DocumentariesI was watching this random documentary about agriculture and it occurred to me that documentaries are really easy things to lose yourself into, so I thought about creating a thread to share and discuss any interesting documentary about anything that might be entertaining.
Cooking ThreadLet's discuss cooking!
A very odd troll hobbyMy 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?
Philosophy ThreadPrevious thread: >>25265
HorrorAny one else have horror stuff as a hobby? Like collecting weird pictures, reading creepy stories, listening to paranormal podcasts and watching horror films? I find myself drawn to it and I think it counts as a hobby if it's something you're invested in. Sort of like a modern folklore.
Weapons ThreadNew thread.
WorldbuildingDo any of you pass the time with worldbuilding? It's been a hobby of mine for quite some time. Pic related is the map of the project I'm working on at the moment. The digital version doesn't look great at the moment, I'm going to work on beautifying it later.
Movie ThreadThe last movie thread has reached the bump limit. Previous thread: >>51494
Making a websiteHow can I start up a website. I know how to get a domain but I heard you need a 'server' (which from what I have researched, is basically hard-drives/a PC tower that your website is connected to) for it to work, in that case where can I buy on or the parts to make one.
Writing ThreadRemember, anything from novels to lyrics are allowed to be posted and discussed.
ParanormalAfter Reading Fingerprints of the Gods and Magicians of the Gods, I wonder if it’s possible the existence of an ancient and lost civilization like those books described. I know a couple of books who give more evidence of that. 2 books written by the Spanish investigator Javier Sierra, called: En busca de la edad de oro and La Ruta Prohibida, if you want to read them. But, the only book I know who gives a serious proof of that is Hamlet’s Mill. That makes me think if the civilization is cyclical and the event that erase a possible civilization could happen again to us. Just think about it.
best AI, collission handlinghi how do you write for programs AI and collission handling that does not break or clip through the entire game the best way possible? it just has to not freeze or fall through floors really… then maybe have decent behaviour as NPCs…maybe additionally lightweight and compact…. 0 error definitely. how do we double check errors glitches or look for bug and possible failire in the code? quality control? patching maybe?
Small things thats gives you some joy in lifeI honestly haven't put any effort in gardening this chili plant, I just placed the seeds in the pot with dirt and this how it turned out a few weeks later. It's pleasuring seeing it growing day by day and im looking forward eating the chilli once its red.
Reading ThreadThis is the new reading thread, wizards. The previous thread can be found here: >>50386
Mathematics thread 2I liked the first math thread, but that hit the bump limit so I'm making another one.
Comfortable PicturesI 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.
Survivalism/PrepperAnybody into SHTF related hobbies? I started with prepper stuff the past year and it was quite helpful to be prepared before normgroids started panicking with the coronavirus. I'm reading a lot on the topic and trying to improve in different skills for when SHTF, if ever. Perhaps this doesn't sounds as a very wizardly hobby but I find survivalist stuff interesting and training different skills and improvisation helps me concentrating and not being devoured by my thoughts. I think it's good for wizards
French LanguageDo any other wizards have an interest in French language, history, and culture?
PodcastsHello Wizzies, what podcasts do you recommend? i enjoy going trekking while listening to some relaxing podcasts to distract me.
Driving, drives, joyrides, carsDoes any of you, Wizards, enjoy a good night drive, roaming around the city and bonding with your automobile?
carnivorous plantsi'm looking forward to get one of those mainly for practical purpose (killing insects) but before i'd like to know if they're reliable as such or if it's just a myth. i heard the drosera species was the one that needed the less care and thus was perfect for beginners.
TV Television showsThis thread will be for discussing all television shows, series and miniseries
tea threaddo any wizards like tea? specifically loose leaf teas? if so, any specific blends or varieties you like/recommend?
Dreams and LucidityLucid dreaming: the art of telling your dreams they're your dreams and are thus supposed to do what you want them to.
Tabletop Rpg ThreadHas anyone read 5e's fucking Ravenloft?
Gardening ThreadThis 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.
Cooking with depressionI keep eating ready meals which are starting to taste stale and I can't imagine the lack of nutrients and fresh ingredients being beneficial for my health. Also it's expensive.
Shortwave RadioDon't know if we've ever had thread even though it seems like a very wizardly hobby. I bought a really cheap tecsun but i could only get a couple channels, two spanish (cuban?) ones and some mainstream new channels. Not sure if spending more money would help or if I should try a different area. I've been told the hobby is completly dead but looking on reddit and forums it looks like there's still some activity
Economics ThreadPost anything related to economics here
Consumption free hobbiesWhat 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.
cosmology+physicsIm studying the depths of/the forbidden science:cyclical cosmology,determinism,biological history(medea theory,bacterial humanity)
buying an armor to train inI 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.
Interesting countries to visitAs the several traveling threads prove, there are plenty of wizards who are curious about the world. Here, we talk about our traveling wishes and interests in a more abstract and general sense. What countries have you visited? What were your experiences? What countries are you curious about visiting and why? Any particular place you'd avoid like the plague? It doesn't matter if your traveling ideas are realistic or not, just share what interests you.
Unusual subsets of hobbiesAnyone else who enjoys bizzarre / unusual / personal angles on otherwise turbonormie hobbies?
PhotographyRecently I've been getting into photography. I've found that after doing so, I perceive moments in different ways. Things simultaneously seem more transient, yet more permanent. It's a sensation that's difficult to describe, except to say that I am more 'aware' of the moments around me. For obvious reasons I have avoided urban areas, but in terms of landscapes and natural shots, it is quite peaceful.
Wizards' Dream LogI'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.
conspiracy theories/extremely abnormal philosophiesI now consider researching conspiracy theories to be a hobby of mine. Of course, as a hikki, this information is of literally no use to me whatsoever, and I do not have the charisma to "educate" others. It is simply a pastime.
Miscellaneous Creative Output Crawl Thread Mk. I>What
Painting / artCan we have a thread to share, analyze and discuss paintings?
PC BuildingBeen 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?

Comfy films with little dialogueJust watched this film and thoroughly enjoyed it.
farming & agricultureBeen getting tired of depending on corporate America providing for me, I want to get into farming and gardening, saving my money and resources to eventually build a self sufficient farm so I can fully sequester myself from modern culture.
History ThreadLets talk history.
AinulindalëI'm making a big compilation of calming fantasy music and art; it's multi-part and arranged by the gods of the Silmarillion and their different elements and moods. The complete playlist will be 30+ hours long
Is speed-reading a meme?Have any wizzies mastered this art or it this simply a normtrend in order to sell books? (ironically)
Educational Youtube videosI recently picked up this hobby of watching pop education videos on youtube. History, science, technology, futurology, philosophy etc. It really passes the time. And a quick 10 minute tidbit is very relaxing.
STEM Science Technology MathSTEM Science Technology Engineering Math topics thread
READING ThreadI didn't notice the last one is on auto-sage.
Computer architecture and circuit designI'm certain there isn't a thread about this, so I'm going to make one myself.
Philosophy Thread: 2nd TreatiseDespite our Wizard Unity, Wizchan is far from a hugbox. And maybe on a topic like philosophy some of that rhetorical, logical, dialectical debating skill can be put to good use. Instead of just discussing philosophy, lets actually do philosophy. This is the modern socratic dialogue.
Digital Privacy ThreadThread dedicated to digital and internet privacy talk.
Introverted LanguagesFor the longest time, I have been on again/off again been trying to learn French, and only realize how terrible I am at it and how little I've come. I have been able to learn a language before (Spanish), but there I had a lot of direct help from my grandmother whom I could speak with.
