I hate dogs so much, my moms dog is sucking/slurping on its foot for the past 20 minutes, I told it to stop and tried to put a toy near it and it just snapped at me, the sounds is so annoying, if you can imagine slurping your spit with your mouth open and moving your tongue around it sounds just like that


pork sausage is tasty, especially when glazed or dipped in maple syrup.

Same. I thought I loved dogs until my stepmother begun running a kennel out of the living room for rich assholes going on vacation. Dogs smaller than cats, and poodles standing 5 feet high, I've seen the worst. There are some breeds that are smart, have compassion and rational thought, but unfortunately such dogs aren't fashionable so all people get these days are violent babybiters or downy doglettes that will eat themselves if they don't get bowl of food #6 by day's end. Nobody seems to teach dogs to be quiet and for some reason it's normal to let them piss on public property to mark their territories. I've been to parks where the signs asking "children play here, please stoop and scoop and prevent peeing on the play park" have been scribbled over and thrown in to the river. Dog owners are entitled nutcases.


Dogs are incredibly impressionable and most people simply do not take the time to try and correct behaviors. My mother has a dog she’s had for 6 years now and he would seldom bark, but then my sister got a puppy who barked at everything, now the older dog barks every time the puppy does. And neither of them even try to stop their behavior. I’m lucky I don’t have to live there full time anymore.

Anon, why is hiding in your room playing videogames so appealing?
I don't know, it.. It's just fun, and safe.. I guess. Not.. stressful or anything.
But it doesn't pay the bills, does it? What are you going to do if your parents die? Your parent are going to be dead someday, anon, and you'll be all alone. What then?
Well, some people make money playing games, and a lot too… Through like, you know like livetsreaming - like podcasts but it's video, and you play games with you on camera and talk about it. I'm shy, so.. I don't know…
Well that sounds crazy. If people could get payed to podcast Nintendos, then everyone would be doing it.
Yeah, but… I don't know… I have a lot to say about how I feel right now, and how I think I can be less shy.. for starters, I -
Let me stop you there Anon. Our time is up for today. Now if you had a job instead of going through government help, you could pay for more time, but if you're just going to be sitting in the dark playing games all day, then you'll have to get by with the 28 minutes you get.
W-Wait, can I maybe call you later when I get home? I have some stuff, I really.. need to talk about, I've been having suicidal -
No Anon, I'm very busy with work even when I get home. I have grandkids to put through college, I wouldn't want to see them wind up working in some factory.

>The therapist when she gets home


I decided to stop eating pork a while ago. It isn't too hard to avoid pork, but I do love breakfast sandwiches.


Therapists are useless. I've been seeing the same one for a few years and they won't tell me what's wrong with me so I have no idea what to work on. I'm still having what I assume to be panic attacks or psychotic breaks and they haven't helped me handle them a single fucking bit.


Therapists are useful if you are in a well enough mental state to be able to help yourself.

A psychiatrist with a once-a-month session (basically so they can adjust your dosage) is a better alternative.


carrots and peanut butter are fucking great together


>Therapists are useless
No, they are great for getting referrals to psychiatrist, lol.

Anyway, some are pretty helpful for things that can be solved in situations where information or perspective can make a huge difference. Not really helpful when brain chemistry is borked.
For example some of their techniques they taught me when I was young with ADHD to cope actually were very helpful when I bothered to do them.
They also helped my mom a whole lot when she was recovering from her stroke to reorder and rebuild her thoughts and cope with the changes the damage caused in her day to day life.
However they were univercially useless when it came to my autism or when I was a kid they though I had antisocial personalty disorder but held off on giving me a official diagnosis, and tried to me, not listening to the fact that it was my environment that required me to act out. When I was older and in a different environment, what do you know, no symptoms of antisocial personalty disorder whatsoever. Because wow, when you aren't forced to be around violent assholes you don't have to act like a violent asshole just to survive. You have the luxery of being a decent person who doesn't have to be on guard all the time. But whatever.
Still couldn't figure out the autism thing though. I treated that myself by learning social skills from books and practicing on my own, as they were no help at all. It will never feel natural and I will never (nor do I want to be) a normie, but I can competently interact with people without seeming like a alien or crazy person.

Can's speak to other issues though. Like I hear they suck at dealing with mood disorders and personality disorders.


The latter will not help him, either.


Dude, are you 3 or something?
This isn't a hidden secret.


i've never seen anybody put a carrot and peanut butter in their mouth at the same time. you may have found out before me somehow but i discovered it all on my own!

It is a super common snack you give to small children to get them to eat vegetables.
I don't think I know of anyone IRL who doesn't know of or hasn't had the combination.
Celery is also super common. There is a variation of the snack called ants on a log that is a celery stick with peanut butter in the middle and raisins put in the peanut butter.


Not him, but this is the first I'm hearing of this strange cuisine. Perhaps you should consider that not everyone shares your experiences.


Do where you live they don't use peanut butter or something?

This shit is common everywhere I have ever been.


I live in the States.


it might be common where you live but i've lived all over the states and can't remember anyone eating carrots with peanut butter. honestly sounds like a food combination that my family would make fun of me for eating in front of them "oh wiz is mixing his food again haha what did you make this time" something like that

The Confederate states maybe in a alternative time line where they banned peanut butter because it was invented by a black man?
But because of the singularity on earth 2, realities are starting to cross and you somehow got ahold of a jar of this mystery wonder and are not posting about it, not realizing that your signal is crossing into alternative universes as well, arriving in a universe where peanut butter wasn't suppressed and thus it is common and well understood that it can be used to as veg dip.

Let me ask you, is the use of ranch dressing with uncooked vegetables also strange to your people?
What do you eat on sandwiches will jelly?
Do you even have jelly…or sandwiches?


As the US National Peanut Board confirms, "Contrary to popular belief, George Washington Carver did not invent peanut butter."[4] Carver was given credit in popular folklore for many inventions that did not come out of his lab. By the time Carver published his document about peanuts, entitled "How to Grow the Peanut and 105 Ways of Preparing it For Human Consumption" in 1916,[5] many methods of preparation of peanut butter had already been developed or patented by various pharmacists, doctors, and food scientists working in the US and Canada.[6][7][8]


Chu Chu Rocket was the first console online multiplayer game, I think. I loved this game and the novelty of playing with people from japan.

I might get around to setting up dreampi one of these days


that's awesome they reverse engineered the server. i've always wanted to try for simple early 00s games that had multiplayer


How's it going my wizfriends? I have nothing going on in my hollow life right now. Aside from changing from laying down with computer (on floor) to standing up with computer (entertainment system cabinet as a standing desk) a week or so ago. I feel better because of that. Think I'll nihilistically commit to a useless project like making an operating system.


If you're into standing you should get a VR headset. I've been standing for 3-4 hours a day since getting Skyrim VR so that I can play it. I can't say I feel any different but I do enjoy playing Skyrim in VR.


>Skyrim VR
How may of those 3-4 hours are spent in the company of nude mod'ed she-elves?



They're male where it counts.


it's not even 5pm and i already want the day to end


I've spent 18 hours in bed today, sleep was most likely not more than 6.
I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing with my life anymore, I just want it to end.


sometimes i put some talk radio on and doze off
but if i do that i have trouble going to bed early (9 to 11pm that is)


I literally don't know what to do anymore.

I'm just sitting here at my PC doing nothing.


May it be end times.


do you know of any good time wasters? I like crosswords and geography quizzes


Draw, write, sculpt, model, compose, fap, exercise, game, chat.


Cracking the cryptic has some good sudoku puzzles everyday. You can play them if you follow the link in the descriptions, and then if you get stuck, you can watch the video to figure out their weird tricks to solving them/figuring out the rulesets.


There are more than just 2 Earths–many more, in fact–and they mutually impinge on each others' boundaries at a velocity which would daze our mortal minds. What you call "reality" is shifting at this very moment. You are just not aware. Last week you were a giant spider, as was I, and we argued over the edibility of some species of insect. This week you are here talking about peanut butter.


i really dislike the scenes in anime where they eat food, especially delicious looking food, or feasts, etc. it does nothing for me, i find it kind of annoying, and i usually skip past it. i dont know what it is, maybe because they arent really eating food and they make weird sound effects and its not realistic enough to make me think if it as food. real food stuff can be cool, especially when they show them preparing and cooking it. but with anime it feels empty and weird. like a time filler, when they need to pad time they just throw in awkward eating scenes and make the characters overreact like theyve never had food before in their life

some other things i dont like in anime… succubi with glasses, floating magical animal mascots, crying babies or children. also kissing and relationships in general, i just skip it… i really just want to watch guys fighting each other in giant robots or maybe in medieval times with big ass swords.m

Full agreement. What are some shows that fit your criteria?
I plan to get into some mecha series after some additional japanese studying.

As for my crawl post
Recently been thinking about making a chan that is focused on ascension.
Surely this is a bad idea, no?
Moderating a chan and cultivating a quality culture seems difficult.
Not worth the effort for the output either.

Sometimes I wonder if there's a neurosis at play when it comes to anonymous posting.
Although it's enjoyable to put effort into posts, I sometimes feel as though I'm missing something larger, it's myopic by nature
Wouldn't the time be better spent studying and writing in one's own journal, or something to that effect?

My eyes glaze over whenever manga characters start going on and on about food and what ingredients were used to make them.

>succubi with glasses

You are a homosexual.
>floating magical animal mascots
Alright, you just don't like cute and fun things.
>crying babies and children
>kissing and relationships
Reasonable and understandable–
>guys fighting each other in giant robots
Yes, but why not have giant robots AND cute succubi?



Ascension? What kind of ascension are you talking about and how far would you be willing to go for that chan if people stick around? Would you be willing and able to moderate out bad information and possibly take your community even farther if it grows large enough?




Being afraid of evil spirits is just the adult version of being afraid of the dark


I agree. I also skip songs. Basically the same things I skip in Tolkien novels. I liked shokugeki no souma though.

>What kind of ascension are you talking about
By ascension I mean elevating oneself beyond their current condition; namely, their consciousness.
Most imageboards are purposeless in nature, a product of the times

There are many facets one can take to begin the process
There'll be a Contract that every user needs to adhere to
This Contract can be modified through discussion
for example, no talk of sex, modern news

The golden rule would be:
Every poster wants to elevate their consciousness and adhere to Nature.

So, being vitriolic under circumstances violates the rules, that's spiraling down.
You see many venomous peoples out there nowadays

>and how far would you be willing to go for that chan if people stick around?

I foresee discussions around understanding reality.
The paths available if one wants to go beyond reality.
A library to access.

>take your community father if it grows large enough?

This is a great question, and shows how naked I feel in the event this passes.

It also shows how shaky my beliefs are still.
I am not sure whether it is smart to curate and give information willy-nilly.
But the world I want to see is one where information is shared freely amongst good-natured peoples.
But when information you worked for is taken by myopic peoples who'll hurt you… but yet did I really work for it?

Nevertheless, you can see why I play with the idea. Because the probability of success is rather small.
And within that small probability of success, I'm not sure if the fruit is comparable to the effort involved.

The current path paved seems lonely and bare, but perhaps that's what one needs to prepare for instead.
Because an optimal community requires two things:
1. a desire to improve everyone else
2. trust
And we're migrating toward trustless systems.


My $175 earbuds I brought two years ago finally decided to die. I barely even used them but the planned obsolescence is real.


What aspect of them made you decide that they were worth the pricetag of $175? Was it because they were a brand name, or endorsed by some influencer? If none of the big selling points advertised with them was that they were engineered to outlast other models, then yeah you can expect them to just expire eventually. Earbuds are tiny fragile things by nature, with a lot of current running through them.


Cheap, sub $100 headphones were complete shit at the time. It was at the start of the lockdown where everyone was buying up electronics, too.


man fuck wireless earbuds
i hate wireless shit
give me a fucking cord


The headphone jack is going the way of the dinosaur thanks to Crapple. Just get wireless headphones bro. I used to be like you - against the wireless trend. But it's time to stop living in the past. Embrace wireless. Except wifi - fuck that shit. Run Ethernet to every networked device that'll take it.


I want to strangle every norman I see wearing airpods. They look so stupid. I just want to push them down and kick and beat them senseless.


I got a pair second hand from my sister, and they're surprisingly nice. I thought they'd get lost and have a shit battery life but they come in a case that charges them too, so they stay together and charge whenever you're not using them. I will say that I fucking hate how wired connections disappeared over night. Especially on my desktop, I now have to use a wireless set of headphones, and when opening certain games or programs it will randomly switch audio channels and it's always at max and if fucking blasts my ears out every time. Wired was so much fucking easier, I put it in and it goes. And it's so inconvenient pairing the damn things and having to worry about fucking battery life for things that use to run perpetually.
