I liked the first math thread, but that hit the bump limit so I'm making another one.

Here is a neat tool posted in the previous thread that shows you how to do geometry the way the greeks did.


Here are a series of MIT OCW courses that will help you learn calculus:

Attached is the a Numberphile video about the seven bridges of Königsberg because I dunno what else to attach to this OP.

My professor recommended "Introduction to Graph Theory" by Robin Wilson, it's free from the University of Edinburgh online. The proof I laid out depends on the chapter "Paths and cycles" where Eulerian paths are discussed.
I like graph theory and wanted to give the proof I do not care about whether it's solvable within the bounds of the vague questioning.
Can you show the solution with crossed lines then?

>Can you show the solution with crossed lines then?

Here. Try it for yourself first. the trick is to start somewhere going outward, then loop all the ways back around the whole puzzle.


I stand corrected. Also nice job with the gif.
I like that caricaturization of myself, I appreciate the effort you put into it, too.


funny, the video in the OP is just about the puzzle everybody is talking about


i was looking up jomon dogu earlier today and it is frustrating trying to see any patterns in how the dogu developed over time, across different regions of japan

is it crazy to use a map of japan as the ground, and then stack dogu above their region of japan, chronolgically? this way you can see where and when themes and patterns of the dogu emerge

i tried arranging stuff in 2d but there is no direct connection to the region of the map, you need the extra vertical axis to stack them i think

Recasters can be much cheaper but the quality can be dubious for sure



Yeah I know, I'm lljust very lazy and apathetic a lot of the times. It takes me a long time just to do one mini.

I remember the first mini I painted was a skink and that took me 6 hours to poorly paint.


every new hobby a guy picks up will go slowly at first


positive and based encouraging advice. thanks

O.K., what the flying fuck dude? I get you're desperate, but if you're going to put effort into spamming like this, at least do it in the right places and the right times, otherwise it's not just a waste of our time, it's a waste of YOUR time , too!

First of all, you post in an imageboard. Do you know how fast you'd usually get deleted or banned for spam because the owner of the board would usually rather you pay for an advert?

Second, you post in WIZARDCHAN. Do you know what the average disposable income is here? Enough so that 90% of the userbase is on SSI or bumming off of their parents. With that kind of demographic, do you think we have money? With that kind of userbase, and the large number of mental issues we have, do you think we're entrepreneurs or businessmen with ideas for websites and apps?

Third, you post IN THE FUCKING HOBBY BOARD FOR LEARNING FRENCH. If you're going to spam, AT LEAST make a new thread in /wiz/ or some place noticeable. Ffs.

Your behavior clearly indicates why, despite possibly having programming skills, you're so fucking idiotic that you can't find work with those skills. However, if you don't even have this level of common sense, I severely doubt that anything you make could possibly be good. The ONLY thing good about your post is the fact that at least you don't have broken grammar.

I'd usually not be so harsh, but if you shit up a thread, I'll dish back hard words at you right back as a form of revenge and retaliation. Fuck right off.


>What might throw you off in newspapers might be the writing style that journalists try to go for (often bad to passable honestly)
>I would guess the same unwritten rule exists in most languages, but it is especially prevalent in french.
Dude, you're right. This was making me feel really despondent about learning this language.


How do you get back up to try again when you've failed before?


>Un fil sur la langue française où personne ne parle même un peu le français?


Thanks, never heard about that event.

I honestly haven't put any effort in gardening this chili plant, I just placed the seeds in the pot with dirt and this how it turned out a few weeks later. It's pleasuring seeing it growing day by day and im looking forward eating the chilli once its red.
It has such incredible calmness to it..

What are the small things that gives you some joy in this 'life'?

Imagine how pleasant it could be to not learn anything after a certain point. You would be able to read a book over and over again with only a vague sense of familiarity. Take biology as an example. What if every day you wanted to learn about mushrooms or Pre-Cambrian organisms and you could feel the same joy and wonder at how strange life is? Yes, it would be difficult at first to emotionally grasp that one was retarded, but once you accepted the fact, you could plan ahead to keep enjoying everything life throws at you. The world would truly be your oyster.


Go get a full frontal lobotomy if you want to live like that.

I am new to the subject of visual art. I was struck by the intensity of the work of an artist called Ilya Repin. I don't know what it is about his work; it just captivates my imagination.

Post art which captivates your imagination.

briggate shopping district of leeds, england. the artist, atkinson grimshaw, has loads of similar works from later on in his career, foggy london urban and landscape paintings. he was a very successful artist from the start so probably everyone had something good to say about it

Since Ilya Repin and Roerich have already been mentioned, my other favourite artist of the twentieth century has to be Andrew Wyeth. His lonely and austere regional portrayals of early settler American life really strike a note with me.

Also, wonderful thread.

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?

yeah well i didnt tell OP to hurt himself


Not the anon you asked but how do you increase your bone density? I feel I also have very weak bones.


Those from cultures who sleep, sit, and walk on hard surfaces are noted as having a thicker bone density close to that of a large wild animal's. The offspring of these people, now born in to a world of mattresses, couches, and shoes, suffer from more cavitatious bones. Obese people will tend to have heavier bones which grew to support the stresses of their weight.

Improving bone density much the same as developing muscle tissue. You stress the bone, then feed and recover with calcium and what the body needs in order to put the calcium on the bone (if anything). Regular exercises which strain the muscle should also strain whatever bone the muscle is grounded to so any exercise is going to contribute. Anything that transfers your momentum in to an object is very good, like jumping jacks that shake the floor or punching a bag real hard.

It's really just a matter of eating right after working out and rolling around on the ground every now and then. You could go extreme and sleep on a concrete slab and condition your bones by creating microfractures with a t-ball bat, but heavy bones are nothing without strong muscles to move them so it's best to treat bone development as a supplement to a regular workout.

I ask about his density because it's not uncommon for modern diets to be completely devoid of calcium. Every day children are admitted to the hospital with chronic aching. X-rays show nearly hollow bones. It's usually because, even if the kid is eating what seems like regular balanced diet, the particularities of what he will and will not eat cause him to be deficient in calcium. He lacks the gut biome to process milk so he can't get calcium from there, the cartoons taught him to hate broccoli, he's given Sunny D instead of fruit juice, and his family can't afford meats besides sausages and fatty bacon. Doesn't sound like such an odd scenario, but that's not going to deliver the minimum calcium needed to sustain, let alone grow, the bones.


Thanks for suggestions very informative.


Martial arts wise, I work kata/forms, isolated techniques, solo drills, shadow kickbox, heavy bags, and makiwara/striking post.
As well as weapons, and general physical fitness plus flexibility stuff.

Sometimes I do little training routines similar to if I was teaching the first part of a class for advanced students (2/3 of most classes I though were drills and sparing related stuff that can't really be done solo)

Stuff like doing a warmup with calisthenics or light weight lifting. Then do basic techniques for a number of repetitions. After that stretch really good. Followed by drills really focusing in on something in particular I want to or need to work on. Then I shadow kickbox or hit something while incorporating what I was working on.
Finish out ether with forms or drills in which I can really push myself fitness wise.

That is basically one of my typical solo martial arts sessions.
Though in all honesty when training solo for extended periods I tend to put a greater focus on physical fitness as it provides more objective feedback for me to work with and measure progress.

This thread is for discussing your successes and failures with magic(k) as well as occultism and metaphysics.

You can bake an asbestos pie and eat it for cancer generation


Do you need occult for this? Just look up group 1 carcinogens and have a fun time with as many of them as you can: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IARC_group_1 .


What do you think about this book?


I have unreal hatred for redditors and normalfags.
Its so tiresome.

magik and religion are still practiced, despite the announcement of god being dead or the disenchantment of the world through the enlightenment. they are practiced in a repressed way in which their morality and actions are still pervasive despite the secularism and atheism of the times. an advertising logo is just a sigil, a corporation is just a Egregore, social justice warriors are just puritan christens, communists are Gnostics.

the basics of magik is using your will to manipulate the hive mind of humanity in order to bring about change

you can do this in many different ways. psychoanalysis, advertising, art, science, philosophy, ceremonies, rituals, prayer, memetics

Anyone here interested in researching serial killers? I find some of their backstories and psychiatric evaluations really interesting…
39 posts and 4 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.




The generic archetype of a serial killer is low intelligence middle aged loner who works a menial job. I think they're for the most part pretty samey and boring, the few interesting outlier ones are more on the schizoid side.

The foid fascination with true crime is disgusting. They lie and obfuscate the obvious hybristrophilic attraction they feel when reading this garbage. It's also offensive to the victims to turn their suffering into cheap entertainment.


Yeah man


Anyone following the Bryan Kohberger / Idaho case?

I had mostly tuned it out, until a few days before he was caught. It just started to intrigue me,that so many victims were killed, with no clues or suspects at all. A true mystery.

And then this Bryan Kohberger character, a criminiology phd obsessed with his subject. a more interesting motive than you're usual crabs.

I also followed some of the controversy around this case. Like basically any awkward guy who got involved became a suspect.

I saw this poor guy who called up a podcast, about how he met some frat guys in Utah, 10 years ago, talking about how they'd do a murder. And the idiot host spun it around that he knew the Idaho victims, and made him into a suspect, and got him doxxed. And to this day, there are true believers who think the caller was Bryan.

Also theres this 33 year old succubus professor, talking about how Bryan was the most brilliant student she ever had


Why don't wizchan have one yet, are they hiding

Recently I've been getting into photography. I've found that after doing so, I perceive moments in different ways. Things simultaneously seem more transient, yet more permanent. It's a sensation that's difficult to describe, except to say that I am more 'aware' of the moments around me. For obvious reasons I have avoided urban areas, but in terms of landscapes and natural shots, it is quite peaceful.

Any photography hobbyists here?

Just a few pics I took on my wiz walks. This is my first time posting in the thread.



Thanks for this post. It's something i want to get into this year and it's a lot to wrap your head around. I was looking at prices for cameras and i was blown away by how expensive these things get.
