What's up with Japan & dirty magazines? You'd expect them to be fully switched over to the side of the digital masterrace but in anime it seems like they're dragging along a shitload of legacy.

There's something charming about having physical copies of porn. Not everyone used to masturbate to their monitor, but it's not like nowadays' youth can understand. That being said, most of the time it's played for comedy.

Japan isn't as super high tech as most people assume it to be OP. they still regularly sold VHS up til a couple years ago. Piracy of any kind is a lot more harshly informed in japan. They don't want to go to jail over a wank.

The sweet spot for self-built PCs starts around $1000.

Unless you want to go there, you are better off with a pre-built for many reasons.

>>100067879
nice, though it pisses me off how carriers always do internet+texts contracts, never just internet+calls. If you have internet, you pretty much have texts too, via whatsapp and emails and stuff. On the other hand apps that do calls via internet aren't very commonly used yet
>>
>>100068210
You have to sign up to their email service (a bit like blackberry messenger) when you get a contract. Pretty much everybody sends emails instead of texts because of that. I thought it was just a weird quirk that they added to anime but it turns out to be a real thing.
