My cells I think? I eat food and they regenerate or something like that. I was never too good at biology.
>trying this hard to fit in
You realize most people on /a/ are between 25 and 30 and have STEM related careers, right? Did you really fall for the "NEET loser" meme?
Trust me it's a joke and they're just doing it because they think it gives them cool-cred, but nobody really cares or notices because they're anonymous anyways. If these guys were suicidal, anime wouldn't be the thing that is holding them back. Most likely bitterness and the desire for revenge. Some of them will do it and start a school shooting but most of them are just bitter they got rejected by a girl. They'll be alright. You can believe me because I post the same shit and I don't mean any of it.
I did that on purpose, if you didn't see that you just fell for my trick.
>I-I swear I'm going to kill myself!!
Yeah okay, you're totally not angsty or edgy!
Then kill all the disgusting boys! Protect the lolis' purity!
I refuse to die before making something worth remembering for future generations. I have no other reason to live. I figure if I'm alive I might as well try to make something good while I can. I don't understand living for living's sake.
Blogging in a blog thread.
>it's a joke
>it gives them cool-cred
No, not really.
>comes to this board like a conquistador
>this is now my land and everyone is like me
Remove the filth and keep the little girls for yourself? Sure.
It was a baseless claim with only myself as evidence, but there has to be a few more like me who just spouts that shit to be funny and to look like a real suicidal retard.
This. I'm pretty sure a lot of us visit /g/ regularly and live yuppy lives. I'm 23 and I have a job in the bay area doing things for people's smartphones. By the way, I want to kill myself.
The little angels wont turn into disgusting adults then
This, if we weren't trying to fit in, I swear that the waifu thing wouldn't have picked up. It's the prime example to trying to fit in and look cool among /a/ posters.
Is this a new meme? We have daily OPM discussions here.
Did you fuck her?
>no onee-chan to protect and have a special bond and relationship with
I've projected multiple times in this thread and you still haven't noticed I'm doing it on purpose or are you just saying that because it's fun to say the word projection?
I love the "I only post on one board" meme.
It shows how desperate they are trying to fit in.
make sure to give her a kiss tonight, anon.
Being a crossboarder isn't just about using other boards, it's about the way you act and most OPM fags are quite obviously not here for anything but their mediocre "hype" Flavor of the month
Thanks for the explanation. I was under the assumption that the word crossboarder meant someone who posts on multiple boards.
Also being able to be the little girl in VR worlds. It may be possible in the future that we actually can live in Hidamari or YuruYuri-like worlds.
We could meet up in there and watch anime on in-world TVs or something.
No, seriously, what's with the influx of normalfags recently? Everything was nice and normal a few months ago, but since about 6 months ago the board has gone straight to shit. Not even "Night time /a/" is safe now.
Are we getting raided? I don't want to believe that /a/ has fallen this low. The post in this thread and many others look like something out of fucking Facebook.
I'm actually convinced 95% of the post in this thread are being posted by some IRC chat trying to troll us. It's fucking impossible that there are so many normalfags actively posting in this board. It's insane.
You waltz in, completely disregard the established board culture, do whatever the fuck you want, call whomever you disagree with "kids," and you say you are not being selfish? Just kill yourself. The human race can do without people like you.
Okay post your address and take a picture with your head in a noose with a timestamp. You'll prove to everyone that we have people here who are actually serious about killing themselves! Don't worry, we got you taken care of and we'll call the police in a bit.
Just like culture in the real world, /a/ culture is also constantly evolving. The longer you're stuck being the lame oldfag the less you'll enjoy your time here. The new and cool thing is that waifus are lame -- who wants to only love one anime character? Also, it's no longer cool to be suicidal because it's too edgy.
That's what I thought. People who say that shit don't even mean it. So stop saying it!
I actually worried about this board quality. Have you read any late night threads recently? How about those OPM threads? They are nothing but Facebook-tier normalfags. Can you imagine what would happen if those posters get used to this site?
I mean, normalfag have always been here, but the thing now is that no one say anything.
Dozens of threads filled with:
>"why are you so mean?"
>"gosh, stop trying to fit in"
>"dude, you should get out more"
>"so I and my friend"
>"this is so sad :c"
>"did you see the new update on facebook? i'm so fucking hype!!!"
And so on. It's sickening
The funny thing is that's not exactly true. My agenda is basically to change /a/ so that waifus and being suicidal are no longer cool.
There is nowhere in my Apt where I could put up a noose, so I would have to drill some sort of hole and put something in that hole that could hold the weight of a human. I also don't know where you can purchase rope.
It was just an example. You could have took a picture with a bullet wound up your anus for all I cared. I just wanted to see someone stick to their word and show that their not just saying it to fit in.
>being a conformist
You're a funny guy I'll give you that much
I do agree with what you're saying. But this is a good thread.
>I just like to parrot what everyone says to look cool
Yeah okay mister I've-got-a-waifu man. Let me tell you I had multiple waifus until I deemed it uncool to even have waifus. You can keep parroting losers for all I care.
Pic related, it's you being suicidal
/a/ still has some good anons
>" It's fucking impossible that there are so many normalfags actively posting in this board"
>"The human race can do without people like you"
>muh secret club
I genuinely like your post because it's fresh. I just wanted you to know that because some people won't like it.
Here's a pro tip retard. Really not a single person fucking gives a shit whether you browse other boards or not. Fuck you could honestly browse other shitty sites that people often use as a boogeyman. All you have to do is adjust your behavior to the place you're posting in. That's the fucking problem with retarded crossboarders, the fact that they bring the cancer of other places they browse over because they're too stupid to adjust.
Here's a sample post from your average /v/ thread, usually in reply to an /a/ crossboarder:
W-what is that thing!?
>Muh Board culture is different than your Board culture
Guys literally my first board was /a/ and its the same shit but, people take this place more seriously for some reason idk.
Yes yes, you get it my man.
Here's an average picture posted on /jp/, the most misunderstood board on /a/, I mean 4chan.
Post yourself dying to prove your point
Because I'll get to death eventually anyway. Why the fuck would I rush it? Plus there's a lot of anime/manga/LNs/VNs/Japanese dog poop that I haven't consumed yet, there are plenty coming in the future and life's pretty fun when you don't take it seriously at all.
Why are you replying to an illiterate?
I'm allowed to pursue my agenda after proudly revealing it. What are you gonna do? Keep calling me a normalfag, normalfag? I can tell you I have 3x more waifus than you do, normalfag.
N-no, you're a normalfag!!! I swear you're more normal than I am.
Yeah yeah okay, mister I've-only-got-one-waifu. You're the coolest and you sure make a good point. Come back when you've got something other to say other than "normalfag normalfag normalfag!" or else how else am I supposed to respond other than calling you a normalfag back?
Normal fags? Holy shit this is the most overused meme on this entire site. like really do you have to call everyone a "normal fag" because they find something weird? or gross? or sacrilegious? like Honestly this shit is the most Redundant saying Ive ever heard, do you feel special because you have a "unique" fetish or particularly a "unique" view point of some kind that separates yours from the rest of the world? And y'all say your nothing like Tumblr. Or Reddit?! There's literally no difference from y'all and the rest of the internet!
This. The more popular your viewpoint on a board is the more "normal" you are in that board. No matter what you'll be a normalfag, which makes the term pointless. Unless you're truly unique, neutral, and do not conform to anything, which is difficult because then nobody will like you.
Stop posting normalfag shit and I'll have a conversation with you, but you don't have anything else to say
Hating something doesn't mean you think you're better than it.
It's not strange unless you're a normalfag though, you should be used to shit like this
>I don't even believe there are any anons left in this thread
I can't have a conversation with you because you're a normalfag.
>This thread seems funny.
Hello virgins~ What do you have against normal people? Seriously speaking, all you are accomplishing is making us laugh even more. Please, stop behaving like a bunch of faggots, faggots. This place is more fun now thank to all the new people that are coming here this past weeks.
>Well, /a/? What's keeping you alive?
My boyfirend and my parents, duh. They take care of me while I study in the uni.
That's what you think, but I came up with the term and all you guys did was bastardize it with you own interpretations to fit your own goals. I hate it when people do that!
>Wait what the fuck is going on in this thread
Mods have stopped deleting off-topic in the past few weeks, this is /a/ moderating itself. Salting the earth so plants won't grow.
I asked my family, subtly, what would they think if I died, same with my friends, and now I know for a fact something that is easy enough to guess.
Even if life is a constant torment and even breathing, something that makes you painfully aware of your existence, is a sort of punishment, you still don't have the "right" to die. You can only be forced to live and smile on, if you care even a bit about those who had come to love you.
It's not so much how their life would be without you, it is about the pain inflicted on somebody when they forever think they are somehow at fault, since someone they were close to ended themselves.
It's the kind of scar that would follow them forever.
of course, fear of death is a factor, I am not fully altruistic, but even so the main issue is that I don't think I have the right to be released for this disgusting prison of flesh and pain until I am free from all the humans that keep on getting hooked on my daily life.
I had been trying to subtly get away for 10 years now, ever since the age of 15.
>not a meme
Holy fuck kill yourself my man, oh wait you were already planning to, my bad
You really know nothing about a person's psyche. Like close literally nothing.
Even the silliest thing could be good enough for holding back somebody from suicide. The difference between life and death is a single step, and I don't necessarily mean a metaphorical one.
I am waiting to finish a few things I am reading before offing myself.
You can thank me. I cause most of these threads, usually once a week or so. The last one was where everyone got all riled up when I called them out on their waifu bullshit.
No you fuck off you normalfag!!! And kill yourself along the way
Yeah keep us updated on that, pfff.
As you can see we have a somewhat serious thread with maybe 2 overcompensating anons. What are you even trying to prove. That anime and brain aenerisms go hand in hand?
Actually, I think that no one who post in here can be considered "normal", but we're here to talk about anime and to enjoy ourselves for a few minutes with different people. That's all. This fight is funny but pointless.
I'm not from reddit, anon. This is the first anime board I ever use. I came here a few months ago, five actually.
I don't understand this meme. Please explain.
Nah, not even close. Going by the nostalgia threads alone you can tell the people on /co/ were kids at the 80's, and at best early 90's, and we are talking old enough to remember.
A lot of man childs, yes, but not teens. Teens are at /b/.
Yeah, sure, you're waiting to finish a few things before offing yourself.
And after you've finished them, you'll still be here posting on /a/, not killing yourself. And when you're done with that, you'll have some other excuse to not do it, and then another excuse.
Talk is fucking easy. You say you're going to and then you don't, big suprise, you sure proved him wrong there. If you really wanted to kill yourself finishing reading a few things isn't what would be holding you back.
It's usually unintentional, but people start disagreeing with me and I refuse to back down. That gets them real mad because it goes against their cultural values (/a/ cultural values, that is).
No I just didn't want to read it because it sounded like a normalfag wrote it.
The whole /a/ was better mentality is what I think a direct cause, this board is now /b/ with cartoons and closet pedophiles. With that said there should be no reason why a scrawny bed dweller should openly feel like a king just because he likes madoka.
Anon pls. I'm pretty sure that it was always like that.
Yeah, a lot of shit happened recently, but I'm' ok. Don't worry.
Gotta love how sure you are that you are being clever. It's cute even.
Seriously though, at the very least research a bit. People had killed and died over the silliest of things.
Life is given a lot importance, but it certainly is a very brittle and silly thing
How hard do you need to believe that? seems like a lot.
It's not as if one truly had all that much that needs to be done, it's not as if importance was universally assigned to tasks.
I had tried before, tested. It's pretty hard, to be honest, with the natural reflexes and all that. Yet the internet helps, nowadays you can buy a suicide kit off a shopping page.
A tank of helium and a simple plastic mask for what in my country is called a "nebulisation" and off you go to rocket land no pain involved.
Thanks I like being called cute. Remember to kill yourself in the most painful way possible, I'm rooting for you!
Sword art online and evasive shit
He's not, or else he would have done it already. Why would someone suicidal hold off for a few books? It makes no sense. It's like waiting for a broken red light to turn green on a deserted street.
>been posting on /a/ just over a decade now
>grew up into a normalfag with a decent life
>think of all those other /a/nons I grew up with who are still NEETs
>think of all the /a/nons who didn't make it
I'm glad you enjoy my thread, feel free to subscribe and like my posts.
You should. It's common sense to try and understand people, but pretend you don't due to courtesy. You just nod like an idiot while fully understanding, so you get a feeling of superiority that you believe unique.
No, fuck you. I will go in rampage and kill as many children as I can, because fuck children. I don't care how cute you are, I would kill you too if I could. I can't though, sucks.
I will go however the fuck I go, I just need to finish that bucket list, and then hope I get a good chance to disappear.
You gotta be really fucking stupid to think if somebody hasn't killed himself already he just won't'.
Why would there even be suicide attempts? They wouldn't had done it yet, so they wouldn't.
Lights turn when there is nobody there, stuff fall when there is nobody to see. Stuff you are certain of today will turn to mistakes tomorrow, steps forward would be steps backwards.
Things are not what you make them out to be, there is only what it is. Life doesn't need to make sense, not to you at least. It just happens.
Not even saturday nights are safe, good to know /a/ is worse than it usually is now.
Go have some drinks you shits.
Dude, all I see are words, you can keep typing them but I'll just treat them as you lying to yourself and to the internet. You know what to do to shut everyone up, but I doubt you're going to do it. Maybe when you finish those books right? Also, don't mind me I'm just drunkposting, and I'd rather see you live because I like living people.
I just wanted everyone to make it, Anon. They'd only hate me if they're suffering. And them suffering makes me sad.
>Lying about caring about the welfare of the site's users
Why do normalfags pull this shit all the time? It's transparent as fuck every time and it's not as if you're actually receiving brownie points for trying to adhere to what you believe to be a higher morality, were you even as subtle as you believe you were or anyone else who pulls this shit does. On some level, I think it's subconcious.
No you fuck off, just remember that even if you killed yourself, one person on /a/ liked you even if everyone else hated you.
Don't you understand, you f/a/ggots? At any moment, you too could become a normalfag. It happened to me. It'll happen to you.
Unless you become the 50 yr old+ guys with grey ponytails at my LGS. Or kill yourselves.
I need not to convince you, I just think it is really silly, not mocking you here I mean it, that you think people won't kill themselves when they are telling people they will.
It's not that weird to just want to let go of some stress, to tell somebody your plans, perhaps even hoping you will be stopped, perhaps hoping even one people release it is not a joke, while knowing full well that you are not about to be taken seriously. So much so that I can go the extra mile and explain this, nobody will give a shit, believe it, or even try to do anything, not that they could even if they could.
Nobody needs to, though. Life is individual, and each person has to do what they can with their own.
I just has stopped caring since forever ago. I never got the ability to be happy, so I am just holding my self back as long as I can. Perhaps I made my bucket list in an attempt to make myself last as much as possible, due to fear and shame most likely.
All I know fo real, is that I won't die naturally.
You don't like me though and I certainly don't like you, so stop shitposting.
I also don't know why you're so caught up on suicide when I never claimed to be suicidal
>At any moment, you too could become a normalfag.
OK that made me laugh. You obviously have a very different circumstance that wasn't as bad as you think
I am almost 30, went to college and have had a decent full time job for years. Doesn't mean I am okay. Anime/manga/alcohol are the only things keeping me sane. And my
waifu of course
It's okay you feel that way if you're genuine. But most people here aren't. They lie about killing themselves. I've used that lie myself just for banter and jokes. If you're serious about killing yourself, feel free, I'll take you seriously from now on and don't take any children with you. Have fun with the rest of your life and remember to make that one last post to prove me wrong.
I'm not gonna die until I see nuclear fusion being the main source of energy.
If I don't kill myself in the last year of my course, I'll put all my effort into nuclear fusion reactor development.
Commiting suicide would imply I have a self to kill.
Don't shit up my thread with your epic memes, son
Shut up you dirty normalfag Parisian terrorist
I think the difference between a normalfag and your typical NEET on /a/ is that the latter can only consider human relationships in a cost-benefit way. They can't conceive of empathy without reward.
The idea that I started as one among many anti-social, unhappy, awkward NEETs and ended up becoming happy is depressing when I consider my peers that are still unhappy. Or the ones that "succeeded" but dropped all of their hobbies to fit in. Both are depressing.
>You obviously have a very different circumstance that wasn't as bad as you think
Nigga, my NEET life ran out of funds and I got booted onto the street. I was homeless for 2 years. I used to shitpost from McDonalds since I still had my laptop.
I know I shouldn't hurt nobody, but a part of me wants to go with bang, make people know I was alive and I hated everything. Just a child's tantrum, I know.
If you ever read about a murder suicide, or some crazy bastard that made the police kill him, then maybe I got the balls to pull it off, otherwise I would just die quietly in some hole.
Don't worry though, I don't really plan on hurting no children. I don't need to ruin somebody else's life just because I am not happy with my own.
Anyway, I should go. I work tomorrow too. I am saving money for a trip. I want to go somewhere at least once before I am done.
To be honest
the other day I finished reading Himizu and the ending made me feel so depressed that I started seriously thinking about my future and going back to college. I have been trying to live the boring monotonous life the MC was struggling to obtain and realized that I keep holding myself back. I think I'm going to give myself one more year to make up my mind and if I can't I'm going to leave.
freeter > neet
As a cynic myself, it's easy to be a cynic. But that's basically being cynical about cynicism.
>can only consider human relationships in a cost-benefit way. They can't conceive of empathy without reward.
I just don't think you're as saintly as you're presenting yourself. Empathy is cheap and whether you're cognizant of it or not, alot of human relationships can boil down to simple cost-benefit considerations with some things added in the mix. I just don't think types like yourself are willing to acknowledge it as edgy as this may be coming off.
Hmm you sure you're not an actual terrorist?
I can't come up with a good enough reason to kill myself and it would go against my religious views
No, I don't want to kill anyone I just want them to stop posting
>piss me off in the the thread that derailed into /pol/ even after giving an "apology"
>piss me off and purposefully antagonize me in the r/a/dio thread
>piss me off with awful "advice" in the thinly veiled blog thread
>piss me off in this thread
He just admitted to being a Parisian terrorist responsible for 9/11
What are you talking about, anon?
Whatever, you're boring. Bye.
It's not saintly. At all. It's normal. That's why I'd be called a normalfag. If you are so cynical you only view human relationships as cost-benefit then you are not normal.
Sure, you can boil down any relationship to cost-benefit. Practical concerns are a part of anything. But ignoring all other components of a relationship doesn't make them disappear. And yeah, empathy can be cheap. My empathy for my fellow f/a/ggots is pretty cheap since there's nothing I can do to help. But it's not cheap if you sacrifice something of your own, violating that cost-benefit analysis, just to help another person.
No, I committed the most normalfag of infractions: I have a GF.
I do live in an apartment. My job actually has a ton of mobility, but I'm still a lazy fuck. I make sure I'm only a co-author on any research I work on, even if I conceptualized it. That way I avoid the bustle of the private sector and the petulant high-school slap-fights of academia.
I mean, I may bet a normalfag, but I'm still a lazy hobbiest. I did well enough in life to get happy and comfy. If I was ambitious I wouldn't have been a NEET in the first place.
Then you obviously were never fucked in anyway just lazy. Some people actually have reasons for being a NEET other than laziness and they can't just magically become normalfags by trying
>But it's not cheap if you sacrifice something of your own, violating that cost-benefit analysis, just to help another person.
Except it's still cost-benefit, just not calculated or rational or analytical.
If you're brain can't handle it, it's physically impossible for you. You might have to settle for VR.
Anyway, it's very different to say the least. Her voice, her touch, her smell are all there and yet they aren't. Still she wakes me with her big bright smile and a cheer in her voice. Then I know that our day together is going to be okay. I wash her back and she washes mine. Sometimes we even
hold hands while taking long, gentle walkson the beach before we fall asleep to her favorite animu under the starry sky. It's nice.
>Some people actually have reasons for being a NEET
>Some people actually have reasons for being a NEET other than laziness and they can't just magically become normalfags by trying
That only applies if you have an actual mental illness and not just self-diagnosed depression or mild social anxiety.
Like what? If you mean physical or mental disabilities, then yeah. But with few exceptions, those aren't insurmountable walls. You can overcome things like inexperience, social anxiety, or a rough childhood. I'd know from experience.
But don't kid yourself. Most NEETs are just lazy and scared (which feeds into laziness).
Don't be pedantic. You know what I'm getting at.
Well yeah. Killing yourself is always on the table.
But if you are going to live (alone) then might as well work and buy all the dakimakuras and figures to your heart's content.
