What is Netalive.org?

Far from the maddening crowds, a place to kick back and lead an intelligent discussion in peace. We respectfully ask the braindeads to stay outside. (New here?)

Best Good All

My former employer, who is a wonderful middle-aged british lady who likes to read tea leaves and the ever-changing auras of her employees, said to me recently, "Betty, you need to read Metamorphosis." Since my new job is at a book store, I came across a copy and decided to give it a read.

After giving it a read, I have decided that I must have missed something because I don't get it. Dude wakes up as a giant insect, his family locks him in a room, he starves to death, the end. What am I (...)

Last night was the Sumida river fireworks display. It's the largest fireworks extravaganza to hit Tokyo each summer, and pretty much every single person in the city turns out to see it. Twelve different fireworks companies compete in all-out blowout of reds, pinks, purples and blue that light up the entire sky over Asakusa and stretch the entire length of the river.

In spite of how much of my life I've spent in Japan, I've never been here in July before, so this was my first time to see (...)

I think this is probably the most worthless and underproductive summer I've ever had, and it's completely my fault.

For the past two months I've been in one of those slumps which involve staying in bed, losing track of time to the point where you don't really even distinguish night from day and of course the internet, well at least during the beguining of it all. I had gotten probably the best job oportunity I've ever had and blew it because of Flash MX complications leading to me getting (...)

I'm back from my university induced hiatus. Thank you all so very much for keeping the house clean and keeping the signal-to-noise ratio as high as it is. There were so many great posts written while I was away that I want to break down and cry. I just read through and rated some 500 posts, most of them high up in the greens.

Also thank you for taking initiative and rating up all those posts to the frontpage yourself while no one was there to forward them there manually.

A warm (...)

Dear Dumb Ass,
I wanted to write and sincerely thank you for continually parking your friend's vehicles so close to my garage, that the result is my life being a tad bit more stressed. I would knock on your door. No that is a lie; I would just knock out your teeth. You've done this for so long that now I think you do it on purpose.
Obviously you know that we both live in condominiums, and all our garages are in the rear of the units. I wonder how you possibly miss the numerous letters (...)

Firstly I would like to say a big thank you to all those people who have encouraged me to continue writing. This is a follow on from ‘Scars of the Past’ and will lead in to ‘Difficulties Moving On’. I know I haven’t written them in order but I wasn’t expecting the response I have received so far and so wasn’t expecting to continue writing. Although ‘The Paths we Choose’ is a separate story an argument could be made to say that any event (...)
