do you think cochlear implanted microphones could record audio exactly as you hear it, perhaps after some slight modification. or would the recorded sound being played back somehow not sound the same making it through your ear twice essentially


Do you ever think about just how much media will exist in the future? Now say you are into anime or video games. Eventually you will play through all the good games or watch all the good anime and be left with nothing but to wait for new stuff to come out. Imagine kids born 100 years from now (assuming society hasn't collapsed or anything). They will have access to such massive quantities of media that they will be able to consume only highly rated stuff for their entire lifetime, even if they are NEETs who do nothing but consume media all day.

>do you think
>Do you ever think


If society would continue to move this way then it wouldn't be surprising if there's a huge underclass of neet consumers in the future who can consume media and games all day in their narrow closet apartments as long as they click enough ads. I think the neets of tomorrow will be turned into ad revenue generating machines but the world will most likely collapse by then or at least not be as functional as it was.


This is probably a long shot but I'll give it a try. Years and years ago here on wizchan there was this youtube channel people shared from time to time. It was this blogging channel by a middle aged guy, maybe in his 50s. He was balding and wore thick glasses. He would talk about what he had for breakfast or/and other meaningless daily life activities in a monotone voice. I feel he might be on the spectrum but I'm not sure. He worked as a wallmart greeter at one point, I remember a video he talked about it.

I can't for the life of me remember the channel's name. It was a nickname. I just remembered his videos the other day but I can't find it anymore and Youtube's search engine being the complete fucking shit it is is not helping.




Protopod! That's the one! Thank you! Good, he's still uploading. I remembered with was something like Potbot or Polnod but I couldn't remember the exact name.


this wiz must figure out how to lift a 700lb granite countertop within a month or so. i can move them around fine with some support brace thigns i've made, but to lift them out of the braces and onto cabinets… there is a lot of hurdles. joists aren't exposed so i can't rig a pulley system to reduce its weight

An engine block crane is a good general purpose means of getting heavy things off the ground and manipulating them around.


interesting i've never seen such a device. the wheels look very weak for something that says 2 tons on it.


Snacking on little crumbs of salt


Look up blow up furniture lifters and 4 wheeled platforms

A few weeks ago I reread an instruction booklet my folks ripped up in the 90s for an SNES game (mainly because they cared more about my education than my opinion towards them, believe me).

One thing I forgot about it was that it entertained me better than the game itself.

That's as far as I can explain without beginning to sound too senile even for myself.


The unit weighs 88 pounds. Your granite weighs 700. Add 25 for extra chain and strapping. Say 820 pounds dispersed over six solid high-impact polypropylene castors on half-inch axels. Each wheel needs to hold less than 150 pounds. A bicycle rear axel is less than half an inch but it can sustain several hundred pounds of rider and the weight of the bike.


How is a site visited mostly by NEETs with no real life friends so fucking slow?


in my experience very few people here and in general are NEET let alone hikki, it seems pretty rare


Hikkineetism is a life of luxury. Those guys have all the time in the world to play games, draw pictures, learn Blender 3D, learn Japapnese, play Geoguesser, exercise, farm (in Minecraft), and dream. True HKNs are the ones who are too busy for posting on imageborings.


few become NEET by choice. They become NEET BECAUSE they lack the ability to do any of these things. Otherwise they would graduate college and get a cozy programing job.


They pay you to do cerebral shit, they pay you six figures. Anyone capable of it isn't living as a NEET making below minimum wage.


i get the point of food having flavor, but drinks im fine being plain water. it takes maybe two seconds to take a drink of water. pretty sure this is why i dont have tooth problens despite not brushing my teeth. i take a drink of soda and i can feel my teeth weakening, they feel fuzzy and get caked in plaque. i do drink filtered tap water though, the fluorine or whatever in it is probably the ultimate reason my mouth is ok. it all started when the dentists recommended my wisdoms be removed, but without a good reason, i stopped trusting them. all four wisdoms came in fine. it has been great having extra fresh molars. why the hell they want you to remove them is so confusing. why not remove older molars and let the wisdoms fill in their place? i remember my disgusting cousins mouth full of sealants and fillings… he got his wisdom teeth removed and kept his shitty teeth. what a fucking scam


Normies without extended neet periods have no concept of learning skills on their own or managing time by themselves without outer influences guiding them


I disagree. Plenty if not most of Western salarymen still manage to find a creative hobby they enjoy on their own.


he is just lying to himself and others. knows absolutely nobody besides memes and stereotypes

Welcome to the watering hole. You come here to wet your whistle?


Often people will seek hobbies as a way to create a consistent anchor point in their life separate from the inherent instability of home, career and relationships. The shape of a hobby is far more lasting and brings comfort to people. Having a job doesn't erase in people the innate need to have one. Thus they'll go out of their way to have one.

It is true however that those without hobbies will trap themselves into unhealthy coping methods and if they don't yet understand how important it is to have a genuine care for something pure they can live in that wageslave zombie state that you probably understand to represent the majority of the work force. I don't know any statistics, but this group is rotting from the inside so you can generally tell who belongs to it.

I'm sorry. It's more fun to play games and listen to music. Today I did about 8 hours of some dark souls mod, it's pretty fun.
My food order is arriving soon, then I'll watch a cartoon or something and then play more games until I sleep. That's all my life has been so I don't really know what to contribute even if I understand that the site can only persist by sharing at least something.

I guess I can share that if you ever find yourself worked up over something it's good to remember how it actually relates to the life you live and you may find the direct influence is almost non-existent. Mostly applies to internet-related woes. There's nothing to really be upset about, even the slowness of a website you like.


what mod


The only one I've ever seen name dropped anywhere; Daughters of Ash.
It's got some cute ideas but it's mostly a progression and placement shuffle so you don't play as mindlessly as otherwise.

It pisses me off a lot actually. Intelligence is the most important thing in the world (as long as you have no illness preventing you from using it). You can gain knowledge but a lot of knowledge is being gatekept either by money or knowing the right people. The information you get on the internet is outdated and bad for the most part.

Being dumb is so frustrating. I'm so bad in online games because I lack game sense so I run around like a headless chicken and get outplayed and then because I'm dumb I can't tell what I did wrong.

With things like investing advice I can't tell what is good advice and what is someone trying to scam you.

Usually dumb people make up for having people skills but as someone posting on this site I obviously don't have them.


Everything is feeling so bizarre, but i think its just a feeling in my head

Warm Sunday morning. Will have a nice warm breakfast when the sun comes up. Then I will have a nice warm lunch. And, with any luck, I aim on having a nice warm dinner too. All while watching anime, reading doujin, and listening to music.

Perhaps you's leveling up, seeing things in a way they've never been sawn before.


Today I was going to do no games because it's been too much too long for a week or so. I'll try minimize the mindless browsing too but that's tricky for me. There is a definite art to juggling menial consumer hobbies to prevent them from going stale or putting a damper on your mind. Knowing when to let yourself be bored is a key part of this art. When you've chosen to be bored for the day it's a different experience from the struggling of the involuntary lethargy. It's more conductive to generating impulse type motivation as opposed to stress-venting complaints and redirections.

At least that's the idea, I'll turn off the internet now.


nice 4chan pic, outsider.


Thanks, I saved it from Wizchan 2019. You're free to save it and use it yourself. It's a great picture!

everytime i watch a light/white background youtube video, i'm reminded how fucking annoying the UI is

white ui on a white background. jesus fucking christ


Yeah it's nuts. Going back to Windows 98 there were cursor options that used the inverse colors of the pixels below it so there'd always be contrast. Surely there must be some equivalent function in whatever massive graphics library is needed to handle YouTube's UI

Just bought a hair trimmer, can't wait for it to get here. I'll be shaving all this disgusting, smell/dust/dirt/food catcher hair and beard. I'll be shaving so close to the scalp I'll look like an egg, it's going to be really refreshing.

Dreams about being blackmailed over something I didn’t do and everyone turning against me, with cameos from people at school 20 years ago.
It’s bad dream season.


One of the best purchases I've made. I use a guard number 3 (meaning 3/8 of an inch) on my crown, sides and back, then a guard number 2 (2/8 of an inch, so 1/4) on the lower part of the sides and back. After that I cut the forward part of the top with scissors because I want it a little longer (nothing wrong with a complete buzzcut for those who prefer them, though). Took me only a couple of times to get reasonably good at it, and it has saved me a lot of money and time. All wizards who just want a simple short haircut and specially those who dread going to the hairdresser's should consider this.


just saw for the first time someone using f.i. to mean 'for instance'

i immediately understood what it stood for and i'm now wondering why i haven't seen it before

People are stuck using latin 'exempli gratia'


I still don't know what Anti-Crawl Thread is


It's a place you can write unrelated, short posts in an attempt to make the site more active. It kind of works but wizchan is incredibly dead for the past few months. I remember some time ago I would go to sleep and 8 hours later there would be 30 to 50 new posts and now there's like 6 or 7 sometimes in the same period of time. Also good luck having any conversation at all on /hob/, it's a shame.


>wizchan is dead
I wonder why…


Well, every single ib excluding 4chan is, I guess the format is quickly going out of style and getting replaced by stuff like discord and reddit. This is a big problem for me, I'm really used to having my human interaction through imageboards and I don't want to make the transition to those sites.


lol I'm laughing


People are getting fed up with the toxicity of imageboards. The format is the one that works best for me, too, but the culture that anonimity encourages is one of sheer negativity and toxicity.


I hate amazon. They said my package would come friday but came today. My sister found it when she came back and announced and now my mom knows and asked me if I ordered something. She actually probably saw it but assumed it was for someone else because I had been careful for long but now my sister ruined it.


For discrete packages you can have Amazon ship to the local post office or any business that partners with Amazon to receive mail (Usually drug stores, libraries, community centers). When Amazon says it's delivered you can go pick it up.
