Wide screen 16:9 aspect ratio has become the standard for TV shows including movies in most cases and if a movie is not 16:9 it is nearly always going to be a widescreen aspect ratio save for some arthouse films.

Widescreen is standardized regardless of what works best for the project and people dislike watching a square and come to expect a widescreen experience.
This is not a problem when the show/movie/anime is made to work with widescreen but this is not always the case and a lot of media is widescreen *just because* so the result is disappointing sadly.

I will not claim I prefer 4:9 in all cases but 4:9 can be much better with a different focus and less demand while viewing. Why have extra screen if you are not doing anything with it? most anime for example do nothing with their extra screen space.

Both aspect ratios have their pros and cons but people are not keeping these in mind when releasing media and the consumer is unwilling in most cases to watch squares.

What are your thoughts?

I'm really not… I've been using fluxbox longer than I've been on /g/ (2014 vs 2016) because that was the first DE I saw when I installed slackware. It's nice, easy to configure, and doesn't take up much of anything. Also, last time I checked people on /g/don't like fluxbox, but I haven't gone there in eyars as no good tech discussion actually happens there.

>I don't think I need to go into why

Yes, you do. Otherwise you are clearly bullshitting and either don't know what you're talking about or are simply buttmad at my desktop for no conceivable reason (or both, which is realistically the most likely case).

By the way, you type like a child. Your lack of punctuation and your irrational anger at random things makes you come off as a child.

(Aimed at people who were actually alive before 1992)

Anyone else notice that we seem to be stuck in a cultural malaise? Like the present doesn't give way to the future anymore? A permanent nostalgia trip for nostalgia? Gen Z being the most unoriginal generation yet?

I got some theories about this but it's all stuff from the "End of the Wizards" threads, I'll post them later but I want to know what other wizards think or their experience of this are.

My theory is because everyone became only able to consume due social media and modern entertainment. However, every trend and "culture" is something recycled, at least mainstream ones and the current trend is political and as people became consumerists they rely to old things back when things used to be good

 No.287436

The internet is moving too fast. In essence the internet is now the face of modern culture and due to trends living and dying within the space of a few weeks and everyone having ADD, nothing sticks. Culture has become a formless and chaotic cacophony of short lived memes and moments which are swiftly discarded to be replaced by the next. Consume and move on. Modern 4chan is one example of this and the constant recycling of Wojaks. I've noticed that "nostalgia" has become a big thing though, especially among Gen Z who try to co-opt a lot of millennial things from the late 90's/early 00's. TV, video games, anime, music etc Hell I've even seen them discuss Newgrounds as if they were even alive during its early golden age. I think it's jealousy and a perceived missing out from when things were last "good".

I just come here every once in awhile and generally keep to myself. I think interacting online is pretty much over for me, which sucks when you have no friends irl. The only other thing i like is a few hikki/neet youtube channels i've found but i don't really interact with them. I pretty much cut out 4chan completely last year. Of course it has been dead for years now but i think the lockdowns made it too intolerable even for me. Honestly shocked how fucking awful it is now.

I got oral herpes from a family member, through non sexual means, last year and I think it is hilarious. Despite never kissing anyone, I like everyone in my family for generations now, have herpes. If this was 100 years ago I would legitimately believe it to be a family curse. I find this very amusing for some reason.

Luckily my body doesn't seem to be to bothered by the herpes and I only get a little if I'm stressed physically or mentally. I have only gotten one sore outside my mouth thus far, so it isn't very obvious I have it even during break outs. When I got it originally I didn't even notice. A family member almost died from their initial contraction, so I got pretty lucky with everything.

Any other wizards someone manage to snag an STI somehow, and what have been your reactions?

just for fun, you should try to spread it as much as possible (by non sexual means) to punish the normies for having sex. jack off on toilet seats in gender neutral bathrooms, spit on shit and get your body fluids on things. it will be like a web. if you infect a couple people, they will in turn infest a couple people of their own, and soon you will have ruined the sex lives of thousands of normal shitters

>ruined the sex lives of thousands of normal shitters
The only thing that can stop a human from having constant violent penetrative sex with other penetrable humans is higher learning and logic capabilities, like all of us here have and normalfags don't have because they're have stupid.

Genital warts? They'll still fuck
Herpes? They'll still suck
Every medical condition has a large group who fetishize it. Remember 50% of humans have herpes and 100% of herpes owners are either people who got it from someone sexually, or are going to give it to someone sexually. it's math doesn't lie. do you think that 50% is abstaining? No they don't care, that's why the number of all STDs is rising, because people keep having sex the sexually ill. sick truth wizards don't let any humans touch you.

The biggest event for my dad all week was watching football games. Sometimes I think about how damaging it was. My little brother and I would ask to go play catch, or ask to go on some kind of family adventure on the weekends. Nope, he had to watch the game. For 2-3 hours every Sunday, we would watch our dad literally worship the TV, yelling and cheering for men who didn’t know he existed. Meanwhile all my brother and I wanted was to have the same kind of enthusiasm shown to us. It never was. We grew up knowing that he planned his weeks around football, not his own family. I truly, deeply, resented him for it. I will never forget it. It’s the reason I won’t make time for him. I hope he dies in some shitty nursing home wondering why his kids hate him so much worshipped the local sportsball team. Spent more money on merch he'd wear 20 times a year than my own clothing over 2 years.
Do you still talk to your parents? I ended up enlisting and told my father, his words were "you'd better get a good lawer to get out of it".
Meanwhile I was eating out of dumpsters in a 80% spic and nigger city and sleeping in condemned buildings with heroin addicts.

it seems like a lot of people don't question authority, and when they do demand change it is to support our government and cultural values rather than oppose them. like all the black lives matter rioters, they weren't rebels or revolutionaries. the US stands for diversity and multiculturalism and equality for all, which is why they had the support of pretty much every major company. they did all that just to push us in a direction we were already headed. or they just did it to loot.

i feel like commies and nazis are the same way. like i used to be a NEETsoc when i was a teenager, but what really turned me off from it was it seemed like all the people that preached these kook ideologies all tried to promise their own version of the american dream. like under their ideology you would be successful with your work, be able to get a wife and have a family, and that under our ideology these prospects are obstructed. and i thought that was retarded because i dont want that shit. like it doesnt address the fatal flaw of government at all. mills makes a distinction between absolute government and absolute rulership. it seems like because we have a democracy, everybody thinks that we are "free" for some reason. but after the lockdowns last year, i never want to hear anybody say that shit again. like seriously fuck off. fascism and communism would just be the same thing except they stop pretending like we have a say in government.

i hate soceity like fundamentally. i dont think it can be reformed, i want it gone. rousseau says that government is slavery, and the common interest of society is carried out by making everyone a slave to everyone else. i think about this every time i am working a shit job for shit pay that i am actually just being a slave for my supervisor and for the stuck up consumers who buy our dogshit stuff. and you dont escape if you start your own business. you are just a slave to your creditors and your customers. i mean the whole point is to meet a demand. their demand.

i think it is a lot easier for people to never think about that because of how much more involved we are. most people are being bombarded with system affirming messages anywhere they are with phones, the internet, television. i read this book called manufacturing consent, and basically the whole point is that the media self censors itself to promote preserving the status quo to defend social hierarchies. it basically serves as a propoganda tool for the Post too long.

>And what is the "status quo"? Because as far as I see it, alt-right or fascists scream at and fight with the liberal globalist mainstream they claim controls everything. But sjws and commies fight against the oppression too, hahaha. How can both sjws and alt-righters revolt against the same system? Hahaha.
The usual response from those people is despite corporations and politicians implementing policies to serve them, they only do that because it's popular but don't really mean it. That way they get to play pretend being dissidents while marching lockstep with the system.

Imagine you are holding a victory march through a town. The companies you burnt down the year before are marching alongside you, journalists are there to propagate your propaganda, and the police are there to protect you, but you still perceive yourself as a rebel with no power. How else could you reconcile the cognitive dissonance that provokes?
