It's not an awful enough post to be truly deserving of deletion, although it may be off-topic. . You can report posts you think should be deleted, by the way.
I got nothing better to do and I'm curious about rule 12, so I'm just going to ask this: Would posting vtuber artwork or a reaction image be a bannable offense? I don't plan on actually doing either of those things, nor am I planning on contesting the answer, I'm just asking it out of pure curiosity and boredom.
I wasn't the one who added the rule but I generally agree with the sentiment of vtubers just being another form of camwhore, and any who are obsessive enough to post and talk about them should be discouraged from doing so. As the rule specifically relates to roastie worship and by extension vtuber worship rather than the complete disallowment of all vtuber content I can't positively say all vtuber content is not allowed, but I will delete posts that link or talk directly about vtuber streams or clips as doing otherwise could give robots the perception that vtubers are an acceptable topic in general. Anything that centers around an obsession over roasties is naturally not allowed. Reaction images are an edge case and I would, following the thinking of not encouraging vtuber-related content, prefer none to very few to be posted. I am not interested in vtubers and do not know much about what they look like, so I think it'd be a good rule of thumb to not post images of any of the popular or easily recognizable ones.
Streamers and streams where a virtual avatar is tangential rather than central to its content is another grey area where I'd side with allowing it over disallowing it. As long as it's not centered around the roastie (and if it's not a roastie don't be a fag), and the specific definition of what is and isn't worship I won't bother to define. Youtubers like Tsugu are allowed, for example, as there's n
>Reaction images are an edge case and I would, following the thinking of not encouraging vtuber-related content, prefer none to very few to be posted.
That's good to know, even though I have very few of them and the fact they're more appropriate for /jp/ and its spinoffs anyway. What got me really curious and made me ask this question is that an old autistic hobby of mine is analyzing character design, both male and female. Just stuff like harmonious color schemes, outfit and hairstyle design, things like that. Lurking /jp/ boards made me realize some vtuber avatars are very well designed, very good looking characters.
>On another note, board ownership has been shifted over to me. The previous BO might be around for longer, although not as moderator.
I'm new to this particular iteration of /r9k/ but have hanged around the community for half a decade, give or take, through multiple websites and splinters. I have lurked here for a month and a half before posting and have read most of the threads. I'm familiar with the drama and hardships this moderation and administration has gone through, so I know things haven't been easy but actually quite bumpy. I would like to thank you and the previous BOs and mods for keeping /r9k/ alive, and I wish you good luck in running this board.
The previous BO handled all of that drama as I wasn't recruited at the time, and even after my recruitment I've not done anything beyond handle the occasional spam. I'll try to keep /r9k/ going to the best of my meager ability regardless.
>an old autistic hobby of mine is analyzing character design, both male and female
That's acceptable as long as the ratio of vtubers to other characters isn't high.
It's been a bit slow these past few days but if there's one thing robots are good at talking (complaining) about its normalniggers. Post your stories about times where you've been particularly baffled at the endless retardation of normalniggers.
Thankfully I haven't had to deal with normalfaggots in a while due to corona and whatnot.
Seems like the deal in Murrika was to bleed the middle class to below working class and syphon that money directly into supporting niggers/spics/vermin etc to force everyone onto a (((level playing field))) = a dystopian hell where everyone is gradually crab-bucketed to the point where you end up literally fighting niggers in the street if you have the perverse notion to go outside.

I used to think things would be better after school. Why the fuck do I even try.
Higher ups are known to have a massive ego that get in the way of a lot of things. They're often very insecure and thus want to feel either professionally or intellectually superior to those that work under them so the last thing they want is truth that comes from down under.
>Higher up starts sperging out about how I clearly did it and that I'm disrespectful
Acting hostile to cover up the fact that they were caught lying instead of admitting that they were wrong is pretty common for people with a large ego. I think you should ask awkward questions instead of outright accusing him of lying. Ask him questions in a way that looks like you don't know that he is lying. Appear as if you are just confused and point out that the logic he is bringing up doesn't make sense. If you play it calm and rational then he may just back out from fear of being caught lying even though you already caught him lying inside your head. Another way of saying this would be to put him in a situation where you show that he is on the verge of being caught lying and then he will do the rest of the work for you. I'm not sure if this advice works but it's something.

If there is some sort of afterlife, I hope to meet you there someday, that we may once again enjoy each other's conversation.
If you find yourself hesitating please do act on it. But, if you're gonna go, then I hope that your last moments are moments of peace. Godspeed whatever your decision may be.

The first sentence of your post more or less sums up my childhood. A lot of my dad yelling at me about everything I did wrong, whooping my ass with his belt, and sending me to my room with threats of further punishment. On top of that, he hardly taught me much of anything, a bit about his religion, mixed with some empty rhetoric on how he views life. When he did try to spend time with me, it felt mandatory and intensely uncomfortable. And yet, through all that, he seemed to believe that I would just miraculously turn out normal and successful. Needless to say, he was dead wrong.
Essentially, I was raised to be timid and ignorant, never knowing what to do but always in fear of making a mistake, which resulted in me doing nothing at all because it was safe. Now, I'm working at trying to improve my life, but it's incredibly difficult. I'm having to learn things in my late 20's that everyone else my age has know for a decade or more. Most days it feels like trying to heal a severed limb with a first aid kit, I just don't have the right tools or knowledge to fix the problem properly. It's a very touch-and-go process, but I haven't given up quite yet.
I can tell we all grew up neglected. But since most people's definition of neglect is just "not giving the kid the bare minimum to stay alive", you've got a lot of shitty parents who think they're doing perfectly fine just for meeting that minimum. Or at least that's how mine were. Never bothered teaching me anything, and I don't know if it's just because they were that incompetent or because they thought I was a "smart kid" (just because I taught myself how to read) and would learn everything naturally. All I know is that I'm very grateful to have grown up with the internet. It's no proper substitute for a parent, but it beats flying blind.
Still didn't stop me from having a desolate childhood, though. Turns out, getting treated like shit as a child pounds your self-esteem into dust, preventing you from being able to make friends as a kid and experience all the things a healthy adult did when they were young. I don't even mean "baw i missed out on teen love" either, I mean basic things like having some friends to do stuff with after school, be happy together, make simple mistakes but then learn from. Instead I was kept inside with just video games and an obsolete computer to keep me occupied.
They actually diagnosed me with autism because of how well I fit the stereotype. And that only made shit worse by giving my parents an excuse n
I always tried to avoid the autism diagnosis. I remember reading about the stories on imageboards when I was young. Most people classified it as a death mark for social life. When the moment of truth came, I just lied my way through the session. Despite all this, they had found something weird in my brain a few years back so I only prevented things from getting worse.
>Any problem I had, they just pinned on this alleged autism.
From this point on, everyone (specially my family) started to treat me like a retard. I managed to get away with a lot of things because of this. I am not saying this with pride, most things were despicable acts. In my case, IBs acted as my moral compass for most of my life.
>Plus they mentioned it to the school, who started giving me all kinds of "help"
It goes without saying that High School wasn't any fun for me and I just ignore it ever happened most of the time. I always kept the diagnosis a secret, but most people eventually found out and their attitude towards me always did a 180 turn. This made me distrust most people to this very day.
Still, this doesn't keep me up at night. There's no use on thinking about that.
By this point, I am at peace with my younger years despite everything I have said.
I wish my diagnosis came late enough in life that I could bullshit my way through it. Instead it happened when I was 9-10, years before I had internet access and while I still had a lot of abusive people in my life making it hell. It took until I was 14, when I finally had consistent internet access, for me to learn what the hell autism even was. Nobody even told me when I got diagnosed. Guess they thought I was just too retarded to understand.
You're right in that it's a death sentence. I imagine that were it not for the teacher's aide in half my classes, the quiet rooms I had to go to every time I took a test (because the near-silent classroom just isn't quiet enough, I guess), and mom telling everyone I'm autistic despite asking her to stop many times, I'd have had a much better time in middle and high school. When I learned about autism I started doing everything I could not to look like a sperg, and while it got the school to stop giving me their so-called help, the damage had already been done. I already hated myself, my social skills were practically nonexistent, and plenty of people already saw me as one of the retarded kids.
>IBs acted as my moral compass for most of my life.
Jesus, same here. Being raised by imageboards (or at least in the 00s) has its ups and downs, I've found. On one hand, you get shown all kinds of faggotry from a critical perspective, ma
Look how I casually dropped how they barely physically abused me like I'm deluded or appeasing their abuse and trying to get sympathy off of that. What can be considered abuse or bad parenting is that they infantalized me by talking down to me or giving me responsibilities of a child while at the same time calling me immature, we never spent time with each other and don't really like them anyway so they have no idea who I am and treat me like I'm retarded but due to being kept inside under watchful eyes I never learned how to socialize, and I was never disciplined to learn something from my muscular handy father while I never mantled up to learn from him either. All with the excuse that parenting didn't come with a manual.
Their biggest crime was plain cow dumbness for being babyboomers therefore are unreasonable and brutish, yelling at me for being unable to do homework and punishing me on account of what the old miserable cunts at school had to say about my "outrageous" behavior so I have trouble with articulation, arguing, and forming thoughts because of that. I'm sure they didn't intend to abuse me and they always financially supported me and have what's best for me (or them) in mind. Maybe I do have some real grievances but I know deep down telling these will out m

I've read through it, and I didn't find any of it particularly useful
Rube Goldberg machines involving specific gases, medicines, and bags
Long drop hanging or a firearm are both relatively painless and have high success rates
It's like the writers DO NOT want you to commit suicide
These suicide "support" institutions are ridiculous, masquerading as an end of life choice for senescent wastes
I can not take any pro-suicide stance seriously if they do not support suicide for anyone regardless of age, state of mind, or disability
Only a phony normalnigger would benefit from being prevented from committing suicide, since it is most likely they never really wanted to die in the first place and were only doing it for attention
Getting "saved" from the act of suicide means getting put on a merry-go-round of drug cocktails served up by Dr. Goldstein for the next five years while being forced to subject yourself to retarded normalnigger "therapists"(that only benefit other normalniggers)
Your only three methods of choice should be a firearm, hanging, and drowning, this is supported by statistics
Do not overdose, cut yourself, or jump from heights like a retard
The most important factor is being found, even a poorly aimed gun or botched hanging will be 99% fatal if no one will find you for hours. It's the same thing with drowning,

This is precisely the reason I have been ignoring this thread despite being very interested in suicide, its so barebones it hurts, and the fact it mentions this piece of shit of a book made me stop reading it right there. I have never noticed there was a link to suicide wiki and sanctioned suicide until now.

>Be thorough with planning for your best chances
These are some excellent tips. I have been feeling desperate in the recent weeks, I was starting to seriously consider slashing the jugular or the carotid artery, but your post is making me reconsider it, thank you anon. What do you think of the sodium azide and sodium nitrite methods, which are preferred by suicide wiki and its creators, Sanctioned Suicide? Both methods use chemicals that are considerably easier to get than something like cyanide, for example, however they do advise you to take antiemetics to prevent vomiting. They seem to be decent methods in the success rate department but I have read a few failure reports. Sanctioned Suicide is also the only mainstream normoid organization / community that I know that supports suicide for depressed young adults, I have read their forums for about a month earlier this year, before getting tired of their normalniggery and some of their stupid posts, but they're not really bad people.
>Do not overdose, cut yourself, or jump from heights like a retard
I second your advice. A popular tip in suicide communities is jumping from a building only if its at least from the seventh floor and upwards, there's even a saying
Already had one of these before but we need some more broad topics to get some conversation going. So what have you robots been up to recently? Art, games, anime, vague autistic shit no one's heard about? If you find it interesting, talk about it.
I'd be interested too, we had it before but it always fell apart after a few books and lacking partizipation.
I'm interested in money. They are surprisingly hard to make. At least with gold you could find some in the wild, but with money even that isn't an option.
Solo traditional gaming is patrician as fuck. It can be quite demanding because you're responsible for everything, but its very enjoyable and the best thing about it is resting assured that there won't be drama or infighting among the players since you only have yourself to deal with. I wish I could get into it again, and maybe even start something here, but I'm just so lethargic that I can't do it.
Definitely seems likes it was traced, but I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I see tracing as reverse engineering, it might help anon develop his skills further so he can start drawing original artwork from scratch. I like giant robots too.
Same thing here, not because of poz but because I'm simply too depressed to enjoy things anymore. The only hobby I have now is browsing imageboards and even that is fading away, I had to force myself to write this post.

There's not too many IBs worth visiting nowadays. There's only a board or two that I like per imageboard. In the case of this IB in particular, I only visit this board because I am not particularly interested in /v/, and /b/ has been shit for a few months now (The main alternatives glow like the sun too).

I have been frequenting the /hikki/ board here on Sleepychan and also a couple of very small and slow IBs outside the webring. I have tried lurking the main /jp/ spinoffs but I can't really relate to the board's culture since I don't watch a lot of new anime like I used to, nowadays I don't watch anything at all. I remember 8chan's /v/ being entertaining even if you din't play a lot of games, the board culture was vibrant and upbeat, filename and webm threads were amazing and always brought a lot of joy to many of my nights. I checked the /v/ here on Sleepy some weeks ago and I can say they still have some of that fun spirit, even if its not as strong was during 2015 to 2018. Never really frequented random boards enough to enjoy them, I find them just too chaotic. I do check them from time to time when there's nothing better to do, and sometimes I find hilarious posts that make browsing them worth the effort.

Holy shit, I can't believe I missed this, this is quite amazing. I started believing the plausibility of artificial wombs after reading about animal cloning and CRISPR, but I never expected this technology to be talked about in the open so soon. This is what I mean by solving the female problem with machines, the combination of the artificial womb with the android.
>I am curious about the future. I don't believe it's going to be good, but I want to live to see it whatever it may be.
I don't have positive thoughts about the future either, but unlike you, I don't want to live to see it.
This technology only works on a foetus that is at least 24 weeks old. Even then, there's a chance of failure.
Additionaly, we all know how this is going to end. Women will cry Muh oppression and they are going to shut it down. Even the article alludes to this many times. Furthermore, they say they are having problems getting anyone to try it. A full blown conception to birth is out of the possibilies, (for now).
I am amused by how strange real life and society has gotten. Who knows, something more interesting might happen In the next couple of years. I don't want to miss it.
>Additionaly, we all know how this is going to end. Women will cry Muh oppression and they are going to shut it down. Even the article alludes to this many times.
You're completely right. The biggest obstacle to android companions equipped with artificial wombs isn't technological limitations, but normalnigger society, which is totally gynocentric. Robowives able to bear children would save men from porn addiction and depression caused by loneliness. It would make me really happy if they existed, knowing how much they would improve the world, even though I'm not interested in having one or would be able to afford it.
I would be satisfied with regular robowaifus. They would work as a suitable replacement to a certain extent and the world would surely be a better place.
However, I think that artificial wombs are a bad idea in the long run. Don't get me wrong, I would be happy if society wasn't gravitating around women and every thing they do all day, but such invention would bring unexpected consequences to the world.
If the technology was there, I personally believe that Bill Gates and the pizza gang would use it to create their own personal slaves without telling anyone while banning the technology worldwide. You never know, it might be happening right now.
Your concerns about the misuse of the artificial womb are completely understandable and agreeable, womb-less robowives are a lot safer indeed. They would also be easier and cheaper to produce.
I've been working on collecting every gondola in existence. I have been focusing on doing my best to make sure I get the source audio for each of the files as well as I got fed up with gondola videos with nice tracks that no one could find the source to. My collection is incomplete but now seems like a good time to start sharing it. I ask that if you save these please preserve the file names in some way. One day when I deem my collection as close to "completion" as possible I'll burn thousands of gondolas to DVDs and archive them for future generations.
If anyone sees a gondola ITT and can provide more accurate information surrounding its origins please speak up. It would be nice to add information such as the artists name/handle, but I have to be realistic in my mass collection and can't personally research each piece independently. Also if you have a higher resolution/higher fidelity copy of a gondola I posted do share. This is still a work in progress. Maybe in the future I'll sort them into a genre folder structure and upload them to anonfile. For now they're going to be in no particular order.
And here's all of the seasons separately in one post, for the sake of set completion.
Got some Gondolas for you, OP.

>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.
8chan died in 2016; 8/r9k/ was decent until 2017. If I controlled every thing under by iron rule, things would be better.
