When I'm walking my dog I like to pretend I'm on the run from an elite force of dragon people and she's sniffing out a route to infiltrate their castle without being spotted. This involves a lot of paranoid looking around, hiding and running. I wonder if the whole village thinks I'm retarded?

I assume people like it so much because it makes them feel superior while not demanding any sort of work from them. Not that people won't put work in to the shtick, but it's still an easy way to assert yourself online, especially in 'no rule zones'.

After years of blankness, I'm starting to have dreams again. I can remember most of them, naturally, but I'm glad that they're actually becoming common occurrences again.

I do somewhat remember one I had last night though: It was set in a cold, tundra-like landscape. People seemed to generally be rare and were scattered about. It starred two girls and a guy, I don't think they were named, and they were traveling about and meeting people. There was some odd science fantasy twists later on, like it being revealed than one of the girls was a major element of a hivemind, the guy was also art of the hivemind and just didn't realize it, and the other girl was an "enemy", but had opted to be friendly to the hivemind. She ends up dying later though.
It's odd and tought to completely explain, but that's how dream are, right?

I've seen anime fans before try and act like the "big eyes, small nose, small mouth" style isn't a thing and you're just a stupid american for thinking all anime looks the same. But not only is it 100% obviously a thing (even "realistic" anime characters generally have bigger eyes than you'd actually see in real life), it's also a GOOD THING. Big eyes are objectively more appealing than small ones.

Early 4chan was heavily influenced by porn, to the point where it probably wouldn't exist today if NSFW content wasn't allowed. But people like to downplay that aspect of the site's culture because it makes them uncomfortable. You can see the same thing happen with historical accounts of other websites (especially Newgrounds), so I wonder how much western prudishness has affected our perception of history as a whole.
349 Anonymous 2021-03-26T00:14:29
It's not so much that people are offended, but that porn has a nasty effect of shoving out other kinds of conversation in favor of more porn. Even in places like /b/, which was assumed to already be a cesspit, the amount of porn actually made it even worse, and brought in even dumber types of users.
A similar thing happened with /gif/, so much so that the board has to be split because it was unusable for anything but porn.
350 Anonymous 2021-03-26T17:28:37
What I'm saying is more that people understate its existing influence. Porn was a big part of golden age 4chan, but people always downplay that part of the site's history for some reason.

Sometimes, I think people squabble online not because of the importance of the subject, but because getting angry feels good. Like a large chunk of people online, at least the loud ones, are addicted to outrage and use "moral" subjects to get their fix.

A lot of modern realistic artists, particularly western ones, suck at controlling detail. When making art, the important bits should generally be the most defined. Simply implying the less important parts not only saves on a ton work, it also makes the picture easier to read, which is in theory the whole point of art; to communicate. Rendering every last detail on everything doesn't make your drawings look good, it just makes them needlessly cluttered and ugly.

"Consoomer" is one of a series of thought terminating insults that have only exist to stew hatred for people Anon has never met. A lot of people dislike these terms, but they get drowned out by the tidal wave of trolls that are in bigger sites. I don't think anyone wants to deal with that kind of stuff outside of 4chan.

At the time 4taba was practically dying, when the site was only accessible through an IP and not the normal domain, I changed my bookmark to the IP and at some point noticed it too didn't work anymore. I just assumed it was all over and now, over a year later, I look up 4taba again and you're alive. My random thoughts about this turn of events are positive.

Same here, anon.

If those kids saw newgrounds back in its heyday, they'd have called it cringe and left.

My use of free software is driven less by an ideological conviction about how one should know what code they're running, and more about how locked down software is annoying to use and is needlessly heavy on my hardware. I take FOSS licenses as short hand for "This program's code isn't absurdly heavy and doesn't waste my CPU cycles on phoning home".

That's actually what free software has always been about! Have you ever heard the phrase "free as in freedom, not free as in free beer"? The phrase pretty much means exactly that, that the software respects your freedom to do whatever you want with it, but it doesn't explicitly prohibit the creator from making money from it. That is why some people prefer to use the phrase "libre software" instead of "free software".

Is there a term for good visual memory and recognition? I can recall most places I've been at, even fictional places like levels in video games, so I never really get lost. I also collect a lot of art and can easily recognize duplicates that I've seen before. I wouldn't call this "photographic memory" as I can't really clearly visualize these images in my mind, but whenever I see them again, I instantly recognize them. I'd call it "symbolic memory" or something, but perhaps there's a proper term? It kind of applies to audio too, but for visuals it's more effective.

I sometimes like to think about a little story I will hopefully be able to properly write someday and one of the characters in it is able to freely materialize themselves anywhere at will. I've started to wonder about what would happen if something like that were to happen in the real world. Let's assume a person, maybe even something big like an anchor, would just suddenly appear out of thin air, how would that realistically affect the scene? Would there be a sound, realistically? Would people nearby experience some sort of shockwave from a mass like that just suddenly materializing in the blink of an eye, maybe even die? Maybe the sudden change in surroundings would screw with people's eardrums?
I'm not experienced with physics at all, but perhaps it's possible to come up with a theoretical answer that is likely to be accurate, according to what we know about the laws of physics so far.
