If you mean type, probably grass or steel, probably as part of some subconscious reverence to my favorite gym leader and master respectively. As for individuals, I honestly wouldn't know what to say. I haven't actually played Pokemon past the third gen, although I enjoyed those first three a good deal.

>>14, what's your favorite hour of the day?
14 Name: Anonymous : 2013-08-13 07:52
>>13
I'd have to say 10pm is my favorite hour. Every night at/around 10pm I go into a night time mode by turning on my desk lamp and enjoying a nice cup of tea (in the winter I drink hot cocoa instead). It calms me down quite a bit and I enjoy the lighting much better because it's more focused to where I'm sitting in my room. 10pm marks the time I start winding down for the night and end my day, so I'll just browse the internet, play some games, or watch anime until I'm tired enough to go to bed.

Hey >>15-san, what is your favorite kind of weapon (guns, swords, lightsabers, etc), and why?

Artillery because it's intimidating and it has great, uh, impact? I'm not great at explaining why I like things.

Vines, creeping plants, anything you'd see going up old brick. Just looks wonderful.

To >>18: What's your favorite kind of setting for a story, in any sort of media?
18 Name: Anonymous : 2013-08-20 16:36
Well >>18-san, probably a peaceful after-the-end-of-the-world thing. Not something with the entire worlds life destroyed, but more like a clean slate for humanity type of deal. Think Sora No Woto, or YKK. Haha, what a predictable answer for a Post Office user.

>>19-san, what is your favorite word that does not translate into English? Or just does not have an equal English translation.

my favourite non-English word is "komorebi". It's Japanese and it describes "sunlight that filters though the leaves of trees".

Halloween. I have so many fond memories: the leaves changing; a slight chill in the air. I usually spend the day with friends if I can and stay up late watching horror movies or reading scary stories.

>>25-san, what is your favorite book?

Really old and big trees, that kids climb on. They may even nail boards to the tree to sit on or grab unto, but the tree doesn't care because his branches are so thick.
When I was young, me and my friends had a tree like that in our neighbourhood and we would climb it and play there every day.

probably my family's trip to Disney World every two years. I've been going since I was one, and I love it more every time we go.

The beach by far! Going to the beach is relaxing, energizing, inspiring and so many other things!
That softly strong smell, it is nostalgic even at the first time. That myriad of sounds all flowing right into our ears. The sand, don't forget about the sand! Soft, crunchy and comfortable. And then there is the sea, the often-ally we visit but cannot settle with, that loves us but lives her in own freedom.

Hello friend >>41, what is your favorite discontinued food?
41 Name: Paperplane : 2019-05-12 07:25
>>40
It's kinda niche but in a local grocery chain they used to sell vanilla (and chocolate) pudding in small plastic cups but they made it all fluffy by adding whipped cream to it. Ususally you find pudding with a layer of whipped cream on top but this brand mixed it into the pudding which gave it a really enjoyable texture and taste compared to the more liduiqd/gooey regular pudding.
I loved to eat those as a kid after lunch/dinner. But now looking for them I can't find them anymore and I think they discontinued it.

English. As a non native speaker but having everything from music to video games to basically the whole internet in English was a great motivator to learn it and I was always ahead with my vocabulary since e.g. fantasy RPGs teach you words you'd never learn at school. So I got good grades with persnal gain but without perceived effort.

LSD: Dream Emulator. I'm not a big vidya guy, but I've always thought that video games have a lot of potential to be used as art, but almost never use it for that purpose.

My significant other got me big a book that has most of Lovecraft's stories in it. It was compiled by a scholar who also wrote lots of annotations into the texts which give lots of background info about Names, language, Lovecraft himself etc. Sometimes with pictures of Lovecraft's hand written letters/notes and photographs of actual places mentioned or alluded to in the stories. On top of that, this huge tome has a really nice design which makes it look like some old warlock's spellbook or so.
The best thing is, she gifted me it without any special reason, just because she knows I would like it.

I would have to say among insects, I most prefer the dragonfly. Not only do they prey on mosquitoes, but they are also a good indictator that the ecology of the surrounding environment is low in toxins, because their nymphs need very clean water. Moreover, they have that lovely sheen to their carapace

What's your favorite childhood memory?
86 Name: Paperplane : 2019-06-11 14:45

Exellent choice of insect. Just yesterday read about them and didn't know that they are predators that also hunt mosquitoes.

My favourite childhood memory is probably one of several of me and my best friend playing pretend during elementary school times. At first we didn't like each other but during a field trip we walked next to each other by accident and after talking noticed that we have more in common than expected and thus a great friendship unfolded.
We met always daily and pretended to be knights and wizards by swinging sticks around. It was at the timt the LOTR movies aired so we imagined our sticks to be swords and that we were fighting against orcs and othee monsters. We imagined whole storylines complete with "NPCs", recurring places, quests, rewards etc. and after playtime was over, we met the next day and continued where we left off yesterday. Star Wars, LOTR, Zelda and Secret/Sword of Mana were major inspirations for our "games" and we kinda made a mish mash out of all of these.
I miss having such vivid imagination. In my mind I was really standing there on a battlefield and the stick really was a sword. This friend was also the only one I could do this with because all my other friends lacked interest/imagination so the whole thing will always have a special place in my heart.
Sometimes when we were fed up with one "game" we just started anew, starting as the unlikely heros of a village until fighting our way to be knights with our own keeps and servants.

I guess having such an affinity for play pretend paved the way for my current affiliation with TTRPGs like D&D and stuff.

Licorice. While it's really popular in my country, I just can't get enough of it. I love just about every variety there is.

Now, "allsorts licorice" isn't licorice at all. Salty or 'salmiak' licorice is the real deal. There's also sweet variants, half-winegum-half-licorice stuff and for the real licorice lover? There's laurel licorice that tastes really intense.

If you've never eaten licorice? You totally should. There's a licorice for everyone out there. Try starting with something sweet first. If you're ever in the Netherlands? Try "autodrop" as that's fairly beginner friendly.

He's not very hard to discover, but I think my favorite director currently is David Lynch. I have had a film buff friend for quite a while who has repeatedly told me to watch his works, but they didn't click for me until the latest season of Twin Peaks. There is something really magical in it (especially Dougie Jones' saga), and it made me get into the rest of his catalogue more seriously.

How is it an exploit if it is part of the design. And lack of balance produces a different balance, the balance of luck and knowledge of unbalanced strategies and attempting to find out which bullshit strategy is better than other bullshit strategy.

That offers much more emotion and passion into gameplay than anything else.

So everyone just sports the most OP stuff and it becomes bland and boring soon since there's only one or few favourable playstyles despite there being theoretically many more that just get outclassed because of bad design.

Nice get. Well, you have to play and watch couple of videos on HoMM3 or Might and Magic series, or early TES to see what kind of enjoyment.

It does not really matter for competetive but in my opinion any competetive community is either burning pile of garbage or a comfy profest (but just for pros in that competetive game).

Life is a dream, and there is no such thing as death. We are one conscioussness experiencing itself subjectively. Might as well enjoy the ride.

But the most awesome place I've ever visted was a friends home long ago. It was so nice and exactly my aesthetic. I wish I could describe the feeling it gave me.

Split first place between how the air smells, the mood outside, and how it's the most comfortable time of the year temperature-wise. Really heat sensitive, spend summer drenched, and in winter it's so annoying having to regulate the clothing so much. Loads of clothing to be comfortable outside, take a bunch off when getting on the bus, take it all on again when getting off, etc.

i listen to animal collective albums pretty regularly every year. Usually in winter, when I'm less busy, and more introspective. Although they were great when I first heard then, I've now also got a lot of memories of these albums--there's a bit of sentimental meaning to it for me. Most recently it was Feels and Person Pitch.

>>123
What's your favourite memory of playing MMORPG games?
123 Name: Anonymous : 2019-10-26 03:23
That one battle in tank of worlds, where me and my boi were the only ones left alive about 3 (three) minutes into the battle. So we've got to a defensible position and stood ass to ass fighting off the reds. We scored 11 frags, on 2 IS-4's, 2014, were killed by relocated arty.
Also that one battle where I raped the reds for literally over 9k damage on M26, ran out of ammo and we've lost.

124 Name: Anonymous : 2019-10-29 17:03

Maybe it's not the most pleasant album, but I think "The Caretaker - Everywhere at the end of Time" is one of the most interesting albums I've listened to in quite a long time. It's a bit of an existential crisis though, it's also six hours long if you take it as a whole.

Only ever played "The Legend of Zelda" (the NES classics GBA remake) and "Zelda II: The Adventure of Link" (also the GBA remake). I quite enjoyed the former, but absolutely did not take any pleasure in playing the latter, so I'd go with "The Legend of Zelda". Never even finished it, though.

Sorry for giving the obvious answer but that's gotta be Japan. Unfortunately we postponed our trip there and are instead going to NZ which of course will be greaty too but Japan is on top of my list.
As for countries visited: Croatia was the best one so far. The proximity of mountains and the sea and the nature in the back lands (or rather how different it was from the coast side) was awesome. If you like nature and hiking you should go there. Also the Krkra warerfalls are beautiful. There's a unique chemical composition in the water there that fossilizes everything that falls into the water really fast.

Coming home from work because then wherever my cat is, he comes to greet me. I guess he knows the sound of my car's engine already because he's always coming out of some shrubbery or the neighbor's garden whenever I come home.
Then we go inside together and I sit down on the couch and pet him while I tell him about my day and he tells me about his day (or so).

An untitled piece I have hanging in my room. I found it at a pawn shop for $1. It was painted on a small canvas and didn't have a frame, and the owner couldn't remember how he got it. It depicts a field in late autumn with a lonely little fence running through it. I have no idea who painted it or when, but I love it nonetheless.

My favourite poem is T.S. Eliot's The Hollow Men. It's a bit of a mainstream choice I suppose. But for some reason, some of the images just keep occurring to me again and again. The final section especially. It's always felt relevant to my life, ever since I read it. It's a bit long to post the whole thing, so I'll just copy a few of my favourite lines:

Waking alone
At the hour when we are
Trembling with tenderness
Lips that would kiss
Form prayers to broken stone.
