Post an interesting curiosity you have found out

Did you know that this link redirects to the Tsukihime page? I was aware of the meme ever since I started browsing 4chan but I only found out about this recently. I wonder when it was added.

Cyberpunk and near-future settings are pretty neat. One topic that I don't think gets brought up very often is the idea of derelict websites. Cowboy Bepop sort of touched on this idea with the one satellite episode, but that's not really what I mean. The internet as we understand it has gradually progressed through new design phases and the rise of novel platforms for sharing content and interacting with others. I think a really cool topic, then, would be focusing on some sort of "internet archeologist" in some cyberpunk where they gradually uncover the history of the past by following deeper and deeper into long-abandoned areas of internet, coming across all sorts of novel things. I think it could be interesting. A sort of cyberpunk Kino's Journey as the protagonist delves into the history of their now dystopic world through the escapism, journalism, and social media of the past.

6 (six) is the natural number following 5 and preceding 7.
It is a composite number and the smallest perfect number.
6 is the smallest positive integer which is neither a square number nor a prime number.
Six is the second smallest composite number; its proper divisors are 1, 2 and 3.
Six is the only number that is both the sum and the product of three consecutive positive numbers.
Six is a unitary perfect number, a primary pseudoperfect number, a harmonic divisor number and a superior highly composite number, the last to also be a primorial.
6 is the largest of the four all-Harshad numbers.
Six was the number of seconds needed to change kissu... forever

Happy thanksgiving /qa/, post something you're thankfull about
ill go first!


Hagoromo Lala is a 12 year old alien girl from outer space. Even though she's an alien Lala is really cute. Lala has Turquosise hair with highlights, and wears cute clothes like school uniforms. Her cutepoints are her cute loose yellow socks, her cute face and nice expressions, and her sexy alien body. Lala has a good fashion sense for being an alien. She wears stylish yellow things on the ends of her feelers, which is like wearing earings for a human.
Even though she knows Japanese, Lala still makes alien expressions like 'lun~' and 'oyo!' which is very cute and charming. If you want to know 'lun' means 'yep', and 'oyo!' is an expression of surprise I think.

Lala only came to earth to look around, but she soon became best friends with an Earthling, Hikaru. Hikaru is her cute girlfriend who kisses her. Hikaru is very cute and eunthiastic, and makes a good pair with Lala so I'm happy for them. Lala even enrolled in Hikaru's middleschool to learn about human culture, she had trouble at first but she's trying her best everyday especially with Hikaru's help.
One of Lala's qualities is her intelligence. She's only 12 years old and she has to go all by herself through deep space, and has to repair her spaceship and everything. Lala had to learn Japanese, and never even went to school before so learning to catchup to Hikaru in school was very difficult. On Lala's planet you're considered an adult by 12, so she had a lot of responsibility already.

Lala isn't only an alien, but also became a magical girl along with Hikaru. Lala was already the cutest and best, but now she's a magical girl she's even cuter and greater. When she's not studying at school or hanging out with Hikaru she goes into space with her other magical girl friends to fight badguys. Lala keeps the universe safe all the time, which is courageous. Another thing Lala has going for her. Lala is one of the most powerful magical girls in the world, her favorite attack is to shoot lightning out of her feelers. She can also fly, and is super strong and is invincible!

Even though Lala is very humble and understated, she's very important. She's the sole representative of the galaxy spanning Starscape alliance on earth. Sometime in the future I'm sure she'll become a member of the UN. I know she can handle it!

Everyone should be thankful that Lala keeps the world safe with her magical girl powers, but
I am grateful for Lala because she's so cute and charming and makes me happy to see her. Lala is inspirational because she's always trying her best and making a cute smile even when times get tough. If you see Lala she will probably smile at you and go 'oyo!' or 'lun~' even though she has the responsibility of saving the world and learning about earth all the time.

lets celebrete 399 years of thanksgiving, and 2 million years of LALA!!!!!!

Everything seems so messed up. The world keeps getting worse and worse. People are forced into more and more debt in order to get by. Giant companies cut costs, pass them off to consumers, and price gouge all to appease shareholders. People are forced to rent everything they have because it's not financially feasible to own anything anymore. Governments which are supposed to protect its citizens ignore it as they only seek to gain more power for themselves. The only way I see this getting fixed is an economic collapse to restart the system. But that will hurt a lot of people and take generations to recover. I like to think it's not as bad as it seems and my perception is just warped from secluding myself to imageboards most of my life, but every time I look at the real world, it just doesn't seem okay. I hope I'm wrong and everything isn't actually as messed up as I see it, but I'm not too confident in that....

I'm drunk and depressed right now and I don't know why I wrote this but I did. Thanks for reading my blog. Sorry.

Rice Varities

Anyone here knowledgeable with rice varieties? Every time I go to grocery I have a hard time to choose between different varieties.
Currently I've tried Thailand rice and Koshihikari (tried "normal" white rice sold in normal groceries but they taste shitty). I find Thailand rice is pretty dry and easily falls apart if I add too much water, while Koshihikari is very sticky. I also bought a bag of Haenuki today because the tonkatsu bento box I bought in the store claimed to use this and it tasted great. It felt dry, a little sturdy, and not sticky, but I don't know what it will become when I cook it myself.
So which rice variety is your favorite and how much water do you use when cooking?

You are cordially invited to Kissu's two year anniversary Tsukuyomi Moon Phase stream!

We're looking at doing it on the 4th and 11th since it's the closest Friday to the actual anniversary (Dec 1st). Starting time will be my standard stream time of 7PM EST/11 UST, but it could possibly be moved a little if there's enough demand in doing so. It will be 12 or 13 episodes each day, which comes to about 5 hours each.

I'm using my executive powers to announce that Dropout Idol Fruit Tart is being added to the seasonal stream every week!
To catch people up, this Friday at 7PM EST (11 UST/GMT) there will be a mini-marathon of the first six episodes. This does mean the sixth episode will air again during the stream, but I figured six is good if people just want to watch this show and not the seasonal stream itself.

Eyes/eyebrows over hair

This is bothering me a bit in the new Higurashi. Why do animators do it? The original one had transparent hair instead which is okay. The worst thing is that they draw it right sometimes like in the OP or pic related, so why not most of the time as well?
R:32 / I:4
I've been thinking about why we use the real numbers, and why it makes sense to apply them to real life. Most of the properties of real numbers make sense when you apply them to the real world, but one property seems a bit harder to justify: the Archimedean property. It says that for every number, you can find an integer larger than that number. This has the consequence of excluding infinite numbers (numbers bigger than any integer) and infinitesimal numbers (numbers bigger than zero but smaller than any rational number).

Do you think infinitesimal lengths, distances, volumes, or times might exist? We normally describe these with real numbers, which doesn't allow for infinitesimals. But could lengths, distances, volumes, or times have an infinitesimal part that just gets ignored when we describe it with real numbers? And if so, is there any way to find out, or will the infinitesimal part always be too small to measure? And what about infinite lengths, distances, volumes, and times?

Another thing we use real numbers for is probabilities. It kind of does seem that there ought to be infinitesimal probabilities, because there are events that are clearly possible but have been assigned probability zero. For example, if you flip a coin forever, the probability of getting any particular sequence of heads and tails is zero. But clearly you will get some sequence. Is this something that could be understood better by using a number system with infinitesimal numbers?

So you know how in Manzai comedy theres the boke who is the one who drives the routine and sets up a personality for him/herself and the tsukkomi who is the one who engages with the audience, grounds the routine, and provides a foil to the boke to enhance the jokes?
I was thinking that the terms boke and tsukkomi or to shorten it the ぼ and the つ could be used to described shows like Monogatari where Araragi is the tsukkomi to the boke of Hachikuji or Senjougahara, his role in Monogatari is to provide a link between the audience and the boke while also reacting to what the boke says or does in a way the pushes the joke or plot further. This isnt a perfect example but its a character setup i notice alot, i guess self insert shows where the main character actually has a personality

It is, one student said to us, like everybody's wearing a tag around his neck, but it is an article of faith at Webster Groves High that the soccies will inherit the Earth."

It's pretty interesting how the term, "normie," was in use all the way back in the 60s. It's also pretty remarkable that it's meaning is basically the same as it is now. I really like the term, "soccie," too. It describes a further niche that isn't really covered by normie. Namely, it covers popular people, "influencers," celebrities, e-celebs, etc. It fits pretty well. It's a shame there's really no succinct term for the third category. "The fringe" sounds cool, but, "weirdos," is probably the better term. It's a bit derogatory, but it's not biting; it just means you don't fit in as normal.

If anyone's interested, here's the YouTube video that this was taken from:

What's some stuff you vaguely remember?
Yesterday I recalled those pics about characters going to Mexico and getting pregnant, I don't know what was up with that.
