Got banned from 4chan for "violating US law" because I jokingly said I wanted to find a succubus who'd deepthroat me until she choked to death on my dick. Didn't know joking about killing people was illegal, but eh, guess I'm here now for a month until my ban expires.
Look forward to getting to know you all.

started eating cucumber and hummus. been doing this for a few weeks. it is a nice way to eat cucumber. just eating a raw cucumber can be a bit boring as a meal and dipping the cucumber in a little bit of hot hummus makes the meal more exciting.

other then being a bit boring the cucumber is an excellent food. mostly water, but i think my body especially likes this kind of water more then tapwater. the cucumber basically melts into the body. when i chew the cucumber and swallow the bite, the act of swallowing is completely effortless because the cucumber is so juicy, swallowing cucumber feels like going down waterslide.

lol and when i go pooping from it, the bathrooms smells like hummus. doesn't even have the nasty shit smell at all, it just smells like someone is making fresh hummus from cooked chickpeas.

i always get the long salad cucumbers, never dared to buy any other kind other then the ones who are sold in glasses inside some liquid.

>maybe you live someplace with a different economic incentivization
Most certainly.
If you ignore micro nutrients and just focus on calories per a dollar, snack cakes are the most cost efficient ready to eat food, just slightly behind peanut butter.
While food that must be cooked/prepared it's bleached white enriched flour.

Thankfully I don't have to pinch pennies and count calories that closely anymore where that even matters.

As for the price of veg compared to meat, the price of meat here is relatively cheap and the price of produces are kinda high even for the low grade stuff. It often comes out to cost around the same for fresh produces per a serving as it does for meat, but the nutrient density is so much higher and you get so much bang for your buck. That said, I don't eat a lot of red meat due to it costing more then poultry and fish. Plus I like fish more then I like beef or pork. Kind of indifferent towards chicken these days.

Certain produces are cost efferent but they technically aren't vegetables, like potatoes and carrots. Having a good amount of calories and plenty of vitamins and minerals but relatively low cost.
Meanwhile a head of lettuce has almost no calories, few micro-nutrients, and a head of it cost as much as half a pound of ham or turkey.

a GSI plate cup bowl KFS, a microwave a succubus gave me (and still gripes about it) that will cook a full size chicken, a new battery powered can opener that works when it wants to, a 32 oz beer glass for the rare beer/soda,
blood sacrifice (JK!), thats pretty much it …
kitty has her bowl and scoop/scraper.
as with everything else KISS is the prevailing motivation.
as for the comestibles, i think we will leave that for another thread…

Got any new gear to talk about? Let's discuss.

I'll start with a new pair of earbuds I got that have Active Noise Cancellation. They sound pretty damn well and the ANC on them work well enough to where I can stay within my own thoughts and not have to hear the asinine sounds of the world whenever I need to be out and about.

My only gripe with them is that with ANC on the battery life takes a nose dive so I can't use them all the time with ANC on, but still even with ANC on it's quite an escape and a damn good experience.

I recently upgraded to wireless headphones too. I got the cheapest pair that matched all of my criteria (6h+ battery life, waterproof, ANC, okay sound quality). They cost about €65 and I really like them. They're much more convenient than wired earphones, mine sound better than my old ones, and the ANC is really amazing, the traffic mode kills road sounds by like 90%, and another mode stop wind sounds when cycling, so no longer do I have to turn up my podcasts super loud because of wind or rumbling cars

Not really true. Normies without anonymity just parrot whatever the group that they value considers the right opinion over and over. Imageboards have the potential for people to be as honest as they can or as disingenuous as they want.

Do you know why we have this philosophy of 'better safe than sorry'? Why do we tend to err on the side of caution rather than doing whatever we want whenever we want? Is this an instinctual part of our nature, or something learned over thousands of generations? Or maybe it's just human nature - I dunno. But here's my theory:
We're afraid of death. That's probably true. And yet, once we realize that death is inevitable, it ceases to frighten us anymore. Because we already knew that sooner or later we'll cease to exist. What remains frightening is dying, and we fear dying because when we die, we lose everything that matters to us. Our memories, our loved ones, our possessions…they're gone forever. We can't bring them back. Unless we reincarnate or something, they won't come back. And if they do, they won't necessarily recognize us. So losing them seems much worse than simply ceasing to exist altogether.
So, we choose to err on the side of safety. We strive towards living long lives, by protecting ourselves from threats to our existence. Which means avoiding risks. Risks entail potential problems, pain, suffering, injury…and loss. Loss of reputation, loss of material goods, loss of relationships, loss of opportunities…all kinds of losses.
But this is exactly what we were born to do. We were created to seek pleasure and pursue goals. And we can accomplish these goals through risky behavior. We can achieve fame and fortune. We can build empires. All these things involve risks. But since we value these pursuits above everything else, we accept the risks involved. After all, if we didn't accept the risks of pursuing our desires, none of these gains would be possible.
So, yeah, it's natural. The urge to live safely and prudently is deeply ingrained within us. We've evolved to crave pleasure and shun pain. Therefore, we naturally prefer to avoid risks. Because we believe they carry higher costs than benefits.
And of course, this preference is reinforced every day by society. Parents teach children the importance of safety. They warn them of dangers lurking behind each corner. They caution them against misbehaving, lest they get hurt. Children grow up believing that the world is dangerous, and behave accordingly. Adults likewise instruct their children to take precautions, and they follow suit. Society reinforces the belief that risks aren't worth taking, and therefore we refuse to take them.
Which brings us to another quPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Last time I cried last year when I was afraid of a work inspection after my co-workers scared me shitless and even told me I'd be paying out of my own pocket. My dog also died and I was unlucky to be facing the inspection - turned out fine.

Last thing tnat made me cry was reading Pet Semetery

What do wizards think of solipsism? It's a concept that the universe, as commonly defined, doesn't actually exist and that the 'world' is only real inside the wizard's mind.

I gave it some thought recently. It just occured to me that there is no obvious reason that dead matter, rearranged in a certain way, would randomly generate consciousness… The NPC'ish behavior of some people also seems to be a nice proof.
