Anyone else just really like the feeling and use of a Mechanical Keyboard? Recently picked one up from my local Walmart for $70. Old Razer 2019 BlackWidow and it feels nice. Wondering if anyone else likes them too.

There are a switches that are around the same noise level as membrain keyboards.

That said I love the clicky ones, so I can understand someone not really liking them, especially if they love silence.

>>65785
Surprisingly it actually is.
Especially when you get into custom key and switch combinations and building and modifying keyboards.
There are also people who collect them.
For me it isn't quite to the level of a hobby, but I do like them quite a bit and would be happy to talk about them for hours.

I saw a keyboard the other day that looked like a type writer. Do you think something like that would be cool to own?

 No.66280

>>66257
It wouldn't be to my personal taste.
Then again I don't exactly have fond memories of typewriters.
They are clunky cumbersom devices that make revision and word processing so difficult that it is sometimes better to just retype a whole page then try to fix a relatively small error.

I hated learning to type on them as a child.
So I have no fondness for typewriters and would not like to own something that reminds me of them.

finally got my split ergo mechanical and i can totally see how this is an addiction. im gonna buy the glove80 or make a dactyl manuform next, 4x6 just isnt enough and im already using home row mods and layers but its just not enough for certain rarely used charactrers like tilde grave and plus minus. but its really nice and i like being able to type with my arms wide apart, makes my dark computer room feel like a spaceship piloting room

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.

It's interesting you say this, I think its because of how different and shocking it was before Columbine a certain amount of killer were middle aged men who just kidnapped people and cut them up or raped them with Eric and Dylan, America saw essentially 2 punk kids take matters into their hands, yeah you can bring up Dahmer or Manson but Eric and Dylan's actions have made people demonize trench coats in general for a long time

I've created a language years ago. I picked up words from english, german, latin and indo-european root words.
Here's some phrases:

" Bheheud ser, ek heer "
(tomorrow night, I'd be there)

" Nw Þonder "
(there's is a storm)

" Nw Þonder, ek ser bheud, sekzuheud "
(there's a storm today, I'll see you tomorrow)

" Ði mann sek ði deer "
(men and animals are different)

" Deer sek mann but Þey anwdeer und Þey mann ajwmann "
(animals aren't human but are living beings)

now here some words I've created so far:

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.

I've heard of that combination. I think it's pretty alright. Although, my chamomile is probably a year old or even older by now.

In other news, I've decided to try herbals from Celestial Seasonings. Their Raspberry Zinger and Country Peach Passion is pretty good. Their blueberry is very strong for one mug, and is okay if it's diluted a bit in a tea pot. It also smells like blueberry pancakes, for some reason. Their Orange and Spice is pretty smooth and has a delicate flavor. It's probably one of their best next to the Raspberry Zinger.

On actual tea, I still drink black teas like Earl Grey and Lady Grey if I find it. I like Lady Grey a lot more, but Earl Grey's still a great choice. I want to get into Moroccan mint tea, but I'll need fresh mint, which means growing some, since stores around me don't sell it. That's the only thing preventing me from making Moroccan mint tea, pretty much.

Yes, its possible to developed caffeine addiction, I had a huge caffeine addiction when I was young, I would get headaches if I didnt drink coffe and I had trouble to sleep. Its not that hard to lose the addiction, you just need to reduce the quantity of coffe that you drink. Also, avoid to drink coffe at night

You assert that but there isn't real world evidence of that, which is why learning institutions aren't structured around such a practice.

Instead from the lowest to the highest it's build around lectures or in other words listening to a instructor.

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.

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.

I think everyone should study their own birthchart, its a great source of information and wisdom. You can find the roots of 90% of your problems by studying it and every little detail about your own psyche.

But be careful, astrology is just tendencies (VERY strong tendencies), astrology is no joke. If you study it too much, it may cause some paranoia. Do not allow it to cause paranoia on yourself. Remember that you still in control of your own life and destiny, but the price is eternal vigilance.

Both the people say astrology is very real and people say its bullshit are correct. Its real but you also are free to become conscious and change the patterns that the stars impose on you.
