what's that feeling I get sometimes where I wish I was born in america and be american, living in a american house and doing nothing all day but playing old video games, eating fastfood. this feeling gets me when the day is warm or I hear a relaxing song, or sometiles when I think about america

USA is the most normie country in the world, therefore OP is ultra normie.

i don't understand how living in a country full of extroverts is good for the average wiz.


you don't understand it at all


you guys are focusing on the content of his feeling, what the feeling is in relation to, rather than looking at the actual feeling itself. ie instead of understanding hunger you talk about wanting fast food, mcdonalds, how many burgers you could eat

this is the closest word we have for the feeling, if we can borrow words from other languages >>300297


Only because those areas were already adjacent to places like L.A, Vegas, Phoenix, and places that have been settled from a time when it was prudent to have a town every 20 or so miles along a commonly traveled path, because it was about a day's travel by foot or wagon.
Many of those are now either ghost towns or mere hamlets.


I'm probably one of the few people who actually like american globalism despite its flaws. I'm not talking about mcdonald's or burger king first of all but about the capitalist feeling of liberty and how the USA mixes it with patriotism nicely. And the aesthetics and entertainment is what I refer to, also. Thanks to american globalism I could grow up watching Terminator 2 and Tim Burton's Batman movies on VHS for example. And thanks to globalism generally I could spend my teenage years reading weird yet interesting visual novels or watching anime and those things defined my personality too.

Without american culture and globalism my childhood and teenage years would have been so boring. My country simply doesn't have good or exciting escapism, it's always the classics from the 19th century getting remade ad infinitum and some half-assed attempts at trying to emulate western or eastern entertainment (and failing miserably at it).

As a NEET who spends most of his time watching movies or playing games I don't have a problem with globalism.
Back to capitalism and globalism, many people cry about it but when you compare it to the alternatives (nazi Germany and Soviet Union) I can say confidently that the best side won in WW2. I think many americans here don't appreciate their country because they are used to it and can't imagine what it would be like to live in some totalitarian or even semi-fascist/communist banana republic. They take freedom as something granted when it really isn't like that.
I also don't have a problem with a "single world language" like english. It makes things easier since everyone speaks english basically and you can find english translations for almost everything.

Internet back then:
>Hundreds of forums, chats, websites and different communities with their own character
>Every day new content, new stories, new people
Internet now:
>Three or four sites all repeating the same memes, jokes and content. Big imageboards are dead, small communities dissapeared, no fansites anymore
>The same people, the same low quality content, nobody wants to do anything

When everything went SO wrong. Is like a NIGHTMARE.

What a boring person you are.


Internet culture ate itself. There was a rise of a new public sphere based around consuming/mocking sincere communities for entertainment, combining with the growing pseudo-anonymous social media with massive audiences.
Imageboards degenerated internet culture enough that by the time the real world and internet fully unified, the masses of Normans weren’t that different from internet culture.
Also there was limited entertainment, there was no constant pervasive video entertainment in the background. image hosting was even frustrating - mid to late 2000s Reddit top voted image posts would be hosted on sites that had view limits, so the comments would be all posting mirrors - 4chan was legitimately weird in it’s heavy use of images vs occasional forum threads. waiting to torrent shit, even voice chat was limited and paid for.
The temptation of easy and constant multimedia wasn’t there, so this modern malaise of constantly consuming and shitposting didn’t exist in the same way by limitation.


>here was a rise of a new public sphere based around consuming/mocking sincere communities for entertainment
Agree. "Ironic" shitposters are one of the worst groups on the Internet and you don't want them in any community.


Any community that act like retard will bring real retards since they will feel at home. "Ironic" shitposters are the ones acting like retards.


Fuck you Sayaka, you did everything wrong and Kyoko was too good for you character development my fucking ass

the idea is to basically make a map lile seen in red in pic related called neo-tokyo



you typically create a map for your videogame using the same game engine you're using to write the code and everything else. the map is really just a collection of 3d assets placed via the editor for your game engine. game engines you can use for 3d include unity, unreal engine, godot, among others. 2d options are basically same, but there are also tons of smaller game engines. there's also special game engines for stuff like doom-likes, roguelikes, rts games, and so on

you can also use games that include map editors to create your map within an existing game. things like valve hammer map editor for source engine mods, warcraft 3 map editor. secondlife is a 3d social mmo that includes 3d building, scripting, land management… you can basically buy virtual land in that game, terraform the land, then build the map

there is no further information to give, without you explaining your game more, but even then you are better off figuring it out on your own


i remember this


I love the ost in that game.

why are we virgin?

it appears to be such a unique thing to be in life. I have never met such person in my life except on the internet. what causes this? psychological problems? extremely repelling physical appearance? no one is without any personality issues but never really anyone without any sexual experience, especially after a certain age. you come across actual schizophrenics, unemployed, homeless, crippled but I never met anyone who's virgin. of course it's not something you can just ask to anyone and get answers but anyone I've met and got close in time always at one point or another at least hinted at the act of doing. and of course there are always people who pay for sex too. so what is the deal with us? not only I don't exist for the opposite sex, despite having natural reproductive urges, very potent at times I somehow ended up where I'm at life with absolute zero sexual experience and I feel like that's the case for a lot of other people. how come?

You don't have to
You just gotta be a real bullshitter, that's all there is to it.
Even so called "top men" get taken advantage of


I don't think you read my post.


That picture is so dumb and was definitely made by someone who doesn't know anything about Christianity. Reddit tier smartass stuff.

No one denies that human beings have temptations and passions but its all about battling and struggling against them so to even ask something like that has no purpose at all. There's even a lot of saints who had struggles with lust but that doesn't mean that they gave into their temptations unlike the idiot who asked that question who is most likely behaving like complete reddit atheist type degenerate. To ask a question like that is indeed disrespectful since the sole purpose of it is to lash at Christians but its also a completely pointless question as well, it's like asking a color blind guy what his favorite color is.


as christian volcels we need to arm ourselves in the war of temptations, by knowing what was more powerful at tempting our Savior. then we can shield ourselves against demoness succubi

good evening wizards. motivation has stuck me and i am trying to find out which video platforms i like. maybe to upload videos that nobody cares about or livestream. i'm just trying to understand what is out there.

i'm collecting info into a spreadsheet in calc (the libreoffice variant of excel) and i am trying to complete it. it was more elaborate and general at first but to actually complete it i made it more simplistic and personal. i know myself and often like to start things like that and not finish them so i try to keep this simple so i have a fighting chance to finish this.

if you have any helpful information, opinion, feeling or intuition about any or all of these places, please do share as you might help me or others who are just as overwhelmed by the situation as i am. there are probably good ones i have not even heard about.

i've only uploaded to youtube and odysee, for a few others i made research accounts already in an earlier attempt to do this research.

Here is a list of the current platforms i am looking at so far:

i'll continue exploring plattforms soon, not much progress on that front. currently trying to find out what kind of video editing tutorials are available.

most seem to be belonging to a certain software. some are just general tips but i suspect those are corrupted by goal orientation as in maximizing views or profit or adhering to marketing priciples.

i'm looking for something where video editing is explored without such ideological burdens.

i'm looking for the exact opposite of "10 ways how you can use video editing to get more subscribers now"

when i try to exclude unattractive programs from the search in youtube with the minus, it ONLY shows me videos i tried to hide.

i guess the feature was too useful for people and in the effort to show people what they don't want (that's called marketing) they took the feature out.

too bad. i wanted to just search for videos and then bit by bit exclude all the shit i don't want and potentially leave me with videos that i would like.

found one more video i wish i could do but this probably requires an advanced program.


Reminds me of this gem. IDK if this will display or not. First time trying to embed something on wizchan.


heh the combination of this soulless professional mouthpiece of curroption in suit and tie and this mouth expressing the words of a child is well memed.

I can't understand how trash like Discord greatly replaced old forums and chats.

The format just sucks so much, more than half of users are underages, and nothing interesting ever happens like in those old stories about 4chan trolling.

The worst part of it all is that trash has killed sites that existed previously like 4chan because the cliques that form around there end up leaking their shitty behaviour outside.

Dude ever KF thread I've read has been well deserved, and they are a radical minority. No one is making KF threads about people forming small communities unless they're trannies or otherwise crazy acting




>you'll never accomplish anything
you don't use discord so what have you accomplished?


discord fucking sucks

i have one to keep in contact with my brother. occasionally i find a channel and join it and i am reminded i always hated instant chats and chatrooms. fucking homo gay shit

ive joinermd maybe a dozen discord channels focused on specific topics and 50% of the time some ppl form a group and just treat it as their public hangout. 25% of the time i cannot get any help, they are all idiots. the other 25% im ignored

its like reddit on steroids, but bevause they are chatrooms, there arent even pages indexed via search engines. reddit at least has useful stuff archived that is searchable via google. discord? fucking nothing, it is an intellectual blackhole


Discord is really good for porn and ERP, in all honesty.

Wizards, I need your knowledge and wisdom. I'm trying to change my sleeping habits, I have severe sleep problems, one of the reasons are my allergies, but other reason I suspect is a sleep disorder, like delayed sleep phase disorder. The perspective im taking is to reconsider every aspect of sleep, and i started to question if a spring mattress is the best choice.

I started to research on the bed choices of societies that weren't influenced by western customs, and the bed solutions previous to modern mattress in older civilizations. The information is practically non existant, theres no research on mattress technology, and the mattress industry is prone to put misinformation (you can check this out just by googling it)


So i want to make this thread to share information and learn if you want to contribute with your knowledge or experiences. I will go updating with more information on the thread as time passes.

The only and first thing you will find out there, is this article writen by physiotherapist Michael Tetley, "Instinctive sleeping and resting postures: an anthropological and zoological approach to treatment of low back and joint pain", where he says that a hard flat surface or the floor are the best resting locations for humans. He concludes this after studying various cultures around the world. The article doesn't have scientific rigour, its mainly the experiences and observations of this doctor, and according to his story you start to doubt his integrity (the guy is blind, says he lost his vision commanding a war batallion of Kenyans) but thats other thing. I think he has a point.

I bought a glucometer some days ago, to know which foods trigger my glucose.

He has lots of fans (in original video comments) presuming about nice results, seems safe.



How is your sleep quality on flat surface vs mattress?


I agree with the spirit of this thread. Western beds are probably too soft and misalign the spine whereas harder beds prevent that. One of the unmentioned things is that your position while you sleep has an impact on the function of your glympathic system…. the optimal position supposedly is on your right side. Colder temps are good for sleep, weighted blankets are good for sleep. I'm thinking of making a tinfoil lined chamber with heavy curtains to block out light for my bed just to get the emf and light/noise disruption out. A tent would probably make a decent frame.



Yes i heard about the glymphatic system and sleep posture. You could use positional therapy to promote side sleeping.

idk i havent slept on anything else in a decade. if you mean futon mattress, i said it's about the same as floor since i put blankets underneath me when i slept on floor and the futon has shitty foam cushioning, is not meant to be a bed

biggest thing for me when sleeping is keeping my spine flat to the ground. this means i need a pillow or something under my thighs so my spine gets aligned the right way. the bottom of the spine (lumbar) doesnt make contact with the ground otherwise and feels uncomfortable. i dont know if this actually affects sleep quality, but it's impossible for me to even fall sleep on my back without it
