any wizards into chess too?
it's quite interesting with its unlimited options. a way to escape the bitter reality, as well.
what's your elo rating?
your favorite openings with white and black pieces?
how much time do you dedicate for chess usually?

Yeah gg. I think I'm not ready for rapid 10 minute games yet since I end up rushing and making poor moves. My brain can't work fast enough to strategize and outpace the clock.

lol wtf.
Can't play against nameless people who might have different worldview than yours?
Don' want the witches to think you're some normalfag when she sees you playing it?
You were only enjoying it because it made you appear unique?
A rise in popularity among any demographic won't change the game at all. It's not like the creators of chess are going to rise from the dead and tack on POZ'd politics and loot crates to the game. Rejoice that you'll have more people to play against, especially those who may be new and bring some out-of-the box tactics to the playing field. As long as you keep track of your ELO score somehow you won't be sludging through scrubs.

How to train your dragon

Well animated movie, with an excellent story that has relatable and believable characters that you care about, cool quirky dragons, amazing action scenes, and thrilling music. The theme of strained father and son relationship because of the wimpy son who failed to meet the expectations of his manly alpha father, the leader of his viking tribe, and the ostracism brought on by this wasn't my cup of tea, but it was well done and you could feel for the kid.

It also has this cutie who is the male protagonist's love interest that I fell in love with.

As someone who really enjoyed the first two Terminator movies, this is very distressing to read. Unfortunately I'm not surprised though.

Thread dedicated to digital and internet privacy talk.

Recommend literature and software, discuss any news on the topic, provide advice.

In this day and age when the presence of Big Brother, be it governments or corporations, is particularly felt, I'm ashamed to admit I possess an utterly basic knowledge of everything related to privacy and protecting your identity on the Internet.
Personally, I'm not computer-savvy, but would like to know more about any privacy measures and what goes into them. If anyone could provide good resources on the matter I'd appreciate it.

i dont think so. it is all done by your browser. they shouldnt know what website its viewed on. wizchan is a static site too. they would know your ip though since thats literally how you view anything on the internet, otherwise how would they send shit back to you

What I mean is: they can know that someone (my IP) is loading a wizchan page because of the specific combination of thumbnails my IP is requesting. Which combinations of youtube videos are shown on the pages here is publicly available knowledge; there is no reason to believe google doesn't have it.
By knowing which pages I load when and applying their knowledge on my writing style and all, they should even be able to make reasonable to very good assumptions on what I am writing here in addition to knowing what I read.

They do. Even if you just load the thumbnail it sends the referrer and some cookies with the request.

"The Book of Disquiet" is poetry to my soul

 No.57206

All poetry but "golden" authors like Pushkin, Poe, Shakespeare appeals to people with certain interests/tastes. Due to poetry "speaking to the soul" it's really hard to advice something, so, read-what-you-like applies to poetry really well

Any fellow enthusiasts here? I'm into wood carving and metal working stuff and like anything related to knives and multitools or EDC related stuff. I personally have a Victorinox Climber and a cheap chinese Multitool plier and that's enough for my uses. Also have a generic fixed blade knife that I learned to use for different stuff like wood carving, opening cans and other home stuff. I mostly use them at home when doing stuff in my garden

Yes, every week during summer and autumn. It would be unhygienic not to, because it's used to cut wild fruits or apples for lunch. If it's all stainless construction it should be easy to clean like >>57069 implies.

Leatherman are glorified, overpriced trash. I've seen the metal saw getting dull after being used and the tool itself full of rust. Also the scissors of some models have a factory defect that makes the spring to break even if not used

I've made it a few times. I wait 3 weeks until its fully mature. First it gets very acidic then it balances out. Already the brine and the dry salty pieces of cabbage taste good.

Red curry paste, coconut and peanut butter is the base of the sauce.

I'm thinking about earning money through vending machines. Let's start a thread about vending machines, from hobbyists to those that profit from them.

You can't. They're all owned by the big industry and no one's going to put your machines in place over a big companies.

Where do you live that this is true? I live in the third world and an acquaintance claims he has a vending machine gig that earns him roughly 30 USD a month

30 USD is chump change. And a third world country is likely to see the machine stolen from isn't it?

Vending machines are not a hobby and no one puts them up as a hobby.
You are asking about job advice which is by default not a hobby.

Why did you think it was remotely reasonable to put this thread here instead of lounge?

 No.57139

>>57135
See what this person says about vending machine gigs.

>>57134

"Chump change". Its by no means a job, much less a way to earn a living.

Also I'm sure there must be people into vending machines as a hobby just like there are train hobbyists or whatever that thing is called

Do you have any plays on the market?

Wanting to gamble and lose it all?
Here is the thread for all things related to capitalistic degeneracy.

I want to because I always hear stories of easy money, but I just know I'll be one of the people who lose it all on the stock market.
