If all electricity gave out and all our machinery stopped working

2. How long would take for us to get back to a modern (post-industrial) society?

1: Exceedingly fucked for a reasonable amount of time, but not on the level of fucked of say nuclear war.

2: Probably about a decade for things to fall back to a norm. If we were never able to find another source of electrical generation no matter how meager it'd take us about ten years to rebuild agricultural society. Speaking strictly for the West I would say that most people would have to leave cities and become subsistence farmers or psuedo sharecroppers, perhaps communes of sorts. Without electricity we simply could not continue our agricultural output per hectare and contemporary industrial farms would need tens of thousands of workers to continue at scale, it'd be more likely that the government would start splitting out land. Large cities and most of the american sprawl would be reasonably terrible in the transition, with starvation, water shortages, looting, and civil conflict on a large set of dimensions but I've no doubt we'd be able to overcome. After all, the electricity is gone and guns don't need that and as such the federal government should be able to reassert control.

I get confusion when I read regular comics

6 Nameless 2019-11-09T18:52:27
I used to have that back when I mostly read manga but now that I primarily read American and French indie comics I have the opposite issue; manga is really unnatural for me to read now.

It's weird because I spent the first decade and a half of my life pretty much exclusively with manga. You'd think the habit wouldn't break so easily.
7 Nameless 2019-11-12T20:29:53
Yeah getting used to it is quick, it's just switching context that's kind of confusing. Although going from western comics to manga is a bit harder, they tend to take more liberties with panelling and translated manga always look a bit off since the bubbles were drawn for vertical text.

>I primarily read American and French indie comics

now, there's nothing wrong with necrophilia in and of itself
6 posts omitted
8 Nameless 2019-10-29T05:33:50
There's no actual problem with that, since corpses aren't living beings. An onahole can't give consent either, but that's not a problem for anyone. It's not like "raping" a dead body is going to cause it any lasting mental trauma or anything.
The real problem with necrophilia is partially risk of diseases, but also largely just a general concept of respect for the dead. A dead body holds very high sentimental value for the friends and family of the deceased, so putting your dick into it would be highly disrespectful. It would be like going into your friend's house and then just cumming all over a beloved keepsake or family heirloom. That wouldn't be okay.

I wonder if any culture has ever had necrophilia as part of a funeral ritual. Like, the deceased's lover making love to them one last time before the body is buried or cremated. The concept seems really romantic to me.
9 Nameless 2019-10-29T09:05:43
There is everything wrong with Necrophilia.
10 Nameless 2019-10-29T11:21:40
Necrophilia is wrong because it's unsanitary. Fucking a rotting corpse is a great way to make your dick fall off.
11 Nameless 2019-10-29T16:42:50
It takes several days for the body to start decomposing, so if one gets on with it in first 24 hours then damage to genitalia shouldn't be a concern.
12 Nameless 2019-10-31T00:58:19
I did mention risk of diseases in my post, but as >>11 said, fucking a corpse doesn't always mean fucking a _rotting_ corpse.
If you were specifically addressing the last part of my post, eating a rotting corpse is also unsanitary, and yet cannibalism has been part of funeral rituals in the past. There are ways to be safe about it, chief among them being to not wait until the body starts rotting.

5 Nameless 2019-10-24T22:33:11
Sage posting won't change anything.
Basically "old" here means 2 possible things. The thread has fallen off the last page, or has received more than 500 posts.
(note that if a thread is pushed off the last page by someone bumping an "old" thread it doesn't count).

Once the thread is marked old then it doesn't matter if you bump it or not, it's going to be deleted after the time runs out.
This is the first time threads are going to be deleted though so I'm open to whatever people want. If your threads are marked old and you want them to be active again a mod can do it (just me for now). Just ask.

What makes you happy, 4Taba?
Serious question actually: what things really get your mood up and give you energy to face each day?
Furthermore, where do you think happiness in life lies?
2 Anonymous 2019-09-23T01:39:34
I think trying to be happy is a luxury in this world, which is sad as fuck.
Most days I think are just spent trying not to feel like shit, and that's true of more people in this world than would ever admit to it.
Ironically that's part of the problem. The average person wants to be viewed as happy by others more than they want to actually feel happy on the inside, so they'll never want to admit they aren't, and therefore we never end up building anything in this world to be genuinely happy about. Everyone just says they're happy and then wastes their life away doing fuck all but reproducing and slaving away at a "job".

There really isn't anything that can make me consistently happy. Some things have higher success rates though, like music maybe. But happiness really just seems to be a random burst of happiness that has no actual cause.
Almost like your brain is just sick of everything being so dull or outright horrible all the time that it decides to be happy for no reason to balance itself out or something.
3 Anonymous 2019-09-23T08:56:07
Happiness is only a luxury for the more contemplative types, eg the people who use imageboards. If you think too much about life you'll start seeing how vast and chaotic the world is and start feeling overwhelmed. If thinking about something brings you nothing but misery and you have no practical reason to think about it, simply put it out of your mind
4 Anonymous 2019-09-23T14:27:25
It goes beyond that stuff. It's not that there are problems, it's that there are obvious things in everyone's life that make them miserable and they don't acknowledge it.
Take the workforce for example. Does anyone actually believe that a 40hr workweek was some magic number that some geniuses in a think tank came up with to create the perfect balance of life, progress, and work? Does anyone actually believe that number just so happens to optimize practically every single job out there?
No. It really might as well have been a number chosen at random. Our society stabilized itself around that number, but it could have easily been 30, or 20.
In fact, I would even argue that some lower numbers would create more progress. Especially scientific and cultural progress.

Another way to put it is, we are still living in a survival-based system. The game of life is literally just a survival game. Despite all our technology and advances we're really not that far removed from our hunter-gatherer ancestors (and believe it or fucking not they actually worked LESS than the average person today does). You stop working you die.
The dreams of the average human being go no further than survival-based dreams and instincts. It's just boring, tedious, and sad.
Almost nothing in this world is even actually built to make you happy. That's only the secondary motive, with the primary motive being money, which is just more survival shit. That includes movies, shows, and even music to some extent.

You think too much. ゆっくりして
5 Nameless 2019-10-21T02:14:47
I think I have some distant dream of owning a nice vineyard with beautiful children and a good life, but I also think it is a lie I tell myself everyday so that I get out of bed and assume the guise of a productive member of society. I suppose maybe that is what adulthood is, but at 23 I am saddened by the fact that I already feel like I'm spinning my tires on my way to the grave.

With that said, I think personal contentment was never something that made me happy. What I feel makes me feel genuinely happy is seeing others and our species succeed; even if I might never set foot on Mars I would be overjoyed for us to do so. When someone creates a work of art I don't think I ever feel happiness driven by a personal relationship to the subject at hand, but I am gladdened to see that someone else was able to create something like that. It is kind of weird. I don't lament my failings, I just wish others the best.

My favorite show ever is Steven Universe. It hits all of my buttons in a way no other show has been able to do. But at the same time, I cannot in good faith reccomend it to anyone. The inconsistent animation quality, the weird pacing, and the clumsy handling of its themes make the show a hard sell to anyone who isn't already drawn to the show's concepts and general style

I wouldn't really consider it a guilty pleasure. For me, guilty pleasures are things that you like for very subjective and personal reasons that don't really stand up to scrutiny. I'd consider a lot of early newgrounds cartoons to be guilty pleasures: from voice acting to animation, there's no aspect of most of those cartoons I consider to be done well or even competently, but I like them anyway because I grew up with them. Steven Universe isn't like that though. There's things about the show that I can point to and say "this is what I enjoy about the show and here's why I enjoy it".

I want to know if anyone else gets knows this feeling. There's no term for it, or at least none that I'm aware of, and it makes the subject really frustrating to talk about.

I like the suspense in the second half of the first season all the way to the "capture Peridot/Malachite arc". After that everything got pretty boring, although if there was anything enjoyable about this show that wasn't obvious political pandering that would be it. It's pretty much the closest kids today can get to a classic Toonami experience

I poke fun at this show a lot because I truly think it's terrible and the fanbase is... well... they make Bronies look like descent members of society by comparison. I hated most of the first season. The only time I got any enjoyment out of it was when Lapis showed up. It seemed like finally the story was moving along. But nope, next episode we just cut back to Steven's annoying bullshit.
My bottom line for SU is that it's a terrible show with an even worse fanbase made by a talentless hack who is using social justice bullshit to keep her show afloat... it does have SOME good moments, but then those moments get ruined as soon as they go back to the usual bullshit.

Also, Pearl raped garnet. Just thought I should reassure that.
5 Nameless 2019-10-17T22:05:37

But aside from that, most of the problems you and many others have with SU can be explained with a simple reminder that the show is made for teenage girls. Women don't want high stakes or an epic story with tons of action. They want melodrama and cute shit.

And you know what? There's nothing wrong with that. Women technically make up the majority of the population, so it makes sense that there be media for them and only them. SU is very upfront about what it is, and getting angry at it for being that is a very silly attitude to have

Gamer/comicsgate types are starting to get on my nerves. It's not that they offend me, which they don't, it's that they annoy me. They do a bunch of little things that piss me off over and over again, and I see them goddamn everywhere.

I think the underlying thing I hate about them is the idea that art should be made specifically to their tastes and everything else is wrong. If you don't like something don't goddamn watch/play/read it. And I get it, criticism should be a thing. But making a video like "SJW doomed? Comic doesn't sell well XD" isn't criticism, it's just you having a circlejerk with a bunch of other dipshits.

Being drawn to things you hate is really annoying. I have that habit too and I want to overcome it for clear reasons.
That said, Gaters/Far-right type will flow in to any topic where they can complain about their pet evil. It's really annoying if multiple unrelated threads turn in to whine fests about how their preferred boogieman is ruining the world. It's rarely a bid to solves problems either, just a bunch of dudes venting and stoking anger. I know some boards on 4chan may as well be recruitment camps for how much people screech about their politics.
