Thread to discuss about:
Serial killers
Mass shooters
Any other kind of murderers
etc…
I made this thread because the other one currently online is exclusively about serial killers.

I don't know if we could consider as the live action of "Yu Yu Hakusho" as a movie. If not then that would be "Godzilla"

Oldest is probably "And Then There Were None"

The only visible flaw I could pick was its lack of backstory for the electric guitarist who wore his mother's face in Fury Road (considering the tone of the ending we'd end up with here).

Otherwise I was crazily flabbergasted all throughout. Movies like these only get harder to make as time goes by, so at least rent it if the epic landscapes and Peter Jackson flirting with Pasolini isn't your thing on the big screen.

Charles Bukowski, but you have to ignore all the succubi parts and focus on the solitude and life parts.

Check "You Get So Alone at Times That it Just Makes Sense", it's perfect for Wizards as you can tell by the title.

Yes it's a great place to start, most are short and interesting and only a few, like The Laws, are very boring and you can simply skip them.

The Republic is not short, but it's the best one. If you like that one, folow with Politics by Aristotle, he was Plato's student and he comments on The Republic on it.

After that, I suggest you check the Stoics.

Does anyone here do deadlifts? I'm thinking about working to get a god-tier deadlift. My first goal is to make it up to 405lbs deadlift and then see how far I can take it from there. Right now I can do 255 for 5x5. Any wizbros here with tips?

Right now I'm 80 lbs overweight and need to stop eating so much food. The problem is I'm addicted to food and since I'm a 28 year old virgin, it's not like I have much else to do so it's gonna be hard to cut back on the food. Does anyone also have tips on how to feel full and not feel the need to eat food?

Recently I've become fascinated with tessellation and spent the past couple of weeks collecting pictures of mosaics from around the world. Eventually just looking at them was not enough and I want to go deeper, understand the geometric shapes and its secrets better. Not even sure why but periodic tiling feels like a brain massage to me, like I'm about to fall out of bottom of how I usually perceive the world around me. So I picked up the book Geometry by Cambridge University Press. Feel free to give a hollow laugh: I honestly thought I could just skip the math part of geometry (yes I'm an idiot) and appreciate its resulting surfaces. While you can do that, if you want to appretiate geometry even at a surface level, you need to know the bare minimum of maths. The book suggested a good grasp on the basics of linear algebra and algebraic structure. I thought 'OK, I'll read the wiki entries as a lazy primer' and quickly realized I forgot even the basics of mathematical symbols. I guess it's true after all, if you don't use it you lose it.

Long story short, I'm currently going through Pure Mathematics for Beginners. The good part of being dumb is when you learn a single thing it feels like a whole new world just opened up and it feels really good.

So yeah, maths thread.

I'm the person who started this thread. Since someone bumped it I might as well say I kept going until reaching differential calculus. I filled about 2 notebooks with exercises. After that, about a month ago, I stopped with math focused books and picked up a textbook on electronics. It's amazing how much math helps in understanding things like magnetic fields and just electricity in general. I could even predict some of the behaviors on the theoretical part of the text. I really feel I'm making good progress, can't wait until I reach the meat of the thing and start reading schematics and study electronic components.

Do any of you know anything about US political history?

Why would the Mormon church endorse Al Smith in the 1928 US Presidential Election? This confuses me. I get that they may have related to Al Smith's Catholic woes, given that he was constantly attacked for his religion, but ultimately the Mormon church was and is very, very Republican. Not to mention that Al Smith was against prohibition, which would seem like a huge problem for the Mormons given that they were always super against alcohol and shit. Why did they buck this trend?

Here we discuss and speak of dreams that we had or the kind of dream that we would want.
We don't discuss of lucid dreaming.
I wanted to make this kind of thread as i do control them in how they will work but once inside i let the dream go and work his own doing.

Concerning a certain comic strip that I have dreamt or will dream, be it honestly, in a nightmare, or because existence is cruel enough to lie to me by making the dream too hyperrealistic to tell apart from reality until I wake up (or whatever convoluted detail I have yet to go through in the future from this so-called lucid dreaming/astral plane bs/cause I am unevolved enough to comprehend it all) I get it:

I can never return to it in a way I can agree with it fully in this life again.

Hopefully the last stage of grief can come sooner than later already and let the remains of this obssesion can finally die -.-
