For the last few years there's been quite a lot of propagandanime: series that are set on a premise clearly meant to teach the viewer something valuable about the mundaneity of life. This does not count for shows like NHK Ni Youkoso! that simply tell a story with a redemption arc of NEET or something, that's just a straightforward plot, but when regardless of a plot the premise to set a background for the plot serves as a reminder of the viewpoints of a marginal lifestyle. Examples are Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai that are meant to exemplify the marital bliss to an otaku audience so that people would start fucking again, or Kobayashi-san Chi No Maid Dragon that exemplifies that an allegory for autism is not necessarily entirely unfit to normal society as long as they can be guarantined to a special role.
I don't think art's value is determined by its use as propaganda, and I don't like this modern perception I see floating around that a show is good or bad depending on how well it pushes messages or themes. In that sense I agree with you OP and will gladly fall for your memes.
>>18967 Thank you for falling for my meme. I don't see it as a bad thing at all, only interesting, and in fact I kinda like it. The shows it produces are by nature pandering and therefore very comfy.
Another meme I've made is garbagime, but because this far I've only made it with Akiba's Strip and Choujigen Game Neptune The Animation, it's hardly deep enough to more than stumble upon a little bit, at best maybe fall knee deep into. It's a meme about having a very specific kind of throwaway humor.
>>18959 Someone who smokes your weed and tries to get you to buy him shit even you try to remind him he broke cuz he ain't got no job then he b ackin awl mad n shit cuz u tellin dat nigga how it gon b u feel me. 💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯
>>18917 >Honestly, I didn't even expect the board owner to use it, I made it as a joke. Well BO actually using it made it funnier, even if somewhat frustrating, but yeah, joke's relevancy has ended sometime ago. Whatever I guess, but it does give off a wrong idea about /AM/.
>if banners weren't relevant to the culture of the board, new visitors were less likely to stick around. Was it really the argument? I seem to recall something different. It wasn't about the relevance itself but quality that results from there being a history to it and if you've been around you can get a feeling when you're dealing with something of cultural significance rather than just an ornament. Might not sound convincing but you really can feel these things up. The example for whether board was worthwhile was /pol/ here at the time when vast majority of it's banners were display of unironic nazi circlejerking (no idea how is it now and not interested). Someone searching for neutral free-speech discourse can tell straight away he probably won't find what he's looking for there. But it's not just that. Say you're some sort of anime professor, you look at the cover you're not supposed to judge by, however, you recognize the patters and with a degree of accuracy - depending on your experience and authors' desire to mislead you - you can tell if you'll enjoy it. There are memes that are so obscure seeing them on a banner won't tell you shit (some might be so obscure even witnessing the meme in action won't be enough to get the banner - I'm looking at you chocolate gun) but there are others that will give you a rough feeling about what happened and why it got immortalized. Now this might be kind of cheating but let's take that 'legit real' banner as an example. It points to a conclusion that the show or at least some aspect of it was enjoyed by considerable group of people to be put on the banner. Now this show is very particular and will give you volumes of information about /AM/, not raw memetic data mind you but a general idea behind it. In some other case the reason for that recognition might be ironic of course however this is something that even if unclear at first should be figured in no time by anyone with barely any experience with imageboards. Nevertheless the value of cultural relevance is not primarily in it's power to keep newfags around but to give them a hint about the place but more importantly not to mislead them.
This should be enought to show the validity of relevance in banners but if you want me to I can muster a paragraph more about how many things are visible in a banner, even if you're don't know the memem it represents, by comparing it to some famous monument.
>Also, that specific banner is relevant to the board whether you like it or not. Me and my proxies beg to differ.
>>18931 >Nevertheless the value of cultural relevance is not primarily in it's power to keep newfags around but to give them a hint about the place but more importantly not to mislead them. Yeah, banners are important to some degree. If someone came in and made a bunch of naruto themed scat banners, I would be a little miffed in the board owner put them up.
I dunno, I understand where your argument comes from but we're arguing over shades of grey really. We both think that there should be some limitation on banners as I would be against a slew of Naruto scat banners. Since nobody is going to go out of their way to actually measure the relation between banners and boards neither of us can actually prove either of our cases though.
I'm not going to argue my case further because of that, I've already had this argument once. Consider that me conceding of you like, but this is just you thinking we should be more cautious and me thinking we don't need to be as cautious. If popular opinion declares that you are right, then so be it.
>>18932 meh, anyone who dismisses an argument on grammar needs to be shot tbh
>>18943 That wasn't a dismissal, just me rereading my post and realizing how many fuckups I've made. Anyway my goal was merely to clarify my position not to argue again. As for the banners themselves so far the popular opinion was to not give a damn. Well then, back to shitposting.
Because science is evil and racist it is now time for the daily Science-y sounding stuff thread. This is in a continued effort to trigger Tumblr whales away from our christian manga image board, Shalom Hitler.
TODAY'S TOPIC: ELECTRON SPIN AND DIRAC NOTATION
First of all what is Electron Spin? Electron spin is how an electron's magnetic moment orients itself in respect to a magnetic field being applied to it or being near it's vicinity. Quick refresher to the Pauli Exclusion and Hund's rule, when an atom's electrons at the outer orbital shells are "paired up" in "spin" that means they are repelled by a magnetic field making them diamagnetic. While if the electron spin is antisense or antiparallel (your pick, nerd) it is paramagnetic, very attracted to it.
This applies even if the orbitals are hybridized or not, remember it dweebs. Or don't I don't give a fuck, I'm not quizzing you Now why is this important? This determines how easily polarizable an atom is or isn't. Because in a lab environment or industry you can't be a wasteful slut. Anyhow once you have this figure out, you can then do experiments, or ballsy enough produce polarized materials. However to do these you have to understand DIRAC NOTATION and HERMETIAN OPERATORS specifically Bra and Ket.
In the next post I will further go in detail, as well as post an image of an example you must refer to.
I saw OP at a grocery store in New York yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn't want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
He said, "BanG! Dream? More like BunG Dream!"
I was taken aback, and all I could say was "Huh?" but he kept cutting me off and going "Get it? Like bungHOLE! Butt!! Ahahahahahaha" and shooting beams from his fingers. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Holmes in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like "Sir, you need to pay for those first." At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually "to prevent any electrical infetterence," and then turned around and winked at me. I don't even think that's a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.
I gave this some thought and rewatched a few eps with super saiyans, and yeah, when everyone else powers up no one can see their ki, they can feel the wind and it's pressure, but not see. Mean while super saiyans glow and people even point it out as well, so >>18630 you are correct.
>>18829 We're talking both, and both are black or white.
You can't be half-married or half-virgin. You're either married or non-married which includes single, divorced, widow statuses. You're either a virgin or not.
...unless you're talking about unmarried non-virgin girls.
You see, the problem is that you're linguistically retarded (and possibly autistic too). You ask if there is a more maidenly girl, then refuse to define the term, then spill your spaghetti when people disagree with you.
>>18824 Not all furfags are animal fuckers though, some want to be animals, or genuinely think their spirit is a fucking animal. To paint them all as animal fuckers is quite disingenuous and only damaging to your arguments about degeneracy.
