Do you have a neat web community or chat group you'd like to invite people to? Maybe want to drop your messaging handle and strike up some conversations? Do it here.

Chat/community/personal ads are no longer allowed on the rest of the site, except maybe on /hell/.

Important Note: This doesn't mean that you can't talk about communities or chat groups. You could, for example, have a thread where you ask people about web communities they visit. You just can't open your thread with an advertisement.

One post per service please! Duplicate ads may be deleted. This especially includes discord links. To make a permanent discord link, click on instant invite, go to advanced settings, and change the expire time to never. Dead links suck. If your discord link expires, your post will be deleted and you may receive a short warning ban.

Where would you like to live sushi?

I would like to live in a cozy wooded area around 30 minutes away from town. I'd like a greenhouse to grow vegetables and herbs somewhere on the place too.

the inside would have to be hella comfy. Maybe a small A-frame style cabin? I'd like to have a firewood stove as well. As well as plenty of space to store my books!

What's your idea of cozy livin'?

>4 is awkward.
>Too little space.
I live in the equivalent of 4 or 5 right now. It is horribly cramped, and i have barely any room for anything. Just getting into my desk chair is a bit of a challenge since there is hardly any floor space next to my desk, and getting into my closets is a bit fiddly too.

I'd like to live somewhere where the air is dry. I live near the equator so it gets pretty bad to even step outside during the summers since I am asthmatic.
I'd like to experience somewhere where it gets really cold too, with snow and ice and all the terror of it. I believe it was Melville that once said to be comfortable one must be uncomfortable as well.
I would live in a little house and be part of a little village too. Maybe a couple of friends would be there I could chat. Sure, I would lack some modern amenities but at least I could talk with someone who also needs company.
Maybe I could invite them over. I'd make a nice stew or roast and we could eat it together.

And when it did freeze over, I could enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate and a fire running in the fireplace.
And when it turned to spring or fall, I could take a walk, watching over time as flowers blossom or orange-brown leaves fall.
I would spend the rest of my days painting and tending to plants without a dollar to worry about.

I'm always brought back to reality though. Maybe it's hopeless romanticism. But hey, a soul can still dream. :)

I'd love to live secluded in the woods with a group of people. A self sustaining community that depends on each other. The homes would be small and efficient; unneeded things aren't kept and important things are packed together. Amenities would be communal, does each house really need its own kitchen? Instead food is cooked by everyone, for everyone.

The houses themselves would be build into the earth in one way. Partly because this has some advantages and partly just because I think it looks cool.


Well, Switzerland and Scandinavia mostly fits your bill, except for the lacking modern amenities bit, but their towns are small enough that you could realistically get to know all your neighbors in the area.

i lost the independence/freedom of living by myself due to financial issues, as a result had to move back with parents
on top of that, my relationship broke off because i am a toxic person to keep around
now i'm just attempting to piece my life back together after regressing for a bit
i want to become a better person
soon maybe i can run away with a plan if things work out
i like to go for long walks in early morning & late night, it helps keep my mind off issues
maybe i will post a pic of a particularly "scenic" or rather interesting area here

I hit 31 this year, have had a family for several years. Grew up and still enjoy chan culture yet somehow I've become trapped in suburban normie hell. It's a weird sort of loneliness. Anyone else know this feel?

You're only as young or old as you let yourself feel, roll. Only to a degree of course, but it's something I find helpful to remind myself of as I get older.

I'm 63. I started programming in the 1970s and consider the internet my territory. I was writing web browser stuff (in machine code, for custom hardware) in the days when almost nobody had a home computer. I find it strange that youngsters think I don't belong on the internet because I must be too old to understand it.


Don't think I've seen someone admit to being 50+ on an imageboard before. What interest you in imageboards, especially this one? Since you've been on for so long, what are the most surprising trends you noticed in the +30 years of the internet?


I'm late 20's with no job or children. I don't think 31 is old at all for imageboards. There are definitely a decent amount of 40ish people around too.
Honestly I find city people much easier to talk to. I don't really like the culture of most chans, but I like the sushi rollymity and hearing strange/different viewpoints that I would never see otherwise.


File: 1593994188158.jpg (114.15 KB, 614x466, Olive-oyl-lilsweetpea1936.jpg)

"Admit" to being over 50? Did you really mean that? You know that 'admitting' to something means accepting that it is wrong.
A bit like 'confessing'. You're trying to paint me as the villain.

It will not come as any surprise to you at all when I say that we had innocent hopes that the internet would lead to some sort of science fiction utopia where everybody was clever and good. In the early days, corporations and political pressure groups didn't know anything about our international, electronic communications. We thought, for a brief while, that we were the vanguard of a technologically sophisticated, dogmatically immune class of techies whose time to rule the world rationally had come. We were, of course, children of our time. And tragically mistaken.

I might address your more biographically nosy questions in my next, alcohol influenced essay. Or not; perhaps its your turn now.
Now you write something.

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 barely ever think about it. I am inclined to believe in God, but I don't really care much what's his or her nature, name, appareance, or anything really. I just think he (for lack of a better pronoun) /is/, but I generally despise religion. I think they are coercive and defeat the purpose of religion in the first place. They make people hate each other and do damage to one another. You'll perhaps argue it does not, but experience shows otherwise. I don't think God cares if I eat carrots. Yet followers of religion will constantly nag you about almost anything. I think religion is like pop science while true spirituality would be the actual theoretical physics in this analogy.
But every time I think of God I cannot help but be overwhelmed by my sheer ignorance on the subject. So I blithely forget about him in my day-to-day , and generally about anything that I cannot comprehend. Sometimes I wonder why some people seem to /need/ a religion and actively look for that kind of stuff. In my case the same drive is directed to mathematics, numbers, geometry.

tl;dr I believe there's some god but who cares and religion is s***.


The phenomenon you're talking about has as much to do with our modern culture of individuality trumping all as religion itself, though I won't deny the power structure of organized religion can make it pretty annoying to 'hermit' spiritualists.

One of its historically important roles was as a unifying force by basically giving people a prebuilt, fairly robust moral framework, which is why Westerners tend to think of eastern philosophy schools as religious even when they explicitly have nothing to do with the divine or mention it only tangentially; it's not really because of the usual "religion and philosophy are the same thing there" because they were the same thing in most of the world during that time period, see the boom of Christian and Islamic philosophy. You could argue that allowing people to build their own morality is more important, but you could also say that most people aren't capable of doing that coherently and that if they did you'd end up with a chaotic society where nobody agrees with anyone else's morals.


I believe that if a god does exist, all records of its existence have been wiped and replaced with false prophets and texts. And that if that god does exist, it is indifferent to mankind's existence and survival altogether.

But I kind of agree with you here. It's not that I wish to have faith in a god of some sort, but rather just someone I can turn to for reassurance whenever I need it. Someone I trust to that extent, who'll be able to guide me through my worst days.


I am christian. The hardest thing for me growing up in protestant circles was reconciling my lack of emotion with my faith. Everyone around me had a conversion story, or stories of repentance and feeling the spirit or whatever. I never had that and it caused me a lot of guilt. But I always felt compelled to believe.

Then as I grew older I saw those same pious people fall away from the church or turn outright against it, sometimes with the same zeal with which they defended it!

Then I read some theology and learned that faith is actually supposed to be more fundamental than just your "feeling" or your "zeal". Then I started reading the bible as an adult and thinking about the people in it as humans rather than heroes, and realized most of the time they probably felt pretty shitty about life rather than filled with rapturous joy.

Then I was diagnosed with depression and learned that it was normal for me not to feel much emotion. Now conversely I have much less guilt about my faith, even if I feel like shit most days.

tl;dr i learned faith is more than your feelings



>but you could also say that most people aren't capable of doing that coherently and that if they did you'd end up with a chaotic society where nobody agrees with anyone else's morals

Have you looked at our world at present?
Anyway, I do come to realize that most people are tools, unwilling to think for themselves and instead defer their decisions to their society or some hierarchy. On the other hand, as per the previous statement on deferring to the culture, this also means that without a hierarchical structure, a society develops a moral (perhaps even spiritual!) code of it's own in a sort of grassroots manner. This is mostly transmitted via oral tradition and kept alive in the idioms and sayings of the common people. It is believed the Daodejing came to being as a compilation of common wisdom of the ancient people of china, for example.
As for eastern religions, well buddhism I don't know in depth, but so far hasn't seemed very harmful for me. I am interested in the scriptires from India (Vedas), but the only contact I've had from them isn't hasn't been very nice. I me n those Hare Krishna people. Though what they have to say is quite beautiful, they fall into the same patterns mentioned in my other post (that's where the carrots comment came from, actually).
Generally it seems like such structures create an unhealthy form of competition and hierarchy that take the focus from the actual intended goal of spirituality and into the social structure itself. One is left not talking to god, but trying to look well in the eyes of the fellow followers.
That and trying to differentiate oneself from the /others/ who hold some other belief, or being coerced to follow habits (even in clothing and diet) which are not germane to the spiritual path but are proper of the particular religious society one engages in, and not those that can be identified with the "opposing" band (we're at the petty little game of the flags here, not unlike politics or soccer teams or linux users)
But everyone's path is their own I understand, I just wouldn't touch religion with a 10 foot pole.

Woops. Ignore this post if it exists, I pasted the wrong link. Not sure if it does, so I'll repost what I wrote already.


Miru Tights. It's a wholesome short series, I had lots of fun watching it.

The author's suddenly started making a very sweet web manga, which might be nearing its conclusion soon.


I have never liked the way Yom colors legwear. They feel unwashed rather than worn.

>If he could think of a good story, that is.
Subplot 1. - Maid in a mansion needs to go out run her errands. Due to plot reasons, the chaffer can't get the car to work and/or public transportation is compromised, so the maid takes off her heels, puts on her old sneakers, dusts off her skateboard and glides through the back streets of the city.

Subplot 2. - Attractive mature maid tutors the rebellious botchan of the manor. He fancies himself a pro skateboarder but he sucks at it. The maid gives subtle but sharp input on his skills and he improves his moves. At the end of every segment, when the maid catches herself alone, she executes flawlessly whatever maneuver her botchan was trying to do.

Subplot 3. - An elegant perfect maid who carries herself with dignity and conducts her tasks with rigor stumbles upon a skateboard. She has never rode one in her life but having had years of practice at maid school conditioning her balance and posture with some ballet on the side, she easily maneuvers herself on top of the skateboard. Completely oblivious to the world of extreme sports and skateboarding, the maid figures out various ways to make her new tool useful in her daily life, to the amusement of her elderly mistress.

Uniting thread:
the Xtreme tournament takes place at the end of the season. As time approaches, maid 1 enters the competition.

Botchan is too young to participate so he watches with maid 2 by his side, who entered the competition on a whim. Hi-jinks ensue as she tries to keep her skateboarder persona and her professional maid life separate but tit grows difficult as her performances catch the admiration of her botchan. In the climax, with no time to change, she reveals her identity and takes to the skate park in her maid outfit.

This is a topic I have never really seen talked about on *chan sites, which seems odd to me.
I personally enjoy the art of graffiti as well as the act, small time at least. It's a good combination of urbex and (sometimes) skating. Nothing beats rolling through the city catching tags and exploring places you wouldn't otherwise explore. Just like skating, you will never look at seemingly mundane parts of your city the same ever again.


Someone fund this anime at once.
No jokes, I really enjoyed that, it would make a great story!
