Think of it as one of the only signifiers you can get here. There are truly gems to be dug on this site, if you know the right boards. But because everyone is an anon there are no guarantees.

Do you guys spend a lot of time thinking about 4chan? This place has been my only online home for 15 years now. It's changed a lot over the years but nothing else comes close.

I don't think about it much, and I even took a hiatus for a while, though I used to lurk on different boards. (/k/, /out/, /g/, /diy/) After a few years, I ended up coming back, and I still take breaks now and then. I've tried alternatives, none are good. Nothing comes close to this, and while I do think it'd be nice if some of the racism/sexism were a bit toned down, just ignoring it works better—especially since it keeps out moronic newfags who want to shit on everything or read mediocre books.

I was, and still am, a bright guy. Completed high school with A’s in Calculus 1-3 + DiffEq, won physics student of the year at my uni during my sophomore year, and will graduate undergrad 2 years early with a 3.8 gpa. Only now though is it setting in that, in all likelihood, I will not advance humanity or my country in any measurable way. The real innovators and geniuses are just much much smarter than I am, and also are workaholics. I’ve been getting into philosophy to reconcile some problems I’ve been facing with myself and it’s helping me a lot. I’m just so happy that I know that if I do nothing else for the world, I will one day have children and get to raise a family. I don’t want the academic or research life, I want the simpler and more humble way of life.

I've been slipping into a bad depression again, which always tends to give my thoughts a narrow, frozen clarity. Although my ability to act is virtually catatonic, I am still able to think with an intensity and sometimes to write. Typically i think and write about depression, documenting it from the inside out, like a wound that is attempting to stitch itself up. My collected journaling about depression is almost a work in itself. It's weirdly soothing and spacey: I like the word psychonaut: I'm a sailor of the mind. This particular patch of the mental sea is like the great Pacific trash vortex rather than an glittering expanse of cerulean

I would say it is worth it. It's a long process to get it set up and play through a campaign on your own, but it's especially rewarding to beat the monsters, as long as you don't cheat. It's a very hard game where you have to learn through defeat and error. Every lost settlement tells a story and some characters and fights I can still remember years later.

The world and aesthetic is really beautiful, it's the only board game I can truly liken to a work of art with some of the most unique creature designs and lore I have seen. The lore is like Dark souls, in that there isn't a lot of it and you have to dig and connect the dots, but it's there. Poots has put a lot of effort in to making sure that the elements of the world interconnect and make sense.

However, it's not a cheap game, though I'm sure you are aware. It's also a large time commitment regarding assembling the miniatures and playing, as a campaign can take well over 50 hours to complete.

>When every pencil meant a sacrifice
>his parents boarded him at a school in town,
>slaving to free him from the stony fields,
>the meagre acreage that bore them down.

>They blushed with pride when, at his graduation,
>they watched him picking up the slender scroll,
>his passport from the years of brutal toil
>and lonely patience in a barren hole.

>When he went in the Bank their cups ran over.
>They marvelled how he wore a milk-white shirt
>work days and jeans on Sundays. He was saved
>from their thistle-strewn farm and its red dirt.

>And he said nothing. Hard and serious
>like a young bear inside his teller`s cage,
>his axe-hewn hands upon the paper bills

Yeah that's for sure. But I really like the ethics of Magnus and the style of Aronian. I think that Tal's playstyle shines the most taking in consideration the political context the chess culture of the time. Despite all that Nepo has good, the dryness of modern chess makes it so that it doesn't have the same magic as when Tal played.

Entirely too much. I'm allowed to write letters and got so fixated on my last ex that I wrote her a long schizoid rambling letter, but miraculously she finds that kind of inane shit interesting or poetic or something so she wrote back and now we're going to keep doing that. I didn't tell her we got our phones back for Thanksgiving, that seems like it would kill the magic.

Of an idea that I might actually turn into something. A longish short-story in 3 parts. Takes place in/around a high school auditorium where the same play is being conducted. Years pass between each part; the narrators change, and the perspective progresses from third-person to first-person stream-of-consciousness style as the characters become less and less connected to their communities and more and more self-involved over time (by the 3rd part, the reader has little to no clue of what's happening in the play because the narrator is so self-absorbed)

I have also been reading through bits of this. It has old prefaces by Tolstoy which explain the process of his writing the novel together with criticism from both during the time it was published and from the following hundred years. The essays are perhaps best read after reading the novel as referencing character deaths is common, this is my second readthrough so I've not had to worry about that. I've also listened to 1812 Overture a few too many times while reading lately, it fits the work well

Understandable. I do this too. I sometimes wonder if intentionally seeking out books that match my outlook end up just reinforcing my more negative emotions though. Like when I was suicidal, reading books about suicide seemed to make me think about it more and more. It can be good to read something radically different every now and then- but this comes with it's own issues too I suppose.

If you care for a rec., Shusaku Endo's Wonderful Fool is a short and very affirming little book that broke me out of a prolonged inward-depressive spiral. It's got religious themes but I don't think you need to be religious to enjoy it.

I relate 100%. But for some reason I just don't care enough to change my outlook. I have done it before, but it feels so fake and I'd rather be miserable than lie to myself. It seems similar to doing drugs to take your mind off of your problems, but maybe even worse because you'll actually believe that things got better.

I only found the first two chapters of TSatF difficult, and the first one is much easier on a second read. I do find the second chapter's last two pages or so very challenging, though. Absalom, Absalom! might use a more complex prose, but I find it easier to get through because it all feels so streamlined. Many events are retold over and over again too, so it's harder to miss the gist of what is happening in the book.
