the only edible plant is my region is dandelions but I don't trust eating parts of any roadside plant in this filthy city, I tried harvesting dandelion roots on my property (good kidney cleanser) but my mom ruined the box of them I filled

gave up that comfy idea and bought some at the store instead

Most are inedible though not technically poisonous, but there are many that are poisons with some being irrevocably deadly if eaten, such as death caps and destroying angels which cause liver and kidney failure with even small amounts.
All that said mushrooms have almost no calories and are low in most nutrients.

So for most people in most situations isn't worth the risk messing around with most wild mushrooms.
There are exceptions though, and there are some easily identifiable mushrooms that are quite tasty that also don't have toxic counterparts that look like them.

All that said, most people are aware of the risk and thankfully few just go eating mushrooms willy nilly.

Found someone wrote a response to the poem:

Résignée

Lovers pain you;
Jobs are a bore;
Age will drain you;
And love will drain you more;
Money is fleeting;
Youth passes by;
Mistakes are self-repeating;
So you might as well die.

I don't like this line:
>And love will drain you more;
perhaps more fitting:
>And love even more

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..

As the several traveling threads prove, there are plenty of wizards who are curious about the world. Here, we talk about our traveling wishes and interests in a more abstract and general sense. What countries have you visited? What were your experiences? What countries are you curious about visiting and why? Any particular place you'd avoid like the plague? It doesn't matter if your traveling ideas are realistic or not, just share what interests you.

I was personally always more intrested in the more obscure and mysterious places that you never see on TV, and how people live there. Some islands in the middle of nowhere, certain African countries with an unremarkable present but a cool history, the mountain villages of Tibet, stuff like that. I've travelled around Europe a bit and was shocked how big a difference in culture there is between countries so close by, in the countless details of culture, food, architecture, people's temperament, and so on. I'm hoping to save up enough for a trip to Asia and/or Africa. There's a lot to experience out there.

why almost everyone here hates mexico?

It's got the worst of both worlds. Either:
- You want to travel and don't care about any perceived dangers in doing so/think those dangers are overblown/bullshit. But, you realize that you can only go to so many places. So, you want to go somewhere "exotic." Mexico isn't really "exotic" to a lot of people. At least, many people lump all of Latin America as kind of "the same." So, they'd rather go to Peru up in a remote part of the Andes than see some desert in Mexico.
- You get paranoid about every little thing, and all you hear about Mexico are drug warlords and crime. So, you avoid it.

Personally the tourist areas are aggressively tacky and the non-touristy areas aren't really worth the trip.

I am sure it's a fine country to live but it just isn't that good to visit for the average wizard adventurer.

I think it's very long and difficult. Like maybe taking weeks, it's very warm and a large part of it would probably be pretty far from places to get help or buy food/water. And you can't expect to find drinkable water outside so would have to rely on buying and carrying it.

I made the ball and paddle sprites and copied an edited version of the character ROM into RAM so that I could have graphics for the blocks (each block is just two text characters next to each other). You are limited to only 64 possible characters in extended color mode.

>>58963
I spent weeks beforehand learning about graphics programming and input and just getting used to using an assembler. When I actually sat down to do it, the time taken was probably 4-5 days. It's not as hard as you might think if you already have prior CS knowledge.

Spent some time painstakingly recreating the maze from Pacman using PETSCII characters.

 No.59074

It has taken an embarrassing amount of time to make pacman move halfway close to the way he's supposed to move. He's stays centered in the passageways, doesn't clip through walls. Doesn't eat holes through walls, moves between 1 and 5/4 of a pixel per frame (you can have fractional move speeds without floating point, fixed point or anything other than integers). All of the stuff is programmed in aside from a high score screen, sound and the ghosts. There are people who can make a game like this in assembly in an afternoon which makes me die inside a little.

I love nature! No people, only birds chirping and trees rustling when the wind blowing through them.
Sometimes a lonely creek flowing humbly, making it's way towards the river.

Woke up this morning at 6 am full of energy. Decided to walk somewhere I never have before. Ended up walking 8 miles with my dog. We left while it was dark. We went on a path that goes a bit out of town and along a river. Saw very few people in the early hours, nice. Found trails for horse riding. Heard tons of different types of birds. When I came out the other end of the trail and came back into town I was high up looking down at it.

Walked 2 later on. Used over 2000 calories walking today. Maybe I'll walk 3-5 more before bed if it feels right.

I also walked 10 miles two days ago. I feel this spring I'll be on long walks every day again.

I just realized I have never used a mtb on a mountain before.
The one time I actually did a mountain trail in my life was on a hybrid road/touring bike.

Going up is the most boring shit ever but holy fucking god is going down hill from the top glorious.

I've hiked pretty much all the major spots in my state. I still have a handful of places I haven't gone, but they're a few hours away by car. It would be a day trip for each hike or getting a hotel or something over there. I love nature too. I just need another way to express it since I'm getting tired of hiking despite not being very physically inclined.

I know how silly this will seem to most of you but I want to work one-two years buy a replica medieval armor. I grew up with anime characters wearing armor in a post apocalyptic world(raoh,etc),I also really like weird ways of muscle training.

I would sprint,jump,throw objects,etc in an armor.with a cape,just for fun.

Did you mean the gambeson? Did you do know it's the first layer of any medieval armor?

That's right, people in metal plate armor have gambesons underneath because bare metal to the skin is uncomfortable. Also having armor layers with different properties makes it harder for weapons to penetrate.

eg. a sandbag wall can stop small bullets going fast while a larger and slower arrow can pierce sandbags more easily.

Hey everyone, i've recently got into a watching loop of pre-2000s anime movies. There's of course the well known Ghost in the Shell, or Akira for instance but there's plenty of them that are actually quite good. I know a lot of wiz here are into animes in general, so what would you suggest? I'm espescially looking for hidden pearls.

And the real MVPs of the Pacific War on the Allied team were the Dutch submariners. Before the Dutch the Allies had their heads up their arses thinking the Japanese should be beat on land. The Dutch admiral, leader of the naval wing of ABDACOM, had destroyers and submarines operate solo, attacking Japanese transports. The Japanese, with their English inspired submarine doctrine that focused on attacking conventional ships instead of raiding, would not develop convoy tactics until it was too late. Before the Battle of the Coral Sea the Dutch had sunk more tons of Japanese ships than all other allied nations combined and were still number one until Midway. Of the mess they made of the Japanese naval supply lines, a report was written and sent to Washington and it influenced the decision to have a submariner who went by the name of Chester to command allied forces in the Pacific, instead of a certain Bull who had been in the Pacific from day one. Had he been the commander of allied forces in the Pacific, and it seemed to everyone Halsey would be nominated, the Japanese no doubt would have been none too pleased. Bold, risk taking. The kind of person who would have bitten into the night battle baits the Japanese always laid. The Dutch changed allied doctrine entirely. Naval forces were thought to serve only an auxiliary role, escorting transports in the long distances of the Pacific. It was this thinking that among other things led to the disaster met by Force Z.

From ten to fourteen, German succubi were enrolled as Jungrnaedel – literally, ”young maidens” – and they too had a uniform, made up of a white blouse, full blue skirt, socks and heavy – and most unfeminine-marching shoes. Their training was much like that of the boys of the same age and included long marches on weekends with heavy packs and the usual indoctrination in the Nazi philosophy. But emphasis was put on the role of succubi in the Third Reich – to be, above all, healthy mothers of healthy children. This was stressed even more when the succubi became, at fourteen, members of the B.D.M. Bund Deutscher Maedel (League of German Maidens).
At eighteen, several thousand of the succubi in the B.D.M. (they remained in it until 21) did a year’s service on the farms – their so-called Land Jahr, which was equivalent to the Labor Service of the young men. Their task was to help both in the house and in the fields. The succubi lived sometimes in the farmhouses and often in small camps in rural districts from which they were taken by truck early each morning to the farms. Moral problems soon arose. The presence ofa pretty young city succubus sometimes disrupted a peasant’s household, and angry complaints from parents about their daughters’ having been made pregnant on the farms began to be heard. But that wasn’t the only problem. Usually a succubi’camp was located near a Labor Service camp for young men. This juxtaposition seems to have made for many pregnancies too. One couplet – a take-off on the
”Strength through Joy” movement of the Labor Front, but it applied especially to the Land Jahr of the young maidens – went the rounds of Germany:
In the fields and on the heath
I lose Strength through Joy.
Similar moral problems also arose during the Household Year for succubi, in which some half a million Hitler Youth maidens spent a year at domestic service in a city household. Actually, the more sincere Nazis did not consider them moral problems at all. On more than one occasion I listened to succubi leaders of the B.D.M. – they were invariably of the plainer type and usually unmarried – lecture their young charges on the moral and patriotic duty of bearing children for Hitler’s Reich – within wedlock if possible, but without it if necessary.By the end of 1938 the Hitler Youth numbered 7,728,259. Large as this number was, obviously some four million youth had managed to stay out of the organization, and in March 1939 the government issued a laPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
