I used to be that way until I started having to pitch in for college. Mostly, it's a phase and you eventually start buying things from series you really want to support. For those things, I have a large wall shelf to display figures and stuff on and I occasionally rotate the items.

By the way, saving is a good idea. Do it or you'll regret it later.

Otaku? (11)

1 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-07-07 22:42 ID:oBQwmhXD

i know otaku is someone who likes the japanese culture, but at the same time, i am just not so sure about the exact definition/ criteria of being called an otaku. just how obsessed you have to be to be called an otaku?

2 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-07-08 03:48 ID:lK6cfZnx

It's for you to decide yourself. If you want to get technical (and weeabooish), otaku basically means nerd in Japanese. You could be a hunting otaku, a football otaku, an anime otaku, whatever. If your hobby is anime or manga, you are probably an otaku in American standards.

3 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-07-08 06:51 ID:p9rxMqrp

>>2 is right.

Weeaboo is the best term for a foreigner who obsesses about Japanese culture, the only term really.

Otaku actually expresses your love or fetish (non sexual) for a certain thing. So you can be an anime otaku, movie otaku, metal otaku, sport otaku, cook otaku etc. Though it has taken a bad meaning through the years because of the kind of people that have those obsessive love about things, so it can be considered bad in japan as bad as if you called someone a geek or nerd in US. Look here for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otaku

I agree with the person in post #2. You have to decide yourself if you are an otaku or not. But be careful it's not too flattering to have that name on you. Not only because of what other people will think but also for yourself. I mean that if you just decide to call yourself an otaku you may start subconciously doing things that will affect your everyday life, sometimes to the worse.

6 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-09-26 05:15 ID:CHu0ei/6


Is it Otaku if it's a useful skill or hobby? I mean, cooking for example. Maybe being a gourmet can be an otaku, like being able to distinguish different types of rice by taste alone, that's pretty weird and obsessive. But if you're a passionate chef, and make a living off of it, does that make you otaku? I always felt that in order for it to be otaku, it not only has to be passionate and extreme, but also, useless.

7 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-09-26 12:00 ID:MYvTbVlN


It just has to be passionate. If you can also make it useful then even better.

The reason why you think it should be useless is because otaku in order to do what they are passionate for, they tend to a little, eccentric, weird, strange and to neglect things that "normal" people do. e.x. not study in order to play mmorpg all night. Of course that doesn't apply to all otaku but it's a fact. Otaku also tend to know so many things about what they like and loose the knowledge of other useful things.

My hobby is stalking (17)

1 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2012-01-26 18:54 ID:QvUGbIIc

I like to stalk people. Anyone, really. Whether it be in my local neighborhood or on the internet. I'm very discreet about it, too. I typically communicate with my victims my making creepy videos of myself in a dark room with only the light from my lighter showing my face.

I'm also sitting in a car outside your house, stealing your Wi-Fi. Come say hi, we can get a drink or two.

I liked to watch a guy in the apartment complex I used to live at. He lived in the building across the parking lot and never closed his blinds and kept his lights on all night. He would stay up most of the night on the computer. I would keep my blinds cracked open and the lights off and keep an eye on him while I dicked around on the internet. I think he noticed one night when I tried to take a picture of him and forgot to turn off the flash because he moved out soon after

8 Steps To Becoming A Weaboo (5)

1 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2011-08-24 00:52 ID:DxCpqidw

Hello. My name is Jonathan Rail. I have a website at http://johnrealgamer.com/ Anyway, in all my years, I have seen a resurgence in Japanophilia, and many don't know where to start. I have compiled 8 items that will help YOU become a social reject.

  1. Addu the letter u to the endu of random wordsu.
  2. Use ランダムな Japanese adjectives in the middle of sentences, because people will know what you're talking about. It's just so kawaii!
  4. Use your mother's heart medication to get poorly made costumes for cosplaying.
  5. Eat with chopsticks.
  6. Reprace arr instances of l with r.
  7. Claim to be a Tru™ otaku, without knowing what an otaku really is.
  8. Correct ANYONE who mispronounces Japanese words, even though they usually mispronounce anime.

Check out my webpage if you enjoyed this! Happy Japanesing!

[Nighttime] Amateur Astronomy/Stargazing [Comfy] (14)

1 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2016-06-20 22:51 ID:1EgG1P3i

There are few solitary late night hobbies more accessible and humbling than watching the heavens. The beginner needs nothing more than clear weather and a notebook, while there are a plethora of gadgets and tools for the enthusiast. The newbie can take his time to learn the constellations and positions of the stars with only a free printed map and his hand to take accurate measurements. The veteran can hunt for faint clusters and galaxies.

There was a field trip on the Friday before last to a local observatory. We briefly observed Saturn through a refractor, but it was awfully hurried due to the crowd so I didn't get an especially good look or get to ask any questions about the equipment. Saturn's rings will be approaching maximum tilt for the next year, so they were declined by what I would estimate is 40 degrees. The seeing was total garbage: Saturn wavered and shimmered in the atmosphere, blurring the image substantially. The magnification was somewhere north of 200x

Last week featured several clear nights, but sessions were short and limited to confirming the observations of the week prior. Megrez has still not been spotted, and is likely too dim to compete with nearby light pollution.

8 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2016-09-16 15:12 ID:hJvr4tUq


Sorry, friend. I haven't stopped observing but I have been very lazy about keeping logs.

With binoculars I was able to split some easy doubles, make out some Galilean satellites and Titan near the oblong blob of Saturn, but found the weight of my rugged 10x50s cumbersome without a tripod.

Researching tripods and mounts brought me instead to purchase an Astronomers Without Borders OneSky reflector telescope. The light gathering power is more than 4x what my binoculars are capable of, and the included kellner eye pieces granted me either 25x or 65x magnification.

By the time I received the scope Jupiter was gone from the evening sky. Mars needs more magnification than 65x to begin seeing surface details, but Saturn's rings are distinct at even 25x and banding of the planet's clouds is apparent at 65x. I've ordered a TMB clone from China that should excel at planetary observation, though whether the 200x magnification will cooperate with the scope's optics and local seeing conditions is yet to be seen.

I received the planetary eyepiece and an "upgraded" finder this weekend. Briefly took the new stuff out and found that I'm not a tremendous fan of the Celestron Starpointer Pro. Using circles instead of a dot allows me to see the target, but head placement means the view varies. I'm on the fence about returning it and going back to a red dot finder.

The seeing wasn't very good, and Mars is too far away, but I do appreciate the 3 fold magnification of the new eyepiece. It's very rugged so I had to increase the altitude tension on my mount. The eye relief is also quite a bit shorter than what I expected. Looking forward to clear fall nights with an attempt to view Jupiter around October 15th.

I'm also hoping to split Sirius this winter, and hoping the planetary eyepiece will help. Sirius B is only magnitude 11, so I'll probably hafta travel to a darker sky site.

Astronomy would be a lot easier if you could do it from inside. Many nights it gets too cold to go out and gaze at the stars, especially during winter. That makes Percival Lowell a sad panda.

12 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2016-11-02 13:43 ID:hJvr4tUq

It isn't too bad if you're well prepared. I usually start by picking out 5-10 targets that'll be high enough in the sky at whatever time I plan to go out. Since I snowboard, I have enough kit in the form of wool socks, thermal underwear, and gloves that allow finer dexterity than most. Definitely doable for an hour or so

Checked out the super moon this past Sunday. The actual full moon was Monday, but lunar features are more pronounced when there's some shadowing. The ridges on the western limb near the terminator were majestic, though the seeing was at best 3/5.

I really need a moon filter. It was so bright in my eyepiece that light was still washed out in my observing eye even when I went back inside!
