Let's get a Haiku thread going! Original compositions only. Make sure to follow the 5-7-5 rule. It doesn't matter if they rhyme or not. I'll start by writing a few.

- Water on a hill
- Flowing slowly down the slope
- Then it settles still

- Summer, late at night
- Fifty thousand stars above
- Warm and glowing bright

- Icy woodland breeze
- Whispers of the midnight moon
- Dance along the trees

What kind of sushi do all you rolls enjoy? I'm a fan of the cooked tuna and avocado rolls with a small amount of roe, but I also enjoy basic salmon and avocado rolls.

The local sushi bar I usually visit has a pretty nice selection at reasonable prices, with friendly japanese speaking staff and usually relaxing jazz playing, so it's a nice place to chill out and enjoy some sushi or a cup of tea. It's interesting to watch the chefs as they cook and make the sushi themselves. The only issue I have with the place is the artificial lighting which can get a bit irritating after a while. It's a nice feeling to step outside into the cold and go for a stroll around the city after a tasty and relaxing sushi snack, especially on rainy days when it's particularly dark and all the light reflects in the puddles.

What's everyone else's favourite place to enjoy some sushi?

well, lets be honest rice and raw fish are not the strongest tasting things. though salmon and tuna are a bit better.

as for me i\ll eat any of it but usually just the rolls with salmon and avacado or cucumber. drenched in so much soy sauce and wasabi it would get thrown out of the restaurant. those fried tofu rice things are good too. all eaten with my hands.

How about a travel thread? I'm planning a trip to Japan for early next year and I was wondering if any sushirolls had any advice or recommendations.

I'm interested in visiting Yokohama, Mt Fuji and Hokkaido but don't have any concrete plans just yet.

What exactly are you interested in? The culture? The tourist attractions? The history? Theres lots to see.

I went for about a month. I stayed in Kyoto for a few days and looked around the temples and famous landmarks which was nice, although its very surreal to see all these ancient temples surrounded by towering buildings full of salarymen.

After that I went to Osaka and stayed with some internet friends for a few weeks. It was nice cause I just got to see a lot of the "normal" stuff there. If you can Id definitely recommend some sort of couch surfing thing so you can maybe have some people to show you around to the local spots.

I've been kind of stressed lately so I'd like to take some time to chill I guess. While temples and shrines are interesting, I'd probably like to do something a bit more active or physical. I was thinking about climbing Mt Fuji, but I've heard it can be expensive.

How do you Sushi Rolls keep cool and comfy during the summer?

It's currently very hot where I live and I don't have air conditioning. This is making it very difficult to live the comfy life. I could definitely use some advice besides just waving a fan in my face all day.

Drinking hot stuff in small sips is actually better, because your body will heat up even more, if the drink is too cold for your stomach.

There is not much one can do to avoid sweating. Frequent showering and cold compresses might be options, but they require quite some effort.

One also should move as little as possible. OPs pic related.

I used to go running a lot. I remember in spring and summer I'd actually start getting chills if I ran a lot, but it wasn't anything bad. After running I'd feel refreshed.
Also it helps a lot with future summers, and it's good for you, you should try it.

Despite all the amazing shit on the internet, we take it completely for granted. We stay in their PC puddles like facebook or twitter. We laugh at memes made by chans almost a decade ago, and never come up with anything original ourselves.

The tight knit community of old just don't exist anymore, well at least not on the surface web. It's just become to saturated with common people who can't utilize the internet. People who don't understand both how amazing and untamed the internet is.

Let me put it to you this way: The internet is like the wild west. The IRC's, the communities you speak of are the cowboys of the internet. The people on facebook and twitter are the carpetbagging city folk who want to make everything clean and safe and 'civilized'. They've built railroads (facebook, twitter, tumblr) and pulled barbed wire (PC,moderated forums, web monitoring by gov. agencies) across the internet to make it safe and cushy for them.

You and me are cowboy apprentices who came sometime before the railroads and barbed wire ended the west. Soon the wire will parcel the land and the cowboys can't roam anymore, and the internet will be parceled out like ranching land to big businesses (google, microsoft etc.)

Enjoy chans while you can. We all know the regeneration of this community is not good, the userbase will dwindle and die out.

While it's not exactly positive, I don't think threads like these are a major issue, at least while they remain relatively polite and not toxic.

While I'm not opposed to having boards for such topics, I am kind of concerned about the site becoming just a feel good hug box.

That said, I realise some users might want to avoid that, so being able to filter /hell/ threads is reasonable too.

I don't think a feel good hug box is such a bad thing.
I don't want roll's to go feeling like they can't discuss their concerns. That wouldn't be a very comfy place…
But I easily get distracted by this kind of argument and spend my time stressed, researching, typing and untyping responses. I know it's my problem. But I want to just avoid it in the fist place, so I want sushi to be free of political/internet political rants.
The way the op starts:
>Despite all the amazing shit on the internet, we take it completely for granted.
Who the fuck is this talking about? Everyone I know loves the internet and want's to protect it.
>The tight knit community of old just don't exist anymore, well at least not on the surface web. It's just become to saturated with common people who can't utilize the internet.
I agree learning to program is a nice, transformitive experience, and users of computers and the internet today are not forced to do it. But it's also a lot of work, and I don't think people being able to use the internet easily is a bad thing. Maybe they can't utilize it like a coder with scripts and google fu, but a half step to great is still good.
>People who don't understand both how amazing and untamed the internet is.
Amazing yes. Everyone understands how amazing the internet is. Maybe they haven't studied EoCS, and learned how fast global communication can be built on top of base physical properties, but they do understand that technology is amazing.
Then 'untamed' and the cowboy metaphor?
This is stupid. The building up of technology and infrastructure like railroads is what made the internet possible. Infrastructure and easier living should be celebrated.
The rest of the thread is racism and hatred for the increasing connectivity that is the very point of the internet, before some rolls come to tell op that they are just wrong.
Actually, it's not even true that I want sushi to be free of political rants. I just want it to be free of bad, 'oh we are doomed for some reason' threads. If this was a researched biography of early hackers, or a discussion of the statistics and demographics of internet use then I'd be for it, but it's not. It's just weird fear mongering.

I agree OP (and some other posters) were being pretty dramatic with all the metaphors and might have underestimated how casual people view the internet, but I think the core of his message was a somewhat valid concern about the decline of some internet communities and culture.

It might just be nostalgia that lets this issue resonate with me, but it's something that I do think is worth discussing.

I do think there is still plenty of interesting discussion, but I would admit it's not as easy to find on major sites like 4chan, partially (and this is my own guess) because the userbase has become so saturated, so the 'chan culture' declined. But within generals and some less popular boards, as other posters have mentioned, there is still a strong feeling of community that I feel many people understandably try to defend from the 'mainstream'.

I feel like these fears account for some of the elitism that really flared up in the past few years, and led to a lot of the un-comfy xenephobic behaviors. The racism is pretty disappointing though, and isn't really funny when it's indistinguishable from all the other semi-ironic political crap that's everywhere now.

As much disdain there is for the whole idea of chans as a 'secret club', to some people like me it really was something special, and ceased to be special when it hit the mainstream. Again, this is just my random thoughts and experiences.

I wholeheartedly agree. While it might seem foolish at first glance, I kind of miss the old "sushi rollymous is legion" thing, minus the angst angle. It was a really unifying idea that permeated race, religion, and gender in the sole idea of being a united faceless entity of internet weirdos, script kiddies, anime and video game fans, etc. "Hivemind" and "groupthink" have pretty negative connotations but *chan without identity politics differentiated it from reality and separated it from the rest of the internet from its inception to somewhere around 201X.

I've been frequenting a few smaller imageboards outside of sushi and I have to say that interesting and active discussion these days is particularly hard to find. I'm not a fan of the 8gag posting culture that seems to be seeping everywhere where people make empty, angry/bitter/holier-than-thou posts that somehow are supposed to be regarded as objective truth because of that holier-than-thou attitude. Somewhere along the line, being rambunctious and wild on chans (mainly 4) turned into being an obnoxious, predictable bore who could only babble about botnets and rattle off canned "[x] is spyware/a meme/for freetards/etc." phrases.

I don't think the idea of the "secret club" is something to be looked at with disdain, and I don't think it ever was supposed to be. 4chan was an incredible place when I was lurking in '06 before Chanology hit; I had never been on a website like it despite being a YTMNDer before and thinking I was in some secret part of the internet while there. Both of those websites to this day have never been replicated for me in terms of sheer uniqueness of the userbase, and every day I'm a little more sad that the pendulum of life hasn't swung back to those wonderPost too long.

You guise ever set up a night for yourself and do what you love in the way you like?
Like, you disconnect yourself from the world to feel free for a few hours?
If yes, what do you do?
As for me, I usually buy some food I like, be it pizza, fried chicken or a pad thai or cook something really simple like nachos with cheese.
Then I pick a game and play as much as I want, and take regular breaks to listen to music, lurk or lay on the bed to watch Gamecenter CX.
I installed a small programmable LED light in my room, lately.
Dim lights make everything more comfy.

I procrastinate too much nowadays to be able to do this sort of thing very often. There's always something I should be doing in the back of my mind, although I'm slowly getting better at pushing myself to do stuff in the first place (and reigning in my expectations) meaning that I can properly chill out without feeling guilty more than I used to.

Usually proper nights off consist of watching a movie or two and eating junk food (liquorice all sorts, chocolate milk, chips, shit like that), followed by sleeping in and pissing around online in bed the morning after. Sometimes look around for new music as well, back in the day (for the month or so following comiket) I would slowly work through any albums that interested me from those doujin music google spreadsheets that would pop up on /jp/ and doujinstyle. Became a ritual for a good few years.

>Dim lights make everything more comfy.

They really do tbh. I've been biking in the semi-dark a bit recently as it's winter here and the dim lighting always makes it feel oddly comfy.

Who else plays riichi mahjong here?

I've been thinking we could create a lobby to chill and play, or even for those who don't have much practice playing with people and want to improve/learn.
Maybe if there's enough interest we could even organize weekly tournaments or something like that.

Here's a general, in-depth overview of the whole game.

And here's the same thing without the "depth" part so you can more or less understand what's the objective and start playing right away (this is probably what you want to check if you want to start playing right now).

Are there any other mahjong computer games? There were a few links for some in arcturus but either it's Tenhou, which is online and in Japanese which I don't know well enough, or the links are dead and I can't find the game anywhere. I'm just looking for a simple mahjong game where I can play against the AI besides the flash game. The flash game let me get a feel for it but I don't really understand it well enough, it also sometimes tells me "No multiplier" when I try to ron or tsumo and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong

You can try Touhou Unreal Mahjong. It's not fully translated but most (if not everything) you're going to use is, plus it's nicer than the flash game since it comes with music and special moves, and the difficulty escalates as you game games and unlock new lobbies. Some illustrations are horrible though.

>it also sometimes tells me "No multiplier" when I try to ron or tsumo and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong

I haven't played the flash version much since I've got Tenhou/THMJ, but that shouldn't happen… do you a screenshot of your hand and discard pile? Having no multiplier means you tried calling a tsumo without a yaku on hand, but that should be illegal because tsumo is worth 1 han and becomes a yaku… unless you were playing with an open hand (you called chii/pon/kan from other discard pile). Maybe that's the reason. I don't remember if the same happens with ron.

Generally, avoid stealing tiles from other player's unless it's a ron, or a very rare kan (honor tiles). Doing so gives half the points you'd get with a closed hand, and may invalidate your chances to call tsumo (or riichi, if you want to show off). Speaking of riichi, avoid that too, unless another player has already declared riichi, so you can steal half their points, or you have a really strong hand and you don't want to change it anymore.

Thanks for the advice, the problem was that I was playing with an open hand. Now that I know how hands work I've been doing a lot better. I just need to keep practicing and learning all of the different hands
