No, it shouldn't. Samsa got the exact same parental treatment neets and hikkis do when he woke up one morning and was unable to go to work to support his family, and then became a freeloader.
It's the story of a wageslave that woke up as a neetsect.

What happened to Penguin Classics? Not only are the pages a bleary white and thinner, but the type is falling into the gutter and off the top margin. It seems like the margins have been sacrificed in favour of making the type bigger. The adverts in the back now look like something out of a magazine, instead of a discreet listing of related works. I don't expect Penguin to be high quality, because they are supposed to be cheap pulp books, but they always had this aesthetic where everything had its place.

I get most stuff from libgen like everyone else, but there are some books you have to physically own. It's as though any aesthetic defect disproportionately affects the pleasure of reading them by virtue that I buy books less often, I want them to be perfect because I want to treasure them.

After a streak of bad movies finally hit a good one.

The Wolf of Snow Hollow.
Wasn't mindblowing or anything but was just slightly above average thriller with a ending that didn't suck and not too much progressive bullshit other then some rando getting triggered by the word faggot in the beginning (can't say more without giving away plot points).

It is more about the stress of everything on the lead cop then anything else. Still was surprised that it didn't suck.
Yeah, not a high bar to go over but still, 2020 has been a pretty bad year for direct to video movies.

I watched Pulp Fiction. It was a weird movie with three memorable moments that are referenced a lot. That is quite the achievement. Not gonna lie. I decided to watch it because of the dead nigger storage. Was not disappointed.

Gonin

It was okay, I mainly watched because Kitano and Shiina were in it. 5 guys who are pretty down on their luck steal a large sum of money from a yakuza family branch and get hunted down. Lots of shock content and it kind of feels a little like Sonatine with how it portrays the cycles of violence.

Also was a cool surprise to see the guy who played Sagawa in Yakuza 0 in this as a minor character.

i watch twitch streams purely as vods, despite having an account from like 2014? if i remember correctly, i dont think ive watched a single live stream or interacted with other users or streamers. same situation for my positively ancienty twitter account, it just is a way to categorize people and check for updates. i dont know if ive retweeted, liked, commented, made a tweet, or sent any messages, followed… i wouldnt say it is a weird hobby, but it's a weird aspect that is universal among my internet behaviour, the lack of interacting with other people

I quit twitch years ago now. I never log in to any account or post using an identifiable handle if I can avoid it.

I have lost interest in every streamer I used to watch. If I can bear to watch a streamer, it's a vtuber. I guess I don't feel enough animosity towards succubi to not watch their streams. Simping is out of the question though.

In video games, I will exclusively play what are considered "movement modes". For example: In CS Source I will play "surf" and "bunnyhopping" servers/maps, in TF2 there are rocketjump/stickyjump maps, in Quake 3 there are defrag maps. There are also climb maps in various games, and there's even more modes in older games. I play zero video games outside of these movement modes. If this is interesting to anyone, then add Momentum Mod to your Steam wishlist. It will be released in December, it'll be completely free, and will centralize all of these modes into 1 game with global leaderboards, tons of maps, and extra features etc.

Lets say I was an AI who could simulate conscious minds and realistic bodies down to the atomic level or some shit. Would I still be a wizard if I fucked an extremely realistic succubus in my own mind?

 No.57888

Imo, the job of a wizard is to slowly stifle the nature of his own sexuality through sheer willpower. Simulating sexual experiences would be against this. I can imagine it being an extremely popular thing amongst the majority of humans, though.

You don't need to be a advanced AI to do that. Just get into lucid dreaming. I summoned and then wizfucked so many succubi, both real and not real. That was in the past though, i am over this beastly impulses and only use lucid dreaming for spiritual purposes.But that is a fact - you can recreate reality down to the feeling of wind on your face. Takes a while though

My hobby is trolling and cyber stalking people. Does anyone else share this amazing interest. I understand it is a bit weird, but it's my only interest. I have 40+ instagram accounts larping as various females and males, to catfish my way into various random normies lives and gain followers. Every larp has a distinct personality and it's own internet friend group. I also do this on twitter, and facebook. Anyone else share the interest?

The only sad part is none of my friends know who I am ,I am a 48 year old wizard neet. But through these personas, I can be anyone I desire.

Anyone here use Linux for fun and profit?

I'm currently running debian with dwm as my window manager. I was curious to see what all the hubbub was about when it comes to minimalism and I gotta say I like some things about it. However, I'm still not fully convinced it's the end all be all of desktop computing or anything. There are still plenty of programs I like to use that are considered "bloated" by true minimalists.

Overall I'm more productive on my Linux system than I am on my Windows system. It feels good to know all the keyboard shortcuts in my system and be able to program new ones quickly and easily through config.h, and to be able to launch many programs near instantaneously. And the tiling and workspaces? It's absolutely gorgeous. I love having control of where everything goes without having to much about with window borders. I love having a group of programs open dedicated to performing a certain task, and then being able to instantly switch to another group of programs by just pressing alt+[num].

I had never understood why people would go out of their way to complicate their own lives with no-gui/CLI only setups.

Why use vim/emacs when you can get the same done with an IDE and a mouse in half the time?

I can understand it if its only for fun and aesthetics but then I see people boasting about increased ""productivity"".

How? How would you even benefit from this?

CLI only operating systems are more hardware efficient. They can also be more secure as they have less of an attack surface. It's ideal for hosting web services and I'm sure many other reasons.

I don't get it either. Spent a bunch of time using emacs and I just don't see the benefits. By that time I could've learned a new framework or programmed something useful. What a waste of time.

I don't agree with the implication that CLI/TUI tools necessarily 'complicate' your life. To the contrary, half of the appeal (namely of CLI programs) is that they allow you to accomplish certain tasks in a far simpler, automatable way, contrast to a GUI that would require a lot of "manual labor" to achieve the same thing. For instance, in a very simple example, I could effortlessly move every file with ".jpg" as the extension to another directory with a command like "mv *.jpg ~/destination". In most GUI file managers, I would need to click a button to sort by filetype, then drag my mouse to select those files, then open the directory I want in the sidebar or another tab, then drag the files over to the destination. Of course, much of the appeal of Unix-like systems is that command-line programs are small, focused, and chainable with one another, such that you can perform fairly complex tasks simply. Scaled up to programs like dmenu, you can even simply implement custom interfaces and menus for your system, and your imagination/use cases are the only limit.

In the case of TUI programs, the appeal is generally that they treat keyboard control as a first class citizen, and are extremely configurable and extensible. For instance, in my file manager, 'ranger', I have keybindings that allow me to quickly travel to any directory on my system–I can type 'gmb' as shorthand for 'go ~/Media/Books', for instance. Or, I have another keybinding that runs a command that uploads the file(s) I have selected to a file-hosting or pastebin-style website, then copies that link to my clipboard. With a typical GUI file manager, I'd have to tediously open up my browser, then navigate to the file hosting website, then upload the file, then copy the link. It's also got useful built-in commands, like a bulk-rename feature that allows you to open up all of your listed files in a vim buffer, and rename them all at once (Emacs can do something similar in dired), or a 'flatten-directory' feature that allows you to view several nested directories as one single directory.

In either case, I think hardware efficiency is just a side-benefit (although, it can be a very meaningful benefit if you're using older or underpowered hardware). It's fair to argue that you pass aPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Been getting tired of depending on corporate America providing for me, I want to get into farming and gardening, saving my money and resources to eventually build a self sufficient farm so I can fully sequester myself from modern culture.

Thing is, I'm an idiot and I know nothing about farming, how to do it, how to get started, stuff that I could start at home to accustom myself to the lifestyle. I'm relatively fit but have no knowledge, any pointers would be much appreciated.

I need an arborist to remove my existing trees before I can plant fruit trees. I can't afford to have any more shade in my yard than I have already for the sake of my vegetables. I have an old ash tree with many dead brittle limbs that break off and will probably fall on my head and kill me someday when I am raking leaves. There's a white alder with a case of mistletoe and a few oaks that dumb acorns everywhere which the birds pick up and scatter around the yard. The only tree worth saving is a pomegranate tree.

There's a possibility I could saw down the weeping cherry tree in the front yard (it's strictly decorative and does not produce edible fruit) and replace it with an apple tree or something. There's a lemon tree in a neighboring yard with branches growing over the fence but they are Meyer lemons which are basically useless.

What are some hobbies that don't involve consuming anything? You purchase a 1 time item and very rarely if ever have to replace it. Learning yo-yo tricks would be a consumptionless hobby in this case. There are obviously thinks like whistling or playing the spoons too. The idea is it has to make as little foot print as possible while being something you can develop and grow at. Drawing wouldn't count because you need paper.
