Anybody into SHTF related hobbies? I started with prepper stuff the past year and it was quite helpful to be prepared before normgroids started panicking with the coronavirus. I'm reading a lot on the topic and trying to improve in different skills for when SHTF, if ever. Perhaps this doesn't sounds as a very wizardly hobby but I find survivalist stuff interesting and training different skills and improvisation helps me concentrating and not being devoured by my thoughts. I think it's good for wizards

The prepper scene is full of larpers, lunatics, and useless garbage but thankfully there's people who survived through IRL SHTF events and their experiences, giving genuine and useful info for beginners. My recommendation for newbie wizards interested in this area is to read Selco (Bosnian war survivor) and Ferfal (Argentine economic collapse survivor). They're among the most genuine out there and there's lots of common points in their thoughts and advice

I was thinking more along the lines of lets say the city just got into a position where SHTF but people have not yet descended into violence.


>I was thinking
No you weren't.


I like this example: imagine if guns were never invented. Sure people would still be violent, but limiting their ability to express that violence so drastically is clearly significant. Plus often the reactions to that newly increased potential creates a feedback loop. You need a gun because they have a gun. You need your propaganda because they have theirs. The internet definitely made things worse.


The world was significantly more violent before guns were a common thing. Guns aren't actually a limiting factor in the expression of violence. Just look at all the mass stabbings in china or around the world with similar numbers of casualties to mass shootings in the US. Or that the worse mass killings don't involve firearms at all.
All the wars. All the suffering.
The tool used isn't what actually matters. You need to get to the first principles. The root of the issues, rather then being focused on the dust that settles on the leaves.

While all tools can have negative effects when in the hands of those that are ignorant in how to properly use it, that doesn't mean the tool is bad or that the tool has actually made things worse overall from a wider perspective. It is only when you focus on the microcosme of a few stand out negative events. To focus on the dust on the leaves. That you lose perspective and blame the tool while totally missing the root of the problem.
Take a step back and take in the whole, then go backward until you reach the first principles. To look at the whole plant then trace things from the dust on the leaves to the leaves, to the stem, and all the way down to the root.

I've decided it's time to take action and maximize my chances of survival for when some sort of collapse, war, whatever happens.
I want to have a safehouse, somewhere to go to as last resort, and in the meantime I want it to be my hobby to prep it to best of my abilities.
Which areas in Europe offer the best chance of survival in case of a collapse and reign of survival? Where can I find fresh water realiably, where can I fish and grow my own food reliably, where can I hide reliably? Doesn't have to be conveniant, might not have a road good enough to park under my own doorstep. Being able to procure firearms legally before the collapse would be a bonus, but we can't have everything.

I've been thinking about Croatia.

>Because the jokes on us
Don't try to drag me down into your delusion.
The only joke on me is existence and everyone living is ripe for mocking equally due to this.
>When I watch these movies, especially the ones with all the celebrity worship, it’s just like pouring salt in the wound.
Only because you are like a child spiritually or less than human really since children aren ot born poisoned with vanity to the extent you are.
You cry about celeb worship but you are just jealous you have a one track mind and cannot see beyond your stupid desires.
>How does that not make your blood boil?
Why would it make my blood boil? I do not care for what others have and there is little I want and nothing I desire I do not posess and even that does not make me happy.
How would being rich make me happy? why would I want to be a celb and stalked by paparazzi? You just sound like some butt hurt crab who wishes they could be a normalfag you worship normalfags lol.
Why are you even posting here instead of one of the many forums made especially for your type?


You say that you like these depressing movies that aren't normalnigger trash, but do you realize who directed one of the ones you posted above? Those that you are describing, Gary Oldman who directed Nil by mouth, is part of those same ones. What makes my blood boil even more is when millionaires get rich off of the themes of suffering that they didn't have to go through. That's why I'd rather be entertained with some action movie than pretend that I can relate to some film that a richfag made for fun.

Recently I have been learning to sing from YouTube videos. It's extremely satisfying to hit high notes and sing basic melodies right. The hobby is free to do and with only minimal practice you can get a lot out of it.

Since it can be embarrassing starting my approach is to mask the noise with a white noise machine. I normally practice my singing at night time when the norms are least active. I'd say the noise level volume is a little over talking volume which should be okay but I'd still prefer not to be overheard by my room mate.

Any wizards into singing?

No fear, man.


I've been keeping up with my singing practice and getting a lot of enjoyment out of it. Honestly this is a great distraction and form of stress relief. It is a weird hobby but strangely therapeutic, would recommend. To other wizards who want to learn more check out YouTube for some basic exercises: learn about chest voice vs head voice vs falsetto. That's more than enough to get started.


i bet 99% of wizzies will sound like garbage.
not a bad thing though, pisses the normies off :)


i dont agree. its really just a matter of learning. taking the time to do scales and slowly improving vocal range and control. that lets you actually hit notes when you sing lyrics.

whats cool is everyone is going to sound unique in their own way. i feel like this hobby is awesome for those who can find the privacy to do it. ive been having a lot of fun with it ^_^


Just sing like you're a CODA (child of deaf adults).

Post good (spoken) books in this thread.

I'll start with the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius. Such a good narration.

More people lurk forums than post on them.


Audiobookbay seems to have a pretty decent collection



I wasted my parent's money on this book and a bunch of other similar books from the same author, Thank God, I never went to his retarded sermons or conferencers or whatever where you literally spend thousands for a weekend. Just a typical scam artist, but far worse than the Tony Robbins types.


They are free at the library and ultra cheap used.

Some of the stuff he says is pretty good but there is also a ton of bullshit you have to look out for to. Like his praising of MLM and door to door sellsmen.

If you read his stuff with a critical eye you can pick out the gold and gems from the shit and gain value from it. That said he fully deserves the hate he gets for being a fake finance guru.

What? Really? Nobody likes Lego here? I thought this was a popular hobby, especially among our kind. For me? Its the Time Twisters.

Any good Lego youtube channels worth checking out?


I prefer COBI



I can't afford this hobby but from time to time, I like watching youtube videos of expensive and interesting builds. I know it's not the same thing, but it's the closest I'll ever come to an expensive build. I think it's a nice wizardly hobby, but the expense holds many wizards back for good reason. Apparently famous autist Chris Chan is a big lego fan and spent many thousands on lego builds. I don't think the average wizzie has the free money to waste on that type of hobby, that's why I watch videos like this.



I've also been listening to audiobooks while watching these lego builds muted, the good builders don't talk or have music anyway so having sound on the videos is pointless. That way I can get two hobbies done at once, yet also have concentration to finish up some surveys for spending money.

What do you do when you have no interest in your current hobbies but want to some hobby time?

Can we have a thread about new and interesting hobbies you discover even if you don't do them?
2 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


Any suggestions where? Top 50 hobbies lists are worthless.


Reddit, discord, forums, twitch, youtube etc. Depending on the hobby, certain sites are better than others, for instance, reddit is much better at selecting meme content than serious, long-form discussion, but it can serve as aa hub for links to different communities and resources. Discord can be nice when you find a small, niche community and its quality usually drops the more people join. Forums are the best for long-form, serious discussion, as threads are expected to stay a long time and people are expected to put in at least a minimal amount of effort when writing a reply (although, this doesn't stop normalfags from inflating their post count with one liner "thanks, this is great" filler). Twitch and youtube communities always organize around a particular content creator, so they usually turn out to be more about the creator than the content.

Twitch has a lot of people streaming themselves doing a particular hobby, like drawing or japanese printmaking. I like browsing through Science & Technology section on twitch and find these small channels that stream programming. Sometimes I watch, sometimes I just have it in the background while I work on my own stuff.


>Top 50 hobbies lists are worthless.
Every hobby will have various subcultures and subdomains within it. It's up to you to explore and find these things because for some they're not just out there for the taking.

Any one else have horror stuff as a hobby? Like collecting weird pictures, reading creepy stories, listening to paranormal podcasts and watching horror films? I find myself drawn to it and I think it counts as a hobby if it's something you're invested in. Sort of like a modern folklore.

I have two sides: One that loves horror and one that loves strawberry hand cream


Could you recommend some movies? I’m looking for the strangest ones. Like the first of Freddy Krueger. The first dream scene of the long arms freddy disturbed me a lot the first time I saw the movie. The second one lose his touch when you see freddy killing people who are awake, but, the part the succubus tries to save his boyfriend was really well made, I wish all the movie was like that. If you can post movies about nightmares it would be great



This channel has funny horror drawings https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LZAA6Fe3EA top kek

What are the most autistic hobbies? The most hardcore and obscure interests that a normalfag can never hope to penetrate? I don't mean retarded lolcow shit, but things that require study or have a technical bent. Pic related kind of, that's the sort of stuff I'm getting at.

Retro computing is a bit of a normalfag hobby, but the thing that most normies don't want to do is actually PROGRAM for retro computers. I'd really recommend learning ASM with something like Chibiakumas.




People like that are the biggest normalfags on the planet.


Punching myself


he was not a normalfag he was too messed up for even wizchan. people who try to be outsider artists would be normalfags though

I contemplated on which board to post this and ultimately decided I'll do it on /hob/ this time, as it seems to me that collecting and enjoying pictures of houses, towns, areas, natural scenes etc., is in fact kind of a hobby.

So post pictures that you associate with comfyness. I personally have a thing for forest cabins and quaint little town streets.

Stop it or I will start reporting you for using ¿This? shit as a pseudo signature.

It ain't cute.


¿ Stan Sakai still does Usagi Yojimbo? The last thing I remember reading about him in 4chan /co/ is was about a cartoon based of the comic. I don’t know if was released or not.


hello is there a conan adaptation that is not SJW or changing the plot to be PC?


I love Conan and read all the original books. Seconding this wizard's question.

I'm about to finish the Moon Knight series from 2006. What a ride, so much violence and gore, definitely one of my favourites anti heroes. His interactions with others like Punisher or Iron Man are gold as well. Planning on reading his old comics and both 2014 and 2016 series afterwards.

Next one is probably Shang Chi
