WWE is scared of another Rock or Austin so much they bury their own stars for people like Roman. Vince has never really forgiven Rock for moving to Hollywood and leaving him high and dry. Same with Austin walking out. So now Vince apparently wants to make the company the star and the wrestlers have to be interchangeable twitch/reality tv people where one leaving is replaced by another from the back room.

Any Bray Wyatt marks around these parts of the internet? The Undertaker was my favorite wrestler as a kid, I just love the archetype of the high powerlevel supernatural wrestler who makes rare appearances to fuck shit up, so it was kinda given that I took a liking into Bray Wyatt. His early crazy southern priest interpretation was cool but I'm also into the new Fiend stuff. He's mostly being booked like an absolute geek but I still love the whole character and the showmanship around him. Just let him win, Vince.

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 just use a cheap android tablet for reading e-books and the like. Never had any compatibility issues, and I read a lot and have tested many different file formats.

An Android tablet is far more versatile too than these e-reader devices. I think I spent about $200 on mine around 5 years ago and it still works well (they're probably cheaper nowadays). I got so much use out of it that the faux-leather case is literally falling apart from wear.

They're really useful for traveling anywhere too since they're a compact form of near-limitless entertainment, and you can use it for basic computing tasks like email, online shopping, or internet browsing. They can also be comfy for watching TV in bed.

I'll definitely be buying another one once my current one eventually dies. Also, I would look into refurbished devices instead of buying new.

>go tired of windows shopping

Well, I posted in the thread already but what I'd like to ask is:

I'm sick of lurking around wondering, is there a device with e-ink that is not android that has no restrictions and can read cbz (and has text to audio synthesis) of which is the size of a typical manga and costs a bit under or around 100 usd?

They have weird offbrand Chinese ones that show up then immediately get bought, then show up on another seller, unless on ali, so with how much of an unfortunate bum I am I figured I'd just go ahead and ask someone.

About hacking, I figure would hacking brick it? Won't android's, though recommended, try to control you and also have planned obsolescence in their software design, even hardware design?

I've already used calibre to make all books txt so I can read them on any shabby device and even have my pocketgo v1 reading to me (that's a gp2x sort of thing, for emulation of old consoles really but it has text reading capability and text to audio) randomly (sounds bad really but it's a cool device to me anyway and it can show the text of course though it's a bit small for even normal reading I'd figure) but honestly manga I've never had a convenient small device for as tablets look bad when cheap on their sides in portrait mode.

Well, my overall point is that I know nothing about the weird offbrand ones if they often have no actual title but have a familiar hardware design. Do they have stores? They claim to have real e-ink and can read cbz, some claim it, but I just don't know.

The two types I keep staring at are this one and preferably this one as they come up a lot and that second ones seems to claim cbz and the other generally does not claim to be able to do it. I take it they are both bad but still. I assume they are both terrible in some way? These two designs that have no specific title nor name?

Also I don't like the idea of a touch screen.

I'm thinking that the pocketbook might be my best option and lurked enough to see someone claim most can do cbz? I'm reading and pondering ereaders_101, the wiki link, right now. It mentions not cbz in it though is nice to see.

If I learnt a new language it would probably be German because I know a bit from school or Japanese because I could start absorbing little bits from anime and get some of the practice without effort.
I guess I should just pick one and stick with it but I couldn't decide which one so instead I did nothing for years.

Another option would be a mediterranean language so I could move to a beautiful place with good weather.
I should have done it when I could be neet, now I don't know if I'll get around to doing it.

The fraction of words you would pick up from anime is like a grain of sand compared to what you actually need to be functional in Japanese. You really need a solid reason to learn a language if you want to be motivated to keep at it.

I've been improving my Japanese and reading some novels now. One thing I need to start doing more is watching more Japanese films and series to get better listening skills. On another note, I took a kanji test recently. It consisted of knowing the kanji and each reading for which my results were around the 750 kanji. Those are not counting the ones I only recognized and didn't know the readings which would have put my estimated kanji level at around 900. I've still got a long way to go for the joyo.

I have always loved the beautiful and relaxing hobby and tradition of writing letters to express a message. Its forms may be varied but the essence is the same. Undoubtedly something very human.

What do you think? And, do you also like to write letters or any subject related to writing?

I like old typewriters. There's something about objects that have "This express purpose and this purpose only" that feels incredibly engaging and beautiful. I usually find myself writing what others would consider "good blog posts" whenever I've had the chance to sit down at a typewriter.

I remember finding this stationary drawer of my grandfather's. It was all immaculately organized. He had three different sets of pens depending on which kind of print he would use (print, cursive, or gothic), and he would carefully choose his paper and envelopes with extreme care. I have one letter that he sent me when I was a child (<10, probably <5), and his vocabulary was…honestly it wasn't until I finished college that I could even understand his letter.

I've found myself appreciating when people find ways to put in a million tiny details into what is usually considered the most mundane tasks now.

I now consider researching conspiracy theories to be a hobby of mine. Of course, as a hikki, this information is of literally no use to me whatsoever, and I do not have the charisma to "educate" others. It is simply a pastime.
Many people act like simply researching these very alternative ideas is damaging in and of itself. Popular on wizchan youtuber named "K9 Aversion" recently announced she will no longer be creating content simply because people among her fanbase were discussing 5G towers and anti-vaxx ideas within her communities. Discussion alone is so offensive? Why? I do not even believe many of the ideas proposed myself and just enjoy thinking about them.
Because of these extreme reactions, I feel it necessary to give this disclaimer. Again, I do not necessarily believe the things proposed in this thread but rather enjoy thinking about it.

Please do not discuss theories that are political in nature in this thread. I don't want it to be deleted, although I find them interesting as well.

Some examples I've been thinking about lately:
- Alien abductions are real, however they differ from the normalfag idea of an alien abduction in that real abductions occur spiritually and not physically. And these abductions are NEVER to your benefit and you leave very unhealthy and emotionally damaged. They happen during the sleep normally, however sometimes they can happen while awake and when this happens it's similar to a date rape drug– you have a 2-5 hour blank spot in your memory when you "wake up" and have a feeling of general unease.

- The extension of the flat earth theory which claims the entire sky is a hologram, and sometimes that no planets except Earth exist. There are many youtube videos that document sky hologram "glitches".
- Alternatively (not flat earth related), that the sky is itself a giant living organism and that it sometimes sends shards of itself down to attack or observe people (they look like blue blankets and fly at great speeds.)

- You can fall through the ground like a video game glitch and get stuck in an infinite void on certain parts of the planet.

- Dinosaurs existed up until the early 1900's as evidenced by dinosaur tracks on the top layer of the earth that are way too well preserved to be from 60,000,000 years ago.

- Some gnostic wizards think that if they become spiritually elevated enough that they can cease ingesting food of any kind and live heaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

you havent mentioned any conspiracy theories, you just like the paranormal. there has only ever been one conspiracy (worth talking about), and that is that occultists rule the world. if you realize this then things like politics dont matter anymore.

>>53624
thats not a conspiracy theory, youre just a solipsist. if you think your mind is the only thing that exists, its the most fundamental fuck up you could ever make in life. if you dont think that a higher power exists, then you think you are the highest power, and therefore you decide what is right and what is wrong. every door to evil has been opened up, you can kill, steal, torture, and get away with it, because you are the one who decides if you get punished or not.

being a solipsist also blocks off every path to knowledge there is (unless you unironically think you are god, which if you do i cant really do anything). if you dont believe a higher power gave you a working brain, then who did give you a working brain? there is no way to know if you a solipsist, because you would be using a potentially faulty brain and potentially faulty reasoning to answer the question, therefore all knowledge is unknowable. all knowledge and the search for the truth hinges on one belief, that it can be found. this is why no occult school in the world will allow atheists in, they are unteachable.

Our subconscious spirit remembers our past and it tends to manifest into the things we create. Art, music, film, even videogames.

Final Fantasy XIV is a retelling of human history and each umbral calamity has coincided with a high point in each civilization in our history. The sixth umbral calamity brought down the people of Nym (Atlantis) and the 7th has or hasn't happened yet. The map attached is from the game and is clearly an imitation of Earth. The bottom left is Africa, right Asia, and the evil empire is the Europeans in the North.

https://finalfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Umbral_Calamity

Of course I realize the writers was heavily inspired from our own real life myths and legends. It's easier to have a base than to start with a blank canvas. The important part isn't that it's a ripoff, but rather our subconscious tends to try and make things from our past lives a reality. Like imbibing yourself to the point of blackout and trying to piece the events of the previous night together.

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?
