what were your childhood dreams? Friend 09/12/2021 (Sun) 08:37:44 No.2742 [Reply]
when you were a child, didn't the world seem more fascinating than it is right now? at least for me, it made me eager to explore and experience the world. this lead me to pick up some hobbies, and also lead me to my first childhood dream of becoming an airplane pilot... but sadly, that dream remains unfulfilled as of today. but what about you, /kind/? what were your childhood dreams, and were you able to fulfill them? if you haven't, where are you now? are you satisfied with your life?

>>3142 >all life is equal and priceless Well, if a brainless failed abortion is equal to a human, then a human and a bug necessarily have to be equal as well. Either all life is equal or none is. Calling oneself "pro-life" without embracing this truth is inconsistent and hypocritical. >I had terrible entomophobia and started learning about insects to overcome my fear. I almost know that feel. I don't have a proper phobia, but I can't touch any bug larger than a fly, except maybe a moth since those are particularly harmless. It works like a phobia at close range, just not from afar. I checked it recently and couldn't touch a spider. I still like them and let relatively large spiders live in my room. Cold country, so not that large.
>>3139 That depends on your team. I have a remote job, with relatively educated people, in arguable first world. I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't get in trouble for opinions that aren't any of: >anti-feminist >utterly deranged, like "gays/atheists should be taxed extra/forcibly converted/removed" >utterly retarded, like the above >incompatible with normal morality, like "life is evil and the universe should be cleansed of it" We talk politics pretty often, but it's safe here. Except for that feminism thing. I can see it working completely differently in less "diverse" places. I can see shit like this happening: >third worlders openly spewing moronic shit about gays >in a country with free speech, atheists openly shitting on christianity and beings holy to it >people who hate one political party openly shitting on their voter base, knowing boss is on their side and so on. It's unpleasant to just sit there and listen to your groups being attacked. Doable, but it can really ruin your day.
>>3157 >Well, if a brainless failed abortion is equal to a human I think that's taking things a bit far in regards to the point anon was trying to make. The bug question and the death of our natural ecology isn't something that has to be taking place. It's a failure of the somewhat arbitrary systems man has arranged or have emerged to support man due to a lack of foresight. So, in regards to that, the platitude of "all life is equal and priceless" should obviously make sense. >then a human and a bug necessarily have to be equal >Either all life is equal or none To really get to the heart of the matter in regards to these things can be difficult because of the language that we use. The statement "all life is equal" as an empty platitude can function like a sentence fragment or an unfinished line of code that will not run. "All life is equal..." in regards to what? "All life is unequal..." in regards to what? The devil is in those details and that is where the focus must be. I think that if man looks back in history and at the ecological damage that has been caused by the use of unnecessary toxic chemicals and pollution, it should be apparent, if an honest assessment is made, that things could have been done differently and nothing of value would have been lost. Within that context, the platitude of "All life is equal and priceless" need not be anything worth quarreling about. Sorry if I've misinterpreted or misrepresented the point you were trying to make. Go team bugs! When I was young I dreamed of living in a high tech megalopolis and watching a cyberpunk future unfold before my eyes. I now regret that decision and plan to relocate to a more rural environment. Down with team bugman!
>Calling oneself "pro-life" without embracing this truth is inconsistent and hypocritical. >>3157 "Inconsistent and hypocritical" are pretty widespread. If they were actually "pro-life" they would stop blocking the abolition of the death penalty, especially after the first innocent fully grown human was exonerated from death row, which happened a long time ago. Instead, it's so important to them to maintain the death penalty that they fight for it in a system that occasionally executes an innocent fully grown human. In countries like the USA that still have the death penalty they immediately out themselves as being anti-choice rather than "pro-life", all they want is to go back to a time when women were property.
>>3165 >all they want is to go back to a time when women were property *ugh* what could of been...

teh isometric perspective thread! Friend 06/11/2021 (Fri) 00:43:27 No.208 [Reply]
hey /kind/! i feel that isometric artworks are underappreciated as an artistic medium, so i want to share with the board some artworks that i find cool. other than that, feel free to use this thread to talk about anything related to the isometric/axonometric perspective, such as video games featuring the perspectives or other things!

Does anyone have advice on learning basic video editing? Even something as simple as removing the sound in part of a video and replacing it with another song for instance.
Open file (17.11 KB 310x322 8031407.png)
>>3020 For specifically that task there's guaranteed to be a ton of short tutorials on youtube or on the web in general. It's a simple task that would just require trimming and replacing an audio track in the timeline. Honestly youtube in general is a pretty good site for learning video editing, I personally don't think you *need* anything more. If you want to make it a bit sleeker you could however learn a bit about audio mixing, however you could do that in the video editor itself or in a seperate audio editing program. Sorry if this answer doesn't seem very helpful but I really do believe that youtube (and general online searching) is really all you need to get a good grasp of video editing. Good luck anon, I believe in you.
>>3020 I always wondered how much work goes into making a YouTube Poop. Some of them like they must be really time intensive.

Cute story!
Cute! I like it, especially the idea of a family of two programmers involved with 4chan adopting children, would make for some interesting stories. What the hell is Moot even up to nowadays?

What do you wish for, /kind/?
100 posts and 28 images omitted.
>>2529 Glad to see I am not the only one.
I want to live without worrying about the future, maybe some good friends and help other people; but I don't dare to dream too much. >>2529 Funny, those desires seem almost opposite to me, one is of loyalty and in service to a greater cause, the other one of safety and intimacy with someone else. I'm willing to believe someone could have both.
I wish to no longer have my learning disorder and nor do I want to have my bipolar disorder. It feels extremely agonizing that I want to do certain things, but it feels painfully heart wrenching that I can't achieve it due to not being able to fully grasp it.
>>2590 Learning disorder? I don't want to come off as annoying, but have you tried multiple approaches to learning? I know that reading things won't help me learn unless I actually put it into practice or explain it in my own words. >nor do I want to have my bipolar disorder. Yeah... it really sucks. It's led me to be a very inconsistent person in all regards. I'd much rather be consistently mediocre than this shit. >it feels painfully heart wrenching that I can't achieve it due to not being able to fully grasp it. I set my goals relatively low. I've already failed to achieve many things, either on my own part, due to others, or both. I don't want that disappointment, so I'm only going to set my sights on things within reach within a month or so's time.

a kinder world... Friend 07/07/2021 (Wed) 08:37:07 No.1186 [Reply] [Last]
as of now, a lot of bad things happen in this world. for example, violent wars still happen, many people lead unhappy lives, and many governments have problems with violent crime and corruption. but in the future, do you think we could eventually resolve those problems and actually live in a kinder, happier, and dare i say it, a more perfect world?

>>1405 That may be what you meant, but you mentioned "directly hurting", which is a different thing. You can do plenty of evil without doing anything direct. Same for good. >changing the world simply doesn't work And yet the world changes constantly, often because enough people want it to change. I'd say it differently: try to fix the world on your own level, not all at once. Small results now over big results maybe-never.
These problems are just the manifestation of human traits and will never be eliminated by enacting some system. Best we can do is accept them and try reduce harm but all this stuff will always be going on desu
>>1438 I think there are plenty of systems that could be enacted to eliminate human traits. Accepting flaws is good, moving to correct them is better!
>>2437 I guess you can try to zap the brain or lobotomize people outright, but that would be throwing out the baby with the bath water. You don't have to accept flaws, you accept the fact that they exist and are fundamental to the human experience and then work around them as best as possible. >eliminate human traits
