No, I think the current BO is being retarded is all.
Sturgeon just messed up and gave the /fit/ BO too many permissions and he made some shit-posts.
That makes sense.
I wouldn't mind some BLOATLORD shitposts tbh. As long as the catalogue isn't flooded with them, I find them funny.
But have you taken the brown pill yet, matey?
it's a tough pill to swallow!
I understand many Anons around here have shit family members, annoying neighbors, and other prevailing maladies of the like that makes one's living beyond unbearable, vent about it and share experiences, at any rate excuse my selfishness since the only reason im making this thread is so i can vent about it, and this subject is specific enough that it could warrant its own thread
ill get the ball rolling
>My room is located in what used to be a Garage
>Its Split in two by a drywall because reasons (most likely my "Mother"'s retardation)
>The retards who placed the drywall wall didn't build it all the way up, this means there's nothing between the beams, making the Drywall redundant because noise travels through the holes between the beams
>For almost a year im left alone there, have to deal with the arbitrary intrusion of my "mother" from time to time, but it is mostly silent and cozy, more than i could ask for
>My "mother" gets the great idea of turning half of my room in a office
>She has plenty of space elsewhere, my step-dad is loaded and has plenty of properties and spots, but she chooses to place it in my room anyways
>Have to move all my shit into the other half
>I barely have space to move
>I have to literally move the chair in order to open the wardrobe and similar other logistical disasters
>The office was meant to be a place for me to work, long story short i was supposed to work with a business associate of my step-dad, wich ended up being a load of bullshit and a underhanded deal to have a company subsidiary under my name while he manages it and i work for him at a warehouse
>Their bullshit collapses because Corona-chan (Thanks for saving me from wageslavery Corona-chan!) but now the office is converted on a Literal warehouse
>The other half of my room is now filled to the brim with boxes, day in day out niggers will go to deliver or drop boxes, >Remember how i said the beams have holes inbetween them? exactly, everything they do sounds as if they are in the same room even if they are not, i can't count how many trains of thought, reading sessions, or just straight up being unable to sleep because of loud insensitive retards with no care for silence and no situational awareness
>you're free to go anywhere
Saying that is ridiculous, you're free to what, trundle through the woods? loiter businesses until a cop tells you to fuck off? sit on the street?
>and do anything
What are you going to be doing with minimal clothing and money?
>with no responsibilities
You're constantly required to not attract attention to yourself lest you attract the attention of cops, and you have to struggle to get food everyday since you don't have any money
Consider that you also have to be on guard to not get robbed by other homeless
Why are you implying a difference between normalniggers and the homeless?
The homeless are normalniggers, they live in tent cities with their junkie girlfriends and pals and have the bravery to accost bystanders for cash or rides
They are rejected by mainstream society but are still normalniggers by definition
>in the city I live in 2 young women were helping the homeless
Selfish altruistic fucking whores
I feel like I'm not deserving of talking about my problems and anguish because I came from a family that barely physically abused me, houses me, bought me a car, paid for my school and makes me homecooked meals so I'm objectively not allowed to complain as they really aren't bad people. It's all spoiled brat behavior and emotions from someone who never knew hardship or seen what objective care is and never knowing my family and wondering if the way I feel is warranted.
I see all of you here with terrible or tragic lives and I get guilt from how good I have it. I feel like I shouldn't come here because I don't fit in, and I've always made an ass of myself especially on the internet anyway and will be ultimately made fun of so whatever. All I can do to "help" is tell you how that makes 'me' feel and talking about 'my' experiences because I'm a narcissist who wants attention and care from people other than my family who unbeknownst to themselves possibly didn't really love me and of course your family will always prefer you and no one liked me for who I was which led to me to other ways to look for attention and how I got into so much trouble throughout my youth with other kids, school and the law.
>because I came from a family that barely physically abused me, houses me, bought me a car, paid for my school and makes me homecooked meals so I'm objectively not allowed to complain as they really aren't bad people.
Sounds like you got emotionally abused instead.
I sort of know how you feel, anon. I have also refrained from posting in this thread because I don't feel like my living conditions are 'bad enough' to justify sharing them here. I have a decent roof over my head, I have clean clothing, a bed to sleep in, and I always have food to eat. There are a lot of people out there who can easily argue that they have it worse than I do, but no one's life is ever perfect. I still have plenty of problems, and you have your problems as well, and just because our problems may not seem as bad as someone else's, doesn't mean that they aren't issues all the same. We do ourselves no service when we disregard our own struggles just because someone else out there has greater hardships. Don't allow someone else's poor lot in life to make you feel as though your own difficulties in life are invalid, because that helps no one, least of all yourself. A problem is a problem and still needs to be addressed and fixed, else that problem grows and makes one's situation worse.
>I feel like I shouldn't come here because I don't fit in
I can certainly relate to this. I sometimes refrain from posting here because I read some of the posts, feel as though I can't really relate, and start to think I don't really belong here. However, I still come back because I realize that although I never feel a true sense of belonging anywhere at anytime, I have more in
Life's pretty alright at the moment.
That sounds fair. I prefer to have a self insert in most games. The disconnect can be really strong if I dislike the protagonist and can't change it in any way.
I have grown to understand Visual Novels better.
I have nothing more to add either. Discussing escapism would be interesting, but that's another story
I think the argument for escapism is pretty cut and dry in a place like this.
There are things which we cannot experience in a world like this and so I see no issue in seeking those things in escapist media. That ranges from being a super-hero in a fantastical world to simply experiencing a true love in a mundane world.
Escapism only becomes detrimental when you use it to run away from your problems rather than as a tool to experience the unexperienceable, and perhaps finding meaning in doing so.
We are pretty much on the same page then. Although, I can only enjoy escapist media when my immediate reality becomes too overbearing. In normal circumstances, I like to watch or read something better written.
I wouldn't say well-written and escapist are mutually exclusive. Romance VNs are pure romantic escapism yet they can be very well written. I get what you mean though. Non-escapist entertainment can cover a wider variety of topics/genres and is generally allowed to be much darker.
I hate to keep taking up so much of the discussion in this thread with my VN autism however I hope that you all will tolerate this just a bit longer.
Just today I was playing a VN, as I do, and it switched to the girl's perspective for a bit. She started thinking of such kind and loving things about the player character (and vicariously me due to my self-insert style of play) and it was quite the bitter-sweet moment. It honestly made my sensitive ass almost go a bit watery-eyed.
Reason being is that sometimes when I'm playing VNs I start to remember the impossibility of it all; the cloyingly sweet love, the idealistic girls, and even if only a little bit, it does get to me. With this case specifically, I was touched by such genuine words of love and kindness, words which were being directed at "me", words which would be neither thought nor spoken in a world like ours.
Overall though the segment was very enjoyable, though again, slightly bitter-sweet. It's a fleeting feeling but a powerful one nonetheless.
I imagine a younger me would have been much more saddened by something like this but I've come to terms with the wa
This is one of the reasons why I can only enjoy this type of media in unbearable situations. Just like you said, reality can be disappointing, but I don't want to think about that while I am immersed on whatever thing I am reading/watching. Nevertheless, I can suspend my disbelief if I want to disconnect from real life and stop thinking about everything.
>Again sorry for talking about the same shit for a week straight. And if you've read all of this shit, thank you for taking out the time.
It was a nice read. I enjoyed it.
From my part, I haven't written that much in a long time, my grammar is starting to fall apart.
You can express your feeling on the General Media Thread if you don't want to keep posting in this thread.
What's /r9k/ drinking tonight?
Man green tea tastes absolutely fucking disgusting. I regret buying a box of it because of my autistic health kick.
I drink green tea and chamomile.
It's been a while since I've gotten drunk but I did get quite tipsy with vodka a while ago and it was quite fun, until the buzz wore off and I had to take painkillers to get rid of the headache.
Just a carbonated soda
6 diet snapples, and my bladder hurts but i dont wanna get up
vodka tonic with lemon juice
In less than a month, it will be Elliot Rodger’s 30th anniversary. ITT we shitpost everything relating to the good looking guy!
Those were failed normalfags.
Failed normalfags has meant those who want sexual or social success but are unable to achieve it; for about 4-5 years now on this iteration of r9k. And so "tfw no gf", involuntary celibates, and "doomers" are all under the blanket of failed normalfaggot. What has and is being done on the legacy r9k is none of our concern. Enjoy the spoonfeeding newnigger
On another note, the MGTOW community, a community that shares some (emphasis on some) things with this place calls involuntary celibates "failed bluepillers". I just thought it was interesting that two different, isolated, communities could come up with very similar terms for the same group of people.
refer to the spoiler. It's old now, but it shows that most people in there are impressionable retards. I don't care about that place and neither you should.
The concept of obnoxious faggots that bitch all day about women it's not new. The chart is really old so excuse the feels guy. Places like r9k and the MGTOW community are bound to receive a lot of these types
>The concept of obnoxious faggots that bitch all day about women it's not new.
Thankfully this has been weeded out for a few years now. Posts have revolved around general discussion about what we've been up to, what we like doing, and how we've been for a few years now. MGTOW however, seems to be a nonstop bitchfest. To be fair, some of them do actually live up to the group's namesake and focus on themselves.
Most of the discussion was contained in the whg thread on the old 8/r9k/, but the interest seems to have died down. After all, you can only have the same three debates so many times. Most of what was said wasn't enlightening anyway so it's not a great loss. I prefer it this way.
I am not familiar enough with the MGTOW movement to give a solid opinion, but I'll trust yours.
>What is this about?
Every month a book is chosen, robots will discuss, post their opinions, experiences and overall thoughts about said book.
Feel free to sugest whatever book you may like for the next month.
Everytime the monthly book is announced the month will be written in the name field for easy finding. The pdf of the book should be in that very post.
Beware there will be spoilers in this thread
>Is it true that the main girl is shittier in the novel than in the anime?
That's from the manga, it's fucking insane at times. I would recommend it only if you are curious, because the ending is not very good
The novel is more grounded in reality, many anime-like scenes are not in the book and the main girl acts more like a real school girl in this version.
>Hell I should rewatch the anime, it's been years since I watched it.
I only read the novel because I didn't understand the ending of the anime when I rewatched it. It's explained better in the novel. In the manga that happens halfway through the story, adding 20 extra chapters.
Since it's already July, I am going to assume that people have read or are reading the novel.
*What do you think about the novel?
*How do you compare it to the anime?
*Did it changed your outlook of the story?
*What do you think of the main girl now?
*Did it make you reflect on how you were when you first experienced the story and now?
Feel free to effortpost and shitpost away.
It seems I must write my biggest post to date.
I was very young when I first watched the anime. I was pretty reckless, watching anime all night, always playing video games, all in an attempt to escape my immediate reality. At the time I was in high school and it showed me what could happen if I continued with that reckless lifestyle. After that, I dropped anime altogether. In my later years of high school, I even tried to become a normalnigger, of course this didn't work and only made me feel extremely miserable.
After finishing high school, I tried to watch the original series that got me out of that vicious circle of consumerism, and made feel worse ironically enough. I couldn't stomach the anime, what I was watching was so disconnected from myself that I couldn't empathize with the main character.
Right after dropping the anime halfway through, I decided to read the manga. It was strangely satisfying and uncomfortable at the same time, watching the main character fail time and time again at fixing his life, only for everything to crumble down at the end. Maybe it was because I was massive faggot at the time, but I preferred the dark angle of the manga to the idealistic vision of the anime.
After some years, I finally read the novel. Being pretty close to the anime, I couldn't avoid comparing it to the anime and feel a bit nostalgic. Having watched the original anime almost a decade ago, I believe it
I only watched two episodes of the anime (Welcome to the NHK) a while back before deciding not to watch any more. I feel that there are a few particularly outstanding anime shows I saw that are worth re-watching, but the rest feel like dead weight even if they were decent.
Still, I am going to read the novel because it seems a lot less mundane than the philosophy that I have been reading recently.
I believe that book clubs revolving around a specific book and specific time are often destined to fall apart in the long run because it is very rare for people to be on the exact same book at the same time. Reading is like a process where you finish one book and are ready for another specific one that might entice your interest in that moment. At least, this applies with everyone who roams around somewhat in the books that they read.
For example, reading Welcome to the NHK did not appeal to me until several weeks after this thread was created.
I came to that conclusion too. When July started, I was very busy and realized I didn't want to write about the novel at that time (Hence the time gaps). I don't think this dynamic is going to work in a small board like this.
Probably, this would be better as a "Rec Book Thread", it would mitigate most of the negative side effects.
I am going to ask the BO to change the OP later
The Waifufaggotry Thread is getting a bit Derailed, so i made this one to take the Discussions on the Nature of the Divine
As Always, i still do Tarot Reads, but no More than 5 Cards, and please THINK before you ask for reads, because they really are a pain in the ass for me to Make

Why are you doing this? What benefit can this shit bring?
It's a divination method, like Tarot.
But the way it generates randomness is by you making dots and counting those dots (repeat 16 times to generate initial figures, then generate the rest from there). This method is easy to digitize without loss of accuracy, speeding up the entire process quite a lot, especially by doing the signs and houses and associations and all that as well.
Plus, the way it saves and loads allows you to use it as a divination diary to check your accuracy.
Tried a few minor magical techniques (or rites) with overwhelming success. Will have to study more before I really commit and go in all the way.
What'd you do?
Pics or fake and gay.
Dump your comfy wallpapers.
That should be the end of the dump.
So what have you been cooking, anon? Did it taste good? Post recipes! I myself made potato soup, although the one in picrel isn't it
Made this kfc knockoff the other day, it was ok
>Anon is black
I just make steak and salad every day, high nutritional values and quick to make, I see no reason to make other fancy meals.
I don't know how to cook.
Fahrenheit more in the sense where everything is beyond fucked, most people just stop caring and our overlords make a mistake that destroys society as we know it. I don't believe this will happen in our lifetime, at least not how you imagine it. Society so far has been like a pendulum where after much prudery a very liberal age follows and viceversa. Although, it might be hard now given the current state of society.
>I just want globohomo to do something stupid and force me to fight for my life
The USA is the center of the world. The jews wouldn't allow a full blown war or a major crisis. They will only limit themselves to false-flagging. On the other hand, if you are not American (or from a nice European country) you might want to be prepared just in case, many countries in recent years have been entering crisis, in some cases it is almost a vicious circle where they are okey for some years, then it's barely better Africa and after that back to normal again.
That's no heaven for me, sir no sir.
Never ever, not even dead.
Since they're basically minor deities/spirits, those who choose the men slain in battle, they wouldn't be 3D in our sense (though PD may depend).

I used to love to shitpost, falseflag and troll for fun and argue for the sake of arguing.
But now I feel incapable even of that, no finesse or joy anymore.
