How do you feel about the ocean/large bodies of water? Have you seen them or spent time swimming in them? Personally I've only ever seen an ocean from an airplane so I don't count it.
It's something I'd like to experience one day, but at the same time it kind of freaks me out to not have land beneath me. Nature shows and even video games really make underwater areas seem so cool to explore, like an alien world. It's a shame we need a bunch of equipment to do it since it's not our natural environment.

I live in the Western Hemisphere. So keep that in mind, I put aside US$1.5K for a vacation and Myanmar was one of my favorite budget destinations. This is off the table, for obvious reasons. Do you have any recommendations for vacays around that price point? Im thinking Devon, England next summer.

Any of you gone to Nippon post-covid? Can you still do a couple of weeks there for about $2k all-in? What's the process like for entering the country now? Do I have to show proof of vax?

Ideally, I'd like to spend like $6k all-in and come home with a big haul of stuff. But I mainly plan on going mostly to visit some temples and the national parks. I only plan on spending maybe three days in Tokyo all together. Tokyo doesn't even interest me that much because I've heard how bad Akiba has gotten lately. I'm mainly going to say I went there.

There used to be some good anon guides for planning this trip but they haven't been updated in years. Considering the cost of food in my country doubled in the last year or two I'm expecting a trip to the other side of the world has as well.

NTA. Looks like I might actually be able to go somewhere now. I hadn't even personally thought about doing any kind of travel since 2020 and all of that needed to be done in order to board a plane.

There are some people who just keep going forever, but most will regularly give you a turn. You can use that to cut their meandering thoughts short with a concise summary of what they're trying to say and forcibly move on to the next point. When you handle the same conversations over and over again you get a feel for how they're structured and can progress them faster. I tried speedrunning calls on a help desk and cut my average call time to under 5 minutes before I got in trouble for being too efficient and went back to letting people talk for as long as they wanted because I was paid by the hour.

A youtuber I like is doing a survey on how people categorize the Mario games, in preparation for a followup to another video he already made on the subject, https://youtu.be/XejJ6PzPtEw?si=CIkpaXzp9Htcvphs

He wanted people to reach out to others so he could get answers from outside his audience, and I figured this would be the sort of thing Kissu would be interested in. Here's the link if you want to take it. Be warned that it's very long, because basically everything that's remotely related to Mario and technically counts as a game is on it.

It's near-freezing outside and I brought out my heated mattress pad. I opened the window to make the room nice and cold and turned on the mattress pad. Once I get so cold that I start to lose dexterity in my fingers I'm going to almost (but not entirely) close the window and then hop in bed and play some video games.

Always think it'd be a pretty cool experience to go and visit, and unlike other nations Japan seems to be fairly safe versus any other nation I could possibly tour (or even compared to cities near me).

I think I'd want to explore Akihabara, and maybe get a lot of souvenirs while there. Also as a food lover I'd have to try out a bunch of different restaurants while there. Maybe if I could plan it well I'd go during Comiket to actually be present for one, feels like it'd be a really nice experience.

(This thread is partially in response to some of the posts in https://kissu.moe/qa/thread/115066)
The way people look at civilization collapse, especially internet people, is a gross simplification of the way things actually work. Honestly, the term "collapse" itself bothers me, because it encourages that sort of thinking.

Civilizations don't fall apart over night. The most famous example of civilization collapse, the collapse of the Western Roman Empire, was a slow, incremental process, much longer than a single life time, and by the time it had fully died it might as well have already been dead. It's paramount to an old man in bad health dying of a heart attack; it's sad, but everyone knew it was going to happen sooner or later, and so they were prepared for it.

And to be clear, I get that a modern collapse would probably be a bigger deal than the collapses of yesteryear. We're more dependent on our infrastructure now than we've ever been, and our infrastructure is more dependant on technology now than its ever been. Things are definitely going to be different without them. But the process itself is still a gradual one; gradual enough to give people time to adjust to the new normal as it developes. We're not going to turn into Mad Max where we're all scrounging for resources and killing each other any time soon, and it's most certainly not going to happen over night unless there's a nuclear holocaust or something.

The Western Roman Empire isn't really a good example of a societal collapse.
Because society did not collapse, it was the empire that did and in that collapsed a period of turmoil ensued that had Germanic tribes marauding around the empire causing havoc, taking over areas and setting down. But even then, it was not as bad as people make it out to be, even during these times society still functioned, it was not completely destroyed.

A better example would be the Bronze Age collapse.

But still I don't see it ever happening to us.

 No.2518

The Roman Empire didn't collapse in a day, but villages on its frontier did. That's what people are really afraid of: that they'll be on the front lines of change. Only instead of famines and barbarians, we worry about rising sea levels and nuclear strikes.

>>2516
We have. Humanity has survived at least one full on ice age and came out more widespread than ever. Both the third century crisis and the bronze age collapse were caused in part by climate events that sparked food shortages and mass migrations. Desertification has caused regions like north Africa and the middle east to be much less fertile than they were 2000 years ago. The only thing that's new is that we think we can stop it from happening this time. Actually, that's not new either, it's just that we've switched from praying for salvation and atoning for our sins to sorting the recyclables and counting carbon emissions which will probably be at least somewhat more effective.
