I fucking hate niggers i fucking hate niggers i fucking hate niggers. Fuck, why do they feel the need to mess with people just minding their own business? I can't even go to the gas station without some baboon trying to ask me for some change or call me whiteboy. Why the fuck did the confederates not clip their monkeys and now I'm dealing with their greed generations later? Fuck, dumb fucking monkeys make this world of ours that much more difficult. I hate being poor and on the same level as these knuckle dragging blue gum coons. How could people say that the past was harder when you could push these apes down on the sidewalk if they even glanced in your direction? A fucking slave race that will plague us until the next big thing happening comes by
I always eat sitting in by bed.
There was no crepe dough left so my mother brought me a burger which they somehow call a sandwich despite its shape. On one site I saw burgers with the patties from carrot and beet, but I haven't eaten those.
Rye bun, Greek sauce, omelette, salami, slightly pickled cucumber, tomato and lettuce.
Hamburgers are a variety of sandwich.
Have a pair of those too, but don't get obsessed with items, unless hiding my toothbrush so my father won't use it or having my own cutlery counts as it.
i fucking hate cops so much.

For any particular reason?
sometimes I make a post and I get a weird sense of deja vu. I think I might be seeing the same threads and replying to them without remembering I already replied to them earlier.
It's not a scam, nobody lies to you. People who play the lottery know (or should know) their chances are practically zero.>>227544
Yes, we know, you've been saying it in every thread for a while now.
>>227565>It's not a scam, nobody lies to you. People who play the lottery know (or should know) their chances are practically zero.
It is a scam because it takes advantage of people that don't understand statistics and probability. There are many other sources of gambling like the stock market which are objectively a better way to spend your money. It is also marketed to people by psychologically manipulative, disingenuous methods.
People being stupid and spending their money on a bad deal is not the same as a actual scam.
There is no deception or cohesion so it isn't a scam.
>>227568>it takes advantage of people that don't understand statistics and probability
It'd be a scam if they told them they have higher chances of winning. Let me clarify I'm not defendig the lottery, I think gambling in general is stupid. And I agree when you say they use psychologically manipulative and disingenuous methods. But I still don't think it's a scam.
It's $10 a week for the very minute chance of becoming a millionaire. Of course it's virtually guaranteed not to happen and they know that but for $10 they are buying a dream, they are buying a dream that they could potentially become millionaires. I don't see a problem with it.
Made a cream cheese, cucumber, and refried bean sandwich.
Was pretty good, though probably isn't super healthy.
That sounds pretty good wiz! Yesterday I had a breakfast bagel it was yummy. Bacon egg cheese little sausage links and some HP sauce on an everything bagel.
A hearty and tasty full breakfast all in one sandwich. Good way to go.

why is the internet filled with prison gay porn addicts?
How can I stop regretting poor decisions? I spent over $600 on a Nintendo Switch and games. I should've just sold my current PC and bought a better PC. Even worse, I bought all the Switch games digitally for muh convenience, so now I can't even sell them. FML.
mo money mo problems
You probably buy things on impulse. Think when you are going to make a large purchase next time. I know it sounds like common sense, but most people don't actually take it to heart.
I don't think you know what prison gay means.
He's using it correctly, it is you who does not.
No, he really isn't.
well, how about you tell me what the term means?
>>227642An otherwise heterosexual man who while in prison engages in homosexual sex. Can include who men prefer succubi but resort to gay sex as an sexual and/or emotional outlet while incarcerated, as well as men who are forced into submissive sexual roles by other men punks.
orA deceptive variety of gay man, who has the appearance of a very macho, straight man, but is indeed, very very gay.
An alledgedly straight person resorting to homosexuality while incarcerated.
You know, the meaning the word had since the 80s. Not some zoomer bullshit.
found a text file from2 years ago title 'wiz movies' and this is what was on it:
Rebels of the neon god
Away with words
The River 1997
Une homme qui don't
What time is it there?
Throw away your books and rally on the street
no idea what it's about, im thinking someone posted a list and i just copy/pasted it intending to watch it later but forgot about it
It's the same goddamn point. Men resorting to homosexuality because they cannot acquire a succubus. In prison it's because of physical separation, on the internet it's because they simply are unable to.
You are talking about porn on a site where people don't have any sex at all.
There is no stopping someone from getting straight porn on the internet.
The only people, even prison gay people, who seek out gay porn do so because they are actually gay. Not because they have no other options to get off.
I'm not talking about just this site. The normgroids on who use the internet but can't get any sex can turn prison gay, regardless of the amount of porn they have access to. Just look at /r9k/.
If they can't get any sex at all then they wouldn't turn prison gay.
People turn prison gay because the only sex they have available is same sex. What you are saying has nothing to do with prison gay.
It's incredibly easy to get gay sex.
Dude specifically said "can't get any
Sorry, poor wording. The whole point is that it's easier to get gay sex than straight, so they turn gay cause they just need sex that badly.
But really though, outside of cases of isolated populations I don't think that is the case.
Even if it was it wouldn't be the same as prison gay since it is driven by situational circumstance such as being locked in a all male environment.
I mean whores are a thing and are universally available. Similarly there are low standard sluts that will sleep with anyone that pays them attention and gives them stuff like food and drink.
This may be because I am a outsider to the whole mating/sex chasing thing, but if your goal was just sex with a succubus it actually is really easy, especially if you have some spending money. Not being gay at all, even a complete hambeast of a gross succubus is still more physically appealing on a pure lust level then a man. Such low value succubi are usually pretty easy to sleep with from my observations. At least if they have the esteem/self worth that properly aligns with their sexual market place value.
And I will say it again, as long as you aren't totally flat broke, whores are always a option.
Again, just observing /r9k/ and "crab communities", going prison gay seems widespread.
Or it could be people making shit up on the internet, or gays/bi guys telling stories to normalize their degeneracy.
Completely false. It is MUCH harder to find gay partner than a straight one. Max 2% of people are gay - don't you have a brain?
Gays are far more promiscuous and open to casual sex than straights.
You're truly mentally fucked if you think it's possible for them to be so promiscuous that it overcomes them being a tiny percent of the population.
Slutty succubi are everywhere and in far greater numbers
That's still a gay man for every 100 people, that's a million gay men for a population of 100 million and in a society that has social media and degenerate casual sex apps it will not be hard for them to find each other.>>227677
It does. succubi generally are slutty because they want something not for the act itself. Men are much more driven by primal lust.
why the fuck does /b/ exist. so many unvirgin degenerates there.
But that's the mods lounge.
Extreme delusion. There are desperate succubi everywhere, they are just undesirable because they are sluts/ugly/fat/not teenagers. They are on degenerate apps just the same, and in any area there will be 40x more users than a gay app.
the fact that you know about those things imply something about you
Every kind of succubus is desirable to some normogroid
If you do have to use streaming sites, as long as your adblock is good and you don't use google to search (I use duckduckgo) then it should work out fine. Stream sites aren't that bad these days.
You have to put yourself out there to get it though. I’m not “prison gay”, I’ve had an attraction to men for a long time. However, I never put myself out there. Same for most crab types, they aren’t willing to put themselves out there for it. So in practice it isn’t really any easier. It’s the same with straight sex really. If you went out of your way for it, you could just pay for sex.

Sorry for the late reply I was looking at another thread….
My mother forced a family meeting, and my sister being a succubus of course, asked me why I don't go to parties , mocking me that I do not have life experience because I am isolating myself in my room,never had a job,girlfriend,shit like this, I briefly told her my outlook on life (which she disregarded completely because "muh life experience") and she was "I understand you , you don't understand me , YOU NEED FRIENDS, I AM TRYING TO HELP YOU" and so on, of course I sperged out and told her to leave me alone.
Now all of my family members look down on me like I am a homonculus.
At least my gut feeling was right and I should've just nod and leave, they only care for me to be there just to give me shit.
Bottom line is, don't say anything to them that they don't want to hear, they will never accept you no matter what you mean to them.
>>227806>it is a very common phrase.

>>227820>Only because you don't gotta deal with these nasty synchronicities every day
You do know what the feeling you are describing is a common symptom of schizo disorders right?
I am not making fun of you, it literally is one of the symptoms that of that set of disorders.
The last time my sister pulled the "no friends" card, I told her off and she went and shut herself in her room. Feels good to have pushover family members.
When my sister pulled the no friends bullshit I pulled the manipulative whore card and pointed out what a train wreck her life is due to her getting too friendly with broke scrubs.

Simple, just beat the dog. Beating, done right, does wonders. My dog recently was running into my neighbor's yard all the time. Got fed up with it, waited till she did it again, then beat her like the devil. Never once went into their yard again after that. And don't listen to weenies making up lies about how it makes them "aggressive", that's only if you do it regularly for petty stuff.

Don't you edgelords have the dog hate thread for this dogshit?
succubi generally can't properly raise dogs because dogs require proper leadership and authority to be trained right. Something which most succubi suck at.
now tell us how you really feel ! B-p

mom threw that "millennial" shit at me again for being an eccentric wizard and I told her dumbass I'd be essentially the same person I am if I was born 100 years ago
she got stumped by the "essentially" word and repeated herself
apparently "millennial" is the only generation in human history in which eccentrics were born
Eccentric in what way?
A million ways. What she hates most is that I'm an extremely secretive loner. Even though that's the freaking opposite of all my "millennial" "peers."
If you are eccentric in a million ways then you are probably eccentric in many ways that are exclusively found or predominately found in millennials.
No, and if I had to list all the ways, you would understand that it's not a "millennial" thing.
Btw, what are these "millennial" eccentricities anyway? Watching anime? Being a neet? … Being a 30yo virgin? I can see where you're going with this and those sorts of things don't legitimately qualify as eccentricities.
What does qualify as being an eccentricity then? Being a spoiled brat and bothering your mum? Well that's one so you only have 999,999,999 left to go.
>>227868>Being a spoiled brat and bothering your mum?

Mindset has no effect on educational/skill development.
Belief in hard work as opposed to intrinsic talent has no effect on work results.https://psycnet.apa.org/record/2019-50726-002
Wrong, actually>we find that students from lower-income families were less likely to hold a growth mindset than their wealthier peers, but those who did hold a growth mindset were appreciably buffered against the deleterious effects of poverty on achievement: students in the lowest 10th percentile of family income who exhibited a growth mindset showed academic performance as high as that of fixed mindset students from the 80th income percentile. These results suggest that students’ mindsets may temper or exacerbate the effects of economic disadvantage on a systemic level.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4978255/
Notice that your study has a sample size of only 624 students whereas this study has a sample size of 168,203 students for mathematics and 168,553 students for language. It's also worth noting that this study uses 10th graders, while yours uses 9-13 year olds.
I took a three week break about a month ago, it was weird, I didn't miss it but now that I'm back I don't hate it either. >What did you do with your time?
Read, masturbate, watch anime.
>>228053>studies specifically attempt to reproduce Mueller and Dweck>no reproduction of results is attained>cite Dweck
Sample size doesn't operate on a higher n = better study basis.
It's also worth noting that 9-13 year olds are more likely to have a mindset cause results than to have had years of previous positive results influence a positive mindset.
IQ is immutable and almost certainly genetic, the law of attraction is magical thinking and the related "grit and a growth mindset could turn anyone into a physicist" line in education behaves like a cult.
Also the other study was done on Chinese who are more likely to be pressured by their parents than by internal factors.
I really dislike racism.

Oh shit, time to kill yourself
>>228056>studies specifically attempt to reproduce Mueller and Dweck
Doesn't say that anywhere and even if it did it wouldn't prove that the methodology was flawed.>no reproduction of results is attained
A very clear correlation between growth mindset and academic performance is attained, which disproves your initial claim. I don't see how it's relevant that it didn't exactly duplicate the numeral statistics that you're citing.>cite Dweck
So? I don't think you know how to analyze a study. Citing a researcher that you happen not to like just to establish the current belief regarding growth mindset doesn't have anything to do with whether the study is accurate or not.
And give us the sources for all the bald claims you made.
Seems you didn't understand. The APA citation attempts to recreate Mueller and Dweck.https://psycnet.apa.org/record/2019-50726-002> Study 1 closely replicated Mueller and Dweck (1998). Growth mindset manipulation was associated with performance on a moderate difficulty postfailure test (p = .049), but not with any of the 8 motivation and attribution measures used by Mueller and Dweck
No reproduction of results despite replication of test.
You, personally, cite Dweck.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4978255/> Carol S. Dweckb,1
The words "Reproducibility Crisis" don't mean that research group A cannot issue endless papers backing up their own claims that secondhand smoke is harmless, they mean that other research groups cannot recreate the same results from the same study.
Since you're fond of bigger n rather than targeted sampling (and since this study itself is paywalled and I need to reach the pertinent information indirectly):http://www.educationalneuroscience.org.uk/resources/neuromyth-or-neurofact/intelligence-is-fixed/>That said, a brand new analysis has been released of all the papers that have been published on a) the relationship between mind-set and academic achievement and b) the extent to which interventions to change mind-set can impact on academic achievement [x]. Considering the data from over 400,000 individual participants, the authors found a very weak relationship between mind-set and academic achievement (r¯ = .10), with only 37% of the studies included showing a significant, positive association. Furthermore, of those studies which attempted to positively impact on academic achievement by changing students’ mindset, only 12% found a significant, positive benefit. Notably, studies were more likely to find positive effects if they taught mind-set through reading materials, and if students came from low socioeconomic backgrounds, suggesting that this technique may still have potential for some children.
Since effects are so conditional, a plausible scenario is that students from low socioeconomic backgrounds have to compensate for lower external investment in order to have any motivation to do any educational work at all, and so the "growth mindset" condition of study itself raises the level of external investment in the student, which is entirely different from the internal factor association of mindset focus.
>And give us the sources for all the bald claims you made.
IQ's genetic roots and lifetime stability are extremely well known, so I doubt that you're asking for anything regarding that.
So, on the Law of Attraction:https://mikeholdensales.com/mindset/magical-thinking/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_attraction_%28New_Thought%29http://www.articlesfactory.com/articles/metaphysical/the-law-of-attraction-loa-and-magical-thinking.html
…it's literally 19th and early 20th century Occultism, sometimes repackaged under a title of "Self Help."
The link between "growth mindset" and self-help inspired by occultism is fairly obvious, as it is usually the same sites and same individuals selling both, as well as a few researchers desperate to disbelieve the scientific consensus that IQ is largely genetic and otherwise environmentally determined.
As for the behavior of educators who embrace this, that's been a matter of personal observation.
A possible reason for the test on chinese children being unable to reproduce the results is that they did not control for poverty like the Claro et al study does. As the study points out, children from an impoverished background are more likely to hold a fixed mindset to intelligence, which would mean that analyzing just the mindset without looking at anything else wouldn't necessarily show anything. Doesn't in any way show a "reproducibility crisis".
Here's another study:https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5147462/#B1
Which shows that:>all the variables, including students’ growth mindset, resilience, psychological well-being and school engagement, were significantly and positively related.
This does contradict your initial claim that>Mindset has no effect on educational/skill development.
It clearly does. Don't move the goalposts and try to say that it doesn't count because it's not good enough for you or speculate that growth mindset students are receiving higher investment for some reason, with nothing to back that up. Even if higher external investment was the cause, growth mindset, an internal trait, is still the thing causing that.
>Law of Attraction
No, I was talking about>9-13 year olds are more likely to have a mindset cause results than to have had years of previous positive results influence a positive mindset.>IQ is immutable
I just made a steak and it served as a reminder as to how shit my parent's taste is. They always thought that if there was any pink in the meat it was underdone and overcooking shit was better than undercooking it. Then of course they would drown the steak in steak sauce because it was so tasteless.
I slightly overcooked my steak (ended up medium to well instead of medium rare) but still it way WAAAAY fucking tastier than anything that my parents made.
I think my parents got used to the taste of burned beef so that when they taste properly cooked beef they think it is undercooked. I had this reaction itially as well the first time I ate something that wasn't burned to all fuck, but once you actually get used to the taste of beef, it is fucking delicious.
I still can't stand burgers that are not well done, though. Biting into a soft burger makes me gag.
It sounds like they are/were poor and used to very low quality steak.
Cooking it like that and covering it in sauce is what you have to do to the cheapest cuts of steak to make them palatable and safe.
>I still can't stand burgers that are not well done, though.
Ground beef should always be cooked at the way through for food safety reasons.
So yeah, burgers should be cooked until done and not have a pink middle.
>>228130>Cooking it like that and covering it in sauce is what you have to do to the cheapest cuts of steak to make them palatable
lol no, maybe if you are just lazy and can’t be bothered to season it properly
there are few things in this world quite as obnoxious as the plebian steak snob flattering himself for his superior taste in raw meat
Seasoning doesn't improve the bad tough texture.
You can easily add oil and soften up your meat
>>228130>Cooking it like that and covering it in sauce is what you have to do to the cheapest cuts of steak to make them palatable and safe.
Steaks in the modern western would should almost always be safe. I think the well done mentality comes from boomers who lived in the western world when the threat of bacteria such as salmonella was a real thing.>>228135
By I mean suppose you mean marinating the steak? I suppose this will make it taste better, but you are just masking the taste with another flavor.
I never tried getting a "high quality" steak, though.I think I am going to seek out a local butcher to see if fresh cut meat is better than the cuts I can get at the supermarket.
Actually due to factory farming and lack of oversight food contamination is worse then back then by most measurements in the meat industry.
Dairy is a lot safer though.
I mean have you actually looked into it or are you just making assumptions because I would love to see data that says things in the meat industry are getting better. My info came from a environmental studies text book so there is the possibility of the information being biased.
My cot just broke.
Glad I have a back up cot, but it is of much lower quality. Will probable replace this one my next pay check.

I wish I learned how sharpen stuff like 30 years ago, it feels good to have an edge so laser-like you can literally whittle a hair, and so shiny it's a mirror
it feels like sex… or so I imagine
Last time I tried sharpening a kitchen knife I fucked the edge pretty much beyond repair it seems. Any tips?
not him but you can just use really fine sandpaper. to learn the sharpening movement and how to hold and press it down just watch some videos. if it's already dull you dont have to worry about messing up.
I can only tell you about getting a polished edge, not a "toothy" edge which pretty much everyone prefers. I hate that shit. The anon who mentioned sandpaper…that's where you start. Many people insist on using stones, but we're not all made out of money. Sandpaper works and it's cheap.
I polish with a full series of sandpaper grits from the lowest one necessary (depends on how dull the edge is) up to 2000 grit that I buy at walmart. Places sell 3000 grit and higher but those are expensive. 2000 is high enough anyway, after which I strop with red rouge and green chromium oxide, which are around 5000 and 8000 grit respectively iirc. The rouge (iron oxide) can be a solid stick of polishing compound they sell in hardware stores, or a paste for a strop. The green oxide is a paste and can be expensive, but there's an alternative. Art stores sell tubes of green chromium oxide paint in an oil base, it's chemically the same thing and like 1/3rd the price. It's what I always use.
Sharpening method is another matter though. If you google it, please don't use the "mousepad" sandpaper method that's recommended everywhere because you'll basically blunt the edge. Use a flat, rigid surface for the sandpapers. I'm going to bed now.
Honistly, sharpaning stuff is a pain to me, but isn't actually hard. Just have to keep the angle consistent.
But because I find it boring I put it off and let by blades get dangerously dull sometimes. >>228240>"mousepad" sandpaper method
I actually just looked that up because I never heard of it and yeah, that is fucking retarded. I would have thought it was a troll but it is really wide spread and a lot of people believe it for some reason.
I will say that stones are cheaper in the long run then sandpaper, and even the ultra cheap China shitstones can work for rough sharpaning then a proper stone for the fine on up.
I almost never strop because again, I don't like sharpening things all the time and I rarely need a edge that
sharp 99% of the time.
Still, good advice though.
You’re not cool enough, you didn’t unlock all the characters.
>>228271>and even the ultra cheap China shitstones can work for rough sharpaning
They do, but they wear down very quickly because they're artificial stones.>I will say that stones are cheaper in the long run then sandpaper
Yeah but there's a couple problems with that for anyone who doesn't sharpen a ton of stuff all the time, like a professional chef, or doesn't feel like investing much time. Using stones involves a higher learning curve, more delicacy, and eventually you wear a recess into the middle that needs to be lapped flat on another stone (more time & $). If you want hair whittling sharpness you're buying japanese waterstones, too, so there's even more money and learning/maintenance time + higher learning curve.
Sandpaper is great if you only sharpen every now and then. It's cheap and easy to learn and maintenance free and allows superfine edges.
You aren't wrong.
It is a prefrence thing because I learned on stones. As for the chinies ones wearing out, that takes years for myself or most people and like I said, I use it for the rough stuff.
For fine/finer I really like Arkansas water stones. Those things are worth the money and last for decades with regular use because they are harder then most others. I have a couple of small field kit size ones that I use for pocket knifes rather then those big bench stones. While they make them all the way up to ultra fine "hair whittling sharpness" kind of stones, such a edge (and work for such a edge) isn't my personal preference.
>>228284>isn't my personal preference.
someday you must experience a mirror polished edge, the feel of slicing through things like your knife is a lightsaber is just sublime, oh
it feels so good
my god, where did you learn to spell dude, this is painful to read
Quit trying to pick a fight
Holy shit are you me?
Company doesn't seems to want my money.
It is giving me shit about using a card with a address different from the shipping address, and refuses to ship to a p.o. box.
Now I have to contact them directly or catch them on the phone to actually get the parts I need/want.
All because they want to be lazy shits with their website and can't compute making a form with more then one address on it.
Same, sometimes he doesn't even bother turning the fan on. Just opens the door and pisses in the toilet like it's a fucking outhouse.
Everyone in my family does this and my room is right next to the bathroom
You are now free…from PTSD
Fuck it, I just changed the account details on my card and will have it shipped to my place, though that means I have to wait around for the delivery dude rather then have it just sent to my P.O. box.
Such a pain. These parts better be fucking worth it. Fucking lazy assholes.
Just a random question…
Is that wizard who was making money reselling earplugs on eBay still around? How is that going?
I live beside a cheap mall and once in a while they'll have "training" for the custodians where they yell out self-affirming words like "I can do it!" and the managers will keep telling them they're not good enough and should yell louder. The whole thing is contemptible. These people are cleaning service, they clean toilets and wipe up shit and urine. Someone could shit on the bathroom floor and as long as he is not found out, gets away scot free. Meanwhile, these people have to clean up the shit of an another adult man while going through training where they're brainwashed to enjoy it. Imagine being ordered to yell out that you enjoy cleaning shit and urine and punished when you're not convincing enough. I hope the mall burn down.
I thought this cultish shit was only for white collar cubicle dwellers, this is very disturbing.
Shit like this is why I refuse to work. Why should I kill myself over it? Don't let the normalfags get the satisfaction. I encourage all wizards to get on the bux whatever the cost
jesus christ the cult of wageslavery
Nah, you refuse to work because someone is footing your bills. You grow a thicker skin when having no safety net. Stuff such as >>228363
mentioned doesn't even scratch the surface for you anymore.
Besides, it's the same thing with bux. You have to keep jumnping through the hoops to not get it cut. It's a clown world no matter the route you take.
I start housekeeping work at a resort next week, hopefully I don’t need to do any retarded shit.
>>228404>Has unlimited money>Still sleeps on a pull-out couch in the family room closet
I wish I was so good at punching people that I got millions of dollars for it.
Instead I do it for free
Neighbor gathered 40 kg of chestnuts. Got only 80 uah (3 usd) for it.
You sure you didn't mistype 4 kg? Holy shit
I googled and in another city it's 2 uah for 1 kg. The prices are the same as last year. Another 2 neighbors gathered about 175 kg together last year or so.
Hm, I dunno, only visited it from google while looking up some guides on Dark Souls builds and etc
I only browse wizchan, youtube, sometime twitch and stores to buy computer stuff and torrent trackers where I pirate stuff.
Are there any good sites or chans to visit, wizzies?
>>228430>doesn't know how to use reddit
You have only yourself to blame.
Here's some wizardly subs I follow that never fails to give me interesting things to look at.
AbandonedPorn, submechanophobia, abandoned, PixelArt, UrbanHell, AnimatedPixelArt, FindTheSniper and others I won't bother dig up just for you. techsupportgore and findthesniper have interesting pics too.
>but those are just img dumps
Yeah, you really want to talk to people? What's wrong with you?
>>228433>Yeah, you really want to talk to people? What's wrong with you?
But that’s basically the express purpose of this website, and what you are doing right now.
I mean on Reddit. That website is only good for content dumping.
What the fuck is this bullshit lmao. I guess I am unknowingly performing some secret to success visualization technique to be a womanizer chad every time I masturbate. Won't this kind of thing only exacerbate your cravings? It's not like most people who watch these things actually get what they want. It'll probably only hurt you.
It's useful if you properly learn it and use it to divine about yourself. You can go about it either in a ritualistic manner or in a more open way (like creating your own method). Personally, I prefer the ritualistic method (Solomon's circle), but you'll need to find which you want to use.
What should I get obsessed with and dedicate my time and energy to?
Tips for beginners, eh, let's see.
If you are completely new, I'd say that generally, you want to have a clear mind beforehand (which means you should meditate beforehand until your mind has settled down), and that you should have the attitude that the cards are either alive or are connected to a higher power (god, the universe, whatever), and what you do is just translate what they mean. Be a bit humble, have respect towards the cards, and have the mindset of an interpreter/translator.
Generally speaking, what deck you choose stylewise doesn't matter as much since you will be channeling will into them/"marking" the deck with your question. If you wanna go hardcore, you can find old (like 50+-100+ years old) decks, and there is something there, but you don't really need them if you aren't going at it super hardcore.
The only real difference in decks are the prescribed meanings and the deck size.
If you buy an actual deck, they often come with an interpretation chart, which in some cases can include or exclude some specific meaning compared to others. As such, no matter the deck, it's best to stick with 1 source for interpreting, otherwise stuff might get a bit mixed up. (interpretation sources can be found online or in physical books. I myself use a physical book due to not being a native englishspeaker)
Really what's important in deck is it's size/ if it's a Major or Minor Arcana.
Major Arcana includes the "major" cards (like the hanged man, the fool, the magician/pope, the king, etc), while the Minor Arcana includes the lesser cards (1-10, plus a Page, Knight, King, and a Queen) times four (for Sword, Wand, Cup and Coin).
It's up to you if you chose to only use one, the other, or both, but in general, the more cards there are, the more the deck (and by extension, the read itself) will be unique after a shuffle.
Aside from that, there's like a million of ways to do a reading, and another million quirks people might incorporate. Some people opt to draw 1 card, some opt to draw 3, some 7, some take into account cards that fall out during a shuffle, others always half the deck, so the method will either be the one you look up or the one you develop yourself. At the beginning, I'd advise to looking up a method and using it. If you feel it ain't working, just go to the next one.
I can reveal my own method if you desire, but it is not guaranteed to work the best for you.
Hey, thanks for writing this out for me. Tarot seems to be very vague with no universal rules. How can it possibly mean anything if it's this vague?
I'm losing my goddamn mind, wizards. This OCD will be the death of me. My brain functions based on obsessions. The last few posts are mine. I get obsessed with one thing at a time and I can't enjoy anything else. Sometimes it's a hobby, sometimes a phrase, a number, a word, a concept. It's awful.
Oh god please help me
The drugs don't work, fucking antipsychotics, they don't do anything
when I take antipsychotics they make me really restless and anxious, they're not good to take
When you're sick does it matter if you rub snot/cough/sneeze/spit everywhere? I know it can get other people sick but could it impede my own personal healing process in any way?
i really hope there is some happening in the next days.
Don't mention it wiz.
For the most part, the rules of procuring a divination or a read might differ, but the card's meanings are usually the same or very relevant to other meanings (even between different sources), but it should be noted that there are differences.
Also generally speaking there are ritualistic/"ancient" ways to do a read, but most nowadays don't use such methods and instead rely more heavily on intuition.
In general, these are the generally most used spreads https://www.learnreligions.com/tarot-spreads-4051812
Added to that it's also a question of inner intuition and "logic" to interpret. Sometimes a card might not seem immedietly relevant to the asked question, but putting it into context it can make much sense.
I've no personal experience with reading for other people other than like twice for one of my family member who I know very well, so making correct interpretations was easy.
For my own self though, I do read with relative frequency, and I can tell you that it does aid me in understanding things.
Where do you believe the cards come from? Is it god? Is it the cards themselves?
Oh, the cards themselves are very
physical. It's not like the cards were sent from the divine realm to this one. The cards either come via being handcrafted by a human, being produced in a factory, or in some cases, even just printing it out.
Rather, the cards are something of a communication tool that connects to something higher. This communication is something that you as the reader will have to facilitate.
Whenever it is God, the Universe, Fate, Angel or Demon, or the cards themselves, is really up to your internal intuition and spiritual ideas and feelings that you can attribute to. It is something that will develop with your method and "sense" of the cards.
For me, since I printed a Major and Minor Arcana deck for myself, I spent a good number of hours to make them solid and not fimsy. I just use the method similiar to the one they used with divining mirrors, which is to focus and fill it with elemental and a few other energy types, then visualizing the cards themselves come to life, all connected by a glowing golden thread. So for example, my way more leans towards a construct/servitor approach to the cards.
I try to avoid swallowing the chunky snot that comes out though, I'm probably being ignorant, but I figure there's still live virus in those nasty ass huge globs of snot and white blood cells and the fewer inside me the better
Just trust in the hearts of cards

Can you recommend a book, website, or course on tarot that I can follow?
Yes. Also just wipe your damn eyes if it bothers you.
yeah I have the same problem, fixed it by moving down south
I have year around allergies so if I don't take my meds that is one of the first symptoms that I am in for a bad day.
I miss these days. They were the best. Now people drink a coke and that's considered a six flags ad. I feel so old.
the hair on the right side of my head is so wispy, annoying, and waves the wrong way, it really pisses me off and causes unnecessary stress, does anyone have experience with fixing shitty hair? It’s been annoying on that side of my head since as long as I can remember, I’m gonna try using a leave-in conditioner on it for a few days and see if that helps, but if it doesn’t then I don’t know, annoyed
my butt hurts. Right where the tail bone is, it hurts so much that I can't touch it and it hurts to sit down. It hurts right now to even more my hips.
butt is a cute word.
I've lurked a couple of discord chats for a week and now I know why I don't like them. It's too fast, chitchat focused, and you have nicknames assigned to everyone. It's not my style of interaction. On a IB you can read a post and come back to it hours, even days later to respond. On wizchan I can come back to a post weeks laters, hell, years later even. On a chat, the subject matter is too dynamic and individual messages don't matter as much. I won't be opening discord anymore.
For some reason I woke up and I'm feeling a bit too anxious, like if something bad was going to happen to me, that I'm been watched. Gotta cook anyways.
one of our dogs got a 3 inch long puncture on its belly two weeks ago from a nail sticking out alomg a gap in the fence
like imagine getting stabbed in the gut and seeing your muscles, every time you move it just opens up, if you were a dog i mean
they didnt take it to the vet but it's more or less completely healed already, just a little scab. animals have such a crazy healing ability, and they just lick their wounds without babying or being careful about their injury, it's ridiculous. i think it's because they bleed much less from skin injuries, this sog didn't bleed at all actually from that thing. i thought the dog would get an infection and end up dying or something
where? i've yet to found what you mention in your post
nice drawing. We should all draw pictures.
This is my self portrait.
Not seeing a problem.
It is just a fan cover. Looks like the dude put the time in to get the guitar part good too, since it was all one take and no shenanigans.
It's very likely that his is one of the best covers ever done. It's an amazing work both vocals and guitar.
Ok, calm down dude, it is ok but not "one of the best covers ever done".
What will actually fix my OCD/bipolar/schizo brain? I'm willing to try anything.
This was really stupid and bad but I still liked it.>>228946
Certainly not advice from anonymous strangers in the internet, many of whom are mentally ill themselves.
Nothing, but therapy can help you learn to live with your issues and have a relatively fulfilling life if you so wish.
Probably not what you want to hear but it is the truth of most chronic illnesses both physical and mental.
There isn't really a fix for it. It is just adapting and learning to cope with it in healthy ways.
What kind of therapy?
That I can't in good concuse advice on since I don't have exp with bipolar or schizo type stuff.
I do know that cognitive behavioral therapy works really good for OCD though.
It also helped me be able to work around my adhd without needing meds all the time.
Any other suggestions? I really need advice.

Sometimes I wonder if things like autism, paraphilia and identity dysphoria issues are just a triggered response of nature trying to deal with overpopulation by increasing unfitness in novel subtle ways
Probably not an original thought
I think there have been studies with other mammal species that suggest such a phenomenon. Hereditary and transmitted diseases only appeared in members of overly crowded environments but not in segregated subjects totaling the same number.
No. None I can recall after perusing a significant amount of the pertinent literature.
You are a loser like me. Maybe even worse. There is nothing to see here.
Waste your time and die.
no im not, i like myself
I like myself too and I can accept me for what I am, that's why I'm not afraid of saying I'm a loser.
The latter two are purely psychological and I do agree that they are partly caused by overpopulation, but many other factors contribute as well. Autism I really have no clue whether it's actually becoming more prevalent or if it's just a naturally occurring type of person that until now we never spent any time paying attention to.
liking and being happy with yourself makes you a winner. nothing else matters really.
i've been far more depressed than usual, it feels like ive hit a new low.
i feel like im really losing it this time
How can I fix this bipolar OCD brain? Please help
What is this? How will it help me?
It's just october and the temperature is already going close to 40ºC.

It's happening wizzies. The bug bite o something on my butt, right where the tailbone is, has popped or something. It's turned into a bubble and emits a clear liquid that smells like my butt. I've since washed myself, and I'm gonna bring this up with a nurse family member to get some input.
It still hurts constantly and I can't sit down. I no longer try to now, and I think it's better. I was rubbing it and it erupted, I think. After my shower, I believe it's no longer a bubble either, so it might be getting better.
