Federal courts have recently started ruling that drawn or animated child pornography is just as illegal as photographic child pornography and that the people who posses, watch or trade in non photographic child pornography are criminals and subject to punishment just as much as those involved with photographic child pornography.

First off, that article says CGI, not anime illustrations, which are very different. Secondly it doesn't say anywhere that the CGI and writing contributed to his sentence.

>they seized numerous devices and discovered 721 images of child pornography. McGuire also possessed a large amount of child erotica and CGI animation child pornography.

Note the word ALSO which you edited out. It makes a note that he had CGI stuff but doesn't include it in the count. I hope you have some better evidence if you're fearmongering like this.

How much do you think people are tied down by their nature and what do you think it is? To me, human nature can be boiled down to a few thing: prioritizing self-interest, duplicitous, self-justification, craving validation, pushing others down to uplift themself at every opportunity and taking the path of least resistance
These are the things I think people are naturally inclined to do when they're left to their own devices. While people can occasionally override these core behaviors, few people can do so consistently. The majority of people will always follow their nature. Those who don't either compensate for their restraint through other forms of hedonism(self-righteousness), or are actually committed to their own ideal. How hard do you think it is for somebody to be the latter? Can anybody do it, or are people only born able to do it?

OP gets it. Selfishness is driven by ego, which convinces us that we're separate entities from the world around us. It's a necessary system for survival so it makes sense it has spread to every human.

Almost all behaviour can be explained by evolutionary psychology bar behaviour that clearly doesn't produce any kind of advantage (suicide), however within this framework it falls into maladaption.

Hard question. My hopes are
>wrote cool fantasy book that i've made passion project out of
>made fucking bank
>sitting on my ass for the rest of my life with a cute girl and financial stability (never had that as a child)
>autism became more manageable
>adhd diagnosis as well
>getting help for my piece of shit diet
>legally going by my favoured name
>just living relatively happy while writing about things i like

ofc my realistic expectations are just
>live with parents bc autism
>take 6 fucking years to write one book
>as college and uni go online i become true hikki
>die of malnutrition

>take the anime world by storm by becoming the first western manga-ka in shonen jump that doesn't even live in japan, series becomes an instant hit and even knocks one piece off its high horse, sales for tankos, merch, and anime bring in hundreds of millions
>use money to build first class music studio, become one man modern beatles and invent new genre of music that becomes the new sensation of the 21st century, I play literally wherever I want and it sells out every time, finish every show with karaoke with anime openings on the projector
>open first chain of topless weed dispensaries(bulletproof glass protects the girls from creeps but you can look all you want) in every legal state, the shops also double as concert venues where I have my events
>live in 5 story loft warehouse in los angeles, aquariums with exotic fish sea creatures one very wall, nightly raves where I DJ exclusively for stacked cosplayers that always end in orgies in homebuilt onsen
>eventually settle down by finding the descendant of a famous samurai so we can breed the ultimate warrior clan, move to semi-rural environment and live self-sufficiently teaching my own children about the world and sending my ideas to my indie game studio I bought so they can produce them to whatever painfully specific details I have in mind, every game I make revolutionizes the genre its from and is hailed as one of the best of its kind
that's just the beginning of my plans


Your chances of making bank off one book aren't good. In my opinion you should work on a smaller scope book and work hard on it and get it done and published in a few months as soon as you can. You'll learn a lot about publishing, money, writing. Then forget that one and move on to your next book. You'll improve a lot more writing 5 or 10 or more books in 5 years than one huge one. You can still use all that worldbuilding you've been doing, just tell smaller stories within it. Look at discworld for example. You can definitely do it.

>Getting help for my piece of shit diet

You can do that yourself. If you're problem is that you're fat, this is the guide recommended in the fat general on 4/fit/, I read through it and it seems pretty good https://physiqonomics.com/fat-loss/

Lmao fucking do it my man.

>finish every show with karaoke with anime openings on the projector

I could see that being a hit. There's obviously a lack of raw non-westernised otaku culture in the west, crazy man belting out anime kareoke on stage could carry the passion of an underground idol show if you know what you're doing. Or maybe you just want to do it as a power move, that's cool too.

>>22675 fantasy book anon. ty for the advice, I’ll keep all that in mind. Discworld looks interesting, I’ve had my eyes on terry pratchetts work for a while as a source of inspo but had no idea how to get into his stuff. I’ll see what I can do in terms of smaller stories with the world I have, although I do have an alternate universe thing going on that has a smaller story in the same setting which I’ve been thinking of making a ‘first book’ as it were. Smaller scale but same setting, yk? Smaller scale sounds good for a long running set of stories in the same setting

as for my piece of shit diet, it’s not that I’m fat (although I’m chubbier than most), I just physically can’t eat most food bc autism. Haven’t eaten a vegetable since I was a baby. It’s a psychiatric issue more than anything. Thanks for the link tho, I’ll give it a look if my weight gets worse

I’ll keep all that in mind for my future plans

What is nothing?
4 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


"Innocence is ignorance. In his innocence man is not determined as spirit but is soulishly determined in immediate unity with his natural condition. […] In this state there is peace and repose; but at the same time there is something different, which is not dissension and strife, for there is nothing to strive with. What is it then? Nothing. But what effect does nothing produce? It begets dread. This is the profound secret of innocence, that at the same time it is dread. Dreamingly the spirit projects its own reality, but this reality is nothing, but this nothing constantly sees innocence outside of it." (Kierkegaard)


isn't that still something?


What is something?


Everything except nothing. The real question is, what is nothing?


Anything except something then, by your logic. QED.

1) tech support, password reset monkey
2) tech support that knows how to use git and docker + programming
sorry, but reading Red Hat documentation isn't essential to understand "computing", that's barely scratching the surface. None of these *require* Linux, it's just the commercial standard tool. I could easily go back to the 00s and be on Solaris or BSD, or I can just say fuck you and use Windows Server. Linux is not prerequisite to understand computing on a fundamental level, nor to understand tech support.
