Anti-Crawl Thread: The Big C Edition

This is the 100th crawl thread made so far.
The Crawl Thread was originally created by a wizard who wished to encourage discussion during The Weekend Crawl: the mysterious phenomenon of our post rate slowing dramatically as the weekend rolled in. The idea was well-received, and the topicless thread has received more than 30,000 posts since its inception. How has your day been so far, Wiz?

No politics or religion in the crawl thread, please.

I'm unironically scared of black people. I mean I think it's right to be fearful of ghetto niggas but I live in a small town with only a few blacks so the ones that I see are probably alright, but they still strike fear into me. How do I get over this. When I see them it's like an alarm goes off in my head.

Good Bad and Ugly

Good people can call for the death of an innocent man as revenge for a criminal dying.

They judge based on genetics over behavior or character, altruism and love are materialistic.

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.

I Built an Air-Gapped Feed Reader and That Unveiled US’ Military Surveillance

I made for myself a feed reader that can visit pages that need JavaScript (with Puppeteer), make feeds from it (PHP script), make full feeds out of it and write the result to an email file (msg/eml). I then take these files to an air-gapped computer (no network ports, no radio dongles) and read it there with a localhost web stack and custom JavaScript that makes it easy to read hundreds of entries every day. The emails include images and even videos, so there is no need to visit the sites manually most of the time.

Besides learning what is written in all these feeds, I have come to learn what isn't written: the US military has access to all PCs (even air-gapped ones) by using radio to control all CPUs (BadBIOS). They use this for blackmail, sabotage and theft. All done by state sponsored cyber terrorists. This is the reason the US is insisting that countries don't use Chinese 5G: China has discovered what the US was doing and now can either do it themselves or block the US' radio transmissions - and the US doesn't want to lose their backdoors.

I also learned that the big social networks tap into the data mined by the US' military to surface recommendations in their timelines. TikTok was called a national security threat, but isn't the only one that is tapping the surveillance machine: Twitter, YouTube and Facebook are on it too.

I am willing to partner with researchers who want to replicate my findings and reverse engineer the malware they inject on the RAM of PCs. There is more that I haven't written here, but ask away and I will reply. For those who don't have the skills or don't want to face the danger of going against a corrupt military, but that still want to stand against the violations of Human Rights that are going on, just spread the word. Thank you.

god is real and he hates me
have any other wizards come to this realization?
normals are only willing to accept that god is real and benevolent or that god is not real
but i feel that many wizards would be more open to the idea that god is both real and mean as hell
he wants to hurt me
im sure he has tired of large scale attacks like floods
with me he just prefers to mess with me and drive me insane
he also slowly destroys my mind and body without me even messing up

Being addicted to video games is great, it's escapism at it's finest espcially RPG's or action RPG's. I don't have to worry about real life it's all so lame.
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

How do you ban/discourage political discussion?

Mods, apologies if this is more of a /meta/ topic. I don't intend for this to be wizardchan focused, but more imageboards in general.

See the subject line. I've found myself more and more interested in forums where relationshit/sex/political/"hi femanon here" discussions just simply don't happen or at the very least are greatly discouraged. This is more or less why I usually lurk the /hob/ boards here, but I guess I find myself wondering how the /hob/ board here has remained one of the most apolitical places I've ever seen on the internet. I almost feel like what's happening is that wizardchan essentially has multiple lines of defense.

First line of defense: outright general banned rules.
Requiring male virgins implicitly means you can't mention your gender, you can't talk about sex, and without sex the relationshit drama posting is dramatically minimized. You can't get free shit/conversations for starting a thread with "hi femanon here"/"tfw no gf"/"I had sex when…" You actually have to work and bring something to the table.

Second line of defense: general culture created by the first line of defense.
The first line of defense ensures you've got a fairly non-normie case coming on board. This reinforces the general rules.

Third line of defense: containment threads.
I think if it weren't for the porn and politics containment threads, we'd see a bunch more bullshit relationshit/sex talk than we already do. They're the last bastions of normiedom.

Fourth line of defense: secrecy–both "hidden in plain sight" and literal hidden boards.
Curious/Trolling normies flood /wiz/, while remaining ignorant of /hob/ or the hidden boards.

Comfy thread

Comfort. What hits the spot for you? What gets you feeling nice and comfy? That sweet relaxed feeling.

For me it's junk food. Particularly when I've had something to drink and am starting to play some fun game or when I've just opened an interesting thread on wizardchan. Nothing beats that feeling of just devouring an absolute mountain of pure sweet goodness, the feeling of ordering and opening a takeaway, making something delicious (pic related is extremely easy to make).

No wonder the US has so many mass shootings

There is something genetical about the american mixture of people living in the US that makes them absolutely repulsive mentally.

Maybe it's because they're mostly descendants of frontiermen many of whom were killers, thugs, rapists and all sorts of weirdos escaping poverty and starvation in Europe. Like an Australia but on turbo mode.

Americans are even more materialistic than Chinese people which is a major achievement. Your worth in society is literally decided by the dollar amount in your stock account or bank balance.

Also there is a huge number of people descended from said thugs and rapists who simply enjoy bullying or torturing things, animals and people for fun all the way from age 5 to the professional world and beyond.

Class mobility is also extremely low for anyone not an athlete or startup businessman. There is an incredible number of sociopaths who inherited their wealth and do everything in their power to keep wages as low as possible for people not as lucky as themselves.

Don't blame capitalism, communism or any ideology for why there is a mass shooting in the US every, what, 2 days? It's because so many people can't stand living among the vile disgusting type of human called a typical American.

It's completely logical these things happen every two, three days in the US, not in a country like Japan, Germany, India or the UK (even when calculated relative per capita).

Most americans are disgusting mentally, America is also a disgusting hyper-competitive antisocial society, and their treatment of fellow human beings only fuels the rise of these shootings as more and more people can no longer take it.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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?

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.

I was thinking today about the price of a home in 2021 which averages $340,000. At 20% downpayment you have to have on command to drop $68,000 not including other charges and fees that come immediately after and I just have to ask.

How does ANYONE afford this? It's utterly mindboggling to imagine dropping that much money in an instant. I can only think that it's like cars where people aren't putting any form of downpayment and are getting insanely high rates. How do they expect this to continue?

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.

poverty denialism

Recently ive been thinking poor normies arent really poor;they are mostly fat,they have tvs,cellphones(mostly expensive ones),sneakers,they attend nightclubs and drink alcohol regularly
maybe im going too far into libertarian territory but im thinking slums/ghettos/commieblocks are just a bit poor but no really an structural problem that merits any kind of attention of aid.

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…

I've noticed lately that normalcattle regard coherent thought as strange or a sort of illness. As far as I have observed, they react to answers further in-depth than "I thought it was good/bad" to questions like "did you like/enjoy <thing>?" or "what do you think about x?" as bizarre. They frequently use words incorrectly, and then get upset when you ask for clarification even if you make it sound like it's your fault by saying "I don't understand, could you rephrase?". If I say more than 2 sentences at a time, I am often chastised and told that nobody else can speak even if the conversation has just begun. It also isn't uncommon for them to stop paying attention to me, or turn and start talking to somebody else, or even in some cases to outright leave the room after only half a sentence comes out of my mouth in response to a question. They often dismiss observations like "if you come to your break 5 minutes later you wouldnt have to wait for the microwave and you would have a little extra time to eat" or "What your saying doesnt really make any sense/isnt correct, this report is saying the opposite" with the phrase "you would be a good lawyer".

As for why I have to talk with them so much, they wont leave me the fuck alone so I tried to be friendly but its like trying to relate to aliens. Sometimes its like im actually invisible, if there are 3 of us, the other 2 will talk as though they are alone. I need to find a way to get NEETbux.

Why do they behave this way? It's worse than children. How do I get a position where I dont have to interact with people like this?

/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. I could go on and on, but I'll instead "open the floor" to discussion.

>dcdw: nothing defines the 2010s
What the fuck? Do you think this guy is right? Personally I can think of tons of things unique to the 2010s(SJW hipster culture, early smart phones, internet seeing mass appeal, 4chan popularity, trump) but it seems like tons of people actually agree with this opinion (just going by the like/dislike ratio).

In fact I can even see the new fads and culture emerging for the past few years that will make up a good chunk of 2020 culture. Just off the top of my head
>mass popularity of anime/japan
>more people retreating to the internet
>rise of short content like tiktok
>discord becoming the newest way youth chat with each other

Imagine it is the future, and you live in a pod with full automation. You are kept artificially alive for billions of years.

What do you want from life?

"why bother" the wizard thinks to himself, "Life is a sea of clashing egos - souls suspended in suffering and in death I am equal to a king - a corpse that once knew it was dying!"

We all cast a shadow from the same source there is no escaping that we are human.
It is conceited to think of ourselves as better than normal folk we are different but essentially the same in many ways only differing in how we express our existence.
What is it you crave? what do you want from life?

We all want something

Gum Disease

I'm afraid that the tooth that cracked over a decade ago and has been allowed to rot has finally developed a serious infection. The lower area of the gum beneath the tooth has been swollen for over 2 weeks and it looks like I'm gonna have to scrape up the money to get it checked out. From what I researched it could be very bad and I'm worried but oh well. What have been your dental health woes over the years and how did you cope?

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

I really don't get why wizards or NEETs actually care about politics, at all. What do you get from caring about how society turns out? We're the rejects, the only thing that changes is how many NEETbux we get. I just assume that every political person I see is a normal, since only they have a reason to care.

Despite the fact that men have it worst almost in every aspect of modern society, it's still treated like crap by it. Speacially if you're an atipical male (introverted, shy, et al).

How does IRC work?

Over the years I have this cycle of:
>Forget about IRC.
>Have a question/am bored.
>Think that this would be good to ask/idle about on IRC for.
>Go to IRC.
>Say "Hi" or ask a question.
>NO RESPONSES FROM ANYONE FOR THE ENTIRE THREE HOURS I IDLE ON THERE.
>Wonder why people use IRC.
>Leave.
Am I using IRC wrong? Is shadowbanning a thing in IRC? As I type this, I'm on one of the channels with the most users on Freenet and it's been NOTHING. It's just users logging in and out the entire time. Sometimes. SOMETIMES, over the years, I have caught two users actually TALKING with each other (and only on the busiest channels can I catch such a rare occurrence). It consists of one reply a minute, and if there is an errant response from another user it's ignored. These are in channels with 2k users. Do people just treat IRC as an idling simulator? Have I just been extremely unlucky?

I'm 31 years old and I feel constantly tired these days. I guess the anhedonia just hit me and there is no exit anymore. Everything feels like a chore but paradoxically I also feel bad with myself if I don't do anything, maybe because of all of these societal constructs in my brain. But isn't this apathy a form of Zen enlightenment? Ironically, from a scientific point of view, why should we do things? I remember Ligotti saying something similar, like apathy and depression are the ultimate impersonal and objective psychological frames (see the depressive realism theory). Anyway, I guess I still can exist in a sort of zombified existence.

I think the notion that life is mostly suffering is flawed

Let me elaborate
U can't really measure suffering or happiness objectively and even if we reduced them into ( pain) and ( pleasure) it's still very subjective and can't be measured, and even if we assumed that it can be measured by let us say hedons and dolons ( suffering unit) you can't really know the relation between them, because 1- it's subjective, 2 - they are different concepts you can't know how much dolons is equal to 1 hedon it's just like trying to know-how much meters are in 1 kg
So the whole notion is false, preferentialism is way more logical, and it proves that existence is indeed not suffering as 99.99% of people prefer existence to nothingness, that's why they haven't committed suicide yet
Also there's flaws in the measurements like even if life contains more (amount) of suffering, amount /= value
Maybe on minute of happiness can make forget days of suffering and that's the case in real life outside the heads of some pretentious melancholic philosophers

What do you think of modern art?

Is it a sham? A circle jerk?
Abstract art like what pollock is famous for can look nice but even when it does it is because it is still following aesthetic rules like repition of pattern and form however lately I have read into him and his art a bit and he seems a bit like a sham and I question the art worlds obsession with him beyond being innovative. Pollock once sold a painting and afteri t was damaged he just sploshed paint over it and said it does not matter anyway as the buyer would not be able to tell.
A significant number of his works have been found to have not been done by him after analysing the paint used also so one cannot help but be skeptical.

It is ultimate normalfaggotry to ascribe higher value to something because social reasons alone and that is what I think happens with a lot of this modern art. Someone who has some sense of authority claims that an artists work are good and others follow suite because there is no other way to judge something in a general way that is subjective and not adhering to athseitic prinicpals.
The normalfag looks around to others for social approval before judging something being good or bad and this is what you see with the art world.

Bullying

Heres a question: Do you think that bullying should be banned or allowed in moderation as it is a natural manifestation of the collective and inevitable so should be kept to an acceptable level among school children.

Do you think maybe that kids who do not get to bully are deprived from important learning in terms of social dynamics or esteem boosts so it could be better to let the class/school have a punching bag as the total benefit of the group would outweigh the misery of the child?
