Anyone here interested in researching serial killers? I find some of their backstories and psychiatric evaluations really interesting…

I remember listing to a podcast about him while at work and the host then started reading them after describing in graphic detail what Albert had done.
When my boss asked why I had a upset look on my face all I could say is I didn't want to talk about it and kept working.
Normally I am pretty desensitized, but him sending those letters to the family of the kids he had is way with was a special kind of fucked.


I think it is interesting when people can convince themselves what they are doing is for the best in their mind and do awful things.


Pretty sure the vast majority of serial killers are under no delusion that they are doing wrong. In fact many that get caught and actually admit their crimes seem to relish the evil of their actions. They know it's bad, know it's wrong, and enjoy it all the more because of it.


putting modern philosophy into action. I am aware most think they are doing wrong and this is why I think the reverse is interesting.


How does someone that fucked up get to the age of 65?

pretty cool, thanks for sharign this wiz. im currently at https://youtu.be/yqOlY5uBBbo?t=2070

they said this tiny little plot of land is still able to produce 1500 bottles of wine though! that is interesting


>It's like instead of saying "I'm looking at an apple," a Frenchmen would say, "I hang my eyes upon a red tree-fruit."
That's because you read classical literature, most likely. That'd be like me thinking that all americans talk like they do in Poe or Melville's works.
What might throw you off in newspapers might be the writing style that journalists try to go for (often bad to passable honestly), but then that is not uncommon in this field regardless of their native language isn't it?

And I don't think it is exclusive to the french language but in school we are told that repetitions in language is one of the worst stylistic mistake one can make and should be avoided at all costs in any piece of writing that is not purely technical, like an instruction booklet.
This might be one of the reason you find some turns of phrases and word choices so weird. I would guess the same unwritten rule exists in most languages, but it is especially prevalent in french.


Does anyone have any kind of business/website and would like a software/app for it? I'm working from home so I've got a lot of free time


O.K., what the flying fuck dude? I get you're desperate, but if you're going to put effort into spamming like this, at least do it in the right places and the right times, otherwise it's not just a waste of our time, it's a waste of YOUR time , too!

First of all, you post in an imageboard. Do you know how fast you'd usually get deleted or banned for spam because the owner of the board would usually rather you pay for an advert?

Second, you post in WIZARDCHAN. Do you know what the average disposable income is here? Enough so that 90% of the userbase is on SSI or bumming off of their parents. With that kind of demographic, do you think we have money? With that kind of userbase, and the large number of mental issues we have, do you think we're entrepreneurs or businessmen with ideas for websites and apps?

Third, you post IN THE FUCKING HOBBY BOARD FOR LEARNING FRENCH. If you're going to spam, AT LEAST make a new thread in /wiz/ or some place noticeable. Ffs.

Your behavior clearly indicates why, despite possibly having programming skills, you're so fucking idiotic that you can't find work with those skills. However, if you don't even have this level of common sense, I severely doubt that anything you make could possibly be good. The ONLY thing good about your post is the fact that at least you don't have broken grammar.

I'd usually not be so harsh, but if you shit up a thread, I'll dish back hard words at you right back as a form of revenge and retaliation. Fuck right off.


>What might throw you off in newspapers might be the writing style that journalists try to go for (often bad to passable honestly)
>I would guess the same unwritten rule exists in most languages, but it is especially prevalent in french.
Dude, you're right. This was making me feel really despondent about learning this language.

Don't lie just to 'diss the lefts' on the Internet. This shit is getting old.




ah, how did i miss this thread ?
I started with a 90cc in '69, almost ended with a bmw k75c( type 0 ) in the late 80's when a logging truck ate it.
I ended with a yamaha 650 twin in the early 2k+.
I earned my 100,000 mile badge with BMW.
I worked as a mechanic for a shop that built custom racing machines.
i miss my BMW R65 US, i saw it at a grocery store a while back, the new owner is a shit head, it is still going with 200,000 + miles on it.
Poor thing.
Its too damned dangerous to ride out here anymore.


Lean or Counter-lean? Police prefer counter-lean.


For me it's all about how aggressively I am taking the turn.
If I am taking a turn hard and fast then I counter lean to get the bike down low.
If I am going relatively slow I prefer to muscle the bike around by leaning, both because I feel better in control at lower speeds doing so but also because I prefer to keep the bike upright in such situations.
Probably why most sport/super bike racers counter lean and most Enduro riders lean.

Recently I've been getting into photography. I've found that after doing so, I perceive moments in different ways. Things simultaneously seem more transient, yet more permanent. It's a sensation that's difficult to describe, except to say that I am more 'aware' of the moments around me. For obvious reasons I have avoided urban areas, but in terms of landscapes and natural shots, it is quite peaceful.

Any photography hobbyists here?

You would have a blast with this guy. It was at that translucid stage and I could see all the organs moving in there. It didn't came out in the picture at all. It was quite a challenge to get even these done. All I have is an old smartphone and a magnifying glass. It was around half cm long.

Food photography.


Is that RPGmaker? I like that cat, it would be cool if his eyes glowed in the dark

Is that a.. a ステーキケーキ??? What dark sorcery do I have to cast on my remaining living relatives for them to start cooking me these one a year?


Yeah, I'm working on a game.
My mom made this cat. It's made of two types of clay, one for the body and one for the eyes.

Post good (spoken) books in this thread.

I'll start with the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius. Such a good narration.

Of course this bug >>>/meta/60449 still exists despite the solution being provided since 08/24/21 so here's the script without code tags.

Array.from (document.querySelectorAll ('a.file[href^="https://youtu.be/"]')).forEach (a => { a.parentNode.innerHTML += ' <a href="https://iteroni.com/watch?v=' + a.getAttribute ("href").replace (/^.+\/([^\/]+)$/, "$1") + '" target="_blank">invidious</a>'; })



Are you sure you are posting in the right thread?

I don't know what you are talking about and your post looks kinda broken.


>Are you sure you are posting in the right thread?
Yes, a tool to aid in accessing the audiobooks posted here, for those who would rather avoid the yt interface, belongs in the audiobook thread.

> I don't know what you are talking about

< Many such cases. Sad!

> and your post looks kinda broken.

As already stated in >>59919 it's a bug in wizchan >>>/meta/60449 with the solution provided since 08/24/21.


If you are just going to post gibberish and meme post you can fuck off.


Glad you enjoyed it too, lol.

So…How much you pay for it?
Have you taken it to the range yet?


$600 US funbux. And I don't need a range, I live in bumblefuck county, southern U.S. so I just find a field in the countryside and set up some bottles and cans to shoot.


Not bad.
You know what I mean, did you take it out to shoot yet?


how bad is the accuracy though if you can hit cans and bottles? I didn't know the mac 11 is back


Yeah it looks good for Cerakote or parkerizing. Maybe he assumes it should be blued and therefor lustrous to some degree.

I've read A rebours, a collection of short stories (With the Flow, iirc) and some of La Cathedral. I enjoyed what I read.


i appreciate your work

sadly i finish maybe 1 book per month since i can only bring myself to read during break time at work. and it's old scifi trash… but in my own way i am also working through a log of things im interested in, authors that have similar ideas, unofficial successors to stories i like, a heaping mess that will probably take the rest of my life at this pace


thanks wizbro


I recommend The Desperate Man by Leon Bloy, Bruges La Morte by Georges Rodenbach, The Fiery Angel by Valery Burysov and Monsieur Phocas by Jean Lorrain

Re-watching Succession while the current series is airing. Literally every single character is a cunt in their own unique way, which I find kinda fun. The script feels very "politician speak". The character dialogue is heavily manipulative: "Yea, I think you made a good point, but", "I agree with you, but", "That's a good idea, but" etc.

If you're interested in a family scheming, backstabbing, playing social politics to try and gain power and influence in a global media company, I recommend it.

Just don't expect to actually like any of the characters.


I like the way they talk, full of innuendos and zany comebacks. It has a really cool flow to it that I can't explain. Even something completely banal like "Going home for a shit, shower and a shave".

Compared to something like Billions, another show about rich people, the characters are scheming, manipulative, but a lot less cartoon-ish. They're not epic masterminds or talk casually in "wise" parables and metaphors, they're very flawed, insecure people that regularly backstab each other with no real thought put into it.


Is ETERNALS any good?


It’s insane that that many new shows debut every year, and most of them don’t make it to a season 2.
I couldn’t get past an episode or two of Mythic Quest because it was too detached from what tech work is actually like. Maybe making games is different; I don’t know.
The Great was surprisingly good, but pretty vapid. It’s mostly carried by the acting and set design; if you have a soft spot for historical fiction or period dramas you’ll like it.
IIRC it was developed by the upper classes to show they were superior to normal people.
>cancelled after two seasons
Every time I REALLY like something rather than just finding it watchable, it gets cancelled. The Romanoffs was amazing (don’t start with the first episode if lefty politics bothers you), and it didn’t even get a second season. The last episode would have won awards if they’d added some filler and released it as a movie.

I've been into maps since I was a kid and would draw war plans with arrow lines striking across the map. And alternate history fantasies etc.

While I'm mostly a verbal learner, it just fascinates me the way maps can convey so much information graphically and visually.

I'm especially fascinated by cartograms, as often what we really care about is not geographic miles but population and economics. And so cartographic maps show a whole different world, often more accurate to the IRL world we live in of what matters.

This is what I meant about cartograms being a single image conveying a vast amount of data. I especially love how its color coded for GDP per capita.
