What? Really? Nobody likes Lego here? I thought this was a popular hobby, especially among our kind. For me? Its the Time Twisters.

I can't afford this hobby but from time to time, I like watching youtube videos of expensive and interesting builds. I know it's not the same thing, but it's the closest I'll ever come to an expensive build. I think it's a nice wizardly hobby, but the expense holds many wizards back for good reason. Apparently famous autist Chris Chan is a big lego fan and spent many thousands on lego builds. I don't think the average wizzie has the free money to waste on that type of hobby, that's why I watch videos like this.

I've also been listening to audiobooks while watching these lego builds muted, the good builders don't talk or have music anyway so having sound on the videos is pointless. That way I can get two hobbies done at once, yet also have concentration to finish up some surveys for spending money.

I contemplated on which board to post this and ultimately decided I'll do it on /hob/ this time, as it seems to me that collecting and enjoying pictures of houses, towns, areas, natural scenes etc., is in fact kind of a hobby.

So post pictures that you associate with comfyness. I personally have a thing for forest cabins and quaint little town streets.

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.

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?

Wow that looks clean, very nice. How much did you pay for it? I just checked local listings for pre-LT1 C4's and these things are so expensive compared to a couple years ago, what in the world.
>used to have a blacked out crown vic
Also neat. I have an 08 (non P71, so no dual exhaust and a 2.73 rear end) but it's still a very enjoyable car to drive. Fun enough to powerslide around corners but tame enough to feel safe enough doing it. I did have an 86 CV but I also lost that in a crash, I really do miss it.
Speaking of 80's sports cars, I do have an 87 mustang that is almost close to being 100% complete and driveable. It's really been a lot more of a project than I anticipated, but I don't regret it.

prices have risen like crazy the past year or so, I bought mine for 5500 and could easily sell for 7-8k now.
I had an 08 P71 to be honest I do miss it sometimes, especially the reliability and how roomy it was. not that the corvette has left me stranded but there's a 20 year gap in age. been thinking about buying another p71 for a beater daily and keep the corvette as a weekend driver. right now the corvette is also my daily but I work from home so its not a big deal.
foxbodies are pretty cool too. if you are looking into C4 avoid the 84 models, the 89 models are the best of the early c4 models since it has the original interior, L98 motor and manual transmission was changed from doug nash 4+3 to actual 6 speed transmission. most bugs were also iron out that year.
later models facelift body styling, the LT1 motor, which makes more HP but has issues with optispark and an updated 90s GM interior.

More like enforcement. There's a lot of stupid laws in any country; it's just not enforced eg. rules on haberdashery. Any law that a megacorp bribes..eh.. lobbies for will *definitely* be enforced; this way leads to fascism.

I just use a cheap android tablet for reading e-books and the like. Never had any compatibility issues, and I read a lot and have tested many different file formats.

An Android tablet is far more versatile too than these e-reader devices. I think I spent about $200 on mine around 5 years ago and it still works well (they're probably cheaper nowadays). I got so much use out of it that the faux-leather case is literally falling apart from wear.

They're really useful for traveling anywhere too since they're a compact form of near-limitless entertainment, and you can use it for basic computing tasks like email, online shopping, or internet browsing. They can also be comfy for watching TV in bed.

I'll definitely be buying another one once my current one eventually dies. Also, I would look into refurbished devices instead of buying new.

>go tired of windows shopping

Well, I posted in the thread already but what I'd like to ask is:

I'm sick of lurking around wondering, is there a device with e-ink that is not android that has no restrictions and can read cbz (and has text to audio synthesis) of which is the size of a typical manga and costs a bit under or around 100 usd?

They have weird offbrand Chinese ones that show up then immediately get bought, then show up on another seller, unless on ali, so with how much of an unfortunate bum I am I figured I'd just go ahead and ask someone.

About hacking, I figure would hacking brick it? Won't android's, though recommended, try to control you and also have planned obsolescence in their software design, even hardware design?

I've already used calibre to make all books txt so I can read them on any shabby device and even have my pocketgo v1 reading to me (that's a gp2x sort of thing, for emulation of old consoles really but it has text reading capability and text to audio) randomly (sounds bad really but it's a cool device to me anyway and it can show the text of course though it's a bit small for even normal reading I'd figure) but honestly manga I've never had a convenient small device for as tablets look bad when cheap on their sides in portrait mode.

Well, my overall point is that I know nothing about the weird offbrand ones if they often have no actual title but have a familiar hardware design. Do they have stores? They claim to have real e-ink and can read cbz, some claim it, but I just don't know.

The two types I keep staring at are this one and preferably this one as they come up a lot and that second ones seems to claim cbz and the other generally does not claim to be able to do it. I take it they are both bad but still. I assume they are both terrible in some way? These two designs that have no specific title nor name?

Also I don't like the idea of a touch screen.

I'm thinking that the pocketbook might be my best option and lurked enough to see someone claim most can do cbz? I'm reading and pondering ereaders_101, the wiki link, right now. It mentions not cbz in it though is nice to see.

I have always loved the beautiful and relaxing hobby and tradition of writing letters to express a message. Its forms may be varied but the essence is the same. Undoubtedly something very human.

What do you think? And, do you also like to write letters or any subject related to writing?

A cordial regards.

I like old typewriters. There's something about objects that have "This express purpose and this purpose only" that feels incredibly engaging and beautiful. I usually find myself writing what others would consider "good blog posts" whenever I've had the chance to sit down at a typewriter.

I remember finding this stationary drawer of my grandfather's. It was all immaculately organized. He had three different sets of pens depending on which kind of print he would use (print, cursive, or gothic), and he would carefully choose his paper and envelopes with extreme care. I have one letter that he sent me when I was a child (<10, probably <5), and his vocabulary was…honestly it wasn't until I finished college that I could even understand his letter.

I've found myself appreciating when people find ways to put in a million tiny details into what is usually considered the most mundane tasks now.

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.
