Cell phone operators were expensive when they were new, and their prices eventually lowered.
But at some point prices started to go up.
What was that point, in your opinion?

Have you ever felt after reading anonymous post "Oh, what a cool poster that is", but later remembering that it was you?
And vice versa - at first you were "It's my post", but later - "Wait, it couldn't be my post"?
In short - have you felt depersonated on imageboards?

Slavic women do take the piss when it comes to makeup. I would even suggest that all the stuff they plaster on is the chief cause of young babushka syndrome.

You're completely wrong. Slavic women have access to normal makeup and skincare for less than 30 years. Young babushka syndrome came exactly from that time, today even 30-40 year old women can be hot

Have you at any point had a countryboo phase? (If you feel that way still there's no shame).

Who was it and what exactly did you like about them? Your reasons can be complex or shallow, it doesn't matter.

I'm way more interested in your posts because mine is going to suck. I only did this in high school.

First it was Scotland and this honestly wasn't from muh heritaging. I started to play as them in Medieval 2 total war and the style of their units really appealed to me. I remember thinking the voice actor that informed me of things was the only one in the game that didn't sound like a faggot, and he sounded so mean whenever we won.

Then I really liked how they formed pike walls against English cavalry. We watched some documentary about the French and Indian war, and there was a very costly battle for the English where they tried to capture this fort all day and were getting slaughtered at the wall, the video made it a point that a unit of Scotsman managed to actually make it inside the fort and hold their position for hours. Well that made me tingle in history class. It was overall really shallow, I think my angry insecure metalhead teenage self just found them masculine because of a videogame. Thankfully I never even watched Braveheart until after this phase was over.

I think their are similarities. Swedes like their queues, so do brits. But in Sweden, they queues are more subtle and not as readily visible to the outsider. Swedes aren't as direct and in-your-face as Germans, same as Brits. You can talk bullshit in it's purest form and voice the most retarded opinion, and a Swede or a Brit won't call you a retard. The Brit will pretend to agree and backstab you later, the Swede will offer a foul compromise.

>The whole mentality around things being clean and tidy was also, I think, a reaction against the austerity and horrors of war
This is an angle I hadn't considered-why American pop culture was so squeaky clean. Viewing 'Father Knows Best'as a finger in the ears denial of complex emotional issues is worty of more attention (later, I don't want to derail the thread any further.)
Your point on America and Germany seen as post war victor vs vanquished also has me thinking about how they both moved to change. The Civil Rights Act was looking within to demand better of ourselves(for Americans); while rolling across borders can be viewed as Germany looking at the outside world as the problem. Again, I'll have to think more on that later.
I appreciate your response to my elaboration, as well as your original post calling out my knee jerk thoughts on history. If I can get away with lazy analysis, it's a slippery slope into sh*t-posting.

Swedes are (or maybe used to be, i don't know if they have changed recently) overly polite, Anglos only appear to be overly polite.

Backstabbing vs. seeking for compromise. That's pretty different.

>Etiquette (/ˈɛtɪˌkɛt/ or /ˈɛtɪkɪt/, French: [e.ti.kɛt]) is a code of behavior that delineates expectations for social behavior according to contemporary conventional norms within a society, social class, or group.

British etiquette is largely based upon the same formalities as Swedes such as personal space, silent disapproval, overly elaborate dinner party ritual etc. This is why our humour is similar as we both enjoy the farcical elements that result, hence why British comedy remains popular in the country (https://www.thelocal.se/20061219/5854).

I also object to our class system being presented as something it is not. Workplaces have hierarchy but our social contract centering on the jury trial has always been anti-authority and brimming with protestant frugality. You have fundamentally failed to grasp the intricacies of British class relations or why British and Swedish societies remain divergent over the question of individual/communitarian thinking.

So to summarise, you're either trying to get my tits or you really are this thick. Neither of those option btw is a good look as you're expecting me to fight you over who is Sweden's bf.

No. The only thing it might change is cook time and the sauce. A large zitti is going to taste different in that regard because it will be full of sauce as opposed to fettucini which will have less sauce taste.

and found this video of him (unavailable in UK so accessed via proxy) with huge grotesque looking nose. he had some cancer on his nose or something?

This is why you need to get frequent checks for skin cancer. I had a small basal cell removed before it got bigger and saved myself from the fate he suffered.

The mood is just different. The shadow of EC's death lingers very heavily here. I can't put my finger on what it is exactly but it just feels off to me.

>>1870
Probably not but I can't say I'm one of them. People complained a lot about it being a 'chat room' and I recall a lot of butthurt from certain posters about it, but that environment fit well for me. It was nice to be able to touch base with people I basically knew without the commitment of usernames and accounts. Without a hint of irony, it was my social life. EC2018 was just another imageboard.

That's exactly how I felt about EC2018 and more so imageboards in the olden days. I hate the long-term commitment of real social bonds, but IBs at their best cater to my intermittent desire for conversation. I appreciate purpose EC served for you but it seems contrary to the structure of IBs which are more conducive to the type of sporadic posting I described.

But ultimately it's a pretty unimportant matter.

Getting more sleep. Reading books I had lying around for ages. Practicing the guitar after years again. Cleaning up after me instead of living in filth. Cycling. Going for walks. Started a morning and evening routine of simple exercises. I spend time shopping for groceries and cooking, instead of just ordering pizza and boozing in front of the pc. I am also more chilled at work and get much less easily annoyed by interacting with my coworkers. If I really feel up to nothing much I watch a movie. But nowadays just go to bed afterwards instead of argueing about it on the webs for double of its length.

I feel much less depressed and on edge all the time. I might even get gf if I stay away from imageboards. It was great while it lasted, but to be honest, lurking is just as toxic as any other drug.

Don't blame lurking for all of your problems. Almost everything is bad if you do it all the time, even playing guitar and cycilng (by the way: are you me?). You just need a healthy mixture of hobbies in your life. If one gets annoying, do something else. If it's late, just go to bed, don't take this stuff too seriously. Enjoy the opportunity to talk to people from around the world and to share your interests with them without the need to show your face. If this causes any harm to you, then it's maybe just your habits, and not the thing itself.
