Best moments of your day

Before you go to sleep post here what was the best part of your day.

I'll begin, on this day, my best part was eating oreo cookies with milk. I haven't eaten oreo cookies in years so I enjoyed it very much. I was transported back in time when I was a silly kid who watched cartoons.

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.

"Ironicposting" is crap, and it has destroyed every website in which is allowed. I made it in this same board so others could talk about this and relate their experience.

Tips for being a NEET?

so I just dropped out of college and I'm about to fully embrace NEETdom, but I have no idea how to leech off the system (I live in an european country). I started researching things and so far I found out that I'll have to pay for social insurance unless I apply for unemployment, but then they'll they try to get me a job.
I think I'll be able to dodge getting employed by not showering for a week before the interview, being sleep deprived, sounding like a weirdo and responding very slowly.
I'm fine with living with my mom and her being incredibly disappointed with me, I just don't want to be fucked by the system
So, do you have any tips for what I should watch out for? I don't want to make some silly mistake.

this country is doomed.... (is it a joke, or are people this dumb...?

https://redstate.com/jeffc/2021/04/29/breaking-biden-official-confirms-plans-to-ban-fried-chicken-and-grape-drink-n371319
AUSTIN, TX– The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) is preparing to institute more measures to safeguard black lives by banning products they like. After it was announced that the Biden administration would prohibit the sale of menthol cigarettes, officials are looking at other ways the government can save the black community from itself.

Only days after the menthol ban was announced, the FDA declared that it was pushing full steam ahead with its effort to rescue the black community through what they refer to as “strategic race-based prohibition.” An FDA official explained that the fried fowl and grape-flavored cola – also known as “grape drank” – must be banned because “these hopeless negroes don’t know how to act.”

“Preventing black people from killing themselves by banning certain products is the least we can do given the level of oppression they have endured in this country,” said a high-ranking member of the Biden administration. “This is why fried chicken and grape soda have to go.”

He added: “How could they possibly survive if we don’t make these decisions for them?”

Some have raised concerns about the menthol ban, arguing that it would lead to more interactions with the police which could result in more black fatalities during these encounters. However, the FDA assures us the number of black men shot to death by police will pale in comparison to the warm fuzzy feeling white progressives will have knowing African Americans are no longer smoking Newports, eating Popeye’s, or drinking carbonated grape-flavored beverages.

Another FDA official also noted that “dying from fried chicken consumption is proven to be more fatal than being riddled with racist police bullets.”

“It is SO fatal. You don’t even know,” the official said.

The new measure is expected to cause some upheaval in the fried chicken industry. Kentucky Fried Chicken and Popeye’s are both scrambling to develop new baked chicken recipes and have begun looking at plant-based options. “We need to show these blacks that fake fried chicken is better than real fried chicken,” he argued.

The official seemed optimistic about the plan, insisting that “it won’t be nearly as hard as getting them to take that damn vaccine.”

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.

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.

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?

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?

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.

Have we gotten smarter?

Have we as a species actually become smarter as a collective compared to our prehistoric ancestors?
I caught a bit of a reality TV program where it had some soycuck normalfag struggling to make a fire and live in the wild.
This got me thinking the following: Have we as a collective gotten smarter or have we always been just as intelligent even in the stone age.
Being able to utilize your environment for your needs as it concerns your survival is what I am deeming intellectual ability as and it seems that the average person in this current age may be roughly on par but there is less need to be adequately adept at understanding your surroundings to survive.
As a NEET for example you may not need to have any survival skills and the same can be said for a homeless person in the current age where in the past someone who not only lacked information about their surroundings and or had diminished ability to reason would not survive.

We are actually less intelligent as a collective in the current year than we were pre history.
Do not be fooled thinking the accumulation of knowledge and ideas makes modern man more intelligent than the humans who only had oral records to go off.

This is assuming that both the modern wizard and the ancient wizard has the same cognitive stock ability.

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

All AMD Processors Since Phenom II Have BadBIOS Circuitry That Leaks to the Military

Title gives my conclusion from empirical events I witnessed and inside info. PSP runs on the same circuit, but isn't the backdoor per se, which has been around for much longer.

Just like AMD was able to change the crypto algorithms for the Zen chip they licensed to China, they can change how the CPU behaves at any system, even those already deployed. This can be used to sabotage any program or computation, making BadBIOS (uses radio, not sound) vastly nastier than StuxNet.

American military made a grave mistake by giving access to the morons of the Brazilian military, who are letting knowledge of this spread like a fire (and misusing it for petty profit and inside jobs to justify a police state). Israel, UK and France also have access, but are much more professional.

R: 12 / I: 0
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?

Wizteeth

What's the state of your teeth, wizards?
How many cavities do you have?
How many filling?
Did you lose any teeth (wisdom doesn't count)
I'm terrified of dentists and on top of that I'm poor.
In fact most wizards are poor and depressed which means most of you don't really care about your teeth, I know I never did. It was a mistake.
Now I have one broken molar which needs to be extracted, 10+ cavities some of them are really old and Demiurge knows what else. Implants are too expensive and dentures are pain in the ass.
I thought I was safe because I never drink or smoke or do meth, I was wrong. Take care of your teeth.

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.

does anybody actually care about ethics except to virtue signal?

in 2021, the year of our lord, why should i do the right thing? when i try to keep my word or follow universal moral laws i am branded as a "simp" or "cuck" or "neckbeard". it seems like a lot of people dont care about ethics until something happens to them or something they identify with, like the self serving retards that cry on twitter about trump saying something transphobic or whatever. i think this is because in an anglo centric capitalist world you are just expected to pursue your own interests and any action without respect to consequence is out of the norm. unless of course its virtue signalling where people can get their serving size of wholesomeness from companies or politicians or celebrities that blatantly contradict themselves

Why are normalfags so obsessed with being "clean"

Today there were a few things that got me thinking/ The mold on my bed sheets and the ants living in the kitchen/ My mother said she wants me to throw out the bed sheets with mold in the laundry and it got me thinking about mold/ mold is fine I used to live in a dirty damp room infested with mold and aside from staining the walls it was perfectly fine with no ill effects health wise so crying about mold in your home is just an aesthetic issue and I happen to be welcoming to mold living with me.

The second issue is ants.
My mother complained we now have ants in the kitchen and I watched her use some chemical to kill them.
What is the problem with having ants in your living space the only bad thing I can imagine is they can break your computer but I have had ant infestations and this never happened.
The only other reason is you dislike the ants crawling over you and this doe not happen much in my experience even when you have an infestation.
Why are normalfags so violent to insects and do not even think twice to kill them.
I am fine with cockroaches crawling over me in my bed living with me the same as ants and mold it is nature and ok with me.

I wonder if normies just hate mold and insects living with them because they were taught to and not because there is any valid reason to at all.

The only thing about being unclean I dislike is that I smell urine constantly because I never change my underwear and my bed also smells like pee but aside from that the only reason to be clean is to impress other people unless you personally enjoy being clean more than natural.

Wizartica

This place is known for people suggesting absolutely insane and crazy schemes. Here's another one.

How possible would it be to abscond to and live in Antarctica? What would you have to bring to make it possible? I'm thinking that you could avoid detection and be able to finally live alone by the mere fact of how absolutely vast the continent is. It's so sparsely populated that all the possible people who could detect you and say you're "disturbing the environment" are hundreds of miles away at least:

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/77/Antarctica_Station_Map.png

(and even if they did catch on to you living there, what are they going to do? Call the cops? And would they even care?)

So, the obvious main issue is heat. The only thing I can think of off of the top of my head is if there was some coalbeds that you could dig into to use for heat and the CO2:

https://pubs.usgs.gov/circ/1974/0705/report.pdf

One notable point is south of Enderby Land along the Amery Ice Shelf in the Prince Charles Mountains.

The next obvious problems are how to get there, grow food (greenhouse in the middle of the arctic), etc.. I know this is crazy, but I just wanted to spitball and have something to talk about and dream, at least, I guess.

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?

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.

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.

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?

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?

The Koresh Effect

I went down the whole "Flat Earth" rabbit hole the other day, and I feel it's a good example to use for the bigger issues of censorship and conspiracy theories in general. In particular, I was interested in the subset of flat earth people who go BACK to believing that the Earth is indeed not flat because of someone telling them a rather simplistic argument. E.g., one of my parents told me they met a flat Earther and they simply asked, "But if you go to the Southern hemisphere, you'll see a completely different sky and constellation, how do you explain that?" and it just stopped them in their tracks and that was enough to convince them. How do they not end up hearing that argument? And, after watching a few videos of people 'debunking' flat Earth, I think I realized why they never heard that argument. for one, 'debunkers' are some of the most smug assholes, and they don't ACTUALLY provide counterarguments, and secondly, I think the way most Big Tech promotes and deranks certain content has something to do with this.

You know the Barbara Streisand effect, where if you try to censor something, you're much more likely to get extra publicity for it. I think there's something similar not just to publicity of an idea, but people accepting an idea. I don't know a name for this, so I'll call it "The Koresh Effect." Imagine you were in on Koresh's cult, you were sort of on the fringes, but you weren't really believing that the end days were coming. Then, one day, you're surrounded by the ATF and are besieged by the government. You're not going to think, "Oh my god, this guy is wacko, I've involved myself in a cult and now I'm being surrounded by the ATF." Being on the edge of believing him, you're going to think, "Oh my god, I thought this guy was crazy but we really ARE surrounded by demons and the end days really are coming!" In other words, the very act of censorship not only gives free publicity, but via the Koresh Effect it also increases the number of fervent believers.

Case in point, now imagine you follow the flat Earth stuff. You don't really believe it, but you find the mysticism really 'fun,' and you like how they keep saying that, "Our ideas are constantly pushed out by Big Tech, MSM, and the government!" Then, one day you do your search for flat Earth, and instead of following your favorite wacko, you can't see him in the results. Instead, it's JUST people debunking flat Earth AND there are extra "context" warning bubbles supplied that you've never seen in any of your other searches. Before, there wasn't a single argument that supported their thesis in your eyes, now one of the points they were making was actually correct. Or, if you have no interest in flat Earth, but just want to see what they're saying, so you type in "flat Earth arguments" into Google/Youtube just to ONLY get back results DEBUNKING it and a little message trying to tell you the correct belief, then there's a sizeable number of people who are going to think, "What the hell is going on here?" And they'll end up giving flat Earth arguments MORE support in their heads than they otherwise would have and actively search out arguments FOR it just BECAUSE they're so much harder to find and because they feel like they're being spoonfed a narrative like they're an idiot.

Another aspect of this are the debunkers themselves. That's a totally different phenomenon that I've found REALLY interesting going down this rabbit hole. Because every video I watch from a flat Earth person makes me NOT want to believe flat Earth, but every video I watch from a DEBUNKER makes me WANT to believe flat Earth. There's something about their incredibly dismissive nature and smug attitude that just makes me want to prove them wrong! This is sort of beside the point though, as it isn't necessarily about censorship, but is tangentially related because I think a lot of people think, "I can make people stop believing silly things by mocking them!" when nothing could be farther from the truth.

Sorry for the essay, but it's kind of upsetting me how all the arguments going on about censorship going on nowadays aren't focusing on the practicality of it and trying to look at it pragmatically. E.g., does it actually WORK and change people's minds to censor or belittle an idea, or does it do the exact opposite?

Is Pro-City Posting a Psyop?

I escaped the city a few years ago and have found life to be not just 'a little bit easier', but orders of magnitudes easier. I actually have disposable income and savings without having to decide which routes to take to avoid gangs and deciding between eating ramen for a month or cutting internet for the month.

What surprises me about this is that I was looking at cost of living calculators before doing this, and thinking it would be impossible to live outside of the city. Now, I understand that not only were those calculators wrong, they were just comically wrong to be point that I wonder if they could be sued.

I also was thinking that it'd be harder to find a job outside of the city, but instead I realized that outside of the city I was practically competing against two or maybe three other job applicants, one of which probably had a jail record or a drug problem, while in the city–you had a fat chance even for a minimum wageslave. An autistic wizard like myself actually has a shot. The wageslaving is still technically the same deadend job description, but the stress level is staggeringly lower. The pay is less, for sure, but the cost of living is so much smaller that it doesn't even enter my mind.

When I go to the grocery store, I don't have to avoid street gangs. At night, it's actually quiet. The place where I live has rent that's an order of magnitude less with an order of magnitude more living space.

All of this adds up. Somedays I just remember how terrible life was in the city and I want to cry before I realize I'm not there anymore.

I mean, all the things telling me that the city was better was just so wrong that I have to wonder: are all these things pushing people into the cities one gigantic psyop? Why are the cost of living calculators so wrong? Why do you have to explicitly search for rural cities for their positions to appear? What the hell is going on that all of this advice is collectively so monumentally wrong? My mind is bending on the edge of conspiratorial to try to figure this out.

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

Did you refuse to attend school?

>How was your school attendance record?


The Japanese word hikikomori has long and widely been used in its verb form – hikikomoru – within Japanese society. Hikikomoru is a compound verb made up of the two characters for ‘to pull back’ [hiku] and ‘to seclude oneself’ [komoru]. Collectivism is strongly rooted in Japan and this allows for an easy formation of groups, but when a situation arises where an individual has left the group and is isolated, they are described as ‘that person who has withdrawn into seclusion!’ [hikikomotta; i.e., the past tense of hikikomoru].

In this way, individuals who have withdrawn from the group, in particular school or the workplace, for days, weeks, or months, spending most of the day within their home, are referred to in Japan as hikikomori. Hikikomori became widely used as a noun in the latter half of the 1990s when a Japanese psychiatrist, T. Saito, published ‘Hikikomori – Adolescence Without End.’1 Saito tentatively defined hikikomori as a person who has ceased to go to school or work for more than 6 months and has stayed at home for most of this time.
