No I am not that wiz, but I remember him. I get second hand embarrassment thinking about his weird fetish world. I think he was in the fap thread or the draw thread recently talking about paying people to draw big boobs on to old Hanna Barbera cartoons or something.

I simply enjoy loli and I enjoy big boobs, and sometimes I feel it is nice to combine the two. If robots can do that, then maybe robots aren't so bad after all.


fascinating. thanks for replying. im also becoming very fond of stablediffusion and ai generated stuff. until they corrupt it with ads, weird biases, and other ways to manipulate the user, the interactions with these machines feel pure and good somehow


They already censored it due to people creating child porn


what do you mean? the program itself doesnt censor anything, you can put in whatever you want. the default model might not have been trained on what you input, for obvious reasons they. but theres other models where ppl train them off porn and hentai and mix them up. if you mean services like midjourney or whatever, yeah that's their choice, it is their hardware running the program they can decide what content they want being created. you are free to just run the programs yourself tho

Just finished Star Trek TOS. I was on the third season for a while, so it might be mostly about that. I gotta say, season 1 was pretty good, season 2 had some great episodes as well, and then season 3 was mediocre at best. Sure, there were mediocre episodes in all seasons, but I think it's most prevalent in season 3. By the time I was in the middle of season 3, I felt like I was missing out on other Star Trek series in a way. I felt like I was cheated a bit by watching it. Still, I think there were goodish episodes like "All Our Yesterdays", "Spectre of the Gun", "The Enterprise Incident", etc. Honestly, I think the series had a few good episodes per season while the others were okay. There were a lot of repeats of Romans, gangsters, etc. In fact, a lot of the plots in the series revolve around either some powerful entity, person, etc. get in the way of the Enterprise, Captain Kirk and co. manage to get captured in some way, and then they finally win. There's a lot of emphasis on the "powerful entity" part of it. When I saw "The Savage Curtain", where the episode was in the style of an arena instead of a powerful enemy, it was a bit refreshing, even if they did the same thing on "Gamesters of Triskelion". The formula was worn out by season 2. I'm very glad to be done with it. Season 2 also starts with a great episode too. It's where Spock actually shows emotion for the Captain's well being. A lot of the Romulan and Klingon episodes are good too. I loved those, and there were zero in the third season.

I guess I'm trying to say that the show was on the decline. The third season had the worst effects and plots. I'm just glad to be done with the series. I've been wanting to watch Deep Space Nine for a while, so now I can start it. I'm going to wait a bit on the animated series and movies probably. I really want something more modern. Like, something from the 90s, of course!

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?

Started growing flowers to press. There is certain flowers that you can mix in drinks to help with flues' and other stuff so for myself that is something i am indulging in


I would really like to get into listening to the radio, but I lack any sort of equipment to do so. I messed around with radiogarden for a bit but it's really just not the same. Really, I'd like a nice analog tuner but they are fairly expensive, I'm not sure what would be a good re-entry apart from just buying a small portable radio from the thrift store, which just may end up in disappointment.

Does stationary deserve it's own thread? Lately I have decided I would like to go broke buying many different pens and inks after just starting out with a few. I bought a couple of Pilot Kakuno's in F and EF, which are certainly a better experience than the Pilot precise pens that I have been using for years. After, I ended up buying a converter and decided that experience is quite a bit more engaging than just replacing cartridges. Along with that order I did purchase an EF Kaweco Sport in iridescent pearl with a gold clip. Certainly a stellar looking pen, but the body material did leave a little to be desired. Regardless, it's very comfortable and smooth, save for the round grip rather than the triangular style that I prefer, but I'm still very pleased with it. After writing with a Kakuno for a little bit, I may have come to find the scratchyness of the EF tip quite endearing, it's sort of like a positive feedback mechanism.
I'm considering buying a Twsbi ECO-T with an EF nib now, but the jade color seems to not be available anymore, sadly. That particular color is available with the cylindrical grip, but I'm not sure if I want to get it. The mint blue is still available with a triangular grip, while the color is still nice, it doesn't really have the same appeal as the jade. Certainly it seems a little silly disregarding something as simple as a pen just for its aesthetic properties, but if I am buying a premium product, then I would like it to be appealing in all aspects.
Of course there would be more to stationary than just pens and writing utensils, but that is just what is on my mind at this very moment.


I smoke Cigars.
Is that even a hobby? I just consoom. Hardly a hobby but maybe worth a post in this thread I guess.
I started to smoke when I was 19. My father was a travelling company man (ala Jack from Fightclub) and I curiously asked for few cigars. It was just a curiosity I never smoked cigarettes before nor I tried any other drugs but somehow cigars stick with me. I smoked maybe 5-10 of them every year. There were years where I smoked 50 and years when I smoked none. I also started to read few books, tasted a variety of different brands and so forth. I think after 14 years I can say I developed a taste.
I absolutely detest the people who smoke cigars however. This goes beyond regular self hating or hating normies. The magazines about cigars have this retarded boomer alpha male thingie, similar to boomers riding Harley Davidson thinking they are hot shit. I never understood this association of masculinity with cigars, it is just another way of smoking tobacco. Nevermind the irony of putting a round phallic thing in your mouth is somehow "masculine".
I don't smoke pipes but they are far more chill and far less self conscious about this. You don't see a book about tobacco pipes citing Persian poetry for no reason.

I'm getting into electronics now. It's sad that I'm such a brainlet and have problems grasping electrodynamics.
I bought some tools like a soldering iron, a screwdriver set etc.
Today I tried fixing a old keyboard, but It didn't work. Hope being able to fix my own stuff soon.
I'm actually doing it so I can be qualified to be a mere computer technician in a few years. Wanna be able to troubleshoot pcs and maybe get the CompTIA A+ certification.

How is your experiments going, wiz? It has been over 4 years since this post.

Cum Town went on for years. basically just a comfy comedy podcast with 3 comedians lazily making retarded ironic (for lack of a better word) jokes and shit. massive normies, but still some seriously funny moments. good guests. massive audience so anyone they talked about got unintentionally doxxed (Tom Myer's getting heckled, Nick losing a $250,000 Superbowl advert, shit like that).

kind of a love or hate thing. so many episodes that I still listen/re-listen to them while playing video games, you can just set it to auto-play edits.

you get Adam's gimmick of being insanely Jewish (pic related was funny) and ruining riffs. Stav's gimmick is being a fatass who's basically a laugh track who made "im gay and my dick is small" jokes for years and it got seriously old - not that he didn't have funny moments, he just got lazier as the years went on. literally left the podcast a few months ago. Nick Mullen is absolutely the glue, and honestly one of the funniest comedians alive imo. Nick took double the salary of the rest (but they make £110,000/month on Patreon alone, and they always were self-aware about being fucking stupid for what they actually do)

a few favourites:
Alt-Right Homer Simpson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Htbl-NGGSdc

Gay Batman:

Scumbag Vinny (the guest is someone who fans of the show kept harassing as being the worst guest of all time in a previous episode with Bam Margeria from Jackass):

I can't say I've ever heard them say anything funny and those linked jokes don't sound particularly funny either.


keep enjoying what you enjoy, I wouln't have brought them up if I wasn't replying to someone else. comedic taste is probably more subjective than almost any other.

I think a lot of the appeal is the feeling of hanging out with friends, which I've never really had. same with a lot of other escapism

any wizards into chess too?
it's quite interesting with its unlimited options. a way to escape the bitter reality, as well.
what's your elo rating?
your favorite openings with white and black pieces?
how much time do you dedicate for chess usually?

I mean, it has something to do with IQ.


Chess has a pretty weak correlation with IQ. At the top level it's more about rote memorization. I think even Age of Empires would have a more reliable correlation.

There's been chess grandmasters with IQs hovering around 100, I remember a thread on 4chan about it.


What software is that?


I've played it for ages while listening to other shit and can't get over ~900 or so in blitz because im not especially bright + I play intentionally goofy/fun openings. as white I like to go for the Danish gambit and as black the Latvian gambit. I've actually learned the lines pretty well but they're such dogshit openings that machines put them at like ~-3 or -4 instantly. more fun to have ridiculous open games though.


I play daily and have around 2000 10min games. Im around 1300 elo on lichess. I consider myself better than that ranking. I often play very lazy. Chess needs effort which i don't really have for everyday games.

There are certain objects that I like to collect images of just because I love how they look. I think these are things that just look oddly beautiful in a way. I'm not sure if 'beautiful' is the right word. They just seem really pleasant, I guess. If you don't mind, I wanted to share some of these, and like to hear others aesthetic sensibilities in physical objects.

This is an Olivetti Summa 15. It's an old mechanical calculator. I find it interesting because it's a cast metal piece, but the edges are rounded. The function knob is on a piece that's embossed. It's got that beige/tan look of a retro PC, but before retro PCs existed.

Also, all these things ive mentioned share certain similarities in their shapes. If someone knows how this style of design is called please tell me.

Man, the Dreamcast is a good one. I love how that thing looks. I know people always made fun of how bulky the controller was, but it always reminded me of a Manta Ray, and I love manta rays. And the triangle+circle of the lid was always nice IMO as well.

I know nothing about industrial design or even any books or how you would even begin to study it. What's the starting textbook for that?


File: 1670906057684.jpg (22.96 KB, 330x220, 3:2, stingray.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

Sorry, stingray, not manta ray. Pic for comparison.



Here in my country (Argentina) industrial design is a university major/career. They study about product developement, design, and production.


I didnt study or know anything about it, at least that it is pretty interesting, and if i had time i would do it. Here is a list with some books for beginners (yes i just googled and found em on reddit, but what gives)

Thinking Objects: Contemporary approaches to product design / Tim Parsons

The making of Design: from the first model to the final product / Gerrit Terstiege

Design for the Real World / Victor Papanek

Design, Creativity and Culture: an orientation to Design / Maurice Barnwell

Manufacturing Processes for Design Professionals / Rob Thompson

How to See: a guide to reading our man-made environment / George Nelson

The Good Life / Scott and Helen Nearing


That controller was awful.

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

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


What kinds of pipe tobacco blends do you like? Please don't say aromatics, haha. Can you suggest some high-nicotine blends?

I smoke cigars. I prefer strong ones with dark wrapper leaf.

A pipe is handy for cigar smoking though because if you get a poorly constructed cigar (or the wrapper leaf unfurls mid-smoke) you can just tear it open and smoke the tobacco in the pipe.


American Spirits, Peter Stokkebye


Been smoking a decade. Always loved me some holistic medicine. I have been puffing on some tourneys this morning. Wish they were parliaments. I have an oral fixation and the routine of going out and lighting up is an everyday part of my life.

Writing your own rudimentary IB script is a commonplace exercise. It's when you put it up for other people to look at that it becomes folly.

All you need to begin drawing is a pencil and some paper

Feel free to post any drawings of yours in this thread. Illustration, doodle, traditional, digital - anything goes. Discussion on skillbuilding techniques and fair critique of other wizards' work is welcome.

slowly getting there


sorry for late reply, im glad you liked my drawings, naw i havent drawn those games cause i never played em, i have a lot of sentimental value for timesplitters and i love the character designs

>isnt the only way to get better at drawing to draw more?

youre right but i want to get better at anatomy specifically so i think that takes dedicated study and understanding which just doodling doesnt exactly provide
