Sorry to post this here but I don't know where else to post this and I don't want to derail any other threads. Hide the thread if this topic bothers you.

My sister is pregnant with a boy and is due in a month. When she found out it's going to be a boy I asked if she was going to circumcise and she said yes. I tried to convince her not to but she accused me of trying to "red pill" her even though I'm not even "red pilled" or anything I'm mostly apolitical. I asked her to watch american circumcision and tried explaining why circumcision is bad but she just told me to mind my business.
I don't know what to do. Normally I don't care about others but this is my nephew we're talking about. I tried talking to my father-in-law and he was more understanding but just said the decision is up to my sister and ended the conversation. Anyone have any advice? I really want to protect my future nephew from being needlessly mutilated but I feel so powerless.

Jail

Jail is a real good motivator not to commit any crimes

Like seriously,
>however if i was in solitary or had a room to myself like in norway/scandinavia jails i'd prob be go for it
USA seems horrible depending on which section you're in, strickt rules, inside politics, fuck that, i'd hate to share a cell

I'm not mentally competent so i might be sectioned in a ward which let me tell you is a nightmare

>I'm european so i'm not familiar with jails except scandinavian one's, does anyone know what it's like ?


Seems to me being a high profile offender get's you a cell alone, tv and a radio according to stuff i read (talking US) like the btk killer
Which seems odd to me, a street punk needs to share cells and buddy up get's no tv, yet a child murderer get's a fuckin tv a cell alone and a radio ?

i fell for the cs meme

i thought it was a wizard friendly job that you can just code in peace, and that stem is so in demand that they will hire just about anyone. now im in college and its easy like codings not that hard, they say if you give a bunch of monkeys a bunch of keyboards and a bunch of time they can write programs, but the problem is landing the job. you need internships and they look for gay shit like "campus involvement", so basically if you want a job/internship they need to make sure youre a party-going normalgroid and its basically there to filter out wizards. let me ask you, how the fuck is a wizard supposed to be treasurer of fagcity university party club?

Dreams are the royal road to the unconscious. They reveal our instincts, and show us that which we least want to see when we most need to see it. The symbols they generate are laden with the deepest significance we can conjure as living beings; they are ignored and misunderstood at the dreamers great peril.

Am I the only one freaked out by the U.S.'s ridiculously large prison population?

I have this irrational (?) fear that I'm going to end up in prison, basically by accident, honest mistake, or some DA or cop trying to fill a quota. When I look at the incarceration rate of the U.S., I don't think, "Look at all those criminals." I'd maybe think that if the rate wasn't the highest in the world. Instead I think, "That's so high it's basically a matter of random chance that I haven't gone to prison yet." I mean, you're basically rolling a percentile dice every year to see if you end up in jail. Whenever I make some minor mistake (forgetting to pay a fee), my paranoid brain just immediately jumps into "I'mma go to jail now" mode, I hate it.

Unable to sleep because I always have to pee

I have been peeing too much all the time from 9 years so far I Cannot ever fall sleep unless I feel my bladder is emptied I am not good at falling asleep in any event but my biggest issue appears to be that I feel I need to have emptied my bladder before I can fall asleep. This is my usual night: I will pee before bed. Then I will stay awake for half an hour and cannot fall asleep so go to the toilet and pee again. Then it will be another half an hour, etc. I will usually need to pee at least four times before I can fall asleep - sometimes more. So takes me at least an hour to fall asleep. It's only when my bladder feels totally empty do I drop off - and I can then sleep through. I am not even peeing a lot on these occasions. It's usually a small amount by the fourth occasion.
I have an overactive bladder (I don't know what is really going on medically), but I always have to pee. Always. Sometimes it is a lot, sometimes just a few drops, but always something (unless I just went 5 minutes ago). But a huge part of it is psychological. Not like I just think I need to go, I do, liquid always comes out. But the issue is my anxiety surrounding having to go. When I think I have to go, I feel anxious and incomplete, like I am not living that current moment to the fullest, since I have urine to release. It is not even a matter of holding it. I just want the sense of relief of knowing that I just emptied my bladder and now can think about other things other than the anxiety surrounding needing to go or not. This is usually manageable throughout the day, and I can hold it while in social situations or other activities so that isn't so much a problem. the PROBLEM is when I am trying to sleep. I absolutely just have to have an empty bladder when in bed. Just the tiniest sliver of pressure in my bladder is enough to keep me awake as an anxious wreck. So I always have to go just before bed. But then it gets worse. It usually takes me a while to fall asleep so a lot of the time I just stay in bed looking at my phone, and then eventually, I feel I should go again. Even if I don't feel the urge to pee, psychologically I just feel I should. And every time, a few drops come out, usually very little, but still something, and then I feel ready to fall asleep. This is a problem, because I DREAD getting out of bed to keep using the bathroom. I am sick of it, and drives me mad lying in bed wanting to sleep but knowing I have to get up in a bit to try and urinate. This also is due to my unusual fear of falling asleep. I don't understand it, but the idea of losing consciousness and entering a dream terrifies me, so sleep has always been an anxious experience for me. When I am lying in bed after first urinating, the idea that I will soon fall asleep without having gone to the restroom again causes me great anxiety, so I always feel the need to go again. It is hard to explain but I feel I need to be at absolute peace before I fall asleep, and for me, that means knowing I just emptied my bladder. So this all leaves me a terrible sleeping experience, and feeling groggy every morning.

Does anyone else experience this? Even if I don't drink much during the evening this still happens. Anyone know of anything that can help apart from not drinking anything in the evening?

The sadness of AVGN and old 90s kids

Let it first be understood that I am 34 and that yes, I am prone to nostalgia because everything is shit now. I am one of those "kids" and I'm not criticizing an unknown quantity but even myself, and even if this sounds cruel I think it is necessary. Also, this isn't directed against James himself since out of all the e-celebs, new and old, and all the youtubers out there I genuinely believe he's the only one who is genuine and never fucked up with meaningless drama, scandals, shooting cadavers in foreign countries and so on. Mike doesn't factor in on this.

I think it's really over. AVGN is dead. Nostalgia for the 90s as a whole has been run into the ground, exploited to shit and back, monetized, rebooted endlessly, vulgarized and defiled, and now all that's left is sadness and human failure. Remember those obese, bearded manchildren in Rental Reviews? It was at that point that I realized a few things which I found important and damning. I could no longer ignore them. I am not American, and to me the 90s aren't the MEDIA of the 90s but the ability to have genuine connections with people, friendships, an actual culture, meaning and purpose. To the vast majority of people however the 90s are just a series of consumer products, Hollywood garbage, plastic shit and video games. To me the 90s are me and my friends playing hide and seek, going to the beach at summer and running around in Roman and Medieval ruins with a ball and a smile. To me the 90s are my friends, the golden sun, warmth of other people - to Americans it's the glow of the TV.

I realized that there is a dissonance, a profound difference. And as I watched this endless parade of failures-to-launch, people who are utterly addicted to and nostalgic for consumer products and haven't moved an inch since then I realized I have nothing in common with them. Gradually, I began to loath them. And pity them. But mostly loathe them. I realized that we were never the same, that we have nothing in common, that even back then I wouldn't have liked them.

James Rolf, as a progenitor of a genre has run his course. There is something utterly depressing about him shilling for wallets in his videos. He and others like him are stuck doing their schtick, and what was once a genuine passion thing isn't only exhausted and the well long dry, but they can't move away from it because they've been doing it for too long and that's essentially their career. Utterly depressing! This is what the undoing of a man looks like. Look at that emptiness.

And everything zoomer and zoomer related is even worse, they themselves included. I have never thought it possible that humans could fall so low, yet here we are. I don't think there's much to do anymore. Only a global disaster, a complete destruction of everything can fix this mess. Fuck the Internet, and everything inbetween. All of this has been one huge mistake. Technology has destroyed us.

Thinking about Loona from Helluva Boss

Straight up? I think I am in love with Loona from Helluva Boss. I don't think about her sexually that much. I'd really like to show her the Brown Bunny and Weezer and she'd be like "hey thanks for introducing me to this stuff" and she'd show me the shit she listens to (probably metal which would be an interesting education as I haven't listened to much). Sometimes I like to listen to a little Pinkerton and zone out and think of her. Maybe buying ice cream. And seh'd call me retarded and we could hug and shit. Goddamn. I don't care about sex. I just want to cuddle Loona GODDAMNIT!!! This is pretty much an obsession of mine at the moment. I guess she's what normies call a comfort character? I just think of her as a waifu, not someone to have sex with. I'd really love to be in a mutually happy relationship with her. I don't know about children but if she wanted them bad enough, I'd consider. I just don't think I would really be a competent father. Sometimes I remember how out of my league she is or how badly I'd probably screw it all up. I obviously mean her wolf form. Her being disguised around me would be wrong.

How it feels to be a normalfag

You wake up one morning from the sound of coffee brewing in the kitchen. You get out of bed, take a shower, get dressed and then eat breakfast, coffee in hand. You think about work today, slightly dreading it but that's ok since your salary is about average for the typical American household, and it's a lot better than being a penniless NEET. Since you aren't married or have children, you can save a lot of money and possibly retire early.
You walk outside of your house in the suburbs since you can afford to live there and not have to rent a unit in the ghetto or live on the streets. You get inside of your car (you know that thing that costs thousands of dollars and is unattainable to most poorfags), back out of your driveway and onto the street, heading toward your comfy office job in the city nearby. You remember that you actually got that job by having a network of friends who were willing to help you out, and you also have a four year degree in computer engineering which helps a lot.
Since you can actually drive and not have to rely on public transportation, walk or ride a bike for miles on end, you arrive to work pretty quickly and without much hassle. You greet your coworkers inside and they respond with a smile. Because you aren't incredibly ugly, schizophrenic or autistic you naturally don't repel other people or cause them to treat you like dirt for simply existing.
You sit down in your desk, log into the computer and pull up a spreadsheet that a literal four year old could fill out, and begin your 8 hour, 9 to 5 day that you will later complain about online when you get back home. You're focused at the task at hand, not stopping until a few hours later, which is helped by not having a mental illness that destroys your concentration at every turn.
It's finally break time. Getting up from your chair to eat lunch with the coworkers, you can't help but feel a warm sensation in your chest.
You feel a sense of belonging.
You feel respected.
You feel connected.
You are a normalfag.

So I am tabulating the yearly costs for being a normie, and it seems like you need to earn at least $100,000 a year.

1200monthly rent
450monthly healthcare bill
100monthly internet bill
450monthly car insurance bill
40daily food cost
150Annual quarterly dentist cost
30monthly cell phone bill
500cost for a new phone
6000annual Roth IRA contribution
2500ideal PC
500replacing all tires
60bi annual oil change cost
300costs for new cloths
300cost for new suit
400eye exam and new glasses
13116yearly taxes

35000cost of a new car

The food costs seem outrageous, but if you are living in an apartment with no kitchen and work a stressful job it is beneficial to eat out every day. Some of these may only be one off costs, but they can accumulate if it happens multiple times. And of course you could probably negotiate lower prices for all these items, but that takes a lot of skill from someone with no social life and no knowledge of each of these things. Anything else here seem out of wack? In 20 years inflation will probably blow up all these values.

Misuse of Israeli Surveillance Tech for Massive Violation of Human Rights

There is a criminal organization in Brazil using NSO Group's Pegasus to infect devices for hack for hire, to incite terrorism, blackmail people, produce illegal pornography and assist in assassinations. They also have other advanced malware, like UEFI implants and even persistent implants for Kindle and Raspberry Pi. Plus face/voice recognition on every camera and microphone they can get into, in public or private places.

Brazil won't do anything to stop them. Only the FBI, CIA and NSA can stop them.

There is also the possibility that they were engaged on the hack of Bezos' smartphone.

NEET and Hikikomori General Thread


Have you had any success in trying to change your life?

>NEET


>The acronym for (Not In Education Employment Or Training)



>Hikikomori



>Hikikomori is a Japanese term when translated into English it means pulling inward being confined (Acute social withdrawal) hikikomori is a distinct psychological disorder that refers to the phenomenon of reclusive adolescents and young adults who have withdrawn from society seeking extreme degrees of isolation and confinement due to various personal social and psychological issues in their lives. (A shut-in who stays at home in their parents house does not work or go to school and lives in isolation in their bedroom for 6 months or more)



>Contrary to popular belief most hikikomori go outdoors but are just isolated socially and still spend most of the day and nearly every single day confined at home in their rooms


>The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare defines hikikomori as a condition in which the affected individuals refuse to leave their parents house, do not work or go to school and isolate themselves away from society and their family in a single room for a period exceeding six months


>The Hikikomori Criteria and Diagnosis


>1. Subject spends most of the day confined at home, nearly every single day.


>2. Subject purposefully avoids social situations and social relationships


>3. Subject shows clear significant functional impairment,


>4. Subject shows social withdrawal symptoms for .a duration of 6 months or more


>5. Subject has no physical condition nor other severe psychological problem that is the cause of the social withdrawal (Mainly excluding people with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders


>While hikikomori is mostly only a Japanese phenomenon cases of the condition have been found in other countries


People who work go to school or have a social life are not hikikomori.

I was wondering why dont us Wizards engage in esoteric discussions.

I am not talking about religion per se, nor about hollow new age pseudo-mysticism, but about the many works scattered through the course of history dealing with the inner life of man in a metaphysical sense. This also includes fiction which deals with these ideas symbolically – such as the epics Homer, revered by the Neoplatonists.

These days philosophy, the love of wisdom, seems to concern itself solely with intellectual masturbation, completely oblivious to the fact that praxis were originally an integral part of it.

I suppose atheism plays a considerable role in this line of development, especially in the academic field, where the modern notion of "progress" have arrogantly seperated us from all matters relating to divinity, considering such things as barbaric non-sense, simply because the limited apparatus of science are unable to prove such things, and that faith supposedly stands in direct opposition to reason – and so, ironically, they put their faith in the many hypotheses of science, putting their restless fear of unknowingness to a standstill, for a little while, until this or that gets debunked tomorrow and they silently invest themselfes dogmatically to a new pet theory.

Moreso, philosophy seems to have taken a course in the direction of subjective inquiry, instead of objective reality, and this further puts it away from abstract spiritual matters, and closer to a psychological, socio-political critique. While there is nothing wrong with such matters, the general consensus of philosophy seems to have grown in such a light as to have become more bitter and melancholic in recent years.

Furthermore, I believe an exclusively exoteric interpretation of myth and religion has fueled the ignorance of its followers and consequently the aversion of its adversaries. The esoteric dimension have all together been overlooked.

The whole notion of mysticism is, to many people, considered to be an import from the east, even though such matters have clearly been present in western society. The revival of platonism in the renaissance is a testimony to this, as is the influence of the alchemical tradition on art. There is also the interresting theory that Francis Bacon, a supposed initiate of the rosicrucian order, was in fact Shakespeare.

In recent years, writings pertaining to esoteric matters, whether they be magical or mystical, have shown in abudance, yet the discussion of these works seems minimal.

Instead of being drunk on my own assumptions, I thought that it would be good to sober up a little by involving other points of view.

Why is this discussion absent?

generational warfare

I remember gen xers getting along with the young millennials during early years of the internet, like in the middle of the 90s, but also early 00s, where everything was new and on its seminal stage.
I used to play a lot of online games since when I was 8 or 9, with my dad, like DAoC, Ultima and later WoW, and I was in these guilds were, I remember, there were almost no generational infights; well, youngest players were infamous for being greedy and all around cocky, but nobody referred to them as "millenials" or shit like that.

So yeah, what's up with zoomers? Why everybody hates them? Boomers, gen xers, millenials, everyone shits on Zoomers and their generation.
Personally, from time to time I feel like there's something wrong with them (I mean really fucked up sometimes) but I shrug it off thinking that's just me getting old and unfamiliar with modern subcultures.
what do you think it's actually going on these strange days?

Live-ins, roommates

Who do you live with and why? I'm sure most of us wish to live alone, or at least be unbothered by those who we share a home with, but unfortunately that's just not an option in a lot of places. Any plans to get out?
R: 30 / I: 4

something odd.

i am going to attempt writing something that has been weighing heavily on my mind for quite some time now. somehow though, every time i think about trying, the particulars of how i'm going to go about it seem to escape my mind without a trace. maybe it's my low mood and motivation, maybe it's the insufficient nature of language in terms of truly describing what i want to say. but regardless, it is difficult. i will still try, though. i've made some good progress just typing this much, so maybe this is the night.

anyways though. as i mentioned, at this point i believe language to be largely unhelpful in terms of truly putting across what i want to put across. so, i figure it would be best to start instead with a few things intended to stimulate your own mind, your own feelings, rather than the ones i impart unto you through words.

first of all, notice the image i've attached to this opening post. have you seen it before? does it make you feel anything, and if so, what? look at it for a while, immerse yourself in it, imagine you're really there. perhaps you'll feel silly doing this, but really try.

now, consider these questions:

does this so-called "reality" seem right to you? does it feel right?

are you really in the right place, at the right time?

everything that led up to this point, consider it. everything in your life, everything in this world. it had to happen, didn't it?

what year is it, what time, what date? where are you? who are you?

what does it mean? does any of it mean anything, anything at all? what does it mean to you?



well, maybe those questions seem odd, perhaps even directionless or pointless. but they must have a relevance here, otherwise i wouldn't have thought of them. right?
regardless. if you really, genuinely consider them, if you put yourself in a state of mind to do so, i believe you may come to a point where you are in some kind of place - a mental place, emotional place, spiritual place - that defies any of my explanation. but it is indeed a place, and i keep coming back to it. i keep immersing myself in it, ever since i was 8 years old i knew this place, lying on my parents bed just thinking about everything one seemingly average afternoon.

and i feel like others MUST be able to know this place, in some shape or form. it can't be exclusive to me, can it? maybe we all experience it in different ways. maybe everything i have put forth so far does nothing for you, and has failed utterly to put you in that place. but i know it's there, i've been there. and it's not so hard. maybe you've found yourself there, maybe many times, maybe you will soon. but it's there, and it is waiting always.

it seems to be some kind of place between everything, between space and time itself, between us all. something underlying, something that runs parallel to our ordinary lives but never seems to directly intersect it. "reality" can get close to this place, there are physical places or even digital places where the veil is thin, yet these places only act as sort of "jumping off points" for you to immerse yourself into this strange place, all alone. it seems to be like an ocean, or a lake. there are certain areas to be submerged in, certain depths and certain zones. but it all is a part of the same single body of liquid, you're always in the same place no matter where you are.

does that make any sense? perhaps not. truthfully, i don't know why i'm making this post. i feel i am attempting something which is futile. how can someone describe something so indescribable? i suppose it just feels too important not to try. you people of all people should be able to understand, those not so caught up in the mundane workings of "normal, everyday life". but maybe not. i just ask you to consider this vague concept, to try and connect my weak link with yours, so that maybe we have some kind of better understanding. that's my naive hope, anyway.

i don't know. what do you think?

Forging Recommendation Letters

I am going to fake my recommendation letters for graduate studies in another country. I got the letters all set and ready. I don't know signature of professors so i will just randomly sign them. The names and positions will be real but the uni i apply requires e-mail and phone to be on mail as well.

now i got three options and please show me an alternative or pick one option

a) Put professors correct contact info and hope they don't check. This is quite risky.


b) Put professors correct contact info with typos. Mails won't be sent and phones won't go through. If they realize it i will just say prof made a typo. Still risky but not as much.


c) Make my own gmail/outlook with profs name. Problem with that is that mail has no @edu prefix so they could outright reject it.

Show me the correct way please. By the way i am from a third world country applying to another third world one so chances of it getting checked are less than 0.1% however i'd still like to be on safe side.

I am from Pakistan and i am applying to universities in China and South Korea.

What makes people behave like they're the victim? I just came back from the beach after a day with my mom, aunt, uncle and their kid. In the car my uncle talked about some severe autist that got beaten badly by his father. My cousin then accused his dad of doing the same thing, but to some other random child (He's a teacher). He obviously didn't do it as he'd be fired or in jail, and then the kid admitted he just yelled at him really hard. After that, we got in the beach, we took a dive, had french fries, went for a walk and he played on the dunes. Obviously he got full of sand, so his father wiped him out with a towel. He did it joking that he was now beating a kid. My cousin accused his father of actually doing it, and cried all the way back. Not just him, I had a friend that said he was oppressed by his parents, because he had a nice, well paying job on his field right after graduation on the family's office. Why do some act like they have a shitty live? Attention? Pity?

giving up everything for(literally)dreams

I have decided I will start a comprehensive life regime for the only valid experience I have left:dreams. i dont mean "dreams" as in travelling the world,etc, but the brain state known as dreams.im keenly interested in lucid dreams too. Here is what my regime would look like in its peak

A polyphasic regime. It would multiply the chances or the actual success ,of having different dreams within each 24 hours period
Breath retention.It would make me requires LESS sleep(more on this below)
sleeping sitting down on a chair. LESS sleep,too.also it tricks the ears center of balance into thinking you're awake:a good cheat for lucidity
REM rebound:the 3 times i mentioned less sleep needed was all for this;science has proven less sleep equals more dreams.

I would probably need 1-3 months to adapt,but,hey,what better thing do I have to do?

bonus aids:
>melatonin pills, bananas,some form of fasting,sleeping with the windows open(its more healthy)

I hate social media

I have never been a fan of social media websites. The entire premise of social media exists just to appeal to narcissists while they share so much private info about their lives to make tech companies billions of dollars in the process.
I especially hate the "newer" social media sites: TikTok, Instagram and also Twitter although it's been out since 2006.

I never understood TikTok. Seems like a dumbed down version of YouTube with significantly less functionality and usefulness.
The videos lack proper playback control and don't have an interface to forward or rewind vids. You can only watch in 1 direction from start to finish.
The max video length used to be 15 seconds, but now it's changed so videos can be up to 1 minute long.
Yet for some reason it is getting so popular. I guess it's because it appeals to the lowest common denominator: the ADD generation and attention whore zoomers that want to zip through everything quickly without taking the time to watch a long video or read a long post.

Same problem with Instagram. You just post photos of yourself and that's it. It's like Facebook Lite. The narcissists and attention whores felt like facebook has too much clutter and not enough emphasis on the photos of a certain individual.
Along comes Instagram. No focus on anything other than your stupid fucking face. "Hey everyone pay attention to me. Haha look at me in my yoga pants. Pay attention to my ass. I have a boyfriend/husband but I still need strangers online to focus on my body."

Similar situation with Twitter. With such a short character limit, users can only type out a few sentences before needing to make an entirely new tweet. Sad how people don't have the attention span to read a paragraph or more.
Instead they would rather type out low effort one liners. A single full post on wizchan would take 8 or more tweets to write out.
They think they are witty for copy and pasting the same remark a million times over or posting some dumb meme someone else made instead of being original.

Humanity is terrible. They've made this awful society and with it, websites that get progressively worse to cater to this scumbag species.

My family just sees me as mentally ill- They think I have serious mental problems and I do but it does not bother me as I can be NEEt easier (get wizbucks anyway).

Does your family see you as mentally ill?

Love Doll Thread

Alright lads,

as I promised a few months back. I'm finally making this thread for anyone interested.

So I got my silicone wife back in August. She's been with me for a couple of months now. Honestly, I do not regret it one bit. She's adorable. I love sleeping next to her, even though I have a tiny bed and it's not the comfiest.

Surprisingly I don't tend to fuck her that much though. It's very noisy and logistically difficult to realize, because you have to move her around, position her, then clean up etc… And considering I live in a tiny apartment together with my mom, I can only do it when she's out and that happens very rarely. So I usually just use her legs to cum or fap touching her and cuddling. I also had to use a silicone glue for her privates, because I managed to rip them, so that also makes me more reluctant.


It would be so great if I lived alone and didn't have to have her hidden away all day, because she's really pretty and I like looking at her, but it's too awkward & cringe with my mom around, so I just have her tucked in my bed with a blanket on top.

The only con I can think of is that she's cold, so when I do have sex with her, I do so with her being clothed, because it's weird feeling a cold body pressed against you, it feels kind of like a corpse and I'm not into that.

If there is anything you'd like to know please ask. If you have a doll of your own - please share any thoughts, experiences, tips and of course pictures!

Personal Identity

How do you think about yourself? Other than wizard or NEET. After years of being a NEET I'm basically a blank slate. I assume most people think of themselves in terms of what their occupation or hobby is, like "I'm a teacher" "I'm a student" or "I'm a surfer". Being a NEET that doesn't really apply because you don't have a certain task to occupy your time.

People also seem to identify with certain personality traits they have. Because I almost never interact with people outside of sometimes posting on imageboards I don't really have a good idea of my personality qualities either. I've spent most of my time depressed doing nothing, or just trying to kill time, or myself. Now I feel like I'm basically just a collection of random facts I've read online or in books, and media I've consumed. If someone asked me to describe myself I don't know if I could besides listing my physical attributes.

behind in university

Anyone else in university but really behind?

I did good in my first semester of university, but got really depressed the next semester and ended up dropping all my courses to watch anime and play WoW 24/7.

This ended up continuing to my next semester, and one more semester later because I forgot how to concentrate. Ended up getting diagnosed with ADHD and was present since I was a kid but parents didn't want to do anything about it.

My dad pays for my rent and food and he pity's me now, not even angry that I waste his money to do nothing because he sees that I have nothing or no one. It is kind of sad, because my dad has to sometimes go out of his way to get me to do stuff. He tried to reach out to my cousin to ask him to help me get an internship, and I just ignored my cousin because I dislike conversing with him (he is a successful engineer and is rich).

I am $25k in debt right now, and will probably be ~$55k in debt when I finish my college degree.

I enjoy learning for the most part, but hate online learning and a lot of the professors (50-60 middle eastern guys who don't know how to use technology despite their career being based on it).

I consider dropping out a lot because I get a lot of stress from thinking about how I am so behind and how employers will question my empty job experience (i only worked one job as a technical support person, but ended up quitting after a month and a half because I couldn't handle dealing with other people).

Hey Wizards, who else feels drawn to a certain type of aesthetic? Or feels at home with one? I feel like some places online and in real life give off this vibe of being gateways, or liminal spaces at the entrance of a sort of parallel realm that comprises an aesthetic.

Sorry if this thread is only for visual stuff but this is an aesthetic I really like and wish I knew words to describe it that would lead me to finding more. I think "phantasmagoria" is a good word for it but nobody uses it that way. Fanged Noumena by Nick Land has a lot of it. Basically the aesthetic is methed out dreamlike mania. A lot of cyberpunk stuff is like this when it's not just doing the neo noir thing.

Here's a song that kind of has the aesthetic CCRU stuff.
have you noticed how a lot of contemporary subculture is the same manic schizophrenia, endless mix of high and low brow references, self-indulgent obscurantism, but stripped of the paranoic, edgy, apocalyptic vibe present in the 90s

Anti alt-right undercover agents

Why does Brittany Venti employ 2 government agents (Emprahh1 and Maeruyo) as editors and moderators?

Emprah is even legit-to-god Jewish. Isn't Venti supposed to be alt-right? What's a $138k a year military contractor working for the UK government as an intelligence analyst doing going to alt-right political rallies around the world?

Against Schools

Pic related is John Taylor Gatto, he was a teacher and then wrote a bunch of books about the history of public education and how awful school is. A lot of people today talk about increasing education, more people going to college, etc, but after studying some of the history of public schooling and thinking about my own experiences I'm starting to think school is mostly a bad thing. We spend most of our youth in these terrible institutions where we learn almost nothing. Almost all kids in school don't want to be there and would learn more useful things and be happier doing things out in the world. The history of schools is also very fucked up and basically they were just created because the wealthy factory owners didn't want a bunch of poor illiterate people causing problems.

If you look at the job market today, most people's job's have nothing to do with what they study in school, and could probably better off be learned by some kind of on the job training or apprenticeship. I think universities should still exist for the sciences, but should be much smaller and not a requirement to get some office job copying things from one database to another.

What do you wizards think about school?

Lost Boards

Can anyone else remember/link to other imageboards that have come and gone or did I imagine them. I genuinely do not know if Mugichan was real or not anymore and I remember there was another liveboard which was only online for 2 hours every 12 hours were everyone posted one anime character that was called something to do with tea.
If anyone else can remember these or has any archives/screencaps or links I would glad appreciate them. The years are a blur and i want to know if they were atleast real or not.

Website tutorial

How can I start up a website. I know how to get a domain but I heard you need a 'server' (which from what I have researched, is basically hard-drives/a PC tower that your website is connected to) for it to work, in that case where can I buy on or the parts to make one.
ALso what programming language should I learn to make one? javascript, html…

Online jobs, international jobs

Does anybody work online, or have in the past? Could you point something that may hire me? I've become interested on this kind of work because it usually pays in dollars and I don't have to leave the house, so really any international job will pay more than the $1 an hour that I currently make on 3rd world slavery.

Do you have eyestrain? Do you have headache from staring at the PC all day?

I remember I never had such problems when I was younger but the older I get the worst it's becoming. Blurriness, headaches and nausea became routine.

Black Wizards?

I am a black wizard apprentice from Atlanta. While I am tall and somewhat attractive, I have zero interest in interacting with a succubus. I am also autistic, and having one of my special interests be hip hop allowed for me to be at least somewhat socially capable when I needed to be. If I had to make small talk with another black male, I could just go on about the production techniques of Atlanta Trap vs Chicago Drill. and they would be interested enough. I never really had an interest in succubi, nor could connect with anyone around me, causing me to spend most of my time as alone as possible.

I'm just wondering is there any other black wizards/wizards apprentices on here? I know our culture sucks and we're loud and annoying, but there's some of us out there.

Pic unrelated, just something I drew up.
