Let's have an index of cool forums, IBs, textboards and so on.

There used to be more traffic but you still get a post now and then. Conversations don't really happen though, which is kinda sad because the environment here is fairly unique for that. You see a blog(ish) post now and then and maybe a reply to that and that's usually it. I still check by a lot but I feel like this place already exhausted itself for me, especially since I read through many of the old threads already so there's barely anything new to discover and the community is almost nonexistent at the moment.

This is why I try to check in only every week or so, so there's a bit to actually catch up on. If only I could keep to that kind of schedule with other websites.. Honestly I think I'd prefer to only come here as long as I could rely on some new stuff to check out every week. So much of the internet feels like just burning time away.

new thread, because the old thread went on for pretty long. on other boards it would have already reached the bump limit.

anyway, share how your day went here!

Nobody's saying rush to marriage, but it doesn't take two years for you and your partner to decide whether you like each other or not. If there's still uncertainty after few months of dating, something ought to be wrong. You don't spend that many weeks, days and hours with a person and not know what you think of them, that simply doesn't happen.[...]

Its clearly not as simple as this. Marriage should not be decided based on the ability to like one another over an irrelevantly short time span. If you are serious about a relationship, it should take a few years to determine if you and your partner's lives are compatible enough to even consider marriage. If you're rushing in to tie someone down based solely on attraction, you're setting yourself up for disillusionment.

One of the things I plan on doing is making a motion activated camera with my raspberry pi. The code doe that part is already out there, however I want to also build a notification system, and a means of deactivating it. I want to put it into my apartment to record video of people if they break in and send me a message in some way telling me so. BUT, I need a way to deactivate it once I'm in the apartment so I'm not recording myself all the time.
This seems VERY cool, I might do it as well. https://www.reddit.com/r/raspberry_pi/comments/681ie1/behold_the_worlds_smallest_raspberry_pi_gaming/dguy2bg/

I'll do pretty much the same as usual, work on my hobbies, go to work and try to learn some things, i did want to get back into scale models though and dioramas but since i lost a lot of my tools and time is limited i'm not keen on dumping my money into that just yet.

What worries you most about life? Share it here. Nobody ever goes on this site so nobody will know. Be as vague or specific as you would like.

I am worried right now that my lack of self-esteem will ultimately get the best of me. That even though I have "faked" my way to acting normal that everybody knows me for what I believe myself to be. A Failure. A Loser. Because of this all the little things get to me. Every mistake amplified. I am getting help, but I sometimes wonder if there is anything worth helping.

I can relate to this incredibly well, the feeling of just not being GOOD at anything just having bits and pieces of a variety of things. I've picked out a few things that I've decided to dump my 30's in as my 20's are spent but it feels so late that it makes me depressed.

Something that worries me more than that though is work and where i'll end[...]

Inspired by Murakami's memoir on running, I went for a long jog along the local river this morning. Not much to look at: greenery on the right, somewhat dirty water on the left. Less trash than I expected. There's a bunch of anise growing here that fills the air with its distinctive scent. A dozen or so people said "hello" back as I passed them, a nice change from the stone-faced city folk I usually encounter.

Inspired by the comfy music thread. What are some of your favorite comfy vidya games?

I personally love Animal Crossing and can't wait for New Horizons.

It hasn't been mentioned here yet but I would highly recommend Sakuna.

That's a great list, I take pride in my knowledge of relatively obscure games but there are so many in there that I have no clue about! The PS1/PS2 era had so many interesting experimental games. Btw Gokujo Boukentai should've been Gokinjo Boukentai.

Not sure if I would call Umihara Kawase iyashi-kei. The visuals, music and general aesthetic? Sure. The gameplay? ...I hope you're really, really good at video games, or have the patience of a saint.

The more of linguistic philosophy I read the more paranoid and scared I become. I feel that my language and the linguistic community I exist is undermining my own mental sovereignty and agency. If what it is possible to talk about, what state of things it is possible to state and what counts as validation for any given claim is determined by the practices of a linguistic community then it seems that someone who is holey rejected from society may become holey unintelligible to the linguistic community, unable to even make sense of his own claim to personhood. Take the position of slavery. Couldn't a linguistic community deem that it is grammatically impossible to attribute personhood to a slave? How about conscious feeling? In some of the old court cases based on slavery, the subject of the case seems almost semantic. Whether, grammatically, a sentence with a subject that is slave can contain a statement of internal experience or an attribution of personhood, promise, kinship, etc. I am afraid I could be shunned from the language, made unintelligible and nonsensical, or that I may be unable to understand the claims of someone already made unintelligible in such a way.

OP somewhat has a point, but seems to be moving towards a strong version of the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis, which is pretty contentious to put it nicely.
4 Name: Anonymous : 2021-05-31 03:56
in your case, there may be a way to be understood. for example, if it is grammatically impossible to attribute personhood to a slave, then you must rely on using ostensive definitions to remain comprehensible to the receiver. that is, one might show that a slave has personhood (even though this is impossible to do so grammatically) by having a slave perform acts that one would ordinarily attribute to personhood. if the receiver understands the intention, then one can discuss about the slave being a person while remaining comprehensible, even though the grammar of the language prevents this from occurring.

Can anyone here break down Linklater's Waking Life properly in detail for an unread layman?
The explanations out there are either too esoteric to grasp or don't seem to give a complete picture.

Does anyone else get real comfy drinking coffee? I don't have fancy equipment, but I've been saving money for an espresso machine. I've been drinking a preground coffee called cafe bustelo. What do you guys drink? How do you drink it?

America sucks because everyone's in a hurry.

Yup. I'm mostly a tea-drinker, but if my mom's just made a pot of coffee I'll drink that instead.
67 Name: Anonymous : 2021-05-29 15:42
Is that really so true? There are countries with slower paces that still manage to have unremarkable coffee. Your food situation has other factors going on that aren't necessarily tied to pace of life.
The other thing I'm surprised about is the fact that despite the notable Italian-American [...]

Let's share links to interesting and elightening articles and documents with each other as we find them!

Keep it free! No paywalls or click-to-buy pages! Thanks!

I'll start with a free .pdf file, a book on Introductory Linguistics!

In my search for witty writers, I came across this index of essays from the late Christopher Hitchens. All links were "x free articles this month", but not hard paywalled so I hope this counts.

Hitchen's The Medals of His Defeats is an brilliant examination of Winston Churchill's legacy and my personal recommendation from this list.
