Sadly it'll probably close to ghost in the shell where all it's gonna be used for is political maneuvering, and normal people will still be in their slums living their lives. I'm sure doing so would probably be a very noisy endeavour, seeing how you can't go many places now during the daytime without it being very noisy and tiring.

I hear that. I went to a store last week, and I don't know how some of these retards expect to stay in business. You're not allowed to browse the shelves.

On the bright side, public transit is effectively free, since you can't pay normally anymore even if you wanted to.

>tfw have to go back to work tomorrow
>where does a week go
>heeeey moooooon

due to some mental workarounds i've actually felt rather invigorated lately. nothing about my life has changed from two months ago when i was so miserable i cried while i was driving home, but i think i've successfully put enough mental subroutines in place to have a more hardened and more positive outlook. going back to work is still benis but we'll see if the system works. i'm not miserable anymore. i feel invigorated.
(260.65 KB 513x376 benis.png)
>more hardened and more positive outlook.
That's good. It's hard to stay level these days. I was thinking this morning that I'm not getting anywhere trying to feel a particular way. I just have to acknowledge it, and perhaps let the pain pass through me like a cleansing fire. Just getting tired of feeling tired.

Also, that 502 gateway error wasn't the death knell of the site! Probably. Hooray!

I fell asleep for a few hours without accomplishing anything today. I accidentally exited the game I was playing while asleep as well and lost all progress. Now I can't sleep, but I've been explicitly told I can't call off work this week. Ah well.

Just chillax.
Some guys backported Super Monkey Ball Deluxe to the Gamecube, so I've gotten back into the series recently. I still get fucked up from Exam-C.
Do I have to?
Man I remember this manga. Can't remember why I dropped it though.
(The hyenas were pretty cool at least).
I finished reading it recently, and the last two or three chapters vindicated it, though it dragged in some places. I realized only at the end that the author was employing some degree of visual symbolism, and that it was used throughout. I had only given it a literal reading, like it was written on the same level as all the braindead garbage I read.

I feel like I probably missed out on whatever he had to say about the various broad subjects he was really talking about: happiness, nihilism, and redemption.
Good evening.
same guy you replied to. a week later i'm still feeling strong. i've started making some positive changes almost on accident, things that i've failed at for years. meaningful positive change is a slow game, especially if you've been inundated by bad things your whole life. but with will, effort, faith, strength, all that kind of stuff, you will eventually see change and take joy in simple acts of improving. after years of grit and grovel it will almost seem effortless when it clicks. even small seemingly insignificant things you've overlooked could kick it off.

i believe in you bro.
Im in dire need for phisical contact, I will now procceed to slam my head agaist the wall.
Im also having trouble posting pics fuxxx
I forgot about this place! I'll be sure to come more frequently now that I've taken a different approach to life.
From /kind/ with love
Thanks, bro. I've been on the self-improvement grind for a few years now. It feels great when the ball starts rolling. Keeping the momentum is hard, especially this year with its parade of overwhelming absurdities that lead one to question what the future could possibly hold that's worth having.

As it happens, today reminded me that while the vicissitudes of life may make increasingly absurd demands, they have yet to demand more than I have. You can always surprise yourself as long as you never listen to despair-peddling faggots.
is it /late/ for you

or morning?
What is this, anon?
this place is comfy
Time to read my book and then call it for the day. I hope everyone's day was fine.
Is zchan dead pls tell me is not trueaaaaa wtf
They were talking about that on 8chan.moe. I think someone had a screencap of the admin declaring he was going to cut and run.

What a bitch, I heard he has many failed ib already but I wasn't expecting this.
What are you testing?
I dont actually post here everytime I stop by.
Me either. The sensible thing seems to be visiting less rather than posting more.

Rules are rules, you know.
i exist
despair-peddling and doom-parroting are some of the worst things you can pay attention to. mirth and goodness in your life will always do you better.

shameful display, flouting the law of the board. you shall be sentenced to seven exposures to full noon in the daywalker gulag.
>despair-peddling and doom-parroting are some of the worst things you can pay attention to.
Makes you wonder why some are so intent on spreading it everywhere.
I would post here more, but posting is always broken.
Well, now it works.
(32.00 KB 286x288 yotsuba_drawer.png)
Why can't I post gifs?
It's still giving me shit when I try to upload images. :|
We'll just have to wawit until the admin comes.
how many of you are living in a area where lights are at nearly every corner?

personally i feel that the area i'm in now (in fact, the whole country, save for the various nature reserves and destinated areas) is overlit.
so much so that i think the life of native species of birds are affected.

but can't help it, i guess. the lights are there so that anyone would "feel" safe, should they were outside late after midnight. though i would say this thought is pretty misguided, as even in broad daylight there will be people insane enough to attack random stranger.

also, thanks to the lights (and the pollution it contributed to the sky), most of us don't get to see the stars, unless we travel to specific places.
I went out at night recently, i enjoyed the way the lighting and darkness interacted. I'm not sure if your area has removed all dark spots but if they did that would make it a lot less comfy.
Does anyone know what happened to zchan?
Got ddos'd and the admin threw in the towel. It's not coming back, but one of the vols is supposedly setting up a new one. You should probably keep an eye on 8moe/v/ for updates.
I think you'd find that darker areas have more crime. Not limited to robbery, but more predominantly break and enters, vandalism, etc. It's just easier to do stuff you're not supposed to if you can't be filmed with conventional, non-FLIR cameras while you're doing it.

Both the crime and the light pollution are city problems. "Part and parcel" as they say.
10:50 AM, on a Tuesday (July 21st 2020) I came on last night, but realized I forgot to post in this thread.

I'm getting really sick of pessimistic, nihilistic, negative fiction. It's so overplayed.
It's only good times from now on.
I love everyone here, and I love this website.
To live forever.
There's something oddly comforting about coming to this board when you're having a shit day. Even if the only reason you're feeling like shit is because of your own weakness and helplessness. It's all my fault.
I like this board, but half the time it won't let me post images.
currently there's a problem with that since last week >>1180

hope it will be fixed
I have that game.. for the DS I think. I used to play it a bit when I was younger.

I also used to play something called Marble Blast Ultra on the Xbox 360. I kind of like ball rolling games.

anyway I haven't been on this site before. it seems alright
this, the easiest solution to both is don't live in a city. there's certainly an appeal to it, but personally i feel the negatives grossly outweigh the positives.

don't say that man. whatever happened, emotionally flagellating yourself will only make it worse. getting back up to keep moving, with the new conviction to not make the same mistakes, is always a better idea. no matter how many times you fall, you always get back up. you'll come out of it stronger.
I don't like having to scroll past two stickies everytime I come here. I think the MC server address should just be a header or something.
Is it really that bad? I can't tell since I always post from a computer.
I mostly use the desktop as well.
>having to scroll past two stickies everytime I come here
what do you mean?

browse this site in catalog view.
I shall eat the world!
Hey anons, hope you're doing alright.
hey, you too!
It's so quiet here. Too quiet.
I want image posting to be a thing again.
we all do, anon

we all do.
I was overcome by sickening emotion and screamed until my throat was raw. I may never speak again.
It only seems to bring me pain, anyways.
sorry to hear that, anon
What's the admin's email or contact information?
Hope you've overcome that emotion and feel better now.
could be this (from the front page):
Just found this place. This is my first post, I'll continue lurking for some time after this though.
enjoy your stay here
>imageposting is still broken
my bones hurttt
This sucks huh? 1 post per day now. Sad to see it die. I was banned, but i hear the discord is little better. Ah well. A little piece of old internet does withthis place, and so another nail snmbeds the imageboard coffin
This is the comfiest board.
I guess it's /late/ for many of you.

damn I hate the morning rustling and noises.
Contrary to your likes, I actually prefer the chirping in the morning.
What happened to image posting?
Hello. Not sure why I keep visiting /late/ when I'm a homeless /early/ bird. But I get out of bed when it's still dark so maybe that counts?
You're welcome here regardless. It's kinda slow at the current times, though.
Well /early/ doesn't exactly exist.
reporting for duty
What division are you in, soldier?
the chirpings are fine. any sounds from nature are fine.

it’s the man-made noises though..
that wonderful invention that makes lots of noise and moves some leaves around. a hand-held motorcycle with no wheels.
you can hear birds chirping, cats meowing at night and if you go near the river you can see people having goats/sheep.
Is anybody out there?
I'm here. Delivered and recieved.
It's gunna be one of those nights, guys.

>>1486 imageboard social wiki has a decent list of options. however the more it's known, the more the quality degrades. higher quality boards will always be a word-by-mouth sort of deal, I imagine. >>1481 doing well, could be better. need more night people in my life. be with me!
>>1495 >need more night people in my life. second that, all the night people in my country are drunks or junkies. definitevely agree with your first point, though. rather have a place thats nice and quiet.
>>1500 >all the night people in my country are drunks or junkies As someone who has been one and lived with both, I can tell you with certainty that they can be very interesting people to keep your company at night. So long as you never turn your back on them they can lead you on wonderous adventures.

I've discovered this place very recently. I posted on /late/ a lot on 8chan, and I was disappointed when it shut down. The threads on /late/ were not recovered, and I do not know of any archive for this board. Goodnight anons.

The night is still young. I'll read some manga I bought while listening to the sound of rainfall outside.
Recently finished watching Welcome to The NHK. It was pretty neet. For real though, the feels. Truly inspiring. プルプルプルリン、プルリン‼

okay i fucked up i kept getting an error while trying to post a lain thread, but apparently it was working an now there's six threads for Lain.
>>1767 *Memento mori* in the cosmic time scale, we only just came into existence and evolved to use technology to build better versions of them. so don't live as if we'll be here for a long time. life can be snuffed out randomly, just like that.

>>1790 If it makes you feel any better, I have a bunch of blankets and rugs and shit tacked up over my window to try to keep the cold out. It doesn't really work.
Weather lately has been a to-and-fro of fairly hot and fairly cold. Also been getting some spring showers (quite heavy for "showers").
Happy thanksgiving, /late/! I'm thankful that I found this place again.
You ever read one of these threads that's been around for eight months, and you have no goddamn idea which posts are yours anymore?
>>1790 I feel you. It's almost December, and yet in my area we're still in that "grab a jacket in the morning only to not need it by noon" temperature range. Can't wait until I can wear the thing comfortably all day.
>>1808 Happy Thanksgiving! hope you all had a good time. i spent the whole day with family, having fun and playing board games.
I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving to you all in America. Here in France we celebrated the end of WW1 on the 11th of November, that was also the national celebration day for Poland.

Checking in on my way to bed. Stayed up about four hours later than usual, listening to chill tunes and looking through some boards on the webring. Staying up late really gives me time for solitude and reflection that I can't get during the daytime.

>>1835 it's a good anime, but also requires a lot from the viewer. the plot is purposefully ambiguous and unexplained, so you have to put the pieces together yourself. but it's a wild and incredibly fun ride all the way through.
>>1820 I know that feeling.
I bought the dvds of the anime at some flee market in Belgium alongside Ergo Proxy, but i haven't started watching them...yet. I really want to tho, i just don't take the time.
(16.52 KB 225x344 weh584.jpg)
>>1761 >>1839 i first watch Lain after a impulse purchase of the VCD set - the cover art was the picture attached. initially didn't knew a thing about Lain, as back then my house didn't have a computer or internet connection, but after like first few episodes i'm hooked. Was wanting to watch the series sporadically over a week or two, decided to binge it within 2 nights. looking back now, i guess that jump start my habit of watching anime at night, although.. there's already anime showing after 10 PM on my country's free-to-air channel.
I was on a three day streak of good sleep, I managed to go to bed at a reasonable hour before midnight. Tonight I fucked it up though, it's 4am where I am rn so eh I thought I'd post something on /late/. Thankfully I don't have anything to do tomorrow.
Getting a Thursday off in addition to the usual weekend has really given me a chance to relax. Especially with all the pressure we've been under at work. It's been causing me to act rude (well aloof, but to 50+-year-olds that's "rude") towards customers, and I've had a few fits of road rage lately just because of all the pent-up stress. But after getting to unwind for just one more day than usual, I feel much better.
I've had one of the scariest experiences of the year today, and really it was just a simple conversation. The problem was that it was like the person I knew was someone completely different. A person in denial, and I was so shocked by their cognitive dissonance I didn't know what to say. The topic in question had to do with government tyranny, and this person had shared my opinion for a long time but now with the passage of time this year has changed their mind. Its been keeping me up all night, but I will try to sleep soon.
>>1845 It's always nice to have someone who share the same thoughts and views as us, however we can't force anyone to stay the same. Some things might happened to them directly or indirectly, which caused the shift or change. That's life, isn't it?
had my wisdom teeth removed today, i've slept most of the day and now i'm stuck awake at night. never thought i'd have to get them removed, but it's recommended in case you have to later in life. but hey, my mom got some videos of me high on the anesthesia, so that's a plus.

>>1845 >like someone completely different >cognitive dissonance It starts to seem like literal brainwashing, doesn't it? Like there's been a systematic campaign of psychological abuse leveled at people in general, and which has reduced a swath of the population to begging for some jackboots to lick. 🤔 >>1844 Same. I have to remind myself often, it's just a ride. Or maybe even NAM MYOHO RENGE KYO. One needs a connection to the numinous in times like these, to "turn the volume down" on daily bullshit.

been about a week since the surgery, and i'm feeling better, pain being pretty minimal. I finally got a physical copy of SEL, ordered a dvd+blu-ray combo pack off ebay and it finally arrived today after three-something weeks, so that's nice. other than that, it's the usual holiday season. right now, however, it's a late night and i'm just chilling online.
>>1930 Glad to hear you're feeling better mate. Hopefully you'll be back to normal when Christmas comes.
Did a little wikiladdering after figuring out what "SEL" is. It is, of course, serial experiments lain, circa 1998. You know what else came out around that time? Cowboy Bebop. I thought for a moment about the voice actors and if they're still active. The guy who voiced Joseph Joestar and Jet Black passed away a couple years ago. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unshou_Ishizuka F

People will just imply their views or feelings on being alone onto us, but, i mean, if they can't stand long period of uninterupted solitude, that's on them (or their own problem) so they shouldn't make it as if it's our problem and we need to solve it in order to be or even appear "normal". what does complying to be or appear "normal" according to 'society's' standard have to do with anything. ¯\_(ツ)_/

>>2341 dumpster-diving sounds so fun, honestly
>>2345 It is, try it. I recommend a good light that you can magnetically place against the inner walls of dumpsters. Gloves are good too.

>>2438 When I dumpster dive in small towns, it's a mystery why anyone would say you shouldn't do it. In the city, though, people make a gosh dang mess. Throw trash all over, just dump what isn't useful outside the dumpster to make room to search more. That's at least a real good reason why they'd lock the dumpster at night, and it's fair that if you lock something, it shouldn't be legal to pick the lock and plunder it regardless of the purposes of its contents. But for taking garbage to be illegal itself? It's silly nonsense. Never lived in such a place. I believe it was legal in the many counties in several states that I've been. Still, if it is illegal in a given place, it may be due to the potential nuisances. Not what I'd call the best solution for the problem, but it might be the reasoning
>>2438 >what type of lamp? camping lamp, or old style one. Something to add a little ambiance. Using an empty milk jug to diffuse my phone's LED is pretty good, but probably not good for the phone.

John Koenig created a word the feeling when you realize that everyone you see, has a life as intricate and complex as yours, a life you will likely never know,Sonder. He even made a video about it, the video seemed a bit too pretentious to me, but hey he did name the "realization". I think imageboards, let anons show a side of themselves, they wouldn't show otherwise. People are like a fiction being written in real-time, one we can only read select chapters of. >>2443 >a few hundred just for my language Spanish? Either way that's an impressive number.

>>2796 Effort post please. I'm serious and not memeing despite the meme answers. I've been in those same circles for years and I need to find an escape route. >>2797 Nature is great. It's too cold for long nature walks at the moment but summer is always good.
>>2798 >Effort post please. There's hardly any place to find people now that we're legally prohibited from interacting like normal human beings. Any place that isn't closed is probably obligated to enforce arbitrary, dehumanizing rules. Good luck forming a "real connection" six feet apart with your faces obscured. And that's why I suggest parks. The other thing is that most people are products of the information age: dopamine addicts who, like more obviously problematic types of addicts, have their priorities and assumptions about life upside-down. Like a lot of addicts they don't regard themselves as having a serious problem even though statistically most people are lonely and have very few, if any, real friends. You would think people would be more interested in having real relationships, but they're not. They need an intervention and detox from social media and whatever other bullshit they do that keeps them glued to their phones. So it's not just a question of where you go, but the approach you take with people, where you're either mentally prepared to meet a lot of tech junkies, or you have some sort of strategy to deal with the addictedness of most people. It's just discouraging to think about how weird the ordinary person has gotten. I myself intend to drop into a skating club after the snow melts, because I feel like it's time to stop being a nightwalking hermit. Not sure how that'll go (I hate that I can't lurk IRL) but at least it's a physical activity.

I might make a post in the depression/confession thread. I've been feeling okay for the past couple weeks, but ever since Monday, I've fallen into a melancholic state again. It's hard to describe it. I guess I'm just tired of feeling like there is no future to look forward to. The helplessness and hopelessness. We've been losing more than gaining, and even the act of existence for one's own self-preservation has become a crie. Looking at the Heisei Era Archeology thread on smug, it's crazy to see just how much we lost and how little we've gained. >>2801 This is also part of why I've been so down. The realization just makes me feel even more helpless. My only consolation is that I live in a shitty third world country where a significant number of people don't give a shit about quarantines are just going about their business. I was taking a walk just now and passed by a run down bar with a bunch of boomers drinking shitty alcohol and playing pool. None of them were wearing masks. It made me relieved that some people still some capacity for independent thought, no matter how little. I imagine that the number of people who act like this will only increase in other countries as economic conditions deteriorate.
>>2812 I find this kind of hopeful: https://www.bitchute.com/video/eEycNqcKzTDt/ I don't even agree with a lot of what she's saying, but it's great to hear these things from someone who, just judging by appearances, would be the last person to say them. People can still surprise the shit out of you, and lately when I'm depressed I try to focus on creating the conditions and being mentally and emotionally prepared for something extraordinary to happen. >>2805 >you use double speak You can elaborate if you like, otherwise your post signifies nothing. You need to understand that anybody can throw "orwellian" or "1984" or "hitler" at literally anything.
>>2813 >I find hope in trashy whores saying fuck Canada You must think cyberpunk 2077 is the best game ever made if your standards for hope are that low. Fuck me I at least expected a corn field and a blonde woman. I'm not going to explain to you how because I want you to keep it up. It's a good way to understand the type of person you're talking to and it explains why you're linking to the crack whore shaved head style women on bitchute. The language you use tells people the things you read and interact with. You know if someone says kike they're likely in national socialist territory these days. You have similar words which say you're clearly not.
>>2814 >You must think cyberpunk 2077 is the best game ever made No, that's Deus Ex. I didn't really follow the cyberpunk drama. >if your standards for hope are that low There's hope for "wheatfields", which obviously this is not, but there's also hope that the way you've come to frame reality is wrong, or has fallen out of date. Modern political discourse is nightmarishly tedious, mostly because of its total lack of nuance.

>>3089 What webring?
>>3089 The quality of /late/ has gone down hill the past few months which is unfortunate. (such as to name a few: holocaust deniers, racists, facists, retards)
>>3097 Holocaust denial is mindbogglingly stupid, but "racist" is just thought-terminating language for anyone whose racial views fall outside the incredibly narrow range of "acceptable" political opinions.
>>3098 Listen, I'm no leftist, but it's common knowledge that race """realists""" reject modern genetics research because it contradicts their beloved 1960s books by Bertil Lundman and such.
>>3100 What modern genetics research?
>>3107 David Reich etc.
>>3109 It's obvious that every human population group is a mixture of previous group, if that's what you mean. There's no such thing as a 100% pure race, but that's frequently used as a red herring argument to try and sidestep racial differences. A lot of "racists" tend to cling to outdated ideas (e.g., the Khazar hypothesis), but they usually get the basics right in that there are real, meaningful differences between different population groups.
who here melee
>>3110 Why are these differences "meaningful"? Why do you care?
another day another shitty meaningless existence
>>3235 Darker skin means more melanin, which means less susceptible to UV ray damage. Native americans are more negatively affected by alcohol. Blacks tend to have more upper body strength. Look at the diversity of the 100 meter dash. And then we have IQ. It would be cruel to pretend these differences don't exist, because when they innevitibly play out what do we do? Blame others for their genetic shortcomings? Praise people for things they were born with through no choice or action of their own? Or what many cultures and societies currently do?: Point fingers at an imaginary patriarchy, racism, etc. We see where that road leads. It creates people like you who either fully believe something so insane it's hard to fathom, or don't even believe yourself but it scores the good boy points (or avoids gbp deductions).
>>3235 Because of the social ramifications of those differences. We can either let our knowledge inform our policy decisions or let the problems snowball and then wonder why everything has gone wrong.

I figured out how to post to this board from a text-mode browser. I managed to do that with only one accidental post. It seems I'll only be able to upload one image, because once I select an image, that fucker's getting getting uploaded immediately. I'm trying to cut back on non-text browsing, because the attractive nuisance of the internet has become a problem, and a properly "anti-designed*" solution will hopefully make my behavior less compulsive. *https://njms.ca/posts/ethical-anti-design.html I feel like it also fits the nature of an imageboard to have a deliberately minimalist interface to it. It's text and pictures, and sometimes video. A dozen or two lines of python can scrape the posts from a thread page, and a little more can display them with decent colors and formatting. An anon on smug/tech/ mentioned the idea of displaying a thread as a graph of posts, which is also cool. You'd probably center it on the OP, from which would spring some number of replies. Any post can have arbitrary numbers of both parents and children, and that non-linearity makes the idea of a non-linear display interesting. It could be a mess in practice, though— not everyone tags the OP, which would make those posts orphans like the OP itself. To understand the position of such posts, you have to consider the time dimension rather than just ancestry, such that distance from the origin/OP scales with time. I'd settle for an ncurses interface where I can press up/down to navigate the posts in chronological order, and right/left to expand/retract replies to a particular post inline. In that kind of interaction, you punt media to external programs rather than try to integrate everything into a centralized web browser interface, which is good because the inline player in a browser is never preferable to the standalone program you normally use. This sort of thing would probably just use cURL to upload posts or something, and that would be less retarded/more flexible about images than the text-mode browser I'm using. This is the sort of shit I think about after dark.

I was listening to King Crimson's Sheltering Sky earlier and felt nostalgic for an emotion I couldn't quite place. But an image dropped itself into my mind just a few minutes ago and I have to write it now before it goes. Small brick buildings erected over lightly foliaged ground--ferns, I think--half finished? I am the size of a child, and I'm playing alone in a yard with these buildings here, as well as a raised storm drain entrance beside me. Beneath the foliage the ground is only gravel. I have a ball in my hands. Greek Columns? Another image, but the same emotion, a haze like the sky before a storm. A construction machine is moving atop a hill. The rear is a set of big drums, like a roadroller's. There's, four?, drums segmented from each other, articulating over the curve of the hill. A large scoop at the front. The machine is now in a grassy yard, making some raised earthwork. I am again a child, playing, again, alone, in the shade of the earthwork. As I write this the images have slipped away from me at this point and I'm only going off on a memory of an image, yet the emotion still lingers. >>4507 Maybe I should exercise more often, corona-chan has made going to a gym unviable for me though. >pic That website's high creativity setting makes for prime album art material. >>4508 https://thisanimedoesnotexist.ai/

it is 3.45, i have been practicing drawing/luring internet for 5 hears without getting up for about 4 hours now. I don't know why but at night ADHD doesn't hit as hard at nights even when i have less distraction at day. I am kinda sleepy but i know if i sleep my drawing won't ever past the "autistic kid scratching paper" stage. I can't believe i practiced this long without adhd meds. This is a blessed night.
It’s 3:30. I dreamed I was in an affluent rural area, but somehow also my high school at the same time. I had upset one of my friends and she wouldn’t talk to me any more. I went up to the Lord’s old manor and it was full of old people scheming - local councillors I think. I wasn’t feeling good so I went to the pharmacist. People there were really sick. Slurring their words and eventually collapsing. The pharmacist lady I had spoken to went silent and stiff, grabbing me and pulling my face into her chest and holding me so right I couldn’t breathe. Then she let me go just to grab the sides of my face and started panicking to me in 3rd person. “She’s really sick, you’re losing her, she’s not gonna make it, save her, she’s about die” and as she was saying it her face would change. Even in films I’ve never seen a human face change like that. And she had her face so close to mine and she was screaming. I only slept for 2 hours and I have to get up in three but Jesus Christ I’m not sure I want to sleep again

update on the whole mantis thing: jamarmin's gone, she was a rather old mantis and kinda just died on her own after a few days. she did eat a small cricket i found for her, so that was nice. rip in peace, Jamarmin(yes, that was the name i settled on, was some gibberish a friend gave me for a name). however, seems this month has been a very blessed one. this is my second mantis. he's younger and far more energetic. if i had to guess, Jamarmin didn't last as long because she was a female who'd already laid her eggs and had nothing left to do but die, but this guy hasn't mated and therefore has not been eaten by the female. i fed him a whole katydid i found a few hours ago and he's taking to it with a fervor, have no idea how he's managing to fit all that down his stomach. something's up with my neighborhood, these mantises are showing up left and right. i ran into a 3rd one on a walk home from work a couple days ago. my guess is, with autumn approaching, this is their mating season and they're getting it done before autumn kicks in and they go under. however, with a little research, i learned that these guys can last months in captivity, meaning if i treat this guy right, he could last the winter. we'll have to see how it goes.
>>5265 That's really cool anon. I'm sorry about Jamarmin, may your younger mantis live a long life.
>>5265 F for Jamarmin. I think some mantises can live for around a month all the way up to a year in captivity. GL, and update with more photos sometime.

I'm trying to normalize my sleep schedule while also coming on here, curious to see how that turns out. And I can see with >>5459 and >>5462 that I'm not the only one with a fucked sleep schedule. Here's to /late/ reclaiming their sleep schedules.
>>5506 >So mantisbro is gone. That's unfortunate. I'm not very familiar with mantises, but I did hear that they can be rather sensitive to temperature changes indeed. In any case, rest in peace. >/ltv/ That reminds me I've been meaning to write something for /ltv/ for a while; I had something sort of sketched out in my head at one point, but procrastination got the best of me, and the mood subsided. I really should just sit down sometime and try thinking of something; not the best writer but it might be fun I suppose. Good luck on your sleep schedule, looking forward to what you have planned for /ltv/.
>>5505 Partially for fun, partially for learning. I've always been enamoured with the idea of putting together a good workflow entirely of open-source stuff that could be easily explained to beginners (for democratization of media/dirty open-source hippie reasons), so sorta kinda working towards that. Here's a test I did from a few weeks ago: https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/638891493381242902/887578413295099914/BUMPGRRL0000-0406.mp4 (audio isn't mine, it's from The F Plus)
>>3940 I would listen. I can't really contribute - I am an awful writer - but I am definitely on board.

Being disciplined never gets easier, huh? It's always hard but I guess that's the point. I want to be more disciplined and also stop indulging in self-pity so much.

>>5710 I think this is a solvable problem. If it isn't then it's becoming mor and more solvable. Compared to a few years ago, now there are multiple free-and-open-source hardware phones, not just the software but the hardware too. There are more and more tools for encrypted chat, it's just becoming easier over time. I am all for having complete privacy now and I try to, but wherever we fall short I think it becomes easier over time so even if we're not completely secure now we can switch over to new tools over time.

hey, all! it's been awhile i switched my pc's OS over to Linux and fucked over my memory. millions of pics gathered over image boards, suddenly gone. i have a decent collection again, but it's still nowhere close to the massive hoard i used to have. losing all that made me realize how much i've gotten from the internet and from boards like this. art, music, hard truths, and useful advice; i really don't think i'd be the person i am now if i'd never used the internet. i'm glad places like this are still around, and i hope they stay around for many years to come.
>>5883 >i switched my pc's OS over to Linux and fucked over my memory. Do you mean storage ie: HDD /SSD, or the actual RAM?
>>5883 you didn't try any data recovery software? if you had such a big and wide collection it might be worth it to shell out a few bucks for the real deep ones.

>>5895 I think christmas is one of the loneliest times of the year. For most people, either you stay alone with all your friends gone home for the holidays. Or you go back home and have a boring time with your parents.
>>5980 I think next year might be the first one in a very long time where I feel my life might turn for the better in a significant way. And if not explicitly better, more exciting at least. So yeah. While maybe not celebrate, I'll sure enjoy the feeling that something good might be coming if I don't fuck up.

Come play with remote control cars, shoot a paintball gun, and so on: https://remocon.tv There is a discord server for talking with people but there aren't really any members yet: https://discord.gg/CqueFZhYBf That said it would be cool to play soccer with the remote control cars while talking with people on discord or other voice chat. I tried to make this a separate post but the captcha didn't seem to be working for me.
>>6014 The paintball gun might be low on air so there's a chance it will sputter and shoot multiple paintballs at once. I might try to refill it but if not just letting you know, it's still fun to shoot. Turn the volume up if you do because for whatever reason the audio stream is low volume.
>>6014 Also if you drive the cars then put them back to charge when you are done, drive them into one of the magnets sticking out of the charging box. If a red light turns on then it is charging, if it doesn't then it isn't. Also be careful not to get the cars to flip over or get stuck. Happy driving.

>>6462 I've lived like this for years, it's really not that bad if you can manage to sometimes stabilize it around times you're most comfortable with, which to me is whenever the sun isn't out. Day time is just too active and hectic.
Today I learned how big of a sperg I am. Few weeks ago I met up with an online friend for the first time. And I thought everything was going well, but literally just today she told me she thought I hated her, that I seemed uncomfortable and angry at her and evaded questions she had for me. She now said she's not sure if she really knows me. I kinda find it comedic though, like I'm the same person. I am just absentminded and have a very monotone voice and body language. With the questions I was just doofing around cause I thought she would have picked up on my sarcasm. I guess being a sperg gotta sperg. I kinda both love and hate how everyone has wildly different interpretations of me.

>>6732 >It also has the effect of drawing people towards you to see what's wrong and often this leads to a few hugs too. As a sad guy, I strongly disagree on this one. I don't want people to come to me because I look sad nor because they feel pity towards me. Sadness is more some kind of armor against modern degeneracy in those times when society looks like some sort of sordid decaying Disneylad. Sadness as a form of rebellion. But( I'm not just a sad fuck, I also have great joices in my life, even greater because I accept sadness as a normal thing despite trying to reject it. >t. radical romantic. >>6750 Nightworking since 4 years now.

>>6964 Wandering the beach in the rain is pretty comfy.
its funny, i used to be so smug in my dismissal of misanthropes and now i am one. probably some type of coping mechanism, somewhere to direct negative feelings without an outlet. Maybe the NHK would be a better choice, but I don't think its something one can choose. Honestly, I cant stand people these days. I don't feel like myself around them, when I'm alone its almost like being a pure ego - if I want to be someone different I simply can be. No need to keep up consistency with past behaviors or thinking patterns. Consequently, every action I take can be backed by my entire will. Seeing myself reflected in the gaze of others, I am objectified and my will is lost. All that remains is habitual social interaction. Maybe misanthropy is more than just a coping mechanism.

Forgive me /late/ for shitting up this place. But I think I need to vent and I am left with no one to talk to about this without being extremely uncomfortable. I feel I have nothing to live for. Absolutely nothing. I don't even know where to start about this. I have a family which I despise. I see nothing good in them. They are cowards, lazy, dumb, hysteric, liars. I seriously can't name one good quality about them. Yet I have to see them every fucking day and it drives me nuts. I have to deal with their issues, even if the only reason these issues exist is because they can't look further than their nose. I don't even believe they care about anything. Sure, I can imagine them crying if something bad happened, but to me they seem closer to machines than people. They seem to cry because it would hurt their ego that they aren't a perfect parent, or that they might be stupid, or whatever. Not because they actually care about the issue at hand. Further then I have these classes at the circus that calls itself school. I need to work with people, but sadly. No one besides me gives a fuck about the work and they leech off me in hopes that I'll finish it. They don't actually even know how to do anything because they never paid attention. Which alright, fine. Fuck it, I can do the work. But I did that once and then I got complaints that I shouldn't do all the work and let others do it too. I fucking can't. I'm forced in this fucking circus where I have to pretend to work for hours, but can't actually work too fast anyway. I can't even do things I enjoy cause I'm monitored and have to work. So I essentially spend my days staring at walls pretending to do something else just to go home to an other circus. Part of me wishes I just had some good time in my life. But I don't know what good happened in my life. I spend my childhood and teens just keeping myself together from mental issues. Now I spend my early adulthood dealing with stress from complete bullshit. I literally don't have anything in me left besides anger. I have no people I trust, I have no escape from this situation. I can't do things I actually enjoy. I kinda miss the times when I felt something too. Even if it was sadness or shame. Nowdays I just feel nothing. Sometimes a laughter passes through. Sometimes a bit of hapiness, but the only thing that stays is the feeling of irritation and anger. What do I even have left? I feel every day I'm more and more becoming someone with nothing to lose. And I don't mean this as I want to commit some act of violence, but part of me wants to say fuck it. Just hop on a train and see where it will go. Just walk forward into the wild. It's not like I have anything to life for. I might as well just go some direction and see what I'll come across. I just haven't been pushed so much to the edge as to literally disappear.
>>7146 All extremely relatable, and I'm sorry you're having a bad time, anon. I'm 37 and grappling with a lot of the same shit. In fact, I wish I could go back 20 years and explain some things to myself. The NPC meme is real, as is Nietzsche's "last man". We do not live in a society. Don't forget, though, that resentment is itself a kind of cowardice; one which the weak feel toward the strong. That probably sounds absurd as there's nothing "strong" about these people or the terrible ways in which they choose to live. But their strength comes from inertia (having benefited from easier economic conditions) and numeric superiority, as there will always be more dimwits ready to beg for a handout than creative, productive people able to refuse their demands. In other words, don't worry about the drooling jackovasaurs around you; just focus on becoming a man of means— for escape, if nothing else. I could have fared much better if I knew the real terms of the "social contract", and how the game is to be played. I could have grown out of my slackerdom much more quickly in the knowledge that the future was going to be a parody of dystopian sci-fi. >What do I even have left? I feel every day I'm more and more becoming someone with nothing to lose. And I don't mean this as I want to commit some act of violence, but part of me wants to say fuck it. Just hop on a train and see where it will go. Just walk forward into the wild. I often imagine the joy I'll feel in the silence and solitude of some place far from civilization, just doing the things I usually do, in a building that wasn't constructed from the cheapest possible materials, by the ugliest and most half-assed of plans, without the interminable noise of construction as walmarts and highways metastasize around me. I used to imagine having a circle of friends and found meaning in that possibility, but the people around me are nothing but a drain and a menace and have made a renunciant of me. For awhile, I didn't see much point in living just to renounce the world and work remotely by satellite internet, but more and more it seems good in and of itself. People have allowed their habit of media consumption (and the concomitant outsourcing of their thinking to "experts") to turn themselves into paint-licking retards. The really direct, concrete warnings started, as far as I can remember, in the early 2000s: that the internet was changing how news media is consumed, making journalism a race to the bottom instead of the oligopoly it had been until then. Now it seems we're at the bottom, and that the only way out is for the character of the mass-man to drastically improve. WEW. Anon, I hope you're on the hunt for the best-paying job you can find in whatever your field is, and that your prospective employers know that in a field overrun with slack-jawed assholes, you're the one who actually gets shit done. We're gonna make it, lol.
>>7146 >but part of me wants to say fuck it. Just hop on a train and see where it will go. Thats what our ancestors have been doing since the dawn of time but there is now nowhere left to retreat in to the unknown. Humanity is so alien and far gone, enjoy what you can while you can and find a decent job to fund it. I've turned my anger into indifference and just watch it all burn as an observer. They all deserve nothing.

Meant to direct that to >>7159
>>7163 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Principality_of_Sealand >Land isn't free I agree with you. It would piss me off if there was not as many people roaming the earth right now. Imagine any fucking normie deciding to go in the wild and "claim" lands. That's why I am grateful to nanny State to regulate this. The nature cannot be alenated by anyone and as long as people are too dumb we need a superior governance to make choices. Ideally I would prefer no State for sure and be free to go where I want to build my "dream cabin". And state ownership is not the perfect solution as they can be corrupted to sell lands concession to private industries as many destructive to the nature than one anon chosing to live in the forest.

I'm 17 in high school, still haven't had a job ever yet. I have anxiety about it, and it's somewhat debilitating. I don't want to do fast food, yet considering working at a pizza place in the meantime. How do you guys cope with this?
>>7263 I drink, you'll learn that everyone gets anywhere by connecting with others. That is all that matters. My first day of work was fastfood and I was thrown into a lunch rush with no training my first day. Everyone was mad.

Just turned 28. The older I get the more I seem to give up on things. I feel old before my time, like I'm aging twice as fast mentally as I am physically. In my head, I'm already in the mental retirement home just idling and waiting for things to end. The inertia of life just builds and builds and it's gotten too big to fight anymore.
Turning 28 in a few months. Recently read through the Easypeasy Method, and managed to deal with my porn addiction. Nowadays I only do it when I feel like it + cost/benefit analysis, instead of it being a daily routine. Looking back, porn addiction had set me back in life. It's truly the most dangerous weapon (((they)))'ve made, second only to the usurious financial/banking system. Glad I got my life back. Currently attempting to make my own manga, so I've been lurking around /loomis/ a lot. I'll probably be posting something over there as soon as I'm done with this semester.

Hi there. Hope you're good anon.
>>7298 > It's truly the most dangerous weapon (((they)))'ve made Oh FFS, "the juice" don't care whether you enjoy erotica or not, and occasional consumption doesn't actually hurt you unless you're watching some really fucked up shit. You should probably stop listening to Jordan Peterson and friends, they're really not doing you any favours.

>>7328 Porn addiction is actually an issue, and too much porn can lead to greater dependence on more hardcore porn or weirder fetishes while also turning off against "normal" or more softcore porn. Jerking off too much also can affect libido. I've seen juice blamed for promoting weird porn as well as censoring it, so idk what the fuck to make of it. You are right though that occasional consumption isn't a problem.
I feel less suicidal now, and I'm planning to go back to therapy. Maybe things are getting better. Goodnight, /late/.

How are you enjoying summer?
>>7396 Just trying to rediscover joy and meaning in the ruins of civilization. The usual.
>>7396 >>7411 I'm just wageslaving for the summer to pretend I still feel any sense of purpose in life and distract myself from my crippling depression, gradual lessening of enjoyment in my old hobbies, and lack of friends to talk to in person.
>>7150 >The NPC meme is real, as is Nietzsche's "last man". Yeah, I feel that too. I even get the sense that we not only don't even expect any great man to come alive, we outright try to make sure it doesn't happen. If I told something like "all the best music has been made", a huge chunk of people would agree with this. It's even plain obvious in general how less we really expect if you see what people's expectations were in the past of the future. People used to talk about teraforming planets and traveling the galaxy. Nowdays poeple think slapping a second camera on a phone as some great advancement of humanity. Then outright being great is discouraged too. Every idea one has that is slightly apart from the "norm" will be attacked. I all my life even heard the phrase that "ideas don't matter, it's all about execution", which reminds me of a line, propably falsly, attributed to Henry Ford. “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses”. We really became a society of faster horses. Where nothing great can take place. Only small tiny adjustments that barely are noticable and lead to dead ends. There's even this not-so subtle bureauracy of egalitarianism in place, something ironic in times with such economic inequality as now, which seems to make poeple equal in their dullness. I even heard that nothing really was ever that great or original, which reminds me a lot of how people with trauma talk. Something good might happen to them, but they locked themselves up from risk of something good. So they start dreaming up some ad-hoc explanation how it really isn't that good, or how they don't deserve it, or whatever. We really have this kind of trauma on societal scale. Saying that though, it's not like i'm some demigod or anything. I haven't done anything yet in my life to shove what I said down anyone's throat. But at least I try. I know many people who's life starts and ends in consuming products. I don't think they are exactly terrible people, but I never want to be like them. >I didn't see much point in living just to renounce the world and work remotely by satellite internet, but more and more it seems good in and of itself. I mean, it might work, but I feel it's lacking to me. It's fine to relax, but It's not a way I would want to live forever. I want something more out of life. How exactly to get that I don't know. I hope to find out. >We're gonna make it, lol. I hope we will somehow
I'm posting... Part of me wishes that this place wasn't so empty but, another part of me likes the emptiness
>>7146 I suggest taking the initiative and going out to see what happens. I was exactly where you are now in my early adulthood. I hated everything; constantly angry. Just wanting to run away and never return. I was finally able to parlay that feeling by simply feeling nothing. I was never able to get over my fears of failure so I never took that plunge. I don't know about you, but I'm a coward at heart. That's my central issue. Instead of attempting to improve myself all these years I always gave myself an excuse to fail over and over again. I'd like to think I'm better now, but I always do. If you're feeling disillusioned, and you have an idea that makes you more happy. DO IT. DON'T put it off. Go out and live your life anon. Don't be someone like me, who stagnated and waited too long and now can't even care enough to try.

I have to say /late/, today is a very comfy night. I'm snacking musli with milk, listening to great music and shitposting online. In a day I'll be taking a trip to Grandma.
Finally bothered doing laundry after weeks of putting it off. I hate going to the laundromat, but I love getting into clean sheets at night.
>>7425 >I was never able to get over my fears of failure so I never took that plunge. I don't know about you, but I'm a coward at heart. I was one too. So I understand. But as time went on and I feel things just don't matter as much, I no longer really am that afraid. I mean, really. Outside of dying or some extreme pain I don't know what makes me flinch anymore. I genuinely feel stripped of most feelings. I'm just irritated with life. That's consistent. Some people get rewards and punishment to motivate them through their life. But everything I wanted to do in life has been denied from me. I asked my parents when I was young if they could help or provide me means for hobbies I had, and none of that was answered. I think I had been denied passing a year through my school years like 3 or 4 times. For most bullshit reasons too. Ever since I was 9 or so I had bad anxiety attacks which made me feel like I was choking or had sharp pains in my chest. As I had no one to trust for various reasons, I went through them essentially alone. My life has always been pretty bad, and all I really got on top of it was dealing with bullshit. I never had any choice. I was stomped by things outside of my control and the only thing I got from it is the ability to pick myself up from essentially anything, dedication and discipline. Which would be fine if I was older, but I'm in my early 20s. I live outside of time and space. I don't have youth in me, I'm not really mature either. Everything is clear to me, yet alien at the same time. I guess there are few things I want to do. Some hard, some a bit easier. I'll try them. But it's a bit weird to me. Why did my life need to by defined by pain with a glimmer of hope here and there? Maybe something will come out of that hope one day. >Instead of attempting to improve myself all these years I always gave myself an excuse to fail over and over again. I'd like to think I'm better now, but I always do. Why do you think you make the excuse? You implied fear, but what exactly are you afraid of? I don't think it's too late. Let's be honest, you can say that at every age. Shouldn't stop you from doing what you want. apparantly Julius Ceasar has said at the age of 30, "I have not just cause to weep, when I consider that Alexander (the great) at my age had conquered so many nations, and I have all this time done nothing that is memorable?". Few years later after he said that his name was set in hisory. Maybe it's a silly excuse since I don't think Ceasar should be a role model for people, but you get my point. >If you're feeling disillusioned, and you have an idea that makes you more happy. DO IT. DON'T put it off. Go out and live your life anon. Don't be someone like me, who stagnated and waited too long and now can't even care enough to try. I've been thinking about this too. To just let go. But it's a certain death sentence I think. I have nothing to support myself with besides my family, and living my life the way I want would mean going against them. I think either way I have to save up for at least few years if I want to survive somehow on my own. Which really makes the point of going my own way moot. I'm just so tired of waiting. I'll try to do things in my control now and see how it goes

drinking a mai tai in celebration of finally getting my shit together for school. i started an accelerated calc class and had a low C for a bit that went down to a D when i failed a test right before midterms. i re-took it and studied for a few days straight and got a 90% on the midterm. adderall helps a lot ^^; feeling very relaxed and accomplished right now. things have been really hard for a while and they're finally getting better. i've done more since last august than i have in the three years before that, i think. i'm starting to go over all the big things that have happened to me in the last decade and it all feels new... i've been very overmedicated since high school and titrated off everything over quarantine. buncha SSRIs, a SARI for sleep, clonazepam for a few reasons, and some others all at pretty high doses. since then i've realized that i *do* need medication, but now it's very minimal and the entire process has made me a new person, at least internally. i absolutely cannot describe the wealth of emotions and sense of presence that i've developed since then. i knew i didn't need all that medication, but i didn't know it was *that* bad for me. it's good to feel human for once. it's very pretty where i live right now. the awful part of the summer is over, now i get to experience the dramatic beauty of arizona monsoons for the first time, despite growing up here. my interest in hobbies is coming back, too. >>7473 that sounds good, think i'll clean my sheets tomorrow. i have a few sets and like to change em out every week or so but it has been a bit. school and work have kept me really busy. this place is nice. i'm looking forward to checking in.

>>7421 I've mostly come to terms with the "last man" stuff at this point. It's a black hole line of thought; you can't really square your expectations with how the average person thinks and acts. Dwelling on it becomes a self-negating activity, like how the archtypal internet incel endlessly fumes about externals. Ultimately he's been tricked into buying some subset of modernity's absurd notions about how life works rather than just discarding those assumptions and starting over. Lately I'm just trying to cultivate a feeling I remember from the early oughts. Things like "The Matrix" were relatively fresh in our imaginations and had a strong aesthetic appeal. Not the leather and sunglasses, but the idea that you and your clique are this sovereign, awakened elite in a sea of sleepers through whom the System has free rein to act. Through that lens, I saw how older people approached politics (which was less fraught with psychotics than it is now, but still intolerable) and understood that it was a trap for retards. It was already apparent that we were living in a Rat Utopia, but it still felt like life was full of possibility, and that the rules of the system were mutable given a sufficient application of willpower. That's the handle by which I want to take life, anyway.
