So you would you be bothered if this board had more direction? If it had something like /pol/ has current events or /v/ has new games being released? A driving force is what I was referring to.



It wouldn't stop me from coming every day. I have no qualms with "like /b/ but not full of little shits", but I'm definitely not leaving either way.

What sort of direction would we take as a board, you think?

Well, I like it here, and I like you. So take that.

Maybe we should just try harder to have interactive threads. Threads like the "make a friend/contact info" thread ( >>32457 ) or that game time thread ( >>32848 ) seem to be the stronger performers.

also, we're probably all too polite to get in each other's way by making a thread

Yeah, those threads are good examples.

Used to make daily threads last year. Nothing fancy like those two, just random questions. Might start again at a slower pace, and shill a bit. We'll see.

I like you, too, friend. We should make sweet threads together some time.

I'm so afraid to die, I love living, and I never want to stop. I love being kind and helpful to others, I love being around people, I never want that to ever end. How do I deal with this? I just can't stand the thought of being in non existence.

Also if you've had any near death experiences, I'd love you to share them.

Well my whole life is a near death experience…

I know I have a deathly disease but I can´t tell anyone because I´m not capable to pay for treatment…

Basically I live everyday knowing that my body can fail and shut down in an instant…

I´m 21 still go to college and could die any second…

I´ve come to accept it like it is nothing…


I don't plan on dying. Aging will be cured in my life time, so it's all good.


File: 09cec734099d84d⋯.jpg (182.84 KB, 640x480, 4:3, traditional[1].jpg)

I have mild hydrophobia that I generally keep hidden just to keep life a little simpler, and once one of my friends pushed my into his pool. I don't think he meant to push me in, just shoulder past me like an asshole on the subway, but I wasn't paying attention, so it launched me over the edge. He had one of those endless swimming pool things as well, which complicated matters.

If you aren't familiar, it works like a treadmill for a pool. A device sits at one end of the pool and pushes water past you, that you can swim into.

I have no idea how long I was underwater, or how I got out. I remember tumbling around in the artificial riptide for a minute, then I "woke up" on the lawn. I imagine that at some point my lizard brain kicked on, ejected my conscious brain, and doggypaddled my ass out of the pool, but the only thing I really remember is how fucking painful drowning was.


May I ask what you have?

Death is fine. I'm more bothered by the idea of aging.


The concept of dying never bothered me. Some people describe a specific moment where they realized their mortality, but for me it was something I always knew and was content with. I find it bizarre that I haven't killed myself yet. If you knew me, you would have never expected me to live this long. That's probably due to me having poor access to any suitable means of doing so. As of now, I am passive on the issue. I wouldn't care if I die, but I don't actively seek to do so either. I probably will someday, but for now I'm focusing on my goals. Even if I die before reaching them, it wouldn't matter, since I'll be dead. I don't have a real connection to this world. I don't like myself nor anyone else on it. I don't even like the world itself. I don't like my own mind, body, and soul. I see filth and imperfection everywhere, and I know that besides this transient pleasure, there isn't any purpose to living.

How honest are you, /kind/? How often do you lie, and why do you do it? Are little white lies OK? For example, would you lie about someone's cooking so they don't feel bad? Is that the /kind/ thing to do? What about a lie of omission. Do they even count as lies?

>How honest are you, /kind/?

I'm often honest with my opinions, although I'd also be vague at the same time to not say too much until I can trust other(s) enough to speak more.

>How often do you lie, and why do you do it?

I often lie in order to avoid stirrups, troubles or being nosed by others.

>Are little white lies OK?

Most of the time, white lies don't really harm anybody, and I do that during conversations with others (a bad habit I guess). I would however, avoid lies altogether if I'm in heavier situations.

>For example, would you lie about someone's cooking so they don't feel bad?

Depends on how well they've cooked. I would be honest, but at the same time encourage them to keep on trying.

>Is that the /kind/ thing to do?

Honesty may be one of the most /kind/ things to do when it comes to human interaction. Brutal, crude and pessimistic honesty is something I wouldn't do though. I try my best to be honest, realistic and optimistic.

>What about a lie of omission. Do they even count as lies?

Depends on the situation. Lies like that would be terrible in events when an actual objectification is needed, like scientific reports.

I don't lie to other people that often, mainly because I don't speak to other people that much so I don't need to lie. Unless you count that as lying by omission of course. I don't tell people the truth about my political opinions though, mainly because I don't want to get harassed for my opinions and I am too much of an autistic sperg to sell it to people so I just shut up.

More often though, I lie to myself. If I told the truth, or rather unearthed it within myself, I wouldn't be able to get up in the mornings. I deceive myself into being enjoying college or whatever crap I'm working on out of necessity rather than actual enjoyment.


File: bca29c719d25a2c⋯.jpg (866.31 KB, 1600x1126, 800:563, 34576243_p1.jpg)


I'm in the same boat for the same reasons, more or less. Some degree of dishonesty is completely essential to protect my existence.

I also feel the same way you do when horrible events are on the news. In an ideal world these things wouldn't happen, but this is so far from an ideal world that I just don't give a fuck. The people who died were probably horrible people anyway. It's not a good way to feel, but it's a natural consequence of depression.

Personally, I'd like to be honest at all times, holding very few secrets, and those of the sort that do not come up, rather than having to lie about them.

Unfortunately, I noticed myself being dishonest from time to time. When I notice it, I do my best to rectify it, and come clean to the person I am being dishonest to. I take telling the truth very seriously, because I used to be a huge liar in my youth. I no longer wish to have that be the case.

Tsundere. Unless you need a psycho girl to protect you for some awful reason, yandere's not what it's cracked up to be by its devotees. When you're a kissless virgin, it's easy to underestimate how annoyingly clingy a girl can be. Imagine a frustrated yandere girl turning on you and saying to the effect that they all say they want a yandere but none of them including you actually want (i.e. are equipped or can handle) a yandere. A tsundere is cute and has comparatively less drawbacks.


File: 231e65dce2439d8⋯.jpg (273.5 KB, 1920x1080, 16:9, 1414317652294.jpg)


Yandere is scary, tsundere is cute. Easy choice.



I'm too weak to handle tsun. I'll honestly think she has no interest in me and is being a bully.

A yandere on the other hand will literally be throwing herself on me. I doubt I'd be able to say no to that.

If a lot of anons are honest with themselves they'd admit that they'd end up with the yandere.



The question is posed as one of ideals. I'm sure yandere girls exist IRL that are not just batshit crazy (because there are plenty of those) but also closely hew to the anime/manga stereotype. Of course I agree with you that most anons being relatively passive would need to be pursuef and would find themselves falling into the arms of an overzealously clingy girl quite easily. I would be more than happy with a toned done yandere that wouldn't aggressively, emphasis on aggressively, act on her threats of bloody murder. One of my favorites is Hex Maniac; she's a real qt.



>yandere girls exist IRL that are not just batshit crazy

They don't. I've been with yandere girls many times and >>33977 gets it. It can be extremely suffocating, to say the VERY least.

Hey there, /kind/! Was wondering if you guys could recommend me some particularly cathartic anime. I'm aware there's a /kind/ recommends thread, and an anime thread, but I figured it'd be easier if I just made a thread about the specific anime type I want. (or maybe I should've just posted this in one of the other existing threads, if so, sorry. No one was posting in those threads.)

I've seen Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Cowboy Bebop, and Welcome to the NHK, and I would consider those cathartic, the rest I've seen haven't been that much. Oh, I'm cool with anything genre wise, by the way. Thanks, I appreciate it!

I have actually seen this one with a good friend of mine, and it wasn't my thing. Which sucks. I think a huge turn off is a lot of the main characters felt kind of emotionless. (or maybe I'm just used to over exaggerated mannerisms?}


Oh, dude! I am so sorry, I forgot to mention FLCL in the shows I've watched. That show was pretty great, but I never really considered it feelsy. i guess everyone feels to different material.

I want to thank everyone for participating in the thread so far, these are some wonderful recommendations and I will do my best to check these all out.

It sucks, but it's my only shot at getting a job and earning income. Can't be /kind/ if I starve to death can I?


I live in a third world hellhole where there's no food, no medicines, no security, is the most dangerous place in the world and also the place with the most inflation in the whole world.

No matter how many goals or resolutions I make I won't be able to accomplish them not because I don't want to but because my situation doesn't allow it.

I'd kill myself to be free of this miserable life but I'm too much of a pussy to do it.

Seeing all the people from here that come from first world places but aren't doing anything with their life makes me feel both anger and jealousy because they have all the chances in the world to make anything in their life which I don't have but instead decide to waste them and squander them but even them it doesn't matter to them because they are still able to lead cushy lives with no effort and worry.

Someone help me…

Being /kind/ means doing things for others, but don't we do that just to feel better about ourselves?

If we didn't feel good about ourselves by doing something /kind/, we wouldn't do that in the first place.

Would we?

Don't listen to these spooks OP

Kindness is born out of a self-arisen desire to be kind. I am here because kindness is pleasing to me. Anybody who says otherwise is either trying to sell you something or has been spooked into thinking that selfishness and altruism are antithetical (they aren't).


We must direct our will to do what is good, because it pleases us. Shape yourself to be good.



>Noticing a pattern here. I pity you for not knowing what love is.

I am in love, anon. But I am in love for me.



Also, this sort of goes without saying but, you offer no counter-argument

>But this is simply not possible

There are bad deals in the world. Where one party is met with significant gain and the other is met with significant loss. If I make a risky deal with a business partner where they end up gaining money and I lose just as much. That deal was at my expense regardless of what I thought I would gain prior to the deal. Without equivalent exchange there is an expense. An act of kindness without a reasonable equivalent exchange is altruism.


You seem to be assuming all rewards are equivalent, I don't. That's the difference here. Losing your life and all that existence has to offer to save someone else's isn't an equivalent exchange regardless of reward or byproduct.

>if there is no motivation

There is obviously a motative. That's not in depute here. Assumptions about specific motives or types of motives and how they are being determined is

If you aren't willing to sacrifice everything, and take on their suffering as your own then I wouldn't say that's any kind of actual love.


>What's /kind/s opinion on love?

I don't know. ;_;



yeah, i'm with this guy

considering how my life turned out, the idea of being in love and share my life with another person looks like something so alien to me that i'm not even emotionally attached to it
