What did the idiot children ask today? (12)

My roommate is a high school history teacher. We used to exchange boring pleasantries each evening, but now I eagerly greet him with: What did the idiot children ask today? The questions and (sometimes) answers posted here are going to be his hidden second-hand shadow blog that he doesn't even know about.

The students are provided with an open forum before each class in which they can ask questions about things they've seen on TV and the Internet. This is necessary because much of their information regarding "history" comes from the History Channel. Obviously, they're confused as their textbooks seem to imply that alien conspiracies are NOT at the core of every major historical event.

I'll try to keep this updated at least weekly until the school year ends. Please bear in mind that the children aren't necessarily idiots, I just call them that because I'm immature and rude. You may also notice that the topics rarely involve history.

Q: You know that packet of stuff that comes with beef jerky? Should I eat that?
A: It says "do not eat" for a reason.

Basically, the kid wanted to know if that stuff was dangerous to be near his beef jerky but he just worded it wrong. They had to go into details, of course.

The manufacturer is not going to put anything that's a deadly poison in with food because someone will eat it eventually. It might make you sick, but wouldn't kill you. And no, it will not make you high. This is the follow-up to every question involving almost any household product.

We're getting there (USA). It's a public school. About half the students are Hispanic, most are US-born, but their parents not so much. Many speak Spanish at home, not English. This obviously leads to some difficulty in educating them. Don't think this is like Stand and Deliver or something. These kids are generally well-behaved, though very much misinformed.

One kid had a question regarding the never-ending conflict in Palestine. This led to a brief discussion of the history behind Israel, all the wars that led to the loss of Palestinian territory, how both sides have been overtaken by religious zealots, and how it's basically an ongoing disaster with no easy resolution. Following that, we get:

Q: What exactly is the New World Order?
A: [facepalm] Remember that one for after break, k?

Strangely, they've been on topic and asking boring things about real history/current events. The only thing of note:

Q: What kind of music do you like?
A: Uh, a little of everything?
Q: Do you like Taylor Swift?
A: No, not really.
Q: That's OK. No one likes Taylor Swift.

I don't know why I found this funny.

>>9 Witch doctors?

Well, with the immigrant population follows the "Botanica" which sells all matter of magic oils and crystals. This is what passes for medicine in parts of Mexico. Read up on it or visit one if you the opportunity presents itself. It's basically a witch doctor with a storefront. How many believe it? Don't know. I'm sure a lot of their parents do, though.

Oh yeah, and also regarding witch doctors:

They sell some crazy medical devices on late night Spanish-language television. If you want to sell a wand of multicolored LEDs that cures cancer, that's the place to do it. The FTC/FDA aren't watching and those ripped off are unwilling to complain.

I want to leave the US now. (9)

I want to leave the United States really soon, before I would finish college. I don't really care WHERE I go as long as it had at least a passable human rights record (i.e. not Saudi Arabia). I don't have a lot of money, so I'm trying to find a job or internship or whatever that would give me food/housing for work.

East/Southeast Asia would be exceptionally good. I find it hard to imagine that no one would be interested in hiring a live-in English tutor or something...

What model phone do you own? (24)

Title says it all. Post your phones.

15 Name: Anonymous : 2012-01-11 04:55 ID:t95wTrhc

I have a Japanese flip-phone. A Softbank 740SC.

It's truly the bottom of the barrel among Keitais, but one of these days I'll buy some expensive Chinese version of a Sharp phone, because they're all totally unlocked per default.

Probably a SH7218U.

What model do you have?

16 Name: Anonymous : 2012-01-11 06:17 ID:e7za4u2u

I've been googleing both of those phones and they are both drool worthy. How do you get phones from Asia like that and how you make them work with American plans? Are there are ones that run Linux? Tell me more!

>In October 2010, the French firm Lëkki re-introduced the StarTAC as a 'retro' phone. Refurbished second-hand phones using the original specifications (including the small screen and single-band communication) are available in yellow, green, pink, and black.

I have to wonder if there is a sufficiently big market for "retro" mobile phones. Then again, this is France we're talking about.

First things first, Japanese phones are usually locked in all kinds of ways, and they need to be unlocked using intrusive methods if you want to use it on your foreign network.

You can either buy a Software Unlocked phone, or you can buy a Hypersim to unlock them. A Hypersim is like another thin simcard you put over your real simcard, and you can then use your phone on your gaijin network. It works with almost all models, but it's unreliable and breaks down all the time, and annoying tricks are needed to get it to work again. Would not recommend. The other way to use it on foreign networks is to buy a Software Unlocked phone. It's what it sounds like; Someone has edited the firmware to allowed it to be used on non-Japanese networks. This is the best option, as it all works just fine. In the old days only a few phones had this option, and it was expensive, but now the main companies Softbank (I would guess Sharp too) can unlock phones for you in-house, so there are a lot more choices on the market. But it costs extra.

However, note this; Almost all the special features on your new shiny phone WON'T WORK; because most is still locked to Japan despite the hypersim/software unlock. So you won't be able to use Internet, MMS, or other cool features. You will ONLY be able to call or SMS. There are a few exceptions, but assume it will be non-functional. There's a way around this crap. Sharp makes phones for Japan, but also for Taiwan and China. They're almost exactly the same phones, but the Chinese phones are always fully unlocked per default, and with functional internet, TV, etc..

Ah thank you.
Well if they are all locked up in any way I won't get it.
So get one of the Chinese SH7218U, SH0902C, WX-T930 ones then?
All I really need is goof interface, photo/video camera, web browser, QR code reader. Not a touch screen. Can one of the Chinese ones you posted do all that?

Nearly all phones are here are the same. Touch screen with Android. Don't want.

22 Name: Anonymous : 2012-01-13 03:02 ID:t95wTrhc

All of them have that. The SH7218U has both touch and normal keypad like a regular flip-phone. But it has Android and a mediocre quasi-smartphone battery, so if you yearn for a more classic phone the SH0902C is a good choice(Not SH09020C, because 20C doesn't have 3G), but most people use the non-3G version so I don't know if there are any dealbreaker differences between 2C and 20C.

SH7218U runs for ~250 USD on Taobao with shipping and such. 350 on ZeroXKeitai. Many use this one, and I'd buy it despite Android and all.
The SH0902C you can find for 130 or less on Taobao.
The WX-T930 is a super slick, but hard-to-find Taiwanese version, but if you wait you can find one on Taobao for around 150. There are other random sites too which stock it.

They are all cheap as shit for how good and well built they are, and there are many more models, of course, but these are the phones I would consider.

I just found this in my diary from last year.

September 2005
I guess this dream took place in 2010 or so, the library was "modern" (like a book store) but also old, run-down, and overflowing with unsorted books. It was snowing outside and I was glad to come in. I looked around in the Japan section, and next to the usual travel guides and history books there was a phone-book sized guide: "Hikikomori (Revised Edition)". I started flipping through it, it talked about how you should find your Hermes to set a good example for other otaku, and how Key fans had petitioned to build a statue commemorating Ayu in central Tokyo. The book was huge and overflowing with everything that had been written about otaku and hikikomori. I started reading from the first chapter...

OK, so here is the fish apocalypse dream: It was the end of the world and fish were taking over the world and they were going to eat everyone. So in the dream everything that was plastic would turn into a fish. So I told my dad, "Here watch" so I put a plastic Tupperware bowl under the sink and ran water over it. About three seconds later it turned into a medium sized fish and started flopping around; my dad was amazed and scared. The next thing I remember I was at my grandparents' house and they have a pool which was fill with moss at the time, so I got close to the edge and looked down into it and saw some minnows at the very bottom of the pool, then a couple of big sized fish! Suddenly a larger fish about a foot long jumped out of the water and started chasing me around the pool so I jumped on top of a table to hide. The next thing I know I'm with my mom and my friend Marcos, And we are trying to find a place to hide out and get food since MOST stores had been robbed. We came up to a seven eleven and entered it only to be met by the store owner inside. He was aiming a sniper rifle from tf2 at us. Some how we beat him up and took his store. There was this honey candy stuff on a shelf that Marcos asked my mom if he could have some and she said no. On A Table behind the counter there were about 6 high lighters scattered around, some of them had their caps on, some off. But the highlighter caps had Lego faces on them, like Lego heads because they were yellow. And tatz et gyze, howp yew el.oh.eled!

I am a detective on a nightime city street, walking along and I see a poster of blade runner being shown at a club on a telephone pole. Except the name is changed to REP-LI-CANT and Deckard is wearing dark shades. I am ambushed by a man with a gun and he tries to assassinate me the moment I turn away, only I grab his hands and force the gun towards him. He has so many revolvers in his pockets I think I do this at least 4 times, with a gun in each hand being pushed away. The assailant finally dies. I walk inside the club and there is some sort of discussion about whether the manager hired that man to kill me, I can't recollect the outcome. Then I am with a shy girl with glasses in a plane on some kind of adventure to stop something from happening. I am tintin. She knows how to fly the plane, but gets too embarrassed and refuses to help me. So I keep narrowly crashing and eventually have to stop somewhere in the bush away from what I had hoped. The girl then runs away on the path, and I run after her. I use my knowledge that this is a dream to try and slow her down, but it doesn't work for more than a moment. I pass several people with signs for discussion boards, and they are having some kind of event. The path is getting muddy and at the end is a mud pit surrounded by hills. I dive towards the girl's foot and go headfirst into the mud. She falls into the puddle. I wake.

I had purchased several buildings on a US Navy base (like an officers' club, barracks, and an office building) somewhere, apparently overseas. My plan was to build a hosting company in these buildings, specifically by converting a gymnasium. The place had been hastily evacuated and was full of junk: furniture, clothing, medical equipment, and just garbage. The grounds were strewn with papers and cargo containers that someone had tried to load but apparently hadn't had the time before they had to leave. That or they were looted. There were also a lot of broken windows. I wasn't at all worried about the apparent defeat/collapse of the Navy and the first thing on my mind was wondering how I could justify keeping the swimming pool in the officers' club as part of my business...

I had just read some stuff about the Fall of Saigon so I think that's where this came from.

You're right about Finland the egalitarianism there, which is pretty neat. A whole culture based around it seems like a wonderful concept. But I'll hold my judgement on it until I one day experience it myself. However, according to translated news articles and Wikipedia Finland instituted a web filter on CP -which I'm okay with- but ended up using it to block the blog of anti-censorship activist in addition to CP. (And a hearing-aids site, too, somehow.)

I glad you mentioned Iceland, everything about Iceland seems to fit what I need perfectly! Plus they just threw a corrupt banker that helped cause the planet-wide recession in jail. However, I was told it's poor and has a lack of jobs, which I would sort of probably need if I am to become a citizen. Thank you!

Can Hikikomori Help Themselves? (52)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2007-01-31 10:40 ID:CvaHRzOk

I have just finished reading the third chapter of the book "Shutting Out the Sun" and I have some questions.

Do you know of any hikikomori in your area and, if you do, do you try and help them?

Would it seem unreasonable for hikikomori from the same area to help each other; form a group that just hangs out once a week to try and get out of the house or something?

I've noticed a few reclusive people here in Seattle and I was hoping to form a group like this to help, but I was wondering if there was some first hand experience at getting hikikomoris back into society.

Any information is appreciated.

Just had a good laugh... its the same for me.. funny thing is, making an effort to force myself (and I gotta say it was definitely an effort!), made me realize, that the only thing worthhwile to live for is people. As hilarious as that may sound, it's true.
However, to realize that, it took me a year in a foreign country and at first it sucked with social contacts and all...
Only in the second half of the year, when I became really involved with the people, their(extreeeeeemly) difficult relationships, did i have fun living again. I was a part of it, kinda awesome.
But guess what.. right now, since I came back, every holiday and after school I basically shut myself in my room and live a happy life through characters in a fantasy story... fucking stupid... so much for my effort
I'm right back where I started.. maybe even worse

But the only HAPPY thing or interesting thing to gain back the lust for life is still the ppl... kinda sucks

44 Name: Anonymous : 2011-01-08 18:53 ID:Heaven

>>43 is totally correct. Animals are social beings by nature, we feel deprived if we don't have contact with others. Of course, when you become aware of this fact, you realize it's only a feeling and that you can live without it.

That doesn't mean that social interaction doesn't make you feel good, though.

45 Name: Kiki : 2011-01-09 22:31 ID:gTVJ0T0R

Guess that's why I love my cat so much...

I just know, that even if you are a loner, without social contacts you'll just feel sick. The only problem is, that you'll have to feel good interacting with those ppl or your socalled social contacts, otherwise everything is just in vain and you'll go back home and say hello darling to your computer.

Gonna try a new start tomorrow, let's see were it ends...
Only thing is that school sucks...darn

Though it's still the only thing separating me from being a fullfledged hikikomori

I just found another job almost completely by luck, following having been out of work for a few months. Before that, I was a hikikomori who had only ever worked about two months in twenty-one years. It's going to be terrifying, but I forced myself to go the first day and, quite amazingly, finished a full shift. Even if it's just so I can have money to spend on rent, food, drugs and internet, I don't want to be a complete shut-in anymore...

Let's see how tomorrow goes~!

This my first time to write in this board, i'm not hikikomori but close, never have a job in my 32 years on earth, i worked as a volunteer for 7 years and i loved it, i was socially active, working with other people and meeting with them everyday, having fun in the weekends, but things changed, the organization i worked for changed and i did not like the change, many friends walked out and i did, in the end, after that i did not find any job, i tried to work as a freelancer but that's hard, so hard.

Now i don't like to meet any of my friends, i feel ashamed of myself, not "man" enough, useless, i just hate myself, that's why i prefer to stay away from people, but the more i keep myself away the harder it gets to go back, many tried to help me but they know as i know that I am the only one who can help me, if i'm not serious about changing myself then there is nothing they can do.

People want to feel that they are useful for others, want to feel that they are a part of society, for a hikikomori it will take a lot of effort to go out and relearn how to be social, but start with smallest step, going few steps outside home might be enough as the first step.

As for myself, all i need is to find work, notice i said "work" not job, and i'm working now on something to start my own business, it's been long 10 years and I've had enough.

Congratulations! You've taken your first step into a larger world.

I really understand how you feel. I'm a few years younger than you but I've never had a job either.
Did you live with your parents?

I still live with my parents, but this is normal in my country, parents don't let their children go, even if i get married and have kids i will still live with them, we are an extended family living in a large house, 3 generations live under one roof, it's noisy here but living with such family helps to keep people like me a little bit social.

Thank you for replying (^_^)

The answer doesn't lie with helping yourself. It's helping others that effectively distracts you from your misery, and makes you happy.

If you really can't find anyone to help, meditate. I recommend Alan Watts' method.

this song's words(English translation by site of translate)

All the things in this ground. To the valuable thing which I will hold if it changes with the time It was gathered capriciously whether it would be worthy of leaning truly. Graceful flower Kana which changes to such a wind which withered uglily the mere shadow of its self Also you very kind to
love which will continue for 1000 years Friendship which will continue for 1000 years Relief which will continue for 1000 years Although I desire happiness which will continue for 1000 years and it does not stop such a thing -- I am where
Even if the derailment accident of a train happens People's family and sweetheart who are doing by television news in the evening and who passed away When it knows coming in when finally their eyes are averted to sadness People become darling for the first time.
Not you but me who think was good Are you a too mean human being?
Love which will continue for 1000 years Friendship which will continue for 1000 years Relief which will continue for 1000 years Although it may be having seemed foolish the happiness which will continue for 1000 years Alive in you よどう
