general chat thread. have never done one of these. post your pic if you want. what are you:
Posts on /soc/
How was your day, anons?
Sitting out back waiting for my room mate to get home so we can go on a night hike. His wife is grilling burgers up, it's a 75° night in Southern California and I love it
What's up man?
day was alright, took a pretty bad turn lately but still feeling p good. gotta wake up at 4:30 am tomorrow morning because i have to be super early for work. disney opens early on thursdays
this sounds like something i wish i was doing. my skinny ass could really use a burger right now as well. not much is up atm, i used to live in NorCal though and those were some of my favorite years
what's going on, smirking guy
why you leaving?
nietzsche's beyond good and evil
You know nothing beats a fresh home grilled burger, make some up for yourself sometime. Where'd you move to? I haven't spent much time in Northern California, just a road trip last year along all the typical stops. Big Sur, Santa Cruz, Frisco, the redwoods. Wish I could've stayed longer though, it's a different beauty than what we have in the south
i dunno, it's gonna sound dumb but i posted on soc cuz i was a pretty sad individual. it was a good outlet but i've been posting way too much. all things in moderation yknow
i always like your music taste
the bad turn was learning i had to wake up so early, and a few other personal things. i dont know who would come into disney that early, but i hope they enjoy how cold it will be that morning. i know i will
i'll make sure to. i lived in santa cruz, i thought it was beautiful. honestly i hadn't seen a part of california i didn't enjoy. maybe it was the redwoods or the festivals on the wharfs but it was all good. how do you like socal? i'm currently in central florida, on the whole other side lol
How bored I am and how to unfuck my shit
Chili and water
I love Empire! Empire! I try to play and sing along to them but that fucking guy has such a high voice.
I feel like this song is something I'd get raped to
>OP doesn't fill out his own questions
here's a completely neutral face. my webcam is all i have access to at the moment but it should do.
Malcolm in the Middle
Why the fuck did i post so much
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5Za8HggalY i suppose since i'm watching malcolm in the middle
I liked Santa Cruz a lot. Wish I could have spent more time there, got to see the boardwalk and all but overall I could see why you would've enjoyed being there. It's killer down here. Pretty central to the deserts, mountains, and beaches so there's plenty to enjoy. My grandfather lived in Florida and he'd always wear a golden mankini and try to pick up on really young women when I was visiting him. When I hear Florida I think of that
i suppose so, it's more that i realized how posting here as often as i do was starting to get in the way of other things in my daily life. glad that the other regulars can be appreciated though. lol i can't imagine soc any slower so they are really helping out with making the board interesting
yeah that's why that song is my favourite
30 seconds at the end are within my vocal range
didn't even have a kik until now desu but add socruinedmylife
will hopefully keep in contact if i don't autism out and assume you want to be left alone
yeah, i hope someday i can visit california again. the farthest south i went while i was there was san diego. that's a pretty accurate image of florida to have in your head. even though i'm tough on it sometimes, i do enjoy florida quite a bit, especially the keys
i watched minions today bc idk
reading um. kamasutra bc class
thinking about why my brain chemistry hates me
listening to my neighbor play music
but last night i was listening to early 2000s music all night. was glorious
ugh i want coke
unfucking shit is hard <3
youd love one of my nyu friends so hard
my hairs a mess bc i woke up 30 minutes ago. yay me
loving the username. i'll add you, trust me i'm always down for talking so don't worry about leaving me alone lol
it'll be fine, my threads weren't getting much traffic anyway. i might pop back in and post something in the future but really i just need a break desu
This picture of ya looks more natural than the others for some reason.
Uhhh, not watching anything.
Reading this thread sorta.
Listening to a Discord call. It's associated with this board. OooOoOoo mysteryyyy
I just ate a peanut butter sandwich, and it was fucking godlike. I was really hungry. Gonna make burgers soon.
Thinking...hm. I feel good, after leaving my recent class. I like how the small class size gives it an intimate and friendly feeling. I feel like people there have a sense for my personality, and the respect they have is pretty obvious. My performance in that class reaaally appeals to my intellectual vanity. I guess...I've got a letter that I'm planning to write on my mind, but just the fact that I'm actually planning on actually writing it makes me feel strangely relaxed.
it's dead only until the next summer break. usually 'summer' has a negative connotation around here but i mean if it adds traffic...
yeah, right around winter break was probably the prime
I need to learn more words
Kind of bummed to hear you're leaving man. I've only been here for a short while but you seemed like a pretty cool dude who post good threads. I wish you well though f am
My day was pretty lazy. I tried to watch the cooking station on tv to learn how to cook a little but they go way too fast for my below amateur self. How was your day?
so what is it about writing the letter that relaxes you? what's the letter about if you don't mind my asking?
thanks man, i'm glad you enjoyed my threads. how's it going?
i still don't know what (most of) you guys actually do in your lives
if you study, what do you study?
if you work, where do you work?
do you have actual lives outside of /soc/?
did any of you actually come to /soc/ with intention of joining a community? (if you can call it that)
i'm studying business management, and as most here know i work at walt disney world. specifically i work the spaceship earth ride and the fastpass kiosks. i'm like an alien here in florida though, ever since i moved from my hometown where my irl friends are. so i dont have much of a social life outside of here. i came to soc because my self esteem was fucked after i got dumped.
how about you? what brought you here? what do you study?
Sort of...setting the record straight with someone I really cared about. Things didn't end well, and what we had deserved better, so...planning on doing that. It's been eating at me, so it feels good to have a plan.
I study clinical psych.
Don't work. Wish I did.
Actual life? Not much of one, but I'm not a NEET.
I think I was looking for a community, yeah. It's a surprisingly small board
>if you study, what do you study?
>if you work, where do you work?
>do you have actual lives outside of /soc/?
Yes and no. Recently the majority of my social life has kind of been ruined by my insomnia. I just feel too worn out to actually do anything fun socially. I still go out frequently on the weekends still, tho. I do not enjoy how my life has been as of late.
>did any of you actually come to /soc/ with intention of joining a community? (if you can call it that)
Eh, I actually just kind of stumbled across this place after hearing about it on /mu/. I started by only posting in music-related threads back in like, early - mid October? Started chatting with Punkanon and Lorde in those I think. Just kept coming back and talking to more new people. I just like it here, besides the whiney people and the fucking horrendous trolls.
i once wrote a text with a purpose very similar to your letter. i was disappointed, and i hope yours has a better outcome than mine.
i'm sorry, i totally missed you. how's it going? which early 2000s music was it?
how do you think you're going to fare without /soc/ to supplement your absence of real-world social life?
i suppose you would be more inspired to find people if you don't have this place as a crutch
i forgot why i first came here
think i wanted to seek validation whilst my ex was on holiday
i'm studying economics for the next three years
this place is all i have in terms of a social life, but i'd do fine without it
i came here from /pol/ so the idea that there was decent community on this entire site was beyond me
the size is fine with me, really
if it was too much larger i'd not be able to read between posts
>I do not enjoy how my life has been as of late.
shit sucks, mine's the opposite (even though i lost everyone i talked to apart from those from this board)
i don't know why i'm happier, probably because i keep telling myself i am
punkanon should post more
i thought you started far earlier than me (2nd december iirc)
on that note, when did you guys first start frequenting this place?
Better Call Saul is the series to which I'm currently committed. Not watching right this second, obviously.
The Truth by Neil Strauss
If I should bring up bipolar II to my psychiatrist next week though I'm only medicated for supposed clinical depression. Hypomania's not so bad, but mixed episodes scare the shit out of me.
Also been horny af for the past two days no matter what I do. Probably hypomanic.
Electronic hum and the depression of computer keys.
no problem and it's going alright. Having some trouble falling asleep lately and it's kind of catching up to me. Do you like working at Disney World?
It looked like this pic
Tell me about it, sistuh
And I actually enjoyed Minions. I watched it when I was chillin' with my little neighbor. I like their voices.
Bitch, you better have put jelly on that shit. Sacrilege
s m h f a m
I dig this link, yo
>I need to learn more words
Don't we all?
Some Michael Jackson video
Nothing at the moment
Michael Jackson, lol.
I just got off of work and I need to go to bed so I can go to work.
economics is a good thing to study. well i think having a real world social life was one of the things that posting here got in the way of. could be wishful thinking though, but i feel like if i replaced all the time i spend posting myself on here with a real world interaction i'd be set. like i'll be on soc when i'm in the breakroom at work sometimes, and that could just be an easy way out of talking to people.
>qt dutch girl in the international college program talks to me in breakroom
>phone was dead so i had to converse like an adult
>got some digits
it's like the second i'm not on soc my life gets slightly better
never say never anon. keep hopes high but expectations realistic. it's good that even the writing relaxes you though
im in school for english + i started a new internship
i sort of have a life. i dont know, i came to soc first to see what people thought of me, and i know people here wouldnt be wishy washy. eventually yes. but <3 i know guys dont approach me not because im not a freak, but because i have resting bitch face. do you have a life?
<3 its cooool! lol i dont know, mostly shit from 2005 when i was in 8th grade. like anything that was popular back then. its going meh. it could be better. it usually is, so its really weird for me right now, but ill be alright soon <3
yeah i needed something stupid to watch today. id get into details about why this week is hard, usually, but someone found me last night in a thread who knows me, possibly irl, so im not gonna do that anymore haha
the mix of anonymity and identity that people have on this board allows for some unrestrained personalities, and i think that's pretty great
the opposite actually happened to me
>decide to stop going outside, frequent /soc/
>qt dutch girl talks to me in rate thread
>get some gf
it's like the second i withdraw from real life my life gets slightly better
but i'm probably an anomaly
resting bitch face male reporting in
>do you have a life?
not by most people's standards, no
i don't really care about that, though
far happier with no life desu
>if you study, what do you study?
no studying for me
>if you work, where do you work?
with a delivery service that delivers to refineries in Texas and Louisiana
do you have actual lives outside of /soc/?
I use to til I got this new job. I have to stay on call throughout the week in case they need a delivery so can't venture too far from work. I've kind of fallen out of touch with the friends I've made these past couple of year. I really miss the friends I made at my last job as a host at a Japanese steak house. It was really layed back and coworkers were pretty cool too.
>I really miss the friends I made at my last job as a host at a Japanese steak house
what happened to that job?
i'm going to make an attempt at sleep
will read the rest of this thread later
Quit for the job I have currently after working there for almost 4 years. Would never want a job in food service again but I'm glad I worked there. It was fun and I learned how to be a little more patient and empathetic. Made me feel like I fit in for once too.
Bumpity, will miss you smirkanon

I work as a government research survey interviewer, i.e. I call people and ask them how much their Christmas tree cost.
>all things in moderation
Yeah I'm probably going to be posting on here less and less because of my schedule, /soc/ will truly die without your contribution though.
What do you do man?
>Work in 10 hours
͡º ͜ʖ ͡º
>, /soc/ will truly die without your contribution though.
thanks jp! i really hope that's not the case though, when i first started posting around october of 2015 it was pretty populated and it would be cool if it went back that way soon. anyway i work at epcot in walt disney world, specifically on the ride spaceship earth
lel thought you were teaching in 10 hours
Yo what, how is that, I used to post in just rate threads every one and a while over the years, only became dedicated to this board when I broke my leg a couple months ago, now these chat threads have been pretty chill so I try to contribute.
Can i ask a dumb question?
So avatars aren't allowed?
i dunno, maybe it wasn't at its peak in october but it was certainly more populated. i posted in a rate thread, a qt rated me high, then i got kinda involved
avatar away my friend
how's your week been so far?
My life is the same as it's always been. Kind of a repeat.
Going around, looking for femdom/sadist smart/kind girls, and the kindest most open minded weird people to add on my skype. And i'm trying to get my life straight, but i'm too rebellious to fit in.
How has your week been so far?

currently getting past benzo addiction as well as smoking coke so i kind of tend to stay up all night doing various things because i dont really get natuarlly tired anymore.
kill bill vol 2 kind of while playing guitar
water because it stops the shakes for some reason for a little just sipping on something
American Spirit Blacks because they also help stop the shakes but im at like 2 packs a day now need to work on slowing down
just looking for a friend or a chat to keep me company and keep my mind occupied
Anyone can add my skype below:
i'm this guy
wanna skype me?
i'm actually highly mentally ill
Addictions are tough. Got into the trouble 6 years ago but its all stopped now. All the power to you.
I used to smoke AS blacks too. I found better luck curving by switching to camel silvers if you want to try something.
too true especially when youve lived your whole life plagued with social anxiety and never once have had a girlfriend or boyfriend. klonopin and xanax just kinda killed all my anxiety and made me okay with being alone, smoking coke just made me feel amazing lol. in the end its all bad and this week has literally been my longest time clean out of choice with money in my hand so somethings going right
Social anx, and significant others aside though its all about working on yourself. Im epileptic and heavily relied on/abused prescription drugs at a point and got addicted to other drugs real fast. For real though if you have money and can stay clean thats a big step.
mhm taking full responsibility for everything ive done to my body is something im finally coming to terms with but finding the motivation to actually make an attempt each day is really hard. Tbh coming off drugs is probably the hardest thing ive had to do yet body has never hurt more and shook for no reason. and the 3 hours of sleep a night doesnt help but its good to hear from someone who has actually dealt with addiction instead of everyone around me just telling me i need to just be happy again now since im done doing drugs..if only it was that easy
Correct sir. You know what youve done and you understand the consequences of it. You probably already know how easy it would be to go back to it all as well, but you also understand one day, one week, and eventually weeks and months away from it all is the best thing you can do. I could be wrong but im sure, like me, no one around you has openly dealt with your personal problems and addiction problems at the same time. They want you to be happy but dont fully understand. Remember though if they want you and tell you to be happy, they most likely mean it and it does hurt them to see you at your worst.
as in crack? what kind of mental illness, u a trap bro?
I feel like a hypocrite for saying this but the best way to quit is to just stop smoking
Ty sir kind sir.
here's an extremely low budget version of that swedish chad guys photo, it looks like I haven't slept in a month though ffs how does that guy do it

how go your studies, anon
do you enjoy your course, or is it just a burden you've got to deal with to get a salary later on?
>no fucking desire for anything
eh, i have this too
i'm entirely indifferent between doing nothing and studying and reading, though, so even though i have no desire to do anything most of the time i can still manage to be 'productive'

welcome home anons
how have you been
Hello meme loving fucks
been pretty alright, finally tried one of those skype threads, and it was kinda fruitful.
Since I was generally looking for strange people to talk to.
Idk, numerous factors, probably another cycle of posters.
Not enough interesting content. The people who generally post here are pretty Norman, so it's not a constant stream of activity.
No, but it'd be worth a shot. If the walls were weak the sound might become distorted by the vibrations affecting the shape...maybe.
You could try to get it too play through water?

Lel, 60-70% of this board is contact threads (skype,Kik,telegram)
Leaving the rest of the board to rate threads and assumptions.
So if you don't post in contact threads, (which make up the majority of the board) it's going to appear slow.

pic related was a real fun fight, though
The DLC was actually really fun, even thought the game was widely criticized I thought it was pretty great. DLC was fantastic though, would highly recommend.
Never got to the Dark Lurker because fuck that PvP covenant, especially when I gave up the sword and board.

Plz dont leave us man, youre one of my favorite regulars ;_;
Still in school :/
Yes I do, I just come here because I have this whole english/american culture and internet humor side of me that none of my chad friends appreciate and Y´all are great guys to share it with <3
I forgot why I came her actually, most anticlimatic response possible, but true.
How about you man?
Coke Coke or coca cola coke?
Hey man, you seem like a cool guy who understands where is addiction is coming from. The thing is: You wont be happy just because youre not addicted, but because you wont have a (highly toxic and addicting) patch for your social problem anymore youre more likely to go out and socialize or otherwise find motivation to make you happy.
You look pretty good and I dig your style, so you just need enough motivation to throw yourself out there which is incredibly hard and I wont even try to understand how hard it is for you, but I believe that you will be able to manage it <3
How are ya?
what the fuck, didnt even know that it existed in your realm! Also cool tattoo.
Being ignored by my only group of friends at uni, being a depressed bitch about it and at the same time I am self aware of it and criticising myself over it which creates an endless cycle. Hating that I can't be open about shit because it alienates people but so does bottling everything up. So overall this has been a pretty shite day.
>Being ignored by my only group of friends at uni, being a depressed bitch about it and at the same time I am self aware of it and criticising myself over it which creates an endless cycle

I just want my meme-appreciation is that too much to ask.

Way I was raised, you weren't supposed to try to pronounce it. If by somehow you managed to, G-d would strike you down. At least that's what ,you parents told me to keep me from saying it. The unpronouncable name.
Ohohoho, I'm real scared now, I'm trembling in my panties.
If this were true I"d be dead already, wait I am.
If it was unpronounceable then how do people know how to say it? It"s not even his name it just like a translation to "the Lord" or some thing like that, like Jehovah.
I'm doing alright, which side were you on with the consumer debate?
Did you get onto discussing socialization, propaganda and manipulation, they're kinda fun to debate.
Well, it was strung along the pretty popular vegetarian argument in germany that cow waste 3000l of water just to become meat for us and thats way too expensive so its our job to not eat meat.
The logic from the perspective of the vegetarian is that the corporation wants to make profit and therefore if nobody buys their products they have to produce different shit, or just die which makes more place for vegetarian products.
The problem with that logic is that first off good humanitary treatment or waste of water is something that any corporation cant and wont care about. They do only care about profit (which the vegetarian seems to fail to realize in this instance). Tofu for example is a really plaque in asia and the oranges in cali are draining the water right now aswell, making the drought even worse. If there was no meat to produce, other vegetarian things would be equally worse in the usage and handeling of things because its just not in their interests.
That is one argument.
The second argument is that its pretty pretentious to pretend that everybody can stop eating certain things. The biggest part of any community is in the lower classes where income and free time is very limited, so even if youre able to consume veg stuff for low money you prolly need to do your research to do so or just invest power into changing your traditions, things the lower class have no money or time for. So really they as privilidged middle class/upper class people want everyone to comsume different (which how I just proofed makes no sense) but really theyre just annoying people, pointing fingers and are being arrogant.
Was a fun debate!
I know what I'm talking about. Unpronouncable because you're not supposed to say it. Or try to. G-d is supposed to have a massive name in its entirety though. That's digging deeper though.
I think I found where you got the 3000l water thing from.
But yeah, it does seem daft to believe corporations will shrink their profit margins just to be more...eco-friendly?
i don't really see any reason why a gradual cultural change to vegetarianism wouldn't be for the whole benefit of everyone
rash change and legislation would only cause problem, though
People may be unable to afford the supplements necessary to maintain a healthy and active life style without meat.
If there was a cultural shift those that couldn't afford the supplements, or enough egg's/not meaty sources of protein, will be stigmatized.
You can find that stat about anywhere I believe, its apparently true. But even if it is, doesnt matter since the argument connected to it is
Corporations wont shrink their profit for anything because profit is the only reason for their existing. Its not even a matter of choice. Every corporation has to get on the level of the contenders, which means cutting on cost. Growth is neccessary to survive.
Where do you see the benefits exactly? Just curious.
To both of you: Ill prolly go to bed in a moment so I wont answer until tommorrow morning :)
I wouldnt even go that route. Even if its more healthy, which it might be, is that really the goal of a civilisation? "Yay im a bit more healthy but half of the earths population is still starving for the production of my food"
eggs are (i've been led to believe) less of an issue than meat, though i suppose if we do away with chicken meat we'd have to rid ourselves of eggs (assuming that egg-laying hens make up a significant part of the chicken meat industry)
are supplements truly more expensive than meat?
i'm pretty sure people already eat copious amounts of meat and over-reach their body's requisites of nutrients
out of curiosity, what nutrients are hard to come by without eating meat?
i'm probably not in favour of an entire elimination of meat from our diets, but cut down to what is necessary would help us all
too many resources being used to generate meat, really
meat farms are mostly an unnecessary stage in the production of food, and if we stopped eating as much meat then the resources used to produce it could be better allocated in our economy
>Its not even a matter of choice.
It can argued that the promotion of vegetarian products would increase their profitability by expanding their target market, allowing them to sell both meat and vegetarian goods whilst under a false pretense of being "for the good of the planet" (If that makes sense)
It's odd, but I don't think many people actually take into considering where most of their goods come from or how fortunate they're.
It'd be pointless to move away from meat, making it abnormal eat would just be odd and it'd kind of a collective Fuck you to countries so poor that their residence HAVE to eat meat to survive.
Sleep tight, anon. Don't let the monster in your closet get inside your head. :*
>It'd be pointless to move away from meat, making it abnormal eat would just be odd and it'd kind of a collective Fuck you to countries so poor that their residence HAVE to eat meat to survive.
arguing for minimal meat consumption, by the way, not zero
Well, I just argued here --> >>23314350
that production for rice, soy and potatoes for example, which are sold as healthy etc, not feed to animals, are already destroying entire eco systems and human lifes. We have a huge meat industry so we see all the bad sides of it. If we had a huge vegetarian industry (and we´re getting to that right now) you would see similar problems. I would say arguing over which of the two is a bit more or less worse then the other is petty. I hope that we can agree on one thing: Both are far from acceptable morally and humanly.
Already happening. The biggest veg and vegan corporations also sell meat in germany at least.They dont give a single shit, no company does. They just want profit.
Like I said, I wouldnt argue about the switch from meat to veggies on the standpoint if its possible for poor countries to survive without... I mean the thought alone is absurd isnt it?
"NO its important that they starve on POTATOES not on MEAT!" theyre suffering either way.
Thanks bases anon <3 I might hang around for 2 more min but then im goin.
Please dont argue about that guys because
>what I said above
I mean, you can argue about whatever you want if you have fun with it, but I dont think its productive :)
Not entirely sure, I'd have to check it out but if I recall correctly you can't get certain amino acids from anywhere other than meat sources, you cannot get a high amount of fat from vegetarian food (that I'm aware of) and there's a vitamin in fish oil that I believe isn't present vegetables/fruits.
Supplements can/are quite expensive.
There's a health shop near me that sells a small tub of vitamin pills for £7.
A small tub would only contain about 60.
Eggs would eventually be considered an ethical dilemma as the method used in obtaining them is harmful for the hens.
It's not interesting and nothing really happened but whatevs. Ok so I was at lunch, 10th grade (?), and I was sitting with my friends. To get lunch you had to get up and get on line, and since we sat right in front where it started, we usually got it first, or last but the point is we (inb4 pervert am not I had to blend in i sware in me mum) would start checking out the girls. So then this "girl" was on line and now that I think of it that bastard knew, amd my friend was like " she qt go on the line and ask her out" and I was like "but I already got lunch...". "So faggot just go, look at dat ass" it was a nice ass tbqh, so they forced me to go right behind her. Luckily for me HE turned around just in time and I noped right the fuck out. In my defence he did have a nice butt and nice hair.
Ah okay, I'm just saying though in an extreme case it'd have a negative impact on poorer countries. You can't really use a graph like that because some of the population wouldn't be recorded due to their exclusivity, but it's a good overview. I think people in places like green land would appear to eat more meat if there population was higher.
>Both are far from acceptable morally and humanly.
everything is a trade-off
the trade-off for mass-production of vegetables is less gruesome than the trade-off for mass-production of meat
regardless of soy/potato/rice, animals are fed far more than they produce, animals take up land, animals are mostly an unnecessary stage in getting food from ground to mouth
i don't have any statistics, but i believe the amount of energy consumed by an animal that is converted into edible meat is astonishingly low
>I wouldnt argue about the switch from meat to veggies on the standpoint if its possible for poor countries to survive without...
i was just rebutting another point
3rd world countries don't have to cut down on their meat consumption (nobody does, though first world countries ought to)
>"NO its important that they starve on POTATOES not on MEAT!"
a reduction in demand for meat from first countries would reduce the world price for (mostly preserved) meats regardless, and this would mean that third would inhabitants would be able to afford more meat
>everything is trade off
Only true in our economy. If you like our global capitalistic economy I cant argue about this topic with you because the whole discussion is assuming that all contributors are humanitarian
> edible meat energy waste
True. A cow only uses 10% of its given energy supply to grow, a potatoe uses way more.
Not arguing with that, but didnt you listen? I just argued that soy/potato/rice DO waste an extreme amount of land right now, mainly soy. Also to believe that the space if it would be freed of cows would be unused is something I wouldnt agree with. Space is rare on our planet and companies want to capitalize on as much space as possible, so if there is no cow over there, there sure will be a new factory there soon (or anything else). Really if it does change anything it doesnt change much and not much isnt something we should fight for.
that was an answer to based anon, not you :)
>more meat for dem poor folks
If the price for meat drops the wage of the workers will too. Its not like its some force of nature making them stave right now, they just barely get paid enough to survive. So if the price for survival gets lower, so will the payment go.
> less gruesome
If you want to talk gruesome see how halal is made.
Having known someone that works in a slaughter house our method of killing really isn't that bad you just poke their a brains a bit.
Have you ever considered that plants can feel pain too, they just can't scream when you boil them?
>afford more meat
The price of meat would increase due to it becoming a scarce commodity. If the big 1st countries aren't buying no one will be producing it in high supply.
Low supply means high price for those who still want to savor the greasy goodness of bacon.
I can't see a difference either, oh well. I still wouldn't base my argument off a single graph made by someone I don't know.
Well ok first off I said Yahweh to her to piss her off. Third all those names are what people decided to give him, but it all refers to the same deity/entity whatever you want to call. I think there's worse things that religious people aren't supposed to do but still do, and this is pretty tame compared to that.
Shiiit I just looked on the clock, I wanted to go to bed an hour ago. Fuck y´all with your interesting and engaging shitposts and discussions, youre worse then succubi!
For real though, sleep tite everyone.
>plants have dem feelz
Well thats more of a philosphic topic, not really based on the real world because there is no real proof to that. That argument is a trap because you cant really argue against it, sorry based anon but I dont think thats a good level of discussion personally <3 sleep well, argue kindly! :)
>everything is trade off
Only true in our economy.
true in every economy
regardless of economic system, ideology or any other possible factor, resources have alternate uses and can be allocated to generate various amounts of utility
>I just argued that soy/potato/rice DO waste an extreme amount of land right now, mainly soy
waste? what waste? they have use, that being the survival of humanity
if all of this land was instead used for the cultivation of meat, the food production capabilities of the planet would fall drastically.
>If the price for meat drops the wage of the workers will too.
this will only be significant for workers working in the meat industry. there aren't too many of these in third world countries. many of them would have already likely shifted their produce towards vegetable cultivation due to the increase in demand for these products from the first world
gruesome for humanity, not for the animals
the ethics of vegetarianism (or, in this case, a drastic cut in meat consumption) can be discussed at another time; the economic benefits are more than enough
>If the big 1st countries aren't buying no one will be producing it in high supply.
i'll explain this in the next post (100 letter limit)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_meat_consumption here's a wiki article, there's loads more, though
Oh I know, I just saw it on a facebook post and thought: "why not spread the cancer? I mean the deep moral questions....
Sleep's for the weak, don't you know.
Anyway, have pleasant dreams, germananon.
Here's some music for ya.
>If the big 1st countries aren't buying no one will be producing it in high supply.
supply would only fall at an amount roughly equal to the fall in demand from first world countries
the price would fall, though. the reduction in demand and the subsequent fall in price would only put out of use the modes of meat production that are most expensive
for example, if price falls to £9 from £10, then a supplier that can produce meat at £9.50 would go out of business, sure
but the suppliers that can supply meat at £8.50, £8, etc. would still be making profit and would not leave
also worth taking into consideration is that some of the resources used in the production of meat are rather unique in use, that is, if meat production declines and factories/cattle-only fields/cattle-only food are less in demand as a result, the price of these items will also fall, which would lower the costs of production for those who remain in the industry (and further lower the price of meat)
Yes, I can, it's with the same principles as seeing a dick, if you don't boner, congratz you're not gay or attracted.
Yes I have made another gril mad, I feel so alive.

verbose vitamin-eating koreanon reporting
Just started an anime called Kids On The Slope and it's fucking awesome because this past year I've been rediscovering jazz and the show is making me love jazz more. Imo the animation is beautiful except for their damn faces. Come on. Those eyes are even too big for white people. The opening and ending themes are really underwhelming imo. I'm hooked though. I can't get enough of the scenes where they play music and I love the references to old school jazz, like the name of the tall dude's pet pigeon, and the mention of Elvin Jones and Tommy Flanagan. It blows Cowboy Bebop the fuck out in that respect. I highly recommend to any jazzchanners (since my irl jazzfriends think anime is just for weebs).
JP-san GET ON THIS SHIT
the whole thing is up for free
Also been watching Erased, but I haven't seen ep 6 yet. DON'T SPOIL PLS. I already saw some spoilers in /a/ :(
<.< fuck my shit up /lit/ I just read for school nowadays. reading some shit about a nun surgeon from india who lives near eritrea but I've been shirking since I haven't had that class for 3 weeks now due to 3-6 inches of snow.
had a therapy session today, went pretty alright, but since I'm on state insurance, it's been a struggle to find a psychiatrist who takes that. My therapist is convincing me to start antidepressants for at least a little while because of my lack of appetite and motivation to do simple tasks. I have to fight being skeptical of my therapist's incentive, but I genuinely believe antidepressants will help at least for a while. fuck me up famiglia
cooking rice, chicken and eggs to eat with spinach and avocado and furikake for flavor

there's a melody that's been stuck in my head all day and I can't remember the name
help me out fambala
>tfw you attached the wrong pic because you're a failure at everything
>cooking rice, chicken and eggs to eat with spinach and avocado and furikake for flavor
solid choices anon, envious
what does furikake taste similar to?
on antidepressants, i can't vouch either way
though i'm entirely sure there's better ways to cure depression (or stop it from forming) and dependency on pills is daunting
>what does furikake taste similar to?
honestly idk it's hard to tell. It's got a really crunchy texture and it's both salty and sweet. I think the sesame seeds are the strongest flavor in it. I guess it kinda reminds me of toasted pb&j with chunky pb.
yeah dependency has been my biggest concern for the last couple of years since I first started therapy, so I've avoided it for that long. The reason why I'm seriously considering it now is because my brother took them for a few months and tapered off, and now he's got his shit together. Of course, a lot of his discipline carried over from his training in Nat'l Guard, but I figure the pills helped somewhat, and that I might just need that slight push to get more shit done so I can feel like less of a waste of space, ya feel? Idk. How long you been on yours? Also, which meds are they?
no meds here, anon
was heavily considering them about 18 months back but depression is something that i've now kicked of my own accord
i'm pretty sure it was both forcing myself to believe in the strength of my will to overcome most mental barrier and picking up the hobby of reading which allowed me to start being content with life again
if you make yourself truly believe that you're happy then you're happy
Video game streams. Boring, I know.

Germanon reporting in from schkool
Kids on slope is awesome music wise and the scenes where they actually do music related stuff rock but like 50% of the series is pseudo romantic coming of age shit which kinda turned me off :/ still great if you like jazz, though!
It's a hard trade off. You sadly can't know if they're for you or not until you tried. It helps for some, for a lot of people it doesn't all that much... But it's worth the try. Stay non addicted fa m <3
In between anime shows atm.
I want to minimize the amount of possessions I own so I can be more portable.
I've been jamming Offspring lately.
>Kids On The Slope
yeah I definitely agree with you there, the romance gets a bit too melodramatic, but I guess it's okay compared to a lot of other slice-of-life anime. I like the backstories they show for the characters and I like how adults play huge roles in the story too, so it's not just a shallow love story. I felt like crying when I saw the the scene with the drummer's grandma. ;-;
I'm loving the jazz references. I'm trying to check out every reference they include. There was one part where they mentioned Elvin Jones and Tommy Flanagan. I never heard of Tommy before that, and I loved it. Man, I'm kinda sad that I probably will never find a show like this again, but at least I have 6 more episodes to go. :P
Whatcha been watching, Germanon?
yeah I think you're right. I figure I should try though, since I've tried so many new routines over the years and put in work. Even now I'm eating healthy and exercising, and my family's more supportive than ever before, but I still feel like shit a lot of the time. Maybe it's the lack of close friends, but that doesn't seem that crucial when I think about it. Idk maybe in a few months, things will just naturally get better. Maybe it's just because I've been broke during the past 4 months. :/ Honestly, I think that might play a big part, but idk.
Thanks for the support, Germanon. You da best. :)
>Kids on the slope
Yeah Watanabe is basically the only animu series shit I watch. I tried Tokyo Ghoul, Barackamon and SAO but they all sucked ass.
Im not as big as youre with Jazz so not getting the references probably stole a whole meta-level from me, so its understandably that you enjoy it more :)
Besides that I havent been watching much, anyone seen Deadp00l yet?
Well, you can do as much sports as you want, if your problem is that you dont feel understood or that you have nobody to share your life with/that takes you seriously it wont go away from that. The first and really big step to stoping that shizzle is finding out what the problem is.
But If you really dont know why youre feeling how youre feeling that antidepressants can really help, I hope you beat that shit soon, you seem to put a lot of work into it and you deserve to be happy mate! :)
Seems logical, I prolly couldnt resist a metal snuff bullet aswell :^)
How is coke like? All my friends that take it dont take it to chill, mostly if they want to brawl or know that they want to make a fool out of themselfs and just dont have the confidence right now.
Oh wow I didn't know that Watanabe directed Kids. That's awesome. I just looked at his other stuff and now I've got more on my list. Terror In Resonance looks good. I liked Barakamon but I don't remember the ending so I probably didn't get much from it. I haven't watched Tokyo Ghoul or SAO but they don't seem interesting to me. Have you watched Erased? I like it a lot. It's like Case Closed but more refined and modern.
I don't think it's like a meta-level thing. I just like seeing all the references and looking into them. Like each episode title is the title of a song, so I listen to those. They also show a bunch of records in the shop scenes, so if I recognize them, then I go and listen to them if I don't know them that well. Same with the names that they mention. They don't talk about jazz in a way that confuses people. They just mention them. I think Watanabe wanted to make it easy for viewers to get into jazz.
Have you watched Paranoia Agent? I think if you like Watanabe's stuff, you'll like that one a lot. It's only 13 episodes. I love it when anime series are short and explore a lot within that time. They don't waste their time on filler. I can't watch any above 30 episodes anymore. Too much time... -_-
I feel like I know myself pretty well after years of therapy and self-reflection through writing poetry. I've been writing reflective poetry for the last 5 years. I just wrote another one two days ago. I think I just need momentum because I lose motivation for a lot of the things I want. Idk I might as well try something. I think I feel alone mostly because I'm stuck 3000 miles away from my best friends. I was so happy hanging out with them and playing music all the time at home. But I was also feeling so much pressure from my dad who was starting to go crazy, so that's why I had to move away. I'm trying to get certified in CAD engineering so I can move back home in a couple of years and be happy around my friends again. sigh
