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'?

Heaping the roof with earth helps with retaining heat, which I imagine matters a great deal in Norway.

That's assuming it's actually traditional architecture and not a modern design intended blend in with nature. Sometimes I wonder about such pictures.


No idea. It looks cool though


I would assume the ladder. I don't know much about architecture but I would think there would be a better way to heat your home nowadays.


Camouflage from bands of roving Norwegians!


I don't know much about them, but i think the weight helps keep the water proofing material in place.

Doesn't help, we have a keen eye for such things now, but it does help against romanian beggars. They have no clue where we are.

Does anyone here practice Taoism?

Recently I've read up a few things about it and found it very appealing. In addition to that I've watched a few youtube videos from the dude who lived in the mountains with a Dao master and how it affected his personality.

I find the philosophical concepts very good. The "mindfulness" thing helped me to overcome social anxiety partially. Also the entire talk about nature made me want to go outside more, which was a completely foreign concept to me a year ago.

Here's some of the teachings (paraphrased by me) which I found cool and really useful:
>eat until you're 80% full
I thought that it sounded like some dumb diet for single moms, but it really makes you feel better in the long run. I didn't notice much change a few weeks in, but after a few months I found out that I no longer feel heavy in the stomach after eating, don't feel sleepy and have my sugar levels much more stable.
>focus on being "right now"
This is the "mindfulness" thing. When you feel anxious or something like that, switch all of your attention to the "current" moment. Focus on the fact that you live right here and right now, not in the past or in the future. You're a human being who functions and interacts with the environment right here and now.
>appreciate being a part of the nature's natural way
Everything around you naturally flows and lives on its own - the insects, the animals, the plants, other people, etc. You're part of this flow. Act in the most natural way in order to preserve the flow. Appreciate the ecosystem you're a part of.
>for every "yin" there will always be "yang"
The famous "yin yang" thing is part of the daoism philosophy. Put short, there's no yang ("light") without yin ("darkness"). Without bad, there's no good. If you only want good, you'll eventually have to pay the price for it. If something bad happens to you, it means that good will follow.

good writeup, sushi roll. i think everyone can learn from taoist ideas. won't make this a blogpost, but i'm currently homeless and one of the few things i keep in my bag is my copy of the tao te ching. everyone should read it. wouldn't be surprised if others here are already involved with taoism or would be particularly interested in it.
chapter 11 - using what is not - has always been my favourite. it just flipped my perspective of everything upside down when i first read it, and in such a short piece of writing!
i've thought for the longest time that, regardless of if you subscribe to any particular religion or none at all, everyone should read the tao te ching and the book of ecclesiastes. everyone can and should learn from them.

I will do any comissions, check me out, OC's, traditional as well as digital, whatever you feel like.


hey sushi roll - it's cool that you're trying to get yourself out there and all, it really is, but you've gotta give a bit more than this. you have zero connections or examples of your work visible on this twitter, nobody's gonna commission from someone who's art they've never seen. set up an instagram, or DA, or something, where people can see your work, and share THOSE. link to them on this twitter. keep all your online prescence connected.


i second this sushi! share ur work so ppl are like "woah i wanna comm that person!!"


Theres a thread for promoting things. You would know that if you actually browse here. As usual someone comes in, plasters their poster on the biggest wall they can find, then leave.
I wish containment threads were more enforced.

what's your experience with love? falling in it, falling out of it, one-sided or mutual.

currently i'm crushing very, very hard on what might be the most unreadable person on earth. i fell in love (i guess) when they asked the professor if they could step out of class and stumbled over whether to say "can i" or "may i". they went with the latter (and said please) and dropped their phone on the way out.

crushing this hard is like throwing my heart and brain in a blender and pulverizing them at the highest speed, but the blender short-circuits and the whole thing just combusts and explodes. i've always been a hopeless romantic, so this is a real weird mix of unsurprising and absolutely terrifying. i've never been so frustrated and so joyful in my life.

how about you, sushis?

Oh, I don't know, what can I do?


No. I don't believe love is sustainable emotion for the long time.

just started dating this person from my poetry club everything is going wonderfully! conversations between us flow so naturally and we're into the same genre of weird stuff. it seems like we're both kinda falling for each other and we make each other so happy like aaaaaaaaaahhhh this can't be real

love is out there, i think?


That's great to hear sushi roll.
(making a note - poetry clubs??)

What are you having to drink, fellow rolls?

I went out for dinner tonight and had a few different drinks: a cocktail called Chuck Norris which was bourbon, ginger and lemon; two different drinks in a jar; one spiced rum, pineapple, lime and ginger ale, and the other bourbon, orange, cinnamon and ginger ale. Finished off with some sake. Delicious times all round.

Carlsberg have reformulated their beer in the UK, tbh it still tastes like standard Carlsberg, but to their credit, less shit. It used to be fucking undrinkable if it was anything less than ice cold, but now it's actually alright even after about 20 minutes out of the fridge.

Not exactly going to stop people from drinking IPAs which are all the rage now, but that shit is expensive.

Last few months I've been drinking canned pale ale. It is fairly mild, so it is easy to drink on a friday evening after work when I want to relax and cleanse my palate.

I sometimes have a glass of whisky too, these days I have some bottles from Nikka and Aberlour.

Hi all, we've put together a realtime imageboard intended to capture 4chan's comfy 2005-06 character:


Realtime means you can see every letter as it's being typed. Pretty fun, and creates a brisk pace of discussion that makes it feel almost like an imageboard-irc. See you there~

Oops, you probably saw /b/. We just made the other day because people kept asking to use the board for their own communities, it's attracted some generals from 4chan who prefer realtime. We let them do their own thing on it, as long as they don't crossover to /j/. /j/ is the comfy board.

Yeah, I know, I had run an old meguca version before too. There's optimization issues with it and doushio that make scaling with larger communities an issue. Overall current version meguca is the best option available for what we're looking for. Hopefully with more people being introduced to realtime we'll see more implementations of the concept!


ew why did you guys allow reddit edgelords on there. i guess its fine since they're all on /b/ but still. it's interesting seeing the website develop as a sort of home for groups that have been pushed out of there communities; i wonder how this will develop in the future. anyway nice board and thanks for the hard work; i've been using it since chen thread #2


It is dead.

Do you enjoy your job? And if you don't explain to me why.
75 posts and 13 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


What kind of software job do you have? I keep hearing wildly different stories, where some jobs work you to the bone and make you do unpaid overtime structurally, and other jobs pay you easy money to automate your own job from home.



When I say easy, I mean that I don't have to do blue-collar work. Most of my time is spent with politics or doing typing on a computer.


Well, I suppose that is one upside. I should probably do the same to be honest, though I might try selling my games instead of destroying them.


I work at customer service for a mobile company in the US. I live outside of the US but ofc it's cheaper to pay 3rd world countries for workforce, isn't it?
Do I enjoy it? actually, I do. It's just what you'd expect: talking to angry customers all day. It can be hell, actually. Today I got a really rude and frustrated guy on the phone. But I managed to keep calm and even though he was really rude throughout the call and kept telling me I wasn't helping him, though I WAS, in the end he cooled down. Not always does this happen, and since I'm not american and speaking with americanese, I get a lot of racist jackasses.
But in the end I enjoy it, and I also enjoy the fact that it thoughens me in some aspects, givese me some endurance, and also the fact that I'm outlasting a bunch of other people who keep dropping out.
It gives me the money to keep studying chinese, to take my pretty lady out for dinner every now and then, and generally, to chill. Even though sometimes the shift can be really heavy, but I also have drugs so in the end, I can't really complain.
hbu sushi, do you enjoy your job?


I work as a custodian at the University I attend, easy money cause I barely do shit and just listen to podcasts the entire time.

How do you deal with pathological liars? Have you ever encountered any?

I've been lying pathologically for most of my childhood, and stopping doing so was the best change I've made in my life. I believe it passed to me from my mother, who to this day lies a lot.

However recently I've encountered a person who lies very much. It's a girl, we've got normal friendly relationships, neither of us is romantically interested or anything like that. However, for the little time we talk, I can see that she lies quite a lot.
Those lies are mostly about achievements or something similar. I don't care about them, it's just an indicator for me to not get surprised next time when she gives a different answer when we touch this topic. Something like that.

But I wonder how people deal with those. Do you call them out? Do you try to avoid the person or do you continue to communicate normally?


>How do you deal with pathological liars?
If I don't really have to spend much time around them I just ignore them or tell them they're full of shit.

If I'm stuck with them like people I work with I just avoid talking to them.


Had this one kid in school who was one. Mostly just made fun of him, tho he was a friend; banter I guess. Said his Father was a millionaire , he said he bought him self a Jag at age 14 for when he was 17, things of that nature, along the lines of materialism. Mostly he liked being the center of attention (maybe why he didn't mind the jokes), when a good friend of mine was in trouble with the law, he was spreading and talking about it to people who really didn't need to know. I was not keen on him post that.

Depends on how you know, and interact with the person. If you can't joke about it then that person is better being cut off.


I encourage it, in a way. I don't call them on their bullshit, but I let them tell me their ridiculous stories and tell them I believe them. I try to make them say the most ridiculous shit possible because I know they will embarrass themselves real bad at some point. I don't need to be the one making it happen.


I've only met one true pathological liar, and it was a girl from school. We were kids, so nothing of importance was ever discussed. She would just make stories up constantly. I never had a problem with it, and I would listen to the bullshit she had to say, but I wouldn't ever consider being friends with someone like that.

Hey sushis, how the hell do I get off the computer?

I spend practically all day browsing various boards and forums and doing nothing of value. I have a couple non-computer-based hobbies but barely any motivation. I've tried to make my computer time more productive (studying languages, programming, even just watching stuff or playing games) but I can never stick with it because to be honestly I hate the computer and everything to do with it.

I'm at the point where you could call me internet addicted, but it's mostly because I feel like I have nothing else to do. I could stop using the computer, but I have no idea how I'd fill my time. I guess I'd stare at the wall? My social life isn't too vibrant either and that doesn't help.

Has anyone else been here / does anyone have some ideas?

How fucking dumb am I

>post before reading the whole fucking OP


Don't be so hard on yourself, sushi.


I think you should try creating things creating things, maybe start with things you find entertaining and try to create your own or lean how. When I take breaks from the internet, I also spend time reading books and writing in a journal which are ok. Sometimes I feel like my life is stagnating and I’m just doing the same thing all the time but having to create things and not having them readily available seems to change that. Also, an example of this would be trying to write stories to entertain myself. I’m not good at it but for some reason it’s pretty fulfilling.

If you are having trouble being productive, I’ve found that figuring out what you should do or work on, going to bed relatively early (melatonin helps a lot,) and waking up relatively early and doing whatever it is you decided to do as soon as you wake up helps a lot. If you start being productive before you have breakfast or do whatever else you do, you won’t have time to procrastinate, get sucked into some form of escapism, or get overwhelmed with whatever you are working on and it will be easier to concentrate for the rest of the day.

Just get outside. I've been skating around with headphones on the past few days and I feel like a kid again. Just take it in moment by moment. Psilocybin was a big help for me, it made me realize that being outside isn't threatening.
I fell yesterday and almost broke my leg, but I still feel great nonetheless.


In my experience, once I started going to university and had a lot to do, I started spending a lot less time on the computer (granted I'm doing it now instead of studying). Still, I think one of the best things you can do to help is to start dedicating a lot of time to something worthwhile. At least then, even if it involves the computer, you will be getting something done and you will feel better about your use of it. Maybe just going outside with a laptop to a park somewhere might change the mood around your pc use.

Cultivating social relationships is also a great way of waning yourself off if you have that option. It definitely helps me.

If you really want to get away from anything electronic, there are ways to do worthwhile things without the internet. Even learning a language (something I've been spending a lot of time doing in my free time) can be done with a physical spaced repetition system. You could read physical books, work on maths by hand, make physical art, do exercise. As another sushi here said, try psychedelics, maybe it would give you some perspective.
