So I heard my little cousins talking about some YouTuber who was a total recluse but apparently he's famous for playing some normie game and makes music.
This YouTuber is described as hot and whatnot but apparently has a slew of disorders and doesn't leave the house.
So it made me think. Any wizards out there who are attractive but just very badly adjusted?

A succubus who was in love with me and some of her friends tied me to a lamp post when I was like 9, and another succubus hit hard on me during a vacation when I was 13. Also found some graffiti with my name and a heart in junior HS, but maybe someone was messing with me.

Nothing after that. Either I got ugly, or older succubi have higher standards re. social fucked-upness.

Must've looked decent at some point though.

Why is learning new things treated differently than other hobbies?

If you play a video game, watch a movie, or masturbate to porn, everyone just sort of accepts that it is ephemeral.

However, when you learn something there is this pressure to remember it, to make sure you don't forget, to make sure you're learning something 'worthwhile', otherwise, what was even the point?

If you remove this pressure, learning is actually enjoyable. Learning in an ephemeral way, not caring if you retain the knowledge, just being happy that you learned something new in that moment.

I'm sure many of you can relate. I'm sure the things you are the best at are things you accidently got good at. No intention beyond just living in the moment and chasing what was interesting to you at the time. I think this mindset can be applied to more traditional study subjects too.

Any thoughts?

For some people learning is very fun and those people are very lucky, I'm sure you've met someone who obsessed over a technical subject like programming or science. The thing is there is nothing you can do in order to get into that hyper passionate state, it's completely unconscious. It goes back to the idea of what truly creates your interests? Why can some people enjoy studying for hours and hours and have fun but others can't stand 10 minutes? I think if you are not born with this ability you are fucked.

When people hear the word "learning" they confuse it with "memorizing". When you learn something, you're acquiring a skill or perspective that's based on the resources or people you happen to consult with; it's a personal experience that way. The brain is wired to recognize patterns and draw conclusions. That's fun. But people are scared by "the pursuit of knowledge" because they think of the multiplication tables and historical dates they were forced to memorize in grade school. It's becomes work and they don't see any personal expression involved.
I don't consider clicking around Wikipedia articles for fun facts to be learning either, which is what some people in this thread seem to talk about. It's like flipping through TV channels. You might find something interesting to explore further and have a genuine interest in, but most of the time you're feeding your brain useless information that I think is more exhausting to it than the "work" of learning. More awareness is always exciting and there's merit to that but learning only really happens when that pressure or motivation to perform well is on you.

This may be a bit of a controversial post but I'm posting this to see what other people think. This is a reflection of me trying to understand my own identity and place in society. I'm finally realizing "normies/normalfags" are not inferior but rather superior to non-normies, at least according to human society's objective standards. Normies are normies because in order to have obscure and esoteric tastes or preferences you need to spend a lot of time on the internet exploring the rabbit holes online. Normies rather than spend a day on the internet are engaging in real life activities with one another. They don't have a lot of time to sample all the different genres of a subject matter to have a more refined taste. For example the average normie doesn't know what wizardchan is because to find wizardchan you need to lurk 4chan or 8chan long enough for someone to mention it. One thing leads to another but only if you put enough time into it. Someone else I know who spends excessive time online uses that time to watch anime and so prefers much more obscure anime than normie/mainstream anime like Dragon Ball or One Piece. Essentially then "normies" are people who have chosen to prioritize real life over virtual activity. They are thus more successful and functioning members of society. Instead of some under-socialized social outcast in his parent's basement. The views of someone without any stake in society and with little interaction with others are bound to be views that aren't mainstream. And just because you're different doesn't make you special or smart. A major blackpill.

What does anyone else think of normalfags? What separates them from non-normalfags? What makes them tick?

You are not superior, because you are literally talking animal.
>at least according to human society's objective standards.
You are not human and cattle don't have society, its called herd.
>They are thus more successful and functioning members of society.
And i should care, because…?
Views of animals are not my concern.
>Instead of some under-socialized social outcast in his parent's basement.
There nothing wrong with that.
>The views of someone without any stake in society and with little interaction with others are bound to be views that aren't mainstream.
>And just because you're different doesn't make you special or smart.
Yes it does, not being animal makes me superior to subhumans like you.
Now its your time to leave.

>according to human society's objective standards
the only objective standard in a human society is that the more you enslaved by it you are, the more you believe in it, the better you are. since when is this the measure of superiority and being a good person? how about judge people in line with actual moral and universally true standards?

i dont get how you can take something that is literally made up and invest so much into it. the standards of human societies mean jack shit, their standards do not have to conform with what is right and what is true.

one thing about normalfags which is pretty obvious but i think needs to be said, they will always placate society, those who they perceive to have authority over them. they will never challenge this authority, they may whine about it but never rebel. they are the perfect slaves in this neo-feudal society.

they are also tightly gripped by the opinions of other people, meaning that they do not put the truth first and foremost. they would put the opinion of some dumbass above what they know to be true out of fear that they offend someone. and maybe were the same way in real life, but at least on here we can speak our minds without fear. we are closer to the truth than they are, for that reason alone we are better than them, nothing else further should be needed.

Anybody else feel like their tastes in life have stagnated? I keep looking back at shit that used to make me happy at earlier points in my life. Rereading the same old books, playing Ratchet and Clank and some old C&C games from when I was younger. I keep looking back at Albino black sheep and reliving those crappy flash animations trying to feel something again. Anybody else reliving the past?

fits this thread really, ironic how people here especially seem not motivated to do anything anymore, yet some are enough to go out of their way to shit on anything popular

thankfully i never really had that big of a problem with stagnation, i can watch shows or play games i really like again and again and find something new every time, sometimes i rewatch a show after years and understand it completely different, after i finish something and found it really good i try to consume everything there is about that before moving on to the next thing, also my taste evolves, like i am starting to get interested in genres i have not cared about for many years before.
maybe it has something to do with me feeling pretty hopeless for all my childhood and youth, so whenever i had the chance to get my hands on some anime or games i really could appreciate them, but that's just how it was and still is for me personally.

agree with others opinions on youtube etc., i try to limit my exposure to scrolling through imageboards, reddit, memes, even reading through youtube-comments to a minimum. Just take playing mobilegames, where they want you to come back to work for them daily and click through all the shit to get your instant presents like gacchas. I think that could really fuck with your short-term-attention-span, but younger people will feel that way more in the future maybe, wonder how that will turn out.

That's the hard balance of social media. If you wanna find new things, sometimes you have to engage in it a little. But its very easy to get caught up in whatever petty and pointless culture wars people are constantly waging.
Some call that "discourse brain" and I've definitely struggled to move out of it. I deleted all my accounts and have installed certain apps to hide comment sections.
Makes it easier to actually do what I set out to look for.

 No.176050

My tastes have absolutely stagnated. I haven't listened to any new music in the past 3 or 4 years. I don't watch new anime only old ones that I have seen a million times, same with manga, and I don't play games at all. I have moved one to some more IRL hobbies but even those seem to not have truly taken hold yet. I'm like a crab whose in the middle of switching his shell.

I think what bothers me about it all is that I cannot tell if it's because I'm growing old or if because everything is so shit these days. I guess it doesn't matter, the effect is the same, I'm a jaded person it seems.

 No.176147

This has been happening to me for a while now. I noticed that I rarely watch new movies, but I often rewatch old movies that I like. Same with music.
I don't think it's because the old stuff was better, in fact I think the new things are better on the few occasions where I listen/watch it. But I still get pulled back into the old stuff anyway.
I think my life is so shitty and hopeless that watching old stuff is how I relive my happier times.

I struggle with this pretty bad then binge hard on new stuff maybe once every couple months. Why let it bother you? Older WAS better

I just do some bodyweight exercises every second day (three sets of one push, pull, leg and core exercise each) and cardio on some of the off days. There's a roster of exercises I cycle through and I try to learn some calisthenics skills every once in a while. I don't enjoy working out so I keep the workouts relatively short, usually around 30-45 minutes. That's the only way that'll keep me from skipping constantly. Stretching still is a fucking pain in the ass though.

>Finally, your point about estrogen increasing with testosterone is wrong, the production of estrogen works different to testosterone (as in, they both need different things to produce), having high test wont mean your estrogen will be high as they arent related.
Not that wiz but testosterone is converted into estrogen by aromatase, hence why using steroids can result in gyno. If you have excess of any hormone your body will attempt to regulate it, either metabolically or through production of inhibiting hormones.

Do you guys already prepared for retirement?

I start working blue collar job from 21 until 31 Y.O.
Actually I hate my jobs but I also have no skill for other jobs. Always feeling down and depressed when I work. Also I'm social retard and have no friend in my working place.

Frequently I think to quit my job but I need money to support myself but it seems I can't working more than 3 or 5 years again since its make me always think to end my life.

well there are various debates on the best way to passively invest. but they all amount to the same in the big picture. yeah if you're going to invest your $$$ anywhere, its the simplest and easiest thing to do. If you go down, you take the whole world with you, and probably comfy retirement was out anyway.

I was reading The Giver and there’s this chapter where the elder, the giver, decides to finally transmit his favorite memory to the young boy who was preparing himself to be his replacement. This memory turns out to be a memory of an idyllic Christmas family celebration, and when I read that it got me thinking about what were my happiest memories, and immediately after about what were the happiest memories that humans can have in the course of their lives. So I searched for “happiest life moments” to see if there existed already a consensus on this, and I found that among what is regarded for many to be the happiest moments of life and consequently their happiest memories there is nothing I’ve had.

>The research revealed that men are happiest at 40 whilst succubi hit their positive peak at 38– citing being fit and healthy, having a great group of friends and feeling confident in their appearance as the main reasons for their bliss.

>The findings show that loving relationships outweigh money and material gains with life’s top ten happiest moments dominated by friends and family.

My happiest memories are of me playing in a cybercafe with some childhood friends, and times when I laughed so hard I could cry, but it's been so long that now it's all blurry and almost forgotten. Happiness in life and the remembrance of said happiness from what I read seem to be so dependent on relationships that is almost a cruel joke.
These past years, for example, even though I'm sure I've experienced some joy, those moments of joy… I cannot remember them and I think that is because I've been alone in every single one of them. It also reminded me of that time when I met my math teacher by chance one evening, I was 15 driving my bike near my old school, and the first thing he asked me was if I still kept in touch with my buddies from that school, I lied to him not to disappoint him, and he replied "That's good. I'm happy to hear that. Never lose touch with your friends. Never because those memories of you and your friends will stay with you forever." he said this agitated and I could see an expression of regret in his face but I remember this clearly because he truly meant and felt that and I even wrote it down in my diary.

Now it's too late for friendship and trying to get those happiest moments that we see in this top ten, and many could argue that most people live unforgettPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Part of the reason why I'm a wizard is because this world disgusts be greatly, this stupid materialistic world full of shallow people that behave more like mindless stupid sheep than actual thinking rational humans, this world that worships money, power and status, that tells you that if you work hard enough you will make it but actually very few people actually have happy fulfilling lives.

This disgusting world where people cheats and lie to each other, in this horrible rotten world even people you're supposed to trust betray you for their own benefit.

I was thinking about this all day, if I lived in a happy sincere world like those in anime maybe I would participate in society,maybe I would get a job, maybe I would get a cute pure wife, maybe I would contribute to my community.

But this horrible world worth is not worth being a part of, that's why I'm a NEET, that's why I don't engage with others, that's why I refuse to play a rigged game, the saying that the only way to win a rigged game is by not playing is so true.

Nobody has a happy fulfilling life. They have a phase where things happen as they wish it should, that makes them exhilarated and all happy. Then they are back in square one where they complain about life being materialistic, unfair like a bitch. It's that time in your life
>This disgusting world where people cheats and lie to each other, in this horrible rotten world even people you're supposed to trust betray you for their own benefit.
You do the same thing, but you cope with it by denial. You never focus on the time when you did the same thing and justified it to cope.

You don't engage because you're delusional and you think people are after you. But shit you not, nobody cares to give you a thought for a second
