Any stories of funny/weird/dumb things you did as a kid.

When I was ~9 years old I was at this summer camp. One of the activities was an arts and crafts project where we made custom CD holders. There was this one girl that I didn't like for whatever reason that brought things to put inside their holder, I guess they knew ahead of time we were going to make them. Later on while we were at a baseball game I stole their CD holder and hid it in my backpack. Like you'd expect they got really upset while I stayed quiet. When I got home I threw it into the attic and kept it there for years. All I remember being in there was a Shrek DVD. I still feel bad about making a child cry for no reason, I guess I can think of this as coming clean.

>I also want to say that there's no better feeling than searching through archived websites, it feels like scavenging some strange ruins for treasures. I love it.
I love doing that too. My passion was inspired by a dude who had this random online presence so every time I googled him I'd find some new site. So far I've found 2 sites he uses to host his art (which was just one due to complex reasons), His random blogs/abandoned social media, 2 abandoned/half done sites he made with his friends for fun, his open directory (somehow), his 3 random webcomics which have their own site, and by looking for the images for this post I found 2 forums he posted on. Every few months I google him again because it's like a jackpot were you get something new with each spin.

I have recently become unemployed and the jobs I have received calls back from during my new job search are asking me to take these cognitive ability tests.

As a kid, I achieved remarkable scores on some standard IQ tests, making me qualified for some "gifted" classes. Today, I can barely sustain the attention necessary to follow a set of instructions, let alone complete these intelligence tests.

I was wondering why people issue these tests, what merit they actually have, and how much preparation plays a factor in these types of tests.

I'm asking because if they are true, I guess I'm retarded.


The last thing I know about the workplace and hiring policies is whatever's on the mind of HR departments. I assume they do these kinds of tests to check if you're above a threshold of intelligence and to see how much responsibility they can give you.

>Today, I can barely sustain the attention necessary to follow a set of instructions, let alone complete these intelligence tests.

Yup, I think this is what they're trying to get out of you.


I don't like youtube videos about this kind of subject, but this video should I answer your question about how preparation affects the result.

Intelligence test can measure someone's problem solving capacities, but that's it. A lot of people seem to use those tests to evaluate their worth, eventhough it's possible to be a complete piece of shit with a high IQ or a truly selfless person with a below average intelligence.

That's my 2 cents.

Does anyone have trouble solving problems after a continuous period of solving problems? It feels like I can't think logically after working on a problem for about three hours, even if I take a break. Those hours also have to occur immediately after I wake up. Taking a nap helps.

I was thinking that my problem is related to attention and could be helped by meditating. I've never done it and I don't really know how, but maybe some of you have tried it before.

It sounds kind of woo woo to be honest.

>>5908 I would say working for three hours straight on a problem (assuming you're focused the whole time) is a pretty good feat! Definitely takes a lot of mental energy.

After that, it's completely normal to need a good break before going back to work. Not just going to the bathroom or drinking a cup of coffee in five minutes, I mean an actual break. Get out of your workplace and interact with people if possible for at least half an hour. Then maybe you'll be able to start working again. Probably with lower performance than before, but hey, we're humans. We can only stay fully focused a few hours a day, so take it easy.

Regarding meditation, if you want some legit stuff just google zazen or vipassana, but don't expect some drastic results. It may help you a little bit with ignoring distractions or keeping anxiety away, but it's not a magic pill.


yo hoes, Y'all women know how to make sandwiches right?
yeah tell me what to make, it's evening here and I'm hungry af
also poorfag choices please, like I have tomato, cheese, onion, sausage and salad but don't give me like pizza recipes ok?

There's a lot of bullshit going around the topic of meditation because it's being commodified by corporations and the new generation of self-help gurus who want to make a quick buck.

I started with the Tibetan teacher >>5915 linked but then moved to the Thai Forest Tradition because they are the most meditation-heavy school out there and have a lot of useful literature online, like the attached book.


I also recommend the Thai Forest Tradition, brahm has several youtubes and the books by sumedo and ajahn chah are really good. also The Mind Illuminated by Culadasa is really good if you want a book about purely meditation without all the theories surrounding buddism

I know this is probably a super common question but I have no clue how. I work full time and everyday my schedule is wake up, go to work, go home, sleep. I don't really have any interest outside of my house and anyways I'm a shy and anxious person. I've tried discord servers as well but its difficult to join an already existing social group.

The saddest (and most hopeful) part is that I know there are tons of people in the same situation as me. The problem is getting these people together. More than anything I wish to be around people that make me feel safe and not always on guard.

Watching a feeling or emotion closely will negate much of the effect it has on your actions. Pain is the best example of this: it is designed to drag your attention to the site, but once it has achieved this it loses its bite, only to reemerge as your attention wanders.
For other emotions if you watch for too long they melt into their noisy components, or unravel upon finding their cause.
You do not need to empathise with the sensation of another's feelings to relate. Treat them like the biological machines they are, with feelings as a sparse representation of an information processing subroutine.


I met all of my current IRL friends on the Internet, or through those friends. I joined online chat groups or hobby groups with lots of users who shared my interests, and then sought out people in those groups who lived nearby, and did offline meets. I met a lot of interesting people and made lots of lasting friendships that way. All of my roommates currently are people I met online or through online friends. I find it way easier to get comfortable with someone by talking to them online first, than trying to get to know someone in person. Then when you meet up you already know each other a bit instead of feeling put on the spot and like you have to come up with talking points super fast to break the ice.


posting an invite link to my discord server in hopes of branching out
we are an art and internet culture oriented community that is small atm

join and make some new friends


for me it is easiest to socialize at my job! but since you already brought up having a job, maybe try volunteer work?
also, tinder is sometimes okay for meeting friends! i met someone on there and we play games often.


Search for your local mutual aid groups and volunteer. All those groups would be happy to see new members, no matter how shy.

4chan is a pretty bad place to try to have a real or meaningful conversation, sadly.


File: 1590236370011.png (1.5 MB, 2018x1345, __shima_rin_yurucamp_drawn….png)

See, you've made a second interesting post in a row. It's just 4chan and places like these skewing your perspective of things.
It is true your post will sometimes not get replied to, but there's still a bigger chance of it happening on "slow"/comfy boards.

>reddit spacing

I probably do the same, for readability (and because it comes from Markdown, which I actively use at work, so I'm used to it). I have never even used reddit, but would be accused of doing so anyway.
But yeah, people on 4chan will often jump on you for that. Yet another way to make you feel "dumb".

>i know you probably typed something very interesting, but since nobody replied to you, i'm not reading it.

Now that's harsh… It's like it's only (You)'s that count there.
I often wonder why is it that most places nowadays don't care for valuable conversation? Sometimes when I join some public place I find out that a day of it functioning makes about the amount of content that one *post* on Sushichan has.

Fate has some great character designs and high quality figurines, obviously… I love the detail, especially on the dress.

How about making a thread on the newly created /otaku/ if you feel like it? I don't know much about figurines, but I'd probably want to look at them at least.

When I see Fate's character designs, I sometimes regret not being into it. Not to mention the anime series are usually well made, too.

>well made
High production values, maybe. Or really, no, it was pretty much just Zero and UBW with the production values. Apocrypha, Last Encore, and Babylonia were all pretty garbage both budgetwise and plotwise. Cute girls though.

how have you sushis been adapting to online college? for me it's hard to focus because all I want to do is watch anime and play games all day, and then I end up staying up until 6am and not getting enough sleep for zoom class.

Me to, cant focus, keep barley turning things in on time and asking for extensions, thank goodness this semester is done for me, im going to take just a couple of low key classes this summer and just take things real slow and easy.


I'm finishing undergrad as a music student, and this semester's been absurd. I crammed a bunch of instruments in my apartment and did my entire senior recital live online. I hope that we manage to get back to real life by the end of the year, I don't want to start grad school with no live music.

My computer is very old and it's constantly in danger of overheating whenever teachers decide to use webcams or share their screen. Thankfully I already know mostly everything they're teaching so I can afford to block all video sharing. Otherwise, this is the kind of feature I always wished existed. No wasted time commuting, classes in the comfort of my home!

It was rough at first, but due to site blockers+self help books.

Main tough spot is my power shut of and came back for as second out of the blue 10 minutes before my online final. I don't know what caused this, but I'm hoping it doesn't happen again


>No wasted time commuting, classes in the comfort of my home!
This is the best part for me, I never truly realized how much time I wasted commuting and just waiting in campus for the next class.

What are your coping methods?
I browse through various internet message boards posting my sadness away. It's becoming very unhealthy but it's my only cope my only friend. Music also helps me a lot with coping.

Get off reality for some time, maybe marathon an anine or something, try to compose the sadness into music, cry a little, think where i fucked up, improve, aim for bigger fish, repeat


I got a daki recently for that extra bit of depressive comfort. It's really nice, honestly.


Have you ever looked at other people in your age group and thought to yourself, 'what's wrong with me?'
Oh how I wish to be a kid again.

I want to turn back time sure, but because I want to do everything and end up doing nothing.

I haven't met a person in my age group that was so much more better off than me to feel like that, closest case I know it wasn't because she was successful, she just had skills I would die to have and seemed to have everything truly settled.

I guess I remain optimist, a colleague got a terrific job offer and all that went through my head was "I could do what he did, maybe I can get a similar offer too"


I'm 19 and young. Other people my age seem to be having so much fun and are full of energy, and, here I am, tired of the struggle already. I feel as if my ambition has been pulled out of my body and buried underground, and I am left wandering around as an aging piece of flesh. I just wish I'd find something that I could live with a stronger feeling for, you know? So that I wouldn't waste these precious days of youth. So I wouldn't feel as if there were something wrong with me.


File: 1581956221079.jpg (47.35 KB, 720x524, 1520901814007.jpg)

It's not going to get easier from now on and your brooding is (While understandable) is not going to get you anywhere, You will keep regurgitating the same bullshit over and over but time will just keep on marching as you stay in the same spot. There is nothing wrong with feeling like this but don't let it drag you into the bottomless pit of depression, The walls there are very slippery and there isn't going to be anyone to help you out of there.
The best way to get ambition is to become engaged in something, Same with passion. These things are earned and the best way to earn them is by action. Just do things and keep doing things, Anything is good. Shift focus from yourself into the world around you.


"Why does everyone get to experience their years of life properly, while I couldn't? I see. It's because everyone hates me."

That's what I told myself. Physically 17, mentally 13, tested. Will be uni graduate in a year, already landed a secure job in the government. Sounds good? Yeah, it is. But I'm unfortunately such an ungrateful prick who hated it all.

I envied all of my friends who got to be a proper teenager like a kid envying a toy. I hated everyone in my uni classes like a kid who just can't understand adults.

I never really got to envy or love anything when I was a kid. I never asked for toys either. I was always set up to be "successful" by my family. All of that piled up years later until I'm finally "mature" enough to see how are my friends doing. I grew to hate everything. I started to envy everyone else at the smallest things. I don't see any purpose in living because I can't understand it.

Really, what's wrong with me? I have such a good and well-off life, but I just can't grow to love it.
Maybe that's why everyone hates me. I'm such an ungrateful piece of shit, after all.


File: 1588920723607.jpg (80.74 KB, 960x1020, truxphmtapm41.jpg)

I'm 19 and I just look at all the other people my age in college and I can't seem to pinpoint why I am still a loner. I do talk to some people but we only talk about school.

Recently, we decided to share our instagrams and just looking at their feeds made me depressed. They can easily take pictures of themselves, they post about going to places with friends, post about their families, yes the last picture I put on my instagram was from 3 years ago…

I have no true friends and the one that I actually considered my friend, doesn't talk to me anymore because we just grew apart because life.

I don't have anyone and all I do is browse the internet. I have no hobbies, I don't play video games, I don't play any instruments, I don't play sports, I don't talk to anyone, I don't go out, I don't do anything. Everyday I think about how much I hate living. In fact, I think that's my hobby because that's all I do. I've never had any passion for anything. Even my major sucks. I won't be able to do anything with it.

I just don't know what went wrong with me. Everything I do brings me misery at this point. Why can't I be like everyone else?
