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.

I would rather eat raw meat than eat something out of the microwave. Microwaved food is absolutely disgusting.

What are your thoughts, John?

Microwaves are good for convenience. Oven-heated is always better but sometimes there just isn't time for that.

John Smith 15/07/31(Fri)01:08 No. 44716

Tastes pretty good to me. I avoid putting bread type foods in the microwave because they become soggy. Sometimes I'll cook an egg in the microwave instead of frying it. Microwaved eggs are the fluffiest.

John Smith 15/08/04(Tue)10:21 No. 44731

I think the man in the picture should treat his microwave with more respect.

I'm not the other John but I do practice a solution to the problem:

Drink more. That's it, the aftertaste is a single event so drinking enough to make it worth the aftertaste at the end is how I do it.

John Smith 15/07/31(Fri)21:41 No. 44723

Pretty much. You get used to it.

John Smith 15/08/04(Tue)10:19 No. 44730

I am also quite fond of coffee. I prefer mine black. How do you like your coffee, John?

I just got my first smartphone (pic related) and I can't understand what people are doing with them. How do I /777/ myself with it?

How did a phone changed your life?

John Smith 15/07/31(Fri)17:07 No. 44720

I got my first smartphone this year. My old cingular flip-phone finally died, and my wife insisted I get an android. Usually, I'm a cheap bastard, so I don't spend a lot of money on myself.

As far as how a phone changed my life, I don't particularly like it. I try really hard to put my phone away at dinner, and to not check my phone constantly in front of company. Having my skype account linked with it means I get a lot more messages than I did with my old phone, whom only close friends and family had the number to.

On the bright side, I do have something to do when shopping with my wife. She does love to go clothes shopping on the weekends. And while I would absolutely love for her to just take a gal-pal and have a girl's day, she always tries to drag me along so I can give my opinion that she'll always disagree with. It's like a ritual. If she knows I hate an outfit, then it must be good. At least having a smartphone, I can text friends, surf the internet, and play a few games. Particularly, I like Plants vs Zombies 2, and Final Fantasy 6. Both are pretty good for when you have nothing to do for a while.

Good luck man.

John Smith 15/07/31(Fri)17:58 No. 44721

I always red in a books about AI that is calculating routes and aiding the hero through his journey. I am excited about the prospects of smartphones, but so far my experiences with it have been frustrating.

Maps so far are great. I don't have many friends and don't spend my life on games, so I am at a loss about uses for the device. It is terrible and chunky piece to take on a run, but ok for logging expenses as I go to adjust my habits later. Windows OS does not have much of exciting software on phones and impaired online calendar support and will not sync anything with Linux devices. Might try to find some decent podcasts to listen during commute, if battery will allow.

John Smith 15/08/04(Tue)10:14 No. 44729

I love the latest gadgets, but never really have the budget to afford all the toys. I usually pick out one particularly good item and hold on to it until I'm forced to change.

However, I never liked cell phones. When everyone got the same nokia phone, I got a top of the line Sony Clie--the best PDA that ever was. I didn't get a cell phone for myself until I graduated University because I was drifting while job hunting. That first one wasn't bad: I selected a phone with very minimal features (calls, sms, email, phonebook) and the most minimal prepaid plan available. I didn't like that people would call while I was doing things though.

Later on I got a Windows Mobile (CE) phone with a slide-out keyboard, that was almost awesome. Although it sort of doubled as a PC, it had pretty limited capabilities and lots of problems. My next mobile was a delightful Galapagos keitai, a Sony Erricson with a GPS tracking map application, digital TV, etc before the iphone. It had more features than most smartphones today, but few were needed for daily life.

Until this point I had managed my communications fairly well between the Erricson (for personal/business) and a PC (for internet). Then everything went wrong. The iPhone 3G came out: I was one of the first three people in the city to own one. It ruined everything. The influence of Apple on the mobile device industry has been horrific and profound.

Caught up in the hype, I thought I'd make my life more "convenient" by installing applications for all the communications I usually manage on the PC. The iPhone immediately drowned me in notifications for every tiny thing. I had to go back over the settings every month to manage new categories of notifications; I had to jailbreak to install software just to handle the sheer volume of notifications.* Business, personal, and meaningless internet nonsense all became one indecipherable jumble of quirky soundbytes, header banners, and full screen lockout messages.

Six months later people start to get pissed off that I don't reply to their messages, calls, pokes, etc etc. They don't comprehend that their poke was only one of two dozen unimportant notifications I ignored yesterday. They get just as angry when it was a poke as when it was a business call; they don't see a difference. It gradually gets worse throughout society. One could argue cell phones have gradually made us so interconnected that we have no respect for personal life anymore, and the iPhone's particular niche was to destroy our respect for personal priority.

Now everyone thinks they have the right to every little moment of other's day and that it's wrong for someone to deny another the satisfaction of getting attention for their most mundane anything.

Just knowing we have this companionship, John, is enough to get me through these lonely nights. Knowing that somewhere on the other side of this screen you're sitting there, listening to this same relaxing tune, watching these same words on your screen... It makes it a much more pleasant evening.


John Smith 15/08/02(Sun)22:44 No. 44728

Thank you for saying so John.
Sometimes I need a reminder such as that to show me I am not alone.

'ey up Mr. Smiths and Ms. Smiths

Do any of you enjoy tobacco?
Have any of you chewed tobacco? What are the benefits to chewing tobacco as opposed to smoking it? Are there any drawbacks?

I currently smoke Mayfairs and a few Amber Leaf rollies.

I smoke marijuana.

John Smith 15/07/27(Mon)14:52 No. 44700

As do I.

John was asking about your tobacco habit, if you have one. Do you enjoy "spliffs" (marijuana cigarettes rolled with tobacco)? or "blunts" (marijuana cigarette rolled in a cigar wrap)?

John Smith 15/07/28(Tue)08:20 No. 44704

I have smoked blunts before but never a spliff as I am an American.

Dear John, I recently found out I am Christ Jesus, the Messiah said to come in 2000 years hence circa 30 A.D.
I'm very lonely at the moment, though, and wanted to share some wisdom and thoughts. I like hippies, doom metal and psychoactives.

Do you shave before or after your shower?

Also, what razor do you use?

ITP my razor: Executive, Dollar Shave Club.

John Smith 15/07/30(Thu)14:25 No. 44714

Before. It's a pain having to constantly wipe the mirror clear when it's steamy because I had a shower first. When I shave I us cold water, something that many have told me is a no-no, pers9nally I seem to do fine if my blade is sharp. I find the water temperture needs to be hotter as the blade gets duller so if I'm forced to use hot water I really should be looking for a new blade.

John Smith 15/07/31(Fri)01:05 No. 44715

I actually used to dry shave when I had very little facial hair. I tend to shave after I shower with just water now. I received a free Gillette fusion proglide flexball. The flex thing was kind a gimmicky but the blades cut my hairs very nice. Considering buying replacement blades for it.

What a mad time to be alive John, and it's only going to get weirder

John Smith 15/07/29(Wed)19:18 No. 44710

When I was a kid, I and everyone I knew thought by the time we were adults, we'd be living under the sea in domes and in space on stations and on the Moon and Mars, working in entirely new and exciting industries with brilliant people from all over the world.

Now I'm looking forward to living just long enough to see AI pull some shit, desktop virus printing to unleash unimaginable genocides, and the race to see who's the first one to nuke USA.

I try to be optimistic, but that's as good as it gets.

John Smith 15/07/30(Thu)07:27 No. 44713

Who would've thought it would've ended up being so anticlimactic and boring

I miss the mundane days if I may be honest with you, dear John
