I'm about four days into a month long vacation right now. It's cold as fuck, and thus extremely uncomfortable, I'm bored beyond my mind and cannot life a finger of motivation to do anything other than stay at home in bed browsing imageboards and useless sites all day long. I feel depressed and I wouldn't mind not waking up tommorow, and I bet the rest of my vacations are going to be exactly how it has been so far.

An average day off. Slept in, woke up feeling okay, started feeling like crap in the afternoon, and now I've calmed down.

I need to stop stressing over "IRL" matters like my job situation so much,

Make sure you eat properly, or at least eat something. The thing I find with depression is that you can't be bothered getting out of bed to eat, then that causes you to have even less energy and feel even worse. I get headaches if I don't eat for a couple of days.

I drank a forty and a 32 ounce beer last night because I celebrated the fact that I don't owe anyone any money anymore.

A reason to celebrate, sure, but I don't want to drink alcohol anymore. I thought that I was getting better, but it turns out that relapses are common. I feel like a dumbass, even though it really could have been a lot worse.

Let's try this again!

I've recently started seeing a Psychologist, referred by a Psychiatrist I saw. The Psychologist is female, and from what I can tell she is not very good at her job. Or perhaps she is, as egotistical as this sounds (believe me, it's intended the opposite), simply not equipped to deal with a patient like me. This woman, a small town specialist, seems to be more used to dealing with 16 year old girls, fresh from a weekend hospital stay for signs of small cutting after being jilted by an ex-lover. Her mannerisms are patronizing, and she talks a lot. Ordinarily talking a lot would be ideal, but she wastes time. She seems to waffle on and on, to the point where I found myself fairly agitated during yesterday's session, finishing her drawn out explanations of simple exercises and ideas for her in rushed, irritated tones. She also forgot my name at the end of the session, her notekeeping was less than adequate (she found herself forgetting key events I'd made sure to highlight at her request during the previous appointment for future discussion) and she seemed to lack the appropriate agency with which to decisively correspond with my Psychiatrist regarding my treatment. She asked me at the end of the session what I wanted her to say to the Psychiatrist.

I could probably deal with all of this if it weren't for her awful sense of humour. She's like a spinster clown in a hospice. But getting in to see this woman was a months-long ordeal I'd rather not go through again. I'm just going to ride it out and hope I get prescribed Adderall or something.

I understand my ear pro better now why some people don't like it. Its not because its shit but rather the way it handles sounds. Instead of filtering out the loud sound removing it. Rather the microphone picks it up too and lets you hear it at a lower decibel which is still loud but not damaging.

I talked with my mother today, my brother has some (serious) problems with the degree he's doing (read: he's doing jackshit) and she's worried. She's has a lot of problems and this is the last one for her, she doesn't like her job any more but she doesn't want to quit because the plan was for her to leave it to my brother.

It made me remember all the time I wasted when I was doing my bachelor, the fact it took me 5 years instead of 3, and all the other related things. It feels horribly, what's worse is that I can't go back and fix it.
I told my mother if I can do something to help but she said no, and that I should go on with my own life. I'll hug her and be depressed all day.

the past 4 years I've shut my self off from the world in order to avoid what I'm experiencing right now. Haruhidamnit why now of all places. This was not supposed to happen this way. I should have done my share of the work, come back, act akward the entire time, sleep then leave the day after but no I just had to forget about acting akward and unsociable the entire day. Fuck now I got people interested in me in record time (<12 hours) and now my week is dedicated to being with them. Hell one of the girls even likes me to the point of sharing meals and walking together. I'm digging myself a normal person hole with an excavator and I can't get.out of it.

I have been playing riichi on Tenhou pretty much nonstop for three days now. I didn't knew a single thing about riichi back then, but now I've already memorized all the yakus and tiles and sequences of dora indicators. I've even won a game whilst knowing what I was doing. It's a very addicting game after a while.

I've been thinking about this lately, What do you guys think of a measurable intelligence such as IQ, or intelligence in general?

Personally, I think IQ is a very small indicator of how smart a person is, and a even smaller indicator of what a person is capable of, it angers me when some people believe they're superior to others just because "My IQ is at least 25% higher than yours". Sure we can tell if a person is smart or not if we get to know them well enough, but if we know a person that much then we probably would find some qualities enjoyable about him other than intelligence that would've made us want to know him and hang out with him so much.

Even if IQ is valid, I'd rather hang out with the nice guy with a IQ of sub 90 than the dickwad with an IQ of 140. Intellegence is all about how you use it, not how much you have, famous people like Shakespeare, Einstein, etc. never were popular because they were smart, but rather because they did/made/said things that changed the world as a result of how smart they were.

While it's not something to obsess on, I'd say it's a valid indicator overall.
The people who couldn't get past the stone age usually score 80 points or less while at the top you have places like Italy, Switzerland etc.

The test used was invented by europeans, but asians seem to be the best at it.

This is Flynn's test, it only takes into account the natives' IQ. ie, australian test was given to the abbos.
All the places in the 70IQ area in this map were stuck in living with mud houses and the like before the European came to give them civilization, or attempted to.
Is it really just because it wasn't made by their people that they scored so bad in an intelligence test?
And how could they hope to make a test of their own, if they couldn't even figure out the wheel and are still stuck in living in such an underdeveloped way?

Okay, so lets drop a bunch of Chinese people in Australia 40,000 years ago. You think they'd be able to build a better civilization?

They're completely different ethnic groups/lineages. Think Papua New Guineans vs Indonesians, Taiwanese aborigines vs Taiwanese or Ainu vs Japanese. Maybe they came from Asia but they're not asian in the sense that they're related to the main ethnicities living in east asia right now.
>> No. 27339 [Edit]
>>27338
But those people all came from the same place originally; we are all the same species. The difference between groups is due to where they ended up. People on mainland Asia took a different route because they had many different people to trade with, animals/plants to domesticate, fertile land that allowed agriculture to develop and cities to be built.

Imagine aboriginal people meeting Europeans for the first time and administering an intelligence test based on their own culture and the challenges of their geography. They might conclude that Europeans are dumb because they don't know how to find water in the desert or build a canoe.

I had an IQ test recently, something about determining if I had the autism or some such nonsense. It didn't seem like it had any sort of memory testing on it. As such, I did fine.

I looked at my data usage, only to find that apparently, my phone visited the future briefly. What is even going on? There are several things that annoy me about this phone (Galaxy S3), and this is only the most recent thing. Another is that for some reason, when playing music via Bluetooth, it doesn't always send the song metadata or something, although that might be a problem with the receiver. When using the newest version of Spotify, Bluetooth crashes between every song, so I had to download an older version from not the play store (as far as I can tell, you can't download old versions from there), so I hope that that program isn't doing bad things. The default browser is shit; for some reason sites are occasionally convinced that I have JavaScript disabled.

This might be an issue with the carrier, but one time a text message wouldn't download until I restarted the phone. Another time, I tried to make a call and it said something like "not registered on network," and I had to restart.

Also, the home button feels a little recessed, I think a piece of sand got in there or something, and I find out that the only way to remove the button to clean it is to remove the entire screen, held into place with adhesive fashioned from the jizz of ten thousand nerds, and essentially requires destroying the screen to remove it. I guess making one of the few mechanical parts of your phone goddamn impossible to clean is a good idea?

Also, hidden locations that do specific things are pretty frequent, it's like UI designers actively loathe the user. Surprise! Touching here while a video is playing changes the volume. No, you can't delete part of your data usage history. No, the default keyboard doesn't have arrow keys, if you want to edit something, you'll slide your grubby fingers all over the text trying to get it into place.

This is my first smart phone, are they all this much of a mess?

Walking home from buying some fast-food cause I can't cook, I seen this guy walk out of his car to use an ATM. Leaving both the keys in and the door open, as I was walking by someone cut me off, jumped in the guy's car and drove off. Almost hitting me.

I've started looking at a bunch of flash videos because I wanted to catch up on whatever I've missed out during the last 6 months to a year.

I've found a few interesting things, I found out that Zone is still making videos, and I found a flash where some people were making Japanese girls say inappropriate things in English.

I guess it was okay and stuff. The experience is kind of reminding me that I do need to wander around the internet a bit more often to find some interesting things since I've been very detached from everything as of late.

I did find this incredible flash just now, however. I love it. I know that people here don't like Kancolle, so I'll put this old Ronald flash that I was reminded of during my time awake during these last hours.

I've started studying all the basics of mathematics again, all the way from pre-algebra to third year of highschool mathematics, so that I can study university level calculus to understand some things of my field of study.

Different person here, but I need to clear out the dust from the heatsink on my laptop. Ive been blasting compressed air through it, but its starting to not work in terms of getting the dust out.

The problem is that its an HP laptop and they design the heatsink to be behind everything else, so you have to take apart the whole laptop to get to it. I'm not very experienced at it and the few times I opened a laptop I ended up breaking it so I'm scared to attempt the thing.

Though when I did get the chance to talk to her I tried to avoid topic of modeling since everybody and their mother probably has talk to her about it. She said hi Im (asian name) nice to meet you anon. Then she said shes finished with modeling and is now focusing on college. Also about being settled in at new York.

My grandfather died at the age of 92 today.

After doing his morning exercises, he went inside, had my grandmother make him his Sunday milkshake, and while he was drinking it he just closed his eyes and stopped living.

While most of my family is heavily upset, I think that was quite the positive note to end one's life. I don't feel like I missed anything vital, since I've heard all of his stories multiple times already, and I spent plenty of time with him in the last few years.

However, my Grandma, who is going through the early stages of dementia, is having a hell of a time, and I can only feel it will get worse for her.

Dishonest? That's exactly what every company/business ever has done since forever. If you ever bought something from a local store it's been marked up from it's original value to make that store a profit. The only exception being items sold at low costs to draw in customers in hopes they buy the other more expensive stuff too. The real question there is if it will make money like you said. It's true weeaboos will willingly overpay for Japanese garbage (it's the principle j-list is built on) but you have to make sure that you can sell the stuff for a high enough mark up to make up for amazon/ebay fees on top of ebay fees and payment processing fees. Then you have to be mindful of competition selling the same items. If you can sell them items at a high enough price to clear the fees but low enough to beat out the other guys then you're good to go.

Kanji is in my opinion one of the most interesting aspects. It isn't really as hard as it may seem, they do make sense and there's a lot of shit repeating, so after a little bit of time, it'll be much easier to learn new characters.

Also with programs like rikai, Kanjitomo, ITH etc. it takes almost no effort to look up characters, I really don't want to imagine what a pain in the ass Chinese and Japanese learning must have been.
Just don't let yourself get overwhelmed, start with some interesting furigana stuff if you haven't already and learn the characters on the go.

Finally finished a component of my potential future alternative to MAL for seiyuu.
This one allows to search for anime based on a list of voice actors starring in it. For when you only care about 2.5D.

Voice acting is the only thing that makes characters alive though.

Anyway, what's that about Nana in Cross Ange? Is the character lewd or something?
I just found out it has all the stars in it, even Chihara Minori in addition to the three in the screenshot. Although experience tells me sometimes all stars cast is used to balance out really bad anime and vice-versa (promising titles voiced by rookies).

My grandpa died. I don't really care, in 25 years of my life I don't think I've seen him more than 30 times, he could have not existed at all and nothing would have changed.
What's surprising for me is how bad my mother took it, she always said she hated him and couldn't wait for him to die.
>> No. 27866 [Edit]

>she always hated him
Why though? Why did she hate him? I think it's worth noting that love and hate are two sides of the same coin.
It could be however, much like the cries of the teenage girls over the death of the introverted, quiet, nerdy loser who literally nobody gave any fucks about when he was alive, that she's simply crying in response to a reminder of her own mortality. All of the bonds she's formed in life, everything she's hated and everything she's loved, it will all die by the hands of time and now, once again, she's not allowed to look away from it.

He was a scary man with serious anger issues, bad enough that my mother picked a university far away from him and never came back, seeing him only on occasions like Christmas.

Anyway, so I'm downloading 50 GBs worth of Queen's Blade. I can't really do much but wait for it to finish, even though it is at 88% complete as of right now.

Here's a bit of coincidental weirdness that actually occurred a few minutes ago: I was playing the Metal Slug mobile game and got an ad for a game called Clash of Cuties. I saw big tits and clicked on it. I was surprised, but the first thing that I saw when I looked at the pictures were the fact that the characters are pretty much Queen's Blade characters, just with different hair colour or clothes. However, in the screenshots of the actual gameplay has them wearing the clothes they wear in the series.

At least the game isn't wrong about them being QTs.

I ate some sushi that I bought from the supermarket and it made me sick. I had to go home from work at lunch. I tried to sleep it off, but became overcome with the urge to vomit and ran to the bathroom. I didn't make it to the toilet, however, and first vomited all over my hands and arms in an attempt to catch it and not get it on the carpet. Then, I almost made it to the toilet but vomited all over the floor in front of it and in a pile of dirty clothes. Then I knelt in my vomit and threw up all over the toilet seat and in the toilet for a while. I was pretty gross so i took a shower, but now I feel feverish and too sick to clean up the mess. I live alone so if I die they'll only know when they come to evict me.

There are two things that make people stop thinking, those are sex and children. Combining them creates a worse effect.

But loli or whatever name you want to call it is porn of drawn children (see the connection?). And who likes masturbating to children? That's right, pedophiles. And people hate pedophiles, so they hate what they masturbate to. All people think is that they are masturbating to drawn little kids, it doesn't matter if you like real kids or not, it's assumed you do, which is probably right in most cases.

Loli is illegal in a lot of countries, and people make moral judgements based on there laws. If they started banning movies just for violence, people would agree with the decision and assume 'it must be so bad they had to ban it'. It's also funny that the judgement of 'drawn child pornography' or whatever, is characters under the age of 18, so that is not just loli. It also include girls that are older high school students.

Anyway, this topic is incredibly old, and nothing can be said that hasn't been said before. I wish kids got smarter with time so they don't repeat the same shit again and again. Most things can be figured out with a little thought. Yes, the answer is usually 'people are irrational', but you don't have to run away and get people to agree with you. Or you can think, 'lol their so dumb, im right' and laugh it off.

Finally finishing my thesis and getting my degree, apply for a master (I'm already on it) and get a scholarship while on it. That should give some money and options for at least a few more years.

My mother is one step away from getting cancer. My aunt isn't very good either. There's no way I could survive without them the way I'm now. Years ago I thought I'd just kill myself after they die; but now I don't think I want to... and that's enough. For as long and deep as you look for it, there's no real good reason for living, none at all, at any level; so, I finally understood that it's a pure act of the will, a choice, and that's what constitutes its ethical value. Now I believe it's ok to fight for living. Anno was right.

I've been playing an MMO lately. I joined a guild when I got an invitation out of nowhere. It was fun to watch these people talk for a few days until one of them tried talking to me. They offered me help in advancing my character to the next job. They took 10 min or so to gather me items, but then told me to do the rest on my own. I gathered the rest of the items over the next 3 days despite not really wanting to job advance my character to begin with. After I finished gathering all the materials I told the person who helped me that I was going to level up a different character instead, as I would rather have used the materials on a different character. They started yelling at me "after i spent all this time helping you!! I even bought some of the items!!"... fun ruined instantly. I uninstalled the game.

I've had a bad week. First my laptop audio went bad so I decided to assemble a computer and install debian. I'm not into computers so it's not really enjoyable. It's just stressful. But the story isn't over. There was no audio in debian. I spent two days trying to fix it while learning how to use linux shell. I have no fucking idea. I've given up. I'm going to give my entire computer to my father's acquittance and ask him to fix it (and tell me what he did).

Okay, I did it. It's a real basic solution, I think. I think my motherboard was too modern. I had to update the kernels. But I fucked up my Debian install so much I tried mint to see if audio would work. It didn't. But it showed it was a common problem in both (also, I noticed that ubuntu had more help for more basic things). While I was searching I found out that some audio problems could be solved by updating the kernels to 4.2. And I found out that mint has a GUI to update kernels with. So it was easy to do.

I'm just going stick with mint for the while. It has the image of a baby os but I think that's fine for me, right now.

It took two and a half days. But it works.

I stayed up until 4 in the morning because I wanted to be polite with my neighbor downstairs and his friend. His apartment was a mess, but he seemed to have a lot of high-tech stuff. I tried to show them vaporwave, but by the second song (Purity Boys by Blank Banshee) they said that they didn't like it; that it was "too sad". They then showed me videos of punk rock; the music videos were awesome and had a lot of symbolism, but I think that it went over their heads and they just danced to the lyrics. I don't dislike punk rock, but they all sound the same. Same thing with Neutral Milk Hotel.

His friend unironically showed me a video of Justin Bieber and said that he was awesome. And this is a guy around my age (early 30s). Admittedly, Bieber is a talented vocalist, but I would never willingly listen to him.

Just...wow. Just all the bling and the scantly clad women and the partying in those videos. People actually take that seriously; they genuinely feel that pop music is real life. Prolefeed, more or less.

I only got up four and a half hours ago, but I feel like I've been up all day. It is nuts. I don't regret hanging out with that guy for an hour or two (he seems nice), but it just reinforces how weird I am, I guess. At least I can pretend to be interested in other people's shit.

The few characters in the novel serve to provide opportunities for better reading into the protagonist's state of mind and don't get too much characterization themselves.
>where does he get the money for the drugs?
His parents send him a progressively diminishing fund every now and then which he sometimes uses on "legal" drugs.

Isn't it by definition child porn? Not criticizing loli or lolicon or anything like that, but it depicts children (assuming they don't bypass that with the infamous "I'm X years old but look like I'm 12!" cliche) having sex. Just because it's drawn doesn't really make it any different.

Although I have a bit of a bias because in my country Loli is treated like real life CP and you can get arrested for it.

You know, i was never into loli but i've always found SD characters cute since i was a kid, i think this was my slippery slope to get somewhat into it.
Lately i'm kinda seeing the appeal of lolis, i think it's all about innocence and pureness. Most doujins/mangas like comic LO, involve bro/sis or people really closely related and most of it is consensual. So i can see why it would be popular, since things like innocence and love in real life are extinct, only rational for people to migrate to fiction.
However, i see why lolicon is bad and dangerous, for the old otaku it may not make sense but for the "new" otaku, it does.

Some "otakus" are unable to distinguish between fiction and reality, some even plaster fiction INTO reality. This is where the danger lies in and why i can see a plausible explanation as to why loli was banned in some places.
One day he'll fap to LO and the other he's on known pedo hideouts, unable to tell the difference between fiction and reality, always wanting more to satisfy twisted desires.
Fapping to a fictional story has no implications, it's all art, drawings, whatever you may want to call it. However, fapping to CP is another story, the poor kid you see is already broken for life and you're supporting the monsters who did this to him/her. You're basically telling him to continue destroying other kids minds and lives. May you rot in prison then.

If i had a 3DPD and she confessed to me she was a shotacon/lolicon i would be fine with it, but only if she was an otaku like me.
Last thing i fapped involving a loli was "Before the festival" and i felt heart-warmed by it at the end, this is how loli doujins should be, not some disgusting works i've seen around where they get raped by some creepy guy. I don't know you but even if it's fiction it doesn't sound right to me to fap to the suffering of others. If it's a somewhat cute tale with a happy ending it's alright but things like rape involving lolis or NTR i just can't. Even if it's fiction, i need to draw a line for my personality, and i don't support this.

Reading and posting on 4chan these days is such an alien experience. It doesn't even feel like it did in 2012. I used to complain years ago that all the unique board cultures had become watered down to some flavor of /b/-lite, but there aren't even distinct board cultures at this point. There is absolutely no sense of community, and all reference points to "old 4chan", even 4chan of 2011, have been severed. Sometimes I wonder if most of the people posting there are even over 18; There aren't even whiny, overdone meta posts like there were in the past. The posts there read like some redditors who read /r/4chan for a while and decided they understood what made the site great was greentext and reaction images, with no appreciation for some of the actually cool history or lurking. I don't want to play up the whole 'whiny oldfag' schtick because I don't think there's any glory in staying on an imageboard for ages, but I feel like I honestly just overstayed my welcome. I wish this stuff didn't matter to me as much as it does, but I guess that's what I get for not having friends for years.

What languages are you wanting to teach?

>>28348

Any one, I imagine someone wanting to learn has a target language they want to use. Maybe Lua if they don't have any in mind? It's a great language and used a ton as an extension language in video games. But it also might be a bad starting point for how lax and error-tolerant it is. I could teach C# since it's strongly typed and the littlest error is picked up by the compiler. But it's also really verbose and I don't want to scare people with it's syntax. I'd definitely go with C# if it weren't for the syntax, but then again it was my first language so maybe I'm just underestimating people.

There are better languages to teach, of course, but you gotta start out with a language that already had a billion questions about it asked on stackoverflow so you can easily troubleshoot instead of getting hopelessly stuck and giving up.

A month has passed (more or less). I've been feeling a constant un-ease in the back of my mind due to lack of employment and a fear for the far off future (I could in theory live off of my parents for the next 20 years until they die). I've been slowly getting better at beating back the negativity though. I've got my job application in at a handful of places but nothing has really came forth.

My parents are pushing for me to apply for ANYWHERE, even reatail or fastfood just so I have something, and that "I can't sit around all day doing nothing." I don't disagree, but physically I am very weak, and I worked retail for almost a year and it damn near killed my feet.

Aside from unemployment blues and some parental pressure, things aren't bad. My home situation has usually been good.

wow, no wonder I don't like going outside during the day. Direct sunlight makes me physically sick. Looking back, it always did that, but it was very subtle and I just thought it was car sickness. But it's gotten worse, and today I tested it by blindfolding myself in the sun. I just sat out there for five minutes and I lost my appetite and had to run the areas of my body that got the most sunlight under cool water.
I'd almost be proud of that from a hikki standpoint if I wasn't afraid that I might have SLE.
But if I don't then that's pretty cool that I'm literally intolerant to the sun. I'm like a hikki legend.

That's the opposite of the experience I had with MMORPG guilds.

I have a similar experience with Mandarin. I can somewhat understand what people are saying if they come from Manchuria, but my own "accent" can be indecipherable, since I stumble on the tones.

If someone is speaking Japanese, I can usually pick up on what they are talking about even better than with Mandarin, but since I have little experience forming sentences, yet alone talking, I usually keep quiet.

Even with knowing "Erhua" Mandarin and Japanese, it still more often than not that I encounter people speaking something indecipherable, which could be anything from Korean to Cantonese. I simply can't parse it.

I learned English and Japanese so I could read and listen to media in those languages, not so I could talk to people. When I'm not at work, I hardly even talk to people in my native German.
I did eventually end up speaking both languages fluently, and at work I've become the guy who handles Japanese and Anglophone customers when they call, which makes the job a bit more interesting. But for years I was perfectly content with just playing my weeaboo video games and browsing my American nazi websites without ever talking to anyone in those languages IRL.

How? "End up" sounds like you've learned it passively without much effort, you said years but how many did it take you?

>How?
English: I was taught some English in school, stuff like "I am from Germany," "the classroom was noisy," etc. but not enough to hold a conversation or read a book.
I became fluent mostly by reading playing text-heavy video games (i.e. WRPGs), as well as reading lots of linux man pages and other tech-related stuff. I still spoke with a very thick German accent at the time, but that problem resolved itself when I marathoned a bunch of American TV shows.

Japanese: Mostly ゲーム and 少年漫画, combined with heavy use of a 国語辞典 and a willingness to study a few thousand 漢字.

>"End up" sounds like you've learned it passively without much effort
Well, how many people do you know who learned their native language by doing lots of fill-in-the-blank worksheets when they were toddlers?

>you said years but how many did it take you?
Being addicted to Morrowind for a year is what got me from shit-tier English to fluency.
As for Japanese, after 6 months of hardcore immersion I was able to read something like Death Note and understand most of it, after a year I was able to watch your average shounen or moe anime (not so much stuff like GitS SAC or Tatami Galaxy) and understand basically every word of it, and after about 1,5 years I was happily discussing the latest weeaboo shit on 2ch.
I forgot much/most of my Japanese due to losing interest in anything Japanese for several years, but lately I've been getting into it again.

>I'm wondering if I should start learning actively how to form sentences and express myself in Japanese
In my experience, forcing yourself to talk/write in the language you're learning mainly makes you internalize the mistakes you make. My English was actually a lot better and more natural-sounding before I started posting on message boards.
Not to say you shouldn't express yourself at all, but let it flow naturally, and always make sure you get a lot more input than you produce output. You wouldn't believe how many fucking Turks I have to talk to who were born in Germany but can barely communicate with me because they spend all their time watching Turkish TV channels and only bother with German when they have to get important stuff done, like filling out welfare applications.

Studying grammar rules is useful for refining your knowledge of the language, but not so much for learning it from scratch.

Talking to yourself in the language helps with mastering pronunciation if you do it right, but it's a habit that, once learned, is hard to get rid of again. Occasionally I was given some pretty weird looks when I was riding the bus and mumbling incoherent sentence fragments in four different languages.

I saw the Angry Birds movie today. Decent kids movie with good production values regarding animation, voice acting etc.

It's also full of racism and anti-immigration propaganda, just like I had expected hoped.

Can recommend. Also play the game if you haven't yet, it's pretty fun. I recommend either the first installment or the Space and Star Wars editions.

Sorry for the late reply, didn't realize that you've posted. Thank you for the answers.

>Well, how many people do you know who learned their native language by doing lots of fill-in-the-blank worksheets when they were toddlers?
True.

>and after about 1,5 years I was happily discussing the latest weeaboo shit on 2ch.
That is really impressive. I've started learning about 2 years ago and can understand most games/shows without problems but I've never bothered with creating sentences myself and I'm sure that I'm shit at it except maybe basic stuff.

>In my experience, forcing yourself to talk/write in the language you're learning mainly makes you internalize the mistakes you make. My English was actually a lot better and more natural-sounding before I started posting on message boards.
Makes sense. I think TV and games also did much more for my English than the years in school despite having a pretty good teacher/education in my opinion but I also think that my English conversation skills would still be a lot worse if it weren't for message boards.

>Not to say you shouldn't express yourself at all, but let it flow naturally, and always make sure you get a lot more input than you produce output.
I don't worry about the last one, I'm convinced that I will always have more input than output.

>You wouldn't believe how many fucking Turks I have to talk to
I do.

>Talking to yourself in the language helps with mastering pronunciation if you do it right, but it's a habit that, once learned, is hard to get rid of again.
Thanks, I'll try that. Don't really care about it becoming a habit. I think I'll also start browsing 2ch and Futaba regularly.

Every time I play Artificial Academy, it invariably turns into beta Harem MC simulator.
One generic male PC and a class of cute incredibly attractive girls who all unavoidably end up orbiting around said pc but for some reason when the possibility of lewd things finally comes up I always feel oddly awkward/guilty/unready/beta and avoid it, despite it being the sole reason I'm playing in the first place.

I tried cutting myself a few days ago while I ate breakfast. It was the first time in years I've done it, I used the tip of a filet knife to do it, just the palms of my hands. It hurt and I was too weak to even properly cut through the skin so it ended up being simple scratches. I'm pretty disappointed in myself that I wasn't strong enough and I was told not to do it since it's a slippery slope. I think I know what they mean, I want to do it again today but I'm trying not to. It's another one of those days when I just feel horrible and I'm thinking about suicide. I hope that I can will myself to keep cutting until I can start using razors, the last time I used one I remember it hurting really bad but it's a lot easier to use than a kitchen knife. Hopefully some day I can move on to cuts on the wrists. It's pathetic that cutting is one of the few things I actually enjoy, it's probably why making friends is so difficult for me.

I miss the rush I would get.

So I decided to try one of the new pokemon games and saw that there was an option to keep the text in Japanese. I had heard that the text was kept simple since its a game for kids and thought that I could probably learn from it since I know Hiragana and Katakana, and I'm having a blast reading through it and getting a bit of practice in case I've forgotten any. I am seeing a few words that I recognise so I can get a rough idea of what I'm being told a decent amount of the time.

I miss WoW so much. I can't to afford to play it these days, but every now and then Blizz emails me one of those free 7 day offers and I give it another shot. I always end up hating what the game has become and wishing all the more to play it again as it once was. 2007-2009 was by far the best time of my life and back then I spent just about every waking hour playing WoW. It feels sort of silly to miss a video game so badly and to value time spent playing it so highly but it made me genuinely happy.

I got the body pillow I ordered in the mail recently and it feels soft and kind of comfy, not perfect but it will do. It makes me sad sometimes that I'm wrapping my arms and legs around a pillow instead of a person on many nights. Sometimes I think that if I did that with a person they would think I'm feeling frisky when I'm not or that I'm clingy and they would get angry/scared/suspicious/etc. so it doesn't always feel so bad.

I recently had to start working which has been fine so far. People leave me alone after the initial trying to be friendly phase. The only problem is sleep, really.

How? There's so much I want to play/watch/read. On imageboards I always hear of new, interesting stuff most of which part of a bigger series, that I generally prefer to get into by release order, so I already have a small backlog for a specific title I want to get into because I need to get to know all the ones before it.

Not Seagate, but fortunately you have that covered. HGST/Hitachi drives are a bit more expensive than other makers' but the security is worth it. For some of us a hard drive failure is not much better than terminal cancer. I had a Seagate die on me once; never again.

If there is one thing you should not try to spare on it's health. And your PCs health is probably very important to you so don't try to save 20 bucks and put yourself in risk. I've done that mistake before.

Thanks. I really appreciated reading that. Things have been steadily improving. This week was weird, because I worked Sunday Monday, off Tues Wed, worked yesterday Thursday, and was supposed to work today, but was told I could stay home due to overstaffing. Now I work tomorrow Saturday at a super weird 8 AM - 4 PM shift (our store opens at 10), but I'm off Sunday, work M-F, off next week's Saturday.

Hoping I have the 14th and/or 15th off as well. Things are improving though. I'm not working anymore 10-hour shifts at least (yet). Basically just gonna tolerate this for as long as possible, until something less shitty comes along or I snap again and quit.

I know what you mean about Seagate being trash. I had one die on me a long while back and erasing so much that I had saved over such a long time. Thanks for the warning, and as for the being cheap thing, I've learned a long while ago that being cheap has its drawbacks.

Always several-places cloud-back up your non-downloadable files like music, docs and so on... Anime, series, movies, games, they can all be downloaded again.

Thank you. I might just need that luck in hoping that the drive I get isn't defective in some way.

I did end up getting that one. Although, I do have a WD Passport and a WD Elements, and they both have been working well for the years that I've had them. WD is good, but I'm out of the loop and wanted input in case they've suddenly lost their touch or something.

>>29305
That sounds like a decent alternative. However, I rather handle my own files and keep them close to me so that I can access them whenever I please and not have them disappear randomly because it happens to be copyrighted material or some such. Also, the hentai. I want my lewd drawings to be safe with my music and anime.

Thank you all every much for helping me out with this! I like it when I can get some input from you guys on this board, just like when I asked about the headphones a few years back a couple of times,along with maybe a few other things I can't remember too well. I'm gonna ask about some new headphones in a month or two when I get more NEETbux to spend.

It's all luck. I bought a WD elements six years ago and it failed in a month.

The only problem with local backups is that they are still vulnerable to theft and other physical threats. I run the same risks.

I've been a NEET on and off (mostly on) since 2009, courtesy of German taxpayers. They're onto me though, since the benefits of having a kind puppyface, and a gentle, polite, harmless demeanour can only take me so far regarding leniency... and sooner (1-4 months) or later (12-18 months) I will have to find a job.

If I could ride this train forever at no additional reduction of dignity, I'd do it. But there are limits I won't cross for it (e.g. pretending to be legally insane, with all the trouble of faking symptoms).

Wish I could offer some advice but I'm not sure how NEET-bux work in Germany. I've considered filing for partial disability myself (I live in the US) due to my fucked up feet, but I would probably have to jump through hoops and hurdles, and still get declined anyway. They would probably say "Oh well you can work a desk or office job" even though there's very very few of those hiring in my area.

I guess maybe it's worth a shot sometime. I'd probably have to get some sort of doctor proof though, and I don't know how expensive that would be, unless they just decline me outright.

Either way, good luck man. If you end up finding work, hope you can mentally and physically handle it.

As someone who's studied a LOT about Buddhism -- don't believe the lore, it's just creepypasta. The traditional "tulpa" is just a simple image you focus on as your mind enters a light form of trance to deepen it. A tulpa is just an imaginary friend, nothing more, nothing less.

I woke up and went to the park to go for a walk thinking that someone might talk to me, but no one did. Then I went to the taco shop and got a breakfast burrito and just watched people order their food for a while. After that I went home and sat on the couch.

I decided to go to the library that I've never been to, but when I got there I didn't like the way it was layed out, because everyone could see what everyone else was doing, and I felt exposed like I didn't know what I was doing and everyone belonged except for me. I pretended to look at a book for a minute and just left, and sat in my car in the parking lot with the door open for a while.

Then I went to the other library that I know, but there were teenagers around the manga section, so I walked past it and pretended that I wasn't there for that, even though deep down I just wanted to meet someone to talk to about anime or something. Then I just left.

When I got back to my car the thought of going home made me sick, so i just started walking around town and left my car at the library. I walked several blocks one way, then crossed the street and walked back up the other side, then I decided to go a street over and walk back down, then come back up on the same street that I set down in the first place. Then I went home and sat on the couch for a while.

I went to the gym and messed around on some cardio machine for about 20 minutes and some girl looked at me and I felt pathetically like I wanted to talk to her, but then I just left because it was awkward.

Then I made dinner for myself and watched a little anime and went to bed after a glass of wine. I woke up at 2:00AM and started crying. I can't go back to sleep.

Reporting in. Applied for a slightly better job where I would be working the front desk at a loan company. Answer the phone, take payments, that sort of thing. The pay is the same as my current job $9 an hour, but the hours are consistent 8:30 - 5:30, M-F, with actual benefits. The only downside is the commute is about 30-40 minutes one way but honestly if it means a stable schedule, I'll deal with it.

I have a solid shot at it because the loan company does business with my current company so I have some familiarity with their processes already.

Sorry for the really late (and proper) response, but I just remembered this post and a solution for it! What about in-ear headphones? There are some that are shitty, but there are a few comfortable ones that might or might not slip out of your ears by themselves.

Well, since posting I thought I'd try out headphones again. The two pairs of headphones I owned still hurt after an hour, but I bought another pair (HD 280 Pro) and they are not so bad. Slightly uncomfortable after several hours, but a lot better than my others. I also starting resting my glasses on top of the headphone padding. It's at a weird angle but it works.

I have tried in-ear headphones years ago but stuffing things in my ear feels weird. They were skull-something, a crappy maker anyway.

But thanks for your concern. Buying headphones for comfort is difficult, because even if you go to a store to try them out, you can't really tell what something will feel like after several hours. It's like buying a bed, or even a pillow.

I actually might get a promotion (well, more of a side-grade really) to working inventory at my current store. There's a big project that's currently on-going and I've been helping with it a lot, and they are considering hiring another inventory guy. The team leader is really pushing for me to get hired, so it's a strong possibility.

Not sure what the exact pay or benefits would be, but I would have a stable M-F 8-5 or 9-6 schedule. So that, combined with the loan place, I've got some options.

I just realized the text didn't post. What I meant to say is I have a job interview in a few days and I have mixed feelings about leaving NEETdom. Well I had the interview and I got through to the next stage of the selection process but I'm still nervous about leaving my comfy neet life behind. I really like watching anime and playing vidya all day without having to worry about anything else and even though I need the money I'm not sure if that will be enough to get me through each day. Any tips for surviving boring office jobs?

The first few weeks might be stressful adjusting, but focus on getting your shit done. Ask questions if you don't understand something, but also don't stick your neck out too far. If you've got nothing to do, look busy. People will be easy on you for the first few weeks unless you burn the building down or lose a million dollars or something. Wouldn't be a bad idea to keep your phone handy too if you get bored.

Trust me, I know the feeling, but unless you're on permanent autismbux, NEETdom can be hard to sustain. Leaving the comfyness of no responsibilities sucks, but if you get your shit done at a job, you can go home and at least not think about it for the evening. I find that it's important to not think about work when you are at home. Try to avoid dreading the next morning. It's a problem I'm only now starting to get over.

It's fairly common, there are so many Korean/Chinese immigrants compared to Japanese and they know Japanese food makes the big bucks.

You'd have to ask to see him. Then I guess try talk to him in Japanese if you're not perceptive to the differences of Asian looks.
Maybe check the name.

>What if the owner isn't but the chef / cook is?
That would be a sight to behold given the majority of Chinese and Koreans hate the Japanese with fervour.

What does that even mean? You stream yourself 24/7 or something?
>> No. 29525 [Edit]
>>29516
Oh, no. I'm not even sure if I'd be able to do the streaming thing and do it consistently enough to build a fanbase that would want to watch me play video games. What I meant by that is that I spend every day watching streams. I mean, with me being NEET, I could stream for hours every day if I felt like it and play video games all day everyday like I already do. I could probably do it if I had the proper equipment to stream gameplay from my devices.

I pretty much just go there to watch games that interest me and spam cute emotes of cute 2D girls that are available on a third party addon because they're free.
>> No. 29526 [Edit]
>>29525
Which games do you search streams for?
>> No. 29527 [Edit]
>>29526
Well, I don't really search for the games themselves as I'm willing to see anything new and interesting. Then again, I do for some reason watch the Food and Bob Ross streams way more than I should. I also sometimes go into the creative section and watch people draw stuff or make something interesting, or play an instrument. However, I do follow a few people that are entertaining to watch like Vinesauce and Cirno_tv, with the former being more of a normie jabroni while the latter feels like he wouldn't be too much of a stranger on this site, even if I have noticed some normie tendencies.

Being in twitch chat is an interesting experience as well. If the right people and content are there, it just becomes really fun, especially if you're knowledgeable about what is being played. Also, depending on who you're watching, you can use the BTTV/FrankerZ emotes to spam cute 2D girl emotes, even if they won't be seen all the time because of how it works, but people should still be able to know, if they know, that phrases like WanWan is the dancing Momiji .gif.

Very interesting post to read at this point. I was just going through some 4chan archives to breathe in the older days for a bit. I'm a huge sucker for shit like that. Things seem to have become very self-conscious now, if that makes sense. I'm sure it happens anywhere and anytime, but communities seem to be building up, transforming and then disappearing faster and faster. It's not limited to just channel 4 or imageboards as a whole.

A lot of places I took for 'eternal' went away anyway, because naturally things happen and then they change. Honestly, I miss most of that stuff. It's not even my interest in japanese media that's still alive. Not at all, to be very honest. It's the memories of those ambivalent late-night anime marathons with a mind right in between exhausting depression and an unmatched kind of warmth and then the web addresses that lead to places that hit the sweet spot between normie and tryhard sekrit club where of course things weren't perfect, not even in retrospect, but they carried a homely vibe that's undeniable, at least from my perspective. I think most people visited more than just one site, and more than just one IRC channel and so on. Which one felt the most 'home', differs from person to person.

This is one of those places, but it's also part of a smaller group, a piece of internet that time seems to have overlooked a little, so far. From my experience those are rare. Things change constantly but even after a few years this place boils down to more or less the same and I'm glad about that. Especially since I remember that I could check out the front page once every 3 days and see no more than roughly 2 new posts. It seems more active now with the homepage feed full of posts from the anime board, once again, I'm glad. Certain others weren't so lucky. Even if they're still around activity completely dried up. The sites are floating around cyberspace like abandoned stations. IRC channels that are essentially idle 24/7 that make you remember your first day where you could barely keep up with all the new names and stuff to talk about. Where is everyone ?

Could a large part of the chat be looking at the screen at the same time, every now and then, wondering why the rest doesn't talk anymore like they used to? That'd be delusional at most... Right?

Life seems to have started moving much faster as well. Leaving details in the middle, I suppose it's true to an extent that going along with everyday-life things can freshen a person up. It's not the end of the world like some say, nor paradise like some others say. High walls turn out to be curbs at most and old fears fade after trying something new. That said, it gets boring quickly. I consider it getting out of a shell of some sort: When you get out and see the big bad world was just a misinterpretation of reality. I felt very strong but it did draw my attention to something that suddenly went missing. Despite having felt very miserable back in the day, there are certain qualities to proper imageboard culture (is that an appropriate term? at least it'll do for now) that real life simply cannot compete with.

How does all this even connect? I suspect that there's some digital time-space compression going on, where real-life floods all but the furthest corners of the internet, turning parts into a mere extension of reality such as social media sites, rather than a self-contained digital place. Come on, how hard is it to find a few imageboards ? Once again, stuff like that always happened but I feel like the numbers were much different. Combining this with the natural flow of 'people and places come and go', I think I can put a finger on why I sometimes wonder, in spite of this website and others alike; Where is everyone ? Maybe the only right answer is realizing they are all still there, in what one may know as '97 which is 2006 for someone else, and 2010 for yet another person. Some things have always happened, some things are unique to just this time around. It's safe to say that it's a mix of both for us. I'll be sticking around here once again.

Where is everyone ? I need a drink.

It used to be that you could visit a unique, interesting site online every day, up until the late 00s. But when social media hit, the whole "online communities being lucrative" thing more or less took off, and now everyone is just a jumbled mass on a few main sites. Even a lot of fringe sites, such as 420chan, have become extensively normalized.

People online used to be a lot more interesting, too, and there was a bit more creativity and humor in things. Of course, there was always hostility, but it was mostly kept within small circles. Now, people in real life are humiliated by thousands of people online who they don't know, and never will. You've got to keep a low profile, in today's age. And I just don't like how everything became political; I guess that it was inevitable, but it just sucks all the life out of everything.

Since I'm growing more different by the day, and I haven't had an online friend in roughly three or four years, I don't care about connecting with random people. The less people online, the better, but good luck with all of that. I just see most people getting more stupid by the day.

>>29558

I sort of had the same thing. One of my friends moved away over a week ago; I knew that friend for five years, and now that friend is practically gone forever. I only have two friends left, and I don't talk to them as much as I did with that one.

I'm sort of okay about it now, but for a while I was majorly freaking out. I just didn't know how to adjust. I'm not the kind of guy who can just make another friend, let alone replace them like objects. And even if I was, my interests are too weird and I'm too paranoid.

I thought that I could stand being alone. I can, but it is really fucking hard. I used to think that I knew how it was for you guys, and I sort of do, but I was like the "Lite" version, you know what I mean? I feel like an impostor; forgive me.

I can't believe the internet is so srsbusiness now. It's also full of these easily offended normalfags who obviously can't handle being on the internet. I was annoyed enough as it was when the whole "eurofag vs amerifat" thing started appearing on /a/ back on 4chan years ago, which never fucking existed before. I wasn't even aware there were posters from other countries back then nor did I or anyone else care or even ever bring it up but I think it was the creation of /sp/ that had to ruin fucking everything. Fuck them and their shit memes too. /co/ became a garbage board as well, the most disgusting easily offended neoliberal fucks invaded it. The only real escape now is to learn moonrunes and go to 2chan.

I'm sure a lot of us feel the same way, specially since the older you are the more you're likely to reminisce. Every once in a while I'll check sites I remember having an account for, only to find it gone, with no trace, replacement or notice left behind... its members scattered forever. It's sad, but such is the nature of the internet, to be ephemeral... and it's a nature that I think should always remain, so it becomes the task of those who enjoy it to keep it alive.
>>29558
I'm intrigued. As a HikiNEET I almost never feel unbearable lonely, at least nothing that participating in bulletin boards, hanging in an irc channel or playing online multiplayer games won't satisfy for a while. I enjoy being alone most of the time and I don't really like people that much. Best advice I can offer is to go out of your way to talk to others online, specially in community sites where you're more likely to find people you might end up meeting in person... like a board-games group or something similar. It mostly depends up to what degrees you consider yourself a hikikomori. If online-only will do, then just type in google "<interest of choice> community site / forum / board" and go from there.
>>29559
Human interaction is deemed necessary, if not essential, for most people... and you'd need to be very introverted to dismiss chances to engage with others, even online.
>>29560
I think, and have also read from others, that it seems the uprising of social media opened the gates of self-absorption and removed shame from attention-seeking, in all its levels. This affected boards, forums and similar sites oriented towards discussion or having a community... where now there is people actively seeking attention for the simple sake of itself. I do care about connecting with random people though; I force myself to interact with others to remind myself how different and varied people are... it keeps my head grounded and provides me with insight to attempt to be humble and grateful for the few joys life provides me. That way I keep my expectations rock-bottom-low and (hopefully) won't get disappointed with anything life hits me with.
>>29562
Boredom and lack of conflict to align oneself with. When there isn't a serious issue to rally behind, people will apparently grow discontent with not being able to be part of something and will instead argue in favour of less important convictions and absorb an obsessive ideological proselytism, which used to be seen as despicable, or at least a trait that should be avoided.

I also got the anki app and a deck of radicals. About halfway through at this point, and if things continue as they have been I'll be grabbing the 2k kanji deck in about a week.

If anything, the people who truly want or try to help make things worse because of how illusioned they are with the world. They believe that it's impossible for a complete mess of a... thing to exist. They would sooner tell you to be grateful for the things you have and ignore the fact that whenever you get a smile on your face it's mere seconds to minutes until it fades away and it only gets worse over time. It's been getting worse for years now. I enjoy less things and my life is mostly media consumption to distract myself from the thoughts of suicide.

Simple tasks are only a source of embarrassment for me now. Anime only makes me jealous of the characters. I only want to be asleep all the time. I feel like I want some kind of help when there really can't be any. How can people say life is a gift when others just want theirs to end?

>Happy couples make me mad, especially after seeing my parents divorce.

Take solace in the fact that the vast majority of 3D relationships today will end in the same way that your parents' did. Even if they're happy (or act happy, as young couples often make it a point to shower each other in histrionic displays of affection in public), odds are they'll be wrapped up in melodramatic bickering within a few days, if not hours.

The amount of misery that comes packaged with relationships far outweighs the pleasure (at least for males). It's nothing to envy. I know it's not much, but at least you're not one of those poor bastards that has to "ask permission" to do what you want with your free time.

Good luck on your job orientation. Is it your first job?

Jobs freak me out. I can't stand being around people. It's starting to bother my parents, and myself as well, I'm 22 and have only had one job. It's intensely pathetic. Have to look into temp agencies and stuff.

But yeah the job I had was terrible, I was anxious all the time and intensely scared my co-workers. It was a high-volume food service job, I was serving fake ethnic food to people. I hated myself for it. I hated the customers for eating the garbage we served them. I hated the higher-ups for buying into the weird cult-like training/brainwashing seminars they got sent to (no really: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erhard_Seminars_Training). It was an awful awful 9 months. My digestive system took a hit and I felt sick a lot of the time. Now it's been nearly a year and I'm still a NEET, slowly getting addicted to an online video game. Pathetic, depressing, sad.

I had one job before this one, years ago. Part of why I've taken so long to try and get out there again. It was assembly line packaging. You'd assemble cases and put DVD's in the slot, that sort of thing. Sounds easy but it's not given the speed you're expected to work at. And the whole time the teams performance is put on a big screen to shame you. Combine that with all the remarks from management about how "anyone could do this job" (as the whole line struggles, even the experienced ones) and it really took a toll. Eventually I just stopped showing up. So for this job I just pretended it didn't happen. They never paid me for that last week's worth of work; probably why they make it so unbearable, didn't get any training so it's not like they lost anything from me just walking out.

It doesn't help I started that job near the holiday season as a temp. Not my brightest moment.

I'm more optimistic about this job though. For one I intentionally waited until after the holidays to apply and I'm getting more training than I might expect which gives the impression they actually want people to stick around.

Shame about the seminar shit, seems like that's the snake oil of our day. Heard about some of these, they seem really corny. I can see why people would get drawn in though. It can be hard to tell who is and isn't legit, all in the presentation. Especially when they're desperate.

What sort of fake ethnic food? Always wondered how legit some places are. I suspect a lot of Italian places around me fake it. Kind of blended into the larger culture. Still good but I can tell a clear difference when I go to the annual Italian Cultural Festival in my area, most "Italian" restaurants don't hold a candle.

My grandmother died about a month ago. I was the one responsible for her care for 4 months leading up to her death. That basically meant that I was around to help her with stuff around the house and make sure she got her pain meds. It was very difficult to watch the cancer get the better of her and watch her suffer extreme pain while all I could do was stand there because I had already given her maximum doses of morphine. Did I fuck up somehow? Was I not good enough of a caregiver and did she die sooner than she would have if it had been someone else? Why me I am the least competent of the family? I feel I am just barely able to keep myself from being consumed by despair. I was lucky to be close to her and live with her for free. It feel jarring though. Going from always keeping an ear out for if she called to doing fucking nothing. I feel frustrated too but I can't exactly pin down why.

I had to help out so much that I didn't have much time to ruminate and be depressed like I normally am, but now I do have time and I dread being alive.

If you didn't do a good job of taking care of her I doubt she would have lasted nearly that long dude. The fact it's 4 months and not 4 days is proof you did your job well.
I was placed in a similar situation a few years ago, and in my case the guy died just a few days after he was left in the care of me and my mom.

Pizzagate is a false news report designed by alt-right wingers from Twitter, that was spread by fucking BuzzFeed, who wanted to disparage the Clinton campaign (not she needed to be disparaged, she's a terrible person and a liar - Trump is no better for the record but I don't want to get into that).

It was based around, obviously, satanic cult reports in the 80's/90's. I am fairly certain it's all absolute bullshit.

Look into Ted Gunderson, who kind of started this whole shtick. I'm inclined to not believe him after looking into his stories beyond the surface but maybe you'll have a different reaction. It's certainly compelling regardless of the truth.

The powers that be call this "perception management" - Altering public perception of an event to make it fantastical and surreal in order to make it that much less believable.

Are there sick fucks who torture people (including or perhaps even especially children) for their pleasure and may or may not be in positions of power that they abuse? Absolutely. Is the CIA kidnapping children and putting them through satanic ritual abuse? It's safe to say that I'm on the fence about that.

I bought a ps4 which showed up today, and I don't even know why I got it...
I was n64 kid on christmas levels of happy when I got my ps3, but the ps4 was unappealing when it lunched and it's still unappealing now that I got one connected to my tv. Could be because I became a PC gamer since then, could be because there's very few games for the thing that interest me, or could be the hefty price I paid for it ($600 for a 20th anniversary edition) but I'm pretty "meh" about it so far. Also doesn't help the seller neglected to mention some scuffs on the system, and that there's apparently some compatibility problems with my TV which makes the picture look like pixalated shit. The filmwear is too high to hack, and the specs are much better on the pro version making it feel even more useless. I'm not upset about buying it, I know I could probably flip the thing for $700+, it's just a funny feeling is all. I wish I could be as happy about it as I was when I got my ps1,ps2, or ps3, but instead I just don't care...

So I think that I might've found a somewhat decent app that can actually get my worthless brain to learn more than 10 Kanji. It has things to help learn how to draw kanji and a bunch of things to teach you what words are tied to or can be used with the kanji or something like that. It seems to have the bells and whistles needed to properly learn kanji, however it seems that only the beginner lesson {80 kanji) is available and you have to pay to unlock the rest of the stuff.

Anyway, the thing is called Japanese Kanji Study with some Japanese stuff written after a hyphen. This thing might actually be useful.

It costs 12 dollars to unlock the thing. That's quite a bit a shekels that the greedy jew that made this thing wants, but maybe its worth it?

Same things that people do now I suppose. The current affairs, what people were up to. The War if your country took part in Korea, then you had television come in the mid 50s. That said, the 1950s aren't of a massive appeal for me fantasy wise. There wasn't the same economic boom here that there was in Europe and the United States. If I'm remembering right, we had food rationing until 1950 even.

>>30022
1950s weren't that prudish. It's actually kind of the beginning period of that trend towards vulgar topics losing their taboo. You want that to start being unacceptable, you go for the 1850s at least and even that's pushing it in some parts of the world. A lot of the European cities were surprisingly open societies by then, and in the US by probably the 1870s you had people like Nellie Bly showing up.

Then you have the parts that are still like the old world. In Kazakhstan for example, even today if you go into the really rural areas, people won't talk about their family at all if they don't know you well. Superstition regarding the evil eye that still lingers in the remote parts.

I can't believe I had to edit this shit twice. That's the last time I post just as I'm about to fall asleep.

In Casablanca (and other movies from that time) they're drinking in nearly every scene, they showed smoking and alcohol in children's cartoons, people drove drunk like it was nothing, there were popular songs about being drunk and men were almost always a little buzzed.

A lot of people have noticed that among the very old, the 50s were their favorite decade. I really don't know why. To me, it always seemed like it was a fake decade, although it was in between two major wars. My father glorifies the 50s even though he grew up among the hippy generation and became an adult in the early 70s.

Maybe I just buy too much into the Norman Rockwell ideal. Still, it feels like things had to be different then looking back into childhood when people like my Grandpa were still alive. And I don't think my generation will change any as they age, or even gen x... you've got 40+ year old men rocking hair dye and going for drinks every weekend to distract them from reality. They don't have a clue how to fix anything, how to make anything. And they're so used to comfort. It's just sickening. I want off this ride.

This used to bother me, but now I think it's actually necessary. It is tragic that we seem to have lost the will (or maybe means) to have agency over our own lives, and that many people will go through life in a perpetual state of adolescence. However, the more people that disconnect from the system, the sooner it will change. I don't mean this in an anarchistic or communist way - the change could be that future generations will see us and be disgusted, driving them to become assertive and dignified in a way that we aren't. Or maybe it'll all collapse and we'll end up as slaves to the Chinese or whoever.

I've been reminiscent of the past, specifically from playing games made in early-mid 2000's (Touhou, A tale of two sisters, Kingdom Hearts, etc) it's hard to describe but it makes me kind of sad, as these are the games that have the most "heart" to them, they're innocent, like you can really feel the devs enjoyed making the game. They were from a time where you didn't have to worry about the world ending, no marxism, no threats of ww3, no PC bullshit, etc. Nowadays games and a lot of works in general just feel like they don't have a "soul".

Hey, funny, been having the same problem. They prune accounts after 11 months or so, if that gives you any solace. Apparently there'll be an official announcement tomorrow as to the state of things. I haven't heard anything yet but wild speculation.

Work sucks. How do I avoid giving into stress from a particularly bad string of days and avoid just up and quitting from it? Things have gotten better lately (better hours, overall less stress) but some days just fucking suck, and they make me yearn for when I was a NEET.

just stream your anime. It's not like it used to be, the streaming sites are less shady and add new episodes quickly and stream in like 720p.
>> No. 30072 [Edit]
>>30071
I wish people would get over the streaming meme. 9anime.to and kissanime stream in 720p and it's fine. I don't have room to download anime (had 800mb of space just today and had to clear out my hdd) so I've watched tons of streaming anime. If it weren't for kissasian or crunchyroll tokusatsu would be pretty hard to find. Especially since the crunchyroll rips of the most recent Ultraman were no where to be found on nyaa for days and only had about 3 seeders each. I had to start downloading the Spanish release and get the sub track separately but that got tedious so I just streamed it.

Do you also wish everyone had good internet connection speeds, and wifi everywhere they go?

That's a good point, but the average person has decent enough internet. Even when my internet was getting really bad buffering for a few minutes worked fine.

As for that second part, I'm hikki so I've never really been without like that. I mostly mean for currently airing stuff too. Downloading movies are complete batches is usually the best way to go especially for older shows. Still thinking it's cancer because of quality is being ignorant.

So you don't mind watermarks and yellow hard coded subs?
>> No. 30076 [Edit]

Then when the streaming site drops your show you'll never be able to see it again.

Storage space for hard drives is super cheap nowadays so it's better to just download it and have it forever.
>> No. 30077 [Edit]

Streaming still produces lower quality, even if the resolution is 720p.
Like, YouTube audio does not match 320kbs even at highest quality.

I didn't download madVR and ReClock for nothing.

I bought these little baby chocolate bunnies in gold foil, and I gave one of them to my pet cockroach. She looked so cute when she crawled up to it and felt it with her palps and antennae, but then I worried the chocolate might make her sick so I took it away and gave her kanten instead.

Thanks. I do have a goal in mind, I plan to move in with one of my friends sometime in the next 6-12 months once his current roommate leaves. That's my main goal right now. The alternative is being forced to stay with my parents, which would honestly be fine, but they are moving across the country around the same time frame, and I really don't want to move so far away from my friends.

Honestly, if my parents were staying put or in the immediate area, the temptation to stay NEET would skyrocket... but that would just bite me in the ass in another 10-15 years once they got older.

So I was heading to bed in my dream when I hear a drumming sound outside that started off slow, some kids started screaming and the drumming got faster and louder until a explosion went off and I woke up in my bed with ringing in my ears.
At first I thought all that happened was real until a second later I remembered I have tinnitus.
The transition seemed so smooth.

After Dragonteam stopped subbing Dragon Ball Super, I kind of didn't know what to do since I didn't want to deal with getting subs from a shitty group, so I ended up not watching DBS for a long while.

After seeing DBS brought up an alarming amount of times earlier this week, I decided to get back to watching it, and thanks to some great people seeding the non-shitty versions of the subs, I downloaded everything and watched, like, 30 episodes or something. It was fun and I enjoyed it.

On an unrelated note, I seem to forget that it's 2017. I guess it just seems so irrelevant to me that I can't help it.
>> No. 30085 [Edit]

The new arc is decent. I had dropped DBS but started watched since then again and I haven't been disappointed (again) yet.

Society is going to be fucked way more than it already is with all this stuff happening. I just want to get enough money to live on my own and watch anime and play video games for the rest of my life. But life ain't so simple, I got burdens to take care of and what not.

Same. I'm hoping that by the time my parents pass, which will be probably another 25 years or so, I'll have inherited enough from them to basically retire early. It's not gonna be a lavish lifestyle, but enough to live in a not-shit apartment or rental, pay bills and food, and torrent anime and video games until I die.

That's the life I want.
>> No. 30097 [Edit]
>>30096
Don't bother with renting anything, it'll cost more. Don't buy a house either; build one/get one built.

Something like what this guy did: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCymqbXEQ6qfPi5v8DUZr6dA

If you can handle the small space it can be done quite cheaply. Sure it'll earn you the eccentric label quite fast, but brohno's were going to do that anyways, and as for space, well, we've spent so much time confined to our rooms anyways it can't be much different right?

I've been biking around traffic for the first time since I need to get a job and a bike is all I have. I fell over in the middle of street because I went to fast and turned wrong and was about to hit someones car. My hands hurts so fucking much. I wish I never had to go outside again. Watching NHK was a mistake I want to just live the way Satou does until I fall over dead from no food.
