Did any of you browse 4chan when you were younger? Like, before 2007, when it was fun and civil, not the twisted abomination it is now.
Those were the good days. We were all alike, because even if you were a fat neckbeard weeaboo, everyone else was a also a fat neckbeard weeaboo, in their hearts. This picture sums it up nicely.

I've been there since 2012 but i could feel it was already collapsing. 2016 and later the domain split were the final nails in the coffin, things got exponentially worse since.
There's a lot of what I wished from 4chan in places like this one, so I wish I got tired of it earlier.
I don't know how, but I'd love to buy a cheap server and run a textboard on it. I have a few ideas.

For shame. Freedom of speech is the highest virtue.


I'm not even sure if that's true anymore. It seems like people just abuse their "freedom" every time. You can't even have a real discussion anymore with people who are actually capable of basic critical thinking.
Overall I'm just sick of people. There was never much real, oppressive censorship in the West anyway, it's just people who demanded this situation because that's the kind of world they want.


It's still important to be able to say anything in order to evolve as a society


If you have criteria for things not allowed to be said, bad people will twist the words of others until they fit those criteria.

Just look at Tumblr. Supporting pedophiles and nazis is bad, so now asexuals are pedos, republicans are nazis, and saying that transexuality is a medical condition makes you both. And once you have those labels applied to you, it only takes a teenager bored-enough to find your personal info to get doxxed and have your life ruined.

I was born a bit later than most of you it seems and this is what I grew up with. The music still stirs up strong emotion.


for me it is mario sunshine. mario 64 too, though i played it on wii virtual console - i was once sick for almost 2 weeks, and i would play it all day long.


I played the 2nd game and I liked it a lot. It was fun to have 2d and 3d levels.Yoshi is the best addition and his items allowed for some cool levels.

The challenge was high enough for young little me to take over a year to complete it 100%. Still my favorite Mario game.

The galaxy games were past my time, but not by much. Super mario 64 on the N64 and then Sunshine on GC were mine, and yes, the music in both of those games I regularly listen to. Video game music has become a really big part of my audio library.

Either way, we can all relate to the fact that Nintendo makes wonderfully memorable games with levity and a great ability to make you want to lose yourself in them for a time.

Once my grandfather died my dad lost a lot of drive to do anything and ever since then my Christmases have been a depressing, horrible mess. This year was no doubt the worst.

I was very lucky to have a functional and good childhood. My family has gone to shit now and have been that way for a 5-6 years. We had to foreclose the house I grew up on and now we rent a little shithole in the sticks with no central heating. Parents don't work, sister lives here with her kids, barely a pot to piss in and I just know they aren't going to have the great Christmases I did.

That makes me sad. We'll never have as much money as we did growing up and their dad is a worthless shithead alcoholic who won't child support.




Did the same thing, we'd use oatmeal for the reindeer


Used to go driving around to see the lights every year until "gas prices" suddenly became an issue.

chocolate oranges at the bottom of our stockings. cats sleeping under the christmas tree. taking off my glasses and looking at the lit-up christmas tree was like a instant, huge kaleidoscope due to my awful vision.

my mom didn't get a lot of things right but she really knew how to make holidays feel cozy and special.

Nostalgic Crush Thread
This thread is for any nostalgic crushes that you had. What are they from? Why did you like them? (If they're real did they age well? lol) Animated and real allowed.
Try not to judge anyone. This is a friendly thread :D

I'm starting off with an obvious one for me. Mitchell Tratchenberg from Harriet the Spy. She was also in The Adventures of Pete and Pete she's been in a lot of other stuff too. I remember watching Harriet the Spy a lot on my VCR. I can quote the hell out that movie. Harriet was a really cool character and I've always loved writing and ninja stuff and spy stuff so I connected with her character a ton.

So what about you guys?

I also had a thing for her but not until I watched Eurotrip. But I did have a thing for Sarah Michelle Gellar in the late '90s as well as Britney Spears.


File: 1567543932878.jpg (879.87 KB, 2247x3000, debby-ryan-aka-bailey-pick….jpg)

Debby Ryan, a.k.a. Bailey from The Suite Life on Deck.

I was obsessed with her. There was a bad few days when I genuinely yearned for her, and toyed with the idea of training to be a child actor just so I could have the chance to meet her on the set of some Disney Channel programme. This would have involved, by the way, moving my entire life abroad to the US. My mother even noticed my pains and managed to get me to admit my crush to her. It passed pretty quickly tbh but I remember it quite clearly.

I only watched Breakfast Club recently but I found her quite attractive, too. She reminds me of Lain, lol. Then at the end of the film they cleaned up her hair and put make-up on her and she actually looked worse than before.

Lina Inverse was definitely an early "waifu" for me also the first anime I ever watched subbed back when I found it on VHS in a local store. Also gave me a thing for redheads for sure.

So recenty I been having a blast for what was like to surf the internet 10 years ago when things were not so centralized.
There was always something new and different right after the next corner and every new place had new people.
I haven't felt that feeling of novelty when you stumbled upon a new resource, flash game, webcomic and so on in a long time, it was always different.

The internet is no longer the wild frontier it used to be and all the pioneers have disappeared.

Years ago common forums were very active and lots of people had personal pages
Today not even google can take you somewhere new.

I had a nostalgia boner over 10 miles long thanks to Cameron's World. I'm really glad to be lurking in this old thread.


File: 1572653029589.jpg (8.19 KB, 276x230, matt-and-adrian-cole.jpg)

Not sure if it really belongs in a nostalgia thread, but: http://www.adriancole.org/index.html

It's a memorial website for a young baby, Adrian, who died of meningitis. The mother, 18 at the time, shut the biological father, Matt, out of her life and was raising the baby with her (even younger) new boyfriend. The father only saw his son, he claims, when the baby was in intensive care at the hospital before his death.

It was suspected that the boyfriend, Josh, had shaken the baby and contributed to its death with abuse and neglect. It went to trial but the boyfriend was found innocent and acquitted. The father, Matt, set up the website and blogged about the trial. Here is the last entry, from 2003:
>The End of court…
>by matt
>Josh was found inocent and every charge, he some how got completly out of every thing. I don't know what to say.. Right now I really don't wanna talk i'll leave one last update tomarrow and leave more on my update about what happened, I don't fully understand it, the DA said they will call us tomarrow morning let us know why he was found inocent on all charges… well i'll be back when I understand better…

As for the website as a whole:
>Updated on: 12/03/2006


this website is a webpage about a guy that got cheated on while his mother was dying

also a website that is a puzzle game that revolves around singer kelly clarkson


Does anyone else remember doodieman from the '90s, early '00s? Originally "doodie.com".

I would play it friday evenings after school and whenever I got stuck I walked around the little town and look through my bedroom window and a beautiful dusk would be settling in. Each new thing I discovered felt so satisfying and fulfilling. I felt like I could live in that little world forever.


I still need to try this game out sometime.

In a ridiculous bid to seek our approval, my stepdad (then my mom's boyfriend) years ago set this up for me and my sister, and said we'd get a quarter for everyone each of us caught. This repeated for a few rounds. Made so much money that night


ba$ed $tepdad. Remind a family member of that memory. I'm sure it will lead to some other good stories.

Let me post another one I had as a kid.

Wilson Is Very Important.
Mod(s) please sticky this thread.


Tell me more about this "builzon-kun" I have no idea who he is but I do remember that guy from Excel Saga. He lived a sad life. Felt bad for him.


It's an internal joke I have with some friends, They know I post here so they made this thread, Don't mind it.
>Excel Saga
Yeah, in the anime he's called Pedro, my friend used that picture because it resembles the 'Builzon'.


Ah, I see. lol
Yeah, that's right his name was Pedro. It's been way too long since I've watched Excel Saga now.
Hope things are going well and you aren't dealing with problems like Pedro.

This thread is for music that makes you feel nostalgic. Post yt links to songs that make you feel nostalgic (even if you don't actually have memories with them) and maybe what the song reminds you of or makes you think of.

I'll start…
This song reminds me of my earlier childhood (as far back as I can remember - 7yrs) but especially of my old school. I went to a private christian school in the booneys. This song just makes me think of that time. It reminds me of when things were sort of structured..having to tuck our shirts in…all the girls wearing these dresses that went down to your ankles that would seem way out of fashion now. Getting pulled to the principal's office by my ear with my friend. Going around the merry-go-round. Going to the top of the slide and looking out at a massive field with super high grass that seemed to go on forever and a green and orange forest that seemed to hug the school itself.
