Yeah, /op/ was pretty much dead on the old board. What activity was left could easily be left in a One Piece general. Same thing with /a/ and /mspa/ really. The pokemon board is right on the border, especially with the Hoenn remakes, but it can probably be handled with a general as well.

The new boards won't stop the spam, but:
1) The mod panel is as fast as posting, whereas on the old board it could take minutes for a single post to be deleted/banned.
2) Janitors
3) Cloudflare has the ability to block IPs on a blacklist it already has, which (theoretically) greatly lowers the number of proxies/zombies the spammer will be able to use.

Aaaaaaaaand she just asked if our going to a place together was "just friendly". I explained that I wanted to spend time with her, and joked that I understood how terrifying that could be. She seemed to take it in her stride, immediately changed the subject and when I went along with it told me she was going to bed (it seems to be her way of ending a conversation, which is fair enough given that it's almost 1 in the morning).

Damn it, I know she's new to this whole thing, but I don't want to soft-pedal so much that we're in this shitty awkward status quo that's just us tiptoeing around the fact that hey, maybe us making out in a few months time might not completely suck?

You basically only have two decent options here.

1. Put your friendship first and do what you can to help her through the rough patch
2. Tell her that you feel bad for her, but your feelings for her make it too difficult for you to help in this matter.

Whatever you do, don't attempt to surreptitiously sabotage their relationship.

"The American youth" CAN'T FUCKING VOTE. If you mean the sub-25 group, consider the system they were raised in, then ask yourself who set that system up (hint: those that the prior generation put into power.) While I don't disagree that "the American youth" needs more political education, the amount they need is no greater than the American geriatric.

Sorry, I'm just get tired of the "Youth of today are corrupt/worthless/lazy" meme that has been going on for OVER 2000 YEARS. It's nothing more than the "current" generation trying to pass the blame for their own actions to the next generation; it probably also helps their conscience when those in the current generation realize how badly they fucked the next generation (and beyond.) "Well, it wasn't me that voted for the corrupt senator that spearheaded the bill to allow oil companies to just dump their oil wherever! It was those darn kids! They certainly can't blame me when they have to deal with those spills after I'm dead..."

Furthermore, some things--no matter how long someone talks about them or examples they can provide--cannot be taught but must be experienced before a person can truly know them. Political campaigns and their lies are one of those things, I think. Humanity cannot achieve great peace and equality until we are able to implant experience (or, more likely, have a machine that gives everyone a wide set of experiences, where years can be experienced in hours) so that true understanding of why certain things are bad stop being lost every two generations, then re-discovered the next.

Also, on the topic of people and politics, I'm always amused by the polls that give Congress a 9% approval rate. If you were to ask people if they approve of their own representative, it would be far higher. In fact, here's an article about it: http://www.gallup.com/poll/162362/americans-down-congress-own-representative.aspx It's a year old, and the number is 46% for their own representative, but that's still a huge jump over the then-approval-rate of 16% for Congress overall. A second group were first asked if they actually knew their rep's party/name, and if they did then were asked about approval. In this case, the approval rate jumped to 62%. Cause it's never my guy's fault, it's always the other guy's; there's no way I possibly voted for the wrong person...

tl;dr: Despite a 9% approval rate of Congress in general, America will go to the polls this fall an re-elect more than 70% of the House. And so we all deserve the government we elect.

I don't have an OC, so it would be from an existing property.

There's no limit on what character I choose by the artist, and my personal preference is someone who is outgoing, assertive, and/or courageous (essentially, someone who would take the lead in and love some rough sex), with a moderate rack at worst.

Fuuuuuuuck. Recap: My folks bought a home 10 miles north to move into from Iowa, but then my dad got a job 20 miles south that includes a home. Initial plan was for me to live there until they could move in, but that's out now that he got the other job.

So they talked and would like me to rent the home at $300/mo (half what I currently pay), then get a roommate who would pay more (probably >$600) to cover the remainder of the monthly cost. Their main concern is having someone they know live there, rather than have it just be a rental property (though I think they could easily rent it out for short (~6 month) stints for 1.5x average rent) and I'm the only one they know in the area without a firm housing situation. In exchange for the cheap rent I would also play landlord, handling maintenance. While cutting my rent in half sounds nice, it will still be an extra $100/mo in gas, and then there are utilities. I haven't had to personally pay a utility bill in about 8 years, but the last time I did they totaled multiple-hundred a month. Even if I split utilities with said roommate (who I would have to first find), I might be in the same situation cost-wise. And then I'm further away from the cat shelter (the only thing I EVER do outside of work,) can't walk to work, and now have to take care of the home/property (at my current place I do jack squat in that regard.)

I would get a hell of a lot more space to myself, including a spot in the garage, but fuck this all sounds like a lot of work that might even cost me more money than I pay now. I'm still depressed as hell so any effort sounds wasted, then there are those benefits I'd be losing, plus I'm going on a trip next week and have stuff still to do for that and don't have time or interest to really think about this right now.

I think I'll predicate this on the possibility of getting a cat. If I can have a cat, I'll take the extra cost. My dad is horrifically allergic to cats and dogs now, but I don't know that he would visit often (if at all.) My mom's work is closer to there than the new jobhome, so in acclimate weather she'd crash there but doesn't have allergies, so that's fine. (She also wants a pet, but my dad can't handle it, so she might take mine as a surrogate.) They were talking about pulling up the carpet to make sure to get rid of the dog dander from the prior owner, but that likely won't happen now, and if it does in the future they can do it then (they want to use the home as a place to retire to, which is why they didn't back out of the deal.) All other things being the same, I think having a cat would make me a much happier person.

Furthermore, average home rent for that area is $1100; I don't know my parents will be paying for their mortgage, but it's likely about the same, meaning I'd have to find someone who would pay $800/mo, at the least, to share it with me, and I don't know if that's realistic.

After further consideration I accepted the offer. While the money is a wash, I realized that I would no longer be near a moderately-used rail line or local airport, decreasing noise during the night, and my room wouldn't get super hot during the summer. Balancing everything else, what I gain is worth far more than I lose.

Also, they agreed to me getting a cat. <3 Unfortunately, I'm way over budget this month thanks to a friend's wedding, so I won't be able to adopt until the fall, probably.

This line of thinking is getting way too common. The big problem, especially in America, is that people feel entitled to shit when they grow up expecting that it's something that's normal to have.

Kids nowadays watch TV and movies and they expect to walk into high school and make a dozen lifelong friends off the bat and go on a bunch of wonderful adventures, and that it'll be the happiest and most memorable time of their lives. They expect to go off to College and sleep with a new girl every week and party their asses off every weekend, downing $50 bottles solo and never getting hung over. They expect to leave college and walk into a stable, well paying job that they keep for the rest of their lives, meet "the girl of their dreams", settle down immediately, and all throughout these post-puberty fantasies they'll be validated and redeemed every step of the way.

Life isn't like that, though. That's TV shit. That isn't normal. Getting close to people is hard. Studying and doing you is hard. Making it is hard. Not having available arm-candy or honor or praises or a plucky group of Saved By The Bell besties doesn't make you an abnormal freak. It makes you one of literally billions of people whose life doesn't reflect the media.

Most people that believe this stuff point their anxiety inward, and hate themselves for not living up to what they think is normal, but people like the shooter are a bit different; Not only does their sense of self revolve around living up to this one narrow standard, but they're mad at the world for 'withholding' happiness. It's such a bad way to see things. It's like the only kinds of people in the world are the ones that either give you what you want, or are somehow malevolently keeping you from being happy.

Reading his manifesto, he was super asocial. Tons of people tried to be friendly with him, but he was too embarrassed to deal with his own awkwardness and either avoided them or pushed them away. He even had a permavirgin friend that was super understanding, but he wrote him off as 'weak' for not getting as mad at the idea of other people having sex as he was.

The thing is, there are tons of people at his age in his position. The only thing that made him unique was his reaction to it. Most just live their lives, some get really sad, a few go on places like /r9k/ to vent.

He became angry at everyone around him and went around throwing drinks in people's faces and picking fights at parties.

Just making wild outrageous guesses on the internet, but I suspect this individual had a great deal of narcissism and an inability to really understand other people. I don't even mean his personality sucked, I mean the guy couldn't relate to others. He had the drive and the desire to be social, but the inability to comprehend what that even meant when in those situations.

I don't think this is a byproduct of an illusory 'Saved by the Bell' society. More than likely this is just an unfortunate example of mental illness. We barely understand the mind at all, when all is said and done, and knowing when somebody just has misunderstandings or is letting their ego dominate their ability to comprehend the world how it is, and when somebody just neurologically CAN'T grok the world as it is and how they relate to it, is a big fucking deal.

Up to now, all we've been able to really do is throw shit at the wall and see if it sticks to pacify and tranquilize potential problems with drugs. And if you were a member of the more socially upwardly mobile class, avoid the stigma of a pill popping regimen with expensive therapy, which is really just a method to get a high muckedy muck to vouch for your mental state for legal purposes. Where we're at now are the dark ages as far as mental health is concerned, and yes I am saying tossing lithium and side effect loaded drugs in the same boat as leeches, using mercury and bloodletting as treatment.

The biggest losers and victims here is that once again the issue of personal soverignty, innocent until proven guilty, gun rights and the proper respect for the mentally ill will come out. And society will flail around trying to solve the problem of how to handle a veritable bomb of an individual, weighing taking the toys away from the other kids against one or two of them misusing them and punishing everybody. And inevitably, the kids who don't want their toys taken away will oppose any and all attempts to make people guilty and unworthy until proven innocent, and either nothing will get done and we'll keep repeating this, or something will get done, the toys will be taken away from everyone and we'll still wind up with shit like this happening, because they're focusing on the wrong thing when searching for a solution.

There is only one proper course of action from here on out. We really, really need to finally finish mapping and understanding the brain, mental illness and how to determine problems and more importantly, definitive solutions. Only then, when we have the proper tools to identify, treat and neutralize these problems, and not the individuals or punish ALL of society, will we finally be able to properly deal with tragedies like this. Far as I can tell from the comfort of my armchair, this is the only workable solution.

Well, I finally went out with that cute girl from my rpg club. I hesitate to use the word "date", simply because I hesitated to use that word to her. We went to the local museum; a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon, even if we hardly spoke to each other when going round the galleries (I've really underestimated how introverted she is) but I made her laugh a few times. We had a nice chat afterwards over drinks... mostly about video games.

Now, here comes the difficult part; how do I actually ask her out? To be more specific, how do I phrase it? Remember, she's never gone on a date before, so she has no clue how this shit is supposed to work, or what hints to pick up on. I know I should take it cool, but I don't want to keep tiptoeing around this.

Maybe you should have asked her out for realsies? It's not rocket science or anything else that requires lots of thought. Ask her out, make it clear that it's a date, and that's it. If the woman says yes, well fine, go on the date. If she says no, move on with your life.

Realize depression is one of two things:
1.) An imbalance that causes an inability to stop feeling like shit. The cure is confiding with a doctor, pills, proper sleep patterns, fruits and vegetables, clean living, etc.
2.) An ego issue where you just need to get over the shit bringing you down. If you can't get over it and press on despite feeling depressed, stop feeling anything whatsoever and just be and do.

Part of being a man is knowing your feelings don't matter and of all the things that might get you help in this world, how you feel at any given time is not on the list.

Was a groomsman at my best friend's wedding, everything seemed to go very well. I'm happy for him.

But the entire event, especially the single slow dance I did--because they wanted the bridal party to do it--with a cute and apparently intelligent bridesmaid, is probably going throw me into a heavy bout of depression over the next few days. Physical human contact makes me incredibly uncomfortable, and the cute and the female just made it far worse. :|

Now I have to stay in an extended stay hotel until I can get an apartment (like the one I applied for opens up or I find something better). I think that's what's making it so scary. If I had an apartment it would feel a little more normal.

I'm just posting this here because I don't really have anywhere else to post it.

If you feel like joining the French Foreign Legion you need to show up to the recruitment centers ready to go. Once you pass the gates you won't be able to contact anybody for at least 4 months.

You can present yourselves at Lille, Nantes or Strasbourg, where they will make you fill out papers then they will send you to Paris where you will spend about a week before being sent to Aubagne. Or you can go to Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Perpignan or Toulouse, to fill out papers and be sent directly to Aubagne.

You can also show up at Paris or Aubagne directly. There they will take your stuff. Your identification, your bank cards, your pictures, anything related to who you are and may interest them in background checks and such. You get all of this back later on.

They will also confiscate certain things that you won't get back like sharp objects, food, drinks or condoms.

The papers you fill in will ask for who to contact in case of emergency, but your stuff will have already been confiscated, so remember an address and a number. Be honest about problems with the law if there's a record, because they will find out anyway. Medical on the other hand, if you had something 10 years ago but it doesn't bother you today and there are no visible scars, don't even mention it.

You will spend about a week with the same sweater and sweat pants in the winter or a t-shirt and shorts in the summer. You will pass a medical test, some IQ-like tests (number patterns, shape patterns and 3D), a first interview to put all that information you put on paper in the computer, a second about your motivation to join and of course a physical.

The physical consists of:
- pull-ups, which you do as soon as you get to the recruitment center. Your arms need to be straight each time you go down or they won't count (people seem to have a hard time understanding that part) and your chin needs to go above the bar each time you go up.
- luc leger (beep test)
- rope climb
- sit ups
There are supposed to be minimums, but they seem to vary on the person's mood when he's testing you.

You'll be given stuff when you go to the training part of Aubagne but before that, you'll need:
Socks (3 should be enough, you can wash them in the sink)
Underwear (3 should be enough, you can wash them in the sink)
Running shoes
Cheap plastic flip flops, they're to wear in the showers, in case someone has some foot infection
Razor, mandatory shaving every morning
Watch
Towel
Soap
Glasses if you need them

T-shirts can be useful, they'll give you a few clothes that you'll keep all week. t-shirt and shorts in the summer, sweater and sweat pants in the winter.

I might add more later, but I have to go right now.

Man, how do you hang out with dudes who just want girlfriends? I don't have one either, but I'm not exactly stressing about it. Maybe because I'm making other things happen in my life.

Just seems like I'm running into desperate dudes everywhere, which is kind of bad, because the last thing I want to hear is drunk late night whining about being alone. Damn, just have some fun, you fucks. The irony here is that some people would probably find the relationships they so desperately seek if they just toned down the thirst a bit.

I dunno, I'm just ranting. I've gotten over my own women problems and just want to build some buddy relationships, but I don't really want to do that with these people. And I don't know how to explain to them that being alone is not the end of the world. Especially when you're in your early to mid twenties. And also that being all sad sack-y isn't exactly turning you into a lady killer.

Also LIVE +4, LIVE! WHERE ARE YOU PEOPLE.

A few examples of what's going on:

One guy had a rough break up (much of which was his own fault, but I won't go into details) and I still have the feeling he didn't learn from the experience.

The other is a coworker who thinks that the women we work with are nice to me because I'm good looking (which is actually a complement, in regards to the good looks thing--I don't get that often).

So yeah, in some ways it's like I'm on the internet. I might tell the first guy off at some point, but I'm still trying to thing about what to do with the at work issue.

Yeah. It's my first time out on my own and I'm taking it hard. Like, really hard. I was actually having a hard time eating because I feel physically sick. I didn't realize homesickness could actually be a physical thing.

Talked to my cousin and she's letting me stay with her for a while. Her husband went through the exact same thing when he moved out the first time. He ended up moving home. I think he was the one who said I should stay with them because of that but anyway

Talked to my boyfriend who I'm going to be living with soon. He told me "Anon, would you rather live with your family for the rest of your life or live with me for the rest of your life?"

I know he didn't actually mean the "the rest of your life" part with regards to him... but he's right. I can't live at home forever, I need to try living on my own.

Mental afflictions can often take on physical symptoms and homesickness is probably the "illness" most people experience, a combination of anxiety, some confusion, and longing. Many universities/colleges deal with this by having an "Orientation" week, which is usually a flurry of activity that is only marginally related to the student's education: the vast majority is for distracting them and working through the homesickness.

And that's the best way to deal with it, really. The feeling will subside as you become comfortable/confident in your new surroundings, but that amount of time can vary by person and little can move it along faster. The best thing to do is just throw yourself into activities; unpacking and setting up your new place should be first priority, but you can only do that for so long, so you want to look for clubs or sports or volunteer opportunities or even a part-time job that will keep your mind off of it.

Eh. I don't think I could be in an open relationship, but it doesn't seem that alien to me or anything. Some people don't feel the need to be the only one in their partner's life, nor the need for their partner to be the only one in theirs. In a way, I admire the ability to not feel even the tiniest bit possessive about the person you love....even though I don't think I would be able to feel that way myself.

I've seen so many worse things on 4chan but for some reason someone having to resort to fucking a puppet on a webcam to make money just makes me feel miserable, especially the part where she talks about people in her chat asking her to do really degrading things. Asking someone to fuck a puppet isn't something you do because you're horny, you do it because you're bored and you want to laugh at them for your entertainment.

She could have said no so there's that but that runs the risk of losing viewers and money. It also doesn't help that she sounds insanely lonely and she keeps talking about how lonely she is. She writes about it to the point where the puppet seems like her only friend.

Just... I don't know. It makes me sad.

Her bringing up that she would be asked to fuck whatever anyone could see in the apartment sort of enforces the fact it was someone asking out of boredom.

Assuming you're male, your best bet is to see if there's a female you coworker you trust that would communicate it for you. If you tell her directly, no matter how seriously you're trying to be helpful, there's more than a good chance she'll take it wrong. Coming from a fellow female coworker (especially if she keeps your name out of it) it's more likely she'll take it as friendly help (assuming, of course, that she isn't doing that intentionally.)

The Hugbox Chronicles - Episode 5youtube thumb

Regarding people who have legitimate PTSD triggers and such, I get how the 4chan raid on Tumblr’s tagging system could have upset them and I feel bad for those people. 4chan pulled a dick move here in retaliation for a Tumblr ‘raid’ on 4chan, and that doesn’t deserve praise.

That said: all the Social Revenge Warriors and the people who use ‘triggers’ as an excuse to create hugboxes shoulda seen this coming, and they have only themselves to blame for it. (And this assumes that the initial 4chan ‘raid’ wasn’t an inside job intended to get the wasp hive riled up enough to attack Tumblr for shits and giggles.)

Agreed. While 4chan is certainly not the good guy in this, the folks from tumblr were absolutely fucking naive. So filled were they with their Social Justice Warrior Spirit that they thought they could march upon 4chan and somehow plug the darkest public pit of the internet through sheer proclamation. This wasn't just poking the hornet's nest, this was walking into a Bear & Hornet Anger Management class, where everyone was day one, locking the door behind them, and saying that don't have the right to be angry because everyone is equal.

That they not only expected to win but didn't expect such a retaliation shows just how shit their understanding of the internet is, and likely the world at large.

I don't think you need a conspiracy theory about this being set up from the inside, as I completely expect the SJW tumblrs to have been so insular to their hugboxes that they thought they could prevail.

No, see, I think someone could’ve created the original Shut Down 4chan tumblr as a way to rile up the Social Revenge Warriors, knowing full well they'd take the bait and run with it from there. I say ‘could’ve’ because there’s still a chance it’s legit (and if it is…yikes).

Yes, marvel has sucked for a long time, thank you for pointing out the obvious.

Although this is supposed to be a permanent canon change which is somewhat worse. It's also confusing because we already have Thor girl, who is basically a girl with the power of Thor and wears almost the same damn costume as the new Thor. This is like Superman becoming a girl who looks exactly like Supergirl.

In other words, no fucking thanks.

BTWs this has happened numerous times because Supergirl is just as strong as Superman and frequently fills in for him when absent.

Also, I'm late but that seems to be a mistake. I mean, I don't know your relationship at all, but proposing during sex just seems weird. And a bad idea.

But good luck in your journey, either way. Just because I say something is a bad idea doesn't mean it is. We all work differently.

Pole would be hard to carry with you at all times; plus, if a shark comes at you, if you happen to notice you won't have time to bring the pole to bear while the shark is still at a good distance. The shark will be in close, perhaps already nom nom nom, and the knife will be easier to loose and bring about. Supposedly the gas insertion would cause it to release you so you can swim free.

>I think I deserve a pretty girlfriend because of all the ugly girls I've dealt with in life.
>If I had a hot girlfriend, I'd be more likely to get into shape.

all of my wat

These are paraphrased quotes from some dude I know. I don't even know where to begin. This is coming from some dude who thinks he's ugly and wants a pretty girlfriend. He complains that ugly girls (at least ones in his own anecdotal experience) have bad personalities yet he wants a pretty girlfriend and think that he "deserves" one. And don't even get me on the subject of thinking you're entitled to a significant other. He also wants a girl that takes care of her appearance, but won't head out to the gym to take care of his own.

The way society has deemed anyone attracted to girls under 18 as pedophiles, and then labels them all child molesters, is pretty disgusting. Pedophile means being attracted to pre-pubescent children. 14-17 does not fall in that category. The fact that 14 is legal in a lot of countries (namely Japan) and that 16 is legal in most, means that being attracted to someone of that age is a normal human behavior. Now, is it wrong to have sex at the age of 14? Probably. But dating? I really, truly don't think so.

This is a misconception. While it is true that the NATIONAL age of consent in Japan is only 13, you should keep in mind that in the United States, there isn't a national age of consent at all--that doesn't mean fucking 8 year olds is "legal in America." Like the US, Japan mostly handles those matters at a state (or in Japan's case, prefecture) level, and the average age of consent is pretty much the same as America's and the rest of the world--somewhere between 16 and 18.

US Federal age of consent appears to be 16: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/2243 States can and do have higher, and the federal statute only kicks in when something crosses state lines or in federally-controlled areas (prison, maritime jurisdiction, etc.)

Though I thought it was 18, but can't find anything firm for that number. Also I need to scrub my search history now.

There's a very healthy approach when you like a girl that's like "hey go for it, ask her out, worst case scenario she turns you down."

I like to take that stance.

The problem is I've been turned down so much since I started practicing that theory, I've gotten so used to constant disappointment, the concept of dating is absolutely dead to me.

The worst thing, to me, is when you're best friends with a girl, like seriously best friends, and yet she has a boyfriend, her ACTUAL best friend. And yet at the same time, you really like her and wish that was you instead. You're single and she's not.

I'm not trying to be the "nice guy" who complains about being in the friend zone, but do you know how lonely it feels to play second fiddle to someone else? For them to be your best friend, but you're not theirs? For them to tell their significant other things that they'd never tell you even though since you're the closest person to them, you'd tell them things you wouldn't tell anyone else?

It's infuriating. Like, mentally I don't know how people handle shit like that. I certainly can't.

Your mistake is in investing this much emotion into a person you've never even kissed. If you're out of high school, you should be old enough to realize that love doesn't work like that, where you fall in love with someone you've never been in a relationship with. What you are feeling is lust, and fascination--probably complicated by a scarcity mentality, that you don't have many options to choose from in terms of romantic partners. It should not HURT to be friends with someone, because you should not be under the impression that someone you've never been on a date with is the best possible match for you.

If you have a strong attraction to someone and they are available, make a move. If they are not available, or not interested, then there are more than three billion other people out there who might be--maybe more like six billion, if you're bi. And MANY of them are going to be just as attractive to you--both physically and personally--as this person. Being turned down by someone you're attracted to is just a setback, not a tragedy. Don't make the mistake of building up a crush into anything more than that--that's what makes it hurt when it falls through. Not the rejection itself.

You can either continue to be her friend (and not be weird about it), or drop the friendship if you can't handle it. No use in making yourself (and her and her boyfriend) miserable because you're pining over her.
