>you've been browsing 4chan for over 5 years
i...i thought it was a phase
Did you fall into a progressive downward spiral of strange pornography and fetishes?
Heh. I remember spending the entirety of my freshmen Economics course finalizing my transition from /b/ to the other boards. That was five years ago.
I can't remember the last time I was on /b/, but I CAN remember that the economics teacher actually thought that women made $0.73 for every dollar that men made. And she somehow didn't seem to think that if that were true, there'd never be a man hired ever.
This is it. This is that moment anon. This is the time when you think "Wow, I have really wasted my life. Maybe I should go back to school and get that degree. Maybe even get a girlfriend!"
Then you'll remember that all that costs money. Money you'd rather spend on things like ammo, and dragon dildos.
Then you'll remember that you're home.
There's no place like home /k/. There's no place like home.
>I have four fucking college degrees
>I have lots of money
>I run my own business and am generally successful
What am I doing here? I could be out doing all sorts of things! I could be-
>am still a kissless virgin at the age of 23
Okay, you have a point.
when i saw the op i thought "no i haven't" then i realized i have been here since 2008, damn it.
>I could be-
I've told myself this alot.
And then I come back here to figure out what I should do instead of come here all the time so I can talk about it here.
This is why there is no escape anon.
Been here since late 05.
Strange fetishes is how I found 4chan.
We all are.
Im completely convinced that if 4chan ever really dies there will be support groups for terminal channers.
Not him, but it's possible. I dated a stupid butch that spent 5 years fucking around at a private college, double major, like 2 credits away from triple. Someone with a few brain cells working their ass off could do 4 majors in 5 years, considering credits that count towards multiple degrees.
I've been here since 2007. I'm 22 now. I stay here on /k/ mostly. This place has changed me.
It was cheaper for me to go to college and stay on my parent's insurance than to buy my own, so I made the most of it.
I now have an associates in computer tech, a bachelor's in CS, an associates in Art, and an associates in business. This isn't even counting all of my certificates.
I started college when I was 14 doing post secondary work. My entire high school experience was spent with strong, independent black woman at my local community college.
While I never got a job with any of those degrees, each one contributes to me starting my own business. I wouldn't change a thing, and I've become so good at writing papers I could do it as a side business if I ever need money.
been here since '06
place has really changed since when i first lurked, OC and quality breads are long gone but 4chan really went to shit when all these may-mays started becoming so popular IRL and leddit 9fag armies sending newfags here to shit up the place
i just want 2004-2008 4chan again
You want a time when Cheese Pizza thread showed up nightly on /b/ and motivational threads were a thing?
Yeah... those were the days. I still have a folder with everything demotivational poster people used to post.
I always liked 4chan because it was a place that a poverty ridden schmuck with horrible parents like me could interact with people all over the world, completely unfiltered real conversations and thoughts. Reddit doesn't give you that option, because half the time you don't see the most popular opinions.
4chan opened up opportunities for me to get motivated to escape poverty. Gave me a place where I can browse anything on almost every topic. 4chan is my hove.
Sorry for sounding cheesy, but I love you guys.
Eh, the average quality has dropped and the manic creativity has really dropped down, but it still has the same thing that always brought me back, which is this bullshit.
I don't know anything about you, you don't know anything about me, and we're having a conversation in the middle of the night about meaningless bullshit without being worried about being banned or shunned or anything like that.
4chan is horrible in so many ways, and every story we tell is made up as shit, but at least the opinions are honest.
I am beyond porn and fetishes, 4chan made it so I could masterbate to a clock ticking.
Seems like a natural progression
My god the things I've jacked it to, knowingly or unknowingly. The useless threads, the marginal amount of new information I obtain by lurking. Enough to make an oldfag wax poetic
>I have… seen things you people wouldn't believe…
>Nugget bolts in places that would make grandpa Sergei roll in his grave
>I watched anon wear his gf's underwear while fully erect
>All those… moments… will be <del>lost in time</del> <ins>preserved indefinitely in the archive</ins>, like tears… in... rain.
they got old pretty quickly but i raged IRL when they started making t-shirts a few years ago
right in the feels
started coming to 4chan in 08 when i got back into anime after i marathon like 200 episodes of Naruto shippuden, because i was curious to what happened. then i started drifting over here more because my rifle ( uncles gun hidden at my parents house because he was a felon for selling converted ak's during the Assult weapons ban.) was a finnish mosin. then i bought another mosin cause it came with ammo, then my Mauser and then a m1 i cant stop this. no weird fetishes yet but i have become more raciest and less social. thanks /k/
What brought you guys to /k/ specifically the 1st time?
I think I came here to ask something about my $90 chinese SKS but I dont remember what.
Paranoia about being mugged, a love of knives and knife maintenance, and a desire to learn bushcraft. I just got bored of /b/ one day and started looking at the subjects of the other boards.
I've enjoyed the time I spent here. from the old shitty memes and demotivational posters. The stories I've read. The conversations I had about so many topics.
I came here not that long ago. Maybe 3 months before Sandy Hook. Before that I'd come here every now and then, but was mostly on /v/ and /m/ and for porn on /d/
All porn would be better if all chicks had dicks.
This pictures sums up 2004-2006 4chan. It's one I saved from a LONG time ago.
Technically I wasn't really a 4channer for the first year, I occasionally went on /a/ and, with my friends, /b/, which was funny because back then 4chan was about a year old and people were just starting to say that /b/ was starting to suck and get unoriginal. How little we knew then. I still feel like a newfag because I missed the beginning.
Anyways back then it took me 2 weeks of lurking all over the place to figure out that touhou was a game and install it on my computer, and for like 3 years I mostly went on this touhou site pooshimer. Then I got into desuchan because it was something new and full of retarded spamming, by the time that had settled down I was in college and I became a hardcore /a/ guy and watched 8 animes a week while also becoming a solid /k/ guy as well, two years ago I met my fiancee and I stopped having time to watch anime, so now I just go on /k/ every moment I'm not talking to her or actually working and /k/ has become the most significant part of my identity.
I had a question about some new rifle I wanted to get, but couldn't for the life of me tell you what it was.
Then I started looking at other threads.
And then I started commenting.
And now I'm commenting here.
And I don't know how long it's been...

>because back then 4chan was about a year old and people were just starting to say that /b/ was starting to suck and get unoriginal
Confirmed for being a newfag.
/b/ was never good.
Oh yeah I forgot, I was also on 7chan/zom for a long time which was a hive of shitty retards but I was obsessed with explaining to them how traditional katanas are made and that real kukris are the ones made in nepal and they both work better and are cheaper than cold steel.
came here in 06 and lurked /b/, /r9k/, /g/ and /v/ solely for a few years
guess i started /k/ in '09 or '10 because i bought babies first pistol but for the past 4 years /k/ is the only reason i come to 4chan. haven't been to /b/ in 3 years (i lurked during the fappening for dem pics tho)
>2007 was 7 years ago
Fuck me. Still a filthy newfag.
Dunno what I would be like if I hadn't found this amazing, godawful site.
Anyways, here's to many more years.
>tfw started lurking 4chan in 2006
>tfw have photographic evidence of the beginning of me posting on /k/
>tfw that revolver still sits in my desk
>tfw I am now far more appreciative of the existence of 4chan because of stupid shit like facebook than I was back in 2006
Dude, I just told you, I consider myself a newfag because I missed the first year. Of course I don't know that /b/ was never good. Though I have been told that a lot ever since the beginning.
I was joking with you. That joke has been with /b/ since the beginning and continues to this day when true newfags (not you) say /b/ used to be good.
Don't make me divide by zero.
>that moment when I realize I've been on here for 6 years
I have an entire folder of macros from that era.
Wish I had an easy way to share them all.
Coming on 7 years now. I used to hide it and not let it show but I just don't give a fuck anymore.
23 years old and never even hugged a girl. Maybe it's this place, maybe not. Well at least I have guns.
damn son how does it feel to be a /k/ vet?
Fuck as much as I hate them now, I really can't fault them for their consistent delivery of punchlines. Also, at the time, they were at least somewhat unique. At this ponit in time, they're peerless.
It's ok man. Just live for yourself, when you can figure that out you'll get bored of it and figure out how to find a woman next.
Or at least that's what happened to me, I just started going on okcupid and answering every question "wait until after marriage" until I found someone who was just as awkward and inexperienced as me my own age, now we are engaged and living together in my condo.
They were. Nobody uses them anymore. Now, they're kind of... retro is that's possible.
Which was caused by the internet hate machine.
Not that great, I spend a great deal of money on whiskey to help me forget.
we demotivational thread now?
been on this shit pile since 05. ive gone thru board phases. I went thru a /b/ phase, then a /v/ phase, than a /tg/ phase and had a shit ton of models. Im about to sell them to pay for an AK. I frequented /k/ throughout all those years and phases. I love you miserable shitcunts
'Tis a sad thing for certain.
Sure, let's try to keep it /k/ related.
>I have spent shittons too much time on 4chan
I REGRET NOTHING
anyone remember those...what was it..EFG threads?
The guy with the guy fawks mask doing weird shit.
Searching my mental hard disk on for old memes from back in the ages when /b/ didn't even move that fast.
You'll always be among friends here, anon.
>They were. Nobody uses them anymore. Now, they're kind of... retro is that's possible.
I think there's an overt elegrance to them. They're obviously stating their punchlines and all, but I think they're a great representation of that era of 4chan.
Also, I fucking miss the card crusher memes from ~2008.
That is one of the gems.
>fuck the harpoons
Shit, I feel so old.
I have... no idea. I began on /b/, but I only vaguely remember moving to /k/. I think I was asking about some form of weaponry, and they directed me to some strange board is never heard of full of /k/ommandos. That's how I found /k/, I think. Or I randomly found it while browsing the boards
There is actually one girl I've sorta kinda been seeing and been on four 'dates' with her altgough didn't call them dates. Took her to the movies couple of weeks ago. We're both awkward and she is in tge same situation as I am.
Though I'm not sure if she actually likes me so I'm nervous to take this any further.
>Epic Fail Guy threads
Meh, they were good. Appropriate amounts of lulz were had.
>tfw most people started on /b/
Does anybody have a certain image? I think the caption is "Band of /b/-tards". It has cock mongler, pedobear, watermelon nigger, and some other popular folk of back then photoshopped onto some image of soldiers.
I can't find it anywhere.
Lemme look through my old /b/ folder(s). They're quite expansive and poorly organized (all images are dumped in one folder).
I think i know what you're talking about.
You would have fit in better back then.
Shit I used to have that.
The head on my 1tb media drive fucking ate it earlier this year though.
Out of the literally 1000000000+ pics lost I am the most sad about my cracky pics.
It's a big folder, and I'm going to have to post a reference image every now and then so i can come back to the thread to re-read the description, since I'm fairly drunk now.
But I swear to JMB I know what you're talking about.
Thanks you kind anon.
I think it was based on this image or an image like it. I remember cropping Richard C. Mongler's face and using it as cover art for an album on my brother's MP3 player as a joke.
/k/ was the first non-porn board I visited (/b/ doesn't count,) out of curiosity.
I grew to better understand guns, love them, and it's literally because of /k/ I'm where I am today.
Browsin since 09.
>an hero is from 2006
>i was here before that was a thing
>i remember when it became a thing
I love /k/ though. became a hasguns last year after all that lurking
I found a small version of it! It has the wrong text, but it's the same image.
Shit, now I need to find the full size.
Fuck, getting distracted, I love these comics. Almost as much as the Eggman comics.
I first found 4chan 9 years ago, and over the course of about a week I browsed /b/ until I saw goatse or something else and left. Then, two years later I came back to 4chan after discovering /tg/ and /mu/, and then realizing there was a weapons board. I've actively browsing/using 4chan for 7 years, and 6 of those I have considered /k/ my main board.
Of the course of seven years and three different computers I've been here. It's frightening realizing that. I didn't even notice until a few months ago that it's been seven years. Seven years of my life I will never get back because I've spent it here.
I love every single one of you.
Fuck, nostalgia induced meme overload.
Forgot my girlfriend senior year tried to organize my /b/ folder by renaming some images.
This isn't helping.
coolstorybro.jpg: she was i the Habbo raid of '07.
>How long have I been here?
>I've been here since....
>It can't be. That's....
>Oh god it's true. Eight fucking years.
Cheers, boys. Here's to being trapped forever. All glory to the frames.
>FOUR MORE YEARS on the front page
I haven't even thought of that until you mentioned it. Four more years...
>Started browsing /s/ in 2007
>Always loved firearms
>Went to /k/ in 09
>Stayed till computer died in 2010
>Got new comp in 2011
>Go back to /k/ in 2012
Its my home and you are all my family
And I love you all
and That Guy
and Hunter 2-1 Fagtual
this makes me wonder what will become of us if/when this place goes away for good.
Bitch, I CAME here because of that. 4chan really only enabled me, and besides checking out the peanut gallery here, my main stops are basically /co/, and checking up to see if there is anything worth a damn in the /nsfw/ stuff
Dont even suggest that will happen...
This one's /k/ related.
There's only three people on 4chan: you, me and Zed. Show some respect.
I know that feel. I used to be an A-grade student, and look at me now. No job, no GF, shitty apartment in a shitty commieblock and two cats as my only friends, jacking off to things normal people don't even know exist. I could have been fucking anything i wanted. I could have been anything.
Feel obliged to remind /k/ of the time 4chan made the news because of litebrite bombs.
Don't even get me started on that shit. Thinking about my outside the internet saddens me. I work a shitty job making under 300 a week. I never see my friends anymore. Turns out I'm gay and I can't come out. I still live at home and I can't get a job I want no matter how hard I look as everyone I know is working a job they like, are dating and don't drink themselves to sleep every night.
A shot to you 4chan, my home since 2007.
Lets see...when I started 4chan I was on my way to becoming a well payed nurse I had more friends than I could count on 1 hand(a LOT for someone with aspd) I had a decent car and girlfriend i hadnt consumed my body weight several times over in pills and booze and most of my family respected me.
Now...I take care of old people for nearly minimum wage with no degree or liscense
Have less than 5 friends
Have a shit car
Have a girlfriend who was literally a prostitute
I have taken SO many pills and drank SO much liqour
Most of my family hates me
I live with and mooch off of my brother
Im like half crippled and extremely paranoid.
You can checkout anytime you like, but you can never leave
Bro, I have lived many lives.
I know that feel.
The smell of corpse fires in the snow.
Enough blood to row a boat in.
Panicked pot shots in the night.
MOUNTAINS OF FLAME.
DRIFTS OF FALLOUT
OH GOD THE EYES THE EYES!
Tons of fun I tell ye.
Getting too drunk to continue the search. Have laughed way too hard in the process.
Now man up.
I can only confirm my presence from six years ago, but that's because I lost my laptop. I figure it was about two years before that when I started.
I started in /a/. Got heavy into /v/ for a while, but it always moved too fast. Settled into a 30/60 /ak/ lifestyle in the last year or so.
See now I have no actual memory of ever reading it but then shit like that pops up from it.
Something similar has been happening with The Silmarillion lately I thought I never read it but I keep remembering things from it before I read them its annoying how you can just lose things in your head like that.
Been here since I was ~21...I'm almost 30, now. Still only like and fap to women. I used to make the "faces of /k/" posters years ago for everyone. I think the last I did was 2010...haven't been on much since '12.
That's just you touching the Akashic records. Its too bad you can't do something useful with it like remember an unfiled patent and make a ton of money.
>still only like and fap to women
Really? You're on 4chan and you only like women? What a fag.
Well....I guess I should get back to hacking up AK mags now and quit shitposting on /k/.
Here have something awesome because youre awesome.
