can any philosopher explain why the admin keeps creating boards on topics with no demand?

>>MO1UT3A4 (OP) you do not have to be the target audience for a board to be created. having a place for a little bit more well thought out posts is not a bad thing.

>>fb-P4FNA11Z → true, there is more thought into them than just created on a whim. for /lit/, there is no board on fchan that is dedicated for more thought provoking topics. they can post it on /b/ but can easily get drowned out by other things. /w/ is a place for higher quality images that others would want to have as a wallpaper. seems self explanatory. i get how it seems random. but its also fine to have slow boards.

Has ChOVID taken your learning ambitions away? Anonymous 07/28/21(Wed)05:24:32 No. 90GT0W3E [Report]

Seriously bros, I have had so many issues with learning recently. All I can think about is the massive deaths and I can't focus. How do you not let China take control of your mind and your ambitions?

Just finished reading 1984 Anonymous 08/04/21(Wed)17:10:05 No. PFHK1ASH [Report]

Good book, if a tad too lengthy. From the references of it I normally see people making, I thought it would be more focused on "SURVEILLANCE BAD" and "STOP GROUP THINKING", but from what I saw it is more focused on the everyday living in a totalitarian regime, and how people cope with the restrictions and adapt. Part 1 was alright, took me a few days to read. Part 2 was so boring I almost gave up reading the book, I even took a break of several months from it, but then I took a large spoiler that O'Brien was a thought cop and that picked my interest again. Part 3 was by far the best, I started and finished it in 2 days (due to time constraints, I almost finished in 1), I found the whole process of his "reform" very interesting. I like how the book has a bad end (although I guess from his perspective it was a happy end?), I wish I knew more literature like that with a non-heroic protagonist, I am tired of the same old "...and then the good guy beats evil and gets the girl and lives happy ever after the end".

I'm resourceful. I'm creative, I'm young, unscrupulous, highly motivated, highly skilled. In essence what I'm saying is that society cannot afford to lose me. I'm an asset.

What's your comfort book? The book you always go back to when you're bored or don't know what to read? For me it's Hatchet (picrel).

This is an always an easy read. Not too much of a commitment. Has a good atmosphere with dystopian corporation take over, interesting tech, interesting characters/dog What makes you like hatchet so much?

Anonymous 06/18/21(Fri)14:14:50 No. PZE3MW3P [Report]

>>LQ9O98JR It was one of the first few books and really enjoyed when I was younger, I've just kept going back to it every now and then. It's a pretty good book IMO, simple, but still good. Plus it has a decent amount of spinoffs from the ending of the story that are decent.
