Fri(end)ships

Greetings. 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.

To further explain my efforts to keep these friendships afloat, here is the basic interaction of talking. Be it in person, or on social media. The case that is always apparent, is where I have to be the one who starts and leads the conversation. None of these people have ever even brought something to talk about, let alone greet me. I always have to be the one who drives it. They begin just fine, but as always, they screech to a halt unless I bring up the second topic. Most of their contributions are either answering yes, no, or okay, sometimes replying in full detail to answer my questions. It does not feel as if they do want to talk with me and I end up wasting hours of my time I could have spent better elsewhere. What is worse however, is the fact that I could stop talking to them for months on end and the flow will still be the same, no matter what. I simply want a conversation that can last for hours and feel fulfilling at best, but it is sad that this never happens.

Another similar case is in hangouts. Anytime I suggest that the two of us visit a fun, or new location to tour around in, the answers I receive are either a flat out no, or a yes that leads to a sudden remembrance, or incident that cancels my plan.

I could go on to other things, from how they do not root for me, payback my expenses on them, remembering my birthday… etc, but I had developed a mighy wall of text, which might bore anyone from wanting to read my thoughts. So, I will end it here, for now.

All I want to know, is if am I the one who is in the wrong? Are my expectations with friends too high, or do I distribute and try to hard to maintain it, which leads to them not wanting to be buddies with me. I just want a friend who will be with me for years and is actually responsive, diligent and delighted by everything we do, every step of the way, but I guess that will be too much to ask for. Thank You for reading, I suppose. Maybe leave a leave a thought, a question, or two, or whatever you wish to do. Vent over.

How does weather affect your mood?

My mood depends a lot on the the weather, time of day and season.
Time of day
Early morning is my favorite; it makes me feel fresh and clean, especially during the Summer. Something about waking up before most people, when the air is crisp, makes me blissful. Sunset somehow always depresses me. The sun slowly dipping into an orange haze reminds me that the day is coming to a close and that time has passed. The changing of seasons has a similar effect on me, but a summer sunset always feels the worst. Once night arrives I feel fine.
Weather
I love cloudy weather because it masks the time of day. You don't feel the slow, ceaseless crawl of time when it always looks the same outside. I also love rain and every type of storm. Hurricanes, blizzards, typhoons, they're all exhilarating. Compared to the daily monotony, they feel like an event. Sometimes I like to fantasize about massive, four story tall floods.
Season
Fall feels melancholic. Seeing the world slowly decay into bareness isn't pretty to me; Halloween is great though. Winter makes me feel tired and sort of hallow. There's some nice things about it too. Spring kind of puts me in a panic. For whatever reason, when the temperature outside rises above a certain point, it makes my thoughts a bit hazy and erratic, this just becomes more intense in Summer.
How does weather affect you? Do you notice anything similar?

I've been reconsidering my life. They always tell you that as you grow up things get easier since you mature and bloom into a normal human being… but I've been pondering whether people only pretend to have their lives in control only to not lose their shit about it. I mean, yeah, I don't think everybody hates their lives, but I'm sure everybody gets chocked by the pressure once in a while. The question is, what happens when your life is constant chocking? Or rather, can you go on with your live as you're chocked every second? Some years ago I remember looking at people and feeling completely distant, and knowing that one day I'd merge with the multitude. Now that it's happening, I almost can feel my old self there looking at me from outside the crowd. It's been pretty surreal. My life isn't bad in on itself, but I feel I can't fit, and no matter what I do it's never enough. I don't know, I've had this idea that I'm broken somehow, and it's been my justification for so long. If I can't be fixed, why bother?

So yeah. It's late ubuu, I'm tired and I caught a cold. Good night, hang in there, guys. I hope that even if things aren't going that well you can at least get some peace from Ritz's voice.
Good night.

Modern cartoons are actually kinda good

I 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.

The Owl House, Amphibia, Invincible, Big City Greens to name a few

One con is that they can never get like more than 3 seasons thanks to networks coz they ain't "consistently marketable". And you won't like 15% of TOH if you can't handle representation. It's not really in-your-face buzzwords though. (Unlike Q-Force. Fuck Q-Force.)

You can get most of them free and high-quality on Vimeo or Dailymotion. yarharfiddledeedee

日本語スレ

How is your japanese going? Still suffering with kanji grinding? Dealing with grammar rules? Just starting out?
Ask anything, I'll probably be the only fagget answering but something is something.

I meant to do this thread weeks ago but I was lazy to prepare a resource list and stuff. Thankfully a lainanon posted this list on /cyb/ and since I agree with most of what it says I thought about posting it here.


Start here, read it all the way down, even if it says Advanced it still won't be enough for you to understand all everyday sentences correctly
http://www.guidetojapanese.org/learn/grammar

Keep going with this
http://www.imabi.net/

Various lookup guides for grammar and such, make sure to read them through
http://www.jgram.org/
http://jiten.clanteam.com/ (full transcript of the Dictionary of Japanese Grammar volumes)
http://www.mediafire.com/download/dckt6ix32l93f35/fora.pdf (you'd better print this cheatsheet somewhere)
http://www.tanos.co.uk/jlpt/ (contains audio files and JLPT test sheets as well, the grammar usage section is particularly useful)

The rest:
http://grammar.nihongoresources.com/doku.php
http://amaterasu.tindabox.net/guide/

Nice site to learn vocabulary, online flashcards so you can review them everywhere without installing useless programs
http://www.manythings.org/japanese/
Make sure to study the daily kanji list at least up until level 5
http://www.manythings.org/japanese/daily/

I'm not suggesting any specific Anki deck, but kanji consist of a phonetic and semantic part which helps a lot in guessing the on-yomi (pseudo-Chinese reading). This is probably also the reason Japanese prefer using jukugo over native vocabulary when writing so try it and learn the patterns, it'll make learning kanji easier
https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/2079428463

KanjiDamage is crap for learning kanji, despite what /a/ says, but since you can use many kanji to represent the same native Japanese word, read this. It'll save you up time learning kun-yomi and clear a lot of things up.
http://kanjidamage.com/appendix/dupes

Online dictionaries just in case:
http://jisho.org/
http://tangorin.com/

Other web utilities, pretty limited usage but help sometimes:
http://www.hiragana.jp/en/ (injects furigana over kanji)
http://www.rikai.com/perl/HomePage.pl?Language=Ja (kanji reading on mouseover, Japanese)
http://www.rikai.com/perl/Home.pl (kanji reading on mouseover)

Congrats, you learned Japanese for free.

PS: Those are some good resources. If you have a smartphone you might want to check out the app called "Obenkyo". It is very interesting because it has a test for writing Kanji for real. Think Anki except you write Kanji. Apart from that there's not much interesting things in that. As for Kanij and Vocab I use those:

https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/798002504 - All in one Ultimate Kanji thing.

Guide to being socially acceptable on Uboachan

Hello anon! I assume you, like many of us, are 14 year old shitposters from Taiwan! You might be a bit confused, but here is my guide to sucessfully avoid the ban hammer and appear like a sucessful and interesting person on this board! Also included are some general tips for the Uboachan lifestyle. You cool yet, holmes? Aight hombre, time to start this guía:


Uboachan's best is composed of /t/, /neet/ and /ot/

You should listen to Linkin Park while playing .flow, it helps a lot with the atmosphere

Don't forget to help tumblr figure out YN/.flow/2kki/memetsuki by revealing the truth to them (Mado was raped/Sabi is a slut/Urotsuki has big tits and is a homofurry transhuman boy/memetsuki has a dark past)

Listen to BABYMETAL while studying Spanish, it will help your pronounciation tenfold!

Always have a folder full of Cory ready, you might just not know when it might be useful.

Getting PROJECT Yume Nikki merchandise results in some sick reputation around these roads.

Save up money or steal your parents credit card and buy a Toyota AE86 Sprinter Trueno and proceed to drift to impress all the hot girls at school.

Watch Lain and uncover all the secrets of the entire world.

Always ignore Kibbles' posts, as he is a filthy うぼあ-Madrid War veteran who tries to mess with all the new generations like you, and grow you into a cynical, full on dick shitting, teeth rotting cute G.I.R.L

By the way, here in /hikki/, if you tell us about how sad your life is, 100% guaranteed (this is almost like a law by now) there will be a jealous angsty bitch with an even MORE sadder life or batshit insane scenario.

Don't forget, your spirit is not lost, we will always be here to gently pat your ass cheeks when you sucessfuly shitpost with us.

If your mom hates you just say she doesn't understand your suffering and just talk about your dreams, ambitions, downfalls and fears.

Lastly, don't forget to sign up for our secret society!

Have you ever been into outdoorsy stuff? Either now, or at some point in your life, have you ever been into fishing or hiking or biking or camping, etc? I remember going on long hikes through the mountains and other trails with my dad. I always liked that feeling of adventure. Looking at abandoned houses, walking along-side roads, biking downhill the sidewalks of a busy bridge road, aimlessly wandering through densly wooded tunnels. The quiet of woods can really create an exciting tension. I'd like to do that more often.

Public service announcement

as an example on how things never play out the way they do in the movies, here's the ending to the original 1964 Willy Wonka as is followed by how it would play out in real life

>Willy Wonka movie


Grampa Joe: it's an elevator

Wonka: it's a wonka vator! an elevator can only go up and down, but the wonka vator can go up and down, side to side, long ways and short ways, and up and till now I've pressed them all! except that one! go ahead Charlie!

now lets see how that same scene would play out if Willy Wonka had Aspergers syndrome

>Willy Wonka real life


Grandpa Joe: it's an elevator

you: it's a wonka vator! an elevator can only go…

Grandpa Joe: well I'm not going to argue with you! all i did was make an observation, and you want to argue with me about it right off the bat!

you: sir I'm not arguing with you I'm…

Grandpa Joe: see your doing it again! you don't need to argue with everything I say! and another thing…

10 minutes later

Grandpa Joe: and that's why I'm never eating your chocolate again!

you: can I say something really quick?

Grandpa Joe: go ahead!

you: all I was trying to say is that this is a special kind of elevator, that goes in more directions then just up and down! up until now I've pressed them all! except that one! go ahead Charlie!

Grandpa Joe: don't tell my kid what to do!!! why don't you press it!!!

you: fine

it takes off and the a**hole still wont shut up

Grandpa Joe: what the hell happening?!!! get me out of this thing before I call the police!

yeah I'm sure this version would have been a family classic, I hope whomever is reading this is able to see by now why people with Aspergers live angry stressful lives, engaging in unusual behavior like this toward them accomplishes nothing and only creates problems, it's the responsibility of society as a whole to do their part and see to it that these types of societal problems don't stick around for future generations of Aspergers to suffer through, clean up your act and your reward is a brighter tomorrow.

How long can you sit through this video I stumbled across?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTKCtyD8kBY
R: 6 / I: 2
I watched Roma yesterday because I wanted to expand my perspective and try new things. I wanted to go far out of my comfort zone. It sucked. A pretentious bore. I understood what is was trying to go for, I understood the symbolism and what the obscure details meant. I still hated it. Why? I didn't connect with the characters. They were all unlikable or boring, blank skates. Whatever empathy I felt for the mc, Cleo, is the same amount I would have for a stanger. I don't get to know anybody. None of the characters truly develop either. The way they act at the beginning and what you can imagine them doing, remains entirely the same at the end. The mother does become more self-assured after she has to become a career woman, but this might only be visible because of the actress. It wasn't coveyed particularly well by the writing and plot. Cleo just felt like an alien to me. She was quiet, dumb and naive. At the end, she was a bit less naive. This again, was not coveyed through much action. She has one line of dialogue that indicates this. The revolution backdrop of the movie feels totally separate from the main plot and I didn't have the background knowledge to understand why it was happening. The film gives no insight into this.

The film seemed to me like a propaganda piece made to give a human face to Mexicans and get me to sympathize with them more. I'm not deliriously cynical enough to completely believe this was for political reasons, but I wouldn't be suprised. It failed. It has two hours to accomplish the bare requirement for a compelling story and it failed. I didn't even learn anything new. It was like a late night soap operaish flick with a few extra embellishments like class struggle. Nothing new or suprising. It seems like a movie made by Mexicans for Mexicans. How it got so much praise is a mystery to me.

Small and not so small things you'd like to change

Do you have anything you'd like/are planning to change?
Things like habits, spending too much time playing games, reading too little, not drawing, having too much free time and wanting to use it for something, etc.
Things that you had wanted to change for a long time but haven't either put yourself into work. Or, if you're working on that, what are you doing to change them?
As for OP:

→Exercise more
I spend most of my day sitting so I'd like to get rid of the extra energy I get every time I eat. The thing is, I live in a small apartment, and I don't really want to join a gym or anything like that. I'd like to run but the only good place is far and I don't have the time. I'd like to do something in my home but, since it's small, there's not much I can do to burn energy. At least I don't know of any exercise that doesn't require that much space other than abdominals and squatting.
→Fix twangy speech
I've only noticed recently my voice sounds twangy, probably because I don't speak too much/often so I don't move my mouth properly or something, but I've started to read books aloud and recording my voice to improve it.
→Learn to speak Japanese
I know how to read, but when it comes to speaking or writing in japanese I still have serious problems.

Most people have a particular transformation fetish. I don't desire to apply makeup as a girl, or to be treated like one by society. I like being the guy in my current relationship, and asking my girl about how her body feels to know how she feels.

But I'm still a switch, and when I read erotica I can insert as the dom who takes advantage of a confused ex-man, or as the sub with new body parts. Transformation and intercourse get me off, but not the trans lifestyle.

Hello, uboachan. It's been a long time since I learned about this site almost a decade ago, and a long time since I've lurked here. I didn't spend much time here before and I don't know if I will now, but finding this site again and seeing it still somewhat alive feels a bit like part of something I've missed.

Human Nature

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?

Hi, so, I have a question related to editing recorded voices. I want to edit my recorded voice, so that it can sound tinny/robotic (I am not sure, as to what it is really called), through the audacity software.

personality test to end all personality tests

Recently, 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.

Anyway, I thought about how you could make a better test and came up with some ideas. Aside from testing for general behavioral tendencies like extraversion and introversion, I think there should be sub-catergories depending on other factors:

How you interact with people you see as socially and emotionally above, equal and below you. By socially above, I mean like societal position. A boss or parent or teacher is above you. Emotionally above is somebody you actually respect and look up to. A boss you think is an asshole or idiot is somebody you see as socially above you, but emotionally below you, etc.

How you deal with your own and others social/emotional challenges.
How you deal with your own and others social/emotional desires.

All of the questions will also take into account whether you feel content or discontent(sadness/anger) socially/emotionally. Depending on everything, your results would also include stable/unstable and successful/unsuccessful.

Overly positive descriptions give people a warped sense of self-perception. Taking into account whether a person is well adjusted or not would give more accurate results. I think this whole thing could only be accomplished by asking about complex scenarios and including some more personal questions.

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?
This site has been around since forever so I can only assume that a lot of the long term uboachan denizens are really dedicated to self inserting as a jap girl, so I figure at least a few must have transitioned by now.

How has your personality changed over time? A couple of years ago, I took what was probably the most accurate personality test I ever came across. Today I found the same test and the results were a bit worrying.
http://www.seemypersonality.com/#q1
First, here's my first report.
>Your Personality Type is The Artisan (RICGS) Artisans are emotionally reactive, which means that they experience their emotions strongly and can be very passionate., however also have a higher tendency to experience emotions such as anxiety, anger and depression. Due to their independence and reserve, sometimes the Artisan can be perceived as arrogant or unfriendly, however this is merely because they don't require the same level of social stimulation or interaction that others may seek. The Artisan generally prefers fact over fiction and security and stability over ambiguity and disorder. Sticking with convention and familiar routines is generally best. With a healthy skepticism of the motives of others, and a belief in justice and being self made, sometimes the Artisan can come across as guarded or intimidating. However the Artisan has a refreshing impulsiveness about them, they tend to dislike too many rules and regulations and can be casual and whimsical.
>You often resist any cravings or urges that you have, but sometimes you give in, however you experience panic, confusion, and helplessness when under pressure or stress. You tend not to talk much and prefer to let others control the activities of groups. You prefer dealing with either people or things rather than ideas. You regard intellectual exercises as a waste of your time. You are willing to take credit for good things that you do but you don't often talk yourself up much, however you believe that a certain amount of deception in social relationships is necessary. You are guarded in new relationships and less willing to openly reveal the whole truth about yourself.
>You are a reasonably organized person and like to have a certain amount of routine in your life.
>You are generally calm, although some situations can make you feel anxious or tense. You do not usually get angry too easily but some things can annoy you. Mostly your emotions are on an even keel and you do not get depressed easily. You are not generally self conscious about yourself. You often resist any cravings or urges that you have, but sometimes you give in. You experience panic, confusion, and helplessness when under pressure or stress.
>You generally make friends easily enough although you mostly don't go out of your way to demonstrate positive feelings toward others. You like crowds but sometimes feel overwhelmed by them. Sometimes you feel like you need some privacy and time for yourself. You tend not to talk much and prefer to let others control the activities of groups. You lead a moderately paced life. You like some energetic activities, but also like to relax and take it easy. You enjoy some excitement and risk taking in your life. You are not prone to spells of energetic high spirits.
>You prefer facts over fantasy and are more interested in what is happening in the real word. You are not interested in the arts and do not display aesthetic sensitivity. You tend not to express your emotions openly and are sometimes not even aware of your own feelings. Familiar routines are good, but sometimes you like to spice up your life with a bit of adventure or activity. You prefer dealing with either people or things rather than ideas. You regard intellectual exercises as a waste of your time. You like the security of tradition, but sometimes have a desire to bend the rules and challenge conventional thinking.

I've been reluctant to post here despite my deep love for the game mainly just from the idea of sheer anonymity being somewhat scary to me, mostly just from the idea that I could never really know if I was speaking to the same person again twice. Not knowing if I'd ever be able to see them again, or how long they've been here, not unlike the feeling you get seeing someone offline for several years. I guess I'll have to move past that now, since I don't really know where else I could go. Social media is shittier than usual now and Discord doesn't feel worth all the crap you have to deal with. I spend all my time in bed and more time watching gameplay of stuff in my library since I can't spend more than a few hours at my PC before wanting to lie down again. I've been dealing with OCD for almost 7-8 years now and with shit everything outside has gotten, the symptoms have been getting worse. I love this game, and this place seems to really love it too, it makes us feel together being alone. I just want someone who understands that I can really talk to.

And then a couple years ago, I started sleeping more and more to the point that I just conk out without warning, and now this week I finally got a diagnosis.

I've lived in America for my entire life and I'm really starting to get fed up with some stuff about it and I don't know to do except vent about it. I just want to know what other people think about these grievances.
1.Puritanical society: America was founded by puritans and other such zealots and even today that's readily apparent in common culture. An obsession with not just the preservation of some archaic, arbitrary moral code, but also with the status quo is ever-present in just about most of the people you meet here. Preconceived notions and lessons beaten into people command day to day life. Take the typical American. Their head is filled with handstand logic and back flip principles that they don't even consider for a second might be wrong. What's more annoying than what people believe, is their insistence on its rightness and exepectation that others conform to it.
2. Society of slaves: America has always been carried by the labor of exploited people and it has only prospered either when a source of people to exploit was readily available or everybody else was screwed up. Every point in history, everything. Colonial times, blacks. Industrial Age, for a short time, actual Americans. Railways, the Chinese. Today, Indians, Chinese and Mexicans. You could say this about pretty much every society, but only America is obsessive about their being the best while having citizens who are unwilling to labor in a farm because they think that they are too good for that. Everybody just has to spend a fuck load on college so they can get a liberal arts degree and drown in debt.
3. Everything is shit: The airports, the cities, the public transportation, the schools, the roads, every other part of infrastructure, they're all filthy and and horribly out-dated and in a state of disrepair and decrepitude. Even in the oldest parts of the country, the architecture is drab and done with as little care as possible. Every house is just a block thrown together. New York has a few nice, gothic buildings, but the rest is either the same boring, modern fare , or a rotting stack of bricks. Look at the subway!
4. Nothing ever changes: Look at the sprawling mass of emptiness, the endless, lifeless suburbia where children are sheltered and locked up in the most literal form of a physical and mental bubble as they could be. Look at all the small, shitty towns. Look at the bizarre mountain people who may or may not be inbred. Look at the shitty food filled with chemicals that the FDA doesn't care about because it won't immediately kill you. It's just a little frustrating. It makes me want to vomit my intestines out sometimes. Why, why do things have to be like this?

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).
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.

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.

I been feeling lately like a lot of the interest that normalfags take in Asiatic culture is somewhat disingenuous. In an attempt to appear more, "cultured", people have started moving away from European stuff and focusing on more, "exotic", cultures to seem more well-rounded. To me, it seems like they're forcing themselves to take appear like they've taken an interest in something to put on airs. A lot of what they focus on and glamorize were also at one point mundane, normal parts of life to their original practitioners. And now these people are coming in and treating it like some kind of high art. Even though they supposedly moved away from traditional European traditional culture, they still change their subjects of interest to better fit that mold of treatment. A good example of this is how the Michelin Star guide, which is almost entirely made up of indistinguishable, massively expensive French restaurants, randomly decided to throw in one Dim-Sum place. These people also completely ignore more contemporary Asian culture in favor of an obsolete version of ancient traditions, which have actually been updated for modern times by the people who made those traditions. You don't see these people try to emulate an eighteenth century English tea party. There's just something off-putting to me about the image of a bunch of snobbish, old, white people sitting around in Kimonos and obsessing over all the intricacies of a tea-ceremony in a class they payed to take and attend once a week in between golf games. Is this all just in my head, or does anybody else feel the same way?

Doesn't matter where it's from or if you know who originally said it. I'll start:

"People are always creeping towards death. so don't you think that we should celebrate our life as much as we can? But no matter what they do, the fact that they'll eventually die doesn't change. In the end, everyone dies…just like machines and other things. But they struggle through their lives. What would they be fine with leaving behind? The proof that they were here? But why would anyone want to leave behind that sort of thing? Isn't that just for self-satisfaction?"

I will soon be out of high school, I want to go to university because it would give me better job prospects, and graduates are statistically shown to earn more on average than people without a degree. The thing is, I seriously don't know what field to choose. The only thing I was ever mildly passionate about is programming, but I have a weird love-hate relationship with it. When I was in middle school, I would play around with gamemaker, unity, and the minecraft mod computercraft, nowadays I occasionally make simple browser games in javascript. While I do enjoy programing when things are going smoothly and my code works the way it should, if I get stuck and I can't figure something out it can get extremely frustrating. If there's a bug in something I'm making and I can't figure it out within an hour I usually just drop the project. I don't code often though, I'm pretty bad at it, and I only do it about once a month. Maybe if I got good this problem would fix itself. I'm thinking about going to a university related to AI since I find the topic interesting, but I would have to code a lot and I'm afraid I would start hating it over time. How do I choose what to do after high school? I seriously have no idea what I will do once I'm done with it. Sorry for the poor English, it's not my first language and I've never read a book in it.

Dear STIsatsu,

     I'm uploading these classic 4chon.net banners for your use when you make the new /4chon/ board. As you already are aware, 4chon is a long established internet culture that is currently homeless due to aggressive mass censorship from the corporate world and in order to help preserve diversity of culture and thought on the internet it is imperative that 4chon have a new and reliable permanent home. Uboachan has been fantastically stable over years of tested performance, its a wonderful website with highly skilled technical backing and thats why it's been lucky enough to be picked at the new home for /4chon/.

A couple days ago, I found an old printed copy, all the way back from middle school, of the login info for some online databases. I thought it'd be funny to see how much info they have on nip stuff. Instead it was sort of depressing, but a bit informative. Newer articles seem to focus entirely on live action remakes or whatever's airing on netflix, older ones from the early 2000s have this air of confusion and disbelief that's painful. The few 90's articles seem the most genuine. Here's some choice quotes. This is how it's perceived by outsiders.
TV Overdose for Kids- 2009
>I still get nostalgic whenever I come across kiddie shows on television.For example, I pine for old good carrot-munching Bugs Bunny and perky Woody Woodpecker. The fast-paced Japanese animated shows called Anime, in my book, are too realistic and mere imitation of violent adult action movies.Some of the casualties of modern animation were characters that my generation grew up with.
>harsh-voice Donald Duck, Tom and Jerry and Mickey Mouse with his merry gang of Minnie Mouse, Pluto and hare-brained Goofy, truly kid stuffs. These wholesome shows of my childhood have now been replaced by Astro Boy, Voltes V, Mazinger Z and other androids battling mechanical monsters out to take over the world.As always, the shows always end up with the hero and the villain trying to annihilate each other in a flurry of lights, colors and grating synthesized sounds. Great for kids, but unfortunately, bad for their education.
>Research shows that exposure to this type of programming increases the risk of aggressive behavior and at the same time, desensitizes children to violence. Studies on links between TV overdose and child development and value formation also reveal that these kinds of shows can muddle children&rsquo;s understanding of the world and get in the way of their learning what&rsquo;s right and what&rsquo;s wrong. All this is according to LimiTV, a United States organization that advocates little-to-no TV viewing for children four-and-under.
>TV can also cause depression in a child who eventually feels like a &ldquo;loser&rdquo; if he or she does not get to possess the product being advertised.
Opening Today- 1997
>Limited Runs- Ghost in the Shell (1995), the anime future thriller that had its debut at South by Southwest last year, returns tonight at 9:30 and 11:15 p.m
LOST IN A WORLD OF ANIME, SCREAMS AND THE 'JESUS PHONE'- 2007
>Goku may fly over you this weekend, Sanji will offer a tasty dish and one of Naruto's kunais might come zipping through the air. It's a good thing I brought my kids to work because I'm really not sure what all that means. The boys tell me these and other characters from the world of anime will fill downtown starting Friday when Florida's largest anime convention kicks off at the Tampa Convention Center.
>The boys are excited, but me? I'm just waiting for The Flintstones convention. …
>About that iPhone hype. Unless it comes with a direct connection to the man above, I don't think you should call anything the "Jesus phone."
Japanese Art, Contemporary- 2004
>The signs of Western childhood play a very prominent role in post–World War II Japanese popular art, which has become increasingly global in its reach. This imagery, which is loosely called anime, takes many forms
>Begun in reaction to the events of World War II, anime have been described as both evidence of Japanese cultural vitality in the face of trauma and an escape from it.
>The salient characteristic of Japanese popular art within the history of childhood is its wholesale adoption of distinctly Western conventions for representing the ideal of innocent childhood–hybridized with traditionally Japanese manga comic drawings and mainstream Western cartoons. Most importantly, the large, round-eyed facial features of the stereotypically innocent child quickly became the standard mode of representing anime heroes and heroines, despite their clear racial difference from Japanese facial features.
>Western artists, moreover, have begun to incorporate anime imagery into their traditions, causing the stereotypes of childhood to reappear where they came from in radically new modes. A group of artists led by the award-winning French conceptual artist Pierre Huyghe, for instance, created a series of works made between 1999 and 2002, collectively titled No Ghost Just a Shell, based on an anime girl character called Annlee. These works addressed a range of distinctly adult concerns. As with other aspects of a post-modern, global culture, the signs of what was once considered inherently natural, in this case innocent childhood, have been detached from their content.
That one was super pretentious.

Doomed and tired

I 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.

So, this next week, I’m going to force myself to join at least one discord group I know about for people with anxiety. From there I’ll try to join some non-directed for my problem and instead to my interests. Yeah, I know how ridiculous it is that I can’t even join online groups without stressing out. This is how much social anxiety hinders me.

Through the suggestion of a friend, I’m also going to create an account on tinder. I know how stupid this is, but it might offer in some part what I need to be challenged with. Exposition, been identified, sharing personal information, being approached by strangers, having people manifest interest in talking to me. Where I live this app it’s still not a complete cancer container. And having to deal with the assholes proliferating there will, I expect, allow me to develop other social skills that are also needed.

Have any suggestion to my plan? Or want to tell how stupid it is and that I’m doomed to fail? Feel free to either, I don’t care. I can’t stand how things are anymore. Even if this experience kicks me to the ground, at least something happened, at least I’ll be out of this cycle, even if just for a while.

Have any of you ever done something similar? What have you tried to fight against social anxiety?

It's halloween season again.
When I was a kid I used to scour around my school for a pumpkin a couple days before the 31st. Then i'd come up with some kind of plan and steal it without anybody noticing. After i'd carve a pattern in it at home and stick a candle inside. Didn't even put it outside. I just kept it in my kitchen and checked on it all the way through the night until it flickered out finally. Now a days I just buy one. What kind of tradtions do you have?

sam hyde here, internet's busiest music nerd

In the past I have been diagnosed with general anxiety disorder and more specifically social anxiety disorder.
It was so bad I couldn't even look people in the eye and I would start shaking whenever I feel like I am looked at, I would run out of classrooms at university because of anxiety attacks.
I can't remember what I was on back at the time.

I have now started a new course ( which basically guranatees a job ) and it's back. It's more under control because I am more mature and have learned to breathe, try to calm myself and distract myself but it still doesn't let me function as a human being. ( + )

I am too poor to afford therapy but my cousin works as a nurse. I have access to: paroxetine, citalopram, sertraline, venlafaxine, regabalin, tradozone and alprazolam.

( + ) I'm currently anticipating social situations and taking 0.50 of xanax ahead with like half or 3 quarters of an hour but this will not last me long because I'm developing resilience to the drug ( I used to take 0.25 ).

I exercise using the bodyweight fitness app whenever I can. I do not drink coffee, alcohol or energy drinks. I used to drink tea but at some point I realised black tea unsettles me and I kind of stopped.

My concerns are anhedonia and gaining weight because this happened last time.
I plan on informing myself for a few weeks first and I am seeking help.
If you can and want please share this post to communities which you think might me knowledgeable.

The State of Image Boards

I'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.
The only other option is in many ways worse. You constantly have to walk on eggshells and be mindful of everybody's sensibilities. This is the problem with ideology. It infects everything it touches and slowly wrings it to death. It's suffocating. The infected have their head so far up their own ass and they think they're the objective moral authority. They're the saviors and everybody else is wrong and needs to be silenced.
Is this just going to be how things are from now on? Is there any hope of things cooling down and becoming neutral again?

Hi, wow this chan looks spoopy, I like it
R: 35 / I: 27
Ubuu, I need your advice, preferably female. I know there's probably some other place better for this kind of thing, but I basically haven't used the internet other than to lurk on chans, science and programming, some indie game development blogs and the dark side of the japanese web for about 9 years. In other words, this is basically the only place where I even post, and I wouldn't even know about other place where I could write it. Really, you guys are the only people I feel comfortable with to talk about this. It's going to be slightly long so, please, forgive me in advance.

Long story short, I've started college some time ago. I was your typical anon, that is to say, my idea of social skills was very poor, I am a knee-deep weeaboo and I was a loner kid through my adolescence. Luckily, I haven't got any problem with just talking with people, but I do have a real problem on long-term relationships of any sort. How people could maintain contact, go out and share meals and whatever, hell, talk daily was a slightly odd idea for me, mainly because I've never made acquittance with people who would be interested in talking with me that much; the concept has been always slightly alien to me. It just seemed weird, if I had to go out I felt I wouldn't know how to react, engulfed by a feeling of being lost – out of place, as my surroundings would become blurry and I would just sit there with the head low and muted. That's the kind of impression I always got of "going out" with people – and on the very title occasions this happened, it was like that (mostly before college).
Some time forward, about a year after starting college, I managed to start talking with people and forming some basic "contact" – that is to say, we knew each other names and we got together to study – sort of relationship with a bunch of guys I met there, which later grew into what you could call friendship (or at least I believe so, as I said, I suck at judging these things, but I'm fairly sure you can call it that). We shared similar interests so that made it easier for me to relax and actually be a bit of myself with nerd jokes among other things, which increased my self-esteem to talk with other people in other classes too, even of normal things I wouldn't normally care to discuss that much. Mostly out of courtesy, but overall they weren't boring people, and I was also interested in how far I could go handling it (which thankfully, went all right in the end).

Humans and Roosters, Roosters and Humans

Have 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/.
I believe that the most appropriate approximation would be ugh'q'ghyrr-lurh /ʔʌɦʔqəʔ'ɦy:rlʌə:h/ (all vowels glottal).
And what spelling would you suggest?
And why do Indo-European languages(And not only those: Japanese roosters go kokekokkō.) fail to convey actual rooster crows so badly? Any guesses?

Thought Experiments

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 fucking hate minimalism with a passion. Just thinking about it drives me nuts. Minimalism everything from interior design to technology is a cancer. It feels sterile and it has no room for personal expression of the designer. It is conformist in nature. It confuses simplicity with meaninglessness. Take Window's 10's blue screen. It gives you practically no information on what actually went wrong with your computer. It insults your intelligence. It's not sleek, it's nothing. Minimalism is supposed to be a means of compensating for modern distractions, but it's actually just an extension of modern empty-headedness. There is nothing in minimalist design to appreciate or think about. It's cold and incites no warm emotions. This conformist, lazy aesthetic is constantly being pushed on people all the time. It's like a form of brain-washing. It eats away at you and makes you just as empty as it. Design exists to look good, make you notice it, and give you a specific feeling. Minimalism does none of those things. It is the anti-design.

Minecraft Lost Cities Mod

I 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.

There are skyscrapers, highways, bridges, tunnels, subways, and other structures. Forever. Treasure boxes and mob spawners are scattered randomly about, making it a very hostile world with infinite exploration value.

Fringe was such a fucked up piece of shit. It was the less successful project of the guy who made Lost while he was still a massive deal. The depths, the depths this show goes to… Basically its a crime drama that tries to pander to conspiracy nuts. The show starts by the female, blond mc taking out this generic mad scientist from a mental institution to try and solve the first of an endless series, and downward spiral of supernatural crimes connected to multiple, competing conspiracies. The coocky scientist constantly talks about gibberish and the writers try so painfully hard to make him endearing. He'll ask the black Harvard student assistant whose name he can't remember to get him pudding-pops and fanta soda or some shit constantly. That's another thing, he refuses to work out of any lab except for the one he used to use when he taught at Harvard. His grandson is a genius, but he's a super special genius because he forged his MIT certificate. He's not just one of the sheeple. Even though he's just some bland guy the show talks about him like he's really shifty and Machiavellian. The lead actress has no personality, she's as bland as it gets.

Every episode has the same formula where some supernatural thing will happen, the scientist will pull a solution out of his ass, that he apparently made fifty years ago, and the day is saved. This show is, "science fiction", by the way. The sheer amount of pseudo-science is ridiculous and the show tries to explain it by saying that the laws of physics are being bent because a parallel universe is slowly colliding with ours or some shit. From that point on the ongoing, "plot", is endless twists and turns and loopty loops and dumb chess analogies. At one point the female lead's partner gets replaced with a robot copy from the parallel universe after her first partner turns into slime or something. Also, she has the dead partner's memories because she entered his brain before he died or something by going into a sensory deprivation chamber and sticking some metal wires into her neck. And then at one point, she is switched with her parallel universe counterpart, and it's treated like a rape analogy. She doesn't know that she was replaced because her memories were flipped.

At several points in the show, they make it seem like everything is going to change and the whole dynamic is going to flipped on its head, before changing their mind, and going back to the status-quo. At one point, the mc gets teleported by getting hit by a car or something. The team gets disbanded, but weird crimes start happening again, so they make a new team with a mexican female lead this time. The next episode they just think of some way to get rid of the character that they literally just introduced and bring back the original mc out of nowhere. The grandson later saves the world and it feels like the show is going to end, but it doesn't. The grandson didn't sacrifice himself, he got teleported to an alternative future by the dooms-day device he stopped. The show makes you think it's going to be in the future, but the very next episode he somehow gets transported back, but he's invisible and nobody remembers him.

He then becomes real again or some shit, and even though he doesn't know if the mc is his mc or not, he tries to start a relationship with her, and somehow this makes her get fake memories that are like the real memories because the mc has special powers by the way. This show doesn't directly say that 9/11 was a conspiracy, but they do make the parallel world still have the twin towers. The height of retardation is when the scientist's old friend is dying, so they try to go into his mind to put him in a computer. The whole episode is shot in terrible cgi where they just run around looking for the mc inside of this guy's mind. And then imaginary zombies attack them for some reason, and they ride in a blimp to escape from them. Their plan doesn't work though so the guy dies.

But, wait, before he died he put a, "soul beacon" inside of the mc, so he possess her. It's like the writers had a competition to see who could make the show as stupid as possible. It has to be seen to be believed where this fucking thing goes.

ITT: stupid shit you spent way too much time on for no reason

i’m guilty of this heavily, so i’ll just use one example.
I literally spent half an afternoon writing a lengthy analysis on the anatomy and byproducts of fairies (the 2hu fairies) and how they’re seen in both fairy and youkai/human culture. all developed on my own, mind you, none of this was established before.
To save you the pain reading the whole thing, i’ll skim it down to the bare bones for those who are curious. Still gonna probably be a hefty read.

essentially, the main part of fairy anatomy boils down to fairies not having any real genetalia, instead having their wings be the erogenous, more sensitive part of their body. since fairies don’t exactly reproduce, nor have the need to, it’s simply just a stand in for reproduction in fairy culture. Fairies also passively emit various pheromones from their wings, which coagulate over time into this flaky, dandruff like material colloquially referred to as Dust. Dust, being a delicacy due to faries being too stubborn to stay still long enough to collect much, is heavily desired by human and youkai medicine makers alike, who seek to use certain kinds of Dust in their products for various reasons.

tl;dr: fairies have no genitals, their wings are the stand in. Since fairies don’t reproduce, it’s considered taboo to rub them in fairy culture. Fairy wings also build up a pheromone residue, nicknamed Dust. Medicine makers can’t get enough of that shit, and pay top dollar for a decent sample.

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 as where her dead mother was even though she begged them not to. The apartment didn't have any spare rooms and my grandparents didn't want to let her in their room. Later, when my half-aunt was an adult and needed a place to stay, they refused to have her. After she got on her feet, they then started demanding that she gives them money regularly. She did and sent it via her son the first time. When he came up to my grandmother while she was with her friends outside her apartment, she just grabbed the envelope from him and didn't say another word. He refused to deliver it in the future. My grandfather's mother was a petite and extremely beautiful. She was an extreme alcoholic though and died young, never telling anybody who my grandfather's father was. Before dying though, she remarried to a somewhat wealthy man who ended up raising my grandfather. One day, when the wealthy man was very old and close to dying, my grandfather, grandmother, and my mother decided to pay him a visit, which my grandfather had never done before that. Much to their disappoint, he had remarried to some gold-digger. He left all his money to her. My grandfather didn't die of any illness or anything specific. Right before death he was in fairly good condition. One day though his body just gave up and he rapidly declined. He couldn't walk without help anymore. Later, he just collapsed and was laid to bed. He even had to be rolled around to be washed. He eventually became responsive again, but quickly lost all his senses. He asked to be driven to their old house, which was demolished years ago and other such things. On that bed, the last thing he asked for was to be buried in a really expensive suit. A week before dying, he was invited to some important party. My grandfather hated parties and always looked for any excuse to avoid them. I guess he held true to form. Tell me about your dead relatives ubuu.

There's a legend that the violinist Giuseppe Tartini kept himself in a room to practice almost constantly for years. When he reconnected with the world, it's said that it was hard to believe how much better he had become. If you could lock yourself in a room for a year to practice a single skill with zero social or economic repercussions, would you do it and what skill would you choose? Here's the rules: All of your living expenses are paid for, but you can't leave your room for any reason other than to use the bathroom, you can't opt out once you start, you cannot have access to any form of entertainment other than, you must spend as much time as possible practicing.

I know this might sound edgy, but here I go anyway. I've been thinking about human predictability a lot lately. It seems to me that with a lot of things people seem to follow some kind of program, like their actions and words are automated and not their own. This is both on a day to day basis, and during unusual events. It's not just going through the motions, it's too exact. Let me use an inevitable event as an example: the death of Miyazaki. Thinking about this is actually what triggered this train of thought. When Miyazaki dies, I can already tell what will happen in far too exact detail. At first everybody will be in shock, but then they'll once again go into autopilot… Big news sites and tabloids alike will all publish the same article as each other about what a great man and inspiration he was and how he shaped the dreams of children and all of that white noise. People on social media will talk about they watched his movies as kids and how upset they are. Some people will make memorial videos on youtube talking about how great he was and they'll all go on and on like they're reading the same script, but slightly doctored to give the illusion of diversity. Ghibli will make a statement about it and maybe even make something in memorial to him. Right after that blip in time, it'll be gone and people will almost instantly snap back into their regular programming. That's it. It didn't even happen, and yet the feeling of it is already palpable. I wouldn't be too surprised if all of those articles were pre-written. My point is it's not like Ghibli will use their remaining funds to build a plane and kamikaze it into the United Nations head quarters. This example is just on the big scale, but I see it everywhere. Am I alone in this, or does anybody else feel it?

When I was a kid I used to kill ants for fun. The methods in which I did this were peculiar enough for me to want to post about them. Just to be clear, I have never hurt any other animals, nor have I wanted to do so as a kid. Besides insects and spiders, I actually love animals. Ants were in a strange sort of limbo for me because while they weren't large enough for me to be afraid of them, I still could not feel even a shred of empathy for them. Being in this limbo is what allowed killing them to be fun to me.

My favorite weapon of choice was a serrated butter knife and my favorite method of killing was to very slightly tap them with the flat part of the blade. Even the tiniest bit of force would cause sever damage to them. I would scout for a victim and once they were selected let them know of my presence by tapping the knife on the ground near them. I would chase them around for a while before finally landing a blow. After the first tap they wouldn't be able to run anymore, but they would still keep moving. A lot of the time their antenna would be bent and some of their appendages would be broken. I would let them walk around a little before tapping them again and again and again until they stopped moving. Here's the first interesting observation that I made about their behavior. If an ant is still capable of moving it's body, but it is sure of its own death, it will curl up into a ball and twitch until it stops moving. Most of the time I tapped them to death before this could occur. The second method of killing would be to simply cut them in half, which required more coordination than I thought it would. I was surprised to discover that if cut low enough, they would continue to walk around after. On some occasions, I thought I saw some kind of trail of flesh following behind them.

I discovered a few, "human", like traits in the ants behavior, although, I may be projecting. For instance, ants that have been cut in half seemed to display more erratic behavior than tapped ants. They were more aimless and frantic in their movements. The reaction of ants to them was also far greater than tapped ants. Ants seem to show some form of fear. Besides killing ants, I also used the knife to both illicit a reaction from them and push them from one location to another. When two healthy ants were pushed into each other they always panicked greatly when put into contact with each other. This panic was far greater when one of the ants was damaged in some way. When simply observing ants without interfering, I noticed that while healthy ants occasionally stopped to interact with other, they never did this with damaged ants, who they seemed to actively avoid. I noticed that ants who have taken notice of me would sometimes stop and possibly look up at me. Sometimes, instead of slowly killing an ant with tapping, I would slowly cut it to pieces with the knife when it is immobilized. Trying to cut off an ants legs while it was still capable of moving was far too much of a pain to try to do regularly. Another method was to grind the ant against the rough space between my kitchen tiles with the knife, which resulted in the ant being shredded into tiny dots in a straight line. Killing an immobilized ant in this manner in front of another immobilized ant seemed to illicit a frantic reaction and greater fear of being into that space. The most resilient moving part of an ant is the antenna. Even when immobilized and almost totally dead, the antenna would still frantically move regardless of how bent and broken they were. The only way to stop the movement of the antenna was to either cut them off or kill the ant.

The large scale behavior noticeably shifted after enough of their numbers were eliminated. If in a small area there was a mass grave of ant corpses, regardless of the number of crumbs, some ants would avoid the area upon sight. I saw what seemed to be shock in one ant who unexpectedly encountered such a scene and promptly fled. The area that the ants occupied changed depending on the killings.

The 4400 is just a shitty version of Jojo. I don't know whether you heard of the 4400, here's a summary: 4400 people are abducted by aliens over varying points of history. All of them are returned to earth at the same time and they're all the same age as when they were abducted. When they land they have special powers for some reason. Every person has a unique power that is somewhat reflective of their personality. The show itself follows a special police force made to monitor the 440 and apprehend any of them if they cause trouble. The show starts of being episodic with them finding and arresting various dangerous 4400 members. Shit starts to get more convoluted when scientists figure out that the powers are caused by some green ooze and if people inject that into them self they can either develop powers or die. Somehow this green ooze start being distributed illegally. The police team now also has to combat any person who developed powers and uses them for criminal actives. All of the powers are kind of dull like making people do what you want, or killing people around you when you get stressed, or never forgetting anything. Nothing very interesting. People don't use them in creative ways. The story gets more and more convoluted with time travel and mind control and eventually some guy gets the power to make the people around him either die or also get powers and the whole thing becomes a massive cluster fuck that didn't even get a proper conclusion because it got cancelled. Has anybody else watched this train wreck?

What's the most perverted/depraved/shameful thing that you have ever done? From junior high to freshman year of high school I was in a kind of, "weird phase". When my sister was still in high school and I was in seventh grade we had over a German exchange student for a week as my sister was taking German and participated in the exchange program. The German girl spent almost all of her time shopping for stuff at the mall(as that was the most notable thing to do over here in the states), so she spent little to no time actually in our house. When I got home from school one day I was totally alone and after a bit of debating with myself, decided to take one of the exchange student'a panties and see what they smelled like. This was less because I actually wanted to get some kind of sexual gratification out of it, and more about the thrill. At that age I enjoyed the excitement of petty theft, bizarre pranks and generally sadistic things. Now as she was guest in our house, she didn't just leave dirty panties around her room, so I had to reach into her drawer(which she was borrowing from me) and pull out whatever pair I could find(which were almost certainly clean. I then pushed them against my nostrils and inhaled deeply. Looking back on this I could have done a lot worse. It's not like I rubbed my dick on it. Even if it was clean, knowing that she would eventually wear it would almost be more perverse. If i'm going to be 120% honest I regret that I didn't do that. The drawer she borrowed was broken when it was returned to me, so I don't feel too guilty about it or anything. Story 2: I wanted to take German 2 in eighth grade since my sister went down that route, but I didn't take German 1 the previous year. German 2 also wasn't offered in high school so I opted to take summer lessons to skip ahead. It was a nice arrangement since the teacher would actually come to my house every other day. Now she wasn't an attractive woman by any means. Being Turkish, short, middle-aged, and wrinkled, she didn't exactly appeal to my in that way. At the time though, I had a sort of fetish for having somebody trying to teach my something without me understanding any of what they were saying. I didn't even know about this until the lessons started, but every other day, for a straight hour and half, I would have a raging hard-on as soon as this woman opened her mouth and started yammering on and one about what seemed like total gibberish to me. It's good that our dining room table wasn't see-through. Story 3: Close to the end of middle school I was loitering around an empty hallway as I usually did around this time of year and somewhere on the floor I spotted a quarter which I promptly picked up and pocketed. A few minutes later, from across the hall I could see the Principal turning around the corner and starting to close the distance between us. I had a pretty good relationship with him and he seemed to like me okay. He was a kind of doughy, really, overly nice guy. His favorite tv show was America's Funniest Home Videos. He was kind of southern in his oh shucks kind of mentality(we lived in the North East). In that moment I remembered that it was his birthday. Last year I got him some cheap, shitty, uncomfortable earbuds. Just for the hell of it, I exchanged greeting with him and then offered him the quarter that I just picked from off the floor while saying happy birthday. Seeing him pause for just a moment. slowly pick it from my palm and sort of mumble thank you anon while still trying to smile really got a kick out of me. Last Story:In freshman year of high school I was severely sleep deprived. As a consequence of this I would frequently get erections during class. At first I got rid of them after a few minutes by thinking about lemon party or something like that. but I eventually stopped bothering. This wasn't really that big of a problem as nobody notices that kind of thing when you're sitting at a desk. In English(first period) the boy in the seat in front of and to the left of me did start to notice though. He was a kind of spacey, but athletic type. When it first happened he had shocked, wide eyes and he stared at it for minutes at a time. He then did this same exact thing every time. It unnerved me just a little at first, but eventually I kind of started liking the idea that the guy must be enraptured or something. It seemed amusing to me that some guy would be interested in my genitals so I started assuming that that must be the case.
You now know my shame, so please let me know yours.

Media Compilation Project

Crossposting from Lainchan (https://lainchan.org/r/res/3260.html#3260). I've been wanting to compile a large variety of "eye-opening" media, and then to organize it by increasing gradation.

For me, there was much media that helped me to see things as I do now, to question things, be wary of the government, and see the various flaws in society. Anything that encourages free thought or distrust in assumptions/governments is what I am aiming for.

My idea is to organize it in such a way that a "program" can be made of it to introduce to people to help them to "wake up". Intro-tier would have to be "accessible" enough as not to cause any conditioned aversion toward it, and to gradually increase the concepts as you move higher on the list.

As far as the media medium itself, music and movies are better introductions than interactive media or books/podcasts.

Here's a sample of my current, unorganized list:

Movies

>The Matrix (and sequels?)


>ARQ


>Contact


>District 9


>Fight Club


>Johnny Got His Gun


>Soylent Green


>The Truman Show


>Avatar(?) (Not air-bender)


>Repo Men


Music

As far as intro-tier music goes- easily accessible, discernible lyrics, and subtle, thought-provoking themes (or perhaps just music that strays from standard musical trends in any way, but perhaps this works better for a higher tier). Basically, to subversively convey ideas and plant "seeds of doubt", to make conditionally foreign ideas more accessible and familiar. Similar to what current media is doing by forceful immersion.

>Crystal Castles


>Amnesia Scanner


>Front Line Assembly


>Machinae Supremacy


>Mankind Is Obsolete


>Oceanlab


>Brendan Byrnes


>Liar (Romanian)


>Holly Herndon


>Blanck Mass


Books

Intro-tier would be mostly fiction, and higher tiers would include non-fiction.

>1984 - George Orwell


>Brave New World - Aldous Huxley


>Fight Club - Chuck Paluhniuk


>Anthem - Ayn Rand


>Atlas Shrugged - Ayn Rand


>Lord of the Flies - William Golding


>Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte


>The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood


>The Giver - Lois Lowry


>Gathering Blue - Lois Lowry


>Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card (Perhaps series?)


>Fehrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury


>Dune - Frank Herbert (Series?)


Anime

>Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood


>Welcome to the NHK


>Ghost in the Shell (1996)


>Animatrix (?)


>Neon Genesis Evangelion

Online Friends

How? I always see people saying things like 'I only have online friends', but I have never knowingly spoke to the same person twice, let alone befriend them. It especially bamboozles me how people can make friends in sites without identities, which encompasses most of the places I go.

Just to be clear, I'm not asking for friends here as I don't think I'm capable or worthy at the present time, but for when I am I want to know where to start.
