Why is it acceptable to make fun of pale people? I'm from a Mediterranean country and don't go out to tan because I burn. Every summer I have to deal with smarmy and smug remarks about it from friends and family , some are pretty insulting Thank god winter is here soon.

Thats not really on mediterreans, is hard to teach monkeys to be civilized and yet those client kingdoms were more advanced than the millenia of shitty tribal huts the barbarians lived in, with rome they had roads, roman infraestructure , sewage system and roman institutions.

>>232741
barbarians were notorious for not bathing ever and smelling awful too, they bleached their hair with urine and always smeared it with animal grease from the leftovers of cooking, i don´t think they were adept at soap, no.

Even arabs wrote about barbarians lack of hygiene and etiquette, pic related is by Ahmad ibn Fadlan

you must take cold baths or cold showers,and avoid spicy food. This lowers the libido.
now,to avoid porn read up on the evils of it,and research the process of human rotting after death.if you visualize a corpse sexual thoughts wont arise

My urge to watch porn is diminishing over time. I've lost my streaks a few times but it's getting easier each time. I feel I have a lot more control over it now.
A while back I watched porn for the first time after 15 days nofap and it felt like I was doing heroin. It is a shockingly strong stimulant and you don't even realize it when you're addicted. No more of this degeneracy for me.

Thrusting your hips into it rather then using the motion of your hands.
Doing this once already worked up and nearly at the end is quite satisfying.

You can also use two hands, one stimulating the shaft the other ether the head or balls.

I was complaining to some co-workers about how there isn't a single good restaurant anywhere in the entire United States other than select areas like las Vegas and new York.
When retards in Arizona want to go to a """"fancy restaurant"""" they think of olive garden lmao. olive garden is practically a school cafeteria. All "fancy" restaurants get shipped frozen shit in plastic bags from China and Mexico. Americans have never and will never experience real cuisine.

The coworkers were saying I'm full of shit and just being narrow sighted but when I asked them for an example of a real restaurant they had none, none exist outside of las Vegas and new York, maybe Beverly hills. they couldn't give me one example. If I was a millionaire living here in Phoenix, I'd still be eating frozen shit weeks old for every meal because that's all we get. Prepared by Mexican teenagers and not chefs.

it's not a matter of taste. i'm not condemning their taste. if you like olive garden, that's fine. i eat out at restaurants almost every day. the point is that if I wanted a HIGHER END restaurant, there are no options available here. you want to go on a truly fancy dinner date and spend hundreds of bucks and get your money's worth and have real food? well, you can't!

they have no frame of reference, and they don't realize it. how can they know what's good when they're eating frozen soup out of a plastic bag? they're getting angry defending their favorite lunchroom cafeteria shitholes because that's all they know and they've been conditioned into thinking it's fine dining.
that's all that's available.
that's my point.
every restaurant chain in US uses frozen shit and underaged cooks.
and many states have no higher end restaurants whatsoever.
everyone in US is going to die having never tasted a real meal unless theyre making $200k+ salaries in new york.

$100+ per person restaurants in arizona are only faux fancy. they still use frozen ingredients from china.

why do i care?

cause i like tasty food and i like fresh ingredients that don't have carcinogens like plastic infused frozen chinese bagged soup has. i thought that would be self-explanatory
i like going to an italian restaurant and having italian food made by italians instead of frozen chinese food microwaved by mexicans.

Weirdly what set me in the right direction was reading about minimalism. Just throwing away tons of shit i no longer needed also cleansed my soul. It's freeing to have less item in your life.
If you're interested try fumio sasaki goodbye things. Minimalism is kinda hyped these days but i don't think its a bad thing.

I also highly recommend reading Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl. I personally got some good insight in my own life and how i view it.

Does anyone here crave strength?
Since reading baki and kengan ashua I do,im too lazy but I also seek a powerful body,to be a good fighter. I feel like its an awakened primal urge. i want to go to the gym and lift ,or lift rocks,or such things.
right now i cant pay a pro MMA training but I would like to.
since we dont have jobs we can focus purely on powering-up our bodies.

Does it bother anyone else that the body starts to degrade so quickly? I want to know what it's like to be in peak physical condition, but I'm already in my late 20's and haven't started exercising yet. I only have another ten years tops since usually by the time athletes are in their late 30s they can no longer compete due to physical degredation. Honestly most of the time it happens even earlier than that.

That is professional elite athletes competing at the absolute world peak of human ability.

I've done powerlifting on and off for years but stopped frequently due to wageslaving and just getting sick of having to go to the gym and be around people. At this point I'm waiting to be able to move out and get a place with more space so I can buy a rack and equipment for a home gym. I fucking hate having to work out around people.

I've considered getting into boxing before because watching Kids Return got me interested in it, but I want to minimize any interactions with people so that's never happening.

>I just read the other day about bodybuilders having the exact same heart problems that obese people have later in life. Apparently the heart doesn't care if you're overweight over excess fat or excess muscle

I'm not familiar with what effects large amounts of muscle mass have on cardiovascular health, but there are a lot of other things that could be contributing that, like steroids (see Zyzz and Rich Piana), bad diets (I've read of bodybuilders bulking on Taco Bell and other fast food, because they need tons of calories and it's easy to get down), and lack of cardio (I've read of bodybuilders refraining from running at all in order to keep their body fat at an exact percentage).

Going that far is stupid in my view but most of those are people competing in competitions. There are bodybuilders who don't go to that extent and just do it as a hobby who seem healthy and don't have dumb-looking physiques.

>>232430
>Particularly is a offense, bodybuilders has almost nothing in strength

Not really true, you can easily find videos of bodybuilders pushing/pulling fairly large amounts of weight. Most won't hold a candle to the average powerlifter or olympic lifter but they're definitely above average.

Just a reminder for those of us who feel trapped in this rat race of a society: it's not your fault.

It's not your fault for being here.

It's not your fault if you can't get along in the rat race.

It's not your fault that there isn't a working spot for everyone.

It's not your fault that society favours extroverts and 'normal people'.

It's not your fault that you can't make it in this life.

And remember:

It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

There comes a time when the next crisis enters the worldstage. By that time, the 'normies' are the first to collapse. The naieve ones who still thought it was a good idea to put more kids into this world. The wageslaves who's identities are based upon the amount of stuff / clothes / cars they buy. The delusional boomers who told you to 'just man up, go to a company, do a firm handshake and get that job'.

Remember kiddos:

If you have nothing, you have nothing to lose either.

Nature vs nurture is what makes a man who he is. You don't choose how you're raised nor your genes.

People have faults, they are faulty. Like a fault line in a volcano. The word guilty is a different thing, a word like please, idiomatic in it's nature. It's pointless to judge people so, or yourself. How can you be guilty if you can't be at fault and only be faulty due to your upbringing and or genetics? You can't be guilty. Ever. No matter how hard your body fucks up that you're trapped inside of.

That was a close one, you almost had to take responsibility for your life for a second there. But you're right, you have genes and you had an upbringing, therefore you have no agency over your actions. Either you've discovered a great loophole for getting away with murder or you're an idiot.

In all seriousness, the trouble with this types of reasoning is that it's incredibly good for getting rid of any kind of bad feels in the form of guilt and anxiety, but the price you pay is that you limit your reality and destroy any sense of meaning from your actions. That relief you feel is just your mind shrinking as it expects less and less of itself. The nihilistic path always leads to more suffering in the end because it's a refusal to grow and fight and when you stop doing that you naturally deteriorate and die.

I get it, kiddo. You got dropped into the world because two people wanted to enjoy themselves. Now you have wishes and desires and the universe refuses to organize itself into your preferred form. Hell, you still have to use your appendages to shove food in your mouth, you still gotta direct the stream of piss from your dick so it doesn't go all over yourself. I get it, it's a drag, but you evolved to see causal relationship between actions and events, use it so you end up in a better place.

Your shitty narrative is nothing but an invisible cage, one that enjoy rattling for my own amusement.
