weird freaking coincidence, I saw a couple people riding those on the 15th. Never seen them in action. There was no sound and what looked like battery packs, I realized what it was when they blasted clear uphill at like 20mph without pedaling. I'm envious and want one myself.

But it'll never come true.


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



yeah that's what I'm gonna do when we're only months away from a total economic collapse, spend my food money on a toy

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.

speaking english natively should be counted as a disability, it fucks your pronunciation for life unless you're learning dutch or something.




it's not about the amount of languages otherwise you'd speak toki pona


I'm not really learning french, but lately I've been watching documentaries in that language; and as spanish is my native language, I can understand the basic idea of some sentences. I'm too lazy to read a grammar book.

Poker is a hobby right? Here we discuss anything about Poker, personal experience, how to play, which is the best poker service, poker variants, books, videos, trivia etc.

I am very new to this game so I don't have much to share in terms of knowledge or tips. I like the activity itself, I can spend hours at the same table. Am playing on pokerstars, 2$ stakes for now, ran very good the last days making some profit. Also thinking about going for higher stakes. But before that I want to learn more theory. Whould you recommend books or the Internet for learning?


the standard books at this moment seem to be:

Applications of No-Limit Hold'em
No-Limit Hold'em for Advanced Players
and Expert Heads Up No Limit Hold'em (vol. 1&2)

i dropped out from online poker around 2010, when they made it illegal, probably for the best, since it took me a lot of time, and i couldn't break above NL25

at this point, on top of other players colluding, you have to worry about bots which pretty much have the game solved (https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-02156-9)

If anybody has any interest in hosting don't do it immediately, specify a date and time in the future so more people can show up.

Any other wizzies like to go out in nature? Post about it here, whether it be camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, spelunking, or studying birds or mushrooms.



I like hiking but I haven't been in a while. I'd like to camp and hike more, and even sail.
I've been walking my puppy a lot just around our block, and recently found a small trail just off to the side. It was a lot of fun going through even just that small section in the suburbs with him.

Going /out/ and doing outdoor activities are some of the few things keeping me sane.

Could basicly sum up your post as
As usually you don't know what you are talking about. Plain and simple.


between you and me, I'm the only one providing facts, while your whole "argument" is based on insults and aggressively posturing like you know everything in the world because you copied some moves from a steven seagal movie

The self education industry is a $355 Million per day industry and is expected to TRIPLE in the next 5 years! And with the right strategy this could be your opportunity to:

Get in early before it is oversaturated.
Help others go faster while you get paid
Fix a broken system
Make an impact on the world
Get paid for a skill, hobby, passion or expertise you already have (or get paid from someone else’s)

And Tony Robbins, Russell Brunson and Dean Graziosi are finally going to show YOU how to take advantage of it…

(Now if you don’t already know who these 3 guys are then you’ll want to listen up!! They’ve impacted millions of lives and have generated billions of dollars)

Look, if you’ve ever thought about (or even if you never thought about) getting paid for something you know (like a passion or a skill)… or even getting paid from what others know, then you have to attend.

This is one of the fastest growing industries online and in all areas of the world.

And for the first time ever they’re doing a webclass training on how to extract your wisdom (or somebody else’s) and get other people to pay you for it!

You can save your spot here (and when you do register, you’re immediately going to get a brand new, never before seen training from Tony and Dean. No one else will ever get a chance to see this rare training except for us).

Lets have a thread discussing business, corporations , companies and all aspects around them. Including news, mergers, rumors, history and legal cases.

I found the whole saga of movie pass interesting, although its largely old news now.

>Reason TV
>Reason foundation
>Funded by Koch brothers
Man I love shills who are funded by people who are born rich talk me the bloody peasant about the wonderous aspects of capitalism.

That being said I love Koch brothers on their own, they don't buy into the just world theory or working hard to get rich etc bullshit. One of the brothers was jokingly telling how he got rich
>I worked and saved bits of my money, then my father died and left me a billion dollars.


If you don't like what I said just hide it and don't respond. I mean It was more of a sidethought. Which occured to me.
I don't like people who are beyond have it better to lecture me on life. Yeah maybe this is okay. Pro business vidya should be here just as anti business. I just find people born billionaires lecturing me about wonders of capitalism funny.
I can't take such videos seriously. Sometimes I feel I can't take a lot of people seriously. Americans for example more or less got the generous side of capitalism, due to the sheer fact of them being the victors of ww2 and were relatively untouched by the death and distrationg. When you have enormous wealth and a huge advantage it is easy to love/defend capitalism. Compared to say a 3rd worlder like me. Whose father had a farmer but now has to work for factories for a minimum wage.
Not that I'm a staunch commie or anything. But I laugh at some amerifat who tells me I should be gratefull and how I live better than before. "Let me tell you about your country" taken to an extreme. On the opposing side I'm sure it was easy to defend communism as a member of nomenklatur in soviet union. Compare to say some polak factory worker.

So yeah I can't take that video seriously just as I can't take a video from some old fart who was the political elite in ussr talking how peole had it better under communism.

Not that this was my bloody point, my big point was the fact that Koch brothers were not self made. At all, fucking born rich cunts lecturing about "capitalism" what a fucking joke.

>inb4 blogs are for succubi

Some will frown on this, but I've been thinking of just starting a blog instead of dumping my usual blog style posts here on wizchan. Maybe making a blog and then curating it could be a new little hobby for me to do. Are blogs hard to set-up? I'm really not sure how much content I could generate, or things I could say, at least outside of just talking about myself. I make a fair amount of blog posts on wizchan each year, but it's usually from back and forth talk with other wizards, with them asking me questions and such about my life. I'd consider myself a depressive and a hermit, so most of my most posts would basically be centered around my existence as such. Would I eventually just get some people trolling me at some point for that? Do other wizards have blogs? Are they just empty, or did you eventually get a couple people who read what you write? To be honest, I'm most worried about the privacy aspect. All my posts would also be visible, unlike an imageboard, which would be a bit oppressive as well. I've had a couple wizards here and there over the years recommend to me, in a good way, that I should start a blog. I don't know. Maybe it'd help me further develop my writing, or something. Or maybe I'd attract a couple individuals who enjoy reading what I have to say and are people I could maybe become online friends with. I've never had any online friends, so that would be just as good an outcome as I could hope for really. Even if those 2 things don't happen and it's just a dead corner that no ever knows about or finds, it'd probably still be nice to keep a blog, if only for myself. The only blog I ever really followed or knew about was the now defunct "Say No To Life" blog, by the pseudo-anonymous user known as Karl. In his case, he mostly just went on about pessimism/efilism/antinatalism, or just the general ways the world is insane, but was mostly reticent when talking about himself. In my case I think I'd be the opposite. I'd mostly just talk about myself and maybe occasionally segue into stuff like that. I guess someone could say both approaches are bad, but I did enjoy reading Karl's blog before he just deleted all of it one day. Knowing I can just delete and nuke everything is kind of nice though.


I know about a couple of blogs that never cease to amaze me. I'm not giving the links because there's always kiwi trash lurking here but those guys are pretty amazing, not so much the content itself but how they managed to continue to write in it for over 15 years and with virtually no feedback ever. There's this guy who released a fairly massive rpgmaker game over 10 years ago, got pretty much no attention (last time I checked it has like 70 downloads in a decade) and keeps posting about this upcoming project that never seems to complete. It feels like he's just piling up a bunch of loose ideas and concepts, like a broken machine or something. He never gets comments in any of his posts but he keeps doing it for year after year. It reached a point where he created the face of desolation with that blog, like some last guy on earth writing notes to nobody. And the fact he's posting fairly cute sprites sometimes gives a very interesting feeling to it. So yeah, I think blogging can be interesting.


Blogging isn't hard for free hosting version, only need valid email.
I tried using wordpress october last year to write anime review and other stuff I'm into.
But it didnt last long, only a few months, I already burnout and cant be fucked anymore.

Nonethless I think blogging will provide nice reflection to your future- self how your state of mind when you wrote posts.
As brain memory cant be relied upon too much.

Just try it anon


Do it, wiz!

Very interesting.


I had the same idea a few months ago and was a little excited. Thought i would set up a homepage while i was at it, so all my energy went into doing that, and since i was a complete beginner i just wanted a simple solution, so i picked Wix. I spent all day doing some cool backgrounds in photoshop and thats the end of it…

I do write with pen and paper, since that still feels real and its another thing away from the computer. But guess i wanted something more structure to 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:

40 posts and 10 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


here is a method i have decent success with. sleep for between 4.5-6 hours (set an alarm), then get out of bed, get completely awake for about half an hour, and then go back to bed to fall asleep. while you're falling asleep, try to keep your awareness. it gives me a lucid dream a good percentage of the time.


>Why is meditation so low
Meditation can be very helpful, but the other two things are practically mandatory.

>until I can overcome this reflex I doubt I can get further, at least with WILDs, since it doesn't even need to include sleep paralysis sensations to make me force myself out of the experience

Again, this is really not that unusual. The inexperienced usually do and up forcing themselves out of lucid dreams. You're not in a worse position than any other beginner, just practice and you'll be fine.

Go through this guide and dig through some of the links


Can anyone lucid dream?


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


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

Nothing personal against twitter platform but I think looking for interesting people is more useful.

As an example, Granolashotgun is an interesting read that doesn't have a twitter account.



What happened to twitter these days it used to be a cesspool for left leaning journalists and politicians to spew shit and spam retarded stuff now everyone seems to embrace ideas from the right like conservatism.


do you think the blue checkmarks disappeared or something?

Damn, did you really have a moto guzzi? Nice, wiz!


Yes it was nice, 70hp 950cc model with Lafranconi Compitezioni pipes, I miss riding it.


Incredible. I am a little jealous.


Any of you guys try Motorcycle Camping?

Seems interesting but I don't have the gear for it atm.


It's one of the main reasons why I want a bike honestly. This looks so comfy and fun.
