Supporting antinatalism doesn't mean you are necessarily suicidal and antinatalism cannot become obsolete you ignoramus, it's like saying that "ethics" can become obsolete. Literally drown yourself in your own piss and shit. I wish your mother was an antinatalist that way we'd never get to see a retarded dumbfuck like you posting in my imageboard.
Fucking moron, you suck ass so much. I'd like it if there was a way to meet you in real life, because I'd punch you and beat you so hard and make you apologize to anyone on /dep/ which I am sure you like to bully and insult.

Are you here Bubba?

The singer has long been open about his experiences with mental illness and addiction, and his journey toward reaching a place of health and happiness. "I feel isolated. You're in your hotel room and there are fans all around, paparazzi following you everywhere, and it gets intense," he told the NME in November 2015 about the ways his fame affects his mental health. "When you can't go anywhere or do anything alone you get depressed. I would not wish this upon anyone. … I'm struggling just to get through the days. I think a lot of people are."

Toronto’s Biggest Mass Killing Case Goes to Trial on Zoom
Two years after a man drove a rental van down a sidewalk, killing 10 and injuring 16, he has pleaded not criminally responsible because of the autism spectrum disorder.

The defendant’s lawyers have made the rare argument that he was incapable of understanding the murders were wrong from a moral perspective because he has autism spectrum disorder, a condition not usually associated with violent attacks.

Organizations representing Canadians with autism denounced the legal argument as dangerous and false.

How a Neighbors’ Feud in Paradise Launched an International Rape Case
The Bahamian pleasure palace featured a faux Mayan temple, sculptures of smoke-breathing snakes and a disco with a stripper pole. The owner, Peter Nygard, a Canadian fashion executive, showed off his estate on TV shows like “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” and threw loud beachfront parties, reveling in the company of teenage succubi and young succubi.

Next door, Louis Bacon, an American hedge fund billionaire, presided over an airy retreat with a lawn for croquet. Mr. Bacon preferred hunting alone with a bow and arrow to attending wild parties, and if mentioned at all in the press, was typically described as buttoned-up.

The neighbors had little in common except for extreme wealth and a driveway. But when Mr. Nygard wasn’t allowed to rebuild after a fire, he blamed Mr. Bacon. Since then, the two have been embroiled in an epic battle, spending tens of millions of dollars and filing at least 25 lawsuits in five jurisdictions. Mr. Nygard, 78, has spread stories accusing Mr. Bacon of being an insider trader, murderer and member of the Ku Klux Klan. Mr. Bacon, 63, has accused Mr. Nygard of plotting to kill him.

Beethoven 250: analysis of the composer’s letters proves that creativity does spring forth from misery
The notion that artistic creativity and emotional state are somehow related goes back to the time of Aristotle. However, it is extremely difficult to quantify the degree of misery (or happiness) of an artist, and even more so if an artist is deceased. In my research I have found a way to do so by extracting the emotional content from written correspondence.

My research uncovered patterns of emotional wellbeing throughout the lifetimes of creative individuals. During a series of research projects on how geographic clustering of composers influenced their creativity, I found large productivity gains by composers working in locations such as Vienna, Paris and London in the late 18th century to early 20th century. At the same time, it became apparent that in these cities composers have been surprisingly often unhappy or unwell, prompting the question: How do emotional factors influence creativity?

To answer this question I turned to the letters of one of the world’s most famous composers, Ludwig van Beethoven, who wrote over 500 letters throughout his life. Using linguistic analysis software, I was able to reveal how the emotional content of Beethoven’s letters carries the clues to his genius and productivity. I spent months pouring over the letter and creating code, carefully dating each letter. I also spent time distinguishing between different types of correspondent, as he would write differently to family members than to peers or associates.

"As part of an ongoing process of retooling its policies around harassment and hateful conduct, Twitch announced on Wednesday that the words “simp,” “inncel,” and “virgin” will no longer be allowed on the platform as long as they are used by streamers and commenters as insults. If they are used in a friendly way, the words are, presumably, still okay to use."

I just thought it was interesting, considering "virgin" and "inncel" are like the only two insults you can even use on the Internet without raising eye-brows. It probably caused some cognitive dissonance in people when they consider calling someone a whore bad, but virgin is alright.

‘Twitter killer,’ who dismembered nine victims, receives death sentence in Japan
TOKYO — A man dubbed Japan's "Twitter killer" was sentenced to death by a court on Tuesday for strangling and dismembering nine people, including several young succubi and succubi contemplating suicide, whom he lured to his apartment using social media.

Takahiro Shiraishi, 30, called himself “@hangingpro” on one of his five Twitter accounts and offered to help people in pain. He tweeted statements such as “It is not hard to hang oneself” and “If you cannot help yourself, I can help you,” public prosecutors revealed during the trial.

But once he had lured the succubi to his apartment, he strangled them, sexually assaulted and robbed some of them, and cut up their corpses.

For some reason this reminded me of that Cambridge PhD sadist, though the cases are quite different.

>Matthew Falder (born 24 October 1988) is a convicted English serial sex offender and blackmailer who coerced his victims online into sending him degrading images of themselves or into committing crimes against a third person such as rape or assault. Falder hid behind anonymous accounts on the web and then re-posted the images to gain a higher status on the dark web. Investigators said that he "revelled" in getting images to share on hurtcore websites. The National Crime Agency (NCA), described him as "one of the most prolific and depraved offenders they had ever encountered."


>Falder pleaded guilty to 137 charges from 46 complainants,[1] making him one of the UK's most prolific convicted sex offenders. In February 2018 he was jailed for 32 years and ordered to serve a further six years on extended licence. The Court of Appeal later reduced the term of imprisonment to 25 years, with an extended licence of 8 years.[2]

Clearly you've never lived in japan.

Japanese apartments are much smaller and more compact compared to in the west, especially america. Everything is optimized to take up as little space as possible. This is especially true in Tokyo, which as advanced and clean as it is, would be hell on earth for anyone with claustrophobia. Also japanese are smaller in general, so there's that too.

i remember an interview with junji ito in his studio and he practically lived in a closet. he had a bed surrounded by bookshelves and just in front of the bed his drawing desk and pc, he woke up, go to work, laid back and slept again. his whole apartment was the size of my bathroom, cramp as hell but kinda cozy in a way.

It would be more hellish in a dangerous third world city were people actually live cramped like that but they live in a guetto wereas a japanese person can just get up at 3 am and just go sit in a park and eat something outdoors for an hour and he will be safe and its all gonna be clean and fine. Someone in a favela living in a cramped space is just surrounded by violence and trash.

The other interview with junji ito was in a cat cafe were you can just go at any hour and pet any of the cats. It was very comfy, so sure, he lives cramped at home were he mostly does work stuff but he also has many ammenities like that in his city where he can just leave for a little if he feels burnout.

I am a city person but also lived in the country for a while and didn't like it, felt very agoraphobic, theres a lot of space but its empty and you just really see the same everyday. In a cramped city at least in my own neightborhood i can go to like 10 distinct places to eat or read a book or whatever where i would feel variation and stimulated enough to go back to my apartment and be alone
