Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established
blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do
you have any tips or suggestions? Thank you

Welcome to Wizchan, enjoy your stay.


It's funny, for about 5 months now I've been sleeping on the floor. Not directly on the floor, I arranged a couple of blankets on top of eachother and folded a nice and thick cotton bed sheet around them in a way everything stay in place. I can just roll it up like a camping bed and store inside a drawer during the day.

Never gave it much thought until just now so I gave it an internet search. Not surprisingly, apparently a few years ago there was a fad on YT on a bunch o people making videos about sleeping on the floor and the amazing health benefits it has. Bunch of clickbait garbage and nonsense of course, but browsing through the results I didn't see a video talking about one undeniable benefit it has. I have so much space now on my bedroom. It's a very small room so the bed took most of the space out, barely any space for a chair. Now I have space to walk around in circles and stretch out, it's great.

It's also a lot easier to clean the room now, having one less piece of furniture in the way.


I’ve been becoming psychotic again lately I need to start being more mindful before I end up with another hospital stay


I have slept on the floor for 2 weeks and I noticed that I had no issues with getting up early during that time. I met on the internet someone who has been sleeping on the floor for 7 years but stopped when he got married. Maybe I will try it again one day, but for now I really like my bed.


I sort of angrily told a customer to get off their phone today (petrol station). I was really hostile about it and felt I should apologise when he came in to pay. Fortunately he didnt seem very fazed, just kinda suprised and taken aback by my attitude when i spoke to him.

One half of this job is ok (cleaning and restocking). The other half involves interacting with customers that i hate 90% of and pressing 2 buttons on a touch screen cash register. This is hell and im going insane. Today's little outburst is showing the cracks starting to form and one day soon i might start screaming at customers for incredibly minor things.


is it really dangerous? honest question, i dont drive

I’m watching Leon the professional. Is there supposed to be a weird sexual tension, or did wizchan ruin me?


No sexual tension between any of the characters. Showing the teen succubus acting erotically to entertain herself was just directed to show that she comes from a broken home and is culturally distant from Leon, and it was probably a ploy to attract viewers like me.

landlord gave me a luxury sedan and a 10lb salami. I don't have a driver's license and I'm off preserved food. Troubling…!


Why is your landlord casually giving you a car?


He bought it from a scrapyard to adapt as a UTV for an outdoor business, but after looking at it inside and out decided that it's impractical for the field but still a really road-worthy vehicle. I work at the business part time and offerred to work it off but he said I can just have it.

I keep waking up in the night with a sharp pain on the bottom of my tongue. It happens when I'm deep in sleep. I feel around and there's no way it could have been from me as I really have to stretch my tongue to get the painful parts to my teeth and even then biting would just make a sore area much larger than the small knicks I'm feeling. I'm pretty sure it's one of the rats or mice that own the house. I know they climb on me and have been after my crunchies for a while. The bagel I had on my desk just inches away from my sleeping face was chewed up overnight. I'm not going to put it past them trying to get in to my warm wizard body but I don't know why they'd be so bold as to eat me alive from the inside out. Maybe they smell something tasty on my tongue. Maybe they're trying to warn me. I'll record my sleep tonight and see which fat rat is snacking on my palette. If it's spiders I'm just killing myself right then and there.

>spiderkissed, the chosen of arachne


Does anyone know a good site like myanimelist or imdb but for video games?


I wouldn't doubt that I'll be able to finish those videos I challenged myself to do. Obviously, I had doubts I could do it. Still, if I'm able to finish a majority of videos, even half, by the end of May, I'd be happy. Sometimes, I find it hard to study or do anything, even on my days off. I'll just stare at my phone. It's not like I even want to do anything that day. I don't want to game or anything, just relax. By the end of the year, I still want to learn a lot more about security, networking, and operating systems. It's a lot to learn though. I won't feel complete or decently smart without knowing more. I feel so ill-educated in so many things.

feel physically unwell

I want to sniff that flower


So you are scared of spiders dumping their eggs in your mouth but not of city rat full of toxins taking a little bite ?


i remember once waking up to seeing a cockroach.. and i spent the next week bugproofing my room. duct taping every tiny gap or entrance into the room and installing mesh covers over the air ventination, blocking the door gaps underneath, adding foam around window

id lose my mind if i ever saw a rat in my room


I was thinking about the film "To Have and Have Not" again. In particular, how Walter Brennan's Eddie character made the whole movie for me. They establish early on that the question "Have you ever been stung by a dead bee?" is something of a shit test or shibboleth, as every character who doesn't get Eddie's issues treats the question matter-of-factly or with outright derision. However, every character who plays along with is usually the 'good' character.

Over time, I've come to love this film, and I can't solidly put my finger on to why. I think it mainly has to do with Eddie's character, but also the subtlety of everything. Everything is obvious, but nothing is overt. The good characters are simply understanding, and nothing more. There's humility, and it's not contradictorily pointed out.

Thank you for reading my review.


Interesting, thanks wiz.

Hope it was worth it, got "lucky"?


This wizard's carefree days are over.

For those of you still coasting by on the will and love of your family, on the bux of neetdom or investments of crypto, watching anime and getting in to fights over the internet… Treasure these times, as they will eventually come to and end. Keep doing what makes you happy and follow the path of least resistance as you float down the lazy river of blissfull male melencholly, but just make sure to remember these good times, and to every now and then try to make some new good memories. Some day, memories will be all you have. That's just the way of life. You can try to escape it by pursuing new excitement around the clock, or you can embrace it and live in peaceful passivity as the days grow shorter until they stop appearing at all. When a tidal wave comes to sink your ship and a blue curtain of certain death is cast upon the horizon… Will you senselessly flail and grasp at bubbles of hope only to die too tired to dream? Or will you close you eyes and let your life flash before you while the warmth of the ocean carries you to your own personal heaven?


This NEET is on vacation for a week, living alone at the coast. Abundance of my fav foods. It's like paradise.

Got this stuck in my head.


Been there done that and now I'm at the end of my rope, looking back I enjoyed next to none of it. It was all meaningless fluff in the end.


Is it just me or has there been a lot more traffic recently? What happened?


Cheers wizzie.

I brought an HD598 headset nearly a decade ago and it is still going strong. I did have to replace the earpads a few years ago, though.


Started exercising again at my home gym. I alternate between using an elliptical and a biking machine each for 30 minutes. I then do 4 sets of easy intuitive weight-lifting with dumbbells. Watching myself get visibly more in shape before my eyes makes me feel really good. Re-sculpting a healthy masculine appearance will be really good for my confidence as well. I've also been growing out my beard since I have always had a personal suspicion that any amount of shaving either damages your facial hair follicles or destroys them by pulling out hairs. I'm not really obsessive over being masculine since I've always been more of a cerebral person, but I'm feeling good.


Wish I knew how to replace the earpads on mine, they've been slowly becoming gross and uncomfy the past few years..


I went outside for a moment at 5 PM today. It was a nice day, and it got me thinking how I wanted to stay outside. That later turned to how absolutely empty everything is. In our society, it's roads and a bunch of shops. In the immediate, small amounts of wilderness near me, it's just woods. There isn't much else but trees and a few uninteresting plants that would serve no purpose to a human these days. Nothing to eat, if you catch my drift. I guess there are really no actual wilderness places that people can connect to like a river that was used by some Native Americans to trap fish was. Or near that river was a mountain full of rhyolite that could be used to fashion tools. wilderness places have become boring and sameish while we've made this place where yes, we can get whatever we want everywhere, but it's spread out, privatized, and foreign to multiple (non-existant) peoples/groups. The human world has become stretched and painted gray. The wilderness around us holds no meaning. It just exists. Also there's nothing to do in the wilderness other than walk, but I guess it's all boring. It's always been boring if you're getting that idea too. At least we have tons of media, games, and other distractions.

this is my favorite chart. i remember first seeing it almost 10 years ago. they keep updating it and stuff just keeps becoming more efficient, it's so cool to check back on it and visually see some method had a breakthrough


I apologize if this comes off as cynical, because it is nice to look at some sort of progress in this world, but what do those numbers pragmatically mean? Does getting to 56% solar cell efficiency mean some sort of energy production breakthrough? Wouldn't a better chart be to look at "Joules produced at equitorial equinox solar noon peak per $ production cost"?

Can't tell if the guy filming is a troll or just retarded.



Went to the nearest big shopping centre the other day (or mall as you yanks call it) for new shoes and wagecuck pants. The plethora of redundant "trendy" clothe stores that all stock the same shit, the average person looks like shit, The 'attractive' succs with 4 layers of makeup smeared across their face look like shit, the /fit/ fags covered in tats looked like shit, caught my reflection in something for minute and i looked like shit, the elderly limping through at a snails pace, looking like that dude in robocop that gets covered in acid. Everything about it was absurdly grotesque. Almost like looking in a funhouse mirror. Desperate, sweaty people of every race, creed and age vibrating into each other in a place that looks like a large scale public toilet. I know these observations are trite as fuck but i haven't had to go anywhere like that since before the pandemic started so it felt particularly overwhelming. I can't even imagine how your average person would enjoy it.


Those pics are from the 80's when shit was "good" it's way worse now.

posting about health on wizchan is always a mistake. it's begging for some smartass to tell you to sleep over burning charcoal and stare at the sun to magically cure whatever you suffer from


Welcome to the club.



How much water should i be taking? I've been eating a lot of salt.


what climate are you in, what physical activity are you engaged in, how much water/salt are you consuming? the only way your body can remove excess sodium is by the kidneys excreting salty water which you piss out. if you consume too much salt and dont increase water intake proportionately, you are in the literal sense dehydrating yourself


Sleeping on hot coals and solar gazing is what got the human race out of caves.


Concrete hell full of parking lots. I don't think this is the right way to do things. Get rid of the cars and you free up so much space. No cars, no parking lots and less roads. Less traffic too. Most importantly, more land for wilderness. More green.


reminds me of early 2000s internet browsing with all the ads on the left/right sides of pages


the whole (you will eat ze bugs) is a BS meme. instead i think in the USA they will just make us eat the brazilian beef/ultra low quality beef that will fuck us up with cancer and make males grow breasts. its over for us meateaters unless we buy organic.

just seafoodmaxx


have you ever had beyond burgers? Try a double beyond burger


It's funny because in Brazil people say all the high quality meat produced here is sold abroad and the shitty, low quality product is sold locally. Now, I had burgers in the US and I do have them here and they mostly taste the same. Truth is there's an international standard to produce and commercialize meat and everybody is following the same rules, so everything everywhere must taste mostly the same, unless you're eating at some really shady places.


im switching to eating doner



This place is a knock-off of wizardchan.


Is this a Donner party joke, or does it have some other meaning?

Doner kebab although not on a shish but its in a pita with lettuce tomato onions aka lamb gyro


The older I get, the more I appreciate being alive and existing. How short life truly is. And beautiful at the same time.

If you are an egoist you really have no reason to hate life. All life-denying comes from the community oriented thinking of moralism, with its not stepping on other people's toes and all that. If you love yourself and live for yourself then life can be breath-takingly amazing.


And here's a guy who never heard of chronic pain or illnesses of any kind.. or poverty. Or anything really. Never had to foot his own bills, either. Completely insulated and clueless.

You're incredibly ignorant about the world, that's why you came up with that ridiculously silly conclusion. With all due respect anon, you're not the ultimate individualist, you're just an idiot.


>if you love life then you never faced true hardship (unlike me)

But the bad parts are necessary in life too. Otherwise you would get bored of the good parts and things in life. If you could isolate yourself completely and live for your hobbies all day then eventually you would get bored of them. But not just your hobbies, you'd tire of life generally too. A mix of discomfort/suffering/struggle and peace/pleasure is what makes life good.


You completely missed what I actually contested in your post. You're an idiot anon. But that's a good thing I suppose.


No, I didn't? You argued literally that one can't love life unless he is deluded.

And that itself proves you yourself are deluded and full of sour grapes.


perfectly describes me. living like a king, i love life. fuck hardship i like being insulated


aloe is such a fucking troll lol

tried eating a big ass leaf. it's bitter and rubberlike, difficult to chew because it's so slippery. and as you chew it it turns into lube. incredibly silly plant

this was half the aloe leaf i ate. the thing was like 30 inches long absolute madness


Yeah I have a kit and have done a few locks and doors before but the locks on storage units are special two-sided and unccuttable. They need to be crushed with a proprietary hydraulic tool


How about paying the bill and hauling your stuff out of there? You don't even need to money, if you have access to a credit card use that and then don't pay the bank. If you have zero money and will have zero money in the future there's nothing they can do.

About a year ago I talked about some guy wanting to purchase my MAL account just because it was old. I was going through my mail just now and found his message again and decided to check his account. Judging by the empty watch history and last login date, the person gave up on anime just a month later after sending me the message. Guess I saved him some money, it was not going to be a lasting interest anyway.



Right below the aloe is the bitterness that you're tasting. To properly consume it, you need to get the actual aloe without the bitter part of the plant. I dunno, just look it up. Shouldn't be too hard.


Why would anyone what to buy a MAL account?


Someone left a comment on my profile and deleted it before I ever saw it once. That's the full extent of my communications on MAL. I need to add something like double the anime, but it just seems like an epeen yardstick and so I neglect it.


According to the messenger's own words
>I'm hoping to start something in the community and would like to buy an aged account.

I find very cool to look back on my list, I keep a very detailed log in there with exact dates, notes and scores for everything. It's over 12 years of my life in a list in many ways.

I do get messages every once in a while because I write reviews for a lot of obscure manga and people want to know where I read it or how to find certain things. One particular manga got an anime adaptation sometime ago and suddenly I got 3 messages because of the manga review I wrote for it like 4 years ago. All of them wanted to know where to find the manga because they wanted to read as well.


Or he bought someone else's account and abandoned his old one.

I wish there was a browser setting that would just automatically convert downloaded images into jpg/png/gif, or maybe tech companies need to stop being lazy and add webp support to their programs


webp is annoying man. so many folders on my computer are infected with random webp images


This makes your browser tell websites that you do not support webp, but it will only work with "nice" servers, it goes without saying that google is not one of them.

This lets you download images as png/jpg, however you have to use the extension button and it does not override the regular save button as webextensions are not allowed to do that.

There is also this for batch converting webps, for some reason you have to drop the files into its folder when it is already running as it does not convert files already present when it starts.

Had to share the elevator with a succubus today. Her hair was so greased together it looked like a single lump of horns. She had terminal halitosis that could melt a Lich, I barely made it out alive. Her outfit was made of 4 different pajamas parts and it all smelled like cat piss and bird caca. There was so much grime on her glasses I don't know how she could see anything.

I know there are people here who doubt witches exist but sometimes I'm not so sure.


could just be a drug addict


It wasn't so bad as that. She didn't look like a homeless drunk or addict, more like an incredibly lazy neet in a nonclinical stage of self-neglect.


Make it so that webps open in paint. You can use that to export it into a jpg

Disables the RTP until reboot
"Tamper Protection" restores user-defined entries to their factory state on restart, so we must disable TP with this key (create anything that's not present in your registry)

Unless it's been patched out. If it has, you can probably make one of those portable registry entry things and have it execute un startup


This is also present in my BIOS. But most likely it means detection of actual tampering with the physical parts. He should give that a shot if it just happens to be an option.


ive probably tried that in the past because i have that entry added and set to 1 already. so i know it doesn't work, but next time it real time monitoring is active i will check if it switches to 0


I just realized I look like an adult now, already in my mid twenties. Still can't grow a proper beard, but I've already fully matured. Few years ago I looked much younger. Guess I lost all sense of time.

so many things in life can be solved by knowing the vocabulary, the right terms for things, what words to google. like each industry has created thousand of new word and terms for things. you need to solve a problem but you don't know how to word the problem, and if you word it correctly the solutions jump out at you because people have solved this problem decades ago. i see it all the time as i learn new subjects. frequently i have problems describing mechanical fittings, how to connect various things together, brackets, fasteners, mounting systems. what's worse is you can often solve a problem using any number of different approaches so you use X and it works, but not as good as Y and maybe even more expensive, but you simply didn't know about Y. i feel like knowledge and vocabulary around various subjects could be organized better to faciliate self-learning and allow people to explore all these things on their own, not sure how to do it exactly though


We are in the third largest spike of covid cases right now since the pandemic began, but looking around you wouldn't know it. Everyone has dropped mask mandates and almost no one wears them anymore. I guess after a certain point people just get tired of it. I wonder how bad it would have to get before people go back to trying to do something about it.

>I just sit here refreshing wizchan and playing games and watching youtube
That's everybody. Also what games?



Sonic Mania? I liked that one.


yea its fun


I really think it’s because people actually stay home when they are sick with covid.


I think people have realized:
1 - To have an actual influence, you REALLY have to close shit down.
2 - If you REALLY close shit down, then you will kill your economy.
3 - If the 'cure' kills your economy, the disease has to be really, REALLY bad.
It didn't help that covid essentially turned out to be a thinly veiled scam that was only propped up with massive amounts of propaganda.


well it's fucking annoying and shady and no one trusts government agencies anymore. you cant just force people to care about the shit

>In a landmark first, scientists have grown plants in lunar soil using samples collected during the Apollo missions to the moon. This is the first time plants have been sprouted and grown on Earth in soil from another celestial body.
how did this take 50+ years


They didnt just grow a plant on lunar soil, they added nutrients and water and such to make it similar to Earth soil. Perhaps the technology to give sterile soil nutrients like nitrate and such was hard/impossible 50 years ago


i think it is more bureaucratic slog. in the article i just noticed it says the request for lunar soils samples was initially made 18 years ago. jesus christ that is older than avg wizkid


Plants didn't exist before 1995

My hair is falling out, shedding
Just great, always had good hair
nobody in my family is balding, especially at my age
And he I am
I dunno if it's because of smoking, stress I experienced 2-3 months ago, some other health related issue or is it because I'm actually balding
I have low t and can't even grow a beard in my mid 20s. It's also falling out. I have no other choice but to shave my head and seek medical help. I don't want to fight to save it if it's due to genetics (too expensive and time consuming) but if it's health related then and temporal I have to do something.


all good wizards have white hair or bald heads and a beard

Nobody ever did and ever will give a shit about me and as soon as somebody, even my own family, actually contacts me it's always to leech off me in some form. Why are we playing this stupid game pretending to all be nice to each other when it's completely obvious we live in a world of pure egoism?

Does anyone here like the whole "hunting to find lost media" thing? Well, if so…I have something for you!

Here (https://file.io/05aHo7AnJQ2s because this place doesn't recognize ogg type files) is a song I really, really like. It makes me feel like I'm drifting away into the stars, and I always wondered if there was more of this song out there. I have attached it here. I'd really _really_ like to know where this came from. Here's what I know about it:

1 - I'm pretty sure I got it from a list on a Touhou wiki.
2 - It's part of the OST to a Touhou fangame, but I have no idea which one. I think it _might_ have been some sort of sports fangame? I think it _might_ (much less sure about this one) have been a soccer Touhou fangame??? I thiiiink (much much much less sure) it might have been a Patchouli-theme?
3 - The filename is pretty close to the original, but might be slightly different–the file type is probably different because I got on a whole sperged-out RMS kick converting all of my music to OGG.
4 - I wouldn't be surprised if this was more than a decade ago now.

If anyone has any ideas of what I could do to find out where the hell this came from, I'd appreciate it.


This file has been deleted. According to the Touhou wiki (https://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Fangames#Sports), there are two soccer games.

Soccer 2 OST:


If it's from Touhou Soccer 1, not the expansion, you'll not find it on Youtube. I found a file on Moriya Shrine that has both the expansion and original game, so it'll probably have the complete sound track in the files if the (standalone) expansion has a different sound track.


So if you can't find it from the link, you'll have to download the game itself and maybe look through the files for the sound track.


Being a teacher must be so depressing. I hated school from elementary to high school. I can't imagine being trapped there again. I hate the idea of going back as well as having to deal with the crap from the other side. Grading homework instead of doing homework, teaching something instead of learning something, standing on your feet all day instead of sitting all day, etc. To top that off, you have to teach the same subjects while you stagnate academically and financially. Worst of all for the job, you have to deal with the broken education system and broken kids. If you do find kids you like, you'll see them for four years and then they'll graduate. It' like being stuck in an eternal hell where people move on and you stay in the same place. The kids you teach will eventually be out in the world while you're still stuck in school. The people you knew from school when you were a student will be somewhere else while you're still at your school (or some other school).


What a slave mindset to have. Your life is yours to live in the manner that most pleases you. If being a wage slave doesn't please you then you should search for other options such as the neet life. Sacrificing your mental health for the sake of a job is putting the cart before the horse imo.


I've thought a lot about how I should have become a teacher. Its what everyone was always pushing me towards with my useless knowledge. But I rejected it for the reasons you mentioned.

Some of the things you mentioned might not be so bad for me. Like if I love the topic, maybe I can talk about it on repeat forever.

The standing part, is a physical aspect I haven't thought much about. But yeah it would suck. Every teaching moment, you're on your feet.

idk I wish I could have experimented in trying out teaching for a week, and see if I could do it, rather than have to invest 6 years of education and then find I suck


why does every cringe mobile game ad always have to be about how powerful a character/characters are?

like i've never seen a mobile game ad about a calm platormer or mediocrity


thats only because of the cure. honestly there should not even be a cure you either get a vaccine or you suffer and enjoy your big hospital bill ;)


>Why are we playing this stupid game pretending to all be nice to each other when it's completely obvious we live in a world of pure egoism?
Because the masses of idiots need to feel good about themselves to be able to produce/consume and to do stuff society demands from them. The best slave is the happy slave.


S-l-a-v-e. Why can't some people just live for themselves?


I realize that driving, brings out the worst of true human nature, pure egoism, in the same way anon internet boards do. Its semi-anonymous and you feel invincible in a ton of metal. And so you see raw humanity unconstrained by social pressure.



I could see teaching as viable under these conditions:

1. It was considered just teaching about a subject and filling a student's brain with knowledge for the good of everyone
2. It was paid very well
3. The education system was mostly fixed. Less disrespect to teachers, more pay, less eyes on a teacher's personal life. I say that last one because the thought of doing something adult-like, like getting drunk, going to bars, or personal hobby stuff that's outside the norm, in my opinion, shouldn't be counted against how good a teacher is. Especially for wizards who are just not normal in a conventional sense.
4. Teachers take a lot less shit from kids and parents. I say this again because there are troubled kids who need help and dickhole parents. For the kids, either the teacher needs to be skilled in solving these problems or kids like that should have outside help that coordinate with the teachers. For dickhole adults, teachers shouldn't have to tolerate that shit.
5. Teachers can sit the fuck down

With that, I wouldn't think teachers as being stagnant, but just doing a regular, well paid job or are already at a point in their career where they're at the top of their game. Teachers would get the respect and humanity they deserve and don't have to suffer from parents or administrators. This is not very detailed, but I don't have the knowledge or patience to get into it with one post. This also isn't mentioning how screwed up teaching is throughout the board. Babysitting elementary schoolers, getting shit pay unless you're a college professor, who, probably is dedicated to his own work to not teach as well. It's all just a shitshow. Also I'm sure teacher assistants are exploited as well as substitutes. No proof on that right now. I just didn't have the interest before making this post. I'll probably look into it now though.



Sincere thanks for some hard leads. I have searched through Youtube before, and I'm guessing I already saw the Soccer 2 OST and therefore got really disheartened, but I hope to get to somewhere with better internet soon to try out the soundtrack files from your second link there.

it urks me when i try to bookmark a page and i later revisit it to find it's different

good example of this is when a website is paginated reverse chronologically. so you have page 1 which is the most recent content. so i bookmark page 10, come back a year later, and that page is now something like page 73

forums do a good job with this, the first page is always page 1 so they don't break

I think it worked


Tried to google and bing (DuckDuckGo) what NWD means in Love Live SIF. Only found that BFCM means "Black Friday Cyber Monday".

Turned on VPN, searched through Yandex and immediately found out that it means "Nine Wave Dolphin". Would be sad if Yandex search engine would cease to exist.


You can't really tell because it's the same text you're reading twice. Yes I read the second time faster and got the meanings faster as well but that happens in any second reading of a short piece of text. IMO the way that image set things up leads you to the wrong conclusion about the effectivenes of the method. It forces you to assume this is the result of the Bionic method when it's just the effect of reading the same thing twice.


I read the second one first and it was still quicker for me.


I read the second one first because I just got done reading a shitton of manga.


As a fellow autist, I hate faggots like you, someone is going to break your neck if you keep acting like an asshole for minor things and I hope it happens sooner than later


I've seen the same phenomena. There are basically only four search engines nowadays:
1 - Google/Bing/DDG/Yahoo/etc.
2 - Yandex
3 - Wiby
…I'm not sure the 4th counts as a 'search engine' now that I think about it.
4 - Curlie

And yeah, I'll usually end up using Yandex because it actually gives me what I'm looking for. The other trick is to use millionshort to avoid the "one" Western news megachannel (CNN/MSNBC/FOX/ABC/CBS/VOX/VICE/NPR/PBS/BBC/etc.).


You held up the line at a gas station to post this


>1 - Google/Bing/DDG/Yahoo/etc.
Is there any technical reason you conflated these? Each one returns different results. DDG for example doesn't hide piracy stuff like google on their results.


Not him but there was a moment when all the piracy sites disappeared in the search results not too long ago on ddg.

Crow 64 seemed like such a boring ARG. The plot is standard, someone died and now someone's sad. With more context, someone's kid died and the Dad is sad he couldn't save her. It has more effort than other ARGs with it being an actual game, but the ARG seems about as subtle as a brick. The video titles are also boring and don't provide any story. It's just the same generic "scary" titles like "Underground level", "Catastrophe Crow 64", "Video", "Forest Level", and "_". I assume the videos I saw were either from multiple accounts of the ARG creator or randos who reuploaded it. Not sure. If it's the former, it's just so boring and stale to have a video with these generic titles and no descriptions. A person who finds this or uploads this would add context. Even if this is a lost game, it seems it was better to be lost anyways. The game is short with generic music and levels. The game is only a husk for this ARG. It seems too uninspired to be an actual game anyways. If it was meant to just be a vessel for the story, then it's a failure of the story to not include how the game was gotten. Even then, you're so limited in believably if you didn't make the game. If you claim to make the game, you have a better chance, but by uploading the game, it seems like you're trying to push your ARG onto people. I think the creepypasta "MARIO" is a good example on how to do this then. The creator didn't push the game on anyone, and the guy who made the creepypasta was just a random guy who found it.

I remember hearing about this theory from MatPat a while ago. I don't watch him, but I was interested in the new ARG. It showed promise since it was a gaming ARG. Still, after the first few minutes, I knew it wasn't going to be very good. It's a shame. I think the effort's wasted in its lack of subtlety and generic story. Although, to be quite honest, I haven't seen his video and only the video series of the games. I wanted to watch them quickly to make sure I was right. It would seem I was.


i think there's an exhaustion with particular kinds of speculation as you age, but other stuff opens up to you


It's an actual game? I remember a couple years ago YT recommended a video about this. I watched maybe 5 minutes and assumed someone just swapped Mario for a crow and made the atmosphere creeper. Didn't know there was actual effort at an actual game behind this. Interesting.


Black grog and Winegums for dinner again (trying to lose weight)

When was the last time you were rewarded for such a mental exertion? When you learned something that you put to use? Sample around to find something that you may find pleasure in learning about if the knowledge can benefit you. Don't ever feel down for not feeling the drive the learn about random topics. Better to know a lot about something important to you than to know a little about everything tbh. Better yet, if you're not in the mood to learn, try teaching. Being thanked for sharing knowledge is a great way for any man to feel good about learning, and could encourage you to learn more.


neighbor family sold their house to a investor or something. they all left for good today. very smart, their place is absolutely trashed and full of garbage, they have legit trees growing from their root gutters, mattresses in the front yard, trampoline-sized burn pits in the backyard, the entire property is full of broken glass and garbage, yet they still managed to get like $370K for the sale. insanity. i went over there and appropriated some pyrex cookware half buried under their backyard porch, some gardening tools they left behind in the big trash pile, also got a bunch of pots i can grow stuff in. i also took a cutting from their front yard rose so i can have my own roses now. they have this massive ghetto ramp going down from their backyard porch into the backyard, it's like 20 feet long. i think it was for their dogs maybe they had hip problems. their property is a corner lot and their lot is like 3x the size of ours. i stepped on a lightbulb and cut open my foot. gonna take all the landscape rocks tomorrow and noone can stop me




It's not smart, they probably could have gotten at least $50k more if they just took a month or two to clean the place up.


All my favorite imageboards are dying, wizchan is the only one left.


pretty sure the house is getting razed so yeah it's smart. price is a product of their bigass giga lot size and the uppity townification of this part of the county, tons of construction has been going on for years they are transforming this place into fagtopia



I did some extra digging. Apparently it's either a unity project or standalone. Still, it's way too similar to Mario 64 to not make the connection. I hope to find someone who agrees with me. People need to stop making ARGs like this.

I think even ARGs that rely on cryptic titles, no descriptions etc. are boring too. I feel like a lot of the Youtube ones are super boring or samey even if they have different plots. The execution is the same. They'll have videos that show the plot, and inside the videos are cryptic hints, or worse, just plain out in the open. Rinse and repeat for every other Youtube ARG.


Any Youtube ARG channels you enjoy?

Mitarashi dango and kashiwa mochi were translated as mitarashi dumplings and kashiwa dumplings. Despite the fact that knowing the difference (even without knowing the details), paints different picture during the first read. This simplified half-assed official approach needs to stop.

One is dango, the other is mochi. Why castrate? For casuals? *seething


I haven't found any particular ARGs from Youtube that are good. I think I have specific tastes in ARGs though.

Friday. I'm limiting my game consumption to fridays in order to not burnout again and it's finally here. Guess I'll try some shitty rpgmaker horror games for today.


and here we go again, slow to a crawl…


Any wiz know a good cheap way to soundproof your room? I'm thinking thin boxes filled with newspaper along walls, and big boxes filled with newspaper a few feet in front of door.


I read that carpets work well. The heavy ones that block sound are expensive though.


there is only one way to stop sound really. you need a wall of mass between the sound and you. steel, brick, stone, dirt, etc

home builders commonly do this by doubling the drywall

foam and newspaper does nothing, it is just a fire hazard. it does reduces echo within the room and improve recording though. but noise can still enter the room from outside no problem, it just doesnt bounce around inside as much if you have foam and shit


I see. So how's boxes of gravel + sand to fill in cracks?


Actually, I've got it: I'll just hang out in my garage instead of my bedroom.


that would work. but i really wonder about your living situation if you're consider putting boxes of gravel in your bedroom. what's the source of the noise? is it coming from a single direction? is it loudest near windows? i automatically assume everyone here is a poor neet like me so i hesitate to suggest buying thermal accoustic insulation, adding drywall layers, etc. but if you can figure where the sound is coming from you might be able to block it

Damn this show about bobba fett is garbage. Why did you do this Disney?


I admit, I don't get Star Wars. It's shit, absolute shit. It's silly in all the wrong ways. The villains are pathetic, heroes are bland and one-dimensional. I'm not trying to be offensive, just my honest opinion. I can understand if you were a kid in the 70s and becoming a fan when that stuff was coming out but I don't understand the appeal for younger generations.

I see SW fans talking how bad the new movies are and every time I wonder wtf they're talking about. The older ones were just as bad. I feel like SW fans can understand why SW is garbage when it's about the new stuff but somehow become blind when talking about the original trilogy. Even as a kid I remember finding it unappealing.

Why you like SW in the first place? Tell me the secret, I must be missing something. I like a lot of shitty movies myself like most Alien flicks and Starship Troopers but I don't see the appeal of SW at all.


They are dumb action movies and that's it. I agree with you.
Star Trek is worse. Peak kitsch.


TNG star trek was nothing like star wars.


A vitamin B complex multivitamin fixed all of my hangover problems.

If you get a tingly feeling in your face and limbs after drinking then taking a vitamin B complex multivitamin may help.


I like the lore and world building, but it is just sadly executed badly. Jedi are like Buddhist-influenced sci-fi monk wizards with the freedom to travel the stars, often living in solitude alone on a forested planet, with the power to live completely alone, high above plebs.

>The older ones were just as bad.

I disagree, I'm not saying any of them are high quality but the quality still collapsed catastrophically


Spent the afternoon dozing off in a half awake half asleep state, had some pleasant dreams and that weird phantom limbs phenomenon where you move but can't see yourself moving. This one always amazes me.


>Jedi are like Buddhist-influenced sci-fi monk wizards with the freedom to travel the stars

Your description sounds so much better than the actual movies. Sounds like they should make a movie more about that and less about jedis that fuck up, goofy villains and pewpew guns.


Oh yeah, I enjoy the weird experiences that come from that, even if they're sometimes a little creepy. I woke up at 4 am today and immediately tried to go back to sleep while trying to recall what I'd dreamed, then I heard some knocking on my bedroom's door and woke up. It felt very real and I'm not sure if it wasn't, but it makes no sense that my mom would randomly do that.

Some days ago I felt a light tap on my back that awoke me, then I felt my bed sheet be slightly pulled from the front.


How can anyone not like SW? It is beyond me. These are the types of movies that are entertaining for both kids and adults for different reasons.
Take back what you said!

The new sequel trilogy I watched recently and I think they were unoriginal and had nothing particularly new about them, that is why they were meh for the most part for me except for The Last Jedi which I enjoyed the most from the new 3 movies. I just didn't feel the coherence or continuity between the movies of the new trilogy, I don't know how to say it, it felt like they just made things up as they went along instead of planning things out carefully beforehand. That and they tried to please fans of the Original Trilogy way too much. I liked the prequels better than the sequels.

But my point is, how can you not like it? They have lightsaber battles, space battles, and the whole epic feeling about them. Personally I like the video games and spin offs like books and comics better than the main movie story line. The spin offs had much darker tones at times. Talking about pre-Disney reboot things like KOTOR 2.

I like the lore and world building better than the main movies too. There are some good SW books out there. I'd argue SW is best when it comes to spin offs, at least pre-disney spin offs.

Believe me I would love to enjoy it, the more stuff you like the more stuff there are for escapism and there are tons of SW media out there. I'm not trying to dislike it but it's like I said, heroes are one-dimensional, villains are goofy and the laser guns and sabers are just ridiculous.

I tell you this but at the same time I like a lot of stuff that has the same problems and perhaps are even worse, so that shouldn't be a problem. I really enjoy a lot of old zombie movies that are worse than SW in several aspecs but for some reason I prefer the overall atmosphere so I can have fun with those. I also enjoy Mr. Vampire movies which are equally lighthearted and absurd. I think it's mostly the flavor I don't find appealing, the space opera aspec of it. >>290354 described it in a much more fascinating way than how the movies feel to me. If the movies were more about sci-fi monk wizards being monk wizards I guess I could like it better, but all movies are centered around whiny jedi bitches or jedi that fuck up.

I guess in my case if you're going to tell a hero's journey tale I prefer something like The Lord of the Rings, which I enjoy it a lot. I've tried to like SW but the setting just doesn't do it for me. I do enjoy how storm troopers look though. My brother enjoy the SW franchise and we talked about it a few times. He told me to play the first Knights of the Old Republic and I did. It was mostly OK but not nearly enough to start enjoying the universe.

something about the printed designs on double edge razor blade packaging reminds me of the past, maybe the 1950s? but these are all completely modern products. the typography and color choices are usually simple and pretty. i guess when all razor blades are functionally identical this is the only way you can differentiate your product. if i was a millionaire with tons of space i'd probably collect these


Well, Lord of the Rings was in many ways subversive of the hero's journey. When Frodo leaves the Shire, Farmer Maggot sends him off with respect and identifies him as the leader of the group, but when he returns, Maggot tries to regard him as the leader but eventually turns to literally every other hobbit in the group; you can palpably see that his respect for Frodo has diminished in direct response to Frodo's trauma-driven placidity. Star Wars is, intentionally, much closer to the Campbellian archetype, and it seems likely that your tastes just run in a more subversive direction.


The only enjoyable Star Wars media I have ever experienced was Battlefront 1/2 (original). I played 2 online more than both Halo games. I beat KOTOR1 a couple times and thought the overall story was dumb as fuck. The game was also incredibly buggy. The worst bug I recall was getting stuck in a spacesuit in a part that I shouldn't have even been in one. The suit prevented me from using any skills, so combat was basically guaranteed death. I lost so much progress from this bug that I never even considered playing the sequel.


There are several journeys in Lord of the Rings, I guess Aragorn would be the closest to the more traditional path but you have the tropes peppered through out all the characters. Gandalf literally falls in an abyss and goes through death and resurrection but he's also a mentor and helper for other characters. It's all in there somewhere.

feather > astra blues > astra greens > shark > derby > bluebird > supermax (all factual)


Are you talking about your shaving experience or you're just judging the packages aesthetic?


>Are you talking about your shaving experience
yeah, specifically sharpness i guess, but the most aesthetic one is obviously shark


You use safety razors? I always see them at stores and wonder if it's actually better than disposable ones.


Not him, but they're super cheap, last a long time, and in my experience shave better overall.

I was thinking about how much intelligence and confidence are codependent. Like an anxious person probably performs worse on a test than someone more confident, and failing will spiral further and of course lower confidence even more.
The confident person on the other hand reinforces their intelligence by performing better, even if they would perform badly, I doubt their confidence would decrease as much as the other way around.
So basically I'm thinking that confidence should be learned first before anything, I'm guessing how many children get told their are dumb when in reality they are lacking confidence to put the pieces in their brain together, or something.


confidence or the lack of it, in this academic context, is either a reflection of your ignorance or your intelligence and knowledge, and this is reinforced by people.
You can be highly confident but dumb and ignorant and fail.
More often than not confidence has little to do with success, in practical terms.


>More often than not confidence has little to do with success, in practical terms.
I think I disagree, yes confidence without intelligence won't work either. Still you can be the smartest person to live but lack the confidence to take actions that may lead to success. You can present an idea to stop world-hunger in a few years, if you don't seem confident while doing so people would get biased and skeptical before you finished explaining.
False confidence is something that breaks easily anyway, but confidence in itself helps you push on after you fail I believe. You could argue that the knowledge to know when to continue is part of intelligence itself probably.

i use them for dry shaving my balls lol. for that purpose, a single pack of feathers has lasted me probably over a decade now. before that when i had a job i used it like a normal person on my face. double edge safety razors seem sketchy at first but they are dead simple and effective. you can resharpen the blades if you want to go full frugal. the shaver, the blades, and sharpeners are all made of metal which is nice to have durable products not hunks of plastic

>I always see them at stores and wonder if it's actually better than disposable ones.
the main difference is there's no flex in the handle, so you have to shape it to the contours of your face manually, it can produce better or worse results accordingly. it's up to you if you wanna try it

today i would probably just get a straight razor, although it looks like it would take a few years of use to recoup the initial cost for a nice one, but you'd never have to buy blades again

that's pretty brave


I think I'll get a safety razor. My main problem with disposable ones is you have to shave every 3 days or so, otherwise the hair gets too long and it clogs the damn thing. I end up putting more time trying to remove the hairs stuck between the blades than anything else. I'm watching people using safety razors on YT and there's no way to clog them or for the hair to get stuck. We'll see. I'll try it myself and report back. I'm also going to use >>290383 standards and see if I can get feather or astra, but I have to check what's available around me first.

>straight razor

Now that looks interesting, but then you also need a sharpening stone and a leather strop thingie and I have very limited space. Seems like there's more maintenance involved with those than I'm willing to give.


i found it incredibly difficult to the point where i gave up, so expect your face to get all cut up


i got the merkur 34c. there really is nothing special about it, it simply works, any similar thing will probably work just as good. but i'll recommend it as a starting point for you to look at stuff

Well I'm back wizzies. Got this safety razor at a variety store close by for literally one solitary buck. Didn't have a label or anything, just the name of the store in a blister package. Only info on the back is it's made in India. Couldn't find any of the good razors mentioned by >>290383, the only one they had was Gillette Wilkinson so I got that. I had a week old beard so long enough to clog a disposable razor. I'm happy to inform this is not an issue with a safety razor. There aren't blades closely aligned together for hair to get stuck anywhere. So that's good.

There were a few problems though. First, this thing is a lot more slippery than a disposable razor. It's all metal and my hands were wet. The fact the handle is 7cm (2.7 in) doesn't help at all. Very short indeed and I was struggling to have a good grip on this thing, but that's what you get when you go for the cheapest of the cheap. This could use a longer handle, maybe 10cm (4 inches) would be best.

As for the shaving process itself, this was the very first time using one of those, I had no idea how to go about it. I watched a quick yt video and that was it. Used some shaving cream and got to it. My main problem was getting the angles right. It's tricky at first by not rocket science, you just have to experiment with it. The funny thing is I found safety razors too safe! There's a guard on them just under the blade that doesn't allow you to to make wide angles so you won't cut yourself. There were places where I did feel like trying wider angles but the safety guard on the safety razor won't allow it. I guess it really works because I didn't cut myself at all. I did get a small rash close to my adam's apple but that happens sometimes with disposable razors as well so I'm not blaming on the safety razor.

Like >>290427 said it just works. In fact I found it worked better than disposable ones for 2 main reasons: It doesn't clog when shaving long hair and for a lazy person like myself this is a must. The other reason is those razors are sharp as hell, man, Gillette doesn't fuck around with sharpness on their razor blades, way sharper than their shitty disposable ones, I'm impressed. I really like the result. By the end there I was already comfortable with it.

I'm such a noob with these, it's actually the first time I saw a razor blade upclose. Somehow I always thought they were rigid but nope, these are paper thin and you can actually bend them quite easily. Don't know why I thought otherwise.

Pic related you can see the result of a single pass, feels pretty good. I reduced the colors on my face there because I don't want half of my face in hd on the internet, but you can see the safety razor pretty well at least. This is probably the bottom of the barrel as far as quality goes but even this one does the job well. I'll continue to use it and if my first impression holds up I'll actually get a decent one. Maybe a merkur 34c like that wiz suggested.

Welp, that was that. And it all began with >>290378 casually posting razor blades. You never know what tomorrow will bring. Sorry about the blog posting but this is the first time I actually go out and purchase something solely based on something someone posted on wizchan. Blog's over.


Yeah well if you want deep and complex characters then watch Bergman movies or something artsy, these are made for entertainment.
>heroes are one-dimensional, villains are goofy
SW Universe focuses on dualism and a strong opposition between Good and Evil.
>the laser guns and sabers are just ridiculous

>Kotor 1

> I beat KOTOR1 a couple times
You guys are missing out, seriously. Kotor 1 is overrated as hell as it is basically another redemption story yet again, just like in the movies. Well it is set in a much more interesting period than the movies, though. But Kotor II is what you want and what SW movies should be like. I encourage you to try it or to watch a playthrough of it. It is so different from the feeling of Kotor1 and the movies, it is dark and philosophical and less black n white in its thinking than other SW media.

glad you liked it

>The fact the handle is 7cm (2.7 in) doesn't help at all. Very short indeed and I was struggling to have a good grip on this thing, but that's what you get when you go for the cheapest of the cheap.

it differs but generally they are shorter than disposables, it's likely to keep the weight closer to the head and to use less leverage. i'm guessing the grip was slippery from the plating applied afterwards, but as the other wiz suggested something like a merkur will just have the knurling cut directly into the stainless steel

>The funny thing is I found safety razors too safe! There's a guard on them just under the blade that doesn't allow you to to make wide angles so you won't cut yourself. There were places where I did feel like trying wider angles but the safety guard on the safety razor won't allow it.

the guard along the bottom is a closed comb, if you want more of the blade exposed you could get an open comb


Warhammer 40k can beat Star Wars


Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try playing it and see how it goes.


Hm, I didn't know about open and closed combs. Well I'll get used to the one I got and we'll see. I'll be trying different blades as well just for the fun of it.


I've been listening to EAS of various countries. It got far more interesting than I thought.

Here's the U.S..


South Korea's sounds like a dial-up modem. I shit you not, this is their actual EAS.


This is Italy's. It legit sounds like a dubstep sample.


Germany sounds like the beginning of an 8bit boss fight when the cartridge glitched out.


Chile sounds like something from the Earthbound soundfont.


Israel's is proper scary, but the most frightening of all, the one that feels just unsettlingly horrifying is…


1939 Poland.



was this a small sample that was looped incorrectly? the sudden stop and starting at various points seems unintentional


I have a very dark confession to make. I've lost my anal virginity to a young female nurse when she injected a huge enema into my ass because I had been constipated for weeks. It was a huge metal tube, longer than the average dildo, I was basically raped by the medical mafia. I haven't been the same since, not only did they anally raped me, but the nurse saw my penis, yes a succubus saw me naked and penetrated my ass with a metal tube. They've stole my anal virginity, they've stole my powers, I'm virtually gay now.>>290709
