I understand it's nigh impossible to live without involving at least some sort of identity politics in your life, so I'll just now say a few words on what you should build your identity. Not that any teenager will read this. At most I can hope some future parent will take these words to heart and teach her/his kids.

You should meticulously build a moral system of axiomatic assumptions on how you yourself should behave. As any axiomatic system, you should make sure for it to be as small as possible, while keeping it actually applicable in real life. Build anything else on top of it using logic. Make sure it's not self-contradictory, by overthinking it again and again. As any axiomatic system, there will be choices that fall outside it, but as far as they are few enough (p<0.05), it's okay, you don't need to bloat it. Be open to changing it. You will grow resilient to changes in a few years, so try not falling into this trap for now, and expose yourself to as much viewpoints as possible (read some fucking books, in other words). Then ground your identity in this moral system. Never ever ground your identity in some sort of group, because crowds are a whimsical thing. The crowd will change, and you will either look like a ideological zealot for following it, or you will feel betrayed for not being able to follow it anymore. As a corollary, never ever ground your identity in a characteristics you haven't chosen by yourself, like gender or skin color. I mean, it's okay to be proud to be Bulgarian or shit, but assigning such a trait too much importance means you are grounding your identity in "the group of people sharing this trait", as this group is usually easily identifiable - as opposed to, for example, mountaineers. This may be important to you, but make sure there are more important things. Oh, and, while we are at it, try keeping your emotions in check. Don't deprive yourself, but strive for some sort of a balance. Also, there's always somebody who likes you, so don't delude yourself that you're completely unloved. Whey, time to shave my white beard off, this rant made it grow to my feet in a hurry to fulfill the cliche.

[21:59:01] Reighe: meh
[21:59:13] Reighe: plan:
[22:01:58] Reighe: define lp(Г), define the distance, prove it's a distance, hence we have a linear structure, take cauchy seq, prove ||.|| is cauchy -> is bdd, prove the seq converges point-wise, prove the eventual limit is in lp, prove seq is precompact, prove the subseq converges to the eventual limit, prove the whole seq must converge to that limit
[22:02:16] Reighe: this leaves me with (lp,r) space
[22:02:27] Destructo: I have no idea what the fuck I am looking

[22:03:16] Reighe: mention Ekeland, formulate what I'll use, show case for 1<p<2, expand to any p
[22:03:19] Destructo: that proves that there is a distance
[22:03:25] Destructo: the distance is as long as you want to go
[22:03:39] Destructo: therefore the distance is a unit for imagination
[22:03:42] Destructo: or will power
[22:03:49] Reighe: hm
[22:03:50] Destructo: >eventual limit
[22:03:54] Destructo: it's about how you limit yourself
[22:03:58] Equilibrium: 2 deep 4 me
[22:03:59] Destructo: therefore the answer is in yourself
[22:04:04] Reighe: vreme da zapazq kak vi spamq nqkude na sigurno :D

ah4o0o: Sure it was personal drama, but for the audience it was basically presented as comedy so technically there was no drama in the episode.
erejnion: ok, so I am not a bad person.
ah4o0o: You are asking a bad person so you shouldn't feel good about it.

Girls on motorcycles

fufufu is back, by the way
Bakuon is an anime about girls who motorcycle. However, do note that it's not an anime about the motorcycles themselves. Nor is it an anime about the girls who just so happen to be in a motorcycle club. In other words, somehow Bakuon manages to do the specificity of "girls spending their time in an interests club in school" perfectly, striking the optimal balance between technical/mechanical details and character analysis.

Seriously, who the fuck would have thought such a thing can exist?

Social commentary

Shimoneta didn't actually start in an inspiring way. The possibility was there, but I thought they'd just keep to the comedy and harem elements. Instead, the whole series developed towards the social commentary.
Frankly, it's a perfect showcase of how to do this.
