Who else here can read shit written in other languages even if you don't know how to write/speak them? I'm spanish and I can easily read stuff in french, portuguese and italian. Never studied none of them.

I'll start with "yummy mummy"
Which Philosophers do you think represent each individual 4chan board best?
/mlp/- Weird sexualised view of horses so Nietzsche
/r9k/- Absolute disdain for all women-Schopenhauer
/ck/- Epicurus perhaps?
is the book worth reading?
Yeah, it's pretty fun. A lot of anons here talk about reading up on the politics of Russia at the time to get into the Brothers S but it's completely unnecessary. They're just enjoyable reads.
Roadside Picnic > S.T.A.L.K.E.R. > Stalker
What books would you recommend for an impressionable 18 year old such as myself? Thank.
“The first of our kind has struck fear into the hearts of America,” announced one commenter last year on the giddily offensive /r9k/ board of the notorious, anarchic site 4chan. “This is only the beginning.

Can we have a discussion about this? I just finished reading it and none of my friends have, would like to hear others' opinions on it.
I don't read many books, but I am glad I had the chance to read this one.

The ones that left me in tears were: The Sorrows of Young Werther, Crime and Punishment, The Doll, the abovementioned ISoLT.
