It's a shame that shipposting seems to be frowned upon here, I think ships can certainly be /comfy/.

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.

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.
>>1844 I lol'd. >>531 The head monk was meditating when a layman barged into the temple. "Father, your disciple is blocking the path" The layman and the head monk went out of the temple and sure enough - his disciple was lying on his back on the path. "I understand the teachings. I have become the path." The head monk stepped on his disciple, "This path feels a bit springy," and jumped up and down.

There once was a young man who, as a child, had a great deal of hope and naive dreams of his contribution to the world. He fantasized of leading mankind to colonize the stars, he fantasized of being a great and mighty warrior, sword and shield in hand, and he fantasized of being a simple farmer working tirelessly on his crops. But fantasy was all he had, and he could not adjust to reality. So he, unconsciously, chose to drown his woes in purposelessness, gluttony and sloth, which wood only drive him deeper into his fantasies. There, however, he wood find the truth, hidden away among the deep recesses where Fantasy met Reality. He became Enlightened as to the nature of things, and found a tiny piece of hope to hold on to. He began having hope, and by praying to his matron, he found some degree of success. Now, he stands at a crossroads, where his Fantasy-Truth now must combat Reality, which itself is breaking down into Fantasy.

Why does the world have to be so cruel to us? I just wanna have fun and post with anons in peace but they keep deplatforming us, smearing us, running fed ops against us etc. Even if the webring becomes a stable home now, we've lost so many anons and communities over the years that'll never come back. 8chan has no clear successor which caused anons to be splintered far and wide around the internet with little ways to get back together again. I remember back on 8chan in around 2015, on the board list the top 50 boards each had hundreds and hundreds of users and tons of activity. Now no boards outside of /cow/, /v/ and /a/ seem to have any significant userbase left and you can easily go days or weeks without one post on many of them. Basically the question is: How do we bring back the golden days? Can things ever go back to how they were?

>>3548 Oh definitely, I'll see how to remedy this. I'll start taking drawing classes this saturday, since I did try to learn in may last year but can't do Gesture Drawing. I just don't know how to get friends, maybe I'm just too cold.
>>3552 Have you considered joining some sort of club? Your drawing class might have some options to collaborate with other people. I joined a private gym a couple of years ago and we all get together to go out to eat, one of the members helped me find a car as well. The nature of a club having a shared activity makes starting conversations much easier.
>>3235 Why do people use discord? Does it have any benefits over Mumble/Tox/Matrix/whatever, other than network effect?
>>3570 Instant belonging into a community where eberryone is interested in the same things as you. And you can be anonymous and change identities like changing hats. Whereas in social media you are expected to show your face and the chans are impersonal where no one are friends and reddit is mob rule by upvotes while Discord can ban any type of behavior and can be semi-private. Discord also puts adults in contact with children which is the other reason why its popular. Many scandals. Stay away.

What were the chances i was born as a human? Seriously, i could have been a dog, a bat or a simple fly, but somehow by chance, i was brought into existence as a Homo Sapien given the gift of bittersweet self awareness, life itself is an amazing phenomenon already but life that is able question its own existence and feel all these terrible yet beautiful emotions with just nothing but chemical reactions and electrical firing currents of neurons is on a whole other level, it is no wonder that people believe that there is a higher and deeper structure to the Human consciousness, that this is no random process and that we were destined, chosen and created by some higher being. And to add to another layer of chance and luck i was born in the UK, a first world country, where starvation and war are foreign concepts, i could have been some poor Negro bastard in Africa, An Arab in the middle east, or a poor Asian slaving away in the sweatshops, but i was born here, sure things are still not perfect, this place still has many flaws, dead end 9-5 jobs are common and people lay on their death beads with regrets, that life no longer holds meaning, but it is not as much of a Hell as the others, at least for the time being, and to add yet another layer of chance/luck, i was born into an era where technology and science is advancing at an astonishing rate and Human suffering, at least at the material level, is becoming less and less, although we are facing the challenges of depression and suicide due to the lack of meaning to life now, it is the mental suffering that will plague us in this new era for the time being, but even then it is still an amazing time to be alive, i could have been born a peasant in the middle ages, dying at 30, or even a cave man where eberry day is a struggle, where i wood have had to risk my life constantly just to get a meal to stay alive and keep experiencing. It is just, an amazing feeling, it is so surreal at times.
>>3556 but here i am in the 21st century where never before seen marvels are happening, sure i will never know the glory of Rome, or the ancient Egyptian civilizations, or the Ancient Greeks/Spartans, Chinese, Japanese, Persians, the simple life of tribes in Africa, pre-colonial america etc, i will have never witnessed first hand the major historical events of world history such as the french revolution, the american war of Independence, the crusades, the industrial revolution, the Renaissance, the first and second great wars, the cold war etc, and although these were glorious and terrible yet exciting eras of Humanity i am witnessing the most glorious and perhaps terrible but never the less exciting era yet, and although i am witnessing it as but a humble nobody, a middle to lower class citizen, my luck ran out there, i was never born a famous celebrity or great man, but even then, even though i am but a nobody, if i live my normal lifespan, i will have witnessed perhaps the most glorious and perhaps terrible yet exciting era of the our species yet, this is an unprecedented time, we are on the verge of the technological singularity where our salvation or doom lies, We are on the verge if expanding among the stars, we are on the verge of becoming godlike beings or our extinction and both are exhilarating thoughts, to think i, we could be witnessing the final chapter of our species and the beginning of the new or a new greater chapter for our species is some feeling, i am witnessing, we are witnessing probably the most important moment in Human history so far, what were the chances of me, of you arriving here? What were the trucking chances my God, it is amazing, and it is terrifying.
>>3557 And i will be there until my death, whether i live for thousands of years or die tomorrow where the raging fires of Hell, the bliss of heaven, the greys of Limbo, the warrior's of Valhalla, a reincarnation towards another life, the void of nothingness awaits, or if i am to roam the earth and the universe as a ghost/spirit., witnessing wonders and nightmares, it's beautiful, life is indescribable whether you are a religious fanatic (Muslim, Hindu, Buddhists , Christian, trucking Jews "perhaps the same as evil to some"), a hardcore materialist atheist, An artist, a scientist, Male, Female, truck it why not? other, a Communist, a Fascist, a National Socialist, an idiot, a genius, black, White, Asian, Evil, degenerate, a drug addict/an explorer of psychedelics, righteous, Super A.I., aliens, gods, the God,a humble animal, perhaps even just a cell, we are all witnesses of our own life and this era, we are all experiencing this thing called existence, whether it is just us or if there are extraterrestrial and higher godlike beings that are there experiencing it along with us,here is hoping that we may contact them, as we embark on this journey,with our friends and families, and strangers, with those that we fell out with long ago, with those that stayed with us until the end, with our trucking bullies and enemies, and oh man, it is something when you stop and think about it for a while, all i, we can really do and should do is improve ourselves. It is just, an astronomical thing to witness, if this is true reality or just a simulation, that we are all just the universe and existence essentially experiencing itself.
This is spam btw Don't waste your time.
>>3556 0% chance. You were born human because it is your dharma to be a human. /thread

"Come on, Snickers. Time for our walk." He throws himself in the tub, resolute in his act of defiance. Sara calls after him in her usual lackluster way. On occasion, she is forced to re-establish dominance by these little wars of attrition, in which she most often plays the role of unmovable object, her eventual victory achieved through the boredom of her misbehaved pet. "Okay, that's enough. Come on." Her tone sounds vaguely impatient. Snickers drones her out with a stultified howl. The dreams are back again. He suddenly remembers. Just the night before, while in a deep slumber, there came an ancient memory from the hind regions of the beast's mind. Now, in the tub, the dream's recollection appears to him in a cloudburst of sensation. Twilight silhouettes of shady woodland, deer in silver moonlight -- a breathless chase through clearing and undergrowth, rich crimson rewards of victory -- the scent of a she-wolf, dangerous and dark as night, beckoning to join her in the mists of the forest... The visions fade and the tub reappears. Sara is getting the squirt bottle. Snickers gives in and pulls himself out of the tub, feigning apology and submission. Sara clamps a metal choke-collar around his neck and attaches the leash. After their half-mile walk, Snickers eats his dry kibble and lays down in his bed by the sofa. The tinny noise of the television rattles in his ears, as he watches a fly bump into the window, trying helplessly to escape. Eventually, malaise sets in and he drifts off to sleep. No dreams tonight.

Happy New Years' Eve /comfy/. Thanks a lot for the comfy times and may the next year be much much much better than this one. In the meantime you can post your goals for the next year. I will finally go back to college and get that Compsci degree after zigzagging and going nowhere all these last years. My goal is to actively participate in it and get to finish the first year of the career.

For now I just uploaded my gnu/linux config files and as I started using that meme window manager - dwm and other suckless tools recently I also need to somehow get into branches so that I can easily revert back when I install some buggy patches. So that link might be helpful. https://git-scm.com/book/ I read some of this, but it's pretty long for a beginning I guess side effect is it will be easier to learn programming if I'm already familiar with all this software

12 posts and 3 images omitted.
sat in one of those chinese rebranded gaming chairs for years until it just wasn't usable and i had back pain, went to a surplus store and got a $100 ish certa chair, it's pretty good for the price and if you're in that price range, i'd go for it, but there are a lot of really nice chairs in the $300+ range sorry for the essay :P
>>3323 Don't be sorry, I like reading anon's essays.
No. It's one of those fake leather executive chairs with minimal adjustability. The height is wrong and the pleather makes extended sessions on the chair into an unconformable and sweaty experience. Better than the Ikea dining chair I used to use.
>>3525 That said, once corona lets up and second hand chairs are available at a reasonable price I'll grab an ergonomic office chair. Looking forward to the comfy.
