Any one else have horror stuff as a hobby? Like collecting weird pictures, reading creepy stories, listening to paranormal podcasts and watching horror films? I find myself drawn to it and I think it counts as a hobby if it's something you're invested in. Sort of like a modern folklore.

The conjuring Saga and the Annabel spin offs must be one of the most overrated movies I ever watched. I watched them and I almost feel asleep because of how boring they are. Are all of the James Wang movies like that? I remember when I watched the original nightmare on Elm Street the last year, which was the only movie that scared me. It has the strangeness of a dream, and the Oniric sequences should be an example of how to make a movie about nightmares.


Yeah James Wan movies suck, dunno why he is rated by some people


thanks anon, do you know any good modern horror writers?


I thought those movies were pretty bad, but they didn't piss me off anywhere near as much as Blair Witch and how overhyped that nothing burger of a movie it is.

I honestly haven't put any effort in gardening this chili plant, I just placed the seeds in the pot with dirt and this how it turned out a few weeks later. It's pleasuring seeing it growing day by day and im looking forward eating the chilli once its red.
It has such incredible calmness to it..

What are the small things that gives you some joy in this 'life'?

Something tells me you are being retarded on purpose as bait to derail the thread.


Fan-films that are better than the official versions.


Isn't that the fundamental principle of Stoicism kek


No, it is more like a really shitty version of a postmodernist deconstruction, which in its self aims to isolate words from context to destroy meaning.


You're the one who said context gives things meaning.

I was watching this random documentary about agriculture and it occurred to me that documentaries are really easy things to lose yourself into, so I thought about creating a thread to share and discuss any interesting documentary about anything that might be entertaining.

Documentaries can get political so try to tone it down and not argue their ideological merits here if it comes to that.

A documentary I just watched about the colonization of America. It's kind of meant for the ADD american audience in that there's a lot of cheesy reenactments instead of just stating facts. It's pretty watchable though and the 3 hours passed quickly. I really like this subject though so I might be biased.


Titanium: Kroll Method


Titanium: Armstrong Method


Holy shit, Armstrong method looks like it's a million times better and easier than the Kroll method with its 23583 furnaces requiring 100000 degree heat.


I think you are mixing up the documentary thread for the Educational Youtube videos thread that is right here

Don't give up. I bet you can get one. Check out this website for a range calculator for motor/battery. It's a pretty fun tool to use

you drank the norman coolaids muh egonomik prollapse meme as states reopen for the summer? Lmao are you 15 or just a third worlder? Better save up your precious fiat since it'll come in handy when society ends. Paper > a means of transportation. If you own a car you should get sum cash for it before we prolapse.


>spend my food money on a toy
It's transport. More reliable & cheaper than cars. Usefulness depends on user.

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?

Does anyone here use comfy instant food or kits for making something similar? Pic is a reusable cup for cooking with small refill packs of noodles.

I have one of those plastic microvave dishes made for cooking the bricks of ramen noodles fast.
Has a fill line so it comes out the same every time, I then pour it into a paper bowl, add the seasoning, and stir.
Make making ramen even easier and faster, while being much cheaper then cup noodles.

Nice! I also have been looking into getting a Lomejor or Itaki meal cooker. It would make cooking more convenient.


A sliced tomato and onion in 1:1 proportions, salt and pepper, mixed with sour cream has been my evening meal every day in last several months


SANDWICHES everyday. Change bread & ingredients to suit yourself.

What? Really? Nobody likes Lego here? I thought this was a popular hobby, especially among our kind. For me? Its the Time Twisters.

It's software, you can just pirate it.


oh, you said "modular building kits" so it sounded physical. I guess you just meant collections of assets? At any rate I could save a lot of money just using the various softwares for Lego design. But I much prefer having something physical I can handle and thus I spend 100s of my hardly earned dollars on Lego.


You probably already know of this, but lego has free software where you can design your own kits, and then even order the parts from lego so you can make it in real life.


actually I didn't lol. I knew about Bricks and Pieces but I didn't know there was this kind of functionality. Thanks, my man.

I didn't notice the last one is on auto-sage.

Finally finished Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Took me a year I think to get to end of it, this isn't the kind of book you can read normally, I had to stop to take breaks, sometimes I put it down for months. It isn't about comprehension, I understood what Nietzsche was saying in most cases. It is the lyrical form that annoyed me, lots of poems and songs in this one.
As for what I read: I agree and disagree. There are things which he hit spot on, like pity being harmful and focusing on this life on Earth instead of nonsensical tales about after lives. But the idea of eternal recurrence is just plain idiotic, I think it stems from Christianity still or other oriental religions, death is the end of it and that's all - no matter how you try to name it: Heaven, reincarnation or eternal recurrence it is just a pathetic hope that death isn't final. Actually, Nietzsche's thought process reminds me of Christianity in many ways, ironically: like praising suffering, not being content with hedonism, the idea that life is eternal, the Overman basically just replacing God etc.etc. Seems like a twisted and "negative form" of Christianity. Well, that is just my own two cents. I'm no expert on philosophy.

>Howard Hughes: The Untold Story
This was okay, but way too much space was devoted to his sex life. He was really shady, almost sociopathic, when it came to succubi (he'd do things like propose marriage to get a succubus to have sex then never call her again). The authors argue his OCD was behind his compulsive womanizing. There was very little real info about his CIA involvement or his business dealings. The authors seemed bored by this part of his life and always digressed back to whichever succubus he was seeing at the time. I did like the last chapters that detail his final years as a mentally ill recluse. Very bleak and wizardly in a way.

Most of the libraries here are still closed due to the Coronavirus, so this is the only Hughes bio I could find.

I'm reading pic related at the moment, which is split into two parts; the latter part is an overview of various pessimistic philosophers, with Schopenhauer being a big focus. It's an interesting insight into Schopenhauer. I'm also about to continue to reading In The Presence of Schopenhauer by Michel Houellebecq.

There must be a reason why almost all of the cartoons is calarts style. Maybe is because of the time they spend on the story

Why Sym-Bionic Titan was cancelled? I heard it’s because of the supposed toys the series have to sell for being on air, but I don’t remember seeing any titan related toy. It’s a shame the show was cancelled. It was way better than adventure time and steven universe. The last thing I heard it was about sony trying to buy the series, but I don’t know if they did it.


That isn't really true. The only reason why there aren't too many shows with similar edge is because of who the current batch of popular creators are. Network executives and the like have no problem with shows with a bit of edge if they think it will sell. Especially on streaming services where you have tons of fully edgy and unrestrained animated programing for a slightly older audience.

My only real issue/constructive criticism is that although I'm aware it's about AG and therefore his main focus, having it be a duet with Cherri Bomb instead of it just featuring her makes her spunky scenes feel off balance with Angel Dust's more serious tone.

But that's just me. Everything else checks out. 6.5/10

Do any of you pass the time with worldbuilding? It's been a hobby of mine for quite some time. Pic related is the map of the project I'm working on at the moment. The digital version doesn't look great at the moment, I'm going to work on beautifying it later.
Back on Magicchan there was an anon who was really interested in Central Asian culture and history, and he inspired me to look into it myself. I thought it would be cool to do some worldbuilding around that idea, so that was the initial idea behind this setting. I'm curious if other wizards have their own settings and what they are like if so.

Not long. Like I've said, I'm not original. I just found a map of ancient Rome, cleaned it up, and added my own twist to it. You can still recognise some areas on the modern map of Rome. Same with the port, which is based on the Roman port of Ostia.

Even now I'm still adding things as I just realised I've no prostitution area (red light district) in a port of all places, plus no granary for imported wheat. Added a bunch of fresh-water reservoirs and firewatch stations as well(Hastily beefed up in the chaotic year of emperor Ablag 150 years ago, to try and win popularity from the mob after the infamous emperor Oren was assassinated by panicking senators during a mob revolt when rumours circulated that he played the flute during a lavish dinner party while Imperial City burned).

(Literally just went with the flow and "made" that last bit up just now, and am going to copy-paste it into my lore notes for the history of Imperial City. Can you guess what this highly original bit of lore is based on?) God I love world-building!

Currently reading Robert Grave's very interesting interpretation of Greek myths. Will probably use that as the basis of Eleven society in this world. Still a lot to tinker with.


ever consider making a 3d map? the fact you are using the geography of rome makes it easier to start. you can just get the geo data and make a heightmap and use that to guide placement of your structures

i think that or just working in 2d but as vectors could be nice too


I haven't a clue how to do that and it sounds like too much work in MS Paint. I have descriptions in my notes and an idea of the layout in both this world and Aria with the 2D maps, I'm happy enough with that.


Never created anything myself but fictional maps have always fascinated me. Here are a few I've collected in case someone finds them useful: mega.nz/folder/qSIUUA5D#jddvHexHoKNZjbF5n01jwg

What are some hobbies that don't involve consuming anything? You purchase a 1 time item and very rarely if ever have to replace it. Learning yo-yo tricks would be a consumptionless hobby in this case. There are obviously thinks like whistling or playing the spoons too. The idea is it has to make as little foot print as possible while being something you can develop and grow at. Drawing wouldn't count because you need paper.

Now that I think about it there was a faggot that trolled the fitness thread in much the same way.


yo-yos don't break more often than boardgames. I don't know much about tabletop, but there's bound to be something that doesn't rely on buying new stuff constantly? Could also get into some older game like Smash Bros: Melee or CS1.6


what's the motivation behind this thread

are you building an underground bunker and stocking it with consumption-free entertainment that will survive indefinitely or something


I would like a decent yo-yo. Every yo-yo I had has always been a cheap unbalanced piece of shit with string too thick it kept getting caught in the yo-yo.
