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 use whatever my mother buys for me, that is cheap sneakers, for as long as I possibly can. Buying clothes is a massive pain so I'd rather not think about it too much.

I walk barefoot. Used to walk a ton until a hamstring injury 2 years ago. I walked 3.5 mi today. Used to walk 10 mi several times a week. I've only done that 3 or 4 times this year. While I was injured I started playing games more which is why I haven't gotten back into it.

I can run on gravel. I even like fine gravel.

The start's not very interesting. Graduated from highschool, layed around all day every day refreshing wizardchan.org. I went on little 1 mile walks most days.Eventually my mom got me some boots. I wore them and my feet were too wide. Just walking once I felt my toes click, the bunions probably getting worse. I have untypical bunions in the same place my mom did. My mom got surgery for them around that time. So I just took off the boots while walking and I had no need for shoes cause I didn't go to stores or anything. Every day I walked until I got calluses, sometimes they burst. I walked on a place with gravel every day. It took about a week until I never got calluses. I got drunk and jumped on gravel until it hurt and continued and walked on glass and had no problems. Eventually I stopped walking so much and my feet got soft again and a year later I started over. My feet have been tough ever since. The only thing I don't like to walk on is spiny plants.
I was once walking on some coarse gravel and there was a guy doing pushups on pull up bars at that park. Two guys walked by and pointed at me and said I was the really strong one. It impresses people but it's really easy to train. This is just what a normal animal's feet are like.
In winter people always ask me about it and I just say I'm used to it.

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

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.

Thread dedicated to digital and internet privacy talk.

Recommend literature and software, discuss any news on the topic, provide advice.

In this day and age when the presence of Big Brother, be it governments or corporations, is particularly felt, I'm ashamed to admit I possess an utterly basic knowledge of everything related to privacy and protecting your identity on the Internet.
Personally, I'm not computer-savvy, but would like to know more about any privacy measures and what goes into them. If anyone could provide good resources on the matter I'd appreciate it.

Anyone here grow autoflowers?

Is switching from 20/4 to 18/6 by late flower beneficial? Will I encounter issues? Will it do anything at all? Wanted some growers input on this.

reducing the amount of light autoflowers get just reduces the amount that they grow by, there is no benefit.

Don't night periods increase resin and trichome production? So in theory wouldn't letting the buds fatten up until week 4 or 5 of flower and than inducing 2 hours of night give you large resinous buds?

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.

haven't seen much of the world unfortunately. I would especially love visiting some of the beautiful nature reserves in the USA. Early days of lockdown were great even for my country: i could walk all day long without seeing too many people. With everyone being tired of lockdown, many not wageslaving and nice weather it's become an overcrowded shithole again where you can't sit a park without normies disturbing the peace by being loud and obnoxious.

Talking about drugs, god, the universe, quantum-physics, consciousness, all meme subjects of people that watch Joe Rogan podcast and think that makes them smart.
Instead of watching this 20min garbage, how about you sit through a 2 hour youtube seminar of a harvard physicist?
Exactly, you'd rather feel smart for 20mins than actually learn something.

I'm a bit confused about what exactly you have a problem with. Do you think that it's impossible to present ideas about "drugs, god, the universe, quantum-physics, consciousness" in formats other than college lectures? Or do you think that only the intellectual elite has a right to discuss these things? You didn't bring up anything specific from the show so it's difficult to understand.

 No.53882

>>53881
I don't have to explain it, it's clear to anyone watching the show that it completely lacks nuance and is a lazy attempt to appear smart. There has been a trend lately to create 'wacky' animations that all rip from adventure time, RnM and the rest, yet they just do it so badly that it's worth calling out.
In the end it my opinion, so take it or leave it.

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 eat instant mashed potatoes pretty often. Just heat water in a teapot, put instant potatoes, butter and salt in a bowl then pour the boiling water over them, mix together & add milk. I just eat it with rotisserie chicken & bbq sauce. It takes no effort to prepare and you don't have to wash anything except a bowl and a spoon.

In the morning just eat instant oatmeal or cornflakes with whole milk and throw in some blueberries so you don't get scurvy.

You could just bulk cook rice (just drop it in a pot with boiling water) and chicken (cut into small pieces and throw on a pan, If it's non-stick you can skip oil even). It's way cheaper than pre-packaged ready food and still takes very little time to prepare if you plan a little bit ahead (say, 5 days or so, Just put everything in containers so it doesn't spoil).

Not sure why but i can eat this stuff every day for years and i just don't care, Cooking tasty food seems like a waste of time for me, I don't even bother with adding salt or spices.

 No.53824

if you have depression your problem is inflammation. Eat more greens and fewer carbs parcticularly wheat. I'd recommend intermitant fasting as well.

'deenz once a day
vit d3 tablets
iodine (salt or kelp tablets)
beans

the easy meal is rice topped by a salad topped by fish and a few fried eggs. Forget cooking just eat well

One reviewer told how he's editing his video for an hour, then takes a break for about 20 or less minutes to play videogames, then back to editing and so on.

 No.53820

for videogames it can help to learn how they are made. so you appreciate the textures and tilesets, the music and sound effects, the character models and geometry, and interface, etc, and think about how everything works. i can pretty much play anything now because i mostly focus on that stuff

i'm sure if you approach other things from a different angle it can seem more interesting as well
