I've been trying to find a cheap used scooter/moped for a while now, but can't find anything (France). My only choice would be to buy new, and that costs at least in the 1300-1400 euros… a lot more than I can afford.

Scooters are definitely cool, though.

I think you'll really enjoy it once the ball starts rolling. Starting something new is always kinda spooky, especially when you're in a leadership role. Once the first few minutes goes by and you get a bearing of where you are and where you're going you'll be to busy doing stuff to worry.

Good luck when the time comes!


This tuesday a new teacher gave us a class (wasn't bad), yesterday another older one gave a long summary of the same class because we unintentionally misguided her -we couldn't remember the terms she mentioned while asking the topics he taught us-. Both have the same style of teaching and used the same presentation, made by the new teacher, but they said different things to teach the same concepts. Her class was much better thanks to her experience; it was more fluid, shorter, had better examples, etc.
What i'm saying is, you are still green so you'll miss a lot of things but if you enjoy the experience, with time and dedication, it'll work out.


I wish my brain were a little less broken.

I was watching some Cardcaptor VHS tapes i found at the thrift shop, which is already comfy(on my old sony trinitron no less.), and then it gave me the idea to bring back the 90's and get some inline skates.

but i also have this exact problem, replace coffee with nicotine liquid

I just remembered I have both matcha and milk. I wanna try a matcha latte. I have drank it at a coffee shop once and it was really tasty but I'm not sure it there is some secret on how to make it or it is just matcha powder and then milk.

It's raining outside and I am laying down in bed. I feel like a cup of warmth would be wonderful.


This recipe is bulletproof. And frothing milk with french press also works beautifully.


Hey that daily kanji thing looks pretty neat.
Could I bother you for a name of the software?


Thanks sushi! I'll check it out.

Sure. It's a widget that comes with the kanji app WWWJDIC. Here is the link to the Play Store https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.nick.wwwjdic

Does anyone here actually have a regular social life?

I chuckled
Also I hope everybody on here gets/ has gotten better in the long run.
Personally though, my social life is all online since moving away from my home town but it feels normal to me since i can play and talk to the same friends as always. Just wish I was faster at making new friends to meet IRL.


File: 1517771835549.jpg (221.88 KB, 482x720, lehlakh.jpg)

Eh, I mean, I think I'm better off than a lot of people, but really wouldn't say that I have much of a social life. I'm still in school, so I still have those relationships that are founded out of the fact of simply being near them, I wouldn't hang out with them outside of school.

As for people outside of that, I have a serious problem where I can be satisfied with hanging out with people only occasionally: not enough to actually become deeper friends with them. We may meet up for tea every month or so, but nothing beyond that. Honestly, it's almost more comfy that way, but I realise it isn't healthy… I never develop deep relationships.


Haven't socialised in well over a year now.


hi friend how are you


>tfw haven't had a genuine close friend in 5 years
feels empty man. Planning to pick up some more social hobbies to meet people and actually develop worthwhile relationships. For so long everyone I've dealt with has just been some random from work/school/whatever that I don't really care about.

Is it true that the only thing that matters is being happy?
54 posts and 15 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


>is being happy the only thing that truly matters
Happiness is a chemical trick the body plays on the mind to keep you from ragequitting long enough to reproduce. Happiness is pleasant, often useful as an incentive, but not meaningful in and of itself. Nor is seeking happiness the only incentive.


Nothing REALLY matters, but being happy feels pleasant so I wouldn't blame anyone for trying to chase that. But it's not that it matters more than anything else, it's all just what you choose to do in this meaningless existence.


So lets say you have a collection of facts that correspond to physical "reality". Everyone agrees on the facts but they all perceive them differently. What are these facts without any perception added? Absolutely meaningless. They only take form or hold any meaning based on someones perception of them. The interpretations are endless. In the end the facts couldn't matter less in comparison to people's understanding of them. Understanding is something that transcends physical reality belonging to the realm of the metaphysical - meaning understanding is unable to be understood. As soon as someone changes their understanding new possibilities arise and the impossible suddenly becomes the possible. The people who are considered detached from reality are usually just that - they are no longer perceiving anything outside themselves.


What is the highest purpose above all other purposes? How do you judge? Just ask yourself 'why?' over and over.. eventually you will get there.

If you believe in a right and wrong what universal basis do you have to justify your principles by? As soon as there is no justification, any and every sort of behavior becomes officially sanctified - it's only a matter of time.


>They only take form …
No, they're there no matter what. That's what "facts" are.
>or meaning…
you have no coherent definition of "meaning."
>What are these facts without any perception added? Absolutely meaningless.
Congratulations, you got it.
Someones delusions vary with what they know and how they've been told about it. There is no ground for preferring one to another outside of each of them themeslves. Because meaning does not exist.

Years of isolation and being alone have made me a very insular, closed-minded person. I have reched the point where I deleted online friends after I discovered that they harbored views or acted in ways I considered bad or not ideal.

It's like some affirmation action towards self-purification, 'splendid Isolation', Japanese Sakoku or a middle kingdom mentality. I know that this means I'll have no friends whatsoever but I can't consciously make myself more open and accepting because of the following logic:
>these people do bad things
>you are a good person
>Why are you associating with bad people?
>Remove them!

Smokes weed? Is gay? Watches shows on Netflix instead of torrenting shows? Fringe political views? Enjoys Rick and Morty? Cut all ties and forget about them. Even if they exhibit only one of those traits. I kid you not. I've reached this stagnant and ossified personal belief system that's so rigid I can't socialize anymore. An admixture of fear of the unknown and fear of being influenced or manipulated has made me unable to socialize, especially online, which is ironic since I consider people on small imageboards to be the most interesting people I could meet.

It is not inner peace you are searching. What you are doing is running away from things that remind you of an unpleasent reality that better not exist in your mind. This botched version of stoicism is just fear winning against other feelings and when there is nothing left to fear "harmony" will be achieved; except it never will, this slope goes on forever.
At least try stoicism, the logic behind it is not running away and convincing the walls.
Also, you went out of your way to create this thread that seemingly has not point to wave a banner. And you are not selecting those to socialize but those to avoid (everybody).


I do the same as you, OP.
I'm not gonna judge if you're really good, but thats our difference: I'm fully conscious i'm not a good person.
The thing for me is that i don't feel interest in most people, they offer nothing new to the table, and theres still the fact that i'm almost a cultural alien because i don't follow news, don't follow mainstream tv shows, musics, books, video-games. I don't do it because i feel superior, i just have different tastes.


It's okay you just don't like to challenge yourself with ideas you don't like. It's part of the culture of echochambers that we live in now. Why would anyone want to have their beliefs challenged if it makes them feel uncomfortable? It makes sense right? Just know that you will never grow as a person if you never have to defend your own thoughts. If your beliefs are so fragile that just being friends with someone who slightly disagrees with you on how they watch movies is enough for you to cut them out of your life, then clearly you just don't want to justify what you think or think critically of your own ideas in any way. Well I say your own ideas but it's clear that you have not come to these conclusions yourself, you've been told what to think and you've never questioned it.
You cling to notion that your ideas of "good" and "bad" somehow override everything else, but as someone else said it seems you're just defining "bad" to mean "things I'm not".
>fear of the unknown and fear of being influenced or manipulated
meaning you've never had to think for yourself and you think it's scary. Perfectly understandable, it is scary, but know that this makes you far from a Good Person.
>removing volatile factors internally (inner peace) and externally
THIS IS NOT INNER PEACE THIS IS COWARDICE. Inner peace would be having examined your own belief system so thoroughly that you are not scared of having someone challenge that, while also being willing to change your ideals when you find new information. You have simply settled on an ideology that makes you feel superior for no real reason, and then you run away from anything that questions your thought process.
I can guarantee you that if you weren't born as someone who benefits from the status quo you would think very differently.


>I can guarantee you that if you weren't born as someone who benefits from the status quo you would think very differently.
That hits home.
Nobody in your life will tell you this. You have to find it our for yourself through one of the many different roudabout ways, so be glad this came rolling (haha get it?) to you on silver platter.

Besides, flat is justice.

>>2300 here. Between work being busy and me breaking my collarbone, I fell out of habit of drawing for a while. That's changing, however, now that I have a drawing tablet!

I have to say, drawing with a tablet is a lot easier for me than drawing traditionally, if for no other reason than because I'm much less worried about making mistakes thanks to being able to undo them or perfectly erase them.

I'm thinking of drawing some comics myself, so I'm very curious to learn more about how to do paneling well. Do you have any resources you'd suggest, or should I just pay close attention to comics I like and try to glean information from them?

BTW excellent work sushi rolls; keep up the good work and keep posting~


As I said, I'm just a passionate reader and can't draw. Everything I know is from hearing and reading things from various people who do draw.
All I can suggest is experimenting with your storyboards before "inking". Analyze your structure like I did, try placing some stuff a little differently, see what sticks. When reading try and analyze pages that really click with you and that feel off. Try and look if the people you like talked about how they draw, maybe see some livestreams (Pixiv recently introduced streaming; I enjoyed watching MiA's Tsukushi and just now Tadataka_k. OPM's Murata famously streams, but I'm not sure you can glean much from him)
Eventually, you'll probably just have it in your hands and will be able to skip any prep and draw great from scratch. You'll develop your own flow, trying to see what others do won't matter in the end. It's all about practice.
Or so I've heard.

I haven't been feeling any big effort stuff recently. Any attempt to force it left me with a blank canvas and frustration. I kinda want to play around in sai a bit because I've never got too into it but I guess that will have to wait for now.

I've played around on oekaki a bit though, it's nice making a few small messy drawings with others.

I've been using a tablet for so long now that traditional is too much pressure and I'm always too scared to do it.
I like that I can just throw something out with a tablet and erase until I decide "that looks right".
Sometimes I draw lines like 20 times until I just get a lucky one.

Hey sushi, how are you all doing?

I recently got myself a gig at the Nikkei Center where I study Japanese to teach a modular origami workshop (pics related, it's what I do!) and it is my first teaching job.

The environment is going to be super chill and I actually am going to serve tea while we work. I am really pumped.

This will be my first experience in a teaching job, so do you guys have any advice/stories/techniques?

Jews did it desu.


Not sure if it's too late to get this thread back on track but that sounds like a really cool job! The only kind-of-comparable thing I have experience with is handling children (assuming you'll have those in your group too?) at craft nights at the library I used to work at. One big thing I learned there (that probably applies to adults too with origami) is to be prepared for some students to get frustrated when thy hit a roadblock, and be ready to work with them to get past the problem in a way that helps them do it on their own in the future instead of getting stressed. Keeping things light and encouraging can help out a lot in those situations, which might all be common sense, but I found it helped to remember that they weren't really mad at me or anything.



Thank you!
Apparently the class will be 20 something people. I'm a little intimidated because even if they are adults (or at least teenagers) they are probably coming to the class with zero experience, so I am teaching them from absolute zero. As in, here is how you fold in half, here is how you make a waterbomb base, etc.
My biggest worry is how to handle when certain people get confused while others understand super fast. Should I direct everyone's attention to the front and explain the thing again? I feel like judt concentrating in one or two people might make the rest of the class get distracted.


I unfortunately don't have a great answer to that, but I found that I had to feel it out. If things were going smoothly overall I could stop and explain for a bit, but if there had already been a lot of lecturing or people looked bored I would try to either go over and help the confused person catch up while others were doing the next step, or ask someone nearby who was doing well to help them (as long as that didn't seem condescending at the time and the other person looked like they could manage it without also falling behind).

I'm not a trained instructor by any means though! My main job wasn't working with people, I just helped out whenever we had our event nights. That said, if all else fails/a student is having trouble with every step, maybe you could help them at some intermission, if there's anything like that? Or at the end of class if you both have time.


Quick learners don't need/want as much attention, and some of them will help fellow students without being asked to. Don't ignore them, but don't worry about them. Hell, some of these people will be skipping ahead.

Happy for you, OP.

I love stargazing. In winter you can have marvelous views at my place. My favourite constellation are the Pleiades. Follow the Orion belt upwards until you see a faint cluster, forming a tiny trapezoid in the night sky.

They where the first thing I could spot easily as a kid, besides ursa major and orion. I named them "cash register" at the time. There are no particularly bright stars in it, granting this constellation a sort of gentle characteristic and the charm of a hidden treasure.


I loved to do it as a kid. While watching, my aunt would tell me stories about civilizations on distant planets, aliens, supernatural stuff etc. Now I'm a little shortsighted, so stars only look like bright blobs on the sky. On the rare occasion that I wear glasses, I get surprised by the view of stars in HD.

It's tolerated so long as things don't devolve into political banter / racist shit slinging / meme magic hullabaloo & all that sort of stuff.

It's preferred frogposts go in >>>/pepe/.


>tfw live in a small ruralish town
every time I go outside on a clear night I love looking up at the stars. It's not the best viewing you can get but you can still see the solid band of stars through the middle of the sky. It's so rad.
It's well worth it to wear glasses for stargazing. You can see so much detail.
