Be like water
-Bruce Lee



My man


Source? The Jewish reading-prevention techniques part really stood out to me


Gasan was sitting at the bedside of Tekisui three days before his teacher's passing. Tekisui had already chosen him as his successor. A temple recently had burned and Gasan was busy rebuilding the structure.
Tekisui asked him: "What are you going to do when you get the temple rebuilt?"
"When your sickness is over we want you to speak there," said Gasan.
"Suppose I do not live until then?"
"Then we will get someone else," replied Gasan.
"Suppose you cannot find anyone?" continued Tekisui.
Gasan answered loudly: "Don't ask such foolish questions. Just go to sleep."

> It's not that the barbarians suddenly got stronger,

They did get stronger, in that there was a convergence with Roman military tech, and even more importantly there was suddenly a lot more of them with the aftershocks of the Hunnish migrations baring down on the Germanics


They did get stronger. The Germans that annihilated Rome's legions at Teutoburg were quite primitive and didn't make use of much metal. The average warrior had no armour to speak of, not even a helmet and used a shield with a spear with very limited amount of metal. Only the more important had armour and swords and they were generally acquired from Celts or Romans. Later on when the empire fell armour, swords, better spears and helmets were quite common and even heavy cavalry was becoming a thing.


On violence Jewish resistance to the Holocaust.


Incase you ever wondered what was actually going on during this often memed scene from a historical context.


Is Feudalism intrinsically more primitive than ancient slave society? After all the modern commercial capitalist society evolved out of the late medieval feudal society of the 1400s not from the Roman Empire

discussion of the third-lowest form of sequential art goes here

currently considering giving Dreamkeepers a read with the eventual goal of mocking it in some way. would be willing to share the results on the off chance anyone's interested.

anyone have any opinions on Prequel?

briefly considered getting into it back in the day, but eventually opted out.


Is that related to rubyquest? The art looks distinctly similar. Though it has been many years since rubyquest was a thing so what would I know.

I'm thinking of making a monarchist propaganda webcomic, to help spread monarchism but I don't really think people would appreciate it and I can't think of many jokes for it.


The fact that you are starting with propaganda first rather then interesting story, characters, or anything of artistic merit first tells me that this is a bad idea from the beginning.
Learn from the mistakes of the SJW crowd. When you put agenda before actual entertaining content the result is always shit.

I know this is a little off topic but, you being a "sylvester stallone mega fan", you wouldn't happen to know of a few lesser known but good movies he has been in? Like hidden gems of his career.


I enjoyed it….




After seeing your post I pirated it and tried.
I didn't like it at all, even though I was somewhat willing to go trough all the bullshit and meh quality…but couldn't, and dropped it half way through.
It's so intentionally lazy, jokes were lame and unfunny, character were made up by some teenage succubus (at least that's my impression). It's half ass made, fuck this movie. Norms who did this film, were probably like 'let's make a zombie movie for funsies XD haha, let's bring Bill Murray also' I dunno, didn't mean to hate it, but it's so fucking awful for me

considering reading Morrison's Flex Mentallo four-shot from back in the day- any wizzies have any thoughts on it?


I've read it before. It's different from anything else I guess, too "meta" for my liking. If you are interested in the history and evolution of comics, that's what it plays with.

Every other board has their own /general/ and it might be better to post about little known hobbies here, rather than have a new thread that gets 2 replies.

How about horseback riding?

What do you think of Classical Theist's YouTube channel?

Personally, I cannot comprehend anything he's talking about. I think it takes a while to get into Catholic theology. I asked the guy that runs the channel for help in getting into his material and he gave me a list of books. Maybe this will be interesting to you.



Catholic theology is pretty much Scholasticism + Aquinas + Aristotle as interpreted by Aquinas. Bertrand Russell talks about it in his History of Western Philosophy. The whole thing is basically a case of special pleading: we already know what's true by revelation, but we'll look for some rational arguments in case you're gullible enough to believe we're arguing in good faith.


Some of the early debates about the Trinity when this stuff was all still in flux was kinda interesting, a lot of neoplatonism 300-600 AD


Yes, I heard that Christianity as we know it was a fusion of Jewish culture and Western Philosophy. From my understanding, Western Philosophers had already arrived at the idea that there must have been a creator deity on their own, before the Bible was translated into Greek so it's not like the Catholics just made up those rational arguments for the sake of legitimising their own beliefs.

Also, surely the fact that the Saints were willing to be martyred for what they believed suggests that they were more likely to be misguided fools than people with a hidden agenda?

Do you read any fiction? Have you ever tried your hand at writing? Personally I have done both and I'm mostly into realistic fiction from every century.


El Dorado is fiction based on a history.

I recently picked up this hobby of watching pop education videos on youtube. History, science, technology, futurology, philosophy etc. It really passes the time. And a quick 10 minute tidbit is very relaxing.

I especially find the science, technology, futurology, AI videos very uplifting from the usual pessimism I dwell on.

Love these scientific tidbits of information, however, I hate the constant bombardment of politics in modern videos. It really ruins the experience. Also hate reading the comment section of YouTube videos. Need to cut that habit, trying to by only watching YouTube on my tablet with Newpipe. Newpipe disables comments.


YouTube comments have been generally garbage forever. You aren't missing anything by not bothering to read them the vast majority of the time.
I personally don't.

Polite sage for being slightly off topic.

I have no pride and I want money, but I want to hide it as "gifts" so that my bux are not decreased. Is camwhoring the solution? I've heard this is what welfare succubi do for supplemental income. Like with any job, we will have to work harder to make money from it (smaller market of thirsty elderfags to compete for) but it should still be possible, right?

Masks seem like a necessity, to avoid being targeted IRL for whatever you do on cam, so I was thinking something like pic attached.

I guess the thing is: is the money you can make lucrative enough, or is it just a waste of time? Are most unattractive men who are into doing this exhibitionists so they'd do it for free anyway and barely making anything and only succubi actually make enough to have incentive to do it when they would rather not?

My idea was, because summer is hot and I've in the past typed on the comp anyway shirtless, if I didn't do shit except aim it at me while I watched anime or something, would some rich fag recluse give me an extra hundred bucks a month to watch me doing nothing at all because he can see nipples?

I don't want to do anything sexual, I figure they might fund you with the hopes that will happen and then stop funding you if you don't accelerate, but that's fine with me, I'll still make some money for doing essentially nothing except wearing a mask which doesn't seem like it's that hard.

I guess my main prob is I wear glasses which can be awkward with a mask. Any tips on how to easily hide face while still wearing glasses? Not wanting to switch to contact.s

>speaking from experience fapping to gay cam shows occasionally
very wizardly


>the ones who just want to see "slice of lice" wizards in masks would be pretty small and hard to isolate.

I think that's a saturated market, OP. Every other comic book reviewer or retro gaming guy inhabiting the bottom of YouTube have a second channel where all he does is sit around watching anime or browsing his phone and I don't see they making any money with it. I have seen a guy getting free games and someone sent him a new pillow case but that's about it.


No one is going to pay money to watch a old fat guy sit around and do nothing.

Even cam whores and e-thots actually put in effort to put on a show and gather attention to make money.

the only way this would work is if you have some kind of weird ability or quality. basically you need to become an entertainer, but it can't be something difficult otherwise that defeats the purpose, so you need to already have something others want to see. like for example if you were absurdly obese and had manboobs the size of basketballs, people would shwo up just for the novelty and you wouldn't need to do anything.

Any wizards here play or played magic the gathering?
please share your experiences and thoughts.
when I was in high school people bullied me because I collected magic cards. Now as a adult, I still collect magic cards, but I have trouble playing with other people, human interaction is difficult for me and I aint very smart

It's ironic, because while the gameplay and aesthetics are very wizardly, the inherent social nature of the game is not.

It's a very commander oriented set, since they are trying to push their standard version of commander named brawl.


If you go to an LGS you'll find that about half the players are wizards and some are archwizards. A room full of virgins that collectively smell like death and only talk about game mechanics and lore is about as wizardly as you can get in a social environment.


I assume LGS means local game store. I tried forcing myself out to go to one and it was inhabited by young succubi and middle-aged parents and loud ethnics. One or two people "looked" wizardly but it turned out they had kids and wives. No one wanted me there, they all instinctively knew I shouldn't be there, as did I. Suppose it varies by location of course, as this was only my experience in my local game store. But it's not an option for me and online sucks. I just play against myself sometimes and am starting to just stare at the cards and pretend I'm playing.
I was thinking of a way to get around this and it would be to print each card using a public library. You can probably fit about 8-12 cards per sheet of paper and with colored ink at $0.30 at my library, you could print between 10,664 - 15,996 cards with a $400 budget. I haven't tested how many fit on a standard sheet of paper yet. If you want a back to the card, you would cut the amount in half, so at least 5,322 double-sided cards. If you wanted to laminate them, which is necessary for long term use, it would cut how many you could make for $400. Lastly, you wouldn't do this with lands, obviously, since they aren't worth the printing money. For those, I would just cut out rectangles and draw the land symbols and any details below if it has extra effects. It would be a lot of work and time but it would be cheap. And yeah, you won't be able to play in a tournament but those are for normalfaggots anyway.

Have you looked into Pauper or Penny Dreadful? Pauper is, imo, the current best eternal format in the game, and is generally very cheap. (The current meta is a bit screwed up, but there will probably be a ban soon, and it's not actually awful right now, just a bit stagnant). Penny Dreadful is even cheaper, only online, and rotating.
Lorwyn Chandra is fine, honestly. I agree that there has been a massive shift towards normie art (ex. too many cards to count) and mechanical design (ex. Questing Beast), but I think it started somewhat later. The meta-references (ex. Totally Lost reprint) really started killing the game for me. That and the hatred that half of WotC's design team has for the old playerbase, their refusal to do away with the reserved list…
