I dreamt of a global conspiracy involving the upper echelons of the government to prevent humans from becoming giants. We lived in a walled metropolitan city, and the government had giant women in other completely walled areas, kept secret from humans. The actual natural destiny of human beings was to become giants, but they used chemicals to prevent us from becoming giants, chemicals hidden in everything.
I saw a giant woman in a minuscule area sized 4 stone brick cubicle.

Were you watching a certain popular anime about giants recently?

Hah hah, no. The thought of it only crossed my mind as I posted that in this thread. I am completely unfamiliar with said anime/manga outside of some random pictures I saw of its manga and anime years ago.
Amusing, indeed.

That's fascinating and feels too complex for a dream. Maybe it wasn't a dream, but a message.

What are some things that really bug you?
Things that genuinely piss you off?

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

I think the three episode rule is bs since certain anime are nothing but slow build up, but the ending makes it worth it in its way. School Days was all worth it for those last few episodes. Anime can be enjoyed in so many different ways for different reasons, so the rigid measures of "objective quality" anime reviewers like to pretend exist are annoying. People subscribe to these nonsense standards because they can't appreciate the uniqueness an anime can have.
>> No. 38238 [Edit]
Also often 3 episodes is way too generous

Saw a movie called Palm Springs last night, since I'm in the area for the time. Had no idea what to expect since I don't like reading summaries or watching trailers. Last thing I expected was a Groundhog Day style movie. It was pretty neat, from edge of tomorrow to happy death day, it's a neat concept which can be very fun to play around. This movie made it into a rom/com with two people stuck in this loop thing together. There's a third guy in there too who acts like an antagonist of sorts, but he doesn't really do all that much and is gone for 90% of the movie. Didn't really even seem like the characters had a whole lot of motivation to end it compared to similar stories, but I guess the moral was about moving on with life and all that jazz.

Given that many people here likely have a lot of spare time (and especially with recent circumstances, even those who attended uni or had fulltime jobs are probably in front of a computer as well), what do you spend your days doing? Is most of it spent in front of the screen, flitting between imageboards and anime-watching? Or do you prefer to engange in more physical hobbies?

You coming back to it shows some semblance of tenacity along with the fact that there must be some incentive to you doing this. Focus on that incentive. And if you consider drawing as a hobby or a profression, technically, you are an artist. The fact of the matter is, are you a good, skilled artist, or a bad one? Like everything else in life, if you want to get better, you have to keep pushing forward.

And, regarding you lack of ability to write, I'd reccommend reading some literature. Everyone boosts their vocabulary through reading things, and you may find yourself able to articulate yourself better if you engaged in some of your time in a book. I personally recommend reading some classical literary fiction. Something like War and Peace, and maybe Don Quixote. I don't like contemporary fiction as much, but some reccomendations I have include books like A Confederacy of Dunces, Lord of the Rings, etc. etc. Here's a guide from 4chad /lit/ too if you'd like.

Really, read just about anything and you'll soon find yourself to be more expressive about your thoughts. And really reflect on what you read to. Don't go skimming through things.
>> No. 36783 [Edit]
I don't know why I never liked literature too much.
I can read a lot, as long as it's not fiction.
But to read a novel requires me to have a particular interest in what that novel talks about. I have read Hess, Sartre, Proust, the classics, mostly bored me to death or didn't interest me enough at best. I end thinking I could be reading a non-fiction book about real things instead. I think it's a lack of interest in the medium for what it is, while I can take comics or movies and appreciate them in a deeper level.

I think I will try to draw soon, your post helped me to decide, really.

McCandless seemed to me like a city kid that didn't know what he was doing and ended dead as a result.
Living isolated in a cabin in the woods while being prepared and having a town or stores relatively close is another thing. Ted Kaczynski lived like that for a long time and he barely needed a few dolars a year to survive, but he was really smart, prepared and trained. Living like that without the curse of working and human interaction is something I like to fantasize sometimes. But I lived my childhood like some sort of "involuntary" hermit and I can say it was extremely boring and I was envious of other kids. Living in a comfortable isolated place with electricity, internet and anything you need would be another thing, but you need to be rich for something like that. About cutting with the social obligations and stuff, isn't that what I already do? I work to get money, but besides that I pretty much live the same way.

What interested me about him was, from what I read, his potential to be a "successful person", which he willingly gave up in favor of seclusion. He wasn't a person who wouldn't fit into society even if he wanted to or had ideological reasons for his alienation like Ted. Ted Kaczynski seems like an asshole to me since he killed others for the sake of advertising his manifesto. He actively tried to get other people to follow his ideology too, so he didn't really disconnect from society emotionally.

McCandless was kind of an over-confident idiot, but he didn't die right away despite his lack of experience and willful ignorance, which is impressive in its own way.

I'm curious what you think of the whole subbing situation nowadays? I know fansubbing is pretty much dead but some botched translation has brought back the scene (GJM is the most prominent one coming to mind at the moment) to an extent. This was the first time in a while I saw drama about localized subs (I'm not gonna bother going into it, it was dumb) and the subber justified it by calling people complaining weebs and a whole shitshow about it. (shitflinging about nationality and politics, standard dumb flame war shit). I talked to someone who speaks Japanese and apparent Horriblesubs is fine for what they are, and if that's to be believed, I appreciate them for bypassing all the dumb "artistic" shit and TL notes, for forgoing all the drama involving subtitles and generally being good enough. I just realized though, most anime viewers are basically taking the meaning of the media with someone else's word. I wonder how often translators are deceptive and "liberally" interpret things, which eventually becomes direct influence over what the characters are saying or straight up guesses for whatever reason. I imagine people with no connection to Japan besides being wapanese wouldn't be able to speak it enough to even tell.
I'm quite curious to learn Japanese now and see how much changes.
What do you think?

Detecting people of the tribe is my super power. This ability was gifted to me for a reason and it was meant to be shared. Why, not using it to expose the works of the tribesmen would be simply immoral.

And what do the subbers and dubbers who do that have in common? Perhaps... strikingly well developed nasal structures?

Well they symptom of a disease is the same for all so the cure according to the homeopathic method would be the same. The problem with individualised treatment is that it could lead to the treater cycling through different treatments until one works and saying that was due to the individual nature of it when it was actually some other ingredient in the treatment that benefited the patient but had no bearing on homeopathy.

The individual nature of the treatment itself would also have positive effects on the patient, the feeling that the patient is being treated individually and the attention the patient will get are beneficial to the patient, studies have shown this as well.
>> No. 38153 [Edit]
Well belief in homeopathy would be equivalent to belief in the fact that some sort of extra-material "energetic/etheric" component of the body exists (see also >>/tat/1262) [since if you assume that, then the assumption that it can be manipulated by water that's been shaken (and stirred?) which presumably also has some sort of "energetic" component isn't too far of a leap].

>so where the fuck do we draw the line
Since you're dealing with extra-material phenomenon, it's in the same class of things as "paranormal" or "magick". Some people swear it's real and that they've experienced it themselves, attempts to reliably replicate it fail, it doesn't have any purely material explanations, etc. But the interesting thing about homeopathy is that with a properly designed large-enough trial it should be possible to actually see an effect (or lack of effect). As I've mentioned before almost all the trials performed so far are on non-individualized treatments which isn't the issue at hand, and the few trials on individualized treatment have all had methodological issues, casting their conclusions of it being more effective than placebo as questionable.

>symptom of a disease is the same for all
I think "individualized homeopathy" doesn't consider only the physical symptoms but also the entire emotional/mental characteristics of the person, closer to a psychiatric evaluation. And a lot of issues such as RSI don't all manifest in the same symptoms (nor do they even have defined physical causes).

But yes applying the notion of homeopathy to acute physical illnesses (e.g. infections, cancer, etc.) is asinine (at best it does nothing since mild infections go away on their own; at worst you've killed the patient). And if there is indeed any value

My grotesque blister finally popped around midnight, but cleaning it while moderating my cat's curiosity was quite the challenge.
Tangentially related, it's a shame night's reign isn't longer as my productivity is significantly higher when the sun is sleeping. Even as a NEET with relatively few distractions, merely the comfort derived from knowing that nobody will try to interact with you is like a warm blanket warding off the Winter's gelid embrace.
