I read some people reported that their eyes reversed the process and ended up having worse eyesight than they had, only now with thinned layer due to laser threatment.

are there any fellow neets who are thinking about becoming criminal? who wants to become powerful, self-sufficient, and self-controlling? Sadly, I'm too weak to go down thsi road by myself, and would like to have someone I can lean on, but im friendless.
Would at least like to have a friend who considers himself a bit immoral (one who might not have the values of a normie).

Prime is really wonderful if you like never leaving your house. If you need something on the fly, like, say, a cable or some kind of replacement part or something, you can order it and get it lightning fast. In my region, a lot of products actually have same-day shipping. It basically functions as a complete replacement for having to drive out to stores (with the exception of grocery shopping, although they're trying to branch into that).

Many of you despair at the state of the world and modern consumerism society, but I am here to tell you not to fear because the world that you hate so much is about to end.

The truth is that the data coming back very recently, within the past few years or so has confirmed what climate scientists feared when we first found that methane levels were rapidly rising with no discernible cause: the arctic sea ice is melting and releasing trapped methane into the atmosphere.

Now if you don't know what that means, basically methane is like this evil carbon dioxide you hear so much about except a hundred times worse in terms of the amount of global warming it will cause. As the ice melts, two things start to happen that will result in a runaway rapid warming effect that will completely destroy the current peace and cause billions of deaths including the extinction of other species besides humans. The first is that the physical presence of the ice over a large area in the arctic acts like a kind of reflective mirror that helps reflect some of the energy coming in from the sun. With that melted, that light no longer gets reflected and instead absorbs onto the surface somewhere and radiates heat into the atmosphere. The second thing is that pockets of methane that are trapped in the ice shelf will release into the atmosphere. Both ice on land and in the sea contains large amounts of methane and any instability in that ice is game over and the ice has been destabilized. The last time we had a mass extinction, an event where over 95% of all species on earth went extinct, the cause was because of rapid increases in methane from the arctic ice melting. We're already seeing mass extinction happen with estimates of the current rate of extinction at about 1000 times higher than usual.

Most of our climate change models predicted a slow and steady linear increase in temperatures, but that's not what the data show is happening at all. The effects appeared slow and linear for a while, but now we're seeing a sudden acceleration that is corresponding to an exponential increase, not a linear increase in atmospheric methane levels that has been happening for over 10 years now. We fucked up. It's too late now to ever prevent large scale social collapse. There will be famine and drought and war, billions displaced and starving. No doubt there will be a revolution and the current order will fall.

Here is a good paper about this by a scientist who haPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Been getting back into studying climate change and disaster scenarios and came across a new book. The guy who wrote this NY Times op-ed just published a work on existential risks, “End Times: A Brief Guide to the End of the World.” Could be a cozy read for a certain type of wizzie!

I know I am being nitpicky. But what this book implies from it's text is quite false. Humans were actually largely uninterrupted from the Toba eruption compared to what pop scientists liked to talk about the le bottleneck theory. Every natural disaster was and will be unable to end the human race itself quickly. It would still be able to destroy the industrial society as it has done in the Americas but a total extinction of the human race would take quite a while.

I know most people would ask why would anyone want to be a laughing stock town fool of the internet? But way back to childhood days, the only options I ever had were to be an ignored quiet mouse or a loud wacky cartoonish entertainment monkey. Mouse or Monkey thats it. And so I became a local celebrity of my school days. Sometimes I would get resentful that they were laughing at me, not with me, mocking me, teasing making fun. Like the lolcows of the internet. But after trying to be serious in college, and just being totally ignored, I realized that attention beats isolation, and its the only means of socialization I know. For the last few years I've retreated back into my mouse role, and have had almost no human contact.

Its just seems like the cringe lolcow role of the internet, is basically like being the local clownish celebrity that I spent my whole school years being. Its a way to turn the strange weirdness into a commodity. I see folks who are less weird and less comedic getting audiences of millions. Maybe I could do it. Although I have the flaw of speaking in a way thats so cringey its boring, rather than so cringey its hilarious. But it just seems like my old weirdo class clown cartooning but with an audience of millions. Maybe it was my calling.

And then some of these guys actually make money on this shit through youtube ads and patreon, being a cringe is literally their full time career.

Yeah it should be remembered places like 4chan used to be the home for psychos where they'd encourage people to kill their pets. I remember one thread where a succubus microwaved her housemates rat before putting it in a blender, setting it on fire, and posting images of it on her naked breasts. The internet has many more places for people like that to congregate and many more people brain-dead from drug abuse who are just aggressive retards now. The line between lolcow that's funny and lolcow they want to punish and hurt is a thin line. Failed-normans are a malicious crowd online.

Well, of course. RotW is a somewhat abnormal person (not even a "lolcow", really, he just dresses funny and is kind of awkward) and has meme-status, so they'll torment him all the same. It really has nothing to do with the subject of their videos, if you're slightly outside the norm or (over)react to provocation in abnormal ways, you open yourself up to these rotten people.

I notice some of the more "self-aware" lolcows who think of themselves as minor e-celebs, really work to cultivate their fan base and community. They don't just hang aloof as performer to be watched. They actively engage their community. Hosting their own forums or discords. Constantly chatting back and forth with their "fans".

Its not like hes the show, and they are the fans. But like they are one community, and he is both a member and participant in the community and also the object of it.

Dropped out to play DAoC all day when I was 12 or 13, and never went back because WoW came out 3 years later. I'm 32 now, family is rich so I will never be forced to get a regular job; as a matter of fact I'm going to administrate my dad finances when he gets too old for that shit. Dropped videogames as well some years ago, nowadays I just travel to remote places where life is cheap and get royally fucked up with a vast assortment of mind altering substances.

Any wizzies here exercise? Whether calisthenics, weightlifting, cardiovascular, or other. Share the reasons why you do/don't exercise, what you do, etc..

I tend to agree with Socrates: “No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”.

Ok, this was a lot harder then I though. Workout really kicked my ass.
Basically the workout is based on flexing rather then weight resistance.
I think once I get it down, I will modify some movements, add in some, and take out others to better reach my fitness goals. For now I am just doing the routine as laid out.

Have any of you guys tried "forcing" yourself to become asexual? People on quora (https://www.quora.com/Can-you-become-asexual-by-trying) say that you're born asexual, just like you're born gay, lesbian, trans etc. and that you can't make yourself change your sexuality by you power of will.they also say that being asexual is a hassle in this oversexualised society, but wizards prefer a solitary lifestyle away from society, so it's not a problem for us, right?
The reason I'm asking is because I tried to do just that for the past few years. At first, anything that looked like a succubus or her certain body part would make me hard. But after reading some biology books, watching a few documentaries and through my sheer power of will I successfully managed to make myself not attracted to succubus boobs, 3d and 2d. They don't evoke any kind of response from me anymore, so it's definitely possible to "change" your sexuality and what you're attracted to. I still feel attraction to ass and wide hips and I'm working on that. If any of you guys successfully managed to stop being attracted to ass, please let me know how you did it.
Wouldn't it be nice to not feel any sexual attraction to succubi at all?

just to add a little bit. Now I can talk to succubi at work without feeling bad or afraid. I know that they don't/won't like me, and that's OK. In the past, I think I would struggle speaking with them, trying to get to get close to them. But now I think I treat them like I treat men. Occasionally, my brain or mind will like how a succubus looks, I may even feel like a "crush" might start to develop. After a masturbation session and talking to them again, you realize that no, you don't "like" this succubus, what you liked was her shape and body, which you can easily find online and probably will get bored after a week. Also, in the weird chance that you do like this succubus, she is probably in a relationship and/or will never objectively like you, so you should stop wasting your time thinking about it.

Sorry it turned out longer than "a little bit", but I think more people could benefit from this. Also, it's nice to finally talk about my "strategy".

I hate how sexual lust transforms me in to a craving beast, as soon as it's over I feel it disappear and hate what I was in the moment. Now I'm less depressed it's even more clear how compared to the state existence I desire sexual arousal is a perversion of everything good in me.

Does anyone else suffer from this issue? It seems to me that I have trouble constructing sentences when I am talking to people in real life, and even I get my words mixed up when I talk to myself on camera (I make video journals for myself). The issue gets worse when I argue with someone and my words get slurred. I am jealous of people who can quickly form sentences while I need sometime to make up those sentences. I see these same people who can make fluid conversation and I sometimes wonder if there is something wrong with me. It's like they know instantly what to say and how to say it.

A bit of history: When I was a year old I suffered from a seizure that delayed my ability to articulate speech until the age of 7. My mother told me that when I was 5 I could only speak a couple of words. I was in speech classes in school up all the way to 6th grade.

How does one improve speech?

I can barely form an entire sentence without pausing to think if there's some better way of saying it. Thankfully, there's no one I really wanna speak with in real life so the problem isn't too awful for me.

I have speech issues, I think it was a combination not being socialized well when I was little, physical abuse, and living in a home with an increasing mold problem that neurologically screwed me over till it got so bad every day I would feel ill until I started doing everything I could to take care of it myself. Which did work to a large extent, I'm a lot better than I used to be but I'm sure I have some permanent brain damage.

I also know that I now have electro hyper sensitivity and when exposed to too much computer radiation, screen, or wifi/high densities of cell phone radiation my communication abilities go down the toilet. So shielding all that and using a low resource system helped that too in recent years which I'm sure was an increasing byproduct from when the mold toxin issue got out of control and completely wrecked my neurological system.
