At the start of this year I've lost the ability to feel anything, so now all the chances of getting to find that person are down the drain.

Planned obsolescence – devices intentionally designed to break over time – has been getting really bad in recent years. Everything is disposable. Even when hardware works, you no longer get software updates, which can make a device useless because it'll no longer get security fixes or support for modern apps.

And haven't you noticed how, when a tech company comes out with a new product, they shit all over their old ones? Like "our new device is so awesome and fast, and our old one was so clunky and shitty by comparison!" But then a year later, they do the same process over again. And you're thinking… you bought it because people said it was good. But then the company that made it said it sucks. They do it to get you to buy the same thing over and over again.

When will this stop? Do you think everything will be disposable forever, or will there be enough backlash to planned obsolescence that will reverse this trend so that electronics in the future are made to last longer? People talk about "the invisible hand" of "the free market" but maybe government regulation is required to stop it.

An example of this is how my friend's phone battery wouldn't last very long, so he bought an entirely new phone, even though I told him I could replace the battery if he bought one on Amazon (and they were really cheap).

Design for the expected lifetime, but set the lifetime at a few years by slowing down the phone with software updates and then discontinue updates and pretend that a new phone is needed to keep up with new software. And you can't install a new OS, or can't install one easily, because they're going out of their way to prevent it. And you can't replace the battery, or it's not economical to do so. Apple even tries to prevent people from repairing their devices. We're wasting enormous amounts of raw materials just to keep selling people new facetwatter machines that they don't need.

Imagine if all industries worked this way and people would constantly be replacing their microwave ovens, fridges, washing machines, televisions, stereos and electric toothbrushes because of made up software update reasons. But somehow the companies that manufacture these products have managed to stay in business.

I never even thought about that, but it makes sense.

Software is so half-assed today that Notepad++ starts badly chugging if the document contains non-ASCII characters, and the Playstation store can't scroll down a list of text without visible slowdown. Yet these same systems run games like GTA 5.

I'm a peaceful and squeamish guy. I even feel sorry for killing bugs
even so, I took an interest in the army and the navy (I'm not a yank). there's something so cool about their disciplined and hard life, how those institutions can whip people without courage, without a purpouse, a goal, or a skill into shape. it truly is a beautiful thing to behold. I like how they harden mind and body just so average joes can face the unexpected. plus you learn cool things too, from survival techniques to self-defense and trades
and hey, paying you to learn all these things is great

still, I can't even think about myself harming someone else, and that's the biggest downside. it's pretty much what they train you for, too. are there any other similar careers that teach you similar values but don't revolve around harming others? I was thinking about becoming a fireman or a park ranger. similar enough?

Martial arts teacher.
Not a very stable kind of profession, that is granted, but it may be fulfilling. You need a whole lot of self-discipline too, so if you don't actually have that to start with it's going to be a problem. Well you actually need a teacher first and that goes a long way actually.

I think that part of that hardness comes from being faced with the ultimate reality: death, and the fact that this death is not merely your own, but the death of your family, your progeny, your civilization, your fellow man, your brothers in arms, everything that your fathers ever worked for and everything you hoped to build for your sons. The ultimate reality is that all of that can and will die. I think part of what you're seeking (and maybe I'm projecting, because I'm sure as sushi seeking it) is to be closer to this reality. Everything in civilization insulates us from that reality, from the idea that things that we love can and will die, and that we can face that death in either a glorifying way, or a cowardly way. We can do what is required to prevent that death, by making someone else face it in the combat, even as we face it our selves in that same encounter, and by acquitting ourselves well, we accept and transcend this death.

You want to face and transcend the death, not just of yourself, but of the oblivion of all, and both the monastic and soldierly life deal with that in their own way, but I think that's what you're really after.

A lot of military jobs don't involve combat and a lot of soldiers never see action, even if they've been deployed during wartime.

Armies employ medics, orderlies, cooks, HR specialists, accountants, therapists, doctors, firefighters, etc. Combat training for these people is less about getting them to kill others and more about keeping them from being killed should the worst happen.

>>5565
It sounds like you're needing something to take the wheel in your life. A lot of the problems and depression of NEET life come from having too many choices and no strong pushes in any particular direction. The structure of army life might do you a lot of good.

The 944 is a great car. Good for a lot of highway driving and is set up stock as good cruiser and its pretty easy to maintain as there were a lot of them so parts are easy to get and despite not having a lot of room in the engine bay, they are pretty easy to work on so long as you dont try to race it everywhere and warp the head and valves.

I've got a 2007 toyota camry which is still in really good condition. It was previously owned by my uncle who only drove it to work and back (he also has a minivan which he used whenever they went anywhere as a family). The car was also kept in a garage for its entire life, so the paint is in really good condition. I actually just recently passed 100k miles just last month!

My dad has a new 5 series BMW, and while it's a really nice car I wouldn't recommend buying one outside of the warranty period.

Last thing I was working on was Dennis MUD, and before that Driftwood. I haven't had that programmer energy for three months now though, so I haven't been really working on any software projects. Usually I get interested in programming for about a month and that comes in 2 month or 6 month cycles, or somewhere in-between.

Mostly I've just been maintaining the server, and I also set up a server and website for a roommate a while ago who got kicked off of Tumblr for lewd artwork.

If you want to learn a programming language I always recommend Python, but lately JS has become a good general-purpose option too thanks to NODE. My first language was actually FreeBASIC, followed by C. FreeBASIC has a lot of cool old hobbyist games.

It's also good to know HTML and CSS so you can make your own websites. I probably end up using HTML more than anything else. You could also learn Linux so that you can host your websites and whatever services you want on a server you run yourself.

Fine so far.

Here in the British Isles, we've been having horrible weather. It has rained almost constantly for over two days now. It's June, for Christ's sake! Anyway, the winds have also been howling through the night and they blew down a few trees in my garden. Luckily, the house was not damaged, but the boughs are pressing up against my window. On the one hand, this blocks a lot of light, so I have to have my lamp on all day. On the other hand, it looks cool. As if I'm living in a tiny botanist-hermit's hut, tucked away in a massive greenhouse.

Do you have faith, sushi?

I have this old memory when I, as a kid, lost a precious toy. Asked God to help me find it, but to no avail. I blamed God for this misfortune and declared that I no longer believe.

Now I would say I am an agnostic, but I think I really want to find God. God, as someone to talk to, to confess to and to find support in. Lately I faced a lot of difficulties and praying helped me. I even made few liabilities, that I now struggle to accomplish.

When things go well I forget about my prayings and obligations, there is that thought that it is all my work and not some old dude above my head. Until now I went by this and it made me feel like a tiny, tiny man.

I really want to believe, but something is stopping me. Please, share something about yourself.

I believe in god but I don't pretend to know anything about him. I consider myself christian in culture at the very least, and I would say I'm a supporter of the church in gwneral. I like catholics a lot, they seem like they look after their own properly. Lots of denominations are too "open" for my liking.
Even if not spiritual, a religion may serve to keep a group working together and looking after one another. Thats the real reason every town would have a church.
If they start caring more for people outside their group then I think it fails at its most important function of keeping a society united, cooperative and secure.

I expect my views are very outspoken though so it's not like I'm going around telling people their way is wrong. I just keep such opinions restricted to people who ask or in the actions I take.

Well, the reason we think cults are bad is because they often turn out to be hotbeds of insane, immoral doings. The Jim Jones cult ended in a mass suicide; other cults only exist to provide a harem for an abusive sex addict. But, some fringe churches aside, the case is not similar in most churches. It might be different where you live; where I live church means a weekly meeting of generally friendly believers who listen to a priest. There isn't much room for a sex cult there.

>>5626
>I believe there is at least one other higher being, and that being is instrinically tied to this material universe (not apart and distinct from it, as with Judaism)
Interesting. There was a philosopher called Benedict de Spinoza who thought that the world was God. That is, all that exists is the same thing as God and he is not apart from the things He created. The physical universe is the physical manifestation of God and all the minds of people and animals are the mental manifestation of God. Sounds like you might be on to something similar.
