reached bump limit so I'm making an even newer-er one!
General discussion thread. Talk about how your day is going, anything interesting that happened recently, what's on your or just to say hi!
For a long time, I was wary of buying toys, figures, merchandise, or other things for myself. I had a bad impression of the practice due to extreme, obsessive examples online, Instances where people would blow their entire income on collectables, have walls covered with sealed toys, putting things like Funko Pops everywhere, having explicit statues and/or tapestries, etc. I didn't really feel secure indulging in that sort of thing.
I recently started letting myself enjoy some merch in the form of larger sized (50cm and up) plush dolls. Being able to 'hold' a familiar character has been soothing for me. It even settled my picture collecting tendencies, and obsessive preoccupation with certain characters. It makes me understand more why merchandise is popular, though I doubt I'll be inclined to collect nearly as much as others. I'm not going to be jumping in to dakis or openly displaying explicit decore either, that kind of thing just isn't for me.
what plushies you get roll?
Very cute! I have some smaller pokemon plush I really love, and I'd like to get some bigger and more huggable ones
Sounds cute, sushi.
Mr.Pickles is funny, but it kind of sucks the whole satanist theme wasn't more fleshed out. The only thing the show only really knows about satanism is the pentagram and 666. The more bizarre moments when they combine unrelated movements with satanism, bdsm and metal get the worst half of this.
Kind of sucks because the show works best when it's free to make it's own bizarre mythology, use opera based soundtracks, and body horror. The whole satanic theme just holds it back
I wonder how robots will deal with the drug addicts since they're infamous for stealing steel and metal scraps, something I'd assume robots are made of, to sell for money. A heroin user will 100% attack at terminator for some black tar money
Welcome back, sushi! Where have you been?
Autumn is the best season.
what is love?
The force that holds life together.
Autumn is the best season, I like cool weather and dressing in layers, but I hate dealing with snow. Also the leaves turning is very pretty.>>12390
Baby, don't hurt me?
I like winter a bit more than autumn. Both are really beautiful where I live tho. The colder half of the year is my favorite
I would love to try out Melty Blood: Type Lumina since I haven't played a fighting game since a long time ago and this one caught my attention, but I feel like I'm going to be an absolute secondary because I don't know any of the characters and that ticks me a bit off.
Is it just me or have fighting games gotten really more popular in the last year or two?
Dog, i like Asagao way too much. Never realised Snake only has 2 people…
good taste, cute brown girl is best
I'm in a dilemma
Someone moved into the apartment above me about a month ago, and ever since then their dog has been howling nonstop at the worst possible times. like, 1:00 in the morning times. I really don't want to be the guy who complains to the landlord and gets them kicked out or whatever but it's seriously interrupting my sleep and I don't really know what to do.
Have you talked to the guy yet? Chances are he doesn't even know his dog howls in distress when left alone, I wouldn't get the landlord involved unless he's being a prick about it and deliberately neglecting his dog.
Let us all pray to be reborn in a world were characters we find cute are MC's in their fictional worlds and not side characters who appear once in a blue moon.
It's more cute when they're on the sideline.
Wonder how draft dodging will evolve once the US declares another war. Right now we have stronger and more diverse drugs than ever so faking a disease is one anti-thyroid pill bottle away. Once that draft comes out a whole lot of insulin bottles will go missing and a whole lot of nurses will develop "hypoglycemia of unkown origin"
Haikus are fun, I
can not stop writing them! Oh,
but they are silly
In a weird twist of fate plastic surgeons are one of the smartest doctor sub-specialties. It's the best paying specialty making it one of the most competitive to get into. You have to be a cream of the crop medical student to get a job doing ass lifts all day.
Good on you, sushi. Having a clean desk is such a nice feeling. I need to declutter my desk, too.
"College is so cool because you get to choose when you come into class!" hasn't been true for me because 60% of my teachers make attendance a big part of the grade. Missing 5+ days would seriously mess with my grade
I remember it because it lead to one of the weirdest wikipedia sources ever.
I feel so-so on the disease its self because it feels like something someone just made up. All previous studies on 'sleep procrastination' relate to people not sleeping due to self control issues and not regaining freedom. Very little literature, or even online mention!, existed before this tweet and yet now people are treating it like a real 'medical' thing. Two small details is that it might be a culturally bound syndrome, like Taijin Kyofusho or Dhat Syndrome, because Chinese work expectations are nothing like western ones and it gives a few mediclization vibes were it says "this is your problem we can fix by fixing you and not by fixing the culture that makes you act like this". These are all nitpicks though
I relate to it, but more midday. I lived with my parents during college, so they maintained strong control over my schedule except mid-day when they were busy. In order to exert control sometimes I would skip meals, so I could lie to them and say I ate. I did this for no reason other than to control myself outside there bounds.
I do believe disordered eating has been linked to control issues before.
