I want to read more comics/mangas where the main characters are outcasts/neets/autists with no social skills, which ones do you know?


Hellboy? He's not so much awkward as he is stoic and accepting of how he'll never fit in and find real love. not in the movies though


welcome to the nhk
steins gate (anime or vn better)
re zero
Hyouryuu Net Cafe (the mc is a normalfag but there are otaku loser characters in it)
Koroshiya (honestly a 10/10 mc is a bullied virgin who becomes a killing machine)
Ressentiment (mc is basically a wizard, he's never had a gf but basically wastes all his money on fucking prostitutes but ends up getting a vr waifu)
Ajin (mc is a typical loser who is only good at studying)
Dead Tube (mc is a loser virgin doesn't really care about that since he's a gore fetishist)
Holyland (hikkimori mc)
Mushoku tensei (mc is a virgin neet who gets reincarnated and is an actually good isekai)
Honestly most manga have pretty loserish main characters, you just have to look for seinen ones


Strongest Man Kurosawa
Onani Master Kurosawa, although the ending is a very normalfag
March Comes in Like a Lion
Koi Kaze (be warned it's about a brother-sister relationship with a large age gap but I found the protagonist very relatable)
Berserk to a large extent

also seconding recommendations for NHK and Ressentiment if you haven't read them, you need to.

subject says it all. i want to make money doing something i love instead of being a wagecuck (don't we all?), but i have no idea how to monetize my art or my skills. some people might say "don't do it for the money" but i'd really want to get paid to do something actually worthwhile.

How are you going to sell them? It's all marketing and very little writing. If you try to self-promote they'll call it "spam" unless you buy some big jew corporation to "advertise" for you (they just steal your money)



It was a way in the past. Now there's 100 coins that'll never go anywhere for every coin that will multiply by 10.


i just laid out a hypothetical scenario where im completely fine with every book selling only a single time each month. that is really bad and slow for the record, stuff sells itself at that low rate with no effort on your part


What platform do you use to sell your books? I'm beginning to think writing is the only way I'll earn a pittance without being miserable


If you need an obscure fetish that isn’t too obscene try “balloons”. Especially balloons and MLP together.
Like sentient balloons having weight loaded on them almost to the point of popping, such things.
Real fucking wierd offshoot on “fearplay” but I’ve seen dogshit artists get commissions on it.

After Reading Fingerprints of the Gods and Magicians of the Gods, I wonder if it’s possible the existence of an ancient and lost civilization like those books described. I know a couple of books who give more evidence of that. 2 books written by the Spanish investigator Javier Sierra, called: En busca de la edad de oro and La Ruta Prohibida, if you want to read them. But, the only book I know who gives a serious proof of that is Hamlet’s Mill. That makes me think if the civilization is cyclical and the event that erase a possible civilization could happen again to us. Just think about it.

just smoke some dmt


if the effect is to make him believe in ghosts, then that wont. i have smoked "heroic" doses of dmt many times and i am still (somewhat) grounded. i certainly dont believe in religions or muh dank machine elves or what have you.
i realize that is probably an overreaction to your short comment, but i meant it more as a clarification with my own experiences.
tldr i also recommend dmt.


if ghosts or paranormal stuff existed you could bet money that science would have found a way to enslave it and use them as some kind of engine or labor. unless you believe that's what circuit boards and electricity and stuff is.


it's called "collective unconscious"
for example, the myth of the green man, in every country around the world you can find some references to this being.
same for werewolves and other supernatural creatures.

btw, a la verga venezuela, usted ya cojio. no se haga wey.


the scientific method makes this world unexciting and even depressing.

the concept of magic that we all understand is something that "breaks" all the laws of nature, we want all these things to be literally "supernatural" (transgressive)

ghosts, god, love, and all that kind of shit

Recently I've been getting into photography. I've found that after doing so, I perceive moments in different ways. Things simultaneously seem more transient, yet more permanent. It's a sensation that's difficult to describe, except to say that I am more 'aware' of the moments around me. For obvious reasons I have avoided urban areas, but in terms of landscapes and natural shots, it is quite peaceful.

Any photography hobbyists here?

There is a wagie in each of these windows.


some really wonderful stuff in this thread


Agreed, I never thought of photography as something I could get into, I'm more of a videographer but this thread makes me want to take photos



where do sites obtain vintage japanese photographs? is there some central archiver of this stuff? maybe japanese libraries?

Anyone use one of these? Are the newer, bigger ones worth it if I have an old Kindle with a keyboard? Mostly want bigger size.

I just use a cheap android tablet for reading e-books and the like. Never had any compatibility issues, and I read a lot and have tested many different file formats.

An Android tablet is far more versatile too than these e-reader devices. I think I spent about $200 on mine around 5 years ago and it still works well (they're probably cheaper nowadays). I got so much use out of it that the faux-leather case is literally falling apart from wear.

They're really useful for traveling anywhere too since they're a compact form of near-limitless entertainment, and you can use it for basic computing tasks like email, online shopping, or internet browsing. They can also be comfy for watching TV in bed.

I'll definitely be buying another one once my current one eventually dies. Also, I would look into refurbished devices instead of buying new.


>go tired of windows shopping

Well, I posted in the thread already but what I'd like to ask is:

I'm sick of lurking around wondering, is there a device with e-ink that is not android that has no restrictions and can read cbz (and has text to audio synthesis) of which is the size of a typical manga and costs a bit under or around 100 usd?

They have weird offbrand Chinese ones that show up then immediately get bought, then show up on another seller, unless on ali, so with how much of an unfortunate bum I am I figured I'd just go ahead and ask someone.

About hacking, I figure would hacking brick it? Won't android's, though recommended, try to control you and also have planned obsolescence in their software design, even hardware design?

I've already used calibre to make all books txt so I can read them on any shabby device and even have my pocketgo v1 reading to me (that's a gp2x sort of thing, for emulation of old consoles really but it has text reading capability and text to audio) randomly (sounds bad really but it's a cool device to me anyway and it can show the text of course though it's a bit small for even normal reading I'd figure) but honestly manga I've never had a convenient small device for as tablets look bad when cheap on their sides in portrait mode.

Well, my overall point is that I know nothing about the weird offbrand ones if they often have no actual title but have a familiar hardware design. Do they have stores? They claim to have real e-ink and can read cbz, some claim it, but I just don't know.

The two types I keep staring at are this one and preferably this one as they come up a lot and that second ones seems to claim cbz and the other generally does not claim to be able to do it. I take it they are both bad but still. I assume they are both terrible in some way? These two designs that have no specific title nor name?

Also I don't like the idea of a touch screen.

I'm thinking that the pocketbook might be my best option and lurked enough to see someone claim most can do cbz? I'm reading and pondering ereaders_101, the wiki link, right now. It mentions not cbz in it though is nice to see.
Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


>this one
>preferably this one
For got to link the sites, but it's whatever, one was >>59237 that image of which claims cbz. I wonder how bad they are?


I'm surprised the PineNote hasn't been brought up yet.



Pretension costs real money, I have a 2$ kindle (idk thrift store prices, even came with a case) and I still read far more books on my phone.
> But ereaders are even better than books.
How do you read like this? For me the serendipity of a bookshelf is something I need for most of kill-time reading.

figured. i noticed countries that get rid of overhead powerlines are relatively wealthy, small, and prone to heavy snow or other bad weather. nowhere else really does it


East coast USA, but they're in every part of the country as far as I know. I just looked it up and new lines are required to be buried, so these have been up for >50 years. There's a process for determining if existing lines should be buried according to some cost/benefit analysis.

I have the itch, but I'm going to hold off until sunrise and check out a local trail. Hopefully it's not crowded if I'm early enough.


I walk downstairs and then upstairs to my room


>nowhere else really does it
Because it is a horrible idea, horribly wasteful, absurdly difficult to maintain, replace, and repair, and absolutely insainly expensive.
Oh, and the ones that rely on pressurized oil for insolation and water proofing are ticking time bombs for irreversible environmental disasters that have a side effect of occasionally exploding oil directly into the ground water table when they fail.
Only in cities that are basically built on a extensive underground tunnel network like certain parts on new york where underground powerlines actually make sense.
Everywhere else it's the result of corruption or extreme stupidity.


I believe one of the tipping points for making that call here was a certain hurricane that swept in during mild and damp ground conditions, supposedly it swept down 70 million m3 worth of forest over one night, and ruined 20000 miles worth of powerlines, it took 20 days to get the power back everywhere and in that time 600000 people were without electricity. Ground cables are indeed a lot more costly to lay, more difficult to maintain but they also require significantly less maintenance during their lifespan, as for the environmental aspect there seems to be just as many arguments against the overhead lines.

Any of you write fanfiction or get into it at all? Any that you've found that you'd like to share?

…as for myself, I tend to be to embarrassed to share any of it, even on forums. It's a closet hobby of mine.

Know of too many things called Gibson for that to make any sense to me.


That sounds swell, but one of my techs accidentally refueled the cWarp with fuel that had Nihilistic additives. We'd be lucky to move a few inches within the next 10 or 15 eons.

I am new to the subject of visual art. I was struck by the intensity of the work of an artist called Ilya Repin. I don't know what it is about his work; it just captivates my imagination.

Post art which captivates your imagination.

i like 19th and early 20th century illustrators, especially when the art has fantasy or oriental elements to it


What location is this? What did the artist and critics have to say about this painting? There's definitely a strong mood here.


briggate shopping district of leeds, england. the artist, atkinson grimshaw, has loads of similar works from later on in his career, foggy london urban and landscape paintings. he was a very successful artist from the start so probably everyone had something good to say about it

I keep eating ready meals which are starting to taste stale and I can't imagine the lack of nutrients and fresh ingredients being beneficial for my health. Also it's expensive.

People will tell you that cooking is easy but I have so little energy that I can't even get myself to follow those cooking recipes that require many steps and different ingredients.

I tried just eating frozen vegetables with salt and butter but they taste bland like that. Tried to improve it with some premade sauces but they all taste terrible.

So anyone got some REALLY easy to make meals?

The slices are a bit thinner and they add some bulking/thickening stuff like guar/xanthan gum and cellulose fiber (which is basically tree bark and plant leaves) that don’t get digested by humans. It just tastes like less sweet bread to me.


I've been experimenting to what extent nutmeg can substitute sugar and sweeteners. If you get natural (no sugar in the ingredients label) peanut butter, it goes alright with a little bit of nutmeg powder.


Same where I live. Outside of the generic paprika and stuff you're paying out the asshole.

Mexican food is completely unaffordable here in New Zealand. All the salsas and tortilas are egregiously expensive it costs like $30 NZ to buy all the ingredients for one meal from scratch.


Though doctors like to prescribe drugs. A lot of times depression is caused by a nutrient deficiency.

I cook a lot of stews. Try not to use to much meat, but lots of veggies. It's cheap and helps to heal the body.

I also buy bone broth, this helps to heal your digestive tract. This means that you absorb more of the nutrients you ingest(this is a bit expensive)

Also recommend daily cod liver oil. Deficiency in Vitamin D and Omega 3 can cause depression.

I found once I change my diet to this my depression wasn't as bad, and helped other issues I had.


I find that I pay much less mind to the tedious parts of cooking when drunk. A cursory look at halfchan /ck/ reveals that they're all alcoholics, so this must be a commonly used trick.

>high effort
you literally just rub the potato over a cheese grater and then throw it in a pan you dumb nigger
