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

Not required for amateurs in my country. That said it has become more popular since the requirement was dropped.


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

Been wageslaving for a year and I managed to build my first half decent PC with some of the money I saved up. Any other anons enjoy this?

I used:
Ryzen 5 2600, ASUS ROG x470 mini itx, 16gb of RAM, and an rx590. Hopefully should last me 4 or 5 years since I plan to go NEET for awhile again soon.

it's not even the price of their intel processors, it's the mainboards with their new sockets. I've never seen such high prices just for mainboards, and they're even getting higher with each new socket


Where do you guys get hard drives for cheap? I've been looking at the used market, but people want new prices for used drives. I remember someone posting a link to some refurbished HGST 4TB drives for like $50 5-6 years ago, but I didn't have any money then. I did manage to find a pc at a thrift store with a 2TB drive for $12, which was pretty cool, though.


on ebay, ive picked up a few hard drives that were incorrectly listed as 1tb but had pictures of 10tb drives, and they actually ended up being 10tb. also some refurbished hard drives from western digital's ebay store, i bought a few 6tb drives but they all came as 9tb drives which meant they were bought for like $8/TB which is actually great. those are purely a result of the seller making some kind of mistake but set up alerts and just watch for stuff you can get lucky as well, people often list things way below the going price when getting rid of things


This is exactly why I didn't build a desktop and instead just bought a laptop. If they change the socket is your computer really upgradeable? You have to buy a whole new computer and just recycle your old parts. It's not even that much cheaper than just buying a new laptop and selling your old one. Heck it may even be more expensive.


idk what you guys are buying but i've never paid more than $100 for my gaming computer motherboard. my mining rig motherboard was $200 used however, but there's no reason a gamer ever needs anything like that

I keep eating ready meals which are starting to taste stale and I can't imagine the lack of nutrients and fresh ingredients being beneficial for my health. Also it's expensive.

People will tell you that cooking is easy but I have so little energy that I can't even get myself to follow those cooking recipes that require many steps and different ingredients.

I tried just eating frozen vegetables with salt and butter but they taste bland like that. Tried to improve it with some premade sauces but they all taste terrible.

So anyone got some REALLY easy to make meals?

I make sushi


File: 1640781350608.gif (478.28 KB, 800x600, 4:3, 2021.gif) ImgOps iqdb

I make ice-cream


And yet you post footage of a restaurant… Curious.

While having sushi recently I tried softshelled crab, really good. Scrumptious.


recently bught a big bag of nori and sushi rice. it's pretty fun rolling up random pieces of food into sushi. my favorite was taco seasoned ground beef, spicy ranch, and some cream cheese.


At least where I live all this asian stuff is quite expensive, even their rice and pasta. Regular seasonings and herbs on the other hand are very cheap.

By the way having two cooking threads is unnecessary and confusing, OP's specifications don't really justify for it not being just a general cooking thread. These themes may be addressed within it, literally three years to reach this amount of posts.

FUCK Hulk Hogan

FUCK the faggot WWE universe


Emotionally arrested at an elementary school age. After all, unless retarded, most people only found stuff like muscle men cool in a non-gay way back when children. It's also why there's so much vitriol towards someone having a sexuality at all, not having sex but a sexuality to begin with. 'They're' like 8 year olds with a higher IQ. Literal he man succubus haters club anti-libidos here that get angry if you admit to fapping (to 3d) as anime is for pedos after all they can keep fapping safe from police to anime as 8 year olds. I'm not baiting, this is just how I ended up profiling people after they showed their personality to me here too many times.

Also autists have fixations, that's another one, and they won't realize it's very bad acting either way, emotional arrestment nor autism route will likely notice bad acting.

There's more than one type of wizard in other words. You and I are probably not autistic nor emotionally arrested.



I hate Drew McIntyre so much it's unreal.


this pretty much

Watch Kinnikuman and say that again. WWE/F sumo and muscle men shounen are pure light. Anime is definitely for pedos. As we all know those guys are definitely attracted to large wrestlers that could twist them into a chinese noodle

Got two batches of beer brewing. Both are wheat malt, hops and cherries. Using wild yeast from cherries, hopefully Sacchoromyces. Malted the wheat myself (sprouted then dried in sun) and got cherries from my own cherry tree. I expect them to be sour beers but I'm not sure tasting them so far.

Right I started the 21st and left on 22nd. The left will probably fill with yeast cloud tomorrow and the cherries will float. The right one I only boiled until the wort changed color and smelled cause I just spontaneously made it after procrastinating after making the malt a couple months ago. I only had a fundamental understanding of brewing. The left one I boiled the hops for an hour and the malt a bit longer. That's why it isn't all the way full, too much boiled out. I'm probably gonna drink right after a week and left after a month or two.

Its pretty hot and sunny lately, tomorrow I'll start sprouting more grains I have and then malt them.

Gonna make mead soon. Reading the ancient way (which I trust more than modern ways - ignore modern schizo nonsense about sanitation, you don't need special soaps or airlocks), they used either years old rain water or boiled spring water. The yeast need nutrients beyond honey so I don't think I can just use tap water. My tap water in particular I know is soft (few minerals). I'm gonna age the mead at least 2-3 months.

Rice has mostly been liquefied, now I can pitch the yeast and let the fermentation begin.

Anyone here grow mushrooms or take them before?

I remember posting back on /wiz/ about a year ago about my experience with mushrooms and people were really interested. Though that time I bought them off the darknet markets, this time I am growing them. First image is my current grow, second image is not mine but where they will be likely be within 5 days, 3rd image is the innoculated jars.

Essentially what you do is sterilise brown rice flour (BRF) in a small masonry jar by way of pressure cooker. You then take the sterilise jars out, add psilocybin mushroom spores which can be bought online from USA in the clearnet no trouble as you just say they're for microscopy purposes.

Once you colonise the jars with spores you keep them warm and away from sunlight for two weeks. Inside the jars the spores will create mycelium and eventually turn the entire jar into a big fungi mass. You take this out, place it in a terrarium and keep the humidity high and the light low and the mushrooms come out within a week (where I am at the moment).

The point is that your everyday reality is the same too. Your sober model of reality is just a model altered by neurochemicals too. It's like if you were to visit two different planets with different cultures and lifestyles: afterwards you don't claim that the place you visited from the 'correct culture', but it showed you that neither culture is correct. A fish likely doesn't realise it is wet unless you pull it out of the water for a while


It feels like there is something wrong with the way I process hallucinogens in general. It’s almost always a negative experience.
I took a 50 gram dose of truffles. Zero visuals aside from the slightest sense of wall breathing and waving my hands seeming to have a longer trail-blur. I became profoundly upset at how small, spidery and succubus-like my hands were. I then spent at least 6 hours believing death did not end suffering and eternal, unescapable reincarnation into more suffering was real, and there was no way to ever be at peace or end. I talked with another person and thought that there were only two eternal, omnipotent consciousnesses in existence (Me and You), and that all of creation was a game they were playing to try to bring themselves together, and that if they ever did come together (no idea what this means) everything would cease to exist, but that this would not ever happen and they would forever suffer alone. It was possibly the worst psychological experience of my life. The idea of eternal reincarnation that I had never entertained before now scares me as much as or more than death.
Another time I took less truffles, again no visuals, but saw everything as existentially futile and tried to kill myself by holding my breath.
The problem is, both times I was then somehow less depressed and more conscientious for weeks/months afterwards, so I keep taking them. Not truffles since they seem to be the worst. I started taking 0.5g of mushrooms every two weeks so that I don’t have to trip, but still get the aftereffects. I’m increasing the dose a bit each time, but at whatever threshold it turns into a nightmare I won’t go up to again.
I fucking HATE psychedelics. I take them regularly. Idk.

I've tried growing a couple different times. First time I did what is called the Uncle Ben's Tek where you use rice in bags from the grocery store and innoculate them with spores and seal them with micropore tape. Once the bags colonize, you break them up into tubberware bins and treat them like any other grow. Keep them under light, keep the moisture good, etc etc.
People on Reddit post amazing results, and mine looked really promising until it dried out and began to mold. I believe it got taken over by trich, a common mold that contaminates grows.
So that was a bust. I ended up burying it all in my yard next to a stump, and lo-and-behold, once in a while a mushroom will pop up! I ate one and it was a-okay. Pic related, look at that fine little man.

I tried another time. This time I used the more well known brown rice Tek, and I had more results from that one. I had some fruits, but they were skinny and didn't look healthy. I harvested them when I thought things were going south, and I actually still have them dried out in a bag. That batch also got taken out by trich.

What's funny is I have no problem eating the ones that grew outside, but the ones I grew in my own closet get the side-eye and I will not eat them.

Since these two experiences, I've taken to simply buying them and paying someone else for their labor. It's worth it to me.


looks good wizzie, hope the spores spread outside. if such shrooms grow on your land easy, maybe you can grow giant puffballs outside too, also tasty

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 only walk on my days off


i got the free trial for youtube premium and download real life horror/creepy story type videos or albums by searching album *year on youtube* while walking around the countryside. its fun and theres no people if i go far enough into forests and explore abandoned houses.


>i got the free trial for youtube premium
Sage for off topic but can't you just use Youtube-DL? There are even websites where you enter the URL of the video you wish to save and it will allow you to download it on any device at the expense of looking at some banner ads.


or use newpipe if on android


I was like you. My solution was to have some yt vids on my phone and hear them while going out. Mostly coming back from work or going shopping. It's quite fun to see the city and what is in there when you are doing multiple things at the same time.

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?

The guy in that link said around 200 pounds in bench would put you in the top 10% and maybe 300 to be in the top 1% but I doubt that it's much more than 1% that can bench 200.


I'm pretty advanced so I do one legged deadlift jumping jacks supersets


That circus Instagram shit is dumb.
There are no benefits over traditional exercises other then attention and a absurdly high risk of injury.


Behind the head calf raises and bodyweight farmers walks


Deadlifts are fun, I find that most leg and back exercises are. T-bar rows, front squats, RDL's are all good fun. Lately, I have not been doing deadlifts because the platform I built in my backyard is so fucking shit, I really regret not just paying delivery for 4'x8'sheets of plywood.
I don't find myself doing very much arm/chest work, or even upper body in general(despite what I said before). If I do any upper body lifts it is usually just the overhead press, that doesn't irritate this persistent shoulder injury I have. But all of this lower body stuff is beneficial to me considering how much I cycle. I do look pretty funny, though.

As the several traveling threads prove, there are plenty of wizards who are curious about the world. Here, we talk about our traveling wishes and interests in a more abstract and general sense. What countries have you visited? What were your experiences? What countries are you curious about visiting and why? Any particular place you'd avoid like the plague? It doesn't matter if your traveling ideas are realistic or not, just share what interests you.

I was personally always more intrested in the more obscure and mysterious places that you never see on TV, and how people live there. Some islands in the middle of nowhere, certain African countries with an unremarkable present but a cool history, the mountain villages of Tibet, stuff like that. I've travelled around Europe a bit and was shocked how big a difference in culture there is between countries so close by, in the countless details of culture, food, architecture, people's temperament, and so on. I'm hoping to save up enough for a trip to Asia and/or Africa. There's a lot to experience out there.

>nazca lines


intetesting, so the reason is its geography, at least for you?



how were these countries? where did you go?


Not him, but in my experience there’s only the rich tourist areas with big hotels and the dirt poor areas everywhere else. So unless you got some wealth to spend or you’re more interested in ecotourism there’s not much.
