Is there a term for a weeaboo-like person, who, instead of loving Japanese culture, loves Russian culture? There ought to be. I'm talking about the motherfuckers who read Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky, who play Metro 2033 and Red Orchestra, and watch Stalker and Come and See. Hell, they may even own a Mosin-Nagant There's gotta be enough of them out there for a label to exist

You are given a choice: Put the whole of humanity (including yourself) into matrix like state, where super advanced AI will run a simulation of life with maximum possible happiness on each brain until heat death of universe. It will be impossible for any human to discover they are in simulation, and I probably don't need to say this but this option will keep humanity alive longer than if we'd actually live our lives in real world. Would you do it? Yes would seem to be the obvious answer to me and I'm really interested to hear the opinions of those who would not.

Short book on inequality

So /lit/ its my first time here. I was hoping someone could recommend a short story/book with inequality being a prevalent theme. I have to write a book report for tomorrow afternoon and I've let it slide, and the book I was recommended to read by my teacher is too long to read in that much time. Thanks in advance

Any one up for a discussion of Pale Fire, beyond just saying 'yea' or 'nay'? Some read it thinking Kinbote is the king, but I think him and Gradus were both deranged... I still don;t know if John Shade was a real person or not... or perhaps that was Nabokov's point, similar to his Signs and Symbols...

I have gone through the recommendations and I havent found out shit, except that Hero of our Time and Heart of a Dog are Novellas. Well, I am currently 20 and I struggle with my life. It's that point, where you have time and strenght, but no fucking idea where to point it at. I have no mentor who can show me the way and so I seek wisdom in books. Recently I read "The Element" from Sir Ken Robinson and it was very good for me to read it, now I literally stumbled upon "Dirty Little Secrets" from Kerry Cohen and I plan to read it and "Loose Girl" and "Easy" as well (even thought they might be somewhat similiar). The problem is: These books are about sex and female teens that can't cope with their life. I seek sex too, but I never had it and I am male. This a topic rarely talked about, especially in this shithole called The Internet, and I can't find books about it. TL;DR I search books about boys and/or girls in their twenties who are stuck and dont know what the fuck to do with their live. Extra Points if they are depressed and find a way out (except suicide)

Alright. Need opinions on this. My opinion? Interesting take on an apocalypse situation, but still, a bit childish in writing style. Held my attention full way through, and was quite interested. I say 7.

What's the coolest title to a book you can think of? Ignore the content of the book, take only the title. I've always thought East of Eden and Atlus Shrugged sounded really impressive.

>In a world where all is unstable, and nought can endure, but is swept onwards at once in the hurrying whirlpool of change; where a man, if he is to keep erect at all, must always be advancing and moving, like an acrobat on a rope — in such a world, happiness in inconceivable. How can it dwell where, as Plato says, continual Becoming and never Being is the sole form of existence? In the first place, a man never is happy, but spends his whole life in striving after something which he thinks will make him so; he seldom attains his goal, and when he does, it is only to be disappointed; he is mostly shipwrecked in the end, and comes into harbor with masts and rigging gone. And then, it is all one whether he has been happy or miserable; for his life was never anything more than a present moment always vanishing; and now it is over. I think hope is perhaps the strongest inducer of happiness but I also think an excess of expectation can trap you in "continually becoming and never being". How do you find a balance? What is a healthy amount of optimistic expectation and joyful anticipation about the future?

Can /lit/ suggest books about recovery? Or non-fiction books on ethics debunking utilitarianism? Pic somehow related. >Koala Photo Shows Forest Destroyed By Loggers, Animal's Heartbreak After Losing Home >The little guy wandered back to his home in New South Wales, Australia last week only to find it had been cut down and chipped by logging operations. A volunteer with WIRES, a rescue operation licensed by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, said the koala had been sitting on top of the wood pile for over an hour looking confused, the Daily Telegraph reported. >He was later taken to a local veterinarian and released near an established colony, but the heartbreaking photo shows some of the hardships faced by the animals over the past few years. >Severe habitat destruction and the spread of a deadly chlamydia outbreak have decimated populations and the Australian government declared the species threatened in some areas for the first time last year.

So after finally getting around to watching the last two Harry Potter movies, I reread the book series, and found myself wanting more. Can you tell me if there is anything similar to Harry Potter? I mean more magical academy stuff. I haven't read much fantasy stuff, only the Harry Potter seires, some of the Wheel of Time books, and a series about a boy who can go to different worlds/realities and sends messages to his friends via a ring. The name escapes me at the moment.

Hey /lit/ let's play a game. You must draw a writer and the guy below you guess who's the author. I'll start

What are your thoughts on this, /lit/? Currently reading. I am unsure of my total feelings about it, but I definitely enjoy the Canto/Commentary structure.

So what does /lit/ think of William Vollmann? Personally, I'm mixed. I read his novel "The Royal Family" about a month ago. While I didn't hate it, it had enough flaws that I wouldn't recommend it. On the other hand, he fascinates me as a figure. Reading about what the guy's done with his life just astonishes me. Also, his work ethic is so ridiculous that I can't help but admire it. I'm thinking about trying out "Europe Central". Is that worth the effort?

Can anyone let me know how to cite a quote from a website in APA format? I'm trying to take a quote from the Department of Justice website, but I can't find it anywhere.
