Being invisible would be a comfy ability.

Well friends, while we all wait for our psychic abilities to unlock, there are still worlds to travel to today.

Here's a recent reading:

Can a man cling only to heaven
And know nothing of earth?
They are correlative: to know one
Is to know the other.
To refuse one
Is to refuse both.

Went hunting for used books and CDs and faced the cruel reality that the majority of what I enjoy reading and listening to is now suddenly "retro" and sought after by collectors, thus awfully expensive and behind the display case But aside of filling my library with a copy of Space Odyssey and finishing the Robot series they had a translated copy a manga I was about to order anyways so I grabbed (read as actually bought!) one as well and ran

Could recommend taking 2 hours of your time in a huge town to scout for personal cultural relics aka books, will do again

>>1439 This above is actually a part of my health plan, I am currently spending a lot of time in the capital city so I dose myself at least 1 hour of wandering daily to
1) make my phone happy for walking 10 km
2) unintentionally stumble upon interesting sights, shops and tasteful food (would recommend saving up for that one through )
I live in countryside so I usually spend this hour working or walking in the nearby forest instead.

But people these days seem to enjoy watching gaming streams even when the streamers speak languages they don't understand. I should give them a try

Esteemed Ikouchan members:

Do you partake in instant messaging?
I find it too stressful so I don't and actively avoid it.

By the same token, I acknowledge that instant messaging effectively replaced any other form of interaction.
Whether it be in person or posting online.

It is crazy to think how much dopamine hits people are getting on the day-to-day if they are in a few group chats.
Though I think a lot of people also just lurk IM channels and they eventually die.
That's what happened to IRC and the few group chats I used to partake in.

I heard walking down a street you've never walked before can improve your brain health!
The mixture of buildings from different eras in China is so cyberpunk
Can you guess in which era the buildings were built?

Talk about cyberpunk, Chongqing is definitely gets mentioned, the train going through the buildings must have been quite a sight.

>Can you guess in which era the buildings were built?
Partly. I tried to study architectural history, but it's too hard.
Not to mention all the imitation ancient architectures all around me
But I've been playing geogussr for a while and I've learned some tricks. It's much more likely to be able to tell what areas a building is in.

>Are there your favorite cities to watch? Most cities on Earth seem to have their walking tour videos nowadays
I can't decide. Many cities have given me enjoyment
I also like a another way of exploring a city, I follow a vlogger on bilibili(巡游轨迹) who chooses to visit a city by travelling randomly, which makes the journey full of surprises!

I found this rendition album of the Ghibli soundtrack and found the voice angelic.
There's some sort of dignity to be found in it.

My journey was much simpler and less interesting than one might wish it to be , I was looking at his involvement with a particular song for an animation and ended up liking his solo works as well. Not to say that Denki Groove doesn't make cool music, that would be untrue and very rude .

I don't think my last post would be something special.
I don't believe those who declare like "this is my last post!" can actually manage to stop coming back to imageboards

I suppose, I would make my last post without knowing it and then get busy irl or accidentally die or just lose interest in imageboards gradually at some point
It's scary that we'll never know if missing posters just walked away or died

I read your aticle, and don't disagree with a lot of it, but there isn't that much of a grand conspiracy to all of it. They want you in this state of distracted consumption solely because it makes them money for you to look at their ads and create more data to market with, there isn't much more to it than that really.

And it's not all bad, most youtube content is garbage but you can still watch things you enjoy with services like invidious.

Yes, it has been used for social control and this is proven, but this obviously comes second to making money. This is the point of all it, like it also mentions the importance sport has in society, this is because it's a big money maker. Sport is also important because it's one of the few remaining social and identity organs left in a lot of countries, it's one of the few physical activities we still do and also because people plain enjoy it!

Moderation is key to all of this.
