Seisatsu has promoted hate speech on the internet for over a decade and and continues to do so, yet when his efforts bear fruit in the form of terrorism nobody hold him responsible.
Does anyone else think thats odd?
If people on the internet were saying Seisatsu should be shot and then someone did it, the people who were saying to do so on the internet would be considered partly responsible, so why is it different when Seisatsu promotes terrorism and then others suffer while he benefits?

What are the best (FREE) language learning services available on the Internet? Couple of my relatives speak Korean and I was wondering my options so I could actually talk to them. And yes, I'm trying Duolingo as I speak. Doesn't look great.

A torrent client and a keyboard. I've found most web-based resources to be rather lackluster for anything that isn't English or Japanese, and YouTube videos are a rabbit hole. Russian resources, for example, were very lacking. I haven't heard good stuff about Duolingo and it just looks and sounds like a procrastinator's dream. With most languages, you should in general learn the script/alphabet (if applicable), get a grammar sheet or two, and learn some vocabulary and get ready to try and contextualize stuff. Try buying a (reputable) college book on Korean or pirating it like everyone is supposed to. I don't know much about Korean, so take this with a grain of salt, but this seems to be the most reputable beginner level resource:
http://www.amazon.com/Integrated-Korean-Beginning-Textbooks-Language/dp/0824834402/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1260972037&sr=8-1

I already know the alphabet; Korean is known for the easy alphabet and hard as hell grammar. Anyways, thank you! The book you found looks like a good find, positive reviews and cheap compared to other highly rated books I found. Good looking suggested books too. I'm probably going to pool resources for a college book, pirating's never been my thing even though I have no fucking money.

 No.19856

Good chance you already heard of several or all of these, but…

Lingodeer is a bit better app than Duolingo. More structure, teaches words in context and grammar right away.
If you already know a lot of words and grammar u can use Naver dictionary to learn more. Naver has a whole subsection of their website dedicated to foreign speakers and learners.
HiNative is made by the people who made Lang-8, it's an app where you can ask natives questions but again, assumes you know at least some basic shit. Speaking of Lang-8, they stopped new signups but if you just happen to have one from a while ago it could be useful.
Youtube and web Talk To Me in Korean. I haven't used it because I'm lazy and stubborn but they have free courses, native speakers, and free Youtube videos on all sorts of subjects. I heard people say they got very far with them but IDK about quality, sorry. Just throwing things at the wall here.


Or make a new (separate) Twitter account and post in Korean and ask questions while posting about daily life or your interests. I'm only in the super beginning phases of Korean, so I'm not much help beyond this, but I really see this as a good step since it kinda forces you to practice.

Make some Korean friends somehow. Whatever you do, at least try to be genuine with them in terms of friendship. If you just want a language partner I'm sure you could find one by asking around.

I have heard that written and spoken Korean can be very different, so keep that in mind if you didn't know that already.

Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Learn from them. Mistakes will be funny and you'll laugh at them later on down the line. Oh no, that's generic language learning advice…

I think we definitely perceive it faster in this day and era. Information is more readily available, and each year seems like a bunch of highs and lows marked by an insane number of publicized (non-personal) events. Where as the media portrayal of previous decades pre-00s have been rather consistent, there seems to be no big collective thought about what the 00s and 10s were. You might remember the 00s as the last gasp of media moguls, MTV, Nirvana ripoffs/emo projects, and the popularization of the Internet, but that's by large doing it a disservice, and someone else probably remembers it for something different. Information overload and analysis paralysis has struck every corner, and who knows what other big news might be in the other end of the spectrum. For that matter, we still seem to be stuck on the same time loop. People still call back to the 80s even though people that lived through the 80s as a child/teenager are probably in their 50s-60s now. Retrofuturism and faux-nostalgia is more popular than ever. On the other hand, I've spotted people on the Internet who are already nostalgic about the 10s, and it's fucking weird. Nostalgia usually hits you on stuff that happened some ~15 years ago.
I think we soon may be hitting a big temporal gap or schizophrenia of sorts in the future. Like the Mandela Effect but at large. For one small example, remember YouTube annotations? Remember Flash? I'm already unsure as to what annotations certain videos had. And most Flash content in this day and age is by and large gone outside of survival bias. Nobody is invalidated, and nobody is right.

On the side, a worrying trend I've spotted that's been picking up traction in the mainstream sphere of the Internet are so called "internet historians" who recite shit from KYM/ED, do some two minute search on web archive, and just overall reek of faggotry and do History majors a big disservice. It's the beauty of the internetz, you can lie and get away with it. And maybe in the future we'll recall a lie too.

I'm not sure to what extent it has affected my perception of the real world, but in regards to online acquaintances and events, it feels as if it all simply pauses when I'm not there. I'll talk to some online buddy or group chat, leave for 2 weeks and return as if nothing happened, and then be surprised at them lamenting my absence because it feels like I was just there a moment ago. With running online trends and the like too, I just can't bring myself to give a shit about staying relevant, so when I finally get to it, everything feels like it just happens in huge bursts. I suppose this is why slower image boards like this suit me more.

Interesting perspective. I know a person who is seemingly nostalgic for 2016 for whatever reason. Also note that your view of these eras and generations might be a bit americentric and doesn't necessarily apply to the population outside your sphere, even considering how globalized culture has become. The 90s, for example (though you didn't directly mention them), being a golden childhood era is a pretty consistent meme on the internet, but meanwhile my own country was war-torn and fucked during most of this period.

I mostly meant the comments by >>14550 but also some others

> if you want to learn japanese just to enjoy media, you're wasting your time


There's a lot of japanese media that doesn't have translations and is interesting. Even ones with translations can be more engaging without a translation. For example, not having to read subs all the time, you can look away and not miss some important dialogue. There are a tonne of websites in Japanese that either have no English equivalent or offer a different perspective.

>don't even waste your time learning how to write stuff. There are hardly any chances you will ever use written japanese in your life, ever


I can agree with this but, mainly in regards to kanji, writing can be helpful. Learning to write makes looking up kanji easier than using Jisho's (or some other dictionary) feature to build the kanji from radicals. It's just faster to write it. It can also help differentiate similar kanji that may differ by one stroke or something. 石 and 右 for example or 人 and 入. In the beginning, it can be confusing and thanks to misreading some kanji, you may not even understand what's happening anymore and have to reread several times.

>my approach this time will be to post simple sentences and you guys try translating them


Waste of time. You shouldn't practise translating but instead practise understanding, they're different skills. If you want to translate texts as a goal then sure go ahead but in terms of learning, it's a hindrance if you train yourself to go from Japanese to English.

What I meant by this is that if you want to learn japanese just because you want to jerk off to untranslated loli, it's not worth it. Learning asian languages takes a lot of time, effort and patience, and if your interests are shallow then you should invest that time on something more productive.

>石 and 右 for example or 人 and 入. In the beginning, it can be confusing and thanks to misreading some kanji, you may not even understand what's happening anymore and have to reread several times.


You can learn that stuff without ever having written any kanji. Radicals are actually fairly easy to memorize if you really need to look up how to write that kanji that you always forget how to write, but actually practicing; hours of learning how to write a language that you aren't likely at all to ever use for real, is just not worth it.
Don't get me wrong, I actually learned how to write kanji because I like shodo and it's pretty much a must, but if your interests lies on watching anime without subs, reading manga or chatting with japanese people, it takes a lot of time and energy to learn those things that you aren't really going to use, ever.

>Waste of time.

>You can master a textbook but natural Japanese often has its own grammar that's not in most textbooks.
I totally agree with you that grinding textbooks alone is not the ultimate way to learn the language in any way. That's true but as I've already said I try approaching different methods as well. It's just I enjoy writing in Japanese by hand so much that I want to have a purpose to do so everyday. Besides, you can't possibly find something interesting to read/person to speak in Japanese every single day to practice (or you just don't have the mood or time to do so/decide what exactly you should do), but exercises are something that you can do everyday regardless of your situation. Because I often feel stuck with thoughts as "I want to practice but I'm not sure what should I do today…" and I feel like textbooks might solve this problem. That's my opinion at least.

>For translating, you have to understand

While that's true, I feel like while reading/speaking non-native language your brain kind of switches to it and you just go with a flow without thinking about how can you translate what you hear to the language you naturally know. Translating something might be a good practice but I understand what anon meant by calling it waste of time. After all understanding =/= translating 'cause while translating you're kind of forced to mostly retell everything with the tools of your native language rather than actually translate what original text meant word by word ('cause everything will sound shitty and unnatural if you do just that). So if you're not into playing with words and diving deeper in your own language than you usually need I understand why you'll consider translating something a waste of time.

>I actually learned how to write kanji because I like shodo and it's pretty much a must

I've also learned how to write kanjis, but mostly because I've found it extremely relaxing thing to do. Like, you turn off your brain and just draw the strokes while imagining short stories about the meaning of kanji.

Recently, I took the Enneagram test. I'm either a type 8, type 4, or type 6. Also either a 8w7 or 8w9. This doesn't surprise me much since it fits my experience with every other personality test. I don't neatly fit into one category and the way I act and think dramatically shifts depending on the circumstances. Frankly, I think Meyer-Briggs is obsolete bullshit unsubstantiated by modern reseach. People who take it too seriously come off as pretentious and simple-minded to me and on forums it's like they actively try to fit the stereotype. I think it appeals to people who don't have anything real going for them. The missing piece is taking into account how people's personalities naturally shift. The brain is remarkably complex, but what we perceive as personality is basically an illusion.

Anyway, I thought about how you could make a better test and came up with some ideas. Aside from testing for general behavioral tendencies like extraversion and introversion, I think there should be sub-catergories depending on other factors:

How you interact with people you see as socially and emotionally above, equal and below you. By socially above, I mean like societal position. A boss or parent or teacher is above you. Emotionally above is somebody you actually respect and look up to. A boss you think is an asshole or idiot is somebody you see as socially above you, but emotionally below you, etc.

How you deal with your own and others social/emotional challenges.
How you deal with your own and others social/emotional desires.

All of the questions will also take into account whether you feel content or discontent(sadness/anger) socially/emotionally. Depending on everything, your results would also include stable/unstable and successful/unsuccessful.

Overly positive descriptions give people a warped sense of self-perception. Taking into account whether a person is well adjusted or not would give more accurate results. I think this whole thing could only be accomplished by asking about complex scenarios and including some more personal questions.

Don't really care for personality tests as I don't see any value in them but took the test you linked anyway. Like the other anon on this thread I also received 5w6. Apparently I have a type 1 personality and the description somewhat seems to describe the type of person I have been the past few years.

Your ideas to include questions pertaining to how a person treats people of different social ranks is interesting and probably would result in more effective tests.

However, the main issue I see with personality tests are related to the actual method of gaining answers; from the person themselves. If a person is not good at introspection or is highly emotional the day they fill in the test, the results will be inaccurate. Having other people fill in the test for you also seems to have similar issues.

Before we try to find better methods of testing we should ask what value the results of a personality test offer anyone. I struggle to find much value in assigning different personality 'types' to people. (Perhaps it could discover which couple combinations work best or which personality types tend to form friendships with one another).
