Something very subtly shifted in me recently. I just feel sort of alright. Quite bored with no real desire to do anything, but not exactly suffering either. It feels as though I’ve finally managed to internalise the fact that everything is transient. Just drifting down the stream. I don’t feel particularly bitter or angry towards anyone or anything. I don’t feel enlightened though, just fine. Not sure what to do with myself though. Is this all there is?

Life is really really dull. My mental health is more stable and generally better than ever. I’m completely sober, no alcohol/drugs/nicotine. I eat fairly healthy. I sleep alright. I receive bux and have no real financial concerns. But goddamn, I’m so bored. I haven’t played video games for around a year. I’ve considered buying a console but honestly most games don’t interest me. I struggle to sit through movies/TV shows.

I've been trying to find educational videos on Youtube, but have been having a hard time of it. I don't want <=10 minute videos because they don't go in depth on the subject, so I've learned that you can filter videos by length. That's helped a lot, but then my search results are FUCKING 20 MILLION INDIAN TECH INSTITUTES. They're only marginally better, but I can't stand struggling through their accent and their manual handwriting. I've found that non-Indian videos at least have slides and better presentations.

South Indian Brahmins are Dravidian, but they aren't run-of-the-mill Dravidians, they're descendants of the administrative caste which had within living memory performed their administrative duties on behalf of the British Empire. It's like looking at the South and agreeing that yes most of them are of inferior celto-germanic stock BUT the southern gentry had to adopt to Cavalier aristocratic norms for multiple generations and that managed to somewhat reform their coethnic's generalized boorishness.
Ethnographically India's extremely complicated and simple lines of division based on historical administrative castes can't really make sense of a place where the descendants of Ghenghis Khan and Alexander III of Macedon formed the bulk of the armies of Islam. For anon's purposes though he's only really interested in high proficiency in English and thorough command of the subject, and selecting for prestigious institutions has a tendency to select for aristocratic descent which, in India, implies near-British proficiency with English in a multigenerationally-English-speaking household.

>i will never quite understand why humanity has let 'famous personalities' become a thing.

It's a easy thing to understand when you remember humans are just apes. Apes are hierarchical and in our species most of the people (normalfags) are obsessed with status, dominance and prestige. Even "God" in many ways is based on the big alpha ape meme, who is powerful, jealous, has many resources, etc. Celebrities are wannabe mini gods.

>(normalfags) are obsessed with status, dominance and prestige.

it's a very strange thing too. because if you don't play by their rules or embody what they like as a status-seeking, dominant person, they will tend to pathologize your behavior and make you seem dangerous and abnormal. e.g. calling you a "psychopath" or a "narcissist". on a semi-related note, i've noticed that likeability is the secret to social success. people who don't like you would rather see you dead, or suffering.

People have accused me of being a lolicon or a pedophile because of my waifu. However, I first got attached to her character when I read Fate/stay night at 16. Her character's age was supposed to be 18. So I was even younger than her at first. It's just that I kept getting older, while her character didn't. Alternatively, we could consider that she was 18 when F/SN takes place, 2004, so she'd still be older than I currently am.

I didn't even know she was 18 in F/SN and never considered it because it wasn't her age, some number someone made up, that I was attracted to. Artists and writer can just make up whatever character they want and at the very end slap on them any age, like 9 or 495. They can draw a hot sexy adult waifu and then say she's 12, and normalfags are always like "too bad, you're no longer allowed to find it hot and if you do, you're a lolicon".

Now, I actually like more her depiction in Fate/kaleid, but she's still a fictional character and not a human being with a real 3D birth date, and there's other depictions of her at different ages, so I can like her in Fate/kaleid and think of her as actually being 18 because that's her age in F/SN.

Or, because she's a fictional character, I can make up my own fictional scenario where her Fate/kaleid version suffers from some curse or magic spell that keeps her from physically aging, with her real age still being 2022 - 2004 + 18, and therefore still older than me.

Or maybe I could imagine some scenario where she's from the future, etc. I could keep going on and on, but I think I've effectively made my point.

Life IS dull. I've run out of things on the internet. Like you, video games, movies, TV, and anime are too boring. My so called hobbies don't entertain me either and I don't want to do them. Probably because I have no real hobbies, I guess. Still I enjoy going outside in the woods or mountains. That's bliss to me. I love being outside and listening to my favorite songs. I find it hard not to waste the entire day due to my bad sleeping schedule and idling. I want to be more productive, but I find everything so boring. It's hard to not waste the day away because of my bad sleep schedule and idling. I want to be more productive, but everything's boring. So instead, I'm trying to shoot for my aspirations in life. I'm trying to become the person I want to become. It's going slowly, but maybe I'll get there. I'm in a much better place, and I hope you will be too. We seem to be in the same basket.

I really dislike my current pair of glasses. I didn't buy them, it's a frame my sibling got but never used it. Super heavy, it hurt my ear and my nose a lot, it doesn't properly fit on my face, either. For years I endured this but now it's time to get new lens and I'm doing some research. I don't want a hard frame with damn screws everywhere and I don't want any weight. It's awful how every brand of glasses now tries to be cool and fashionable. Damn it.

After several hours of research I found out about these Miraflex ones. Usually they make them for kids. It's a very simple, silicone frame and it looks quite comfortable. Luckily they have a line for adults as well and I'm seriously considering getting one. Only problem is I can't find any reviews for the adult line. Hard to believe I'm the only person online interested in those. Couldn't even find more than a picture of an adult using one. Weird.

Years ago my father hit his head and was in coma for five days or so, and after he came back he thought he had stayed only one night at the Hospital. But then he went to another Hospital because he couldn't walk after the event, and there he was in a room watching TV, and the horse races were on. He was really into horse races when young, then he asked for his cell phone, called his friend and said he was on the horse club watching the races, and said "yes, but I left the Hospital and now I'm here on the races", and even pointed the phone to the TV so that his friend could hear the sound. I thought he was joking and asked "did he believe that?". His face got serious and he asked "what do you mean he believed?". He actually thought he was on the races, and the nurse had to explain to him that he was on the Hospital.

So there's something that can be done to the brain that might give you this degree of immersion into fantasy. Even unable to walk, inside a small room, laying in a bed half-naked and in diapers, just by looking at the image of a horse race on TV he had the perception of being there, probably devoid of all his limitations, living the experience, no matter how absurd it was given the conditions.

It's how people bypass YouTube and Twitter bans. Even if it asks for a number, enter in some random string and keep asking to resend the verification.

this is gonna be the first year i physically mail in my tax return i think. turbotax needs forms from irs, which needs an id.me account, which needs all kinds of address and identity verification and scanning. i spent an hour digging through old boxes trying to find a webcam i could use, since my phone wouldn't work wiht their face scanning bullshit. i was holding to my face, blinding myself with flashing lights from the scanning, trying different angles, to get the lighting to work, and after an hour it just told me to not talk, but i wasn't… so i must wait for virtual conferences with online agents to verify me and provide my documents and waiting over an hour just to be told an obscure error. as a neet that doesn't exist much in the real world i have nothing to prove my identity. i don't have to do any of that when i just physically mail it in. to think physically mailing something would become less complicated than doing it digitally… i'm realizing this is actually common. it is such a fucking hassle and pain to get digital things set up, but usually when they are set up they work flawlessly, and when they don't, it is catastrophic. i fucking hate doing taxes and interactign with government websites and services

That there is no "good" way to live your life. There is no manual or anything of the sort. You can do what you want. I like that life doesn't have any meaning. I like the freedom which comes with life. I like the inherent chaos in the universe.

I like also the fact that I am a completely unique individual. Yes, "special snowflake" this and that but it is true. We are all unique. There are no two people who are 100% the same. There is only of me and nobody can experience life the same way I do and nobody can see things exactly the way I see them.

I like that I live in the modern age, when every sort of entertainment can be accessed easily on the internet for free. I can read millions of books, comics, manga or watch whatever I want without much trouble.

I like the fact that I live in country which isn't too poor and it doesn't have any wars going on. I like that I have always food in the fridge when I open it.

I like my dogs and my family. I like that I am healthy. I like that I can be a neet. I like that I can live in solitude. I like my parents because they love me even as a wizhermit neet.

I like this site. Many interesting people here and people I can actually relate to.

I like daydreaming and living inside my thoughts/head. I like being a lazy wiz while knowing others wageslave for a living. I like that I am a wiz and don't have to deal with succubi and children. I like that I don't have to lick the ass of some employer every day.

After years of being a comfy bed poster I have now finally joined the ranks of the chair sitters. Eventually what ends up happening is I create a soft spot in the bed and it gets uncomfortable for sleeping, and I have suspicions that it's not helping my back to be sitting in bed all the time, so it had to happen. I will endeavor to sit in the chair from now on while using the computer and only lie in the bed to sleep. It feels a bit weird tbh. I like sitting cross legged which I can still do but not with my legs under the desk so it feels too far from my laptop to use on the desk so I've been using it my lap with the chair. That feels pretty good but still not as good as bedposting.

I'm also upgrading to a queen sized bed from my twin. My toes hang off the end of the twin. I tried sleeping in the queen bed in the guest room for a while now and I like it better. Unfortunately the cheap as shit mattress I got from Ikea is terrible. It came compressed in a roll with plastic around it but when I took off the plastic I saw a slight stain on the bed and then I tried out the bed (after a day) and it had a distinct soft spot slightly off center as if someone had already slept in it and compressed the springs. If I move a bit over off the soft spot while lying on the bed my hips are not flat from side to side, they are tilted with my entire body rotating because of the soft spot. I wouldn't be surprised if this mattress had already been returned and they just rolled the mattress right up again and put it back on the shelf. I am going to return it and get a more expensive one but I'm sure that will be a major pain in the ass.

true, i wish this sort of black-and-white thinking wasn't so prevalent in human society. you're either part of the "in group" or you're with the out group and i think it goes without saying how norms treat outcasts.

some people would consider it a nightmare if they woke up to find that everybody had been replaced by soulless automatons, but that sounds a-okay to me. no more dealing with the caprice of human beings, no more worrying about social hierarchies and mind games, just show up do your job and go home. and i probably wouldn't have to sleep through norms partying at 3 AM because machines have no need for such things.

I have no idea what "belief" means in this context. It's a real virus, but any investigation into its origins blows up from all the mutually contradicting interests involved, see bmj.com/content/375/bmj.n2414

If the world found out they suffered the coof because jews were worried about catching respiratory illnesses from arabs, so circumvented normal avenues of research and dumped american/israeli money into that wuhan virology lab, that would be bad for israel.

Most of them have thousands of reviews so people are buying them. It seems some esports teams sell branded versions so maybe I don't watch enough esports.

I think wizardchan is probably the only forum I've visited, and CERTAINLY the only imageboard I've ever visited, where longform posts are actually replied to and lauded. There's almost something akin to an 'anti-clickbait' atmosphere here. On other boards, posters put up a clickbait title, or a slutty thumbnail, and a post meant to engender responses via derision–and those and only those posts are the ones that get response. Here, I'll see someone write a goddam novel with a title like, "An Inquiry into the Causes of Remote Distillation," followed by a Ulysses-esque stream of consciousness, and there will actually be a healthy amount of discussion around it. I get the immediate response is going to be "Wizardchan is a slow board," but I don't think that's it. I've seen slow boards before, but even on those boards, people will only read the first and last sentences of posts at most. There's something more literate, contemplative, and patient here compared to anywhere else on the internet I've been. Granted, that's not exactly a great control point, but…

I don't have much energy to write a decent effortpost in response, but in my experience a few other boards have some good posts and posters, lainchan (i just visit for actual discusion, I don't buy into 'internet anime culture') has some good discussion, and even lolcowfarm can have some involved debate, but Wizchan being 'slower' than 4chan certainly helps. The speed of threads on the major non-hobby boards on 4chan make it practically impossible for a decent discussion to unfold. The 'Wizard' mentality and character to me was always one of thoughtfulness and contemplation, so it makes sense you'd see more of that here, even if Wizards are inceasingly rare.

I used to be mostly on r9k a decade ago or so, and we had actual meaningful discussions there too, you need (just a few things I can think of):
>a degree of slowness so people don't feel rushed to comment, or can even go away and think about things before posting and know that the thread will still be up to comment on.
>a sizeable number of higher quality posters who actually care about contributing to a discussion.

This is sort of one of the themes of 'Matrix Resurrections'. At one point the internet, imageboards etc were helping people make genuine connections and discuss real things in a real way.

But our culture is so saturated with commercialised bullshit, with the news cycle MSM domination of everything, with 'politicisation' tied to that domination, and with the culture of consoooming media and junk, that we're increasingly separated and silenced and alone, unable to really reach out to one another and talk about anything that's real. Most people's concentration span is short and constantly disrupted by iMessages or other notifications. People need to be building better systems and strategies for allowing meaningful discussion and avoiding bullshit.

We're saturated with NPC's whose whole 'purpose' is practically to keep as apart and keep us stuck on superficiality and rubbish.

(And yeah I'm aware of the irony in constant references to a movie, but at least it's one movie in the past decade that's touching on something that's very important at this point in time).

I used to not want to believe this, but I simply can't come to another conclusion. This is the primary difference between this board and others. And, I remember back in the day when it was extremely rare for succubi to be on the internet (pre "smart"phone days) that the internet was a lot more full of discussions like this. It's hard to dismiss such evidence.
- I don't think it's just slowness. I already addressed that.
- Sure, higher quality posters, but why?
- There are plenty of other places that have anti-spam rules as well, so I don't think that's it.
- This place doesn't have an anti-porn rule, so I don't think that's it either, but it does have an adjacent "no relationship talk" rule.
The "no relationshit talk" rule could also definitely be a mechanism. I think you're very likely to attract higher quality posters when they realize that they can't just flood the board with "my gf" posts, and have to try a bit harder to make a topic.
- This place certainly has a no female rule
Picrel/what you mentioned about females could definitely be a mechanism.

Yeah, it's too old. Not because it's taboo, but because by 28 (if you manage to graduate) you'll just have a bunch of student loans, zero marketable skills and no real work experience. Also since you're a wiz, probably zero social connections as well. If you're comfortable, you'll probably dig the hole deeper and get a masters, then a PhD? Then another degree in history, why not?

I suggest, don't even bother. Learn a specific skill that people will actually hire you for. Figure out what that could be for you and then maybe find a class or internship or something that will get you hands on immediately. Like you don't want a theoretical class about making cocktails, you want a bar job where someone just gives you the tools to practice and maybe even pays you a couple bucks.

Experts, therefore, recommend keeping your pet octopuses separated at all times, each in its own aquarium.

>As always, our main concern was the safety of our octopuses. For this reason, we placed a steady transparent divider in the middle of the observation tank. We left a small opening on the sides of the divider, merely big enough for an arm to squeeze through. Our goal was to give our octopuses the chance to interact by sensing one another with their suckers.


>We chose two of our most aggressive octopuses for this experiment. We transferred them to the observation tank, placing one on each side.


>We were ready to observe their reactions. We expected at least some aggression with lots of color changes. Nothing could prepare us for the amazing scenes that unraveled.

An hour in to this video and it's starting to get painful.

This autistic dude who claims to be a defender of the vulnerable would hang around kids and highschoolers 6 years his junior, and started dating one. Her dad found out and broke it up so they hatched a plot to kill the father and they did it, and it was a bloody mess, all in the name of defending succubi. The three amigos were interrogated and every one of their reactions and how they handle things has become its own case study, with this guy's going on for like 3 hours.

During the golden age of Wizchan, it was my favorite place to talk about all topics, just from the solidarity of being with fellow wizards. But now I don't feel as connected to the community here anyway.

tbh if I wanted to learn more about and discuss a specific game, I would find the games' subreddit a much more useful place than a /games/ thread. and theres no point in me being socially shamed into hiding that, just because 4chan has a feud. id take reddit over 4chan, which doesnt have the same shaming here. i mean theres plenty i hate about reddit, but at least on a sub devoted to X topic, it generally stays in X topic, better than any chan does.

apparently in common law the defendant in such a case owes a duty of care to whose who are directly injured as a result of their careless acts, but also to those who as a result are induced to rescue them. english common law makes no distinction between professional and lay rescuers, but prior training in the course of employment could be mitigation against a claim as they had foreseeable knowledge of what the rescue might involve, so it's less likely a fireman could bring litigation against you unless you were being particularly reckless

on the other hand, if the person contributed to the accident or hazardous situation they have a duty to rescue those in peril, but if in the course of the rescue attempt they cause further injury that could also be grounds for litigation. the duty to rescue also exists in cases where there's a special relationship, such as between parents and children, guardians, employers, etc, but in the case of property owners this duty only extends to invitees and not trespassers. basically it's a clusterfuck

Im 29 dropout and argentinian. So college education is different over here.
For example is free, even then, argentina has one of the lowest university graduation rates and the undergrad careers end up lasting longer(like an a average of 8-10 years). Also here the ways of getting money are different than in usa ( where i guess most people here are) getting a job in the public sector is more stable because of corruption.

Ive ended up coming to the conclusion, that a college degree is not for learning, nor to get money.

A college degree is about getting authority in a field you want to intervene.

We live in an age where everything they teach on uni is possible to be learned on the internet.

You can get a degree thinking on revenue (especially if you are from a private uni country), but nothing ensures that you are going to get the reward that you are looking for neither that reward to be is going to be worth the effort/path youve taken, even a job is not guaranteed. In any case, if you are just an average folk, to get money everyone is going the CS path (maybe theres a dotcom bubble someday, or something happens in asia and the field becomes terminally oversaturated).

Now if you have a goal or interest then the title gets you a little voice on that matter, a little bit of credibility, nothing else.

I want to get into regen bio, i dropped out at 21 because of family issues/socioeconomic shortcomings, at 29 will be coming back, dont even care about youngsters( except because i cant tolerate any kind of people). When i'd used to go, i had a 50 year old classmate, and the daughter was in the same uni.

Those places would be the companies of their rich parents who bought them into the school in the first place

Why wouldn't he march towards the mountains? Why should he be confined to the morals and values of penguin society? He marches on to see and experience landscapes which he has only seen from afar. While other penguins live comfortably and go through the same cycles, he pushes further beyond living more in his short few days left alive than 5 normal penguins combined. Even in death he was more alive than those normalfag penguins.

Yes yes yes, holing up in your wizcave playing video games for weeks on end is a noble pursuit, we get it truwiz-sama.

It is. Sitting on my ass and browsing imageboards is what the royalty of old would do today. I am a pious and noble man.

No I think the nobles of old had huge drug and sex parties with their rich cohorts like they do today. Not that it makes that a “noble” pursuit.

Thank you, wiz, that's a very interesting perspective that speaks a bit closer to me since I'm a latamfag as well, though the videos are still rather US-centric. I've also already been in college and also dropped out at 21.

The concept of student loans and going into debt to get a degree is alien to me and I wouldn't be going back if it were that way. I'm still not going to the free public university that >90% go to because I went there once to accompany a cousin and that place is a hellhole bursting with people. I remember once asking my cousin how many classmates she had in her classes and she told me all of them had over 50. That sounds hellish. Where I studied most classes were 15-20 people, and the core classes of my degree were 3 people (including me). Sadly, I won't have that same comfy experience since I'm gonna study a more popular thing.

Yes, having to make groupal acivities sounds like agony to me right now, i thought of this as well. I was going to go bio, but i know that it is the most crowded science, so i was thinking of choosing physics which has less and more autistic people,and later apply this to my actual goal.

What career are you choosing?

Oh god, that's bringing up flashbacks. Definitely one of the scariest, most anxiety-inducing in school is the teacher announcing that he wants us all to make teams of X people and adding that we should make them up ourselves since "we probably all want to be with our friends, anyway". In so many years of school I've literally always been the only one who ends up with no team at the end. Not looking up that at all.

>What career are you choosing?

Well, I was thinking of going CS since I like computers and programming, but looking into the college I'm planning to enroll in, they actually had an "ingeniería en desarrollo de software" degree. It's a college oriented into working professionally, making you get a couple of IT certificates as part of the curriculum, as well as having deals with companies to send students for internships. They call it "modelo empresarial".

Anyway, I actually wanna push working as far back as possible, but my mom's been pressuring me to get back to college since she's afraid that I'll be completely screwed in the future if I keep NEETing, which, yeah, she's actually right.

Have you been a NEET all this time since you dropped out?

Yes, ive been NEET for all this time, except for casual manual labor/ odd jobs here and there which dont matter for experience in any way. I had friends which i stopped seeing at 22 years old voluntarily. I've distanced myself from most people at personal level since then, and i was a room shut-in for like 3 months. I've been also on suicide watch at an hospital after suicide attempt.

I can talk to people, its just that i prefer to not doing it. I'm thinking of asking for an autism diagnosis. My suicide attempt was more related with a paranoia problem i had when i was 26.

It's funny because actually the darkest times of my life begin when i stopped playing videogames, watching anime, and visiting internet all together at 22 years old. At that time i stopped everything because i begin to ask myself why should i keep on living? What is the meaning? To end up coming with the conclussion that there's nothing actually, the only thing that matters is to play vidya, watch anime, read manga, and surf wizchan.

Nah I went back to school at ~23-24 after dropping out previously and it worked out.

The program I did was generally geared towards working adults, so most people were actually older than me. It's probably going to be like that unless you want to go live on campus somewhere in a probably not practical degree, then there would be a lot of fresh highschool kids and shit I guess. Also I only went for an Associates and still haven't (and likely won't) bothered with a bachelors.
