It's halloween season again.
When I was a kid I used to scour around my school for a pumpkin a couple days before the 31st. Then i'd come up with some kind of plan and steal it without anybody noticing. After i'd carve a pattern in it at home and stick a candle inside. Didn't even put it outside. I just kept it in my kitchen and checked on it all the way through the night until it flickered out finally. Now a days I just buy one. What kind of tradtions do you have?

Also, this year i'm looking for a physiological horror movie to watch instead. I'm hopng people here can suggest something that's not entry level like The Shining.

Op here. I decided on watching Akira since I never got around to it before and it seems close enough to horror. Happy Halloween.


My neighborhood is always totally deserted outside. It's like a ghost town compared to developments. I don't think even one person took from the basket I put outside…

I finished it. Akira might be the best action film ever made. I'd say its sort of like The Matrix, in that its very high-concept, except its better in every way. It's action and visuals are more interesting and impressive, and it doesn't water-down its concepts to be more accessible. Akira gets praise more for its merit, while the Matrix is praised because it's different and dares to make the audience think in an environment of total schlock. The Matrix is also somewhat(very) unoriginal and derivative. Even from a character standpoint, Akira is superior. Despite having a large cast and having little time spent just talking, even supporting characters are more fleshed out and compelling than Neo or Trinity or Morpheus(Cipher's not bad actually). The few talking scenes were poignant and moved the plot along in some way, while the Matrix indulged in longish, repetitive speeches that only served as exposition dumps or to indulge itself despite being in a visual media and having other options for communicating information. Akira came out more than ten years before too. The Matrix being far better remembered in the public conscious is a poor sign to me.

I liked the Matrix when I first saw it and that was only last year, so nostalgia didn't play any part in that enjoyment, but it didn't even come close to blowing me away enough to make me write word vomit like this.


I'd also say Akira says a lot more about people, the way they perceive each other, and their relationship with authority and the government than the Matrix, which just alludes to the idea that what authorities tell people could be deceptive, and most people just extrapolate that the movie implied the government lies about so and so or just everything for nefarious purposes. The Matrix's 'best' theme of what reality actually means and whether it matters or not is hardly explored in a meaningful way(impacts characters and story). Again, most of the laundry list is only briefly touched on in some characters conversation. That's why Cipher and Anent Smith are the best characters and could potentially make for more compelling protagonists than what we got with the whole chosen one crap.

In the past I have been diagnosed with general anxiety disorder and more specifically social anxiety disorder.
It was so bad I couldn't even look people in the eye and I would start shaking whenever I feel like I am looked at, I would run out of classrooms at university because of anxiety attacks.
I can't remember what I was on back at the time.

I have now started a new course ( which basically guranatees a job ) and it's back. It's more under control because I am more mature and have learned to breathe, try to calm myself and distract myself but it still doesn't let me function as a human being. ( + )

I am too poor to afford therapy but my cousin works as a nurse. I have access to: paroxetine, citalopram, sertraline, venlafaxine, regabalin, tradozone and alprazolam.

( + ) I'm currently anticipating social situations and taking 0.50 of xanax ahead with like half or 3 quarters of an hour but this will not last me long because I'm developing resilience to the drug ( I used to take 0.25 ).

I exercise using the bodyweight fitness app whenever I can. I do not drink coffee, alcohol or energy drinks. I used to drink tea but at some point I realised black tea unsettles me and I kind of stopped.

My concerns are anhedonia and gaining weight because this happened last time.
I plan on informing myself for a few weeks first and I am seeking help.
If you can and want please share this post to communities which you think might me knowledgeable.

Hopefully the right place to put this, but looking for a couple people to help play-test an upcoming game.

Best way I can describe it as a cross between LSD and Dreaming Mary. It all seems very randomy but does have an overarching horror element exposed late-game that ties it together. Very heavy exploration based with levels that change themselves as you progress.

Does require a decent gaming rig, and fully supports local CO-OP. The game is finished besides any last minute bug-fixes or additional hints as needed.

I've noticed a very disturbing trend going on online. There seems to be a split where everywhere you go it's either a shitpost hellscape where everybody constantly bitches about Jews 24/7, or a hyper safe space full overly sensitive communists and tumblrinas. The vitriol is just so insufferable. I'm Jewish and i'm definitely not swimming in money, nor are my relatives, but I have to sit and read about how Jews are destroying the world and cause every problem in pretty much any place I go. It doesn't even make sense. Would lobbying be okay if only white people did it? Nobody acknowledges that Jews are just as much brainwashed as everybody else by modern political correctness and liberalism. Nope, Jews just want to take over the world and use everybody else as slaves. The Talmud says so and Harvey Weinstein types definitely have a copy of the Talmud on their night stand. That's why so many powerful positions of power are Jews. It's all a zionist conspiracy. Also they're actually marxists which is why they like business and banking so much. If that's the case, where's my cut? It's like stormfront is slowly leaking everywhere else. You can't even escape it on music boards. Nobody talks about music there, it's all just /pol/shit.
The only other option is in many ways worse. You constantly have to walk on eggshells and be mindful of everybody's sensibilities. This is the problem with ideology. It infects everything it touches and slowly wrings it to death. It's suffocating. The infected have their head so far up their own ass and they think they're the objective moral authority. They're the saviors and everybody else is wrong and needs to be silenced.
Is this just going to be how things are from now on? Is there any hope of things cooling down and becoming neutral again?

>However I prefer to be a rational person. I can't make myself believe something if it sounds good, but doesn't make logical sense when you break it down.

everybody thinks that they're logical and won't believe things that they can't understand.
saturn has two moons which occupy the same orbit, the could collide but never do, one moons is always traveling faster than the other, but neither moon ever overtakes and passes the other.
that sounds illogical if you haven't had orbital mechanics explained to you, but that how it works.
don't award yourself so much credit for being rational, if you're a headstrong egotistical moron then your mental condition will leave you oblivious to your own idiocy, you might be a braying ninny and not even know it. a lot of stupid people and a lot of irrationally insane people are very certain about themselves, is that the kind of people you want to affiliate yourself with?

>Morality varies depending on the person and place, but everybody thinks they're right about it.
this is extremely true


They never said they were totally sure of themselves, just that they don't believe everything presented to them right away. People should at least make an effort to be rational, even if that can't be absolute or whatever.


File: 1537055427657.jpg (84.39 KB, 650x575, 69-11.jpg)

Your own rationality is a myth that you create and only you believe in. Your version of rational behavior is based on the seemingly logical conclusions you've drawn from your experiences in life, but other people have difference experiences and different brains and they draw different conclusions. Its the most common thing in the world for some oblivious narcissistic retard to be dismissive of anyone who contradicts their point of view as irrational or crazy.
How the fuck is it rational to be spending your time posting off-topic posts in a derailed thread on the off topic imageboard of a website modeled after an east asian archipelagic animation discussion software that was started by an ex 4chon mod? What are you accomplishing here by telling two or three other people that people other than yourself are rational? Would it make a difference in any way at all if we were arguing the merits of our post numbers or making inane penis jokes instead of trying to accuse other of being mentally inferior to yourself?


Except that's not how logic works. Everything depends on context. There's no such thing as a universal logic or moral system that applies to every situation. Being rational doesn't mean basing everything on personal experience alone and saying everybody else is wrong. That's exactly what ideologues do. It means looking at the facts and analyzing the situation on a case-by-case basis. It's a mindset. You wont always end up being right, but it's still better and allows you to learn from mistakes. You're implying that nothing is irrational in any situation. As for why i'm posting on this board, within the context of me having zero free time becuase I have to study for an exam, it wouldn't be rational. If I have free time, it is because it makes more sense to do things you enjoy then.
Your perception of being a reasonable person tells me that you're probably not one. Wouldn't be suprised if you only think what other people tell you to. All of your posts so far have just been of you being a standoffish faggot.

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?


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'd have to build your own house and that would be incredibly expensive
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.


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.


Sell it.


>Only you know about this
Okay, well, this scenario didn't happen then. Because governments keep track of things like this.

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.


on the graph question i just partially posted, is the x-xais is standard deviations, if so how big was the population and how well does that curve fit the observed data?

>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?
