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.
any other history nerds here,or just HEMA fans?
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.

The Last Duel. Don't waste your time, just imagine a shameless copy of Rashomon but 'fixed' by the usual suspects to conform with the requirements of the ruling ideology.
As I watched it I got a creeping feeling that this must have been written by a w*man… a w*man of a very particular race characterized by huge hooked noses.
I regret to inform you that I was correct.
Here's a synopsis for you: men bad, stupid, violent and rapists. The Church bad and rapists. The indigenous European royalty and aristocracy bad and bumbling idiots, probably rapists too.
W*myn smart, funny, brave and stunning. Men can only succeed or do the right thing when controlled by w*myn. W*myn should rule the world but men use violence and rape to hold them back. Believe all w*myn. #MeToo.
Europeanism very very bad and you should be ashamed of being an oppressor, goy.
Fight choreography is predictably trash. Brief battle scenes are depicted as usual: two loose mobs run into each other, the lead actors proceed to flail their props at armored extras who are reduced to blood-spraying corpses with a single blow. The final duel is slightly better in terms of treating armor as more than plastic props, otherwise it's mostly a display of useless chopping moves. Hollywood-y cling clang bullshit in glorious motion blur shaky cam. A staggering 10 second segment of the fight has both characters half-swording and not being retarded. Striking with pommels and crossguards is shown twice. The final part of the duel features rondel daggers which rarely appear in movies.
Running time 133 minutes, perfect for masochists. Thank you ZOG for taking a Japanese classic and making it unbearable in every possible way, very cool.

I used to love children of men (2006) for its aesthetics and cinematography but after becoming more of an antinatalist I kind of hate it now since it aims to beat the viewer over the head about how human population decline ultimately leading to extinction of the species is some sort of "bad" thing. I just view it as moralistic breeder natalist propaganda now. Just look at one of the posters for this flick:
>no children. No future. No hope
My response is "so what? who cares?" How is any of that a bad thing? Pure human arrogance and self-righteousness to fear a world where their kind may not be around anymore.

As good as the expensive vodka you just need to know how to drink it and you will get the cheap stuff after all it is all made from the same stuff with different water added and even the real distilled vodka is just not worth paying extra for.

Mostly just beer because spirits are too expensive where I live. Wine is also as economical as beer but I don't like that.

I drink domestic cheap shit, like natural ice and budweiser just like you, but I really like Hams but I never buy that it's too far away to the store to buy it. My go to is Natty Daddy malt liquor. Occasionally I enjoy a bottle of wine at about the $10 price point. Chardonnay is my favorite, wet chardonnay is really good. I do enjoy a good drunken sloppy afternoon… but I got these social workers that come over and you can't be drunk when they're here hardly. They start to ask questions and insist that the 'medicine isn't working properly'. I suspect that's just my third world shithole though, cheers with bud as well

there's an import store here in USA called AJ's Fine Foods.
they sell a Polish Porter beer called Zywiec for $3. it has 9% alc content and tastes like coffee.

two of them will get me as drunk as possible.

but, it's rare i do this because these very dark beers are much harder on your body and it made me develop gout.

i'll usually do bud light 30 pack if i'm not ready for the hard dark stuff, as bud light is much easier to process and never flares my gout.

Been wageslaving for a year and I managed to build my first half decent PC with some of the money I saved up. Any other anons enjoy this?

I used:
Ryzen 5 2600, ASUS ROG x470 mini itx, 16gb of RAM, and an rx590. Hopefully should last me 4 or 5 years since I plan to go NEET for awhile again soon.

Where do you guys get hard drives for cheap? I've been looking at the used market, but people want new prices for used drives. I remember someone posting a link to some refurbished HGST 4TB drives for like $50 5-6 years ago, but I didn't have any money then. I did manage to find a pc at a thrift store with a 2TB drive for $12, which was pretty cool, though.

on ebay, ive picked up a few hard drives that were incorrectly listed as 1tb but had pictures of 10tb drives, and they actually ended up being 10tb. also some refurbished hard drives from western digital's ebay store, i bought a few 6tb drives but they all came as 9tb drives which meant they were bought for like $8/TB which is actually great. those are purely a result of the seller making some kind of mistake but set up alerts and just watch for stuff you can get lucky as well, people often list things way below the going price when getting rid of things

This is exactly why I didn't build a desktop and instead just bought a laptop. If they change the socket is your computer really upgradeable? You have to buy a whole new computer and just recycle your old parts. It's not even that much cheaper than just buying a new laptop and selling your old one. Heck it may even be more expensive.

Emotionally arrested at an elementary school age. After all, unless retarded, most people only found stuff like muscle men cool in a non-gay way back when children. It's also why there's so much vitriol towards someone having a sexuality at all, not having sex but a sexuality to begin with. 'They're' like 8 year olds with a higher IQ. Literal he man succubus haters club anti-libidos here that get angry if you admit to fapping (to 3d) as anime is for pedos after all they can keep fapping safe from police to anime as 8 year olds. I'm not baiting, this is just how I ended up profiling people after they showed their personality to me here too many times.

Also autists have fixations, that's another one, and they won't realize it's very bad acting either way, emotional arrestment nor autism route will likely notice bad acting.

There's more than one type of wizard in other words. You and I are probably not autistic nor emotionally arrested.

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).

The point is that your everyday reality is the same too. Your sober model of reality is just a model altered by neurochemicals too. It's like if you were to visit two different planets with different cultures and lifestyles: afterwards you don't claim that the place you visited from the 'correct culture', but it showed you that neither culture is correct. A fish likely doesn't realise it is wet unless you pull it out of the water for a while

It feels like there is something wrong with the way I process hallucinogens in general. It’s almost always a negative experience.
I took a 50 gram dose of truffles. Zero visuals aside from the slightest sense of wall breathing and waving my hands seeming to have a longer trail-blur. I became profoundly upset at how small, spidery and succubus-like my hands were. I then spent at least 6 hours believing death did not end suffering and eternal, unescapable reincarnation into more suffering was real, and there was no way to ever be at peace or end. I talked with another person and thought that there were only two eternal, omnipotent consciousnesses in existence (Me and You), and that all of creation was a game they were playing to try to bring themselves together, and that if they ever did come together (no idea what this means) everything would cease to exist, but that this would not ever happen and they would forever suffer alone. It was possibly the worst psychological experience of my life. The idea of eternal reincarnation that I had never entertained before now scares me as much as or more than death.
Another time I took less truffles, again no visuals, but saw everything as existentially futile and tried to kill myself by holding my breath.
The problem is, both times I was then somehow less depressed and more conscientious for weeks/months afterwards, so I keep taking them. Not truffles since they seem to be the worst. I started taking 0.5g of mushrooms every two weeks so that I don’t have to trip, but still get the aftereffects. I’m increasing the dose a bit each time, but at whatever threshold it turns into a nightmare I won’t go up to again.
I fucking HATE psychedelics. I take them regularly. Idk.

I've tried growing a couple different times. First time I did what is called the Uncle Ben's Tek where you use rice in bags from the grocery store and innoculate them with spores and seal them with micropore tape. Once the bags colonize, you break them up into tubberware bins and treat them like any other grow. Keep them under light, keep the moisture good, etc etc.
People on Reddit post amazing results, and mine looked really promising until it dried out and began to mold. I believe it got taken over by trich, a common mold that contaminates grows.
So that was a bust. I ended up burying it all in my yard next to a stump, and lo-and-behold, once in a while a mushroom will pop up! I ate one and it was a-okay. Pic related, look at that fine little man.

I tried another time. This time I used the more well known brown rice Tek, and I had more results from that one. I had some fruits, but they were skinny and didn't look healthy. I harvested them when I thought things were going south, and I actually still have them dried out in a bag. That batch also got taken out by trich.

What's funny is I have no problem eating the ones that grew outside, but the ones I grew in my own closet get the side-eye and I will not eat them.

Since these two experiences, I've taken to simply buying them and paying someone else for their labor. It's worth it to me.

How to train your dragon

Well animated movie, with an excellent story that has relatable and believable characters that you care about, cool quirky dragons, amazing action scenes, and thrilling music. The theme of strained father and son relationship because of the wimpy son who failed to meet the expectations of his manly alpha father, the leader of his viking tribe, and the ostracism brought on by this wasn't my cup of tea, but it was well done and you could feel for the kid.

It also has this cutie who is the male protagonist's love interest that I fell in love with.

Fixies and single gears are pretty fun in their own way. Especially if you like to swap components out a lot.
Never have I tried more handle bar types then the time I had a single gear for a year.
My time with a fixed gear was a little scary, but that's because there were hills and the guy I got it from didn't have breaks on the thing. Installed some later but that first month was stressful.
Also wore though tires really fast because doing skids and slides is addictive.
