  1. I'm officially 18

    Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life.
  2. Tim Hortons and Bitcoin Megathread

    That's funny, I don't recall being asked if I agreed to be barred from entering fenced-off private property or barred from directly sharing in the usage of resource-rich land so some business could exploit it for themselves. I also don't recall being asked to participate in a this thing called an "industrial economy" where I have to work for such businesses (or the government that serves them for that matter) in order to accumulate made-up tokens to buy a part of their exploits because they claimed the land for themselves alone. It seems that some force is indeed necessary in order to maintain private ownership and businesses that you seem to treasure so much.
  3. What's the fuck up with my neighbors and friends

    They're communist spies, that's what's clearly up.


    All I know is that we need more Kotos. #KotoForNon-AlignedMovementSecretaryGeneralBecauseScrewTheUNAndItsSecurityCouncil
  6. Things that you hate! v2

    On the bright side you get +5 on interior design skills.
  7. Zaush in some hot water again

    Accusations and assumptions flying around, furries deliver again.
  8. Tim Hortons and Bitcoin Megathread

    For some reason I can't be bothered making a wall of text to explain things like diminishing returns or resources. Forget it.
  9. Just stuff

    Sorry, that was in poor taste. I'm actually surprised that no one has yet posted something along the lines of you've got it so good, there are others in worse situations, pull up your socks, etc. Those seem to be the standard replies to such posts in other forums. As for the future you describe, it is not inevitable. You don't have to force yourself to live that long provided you know what you're doing. There's always the risk of dying or getting incapacitated early but that is a risk that everyone has to bear. If you're concerned about that get legal advice about writing up a will and also instructions to follow in case you wind up in a condition where you can't legally make decisions for yourself. Take the following with a grain of salt, it's based on my own experience and discussion with others with various views and does not constitute "professional" psychological advice: I'm sure you've already talked to others and received responses urging you to continue living regardless of your circumstances or your own reasons for killing yourself. I'm also assuming that you know that if you blab too much to the wrong people you'll likely get imprisoned and possibly drugged against your will. IMO this decision should always rest on the individual and not on the society intent on keeping the individual as a consumer/taxpayer/worker/etc, provided that the individual carefully considers their options and isn't acting on delusions (eg hallucinations or misinformation) or as a knee-jerk response. Carefully consider what to do with your life and beware of the biases in others in either urging you to live or die; make the decision for yourself alone.

    Sounds like the people involved need to find out what is actually going on, otherwise we get all sorts of assumptions and accusations flying around and needless drama being generated because of that. Then again it is the furry community we're talking about.

    @BattlechiliFreedom of speech is indeed important. That also means that people should be free to express both negative and positive discussion about taboo subjects, even if it means occasionally yelling at people like Zaush. AFAIK Zaush isn't in legal trouble as there's no proof that he uses actual CP in the process of creating his stuff whether art or stories. It is understandable though that many would be suspicious of him given his field and his comments and voicing that suspicion also comes under freedom of speech. Unless people try to burn him at the stake or engage in libel (eg claiming he views CP without proof) they should be free to voice their opinion of him and talk about his activities that are publicly known. I don't know about violence, but I do know that Tetris causes excessive bricklaying. Behold ;V

    With depression it's always the concrete overpasses that suffer the most ;(((((((((((
  13. Tim Hortons and Bitcoin Megathread

    The distrust is warranted to a degree. Too bad the world economy is weighed down by real problems (eg diminishing returns, high levels of interdependence, increasing systemic costs such as pollution and aging infrastructure) that won't go away even if a sizable percentage switch to bitcoin or some other currency. I suppose a major part of people's reactions to the way the world economy is going is that it is human nature to blame other humans for just about everything, rather than looking at impersonal forces like diminishing returns or finite resources.

    The funny thing is there might be some actual use for a record-keeping system consisting of blocks of content with a cryptographic hash of the previous block along with some metadata. That being said the amount of hype around what is essentially a record-keeping system is insane. It'd be easier to take it seriously if there weren't so many vocal believers attaching messianic hope to it, mostly thanks to cryptocurrency mania.
  15. Fuck this stupid fucking Statistics fucking class

    Forgot about KS, yep it's great for some types of projects ;3
