reposting from last thread:
Had a weird feeling last night of being "watched" and being under some kind of pressure as I was sleeping/half awake, like something was literally on my chest. It spooked me to the point of turning the desk lamp on to get back to sleep.

Sorry for the crappy description, has anyone experienced something resembling this? I kinda wish it would happen again.

I think I have developed a paradoxical reaction. I spent my whole life in front of my pc, it's the only thing that relaxed and interested me. But now what happens is I can feel the stress and anxiety actually build up if i do what i've been doing these past years, that is browsing the net and such…I think I guilt-tripped myself into thinking that I have to do something useful all the time instead of wasting all my time, and I can't relax anymore. Well, my mental state is completely fucked now. Gonna go to a mental hospital soon actually, i'm on benzo meds and still barely holding together with anxiety and depression. Even though life always sucked, I already miss the days where I could pass the time doing nothing and feeling decent…seems like I'm past my limit.

Isn't it weird that the west value individualism so much yet need to do everything in groups? Apparently eating alone in restaurants is a big taboo. Also they demand to eat in groups in a Japanese ramen store originally intended for singles who unfortunately have catered to them

the obsession with individuality in culture is bad. Because when individuality is spread as an ideal, those who are not individual minded will attempt and fail to be their own person. Individual minded people will be individuals whether society told them to or not.

>Isn't it weird that the west value individualism so much yet need to do everything in groups?
I think you are missunderstanding what individualism actually is if you think there is a conflict between being individualistic and doing things in groups. Individualism is not synonymous with being alone or a loner. Just like being collectivist doesn't mean always being around people or being a extrovert.
>Apparently eating alone in restaurants is a big taboo
It isn't.
Actually go outside and stop believing trolls on the internet. The truth is no one cares, rarely notices, and most people have or semi-regularly do it.
>Also they demand to eat in groups in a Japanese ramen store originally intended for singles who unfortunately have catered to them
Never heard that or seen evidence and honestly don't care.

tl;dr individualism isn't what you seem to think it is, and no one cares if you eat out alone.

>Apparently eating alone in restaurants is a big taboo

It's most definitely not. I've eaten in hundreds of different shitty buffets over the years and there's always a lot of people eating alone in those places at all times. Nobody cares. I mean nobody. It's not even an unusual occurrence, it's in fact quite common.

Back when I was young and still dealing with the effects of "unpleasant interactions", social and physical isolation due to changing schooling from public to home schooling, and having my incorrect expectations violated when it came to the behavor of authorities in a crisis. I hated most of humanity on a personal level. Plus I was becoming more aware of global issues like that injustus was common, the true horrors of war and that it isn't like the action movies, and the general shitty state of the world due to human vice and stupidity.

On reflection, I hated people because they didn't match the expectations I was taught to expect as a child.
How my hatred faded was as I grew to understand people as they actually are and why people do the things they do, rather then how I wanted them to be or how others wishfully say they are. Hate comes from anger, and as the stoics accurately put it, anger comes from violated expectations. As I got rid of my expectations of people my anger faded. Without that anger there was nothing to fuel the fires of hate.

So my two tips for not being a misanthrope is to get rid of your expectations of people, and to learn and accept how people actually are as well as understand why they behave how they behave, rather then how you would like them to be.
It probably won't make you actually like humanity, but you likely won't hate them if you do those two things.

>Is anyone else here sensitive to caffeine?
Yeah.
Normally tea isn't too much, but I only drink about 6-8 oz cup at a time.

Anyway, to not waste money you could try to do what I do to the free coffee at work. I water it down and use tiny cups.
So in the small cup I fill it maybe a third with coffee(or in your case overly strong tea) then add water for the other two thirds and stir.
Probably leads to a very light tasting tea but with coffee it seems to work fine.

Not really. I used to drink that instant 3-in-1 coffee just for the taste or black tea before bed and never had any problems.

Then I started drinking 3 cups of turkish black coffee a day and for the first time I understood the caffeine meme. I could sleep 3 hours the night before and just feel really buzzed and focused, but then the headaches started when I didn't get my fix so I just quit it entirely. There's always a price to pay with substances but for a second there I was really into it and even bought 5-6 brands of coffee at the store to try out.

I'm disgusted by the fact I hate people. The disgust I feel for myself is a magnification of the very same disgust I feel for others.

Here's a personal example. I spent a long time together with my stepbrother in one house, like 5 years. I left for college. In 4 years he called me once or twice. I hate him for being distant. Now I do realize this lack of being able to open up is his own personal problem, but I still hate him for it.

But I hate myself way more. I hate myself for hating my family. I tell myself that I love my family and I believe that to some extent I do, but I also hate them.

This is breaking me. A contradictory position like this is unstable. I'm going to learn how to love people.

Apples and oranges comparison. When you're talking about animals (this includes humans) there's a whole lot more that can go wrong in the aesthetics department and usually does.

So hungry. Haven't done groceries in weeks and only had cookies and dorispies to eat since (i keep a 3 week supply of corn chip products). Not good cookies either, I got those Christie's with the Cadbury Mini eggs instead of chocochips and they burnt away the top layer of my tongue like cinnamon hearts do. I also tried those new Oreos that are like vanilla cookie, light choco cream, and also peanut butter cream. Not great, left me wanting regular peanut butter cookies and regular Oreos. Stole a ramen pack from the housemate and then went out back to shoot geese, so aunty can make me goose pot pie. Nothing flew by besides crows, and they don't taste very good. Walked to work and collected the half bag of Cool Ranch I had stashed under the register. The bag had been perforated by mice and mink but that didn't stop me from crunching the bag to crumbs and then drinking it all. Ratass pizza place I like doesn't do delivery for another hour. SkipTheDishes keeps getting guys from like 40km away and I feel bad for them. I have a need to feed, a fate to masticate, in my stomach there is room to consume.

I have no real knowledge besides knowing what other people use. I bought a chinese Uno clone and a bunch of parts like 10 years ago and only used them to make a probe thermometer from another Arduino Nano clone and a DS18B20 sensor. I still use the thermometer but I should have known better than to delude myself I'd learn electronics and programming if I got all the stuff. I always do that, I briefly get into random things thinking I'll finally start learning something and then I never do or accomplish anything. I'm ashamed looking at the dusty box of unopened parts sitting in the corner. I didn't even write the program, just copy pasted some code I found on the internet. God I hate myself.

Anyway if you want a cheaper Uno clone try RobotDyn store on Aliexpress and look for a "Classic UNO R3 ATmega16U2+ATmega328P-PU" board. These are $13, there are many much cheaper Uno boards available but the RobotDyn ones are generally liked for good enough quality while still being cheaper than originals. But get better power supplies than cheap chinese, I tried to use 3.3V/5V breadboard power supplies I got with the other parts to test faulty LED strips in my TV and ended up burning some diodes because both of the supplies broke after minutes of use. After that I found out that buying brand new LED strips is actually cheaper than getting all the stuff needed to test and repair them, I wonder why local TV repairmen don't just install new strips and instead insist on replacing them with ones cobbled together from working diodes cut out of old broken strips. Extreme penny pinching I guess.

Housemate A's longterm prostitute is over for the weekly dick sucking contest. Housemate B's meathole invited a friend over. Turns out Housemate B's meat's friend is Housemate's A's illegitimate daughter that he's only ever seen once. Said daughter begins chatting it up with Housemate A. Housemate A's prostitute doesn't like this, and begins downing hard liquor. Said prostitute falls ass-first in to the toilet, uprooting it and spraying unflushed shart water everywhere. There is no more toilet and now everyone is drunk and fighting about child support or some other normalfag problem. The night is young. They took mushrooms and are likely to engage in crack smokery. Their radio can get very loud. Prostitute is now attempting toilet use despite no toilet. It has just broken down the bathroom door.

Do you ever see some low-tier wage slave somwhere and wonder how they can take it? I was in the line at walmart customer service for like 40 minutes today and I watched the elderly wage slave near the exit. His job consisted of telling the morons who tried to walk through the gates marked "emergency exit only" that they couldn't go that way, to check people's receipts at the door, and to wish people a good day. Sometimes people would just leave their cart there and he would unchain the cart section and put the cart with the rest of the carts and put the chain back. As I sat there and watched him do this shit over and over again I just started to wonder how this guy could tolerate 40 hours of his life being devoted to that bullshit every week without blowing his brains out.

You need to be extremely low sentience and braindead to be able to do that 8 hours a day for years upon years.

I mean, I designed and painted and ceiling murals for a small institution with all the creativity I could muster (classic buildings built between 1800-1900, so heraldry, fleur de lis patterns, Louis XVI ornaments etc), and I still needed 1 hour breaks every 2-3 hours to stay sane.

checking receipts and telling people to have a nice day just sounds boring as fuck. It takes basically zero effort or skill and there is zero variation. At least working at the customer service line you get to do a bunch of different shit. Somehow even stocking shelves seems infintely preferable though and that too would be boring. I think it's the soulless corporate enforced cheery interaction that rubs me the wrong way. Just sitting there listening to him say "have a nice day" over and over again just sounded dystopian after a certain point because it's just something his boss makes him do so the company will make more money, it's not a genuine human interaction. How could it be? A normal person asking to see your receipt is basically them treating you as a criminal, but since it's a corporation doing it for money we all just kind of accept it and get through the fake interaction, only this guy gets through it thousands upon thousands of times every day.

Holy fucking shit, where was this a decade and a half ago for me? I remember fretting about basic stuff like going to the fucking grocery store, and playing out in my head how to do a basic transaction with a clerk. This book has that level of detail written down. If someone had sold etiquette to me as

"Rote rules that you can memorize that can pass you off for someone with MUCH higher social skills than you actually have"

as opposed to

"Snooty pedantry for your aunt at the dinner table"

Cooked a small pork roast. I think it came out too soft.
Like the texture was kind of melty and had the same give as well chewed gum. I am used to pork being a bit chewier and harder then that, but this is the first time I have actually made pork roast for myself.
It also filled with water. Cooking should have dried out the meat a bit so that it would have a drier texture. I had sauce prepared as is normal but the meat was already soaking wet as I cut it. Very weird, I checked the temp and it was within the safe range in the thickest part of the meat, so it wasn't under cooked.
I don't know why my roast came out the way it did. It isn't like my grandma's roast at all.

Now that you've mentioned it, I guess this is embarrassing stuff to mention, but it should.

For example, when I'd go to the store I'd often "plan" what exactly I had to say to the clerk if they asked me what I was there for, and I'd just start panicking about what to do. They've got that situation covered. Picrel, it says exactly what to say. In fact, it's more insanely detailed than that: picrel is the SUBSECTION dedicated to department store clerks, there's A DIFFERENT SUBSECTION for what you say to a pharmacist.

Or I'd fret a ton of time over the 'send' button before sending an e-mail. There's a whole section on correspondence and e-mail that's of the form "IF you are talking to X for reason Y say or use template Z or be sure to at least mention Z."

There's obviously a ridiculously large chapter on 'conversation' that very literally describes how you're supposed to talk to someone (when do you use filler words and when do you look at their face versus look away). You probably don't need it to that detail, I guess. In any case, the MOST invaluable stuff I've found is how to deal with "nosy" questions I'd often get from family (I shouldn't have been surprised, but the fact that the book had them verbatim surprised me and made me think this thing was psychic ("Why aren't you married yet?")) .

A lot of people avoid the upload progress by just livestreaming the footage to Youtube and then using their high-subscriber privileges to flag the stream as an upload instead, so footage will be wrecked with network compression, especially if they're aiming for 60fps.

yeah their compression algos seem much more aggressive based on googling. i have seen bitrate get reduced 30x and the frames halved to 30fps, when you compare the same video before and after being uploaded. and so they are just applying that also to older videos as well…

it is insane when you compare the video quality of sites like twitch to youtube. night and day. the fucked up thing is that they have the original high quality video you upload, im assuming, but they are just streaming the quality versions in a highly compressed format

As somebody self-diagnosed as a schizoid, there are a few reasons why I think it's a problem. First, I find dealing with people to be at minimum very draining and usually extremely unpleasant. This is a problem if you don't want to live in a cabin in the mountains a la Uncle Ted. Any job I could get (and I have huge difficulty getting any) would be far more difficult for me to deal with than for most other people. No, I can't get NEETbux so that's not a solution.
Apparently a large proportion of homeless people have SPD, which highlights how much of an issue this could be.

There's also the anhedonia and general lack of motivation, but that seems secondary. If I had a consistent and sufficient source of income I would probably live a very quiet and simple life and not have much of a problem with it.

No. Youtube favors Vox, MSNBC, CBS, PBS, etc.. It's the same reason they've been getting rid of dislikes.

It came out of nowhere when nobody was even accusing them of that yet. Just a little bit suspicious if you ask me, kind of like if you ask a guy "Hey, have you heard that X got robbed?" and their immediate response was, "I DID NOT ROB X."

This is usually why a lot of schizoids end up taking up the impersonal jobs.

I can see an argument to providing schizoids with "ways to fake it," which is what a lot of the "therapy" amounts to. Which is another thing I find weird. If the therapy amounts to "Here's how you can fake being somewhat social," but isn't actually making them want to be more social, isn't that an admission that this is a personal preference and lifestyle, not a disorder?

>There's also the anhedonia and general lack of motivation, but that seems secondary.

I can see the arguments for and against that. It seems like a "the grass is greener on the other side" thing, because there's a shitton of normies who are chasing Buddhism becuase it seems like they want to be anhedonic. Likewise, there are a lot of anhedonic people who want some sort of motivation in life, but when they do, it inevitably ends up like an addiction and poisons them.

from my understanding there is no therapy that can help you overcome being schizoid. I can only speak from my understanding but I know how to fake it and can fake it to a degree that I appear high profile and socially capable. I can increase my threshold for being able to tolerate certain people without being drained but will still find all social interaction draining.
>this is a personal preference and lifestyle, not a disorder?
Schizoid goes beyond being a natural inclination towards being alone. This is not something you choose and although it is not well as well studied as other PD's there is reason to believe that it can be an alternative outcome for childhood trauma that is thought to cause borderline personality disorder.

The thing about schizoid that fucks you is how utterly hollow everything is. Schizoids may seem content alone and pretty much are but at the same time can strongly desire the ability to connect with another but there is no point because it is as if schizoid is an alien.

Isn't anhedonia a natural reaction to the hedonic treadmill? I mean, if you're an actuary, and you manage to obtain the same average return while minimizing the risk of a portfolio, then congrats, you've done a good job. But when it comes with happiness, people want the extreme highs and lows that come with it, but why? Is there a cognitive bias that doesn't make individuals realize that the hedonic treadmill implies that the higher up you go, then NECESSARILY you'll come crashing down? Is there some Superman "I'm invincible" thought process going on?

>Isn't anhedonia a natural reaction to the hedonic treadmill?
Not really, no.
I think you are misunderstanding both the consept of the hedonic treadmill and what anhedonia actually is.

Anhedonia is the total inability to feel happiness or pleasure, caused by depression or brain damage. It isn't being low, it is cutting off the whole positive portion of the emotional scale and throwing it away. So the only options are to feel bad or to feel nothing at all. Happiness and joy aren't options, aren't on the table.

The hedonic treadmill is more like stimulation tolerance. To green text a explanation its
>stimulus creates pleasure
>repeating that same exact stimulus over and over again creates a little less pleasure over time
>eventually ether a stronger stimulus is needed
>or a new different stimulus to bring the same level of pleasure
>taken to a extreme it leads to the requirement for drastically strong new stimulation to cause even faint levels of pleasure
Or to put it shortly it takes more and more to feel peak levels of good. Realistically speaking peak pleasure can't be held indefinitely.
It is easiest to explain it with drug analogies.
The first few hits feel peak good, but tolerance quickly builds and no matter how much the dose is raised peak good can't be maintained, to the point it can't even be reached. The drug even in high, near lethal quantities, barely gets stimulation above baseline.

So the TL:DR of the hedonic treadmill is that stimulation tolerance is a thing so doing the same thing over and over again won't make you permanently happy.

No, I completely understand that. But you're also only looking at the bad. It's also the total inability to feel emotions period–including the bad ones.


Also, I don't really buy your explanation of hedonic treadmill. Everything I read does not seem to be what you're describing.

The other name for it is hedonic adaptation.
The only difference between my explaining it and the conventional way is the conventional way includes negative adaptation as well as positive adaptation, which I left out not only because it muddies the waters of explaining the concept but also because I don't think that part of the hypothesis is actually true.
I think that there is enough evidence that prolonged negative stimulation does drag down someones baseline significantly.
But the inverse does seam to have support, that adaptation to positive stimulation causes one to eventually fall to baseline.

To be crude.
A vibrater to the dick stops being fun relatively quickly.
A blowtorch to the back doesn't stop being unbelievably painful until physical damage renders the nerves inoperable.
Or in otherwords pleasure gets boring after time, but pain can always get your attention as long as you physically are able to function.

Yeah I know I am bias in regard to the theory, but it doesn't really change the explanatory power in context.

Beautifully horrific.

If an outcome is undesirable, it is the action that is to be scrutinised; the outcome is of no consequence other than as a measure of said action in actu. Humanity on the whole seems to have lost sight of this. Indeed, the greatest threat to humanity's survival is complacency in the face of danger, for not only has the danger been recognised, it has been accepted - synthesised - added to the framework as a norm. Incredibly, this means that not knowing of looming danger is less of a threat than knowledge of it when coupled with complacency towards it. Complacency brings about inaction where action should be - action against prior action - either to replace or undo that which was a threat to survival. In order to reverse this suicidal trait, complacency must be removed at a rate faster than it propagates, and yet those who maintain a position of complacency toward it cannot and will not accept this 'norm' as a danger. Thus, those who wish to remove the norm are now the danger - the danger to their complacent way of life. Thus, there is a split between humanity, and the lines of true enemies are drawn in the sand. If those who identify complacency as a threat fail, and advances in technology continue as have already been planned, then this future appears to be a certainty. Not probable, but an actual certainty.

And why would he remember you of all people out of the several hundred he greats on a daily basis? And why should he take the mental energy to identify you and go against his job description to accommodate your odd snowflake preferences for a catered, one-of-a-kind shopping experiences? What makes you so special? "main character delusion" maybe? And why couldn't you put in the same minimal effort that most other people put in and just smile and nod back? Normalfags are sensitive to being ignored by nature, so why do you go in to that man's store and bother him so with your rude attitude? And you expose yourself to this tardstress 30+ days in a row because why? Bring a backpack and load up more than a days worth of tendies if being greeted is such a traumatic experience.

>how long the dumbass would take to stop self humiliating for me, I am not going to have a nice day and I don't even want to look at you, leave me alone wagecuck,

You are not even warlocking here, just being a big whiny pair of shit pants. If it bothers you to the point of feeling "humiliated", then why don't you do something about it? Tell him you don't wish to be greeted. Wear a pair of headphones (Which, yes, US Walmarts and Targets do tell their employees to not engage with people listening on earphones because they could be in a call for all anyone knows).

WWE chairman Vince McMahon doesn't eat any food with his hands. He says "sandwiches don't count" and that when he eats pizza he "folds it over and doesn't eat the part that he touched".

I'm happy you're happy. I just hope one day I and other wizzies can become as happy as you. I'm sure I'll get there with the way I'm going. In the meantime, sending good vibes.

most people are not "monsters". most people are selfish and only about themselves, but they aren't out to get you. in fact, they don't even care at all about you or noticec you exist.
