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 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

This year most of my plants (zucchinis, strawberries, cucumbers) got messed up with the heat waves, tomatoes are really the only thing I have left. I don't want summer to end, going back to eating store vegetables and fruit is soul crushing. Not much money so no fancy organic food.

Do you garden? How long? What plants?
How do you deal with having to go back to tasteless store vegetables during winter?


Not really anon. But you should try finding more people to talk about it on the sub.

One too many wheels.


>Bumping a dead thread just to be a silly contrarian


I think of buying an electric bike (or scooter) after selling my shit car. Makes no sense to have a car in this stupid city and whenever i drive a bike i don't really feel like i'm sharing the road and communicate 24/7 with angry normalfags even if i'm just as careful. I rediscovered cycling only recently due to a job and i have nothing against it, it's practical and stress free at the same time but i can't say the same thing about cars.


What’s wrong with making a silly bump?

I dream to have a motor like this. But they are very expensive in my country


I'd prefer to get a few-thousand dollar motorcycle instead of a car, but I live in an area with harsh snow and salt all over the roads for most of the year and I can't imagine how inconvenient (and expensive) it would be to own and maintain a motorcycle in these conditions.

Sometimes I think about getting a motorcycle and just driving around the country wherever I want to go. Maybe I'd drive to another country entirely. I've never had that sort of freedom or independence to go wherever I want and I want to experience it.

I went to a license course before I ever touched a motorcycle and bombed hard. Undeterred I bought one last year, learned to ride in my neighborhood, took the course again, got licensed and I've had it more than a year now. Here is what I learned so far.

1. It's very inconvenient.
2. The more I ride it the less confident I am.
3. I have nowhere that i want to go and riding around seems pointless.
4. You have much less control than you think you do.
5. It's not as liesurely as I had hoped
6. Made me realize how ugly it is where i live.

I'm looking to sell it now. Even if I lose money on the deal at least now I have that experience and can say been there done that. More to the point though, I don't have the confidence I had when I started. In fact every time I got on it I lost a little more. What worries me is that I'm going to get on it one day on a whim after not riding for literally months and that will lead to me crashing. At the end of the day it's just not for me.

It's a Honda CB500F for those interested.


>1. It's very inconvenient.
How so? I imagine it couldn't be any more inconvenient than a car unless you mean a lack of space to carry things.
>2. The more I ride it the less confident I am.
A simple case of the Dunning-Kruger effect.
>4. You have much less control than you think you do.
Yeah, well, you bombed a learner's course so would anyone trust your advice?


>How so?
Weather and having to leather up are two things that come to mind.

Im studying the depths of/the forbidden science:cyclical cosmology,determinism,biological history(medea theory,bacterial humanity)
My goal is to build a comprehensive world-view able to stand its own against a religion creed.
The main issues to adress are;
>origin,role of,and fate of,conciousness
>origin and end of the universe/s
>Life:origins and porpouse

so far im going down the quantum immortality/kardashev scale futurism rabbit hole,im solidly convinced of cyclical universe. I just dont know if immortality would be bolztmannian,simulated,quantum or poincare-recurrent.


When you go outside the realm of empirical evidence and logic your worldview begins to just rely on your emotions basically. So you can pick whatever you like. Or whatever you dislike, if you're feeling masochistic.


i DEFEND that im within the real of empirical evidence and logic.

got any others interesting theories?
+ since you said you are deep in the rabbit hole, mind if i asked you about your opinions on ,life,consciousness,life after death?

Anyone else who enjoys bizzarre / unusual / personal angles on otherwise turbonormie hobbies?

In the past few years I've taken to cultivating mandrakes. Have enough to poison a small nighborhood if I wanted, but I mostly enjoy their flowers and the minimal care they require, They're basically weeds, like me.


I only cannot enjoy heavily photo shopped photos, with filters all over them. I don't get the appeal for that shit, like normalniggers do.


Use the catalog.



This site isn't big, fast, or active enough where getting this granular is even remotely justified or needed when such similar threads already exists.

**And to the mod, telling someone to use the god damn catalog isn't against the fucking rules.
Voicing objection to a thread for reasons that don't violate the rules and thus don't justify being reported is also not a motherfucking violation of the fucking rules.
And mo pointing out that a post doesn't violate the rules isn't a violation of the god damn rules.**

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).

Maybe you're just just slow and are better off overdosing on heroin.


It's not for everyone. Any idiot can hold a paintbrush and a triggered faggot will quit instead of learning to paint.


Why would some fag that buys drugs from niggers feel the same accomplishment as the man who grew something?

You literally ate something from a niggers ass and are mad at the farmer who didnt.


fooled by your own delusions, seeking to brag about even something anybody can do. drug snobs like yourselves and joe rogan turn away non-pretentious people from ever trying them because they're worried they'll fry their brain and start sounding like you. you faggots aren't painters or farmers. stop kidding yourselves.


Anyone go for wood-ear mushrooms?

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.

Recently I had some money to spend, so I bought a beginner/small telescope to "stargaze" with. It's quite interesting to do, albeit I could see someone bore of it.

So far, I managed to see some of our planets and some sparkling stars with it. I also used it to to check out the nearby mountains and the city. It's quite a sight to see with one's own eyes (albeit very small) planets like Jupiter or Saturn. There's just something that I like about being outside alone in relative dark, and getting this hobby proved to also give that tendency a kind of boost.
