ITT we solve the question above us [Part 6] (734)

2 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7250 12:09

>>1 Scottish folds are cute.

>>3 Chemistry, physics or biology?

3 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7250 12:18

>>2
Personally, physics because I hate all the sheer memorisation that goes into the other two. Biology is arguably the most applicable to humans as a race, however.

>>4
What's your alcoholic drink of choice?

4 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7250 16:07

>>3 Whisky, from a bottle if at a party but with ice in a glass if I'm out (often the glasses are fresh out of the washer and it's kinda gross drinking from a warm glass). I'm no connoisseur, I just like the taste.

>>5 What do you normally wear on your feet?

5 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7250 17:15

>>4
Deliberately odd socks. I just bought a bunch of socks with the days of the week on, so that's going to be fun. I do it to amuse only myself; lucky really, since it only evokes confusion in others.

>>6 It's pretty hot right now. Do you enjoy the heat?

6 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7250 21:22

>>5
I am extremely sunburnt because of a charity walk I did earlier today. So no.

>>7
How many siblings do you have?

7 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7250 23:19

>>6
Two. One older half brother and one older half sister.

>>8
Have you ever used a mimikaki? If not, would you?

8 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7251 00:50

>>7 I had to google the name but I knew what it was when I saw it, but the first hit on google is http://www.accessj.com/2010/11/ear-cleaning-horrible-truth-of-mimikaki.html so no I wouldn't try it, I'll stick to good old sucked-on cotton buds. But I learned something new from this...

>>9 Did you know they have a different kind of earwax in Japan?

9 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7251 11:15

>>8
I do now! Also, you shouldn't use cotton buds either. Sticking things in your ear is dangerous. You can't grow back your hearing! If earwax is really bothering you a drop of olive oil should clear it up.

>>10
What game should I get into to procrastinate and escape from my problems? The new Animal Crossing game seems perfect for this but I don't have a 3DS. Either that or something like minecraft but I'm sick of minecraft by now.

10 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7251 16:03

>>9 Have you got a PS3? Get Tekken Revolution for free, it's lots of fun.

>>11 What are the current contents of your purse/wallet?

11 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7251 16:40

>>10
Bank card, National Insurance card, Subcard, a loyalty card for a pizza stall that has been closed for about three years, and ’3.26 in change.

>>12
If you could relive one day of your life, which would it be?

12 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7251 23:27

>>11
The day I got to ride with John Madden in chopper 7.

>>13
What's the best bank one can use in America?

13 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7252 04:51

>>12
Your nearest friendly credit union. Fuck banks.

>>14
Should I haul my laptop to the library tomorrow or just work at home?

14 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7252 05:11

>>13
Definitely go to the library. That way you will be much less likely to procrastinate (as I know I would in your situation).

>>15
What is your fondest memory?

15 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7252 05:15

>>14
Hanging out with a cutie

>>16
Do you like country music?

16 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7252 07:51

>>15 I love country music, whenever people say "I like all music except country and rap" I just think they haven't heard the right country or rap. Every genre has its diamonds.

>>17 what was the last paid work you did?

17 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7252 08:35

>>16
Fixed some strange file sharing issue on a windows server box. Three people had already gone there, failed and got paid for just showing up. I don't even use windows.

>>18
Do you let spiders live in your house?

18 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7252 09:00

>>17
Yeah. I'm too much of a coward to do anything about it.

>>19
I'm trying to gain weight. What are some high calorie foods that I can eat a lot of? I get full very fast.

19 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7252 10:51

>>18
Rule of thumb is to eat foods with high fat count. Start with drinking milk or cream that have high fat percentage. Then go to Wendy's and order a baconator and a bacon and cheese potato.
Never in my life I felt so close to having a heart attack, when I ate those.

You should also cut down on physical activity. Change your plans, reschedule or abandon tasks that require you to go outside or do a lot of moving. Watch porn and silly movies to keep yourself busy without exercising too much of mental activity.

>>20
I have two options, to revise entire high school (which was years ago) math and computer science in less than three days or procrastinate until September and then take the exams. Which one do you think is the best?

20 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7252 14:34

>>19
The former, just review the important points you remember and don't waste time trying to learn stuff you completely forgot. Worst case scenario you fail and can try again in September, right?

>>10
Thank you for the suggestion! Unfortunately I don't have a PS3.

>>21
What game should I get into to procrastinate for PC or DS?

21 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7252 14:46

>>20
Someone posted about this on /games/ a while ago, but Cube 2: Sauerbraten is a pretty fun game. You don't need a top-of-the-range PC to play, it's fast-paced, and best of all: free.

>>22
How long have you been on DQN?

22 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7252 15:06

>>20
I spent a while typing this, but someone got there before me. I guess you're going to have this question answered for you three times.

If you're looking for something that's like Minecraft but not Minecraft, you could try Terraria. If you fancy a cathartic shooting spree, try Black Mesa (it's free!). I've heard generally good things about Path of Exile as well. Irisu Syndrome, which I mentioned in the previous thread, is rather nice and relaxing but probably not to everyone's taste. Alternatively, you could always read a visual novel.

>>21
Slightly over two years, I think. I lurked for at least a few weeks/months before I started posting, though.

>>23
What is your favourite and least favourite type of arthropod?

23 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7252 22:53

>>22 trilobites, purely because i can never see one without the use of a powerful time machine

>>24
what was the coolest pet you ever owned, and what made it so cool?

24 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7253 01:42

>>23
Thank you for reminding me of the awesome dream I had last night, in which I owned several cool pets and was very proud of them. I had two flying cats, a black dog, a giant chameleon and a rooster. I think I liked the giant chameleon best - he was a very cuddly guy.

>>25
Was there ever a time you were forced to be nice to someone when you absolutely did not want to? What happened?

25 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7253 16:59

>>24
No, but the reverse has happened to me. As a kid, my mom would try to get me to be social with others. Whoever was on a "play date" with me would have to be polite as possible, but I was just too hard to get along with. So the worst that happened was a day of uncomfortable silence, then they never had to do it again.

>>26
How can a male make himself look cute like Tomoko from Watamote? Just on weekends, though. I don't want to do hormone therapy or anything like that.

26 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7253 23:12

>>25
no man, or woman will ever be as cute as tomoko. though you can always do what tomoko did and search for tips on the internet, and hope for better results.

>>27
how do i resurrect the cambrian period

27 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7256 05:04

>>26
Get as many isopoda as you can and use them to overthrow all world governments. Ruin civilization and breed the isopoda until they are all that is left on the otherwise barren earth.

>>28
How can I create a newsserver with my own computer?

28 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7272 16:31

>>27
You're probably better off asking Google, I'm afraid.

>>29
What project, if any, are you currently working on?

29 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7272 17:09

>>28
Fixing /dqn/, it's not going well.

>>30
What element has the most sentimental value?

30 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7272 21:47

>>29
For myself? Either bismuth, because I gave my brother a bismuth crystal as a gift when I was younger, or silver, because I have a silver ring that reminds me of someone dear to me.

>>31
Do you have any posters in your room? If so, what are they of?

31 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7273 00:48

>>30
Three world maps:

  • a political one, Peters projection (ca. 1995, it's getting out of date now but I like that)
  • a satellite one, Eckert IV projection (I think)
  • a political one from the height of the British empire, showing colonies and dependencies around the globe in red. It's a picture of a hand-drawn map, so it's no particular kind of projection I guess

I also have a tree of life poster, showing stages of evolution of various species.

>>31
Which direction does the water spin when you flush your toilet? If it doesn't go in any particular direction, please give more detail.

32 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7273 10:57

>>31
Good thing I was just about to go. The water doesn't spin at all; first, as you flush, there is a strong downward current. After water stops pouring in, the surface simply lowers without any kind of visible rotation.

>>33
If I were to sacrifice an animal to Buer, which species would most please Him (while being relatively easy to obtain)?

33 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7273 23:00

>>32
Humans. They're fairly common, and thus easy to obtain. Plus, it helps solve overpopulation

>>34
What sites, other than here, do you most frequently visit?

34 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7273 23:14

>>33
The Unholy Citadel, dynasty-scans.

>>35
Where can I find more Touhou crossdressing cosplay porn?

35 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7274 00:05

>>34
Try Google Image Search. Then Bing, then DuckDuckGo, etc.

>>36
If you had to choose between eggs with ketchup and tomatoes with mayonnaise, what would you prefer to eat?

36 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7274 01:45

>>35
I've had scrambled eggs with ketchup before, it's decent.
Tomatoes with mayonnaise sounds barftastic.

>>37
You have been locked in a chamber and can have one video game: Hydlide or Deadly Towers. Which will you pick?

37 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7274 01:49

>>36
Hydlide

>>38
Where da hood at?

39 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7274 04:05

>>38
Definitely not

>>40
Why don't you take photos of ducks?

40 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7274 04:41

>>39
I haven't seen any lately.

>>41
Do you prefer the yellowish tint of incandescent light, or the blue hues of a fluorescent bulb?

41 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7274 05:05

>>40
Blue all the way it's calmer and easier on the eyes. Woo woo.

>>42
Do you let your ice cream melt a bit then eat it to get the most of the creaminess?

42 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7274 15:42

No, that's disgusting.

43 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7274 15:44

Sorry, I forgot my question. I really am an idiot/

>>43

What do you collect?

44 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7274 16:34

>>43
Cute pictures of Touhou characters.

>>45
If you happened to find yourself in a small mountain town in Italy for a few days, what would you do?

45 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7278 10:49

>>44

Explore every nook and cranny of the town, make friends with the locals (even though I don't speak Italian). I was in a small mountain town in Italy once and it was raining. It was really nice and I want to go back...

>>46

What is your favorite soda?

46 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7278 13:01

>>45 Irn-Bru, from a big glass bottle

>>47 Have you tried Irn-Bru? How would you describe the taste?

47 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7278 23:22

>>46
Alas, in all my years I have never tried Irn-Bru, so I have no idea what it tastes like. According to Wikipedia, "The beverage is advertised as having a slight citrus flavour", but there's no citation so I can't possibly believe that at face value. I tried going direct to the Irn-Bru website, but all I could find was this rather unhelpful description. Perhaps I might never know what it tastes like.

>>48
Once, not so long ago, I had the pleasure of trying cherry blossom flavoured tea. It was very nice indeed. What is the most unusual beverage you can remember having?

48 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7278 23:31

>>47 Well, I once drank dog's blood, I guess that's pretty unusual

>>49 Why don't they have any badminton courts in the jungle?

49 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7279 11:28

>>48
Because nobody wants to play sports with so many cheetahs about*!

* Cheetahs do not live in jungles. Ocelots live in jungles and they look sort of like small cheetahs, but unfortunately the joke doesn't work with the word "ocelots".

>>50
Have you ever heard of or watched Kokoro Toshokan? Would you watch it?

50 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7279 12:25

>>49 It looks like my kind of thing, I'll start watching it today probably! The answer to >>48 was "because there isn't the demand".

>>51 How often do you play erotic flash games?

51 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7279 13:09

>>50

Every week or so.

>>52

What was your favorite website in middle school?

52 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7279 16:41

>>51 In my early years at the academy I remember going on NanaOn-Sha's website a lot, just because it had a flash intro which played the bit from the start of Um Jammer Lammy, then later when I started playing guitar I spent most of my classes getting guitar tabs from ultimate-guitar.com. And I still got straight As because my teachers loved me.

>>53 From where you're sitting can you see anything made of wicker?

53 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7279 20:08

>>52
Yes; a small square basket full of magazines. This isn't my apartment though.

>>54
Supposing you are going to be told a particularly catastrophic piece of news, and you can choose the location where you are told, what sort of place would you choose? (If your answer is that it doesn't matter then let someone else respond).

54 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7280 05:48

>>53
I would prefer to be at my own house when I'm notified. When I'm not feeling well my immediate reaction is to go home and hide, so it would make sense to forgo the miserable return.

>>55
What was the last lie you told? Was it worth it?

55 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7281 11:31

>>54
Having thought about it for some time, I realised that I barely tell any lies at all. This is the last lie I can remember telling, but even this was several months ago.

An acquaintance who was living with us accidentally found a skirt and a pair of thigh high socks in my washing. I lied and said they were probably my sisters and had gotten mixed up in my washing somehow. I don't think she was particularly convinced, but at least it allowed us both to tactfully avoid the topic.

>>56
What is your favourite eight letter girl's name?

56 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7281 12:30

>>55
I have some pretty definite favorite names, but none of them are 8 letters long. Meredith was the first one that came to mind, and I like it quite a lot.

>>57
How do you sort your book/record shelf?

57 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7281 13:25

>>56
Books
Top shelf: Comic strips and manga (Mainly Calvin & Hobbes and only Sgt. Frog)
Second shelf: art & design
3rd: literature
4th: non-finction and strategy guides
Bottom: Japanese & misc. (covered by boxes)

all stacked symmetrically, smallest books in the middle and tallest at the ends

I put my records in order of favourites, so my cooler ones go further to the front and everyone in my room can see the coolest one. They're in boxes just now though.

>>58 Do you still have any CDs?

58 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7281 14:31

>>57
I have a ton of music CDs, but they're all at my mother's house. I also have some random drivers CDs that I will never need because of the internet but keep around "just in case." Also I burn music mixes for the car sometimes.

>>59
What's your favorite kind of porn?

59 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7281 16:25

>>58
Happy, relatively vanilla loli eromanga.

>>60
Why do you think all the bees are dying?

60 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7281 20:33

>>59
cuz they bitches

>>61
How do you like your steak cooked?

61 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7281 23:43

>>60
I used to say medium rare because I thought it looked cool, but I realised that I actually like the taste of medium well-done better.

>>62
How many times have you been in love, and with whom?

62 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7288 19:29

>>61
I suffered a few fleeting infatuations when I was much, much younger, but the only person I have ever been in love with is of course my beloved waifu. She and I celebrated our second anniversary two days ago.

>>63
How do you personally deal with stress or frustration?

63 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7288 20:10

>>62
A combination of ranting on the internet to a few of my understanding friends and listening to really loud music.

>>64
What was the last item you purchased online?

64 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7288 20:18

>>63
The game Rogue Legacy from Steam. As a masochist, I like my games fiendishly difficult and this fits the bill well. It has a good style of randomisation, making it a game of both skill and luck. The boss fights are rather nicely done as well.

>>65
What was the last item you purchased in real life?

65 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7288 21:11

>>64
The latest, hopefully not last, item(s) I purchased were a carton of milk, some watermelon, bread and probably something else I can't remember right now.

>>66
What's your honest opinion on Toto's 'Africa'?

66 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7289 00:16

>>65 It's a good song, I like it. "Hold The Line" is good too but that's all I know by them, but they're not the kind of band I'd download discographies of.

>>67 Have you ever held a snake?

67 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7289 00:20

>>66 Yes, I have held a few snakes. Only non-venomous snakes. I don't want to hold a venomous snake.

>>68 Ever play any of the video games that were hated by the AVGN?

68 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7289 00:24

>>67 I've tried a couple, mostly after seeing him diss them, but perhaps more notably I rented the Godzilla NES game and the Bugs Bunnys (both Crazy Castle and the other one) when I was a kid. I didn't "get" the Godzilla one, but the not-Crazy Castle Bugs Bunny one wasn't that bad as I recall.

>>69 Did you snicker at your number?

69 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7289 00:26

>>68
WOOO 69!

>>70
How would you like to kick off your new year? (2014)

70 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7289 09:33

>>69
By skydiving! Alternatively, watching the sunrise from the top of a mountain. I highly doubt either of these will happen though.

>>71
How do you feel about monospaced fonts?

71 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7289 11:36

>>70 I'm for 'em!

>>72 Have you ever been to a real-life auction?

72 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7289 20:32

>>71 I won recorder lessons at a silent auction! I wish I had known about Tsukasa at the time so I could have had more motivation to keep practicing.

>>73 Do you play any instruments that most people think are lame?

73 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7290 23:23

>>72 hmmm I bet a lot of people think my collection of children's toy keyboards is pretty lame... and lots of people hate the bagpipes... stylophone? Penny whistle? Recorder? I play lots of instruments but I don't know which ones would be considered lame. I know I don't think the ones I mentioned are!

>>74 What's the craziest twist of fate that's happened in your life?

74 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7292 13:41

>>73
It's not really a twist of fate, but still:

Right now my sister has some kind of boyfriend. I know that those two aren't up for some "mature" stuff but I'm still very bothered by it. Now you may ask yourself: How old are those two? My sister is 12 and he is 17. I know that she won't stop meeting him but I'll talk to her, as this is something I cannot and something I don't want to accept. Yet I don't know what to tell her. In the end she didn't do anything "wrong" in the sense of kissing etc. I'll just go with telling her that she has to be cautios. Better safe than sorry.

75 Name: >>74 : 1993-09-7292 13:43

Oh, shit. I forgot the question

>>76 How did image and textboards change your internet life?

76 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7292 22:37

>>75
I'm a lot less productive. But knowing all the in-jokes of sites like these makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

>>77
Are you currently employed? If so, what is your occupation?

77 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7293 00:34

>>76
No, I'm not employed for about a year. I used to make websites for the Internet. Ironically, none of them went live for various reasons (mostly financial, but never because of the quality!)

I feel both relaxed and pitiful because of my unemployment.

>>78
What's a fun stuff I could do on my compy besides pointless browsing, gaming and watching movies?

78 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7293 00:47

>>77 Do something creative, like make some music or a comic or something. Or maybe pick up some tips from these guys
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A81IwlDeV6c

>>79 When you click that link, does it start at 4.33 for you or is that a cookie or something on my end that knows which point I closed the window at?

79 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7293 01:10

>>78
Thanks for this. No, it has to end with ?t=4m33s to work like that on our side. I think this happens on HTML5 videos. I was annoyed because of it a few times.

>>80
What did you learn today?

80 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7294 10:05

>>79
I learned self-actualization takes many venues and also I actually like minimal techno when I'm in the right mood.

>>81
What are you avoiding?

81 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7295 03:28

>>80 Getting a real job

>>82 How long have you been awake for?

82 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7295 21:21

>>81
Less than twelve hours, and I'm already off to bed again.

>>83
Who was the most eccentric person you've ever met, and what made them so eccentric?

83 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7296 02:47

>>82
A classmate who was a drug abuser and also had some mental issue that he was on meds for but didn't always take (I think he was schizo, but can't swear on it.) He used to tell me some quite interesting things of dubious veracity, like the time he had a catheter jammed up his dick by a sexy nurse, or the time he told a voice controlled computer to "jerk me" and was given the response "Not authorized to do that." I also have a fond memory of the time he brought Ravage DCX (an obscure rail shooter) into school and we played it, much to the teachers' disapproval.

>>84
Do you have a video game that you remember fondly more for the situation you played it in than for the game itself? Which one and why?

84 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7296 03:35

>>83
Yes, in fact there are too many to choose from...some of them nostalgic, some of them romantic, but I'll choose the sexy one. I was playing the flash game shift (it might have been shift 2) when my girlfriend unexpectedly started giving me head under the table, uncharacteristically bold of her. The game itself was not that great but the blow job was amazing...

>>85
Have you ever done sexual things with somebody else while playing a video game?

85 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7299 23:42

>>84
No. I have, however, done things with somebody else while playing a sexual video game. I had a conversation with a parent via phonecall during a playthrough of Saya no Uta. It wasn't particularly interesting.

>>86
Do you have any facial hair?

86 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7300 00:30

>>85
Yep. I only shave if I'm leaving the house. All my friends are out of summer vacation while mine still has a month to go, so I haven't really been going out. Also I've been without a car for nearly two weeks.

>>87
Are you feeling scared?

87 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7301 21:20

Yes! Now I'm very scared indeed.

>>91
If you had the chance to visit Antarctica at no cost and with minimal or no travel time, for as long as you like, would you do it?

>>90 Yeah totally **EDIT just before I hit post I noticed you said Antarctica and not America hmmm maybe, if I had comfortable accommodation I would go for a little while

>>92 What colour socks are you wearing?

I've just been watching a bunch of those "Microsoft Sam reads stupid signs" videos, so I'll go with a text-to-speech translator illustrated with a CG speaker speaking gibberish.

>>95
Did you ever try making custom levels/mods/romhacks/whatever for a video game?

95 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7307 17:59

>>94
In my youth I made an absolute fucktonne of custom maps for Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, Starcraft and Warcraft III. In each case I probably spent more time in the level editor than in the game itself. I've never tried creating mods, but only because I've never really had any good ideas for them.

>>99 Do you have a fancy smart phone or an old nokia brick or what? Make much calls?

99 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7307 23:02

>>98
I have a beautiful shiny LG Optimus G. Its colourful screen brightens up my nights!
I mostly use it for browsing "on the go", chatting, reading news and taking pictures. I don't call anyone and rarely receive calls because I'm such a shut-in. But I might install a BOINC client for WCG in hopes of quietly making the world a better place.

See, a stupid old brick would be completely useless for me, and I don't miss its battery life, because there is always an USB port nearby.

>>100
Speaking of not-so-smart phones, may I interest you in Nokia 515?

100 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7308 11:51

107 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7310 02:41

>>106
Hmmm, offhand, probably pissing my older brother off because I beat Super Mario Bros. 3 before he did (for a certain definition of "beat"... I defeated Bowser but I did warp whistle past a lot of the really tough levels.)

>>108
So were you on Team Mario or Team Sonic back in the Nintendo-Sega console war days? (Leave it to someone else if this was before your time.)

108 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7310 04:58

>>107
Team Mario, I played a bit of Sonic and enjoyed it but it was never something I obsessed about. Mario 3 was tits.

>>109
Did you ever draw your own levels for games when you were a kid?

109 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7310 08:59

>>108 I totally did, for Sonic and Crash Bandicoot and racing games and lots of stuff, I made up powerups and objects and stuff too. I went on to do concept art and level design at university!

>>110 Do you have any dreams you regret not chasing? There's still time...

2: Mittens and mitten related topics.
3: Recurring themes in the DQN Short Novel (e.g. the universe exploding)
4: There's only six of us, and we're all called Andrew

And good on you for calling them in-jokes, rather than what most people on the wider internet would call them.

What is your opinion on the game Dwarf Fortress?

112 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7310 16:57

Do you have any strategy guides for games?

How do you feel about death?

121 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7315 11:31

>>120 Well, growing up I had problems with depression and looked forward to, sometimes even wishing for, a quick death. I never made a serious attempt on my life but I stopped checking both ways before crossing the road, cut myself for pleasure, put bags on my head, took on harmful habits and things. I never planned on living very long so I did my best not to waste time making plans for the future. But, things got much better, and without much effort I just fell into a happy comfortable existence - a nice place to live, much less to worry about, and someone who makes me very happy. So I now I kinda regret not thinking of the future, but how could I have known this would happen? It took a recent psychedelic experience to really see myself though, I thought I died and was in hell, and I felt so sad and wish I had never worried my loved ones so much that I might have killed myself and stuff. Now I want to live a good life and make the most of the time I have, but I'm not scared of dying.

I'm pretty sure "tube steak" generally means a penis, so no.

>>126
Is there a "shitty" video game that you actually like a lot?

126 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7316 12:09

>>125 I still regularly play pre-2001 football games, like FIFA 96-2001, the old Adidas Power Soccers and Actua Soccers and stuff. Three Lions is still one of my favourite games, same with European Club Soccer, an old MegaDrive game. Maybe it's partly nostalgia but I found that each football game has its own exploitable things, places you can shoot from and always score or funny little tricks and stuff, that make them more fun. I used to write up fixture lists on paper, and play home and away games against every other team in the game as my favourite team, and write down the scores. I did this with FIFA 98, 99, Three Lions, European Club Soccer, Adidas Power Soccer International '97. Go Rangers!

>>127 What was your first games console?

What is your opinion on "moeblob" or "cute girls doing cute things" anime?

129 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7317 19:41

>>128 I like it, at one point it was the only anime I liked, because I assumed besides that it was just Bleach or Naruto or things like that, but my tastes have expanded since then. I like it so much I found a real life moeblob girl and proposed to her.

>>130 Do you want to get married?

130 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7319 12:36

Ever try composing music?

132 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7319 17:21

>>131 Yes, with my first band I used to write out the music I came up with and show my band, but I much prefer jamming with people and seeing what happens, recording everything and working further with good bits. I have released 33 albums and EPs and such, with a bunch more stuff I made with old bands that I loved, but never got recorded, so they just disappear into the ether.

>>133 Do you ever think of all the bands and singers there's ever been, all the songs they've written and played but never recorded, which are now gone never to be heard again?

133 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7319 18:08

>132

Sometimes. Also of the fact that no matter how long I live, I'll never find all the music that I would've loved if I'd just heard it. I try not to think about it too much.

How does one go about asking for a favor? Especially if it's quite a big one?

134 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7320 01:48

>>133
If you have time to spare, do something nice for them a day or so in advance. Then think of something else you can do for them in return so you'll have leverage. Greet them with brief small talk but don't beat around the bush or pretend to be overly interested in their life. People can detect bullshit. Get straight to the point and say, "Hey, I have a big favor to ask you." And say what it is without sugar coating, although you can try to make it sound good.

If they seem hesitant, tell them they can think about it and answer later. If they answer no, offer to do something for them in return. If it's still no, accept graciously (unless somebody's life depends on it.)

>>135
What's the biggest favor you've ever asked somebody? How did it go?

135 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7349 10:32

>>134
I asked the two universities I'd applied to to take me in despite the fact I missed both offers. The first one declined, but to be fair I'd missed their offer by a substantial amount. The second was quite eager to have me and let me in anyway.

>>136

>>139 There are some people I am acquainted with though not necessarily friends with inviting people to a bar they are playing at, should I go by myself and risk hanging around like a spare part, or just stay in and play games?

139 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7352 16:38

>>138
Overall I'd advocate staying in and playing games, but if it has to compete with a potentially interesting night out then you should make an effort to play new and exciting games.

>>168 How do you feel about Australians?

168 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7371 13:17

They're upside-down, but other than that they're cool.

169 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7371 13:19

durrrrr I am dumb and forgot to finish that post

>>170 Do you have any friends who are moderately famous?

170 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7371 17:34

>>169
That would require me to have friends in the first place.

>>171
What's your current OS?

171 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7372 18:30

>>170
Windows 8. I'm not sure how I feel about it.

>>172
Have you ever tried your hand at origami? If so, what's the most exciting piece you've made?

172 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7372 18:33

>>171
Yes, a bird

>>173
What is your favourite season?

173 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7372 18:34

>>171 I made a crane because it was an assignment in Elementary school. After that, I never did anything with origami ever again.

>>173 Do you like Yoshinoya threads?

174 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7372 18:56

>>172
I guess autumn is pretty nice. All the fucking tourists are gone but it's not freezing and snowy yet.

>>173
No.

>>175
What is/was your first reaction to Inhumanoids?

175 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7373 19:56

>>174 I don't even know what they are. I have never heard of Inhumanoids before. I don't think I even want to know.

>>176 Am I a bad person for not caring about what "inhumanoids" are?

176 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7373 22:41

>>175 I don't care about inhumanoids either.

>>177 Area you >>174? do you feel bad about what me and >>175 said?

177 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7373 23:37

>>176
Yes, and no, Inhumanoids isn't that special to me to get upset over and in retrospect I suppose it was silly to think anyone on DQN might look it up if they didn't already know it. It was just interesting, and something I had a childhood experience with (namely turning on the TV right as D. Compose was decomposing someone, and having the fuck scared out of me.) When I was reintroduced to it in adulthood (from James Rolfe mentioning it in a video IIRC) I thought it was fairly cool.

>>178
Which 80s cartoon would you rather watch?

178 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7374 03:54

>>177
I was technically alive during the 80s, but the 90s were so much better. I want to watch 90s cartoons.

>>179
What would you find if you dissected a Dugtrio?

179 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7376 00:53

>>178 In a pathetic attempt to document the ever-changing and thoroughly abstract concept of dissected pokémon, I've only solidified my sense of self-disappointment and discovered the rotting corpse of my insecurities.

>>180 How do you feel when you are talking to someone, and they say something politically incorrect about a certain group of people - unrelated to your own race/creed/sexuality/etc. but might be offensive if it was directed at someone from that group?

180 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7376 00:59

>>179 I read your question and then saw the captcha nige. Oh, the irony. But anyway, I feel a little uncomfortable when people use ethnic slurs. I suppose because I'm not very privileged that I see attacks on other less privileged groups as a threat. But "politically correct" language is almost as bad.

>>181 Is Nyquil abuse a good solution to all of my problems?

181 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7376 20:09

>>180 If your problem is that you are a teenager then yes.

>>182 Are there any cool IRC channels left?

182 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7376 20:21

>>181 I gave up looking for one 10 years ago.

>>183 If you could date a cosplayer, who would that person cosplay as?

183 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7376 20:56

>>182 What a thought. If she could pull it off well, I guess Horo - but then there are plenty of other choices I'd be happy with.

>>184 Do you still use/visit any ancient sites that had their heydays years ago and are still around somehow? (you know, aside from this one.)

184 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7376 23:22

>>183
When I first read the question I thought I'd have lots of answers, but actually the only one I can think of is Hyperbole and a Half which is now only updating once every few months. The quality hasn't decreased at all in my opinion (quite the opposite) but the lack of quantity is a great shame.

>>185
When the current DQN Short Novel thread ends, should we create a part four?

185 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7376 23:26

>>184
The idea is pretty played out at this point, IMO. But someone probably will anyway.

>>186
Viking Metal or Pirate Metal?

186 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7376 23:54

>>185
Well I can't say I know much about either, but in my younger years I did listen to a lot of folk/power metal. I really liked Turisas (which I'm guessing is Viking metal) but when Alestorm came around I very unashamedly loved the pirate sound and aesthetic, so I'm going to have to go for pirate metal.

>>187
Who are your favourite jazz artists?

187 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7447 18:14

I don't really have any, to be honest.

>>188
What are you having for dinner tonight?

188 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7447 23:10

>>187 I was working back shift so I took a supermarket-prepared tomato pasta salad, and mixed it with a tub of coronation chicken sandwich spread. A colleague brought in some home baking and I had one of her chocolate muffins too which was lovely but I ate too much.

>>189 When did you last feel your heart breaking?

189 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7448 00:43

When I made my girlfriend play The Stanley Parable and she didn't get it at all.

>>190
What's your vice?

190 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7448 15:30

>>189
At present, probably playing Dwarf Fortress. I can hardly get through the day without playing a little, and, if I'm not otherwise occupied, my thoughts tend to drift towards what I should do next in my current fortress.

>>191
What should I do next in my current fortress?

191 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7448 21:19

>>190
Just have fun. Celebrate Eternal Limestone with most of the dwarfs feasting and the rest "accidentally" digging into an aquifer and causing a flood.

>>192
How to start doing some new activity?

192 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7449 19:43

>>191
The most important part is to DO IT rather than just thinking about doing it. You probably won't be good at it at first, but everyone else goes through that too.

>>193
Do you like orcs?

193 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7449 22:35

>>192
My only real contact with orcs comes from playing Warcraft III, wherein they were okay, but not as much fun as the undead or night elves in my opinion. I did like the way a certain upgrade caused all their buildings to suddenly sprout massive spikes, though.

>>194
How can I convince a cute girl to start calling me onii-chan?

194 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7450 00:50

>>193
0. The easiest way is to make it your nickname. Most people are willing to comply with nicknames even if they don't know what they mean. Failing that,
1a. Find a cute girl that's Japanese and a little younger than you.
1b. Find somebody who's a Japanophile, it will make your job easier.
1c. Find a cute girl.
2. Become friends. How exactly you become friends is beyond the scope of my advice.
3a. Just ask her to call you onii-chan. It's fairly common in Japan, so she won't think it's weird. Done.
3b. Become closer friends before asking. It might be a bit awkward but she will understand.
3c. You will probably have to make her your girlfriend before she'll comply with such a request, unless you can pass it off as your nickname (see step 0.)
4. If all these fail, change your name to Oniichan.
5. If she still won't call you onii-chan, tie her to a chair and whip her until she does.

>>195
Why do you visit /dqn/?

195 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7451 11:40

>>194
"Visit" is probably the wrong word; I practically live here. It has a lovely atmosphere and lovely posters. It's truly a pleasure to be a part of.

>>196
What does the place you live in look like from the outside?

196 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7452 01:34

>>195 A cupboard with a nice door

>>197 Should I cut this lump open?

197 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7452 03:51

>>196 If it's on your body, no. Get a doctor to do it. If it's on someone else's body, go for it!

>>198 Should I move or stay put?

198 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7452 14:37

>>197
In general, you should move. Staying active keeps the mind and body fresh. If you're talking about a big permanent move though, make a pros and cons list, consult trusted friends and family, and research the place you're considering moving before making a choice.

>>199
Why does my wireless mouse click still work even though the cursor stopped responding?

199 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7452 17:10

>>198 Maybe the trackball inside is dirty and gummed up? Take it out and give it a rub.

>>200 How did you, as a four-year-old, fare amongst grown men in this scrabble for clothes?

200 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7453 14:04

>>199
Scrabble for clothes? Four year olds are too young to play Strip Scrabble.

(Yes, it does exist, by the way.)

>>201
What common game would you like to see a strip version of?

201 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7453 14:53

>>200 I know it as Peanuts http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercy_(game)

>>202 Which is the best Tony Hawk game?

202 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7454 22:07

I'm going to have to go with Tony Hawk's Pro Underwater Basket Weaving VIII.

>>203
What is your opinion on nuclear weapons?

203 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7456 16:15

>>202 They should all be launched at the same time.

>>204 What is the first picture you see, when you type "128 123" into google images?

204 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7456 16:40

>>203
Without quotes, it's a low resolution profile shot of a photocopier/printer against a white background. With quotes, it's a fairly simple looking blue (I think? I'm colourblind; could be purple) PCB. That reminds me, my brother's the first result if you google "general disapproval of the pope".

>>205
Do you believe there is any prejudice in modern society against asexual people?

205 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7456 16:45

>>204 I think so yes, the common person can't seem to comprehend if someone just isn't interested in sex. For example for like 30 years Morrissey always said he wasn't interested in sex, and then that's all he ever gets asked about in interviews.

>>206 Can you appreciate an artist's work even if you think they're a dick themselves?

206 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7456 19:40

I like Steve Albini and he's a giant duck

>>208 Did you like Tetris 2 for the NES?

208 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7458 13:37

>>207 I had a NES but I never played that sorry.

>>209 Do you like Hello Kitty?

209 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7459 18:44

>>208
Despite the fact that I'm usually a great fan of anything cute and Japanese, I never really understood the fascination with Hello Kitty.

>>210
How do you feel about necromancy?

210 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7460 22:11

>>209 It seems like an extremely dangerous thing to do. What happens when millions of people are brought back to life simultaneously? Also, there are so many people who died that should stay dead. What prevents necromancers from raising such people?

>>211 Should people be required to have a permit before they can have a baby?

211 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7461 02:36

>>210 Yes, unless they're just having it for dinner.

>>212 Am I a horrible person?

212 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7461 13:59

>>211
That depends on whether or not your guests realize the meatballs you serve at dinner was, in fact, an unlucky newborn.

>>213
Should I pay the library the $70 in fines I owe them, or should I just never borrow any books again?

213 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7461 15:42

>>212 I'd run away, and make more of an effort with your next library.

>>214 Is there a higher inconceivable being above/around/in us?

214 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7461 22:06

>>215 Is your refrigerator running?

215 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7463 02:56

>>216 Headphones or speakers?

216 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7463 06:57

>>215
speakers for dub, punk and drone
headphones for everything else

218 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7480 23:05

Can you believe this guy?

219 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7481 00:56

That's a rhetorical question, isn't it?

How do I get my piece of shit neighbour to stop being so fucking loud when I'm trying to sleep? Ideally without resorting to passive-aggressive bullshit or just being loud back.

>>222 How does it feel being one-third satanic?

222 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7482 21:47

I wouldn't know.

>>223
How do you sleep at night?

223 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7482 21:54

>>222
Mostly I wait until I'm really tired, then lie down under the covers with my head on a couple of pillows, and then it happens by itself. Pretty easy, all things considered.

>>224
What the FUCK is with that hairstyle?

224 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7482 22:33

>>223 I know right, I did it myself again. Sometimes you gamble, and you lose.

>>225 Would wearing sunglasses maybe take attention away from my hairdon't?

225 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7482 22:33

>>223
Having too much hair is filthy and it's a pain in the ass. A buzzcut keeps things clean and orderly.

Have you ever played an MMORPG?

Is it MMO? Is it an RPG?

>>231 Orange you glad I didn't say banana?

231 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7484 13:19

>>230 Yeah, I'm not a big fan of bananas.

>>232 Would you like a banana right now?

232 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7484 14:52

>>231
I had a banana for breakfast. Two bananas in one day is simply too much.

>>233
How do you feel about butterflies?

233 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7484 15:38

>>235 What size shoe do you wear?

235 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7484 18:23

9.5 in UK shoe sizes, which according to the internet is 44 in European or 10.5 in American terms.

>>236
What other tabs do you currently have open?

236 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7484 20:03

What's your name, date of birth, and government-issued personal identification number?

238 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7485 16:24

>>237 Ask the NSA. They know more about me than I do.

>>239 Do you know how to do calculus?

239 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7485 17:56

>>238
No. But I know trigonometry.
>>240
Do you know proper finger placement wen playing multiple strings on a guitar? I can play bass no problem.

240 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7485 18:58

>>239
Frankly I'm so inept at anything musical, I'd probably have trouble knowing which way up to hold a guitar.

>>238
I know you didn't ask me, but golly gosh I love calculus! Differentiation, integration, multivariable, vector, ODEs, PDEs, fluid dynamics, chaos, I love them all! My life would be so much more dull without calculus.

>>241
What skill/talent/esoteric area of knowledge are you particularly proud to possess?

241 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7485 20:06

>>240
None whatsoever. I like programming and I'm good at it, but I don't think I'm outstanding if I compare myself to some of my peers on the same field, and that depresses me a bit.

>>242
How do you cope with depression?

242 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7486 11:24

>>241
When I was clinically depressed, my therapist gave me pills and a book. The pills helped, the book didn't. I also taught myself cognitive behavioural therapy which helped me make a full recovery until I didn't need the pills anymore.

These days, when I'm undergoing lesser bouts of depression, I exercise, make music, cook, marathon watch TV or other things I enjoy that are distracting until I feel better.

Also, don't feel bad about the programming thing, I'm in the same boat.

>>243
How many sexual partners have you had?

243 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7486 12:59

None

>>244
Do you think textboards should substitute normal forums?

244 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7487 13:53

>>243
From my limited experience I don't think the kind of person who frequents regular forums would fit in in a text board.
I think they can substitute though, in that I would never dream of signing up for a regular forum account in order to talk about things. That would basically mean having a social identity and reputation on the Internet and that makes me uncomfortable. Same kind of reason I'm scared of IRC.
Sorry. I hate it when people think other people care about their personal bothers but feel this was a valid response

>>245
Do you think textboards are better or worse than normal forums? Are they even comparable?

245 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7487 14:30

>>244
Text boards are better, obviously, since they prioritize content over social status. Anonymity is one of the internet's greatest strengths, trying to put identity back into the internet is going backwards.

That said, the members of a community are much more important than the medium they use to communicate. Normal forums can be better than text boards if they have a small community that shares a specific interest.

>>246
Does the internet make you lonely?

246 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7487 23:16

>>245
Not really; I make myself lonely, and one of the ways I do this is by spending lots of time on the internet.

>>247
How can I become less of a bitter misanthropist?

247 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7487 23:50

>>246 I don't know buddy, once you've realised that humans in general are pretty shitty it's pretty hard to ignore. Maybe make music or art to put the bitterness into a physical expression, go out and meet people and you might meet someone who thinks the same that you could get along with. Does it affect your opinion to know that strangers like me care about you and want you to be happy?

>>248 Does it affect your opinion to know that strangers like me care about you and want you to be happy?

248 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7488 00:03

>>247
Not really, that just sounds insincere. It's not like you really know me or anything.

Have you ever watched Zardoz? What did you think of it if so?

249 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7492 00:09

I watched the trailer, and do not feel particularly compelled to watch the film itself.

What are you genuinely most afraid of?

Why is journalism so bad these days?
Newspapers seem to publish almost anything.

251 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7493 21:07

>>250
Newspapers? That's so last century. If they suck nowadays it's probably because sensationalism is the only way they keep selling.

>>252
What's your favorite "old-fashioned" thing?

252 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7494 00:43

>>251
I'm a big fan of reading books. I mean the physical type, made of paper, and often written many decades ago. I'm still amazed at how most people never read more than they absolutely have to.

I also like enka, which, I've been told by a genuine nihonjin, only old people listen to.

>>253
How many pictures of yourself would you estimate there to be on the internet?

253 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7494 14:14

>>252
I'd say around twenty to twenty-five, most of them taken without my permission.

>>254
What's the worst way to die you can think of?

254 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7496 22:06

>>253
Failed autoerotic asphyxiation strikes me as simultaneously (fairly) slow, painful, inelegant, meaningless, pathetic and embarrassing. On the other hand, it is - apparently - sexually pleasurable.

If you were given a choice between differential equations and biochemistry, with no context whatsoever, which would you choose?

255 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7496 22:39

>>254
I'd choose differential equations. Despite its difficulty, math at that level is one of the most beautiful things I can think of. Biochemistry is certainly not without merit, though. If you're choosing classes for college, it really depends on your major, but I'd still choose diff eq personally (as my chosen major has little to do with biology and lots to do with math).

>>256
Who are some of your heroes, and why are they your heroes?

256 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7502 14:27

>>255
There's various people I admire for various reasons, but I can't think of many I'd describe as heroes. Well, perhaps one. Long story incoming.

My middle name is István, which is named after my grandfather who lived in Hungary when it was under Soviet occupation. Occasionally, what they'd do is simply close off a street at both ends, let all the women and children out, and send all the able-bodied men to Siberia to work in the coal mines. Not because the people had done anything wrong; just because they needed more labour and, of course, everyone should be grateful to support the motherland and so on. Anyway, that's what happened to poor István. He ended up working in the coal mines for four years, in absolutely appalling conditions. The workers were fed pea soup for every meal for months on end, and had to work in the mines (>30‹C) whereas above ground it was >-20‹C. The sudden change in temperature caused quite a number to die of hypothermia/pneumonia/goodness knows what. Most amazing, however, is the fact that at one point he was the only one in his work camp of ~40 people who didn't die of an outbreak of typhoid. He managed to learn enough Russian to be able to speak to and get along with the guards, and, after four years was released back to Hungary. There, he got married, had a few children, and then went and died before I was born. I never even met the guy.

He didn't do anything that amazing; he didn't change the world, or help anyone else particularly, but I respect him for being able to put up with such horrendous treatment and come out on top. I doubt I'd be able to deal with what he went through.

>>257
Do you have any particularly interesting relatives?

257 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7505 06:07

>>256
My grandfather.

When his kids' Catholic schools sent home warnings about the Satanic Drug-Fueled Rocking And / Or Rolling Music, his reaction was to open charge accounts for my father and aunt at three local music stores.

Upon hearing that an ex-squadmate of his in the Marines (WWII, Pacific Theater) was having trouble, after the war, getting a home loan, he dragged the guy into his bank and barged into the manager's office, demanding that the bank give the guy a loan, with my grandfather as cosigner. They did, despite having turned the guy down twice previously, because "Poor Credit Risk" was, back then and back there, code for "We Don't Lend Money to No Nigras".

Despite having served when/where he did, he harbored absolutely no ill will toward the Japanese. As opposed to, e.g., Robert Heinlein, whose racial attitudes could perhaps be summed up as "Hating Negroes is Stupid; Hate the Filthy Nips Instead!". When my father gave me a copy of "The Master of Go" for my 9th birthday, my grandfather remarked that one of his greatest regrets was that he "wasn't exactly in the mood to sightsee after the war".

["The Master of Go" is a thinly-fictionalized account of the famous game between Honinbō Shūsai and Kitani Minoru, and is a great book even if you do not know go, as I certainly did not when I was 9.]

He did a lot of work toward cleaning up politics in his state, at a time when it was an open secret that the Mafia ran things.

When a friend said that there was a local "go to the bar get drunk as hell pick fights that turn into feuds" idiot gunning for him, and asked my grandfather for advice, my grandfather said "hit him first and don't stop". Later, his friend told him "Thanks. It worked."

When I screwed up and quite severely offended him and my grandmother, he neither blew off my apology (as did my grandmother) nor rubbed it in and tried for years to make me feel like shit (as does my father).

He was the only person in the family unfazed by my daughter being black, my cousin marrying a Latina or my sister being gay.

He gave me my eye color and my sense of humor.

I miss him. A lot.

C̶a̶n̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶h̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶m̶e̶ ̶a̶ ̶t̶i̶s̶s̶u̶e̶?̶ How can I convince people that everday use of cryptography is no longer the realm of the tinfoil brigade, but rather a Damned Good Idea? This whole Snowden thing hasn't done it.

258 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7505 08:16

>>257
The last sentence of your answer made me tear up a bit...
Anyway, that's a pretty loaded question. It's pretty damn hard to convince people of anything they don't care about. People tend to react only when they can see how things directly affect them. Until there's a specific example or two about an average person with a lot of media coverage, people just won't care that much. The second barrier is that using everyday cryptography is daunting for the average user. If you have the means to make the technology to use cryptography easier to use or understand, do it!

"Restoring" when I'm in one of my good moods, otherwise too lazy. I was very angry when I found out what it meant, but now I barely think about it. If you care to hear my two cents, scientific studies seem to go back and forth about some potential benefit or harm, so all things being equal it's needless surgery on an infant, which makes complications possible, so it's wrong.

>>269
There are many posts by depressed people discussing their depression to be found online. When I type one up, I realize it sounds the same as everything else I've read or just bitchier. Can you make a post about your own depression, real or otherwise, that will make me wildly sympathetic? I want to think that yours is a unique, beautiful depression that is nevertheless relatable.

269 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7508 18:55

>>268 No but I could let you hear a song that I think sums up day-to-day depression better than most songs about being depressed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxs3hG6qVSs it's quite funny. I have made posts about being depressed on the internet before and someone called me "edgy" and it sapped me for weeks

>>270 What do you think of the song I posted?

270 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7509 12:52

>>269
I grew up in Northern England (albeit a nicer corner of it), so some of the images were all too familiar. I loved the line "Your optimism strikes me like junk mail addressed to the dead". On the other hand, I can't really identify with it very much, firstly because I've never been on medication for depression (actually, I've never been on medication at all apart from homeopathic remedies, but that's another story). Secondly, though I've been depressed a fair few times, it's generally been of a far more contemplative and introspective sort. Still, a decent song.

>>277
On the rare occasion I actually like the music of an idol group, it's thanks to the production, not the actual singers. The only other thing idol groups have going for them is their looks and personality, but I find their personalities vapid. Although idols are sexy, I don't like how they exploit idealized standards of beauty for marketing. I'm more attracted to girls that are within my reach and not trying to sell me something.

That said, I like Perfume.

It's not like custom firmwares won't be released.

288 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7512 08:59

>>287
People hate Facebook (while continuing to begrudgingly use it) and this gives them an excuse to hate on it even more. And they might have somewhat of a point, even if custom firmwares are released, the average ignorant consumer might end up blindly agreeing to give up their privacy in exchange for access to cheap virtual worlds.

That depends on how enjoyable the virtual reality is compared to this one is (which I assume it is or there'd be no point asking that question.)
If that assumption holds, 24/7/365 excluding the time taken to exercise and excrete every day. Stupid inefficient meatspace body.

What, in your opinion, is the single most important piece of music ever written?

299 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7514 01:37

>>298
In terms of music history, important developments tend to form around a group of composers, making it difficult to pinpoint a single piece. In terms of affecting lives and larger political structures, it's also hard to say. Who knows how many soldiers have ended up killing more people because they were swayed by various pieces of propaganda music? Then there are revolutionary songs, like the opera "La muette de Portici", which helped start the Belgian Revolution.

That said, the most important song I can think of is "El pueblo unido jamás será vencido," the anthem of Chilean's socialist movement. The song has been used and translated by Portuguese revolutionaries, Iranian revolutionaries, Filipino revolutionaries, Argentinian revolutionaries and used in Tunisian protests, as well as other various campaigns.

I have planned my funeral and I've told my mother one of the songs I want played at my funeral, but as a whole it's not the kind of thing to bring up easily in conversation. My body would be found in the morning. I wonder what would happen to my dear computer, there's quite a bit of dubious material that could be misconstrued I bet. I got it from my stepdad after he died and there were some cute webcam photos he'd taken trying out things with his hair, I dread to think mine would be found like that...

No, because pens are too small and cheap an item for me to bother using a specialty store. If I ever run out of pens I just get the cheapest one at a random store the next time I'm out shopping. But if I were the type to buy pens online, I would probably not buy one from penisland.net, because it looks suspicious as hell (URL is only one part of this.)

Depends on what you're looking for. For your inner weeaboo faggot who loves JRPGs, as I do, PS3 is your best bet, so that's what I got. If you're more of a CoD type, I guess XBox might be better. A gaming PC would be way more expensive than either of the other choices, so if you can afford that then you can afford all three.

>>324
Is that okay?

324 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7527 15:25

>>323
Absolutely not. You must be relaxed, carefree and devoid of serious obligations at all times.

>>325
What's your handwriting like?

325 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7527 15:56

>>324
It used to be beautiful, but as I've aged, my hands have grown shakier and now it's all chicken scratch. Thank God for keyboards.

>>326
How the hell did we end up in this situation anyway?

326 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7527 16:02

We got reckless in our desperation.

>>327
Have you ever asked your imouto to call you onii-chan?

327 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7527 19:14

>>326
Alas, some cruel force of nature has left me woefully imouto-less. Perhaps it is karma for some atrocity committed in a past life. If, however, I were blessed with a younger sister, I would hope to be such a fine, upstanding older brother to her that I wouldn't even need to ask for her to refer to me with such affection. On the off chance that my beloved imouto wasn't familiar with the terminology, I wouldn't hesitate to politely request that she call me Onii-chan.

>>328
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word "chaos"?

328 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7527 22:31

Probably the Star of Chaos.

Did you ever play Warhammer? (Either 40k or the fantasy version)

329 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7528 15:26

>>328
No it's for nerds. That question is not even directed to me, but I decided to answer at any rate.

>>330
How often do you beat nerds?

330 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7528 16:55

>>329
All day, everyday.
>>331
What are your views on textbaords?

331 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7529 02:36

>>330
Assuming you mean anonymous textboards like this one, I think they are great! The lack of identity removes a lot of problems with ego and drama. And compared to anonymous image boards, I find them more interesting...maybe because outside of kopipe, all the content has to be original. Plus all the text scares away people who just want to be lazy and look at pictures.

That said, I think DQN is good not because it's a textboard, but because it's a small community of people in a fairly similar demographic. It doesn't really matter if it's a textboard, imageboard, phpBB, USENET group, mailing list, local cafe, the youtube comments of a deer video, a secret society underneath the abandoned mansion's basement, or an obscure IRC chatroom....having a solid user base is more important than the medium itself.

>>332
Do you think dance music can be enjoyed without dancing?

332 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7529 07:00

>>331
Yes, I do. I do so every day, actually.

>333

Are you interested in cults at all? If so, what do you find interesting about them?

333 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7529 18:09

>>332 Yes, I do. The ability of some people to control minds is amazing.

>>334 Have you ever seen Project A-KO? Did you like it?

334 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7531 16:28

>>333
Alas, despite my claims last time you asked, I still haven't seen it. I totally will get around to it some day, though, I promise.

>>335
What colour are your eyes?

335 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7531 17:15

>>334
They are brown.
>>336
How has your day been?

336 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7531 22:09

>>335

Confusing and tiresome. I suck at calculus II and electromagnetism.

>>336

What's the best spice?

337 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7532 02:21

>>336
I don't think there's any objective best, but my favorite is cumin. It's so delicious in Mexican food, chili, Indian curry and soups.

>>338
What's the worst spice?

338 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7532 15:02

>>337
Cilantro. I don't absolutely hate it, but it's so fucking overrated. They put god damn cilantro in everything now.

>>339
Who is the best member of your national legislature?

339 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7533 21:48

>>338 as one kind dokyun very nicely informed me elsewhere, cilantro is not a spice but an herb. He's right, but he can still go fuck himself (maybe with a food item such as a cucumber? It's up to you, really.)

So please ignore my question and make a new one.

340 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7533 22:23

>>341
Have you ever fucked yourself with a cucumber?

341 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7533 23:10

>>340
No, but I've fucked myself with a banana.

>>342
How many neckties do you own?

342 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7534 00:01

>>341
Three. I haven't worn them in years.

>>343
How many pairs of shoes do you own?

343 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7534 00:15

>>342
Four: one pair of general use brown shoes, badly worn; one pair of trainers, barely used; one pair of walking boots, well used but still in good condition, and one pair of brand new black boots I bought earlier today to replace my worn out brown ones.

>>344
What is your favourite piece of music that is less than three minutes long?

>>345
How much do you like cute things?

345 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7534 12:58

>>344
A lot! Cute things are wonderful and always make me feel better. If there were more cute things around, I'm sure everyone would be happier.

>>346
How could anyone not like cute things?

346 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7534 14:04

They have not achieved enlightenment.

What should I listen to this evening?

347 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7534 21:42

Lord Belial.

>>348
Which game off my shelf of discs should I try to beat next: Star Reach, or Hellbender?

348 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7535 00:12

>>347
Wikipedia informs me that hellbender is also a type of giant salamander, which is pretty badass. I'm going to have to recommend Hellbender on this basis alone.

>>349
Don't you think the word "answer" would fit better than "solve" in the thread title?

349 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7535 00:37

>>348
Yeah

>>350
Do you like son or cos more?

350 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7535 00:47

>>349
Son, because at 31 I tend to be older than the average person on most parts of the 'net that I frequent, and it gives me the proper condescending air when I feel the need to lecture the kiddies about how much better video games were back in the day, or whatever.

>>351
What makes you feel old?

351 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7535 04:09

>>350
The little squinching noises my knees make when I walk down stairs.

>>352
What is that little thing hanging off your ear?

352 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7535 05:42

>>351
A piece of vinyl from the earpads of my old MDR-V6.
I really should get around to replacing them soon.

>>353
What's your favourite superpower from the 'useless superpower' thread?

353 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7535 20:23

>>352
I think "can bend spoons with his mind - when he instructs his hands, via his mind, to bend spoons" made me smile the most.

>>354
Once and for all, is that poop or is it choco-aisu?

354 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7536 00:21

>>353
The thrill, the beauty, the very experience itself lies in not knowing for certain.

>>355
What would your ideal tea party be like?

355 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7536 05:36

Frilly and cute

>>356
What's your favourite Japonic language that isn't Japanese?

356 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7539 14:30

>>355
The only one I've heard is Okinawan, so I'll say that. Shiisa yaibin!

>>357
Do you think voyeurism completely unbeknownst to the one being watched is ethical?

357 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7539 15:31

>>356
This is often brought up in the argument against utilitarianism, and I feel it's important to take into account the feelings of the voyeur(s). While there is no direct suffering inflicted upon the voyeuree, the voyeur(s) after seeing how easy it is to spy are left with a sense of paranoia that they themselves are being watched so I don't think it's possible to phrase this situation to have zero suffering.

On the other hand often times this argument is specifically phrased as "producing zero suffering" in which case the premise has already (likely falsely but none the less) tautologically stated that it's ethical so of course it's ethical.

>>358
Ethics aside, if it was right there in front of you would you take a peek?

358 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7542 15:17

>>357
A quick one out of curiosity. Then I'd get embarrassed and look away.

>>359
What was your earliest memory?

359 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7542 15:27

>>358
Falling off a skateboard and skinning my knee.
Life hasn't improved much from there.

>>360
Can you read music?

360 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7542 16:27

>>359
I'm supposed to be able to by now, but I just know C and G then look at the intervals from those to figure out which key is what. I think my teacher might be catching on to me.

>>361
When was the last time you took a nap outside?

361 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7544 16:30

>>360
Not in living memory. I can't remember the last time I had a nap at all, for that matter.

>>362
What is your favourite type of cloud?

362 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7544 17:50

>>361 really loud ones!

>>363 What is your favourite type of rain?

363 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7544 22:36

>>362
Really heavy rain. Of course, there's the problem of leaving the rain and feeling wet, but nothing beats the cleansing sensation of a downpour.

>>364
Do you like the Cyberpunk genre?

364 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7544 22:48

>>363
I like the Clonepa genre!

>>365
Do you like Clonepa?

365 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7545 14:54

>>364
Who doesn't?

>>366
In your own words, what is moé?

366 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7545 16:00

>>365 When a girl's cuteness makes you feel all melty, and you just want to keep her in your pocket safe and warm forever. (I guess maybe a boy could be moé too, but I haven't really thought about it). What you have to remember though, is that she's a person with thoughts and feelings and hopes and dreams and aspirations; be careful not to stifle her with your selfish love.

>>367 How long has it been since fortune shone her brightest on you?

367 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7546 14:40

>>366
Well I recently got bumped up to business class for a 16-hour flight. Didn't get so lucky on the way home though.

>>368
Pro-life or pro-choice?

368 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7546 15:57

>>367
Anti-life, babies are terrible little shits that grow up to become terrible big shits.

>>369
Whats your favorite flavor of jam?

369 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7546 16:39

>>368
Anything, except country and rap.

>>370
What is the earliest book you remember reading?

370 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7546 17:56

>>369
Northern Lights (also known as The Golden Compass, if you happen to be wrong American). I'm quite certain I read other books before it, but for the life of me I can't remember them. I remember thinking it was really good, and reading both the sequels afterwards in quick succession. I saw the film when it came out, and was very annoyed that they missed out the dramatic twist at the end, which was one of the best parts of the book. Pah!

>>371
What was the first visual novel you ever read?

371 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7546 18:44

>>370 X-Change, it made me gay.

>>372 Do you believe people are born gay, or become gay?

372 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7546 23:04

>>371 Born, just another kind of preference. Now at what time do you discover or accept it, that's another thing. Gay people are something you never see as a kid and when you do discover it the consensus by society is that they're disgusting, so you're kinda conditioned against it since young. That makes it hard for some people to accept they're gay until later on, and try "compensating" for it meanwhile.

>>373 Would you rather die in a fire or drowning?

373 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7547 00:19

>>372
Far and away drowning. The sensation of being burnt is one of the worst ones and the thought of having it all over is horrific. Drowning, on the other hand, is supposedly fairly peaceful once you pass the initial panic.

>>374
Did you ever try smoking?

374 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7547 00:33

>>373
Cigarettes, no. I smoked the ganja a couple times. Not a big fan. Won't be doing it again.

>>375
Do you hate sweating?

375 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7547 02:11

>>374 Yes, worst of all is I have specially sweaty armpits for some reason. It just takes a bit of intense activity in the summer to make me smell like crap for the rest of the day.

>>376 What's your weight and how do you feel about it?

376 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7547 03:25

>>375
Around 130 pounds. I am a little skinnier than I would like but it's hard to build muscle as a vegetarian.

>377
What did you think of the last book you read?

377 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7547 03:46

>>376
It was really good! I read the graveyard book, and had recently read the jungle book so I got to compare all the stories in them and enjoy the unique take.

>>378
What manga are you following currently?

378 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7547 08:30

>>377
Nothing at the moment, but I very recently finished reading Route 225 by Takako Shimura.

>>379
What sort of birthday present should I get for my mother? She recently turned 50, so I thought I'd put in a little effort for this one, at least.

379 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7547 18:15

>>378
Make her a dildo molded after your dick, like in this comic: http://sexylosers.com/125.html

>>380
Which was better, Sexy Losers or Ghastly's Ghastly Comic?

380 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7564 14:22

>>379
Gunshow is better than either of those.

>>381
What, in your opinion, is the most useless field of modern science?

381 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7564 15:16

>>380 Mathematics, it's just numbers and they don't even exist!

>>382 Have you ever met a "celebrity"?

382 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7564 17:10

>>381
I sat next to a guy on an airplane once who ran a small record label. He was a professional jazz drummer and apparently a big deal in the scene where he lived. His name was Stix Hooper. I remember that he was really chill and also that he kept ordering screwdrivers. According to Wikipedia:

"Among the numerous acknowledgements and accolades Stix has garnered are 12 Grammy nominations, No. 1 awards from various music media, named one of the top drummers/musicians by Downbeat, Playboy Magazine and other publications, received an invitation to the White House, keys to major US cities and several international honors."

>>383
If someone gave you $2055 to spend on yourself with the requirement that you make exactly two purchases you would not normally make, what would be your second purchase?

383 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7564 17:26

>>382
A computer worth $2000. First purchase was a pack of vitamins, I don't buy that shit ever. As for the computer, how often you spend $2000 on a single computer? It's so abnormal, my credit card company would probably phone me about the unusual purchase, if my credit limit was that big in the first place, anyway.

>>384
Do you have a credit card? How many boxes of pop tarts would you be able to buy before maxing it? If you don't then you can calculate the number of boxes based on an approximation of how much money your parents have spent on you since you were 10.

384 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7565 01:49

>>383 I use a debit card only. I have seen bad things happen to friends who take on big debts.

>>385 Do you have less debt than your friends?

385 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7565 03:53

>>384
I have 0 monetary debt and 0 friends. However, I do have family members who are in monetary debt to me. So if they count as friends, then yes.

>>386
what's the best flavor of pop tart?

386 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7565 04:33

>>385 I've found myself preferring the store brand version of frosted brown sugar cinnamon to the PopTart version of same.

>>387 Have you backed up your computer recently?

387 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7565 05:59

>>386
i have everything in raid 1 so i don't feel it's pressing, but i haven't. i totally haven't backed up my laptop in ages.

>>388
compute the remainder when 5^55555 is divided by 7 (and the quotient too, if you wish). If you feel like it, also compute the remainder when 5^(5^(5^(5^5))) is divided by seven.

That ain't a question, foo

What's your favorite fat character?

Be careful, RAID is not a backup solution! If you're still not convinced, read this on why you should backup:

>>388
The main character from "Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend."

>>390
If you could only eat one particular meal for lunch every day for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

390 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7565 20:32

>>389
I already eat the same thing for lunch more or less every day: two raisin and cinnamon bagels with pâté and sliced cucumber, followed by an apple. A good mixture of things.

>>391
How much chocolate do you generally eat, and what sort?

391 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7566 21:35

>>390
not much, because vegan chocolate is expensive (but at least it usually tastes good). i prefer moderately dark chocolate.

>>392
what did you last eat for lunch?

392 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7566 22:36

>>391
Three cream cheese and Hungarian sausage sandwiches. Made for me by my mother.

>>393
When is your bedtime?

393 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7567 14:49

>>392
My bedtime is whenever I feel like it, though I try to get to bed by midnight.

>>387
5 and 5?

>>394
Pineapple on pizza: yes/no/who cares?

394 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7567 15:35

>>393 I'd never deliberately buy it but I've tried it when offered and it's not bad at all.

>>395 What's the sparkliest thing you can see from your current position?

395 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7567 16:56

>>394 The sparkly plastic headphones someone next to me is wearing. Incidentally, they're dr. dre's beats.

>>396 What kind of headphones do you use?

396 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7567 17:52

>>395
They say "Sennheiser" on the top; that's all I know. They were a gift from my brother and have served me well for many years.

It's a dead-end with no possibility for innovation under the current system

>>399
AM/PM display or 24-hour display?

399 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7568 08:09

>>398
24-hour, definitely. It eliminates ambiguity and makes calculating time usage and distance across noon more intuitive.

>>400
How should I cure or at least temper my Internet addiction without going off the Internet completely? I use it for valid things, but I also waste too much time on unnecessary stuff like combing eBay for things way out of my current budget. I also have a bad habit of refreshing forums compulsively when waiting for replies.

400 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7568 18:08

>>399
This may be rather dubious advice, but personally I would recommend that you make an effort to change how you procrastinate. In particular, favour things that have a clear ending; you can browse eBay or forums indefinitely, whereas once what you're doing comes to a conclusion you're forced to do something else. Try small browser games like jigsaws or Tetris, or whatever floats your boat. These have the added bonus of a satisfying sense of accomplishment/progression as you get better at them.

>>401
Very approximately, what's your current financial situation?

401 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7568 19:33

>>400 Hmmm better than it's been for a very long time, but still only about a third of the way to my target.

>>402 What are you saving up for?

402 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7569 14:43

>>401 I'm not saving yet because I just got out of school and need a more stable job, but I'd like it if I could continue to pay my assistants to work for me on royalty generating projects after I ditch my crappy clients.

>>403 What do you do for self-actualization?

403 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7571 02:38

>>402 I guess I try and learn things, for now. And I like to talk to people. But I'm not sure.

>>404 what is your favourite kind of rock?

404 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7571 14:06

Rutile.

How convincingly do you think you could pass as a girl, with enough preparation?

405 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7572 15:05

Remove beard, comb hair, wear frilly. Chin in. Done.

>>406
I'm about to pop down to Family Mart. Want anything?

406 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7572 16:45

>>405 no thanks dude!

>>407 Have you ever tried squid-flavour crisps/potato chips?

407 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7572 17:09

>>406 I didn't even know squid flavored chips existed. I guess if I see some, I will try them.

>>408 Do you like playing with emulators and ROMs?

408 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7572 17:36

>>407 no, I like kickin' it oldschool with real hardware and legit copies. But emulation is nice to have as a last resort.

>>409 What's the oldest gaming system (console, PC that you play games on, whatever) that you currently own?

409 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7572 23:33

Wow, I have no idea. Probably the last time I went to a family restaurant, but I have no idea when that was either. They always have a tin of cheap crayons and disposable placemats with cereal box-esque puzzles on them at that kind of place, you know what I mean?

>>411
In the folk tune John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt, for the second, shouted reiteration of his (your?) name, just before the da's, is it better to sing "Jacob" with a rhythm of straight eighths or a dotted eighth and sixteenth? How do the Germans do it?
And while we're on the subject, how do you feel about syncopating "his name is" so that "name" is off the beat?
also, and I know this is really pushing it, but are "name" and "too" supposed to be a half-step or a full step apart?

411 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7575 00:39

>>410
I don't know how the Germans do it, but it's not really a German song anyway. Given that it's a folk song of unknown origin, there's no way that it's supposed to be. Sing it however you want. Make up your own variations.

In my personal opinion, dotted rhythm is much better, same goes for syncopating "his name." A syncopated rhythm gives the song more energy and fits the song's joyfully silly nature.

In terms of a major scale numbered 1 to 7, the first "name" is on 4, the second "name" is on 2, and "too" is on 3. So, "too" is a half-step apart from the first "name" and a whole step apart from the second "name." However, some people might sharpen the second "name" to give it more pull toward the resolution, which is perfectly acceptable. In this case it would be a half-step apart. Do what suits you.

How often do you use drinking straws?

I had heard a while back of the Dorcus titanus, a type of beetle. Performing an internet search for that phrase reveals Eremobates inyoanus, Pinus rigida, etc..

Still, Homo Erectus has, by far, the best humor/obscurity ratio.

What was the strangest experience you have ever had?

427 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7578 11:47

>>426
Well just tonight my roommate threw and ice cube into hot oil causing it to smoke and splash everywhere. With that, my friend and our guests had to grab fabric items and wave them in front of the smoke detector. While this was happening, my roommate thought it was a good idea to just spill all the oil on the kitchen floor which I almost slipped on when returning a towel. Then the girls living downstairs below us got mad at the noise. I began telling them what happened and they immediately felt sympathetic and apologized to us. We all sat around for a couple hours chit chatting about really strange shit while my roommate clumsily cleaned up. I didn't even get to make a cup of tea.

There was this other time where me and a friend independently saw and heard a bird in my room. I didn't say anything then because I thought it was just me, but he later brought up that he saw and heard a bird in the same location as I did.

>>428
Do you enjoy train rides?

428 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7578 12:07

>>427
Yes, absolutely! I love watching the scenery pass by out the window, and I've always found it a much more civilised way to travel than flying or driving. The best train journey I've been on was a twelve hour trip from Italy to Hungary, via Austria. Lots of scenic mountains and picturesque vineyards and so on.

>>429
On a similar note, do you enjoy plane journeys?

429 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7578 12:27

>>428
That depends on a lot of things, such as who I'm flying with, the quality of the service and food, the duration of the flight, the texture/hardness/position/smell of the chairs, the entertainment system (if any), and so on.
On the whole I detest plane journeys.

People who would "deserve" violent premature death for the sake of humanity fall into at least one of three categories, as I see it:

• People whose atrocities were bad enough to change history reactively for the better (i.e. Hitler). Generally speaking, these people should be left completely alone because they catalyzed important positive developments for humanity equal to or greater than their atrocities. Even in the best-case scenario where the developments we can identify would have happened anyway, these people were pivotal enough that changing their lives could cause very significant and unpredictable changes to history as we know it. How lucky do you feel?

• People who simply happened to be "in charge" of a larger organization and whose death would most likely result in someone else seizing power and continuing the same thing (i.e. anyone in the Kim Dynasty) because the culture clearly supported it. I would classify assassins of major figures here too, even if they weren't leaders, because their roles would probably just be filled by someone else if they weren't there. Which is to say, these people are more an artifact/symptom of a larger systemic problem\though in carefully and strategically considered cases some of their deaths may be the wisest choices.

• People who acted largely or wholly on their own and whose atrocities were more or less insignificant in the grand scheme of things (i.e. any of many serial killers). For instance, I wouldn't argue against killing Ted Bundy, but realistically a few dozen murders don't matter in a world of billions.

I'm not ready to choose a victim; I'd prefer to take knowledge back than death. Or make a backup of the contents of the Library of Alexandria, or something along those lines.

Do you still enjoy birthdays or have they begin to remind you that you're getting old?

443 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7580 08:04

>>442
A little bit of both. My last birthday came and went without any fanfare, but I did get a little money from my family and I made a point of treating myself to whatever I wanted on that day. However, I also experienced moments of vague existential dread. I'm already 24 and I haven't accomplished anything! I think I'll get progressively more depressed about my birthday every year until around 30, when I will learn to stop caring about my failed dreams and just use my birthday as an excuse to binge.

Oh, gosh, there are so many to choose from. Anything smug and unconfigurable, so the obvious choice for recent times is Gnome 3. However, for personal hatred I have to choose the GUI interface to Rational's ClearCase. Using it is like walking through a museum of terrible interface choices from various decades and paradigms.

459 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7745 22:23

>>458
Taken as a whole, staying much the same. In some countries, living conditions are getting worse because of overpopulation, disease, famine, war, exploitation and so on. But this has always happened. There is less slavery but just as much suffering. In other countries, the quality of life is improving, but this has led to more existential and mental suffering. There are happy people in poor countries and unhappy people in rich countries. There is nothing new under the sun.

How many video games have you bought that you haven't played at all yet, not even a peek?

494 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7757 03:52

>>493
A few years back I got an original Xbox at a rummage sale and it had maybe a dozen games with it. I didn't play any of the sports ones, and I probably never will. I don't remember how many games exactly, but I think everything else I've owned in the past I've at least tried. So let's say 4-5.

>>495
Which pizza topping is your favorite?

495 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7757 14:55

>>494
I'm partial to spicy ones, with jalapeños and such.

>>496
How's the weather where you are?

496 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7765 13:45

>>495
Refreshingly cool. I love the monsoon season.

>>497
What do you want for your birthday?

497 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7765 14:38

>>496
An overarching purpose to my life.

>>498
When was the last time you washed your hair?

498 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7765 22:43

>>497
This night.

>>499
Who do you envy the most?

499 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7777 05:05

>>498
People with jobs.

>>500
What are you wearing?

500 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7777 05:44

>>499
All black, apparently. I didn't even think about that too carefully.

>>501
It's not bad if people think I'm a failed goth, right?

501 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7777 05:45

>>499 I just got in bed so absolutely nothing. A comforter I guess.

>>501 do you prefer warm temperature and light blankets or cold temperature and heavy blankets?

502 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7777 19:33

>>591 Warm temperatures and light blankets. There is a good reason I never left the state of Florida, I like hot weather.

>>503 What is your favorite Japanese mecha of all time?

503 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7817 00:02

>>502
Danbo.

>>504
How often do you drink tea? And what sort?

504 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7817 00:59

>>503
About once a week at most. I prefer cheap fruit flavored tea, my favorite is peach.

>>505
How do you feel about the future of yourself? Are you worried, excited, or both?

505 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7817 05:43

>>504
I'm not worried or excited, I'm resigned to the fact that I'm going to be living a shitty professional sort of life doing something I don't care about completely for the money. I hope one day to quit that career and do what I really want.

>>506
What's the greatest problem with the world today?

506 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7817 23:27

>>505
Large scale neglect for the environment.

>>507
Do you play a musical instrument?

507 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7818 20:49

>>506
I used to. E flat horn, motherfuckers! I also understand keyboard, but not enough to really actually play. I'm more of a composer now though, but I still remember how to finger Star Wars.

>>508
What does one do about the threshold in the number of figures owned where your bedroom suddenly turns into an Akiba 2nd hand shop? And what the hell happened to >>500's answer?

508 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7820 16:33

>>507
You could try spreading them out across multiple rooms, or make them blend in better by placing them each inside tastefully arranged little dioramas.

The response to >>500 fell through the cracks of reality, far beyond the limits of our humble understanding.

>>509
How do you feel about Lovecraft's work, and fiction in that style generally?

509 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7820 20:34

>>508
Horror and supernatural themes are not my taste. I prefer optimistic sci-fi stories, where the only enemy is ignorance.

>>510
Do you like stargazing?

510 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7821 22:20

>>509
Unfortunately, everywhere that I've lived so far has had extremely bad light pollution, so I haven't had much of a chance. On the few occasions that I've been stargazing somewhere where I can actually see anything, I've rather enjoyed it, especially things like watching meteor showers or seeing the ISS pass overhead. I don't know the first thing about recognising constellations or such, though.

>>511
When was the last time you went to a protest/demonstration/public march, and what was it in aid of?

511 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7822 15:14

>>510
Never did. The kind of people who march in those are utterly embarrassing to be around.

>>512
When's the last time you watched a protest and rolled your eyes in exasperation at their stupidity?

512 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7822 16:17

>>511
I once saw a group of people protest because of the result of a football match, but normally I think public protests are paramount for a working democracy and fill me with hope in our future.

>>513
How do you feel about your own government?

513 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7823 18:22

>>512
Could be better if we got those lizard-people everyone's talking about in charge.

>>514
What do you think will be the best form of government by 2100?

514 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7824 01:15

>>513 By then, we will have all attained true immortality without sacrificing our humanity and also we will have embraced anarcho-hedonism. Society will looks something like a mass collection of sex and violence, where pain and pleasure are one and have consumed the planet.

>>515 Do you accept "dice" as an acceptable singular, or do you prefer "dice" remain plural only while "die" functions as the singular form?

515 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7824 02:46

>>514
I prefer "douse" in the singular and "dice" in the plural.

>>516
Do you prefer green or black tea?

516 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7824 06:15

>>515
Black

>>517
Do you often eat beans/legumes?

517 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7824 18:16

>>516
No, almost never in fact. I prefer root/leafy vegetables instead.

>>518
What even are Fourier transforms?

518 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7824 22:45

>>517
Threeier transforms plus oneier transform.

>>519
Should I buy a japanese style futon?

519 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7825 00:24

>>518
Only if you have a tatami mat room. On a wooden floor it's going to be way too stiff. (Even on tatami, I still prefer a mattress, personally.)

>>520
Should I confess my love to a friend, even though we are both in stable long-term relationships?

520 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7826 00:29

>>519
I think you should think very carefully about what would be in the best interests of everyone involved, as this could seriously negatively affect several people beyond yourself. I'd have to know a lot more about the situation to advise you properly, but overall frankly it sounds like a terrible idea.

>>521
What have you eaten today?

521 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7826 19:37

>>520
A slice of bread and some cheese. It was expensive cheese, too.

>>522
If you keep using your computer (or other device with which you're reading this) at typical use patterns, but don't upgrade or maintain it at all, which part do you think will fail first?

522 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7826 20:03

>>521
The hard drive (this is a couple-years old samsung netbook). I have perceptible pauses even in text editors, while the disk spins up so it can write the file. Under the assumption that maintenance means I can't modify the laptop mode settings, this would be the first thing to make me throw it out the window.

>>523
It's 8pm. Was this coffee a bad idea?

523 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7826 21:10

>>522
Probably not. Unless you're some weakling unused to drinking coffee and even one cup is enough to keep you awake.

>>524
I lost almost 100$ yesterday. What would be the best way not to starve if I can't pay for food for a couple of weeks?

524 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7826 22:09

>>523
Ask your friends or family for food and/or money. Tell them you are in a desperate situation. I'm sure they don't want you to starve.

>>525
Which country are you from?

525 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7826 23:08

>>524
England, although I'm also half Hungarian.

>>526
What do you know about Hungary, off the top of your head, without looking anything up?

526 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7827 00:31

>>525
Palinka and Magyar

>>527
How often do you pee?

527 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7827 20:38

>>526
No more than half a dozen times a day. More often when I'm cold, or so bored at work that I just keep getting drinks (it's probably at least 20 times a day, every work day).

>>528
Could you recommend me a trackball?

528 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7827 23:35

>>527
I recommend that you track my balls as I slowly lower them into your gaping anus.

>>529
What's your favourite tonal language?

529 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7828 02:25

>>528
Dorian mode in D.

>>530
How many people do you consider close friends?

530 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7828 04:53

>>529
DQNs are my only friends, really. So three or four.

>>531
There are two chairs, one covered in dicks and one covered in spikes. Which one will you sit on and, which one will your mother sit on?

531 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7828 13:22

>>530
I sit on the dick-covered on and let my mother sit on the spike-covered one. But we both earth titanium pants.

>>532
How many people are here anyway?

532 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7828 16:13

>>531
A lot more than people think.

>>533
What's your favourite internet acronym?

533 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7828 19:36

>>532 3DPD

>>544 would you prefer if all women were pettanko or bakunyuu?

534 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7828 21:41

>>533
big tits

>>535
Do you drink oil?

535 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7829 03:41

>>534
No, for I am not in any way a robot.

>>536
oh god WHAT'S THAT BEHIND YOU???

536 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7829 03:55

>>535
A gay-ass wall.

>>537
Bacteria?

537 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7830 00:23

>>536
Did you know bacteria have been observed to have sex? Everything you were taught in biology class was a lie.

>>538
How many different places have you lived in - say, for at least a month - over the course of your life?

538 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7830 00:56

>>537
Well, I was only in Greece for about 2 months, Now I will probably visit Spain but I'm not sure for how many months or days...

>>539
Do you listen to lolicore or breakcore?

539 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7830 01:25

>>538
no

>>540
Does your room smell like fish?

540 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7830 02:13

>>539
Only after MY GIRLFRIEND stays the night.

>>541
Are you done yet? Supervisor's waiting on you.

541 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7830 04:24

>>540
Yes. Here are the files, I hope they're everything you need.

>>542
Why am I so tired all the time lately?

542 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7830 06:57

>>541
I'm a doctor and it's clearly a case of brain cancer. You have 20 days to live.

>543

What's the most embarrassing way to die? Something that would make whoever finds you either laugh at you or question your life choices. Or both.

543 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7831 03:52

>>542 I have heard of auto-erotic asphyxiation is an extremely dumb way to die.

>>544 Do you often find that masturbating with your bare hand isn't enough?

544 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7831 06:26

>>543 I wouldn't say often, no.

>>545 Why has my nose been smelling funny for the past week or so?

545 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7832 01:05

>>544
You have a cold or something, go to the doctor.

>>546
I don't really want anything out of life. Is this a blessing or a curse?

546 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7833 00:16

>>545
Depends, it could go either way really. If you mean that you're able to take pleasure in the flow of life without needing to impose your own will on it then that's probably a good thing. If you mean you've simply given up on actively trying to live then it's probably not.

>>547
What is your current desktop background?

547 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7833 01:21

>>546
A perfunctory color-fill of #3399FF.
I don't see the point of desktop backgrounds.

>>548
How do you cope with the fact that you'll never be special?

548 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7833 01:48

>>547
Cope? Are you saying it's a bad thing?

>>549
At some point, you will be forgotten by all. What do you think the last thought anyone will think about you is?

549 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7833 06:32

>>548
"I wonder what ever happened to that weird guy I went to *th grade with."

>>550
What should I do with my last 17 days of life? (according to >>542's prognosis)

550 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7833 23:47

>>549
Prove/disprove a famous mathematical problem. If in 17 days' time you haven't gotten anywhere, just say you've come up with a beautiful elegant proof but haven't got long enough to write it all down before dying.

>>551
Should I try learning Swahili? Supposedly it's an absolute pushover of a language.

551 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7835 18:29

>>550

Go for it

>>552

Do you like aquariums?

552 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7836 23:45

>>551
For a while I was rather put off by the whole idea of zoos and aquariums and suchlike, but, having read the bit near the start of Life of Pi where he discusses the topic, and having now been to one or two myself, I can appreciate that it's somewhat naive to assume that taking an animal from its natural environment is necessarily harmful to it. It's been a very long time since I went to an aquarium, but I suppose I do like them in the abstract.

>>553
Do you think a procedurally generated text adventure sounds like a good idea?

553 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7837 00:41

>>552
Yes, but it would have to have a lot of input possibilities to avoid repeating itself and becoming boring.

>>554
What made all these marks in my table?

What starch do you consume the most of?

556 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7845 14:33

>>555
If you meant what source of starch, then probably pasta, especially spaghetti.

>>557
What has been your least favourite book that you've read all the way to the end?

557 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7846 04:33

>>556
Ignoring books that were assigned to me back in middle/high school, Asimov's "Foundation & Earth", which I only read in the hopes of some kind of closure for the thoroughly irritating end of "Foundation's Edge". A perfect example of a great author writing himself into a corner (although if he'd lived longer he might have ended the sequence with satisfaction).

>>558
What was the last work of fiction you read/watched/listened to/etc. in which the ending positively surprised you?

558 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7846 15:09

>>557
The first one that comes to mind is Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let me Go. I have to admit I was rather lukewarm about it most of the way through and didn't really care that much about the characters or what happened to them. The ending, however, was really excellent, completely unexpected and tied up the story beautifully. It's worth reading for the ending alone.

>>559
Have you ever donated blood?

559 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7848 19:24

>>558 No. I have to take medicines every day, and that disqualifies me from giving blood.

>>560 do you prefer faucets with one handle or two handles?

560 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7849 02:50

>>559
One handle, by far. For both showers and taps.
You can use it with one hand, you can turn the water off and on while keeping the temperature constant, and a single handle looks more congruous with the single stream of water.

>>561
How would you feel if you found out mathematics was, in fact, empirical?

561 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7849 18:04

>>560
Nonplussed.

>>562
How's your fern?

562 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7852 17:01

>>561
How'd you know about my fern? Getting a little personal, don't you think?

>>563
Can I be your bride?

563 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7852 17:46

>>562
In theory, yes. In reality, no.

>>564
Do you have any unusual fears/phobias, or do you know anyone who does?

564 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7924 22:31

>>563
My psychology teacher from years ago had a phobia of birds. She claimed it was from a traumatic experience she had when she was very young: she, her mother and her younger sister (still in a pushchair) were out in the park feeding birds, when an aggressive swan came and tried to bully the bread from her. It apparently bit her by the head and lifted her clean off the ground - meanwhile, she saw her mother running away and abandoning her, prioritising keeping her younger sister from danger. That does sound pretty traumatising, all things considered.

>>565
If you were to die right now, how long do you think it would take for somebody to find your body?

565 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7924 23:57

>>564
This very instant? I'm on an office full of people and I don't even get to enjoy the privacy of a cubicle. It wouldn't take very long until someone notices there's a corpse lying in the middle of the hallway, that's assuming somehow everybody around me just failed to see me collapsing on the floor. By the way, if someone passing by were to pay attention to my screen, they'd see I'm wasting time here on DQN instead of working.

>>566
Do you have any strategies to stealthily browse DQN while at work?

566 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7925 17:19

>>565
Work at home. I've done it since 4-ch came about.

>>567
Is that your phone ringing?

567 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7925 21:27

Joke's on you, my phone is out of battery right now!

>>568
Roughly how many kanji do you know?

568 Name: RedCream : 1993-09-7925 23:00

>>567
I knoa zeroa Kanji. I see noa reason to learn any, even nao.

>>569
How often do you admit yoar roal?

569 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 02:24

>>567
I know a couple like chikara and some other common ones like water, fire, etc. I'd say under 20 total.

>>570
Is Discordianism a joke religion/philosophy, or is it completely serious?

570 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 05:03

>>569
I doubt they have reached a consensus on that point.

>>571
What things that are definitely jokes today do you think will be mistakenly interpreted as serious by the future?

571 Name: RedCream : 1993-09-7926 05:13

>>570
Cheese! In thoa foature everyoan will eat cheese! Lol!

>>571
What do you think about <b>PUMBLENUTS</b>! Just kidding!!! no im not!

572 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 05:31

>>570
A lot of the parodies of the more extreme serious Tumblrisms like otherkin and headmates. Things like transracial specifically, though they may already be people who are taking the joke seriously.

>>573
What's your favorite variable used in science or mathematic?

573 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 05:36

I like to use Z because it looks like 2 and confuses others.

Has science gone too far?

574 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 05:42

>>573 here, I can firmly say it has.

What do you think?

575 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 05:50

>>574
I'll trust your judgement

>>576
Isn't s closer to 5 than z is to 2?

576 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 06:44

>>575
I don't think any one is closer in appearance than the other. They're both similar.

How far is the distance between where you are and where you want to be?

579 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 22:31

>>578
A couple of thousand miles, one language barrier, one magical barrier and one barrier between reality and fantasy.

>>580
Do you talk to yourself? If so, what about? If not, what do you think of people who do?

580 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7938 01:55

>>579 Yes. About my predictions for world events and estimating the odds of various things.

>>581 What do you think about gravebumps?

581 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7938 05:15

>>580 I've never heard of them, but they don't sound pleasant.

>>582 What did you do for Memorial Day?

582 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7938 19:52

>>581 I went to the grocery store and bought some supplies for my mother.

>>583 Have you ever gone to a Chinese restaurant on Christams Day?

583 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7945 22:14

>>582
No; all my Christmas meals have been rather traditional and boring. However, I do remember one year, when I was quite young and for reasons I can't recall, my parents took me to a supermarket some time around midnight on Christmas Eve. All the fake joviality of the environment and the obvious fact that every single person present desperately didn't want to be there made it a rather surreal experience. It's the sort of bizarre memory that I almost suspect might've been confabulated or just a misrecalled dream.

If you were me, what question would you ask the following poster?

>>586
How did you get your unusual fetish?

586 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7947 19:14

>>585 Because girls would always pretend they don't do that thing, and I never got to see them do it when I needed to see it.

>>587 Ever play Hatris?

587 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7947 21:20

>>586
I just did. Before I googled it, I expected it to be a joke game referencing TF2. It was pretty underwhelming compared to actual Tetris but the music was cool.

>>588
On a scale of 1 to 10, how important is sex (with physical, 3D people) to you?

588 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7947 23:03

>>587
Probably about a 2. I can appreciate in the abstract that it's pleasurable and a good method of emotional bonding, and might seek it if I needed either of these things, but for the foreseeable future I'm more than happy with 2D.

>>589
Copenhagen or many worlds? Or something else entirely?

589 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8291 20:23

>>588
Copenhagen. I've seen no evidence for the many worlds interpretation at all, it seems like just wishful thinking. Personally I have no particular problem with determinism or God playing dice.

>>590
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

590 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8292 12:01

>>589
A scientist, maybe? And a game programmer! Now I'm hoping I get to finish uni with the CS degree I don't care much for anymore (not surprising, the curriculum is only okay and I've been using computers for almost 3/4 of my life), and then maybe I'll be able to research every topic I will care about! (Ha ha, no, you need funding for that, silly.)
Plus, I can't exactly study chemistry on my own; it was far less complicated and a legitimate interest when you were a teen.

>>591
( ί -ί) A friend of mine is very, very depressed. Too much to kill themselves, I expect, but I feel so powerless, I actually started avoiding talking with him because it's too painful. How much of a coward am I, and how do I put my own mood swings on hold in order to help my friend?

591 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8292 14:27

>>590
I remember hearing that apparently one of the most common causes of drowning is untrained people trying to save someone else from drowning and being pulled under themselves. Similarly, if you aren't equipped to help someone with depression then you shouldn't risk your own mental health in an attempt to help them. Of course, you should still try to help your friend where you can, but don't take all the responsibility on yourself. I can't really advise you on mood swings, but I'd suggest that it might be best for both of you if you focus on encouraging him to find professional help.

>>592
What is your opinion of modern art?

592 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8292 16:29

>>591
Overpriced garbage, for the most part, which I guess is matching the inevitable societal slide into degeneracy and mediocrity.

>>593
Paper or plastic?

593 Name: i L_T`j : 1993-09-8292 16:45

>>592
No thanks, I brought my own. (Store managers, take note. If you want more people to do this, do what my grocery stores did and just run out of all disposable bags consistently for two months.)

>>594
Paper clips or very small binder clips?

594 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8292 21:46

>>593
Very small binder clips. You lose the advantage of flatness, but they feel more secure and easier to manipulate.

>>595
Flat or wavy chips?

595 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8293 04:55

In your opinion, should prostitution be legalised/regulated? If so, how?

597 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8294 05:21

598 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8294 12:53

Swedish.

>>599
I want to make a bullet hell game. My plan isn't too complicated, but it would still involve some fairly serious amounts of programming, and I only know basic Python. Should I stick with Python (and make use of existing, well documented modules like Pygame) or should I take the time to learn a more serious programming language first? If so, which one?

599 Name: i L_T`j : 1993-09-8294 14:46

>>598
The elitist in me says that you should stop using your crappy language and use my objectively superior language. Really, though, you have a concrete goal right now. You should try to achieve the goal with what you know. If you end up at a point where you say "Gosh, I really wish I had this very specific thing", you'll be in a position to find and use a language which gives you that thing. Maybe in a year you'll look back at the code you write tomorrow and hate it, but at least 1) you'll have written it, and 2) you'll have learned from it.

How big is the apple?

604 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8295 17:50

Almost as big as the Big Apple.

Do you want/plan to have children in the future? If so, how many?

605 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8295 17:55

Two or three. I was named after my father who was named after his father and so on, so I kind of feel a responsibility to have a son. It won't be soon, though.

>>609 What is your favorite thing to say to people?

609 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8302 09:41

>>608
Depends on the context and how much I like them. I don't really talk to people much, though, so the answer is probably nothing.

>>609
What did you have for dinner last night?

610 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8302 12:54

>>609
Thai food and also sausages with a tomato sauce bolognaise thing
I had two dinners, because I always get thai from where I work, even I didn't ask for it or want it.

>>610

What is your opinion of Buddhism?

615 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8311 17:39

>>614
It's fairly groovy. Non-organised, advocates peace, stoicism, etc etc. It gets nutjob followers, but they're all harmless white hippies rather than the murderous nutjobs that other religions end up with. 8/10 would recommend.

>>616
What is the power balance like between you and your mother/romance partner/sex partner/figure collection?

Assuming you mean old fashioned pirates, not just people who download things illegally, sure.

Ejaculate in the Primordial soup

>>621
Hot dog or hamburger

621 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8313 04:45

>>620
It depends. Are we going plain hot dog and plain hamburger (no cheese)? If so I'd probably go with the hot dog. All dressed up, I'd go with a hamburger. Without cheese or some kind of near-liquid fat, burgers don't feel good to eat.

>>622
Alpacasso or Baby Wooly?

622 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8313 14:01

Alpacas are clearly the superior lifeform.

Would you rather have one ragged 100 dollar bill or five new 20s?

635 Name: i L_T`j : 1993-09-8328 06:07

>>634
The 20s. It's a pain in the neck to make change for a 100, and some bastards are thinking of removing the 100 from circulation because they don't like people being able to store wealth outside of banks.

>>636
Do you own any kind of safe or lockbox?

636 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8329 19:35

What kind of stupid fucking joke is this? No.

>>637
Would you rather have one pristine 100 Great British Pounds note or 10,000 smutty old stinky Great British One Penny Pieces from 1981?

637 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8329 23:11

>>636 I would take the 10,000 pennies, bury them in random locations at the beach, then watch a man with a metal detector think he has found treasure.

Japanese or Scottish whisky?

639 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8330 12:10

>>638 I've never tried Japanese whisky but I drink Scottish whisky all the time. My friends think I'm some kind of connoisseur but I don't really know much, I just like the taste. Funny story, one time I was at the pub with my friend and I asked for a Whyte & Mackay with a wee bit of ice. We played some pool and I was savouring the taste thinking "I don't care if this is entry-level potato water, it doesn't matter what whisky experts say you should and shouldn't drink, I'm really appreciating this on a new level right now". I finished it and asked for another whisky, and the barman goes "Whisky? I thought you said rum, that was rum"

>>640 What's the most disgusting thing you've ever drank?

640 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8390 20:33

The belly button is the cutest part of the human anatomy. Agree or disagree?

What are your experiences with crossdressing?

647 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8394 02:58

>>646 I let some girls paint my nails and give me a dress when I was 6. My dad was really angry when he saw me. I never did anything like that again simply due to a lack of interest.

If there were suddenly no social norms whatsoever about what you can or can't wear, what sort of clothing would you choose to wear?

652 Name: (iœjΔͺͺͺ²iœj) : 1993-09-8394 21:05

>>651
I'd probably just wear what I normally do since I already have those clothes, but I'd look into buying those things the Arabs wear that look like dresses since they look comfortable. Women's dresses always have crinkles or other frills on them that I probably wouldn't like. I might just go out in my underwear if it's really hot, assuming public nudity is still taboo. Winter time I'd wear robes and shit over sweats since it doesn't rain much.

>>653
I'm thinking of using my food dehydrator to make tomato leather for sandwiches that I pack for lunch in order to replace fresh tomatoes since they are very moist and contribute to making the bread soggy if left for several hours in a closed and non breathable environment. Is this a good idea or comoletely idiotic?

653 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8394 21:30

>>652
Sounds good to me. It's basically sundried tomatoes, just without the sun. The only way to find out is to try it for yourself though!

>>657
Do you enjoy lighting fireworks?

657 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8398 03:56

>>656
Never have, don't see the point. They're such a pain in the neck to legally set up for a few seconds of light that are about as impressive as a screensaver, and there are much more impressive things if you're willing to go outside legality. Perhaps if I'd made them by hand or something I'd have some investment in the result.

>>658
Pen or pencil?

658 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8398 04:34

>>657
Pencil. It's more expressive and it's easily correctable. I almost never use pen.

>>659
I've been having trouble getting out of my house and going to work. The job is fine, I need the money, but instead of walking out the door I'll find myself doing things like pace back and forth trying to figure out why I'm pacing back and forth. Any advice?

659 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8402 00:37

Set a timer on your phone so that you can still pace back and forth, but only for a small amount of time!

663 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8402 08:26

>>662

I find digital much more accessible, but traditional is quite impressive to see done well.

>>664

Why is your favorite color what it is?

664 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8402 16:02

>>663
I like green because it reminds me of life, e.g. forests and grass and meadows, etc.

>>665
Do you think human beings will ever become a type I civilization?

665 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8403 03:41

>>664
See, it's such a nebulous term; each new would-be prophet of scientism has his own definition, it seems. As originally described, we've been there for some time now. But the more imaginative definitions, the one those preaching a gospel of "planetary civilization" and "technological singularity" would have us believe, I say absolutely not. These guys remind me of those guys who keep announcing new dates for the Second Coming... sorry, fellas, I want to live in a better world, too, but it doesn't just get dropped in our laps.

I hope I'm not the only one seeing how ludicrous it is to equate quantifiable figures for energy with "progress". We could expand data centers until we actually had to use planetary-scale energy (to ignore the definitions where all that has to be used on radio signals), but that's clearly not the transhuman robosocialist utopia these people are conjuring up (note that it's not those possibilities I'm specifically rejecting, only that human self-interests don't magically go away just because human needs are exceeded).

>>667
What does that even mean, anyway?

667 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8403 05:42

>>666
It means I'm referencing odd Flash animations from around 2200 September 1993. Ish.

>>668
Would this accursed September just end already?

668 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8403 06:13

There's no way you're going to get me to make a Green Day reference here.

Coke or Pepsi?

669 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8403 06:58

I like diet coke.

>>670
What's your favorite way to stay warm on a chilly Fall day?

670 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8403 07:08

>>668
I hardly drink either, so I really don't know. If you held a gun to my head and asked me to choose, I'd say Coke.

>>670
What would be your ideal vacation?

671 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8403 19:33

>>670
Exploring an interesting place on my own, relaxing, making fond memories.

>>672
Were you ever involved in a serious accident? How was it like?

672 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8403 20:40

No.

>>673
What's the best cereal?

673 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8404 02:43

>>672 Cinnamon Toast Crunch, the one they stopped selling in the US & you had to import it from Canada.

>>674 Do you feel like you already died and you are just living through your past memories till the point where you reach your death again?

Nah.

>>675

675 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8404 04:00

>>674
I'm making dinner! I'm starving!

>>676
Would you say you're easily spooked?

676 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8478 01:06

>>669
Wrapping myself in at least three blankets, not getting dressed, and not leaving the house.

>>675
No, quite the opposite.

>>677
On average, how frequently do you give/receive hugs? Are you happy with this frequency?

677 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8478 05:29

>>676
I give and receive only a few hugs per month, and they are perfunctory, more or less. I'd prefer to give/receive more frequently.

>>678
What cause is most dear to your heart?

678 Name: (iœjΔͺͺͺ²iœj) : 1993-09-8478 06:05

>>677
Anything that has to do with helping out retards. For some reason, when I see retarded people, I get pretty heartbroken. Particularly downies. It may be because I imagine myself in the position of the parent or someone close to them. The idea of having a child that can't correctly function on its own is really sad to me, especially knowing that once I'm old/I die, there isn't really anyone to take care of it in the way I would be capable of. You love it even though it's broken. I don't really know why I feel so strongly about it. There isn't anyone suffering from any form of retardation in my family or even the family of anyone in my immediate social circle.

>>679
Do you refrigerate your tomatoes?

679 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8478 12:56

Yes.

>>680
In your opinion, who is the cutest Hitori Bocchi no ›› Seikatsu character?

680 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8501 18:56

>>679
Of the main characters, it's obviously got to be Bocchi herself, although they're all strong contenders on the cuteness front. If we include minor characters then I would also seriously consider Yawara Kai and Oshie Teruyo. I couldn't possibly pick just one though; they're all the cutest in their own unique ways.

>>681
What is your favourite way of preparing eggs (i.e. hard-boiled, soft-boiled, scrambled, poached, etc.)?

681 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8710 04:42

>>680
Soft-boiled! I like my eggs runny and soft and nice, especially with some dark soy sauce and pepper. Soft-boiled eggs and toast is a traditional breakfast in my country, so I have that quite often, and it's always nice.

>>682
What do you regret the most?

682 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8710 08:54

>>681
Being a self-centered clueless asshole when I was younger.

>>683
How much have you changed since you were a child?

683 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8711 19:15

Are you out of touch?

>>683 I go out of my head when you're not around, yes.

Original rules, 9. Latest rules 3, plus the squirrel would be awarded a participation trophy.

Do you have a favorite inner sailor senshi?

689 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8714 22:58

A Puckle gun.

>>694
What's your favorite kind of tea?

694 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8721 18:58

>>693
Chai tea, but I think that barely counts.

>>695
What's the appeal of Rick and Morty? The punch lines all seem to be some form of vulgarity. Is it American humour?

695 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8748 11:03

>>694
I can't really say, it never much appealed to me either. It seems as though not just American humour but American media in general is mainly just sex, violence and poo. I'm quite sure there are exceptions but I can't name any high profile ones.

>>696
Approximately, how many real life friends do you have?

696 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8748 11:58

3 or 4 good ones, plus a fairly wide circle of classmates that I hang out with.

>>697
Have you stopped beating your wife?

>>698
Which is sexier: kneepits or shoulderblades? Please explain why in at least eleven words.

698 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8748 12:35

>>697
I actually adore a good pair of kneepits. The telltale crease marks of an extended kneepit are suggestive of a entirely bare pair of legs, and you'll only see their bent form in very few scenarios. Shoulderblades, meh, everyone's got them out.

>>699
Which is sexier: oboe or trombone? Please explain why in at least eleven words.

699 Name: (iœjΔͺͺͺ²iœj) : 1993-09-8749 00:31

>>698
Trombone because it has bone in the name which is a euphemism for sex. Oboe is just a clarinet crossed with the thing that alien played in the bar in Star Wars.

>>703
When the moon hits your eye, what exactly is it like, and how is it referred to?

703 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8749 22:25

>>702
As the moon approaches hitting distance, it causes an extreme, violent tide that submerges the part of Earth closest to it. This in turn causes extreme, violent storms essentially worldwide. As such, depending on its trajectory and speed, there's a pretty high chance you'll drown or be killed by debris before the moon gets close enough. Assuming you find a way to survive that, though, and manage to make it to the designated location, the moon will certainly have accelerated to such a speed that you won't have time to process the sensation of the moon hitting your eye before your frail body is completely vaporized from the impact energy.

This is referred to as the Apocalypse.

>>704
How should I break the cycle of staying up late, getting up late, and sleeping through most of the day when businesses are open?

704 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8750 06:02

>>703
Going a day without sleep usually works for me. Stay up late, then when the sun rises take a shower, get out of the house and try to keep yourself occupied until evening. Keeping your body moving and staying out in the sunlight will help revert your biological clock.

>>705
What's the best place you've lived and why?

705 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8776 17:22

>>704
Probably the place I stayed in my second year of university. Positives:

  • Spacious
  • Double bed
  • Bills included
  • Fairly reasonable price
  • Decent kitchen
  • Within easy walking distance of university and laundrette

Negatives:

  • Heating was broken, so it was always too hot
  • Downstairs neighbour was a bit loud
  • Wasp nest outside

>>706
Would you like a hug?

706 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8996 05:02

Yes.

>>707
How much candy do you eat?

707 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9013 18:13

Not that much. At most, the equivalent of one to two candy bars a week.

>>708
How long has it been since the last time you talked to somebody in real life?

How many different states/provinces have you been to?

709 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9013 19:30

>>708 I've been to 2 provinces of Catalonia, 1 in Australia, 8 in France, 4 in Belgium and 3 in the Netherlands. There are 0 states or provinces in Britain, but if you count counties, well, all of them I guess.

>>710 Where's the nicest place you've been?

710 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9013 22:41

>>709
The nicest place I've ever been is only nice because most people don't know about it. So if I told you where it is, it'd be worse off.

What was the last thing you bought at a 711 (or a similar convenience store)?

>>712
Are you comfortable right now? Why/why not?

712 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9015 20:34

>>711
No, not really, because it is a misery to cohabitate with the people in my area, but I don't know of a better area to move to.
At night I dream of a big sea-worthy houseboat and a lifetime supply of mittens so I can at last drift away and spend my days cut off from my species but for a satellite internet connection.

I like the J a lot. If we want to get exotic ت is really cute and happy. Of course ƒΦ, the mouth of many of our favorite characters. I guess I really like rounded open top graphemes.

I was speeding while drunk on a highway and missed an exit, I fucking smashed the break pedal trying to take it, but my car started spinning out of control. I hit the highway barrier and only manage to fuck up the front bumper, everything else, including myself, was ok. I use Uber to move around the city when drunk now.

What's the most wasted you've ever been?

720 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9082 01:21

>>719 I once took too many xanax on a Friday night and didn't wake up until Sunday evening. My own saliva stained the carpet.

>>721 Do you like vector graphics?

721 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9082 02:56

>>720

>I once took too many xanax on a Friday night

used to do that pretty much every night

SVG sounds good in theory but it's annoying in a lot of ways. I do prefer PNG over JPG though. Adobe Flash was vector-based, and look how well that turned out. Not well at all. But aside from that, I don't really care that much about image formats.

If you're drawing, it makes more sense to use raster graphics because then you can do more complicated images that look like actual paintings instead of a couple of lines whose only advantage is that they look smooth when you zoom in on them. SVG makes sense for icons or some logos or graphs or something, but that's about it. But the solution to pixelated raster graphics is to draw super high-res and then downscale for whatever site you're uploading to. It's easy to start with a lower resolution when drawing, but I think it's better to have a resolution that's too high instead of too low.

>>721
How often do you get drunk?

722 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9082 15:22

>>721
I drink alcohol perhaps once every two weeks or so, but only one or two drinks, so I never get more than tipsy. I've only been properly drunk once. My neighbour threw a house party, and my bedroom was directly adjacent to the speakers, so, realising I had no hope of sleeping, I decided I may as well join them. I was slightly feverous, didn't know anyone there, and everyone else was about ten years older than me. I ended up just standing around aimlessly listening in on conversations I had nothing to add to, and drinking every so often. The party pretty much ended around 3am, when I went home, threw up, and collapsed into bed.

>>723
What is your favourite and least favourite part of your own body?

723 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9082 17:27

>>722
Favorite: my brain, unironically. Not in a I-think-I'm-smarter-than-everyone-else way, but because I'm glad I don't have any serious mental problems. Look at Terry Davis, for example. He's a genius programmer, but he is hopelessly schizophrenic.
Here's an image of a schizophrenic person's brain compared to a normal one:

What's the most yak-shaving or procrastinating thing you've ever done?

725 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9083 11:57

Tell me, what do you think of airplanes?

727 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9083 18:50

>>726
I love travel, but I hate airplanes. Airport security sucks. Jet lag sucks. At least they sometimes give you alcohol on the flight.

Someone once gave me HORRIBLE advice for dealing with jet lag. "Don't sleep before the trip, just stay up the night before and sleep on the plane!" But the economy seats were too tiny and uncomfortable (and the comfy ones are ridiculously expensive), and there was too much turbulence in order to sleep at all! So I was tired as fuck during a flight across the pacific ocean.

>>729
Playing video games and watching anime.

>>731
Who are you cheering for?

731 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9084 16:32

>>728 I don't know about plot, we're all familiar with the John Carmack quote about plot in a video game I think. But the best writing (subtle difference) of the games I've played was Fallout: New Vegas, I think. It's one of few RPGs where I was invested and immersed enough that I sincerely had trouble and angst doing something I wouldn't do IRL. Especially in the expansions, where each one is based on one central choice, I had trouble replaying it and doing the other choices.

>>731 If the only music you could listen to for the rest of your life was the collected works of one single artist, composer, band, etc, who/which would you pick? Off the record, my "favorite" and the one I picked when a friend posed me this question are different artists.

732 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9084 16:36

>>730,731 Croatia. I'm not actually watching the game, but I hope they win. Fuck France.

And Tchaikovsky. Not necessarily my favorite composer/musician of all times, but probably the one with the biggest catalog with the best ratio of things I like to things I don't.
