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.
Wargamesany wizzies play wargames? if you want, we can discuss it in this thread. since /hob/ generally is very slow any sort of historical, napoleonic, or sci-fi game is welcome.
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.
Cooking ThreadLet's discuss cooking!
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.
Reading ThreadA thread for wizards to discuss books.
Google Street View tour of the WorldLets go on a Wizardly tour of the world, using Google Street View. It is truly amazing. Sure there were always National Geographic pictures and stuff. But its not the same as being able to walk around streets at your own direction. This is like something out of science fiction, we take for granted. This is as good as actually being there. And perfect for Wizards who don't actually want the inconvenience of leaving their homes.
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.
tea threaddo any wizards like tea? specifically loose leaf teas? if so, any specific blends or varieties you like/recommend?
History ThreadLets talk history.
2019 Media, Films, TV debutsLooking forward to any new films and TV shows in 2019?
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.
Masked Camwhoring for Elderly Faggots?I have no pride and I want money, but I want to hide it as "gifts" so that my bux are not decreased. Is camwhoring the solution? I've heard this is what welfare succubi do for supplemental income. Like with any job, we will have to work harder to make money from it (smaller market of thirsty elderfags to compete for) but it should still be possible, right?
magic the gatheringAny wizards here play or played magic the gathering?
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.
Painting / artCan we have a thread to share, analyze and discuss paintings?
Linguistics ThreadHere, we discuss linguistics, be it historical linguistics, semantics, phonetics, or anything of the sort. I've been interested in linguistics for as long as I can remember. I especially am fond of historical linguistics, and love reading about it. I am currently learning Latin. So, what does Wizchan think of linguistics?
PodcastsHello Wizzies, what podcasts do you recommend? i enjoy going trekking while listening to some relaxing podcasts to distract me.
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.
French LanguageDo any other wizards have an interest in French language, history, and culture?
Digital Privacy ThreadThread dedicated to digital and internet privacy talk.
Tabletop Rpg ThreadHas anyone read 5e's fucking Ravenloft?
Superheroes and CapeshitThere couldn't be a more appropriate day to start this thread, seeing as its the anniversary of the 1st ever publication of Superman in Action Comics. The Capeshit that started it all.
/mg/ - Minimalism GeneralFor discussing software and hardware minimalism.
True Crime and Real MysteriesFor those with a interest in the darker side of humanity this thread is for you.
KombuchaDo any of you brew kombucha?
Old Tech RestorationI guess I might as well make a thread about restoring stuff, albeit I'm doing this for a rather self-serving reason.
EthnographyGeneral ethnographic talk. I'll start with why this has interested me.
Psychology Thread INTJ Master RaceMost therapists are delusional normans, too trapped in their own complexes to help us. I google different forms of therapy and try them on myself. Most don't work, but they're fun.
Personal MythologiesDo you have one? We'll define it pretty loosely, so something like an intricate world created for a story would count as long as there is more to the world than what happens in the storyline. Bonus points if you believe your mythology to be actually true.
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.
Dedicated FTP server threadSince torrents are in decline and Google has tweaked the hell out of its search algorithm to weed out pirated shit from search results we're still left with few options for getting things for free. This thread will serve as a place to willingly share FTP servers that are still active and have a decent amount of content on them.
Anyone read the Game of Thrones books?Or, A Song of Ice and Fire, as it is properly known.
Solo Traveling>implying any other kind of traveling would be encouraged here.
Learning englishHello wizzies, i want to improve my english. I understand spoken english and some basic grammar but my pronunciation is not good, what should i do to improve it? Already tried languages exchanges around here but being an asocial wiz its pretty hard to find people to teach you for free
Collaborative writing threadLet's try our hand at this. I know there are a lot of wizards here filled with imagination and creative impulses but it can be quite hard to start a thing on your own, to carry all the process by yourself. Having no direction or initial spark to work with can be a huge impediment as most of us here know. This thread is an attempt to fix that, giving you an initial buildup to start with. There will be a few rules in order to keep things from getting too wild and out of hand but other than that you can do whatever your heart desires. I'm planning this thread to have several projects, the first one will be a test run to see what works and what doesn't. It's actually quite simple. I'll write down the beginning of a story. Some characters, some events, a place where things are going to happen. From that you can pick whatever you want and add to it. We'll try to write a story together here, plain and simple.
Drinking my feels awayDrinking is a hobby right.
Writing ThreadRemember, anything from novels to lyrics are allowed to be posted and discussed.
Mathematics thread 2I liked the first math thread, but that hit the bump limit so I'm making another one.
MoviesMovies you watched, plan to watch, recommend, don't recommend, etc. Remember to use spoilers when applicable. Thank you.
Trailers and Scenes that standalone for Wizos with short attention spansI know there are already a bunch of movie, tv, cartoon threads. But this thread serves a specific purpose of entertaining ADHD Wizos with clips and trailers that can be enjoyed on their own without investing the time.
Can't Find a HobbyIt's impossible sticking to a hobby for me, and I wonder if it's the same for you as well. I'm looking for a hobby that I could do everyday or several times a week, and all those fucking hobbies requires money sadly.
Driving, drives, joyrides, carsDoes any of you, Wizards, enjoy a good night drive, roaming around the city and bonding with your automobile?
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?
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.
False PseudoethymologiesI like written words because they rarely attack me physically nor can they hurt me mentally when I close my eyes.
Fantasy,Science fiction and Horror LiteratureSince a buch of crack heads (or the national guard) stole the internet wires of my street, the only thing i do is read. Im reading the postman of david brin. Is not bad, is actually good. But some part of the "dar age feminins" is just cringeful
Single Player Tabletop RPGsAfter reaching my limit with video-games weeks ago I’ve been kind of floating around with nothing much to do. I still want to play games but electronics games currently feels too much of a bother. The limitations are too obvious and the repetition nature of it also wore me down quite a bit. I decided to take a break and see what else I could do. I always had an interest for tabletop RPGs and back in school played a lot of the big ones (DnD, Pathfinder) and even after I had nobody to play with I still have the habit of just reading the books for the fun of it. By reading the books you kinda play it a little bit, imagining characters and situations. I know some people also feel that way and read the books for this same reason. That however isn’t enough a playing experience for me so I decided to look into solo tabletop games. To my surprise there’s quite a number of them, way beyond those D&D solo adventures nobody play it. More importantly, there’s a lot of weird ones that has nothing to do with playing heroes and fighting monsters.
ChessI tried to find the old thread but it must have died or something. If I missed it, close this one down.
Manafesto ThreadPost any manifestos you've written - they don't need to be political necessarily. Any writings or manifestos you've read that you feel are brilliant are welcome too. Stuff specfically relating to wizardhood is much appreciated. If you haven't written your own before, I urge you to give it a go.
