After Reading Fingerprints of the Gods and Magicians of the Gods, I wonder if it’s possible the existence of an ancient and lost civilization like those books described. I know a couple of books who give more evidence of that. 2 books written by the Spanish investigator Javier Sierra, called: En busca de la edad de oro and La Ruta Prohibida, if you want to read them. But, the only book I know who gives a serious proof of that is Hamlet’s Mill. That makes me think if the civilization is cyclical and the event that erase a possible civilization could happen again to us. Just think about it.

Graham Hancock has some interesting ideas, and it's fun to speculate about lost human history, but this dude literally says that it's possible ancient humans had the ability to make things levitate by using some forgotten technology, which is supposedly how the pyramids were built, which is bullshit. That, and he used to smoke an ungodly amount of cannabis every day while writing some of his books. He's incapable of separating his academic history/archeology studies from his ayahuasca-induced spiritual beliefs. Just because there was a mass extinction event before the last iceage does not mean it destroyed some advanced shamanistic utopia.

He's still alive. The crazy thing to me is how the UFO sightings by the US navy released a couple years ago all support his claims he made decades ago, the sighted aircraft seem to use the exact same method of manipulating gravity in order to propel it forward, technology that seems thousands of years more advanced than our own. And, the US government revealed they still have an institution dedicated to investigating these phenomenons, and they don't have an answer either. It'll be fascinating what this is going to develop into over the next century, I hope I don't die before first contact is made

The US has plenty of cryptids and ghosts. You're just not looking hard enough if you think the Us lacks paranormal mascots.

¿Is Marvel publishing Conan comics again? I thought that was impossible. Conan is basically everything the new Marvel writers hate.

Yes they are. I haven't been following it too closely because there's only few issues out yet and I like to binge but so far it's been more or less the same vibe you get from the original Conan The Barbarian, only the art is current year. The Savage Sword of Conan is also pretty close to CtB, which imo shouldn't be. They should aim to copy the original Savage Sword like CtB now is going for the original CtB footsteps. Going for a more gritty approach, maybe even b&w art, who knows, right now there isn't a difference between the two titles, I don't know who would be purchasing both, but there's always hardcore fans out there. All in all, both those titles feel rushed as hell and are of mediocre quality.
About new Marvel, I assume you're talking about agenda-driven identity politics.

For people with those sensibilities, Marvel is putting out a third series based on Conan's universe called Age Of Conan. It's focused on female characters like Belit and Valeria. Belit was pretty bad but I heard Valeria is decent, I'll check it for myself eventually, she was always too much of a smug swashbuckler for my taste but who knows, I'll give it a shot.

Anyone else waiting for the upcoming Dreadstar comic coming out soon? It's been 30 years since the last story came out. I'm really, really curious about this one. Jim Starlin had an accident few years ago that fucked up his hand pretty bad but apparently he recovered and this comic supposedly will come out by the end of this month. Let's hope it's good!

¿The comics written by Brian K Vaughan are enjoyable? I’m looking for some apocalyptic comics, and Y: The Last Man is one of the most recommendable in almost every comic’s site. Also, are Saga and Paper succubi worth reading?

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.

I autistically listen to spooky greentexts tts channels on normietube. I check my favorite channels for this pretty much every day, as well as downloading my favorites into a large (something like 200+) collection. Some of these are compilation videos though, and I need to organise them better.

Crucifax is basically a dark retelling of the Hamelin Flautist, and a rant against the scholar system, which doesn’t let the counselors help the students. Mace, the villain of the novel, offers the teenagers the things they want, even if that could kill them. The story begins after all of the teenagers of San Fernando Valley have the felling of something dreadful will happen. It is a good example of 80s horror, the scene with mace in the sewers has to be the most disgusting thing I ever read in my horror file. The novel talks about things like teenagers problems, real problems like drug addiction, teenage pregnancy, Incest (Jeff wants to fucks his sister, even if he knows that’s disgusting) but, Ray Garton is not justifying it like George R. R. Martin. And real ways to help young people with problems like that.

I really liked “The Events at Poroth Farm” but, I couldn’t stand the protagonist. A college slacker who wants to fuck everything of feminine sex, who is also procrastinating an essay about the history of horror. Sarr and his mother deserve more protagonism, they were the only likable characters, especially his mother. She knew something bad was going to happen since she was a succubus. If you are looking for a Novel were the evil and the knowledge, with echoes of Lovecraft, can be found in the streets, read this.

How can I start up a website. I know how to get a domain but I heard you need a 'server' (which from what I have researched, is basically hard-drives/a PC tower that your website is connected to) for it to work, in that case where can I buy on or the parts to make one.
Also what programming language should I learn to make one? javascript, html…

I had plans for writing this elaborate fanfiction, or fancomic, after being inspired by Paper Mario: The Origami King. Alas, the same uncontrollably convoluted anxiety that probably killed Livecorpse (and me too if I hadn't fled the country sooner) has once again bested me, even if it was by a fraction and less dramatic.

I leave the entire finished plot here for anyone's interests, be they to genuinely adapt it, be inspired by it, or do what "great artists" do (for good or bad, it's nothing but deja vu to me anymore).

Cheers.

There should be absolutely no difference between the feeling you have when you're meditating and the feeling you have when you actually get the thing. Trying to attain the desired state is a difference. Feeling the desired state in your head instead of in reality is a difference.

Less that 3 weeks ago I finished Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre. I liked it as much as everyone loves the part that everything is pretty much meaningless - even if Sartre ends with creativite is a way out of it all. Yet, i wanna know more why i should or should not kill myself. Since both is equal meaningless, life or death. To keep it shorther than i already dragged this out, i want to read more of Excisteanalism. Im thinking of reading Albert Camus - Stranger. But besides it i also want to read something thats not a Novel. Recommednation?

My hobby is trolling and cyber stalking people. Does anyone else share this amazing interest. I understand it is a bit weird, but it's my only interest. I have 40+ instagram accounts larping as various females and males, to catfish my way into various random normies lives and gain followers. Every larp has a distinct personality and it's own internet friend group. I also do this on twitter, and facebook. Anyone else share the interest?

The only sad part is none of my friends know who I am ,I am a 48 year old wizard neet. But through these personas, I can be anyone I desire.

I like wrecking sites with sophisticated trolling techniques.
Right now I'm having a blast with a bit of a project. I can't really give away the details, but a rough outlime would be:
>make a thread pretending to have a lofty purpose.
>smear it with the usual bait and slurs
Eventually someone bites. It's not like I am too subtle doing this, the purpose is, after all, trolling the shit out of the place. I try to make it look hostile as possible, while still pretending the thread to be about benefitting mankind and society, so as to maintain plausible deniability. The goal is to drop the overall quality of the site. You wouldn't believe this but as obvious as this sounds, people are stupid enough to keep it up and keep fueling it,
The usual trolling techniques are all in effect, including samefagging, misrepresenting the other posters, and ad-hominems.
I'm actually having a blast because the site I'm on lends itself to this really well in spite of it's pretention of keeping quality and civil discussion, but in reality it's a sort of /pol/ in disguise.

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.

It's as >>56186 says, there are connecting bridges (aka vestibules or gangways) in most modern trains, many are wheelchair friendly too. You shouldn't be more than a car away from a toilet except for the 4th car. I also tried to keep the wheelchair seats in the same car for convenience. But like I said, I want it to be modular so you can have it in any configuration you want.

>>56188
Are you confusing toilets column with the wheelchair space column? Cars 1 to 4 all share the two toilets in car 2. Still 150 people sharing 2 toilets compared to the 300 peasants sharing the toilets in economy, but you get what you pay for.
