Anyone here grow mushrooms or take them before?

I remember posting back on /wiz/ about a year ago about my experience with mushrooms and people were really interested. Though that time I bought them off the darknet markets, this time I am growing them. First image is my current grow, second image is not mine but where they will be likely be within 5 days, 3rd image is the innoculated jars.

Essentially what you do is sterilise brown rice flour (BRF) in a small masonry jar by way of pressure cooker. You then take the sterilise jars out, add psilocybin mushroom spores which can be bought online from USA in the clearnet no trouble as you just say they're for microscopy purposes.

Once you colonise the jars with spores you keep them warm and away from sunlight for two weeks. Inside the jars the spores will create mycelium and eventually turn the entire jar into a big fungi mass. You take this out, place it in a terrarium and keep the humidity high and the light low and the mushrooms come out within a week (where I am at the moment).

Anyone go for wood-ear mushrooms?


I know how to make it into a salad


> From a die-hard atomist, scientifically minded, rationalist person after a single mushroom trip I now question everything. The rationalist mind immediately thinks "this guy is a fucking retard" or "his brain got fried lol RIP >believing in hallucinations" but when you experience for yourself the mind-expanding, boundary dissolving entheogens for yourself you understand this is what life is all about.
When people make statements like this, I wonder if they are aware of how the brain works. Our eyes are not 'windows' to the world so to speak, it more accurate to say that our eyes take in input and use that data to generate a 3d model of reality. It follows then that if you were to mess with the reality-gen software, you could make practically anything happen to you. Imagine poking your brain with an electrode and inducing orgasmic visions. Is there any reason to believe psychadelics are any different to that?


It could be good if you managed to get customers on the internet. Real life dealing wit require knowing lots of people and strong charisma to find new people.
And shrooms are hard to sell irl.
I don't know how many buy on the internet but it would probably be worth a try.


>Imagine poking your brain with an electrode and inducing orgasmic visions. Is there any reason to believe psychadelics are any different to that?
im pretty sure psychedelics "free" your mind more than alter it like an electrode would. i think its pretty nutty to think that mushrooms just have ideas like being one with everything encoded in them, its more likely that the people taking them are being "allowed" to realize these ideas. plus what other drugs can somewhat reliably communicate ideas? if psychedelics can make you think about hippie stuff then shouldnt you be able to make someone think about other stuff with a drug?

Every other board has their own /general/ and it might be better to post about little known hobbies here, rather than have a new thread that gets 2 replies.

How about horseback riding?

jesus what kind of bugs can cause that at horse riding speed impacts


Wait is that his blood? I thought he just smashed a really big mosquito full of horse blood.


Yeah it was sitting on the horse and I killed it.
It looked a bit similar to a fly but many times bigger and with stripes.




Yeah maybe

This thread is for discussing your successes and failures with magic(k) as well as occultism and metaphysics.

Power, knowledge, Apotheosis


I always wanted to and just recently started tentatively studying the Changes. Not so much as a system of divination but as an overarching cosmogony of much of chinese thought.
It is not exactly an easy endeavour, not only because of the cryptic nature of the book and symbology, but also because of all the historical cruft that it has accumulated. It is often linked to daoism, but daoism itself has grown way beyond it's initial shape.
For example, the notions of yin and yang, so seemingly central to both systems, has but very minor representation in the original works, in the Zhouyi there is but a couple of lines with explicit mention, the daodejing iirc has none, and Zhuangzi too mentions them only in passing.
Later scholars from many schools took from the yijing, and it can be shown in both confucian and later daoist traditions. Confucius himself is credited the Great Commentary, the notions of the trigrams themselves seem to have been, too, developed well after the Zhouyi was written. They are actually the ones that bridge the rather archaic zhouyi to the whole yingyang system.
The received yijing that chinese know today actually come with a great deal of additional text, also known as the Ten Wings, which are several layers of commentary added over the ages. But the core essence (ie, the Zhouyi) is merely the hexagrams and the comments on the lines.
Interesting is the daoist school that built a system of alchemy and magic on top of the original symbolism of the changes, but also the neoconfucian school which also makes up a big coherent model of the universe based on much the same principles. I don't know very well to what extent these two traditions overlap, and both seem to have influenced traditional chinese medicine as well.
As of right now, besides studying the Zhouyi itself, I've been looking at the Illustrated Canon of Chen Family Taijiquan, where these systems of thought all seem to converge to a certain extent. Indeed, taijiquan is quite recent, considering the lifetime of the changes.
But therein lies the difficulty, for the system expounded in the Chen family canon necessarily draws on many sources and a long tradition, and the exact origins and dates thereof of these ideas is hard to trace, whereas the original texts of both the dao as well as the yijing itself have but a very minimal language. Especially the dPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


succubi shouldn't be allowed to practise the occult, it's either cringe or full on dark magick


what's dark magic?


Doing unethical shit in the name of magick.
Hurting people, stealing body parts from dead people, killing animals, rape, murder, that kind of shit.

>nothing but the contention of a thousand petty interests
Beautifully, put. Although, it is ironic/contradictory to say. I wonder if this writer is aware that his own writing is a petty interest? Or perhaps my reading of his writing interesting me in a petty way? I suspect the contamination of schizophrenia.


I haven't watched all of this walking tour of Montmartre yet, but so far I like it. He even has captions at the bottom pointing out things of interest. I found another video of Monmartre that was more moody and wizardly, in the sense that it was filmed on a cloudy autumn day, but the camera work wasn't great and made me sick.


How do I get over my previous failures?


What do you mean my previous failures?

Mostly it is just a matter of learning from past mistakes and moving on to keep practicing. Mistakes are part of the learning process.

Any wizards play yugioh?

I collect the cards, though I don't really play the game. I'm 26 and still live with my parents as a hikki, so my parents are trying to force me to get a hobby to get me out of the house so I"m thinking of playing the game at my local card shop

i used to remember playing yugioh in original series. but my local community was overrun by ghetto thug spawn. lots of theft and drama. then a local popular playing spot on friday nights was run by an aggresive thug wannabe filipino family. I think one of the co owners gave my address away to some bastard so he can cause drama and come to my house. Fuck so cal yugioh community. Is it still this ghetto?


Hey i know this is reall random but did konami/UDE nerf the value of the original LOB: Exodia? I feel i fucked up by never selling mine


wasnt mai valentine suicidal in the season before last??? also LOL @ the renaming for the characters. Joey is really jonouchi and not even an eye talian. Literally tricking kids into thinking the characters are white


Antoine Griezmann, a french professional footballer who plays as a forward for France NT became a yugioh ambassador this month. His favorite card is the same as mine: Time wizard. He watches the anime, and collects the cards too, and from the video he's watched the Battle City arc.


yes yugioh is awesome, better than the pokemon card game which is fun as well. i play duel links, but i follow the tcg as well.

What are some hobbies that don't involve consuming anything? You purchase a 1 time item and very rarely if ever have to replace it. Learning yo-yo tricks would be a consumptionless hobby in this case. There are obviously thinks like whistling or playing the spoons too. The idea is it has to make as little foot print as possible while being something you can develop and grow at. Drawing wouldn't count because you need paper.

Working on my muscle car


that's my hobby and I have spent roughly 2000-2500 hours practicing the past 2 years. it's fun and endless.


Clouds are cool but is it a hobby?


Posting hobby criticism posts yet again is alright, but is it a hobby?


browsing a meteorology forum every once in a while and it does seem pretty interesting, i guess.

Anyone here use Linux for fun and profit?

I'm currently running debian with dwm as my window manager. I was curious to see what all the hubbub was about when it comes to minimalism and I gotta say I like some things about it. However, I'm still not fully convinced it's the end all be all of desktop computing or anything. There are still plenty of programs I like to use that are considered "bloated" by true minimalists.

Overall I'm more productive on my Linux system than I am on my Windows system. It feels good to know all the keyboard shortcuts in my system and be able to program new ones quickly and easily through config.h, and to be able to launch many programs near instantaneously. And the tiling and workspaces? It's absolutely gorgeous. I love having control of where everything goes without having to much about with window borders. I love having a group of programs open dedicated to performing a certain task, and then being able to instantly switch to another group of programs by just pressing alt+[num].

YEESS! I've never seen somebody also tracking time with ledger. I personally use it to track the time I spend on social media (mostly YouTbe). Per hour I convert the time spent to like 1$ liabilities. Those I have to donate (for example to foss-projects).
If somebody wants to try it:
= /FreeTime:SocialMedia/
(Allocation:Harm)1 ;Value: (1/3600 USD)
= tag("allocation") == "Harm"
Just tag the donation transaction with "allocation: Harm" to pay the liabilities. Track the time in the account FreeTime:SocialMedia:Whatever

How about the telemetry that is actively sending all sorts of data about you to various groups that you cannot turn off?

youtube-dl currently doesn't work downloading age restricted videos from youtube, even with log in and cookies. The way I download such videos for now is by changing this setting in about:config then right clicking the video and saving it. You need an add-on that allows you to right click anywhere (I just have to hold shift and then no site can stop me from right clicking like on any other site). Without changing this option, on youtube the download video option will be greyed out. The option disables something that allows them to load videos in chunks vs altogether. Supposedly you cannot download high quality vids this way though.


i use invidio.us usually it works

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

Found yet another true crime podcast I "like".

Human Monsters.
It isn't for the faint of heart. The first few episodes are about child abuse and it gets into extraordinary levels of detail.

It's one of those kind of shows where by it even existing on several platforms it proves that the censorship is totally bullshit when done or those platforms.
Like they will censor alex jones or joe rogan over wrong think meanwhile this podcast describes a toddler being tortured and raped for years in medical detail for a hour and a half is a-okay.

Anyway it also goes into detail about the investigation, trials, and punishments too. So it isn't just suffering porn or whatever. It's more like someone reading case files without holding anything back and adding in news clips and interviews to give full context.
Once you get over the horror of some of the cases it's actually a little dry in presentation but eventually the guy who does the podcast does start branching out by doing interviews.

Wouldn't recommend if you aren't already into true crime as it doesn't sugarcoat how fucked up humans can be.


as someone struggling with mental illness, I really enjoy the mental illness happy hour. the host actually talks to people via email and gives a fuck. most of his interviews are normie as fuck but some have really interesting back stories. I plan to be on there someday to talk about my journey of autism and MDD/PTSD to neetbucks



I remember seeing that in the listings but something about the descriptions and episode titles made me think it was just more progressive propaganda using the the meaning of psychology as a weapon.

If I am totally wrong I would be willing to actually give it a chance.


well duh paul gilmartin the host is a progressive as alot of podcast hosts are. i just avoid the lgbtbbq/tranny stories but honestly i havent seen much propoganda on most of the episodes.

If you dont have alot of time his "best of episodes" are usually pretty entertaining. heres a good one i listened to recently. this guy was in gangs all his life and did 20 some in solitary:



Carlin is fantastic. One of the few podcasts I have to sit down and concentrate on. Too good to listen to while occupied.

I also enjoy

>Joe Rogan

Not overrated. He can be a bit annoying but he is very down to earth and "real". His deep curiosity, style of questioning and layman perspective make him the perfect guy to talk to interesting people. And he interviews/chats with MANY interesting people. He has 1600+ episdoes, many 3h+ long, and I've found out about many amazing ideas from his podcasts, despite the fact that he is a "meme" for lack of a better term. his podcast is my favorite because of the sheer amount of interesting discussion, guests, unfiltered discussion about edgy topics, and the way the conversations are very natural (nothing like MSM interviews)

>Trash Taste

3 youtube ecelebs talk about life in japan, otaku culture, and talk shit about life. they are normies through and through, but it's nice to listen to a good quality podcast about otaku culture with 3 friends that have excellent chemistry


reviewbrah/reportoftheweek's podcast. very comfy feeling, the guy is a wizard through and through, totally owns it, lives how he wants. lots of varied discussion with mildly interesting perspectives


podcast about people and places that are extreme, such as isolated islands. talks about how they live and what life is like there. nice window to another world


in depth dive into historical revolutions. only listened to the french series, but I loved it

A thread to post about things you've built, altered, summoned, or conjured in to existence - where the process of which isn't covered by an existing thread.


Sometimes wizards will create something and wish to share it, but no thread related to the process exists. They may not wish to create a new thread due to /hob/'s slow nature and tradition of keeping threads alive for as long as possible. Making what he did may also not necessarily be a hobby of his, but he may want feedback from fellow wizards regardless.


If you wish to make a new thread for your creative hobby, then by all means do! But swing by here occasionally to see what other wizards are making too!

i want to make electronics. like for example i press a button and a motor turns for 3 seconds. stuff to handle and process multiple inputs. how do i learn this stuff. i feel like those learning kits are a mega jew ripoff. do i just try to build stuff that other people have built i guess?


I have a furnace that can melt copper, I was thinking about making an aluminum-bronze knife. How would you go about doing this?
