Have you given any thought to what would become of your stuff when you die? Do you have any plans set for parting it out among friends and family, or does it not matter to you?

Nope. I don't know anyone sentimental enough to keep my junk.
>> No. 25944 [Edit]
Most of what I treasure is digital, so unless someone cares enough to erase the hard drives I suppose it'll just sit there slowly bit-rotting away.
>> No. 25945 [Edit]
That image always makes me sad. But no, I haven't really thought about it yet. Much like the rest of my life.
>> No. 25946 [Edit]
I don't want to leave any traces of my existence, the thought of it appals me. Fortunately I do not have to many possessions and those of relative "importance" are digital so I'll just have to "eliminate" it.

It's one of my favorite images, it's more wistful/pensive to me than sad.

I don't really have anyone to give much to. leaving money and my car to my mom is pretty straight forward, but everything else I'm a bit lost on. I could probably div up my fig collection and other weeb trash to people I know online, but the practicality of having that carried out seems far fetched at best. An executor would have to figure out how to run irc or discord, contact people, see who wants what, and convince them to give up some contact info so my junk can be sent to them. There's no way anyone I know would be willing let alone able to do that. More than likely, my mom would probably just hold an estate sale and sell everything I had for peanuts, then after a while toss out anything that doesn't sell. I've got a rather large lego collection that would be nice to give to another collector, or maybe some kids who'd make good use of them, but again I doubt my mom would really respect any of my wishes. No clue what would happen to TC after I'm gone. Anyone I could trust to run it probably wouldn't want to, and vice versa. I figured if nothing else I could pay up a few years in advance for the server at least and let whatever happens happen.
My digital archives don't really matter, there's nothing saved which is particularly rare or hard to come by, or that anyone other than myself would appreciate much, so it might be preferred to have my hard drives formatted and destroyed. I assume those drives would probably just get picked up for a couple dollars at a yard sale however, and most of their content would be deleted to make way for the new owners data. One way or another I think most of my stuff is just going to end up in the trash anyway.

Tohno, I think you should set up some way of people knowing in case you died, like a bi-annual status report that if you miss people can assume you're dead. Just an idea.
>> No. 25949 [Edit]
Lack of activity on twitter/irc would be a good enough indicator, no?
>> No. 25950 [Edit]
That's sort of one of the reasons I occasionally post with my trip, when it's not something personal or site related, it's as a sort of means of reminding people I'm still here, still active, that I haven't given up on anime & games or gone turbonormie as we've seen all too often with sites and communities managed by people who for one reason or another get tired of the life and abandon what they've made.
>> No. 25951 [Edit]
I wrote a will the first time I took a flight that was just "everything goes to my parents", but I'm considering getting a notary and having them sell all my stuff and then using the money to build a pointlessly extravagant tomb just for the heck of it. Marble slabs, statuary, all that stuff. Maybe chisel a scene of my favorite anime onto the marble.

If I could plan it with time I could give it all to any of you, because I don't know anyone else who could appreciated it. I have accumulated so much in the last 20 years and it should be a shame if it was lost.
>> No. 25954 [Edit]
I'm poor, my net worth is probably under $500 and all my physical belongings could fit in a car trunk, none of which is particularly rare or worth keeping. Just a bunch of clothes and electronics, some tools, my desktop, laptop and phone. None of my computers or phone are encrypted, I should look into that.

I think my dad will just throw it all out. No friends or family that would care about going through my junk.
>> No. 25967 [Edit]
I want my fumos and figures to go to a good home when I die but it won't happen. Probably they will get binned or taken to a second hand store and then who knows what. My library, weapons and models I can just leave to my nephew. I don't really have a cause I care about and I hate my family, so the money can go to some anime studio or a donation to Zun or something.
>> No. 25968 [Edit]
>so the money can go to some anime studio
Is that even legal to put in your will?
>> No. 25969 [Edit]
I think you can do anything you want with your stuff, it's yours after all. one of my parents says they wont leave me anything, I looked it up and sure enough they're well within their rights. I can fight it in court after they die but that apparently has a slim chance of doing anything and rarely pans out.
>> No. 25970 [Edit]
The problem is that animation studios aren't even in the same country, which might be a problem. On top of that, whatever will regulations they have might be different like the number of needed witnesses.
>> No. 25971 [Edit]
I guess the anon would have to research that if they're serious about it.
>> No. 25972 [Edit]
Most likely my stuff will go to my brother and his descendants, even if he's older than me he's probably healthier overall than me. I've always thought that if the unlikely happened and things came to posthumous appreciation like many writers and artists (hah) people could look back on my really old drawings and writings and see how long it took for me to actually develop skills, and that could end up inspiring or amusing kids here and there. But then again, technology at that point might become advanced enough that there wouldn't be many historians that bother. Although of course there are art history geeks that collect anything and everything so by chance it's my crap that survives after a nuclear war or some other massive destruction historians could comment then. It's a silly but not uncommon train of thought I guess.
>> No. 25973 [Edit]
I think in the case of vague or impossible conditions the court just voids that provision. I suppose in the case of leaving money to an anime studio they'd have to make "reasonable" efforts to try to contact the studio.

Wouldn't it be nice to give your things to other Tohno-channers who want it?
>> No. 25975 [Edit]
The concept is nice, and I'd prefer to do that myself, but it doesn't seem very practical. I mean how do you carry that out?
>> No. 25976 [Edit]
I think its too morbid and defeats the purpose of anonymity. At least send things to each other while you're still alive. There was a secret santa thing.
>> No. 25978 [Edit]
If I was on my deathbed I might do that, but I think a sudden death is more likely to happen.
>> No. 25987 [Edit]
I want everything to go to my younger brother, I've let my parents know this. Knowing them they'll probably keep all of it and lock it in a storage unit not even knowing what most of it is.

I'd like to gift him my digital stuff too but I'd rather not have my drives poked around after I'm dead. We have a mutual agreement that if when either of us dies all digital storage is to be wiped. It's a bit of a shame because it'd be nice to hand him my plex setup but it's all mixed in with other junk and I don't think he'd care to figure out how to maintain it anyways.

reading all your posts on /so/ about death brought me to tears for the first time in about a year.
I don't want to die. I don't want any of you to die! Why do we have to grow old and grow further apart and eventually die.
But at the same time, I guess death is comforting to the misanthropes of the world who didn't want to be here in the first place.
Why do we have to die? Why did the good, happy times have to fade away?

I love you all! I'm sorry for being such emotional dreck.
>> No. 25990 [Edit]
Appreciated, anon. Just how small was the chance that we met here? Hold on a moment and be greatful. Even if you don't want to live in the first place, at least we could suffer together.
>> No. 25991 [Edit]
Let's all suffer together.

So that you can appreciate life

No, he's got a point. How can I appreciate something if I can't have it for eternity? Maybe my appetite is too large for a human but that's how I feel all the same.
