I had a dream about Kirara. She came to my house and I was worried my parents were going to embarrass me, and it was really awkward because they couldn't understand her. She's not even my favorite GJbu, why am I dreaming about her?!

What differentiates between a long thought and a short one? Did you have that in mind when you made this thread? Who are you? What drove you to post this? I wonder how many people browse this board. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one posting here.

(I chose to interpret a long thought as a string of thoughts I saw when reading the thread)

Same time post on /bun/ holy shiiiiiiit
>> No.33537  
I thought this was supposed to be a new short thought thread with a different name because the old one was on autosage or something, but I scrolled down and it was right there. Also I totally forgot I was the OP of that thread
>> No.33544  
That was such a big accomplishment for /bun/, it now needs to rest for a few hours.

I like these threads. I do have an instinctive repulsive reaction to blogging and talking about your own problems on the internet, but for some reason, anonymously and in this particular format, it doesn't bother me as much. I wonder why?

Although, maybe if someone posted something like "Baww, my girlfriend left me" I'd still be bothered. Context matters, I suppose?

I'm in the mood to go to the movies, but I'm also seeing a friend I haven't seen for some time, so I can't see Lez Miserables and His Orchestra. And my friend thinks musicals are gay. This choice sucks.

Recent developments in wearable computing, i.e. Google Glass, makes Dennou Coil come to mind.
The goal of the designers of the wearable computers was to make it easier to connect with other people while still having quick access to technology and information. A noble cause, but the result might turn out to be the opposite. According to people living in Glass epicenter, Silicon Valley, users have a tendency to 'glass out', disconnect from the world around them, turn into real life zombies. A far cry from Dennou Coil's playful techno-utopia.
I don't know if future generations of children are blessed or cursed.

I really wish Counter-Strike 1.6 had an active community again.

How could the Japanese police be so pompous? Not only have they let a pedo serial killer free, they executed an innocent man. Confucianism just needs to die out already.
>> No.57203  
Incompetence of cops is hardly a Japanese phenomenon, but I think in this case it was exacerbated by the asian obsession with "saving face" which wouldn't let them even consider that they got it wrong the first time.

CS:GO isn't terrible...
The gunplay isn't as good as 1.6, everything is spray and pray 2win, but the changes to the pump and the scout are great.

Also, the discovery of sliding physics and surf maps are great.
The loss of ka and kz maps though is a shame, it just doens't work so well outside of CS 1.6

Environmentalism has already failed. Due to the legislation-based approach taken by environmentalists up until about a decade ago, the movement itself became incapable of innovating (The best evidence of this is that the most popular product they came up with is a garbage can that's painted blue). The legislation based approach also meant that a lot of environmentalist content ended up being fear mongering directed at 70 year old American senators, usually on the political left. The political left itself had decided on a strategy based on urban america, and what you end up with is an environmentalist movement whose grassroot members had never gone hunting, and very few would regularly interact with nature. The current state of environmentalism has thus become a mockery if itself - the movement cannot outright announce the fact that it has failed due to political ramifications, despite the fact that it has failed practically every goal it has set out for itself regarding global warming. The grassroot elements of the movement do not realize this, because none of them really interact with nature - all of their information comes from a media that does not see environmentalism as an attention grabbing headline. Allying itself with the political left also hasn't yielded the political results that the legislative arm of the movement would like, with the recent conservative resurgence leading the way to the repeal of numerous laws passed by previous administrations. It's a goddamn shitshow, and this is before getting into the absolutely disgraceful display that environmentalists demonstrate outside of the western hemisphere.
>> No.57585  
The legislation based approach is really the cause of the failure. Take any other movement in history, from the arts to mathematics to penicillin, and the successful movements always come up with a product that can out compete its contemporaries. This is not the case with environmentalism, in the same way that the civil rights movement had never put forth the black man as a superior product to the white man (outside of fringe groups such as black panther/black power/etc). Fifty years later, global temperatures are reaching levels specifically designated by environmentalism as undesirable, and the civil rights movement has settled for a society where all black men are seen as inferiors until they prove that they can act white.
The other approach mentioned, to put forth a superior product capable of competing with its contemporaries, had only taken rise within the last 10 years or so when it comes to environmentalism. Recycled plastic is strictly cheaper than new plastic, and "filler" is now the standard practice as opposed to the exception when it comes to thermoplastic injection molding. Solar energy and electric motorization has also taken great strides forward with the advent of cheap li-ion batteries, looking to out compete gasoline based vehicles from lawnmowers to 18-wheelers. This is strictly a departure from the environmentalism of the 20th century, where CFC replacement products were inferior in every way to CFC and sustainable development was at best a limiter. This will become the new face of environmentalism, not simply because it's effective, but because it really works. The evidence would be that China, of all places, is now a leader in this brand of environmentalism, with the government backing these products at a breakneck pace. This is, of course, in contrast to the environmentalism movement in the United States becoming the boy who cried wolf with its regular declarations of apocalyptic consequences (a reputation that has only done harm to the push for these products in the United States).
