Yea modern browsers are bloated memory hogs, even when just loading old sites that display the same plain text since 1999. It's as if Youtube and other sites got too big for their own servers so they cut a deal with browser devs to offload much of the processing to the end user's machine. Someone who just uses imageboards like this has no reason to upgrade beyond Firefox 5.6 or even whichever Internet Explorer came with Win7, whereas Youtube will warn you and eventually stop working if you're 5 or 6 versions behind in Firefox or Chrome
There's also Youtube-DLG. It's a GUI for Youtube-DL so you don't have to type anything and can qeue up like 6 million playlists
you might benefit from so-called youtube proxies if you dont wanna bother copying and pasting and switch between programs to watch a video. for many you just put a prefix in front of youtube.com url, for example [nsfw]youtube.com, and you get directed to the raw video. im not sure if the problem is your browser eating ram, but playing the video file directly instead of using the youtube page should be less demanding
Thanks, someday i'll try it, there seems to be nothing but yt-dl itself in manjaro's appcenter, and right now i dont have the mental strength to learn appimage installation blackmagicfuckery.>>262405
Tried some, although they seem fishy. Yeah, they may be lighter than a full YT page, but the browser is the main problem i guess.
Also, i constantly check system monitor, because if ram hits 1.6 the whole os freezes, lol.
Sooner or later I'm going to have to start using linux, but I'm so fucking lazy.

bingo combo of corona isolation, being poor and a membership in a tin foil hats club
Do expand on how you felt any isolation from cornona at all because it has not affected me and I am guessing most people here socially at least.
- when the thing started i had no HDDs just flash drives
- hdds are expensive to buy new, if used i would have to meet with potentially infected people who dont give a fuck about masks
- i never order anything online+delivery
De expand on why you care about people wearing masks ot not I wish I had covid it would give me a reason to go outside and also make me feel I might get lucky and die.
Start ordering things online is this an autism thing for you I do not get why you would prefer to interact with people over use a computer.
>>262417>why you care
You know why and i don't need to argue about this.
Yes, trying not to leave any personal info online is an autism thing for me.
>I might get lucky and die
Why don't you use partial hanging?
I do not know why you care about some virus that the normfolk are screeching about for over a year now at all.
You sound liek a reddit user by complaining about people not using their mask.
console commands will be of great benefit if you wish to use linux
you can also use mpv for streaming youtube videos
It's not even deal cutting when youtube and chrome have the same owner.
lol the odds of catching it from a couple minutes interaction outside are pretty slim, do you intend to kiss them or something?
Masks don't do shit. i don't wear one. You are just a scared pussy.

Discord used to be a good platform the potential was there and the problems we had with it was the userbase that was already there.
Wizard types are less inclined to use discord because of all the zoomer bullshit that was going on including e drama.
I hear discord is getting cucked now but the good thing about discord was it was comparably safe and also you could make your own little servers with bots to help you have a fun time talking to a group whilst also being able to DM people easy.
I was watching kindgdom recently, (the one about MMA) and it made me realize that being a pro fighter is really the ideal job for me. You're basically unemployed and just work out all the time and then you put in 15 minutes of work and go fight some dude every couple of months and this allows you to say you're actually not unemployed. It's like the perfect scam. I think I'm gonna make a shot at it. I've seen the level of skill needed to make it to the big leagues and it's not that high.
Anyone here ever tried getting into amanuensis type of stuff? Like copying a book by hand?
Pre discord setting up your own group chat with multiple channels was quite difficult. You had to (pay for and) use mummble or team speak, give the server address and port. It was basic nerd stuff but that's still nerd stuff. Discord you click a button and you have a chat room and voice chat server, you can make several channels for different needs. And it's all free, where you can link someone and they can open it on a spyware install or use their browser (not sure how much that spies). So discord took off incredibly fast. Easy to use, good quality compared to other options and it just worked.. And now it's full of trannies asking pronouns when you check a server.>>262520
Until you get punched in the nose and die.
MMA is just modern wrestling. It's all fake as fuck and rigged. They throw a few jabs to get some colour then struggle cuddle to the agreed finish.
>Need a new hobby
I've outgrown warhammer and video games. I can't find anything new I'd like to invest my time in
It's hard for me to make an original thread without it turning into some blog post, thank god for anti-crawl threads.>>262548>I've outgrown warhammer and video games. I can't find anything new I'd like to invest my time in
Warhammer as in the table top game? If so why not try to build some other scale models? Try /hob/ it has some good ideas for wizard hobbies I think. One hobby it is missing is for electronics though, I may start that later on.
I have gone through a few different modeling genres and short handed it to warhammer there. I can't get the same spark any more, I even tried 3D printing to avoid giving money to companies I didn't like. I ended up printing lots of models but never working on them after that.
I was browsing it. Nothing clicked. Maybe I'm an old dog and these are my tricks.
>>262501>Why Discord became a thing if there was Skype already?
Because you have channels for pretty much everything, it's like irc chat for zoomers, now with file sharing and group call capabilities.
just bumped into my new neighbors who are femme. I think they're in their 20s, but I'm not sure because of the masks the government with the help of the police are forcing us to wear, but one thing is sure and that is they're petite, like 4'9 petite. They both look trashy, as the two of them have dyed hair and from what I seen they like to stay up all night playing loud music and being as noisy as possible. Both of them were in their pajamas, but the one who came downstairs to open the door was wearing an unpleasant strawberry perfume. I know this because she left the stairs with a tray of smell. The other succ who I think is her roommate or perhaps just a friend who visited her for the weekend was with her tall tattoed boyfriend, this succ in question had her hair partially dyed red.
I opened the door for them because I was entering, and the guy was the only one who thanked me while the succs kept silent, and then I saw them go. It annoyed me a bit to see this succ leaving in her pink pajamas and looking just like the pink panther, it felt like watching a freak dirtying the lifeless gray of the pavement, probably to buy something for breakfast.
Something tells me this succs gonna be trouble.
Thank you for your answers.
Um, so is it like this:
-you can make a public chatroom that is searchable or just placed on the main page like Twitch
-or you can make it private and hanlde out links to whoever you want
please keep us informed on how every fucking bitch in your household smells, crabbo
No one cares>>262565
You can do both. You can make a public room and give out the link every where and any where, including public profiles. You can also make it private and only give the link to your friends and have the link expire after a short time.
has anyone here been tested for covid for one reason or another? i pity the fools who have to get that stick shoved up their nose multiple times every week at work, school, airports etc.
Go to hell retard. I'm used to have a family as my apartment neighbors, and not two crazy succs, it feels odd and wrong.
when a big black diva nurse sits in the men's restroom doorway at the wageslave dungeoun denying entry to any wiz that doesn't drop his pants and spread cheeks for the lightly wiped-down aluminium butt swab, you'll miss the weekly Q-tip in the nose
yeah ive seen that and wondered how long until it's standard in the west, and the retards just passively tolerate it.
Nose is fine, it's not a deep swab. The throat is much worse because you have to do it for a while and it makes you gag. Covid and gagging are a bad mix.

Walking brings clarity
clarity fosters wisdom
a blanket makes comfy
a wise man clear of mind wrapped up in a blanket after a walk is positivity incarnate
don't settle on one, take a walk you may find it opens your brain up to more learnings and other smart stuff, maybe some feel goods too
Independent of the poll I posted, what do you think I should focus on?
should I focus on riding horses, eating broccoli or hermeticism? please respond.
tomorrow can't come soon enough. I will have burgers for lunch and it's been a month since I had one so it's gonna be supreme.
I want to buy one of these mines and live in it. Maybe put up some walls floors and ceilings and make a labyrinth. But make the architecture change as you go deeper into it, like one level looks like office space and the next looks like a series of apartments connected to each other and then you have a brick catacomb level. I'd live at the very center in a control room with cameras connected everywhere throughout the place.
broccoli for sure. broccoli will bring you most happiness

I dreamt it was the last day of school but it happened differently because in my dream I hadn't changed schools. After recess me and two other guys, one who was my friend back then and other who changed schools like me and whom I never liked because he was quite antisocial, were making plans. We were going to meet my friend at his house, and we wanted to save as much time as possible, but recess happened so fast that we barely talked, it was just a small conversation where we said we'd meet after school and that was it. It felt like I was being pushed into the future, and school ended at 12 am. I was really late to class and I thought it did not matter, since there was really no class, and so when I asked the teacher if I could come in I thought there would be no problem, but she ignored me and gave me a look of disgust and anger and dissapointment, but the class respected me or liked me for some reason, in real life, nobody gave a shit because in my new school I avoided everyone and didn't make friends, since by that time, everyone had already grown into a full normalfag and to befriend a normalfag or fit in among them, you have to be one yourself or at least like them. In the dream, the class stopped paying attention, not like they were much interested to begin with, to the teacher giving a talk, and I used that chance to ask with a firm voice if I could come in. She gave me permission, but I did not enter through the door, I did it through the window showing some athleticism, which was weird, but I guess that in my head, that was being defiant. I was someone different in this dream, more confident, but just as immature and confused, I could feel it. I could feel all these emotions I used to have back then, I was quite alive and yet knew myself as someone who had already been defeated by life but had decided to live out of curiosity and for the sake of it. I was anxious during that day, because the teachers hated me and I was afraid I was going to flunk. In real life, the last day of school felt somewhat refreshing.
It was a weird but interesting dream, because none of this happened in real life. In real life, I wasn't going to meet with anybody, I just went straight home. I still remember driving the bus back home, looking at the other group of kids from different schools, so happy because school had ended, and I was happy too, because I'd decided to take a gap year, and my parents had agreed to it. Now, that gap year became 7, and I never went to college or university. Life can be so funny.

Traitor, it took me mere 5 minutes to upload this post.
My wizmom arrived at 10pm and she brought pizza, muffins, pastries, and different snacks. I watched a movie and ate that and by the time I was going to sleep I had already changed my mind about the burgers. Today for breakfast I had pizza from yesterday, and now I'm not sure if I should cook or order some burgers.
Almost eleven for me, and I still have these dreams, every once in a while.
I want to be friends with someone (online), but I think he doesn't like me very much. It makes me sort of sad because I like him.

i dont want to know how much fucking ram and gpu power that shit needs to even render a static image of a single character in an otherwise empty scene. and a fluid animated realtime scene with lighting and realistic scene, etc? add in ai? you would need a fucking supercomputer for this shit
Why should I want an AI that appears human?
They obviously gonna just stream you the picture from their servers.
Sidenote. I still can't forget how in around 2011 there was a startup with a website where i actually played a demo of latest assassins creed and nfs IN A FUCKING WEB BROWSER FROM MY SHITTY THINKPAD LAPTOP. Then something like SONY bought them put the thing down.>>262754

What do finance wizzies think about the S&P 500? Are we due for another correction soon?
certain markets are in a bubble but it is incredibly obvious at a glance, so you can invest safely still i think
There's a female twitch streamer called codemiko who streams a realtime rendered unreal engine scene with a newish generation model. She has a full motion capture suit for her whole body, motion capture gloves, a decent rig, and a facial recognition motion cap using a new iphone. From the description it was under $50k. Motion capped realistic models aren't out of reach for small companies these days. With those kind of models that stuff seems very viable. I think the AI really isn't anywhere near ready considering the products the AI companies offer to business and healthcare are still very poor. I am quite confused at the lack of progress around virtual waifus considering how much money people spend elsewhere on more degenerate things.

do yall get that slight hearing loss after a big nut? high pitch sounds gradually fade away and you are left with something strange… it's like you are listening to noise through a wall, it's not like the volume is simply lowered, it transforms the actual sound
does anyone know how i could achieve this effect in something like audacity? i was thinking while under the effect, i could play a bunch of tones at different pitches and subjectively score their clarity to build up a chart, which when compared to a normal chart, i could maybe apply the different to an audio sample via an equalizer setting
>>262762>look up pics>seems like paid messages appear on her shirt
that's so stupid
no but I get random ear ringing from caffeine or too many ibuprofens, but then I just activate one of the acupressure points in the earlobe and it goes away in seconds, I don't remember where I learned that but it was in 2000
actual hearing loss from orgasm is obviously a medical problem, you sound really fucked up, I would be scared if I were you
>>262768>ear ringing from caffeine or too many ibuprofens
you sure it's not due to laying down in a pose that twists your neck or block arteries (but you dont feel it high on painkillers)?
I don't know about America but in the UK that seems to work. There used to be a documentary on youtube showing lots of dudes from India who kept saying they had no passport; I think they claimed to be from Sudan or something where they couldn't be deported to as well. Maybe it was a country that wasn't accepting people back because they couldn't confirm who was a citizen. The police would arrest them, send them to the immigration court, and they'd just walk back out to the street.
I guess being white would help. Even if i was much worse with English i could just mumble words like an insane person.
"Yeah i'm from Nevada, lost everything. Shit sucks, officer, that's life."
If they have no way to identify you then they have no way to deport you back home. It's a common trick for immigrants to pull >>262771
Being homeless isn't fun. You're likely to end up murdered or beaten up regularly. You spend all your time hunting for food and shelter with little peaceful rest. If you want to roam get a van and live out of it for a few months.
You would be going from one third-world hellhole to another tbh. I wouldn't even classify the USA as first world anymore. Not since the 90s.
I've seen some documentaries where they provide decent shelter for homeless. A wiz here posted about churches givin out tons of food and stuff.>>262778>end up murdered or beaten up regularly.
What about major ok cities where homeless camp on the sidewalks and no one can do shit about it but attach spikes on benches?
Anyway it would be a cooler place to die.
Hey, is there a place in great canyon where you can jump off without sage nets?
wizbro no offense but you just admitted to using acupuncture points to cure tinnitus, you shouldnt give medical advice. quick google seems to suggest it's not uncommon and probably just a result from powerful orgasms
I don't twist my neck or lie down in any poses, whatever that means. There's actually a medical reason for it I don't remember but you can google it and it's not particular to me, hearing loss and/or ear ringing is a side effect everyone gets from painkillers, most notably prescription ones. Look what happened to rush limbaugh. Caffeine also affects the auditory nerves that way somehow.>>262782
occasional temporary ear ringing is not tinnitus and I was sharing an anecdote, not giving medical advice, which shouldn't bother you anyway because the way you worded that you apparently think pressure points are just pseudo-science
>>262780>I've seen some documentaries where they provide decent shelter for homeless.
You're kidding, right? Going to a shelter will get you raped, beaten or even murdered in some cases. That is after all of your stuff is stolen. Idk what the documentary was that you watched, but it's probably not representative of homeless shelters in general.
Don't go to shelters but the free food places are okay.
Cities are all dangerous for the homeless. You're an idiot trying to kill himself because you heard America is the land of milk and honey. Where are you from? Somalia?
Shelters are fine for a night or two when weather is extreme, but you have to watch your shit like a hawk or all of it will be stolen.
You are right in that food places are alright.
>>262783>pressure points are just pseudo-science
In the comtext of acupuncture they most certainly are.
and not a single fuck was given that day

This site is filled with stupid redditors and succubi, we all know that.
It's a doc about a shelter for homeless young people in US. I've seen it long ago and don't remember details, just posted as an example for the ongoing conversation here. I think they even have separate rooms in this shelter, that's something, right?
I'm not sure why I only get along with boomers. Maybe it's because they aren't as retarded as other people my age? I feel like young people are always wanting more out of life, never satisfied. The elderly have already lived those years, and realize that time is finite and nothing lasts forever.

Do you live somewhere very humid?
I googled it and it says 95% humidity in my city. Sounds high.
Sounds like hell
humidity above 50% it's already bothersome.
If you could go back in time to any age and live your life again with the knowledge you have now, would you?
Assume that 99% of world history plays out the same way except for any changes you make to your personal life and those you know.
I've been debating that with myself over the past couple of weeks on my walks. On one hand, I could become a billionaire (not that I want to), but on the other hand, it was my failures that actually taught and inspired my siblings and neighbors to do better themselves. So if I don't make the humiliating mistakes, then they could do it and their lives will suffer. Is one person having a better life at the expense of 4 others better than me living my humiliating life and 4 others becoming better because of it?
I think I would go back in time to my tenth birthday, BUT I would continue to make the same mistakes until I am about 30. In fact, I would probably make better mistakes if that makes sense, so maybe they learn the lessons better. In the mean time, I would secretly correct a lot of bad things I've personally been doing that has left a lot of regret and pain, such as fix my bad diet, start lots of hobbies (especially drawing and piano), secretly invest in a few early stocks to make a bit of money once I get my part-time job, exercise, etc. I know now that desperately chasing succubi and friends is a waste of time, so I would probably be more of a "loner/loser" than the fool I was before. I also know that university was a hellish waste of time for me, so I would probably not take it seriously and invest all that extra time and money into improving myself, and money from the job I end up getting can go into stocks, land (secretly buy my neighbor's house) and bitcoin. Once I'm 30, most of my siblings and neighbors have become established in their successful lives, so then I can start to "come out" and live my own life, but hopefully retired and in better health and with more money and talent to enjoy things. The funny thing is, even in this scenario, I'm not sure I would bother with succs even if I had everything to my advantage. One of the great things about growing old is you are no longer controlled by your dick. If only I knew this way back then, so I would not have wasted so much time. As the saying goes, "youth is wasted on the young".
I mean all you need to know is stocks and sports events before bitcoin, and then bitcoin.
So i don't know what part time jobs are you talking about.
The dilemma for me sould be that i definitely need to go early childhood to prevent some things that fucked me up in the long run, but that means i'll need to spend around 13 years in a pretty boring setting until cool stuff and opportunities appear.
Even if you could predict everything in your timeline you would no longer be in that timeline. You don't know if calling your friend 5 minutes later or earlier than you previously did would end up in them being hit by a car. Then their family because drug addicts to deal with the grief and start to destroy your community. Small events changing can make huge changes.>>262863
You could also bring your illnesses back with you. How would life change if you took covid back to 1996?
I assume we're talking about in-body time travel (like The Butterfly Effect movie).
That also brings up the question: can a childs brain sustain the amount of 30 years of knowledge?
at least the heat doesn't make your water pipes burst and your toes fall off
Yeah well the cold won't burn your skin or kill your pc.
There's a reason there are motherfuckers roaming in the sahara deserts but not on the north pole
…sh-shup up, baka!
Your skin doesn't get burned just from passive heat, even in 100 degree F weather. You have to touch hot things or stay in the sun for that, both of which can be easily avoided. Contrast this with extreme cold weather, where you quickly suffer pain just by sitting in your room doing nothing, if the heat isn't turned up enough. And if you actually have to go outside the pain is immediate, especially if the wind is high.
As for computers, my laptop functions just fine in hot weather so long as I don't try to play graphically intensive games. Maybe you need to replace your thermal paste.
I had a part time job where I just squandered thousands on consoomer nonsense and worse. If I had just put that into early stocks of Apple or Amazon, they could easily be worth a few hundred thousand today.
I envy your boring life, but would you not want to take that opportunity to do something better to make future life easier, even in private like drawing or learning a language?>>262864
I was a child before cell phones so that's not a concern, but I don't think minor changes will have much difference in the overall scheme. For example, me learning piano is not going to change 9/11. There will be minor differences in my personal life since I am changing a few things, but I don't think those differences will change anything significantly since I am still going to be living life mostly the same way I did.>>262866
Yeah, you wake up in your child body. I would say a child's brain can since they are just sponges at that age. In your 30s/40s you probably forgot more than the child brain can absorb.
New Game+ is like my biggest fantasy but the truth is it would somehow end up even worse, knowing my luck. In spite of knowing and remembering everything, or perhaps because of it, things would turn out worse because of the butterfly effect.
That part is when the daydream ends and I feel stupid.
Or you could have put that into Enron stocks and they could easily be worth nothing today.
I guess yeah, you'll need to endure a job to save up if you can't loan/steal your parents savings and bet on some soccer championship finals. Or find a single stock that surged high in one day.>I envy your boring life
Eh, why? Most of my childhood/teen years i didnt have a computer nor internet. I doubt old console games would entertain me now, and there was not much of them available where i lived. Playing with stupid children would be torture.
What's left is literature and drawing, yes. Dunno how long can i ride on that.
Obviously i would not sweat about school grades or even try college - so much mental pain avoided just by that.
With money i would make my parents life easier and probably start a gamedev company.>>262882

Excuse the autism but I've been a modeler for 20 whatever years now. Gunpla is baby's first models and the community around them is about on par with it. It's a shame as the models are really nice and they have such varied designs, but they're just not very indepth modelers. Dioramas are easy to make and you can make a nice one with little more than bark and stryofoam if you really want to do it. >>263017
Good kits like this take a lot of work, 20 to 40 hours easy depending on the models size. Building is just the tutorial to dealing with all the issues models have to make them look "real". In my experience very few models are loved once they're finished. You can enjoy the process but after hour 35 you're ready to set fire to it and want to move onto the next project. >>263019
I've wanted to make a Gundam photo novel for years now but I've lost my modeling drive. I have 30 kits in my closet ready to build and I can't push myself to do it. It sucks.>>263043
There's lots of weird mobile armours and ships bandai some times reprint. RG Zeong is cool.>>263046
This guy gets it. Here's a link to a torrent of all the modeling magazines released digitally this past month. There's some awesome military models while gunpla is lucky if someone didn't use their own cum to glue the model together.https://1337x.unblockit.link/torrent/4770877/Modelling-Magazines-2021-01/
>>263074>not very indepth modelers
I don't see anything in those mags that have anything beyond in terms of quality compared to the best Gundam dioramas I've seen. I guess it's like you said, a lot of people get into the hobby with Gundam stuff, so there will be a lot of shitty dioramas of it and poorly assembled models, but the very good ones are just as good as the ones people are doing with model tanks and battleships. In fact if you check some gunplan japanese channels on yt, there's a lot of overlap with gundam and military sets, it's possible the best military and gunpla stuff out there is actually made by the same person.
Now this is my personal taste but military models look terribly uninteresting to me. I guess there's just not enough fantasy to them for me to care. They look impressive but I don't feel like spending my time hoarding pictures of them like I do with Gundam dioramas. I guess that's the gunpla appeal for you.
>I've wanted to make a Gundam photo novel for years now but I've lost my modeling drive. I have 30 kits in my closet ready to build and I can't push myself to do it. It sucks.
Do you have any pictures of your stuff you can share? I would love to see some wizardly assembled models.
The top tier of Gunpla is on par with the military guys, there's a lot of cross over at that level. It's the lower tiers which suffer from low quality models. The average military tank builder will paint and maybe do a little weathering on their model. They will learn to paint figures to go with them and all that jazz. The average Gunpla builder will snap fit their kits and maybe panel line them. The kit I attached is an example of slightly above average because it has decades applied.
Gunpla dioramas at their best are great. The one you attached is awesome. There's another of a Zaku holding up a bridge which I really like. Due to the low skill ceiling in Gunpla more dioramas end up being sub par as well. It's frustrating because as you said, they have huge potential and look really cool.
Gunpla suffers some what because of it's English community being mostly on reddit, 4chan and weird facebook groups. It's slowly gaining mainstream modeling acceptance and Bandai star wars kits really opened the flood gates for people to try bandai kits and move into
I've played enough armored core to know that's not a gundam
It's a transgundam, please don't bully Dom-chan
don't be a fag
that's armored core, those mech parts have in-game model names I could google the names of if I needed to
Why don't you stay at home?
There was a line of armoured core kits which failed to get any traction. Those parts are kitbashed from armoured core and a few other places from Gundam. The base model is a Dom Tropen
Wait that's not a painting? Holy shit
It's a scan from a magazine I think. Either way it's real, if you look close at the waterfall you can see the cotton wool they used to get the white broth on it.
I've been stuck inside for about 5 days due to the winter storm, havne't showered since sunday as I still have no water. Been making my way through a small pile of books i have had next to my desk in the meantime, life's not that bad. Everyone else in the city has lost their minds apparently.
prefabricated cigarettes are shit, if you're cumming yourself over one of those then wait'll you try rolling tobacco, the quality is extremely higher
You're making a huge mistake, wiz
Because we should be wanting to stay on this wretched plane of existence for any longer than necessary right?
I say enjoy that pack brother, eveyrone else can take a hike.
If you're not going to kill yourself at 40 at least, then don't mess with smoking. Don't add more misery to the thing you described as "wretched plane of existence".
Why? Cause of cancer? Do you stop enjoying every single vice just because of some negative side effect?
There's a very low chance you'd develop cancer from smoking, but that's not my point.
Your existence is already terrible as it is, when you get older you'll start noticing the side effects of smoking, I witnessed that in my dad and I won't wish that on anyone. It's your choice in the end, I just don't want you to be miserable like my dad on top of having a miserable existence being a wizard.
I see we only have rich wizkids here nowadays if nobody cared to mention how expensive smoking has become. How much you paid for the pack? 8 or so bucks? If you're buying 3 packs a week that's almost a 100 bucks a month. Not to mention your body creates tolerance towards nicotine, so you'll be increasing this amount continuously.
Now, even if money is not a problem you probably should quit anyway. It's not about dying sooner, that's not important. The problem with smoking is that you'll feel like shit more often because of addiction and hardened lungs.>>263153
Man. I remember watching Jackass when I was a kid. Those guys felt like they could go on being young forever.
Did they fire him?
notice how you just assume he;s smoking for nicotine, lol, that dumbass meme is lodged in your mind so deep, nicotine nicoti9ne nictonine blah blah blah
nobody smokes for any other reason
Meanwhile in his post: >>263144>No wonder people are addicted>the subtle euphoria>the nicotine gets me
I don;t know what youre referring to. People get euphoria and addicted to lots of things that don't have nicotine.
I'll spell it out simpler to you. In his post, he lists a bunch of feelings you would typically get from nicotine, and then states that he is worried he will become addicted to "nicotine".
nicotine isn't that addictive
i stopped smoking cigs pretty easily once you get the mouth rot and tooth decay coming in it becomes a hard pass very easily
Yeah, but usually it's better to not have any mouth rot and tooth decay at all.
i removed all distractions from my life to try and be more productive, i sold my pc and got a flip phone instead of iphone, and now i spend less time on electronics but instead i just lay down and stare at the ceiling for hours on end. i cannot muster the will to do anything productive
Wizzie shouldn't you have figured it out what you wanted to dedicate yourself to before getting rid of your computer?
And what exactly is your definition of productivity?
Why do they have to make noise all the time, door slamming, stomping, chair dragging, kids screaming, and cocks are everywhere rural or city?
Is it weird to not want to have a cock crowing outside your window at 2am till evening, and have a bunch of cock fighting thugs potential criminals gather around your area? In a super crowded concrete jungle where everyone basically lives in a concrete box?
Either me or them are insane
I wonder if it would be a bad idea to bulk prepare pb&j sandwiches.
Eating prepackaged food is making me fat but I'm too tired to consistently prepare real food, especially if it makes dirty dishes and requires prep.
I could also just buy protein bars or something but that can get kinda spendy.
They're animals, what do you expect?
Many of them are in debt and are living paycheck to paycheck.
You can eat anything you want as long you're ingesting less calories than you're burning. You can eat Mcdonald's everyday and still lose weight.
If you're worried about overeating, here's a good idea: eat less food.
I love it when they post that kind of stuff as if looking for some form of validation, truth is, they still live in mud huts.
You do know that caloric densicty is a thing right?
A full pound of leafy greens has far less calories then a ounce of butter for example.
What you eat does in fact matter, since some foods are far easier to over eat then others.
You could in theory eat Mcdonalds and lose weight, but you will feel like shit, preform like shit, and be starving half the time.
Like most wizards I dislike suffering, so food choice is important if I want to lose weight again without feeling like shit all the time or feeling like I am starving.
PB&J has good macros and I can suplement with fruit to hit most micro nutrition, while being easy to meal prep.
My main consern is if the sandwitches will keep if made in bulk throughout the week or if they will turn into gross mush.
I guess I could freeze like those crustable things, but then I would have to time the thaw out of them.
Or try microwaving them, but that could also turn them into mush too.
For this to be a way to be lazy about meal prep it's seeming like there might be some experimentation involved.>>263209
You should eat less dick.
You're right. I didn't advise you to eat Mcdonald's every day btw, I was just stating the most important fact about weight loss I guess.
I lost 45 pounds (20 kilograms) in a 8 or 9 months period 3 years ago. I found a calorie counter online and religiously recorded every single thing I had. I was trying very hard not go over 1k calories daily. It does the trick. I didn't really mind what I was eating to be honest, as long as at the end of the day I wasn't over 1k calories. That was my lazy approach to it. It was easier for me to have only the number at the end of the day to care about.
The only thing I actively avoided was soda because a single can of that can really put a dent on your 1k limit like nothing else. It wasn't too hard for me because I didn't really changed my diet all that much, I just reduced the quantities of everything.
Wow, 1k calories is a pretty steep cut.
The lowest I can go for more then a few days is ~1700 before I start suffering negative effects. But I have a somewhat physical job and hobbies so that might be why.
Did you supplement with vitamins during or did you manage to get everything you needed despite having so little to work with?
Might be it. I was neet back then and my hobbies physically consist of clicking the mouse, so basically I burned as much calories as a potted plant pretty much. I had to cut very low because of that. The ideal calorie intake for me to lose weight at the time I believe the site suggested 1500s or so.>Did you supplement with vitamins
Not at all. I'm also poor as fuck, I wouldn't spend any money on food supplements.
I don't think I need it anyway, my diet is pretty balanced I think. I also can't afford to spend on junk food, so that helps a lot, too.
Some people really go insane over losing weight.
>>263224>Do you guys have problems with building up a backlog of projects that just sit for years before you get to them?
Kinda>How would you/do you deal with this?
First step is stop wasting money on stuff you'll never get around to read/do/play.
Second and final step is to focus on one or two things ONLY. still working on that second step myself
Not seeing any insanity related to the topic in this thread.
You mean in general?
I've somehow been watching the same The Sopranos youtube clips for the past 3 years.
Just do it faggot.
And post the scale models here. We can pick which one you build next.
i want to read more books and lift more. i removed every electronic in my life except my school laptop that im posting on, and now instead of playing vidya or shitting up the boards i am just staring at the ceiling or laying down with my dog. i just cant do anything
You choose to do nothing, you could choose to do something
not him, but if you're depressed or or suffer from anxiety, you can't do much though. Life is hard.
You're still choosing not to do anything. Depression doesn't physically pin you to the bed and refuse to let you move. Anxiety doesn't either. Both are issues you can address with life style changes and exposure therapy. You're choosing to do nothing.
>>263238>doesn't physically pin you to the bed and refuse to let you move. Anxiety doesn't either.
I don't suffer from anxiety, but I have seen people have panic attacks who suffered from anxiety and they are very much pinned down and can't do anything for a good while until it subsides.
Panic attacks are no joke man. They can be as debilitating as migraines as far as I can tell.
>>263238>You're choosing to
oh boy here we go again, the ever recurring wizchan 'does free will exist' debacle event for the millionth time is soon to come.
But the panic subsides and you learn how to talk yourself out of panic attacks. Anxiety disorders suck but they are treatable with support. It's a choice to not treat them.
Fuck you and burn in hell. I'm homeless because of autism, depression and anxiety. You have no idea what mental illness does to a person. Please go jump off a bridge.
Not him but I've had severe depression and anxiety and I was able to cure it. Your problem is that you're a fatalist. You're homeless because of your choices.
You're homeless because of your attitude and excuses. exposure therapy is hard but it works
Just fuck off already
Are you the guy who tells everyone they should leave because their family doesn't hate them?
Which clips? I have a couple of favorites too. Like that "take off your hat" bit
Some people are capable of creating such beauty, I only bring uglyness into this world
You can't call someone a faggot anymore without getting banned, now that is my problem.
It's like elementary school where you tell on someone for saying bad words and saying your feelings are hurt because of a bad meany head.
You're not allowed to say naughty words but in most games you can still be very "toxic". I've been reported by many people for hurt feelings or offensive stuff but never banned across multiple games and forums. Just as long as you don't use the bad words, you'll be fine. In fact I've gotten some of my targets banned because they retaliated in the forbidden language.
I vacuumed and mopped my room and cleaned the furniture. Mr Peterson, I dedicate today's cleaning to you.
Dude, you go out of your way to get banned and come here bragging about it every month or so.
You even regularly get banned here for dumbshit.
You just like being a edgy retard who gets a reaction out of other people then play the victim when people have had enough of your shit and ban/report you for being a annoying faggot.
Yeah he's a p cool guy i dislike him at first but he says sum good shit
I have and probably will never be a fan, but I find a lot of hate directed to him to be irrational. His views are really mild and he hasn't said anything super offense. I can get not liking him or his content, mostly because I don't like it either, but the strong vehement hatred I don't think has anything to do with what he actually says or who he actually is.
he's a self help guru who came out of nowhere, that alone is highly suspicious. how he got successful as a public speaker is also a mystery: his voice is horrendous, he has little charisma, he's unfunny and so on. his private life with the drug use, hospital stay in russia, his weird daughter… it's like a joke that keeps on giving. he's more intringuing as a phenomenon, a sign of the times, and not someone one should take at face value.
I agree with his point though :/
Lord help me… I'm visiting my dad and drunk uncle. They think I have a job and a place to live when really I'm a neet who has been sleeping in an abandoned barn dowm the road. My dad left for the night because his sexual outlet was having withdrawls. My uncle went to bed. I told them both I'd be gone by 8pm to catch the bus home, ze.
What I really did was move my bag and laptop to the non-functional bathroom in the back room of this old farmhouse they live in. The toilet's been disconnected but the sink works. There's an electric oil heater here. The plan was to sit here until morning, giving my devices and battery packs a good charge while pirating some songs and anime with their Wifi to watch when I return to the barn.
Buy my uncle woke up, drunk, and is now watching TV in the back room. He's angry too, I heard him belittling the cat. There's a paper-thin temporary wall between us. The door is locked.
There is no way out. There is a good chance he will try to enter the bathroom to check the oil heater or piss in the sink. An equally good chance he will rip the door off its lock. My stuff isn't packed so I can't just jump outta window, and the floor is so squeeky and the floorboards go under the temp wall and under the couch (which isn't on legs) so he'd feel the vibrations. There's no way to pack up or even stand without startling the hoard. He keeps getting up to check the woodstove and everytime he does I feel the halves of my brain split a little.
What am I to do? Best case scenario he goes to sleep and I continue my downloads. He had a nap though and is out of beer so that's hours away. He knows my dad is gone so he might dial a hooker, in which case I will sneak out then set the house on fire. If he catches me in here though it's game over. My whole operation will be blown. They will have the police send me to the psyche ward. My dad has security cameras in the back room so he can catch my uncle beating his prostitute on video, so even exploiting my druncle's uncen state and exploding out the door wearing the curtain as a robe and screaming like a wraith isn't an option because they'd play the recording and see me, not going to work, and then go the extra mile and assume I was jerking off in the dark bathroom. And now the rats are active in the walls, creating even more interest in this back bathroo.
I'm no stranger to sitting on a toilet with my pants up for hours waiting for someone to go away, but this is too dangerous. Send good spells, Wizards.
Just say you missed the bus and you were on your computer trying to get someone to pick you up on social media.
And if he asks why you didn't use your phone, say it's out of battery or no connection or something. If they see you coming out of the bathroom say you were washing your face and you were planning on leaving again because you found a ride (that explains why you had your backpack on you in the bathroom).
And it's probably best if you leave before your dad gets home. It should be much easier to fool a drunk uncle than a horny dad.
Hey btw, if you want a place to use wifi, check the public library's schedule. They might not be open right now, but when they do reopen, it'll be a good place to use the wifi. You won't get chased out or anything either. There was a homeless guy at the library I used to volunteer at who was there every day to check his email and stuff on the library desktops.
Also, lots of libraries require a library card to use the wifi, but don't let that discourage you because the card is usually free. They just use the card so they know who is late on returning books or getting them ISP letters. Speaking of ISP letters, pirating anime should be fine on library wifi, but pirating songs definitely won't be. If you want music, check the library and see if they got a CD section. I know the library I was at had a really large CD collection for music, and even a lot of cassettes. If the library doesn't have the song you're looking for, you can check the catalogue on a desktop to see if it's in any other libraries in your county, and then you can request it to your library if it is.
Youtube's ads are getting more aggressive as they try to get around adblock.
Had to add filters, update everything, and even add in a secondary ad blocker.
This arms race between companies wanting to shove adds in my face and the ability for ad blockers to keep up is so tiresome.
I haven't had any issues with ublock origin. The only thing that gets past is the ads that are incorporated into the video itself as 'sponsors'.
Really? I just use adblock plus and it works like a charm, haven't seen jewtube ads in ages
Well now I use Ublock and adblock plus. Hasn't caused any slowdown despite the bloat of running two similar plugins at once.
For the time being that seems to have fixed it, along with adding like 8 different updated block list and re-installing everything.
Probably only bought myself another month of peace.
Why doesn't google just use widevine DRM to protect the videos with the ads?
I don't know what you're doing wrong wiz, I've only ublock installed and haven't seen a single ad for 6 years.
tfw your neighbors are being noisy and you could just close your window but you can't because you're farting and it'd be like trapping yourself in a gas chamber.
if your ass gas is so dangerous then use it against the neighbours. find their furnace intake and let r rip, no survivors, not even the elderly
grow out the hair and beard forever. only problem is having to brush it a lot daily.>>263388
I've been spending a bit of time on Reddit lately. I've come up with a weird theory and wonder if any one else has noticed it. I'm going to call it content villages and the castle.
Reddit has a lot of subs and general content flowing through it, like all social media platforms most people are only going to see this side of it. They see celebrities doing AMAs or laugh at funny posts and move on with their lives. These are the content barons, pretty much all apolitical and just want a space they can talk shop with like minded people. They are for the most part worthless to any one but their own niche. They're the village surrounding the castle.
In the castle sits all the SJWs, the feminists and the protected leftists (the theory isn't political, it's just how Reddit works). Subs like r/twox, trolling streamers and others which constantly attack people will leak into the village to witch hunt wrong think in the comments most the village doesn't read. These elites use the village as their public image, Reddits just the place Arnie posts about body building, Bill Gates does the secret santa and you can see all of these cool NERDY THING there. The castle is infested with the absolute worst scum possible, they're vampires constantly kidnapping and killing people in the village below. Any time someone attacks the castle they run into the village and scream bloody murder how everyone's being mean to the village. The second the coast is clear they run back into the castle and start to devour more and more of the villagers. It's how feminists say "We only want equality" and then claim trannies are men/succubi and succubi deserve more etc. but that's warped into a more modern version where the very top of the pile are millionaires able to fund select artists or content creators and hook them up with new life styles and free swag as long as they keep the village alive and don't mind the off person being destroyed in the background.
I've probably butchered explaining this. It's just an observation built on the old feminist behavior pattern I explained before. The difference being that now it's evolved to the larger internet where vicious "trolls"/political actors are using general hobbyists as shields in ways I've not seen before. It's an evolution of an old technique adapted to the internet age and I expect to see more often in the future. Elite circles using "influencers" to create semi legitimate content communities to create umbrellas for their assassin circle to shade under.
i know that feeling, anon. God bless.
Sort of like a motte and bailey.
That's the term I couldn't remember. Just like that but now it's more evolved.
I always love it when wageslaves act out. Fucking clowns.
>>263481>they charge the customer almost a $4 delivery fee and we don't see any of it.
Is this true?
Lazy nigger. Delivering pizzas is one of the easiest jobs you can have. Even easier now that delivery people are just leaving food at the door without interacting with the person due to the flu. >>263489
They're getting paid a salary so no.
That's funny you can get a fucking pizza for 4 dollars where I live.
you can technically get a pizza for a dollar but it won't be good ingredients
I meant from a pizzeria, of course I can (and often do) make pizza for less than a couple of bucks
Watched one of those videos from stupid youtubers with cartoon avatars "analizing" videogames and now all I get in my feed are videos like those. Next time I feel curious about watching something I'll just log out.
I've decided to use uMatrix to block images on most websites in order to protect myself from the wiles of the digital succubi.

It helps to go to your watch history on Youtube and remove the offending video, and then when similar videos appear on the homepage you click the option icon beside it and tell YT to not reccomend videos from that channel
