I think making a lain based board is stupid because lain isn't pure cyberpunk in the least, but rather a surreal mix of different themes with some tints of cyberpunk. If you wanted real cyberpunk, you'd better use something else more solid altogether (even cuties like alice). Instead, all this lain propaganda (i.e. posters, shitty gimp edits, etc) seems like they were made with the intention of using her image because it's easy to relate her as an overpowered entity on the wired (and thus in the internet and anything related to it) while at the same time giving her a personality that most fucking weebs like us can get off with. Imagine if lain was a 200 pound 1337 hacker, would it be as appealing? I think not, they'd probably be using Mokoto as P2501.

You really don't need to go that far into the future to find hell… have you ever seen any gore thread? The human body is extremely fragile, and you don't really require sophisticated technology to harm or destroy it, just like a rat. And that thing happens in the real world, in this age, right now; and has been happening ever since who-knows-when. But just because we discovered metals it doesn't mean they are bad; after all we're enjoying our lives thanks to that discovery and the benefits that came with it, even if a knife can behead a man and bullets kill thousand of people. However, the same metal gave us protection in the form of armors in the past, and different materials work against bullets now too. It's all about who uses what in what way. So I wouldn't worry about technology, I'd worry about who possesses that technology and how we can defend against it's potential threats, just as we dealt with metal weapons with engineering against them.

LSD doesn't make you see things not existing. It makes you see things already there differently. Now imagine evolution took a different route, our perception of the world on LSD could have been a normal perception. The one we perceive now would be the strange one. Its no less real or more real.

I've been reconsidering my life. They always tell you that as you grow up things get easier since you mature and bloom into a normal human being… but I've been pondering whether people only pretend to have their lives in control only to not lose their shit about it. I mean, yeah, I don't think everybody hates their lives, but I'm sure everybody gets chocked by the pressure once in a while. The question is, what happens when your life is constant chocking? Or rather, can you go on with your live as you're chocked every second? Some years ago I remember looking at people and feeling completely distant, and knowing that one day I'd merge with the multitude. Now that it's happening, I almost can feel my old self there looking at me from outside the crowd. It's been pretty surreal. My life isn't bad in on itself, but I feel I can't fit, and no matter what I do it's never enough. I don't know, I've had this idea that I'm broken somehow, and it's been my justification for so long. If I can't be fixed, why bother?

The nature of social animals is that they rely on each other for a sort of reassurance, a meaning. This need exists to keep them tied to one another.

Well, just like our need to mate has blossomed into something that can contain deep feelings, and just like we've gone from eating apples and liking it because sugar tastes good to us because apples are good FOR us to abusing that fact by artificially producing shitloads of sugar alone, that fact has also become convoluted by the increase in our brain size.

The thing is, we're free as men to find whatever fucking meaning we want to. But the only meanings that seem to feel deep and fulfilling all have to do with contributing–to your own growth, to your nation, or just to people that look or think vaguely like you. The reason this is fulfilling beyond other things is still just because we're fucking wired to want to better our own tribe–that's why we care more about people that think and look like us, and always will, too, because on some level we think of them as our tribe–but anyway, we can choose any fucking reason to be that we want, but most people will still either choose what's on a cross or what's on a flag. Or did. And it was better when they did, because without some strong concept of a nation or a God to live up to, people just turn to worshiping fucking plastic. I was a lot stronger of an atheist before I noticed that people's substitute for God is still being a fucking slave, but just to trivial bullshit.

Anyway, have another truthbomb fags. The reason there are so many trannies (say, those whose idea of being female seems to literally boil down to a fetish), so suddenly, is a result of social adaption by failed males who recognize internally that they would never get any attention unless they pretended to be something they're clearly not.

Men have a natural level of sexual aggression. When it's bottled up totally, it grows harsher. And some of them self-inflict it out of desperation. So it goes from wanting to fuck the girl but not being able to, to resenting the girl, to wanting to be a cartoon version of a girl. All while being, generally, a gangly, unsightly, maybe slightly more effeminate version of the common hipster.

Basically, Maidnaut.

I think you're mixing two interesting concepts here.
To be honest, everything ever conceived by men at any time is pretty much a conception of men and nothing else. For some reason we seem to give special meaning to certain actions and beliefs, leading to the creation of gods, nationalism, romance value, need of supremacy, and everything else ever accepted by "the tribe". However, for that very reason, I think it's stupid to care of anything of that at all. Why would valuing a god or a nation be better than valuing plastic? They're both ultimately stupid. And here, my friend, is why it is important: It keeps us away from chaos. You've said it yourself; we do certain actions to be part of the tribe, accepted, and thus protected. Anybody who isn't part of us is to not be trusted. If you're not from us, you're an stranger. In the past this may have led to physical conflict, but nowadays it only isolates the stranger away, or he just gets abused by the tribe's member to show off.

Now, what happens when you are the stranger? How likely are you to survive/not be chased away?
The trick, my friend, is to learn how to build masks. Lying should become your first weapon, and manipulation your objective. People are manipulated by plastic, use that to your favor. You're alive already, and you may as well make things better for you. People with power manipulate others all the time, even nations, and nobody complains. Nothing is important and there is no meaning in anything at all, for that very reason you are free to choose whatever you want, because your existence is as empty of meaning as every single other one. Don't fight against the current, just get out of the water and walk upstreamward. The less junk you carry in your luggage, the faster you will go. And masks, my friend, are not heavy at all.

I remember as a child my wish for being a girl was jealously of how females seem to be treated so well, even my child self seemed to realize that humans can only care about what they see.

My asexual bias would say the reason people want to be a girl isn't purely sexual, though normies get brainwashed into becoming failed normies so easily, and inceldom is a fucking retarded concept in the first place, how does your purpose in life become mashing meat at each other? It's absurd.

>pretended to be something they're clearly not.

Here's a truthbomb for you my man, I can be whatever I want inside my head with my tulpa friends. Alternate reality.

How is your japanese going? Still suffering with kanji grinding? Dealing with grammar rules? Just starting out?
Ask anything, I'll probably be the only fagget answering but something is something.

I meant to do this thread weeks ago but I was lazy to prepare a resource list and stuff. Thankfully a lainanon posted this list on /cyb/ and since I agree with most of what it says I thought about posting it here.


Start here, read it all the way down, even if it says Advanced it still won't be enough for you to understand all everyday sentences correctly

Keep going with this

So while this thread was a failure a year ago, I decided to give it a try again since there seems to be users with an interest in learning japanese again this year. So, my approach this time will be to post simple sentences and you guys try translating them, then we see what errors are there and here and nuances and whatnot. I recommend to use rikaichan/zkanji/your favorite softare or dictionary if you can't read certain kanjis instead of pasting the line on google translate or similar. Bonus for translating the picture.

As the image reflected in the shattered mirror gradually faded into darkness, I softly closed my eyes and felt as if I'd become a little smaller.

I don't think it's worth me trying to translate that image without understanding the context for what exactly ライン引き is here. Programming? Drawing? Google brings up those things they use to draw white lines on sports fields.

Anyway, questions. Any tips for reading faster? I assume it's just a matter of reading more and making sure you're not slowly reading everything out voiced in your head.

Yes, you can't learn japanese.

>All of the blooming flowers makes spring my favorite season.

Although the meaning isn't really that away from what I wrote, I'm gonna clarifying just in case with the most literal translation. (In fact, lately I've been thinking wording like this is better than being more literal).
"The time when I'm surrounded by flowers is my favorite among the four seasons"

>If (I, you, etc.) walk around in the rain like that, you're definitely going to catch a cold.

In this context it's understood that the speaker isn't in first person and therefore the person listening is either you or someone else. In english you'd word this like "If you walk like that in the rain it's obvious you're gonna catch a cold!". You pick this up because the "と決まってるんでしょ。" is like saying "I TOLD YOU!", and the ん specifically is there emphasizing the "TOLD" part in the english equivalent. (Remember that の works both to make ask for an explanation and to explain things).

The rest are okay.

The image is from an omake floppy disk of a thing that was fairly common in the 90's (and is still today), namely drawing yourself drawing yourself. Can't remember of what game though. As far as I'm aware ライン引き is what you're describing.

I was translating it more into how I think it'd be worded in an english conversation rather than a straight blunt translation. There's so much more emphasis on context and interpretation in japanese that there ends up being quite a few ways you could translate something, though those options then narrow with more context.

>Depends on what you consider reading faster. Do you mean reading (as in, word for word inside your head) faster, or reading text faster (this may include just watching the kanji's shape and okurigana to get the tense if it's a verb, even if you don't word anything of this inside your head)?

Mostly the latter, because I'm almost completely certain the former is only a matter of reading more over time. I'm focusing on practicing more on skim reading from a combination of the shapes of the characters themselves, what context I have, general experience with japanese and specific experience with that piece of material in particular, ie. what a character is likely to say, what the author is likely to write.

Your reply there pretty much reinforced what I was thinking on this matter. I don't really have any difficulty with kanji anymore. Sometimes there's a new obscure or obsolete one I have to look up, and those are the only things I still bother adding to anki (as words when applicable), just because they can be a pain to actually look up sometimes.

>If it's the latter, that's how I read if I don't know how to pronounce kanji, it's a bit weird and probably not good but I know more meanings than readings.

I see this happen to japanese natives, too. I was watching a 実況 of Off and the translator used a bunch of obscure ones that were constantly tripping up the player.

>I recommend you to check "中上級者のため 速読日本語 Rapid Reading Japanese" by Miura Akira and Oka Mayumi, it comes with both english and japanese text, it was made to train this very thing. Note, though, that it's for advanced students (meaning you have to know already a good bunch of kanji by the time you read it).
