/skin care routine/

In this thread we discuss tips and tricks plus experiences good or bad with our skin.
>What type of skin do you have and what prob;ems do you have with it? has anything worked?
>What is your skin care regiment?
>shaving tips as well since we are men and that is skin care


I am allergic to every moisturizer in existence and it drives me up the wall because I will be dry and apply product only to find it irritating days later. Anyone have any tips?
I tried to use sunscreen as a moisturizer because I read online it can be a good choice for those of us with sensitive skin and I am waiting to see if it helps at all.

My skincare routine is to wash my face with a cleanser (soap free) and then use an every day exfoliation cream and try to limit how often I wash my face. I have OCD so I wash myself very often and it makes my skin so dry and red it is really a nightmare.

Shouldn't bother me this much, but I hate it when some epidemiologists go on about how "everyone" will get covid. They probably don't mean it literally, but such a damn normie thing to say anyway.

I never see other people and order stuff to my door. Not fear of corona, just how I live. Maybe I'll pick it up in hospital if I ever get sick or in elderly care in 50-60 years, but seems far from a given.

How do i convince my mom to let me NEET?

How can i convince my mom to let me not work and just live in some peace and quiet in my cave? How did you convince your parents to let you live with them without working anons? i have been a NEET since i was 12 because i refused to go to school after moving to some basketball american infested rat hole and being severely bullied. i snapped and quit going to school and even after moving upstate i only went to class for a season at most as a freshman and never went back for obvious reasons of not handling being around others.

My mom was patient with me and let me stay at home at first because i was getting some treatment for my anxiety PTSD and depression,not that zoloft and talking to some old succubus every week helped. i kept my mom off my back by saying i would get my GED and go to college but i never did anything obviously and she kept pressuring me to :look for work" by taking the internet away and long story short i started some job and did it for about 3 weeks and stopped going in until i got fired a month ago. The problem is my mom still wants me to work or study and i flat out refuse but have not told her yet. How can i tell her i don't want to work and to just let me live at home like i have been for years. i don't know if she would even let me try for SSI and what is the point when i probably wont get it but i can worry about all that later.

What i need to know is how the hell did you all become NEET with impunity? did you tell your parents you just wont work and they let you or something because i think my mom will let me stay NEET for a while longer and kick me out in a ear most or something despite loving me because she is a wagecuck and wants me to slave as well and be a normalfag.

Is it too late to get into college once you are 21?

Honestly I never tought I d be giving a try to my country's SAT. But now between the external pressure I've received, I had to quit my job in order to prepare myself for that test and then apply for college.

Isn't already too late for me to do that?

I also feel extremely afraid of going into those places. Will I ever finish college? Will I understand what is being teached to me?

Silence

I've found that I really, really like scenes from film and anime that employ _silence_. Either in the form of 0 tension, or literal silence, or just focusing on ambience.

I've also come to realize how rare this is. It makes me think, do normies just constantly _need_ noise or something?

Maybe "silence" isn't the right word. So, I just want to share a few of these, if you don't mind. These have always stuck with me. Maybe someone can describe better what I'm getting at and why these things stick with me so badly.

Non-depressed wizards

There are some non-depressed wizards in the house?

Existance and felings can be overwhelming for some wizards and that's fine, but I want to get a word with the wizard who are satisfied with life in general.
My future is more uncertain than ever, I have no money on me, my parents don't like me very much and I got no job on the way, but I cant stop feeling this satisfaction on being alive and be able of doing my things. Walking is great, eating is great, running is great and reading about stuff is great. Even if I am not in a great point of my life, I still feel joyful just of being here.

wax recycling

Is there any insect that can make use of wax? I have this half-burned candle, the little string is too burried to relight it.

Wondering if there are insects that could make use of candlewax. Maybe some ants would appreciate it and carry it in their structures. Maybe there are some insects that build something like a honey comb but they can't create the material and are dependant on the outside to find building material.

I can imagine melting the candle into 50 little pellets and scattering them somewhere but i wouldn't want to do it if all that did was ruin the place i scattered it.

/dit/ - Dead Internet Theory

Anyone hear of the dead/empty internet theory? For those who don't know, see pic related. The modern web is very sterile and boring compared to what it once was. Every search result and popular video is a "top 5" or "top 10", many of which are likely generated by bots as well. Search engine results are fake and inorganic due to SEO and click bots. You could be talking to one and not even know it. The OP in the pic focuses on strange phenomena on 4chan, but there's evidence of bots here and on most other sites.

How Do I crush a womans ego?

succubi have often laughed at me and mocked me, especially when they're all-together in a group. I've always wanted to respond to them in a very demeaning but overtly painful manner, but I didn't know how to respond without coming off like an emotional wreck. I remember once a cashier at a female clothing store gave me the most disgusting smile, then crudely said take care. Why are succubi so evil towards physically repulsive men, I am not even interested in a relationship but it really crushes me considering how nice they were towards me in childhood, but at the same time I always sensed the fake atmoshphere around it. many of them made many shallow comments, even ones you would assume are primarily good'natured. Nigger bitches and their half-spawn are the worst by far. Men have done it but most of them were a lot more subtle in their responses.So how I respond without coming off as being butthurt?

I remember late 2011 Skyrim and dark souls was amazing. As a kid i went outside all the time until late puberty,
i didn't like drinking and partying i gradually lost my friends because of it. So i started playing games and i'll never regret it. Now i don't play that much anymore though.

I think most people whatever they're addicted to enjoy themselves, i know about the rat study (happy people don't need addiction) but it makes sense to be addicted if your life sucks

Do you prefer 4:9 aspect ratio over 16:9?

Wide screen 16:9 aspect ratio has become the standard for TV shows including movies in most cases and if a movie is not 16:9 it is nearly always going to be a widescreen aspect ratio save for some arthouse films.

Widescreen is standardized regardless of what works best for the project and people dislike watching a square and come to expect a widescreen experience.
This is not a problem when the show/movie/anime is made to work with widescreen but this is not always the case and a lot of media is widescreen *just because* so the result is disappointing sadly.

I will not claim I prefer 4:9 in all cases but 4:9 can be much better with a different focus and less demand while viewing. Why have extra screen if you are not doing anything with it? most anime for example do nothing with their extra screen space.

Both aspect ratios have their pros and cons but people are not keeping these in mind when releasing media and the consumer is unwilling in most cases to watch squares.

What are your thoughts?

Fitness

I've decided to lose like 60 lbs. Pretty much never really tried because of the amount of time it would take, but I'm just going to not think about it and stand pretty much all day 6 days a week. Been using my standing desk more, now I'm going to try standing up ~15 hours every day. I'm going to guess I've been standing for about 8 hours most days. I was gaining weight earlier this year and I could feel it getting harder to move, I got up past 240. I think the standing desk has got me down to 235. I haven't tried to eat less or think about it at all, I ate three doughnuts the other day.

I might start wearing a weighted backpack (sand and gravel) during the day also to make bones and muscles stronger as if I were fatter.

Discovered a mystery, or I’m retarded

First post on wizchan, never been here before so bear with me.

There was a shooting recently, where a white man named Ian Cranston shot a black man for flirting with Ian’s girlfriend and for assaulting Ian. The media is spreading complete disinformation about this, of course painting the white guy as evil, but that’s not the point.

I searched YouTube for Ian Cranston and a balding dude from Oregon came up. He’s a “musician, film producer, actor, comedian”.. basically just check everything on the list. I made a comment about the shooting to him, and he deleted it and the next day posted a video saying we need to stop all this killing and stuff like that. So I know he is real, because of that video. Like, I know he is a real person.

However you can go down a strange rabbit hole by researching him. Very strange. He has a large number of projects online, movies music and all that. They feature other artists.. but when you go look up those artists, the only place they are referenced is with Ian Cranston. Maybe he’s one of those weirdos that Needs to feel famous? But it gets weirder.

https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/ian-cranston-icizzle/5f4a7ca38815453dba0d54b1

This guy is asking the same question. He is responded to by another presumably fake profile stating that Ian has a TWIN. So if he IS trying to just feel famous, or inject himself into the algorithm somehow… he’s also willing to lie. Which seems suspicious to me, considering how sane he sounded in the video he posted about the shooting. He sounded like a completely normal guy. Not retarded/autistic at all. Just a bit soyboyish.

So it gets weirder. If you look up his stuff, you will find other characters just like him. Movies, music and books that do not really exist. They are clearly creations of an algorithm. With characters and accolades that also do not exist. But I SAW this guy. I saw his very normal video yesterday.

If you can please YouTube Ian Cranston music and see if that channel is still up, and if that video about the mistaken identity is still up that would help me solve a bit of this mystery. Because the channel no longer shows up for me. Though, I think he may have just blocked me. If it’s still up though you can see for yourself how real he seems… and yet this whole algorithm completely surrounds him.

i suspected that a succubus "friend" has been pocketing $kickbacks$ by recommending me to various doctors and other evil blood suckers.
aka $4000-5000 for hearing aids which nearly got me killed (another story).
sooooo… 22+ years of meds i never needed for blood pressure that is considered 'normal'.
Thousands of $$$ for Doctor's appointments exposing me to hideous subhuman plague carriers for from every shithole on the planet.
Horrible side effects that were treated as "normal".
Medication roulette with drugs that are now being pulled from the market.
Hundreds of hours in shithole waiting rooms with the gutter filth of humanity, etc.
I had a friend do an investigation, it turns out she's been paying HER mortgage using the kickbacks from years of MY shit and misery.
i have set the bloodhounds loose on the Hoor.
i will be working to put the Hoor and the Dr's away for life.

This is not a joke, she has gained access to my bank accounts, and $30K is unaccounted for !
Everything is going on hold as of tomorrow.

i guess my first clue should have been when a part time employer of hers went to the po-po over a 'misunderstanding'.
She somehow 'walked' on that.
i have been informed that she has bought a gun, how sweet and considerate of her, not !
i got a text from her that she is coming to visit this week.

diesel heater from china

expert poverty timing has happened! i bought this diesel heater for living the glorious van life and just 3 days after i bought it, the thing became 15€ more expensive. i think a few months ago it was even cheaper.

i bought it for 165€ now is 180€. apparently during the summer they sell them for less. also there is no reason to buy this on amazon because it is only more expensive there…

apparently a lot of people swear by these china heaters and are frothing from the mouth talking about it because is so awesome. heats a lot while burning a little amount of diesel fuel. in the winter when it is almost freezing, these will make the truck warm for less then 0,1 liter of diesel per hour. that's nothing.

the price is still an absolute joke it seems and there are cheaper models and no good reason to buy my slightly upgraded version.

i have not tried it yet, will try it, not sure when but i want to continue to just park the car someplace during the day and work on the laptop and skate. very exciting technology!

Does anyone else feel that there memory is ultra crap despite being young and healthy

I feel like I have trouble remembering various things from names to even where I put something I set down a minute ago. Lately, I realized that I avoid specifics when talking simply because the proper term for something isnt encoded in my brain (IE the name of a musical artist or a certain date). Its super annoying and even when I place extra emphasis on trying to remember something, my brain seems to function counterintuitively I even forget the names of common objects and foods in my mother tongue, and only serves to make me more cognizant of the fact the information isnt there. Im only in my early 20s so I know it isnt a function of cognative decline, and I feel like I never experienced these kind of feelings when I was younger (perhaps because I was less aware?). Does anyone else feel this way?

Anyone else extremely pessimistic about climate change

We've got a very short time window until it's too late to change. The average person doesn't care about global warming because of how many personal sacrifices it'd include and how little benefit they'd get in return (in the short term).
Everybody is just sitting on their hands waiting for the magic solution to be conjured by scientists but it hasn't happened yet and there's nothing to indicate it's coming.
The planet will be uninhabitable soon, and we're in for a painful ride to that deadline.
All the signs are there that it's occurring yet it's still under debate, which makes about as much sense as debating whether or not the Holocaust happened, and it's just a thinly veiled way to push agendas.
It is without a doubt the most important issue on the table right now, and even though most people are conscious of it, they're not actually doing anything to help.

vintage expert vulgarity

i present to you this rare cultural artifact from the past. a short video. it is from a televized show from the ~late 1990s germany where people could call into the show and talk live on air.

not unlike twitch streamers who have the donation messages announced. of course people call in to troll and be mean even though the poor dude who hosts the show just wanted to talk about art on the smallest local tv channel available. mostly people calling to yell insultes but one guy calling himself king a. the a is short for the german "arschfick".

you can understand the dynamic of the interaction just from intonation, no need to understand the words or have knowledge of the language. he just yells insults and says he will cut a threading on his cock so he can do a corkscrew assfuck. grown man calling in a show proclaiming his intent to fuck everyone in the ass.

Jack the Ripper Theories

There are a bajillion comments on this already, but whatever, let me add another one to the pile. All my information on the subject pretty much only comes from the attached, and I just wanted to have some fun and play amateur Conan'O'Doyle with it. Anyone who wants to pontificate on who Jack the Ripper was feel free.

I just wanted to question John Richardson once more here. I think the video dismisses John Richardson as the prime suspect for the Annie Chapman case way too easily. He was at the scene of the crime when it happened according to one ear-witness, and his own admission/coroner reports, and he admits he had the possible murder weapon (a knife). More importantly, though, and this is what I wanted to bring up, is that his story doesn't check out.

Fact 1 - He said he trimmed some leather from his boot on the back porch stoop.
Fact 2 - They conducted a sweep of the backyard and found a lot of miscellany, but no leather trims or shavings from a boot on the stoop.

I just wanted to point this out.



Also, I just wanted to say that Charles Lechmere/Cross does sound REALLY sus. I think a more reasonable reason that Paul said, "Oh, I don't want to miss work," was because he saw Charles Cross in the act, played dumb, and didn't want Charles to fucking shank and murder him.

Dream Interpretation Thread

If you've recently, or in the past, had a dream which has stuck with you, or perhaps a recurrent dream you cannot unravel, please post it here and I will analyze it.

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.

I'm a senior in high school down in New Zealand. For those who are unfamiliar, the high school system there is 6 years of primary school, followed by another 6 years of high school (4 of which are compulsory.)

I made the stupid decision to continue on to Year 12 with the impression that everything will go on smoothly. How fucking wrong I was.

I can't do it, wizards. I'm not suicidal, never have been. But I feel an overwhelming stress flow over me with the workload and the never ending threat of 'final exams'.

Alas, I have to continue. I'm over 85% done with school and there's no point in dropping out now, and being a failure (even though I already feel like one.) The best options is to tank my exams (not intentionally, but the work is very confusing) and get the handshake and piece of crummy paper telling me that I suffered through a year of exams, 'study, study, study', and other crap like that.

Do Black people have souls

They're loud, obnoxious materialistic, violent, and egotistical. Black communities,schools, and hiphop are testament to that, aswell the various videos and documentaries "showcasing" Black culture and criminality in both the africa and the West.. . They are somewhat intolerable and easy to anger, but people end up making excuses and invent cleverly worded- loopholes to justify their shitty behaviour.

Nutmeg

I was walking down the grocery store aisle, and stopped by the spice area for some turmeric, and noticed nutmeg. I rarely, if ever use nutmeg, but I felt this odd twinge of remorse. Not only did its price rival the turmeric I was in the store for, but it was probably less, and even still both the turmeric and the nutmeg was worth a pittance. This stuff used to control the world. Europeans struggled to sail thousands of miles on the rattiest ships to make landfall on the most remote parts of the world to find nutmeg. They were willing to die, conquer, and enslave for it (could you imagine risking death because you wanted to get slightly better tasting food?). The world's first and most powerful corporation in the world was born from it. The English, Portuguese, Dutch, Spanish, French, etc. all competed heavily for it. It motivated the greatest race for empire, and colonialism in human history. It pushed human technology to its breaking point at a time when science and technology were hardly even proper concepts. And now it sits in little vials for less than $5 on a grocery store spice rack. It's like if you passed by Bill Gates on the street, only you found out he was penniless and a heroin addict. It was as if I could feel it scream, "Hear me, I used to be important once, I used to rule the world! I deserve so much more than this pitiful spice rack. I am a King, a God!" But there it sits, forgotten.

Idk, sorry, I just wanted to rant about nutmeg for a little bit.

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.

blood sacrifice (JK!), thats pretty much it …
kitty has her bowl and scoop/scraper.

Wiz Gear 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.

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 question: Are we really safer today than we were yesterday? Did we gain new protections overnight? No, we still face the same dangers. Just different ways of dealing with them. For example, before guns existed, men fought wars with swords. Today, however, we fight wars with bombs and bullets instead. Guns allow us to kill enemies quickly and efficiently. Thus, war becomes less deadly and casualties decline. Unfortunately, however, killing comes at a price. There are no guarantees. Sometimes soldiers accidentally shoot civilians. Sometimes innocents mistakenly shoot soldiers. When weapons turn against us, we respond in self defense. We defend ourselves, and thus we justify violence.
The moral aspect isn't clear cut either. War might seem like a noble pursuit, but it often entails destruction and bloodshed. This creates collateral damage. People are killed, families riven apart, cities leveled. Wars destroy communities, destroy civilizations…sometimes entire species. Yes, war protects us from evil. Yet, it destroys so much goodness along the way.
That's why I disagree with the saying "Better Safe Than Sorry". Sure, we could always adopt a policy where we assume there is danger everywhere, and act accordingly. However, we wouldn't enjoy anything then. We'd be missing out on countless pleasures. To embrace risk requires accepting the possibility of failure. Failure is painful. Painful failures especially suck. Maybe there are situations where it's reasonable to gamble on failure. If you're trying to break a record, you should expect to fail. If you're climbing Everest, you should expect to fall. Even if you succeed, you'll suffer setbacks anyway.
In short, better safe than sorry, right? Not quite. Better safe than sorry merely acknowledges that there are risks. It assumes that those risks are unavoidable. Whereas, embracing risk says that we can conquer even the greatest odds. Risk implies hope; safety implies despair. Safety gives us nothing.
Risk lets us live more fully. It opens doors. It grants access. It liberates us. It inspires us. It enriches us. Better safe than sorry limits us. Embracing risk expands us. It gives us opportunity. It lifts us up. It empowers us. It frees us.
Ultimately, I think embracing risk is the wiser decision. Of course, we must protect ourselves from harm, and we should act responsibly. But we shouldn't let our fears control us. Instead, we should trust our instincts, our intuition. Trust our inner voice telling us that risk is good.
Good luck! You deserve it!

Drug “overdoses” that are actually murder

An acquaintance of mine growing up was a piece of shit, and wound up getting into drugs. Eventually he overdosed, but if you talk to people that knew him they’ll say that a guy he fucked over actually force-injected him with a lethal amount after he’d nodded off on a normal amount. Having known the guy, I don’t doubt it, and it makes me wonder how often this happens.
I think it’s probably common. I’ve seen the toll crackheads/methheads/heroin-addicts take on their families, and I couldn’t blame them for just saying “fuck this” and suiciding/overdosing them just to not have the millstone around their neck anymore.

Why do I irritate anyone I interact with for more than 3-4 hours?

Hey wizzies, so since about 5 years I've been dealing with this problem and it's only gotten worse over time.

I've been isolated for more than 5 years now, and I also during that time I haven't interacted with people online for more than 10-15 hours, so all I do is read books or scientific articles, I rarely watch any kind of media.

So now I'm trying to deal with this problem, I can't seem to interact with someone as I a accustomed to… as in, the choice of words and the sentence structure I prefer, many people online have told me I sound like a bot trying to write a formal letter with an obscure thesaurus, so it seems that if I carefully choose the words I use and greatly simplify my speech, I can seem to blend in easily. But the problem is that after a couple of days some of my verbiage starts to slip and people ghost me online or… start insulting me passive aggressively irl every time they see me, and in groups, you can see the glee in their eyes as they try to demean me, it's quite strange.

I used to think it was the combination of my strange way to communicate and my unorthodox views about many different topics, but for the past 2 years I seem to incense people online just by the way I express myself, and it's so bizarre because I basically make up some hobbies that are considered normal such as hiking, gardening and martial arts, abstain for giving my actual views on any kind of topic, I just spout the most generic mainstream views and still I get people imitating the way I write, insulting and ghosting me….and the weird thing is that I was talking to some rather introverted computer scientists the last 3 times, you'd expect they don't mind compsci jargon but they actually did.

So soon I will need to get into a job (non STEM related, a retail job actually) and I just don't want my coworkers to make a plan to get me fired again, any ideas? should I just only speak when necessary and on the most simple terms I can think of? even when I am drunk on high on weed I eventually start expressing myself the way I am accustomed so I don't know what to do…

when will the world end?

based on the book of revelation, Newton calculated that the world would end in 2060. he believed that the office of pope fulfilled the role of antichrist, whose rule according to prophecy would last 1260 years, starting at 800 AD with charlamagne being crowned holy roman emperor by the pope which reconfirmed the donation of pepin to the papacy. no sooner than 2060 would Christ return to lead his children home to take them to the new jerusalem.

it feels good to see that there is an end in sight. i will be 58 when we are all saved. ive always wondered at how pathetic and miserable life was, that everything was all for nothing and that i was going to die insignificant, but it turns out i was wrong and its just a short while before everything is solved and i can bask in the glory of my creator

To much of my own dismay, my sadistic tendency to see succubi suffer has metamorphized into a new kind of fetish. I love to see comics, movies clips and read stories and so on of scenes like these where succubi gets turned into animals/objects against their wishes and the more sadistic the situation is the more aroused I get(Like pic related to which I spent last few hours beating my meat to where some random succubus gets turned into a cat and is kept as a pet by the witch and then her friend too gets turned into a rat to keep her company. Wow! Just writing it down made my dick hard. The full comic series is in some nsfw furry site so I am not linking them here). At first I didn't realize what was going on and I remember reading a story about a succubus getting turned into a bird by a witch and beating my meat to it and now it has turned to this situation where I spend last few hours of my schedule to beat my meat to this particular artist's works.
Thankfully I haven't devolved to fapping to much of the tf and forniphilia comics because most of them are too furry/tranny/creepy for my tastes. I instead gets aroused by comics and clips which feature instantanious transformation scenes. When I came to know that the characters gets turned back later on I don't get excited anymore from the scene but if I came to know its permanant I get instant boner. Similarly if character transforms into something stronger even unwillingly like a monster it also kills my boner.
Should I be worried? Is this the start of my furry phase? Should I drop beating my meat to porn for sometime and unironically go nofap before things get out of control?

I am a furry. I don't wear fursuits, participate in swinger/lgbt culture, imagine myself as a wolf-man, or interact with the furry subculture. That can all be burnt to the ground. I do find anthropomorphic animals (anthros) intriguing, I am captivated by their form. Some of this interest must have been innate but some was developed when I read a lot of science fiction, particularly in puberty I became intrigued by aliens/xenos after reading a passage in a space opera book where the protagonist is captured by an alien society, becomes a part of that society, and eventually marries an alien.

Until recently, my dominant interest in life was to become a scientist. I wanted to create something useful, elegant, something new and beautiful. I had this dream phrased in these words since I was 5 years old. But recently I became disillusioned with the fate of academics, scientists, mathematicians and others who spend their whole lives solving challenging problems, trying to get a solution. And this solution they get is either something that is used 100+ years later to solve another problem, or is useful in circumstances that are very far away from the lives of most people, and very far away from the academic's personal life. I don't want to be an academic that works his whole life, with his magnum opus — creating a new heat resistant graphene, or some other thing I can live without. I want to create something that would affect my life, and I want to create something beautiful. I want to create anthros.

There is a degree of waifuism associated with this desire, my perfect anthro wife is allowed to be perfect because she doesn't exist. Media shows anime girls, cyborgs, robots, etc, to be clean and attractive, perfect and better than humans. But even if anthros were to be different from this ideal, if they could be fat, stupid, greedy, lazy, if they would have bad instincts or if some would be deformed, if they would be no more perfect than normal people, I would still want to create them. Because to me that would be what I want and to me that would be beautiful.

I'm not alive by accident, or for free, I am given this life as a result of an endless chain of improbable occurrences, from the big bang to the circumstances surrounding my individual life. Because of this I feel indebted to pursue a beautiful dream, with my conscience dictating my will. Now I've been on this site (with breaks) for over three years and this is my first time starting a thread. I am asking you for input. Share your thoughts with me, share what you find intriguing or repulsive, good or bad about this dream of mine so that I may better develop the ideas surrounding this goal.

Fast Food Quality

So over the last 10 years or so, like everything else, fast food has gotten increasingly shittier. Some people say Burger King is better, or McDonald's is the best choice, but they all taste like dogshit to me. Even the fast food joints that are sort of out of the way to get to in my area (Sonic) give me stomach cramps. And before you say "don't go to fast food and expect quality", I do. But not the fast food chains planted in my own area. I take nightly drives and go across state, because my retarded state now outlaws the only cigs with flavor because they're afraid too many black people are smoking them. Whenever I get hungry, it doesn't matter where I go, every chain restaurant, be it Wendy's or Friendly's, tastes delicious there. The food is plump and rich. I was fucking amazed when I ordered mozzarella sticks, and when I bit into them, juice spurted out. Why is everything so much fucking better in the above-middleclass areas? Why are the chains in my area selling rotten food? The burger king sandwiches in the ghetto shithole I live in actually look like they were stomped on, half-digested and regurgitated. Who's at fault here? Corporate? The manager? The booger 'flickin tards working the grill? What's fast food in your area like?
