ITT we solve the question above us [Part 6] (866)

>>200 I know it as Peanuts

>>202 Which is the best Tony Hawk game?

202 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7454 22:07

I'm going to have to go with Tony Hawk's Pro Underwater Basket Weaving VIII.

What is your opinion on nuclear weapons?

203 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7456 16:15

>>202 They should all be launched at the same time.

>>204 What is the first picture you see, when you type "128 123" into google images?

204 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7456 16:40

Without quotes, it's a low resolution profile shot of a photocopier/printer against a white background. With quotes, it's a fairly simple looking blue (I think? I'm colourblind; could be purple) PCB. That reminds me, my brother's the first result if you google "general disapproval of the pope".

Do you believe there is any prejudice in modern society against asexual people?

205 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7456 16:45

>>204 I think so yes, the common person can't seem to comprehend if someone just isn't interested in sex. For example for like 30 years Morrissey always said he wasn't interested in sex, and then that's all he ever gets asked about in interviews.

>>206 Can you appreciate an artist's work even if you think they're a dick themselves?

206 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7456 19:40

I like Steve Albini and he's a giant duck

207 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7458 00:16

>>206 Hayama Miyabi

>>208 Did you like Tetris 2 for the NES?

208 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7458 13:37

>>207 I had a NES but I never played that sorry.

>>209 Do you like Hello Kitty?

209 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7459 18:44

Despite the fact that I'm usually a great fan of anything cute and Japanese, I never really understood the fascination with Hello Kitty.

How do you feel about necromancy?

210 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7460 22:11

>>209 It seems like an extremely dangerous thing to do. What happens when millions of people are brought back to life simultaneously? Also, there are so many people who died that should stay dead. What prevents necromancers from raising such people?

>>211 Should people be required to have a permit before they can have a baby?

211 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7461 02:36

>>210 Yes, unless they're just having it for dinner.

>>212 Am I a horrible person?

212 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7461 13:59

That depends on whether or not your guests realize the meatballs you serve at dinner was, in fact, an unlucky newborn.

Should I pay the library the $70 in fines I owe them, or should I just never borrow any books again?

213 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7461 15:42

>>212 I'd run away, and make more of an effort with your next library.

>>214 Is there a higher inconceivable being above/around/in us?

214 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7461 22:06

>>213 I can't conceive of one.

>>215 Is your refrigerator running?

215 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7463 02:56

>>214 I certainly hope so.

>>216 Headphones or speakers?

216 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7463 06:57

speakers for dub, punk and drone
headphones for everything else

do you love pieton or pietoro?

217 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7480 20:14


D-Do you... love... me?

218 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7480 23:05

>>217 Hell no.

Can you believe this guy?

219 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7481 00:56

That's a rhetorical question, isn't it?

How do I get my piece of shit neighbour to stop being so fucking loud when I'm trying to sleep? Ideally without resorting to passive-aggressive bullshit or just being loud back.

220 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7481 01:10

>>219 fire

>>221 Would you like a glass of water? Drink some now it's never a bad idea to hydrate yourself

221 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7481 14:51

>>220 I just had some pineapple juice, but thank you for your consideration.

>>222 How does it feel being one-third satanic?

222 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7482 21:47

I wouldn't know.

How do you sleep at night?

223 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7482 21:54

Mostly I wait until I'm really tired, then lie down under the covers with my head on a couple of pillows, and then it happens by itself. Pretty easy, all things considered.

What the FUCK is with that hairstyle?

224 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7482 22:33

>>223 I know right, I did it myself again. Sometimes you gamble, and you lose.

>>225 Would wearing sunglasses maybe take attention away from my hairdon't?

225 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7482 22:33

Having too much hair is filthy and it's a pain in the ass. A buzzcut keeps things clean and orderly.

Have you ever played an MMORPG?

226 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7482 22:39

Does Monster Hunter count as an MMORPG?

Does it?

227 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7483 12:46

Is it MMO? Is it an RPG?

What question would you like someone to ask you, and what would your response be?

228 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7483 20:58

>>227 What was your question again?

>>229 What was your question again?

229 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7484 00:02

What question would you like someone to ask you, and what would your response be?

What question would you like someone to ask you, and what would your response be?

230 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7484 01:45

>>229 What was your question again?

>>231 Orange you glad I didn't say banana?

231 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7484 13:19

>>230 Yeah, I'm not a big fan of bananas.

>>232 Would you like a banana right now?

232 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7484 14:52

I had a banana for breakfast. Two bananas in one day is simply too much.

How do you feel about butterflies?

233 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7484 15:38

They are nice.

What other things beside bananas are nice?

234 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7484 15:55

>>233 Mittens.

>>235 What size shoe do you wear?

235 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7484 18:23

9.5 in UK shoe sizes, which according to the internet is 44 in European or 10.5 in American terms.

What other tabs do you currently have open?

236 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7484 20:03

Some YouTube tabs with Summoning songs, NewFapChan, F-list, and my e-mail.

Does Genesis do what Nintendon't?

237 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7485 03:33

In your Dreamcasts.

What's your name, date of birth, and government-issued personal identification number?

238 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7485 16:24

>>237 Ask the NSA. They know more about me than I do.

>>239 Do you know how to do calculus?

239 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7485 17:56

No. But I know trigonometry.
Do you know proper finger placement wen playing multiple strings on a guitar? I can play bass no problem.

240 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7485 18:58

Frankly I'm so inept at anything musical, I'd probably have trouble knowing which way up to hold a guitar.

I know you didn't ask me, but golly gosh I love calculus! Differentiation, integration, multivariable, vector, ODEs, PDEs, fluid dynamics, chaos, I love them all! My life would be so much more dull without calculus.

What skill/talent/esoteric area of knowledge are you particularly proud to possess?

241 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7485 20:06

None whatsoever. I like programming and I'm good at it, but I don't think I'm outstanding if I compare myself to some of my peers on the same field, and that depresses me a bit.

How do you cope with depression?

242 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7486 11:24

When I was clinically depressed, my therapist gave me pills and a book. The pills helped, the book didn't. I also taught myself cognitive behavioural therapy which helped me make a full recovery until I didn't need the pills anymore.

These days, when I'm undergoing lesser bouts of depression, I exercise, make music, cook, marathon watch TV or other things I enjoy that are distracting until I feel better.

Also, don't feel bad about the programming thing, I'm in the same boat.

How many sexual partners have you had?

243 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7486 12:59


Do you think textboards should substitute normal forums?

244 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7487 13:53

From my limited experience I don't think the kind of person who frequents regular forums would fit in in a text board.
I think they can substitute though, in that I would never dream of signing up for a regular forum account in order to talk about things. That would basically mean having a social identity and reputation on the Internet and that makes me uncomfortable. Same kind of reason I'm scared of IRC.
Sorry. I hate it when people think other people care about their personal bothers but feel this was a valid response

Do you think textboards are better or worse than normal forums? Are they even comparable?

245 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7487 14:30

Text boards are better, obviously, since they prioritize content over social status. Anonymity is one of the internet's greatest strengths, trying to put identity back into the internet is going backwards.

That said, the members of a community are much more important than the medium they use to communicate. Normal forums can be better than text boards if they have a small community that shares a specific interest.

Does the internet make you lonely?

246 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7487 23:16

Not really; I make myself lonely, and one of the ways I do this is by spending lots of time on the internet.

How can I become less of a bitter misanthropist?

247 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7487 23:50

>>246 I don't know buddy, once you've realised that humans in general are pretty shitty it's pretty hard to ignore. Maybe make music or art to put the bitterness into a physical expression, go out and meet people and you might meet someone who thinks the same that you could get along with. Does it affect your opinion to know that strangers like me care about you and want you to be happy?

>>248 Does it affect your opinion to know that strangers like me care about you and want you to be happy?

248 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7488 00:03

Not really, that just sounds insincere. It's not like you really know me or anything.

Have you ever watched Zardoz? What did you think of it if so?

249 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7492 00:09

I watched the trailer, and do not feel particularly compelled to watch the film itself.

What are you genuinely most afraid of?

250 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7493 15:19

My mother.

Why is journalism so bad these days?
Newspapers seem to publish almost anything.

251 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7493 21:07

Newspapers? That's so last century. If they suck nowadays it's probably because sensationalism is the only way they keep selling.

What's your favorite "old-fashioned" thing?

252 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7494 00:43

I'm a big fan of reading books. I mean the physical type, made of paper, and often written many decades ago. I'm still amazed at how most people never read more than they absolutely have to.

I also like enka, which, I've been told by a genuine nihonjin, only old people listen to.

How many pictures of yourself would you estimate there to be on the internet?

253 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7494 14:14

I'd say around twenty to twenty-five, most of them taken without my permission.

What's the worst way to die you can think of?

254 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7496 22:06

Failed autoerotic asphyxiation strikes me as simultaneously (fairly) slow, painful, inelegant, meaningless, pathetic and embarrassing. On the other hand, it is - apparently - sexually pleasurable.

If you were given a choice between differential equations and biochemistry, with no context whatsoever, which would you choose?

255 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7496 22:39

I'd choose differential equations. Despite its difficulty, math at that level is one of the most beautiful things I can think of. Biochemistry is certainly not without merit, though. If you're choosing classes for college, it really depends on your major, but I'd still choose diff eq personally (as my chosen major has little to do with biology and lots to do with math).

Who are some of your heroes, and why are they your heroes?

256 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7502 14:27

There's various people I admire for various reasons, but I can't think of many I'd describe as heroes. Well, perhaps one. Long story incoming.

My middle name is István, which is named after my grandfather who lived in Hungary when it was under Soviet occupation. Occasionally, what they'd do is simply close off a street at both ends, let all the women and children out, and send all the able-bodied men to Siberia to work in the coal mines. Not because the people had done anything wrong; just because they needed more labour and, of course, everyone should be grateful to support the motherland and so on. Anyway, that's what happened to poor István. He ended up working in the coal mines for four years, in absolutely appalling conditions. The workers were fed pea soup for every meal for months on end, and had to work in the mines (>30C) whereas above ground it was >-20C. The sudden change in temperature caused quite a number to die of hypothermia/pneumonia/goodness knows what. Most amazing, however, is the fact that at one point he was the only one in his work camp of ~40 people who didn't die of an outbreak of typhoid. He managed to learn enough Russian to be able to speak to and get along with the guards, and, after four years was released back to Hungary. There, he got married, had a few children, and then went and died before I was born. I never even met the guy.

He didn't do anything that amazing; he didn't change the world, or help anyone else particularly, but I respect him for being able to put up with such horrendous treatment and come out on top. I doubt I'd be able to deal with what he went through.

Do you have any particularly interesting relatives?

257 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7505 06:07

My grandfather.

When his kids' Catholic schools sent home warnings about the Satanic Drug-Fueled Rocking And / Or Rolling Music, his reaction was to open charge accounts for my father and aunt at three local music stores.

Upon hearing that an ex-squadmate of his in the Marines (WWII, Pacific Theater) was having trouble, after the war, getting a home loan, he dragged the guy into his bank and barged into the manager's office, demanding that the bank give the guy a loan, with my grandfather as cosigner. They did, despite having turned the guy down twice previously, because "Poor Credit Risk" was, back then and back there, code for "We Don't Lend Money to No Nigras".

Despite having served when/where he did, he harbored absolutely no ill will toward the Japanese. As opposed to, e.g., Robert Heinlein, whose racial attitudes could perhaps be summed up as "Hating Negroes is Stupid; Hate the Filthy Nips Instead!". When my father gave me a copy of "The Master of Go" for my 9th birthday, my grandfather remarked that one of his greatest regrets was that he "wasn't exactly in the mood to sightsee after the war".

["The Master of Go" is a thinly-fictionalized account of the famous game between Honinbō Shūsai and Kitani Minoru, and is a great book even if you do not know go, as I certainly did not when I was 9.]

He did a lot of work toward cleaning up politics in his state, at a time when it was an open secret that the Mafia ran things.

When a friend said that there was a local "go to the bar get drunk as hell pick fights that turn into feuds" idiot gunning for him, and asked my grandfather for advice, my grandfather said "hit him first and don't stop". Later, his friend told him "Thanks. It worked."

When I screwed up and quite severely offended him and my grandmother, he neither blew off my apology (as did my grandmother) nor rubbed it in and tried for years to make me feel like shit (as does my father).

He was the only person in the family unfazed by my daughter being black, my cousin marrying a Latina or my sister being gay.

He gave me my eye color and my sense of humor.

I miss him. A lot.

C̶a̶n̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶h̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶m̶e̶ ̶a̶ ̶t̶i̶s̶s̶u̶e̶?̶ How can I convince people that everday use of cryptography is no longer the realm of the tinfoil brigade, but rather a Damned Good Idea? This whole Snowden thing hasn't done it.

258 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7505 08:16

The last sentence of your answer made me tear up a bit...
Anyway, that's a pretty loaded question. It's pretty damn hard to convince people of anything they don't care about. People tend to react only when they can see how things directly affect them. Until there's a specific example or two about an average person with a lot of media coverage, people just won't care that much. The second barrier is that using everyday cryptography is daunting for the average user. If you have the means to make the technology to use cryptography easier to use or understand, do it!

Have you ever had an embarrassing e-mail/website history/search term found by somebody else? If not, what's the worst thing you can imagine somebody finding?

259 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7506 15:19

My secret stash of cheesy pizza.

How would you torture the person you most love?

260 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7506 23:06

By tickling her.

What is the longest time you have ever been unconscious for?

261 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7507 03:34

About 3 minutes, when I fell out of a playground as a kid. My little sister woke me up by slapping me repeatedly, and rather harder than she needed to. I still have a bump on my head.

What do you think animals talk about?

262 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7507 05:38

>>261 If the animals could talk, they'd be cursing my name, I'd be getting death threats if they could write

>>262 What's your favourite TV sitcom?

263 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7507 07:26

Three's Company

What's the cutest vegetable? Is it eggplant?

264 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7507 09:10

The cherry tomato.
Tastes pretty good too!

What is a man?

265 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7507 22:09

An adult Homo Sapiens with a penis and no plastic surgery on his bits.

Are you disappointed that I didn't quote some Castlevania thing?

266 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7508 00:53

Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.

Would you consider joining the Cloud Appreciation Society?

267 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7508 04:55

Have you considered shutting the fuck up?


268 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7508 07:20

"Restoring" when I'm in one of my good moods, otherwise too lazy. I was very angry when I found out what it meant, but now I barely think about it. If you care to hear my two cents, scientific studies seem to go back and forth about some potential benefit or harm, so all things being equal it's needless surgery on an infant, which makes complications possible, so it's wrong.

There are many posts by depressed people discussing their depression to be found online. When I type one up, I realize it sounds the same as everything else I've read or just bitchier. Can you make a post about your own depression, real or otherwise, that will make me wildly sympathetic? I want to think that yours is a unique, beautiful depression that is nevertheless relatable.

269 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7508 18:55

>>268 No but I could let you hear a song that I think sums up day-to-day depression better than most songs about being depressed it's quite funny. I have made posts about being depressed on the internet before and someone called me "edgy" and it sapped me for weeks

>>270 What do you think of the song I posted?

270 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7509 12:52

I grew up in Northern England (albeit a nicer corner of it), so some of the images were all too familiar. I loved the line "Your optimism strikes me like junk mail addressed to the dead". On the other hand, I can't really identify with it very much, firstly because I've never been on medication for depression (actually, I've never been on medication at all apart from homeopathic remedies, but that's another story). Secondly, though I've been depressed a fair few times, it's generally been of a far more contemplative and introspective sort. Still, a decent song.

What is your opinion on this song (Track 01)?

271 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7509 18:16

>>270 Wow, I love it, I love it all, the artwork too! I don't have much denpa but I usually like it. Do you have the track names please?

>>271 If you could steal a smooch from anyone in Hollywood, who would it be?

272 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7509 21:03

But Hollywood is full of 3D people! Eww, who'd kiss one of those?

What is your opinion on Tetris?

273 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7509 21:22

Not bad, but rather overrated.

What source material would you mash up if you were making your own Youtube Poop?

274 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7510 13:53


How do I get over the crippling shame and guilt after letting my beloved butterfly die?

275 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7510 15:19

Fill your house with butterflies and promise yourself to take care of them all.

Is there anything interesting to listen to:

276 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7510 19:35

Yes! I found myself swimming through foreign radio stations and had a pretty great time. Particularly of interest was 4625kHz.

(Also, thanks for sharing, >>270-san, that's a very nice album.)

Have you listed to any music by Toromi? If so, what did you think?

277 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7511 03:27

Yes, I have! I like her a lot! Denpa is my favorite genre lately.

Who is your favorite idol group?? If you don't have one, why not?

278 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7511 04:14

On the rare occasion I actually like the music of an idol group, it's thanks to the production, not the actual singers. The only other thing idol groups have going for them is their looks and personality, but I find their personalities vapid. Although idols are sexy, I don't like how they exploit idealized standards of beauty for marketing. I'm more attracted to girls that are within my reach and not trying to sell me something.

That said, I like Perfume.

What's worrying you recently?

279 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7511 04:23

My academic future.

What do you think of cologne that smells like an old library?

280 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7511 05:04

My roommate has perfume that smells like an old library and it smells pretty good. The dominant fragrances are leather, paper and a subtle undertone of mildew.

What do you think of a perfume that smells like flowers and grass and moist dirt?

281 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7511 15:41

That's how I like to imagine my darling waifu smells. A little bit of trivia: the smell of rain on dry earth is called "petrichor".

Maid uniform or seifuku?

282 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7511 16:13

I'm into D/s and being waited on so definitely the maid uniform.

Are you doing the spanking, or getting spanked?

283 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7511 20:39

Someone who loves differential equations as much as I can't claim to be anything but a masochist. Getting spanked.

What is your opinion on genetic modification?

284 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7511 22:20

A bad thing, but not for the reasons most people think. (You know the harping people do about DRM in video games? Imagine a system like that, IN YOUR FOOD SUPPLY, and you begin to get the idea how sinister gene patents and GMOs can be)

Do you like Steam?

285 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7511 23:21


Only for chatting purposes.


Do you eat the tealeaves when you drink looseleaf tea? If you don't drink looseleaf, why not?

286 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7512 02:15

No, I leave the leaves behind but sometimes, especially pu-erh tea, I will chew on if I'm in the mood for it. But I don't eat it.

Why do you suppose they put mainly gorillas in front of vacuum repair shops?

For the same reason they put 'Ronald McDonald' in front of every McDonald's: they're good mascots.

What's the big deal about Facebook buying out the Rift?
It's not like custom firmwares won't be released.

288 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7512 08:59

People hate Facebook (while continuing to begrudgingly use it) and this gives them an excuse to hate on it even more. And they might have somewhat of a point, even if custom firmwares are released, the average ignorant consumer might end up blindly agreeing to give up their privacy in exchange for access to cheap virtual worlds.

If you could live in an extremely realistic virtual reality with no consequences, how much time would you spend in it?

289 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7512 09:14

That depends on how enjoyable the virtual reality is compared to this one is (which I assume it is or there'd be no point asking that question.)
If that assumption holds, 24/7/365 excluding the time taken to exercise and excrete every day. Stupid inefficient meatspace body.

What would your last meal be?

290 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7512 23:02

I always lose my appetite in stressful situations, so I'd probably just stick with a nice bowl of fruit; strawberries, cherries, maybe some melon as well.

Do you behave noticeably differently when nervous or under stress?

291 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7512 23:11

>>290 I tend to shout louder, and say far more offensive words.

>>292 Can you think of a time you carefully selected words to be offensive?

292 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7512 23:39

>>291 I went through a phase of being one of those horrid boorish facebook trolls, and I am really ashamed of it all but my carefully selected words certainly made an impact.

>>293 What was your first imageboard?

293 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7512 23:58

4chan, back in the day when it was still considered new and edgy.

What was your first video game?

294 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7513 01:56

Tetris, on my mom's old Macintosh Plus.

Capitalism, socialism, or other? And why?

295 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7513 02:41

That depends on what kind of society it is: a society of robots would thrive on communism whereas a society of humans would not.
For our current situation I think social capitalism (with complete government transparency and zero corruption) would be preferable, if not achievable.

Suppose you have $500 million but can only use it to erect one building. What would you build?

296 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7513 04:37

I would build a large music building with studios, classrooms and two concert halls, with an emphasis on sound quality of the rooms. I'd fill it with every kind of instrument you can imagine, acoustic and electric.

Should I go $80,000 into debt to go to grad school?

297 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7513 12:21

Unless you have some really specific profession that you're passionate about pursuing, no.

Do you ever use the other 4-ch boards or are you purely DQN?

298 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7513 13:03

I also browse /iaa/, /general/, /net/, /personal/, /fashion/, /hobby/ and /manga/.

What, in your opinion, is the single most important piece of music ever written?

299 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7514 01:37

In terms of music history, important developments tend to form around a group of composers, making it difficult to pinpoint a single piece. In terms of affecting lives and larger political structures, it's also hard to say. Who knows how many soldiers have ended up killing more people because they were swayed by various pieces of propaganda music? Then there are revolutionary songs, like the opera "La muette de Portici", which helped start the Belgian Revolution.

That said, the most important song I can think of is "El pueblo unido jamás será vencido," the anthem of Chilean's socialist movement. The song has been used and translated by Portuguese revolutionaries, Iranian revolutionaries, Filipino revolutionaries, Argentinian revolutionaries and used in Tunisian protests, as well as other various campaigns.
It's a pretty catchy tune. Check out Frederic Rzewski's version:

On average, how much water do you drink per day, and how often do you pee?

300 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7514 03:58

I bought a large glass VOSS bottle that I've been reusing since. I drink 2 of those a day plus anything I take in during lunch and dinner. I pee over ten times a day. Sometimes pushing 20.

Do you like key lime yogurt?
