Let's discuss which supplements we currently take and which ones have worked for us and just have a general discussion about supplements.

No posts about drugs, psychiatric meds or illegal substances in the supplement thread, please.

I've started nootropic called mind lab pro a couple months back and have to say it really does help. I feel the difference although subtle it is there. I can focus better and retain information plus it generally makes watching or reading (I can read a lot more now without losing concentration) much easier for myself, I have clarity and and less stress I was debating going on ADD medication to help with mental faculties before studying but luckily I didn't and chose this instead. Study is more comprehensible as well, mind lab is a bit expensive though I suggest buying a bundle deal if you want to consider long term and even just trying it out might as well because it won't hurt to have more in supply


Same, every year I end up reading another load of theoretical claims for why this supplement might help. They all sound plausible, often have legitimate studies that support it. So I buy them, try them, and not much difference. Done it for 10 years at least.
The reviews are always from people saying they also tried x, y, and a before this and it worked, placebo working for one supplement and not another makes me think they might be honest in their claims. There’s not much to do in life but keep trying random crap so meh, can’t do anything else.


Do you have anxiety? I've heard of people having panic attacks and that ashwagandha makes their anxiety worse. Just thought I'd give you a heads up


Pumpkin seed oil, biotin, and b complex supplements mainly. Typically pumpkinseed and biotin once daily, and the b complex about 30 mins to an hour before working out. It does seem to help out on top of eating something carby.


I've taken many supplements but probably the only one I've noticed to have an immediate effect literally overnight would have to be melatonin. Especially with ZzzQuil. Or NyQuil, but preferably ZzzQuil. I think there was another one I would take at night with these to help me fall asleep quicker but I forgot the name. Probably a prescription med or two, actually.

technology used to fascinate me so much but now i don't like it anymore. when there is some invention coming i always assume there is such a high chance that this will only be used for evil that i usually just disregard it without giving it it's fair chance of impressing me. there is probably plenty of useful stuff i don't care about simply because i am repelled by how they treat people in technology. like cattle, like children. in my heart i feel more and more like an amish, a more simple person who would prefer to build his own wealth with more simple machinery, without the presence of drones, cameras, credit cards,…

AI has been such a turn off. everytime i hear something about AI, my face cringes as if i bit a lemon. i just dont wanna know what it can do anymore. how shit i imagine the world to be if it is full of this artificial perfectly politically correct computer poop.

i've been hearing this word luddite a lot. maybe there is already a sentiment growing.

different poster but this guy has several videos dealing with amish/mennonite peoples. at 27:20, they start talking about splitting opinions in regards to what extent internet and smartphones should be permitted. you will immediately notice that these people seem to have fully modern homes, too, which is far from the stereotype of these types of groups.


The Luddites were not so much ideologically opposed to technology in some reactionary sense. They saw that they would never hold the machines of the rising capitalists, so they smashed them in a desperate attempt to not starve, which is what happened during the early 19th century. They died, the victors wrote the history, and the imperial religion enshrined "progress".

The "ignorance is strength" belief is very modern, and only possible when there are vast institutions which can impose it and make society inescapable and alien. It was around the late 19th century that the vanguard of this reactionarism first popularized their ideas. The old reactionaries just wanted the monarchy back and hated everything that happened in the prior century for all the reasons that made sense. The new reactionaries, and eventually the fascists, embraced futurism and the transformation of humans through technology, to change them into something else. That was when there would be no going back, and "historical progress" was locked in this current Satanic path.


I watched most of his Amish series and really liked it. They seem like good people and live happier and more fulfilled than normalfaggots. I think for the most part they are just victims of slander by various groups. It also heavily depends on what family they belong to since theres one family that keeps it extremely oldschool when it comes to electricity etc.


It's not even stagnant, it's going backwards. People used to have real wood furniture that they built themselves. Quality handmade clothes. They ate their own beef and vegetables that werent genetically engineered for mass production, fresh milk. They exercised and had privacy and personal space. Modern society is more fucked than anyone can even comprehend.


who is to say if those very items are even relatively more expensive today compared to 1900, if you want to buy them?, its just when given the choice consumers wont pay extra for any of that

How's it going?
Here in India, the temperatures are through the roof. And only 10% of the country has access to air conditioning.
People are incredibly belligerent in summers here. It's impossible for a poorfag poojeet like me to study in this temperature. You don't even need a penis here lol all the water comes out as sweat.

For American Frens it's about 110°F.

it's just bad. i whine about gradients in these dumb maps as well

relying on the vibrancy of a color to indicate a decrease, this is the sin that everyone breaks. you can convert it to greyscale and see there is barely any difference between 30c and 40c+ which is insane


to me it looks like there's a pretty big difference



there isn't enough differentiation and there are a bunch of best practices that you shoudl adhere to when making this stuff

example: https://academy.datawrapper.de/article/140-what-to-consider-when-choosing-colors-for-data-visualization
see section 9 and below

in all likelihood, this is some javascript library some random coder created 10 years ago and a weather website is utilizing it. the color scale was chosen completely arbitrarily and not given much thought at all, and no one has thought to modify it

I'm sorry but if you believe in any religion with a divinely inspired canon and mythos, you are a retard. It is the easiest thing in the world to debunk the Bible, the Quran, the Bhagavad Gita, the Book of Mormon, Dianetics etc… It wouldn't even surprise me if Dianetics was the most epistemically plausible, despite appearing to be the most fringe and ridiculous, simply because its the most recent one and therefore probably the most informed by current cosmology and science. I have nothing against a belief in God, which is just a philosophical matter, but these books gaslight you into believing things like a flat earth, a worldwide flood, that the moon was cleaved in two and other various bullshit. This is complete normie behavior because the only thing that keeps these beliefs afloat are the social communities that are invested in them and generate entire copeologies (apologetics) to collectively delude themselves that these books are in fact infallible. You're better than this Wizman.

Thanks wiz. Glad to see I'm not alone in my thinking about this


Most religious people don't believe every religion other than theirs is 100% wrong anyway. It's a strawman.


most religious people dont live like their every action is under the Eye of a divine Punisher, and that the only point of this world is to be a test of who get into the more real eternal world of Heaven or Hell.


2023 Conservatives are 80s liberals and 2023 reactionaries are 1920s liberals and so on and so forth until you get to the beginning of written history, this is well known. Everyone's a liberal until the culture train skips their station and then they animorph into a conservative, like JK Rowling.
Whig history is real but its "future liberals" constantly winning century after century. In 2023 Fukuyama's stuff reads less like gloating it was and more like a sinking feeling and cry for help as they see the train barrel past the 10KYAE Pax Americana station. "Please end history".


Not to derail this thread, but its also worked in the other direction, Ronald Reagan politics are basically John Kasich who ended up speaking at the DNC in 2020, while Nationalism which was taboo in the 80s took the place of conservatism. Macron ran for President on the neoliberal privatization policies of Margaret Thatcher but globalism is treated as the new "left" compared to Lepen who wasn't even on the political map in the 1990s.

So its also yesterday's conservatives are today's globalists, compared to the new nationalists

Horses have 64 chromosomes and donkeys have 62 chromosomes, together they produce mules with 63 chromosomes. If we were to take a sperm cell or an egg from a person with either XXYY, XXXY, or XXXX syndrome and then taken a sperm cell or egg from a chimpanzee and used in vitro fertilization, would this produce a human-chimpanzee hybrid? Chimpanzees have 48 chromosomes and humans have 46 chromosomes, therefore together they might produce humanzees.

What say thee?

i think all the way back in the middle ages, the vatican ruled god could save ETs, because philosophers were putting a rational limit on what god can do, and the Pope said no he can do anything


I wonder whether or not such logic could be applicable to end the death penalty for murderers. Would murdering them suggest that people believe them to be incapable of salvation?

Worst thing modernism ever did was the hard ban on (real) human experimentation, hybrids, and genetic engineering based on ethical/moral/human rights grounds. As if we dont have legions of malnourished children mining coltan or manufacturing Nike kicks or deregulated organ trafficking rings.
Since all the true power players are actively conducting genetic engineering research behind closed doors, the only this ban leads to is genetic warfare and government-backed eugenics, with zero opportunity for civilian research to counterbalance it.


well as another catholic said in the Albigensian Crusade on a town of mixed cathars and catholics, kill em all and let god find his own


Thread to talk and discuss business, savings, and forms of investment.

Soon I am going to resell meat, I already did it a couple of times before, but now I am going to go daily. I can bring 200 kilos of meat in my car since it is for "personal consumption", but only if it is frozen. The margin is around 25-50% per sale, since I am buying direct from the producer, in a cattle-raising area, and I sell it in my city that does not produce meat.
I also thought about selling things like pots, or plastic things, but it's really not worth it, because no matter how much I make a product that sells, it's not something for mass consumption, and due to the economic crisis I will gradually lose customers. I also really like decentralization, since I can sell anywhere in my province, I can also sell any product, and I can also change products or buy new products, such as firewood, coal, etc.

But if I realized something, it doesn't matter if you sell meat, vegetables, hardware, dairy, alcohol, soft drinks, or whatever, the majority sales method is the same, you go to the store and offer the merchandise, and The only thing that determines if you are going to buy or not is the price.

Well stop. Paying taxes is no longer justified. The money isn't benefiting the lives or security of you or your people.

I've been digging around the internet archives and looking at TV and ads in the VHS collection going all the way back to the 80s. Things seemed so good then…. can anyone older explain to me in detail what those times between the 90s and early 2000s where like ? the 85-99 period seemed really peaceful considering the type of TV that was on…what happened ?

Pic unrelated.

>Now someone that you will never interact with in your life can influence your opinion of yourself. Complete fabrications sway people's emotions and behaviors. None of this shit matters. So wild.

I still see all this moaning about how young succubi are affected by "unrealistic body image issues" but nobody ever seems to bring up that males a just as plagued by this shit now. I saw someone pointing out in that streamer 'Dream's face reveal that he kept noticeably angling his head to show off his jaw line. Pretty hilarious. I don't remember even the biggest normie males being this obsessed with their looks when i was at school. The modern internet has turned an entire generation into neurotic messes.


Another proof that modernity is a burden, life must have been simpler and more pleasant when you could barely see your reflection in the lake you would wash yourself in. Every new thing just adds unecessarry complexity and problems.

This, all I keep seeing is norwood reaper, small dick energy, jawline stuff and I've seen many zoomer guys bully each other for looks like gossipy succubi. This whole shallow snapchat tinder era is complete cancer and switched the male dynamic up completely. You can't watch anything without a guy getting bullied for his looks, you could literally just make a cooking video and people will end up messing with you because of your looks and it's also so many guys doing it too, it's completely gay.

It's also mainstream as well and men have to suck it up but somehow we all have to endure some lesbian cunts wrath because she's not a pretty succubus. These fucked up dykes even make ugly female characters in video games now just because they are butthurt while they are the same cunts that bully guys online for having perfectly normal penis sizes, their sexual experiences and looks etc.

All this superficial shallow bullshit pisses me off because these cunts present so many double standards when it comes to men. Men just have to swallow the blackpill and live with it but the mainstream tries to make us feel oh so sorry for succubi all the time and as soon as someone points out that a old succubus looks less appealing than a young one they make a whole global affair out of it.

Kill yourself zoomer.

The archetypal nerd erased from existence. It must be schizophrenic to be an outcast as a zoomer when even being a virgin is a label used by normalfags who need to be more unique.


People can see their reflection in water.


Understand the difference between barely and none please. Looking at yourself in a lake is different from looking into a clear mirror, the lights and focus etc. It must have been quite different when these natural reflections were the only thing that would show what you look like.

Background: A person with more than one set of DNA within their body is called a genetic Chimera. Chimerism is (supposedly) rare, but there have been a handful of cases where someone will even fail a DNA test, because the DNA sample taken from their body differs from the rest of their DNA. For example, a Chimera might take a DNA test, and the results might show that the DNA was from one of his siblings – even if he is an only child.

One potential cause of Chimerism occurs while in the womb. Like when the mother is pregnant with twins, but later one of the twins has seemingly vanished. When this happens, usually it means one of the twins died in the womb, and its remains were absorbed into the surviving baby.
When this occurs, it's possible that the dead twin's DNA might survive within the survivor's body.

So, hypothetically… if the surviving twin managed to retrieve his dead twin's DNA from his own body, could he use that DNA sample to make a clone of his unborn sibling?
Let's assume that in this scenario, cloning is not controversial and is completely legal, acceptable, and safe.

DNA is scrambled each time iirc so most likely he wouldn't be a perfect copy of his unborn sibbling, at least not yet.
