>>2807 I'm thankful for this thread OP.
I'm thankful of having a job that I can do at home , it's not too hard and still allows me to play video games quite a few hours a day. Thankful of being able to eat pretty much whatever I want whenever I want. Thankful of having an internet connection to watch anime/videos whenever I want to. And thankful of having this nice board to have a comfy time whenever I feel like it.
I just thought how nice it wood be if people here were thankful for all the comfy stuff they've got. And here's this thread. Was a right thing to make it. I'm thankful for staying at home in these hard times without losing my income. For having enough funds to keep the flat warm. There's a lot more, of course.
Thank you for this thread, OP. >I have a job that's easy, pays decently, I can do it from home, and allows me time to play vidya >I have access to healthy food >My family is decent >I dont live in a dangerous area and I take walks at night
There's too many things to list.

>>2982 >feng shui As tacky and new age as it sounds (unconscious) feng shui is something that has disappeared in architecture leading to buildings that have bad flow and navigation to them and don't feel comfortable to walk through because of it. Eberrything now is just designed to have necessities and not fall in on itself. >brutalism For me when brutalism tries to be artistic or attractive it makes it even more soulless because of it's pretention and insult to things that are artistic and attractive. Glass buildings and that French noveua architecture (see Lisbon and Finland) I also find ugly, minimalism seems to never look good for architecture. >>2997 >>2999 His art style reminds me of another artist who drew similar paintings except they had a mood of foreboding and depression. Someone compared it to the last episode of Tehxnolyze. >People always make it sound like it's architects forcing it on the public. The architect is not merely a pawn, he is an artist too and will sometimes try to sell something, something being an art style or genre.
>>2999 >"architecture for retards" type of book for someone with almost zero knowledge? A tough question, i read a ton back in the day but never an introductory text as i didn't find it necessary for my case. I heard a lot about a famous one, A History of Architecture by Banister Fletcher Sr. and Jr., supposedly it was the best you could get for pre-modern architecture in the old days, i think there's two versions with the latter ones being the resumed student's ones. It doesn't touch upon the modernist movements, which were and still are a whole 'nother story in terms of theory, so it's good for that but it does lack some stuff like a bunch of pre-hispanic architecture because back then there wasn't a lot of evidence surrounding it, the comprehensive studies happened until the 50's and eberryone who wanted to know about the ruins had to go there personally. This book is from the berry late 1890's with a revision around the mid-20's. Beware, it's a big book with around 1300+ pages, so if you want a shorter one then i don't know what to say, i can check and/or ask and get you some names but in terms of zero2hero lectures i think the massive acclaim that book has is probably justified. An obligatory writer for scrub-level students is the famous Francis Ching, or Frank Chink like eberrybody says, he wrote tons of introductory texts regarding the craft so probably he has one for history. And yes he has, it seems it's called A Global History of Architecture, that one is 800+ pages which is abnormally large for him but he's a relaxed read, i wood say he's probably your best bet and if you somehow want more he has other reads, the conceptual Form, Space, and Order is a modern classic for which he's known for so maybe that could be a second read, although also long-winded. Architecture is a highly mischievous field due to its denizens and performers but the art & craft itself is greatly rewarding, i woodn't take it too seriously and if i knew back then i woodn't even touch it professionally, it sucks the soul out of you which isn't comfy at all. A happy architect is as rare as a sober construction worker.

Midnight Drinks & Snacks Anonymous 09/22/2019 (Sun) 07:54:55 No.734 [Reply] [Last]
There is nothing more comfy than midnight coffee with a light snack during some nightly watching or playing. I prefer quick sandwiches so it's usually honeyed and buttered toast, PB&J/PB&H, or bean toast.

Post Parables, Allegories, Fables, Koans Anon 04/30/2020 (Thu) 19:51:55 No.531 [Reply] [Last]
When my mind is troubled, I make a little story in my head to simplify my situation. When I share them with others, I never explicitly state the moral so they can take away their own. It's a very comfy thing for me, it's how I express myself like some people do with poetry or doodles. I think if more people made a habit or practice of it the world would be a comfier place. If any of you do something similar, or would like to try it, I'd love to hear what you have to say. Here's a little story I've been rolling around in my skull for a few years now: A long time ago, a man built a brick wall in a wild field. Those who walked past it would often say, "look at this great symbol of order in a disorderly world!" Many years passed, and the wall crumbled to a scarcely recognizable pile of rubble. Passerby would shake their heads and frown at the sight. "No matter how men may labor to assemble some comforting order, nature will work ten times as hard for ten times as long to return it to disorder. How tragic!" As the wall finally turned to dust, the earth sighed. How nice it felt to become that much more neat and round.
>>531 It might have been a while since you made this post but I have to say that that's a neat story Anon.
Hacker Koans became a source of educational humor among programmers: >A student was playing a handheld video game during a class. >The teacher called on the student and asked him what he was doing. The student replied that he was trying to master the game. >The teacher said, "There exists a state in which you will not attempt to master the game, and the game will not attempt to master you." >The student asked, "What is this state?" >The teacher said, "Give me your video game, and I will show you." >The student gave him the game, and the teacher threw it to the ground, breaking it into pieces. The student was enlightened.
A novice of the temple once approached the Master Programmer with a question: “Master, does Emacs have the Buddha nature?” the novice asked. The Master Programmer had been in the temple for many years and could be relied upon to know these things. He thought for several minutes before replying: “I don’t see why not. It’s bloody well got eberrything else.”
>>531 That as indeed s pretty cool story
>>531 The reason that the mind becomes agitated easily is because of the “gunk” that we have in our minds. All this “gunk” is there due to greed, hate, and ignorance. A calm mind can be compared to a clear, calm lake that made the surroundings serene. That lake could become undesirable, an eyesore, if one or more of the following happens. (i) A dark-colored dye is in water, (ii) The lake has boiling water, (iii) Water is covered with moss, (iv) Lake is perturbed by wind, (v) Water is turbid and muddy. Extreme sensual desire is like a dark dye. The attraction for something becomes so strong that one’s complete attention is on that. The mind can lose any control over what is sensible and what is not rational (or immoral). Extreme hate is like boiling water. We all have seen people who are so enraged that they are out-of-control. As for a "frozen" mind represented by moss covering the water, sleepiness shows just a symptom of a dull and inactive mind not exposed to dhamma. Then there's restlessness and brooding arising from high-mindedness (like from being "drunk" with power, money, etc) and low-mindedness. In most cases, because of the high-mindedness, one tends to DO lowly things suitable even for an animal. Either way leads to a scattered mind incapable of seeing right from wrong. Finally we have the tendency to do stupid things because of the ignorance of the true nature of the world. For example, the tendency to do immoral actions to get what one wants because this person doesn't know nor care about the adverse consequences of such activities.
