Does anyone here do deadlifts? I'm thinking about working to get a god-tier deadlift. My first goal is to make it up to 405lbs deadlift and then see how far I can take it from there. Right now I can do 255 for 5x5. Any wizbros here with tips?

Right now I'm 80 lbs overweight and need to stop eating so much food. The problem is I'm addicted to food and since I'm a 28 year old virgin, it's not like I have much else to do so it's gonna be hard to cut back on the food. Does anyone also have tips on how to feel full and not feel the need to eat food?

Weights have an single mass. Resistance bands "weigh" more than their advertised weight on a ramping scale. A 100lb resistance on the floor could turn in a 250lb resistance at the apogee of your squat. You might feel like you're lifting more weight, but if you're not getting the full extension you're wasting a lot of growth potential.

$1,000 for a rack and barbell with some weights is absurd. Buy used.

I will buy a barbell and some plates and start doing these. Do I need more?


If you get a couple plates with a grip hole cut out, you can add some lat raises in to the mix.


Would work for awhile provided you remain consistent in number of workouts and slowly increase weight and/or volume.


if u new drop shrugs, squat, and overhead press

22 - Flight 714 to Sydney
The book with the broken plot. Irregular, constantly changing pace, abandoning ideas, abandoning characters, loses focus all the time. The art is good and it’s surprisingly enjoyable despite its shortcomings. However the best I can say for it is that I prefer it to exist than to not exist. One of the worst books in my opinion. I picked this panel because Calculus walking around with his pendulum is such an iconic image for the series and here we have a clear instance of that. He’s practicing dowsing, a pseudoscience practice that kinda works in Tintin’s universe, it almost works sometimes, but not quite.

23 - Tintin and the Picaros
The book with the broken characters. Are these impostors? What have they done with the real Haddock and Tintin? That buffoon can’t even get his pants right. I don’t know who he is but he’s not Tintin. What better way to celebrate this bizarre entry in the series with this bizarre panel. A South American carnival. Haddock, Tintin and Alcazar donning Gilles outfits coming from the inside of a giant king with machine guns, saving the Thompsons from certain death! Balloons and music everywhere. Total chaos. I guess you have to enjoy it for what it is.

24 - Tintin and Alph-Art
The book that never was. Not much to say for this one. It looks like it would be better than the last two. It’s a curious book because we get a lot of sketches, something you don’t get to see often. It’s fun to look at the skeleton and rough ideas behind the finished product. Here’s the very last page Herge ever did for Tintin. He never completed it, page 42. The last panel: Tintin is being taken away by the villain of the book. He’ll be encased in plaster and transformed into a statue, an art piece. In a way it’s a very fitting last page. There’s no danger for Tintin here, he is already an art piece. The villain doesn’t seem to understand his plan poses no threat.

Here's my list of books I enjoyed the most in order. 1 is the one I enjoyed the most, 23 the least. I consider Picaros and Flight 714 to be objectively the worst entries (that's not to say they're bad or not entertaining) but that doesn't mean I couldn't enjoy them for what they are. Tintin in America is my least favorite "proper" Tintin adventure. Tintin and Alpha-Art is in there for completion sake, being just a few sketches and half of a first draft for a plot, and I feel the same about Land of the Soviets, being more of a prototype than anything.

1 Tintin in Tibet
2 The Crab with the Golden Claws
3 The Black Island
4 Cigars of the Pharaoh
5 The Seven Crystal Balls
6 Prisoners of the Sun
7 Red Rackham's Treasure
8 The Secret of the Unicorn

10 The Red Sea Sharks

After Tintin I felt like trying something a little more recent. During a quick search I read a lot of good things about Donjon, so I decided to pick it up. Donjon, or Dungeon, is a parody of DnD tropes and it's a lot smarter than it sounds. Not the parody itself, though that is often good too, but the quiet, serious moments are very good and it gets you by surprise. If I'm being brutally honest, I didn't quite care for the two main characters though, Herbert and Marvin. I'm not sure why, they're OK characters, nothing obviously wrong with them. Maybe it's the artwork, they look pretty much like a sketch, though I find the artwork decent and serviceable for the most part. Perhaps is the fact the Herbert tries to be funny to much, it feels forced at times, I don't know.

I read the first two volumes, Duck heart and King of Fighting, in English they're bound in a single volume as Duck Heart. The first story introduces the premise. A huge dungeon in DnD style, and we focus on the guys running this deadly labyrinth, keeping the monsters fed, corridors clean and traps functioning. Also we're introduced to our hero, Herbert the duck. He's given the job to bring a barbarian to the upper management people but when he accidentally got the guy killed, hr decides to pretend to be a barbarian and go in his place. This turns out to be a big mistake and after he gets captured they send Marvin the Dragon to help him out.

Their friendship is central to the book but I couldn't quite see why Marvin would bother to befriend this guy. Anyway, it's not important. They fight some monsters, retrieve some treasure and save the dungeon from certain destruction. It's mostly comedy but like I said there are some heartfelt moments in there I was not expecting. I was not too impressed but interested enough to try the second book. This time Marvin has a more central role to the plot and it explores his past a little bit. This is a much better story, but again I didn't quite care for the main characters.

That said, I completely understand why this is such a beloved series. It's funny, has a lot of clever moments and it's visually appealing.. for the most part. Apparently the authors are planning a humongous series, sprawling dozens of books. I didn't loved it enough for that but it was certainly fun. Maybe I'll come back to it eventually but for now I'll be trying something else.


Forgot to add the wiki to the series.

Never read Dungeon but something Trondheim related i read last year ( and when i say 'read' i mean that very loosely as this is a wordless comic) was la mouche, or 'the fly' (nothing to do with the Cronenburg movie). It was turned into a series of short 5 minute animated cartoons that used to play ad nauseam on television over here when i was a kid. Just looking at his work makes me a little nostalgic.

No it isn't.
There have always and will always be male into true crime, as it's a interesting subject with lots of different things to get interested in.


They weren't handsome, you probably think they're so because they dressed with a certain "style" and their individual pictures in their school yearbook were well taken but in reality, Dylan was a particularly ugly faced lanklet and Eric was a manlet with a deformity on the chest.
That, with their way of dressing and their rebellious attitude, are probably the main factors that caused them to be bullied.

Any pictures?


Nah, I'm not in the habit of photographing my food, sorry. This is the recipe I was using though. It has a video showing what it looks like. Mine was fairly similar but I used a 1 lb piece of fillet rather than those medallions they have (and also regular cabbage rather than chinese cabbage). Probably has something to do with why it took 4x as long to cook as what the recipe said it would. I was skeptical it would cook that fast having cooked salmon before and sure enough it took the usual 15-20 minutes to cook that it usually does. I think that turned out to be a good thing though because the miso, sake, and sugar solution they have you put on top was a little thick and I don't think it would have had time to melt down off the salmon and into all the vegetables in the 4 minutes they say it should have taken. As it came out the vegetables were all quite soft but that was fine, they were delicious.



also looking over the recipe again I realize I forgot to mention there are shitake mushrooms in there also. It was good, you should try it if you're interested.


A picture is worth a thousand words. It's cool to have pictures of the food you cook, it's a way to keep track of your efforts.

What do you think of Pewdiepie drawing challenge? In 3 months he improved more than some "artists" have in their whole lives.


sounds viable if you do it every day. i doubt most people practicing art have the patience to do it long enough and consistently

all skills have a brief period where you can gain incredible proficiency in little time and then you plateau and it takes exponential more effort to improve

3 months sounds about right for a skill. at my last job i replaced a 70 year old woodworker who had worked all his life, and i was only trained for 3ish months. most military boot camps are under 3 months off the top of my head also

did not watch the video


After so much pushing I finally decided to watch the video and was not really impressed. It doesn't help that he is just copying anime succubi faces. Betty Edwards five days course has more dramatic results.

Supposedly at least one day he skipped.

> Journey to the End of the Night, Louis-Ferdinand Céline

What is the night? What night is Céline talking about? The night is this current world we live on, this zeitgeist.

In this work, Céline takes the reader through all the horrors of the XX century. At not little important moment in history he was placed: he fought at WW1 at the french side; the final collapse of the old european world, the end of the colonial empires, the triumph of America and the "americanization" of the globe.

In this semi biographical work, Ferdinand Céline through his alter ego Ferdinand Bardamu, narrates in first person his own life and his experiences across the world.

Without thinking much about it, Bardamu ends in the trenches at WW1. Obviously it is not needed to remark that this was hell and war did a number on Bardamu's mind. In Bardamu own words: he was deflowered by war. The experience left him with an immense hate for anything bellicose. There are various scenes that I would like to highlight here:

- A conversation that Bardamu has with a man in a war hospital. This man tells it clearly: when the State kindly whisper to you ear inviting you to join war, that's because they are going to turn you into cannon fodder

- In a conversation Bardamu has with Lola, an american succubus he is dating, he confesses to her that he is utterly afraid of coming back to the front, he is a coward. After that moment, Lola is disgusted with him. All her affection was founded on Bardamu's supposed manliness and will to die fighting. Once he reveals the true, he is worthless for Lola.

- Something that Bardamu or another soldier says: The succubi and the children will keep on living while them will just be buried and forgotten like poor wretches. But he wants to live no matter what.

What's Céline moral of the fable? Sure, the sacrifice of men was needed in order for humanity to advance. But what did the sacrificed men get ? nothing, they are expendable. Céline himself does not want to follow the same path willinglly and finds the sacrifice of war as utter madness

After the turmoil of the war, Bardamu goes to colonial Africa, hoping to "make it" there. What did he find there? An immense jungle devouring the little sprouts of civilization and the poor native people. The colonial empire is filled with corruption and is composed of degenerates and thieves. There is nothing there. The cPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


We ain't in the XX century anymore, outdated book.


Obvious bad joke/troll post but anyway, Céline is more relevant now than ever. I will also read his "spiritual successor" in the near future: Houellebecq


i read whatever in a psychiatric ward. it was a good book. there is a movie too.

I finished this recently. I wasn't engaged at first but as the book went by I started to feel more empathetic towards Yozo and his missfortune. Yes, he is a sexhaver and I can't relate to most of his experiences but the core struggle of being an alien to human life managed to touch my heart. I will try reading the adaptation by Junji Ito next to get another perspective on the whole story. I would also like to learn more about Osamu Dazai and his life.

I'm watching this right now and I'm enjoying it.


Finished watching all seasons of this. I don't watch much TV but I sense there's a trend to these shows where you get a decent first and perhaps second season but third season on it starts to get worse and by the end it's just crap all the way through. I'm not sure why it happens. Maybe the writers have a number of good ideas they want to explore and then if it gets successful they're forced to scrape the bottom of the barrel to keep pumping episodes out long after they ran out of ideas. Southland is an example of that. Very good first 2 seasons and then it's all downhill from there. The only character they managed to keep consistent to the end was the female detective. The other ones they kept fucking it up like making Michael Cudlitz's character an idiot by the end. Oh well. I might watch True Detective now or maybe I'll finally sit down through The Sopranos, a show I've been interested in solely due to its constant use on the wageslave thread.


I have been watching a few old BBC shows,
>I Claudius
>Yes Minister
They are surprisingly good shows, a bit dated but they still hold up today in terms of writing and acting quality. They are all loosely based on real events/people, the early roman emperors, british prisoners during WW2, government employees, and they do a good job showing life and challenges during these times.


If you want another good one from that time period try the Shogun miniseries. There is a new adaptation coming out soon that looks promising but the 1980 version is still a nice watch


Finished the newest season of True Detective. I should have stopped after 20 minutes of episode 1, but no I just had to go and watch all of them because I had literally nothing better to watch with my dinner each week.

It was very clearly made for millenial succubi. It's by FAR worse than the other 3 seasons.

I don't think therapy is necessarily complete bullshit, I just think most of the dogma of academic psychology and the systems in which the field exists are. That the woke shit is stupid goes without saying, but the aspects of the field that subtly dehumanize people might not be readily apparent. Diagnostic labels/disorders are inherently imprecise, have tons of overlap, have very unclear origins and, in some ways, either blame the individual for their problems or don't recognize that it might not be their fault that they have them. The vast majority of mental health conditions are reactions to trauma mixed with whatever genetic predisposition cocktail they might have. Even if the way the person is behaving is unsavory and very erratic, they're behaving that way because people/society/life have fucked them and that's not their fault. It's true that, at the end of the day, you have to be the one to find the courage within yourself to face your problems, but it's ironic and sad that the mental health system doesn't actually help people do this like they're supposed to because the system is fucked to the core. Psych meds are crafted by ghoulish businessmen to make money not to help people, therapists are trained to view and handle things in a narrow way, the psychopathic health insurance system incentivizes mental health docs to be shrewd businessmen and put their profits first to get what they can to survive (can't speak for places with socialized medicine, but from what I hear, it has its own issues on this matter) and colleges/universities are staffed by either boomers with archaic boomer views on mental health or woke morons pushing their bullshit agenda. That's not even to mention how many people that go into this field are either just incompetent, bad fucking people or otherwise doing it for the wrong reasons (the stereotype of fucked up people studying psychology to understand themselves is a cliche but 100% true from my experience). On top of all this, it's a massive pain in the ass to navigate this system as a layperson in order to find care. Even if you're educated on this matter and know what to look for, it's basically just trial and error, if you can even afford it and have the time to make appointments.

At the end of the day, more shrinks should just stop being shrinks and just be people. I don't want to talk to a fucking doctor, I want to talk to a real human being who can actually listen, empathize and give input as needed. I don't wPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


>daniel mackler
i have a hard time accepting his philisophy of
>everyone is good
as a fact and not just a cope


What if you have accepted personality disorder x? I am not even trying to change at this point. I am 31, I made this thread back in that day. And all that happened ever since is that I accept now that I don't like dealing with people, that I don't gain anything from it. I can interact with them if I have to, and sometimes I even do it more or less on free terms. But eventually I don't enjoy it, or I only enjoy insofar as I know it will end and that I'll be alone again. I am the happiest when in bed and alone with my thoughts and no upcoming duty around the corner. But I have learned to accept daily common tasks and keep order of some things. It gives me a sense of being a decent human being. I also stopped drugs except alcohol. That's great and all, but it didn't change me.


most people here dont need therapy or drugs they need people to invest in them, connection in community, access to resources, positive experiences to change brain up. what else said in this thread about it only being a money making industry and for profit of death, that's spot on. i would have had so much better of a life, if i hadn't been forced onto these heavy drugs early on in puberty. for no good reason either, a form of child abuse only. acted as puberty blockers, messed up hormones, brain development overall. then they got their claws into me again in my 20's and their drugs did a lot of damage. had i been left to figure it out on my own, i would have been profoundly better off. maybe a really good therapist that was invested in helping people and not just a job, but they are so rare as to not even exist.

my 20's and part of 30's disappeared to being on those substances which are there to keep you sedated and pacified and contented with your lot in life. they didn't make things better for me, they made my life a lot worse and took from me the energy and motivation i needed to be able to work on some things. it also was an easy excuse in that, the idea there is something wrong with the person instead of looking and admitting ok society did fuck up as a whole here, and didn't give this particular individual a fair shot. it's all more bullshit to justify 'meritocracy' while making money off the pain and misery of people.


I have a suspicion that treatments like hypnosis are probably better than many "traditional" therapeutic techniques.
Not because I think hypnosis is some magic cure all or has special properties, but simply because it's results focused and goal oriented, unlike far too many forms of psychological therapy.

Pipe tobacco is a hobby, right? There's the element of collecting pipes and trying various blends, which resembles wine tasting in how elaborately some people talk about them. Any wiz pipe smokers here? Any favourite blends you'd recommend? Show me your wizpipe(s) (no homo).

Here's my pipe and some tobacco I'm currently smoking. The one in the tin is Old Gowrie

> its not about how long you live its about your quality of life
exactly this is why you don't smoke at all especially not tobacco. It's as much a hobby as watching paint dry.


>I do drugs because I can't take life without pussy
that's pretty much this post


what i was only addressing the single vs married question. i dont even smoke or drink. it doesnt make sense what you said anyway because heaps of sexhavers smoke and do drugs, way more than wizards. they're doing it because they can't take life even with poon? what?


Your point implies that the anguish of not having a partner is diminished by your hobby. You arbitrarily set up romantic partnership as a form of ultimate wellbeing, that I can only conclude was derived from your own yearnings, to the point of you producing an "unequivocal" answer. It's unequivocal only in relation to your own mental state at best.


youre discussing something different that im not. its ok. its not easy to always be understood. i didnt do what you said either, you would do well to learn the difference between implication and inference. its as though you are projecting a bunch of stuff onto me its strange kind of but that's ok too. most people here are going to be a little messed up at least.
