A distant relative just died and for whatever reason you inherit their private island and the boat to get there. Only you know about this besides the guy that informed you. What do you do?

 No.19496

That's my dream. I've actually looked into buying islands but most near me are uninhabitable or you'd have to build your own house and that would be incredibly expensive.

I'd immediately move onto the island and start an online business so I don't have to go back to the mainland, maybe I could grow something to sell. I'd adopt a pack of dogs because I'd have the space for them, plus I'd feel safe at night knowing I'm surrounded by good boys. I'd use the boat to go back to the mainland and buy supplies every now and then. I'd grow lots of tropical fruits. Depending on how big the island is, I might build another little house on the beach and I'd go for little hikes with a packed lunch and flask. I'd probably get into painting on the beach or writing novels to both pass the time and make money. It's my absolute ideal situation.

You realise that prices for even the cheapest islands are in the order of millions? If you can't afford to build a house then you can't afford to buy an island.

 No.19501

>>19497
Uh, maybe where you live. I could get one for 100k. The house would be triple that or more. So yeah, the house would cost more than the island itself.

Shit guys I'm going to kyoto in the summer for 6 weeks and I can't wait! I love Japan and everything about since I've been in highschool and I can't believe that all my hardwork has paid off! I know this isn't necessarily yn related by I just really wanted to share this with you guys. Has Yume Nikki ever shaped your perception on Japan? I don't what it is about stuff like yn or lsd dream emulator but that just gives me that "magic" feeling that I love so much and I'm wondering if I will get that when I am over there.

Ubuu, I need your advice, preferably female. I know there's probably some other place better for this kind of thing, but I basically haven't used the internet other than to lurk on chans, science and programming, some indie game development blogs and the dark side of the japanese web for about 9 years. In other words, this is basically the only place where I even post, and I wouldn't even know about other place where I could write it. Really, you guys are the only people I feel comfortable with to talk about this. It's going to be slightly long so, please, forgive me in advance.

Long story short, I've started college some time ago. I was your typical anon, that is to say, my idea of social skills was very poor, I am a knee-deep weeaboo and I was a loner kid through my adolescence. Luckily, I haven't got any problem with just talking with people, but I do have a real problem on long-term relationships of any sort. How people could maintain contact, go out and share meals and whatever, hell, talk daily was a slightly odd idea for me, mainly because I've never made acquittance with people who would be interested in talking with me that much; the concept has been always slightly alien to me. It just seemed weird, if I had to go out I felt I wouldn't know how to react, engulfed by a feeling of being lost – out of place, as my surroundings would become blurry and I would just sit there with the head low and muted. That's the kind of impression I always got of "going out" with people – and on the very title occasions this happened, it was like that (mostly before college).
Some time forward, about a year after starting college, I managed to start talking with people and forming some basic "contact" – that is to say, we knew each other names and we got together to study – sort of relationship with a bunch of guys I met there, which later grew into what you could call friendship (or at least I believe so, as I said, I suck at judging these things, but I'm fairly sure you can call it that). We shared similar interests so that made it easier for me to relax and actually be a bit of myself with nerd jokes among other things, which increased my self-esteem to talk with other people in other classes too, even of normal things I wouldn't normally care to discuss that much. Mostly out of courtesy, but overall they weren't boring people, and I was also interested in how far I could go handling it (which thankfully, went all right in thePost too long.

everyone goes through that same social discomfort but you somehow seem to feel entitled to avoid it. what makes you better than the rest of us princess?
its somewhat telling, the fact the it takes the protection of an anonymous imageboard for you to admit that you've isolated yourself out of fear that you might run into people who don't love absolutely everything about you the way that mommy does. gosh theres different people out there and they all don't keep pleasing and comforting you as their first priority at all times, how horrifying.

>everyone goes through that same social discomfort but you somehow seem to feel entitled to avoid it. what makes you better than the rest of us princess?
Care to explain exactly from where you've drawn this conclusion? I haven't mentioned not even once that I'm better than anyone else for being bad at being social nor that I feel discomfort for people who "don't love absolutely everything about you the way that mommy does", and if that's not enough, let me say it: I don't. People are fine the way the are, I am just broken on that aspect, but, well, I've sort of come to terms with it.

If I take the quote you made in your post as a reference, I hardly see the correlation between it and your analysis. Is it the "mainly because I've never made acquaintance with people who would be interested in talking with me that much"? Because what I meant is that I've never been able to form a relationship with people because there never was a person who spoke with me outside of casual chat, or seemed interested in developing a relationship with me, and how that always seemed alien to me because I've never had the chance to actually participate in any of that, and how even now I feel out of place regarding these social events, because I've come to see them as something that happens to other people and can't shake the feeling I'm not doing something natural. Are you telling me that you connect instantly with every person you see on the street and you have the potential to develop a full relationship with a complete stranger regardless of anything, and I'm just stupid for not being able to do so? For the record, I mean people who don't share any interest at all with you. I hardly see why this makes me entitled for avoiding something that never had the chance of blooming.

>the fact the it takes the protection of an anonymous imageboard for you to admit that you've isolated yourself out of fear

???
I am not scared of relationships, I'm just not used to them, I'm just socially inept. As I've said in the second post, I'm slowly developing a small social circle, and I'm fine with it, except for the low self-steem problems about feeling out of place. I fail to see how you see an obvious case of inferiority complex as me being entitled.

Are you implying that people are somehow obligated to form close relationships? If so, why? I myself don't feel like putting in the amount of energy needed. I don't see it as worth the investment considering how people lose interest in you fast if you don't work to entertain them and make them feel good. That's just our nature. How does that make me selfish or aloof? How does that hurt anybody? You're just projecting things onto people because you can't wrap your head around the idea of a person who's genuinely not that interested in and compatible with other people. It feels like you're compensating for your own insecurities. Where'd you even come from?

Has anyone else here heard of the Voynich Manuscript? It's a book from centuries ago full of strange plant drawings and untranslatable text. People have been trying to figure it out for hundreds of years. There's like ten plus documentaries about it. Recently, a guy figured out that it's probably in short-hand Latin or something like that. A bootleg health book copy. What's interesting to me is how similar its aesthetic is to YN's in some ways.

Actually, whether that theory hold up or not isn't clear, but there's a good chance that it doesn't. AI has even been used to try to examine it, which just created even more questions. The latest theory is that it's partially Turkish. The only thing people mostly agree on is that it has something to do with women's health.
Some of the mystery of the books has to do with it's strange pictures of plants known and unknown and bizarre parts that look animated when you spin the the thing around. You can read it here.

I recently read that some linguistic AI found it follows the same patterns as Yiddish. But nothing translatable. My guess is that it's in a shorthand cypher of some obscure language, and we'd need to delve deeper into its origins to get a better starting point to work from.

Don't know how possible that is. Lots of history is completely lost and there probably wont ever be a way of recovering that information. If anything, information fades with time. It's interesting to think though that in thirty years people will still be able to read this thread. Stuff like this manuscript is fascinating partially because it reminds me both of how similar and different people from the past are to people now.

Have you ever wondered of rooster onomatopoeia? Because the English version of rooster crow is so utterly fake! Just compare the audio of crowing rooster https://freesound.org/people/Sclolex/sounds/324210/ and the "cock-a-doodle-doo". Neither English "cock-a-doodle-doo", nor German 'kikeriki' or Russian /kukarʲe'ku:/ manages to achieve the faintest semblance of rooster crow. The only language I've found that does at least the rhythm(prosody?) right is Turkish: ü-ürü-üüü /yʔyryʔyː/.
I believe that the most appropriate approximation would be ugh'q'ghyrr-lurh /ʔʌɦʔqəʔ'ɦy:rlʌə:h/ (all vowels glottal).
And what spelling would you suggest?
And why do Indo-European languages(And not only those: Japanese roosters go kokekokkō.) fail to convey actual rooster crows so badly? Any guesses?

Languages are limited by the types of syllables within them. There is no use for people to be able to make the same noises as a rooster. You take what you already have and make an approximation.

 No.19141

People already change the pronunciation of loan words from human languages enough. You're expecting too much of them.

Now explain to me, why the hell does something like "kre-kre" or "ケロケロ" (kerokero) become "ribbit" in English?
