Whatfs a MacBook, whatfs a pc, the thought of hardware defined systems was archaic in the early 90s how are you people still entrenched in this bullshit. The system exists as a disparate set of interfaces guaranteed to have hardware backing them up somewhere over a good network and thatfs all the system needs to know. Agnostic of hardware and software version minutae and even general OS constraints the 9P passes through all equally regardless of actual hardware location. In the distant past the promises of utility were kept by having locked down systems of stable pieces, the plan9 lets these promises be fulfilled by having the necessities be allowed to be freely and transparently mounted from anywhere in the system even across different architectures and component versions.
Computer is over, the system has begun.

There's been a change recently in my perceived meaning of nerd. It used to be people who don't understand and are not understood by normalfags because of their uncommon or unusually intense interests. But now it seems almost derogatory, suggestive of extreme narrow-mindedness and of an unjustified sense of self-superiority. Maybe I never understood that word properly. Maybe I had some stakes in not understanding it properly.

You never understood it properly. Nerd originally came from eknurdf which is edrunkf backwards, as in a person so uptight that they are no fun to be around. Which while it applies to people who are studious, generally was just someone who couldnft have fun and took themselves seriously regardless of actual wit or importance.

Are we in a college bubble? Is it going to burst?

Sure, having an education sounds great and all. I'm glad I went to college. But at the same time, this level of debt is unacceptable. Maybe parents for future generations will only let their kid go to college if they're genuinely talented or studying a major that will definitely lead to a good career, instead of this gender studies/underwater basketweaving nonsense. Not worth the massive debt unless there's a return on investment. For many right now, there is none.

It's definitely a bubble, but it's probably gonna fizzle rather than burst. Student loans are a lot harder to escape than housing loans, so it's not like everybody can just suddenly stop paying them. They just keep paying less and less every year.

Taxes. The US has cut education funding dramatically since the 2008 recession (<a href="https://www.cbpp.org/research/state-budget-and-tax/a-lost-decade-in-higher-education-funding">Source</a>) and while it's slowly rising, they could definitely do better. The US can't afford to make college completely free like a smaller country such as Germany, but it could definitely do better. Even without raising taxes, the US could simply cut other parts of the budget, such as defense, to pay for education.

Without state funding, the cost of education shifts from taxpayers to students, which just makes the problem worse. Students can't afford to contribute to the economy because they're too busy paying off student loans. Colleges make budget cuts, decreasing the quality of education and producing less students who are good for the economy. The only people who profit from the situation are moneylenders, and even they might take a loss when the bubble fizzles.

That said, the belief that everybody needs a college education is silly to begin with. For many jobs, experience and training in a specific skill-set is much more important. But everybody wants to get a degree, leading to degree inflation: these days a bachelor's degree is practically meaningless unless you went to a big-name school, and even then employers still value actual skill and experience more than the piece of paper.

Speaking of unnecessary education, US medical students typically need to study 8 years vs. 5-6 years in the rest of the world. The extra two years doesn't increase the quality of the doctors, it just increases health care costs because we need to pay doctors more to pay off their massive tuition debts.

So yeah, these problems could be solved by lower enrollment, lower degree requirements for jobs, and higher education spending. But good luck convincing Americans to do either of those.

The problem with most of the threads here (aside from this one) is that they're just lists, not discussions. So many posts, but very little interaction between users.

Ctrl+v, google, youtube, etc. -- these threads have next to zero interaction, it's just a place where people mutually post shit that almost no one replies to or discusses.

And when you actually do reply, people think that's a problem. Then they bring up eternal september for the millionth time, which I doubt most people here were even around for in the first place. Weird board culture. Isn't the point of a text board to talk with other people? A discussion board should have actual discussions, not just lists.

I've felt that too, the list threads are fine but this is pretty much the only thread that gets any kind of actual interaction and back-and-forth between users. But actually I think the problem is that this thread has become kind of the catchall for anything that isn't listposting and trying to make a discussion thread on this or that topic ends with someone posting 2GET and the thread dying after like 8 posts.

375 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9095 00:22

Then again looking back through the thread list, most threads fall off in activity after maybe 30 posts at most.

Yeah, list or game threads are successful because it's easy to keep them alive. Discussions don't usually last that long.

We could start a [general discussion] thread but it wouldn't be that different than the current thoughts thread, and the arbitrary requirement to talk to other people rather than just posting random shit would probably cause it to die off. I think it's fine the way it is now.

I actually kind of like the list threads because it's like going to an art gallery. You're presented with the art with little-to-no explanation and you just have to judge for yourself what to think of it.

Yeah, right! People in the real world get upset over fucking tweets. You think people wouldn't get upset over actually hardcore shit? Of course they would! How about a movie where there's only one action scene and the rest of the movie is the character getting therapy for the ensuing PTSD instead of just acting "cool" in such a way that destroys any semblance of verisimilitude!

>>372 I don't think it's a problem not having discussion in those "list" threads; every textboard has random youtube video and wikipedia threads and the like, but I've always been fascinated by cpm pt`khsx and how you were able to trace an outline of what it meant in those threads. The content seemingly comes from disparate places, but at the same time there's a common thread, and by lurking you were able to understand and read the vibe of the place. You didn't need extra commentary to understand where the poster was coming from. The Eternal September thing is a bit tongue-in-cheek but is still relevant, and it's kind of one of the central themes of the place more than just one of the memes. Like that other guy said, it seems a bit like going to a wine-tasting club then complaining that they keep talking about wine!

389 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9095 07:41

I like the current thought and ctrl+v threads as well, because it gives a small interesting window into a dokyun's life. "Hmmm I wonder what they were doing that left that in their clipboard!" I like it when we discuss things, but it's plain annoying when someone gives an opinion with the assumption that what they're saying is really important and you have to care about this. Maybe sometimes I do agree but I don't want to hear about it here. It's nothing to do with being sheltered or blinkered, I can go elsewhere for talking about The Issues - there's a time and a place.

390 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9095 07:49

more like it's like a wine club where they only drink the same kind of wine for 10 years and then someone dares to suggest that maybe they should try some other kind of wine for once and then everyone gets mad and says that the kind of wine they've been drinking is the best and that there's no need to ever try anything else

I view posting in the current thoughts thread the same way as those monks that create intricate, painstaking Mandalas out of sand and then destroy them immediately. The beauty of posting lies in the transient nature of the posts, and the act of creation itself. Even if no one sees them, that's ok. The obsession with having someone read and reply to your ** obviously very important** post only leads to attachment, which leads to suffering.

Also, don't even try to pretend you're not also the "I live in the ghetto and it sucks and this is somehow the fault of the LIBTARDS" poster, your posting style is literally exactly the same right down to accusing everyone who finds you annoying of not having gone to college or flippantly dismissing entire posts full of paragraphs of counterarguments with "whats the matter cant handle different opinions? triggered echo chamber lOL!!!!1".

I'm sure when you're taking your schizo meds you're a perfectly fine poster, so just keep doing that, and remember that this is an anonymous board and not every thread has to be about you and your super important opinions.

411 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9095 22:12


>"why communism is super cool and DQN is a bunch of problematic racist neckbeards"

I think helping people when they're in need is good and I don't like when people post the n word or other slurs here. What's wrong with that?

>"I live in the ghetto and it sucks and this is somehow the fault of the LIBTARDS"

I do indeed live in an area with high crime, and SJWs are indeed annoying. I am not an SJW. I also like the environment. Someone posted the n word when talking about where I live, and that's not okay.

These things do not contradict each other. If you think they do, it's because you think people's views need to be a.) static and b.) exactly like caricatures of political parties.

Real life views aren't as simple as being 100% stereotypically group A or 100% stereotypically group B. People are also allowed to change their opinions over time. I am neither a republican nor a democrat.

>not every thread has to be about you and your super important opinions

I didn't make the posts about myself. I sometimes make posts about ideology or politics, but that's not about me -- that's about issues. You try to make it about me. I don't.

I am simply responding to posts other people have made, such as your post. Don't derail this thread, focus on me, and then blame me when you're the ones talking about me. I don't come up with a name for myself -- someone else calls me "iOS-chan". I do not post with a name or tripcode, nor am I interested in being known with a name here. I am not making this thread about me. Someone else (or multiple other people) are. That is not my fault. Stop derailing the thread.

Stop posting about me. That's not what this thread is for.

Lastly, you seem to think sarcasm is "schizo" or trolling or something. Sarcasm and satire are perfectly legitimate. If I posted something like "I just LOVE when people make posts like that" I might really mean I don't like it at all. That's not dishonesty, that's just sarcasm. If you can't understand sarcasm or satire, it's not my fault.

412 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9095 22:45

>>411 You are a literal stereotype, and the fact you actually think that "republican" and "democrat" are political positions is proof of the uselessness of trying to discuss politics with Americans.

And no, "sarcasm" is not being schizophrenic. Sarcasm is also not what you are doing. You seem to think that you're much more clever than you actually are. What you are doing is posting variously from one of several disjointed personae, seemingly without being aware of it later on when another persona takes over. As in literal schizophrenia, not just the meme internet one.

>several disjointed personae

I think you just don't understand that people's views aren't as simple as you want them to be. I'm not schizophrenic lol. And maybe you think I made posts I actually didn't make.

And touching on what I said before: exaggeration, hyperbole, jokes, satire, and sarcasm -- these aren't schizophrenia. People with autism or asperger's syndrome have difficulty understanding them though. So is that why you don't get it?

But as I said, stop derailing this thread.
