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

501 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7777 05:45

>>499 I just got in bed so absolutely nothing. A comforter I guess.

>>501 do you prefer warm temperature and light blankets or cold temperature and heavy blankets?

502 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7777 19:33

>>591 Warm temperatures and light blankets. There is a good reason I never left the state of Florida, I like hot weather.

>>503 What is your favorite Japanese mecha of all time?

503 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7817 00:02


How often do you drink tea? And what sort?

504 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7817 00:59

About once a week at most. I prefer cheap fruit flavored tea, my favorite is peach.

How do you feel about the future of yourself? Are you worried, excited, or both?

505 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7817 05:43

I'm not worried or excited, I'm resigned to the fact that I'm going to be living a shitty professional sort of life doing something I don't care about completely for the money. I hope one day to quit that career and do what I really want.

What's the greatest problem with the world today?

506 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7817 23:27

Large scale neglect for the environment.

Do you play a musical instrument?

507 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7818 20:49

I used to. E flat horn, motherfuckers! I also understand keyboard, but not enough to really actually play. I'm more of a composer now though, but I still remember how to finger Star Wars.

What does one do about the threshold in the number of figures owned where your bedroom suddenly turns into an Akiba 2nd hand shop? And what the hell happened to >>500's answer?

508 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7820 16:33

You could try spreading them out across multiple rooms, or make them blend in better by placing them each inside tastefully arranged little dioramas.

The response to >>500 fell through the cracks of reality, far beyond the limits of our humble understanding.

How do you feel about Lovecraft's work, and fiction in that style generally?

509 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7820 20:34

Horror and supernatural themes are not my taste. I prefer optimistic sci-fi stories, where the only enemy is ignorance.

Do you like stargazing?

510 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7821 22:20

Unfortunately, everywhere that I've lived so far has had extremely bad light pollution, so I haven't had much of a chance. On the few occasions that I've been stargazing somewhere where I can actually see anything, I've rather enjoyed it, especially things like watching meteor showers or seeing the ISS pass overhead. I don't know the first thing about recognising constellations or such, though.

When was the last time you went to a protest/demonstration/public march, and what was it in aid of?

511 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7822 15:14

Never did. The kind of people who march in those are utterly embarrassing to be around.

When's the last time you watched a protest and rolled your eyes in exasperation at their stupidity?

512 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7822 16:17

I once saw a group of people protest because of the result of a football match, but normally I think public protests are paramount for a working democracy and fill me with hope in our future.

How do you feel about your own government?

513 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7823 18:22

Could be better if we got those lizard-people everyone's talking about in charge.

What do you think will be the best form of government by 2100?

514 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7824 01:15

>>513 By then, we will have all attained true immortality without sacrificing our humanity and also we will have embraced anarcho-hedonism. Society will looks something like a mass collection of sex and violence, where pain and pleasure are one and have consumed the planet.

>>515 Do you accept "dice" as an acceptable singular, or do you prefer "dice" remain plural only while "die" functions as the singular form?

515 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7824 02:46

I prefer "douse" in the singular and "dice" in the plural.

Do you prefer green or black tea?

516 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7824 06:15


Do you often eat beans/legumes?

517 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7824 18:16

No, almost never in fact. I prefer root/leafy vegetables instead.

What even are Fourier transforms?

518 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7824 22:45

Threeier transforms plus oneier transform.

Should I buy a japanese style futon?

519 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7825 00:24

Only if you have a tatami mat room. On a wooden floor it's going to be way too stiff. (Even on tatami, I still prefer a mattress, personally.)

Should I confess my love to a friend, even though we are both in stable long-term relationships?

520 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7826 00:29

I think you should think very carefully about what would be in the best interests of everyone involved, as this could seriously negatively affect several people beyond yourself. I'd have to know a lot more about the situation to advise you properly, but overall frankly it sounds like a terrible idea.

What have you eaten today?

521 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7826 19:37

A slice of bread and some cheese. It was expensive cheese, too.

If you keep using your computer (or other device with which you're reading this) at typical use patterns, but don't upgrade or maintain it at all, which part do you think will fail first?

522 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7826 20:03

The hard drive (this is a couple-years old samsung netbook). I have perceptible pauses even in text editors, while the disk spins up so it can write the file. Under the assumption that maintenance means I can't modify the laptop mode settings, this would be the first thing to make me throw it out the window.

It's 8pm. Was this coffee a bad idea?

523 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7826 21:10

Probably not. Unless you're some weakling unused to drinking coffee and even one cup is enough to keep you awake.

I lost almost 100$ yesterday. What would be the best way not to starve if I can't pay for food for a couple of weeks?

524 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7826 22:09

Ask your friends or family for food and/or money. Tell them you are in a desperate situation. I'm sure they don't want you to starve.

Which country are you from?

525 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7826 23:08

England, although I'm also half Hungarian.

What do you know about Hungary, off the top of your head, without looking anything up?

526 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7827 00:31

Palinka and Magyar

How often do you pee?

527 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7827 20:38

No more than half a dozen times a day. More often when I'm cold, or so bored at work that I just keep getting drinks (it's probably at least 20 times a day, every work day).

Could you recommend me a trackball?

528 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7827 23:35

I recommend that you track my balls as I slowly lower them into your gaping anus.

What's your favourite tonal language?

529 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7828 02:25

Dorian mode in D.

How many people do you consider close friends?

530 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7828 04:53

DQNs are my only friends, really. So three or four.

There are two chairs, one covered in dicks and one covered in spikes. Which one will you sit on and, which one will your mother sit on?

531 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7828 13:22

I sit on the dick-covered on and let my mother sit on the spike-covered one. But we both earth titanium pants.

How many people are here anyway?

532 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7828 16:13

A lot more than people think.

What's your favourite internet acronym?

533 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7828 19:36

>>532 3DPD

>>544 would you prefer if all women were pettanko or bakunyuu?

534 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7828 21:41

big tits

Do you drink oil?

535 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7829 03:41

No, for I am not in any way a robot.


536 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7829 03:55

A gay-ass wall.


537 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7830 00:23

Did you know bacteria have been observed to have sex? Everything you were taught in biology class was a lie.

How many different places have you lived in - say, for at least a month - over the course of your life?

538 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7830 00:56

Well, I was only in Greece for about 2 months, Now I will probably visit Spain but I'm not sure for how many months or days...

Do you listen to lolicore or breakcore?

539 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7830 01:25


Does your room smell like fish?

540 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7830 02:13

Only after MY GIRLFRIEND stays the night.

Are you done yet? Supervisor's waiting on you.

541 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7830 04:24

Yes. Here are the files, I hope they're everything you need.

Why am I so tired all the time lately?

542 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7830 06:57

I'm a doctor and it's clearly a case of brain cancer. You have 20 days to live.


What's the most embarrassing way to die? Something that would make whoever finds you either laugh at you or question your life choices. Or both.

543 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7831 03:52

>>542 I have heard of auto-erotic asphyxiation is an extremely dumb way to die.

>>544 Do you often find that masturbating with your bare hand isn't enough?

544 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7831 06:26

>>543 I wouldn't say often, no.

>>545 Why has my nose been smelling funny for the past week or so?

545 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7832 01:05

You have a cold or something, go to the doctor.

I don't really want anything out of life. Is this a blessing or a curse?

546 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7833 00:16

Depends, it could go either way really. If you mean that you're able to take pleasure in the flow of life without needing to impose your own will on it then that's probably a good thing. If you mean you've simply given up on actively trying to live then it's probably not.

What is your current desktop background?

547 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7833 01:21

A perfunctory color-fill of #3399FF.
I don't see the point of desktop backgrounds.

How do you cope with the fact that you'll never be special?

548 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7833 01:48

Cope? Are you saying it's a bad thing?

At some point, you will be forgotten by all. What do you think the last thought anyone will think about you is?

549 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7833 06:32

"I wonder what ever happened to that weird guy I went to *th grade with."

What should I do with my last 17 days of life? (according to >>542's prognosis)

550 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7833 23:47

Prove/disprove a famous mathematical problem. If in 17 days' time you haven't gotten anywhere, just say you've come up with a beautiful elegant proof but haven't got long enough to write it all down before dying.

Should I try learning Swahili? Supposedly it's an absolute pushover of a language.

551 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7835 18:29


Go for it


Do you like aquariums?

552 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7836 23:45

For a while I was rather put off by the whole idea of zoos and aquariums and suchlike, but, having read the bit near the start of Life of Pi where he discusses the topic, and having now been to one or two myself, I can appreciate that it's somewhat naive to assume that taking an animal from its natural environment is necessarily harmful to it. It's been a very long time since I went to an aquarium, but I suppose I do like them in the abstract.

Do you think a procedurally generated text adventure sounds like a good idea?

553 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7837 00:41

Yes, but it would have to have a lot of input possibilities to avoid repeating itself and becoming boring.

What starch do you consume the most of?

556 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7845 14:33

If you meant what source of starch, then probably pasta, especially spaghetti.

What has been your least favourite book that you've read all the way to the end?

557 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7846 04:33

Ignoring books that were assigned to me back in middle/high school, Asimov's "Foundation & Earth", which I only read in the hopes of some kind of closure for the thoroughly irritating end of "Foundation's Edge". A perfect example of a great author writing himself into a corner (although if he'd lived longer he might have ended the sequence with satisfaction).

What was the last work of fiction you read/watched/listened to/etc. in which the ending positively surprised you?

558 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7846 15:09

The first one that comes to mind is Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let me Go. I have to admit I was rather lukewarm about it most of the way through and didn't really care that much about the characters or what happened to them. The ending, however, was really excellent, completely unexpected and tied up the story beautifully. It's worth reading for the ending alone.

Have you ever donated blood?

559 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7848 19:24

>>558 No. I have to take medicines every day, and that disqualifies me from giving blood.

>>560 do you prefer faucets with one handle or two handles?

560 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7849 02:50

One handle, by far. For both showers and taps.
You can use it with one hand, you can turn the water off and on while keeping the temperature constant, and a single handle looks more congruous with the single stream of water.

How would you feel if you found out mathematics was, in fact, empirical?

561 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7849 18:04


How's your fern?

562 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7852 17:01

How'd you know about my fern? Getting a little personal, don't you think?

Can I be your bride?

563 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7852 17:46

In theory, yes. In reality, no.

Do you have any unusual fears/phobias, or do you know anyone who does?

564 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7924 22:31

My psychology teacher from years ago had a phobia of birds. She claimed it was from a traumatic experience she had when she was very young: she, her mother and her younger sister (still in a pushchair) were out in the park feeding birds, when an aggressive swan came and tried to bully the bread from her. It apparently bit her by the head and lifted her clean off the ground - meanwhile, she saw her mother running away and abandoning her, prioritising keeping her younger sister from danger. That does sound pretty traumatising, all things considered.

If you were to die right now, how long do you think it would take for somebody to find your body?

565 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7924 23:57

This very instant? I'm on an office full of people and I don't even get to enjoy the privacy of a cubicle. It wouldn't take very long until someone notices there's a corpse lying in the middle of the hallway, that's assuming somehow everybody around me just failed to see me collapsing on the floor. By the way, if someone passing by were to pay attention to my screen, they'd see I'm wasting time here on DQN instead of working.

Do you have any strategies to stealthily browse DQN while at work?

566 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7925 17:19

Work at home. I've done it since 4-ch came about.

Is that your phone ringing?

567 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7925 21:27

Joke's on you, my phone is out of battery right now!

Roughly how many kanji do you know?

568 Name: RedCream : 1993-09-7925 23:00

I knoa zeroa Kanji. I see noa reason to learn any, even nao.

How often do you admit yoar roal?

569 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 02:24

I know a couple like chikara and some other common ones like water, fire, etc. I'd say under 20 total.

Is Discordianism a joke religion/philosophy, or is it completely serious?

570 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 05:03

I doubt they have reached a consensus on that point.

What things that are definitely jokes today do you think will be mistakenly interpreted as serious by the future?

571 Name: RedCream : 1993-09-7926 05:13

Cheese! In thoa foature everyoan will eat cheese! Lol!

What do you think about <b>PUMBLENUTS</b>! Just kidding!!! no im not!

572 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 05:31

A lot of the parodies of the more extreme serious Tumblrisms like otherkin and headmates. Things like transracial specifically, though they may already be people who are taking the joke seriously.

What's your favorite variable used in science or mathematic?

573 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 05:36

I like to use Z because it looks like 2 and confuses others.

Has science gone too far?

574 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 05:42

>>573 here, I can firmly say it has.

What do you think?

575 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 05:50

I'll trust your judgement

Isn't s closer to 5 than z is to 2?

576 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 06:44

I don't think any one is closer in appearance than the other. They're both similar.

What is the most pretentious field of study?

577 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 16:18

Modern art.

What do you want?

578 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 20:34

Happiness and financial security.
How far is the distance between where you are and where you want to be?

579 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7926 22:31

A couple of thousand miles, one language barrier, one magical barrier and one barrier between reality and fantasy.

Do you talk to yourself? If so, what about? If not, what do you think of people who do?

580 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7938 01:55

>>579 Yes. About my predictions for world events and estimating the odds of various things.

>>581 What do you think about gravebumps?

581 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7938 05:15

>>580 I've never heard of them, but they don't sound pleasant.

>>582 What did you do for Memorial Day?

582 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7938 19:52

>>581 I went to the grocery store and bought some supplies for my mother.

>>583 Have you ever gone to a Chinese restaurant on Christams Day?

583 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7945 22:14

No; all my Christmas meals have been rather traditional and boring. However, I do remember one year, when I was quite young and for reasons I can't recall, my parents took me to a supermarket some time around midnight on Christmas Eve. All the fake joviality of the environment and the obvious fact that every single person present desperately didn't want to be there made it a rather surreal experience. It's the sort of bizarre memory that I almost suspect might've been confabulated or just a misrecalled dream.

What is your favourite invertebrate?

584 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7945 23:05


If you were me, what question would you ask the following poster?

585 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7947 15:39

>>584 I'm not >>539, but I'm usurping him and asking his (your) question! Why? Because.

How did you get your unusual fetish?

586 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7947 19:14

>>585 Because girls would always pretend they don't do that thing, and I never got to see them do it when I needed to see it.

>>587 Ever play Hatris?

587 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7947 21:20

I just did. Before I googled it, I expected it to be a joke game referencing TF2. It was pretty underwhelming compared to actual Tetris but the music was cool.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how important is sex (with physical, 3D people) to you?

588 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7947 23:03

Probably about a 2. I can appreciate in the abstract that it's pleasurable and a good method of emotional bonding, and might seek it if I needed either of these things, but for the foreseeable future I'm more than happy with 2D.

Copenhagen or many worlds? Or something else entirely?

589 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8291 20:23

Copenhagen. I've seen no evidence for the many worlds interpretation at all, it seems like just wishful thinking. Personally I have no particular problem with determinism or God playing dice.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

590 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8292 12:01

A scientist, maybe? And a game programmer! Now I'm hoping I get to finish uni with the CS degree I don't care much for anymore (not surprising, the curriculum is only okay and I've been using computers for almost 3/4 of my life), and then maybe I'll be able to research every topic I will care about! (Ha ha, no, you need funding for that, silly.)
Plus, I can't exactly study chemistry on my own; it was far less complicated and a legitimate interest when you were a teen.

( ß -ß) A friend of mine is very, very depressed. Too much to kill themselves, I expect, but I feel so powerless, I actually started avoiding talking with him because it's too painful. How much of a coward am I, and how do I put my own mood swings on hold in order to help my friend?

591 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8292 14:27

I remember hearing that apparently one of the most common causes of drowning is untrained people trying to save someone else from drowning and being pulled under themselves. Similarly, if you aren't equipped to help someone with depression then you shouldn't risk your own mental health in an attempt to help them. Of course, you should still try to help your friend where you can, but don't take all the responsibility on yourself. I can't really advise you on mood swings, but I'd suggest that it might be best for both of you if you focus on encouraging him to find professional help.

What is your opinion of modern art?

592 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8292 16:29

Overpriced garbage, for the most part, which I guess is matching the inevitable societal slide into degeneracy and mediocrity.

Paper or plastic?

No thanks, I brought my own. (Store managers, take note. If you want more people to do this, do what my grocery stores did and just run out of all disposable bags consistently for two months.)

Paper clips or very small binder clips?

Very small binder clips. You lose the advantage of flatness, but they feel more secure and easier to manipulate.

In your opinion, should prostitution be legalised/regulated? If so, how?

>>596 It should be legal and regulated that an attractive prostitute regularly rides my dick! No fatties.

I want to make a bullet hell game. My plan isn't too complicated, but it would still involve some fairly serious amounts of programming, and I only know basic Python. Should I stick with Python (and make use of existing, well documented modules like Pygame) or should I take the time to learn a more serious programming language first? If so, which one?

The elitist in me says that you should stop using your crappy language and use my objectively superior language. Really, though, you have a concrete goal right now. You should try to achieve the goal with what you know. If you end up at a point where you say "Gosh, I really wish I had this very specific thing", you'll be in a position to find and use a language which gives you that thing. Maybe in a year you'll look back at the code you write tomorrow and hate it, but at least 1) you'll have written it, and 2) you'll have learned from it.
