A new study shows that unlike dogs and cats, horses do not form bonds with specific humans. They do not love us. (https://nypost.com/2020/11/03/horses-dont-love-us-as-much-as-we-love-them-study/)

Well, son of a bitch. Time to ball up all my fanfiction and throw it in the trash!

So another interesting factoid I heard a while back was that cats understand their own names (or rather, the names humans give them.) (https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/cats-recognize-their-own-names-even-if-they-choose-to-ignore-them/)

But anyone who's spent any time with cats knows that they do, which calls into question the need for this type of study in the first place. Maybe we are seeking the answers to the wrong questions.



>But anyone who's spent any time with cats knows that they do, which calls into question the need for this type of study in the first place.

I think formally testing anecdotal or folk wisdom is perfectly justified. Sometimes science confirms such things with rigorous formal study, sometimes it discovers that what something appears to be on the surface is not what's actually going on underneath.


I guess I can agree with that. But that's the case, then that too would apply to whether or not horses love us.

>Link: https://www.harpersbazaar.com/celebrity/latest/a34676204/prince-charles-72nd-birthday-kate-middleton-william-queen/

Charles, Prince of Wales, turns seventy-eight today. He's the heir apparent to the British throne as the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II and has held that position for the longest time out of any individual in the history of the U.K. Being Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothesay as well, he's known for his extensive charity work and pointed social commentary on issues such as environmentalism as well as for his, to put it delicately, sometimes controversial personal life.

What do you think about the royals in the U.K., friends? What about monarchies in general? Are they vestiges of past eras that ought to be cast aside? Or do they have much usefulness today?

As a kid I didn't understand the relationship between the Crown and the parliamentary government, and it's still hazy to me. Some places abroad still "recognize" the Queen, but I was always told she was a figurehead with no executive power, so what does this "recognition" mean? I suppose, as an American, I'm just not used to the notion of aristocratic traditions.

Though I will say that the idea of a politically prominent figure that is not directly involved with policy is interesting to me. Perhaps in some way it helps the system to function as a totality. And maybe it's also a historical precedence for what in modern parlance would be termed an "influencer".

So, I was checking out this film on Crackle.com that was semi-randomly recommended to me by this other website that I'm a member of, and the movie opened with this shot, prominently displaying this quote.

I took it in. I thought about it. And I started to get rather irritated. I became more frustrated the more that I pondered it.

Let me go off for a moment:

>First, is it not really unfair to say the least if not actively obnoxious to somehow pretend that women have some sort of an obligation to behave in one certain way (or else, I guess)? All of them? Just by existing, alone, they've got to conform to these unreasonable expectations?

>Second, even putting the problematic nature of the females-belong-on-a-distant-pedestal-to-be-gawked-at-instead-of-seen-as-realistic-humans mindset (which, unfortunately, is rather popular among all genders at the moment) aside, isn't it rather stupid to begin to think like this at the outset because people are people and people are unique? So what if, say, some random woman doesn't like others and would rather live an introverted life with pets on a deserted-ish island somewhat? That would be her choice. And if she's happy, well, I'm glad to hear that she's glad.

>Third, even if we put everything to do with feminism and gender roles aside, is it not also bad to the point of actual bigotry to think this way when one looks at men and non-binary people? Why can't they be given the same treatment? Don't their dreams and hopes matter as well? Seriously?

Then, though, I kind of looked at myself and realized that I'm falling into the stereotype. The "easy triggered, over-sensitive, flies-off-the-handle at the slightest thing that isn't political correct SJW" stereotype. If I was on most places online, I'd immediately be made fun of with Pepe the Frog memes and other such images getting posted at me immediately. And... maybe they'd have a point?

To what extent do you guys try to deal with allowing minor things that happen during your day to trigger you emotionally and really bother you at a deep level? Are you able to shrug a lot off? Be cool as a cucumber? Or do you constantly find yourself in doubt? I'm wondering.

I struggle with it. I would compare it to watching a 24-hour news cycle (something with which I've had some extra acquaintance the past few weeks). The same old story goes on, and on, and on; then there's a tiny development, and all the pundits are talking again, hammering home the same talking points. Like this type of news, it's an attention sink, and I have my own reel of headlines.

Unfortunately, there is no "trick" for it; one simply notices that one is doing it, and "makes the devil meditate". You can learn to be careful about some things. For example, thinking in terms of "types" of people is an inevitable habit, and typically deleterious to one's state of mind. A metaphor for this is the association of people with animals.

Even having it start mid-November is problematic!

Wait until Thanksgiving, damn it!


Gotta agree with this. My old store did it because they didn't want to count inventory, too.

Do people need to prepare to catch your bodyweight when you pounce on them?
Or can they expect a punch in the mouth if they dare go for a hug?

Do you keep physical contact to close friends only?

Corona rules may not apply.

Let's talk about some of the strange dreams we've had recently (at least the parts that you're comfortable with talking about). We can use this thread as a sort of dream journal. And if you like, you can talk about any subconscious meaning you might think the dream has, if you think it has any meaning at all.

Last night I dreamed that I was playing Xonotic
a game that uses a heavily modified Quake engine and has modern graphics and effects.
In the dream, I used the in-game mod browser that gave you mods in the form of big balloons full of stuff that came out of your computer which you had to pop. I found an interesting looking mod called Teen Girl Squad (which is the name of something from the Homestar Runner web series) but when I loaded it up, I discovered that it had nothing to do with the miniseries from the site. But it had some interesting maps to play on.
Like one where the bots and I were skeleton pirates, but despite looking like traditional seafaring pirates, we were battling in the middle of a desert.
Then I played on a map called "Battery Farm". Despite this, it didn't have any batteries and was at a gas station with a mini mart nearby. Then we were attacked by a twister that we discovered was being controlled by a midget general who was following it.
It seems like a common theme is inconsistency (video game mods with physical components, pirates nowhere near the ocean) and misleading implications ("Teen Girl Squad" in name only, a battery farm with no batteries or farms)

Last night I had a dream where I fucked up a server I recently started running for Bunkerchan's /GET/ board, and I absentmindedly ran a command that truncated all the tables and deleted all the data
`TRUNCATE GETCHAN*` and then panicked and looked for a command to undo it
Interestingly, I actually do run that server and that's a mostly valid SQL command

A dream I had a few nights back, I dreamt I was stranded on a long stretch of road next to the countryside. against my better judgement I attempted to hitchhike with the 👍 method.

Then I saw a lady in a white gown and black hair. I approached her asking if she was hitchhiking and was going to ask if we could hitchhike together for safety but then she vanished before me. I was a bit shocked at first.

Then she started reappearing, vanishing and screaming at me. I figured she was one of those hitchhiking ghosts I've heard of and she was upset I was hitchhiking on her turf.


Last night I dreamed that my mom brought home a copy of the local newspaper and I was reading the letters to the editor section, when I noticed that one of the letters was a bizarre combination of the Navy Seal copypasta, the do you liek mudkipz meme, the longcat is loooong meme, and the cake is a lie meme. I thought it was really weird that this was in a prestigious newspaper, so I put it on the breadboard to take a picture of it and send it to a couple friends from high school, but when I checked the image, I noticed that my face was clearly reflected and you couldn't really see the text. I decided to retake the picture but I realized I had set the newspaper on a sopping wet area and now the newspaper itself was sopping wet and most of the ink was faded. I was going to ride my bike to the grocery store to get a new one but I ended up changing my mind and deciding that while it would be kinda cool, ultimately it wouldn't be worth the effort, even if my mom was kinda pissed at me for ruining her paper before she was able to read it.

...i have hidden myself in the park for lunch, as i  sometimes do, as i  have felt overcome by the need to reflect and meditate on things.

The autumn leaves are on the ground. The air is sweet with fall crispness, and occasionally the smell of cooking stew wafts by.

i find, more and more, that i do not understand why life is this way. the more i  think, the more i know, the less and less i understand.

i try my hardest not to think, for this reason. To empty the self, to be empty of thought, is divine. But, i  cannot overcome the need to think... and i am exhausted, at the prospect of having thought...

i have always felt that boring is a blessing. there are many days where i wish more than anything that i could be bored...

bored, i feel, is the absence of something to make you not bored. And if that is absent, it means nothing bad is happening.

and i would love it if something bad could just stop happening

oh, i know this, mamuta, pikmin, this is the answer

do you really think so?



Yep, overthinking and rethinking, analyzing and intellectualizing life and its existential problems is a commmon thing for some people that have the tendency to do this. It's common for people to have problems thinking about all kinds of problems practical and existential, and there are some ways to manage it more and less healthily, so it can be a good thing to explore.
