I've had shit jobs so far, manual labour like warehouse work and fast food. The warehouse work was hell since I had no training and I was thrown into it despite the job listing being a retail one dealing with customers instead of being carted off to an industrial estate lifting Christmas trees for 12 hours a day. Thankfully they eventually dropped me after a week when I refused to do that again and wanted to actually do the job that was advertised.

The fast food job isn't as bad but the one I work at is owned by a husband and wife who cut corners in everything, and I'm pretty sure they embezzle money. It doesn't help that I live in a shitty council estate and so we have to deal with absolute scum, although they seem to have an aversion to dealing with me for some reason. My co-workers are mostly nice people, which makes me feel bad because I can't relate to them at all and they always invite me to parties and nights out. In the 3 years I've worked there I've been out with them once and it was exhausting for me.

I just want a job where I don't have to deal with anyone face-to-face anymore and I can be a shut-in. I don't think I want to be a NEET again since I felt worse then. I could blame a whole host of things for my situation but if I'm really honest it's because I'm terminally lazy. I have a degree but I settle for being at the bottom because it seems like less work and I hate unfamiliar things. I'm going to try to get some career advice in the next couple of weeks. I have an idea of what I want, it's just getting there that's the problem.

Er, this is probably a longer response than you were expecting.

Sounds like government work. I'm just starting my job, but every time I think about how great the hours are and how relaxed the work seems I get an equal and opposite feeling when I realize I'm a second-degree thief taking tax money.

Touhou 6, 7, and 8 were a kind of rebirth of the series, and the first games released on Windows. They introduce most of the current popular characters, and their difficulty is relatively low. It's an excellent beginner's trilogy before you move on further into the series.

1 through 5 are prior to a timeskip that happens because of plot reasons at the end of 5. They set up the basics of the setting and establish a few character relationships (Marisa was originally a boss, not a playable character), but they're largely non-essential and only a very few characters from it make popular appearances elsewhere.

No.35007

Oh, minor correction. The finale of 5 is why there's a system called Spell Card Rules that everyone seems aware of in the later games.

It's like the Geneva Convention and Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty rolled into one, because the collateral on gods getting into shin-kicking contests is pretty severe for mortal races.

So I went on Wikipedia, looked at their list of birds native to my country and started making flashcard with pictures in Anki.

Let's make a /kind/ recommended chart!

Let's pick anime, video games, books and movies that we consider to be /kind/ and make a chart out of it.

A few rules:

>The things we pick should be /kind/ in nature, so generally things that will make others feel better.

>Making people see the problems that they face is also /kind/ but it shouldn't be done in a very heavy handed way. If you want to put something sad on this list, it should also be cathartic and hopeful. It should also end well or at least with a bitter-sweet ending that is more sweet than bitter

>Put in as much happy stuff as possible!

>Nothing too dark or creepy please, this is not the place for dark stuff Unless we're talking cute-dark or cute-creepy, then it's completely okay

The main character is very bitter, but he's also a /kind/ person, I think. He hates shallowness and cruelty, but since he's only a kid, he doesn't really know what to do with his feelings, and the book is mainly a "bildungsroman" about him struggling to come to terms with the world. But it's very open-ended, and what you take out of it largely depends on what kind of person you are.

I doubt he's particularly kind. You don't get to the top in politics without stabbing a few people in the back and stepping on a few heads. Russia's laws certainly aren't what I would describe as "kind", although the same is true of basically every country on Earth.

Post three things you are optimistic about. Bonus points for explaining why! Arguing will get you three months in the Shame Cube.

I'll start:

-Scientific progress in slowing / reversing DNA damage that comes with age: https://scienceofsingularity.com/2017/03/30/jeff-bezos-mayo-clinic-back-anti-aging-startup-unity-biotechnology-for-116-million/

I love watching the world I was born into slowly turn upside down, as everything we thought was so far away rushes closer to us. Falling into our grasp. It makes me feel closer to everyone else, somehow. People on this site love to doomsay, but I think, despite recent setbacks, reason is going to win over corruption once we realize what we can accomplish.

-We may have nice robot friends soon!

-I have better, healthier relationships with my friends than I have ever had before.

He predictably had an awful lot of generic meme qualities attributed to him like the virgin birth, death and resurrection and the flying into space at the end bits though.

Like, why is god so boring and un-creative that he had to do things that people already believed others had done for like hundreds of years before and did them in a way that there was no stronger reason to believe one story over the other aside from lots of people believing it after it was made a state religion which is just an argument for following islam too.

No one is exactly like anyone else, but when you apply all the same generic magical acts to one guy that have also been attributed to many others their life and words are going to be different, but the arguments for why they are so magical specials are still the same sort of deal.

It's because Jesus's story is a meta story. It's a story of stories; the type of story that resonated with people 's soul. It's why such a story will be found in multiple cultures.

He is an amalgamation of all good qualities. He is an abstract representation of such a perfectly good and virtuous human being that he simply must be divine.

His resurrection shows that he must be greater than an ordinary man and must therefore be divine. It represents the immorality of his story and to the story's meaning and message. It's also a signifier to our own personal journey towards betterment or to the divine. To become a better person, often the old self must perish. And that such a transformation is often very painful and tortuous.

His crucifixion shows us, that even the best man can be treated cruelly and that a divine man will bear it all and never give way to despair, anger or hate.

I've been a hikki for about 5 years now. My friends have all left to start their own lives while I hang around not doing anything. I tried college but I ran away, as I did with many thing in my life since I was a young boy. I even tried to find love, it ended rather badly. I'm a coward, all my life I ran away from life, I had no friends, I did poorly in school and didn't care, and never really did anything worthwhile. It's a lonely and sad life, being a hermit shut off from society. I feel like dirt everyday and just have this pit of despair in my heart that is always lingering with me. And the worst part is I think my parents blame themselves, my Dad in particular because he was busy fighting in the Iraq War to raise me to be a man. It just kills me inside that they still care about me, because it makes me feel even more like human garbage.

Sorry if I was being too melodramatic, I just wanted to air it out.

>Do we have any hikikomori on /kind/?

Yes

>For how long have you been one?

Six years

>How're things with your family?

They turned a blind eye up until recently and now they care for my future

>Do you at least go out to get something to eat and if yes how often?

I did not go outside to eat at all for the first four years but these past two years I've tried going with them to dinners when I can.

>Do you ever get money to spend on things you like through the internet like figures or dakis, and if yes how much?

I get christmas and b-day money but I haven't bought any dakis or figures. I made about $450 from selling all my wow gold months after WoD launch so I regret not selling it when I quit in 2014. I spent about$200 from the \$450 on starlight stage.

>So do you have any will or desire to leave such life?

I fell into this lifestyle because I was weak and afraid when I was eighteen. I know I can change; I just need to stop being afraid .

>Do we have any hikikomori on /kind/?

Neet, shut in but not to the point I can't leave my room and house, rather I have zero reason to do so.

>For how long have you been one?

A total of 4.5 years in the last 6 years.

>How're things with your family?

I see my extended family so sparsely they still think im in college or something, heh. Nuclear family has given up on me being normal, they just want me to get whatever job or something to distract my mind.

>Do you at least go out to get something to eat and if yes how often?

Every 7 days I go out for cigarrettes, cookies and whatever junk food I want.

>Do you ever get money to spend on things you like through the internet like figures or dakis, and if yes how much?

No, the above money is from past small jobs. Also used to buy and sell crap on ebay and craiglist. Im about to run out of money again ;_;

>So you have any good or desire to leave such life?

There are so many things wrong with my life, strangely I don't think this is one of them because im not exactly impaired, I just have zero motivation. Since the alternative is being a wageslave I dunno, I think no I don't want to leave this lifestyle. There has to be something else. There is nothing wrong with it anyway other than being broke as fuck.
