What's on your mind?
Done anything cool lately?


>Be confident and do your best!!
I did! But I don't think I got the job, I was very nervous and they definitely asked questions I didn't have enough experience to answer. I'll still try for similar jobs though, just maybe less intense ones


I finally bucked up and started working on a comic. I am a bit worried about keeping my characters on model, but I guess it's my first one so maybe it just gets easier with time.


ooh can you share it with us?
of course if you'd rather keep it private I understand!


I will! But I promised myself I wouldn't share any of the finished pages until I actually had them all done. Should be sometime this week hopefully.

I have so many hobby projects to finish this summer but so little time, I really feel like I could use some time management training and my thought is that all of us could.

Speaking of projects
>>16047 here, and my isopods are very happy in their new home. It's really fun to be able to just look over at my desk and watch all their funny little behaviors. Watching them exploring their moss forest and grazing is really fun! They also like to rear up and sniff the air by waving their antenna around, and I've seen them cleaning their antenna too. Very cute and I love my lil guys

I cycled to the town for some ice cream. Today's ice cream had the taste of sweet childhood memories as I met one of my old childhood friends there. (Surprisingly, tangerines make a great ice cream as well!)

Afterwards I took pictures inside of an abandoned mansion after arranging with the reseller who owns it nowadays and everything went smoothly. Until I discovered the living room with a bunch of seemingly random nameplates, a single black and white TV on a small table in the middle of the room and two chairs occupied by the most horror cliché dolls you can find. Did I just get pranked by the owner? But otherwise the photos turned great and it's sad I can't post them here.


Can you not post them for fear of the dolls coming to life chucky style and haunting you?


File: 1688980330511.jpg (48.04 KB, 525x700, chi_bjd.jpg)

I love all the dolls and all the dolls love me, I trust them not to bring any knives near me. They risk the awful fate of being disassembled and reused for parts otherwise. But that was a great one, thank you!

The single real reason is that I have already posted them to my personal blog and I strive to stay sushirollymous.


That's a bit of a shame, I love abandoned places. I've purchased several collections of pictures of abandoned buildings over the years.


't's a shame, save one for the family next time!

I know that we are still in good terms, because of how we handled things. Some flaky behavior in the end doesn't deny the good things we shared.

Just found out about Toki Pona the other day, considering having a go at learning it. Known about conlangs for a while but always felt like too much of an effort to be worth it.
Been in a rut lately, and it feels like just what I need. Something small and simple to learn which is also lighthearted and silly. An upward motion to get out of stagnant waters.


I wish constant talking wasn't seen as a requirement when other people. It seems staying with someone, even a relative, in silence is interpreted as awkward or cold.

There's so much pleasure in being with someone else, enjoying each other presence without needing words. I think it could even lead to a deeper, simpler connection.

People are too attached to words and expressing random things. Really, it doesn't matter what's being said as long as something is constantly being expressed.

Just picture this : two people having dinner together, the only sound being the clatter of the dishes. No animosity in the air. At first glance it may appear that it's two persons being alone together, but really they are having a full conversation without aknowledging each other.


Confession: There was a thread where you had to say something and then link another post in the thread, and someone linked my post, but I never responded. The guy who responded wasn't me at all. I saw the post the entire time on day one, but I never bothered to reply. I can't even remember what the thread was about, but it's been in my head every time I come here (very infrequently), so I felt like I needed to get that out.

Getting back into Monster Hunter Rise. It's been a while since I last played it. Back before Sunbreak was just announced. Stopped after finishing all the quests and just waiting on that DLC, but never got back when it launched.

Though I am replaying it on my PC instead of my switch because I'm now playing with my bf this time. I wish I could transfer my save from Switch to PC. (´~`)
Otherwise it's been very pleasant having him go through low rank with me and getting my first armor set again.


This makes me think of the "comfortable silence" part from Pulp Fiction


Even though I've seen that movie a few years back, I had completely forgotten that scene.
But yeah, it's pretty much the same idea. I'd argue that being acquainted to the other person is not a condition, it could be just as good with a complete stranger provided both party accepted the lack of talking as not being awkward.

Your sin is forgiven.


I know what you mean, don't really like making conversation but that seems to just lead to attracting people who want to monologue in the presence of someone else.


I had to stop playing Monster Hunter World after it was consuming my life.
By the time I wanted ti go back into it I found it extremely repetitive and grindy. I know the franchise has some great boss battles and setpieces, but I can't imagine getting back into it after a while.


Yeah that's fair. I play for a long while and go on hiatus from that game myself, and come back on a whim. Very enjoyable game.

Every installment to the series set itself apart from the last. if you want some fresh mechanics, check out the other games. (Just don't let it consume your life again lol)

Yesterday I caught a snake choking one of my chickens in order to eat her. I had to kill him (the snake), I took of his skin and I ate him. Pic is the skin, you can see the wholes where I hit it with the machete. Pic #2 are the cooked bits of snake.
The chicken survived and she's doing fine.

Hey! Do you have a playlist somewhere with the music used on your site?


I add or change songs pretty often and it sort of goes against the fleetint feeling I was going for so I haven't set up anything with the whole list. But if you open the console it (usually) logs each song as it plays.

Yeah I'm fine. Gonna have some bruising from the seat belt is all. Jerk decided to cross two lanes of traffic right as I was coming down, ran head on into him. I'll be alright, save for some pain over the next few days (a LOT of pain) but the cars fucked. Shame. It was such a good car.


That's fucking awful, but I'm glad you're fine.
I hate stupid people.


That sucks, sushi. Sorry about your car. Lots of boneheads in traffic, sadly.

Reminds me of this idea I had for a sci-fi novel I wanted to write. One from the perspective of aliens monitoring the earth. They've come to believe that automobiles are the intelligent species of Earth, and that humans are just a parasite that frequently crawls into the automobiles' heads to control them. Kind of a funny satire piece with a lot of ridiculous comedy.


This is almost the exact explanation for the name "Ford Prefect" from hitchhiker's guide.

It's one thing if it's +12 outside. You can walk on, and on, and on.
But when it's +35 in shade and the sun is out to turn you into a coal chunk, the only place you want to be is where the air conditioner is. Which is definitely not outside. There are, of course, seas and lakes, and rivers, but you probably can't swim your way to the store. Even if you live in Venice.


I don't wish to make assumptions, but you might be surprised at how much worse car infrastructure makes this problem.
Asphalt roads make a fine solar oven, trees and grass can knock 10 degrees off the air temperature even before you factor the shade


Well yeah, but subways, busses, elevators, and indoor bridges all also solve that problem.


Not the same sushi but I live in the countryside and it can get FUCKING HELLISH here, and I don't live in the dry, hot part of my country.


You do know that humans existed before cars. Guess what they did when it's 35C outside and they need to go somewhere?


Also before cars, buildings were built closer together to reduce travel time. Now with cars being common, business are built with massive empty lawns taking up so much space that walking is near impossible.


>walking is near impossible.
Be the change you want.

Are you suggesting that sushi… to decrease average walking time between two arbitrary buildings by increasing city density by building in other people's empty lawns?

>Guess what they did when it's 35C outside and they need to go somewhere?
I'm guessing they took a siesta in the heat of the day and did most of their traveling in the morning and evening.


Random thought: I love my cute cars


What…? Are you saying I should J-walk? Because when I talk about cities being built for cars, I mean that there is no public walkway in my city. I have to walk in traffic. Which at best would get me arrested for J-walking and at worst splatter me on the asphalt.

Me too.


Woke up in a strange mood. I'm tired, last night I was tired or something and today I'm only slightly better. I'm in no mood to study or work. But then what else can I do?


At times like this it's best to take it easy. I woke up today with a bad headache after a terrible night. At noon I went back to bed and slept for two hours. Afterwards I felt better and could get something done.

Trying to be active is key, but pushing it will just ramp up fatigue in the long run.


I'm talking to a girl. We're both fond of each other but I'm trying to find the sustainable balance of affection; I don't want to go too hard and fast and burn out, but I want to do lots of things for her too.


I think I finally got over my online crush. I've had it for almost 6 months and we were getting really close, we talked a lot everyday and I thought we had a real connection, which was actually true but there's something wrong with me because I get uncomfortable when I get too close to people and also I wasn't sure about online dating so I didn't really tell her how I felt. And then she started dating someone else which was very hard for me to accept for the following months but I think I'm finally over it. But it was very difficult because It's hard for me to find people that I connect with… I don't check her online status as much and I don't think/daydream about what could've been and all that. Although it's hard because she still messages me almost everyday but we don't talk nearly as much.

Anyway, I feel like I'm finally moving on which is awesome.


File: 1693482987902.jpg (569.72 KB, 2591x1457, 1644000882849.jpg)

I'm a bit on the other end.
There was someone I just couldn't stop thinking of for more than a year and a half, but eventually I figured out she wasn't the thing I've placed on a pedestal, and that what I have built in my head just was different to what she really was.
It's a bit sad though, it might be healthy on the long run, but it still makes me somewhat blue that someone who meant a lot to me at the time is hard to think about now.


File: 1693486172685.png (574.6 KB, 527x590, 2014-03-26 21_22_37-[gg]_J….png)

I don't wanna work today. I wanna crawl back into bed and zone out. I won't be able to capture this feeling after work. Oh well.

Good idea. Just try not to agonize over it too much, if you can. Do what you think is appropriate in the moment, and keep communication open & encouraged.

The 'daydreaming' and 'placed on a pedestal' stuff can become insidious for us. I am proud of both of you for making good decisions for yourselves. It's super painful to get over those connections, even if in some cases the person themselves isn't quite who you thought. The *idea* of that person can become more exciting than they are. That's when things get dangerous.


Thank you I did take it easy and slept a good bit, today I am recovered.


Hang in there bros.
Recently this has been on my mind too, I have a good friend on discorb who is nothing but a friend, but because she is a girl, my primitive male brainu starts getting ideas. There's every reason not to go there, but I guess the brain works that way. Suddenly this topic is everywhere and elsewhere I see a guy declaring his love to a girl on some server I lurk, despite, in his own words, not knowing her for long, and always online, too.
Idk why I share this, it probably don't help at all.


I'm >>16686
I appreciate you sharing this. Tbh I don't know if I even wanted anything more than being close friends with her, maybe there was a good reason why I hesitated going further. idk how online relationships are supposed to work especially when she lives on another side of the world and I don't think I could travel there at least anytime soon. I just want to hang out with her like we used to but now someone else gets to do that instead of me. And that hurts a lot but I've already accepted that and it's ok.

I'm not sure the internet is very good for long term relationships. It's easy to hide behind a facade. You don't have to be there, it's all at your own convenience.

So I can see the appeal of trying to start a real life relationship with someone you don't know that well instead of spending years trying to get to know their online persona. You'd find out a lot quicker if things are going to work out or not.

Not that people don't put on facades in the real world too, but it's harder to keep it up, especially in the long term.


I’m not very sure about my future, the whole summer disappeared in what felt like one month. Still, I can’t say I regret the fun I had with friends, or the dumb projects I did.


I see online relationships like pen-pals. Some of these relationships can blossom into real-world ones, because the line between the wire and the skin is so thin. We have a social thread here for those brave enough to meet in person, give it a try.

You have a beautiful evening :)

It has been a long time since I came here. I remember stumbling upon this place as a teenager and trying to find friends because I didn't used to have any back then. It's kind of weird when you are so socially isolated you don't even know where to meet people. Oh well.

Things have been going well though. I got into a reputable university, found a girl of my dreams, turned out she was hanging out with the other dudes behind my back, let go of her, got into a grind mindset and since then I have been one of those dudes who just work out and study all day. I occasionally catch up with friends and we go out drinking once every fortnight.

This is the last year of my university, I have several projects and an internship coming up starting with this semester, and ex decided to come after me all this time. I don't really want to entertain her again but it's kind of nice to see that she regrets her decision and it's definitely a boost for my ego.

I don't really know what comes next. I might apply for a graduate degree next year or I might just start working. I realized that I don't really like relaxing that much so I definitely need something to keep me busy.

What's the joke with neapolitan ice cream? All my life I never knew what that is and after searching on the internet it's just the same old 3 flavours in three boring lines.
Why? Why is this such a thing in media? You can just order an ice cream with the three flavours, I just don't get it.


File: 1694021036760.jpg (731.19 KB, 2507x2507, cirnoexpert.jpg)

It's one of those funny historical misunderstandings. The word "neapolitan" is actually an American misspelling of "Napoleon". During the French Revolution, Napoleon's supporters popularized the "Napoleon Ice Cream", which was in bands of red, white, and black to match the revolutionary army's flag. After Napoleon's defeat and subsequent imprisonment at Alcatraz, many of his supporters moved to California, where they would hold rallies demanding Napoleon's freedom. They would often serve their "Napoleon ice cream" at these rallies. This ice cream was popular at the time because there were only 3 ice cream flavors that had been invented and it included all of them. It soon began to spread across the country, but at some point the name got misheard too many times and by the time it reached New York, everyone was calling it "Neapolitan Ice Cream" instead and that's the name that ended up sticking.

It's a good job, I pretty much just have to keep everyone happy and getting along. (and clean up after everyone of course)

Filling up the pool on a hot day or getting fetch going with a group is actually fun, which is something I didn't expect to say about work.

Now that is interesting, sorry for sounding a bit rude in that post, I was just mesmerized why Neapolitan Ice Cream was mentioned so much in movies.
It's insanely clear that ice cream truffles and sandwiches are the superior cold desert. They can come in plenty of different sizes with all sorts of filler, and they're also covered in chocolate. Napoleon ice cream just seems very uninteresting to me.
Just talking about this is making me crave a little bit of that, thankfully they're expensive and I got no dime in me pocket :P.


>Now that is interesting
And also an obvious joke - Napoleon died in 1821, California was founded in 1850, and Alcatraz prison was opened in 1934. There were also more than 3 flavors of ice cream that existed during Napoleon's lifetime.
Also, if Neapolitan ice cream is talked about a lot in movies, I've somehow never noticed. Off the top of my head, I can't think of a single movie where it's brought up at all.


There's a short segment about it in Shrek, and also a Simpsons joke with only the chocolate stripe being eaten.
It's just 2 but I am fairly sure I've seen it mentioned before somewhere else

Every time, I try to be only a useful member of the part time staff. Every time, I'm given more responsibilities and more hours while the rest of the staff gets culled and working conditions deteriorate until others bail out. I've began to wonder if I'm a contributive factor in the degradation of working environments. This pattern has happened too often for that to not be a possibility. My objective is always to do as much work in as little time possible so that everyone (not just me - everyone) has more time and space to breathe and therefore be less stressed. Maybe the solution really is to prolong your assigned tasks for as long as possible, be the least cooperative you can be and, most importantly, smile less.

Another three months lost. And all factors outside the gladdening tone in management's voices indicate a fourth month is in store for me. Maybe even the rest of the year.

It might be time to quit. Again.


Sounds like you're working at places that don't pay competitive wages. I work at a place that hasn't kept up with inflation over the past few years and the turnover is becoming massive. Anyone with talent and motivation moves on to somewhere with better pay after a year or two.

I think we're starting to really feel the effects of the contracting workforce. Most people aren't going to do good work for minimum or near-minimum wage in the current market.

EXCUSE YOU, very happy about your site or whatever but calling your bosses exploitative bastards, storming off and then writing an e-mail pointing to a faulty clause in the contract to justify immediate termination is MY copyright, thank you VERY MUCH.


If you're so good at working that you put your coworkers out of business, you should probably start your own company.

I'm still in a bit of disbelief that I made Linux my daily driver. I used to get mad at it because things "never worked" on it, but a lot has changed with time and now it's a really easy to understand system compared to what I dealt with before.
I had headaches trying to run things on it 5 years ago, but now everything just seems to come naturally. Then again, having dealt with the right kind of people helped me become really good at it. Or at the very least, good enough to understand what to touch and what not.


Honestly considering switching to it as my daily driver in a few years. I've pretty familiar with it via Mint on my laptop, but as my daily PC driver I've yet to make the switch. I've slowly but surely moving to FOSS for most of my software choices though so the transition won't be as difficult.
I'll mostly just be switching once Windows 10 in end of life and they cut off security updates. I don't see any reason to upgrade to Windows 11, the main turn off for me is the bloat.

On that note though, I've wondered if anyone else misses when software and applications used to be optimized to hell and back (little no flashy animations, ran on an inkling of memory, didn't take up 200MB for a chat application, etc.) out of necessity.
I used to have a shitty old 2006 laptop as my daily driver in high school and I'd squeeze as much performance out of that thing as possible wherever I could. Now it seems like everything runs on the idea that "everyone who matters has good hardware, who cares about optimization, just push it". It's honestly a massive annoyance to me. Seeing something like Spotify take a full 15 seconds to open the front page vs. Foobar2000 taking less than a second to show my entire library is annoying to me.

I went to the doctor because I thought I was dying of ass cancer. Turns out it's probably just hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are pretty cool! Partially because in their healthy non-inflamed state they help you push things out of your butt without any unfortunate ripping and tearing. But mostly because they're not ass cancer!

I've been using it as a daily driver for several years now and have had no significant problems even though I still don't fully understand it, for lack of trying mostly. I think Linux just werks as much as Windows, but it's just that the ways it breaks are often different and sometimes it can be a bit more frustrating (but also more fun, and potentially more hacky) to fix it if you're not on one of the very popular distros or the commercial ones with paid support.


>Hemorrhoids are pretty cool!
I'm glad to hear you don't have cancer, but I cannot say I ever expected to read that sentence.

i've had an ass rash for the past 6 months. saw a couple doctors, tried creams, suppositories, etc.
only started improving recently when I began airing out my asshole for 20 minutes a day.
seeing a dermatologist to hopefully knock it out fully.


Heh, I have something similar. My buttocks get really annoying from time to time, and I noticed that what helped me the most is to start using wet towels (is that how you spell it?) to wipe.
It has helped me a lot, I have gone to a doctor previously, but the medical system here sucks so much I'd rather just treat myself instead.
Yeah, funnily enough just after saying that I was using it as a daily driver I suffered the "Death by a thousand papercuts" syndrome. After having my PC crash, and my devices not being recognized after boot unless I reconnected them, I went back to Windows because life was getting tough.
I have also been pondering of switching to Fedora, because I heard it was the most stable distro out there next to debian, Ubuntu has always given me issues for some reason.
The downside is that that means reinstalling everything again :(


Why did I take a cup of coffee instead of just tea. I can't sleep now…


has anyone ever been outcasted by outcasts?
i feel really fucking alone. i befriended someone off the internet who was a robot and i ended up being subject to data theft. i truly believe that there is something wrong with me because, why else would this happen to me? i thought people on imageboards would get what its like having people be randomly cruel to you, and hating it because, theres no rhyme or reason. i feel alone like i dont belong anywhere and i dont know what to do.

>i thought people on imageboards would get what its like having people be randomly cruel to you, and hating it because, theres no rhyme or reason.

Probably true, but empathy isn't the reaction for everyone, a lot of people are glad to turn around and do the exact same things that have been done to them to others. Even more so online where there's little if any repercussions.


I want to message my ex on the only thing I can so badly


where do i go then? maybe i am just a bad person and something about me causes others to do things like this around me. maybe i did something bad to warrant this. it feels like i really do have nowhere because i have some mental illness but i dont want to be around people who resort to doing illegal things. what is wrong with me. i just want somewhere to feel understood and try to understand things without being placed in situations where people do that kind of stuff. when did mental illness and being lonely mean actually trying to ruin peoples lives


People can be bad and selfish, no need to blame yourself. You're probably too good-natured to deal with strangers. But you need to be more wary of internet strangers.
Also the fact that they would have been subject to mistreatment doesn't mean they would behave any differently. Look at how imageboards are plagued by bullies and meanies, even though the majority of the userbase were bullied.
Please be careful and exercise some basic precautions! Internet people are generally awful, just look around (not here, here it's nice, but just about anywhere else, you will hardly find a shred of empathy.I was going to say humanness but human nature is exactly the problem.)

This is maybe not the best place to ask this, but has sushi ever had a hip flexor strain? My appointment with a physical therapist is in a month, so I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for stretches/home remedies I can do while I wait.

Today it finally felt like autumn for me. I got some yardwork done, opened up all the windows, neatened up my room, and then played video games. Quality weekend.


Never to the point of therapy. Mine were sore for about a week one time after doing some new exercises.


I can't give a ton of advice, but I think anything within your comfort that will get the area moving thereby stimulating bloodflow is going to be a big help. Maybe try bridges?

my energizer 1 hour battery charger I've had for over 4 years that SMOKES stopped working for no reason. I called up customer service and talked to a girl in India about the warranty and they sent me a list of things I'd need to send in(pics, describing the problem etc.) but before I tried it randomly again and it worked. that's happened before and it befuddles me. how can an electronic device with no power just fix it's own problem when left alone for a while? are there like little tech-elves coming in the night to tinker on my stuff? also need to return the cheap charger I bought in the meantime which is trash, takes literally all day compared to the 1 hour which does live up the name.


Are you a car owner, sushi roll? My Audi's various components used to break down on their own, but never permanently.

Regarding your problem - the famous wear and fear also applies to electronic components. In this case probably the heat is the culprit. I would not risk having a faulty device connected to a power outlet.


I almost always keep my windows open. Even in the winter when it's very cold outside I leave just a teeny crack on my bedroom window. Not having heat or AC is the main reason but I don't mind the fresh air.
I also felt like fall, made some apple cinnamon tea and it just made me smile. Fall is the best time of the year.


>how can an electronic device with no power just fix it's own problem when left alone for a while
They have firmware. Because it's cheaper to write a program for a small microprocessor to do trivial things than it is to build the same logic from various physical devices.
So there's a tiny program in the device that does something as trivial as counting seconds, or turning on the power when a switch is on, or stops the charging circuit from charging batteries once the battery appears full. And like every other computer, the thing has a processor, storage for storing programs, and working memory so that programs can maintain state, so that they can remember how many seconds have passed or whether the device is on or not. The working memory requires constant power to hold data.
And then something silly happens, like the program can't actually count more than six years worth of seconds, or the program doesn't reuse memory and runs out after a while, or you turn the thing on and off too fast so the program behaves like it's both on and off at the same time. Maybe a cosmic ray hits the memory and flips a bit. The program is now in inconsistent state and stops working correctly. The issue persists for as long as the memory is powered on.
In short, manufacturers are too cheap not to replace hardware with software, and all software is universally garbage. If rebooting it fixes the issue, it's a software issue.


Thanks sushis. I'll try bridges, maybe some light yoga too.

Without having the model in hand and opening it to look inside, it's really hard to guess why that happens.
One potential explanation is that the circuit has run for long enough that it's started to wear down a crucial capacitor, or there might be some leak to ground that sometimes short-circuits and sometimes doesn't depending on how hot the circuits are (because typical conductors expand when heated), or a resistor got messed up somewhere and that's leading to some leaky charge. There's like a million different things that can go wrong on the hardware side, never mind integration hell when the software side has to deal with the hardware.

Sorry for the rant but I'm sick of people who don't understand computer tech being mean to programmers >:^(

Software is awesome. It's flexible, lets you define all sorts of functionality without needing a specialized circuit for it. That's what makes von-neumann machines so awesome too! It's a universal computer circuit that can calculate anything as long as there's a program (software) for it!

Hardware isn't always reliable. There are still tractors from the 50's (all mechanical) running today, but most are out of commission because they failed eventually. Sometimes a car starts immediately, sometimes you have to keep the ignition going for a solid 10 seconds before it starts. It's not because "gas producers" are lazy that that happens, it's often because there's some quirk with the engine, it's too cold, etc.

See this picture. Notice the distinct lack of any microcontrollers, EEPROMs, and other components? This circuit likely won't have any software in it at all, because contrary to what most people assume, it sometimes is much cheaper to implement a circuit that develop and maintain a codebase, and programmers are not to blame for all the technical travesties you face (like power station failures, nuclear meltdowns, website 404ing, dropped packets, etc). Ask any engineer (civil, electrical, mechanical) and they'll tell you just how unreliable the majority of technology is. Please stop giving programmers the shaft, they work very fucking hard to get anything working and you wouldn't be posting here if they didn't.

Thank you <3

Out of nowhere, I had a thought to look up the very first online forum I ever joined, all the way back in 2005. To my surprise it's not only still online, but active! I got to talk to online friends I hadn't messaged since 2008 and they actually remembered me.

In the age of nonstop monopolization and enshittification of the internet, I have a little more hope there will still be places that embody its original spirit.


My friend has gotten super into frisbee golf, so I've been playing with him. It's very fun!
Today I went to a really pretty course and got my own discs at last. Had a great time and made some nice shots even though I'm still quite poor at the game overall.


Found a few more very interesting books today. Right up my alley, but also quite removed from my current focus.
I also told my mother I've been reading about the Soviet Union. I should resume that reading.
