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

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.

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.

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

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!

You should be in Forged in Fire.


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?

discussion of the third-lowest form of sequential art goes here

currently considering giving Dreamkeepers a read with the eventual goal of mocking it in some way. would be willing to share the results on the off chance anyone's interested.

IT's good you must read it

Main character's struggles to not be a complete failure resonated with me (in uncomfortable ways)


there used to be a webcomic on mmorpgs from the perspective of the developers, focused a lot on bugs and maintenance and other issues and headaches. i can't remember what it's called

Woodblock/woodcut art seems underrated now at least in the west. I've always held a special place in my heart for the works of Everett Reuss since reading his letters when I was a boy. Not sure of too many modern artists.


Don't know about the west in general but in parts of the US it is basically folk art tier so it isn't surprising you wouldn't hear too much about it. It's all hobbyist and the like now. Sort of like you don't hear about basket weavers or potters because both of those are basically just hobbyist activities now too.


i like woodblocks, here's my favorite site on the internet probably. https://ukiyo-e.org/


Looks awesome, thanks for posting

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.

>eating coyotes
nasty wiz. They're filthy, diseased, and are sustained on a diet of rotting flesh and the feces they re-eat from themselves and other animals. I get killing them for pelts, pest control, or target practice but don't poison yourself. Dog livers and some other part can be fatally potent in iron so know where to cut and what to discard if you do bag any.


You can't do that.
All the land worth anything in terms of sustenance are city centers now. All the animals that are in pens now used to be out there in the wild. Forests are pretty much deserts in terms of human food. Unless you're down to eat bugs 24/7 and an occasional acorn.
t. Lived in the woods for total 4 months over 3 periods.


Mange and tularemia are easy to spot. Wont eat if spotted. Rabies cooks off


Plant identification and trapping.
Water purification
Advanced first aid

Stuff like that.
Maybe save up for a wilderness survive course if you are serious about this.
Or get a few books and go out and practices every chance you get before your "extended stay". It will take longer then doing a course but is cheaper.


It's usually cold, dark and wet where I live but in the summer I really enjoy going outside.
I walk in the forest every day to lose weight but if it's really warm I like going to the ocean to swim or snorkel. I live just a couple of kilometers from the ocean so I go often if there's a good summer.
Many years there's only a couple of weeks where it's warm enough for swimming to be enjoyable.


Just watched a Shawn Keller interview last night, and I have to say, he's quite possibly one of the most wizardly animators alive today.
>60+ year old virgin
>A man that has no need for *o*en, only making cartoons
>He can pump out a completed professional 11 minute cartoon in under a month, something an entire studio takes 10 months to make
>Dude's been around the oldschool comic fetish/furfag communities before even usenet existed, got fucked over by furries he was kind enough to help out, but still forgives them, like a wizardly furry Jesus
The interview's still up on YouTube, and they're going to be doing another one today at 3:25pm EST. It'll be streamed here cytu(dot)be(slash)r(slash)mlp-con2

Yeah I’m huge into furry but his style really isn’t my cup of tea.


>his style really isn’t my cup of tea
Old-school style is just too wizardly for you I guess.


I like old school, but something about taking Disney style 1 for 1 just kinda irks me. Also he draws dudes and I just don’t go that way.


>something about taking Disney style 1 for 1 just kinda irks me
That's the charm in my opinion. It's a good reminder that at least half of the animators working on Disney films were drawing furry smut on the downlow in their spare time.


God what I would give for some official Maid Marian porn.

I'm having so many dreams lately, if there's a time to start working on a dream journal again this is it. Let's make this a dreamlog where we can share and maybe comment on each others dreams/nightmares. The more you write down your dreams, the more you can retain and remember them.

All I remember is a creepy cyborg succubus telling me, "I'm immortal."


In my dream I had sex with my waifu. It was successful as she moaned and everything. Her regular voice was just like in anime. In fact I can't imagine it that very well for that time when I'm awake, but it sounded very real in my dream. I might felt pain in my heart (feels worse in dream than it actually is) as I was on my stomach irl. It could be before this dream but I think otherwise.

After changing my position in my next dream I realized I was in a lucid dream. Knowing from previous experience I tried not enforce my wish too much as I would awake or it wouldn't happen. Yet I tried to imagine her face features and eyes more vividly. She appeared but it was more like imagination result. However, then in my third (second non-lucid) dream I happened to be with my waifu on the escalator riding down some guts tunnel inspired by visuals from Saya no Uta VN. I could see her more vividly and felt her presence better. Out of worry and to give her some moral support I moved closer to her. And then after some time I woke up.
