Have there been any philosophers who had a sound ideology which they actually practised? Many here (including me) think that a lot Schopenhauer wrote was true, but despite preaching "abolition of the will" he was an impulsive normalfag who caught syphilis in a brothel and beat up an old lady because she pissed him off. Nietzsche was basically a crab who I suspect would have abandoned every one of his principles the minute a succubus [aid him a moment's notice.

Many philosophers like Nietzsche are fun to read because they were legitimately smart people who spent their lives developing cool intellectual concepts, so you actually feel smarter for reading them. Comparison to normgroid self-help literature is ridiculous. People like Jordan Peterson who tell you to clean your room and spew random facts are not necessarily intelligent.

 No.178991

>>178989
Story? There's rarely a story, and when context is provided, it's nothing that justifies such brutality. Africans being torched alive by their kin is a daily occurrence, many such webs are circulating. Maybe he stole a basket of fruit, or was accused of using black magic to make the local succubi less horny. Such petty things and absurd lies are all it takes to rally a whole town together for a public torture.

You're more than welcome to go ask 4chan /gif/ for a dump of African torture videos. South African news outlets report on them all the time too. Ever hear of "necklacing"?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necklacing
It became such a commonplace method of brutal execution that it found its way in to Hollywood as a villainous act. Yet in Africa it's just another way to treat someone who owes you a corn cob's worth of money, or to silence a crying child.

Can normies detect if you're a wizard or a neet? If I ever need to go out in public, I always make sure to hide my power level: shower, brush, comb hair, deodorant, somewhat nice clothes ect.

The last few times I've had a few people turn to look at me and either give me a weird face, or even straight up laugh at me. I've even had one insufferable roastie give me a shit eating smirk when we passed each other.

So what gives?

I'm happy alone, dont talk to anyone irl or online, lack the desire to do so, blah blah blah.

So basically I dont want to die, and thus maintain my health.

But does not socializing at all have effects on my brain? Neurological changes, physical deficits in the brain, and general deterioration of my mental faculties due to not talking to anyone is what I'm worried about.

I can't find an answer on the normie web and am too stupid to research any scientific literature. Do any fellow wizards have the answer? Am I retarded to think about this?

There's nothing wrong with being a hermit who gets all of his socialization from imageboards. In fact it makes me feel a lot worse to talk with other people irl. I have nothing in common with them cuz they all have kids and are married at my age. They would start talking about their careers and other achievements and I have absolutely nothing to show for my life besides going to college. Basically I'm written off as an autistic nobody right off the bat.

Alright, let me tell you the truth. Do you know why you posted this thread? Reassurance seeking. The reason why people feel an urge to state something like 'I am happy" or "My life is good", "It isn't too late" , "I can do this" or, as you said "I feel free" is to convince themselves of something, to seek to be reassured of what they're saying, regardless if it's true or not. But reassurance can easily become a drug and eventually the life of someone can become nothing more than a spiral of "Am I doing right? Is this true?" asked ad nauseam in exchange for temporary relief of an anxiety that can only grow worse and worse in time due to this treatment. End of the story.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranus

I got rather interested in reading Wikipedia articles on rather basic stuff on other planets in the solar system. Mainly because of the music thread about how weird the ambient EM sounds from Jupiter/Saturn are. I stopped on Uranus for a while because:

1 - Just how completely featureless its surface is. Look at the attached picture. Nothing. Absolutely NOTHING. That's an enormous amount of surface area, and not a single feature. That just seems rather unbelievable. Jupiter has its pale red dot. Saturn has hexgonal poles. Neptune has its own dot and storm. Uranus has its axial tilt and weird rings, sure, but on the surface? Nothing.

2 - The surface gravity is lower than Earths, but the rest of the article keeps saying there's no surface, but does keep saying there's ice/an ocean. I'm curious about whether it's possible to send a probe in.

3 - There's a lot of hints that Uranus is crazy old compared to the rest of the planets. It's like it gives the allure that "It was made by the ancient ones" or something.

4 - The EM field and axial tilt is wack.

It's name is unfortunate, however. It feels like you can't really have any serious discussions about it just because of its name.

 No.178763

>>178762
IT is unfortunate about the name. People just make childish jokes and all that. I also think it is a very interesting planet. Uranus and Saturn are my 2 favorites

You can see the banding but it's only visible in infrared. I guess whatever gas it is diffuses a lot of visible light. Apparently because one hemisphere is more consistently lit the methane in circulation in that hemisphere is energized enough to rise high in the atmosphere, and that's what causes the hazing visible to our eyes.

The axial tilt produces unusual weather, because our understanding of seasonal weather involves the Sun energizing both hemispheres, which only occurs in parts of Uranus' orbit. The other problem is a seasonal year there lasts 84 years, so we've only really been observing the atmosphere for a single Uranian year.

 No.178767

it seems like in documentaries and stuff that everyone pronounces uranus as yir-uh-niss. maybe the childish your-anus pronunciation is just american?

 No.178768

Scientists specifically use that pronunciation to avoid the your-anus stuff.

Who else here a Wizoomer? Or as old wizards would say, an "apprentice".

I'm the only one here who thinks that our generation is very different? And I don't mean in the same way that a generation is different to past one, like millenials to Gen X, no. But I mean that our generation is very different from the many generations that had come before us? I can feel certain rage on ours. Even in this very board we can see that the influx of zoomers is more aggressive that the old wizzies who were here before (probably older than us too).

I had the feeling that instead conforming to the wolrd, we're rebelling against it. But I want to know if this is more than ramblings. What do you think?

The thing I hate most about my generation is that it's cool to be (supposedly or actually) mentally ill. To be an actual outcast as a Zoomer is to be somehow even more of a freakish outlier than in previous generations.
Most Zoomers who have wizard-like symptoms (avoidant, depressed, social anxiety etc.) are not friendless virgins because their negative, anxious nature is seen as cool for some reason. It's the most fucking irritating shit ever. If a Zoomer is a depressed wierdo whose favorite things are anime and videogames, he's probably popping xans and fucking hoes in college right now.

I'm a depressed weirdo Gen Z babby who loves anime, and I post on this website. I'd respectfully disagree with your view, since those who claim to suffer from anxiety and depression are usually playing it up for attention, or to cultivate a 'persona'(there's no other way to explain how glibly they take to social media).

>cool to be mentally ill
The normalfags only embrace mentally ill lite they cannot stand actual mentally ill people. Their idea of depression is just being sad not being catatonic and totally non functional.

They only think it is cool to be mentally ill as long as you still fit in and conform. As someone who is not able to function at all because mental illness it always annoys me when I see some zoomer or millennial claiming they are self diagnosed with this or that.

>>178758
Same thing with autism. Tons of attention seeking succubi and socially awkward young men will say they're on the spectrum because they think it makes them look special. Meanwhile the ones who are truly autistic are barely functional. It creates an expectation that because they can function in society that the really fucked up ones must do so too. Just one of the many reasons why I cannot stand normalniggers.

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?

I'm currently struggling to find a job, and the reality of my poor life choice strucked me hard. I feel completely dumb facing the job market. I know I wasted my youth years doing useless things, like searching porn for hours, instead of improving skills that people are willing to pay for.

Entry level jobs in developed countries have good wages, your standards are so low that if you move your poverty mindset will allow you to somewhat appreciate earning more than you would at home, even if expenses are larger, but paired with minimalistic lifestyle, you can make do.
LDAR would just burden my parents, which I don't really feel like, plus I've got my materialistic needs and little dreams, death can come at any moment so it's comforting, like knowing you'll go to bed after a hard day.
Life would certainly look different with NEETbux, welfare or just many opportunities, but generally the older I get the less I care and just accept stuff, without questioning it.

Succeeding socially doesn't have much bearing on intellect. There's literal 89iqs that can pull it off, from what I've seen it's fear and passivity that's the main culprits.

That being said.
If youre in America, have you considered becoming a trucker? I know it's probably not what you're thinking of job-wise but with a few weeks of schooling, which can get covered by a company if you promise to work for them I think, you can get your CDL and start making decentish money.
