Random Thoughts Vol. IXThe other thread has been in auto-sage for some time now, so it was about time someone made a new one.
Chats & Communities Thread 3 - Son of Chats & Communities ThreadIt's back, but this time on /ot/ instead of /hikki/. I don't really know why it was on /hikki/ in the first place. Please welcome our new, site-wide Chats & Communities Thread.
Finding a friend group onlineDo any of you guys know how to find friends online? I want to talk to someone while my days still pass by, but I don't know how… How can I find a social bubble online? I don't want to be alone anymore but it's so hard to find a place I feel welcomed in too. I just don't know anymore
Thought ExperimentsThis 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).
Videa-Game addictionAny 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?
New users of uboachan, how did you find this place?I was just really bored some random night in September 2016 and decided to go on tvtropes (don't blame me).
Modern cartoons are actually kinda goodI know some guys are so stricken with dem rose tinted goggles nowadays, and I've got my own old sucker-shows, but I recently found out some modern toons have actually gotten really good as of late, post-Gravity Falls at least.

Fri(end)shipsGreetings. Major venting post here. For all my life, I can not say I had a friendship that sustained for more then three to four years. This is obviously not the crux on what I want to convey. Digging deeper, the reason these friendships even lasted was because I was the only one trying my best to maintain them. From bringing up various topics to build a discussion, getting into their interests, remembering and bringing them gifts for their birthdays, always being positive and friendly… etc. All of these efforts lead to a delightful and well spent time with the person I am interacting with, but eventually they just stop contributing and ignore me, in favor of being with someone else. Of course, it is not uncanny for people to want to interact with others, especially with firends, or people, thay have been with for far longer, but leaving me out of the picture entirely, despite my attempts to be an open and likeable individual, simply makes me feel cheated and my efforts; fruitless. Soon, they forget about me and mingle in with the next of kin, in that large insufferable pack I despise the sight of (talking about people in groups of seven, or more). In the end, I just let them be and move on to someone new, only for the cycle to repeat again.

Small and not so small things you'd like to changeDo you have anything you'd like/are planning to change?
The Next DecadeRealistically, where do you see the world ten years from now? What events will define the 2020's? Will the cultural shift be as intense as 2009 to 2019? From another perspective, where do you see yourself 10 years from now? Do you feel that your lifestyle or standard of living may change?
smells like pxlsHey there hikikomoris
Human NatureHow 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
personality test to end all personality testsRecently, I took the Enneagram test. I'm either a type 8, type 4, or type 6. Also either a 8w7 or 8w9. This doesn't surprise me much since it fits my experience with every other personality test. I don't neatly fit into one category and the way I act and think dramatically shifts depending on the circumstances. Frankly, I think Meyer-Briggs is obsolete bullshit unsubstantiated by modern reseach. People who take it too seriously come off as pretentious and simple-minded to me and on forums it's like they actively try to fit the stereotype. I think it appeals to people who don't have anything real going for them. The missing piece is taking into account how people's personalities naturally shift. The brain is remarkably complex, but what we perceive as personality is basically an illusion.
Trannies on uboachan?Given that this is a fan site for self inserting as a jap girl, how many uboachanners have gone full trans, either transitioning to jap or girl?

Inept HackingLol, sometimes I see some funny shit in our security logs. Guess what dipshit, Rozen hasn't had an account on an uboachan server since 2011 and the admin account on a Linux box is never called admin. Logs posted for chuckles.
NightI'm almost 30 and work an 8 to 5 job from Monday to Friday. Every night before I sleep I keep hoping that I never wake up. I have little attachments to this world. I'm just ranting since this is the /ot/ board. I used to post here before as a neet, now I'm posting as someone with responsibilities in society.
Doomed and tiredI can’t stand any more how much my social anxiety keeps blocking me away from what I want to do. I feel like each day I’m going crazier from the weariness and frustration it causes me. And I feel like my life is getting closer and closer to a situation where it is essential for my survival to be able to overcome this, at least enough to not end up starving on the streets.
sam hyde here, internet's busiest music nerdIn the past I have been diagnosed with general anxiety disorder and more specifically social anxiety disorder.
The State of Image BoardsI'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.
Humans and Roosters, Roosters and HumansHave you ever wondered of rooster onomatopoeia? Because the English version of rooster crow is so utterly fake! Just compare the audio of crowing rooster https://freesound.org/people/Sclolex/sounds/324210/ and the "cock-a-doodle-doo". Neither English "cock-a-doodle-doo", nor German 'kikeriki' or Russian /kukarʲe'ku:/ manages to achieve the faintest semblance of rooster crow. The only language I've found that does at least the rhythm(prosody?) right is Turkish: ü-ürü-üüü /yʔyryʔyː/.
Discord ProblemsAnyone know what to do about not being able to get into the Discord chat? I am new, and I'm sorry if that's why, but every time I use the "!join" command, It won't go through. Anyways, thanks in advance!
Minecraft Lost Cities ModI set up a Minecraft Lost Cities modded server to play around with. Take a look. It's a mapgen mod, so the world is an auto-generated abandoned city in all directions. If there is enough interest for me to find donors, I will add some more features and plugin support. Currently it is otherwise vanilla, with 12 player slots.
ITT: stupid shit you spent way too much time on for no reasoni’m guilty of this heavily, so i’ll just use one example.
