Pipe tobacco is a hobby, right? There's the element of collecting pipes and trying various blends, which resembles wine tasting in how elaborately some people talk about them. Any wiz pipe smokers here? Any favourite blends you'd recommend? Show me your wizpipe(s) (no homo).

Here's my pipe and some tobacco I'm currently smoking. The one in the tin is Old Gowrie

Tobacco is a light drug, like alcohol.


Yeah I figured tobacco being ashy is why it’s smoked in wood pipes. I wonder if I could make a pipe with a glass lining but a wooden case. I just love the way they look.


>I wonder if I could make a pipe with a glass lining but a wooden case.
Possible, yes but it would be complicated to produce with a limited market. So odds are such a pipe would be pretty expensive for a pipe.
Metal and stoneware/ceramic being more typical in hybrid pipes from what I have seen at stores and stands.


I meant to just make one for myself. The insert would be the hardest part, but the wood seems easy enough.


I love the taste of tobacco

Who here likes to walk? Where do you walk? How long do you walk for? What kind of shoes do you like to wear? Do you take photos?

I have seen videos of myself walking around and they were as awful as I thought, I look like an autistic person you’d see rarely while out, or at least like I have some mental problem


Dressing with better clothes solves it?


I really want to, I used to walk a lot but now I have no reason to go outside, it's cold as fuck in my cunt and, although I'm not rich, I live in the good part of this "city" and everybody here is an huge asshole, maybe I'm a schizo but when I go for a walk with no reason people notice and they look at you weird
It sucks because walking is so fucking importand for your mind and body


>Who here likes to walk?
Me. Always have. I actually think it might be somewhat unhealthy because i notice i do it to avoid things.

>Where do you like to walk?

The outer-suburb town i live in now isn't too bad. I've only had some teens try to fuck with me a couple of times and the dog thats always roaming streets let me pat it tonight.

>What kind of shoes do you wear?

Some Nike running shoes that i got for my birthday a few years ago.

>Do you take photos?

No, i'm more of a night walker. I've considered filming incase something eventful happens but it rarely dose.

Funnily enough i found walking in the city when i lived there probably more isolating than rural walking. If you walk rurally during the day you have to say "hi" to the people that pass you and the worst altercation i got into night walking was doing it in a rural town. People there can get pretty antsy if they feel somethings 'off" about their little area.

I remember seeing treadmills with screens on them playing POV footage of someone walking through an actual track. Kind of funny.

I go for walks when I'm feeling restless at night, usually 3-4 miles. I live in the suburbs, so I don't see any people and only a few cars. I just wear my dead running shoes.

I don't take pictures, but I took this video during winter as a test (video recording isn't implemented properly on my phone yet, so I had to use an arcane ffmpeg script). It's earlier than I usually go, but I wanted to walk in the snow and it's too dark on that trail at night. Dusk fell towards the end and no one was outside due to the cold, so it was nice and quiet.

How the hell is that reliable?

Me and my cousin were on a walk, I saw some berries and he picked one and ate it, talked about how these berries are this and that etc. and after he was was bedridden for days. Turns out it was nearly identical to it's edible kind except it had a slightly different color leaves or some shit like that.

He does foraging as a hobby, and often tells me about the dangers of safe plants looking identical to poisonous ones. So what the fuck.

Do you want all of us to end up like the guy from Into the Wild?


We have those in Illinois. Boletes are pretty safe bets too

if anyone has bamboo near them, each spring they produce a bunch of shoots. you harvest them with a shovel by digging around the shoot to find its base, it should be growing from a rhizome, cut into it just above that with shovel and twist it out. any bamboo is fine. you want shoots that are sheathed like pic. doesn't matter how big the shoots are, as long as they look like that, different species have different sizes. cyanide content is somewhat proportional to the size of shoot and area that is exposed aboveground. the cyanide can be removed by simply boiling them for 2 hours or until they are no longer bitter. you can change the water if it helps. the outer parts are too tough to eat, but you can either peel them before or after boiling. if boiling them unpeeled, you have to remove the tip and score the whole shoot along its edge to help expose it to water. they are crunchy but also stringy and smell like corn or grass, it's hard to compare it to anything but it tastes great. they are really nutritious to boot

easy brainless food that anyone can harvest and cook


Hey thanks, this is helpful I had once heard that people eat bamboo shoots, will any species work? There are several species where I live, notably one that's quite big, about 3in in diameter and growing up to perhaps 15m or more, could I eat that? Even the shoots should be good for a full meal.

yeah any species and any size is edible, but some are more palatable than others. bigger stuff needs cooked longer. but they are all fine as long as they arent bitter after cooking

they just need to be shoots tightly packed into a sheath with a zigzag pattern like so

Is any wizard interested in practicing the ancient pre-christian polytheistic/henotheistic religions like Greek or Norse paganism? Have you ever tried to commune with the Gods?

Why is practicing Paganism larping but practicing an Abrahamic religion isn't?


because one is still insitutionally practiced


Neo-Pagans have their own organisations as well.

At any rate, all of the arguments offered up for why it's supposed to be larping is some variant of 'paganism is dead'. But Christianity could also be said to be dead. It hasn't been a relevant ideological force since at least the 19th century, it's for the most part not taken seriously in developed countries and most of its recent converts are found in irrelevant third world shitholes.

If it's just a numbers game, what amount of followers or what percentage of the population needs to be Pagan for it to be considered a real religion? Jews are less than 1% of the total world population but their religion isn't considered larping.


Catholicism has absorbed *some* pre-Christian traditions wherever it went, did it not
I don't view this as either positive or negative. Well I find it fascinating, so not totally negative


>Abrahamic religions have actual unbroken traditions
>Abrahamic religions have an ancient lineage of a initiated priests
>Abrahamic religions have a body of doctrine debated and developed over millennia
>Abrahamic religions are the basis of the civilization you live in and inform its moral values
>Abrahamic religions have established methods and ritual
>Abrahamic religions offer solutions to the problem of temporality and transcendence
Nobody says that Buddhism or Hindu-religions are LARPing either. But paganism is, the expression "pagan" itself denotes that, and in regard to religion it only makes sense in relation to another religion, and that as an insult. What exactly is this thread about? Do you think an Ancient Greek and a Norseman practiced the same religion? The most they had in common is that both had beliefs that revolved around ancestor worship, and nowadays most of their descendants have had Christians ancestors for more than a millennium. "Paganism" as a religion is not dead because it was never a religion, it's even less legit than the guys who claim to follow the Jedi religion from Star Wars in real life.

I want to start making images of places I go as I walk around my home city. I’d like to know if any artists here have a recommendation on how to go about this. I’d like to either draw or paint, but have never done either. What do you suggest is a good method? Just a pencil and notebook?

Picture unrelated




just take photos

you can produce artwork from the photos at any future date using any medium

A thread for those who enjoy and wish to discuss animation and animation related stuff from places that aren't Japan.

The oscars are worthless garbage, especially when it comes to animation.


I thought it was an ok show thats been extremely overhyped by people who have a parasocial relationship with the people who made it. I'm glad these guys are getting their shot rather than some dime a dozen LGBQT animation twitter psycho but the cult of personality shit around it is so obnoxious and i don't think the show is good enough to overshadow it. They're obviously still finding their feet so maybe season 2 will be better.


Do you think Shrek would have gotten over his loneliness in time to become a truwiz if Farquad didn't interrupt his life? Or perhaps was he too broken to not be a wiz at all? After all, he did allow himself to have romantic feelings for Fiona. I don't know if he could be trusted even if Shrek 1 never happened.

I don't know if it was the oscars or not, but I remember there was a year where some voters didn't know any of the animated nominees, called Song of the Sea "Chinese"(It's Irish), and just gave their votes to the Disney movie because it was the only one they knew, even if they didn't see it.


A general distaste for the Walt Disney Company and its practices had solidify Nickelodeon's motivation to limit size and avoid feeling "corporate".
All of this was thrown out the window after Spongebob premiered.

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?

The sport is mostly watched by macho retards that like to see generic “hot” females in skimpy clothing, sort of like how you’ll often find those race car poster/calendars not just featuring the car but also some female on it, it comes with the territory



You don't. If you have a chance of fighting back you're not being bullied.


>The sport is mostly watched by macho retards that like to see generic “hot” females in skimpy clothing
Eh… That's the perception that some people have and the presence of ring succubi definitely adds to that image of the sport. I wouldn't say it's entirely accurate; anecdotally speaking, I know some smart people who are bored by all sports except MMA. Personally, MMA, boxing and Muay Thai are the only sports that I have ever cared about or enjoyed watching.

The ring succubi originated in boxing from a very different era when people would really enjoy seeing semi nude succubi as it was rare to see. These days with instant access free pornography, ring succubi are a stupid anachronism.


It's a legit sociopathic request.

Don't know if we've ever had thread even though it seems like a very wizardly hobby. I bought a really cheap tecsun but i could only get a couple channels, two spanish (cuban?) ones and some mainstream new channels. Not sure if spending more money would help or if I should try a different area. I've been told the hobby is completly dead but looking on reddit and forums it looks like there's still some activity
25 posts and 4 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


Number stations are spooky but certainly interesting. I was into them as a child, and would spend time with my dad's shortwave radio searching for them. One idle Sunday I did find one. A succubus reciting numbers in Spanish over and over. Fwiw I'm in the southeastern US, so it's possible it was coming from a Latin American country.

It's a shame that radio is dead. I've always been interested in getting a radio for myself and seeing what I could find. I live in the southern Appalachians so I suppose there's gotta be something out there for me to listen to


Radio isn't dead so much as completely consumed by propaganda.


Also, there's no reason to buy a radio when you can just get any station in the world through the internet.


people use radio for more than music. it also makes sense if you don't have good/consistent internet or if you travel


Tell us, how do you remove the snow from your yard?
Do you do it yourself or do you call someone?
What do I do and who do I call if I have a very large area that needs to be cleared?

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

cool project wizzie. i enjoyed your post and think tech projects like this develop extremely useful skills. good post.


What is the advantage of this over simply saving all that content on a hard drive? I get the whole solar thing, but what is the point of the raspberry pi?


hard drive is for storing information, pi with IIAB is for broadcasting information (and other things) via hotspot so any device can access it. you could NAS some hard drives but the power for simply spinning a single hard drive is more than running a pi. with a pi you have very low power requirements, so you dont need a big battery or solar panel to keep it running 24/7. the idea behind this is a humanitarian project called solarSPELL.

it's basically a plastic tupperware with all this inside it
-solar panel
-raspberry pi
-voltage regulator
-portable usb charger

they make these things in bulk and ship to africa and other poor places so for example you just throw it outside in the sun and suddenly your classroom has a virtual learning environment (IIAB includes learning and educational stuff like khan academy for example). it is extremely cheap. but the battery system they are using doesn't provide 24/7 power


Just got into gardening and shooting guns since the beginning of this year. It's made me think why the hell isn't everyone taught these kind of life skills growing up? Just like how everyone should know how to take care of their own car. More useful than 90% of the shit you learn in high school.


Yeah I agree, I think your chances of survival in an urban area when true SHTF is nil. Your best chance of survival is in a rural area with as you said, a closely-knit community.

I've got a shitload of food, ammo, water barrels, ham radio, "kool gear" etc. stocked up, but I know it's all completely useless as long as I'm still living in an urban area. Though I'm planning to get the hell out of here in 4-6 months.
