Value will be defined as anything which contributes to a sense of satisfaction and well being.

What are among the most Valuable posts you've read, and how does it compare to the average Value you get out of a typical surf?

With the above answered internally (or explicit if desired), are you happy with the average or do you hope to find more fulfillment/extract more Value somehow?
If hoping, how will you proceed?

aliens invented anime??

friends!! i-i have something profound to tell you!

has it ever occurred to you that the humans you see in anime… might not actually be human? for example, characters that you see in anime tend to have oversized heads and eyes, unnatural hair colors, as well as tiny noses… isn't that suspiciously nonhuman?

i suspect there is a hidden reason behind anime's nonhuman art style. i surmise that reason to be this: the art style of anime is a result of an alien civilization's plot to subtly influence human thinking on a global scale and expose us to its alien culture. if this is true, then it would explain the global popularity of anime and the quality of the artwork. it explains why anime featuring futuristic mecha, tentacle aliens, and animal girls do so well on the market.

this also implies that we've been under alien influence for some time as the first modern anime, 'Astro Boy', was released in the 1950s. this time period also coincides with a suspicious increase in UFO sightings that happened during that time as well…

so /kind/, now you know this, how do you feel about these aliens? what do you think their motives are? are you still going to consume anime and manga knowing you're under the influence of the aliens?

Video Games

Has anyone played anything new and exciting (to themselves)?

I tried out BallisticNG yesterday with friends. I always thought those sorts of racing games looked really bad to play, even though I do enjoy traditional land vehicle racing. I ended up having a lot of fun it even if I'm not very good. A welcome change of pace as I've been pretty bored of a games lately.

Hey friends, I woke up today feeling most unwell so I decided to stay at home and cough my lungs out rather than do it at uni.

/kind/ stream

Hopefully kindmin is okay with a thread for this.

How does /kind/ feel about getting together and watching some anime or something next weekend? I thought it could be a fun idea to have a stream just for us. It's been a few years since I ran a stream but I don't think anything has changed since then on the technical side, so it should be easy to set up.

Feel free to make suggestions for what you want to watch. I was personally thinking of something like Minami-ke, but I will take other recommendations into consideration.

Rainy days

Does /kind/ like it when it's raining? Since many of us probably don't go outside that often, (at least this friend here lives almost like a hermit) heavy rain is kinda soothing to my few stressed out neurons, that survived all I had done to my brain. It's nature's white noise, but so much better than all those noise apps. Even those that play rain noise or whatever. Just can't beat the real thing. All you have to do to get high on "bad" weather is a blanket and a nice cup of herbal tea.

How does /kind/ spend rainy days? I'm curious.

Has liberalism failed?


Early Christian/Roman notion of liberty = Ruling oneself.
Needs moderation. Needs to be actively nurtured.

Modern notion of liberty after 16c = I do what I want.
Just like the imagined prehistoric man.

This guy says the change of notion of liberalism spawned multiple chain effects to spawn horrible modern society, which polarizes peoples political thoughts.

The left and right is about leaning on government or market to make modern liberal human, but government and market both limits the liberation of human being.

Fun clip.

So, I have a pretty weird relationship with music. I pretty much grew up isolated and never made an active effort to check out any on my own. If anything I felt a sort of shame of doing so, sort of like seeing myself as a wannabe if that makes sense. Then I grew up a bit more and I started listening to patriotic songs and anthems on youtube….. the same ones over and over again, that is. It wasn't until recently that I changed that a little but it is still a little hard to expand my horizons beyond what I already know. And even then I do not even know that much farther than I was introduced to by an (overseas) friend. Also I know 0 songs I like in my native language, and only a handful in the english language, so that does not help much in terms of fitting in (not that that's ever been my focus, though).

What about you?

Making friends

Where have you guys made good friends, generally? I’ve come to realize the world is so evil and harsh at times it’s hard to come across people that don’t have those hedgehog spikes of impoliteness, hostility, or just modern evils like addictions that corrode the character. I’m sorry if this comes the wrong way, but I really want to make some new friends and I’m not sure where to find these people. It’s starting to get pretty lonely in here.

What have you been working on, friends?
Over the past months I've been trying to be more productive compared to before. I've started journaling my actions and events I considered to be important in the day, so that I may have coherent thoughts whenever I want to express myself. And complementing this activity, I've started to write a novel(it's trash, even I can tell) with a goal of 100 words per day or so, and rewriting and resketching the ideas to use in it while reading a book of how to make an actual proper novel.
What have you started doing something new in the recent months?

A thread to help depressed friends

I opened a similar thread a few days ago and it turned out super depressing and not wholesome at all. - Since I thought it is no help to any friend here, I deleted it shortly after. This is now my second try to create a space for the troubled souls and depressed friends /kind/ that don't see a way out of their misery yet.

Dear friends, to open up to you a little, I struggle with deep depression and suicidal ideation more often than I'd like to admit, but here I am, talking about what is going on in my head. I even think I found a way out of this and I'm afraid you will most likely laugh at this… after lifting/sports and all different kinds of therapies, pills oh, so many pills and weird head shrinks, I turned to the church. And it helped. Don't get me wrong, I'm still dependent on some medication, but I usually feel better than before. Are there friends who went similar less popular ways to find at least a bit of inner peace and sometimes even happiness? I'd love to hear your stories!

kind watch-'tism thread

I wondered… does /kind/ wear a watch? Well this friend does, since it's impractical to always get the phone out just to check time. Currently wearing a way too loud timex weekender field watch, but I got so annoyed with the ticking that I bought myself a digital casio watch again. - This time it's not a F-91W that served me for so many years but one of the illuminator series instead. Might be a big chunk of plastic, but I don't care about looks much as long as it's sturdy and shows the correct time. But that's just me, other friends might enjoy mechanical master pieces or precious metals.

Any watch-related content will be highly appreciated in this thread! Recommendations, questions, discussions, experiences, … you name it.

What being kind means to you

What does being kind actually mean in your opinion? The term itself I believe can be considered ambiguous and therefore open to discussion. How doe we stay kind in response to a sometimes unkind world, especially online where being mean seems to be rewarded by engagement? What do you think can we do to stay kind or become better people without negativity rubbing off to us? Can always being kind get in the way of your ambitions or arguments, in what way? Did the kindness (or nonkindness) of someone specific (or something like a game/book/movie) influence the way you chose your career, or simply your worldview? Or have you put no thought into it at all? After everything the only thing we can really change is our own way of thought I think.

I remember a coworker of mine from a long time ago asking me bluntly why I was so nice to every new person I met, saying that most of them won't do the same for me. I just answered that's because it was taught to me that way, but found it a bit weird, that person was over forty years old, and at least being kind out of politeness should be something most of us have learned as small children, maybe he just didn't need to be kind anymore in his daily interactions, but maybe the hard part is being kind without expecting anything in return.
There are obviously more complex moral questions to be considered, let's say I was part of a friend group in the Roman Empire, they all spend their free time by going to the gladiator battles every Friday, would it be considered more kind to decline their invitations or to go with them and watch people fighting each other for amusement? So being kind is also contextual in the sense of time and place we are living in, do we decide to accept things how they are in order to not hurt the people we care about and use that as a way to justify nonkindness to strangers? Or do we have to be more careful about what kind of people surround us in the first place?

At least in one point I'm sure, that being kind without motives is a sign of a good, mentally well person, for example even if your day isn't going like you expected it, respecting others, being empathetic or just trying to understand others viewpoints is what matters, even if you don't know them personally.
Like I don't expect people working in retail to put on a fake smile for customers all the time, their kindness comes from putting up with customers non-kindness and not taking it personally while staying professional despite everything.

A topic like this I feel should be a part of conversation especially here,
I saw a similar thread but wanted to create a less provocative one that hopefully sparks constructive discussions about the topic, after all wanting to be kind is what brought us here!

I thought a thread about health could be something worth having. No matter if physical health of mental health, let's talk about it.

Right now I take less and less antidepressants, the reason why I started doing that is simply because I forgot to take them. The results are extreme. I feel more joy now and have the actual urge to eat because food is tasty and not just because I am hungry. Still I am also reminded why I got them in the first place, I feel more anxious, sleep worse and my mood randomly plummets, but now and then reaches above and beyond. The worst thing is that I have way more trouble to focus without them. Currently I take one pill a day so I can at least sleep well, but all of those changes already happened because I forgot to take those during the day. What is the best change is the fact that I genuinely enjoy video games again, before they were more like something to do because I have nothing else to do. I really ask myself how I should continue, I want to beat down the anxiety, but also don't want to lose the new found joy.

Another thing is that I noticed that I shouldn't eat carb for breakfast, I assume I consume to much carb for a day when I eat some in the morning too. If I don't do that my weight is good, if I do it I gain weight.

You are the company you keep.

You are the company you keep.
Are you satisfied with who you're turning into?

With a (rare) browsing of Twitter earlier today, I wondered whether "following" some 'successful' people would somehow influence my own 'success' with their constructive thoughts, i.e. https://twitter.com/naval

But I don't think Twitter provides much constructive value, deduced from the few users I've interacted with.
It's same as imageboards although imageboards at least encourage you to post without as much fear of repercussion.
It also doesn't fulfill the concept of "company" in either case, but gets pretty close.
It's virtually there, in the original definition of "nearly; almost."

Something for you to think about, the company you keep. It's a fun thought exercise.

I wonder if I hung out with more ambitious people or active people how different it'd be.
Instead I hang out with no one other than obscure imageboards for the same reason another poster wrote:
> I have no qualms with being around others if there is purpose.
> Unfortunately for me, I have some responsibilities which require money.

Morning is the coziest time of the day since everyone shares the desire of wanting to go back to sleep and the sense of sleepiness coats everything like a soft blanket.

Dear friends,

The idea is to share some of the habits/stories, friends developed/experienced during their NEET-times and how they cope with the situation of not being a part of the working class. This thread is not about bragging about how great and superior a NEET life is, it's meant more as a support group for friends to talk about their emotions and problems as well as the possibilities that come with living the NEET life.
