>>400948 U.N. charter says that nobody can claim land on Antarctica anymore. But if you are just going for naming locations, you might have to deal with geologist, cartographers or some other scientists if it isn't named already.

Friday nights are typically the times when people go out to do things—see a movie, go to a restaurant, whatever—to kick off the weekend. TV ratings/viewership numbers are noticeably lower on Friday nights as a result.

It's amazing how many people will upload episodes of TV shows or copyrighted music, and say it's fair use. I'm not a suit so I don't really have anything against people uploading copyrighted shit on Youtube, but don't pretend your piracy is "fair use" just because you're not making money off it. It makes ACTUAL fair use meaningless to those of us that don't abuse it.
You could put forth the argument—don’t know how well it’d go over in court—that sharing complete works still technically covered by copyright because they’re out of print/unavailable in commerce is an attempt to preserve such works for future archival and research, which would turn such sharing into Fair Use. (A good example lies in abandonware sites that distribute games you can’t find on legal services and would remain otherwise unavailable.)
Well, needed to vent so here goes. I thought I'd be a way better artist by 21 than I actually am.
Like, when I was say, 18 or 19 I saw 20 and 21 year old artists and I'd love their art style and they'd be super good at everything and I thought by drawing every day I'd just be that good but nope.
Hell when I was like 16 and 17 there was this one artist whose style I always loved and they were just 19 and thought I'd be that good and aaaaack. I GUESS I haven't improved because all I've cared about has been getting comic pages done on time instead of good? Maybe I should work on that? Take a Just Practise weekend...
Draw a whole bunch of different things. Draw the same thing in different styles. If there’s a certain thing that makes you flinch before you draw it, face the flinch and draw that thing—hell, draw it dozens of times so you no longer flinch when drawing it.
>>401074 Well, I decided to so some research (I was looking up slant rhymes anyway) and here it is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhyme#Identical_rhymes Is the repeated use of the same word a rhyme? Technically, yes, I think. Then again, hammer and carpenter are technically rhyming, despite not being a 'perfect rhyme'. Is it a perfect rhyme? No, as "the articulation that precedes the vowel in the [rhyming] words must differ". Both nigger and nigger make the same 'n' sound before the 'i' [derp] and are therefore not a perfect rhyme in the way that leave and believe are also not a perfect rhyme.
So we can both be correct and incorrect if we want. Schrödinger would be proud.
>>401485 Generic, untargeted spambots care not about popularity. I have an old vBulletin installation that probably hasn't had a legit user post in years, but is filled with spam. I'm too lazy to clean it up/take it down.
>>401486 I'm honestly surprised that rule has worked as well as it has. My guess is that most spambots don't bother looking at results, or if they do it's a simple "posted/not posted". It's not worth a spammer's time to change his system to deal with ours (on account of being pretty slow.)
>>401510 > Do they want to sound weak? Actually, yes, kind of. Men respond better to women when they are able to see them as submissive--a confident/bold woman is often seen as a bitch or a ball-buster, and men tend to be quite cruel to them.
>>401511 Maybe I evolved above the average man, but when I hear a submissive woman, I don't think "weak and in need of protection", but instead think "scheming and emotionally manipulative, she is all trouble".
Why do commercials never do comparisons with any specific product or brand? Now they say "generic" or "leading brand" when in the 90s, they actually did some shitslinging directly at their competitors? I thought that was legal?
>>401586 I think it can be seen as defamation or some shit (im not a lawyer), like an attack on a product. Also, it's easier to prove wrong if they list the product, leading to false advertising issues.
Person I enjoyed chatting with turned into a twitch streamer. So now talking to them in any attempt is twitch emoji nonsense and more sarcasm. But I respect them wanting to make a living on their own talents.

I'm so fucking sick of it. I've never been anything but kind to people and yet people are fucking scared of me. I have depression and social anxiety but besides that, I've never had a sociopathical thought in my entire life. The last thing I want to do is hurt anyone. But I know all my teachers talk about me behind my back.
>>401658 I get some of that, took me a whole long time to straighten things out and find my path. But the crux of that is that if I had found this path earlier without being who I am not, I would not that version of myself on this path and its quite a difficult one.
>Playboy will stop publishing nude pictorials next year
I know they already sell non-nude versions of the magazine overseas (and at a profit, no less!), but still, end of a fuckin’ era, man.
MovieBob asked a good question on Twitter: who gets to be the final nude centerfold? (“I mean this is gold rush time if you're a female celeb who's never done nudes before - end of an institution and all that.”)
>>401658 Get fit, man. 1.) it only sucks for the first month or so, after that it's pretty dang fun, I really look forward to going to the gym on my days off. Gives you the excitement of setting a new high score or record every single week, and it's very easy to see progress since everything is numbers. 2.) it won't make you any less awkward and shy, probably (ymmv), but it does change how people treat you. Fat quiet dudes are losers and school-shooters, buff/fit quiet dudes are serious and dedicated, fat+muscular quiet dudes are gentle giants 3.) even if it solves nothing else, at least you'll be buff and have a reason to leave the house.
Diet + exercise are one of the areas where I actually do know what I'm talking about, if you have questions or want myths dispelled or even if you want a concrete diet+exercise plan because you suck at winging things, I'm more than willing to help.

>>401727 Canned sardines, pouch tuna, and eggs are all cheap and very high in protein. Chicken thighs are dirt cheap, and not bad at all for you. Whey protein, as long as you aren't just paying for the brand, is probably the cheapest dollar:protein ratio you can get--i get mine from MyProtein, super cheap comparatively. For your non protein needs, potatoes are insanely cheap, sweet potatoes a bit less so. Rice and beans are both cheap starches, and old fashioned Oatmeal is even cheaper, plus has the benefit of having a low glucose index, which means that it won't spike your insulin, which means you stay full longer. Bananas and apples are both pennies apiece. Those frozen steamer bags of veggies are like $2 each and can easily last for two meals.
I'll type up more about supps when I'm not at work, yeah?
Please don't bump the old /cog/ music thread (>>>/cog/188461) when there was already a second one (>>>/cog/197677). I made the second one when the older first one had apparently only temporally disappeared from the pages.
>>401727 >diets for gaining muscle Just remember to work out to make sure the energy goes on as muscle and not fat. The diet itself isn't a guarantee. >that kid who did Gallon Of Milk A Day and didnt work it and ended up looking pregnant
>>401735 On that note... >>401727 The most important thing you can do, diet-wise, if you're trying to get some muscles, is eat enough. That's why, if you're a gym regular, there are all those other regulars who are ALWAYS there and NEVER make any progress--they're not eating enough. This is why diets like GOMAD exist: because you can't trust a small person to eat enough, you have to get them to drink their calories. You can get big and swole eating nothing but McDoubles and a multivitamin, long as you're eating enough of them. (though I don't recommend that for a lot of reasons)
Anyway, supplements. I...am not sure what you're wanting to supplement? There are supps for everything, even outside the gym. So I'll go over the most popular ones I guess. >Whey protein Legit. It's not a magic gains-producer, it's essentially just a way to get protein if you're not getting enough without having to eat 2-3 steaks a day. It's just food, brah. >creatine monohydrate Literally the most researched sports supplement in existence. Safe, effective. It makes your muscles somewhat bigger (though somewhat softer) and increases your endurance. Won't directly add any strength, but the fact that it lets your muscles go longer without getting fatigued will make it seem that way. Downsides including speeding up the balding process if you're predisposed to MPB, and absolutely devastating your stomach (which is why I can't take it, I have a sensitive baby stomach thanks to having some organs removed) >Vitamin D Uh, if you have a vitamin D deficiency (protip: if you're posting on /baw/ you do), take some? Vitamins are good bro. >Fish oil An absolute godsend for soreness. My doc recommended I eat more fatty fish when I told her about some joint pain I was having, started eating a tin of brisling sardines every night and I've never felt better wrt soreness and pain. I imagine taking the capsules works just fine too. >Zinc This is something I hear YMMV on, but personally, it sent my sex drive through the roof. 10/10 would recommend.
If you have anything specific you want advice on, I'll be glad to share what I know, but "supplements" is a pretty vast umbrella term.
I'm watching a talk (like TED talks but not) made by a game producer I follow, and he keeps throwing in little jokes but no-one is laughing. It's kind of awkward and there is still another half an hour.
>>401767 As an Australian, I can empathise. Hang in there, bro. *chans are your new best friend.
>>401738 I looked for it though all the pages and couldn't find it. Asked moose to look aswell to see if it wasn't just me, and moose couldn't find it also. I also pestered moose enough to implement mp3 support on /cog/. And I would like to ask you why did you bump the old /cog/ music thread when there was a new one on the front page?
>>401742 It's called rōmaji (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romanization_of_Japanese) and it allows people who can't read japanese to read it in english.
I was working in a computer lab for a class at school, and I was feeling cheerful and hummed a few lines of a song without realizing it. A few people probably heard. I think this is something I might just do on occasion without realizing it and I feel like it's a pretty weird thing to do.
>>401832 I don't like small pixel art on its own. Not because of the style, I fucking love the style, but because I can't get a good look of the image's details (and I haven't figured out how to zoom in while keeping the image clean and pixelated instead of trying to fix it like a photo)
Unrelated (I swear; I thought of it while browsing another site)
>I can see a few strong issues in an artists image (mainly anatomy/perspective) >All other comments are praise or irrelevant >Not sure whether to critique or ignore I ended up praising (I like the pic) but also pointing out one of the clearest flaws. If they react positively, I might start pointing out more. I just love critiquing stuff.
>>401833 There was one suggestion/issue pointed out on the PJ forums, but I’m gonna hold off for a bit on fixing it because I’ve done enough work on it for the past week and I need a break. I may even scrap that one and do a whole different pose.
>>401846 If it’s your browser, I’m not sure how to fix that. If it’s an image editor and you’re trying to resize it, do so without any resampling and using whole number factors (2×, 3×, you get the picture). If it’s an image editor and you’re zooming in, stick with whole number factors of zoom so pixels don’t look blurred as fuck.
>>401741 This is kind of late, but thanks for the info. I'll probably stick to just whey protein out of those, with the occasional fish dinner. I really dislike eating so a drink-based source of nutrients should work well for me.
You're probably at some place that doesn't allow for that shit and got called out on it. Or maybe you were just around some people who didn't care for it. Either way, if you must make rape jokes, there's always 4chan.
>>402039 They used to be used in far more places than 4chan though. Newgrounds for example had flash cartoons that played rape for laughs. "Haha rape" used to be a common phrase in gaming. Now it's not cool.
I'm getting so sick of this tumblr shit man. >"There are over 60 different genders!" >"I'm genderfluid!" >"I'm nonbinary!" No you're fucking not. You're having an identity crisis. You're confused. Stop trying to make yourself a special little snowflake. You are either male, or female. Even if you're trans, you're still one of those two genders.
>believing in a gender binary >thinking biological sex is a binary and not a spectrum based on multiple factors that themselves exist as spectrums >getting mad about kids exploring their identities rather than having breakdowns at age 45
>>402138 How does it affect you though? Why not just let people find their own identities rather than insisting that they conform to your rules?
Sure, if they're asking you to build a separate bathroom for every tick they see as being on the gender spectrum, you can stand up for yourself and say "that is too expensive and is a ridiculous thing to demand of me." But if the extent of what they expect from you is to use certain pronouns, how is that worth fighting over?
Someone claims it, exists. Gender's like money, hombre. We agree a piece of metal is one-tenth a piece of paper. Some people agree a person born with "male" parts but who assumes a feminine role is a hijra or māhū, or a person born with female parts who takes a male role is a burrnesha.
>all to encourage identity issues.
Ok, so "identity I don't like" = identity issues. Got it.
Non-binarity and genderfluidity do have basis in medical science, but they're both pretty incredibly rare. I don't really like people using "nonbinary" as a gender identity when really they mean "I'm a tomboy" or "I'm pretty feminine," because it undermines the authenticity of some peoples' real honest contrasting gender identities and biological sex. I've known a dysphoric trans person who had a lot of trouble getting their doc to believe them because they'd seen so many "transtrenders" that they really had upped their bar so that they didn't prescribe HRT to someone who just thought it would be cool to be a different gender.
Also the concept of "fictionkin" (or spacekin, animalkin[back in my day they were just called furries], etc) is pretty ridiculous and most people who adopt that label are overall awful. Most of them are like 13 I guess but they should still be informed that pretending they're an oppressed minority because they like pretending they're a galaxy is really hurting a very serious cause.

Why would anyone call someone a friend and a douchebag in the same sentence? I have friends that can be jerks every now and then but if they persisted in jerkitude to douchebaggery I would stop calling them a friend. That's just a fact.
>>402299 >Why would anyone call someone a friend and a douchebag in the same sentence? Yeah, I don't get it. Douchebaginess is subjective, but anyone I consider a douchebag is not someone I consider a friend.
I had a nice time at my stepborther's house, sitting by a fire as trick or treaters passed by the driveway. I made a mask from a gallon jug of lemonade that I cut up, but later switched to wolfman since my dad had taken off that mask a few hours earlier.
I saw someone pop up in my Facebook feed that I haven't seen since high school and he's matured so well that I'm actually proud. He always had issues in elementary school with reading and grades and in high school he could have ended up being involved in a lot of drug issues (my home county is bad with heroin) since the rest of his friends were. He could have ended up being a massive redneck who sits around and drinks beer all day but he didn't. He could have ended up a lot of things but he's a mature, grown adult.
I'm so proud. Seriously. This guy will never know how happy I am that things turned out well for him but I wanted to share with someone.
I want to ask questions but I already know the answer to them. There is only one way, and it requires effort. I already know what needs to be done, but yet I will be thinking the exact same thing next week.
Actually, fuck this self-piteous, vague post. I can fix this.
I actually did something for Halloween for the first time in my life; my mother's always hated Halloween (not a religious thing, she just doesn't see the point) so I never went trick or treating... but a friend of mine invited me to a Halloween night at a local rock club he goes to a lot, so I figured "why the fuck not?" and had a damn good time. I missed Thriller, Let's Do The Time Warp and the Ghostbusters theme tune while queuing at the bar. >>402203 >mfw she's moved from texting to WhatsApp, so she didn't notice my texts until lately >mfw she's really busy with uni and her new boyfriend, so she can't make it

Trying to transfer bookmarks onto my Android phone is the most infuriating thing I've encountered in a long time. Chrome is a piece of shit on Windows that forces updates without a reasonable way to turn them off, and the sync to Chrome on Android is only available as long as you're signed in to it. Firefox won't sync because I have too many bookmarks, but I know from past use that it will store them on the phone afterwards without needing to be signed into sync, so I would need to delete about 1500 of them to get it to work. All the bookmark import apps are shit because they don't store folder structures properly, giving a horrible mess of all bookmarks sorted alphabetically. Fuck.
Dumb question, but is there any particular reason undercuts are so ubiquitously popular on Tumblr? I don't really see them that often in real life, yet it shows up in a ton of fanart all the time regardless of fandom, or character's race, gender, personality, or species.

Fucking hell, it's not like getting counselling was this difficult back when I was first diagnosed with depression. Did I just luck out and get a reasonable, helpful human being who didn't want about half what I get every month
>>402553 >take 5 hours to come up with good Instagram name >follow all friends >they all have better usernames than me, no need for underscores like me
It would be just fine if my name wasn't a noun+noun combo that sounds really cool together because then I could just use that. But of course it was taken already by someone who undoubtedly does not have that as a real name

Sometimes being very thorough and very careful with your technology pays off.
Someone clued me in to the rain dance that will summon Anonex. The boards are only temporarily back up, I've downloaded the existing file (something I should have done months ago) and am in the process of doing a database backup. This week I'll work on transitioning it to my own host and then we'll get this party starteddoing what it had been doing.
It always weirds me out when I see older people on fansites and such that talk about their spouse or children. I always assumed that once you hit a certain age, you stop using the internet because you spend too much time paying bills, having a job and raising your kids. And the only website you do go on is something like Facebook.
I'm always amused by skilled professionals impersonating unskilled people, such as million-dollar actors playing a character who is a bad actor, or a talented illustrator making a drawing appear as if a sloppy child did it. Even in the apparent lack of skill, you can see skill.
I'd love if people commented or something on my pictures on Instagram just to know that maybe someone is really appreciating my photography. I do put a lot of thought into the pictures, I use relevant hashtags... There's got to be something I'm missing.
>>402727 Does Instagram have a feature like "Don't make my photos searchable/public by default" that you may have missed? I know nothing of Instagram except that the once-cool kids use it to photograph their lunch.
I try to feel sympathy for my dad, I really do. But his alcoholism is just spiraling out of control so bad, I can't comprehend it. It's not even the use that I don't get: getting smashed is fun, and when your marriage has gone from tragedy to farce and back again, turning off the give a fuck is necessary for survival. I've been in the "use shit to escape from feelings" boat before, many times. It's the lack of strategy that I don't get. He just runs off and gets hammered at lunch before a client comes in, or at the end of the day before dinner. Jesus, can't you just wait until after work? And not fucking drive drunk? It's not like he's even in the house with mom anymore, so he's free to get shitfaced nightly if he wants.
>>402785 I had that problem. It's like virtual hoarding.
Then I realized that every image I had that wasn't OC could be found again somewhere online so I stopped. Now the only reason I save something is if I'll use it for something besides just posting it on an imageboard.
I used to have the same problem until I realized how much I actually look at the images I save—especially the furry art I’ve collected over the past, oh, fifteen years. Now I only save images I think are worth having as readily available inspiration in case of a 'Net outage or a gallery wipe. (Or I save images to a download folder, use them once for an imageboard post, and delete them later.)
I say save as much as you can. It'll be valuable to future generations. our digital hordes will be valuable documents of both our own evolving personalities and internet culture. We can't count on the net just saving it all in the ether. Hard drives break, websites go down, servers clear old data, and there's no telling how long before the internet becomes (truly) censored and/or privatized.
>>402805 >everyone and their grandma You obviously don't count religious fanatics, ignorant or under/uneducated people as "everyone". >provably theoretically And you don't even know how Theories can be more solid than Laws. Theory of Relativity is one I can definitely remember off the top of my head, while I'm not sure about Gravity. I think Gravity might be a Theory and a Law.
>>402806 Gravity is one of the least well understood and most controversial things in the scientific world because it's so fucking weird. There are a bunch of different theories that describe bits and pieces of how Gravity works like the theory of relativity and the theory of gravitation, and different predictions of how it behaves like Newton's Laws.
>>402808 If everyone in the academic circle agrees on a theory, it becomes the commonly accepted theory, which is often misinterpreted as a definite fact by other people who have better stuff to do.
I mean, lots of people believe gods exist, despite their existence only being provably anecdotally. It answers enough questions to be accepted as a common idea, and thus a majority of people accept it as a fact.
I've finally discovered that I really can't get any work done unless I am listening to something. I absolutely can't do anything in silence, it's impossible. Not even music really. It has to be podcasts or something.
I always feel like people make their Youtube channels appear too professional for what their content actually is. If all you do is make Let's Plays, or Youtube Poops, why make custom thumbnails, intros, endorsements etc? It's embarrassing to me, because it feels like selling out, or making a desperate attempt at trying to be popular. For that kind of content, its primary audience doesn't care about any of that.
>>402872 For poops it seems kind of counter to the point of poops, but with LPs I get it. It has more to do with feeling like what you're putting out is of high quality, that even if it's a kind of entertainment that isn't usually considered "good" people can at least tell you put effort into it and actually tried to make something worth watching rather than just farting out videos and expecting people to watch and like it.
At least that's how I approached it when I tried to do the lets play thing. Being introduced to LPs through retsupurae probably had something to do with that.
I really need to find a new apartment, but my anxiety is keeping me from calling as many people as I should, if I ever seriously want to find one. It takes me like 4 hours to gather enough courage for a phone call and then 2 more hours to calm down afterwards. This is the worst.
>>402970 I think I'll actually agree with this, to an extent. If you don't mesh with your partner, it won't last, but you don't have to have quirky TV-show style chemistry where you play off your partner on everything and just ~always~ have something to talk about and stuff.
>>402986 Probably super-dry air, makes it easier to build up a charge. Invest in a humidifier for use at home, or just make sure to regularly touch metal door frames etc. with your arm or back of your hand.
If you’re within a couple of years of 18, it doesn’t seem as skeevy as someone, say, twice as old trying to get in the 18-year-old’s pants. An older person who leverages social influence/authority over the 18-year-old as an “easy” route to sex makes that skeeviness all the worse.
>>403069 I thought the whole appeal in art books was seeing how other artists do things, to expand your base of influences and appreciate the work of other craftsmen. I probably would've never bought an art book if I weren't an artist myself.
>>403085 I like the idea of "Like the art, hate the artist". Bad people can do good things and vice versa. I know a couple who have opinions I strongly disagree with but I still appreciate the art. ↑ don't be this guy
>>403100 Right?? This one place has like, this version of the western bacon - double patty, onion rings, bacon... But the meat was soooo tasty and juicy and it had this special barbacue sauce infused with chipotle. Local burger joints ARE the tits!
>>403100 I only recently got a hamburger with a long toothpick (thing) down the middle, so that it doesn't burst when you try and eat it. I've never otherwise been able to comfortably eat a hamburger bigger than my mouth.
>>403109 One with a giant upside down fry basket on it. Also it's a light water nuclear reactor building, which sounds like an odd place to get burgers. Where I am there's mostly just chains and local diners that aren't particularly burger-focused.
>>403117 >it's a light water nuclear reactor building which sounds like an odd place to get burgers Yep, someone knows their stuff. I didn't get the burger in the reactor though, a few buildings down on the same compound is the canteen for workers and visitors/tourists (which just doesn't look as interesting).
The fry basket is for shredding planes in case of a terrorist kamikazi attack.
I wish there were "dick move" laws. Like, there are things 90% of people consider a dick move even if they're legal. So I wish we could press charges under people just being douchebags. This is mainly for copyright stuff and suing for stupid reasons.
You won't ever get over anxiety by sitting around trying to get over it. You have to force yourself out there and talk to people, or do whatever else it is you feel anxiety over. It's going to be awkward as fuck and you'll hate it, but keep doing it and eventually it gets easier. You don't even have to succeed or be good at it, but just trying makes it soooo much easier to deal with.
I hate shows like Parks & Rec. Not for their actual content, but I hate the trend we're seeing in sitcoms now where you film with a shaky cam to make it look like it's real life or something, even when none of the dialogue is in any way realistic. I can't even properly explain why it pisses me off, it just does.
>>403274 Maybe it pisses you off because it looks like shit.
Shots are usually still because that's how people are used to looking at things, we aren't always wobbling around or standing on a boat. A normal camera view reflects this.
Shaky cam is based around the idea that we are looking through a camera, and for fake documentaries I can see why they'd do it this way. The part that doesn't make sense is that any actual documentary not made by retarded monkeys is filmed with a still cam, because they want to look professional. Now we've got all these professionally made fake documentaries trying to look as amateur as possible, and it just forms this big stupid circle, like an idiot ouroboros. Amateurs imitating pros and pros acting like amateurs.
To be honest, despite my rant I don't really care as long as it isn't really overblown. And as long as it's actually meant to be viewed through a camera, if it's a show with a natural pov then it bugs the hell out of me because there's no reason for it to be shaking. The second half of District 9 really bugged me because of that.
I’ve been looking for this specific mix of this song for years. Literally. Back when I ran TGFB (and that meant something), I even promised adspace to anyone who could find this specific version of it. Don’t ask me why I’ve been searching for it for so long; even I couldn’t tell you. Point is, this video (and the MP3 I just ripped from it) is as close to having a pristine copy of it as I can and holy shit I am just grinning-ear-to-ear happy to have finally found it.
And man, I wish I could find a higher-quality rip of that version of the song—shit, she’s on Twitter and Soundcloud, maybe I could ask for an upload just for the hell of it—but I’ll take what the fuck I can get at this point and be grateful for it.
>>403338 Floating on top of the water means the friction being exerted between the boat being pulled and the water itself are minimal. Absent friction, any source of kinetic energy is going to cause something to move, even if it's much smaller than the object being pushed or pulled. Wheels make it possible to do similar things with cars, though there's more traction from the weight of the cars being pushed on the ground, so the allowable size differences are different. But if you think about it, a semi truck works much the same way--the "truck" itself is much, much smaller than the bed that it's pulling a lot of the time, often even when you look at mass rather than just volume.
Reviving an old thought: >at party with drunk people >get with a stranger via mutual friends >she asks my number >I forget to ask hers Does this still count? we had half a conversation the day after and that was it. Neither of us were interested in further interaction
>watching Christmas music special on TV with parents >for some reason, Mull of Kintyre by Wings comes on >Mum immediately rips into Linda McCartney, asking what Paul saw in her >I google what Paul said about Linda in interviews, and show those to her >mfw she "Yeah, but she didn't look good on camera!"
>/v/ looks down on a game unless it has the bestest latest graphics >/co/ looks down on a comic unless is has absolute god-tier artwork with tons of detail >/g/ looks down on an operating system unless it's Gentoo I think I'm starting to see a pattern. . .
>>403457 My old dog died some years ago. I had him from age 7 to 21. That was pretty fucking rough. To make matters worse, I had already planned to visit home the weekend AFTER he died. I was really close to seeing him for one last time. I was pretty gutted.
What helped me get over his death was the realization that he was a stray that we found. Had we not taken him in, he may not have lived to see 14 additional years. Your situation may not be similar to mine, but take solace in the fact that she landed in the hands of good owners and lived a long, happy life.
Another dog I lost (though he didn't pass away) because of my parents losing their home and having to move to a small apartment. That one still gets to me. I try not to think too much about him because there was nothing I could do. I hope someone adopted him.
My mom finds Pop Tart commercials offensive. The ones with the anthropomorphic Pop Tarts that get eaten by other Pop Tarts. She finds them offensive because it "promotes cannibalism" and that they're "disturbing". I think she may be losing her mind.
Aside from the fact that SJW now means "any person that isn't a raging bigot", what the hell does that have to do with cannibalism? I wasn't aware that this was a social issue that people felt was a problem in 2015's America.
>gonna see Star Wars on the 18th >suddenly work assigns me a shift then, two days before without consulting me or even notifying me (had to look at my schedule to see it)
I'm trying to trade it but if I can't I'm gonna call in sick. If you change a person's work schedule for the next three days you should fucking ask them or at least notify them. I'm tired of this place fucking up all the plans I make.
It is also this way because any argument on the Internet has a 75% chance of being invaded by actual retards and trolls who will pretend to be retarded. For example, a "thought control vs letting people decide what is right" argument has a high chance of being invaded by troles who will say something like "if you are not a neo-nazi like me you as assjeydubya". That is a derail and most likely a deliberate attack to kill the argument.
No matter what argument it is, always check if either side has retards and trolls "helping". Every time a member of either side makes a statement, ask yourself: is this person – retarded – trolling (good trolls will NEVER admit to being what they are) before taking their argument seriously.
I've never really thought about it, but I subconsciously assumed that all Islamic women who wear hijabs were conservative (apart from bright coloured ones, which I haven't seen IRL). It doesn't help that the only person I know who wears one is quiet and sticks to her group of friends.
