do any wizards like tea? specifically loose leaf teas? if so, any specific blends or varieties you like/recommend?


i recently got into gongfu brewing and it's pretty much the only thing i've been thinking about these days. i found this hole in the wall tea shop in the chinatown in my city and purchased a shou pu'erh tea cake that i've been picking away at.

Is any wizard interested in practicing the ancient pre-christian polytheistic/henotheistic religions like Greek or Norse paganism? Have you ever tried to commune with the Gods?

These are the people who believe it. They are called Reactionaries.

>>60401
i don't think you know what being a reactionary is, you have to be dictacted by reacting against something in order to be one. they are only bad because they offer no solution to counter the things they perceive to be problems and that everything will fall in their place once that problem is solved, like marxism and national socialism.

pagans are usually the ones to like a hint of platonism during worship, with a focus on feeling good via the contemplation of nature, the air of mystery amplifies that effect, but once you experience contemplation of the Truth via Lectio Divina, paganism becomes boring

Any other wizards into combat sports?
I have done Krav Maga (2 years); it was ok but I can see why people say it’s overrated. Did some BJJ at an MMA gym but it was expensive as fuck. Boxing was the best so far; nothing has tested my fitness, strength, timing and precision like boxing. Class was always all male.

Really want to try Muay Thai. What other fighting styles are wizards into?

I am 100% with Khabid when it comes to ring succubi.
They are totally unnessary and what they are payed is retarded when that money could go to the fighters. Some promotions literally pay the ring succubi more then the fighters, which is insane.

I think it is has been long time that such leaches on the sport should be banished and for the fighters to be payed even better.

I had so much fun reading Super Sons, even managed to get a few laughs out of me. Wasn't expecting to be that good considering the main chars are two children, but it made me eat crow, it's well written and the childish aesthethic art synched perfectly with the comic.

The Last Duel. Don't waste your time, just imagine a shameless copy of Rashomon but 'fixed' by the usual suspects to conform with the requirements of the ruling ideology.
As I watched it I got a creeping feeling that this must have been written by a w*man… a w*man of a very particular race characterized by huge hooked noses.
I regret to inform you that I was correct.
Here's a synopsis for you: men bad, stupid, violent and rapists. The Church bad and rapists. The indigenous European royalty and aristocracy bad and bumbling idiots, probably rapists too.
W*myn smart, funny, brave and stunning. Men can only succeed or do the right thing when controlled by w*myn. W*myn should rule the world but men use violence and rape to hold them back. Believe all w*myn. #MeToo.
Europeanism very very bad and you should be ashamed of being an oppressor, goy.
Fight choreography is predictably trash. Brief battle scenes are depicted as usual: two loose mobs run into each other, the lead actors proceed to flail their props at armored extras who are reduced to blood-spraying corpses with a single blow. The final duel is slightly better in terms of treating armor as more than plastic props, otherwise it's mostly a display of useless chopping moves. Hollywood-y cling clang bullshit in glorious motion blur shaky cam. A staggering 10 second segment of the fight has both characters half-swording and not being retarded. Striking with pommels and crossguards is shown twice. The final part of the duel features rondel daggers which rarely appear in movies.
Running time 133 minutes, perfect for masochists. Thank you ZOG for taking a Japanese classic and making it unbearable in every possible way, very cool.

Hello Wizzies, what podcasts do you recommend? i enjoy going trekking while listening to some relaxing podcasts to distract me.
I am currently listening to this one about the history of Japan and it's role in WW2

as someone struggling with mental illness, I really enjoy the mental illness happy hour. the host actually talks to people via email and gives a fuck. most of his interviews are normie as fuck but some have really interesting back stories. I plan to be on there someday to talk about my journey of autism and MDD/PTSD to neetbucks

I remember seeing that in the listings but something about the descriptions and episode titles made me think it was just more progressive propaganda using the the meaning of psychology as a weapon.

If I am totally wrong I would be willing to actually give it a chance.

Carlin is fantastic. One of the few podcasts I have to sit down and concentrate on. Too good to listen to while occupied.

>Joe Rogan

Not overrated. He can be a bit annoying but he is very down to earth and "real". His deep curiosity, style of questioning and layman perspective make him the perfect guy to talk to interesting people. And he interviews/chats with MANY interesting people. He has 1600+ episdoes, many 3h+ long, and I've found out about many amazing ideas from his podcasts, despite the fact that he is a "meme" for lack of a better term. his podcast is my favorite because of the sheer amount of interesting discussion, guests, unfiltered discussion about edgy topics, and the way the conversations are very natural (nothing like MSM interviews)

>Trash Taste

3 youtube ecelebs talk about life in japan, otaku culture, and talk shit about life. they are normies through and through, but it's nice to listen to a good quality podcast about otaku culture with 3 friends that have excellent chemistry

>VORW

reviewbrah/reportoftheweek's podcast. very comfy feeling, the guy is a wizard through and through, totally owns it, lives how he wants. lots of varied discussion with mildly interesting perspectives

>extremities

podcast about people and places that are extreme, such as isolated islands. talks about how they live and what life is like there. nice window to another world

As good as the expensive vodka you just need to know how to drink it and you will get the cheap stuff after all it is all made from the same stuff with different water added and even the real distilled vodka is just not worth paying extra for.
Anyone who pays extra for vodka instead of buying colored spirits is an idiot.

Mostly just beer because spirits are too expensive where I live. Wine is also as economical as beer but I don't like that.
If it didn't cost more than twice as much to get drunk from vodka, I'd buy that all the time.

 No.60545

I drink domestic cheap shit, like natural ice and budweiser just like you, but I really like Hams but I never buy that it's too far away to the store to buy it. My go to is Natty Daddy malt liquor. Occasionally I enjoy a bottle of wine at about the $10 price point. Chardonnay is my favorite, wet chardonnay is really good. I do enjoy a good drunken sloppy afternoon… but I got these social workers that come over and you can't be drunk when they're here hardly. They start to ask questions and insist that the 'medicine isn't working properly'. I suspect that's just my third world shithole though, cheers with bud as well

there's an import store here in USA called AJ's Fine Foods.
they sell a Polish Porter beer called Zywiec for $3. it has 9% alc content and tastes like coffee.

two of them will get me as drunk as possible.

but, it's rare i do this because these very dark beers are much harder on your body and it made me develop gout.

i'll usually do bud light 30 pack if i'm not ready for the hard dark stuff, as bud light is much easier to process and never flares my gout.

I'm still working on this. I was trying to get a limb hacker in, but I gave up on that for now. Instead I ended up making a prefab painter so I can make levels faster. Then I worked on the AI some more. This is just me messing around with the enemy physics while he's trying to climb a mountain.

Think I'll stop playing games so much and make my own. I always think I could make better games than the ones I play.

I'm starting small, a text-based life simulation game. I'll probably implement it in javascript/html, release it public domain. What's important to begin with is the game design.

Share ideas if you will. Here are some ideas I've fished from the bottom of my mind:
>strategically navigate life or let life take you for a rice
>many factors you have no control over
>more procedurally generated content than you can even experience: you are a drop in a bucket
>cheating turned into game mechanics: like how Caves of Qud has potions of precognition that are functionally saving, I want there to be a way within game mechanics to do things that might be fun to do cheating.
>simulated economies and societies
>somehow I want morality to evolve like it does in nature
>perhaps you have limited control of your character because the player character has his own mind you have to deal with

Regarding processing things:
>a "reality bubble" where things are fully processed
>at least one more level of processing where things are processed to a lesser extent
>a "catch-up" system where things outside of the reality bubble are processed when they enter the reality bubble, e.g. if a fire were started somewhere but that place left the reality bubble when you return later it uses cellular automata to judge how the fire would spread. That's just an example, this game will probably be only text. A more relevant example would be your character leaving some country then coming back and npcs experience "catch up" simulating their lives while they were outside of the reality bubble
