Gard-nin' So its the end of February, which means, if you grow your garden from seeds, its about that time to start germinating.

I was wondering if anyone was interested in doing it as like, a group thing.

Growing vegetable plants is really inexpensive. You can get seeds at the dollar store, normally 4 packs for a buck, and then if you can get your hands on a few paper cups, a sunny south facing window and some dirt, you're all set!

The risk and costs are low, (if you fk up, the market still exists) the payoff is high, (eating something you grew yourself is a great feeling of accomplishment) and growing your own food is a really good skill to have!
Its a no-brainier for the person looking for a hobby with a payoff that has limited funds/time!

If you ever wanted to try, I thought this would be a cool way to get into it, keep each other interested, and combine our knowledge.

Im no expert, but i do have the basics down, so i can help get people started.

I'm starting soon, so if there is interest let me know, and I can start taking pics and stuff of what im doing to get going!

>that moment when you realize the meditation you thought you were doing while working was really just a special form of disassociation you invented yourself as a result of too much computer use.

Walp, time to start from scratch.

I have social anxiety, and as I worked, upon encountering a person, I would A) Get anxiety. B) Mentally freeze my thought processes C) Disassociate them away. This is unusual and almost felt like a kind of meditation due to the fact that I was able to freeze my thought processes. I now realize that I developed this destructive "skill" as a result of watching so many youtube videos as well as from the extra mental work I had to do from lag from playing hundreds of hours of horribly laggy video games.

Vidja Music There are some video game tracks that are more important to me than "real music" for sure.

What are some of your favorites?
Post yours and say something about it.
Post 1 at a time, lets keep this ball rolling haha.

Ill start.
Spyro 1 - Toasty
The entire spyro sound track was amazing but this specific song was always my favorite. Reminds me of being a kid and playing the game with my sister in my parents friends daughters room haha. Sound weird, but she was 19-20ish and we were only around 15 and 11, so she seemed so much older and cooler.

Also, we weren't allowed to have a PlayStation, so it was pretty important to play some PS1 haha.

books books let's talk about books I'm a little over 300 pages into Moby Dick and it's REALLY good.

There are an enormous amount of references to historical figures/events, biblical stories, and other authors/books that are mostly lost on me because I am not very well-read in that regard.

My plan is that when I finish the book I will buy my own copy and at some point go through rereading but with a highlighter to mark all the things I want to look up or read about.

I love the prose but I think it's funny how almost every sentence is what my high school english teacher would have considered a "run-on" sentence.

Nintendo switch Q&A I'm getting a Nintendo switch tomorrow, and I was wondering if any of you guys had suggestions for games that I should buy, or just advice in general.

I've desperately wanted a switch since it came out, but have been way too lazy to get one. Thanks to Ikas thread however I've been pushed over the edge, and am finally going to buy one.

The bundle that I'm getting includes Mario odyssey, and costs £299.99/€342.48/386.88. I'm going to spend around a £100/€114.16/$128.96 on games for the switch, on top of Mario odyssey which already comes with the bundle. I'm primarily thinking of buying The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, Celeste, and Hollow Knight, which should take my cost up to around £379/€432.67/$488.76. Although the games that I'm planning on buying aren't definite, because I'm sure that some of you guys will have better suggestions.

I'm willing to spend just over £400/€456.64/515.84 (Which is just under half of my NEETbucks, but well worth it considering how much I've wanted it, and how long I'll have it for.) on everything, not including a few very small miscellaneous things like drinks, food, transport, etc. So that gives you guys as aforementioned a good £100/€114.16/$128.96 to play around with. Suggest your favourite games, and or accessories for the switch and I'll consider buying them.

Ika thread.

Dune Remake.

Am I the only one who liked the Lynch movie? The sets, costumes, dialog, effects and general aesthetics are nothing short of iconic now.

Yeah, the heartplug things were bullshit and pointless gorn.
Changing the Weirding Way from Matrix-style highspeed kung fu to those shout box things was disappointing, but with the effects and camera tricks available at the time, being faithful to the book it would have probably just looked silly onscreen.
The big dramatic battle scenes were just fast cuts of extras charging back and forth in front of the camera with pyrotechnics going off in the background.

They'd damn well better keep the Mentat Mantra for the new movie. Even if it was never in the books, it is iconic.

Walking thread tl;dr: How many of you here take walks outside regularly? Let's talk about the activity/hobby of walking.

I have been taking daily walks since early November last year and I have started to really love it. Sometimes I just do a short 10-minute walk around my immediate neighborhood, sometimes I walk downtown to get coffee and/or food, sometimes I push myself to go much further distances and into neighborhoods I'm not familiar with, and a few times I have even taken walks in an entirely different town.

I walk even when its really cold, or grey, or raining, and today it even started snowing/hailing while I was walking, but it wasn't too bad. I'm still kind of amazed that I have been able to do this and am continuing to do this, because for so long I engaged in basically zero physical activity at all. I was (and to an extent still am) basically a couch potato. I also eat pretty poorly, although in recent years I have incorporated a lot of fruit into my diet, which I'm hoping helps at least a little.

This is one of those examples of something I never really thought I'd be able to do, but now here I am consistently doing it, and furthermore enjoying it, like I said every single day. It feels really good and I think it happened because I basically just reached a point where I realized "I need to do more, I need to do this" and I truly set my mind to it and just did it.

pic related is a sign in my neighborhood that amused me.

random gaming rant I've been thinking about this a bit lately. The people I'd call "gamer boomers" (gamers in the 25-35yo age range who yearn for the GLORY DAYS of DOOM and QUAKE). It drives me nuts when they go on about how "BACK IN MY DAY WE DIDN'T NEED UPDATES/DOWNLOADS, YA JUST POPPED THE DISC/CARTRIDGE IN AND PLAYED!" which is true but I think it is important to illustrate the difference between a game with cut content versus a game that is receiving quality post-launch support.

I like the idea of online video games as an ever-evolving, ever-improving experience. Why bother making a rehashed sequel if you can take what is already good and just make it better? Now of course I don't condone things like RNG/loot crates, but there are happy mediums to be had. In particular, CoD: Black Ops 4 has entirely done away with loot crates and replaced it with "tiers" which are essentially a stream of various kinds of content (emblems, camos, character skins, some new weapons etc.) that are progressed primarily through gameplay--with no RNG, you can literally see everything that you will be getting ahead of time. It takes about an hour to go up one tier, but you also skip one automatically for your first match win of each day. So you could get to tier 50 in 25 days (just over three weeks) by playing for only an hour a day as long as you won at least one of your matches. I think this is entirely fair--grindy, but far, far better than RNG loot crates.
Anyways, the point I was trying to get to, was that I think these "streams of content" as they are sometimes called are actually very beneficial for prolonging the lifespan and enjoyment and variety of a game as long as it is done properly. Properly, as in free or at least cheap, and no RNG.
Another thing with these gamer boomers is that they'll rail on games for needing too many mandatory updates, but then when they go and start a new character on Morrowind, they'll be like "ok first I gotta install 20 graphics enhancing packs, 15 texture packs, 30 weapon/armor/enemy packs, 40 bug/glitch fix packs, 25 AI improvement packs" etc. and it's like, do you not see the irony there?
No game is perfect at launch. It's just not possible. Not even my favorite games are perfect to me. So getting mad over a day one update, or a week one update, or multiple updates a month etc. is just dumb because the majority of the time they are for the purpose of making an experience that you paid for BETTER.
Gamer boomers need to accept that times are different now and you can't expect it to be like the classic/old-school days. Yes there are some shittier business practices now, but lumping every new model together as "trash trash trash" is really juvenile. Some of the best games of all time were made this decade.

The Nature of Isolation Hey everypony,

Does anypony here have experience with Total Isolation?

There are several stages of isolation - only one of which is Total.

In the first stage, a pony who is shy will avoid others simply because they are afraid of them. But once they are befriended by somepony, they will open up, perhaps becoming the best of friends.

In the second stage, a pony develops social anxiety disorder, such that they not only avoid others but their minds are actively full of various self-defeating thoughts. If the pony is befriended at this stage, then they will eventually open up, but it takes a lot of care and understanding on the part of both parties.

If a pony is not befriended by the second stage, their simultaneous social isolation and desire to connect with others will force them to look for connections in their mind. They create fantasies where, if certain conditions were only to be fulfilled, they imagine, they would become the best of friends with everypony - but these conditions are so difficult for other ponies to meet - or even know about, due to their social anxiety - that by this stage, only a total change in environment combined with the befriendment of a kind pony can help them (ex: going to college.) Ponies at this stage are often deeply philosophical, or cynical, or both.

In the fourth stage of isolation - the point of no return - a pony's thoughts by this time will have moved towards existential questions about the nature of reality itself - not just on a philosophical level as in the third stage - but on a spiritual level as well. A change of environment + pony befriendment will not help a pony at this stage (unless that pony happens to be of spiritual help.) They will have developed additional anxiety disorders not just related to social situations. Because of their strong existential (and possibly other) anxiety, their minds have abandoned the hope that somepony special exists who can fulfill their unlikely fantasies, and they now question (spiritually and fundamentally-speaking) whether or not somepony is even capable of doing anything for them at all. Instead of thinking a whole lot about friendship, their thoughts become occupied by more important spiritual matters. Only spiritually-advanced ponies are capable of befriending a pony at this stage.

In the fifth and final stage of isolation, while they have come to develop a thorough understanding of the workings of friendship through thought and the cultivation of self-knowledge, a pony ceases to have any desire for friendship whatsoever. They come to accept themselves and their shit-tier reality for exactly what it is. Much of their previous anxieties resolve themselves naturally or they cease to be a problem anymore. A pony at this stage can be befriended by almost anypony, as a pony who has undergone the Total Isolation process no longer has any need or desire for friendship.

What stage are you? Thoughts?

Roommates So I have a roommate... her name is Trixie. She is a very kind, nice, and considerate pony. *happy trotting noises*

Or, um... well - sort of. *nervously clops hoofs together*

You see. *pauses and looks around shyly and then whispers* I was sleeping tonight and she came in to go to sleep and woke me up like she always does (I kind of expect it.) *looks warmly down at the floor and slightly to the right, gently shuffling a hoof*

What? *surprised* You think that is bad? No - it's fine. I don't mind, really. I mean, I have been wanting to try to get back to a regular sleep schedule lately - and almsot did! *excited hoof noises*, *sober hoof noises* but as long as I eventually get all of my sleep within a 24-hour period, that's good enough, right? *shocked* It doesn't work that way? Oh, well... *shyly shuffles right hoof*

How does it happen, you ask? Usually, she just pops open the door with her hoof and very considerately, only moderately-softly proclaims, "The Great and Powerful Trixie has entered the room!" This usually wakes me up, but I know she is doing it out of kindness. Then she trots over to the bed, hops in, and pulls out her cell phone. As I begin to drift back to sleep, she starts giggling loudly at funny magic tricks she's thinking about adding to her routine. It doesn't bother me, though. I mean, who can help laughing at a funny joke, right? Pinkie Pie makes funny jokes all the time. *nervously clops hooves together*

At least that's what she did tonight. So just as I was drifting off to sleep, she giggled, jolting me out of my sleep again. I tried listening to music on my ponyphone to drown out the noise, but then that just woke me up more, and her giggling continued anyway. So I got out of the closet - *looks at you, surprised* Oh - Why am I sleeping in a closet? Well, I like it. *shyly smiles, glancing up at you* Anyhoof, I get out of the closet and trot by the big bed she is laying in, coming out into the living room.

Having only gotten 2 1/2 hours of sleep, I felt pretty tired and unable to do anything, so I just put my face in my hooves at my desk and relaxed. Oh, and I guess Trixie was a little high on Zecora's magic plants, too, because she was singing and talking and giggling loudly after I left. So it's a good thing I did leave when I did - otherwise, Trixie might not have had so much fun! *yawns*

Anyhoof, I should really learn to be a heavier sleeper. I wonder if I can learn how in pony school! *hopeful eyes* ... *yawns* *falls asleep mid-sentence*

Tabletops Hey, /oat/, let's talk tabletop games, specifically RPGs. For those not in the know, TTRPGs are games like Dungeons & Dragons, but aren't limited to fantasy. There are plenty of systems (what players of TTRPGs call different rulesets) that are set in a whole boatload of different worlds, from the fantasy of D&D, to the cyberpunk of Shadowrun, to the space-traversing grittiness that is Stars Without Number. There's even systems where the core setting is actually a multiverse where all those are true, like GURPS!

The great thing about these is that your creativity and the setting are the only two real limitations to what you can do. Even if what you want doesn't necessarily fit in the rules, the DM can make it fit, and that's part of what makes these games fun.

So, /oat/, do you play any tabletops? If so, what? What sort of characters do you enjoy playing? Are you a DM? What do you DM? Do you homebrew anything?

For those of you who don't play any of these games, would you?

Even if something like the yellow vests would come over here, in the end it would do the likes of me no good. Might as well let the world do it's own thing and I do mine.

Think that's why this show is so popular, I can look at clips from the newer episodes and it's nothing but positive and optimism, there is so little of that now. Think that's why places like this attract so many mentally ill people, it's a bright spot in a rather shitty world.

it's a comics/manga/manhua/sequential images that tell a story thread! hey howdy hey ponychan people, how're you doing? i'm a huge fan of storytelling that requires sequential images, and i realized that apart from /pony/, there's no real place to talk about comics n' shit on ponychan.

so i open up the thread by asking you, dear friends, what comics/comic-y things have you been reading lately?

i'm reading houseki no kuni obviously, and shitfire is the ride INTENSE AS FUCK. other than that, i'm loving this amazing little manga by the guy who did girl on the shore and goodnight punpun called dead dead demons dededede destruction, i started bloom into you finally, and there's a couple more yuri manga lila recc'd to me that i'm reading(one's a kinda horror thing...i forget all of their titles). the yuri shit is all pretty quality, bloom into you being the highlight. like...it's a nursery full of butterflies in my stomach at times. the inio asano manga(the one with all the d's) is...probably my favorite thing inio asano has ever written. it's a story all about coming of age in a world that's constantly saying that it's ending, thanks to the most lowkey alien invasion ever. you get to watch all of these barely teens navigate puberty, difficult feelings and all the usual teen shit but also sometimes alien attacks that are really mundane. it's got a really neato atmosphere, it almost reminds me of british ficiton set durring the blitz, except with vaguely antagonistic b movie aliens(some ships just look like fancy kitchen appliances) instead of v2s.

on the comic side of things, i'm finally reading the incal, east of west and pretty deadly(again). if you haven't read pretty deadly, you fucking need to. yes you, person reading this right now, do yourself a favor and enjoy a visual feast with some solid storytelling.

Hello friends,

Lets have a fun thread and expand our minds. Managed to read this yesterday in addition to homework, know interest in such things is there so I'm doing my part to provide. Great book, gives you a good outline of the morals of the folk, holy days gods as well as a good foundation for the Asatruar mindset. Book actually made me appreciate the god Thor and just what a sacrifice he made to be protector of the gods and Midgard despite being part giant, tl;dr he chose not to be an evil piece of shit and make the world a better place for the good folk of existence.
Also, about to get into summoning the gods, big suprise the author of that book is a huge fan of Julius Evola.

Lets have a civil discussion, choosing /oat because this board has rules.
Curious about the Roman gods, I've often wondered if at one time they were as wild and untamed as the Germanic ones were. Always noticed that through hellenisation tribes like the Etruscians became Romans and well, everything even their gods became civil. Look at Jupiter, Mars, Minerva, they sure as hell remind me of better dressed versions of Wotan, Tyr and Skadi.

The problem with Chewy's style of moderation is that he deletes threads and bans users based on his personal feelings instead of an objective consideration of the site's rules. It becomes apparent by the way that he explains himself to the general public for every deleted thread or ban he commits. Not only is it apparent Chewy is on some self-congratulatory moral crusade; he has to insult our intelligence by opening his mouth about his moderating decisions instead of allowing us to observe that a thread was trashed or someone was banned because they were being a retard. It's so bad that even when he goes anonymous, you can tell who it is because he just can't shut the fuck up.

I have scheduled to take the first of five GED tests next wednesday. I am doing this because I do not have a high school diploma (long story) but I still want to be able to go to college, escape the NEET life etc.

Needless to say, I am anxious as hell about it, despite doing very well on all the prep work and practice tests I have done (pic related). I originally planned to get accomodations (extra breaks, extra time etc.) but the hoops you have to jump through to get those are honestly absurd (the mere guidelines for what they want you to provide for them is 26 pages long.)

Anyone have advice for this/been through this process?

"I Don't Want to Be An Ass, But..." So I have some spinach which I had kept in the freezer for months without using, which was suddenly removed and put in the fridge by one of my roommates without telling me.

I had originally put it in the freezer because I had found it at a good price, not having any money and predicting I wouldn't have much for a while, bought a bunch and stored it in the freezer for future use. Note that it wasn't taking up more than my share of freezer space, as that was the only item I kept in there.

Today, it was suddenly and without consent removed - I overheard him saying "I don't want to be an ass, but..." (telltale sign that what they are doing is an asshole-ish thing to do.)

I heard him ask my bf if he had talked to me about it, and having said no, he removed the spinach suddenly anyway, without any notice - indicating that he didn't care what my response was going to be. #Triggered #DadLite

Anyhoof, it's not about the spinanch - it's just depressing that 10 months into living with these ponies, and my relationship with them is basically the same as when I started. If I had even a remote relationship with this pony who removed the spinach from the freezer without my consent, he would have mentioned it at least once a long time ago...

I guess I'm doomed to forever be alone, even among others.

As part of my New Year's Resolution, I'm going to mentally and emotionally withdraw from my two roommates, and exert energy towards seeing them and classifying them as assholes. Furthermore, the one pony who likes me shall also be classified as an asshole for good measure.

Am I doing it right?

Had a rather uncharacteristic nightmare last night, even though I hardly ever dream at all (that I remember).

After rope solo climbing down into a pit or shaft of some kind, I proceeded to enact bloody vengeance against some group for something (I don't remember who or why), manipulating them to turn against each other and then finishing off the survivors, then going on the run as a fugitive, joining a tour group along some body of water, then jumping in and swimming to Russia. After climbing out of the water in a waterfront park or zoo or something, I was waiting in line for something when a Yakuza boss (in Russia for some reason) picked my pocket and stole my phone and wallet. I beat him up with a chair, but since I was on the run, I let him live and keep them. Later, the Yakuza caught up to me and I was forced to dress up as Santa Claus and take part in a Final Fantasy 7 LARP event, alongside another Santa guy who had been forced to participate in many such events for a long time. That's all I remember.

You might be thinking "that's so cool" but it was definitely a nightmare. The desperate feeling of being wronged and hunted and committing very callous violence was disturbing.

Toilet Paper So it was recently brought to my attention that not everyone puts used toilet paper in the trash can, and many of these people are apparently horrified by those who do, making claims that it is a "health hazard," going so far as to say that the practice would result in eviction (for those living in an apartment.)

While there is no argument that flushing used toilet paper down the toilet after you go to the bathroom is ideal under ideal circumstances (and is what I did when I was at college, due to their powerful flushing systems), the standard bathroom does not have a toilet that operates under ideal conditions.

Toilets today are designed (for ill-conceived of reasons) to conserve water, and with this conservation of water, comes an increased risk of the toilet getting clogged after going to the bathroom. Without any additional toilet paper in the toilet, and without tracking actual numbers, I estimate the toilet I use regularly to have between a 1:5 to 1:3 chance of getting clogged after I use it. If you add the toilet paper I use on top of that (up to 1/2 a roll), the rate increases dramatically. And from experience, I know that when a toilet gets clogged from using too much toilet paper, it is difficult to plunge.

This means that there is a high probability of the toilet getting clogged after I use it and put toilet paper in it on top of my shit. So I have several options:

1. I can reduce my toilet paper consumption. The consequences of this would be smelly hands and resultant increased hand-washing, and a painful, unclean butt.

2. I can ignore the increase in clogging and difficulty of unclogging, and just expect to plunge my shit every time I go to the bathroom. The cons of this are it's unhygienic, wastes water, is disgusting, and wastes time.

3. I can stack the toilet paper off to the side as I wipe my ass, flushing my shit first, then the toilet paper second. Considering that I would literally be temporarily storing shit for future transport (and the mechanics of that), I find this option disgusting.

4. I can continue to neatly (face-down) throw my shit away in the trash, and change the trash bags regularly.

5. I can continue to neatly (face-down) throw my shit away in the trash, but use a separate bag for it, sealing it off when I exit the bathroom. The trash would be changed regularly.

What do you do?

Would you prefer to throw your shit away if you had to plunge the toilet every time? What about once every other time? What if it was really difficult to plunge? What is your limit?

Are people who use so little toilet paper that they can flush it down modern toilets without consequence disgusting for basically wiping their ass with their bare hand, and then walking around with shit between their legs all day?

Today marks 50 years since many of the most important aspects of modern computers were unveiled. And that was even before ARPANET.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mother_of_All_Demos

In particular, the computer mouse and "windows"-style GUI. Famously, Xerox got the rights to them but failed to appreciate it and licensed it to the young upstart Apple in exchange for some Apple stock (though legends persist to this day that Steve Jobs saw the demo and outright stole the idea, reverse-engineering it from a demo disk). In any case, the young upstart Micro-Soft went on to release their own Windows-GUI, leading to accusations of stealing the concept from Apple or outright reverse-engineering their code.

However you may only travel back in time, not forwards-

And whatever time and place you travel back to you will have to live their for at least a week before your watch will be recharged enough for a trip back to now.

I believe in you, /oat/. Stop feeling sorry for yourself.

Stop moping around and acting like a little bitch all of the time.

And walk with your shoulders straight and your head up high, and believe you are a winner.

Life will get better if you treat yourself better. And If you don't from here on out...well, then I guess you deserve all the bad you're afflicted with, because you did it to yourself.

You're the man. Start fucking acting like it.
