1 Name: !ESpeoN/nPA : 1993-09-6769 21:57

Somebody had to restart this thread. I hope it's okay if I do it.

You aren't mad at me, are you?

2 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6769 22:46

>>1
Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

>>3
What should I do during free time at work today?

3 Name: !ESpeoN/nPA : 1993-09-6769 23:29

>>2
Set your coworkers' keyboards to stunDvorak.

>>4
How can I change my sleep schedule? I can't simply go and sleep until it's waaay past 3 a.m.

Why did !ESpeoN/nPA switch back to linking post numbers?

5 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 00:06

>>4 I don't care.

>>6 What would you like to try before you die?

6 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 00:49

>>5
Ketamine.

>>7
What was your introduction to drug

7 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 01:08

>>6
Drug? Never heard of him.

>>8
How long have you been a hikikomori?

8 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 01:09

>>6 Ketamine is great, you're in for a treat! I was pretty much straightedge till I was 19 then I tried nutmeg in first year, then in the summer between first and second years of university I tried cocaine then marijuana. In 3rd year I took lots of ecstasy, mephedrone, ketamine, methylone and 2c-i. I read up about the effects and stuff before I tried them all though, it wasn't just trying them because they were offered. Best choice I have ever made in life, I really found myself and turned my life around for the better. Better living through chemicals indeed.

>>8 What is your biggest regret in life?

9 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 04:01

>>7
I've never been a true hikki, but I have been a shut-in internet addict on and off for the past 7 years or so.

>>8
I vaguely feel like I answered this in a previous thread, but if so I have a different answer this time. I don't have any big regrets, but I do wish I had been more focused in high school and college. I always did enough to get an A, but didn't take the opportunity to push myself and really learn everything I could. Now it's much harder to learn what with being busy at work and lacking a learning environment, and I realize how easy it would have been back then for me to push myself just a little to learn a lot.

This isn't a big regret though, in some ways it's a lot easier living as an average guy with average knowledge. Sometimes I just need to admit that I'd rather waste my life on the internet than achieve greatness.

>>9
What is the purpose of meaning?

Thanks.

>>11
What is your biggest criticism with Biblical Jesus?

12 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 16:08

>>11
I haven't one. The Jesus of the bible is an amazing person with a lot of good things to say. The problem I have is with his soi-disant followers, who twist his words (and the rest of the bible) to suit their own ends. Of course, this also holds true for most of the Abrahamic religions. The Darqawa Sufi are intersting, but again, once political posturing kicks in, the whole thing goes down the drain.

>>13
i am too verbose please help

13 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 16:39

>>12 me too. Wear your wit like a pocket watch and only bring it out to shine when the time is right. Things are easier if people have lower expectations of you, but then you can dazzle them now and then and leave them thinking "hmm there's more to that guy than meets the eye"

>>14 How do you eat your creme egg?

14 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 17:36

>>13
First, I take my creme egg and place it on a ritual granite stone slab which I keep in my garage especially for this purpose. I then stroke it gently on the side, before flaying it 25 times with a sprig of fresh parsley. Next, I hit it with a sledgehammer. Over the pulverised remains, I then drip a little soy sauce and manuka honey. I scrape what's left off the granite slab and feed it to my dog.

Haha, no, I'm only kidding; I just slam it into my mouth whole, chew and swallow.

>>15
What is your favourite obscure unicode character? (Hint: see here)

15 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 18:12

>>17 Did you know 17 is my favourite number, and that I was number 17 when I appeared on a children's TV show when I was younger?

17 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 18:53

I do now.

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

>>19
What, if any, posters do you have on your wall?

19 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 20:11

>>18 My walls are covered floor to ceiling in posters and pictures of favourite bands, art and graphic design stuff, other cool stuff, and a big confederate flag hung upside down because I'm into vexillology and get a boner for saltires, but I don't agree with what the flag stands for. My ceiling is covered in pictures my friends and fans have drawn for me.

>>20 What colour is your hair?

20 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 23:50

>>19
Boring light brown / dark blond.

>>21
Clearly snowmen are better than religious symbols. Why do you suppose that >>15san said that✡ is better than ☃?

21 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 23:51

>>19
Dark blonde, though I've had a grey patch since I was a teenager (not sure why--if anyone knows, please tell me).

>>21
What did you get last Christmas?

22 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6770 23:57

>>24
What did you think of my joke?

24 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6771 01:02

>>23 It was pretty good, it took me a second for the penny to drop, but I appreciated it.

>>25 Have you ever enjoyed any TV soaps?

25 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6771 07:23

>>24
Does House count? I kinda liked it at first, when it was really trendy.

>>26
How do you deal with internet drama?

26 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6771 07:37

>>25
I ignore it and sometimes laugh about it. On the rare occasion somebody tries to start drama with me personally, I brush it off with a joke and ignore any further attempts.

>>27
Where were you at this moment one year ago?

27 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6771 14:47

>>26 I was in my old flat, stressing about my honours project and dissertation. According to iTunes I was getting into the Guana Batz and getting into the groove with my ambient projects.

>>28 Would you rather be a cowboy or a robot?

28 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6771 15:44

>>27
Robot, definitely.

>>29
What is the most interesting/unusual object you own?

29 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6772 07:37

Hmm, I can think of a few candidates so it's hard to choose. I think I'll say an old change counter machine my grandpa gave me. It's a little red handheld machine with buttons you can click to increase pennies, nickles, dimes and quarters to count up change. It feels really nice in the palm of your hand.

30 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6772 07:48

>>31
What's in your trash can right now?

31 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6772 11:11

Trash, >>30. If you were asking for specific details, it's mainly empty cans, empty food packages, and such.

>>32, what's it feel like, being a power of two?

32 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6772 15:21

>>31
Fine enough.

>>32
What have you done today?

33 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6772 15:55

I went hiking and worked on my COBOL interpreter.

34 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6772 16:10

>>35
What do you wish you had done today?

35 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6772 17:25

>>34
Stayed home from school and slept. But alas, I have papers to turn in.

36 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6773 01:44

>>37
why didn't I get asked a question?

37 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6773 02:19

>>38
Why didn't I answer >>37's question?

38 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6773 02:25

>>37 Because you're a big meanie!

>>39 Who is your favourite wrestler?

39 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6773 15:27

>>38
I'm going to go with Arawat Sabejew, purely because he has a silly name.

>>40
To what degree do you feel that you are in control of your life?

40 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6773 18:17

>>39
No control whatsover

>>41

Have you ever been to counselling or therapy or that sort of thing? How did it go?

42 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6774 01:11

>>41
Yes, and I'm still alive, so it worked.

>>43
What kind of music do you find mildly uplifting?

43 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6774 01:48

>>42
Perfume. It is literally impossible* to feel depressed while listening to J-pop.

*not really

>>44
What were you doing five minutes ago?

44 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6774 02:28

>>45
What's your favorite bagel flavor?

45 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6774 03:20

>>44 Bacon, for the irony. Actually I've never had a bagel before?

>>46 What's your poison?

46 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6774 13:40

>>45
Thujone.

>>47
Fire, water, earth, or air?

47 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6774 13:59

>>46
Water. Gotta go with the flow.

>>48
Would you rather go without sex or without music the rest of your life?

48 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6774 14:28

>>47
Sex, it's easier than it looks.

>>49
u ot m8?

49 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6774 14:29

>>47 I've already decided that if I ever went deaf or my willy got cut off, I'd probably just kill myself.

>>49 What are your thoughts on this song? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySPv9X-_QyI

50 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6774 14:32

>>47
I'm going fine without sex so far, so I pick that. Without music I probably would have killed myself and/or others by now.

>>49
What is your most recent accomplishment?

51 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6774 15:42

>>48
Ehh?

>>49
Vulgar and distasteful. Very silly.

>>50
I cleared PoFV's extra stage with Komachi.

>>52
How the fuck do I do this spellcard?

52 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6775 01:13

>>51
Use Tokiko.

>>53
What are things that piss you off?

53 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6775 01:45

>>52 My flatmate leaving my telly and PS3 on standby, dumb bitches, the police, a couple of posters here, uncultured meatheads, the word "bro", katy perry, animal abusers, people who try to act all mature and look down their collective nose at me when I'm having some fun.

>>54 Analog clocks or digital clocks?

54 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6775 08:36

>>53
Analogue clocks look better but digital clocks are more reliable. Best to have some of both.

>>55
What is your favourite type of cake?

55 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6775 10:55

>>54
Victoria sponge. It is everything a cake should be, but no more.

>>56
What is the most exciting thing you have ever cooked?

56 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6775 11:24

>>55
Coincidentally, it was victoria sponge, with a filling of marmalade made out of pomelo. Not a great success, but interesting to say the least.

>>57
Have you ever tried pomegranate? Did you like it?

57 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6775 15:15

>>56 I drank some juice that contained pomegranate, and I didn't like it. Does that count?

>>58 How difficult was it to open your first bottle of Ramune?

58 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6775 21:59

>>57
Not terribly difficult, but I ended up spilling about a tenth of it because I'd shaken it too much getting it indoors.

>>59
Do you prefer your Chinese text written horizontally or vertically?

59 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6775 22:22

>>58 Vertically, without a doubt.

>>60 Blonde, brunettes or redheads? Or "crazy" unnatural colours? I'm talking about your taste in sexual partners.

60 Name: Sorénanté-Hait Roguet : 1993-09-6775 22:40

>>59
Ultramarine, no contest. But only if the carpet matches the drapes.

>>61
What's your favourite Japanese adult PC game?

61 Name: [ƒgƒLŽq] : 1993-09-6776 00:37

>>60
YMK, followed by Saya no Uta. YMK has lovable characters and SnU is the thinking man's porn.

>>62
Thoughts on Linux 3.3?

62 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6776 04:11

>>61
My computer freezes when I try to boot up with it! Fuck you!

>>63
What do you think about the fire Emblem series?

63 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6776 04:21

>>62
I love the music. Never played them, though.

>>64
How do you feel about the comparison between video game and "real" music?

64 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6776 08:51

>>63
Some video games have very good music, much better than some "real" music. I believe it's silly to think less of a piece of music just because of where it comes from.

>>65
How do you deal with extroverts?

65 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6776 09:09

>>64
If I like them enough, I act just extroverted enough to keep getting along with them. Otherwise, I just stay away. Fortunately, I like most people.

>>66
What's your favorite TED talk?

66 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6776 15:50

>>65
That's a tough one. I like quite mundane ones:
http://www.ted.com/talks/eli_pariser_beware_online_filter_bubbles.html
And recently:
http://www.ted.com/talks/susan_cain_the_power_of_introverts.html
One of those, I suppose.

>>67
What's it like in the universe where people can't post in the right threads?

67 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6776 17:07

>>66, ( E-E) I'm a big fat butt, I'm a big fat butt, I'm a big fat butt.

>>68, what's it like in the universe where we resisted the temptation to cross the streams?

68 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6776 17:57

>>67
I wouldn't know. This isn't a thread capable of sending people to alternate universes, you know.

>>69
What is your favourite piece of art?

69 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6776 18:51

>>68 Myself.

>>70 when was last time you took public transport?

70 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6776 20:25

>>71
What is your opinion on homeopathy?

71 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6776 20:59

>>70
I hold the idea of water memory in similarly high regard as I do the great beard in the sky who wants us to kill all the gays and not covet our neighbors' asses.

>>72
When, if at all, will we get a centrally controlled world government, and where will its capital be?

72 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6776 21:15

>>71
I don't think we ever will, but it'd be located in Rome, obviously.

>>73
PHP or Perl?

73 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6776 21:30

>>72
PHP for brevity, and Perl for when you have important stuff to do.

>>74
MATLAB or Mathematica?

74 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6777 00:41

>>73
I never went deep enough into the math world to ever use MATLAB, but I did find Mathematica quite helpful for number theory. Its graphing system seemed a little convoluted and hard to control, like it would be a pain in the ass to graph something complicated just the way you want it. Maybe MATLAB is better at that. I only used it for a couple days so I might have just been missing something.

>>75
Vim or emacs?

75 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6777 02:19

>>74
Unanswerable. You cannot compare the two as vim is a superior text editor and emacs is a mediocre OS.

>>76
Why did I fall over backward and how can I prevent it in the future?

76 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6777 03:52

>>75

Perhaps your shoes are worn in the heel. You might consider replacing them.

>>77

Why can't I, hold all these limes?

77 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6777 08:20

>>76
Because you rack disciprine.

>>78
What's the worst horror you've ever subjected yourself to?

78 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6777 08:49

>>77
"Amnesia: The Dark Descent". God damn terrifying.

>>79
Have you ever attempted to create a game? How did it go?

79 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6777 14:32

>>78
I made a few embarrassingly bad flash games when I was a preteen. More recently, in college I made a little cube dodging game in java for Graphics class. I only spent a couple days on it so there's not much to it.
Check it out:

>>80
What's your high score in my game?

80 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6777 16:54

>>79 hey pretty neat! I got 401, though I know I can do better... the music in the folder is cool too but it doesn't play during the game

>>81 Can you beat my score? Post a link to a screencap if you do

81 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6778 20:34

>>80
No, I cannot. It appears my danmaku skills have deserted me; the highest I got was 159.

>>82
Do I talk about Touhou too much?

82 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6778 21:02

>>81 oh what I got 255 on my first go and I've never even played a touhou game

Hey >>83, >>81 must really suck, huh?

83 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6778 22:31

>>82
Well, once the score gets around 150-200, the cubes start falling so quickly that I think it's more about luck than skill. I certainly don't have a fast enough reaction time to do any real dodging once it gets around 250. My high score is 529 but that's only because I tested it so much while making it.

(By the way, not sure why the music doesn't work on other machines - that's my fault for never testing it on a computer other than my own.)

>>81
You're not the only Touhou fan on here, so I don't think it's a bad thing. I personally have never played a Touhou game but I don't mind all the Touhou posts here, I just skip over them if I don't know what they're talking about.

>>84
What's the appeal of Touhou?

84 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6778 22:47

>>83
The hats.

>>85, have you ever been in an emergency in which emergency mittens were needed?

85 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6779 00:29

>>84
I vaguely recall that when the button first came out, it was a response to terrible anti-mitten propaganda on IRC. The emergency was that mittens may disappear from DQN forever, so I did my part, releasing the emergency mittens daily to help Fight the Power!

>>86
Do you remember that anti-mittens IRC conversation? I can't seem to find it after a couple minutes of googling.

86 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6779 03:50

>>85
Nope!

>>87
You get a kitten tomorrow. You name it?

87 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6779 04:34

>>86
Soul Drinker.

>>88
What kind of kitten should I get?

>>91
About how many operating systems have you used in your life? (Let's say a week or more of usage, trying out a live CD just one time doesn't count.)

91 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6779 08:36

>>90
Windows: 5: 98, NT, XP, Vista, Win7
Mac: about 3: OS 8, OS 9, OS X (and some later versions I cannot be assed to recall)
Linux: 5: Slackware, Debian, Mandrake, Arch, Ubuntu
Unix: 2: FreeBSD, Haiku

So, 15.

>>92
What are you most favorite/hated operating systems?

92 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6779 08:56

I hate using Macs. I don't care about most GNU distros as long as things are in their proper places, and I absolutely love using Slackware.

What is the best free (as in free beer) General MIDI soundfont?

95 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6779 14:59

>>94
It's not technically a soundfont, but GXSCC is my favorite way to play MIDI files. Chiptuney goodness. There's even a secret OPL mode, can you find it? (Hint - click around)

>>96
What's your favorite midi file?

96 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6779 17:29

>>95 hmm maybe dshos5_4.mid? there are so many to choose from, I don't really play the "favorite" game.

>>94 there is no best, but SGM, Crisis GM, and GeneralUser GS are pretty good I'd say, if you just want the whole range of instruments. these days, soundfonts are passé when you can use individual VSTs for each instrument and they will sound better and use less CPU.

What is your opinion on communism?

105 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6782 13:20

>>104 It reduces the incentive to produce goods, and that leads to farms that don't always make enough food for others.

I use mine for backup purposes. And I don't know of any Linux that specifically benefits from being run live of a USB drive, but you could try dyne:bolic just for kicks (you probably won't use it long term.)

What are your thoughts on the music of today?

112 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6783 12:49

>>111 I don't care much for what's in the pop charts, but thanks to the Internet there is a space for all sorts of interesting things that I couldn't have ever heard maybe 15 years ago. I love everything from country to noise, hip hop to britpop, j-pop to prog rock, and most things inbetween. I don't waste time on things I don't like, so I'm overall pretty happy.

>>113 When was the last time you paid for music?

>>114
What is the music that you downloaded most recently?

114 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6783 13:35

>>113
The Keiko Matsui discography. She is a breathtaking pianist who combines hauntingly beautiful melodies with the far-off sounds of an African coastline in perpetual sunset. If you enjoy Hiromi Uehara, you'll love the slower, less jazzy atmospheres Keiko creates with the mysterious wanderings of her rhythmic fingers.

>>115
Who is your favorite pianist?

115 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6783 15:38

I must confess I don't know that many pianists despite being one myself. I do enjoy Vladimir Horowitz very much though, especially his recordings of Scriabin.

What instrument(s) do you play?

116 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6783 16:08

>>115 Guitar, bass, drums, mandolin, bouzouki, tin whistles, melodica, stylophone, keyboards, harmonica, chanter, accordion, melodeon, bodhran, ukulele, jew's harp, recorder, and i've got a bunch of percussive stuff like tambourines and maracas and stuff, and i'm getting into circuit bending as well. I feel like I'm missing something(s)

119 Name: 118 : 1993-09-6783 20:40

Derp. Let's try that again. Also, >>117, that's a huge music folder? Really? I have three music folders on as many hard drives (though due to messy backup policies there is some significant file duplication and overlap I have not yet bothered to fix), and just one of them is seven times as big as that.

What is your general opinion of Minecraft?

122 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6784 15:31

>>121
For some time I completely lost interest; the vanilla game just felt too aimless and easy, and multiplayer is buggy and it's hard to find good servers. But then I found Vech's super hostile maps and the like, and now minecraft is fun again. I must confess I enjoy watching Zisteau's Let's Plays of these even more than playing myself, just because he has the time and patience to really conquer the map and build amazing structures, and he edits his videos pretty well to keep it interesting.

>>123
What's your opinion of Let's Plays?

123 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6784 16:55

>>122
Love 'em, whenever I have the time. I prefer text + screenshot Let's Play over the apparently more popular video format, simply because they can be, and on average often are, so much funnier. Unlike with a gameplay video, authors are not constrained by the timing of on-screen events on the amount of (snarky or otherwise) commentary they can deliver. Also, I have a soft spot for Let's Players who can use SA emoticons to great comedic effect (such as Squint in his LP of 7.62mm and DeceasedCrab in his take on War With the Evil Power Master).

>>124
Are there any forced-registration online forums you know whose atmosphere is not ruined by popularity circle jerks? If so, where can they be found?

124 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6784 19:56

The forums for the game Kingdom of Loathing are quite nice. A very good community, which is not a surprise considering that they are all KoL players.

Under what circumstances would murder or suicide (not "a murder-suicide" nor a suicide bombing or anything like that) be acceptable?

125 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6784 20:03

No, sorry. But at the same time I don't look to "regular forums" for that very reason. I am always using anonymous textboard channels and anonymous imageboard channels for this very reason.

126 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6784 20:58

>>124
I don't think you can really draw a line between "acceptable" and "unacceptable" just like that. With law, you have things like diminished responsibility or self defence - it isn't excusing the crime, it's just showing that it wasn't cold blooded murder.

Question evasion aside, I think just the obvious stuff; if everyone's obviously going to be a lot better off with someone dead, then I suppose it's "acceptable" to kill them/for them to commit suicide.

>>125
That isn't a question.

>>127
How many chemical elements can you name off the top of your head?

127 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6784 21:52

There's antimony, arsenic, aluminum, selenium
And hydrogen and oxygen and nitrogen and rhenium
And nickel, neodymium, neptunium, germanium
And iron, americium, ruthenium, uranium
Europium, zirconium, lutetium, vanadium
And lanthanum and osmium and astatine and radium
And gold and protactinium and indium and gallium
And iodine and thorium and thulium and thallium...

etc. I have the song memorized, so however many elements were known to songwriters in the 1950s.

>>128
What is your favorite parody song?

128 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6784 22:22

>>127
Right now, it's "Weird Al" Yankovic's Stop Forwarding That Crap To Me. The style of the song (overly dramatic slow ballad with a background choir) beautifully clashes with the banality of its subject matter, and once the novelty of the lyrics has worn off it is still pleasant to listen to as music in its own right. It then proceeds to get extra brownie points for mentioning both BCC and Snopes.com, and the clever use of kinetic typography that makes up its music video. While I personally am grateful to not know anyone who engages in endless forwarding of the sort of crap mentioned in the song, I have plenty of long-suffering friends who do.

>>129
What comedy musicians do you know that produce quality songs with Weird Al's level of consistency?

129 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6784 22:39

>>127
Do remixes count? If so, it's ttp://youtu.be/TkDrmBkVqAU I find this absolutely stunning.

Otherwise, it's Weird Al's White & Nerdy. Recently my boss decided to play music on his laptop to keep everyone up, but soon his playlist degraded into pop and rap. So, while he was away I planted this song in his Eminem playlist which soon entertained everybody.

>>129
What is your audio system?

Oh my, it's like we share a special bond!
I don't even know whom to name! Tenacious D are inactive, right? Avenue Q is a musical... There was a presumably German band a few years ago, but they would be far behind THE Al.

Anyway, >>131, what is your audio system? What comedy musicians do you know?

131 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6788 06:51

>>130
I use a pair of Rokit KRK 5s. I liked a bunch of comedy musicians when I was younger but now all I can remember are Monty Python, Rappy McRapperson and Patrick Shaughnessy - Funeral Songs of Happy Cloudland. The last two are so horribly bad they're funny.

>>132
What do you think about the title song "Cloudland" from that last album?

132 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6792 18:35

>>131
Took forever to find a recording of it (eventually found this). It was... not awfully happy and had little to do with clouds. Quite nice nonetheless.

>>138
Have you ever experienced a life-changing moment?

138 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6792 23:43

>>137
I think every moment is life-changing to some degree. It's impossible to say what moment has had the greatest net effect on my life's path, so I'll just pick the first one that comes to mind.

My life changed when I introduced to my first computer at the age of 4. It was love at first sight. I continued to be fascinated by those glowing screens throughout my childhood and adolescence. Computers no longer inspire such a sense of wonder and mystery, but now I'm addicted for life. Even without internet access, I can easily spend hours (unproductively) on the machine, neglecting food, sleep and human companionship.

>>139
Do you think robots can ever be a substitute for real human empathy?

139 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6793 01:01

>>138
Perhaps. A few months ago I became interested in a team called Meka Robotics and their robot is so cute and moves so smoothly that I just want to hug it. I really hope this article turns out to be more than pop science speculation, I would love a plastic pal. Though reading John McCarthy's The Robot and the Baby has made me question whether such relationships are a good idea after all.

>>140
What are you most looking forward to about THE FUTURE?

140 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6793 02:29

>>139
Romantically, for the ability to store, copy and enhance our minds with technology.
Cynically, for major world powers to collapse due to economic and environmental issues. (If this happens it will be terrible to experience but interesting to watch.)
Realistically, for Charlie Nishinaka to release volume 12 of "Cheers!" That shit is fucking hot.

>>141
Who's your favorite H-mangaka? (If you don't like H-manga, don't answer, or post about 3d porn or whatever gets you off.)

>>143
What is your deepest shame or strongest regret?

143 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6793 12:07

>>142
My deepest regret is that I'm 22 and still not in college, despite having taught myself a good many things I could major in. Half the problem is that I don't want to spend time and money on courses I will learn on my own anyway, the other half is that I'm just lazy. Right now, I could be a mathematics, physics or engineering major easily, but all I do is work and play guitar in a post-rock band. Pathetic, no?

>>156
I'm rather enamoured at the moment with a beautiful woman five years older than me who lives in Japan. Though the language gap is being crossed rather slowly we have conversed about a number of things and I have come to respect her very much. Also she is unhappily married and sexually under-stimulated, which only furthers my drive to satisfy her as much as I can.

Do you talk to yourself much? If so, what do you talk about?

162 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6794 15:40

>>161
Yes. Sometimes it will be on spur-of-the-moment philosophical implications of something. Other times I pretend I am explaining a concept to someone. Often while browsing this board I'll take something I found really funny and narrate a story for it/propound humorously upon its ramifications. In terms of non-verbal utterances I often hum or make drum noises akin to those of Venetian Snares or Aphex Twin.

In contrast I am very quiet around others.

I don't get out much.

About a 3. I have electricity and a nice, warm bed, but I'm also terribly miserable and unsuccessful.

Why did >>160 post?

169 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6795 14:23

I posted >>160 because I messed up the numbering in post >>159.

What is the most enjoyable thing you've done today?

What is your favourite field of mathematics?

>The reddish brown substance on the floor is a combination of feces and blood. Origin of these materials is unknown. The enclosure must be cleaned on a bi-weekly basis.

That bit grossed me out out a tad.

>>174
Lets be shallow! What is your favorite materiel possession?

174 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6795 20:09

>>173
I don't really have any "materiel" possessions, unless my guitars could possibly be used as dangerous weapons. My favorite "material" possessions however would be the books which threaten to fill my entire room.

>>175
What makes you the same or different from everyone else?

175 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6795 21:11

>>174
Physically, I'm similar to a lot of people because I am white, tall, and I have dark hair. I'm different because I always have dark circles under my eyes and awful eyesight. I also have a relatively rare autoimmune disorder.

Socially, I'm different because I would prefer not to be social, at least, not offline.

Mentally, I'm different due to what I believe to be a combination of Asperger's and some form of Schizophrenia. I also believe that I'm more intelligent than most people.

Spiritually, I think that I'm different from most because I feel that I have reached some level of enlightenment. Most people that I know are agnostic, atheistic anti-Christians. I'm not an anti-Christian and I'm not an atheist.

I'm not sure how else I should define myself. It's a tricky topic. A close friend would be much better at it, I think. I don't view the world in terms of "me vs them" and I hardly leave my room.

Maybe vanilla.

>>184
Why does vanilla get such a bad rap?

184 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6796 05:02

>>183 it had a falling out with chocolate. For centuries, they used to go together everywhere, until one day an English confectioner decided to see what would happen if he used vanilla on its lonesome. Chocolate's been out to get nilly ever since; I'd say it may be justified, but everyone from the original conflict is dead, so maybe it's time to look past it?

Who is your favorite video game music composer and what have they scored?

187 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6796 08:58

>>186
I'm tempted to pick somebody obscure for the hipster points, but I have to go with the somewhat predictable Yasunori Mitsuda (of the Chrono Trigger, Xenogears). Mainly because I'm forever in love with "Corridors of Time."

(Masafumi Takada is cool too. There, +5 hipster points.)

Because I'm feeling lazy, who is your favorite video game music composer and what have they scored?

Kevin Schilder. He did the soundtracks to Heretic, Hexen, Hexen II, Mageslayer and maybe some other stuff, but those are the ones I know.

>>194
What song do you like when you're sad?

194 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6796 23:09

>>193
I prefer albums. Usually softer, calmer stuff (post-rock, shoegaze, dreampop, that kind of thing) is more pleasant. Heavier music just makes me feel worse for whatever reason.

>>195
Do you have any favorite hats? And why is this thread so much more popular than the demands thread ;_;

195 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6796 23:27

>>194
A hat I wear a lot is a sort of thick black beanie with a narrow rim around the front that serves absolutely no purpose but looks rather cool.

It's easier to answer questions than fulfill demands. Also every answer is somewhat personal, which might make this more interesting for the chance to peer briefly into another dokyun's life. For example, I decided to answer your question solely because I really enjoy the type of music you listen to.

198 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6797 01:45

Keep being yourself, but let her know you're a strong dokyun who can take care of her. Friendships become friend-zones when the romantic provocateur in question is unable to prove himself as a suitable partner.

Also, 200 GET.

Who will you see next and what will you do with them?

202 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6797 17:04

>>201
My social worker. She will probably try to get me some benefits, and I'll complain about the welfare state (despite being a poor NEET) and we'll argue until after her shift has ended (this happens often).

It was a nightmare in which I was chased down a corridor by a bunch of stuffed toys. Then they turned into puppies. Then I woke up. To this day, it remains the only nightmare I have ever had.

208 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6800 00:56

>>207 I was in a putrid public toilet finding a urinal to take a piss in. I had bare feet and most people missed the urinal when they took a piss, so I stepped in it.

If you could have an unlimited supply of one type of food for the rest of your life (and suffer no ill effects), what would it be?

216 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6837 12:00

>>215
Probably pizza. It's relatively healthy in that it covers many food groups with the right toppings, delicious, filling, easy to eat and I never get tired of it. Would save me lots of money on many meals.

>>217

220 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6838 09:53

>>219
Smoked weed for the second time in my life with some friends and I showed them Mindgame. I felt really worried about the fact that they did not seem to be really enjoying the movie, so I felt really uncomfortable the whole time. I realized later that this unnatural paranoia may have been a side effect of the weed. (Also, not a question but whatever)

If you could have any job, what would it be? (Assuming that you could also somehow gain the requirements to do that job well.)

Why are women so hard to understand?

241 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6842 20:37

What is your favorite thing about Touhou

248 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6860 19:51

>>247
Too... many... answers... aughhh

I'm going to have to go with the bullet patterns. Some of them in particular are absolutely beautiful, and they have the sort of beauty you can only appreciate by trying desperately to make it through them without dying. It's definitely not something you can get just by staring at screenshots.

>>249
Which Touhou character has your favourite hat?

249 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6860 22:26

>>248
I've always liked Marisa's spin on the cliched witch hat. Though the mopcaps that seem rather popular in Gensokyo are rather cute too so I suppose those come second.

Who is your waifu? What does waifuism mean to you?

251 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6861 07:43

>>250

Ahiru from Princess Tutu. She's so kind, so beautiful, and so silly and childish that I just want to protect her. I think waifuism can be a lovely thing if you find that reality doesn't have what you want. But like any relationship, taking it too far is unhealthy.

>>252

Do you tan easily, or are you more likely to burn?

252 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6861 07:52

>>251
Usually, I neither tan nor burn, save for one isolated incident wherein part of my neck/chest ended up sunburnt. So I'd have to say I'm more likely to burn.

>>253
Would you please tell me about your favourite webcomic(s), if any?

253 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6861 08:29

Well now! I read way too many webcomics, so I couldn't really choose.

  • Three Word Phrase: my current favorite. It is consistent in making me chuckle, and it's rarely predictable.
  • Gunshow: A close second to the above for the same reasons.
  • NonCanon: Doesn't always make me laugh, but it has a knack for hitting uncomfortably close to home. The art is pretty good too.
  • Dinosaur Comics: used to be my favorite but lately hasn't been quite as funny, though still a good read.
  • Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal: As above, the older comics are much better, but new ones are still amusing.
  • A Softer World: Seems kind of pretentious until you realize how funny it is.

What are your opinions of the comics listed above?

Three Word Phrase: Good
Gunshow: Mixed, but tends to be fun
NonCanon: ??? I must read this!
Dinosaur Comics: It's something I read every day, I maybe laugh once a week :(
SMBC: Pretty good. I really like the videos.
A Software World: Mixed. I sometimes really like it.

>>253

255 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6861 18:12

>>254 I like Dueling Analogs webcomics because they make fun of many video games, and they have a "rejected Megaman robot master" comic on occasion.

The sad thing is the picture's not too far off, though my face is a little rounder. A while back I did a thing where you upload your face and get it matched to a celebrity. I got Cary Grant - I'd like to believe I'm that handsome but honestly it's pretty far off.

>>270 What was special about your most impressive poop ever, one that you were proudest of?

270 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6864 18:08

>>269
Its shape and smoothness. Somehow I managed to curl it into a perfect circle on the near-horizontal part of the toilet bowl. I regret not having had access to a camera at the time, because the shape put me in mind of those zen calligraphy pictures adorning the walls of some Japanese restaurants I've visited, that consist of a freehand-drawn circle in a single brushstroke. I wish I remember what I'd eaten to make my poop that smooth. OK, I guess it's time to stop gushing and start asking a question.

>>271
Where would I be now if I had not decided to study Japanese all those years ago?

271 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6864 18:37

>gushing

delicious choice of phrase

Hmmm i'd need to know where you were all those years ago, you might be in the same place, or you might have used the time you spent learning Japanese on another language and be in that country, or on some other skill and you might be somewhere now using that skill, maybe even getting paid for it!

Well, >>272, what's your favourite food? It may seem like an unimaginative question but I'm genuinely interested.

>>273
Who is your favorite philosopher?

273 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6864 21:11

>>272
Currently it's Michael Schmidt-Salomon, mainly because he is the only philosopher whose work I have not only read excerpts from. He posits the intriguing view that morality is completely unnecessary, provided decisions about right and wrong can be made on the basis of ethics.

>>274
How can I avoid running out of patience when tidying up a very messy room? As it stands, I tend to get fed up and stop working after less than five minutes of sorting things into piles.

274 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6864 21:29

>>273 get yourself a timer. set it to five minutes; you are obligated to clean up as hard as you can during those five minutes, and obligated to stop when it stops ticking. When you get used to five, work your way up. If the mess is extreme, you can stop at about 15 minutes a day. Eventually, you will find that you have made solid progress and maybe even don't need to keep cleaning, circumstances depending (this time does not include other chores like vacuuming, dishwashing, dusting, etc.).

Unless you're like me and live with a packrat and an enabler and everything you clean out gets filled in with more crap.

>>275

I made the mistake of substituting Parmesan with Cheddar in a carbonara yesterday. Didn't really work and it's not something I recommend. I might actually try using Brie, though.

>>275
The strawberry syrup from the recipe on the FoodWishes blog (whose URL is blacklisted on 4-ch for some reason). Quite pleasant, though far too sweet at the soda dilution ratios the recipe suggests. I would recommend 1 part syrup to at least 5 parts water.

>>276
A few times. When I was around five years old, I envied the greater range of clothing cuts available to girls (they get to wear skirts and trousers, and we only get the latter! Blatant sexism, I say!), and when I entered puberty, I learned that girls could have multiple orgasms and was envious once again. Also, girls looked better in long hair than I could pull off, and seemed to have much softer skin than me. That seemed like nice attributes to have. Then when I got a girlfriend, she told me about her excruciating period pains, and my envy subsided rather quickly.

>>277
Will there ever be a Kantian-style Enlightenment movement in Muslim nations? If so, what will the results look like?

278 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6865 17:40

>>277
I don't know about Kantian-style. The various populaces (in uprising or no) don't seem very clear that they want that, which is what it would really take for me to consider it a "movement". Their diverse home-grown attempts at any sort of philosophical rule includes lots of basket-case isms like Qutbism, Baathism, and Jamahirya. Even the few that found some modicum of success in democratic-ish ventures during the 20th century aren't looking too healthy at the moment, while at the same time a lot of these non-benevolent dictatorships have a huge shitstorm on their hands, even if they aren't in actual danger of losing power.

But I'm no expert, what the fuck do I know.

>>279
If it's a girl, I'm sorely tempted to go with Reimu, at least as a middle name because my wife would insist on a more common first name.

If it's a boy, I've always been partial to Eric. That would probably also be relegated to middle name, though, because my wife and I are planning to give any children we have completely androgynous first names. Haven't decided on any specific first names yet, though.

Do you think there is a future for the Euro? If so, what needs to change in order for it to happen?

284 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6866 02:40

>>283 No. For a common currency area to work, people need to be able to pack up and move to another part of the area without much difficulty - which is difficult when its constituent states have different languages and cultures. The states need to be politically stable and represented equally to some degree so its citizens don't resent the federal government. The economies of each state in the area should have about the same composition or wealth so monetary policy never has to exacerbate problems in one economy while helping in another. Also, its constituent states need to be willing to make unconditional sacrifices for other states in need, or at least be reasonable about their demands.

Do you think the USA will completely abandon the principle of separation of church and state within your lifetime? If so, when, and if not, to what extent will it be further eroded?

287 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6875 16:19

>>286
It seems improbable. The US public grows a bit less religious with every passing generation. Short of wholesale demographic changes involving the rapid displacement of the native population by imported groups who are vastly more religious (cough Eurabia cough Sharia law cough) it seems unlikely.

What, in your opinion, are the values and considerations by which everyone ought to conduct themselves?

290 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6875 22:49

>>289
I believe that people must take responsibility for the results of their actions. I also believe that Kant doesn't get enough respect today when we speak of ethics. I believe that you must become the change you want to see in the world. By this I mean that you are obligated to practice the virtues you wish to see become more common. If you want to live in a world in which people speak the truth, this obliges you to be truthful and forthright in all your dealings with others, for example.

What is your opinion on the official shiptoasting thread? Does or will it bring about a noticeable change in quality in other /dqn/ threads, and if do, are these changes positive or negative?

What is your opinion on MMOs? Do you play any?

294 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6876 06:30

>>293
I started out with Ultima Online back in 2001/02, got bored of it only two years later though. I never played any MMO on its official servers since, but I did play some WoW on a free private server (back when Burning Crusade was the most recent expansion, way before <Lv.20 characters became free to play) with increased drop and XP rates. The main reason I stopped playing was getting back into university after two years of NEET status. I have not played any other MMOs before or since that, though I've watched my brother play Everquest 2, Star Wars Galaxies, City of Heroes and a handful of others whose titles I've forgotten. He doesn't seem to stick to one game for very long and prefers to just use up the free trial periods, never to return. His EQ2 and SWG accounts were slightly more long-lived, though.

>>295
Since >>293 only answered one of >>292's questions, would you mind picking up the slack? Does or will [the official shiptoasting thread] bring about a noticeable change in quality in other /dqn/ threads, and if so, are these changes positive or negative?

295 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6876 06:51

>>294
The only noticeable change I've seen is people complaining about it in other threads. The actual shitposters either don't realize or don't care that their posts are shit. The only purpose that thread serves is an outlet for people to make ironically bad posts.

Anyway, I think it's fruitless to try to dictate the content people post on the internet. Some forums try to do so with heavy moderation, it's elitist quality! But it never works too well in practice. The best thing to do is ignore the bad posts and bump quality threads with quality posts of your own.

>>296
What's your favorite internet community (either currently or in your past internet history)?

296 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6876 08:22

>>295
The comment board on Userfriendly.org used to be my favourite hangout from early 2001 to 2003\friendly posters, witty banter, light-handed moderation based on the rule-of-thumb of "don't post what you wouldn't like your friend's 14-year-old sister to see", and even politics trolls dealt with in level-headed discussion. I spent so much time there that my parents' phone bill went through the roof several times until they got a flat-rate internet service (ah, the days of pay-by-minute dial-up Internet). Then I got too busy with studies to visit more than once every few months, much less comment, and when I got more free time and came back, I discovered the place had turned into a hive of oversensitive whiners, right-wingers who got offended as soon as their perceptions were challenged, and moderators who had banned several of the most interesting posters. Most of the other interesting people I had come to regard as friends had left in protest shortly after the first bannings. The exiles formed a small LiveJournal community which I also joined, but it never really was anywhere near as good as it had been on the comment board.
Currently, it's a toss-up between /dqn/ and the regulars in the Vocaroo threads on 4chan's /soc/. Speaking of which, woo yay, 4chan's back up!

>>297
Do you use social networking sites for work-related reasons, privately, both, or neither? If your answer isn't "neither", post your impressions of the communities you've seen and/or joined there!

297 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6876 09:35

>>296 Kinda both, for a long time it was mainly to talk to my girlfriend (long distance relationship) but now she's moved in with me, she's deleted her facebook. A couple of my good friends have deleted theirs as well, so there's not much else I use it for. My partner in my own small business has moved to another city so we keep in touch about work on it, and a facebook group is kinda the main base of operations for a Miku hologram concert team I'm part of (I play bass). I have over 500 friends on it, real people that I know and like irl, but every day I realise how little I care for what most of them have to say, and usually a casual glance at the main stream just annoys me.

>>298 How do you feel about image macros becoming mainstream, and generally just being called "memes" by regular people whether they actually are what we'd call "memes" or not?

>>300
I buy a large apartment in Fukuoka as well as a medium-sized business, whose administration I leave completely to the previous owners. I then live in Japan long enough to become a naturalized citizen, gradually accumulating legal recordings of every anime I ever pirated, as well as licensed copies of every pirated game I own. Eventually I will buy a second home either in or near Akihabara, Tokyo. Both my homes will be decorated with all sorts of otaku paraphernalia and each contain a big-screen TV with satellite subscription, separate dedicated gaming rigs for eroge and danmaku shooters, and be hooked up to fibre-optic internet of the fastest available speed. I will fund large-scale campaigns raising awareness and petitioning the movie, music and game industry for an end to region-coding and similar restrictive measures, as well as calling on the Tokyo governor (should Ishihara or a similar person still occupy that office) to end his otaku-bashing and manga censorship. I will spend any remaining funds not needed for living expenses and upkeep on donations to ailing anime studios and impoverished mangaka whose work I have enjoyed. Yes, I am a huge anime nerd who feels guilty about all the torrenting.

Is it possible to change one's nature?

303 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6876 18:07

>>302
Sure. Our nature's really just a combination of our memories, our awareness, and our conditioning. If you're strong enough to recondition yourself, pay more attention to things, lost your memories, or made many more memories, I wouldn't be surprised if you changed some... what exactly do you mean by nature, though? It's too hard of a term to define, I think. If we judge a person through their actions, maybe only their actions have to change.

What is the stupidest thing you've done all year?

317 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 06:35

>>315
If you have a basement, hide out there. Alternatively, keep cool with ice cold drinks and stay indoors. Shut the curtains to keep the sun and heat out of the home.

>>317
Are you guilty of shitposting?

318 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 06:38

>>315
Air flow - open windows (doors if necessary) and find where you can get the air moving. For example. if you open windows on opposite sides of the room you can get a good wind going between them. Hang out where it's coolest.

Really you should just buy an electric fan, they really aren't that expensive and they can really help the air flow especially when combined with open windows.

Besides that, wear light clothes, eat cold foods, take cold showers, get a haircut, put ice on the back of your neck, lose weight. Turn off electronics that generate heat. Don't stay in your house - go out for a swim, hang out at a library with AC, whatever.

What strange force of nature made three different people reply to 315?

320 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 07:31

>>319
Looking at the timestamps, I see that all of them posted within a five-minute time span. Even DQN does not usually get this many posts per minute. Heatwaves seem to be a popular topic in general around this time of year, affecting people in lots of different places.

>>321
Will the world ever decide on a universal mains voltage, and if so, will Christians see this as another sign of impending Armageddon?

321 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 08:20

>>320
no, and even if yes, no

>>322
I am wasting 321GET with a curt answer and a stupid question. Does this make you upset?

322 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 09:34

>>321 not really man.

>>322 What's the best small furry animal?

323 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 11:04

>>322 A cat.

>>234 You're cold: sweater or blanket?

324 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 11:17

>>323
Ideally a hot bath, but given those choices I'll take the blanket.

>>325
Are Japanese air-conditioned beds (Kuchofuku) the best thing ever in summer? Please give reasons for your answer.

325 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 11:35

>>324
Yes. It allows you to regulate a comfortable temperature without having to spend higher amounts of energy, such as what is required to use an air conditioner or fan.

>>326
Are Japanese heated tables (kotatsu) the best thing ever in winter? Please give reasons for your answer.

326 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 11:42

>>325
No, because the heat is too localized. You end up getting drowsy and possibly sweaty, which might make you catch a cold if you don't also have central heating. Still, I wouldn't mind owning one.

>>327
Would you prefer living in a big city, a small to medium town, or a tiny village? Why did you choose that answer?

327 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 14:10

>>326
A small to medium town sounds nice and easy going, I like a small environment while being able to recognize faces where I go.

>>328
What time do you normally wake up?

328 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 17:30

>>327
Normally between 7 and 10 am if I have no classes in the morning (otherwise 6.30-8), but because it gets so bright early, recently I keep waking up between 4.30 and 6.30 even on weekends and holidays, no matter when I go to bed.

>>329
Hot summers or freezing winters, which are the lesser evil?

329 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 18:13

>>328
Subjectively speaking, freezing winters are better. I hate heat. It's often impossible to beat the heat, but with cold I can dress up in warm clothes. Heat just makes me feel miserable and irritated, and not a fun person to be around. It also makes any form of exercise give me a splitting headache.

Objectively speaking though, winters are probably more dangerous to humanity - life tends to flourish more toward the equator.

>>330
What should I make with pepperoni (besides pizza)?

330 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 18:25

>>329
You could slice it up, and have it with some biscuits. Throw in some cheese or vegetables (cucumber, tomato, possibly herbs).

How should I address transsexual people in the third person if I don't know their gender?

335 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 21:10

>>334
The generic third-person singular gender in English is "he," isn't it? Use that.

>>336
How are you taking it easy?

336 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 21:19

silently nodding in approval of your answer instead of being a PC Nazi

>>337
It's too hot where I live. Is it too hot where you live?

337 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 21:30

>>336
It's only about 63 F. That's hot for where it is but I don't consider it very hot at all.

>>338
Does heat make people less intelligent?

>>339
What's that?

339 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6878 23:20

>>337
While heat doesn't make people any less intelligent, it does cause them to act less rationally than if it were room temperature.

What do you mean by fantasy...? I guess one of mine is living in a monastery.

>>343
If you could live the rest of your life completely alone but knowing you could still get food, water, shelter etc, would you choose to?

343 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6879 10:50

>>338 it's a thing for picking stitching out of material, see

>>343 How do you sell soul to a soulless people who sold their soul?

344 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6879 10:52

Yes, a million times yes. Preferably on an island or on top of a mountain.

>>344
If you woke up tomorrow as a world leader, would you rather be feared or loved?

345 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6879 11:03

>>343
I'm not sure how you even sell it in the first place.

>>344
I'd hope both, probably disliked though, if anything. This world is shitty and it needs a punching bag. If things got bad, I'd try to become a feared man...

>>346

If the planet had for some reason needed to be locked perpetually to one season, which would you choose?

347 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6879 15:57

>>346
Wouldn't axial tilt lock it into two seasons (one per hemisphere)? Anyway, I'd probably go with spring because it has the most bearable temperatures, though long-term effects on the ecosystem I can't even begin to speculate about.

>>348
What historical event would you like to change? How and why would you change it, and how do you think this would change the present?

348 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6879 17:08

>>347
As for me, I'd like to meddle with the potty-pioneers. Wikipedia tells me that the English invented our style of toiletry in 1880. No inventor is mentioned. I'd like to make any change possible to ensure the west poops in a manner as kawaii and refined as in the east, even if Japanese don't use squat toilets all that much anymore.

>>348
How do I stop getting distracted by video games, /dqn/ and anime long enough to live a studious, virile and healthy life?

349 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6879 17:32

>>348
One thing that I find helps a lot is to not have your PC running 24/7, or if you need it for your studies etc, create a separate user account on your OS which can access only homework- and productivity-related applications.

>>350
What is your favourite recent (less than 25 years old) cover of a song from the first half of the 20th century? Post YouTube links if you can find them!

350 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6880 07:08

>>349
This is more of a remix than a cover, but I love Venetian Snares' take on "Gloomy Sunday":

It's rare for an idm track to have such a well-crafted buildup / climax / denouement.
(PS: Youtube sound quality is shit so try to find a hi-fi version somewhere.)

>>351
How much power does music have over your emotions?

351 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6880 08:08

>>350
Not that much, really. Usually, the music I listen to depends on my mood rather than the other way round.

>>352
What is your favourite chemical element?

352 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6880 08:14

Thorium. If only it were used instead of Uranium for safe nuclear energy!

>>353
Can you recommend a regular Enka music podcast? Streaming internet radio would also be awesome!

353 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6886 12:31

Unfortunately not. I had a look around, and it appears that there was one run by o-cha.com, but it no longer exists. Sorry.

>>354
What single thing do you hate the most and why?

354 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6886 14:51

Myself. I'd written a reply earlier about being too analytic and disaffected to enjoy anything genuinely. But I was tripping at the time and ended up with something unnecessarily long which would have been an eyesore to read anyway.

>>355
What single thing do you love the most and why?

355 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6886 15:17

>>354
My beloved waifu. I can't really put into words the reasons why, but I suppose it's largely to do with finding a purpose.

What are your plans for Sunday?

360 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6900 10:32

>>359
My Sunday is just ending - I cleaned a bunch and rearranged my room, I'm pretty happy with it. Now I'm making rolled cabbage but I'm worried I put too much toubanjan in the soup (it's gonna be hella spicy!) My plans for tomorrow are to go to work and fuck around on the internet for 8 hours because there's no actual work for me to do the next two days.

>>361
Why do you visit DQN?

What are your thoughts on shamanism?

362 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6900 17:04

>>361
It was cool and meaningful and interesting right up until I was contacted by ghosts (not actually ghosts, but demons). No sirree, nothing but that good old religion for me now.

Ave Caesar!

>>363
363 is a palindrome. 363/3 = 121, also a palindrome. 121/11=11, also a palindrome. That's three palindromic prime factors! How lucky does this make you feel, >>363?

363 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6900 17:50

It makes me feel all tingly inside.

Hakurei Reimu, Kirisame Marisa, Alice Margatroid, Letty Whiterock, Shikieiki Yamaxanadu, Ono no Komachi, Kaenbyou Rin, Yakumo Yukari, Yakumo Ran, Yakumo Chen, Yagokoro Eirin, Inaba Tewi, Reisen Udongein Inaba, Hōraisan TeruyoKaguya, Fujiwara no Mokō, Hieda no Akyū, Mystia Lorelei, Morichika Rinnosuke, Flandre Scarlet, Izayoi Sakuya, Koakuma, Patchouli Knowledge, Remilia Scarlet, Yuyuko, Hong Meiling, Shameimaru Aya, Hatate (what was her last name?), Cirno, Daiyōsei, Kawashima Nitori, Kochiya Sanae, Yasaka Kanako, Suwako, Nazrin, Genji, Okū (damn it, I used to know her proper name), Satsuki, the Prismriver Sisters whose first names I've forgotten, and ... arrgh, what was the half-ghost gardener with the two swords at Hakugyokurō named? Can't believe I forgot her name.

>>368
Can you find and link to a picture in which all of these characters are depicted together? Rule 34 is obviously a huge bonus, but not strictly required.

368 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6901 21:43

>>367
This one has all of the Windows era characters with official portraits, as far as Fairy Wars - so it's lacking characters such as Rinnosuke and Genji. Good job though! You can remember a lot more last names than I. The one you couldn't remember was Konpaku Youmu.

>>369
What is your current desktop background?

369 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6901 22:06

An upscaled version of this Morichika Rinnosuke/Ibaraki Kasen image. Normally I tend to only use astronomy pictures (both photographs and artists' impressions), but this one was a good reminder to pull myself together and actually study for finals instead of slacking off all the time.

What is your favorite word in a foreign language? If you can't think of any, a loanword is fine too.

>>369
I'm sure there's a better one that I can't think of right now, but off the top of my head:
‚’‚ν‚©‚ρ - The vague sense of discomfort you experience when in a situation you're not used to (such as writing with your non-strong hand.)

Assuming I get a choice of when to use it, and unless an ethically superior cause comes along before I get around to it, betting large sums on the results of several sports events would be my choice.

No! I suppose it would be an interesting experience though, but I don't foresee myself wanting to get into a relationship (a man living alone in a basement has no chance of adopting) or going out of my way to earn more money to support another human being. I'm struggling to provide for myself as it is!

>>403
If it isn't in English, I can't read it.

>>405
Have you ever tried to learn Esperanto? Have you ever tried to study LISP or read SICP? What was your motivation to do these things or what stops you from doing them?

405 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6914 00:14

>>404
I never tried to learn Esperanto because I'm not sure what its for. I learned LISP but didn't read SICP. Lisp doesn't have a lot of good libraries, so it's difficult to accomplish anything in it.

>>406
Do any countries speak Esperanto or is it just a made up language? If you were forced to write an OEL-ish manga in a language other than English or Esperanto what would it be about and what language would you write it in.

406 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6914 00:35

>>405
It's no nations official language, but it's spoken around the world. I'd write a manga using Klingon.

>>407
Regarding the conflict in Syria, who do you think will win, the Syrian Government or the Free Syrian Army?

Free Syrian Army.

What is your favourite type of insect?

Millipedes are pretty cool.

>>409
Are you a tea kinda guy or a coffee kinda guy?

409 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6914 18:50

>>408
Tea, definitely. I love more or less all types of tea, especially green tea. Can't even remember the last time I had coffee. More importantly, the person behind me feels it is his solemn duty to inform you that millipedes are myriapods, not insects.

>>410
If you owned a dungeon, what sorts of things would you have in it?

410 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6914 22:03

>>413 what's your least favourite tv show?

413 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6915 00:41

>>411
It really depends on the type of class. Preschool class would be tasteless and throwaway class at a community college would be boring.

>>413
What's your favorite part of a rainforest?

414 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6915 00:51

>>412
Hard to choose, there are so many bad TV shows. One that comes to mind is Deal or No Deal, the premise is just so utterly stupid it makes my head hurt. Bachelor/Bachelorette style reality shows are pretty painful to watch too.

I don't actually watch many TV shows, so I guess the least favourite TV show that I actually watch is Modern Family, it's frustratingly predictable and always plays it safe.

>>413
Having just explored a rainforest a couple days ago, I'd have to say the valleys (if there are any). I think it looks really cool and mysterious to look down into a rainforest going down into a deep valley.

>>415
If you had $1000 for a vacation, where would you go and what would you do?

415 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6915 04:24

>>414
If this 1000 dollars excludes flights, I'd probably go somewhere cheap that such a monetary figure would last a bit. India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal - somewhere really nice like that. You can get by on about 15-20 dollars a day there!

>>416
What is your least favourite anime?

416 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6915 04:42

>>415
Musashi Gundoh, I tried watching it because I heard it was so bad it was funny, but it turned out to be so bad that I couldn't even stand watching more than two episodes.

>>417
What movie did you enjoy at first but grew to dislike upon repeat viewings?

417 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6915 07:08

Hard to choose. I liked >>123's question because I'm very curious for the same reason. I'll ask it again!

>>423
Are there any forced-registration online forums you know whose atmosphere is not ruined by popularity circle jerks? (Besides Kingdom of Loathing, which has already been mentioned.) If so, where can they be found?

423 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6916 06:17

>>422
I like Twitter a lot. A handful of DQNs are on there. It's the only place I really visit other than a few smaller IRC channels and text/imageboards. I suppose Reddit doesn't really have circlejerks, but the downside is that it's full of Redditors.

>>424
What's your Twitter username/any other DQNs you know of on the site? I need to follow more DQNs but I don't really know who's on it. I know of @disassemblyline, @FountainOfElly, @touhou_fan, @dysrexia, and @captaindangus for certain... but it's hard to know.

424 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6916 07:42

Circlejerks are terrible and I hate this new generation of social network savvy DQNs. But I guess it is the HiP and hApPPeNin' place to be these days.

>>428
4chan /soc/, mostly the Vocaroo threads because I like to sing-a and read-a. Also /d/ for the occasional trap image dumps.

>>435
Do you enjoy singing? If so, ever uploaded anything to Vocaroo, Audioboo or the like? Do you have another semi-public outlet?

435 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6916 21:59

>>434
I absolutely cannot stand hearing my own voice in recordings. It's practically torture. The only singing I have ever done was hymns in church when I was a child.

How many people do you think regularly post on DQN? How many lurkers/occasional posters do you think we have?

436 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6916 22:32

>>435
There are about 6 DQN regular posters. About two of these were invited to Darkpa's Garden Party. Plus crossover between SAoVQ and /lounge/.

There are about 10-15 /jp/ and /Bun/ shitposters. More disturbingly, 1 or 2 normalfags from /soc/ and 99chan.

What is the most serious injury you have ever incurred?

450 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6918 19:10

>>449
The injury itself wasn't too impressive (about half a cm³ of skin and tissue sliced off the side of a toe), but the fact that it happened in brackish water and went untreated for over ten days, without more than a bandage to stop the bleeding, was life-threatening and had me spending three weeks in hospital at age eight. In retrospect, my parents should probably have sued the school whose class trip it had happened on, considering my foot was almost twice the width of my sandal by the time I got back. A bigger injury with less drastic consequences than a scar was a 2cm deep and long tear in my calf muscle from a rusty nail. It received prompt and proper medical care apart from stitches, which I refused for some reason now utterly unclear to me.

Looking up at a tall, imposing rocky cliff face with achingly clear blue sky behind it. There's a subtle and impossible to ignore sense of the point of view's rapid uncontrolled descent, even though there are no obvious motion cues in the painting itself.

Short answer: none.

Long answer: none that I know of, but it wouldn't surprise me if I did have one. I have, in the past, suspected myself of having Asperger's or Schizoid Personality Disorder. In both cases I have a significant number of symptoms, but not enough to be particularly convinced.

Quite honestly, I'm a spoiled kid of of the 21st century, and would probably go crazy without my modern conveniences. But if I had to choose, I would be curious to live in ancient Minoan civilization. Not too much is known about them, since Crete was completely destroyed by a volcano, but they did seem to be pretty advanced. They even had flush toilets.

It really depends on the individual - age doesn't have anything to do with it. What if I fall in love with a 70-year-old? But as a rule of thumb, I tend to find the thought of sex with anybody older than my mother (49) a bit creepy.

I barely remember what I had, except that it was multiple courses. I think fresh lake fish was part of it. Of course there was plenty of fancy cheese to go with all the different wines. The combination of chocolate with a dessert wine was particularly delicious. I probably tasted about 10 different wines that night. Good thing I wasn't paying for it.

Molesting my girlfriend in her sleep, only to discover she was actually awake. Not knowing she had actually been awake for the past half hour, I panicked and pretended to be asleep, which in retrospect was probably the dumbest thing to do, since she got (justifiably) upset at me for lying about it, though fortunately she forgave me quickly since it was one of her secret fetishes. I never forgave myself though.

Would people be more interested in science if there were internationally binding legislation to express all measurements exclusively in scientific (exponential) notation using SI base units?

512 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6930 10:40

>>511
I think people would strongly resist such legislation. Assuming people did accept it though, I doubt it would change people's interests. People are forced to learn how to do all sorts of things in school, but it doesn't make them any more interested in those subjects.

Also, I like the idea but it doesn't make much sense for small numbers. Just imagine speed limit signs with figures like 2.0~10^1m/s.

There is a question about me.
When it makes cup noodles with hot water of 300 degrees, how long is it suitable to wait?

517 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6933 15:37

>>516
Well, that's a pretty complex question, really. It depends on a huge number of factors - the type of noodles, the volume of the container, the mass of hot water, the temperature (300 Farenheit? Celsius? Kelvin?), air pressure, wind speed, gravity, acceleration, whether the month has an "r" in it or not... I can't really help you unless you give me more information to go on.

>>515
This one time I fell off a bunk bed in the middle of the night, onto a concrete floor, fracturing my wrist. The place my family and I were staying at was pretty much the middle of nowhere; miles away from any kind of inhabitation, and tens of miles away from the nearest hospital. So yeah, that sucked.

Very interesting... I haven't read any philosophy on it at all. I suppose it's the thing that clocks, journals, and memories make, isn't it? Hmm...

>>520
What philosophers / works of philosophy should I introduce to my female friend who's somewhat ignorant about the field? She said she'd read some, but I think she was just saying that to be nice... Out of what I've found most enjoyable, easiest to read, and most interesting, I was thinking of lending to her:

  • Descartes (Meditations)
  • Berkeley (Principles of Human Knowledge)
  • Hume (Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding)
  • Kant (Critique of Pure Reason)
  • Schopenhauer (World as Will and Representation)
  • Nietzsche (Thus Spake Zarathustra)
  • Wittgenstein (Tractatus, Blue and Brown books)

I felt the need to mention her gender because I feel women are not as inclined towards philosophy as men. I'm also worried that these may be too many books, but she's a shut-in, so it's not like she has much better to do... Well, if there are any I should take out, replace, or add to that list, I'd really appreciate your input.

520 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6934 08:24

>>519
Just suggest one at first, or she probably will not read any of them. Pick the one you want her to read most, and if she actually gets into it, you can go from there. Just beware that the average person, regardless of gender, do not really want to put in the energy to read works of philosophy.

Hmm. Will you get water at all when you open the tap? At normal ambient temperature and pressure, at 300 degrees C. you would get what the engineering textbooks call "superheated steam."

This seems quite a dangerous way to prepare cup ramen. You could be scalded and badly burned. Have you considered boiling some water in a metal pan instead?

Regardless of sexuality, cheating on someone is a terrible thing to do. By all means break up with them and then start a new relationship, but doing so behind their back just shows a complete lack of respect, commitment and common decency.

548 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6940 14:41

>>546
I can't say I have a specific system of morals or ethics. I find them to be a very subjective thing, and one that is often constantly evolving. My own morals and ethics are derived from the previously conceived concepts of others (those I primarily agree with). To follow any one particular system feels slightly dogmatic, and to me leaves a lot open for corruption. Though, overall the ideas that pertain to morals and ethics remain a complicated thing to consider and I argue I can't really come to anything conclusive in regards to them, only act on what I feel is right.

My girlfriend's like ten years older to me. How would I explain that to my parents if I introduced her to them?

>>568
"Mom, Dad, meet my girlfriend. She's ten years older than me."
or some variation of that...
Alternatively, you could just not tell them. They would be faced with the prospect of rudely asking her age, and when they do, your older and wiser girlfriend might be able to handle the situation better. If wisdom is actually a direct function of age.

>>570
Is wisdom a function of age, and if so, what is the function?

570 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6943 10:28

>>569
It might very well be. This sounds like a problem in psychohistory, but I can take a crack at it. For a = honesty, b = dishonesty, c = hardships, d = morale, e = kindness, the function might look something like this (taking all values as nonnegative integers): f(x) = [cd(ax + e)]/b
Now we need some sort of "wisdom scale" by which to judge the results.

>>572
I use the mnemonic "example given" for e.g. and "in explanation" for i.e. However, I see no reason to use them unless you're trying to sound scholarly. The phrases "for example" and "such as" are more natural, and less disruptive of sentence flow.

581 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6947 03:26

>>580
I think they are a great idea, and a vast improvement over forced registration boards and social networking. I love the idea that people are judged on their words and ideas over their identities. However, there are problems, such as lack of a diverse userbase and simplistic content filtering.

>>582
Can you think of a better content organization and filtering system than our current thread/post/sage system? (And one that's not moderation or a voting system)

582 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6947 07:27

A thread hide/subscribe feature, sage by default (and renaming it to be a "don't bump" feature), text art detection, and better RSS (or API access) would all be good incremental improvements to this existing system and have been proven successes on other boards.

>>583
I'd do a quick google search, find nothing on the first page of results, look back at your question, and frown after rereading the second clause, realizing that you apparently won some competition featured in a game, not an actual game competition. Desperate for clarification, I would tab back to the search results, see this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yoN0mgxR1M and stop watching after two and a half minutes, thinking it's probably completely unrelated. Then I'd give up and stop caring, smile politely and say "good for you".

>>586
I've always liked crisps plain. Not even ready salted, but as plain as they can be. I live near a crisp factory, and as children my friends and I used to sneak in and steal crisps. I sometimes snagged plain ones before they were sent off to be salted. Then when I grew up and stopped stealing from an honest company like Walkers, they introduced those Salt & Shake crisps, and I just wouldn't put any salt in.
If I had to answer your question though, tomato sauce or ice cream (both are nice, try it). For Doritos, it's those hot salsa dips they make. Those are delicious.

625 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6960 12:41

>>624
I think most intriguing of all is the preservation of music through digital media, the internet and so on and how long it will possibly all live on. One nice example is the Golden Record we stuck on the Voyager 2 satellite; it will drift through space for many tens of thousands of years, ready to be played back at any moment. Just think of all the forms of music in early human history that, thanks to any proper method of safekeeping it, have been lost. Though I wonder, how much music from today's era will we want to actually keep, considering how terrible most of it has now become?

As for technology evolving how music can be produced and created, it really hasn't changed all that much from the early days of musique concrète. Aside from how it can sound, a synthesizer hasn't changed too much and there has not been any striking developments in acoustic instruments in a long time.

He loves his partner too much to break their heart, but not enough to feel completely satisfied. Thus he feels trapped. He enjoys the security and warmth of the relationship, and ending it would not guarantee his happiness. Yet the longer the relationship continues, the more his latent regret begins to build. The regret eats away at his happiness until he must either save himself by hurting his partner, whom he still cares about, or sacrifice his soul in order to continue the facade.

A little bit of an exaggeration, maybe, but that's the general gist. Not that I'm speaking from experience or anything.

Yes! I really enjoyed it. It struck a good balance between the mystery of what had happened to Sam Tyler, and zany 70s police antics. I also respect that it ended when and how it did, leaving things open to interpretation. This is why I was upset with Ashes to Ashes--it completely ruined that within the first five minutes, and it extended a show that should have ended peacefully.
I also watched the American pilot, which made me laugh more than anything. I don't think that was quite what they were going for.

Real answer: the em dash (\). It makes writing so much more clear than having commas all over the place. Unfortunately, it's rarely used outside of print, and as far as I'm aware it isn't taught in schools.

>>650 What is your favorite Darwin Award story?

650 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6971 19:24

>>648 My first and last practice session next week with the band for a Miku concert next year. I quit the band last week but I said I'd still come to practice since everyone else learned three songs to practice together, but I still haven't and can't be bothered learning two of them.

>>650 Which is better, the UK or USA Whose Line Is It Anyway?

651 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6972 02:59

>>650
UK, I guess? While I've never seen it, if there's a UK version of it, it must be better.

>>652
What should you be doing right now?

652 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6972 04:41

Regretting your last answer.

Do you like ribs? In general.

653 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6972 05:56

I appreciate that they make my internal organs invulnerable to moderate impacts.

Yes.

Very roughly, how many posts do you make on DQN per day?

655 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6972 09:11

Hard to say. 2-5 sounds right.

>>656
Snorks or Smurfs?

656 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6972 11:22

>>655 Smurfs, but only just.

>>656 Answer >>649's question

This one.

>>658
If you could make one item of clothing fashionable, what would it be?

658 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6973 16:00

>>657
Popped collars/lapels only because the back if my neck gets burned when I walk and I'm afraid I'll look like a douchebag if I do it. Sailors had it easy.

>>659
What do you physically feel when you're extremely bored?

659 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6973 20:34

>>658
I feel like my head was stuffed with cotton. Probably a slight headache sometimes.

>>660
What do you think is a better thing to buy: Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 or a new powerful PC?

660 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6973 21:21

>>659
I'd most certainly suggest you purchase the Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0. A powerful PC isn't really necessary these days unless you're really into PC games, but now PC games are either all trash or bad console ports.

>>661
What anime airing this fall season are you looking forward to the most?

661 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6974 04:42

>>660
After careful consideration (and googling the fall anime chart) I've determined that Chiisana Ojisan is the only one that shows any promise.

Who should I write in for the U.S. presidential election?

Liberal: 2008 Candidate Barack Obama
Conservative: Ronald Reagan's corpse

>>633
What's the legitimate government of Ireland between the Republic/Great Britain, the IRA, the PIRA, the CIRA, and the Jacobite pretenders?

663 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6974 06:36

James Joyce's corpse. (I like Great Britain myself.)

>>664
Should I get my own apartment or I quit my job and move into my dad and his girlfriend's condo's basement? Serious question

664 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6974 08:25

Get your own apartment.

Make a double toast or keep the loaf of toast and the slice of cheese to make one another day?

667 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6974 15:14

>>666
I'd be afraid of using them; I'd only injure myself. I'm more the swordfighting type.

>>668
What is your opinion on RTS games?

668 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6974 21:38

>>667
I don't like them too much. Probably I was spoiled when I was young by playing Age of Empires against PC rather slowly, with games lasting over an hour. I liked to take it easy and fully develop and overwhelm enemies.
And then I learned about SC and how it has basic strategies and other stuff. And it seemed rather dull, I couldn't appreciate turning a video game into some sort of a mechanical skill.

Whilst it's fun watching pro-gamers tearing each other apart, I'd probably get frustrated if I try to play them.

>>669
Do you like space exploration? What fascinates you the most?

669 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6974 22:02

Sure, I guess. Beauty in other parts of the universe.

>>670
Camus or Sartre?

670 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6975 03:43

>>669
I haven't read that much of either (The Rebel/Man in Revolt and The Fall; Nausea and The Wall, respectively), I guess I'd give it to Camus for style.

>>671
What's the optimal level of weeaboory?

671 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6975 04:09

>>670
I think as long as you're not blinded by it and show it outwardly in an excessive fashion it's all fine.

>>671
How do you wake up in the morning?

672 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6975 06:45

Via my alarm. I wake up slowly, and full of rage. I hate waking up to alarm clocks.

Do you find forks to be more useful than spoons?

674 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6975 20:08

>>673
Yes, I do. You can drink a soup as it is, anyway. But you can't stab people with a spoon.

>>674
Satori Komeiji or Koishi Komeiji?

675 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6975 20:17

>>674
Koishi! SA Extra is one of my favourite stages in the entire series of games, and I love Embryo's Dream from Double Spoiler. She also has the most stylish hat in my opinion.

>>676
Have you ever tried crossdressing?

676 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6988 00:08

>>675
Yes. I used to wear my girlfriend's clothes a lot. I pretended it was zany humour, but in reality I liked wearing women's clothing. They're so much prettier than men's. Unfortunately I've put on weight, so I doubt I would look good in a dress. Plus it's not particularly worth the money.

>>677
What are your thoughts on Holocaust denial?

677 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6988 00:26

There is nothing to deny since it never happened.

>>678
What do you think about 'racial guilt'? Do you feel it yourself?

678 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6988 00:35

>>677
Neither of my family lines had shit to do with slavery, wiping out native Americans, or any other race-related crap. No white guilt here, baby.

>>679
Have you noticed that treating a girl like she ain't no thang to you makes her want you even more? Pretty neat, huh?

679 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6988 01:43

>>678
Yes, I have. I find it more sad than neat. It's not just girls either, guys are equally prone to finding hard-to-get girls attractive. I think it's an evolutionary thing.

>>680 I'd be Biohazard and burping and farting would be involved in my special moves, I would stink really bad.

>>682 I read >>680's answer before I looked at >>679's picture and now all I can see is the man and woman. Is it supposed to be one of those optical illusions where it can be interpreted in different ways?

682 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6988 04:37

>>681
Yes, there are dolphins there too. 9 of them, if my memory serves me right.

>>683
How do I relieve this insufferable anticipation?!

683 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6988 04:38

>>681
Yeah, supposedly most kids see 9 dolphins instead of a man and woman.

>>683
What's your favorite optical illusion?

684 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6988 11:36

>>683
>>679's picture. I remember having a hard time seeing anything but dolphins here. This time I had to force myself to actually see dolphins (and still jumping back to a man with a woman). I need to get laid.

How can I restore innocent set of mind that I used to have?

685 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6989 00:18

>>682
I wish I knew. The best I've been able to do is distract myself with other things.

>>684
Alter your media intake. Our set of mind has a lot to do with the things we decide to read, watch and think about on a daily basis.

>>686
How fit are you?

686 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6989 02:53

Pretty fit. I gotta carry computers around all the time at work and stuff.

>>687
Why don't you like your ex?

687 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6989 03:30

>>686
She's too practical and has no tolerance for irresponsibility. She can also be pretty stubborn. Besides that she's just kind of a boring, non-adventurous kind of person.

>>688
Why do you love your ex?

688 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6989 05:20

>>687
She was really beautiful, intelligent, and creative; He was kind of interesting.

What game developer who has now gone bankrupt, out of business, or otherwise ruined would you like to revive?

689 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6989 11:35

>>688
Troika Games for their Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, Fallout series and most of all Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura, which is my personal favourite.

>>690
Which of these games do you like best?

690 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6989 15:51

>>689
I've only ever played Fallout, so I'll go with that.

>>691
What do you think's the best anime this season?

691 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6989 16:43

Chuunibyou of course. I wanted to like JoJo but it's mediocre at best.

>>692
Do you have any odd or obscure hobbies?

692 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6989 16:58

>>691
I used to be an amateur mycologist. I would go out with some equipment into my local woodland, take a few mushrooms, then go home and make spore patterns to identify them. There was absolutely no reason I did this. I just did.
More recently I've gotten into real ale, so I'm obsessed with trying new ales and hoarding bottles. When I can be bothered, I also want to look into home brewing. Maybe I'll start a microbrew, who knows.

>>693
What is your favourite question ITT, and what is your answer to that question?

693 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6989 20:03

>>692
I thought >>497's question was quite interesting. Unlike >>498, I'd happily go several hundred years ahead, perhaps even the whole 1000.

>>694
What book are you currently reading, and what do you think of it?

694 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6989 20:49

>>693
D is for Digital by Brian Kernighan. It's a great introduction to computers, focussing on the technical bits in a modern context. I wish a book like this had existed when I first got into computing almost twenty years ago.

>>695
If your home was burning down and you could only save three items, what would they be?

695 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6989 20:51

>>693
Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche. I'm quite amused by it.

>>695
Have you read Nietzsche? What do you think about his ideas?

696 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6990 16:03

>>694
1) My computer
2) Framed picture of my waifu
3) ...That's about all I really care about, actually. I suppose the last entry would have to be spare clothes or money or some such.

>>695
I have indeed; I've read Beyond Good and Evil and Thus Spoke Zarathustra. I found them both quite enjoyable, despite the fact I'm not that interested in philosophy. I liked the idea of the Übermensch, amongst other things, but parts of it were just silly.

>>697
Would you have a polyamorous relationship, given the chance?

697 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6990 17:00

>>696
I was reading some rationalist site (Less Wrong, maybe) where someone mentioned how polyamorous relationships are common among rationalists because monogamy is fairly artificial, and usually governed by religion or archaic laws. I thought it was interesting and I largely agree--it should certainly be legal and accepted--but it wouldn't be for me. I'm too neurotic and jealous. I would rather focus my romantic efforts on one person, and if he or she was dating other people as well, I would feel all paranoid and insecure.
Perhaps I would try it, given the chance, but I don't think it would work out.

>>698
If you could change one thing about your appearance, what would it be?

698 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6990 17:48

I would like to be able to grow a full, black beard. Ah, beards are so romantic. Even Yojimbo has more facial hair.

Lots of mumbling, tapping of keyboards, a printer and a guy behind me saying "...like a bird crossed with a lion, it's hard to explain."

>>702
What is the most unusual thing that you have ever eaten for breakfast?

702 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6992 14:14

>>701 Something I picked up in an Osaka AM/PM. It looked like it might have egg in it, but it didn't. I still can't describe the flavors in it.

Anxiously awaiting a reply which would secure a time for today's date. Trying to distract myself with poetry, novels, DQN, music... well, and failing at it, apparently. But all is well!

>>706
What's the most vivid, inspiring dream you've ever had?

706 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6993 03:21

>>705
I had one that was a single still image that went on for a long time. It consisted of me, sat at some small basketball court's stands (which seemed inaccessible since they were just hanging there, with no way to get down). A girl was lying down with her head on my lap, and I was seeing it in 3rd person, from afar. Everything was dark orange, as if seen through a filter. It was very melancholy, but it felt peaceful and comfortable. I spent the next week trying to feel like that again.

>>707
If you could learn any language, what would it be?

707 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6993 05:13

>>706
German. I've been studying it for a while, but I'm doing no good and have more or less given up.

>>708
Did you watch the US Presidential Debates last night? If so, general thoughts?

708 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6993 17:55

>>706
Anyone could learn any language they wanted. I want to learn Japanese, but I haven't put in enough serious study to do it. So, even having the ability to learn any language I wanted, I learned nothing. But why Japanese? It's a beautiful written language and I'd like to read and enjoy 2ch., regardless of how good it is. It might be a good eye opener to how mediocre BBSes everywhere are (with the exclusion of our utopia 4-channel).

>>708
What's the easiest way for a mute to make money?

709 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6993 18:38

>>707
I did. Obama clearly didn't want to be there. He was condescending, evasive and twitchy. Romney did okay, and at least acted like a president should. I think I'll vote Romney, even though I live in a blue state and my vote's just going to be another fart in the breeze here.

>>708
Tech support (rimshot!). Failing that, you could write cheeseball SEO-packed website fluff articles through Associated Content or a similar service.

>>710
Where, oh where, are you tonight? Why did you leave me here all alone?

710 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6993 20:33

>>709 Though you searched the world over, and thought you found true love, I found you were planning to vote for Romney, so I'm gone.

>>711 What's your favorite Slurpee flavor?

711 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6993 21:18

I've never had a slurpee.

>>712
Do you like rain?

712 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6993 23:29

>>711
Yes, I love rain. I'm not sure why. Perhaps it suits my eternally sleepy demeanor.

>>713
When was the last time you took a bubble bath?

713 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6993 23:35

>>712
I can hardly remember when I had a bath instead of a shower, so I took a bubble bath many years ago.

>>714
If you had to associate VIP and DQN to NKorea and SKorea, which country would you link to which board and why?

714 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6994 00:08

>>713
We're much less forgiving, if at all really, of the wider internet than VIPPERS. Also we don't talk about VIP here. They are our evil, freedom-loving brethren. South Korean scum they are.

>>715
If you had to associate VIP and DQN to any other nations besides the aforementioned two, which would you choose and why?

715 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6994 00:15

>>713
By the old meaning of the word, DQN refers to a stupid mindless punk, as in the ƒ„ƒ“ƒL[ kids that do nothing but loiter outside convenience stores with their cigarettes and rebellious haircuts. NKorea matches that with their mindless militaristic stupidity that has resulted in a devastated economy and starving population. VIP (as in a VIP club) is sort of appropriate for SKorea, given their rising status in the international stage.

But if you're talking about the English boards /dqn/ and /vip/, the links would be reversed. /vip/ is full of retards and unoriginal trolls and chaos (NKorea) while /dqn/ has more quality, though still plenty of shitposts and annoying people complaining about shitposts (SKorea).

>>715
Would you rather be VIP or DQN? (in terms of whatever those words mean to you)

716 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6996 08:06

>>714
France and England, perhaps? We're quite close, have a somewhat shared history, and yet still have a sort of spirited animosity towards one another. DQN would be England because we're far more gentlemanly.

>>715
Assuming VIP = celebrity and DQN = delinquent, I'd still rather be a DQN. I can't stand famous people, to be honest. They all seem obnoxious and narcissistic and so very fake.

>>717
How are you going to celebrate the 7000th?

717 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6996 23:31

Should I get a Wii U?

718 Name: grey!C.MxxuCiTo : 1993-09-6997 00:39

>>719
What color hat should I buy for winter?

719 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6997 01:00

>>718
Bright orange. Probably something like Jayne Cobb's hat in style. You should act like a tough guy or pretend to be a tourist from the Netherlands.

>>720
What do you usually wear when you're alone at home?

720 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6997 01:30

>>719
Boy am I the guy to answer your question. Actually, most of us are. The weather has finally dropped, so yesterday I wore a big ugly sweater that I got last Christmas, pajama pants with shorts underneath. During the summer, I wear a t-shirt and basketball shorts.

>>721
Do you ever need white noise playing because you're in a loud environment? Do you have a specific recording or site you use?

721 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6997 01:44

>>720
Yes! I always play white noise because my family are annoying and I have Asperger's (apparently, being seriously bothered by unnecessary noise is a common trait). I play this on a loop.

>>722
Do you have any unusual habits?

722 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6997 02:13

>>721
A lot of things usually attributed, though completely unrelated, to your aforementioned Asperger's. Obsessive organization, being bothered when objects are placed "crookedly", pedantically avoiding tactile contact with surfaces in public areas and cautiously washing my hands afterwards, occasionally rocking and contorting my body in awkward ways which are momentarily comforting. Among others I can't be arsed to recall at the moment, I have an inexplicable fascination with memorizing alphanumeric strings such as license plates and serial numbers.

>>723
Have you tried memorizing such large strings/digits? What's the most you've done?

723 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6997 08:34

>>722
I think I can memorize up to 11 digits with ease. However, I have a terrible memory for names, so memorizing my phone book is out of question. The most was 16 alphanumeric characters of my email.

Personally, I love adding up all digits or parts of phone numbers together. I even have a weird system of memorizing something by creating a strange rule for digits/numbers and calculating a sum of all digits. It's inexplicable.

When I run out of publicly available numbers or any interesting thoughts, I usually calculate squares of different numbers.

Also, I completely agree that surfaces in public areas are disgusting. I always have a small bottle of antiseptic gel with me.

>>724
What do you like to do with numbers in your free time?

724 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6997 09:09

>>723
Whenever I have a string of four or five digits, for instance a digital clock, I try to find a way of adding/subtracting/multiplying/dividing the first three or four digits to make the last one. If you allow yourself an error margin of }1, it's usually possible somehow.

>>725
Which is your favourite character thread and why?

725 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7014 22:50

>>724
Mittens (post happy things) because it ushered in a whole new era of dqn. I have to admit i don't read it much anymore though.

>>726
In what order do you put your clothes on?

726 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7014 23:01

>>725 hmmm wake up in pants and socks and then t-shirt then jeans then shirt or hoody. With shoes, gloves, socks, sleeves etc. I always put on the right one first. And hat.

>>727 Can you find a 4-digit number that isn't possible to do >>724's thing with, including the }1 error margin?

1119 doesn't work unless you allow 11-1=10. I think 1169 doesn't work no matter what.

>>728
Can you find a 5-digit number that isn't possible to do >>724's thing with, including the }1 error margin and allowing use of multiple digits?

11119

>>729
Is my solution correct?

730 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7015 01:22

>>728
Ask them politely, "please slow down." That probably won't work, so then you can escalate it to, "I'm sorry, but I don't feel safe as a passenger in this car. Please slow down." This will probably piss them off, but that's unavoidable. Open the door and hang out, screaming "IF YOU DON'T FUCKING SLOW DOWN I'M GOING TO FUCKING JUMP." If this still doesn't work, punch them in the face, jump out of the car and hope for the best (make sure to roll making your body as circular as possible, tucking your head in to avoid injury. Try to aim for some soft grass or water if you can.)

>>729
No, 11 - (1+1) = 9.

Why does my brain feel slow, foggy and unfocused? Should I take drugs?

747 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7020 19:13

>>746
It depends on what kind of drug. Perhaps a mild stimulant might help: caffeine, nicotine, or something stronger if required. Alternatively, a short walk will energize you.

>>748
Have you ever committed any serious crimes?

748 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7021 01:36

>>747 I got arrested for vandalising a supermarket, spraypainting it after a long night spree off my face on stimulants. Also I had pissed my trousers so I was quite a state in the police car. And they found a bottle of poppers when they searched me and assumed I liked to soften up my bumhole. I convinced them I was naturally just a bit spaced out but had to pay a fine.

Cashiers with heavy accents so that you have to ask them to repeat every fucking thing they say. Also cashiers who try to buddy up to you and ask prying questions instead of just doing their fucking job.

You should ask him about his Touhou obsession. He'll probably tell you about the thrill, the beauty, the never ending satisfaction and so on. However, if you ask this then there is danger that you'll never get him to shut up; it's a double-edged sword. I can't recommend it to amateurs. What this all really means, though, is that you, >>783, should just ask something silly and hope for the best.

Hmmm my favourite flags would be the Republic Of Macedonia's and maybe the state of Nova Scotia's, but would I display them outside? I'd also consider either of Scotland's flags (I prefer the Lion Rampant but i get a boner for saltires anyway) or the US Confederate flag (hung upside down, because I disagree with some of the things it stands for but it'sa saltire withs STARS all over it) or New Zealand's Ministry of Transport flag because it's quite silly.

Well, I've been in plenty of such situations and I have a terrible memory. The most recent one I can remember is failing my driving test 5 times. Since I couldn't drive and had to retake the test every week, those were the most stressful 5 weeks of my recent life. Numerous other events (girlfriend leaving, dog dying) just made those 5 weeks even worse. The sixth time I finally passed, and everything got better.

>>812 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZyTC72iols because well it's the only Touhou replay vid I've watched; I found one of my friends from my childhood after years of no contact to find out he's also into the same things as me. Actually he got me into video games and internets I guess, or maybe it's the path I was destined for anyway.

>814 Do you think your dad's willy's been in your mum's mouth?

814 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7060 17:46

>>813
I doubt it. My father is incredibly mild mannered, and my mother is rather traditionally minded. Nonetheless, it's possible, and I'd really rather not know or think about it any more.

>>815
What is your opinion of Asia Carrera?

815 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7060 22:36

>>814
I like her better than Kobe Tai, but that's not saying a lot.

>>816
I'm looking for a good digital sketchbook. Should I wait for the Surface 8 Pro or get a Galaxy Note 10.1 now?

816 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7061 21:10

>>815
Get the Galaxy because Microsoft are generally bad at things.

>>817
I noticed earlier that the reflection of a flashing light was noticeably delayed in its turning on and off when compared to the original light source. What sort of implications does this have for reality?

817 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7061 22:24

>>816 It all depends on whether or not the phenomenon can be simply explained as a psychological thing. The delay may or may not be all in your head.

>>818 Is there really any way of knowing whether reality determines what one percieves or if perception is actually what makes something real? Alternatively, could perception and reality be partly, mostly, or entirely seperate?

818 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7061 22:53

>>817 Consider reading Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. The accepted answer these days is that reality determines what we perceive, but our perceptions are still just interpretations of that reality. As it stands, reality and perception are only "separate" by the variations we find between different peoples' perceptions of said reality.

>>819 If you had to decide between a life only of things you hate but are really good at and come easily to you, or a life of things you love but cause struggle and frustration, which would you rather take?

819 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7062 04:01

>>818
I thought I wanted the former but I've changed my mind. I'm going for the latter soon, beginning with quitting my current job after my contract ends.

>>820
How stubborn are you?

820 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7062 04:12

>>819 I refuse to answer this question.

>>821 I refuse to ask you a question.

821 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7062 04:46

>>820 I will find a way to make you ask a question.

>>822 would you rather drive a Subaru WRX STI or a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR?

822 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7062 07:47

>>821
Subaru, I guess.

>>823
What's cuter about Tokiko, her hair, or her clothing?

823 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7062 09:54

>>822
Her hair! I can imagine her in other clothing looking as cute, but not with different hair.

>>824
What is your opinion on North Korea's infamous satellite launch?

824 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7062 15:15

>>823
I'm not surprised, nor am I very frightened. They don't have the competency or resources to do any serious damage even if they tried.

>>825
What do you think about the album "Rise and Fall of the Seven Bashful Pillars of VIP-lantus"?

825 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7062 19:53

>>824 I really enjoyed it, especially track 2! I'm new here so I didn't know anything about it (got it from the CTRL+V thread) and just a moment ago discovered there are others.

>>826 Where do I find more information about these albums?

826 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7062 21:45

>>825 I'm not sure about that album specifically, but tanasinn.info has articles related to a number of DQN and VIP related musical projects

>>827 Sometimes I feel like I don't want to be lonely, but I don't actually want to be around anyone I know! Suggestions?

827 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7062 23:20

>>826
What you need, my good sir, is a waifu. I'm not kidding; I felt much the same as you before I found mine.

>>828
Which do you prefer, Christmas or New Year's, and why?

828 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7063 00:23

>>827 Christmas for the free stuff. New Year's for the underlying meaning behind the celebration. All of the bullshit with social obligations on Christmas make it lose in this battle however.

>>829 How do you plan on celebrating, or how did you, celebrate New Year's this year?

829 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7063 01:28

>>828
I enjoyed a dinner with my family at home. I like it this way. Strangely enough my father suggested to order some Japanese cuisine, which was rather unusual, but we all agreed.

I'd like to reply to >>827. It's clearly New Year in Russia because it's like "western" Christmas and New Year merged. Also, December 31 through January 8 are holidays.

Orthodox Christmas is purely a religious feast celebrated on January 7. I suppose, historically atheist commies probably craved to receive their presents earlier.

>>830
How would you describe your New Year celebration?

830 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7063 01:43

>>829 I eat 12 raisins and wish I was dead.

>>831 Why am I alive?

831 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7063 04:09

>>830
Because you haven't committed to suicide

>>832
Do you like maps?

832 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7063 23:14

>>831 I love maps, I used to draw them when I was a wee boy, copying them out of atlases. I was more into flags but I still loved maps. I had this really cool atlas that showed the oceans without any water, so you could see the topography of the sea bed, I wonder what happened to it? I think I was too young to fully appreciate iot, it would be cool to find now

>>833 What do you think of noise artists like Hanatarash, Merzbow, stuff like that? Not necessarily harsh noise, but people in general who decide to spend what little time they have on earth recording extreme niche forms of music?

833 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7066 11:38

>>832
I was going to say something along the lines of I admire them for following what they enjoy and so on, regardless of what other people think or what little effect it might have on the world at large. I was going to say that, but then I read that Hanatarash once cut a dead cat in half with a machete and I find that extremely distasteful.

>>834
What has been your most recent significant failure?

834 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7066 18:07

Doing poorly in my french class. C'est la vie.

>>835
What is your favorite C83 release so far?

835 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7067 02:13

>>834
Picking favorites is too hard! But I've been listening to Kaleidoscope by [Lydia Grave] more than any of the other stuff: http://lydiagrave.net/special/kaleidoscope/
I can't tell why exactly it appeals to me though.

>>836
What would you look like if you turned into a SJIS art character? Bonus points for actually making something, not just describing.

836 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7104 18:01

>>835
I tend to smirk a fair bit, so perhaps a [ for a mouth? I've no idea how to even try to denote my almost rectangular glasses though, so I shan't even try. The rest of my face is disappointingly nondescript. Alas, no bonus points for me.

>>837
What sorts of unusual things do you do when you're alone?

837 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7104 18:35

>>836
Sometimes i take a bath and try to fill an entire half-liter bottle with my farts.

>>838
Is that really so unusual?

838 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7104 19:23

>>837 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uefNcDcRZcE Not really but I'm not sure I understand, how do you know when it's full?

840 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7105 11:28

>>839
Well, they are both classed as jam, so it stands to reason that they should taste similar.

>>841
How do you feel about bodily piercings?

841 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7105 14:27

>>842 what unreleased game would you like completed the most?

842 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7105 15:03

>>841
HacX II looked kind of cool (I don't mean the revamp of the Doom-engine based one... this one was a sequel based on one of the Quake engines.)

>>843
What released, but in a buggy, slipshod state, game would you like to see be fixed up and rereleased?

843 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7105 21:44

>>842
Strike Fighters: Project 1, a 1950s-early 1960s era jet aircraft combat flight sim. I'd also like to see the game get some of the same advances in avionics that existed at the time, like air-to-ground radar modes for dive bombing and radar lead computing G-compensating optical gunsights for gun combat. The game was released in 2002 in a horrible buggy incomplete not-even-beta state. Eventually patches were produced to render it playable, it still requires the player, for example, to dive-bomb World War II style squinting at what amounts to a grease-pencil mark on the cockpit windscreen, and the gunsights aren't much better--the US had G-compensating optical gunsights in service in 1943, and radar lead computing variants were tested in Korea a few years after that.

Yes, I know, a version 2 of the game was released in 2008. But it still isn't, in my opinion, what it could have been.

>>844
Should I eat the leftover chicken or the leftover stirfy for lunch?

844 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7105 22:33

Personally, I'd go for the stir fry.

>>845
How would you react if somebody you know confided in you that they were a necrophiliac?

845 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7106 05:30

>>844
I honestly wouldn't care, I think it would be kind of interesting maybe.

>>846
What should I draw?

846 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7106 11:25

>>845
A little girl wearing a frilly dress. Alternatively, a frilly dress wearing a little girl.

>>847
How much do you like cats?

847 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7106 11:29

>>845 A large metal pipe, with green gunk spewing out the bottom, and in front of it draw a man with breasts for eyes, wearing a smart hat, saying "No." Make the background bright and colourful.

>>847 What kind of porn should I look at today?

Squiggly line. It looks closer to a sine wave than english.

>>853
What did you last play?

853 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7106 23:48

>>852
Ratchet and Clank 2. I'm going for 100%, I reckon I'm at around 90. Not looking forward to farming bolts to get the last couple of weapons or trying to guess where the remaining platinum bolts are, though.

>>854
My legs constantly feel like they need exercise, but I walk to and from university every day (30 minutes each way). I'm reasonably tall (probably too tall for my chair for my legs to bend properly) and I like coffee and sugar. Any tips?

854 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7106 23:49

>>852
Shin Guard. It's a game I made up a few minutes ago. My friend poured some Gatorade from a mostly empty bottle that was on te ground next to where we were sitting in my TI-84's cover, so I said "Wanna play shin guard?" I told him it was a game where I put the case over his shin and hit it until he feels pain and that there's no way to win, only get a high score. He said no so I kept insisting until he gave in. I first kept hitting it with my hand until it stated to hurt so I said "okay level two" then proceeded to hit it with tr calculator itself. I gave up and told him he won, contradicting myself. I checked and the case still had some Gatorade on it so I said that the other shin still needs to go. I did it until it was completely dry then I congratulated him. It wasn't really a game but a way to get the sticky Gatorade off my calculator cover.

>>854
Would you play Shin Guard?

855 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7107 00:40

>>853
Try googling "Charles Atlas Bodybuilding Course.pdf" and get through all that funny motivational blabber to Lesson 10. I think it's the one with exercises for legs.

>>854
As a hitter - YES.

If skiing was the only way of legally getting around, what would you do during summer?

856 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7107 02:03

>>855 I would still drive my car, I would just try to outrun the cops like one of the Dukes of Hazzard.

>>857 If you could turn any vehicle into an RV, what vehicle would you choose?

864 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7119 05:03

>>863
once or twice a day, eh maybe more. I don't post half as often as I check though (maybe).
So around 15x a week.
oh gosh that's way too much isn't it?
I really shouldn't because it's a waste of time...
now I'm doubting myself and worrying that people will judge me and blame me for stuff and make me pay the server bill...

>>865
how do I grow a beard? (I'm already a male)

865 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7119 15:37

>>864 Only 15 times a week and you're worried?? I was going to reply thinking maybe a 100 times a week. To grow a beard I think you just have to wait and see what happens; you may hear people say shave often and it grows back in thicker and quicker but I think this is a myth, it looks darker and seems to grow quicker for some other illusionary reason

>>866 If I'm so brilliant why won't anyone employ me?

866 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7119 16:38

>>865
They're put off by how talented you are, like when a person is so good-looking nobody has the courage to ask him or her out. You should intentionally make lots of mistakes, then everyone will hire you.

>>867
Why?

867 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7119 16:58

Who is your least favourite Renaissance artist?

868 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7119 20:34

>>869
What is your favourite anime opening/ending theme?

869 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7119 22:14

>>868
Hmm, it's a tie between Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica's closing theme, Magia and Death Note's Second closing theme, Zetsubou Billy.

>>870
What month were you born in?

870 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7119 22:37

>>868
I guess my favourite OP is FLCL, because technically it's just a title displayed for a couple of seconds. And it's 4:3. It's that hardcore!

But openings of the original Hokuto no Ken, Renkin San-kyuu Magical Pokaan, Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt and Soul Eater are also worth mentioning.

Trava: Fist Planet has my favourite ending.

>>870
Have you watched REDLINE?

871 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7120 00:26

>>869
January.

>>870
Yes, I liked how it didn't try to get too serious or complex with the backstory, staying focused on the unashamedly over-the-top action, much like Dead Leaves.

>>872
If you could choose a super power, what would you choose? Let's say ridiculous god powers like omnipotence or omniscience are off limits.

Sorry, I haven't written anything in Java for a few years, but I suppose using Enterprise JavaBeans might help.

Raspberry Pi or Arduino?

>>884
Have you ever felt nostalgia for something you were never part of

884 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7122 16:57

>>883
Quite a few times actually. It's mostly about the 70s. I particularly like space exploration, LISP, integrated circuits and music of that age. Maybe something else that I can't remember right off the bat \ besides Vietnam War which is interesting but it isn't something that causes nostalgia.

>>885
What is your hobby? Would you recommend it to anybody else?

885 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7122 21:28

>>884
One of my main hobbies is gardening. I'd recommend it to anyone; it's very satisfying, even if it amounts to nothing more than keeping a few potted plants on your windowsill. It doesn't take too much effort unless you're trying to grow something especially fancy.

>>886

Why am I always tired and unmotivated? I hope it's not depression!

887 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7122 22:45

>>886
It might be stress or avitaminosis! Try doing something that you enjoy. Make sure that you sleep for at least 6 hours every night, and that your diet contains both meat and fresh vegetables. Try taking a multivitamin supplement.

And never eat human flesh because you might get a prion disease.

What would you do if your sleeping schedule suddenly drifted across the globe and then just stopped there with an almost inverted sleep-wake pattern?

888 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7123 02:32

>>887 Whenever that happens I stay up for a night and a day and go to sleep at a normal time. Usually this would happen after a night of taking stimulating substances with friends, but sometimes if I get stuck in a cycle of looking at things on the Internet. To pass the time I do creative things, I take it as an opportunity to work on something that takes a bit more preparation than scribbling in a sketchbook, such as getting paints and canvas out or making big stencils or something, or masturbating

>>897
I'm really getting bored of it. Originally it served as auxiliary to narrative and puzzle and fit well into a lot of adventure stories, but it's been taking more and more of a central role in games lately and the quality of gamer's been decreasing so the other elements are being relegated to the status of cutscene with occasional hand holding.

Why is it still snowing right now if a so-called "global warming" is a problem?

932 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7147 01:23

934 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7147 19:13

>>933
No, that wouldn't be very ladylike!

I'm going to answer >>931 as well, because I think it's a good question.

First of all, global warming is probably a misleading term. Although average global temperatures are increasing, the effects of the gulf stream slowing down or sea level rise or things like that can have the opposite effect locally. Hence why people often call it "climate change" rather than "global warming".

One of the important things to realise is that the climate is a chaotic system. Chaotic systems require two things:

  1. Feedback
  2. Non-linearity

Changes in the climate definitely involve feedback; the weather on one day will affect the weather on the next day, and so on. Climate is also non-linear, as clouds, storms and rainfall all generally either form abundantly or not at all. That is to say, a small change will not necessarily have a small effect. Once you pass a certain threshold in terms of temperature or humidity, a given type of cloud will be able to form, and will probably form in large numbers.

The scary thing about chaotic systems is that they can be incredibly sensitive to change. Consider this diagram:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Chaos_Sensitive_Dependence.svg
Both the black and white balls follow the exact same rules, yet a tiny change in initial position leads to a huge change later on. This has a number of applications to climate change:

  1. It's very difficult to predict, or simulate. Slight inaccuracies in meteorological data can render the entire simulation wrong.
  2. It's very difficult to link cause and effect. This means that people can easily wriggle out of taking responsibility, or try to make the science into a matter of politics.

Expanding on that last point, I've frankly never understood climate change sceptics, or what have you. Whilst the data is, naturally, highly variable, the underlying principles of, for instance, atmospheric carbon dioxide affecting heat absorption, are incredibly transparent.

What this all really means though, >>931, is that the climate's pretty well fucked.

I like to prop my head up pretty high when I sleep, so I like a large and firm cushion for a head pillow. For my back though, I prefer bright and fluffy like a sun-speckled lagoon of childhood dreams in which I can dive and lose myself in the sunny shadows shining through the cracks.

Have you ever tried drawing with a tablet? How do I draw even such a basic thing as sketches and line art? Please teach me!

964 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7223 20:30

>>963
I've never used a tablet, but I've done some sketching with pencil and paper. Furthermore, I've never really had any serious tuition at all, which makes me probably not a very good teacher. The meagre advice I can offer you:

  • Take your time. Draw slowly and carefully, and keep redoing it until you're completely happy with it.
  • I can't stress this enough: have a very clear mental image of what you're going to draw before you start drawing. This makes a huge difference.
  • The internet is full of specialised guides on drawing; make use of them. Especially with drawing living beings, proportion can be difficult to get right, and the guides can be especially useful for that sort of thing.

If you want some advice from people who actually know what they're talking about, try somewhere like ttp://tohno-chan.com/cr/res/412.html.

I thoroughly enjoyed it! The storyline is promising, the characters are cute and novel, and the gameplay is a huge improvement on Ten Desires. The danmaku is very straightforward and not too gimmicky, but it's still only the first three stages. The scoring mechanism is very good; it's intuitive, rewards taking risks, and doesn't cause problems for colourblind people (I'm looking at you, UFO). I'm waiting warmly for the full release.

>>965
I was in a robotics club in elementary school, using those LEGO robotics things and going to competitions and such. I was a master builder, but never bothered much with the programming.
In high school, I was in an after-school art program, doing ceramics and photography. It wasn't really a club, but I wasn't in any clubs in high school, so that's the closest thing to a club I had.

>>967
Have you ever done any ceramics? If so, do you prefer wheel-throwing or hand-building? Electric wheel or kick-wheel? Is this too many questions?

967 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7243 17:55

>>966
I've done a little ceramics, though it's been a while. I definitely prefer hand-building, mostly due to aesthetic preferences. Both methods are nice, but it really depends on the look you're going for. I don't have much experience with the wheel, and I've never used a kick one, so I can't really comment on that. Basically the more hands-on/traditional the methods, the more I tend to enjoy the work.

>>968
No, don't do that, you'll just waste your time. And if it actually works, some people here might become envious.

How to stop worrying?

Tetris.

Or Minecraft is you're feeling VIP.

>>971
Why are you not playing Minecraft on the Buun server right now?

971 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7244 00:21

>>970
Unfortunately, I played Minecraft much earlier than most people and grew tired of it a few years back. I might get back into it eventually.

Without knowing anything about this game or its storyline, why do you think the girl in the menu is holding one of her socks?

973 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7244 08:23

>>971
Same thing happened to me, now I play super hostile and similar difficult adventure maps with my girlfriend to keep it interesting.

>>972
She uses it to masturbate into?

>>975
What are the top 3 things you spend your income on?

974 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7244 15:16

>>973
The idea of a girl masturbating "into" a sock left me with some very odd mental images.

Anyway, >>975, I believe that question is for you.

975 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7244 19:31

>>973
Rent, food and various bills(electricity/internet etc.). Boring necessities aside it would be music, clothing and games/game-related electronics.

>>976
Where would one go about buying a quality sword? Only honorable sword smiths, please, no peasants.

976 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7244 20:01

Johnny Marr's a good smith. Not Morrissey though, he's not a very good smith.

>>977
Recommend me a mediocre toasted snack.

977 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7244 21:13

>>976
Try cinnamon toast: make regular buttered toast and add sugar as well as cinnamon. For an even better recipe try mixing the butter, cinnamon, and sugar beforehand (with some vanilla) and spreading it on bread before toasting in the oven.

>>978
What sort of leg-wear do you prefer and why?

978 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7245 12:00

>>977
Thigh high socks! They're so cute and girly, and of course there's zettai ryouiki.

>>979
What is your preferred variety of biscuit, and what does this choice say about you as a person?

979 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7245 22:24

>>978
Classic digestives, specifically the whole-wheat ones. I guess I'm kind of bland and low-sugar, at least when it comes to my choice in biscuits?

>>980
What is your favorite video game soundtrack?

980 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7245 22:38

>>979
Lately I enjoyed Dustforce and FTL sountracks a lot. I also like music of the original Deus Ex.

981 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7245 22:40

Whoops, forgot my question like I forget to stuff!..

>>982
How to concentrate on a TODO list (and make an efficient one in the first place)?

982 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7246 06:06

>>981
Write down tasks that are specific. Instead of "internet bill," write "call internet company support to ask about bill." Instead of writing "study for test" write "read pages 10-20 of DQN Textbook and complete 5 example problems." Instead of "clean room" write "-pick up books -put papers in file -vacuum" and do one at a time.

Don't try to assign tasks to specific times unless they need to be. I tried this and it failed miserably. Trust in your own ability to complete things at your leisure. Give yourself little rewards for completing tasks. Positive reinforcement is much easier than trying to force yourself to do or not do things.

The hardest part of a todo list is inertia. It easy to keep completing tasks once you get started, but getting started can be very difficult. Instead of vaguely thinking "I should get started on my todo list" focus on a specific physical action like closing your computer and standing up to get a glass of water, from which point you might find you have much more willingness to get started.

>>983
How many true friends do you have?

983 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7246 12:00

>>982
I hang out with a group of seven people, and we're all pretty close. Out of that, I only have two true friends though.

>>984
I don't like pirating anime or games, and then I feel bad for thinking like this since so many people do it anyway. Is this stupid? What are your thoughts?

984 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7246 12:19

>>983
That's not stupid at all; I'm much the same. I just recently started reading Tsukihime, and the English patch has a long disclaimer saying you must agree to use this only with official copies, not with pirated versions, that left a lump in my throat. Pirating anime is somewhat justifiable as the anime companies don't really expect any significant sales outside of Japan anyway. Pirating games really does fuck over companies a lot though, especially the smaller ones.

>>985
If you could have any single superpower, what would it be and how would you use it?

985 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7246 23:50

>>984
I'd like to say the power to add or remove any superpowers at will but I think that breaks the "single superpower" rule. It would be cool to have the matter-altering powers of Dr.Manhattan from Watchmen. I'd use it to make anime figurines and other stupid objects.

>>986
Since there's a 20% chance that you are >>972, why does she have that sock?

986 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7247 00:14

>>985
Spoilers follow; don't read if you've any intention of actually playing the game (and you should, it's good).

It's filled with rocks and soil. She's going to use it as a blackjack in order to beat another girl to death. The murder weapon can then be disassembled, and seeing as she's just a frail little girl with no known motive, she (hopefully) gets away with it.

Spoilers end here.

>>987
What is the most unusual plant or animal you have encountered near where you live?

987 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7247 02:51

>>986
Probably mukade. Google image search with caution. I've seen other miscellaneous weird bugs, but I have no idea what they're called or how to look them up.

>>989
What fruit or vegetable would you choose for a fruit/vegetable battle to the death?

Conditions: It should be considered to be of the average variety, so you can't say "the biggest pumpkin in the world". You can also prepare the fruit/vegetable however you like beforehand, but you can't combine it with other things. And you can only choose one, no sacks of potatoes.

988 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7247 16:42

>>987
I'd probably choose a melon. Even if it cracks before opponent's skull or ribs do, it seeds could make the ground slippery.

>>989
How would you counter a weapon-grade melon?

989 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7247 17:01

>>988
With super secret shadow karate round ninja kick!

>>990
If a wizard was intimidating you by promising to turn you into a vegetable, what would you do?

990 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7247 18:15

>>989
I would call his bluff and snap his stupid staff on my knee then watch him wet his shitty cloak. Fucking wizards ain't shit.

>>991
If you were a firework, what kind would you be?

A dud.

What OS do you use?

992 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7247 20:29

>>991
Windows 7, although I shall be getting a new computer before long and am considering moving over to Linux.

Masturbating most likely. Or threatening to jump out of a skyscraper, just to get free counselling and waste mortals' time.

>>995
I recently played Dust: An Elysian Tail and liked it a lot. Albeit it felt rather easy on normal difficulty. Should I restart it on harder or hardest difficulty or continue as it is?

995 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7248 21:54

By continue as it is do you mean just play it again on normal? Nah try it on a harder difficulty.

>>996 What's the funniest joke you ever heard?

Take the 's' out of 'safe' and the 'f' out of 'way.'

>>997
What was your reaction to this joke?

997 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7249 23:46

>>996
A half minute of silence followed by a light chuckle. This really was the first time I heard that joke.
