The most dangerous people in the world are the ones who are smart enough to identify problems, but dumb enough that their "solutions" just end up causing more problems.
Even more dangerous are the people who want to create a problem to sell the solution.
What's the worst is when the two groups meet.
I remember someone posting a while ago, probably more than a few months ago, maybe even a year ago, about some philosopher (?) who claimed that artists, authors, and creatives in general only make the world a worse place by bringing their depravity into the world leading to further decay. I really want to read more about this, but my searches keep getting stumped by the torrent of results about "torturing/suffering artists"...
Sound like just another variation of rejection of culture.
watched a video about "plant inefficiency" in regards to photosynthesis, basically talking about how sometimes plants bind to O2 instead of CO2, which causes them to need to use more energy to workably use that O2 for energy, but then went on to mention that it could be possible to genetically engineer plants to not do this. I think it would be an ironic end to humanity if we end up genetically modifying plants to use more CO2, only to induce global cooling and kill off a bunch of plant life, or some other similarly catastrophic event unfolds because of our meddling with biology.
hmm. someone pointed something out that I hadn't considered: older CRT displays with long persistence phosphors allowed for lower refresh rates (such as 50Hz) because the long image persistence reduced flicker, at the trade-off of ghosting. Albeit a different mechanism for why ghosting happens, I wonder if that's why LCDs have pretty much stuck to 60Hz, compared to 75Hz like with CRTs -- although "smeary" at lower refresh rates, maybe this disadvantage prevents flicker?
We just need to find the perfect balance between freezing the earth and melting it and we're good.
The baseline intelligence for humans is pretty low, relatively speaking. That's not to say the general masses are dumb, they're just not meant for our time.
Working is stressful.
heard there was some huge thing over the 18+ animation this character was in and checked it out and there was nothing at all to it that makes it better than any other western porn animation
it had nice music though
love sageru but sometimes worry about people missing out on the nice conversations in there because they're sleeping or something
On slow boards you have more time to make less posts.
>>618>I think kissu could be way faster if everyone shared that mindset or had as little reservations towards the board as they do IRC.
Certainly it could, but I think a lot of people are very turned off by "chatroom generals", and would probably shun a "chatroom imageboard" too. Sure there's liveboards, but those are pretty different in how they work since posts sort of accumulate and grow.
True. I think the artificial qualifiers that "/qa/ is for series, /jp/ is stupid, and seasonal is for everything inbetween" just makes people less inclined to make the sorts of semi-serious posts that otherwise end up on #qa. A lot of the time I just post about things I'm doing and then people comment or ask about it. There's never really any one point where beforehand I could've thought, "this would make an interesting thread" because the very nature of it is that it's spontaneous and not always worth replying to.
I know a couple people on #qa refuse to use imageboards, while at least one just uses ota so it's not entirely missed kissu activity. It would be nice if they posted on kissu, but it's just the way it is.
Well, and Canada is dumb so any loli stuff has to happen there.
"shouganai" never really helps anything, I still stand by if kissu is too big to ignore they'll have to come around to post
Good, IRC posters should stay on IRC.
I've been doing simple things irl alone that feel productive and growing more tired of the social aspect of the internet. Imageboards are leisure websites like social media. People there care about celebrities or whatever and we discuss other trivial things like IRC vs IBs, you might say is different because there is no like/voting system but the social aspect remains in the form of the consensus, like how anons hate vtubers here. Now I'm more aversive about opening some websites because I don't enjoy them as much as I used to and find the discussions of no consequence to my life. I don't mean to be condescending, this is just how I feel, very distanced from it. And no, I don't watch vtubers, I find them trivial as well but the negativity around it is a bore.
The average grown person shouldn't eat more than six to eight teaspoons of sugar per day. Which means that if I put four teaspoons in the entire amount of coffeepots of a day, I already have used up half the allowed amount. But the real danger knows hiding itself well, by which I mean the sweeteners in various processed foods. I conclude, it's a luxury to drink a big(400ml) cup of tea with one or two teaspoons of sugar in it, it's always better to have a big bottle of water within reach.
too old and ambitious for imageboards
just realized that you can drag the sidebar open on youtube.
