Good day, and welcome to Bus Stop - a small talk message board. Each post remains on the site for only a day, after which, it disappears. Registration is not required, and small media files can be uploaded along with each post.

If you find this place empty, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's completely abandoned. Feel free to make a post to start a discussion, perhaps someone will see it and reply!

Bus Stop is intended to be a stress free environment for talking with strangers. Try to keep a relaxed demeanor when posting, please don't say or upload anything that might ruin the other person's day.
I hope we meet again.

Bus Stop uses an extended version of WakabaMark markup code for post formatting.
The basic features are as follows:
  • Surround text with * or _ to make it italic. _Like this_ or *like this*.
  • Surround text with ** or __ to make it bold.
  • Surround text with %% to make a spoiler
  • Make an unordered HTML list by beginning each line with *, or -. You can add line breaks in list entries by breaking the line and indenting the next line with one or more spaces.
  • Make ordered HTML lists by beginning the first line with "1."
  • Make quote sections by beginning each line with ">". Highlighting text and then clicking the post number will quote the selected text.
  • Make code sections by indenting each line by four spaces or one tab. Code sections get shown in a monospaced font, and are not otherwise formatted.
  • Make external links by just typing the URL you want to link to. Post references like >>0 can be created by clicking the post's number and are automatically turned into links. You can link posts from other boards like this >>>/test/#0. The first youtube link in the post gets embedded, unless the post has a file attachment.
If you want to make a large post with complex formatting you can test if everything looks right here.

Please fill the subject field with clearly defined topic when it's appropriate. It not only allows to browse this site like a regular image board by filtering the posts with the same subject, but also serves another purpose. Subjects have a longer lifetime than posts, it means that even when subject's thread is empty, it stays in the list for several days since the last post. In case this board is empty, this should help a new user or a person who hasn't visited the site for a long time to understand what kind of things were being discussed recently.

SJIS art can be displayed without any special formatting, as required proportional font is used on Bus Stop by default.
Bus Stop supports uploading of the following file types:
  • Images: jpg, png, gif.
  • Video: mp4, webm.
  • Audio: mp3
The maximum file size is 16MB.
EXIF data is stripped out from the images automatically.
The board's look can be customized from the options menu, which is accessible by clicking [+] in the bottom right corner of the sidebar. Available options are as follows:
  • [theme]: switches the visual style of the site.
  • [Mona]: enables the Mona font. If your browser has problems with rendering it, turn it off to use a system font.
  • [⟳]: enables auto reloading of the page each 90 seconds.
  • [?]: controls visibility of the info post.
Options are stored in your browser's cookies, be sure to enable them, if you want to save your settings.

I've been working on this silly scavenger hunt idea for a few months. It'd be an internet age hunt where you're given a starting document which sends you searching for specific words and lines in books and web pages to try and make the next document. It would start off simply but things would get more challenging and puzzle-like near the end, including needing obscure facts about historical figures which aren't commonly available through a web search, only in deeper historical works.

Lately I was listening to 90s minimal techno while programming. For me this is unusual, as I always preferred music with strong melodies, but I enjoy it. I like how something so repetitive can almost place you in a different state of mind with a simple beat.
Does anybody know is there any platform that has plenty of mixes with old electronic music? I only found two good playlists with this stuff on youtube so far.

I wish i could get more into jazz but it seems like most of it just doesn't excite me, Sounds too unfocused and messy.
This album is gold though.

Tonight I played Halo custom games for the first time in like 15 years and it was the best night that I've ever had ever since I left high school. I didn't even know the guys I was playing with but we had such a blast that I could almost tear up from the amount of joy I'm feeling just remembering it. Good night.

MCR were pretty good. They kinda get a bad rap because of the other trash their teeny-bopper fans tend to like.
I work with a guy that's like 25 and listens to all that emo/pop-punk shit, and he has the gall to make fun of my taste in music. Dude, you like music meant for 12-year-old girls in 2006. Where the fuck do you get off making fun of what anybody else likes?

YouTube has a lot of nice mixes, you could try the Mix-Up album series, especially Ken Ishii, Takkyo Ishino, and Jeff Mills mixes. Mills is definitely one of the best techno DJs of the 90s along with Surgeon. You'll probably like Basic Channel as well, but you likely already know them. For current active DJs you should go to Soundcloud, there are countless podcasts for every little genre where DJs get featured some of which are mirrored on YouTube, like HATE, just find an account you like and dig through their reposts and accounts they follow, eventually you'll build a nice feed.
