I don't even smoke cigs, only got them cause I smoke a pipe (as in, actual tobacco one) like once a month or less.

I gotta say though, you wouldn't believe how satisfying that model is to use. Nothing like a bic, not really like a zippo either. Sometimes flick it open just to feel how nice the mechanism is. That clunk.
Got them for like $5 each at an army surplus store.

What're some comfy anime series?

I'm relatively new to anime and am looking for something slow paced in story line, and atmospheric in terms of soundtrack/sound design or animation. Only ones I can think of are Mushishi and House of Five Leaves.

Nourin also has the same theme. You'll like both if you like nature themes.

Hi sushi rolls. I got thinking about Katawa Shoujo recently - say what you will about the game (personally I'm very fond of it) but I think it's really impressive that a group from 4chan came together to make something like it. It got me wondering - what would Sushichan make? Would it be a visual novel, or maybe an OVA of sorts? Whatever it would be, I imagine it would be something you could fit into the iyashikei genre. I'm not like outright suggesting we start something, I don't know enough about how many people browse this site or how many creative types we have. I just wonder if anyone else has had the thought.

Not a big fan of VNs to be honest.

A VN would be easier than an OVA for sure.
The key part is organization though. Katawa Shoujo did not get serious until a small group of people moved off 4chan and made their own forums to actually work on it.

My office sent all of my stuff home with me yesterday, and I'm working from home until further notice. So that's actually kind of neat. This is happening all over California right now. Is anyone else working from home or having their social lives or work culture change in notable ways due to coronavirus fears?

I'm going to be doing tech support calls and customer trainings in my underwear; it's kind of surreal.

Security is a big issue now that a lot of our customers have home offices. We've configured VPN for them, but since a lot of people use their own private computers to remote in, they get access to company resources from an insecure system (outdated software, no functional security applications).

If it was up to me, they'd only have RDP access to their work computer, and nothing else.

I think there will be a lot more cryptolocker cases over the next few months.

Currently in college. All classes have been cancelled and moved online. Half my classes were online already and most teachers found it easy to transfer work in an online format so I'm OK. The weird part is my toughest professor is pretty chill online.
My main problem is my time management is shit so I always spend to long or to little on my work.
What I can't take is that I'm stuck at home with my mom. I thought living with my parents while taking gen ed courses in community college was a good idea to save money, but no that I'm stuck with her I can't take it. She tells me how to manage my diabetes in ways that aren't possible and pseudo science, she nit picks everything (sushi roll you have your backpack on wrong, sushi roll your jacket isn't right, sushi roll your pajamas are ugly), and she can't cook (vegan cheese, yeast powder, and hot dog sandwich)

I've got a paid vacation starting march 17. It was planned earlier and happened to start exactly the first day of quarantine in our country by coincidence. Our cafe was shut down and everybody is home under quarantine, until further notice. I'm drinking tea in the comf of my house; people outside were panicking at the beginning, but it seems they've calmed down a bit.
That's it so far. Here is a picture of a blooming peach tree on my backyard.

When the economy tanks, more people go to trade schools or study STEM as opposed to art. Studying art is seen as a bad financial decision. What kinds of cultural effects do you think this has, when art and literature are seen as frivolous?

My mom studied art because it's supposed to be enriching, even though it's not all about career goals. I was basically forced into a STEM major for economic reasons. It has a very clear career path, but that's about it.

Or do you think some good things can come of it?

I personally find subjects such as art, philosophy, and music to be incredibly important to humanity. Quite frankly, a large number of jobs don't require a college degree, much less one in STEM. All it takes is a decent head on your shoulders.

In fact, working in IT I have discovered people who major in any arts or philosophy to be far better than someone with a computer science degree. It takes a lot of creativity and abstract thinking to be exceptional in that field. Not someone who was only ever taught how to follow a process and think in a straight line.

I think the average IQ of an artist has dropped because only passionate and stupid go into art. 70% of those in art colleges are often stupid because unless you got to the cream of the crop art school most art college are degree mills. A lot of people I see going to art schools are the 'I wasn't really sure what to do in college (I'm a slacker with no fore thought), but my friends said I was good at art (they usually are a big fish in a small pond, lack a grasp on fundamentals, and turd polished their way to 10,000 Instagram followers) and I like art (they like doodling art for their forgiving audience that lets them slack on their comics month on end, refuse criticism, and start shit. They would burn and crash in an actual job), so I'll go to an art school'. The only places willing to accept these types are degree mills who wont really prepare them. Stuff like pic related want to make art their career
The other 30% know what their doing and if they get into a top college they can connect enough so they can get the job they want. The other half art stuck on instgram/youtube as hobbyist who will have hard time getting professional work because they lack connections. If you look black comics, cartoons, and the like were a wild west, but now it's don't have '50 connections? Go away'.
The biggest effect I see is the 'starving artist donate to my ko-fi' will increase. As I said 705 of artist are stupid so they will suck at budgeting their limited funds, get fired from any real job, and refuse to listen to criticism. A lot of kids get high off their blind fanbase giving them commissions, but aren't ready when they become 20 and selling pic related isn't a good career choice.
This is all the digital art, and not the modern art community.

inevitably the whole trade school meme is going to self implode because the reason trade schools were so cheap, and trade pay decent, is because nobody was going to them in the first place. Now that trade school is starting to become a popular option due to redditors constantly shilling it, the pay will decrease and the price of the schools will increase because of the increased supply of students.

 No.671

To many people will cause a bubble to burst like the other sushi roll said, but we also can't forget what trade does to the body. Being a welder, constructor, or lineman sounds good till all that hard work- climbing, carrying, smog - catches up to you in your late 30's to early 40's. Do you know how fucked the economy and the children will be one they're stuck caring for for their parents at age 40? Also trade people are hit the hardest when the economy tanks if I recall correctly

Do art as a hobby instead, no one needs an art degree to do it

I thought that reading them may be good way to "deboor*" myself.
So what are you reading? Do you have a ritual that accompanies the act?
Maybe you found something extremely interesting in a publication and
want to share?

Lapham's Quarterly. It's a great way to get a wide survey of a lot of different writings that you'd normally have a very hard time finding in print. I used to read Cabinet, but it's not in print anymore, thinking about buying back issues and reading them as a supplement.
