How much effort do you put into appearance?
When I look at other men they always have recently cut hair and tidy clothes, clean shoes
Meanwhile I got stains on my jacket and pants, shoes are really dirty, and haven't had a haircut in months

Alot, but many would consider it a little.
>wear polos or sweaters and cargo pants for work, dress code is lax
>shave 2-3x a week
>comb my bangs so they stand up like Chad's
The last one makes a huge difference in how people treat me at work.
And the obvious stuff:
>shower daily, cuz water is fun
>trim nails once they're ridiculously long
>help with the laundry daily


I haven't had a haircut since 2019.
I shave once every month because it gets too itchy.
I brush my teeth only once right before going to bed.
I drink a lot of coffee and tea so my teeth are badly stained.
I have long fingernails and toenails and only trim them when I start cutting myself or start to break them.
I still am wearing some of the clothes I had in middle school back in 2005 with most of wardrobe being from my high school years.
I shower once to twice a week mainly due to my balls getting really irritated and itchy when I go too long.
I have put on almost 100 pounds since 2020.
I have extremely bad skin and acme.
I only wear deodorant when I leave the house.
I haven't left my house since 2020.
I am covered in body hair and look like a gorilla when I'm naked.
I fap around 6 times a day and that impacts my hair, smell, and skin a lot.


Haven't showered or brushed my teeth once this year. All my clothes are falling apart, I wash clothes and change clothes any time I go outside (rarely, now that I've had no money to buy kratom or benzedrex at the store).

I know I am disgusting and ugly. I was even before I fell into this depression that stops me from taking care of myself. It makes it even harder to want to fix myself, you know?

I've fixed myself up in the past. Hygienically-speaking. When you go long periods without taking care of yourself, problems arise when you try to start up good habits again. You gotta go slowly and add things little by little. The first time you shower after months of no showers, you'll be covered in flakes of dead skin after you dry off. Literally all over your body. I haven't washed my thinning hair in years and I fear I might even go bald the first time I use shampoo!

When you first begin to floss regularly, you bleed a lot, even if you're careful. It feels like your teeth are loose afterwards, but this stuff goes away when you've been doing it regularly for a few weeks. Brushing the teeth will make them feel loose too, and there will be blood, no matter how soft the bristle are, no matter how gentle you brush, no matter how much pressure you use with your electric brush.

There is so much work to be done, just to become the ugly specimen I used to be, you know what I mean? I feel no reason to even bother.


I have a shower every 2-5 days and do maintenance like brushing teeth and using beard growth kits every so often, I want to get into a routine and commit daily. I use to not give a fuck about my appearance when going out in public would look homeless, as of only recent I bought a bulk of fresh clothes online that make me look desirable I guess? and will continue to buy more. I don't leave the house often but when I do I like to look good


i work with someone who is kinda ugly with acne and stuff, but:
- he dresses well
- is skinny
- has stylish hair
- shaves
my ape brain gives him a lot of recognition for that

Generation Alpha is screwed if they don't become conservatives. To clarify, to be a conservative, you don't need religion.

In 10 years conservatives will be socialists on the side


well a huge amount of conservatives right now would agree that the state should run the economy over private corporations for the sake of conservative values.


Then what the fuck are conservative values


Conservatism just means old=good, and at this point it means nothing.


small town churches and such provide good support circles for poor people. the religion might be garbage, but the interactions that religious people have with one another can be useful

to say religion is evil and bad and serves no purpose… idk, many of the government support services for homessless and jobless people in my state are incredibly just redirects to various church conctacts and religious philanthropy groups

Your sage is negated by my watchlist and special web browser extension, dope sucker. Even when you contribute on-topic, you're so meek and afraid of confrontation that you SAGE!

Alcohol inhibits testosterone production and application, and beer is a pytoestrogen. If I had made the comment more aggressively, you would have done what you always do and type "HUUR DUUR JUST LIFT BRO STOP FEELING GOOD BRO" in that exact fashion. The guy implied he wanted to ease off of booze and I gave him an honest answer. All you did is shit your ass and cry tears like a lousy succubus who just got her feelings hurt by a boot that just kicked her in the face.

Truth is, beer and drugs are for females and you're a 330 pound bisexual without enough testosterone to encourage you to type more than 2 words and a letter. If I didn't know any better, I'd also say that you're circumcized.


Seconding this question. The only thing that's worked for me is cannabis, but I haven't tried any psychs yet, so I can't vouch for their efficacy.


Anybody have a favorite drug for reading books on? I love kratom with coffee; anything else is too distracting


Recently I learned that my mom used to used Clonazepam. I found a small vial of 1mg Clonazepam tablets that expired like 5 years ago.

I used just one tablet, let it dissolve under my tongue, thinking "benzos are supposed to be sedating, right, so I'll just let it help me take a nap". But within half an hour I had urges to just… do things that I wanted to do. And this is hard to explain but usually I am overcome with fear and that blocks me from doing anything I want to do. Ever.

But that blockade was gone. "I would like to listen to music or do my household chores that are piling up or play with my cat… well, why aren't I doing that?" I got out of bed and just began doing these things and enjoying them.
I was able to answer my phone for the first time in years. It was just a telemarketer but still. I checked old emails I put off checking for months. When my mom got out of bed and I began helping her use the toilet and taking care of her, I was able to just talk about random things with her rather than be in awkward silence.

I walked outside to put my trash out to the curb. This was the first time in my entire life that I saw the color of my neighbor's roof across the street. Because for the 20 years I've lived here, EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. that I walk outside, I instinctively look at the ground and try to pretend everyone and everything around me doesn't exist.

Every day I took one tablet and it's like, I finally had a small opportunity to experience what life might be like for people who aren't crippingly terrified of the world. It's so unfair. For almost 30 years there has been some evil force inside of my brain acting as a barrier. But there were only like 5 tablets and now they're gone and now I'm back behind that evil barrier.

I don't have a "family doctor" or a "primary care doctor". I don't have a therapist or psychiatrist or social worker. I can't just tell my mom that I stole her ancient prescribed pills that she has no memory of anymore. I have no money. I have no insurance. I have nothing to sell. I can't get a job with this evil barrier I described. I very very briefly experienced a life where I could just live a life not ruled by constant overwhelming terror and now I can never have it back. But I will always know it exists, taunting me. Anyone know how to fix this?

You wake up tomorrow and find that you are omnipotent. You can do anything you want to. How would you use that power? Would you use it responsibly, for the sake of others? Or selfishly, for yourself? Would you create a new world? Would you erase all existence? Would you be the tyrant of the universe?

To be honest I'd probably go around killing and torturing people in various ways, from house to house all over the Earth. Yeah, I'm an edgelord, whatever.

You are right. This is the "healthiest" I've been physically in more than half a decade, I think.
It's still not enough. But if I am being completely honest with myself there are still some more things I can force myself to do.
Though I feel like it won't be enough.

Do I have to go full jocko willink huberman green juice wake up at 4 am, eat raw onions and eggs, cold showers, ice baths, sauna, kettlebell, meme herb, wim hoff huffing and puffing, FIR balls, raw liver and heart, nocoom, sunlight in eyes 1 minute after waking up, power pose, 0 screens 8 hours before bed, standing desk walking all day, meditation, TM, IF, just to be a baseline human?

Maybe. It is what it is


>How would you use that power?
I would probably do jack shit, nerf myself for a few things like videogames because otherwise it would be too boring, just do stuff to be comfortable, not having to work and shit.
>Would you use it responsibly, for the sake of others?
Probably, but I won't just go around solving everyone's problems because some people don't deserve it.
>Or selfishly, for yourself?
A bit, yeah
>Would you create a new world? Would you erase all existence?
Not all of it
>Would you be the tyrant of the universe?
No, no one would know about me and I would only intervine in fucked up cases


I took one look at Jocko's podcast and was like, this guy's a fucking moron why would I waste my time listening to a jarhead. I know this is a joke and Huberman doesn't know how to do tl;dr either but some of it is good advice


>wim hoff huffing and puffing

i've done it regularly for a while.

now i am low energy in comparison, scratch my head and wonder why i don't do the wim hof breathing anymore. my breathing is bad atm.


Government are already way ahead of you with their digital money.

in ~2 hours there is going to be a debate between two people i consider interesting livestreamed to youtube, maybe some wizards want to hang out and watch it? here is the link:


dude on the left might be most cancelled dude ever: he used to be gay, now he is very christian and celibate. he is still active in political drama and is currently building a clinic where he wants to offer electroshocking therapy to people who are tired of being homosexuals.

the dude on the right i don't know as much about but he is respected by the allmighty Louis Rossmann who fights for the right to repair. the other thing i know about him is that he has at least some professional starcraft background. being able to play starcraft competitively to me is a guarantee for someone who knows how to use his brain.

i would expect a more conservative leaning christian to be systematic, logical and maybe even somewhat robotic. i would expect a more liberal atheist to be more creatively expressive and concerned with humor. i guess they both defy my expectations which is why i hope this debate might be worth the time.

>about how everyone needs

because you are trivial, you act like i switched on a siren and woke people up in the middle of the night screaming about an emergency; just so you have an excuse of being outraged, the only emotion your acting teacher has taught you so far. nobody needed to do anything. this was a perfectly innocent thread where i invited the wizards to join in watching this event. i didn't invite you. you have no time to post here, you have to attend a much more pressing issue: the searching for your lost dignity.


you invited anyone and everyone to comment by making the thread. make your own fucking website if you only want posters who blow hot air up your gaped asshole. plus, i have a lot more dignity than some actual retard who lives vicariously through e-celebs.

you arent even dignified enough to be called human. you are an autistic animal. i cant imagine STILL following some literal faggot who got famous off gamergate years after the fact. this shit is sadder than the peterson and zizek debate, which already consisted of two pop "pundits" with nothing novel to add to the conversation. a gamergate figurehead and a career twitch streamer. just WOW.


The event is over and there's nothing but fighting and trolling going on here so I've ordered my assistant to move this thread to /b/.


Moved to >>>/b/912125.


Moved to >>>/b/912196.

I wonder how wizards dress, I take model off manga characters. yeah I know it sucks but I lile how they dress
6 posts and 4 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


wizards who dress themselves nice for the ladies, in the year in which the perfidious traitor cripplekike was cast out + 10


I just dress basic and clean, I like wearing stuff that matches together and fits me but I don't like standing out with flashy colors or special clothes. The way I dress is pretty much the same way as I live.


as an artist the idea of fashion is interesting to me, i like thinking about fashion trends and how they change. that being said, its a rich mans game, also only normal fags care about what others think of them, i just dress to be comfy


does anyone else here like wearing tacky graphic tshirts? I can't resist wearing tshirts that have childrens designs and cartoon characters on them, it makes me feel based like I'm saying "fuck you" to all the tight necked normalfags that laugh at people who dont spend an hour getting dressed every morning


I've been wearing all black lately because I need black shirts to hide the sweat and my blue jeans got holes in them so all I have left are black sweatpants. I like it better with blue jeans. I've been meaning to buy a new pair now for a few years but I haven't gotten around to it.

I was asked about my talents in a therapy session and being a loser I said "none" and they said everyone has a talent and while I disagree it made me think a bit more about it and pretty much the only thing that stands out is that years of solitude developed my self-awareness.

Also being a loser made me open minded, empathetic and hard to offend. Some people if you say the wrong thing they stop talking to you like you failed the dialogue in a video game.

But so far these "skills" only crippled me. My self-awareness is like bloatware that is wasting my processing power by adding unnecessary thoughts to everything. It's paralyzing me as I try to predict how me and my actions might be perceived instead of just acting.

Empathy I feel like is just counter-productive as it makes it harder to focus on furthering your interests ignoring others.

And my openness leads to me having a complex world view that again feels crippling because simplicity makes acting easier.

So if these things can even be called "skills" is there a practical way to use them?


Yes. ;D


Some of these traits can be useful if applied correctly. But you probably won't find your skills in those things. You need to look into your hobbys. What hobbys you have?


I don't know. I really do not know what to do. Should I get into IT or become an artist? very difficult decision.
6 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


You should pick something more obscure, some sort of engineering. Thermal, acoustical, civil, systems, mining, agricultural, textile, marine etc. engineering.


Depends on your goals. Which one are you better at?


no I dont


I had the same problem and decided my interest in IT was mostly superficial. I'm much happier now that I don't think about that shit


IT is suffering. Had a kms friend who kms after basically failing his way through a big name IT degree because it was just all bullshit and he was way more capable at it. So don't throw money at a fancy degree or a bunch of certs if you already know it's an iffy bet.

But if it gets you in the door to start shovelling shit then welcome to the club. Maybe you'll figure out something different or better along the way, or your job will pay for you to get another piece of fancy paper or whatever.

I have realised life is limited: time is limited, youthfulness is limited, resources such as calories consumed and expended, money, general resources, KM transversed are ALL limited and their number is even pre-determined.
I thus want to focus mostly of religion but catholicism is a heavily socialised activity: group rosary, parish activities, going to different churches to achieve more than one mass a day.
what do I do? how do I sort out my sphagetti dropping to properly live my religion as my heart calls me to do?

Because like OP, life is about managing our limited resources. Once you realize you cannot spread your resources thin across a myriad of many little things you understand the only way of getting seriously good at something is by devouting your life to it.


During confession you don't need to go into details and you just say which sins you have committed without having to explain why or how. Theres also the old saying that a priest has heard it all already.

The priest is a faithful man and won't be affected by any personal judgements or superficial thinking and the exchanged words between him and you serve a spiritual purpose and are not a social interaction.


there is also "dont put all your eggs in one basket" and having a diversified portfolio so if you fail in one area, you might find success in another


I've read in some places that you are supposed to be detailed and the Priest is supposed to interrogate you. It's about getting to the source of the sin, not just a bureacratic checklist. Almost like therapy.

But IDK I read it 2nd hand. If that is your personal actual experience, maybe I'm wrong.

There is such a huge gap between converts coming to it all from theory, and cradle Catholics who know this all from childhood.


You can also look it up online, a lot of people ask this question because they are nervous about it.

It's all based on a process as well, you're gonna address the lord then list your sins (ex. dishonesty, anger, hostility, drunkenness) then pray with the priest etc. it's not like a scientology weirdo interrogation thing.


aka the inability to feel pleasure from ejaculation/orgasm. I'm curious if anyone else here has this. Generally it's caused by anti-depressants but I've had it my entire life.

My addiction was so severe that I had strong urges to watch porn whenever I randomly stumbled upon something lewd and this way I also wasted time and it kept interfering with the things I was doing. I watched so much porn and I wish I could just delete all of that from my memory.

I used to go on masturbation and porn binges as well, the impulses were really strong and I kept doing it even when my member started to get weird and I'm glad I never damaged my dick completely.

My porn addiction started when I was in my early teens and then it just stayed with me for over a decade. It feels like I'm one of those heroin junkies who's life went downhill once they got in touch with drugs at a very young age because seeing porn at that age really did something with me and I just know it's one of the things in life that did the most damage to me.


I apologize for being ignorant on this, but I literally _can't_ masturbate after I've already masturbated in a day. That sounds like some kind of hell.


my toenails are too long


I heard of cases where men stop experiencing pleasure from ejaculation after years of smoking weed.


A lot of stoners complain about ED and a lack of libido
