What are some moments which clearly express when an author's given up?

For some reason, no


It's folk wisdom that stressed animals' meat goes bad, but maybe it reverses when the meat has already been processed at the point of stressing.


It's not folk wisdom. Stressed animals, just like humans, release stress hormones like cortisol into the blood. Whether it makes the meat "bad" or not, I'm not so sure about.


Well, it would be folk stupidity. Anyway, the word is it makes meat stringent, and everything that comes with it including less palatable taste.


Besides, it's not always "bad" in folklore anyhow. See: Chinese people rousing up snakes with a caged mongoose before eating them.

Technology is just modern magic

And programmers modern wizards.


File:1434549860246.jpg (35.88 KB,300x300)

Well, in a way technology did kill them. Education and mass communication coupled with photography took away so many mysteries from life.
Some people still fight against it, though. I'm reminded of an image from some "ghost hunter" idiot saying that you need to use the old radios to hear them. It escapes his thinking process that the modern ones don't work because they don't have as much interference that can be misinterpreted.


Sure, but what if they need the interference to communicate?

That's not what I mean. Individual kanji usually don't form words by themselves. You shouldn't think of kanji as words but rather as parts of words. Not only that, but you can't put the parts together however you want


File:[ANE] Denpa Onna to Seishu….png (2.56 MB,1920x1080)

Hiragana is really, really easy. It shouldn't take anyone more than a couple days. Have you tried just writing them all and memorizing them


I am just a couple of days in that paper was made on my third day on duolingo.


If you really want to learn Japanese, Duolingo isn't the best way to do it. Sure, it may be fine for learning the kana, but literally anything is fine for learning kana. It's just a site/app for weebs to waste their money (does it have payments?) on before finally realizing they don't really want to learn Japanese.
Here, have this: https://itazuraneko.neocities.org/learn/guide.html


File:Dunning-Kruger-Effect-en.png (50.09 KB,721x600)

Duolingo is actually free, and it's good for practice, but there are better options. All you really need is the following:
- Anki
- Dictionary (Jisho.org)
- 2-3 grammar books (Tae Kim, DoJG, etc.)
- Tons and tons of untranslated content (anything you find interesting)
- Google.co.jp (for looking up references and memes)

After you learn the kana and grammar, it's honestly just a 1-3 year grind of reading and hearing Japanese every day until you slowly "get it". The Dunning-Kruger effect is overused by people, but it does a great job showing the confidence you have after learning kana and grammar (Mount Stupid) and how it drops once you try to understand real Japanese (Valley of Despair). What matters is that you just keep reading. When you see a new word, always look it up, and if it looks common throw it into your Anki deck. Words will start reappearing and you'll recognize a lot of them, or at least realize you've seen them before. Doing this everyday is what builds your vocabulary - it's that long uphill slope on the way to enlightenment. Japanese has an especially long slope, but it's actually fun once you can read the Japanese internet and watch their videos, and it becomes a habit very quickly. For all beginners, getting to that point should be their priority. I'm no expert, but these habits helped me out a lot, and hopefully the beginner anon can find some use from them as well.

It's the same up until 1000, then they have specific names for ten thousand, one hundred million, and so on. I'm sure you can imagine how much of a mindfuck it is to try to read large numbers in this system for someone who spent their entire life with thousands, millions and billions.


One hundred originally meant 120.


English actually has quite a few non-standard denominations for things. Like score (20), dozen (12), baker's dozen (13), and fortnight (14). Admittedly, a fortnight exclusively refers to an amount of time.


I used to think we should use base-6 or base-12 for their repetitive proprties, but what if one reason we have all this weird advanced math is because we start from mathematically bizarre numbers like 2x5 being the base and 7 being prime? Oh and Pi of course. By the chance of having 10 fingers we practically created an infinite number that occurs all over the place.


I believe fortnight was the set of time Roman watchmen used for a single schedule of guard switches, which also caused some English time-relatd words. Minute or something.

why is everyone so obsessed with gachashit?

could it be a gambling addiction thing?


I've never actually spent money on Gacha games. I think part of the appeal to me is the progress, you are consistently improving your team and trying to acquire characters that bring certain attributes to that team, spending money would make it too easy to acquire the characters you want.


I would actually be excited if they made a /vn/ board next
It could be naivete but I think it would turn out to be fairly decent


A vn board would probably be great, in theory. In practice I doubt it'd be able to take off with 4chan users holding it down. Also it probably won't happen since that'd be a good decision.


Knowing the staff, it would end up being /vn/ - Video Games/Nintendo

Actually most monarchies were benevolent, in the west at least.


That's a low bar for benevolence, just any lack of malevolence. All monarchies have practiced deep negligent indefference without being actively malevolent. So has every living person who has mutual interests with all of his limbs.

hard to say when the last time i saw such a hateable cast was

like mizuhara though she's nice


don't know anything about this anime but reading the post it reminded me of golden time anime, same problem with the norms


Golden Time's characters were at least bearable.


i really don’t know if i can keep watching this show
i want to it seems like a good enough show but I just cant take all the cringe and embarrassment
mami is too evil
main guy too cringe
glasses girl is too i don’t know but she is still too much
this beach episode is only episode 3 and there are still other girls presumable for MC to clumsily lust over


I like it because it's so terrible. It reminds me of watching Tommy Wiseau in The Room. It's fun

sometimes when I get in bed and close my eyes I find myself terrified of falling asleep
is the person who wakes up still me? in falling asleep and losing consciousness do I temporarily die?
I often end up terrified of my own dreams, not because the content of them frightens me but instead because I am not sure what reality I will be brought to, I dont think there is anything more frightening than losing control of your reality

Excellent point. And a bachelor could be a divorcee, making him not married but also not unmarried as in never married. Unless you mean you only become unmarried after someone unmarries you, making ALL "bachelors" divorcees. English especially is completely fubar regarding suffixes like in inflammable and unflammable, as was discovered by one Doctor Nick.

Paraphrasing Jordan Peterson, I don't love the Pole, I just hate the Brits.
