What's going on with Lain lately? I remember a thread from a couple months ago talking about how lainchan died because some guy guessed the admin password and deleted everything for the hell of it. After that a new lainchan that looks way better was made. Where's that thread and what's the link to the new and improved lainchan? Also, what happened to tsuki and system space? Did anything happen on July 1st? Is tsuki dead? What the fucks going on people?

Do you think our society likes to glorify mental illness/depression/anxiety? I sometimes think they do because I've seen normalfags really like to talk about their crippling anxiety and depression (although it could also be the noted rise of depression and mental illness among the newer generations). Not only that, but people's interest in things like outsider artists and the tortured artist stereotype. Is it just normal people wanting their boring lives to be more interesting?

>Attitudes like that further fuel the cagey mentality of the modern Black person. Getting these people on their feet required more than breaking their chains, as any sharecropper could tell you.

a lot of the opportunity to be proactive has passed. They're doing better now, I see a lot more black people in the suburbs and in positions of leadership at their work. This is because opportunities started opening up slowly over the past 30 years as racist attitudes and segregation receded. Both of which were huge economic and educational obstacles.
Had the post-Lincoln presidents tried to interfere in the postwar South to educate freed slaves and thusly enable them to diversify economically and participate in skilled trades (which are the best way to start a trans-generational social climb) they might have been able to mitigate the lost economic opportunities posed by racist attitudes in the North and South. And killing the exploitative and destructive sharecropper system would have been a boon in itself, in some ways it further degraded black opportunity to improve their condition.
Wealth, skills, and intangible advantages such as mentality are passed down through generations. This is why poverty is cyclical: if you come from nothing you have nothing to use to improve your living, reducing your chances of doing so, and having advantages to give your offspring. Because these advantages could not develop under slavery, no wealth for the next generation to inheirit and no precedence of success for them to draw from, the freed slaves did not have the tools that some migrants and middle class whites had. A jumpstart was needed, but once the war was done nobody cared. Hell, a lot of the free staters and abolitionists still wanted nothing to do with the blacks. Lincoln himself cared only for the preservation of the Union and democracy.
This is a community that lost everything when they left Africa, was denied the opportunity to start anew for 300+ years, and was economically hampered even outside of the plantation slavery model by precedence-inspired racism. Who will invest or trade with people that they have been taught are incompetent, especially when social pressure is levelled against them for even considering the idea?
A defeatist mentality is inspired, reinforced, and spread through defeat. We have seen this occur in other places, such as the Gaelic nations of Britain. Once the cycle is started, whether by human action or misfortune, it builds momentum both within the hampered community and its neighbors.

Aren't pride parades just that?

Anyway, this phenomena is nothing new, you can trace it back to Victorian era and probably even further in history, goth and emo scenes were just that.
Regarding depression: Self pitying is addictive and since misery loves company, self pitying people come together and try to get others to give them sympathy, and since people are egoistical by nature they prefer receiving sympathy over giving it, and in order to appear more deserving of attention they blow their pain out of proportion, then start believing it themselves and make it real.
And its not just psychological problems, people like to brag about being gluten/lactose intolerant too.

Seisatsu has promoted hate speech on the internet for over a decade and and continues to do so, yet when his efforts bear fruit in the form of terrorism nobody hold him responsible.
Does anyone else think thats odd?
If people on the internet were saying Seisatsu should be shot and then someone did it, the people who were saying to do so on the internet would be considered partly responsible, so why is it different when Seisatsu promotes terrorism and then others suffer while he benefits?

What are the best (FREE) language learning services available on the Internet? Couple of my relatives speak Korean and I was wondering my options so I could actually talk to them. And yes, I'm trying Duolingo as I speak. Doesn't look great.

A torrent client and a keyboard. I've found most web-based resources to be rather lackluster for anything that isn't English or Japanese, and YouTube videos are a rabbit hole. Russian resources, for example, were very lacking. I haven't heard good stuff about Duolingo and it just looks and sounds like a procrastinator's dream. With most languages, you should in general learn the script/alphabet (if applicable), get a grammar sheet or two, and learn some vocabulary and get ready to try and contextualize stuff. Try buying a (reputable) college book on Korean or pirating it like everyone is supposed to. I don't know much about Korean, so take this with a grain of salt, but this seems to be the most reputable beginner level resource:
http://www.amazon.com/Integrated-Korean-Beginning-Textbooks-Language/dp/0824834402/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1260972037&sr=8-1

I already know the alphabet; Korean is known for the easy alphabet and hard as hell grammar. Anyways, thank you! The book you found looks like a good find, positive reviews and cheap compared to other highly rated books I found. Good looking suggested books too. I'm probably going to pool resources for a college book, pirating's never been my thing even though I have no fucking money.

 No.19856

Good chance you already heard of several or all of these, but…

Lingodeer is a bit better app than Duolingo. More structure, teaches words in context and grammar right away.
If you already know a lot of words and grammar u can use Naver dictionary to learn more. Naver has a whole subsection of their website dedicated to foreign speakers and learners.
HiNative is made by the people who made Lang-8, it's an app where you can ask natives questions but again, assumes you know at least some basic shit. Speaking of Lang-8, they stopped new signups but if you just happen to have one from a while ago it could be useful.
Youtube and web Talk To Me in Korean. I haven't used it because I'm lazy and stubborn but they have free courses, native speakers, and free Youtube videos on all sorts of subjects. I heard people say they got very far with them but IDK about quality, sorry. Just throwing things at the wall here.


Or make a new (separate) Twitter account and post in Korean and ask questions while posting about daily life or your interests. I'm only in the super beginning phases of Korean, so I'm not much help beyond this, but I really see this as a good step since it kinda forces you to practice.

Make some Korean friends somehow. Whatever you do, at least try to be genuine with them in terms of friendship. If you just want a language partner I'm sure you could find one by asking around.

I have heard that written and spoken Korean can be very different, so keep that in mind if you didn't know that already.

Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Learn from them. Mistakes will be funny and you'll laugh at them later on down the line. Oh no, that's generic language learning advice…
