I dont remember the whole story for sure, Johnson was quite the eccentric personality, there's this channel for the weird entries in his dictionary: https://www.youtube.com/@AbsurdSamuelJohnson/

But it's probably a variant of the stone kicking story about him. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Appeal_to_the_stone So let me recite the completely accurate, historically verified dialogue of the event.

*Johnson enters the room*
Bishop Berkeley: Mind! Mind! Mind! Matter is silly.
Johnson: Fellas, what's this nonsense in here?
Bishop Berkeley: Subjective idealism my friend, so let's talk a bit more about God. Even better would be God's mind and how the existence of matter depends on how one perceives it!
Johnson: This is crazy! What the hell! I'm SO out!
*Johnson escapes in a swift manner*
Johnson: I'm so mad at idealists now! How could matter not be real? This cute kitty is not real either? Why can I do this then, huh?!
*Johnson manages to kick Hodge the famous fluffy kitty because it seemed like an actual argument in his MIND*
Johnson: Idealists are so pwned now!
*Berkeley giggles in the distance and is not pwned at all*
*Fluffy cat cries in cat*

How come the neat-o falling meme text sets my CPU on fire?
I used to run this old program
on a 66mhz pentium with no noticeable affect on performance back in the 1990s and it does pretty much the same thing as the falling text effect.


How old is your PC dude? My 10yo dual-core bitch can handle this site just fine. Then again, I use towers. If you're on a laptop, almost anything will cause a noticeable increase in fan RPM. Especially if it's an older one that hasn't had its fan cleaned in forever.

hi! uni autism anon with a writing piece here.
the autismbux are so so worth the pain of the process in my opinion. Everytime i check my account and see an extra couple hundred my heart sings. autism truly does win
I was mulling over this question a bit since i don’t know how much of my creative writing work done at uni I still like. I’ve found a short piece that should work though, this was a challenge my lecturer gave us to write a piece with little to no dialogue. Decided to use some of my own characters and really double down on repetition to make the atmosphere uneasy. I do have a .flow fanfic that’s a WIP that I’ve been thinking of posting to the writing board of this site, but I don’t know how many people I want to direct to my deeply embarrassing fan fiction account. But that’s besides the point.


To me the repetition of the girl in the wheelchair and the girl with the stitches feels like a similar effect to walking long stretches with those 3 second music loops in yume nikki. Uneasy but also… comforting? Part of that is down to the feeling of the descriptors themselves though, I wonder if you'd be able to achieve the feeling of wrongness with more innocuous images, like if you'd called them the girl with the lip gloss and the girl with the big ass or something. If you want to see something take this idea to the extreme then check out thomas ligotti's This Degenerate Little Town, this recording is good https://youtube.com/watch?v=FBca33v8oGM but it adds other sounds so if that's cheating there's a transliteration here https://ligotti.net/showthread.php?t=4597


(That wasn't a suggestion by the way I just meant I wonder if the same offness effect could be done with types of setting/character that don't have any inherent offness to them just by writing style)


Also I'd like to read the .flow fic if you ever feel like posting it, ok I'm done spamming now

My grandpa died a few months ago. He was a fairly prominent choreographer in the USSR. The last time I saw was when I still in a crib, so I have no memory of him. We don't speak the same language, so I also didn't get the chance to talk to him even once. I was sad about not being sad. My grandpa was very… eccentric. Since decades ago, both him and my grandmother obsessed about his health. Even while my mother was growing up, him and his physical well-being were always the top priority. Every time he so much as had a cough both of them would start worrying about it and go to the doctor. There's a saying that goes something like this: you shouldn't have a complicated relationship with your doctor. Well, he did. He at one point was a shoemakers apprentice, but after being drafted from some war he gave up on that. He actually left the draft by faking appendicitis. After that he decided to be a dancer, and he was pretty good. I'm nobody to judge him, but he wasn't what most would call a good person, and neither was his wife. For a while, my mother, her mother, her father and her aunt all lived in the same place, in some tiny shack. My mother and her parents shared a room. Sometimes, during winter nights, my grandmother would nag him incessantly for hours on end about absolutely nothing. He's eventually get so fed up that he would strangle her while she called for her sister to help. This didn't just happen once, and it was all in front of my mother. Normally my grandfather wasn't abusive or anything. He never harmed my mother. Other than those times nothing else would really happen to my knowledge. My grandfather was actually pretty cowardly. They eventually moved to an apartment closer to where everything was going on. One time, at night they heard a woman screaming outside and my grandfather was absolutely terrified. Pretty weirdly, when my grandmother shouted at the voice to go away it suddenly came to an abrupt stop. Pedophiles would try to lure my mother into their houses while she was walking to her home in that neighborhood sometimes. My mother had a half-sister on her father's side as my grandmother was his second wife. My grandparents, especially my grandmother, treated her awfully and that could best be described by one event. When my half-aunt's mother died, before the funeral her body was kept in my grandparent's apartment for some reason. No casket, no nothing. An exposed dead body. They forced my mother's sister to sleep in the same room asPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

My grandad was a really prominent doctor in my hometown in Siberia, a lot of the doctors there still remember him since they were his students, his portraits still hang on the walls of the city's main hospital.

He really liked money and was a serious capitalist even before the 90s, he would often sign up for risky jobs that paid a lot, like working in Soviet-occupied Afghanistan.

When I was 2 he took me and my parents to a third world country where he was offered a high-paying job as a foreign specialist and then he just passed away unexpectedly. My whole life was basically ruined right from the beginning because my idiot parents decided to remain there instead of going back to Russia or at least some first-world country.


>My whole life was basically ruined right from the beginning because my idiot parents decided to remain there instead of going back to Russia or at least some first-world country.
Those are some top-notch maternal instincts. Seriously though, that really sucks.


>my idiot parents decided to remain there instead of going back to Russia
In hindsight, not moving to Russia might not have been the worst choice after all.

No one actually likes to read, prove me wrong.

Or at least the vast majority of people won't read anything unless it's some popular thing like Harry Potter.

I don't blame them either, reading is boring and outdated when you can easily listen to more pratical forms of media to absorb information or have fun. Especially if we are talking about actual physical books, which literally have no reason to exist other than being an economical alternative to owning a computer.

The people I met who claim they love to read are usually annoying morons who just want to pose as smart or interesting people.

Prove me wrong. If you reply with "I like to read" your opinion is instantly invalid.

It doesn't matter if there are or not.


I like the freedom of imagination that books give compared to other mediums. It's not possible to capture the horror of Lovecraft ancient gods in a painting, a movie, or animation. It's something born from your very own fears as you picture that. The same applies to any other thing, which need not necessarily be related to horror.

Humans love stories. Books are just one of the most efficient mediums to build a story with great depth. It boils down to the efficiency of the author as a writer and how engaged you feel when reading their work. It's also a great way to practice language, or even old variations of your language. Being able to read things written over a thousand years ago in a country far away from yours gives a lot of insight into how things were back then. This is something that no other medium will ever give you fully, because there are many things lost in translation (in mediums and also to your modern language).

Yes, perhaps it's a minority, but there's definitely degenerates out there who enjoy it.


>Prove me wrong.
Nope, you have to prove yourself right. Onus of proof is on the accuser.


>Prove me wrong. If you reply with "I like to read" your opinion is instantly invalid.
Now you're just assuming the conclusion.


thats true, when i read its because it shows a topic or idea i enjoy, people who read for the sake of reading arent going to get much pleasure out of it

im halfway through my end of year, life defining exams and its so exhausting, especially since all of them are over 3 hours long (essay subjects)
i have three more to go, two this week. Just wanna ask, if anyone else here's been through that, how'd you all cope?
im personally going for the 'pretend its not as bad and distract myself constantly' method but i nearly threw up on the bus home and there's only so many times i can 100% psychonauts 2 before raz's voice becomes an integral part of my psyche

>if anyone else here's been through that, how'd you all cope?
dropping out

obviously can't offer any advice but good luck with your exams anon, i believe in you!


I'd sit down to cram through my essay, and every time my brain froze up and words stopped coming out for too long I would take a walk outside to refresh. I found it easiest to write essays in the early morning when I've just woke up.


i hope you did well op, but when i have to write essays i usually just get drunk and come up with a bunch of ideas then string it together later.
for math tests, i just binge study guides.
this combined with a bit of luck, gave me a 4.0 gpa

I really should not be here, this pc has become a glowing hotspot for some reason (i.e "friends" and "family"), Zuc doesn't want me to delete my meta account and google is fucking mad at me for some reason, also someone has become obsessed with me and does whatever is in its power to sabotage my efforts to live my life outside the machine, they literally had to take away my body just so they could delude themselves into believing that i can still feel fear after all the shit they have put me through. honestly i can't even enjoy my books because some subhumans that work printing books keep changing the words to include personal data of people i don't even know, this is a ridiculous psyop to try and make me into some kind of shooter i tell ya, also i am now working and having my own salary but i don't really enjoy buying anything nor saving money like i used to, i can't even enjoy food, work, study or anything else for that matter, i guess sexy women are still relevant for me somehow but i see in them nothing but sadness behind their glittery personas.


dude chill the fuck out man
