nobody but a few politicians complain about there, but creates mass hysteria here. Looking at the big picture, the differences are pretty damn clear.
>Yes, making fun in good faith and being outright mean for the purpose of being hurtful or getting laughs from actual bigoted people is different in my book.
I don't have to look this up for you, it's readily available, gaijinsan with a blonde afro speaking in goofy, chiper engrish is pretty much no different from my Mr.Gook. Who said Mr.Gook was made out of malice? It's just good fun.
Really? We're on totally different wave lengths then. I'm confused by your presence on this site. "American influenced" is miles away from American. Panty and stocking is one of the most directly, untransformed, american "influenced" anime, and I didn't enjoy it.

Georgia is pretty much a shithole even by US standards, everything outside Atlanta or Athens is horrible.
I brought up journalism because it contributes to the incoherence you feel about culture and the outrage over fun.
There’s lots of jokes and caricatures about Asians, but in this day and age using a racial slur like that so freely under the guise of comedy is considered tasteless in almost any country that at least tries to be “PC”, hell even in Apartheid South Africa there was a group of people uncomfortable with overtly racist comedy.
Also, I will mention that at least from a technical standpoint, in the west 3DCG animation is far superior and can even be visually appealing although animation as a whole isn’t the west’s forte and they should stick to literature and film. I’ll also concede about western comics being dominated by capeshit although some early capeshit can be charming, but there’s some fun indie stuff out there like SCUD or Bone but they are rare and my collection of western comics is much smaller than my almost terabyte of manga. Even including Eurocomics.
I didn’t mean that in a belittling way, I’m just saying outside of nerd or “otaku” stuff it’s not that different with both being heavily sophomoric, referential, greedy/corporate and workaholic. I don’t even disagree with your points but you’re comparing a rather niche product with stuff made to try to reach the widest audience possible.
>> No. 32564 [Edit]
I will clarify that I said comical because I didn't want to come off as combative or adversarial. I agree with you on a lot of points but making fun of other peoples is just different in places racially homogeneous like Japan. America was never and the west in general hasn't been as a whole for a while, I think the reason that kind of humor is considered dated in this sphere is just out of simple courtesy who might be made uncomfortable although it's not like that kind of stuff has gone away completely, it just isn't as common in the mainstream.

The. West. Japan and others may put on pc airs to avoid conflict, but when they're not worried about that they couldn't care less. Oh, it's fine though, their culture is different, they're homogeneous. Can't blame them, but make sure to treat them in our "civilized" way. That's what my whole first post was about.
>it’s not that different
Maybe. That's why actually trying to "trade" your "culture"(still not convinced that's a thing here) for Japan's is moronic and misguided. However, if someone put a button in front of me and said "if you press this, America will become more Japan-like" I might press it.

I dislike how djent has seemingly taken over progressive metal. Even the trend of copying Dream Theater's horrid endless solos from post-Awake pale in comparison to the tedium and un-creativeness that is nearly every djent song. I like some djent albums, but the style doesn't have a lot of flexibility, so it's easy to beat the horse well into its decomposition. I was hoping there would be some decent experimentation, but I haven't seen much of that.

I didn't phrase nor articulate that well. I can enjoy long solos and solo trades, but only if said solos are interesting to me and feel like they serve a purpose. Sadly, most of DT's output after Awake isn't that. I don't know if it was Keven Moore's departure, but the era afterwards felt like the song structure suffered in favor of more technicality. I lov
