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 ?

Another proof that modernity is a burden, life must have been simpler and more pleasant when you could barely see your reflection in the lake you would wash yourself in. Every new thing just adds unecessarry complexity and problems.

This, all I keep seeing is norwood reaper, small dick energy, jawline stuff and I've seen many zoomer guys bully each other for looks like gossipy succubi. This whole shallow snapchat tinder era is complete cancer and switched the male dynamic up completely. You can't watch anything without a guy getting bullied for his looks, you could literally just make a cooking video and people will end up messing with you because of your looks and it's also so many guys doing it too, it's completely gay.

It's also mainstream as well and men have to suck it up but somehow we all have to endure some lesbian cunts wrath because she's not a pretty succubus. These fucked up dykes even make ugly female characters in video games now just because they are butthurt while they are the same cunts that bully guys online for having perfectly normal penis sizes, their sexual experiences and looks etc.

All this superficial shallow bullshit pisses me off because these cunts present so many double standards when it comes to men. Men just have to swallow the blackpill and live with it but the mainstream tries to make us feel oh so sorry for succubi all the time and as soon as someone points out that a old succubus looks less appealing than a young one they make a whole global affair out of it.

Understand the difference between barely and none please. Looking at yourself in a lake is different from looking into a clear mirror, the lights and focus etc. It must have been quite different when these natural reflections were the only thing that would show what you look like.

Background: A person with more than one set of DNA within their body is called a genetic Chimera. Chimerism is (supposedly) rare, but there have been a handful of cases where someone will even fail a DNA test, because the DNA sample taken from their body differs from the rest of their DNA. For example, a Chimera might take a DNA test, and the results might show that the DNA was from one of his siblings – even if he is an only child.

One potential cause of Chimerism occurs while in the womb. Like when the mother is pregnant with twins, but later one of the twins has seemingly vanished. When this happens, usually it means one of the twins died in the womb, and its remains were absorbed into the surviving baby.
When this occurs, it's possible that the dead twin's DNA might survive within the survivor's body.

So, hypothetically… if the surviving twin managed to retrieve his dead twin's DNA from his own body, could he use that DNA sample to make a clone of his unborn sibling?
Let's assume that in this scenario, cloning is not controversial and is completely legal, acceptable, and safe.

The prime movement of humanity is superheated plasma of cosmic background radiation, puppet stringing along blood pressure and the 4th-dimensional potential of water consumption.

Horsepower alone can be derived as a dimension of life through pressure dynamics alone.

But my real secret is most of my family has been saved by surgery and medical science. I never touch a hospital bed. I have other secrets.

I can't tell if modern technology has just awful quality control or if I'm unlucky or pedantic. Every time I buy something there is like a 80% chance that's something is wrong with it but not in an immediately obvious way.

For example I bought a laptop and the trackpad would be laggy but when I uninstalled the trackpad drivers it would be smooth but lacking multitouch features making me think it's not a hardware issue. Yet re-installing windows didn't fix it. I asked on the internet forums for advice and got ignored despite describing my problem in detail that I thought would give a knowledgeable person hints to what could be the issue. I sent the laptop for repair and got it back unchanged. I was so exhausted by this all that I kept it since I got a deal good enough on it to ignore this issue.

I got a new monitor that got good review scores and it flickers in certain situations.

I got a new GPU and it has crashes and graphic glitches but only in certain games and situations despite normal temps and me trying out all the possible drivers.

Also often when I buy something new it ends up having scratches or dents that are just enough to annoy me but not bad enough to go through the trouble of returning the item leaving me in a state of regret once the warranty runs out and I keep noticing the fault every time.

Also it's depressing how useless customer support is and how useless people on tech issue help forums are with anything but the most simple problems. I would think they would be intrigued by strange tech problems but nope I just get ignored.

It's all so exhausting man. Consoooming should be fun but every time I buy something instead of felling excitement I just feel anxiety when opening the product to a point where I stopped looking carefully for flaws.

the problem is solely with the software. apps suddenly stop working because your android version is out of date. it should be illegal for your banking app to just stop working

Most humans are evil, which causes a conundrum for non-evil humans. I feel bad for a random human who is the victim of bullying, but considering 90% of humans are bullies, there is a 90% chance the victim would bully other humans if given the chance. Stupidity is a cause of evil behavior, which complicates the conundrum. If you can convince a normal-minded human that its ok to inflict suffering on people who don't drink milk, the normal-minded human would do so.
A lot of people may agree with the analogy, until they hear what I believe are real life examples of this analogy. Never have I heard a good reason why having sex with children or animals is immoral, or why someone who does so should suffer. Most normal-minded humans would inflict suffering on someone who has sex with children or animals, because they are evil, and they are evil because they are stupid.

Where do I go now that the internet went to shit?

You know how there have been cities that relied on a single industry for employment and then when that industry pulled out of the city the city went to shit? That's how I feel. I once had a lot of fun spending every day at the computer but now the internet communities I once loved are gone or a shadow of their former self and I have no else to go because I have no real-life social skills.

Interestingly enough i visited such a city this summer. It was an old city build by the east-germans to produce iron and it was filled with commieblocks and despair. Terrible atmosphere, stressed out needy people, nervous drug dealers standing around at street corners. meanwhile where i live it's getting pretty end-of-timey as well, there are big shopping centers not far from where i live and about exactly half the stores closed down but those were all soulless chain-stores. the little independent stores managed by actual people (not by absentee investor owners who are only in it to milk passive income) where i live for some reason seem to do well though. they were not destroyed by the ripples of the covid theater.

Getting a job has proven to be nigh impossible and it frustrates the hell out of me. It's been one week since my seventh interview, and like all others, I've gotten no call from the company. All that I am seeking is entry level minimum wage bogus, because that's all I'm qualified for. I'm mildly autistic, I'd put myself at a two or three on a scale of ten. Not impaired enough for anyone to sense it, I just come off as an awkward and quiet man. That being the case, I feel like all my interviews have been good enough, I can answer the questions given to me aptly and in a polite manner. So I really don't know I am doing wrong for the interviews. Does anyone know of any incantations to use on an interviewer that would guarantee employment?

If it needs an interview, it's not entry level. You're aiming too high. Go to a temporary employment agency and they'll give you a job at a box moving facility.

Well, I would say that my explanative skills are sub-par at best. Really doubt I'd get anywhere by trying to bullcrap a man into thinking I'm fit for work I have no prior experience in. Wish an interview could be as simple as sitting down with the manager and saying "Yeah I get that working in this greasy hell hole sucks, but just hire me and I'll do what I need to do."

think of it as less bullcrap, and more connecting the dots for them. they are looking for A, B, and C characteristics to do job X, Y, and Z. Oh, and it just so happens you're the person for the job, because you have A, B, and C qualifications and can do X, Y, an Z jobs. obviously this is all very generic advice, and the truly best advice is to mold yourself into what they're looking for. to tailor the resume, the interview, the candidate (you) to be as hirable and appealing as possible, at least until you secure the deal

>I feel like all my interviews have been good enough, I can answer the questions given to me aptly and in a polite manner.

Looks, height, race, sex, age and perceived social skills are mostly what determines the outcome of a job interview more than anything else. A young perky blond bitch can pretty much get any job she wants even if she's under qualified (that's how you end up with all these succubi that have useless jobs but still make six figures). A balding brown manlet is gonna have the odds stacked against him no matter how qualified he is.
In your case it's almost certainly the 'tism that's doing you in. I'm not autistic, but I'm a bit socially off despite my best efforts and it's definitely affected me during job interviews as well. If people pick up on even the slightest hint that you're socially different than them, it's over.

Also, certain jobs are associated with certain groups of people. You'll find it difficult to get a job in housekeeping or as a domestic cleaner if you're a man, even if the job doesn't require any qualifications. Many cafes or restaurants will only employ young succubi to serve as waitresses with the occasional hot guy. And ever see a guy working at a lingerie store? Didn't think so, even though gender discrimination is technically illegal.

For guys like you (and me for that matter) you either need to find a job that insta hires people with no interview (look into temp agencies) or develop skills that are so in demand the pool of candidates is low enough they don't get to be picky about superficial bullshit.

I think the point of Ichi's story is that the midget who hires him manufactured most of the memories. the manga is kinda complex to really understand, but its heavily implied Ichi's life was rather meh and normal, and the midget hyped up all minor bad stuff that happened unto huge abuse from bullies.
Ichi is genuinely a sadist but he has a child's mind so he doesnt understand sexuality.

Always wondered how much of the pilot manga was canon. I assume he was in jail prior to the actual series due to how badly he is treated by his coworkers.
