I assure you that stereotype about American tourists is not exclusive to Japan.

Ooooh, lotsa booz

Taiwan looks cool and I would like to go but it would probably be a bit difficult for me.

Your photos are cool though. It's be nice to have onsen raamen.


Again, from what I understand a lot of the stigma around tattoos in Japan is more a matter of flaunting social norms, which older generations in Japan regard as unacceptable, and that it largely comes historically from contact with Westerners who refused to do business with tattooed people. The yakuza are tattooed because their traditions are rooted in pre-Western Japan and because they don't care about adhering to strict social norms.

Not entirely unlike in the west where excessive visible tattoos, especially on the face and neck, until recently, meant that people wouldn't hire you. Sometimes because it makes you look like a criminal, sometimes because it makes you look "low class" or because they are "not consistent with our service standards."

I think that most people have at least one or two things they almost never talk about "in public". What I mean by this is things you enjoy or things about yourself that you avoid talking about with the "general populace" because you don't want to come off as weird or crazy. Things you don't necessarily feel guilty about, per se, but things that most people probably wouldn't understand and you just don't feel like needing to explain it EVERY time (or perhaps, you think people will judge you and you just don't feel like dealing with that.)

So this thread is your chance to talk about those things, without fear of judgement or anything of that nature. If you feel comfortable with it, please share these things. I feel being able to talk about these things is cathartic. Getting things off your chest. Things that are important to you but might seem weird or unusual to other people.

Maybe its a type of content you enjoy, maybe its a religious or spiritual thing you feel like might make people uncomfortable in normal circumstances, maybe it's life events or interests that define you but you never really get a chance to share them.

Think of this as a safe space, a judgement free zone, a place of open discussion and sharing. I advise using spoiler text as a way of talking about things without feeling like you're in a spotlight.

Since this is me making the thread, I'll start, as a show of good faith. Know that what I speak about is something important to me but that I often avoid. If I can do it, then you can too!

I actually have two topics, but I will only share one in this OP so I have more to add later.

The topic is: Otherkin.

Some of you may have seen me talk about this in passing before (or remember years ago I made a thread that talked about it), and others may be a little bit familiar with it through general "Internet Osmosis". But chances are if you've only heard it in passing, you probably don't have a good idea of what it actually is, as it has often been used in the past as the butt of a joke, similar to furries and whatnot, and you may have some misconceptions about it. Or you may have never heard of it at all.

No, I just used the name Eris as a moniker for myself. I didn't really acknowledge her existence much back then. My experience being plural basically went: As a kid, I acknowledged her, she was around, I talked to her, aspects of her bled into me, she may or may not have fronted at some points, I don't remember, and overall I didn't really understand what was happening because I was a kid. Then I grew up more and basically learned to ignore her presence or shut her out or something along those lines. And then over the course of a few years, mid to late 2010s, I started acknowledging her more, figuring things out, I learned abour plurality, etc. But while I was posting as "Eris" on Ponychan, it was mostly in the time where she was... not DORMANT exactly, because she was active as usual, but I considered it more just... my brain being crazy at the time. Which... I guess wasn't exactly INACCURATE lol.

Something that kind of happened a lot back then was me thinking that something Eris was saying to me or telling me to do or say was an intrusive thought or my own brain just coming up with something random to say and I just went ahead and said it. That still happens occasionally now, but usually I just talk back to her (usually audibly because I'm just like that) or I will use Pluralkit on Discord to actually have her say it.

Anyways, what you describe for you certainly seems a lot more normal for what I'm used to with my plural friends!

A few of my partners are plural, too, actually. Uhhh... most of them are, now that I think about it lmao.

Yeah, this page will do for a rant.

What little work I have is making me feel like shit today. But may also have lead to a minor epiphany.

I have bitched enough about how I am basically too worthless for jobs to consider me, and don't even believe any where exists I would be worth jack shit at to earn a decent wage anyway. All the work I have is the occasional video for YouTube and the art classes I do, and that only amounts to a few hours here and there, and whatever I earn from that gets deducted from my welfare anyway, so I get no further regardless of how much I work.

And today just seemed intent to play on every insecurity I have about even THAT much and convince me both things will end any minute now so I can go right ahead and feel even more worthless than I usually do.

Short version - on the two days of the week I have art classes, thursdays has been incredibly difficult to get students for these last two seasons for some reason, even though I had quite a few in late-2021 / early 2022. It just seems no matter what I do, my ads for it reach NOBODY, or jus tnobody shows up.

So this season, I basically just had this one older woman who has shown up for a while now.

But a girl joined right at the start of this season who is already really good - but then I got a text from her mother asking of more people are joining soon, because "er being the only one her age there makes her feel bad", and since she hasn't been here the last two weeks, that's more or less confirmation that she is not showing up anymore.

And sure, I get it. I totally see hwy she'd feel that way. She also appears to have a number of diagnoses and anxieties, so I am not blaming her. That's just a hell of a thing to send to me. Like, what am I supposed to do about it? I can't force people to join a class.

Big spoiler

Hot take:
I found season 1 Nowhere King pretty nice as this sort of ominous threat. Maybe the ending of season 1 was a bit contrived in my opinion.
The pay off in season 2 was something, but here I felt a bit disappointed. The Nowhere king turning out to be a janitor who does a bit of tinkering outside because he loves a human girl was a bit of a let down. And it may have been explored a bit more.
I feel like Season 1 set the villain up for a bit more than what they ended up doing with him.

The larger, flat European kind a re generally pretty tasty and easy to make.

I remember one time going to vacation village sort of thing and there was a Pancake house restaurant.
They had those large yeasty pancakes that were very filling.

Now usually when I think American pancakes, I think fat smaller pancakes, but maybe that there were American pancakes.

...where you realize that a lot of the things that were fun as a kid were only fun because you had people to share it with.

Being sick and unable to go anyway for over a year is really taking it's toll. At the very least, after my last ER visit, I'm finally, finally on the mend now. But man, I missed out on getting to talk about a lot of things when they were coming out.

Arcane, Andor, Splatoon 3, NOPE (which I haven't even gotten to see), and so on.

There are WAY too many cool and fun things that I haven't been able to talk about with anyone because everyone is all so scattered in their interests and free time now.

What's also kinda tragic is like... finding something that's friggin' awesome, but it came out years ago and all the hype is dead, and even the communities online dedicated to it have long since become deserted.

Like, Bad Guys only came out a few months ago, and yet... well, it's all but forgotten now.

The tragedy of time.

You do the workaholic thing just fine though, and you get the asian blush. So you're still pretty Chinese.

Ooh fun fact. only two major groups of people present with severe alcohol intolerance. Peoples from East Asia, and peoples from Native America. This suggests that ancestrally they were the same people, who crossed the land bridge between the two continents back when it was connected.

I had to read up on this because even though I work in the oil and gas industry I've never heard of it. Turns out the reason is that this kind of 'red diesel' doesn't exist here.

In Germany it theoretically exists, but companies don't get their diesel cheaper on purchase, they get the mineral oil tax partially refunded by the state.

As to the video, he's neither hero or villain to me. It's just what happens when the state subsidizes companies while the general population has to deal with high energy costs. Helping the companies makes sense, but they should do it in a smarter way.
The German way is smarter, cause everyone pays the same (and no one knows construction or agricultural companies get money back).

This isn't a case of the port being dirty?

I try not to get a new one more than every 2 years preferrably not for 5+ years.

In 2022 I finally "upgraded" my phone, but it turned out to be a downgrade... so I ended up buying ANOTHER phone, making it two phones in one year, but the second time was a MASSIVE upgrade so... I hope this one will last me 5 or more years. We shall see.


I actually only got a new phone because my old one was having charging port issues and wouldn't hold a charge. I think I had it for about 4 years, though?
