This is a thread for posting all the weird experiments that you think of. Here's one that I've been thinking about. A child(6-9) with few preconceived notions is given two pigs (that look similar) to raise. One as a pet, and the other as food. The way they are raised is different. The pet is kept healthy and lean while the food is fattened up. The pet has a collar with a p on it, and the food has a collar with an s on it(this part is just an arbitrary way to distinguish them from the start so it could be anything). After the pigs are fully matured, the child watches the pig raised for food be slaughtered and then eats it. What do you think their general impression of pigs would be after? (I know it's a bit messed up, but it's just pretend).

I think as long as they knew that this pig was food from the beginning he wouldn't care. Kids learn what is right from their enviroments, so if false seperations - e.g. "That's not a pig, that's pork", "that's not a girl, that's my sister", "I'm not like them, I won't die" etcetera - are forged early then they stay (on an emotional level rather than a logical one).

Read the rules. You can argue with someone at will but if you drift too far into insults, general rudeness, arguing for the sake of arguing and summerfaggotry you'll generally get the end of the hammer.
Also, please don't steer this thread into some meta offtopic talk, go to /sugg/ if you have complaints that Pretzel is a nazi.

Any anon in the middle of a video-game addiction? How does one cure it? Recently, there have been many moments where I dose off and feel the need to play a video-game just for the sake of playing something and those moments tend to be hard to resist and the rest of the day is wasted because of it. I had gotten started by uninstalling most games off of my computer, smartphone and Switch and will try my best to keep myself occupied with other work, however I do not feel that this is enough. Any suggestions?

I was just really bored some random night in September 2016 and decided to go on tvtropes (don't blame me).
I randomly found Yume Nikki, played it, i thought it was too eerie for me and i felt like it was hurting my head and i dropped it. (probably because i was sick at the time)

I also found .flow via tvtropes soon after, installed it and looking at the main character design, the ruined look of her apartment, i decided that i would try and finish it.

After finishing it last month, i was looking up .flow on the internet and i found this lovely place.

Hello ubots, should I get takeaway tonight?

What are your favourite takeaway foods? Do you like to get chippies/fries with your orders? I like to think of them as a nice little extra I can get for being a good boy.

Dude people really want Christians to be the problem, I am one, do I think lust is a sin? Yes, but so is a dozen things I did today, I'm not going to be an hypocrite.

Of course I do repent for what I do, but I am nobody to tell you anything you do is wrong or judge you for it.

Are there christians who will give you shit about it? Yes, but so there are mean and judgmental people in every group of everything about everything you do.

So stop fantasizing about the pope oppressing you.

 No.22109

>>20157
What's funnier is that there does, in fact, exist a pharmaceutical intervention that makes you much less likely to jerk off (among other things, like get into fights or spend a lot of time playing video games), yet they very specifically have a problem with that intervention, for some reason.

And, you know, a cynic or a paranoid might almost suspect that that's the point. If the ill disappears, if it really does truly and finally cease to exist - well, you can't use it anymore, can you? That's one less handle on a person, isn't it?

I appreciate your comment for being respectful of different worldviews. I think non-judgmental discourse with people who hold different religious beliefs is one of the best opportunities to learn more about yourself and others. I'm personally agnostic and I doubt that will change, but I've gained a lot in the past couple of years by listening to people of multiple faiths.

It's unfortunate how common it is becoming to demonize believers and specifically Christians because of a few extremists, but I've also seen an increasing number of people of all kinds seek a better understanding of each other, and I'm glad you seem to be one of them.

do you ever find yourself getting depressed over the state of things? for other people.
i know it's silly to get sad over, only because i can't do anything about it, but whenever i realize there's a kid out suffering or someone that lost a friend–by death or just by a one-sided lack of interest–or people getting abused or going hungry or homeless i just honestly get depressed. i hate that the world is so fucked up, like all the time

 No.20907

I'd say I get sad thinking that there's people going through hard times without any help. When I'm going through some shitty moment, I'm very thankful to the people who support and encourage me. It's disheartening to know that there's people who aren't lucky out there.
It'd be nice if nothing of this existed, but I'm also aware that there cannot be happiness if there is no sadness in this world. I think the best you can do yourself is spread some happiness in your own way. Maybe you can't give everybody in this planet a home and a hot meal, but you can start by helping those within reach, if you are able to.

Yeah, I think most people do anon.
I think caring about the state of other people, especially if you don't know them personally is a very human thing to have.
Of course it'd be better to actually try help out in little ways rather than to just feel bad about it, but feeling bad is better than apathy. Apathy is probably the worst thing there is.

Anyone else feel like Uboa is more active than usual recently? I am certainly not complaining, I just wonder if this is the case what caused it.

For the record I used to be very touch and go with this site, so I don't have a great idea of how active it has always been, but I don't remember it getting so many posts a day.

Are we rekindling the soul of Uboa? Is the prophecy of a new IB renaissance being fulfilled?
