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'?

Anyone here have weird, niche interests? I’m curious about this kind of thing. I like hearing about people dedicating their lives to one specific strange thing. Post about them here.

Not weird, but kinda niche.
Mathematical and spherical astronomy. Computing celestial phenomena. Also celestial mechanics.
Calendars too, and I'm also interested in how ancient cultures modelled the celestial motions to predict events. I haven't yet, but I want to read into how the mayans did this.

dunno why it came out landscape sorry. the pencil lines on the arms are guides for engraving, after which I'll line the engrave(ments?) with dark pigment and then varnish over. I did a fuckup (the drill jumped) when I was cutting the sound holes which is why there's a weird pale bit next to one of them.


Heard of railfanning? It's dedicated towards the love of trains. Be it going to the station to see trains, posting images, discussing train schedules, loco types, arguing about Train routes,etc.


Nice. I just finished unpacking Beyond Valor. And now comes the reading, and video watching, and note taking.


i'm really into diy slime

just learned how to make this one

Anybody into SHTF related hobbies? I started with prepper stuff the past year and it was quite helpful to be prepared before normgroids started panicking with the coronavirus. I'm reading a lot on the topic and trying to improve in different skills for when SHTF, if ever. Perhaps this doesn't sounds as a very wizardly hobby but I find survivalist stuff interesting and training different skills and improvisation helps me concentrating and not being devoured by my thoughts. I think it's good for wizards

The prepper scene is full of larpers, lunatics, and useless garbage but thankfully there's people who survived through IRL SHTF events and their experiences, giving genuine and useful info for beginners. My recommendation for newbie wizards interested in this area is to read Selco (Bosnian war survivor) and Ferfal (Argentine economic collapse survivor). They're among the most genuine out there and there's lots of common points in their thoughts and advice

I am also very poor (neet) and from the UK, so I've been trying to find ways for surviving for a month for as little as possible. I've slowly been learning and researching the most cost-effective way to survive in this expensive dystopia, especially since the lockdowns and panic buying. Not easy considering how expensive food and everyday items have gotten in the past year alone. I have been assuming the worse and I will be without water, electricity and heating for the month of January (31 days).


Need: 2.5 litres a day for drinking, more for cooking, cleaning and hygiene. I've rounded this up to 10 litres a day.
Have: I bought three 100-liter water butts and have connected them to my drain pipes, still short of the 310 litres I need, but I'm hoping the wet british weather can help me there. I considered filters and stuff to make the water drinkable, but thought chlorine tablets were the most cost-effective at just £5 for 2000 litres. Another £5 for a collapsible container that can hold 10 litres for purification.
Cost: 3x£25 butts, 1x£5 tablets, 1x£5 container = £85


Need: The three main things needed from what I can see are 2500 calories, protein and vitamins. All food needs to last a long time without electricity, so fresh and frozen foods are out.
Have: Best long-term protein I could find was whey protein powder. A 2kg protein bag from a pound store contains more than enough protein, will feel filling and will last over a year. Vitamins and minerals I can get from tablets. The best value I could find was the asda brand. They have a good balance of cost and 24 vitamins and minerals compared to a dozen in the cheaper pound store brands. £3 for a 90-tablet pack, two tablets a day will help keep me healthy. I also get Omega 3 fish oil for healthy fats, £4 for 90, two a day. The calories are simple, pasta and rice provide loads of carbs and last forever, as well as other dry stuff like crackers and dried nuts and fruit. 200g of rice or pasta, a large plate, is just over 700 calories, but if you add a sauce, tinned meat or beans to this, I am confident it will all add up to over 2500 calories a day with my other meals. And if you get stuff like brown rPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


I don't know what to add but I'll thank you for the detailed post and sharing it with us. I never thought about entertainent without electricity or internet so that's a good think to consider. Thanks


Do you live in a house or apartment? I live in an apartment and started small gardening in the balcony with plastic containers and cardboard boxes. I've grow succesfully potatoes, azuki beans and carrots. Look up urban gardening projects in youtube


I assume most of those costs are one off as £1400 so far sounds very expensive. But taking out the entertainment things then the budget looks good as your buys will last for ages.
One thing you probably already know but didn't mention so I'll say it: coffee shops/fast food places and the like are a gold mine for sachets of condiments and sugar/salt. Not from the counters but from empty tables. People grab them but don't use them. I never go to coffee shops as I hate them but I have walked through them using going to the bathroom as a pretense, and then I grab all the sachets on the way. Good luck with your plan and I hope January isn't all ice and snow.


I forgot to mention I got dumbbells too (£60) and the bookshelf I made myself for about £20. Very important to keep fit and healthy during shtf.

Entertainment is important, especially in the long winter nights. It's very expensive, but if you don't think it's likely that the electric will cut for more than a few hours, then you will save a lot with all the free and "free" stuff you can do on your computer, e.g., you don't need to buy a chess board, you have chess on your computer, you don't need to buy classic books, you can download them from Project Gutenberg, etc.

An alternative is setting up solar generation so you can run your devices for a few hours each day. I'm currently looking into this, but haven't really a clue where to start. Does anyone have any good links where a retard (me) can learn about solar or even wind generation? I'm not looking to build a solar farm that can run kettles and fridges, I obviously can't afford that, I just think having a powered phone can make a lot of difference in survival.

I live in a semi-detached bungalow, with a driveway at the front and small garden at the back. I doubt I will be able to get more than a few metres of vegetables, I did get window boxes though, so I can grow strawberries or radishes in them as well.

Yes, most are one-off, my aim is to keep things I have to repeatedly buy to a minimum, which is why I'm trying to avoid things like batteries. I used to grab packets of condiments, but many places where I live have gotten wise to this and now just have common bottles. That's if the cafes are even open…

Is anyone here in to 3D modelling? Planning to start?

What programs do you use? Are you working on animation, models to publish, or building environments to render pleasantly? If you plan to export to a game engine, check out ( >>>/games/8456 )

Can models from those programs be translated into g-code?


Depends on the file types you can save as. Those programs have no way of writing g-code themselves though, and most programs that can write g-code have inbuilt modeling, so unless you want to make something quite complex you could always just model in the g-code writer.


no idea wtf g-code is but google says sketchup has plugins you can install

> How to Convert SketchUp to G-Code

>Download the G-Code plug-ins for Google SketchUp. There are three available:
>Sketchup to G-code.


G-code is machining software, though this wiz probably plans on using it with a 3d printer to print what he models.


any model that you can export as .stl can be ran through a slicer software for a 3D printer. It matters little in what program was the model made.

Hello Wizzies, what podcasts do you recommend? i enjoy going trekking while listening to some relaxing podcasts to distract me.
I am currently listening to this one about the history of Japan and it's role in WW2

A podcast on… assassinations of famous people throughout history.


When Marxists talk about redistributing wealth, it's as long as it's not THEIR wealth

I really like dead rabbit radio. It's about crime, paranormal stuff, conspiracy theories and stuff like that. Jason, the host, seems like a pretty decent guy and he doesn't talk about politics at all, something that is a rarity among podcasters. Sometimes he's pretty silly but I enjoy it nonetheless. The only thing I don't like is that the episodes are pretty short, around 30 mins, so when you catch up you have only half an hour a week of podcast. There's still over 300 episodes so you have a lot to watch.


Do they have a script or something like it or is it off the cuff babbling about a topic they googled or skimmed a book on?

I am burned out on low quality unscripted shows.


It's a single guy, he does have a script but he often talks about random off-topic stuff, but doesn't deviate from the subject that much.


Does any of you, Wizards, enjoy a good night drive, roaming around the city and bonding with your automobile?
I have an access to a car, but being well into my 30's, I don't really see the car as anything but a money sink and a way to get to place B reliably. Being a shut-in, I drive maybe once a month.
I'd like to change that, but that would require me to get a garage, because my parents cut me off, and I can't go for a ride without begging them to move their car. I'm a pushover, so that's not happening. I've been thinking of getting a Full HD camera, and maybe making music videos for vaporwave mixtapes, just so I have an illusion of doing something productive by burning gas.
What do you guys think?

Anyone know of any good guides to rice or JDMize a Honda or Toyota? Also what are your thoughts on vans? They seem to be associated with wizardly things.


yeah i enjoy riding my car to some nice music, unfortunately i have a cuck car which is boring to drive


I would love to do that, but I don't have a car right now. Maybe in 2 or 3 years.

i'm looking forward to get one of those mainly for practical purpose (killing insects) but before i'd like to know if they're reliable as such or if it's just a myth. i heard the drosera species was the one that needed the less care and thus was perfect for beginners.
if anyone has experience with those plants feel free to share your knowledge

>Pitcher plants are a lot easier.
but don't they smell like shit


I thought they smelled sweet, so as to attract more insects.


never noticed any smell


i had same experience

if you just want to kill insects there are a variety of cheap traps you can make. flypaper is absurdly effective as well


they never catch anything, i always had to trap the flies myself in a bottle and shake it violently so i could drop it in the fly trap

do any wizards like tea? specifically loose leaf teas? if so, any specific blends or varieties you like/recommend?

i recently got into gongfu brewing and it's pretty much the only thing i've been thinking about these days. i found this hole in the wall tea shop in the chinatown in my city and purchased a shou pu'erh tea cake that i've been picking away at.

it's literally composted tea and the brew is a thick heavy liquid that tastes like old lake water
it also has sticks and shit in it


Having tea grampa style.
Just put the leaves in a cup. Pour hot water over it, then just drink it without giving a fuck about straining it.

Lucid dreaming: the art of telling your dreams they're your dreams and are thus supposed to do what you want them to.

Anyone else here keeping a dream journal, trying to become lucid or having achieved lucidity?
I've been trying for a few years, but never could muster the discipline to record my dreams and regularly do reality checks.
For anyone else, though, these were the resources I've used:

It comes more naturally to some than others, but yes, anyone can learn.


Is lucid dreaming worth pursuing? It sounds like the ultimate escapism.


Yes, several month old post. Gaining god powers for a few hours every night is worth the comparatively little effort required. The hardest part is maintaining a dream journal.



Ah dreams, the only thing to look forward to in my life. That being said, I think I have lucid dreamed a couple of times but it's hardly regular. My dreams are usually conventional but there is the occasional dream that is so multilayered that it feels like the plot of a film.



Here's a 30 days guide for lucid dreaming, it's in french but easy to traduct. If you do it alright you should have some results at the end. Just don't give up
