Any of you guys have experience with ghosts, aliens, cryptids or the supernatural?

A coworker of mine lives in a house where the lights turn on and off without reason. He has security camera footage of his locked Truck cab passenger light turning on at 5am in his garage…

Perhaps the fault occurs at night as condensation accumulates in the wire loom, closing the circuit until the heat from the short opens it again. Generally the approach of magicians is to accept all incidents as they are reported, so a Wizard wouldn't doubt what your coworker has documented. If it's part of series of related incidents, then it may require a magical intervention to resolve

I've experienced a few paranormal things in my lifetime.
One case in specific is so surreal that it would be hard to describe without sounding like I was making stuff up.
There's been other cases of paranormal events in my life apart from that one, which probably affected me the most because up until that point, there were things that were happening to myself but could be attributed to my own self affecting these things, but after that incident I've come to realize that some of these things that were happening to me were actually real and not some form of delusion or whatever.
It's gotten to a point where I've started doubting my own self and reality as a whole, some of the things that were happening throughout my life lead me to question reality and if I am being manipulated in some way to maybe think that I'm more special than I really am, but given that one incident that happened to me, it seems more likely than not that I might really be special in some way.
I mean, there's been stuff that happened in my life that makes absolutely no sense if you think about it logically.
I've been in situations where I've talked about stuff sometimes and used words that I quite literally did not even know the definition of, and still used the word correctly despite that. Then afterwards I looked up the definition and it was correct, quite literally making use of information that I not only did not have, but even made use of it correctly.
One or two things could have been ignored, but there's just been a completely vast series of incidents throughout my entire life that had paranormal implications that cannot be explained in any reasonable way that it just really affects me more than it probably should.
I've even been in contact with the state after being put in a psych ward momentarily, and I've been accused of paranormal things by the fucking state itself. Imagine my situation, I consider myself unwell, I look for help and I get accused of things that made me feel even less normal than when I came in.
I'm not going to go into specifics about that one incident which changed my entire outlook on life, but I can tell you that paranormal events in this world are very real, and the fact that aliens likely exist from that experience. No, I have not seen an alien, but the thing that took place, in my mind could only have been possible through technology so advanced that only an alien could have been responsible.

Reminder that you can say literally anything about the staff in /meta/. Not every new /wiz/ thread has to turn in to a discussion about the mod's human organ harvesting ring. I'll be extending ban times for the users who frequently derail threads with complaints against us.

OP has stated he doesn't intend to continue using Wizchan due to our policy on admitting to being a crab. He can challenge this rule in /meta/ if he wishes.

The Paralysis Argument
ABSTRACT: Given plausible assumptions about the long-run impact of our everyday actions, we show
that standard non-consequentialist constraints on doing harm entail that we should try to do as little as
possible in our lives. We call this the Paralysis Argument. After laying out the argument, we consider
and respond to a number of objections. We then suggest what we believe is the most promising
response: to accept, in practice, a highly demanding morality of beneficence with a long-term focus

>https://globalprioritiesinstitute.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/MacAskill_Mogensen_Paralysis_Argument.pdf


imagine you’re deciding whether to redeem a coupon for a free movie. If you go, you’ll need to drive to the cinema. By
ffecting traffic throughout the city, you’ll have slightly impacted the schedules of thousands or tens of thousands of people. The average life is about 30,000 days, and over the course of a life the average person will have about two children. So — if you’ve impacted at least 7,500 days — then, statistically speaking, you’ve probably influenced the exact timing of a conception event. That different child will now impact all sorts of things as they go about their life, including future conception events. And then those new people will impact further future conceptions events, and so on. Thanks to these ripple effects, after 100 or maybe 200 years, basically everybody alive will be a different person because you went to the movies

Now Im on graphic design and animation, but I dont give a shit about it, cause most of the classes are dumb fillers of pure theory (which I hate cause im a brainlet), I just want to work with my hands, not listen to an idiot all day. I didnt went to class today because its so boring, I hoped ritalin would help but it didnt. Now what? Is it okay to be a min wage slave? should I go for it? or should I sacrifice my mental health so I can draw as a job?
And how can I deal with pressure? Help me Wizs

It's pretty obvious from a lot of the answers on here that most you guys don't have any real life experience and giving advice to OP out of ur ass or what you've read on the internet. Like this guy >>197979 suggesting you to work for a startup. Startups are extremely competitive… this normalfag guy I know who's not even mentally ill or anything, has been fired out of 3 startups he was working for.

Also stop shilling the trades meme as well, 98% of the trades won't get you a job, It's only the really complicated trades like electricians, HVAC that get hired, others have a difficulty finding a job without moving to bumfuck nowhere.

I suggest to you OP to do whatever you feel like is least stressful, that pays OK amount of money.

Depends what you mean by a "job." If the goal is just to make some cash to scrape by with, there's a lot of opportunity to work under the table as a hired hand in the US in the right kind of place because your main competition is drug addicts and mexican day laborers. There's your foot in the door if you really want to work on getting whatever official qualifications you might need for a real job, all while you learn more doing the real thing vs. at a trade school.

Yes, I'm speaking from experience. Although I eventually I landed a desk job again doing what my resume says I'm good at.

I know this site is for 30 year olds only, but thats why Im here, to ask you a very important question.
I am a 21 year old crab. I know Ill turn into a wiz in 9 more years. Heres the thing…If I cant make connections with people in college and am the scum of society, I dont think its worth contuining my major, reddit says I shouldnt drop out, but reddit is full of normies who have it easy at life making connections.
What should I do? Drop out or stay?
Whats the most wise thing to do?
I have diagnosed schizophrenia and my parents and theraphists already said that it was okay if I drop out. Honestly, Im considering it because Im hating it, I already tried 2 times and failed the first majors I chose, I dont have hope for the next ones.

I started college (far from home) 7 years ago, barely passed anything because of a mix of depression and dumb mindset…abused pot and porn… enrolled again this year (local college) and i'm doing pretty good… while i did manage to better myself, it was still hard "goin out".. but i pushed through.. what made it easier is being home and just not fiving a fuck..yes they laugh at my sperg but i dont care, i showed up again and again and i'm killin it… I was the underdog, but these fuckers realized who dey messing with… i have this wierd confused look and posture and opinions were formed as such that was not to my benefit (teachers explaining 50iq stuff and me having questions but not engaging ^, whatever i can find what i need on the net or in books)… I wonder why i do that.. nontheless, laughs have diminnished and inquiries have been made *aon, this, anon that* i still hold (a grudge?) in that i dont socialize, but who gives a fuck… it is still mostly my timidness… I dunno…what i want from this is the damn paper and wfh.. could go into industry (mechatronics), but my plan is to build/fix machines at home…
Shed light not blood..(huh?). I hope i can live up to the standards i hold dearly/have acquired and refine them and consequently myself into a.. you know what… Fuck this goddamn world, its me +mom,grandma and my chickens who give me the most insight, other birds i like also, but rarely see now due to winter… Bird songs i love very much, miss them…
Dont let it bother you, i even stopped going out for a smoke in between classes..just limit unpleasenteries, and do some work…its easier to learn when i'm there, so i look for books that pertain to that what was the subject of the previous class to make it more interesting and lo n behold, shit sticks… You r n ambivalent being and as such have many interests.. sharpen the tool from both sides (do they say that?).. and know the truth (fellow?) wiz… I hate it all, and love the naivety and seriousness and the hide n seek of my perception/understanding

That depends on a variety of different things.
I don't know you, so I can't give a very specific advice for how you should decide to live your life from now on and forward. So with that, I am going to use my own self as an example, and hope you have some of the same feelings that I might have.
I have no education, I have never worked a job for very long in my life, basically I've spent my life so far being a NEET and an outcast without a social network.
I spend a lot of time imagining myself in different situations that may happen to me in life if I take the correct decisions and actually spend time working on it. There's first the question of whether putting effort into doing these things, so you can fit into a mold in which you are able to take part in society, is actually worth doing. For you to be able to decide this, I would first try and ask myself one thing; am I able to be happy? Take everything and put them aside, is your very self able to find happiness? Do you stumble upon it when you live your life right now? And if you do stumble upon it, then how often? If you find yourself enjoying your life and have no problems with reaching a state of happiness, then I would recommend you to try and apply yourself, as the benefits of doing so could pay off. If you are like me, however, and you have a difficult time being happy on your own, then using myself as an example, I would try to figure things out differently, because putting effort into fitting in could make me even more miserable than I am right now. I've spent time with a mentality where I think to myself: Oohh, if only I had THAT, then I would be happy, if only I did THAT, then life would be worth living and the older I get, the more I realize that it's not that simple. I've been in possession of a small sum of money before, and I've been thinking to myself about how I spent that money on things that were expensive, they lost their appeal completely not long after. Part of the appeal to certain things in life, is the very concept that they are unreachable. As soon as you reach them, then many times they can lose their appeal. There's no one or two things to make someone happy, it's a combination of a lot of different things, some of which include the individual itself. I imagine things in my head, reaching certain positions in life, imagining that if I did, I would finally be happy. But what would really shatter everything would be if I achieved those things and thePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Do you have any recommendations on how to learn correct investing strategies? Whenever I look at the stock market, crypto, or any other type of investing it just seems like gambling.

I'm not that guy, but I've made a pretty penny investing in crypto (ponzi schemes).

One more 10x and I'm basically set for life and I can retire. If crypto recovers in 2-5 years and the prices shoot up again, then I will have made enough money to put into dividend paying stocks and retire for the rest of my life.

I'm taking a risk, but so what? I'd rather gamble and have a shot at retiring and then living the best live possible, than saving the meager money I do save from my job, which would never let me retire on it's own.

Basically, if you aren't investing your money, you will stay poor forever.

You don't have to read 1 investment book to learn to invest.

All you have to do is invest while stocks and markets are at all time lows, then wait until they gain significantly in a frenzied mania.

You can gauge market sentiment pretty easily through news, various forums and looking at the charts and see if they have rallied significantly.

Never invest in a stock or crypto that has recently rallied because by that point, you are too late. Always invest while the market is dead, in a cold bear market, when everything is basically down extreme levels.

You also need to know when to sell. If a crypto asset or stock goes 5-10-20x in a short amount of time, that is the time to sell. Never accumulate in a frenzied over bought market.

Crypto is pretty dead right now, which is a prime time to do you research on the cryptos you like and start putting in some money. You don't need to catch the absolute bottom, but you do want to get as close to the bottom as possible and I believe the crypto market is currently close to the bottom right now.

Beware of scams in this space though and ponzi schemes because there are a lot of them. Even though something might be a ponzi scheme doesn't mean that it can't make you money.

A lot of zoomers are victims of circumstance and are virgins by chance, they mistake this in their mind as virgins by choice, and given the current climate of crabs being school shooters, forced to label their confused zoomer brains as volcels. They don't carry any trauma,mentall illness, or hate for society that shunned them like oldcels and truecels because, like mentioned earlier, they are just victims of this decades culture. They have nothing binding them to wizardry besides memes they saw on le secret hideout for epic redditors called da wizchansdotorg. Due to being newfags they overthink and overvalue the rules.

Depends, the minimalist position says that you can be a party animal with clear social tendencies and with tons of friends, bit as long as you remain a virgin you're a wizard

The maximalist position says that unless you're a massive NEET loser that spends 20 hours a day watching anime and playing games while doing nothing productive at all you're not a wizard

Interesting that this post mirrors my experience quite a bit.
I'm really uncomfortable about the fear of unknown and get really anxious about new experiences. I don't like to test myself and don't like to start something new or see the results of my work in fear that they will be uncomfortable in some way. I ghost people, I've become a shut in neet. I'm ashamed of going outside and someone recognizing me. I'm almost 25 and I have some moments of clarity where I fear I'm on a road to annihilation; but they go away when I'm zombie like state as I waste away my life in the internet fapping or some other useless shit. I never had a job, sometimes I apply to jobs but then I'm too scared to open my email because I think it would be discomforting. I wonder if my brain is always in self preservation mode or something like the part of brain responsible for fear is on overdrive. I don't think I'm autistic and I can feel other's emotions really well - too well in fact I have to consider myself as oversensitive. I will try this "plan ahead" thing you talk about but I'm really scared. I've tried to fix myself for over 4 years and it always falls apart either I get really depressed or I shut-down emotionally and waste another year. Wish me luck.

I would only want to work in design but I have no talent for it and these kind of jobs are HYPER competitive since they are your typical "dream job" so you have to compete against talented zoomers who graduated from top schools, already got experience + have the health to work 16 hour days… I had no chance to get a job like that when I was young and it's impossible now at 30 with no experience.

I can only focus on something productive 4 hours a day TOPS and every full time job needs you to work WAY WAY more. Even after these 4 hours which people would dream about my energy is depleted and I can't do anything else but relax for the rest of the day. I can't imagine cooking, exercise, chores… on top of that.

I'm also the kind of guy who has to triple check everything important so any kind of job with any responsibility would give me massive anxiety. I remember just small programs breaking because of simple coding mistakes I can't imagine being in charge of a program with 100k lines of code that can lead to thousands of $ in damage if it doesn't work.
