I'm getting fucking tired of cleaning up this CP. Glad my workplace is insanely lax (to a fault) and I have some privacy so I can monitor /baw/ and clean it up with little concern of someone digging up my history or seeing it over my shoulder...

The other day, I was thinking how neat it would be if +4 had a "meta mod" system like gamefaqs used to have. Basically, if enough people reported something, it would be automatically deleted. I don't know about anyone else here, but I'm here at late nights, and if anyone else is, enough of us could report the CP and get it deleted before you go to work.

Of course, there's two big problems with this
The first is that it's an easily abused system (this is exactly why Gamefaqs nuked it)
The second is that it depends on Anonex being here.

I thank you for cleaning up. Sucks that you can't even browse worksafe websites at work without worrying about running into illegal shit.

>> No. 389958
You're quite welcome.

Outright deletion is a bad idea, but I've had similar ideas about such a system. Basically, once it reaches that threshold, it would become hidden; if it's not responded to by a mod in a reasonable period of time (for 4chan, an hour or two; for +4, 24 hours), then it automatically becomes unhidden and cannot be hidden through the system again. (A mod marking it as OK would also mean it can't be accessed again.)

Ideally hidden threads would not contribute to knocking threads off of page 10, and certain conditions could be used to lower the threshold (for instance, no text submitted with the OP image, or the OP image is of very small file size/dimensions which could indicate a crap image just used to be able to make a topic)

This can still be easily abused, but the results of the abuse would be far less detrimental (if the thread gets hidden and then marked as OK, it would bump to the top of the board.) But, yeah, that would require Anonex to be around, so it's all conjecture for now.

My job is a miserable piece of shit, thanks largely in part to the incompetent asshole higher-ups.
My niece is a heroin addict and her mother is an insane harpy who is the worst possible person she could be dealing with right now. I'm too far away to help out directly.
I'm in love with a close friend who is also a married man. I don't want to feel this way about him but I don't know what to do about it.

I fall for my friends sometimes, too. Not so much the ones that are dating, though. I don't think there's anything you can do. You can't help how you feel, but you can help your actions. If you think you're going to do something stupid, then be ready to distance yourself before that happens. If it bothers you that you can't be together and you can't get over it or be happy for him, then it might be a good idea to just let it go and move on.

Shitty, but you can change jobs, and it's generally better to do so while you have a job, even if it means your evenings will be taken up with job hunting
>My niece is a heroin addict and her mother is an insane harpy who is the worst possible person she could be dealing with right now. I'm too far away to help out directly.
Ultra-shitty, but if you're too far away to really do something, then you're too far away. That's a sticky situation legally, especially if your niece is still a minor
>I'm in love with a close friend who is also a married man. I don't want to feel this way about him but I don't know what to do about it.
Hyper-shitty. You should probably limit contact and not follow that up. Maybe trying dating around a bit, find someone else to take your mind off your friend.

Well, I told my ex about what happened between me and his brother. He punched his brother and told him he never wanted to see him again and drove over to my house to smash a sewing machine he got for me all over the driveway. Didn't say a word. He was crying/growling. Well, I came clean and so ended that chapter. At least I won't be drunkly trying to explain that I still love him and shit.

Lol his brother got all buttmad at me when I told him I honestly didn't give a fuck about him and was just sad I ruined my relationship with his shit he immediately deleted me on all social media and told me to delete his contact honey I already did

Uggggghhhhhhhhh... I know I promised that girl I like that I'd let her call me to let me know when she's free, but a) it's been over a week since she promised that, and it wouldn't surprise me if she's forgotten at least, that's what I'm hoping and b) it turns out I'm going on holiday next week.

So, I guess I'll call her to let her know, maybe ask her if she's on Skype or something. I like the idea of talking to her at least once a week - last time I tried texting her we ended up being unintentionally brusque with each other.

Although I should have stated that the starting > and the other two >s were different people. My bad.

So, quick question. One of my cats, on occasion, sounds like she's trying to cough something up, or make herself sneeze. During those times, her meows get really whiny and phlegmy. She's going to the vet sometime this week, but she's been doing this since January. She also may have a bit of arthritis. What do?

Is this a white collar position? If so, it unfortunately sounds like they already had a candidate in mind and were likely filling some required interview quota.

Still, do the usual interview followups with a letter to the interviewer thanking them for their time/opportunity, expressing your interest in hearing back from them good or bad, etc.

>> No. 390020
Look at it this way: If they have an HR policy for a set number of interviews they have to give per position before it can be filled, they probably have a myriad of other HR bullshit you'd have to deal with. This is actually worse if the company is small, because it means that someone high up the chain is authoritative and controlling (to the point of wasting everyone's time to feel in control.) If it's large, the policy was probably put in place over many years to avoid lawsuits and over-protect the company, which is sort of understandable.

So, while it would have been a job, decent chance it would have been stressful thanks to internal policies. So you likely dodged a bullet there.
>> No. 390026
Yeah neither of you are really in the right here.

Calling something out as "stupid" does not make you right or morally superior, it just makes you sound like another form of complainer, one arguing for a side that's a little less than savory, without any actual input or critical thinking. So, Proto might be a little insufferable, but you're in the same boat.

Its really awesome when people you knew and had a mutual attraction with but things just didn't quite happen with find you like two years later and want to catch up and they seem to have gotten over the things that turned you off before and you're a better person now, too, and I remember the first time we hung out he wanted me to read his mfuckjng full length novels he wrote when he was twenty and we would eat lunch together at work and use weed oil as salad dressing and taking shrooms together. I actually liked him, but it was stupid young guys being insecure and desperate to impress, you know? Not to memtion bullshit at work. But no matter what, we could've been good friends and he likes dungeons and dragons, too.

What kinds of booze do you guys like?

I really don't have a sophisticated palette when it comes to alcohol. My dad and I will have a drink, and he'll offer his opinion on the taste and how he prefers it in comparison to other brands, and it all just tastes the same to me. As I never enjoy the taste, I usually end up getting whatever is cheapest as I can never tell the difference anyway.

I bought some whisky the other day. My sole motivations for buying the kind that I did was due to it being on sale, and being amused by the picture on the bottle, which was a hologram of a guy whose eyes darted back and forth when you moved it.
>> No. 390087
I rarely drink. I'll usually keep a bottle of something, likely whiskey or vodka, on hand for when I feel like it, but it will take me months to go through a single bottle.

But I'm the same way; I have no real palette for alcohol. If I have anything on hand I'll usually really water it down with something else. I do like a good hard cider, but I get them on rare occasion.

Which is funny because my dad brews his own beer, has for over a decade. That might be why I don't care for it much; he would brew it in the basement, which is where my bedroom usually was when I lived with my folks, and when he was doing the "cooking" portion there would be a really heavy smell like dry dog food that got soaking wet. Not gag-inducing, but not a good smell, and it could be overpowering. So whenever I think about beer I'll remember that smell and lose almost all interest.

Thanks for the input guys, it's appreciated.
For the job situation the plan is to find another less problematic job in the same company. If I'm unable to do this then I'll leave the company entirely.
For my niece, I love her and I can support her emotionally and morally. But until she cleans up (which I hope she can) I can't support her financially. I just hope this doesn't have an unhappy ending.
For the guy, I can only wait for it to go away. Part of me suspects the feelings aren't one-sided, but he's devoted to his family so it's a dead-end street. He's a very good friend (and co-worker) and I'll miss him terribly if/when I leave.
My period is over, for now. My Dr. and I have decided to try me out on a new birth control formula next month. Fingers crossed that this works.
Am I healthy yet? I'm not certain but I may be on my way there.

For one, if the ground has been overly-dry, it won't be able to absorb as much water as it has in the past (think of trying to clean up a small amount of liquid with a dry sponge; it just pushes the liquid around at first).

For two, drought or not, if they get far more rain than usual the various run-off areas and such won't be able to contain it, leading to flooding.

Which discusses a forum-user's brother-in-law that went missing recently. I live in the midwest and don't really have anyone to spread this around to, but I figure I'd drop it here. I don't even know these people and just knowing that some guy disappeared like this makes me incredibly uncomfortable and sad.

This is far more prescient than you can know, since >>390174 (though not with me in it, because again fatty fat fat). STORY TIME.

So this is Wyatt. Wyatt was abandoned in a foreclosed home for nearly two months, a home that was completely boarded up. Neighbors saw him in the windows now and then and tried calling animal services, but they never responded at all. Eventually they got ahold of the rescue I volunteer at, and someone may have busted down some boards and retrieve him.

When we got him he was extremely malnourished, covered in maggots (amongst other things), dehydrated, etc. We're not sure how he survived in there, but certainly he wouldn't have much longer. An infection in his eye was so bad that the whole thing had to be removed. He was coddled and nursed for 3-4 months, we eventually got national attention for it (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/05/foreclosure-pets-cat-colorado-locked-in-home_n_3875309.html), and, aside from the missing eye and an odd gait with his hind legs (we don't know if he had that before or if it was from being in that situation), he's quite healthy and happy now.

So he will make for a good FB avatar.

I wonder if I should get away from tumblr and that whole crowd.

I mean, I believe that there are a lot of social causes that should be talked about, especially now, as we sit on the brink of technology forever changing almost everything we know about classic society. But I see it as more of a goal of informing, and attempting to change existing structures to be more accommodating to people of all creeds. The thing is, I think it's making me a little paranoid to real world situations.

Additionally, in my own corner of reality, I did not realize the extent to which the SJW crowd had become truly corrosive. The stories I keep hearing are of people with absolutely no guidance, no schooling in the very delicate balances associated with discussing these issues. They act out of anger and victimization, using incidental instances to fuel their rage as hobby, rather than drive to discuss actual social change, the future of social policy and how to affect real change, and what that looks like for people. I think what churns my stomach the most is that, at their worst, they look exactly like the 4chan hivemind on their worst days: spoiled, conceited, and out to ruin lives rather than truly affect positive change. I saw social justice as a kind of healing, an atonement for values I had previously held and acted on in ways that I myself do not savor anymore. But the overall tone of the movement is... disheartening, to say the least.

>> No. 390209
Not that guy/girl, but it's harder than you think. SJW has spread to the extent that even a lot of fandomcentric Tumblrs will gleefully reblog SJW posts blindly in between more "normal" posts. A lot of them may not be active participants in SJW asshattery, but the majority of them are nevertheless silent supporters and enablers for it. It's actually disappointingly rare to find people with a healthy perspective on social justice, who will only reblog SJ posts with actual legitimacy (e.g. calling out actual examples of double standards that aren't astroturfed or selectively edited) while ignoring or disputing the more outrageous claims (e.g. BRAVE HAS NO BLACK PEOPLE THEREFORE IT IS RACIST BOYCOTT DISNEY GRRRR).

If you don't want to go totally cold turkey on Tumblr then just stick to following fanart-only blogs, close friends, or people with a history of being independent thinkers and level-headed on social issues. Or jettison the fandoms with a tendency to pull ridiculous SJW bullshit like Superwholockvengerfreekyojinstuck while sticking to the smaller ones which tend to have older and more rational folks.

The problem is that my approach to what I consider social justice is highly divergent from what the more stereotypical SJWs look like. Though I follow some blogs that post somewhat incendiary opinions, I don't follow any blogs that are just outright arguments, and I tend not to reblog anything that might constitute hatred or inarticulate, unsourced points. IMO, the best way to carry out social justice is to give voice to disenfranchised perspectives, but to back those voices with cit-able data and articulate, reasonable opinions.

Due to the atypical nature of the blog, it means I actually am somewhat isolated from what appears to be the more public and obnoxious aspects of the whole SJ thing. Still, as anon says, one toes a fine line between informing and enabling. Stepping back purely to fandom blogs or more non-divisive material seems disingenuous; whatever my thoughts on social justice, information is my one true love, and in that regard it is more difficult to remove myself from difficult and dangerous viewpoints. The nature of the modern world increasingly poses technologies and moral quandaries that necessitate we move past the hatreds of old to greater understandings, least we find ourselves ham-stringed by the hatreds of anew. Still, the increasingly toxic reputation of the SJWs has given me pause over just how much of my blog might be constituted as tacit approval. And the paranoia wrought by constantly exposing myself to potentially unfounded opinion seems to have worn on my nerves and my real-world satisfaction a bit.

A lot of them are reactionary and awful, but some are people who are interested in social justice but don't want to be associated with SJWs because of the reputation SJWs have.

The interesting thing was that it started with self hatred and a desire to feel better about themselves. They wanted to stop hating themselves, so they started hating others. They wamted to feel special, the

You know, I've seriously always wondered why lesbians are so into yaoi. Even the ones I've encountered in real life who are proud and confident about their lesbianism nevertheless constantly obsess over male heartthrobs like Darren Criss and get way more invested in male/male ships all the way up to drawing or seeking out bara porn than they do in ships with girls in them.

They're not though. Some of these people I know in real life and they're really chill about their sexuality. It just strikes me as weird that they identify as only being into the same sex when their attention is predominantly focused on the opposite. Why not just identify as bisexual if that's the case? They seem comfortable enough with bisexuality that I don't think it's because they're really closeted bisexuals hiding as lesbians, they truly identify as the latter despite being obsessed with guys. <aybe it's because it's that guys don't arouse them like girls do, but then why all the cock laden porn?
>> No. 390239
Maybe it's not for the cock, but for a different angle on homosexual relationships, especially since homosexual men are more taboo than homosexual women.

It's not so much about being attracted to the gender/genitals, but the act that goes along with them.

You know how in dystopia stories, 'perfect' societies are shown for cruelty and callousness, imperfections in the system that make the actions really inexcusable?

Well, what if the twist was a society like that was, say, destroying the lives of the lower rungs of the population in a way that benefitted everyone else, but there wasn't some petty twist that it was flawed? What if instead the system was perfect, these people would live lives that drained society, and even hurt it, and their disposal was a total positive, everyone benefitted from their destruction despite the shock and sorrow it caused to those closest? What if there was a world where empathy was illogical and the facts proved it, and giving everyone the chance to live would utterly destroy utopia into something worse than it was built on?

>> No. 390250
Except that the obvious outcome is that the system is ultimately proven to be untenable. That's the issue of real life; there is very much a portion of society that consolidates wealth and uplifts themselves on the attention of the rest of society while that society slowly decays.

That's the lie of all "perfect" societies in dystopian fiction: society is uplifted upon the moral that they are essentially better than the dregs. The problem that always occurs is that when the dregs are truly examined, they are amongst the best humanity has ever produced in terms of being human, approachable, likable, people you can actually empathize with. Elevated Societys' persecution of these people is inevitably proven to be a propagandistic lie, one they exploit to convince the middle of society that those below them are not worth helping, not recognizing the massive cognitive dissonance in preaching such rhetoric to those "below" them.

If you're saying the goal of the story is that we can have a society that persecutes a certain underclass to the overall benefit of everyone, well that isn't science fiction, it's a pure lie, with no grounding in the basis of reality that science fiction so heavily relies upon. You don't have a poignant story, you have L. Ron Hubbard level fabrications.

Being approachable and likable and empathic isn't really a 'best of humanity' trait in any measurable term beyond working in the confines of humanity. Empathic connections build groups, but that just makes us a smart herd of zebra. We can empathize with things easily, we naturally try to with our fantasies of getting things and creatures that aren't like us at all to be more like us. I mean, we think it's great because then we can make friends and socialize easy, but you're still running on the terms of 'empathy is good and those in power are only there by corrupted circumstance' because it fits that narrative that the caring are good and the uncaring are bad.

There could be adequate reasons to choose the legacy of one man over another when you remove human empathy from the equation. Selective breeding and population control have been used before for desired results, if we chose to elevate some over others for physical, mental traits, we could have a stock of similar results. This isn't a sense that none of their children are singled out from exemption, a purely logical analysis that works to mingle the best with the best on grounds that are solely for a stronger human.

No prejudice beyond the strong and weak.
No exceptions beyond the fit and the unfit.
No sense of corrupted hand in play, manipulating the odds in their favor.

Maybe it's run by a machine, or an alien, never really locked into the system it made. The observer from outside discussed. I know the reflex is to go 'that can never happen' but the point of fiction is to wonder the questions of when it can. If we knew the system was not build on propaganda but on actual, scientific results, could we still call it a lie or wrong? Again, think about that, the most amount of people happy for the least amount of necessary seperation, calculated and tested for any and every variable with a mind that could process that system without flaw. No way to point and go 'it's okay to shut it down because it's flawed'. You're only alone with the choice of being aware the system has a dark secret, or to shut it down and let men go back to what they had.

No easy out with a logic loop or a 'well this is too hard for you, here's a revelation he was a bad guy all along'. The choice is just the hero's to make, no code of honor or easy way out. Just the choice.

Frankly, I'm getting the same vibe off you that I get off those people who cite pseudo-scientific studies "proving" that all black people have lower IQs than white people.

>> No. 390256
Then you're just looking for a way to shut down the actual question. I'm trying not to be upset, but a question being 'taboo' is the whole bloody point. I want to examine this point through all the fuzz of it not working because 'it's always a lie', or 'it sounds racist so I don't have to talk about it' to avoid the question beyond talking about it , just the pulp of the concept and what someone would do if confronted with that pure and cold and logically. Does a man's own emotional convictions of his or her moral rights outweigh something that while objectionable to him, and probably others, was also shown to be working?

If the 'right' thing to do, wasn't the best thing to do, would it still be right to do? Maybe that has a racist parallel to you, but that's besides the point. There isn't a 'correct' answer to find from me, you don't get more or less points by choosing one side or the other. I want reasoning. Choose yes, choose no, just explain yourself and stick to it.
>> No. 390257
there is no such thing as 'objective moral good'

if you build a system to govern humanity that aims to remove crucial parts of humanity then that can very definitely be considered a flaw

>What if the human condition in this world was not the tool that drove men to good things, but the gremlin that topples great men for the average good?

if humanity were considered 'bad' then what exactly defines the meaning of 'good'?

>topples great men for the average good

what makes their desires 'better' than other peoples'? what makes their pursuit of happiness more valid than that of the 'lesser' people?

the common setup provides a source of conflict, something vital for a story to be interesting
a story about an actual 'perfect' world would generally turn out to be boring and can easily look like propaganda

>Maybe it's run by a machine, or an alien, never really locked into the system it made.

this one line redeems your idea because now you inject a source of conflict ('optimality' from outside vs human emotion) into a setting that otherwise looks either too static or like political wank

note that this idea certainly isn't new; I'm certain that a supposedly utopian setting containing a potentially fatal flaw but it is more ambiguous whether the reader would consider it a flaw at all has been done before

by the way, doing something just because it isn't usually done does not necessarily result in a good idea or interesting product; you could write a book about a 'perfect' character with a flat personality (and no internal conflict) who succeeds at everything he does and everyone he encounters is one-dimensonally 'good' (on his side) or 'evil' (against him), but that would make for a really boring story
>> No. 390258
after that post I have to add something:

if the system wasn't operated by a nonhuman force then the 'subversion' you want doesn't actually work, because the 'greater good' is then defined by the people who control the system - humans with power using it according to their own ideals is not a 'petty twist', it's basic human nature

The thing is that any society that ensures happiness by the oppression of any one group, political, ethnic or otherwise, that society will always be in revolt, and always tumultuous. You're trying to say that if you could write a situation justifying this oppression, 1) could you do it? and 2) could you truly justify it? The answer to both of those questions is "no", because people will always revolt against oppression, especially oppression that you really have to struggle to make work. Interesting note, while on a micro level, racism in the U.S. is dumb people fighting over something meaningless, at a Macro level it's a method of societal control, not unlike the one you propose, where poor white people are arrayed against poor black people simply so that when they get bent over the table and screwed by rich white people, they don't blame the people actually responsible for the fucking.

The problem is that everything you purpose will necessarily end in eventual revolution. You're trying to take the most dangerous animal on the planet, Humans, lock them in a cage, and tell them that it's for its' for their own good. Can you not see how that plan is doomed to failure?

So I have two alarm clocks: the first has a really bright display but a softer alarm, so it plays a music CD (that I had to change the volume to low on, because the clock quickly goes to max volume) and then later plays the alarm. As a backup the second alarm clock, with a much dimmer display, plays after that to jolt me out of bed. It's basically the only reliable way to force me out of bed.

This morning I happened to get up at the first (softer) alarm, and went to lay on the couch in the living room until the second went off because my room was so hot. I do that sometimes, and when the alarm goes off I go up and turn it off.

But when it went off today my roommate, who's room is next to mine, started going "FUCK. SHIT. I WANTED TO SLEEP IN. FUCK." On the one hand I felt a bit bad for waking him up, but on the other this is nothing that I haven't done literally every single day except Saturdays for the past month. If he'd wanted to make sure he could sleep in he should have spoken to me and I would have made alternative arrangements.

Also he went on like that for almost a full minute, which was kinda funny. I did try to keep as quiet as possible after that so he could go back to sleep. But 45 minutes later he was dressed and out the door, so maybe he didn't want to sleep in...

I had drinks with Girl B about a month ago. I've been trying to get a second date ever since, but when she's not busy with her college course, I'm busy being in an adjacent country or having a fucking stupid headcold. The fact that she hasn't replied to my last couple of texts is a little alarming, but I'm trying not to panic.

What you need to understand is that I'm autistic (in the clinical sense, not the "buzzword insult" sense) so personal relationships are pretty damn difficult for me to figure out. For me to go from years of assuming I'd die alone to having two women being interested in me is kinda disorienting.

Believe me, I'd love to get some, but I'm terrified that if I move too fast, then I'll fuck everything up. That I currently have a throat that feels like sandpaper, and a nose that turns into a faucet every now and then, doesn't really help.

So my parents are moving nearby because my dad has allergies to wheat and corn dust/pollen so Iowa isn't working out too well for them. Plus my mom got a nice job in the area and has been mostly just telecommuting, flying in for a week every few months or so.

Anyway, one thing she mentioned to me was the idea of moving in with them when they get their own place, assuming it's large enough, though I would pay some rent (primarily to help them offset their mortgage payment, not because they're mean parents). However, even if this rent saved me 50% after factoring in the cost of travel (as I currently can walk to work, but doubtfully will be able to do so wherever they move to), I don't know that I'd want to.

1) That would only be $300. It's enough to pay off my massive debt faster, but not immensely so.
2) I would have to deal with the stress of driving; I HATE driving (but I hate riding more) because of the number of idiots I have to deal with.
3) I probably wouldn't have the biking opportunities that I currently have (not that I use them, but they continually seduce me.)
4) While I love my parents, we are not close by any stretch of the imagination. Plus, they're conservative Lutherans while I'm a mostly-liberal atheist, so we don't see eye to eye about many things. (I don't know if they'd care to snoop, but I'd probably encrypt my porn drive just in case.)
5) I also curse pretty frequently when playing games, and unless I do get the basement I would have to watch my language more around them.
6) If they come to rely on my rent, it will make it harder for me to get a different job and potentially move away (not that this is happening anytime soon.)

There would be some positives.
1) I'd likely have a larger room or, potentially, most of the basement to myself (if there is one) so I could do a lot more with the stuff I have.
2) I don't have to get used to a new roommate every 6ish months (or, worse, potentially wind up with a horrific roommate)
3) The guy that I rent a room from now has no fucking idea how to take care of his own house; it's not trashed, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was all kind of shit hiding in the walls and making me ill. (My mom isn't the most organized person, but with my dad's allergies the house would be kept pretty clean.)
4) Despite the disparity in our characters, whatever social net my parents would set up (and I guarantee it would be a large one) might drag me into it now and then, which may be useful.
5) Slightly decreased food bill, plus my mom makes some excellent meals.
6) Even if low, it would still be enough to help pay off most of my smaller debts within 1-2 years instead of 3-4.

Of course, I've long guarded my independence like crazy (a reason I hated being in the military, though I didn't realize it until I was already in), and living with my parents in any capacity is negative both personally and socially (not that I have anyone to possibly think less of me for doing so...)

What would you do, /sym/?
>> No. 390366
Wouldn't do it man. Once you've achieved real independence from your folks, it's really kind of a bummer to go back and live with them again. What you're learning by getting shitty roommates and managing your own finances is how to deal with other people, people whose problems you don't readily recognize, and who do not have most of their life already on track, like your parents. Additionally, their social network will mostly be composed of people like them, and not necessarily people that interest you. I find hanging out with the folks generally doesn't net me a lot of fast friends. While moving back in with your folks might drop the amount of time you're in the hole, you could just as easily do that by getting a better paying job. That could also potentially put you up in an apartment on your own if the roomies thing is just not your thing (and eventually it may not be). But having people around is expands your horizons more than just staying at your folks.

>What you're learning by getting shitty roommates and managing your own finances is how to deal with other people, people whose problems you don't readily recognize, and who do not have most of their life already on track, like your parents
The roommates I have are not shitty, but the frequency of change makes a shitty one possible. Also, I'm 28 and have both served the military and joined a fraternity, so I'm well aware of shitty roommates. :/

>Additionally, their social network will mostly be composed of people like them, and not necessarily people that interest you.
No, but those people might have sons or daughters that do, and we might get pressured into going to the same events.

>While moving back in with your folks might drop the amount of time you're in the hole, you could just as easily do that by getting a better paying job.
Too lazy/scared.

Is there a better word for this than racism?
It never really struck me as a way to say 'he's lesser or better because these are are the qualities of the Red Man' more 'these are the qualities and backstory of the Red Man in this fictional paradigm'. It's like making a distinction of Elves and Dwarves here.

This is sort of a kid's interpretation of 'The Indians' anyway, I don't think they're supposed to ever represent the intricacies of multiple cultures and groups, any more than the Pirates were.

Maybe, Racially dividing? Stereotyping? The Racism bit implies they're putting one person down over another and I didn't get the family was out to as ask all these questions to be mean.
>> No. 390371
Yeah, stereotyping.
>> No. 390372
Then I would say all that points towards eventually trying to move up, out, and on, rather than back to your folks. In my experience, your parents are a very known quantity and quality on your life, and while that may provide some security, it will no way really solve your problems. Plus, "oh hey our folks know each other" is a terrible reason to try and get along. Moving back in is equally a terrible prospect if there's the chance that you could get stuck there. I have about as good a relationship as anyone can with my folks, but I hardly ever want to see or talk to them. I know them, I've been there before, and frankly, they're a little old and they don't actually understand half the stuff I want to talk about, they just sit around listening and not really getting. It would not be as fulfilling for either of you, in my experience.
>> No. 390375
Outside of moving in with my folks, I can't see myself moving out anytime in the next two years; any increase I might get in salary is going straight to paying for debt, and I already have the cheapest living option I'm aware of here.

But other than that I agree.

Cleanse the palate, rebound with a fat person.

No, really, one night stand. Fat people are like ginger at a Sushi restaurant. They're not there for any other reason than to be the homely thing you use to reset your palate for the next fancy bit of fish and rice. You keep fish and rice swishing around, and you can drink all the water and miso soups you want, you still got a fishy, ricey, wasabi-y taste in your mouth and you're like 'well I could eat another piece but it'll have this mixed-up aftertaste and it'll suck'. So in comes George the piece of Ginger, wobbling around and he's like 'I'll take anybody, some people don't even bother with me!' and you eat it and it's not great but he's just happy to be there. And guess what? Now you don't have 'furry incest LoL ex' in your mouth making you doubt your ability to find a significant other, you got 'fat guy' and have nowhere to go but up. And you know he's fat, none of this relationship stuff sprung up on you, you took a stand to take a dive on a fat guy. YOU are in control.

And what does he get? He's a fat guy who got pussy. Crazy Redhead Scottish Pussy, Irn Bru and Shortbread flavored pussy, that's the pussy that'll motivate him to hang in there with the lower middle class tech job he'll probably get. And we need men like that to run Ameri- Scotland. Scotland needs them too, Tooth.

Are you a patriot, tooth? Are you a... whatever Scottish Patriotism means, tooth? Something about Haggis, maybe? ARE YOU THE HAGGIS, tooth? THEN GET OUT THERE AND FUCK A FAT GUY, AND BE FREE! FOR SUSHI! FOR SCOTLAND! FOR AMERICA! America will be happy too.

So my parents bought a house, but it's even further away and smaller than the one that had looked at first. After talking with my mom, they aren't that interested in having me live with them. They wouldn't mind, and I'd pay no rent, but the home is so small that there really couldn't be any place of my own outside of my small room.

However... while they will be taking possession of the house next month, they won't be moving in until late summer or fall. Considering that a room opens up here every six-ish months, I'm wondering if I can't move into their new place, live there rent-free for a few months (in exchange for upkeep on the house and, probably, paying utilities while I'm there alone), and then move back here once they're settled and a room opens back up.

I do run the risk that both new tenants here turn out to be long term, but so far that doesn't seem to be the case; the roommates I've had here have lived here to finish out their classes at university or just to gain a foothold. But, if that happens, I'll be living rent free and can take some time to watch for other openings (which may be just waiting out whoever lives here.)

Best case scenario: I have a home to myself for a few months and save about $1200 (after paying for the extra gas+utilities) in exchange for a bit of extra work and driving. I'll also get to test a lingering theory that something within the current place I'm at is affecting me negatively.

Worst case scenario: I have a home to myself for a few months, but then spend some time (I'd say a year at most) living with my folks before I find a new place back down here or a room opens up again. I save $1200 for those first few months, then $500*X months thereafter.

So long as all parties understand that it's as temporary a setup as possible, I think this would actually work out well. I still couldn't have a cat (my dad has super severe allergies; they are going to pull up all the carpet just because the current owners have a dog), and, in the best case scenario, I wouldn't get rid of any bills entirely, but it would still put me much further ahead than I would have been. Plus, coming upon summer, this room gets incredibly hot, so if they don't move until the fall I can avoid that serious discomfort.

I'll have to talk with my folks about this, but the idea really interests me...

Oh ho! My parents apparently had the same idea as I did; they don't want the house sitting empty until they move in. So now I just have to talk to the home owner to let him know I'm moving out of here at the end of April and see if he's cool with me coming back when a room opens up again.

And even if he's not, tough titty, I'm moving. I have cabin fever from living in the same place for more than a year, so I need a change of scenary. It will also be a good time to monitor my allergies and see if this place might have some sort of problem that makes them worse.

I want to get into writing fiction, but aside from the Fear of the Blank Page, I also have an issue with feeling…well, it’s like, I can think up little scenarios and vignettes in my head and it feels normal, but when I think about putting it to paper (real or virtual), I tend to feel almost embarassed of trying to do so. (It’s not quite embarassment, but it’s the closest feeling I can think of that describes this.)

Anyone got any advice for getting over that feeling (or have any idea what that feeling is to begin with)?

I already have that in mind when I try to get past the Blank Page, but for fiction writing, it's something different. I feel...well, weird when I try to come up with characters and backstories and even just barebones ideas for plots. I don't think I can really explain the feeling adequately enough.

(Funny thing is, back when I was in the Rescue Rangers fandom, I didn't have this problem vis-á-vis writing fanfiction. Nowadays, though...maybe it's just a side effect of having sat on my ass without generating ideas/creating for so long during my adulthood.)

As someone who still regularly sabotages his own life (I'm trying real hard not to do it as much), alls I can say is that avoiding it takes a shitton of willpower and discipline.

I can't recommend an "easy out" or a simple "(x)-step program" that can help you. The best advice I can give you is to watch your thoughts and try to figure out why you think certain things about yourself (e.g. "Why do I think I suck at everything?"). Other than that, I got nothin'.
>> No. 390547
The only way to unsuck is to practice. Keep at it. Anyone claiming they're always perfect is wrong, or worse, they're trying to inflate their own egos to make themselves seem more important than they are. Especially anyone trumpeting their own infallibility on the internet.

We're all prone to self-sabotage, to falling into the same habits and patterns that have previously ruined us. And those patterns are hard to get out of, hard to shake, especially if we're comfortable, if we have no real reason to change. The only way you change is by making new habits, and forcing yourself to be who you want to be.

You are going to fail. You are going to stumble. Nobody who makes it look perfect ever started out that way; it's an illusion born of an immense amount of practice, coupled with you only seeing them in action the one time. You will fuck up. You will not make it perfectly the first time. You will not even make it perfectly the second time. And after the 99999999998th time, it may still not look right to you. But it will look better than the 1st time. You may never succeed. True victory is not a finite, fixed point, not in reality. True victory is trying to the last breath. That's the problem with being human; you may not ever succeed. And that's all right. As long as you keep at it, you can really fail either.

I think I figured it out now. People don't discriminate against gay people for religious reasons. That's just an excuse. No, the REAL reason is because they're disgusted by the sex. When people see a straight couple holding hands it's like "aww, they're in love" but if they see a gay couple doing it, they wonder which one is the bottom.

Every zombie in the botnet has a list of websites to send their junkmail to, even if you destroy 99% of the bots the rest will keep sending.

Something tells me this is a very small botnet though, maybe less than 50 computers affected. You could try archiving the IPs, then informing the owners or IP providers one by one that they're victims of an attack.

I wish; as >>390586 said, the zombies are everywhere, so there's no consistent range to ban from. I have no problem banning entire countries at this point.

Not really. They still catch a lot of stuff; if our board software worked, it would also ban the IPs. But it doesn't, leading to the posting problems we had last month. Still, it slows them down a bit.

Nay. ISPs won't do shit unless it's copyright infringement or you're partnered with law enforcement. And law enforcement is busy spying on every single American going after bigger fish than someone spamming virus links on a 4chan knock off.

If Anonex was actually around we could put in something that might stop it for a bit without resorting to CAPTCHA. But, that's not going to happen, so we have to hope we can ban the nodes faster than new ones are created, which is unlikely.

In my defence, and I admit it's a shitty defence, I was dealing with all kinds of shit financially speaking, thanks to my former employers being shitty assholes who kept fucking with me by giving me all kinds of crap.

We had talked about this over the phone once before, and I laughed it off by calling myself a cheapskate. I figured that was the end of it, but if I knew how to make women happy, I wouldn't be giving you guys a blow-by-blow account of this crap.

I've texted an apology, promising to get the first round in next time, but I didn't go as far as to suggest a place to meet or anything (I know jack shit about decent bars in my area - I once suggested a decent pub, but she admitted she's snobby about those kinds of places).

>Implying one man could really be the tipping point.

Hitler was just a vessel for a whole host of nasty memes that had been going around at the time. After the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was stretched to the point of desperation, and the "otherness" of Jews (partially enforced by themselves, actually, in their insularity) combined with that desperation, the need for a scape goat, and the general xenophobia of people of the time meant that SOMEONE was going to go in that direction. The Thule Society predated Hitler, and someone else would have become the agent of their ideals. The German government of the time had patently ridiculous, easily abused rules, and someone else would have discovered the loopholes that Hilter did if he didn't.

This is one reason I have some small measure of distaste for the tendency to treat Hitler as a SPECIAL kind of evil. He wasn't. Any of us might be capable of his level of heinous monstrousness under the right conditions. To treat him as somehow special, as though assassinating him would actually cure the sickness that infected Germany and manifested in his administration, is to give him far greater credit than he deserves. If it hadn't been Hitler, it would have been someone else.

This is why it's so important to fight toxic memes when we see them in our own societies. They are self-sustaining, and when they find the right host, they can manifest in the most awful of ways. You can't just assassinate a meme. You have to find ways of replacing it with less toxic memes.

Probably a freshman engineering student.

Jokes aside, I don't know how easy it is for all the majors to find work, but I can say that there are jobs out there even for "useless" degrees. I see a number of job postings that request the applicant have a degree in English or Communications or something. The only problem with these jobs is that they all seem to require 3-5 years of work experience in the field. I apply to the jobs anyway.

Of course, there are also a number of positions that seem to just ask that the applicant have a BA/BS of any kind or even just an Associate's.

Can't say much for the luck. I'm a recent-ish grad (Will be a full year this May). I got a call-back for an interview in my field shortly after I graduated, but that was a position that was offered directly to students at my school.

I've taken a few breaks in applying to jobs (I either got busy or depressed) so I can't say that I've been constantly sending applications in. I've gotten a number of callbacks/interviews for jobs that I didn't particularly want (from things like head cashier to selling insurance) but not too many callbacks from jobs in my field.

Right now I'm back to applying to random jobs just to put a little extra cash into my pockets. I may be going to grad school at a later date, though, because I'd like to go all the way and possibly become a college professor at some point.

That meme is kind of annoying, although I kind of bought into it a little as a lot of people at my college would leave STEM fields for business degrees. Which, to me, is the only degree truly deserving of contempt, even though I'm sure it's respectable on some level. Being able to do Science is as respectable as being able to Write, being able to philosophize, being able to act, the only problem is the perceived wage gap, which I believe I saw an Economist article on recently that solidly debunked that notion. Turns out having a degree speaks more to your economic level than what any one subject that degree is in, same for the other levels of degree. Which is annoying, because I did totally enter school with the perception that certain degrees were worth more than others. My distaste for Business Degrees is more rooted in the conceptualization of the role. There's something a little disgusting to me to only being good at "creating business", as while that is certainly a creative construct, I perceive a lot of unnecessary business that is simply designed to grind people for money, which I find distasteful on some level. It's not wrong to want to succeed, but for god sakes', have a product or service that is worthwhile. The seeming "tragedy" of more social oriented degrees was their perceived lack of demand, which now appears to be a falsehood.

I'd actually think that would probably come from a parent who mistook college for a straight line to a better job, and did not themselves perceive of how college can actually be used as a platform to create your own job, or to find a career in an industry sector that you previously didn't know existed. That's kind of the bigger issue; people don't really understand the demand of what they want to do until they've worked at if for a while.

College is only useful for one thing in regards to getting a job, and that one thing is NETWORKING. Your actual degree or grade point average is nigh-meaningless.

In this day and age, 95% of the time you get a job, it's because you "know somebody". Attending college and hanging out with people who already have jobs in your chosen field, like upperclassmen and professors, is a surefire way to make sure you "know somebody" there. It raises your chances of getting hired from basically zero to more-than-zero. People will always choose the known evil over the unknown evil, so they will hire someone they know even when it's a meaningless entry-level position, over someone better qualified that they don't know.

If you graduate college with perfect marks but no social circle, I'm sorry: you failed. Good luck getting a job anywhere, much less where you wanted to be. If you did just enough to be considered menially competent, yet have a network of contacts, you'll be marching up your career path in no time flat. That is why frat boys become managers while bookworms flip burgers; it ain't fuckin' fair, but this world was built by, for, and of extroverts. Either pretend to be one, or die poor and alone. Your choice.

(As someone who's last job was as an insurance sales agent, I can attest to their "hire absolutely everyone and see who sticks" approach. Also, I can back up my previous "known evil" assertion by adding that anybody who quit was told they were "welcome to return" at any time, and it was TRUE. They would rehire someone who had proven virtually nothing other than their ability to fail before hiring someone new who might succeed; I literally saw it happen several times during my 8-month employment there.)

That extrovert shit makes me more depressed than anything. College has lways been hard, but what's worse is how I keep fucking up my attempts to be social, and trying to be open ends up with me panicking and running off or I sy something wrong and I can't stay around. My permanent social state is burning bridges, and it only feeds how muc I don't like myself. My therapist keeps going on about being an introvert can work out , but unless I can just get networked into something simple I can just hide away in I don't see that happening.
>> No. 390785
>being an extrovert and growing a social network is the only way most colleges work out

Except if that were true, then you're not thinking through your original assertion. If that were completely true in any regard, you wouldn't go to college, you'd just join a frat. It may be difficult to find work once you get outside of college, but you're going to be S.O.L. at most college if you're relying on social networks anyway; Professors are not necessarily going to know people in industry, and while they can write letters of recommendation, they probably do that for a lot of people every year. You might try liasoning with your schools' job board to see if things really pan out, but mostly I'd stop worrying so much that ever social interaction you have has a "pass/fail" waiting to be stamped on it. That anxiety is probably short changing you more than simply being comfortable being alone, and being less uncomfotable when around people. The whole binary option of introvert/extrovert is false anyway. Nobody ever gets shit done if they're not alone, and nobody ever gets their shit out to other people unless they meet other people. It's a balance, not an either/or.
>> No. 390805
>Which, to me, is the only degree truly deserving of contempt, even though I'm sure it's respectable on some level.
Honestly, I think the best thing they could do for those "useless degrees" would be to do away with the Business Degree entirely, and reorient those classes toward those "useless ones." Those degrees are generally the ones that are in least danger of ever being fully automated away, and it is very possible, maybe even more possible than ever before, to make money at them--it's just that the people who learn those skills are never taught vital networking and self-promotion skills that are important to success.

So do away with Business Degrees, and teach business classes to the art majors, english majors, etc. Set them up with networking opportunities as part of it, too. Every art student who graduates from your college should have sold something on Etsy or eBay or something like that by the time they graduate. Budding writers should be able to have something, even if it's terrible, up on Lulu or the Amazon self-publishing platform. Teach people how to set up partnerships with warehouses and shipping people to sell merchandise, or how to arrange to have things they make mass produced.

This is a prime time for colleges to start pumping out self-employed artists, writers, composers, whatever, who don't have to wait until they get hired to start making money off their degrees, and who have future-proof careers.

Boy I've been away for a while.

Well I'm dating someone new and its absolutely fucking cray how much we actually like being near each other. To be honest this is probably the most intimate relationship I've had with another person. I'm taking her to see grand buhdapest hotel on friday.

School wise, I'm scheduled to graduate next quarter, which is exciting. But I'm sweating bullets because the last class I took pretty much kicked my ass, I passed and I learned quite a bit but my gpa will certainly take a hit. I'm gonna have to work on the other parts of my schoolwork.

If taking care of her would be a hardship, look in the larger area to see if there are any rescues that would be able to take her. That sounds like a lot to deal with for something you really didn't choose to, but if she's given to a shelter she'll likely be killed, so good on you for taking her on.

Okay, that latest CP bot post is way over the line. I think I'm just going to keep SYM open in a tab and F5 it periodically. I'm safe in here!

I'm continually amazed that the franchise still exists. It's baffling that at some point in my life I was genuinely excited to hug a man dressed as a giant rat. On the flipside, the arcade had that kickass Jurassic Park game with the rumbling seats. My brother and I sunk so many tokens into that thing. Only beat it once. Worth it.

also realtalk how many of you would attend a Bara Cafe--which is to say, a Maid Cafe but with very large muscular men as the servers
>> No. 390907
It was strange chain of events then I was discussing my writing with someone and the point that I get very emotional when sometimes writing for that character. Well I figured out what they were even though it would make little sense to talk about them since most would say I was being stupid even though that stuff feels very real when it throws me into a depression. Though the short of it is again reevaluating self and removing all concepts save for the concept of who I see myself as. Still only a few would likely understand.

Maid Cafes in general sound like a silly gimmick for overpriced coffee. And bara? Well, my coffee shop in Arkansas is run by a Duck Dynasty stunt-double, so it's not really a stretch.

I think I might not just because it'd likely still be super expensive like I've heard maid cafes are. A well furnished place can be nice, and I don't mind the staff being fancily dressed, but I go to a restaurant for food, so when I go that's what I want to pay for. Also, it'd likely be in Japan, where I currently am not. Really, though, I don't think I like the idea of having maids, just because if anything I've always been uncomfortable with how hesitant my own family is to let me take care of myself in the name of being polite and hospitable. Same thing with guys would be similarly uncomfortable, but at least I wouldn't risk looking like I'm using them as pseudo-girlfriends, and I could maybe cheer them on for being cool if they show off their muscles like pic related.

Eh, I personally don't think fixing the color palette is worth the loss of shading on the gloves and to a lesser extent the highlights on the skin. Not sure why you got rid of the shininess in her hair either, you even still had that color. Plus the inside of her knee seems to benefit form a harder shadow. Good on ya for trying, though.

Well, Girl B sent me a text saying she's let me know when she was free... and that was about a week ago. I think she's still pissed that I didn't pay for drinks last time, even though I apologised/explained at least twice for that.

Girl A liked a post I made on her facebook page recently; doesn't sound like much, but it's a damn sight more than Girl B has done recently.

On top of that, it's half 1 in the morning and I'm making a match.com profile, purely on the basis that my little brother's housemate said it would be a good idea (I considered plentyoffish, but I remembered that it gave me nothing but heartaches and headaches).

It's weird to think that one day there might be another sitcom that continues in the grand tradition of Happy Days by giving a highly stereotypical view of family life two decades ago, thereby turning my formative years into a big joke. I'm not saying that in anger, it's just really fucking weird. Especially since there were already shows during the 00s and 10s that made "topical" humor, so it'll be like sitting through all those jokes all over again.
