One time at the start of a trip to Atlanta, I saw some people playing basketball, and they were still doing it when I got back even though it had been over 8 hours. There was also this little girl kneeling in the center of a tennis court with absolutely no one watching her. And then there's stuff like deja vu.

I don't know, some people just seem to follow stereotypes too closely as well. Does anyone else get this feeling on occasion?

Honestly m8, I think you're approaching things from the wrong angle.


What you see as mundane and banal, I might see (on my better days, at least) as an invitation for the imagination: Who is that person? What does he do? How did he get to where he is? What strikes me is that you're clearly a fan of people-watching, but completely disregard the nuances of the individuals you watch.

That's not to say everything and everyone's worth watching, but I'd imagine one would find himself much happier if he learned to sit down; observe, and appreciate the little eccentricities of everyday life.

In MGSV:TPP if the horse is D-Horse, and the dog is D-Dog, then Quiet is D-Girl?

Quiet trap confirmed.

I was thinking: "How did i started watching anime, and who introduced me to it?" Here's my cool story.
The dude was a security guard and the guards cabinet was right beside our shop (then a Photo Studio, now a growshop). While i used to visit gameshops, i loved one of them who had all kinds of anime games. We used to watch anime with the guard and the store clerk and it was awesome. He once came into our photo studio with a truckload of anime posters of the season like Evangelion which i still have.
Shit aside, his boss who was an old raggy bitch used to slave him, making him work on holidays and shit, blackmailing him of stuff i don't really know and shit. The dude actually killed her and hid her body into the buliding's dumpster for a week or so. Long story short, the Police found out and he's in the slammer now. I still have some Video Girl Ai VHS tapes from him, maybe when he gets out i'll give them back.

EDIT: Here's the news article for you if you wanna read it (in Spanish)

There's a lot of gay weebs. I don't get it. It's not as if anime has too much yaoi stuff, especially in cutesy moe anime, but there seems to be a huge number of weeaboos who like being lewd with other weebs, even if it's just being fap buddies. Not that I'm complaining...

Perhaps that could be because at a younger age, being gay meant that they felt disconnected from most other people because they didn't feel "normal" or so. Or perhaps they were bullied as a result of their sexuality, leading them to instead seek friendship and acceptance online, where otaku culture is more prominent. I reckon it's also the reason that the community tends to have a larger proportion of nerdy people.

I did not know fap buddies were a thing though, heh

And i'm sitting here in the college's computer room, from 10 AM or so until 6 or 7 PM because my place has the shittiest internet connection and i have to use the college one. I have 6 of 9 GB and UVI Softsynths can't put up a better solution than "Get a chinese pack downloader". Not a torrent (Hell, seedboxes aren't that expensive.) or another solutions. I PAID ALMOST 200 BUCKS FOR SOME SHITTY 90's SYNTHS, FUCK THIS SHIT MAN!!!

I don't know the full picture, but it seems like a lot of them are straight, but willing to try gay stuff.
Fap buddies are very much a thing.

I guess that's just a case of being more open minded :)

Why do people get so ornery about stuff that doesn't affect them?

I'm not even talking about anything serious: There are people on Reddit who literally revile selfie sticks, and think dipping (that silly fad dance move) is downright cringeworthy.

It's gotten to the point where I can't even tell whether it's a circlejerk anymore. Though IMHO, I'd prefer those to most of the cruddy excuses for memes produced by Reddit.

I am salty as shit about leaving the EU. I think even some leave voters are starting to regret their own votes.

Given that David Cameron used the EU as an incentive to keep Scotland from breaking away I can't imagine how infuriated some Scots must be right now.

As a student from the EU, I hope it'll be at least 3 more years before shit starts going down ;_;

IIRC, two years is the maximum length for negotiations unless the remaining members unanimously vote to extend it.

Realistically speaking though, you aren't gonna be left out in the cold; odds are you'll get a visa or somethin'.
