Don't tell me they were out of Pohatu.
He's already dead. no bully.
I'm home again. Happy weekend!

I check about every week.
What happened to the older thread?
Don't have time to visit this place cause I'm busy. Jealous?
Hello Aigis. Fine dress you have on, what a pretty robowaifu you are today. Mind coming over and joining the party?
That's not aigis. That's anon.
>>3001>That's not aigis. That's anon.
idk… those digits?>>3000
Yes that's not aigis. That's anon. An anon of the friend persuasion to be more specific.
Dear diary, it was my first time getting hooked on a light novel
Happy Thanksgiving /kind/ I'm thankful for /kind/ and for our board and for imageboards still existing in general after all that's happened to them.
+1 for this. Without IBs I would have no social interactions at all.
Hey, happy thanksgiving! I'm so thankful that I found this place again.
What kinda gf would you like?
A gf won't solve your problems, to achieve satisfaction you need to fix them and a gf doesn't do that. Still it can ease your pain and solve one or two issues but it also brings new issues.
Not to be rude, but maybe that isn't your only problem? I know it feels like everything would be a lot better with a girlfriend, but it's just another responsibility. It's better to get a girlfriend when you're properly prepared for one, and only when you find a nice girl as well.
OH MY GOD A REDDITOR
This wasn't me >>3068
(rude!) but I don't have big problems or anything like that, I want one because life has been boring lately and I want to fall in love.
Thank you for existing guys
I think the desire to have a gf is half about sex/intimacy and half about self-esteem in the sens that if a girl genuinely loves you it means you’re desirable enough to be loved. Having a gf doesn’t "solve" your problems but requires you have no problems beforehand anyway.
There are a lot of people that get gfs without going through the whole ¨love yourself before loving others¨ stuff so I'm not sure if I believe that…
Yeah confidence is overrated. Its the consequence from success not the cause.
I want to gamedev. I have the tools but not the drive.
Well as a first step just start a conversation with somebody.
So tell us, how are you today? Got any plans for today?>>3093
You say it. Cute image btw.
Baby-steps man, maybe start with a small project like maybe a Zork clone then go from there, maybe a JRPG-esqe or Visual Novel.
I used to toy a lot with RPG2K when I was younger. I never finished any game but it was fun. I suggest you give it a try if you don’t already know it. I also played a lit with WC3 World Editor (but I won’t touch it anymore because of that reforged crap).
web dev here. if you want to do it full time its hard. low wages, competitive market and more make it hard to make a living. i say make indie games
oh cool a new thread. I haven't been on in a few weeks. maybe I'll make a long post.>>2991
a little bit>>3044>>3066
I know this feel but I doubt that being the kind of dude who posts anime girls on imageboards is helping you pal. (unfortunate!)>>3070
yeah for me it's mostly being alone and not going to school or anything anymore, when I was going to school and talking to people I didn't feel this way>>3129
holy crap is this real?
>>3141>I know this feel but I doubt that being the kind of dude who posts anime girls on imageboards is helping you pal. (unfortunate!)
Nothing wrong with that, is far better than being a vile shitposter. Don't be so prejudiced.>>3129>>3146
I thought it was funny lol
>>3147>Don't be so prejudiced.
ばか! you know it's true, don't try to skirt around it. >>3149
Good luck with uni anon we ll always be here for you <3. Out of curiosity what is it that you‘re studying for?
thanku uwu biology but for us to catch up on the other natural sciences it's been mostly chemistry and physics so far, tomorrow's the first exam in physics and it's rly tough on me since the abstraction layer of math won't get into my head mostly because i don't have the basics :/ also cramming rn and coming back here for some relief ^⁻^>>3174
it's a v v nice place u have here, finding nice ppl shouldn't be hard :) what would u say makes someone a fitting friend here?
What part of math physics is it precisely? I remember for me it was the opposite: i did ok on the pure math part but sucked at the practical stuff.
If you insist
Someone with the same kinda interests as me
The more interests that align the more fitting it is, that's the way I see it
For me, it's just someone that's fun to talk to. What more could a person really ask for?
I love you, friend. Real homo.
it's hard to pinpoint, just translating equations to how things link together in models instead of just numbers and characters is impossible for my mind, it's embarrassing but i still struggle with transforming equations
i know the problem is i don't put in enough work, i've tried in last grade and it helped a lot, i've also tried to describe things in a more mathematical way to appreciate it more and make it more immediate, so i should try doing that again, i've put a book i have from the all embracing library (Arithmetic and Algebra Again. Leaving Math Anxiety Behind Forever, Second Edition - McGraw-Hill. Britta Immergut, Jean Burr Smith (2005)) on my reader, now i just have to start reading, maybe that'll teach me the very basics, i'm hopeful ^^
in practical stuff there's nothing for me to translate so it's no problem, sadly most of my physics class had been pure math so far, maybe i should look at those topics and just see what i need to learn for those, but i wanna get a deeper understanding for the abstraction, then again i've always been more of the language/arts person, because u can literally say anything and have it be right because it's about expressing and less abt what is expressed
>>3239>Arithmetic and Algebra Again. Leaving Math Anxiety Behind Forever
Thanks Anon, I'll look into it.
Greetings fellow friends.
that's translating it again, so i'm at a loss as well :( usually my go to solution is finding out what unit has to calculated and then either pick up my equation collection or just search for it online>>3244
don't thank just yet, i still haven't looked into it and just picked it since the title seemed promising… i can upload the pdf if u want tho
/kind/ I do like to visit
greetings from /comfy/
Ahojte Jožovia ako sa máte?
Anyone else completely bored of people? Not to say I dislike them, but there's just nothing new to see. It's very rare to find someone worth spending time with, to the point that I don't feel like going out of my way to meet new people.
The few people I do spend time with are usually meme spouting retards whose humor comes from watered down shit on reddit and YouTube which often originates from that defiled corpse known as 4chan a month or so before. To make matters worse, I lurk 4chan to kill time, so not only is it not really funny, by then it's incredibly grating. Pretty sure they notice this so they dial it back a lot when I'm the only other person around.
I guess a major issue is they find enjoyment in things I find incredibly mundane. Another is that they mostly don't delve very deep into their interests, but that's for another time…
I don't mean to be a downer, I do generally enjoy being around others because it means I get to do things, and I like taking care of others, but damn…
Oh, and one last thing, I don't mind you all. Most of you are interesting in your own way, before a friend recognizes my writing style and complains.
I don't have friends so I can't really comment, I like spending time with my brother but we don't have much to talk about.
You took the words out of my mouth, friend. I was even considering making a post about it too. While I would love to meet new people they are just so boring that I don't bother to. As you said their interests are dull to me and I spend a lot of time with stuff I don't really enjoy, simply to make time pass. Even when we have something in common like watching anime then they don't dive that deep into it, which makes talking about it basically three sentences about it and done.
Sometimes I feel like talking to somebody, sometimes so intense that I feel painfully lonely but when I start to talk to somebody this wears off very quickly because of those issues. I have two buddies left irl but it is even worse with them. Listening to them makes me feel like shit. I often ask myself if I should ditch them.
Now and then I wonder if the problem is on my side, if my interests are just too niche, too boring or whatever. I am just tired of it.
I enjoy spending time with others as well, but it's doing things with others that I like.>>3294
We're two peas in a pod it seems. Especially with that anime example.
Not to say I dive deep, but I don't really watch the same stuff most people do. I guess that's more just a difference in focus. Either way, it happens too frequently.
I still have quite a few friends so I can sort of cycle through them to keep my patience. One friend is actually pretty cool. He's quite a bit more knowledgable about a hobby we have in common so he can be nice to talk to.>>3299
Yeah, I'm 19, so what?
I'm pushing 30. Sometimes felt like how you described in yr OP when I was a teen. Sometimes felt like how you described in yr OP when I was a kid even. Sometimes still feel like how you described in your OP to this very day. Might well be feeling that feel when I'm old and grey.>19, so what?
So what, indeed.
Birds of a feather flock together, or so they say. It doesn't surprise me that many of the posters here have similar sentiments. After all, similar feelings might be what drives people to find small communities such as ours. Not to say that's always the case, but I don't think people just happen to end up places, if they realize it or not.
>>3291>Anyone else completely bored of people? Not to say I dislike them, but there's just nothing new to see. It's very rare to find someone worth spending time with, to the point that I don't feel like going out of my way to meet new people.
One of the only people I like spending time with is an older relative who has something the overwhelming majority of people don't: a strong sense of curiosity. She's far from any kind of expert or intellectual (and frankly I don't consider myself one either), but she seems to take an interest in almost any subject. I can talk or show her pretty much anything I find interesting, and she'll always seem genuinely mind-blown and marvel at how knowledgeable she thinks I must be. She even seems fascinated by topics that I just find boring. Having that level of wonder about the world is something I admire as someone who feels cynical and burned out.
I have yet to meet anyone outside my family as an adult that I'd like to be around though. Maybe it would be easier to find someone in a bigger city, but the kinds of people who share similar interests with me also tend to be the kinds of people who would be likely to stab me in the back. I had one person I'd known for a long time cut off contact with me years ago just for disagreeing with him about politics (and possibly some philosophical issues).>Another is that they mostly don't delve very deep into their interests
I'm pretty guilty of that. Part of it is that my interests are spread a bit thin due to being somewhat general (I always remember Heinlein's "specialization is for insects" quote), and another is that I feel like I lose passion for my interests after a certain amount of time. There seems to be a certain window of time where I'm really interested in a subject, and then it kind of fades away until some future point when my interest is temporarily rekindled again.
On top of that, my memory is bad and is only getting worse. If I try to have a conversation about something, I often have an obvious word or name on the tip of my tongue and can't get it out in time. That just makes me end up sounding like a retarded poseur.
>>3303>Birds of a feather flock together
This is exactly what I saw today, lots and lots of smaller birds and then seagulls and ravens joined in and it was a huge cloud formation of birds, maybe the wind currents had something to do with it
>>3304>has something the overwhelming majority of people don't: a strong sense of curiosity.
Curiosity is an amazing thing. It's become such a rare quality because it's super easy to just look something up. You could say the world has no more secrets, there's explanations for everything and they're at everyone's fingertips.
Also, I don't really mind people like you, you at least look into the things you are interested beyond a wiki page and maybe a youtube video. People that bother me are the ones that act like they know a lot when they really don't know anything. I have the same issue as you so it wouldn't really bother me. As long as I can figure out what you mean, I'd be satisfied.
>>3304>On top of that, my memory is bad and is only getting worse
Pushing 30 friend here again. Don't mean to overly samefriend or powerlevel but age is relevant to this. I have a friend who is in their 40s and a writer. Talented, but they make little money with their novels and supplement income with ghostwriting and even writing papers for college students, who lack a sense of curiosity, if necessary. Whatever it takes to pays the bills. Anyway, older writer friend always jokes about having early onset I forget what it's called
. They're brilliant, but notice themselves slowing a bit. Like how most athletes and programmers tend to quantitatively peak in terms of productivity in their late twenties. But they also acknowledge that there is a benefit to having gained a bit of wisdom over the years and find that more valuable then being as sharp and quick as they were in their "prime". I feel that I've lost a step in some respects compared to my teenage self, but hope to age gracefully and gain from experience despite the inevitable slow down.>an older relative who has something the overwhelming majority of people don't: a strong sense of curiosity
This made me reflect upon how I've been reflecting upon this lately.>specialization is for insects
Based Heinlein quoting friend.
I plan on working towards the things listed in pic related as I grow even older, but right now I feel old enough just typing out these sentiments and have to go now so I can shake my fist and yell at some kids to… get off my lawn! I hope everyone here has a wonderful day and to all you kids lurking here please, please stay off of my god damn lawn. Peace out.
I've been noticing groups of birds lately. It's interesting to watch how well coordinated the swoops and rapid turning movements are of the smaller and faster birds.>>3307>It's become such a rare quality because it's super easy to just look something up. You could say the world has no more secrets, there's explanations for everything and they're at everyone's fingertips.
What I don't get is why people don't use it to their advantage. The more I learn, the more I get a burning desire to look things up when some trivial question pops into my head.>>3310>Pushing 30 friend here again. Don't mean to overly samefriend or powerlevel but age is relevant to this.
I'm about the same age and agree.>I feel that I've lost a step in some respects compared to my teenage self, but hope to age gracefully and gain from experience despite the inevitable slow down.
True, but getting older scares me.
Welcome friend, enjoy your stay

Assuming I calculated it right, today is the half-way point between the two great total solar eclipses crossing North America. I had the idea just suddenly come to me today. I just thought it was sort of neat.
>>3352>today is the half-way point
that's a very interesting observation. don't let this meme's implication of sarcasm fool you. i unironically think you are on to something here. even if the calculation was to be found to be slightly off, observing an approximate half way point is an interesting angle to consider.>the two great total solar eclipses
what did they mean by this?
I have a few friends from way back in high school that I keep in contact with and even see maybe a few times a month depending on the time of year. Overall, they're generally intelligent and successful people (more successful than my NEET ass) who can actually have a real conversation with. Occasionally some of them are guilty of making a joke that's "in" on 4chan or whatever, but most of the time when it comes to humor we have our own brand that is generally funny amongst ourselves. Perhaps I'm just lucky to have met like-minded people so early in my life. Besides my proper friends though, I rarely take interest in new people. I will occasionally reach out to people I used to know and even hang out with them, but I keep a reasonable distance.
I know the meme-spouting people you're talking about. I've certainly met some of them in person, and can confidently say the difference is quite clear. I call them, 'internet people' because the way they speak is akin to people making low-effort replies on cuckchan or reddit rather than actually conversing with the other party. You'll say something to them, and rather than engaging in conversation with a response they'll simply 'react' the way you would on the internet with some joke they know but in real life, causing the conversation to awkwardly die. I attribute this to people growing up online. This phenomenon only gets worse with younger people. I can't imagine how the kids of today, who have a phone or tablet in their hand before they can speak, will function as adults.
Hello OP, I am here to catch up on the thread about when you started going on imageboards.
I worded it confusingly. I didn't mean OP the individual when I said "you", but the general you.
Don't worry anon I knew what you meant.
They're some of the only bugs that I don't mind.
I absolutely love flutterbys Anon. That's a nice one, thanks.
Of course nothing happens, friend. We are already here.
Hey. Just popping by to say hi and merry christmas.
Anyone got cute Santa hat wearing animus?
Christmas thread! >>3105
Those are goh-juss!
Happy Solstice to you too Anon. I hope you got to watch the Jupiter+Saturn conjunction wherever you were at.
I can do that! You can get the splits by getting a timer and just going down as far as you can for 2 minutes a day. Same with toe touching, do that and go deeper whenever you breath out, in a week you'll be doing it with your fists! You should probably warm up or something but I didn't bother and I'm fine.
Don't worry anon, I can promise being a neet is no better, especially when you don't have many distractions. Enjoy your forced human interaction.
Don't know if its because I am drunk or if its meant to be funny but thanks for the laugh. I mean it
Glad to hear it, friend.
But friend, I can’t handle your stringiest potions
Hello I am back
How was the stew, friend?
I long for the simple life of fumos.
Wow this cat has intense stare.
Afternoon /kind/ forgot to say hi the first time I stopped by.>>3768
Same, seems like a good place to take a break from all of the fatalism.
I wouldn't sweat it. Guys tend to get over small conflicts quickly.
You two will be joking about how dumb it all was in no time.
I'm not worried or anything. I realized there was nothing to gain there. Mostly it makes me worry about my friend. I might be forgiving, Other people won't be.
To be quite frank, I don't think my friend would do very well without help from others.
Today was fun :)
I want to pet the aggressive puppy!
It's funny that this is mentioned right after a wild Asuka appeared>>3938
I'm not sure how much I would have liked Madoka or Evangelion on their own, without context, if it wasn't for the fact that both are self referential plays upon their genre to an extent.
So, /kind/ which do you prefer, Asuka or Rei?
But that's the appeal. Rei is just a passive and apathetic girl with hardly any personality and she literally doesn't have a soul
. Asuka is lively and energetic, begging to be matched by a suitably energetic and dominant man.
I prefer Rei design wise, but as a character I prefer Asuka.
I like Misato most though.
>>3947>passive and apathetic girl with hardly any personality
Girls are passive by nature. Rei wasn't apathetic, she just cared very much about one person. Rei 2 had a soul. She was developing her personality.
I see potential in her.>Asuka is lively and energetic
It was clear to me by the end of anime that Asuka was always disturbed and her bluster is just a cover for how broken she is.
I stayed up too long…
Hallo /kind/ long time no see
I'll claim the other trips as well :D
Dark mode too dark for me.
Hello /kind/, long time no see.
What does Patchi need all the books for?
She's a witch. She studies and writes magic books.
But so many? A good chunk of them are bigger than her
I wouldn't doubt that
I just read the story of Kimberly Stringer. What happened to her is horrible. What makes me so sad is how everyone, and especially her parents, think the only alternative to jail is involuntary commitment (functionnaly the same thing).
I hope Kimberly and every seriously mentally ill person can one day find happiness despite the way of life they chose for themselves.
Why are they all wearing glasses? I like I.
Hello /kind/, long time no see. Hope you're all doing well.>>4066
I'd take any but F. C would probably be my final choice though.
E hands down
Why are they all wearing glasses though?
True, but not everyone looks better with them on.
I generally don't like anime but also don't see any problem with people posting it if that's what they're into.
Nobody is forcing anime on you. If it bothers you so much, just ignore it. It's not kind to ban something just because someone doesn't like it. /kind/ just happens to have a lot of animeposters, that's all.
hai everyone :3 haven't been on here for far too long, but i'm slowly starting to get my life together and not doing nothing but mindlessly browsing the web anymore ^-^ i've got making a startpage for my laptop i'm on mostly now soon and this board will surely be way up on the top, i'm happy to join u all again, luv y'all <3https://files.catbox.moe/8hnbze.mkv
-> crystal castles - 'kept' in 720p, it got taken down from yt and is only there in bad quality, so enjoy uwu
I'm Gen Y too but feel like my experience is different from a lot of people my own age. I seem to have been exposed to more older stuff growing up than most and am not really into anything current.
POST SOMETHING CUTE AND I MAY NOT SHOOT YOU
and if i'd just swallow and digest the bullet, what r u gonna do then huh??
Maybe I should try something else.
Something like… friendship!
♬Take me out tonight…♬
How are my east-US friends holding up with this weather? Everything's shut down here because we don't have the means to deal with it. Tonight, I'm having a nice little fire, since freezing cold makes it all that much more nice.
funfact! ur cute :3
it's still hot outside in Florida but it rained crazy last night, the streets are flooded.At least I got a break from the snowbirds, I occasionally see snowbirds but it's not as bad as pre-covid. Are northerners rude or just the snowbirds?
I usually like winter but it's been a bit much this year.
Makes me want to quit my job and hibernate in my room.
>>4425>Are northerners rude or just the snowbirds?
I'd imagine that's a snowbird thing. A lot of them are probably from the larger cities, where life is impersonal and many are rude as a matter of course. I've met many polite northerners, but they probably tend to stay in their smaller northern places and are polite because it's their home town that they care about and hospitality is a thing.
Your question does make me wonder if there is also a condition like snowbird-itis that compounds rude behavior for some. Like, after they migrate, they don't have a sense of neighborliness and subconsciously know that they can just go back home, after having offended the locals, and not have to deal with the consequences of rude behavior like they would in their hometown?
We only get winter weather for about a week or so a year, so it's hard to hate it.>>4425
I don't live in the north anymore, but a lot of northerners are rude. I don't mind it much, because at least you don't have to pretend to like people. This is coming from someone that lived in a small town.
>>4425>Are northerners rude or just the snowbirds?
Besides the rural vs. urban divide, I think it depends on which part of the North in question. As far as I can tell, Northeasterners are the ones with the reputation for being rude in a vocal way, although this has the benefit of knowing that they're not beating around the bush. Upper Midwesterners have a reputation for being nice, but I've read that transplants consider them more passive-aggressive and two-faced while being friendly to outsiders in a superficial way. I've noticed some parallels in the way that people describe "Southern hospitality" and "Minnesota nice." The "Seattle freeze" is also said to be somewhat similar.
I see each of these approaches as having benefits and drawbacks of their own and don't necessarily think that one is better than the other. It seems to come down to being honest but possibly rude vs. being polite but possibly duplicitous as a means of maintaining order.>>4429>Your question does make me wonder if there is also a condition like snowbird-itis that compounds rude behavior for some. Like, after they migrate, they don't have a sense of neighborliness and subconsciously know that they can just go back home, after having offended the locals, and not have to deal with the consequences of rude behavior like they would in their hometown?
That makes sense, considering social repercussions are the only thing keeping the behavior of a lot of people in line. The more rootless a person is, the less skin they tend to have in the game. I say this as someone who would gladly have residences in faraway places if I were rich.
>>4432>I've noticed some parallels in the way that people describe "Southern hospitality"
Southern people speak in a polite manner, however they absolutely are rude once you understand their speech. For example, if you ever hear a Southern person say "bless your heart" they're practically calling you a retard in a way that could be deemed proper. A lot of people here seem to be very conscious of their image and want to be seen as prim and proper. As a result they do things in an underhanded way.
I absolutely prefer the Northeastern method. It's far more effective.
I don't like the Northeastern method, whenever you say hello you are either flat out ignored or they look at you like a deer in the headlights and just freeze up because they don't know what to do. Sometimes I feel invisible by them, I don't know how describe, I don't expect them to be fully polite but at least say something, I don't like it when they push me or touch me either, I wish they would at at least say excuse me so I could get out of the way, it isn't a big deal for me to let people pass. I feel like northeasterners are too rushy and too pushy to even slow down and see the world around them. It's it like have tunnel vision no matter where they go.
I suppose there's an amount of personal preference in play. My thoughts are that I'd like to accomplish what I set out to do with as few distractions as possible. There's time for leisure at other points in time. I wouldn't want strangers trying to talk to me for no reason either. It's fine in a social setting, but if someone is ignoring you it's not a social setting.
I will say though, I think touching is a city thing. I've never experienced that up North, and only in metropolitan areas. I've only been in major cities in the south, of course.
There's nothing wrong with valuing your time. I for one hate wasting time to no gain whatsoever. It's not that they can't relax and take it easy, it's just that people usually have things to do.
this has become my morning paper thread, i don't know what to say, so just have a good day everyone :3
Thank you!; have you the sauce of that anime girl?
Oh, okay. I'll search it. Thanks!
You're all a bunch of friends.
I've been reading Berserk the past two days. It's amazing how grotesque the art is. I read a bit of it not too long ago, and I really don't think I appreciated the art as I do now.
i've finally cut out all social media and instead reading more blogs, one post has more information than an entire day wasted on social media and i feel so much better ^-^ i'm so habby frens, i hope u find something to be habby bout too <3
