Normgroids do ruin communities but that is inevitable. If it is so bad, try to go on obscure fourms/imageboards where you know the userbase is autistic and is not open to outsiders. Better yet, learn japanese because westerners are annoying. You shouldn't let others dictate what you like, just isolate yourself from them. Also try manga/obscure japanese games/non-OEL visual novels

>>229465
But that was his problem in the first place. Interacting with normalfags. Normalfags (IRL Friends etc. etc.) are the ones posting "dank maymays" and other garbage which does not lead to a suitable community. With imageboards (excluding 4chan, as that is just reddit 2.0 now) and other obscure sites you get a better sense of a community that does know their stuff and can generally relate to "otaku" culture more than other westeners.

can an adult learn from 0?is it possible to get a job or trade with programming or web-designer skills?
i eagerly await help and advice,im needing income

Programming isn't really a job you can learn once and you're golden. If you truly want a career in this field, it has to arise out of genuine interest because you're going to be spending a lot of time tinkering with complex systems and making them work together. Anyone can learn the basics of programming and follow programming logic, it's just that when it comes to writing code, certain kinds of people do better than others and it isn't related to intelligence as much as it is related to personality.

Having said that, you have millions of tutorials on youtube, as well as millions of premium courses on torrent sites. Anyone can learn, provided they spend enough time doing it and like I said, this personality trait of exploring on your own, figuring out how complex systems work, finding solutions, being a "tinkerer" etc. is a vital part of it.

I'd say start with python or javascript to learn the basics (codeacademy), move on to basic algorithms and data structures, then explore in directions you're interested in. Other than programming, to be a competent developer, you really need to understand how computers work from the ground up. Usually, a CS degree or something similar does a good job of giving you that foundation, but for stuff like web development, you can sort of get away with not understanding the lowest level of the machine.

>certain kinds of people do better than others and it isn't related to intelligence as much as it is related to personality.
I am sorry if this sounds like a whiny lazy ass asking for shortcuts because he doesn't want to put in effort, because it is, but do you have a way to develop this "personality" you're talking about or for how someone not suited to programming to cope with it better? I don't think I have the personality for programming. I was expecting something like maths but I find programming tedious and boring. I am kinda stuck studying an IT related degree and I am desperate for a semi well-paid technical jobs where I don't need to interact with people as much so programming is my only chance at that. Do I just have to willpower through it or what?

The last thread died a while ago, but I’m still interested in this topic. What do wizards think about castration as a wizardly body modification? I myself am castrated as of a year ago and for the most part I enjoy my new life as an eunuch. I’d also like to discuss penectomy and genital removal in general, if anyone is interested.

Big fat non sequitur. Having balls doesn't mean having sexual desire (and the sexual urges you're obviously implying it does). Making that leap of logic, which seemed to come to you very easily, just shows that you're a in-cel underneath it all. Balls aren't the reason you aren't a better christain, your soul is. It's rotten to its in-cel core and you can't cut that off. Too bad.

Remember the succubus who says Trump and Epstein raped her when she was 13 who then went away because she got a bunch of death threats and her lawyer was hacked? Well, Ronan Farrow did some investigating and found out Michael Cohen was in contact with AMI and they were working to keep her quiet. So at the same time Trump's personal lawyer was trying to silence this succubus (via a company known to use hacking, blackmail, and extortion), she received a bunch of death threats, and her lawyer was hacked.

Just another one of those dang coincidences though I guess, right magapedes? Just like it was a coincidence that another of Epstein's victims said she was recruited while working at Mar-a-lago. Just like it was a coincidence that Trump has known Epstein for years and indicated he knew about his preference for young succubi in the same breath that he called him a great guy. Just like it was a coincidence the guy in charge of communications for mar-a-lago was arrested for uploading child porn to a Russian site. Just like it was a coincidence that those two campaign chairmen of Trump were convicted kiddie rapists. Just like it was a coincidence Trump owned a modeling agency that illegally used foreign young teen succubi without a visa. Just like it was a coincidence Trump walked in on the contestants for the teenage beauty pageant as they were changing and stared at them for a while before walking out. Just like it was a coincidence Trump has literally dozens of ties to the Russian mob which operates the single largest human trafficking and child pornography operation on Earth.

Reminder over 20 other succubi have accused Trump of sexual assault as well. All of this fits a pattern. Trump is a pedo, he is a rapist, he raped a 13 year old succubus. Whoever Epstein worked for has the tapes. Trump knew about it and had the succubus silenced. Trump is selling out American foreign policy interests left and right because he is a pervert and a traitor who is controlled via sexual blackmail.

Made an inadvertently idiotic post on some random website the other day and, perhaps rightfully so I guess, got called a retarded cunt over it, among other things. It just still hurts is all. Both being viciously insulted and not being able to recognize & prevent making a buffoon out of myself due to my own unconscious, or I guess overt as the case may be, stupidity. It's kinda crazy how, in certain instances, some people will literally tear you to shreds over the most minor of offenses, either because they're simply bored, a cruel sadist, or both. Even in this instance though, my dumbness was more a lack of me not paying enough attention, so, again, I might have deserved being called out for it, but being ruthlessly shit on to boot just felt uncalled for. Think of it like the ostracized kid who tries to make a joke he thinks is funny, but is then laughed at incessantly when it falls flat on its face, ultimately only making himself look like the joke in the process. Being a weak, out of touch, pathetically fragile individual really is a death sentence when it comes to living on this horrid planet. Either way, I'm really too much of a sensitive pansy when it comes to the internet. I've known this for ages, but I just can't seem to help feeling deeply hurt when someone is needlessly mean or cruel to me. I'm simply a wimpy snowflake. Always have been and probably always will be.

So did I, but I don't have time to waste now. My parents are getting older, my father is already fired for being too old, the family savings are decreasing steadily, and there is no such thing as bux in a third world country. I am too much of a coward to die. I have to integrate to society. I have no problem with masturbating my whole life away if I never have problem with money but I do. Spending 4-8 hours on porn a day is disadvantageous to this end, perhaps even exclusive.

A tumor was found in my father's brain and now he'll probably die and I'll watch him slowly decaying as the piece of filthy flesh all we are.

Every year I get worried for a whole month before my birthday because of this shit. I fucking hate these calls. I've turned off my phone a few times in previous years but I didn't really like doing it and they just ended up talking behind my back about how weird I am for doing that.

Any NEET wizards out there who also get birthday phone calls from relatives? Do you answer your phone? How do I deal with getting a bunch of calls from all my uncles, aunts and cousins (all of whom I almost never talk to/meet throughout the whole year), asking about my life, what am I doing on that day, etc, while I've been a NEET hikki for years?

This is a familiar feeling. I don't enjoy getting phone calls on birthdays and holidays, and I'd sometimes flat out ignore them or keep them very brief. I'm not NEET, but there's really nothing to talk about and I hate feeling compelled to engage.

It's just the same recycled questions along with some newer tidbits that I cannot spare a fuck for.

I would be content with getting a good day, money, alone time, and alcohol on "special occasions." That's all I want.

If this shit really bothers you, then just frankly state the lowliness of your life and there's no point rehashing the same questions. Maybe they'll finally go away.

It's nice of them to remember me and all, but I'd prefer if they would just text me or even just call my parents (who I live with) and tell them they wish me a happy birthday. I just can't stand having to answer these calls by people who I only see once a year or sometimes even less.

>If this shit really bothers you, then just frankly state the lowliness of your life and there's no point rehashing the same questions. Maybe they'll finally go away.

I'd rather not, most of them probably think I'm a normalfag (or at least an unemployed normalfag), and I prefer it to stay that way. Mostly because of my parents but also because I would probably end up getting bullied by my cousins and my chad uncle at Christmas or other family reunions.

Funny to see a thread like this, since my birthday is actually tomorrow. I never get any calls, nor do I wish to receive any. I live alone with my mother and, as a result, my birthdays are a pretty quiet affair. She just hugs me and wishes me a happy birthday and gives me a birthday card with a gift card in it. My brother was actually here visiting us the other day and they, him & my mother, both offered to take me out to eat and to go see a movie as sort of an early present, but I declined, which I could see visibly disappointed them, but they understood. It just felt way too anxiety inducing, the thought of going to places like that, so I just couldn't do it. It kinda sucks because I wouldn't have minded going to see Joker, but, again, it's just too much trouble. Frankly, the arrival, and prelude, to my birthdays does nothing, but depress me. I'm more decrepit, am older, have less time, less energy, less hope for the future (etc.). Nothing, but a reminder of all the time I've wasted & what a bleak dismal joke my life has been. Why should I celebrate being born, anyway? Shit's the worst thing that ever happened to me, after all. Maybe if it were called my deathday it'd be different. I'm one year closer to death & the eventual end to my miserably pitiful existence. Odds are I'll probably just end up sleeping through most of it, anyway, since I've been going to bed at like 2:00-3:00 PM lately.

Anyway, as someone who suffers from moderate telephone anxiety, I'm quite pleased by the fact that no one calls me. Besides my mother, and very occasionally my brother, I haven't spoken with anyone over the phone in years.

I'm changing the scope of the board's general slightly this time. Let's discuss anything related to video games that don't deserve their own threads.

Any wiz here ever made something with RPG Maker? I'm seriously considering taking a plunge for the next year and make a serious attempt at making one RPG Maker game. The thing that is stopping me is thinking about better gaming engines like Unity and how far would I get in those if I spend a year messing with them instead.

Pepper makes a bowl of canned chicken soup better. I never even thought of doing this before until people who gave me food after taking blood served me soup and gave me pepper.

My dream recall rate has been on the downward for quite a while but of the details I have been remembering, a recurring theme is cats. Friendly cats coming to cuddle with me. I don't know what it means. Also, I've discovered perhaps the trigger to concentrate on to be able to tell when I am dreaming and it is lightswitches; they either do not function or otherwise function improperly in my dreams, need to keep note of that.

The radio part associated with my "Nation's Broadcaster" is heavily biased to the left. Just like every and any random free indie newspaper I ever see when I wander around at night.

Thanks. I've been adviced this before but it can't be repeated enough.

One thing I find hard to forget is a video I saw some years ago, set in Sao Paulo I think, about some well-off-looking boomer tourist couple walking down the street. A pair of young guys ran up to them and fancy camera hanging around the old man's neck and sliced the band with a knife. The old man tried to yank the camera back but got a swift punch in the nose. The other robber grabbed the boomer wifes earrings and basically tore them off almost together with the ears, she squealed in an inhuman voice. Then the robbers simply jogged away with the camera and the earrings. This looked to be the middle of the city on a busy street with lots of people walking right past, nobody even reacted.

I remember the video well because it made such an impression on me. Makes me think that someone could walk up to you and casually murder you for your shoes in broad daylight on a busy street and nobody would give a fuck. Pretty scary.

Unfortunately security should be the prime concern in this country but no one seems to actually care about it. Like anon mentioned, don't leave any of your shit exposed and you should be fine. Also don't leave anything valuable or bags/backbacks visible inside cars otherwise they might break into it.
Make sure you know where you're going within the city or have someone you trust with you to teach you the places you shouldn't walk into. Also don't forget to lock all your shit.

It's important to note that these things vary a lot depending on the specific city and/or neighborhood, there are actually a few incredibly safe places in Brazil, but almost all of the sizable cities are really bad in terms of crime.

Overall it's not super bad once you know how things work and know to be vigilant when necessary. My parents love Paraíba for the beaches and have been there a couple times. If I'm not mistaken João Pessoa feels more like a smaller city compared to most capitals in the Northeast, and the people are nicer. Even though I say these things, I've lived in Brazil for 30 years and I've never been mugged or had anything directly stolen from me, but crime is all around and is a reality I have to acknowledge and live with.

A friend of my dad got kidnapped and robbed in Brazil in a similar way in the 70s. The retard went well dressed in the street with his watch showing (making it clear he was a tourist) and passed by some no-go neighbourhood and two men suddenly took him inside a car and stole his money, watch and shoes and threw him on the street, it was close to a favela. Fortunately for him he was left alive and wasn't harmed beyond the struggling

It happens here in some parts of Argentina as well, particularly in the region known as Conurbano, although in a street full of people is kinda rare

dropped out of high school after failing 11th grade twice, been neet ever since

 No.161028

Throughout most of grade school, I had some of the highest if not highest grades in school. I had a lot of people I talked to, but I'm not sure if they could have been considered friends. I think they just talked to me because the school was so small and there was only so many people one could have a conversation with. Like today, I never spent any of my free time outside of my room. I'm still in university, but I'm doubting whether or not if someone who did poorly in school can be considered an outcast. Being smart (or at least just getting good grades) makes one hated by others. If I had gotten worse grades, I would have been popular. Getting bad grades (and better yet being a dropout) makes you really cool in the eyes of a lot of people. So to anyone ITT that didn't/doesn't perform well in school, you should use that in conversations more. People will like you as you'll be seen as a badass.

Any Wiz here interested in Stocks? I've been having fun on a practice account with questrade building my own portfolio that simulates the actual stock market with pretend money. I do have a couple hundred saved up that I'm thinking of investing sometime soon as well. When I signed up for the account I just used a fake name and throwaway e-mail, and for the phone number I used questrades very own support number.

Now would be a good time to move your money to something else that won't lose value in a crash. Stocks are over-valued. Traditionally after the bond yield curve inverts, stocks do extremely poorly, losing like 40-60% of their value usually. I think they will lose less this time thanks to the decimation of the treasury bond market as a viable alternative, but to be safe you should get your money out of stocks now.

just look at the demand for negative yielding bonds right now in Europe and tell me a worse financial collapse than anything we've seen before isn't coming. There has never been this little slack in monetary policy before. They already switched to loosening monetary policy after only a single year of tightening it after the last recession. The truth is we never even made it back to baseline growth trend levels from the last time. There are dozens of other indicators like global manufacturing. We know that this time it's going to be even worse than it has been before because they can't just fix it with monetary policy. We've been kicking this can down the road for a while now, the entire financial system is a scam, it is inherently unsustainable. All the intervention by the central banks did is keep alive a system that was designed to crash for a little bit longer but it can't be sustained forever.

For a more technical analysis that actually goes into details on why to expect a crash you can read this:https://www.hussmanfunds.com/comment/mc191009/

Especially important to note is this part
>Low interest rates don’t “justify” elevated stock market valuations. Rather, the combination of low interest rates and high valuations simply implies that both stocks and bonds are priced to produce similarly low future returns.

This is a common misconception, yes driving money out of the bond market will inflate stock prices, no that does not mean low interest rates automatically guarantee higher returns on stocks. Once the assets are already inflated, they have nowhere to go but down in a crunch.

Even if this bubble will inflate a little bit more, there is little to lose by pulling out now. There are many many signs of global economic collapse at this point similar to the great depression.

Also take a look at this article:
https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/oct/16/global-economy-faces-19tn-corporate-debt-timebomb-warns-imf

This period of super low interest rates only caused banks and corporations to take on more and more even riskier and riskier debt. Global debt to GDP ratio is higher than it has ever been before, therefore the crash will be worse than ever before. The IMF is saying if it's only half as bad as 07, over 40% of corporate debt will be insolvent. This is basically systemic collapse levels if it gets as bad as last time and there are indicators that it could very well be or even worse just based on converging bubbles like auto and housing just in the US alone. China is important, yes, but the US is even more important as it is the world's financial powerhouse. The global economy has become so interconnected that it's only a matter of time after Europe goes into a recession that the US will follow. China is reaching the limit of the currency devaluation and real estate bubble schemes. They're having trouble containing capital flight as they devalue the currency meaning their economy will fail. They are the prime driver of economic growth for the entire world because they are a developing country that just so happens to have 15% of the world's population. This means big markets and big opportunities for everyone else. All the economic policy of all the world banks seems to be coming to an utter inability to stop another crash.

This is why I say this world we're living in is crazy. We can protect against all sorts of natural disasters by building dykes and floodplains for example, but we are unable to stop disasters of our own making. Unable, or unwilling. I suspect it's the latter because every time the economy crashes, yes lots of people suffer, but some people gain immensely at the cost of everyone else by exploiting their desperation. Each time it happens, power and capital consolidates in the hands of fewer people who become richer and richer, until they become nothing but disgusting monument to greed and callousness to the suffering of otPost too long.

In primary school I was bullied by 50% of the students in my class.
In middle school I was bullied by 75% students of my class.
In high school it was once again 50% of the class.

By bullying I mean being bullied by one person at least 2 times.


Does it mean that potentially 50% of the people of earth are my enemies?

I did have to leave one once because of it or I was probably going to get fired anyways. Basically it was more undermining me to shift the blame to someone else if I happened to be around or on a register when it happened. Or I would have impossible responsibilities to keep up with as one person in a short amount purposely piled on to me and then someone would draw attention to it and try to get me in trouble for it which didn't quite work so I got written up the most for solid things out of my control. My current one isn't too bad up front, there's just a lot of shit talking and you never know whats being said. I only know because one dude who of course quit told me at the time.

Has anyone ever yelled at you from a car before? It definitely feels and seems like bullying. In reality some very young guy is just yelling at whoever he sees on the street for the lulz, with his friends doing it to and egging him on. The reason why people do this is because its fun to see the reactions and it gets such a quick reaction and easy rise out of people.

I strongly disagree with what you said about boundaries. It's just a step from "you just gotta stand up for yourself" bullshit.

Standing up for yourself doesn't matter because ultimately it's just a number's game. You want to stand up to that guy who is hurting you? Next time he will bring friends. You think you're a hardass who can take on five people? No. Being bullied or not is not about being too weak to fight back or not. It's about being chosen by the social group to be the target. There was one hardass like that in my middle school, knew some martial arts, but 5v1 they still got him. Every single time. There was a succubus. You know the type, bright, organized, from a better family than the rest of us. Trying to do the right thing, wanting to help the starving people and generally save teh world. She stood up to the bullies, she got into her head by a hammer. Don't know what happened to her afterwards. Don't care.

Obviously the things I mentioned might seem a bit extreme, but I am from eastern europe. Things are different here. That I understand and just for the record I am not trying to say that people who got bullied in a less physical way didn't really get bullied or anything like that, don't get me wrong.

It just really insults me so, so, SO deeply when people claim bullying is the victim's fault for not fighting back.

I have come to this conclusion based on how in my own life I have observed how all my suffering seemed to always be very targeted and timed at the right place and timing, at first I suspected narcissists and or other forms of sadists in my life might be conspiring against me but I have concluded most of the events targeted against my emotional, mental and physical wellbeing are too well timed and planned out to be organized by humans.

Does anyone else suffer from this issue? It seems to me that I have trouble constructing sentences when I am talking to people in real life, and even I get my words mixed up when I talk to myself on camera (I make video journals for myself). The issue gets worse when I argue with someone and my words get slurred. I am jealous of people who can quickly form sentences while I need sometime to make up those sentences. I see these same people who can make fluid conversation and I sometimes wonder if there is something wrong with me. It's like they know instantly what to say and how to say it.

A bit of history: When I was a year old I suffered from a seizure that delayed my ability to articulate speech until the age of 7. My mother told me that when I was 5 I could only speak a couple of words. I was in speech classes in school up all the way to 6th grade.

How does one improve speech?

Does anyone else treat what should be entertainment like a job?

Whenever I play a game or watch a tv show or a movie, even when I enjoy it, I feel like it's a duty and I can't focus on anything else before I completed my backlog. I have this naive thought that I will start being productive once I ran out of games to play and movies to watch. It's like I'm afraid that I will miss out on something important. That some piece of entertainment might somehow offer a life changing experience.

Anyone can relate and theorize idea why that is?

I tend to put autistic prerequisites on even getting to my backlog in the first place–like, "finish organizing my desktop", "configure this video player to be perfect", or even just "do this chore". It comes down to two things: first off, in my brain, I feel unsettled unless I've gotten all of the other things checked off my to-do list, and secondly, I also have this autistic sense of perfectionism where I positively can't enjoy something unless it's in the most optimized environment, and in the most perfected way. I guess as a recent example, I started playing some emulated games–it wasn't enough for me to just sit down and play them with the controllers I had on hand, I –had– to buy a controller specifically for it, and I did a ton of research to make sure I bought a good one, and even then I spent hours autistically tweaking it when it wasn't to my liking. It's hard for me to explain, the simplest way to put it is I guess it's just OCD. Anyway, I tend to be too lazy to actually do any of this, so I just take the neutral route and brainlessly browse the internet.

Even when I get over these autistic hurdles and actually get to my backlog, it just feels like a chore. I find it impossible to select from such a huge list of media. I end up conflicted as to what I want to play or watch–do I play this thing that I think I'll find fun, especially if it's a really long game that'll keep me from getting to other games on my backlog? Should I prioritize games I've spent money on? Should I focus on the "classics" or notable titles I've never played/watched/read before? I do have that sense of wanting to partake in it all "before time runs out" like >>204335 says. I don't like feeling like I've missed out on seminal titles. But, as soon as you open yourself up to emulators or pirating media, suddenly your backlog expands to become nearly infinite. Lastly, even when I DO pick something to play, I just feel stressed out and try to beat it as fast as possible so I can check another game off my list.

As far as games are concerned, I think Steam is the biggest contributor to backlog syndrome. Prior to it, games were fucking expensive, and when you did get a game, you'd cherish it and play the shit out of it. Now, between Steam salePost too long. Click here to view the full text.
