Do you use drugs? Where do you get them (not asking for specific sources only like for example: The darknet (sorry if that's the wrong term), dealers, research chemicals from the internet)? Is setting up TOR, tails and getting bitcoins worth the hassle? Or will i get busted by cops anyway? Are there other easier ways to acquire substances?

I'm 25 and I was a NEET since I was 16. I stole a 30mg Oxycodone from my grandma in April and I felt the most profound sense of happiness I had ever felt, my mood tends to stay around a 4/10, but this stuff made me an 11, seriously, that's how good I felt. I ended quitting NEETdom and getting a min wage job just so I could buy more. Once it gets too expensive I plan on switching to heroin. I fucking love this stuff.

You realize this is how people end up homeless sleeping in the back alley, right?

 No.51240

>>51237
Stop making generalizations, sure *some* people can end up homeless, but others can be successful (just google functional heroin users). I mean look at me, I've been using daily since April, I'm up to 70mg (used rectally) a day, and I work 6 days a week just fine. In the morning I take a small 10mg dose to stop withdrawal, then a larger 60mg dose in the evening. The only way I can see myself going homeless is if my job starts drug testing me.

Sorry for ranting, I'm just sick of this D.A.R.E propaganda.

Switzerland has a state-supported cohort of heroin addicts and they are functional, productive members of society ( https://www.northcarolinahealthnews.org/2019/01/28/switzerland-fights-heroin-with-heroin/ ). It is the illegality of the drug that often makes people lose everything, not simply taking it. It's basically just another drug, like alcohol or tobacco.

I 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.

I especially find the science, technology, futurology, AI videos very uplifting from the usual pessimism I dwell on.

Despite 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.

I'll just get us started with some unsolved questions in philosophical debates, with a preference for topics which might be of reference to Wizards.

http://plato.stanford.edu/published.html

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unsolved_problems_in_philosophy

Free Will vs Determinism

Qualia: How do I know that my color green is the same for you?

Materialism vs Idealism

Does God exist?

What is the meaning of life?

Is sexual reproduction immoral?

Wizzies, I've never thought I'd say this, but where should one start studying philosophy? As in, what books, and in what order should you read to get a decent grasp on both the history of Western philosophy and on various teachings and schools of thought that appeared throughout the years? Another thing, in what way should philosophy be studied? Should I take notes, apply the many principles different philosophers put forward, debate about and discuss the things I read in Internet communities? What if I will find myself biased, positively or negatively, towards what the philosophers write? If I end up reading two philosophers works of which contradict or criticize each other, what should I do in such case? And finally, would it be wrong to use different insights from different philosophers in my life?

 No.48488

>>48487
You can discuss the contradictions with others, but you have to choose for yourself who and what to believe. Philosophy is difficult and huge and confusing at times. Start by reading whatever interests you first, but you should know the classics (like Plato) and the Bible. Most of philosophy is chronological, so just read the oldest to newest. Taking notes helps me when I study, but you have to decide for yourself if you're going to apply any principles.

>Keep the faculty of effort alive in you by a little gratuitous exercise every day. That is, be systematically heroic in little unnecessary points, do every day or two something for no other reason than its difficulty, so that, when the hour of dire need draws nigh, it may find you not unnerved and untrained to stand the test. Asceticism of this sort is like the insurance which a man pays on his house and goods. The tax does him no good at the time, and possibly may never bring him a return. But, if the fire does come, his having paid it will be his salvation from ruin. So with the man who has daily inured himself to habits of concentrated attention, energetic volition, and self-denial in unnecessary things. He will stand like a tower when everything rocks around him, and his softer fellow-mortals are winnowed like chaff in the blast.

>We are spinning our own fates, good or evil, and never to be undone. Every smallest stroke of virtue or of vice leaves its never-so-little scar. The drunken Rip Van Winkle, in Jefferson's play, excuses himself for every fresh dereliction by saying, "I won't count this time!" Well, he may not count it, and a kind Heaven may not count it; but it is being counted none the less. Down among his nerve-cells and fibres the molecules are counting it, registering and storing it up to be used against him when the next temptation comes.

 No.51233

I remember that. It was a response to some guy saying the comic was shit because the main character was just a chad or something. I don't recall exactly what I said though, sorry. It was something about Conan being the barbarian's archetype and the comic working exactly because of it. The fact his absolute masculinity is played to the point of silliness and he can brute force his way though a grimdark world infested with magic and monsters makes the perfect character to create fun comic book stories with. It also makes him more impervious against political correctness, as both Conan and the world he lives in is suppose to be the darkest age of man in all its aspects. I don't know, it's just fucking great imo.

Hey if you want to try picking up again it would be cool to have someone to talk to about Conan. It's hard to get into but if you read just one issue a day or something and let that sink in you can have a great time.

I haven't played much chess for quite a while. As for opening, I'm mostly comfortable with the Sicilian, and Queen's gambit. I used to do 1.b3 Nimzowitsch Attack and 1.g3 Hungarian Opening, when I was practicing hypermodern and fianchetto, but never been very successful with this style. I also quite like Alekhine Defense and the theory behind, but not very good with it either.

Guess I should study more.

I basically have all the upper parts for the bolt action ar pistol build and waiting on the lower parts.
One thing I am wondering though is what is the most convenient way of safely sealing off the gas hole on the barrel.
One option would be to tap it then epoxy a screw or something in the hole. Or I could order a gasblock and install it upside-down.
I am thinking the gasblock method would be most convenient and have less likely to go wrong but I will have to order and wait for the part. Then again I still want to order a compensator/break for the build so I could just add it to the order.
Still, I am open to advice.

 No.51187

>epoxying a screw into a gas port
Normal epoxy turns to dust in sustained temperatures above roughly 200F. There are times I need to disassemble a knife grip or something else I've epoxied, I boil it in water for a few minutes and the stuff disintegrates. Even with a screw your epoxy would eventually fail under the heat.

If it were me I would try brazing the screw in with brass or copper but that would mean heat treating the part afterward.

There's epoxy designed for high heat but the pressure and friction of the gas may still ruin it. Dunno.

 No.51188

>>51187
I was thinking more along the lines of jb weld which is fine up to 550℉ and ~5000 psi. The temp would never get high enough in a bolt gun to get anywhere close to that but the pressures it would be exposed to concern me. Theoretically it could be exposed to twice the max pressure it is rated for. I would think the screw would strengthen the hold so it could withstand it but it I would not know for certain without testing.
But honestly the upsidedown gasblock is probably a better solution. It is something I have heard other people use and test without any problems. So it is safer since it is proven.

 No.51231

I kind of want to try it for lolz. Only I would use mainly aliexpress cheap parts because fuck spending over $200 bucks(if you include the optic and rail mount) on something that out there.
