I'm drinking, tonight, so I might as well post some results here and see when I wake up tomorrow whether I regret this post.

I've been pondering on whether men had, overall, a more deeply ingrained sense of masculinity in the generations of men that came of age before 1960, or if it's mostly my imagination. I don't quite mean exaggerated, muscle-shirt, steroid masculinity, or visions of sports bars filled with screens of overrated, ad-covered cars going in circles. But I mean a natural way of being; I mean a sort of solid foundation that a man's personality would be composed upon, being whatever he'd be, but without note of that resonating, innate quality.

You may hear a lot about what people were like in the generations preceding you in your family (if you listen), and if you're old enough, you may have met some of these people. Something I often hear claimed and something I observe myself is that almost all of them, in some way or another, are said or seem to be "men of their time". You look at - not just in old movies and shows - but in archive recordings, newsreels, even in writing at times, there's a quality that flows from these people... a masculinity that seems deeper in an essential way, and unique to the old world.

I haven't thought about this enough and I'm too out of it to compose a concrete theorem based on reason alone, but it's something that seems to be. I really don't know.

I've poked around a bit, and it seems that the "Hikikomori-Yume" username is shared across some other websites on older accounts by a similar personality. An interesting coincidence, if I may add.

iMac. Better screen, and if you do a whoopsy and spill anything worst case you’re just put a keyboard.

Go whole hog and get the Magic Trackpad too.

Okay then here is another question:
Should I get the latest iMac with an i7, or should I get an iMac with a dual core i5 for programming and making music then use a Mac Mini for rendering videos.

My thinking is I would use the mini for the CPU heavy stuff then the iMac for general computing/programming/music.
That way I wouldn't be slowed down while rendering a video.

I’ve been having some trouble doing music on my i5 but I suspect that has more to do with the spinning disk HDD and possibly ram. I don’t know much about these new fangled hybrid hdds they’re into now but I suspect that would help.

But if it’s in your budget fuck yeah get the newer beefier one.

You should do neither, and instead reveal the innermost machinations of the universe to us in a painstaking effortpost.

But what about when I'm rendering a video or doing something really CPU heavy?
Would it be better to have multiple computers for that situation, or would the i7 (six cores 3.2ghz) in the latest iMac be enough?
I don't want to be lagging for hours while trying to do other things on the same machine.

If I start a patreon and this whole forum donates thousands to me every month then I'll make a youtube series on how the universe and reality work with AAA production and a green screen with yours truly.

I don’t know much about video stuff but I’d think you’d have that happen on either. If that’s a deal breaker go for the 2 computer option.

But really, if you’ve got a two computer kinda budget just get that stupid nice iMac pro with the 4K screen.

Edit: and an external GPU

Looking back, a lot of the gaming-focused furry communities always had this elite clique of pokemons.

No idea why, but especially Eevees were always at the top of the chain. Harbleu of Overwatch 'fame' and his tranny queen were both 24/7 TF2 Eevee snipers. Wonder what about pokemon attracts both kids but also 'ironic' capable gaming furs.

This is funny to me because an Eevee would be easy to punt.
