I've been digging around the internet archives and looking at TV and ads in the VHS collection going all the way back to the 80s. Things seemed so good then…. can anyone older explain to me in detail what those times between the 90s and early 2000s where like ? the 85-99 period seemed really peaceful considering the type of TV that was on…what happened ?

Pic unrelated.

Any wizards planning on traveling before they die?

I'm 29, not yet a wiz but I'm less than a year away. I'm getting bored of isolation. I must have spent the last 15 years in total isolation so far and I'm just running out of shit to do alone. Maybe I would play guitar on the streets for some gryos or something. I have a dream of just roaming Europe and some parts of Africa, seeing the ancient cities and landmarks.

I really don't care if I die. If I get kidnapped and executed by towelheads I really don't give a fuck. I had a shotgun in my mouth last week, I don't care.

I work in Thailand at the moment. I have seen some interesting stuff when I travelled up north. The monkeys around the temple in Lopburi have been my favourite!
Learned a little about Thai history and Theravada Buddhism. Would like to know more though.

One day I would like to travel to China when they have relaxed their insane covid rules.
It is my ambition to visit the last remaining Manichaean shrine in the world. Also, to see the temples of Wudang. Oriental philosophies interest me.

Pic is the temple in Lopburi.

Traveling to a place where you don't already have friends to host you is not fun

I suppose you could do Workaway and help out at a monastery or restore a castle

There's a big-time YT channel, well for a Japanese ex-hiki, who travels around the world

I would recommend you to hike something like the Shikoku 88 Temples

It was my understanding that Mao destroyed all the temples in China during the great leap forward.
Anything you find there is likely "restored". I.e, they tore it the fuck down and rebuilt it in typical Chinese insanity. It was big news when the drought this past year revealed a Buddhist shrine that had been underwater for millennia.

Kinda sad because the most aesthetic parts of Chinese culture are all gone. It's always been a shithole, but at least it used to be a cool-looking shithole. More than can be said for a lot of the world.

It still exists in Taiwan.
The more nuanced mainland cultures all got eradicated one way or another, though.

the genre of cyberpunk is dead, it was what people in the 80s and 90s thought the future would be. And now we are living that future, turns out its actually quite boring.

If you want the future from a modern perspective check out the dying earth genre and what is called cli fi or climate fiction, which is about the future where climate change ravages the land

For those of us with a little disposable income, how about we recommend each other some interesting ideas on what to purchase from amazon. I know we all enjoy the thrill of patiently waiting for packages to arrive in the mail, but sometimes I'm at a loss for what to buy next other than the obvious like video games.

I avoid lining the pockets of Bezos when possible even if Prime Day is appetizing. Amazon makes Google and Microsoft look benign. The best thing about Amazon is its reviews (the non-bot ones). Ratings sites these days aren't half bad though. There are price trackers if you're set on Amazon. Remember to use the Smile URL to donate to charity.

If you want Chinese crap, it's better to go straight to the source on AliE or Taobao.

At the risk of being cliche, r/BuyItForLife is helpful if you can look past the circlejerk.

I guess my words were meant more for people who haven't wholly bought into Amazon; I use eBay. People aren't going to upend their established shopping habits. Obviously it depends on what you want to buy.

>Isn't that particular side effect mostly diagnosed in younger men anyway?

I always suspected that it had more to do with physical activity, not age. Young males are typically more physically active than anyone else. She is a physical trainer who works out nearly every day. She is in far better shape than me.

Anyway, it wasn't pericarditis but rather a pericardial effusion. They drained the fluid and there was no pus in it (I actually got a chance to look at it) so she will likely be fine. She is still in the hospital while she recovers from the procedure. Hopefully, they'll let her go tomorrow.

i sat outside today watching a stray cat. it walked around, sat down like a guard keeping watch, and the sudenly it ran into the woods. a short while later it returned to the street with an old shoe hanging from its mouth. it hauled the shoe off to the other side of the road and then started eating from it. i wonder what was inside it

Endless scroll implemented on HotNewHipHop. Impossible to get past a few days results. At least with archive.org, I could go to other tab, then return and slightly go up and then down. The app is also completely useless. Even greedy Sankaku Channel has an option to turn on pagination.

I really like this style. The eye, hair, head, and body shape combination… It's an odd short-lived trend in anime art that many JP artists took up just after the turn of the millennium but it seems to have died out. Goma Satoshi and Tinker Bell come to mind. I estimate from the ratio, resolution, and style that the VN came out in 2002.

I drink lots of water or low calory stuff, mostly water. Sometimes I eat any of those twice or more a day, sometimes I don't eat all of them.
