Dear John,

I have come to visit you for the first time in quite a while, and I must say that your board is dreadfully boring.
Now I know you may see this as a compliment, but I assure you that it is not. This was once a source of pride for me - conversations were held on many topics and the superiority of Pepsi-Cola was never in question. It seems that through the years you have all forgotten the statement of this board: Every conversation is uninteresting.
This does not mean that only excessively droll conversation is allowed. You may talk about anything, especially topics that may not be suited for other boards.

Why am I telling you this, John?
I fear the trends over that past year have created a circlejerk in shades of gray; every man stroking unenthusiastically and not a single climax reached. The board approaches an insipid singularity and the userbase stagnates and shrinks.

What do I feel I can do to halt this monotony?
Remove this monochrome veil.
Turn off the elevator's wail.
Take back your own names.
Move from completely uninteresting to mild interest.

Just as many others have said, a looseness on moderation is needed. And a post notifying all 7chan users on the front page should also be beneficial.
Yours truly,
Johnathan Smith

Welcome to /eh/

Where everything is just... eh...

/eh/ is not for crying, /rnb/ is for crying.

Do you perceive a draw in a a game or sport as a mutual victory or a mutual loss?
Like the pessimist I am, I've always figured that if there's no clear winner, both parties have lost.

John Smith 14/09/02(Tue)19:47 No. 43625

Probably a similar perspective to John's thoughts on a glass of water >>40861

John Smith 14/09/02(Tue)23:01 No. 43626

Sports are contests of skill, strategy, and luck. The final score is a product of this, and it is the least important part. It just happens to be the easiest to count and track. But it is the contest of skills, the challenge and drive to improve, that are important.

It might be different if we used the results of sports to negotiate treaties or somesuch, but we don't.

I recommend the OP watch some Harlem Globetrotters games. The Globetrotters almost always win, but that's hardly the point.

Recently quit gaming.

Aside from reading and exercising what hobbies could I engage in?

John Smith 14/08/26(Tue)02:47 No. 43587

i suppose the very nature of those leading a sedentary lifestyle makes actively seeking hobbies an unwanted chore. assuming John fits said criteria, i would advise shooting, playing an instrument, or perhaps learning a (programming) language.

John Smith 14/09/02(Tue)03:29 No. 43621

Try weightlifting, I know it sounds monotonous but its actually pretty fun. Im not sure why, it just is. It helps me take my mind off things, when your lifting you dont really think about anything else.

John Smith 14/09/02(Tue)16:23 No. 43623

I'm piss poor at guitar, I never took a leson, will probably never be able to sing a single song from start to finish correctly, and my guitar needs repairs.

Practicing and learning how to play guitar and creating those sounds is amazingly fulfilling for me

Thought of the century: There must always exist somewhere, out there, a mould of metal made from the banging of blacksmiths, even when technology has gotten to the point where we have flying cars and extravagantly shaped buildings. Liquified metal is moulded from the mould of another piece of metal, and that mould was made from another mould, and that mould was made from another mould, until you've reached a point where a handmade one is imperfectly made. Chicken or the egg? Err, handmade you fucking idiot.

>Postulate 1: How does moulding work
>Postulate 2: You have to do this, despite the fact I just admitted that I do not fully understand the concept of moulding and its many facets

Returning to your original post, cut away the pagentry and tell me concisely what you are trying to prove.

John Smith 14/09/01(Mon)22:54 No. 43618

Following the ancestral trail of the metalwork, the beginning or start of it all is one that is imperfectly made. I don't know why you need me to tell you it's all in the thread.

John Smith 14/09/02(Tue)08:20 No. 43622

But you are eliminating many possiblities by simply fanatically sticking to your ancestry dogma. Revision to moulds and new technologies, though based on imperfection, may eliminate initial imperfections. That being said, perfection is not necessarily the goal of certain moldings, as cost effectiveness, availible materials, production time, and a multitude of other factors may take precedence. What is your obession with perfection, when it is not necessarily necessary?

Haven't been here in a bit, and the same threads are still mostly on the first page.
That's nice.

So, how about that summer, huh?
It's been ok over here, so far.

June was hot. August was ok. September is just starting, so no opinion yet.

Is there someone living with you who tends to open cereal boxes upside down? Only reason this narks me is because then I can't read the box while I eat.

The way a bag expands upon being removed from the box, resultingin a the situation wherein once you replace the bag in the box, the box becomes obese, frustrates me to no end.

John Smith 14/05/16(Fri)15:02 No. 43122


If you'll gently shake the obese box containing the expanded bag, you will find that the box and its contents will return to a more satisfactory state.

What vexes me most about cereal boxes is the newer style of closure, wherein there is no proper slot in which to insert the tab; in its stead there is merely a notch. This new tab/notch system is akin to intercourse with a one-sided vagina and is, perhaps, even less effective.

John Smith 14/09/01(Mon)23:06 No. 43619

specially since cereal boxes are made of a much thinner cardboard now

You have a protective shield that neutralized the “I cant’s”.

You now have total recall at will.

Reach in now and remove any block to your memory.

Anytime you feel the block coming back, take a deep breath and the block melts away.

Remembering is now a priority for you.

It is no longer a battle to remember: it is easy and natural for you to remember.

It doesn’t have to be difficult to be worthwhile. What you need to remember is easy to remember.

As you receive new information you have total recall of this information at will.

Is your glass of water half full or half empty, John?

Mine is half empty, which reminds me that when I finish the other half, it's gone and my glass will be empty until I refill it.

Is that some new hip internet quip or a simple mispost?

John Smith 14/08/31(Sun)13:54 No. 43612

If I were to complete this sentence: "The glass is half...", then I can't be unbiased. But if I were to say "This is a half glass of water", then the problem is avoided. We don't need a word with two meanings, we just need to think outside of the box.

John Smith 14/08/31(Sun)20:33 No. 43614

I have an Initech mug that I'm quite fond of.

John Smith 14/08/30(Sat)20:40 No. 43611

My father bought a mug for me while stationed in South Korea. It's a nice big thing, with a depiction of bamboo shoots lining half of it. I drink an awful lot of things from it, anything from milk to sodas to alcohol.

John Smith 14/08/31(Sun)18:01 No. 43613

I have a lucky mug too.
It has a cute, fat piggy on the side.

I got it while doing a sort of improvised internship for my old school. They paid for it too. This mug has been through some strange times in my life. If that piggy could talk, he'd have quite some stories to tell.
