The "Only One Solution" movement is fascinating, especially if you are/were vegan or have even a vague awareness of vegan ethics. They perfectly embody the absurdity of veganism when taken to its most logical conclusion - they believe that the only vegan world is no world at all.

They unironically advocate for global destruction and the eradication of all life as a "cure" for suffering.Their propaganda is so convincing that I'm shocked it hasn't gotten more press. Even in vegan circles I rarely, if ever, hear their movement referenced despite the staggering amount of unique content on the site.

The movement is a mega blackpill. Enjoy.

Every once in a while for the last couple of years or so I'll dive into stuff relating to superfund sites, toxic chemicals and chemical disasters, I also find coal kinda interesting too. Centralia, PA is a cool thing to google, fun fact its part of what inspired Silent Hill. I'm constantly searching for new docs and articles about toxic chemicals affecting people and the environment.

Image attached is Love Canal, which is like the OG superfund site and is basically the inspiration for all the stereotypical toxic sludge wasteland depictions you see today. This company used the land as a dumping site, and the land eventually got bought for $1 for the purpose of building homes, knowing what was buried there. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_Canal

I do this as well. It started out years ago when I watched the Hills Have Eyes remake and I became interested in former nuclear sites. This lead me to the Kyshtym disaster in Russia. From there I branched out from environmental disasters caused by radiation to other types of toxic waste. Reading how people have been made ill, born disabled and had their lives cut short is disturbing but it's also very interesting. At least in the US something positive came from Love Canal in that it was the start of the Superfund sites. There are places all over the world that are still contaminated from what happened decades ago and it's only going to get worse in places like India and China. I still watch videos on youtube about abandoned mines and look up places on google maps.

Sorry, didn't meant to sound so cryptic. The school board bought it for $1, built schools on it and then sold more of the land for profit later to a company that build houses on it (and promised not to build underground but did anyway).

i dont think that's exactly what they were getting at. they're right imo but it's dumb to actually want to destroy the world and waste time trying to work toward it. they were saying that it's impossible to actually live vegan, like, medicines aren't vegan, etc. they also said that nature itself is inherently suffering and that nature is fraught with disease, predation, it's just massive suffering for all animals (which is true), so they want that suffering to end, too. i understand what they're getting at, but to actually work toward destruction is stupid as shit. a lot of environmentalists think nature is beautiful, especially since we have the privilege of being able to observe nature without being part of it, but it's frightening as fuck and absolutely horrific.

Estonia was a horrifying one though, I still feel ill reading articles about it because it was so brutal with its death toll. So many things could've been done better to prevent the disaster, but at least we know better now and each disaster allows us to build safer means of transportation.

Second Life videos are amazing. Many people that play this game are extremely weird.

My current rabbit hole: I sometimes watch satisfying videos on Instagram and my explore feed thus is full of slime and kinetic sand videos, but also mukbang. I usually dislike mukbang videos, especially since they all have started to become more extreme with people eating moving octopus etc. What’s even weirder: I found a very active "chalkeating" community with people eating chalk or huge cornstarch containers. 50% of them seem to be Russian, the rest is middle-aged black women. I wonder why those groups gravitate towards chalk. They seem to have pica, but the way they talk about the chalk is very affectionate and sometimes it even sounds like a fetish. Really weird.

NTAYRT. ASMR encompasses a lot of interests. Some of it is sexual, IIRC the early ASMR videos on youtube were of Japanese ear cleaning and sex roleplays. Most of it isn't sexual, I highly doubt that anyone is getting off to binaural thunderstorm recordings or birdsong. ASMR is just a medium, in the same way that film is. There's films for children and there's pornographic films. You don't call the entire medium of film a sexual fetish just because some people choose to use it that way.

Source? I've been watching asmr videos since 2012 and I don't remember japanese sex roleplays.

Does anyone in this thread even know what asmr is? It is a feeling that not everyone experiences. It is non sexual and a soothing feeling in the back of your skull and spine. Normal everyday sounds can trigger it. The videos are just for triggering the feeling. I've experienced that feeling since I was a child (long before the asmr video community existed) and I know the difference between that and sexual arousal, just like I know the difference between hunger and sexual desire. People who don't experience it think the videos are fetishy, and some people do use them for that, but asmr (the feeling) itself is not sexual.

but this whole tangent started because someone said that they thought all asmr and mukbangs were a fetish and they judge anyone who watches. of course that’s going to start a derail, that comment isn’t even on topic to the post

Is feeling nice after a full meal or when removing your shoes after a long walk also "fetishy"? Take your meds.

It went on to chalk but mukbang and ASMR mirror fetishes with getting more and more extreme and weird shit (live octopus)

It depends on what sounds you're talking about…
I noticed that there are many focusing on the mouth of a girl while she's eating stuff and making noises (lots of slurping for example).

Search "imouto ASMR" on youtube if you really want to hear this. I remember first seeing these videos being posted on /jp/ in 2011-2012. A quick search on warosu confirms this. There was one video in particular that used to get posted on /f/ a lot.

>>401076
I could be wrong, how ASMR came to be popular in the west could be for entirely innocent reasons. The first binaural recording that I remember going viral was the virtual barber shop video but that was at least five years before I started seeing the term ASMR being used.

I ended up down the same rabbit hole a while ago, complete with the same Titanic real life sinking video, and the Estonia's story creeped me out so much. Iirc the bodies were never retrieved and there was a conspiracy saying the Russians were behind that tragedy

No. 401357

>>401331
I think it's pretty strange that they didn't retrieve the bodies, but I don't think it's a conspiracy. The ship had a bad design in the first place. Retrieving 800 bodies is a pretty huge undertaking as well, though I still think the effort should've been made. I really feel for the families who never had any closure without a body to bury.

i don't think rrcherrypie is asmr? i fucking hate "mouth noises" and people eating and it doesn't give me a tingle of satisfaction or whatever. i think the rrcherrypie vids are fun because they're adorable and don't have any music. the tiny gimmicky food is fun to watch her make since i'd never care to do it myself.

if it's asmr for you then ok but i don't think it'd be classed as such

I hate mouth sounds and am convinced it is a fetish for some people. On Japanese Youtube they even call ASMR a "sound fetish".

I like Goodnight Moon ASMR, her videos are really well made, she does a lot of fantasy worldbuilding with her characters and puts in so much effort into her content.

ASMR with an ice cream is definitely a thing.

No. 404110

>>404045
I like her vids too but they don't give me ASMR. It's relaxing but no tingles whatsoever.

On a related note, I hate overly done asmr vids. It stops being ASMR and turns into a cosplay with whispering. I have doubts that some people actually get tingles from that, Gibi ASMR is one example or Isabel Imagination is another. There are way more asmrtists than there used to be few years ago but there are still only a few asmrtists that are worth following.

No. 404115

>>404110
I get tingles easily so her videos are great for me. I like variety because after a while I get used to a familiar voice and they don't really relax me as much as they used to.

In that regard it's really nice to have more ASMRtists but many of the new ones half ass everything, are overtly sexual with creepy men in the comments proclaiming their love, just… whisper really loudly and think that makes it ASMR, or do fetishy BF/GF/nurse roleplays.
I like some of the weird ones that are very clearly nonsexual and are meant for girls. Old ASMRtists are still the best, WhispersRed is my favourite.

No. 404117

>>404115
I'm glad you do though, Goodnight Moon ASMR seems like a genuinely sweet girl and I like how she didn't give in to doing cringy gf roleplays or how she doesn't span Patreon links.

But yeah, a lot of new 'ASMRTists' are clearly doing it for patreon bucks now. I had some asmrtists that I liked but then they took that route like Valeria who used to make decent videos but now she's basically gone the cloveress way. Shame.

> Old ASMRtists are still the best, WhispersRed is my favourite.

I love high production value ASMR vids! Goodnight Moon has been mentioned before here, she does amazing videos that are very tingly and have high production value as well! White Rabbit and EphimeralRift (his are kinda creepy tho, admittedly) too, they make amazing vids that are super far out and are also very tingly! Or ASRMRequests and her unfinished "Departure" series which Heather Feather collab'd with back in the day!

No. 404144

people like Gibi, Darling, etc I feel like are so far removed from where ASMR came from. I hate pretty much all of their videos; they're well done, but just aren't ASMR to me and have never come close to giving me tingles. And people like Frivvy I wish would just fuck off already.

Most of my favorites ASMRtists are long gone like Heather, Hayley and VVV. Korean ASMR seems to be the only good shit left.

I think theres a thread somewhere for YouTube mukbangers, but for some reason I ended up watching tons of videos of people hating on Veronica Wang. I hate her. I don't even watch that shit normally.

On the other hand, I've been watching a lot of videos about poverty in my third world country. I'm so glad my parents had the will to leave to come to North America. My heart still aches for my people living in such a corrupt place.

I have no idea why YouTube gave me any of those suggestions. Possibly buzzfeed or vice if I had to guess.

I entirely agree. I also cringe at all the comments. Also, lol'd when Frivvy uploaded that recent video with her bf, and she started removing all the comments about thirsty guys having hearts broken and also about her nudes that leaked ages ageo. She's a shit person, but I doubt it will affect much the patreon $$$ she's getting.

ASMR sperging deserves a containment thread. ASMR is way too popular to be a weird rabbit hole, I mean it even has its own celebrities and stuff.

I went down the Mandela effect rabbithole a couple of months ago and it’s def strange as hell as far as communities go. Every once in a while I go down a different cult/religious rabbit hole. I’ve read/watched a lot of stuff on Scientology, Jonestown, David Koresh, Mormonism (especially FLDS and assorted extremists), spiritualists in the 1800s, Amy Semple-McPherson and the rise of evangelicalism, father Yod and the Manson family and the Process Church. Somehow religious and cult related topics just hold a ton of interest to me.

Sometimes I watch YouTube videos of people in third world countries cooking large meals. I have no idea how those ended up in my recommendations but they’re kinda satisfying

I was looking at a 90s/early 2000s style parody website. The kind that people used to make to be intentionally offensive and stupid using photos of ugly, deformed and fat people you know? And unfortunately one of the "bbw nude" people on the site happens to be no other than Hungry Fat Chick AKA Candy Godiva. This was before she was youtube famous for stuffing her face and was only doing straight up porn. Wish I could unsee it and Im going to link it here because if I had to see it, other people do too.

Ive been in a huge Mormon kick this past month or so. It all kind if started with book of mormon (the musical, not their bible lmfao) when i saw it live in January. I listen to a lot of pro and anti mormon stuff as well. Even went down a mini Shaytards rabbit hole yesterday trying to pick out the mormonism stuff they put out. I even get excited when i see mormon stuff out in the wild.

At this point I’d gladly follow a missionary to church if they came to my door knocking lmfao of course I still think its all bullshit, but its interesting bullshit that I just want to know more about

i mean as someone who was cyberschooled for a while i can absolutely confirm that there are some absolute nutcases that enroll their children in homeschool programs. mostly religion freaks that have a problem with every little thing being taught, especially in science classes. we used to have to complete discussions every few weeks that would require you to research a topic more thoroughly, and there were quite a few students whose parents would rather they get a 0 on all these assignments than admit the india famines were real or some fuckshit. would not be surprised if these children were being horribly abused. I know there are also plenty of children here whose parents are control freaks and sit by their side 24/7, and would embarrass their child constantly when sperging out at teachers.

I miss blowfly girl. I hope she's doing alright, I used to read her blogposts, I've found myself reading them again recently. She really interests me, this kind of eroguro/body horror/mutilation/sexual deviation stuff is very intriguing to me. She's maybe 40 now? She hasn't updated since early 2017. I really do hope she's alright.

Some annon mentioned how the youtube art rant community is a rabbit hole and holly shit it is. The community is full of 9 to 12 year olds and they have some petty middle school drama every week. it's made worse because since it's on the internet so art tweens world wide can dogpile on random artists without a teacher or principal punishing them. The only sane people in the community are teens or adults, like only 1 or 2 in this part of the community, who have to make hour long videos calling everyone out for dogpiling.

The worst I've seen so far was when some kid, I think 11~ish, accidentally doxxed themselves and their mom started asking about the doxx during a live stream.

Lolcow would love them, but most of them are underage so we can't post about them.
