Impending societal collapse across most of the Western world seems less than ideal to me.

This sushi expressed my thoughts.

We're progressing towards a technology facilitated dystopia.

Politics and hatred everywhere. Political correctness turned into censorship.

I'm quite a loner, for several reasons, but this shit just discourages from socializing and makes me want enjoy life in solitude more, even it's just watching animu, mountain biking, travelling and shit

I feel like that too, but I don't know how to stay comfortably independent in solitude. Hard to find a source of income I think. Might be possible through certain crafts, but that also requires some investment, which might not be possible for NEET and low income loners.

>low income


Hmm. I worked at factory earning almost minimum wage, while studying, for 4 years, before moving on to a proper office job.

Living w/ my parents and adopting a very strict financial regime helped me out a lot. I managed to build a decent PC, buy a car, go to anicons, travelled to Japan, etc…

I took pleasure not from instant gratification in buying that new figure, but in the commitment to, and accomplishment of, the goal I set that was to buy said figure.

Save, plan ahead, don't contract debt. I think it's doable.

Even for NEETs. If you're very emotionally unstable, try setting smaller, easier objectives, and work your way up. The hardest part is getting a job. From the shit I've seen, anyone can get a job, no matter how crappy it is. It pays and that's, not all, but, most of what matters. This mindset helped me.

does anyone know any particularly comfy youtubers or podcasts?

i'm always looking for something comfy or interesting to listen to in my spare time, and listening to people talk helps me relax a lot.

one podcast i'm a fan of is the wisenheimers podcast which was two animators from newgrounds talking about stupid shit. it ended a while a go, but managed to be pretty funny and chill while it lasted.

i also some lets players like vinesauce, jontron era game grumps and another guy called manlybadasshero who mostly does horror game lp's, but i havent found anything as comfy as i would prefer.

donoteat01 is an interesting channel, he uses cities skylines to explain the politics of urban (and sometimes suburban) planning and sometimes covers other stuff like this video on the oft praised killdozer.

This thread isn't meant to be all about me, even if my writing makes it seem like it, it can be anything to do with friends.

Do you have any online friends sushi? How did you get them? What do you like to do with them?

I have a problem making online friends, because all the sites I go on are sushi rollymous. I have tried a few forums, but I can never commit to them, and they're usually pretty bad anyway. I dont have time for IRC, and I always make a big old booby of myself in live conversation. Do you think it's possible for me to make online friends, or should I stick to being by myself for the moment?

I don't have online friends, but would like to make some. I feel like I've dug myself into a corner by frequenting sushi rollymous imageboards and similar places. I've slowly grown into more and more of an outcast because of it. I still try to make friends with people in real life but I never feel the sense of connection I used to feel, which was weak to start with tbh. And I think it's got a lot to do with my gradual withdrawal from mainstream culture.

I've had the same group of online friends that I met on an MMO nearly a decade ago, played lots of games and trolled together but now everyone is slowly drifting back to the real world and becoming normal people aside from just one strange guy who is my only friend now. I'm going to get an IRC and just start surfing the waves tomorrow.

I met people in some mmorpg before and right now, we're still chatting in discord. Though many had moved on to new stuff like work or a different game. Wish we can go back to playing together like we did before but just their company is enough for me.

I feel like it's way easier to find friends online than it is in real life, just don't get too invested in the people you meet online.

Let's tell each other about strangers doing things that made you feel comfy.

Recently I went to the laundry room to clean some clothes. I like to hang around in the laundry room and play video games and keep an eye on my clothes because I don't trust people not to take them out of the machine.
Sitting at the table was a man wearing a US Marines (or some other military) cap, I guess he was a veteran but I didn't ask. He had a creaky old laptop on the table and was playing a Christmas themed hidden objects game.

Pic unrelated.

I don't really know if comfy is the correct word, but like a year ago i was in the bus with my earphones on, and also the guy sitting next to mine.
I play piano since I'm a kid, and Ihave the habit of start playing an imaginary piano every time I'm listening a song that I already know how to play it. I think at the time I was listening to Bach, so I was trying to resist the temptation of doing that autistic shit, when suddenly the guy next to mine started doing that exact thing. That was odd af, so I decided to do it too, thereby we spend the whole trip (about 30 minutes) playing our imaginaries pianos, and sometimes laughing, but we didn't talk to each other. I kinda regret it cause he seemed pretty based.

Once when I was in college, I was depressed and sitting on the curb with my head in my lap and arms wrapped around. A passerby said something like, "kid, you got your whole life ahead of you" in a reassuring tone.

What do you rolls do to keep a healthy body and mind?
I find that one of the best ways to do both consistently is training yourself in martial arts. An good starting point for learning shaolin kung fu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f8zb_QKZEo .

One of the ways I train mentally is by doing regular meditation. If you are new to meditaion and don't know what style to pick, start with Zazen - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LL2XUTeoUsM (turn on captions). Some other techniques that I like are detailed here: https://tricycle.org/magazine/tibetan-buddhist-meditation/ .
I think it's important to learn to feel what the chinese call qi. That does not mean you have to become religious or convince yourself that it is anything more than a phychological phenominon, but the reason I think it's important is that it can be used to reach a meditative state even when going about your daily activities. I'm not an expert, but I think a good method is to sit or lie in a position that allows you to breath with your stomach (make sure to remove constraints like belts), close your eyes and take slow, deep breaths with your stomach. As you breath in, imagine energy slowly rising from the base of your spine to the top of your scalp, and as you slowly breath out imagine that energy sinking from your scalp back down to the base of your spine.

Forgot to mention, in keeping a healthy mind it is also important to keep it active rather than just meditating all the time. Set up a routine of studying, mental arithmetic, playing music and whatever else.

Physically: I hit the gym twice a week. It's annoying but helps to keep me at a reasonable weight.

Mentally: Talking with people on irc is my main source of human contact since I'm mostly alone and work and have no friends. I'd probably go nuts without it. The gym thing also helps mentally. I went full Hikimori for a while and that really screwed with my head. Thought my figs were coming to life and trying to kill me in my sleep. Getting some fresh air really helped with that.

I used to love lifting. I did a low volume near daily routine for a while and got burnt out because I just don't have the frame to gain mass. Right now I'm thinking about switching to a carnivore diet, with minimal veggies at first and a switch to mostly bodyweight exercise with the goal of getting leaner but staying more or less the same weight. The hardest part of all of this is quitting drinking.

 No.4955

i haven't been doing it lately, but i find that mediatating for at least 15-30 minutes a day keeps my mind at easy. also keeping a morning and night routine helps me feel more structured.

OP is doing long division to calculate 67/4. At the top you write how many times 4 goes into a certain place value (multiple of 10).

67 = 40 + 24 + 2.8 + 0.2, but OP forgot to separate the last two.

The three is actually to be divided by the 4 as well, where 3/4 is .75 (or if you like, 75% of a 1)

Hello!

I've been meaning to do a language thread, but I thought it would be more interesting if it includes comfy-posting about different parts of the world.
Feel free to share the -best- resources to learn your language or others that you may be aware of!

I know its hard to not get political but please try to keep it civil, or at most do some friendly banter.

I'm from a country that used to belong to the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, my main language is Español, and some tidbits of guaraní/portuguese.

However I'm interested in japanese[0] and russian, and of course, I would like to improve my english.

Duolinguo is fine for vocab but I noticed that the Irish sentences are totally off. I remember "Learning Irish" by Mícheál Ó Siadhail and "Buntús Cainte" being really good (both come with CDs for pronounciation), if you can get your hands on them.

There was an amazing series by Liam Breatnach from years ago that taught the really difficult stuff but I don't think it's possible to buy anymore. If I got my hands on them, I'd probably scan them for Irish learners.

I recently changed my homepage from my country's news to a German newspaper's website. This has two benefits: one is that if I want to know what's happening, I have to make the effort to read it in German. The second benefit is that my mind doesn't automatically begin reading German like it does when confronted with English - even if I see the English headlines for one second I start reading them. This means that I only read the news when I want to, which is less and less these days.

Thank you so much for sharing. This is the first anime I've enjoyed in years. The animals resemble Nordic and South Asian symbols, but perhaps they were cribbing more from the Tao Te Ching. Either way, beautiful.
