    Do you guys even lift?

    I have a problem with my blood pressure and anxiety-related issues which makes it difficult to exercise, maybe a few push-ups and a run every now and again but nothing above that. I feel physically sick and get headaches if I do it for too long. I eat as healthy as I could but given I'm Scottish that statement means very little. Besides, as long as you aren't a morbidly obese Reddit moderator or some scrawny skeleton shitposter then you're doing alright.

    Get It Off Your Chest

    Basically what the title says, just say what you gotta say. I'll start: Lately, I've been feeling low. I'm not the smartest or cheeriest of people and I don't really do much. All I seem to do is take and take with no real purpose. Things aren't as fun as they used to be and I don't really know what to do.

    Get It Off Your Chest

    It's been busy lately, confusing and frustrating. I'd thought I'd make this thread so people can let loose for a bit and take out their anger. For me personally it's that feeling of never being good enough, that you'll always be five steps behind. But instead of addressing it you just bottle it and keep your head down. People crave validation and when we're deprived of it we crumble. That combined with the COVID crap going on with Boris and its misery. So, what about you?

    What "Lost Media" are you interested in?

    The Japanese stuff that never got imported to the West and put the side of some random shop. Walk into any media store in Japan and I guarantee there'll be boxes full of the weirdest shit you've ever seen. There are thousands of them around, the rabbit hole goes on forever: posters, gimmicky PS1 and PC games, neo-futuristic kitchen utensil devices, creepy random ROM discs, the PC Engine, forgotten anime. It is madness.

    DA FUTURE

    It's the future! Well, present. It's the 2020s! Doom Eternal is out, the future of the franchise is bright. The Gaming Industry is practically dead but Indie games and modding communities are still keeping it going. Overall it seems quite bleak to me. Seems strange to feel nostalgic over games like Grand Theft Auto V, 2013 was 9 years ago. What stuff are you looking forward to and dreading in the future? Also, the long-awaited sequel to Eggthread is coming soon

    DA FUTURE

    In terms of creativity and new ideas. A few exceptions with Nintendo and some Sony devs maybe, but that's all I can think of.

    Happy New Year lads! (or should I say new decade) It's been one hell of a decade, so much has happened it's so hard to list it all! it's been a pretty enjoyable 10 years, we've had a lot of great moments and a lot of bad moments but cheers to the next decade lads.

    New Year 2022

    Happy New Year lads! 20 minutes until the new year, 2022. Even just saying it sounds surreal, time flies by so quickly. A lot has happened this year and it's finally coming to an end. Let's hope next year will be different. I'd like to say thank you to the members and staff for being so great. You're all incredible. I wish everyone a great and happy new year So as is tradition: May I request that on UTC 12:00 (12 O'clock on January 1st 2022), raise your beverage of choice to the sky and say 'happy new year!' Cheers

    Happy New Year Doomworld

    The end of an era.
  14. So, recently I have become very interested in Greenland. It's the world's largest island and home to the Greenlandic Inuit. They are similar to the Alaskan and Nunavummiuq Native Americans and are also genetically related to Siberian groups like the Chukchi. They make surprisingly good music, Nanook and Sume are both popular bands and their folk music is incredible. The fact that they've managed to survive in such a harsh climate is fascinating, and their culture is also very interesting. I like countries, they're cool and fun. So let's discuss them!

    I don't mind being called British, but I am NOT English. I'm Scottish. Scots have fought against the English for over a thousand years, it's true most Scots have English ancestry (I have some from Hertfordshire) but most have a very strong Scottish identity. Also, I am a bit tired since I haven't slept since yesterday, so excuse any grammatical errors. Might just be me being retarded too. Norf FC memes are real, take a walk around Manchester or Newcastle city centre and you'll see what I mean. Uneducated footy shirt-wearing hooligans storming down the pub. I'm a Glasgow Rangers fan but my mum's side supports Celtic. Glasgow is very serious when it comes to football, their heart and soul belong to their team. The history, the music, the politics. It's brilliant. Speaking of politics, politics are a complete joke. Never believed in any of the shite those psychopathic bastards say. People need something to belong to and look up to otherwise it shows the reality that their country is a complete mess. I don't drink Mtn Dew very often, too many flavours and it just tastes like slime. Rootbeer and R.C. sound tasty, heard of Moxie but Fitz is new to me. I'm not loaded so usually I just drink diluted blackcurrant juice or water. Always wanted to visit Missouri, it's an underrated state. My dream is to do a road trip from Florida to California, then gradually go up and up from coast to coast until I reach Maine. I heard there is a national park in Montana next to the Blackfoot Native reservation, quite scenic. Evansville looks nice, a lot of history. I played through a bit of NV but haven't gotten around to Fallout 3 yet, Capitol Building is an architectural masterpiece. Honduran food is delicious too. David Bowie I feel is a little overrated, a great musician and an icon but his music can be a droopy for me sometimes. I like hard rock and roll, Oasis and so on. Jazz is good but I find it hard to get into. Never been one for music, good for partying and setting the mood. Can't read music either, never played any instruments. But Bob Dylan is fantastic. American music is fine I suppose, except the Pop and Rap crap. Japan does things a lot better than America in all things imo, cuisine, social etiquette and architecture especially. Osaka is like the Japanese equivalent to Glasgow, rough but charming. Whereas Tokyo is like Edinburgh in that it is the posh financial and education capital of the country. I come from the northeast of Scotland, a quiet place. The farthest I've been from home is Blackpool which is a small seaside town in Lancashire, England. Only ever leave home once or twice a year to head out to Perthshire for the markets or Kirkcaldy for some fresh air. The people can be a bit mental at times but that's just Scotland in general. Ignore them and they'll go away. It's good when you're a tourist since all you see is the good bits but it's shite when you're a local and have to put up with neds. Ayr, Kirkintilloch, Kilsyth, Hamilton, Dumfries. Not many job opportunities around so people move to the big cities or abroad. I like things local and simple, big cities just seem too confusing and posh for my liking. But I would love to visit someday. Again, please excuse the grammatical errors.

    Fucking hell, they really have no shame. I don't get why they think it's okay to do this shit, it all centre's around their little circlejerk of elitists with no respect for other people. Boris got caught at the Downing Street Party AND a 'business meeting' where he's eating wine and cheese. Oh, and also he lied about the flat money. Oh, and Hancock refers to himself as a hero in his book. Oh, and also one of the Hull Labour MPs openly tried to gain fake followers on Twitter. It's beyond a joke, it's fucking obscene.

    Just an average day in Glasgow. Jokes aside this kind of shit really is sickening. The midlands have a lot of beautiful places but it's frequently ignored by politicians. In Scotland, it's normal for grown men to have little to no education. The pandemic has only made things worse. I live on a council estate but even I have standards, ghetto life is miserable. I've seen it before and it's grim. But no, politicians are more concerned about their image than they are about the people. The UK is getting worse, and it isn't just statistics on a spreadsheet. Go to Hull or Manchester or Bradford and take a look at the almost third-world slums people live in. Appalling for a first-world nation.

    Fucking hell, that's the population of my city. How does it get to that point? We're the 5th richest and yet we're stuck with a bunch of elitist oligarchal bastards for a government. Just two weeks ago, Boris was jabbering on about Peppa Pig World. Yes, fucking Peppa Pig World. In Scotland, there would be a national outcry about this, but in England, this is just seen as 'normal'. An absolute mess of a country. British "humour" just isn't funny, unless it's like one of those jokes which are so bad it's good. I prefer Scottish humour, early seasons of Still Game. But that's just my view on it. I get how others can enjoy it.

    I'm from Scotland, part English too. I've never really liked England either for this reason. Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield, Carlisle and Liverpool are the only cities I really like, Exeter and Cambridge at a push. Growing up, England to me looked so dull. The speech, the weather, the houses, the food. It's all so basic. Even the telly was shite, who the fuck wants to watch Tipping Point? I'd always prefer to watch Scottish TV and movies over English media. I don't think it applies to all of England, the north of England is beautiful and is distinct from the south in many ways. At least with northerners they know how to have a laugh. Can't even say 'hello' to a Londoner, they're like robots. The food I don't mind so much, better than eating potatoes every day. I think this more so applies to industrial cities, in Hull I met a guy who had similar experiences. Got the shit kicked out of you if you looked 'off'. Poverty is a severe issue in the UK yet the government do fuck all about it. Then you get a bunch of angry poor chavs running around causing problems for people. They try to copy gangsters from America, too 'mature' to just enjoy things but too 'cool' to stop acting like a fuckwit and get an actual life. Glasgow has a lot of this, neds getting into gang fights threatening random folk with knives. The sectarian bullshit doesn't help either. Suppose there's good and bad parts everywhere.

    Douglas Adams, he's the guy who wrote Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy right? I'm as dumb as a doorknob, but I read from time to time. I have an old scuffed up signed copy of one of his books, got it for 50p at a local charity shop. Should probably read through it.

    I'm from the north of Scotland, which has a strong Irish demographic. During the famine and the industrial era, a lot of folks came over here to work in the textile industry. I'm not sure if it's true but supposedly my grandmother had an Irish surname. There's an entire area in the western part of the city that was designated for them, they were seen as undesirables by the rich. The impact of poverty and deprivation can still be seen today sadly. I like the Irish language, it sounds nice. Almost fantasy-like in a way. I would say wait it out until next Summer and head over, try not to fall for any of the tourist traps in Dublin. Cork is nice as is Donegal. Hope you enjoy your trip! I don't get it, why is Wales called Wales if there are no bloody Whales? How is Swansea by the way? I've heard of it but have never been. Is it like Glasgow? I see, well it's strange how Italians are always depicted as wine-loving gangsters. I get the Mafia are rich but don't they ever fancy a pint or a glass of milk sometimes? Rarely do I ever see a Mafia character in a cartoon drink something other than wine, maybe a martini but that's about it. Beautiful place, but which part?

    Cool video, but at 12:34 you called the language script 'a satanic language'. It's not, it's used for several different native languages across Canada. It was created to help Aboriginal Canadians with reading due to high rates of illiteracy, which was highly successful. A lot of Nunavummiuq people I know use it alongside English. I think the Cree and other various Inuit peoples use it too. The majority Native Americans/Aboriginal Canadians tend to use the Latin script like we do like the Haudenosaunee, Mi'kmaq, Cherokee, Navajo etc. Ontario's a cool place, I hope to go someday. Is it true Italians drink copious amounts of red wine, or is that just a thing you see in the movies? You never see a mafia boss with a carling or a pepsi, it's always a glass of some expensive wine.

    If you are going to go to Scotland, I would recommend going to Edinburgh and Dundee. Both are good cities with a lot of history, nice architecture and cheerful people. Scotland has some rough places but you only really end up in them if you do so on purpose. It is a nice place and the culture of the Scots is great. Highlands also has brilliant countryside. Fun fact: Hawaiians are descended from Taiwanese Aboriginals who migrated south to Oceania then sailed to Hawaii. Same goes for the Maori, Rapanui, Tongans etc. I've always wanted to go there since it's what everybody thinks of when they hear 'tropical paradise'. Brilliant place. I don't blame you, American politics are tiring. To me, politics is just a confusing mess that is out of our hands. I'm not a very smart guy but I know not to mess with that sort of stuff. Yucatec Maya regions of Mexico look quite nice, indigenous Mexicans are underrepresented imo besides the Aztecs of course. Mexico is a brilliant place, go for it. Wait, Messi is with Argentina now? Didn't know that. Argentina is a very large and diverse place, I would call it the Canada of South America since it's basically Brazils southern twin. Beautiful country, Tierra Del Fuego is glorious. Selk'nam are also very interesting people. Where is that? I don't know of many Mexican states besides that one that drinks too much cola. (Chiapas) It is, I quite liked the last thread so I hoped to try and replicate it again. I've spent a lot more time studying indigenous and foreign cultures so hopefully I can provide more perspectives. I remember there being that one Karakalpak guy, he got me interested in Central Asian culture. Kyrgyzstan also looks really good. There aren't many places to discuss stuff like this besides maybe YouTube, and Doomworld is quite a diverse place so it's perfect for it. I should probably get to posting more Doom related content but I don't really know what I could add really. Anyway, let's discuss! Same here! Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Tianjin, Shanghai, Fuzhou, Chongqing, Hangzhou, Harbin, Kangbashi, Suzhou, Harbin etc the list goes on and on. It is a beautiful country albeit with political flaws. I hope to travel across it someday, but it is very very expensive. Guzhengs are cool. Romania is a nice place, Bucharest seems nice and Transylvania is the home of Dracula. We need countries in order to give us a sense of belonging and togetherness. It's an integral piece of your identity, can't take it away. Canada is also nice, British Colombia looks incredible and I've always wanted to travel to Ontario and Nunavut.
