The Flood / Re: Women want equal rights
« on: January 23, 2016, 11:31:58 AM »
There are a lot of different groups of people that all have very different views from each other on this subject that would all disagree with this statement.

I don't think it's possible for men and women to be equal when they're so fundamentally different while simultaneously being satisfied with their positions in society.

The Flood / Re: Does Japan have the inverse of Weebs?
« on: January 22, 2016, 07:03:39 PM »
Despite the blatant racism, the country is very "Americanized" compared to say China or any other Asian country that isn't South Korea. When they were introduced to vending machines and game shows, they want nuts for that shit. Now vending machines in Japan are a common site in neighborhoods able to sell things from snacks/soda to toilet paper and socks. TV consists of mostly Drama and game shows (which is very much copied from American TV lineups). The whole anime things is either prime time weekends for the high school/NEET audience, or early morning cartoons for children getting ready for school (which unfortunately is mostly watched by NEETS). How does the following image make you feel?




To answer your original question: Yes, some of them are so deep in America's ass, they try to 1-up it on everything wrong with our country to boot.
They watch American Animation, have imaginary wives with our cartoon characters, try to use American slang etc...

She's gotten better, but I still keep my distance. Her quirks really get to me, and she can be very selfish still.

I get you. Real life doesn't always pan out like the Chinese cartoons.

Hard to get along with your imouto when they act like a turbo-bitch for no reason tbqh imho

The Flood / Re: Debate Pt. 2: But is THIS sign in use?
« on: January 21, 2016, 07:53:23 PM »
Its use could be to give us something to discuss.

Alright, so you're saying that the sign has uses apart from those intended for it. That's an abstraction of its utility. I'm a human being, who would usually do human being things, but I could also be used as a mattress. It's possible, but is is practical or likely? What are the practical uses for this sign, apart from acting as a sign?- which it clearly wants to avoid. You could use it as a sign of settlement, but there would be half-a-dozen other things that would signify the same thing: people are somewhere nearby. And in most cases that knowledge would have already been at hand independent of any environmental clues. Assuming that the sign remains where it is, the scope for its usefulness, for all intents and purposes, is either extremely narrow, or extremely vaporous and subjective in a physically impractical or irrelevant way (ditto mentally, really). The sign is possibly being put to some strange use, in theory this is true. The actuality is far more likely to be that the lid is on the jam, and you'd have to be pretty perverse, and indifferent towards wasted resources, to sit there and stare at the lid.

YOU may use Jam to simply modify yourself but maybe I use jam for other things? I put jam on duct tape and leave it on the floor overnight as an inexpensive way of catching cockroaches. The point of what I'm saying in this post is that other people may have different uses for that sign than what you may believe. Hell, I could even argue the sign can be used as a reference point for somebody like a way marker. Just because it's not in your personal use, or because it's not being used for its intended purpose does not mean it's not being used in a general sense of the word.

Nope, I'mma take a stand here, and, all redness aside, say that declaring you're not in use is not a state of use. It's simply like putting a lid on some jam: the lid just tells you that the jam is not in use. Sure, the lid is being used to seal the jam, but that's of virtually no significance to us because we only use the jam to modify ourselves.

But it is in use. We used it to figure out if there was any form of hazard down the road. Since the sign is red, we're immediately drawn to the possibility of a potential hazard, however because it says "not in use" than the red meaning is irrelevant and as such, we used the sign to deduce that no known hazard is upcoming.

See... you're reaching. You feel tempted to say it's not in use. Wouldn't that be so much easier?

Colors can be interpreted in many ways. Universally, red means some form of hazard. It's a warning to that nothing hazardous is going on down that road. Furthermore, just like the first sign "use" is very ambiguous. Use could mean anything. It could mean "Not currently used for X situation" that could call for a hazardous sign. Maybe it means "Currently not in use for directions" of some sort. With that information we can deduce that the sign is giving us information that no necessary information is needed and therefore is providing some use to us.

I just copied off of Google, highlighting from the end of the definition to the start at a completely arbitrary point.

i like how you superfluously added the definition for "noun" there

If you wanted to know about the sign, it gives you the name of who acquired it. It's directing information about itself which is adequate enough to claim that it is being used to give information.

The sign is telling us who acquired it and what it's purpose is (nothing of value) so therefore it is in use.

Quote
noun
1.
an object, quality, or event whose presence or occurrence indicates the probable presence or occurrence of something else.
But its entire use is to direct you away from it since it's not in use. So maybe it's not always not being used, but it's not always being used either.

Maybe we're coming at this in a 'black and white' fashion instead of looking for grey. Is what I said above an answer, or an admission that there is no answer...

I agree in that Hollywood is extremely stale in the past 20 years or so over how it handles story telling, especially since almost all movies these days are either extremely shallow or adaptions of books so the story is either flat or everyone who was going to bother watching it already knows how it's going to play out because they read the book. This is still hazardous thinking though, because the whole point of a surprise in the story is that it feeds off the viewer's reaction to it. Spoiling it ruins the whole point to begin with. Yeah, it sucks that X scenario happened to Y character but if you felt strongly about that character and it makes you upset or happy, then the surprise did it's job in invoking emotion out of you over the path the story is taking.

Fans of Evangelion 3.0 wouldn't have gone so ape shit if the movie had played out exactly as they have been speculating for three years. Everyone was speculating every wild thing under the moon over how the movie was gonna play out and when it comes out and does something completely different...well long story short, it hold a pretty solid 3/5 stars for most watchers not because it's a legitimate 3/5 but because everyone votes it either 1/5 or 5/5.

Spoiling it ruins the emotion which is the whole point in telling a story, you may choose to feel a certain way over it, but other people are very passionate about their interests. How do you think the now late-Daniel would have felt had he been spoiled before he saw the rough cut of the movie? Probably miserable. Some people are that serious.

Then this is why you go dark from not just Sep7agon, the entire internet.

Now... I'm not going to spoil shit anymore, and I used to let spoilers get to me. But with the amount of crap these days that comes out from Hollywood and the gaming industry, getting spoiled became rather a preference of mine, because I get to know shit that the majority don't know. In short, I don't like surprises.


Sorry bud, this is the real deal whether you like it or not. Everything from the posting style to the over dramatic upcoming apocalypse.

That doesn't help when you go to actually see the movie and you find the "spoiler" you try to force yourself from believing is being set up in the story. This doesn't create a thrill of seeing whether or not it happens that viewers want, instead it creates a tension where the viewer is telling themselves they don't want it to happen when they know it's going to happen because it will ruin the surprise.

or you pretend you never read it.

It's not a real welcoming place tbh fam. You leave for an extended period of time, come back and drama whores start losing their shit over nothing derailing the thread just because you post. That sure helps in the long run.

I think I have about 500MB on the external HDD. On my PC though not much cause I haven't been actively searching.

8459
Are there hard copy versions of the games? And does it take a powerful computer to play them?
Physical copies of the PC version aren't printed anymore so you're going to have to buy used if you want it to be inexpensive (And don't worry about product key locking, this was before DRM was a thing on PC games). Also the games came out eons ago, your grandma's toaster could run them.

8460
What kind of games are they and what do I need to play them?
RPG's, they're basically a Star Wars version of Mass Effect. You can get both on Steam for pretty cheap.
