"GPS tells me it’s eleven minutes. I don’t think that’s right. It’s too short. How can you cross a border, go from one country to another, and be there in eleven minutes? It took us two weeks to get here.
The others laugh because I say I want them to call me Obama. We are sitting down by a tree to plan the eleven minutes.
‘Why not Clinton?’ Calculate says. ‘At least it would sound like you got some action.’
I don’t know what he means(...)"

So, tell me John, how do you like Breach? Bring it to surface.

I made the mistake of using a gel pen to respond to public restroom vandalism, and it hasn't written the same way since. Learn from my mistake and use felt tip pens for that purpose. Public toilet graffiti is a dying art form.

I used to have an industrial marker that smelled like kerosene. That thing was glorious. I drew a huge dick on the door of an abandoned mill and it was still there when they tore it down twelve years later.

John Smith 18/04/17(Tue)04:58 No. 46544

The part about the marker smelling like kerosene is true but the dick part isn't. I don't know why I embellished my comment.

I was attending a lecture the other day and I noticed the instructor had a very strong tendency to use the word “okay” as a filler word. Most people tend to use words such as “uh” and “like” when giving a speech or presentation so I didn’t think much of it. However, there were instances where she would say “okay” three or more times in a period of less than ten seconds. It got to a point where I could predict exactly when she would say it. I kept a tally in my notebook every time she said “okay”. In total, she said “okay” one hundred thirty-six times.

What kind of filler words do you use John?

Dear John

Let us write a story together.
I am pretty confident, that we can create something great together.

I shall start:

How do you make your coffee?

I just add cheap instant coffee into hot water, milk and add 1 spoon of sugar.

Dear John,

In part for conservation, and in part because I find it the /eh/ of drinks, I've taken to brewing my tea in three stages; it's kind of my own little tea culture:
'First tea' is brewed within seconds. The taste is very light but also fruitful, the best tea for the morining.
'Second tea' can be brewed after first tea, or in place of it if the tea is left to steep too long for first tea. This is the full-bodied, general-purpose tea most people drink.
'Third tea' can only be brewed after second tea. Brewing third tea takes the longest, due to the depletion of the leaves. The taste is light and deep. This has become my favorite kind of tea, best as a nightcap.

I brewed my coffee grounds twice, and was surprised to find it drinkable

Sleepytime is delicious. Unless you want to bother with loose leaf teas, and all of the stuff you have to buy along with it, boxed teas are just as good.

John Smith 18/04/04(Wed)12:22 No. 46502

Second coffee is an economical and satisfactory dink choice.

I picked up brothers karamazov and find myself quite enjoying Russian/American Authors. Prior to this I was reading the Stoics and some Japanese Mishima and Murakami.
What have you read friend?

I am reading The Three Kingdoms, 120 sizzling chapters of Chinese history. I can't say that I'm captivated by it, but it is an important book in Asian culture, so I ought to read it

John Smith 18/04/01(Sun)19:53 No. 46492

Hello John

I can't say I'm as cultured as my fellow Johns above me, but I'm reading the monogatari books. I also have a book about some sort of pagan business called the secret of the she-bear that a friend got me so I'll be reading that for his sake as well.

I bought a drip coffee machine today from a second hand store. I'd never used on before today. I had some coffee for a French press i used to use til i broke it and made a pot.
I hadn't used the coffee for a few moths and it tasted a little "dirty", I think I need to try a few different brands to find one I like.
I didn't want to be wasteful so I drank the lot, it was nicer than in the French press but it got me quite worked up as since I quit smoking I have cut back to only one cup of instant in the morning.
How do you have your coffee? Are there any particular types of coffee you use?
I like my coffee strong and with some milk and two teaspoons of sugar.

Excellent question, John. When the Keurig machines first came out, I dismissed them, assuming they'd die out quickly because it was then an obscure proprietary system to do something that was fairly easy to do otherwise. Clearly I underestimated the public's appreciation for the convenience of having a single serving's worth of coffee pre-measured in a self-contained pod.

John Smith 18/03/18(Sun)17:06 No. 46454

I always pour boiling water over my coffee grounds and let it steep for as long as I think is necessary. It makes it very strong and dark, and I don't add anything like milk or sugar. When I feel it's done I transfer to a new cup with a small sieve, the grounds mostly stay in the bottom of the old cup anyway but I like to make sure as sandy coffee is unpleasant.

I've been using espresso grounds lately. I think the dustier grind leads to more particulate making it through my sieve, giving the coffee a creamier texture despite being black. I like it.

John Smith 18/04/01(Sun)07:35 No. 46491

Indeed John. Personally I avoid them, for I find them to be wasteful

Hello, John. I don't know if you still feel like you feel like being called John, time may have ravaged you in ways I cannot possibly understand - the human psyche and complexity is not a thing to be underestimated.

I haven't posted on 7chan in approximately 3 years, and the first board I was concerned about still existed was, you, /eh/.

The internet and social media is bringing about a revolution in social recollection, isn't it? What you do and post on the internet truly is forever.

I'm pleasantly surprised you still exist. That's as much love as I'm able to communicate. I'm not autistic (at least no psychologist has thus far diagnosed me as such) - this is simply the way I feel - about you in this madness which is my life situation.

As for my life, it's become extremely complicated, a ridiculous extreme - that I've found trying to communicate to others is rather tedious. Very tedious. I simply stopped trying and instead make friends with those who understand me in as few words as possible. This is not depression (I know what depression is; this is not it).

Well, I'm glad this is accessible, and that the banner is still something about spiders. This is certainly a relief. How are you, John, or whichever designation you now prefer? (I apologize, I did not read the other threads - I was unorthoxically ecstatic! I shall do so immediately. The Firefox browser is telling me that 'unorthoxically' is not a word, but I no longer trust it)

I don't know how many of you were here 3 years ago, but I'm welcome to more recent acquisitions of /eh/ just as well. To be clear I was here almost 10 years ago (wow do I feel old), but /eh/ was unfortunately not invented that long ago. Then again, this is an argument for progress, is it not? I never felt that much kinship for Usenet, myself.

John Smith 18/04/01(Sun)07:28 No. 46490

I too have returned after a long sojourn. I used to regularly visit this place about 5 years ago, but life got busy and complicated for a while. After a time the novelty of a complicated and busy life wore off a bit, and here we are again. In a way, it is nice to see that this place has not changed much since I left.

I also had internal struggles. For a time I was depressed, but after many years I found contentment in my situation, and indeed I am glad to have the luxury of struggling with abstract concepts such as self-actualisation, rather than having starving children to feed. Humans do seem to invent a new problem whenever they solve an old one.

I am thirty in less than three months. Once upon a time, I spent hours on 7chan every night. Now I check it maybe twice a year. I wonder if 7chan will be here in another ten years? I wonder what all my old friends are doing now? I feel like those than also frequented here back then are all in a similar situation to me now. Different lives, obviously, but I doubt they check here much.

Nicely said John.

Well, I'm glad I might be wrong. I like this website and I hope it's around for a long, long time.

John Smith 18/03/25(Sun)05:43 No. 46471

Hello, John. I just recently posted a thread remarkably similar in situation to yours. Unfortunately I decided to post the thread well in advance of reading the others. This was an error in judgment in retrospect.

There is nothing wrong with wondering if 7chan will be here in another 10 years. I wondered the same thing. However, it seems like there is as will to make exactly that happen. Too many have fond memories of 7chan. Enough to sustain it. Perhaps they developed new memories and acquaintances that are worth the host bill. I'm sorry to say I have not contributed to the host bill, but there are a lot of needy children in Africa I also have ignored, so I don't feel quite that bad.

Life is not what any of us expected it to be, but the human experience is not quite what any of us expected, I've learned to expect.

Perhaps they're lurking among us? Don't worry about it too much. John . I'm sure they haven't forgotten about you. I know i certainly haven't forgotten any kind people I've met over the years. Who knows? Perhaps they're out on bigger and greater things in their lives. But their memory lives on with you so what not going to change unless you forget
