Not a snowy, Christmas, new years, comfycozy image? Sad!
>Pic of great roman emperor
Funny, I like it.
this. more landscapes, less people.
i feel like my desk is too low, and for sure my monitor could be elevated an inch or two. my upper back hurts from prolonged computering
I like how the artist went through the trouble of drawing a ladder and foot tracks in the snow to point out exactly how they got there in the first place. It's funny how she felt compelled to explain the physicality of a gnome smoking a pipe on the roof of a house.
I don't know why but I feel mildly annoyed this christmas and I have no reason to feel annoyed. Which is also annoying. My confused feelings aside
I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas and happy holiday season in general.
I wish I could find software developers who gimp functionality and kill them. The rage that I get from seeing their completely fucking retarded decisions is inexplicably intense. Nothing makes me as angry as this shit. I am trying to install an app right now but it gives me no option to change the install location from the default and the drive it's trying to install is full. I literally want to fucking hunt down and murder the software designer who made it like this. I tried googling some workaround using the command line but of course that shit didn't work. All I want now is death.
Haha, I didn’t think of that.
I suppose all Nordic people are autistic (in a good way).
I should clean my computer, it's been one year already
You will never be Terry.
You will never be a famous lol cow.
Why do you do this?
Well, she went for the extra work of drawing the ladder and foot track for free, since not everyone will notice this detail.
it's just another date on a calendar, nothing special about it
It feels to me like the entire year of 2021 just flew by in an instant. This year felt shorter to me than any other year. Sometimes the last decade feels like it should have only been a few years to me. This scares me. Is it because every day is the same so I have nothing to anchor myself to in time? What can I do so a year feels like an actual year? I fear at this rate one day I'll wake up and find myself an old man with no recollection of my life in-between childhood and decrepitude.
as if someone not shitting himself with xmas joy is a matter for a fedora pic, you're a goddamn idiot with nothing to say, you gonna lob your retard meme pic at someone just going meh at some other holiday like the matsuri? the diwali? they're nothing but dates on a calendar too
I only did this for a short time, but when i was writing in a diary just putting down what I had done that day and my thoughts the days seemed to go much more slowly for some reason. Not sure why but you could try it I guess.
see? you're just an idiot
I've been doing good.
I woke up today at around 1 or 2 am to find it was snowing outside, I was genuinely happy because of it.
I stopped everything I was doing and went outside with a pair of shirts, gloves, thermal socks with sandals, and a balaclava.
I took a short walk around my neighborhood mostly taking in the scenery and atmosphere, it was quiet, cold, and dark. and that's how I liked it, it made me feel alive and grateful to be in a moment like this.
It was one of the simple pleasures that I enjoyed about life next to being in the countryside and stargazing, being wowed by the night sky without all the light pollution.
It's one of those moments that reminds you that there's still some beauty in this dull and cruel world.
I spent the rest of my time outside just sitting in the middle of the road just watching the snow hit the ground and seeing pieces of glitter lit up by the streetlights.
I went back inside because of the cold getting to me and made some soup.
I live in a area where elevation is low and seasons are generally rainy and not so rainy and we don't get a lot of snow because of it.
I think it was the best thing that I could ever ask, for christmas.
I hope you'll have a great time with him.
the only present I got this year was no new snow shitting itself down for me to shovel, and honestly, it's the only thing I wanted
I'm down bad.
This was lovely to read, wizard, thank you. I feel there is a certain light about life that can never be extinguished, no matter how commercialised, industrialised, sanitised, dulled the world gets. The beauty is there but we have to pay attention and want to see it.
Now I think of it, I’d quite like a balaclava. Do you find it comfortable? I imagine on top of the obvious warmth benefit, it feels rather nice to be a little more anonymous in public.
I’ll have to start going out early in the morning too. It sounds wonderful. Though I’m fortunate that it’s usually fairly quiet at all times where I live.>>281611
Thank you, wiz! It went shockingly well. He gave me some chocolate and a lottery ticket as a Christmas present. He practically only spoke about cars and his truck driving job the entire time, which I was happy to engage in. His truck driving job sounds very comfy. He has a good sense of humour and he’s kind to our grandparents. He wasn’t degenerate at all, other than laughing that I don’t have any social media. I ended up buying pizza for everyone with my bux. The pizza shop owner calling me his friend and giving me a fist bump was the cherry on top. My mother keeps telling me I should see my cousin again tomorrow before he leaves, but I think I’ve had enough social interaction for now.
i genuinely don't "get" beer, it all tastes like a dirty wooden ass or something
I don't think most people actually like beer or coffee they just accept their programming like good goyim
I don't know about beer but coffee has a very rich, bitter flavor and it tastes very good indeed, not to mention the aroma which is probably the best one among all the drinks out there.
Beer gets you buzzed enough to have a good time. I can see it becoming an acquired taste, though.
why not just water down liquor with something that doesn't taste like rot
Because it is too easy to get shitfaced with liquor, especially as you become drunker. With beer it is easy, just grab a can.
I like sweetened coffee's flavor, but do admit black coffee is pretty intense and I only drink coffee black for the utility of it while not adding calories.
Sort of like how some people like milk chocolate but don't like really dark chocolate, but there are others who hate milk chocolate and adore really dark chocolate.
perhaps this is why whiteclaw and other hard seltzer stuff are becoming popular. they dont taste like ass in the way beer does, they are just a slightly better weird fruit flavor. but same form factor of a can for easy drinking
Try craft beer. Milk stout is a really good style. It's a little sweet from lactose, which resists yeast fermentation.
When I began drinking I didn't like beer or wine, so I stuck to fireball, my original drink which I thought was the most inoffensive way to get drunk. Eventually I replaced that with tequila.
I tried beer and wine occasionally. The first beers I bought were flowery and gross. The wine I had all tasted the same and I didn't like it. Eventually I found a beer I liked at an organic grocery store with a good selection. Now I drink dozens of different beers that I like, all craft (mostly from California and Oregon) and imports (I like Belgian sour beers but they're about $4/can vs <$2/can for local beers). I found wine that I liked a few months ago. Nowadays I drink just wine and beer, I drink about 5-10 times a month and I have not gotten drunk this year. I don't hold back at all, I drink as much as I want but I'm just naturally a moderate drinker. I like the little effect it has and the taste. When I drank mostly liquor I only drank to get drunk and I only felt like getting drunk months apart.
If you get the ratio right the alcohol content is the same though.
every family event im obligued to attend has a big plastic cooler packed with ice and craft beer, and all my male relatives sit around drinking and going "ah" "delicious" "wonderful taste" like a bunch of redneck winetasters. ive tried various lagers, oatmeal, coffee, peanut butter, lots of flavors, all the boomer standard beer brands, ipas
gin has been the only alcohol that ive enjoyed for the flavor. wine and vodka arent bad. everything else i just try and mix with soda water or something. if it cant mix then it is purely a means of getting drunk and so it is a race to gulp it down as fast as possible
there is still a lot of types of alcohol i need to try, but i feel like beer is just consistently disappointing. i still try new stuff every month just about. last month i tried an oatmeal stout, then a coffee thing, then this month a peanut butter craft beer that was so grossly thick and syrupy and 10% alc somehow
I’m a former alcoholic, almost a year sober. I still drink alcohol-free beer regularly because I like the taste.
CERN is speeding up time in an attempt to bring the Antichrist to life. That's why it's going faster
What’s up with all the Christianity/satanism/occult/conspiracy stuff on here at the moment? I remember not long ago there was just one thread on Christianity and one thread on the occult. Now it seems like every thread has something about these topics in the replies.
Larping, for the most part.
You have to remember wizchan's posting community is fairly small. If it happens that 2 or 3 guys being interested on the same thing at the same time, and they're posting about it, it will have a noticeable impact on the general content being discussed on wizchan.
>What is a picture car?
>A Picture Car is a vehicle that is filmed on camera. They are the automotive equivalent of Hollywood actors. There are hundreds, even thousands of production companies that make movies, commercials, TV Series, and print work.
Moved countries and getting autismbux? How does one achieve that.
I’m a citizen of the new country because my mother was born here. I already had extensive diagnoses/test results/evaluations/medical notes/medical history from the country I was living in previously. I’ve been in a psych ward in the old country for a couple weeks last year too so that probably helped. Plus I was fortunate enough to be matched with empathetic mental health workers, probably.
man office chairs fucking suck
i have zero lower back support. i lean back and the entire thing just tilts back. there is only ever back support when the entire eat is tilted to its fucking max and then i have to sit like a retarded motorcycle lowrider reaching forward to my keyboard and mouse
tell me about it
an office chair has been only bedroom chair almost 15 years now
the seat/back covering is long gone even, it's just plastic left and if I use a wrong position too long my lower back goes numb
but what can you do
If I were in your situation, one thing I would do to pass the time is start learning the language
I mean one thing you can do is try and learn the language of your new home. That alone will give you more options
idk i have used a weird wooden stool type chair for years. it only has a backrest that goes up like 8 inches but at least it support my lower back. i was trying out an office chair just for the hell of it and man how do people sit in those fucking things
>how do people sit in those fucking things
it's one of those things you learn to live with, neither I nor office workers have a choice
one nice thing about long shipping times is that you have time to forget about your package, so when it does arrive you appreciate it for a second time
my mom orders things off amazon when she's drunk and then is surprised whenever she gets a package
Hey its me, ur mum
Thank you for your kindness, wizzies. I plan on starting the language classes run by the government ASAP. I could try to get back into Duolingo in the meantime, I suppose.
customer service took so long to respond that the replacement product is out of stock, very nice
can't wait to have my money back in 2023
i swear they're doing it on purpose
google search seems to have some sort of word equivalence thing. search for oily tubers and it exclusively shows you thigns for oily roots (some feminine hair problem)
i realized there is a knob under the seat that controls how easily the seat leans back. tightened that fucking thing down and i actually have some back support and the upper seat is somewhat sturdy now
I just realized that like a few months ago after dealing with the problem my entire life, you'd think it would be on the instructions or somthing
year sure flew by
It's literally in the user manual.
It comes with them whenever you buy them new.
It's also mentioned in most books on office ergonomics.
I am sure it's easy to find online too.
no one reads those things though, it should be stickered to the device
I read them.
The info is plainly available. You chose ignorance and learning the hard way. Don't blame anyone else for what was self inflicted.
>>281842>I read them.
Making up stories again I see.
I hope one of these brats got hurt by the fireworks. Fucking hell. When I was a kid I used little quiet stick fireworks like a civilized person, not this Al Qaeda shit.
thanks for the heads up future timezone wizard. i can still go to bed early to avoid hearing that shit
you mean your parents didnt let you have real fireworks cause they were lame
Over here some 12 year old died by this weird thing where they hit little bangers with a hammer (?).
Let the kids have their fun. It's like 3 days of of the year they get to play with fireworks and kids need all opportunities they can have to make good memories on this hellscape of an earth. You sound like a dog mom.
when i was a kid i would just cum onto the floor protector thing that was over the carpet that protected it from the office chair wheels. such a build-up of dried cum occured over the years that i had to take it into the shower and scrape off chunks, and then those chunks ended up clogging the drain line. i guess they absorbed water like rice and became sticky. there is no chance in hell my family didn't notice my floor mat so i wonder why they never said anything
when I was 15 I realized that cum clogs drains so I just started eating it, it was kinda gross at first but after a while it just becomes a habit that you don't really think about
how is that even possible. leave cum out long enough and it goes from a gel to basically water. maybe hot showers turn fresh cum into a glue or something
I would just wash it down the sink and eventually my drain got super clogged, idk how it did it, I just know when I stopped that it never got clogged again
Warm water coagulates the protein to a thicker substance like mucus.
now to find what the text under her print says
Probably the description of a costume, you can see parts of it in the print filename.
Found the second one too
man fireworks can suck my cock. pure anxiety
screeching banshee wails, big explosions, sounds that make me think someone is breaking in, gunshot sounds
Its just noise and light and probably way in the sky.
Happy new yeear fellow wizards on the east coast
Happy new years.
Hopefully this one will be better than the last.
How a Fake Rent-a-Hitman Site Became an Accidental Murder-for-Hire Sting Operation
You’d think no one would be stupid enough to book a murderer-for-hire on a website called RentAHitman.com. Bob Innes is here to tell you people are a lot dumber than you realize
Fap is killing you slowly. Get ready for a horrid old age.
there's an identical lower cupboard in our kitchen, it's a horrible design, who can even reach wayyyy into that back space for something? you can't even see back there and it's an invitation for bugs and rats, my parents stopped using it decades ago, what a horrible design
I dont fap anymore dont worry
I use it to store appliances that I never use and probably should throw away anyway.
Pro-tip: get some ribs removed.
I'm already flexible enough for that
>>281933>I wonder what next job will be replaced by machines?
Everything that *can* be replaced. And no, not all of those destroyed jobs will lead into people getting other jobs. They will just be gone.
Basic income is just a matter of time not due to political realities but because a lot of people will have no access to any sort of job in the future.
I fell for the antipsychotic meme again. Finally got off them for the first time in years when I moved to another country a few months ago. Mental health started improving as a result, combined with a couple other medication tweaks. OCD was better than ever but still bothersome, so I asked the shrink what she can do. I was already on the highest dose of sertraline, so she suggested a tiny dose of seroquel twice a day to potentiate the sertraline. I was sceptical and resisted, but she genuinely thought it’s worth a try, and she was the one who took me off APs in the first place. Fast forward to a couple weeks later, I’m feeling incredibly fatigued, numb, depressed, inactive, achy. Before the seroquel I was feeling fairly good. I’ve been on high doses of other antipsychotics before (Olanzapine etc.) but this tiny dose of seroquel might just be the worst one yet. Dang nabbit.
I’m going to drink a stronger energy drink than usual this morning to hopefully counteract the lethargy a little bit.
The job isnt even replaced, the robots arent making the food now are they?
They are no longer hiring extra people to work as cashiers. Only one person is needed to attend to the front.
I'm pretty sure that Mcdonald's also wants to get rid of that person needed to accept drive-through orders, which is why they're pushing the app so hard. A four-man team is probably the optimal McDonald's configuration these days. One manager, two cooks, and one front house person to interact with customers. Ideally, the front person would also be accepting drive-through orders and payments. This would only be possible if everyone in the drive-through used the app.
I love these kiosks, so convenient.
I went with my sister and her kids to a mcdonalds a few years ago and I was also surprised to see that they had set up so many of these machines now. When I saw her using one of them I couldn't help but feel that there something silly and puerile about it, I don't know.
As far as I know, lower doses of seroquel should be more sedating than higher doses. kind of odd that you would be suggested to take it twice a day since it's given out all too often as a sleeping medication in the us.
I would relate my experience, but I refused to take antipsychotics of any kind.
I guess my shrink was going for something like this:https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15669891/
I live in Europe now. I lived in America when I was on antipsychotics originally though. In fact I think Olanzapine was the first medication I was ever prescribed (after a single 20 minute session with a shrink).
Broke another spoke to my bike. Will probably have to replace the wheel if another one breaks.
Have to true both wheels since they have a distinct wobble, change the chain, probably get a new rear bicycle cassette, get new brake pads, and change out the now rusting cables. So much work that I keep putting it off, which only makes it worse.
Maybe my local bike shop doesn't have a several month long waiting list anymore and I can just pay for them to do all this shit that I don't want to do.
Silver lining of today's ride is I saw a succubus who was a dead ringer for Gabe Newell before he grew the beard. Not even being mean, it was uncanny. Like if I was the conversational type I would be tempted to ask if she was related. It gave me a pretty good chuckle.
That doesn't make any sense, antipsychotics are sedating mostly from their antihistamine reaction, more antihistamine = more tired
woah that's pretty high tech. i havent ate own in a very long time. is that normal now?
Normal at McDonalds where I live here on the east coast.
REEEEEE listen to my autogynephilia venting normie
And what is a "wizard" doing on porn sites?
collecting art of course
how do all these darn fruit flies get in my room
I'm nowhere close to the kitchen
It's helpful in finding name of artist
We call them fruit flies but fruit is just one thing those flies like. If you have any plants in your bedroom, they deposit eggs on plant leaves and stems as well.
they just fly around wherever, put some sticky tape up
I hate car dealerships so fucking much. You literally waste an entire day walking around their lot, being pressured to buy something, only to go home empty-handed and tired. If you do buy something they will try to swindle the fuck out of you with high interest rates and sales prices because they know they can. I even tried Toyota's new 'smartpath' thing but it is still the same shit, you still have to get in contact with a dealership to make them try to sell you some shit deal over the phone.
I'm thinking the reason Tesla has become so popular is not because of people wanting EVs, but because people don't have to deal with that boomer dealership bullshit.
are they in the kitchen? they breed in damp areas like in your kitchen drains with all the scraps of food down there. they can also breed outside and just get sucked into your air conditioning into your house
order some kind of mesh and put it over your air conditioning vents. this stops both cases from getting to your room
order sticky tape for flies, black flag worked for me. put it above/near your window/monitor since they will fly towards the light
if they are still coming in, get a door draft stopper thing, that prevents them from coing in from under your door. you can also get insulation tape and seal the edges where the door closes to make sure nothing can get through
I think I know which bug he means, and those scented fly paper strips do work, that's how we kill them in my house
>>282008>>282018>they deposit eggs on plant leaves and stems as well
This is what caused the fly problem in my home a while ago. Repotting the plants and then covering the dirt with sand eliminated the problem almost immediately.
I have little ant-like things crawling around my house and no idea what they are or why they're here. I see them around places with no clear pattern, just randomly walking alone on a desk or bathroom or something, I try to look around for others but I never see any, or if I do it's just a second one a few feet away. I look all around where I've seen them but I can't find any central place they might be coming from. I don't really see them too often but I see them often enough that it's concerning.
Dealerships aren't that bad if you research ahead of time and actually know what you want as well as what it's worth.
That said I dislike owning cars in general even though I could easily afford one. Last one I had was a never ending headache and money sink that left me stranded for a week. Bikes and public transport are cheaper, easier, and more reliable, with way less retarded paperwork and regulations. No stupid yearly inspections, no emissions fines, no state mandated insurance, no loss of 4th amendment rights because cars somehow negate those, no constantly paying for repairs, no dealing with gas prices, etc.
>>282048>Dealerships aren't that bad if you research ahead of time and actually know what you want as well as what it's worth.
Maybe a few years ago but it is absolutely a seller's market right now so they highball the fuck out of you and refuse to go lower because they know some desperate schmuck is going to come by and buy it.
It's to total opposite where I live. Use market is flooded and most dealers are chomping at the bit to cycle their inventory and free up space for newer cars.
Still not buying though, lol. I just know about the market because someone I train with is super into cars and used to run a small dealership themselves.
You mentioned bikes and public transportation being easier and more reliable. That has to be the main thing dictating the car market where you live.
Here public transportation is complete ass and extremely unreliable. Will the bus be coming in 15 min or 30? Will he actually stop for you or will he drive by like you arent even there? Walking and riding your bike is almost never an option because roads don't have bike lanes or sidewalks. The only real option for getting around is a car. My monthly expenses actually went way up once I became carless because I had to take an uber or lyft everywhere.
Different places, different markets.
I guess that is the main take-away.
I don't understand what made them such a big meme on imageboards.
Both died of covid, how are the conspiracytards going to twist this I wonder.
The obvious claim is that it’s just media lies.
Yeah sure… they both die within a week of each other and it's the flu's fault. Can't believe you buy this shit.
still not taking the 4th vaxx
Yeah, they were probably silenced because reasons.
I’m more inclined to believe all that Botox finally did them in.
They were in their 70s. Old people die.
if i had to guess which two people were to die a week apart, i would bet on two genetically identical humans (twins)
Why do norps always say like "I'm 30-something years old! I'm not good as you yunguns'!", it's not their age, they just won't admit that they waste their time working and spending time with a wife and kids, that's why they're crap at everything they do now, but they just wont admit it. Also annoys me when these people hang around game forums and preach like they are some sage-god who has impeccable advice when in reality it is just some kid with shit opinions that grew up and still has the same shit opinions. I actually met someone like this irl, except he was maybe early 40s, he was a fucking retard, objectively, but he would still give shitty wrong advice and try to coach people on things when he himself didn't know what the hell he is doing, I constantly had to step in on him and make sure the people he was talking to didn't do the retarded crap he would pull out his ass.
I take it you're the teens-something
sage god who knows better than them and everyone else?
Cleaned my room enough to start using my standing desk again. I laid down too much last year after getting comfortable with my computer on the ground. I feel better already.
>>282125>he was a fucking retard, objectively
And here we have another retard who misuses the word 'objectively'.>he would still give shitty wrong advice and try to coach people on things
There isn't a solid way for people with poor critical thinking skills to assess the veracity of their knowledge/beliefs, so it's all but given that idiots will crowd out anything insightful with shoddy and contradictory knowledge. Tact (in the sense of knowing what not to say) is scarce among fools. On the other hand, you now understand how and why the self-help market functions.
iktf im currently camping out upstairs in the living room so i dont miss my fucking ups package because then i will have to travel to pick it up from a store. fuck ups signature required. fuck interaction
>>282150>And here we have another retard who misuses the word 'objectively'.
No, he was actually wrong, like 2+2=5 wrong.
i remember when we were fostering a dog, it was a big old smelly dog, and it would exclusively live off cat shit somehow by raiding the litter boxes. fucking hated that gross thing
Blah blah blah, we get it, you hate dogs.
Even made several threads about it that turned into shit fest. No one wants to hear from you about the topic because you burned all good faith on the topic by proving time and time again that you are just a troll who lies for attention and hate dogs because people like them.
Personal I don't give a fuck about dogs. I just really dislike you in particular because you are a ass.
i hope at least one curious mod will probably check my post history and get a laugh when there is nothing like what you're describing. i hope they add a note to your post history calling you mentally ill and remind the other mods to be nice to you lol
Pit bull type dogs are cute. My family's had two and they were both adorable. One had a bunch of loose skin and was more stocky while another one is leaner, but with obvious muscle in the legs and butt. My only regret is that we don't exercise the current dog. I don't exercise though. I hope in the coming years we work the hell out of this dog because I know they would love the exercise.
I could exercise together by playing together.
It's pretty fun.
I'm starting to get real sick and tired of Amazon pulling this bait and switch tactic with shipping dates. When you're shopping for shit it says it will be there in 2 days but then once you've ordered it they say it will take weeks and their shipping keeps getting delayed even beyond the "guaranteed delivery date" which is already delayed from what they said it was when ordering.
A few days later he wrote another letter, to John Locke, which sheds more light upon the “embroilment” that Newton was “extremely troubled” about:
Being of opinion that you endeavoured to embroil me with woemen & by other means I was so much affected with it as that when one told me you were sickly & would not live I answered twere better if you were dead. I desire you to forgive me this uncharitableness. For I am now satisfied that what you have done is just & I beg your pardon for my having hard thoughts of you for it & for representing that you struck at the root of morality in a principle you laid down in your book of Ideas & designed to pursue in another book & that I took you for a Hobbist.
not amazon but im still waiting on computer parts i PAID for last fucking may and i have no idea when they will come
I noticed increased shipping times as well, but nothing that bad.
I'm guessing it is because the pandemic lockdowns made many people re-evaluate their priorities and realize that they do not need to be working such a stressful job.
Speaking of which; if you order on amazon have you noticed that you will be asked to rate the deliveryman? Just as they ask whether or not some customer service wageslave overseas was helpful or not. Do you bother responding to these queries?
I never rate unless they do something out of the ordinary. Even then I tend to do only 5 stars or don't rate at all.
Only time I rated less than 5 stars on a delivery service was with grubhub and the driver didn't even bother picking up my food and hung up on me when I called her.
got it yet?
the damn bastards finally showed up and picked up my package, it took half a dozen phone calls for the bastards to get to work, and they were a couple hours late
very nice, i was so pissed i wrote a mail to the seller telling them that that carrier was shite and the one they used back then was so much better
maybe i shouldnt have, but it's too late now
I rate them all 5 stars, and give them 5 stars in every category. I hope they can successfully unionize also.
had to clean shit from the robo vacuum and the floor. i sprayed the entire thing off outside then took it inside to pop off all the components that were easily accessible. taking off the wheels and the bettery exposed a lot of the internals so i hope it will dry well enough. it's been 3 solid hours of cleaning and everything still smells like shit upstairs but i give up for now
i like pets because of the companionship, they are actually comforting and can be enjoyable. but stuff like this, the annoyances, taking care of them. i don't think if i ever lived on my own that i could own a pet, i'm not responsible and caring enough
Same. Unfortunately gotta live with mom's whims.
sounds like one of those sitcom moments tbh
>larry, the fuckin robot just dragged dog shit all over the house!>*curb your enthusiasm theme song plays*
reminds me when my dog pooped right in front of the door and when I came in it smeared poop all over the entrance floor
reminds me of the time when I took a big chonker out of the public toilet at the park and chomped on it
I wanted to have a dog until I had to take care of my sister's dog for the weekend. Having to care about their pee and poop schedule is a huge turnoff for me. Maybe I'd get a dog when I buy a new house with a large yard.
This is why cats are the wizard pet. Don’t have to walk them and they shit in a box so you clean it on your schedule.
I've been reading a bit about Hiroo Onoda recently. I haven't been interested so much in the "Urturmit Burshido cod-u." I haven't been so much interested in "How could someone keep dismissing or reasoning his way around evidence that the war was over?" Or even the adjacent (but somewhat more interesting question) of, "It makes sense how he was convinced that the war wasn't over and I might have thought the same." But rather…the sense of personal meaning. Reading his accounts, it sounds like the roughly three decades he trapsed about the jungle were the most meaningful in his life. Fighting with Kozuka for 28 years seemed like the greatest story of camaraderie and fellowship. Hard, grueling, unforgiving, but incredibly noble, uplifting, and purposeful. Every day was a struggle, but at least there was a reason to wake up. There was sadness-depression, but not apathetic-depression. I was interested to read how in a sense, beautiful, that adventure was. Him returning back to Japan destroyed that. It made everything that he had done meaningless. It made everything that he could do from then on meaningless. I was interested even more to read about his struggle with that more than anything else he did in his war.
Would it have been better if he continued to fight in the jungle? To be a Don Quixote? Is the modern world inherently awful because it doesn't have this?
They've simply migrated to a higher realm beyond our perception. It's easier to rule us from there.
These amazon shipping issues have finally started to hit me. Why the fuck am I paying for amazon prime if everything is going to arrive a week from now?
My parents always complain about me not washing the dishes after they make dinner but they won’t even let me do them, I don’t get it, I’m 26 years old I’m pretty sure I can wash some pots and pans
do it then, don't ask for permission
ive got a sister like that, she sees my mother do some cooking or cleaning or taking care of the grandkids and she goes "let me take care of it mom" in the most apathetic manner, but she never does anything
if I start doing them they'll look over at me with some scrutinizing eyes and come and tell me I'm doing it wrong
It's almost like they've gamified messing with your head.
This is why I moved out of my parent's house. The constant gaslighting wears you down. Took two years of me living on my own for my brain to finally recover.
i dont get it. what do you do once they say you're doing it wrong? you dont learn the correct way/the way they want them washed?
they say you aren't doing it right. so watch and learn the right way. are you too stupid to learn how to wash dishes or something?
It was the same for me. They were really damaging me and i needed to leave to gain independence and mental health
Their complaint is that I don't make the water hot enough, it's not in my power to determine the heat of tap water, but my dad in general thinks he does everything right and everyone else cant do anything right>>282307>>282309
Unfortunately I'm not well enough to live on my own, I struggle to be independent with my issues
There are 9 normlafags connected to the internet. It is a distant LOS connection on a snowy day transmitting from a small battery-powered router. All 9 of these normalfags have at least one iPhoneDroid AND one iTab each. There are 4 TVs connected to the poor router too. They have one PC too and it is VIRUS'd, probably a poorly coded botnet ddos'ing itself.
I can't load any images or video or listen to internet radio, to browse here I need to use the No Images CSS.
Are you connected to some third world wifi?
I wonder if Linux has some fame in third world or are they licking windows' boot
I have no idea how people can get so good at rocket league. My major problem is the lack of depth perception. I guess I am too old for my brain to adjust to something like this and I find it hard to gauge the precise location of the ball. My reflexes are fine but I always whiff my shots because I cant tell how far away the ball is to my car. Same goes for flight sims, I am absolutely terrible at landing planes in video games due to the lack of depth perception. The task becomes ridiculously easy in VR, though.
I bet my rocket league skills would improve greatly if there was a VR mode.
Are you far-sighted? Do you wear glasses for anything?
I'm nearsighted. I just have trouble gauging depth on a 2D image. Most games aren't that dependent on depth information so this isn't a big deal, but it definitely affects my game in rocket league.
It is something that improves with practice. Just one of the things you get used to almost unconsciously as you get better at 3d games.
I'm not sure. He said he was good with VR games, which seems really weird.
You have to guess at depth with a game played on a 2D screen, you can actually see depth in VR. Makes sense to me.
its not really 2d that matters, we see in 2d, and vr screens are 2d. it is the differences between what one eye sees from the other eye that let our brain fake some sense of depth
I don't really see the point of your post. Are you autistic? What are you even trying to say here? It is obvious this is how the sense of depth is created in VR and doesn't even need to be said.
>>282333>Are you autistic?
You're posting on an imageboard.
>>282333>I don't really see the point of your post>What are you even trying to say here?
i posted exactly what i meant to say. i don't care if it's pedantic or rude to point out the obvious. his post >>282329
indicates to me that this isn't 100% obvious to everyone
That's why I avoid these tryhard games like the plague. I did have fun with Rocket League ca. 2015-2017 but there's no way I'm getting back into it. The lootbox and esports stuff have become very obnoxious.
venison breakfast sausage is so good
I'm going to have to learn how to make my own breakfast sausage. Can't find any non-pork breakfast sausage where I live.
I hate dogs so much, my moms dog is sucking/slurping on its foot for the past 20 minutes, I told it to stop and tried to put a toy near it and it just snapped at me, the sounds is so annoying, if you can imagine slurping your spit with your mouth open and moving your tongue around it sounds just like that
pork sausage is tasty, especially when glazed or dipped in maple syrup.>>282384
Same. I thought I loved dogs until my stepmother begun running a kennel out of the living room for rich assholes going on vacation. Dogs smaller than cats, and poodles standing 5 feet high, I've seen the worst. There are some breeds that are smart, have compassion and rational thought, but unfortunately such dogs aren't fashionable so all people get these days are violent babybiters or downy doglettes that will eat themselves if they don't get bowl of food #6 by day's end. Nobody seems to teach dogs to be quiet and for some reason it's normal to let them piss on public property to mark their territories. I've been to parks where the signs asking "children play here, please stoop and scoop and prevent peeing on the play park" have been scribbled over and thrown in to the river. Dog owners are entitled nutcases.
Dogs are incredibly impressionable and most people simply do not take the time to try and correct behaviors. My mother has a dog she’s had for 6 years now and he would seldom bark, but then my sister got a puppy who barked at everything, now the older dog barks every time the puppy does. And neither of them even try to stop their behavior. I’m lucky I don’t have to live there full time anymore.
Anon, why is hiding in your room playing videogames so appealing?
I don't know, it.. It's just fun, and safe.. I guess. Not.. stressful or anything.
But it doesn't pay the bills, does it? What are you going to do if your parents die? Your parent are going to be dead someday, anon, and you'll be all alone. What then?
Well, some people make money playing games, and a lot too… Through like, you know like livetsreaming - like podcasts but it's video, and you play games with you on camera and talk about it. I'm shy, so.. I don't know…
Well that sounds crazy. If people could get payed to podcast Nintendos, then everyone would be doing it.
Yeah, but… I don't know… I have a lot to say about how I feel right now, and how I think I can be less shy.. for starters, I -
Let me stop you there Anon. Our time is up for today. Now if you had a job instead of going through government help, you could pay for more time, but if you're just going to be sitting in the dark playing games all day, then you'll have to get by with the 28 minutes you get.
W-Wait, can I maybe call you later when I get home? I have some stuff, I really.. need to talk about, I've been having suicidal -
No Anon, I'm very busy with work even when I get home. I have grandkids to put through college, I wouldn't want to see them wind up working in some factory.
>The therapist when she gets home
I decided to stop eating pork a while ago. It isn't too hard to avoid pork, but I do love breakfast sandwiches.
Therapists are useless. I've been seeing the same one for a few years and they won't tell me what's wrong with me so I have no idea what to work on. I'm still having what I assume to be panic attacks or psychotic breaks and they haven't helped me handle them a single fucking bit.
Therapists are useful if you are in a well enough mental state to be able to help yourself.
A psychiatrist with a once-a-month session (basically so they can adjust your dosage) is a better alternative.
carrots and peanut butter are fucking great together
>>282419>Therapists are useless
No, they are great for getting referrals to psychiatrist, lol.
Anyway, some are pretty helpful for things that can be solved in situations where information or perspective can make a huge difference. Not really helpful when brain chemistry is borked.
For example some of their techniques they taught me when I was young with ADHD to cope actually were very helpful when I bothered to do them.
They also helped my mom a whole lot when she was recovering from her stroke to reorder and rebuild her thoughts and cope with the changes the damage caused in her day to day life.
However they were univercially useless when it came to my autism or when I was a kid they though I had antisocial personalty disorder but held off on giving me a official diagnosis, and tried to me, not listening to the fact that it was my environment that required me to act out. When I was older and in a different environment, what do you know, no symptoms of antisocial personalty disorder whatsoever. Because wow, when you aren't forced to be around violent assholes you don't have to act like a violent asshole just to survive. You have the luxery of being a decent person who doesn't have to be on guard all the time. But whatever.
Still couldn't figure out the autism thing though. I treated that myself by learning social skills from books and practicing on my own, as they were no help at all. It will never feel natural and I will never (nor do I want to be) a normie, but I can competently interact with people without seeming like a alien or crazy person.
Can's speak to other issues though. Like I hear they suck at dealing with mood disorders and personality disorders.
The latter will not help him, either.
Dude, are you 3 or something?
This isn't a hidden secret.
i've never seen anybody put a carrot and peanut butter in their mouth at the same time. you may have found out before me somehow but i discovered it all on my own!
It is a super common snack you give to small children to get them to eat vegetables.
I don't think I know of anyone IRL who doesn't know of or hasn't had the combination.
Celery is also super common. There is a variation of the snack called ants on a log that is a celery stick with peanut butter in the middle and raisins put in the peanut butter.
Not him, but this is the first I'm hearing of this strange cuisine. Perhaps you should consider that not everyone shares your experiences.
Do where you live they don't use peanut butter or something?
This shit is common everywhere I have ever been.
I live in the States.
it might be common where you live but i've lived all over the states and can't remember anyone eating carrots with peanut butter. honestly sounds like a food combination that my family would make fun of me for eating in front of them "oh wiz is mixing his food again haha what did you make this time" something like that
The Confederate states maybe in a alternative time line where they banned peanut butter because it was invented by a black man?
But because of the singularity on earth 2, realities are starting to cross and you somehow got ahold of a jar of this mystery wonder and are not posting about it, not realizing that your signal is crossing into alternative universes as well, arriving in a universe where peanut butter wasn't suppressed and thus it is common and well understood that it can be used to as veg dip.
Let me ask you, is the use of ranch dressing with uncooked vegetables also strange to your people?
What do you eat on sandwiches will jelly?
Do you even have jelly…or sandwiches?
As the US National Peanut Board confirms, "Contrary to popular belief, George Washington Carver did not invent peanut butter." Carver was given credit in popular folklore for many inventions that did not come out of his lab. By the time Carver published his document about peanuts, entitled "How to Grow the Peanut and 105 Ways of Preparing it For Human Consumption" in 1916, many methods of preparation of peanut butter had already been developed or patented by various pharmacists, doctors, and food scientists working in the US and Canada.
that's awesome they reverse engineered the server. i've always wanted to try for simple early 00s games that had multiplayer
How's it going my wizfriends? I have nothing going on in my hollow life right now. Aside from changing from laying down with computer (on floor) to standing up with computer (entertainment system cabinet as a standing desk) a week or so ago. I feel better because of that. Think I'll nihilistically commit to a useless project like making an operating system.
If you're into standing you should get a VR headset. I've been standing for 3-4 hours a day since getting Skyrim VR so that I can play it. I can't say I feel any different but I do enjoy playing Skyrim in VR.
How may of those 3-4 hours are spent in the company of nude mod'ed she-elves?
They're male where it counts.
it's not even 5pm and i already want the day to end
I've spent 18 hours in bed today, sleep was most likely not more than 6.
I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing with my life anymore, I just want it to end.
sometimes i put some talk radio on and doze off
but if i do that i have trouble going to bed early (9 to 11pm that is)
I literally don't know what to do anymore.
I'm just sitting here at my PC doing nothing.
May it be end times.
do you know of any good time wasters? I like crosswords and geography quizzes
Draw, write, sculpt, model, compose, fap, exercise, game, chat.
Cracking the cryptic has some good sudoku puzzles everyday. You can play them if you follow the link in the descriptions, and then if you get stuck, you can watch the video to figure out their weird tricks to solving them/figuring out the rulesets.
There are more than just 2 Earths–many more, in fact–and they mutually impinge on each others' boundaries at a velocity which would daze our mortal minds. What you call "reality" is shifting at this very moment. You are just not aware. Last week you were a giant spider, as was I, and we argued over the edibility of some species of insect. This week you are here talking about peanut butter.
i really dislike the scenes in anime where they eat food, especially delicious looking food, or feasts, etc. it does nothing for me, i find it kind of annoying, and i usually skip past it. i dont know what it is, maybe because they arent really eating food and they make weird sound effects and its not realistic enough to make me think if it as food. real food stuff can be cool, especially when they show them preparing and cooking it. but with anime it feels empty and weird. like a time filler, when they need to pad time they just throw in awkward eating scenes and make the characters overreact like theyve never had food before in their life
some other things i dont like in anime… succubi with glasses, floating magical animal mascots, crying babies or children. also kissing and relationships in general, i just skip it… i really just want to watch guys fighting each other in giant robots or maybe in medieval times with big ass swords.m
Full agreement. What are some shows that fit your criteria?
I plan to get into some mecha series after some additional japanese studying.
As for my crawl post
Recently been thinking about making a chan that is focused on ascension.
Surely this is a bad idea, no?
Moderating a chan and cultivating a quality culture seems difficult.
Not worth the effort for the output either.
Sometimes I wonder if there's a neurosis at play when it comes to anonymous posting.
Although it's enjoyable to put effort into posts, I sometimes feel as though I'm missing something larger, it's myopic by nature
Wouldn't the time be better spent studying and writing in one's own journal, or something to that effect?
My eyes glaze over whenever manga characters start going on and on about food and what ingredients were used to make them.
>succubi with glasses
You are a homosexual.>floating magical animal mascots
Alright, you just don't like cute and fun things.>crying babies and children
Reasonable.>kissing and relationships
Reasonable and understandable–>guys fighting each other in giant robots
Yes, but why not have giant robots AND cute succubi?
Ascension? What kind of ascension are you talking about and how far would you be willing to go for that chan if people stick around? Would you be willing and able to moderate out bad information and possibly take your community even farther if it grows large enough?
Being afraid of evil spirits is just the adult version of being afraid of the dark
I agree. I also skip songs. Basically the same things I skip in Tolkien novels. I liked shokugeki no souma though.
>>282614>What kind of ascension are you talking about
By ascension I mean elevating oneself beyond their current condition; namely, their consciousness.
Most imageboards are purposeless in nature, a product of the times
There are many facets one can take to begin the process
There'll be a Contract that every user needs to adhere to
This Contract can be modified through discussion
for example, no talk of sex, modern news
The golden rule would be:
Every poster wants to elevate their consciousness and adhere to Nature.
So, being vitriolic under circumstances violates the rules, that's spiraling down.
You see many venomous peoples out there nowadays
>and how far would you be willing to go for that chan if people stick around?
I foresee discussions around understanding reality.
The paths available if one wants to go beyond reality.
A library to access.
>take your community father if it grows large enough?
This is a great question, and shows how naked I feel in the event this passes.
It also shows how shaky my beliefs are still.
I am not sure whether it is smart to curate and give information willy-nilly.
But the world I want to see is one where information is shared freely amongst good-natured peoples.
But when information you worked for is taken by myopic peoples who'll hurt you… but yet did I really work for it?
Nevertheless, you can see why I play with the idea. Because the probability of success is rather small.
And within that small probability of success, I'm not sure if the fruit is comparable to the effort involved.
The current path paved seems lonely and bare, but perhaps that's what one needs to prepare for instead.
Because an optimal community requires two things:
1. a desire to improve everyone else
And we're migrating toward trustless systems.
My $175 earbuds I brought two years ago finally decided to die. I barely even used them but the planned obsolescence is real.
What aspect of them made you decide that they were worth the pricetag of $175? Was it because they were a brand name, or endorsed by some influencer? If none of the big selling points advertised with them was that they were engineered to outlast other models, then yeah you can expect them to just expire eventually. Earbuds are tiny fragile things by nature, with a lot of current running through them.
Cheap, sub $100 headphones were complete shit at the time. It was at the start of the lockdown where everyone was buying up electronics, too.
man fuck wireless earbuds
i hate wireless shit
give me a fucking cord
The headphone jack is going the way of the dinosaur thanks to Crapple. Just get wireless headphones bro. I used to be like you - against the wireless trend. But it's time to stop living in the past. Embrace wireless. Except wifi - fuck that shit. Run Ethernet to every networked device that'll take it.
I want to strangle every norman I see wearing airpods. They look so stupid. I just want to push them down and kick and beat them senseless.

I got a pair second hand from my sister, and they're surprisingly nice. I thought they'd get lost and have a shit battery life but they come in a case that charges them too, so they stay together and charge whenever you're not using them. I will say that I fucking hate how wired connections disappeared over night. Especially on my desktop, I now have to use a wireless set of headphones, and when opening certain games or programs it will randomly switch audio channels and it's always at max and if fucking blasts my ears out every time. Wired was so much fucking easier, I put it in and it goes. And it's so inconvenient pairing the damn things and having to worry about fucking battery life for things that use to run perpetually.
