I've never really managed to like anime music, with a few exceptions such as vid related. Maybe it's just too unserious -the same reason I'm often indifferent to openings.

I kind of agree, most of the music like the above and most anime OPs all sound the same. Some of the OST is pretty cool though.

>I still have a dim recollection of this meeting, the shock of which left a deep impression on my memory. I remember suddenly finding myself surrounded by strangers, while before me was hung a drab curtain through which I could see an emaciated and terrifying hideous face. This was Cixi.

>Puyi's wet nurse, Wang Wen-Chao, was the only one who could console him, and therefore she accompanied him to the Forbidden City. Puyi did not see his biological mother, Princess Consort Chun, for the next seven years. He developed a special bond with Wen-Chao Wang and credited her with being the only person who could control him. She was sent away when he was eight years old. After Puyi married, he would occasionally bring her to the Forbidden City, and later Manchukuo, to visit him. After his special government pardon in 1959, he visited her adopted son and only then learned of her personal sacrifices to be his nurse.


>The Anglo-French journalist Edward Behr wrote about Puyi's powers as emperor of China, which allowed him to fire his air-gun at anyone he liked:


>Johnston was allowed only five texts in English to give Puyi to read, namely Alice in Wonderland and translations into English of the "Four Great Books" of Confucianism; the Analects, the Mencius, the Great Learning and The Doctrine of the Mean. However, Johnston disregarded the rules, and taught Puyi about world history with a special focus on British history. Johnston also told Puyi so much about his native Scotland that Puyi eventually expressed the desire to visit the "Scotland the Brave" that his tutor spoke of with such pride and love. Besides history, Johnston taught Puyi philosophy and about what he saw as the superiority of monarchies over republics. Puyi remembered that the piecing blue eyes of his tutor "made me feel uneasy … I found him very intimidating and studied English with him like a good boy, not daring to talk about other things when I got bored … as I did with my other Chinese tutors".


>Puyi could not speak Manchu; he only knew a single word in the language, yili ("arise")


>it is doubtful that the eunuchs working as gardeners much appreciated Puyi's habit of riding through the flowers.

>In June 1937, some members of the Manchukuo Imperial Guards who were off-duty fell into a trap when they objected to Japanese colonists jumping the queue for rowing boats in a Hsinking park, leading to a brawl. The Kempeitai had expected this and were waiting; they arrested the Imperial Guardsmen, who were then beaten and forced to strip in naked in public, and finally convicted by the courts of "anti-Manchukuo activities".

> In 1934, Puyi had been excited when he learned that El Salvador had recognized Manchukuo,


>Puyi became a hypochondriac, taking all sorts of pills for various imagined aliments and hormones to improve his sex drive and allow him to father a boy, as Puyi was convinced that the Japanese were poisoning his food to make him sterile.


> The Showa Emperor replied "I must comply with your wishes" and gave him three relics, namely a bronze mirror, a sword and a piece of jade (reproductions of the Imperial Regalia of Japan) to take home with him to be the center of Shinto worship in Manchukuo.[219] Puyi later wrote "I thought Beijing antique shops were full of such objects. Were these a great god? Were those my ancestors? I burst into tears on the drive back."


>In 1940 Wanrong, also known as "Elizabeth Jade Eyes", engaged in an affair with Puyi's chauffeur Li Tiyu that left her pregnant. To punish her, as Wanrong gave birth to her daughter, she had to watch much to her horror as the Japanese doctors poisoned her newly born child right in front of her. Afterwards, Wanrong was totally broken by what she had seen, and lost her will to live, spending as much of her time possible in an opium daze to numb the pain. Puyi had known of what was being planned for Wanrong's baby, and in what Behr called a supreme act of "cowardice" on his part "did nothing".


>Yamada was assuring Puyi that the Kwantung Army would easily defeat the Red Army when the air raid sirens sounded and the Red Air Force began a bombing raid, forcing all to hide in the basement.


>To test the reaction of his Japanese masters, Puyi put on his uniform of Commander-in-Chief of the Manchukuo Army and announced "We must support the holy war of

>At the age of 56, he married Li Shuxian, a hospital nurse, on 30 April 1962, in a ceremony held at the Banquet Hall of the Consultative Conference. From 1964 until his death he worked as an editor for the literary department of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, where his monthly salary was around 100 yuan. One yuan in the 1960s was equivalent to about 40 cents USD. Li recalled in a 1995 interview that: "I found Pu Yi a honest man, a man who desperately needed my love and was ready to give me as much love as he could. When I was having even a slight case of flu, he was so worried I would die, that he refused to sleep at night and sat by my bedside until dawn so he could attend to my needs". Li also noted like everybody else who knew him that Puyi was an incredibly clumsy man, leading her to say: "Once in a boiling rage at his clumsiness, I threatened to divorce him. On hearing this, he got down on his knees and, with tears in his eyes, he begged me to forgive him. I shall never forget what he said to me: 'I have nothing in this world except you, and you are my life. If you go, I will die'. But apart from him, what did I ever have in the world?"

If everything is a simulation, how can i be sure that i'm a real person playing this simulation and not a dumb NPC?

if the world around is not a simulation how can i be sure that everything surrounds me is not a product of my imagination and i am not in deep coma?

being an NPC in coma is utterly depressing

Post interesting things you've found on Google Earth

I've been strolling around Mars lately. Turns out that the default view is a patchwork so messy it took me a while to find Valles Marineris and the Hellas Basin. Viking imagery may be hazy, but at least it's a cohesive view. Ultimately I settled for exploring from afar with the beautiful relief map, which exposes the planet's formerly fluid glory, and using regular surface data when getting up close.

I just woke up from a long and very stressfull dream about feelings of guilt.
It was about friends that thought I'm a loser and attacked me with knifes, and a female I know who just wanted to destroy my life by creating a website which told very bad stuff about me.
In addition the dream consisted of three parts one long story though.
I can't remember much about the second part, only that I got drunk and took heroin which I've never done in real life.
In the last part my family and me somehow managed to visit new york for a short time and we wandered through endless streets and I was drunk and high as fuck and couldn't walk properly for a few minutes but then got my shit together and continued walking until we got into a building in which we met relatives and took stuff from their fridge, they also had a kot.
However I feel much better now then I felt yesterday, nightmares can have positive endings.
Also I want to travel the USA now even more I have a weird obsession about it but I don't have monies and wouldn't know who I'd want to come with me.

Last night I had a complicated and somewhat emotionally distressing dream, but my memories are too hazy to describe it. All I can clearly remember is that, at the very end, I entered my bedroom to discover that North Koreans had completely messed it up, even by disassembling my desk for some reason about "increasing literacy". I assume my bedroom appeared because of my alarm clock ringing, and literacy, because of my Victoria II addiction

Does anyone else have dreams involving "reading" fictional site pages on the internet?

I have them sometimes, and they're certainly the most boring and unimaginative kind of dream anyone could ever have. Instead of scenic landscapes and highly emotional movements that peak as one wakes up, it's just a dull, narcotic experience that gradually fades away until you're conscious and in a poor mood.

Whenever this happens to me, I'm reading either Wikipedia articles or unidentified news sites; in either case, that's a bit problematic, as my memory preserves small pieces of each dream's imaginary content and they merge into my knowledge.

One such dream, the most recent I can remember, involved reading about the pro-Russian rebels in the Donbas, including a lengthy article about how they were losing -"losing to obesity" (kek) or something of the kind. My imagination then drifted to some narrow desert canyon where pro-Russian militiamen fired their AKs at an unseen enemy while peeking in and out of cover. Interestingly enough, there were more of them entering and leaving, like ants, what seemed to be a deep tunnel/cave system through the rocks, but the dream didn't last long enough to explore it.

A couple nights ago I had a heavier dream in which I got to follow the news regarding a gruesome prison riot whose only event I could really remember was the guards having their eyes gouged out. What I found most remarkable wasn't the event itself, as far bloodier prison rebellions that ocurred this year are in my mind, but that the emotional weight was lower than one would expect and I talked with my grandmother about some irrelevant things like car license plates.

An older dream (last Thursday, if I can remember) involved flying through an arid landscape on a Google Earth-like program. The scenario had life-like resolution and 3D projection and its final and most memorable point was a narrow canyon surrounding a vivid blue stream. I even got to "dive" in with my flight and observe the land at its bottom, which was, just like the stone everywhere else, of an uniform texture with no pebbles or dust of any kind. The stream and valley then opened up into a wider pool fed by a very high waterfall. I think I can remember where did the waterfall and pool came from, but the canyon seemed completely original instead of a recycled known space, which is what I dream of 99% of the time.
