The fact that you are addessing this in this place, and this board, means you're an outsider that doesn't even know our culture. Politics whatsoever don't really have a place here, and the only other thread with anything minimally related to "lefties" is a cancerous thread about other chans where a few faggots complain about some shitty 8ch board.
Complains go to sugg, politics stay outside, if you don't like it, leave.

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?

Be the change you wish to see in the world sounds good on paper, but in reality it's hard to do it when everyone constantly pushes you to your limit, right?

It's okay. I feel the same way. However, it's best to try and look at things with an open mind and be forgiving. Be smart about it, of course, because some people really are shitty and will never change, but a lot of times people are just dumb because that's human nature. We're inclined to all try to be the one in the group who does the least because we're lazy, and the majority of our thoughts are selfish. (60 to 40 ratio if I recall correctly.) At the same time, though, being kind makes you happy, so I think it's good to be generous and do favors for people. Also, hang out with like-minded people so you don't get frustrated as much. And take breaks from the internet, everyone screams all the time here and your brain needs to rest. That'll help a bit.

I'm not very articulate, but hopefully my point gets across.

Learn how to derive enjoyment out of life without other people being directly involved. I feel the exact same about people, but I accept it. I accept that human beings just are a lack-luster source of happiness. Get a hobby. Focus on yourself and enjoy life. Don't try to make other people happy. That's just a waste of your energy.

Thoughts on tvtropes. I think it's shit. None of the page titles make any sense or suggest what they're talking about. All of the articles are mostly just made up of referring to other tropes by their confusing, made-up names so the whole thing is just nonsense and worthless.

The worst part about tvtropes is that I actually like the concept. Patterns and cliches do exist in ficion and I do think that that could spawn an actually interesting encyclopedia. Maybe the history of the trope and how its origins and development were affected by the real world could be discussed to add some more substance, or maybe instead of just describing a trope, there could also be an explanation of the motivations writers have for using that trope and how it could be done better or worse. There's a million better ways to make a better tvtropes, but to make them you have to actually rub two brain cells together so it doesn't become a lazy clusterfuck.
>literally going on TVTropes and picking out trope pages that fit your premise
Oh, god, people actually do that? That is hands down the worst way to write a story that I have ever heard. I heard once from somewhere that good artists borrow, and great artists steal; they force their accumulated influences through their own creative process. Picking out tropes to make some fanfiction tier garbage is like imagining that you're asking somebody else to ask another guy to borrow something for a quick second.

I agree with a lot of this. Good characters are three dimensional, well-written, and complex. Their personalities should not consist of jargon that makes up a basic, overdone archetype. In my opinion, tvtropes is good if you want to read a quick summary of a work, but not much else. People shouldn't be applying tropes to real life.

>There's a million better ways to make a better tvtropes, but to make them you have to actually rub two brain cells together so it doesn't become a lazy clusterfuck.


Tvtropes was actually worse a few years back, when Fast Eddie ran it. Recently, the site was revamped to get rid of shit like troper tales. It's a lot better than it used to be, but still has godawful pages like the ones posted here. Personally I wish the YN article would be rewritten and the WMG page done away with. It would be much better in that case.

>Oh god, people actually do that?


I feel like only people who use tvtropes would do that. Competent authors actually put effort into writing their cast.

If you don't already know of this, you may be interested in the Aarne-Thompson classification system, it's specifically for folktales and groups them together in stuff they have in common. I think you're onto something, folklorists and other areas of study might already do this, without the tropey autism and rambling. Yeah, I personally 'wrote by tropes' myself once and nothing came of it because it didn't magically gel into a plot like I was expecting. What I ended up having was a genre written down, character -designs- (not even characters) and a shitload of tabs open on tropes I wanted to include or 'subvert'. Didn't even have a synopsis from start to end, any chapter summaries or even a single event down. I genuinely thought what I was doing was part of the process of writing but it was procrastinating at best, delaying the birth of whatever trope-infested spawn I envisioned at the time.
>good artists borrow, and great artists steal
Funny you mention that, I was going to say something like that in the post you replied to but I wasn't sure how it went. I thought it was like "good artists steal, great artists get away with it" but maybe that's a tongue-in-cheek warped version picked up from somewhere.
>I feel like only people who use tvtropes would do that. Competent authors actually put effort into writing their cast.
Definitely. Well, I would've said I was trying as a troper but it's seriously misguided effort.

I haven't heard of it before, but it seems very interesting. It's definitely not perfect, but it's miles ahead of tv trope's cluster fuck approach. The longer, but more descriptive names are a lot better than something short, but made up. I prefer Cruel mother-in-law plans death of daughter-in-law to the dobbly foobly. I find it interesting that there's no index for character types. I guess that might fall under motifs. It still has problems like looking at stories on a macro-level instead of delving into deeper analysis and stories being grouped into one tale type despite having having a lot of differences. It's also just an index system, so I don't think there's any articles attached to the index entries. It could definitely work as a model for how things should be done though. Thanks for sharing.

Anyone else have a sleeping disorder?
I have narcolepsy.
It's kind of funny to me because I've love Yume Nikki since I was like 12, and even though I've grown up, and it's been years, and it's faded into the back of my mind, it's always been important to me.
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.

Since I was a child it's taken me several hours to fall asleep without medication. In middle school or so I started taking Melatonin each night, which dropped the time it takes me to fall asleep to about one to two hours. I have been taking Melatonin for over 10 years. Then a few years ago I added Marijuana, which brought me to between half an hour and one hour fairly consistently. I am a little jealous of people who can hit the pillow and start snoring within 15 minutes.

Unless I am utterly exhausted, I usually can't fall asleep any faster than this. Thankfully the nights are few where I can't sleep at all. Most of the nights I am unable to sleep are those where I have specific anxieties or excitement about the following day. The day before a convention is a good example of a time when insomnia might kick in and prevent me from falling asleep.

Have you tried listening to music while you try to fall asleep? I find having something calming, yet complex gives me something to focus on so I'm not left alone with my thoughts and the ringing in my ears.

i don't think i qualify as having a sleeping disorder but i take trazodone every night. i'm not sure what would happen if i tapered off at this point. it helps a lot. every time i go to this walk-in clinic to refill my prescription, though, the doctor tries to tell me that i might be reliant on it and that it's not the healthiest option as if i don't already know that

it's just… why would i have been prescribed it by my family doctor if i didn't need it? just gimme my pills and think twice about telling someone they should go off their medication. seems unwise

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?

Yep. Christianity = God. How fucking retarded are you? A system of belief is not the same thing as a a metaphysical entity. Did you pass the fifth grade?

You do know that there's still child prostitutes in some parts of the world? If the great Romans and other pagans did it, why wouldn't we do it now? Tell me.
>Being remembered by people from the future that are irrelevant to you is something very important
Without shit being recorded, culture has less weight to it. New generations can't get as much from it. Culture is not a means to an end. It has nothing to do with wanting people to remember me. You're pulling that out of your ass.
>the foreign jewish tale
The tale isn't white people's legacy, what was inspired by it is you ignoramus.
>Cucktianity is so good it needed to genocide whites (great massacres and executions of unarmed men who refused to convert in britain for instance) to be put in place. Looks like great stuff for whites!
Greeks and Romans totally weren't just as violent about equally stupid shit. Before it was being killed for no reason or land, and then it was being killed for not converting. At least in one you can actually save yourself instead of being killed for living in the same place as a disliked group. I'd say that's a step up. If you haven't realized that pagans, especially the less advanced ones were far more brutal, you have no clue what you are talking about.

That both does not accurately describe modern liberalism specifically or is in any way related to my first post. You ran out of things to say pretty quick after you went through your laundry list of talking points. You can't actually address a point directly, you have to always side-step to regurgitate something somebody else already said.

And you're getting all of that from me thinking that Jews aren't responsible for everything wrong in western society now and Christian culture is more important, relevant, influential and complex than pagan cultures such as the vikings'. Wow.

I understand that you present normal behavior vs non-normal behavior, but what you don't realize is that with this analogy you are implying "normal" people engage in these "weird behaviors" towards aspies on purpose because they have aspergers, and then in the next post you tell me "normal people" get pissed off when aspies do this "weird shit". It's just too confusing because the information doesn't correlate and your point doesn't stand out at all. You're complaining that normal people pisses aspies on purpose by doing weird things but also telling me that they get mad when aspies engage in weird behavior, just what the hell is the point there? That's just people getting pissed when others do stupid shit. It doesn't have anything to do with what we were discussing just now.

No, that's Winnie the Pooh in a pink wig.

>Also, stop ignoring my posts.


When did I do that?

>Are you in high school by any chance. That's extremely important for to know in this discussion and for me to understand you.


No I'm not, haven't been for a while now.
