Last one (>>23024) hit the bump limit.
It was nice having a thread to casually express those somber thoughts.

Tohno-chan is a website made by the UN to see just how low people can get. Even today they keep charts and spreadsheets on it's users.
You didn't hear that from me though.

I've been sleeping more lately. Napping through the afternoon. Even if I cared to stay awake, caffeine just hasn't been doing it for me.
I'm not really worried about it. Sometimes I get harassed because I sleep too much, but meh, they say the same when I sleep 4 hours every night as well.
It's not like I'm going to accomplish any more or less either way.

Do you have a sex doll, or have you thought about getting one?
Or maybe a non-sexual, but still life~sized doll?

Does cuddling with them or just having them around help dispel loneliness?
Is it more satisfying to have "sex" with the doll than just masturbating with your hands?

I always thought they're really creepy, but now there are some anime-inspired ones that basically look like oversized figurines.

The only thing holding me back from buying one right now is that I imagine it must be a lot of work to clean them.

I've noticed fabric dolls are sometimes cheaper, but like >>27407 said, they seem harder to clean. Even if you aren't doing lewd things, I imagine they'd stain and get dirty easily the way a daki might. Also, The fingers are ugly on a lot of these, and the faces look weird. I'm reminded of a few old figma figures I used to own with blank faces, which you could apply face decals to. They didn't look nearly as good as the molded faces the figures came with. I think the ideal doll would be something that looks like a 1/1 BJD

Why are you unhappy, /tc/?

From what I've gathered, tc is one of the few positive things in Tohno's life.
>> No. 27427 [Edit]
I'd be lying if I said there haven't been times. It's been stressful at times, got banned from paypal because of TC, lost some friends because of it, made some others because of it. Probably missed out on a few opportunities because of it too. Keeping the peace has been hard, that's for sure. In the past people would keep pushing issues that would divide the user base and expect me to pick sides, I'd try to avoid that most of the time but either way it'd hurt the community all the same.
I guess I haven't lost too much money on the site at least. I'm not making a cent off it, but it's not as expensive to maintain as some might think. In the end it's all I've really got though. I can't really see myself hanging out in too many other places. I've tried joining other communities and rarely like what I find there. The internet has been ruined by normies, and there's just not many places left to turn to anymore. For better or worse this is my home.
>> No. 27428 [Edit]
Tohno, this place is truly a time capsule of the old internet. This community while sometimes flawed reminds me of happier times of my youth. I miss the old imageboard4free & *chan cultures, but they're long dead.
As I get closer to my 30s, I realize that we're a decreasing minority on the internet. The internet is normie-centric and it's so hard to find websites that have people like us on it now.
Don't ever close Tohno-chan, I will buy it from you and keep it running until I die if you ever lose interest.
>> No. 27429 [Edit]
For what it's worth, TC has quickly become my favorite site. It just feels right. Even something as small as the caption on the homepage makes me feel right at home. Thanks for sticking around.

How have your experiences with social media been like?

I wish I never used discord. I feel like I've wasted a lot of time trying to fit into places that I simply can't. I leaned more on older weirdos I met on imageboards when I was a teenager, rather than simply accepting that I was a strange loser and enjoying what I wanted to. Now I hardly ever use discord other than one obnoxious kid that must have nobody else to bother. There are some other people that check in occasionally, but I don't think they'd miss me or anything. I'd still feel guilty if I deleted it right now, though. Other than that, I have used much in the way of social media. I think it's kind of disgusting.
I don't regret visiting imageboards in the slightest however. I just wish I was more adventurous early on. Never really felt a sense of belonging like I've found with the few sites I frequent these days. For once, I don't feel quite so alone.

DO NOT exchange discords or other forms of social media in this thread.

I spent a couple years server hopping on discord. I like our IRC channel and the people in it, but I wanted to explore a bit and find a second community to broaden my horizons a little, maybe step a bit out of my comfort zone and meet new people so that I wouldn't be too caught up in an echo chamber where people might only be telling me what they think I want to hear. But I still wanted to meet relatively like minded people I could get along with so as to maybe make friends.
I joined far too many communities to count during this time. Typically related to otaku interests, anime manga games neetdom and such. It was a miserable experience to say the least.
What I found left me feeling a bit like Kino on her travels. I'd join these communities, hang out there for a while, and before long find myself feeling alienated in one form or another and move on. I never got banned from any, but I left many with no intention of ever going back.

A very common problem with discord servers is they're filled with -15 year olds who all want to be heard but have nothing to say. So what do they do? they post random emoji or meme. At best they greet each other, but little if anything more. "hi ___" followed by maybe a hug bot command and an emoji, and that's pretty much the height of your typical conversation. I almost feel sorry for these kids. They have zero social skills but want to socialize, and this is the best they can manage.
I've tried to engage people in actual conversations on these channels, you know, talk to them with words, like a human. They have these knee jerk reactions to seeing any post that's more than a sentence long. In multiple cases, people see these multiple sentence long posts and assume people are fighting or arguing. That's if you even get that far, since kids will still spam the previously mentioned stuff while you're trying to have a conversation. They don't care if it's rude to cut in, if anything they're probably annoyed you're taking their attention away.
The problem only gets worse as these servers grow in size. I've seen discord servers/channels be -nothing- but emoji. In a few cases it was absolute floods of the things, the page would scroll endlessly with all the emoji kids spam.

Exactly why I hate any non-anonymous form of communication. It exerts a chilling effect that gradually leads to more and more anodyne posts that no one will disagree with.

I'm not sure when this was, but there are plenty of people in their early 20's today that are more or less the same. It's something I deeply resent. Hard to find decent conversation most places. At least now I can avoid it.
>> No. 27422 [Edit]
Yeah while I don't want to alienate myself, I also don't want to sacrifice my individuality to turn into a sheep. I still have my unpopular opinions, I just try to be careful about how far I go with them. There's been a number of times I started down that road, and realized it was going to piss some people off and lead to a lot of arguing, so I'd stop myself right then and there.

Hm this is a good point. I've also read of people who don't have the ability to feel pain [1], and this translates to emotional pain as well (i.e. they don't feel sadness). My rebuttal here would be that for this specific class of people, they're only selectively experiencing the world, since they could have their hand on a hot stove and not feel anything even though they'd be burned in a few seconds.

I'm not sure how this applies to the example you mentioned of anti-social people though. I guess it should also be noted that the suffering I mentioned isn't really sadness per se but more of a tedium/weariness (for me at least). Despite not experiencing sadness or fear, do they still experience boredom and frustration?

>> No. 27402 [Edit]
>they're only selectively experiencing the world
Pain isn't an intrinsic part of the world though. It's a biological adaptation. We perceive things as unpleasant for functional reasons, but our perception is arbitrary.

>do they still experience boredom and frustration
I don't know. It depends on the individual I would guess.

I keep myself involved with imageboard communities. Be it partaking in/organizing events or running my own site. It feels good to give back to the people that allow me to not feel completely alone. I can only hope that I give them the same.

Do you ever feel like hurting other people, physically or emotionally? Would that give you any sense of catharsis? I feel increasingly like I can't relate to or trust anybody. People constantly disappoint me in real life and online, but I can't stop myself from interacting with them because like an awful addiction, I can't live without it.

Hurting other people is a way of interacting with others that could make you feel good and protect you from disappoint and alienation. It doesn't matter what the other person thinks of you, because you can enjoy yourself regardless of their opinion if you're causing them pain.

I read an article once that sadistic people have a low baseline level of happiness, and that sadism is not only something they like, but something they require to uplift their mood.

Hurting people isn't something I particularly enjoy doing or something I feel like doing, but I find that I do and say hurtful things without really thinking about it. I've talked about it before on another imageboard. The people there say I'm fucked up and evil for it.
Whatever, I don't have anyone to hurt now.
>> No. 27398 [Edit]
If you were truly fucked up or evil for it, you'd enjoy it or at the least be indifferent to it. we all have slip ups and say bad things sometimes. Weather or not you regret your actions is what determines if you have a sense of morality or not.
>> No. 27399 [Edit]
I am pretty indifferent to it now. Of course, now I avoid interactions all together. I try harder to be kind or at least respectful of others.
I guess part of me feels looked down on, which justifies my own issues with others.
It just bothered me that someone said that. I realize I might be pretty clueless about the nature of social interactions, but I didn't think I was that horrible. It was just the only way I knew how to interact with others.
>> No. 27400 [Edit]
People say offensive hurtful things on the internet all the time, especially on (most)imageboards. If anyone's evil, it's these people who can't find joy in their lives without putting other people down. In my years on the net, I've been called every name in the book, stalked, threatened, harassed, trolled, scammed, doxed, you name it. At some point you just gotta get used to it and develop a thinker skin.

i'm 26 and still live with my parents, while i know they don't hate me, they do put alot of pressure on me to do normal things; get a 3DPD and focus on collage etc. i understand what they mean but they're so oppressive i almost makes it worse. and i can't do anything against them whatever they say goes. but at the sametime they do love me, it's this weird back and forth and i just feel alot from it.

I hate driving and live with my parents in a city you have to drive a ton to go anywhere, I'm finally moving out in large part just to go to a city with good public transit and ditch my car. I mostly hate everything about parking, needing to plan out ahead of time where you can park when you want to go somewhere, actually finding a spot once you're there, and how nerve-wracking it is that even the slightest bump is a huge deal. Also compared to the train where I can just do whatever, driving time just feels like completely wasted chunks of my day where my only option is to constantly be searching for enough podcasts to fill the time.

Mine also pressure me to get a license. For me, it's not about a fear of driving but simply a lack of motivation. The exams here are quite difficult and it's quite rare for people to pass on their first attempt. I'd rather not waste so much money and time on something that I am not guaranteed to pass anyway. You also need to pay absurd amounts of money as a car owner (parking tickets, insurances, taxes) that I'd also rather keep for myself.
>> No. 27220 [Edit]
I just got my license last November, and I had the same fear you do now for all the years I've been out of highschool and license-less. I thought, when I was getting it, that i would never want to go further than driving around my town or to the nearest town over. I really was that scared of it and I felt that I could never ever drive on a highway, to me it felt that I was mentally incapable. When I imagined trying to navigate such a chaotic mess of other people in massive deathboxes I just couldn't see how my clumsy ass could do it. Well, I've had a car for all of two or so months now, and it honestly does get so much easier over a little bit of time. Just last month I took a 60 mile drive out into the countryside to visit a favorite old town of mine, and the only problems I had were some navigational errors like missing a turn. Control-wise, it just doesn't feel like anything, it feels routine and like something I could do while eating. Keep in mind, I'm a diagnosed high-functioning autist and I've had to take classes on social interaction before just to land a job. Now I do drive to work 6 of 7 days a week, so that helps.

It's an important skill to have if only because it means you have the freedom to get up and go somewhere if you want, scary or not. It seems a lot harder and a lot scarier than it is but if you haven't done it yet, you just have no way of knowing. I really thought I would never pass the road skills test. Maybe it really is too much for some people and I certainly think it could be, but you never know until you try.

I'm still pretty young. My parents just don't want me to be a hikikomori. My mom mostly just wants me to do something, anything. Meet people and all of that. My dad doesn't seem to care about me socializing or anything, but he does want me to do something with myself. He's more supportive and understanding than my mother, but also has higher expectations as a result. Tells me he'd be doing the same thing as I am in my shoes, but if I lived with him, I'd have to work.
My mom doesn't make me do anything. She's kind of crazy. An alcoholic too. I'm uncertain what exactly she wants for me, but she kinda loses it if I talk about possibly moving out. She's never really said anything to me, but from what I've heard I'm pretty scared to move out. At the same time, she's scared of pushing me away, so she's very accommodating.

Is this the only anime/weeb community left that hasn't been over run by children?
Every time I find a new one to join it's the same thing, retarded teenagers who wont shut up about school or spoiled rich kids and their college crap. It's all "dur hur I'm gonna be a doctor I'm gonna be a laywer" fuck you. I feel so fucking old lately and this shit doesn't help one bit. It's just so ackward being in these servers/channels with kids that are half my age. Not that it's uncommon here either. Where the fuck are all the 30+ weebs? Do they just kill themselves when they hit 30 or do they turn into normal fags and quit the internet? What the fuck man.

Does anybody else gets sad when playing competitive games? Not necessarily modern video-games but things like go and mahjong as well. I get. I usually start very happy but then I realize how far I am from becoming one of the best in the game, how other players defeat me easily, how even though I make great choices I lose, or how I fail to defend myself from an attack, and it's all sadness after this. Feeling despondent and with no hope of ever making it in the game. This applies to many things as well. Even when playing against people near my rank I lose. It's disappointing.

I just don't play any competitive or non-competitive games online, it's not much fun to me. Whether I'm good or bad doesn't matter. I used to be fairly good at UT 2004 and any other fps I layed my hands on, but eventually the novelty of playing with strangers online wore off.
I used to play Tekken and other ps1/ps2 games as well as chess and card games against friends and my brothers when I was a kid, but it's been a long time since I've had any friends at all, and I broke off contact to my brothers ten years ago.

I do play single player games sometimes, mostly puzzle (e.g. Portal) and strategy games (e.g. Blades of the Shogun). I also have other solitary hobbies like juggling.

I've never been in a clan or guild or TRPG group or anything like that because I don't like socializing with other people.

Frustrated maybe but not sad, but I don't really play any serious multiplayer games, I play Warthunder sometimes and that is about it.

Not sad but incredibly nervous. It's like public speaking but for gaming, and you feel like any little mistake you make is going to be scrutinized to hell and back.
I don't bother with them anymore, and if I do, then I don't take them seriously at all and fuck up on purpose since it's easier to be a clown than to have my skills and thus me as a whole judged.

Is there any comforting fantasies or thoughts you have or entertain regularly? I'm sure a life with your waifu is one of them but what about others?
I like to think about being a cute loli and having a cute and caring older sister to grow up and fall in love with. We would climb trees, shoot water guns at each other, play in a pool, read stories before bed, make desserts, cuddle at night and spend practically all of our time together. It helps me fall asleep and makes me feel better when I'm sad.

What was the reasoning behind your refusal? I wish I were as magnanimous or financially independent as you are (I assume). Funny to say this since you started your post with the same premise but my circumstance was the exact antithesis of yours. For quite a long while I've pinned my hopes on an inheritance, one of my parents eventually passed away but there were constant hindrances that prevented from getting the inheritance to this day. I blame myself for putting myself in such a desperate position and have come to accept that there is a chance I'll never get it.
>> No. 27172 [Edit]
I'm filled with guilt over my parents. I've always been a burden and I still feel very bad about it today, I just can't accept anything from them at this point. Refusing the inheritance won't solve this issue but at least it will not add more weight to my conscience.

I use fantasies as escapism and retreat into them whenever I have nothing else to do. I have a few where I self insert into anime, or where I live somewhere else, away from my family, or where I am some sort of important person who plays some major role in something. Or all of the above. I even come up with elaborate one-off fantasies that I usually drop a few days later. My fantasies usually have elaborate stories and sometimes even connect. Several representations of myself come together in one of my fantasies. Do not ask.

My fantasies are usually one or more of the following:
-self insert into anime (or based off of an anime)
-me being away from my home
-me being important in some way
They are usually reoccurring with me revisiting them and revising them. If there is some major plot point I will usually go through several scenarios of it.

I have had some imaginary friends in the past too, if they count, but I am not good at that whole shtick so they usually go away. They are not very good in comparison to fantasies. If I feel like being held I usually cope by imagining myself or the representation of me being held in one of the fantasies. I notice that my fantasies are always in the third person rather than in my first person.

That is one of the few things that holds me back from suicide, it makes me feel like I am destroying worlds. These worlds in my head will cease to exist. The train will smash through them as well as me.
>> No. 27285 [Edit]
A recurring fantasy that I have been having is about becoming a magical girl, about how I would use my powers to become rich by invading parliament and forcing them to give me millions of dollars and then I would live in a mansion with lots of maids.
